KOOTENAV  Has   a    Mineral   Output    of   Upwards   ot   One*  Million    Dollars    Every    Month  In   The   Year  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  DEC EM/BEE Ml, L898  TWO   DOLLARS  k  h  J!)  i  *';  i',l*  OLD   DIRECTORS  RE-ELECTED.  Sir Joseph Trutoh ancl Robert Day continue on  the Hall Mines Board.  At tho annunl meeting of the Hall Mines  which was held' in London on Thursday  December loth, Sir Joseph Trutch and  Robert Day wei e ro-elected a.s directors,  and a vote ot thanks to the chairman and  board wa-* passed.  Tlie cliiel" feature of the meeting was  the defence which II. E. Croasflaile, the  company's general manager, madeagainst  tlie charge of extravagance, and his predictions with respect to the profits which  the company could reasonably expect from  the operation of the smelter plant on custom ores. With respect to. the charge of  extravagance he said:'  "One of themines at Rossland has been  the mine besides our own. prior to Lhe  last few months, that has been producing  a large tonnage of ore. During the twelve  months ending August .1st last, .hut-  mine was working an average of over "200  men and had 22 power drills constantly  in use. and during the twelve months produced 51.500 tons of ore. During the same  twelve month-; we had employed an average ot l(i" men, we had never more than  eleven power drills in steady use, and we  produced 51.010, tons of ore. The cost", per  font at the mine I refer to for tunnelling  and drifting was $I7.S8; at the Silver  King, for tunneling and drifting SI ..50;  for shafts for sinkini**, ��� $82 IS, against  $10(51 at the Silver King; for raising  $'27.1(5, a train at $20.70: for extraction per  ton, $2 02, shipping from broken down  sfcopes, against $8.1."3 breaking aud shipping. 1 am satisfied that a short consideration of the figures L have given will show  you that no charge of extravagance will  lie in regard t.o current expenditure."  Mr. Ci o-daile t hen dealt, with tlie prospects of the company in regard to outside  ,01 cs. ancl said if the rale of increase i:i the  past two year.-- could bo maintained it  would not bo long before tlie outside ores  would be an important, factor in I.heir  smelting operations. This referred to  smelting copper ore--, but an other direction  i'} which t heir smelting operations could  -be extended was by treating silver-lead  ores, of which a large tonnage was produced in the neighboring Slocan district,  and of which a good yield was also assured  from different points in Kast Kootenay.  lie pointed out the immense advantage it  would beif therompany were able to work  up a smelting business that would pay an  annual dividend- -even if at lir-a* a small  one- on 1 he capital. lie considered a  dividend from that, source would be of infinitely greater impoitauee than a dividend of double or even treble the amount  paid out of the profits f 1 om the mine.  The one dividend would be earned by a  manufacturing industry, whose earnings  time would tend to steadily increase,  while the other would be gained by the  extraction of ore, and with every dividend  paid the resources of the mine must steadily decrease. During the past year, working under great disadvantages, had the  ."58,-170 tons of Silver King ore smelted been  an outside ore, and purchased by tlie  smelters at the same price as this company  paid for outside ore, and with a low treatment rate charged, the smelting operations would have showed enough profit to  have paid a 10 per cent dividend on the  o'rdinary shares.  ���    THE   FIREMEN'S   SMOKER.  The Nelson Fire Brigade Entertain Friends  "With   a   Smoking   Concert.  Chief Thompson and the members of  the Nelson fire brigade are to be congratulated on the success of their holiday  smoking concert, held in the fire hall on  Friday evening. The hall was crowded  to the doors with the audience, who appreciated every number on the excellent  programme provided i'or their entertainment. ''..'-  Alderman Charles -Hillyer presided, and  to the manner in which he carried out  the duties of chairman is due, in a great  degree, the success of the concert. The  programme consisted of songs, recitations,  club swinging, boxing contests, etc.. by  local talent. The Nelson orchestra were  present, and added to the pleasure of the  entertainment with choice selections.  Among those who took part in the program tne.were Messrs. Baker. Colwel! and  Winter with songs; Mr. Foster, club-  swinging ; Messrs. Stutter, Davidson and  Down*-, recitations: Davis and Jeffs,  Partridge and Thompson, boxing con tests  ol" three rounds. During (he evening refresh incuts were served by tlie members  of the.brigade, and when the audience dispersed about If o'clock, everyone agreed  that a pleasant evening had been spent,  and ex-pressed the hope that the fire  briga-1*. wotPd in the near-future repeat  .their-entertainment of last night.

At Tuesday afternoon's session of the  city coucil a, letter was read from IOdward  Cawley iu which he gave a statement of  lhe material furnished by him under his  contract for the erection of the eemetry  i'enee and ou (buildings. 11 was referred to  the city engineer.  A petition was received from Corlett  and others, asking fur the eon;-t 1 'action of  a bridge across Cottonwood creek on that  parr, of Silicia street between Fails and  Railway streets. In this connection a  ietter was also read from Frank Fletcher  to the effect that if the council could not  .-ee its way clear to build   the  bridge as  so asked i'or, but would supply tbe materials, 1 he property owners would perform  (be work. The-petition .and communication was referred to the'.public works  committee1.  Oh motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded hy alderman Madden, it was resolved  that the' place for holding the nominations of the next municipal election shall  be in the fire hall, that,lames l_. Sfrachan  be returning officer, that, the polling plnce  for the east ward shall be in the fire hull,  that the polling place for the westward  shall bear tin* west store in the Hank nf  British Columbia building, and that  Thomas M. Ward be deputy returning  o fTicer.  The curfew by-law introduced by alderman Whalley came up for reconsideration  bur, was deferred un'tii the next meeting  of the council.  LONDON-BRITISH   COLUMBIA L40LDFIBLDS  Directors Present Their Shareholders  With   a  Highly Satisfactory Report'  The annual   report of  the  directors  of  PROFITS OF THE BOSUN OWNERS.  The Property Pays for Itself Twice Over in Five  Months.  ThcMorth WestMiningSyndicate which  has been developing the Bosun mine near  New Denver has had a great streak of  luck, and at the first annual meeting of  the company, which was held in London  last week, the directors had sufficient,  money in the treasury to pay a dividend  of !00 per cent had they wished. No  other mine in 1 he province has made the  record that the Bosun has, nnd its successful development is nothing short of the  marvellous. It is a live month's proposition, yet it has advanced from being a  portion of a ranch to the position ofa  dividend-paying mine. In that time the  properly has not only been developed, but  sufficient ore has been taken out tc make  tho purchase, pay for all expense, and  earn a surplus providing for a 100 percent,  dividend.  T-he first ordinary general meeting of  the company operating the Bosun, whs  held in London on Wednesday last. The  accounts cover a. period of If months,  aud show th'at on December 80th la-1-  these was JCIAQQ cash in hand. Certain  properties have been, acquired, some of  which are held with a view to resale or  future development, and oue property,  of which the syndicate have acquired the  entire rights, is being actively developed.  This property, the Bosun, was secured on  very favorable terms, and almost immediately a rich chute of ore was met with.  Three hundred and forty tons have already been shipped (to November 80th)  from the mine. The ore is galena, containing on an average about 00 per cent  lead and upwards of 100 ounce-, silver,  which has yielded net smelter returns of  about -t'18 10s. per ton. It is estimated  that the lode is La feet long while its  height to Slocan lake, to which it runs  down, make it piobable that no sinking  below water level will be nec-saiy for  years to come. The situation also gives  the important element of the cheapest  possible shipping facilities.  The Tribune as a Daily.  For -ome time past the managers of  Tun Ti'ii'UXi*" have been contemplating  changing the paper from a weekly ton  daily, in order to keep pace with .the  growth of the city and the development  of the district. Ai rangements have now  been completed and with the advent of  the new year, the Daily 'Tru'Uni-: will  make its appearance, the first number of  which will be issued on the afternoon of  Tuesday, January 3rd. The Daily Tribune will be a newspaper ..for the people,  uncontrolled'.by any outside influence,  and will be devoted to the inteiests of  Nelson aiid tbe Kootenay. Arrangements  are being made whereby it will be supplied with an afternoon telegraphic service which will be superior to any other  in the interior of British Columbia, and  although at the start it may not be able  to secure a complete! daily service, just as  soon as the Crow's Nest Pass line is opened,  (about January "lot h) the full news of the  world and of Canada in particular, will  be supplied to our'readers. The advantages of an afternoon paper, giving the  news of the previous twenty-four hours  are apparent, and in entering the daily  field iu a progressive city like Nelson ami  in a rapidly developing country Tiiio Thi-  nu'N'ir. has no apologies to make, and on its  merits will depend for its ��� support. A  further announcement will appear with  the first daily issue.    .  The Mayoralty Contest.  The absence of any excitement over the  mayoralty contest is the most striking  tributeof the ratepayers' satisfaction with  the administration of Mayor Houston.  While lhe administration has not been  perfect, it is safe to say that the ratepayers have every reason to be satisfied with  the manner in which civic affairs have  been conducted during the past year. It  is no stretch of imagination to say that.  .Mayor ilnu-ton has discharged the. duties  of his oflice with judgment. lie has truly  earned a, third term in order that he and  the council, which were returned in his  support, may carry ours-uch arranerements  as in their publi.-hed platform they deem  necessary for the welfare of the municipality. That the welfare of' the city of  Nelson is safe in the administration of  Mayor Houston'is a proposition so generally admitted that tlie re is not much likli-  hoorl of t he ratepayers makingany change  merely for change sake.  Ross Thompson Withdraws.  Ross Thompson has withdrawn from  the mayoralty contest in I.ossland. He  found that his business inteiests would  not allow him to ((spare the time necessary for tlie proper discharge of the duties  of the oflice. He will be a candidate for  alderman.  the Loudon and British Columbia Cold-  fields, Limited, covering the'company's  operations for the year ending September  8O1I1 is'probably as cheerful reading as the  shareholders in any .Uritish Columbia  mining venture have had the pleasure of  reading.  The directors recommended that a  further dividend be paid on the ordinary  shares, which with the interim dividend  already paid, made a total cash distribution at tlie rate of 20 per cent per annum  upon the paid up capital of the company  for the past year. They also recommended l hat 20,000 fully paid shares in the Ymir  Gold mines Lie distributed by way of a.  turrher dividend, the pur value of which  its -��20,000.  The _*mir Mines.  The   Ymir   Cold   Mines,   Limited,   was  formed with a capital of .��200.000 in  200.-  000 ordinary shares,   for  the  purpose  of  taking over the Ymir  gold   mines, which  had been purchased and developed by the  London   ifc British   Columbia  Goldfields.  The mines comprise seven claims and fractions   amoiuiting   to   108 acres,  together  wii h mill site and water  rights sufficient  for the mill.    This property  was handed  over   to  the   Ymir   Gold   Mines and   the  London   Ac   British   Columbia Gold fields  undertook to. erect a  complete   10-stamp  mill i'or the treatment of the ore which it,  was expected would be complete and running by the end  of  the  year.    With  respect to the value of the ore bodies in the  Ymir mines, the  report says  that  when  development   had  been  extensively  carried on J. D. Kendall  was  called  upon to  examine and report upon the sau.e.    His  report not only  confirmed   those  of  Mr.  Fowler, but.stated that 08.000 tons of ore  of a value of $1,128.*20() were then actually  blocked our. Since this time development  work has been steadily advanced, largely  increasing the  reserve and   proving  the  value of the mine at a greater depth.    As  the mine hasalready sufficient ore blocked  out to keep a   lO-stamp   mill   running   for  several years ami i.s   well  situated for exceedingly cheap   working,   the directors  consider that it will in a short  time  rank  among the, leading dividend   paying   gold  mines in British Columbia.  The Whitewater Mines.  The Whitewater mines were  issued by  . 1 hr- I ,i)iid(i!!  -inrl    i.ri'-.isli   C'olnmbi"    '���"*"'���"*.  . .1.  fields with a capital of =��12;"),000 for taking  over and working the Whitewater silver  mines. After thoroughly considering the  subject the company's engineers decided  that to ensure economy in working it  would be advisable to mine the ore body  in its entirety rather than select the clean  ore for shipment first. The shipments to  date have therefore been small, consisting  only of clean ore recovered while driving  tunnel extensions and other development  work. Since the company entered into  possession the reserves of ore have been  doubled and ore sufficient to keep the enn-  coutrator, which has a capacity of 100  1011s per day, supplied i'or several years.  It is difficult to put a value upon ttiis ore  until the concentrator returns arc known,  but the engineer's estimate has been such  that the director's believe that it will yield  a large return upon the capital of the  company. The Whitewater vein has been'  proved on the surface to run right across  the company's properties from the present  workings on the east to the Myrtle R- on  the west. Two other reefs have also been  found, but sufficient work has not been  done to prove their, value. The London  and British Columbia interest in the'  Whitewater'mines is a large one and was  recently increased.  The Ruth Mines, Limited  Is a company with a capital of $120,000,  owning a group of ten claims, covering an  area of 210 acres, which are situated near  the railway at Sandon. The principal  work has been carried out on the Ruth  and Ruth fraction, but another ledge has  been discovered on the Aurora and development upon this is now beingact ually  prosecuted. During- the twelve months  ending June 80th. 007-1 tons of ore, carrying lead and silver, were shipped and the  operation-! of the company yielded a net  profit of ��29,788 l��s. (id. A concentrating  plant'vvill.be'erected upon the property  during the coming spring and a large  quantity of concentrating ore which has  been mined only awaits treatment to  yield good returns. The London _: British Columbia Goldfields interest in the  Ruth is a large one.  The Yukon Golcinelcla.  From information obtained from the  manager of the Yukon Goldfields, the  properties owned by the Yukon Goldfields  are. likely to prove of considerable value,  and consequently 1 he large .number of deferred''or-founder's, shares held by the  London Ac British Columbia Goldfields are  looked upon as an asset of great value.  The principal claim, No. I Bonanza below  discovery,'is being worked by a force of  80 men. and the claim is. expected to produce sufficient gold to give a very satisfactory return on the whole paid up capital of the company.  Tho Companies Other Interests  Include the holdings in the Pyramid Copper Syndicate in Fast Kootenay, upon  which'development is being carried on.  the A Inn group of claims adjniniiu** tin:  Ymir, the Norfolk claims in Cent r:d  camp, Boundary Creek,'and options on t lie  Washington and Slocan Bay which will  probably be taken up.  NO   RECIPROCITY   IN   ORES.  .haii.es are that the United States will Retain  Import Duty Upon Lead. - ,  The present indications are that the  members of the,Quebec commission will  fail in their efforts to patch up a reciprocal treaty between the Dominion of  Canada anil the United States and that  trade matters will be left very much as  they are. It is said that there, is a very  good prospect of having coal placed upon  the reciprocal list, but so far as minerals  are concerned it is said to be out of the  question.  ... It will bo remembered that the Ka��lo  board of trade rondeau effort through the  Canadian commissioners to have the  L-nited States import duty upon lead  bullion, and the lead contents of ore removed. This move was taken in tho interests of the lead miners, in the hope  that they would be able to save tho import duties which were paid upon their  ores. There is, however, not much prospect of the request of the Canadian commissioners being complied with, and it  now rests with the federal government to  see what can'be done in the way of encouraging home smelting.  There are at the present time three  large smelting plants in southern Kootenay, which are practically in the market  for custom ores. When regular supplies  of cheap fuel are available, they should  be able to secure for treatment a very  re-ipectable percentage of the tonnage of  the Slocan and Ainsworth camps provided something is done in the way ol'  looking up a market for their lead  products.  There can be no question but that  greater benefits will accrue to the mining  districts of the province if the federal  government sets itself to the task of  ascertaining what can be done to encourage home smelting rather than facilitating t he export of Canadian ores to American smelters for treatment, ft is only in  this way that the cities of southern Kootenay can be built up. The smelting of  the ores of Kootenay in Kootenay would,  create a local demand for labor, a profitable market for the coal deposits along  the line of the Crow's Nest extension of  the Canadian Pacific railway, it would  provide a tonnage for Canadian railways,  create a, market i'or Candian produce and  manufactures' -i"d give to Canadian  towns a prestige which should be theirs,  hut which, under present conditions, is  ���"���.'.lowed logo to smelting points in'the  f ."..eel ..tCile..  PROFITS OF SILVER, MINING.  British Companies Score Several Successes in  the Slocan this Year.  Tlie general run of good luck which  British capitalists have experienced dur-  i 1 ur the past year in their ventures with  the silver-lead ledges of the Slocan is expected to give silver mining a great boom  in the London market next spring.  For several years the press of the Slocan has been calling attention to the  profits which awaited the investor in tin-  ledges of t he Slocan, and last season's experiences justify all that was yaitl in favor  of such investments.  Several of the important properties of  the Slocan are now being operated by  British capitalists, among which are the  Whitewater, Ruth,'.Idaho, Queen Bess,  Bosun, Wakefield, Comstock, Vancouver  Group and several others. The geneial  experience of these companies has been  that the silver ores of the Slocan carry  higher values than any other ores in British Columbia,and that it costs less to work  a claim in iheSlocan than in most districts.  These two features enable the companies  operating in the Slocan to pay large dividends, and it is the dividend which counts  with the investing public. Next spring  should see twice as many British capitalists operating in the Slocan as there were  during IS9S.  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  The Noble Five company has resumed  shipments;  The Wakefield mine, near Silverton,  has started the season's shipments by  sending out 120 tons of high grade ore.  A good strike is reported from the  eighth level in the Dardanelles, some 500  feet from the surface. There are 25 men  employed on the property.  At the Idaho mines there is a force of  some sixty men employed. The tnamige-  nient is meeting with considerable difficulty in the hauling of supplies and ore  by reason of tlie bad state of the road.  Manager Sandiford, of the Bosun mine,  estimates that there is at least $80,(100  wort h of ore in sight in the lio-un. The  property is shipping at the rale of 100  per month.  Although it was virtually an off year  for niiniug around the Slocan, due largely  to the Klondyke boom. New Denver ni.ide  most encouratring progress iu its growth  as a town. During the year the expenditures made upon tlie construction of cottages aud stores aggregated  -SI.").000.  Shares on the Rise.  Since the London c*. British Columbia  Goldfields report was issued the shares  ha ve been on the rise, and by December  17th they had gained (is. ,'id. Commenting on t his t he British Columbia UN-view  says: "It would seem that investors  have begun to reali/,. that in proportion  to the value and extent of its  assets, the  paid-up capital   of  this  company is very  small, and its shares are  therefore  likely  to prove extremely valuable, in   addition  to which the manafretnent nf the company,  both here and in   British   Columbia is  in  strong hands.    If investors will   carefully  study   the  profit and   loss  account, they  will   note  that  the  comparatively large  sum of -.8150 is charged for  the reporting  and consulting engineers'   fees.    This  at  once explains the policy  of the  company  and   their success.    The   best advice  obtains the most valuable properties, which  is   the  soundest   and    most   economical  policy.     There'' are     many    companies  formed  to operate  in  British  Columbia  woich   would,    without   doubt,   be in  a  flourishing condition  today, enjoying the  confidence of their shareholders and benefiting the province  by developing  its   resources, if they had adoptedthe methods  which have brought  the L. & B. C. Gold-  fields to  the  enviable position   of  being  the best thing iu the B. C. market."  NEW   DISCOVERIES   AT  ATLIN.  TROUBLE   OVER   THE   APEX.  Gold Found Upon Two More Creeks About  Twenty Mjles From Atlin.  Two more new creeks have been added  to the gold bearing streams of the Atlin  district, although as yet none can say  how much they will yield to the pun.  The discoverer of these late finds is a  Chilian. Richard Belasco, or as he is more  often called, "Chilian Dick.*' After telling of the linds on Moose and Sheep  creeks, Belasco said that new creeks are  being continually discovered, and that  when spring opens and the milling season  commences it will be a difficult matter to  recognize the country from the present  maps. Moose creek is twenty-five miles  below Atlin and flows into Atlin lake, following a course that for a distance runs  at right angles from Pine creek. Sheep  creek flows into tbe end of Taku arm  about fifteen miles from the [udian village  on Taku arm. It is ' just opposite the  mouth of M.cKee creek across Atlin lake.  Of course McKee creek flows into the  lake, however, and Sheep creek flowing in  the same general direction on the opposite  side of the lake, flows away from the lake  aud empties into Taku arm.  The season was too late for much prospecting, but Belasco says he he panned  out some dirt and is satisfied with the  .showing. Men who saw the samples he  brought out pronounce Sheep anil Moose  cieeks to be apparently as rich iu big nuggets as Wright creek.  Seven interior Indians accompanied  Chilian'!, ick om of the Atlin country and ,  1 hey are interested vviih him in tlie new  finds, having located claims both for them-  -elves and friends. On their arrival at  Log Cabin the .Indians paid the location  fees iu gold which they claimed they had  taken from their claims. Tlaey had with  them nuggets of considerable weight and  value.   Gold Shipments Increase.  The gold shipments  from   Australia foi  t he year 1 SOS have amounted to $00,100,000.  The    shipment     to     Ameiica     increased  SLOOO.UOO.         Iron Mask Goes to a Dollar.  The chief change in the Rossland stock  market 011 Thursday was a strong demand  for Iron Mask shares, and none can be had  for less than $1. a share. A leading broker  said on 'Thursday morning that he did not  1 hiuk there were over 3,000 shares in towu  that could be bought at that figure.  Work to Resume on the Wilcox.  Philip White, the owner of the Wilcox  ���property��� on Wild Horse Creek, about a  mile beyond the Black' Cock, will commence operations at once and expects to  make a shipment to Northport. There  has been about 500 feet of development  done upon the. property, and the lead is  said to be three feet. wide. Average assays  give returns of about $50 to the ton. A  five stamp mill is on the way and is expected to arrive within a month.  Mines Near Erie Commence Shlpplng.  Regtdar shipments have been commenced'from both the Second Belief and the  Arlington oyer the new wagon road lately  constructed from l.rie t hrough lhecotintry  drained-by the North fork of the Salmon  river. Three teams are at work hauling  from the Second Relief, and about five  tons pert flay are being shipped. The  Arlington is out putting two or three tons  per day. The ore is coining merely fi om  t he rock on the dump and from the rock  taken out in development. No stoping is  under way.  The Ohio Develops Well.  IL T. Kirkwood anil Frank Wells, owners  of the Ohio claim, above the Enterprise,  on Ten Mile report t hat tin-Ohio is steadily  improving. The tunnel is in 100 feet, and  fully timbered. The vein is showing more  mineral, but shipping ore has not yet been  struck, though the evidences point to a  chute being approached. There is no  pinching up of the vein, which holds its  own as the biggest pioposiiion on the  creek.  The Idaho Dividends,  (ieorge Hughes announces that the  Idaho mines-have paid another dividend.  this time amounting to $28,000. Three-'  quarters of this amount he cabled to the  Scott i-h Colonial Goldfields. Limited, l.din-  bnigli, Scotland, that company owning  t lt-ii interest in the property, while Mr.  ! fu ir lies (nv 1 is the remaining quarter. The  Idaho mines ha ve paid todale in dividends,  mclu-ive. of ihe present payments the  total ol $202,000. This dividend will give  the Britishers additional interest in the  silver mines of the Slocan.  Full Court Delivers Judgment, in the Iron  Mask-Centre Star Dispute.  The judgment of justice J. take in' the  appeal in the case of the Iron Mask vs.  the Centre Star, with , w hii-h chief just ice  McColl agrees, and to which justice Martin dissents, will have an inteiest for mining men as bearing upon a'dispute which  will be more or less inseparable with mineral claims located under the old law,  which gave claim owners the right to follow the vein beyond their lines. Justice  Drake's judgment is as follows :  "The Centre Star claim that they have  on their land the apex of a vein which  dips towards and under the hind of the  Iron .Mask, and therefore they are entitled  to follow iliis vein down to its termination. The iron Ma.-k deny the existence  of the vein, and say if there is one it'has  been cut olf by a fiat fault and tei initialed. The Centre Star say that'if you  allow us to explore beneath 'and. through  this fault it'will demonstrate that the  vein wehave followed as vve claim exists  on the other side of the fault.' The Centre  Star have been enjoined until the hearing  from continuing the work. They now  seek for an Older to give them leave to explore the land in the iron Mask, so as to  ascertain whether or not there'is any ore  below the fault, for they say 'jf there is  then we are entitled to continue working  it as part of the vein we have folio*., c1.'  The first thing to be decided in ��� be ac- ���  tion of tlie Iron Mask vs. Centre S nr is  whether the Iron Mask can show 1 i, u t he  Centre Star has no apex and no vein. If -  they succeed iu doing this, then the  Centre Star have no use for 1 lie 01 del*  asked for. If they fail, then the que-lion  has to be decided whether this kudu is a  solution of continuity of lhe vein. This  is a question of law and fact; if it is decided against the Centre Slar. ihen. again,  there is no necessity tor lhe order. If it ,  is decided in their favor, then, again,  iheie is no necessity for the older, lor  they have established their Hghi lo continue the work. 1 am not prepared to  deny that the court has pov\ur to grant  the order asked for, but ih.re is no ca--e  u hiel) goes to such an extent billed upon  Rule 514.. Lump vs. Beaumont, 27 Cb.

The defendants seek to establish a theory thai the alleged vein exists  below the fault, not 10 prove any connection between two existing facts. If 1 hey  had actual evidence of a vein both abova  and below a certain spot, and sought, to  explore the intermediate ground 1 hey  would have a stronger case. '1 lie Iron  Mask have rights as well as the Centre  Star. There is 110 doubt that ihe Court  has always exercised the power uf granting inspection ol mines and llu-ir vvoi k ings  but it has not gone to the extent of allowing independent work. If tlie Centre Star  can show a clear title down to the fault,  and satisfy the Court that the fault is not  such an interruption of the vein matter  as to constitute a termination of the vein,  alien they would be entitled without an  order to ptoceed. Iu the meantime every  step . is disputed and every statement  denied I therefore do not consider that  the Centre Star are entitled to the order  asked for. In equity the rule is that  when in conscience the defendant has a  right equal to that claimed by t he plaintiff,  the court will not grant discovery. Reds.  PI. 1M). The parties here have equal  rights, depending, however, on different  titles. The Centre Star have ihe right to  follow a vein into the adjoining claim.  The Iron Mask, until that vein is proved,  have a right to adore within the vertical  lines of their claim. I think it should be  left to the judge at the 1 rial to siiy.w heiher or not actual work should be done for  the purpose of elucidating atiy/particular  point v\ uh regard to the issues raised.  The Chief Justice authorizes me to state  that in his opinion the Centre Slar appeal  ought to dismissed.  Tbe appeal will therefore be dismissed  with costs." ���  The Galena Mines Report.  The report of the directors of the  Galena .lines has been issued, ft is very  disappointing, and there appears to be  nothing in store lor the shareholders. The  directors in their report say : "It seems  to be the general opinion in the district  that a large body of good 01 e exists within the boundaries of the ptoperty : the  claims are strewn in many places wilh  large blocks of galena, a iiil there is a 11 outcrop of galena I'or some distance along ,1 he ,  sin face.

The only restriction imposed on  the g*ove. nor-gencriil, in whom the power  of appointment lies, is that lhe.jticlge.shaH  be a member of the bar of the province.  The constitution of the court rests with  the province, but the appointment of  judges belongs to the Dominion. The  Dominion parliament uloue can interfere  with the powers so vested in the governor-  general. The J3. N". A. Act only require-:  that a judge shall be a member of the bar  of the province. In this connection tlie  minister of justice calls attention to the  ...reams .a nee that justice Gray was only  a member of the bar for a fortnight when  Sir John A, Macdonald made him a judge.  SATURDAY   MORNING ..DECEMBER :il, 1S!'S  ���THJ3RJ3 will be a contest i'or.the ollice of  mayor at the approaching municipal election, H. G. Neelands having declared himself as a candidate in opposition to mayor  Houston.    "George" Neelands, as   he   is  familiarly called by his friends, has been,  a resident of Nelson for several years, and  during this time has made many friends.  He 'first came to Nelson  in  1891, and  for  a few years was engaged in the business1  of   a   landscape   photographer.     In   the  natural order of things he  became interested  in  mining,  and  was  so successful  that he subsequently gave  it his  whole  attention, and   is   credited   with  having  made considerable money out. of his dealing with the Athabasca group. In George  Neelands mayor  Houston  will  probably  find an oppouent that will  make a  good  race, but there can not  be much question  as to the issue.    Aside from  the personal  following,    which    candidate    Neelands'  popularity will give, him, his chief support  will be drawn from men who have opposed  mayor   Houston   at   every   opportunity,  and there is  no  more  reason   to  believe  that they will have any greater success  this year than  they  have  had formerly.  The campaign   will  create an  interest in  municipal   affairs,  and   upon   the   record  made by mayor Houston  and the present  council  during  the  past year, the  issue  will be determined.   The  year has  been  an important one iu the history of Nelson,  and Tin-; Ti.incXK believes that when the  electors appreciate'what; has been accomplished with the'funds at, the disposal.of  ths'council, they will return mayor Houston, and a council which will assist him in  perfecting a preliminary work which will  place Nelson in the  foremost  position  of  the cities of the province as a self sustaining municipality.  Thi. electors of Cowichan on Wednesday  rejected Colin B Sword and returned  Robertson the opposition member who  was forced to resign by reason of the fact  that he had received money from the  province while serving a,s representative  for Cowichan. Sword made a better run  than did Herd in the general elections,  but the opposition candidate retained a  substantial majority. With Cowichan  Hake to hear from Robertson had 1.1  votes and Sword .127. In the general election Herd's total vote was oniy I in.  They have sincelearned thatt here are two  interests which would be affected by tariff'  changes, and have been given every assurance that the American commissioners  will see to it that American interests are  carefully watched while the tariff tinkers  are at work. In short, the feeling throughout the east is that Canada now stands to  win so little by any new commercial  treaty, that it makes very little difference  whether any .such treaty is signed or not.  Tiuc agreement which litis been arrived  at between the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company and ihe Grand Tnink Company  whereby all the western business offering  on the Grand Trunk lines in Ontario is  routed over the Canadian Pacific, may  have considerable effect upon the railway  problem in Boundary Creek. It may result in the withdrawal of the Kettle River  railway promoters from the field, since so  long as the Canadian Pacific and Grand  Trunk agreement remains in force, they  would not he able to handle a, pound  of merchandise from any point in Outario  to Boundary. Auy intimation to this  effect will probably be most unwelcome  to the people of Boundary, but it is a condition which will doubtless present itself  and will emphasize the enormity of the  mistake which the House of Commons  made a year ago when it refused the Cor-  bin application for a charter. ..  ThiCattempt of the Spokane men to dispose of Republic, mining stocks in-Toronto  has not been successful. The easterners  have had more or less success with recent  Rossland ventures, and they regard the  Rossland field as equally inviting as  Republic wilh the additional advantage  that it secures to them assets north of tlie  ���'10tb. parallel.  O.V Thursday next the Semlin administration wil I meet the provincial legislature,  and considerable speculation attaches to  the attitude which will be taken by the  semi-independents who have been returned. It is now looked upon as likely that  the speakership will go to D. W. Higgins.  and a.s there may be one or two seats  vacant when the legislature meets, the  opposition will not have much chance to  give trouble over the speakership.  Moyie City Gets the Siding.  The building of the C. P. R. siding in  Moyie City i'or the accommodation of  the mine owners is now being pushed as  rapidly as circumstances will permit. It  will be a siding, nor a spur as - ii*' [_*.���;/'  supposed, and"will be .00 feet iu length."  The building of the siding assures the  mine owners that they can immediately  commence shipping ore, and they wiil  commence making preparations at once  with that object in view.  BAST   KOOTENAY   NOTES.  E. C. Smith, manager of the Sullivan  group, says that a test pit has been sunk,  150 feet north of the present workings,  showing up a large body of carbouates.
