WEST KOOTENAY   FAIRLY  ENTITLED  TO  THREE  MEMBERS.  ���'"  Representation Should be Based on Prospcc-  tive Future Growth and not an Inaccurate  Census Taken Years Ago: Based on Adult  Population, not on Infants in Arms;-Based  on Revenue Returned the Province, not on  Servility- to Mr. Davie's Government.  Tlio basis on   which   the   redistribution  of seals in   the  next  legislature  will be  intide is not known in Kootenay: but it i.s  jnoi-o than  likely tluit it i.s ono tluit  will  give   the   government   the   odd   chance.  Thai i.s politics, however wrong il may be  in principle.    If the agricultural and mining districts are given representation according   to    their   voting   strength   and  amount of  direct revenue   paid   the province, the two Kootenays  are fairly   entitled to the same number of  representatives a.s  Yale or Westminister, and  to a  ���larger   representation   than  Lillooet and  Cariboo.      The   public-   accounts   for  the  year ending June .'50th.   IS!).'!  are  not at  hand;   but   the   public accounts   for   the  year ending .June oOth.   1S02,  are.

As regards voting  strength, East anil West Kootenay have  at least I-100 qualified voters tind a.  population as large a.s Yale district  at least. West Kootenay is the only  inland district iu the province that  htul ti rapid increase of population  during the year ISO.'], yet its mining resources are only iu the first stages of development. Today, one of its mining  divisions alone, although the mine owners  tire hampered with almost prohibitive  freight rates on ore, is outputting every  month ore of greater value than the  yearly output of all the mines in Cariboo  and Lillooet; more wealth every two  months than is produced in Yale in six;  and more every six mouths than is produced in New Westminister district in  twelve.  This statement cannot be disproved.  The mines iu Slocan district, during the  month ending January 2'ird shipped  ore of the value of over $ MO, 000. and fully  as much more was mined and left on the  dumps. New Westminister district, with  till its great resources in timber and fish,  and with cheap transport;!.tion, cannot  produce raw material or manufactured  goods that will sell for half that sum, and  Yale, with its agricultural products and  cattle, one-quarter of that sum.  East and West Kootenay. in justice, are  entitled to the same number of representatives in the next legislature as is given  either Yale district or New Westminister  district.  The government should see lo it that a  court of revision, of wliich due notice is  given, be  held at  Nelson, not later than  April 9th, tit,wliich the voters' list of the  electoral district of West Kootenayshall  receive a careful overhauling. The list  presented to the legislature is simply an  abortion. Jf a court of revision is held  on April 0th most of the names sent in  will appear on the register of voters, a.s  they will have been posted the sixty days  required under the Act.  Since   the  foregoing  was put   in  type,  copies  of the  coast  papers  containing:a  summary of the public, accounts for  the  cyoar ending June '30th. ISO,'}, can e to hand.  From it will be seen that West Kootenay  alone contributed almost as much revenue  as Yale or New Westminster districts, iu  fact,  A Vest  Kootenay  i.s  fourth,    on   lhe  list   as    tt   revenue    producer.     Yet   it  has    but    one    member    in    the    present  assseinbly,  tind   will  have   but  one  under   the   new distribution   bill   if   the  representation is based on the population  as  shown   by   the  census   taken   in   ISOO.  Redistribution   ou any other  basis than  voting strength and  revenue will  be unfair  to   the   people   who are  developing  British Columbia.    Why should   Victoria  and   Vancouver  infants   have   the   same  representation in the legislative assembly  as   die  adult  miners  of   litist tind   West  Kootenay?    Why should Cowichan, a dis-  tict (hat  is  sure  to  return  residents of  Victoria   as   members   tind    which    contributes little revenue, be given twice the  representtttion of more populous Mainland  districts?

Here is a  sample of his inefficiency: The inspector  asked twice I'or bids for carrying the mails  from Waneta to Kobson, Trail to receive  service in that way. Hids were sent two  weeks before the steamer Columbia stopped running, but as yet the bidder litis  received no answer from the inspector.

He receives $7..">()  a (|iittrter. and last quarter's salary has  been held back because he purchased his  supply of stamps tit Nelson instead of tit  Victoria. It costs him $10 a week to get  the mail for Trail through from Waneta,  find ho has now hired an expert accountant to figure up his profits.  Items of Interest Picked up  by a "Wandering  Correspondent.  Saxx' Dknvkr, January 22nd.  After a  two-weeks' jaunt  in  a /.ig/.ag  manner, taking in the mines of the famed  Slocan, i'or the lirst time  in  very  nearly  five  yetirs'  experience in  Kootenay  district I find myself in  the embryo city of  New Denver, on  the eastern shore of the  mountain walled, silver and gold ribbed  Slocan hike.   Ou the journey from Kaslo  not much of interest occurred worth relating until the town of Watson was reached.  Some improvements have been made here  in the  past year,  two  new  hotels have  been  erected  and   tin addition   has been  built to the hotel Watson.    The postoffice  is tin established fact, and rapid communication can be had with-the outside world  through   the  telegraph   office,  when   the  wires are not down.    Boar Lake City has  hnnroved to the extent of tin additional  hotel tind Lane Cilliams  raw-hide camp.  Around "Watson anil Bear Lake quite ti  number of dvy ore discoveries have been  made, anil in a measure opened up during  the past two seasons, which add materially  to the mineral wealth of the Slocan district.  At the present Three Forks i.s the liveliest place iu the entire district. Fvery  branch of business i.s well represented and  each individual' appears to be doing his  share of trade. The Lemon combination  appear to be scooping in money by the  hatfull, the local representatives being  "Jack'' W. Lowes, manager: "Jap" King,  chemist; and ".Bert" Crane, treasurer. A  number of fine singers and a few musicians  have congregated at The Forks, consequently free concerts of an interesting  nature are of nightly occurrence.  From Three Forks, the same as from  Watson, I branched out on the several  trails leading to thodiffercnt mines whicli  are being worked during the winter, of  which a description will appear in Thi-:  Triiscni-: later on.  Quite an amount of work is being done  on the heavy cuts of the Nakusp Ac Slocan  railway between Three Forks and New  Denver. At one place the stage road for  a fourth of a mile became quite dangerous  on account of rocks rolling down, and the  enterprising citi/.ens of New Denver  turned out anil constructed a new road  around tho obstruction tind builttwo new-  bridges across Carpenter creek. Like  many others, no doubt. I wtis struck with  the beautiful situation of and the handsome buildings iu Sexv Denver. The large  three-story, finely furnished frame buildings to be seen ou every side would be tin  ornament to much older and more pretentious towns. The neat twin-screw steamer  "W. linn tor" is making regular trips from  this point down toSilverton tttthe mouth  of Four-mile creek, thence back and to the  head of the lake, and -appears to be doing  a good business. Thus far' I have only,  made the trip to Silverton and back oil  the steamer.  One of the principal topics of conversation which T have heard on the'"trip i.s the  selection of a proper candidate for member of the next provincial parliament.  The favorite and choice of the majority  of voters whom I have heard discuss this  important question was a surprise to me,  a.s I am well satisfied tlie man mentioned,  a well-known resident,of Kaslo, has no  political ambitions, but now lam aware  of tiie fact that should he decide to stand  as a candidate for member he would have  quite a following in the Slocan district.  Several married ladies have lately departed from New Denver to spend the remainder'of I he  winter on the outside. In -consequence several new  bachelor clubs have been organized.  At  least   2n() animals   are engaged   in  hauling und rawbiding ore in the Slocan district.  The boys at the Washington -mine have  <iuile a library and reading-room, all  the leading newspapers being kept on tile.  ���). II. .Moi-iiii expects to'put a force of  men on the Queen Moss mine, in Ihe Idaho basin, soon.  This property is owned by a Seattle syndicate.  The boys employed at the Dardanelles  inine while away the weary winter evening hours playing poker for plugs of tobacco. Some of them have llie  weed by Ihe gunnysackfull while others have none. Tlie  less skillful players tind tluit lheir tobacco bill makes  Uiiile ii hole In lheir wages at flic end of the month.      R. II. ICK.MP.  They Labor Under a Delusion.  The legislative assembly should pass a  bill giving justices of the peace co-equal  jurisdiction with associate justices of the  supreme court or pass one clearly defining  the powers of justices of the peace. Some  of the .J. I'.'s in Kootenay labor in the belief that they can try and sentence persons charged with penitentiary offences.  A justice- of the peace tit Nakusp recently  tried a man for; stabbing another and sentenced him tosix months hard labor in the  county jail.   Who is to Blame?  The complaint that the Nelson A- Fort  Sheppard mil way litis not enough cars to  handle its business is unfounded. The  railroad company claims that it has always had "empties" in the Nelson yard,  and now litis fourteen empty cars at Nelson and Five-mile point. I'robably the  steamboat company is lo blame for the  delays that arise in handling inward and  outward bound freight from Kaslo.  A Gold Discovery Made in Ainswortli District.  A recent discovery on Woodbcrry  creek, near Ainsworth. astonishes the  boys iu that camp, who weve always certain that their district had rich silver ore  but never claimed I'or it anything in the  way of gold ore. Tht; ore discovered ou  Wooi I berry ereek goes $120 in gold and  $10 in silver.  SLOCAN   DISTRICT.  Important  News   Forwarded,   by   a   Regular  Correspondent.  Nkw Dk.vvkr. January llth.  A big slide came down two days ago on  the wagon road between New Denver and  Three   Forks about   a  mile   from Three  .Forks.    The slide came down on the top  of the fourth   bridge from New Denver.  Snow was piled up to a height of between  30 and  -10 feet on  the  road.    Carpenter  creek was darned up *n��d in some  places  the water was two feet dec]) on what had  been the wagon road.   The New Denver  pick and shovel brigade were out in full  force on Saturday and Sunday, the stage  taking them out on Saturday and bringing them back in the evening.  On Sunday  morning  they  cut a  track  through   the j  slide so that the stage could get through  and the brigade walked home.  The snow i.s almost gone from the fhit  tit New Denver. Ltirge bare patches of  ground tire visible all over theMcCillivray  addition. If-the mild weather continues  ti fexv days longer it will all be gone.  The storm broke down the telegraph  wires in eighteen places between the head  of Slocan lake and Now Denver.  A ton of mail matter I'or New Denver  tind Nakusp i.s lying about somewhere on  Arrow hike. It is expected in this week.  An occasional stray letter or paper comes  in by way of Ktislo. The ways of the  postoffice tire like the peace of Cod; they  are past all understanding.  Latest reports give no room for doubt  that the sale of the Craily mines will go  through. JMr. Smith's work on the mine  proved little or nothing, and when he left  doubts were espressed tis to the success of  the deal. When N. F. jMcNaught came iu  ho set a few men to work on a tunnel on  the ore. A slight amount of work done  has shown up a magnificent ore body. At  times the whole face, sides, floor, and roof  have been solid ore. Sometimes a little  gangue puts in an appearance. Mr. JMil-  likeu paid the property a flying visit on  Friday. He was not tempted to stay  long as the workings tire situated ou a  good live snowslide. A smtill slide has  already taken place there anil work has  been temporarily stopped on account of  the snow.  ���J. A. Finch has stopped operations on  the JMammoth till spring. The tunnel is  s.tj.ll 25 or.-SO feet from where it is expected the Mountain Chief vein wiil be  struck. JM. C. Monaghan, his representative, looks forward to spending the balance of the winter in New Denver. He  expects to see things rushing on Four  Mile creek when spring opens.  The dramatic talent of New Denver i.s  rehearsing another show with which they  will astonish the public on Thursday next.  No one knows what the play is. a.s outsiders are not encouraged tit rehearsals.  If anyone wants to know tiny more about  this he can ask ."Curly'' Hobinson.  N K xv D kn v i-:k, .Iiiuna ry 28i-d.  The  New Denver   Dramatic Company'  gave its lirst entertainment on Thursday.  The performance fully justified all the expectations formed on it.    it was followed  by ti most successful dance.  The Alpha mine has now about 'JOO tons  of ore on the dump. Preparations are  being made to haul this ore to a point at  the foot of the hill from which a -wagon  road will be built to the lake in spring.  A fine body of ore has been struck in the  middle tunnel of the Idaho.  Contractor MeGillivmy tind chief engineer Osier paid a flying visit to the  Three Forks end of the Nakusp Ac Slocan  railroad last week. They are reported to  have paid ti visit to the mouth of Sandon  creek.  The survey .of tin; Wilson ereek town-  site will be completed within a. day or two  tind the surveyors will move on to lay out  Three Forks. Two hotels and ti store are  to be built at Wilson creek in March to be  ready for the reopening of navigation.  The steamer W. Hunter is to he laid off  I'or the winter in a day or two. Communication north and south of Nakusp  appears to lie closed up.  The night of the 22nd was the coldest  yet experienced this winter in New Denver. The temperature must have fallen a  fexv degrees below zero.  The Colonist's correspondent tit Kaslo  reports tluit on the-lth of .lanuary it-was  7 below zero at New Denver. 2 below tit  Three Forks, zero tit Bear Lake, and 10  above at Kaslo. This is valuable information in New Denver where there is no  thermometer.  r.te!r,ii,,&"r.!RJS*iS'*.tfittr IT IS  SHIPMENTS   THAT  TALK.  have taken a recent look at the Bonanza  King,  the  claim  ou  which most of the  work lias been done.   The lower or No. 3  tunnel   is  iu   200 feet,  and  an  uprise   is  being  made to connect it with the middle  or No. 2 tunnel, which is already connected  with the old   workings or  No.   I   tunnel.  When   the lower  tunnel  is in so as to blunder the old workings, the vein will be-  opened   to a depth  of at least 750 feet.  The lower tunnel is in a fine body of ore,  and   if  railway transportation  could   be  had, the mine, even now, would ship fifty  tons a  day of good-grade ore.    A shipment of carbonate aud galemi  ores was  forwarded this  week to Omaha, a better  freight-aud-treatment rate   having been  obtained from the Omaha-Grant works at  that place than was offered by any other  smelting conip.iny having representatives  in this section.    Twenty-two men arc employed at the mine.  THE  MINES  OF  WEST  KOOTENAY   NEED  ' NO   LONGER   BE  ADVERTISED."    .

The Nelson I lydrtudic M ining Company,  whose ground is on Forty-nine creek,  about eight miles southwest of Nelson,  means business.

Frw of the claims Ioca(ed in Slocan district remain in the hands of thi; original  owners. Of the few, t he Noble Five group  is the best known.

Tluit   they   have  American  Knocks   Out   the   Englishman  in Three Rounds.  The much-talked of fight for the championship   of   the   world    between  ".Jim"  Corbett tind "Charlie" Mitchell came off  as advertised at Jacksonville, Florida, on  Thursday, and was a quick affair, Mitchell  either not being in it or allowing himself  to appear not in it in order to get a share  of the purse.    Mitchell fought a draw with  Sullivan in France, the fight lasting over  three hours, but on Thursday he allowed  Corbett to make ti show of him in nine  minutes.    On the other hand, Corbett began fighting at the turn loose, tind even  abandoned nearly every defense, his only  aim, apparently, being to finish .Mitchell  quickly.    Corbett left the ring without a  mark, while Mitchell was carried out, his  face covered with blood. The rounds  were:  First.���Corbett led for Mitchell's chin  but missed; tin exchange of body blows  was followed by a clinch. On breaking  away, Corbett landed henvilyon Mitchell's  left eye. Mitchell clinched tifter getting  iu on Corbett's ribs. Mitchell next landed  on Corbett's neck, but Corbett got in both  his right and left on Mitchell's face just  tis time was called.  Second.���A wild exchange was followed  by a clinch. Corbett uppercut Mitchell  a.s they separated. Mitchell "landed hard  on ribs, but as he came in Corbett caught  him on the head and staggered him. Corbett uppercut Mitchell the second time,  and landed his right on his ribs. Mitchell  reached Corbett's chin, and a sharp rally  followed, Corbett having the best of it.  Mitchell hit Corbett twice on the neck  and Corbett knocked Mitchell down twice  in return. Jle then knocked him clean off  his pins, aud on his attempting to rise  knocked him down again.  ���Third.���Mitchell came up rather groggy.  Corbett rushed and hit him in the neck  with both left and right. Mitchell  knocked down. He took the full time allowed to get up anil then rushed at Corbett. They clinched, but Corbett threw  him ofl'and floored him with ablow in the  face. Again Mitchell took all the time  allowed to rise, .and when he advanced  Corbett swung his right catching him on  the face, Mitchell falling to the floor helpless. The referee counted Mitchell tis  knocked out, and declared Corbett the  winner of the match and champion of the  world.  After the fight both Corbett and Mitchell were arrested and placed under  bonds of $ 1 o(J0. It i.s thought, however,  that the arrest was only a matter of form,  and tluit neither will have trouble. .Mitchell took hack till the hard words he  had ever uttered against Corbett. and  pronounced the hitter iu every way entitled to the world's championship.  Trail Creek  District.  The returns from the Trail Crock ores  xveve satisfactory; that from the Le Hoi  running Sill, the .Josie $12, and the Nickle  Plate$7S in gold. Anothershipinent from  the Josie now lies on the wharf and will  betaken down on the .ISth by the Trail  Transportation Company's ( Unlimited)  boat, the Katie J. The Le Koi company  have their pump aud hoisting works in  active operation and are running day tind  night on the east drift. They tire working on the hanging wall and are taking  out a breast seven feet wide of the richest  ore ever found in the mine, and have no  knowledge of the vein's width. Twelve  tons of this ore is being delivered daily at  the Trail wharf, and when the sidetrack  at Waneta is completed will furnish the  Trail Transportation Company with  steady work.  J. L. Warren of Seattle has made arrangements to ship the O K dump, and  proposes to commence hauling it to Trail  on the 22nd of this month.  The Lilly May has been worked till  winter by a force of two men. though the  vein litis not enlarged much the ore has  doubled in value, there now being eighteen inches of galena that assays 2<)0  ounces of silver tind $20 iu gold to tlie ton.  John IL Cook and Moss Thompson are  busily engaged in putting up a hotel  building on their preemption near the Le  Hoi.  The signs point to an early, open spring,  and t he present out look indicates that our  ramp will start with it on the royal road  to prosperity.  Another Shipment of Ore from tho Mile Point.  <J. H. Wright made a carload shipment  of ore this week from the Mile Point mini.1  at Ainsworth. The on; went to theSelby  works at San Francisco.  "Jim" Wardner, who is rustling for a  stake in the gold mines of South Africa,  did more than any other.man to attract"  the attention  of  mining  men  to  Slocan  district, although he did'not profit by it.  ITe took hold of an inaccessible, undeveloped claim, and within ninety days was  shipping ore; and from that day to this -  ore shipments have been made continuously  from mines in  Slocan district, although the cost of "'packing--"-the ore to.;  the steamboat landings on the Columbia  river and Kootenay lake was enormous���*'  for a while as high tis $50 a ton.    The ore  wtis rich enough to stand it, and the mine  owners had a smtill   profit after all  ex-   '  ]>enses were paid.  Up to  this week the shipments of ore  from   the mines  iu  Southern   Kootenay  have all  been   made   to  smelters  in  the  United States.    This week a OO-ton ship---  ment or Silver   King  ore   was   made  to  Swansea, Wtiles, anel another (iO-ton shipment will follow in a   few days���as soon  tis the ore can  be double sacked.    Once  this ore is lauded at Swa'nsea its stile will"-.,  be published  in   the  mining journals  ofr "  London and reported in the circulars'sent '  out monthly by such well-known ore and  metal  buyers as James Lewis <fe Sons of  Liverpool, and   foreign -mining men   will  then   have  the  only  evidence  to   which  they pay any attention: the evidence that  the mines  in British   Columbia,.are.actually marketing^ their output.  The Silver King ore is high grade, the  shipment above referred to sampling KiO  ounces silver and 14 per cent copper. The  value of the ore is therefore Sj>lo*0.I2 ti Ion,  reckoning silver at^2d. an ounce and copper atSs. 3d.a unit���the Liverpool price cm  January 2nd.  Another event happened this week  which shows that the smelters are becoming interested, a first shipment being  made to the Omaha-Grant works at  Omaha. Heretofore most of the ore-has  been going to Great Falls, Montana, and  to San Francisco. But the Omaha people  are in the field, and in the field to stay.-  The rate given by the Omaha smelter was  less by $1.50 a ton than the rates heretofore given any mine owner in West Kootenay. The shipment wtis from the Noble  Five mines in Slocan district, was seventy-  five tons, and wtis made up of about  eqiml quantities .of carbonate ore lmd  galena ore. The rate given was $20.50 a  ton.  It is rumored that next spring, on completion of the Nakusp'. & '.Slocan railway  to Three Forks, there will be some lively  bidding for Slocan.' ores, ���'and- that the  Omaha-Grant works will have "the. pull"  with the Canadian Pacific, as that road  will get the long haul on all ore shipped'  to Omaha. The Canadian Pacific practically has its own line to Minneapolis,  which is only 'J27 miles' from Omaha. The  freight rate from Three Forks will probably be based on the value of the ore, and  will run from $15 to $.19 a ton. The saving to the mine owners on completion of  railways into Sloean district will not be  less than $15 a ton. and if the Wilson bi I  goes through congress, another $10 a ton-  will be saved on duty. This saving of $25  ti ton i.s a pretty good profit iu itself.  There i.s already considerable competition between smelters for the ores of our  mines, tis during the month of January  shipments xveve made to the I'nited  Smelting ��S: Hefining Company, Gretit  Falls. Montana; to the Selby Smelling &  Lead Company. San Francisco: to the  Tacoina Smelting tx Kefining Company,  Tacoina. Washington: to the Pttget  Sound Smelting Ac Hefining Company.  Kveretl. Washington: to the Globe Smelting Ac Hefining Company. Denver. Colorado: to the Omaha-Grant Smelting Ac  Hefining Company, Omaha, Nebraska ;  and to the smelting works at Swansea,  Wales.

The objections  raised against the proposed convention  in West Jvootenay tire  amusing, and the more especially so when  the motives of the objectors are known.  One man who is tt candidate objects  to  the convention   i'or   the   reason   that  he  fears it  will be controlled  in the interest  of a candidate stronger than himself: yet  thtit same man  was willing to abide by  the decision of half a dozen self-appointed  delegates from the main towns in sou! hern  Kootenay, who were to meet and select a  candidate.'- He  was  willing   to abide by  the decision of half a dozen self-appointed  leaders, butts unwilling to take chances in  a convention made up of. .delegates from  every settlement aiicl town in the district.  Other would-be candidates object to the  convention  for the reason that the outlying settlements tind small towns have  representation: yet on election day these  candidates will  not object to having the  votes east for them at these outlying settlements and   towns counted.    The  poor  devils  in  the   outlying  settlements and  small towns are good enough to vote, but  not good enough  to  have any  voice  in  selecting candidates  before the election.  Voters of Trail, Waneta, Toad .Mountain,  Watson,   Three   Porks,   Silverton.  Ains-  -worth. Nakusp, Robson. Fire Valley, Lar-  deau City, Trout Lake City. Hall's'Landing, Big Bend, Illecillewaet, Glacier House,  and Rykert's. you do not count as against,  the   voters   in the   populous   towns iike  Kaslo   and Sew Denver and  Revelstoke  and Nelson.    Y'ou are to vote a.s the big  guns   at   Ktislo   tind   Xew   Denver   and  .Kevelstoke and   Xelson   tell   you.    These  big    giins    would     hold     a    convention  made up entirely of delegates from  Ktislo  and   .Xew   Denver   tind   Kevelstoke  and  Nelson.  Tiiio Tifini'Nio favors holding the convention if every settlement, hamlet, mining camp, town, and city in the district is  given representation: no town or cily to  have so large a delegation that its vote or  iiillucncc will be all-powerful. That is  wherein Tllio Ti-IMUNIO titul the big gnus  differ. Tin-: Tkiuuxio will support the  nominee of a convention made up of delegates from all portions of the district,  whether the convention declares itself opposed to or in favor of the Davie government, or whether the candidate nominated  resides at Nelson or Nakusp, ab Kaslo or  Illecillewaet. Tin-; Trimu.vio believes that  the wishes of the people of the district,  should be carried out. not the wishes of u  few candidates who have au overweening  ambition to hold office.  THE   MINERS   HARDIHOOD.  The Miner is the only newspaper in  West Kootenay that has a legislative candidate of its own. the other newspapers  not having the hardihood lo espousv ti  candidate. The Miner's candidale i.s  Frank Fletcher of Nelson. .Mr. Fletcher,  although an employee of tho Canadian Pacific railway, i.s closely identified with the  district; in fact, till, or nearly .'ill. his interests are in West Kootenay. lie is a  man of good business ability, of good  habits, tind   is an  all-round good   fellow.  Canadian Pacific has brought b.ii'n in close  contact with officeholders, and his success  iu getting what his company Avants is the  best proof that he is able to hold his own  with the best of them. Whether he could  do as much I'or the people tis he'does for  Lhe railroad company is the question. If  .Mr. Fletcher is actually a candidate he  will probably, in due course of time, make  the announcement through some other  newspaper than The .Miner, which has  of late degenerated to boa mere organ of  non-resident corporations.  HAS   NO    MONOPOLY.  The statement made by The .Miner that  Nelson is saddled with a monopoly in the  -shape- of the Consumers' Waterworks  Company is simply made for political  effect, tind its falsity will readily be seen  by reading llie company's charier. The  Consumers' Waterworks Company litis no  exclusive rights, other than to .take the  water needed for the purposes of the company from Ward Creek find the Illtist Fork  of Cottonwood .Smith creek. The company litis no right to take water from Cottonwood Smith creek. lu the event of  Nelson being incorporated, the city can  put in its own waterworks, and need not-  pay the Consumers' Waterworks Company one dolhir. for the good reason that  there are creeks other than Ward and the  Fast Fork from which an ample supply of  water can be obtained--- Anderson creek,  I'oi- instance. The hist section of the Act  'chartering the company sttites very  plainly that the powers and privileges  conferred on the company tire subject to  any future legislation which the legislative assembly may see lit to adopt. In  other words, if tho town of Nelson is incorporated and the Consumers' Waterworks Company neglects or refuses to put  in tin efficient system of waterworks, the  corporation of Nelson needs only bring  the question before the legislative assembly, and if ti case is proven, legislation can  be procured that will either compel the  water company to put in efficient works  or wipe, the company out of existence  altogether.   Tiik Vancouver "World, a paper that  litis the ear of premier Davie, says the  government litis not .yet decided whether  to make the next legislature one elected  from ridings, or from districts a.s tit  present, liy till means, make it by ridings, liy ridings, the curse of local  jealousy of towns will at least be reduced to a minimum, and the legislature  will be made up, on the whole, of a better  class of members.  tlie tension will be restored, but again  there will be collapse. The repetition of  the process must n.ake his brain reel, and  rack his aching head. When tit hist he is  called to speak, his performance will lose  half the verve it would have had tit first.  To crown all, there is something of the  ridiculous in the whole affair, so the sufferer will never confess his sufferings.  THE   VOTERS-   LIST.

Sir diehard Temple, in his book "Life in  Parliament." gives ti   pathetic, account of  the trouble of a   liritish   member   who i.s  unfortunate   in   his  efforts   to  catch   the  speaker's   eye.      lie*   says    it   sometimes  happens that a  member   may   rise   time  after   time,   night    tifter   night,   till    his  heart grows sick, und yet  i.s  not called,  lie sees man after num.  with   less claims  thau  himself, c.-iiled   before   liiin.   and he  naturally wonders.    On  the olher hand,  the position of the speaker must,   be difficult, inasmuch a.s he has to balance many  considerations unknown to the members  generally,    lie is probably the only man  who knows every member   of  the   house,  tind he must always  have some reason in  his own mind.    The bouse,  though never  seeking to enter into the reasons, accepts  his conclusions.    He is the speaker for all  l he members    not I'or the best man only,  but for the whole body.    It does   not  follow that I he ablest man or  the  most experienced   are called   first   by  him.    The  house   contains    members   juvenile    nnd  aged, famous and unknown,  able tind insignificant, potent and feeble    he must be  speaker for I hem alike   and  for voting in  the division lobby,   there i.s  equality between t hem all.

Somehow the Geroniino campaign always reminded me of a fox-chase;''the  Indian scouts keeping their noses close to  the scout like dogs loo slow to force the  bush into the open, while lho various  troops, like hunters in different wind,  held and lost the place whicli promised  lirst at the finish. If you know Arizona  tit ail. you will recall how sharpand.rocky  are the crests of the divides: being-lines  of most resistance iu this land of deep  erosion,, they retain tlie sharp, jagged  profile often seen iu the snow-ice of mountain drifts as it disappears in early summer. -Below those.scoops lie a colony of  rounded foot-hills, receding and growing  less -until they end iu broken-bowlder  mesa, 'wliich, ���'"with' numerous arroyos.  lades into the soft, level adobe plain, tind  blends, as unsuspected as the canvas walls  of ti cycloranin join the rocks and logs in  the pit below you.  The Indians preferred these sharp  crests, which xveve for them both watch  towers and impregnable bastions. Occti-  sionally they would strike across the valley, kill a rancher, aud steal fresh ponies,  tiiid some troop would cut in and crowd  them in the open till they took the next  divide a:.d met some barrier that balked  the pursuers and forced on them ti detour.,  wliile some other troop, through accident  of locality, would tack.and lake the chosen  place on the trail, giving for a lew days its  deserter. We were near the border of  Mexico where one must not cross, but  where smuggling is permitted and vice  possible.  The men were getting irritable���I knew  the signs, this tension was reaching snapping point. I htul been thinking of it till  day. That evening John Leighton tind I  were working under the orderly fly at the  ���"records"-were posting Vaugn and .Murray's 'Tnials*' in the clothing and descriptive books. Vaugn was a corporal and  Murray our blacksmith, who had been  killed the week before on tlie day we  pushed the Apaches oil' the divide. We  were crowding them too closely in the  lower pass, when a few bucks slipped off  info the canyon and nipped our pack-train  iu rear. We had to epiit pressing in front  festive our train. It was ti clever bit of  work, and live; bucks did it, killing two  men for us, losing us our game just as we  were.bagging it.  Ijoighton wtis company clerk, a talented,  handsome fellow; had served out in India,  iiehacl'ti cheering freshness and facility  of expression, tind spoke with the quick-  falling iniieolion and directness of fhe  Knglish in speech one so quickly learns to  love, lie was mechanically ruling double  red-ink lines in a book where a life's account of services htul been credited and  closed, much as a bank-book is ruled when  ti statement is rendered from tt balance  struck. The words "Died" or "Deserted."  placed in red ink in the space below,  showed the cause of closing for service  abruptly terminated, the usual remark  was ".Discharged by expiration term of  service" in black ink.  "Sergeant, whose will be the next  bloody "i)?"' asked Leighton. without a  ring of feeling.  ������There'll be plenty of'em, if this blooming heat continues and we remain in this  camp." I replied.  " And do you suppose the devil will ever  want a transcript from Murray's court-  martial record?" .Murray had been an excellent troop blacksmith, but tt most constant drunkard, so his record wasa full  one.  "If he does, -Murray won't draw brimstone liquor for a year." 1 replied.  "The lad will be none the worse for  that���for surely here he had a most consuming thirst."  We were working at this official funeral  iu fhe sultry summer night by the unsteady light of lantern candles, tind xvere  not feeling impressed or reverent. Leighton wtis in his undershirt, open tit his  handsome brown throat. As he leaned  over the books tit work, ti locket from his  bosom fell the slack of its gold chain and  struck tlie desk.  i noticed if. tind he took it off. handing  it, fo me with indilTe'-ence. lie hud opened  the locket, revealing the portrait, which  was tliat of a fresh young girl���one of  those sweet I'higlish-faces, whose charm is  complexion and expression of ��� confidence,  complete. The eyes arrested .you���pathetic, soft-brown eyes, so tender they  seemed to reproach, and, as you changed  your.poiii't of .view of .the-miniature,'followed .S'ou with their full, warm light. J.  have seen such affectionate light only in  the brown eyes of-faithful dogs watching  those they love.  Weeing my more than  casual   notice of  the   portrait,    Leighton added:    "It's tin  dust to the off  was a weary,  under burning >���  thirsty hind of  giving for a few c  er pursuing columns. It  stern-chase, ���pjrforined  kies of cloudless bine in a  heat intolerable. And it  wtis best expressed by our lieutenant,  who. on being informed by a certain captain of "Nubian Horse" that he was after  Ceroiiinio. replied: "Yes. captain, a long  way after." It was like cutting cards for  an ace or calling the turn tit roulette or  faro to tell which one of some twenty-live  troops would be in at thedealh.  We had had our little spurt;; had  brushed them off the divide, tind for three  days led in the open across the valley fo  the Sierra Mtulre. where Iresher horse-  llesh cut in from our right and took from  us the place of honor a nd left us, foot-sore  and back-sore and winded, tit the base of  the mountains, where we were ordered a  day's march back into the valley, near the  border, to guard water-holes of the San  Simon in the sullen month of August.  The nights were getting bearable, but the  day heat still held on with the stubborn  insistence of a southern summer. Our  camp was not happy���the water was bad;  our shelter-halves, but little thicker than  cheese-cloth, proved leaky sun-shades, and  we rein forced , them with our saddle-  blankets: we had no amusement except  to growl, wish we were in the chase, and  wonder whose blooming intellect, had  squatted us down among Gila inonsleis  and sand-Mies to watch wafer so foul  neither soil nor sun would drink it.  The local sports of the cantonment xvere  disgusted. A week before they were giving odds ten to three- on us in the race;,  tind now used pool-checks to light cigarettes from tlie candles about the cook-fire.  There was not a drop of anything in camp.  The tobacco was running low. The only  park of cards wtis a "inontc lay-out" our  pucker had scraped from horse-hide with  ;i piece of broken glass.  Something was going to happen, for the  .-train was telling on men's nervi's. The  weather was too hot for camp idleness,  ami we were near the "line." I was first  sergeant of L Troop then, find next to a  coward or ti   thief,   I  think   I   loathed ti  old story: not worth   the  telling;'J'don't  know why I keep it."  lie spoke with the same absent interest  we were feeling over this work for the  dead. It struck me as peculiar that in a  romance accomplished there should be no  trace either of bitterness or��� remorse, only  of weary indifference. I was so quickly  fascinated by the lace that Leightoifs  manner annoyed me, and i did not ask'  him for the story. 'Possibly overheat  makes men irritable,'for somehow I resented this careless fellow wearing about  him ti face like that, with less interest  than he wore his spurs. I did not then  notice the resemblance of the .face to  Leigh ton's.  I stopped abruptly and thought of  desertion, changing the conversation to  this, the subject of my day's musing.  " Leigh ton, something's got to be done  to relieve the pressure. I know the lieutenant would like to do so. Me .fools the  pulse of this ctunp and knows the symptoms. .But what can he do?���his orders  to remain hero, are .imperative, and he  can't "pass" us across the line."  "Hunting leave." laughed Leighton.  "Hunting leave;, then, let it be," I replied, "with noc|iiestions asked tis to game  or preserve, though I can tell what yours  will be, you young devil! Tomorrow  make out a hunting pass for six." Leighton was humming a catchy service ballad  that had .appeared in London music-halls  the year before, and did not reply.  Next; morning. I presented with the report four-days' hunting pass for six men.  The lieutenant clipped his pen in the ink  aud held itiu contemplation for a moment  above the place I'or signature. looking  thoughtfully .across the level plain. Then,  with quick decision: "I wish, sergeant,  you and Leighton would take hunting  pass, tind let no complications arise." He-  signed the pass, adding our names to the  text.  The following evening found us till in  Correlitos. Aftet dinner, while smoking  Vuelta Abajo of the "Zona Libra," I  strolled through tlie streets of this old  Spanish town, watching the wealth of tt  western sunset, where the after-glow wtis  fast lading. High above the mountain  tops lay great- billows of russet flame,  with crests like the mane of a wind-fanned  prairie lire. Lower iu the niadre spread  the pure deep purple of southern twilight,  while from the foot-hills came tho soft  evening breeze born tifter the first heat of  day. Kven sounds fell on the ear so  gently you thought that before reaching  you they must, have loitered to bathe in  the acequia and caught some of its  murmur.  On the plazti I passed two groups of  comrades, one seeking solace in brandy.  the other fortune in roulette pleasant  pastimes thai might lead lo "complications" while money lasted, and would  bear light watching.  I walked on to the .Jardin de Oro. a  smtill public park", where serenaders an;  inspired find listeners stroll or scat themselves on benches or the grass.  (July those who have suffered the heat  tind glare of ti campaign in the desert can  green trees and of water, i wtis seated  listening to the soft Indian Spanish as it  fell about me in slow chatter. Prom afar  it mingled with the murmur of tho fountain.  What ti contrast this scene to tho hot  camp I had just left, where were heard  only the whirr of the rattlesnake or the  insistent cooing of the lonely turtledove  -mournful sounds which seem to add to  the vibrant heal. Above fhe mountains  lay ti zone of troubled white, from which  the moon had now risen into the full, upper blue, causing the leaves over head to  cast shadows in arabesque on the grass a f  my feet, where, a.s the night breeze stirred the foliage, if wove marvelous figures  in trefoil tind tracery for fancy to play  with as those made by Humes in a. grate.  Now it was the lines of a Gothic window,  seen in tin old cathedral tind almost forgotten, and now. on grander scale, the  design of delicate drawn work recti lied  from my lady's chamber.  Leighton was there, a mantilla beside  him. I could only half sue the revealed  ovtil of the lace, but fhe figure was slight  tind pretty, for I caught Us graceful outline later when they passed me.  Next evening, at ti btiile, Leighton presented ine to Panchita. Together they  were dancing���he and this pretty tiniihtil,  with eyes for him alone. In the desert so  rapid i.s love's kindling, so quick and full  its flame, no charred or ,half-burned  brands are here left on love's altar. All i.s  coi isi in ied. fi nd what survives must spring.  phumix-Iike. from fire or else decent! from  heaven.  Affer the dtinza ended. Leighton was  standing in shirt-sleeves near hinchita,  with fhe. collar of his jersey open at the  throat���a trick of his that made me suspect, he had seen service in the navy. As  he leaned over her, Panehita's eye caught  sight of the locket chain, tintl he removed  the locket, opened it, and handed it to her;  this time not indifferently, but with all the  pride of prized conquest.'  I was watching Panchita closely as she  gazed fascinated by the portrait, tind I  saw her tremble. Only as I read lier face  then by what I now know, can J toll how  well if expressed all that hopeless sense of  loss which comes with the abandonment  of things loved or desired. For an instant  her eyes showed the rage a child some-  limes feels for an inanimate object, when  thttt object has hurt it. And I thought  she would break the locket: then the woman conquered, and she smiled as she returned it.  "Klla es muy herinosa. senor!"  From   that   moment her abandonment  toward Leighton was complete: her gay-  efy and grtice  became exquisite, while'a  look from him  would lead her.  ���"Oil, you Kastcin dervish of hearts!" J  exela.in.ied.to. myself, as Panchita left hi in  tind skip]ied to get a, handful of casearones  and then returned, crushing tlie pretty,  tinsel spangles in u .shower over his brown  head and throat. She flitted about him  with the grtice of a., bird, "and her eyes  never left him. She wtis becoming intoxicated with her own movements; her  cheeks were flushed with bright fever-  spots, and her eyes shone like stars. On  and .on..they danced, seeing only each  other,'and she looked as if she could dance  forever.  At length Leighton proposed they go,  and she obeyed his wish tis if hypnotized  or impelled to do it; tind, ignoring .������.her  deiinna. they left together.  ol for the White Grouse Mountain Mines!  The Rich Copper-Silver Mines on Grouse  Mountain are easily reached from  the new townsite on the east side of Kootenay Lake, and which is distant about sixteen  miles from the mines.

Duties levied on such  raw materials are returned to the exporter when the manufactured product is  sold abroad, thus making such materials  fvee of duty.  It is difficult to understand whether  president Cleveland and speaker Crisp intend deliberately to deceive, or whether  they simply do not know what they are  talking about. We have now what tire  practically free raw materials for our  foreign trade, and protected raw materitils  for our home trade: we are certain of our  home market, and have an equal chance  in foreign markets. The statements of  the president and the speaker are false���  thtit is the only word to use. Jhif probably  they are not deliberately false. Perhaps  neither gentlemen litis ever read the .McKinley Bill, lu that case, they could reply, as did Dr. .Johnson when asked by a  lady why lie had made a certain incorrect  delinifion: "Ignorance, madame: pure  ignorance."

The authorized capital  of his company i.s $2.'5,0(X).  The next week I ruled Leigh ton's official  epitaph in the L Troop records thus:  "Deserted from hunting pass August IS,  ISSO."  You see the case was an awkward one.  The night of tlie bade he had been.stabbed  in the'park. I found his body there, and  my comrades were about to string up  Morales, Panehita's local admirer, for the  stabbing, when I stopped them.  "Hold on boys, 1 said; "remember I  promised the lieutenant no "complications."'  So Leighton became officially a "deserter," and I .'kept my word.  Besides, ] doubt if stringing up would  have been fair to Morales, for when I  found Leighton's body, the locket wtis  lying on the ground beside it. The clasp  was open and the portrait blood-stained  and mutilated, tis if by the point of a  dagger.  1 think Leighton half knew what he  was doing when he flaunted that portrait  tit Panchita- he was a careless devil, and  loved danger in a way to win any woman's  heart. But you see it was his first affair  iu this land, aud he was mistaken in their  temper.  liow could I hit his record remain so?  Well, what could I do? Besides. Leighton  wits not- his right, name, as I found out  afterward when leading his home letters  to get his relatives' address. His name  was .lack Laiighorn. and lhat locket the  rascal showed me contained a portrait of  his youngest sister. 1 found out in writing "to his family, whom I fold that Lang-  horn wtis killed by lhe Apaches in the  fight at Chiracliuca Pass - that occurred  two weeks before his death.

The Chicago Herald gives the following  laughable account of bow a nervy Chicago  dentist extracted an aching tooth from  the-.jaw of a lady from Dahomey, (luring  the World's Pair. The article is till the;  'more readable because of a recent visit to  Nelson of a nervy dentist, who has had  hundreds of like adventures at Bonner's  Ferry, a town in So Man's Land:  "It was late one night during the fair  when Or. Yeager's residence bell was  rung. The visitor was a messenger from  manager Penny of the Dahomey village,  asking the physician to come at once to  the village and attend a patient suffering  from the toothache. The doctor went  more for the sake of the adventure than  for the fee. He was stiown to the bedside  of the woman and proceeded to examine  the big tooth inclosed in a, mouth that  .openedI like a cellar door. To make sure  which wtis the offending tooth Dr. Yeager  began prying around with his little steel  instrument so familiar to till who have  visited the chamber of horrors known a.s  dentist's parlors. ; lie accidentally touched  the nerve of the decayed and aching molar,  and the ania/.on let loose a yell that drew  to her side every member of the village.  *'lt was an excited tind wildly demonstrative crowd'tluit danced about the woman's bedside. Dr. Veager coolly continued his work, however, and finally, before the woman could prevent him, he  had sneaked from his pocket a pair of  shining forceps a nel hooked on to the pain  producing worry. Sari was not astonished, but she was hurt. A.s the steel instrument went crashing into tlie gum surrounding the aching tootli the brawny  woman sot up a howl that set every one  of her sisters and the black men wild with  excitement. The louder the a ma/on yelled  the harder Dr. Veager pulled. Shestruck  wilclly at the man tit tlie other end of the  forceps, but the doctor's dodging powers  are tis acute as they xvere the day he left  the college football team. ;  ���'She finally leaped from the cot on  which she reclined, and still the doctor j  pulled at the molar. Sari struck viciously j  tit her torturer, but here the doctor j  showed great strategy by keeping the I  woman's head so far in advance ol' her  body that the blows full short.  "���Around and around the village went  the doctor tind the patient. The former  tugged and kept cool. The woman made  the night hideous with her cries find grew  angrier every moment. Still the molar  held its own. The men in the village  danced about the struggling doctor and  iiniii'/.on fi f if I expressed their delight a t the  spectacle in wild dances find peculiar cries.  "The end came tit last and in a most unexpected manner. Sonic of the villagers,  perceiving that the doctor's strength was  almost, exhausted and admiring the pluck  he demonstrated by holding on tis long as  he had. decided to fake the matter in  hand, separate the man of medicine from  the insanely angry woman and fit the  same time protect the former from injury.  Three or four men sci/.od the woman, ami  two aniti/.oiis seized the doctor. The two  piirties pulled in opposite directions, and  suddenly fhe bond that united the doctor  and she of the aching molar was broken.  At the same instant fhe woman was  thrown over the heads of the attacking  party tit, her rear, and fhe doctor went  sailing over fin- shoulders of I host; who  had sei/.ed him.

He reports work  ���steadily progressing on the railway south  i'roin Kevelstoke and that it will be completed to the head of I'pper Arrow lake  early in the summer. Me also says tt report is current among railway men that  the Canadian Pacific will connect the Slocan Ac Nakusp with the Columbia Ac Kooteiniy next summer. Times are quiet in  the towns ttlong tin- (.'. P. K. and in the  cities on the coast, but no place is apparently as dull tts Spokane.  Reported Settled.  The report conies from Victoria that  the litigation over the New Denver town-  site has been brought fo tin end by coin-  promise. The on tiers retain five-sevenths,  the claimants getting two-sevenths. The  clai intuits brought suit to reco vert he north  two-thirds of the land granted to Angus  McGillivray -prticfii-ally all that wtis of  any value! If the report is authentic,  New Denver will now be in the race for  the town supremacy of Slocan   District.  Advised to Follow New Denver's Lead.  The opponents of the West Kootenay  convention held a meeting at Ktislo on  Thursday evening, but it was slimly attended. C. I'L Perry was in the chair and  Mr. Easton acted as secretary.    The chair  Legislative    Honors   Sought   for   by   a   Well-  Known   Resident   of  Nakusp.  The Nakusp Ledge of the ISth contains  the following:  ���'Vielding- to the wishes of tt host of  friends and well wishers���as the story  books say���D. A. McDougall, the proprietor of the well-known Lei and house, in  this town, has consented to permit his  name to be placed before the electors as a  candidate for this district in the next  provincial election. 3Ir. McDougall believes he can secure sufficient votes to  place him in the coveted position, and in  that innocent belief we shall kindly let  him rest undisturbed. His. platform will  be decidedly antagonistic to that of Theodore Davie's government, to which, he  states, he i.s "opposed' on principle."  Among the planks in the aforesaid platform : Canada for Canadians; free silver  coinage and a national mint; larger grants  to roads and fill necessary public works in  West, .Knotenay, and ti host of other beautiful and momentous subjects. He will  also appeal to theconvictionsof till strictly  honest. Liberals, or Grits, in the country,  and in this way liring to the front the old  partyisius   of   eastern   Canada ft   truly  novel feature in liritish Columbia politics.  .Mr. McDougall hails from the good old  Scotch county of liruce, in northwestern  Ontario, tind he emphatically ttsserts that  he "will carry the riding." Me is a good  stump speaker and when warmed to the  subject can talk in a manner rivaling any  son of I'lrin. In educational matters he; i.s  intensely interested, being tit present one  of our public school trustees, and in all  affairs appertaining fo the weal of the  citizens he is .always well to the front.  Such then is our local candidate's stand,  and the worst we can wish him is that he  will not be hist in thegreat political race  to be run in West Kootenay some time  during the present year. As each town is  to have its own candidate there i.s certain  to be an abundance of excitement, wliich  will be increased as new rivals appear on  the scene���the eighth man having this  week sent up his noteof warning from the  lower end of the district.
