WEST KOOTENAY'S REPRESENTATION.  /_  li:"*��"W  f1'*._}/  W  )%*i  Some Hints   Which  May  Be Useful   to  J. M.  Kellie, M. P. P., This "Winter.  The member Cor the north riding ol'  West Ivootenay district was iir Xelson  this week. ' lie gives his views regarding  revenue and expenditures in a letter in  another column. In conversation he stated  his views regarding other questions, such  as giving Jvootenay additional representation in the legislative assembly, and  additional facilities for the transaction of  public business. He seemed to be of the  same opinion a.s are all the people in  Fastern Canada, that is, that the growth  and business of Jvootenay i.s confined t'b  and centered in Rossland and Trail.  It Mr. Kellie was as well posted on the  growth of West Kootenay as he claims to  be on the amount the district is indebted  to the province, he would know that the  south riding is the. equal of the north  riding in -population and more than its  equal in wealth. Tf this is a statement ot  fact, why should the, increased representation (Mr. Jvellie favors giving West  Ivootenay au additional member) be given  the north riding? J[ealso favors locating  any additional facilities given the district  (such as a land registry office) at some  point in the north riding.  When the .Davie government brought  down the redistribution bill, iu 18!)-l, Tin*;  Ti'iiu"*-*!*: claimed, that as West Ivootenay  was the one district in the province  rapidly increasing in population, that  factor should be considered in apportioning it representation. 'Mr. Kellie thought  otherwise, or why did he vote to give unimportant districts, like Lillooet and  Cariboo,the same membership as the district which he then represented-' In  the election held the same year (IS)I),  West Ivootenay polled twice as many  votes as Lillooet and Cariboo combined;  yet these two districts have four membeis  while West Jvootenay has but two. Mv.  Kellie was then at fault, and he is equally  at fault now in favoring the giving'to the  north riding of another member ns -*��-oll  as all the increased public facilities for  the transaction of business.  The population of the two ridings is  about equal; say S500 each. The voting  strength is in favor of the south riding,  for the reason that the population of  liossland and Trail is largely alien. When  it comes to wealth, the north riding is, as  yet, not in it with the south riding. The  Avealth of Kootenay is made up of the  product of its mines. Jn 180(5 the mines  of the south riding produced two dollars  worth of ore to one produced by the  mines of the north riding. The volume  of general business transacted can be  compared by comparing the number of  business houses in the respective ridings;  and if advertisements in the local press is  any indication, there are two business  houses in the south riding to one in the  north. There are six branches of chartered banks iu the south riding, while the  north riding has but two. The railway  mileage is about tho same in the two  ridings. As for the location of a land  registry office, it should be located at a  point central for the business to be transacted, rather than central for points that  have no business.  The Thi hunk is not in possession of  data on which to base an estimate of the  amount of revenue raised in the two  ridings in 1S00, but it is safe to say that  the amount raised in the south riding is  one-fourth more than that raised in the  north.  West Kootenay is entitled to not one  more member, but to three; and they  should not be elected from any particular  section, but elected   from the district at  large. ; ,.._  Big Price for Coast Property.  The Cold Fields of British Columbia Association, an aggregation of liritish capitalists, have purchased from the Clianne  Mining company several mineral claims  on Phillip Arm, near Vancouver. The  price paid was $IM5,00(). The managing  director of the Cold Fields company is  Grant Covan, a well known English capitalist. The Cold Fields Association will  begin. Captain Linn, a mining engineer,  is now on the way out from Fngland. The  properties are within easy reach of navigable water, so that there will be no difficulty in sending the ore to the smelter.  To "Work Slocan Properties.  The Anierican Boy Mining and Milling  company is the name of a company incorporated last week for the purpose of working the American Boy and J-SIack Hawk,  two well known Slocan properties. The  trustees are .J. (I. McCuigan, Thomas Mc-  Cuigan, II. Callahan, S. Haas and F. Den-  y.el. There is about 1,000 feet of tunnel  and shaft work on the property, from  which considerable shipments were made  last year. Tlie ore runs from 75 to 100  ounces silver and (iO per cent. lead.  Work  will be commenced about the first of  March. The first work will be to drive a  crosscut'tunnel 150 feet below the present-  working.    HAVE   EARNED   BIG   PROFITS.  An English Syndicate  Said  to  Be After Several Slocan Properties.  W. JI. Yawkey and .1. J).   Farrell  have  , purchased the stock held by captain N. D.  Moore in the Sunshine Mining company.  This company has been operating the  Yakima group of claims, the best known  ot which is the Sunshine and Yakima. By  this purchase the entire stock in the Sunshine company is owned by W. C. and  W. JL Yawkey and J. J). Farrell. Jt is  currently reported that a deal is pending  b'y which an'Fuglish syndicate will acquire the holdings of the several associate  companies working in the Twin Lake and  Mowson creek basins in the Slocan. Oapt.  N. D. Moore was the advance agent of  these companies. .He cast his lot in with  the Slocan in February, 1803, and secured  the Alamo group of mines, after which  the Alamo Mining company was organized  to work them. Following this the Cumberland Mining company was organized  to work the Cumberland, and the Sunshine  Mining company to'work tho Yakima  group. The Slocan Milling company was  next organized to concentrate the ores  from the different properties and the Slocan Tramway company to transport  ore from the mines to the mill, and the  shipping ore to the Canadian Pacific for  shipment. The men principally interested in these companies were A. F. J-Ium-  phrcys*. XV. G. Yawkey, W. II. Yawkey,  and (aptain N. D. Moore. They also hold  a controlling interest in the Idaho mine.  Jn every one of these ventures they  have made big money. The Tdaho earned  dividends from the start, and up to date  has paid its owners $120,000, of whicli  Jj��7_,000 were paid during the past four  months. The Alamo during tho first  eighteen months operation, paid back the  purchase price, tho development charges,  and a dividend of $35,000 besides. Its  total   earnings  are   computed  by  those  -who should know as $250,000. The Cumberland was purchased for $25,000. and  like the other properties, has been developed from the proceeds of the ore  taken out.  The Slocan Milling company's concentrator was the first to be erected in the  Slocan. and together with the tramway  connecting it with the mines, has been a  profitable investment from the turn loose.  Ore Nettod Over ��350 Per Ton.  The first check presented at the new  biauch of the Bank of British North America at ivaslo, was for nearly $1-1,000, and  was drawn by the ivootenay Ore company  in favor of the owners of the Goodenough  mine, in payment for about -12 tons of ore  from that well-known properly. Tho ore  had been run through the Kaslo city  sampling works, and assayed 525 ounces  in silver to the ton, and 70 per cent lead.  The return was entirely satisfactory to  the mine owners, and the ore was at once  sold to the ore company. The advantages  of this are apparent. The mine owners  get prompt cash aud an immediate return  of the sacks, besides saving exchauge and  interest, both worthy in this case of consideration.        Values the Payne at $5,000,000.  A. W. McCunc, the owner of a two-  fifths interest in the Payne group, says  that $5,000,000 would not buy the property  now. The Payne has been one of the  heaviest shippers in the Slocan this winter. During the month of December ore  that netted' $100,000 was shipped to the  Pueblo smelters. The vein has been  opened up for a distance of 1.200 feet, the  average width being .1.5 inches. The other  lucky owners in the J'ayne are W. L:  Hodge of Anaconda, who has an equal interest with McClune, and Scott McDonald, who owns one fifth.  Bob Yuill Makes a Transfer.  Robert 'W. Yuill recently bonded the  Jron Mountain mineral claim, situate at  the head of Schroeder creek, for $10,000,  paying $50 in cash, and agreeing to pay  $050 on the 1st of August next, and $,.)000  on the .1st of Kebruary, 1808. He has now  assigned his interest in the bond to J. \i.  Boss of Spokane. The claim is said to  have developed unusually good for the  work already done.  The Reco's Dividend Expected on Tuesday.  .1. M. Harris, of the Reco, says that the  .Reco company will probably declare a  dividend of $100,000 on Tuesday next. If  the dividend is declared on Tuesday it  will come a month sooner than Harris  predicted when the lieco stock was first  offered on the market. The company employs 110 men and pays all miners $3.50  per day.            After South Fork Properties,  Arthur D. .Jones, as Spokane mining  broker, and representing a syndicate of  Washington people, is said to be negotiating for the interests of the Briggs brothers iii fourteen mining claims on the  south fork of Jvaslo creek. Some of these  are said to present some veins of high  grade ore.        To Work the Black Diamond.  T. M. Gibson, of Knslo, went to Ainsworth on Wednesday last to arrange for  (lie immediate beginning of work on the  Black Diamond and Little Donald, in  wliich lie lately transferred a controlling  interest to Fred Steele. Mr. Gibson remains as manager of the properties.  THREE-QUARTERS   OF   A   MILLION.  January's Shipments of Ore and Matte From  Kootenay Exceed This Amount.  The shipments of ore and matte from  the mines and smelters of West Jvootenay  for the montli of January, will in all likelihood, aggregate over $800,000 in value.  Up to this morning, the value of tlie ore  and matte entered at the port of Nelson  for export during the month amounted to  $070,305, and during the first three weeks  of the mouth there were entered at Kevelstoke Slocan ores to the value of $77,255.  This amount added to the customs returns  of the port of Nelson, gives a total of  $7-17,500. A material increase will be made  to this total when the exports entered at  Bevelstoke during the last week in the  month are added. These figures give a  fair idea of the growth'of the mining industry of West Kootenay. The value'of  the exports of ore and matte for the corresponding month of 180(3, was but $M0,-  759, or a little more than one-sixth of the  value of the exports for the month of  January, 1S07.

Now* that the legislative assembly is to  meet, it may not be out ot place to make  an estimate of the population of West  Jvootenay for the guidance of the government, to enable it to arrive at a fair understanding as to the relative importance  of the various sections of the district.

FA S. Murphy, who is already interested  in some valuable Slocan property, has  bonded from Dan McPhail, Phil McDonald, Neil McFadden, and George Williams  several Lardo-Duncan properties consist-  ingof theBannockburn, Evergreen, Fossil,  Silver Bottom, Silver Jieei, Iron Mask,  and Buckeye. The bond is for $50,000, of  wliich a fair percentage is paid down.  The properties are represented as valuable, assay returns of .'3500 ounces in silver  to the ton having been obtained from  them. Mr. Murphy represents a Toronto  syndicate, which will begin development  work as soon as possible in the spring.  Corbin's Surveyors at Work.  The largest surveying party ever sent  out of Rossland, left Wednesday, to commence the survey of the Nelson Ac Fort  Sheppard Railway company's land grant  on the east side of the track, between  "Waneta and Nelson. There were three  parties sent out by U. B. Smith, surveyor  in charge, and they were composed of MO  men. Other smaller parties are being outfitted and will join the first party in a few  days.    The  work must  be completed by  April 1st,   Tryinpr to Make a Deal.  From reliable sources it has been learned that negotiations are being conducted  between the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company and the S. F. Ac S. and X. F. S.  Railway companies with a view to the  acquisition of the latter roads by the  Canadian Pacific. The Canadian company  has not the field to itself however as several of the large American roads are said  to  be  bidding against  it  for the Corbin  roads.  :   Dubois Defeated In Idaho.  J5oi.sk, Idaho, Jan. 2S.--lIenry lleitfcld  is the senator-elect from Idaho. When  the crucial ballot came the Populists rallied and gave their candidatea solid vote,  while 1M of the Democrats and the single  Republican in the legislature joined them.  JJeitfold's vote was MO, while Dubois secured M0. T. F. Nelson had one vote on  the final ballot. There wasa great crowd  in the house when the time for the ballots  arrived.

As  Computed  by  the  Member for the North  Riding of the District.'  Tin*: Tmih'xm has.been requested by  J. M. Jvellie, M. P. P., to publish tlie, following letter. It was written by Mr.  Jvellie for publication in The Miner of  Nelson, to clear up some points in an interview which The Miner representative  had with Mr. Kellie, but the editor of the  Miner refused to publish it. Tin*; Tnnu*xio  does not agree with Mr. Kellie politically,  nor with the subject- matter of his letter,  but it publishes the same in order that  Mr. Jvellie may place his views before the  people.  To run liniroii of Tun Ni-'lko.v Mix hi* :  ���I notice in your columns considerable  adverse criticism of the government's policy in regard to West .Kootenay district.  J would like you to particularize the grievance,' real or imaginary, so that I could be  in a position to work with your representative in securing redress for this so-  called down trodden and neglected portion of: West Ivootenay district. Although  I represent only the north riding at the  present time, still J feel a keen interest in  the south riding, and promise that if you  can give me defiuite data that the south  "riding is taxed to death for the benefit of  ;any other portion of the province J pro'm-  ���ise to do what J can to afford relief. Statistics go to show, however, that thejjoot  is on the other,foot, and that West Kootenay district as a whole does not pay her  way financially. During the four years  ending June M0,1800, the last official statement made by the auditor general, laid  before the legislature last session, gives a  total revenue of $25M,i)57.M8, and the expenditure for and in the district $M2I,70(>.-  50 approximately. This does not include  the district's proportion or share of interest paid upon the provincial debt, which  amounts to approximately $270,000 per  annum. Nor does it include the district's  proportion of provincial administration,  which includes large and heavy items of  expenditure, viz: the land and works department, treasurers' staff, provincial  treasurer's office, educational supervision,  registry offices, goals, asylums, bureau of  mines, aud many other items. The district's proportion under the above mentioned expendil ures would total up to  and above $10,000 per annum, making a  total deficit in four years of over $225,000.  How is it this information is not given by  your paper to the public? Have you not  ������''���cess to the Blue books containing this  infoimation ? Jf you doubt the accuracy  of my statements and want corroboration  of them by personal inspection, if you  write me at Victoria I will see that you  get the documents; and, further, any  other document of public interest you  may require for giving information to the  public. During the time silver depreciated the government guaranteed the  bonds of the Nakusp <fc Slocan Railway  company to insure its construction, and  by the assistance rendered a railway was  built into the Slocan mining camps: and  which, to say the least, gives competition,  and therefore must be advantageous to  tho miner. Outside of public works there  are many large items of expenditure that  have to be provided for. The salaries and  maintenance of government offices and  schools throughout the district is a heavy  charge. Police protection, with its attendant expenses of administration of  justice, cost and keep of prisoners, transport, warrants, jurors, witnesses, coroners' inquests, surveys, traveling expenses of officers on duty, hospitals, charities, government buildings, record ofiices.  etc.: these items total a large amount and  have to be provided for just as much as  expenditure on public works. These details are given for the information of your  readers, which will enable them to get an  idea how the money collected is expended.  If you will kindly provide space in your  columns L will furnish your readers with  a detailed statement of expenditures for  this district for the four years ending  June M0, 1805; also the expenditure in detail for the year ending June MO, INUO. so  soon as I receive the information from  the finance committee. I think it will require considerable effort on your part to  explain how the district of West Kootenay in the face of its enormiAis deficit has  been overtaxed and neglected. I throw  down the gauntlet and challenge you to  refute the statements made above in regard to the district's expenditure and deficit.    Come on, MacDuIT.  (Signed.)   J. M. Kioi.i.ii*:.  ROSSLAND   MINING   NOTES.  The Miner: A strike is reported on the  Iron Hope, whicli is an eastern extension  of the /JIor in the south belt. Two weeks  ago a contract was let for a M0 foot shal't.  A 5-foot pit had already been put in and  tlie work since done gives a total depth  of 25 feet from the surface. There is now  in the bottom from S to 10 inches of ore,  which showed $25.20 in gold, no assay being made for the silver. Almost the entire bottom of the shaft is heavily mineral i/ed.  The Kootenay-Columbia has opened another large body of ore. .Manager King  has had but one assay made, and that  showed $M() in gold. The ore i.s believed  to be of pay quality. It seems to be a  large body, but it lias not yet been completely exposed. The tunnel is now in 100  feet, the last 100 feet being in the Columbia ground.  Much interest is being aroused among  mining men in the camp, by the high assay from tlie Monita shaft. An assay  made by the chemist of the City of Spokane on Monday, showed five and one-half  ounces of gold and 21 ounces of silver, a  total value of $125 per ten. An assay  made Tuesday for John R. Cook, showed  $S5 in gold and silver. Others made previously were $11 aud $1!) in gold.  SHORT   BITS   OP   NEWS   FROM   KASLO.  GOOD   BYE   TO   THE   C.   &   K.  The rotary snow plow of the Ivaslo Ac  Slocan railway, was detained longer at  the Billiard shops near Spokane than was  expected. It was despatched, however,  oji Thursday, and will probably reach  Ivaslo on'Sunday. The company is enlarging its engine house, and has been  putting boxes on several flat cars.  The waterworks system approaches  completion. The wood stave pipe was  finished on Monday last, and looks likean  excellent piece of work. The unfinished  section of distribution pipe on A avenue,  was about completed on Friday evening.  It is expected that all will be in readiness  to turn on the water today, Saturday.  J. M. Jvellie, M. J\ P., was at the Ivaslo  on Tuesday last. .He met several mining  nien, who discussed .with him needed reforms and past mistakes in mining legislation. He was not always complimented  upon his course in the past. He left on  Wednesday morning for Sandon.  Paul Riedel, of the grocery firm of  Riedel Ac Keuster, had his leg broken on  Thursday afternoon by a kick from the  horse he was driving,  The latest enterprise contemplated for  Ivaslo, is a steam laundry to be built by  the Slocan Steam Laundry company. The  machinery has already.been ordered from  the Troy Laundry Manufacturing company, of Chicago, and work on the building will be commenced at once.  Four degrees above zero was the lowest  temperature recorded by the official thermometer during the recent cold snap.  J-lon. Fdgar Dewdney, lieutenant-governor and president of the Dardanelles  Mining company, is expected to be in  Jvaslo this week. Mr. Tretheway, mining  engineer for the company, left on Thursday morning to meet him.  The water was started at the intake of  the water works system.on Friday evening, and ran withoutthcslightest leakage  or impediment to the reservoir, which  was gradually filled. It will be sent  through thedistributingsystem tomorrow  forenoon.  The council met iu secret session last  Saturday evening, but  made  very little  progress in respect of the charges presented by alderman Buchanan against  oneof the city's officials. The alderman  asked.it is said, that the council should  prosecute the official for breach of a city  by-law. The council could hardly see its  way to do this at that time, and the matter was postponed until Tuesday evening  last. Ac the hour named, however, there  was no quorum, aud the matter again  went over. An ample apology is requited  b}'alderman Buchanan.  There was an intciesting service and  concert at the Presbyterian church on  Monday last, in commemoration of the  birthday of Burns. Several Scotch airs  were rendered in a pleasing manner, and  there were speeches by alderman Buchanan, who presided, aud the Rev. Mr.  Narin.  A court of tho Independent Order of  Foresters has been organized in the city  wilh the following list of officers: Duncan, court deputy: I). P. Kane, chief  ranger; O. Strathern, vice-chief ranger;  W. R. Strathern, past chief ranger: S.  Faweett: recording secretary: I). J.  Voting, financial secretary: J. I). Keenan.  treasurer: Pew Jaines Nairn, court chaij-  lain; and Dr. Ilorto, court physician.  There were 21 members at the lirst meeting and-eight others will be admitted at  the next meeting.  Patrick Conway and Frank Henderson,  two scrappers, were fined $5 and $10 respectively in the police court on Monday.  The latter got the heavier dose because he  seemed to be the aggressor in the scrimmage which took place on Front street.  The opening of a branch of the Bank of  British North America here on Monday  last was a surprise to most citizens. II.  O. Marquis of the Sandon branch will  have permanent charge of the new institution, which has already secured some  large accounts. Temporary quarters have  been secured iu Kapp's new building at  the corner of A avenue and Fifth streets.  A hockey club has been organized with  mayor (Ireen as president: Archie Fletcher,  vice-president; and O. Strathern secretary-treasurer. The club has secured the  use of the rink for certain days of the  week and will get down to regular practice, and hopes to arrange matches with  other clubs for the hockey championship  of the district.  The Odd Fellows in the city, of whom  there is a number, intend to organize a  lodge of that society iu this city in the  near future. It is also said that the  Knights of Pythias do not propose to  allow the Kaslo field to lie fallow, but  will establish a branch of their order in  the city.  The steamer International took a number of the members of Kaslo Lodge, A. F.  and A. M. to Nelson last Sunday to attend the funeral of their late brother, G.  II. Rashdall.  The cold snap has made fairly good ice  at the new rink and considerale numbers  are taking advantage of it to indulge in  curling and skating.  The Canadian  Pacilic   Takes Hold of the Pioneer  Company on  Monday.  On Sunday evening next, the Columbia  Ac Jvootenay Steam Navigation company,  a company which has done much to assist  in the development of southern Kootenay,  will be a thing^of the past. As has been  previously reported, tho fleet and business  of the company have been acquired by  the Canadian Pacific Railway company,  and the railway company takes possession  at the end of the present month. ���  No matter what is said for or against  the Columbia Ac Jvootenay Steam Navigation company, it must be admitted tluit  the   men   who   composed  this company  gave southern Ivootenay a transportation  service   which,   for   several    years,   was  ahead of the development of the district,  and  which could not but favorably impress newcomers with its future possibilities.   Those  who come  after, now   that  the future of the district is assured, may  build better boats, may give cheaper fares,  but in doing so they will not be  taking  the chances  which the C. Ac K. company  took,when it entered into the transportation business in West Ivootenay.   There ���  was nothing certain then.   There is every  certainty now.    It speaks well for West  Kootenay that those who composed  this  pioneer company, go out of the business  with a fair return upon the money invested,- despite the circumstance^that they  operated their steamers during good times  and bad times.    From one steamer, built  in 1800, a fleet of seven has grown, including sjome of the finest in the province, and  in return for this plant arid the business  which   their   enterprise   and   pluck   has  created, the membeis of the C. Ac Jv. company have agreed  to accept and divide  among themselves some $200,000.  The first steamer co operate asa general  carrier on the Columbia river was the  Despatch, which was built in 1SS0 by J.  Fred Hume, J3ob Sanderson aud William  Cowan, and in the following year the Columbia Ac Jvootenay Steam Navigation  company was formed by Johu Andrew  Mara, F. S. Barnard and captain John  Irving of .Victoria, who amalgamated with  Hume, Sanderson, and Cowan. The new  company built the steamer Lytton and  purchased the steamer Kootenay; a boat  built in 1SSI or 1SS5 to carry supplies to  the contractors on the C. P. R. construction work Yrc-im points in the United'  States. In JS00 the company laid the keel  of the steamer Nelson, and in the follow-  lowing summer the boat was launched  and operated between Bonner's Ferry and  Nelson. Shortly after this the steamer  Columbia was built at the Dalles and registered as an American bottom, so that the  boat could carry American bonded goods.  This boat was built for the purpose of  making connections with the Spokane  Fulls Ac Northern railway, and was kept  in commission, till the summer of ISOI.  when it was burned. Dining 1S0M the  company purchased the steamer Spokane,  and it was also destroyed by fire a year  later at Kaslo. In IS05 the steamer Nakusp was built to take the place of the  steamer Columbia, and in 1SU0 the steamer  Kokanee was launched for the Nelson and  Jvaslo route. During the past year the  large freight steamer Trail was built for  the Trail Creek business, and the powerful steam tug Columbia for towing barges.  From the period of its inception up till  ISOli. the capacities of the C. ..v. K. company  for handling freight and passenger business were ahead of the development of  the district, and during this latter period  the company built the steamers Kokanee,  Trail, and Columbia, and laid the keel of  the boat to be called the Jvootenay, the  largest of the fleet and of its kind in Canada. This boat was to have been finished  in April, the intention of the company-,  being to give a daily service between  Arrowhead, Robson and Trail. The only  new- stockholders which have beeu taken  into tho company .since its inception are  I). C. Corbin of the Nelson Ac Fort SJiep-  pard railway, and J. O. Graham of Jv'am-  loops, who became interested in the company when the steamer Columbia was  built in 1S0I.  The Columbia tV. Kootenay Steam Navigation company has only one more day to  live as an independent transportation  company. The men who conceived itand  carried it through so many years successfully, did southern Kootenay a service  whicli can scarcely be over estimated. On  Monday they go out of the business with  a reasonable return upon the money invested, and there are none who can begrudge them a cent of it.  What Charcoal Filament Costs.  The most expensive product in the  world, according to the Furopean press.  is the charcoal filament which is employed  for incandescent lamps. It is, for the  most part, .manufactured-in Paris, and  comes from the hands of an artist who  desires his name to remain unknown in  order to better protect the secret of manufacture. It is by the gram (15} grains)  that this product is sold at whole-ale. In  reducing its price to the basis of pounds,  it is easily found that the filaments for  lamps of "20 candles are worth $S,(M. per  pound, and for lamps of M0 caudles they  are worth $12,000 per pound. The former  have a diameter of 2S1001 h of I millimeter  (I millimeter equals .0M0! inch), and the  latter four and oneduilf thousandths of a  millimeter. The filaments for lamps ot  MO candles are so light that it would require nearly 1,500,000 of them to weigh a  pound. As the length of each of them is  10 centimeters (M.0M7 inches), their total  length would be 1S7 miles.  m  (W  r-\'4 v-i ^..'"ffiirfto _ ::; "^t^^V^TT^?:"^^ ���������>,.���*������ v^'',*'T^'^.-^-TT-^-^^  ���rp^^rp^-qr.yf,.'-.-v.-r*7-'.|i ��������� , ���>.,��������'������ T,*.;..-^.-"=*-^ff7"r'r?rj'.'T'-;v-  ',.'������.-��������� |,1vi-r.'3.-7^  !���'  '_j;^Ljl. _ __ _!

Meets  ujourning  Ask Your  Shoe   Dealer  for the  Famous  "���AMBY RUBBER GOODS  unn��  ���uuhe  @ribtxrte��  SATURDAY "MORNING  .JANUARY  ''(J, IS;'-  Fuo.M the manner in which  the jirovin-  cial government has handled the work of  revising  the statutes,  it  is evident thatv  the sole object of the provincial government was to enable chief justice Theodore  Davie to make as much  money out of the  province as possible.    From   first to last  this was the only consideration kept in  sigiit.    One of the lastfcacts of Theodore  Davie's government was  to  vote #25.000  for the work of revising the statutes, at a  time  when Theodore  Davie was pulling  the strings for the office of chief justice.  Jle got this job, and one of the first acts  of  the so-called government  which  succeeded his own., was the isstrinceof a commission to chief justice Davie as sole revising commissioner of the statu tes. It wasone  of the cheekiest things a gov'orumeut over  did.    Jn any other province there, would  have  been   two or  three commissioners,  but the people who are running tl e government  wanted   chief justice Davie  to  make all he could  out of the job, and he  was',giveil  the entire work. -The first installment   of   the    commissioner's    work  came before the legislature last session in  the form of a draft.    This was supposed  to represent 'one-third of the  work, and  for it the com missioner received $7500. At  this session of the legislature there was  ' general complaint against the government;  for  entrusting such  important  work  to  one man, and the government agreed to  enlarge the commission.    This wasa year  ago, but up till the previous week chief  justice .Davie remained the sole commis-  , sioner, ,and proceeded with the  work  of  revision.    What his charges for the balance of the work will be remains to bes^en.  ; Here  comes  the   ridiculous  part   of the  whole business.-   Chief justice Davie has  returned his comtiiissien and  the government has appointed'a  new  commission  composed  of   chief   justice   Davie   and  justices   Walkem   and  Drake,   to  revise  the   revision   prepared   by chief justice  Davie.    This is the government which the  Colonist  and    Vancouver   World   say  is  conducted ou business principles.   'Before  going further Tiik' Tuiul'xk. would  suggest that .the legislature 'appoint a commission to enquire into the sanity of the  members of the cabinet. ���,.,  Duncan MeMoath, assistant postmaster  at Nelson, has made application for the  office of mining recorder, made vacant by  thedeathof G. 11. Kashdall. ."WcBeath is  a man capable of discharging the duties  of the office, and Tut: Tkiuun-13 would  like to see him win the race. Unforiu-  n-itely for McJ3.ea.tli in this matter, he is a  Canadian,. aud 'British. Columbia is the  one province .in the Dominion where Canadians are not considered equally worthy  with Fnglishmen to hold down government jobs.  J.v the interests of the people of Kain-  ioops, it is to be hoped that the provincial  government has given  over its hobby of  making ivamloops the breeding  place i'or  tubercular diseases by the founding of a  consumptive's hospital.  Ina recent issue  of the Medical Age ti ere a| -pears'a n article  advancing the necessity of the  isolation  of   consumptives   and   condemning    the  practice of   medicai   men   recommending  consumptives'to seek some salubrious or  favored location  to  the detriment of the  residents   of   such    places.    The   Medical  Age    says    that    Wiscon-sin, .California.  Sexv Mexico, and  Colorado have already  realized the evil effect upon their own inhabitants owing trj  the continuous presence of consumptives.    With  the experience of these   four slates   before it, it is  difficult to understand  the action of the  provincial   government    in    offering    to  bonus a consumptive's hospital  at .Ivamloops for the in'ipoi tation of consumptives  from eastern Canada.    Do   the  people  of  Jvamioops think more of the few  dollars  these   consumptives   would   spend   than  they  do  of  the  general   health  of  their  city?     Tiie   people  of   ivamloops  should  know   that   consumptives- will   flock   to  |; heir city fast enough.    They should   re-  It may or may 'not' be in the best interests of the province of liritish Columbia  that the Crow's Nest road should be built  by  the ..Canadian   Pacific  Railway company, but it may be accepted  now that  when    the  road  is   built,   the  Canadian  Pacific will   practically do   the building.  This will occur not on account of change  of feeling on the part of the people most  affected, but because it will suit the convenience of senator Cox and Mr. Ja If ray  of the Toronto Globe, and the bosses  of  the  .Liberal' party.    It is an open secret  that the  Canadian  Pacific  company intends making a fight for thegovernment  concessions   which will  go to those who  build the road. Jtis known thatif Messrs.  Cox and JeiTray have not purchased the  charter of the British Columbia Southern  B'ail'.vay company, they have  purchased  assets ol: the company, which amount to  the same  thing.    It is not to be supposed  Lhat Messrs. Cox and .7affray became  interested in British Columbia before making sure of a market for their purchases,  ft is not to be supposed  that such   loyal  (it-its are going to set the Liberal party in  ���iiitagonism to the big railway company.  What i.s more likely  is that they will all  put their heads together and fix things so  that all will get a whack out of the public  chest.    An   independent    company   may  build  the Crow's Nest   Pass   road, but it  will have power to lease or sell  the road  when it is completed, and about this time  the Canadian   Pacific   Hailway  company  will take a hand in the game.  rulay morning a  man   giving  his  Ox F  nam:; as Cunningham, called upon the  government agent in company with two  other men and requested protection, in  the course of a conversation it came out  that the men Cunningham wished to be  piotectetl from were the two men who ac-  nccompanicd him. His story was that he  had taken a petty contract from the Hall  Mines company, and had hired tlie two  men to work for him. Ife said he dvew  the money due upon the contract from  the company, and having squandered it.  was tumble to pay the wages of the men  he had hired. This is a state of things  wliich should not be permitted to exist in  i sent any action on the part ofimy government which sought to make their city  the mecca of disease spreading invalids.  Ox ���Monday the Hank of JJritish. Xorlh  America opened a branch in ivaslo. This,  makes the fourth bank opened in the Slo-  etin section during the pa^t two months.  The chartered banks of Canada are not'  very quick at moving, but when thcyestab-  lish branches in a section it may be taken  to mean that its outlook is very bright. It  is worth remembering that within the  last, few nionths six branch banks have  been established in.southern  Kootenay.  Tin*; Spokane Review does not like the  idea of an export duty being placed upou  Lhe ores of liritish Columbia.    The   idea  of this (ax is repugnant to the Review-" because it is apparent that when such a tax  i.s imposed, it will result in  the building  up of Canadian towns instead of American  towns as at present.    For this reason   the  Review undertakes  to  tell   the people of  British Columbia that an export duty on  ore would not be a good  thing for them.  For  so   pretentious a paper,  is  not  this  logic and statement a little out of joint:  . "'The people of Ivootenayr wan t local smei-  '* tors, have them already.^and  will have  ������' more,   but they have  no  intention  of  i! surrendering their  mining interests  to  ���' the  danger of  a  local   smelting   trust.  -' They want the competition of the Am-  ������ erican smelters.    In the  I'nited States  ���'��� nothing   i.s   ever   heard   about   export  ������ taxes, for  the  simple  reason that  the  ���* framers of the constitution laid a ban  " upon that form of taxation.''    Jt would  be interesting tc=iiavo the Review explain  why those who declare  themselves to  be  protectionists  should   pi sice  a  ban  upon  that form   of taxation  known as export  duties. Jf-it isgood that the manufactures  of all other countries should  be kept out  of the I'nited States by .means of a  protective tariff, there can  be no heresy  in  advocating an export tax upon raw materials, so that these raw  materials may  be worked up in  the  I'nited  States.    Jt  would also be refreshing to have tho  Review explain how the mine owners would  be delivered  over to a smelting trust, if  by  the operation of such a  law, several  smelters   were   added   to   lhp*--e already  competing for the ores of the Slocan and  Trail   Creek.    An export duty on British  Columbia  ores   will   be a   bad   thing  for  Spokane and the towns along the S. F. Ac  S. railway, but  it will be a  good tiling  for    southern     Kootenay     and    J3ritish  Columbia.  any country. If a. company adopts the  policy oi farming out all its work in small  conlrat-ts, there should be some provision  to prevent dishonest contractors from  swindling workmen out of their wages,  The company having the work done  should be made responsible I'or,the wages  due upon the work up to the full price  of tlie contract".  'Tin*; first dividend to be earned by a  mining company operating in the Lake of  the Woods disti ict, was declared in Toronto on January 22nd. There is a grim  humor iu the manner in which the press  report of the affair was put together:  "The Golden Gate Mining company direc-  " tors-met this afternoon and declared a  " dividend of 50 per cent. This is the first  ���'company operating in the Lake of the  ���' Woods to declare a. dividend. The  " money was made, not by working the  " mine, but by a sale to an Knglishmnn  " mimed Laycock."  .1. M. Ivioi.lii:. member for the north  riding of the district, claims that West  Kootenay is indebted to tlie province  something like a quarter of a million dollar's. Mr. Jvellie's estimate may be accurate���as accurate as premier Turner's  famous telegram regarding the tax on  coal, but Tin*; Tuiiu-xk is of the opinion  that West Kootenay does not owe the  province a dollar���either directly or indirectly. Last year the people of Kootenay contributed close on to $200,000 of (he  province's- revenue. Will Air.

The imports for the same period  were $5S,I82,J07. compared with $57,008,02(5  in 1805.

They have exhausted their skill in her behalf, and yet  she has not -poken a word nor evinced  the slightest glimmering of consciousness  during the whole time. It is not a matter  of money, doctor. Name your fee. whatever it may be,and it shall be paid you in  advance, if you will only give her the  benefit of yoiu-;skill and learning."  "It i.s not necesstiry for me to see the  lady, my friend," replied the great man  cheerily, '���and as for the fee, if you happen to have a good cigar about you, I'll  smoke it with pleasure, aud "  * "Jin t". doctor, my wife���  "Oh, do not worry about  her. my dear  sir!   Simply remain out till half-past one  o'clock tonight, and then tip-toe upstairs  -'with all possible caution. Never fear;  she'll wake up."   Then   the  train   pulled  onward.

THE   FREAKISH   RIO   GRANDE.  The Rio Grande is a river 1500 miles  long, measured in its windings. For a  few." miles, at" its mouth, light draught  steamers run up from the Gulf of Mexico-  above that it doesn't float a craft except  at ferries. In the old days, when New  Mexico was a province of Spain, the people along the river didn't'even have ferryboats, and the only way they had of getting across'was by fording. For this  'purpose, a special breed of large horses  were reared to be kept at the fords. When  the river was too high i'or these horses to  wade across, travelers camped on the  bank and waited for the waters to subside. Now there are bridges over the  river at the larger Bio Graude towns, and  in other places rope ferries and row boats  are the means of crossing.  In times of low water, a stranger seeing  its current for the first time, would be  apt to think slightingly of the Rio Bravo  del Norte. Meandering in a small part of  a very wide channel he would see only a  little muddy stream; for, ordinarily, nine-  tenths of the Rio Grande'is underground,  the water soaking through the sand*; beneath its channel. The valley, bounded  everywhere to left anrl to right by mountains or foothills, is sandy; and the water,  percolating the sands down to hard pan,  spreads out on each side so that it may  always be found any where in the valley  by digging down to the level of the  river's surface. For the greater part of  the year the river ti.boveground flows swift  and mudcly, narrowing as it swirls round  a sand bar and widens overshallows. Rut  what strikes the stranger most queerly i.s  its disappearance altogether for reaches,  many miles in length, of its channel,  which, except, it may be, i'or a water hole  here and there, as dry as Sahara. The  river is keeping right along about its business, however, and where a rock reef or  clay bed blocks its subterranean current  it emerges to the surface tind takes a fresh  start above ground, running as a. big  stream which, further down, may lose  itself in the stinds again.

A :  good price was paid for the property but  the figures were not made public. j  The grand carnival to be given in the  At-Ctule skating rink  on Monday evening  promises to be a very successful affair.  The management of the rink has offered  several prizes for ladies' and gentlemen's  costumes, and the probabilities are that  the rink will present a very bright picture  Monday flight. The prizes are to be  awarded at !) o'clock, after which all  .spectators will be allowed on the ice  whether in costume or not. The Nelson  band will be iu attendance.  Development work on .the Lone Star iu i  the Slocan is being pushed ahead steadily j  by   Bob  Shiell  for  the  Mansard Mining  company.     Since   November  the tunnel ���  has been driven  in  287 feet.    Latterly a' j  number   of (ptarlz stringers have come !  into  the  tunnel,  carrying  more   or less  galena.

The deceased had  . been attending the Burns anniversary  Monday evening, and i.s supposed to have  missed his way home and to have been  rendered unconscious by the cold. He  was found at 7 o'clock in i,he morning aud  removed to the hospital, where he died at  3 o'clock in the afternoon.  The friends of lid Cummings of the  Slocan hotel, gave him a hearty welcome  on Saturday evening on the occasion of  his return to Jvaslo with his bride, formerly Miss Elizabeth Collins, of Cleveland, Ohio. Mayor Green and alderman  G. 0. Buchanan were among those who  congratulated the newly made benedict.  Dancing was indulged in till midnight.  An attempt is being made by those interested in mining to organize a mining  association. The principal object of the  association will be the protection of the  mining industry from viscious legislation  on the part of -premier Turner's government. There was a similar association  formed hist year when premier Turner  threatened the district with a two per  cent gross tax upon the output of the  mines, but this first association is not  acceptable to those who are moving in  the matter of the secoud association.  As will be seen iu another column the  Consumers' Water Works Company has  given notice of intention to apply to the  legislature for amendments to its charter  to increase the borrowing powers of the  company, and re-arrange its tariff of  charges. It is the intention of the company to put in an entirely new system iu  Nelson this -spring plans for which will be  prepared as soon as competent engineers  can be secured to do the work. There is  ;i rival company iu the Held to supply the  people of Nelson with water, antl it is to  be hoped that between the two concerns  something will be done to materially improve the present wretched service.  William Marcbant of Victoria has been  officially notified of his appointment to  the office of appraiser for tlie port of Victoria.
