Masonic Installation and. Banquet,  . The new officers of Nelson Lodge, No.  2%, A. F. Ac A. M., were' installed Mondtiy  evening by V. W. Bro. Dr. "\Y. J. Quinlan,  grand secretary, assisted by W. Bro. G.'  L. Lennox. The officers installed were:  Geo. Johnstone, W. M.: W. A. Jowett,  I.  P. M.; A. E. Hodgins, S..W.: S. P. Shaw,  J. W.; YV. B.: PollatTl, treasurer: G.  L. Lennox, secretary: F..'Irvine, S. D.:  E. A. Crease, J. D.; J. Dover, S. S.; W. B.  Shaw,* J. S.; F.VE. Emerson; I. G.; G. Spencer, tyler. The installation ceremonies  were followed by a banquet tit the Queen's  hotel at 'which W: A. Jowett presided.  Covers were set Jfor about fifty members  of the order and a very enjoyable evening  was spent. Some of the speeches were  very good, Rev. Robert Frew being especially happy in his-^esponse to the toast  visiting brethren. The musical part of  the entertainment was furnished by G.  L. Lennox, R. W. Day and T. G. Proctor;  and several encores testified to the appreciation of the listeners. The toast to the  W. M., the Grand Master and the Grand  Lodge of B. C. was responded to by Dr.  W. J. Quinlan. )i. A. Crease ifesponded  to the toast of Canada, and Messrs. Frew,  Bui'iie, Taylor tind Peters to the toast of  To the Oreat Possibilities of the Trade of Fort  Steele and Other Railway Points.  .J. M. Carroll has put iu  the past  week  iu endeavoring to induce the merchants  of Nelson io take  the necessary steps to  secure the traele of the Fort Steele section.    Carroll has acted as the pioneer io  far, but unless his efforts are seconded by  the merchants of Nelson there  is  every  reason to believe that the trade will  be  diverted to Spokane for one year at least.  Carroll followed up the work upon the  wagon road, and one day after the completion  of   the   road    to   Moyie   he   had  opened a small general store in that city.  He is now in Nelson  for the purpose of  securing a stock of gejods.    The only difficulty which stands iu the way of Nelson's  securing the trade of this section  is the  absence ejf any warehouse tit the steamboat landing on Kootenay lake for the receipt, storage and delivery of gooels.    Lt  is manifestly not to the interest of the  contractor for the Crow's Nest railway to  encourage rival stores for the supplying  of the requirements of  the navvies along  the road, and for this  reason  there is no  facility  whatever offered ' for  the transportation of gooels from the lake lauding  eastward.    The   only   manner   iu   which  goods can be moved at present is to have  some one accompany the goods who can  take  delivery  from   the  steamer  at the  landing, and arrange for their transport  from that point.    The eflect of this has-  been that men about to engage in  business in the new section have placed  their  orders in Spokane and  take delivery of  the goods at Bonner's Ferry, from  which  point they are taken into JJoyie City aud  Fort Steele over  the old sleigh  road.   A  new stage line has been organized to operate    through    Moyie   City   from   Fort  Steele to Kootenay iake, but it is stated  that-no arrangements have been made for  the erection  of   suitable   warehouses at  Kootenay lake.    It will  therefore be the  duty of the merchants of Nelson either to  erect a customs warehouse at Kootenay  lake ov persuade the stage company to do  so.    If this is not done the difficulties attending the shipment oi' goods from  Nel-  stin" wui  nave' tlie effect  ot'tiriving   tiie  trade of the country to  the city of Spokane, and once the trade sets in along  this,.,  channel it  will  be difficult to divei't it  even tifter the railway is completed.  Another matter which the merchants  of Nelson shouhl attend to is the urging  upon the postal department of tlie necessity of establishing a regular mail service*  from Fort Steele and Moyie City to Nelson. This is essential to the merchants of  Nelson if they are to secure this trade,  and the feileral government owes- it to  Canadian merchants that; they are accorded every chance to secure the trade  as against the merchants of Spokane.     ,  THE   "WHITEWATER   MINE   SOLD.  It "Would Materially Aid in  the Development  of a Very Promising Section.  . The owners of claims along Crawford,  Hooker and Canyon Creeks are circulating  a petition, in which J. Fred' Hume i.s re-  q lies ted to induce the government tej make  an appropriation of $10,000 to be expended  on a wagon road from Crawforel Bay to  Canyon Creek, a distance of 12 miles.  Those who profess to know the section  of country to be served  by the proposed  wagon   road   say  that  money expendeel  upon the work will be money well spent.  The   district  is  at   present served   by a  trail and it is claimed that $10,000  would  be sufficient to convert  I-l  miles  of the  trail into a wagon road, and also put the  trails tributary to it in a  passable shape.  At present this trail is the highway into  the   St.  Mary's   district   and    the    vevy  heavy traffic over it, last summer has left  it in  very bad  shape.    Small  appropriations have been made by ihe government  for trail building in this section, bun the  bulk of the work has so far  been done by  private enterprise.   The development of  the mines in the district now warrant the  construction   of a  wagon   road  and  the  work is too great for private enterprise.  Along   Hooker   creek   there are   several  properties in a position  to get out ore  if  there were an outlet.    Among these are  the Republican group.    Over $7000 have  been  spent upon this property, anel   the.  owners have a  large  ledge   from   which  considerable   ore  has   been   taken.     The  Hidden Secret, on  the same creek, is  in  shape to take out ore.    On Canyon creek  there are also some very promising properties, the chief of which is the Humbolt.  Jn  addition   to serving  these  properties  the  roatl,   if constructed, would  .-ervi.  a  large section on this side of the divide.  The petition is being generally signet!  by  the claim owners as well as the merchants  of Nelson, who are very much interested.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  $8,332,476   FOR   THE   YEAR  The Mines of the Slocan  Send  Forward $125,-  000 Worth of Ore For the Week.  . The returns from the port of Nel-on for  the month of December show  that there  was more ore and matte exported from  Southern Kootenay during - the month  just closet.! than during tiny other month  in the history of the district, in till the  mineral exports aggregated $��.'37,001. Of  this amount the golel values were $318,807:  copper, $(53,571: lead, $03,192; silver, $357,-  158: gold bullion, $3,070. The, exports for  the year aggregate $8,332,470.

In fact, the stench from the  burning gasoline has as yet been prohibitive of the use of that motor in delivery  rigs. It lotils the goods. It remains, however, to be seen whether Mr. Duryea can  overcome that difficulty. If he'ean. there  will be some emi/ty stables on (he I'] tton  property. /f   CLAIMS   THE   LE   ROI.

Goldflelds Limited Purchase  It and Adjoining Claims.  *  Negotiations which have been pending-  for some months, between the. owners 6f  the celebrated AVhitewater mine and adjoining claims, for the purchase of, the  same by the Loudon & British Columbia  Goldfields Limited, were brought to a  successful termination this week by J.  Roderick Robertson.  The Whitewater was examined severfil  months ago by S. S. Fowler,..the L. & B.  C. Goldfields engineer, aud about ^three  weeks ago by J. D. Kendall, consulting  engineer for the purchasing- company.  The present deal iucltides four claims all  told, but the particulars of the deal have  not been made public.  Under the Eaton management^ the  Whitewater was a dividend-paying tnine,  and shipments from it have steadily'increased. For some time past the property ,  has been shipping in the neighborhood of  200 tons per week. The pre averages $70  to the ton-.    _j   Two Ways of Looking at It.  There is just something over $500,000  difference in the price which the Canaelian-  Pacific Railway Company is willing to  pay F. Aug. Heinze for his smelter atid  railway, and the price which Heinze is  .holding out for. The Canadian Pacific  company's experts valued the smelter  and rail ways, exclusive of the laud grants,  at $550,000, but offered to pay. $800,000.  Hein/.e wanted $1,350,000.  Fresh Honors For Newspapermen.  Hon. S. II. Blake, the leading speaker of  a deputation from the Prisoner's Aid Association thaj waited on the Ontario government last week, blamed the newspapers for the increase of crime, and said  the editors of newspapers that printed  reports of criminal trials should be  hanged. He urged that si>ch trials take  place hi camera. , ' "  Mayor of Winnipeg. "  Alfred J. Andrews has been elected  mayor of Winnipeg over li: F. Htitellings,  with a majority of .005. The defeated  candidate says that lipw that the people  of Winnipeg haiftePgone back on him that  he will go back 6n them. * He says that he  will withdraw from Winnipeg and build  a town of his own, where he will be ap-  preciateel.  Police mtigistrate McCrae is having  great difficulty in determing whether  Ian Coltart of the Province, is any way  responsible for the alleged libel com-  plaineel of.by Messrs. Turner and Pooley.  Tho preliminary hearing has extended  over several days witnout any decision  being arrived at.  Jack Stewart was fined $2.50 and costs  by magistrate Crease on Wednesday for  an assault upon a Chinaman.  On Wednesday night the members of  the fire department were given a chance  to show what they could do. A call was  given to the corner of .Josephine tind  Baker streets, a distance-ot oyer 300 feet  from the fire hall, and one minute after  the lirst alarm was sounded the- water  was turned on. The pressure on Baker  street is_ now 135 pounds, and, with two  streams'flaying; the water was thrown  horizontally a distance of-175 feet from a  one-inch nozzle, anel a vertical height of  100 feet. With two streams playing the  water was thrown 125 feet aud 70 feet respectively. Nelson has now ample water  for any fire which may threaten the city.  George C. Melntyre will leave ou Monj  day for Aguascalientes, Mexico, where he  will accept a position under'Paul Johnson,  late superintendent of the Hall mines  smelter.        "''���'���-  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  Crow's Nest Navvies Enter Suit.  Ten men residing in Ottawa anel Hull  who were employed as laborers on the  Crow's Nest Pass railway, arrived home  from the west last week. They corroborated the stories of ill-treatment received  from their employers, and after consult-  with their solicitor, P. JI. J_.atchford, determined to start legal proceedings jointly  against the contractors and the Canadiitn  Pacific railway. This will be the first action arisiug out of the trouble, and if tinmen are successful many other suits will  doubtless follow.  Allan's pack train last week commenced  rawhiding a car-load of ore from the Two  Friends.^ This will be the first ore shipped from, the ledge recently struck. The  Two'Friencls was thrown tip by a 'Vau-  couver^ompany recently as being valueless. ,  A car-load of Ore was shipped from the  Republic last week. The ore went to the  Hall Mines smelter and is expected to. average "200 ounces silver. In the west drift,  off the 1.00-foot tunnel'- the owners of the  Republic claim to have IS inches of high-  graete ore.    ...  A strike of a two-foot ledge is reported  jn the Golden Wedge claim. A sample of  the ore from this ledge has been sent to  the Nelson smelter for the purposes of a  .test.    "',.'        j-  .  C. P. R. Traflic Receipts.

Th^,.Miner's Respects to Lemon.  After liu'mbly ��� ��� apologizing to R. E.,  Lemon in'its last issue, the Nelson Miner  this week says? fclmfc there was no occasion  to apologize, tljat all the statements made  oy it are matters of retford. From the  tone of the M.inef''-s tu'ticte, it is evident  that 'the Miner is very 'sorry- that" it  apologized.    _"'   Horseless Carriages For Toronto. ��  The Northey Manufacturing Co., of Toronto, are engaged upon the construction  or^Lhe Ouryea horseless carriage, and the  T. Eaton Co. will give them% trial as delivery, wagons. The experts��have one objection to the gasoline motor.    It  is not  A Mining Company Which Lays Claim no  Everything in Sight.  The prospectus of the JSritish-America  Corporation, Limited, has been issued in  London, and .hits created considerable  "tir. The company i-- being stocked-for  _C1,500,000. There is something very indefinite in the statement of the new company's assets. It consists "'of options,  concessions and properties, briefly describee! in the following schedule:  "The celebrated Le Roi mine and its  equipment, situate at Reel Mountain, anel  reported to be the premier mine of J3ritish  Columbia, anel at present paying, with  limited developments and appliances,  dividends of -1.10,000 per month.  "The following famous gold mines, situate at Reel Mountain, liossland, namely,  the Josie (adjoining the Le Roi). Number  One (adjoining War Eagle), Nickel Plate  and Oreornogo (adjoining Center Star),  Pack Train, Legal Tender, and Derby (im-.-  mediately south of the Center Star and  Le Roi), anel Surprise and Youknow (adjoining Number One). These mines are  believed to be of great value and among  the best in British Columbia. "==:=::"s5;r_.1  "'The Algonquin group of mines, lfiljo?  eluding 18 properties, situate on Castle  Mountain, Christina lake, covering, ap-  proximately,S50 acres of valuable mineral  land, traversed by a system of gold bearing lodes.  "The Nelson-Poorman group of gold  mines, including six properties, situate on  Eagle creek, near the town of Nelson, together with the 10-stamp mill, plant and  equipment thereon.  "The Murphy anrl Kartharelen properties, situate in the district of Nelson, and  comprising 100 acres, more or less."  In addition to1 this list the company  claims a long string of properties and  business interests in the Yukon. Whether  or not. the company has any right to claim,  them remains to be seen. It may be the  same with the Yukon properties as it is  with the Kootenay properties. This list  is headed with the Le Roi. President  Turner, of the Le Roi, says that the British America corporation has no claim  wlfate'ver to the. Le Poi,"that'' any iun.it  who pays the pt'ice demanded can purchase the'* property without considering  the J3ritish 'America corporation whatever. ' It would be interesting if the big  company woulel make separate lists of  what it holds upon the-strength of con-  cps.sions, options, etc. *J  Curious Fines Imposed in Different Places.  Some very extraordinary fines have  from time to time been imposed upon of-  fenelers of all ranks and degrees of offence,  but perliaps the following are the more  conspicuous.\ '���''-'  For- instance, iu Italy, there is a" Jaw,  svhicli ���infiicts.a fine of 4.100 on any circus  proprietor w4iose preformance does not  include every item mentioned on his pro-  gramme, anel it is considered that, tl]e  public is misled by omissions of items announced for- presentation, and that the  penalty is tliei-efore deserved.  In Scotland there are various temperance hotels whea-e any visitor returning  home after midnight is subjected to a fine  of Is, and the same custom exists in'sev-  eral small hqstelries in Wales.       '  In a certain well-known detective  agency iu the west end of London,;*fjtlie  management have 'instituted-, .a very  prkiseworthy.practice of fining any member of. the stall' who indulges in strong  language. For each offence a certain  penalty is imposed, anel at the end of  the year the total amount collected goes  .to a charitable institution.  In Paris tJiere is a club composed almost  exclusively'.of Frenchmen, who possess  ^o great a detestation of ^Germany and  Germans, that any member who ever  makes the slightest reference to anything  Teuton   is liable to a  considerable  nne.

LATEST   NEWS   FROM   DAWSON.  The steamer Tees, whicli arrivetl in  Victoria this week, confirms "the story of  the shortage of provisions at Dawson  City.

Governor Chapleau is busy packing up  preparatory to vacating Spencerwood  and the ollice of lieutenant-governor of  Quebec, lie makes no secret of his approaching departure. That he has placed  his resignation in Laurier's hands is all nonsense. He had nothing to resign, his term  J of office having expired. Laiirier told  him sometime ago he was unable to offer  him an extension of his term. There is  an impression here that the government  is iu a quandry about the appointment of  his successor, it is said Joly ..'will not accept the office. * tf he can be induced to  do so, Chbqnettev will- succeed him. But  it looks as though his refusal :is: already  known, for it is said on 'good-'authority  that the C|itestion, as to whether a retired  judge woulelevr w��.ulel not lose his retiring  allowance by������-accepting another office, is  now before an eminent constitutional  authority. If the pensiou.should be thus  forfeited it is unlikely that any judge  woulel accept the office. If the decision  is the other way, Quebec**may have a  Montreal judge for its lieutenant-governor. ���'"'���'.

Besides the Newell  and Berner Bay mines, the company owns  large interests on the Douglas. Island,  and 100 acres of placer mines'in- the Silver  Bow basin.

'   SATURDAY MORNING ..............JANUARY 1, 18HS  A .meeting ol' the business men of Nelson will he held next Wednesday i'or the  purposed: reorganizing the board of trade.  The growth of the business interests of  Nelson renders this step necessary. Should  the board  be reorganized it might with  advantage take up the question of fire insurance, and see what could be done to  secure some reduction in the heavy rates  at present charged upon lire risks by the  insurance   companies   doing   business in  tjie city.    Nelson  has  now  an   excellent  water supply available for fighting fires,  with sufficient pressure to throw a stream  of water 50 feet over the highest building.  The corporation has also*niade a move iu  the matter of forming a fire 'department,  and is under some expense in maintaining  the same.     The fruits of these expenditures should secure to the property owners of Nelson a considerable reduction in  the rates for fire insurance which obtained  when, the city had practically no water  supply and   nothing  save and-outward  semblance of" a fire department.   There is  no reason -why'the rate for fire insurance  in Nelson should exceed 4 per cent. If the  fire insurance companies doing business  in this city refuse to recognize the .justice  of the eity.s claim f'or-a decrease in  the  ' fire rates there is one screw which the  people of Nelson can apply to bring them  to time.- The city council has power to  impose a tax amounting to $240 annually,  upon   every   iusuranre   company   doing  business in the city.   If the companies refuse to make any reduction jn  the  fire  rates it will be a confession on their part  that improved-facilities  for figliting fire  cut no figure with them. T\he remedy will  theu be to make the fire companies pay  thSir proportion of the cost of fire protection through the* medium of the municipal tax. *   Thr' Grand Forks Miner advances the  masterly argument  that  it  is "nobody's  business" that the government granted a  railway charter for theStickeen river and  Teslin  lake route to a Mr. Begg, who is  now said to be selling the stune for $00,000.  It evidently does not occur to the Miner  that the government should enquire into  an applicant'�� ubiety  to build a railway  before   it   grants   him   a   charter.     The  granting of a railway charter to a man  who was not. above living at the legislative restaurant during  the session, aud  who requested to be allowed  the use of a  committee room for asleepingapartment,  may not appear out of place to the Grand  Forks Miner, but the general public should  be pardoned I'or any inability to see the  thing in the same light{   There is no objection to acts of charity on  the part of  of the government, but the government  might   do better   than  graft its charity  upon its railway policy.      ���'  Tmo Commission appointed to gnc|ttii4  into the charges preferred againfet judge  Spinks has determined one fact, that  there are people wly? will yiake elntrges  against a man and then fail to put in an  appearance \��hen the proper time arrives.  In this list may be classed Jame.s II. Falconer. Before the commission was issued  he sent a letter to sir Oliver Mowat, then  minister of .justice.   The^letter bore the  date of Grand  Forks, June ,1st, 1807, and  ,was as follows:  Sir: I have arrived up here as deputy supreme chief  ranger. I.O. _<*., from Victoria, where, as you know, my  home is. There is a matter that, as a Liberal and a  friend, I deem it my duty to aciiuaint you of, viz: The  conduct of judge Spinks. judge, of Yale district. I am at  a loss to use words to convey my impressions regarding  his unseemly conduct, but it, is simply appalling. If ever  an investigation was necessary to enquire into the eon-  duct of any man. il; is necessary iii this case, for the good  name of your department and theglaringatrocities and  extreme favoritism shown by this ollieial. It is highly  necessary, in.tho interests of good government, to have  a commission appointed to investigate at once. Believe  me, etc. .Iambs II. I<'ai.(.o.\'i_k.  Having interested himself so much in  the welfare of judge Spinks one would  have'thought that the writer would have  been on hand when the commissioner was  ready to receive his complaint, but such  was.not the ease. When the commission  sat at Midway, Alexander Henderson, of  New Westminster, who represented the  minister of justice, informed the commission that he had seen Mr. Falconer in  Kootenay, that he maintained that he  knew nothing about the charges, and that  he was not in a position to justify his  letter.   Thk liossland Miner, the personal organ  of  I<\ Aug.- Heinze, announces  that  the  provincial government has very properly  refused to grant any cash subsidy to the  holders of the V. V. tt E. railway charter  for the  proposed  line" of   railway  from  Penticton to Boundary Creek.  The Miner  then  proceeds to state that the propei  course for the government to adopt is the  giving of the subsidy to the holders of  the C. & W. railway'charter.   Jt would  be much more difficult for the editor of  the'Miner to show why it. is necessary to  subsidize either the holders of: the V. V.  & E. charter or tlieholders of the'C. & W:  charter.   He knows that D. G. Corbin is  willing to give t.he-.Boundary Creek district railway facilities without asking any  assistance   from  the   government whatever.   This-being the case why is it necessary to bonus any set of charter speculators' to the extent of $400,000 tor doing  what a railway man is willing to do without tiny bonus.   Tl\e Miner is advocating  the bonusing of the C. &; W. railway company for tlie purpose of  enabling that  company to make a pt#fit out of the construction of the road r��ither than for the  purpose of securing railway facilities for  Boundary Creek.    If there is no business  ij$r a railway it were better not to build  one.    If there is  business for  a railway  and a bona-fide railway company is willing to build without any aid whatever,  why is it necessary to bonus any charter-  mongers to the extent of $400,000 to compete for the traele?   Surely the members  of  premier Turner's cabinet have sense  enough to see that there is no necessity, to  bonus one man  to the extent of $-100,000  for doing'what another is anxious to do  for nothing. '  J. M. Kkij.H'- held a public meeting in  Revelstoke last week for the  purpose of  ascertaining the views of his constituents  with respect to his future ljne of action.  The electors fft.  IteVelstoke showed  their  good sense by requesting Mr. Kellie to retain his seat in the legislature* , Had they  done otherwise their constituency would  have rejuained unrepresented in the present parlia-hient, as there would  not have  been sufficient time for the holding of a  by-election  prior to the opening tf the  legislature.    Kellieis^peech clearly shows  that th&appointtnentof Siboald furnished  the excuse rather than the**reason for l^s  desertion of the Turner party.    After endeavoring to afford the Turner govern-;  ment support for two ses#on.S�� Kellie now  conies out openly anel says ttjat it" is impossible for him to accord thtigoverument  further sujlport,  because it is  purely a  government  of   favoritism, and  is* eon-  trolled in its actions by the coal barons of  Vancouver island.     It ^s  interesting to  note that Kellie has now cotue to realize  that the tax  imposed* upon, the precious  metal  mines  is a  discriminating ;tax  as  compared with the tax upon  tlie Duns-  ipn'w collieries.    It is interesting also to  note that in this connection Kellie charges  premier Turner with a violation of a  promise to readjust the system of taxation upon the coal lands of Vancouver island. This1 may be taken as confirming in  a-degree the contention of the press of  Kootenay that Turner is premier in name  only, and that the tax evading Dunsmuirs  constitute the power behind the throne.  Among the witnesses tor the prosecution in the libel suit instituted by premier  Turner against Jan Coltart, of the Province, is Clive.Phillips-Wolley,- the government sanitary inspector, in his evidence  Wolley stated that he acted as editor of  the Province for five weeks, and his evidence was adduced for the purpose of  connecting Ian Coltart with the Province. It would be interesting to know  whether during the period in which Wolley acted as editor of the Province, he was  also sanitary inspector. Whether the  duties of sanitary inspector take up all  his time or whether he assumes them  when he has no more pleasant work on  hand.    Thi-. Miner of, Nelson has "crawfished"  on its story of a sensational suit; iu connection with the shareholders of the Sunset Mining Company aud Ft. 13. Lemotyi.  It is presumed that li. E. Lemon hinted  something about a libel suit. In view of  this'the Miner sees the troubles of the  shareholders of the Sunset Mining Company in an altogether different light, tind  it takes back alPit said against Lemon. It  is safe .to say that the-Miner representative who supplied outside papers wit.ii his  sensational story'will not make the same  correction in the outside papers.   -  There have been several rumors of late  to the effectcthat premier Turner contemplates a change in his cabinet, and that a  vacancy vvill be tnade for Hon. T. Mayne  Daly, of Rossland. While it is apparent  to everyone that the-cabinet requires  strengthening it is difficult to believe*that  the ex-Tniniste'r of the interior would consent to be mixed up with such a cabinet  of incapables., Aside from -premier- Turner himself there is not one member of  his'cabinet who has auythiu'g like the  necessary qualifications for his position,  aud in consequence premier Turner's colleagues, instead of being of assistance to  him, hang like a .weight around his neck.  There*is no inducement for a new man of  any ment whatever to take a portfolio in  such a cabinet, and shrewd men' will keep  out until the impending storm breaks.  ' Tin-: Economist, in endeavoring -to account for the apparent lack of opposition  to the candidature of the present members of the city council for re-elewtion, is  not willing to give the people of Nelson  credit for horse-sense. It overlooks the  possibility of the rate-payers knowing a  good tluug"when they have,it...  ^     _______       -  S. II. Bl.Aici-J, the Toronto Ittwyer, has  suggested that ail editors who publish reports of criminal trials should be hanged.  It is even betting in the east that Blake  will not make himself half so popular as  did his prototype Wat Tyler, whtKadvocated a law to hang all lawyers.  True' circymstauce that a Tammany  candidate paid $5000 to the finance committee* of T&nimany hall to secure his  election, is seized up as an -evidence of  political corruption of the worst kind. It  must be confessed that it is a rather bad  showing, but it is not so bad but what  British Columbia can dfscount it. This  Tammany ^ti-lididate was spending his  own money, in British Columbia constituencies are bribed with expenditures *  and promises of expenditures of public  moneys.

HEINZE   AS   KOOTENAY'S   HOPE.
An Editor's View  of the Importance to Kootenay of the Man   who Hires Him.
The ftossland Miner has discovered lh.it
a critical situation  has developed in  the
smelling business of West Kootenay, and
it sounds a warning that unless  P. Aug.
Hein/.e be permitted to save the smelting
and mining industry, by helping himself
to provincial subsidies nnd,fortifying him-
M.lf with tariff advantages, that the business of Kootenay will come to a standstill.
The editor of the Miner is at a loss to
uudei'.Htimd   why   thu  promise   of cheap
coke and fuel upon the completion of the
Crow's nest railway in 1808, has not had
the effect of stimulating the smelting industry   in   1S!)7.    Instead    of   additional
smelters being erected he points out that
the Pilot Bay smelter remains closed, and
it   is   not   improbable   that the  Hein/.e
smelter ai.  Trail   will also  have to shut
down upon the completion of the contract
with, the Le Roi company.    The Le Roi
company has erected a smelter for treating its own ores at  Northport.    It is out
of question to expect the railways to give
a satisfactory rate to Nelson, and therefore the trail smelter will be without ores
to smelt, and the mines of Rossland without a smelter   to   treat  their ores.     All
these- (lilliculties.   however,   will   be  removed if F. Aug. l-Ieinze be permitted to
wax fat upon provincial aud  federal subsidies, to secure a. railway  monopoly in
tlie Bonndry country, and to make more
secure his monopoly upon the smelting of
the Trail Creek ores.
Jf the editor of the Miner were as
familiar with the essentials to successful
rti-tonis smelting as he is with the wants
of 1<\ Aug. Ilein/.e.. he would know that
in order to carry on the business of
customs smelting it is necessary in the
first place to secure a supply of ores. Tf
he were well informed he would know
that local smelters are practically unable
to secure the necessary supply of Slocan
ores for the reason that the Slocan ores
nve in such demand that outside smelters
have contracted for the entire output of
the leading mines for many months
ahead, it may reasonably be assumed
that this condition of affairs accounts for
the delay in the resumption of operations
at the Pilot Bay smelter, and for the recent action of those in charge of the same
in marketing 500 tons of concentrates
which had been accumulated from properties owned by those interested in the
smelter. ,,
With respect to. the erection of the Le
Roi company's smelter at Northport it is
safe to say that the company would not
have gone into the smelter business if
they had not been driven to it by the
charges incidental to having their ores
treated at the Trail smelter. And if the
failure of the Le Roi company to submit
to the rates of the Trail smelter results in
the closing of the concern which was
erected at Trail for the purpose of catching atownsite bonus, it will be so much
the worse for the owners of the Trail
smelter.
The people of Kootenay,have been informed that the War \ing\e, Iron Mask,
Center Star, Monte Cristo, Josie. Cliff,
Jumbo, Iron Colt, Nickle Plate and Sunset No. 2 mines are in a position to ship
steadily at a profit. If the management
of the Trail smelter will give these mines
a fair rate for the treatment of their ores
it may be that when they commence shipping steadily that their ores will go to
the Trail smelter. If not it is quite likely
that smelters run upon better principles
will supplant the one at Trail, or the ore
will be consigned to Nelson and other
points for. treatment. That iliu.li of the
Trail Creek ore has already been treated
at Nelson is rather good evidence that
the N. AcF. S. railway rate is not very excessive. All railway rates in Kootenay
were not fashioned'after those charged
upon the Hein/.e tramway, and consequently people do business over them
even when they are not absolutely
obliged to.
The Miner should get over the nightmare thatits owner is essential to the preservation of the mining and smelting industry of Kootenay. The industry stands
more in need of being saved from F. Aug.
Heinze than from  any other  impending
danger.	
An Unsatisfactory Mill TesL
The result of the clean-up at*, the Golden
Cache mill was announced on Saturday
last, and proves disappointing. The mill
was- run thirty days, and 750 tons of ore
put through. The result was 238 ounces
of gold, valued at $33:35, or $-1.10 per ton.
The Colder/ Cache property was owned
chiefly by Vancouver people, and the unsuccessful test may tend to depreciate the
value of other properties in its neighborhood along the coast mining section.

municipality of the City of Nelson, in tho province of
Hritish Columbia, that I require the presence of the said
