There are live newspapers publishod in  this portion of tho district, three banks in  operation, six passenger steamers make  daily trips, a largo number of mercantile  houses art; established, and our population and commercial interests require  gi eat efficiency of mail service; but from  the reports (hat reach us, we find (here is  a total lack' of conlidence in the postofiice:  as a medium for the. punctual or regular  transmission of mail.

DOfiS   PROTECTION  i'  port:  number of indictments considered  ' true bills returned is ihe host proof  I hat the people of this .section of the province are law-abiding oiLi/.ens. even as  much so as were (he people of the earlier-  discovered mining district's.  A. numerously signed petition was presented us. and we have made, due inquiry  .regarding the questions thuse-alkd Lo our  ��� attention.,' We found that the complaint  of the petitioners was based on tho spread'  of tho social evil : a.questioii that lias boon,  found a troublesome oik? to deal with in  all civilized countries. We.believe that  the regulation of the eviL should be  left to tho authorities, but that the authorities have? been neglectful in tho past,  as certain of the houses complained ol  have been allowed to flourish in close proximity to house.*- occupied Py respectable  families, many of whom have'children.  'Another of the houses complained of (a  place of public entertainment) has had its  respectability attested by the holding of  a. session of court within its wal.s. This  appears Lo us tube an uiuvise act ion ou  the part of the authorities: for if the  courts a re lo be respected., their sessions  should be h .sld amid surrountiit.gs that are  suggestive of respectability.  We. iu order to aid the authorities,  brought in a true bill against one of the  houses complained of by tho petitioners :  and we do recommend that hereafter sessions of court bo not hoid in buildings used  for a business that is considered by many  of our people productive of vice and dissipation.  We 'inspected the jail at Xelson. Although it is but two yearssinee this building was erected, it is now qui e inadequate  for its purposoand lucking in many tilings  necessary for its good management. We  found a prisoner who had uoen seriously  injured conlined in one of t he cells, ami  the jailer without any appliances for hi.s  treatment: there is neither bath nor wash  rooms and only a small stove. 'I'I io nn plastered walls, shou.d they become infesied  with vermin.could ueveraflorwards be rid  of tlieiu. Willi a large forceof railroad men  in proximity, we fear that the authorities  will liinl themselves in close quarters this  summer, and we urge upon the government the necessity for the i mined ia leenlargement and renovation of the building.  We found scrupulous cleanliness and order  as far as the means at the disposal of the  jailer would permit.  The inconvenience of the present system  of registering titles has been brought bo-  fore us. With some twenty registeied  town plats (several of which are rapidly  growing towns), and a large number of  conveyances executed in the district, we  have no registration office nearer than  Victoria. We submit that it would  scarcely cost the government more to  have the work of registration done hero  than at Victoria, and the economy of time  and expense, to say nothing of the lessening of trouble and annoyance, thereby effected to our peop.e would be enormous.  A lack of facilities for the collection of  small debts is a standing gr.i v.uu o in . he  district. Our people are denied regular  times at which to sot tie their differences  in court. This, we believe, is not because  of an overworked judiciary, but because  of an nn willingness on the part of tlie  government to grant our people what is  granted those of other and more favored  sections.  Wo find much complaint of tho mail  .service throughout, the district.    Our de-  Tend to Degrade the People of Canada and  the United States?  A despatch from Fort Huron. Michigan,  says that trade in that town has been seriously affected of late as a consequencof  the exceptional vigilance of Canadian custom oflicers and detectives, who have been  successful inoxposingnuinoroussmuggling  operations on a small scale by eiti/.ens of  Snrnia. and mulcting the offenders in  heavy fines. The reports may be exaggerated, but they'serve to call attention to a  phase of tlie working or a high protective  tariff whicli i.s not usually sufficiently considered.    We   refer to  its affect in .1 ottering'dissimulation  and   blunting tht;,eelge  ���ol that nice sense of honour which cannot  be   too  assiduously   cultivated.     No   e'hi;  who knows  anything .about  the  matter  doubts that in spite of all the vigilance of  the  oflicers sta i loni'd  on   lvootenay  lake  and river a large amount of smuggling is  ���done, not only oy  unprincipled hucksters  who make a business of it, but by respectable, and in all other niaiters, honest citizens.    Indeed, it is no uncommon thing to  meet' with people es tool nod by themselves  and .others., .exceptionally,   "good,"   who.  have persuaded   thoinseives   that there is  no moral   wrong whatever in evading the  duty on  small   purchases for their own  use or for. that of their neighbors.'  When  they are opposed to   protection on principle, their arguments are somewhat after  ibis   fashion,    y'ihi.s  article   is   mine.    1  have  purchased it and   paid I'or it its full  value.    Hence   not oven  the government  has any right to stop in and compel me to  pay an additional sum-for-the privilege of  taxing it homo and using it."    tint we art-  far from   insinuating that the smugglers  of this class are -ill enemies of protection.  On tho contrary, there is good   reason  to  believe that the proportion   of those who  evade the payment of duty whenever possible is just as large amongst those wiio  vote for protection as a-policy as amongst  those who do not, though how the former  can defend their evasion, saveou the principle that they  believe in  high taxation  lor all but themselves,   we  are unable to  conjecture.   -Headers    who   pride  themselves on   taking thoroughly .."practical"  views of all questions   may  sneer at  the  ethical view of  the case,   Out the morally  thoughtful   cannot  fail to  perceive   that  whatever tends to lower the moral tone of  a large a I ass-of citi/.ons.  or to impair in  any  degree  tho'tlelicacy of thei  honor,    tends   to   degrade   the  character.  ��� sense of  national  An Uiuair _-'Ui_.o_e.  We hear strange  reports   from time to  time concerning the alleged strength and  purpose of the secret society known as the  ���'Protestant      Protective      Association,''  which   is said to have  extensive ratnilica-  cations ou both sides of the  international  boundary line,     it is not unlikely that the  'current  notions with regard   to the numbers  and influence of this society may be  a gootl   deal   exaggerated,   in  accordance  with the   tendency to iiris.aKe "whatever  is unknown is tnought tube magnificent,"  Vet there can bo no douot that.such a society  exists:  that its  membership  is uot  insignificant, and, if we may behove.statements which we have seen over the signature of a respectable member,  that itsob-  je t. is sinister.    That object, as generally  understood,  and   as  openly   declared   by  credible persons who ciami to be members,  is iiei.her more nor loss than to  keep Roman Catholics oncol' office, and to depose  those who already occupy public ami odi-  clal   positions.     A   more unfair  purpose  could   hardly  bo avowed,  especially  in a  country like Canada, in which tho citizens  who are thus marked ou. for proscription  at the polls not only constitutea very considerable part of the  population, but are  very  largely in the  majority in one of its  provinces, and ha ve special rights guaranteed to them by   the constitution.    There  can be no better test of the character of a  given policy than a calm consideration of  the state of things  which   would result  should   that   policy   completely  prevail.  But a moments   reflection is   required   to  make it clear that the complete success ot  the association in question in Camum.���implying, as of course it would, the exclusion  iroiii office, not only of tlie present leader*  of both political parties in the Dominion,  but of a. number of the subordinate and  not always least honorable and  efficient  members'of the federal parliament, and of  each of  the  provincial   legislatures,  and  thus inflicting a cruel injustieeaiid wrong  upon   perhaps  one-third of   . he people ol  Canada,    would mean  elthtrchii war or  the   upbroak  of  the confederation,   and  probably both.  KASLO   IN   GREAT   DANGER.  Not from,its Trade Being Diverted, but from  Destruction by Fire.  No (own in Canada has been better advertised than Ivaslo, and that, too, wifh-  o.itexpenso to the owners of the townsite;  but today it is suffering from being too  well advertised. The advertisements  caused a large number of people of small  means to locate in the town, and business  of all kinds is too well represented.   When  real   estate;   was  changing  hands   freely,  times were good and everyone was happy:  but now. when lew sales  of real property  art; being made, times art. <|tiiet, and nota  few   predict   that   the   town   is  going   to  smash.    Those who  pre;;-ict this can have  but little faith in the country,  for if the  country is any good it certainly can support a town larger than   Kaslo i.s at present.    The   trouble   is that  the town   was  over-boomed, and.   as in all over-boomed  towns, real   estate and   rents wore raised  unreasonably high, so high that when the  reaction took place nany who had bought  property on  time lost all   they   invented,  for   prices   have dropped .10 per cone and  more in   the last  thirty days.    Vet, even  now. prices are too high _ for  tho  man   of  moderate means Lo niakoinvoskinents wit h  any show of receiving fair interest thereon.    The   best   indication   that  residence  property is beyond the means of poor men  is tlie number  of shacks and cabins occupied   by  squatters, for if residence  property   had   been  within   reach a  fair  percentage of these people -would have purchased ground and squatted on their own  property.    To the average stranger,  the  lack of residences indicates a 'people who  ire without  confidence  in the place, and  i  1  town presents a creditable appearance,  and whileall lines are'too well represented,  if rents were scaled down, most of those  now in business would -pull through. Kaslo  is in more danger from being wiped out by  fire than from its trade being diverted to  o( her points. :".''..,..  THE   NELSON   <fc   FORT   SHEPPARD.

' The business portion of the  BANK   FAILURES   IN   SPOKANE.  The    Banks   in   the   Kootenay   Lake   Country  Solvent  and Safe;  The telegraph line being down between  Nelson and Spokane,' ho authentic "advice s  have been received from the latter place  regarding the bank failures. On Tuesday  rumors were afloat regarding the failure  of the Bank of Spokane: Falls and, the  Washington National Bank, the former a  private bank owned principally by A. M.  Cannon and tho latter a national bank in  wliich Mr. Cannon is a stockholder. On  Wednesday the telegraph line was working just long enough for the officials to sa-y  that it was 'working. Passengers, however, who left Spokane on Wednesday  ��� morning-report four banks closed ���--the  two above mentioned and the Washington Savings and the Citizens National -  but that there was no panic.  Banks, like individuals, cannot always  realize on their assets una day's notice:  and it often happens that perfectly solvent institutions are forced to suspend  payments for a time in order to realize on  their .securities without loss. In times  like these, what is wanted i.s confidence.  If that is lacking, not only the banks but  the business interests of the country must  suffer losses that will require time to restore. The chartered banks of .Canada  are perfectly solvent, under existing conditions, and if they remain so it will be  proof that the banking system of Canada  is better than that of the United States,  for if all the banks in a place like Spokane  go to the wall, there i.s sure to be  suspensions throughout every state in  tlie Union. There -should be no uneasiness in the Kootenay Lake country, for  its banks have in their vaults a dollar I'or  every dollar duo depositors.  NEW   DENVER    NOTES.  Once tlie  Grade  is  "Well   Under  "Way,  a Mile  of Track Will be Laid a Day.  I.. .J. Koberts. chief engineer of the Nelson 6c Fort Sheppard rail.way. was in Nelson on Wednesday.    He.said the road will  be completed   and trains  running over it  by  October   1st.    The  distance  from the  boundary  line is about  sixty   miles,   and  from Spokane in   the close  neighborhood  of _()().    The work on tho Nelson end   is in  good   shape,  and the. only  difficulty is at  the Fort Sheppaid   end. where  there i.s a  mile or two of heavy   work.    The track is  now at the Is(mkI d'Orieile bridge, and will  be across the bridge by July 1st.    It is the  intention to  keep tlie   track close on the  heels of  the graders,  and.   making all allowances for delays, a mile of track a. day  should be laid, after August 1st.    It is not  known   when   regular  trains   will be run  north   of Northport.   but  probably   not  until the track is   well over  towards Salmon river.    The   grade   is   an   easy   one  (eighty   feet to the mile) from the Columbia   river  folho summit at Cottonwood  Smith   lake;   but from   the lake  to Five-  mile )joint, it is a 21 per cent one. or about  l:j() foot  to the  mile.    Five  hundred men  are at work   on the Fort Sheppard  end.  and as many more waiting to go to work.  At tho   Nelson end, contractors  McLean  and   Nelson   have their  camps  built and  men strung along the work. Nelson's first  camp is at the crossing of the east fork ol'  Cottonwood Smith  creek, whores grading  was commenced yesterday.-   As Mr.   Roberts '/'was   chief   engineer   on   the   Great  Northern when   that ���compa-n'y'-'built- o50-  miles of road in seven months,   in INS",-he  probably 'knows  pretty  near what.-'-he is  talking about when he says trains will be  running into Nelson by October 1st.  Nelson and  all points on   Kootenay lake.  Ho also made an arrangement for -the delivery of mails at  Lardo until  such time,  as a postofiice could be established at that  place1.    As the provincial government lias  seem fit to make Lardeau   on the east arm  of Upper Arrow lakea record office, which,  in a great measure', gives the name it bears  official precedence over Lardo. the owners  of the latter  townsite   had better change  the   name to one over which there fan brim conflict, for the posteif'fice department  is not likely to e-stablish two offices "of .the  same name in the same district.    Hereafter,   through   niails from   Kevelstoke anel  Spokane for Ivaslo will go direct from the  railway depot at Nelson to thost earner Nelson on Sundays, Tuesdays.and Thursdays.  Mails from   Kaslo I'or outside   points will  bo   transferred   from   tho steamer   Ainsworth to the railway direct em Tuesdays,  Thursdays, and Saturdays.    All mails for  .Balfour.   Pilot  Bay.  aud Ainsworth   anri  local mails for Ivaslo will leave Nelson by  the steamer Ainsworth on Me>ndays,Wed-  nestlays.  and   Fridays.

Nelson    Now  Steamboats  .June 2nd. -There is a strong feeling  among New Denver people that they are;  entitled to more than the weekly mail iie>w  allowed, anel this feeling has found utterance iu a numerously signed petition te>  the postmaster-general for increased facilities. The fact of the mining recorel office  of the district being loe-ated here is alone-  a sufficient reason I'or asking for at least a  tri-weekly mail.  If any portion of the; money appropriated for roads and trails is to he used in  this section this summer, work should bo  conimciu*od at once. A wagon road tei  Throe Forks is a necessity.  Notices have been posted, by order of  the: assistant commissioner of lands and  works, calling em the owners and occupiers of buildings situated on the streets  to remove the same, as the government  intends to commence clearing and grading  streets at eme-e;.  The Halfway house ou the Slocan Biver  trail is closed, which indicates that tlu-ro  is ne)t much travel by way of that route.  The Madden boys have their pack train on  the reiute-, anel seem to have; all the fivight  they can handle.  A butcher shop has been openeel henr.  the beef cattle to be slaughtered at the-  upper end of Slocan lake, where there are  meadows on whicli cattle; can be grazed.  The steamboat VV. .'Hunter has had  another dock added, anel makes regular  trip daily from Now Denver to Four Mile  City (now called Silverton). thence to the  upper end of the hike; ami back to New  Denver. On Mondays. Wednesdays, and  Saturdays a circuit of the lake is made,  enabling passengers over the Slocan Biver  trail to rtiaeh Four Mile anel New Denver  by 11 o'clock in the forenoon.

But  every, dog has its.'day, and Nelson's day  i. ��� not far distant. On a Sunday there are1  n fore; stea in boat captains in Nelson than  colonels and judges in a Kentucky te>wn  of twice the size;, l.very boat'oil tho lake-  calls regularly, except, tho State of Idaho,  anel tho only/thing that keeps her from  co-iiing is the fear of a elainago suit for  breaking the telephone company's wire  that crosses,the Outlet at the Narrows.  The Ainsworth'has been awarded a contract' for carrying the mails, anel from  this time on will lea ve Nelson on Mondays, AV'ednesdays, and Fridays at S A.M.  Returning, she will leave Lardoat ~> A.M.  anel Kaslo at S A.M. on Tuestlays, Thurs-  ��� days, and'Saturdays. The Spoka-nc i.s e>n  the same route. She ltsaves Nelson at U  A.M. em Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, returning on W'e-dnesdays. Fridays,  anel Sundays. The Nelson-makes three  round trips a \v��.;ek between Nelson and  Bonner's 'Ferry, leaving Nelson on Sundays. Tuesdays, anel Thursdays.' The  State of Idaho", after the 1st of .Inly, will  also-run between Nelson and Bonner's  Forry.'as' from that time on Nelson will bean outporfc.  On the Columbia- river, the Columbia'  and Lytton are making regular trips; the  former between Hobson and ' Northport.  and the; latter between Robson and Kevelstoke. Tlie Kootenai makes an occasional trip with freight from Beveslstoke.  The Marion is run be'twee-n Revelstoke;  and Lardeau, the town ou tho oast arm of  Upper Arrow lake.  A New Recording Division.  The provincial government gazettes the  establishment of another mining division  in West Kootenay district, with the town  of Lardeau, on the east arm of Upper Arrow lake, as the recording e-f'fie-e, and Daniel A. Lauiey as the reerorder. It is a commission elivision, the same as Trail Creek.-  Goat River, anel Illicillewaet. that is. the  mining recorder receives a e.-oiiimi.-sion on  the business transacted instead of a stipulated salary.

The Irish are  openly revolting against the; speakt;r's incapacity, but Ik; refuses closure anel .allows  twaddle nel Unit urn. Gladstone's antique-  courtliness is averse to arloptinggiiilleitine;  methods .knowing moreover.' that it  would afford a pretext tei the peers for  rejecting the- hill,.perhaps after his own  perseiiuil momentum is stilled forewer in  We-stiniiistor. He talks anel thinks of  nothing except e-arrying the bill, wishing  to be reineinbm-ed in connection with it.  Riiturning -home in the small hours of  last Wednesday morning, after a specially  wearying night, he remarked: "I ran  never go through a hot night in July."  His sayings are; now being treasured up  by his followers as if his hour were; coming. One; of them epiotetl is touching  enough in remonstrance against I'ac-  tionisui, "I hope the Irish will unite after  my di-al h." These premonitions, how-  <;ver, e-on trust, strangely at times with the  supernatural energy and vim of the old  man. who blazes like; a furnace whenever  tho Orangimie-n oiler au insult to their  e-o ntrymen. and springs at them lithe sis  ii naiither.

Three Years Ago President Van Home Accused  Himself of Being a Gambler for Building- a  Railway In Southern Kootenay, Now he is  Reported Only Too Willing that His Company Should Increase its Mileage in This  Section.   Many  of  the residents of Nelson   will  reinembe.'i- the first visit that AV. 0. Van  llornei, president of the-Canadian Pacific,  railway, made to this section; anri several  of them  will   remember  that he was reported as saying that the building of the  Columbia   <fc   Kootenay   railway   was   it  gamble, and  that  he dirl   not care what  kind of ii road his company built so long -  as the  trains  covered   the   distance   between Hobson anel Nelson in less than the  time taken by ".Jr-e" Wilson's pack train.  That  visit   was  made  in   the summer of  ISfK), and  made on  inuleback and in  ba-  te.'iiu.    Jt was as short as it was memorable to some of the railway oflicials who  got shook flip.    In  fae-t, Mr.  Vjui   Home  was'reported, at the time, to be in very  biiel humor:.  But times have e-hangtd.    In the three  years that have elapsed Southern Kootenay has imule progress, and the road that  was.considered a.gamble has been a prolifc-  able ..'feeder   te>    the -.'.Canadian     Pacific.  /'Whether.these causeis hael  any effect em  Mr. Villi Home is not"known, but it is ael-  mitted   that em   his  ree-ent  trip   he  was  .'"highly pleased" with -everything he saw  itnrl with everybody he met. lie predicted  a'great'future foi- this country, anel even  wont   so   far-as   to  predict  that  Xelson  would have a population-of 10.000 within  six years;   that it was-bound   te> ho the  mil way-..center of southern  British Columbia.      He is  also  reported  .-is   stating  that'the Crow's-Nest' Pass'ro.-ul would be  completed' to  Nelson within  two  years,  iinel that work would be commenced on it  within ninety clays.    That ho meant what  he said   is evidenced   by   the   fact   that  within  -18  hours of. "his ��� leaving   Nelson,  iin engineer party.of fifteen men. in charge  of ���'Sandy" Stewart,  wero   in   Ne;lson em  the way to make surveys for a practicable  route from Goat river through the mountains to Nelson.  . -Aside ��� from these encouraging predictions, Mr. Vsiii Horno's visit will do Southern Ke-otenay good in another way. He  was ae.-ce-i'upaineri'by men who are.' recognized iis able 'a iir.1 far-seeing business men,  anrl their influence among other business  nie.'ncan only result in attracting the attention of e-iipitiil to the many avenues in  whie-h it e-iin lie profitably invested in the  mining districts of British Columbia.

It: was given out by the faithful tlmt  premier I )<*i vie would address the people;  of Kaslo and (hose of Nelson while in the  lake country last week.

The shaft  is. down 200 feet.  A   station  will be put   in at the  200-foot  level and 200-foot drifts will  be run both  ways on the  ledge-.    There  is also a force  on the War Lagle.

According to the  townsite- plat,   lots   have   been  snrveyeil  (hat   are  covered   with   twenty   feet   of  water,  for several   months   in   the  year.  .Some of these lots would  of necessity  bo  used  for tin-   wharf bhe.'business   men intended   to   build,  and   flu;   agent,   of the  townsite owners.whs asked  to set   a,price  on'those wanted.    The figures given were  so high that the wharf project had to be  abandoned.    Then  another   project   was  started.'   The '-wharf was  to 'be   made a  joint stock affair, with a capital of $10,000.  the  townsite  owners taking a .portion of.  theselling price of the lots in stock.   This  naturally -led to tin?   iii(|tiiry :   "Where is  the revenue to come from 'to'pay interest  on   the   capital   invested'-1"   The  answer  given was. ���"Why from the freight handled  over it."    Several of the merchants began  to see  "a  nigger in   the wood-pile," antl  very emphatically declined to  be further  bled in   the interest of bhe townsite coni-  ptiny.    The chances are the present wharf  and warehouse  will   answer  all purposes  until  such   time  as the   townsite  owners  will cease demanding the "pound of flesh."  port, and a port does its business direct  with the department. The cost of running an out port' is loss than a port, and  that is the reason that Nelson is made an  otitporf. Nelson will do its business  through the port of New Westminster.  All boats from IJoiiner's Ferry will be required to enter and clear from Nelson before touching at other points in Mritish  Columbia."      Pound a Small Bonanza.  Since the lirst day it was worked, the  No. I mine, in Ainsworth di��trict. has  been a source of revenue to its owners,  even when most expensively worked. According to reports, the present lessees have,  a small bonanza, in the dump, wliich i.s estimated to contain iSOOO tons of ore that  can be profitably concentrated. One of  tlie lessees, .Mr. Stevenson, has rigged up  a hand jig! through "which lie daily runs  enough ore to return half a. ton of concentrates.'- As soon .as-machinery can be procured, the dump will,bo worked over systematically. A. rich body of ore has also  been struck iii the mine, and the Ies ees  think they  have a  good   thing-in   their  lease.  ___________  It  Was   "Nil."  A slide to the west of the Toad Mountain wagon road andiibtinore tlian a inile  and a half'from; Nelson uncovered ,-t big  strong ledge of quarts, that looked as if it  might contain gold in'paying quantities.'  The ground was staked and named "The  Single Standard."' a- promising-looking  specimen wsis assayed, and the return was  a surprise.  _ r<_  ____ ^->��.eya-'a  IT' "W"  JL J_L  Ji-   'it'    _?���  r-_5_TH  MEiBGIIiLlNrTi  )C1  leepies  f  u  l.i-OViOllllib*  ill   tUHU  I  TfJ" 1 fN i  iidiilWdrdf (5tU\  4~  V0;  qnri-  liiiii  mwai'e.  Unfair to Prospectors and Mine Owners.  From  reports  brought down   from the  upper country, it seems that all the people landing on bhe shores of the east arm  of Upper Arrow lake tire bound for Trout  Lake City. If these reports are true,  then Trout Lake City, and not Lardeau.  should have been made the record office  forthe new milling division of Lardeau.  Lardeau is at the extreme western side of  the mineral-bearing section embraced iii  the boundaries of tin,-new division, whilst  Trout Lake City is near the center. It is  certainly unfair to compel prospectors  and.mine owners to travel long distances  to make records merely to help out a  townsite .speculation.  Dominion Day to be Celebrated.  There is more patriotism  to the square  inch in a mining camp than there is bo the  square mile  in an  agricultural village, as  will  be  proven at Nelson ou  Saturday,  .July 1st, the twenty-sixth anniversary of  tlie creation of  tne Dominion  of Canada,  next to the I'nited States of America, the  greatest country on earth. Already enough  money has been subscribed   to hire music  and fire cannon, and   before   the   week is  closed enough will   be subscribed to give  I liberal prizes to successful competitors in  ! Caledonian   games   and   aquatic   sports.  | Liberal   purses   will   also  be hung up for  j horse and  footraces  and tug-of-wa r and  drilling contests.  School   Report.
