 East anb lil est Kootenay.  Have   Better Showings  for Mines than   any  other Sections on the Continent  of America.  (Capital anb Brains  Can   Both   be' Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining- Camps of East and  West  Kootenay.   '  FIT-ST  YEAR-NO.  A  NELSON,   BKITISH   COLUMBIA, THLTRSDAY, "MARCH   30,   18J)3.  PRICE  TEN  CENTS.  THE EVIDENCE AND THE REPORT  IN THE McGILLIVRAY-FARWELL CONTEST  - FOR  THE   NEW   DENVER   TOWNSITE.  Tho Evidence Goes to Show That Farwell  Has Some Sort of a "Pull" in the Land  Oflice, and the Report Favors McGillivray  ���The Government Wants to Give Far-  well the Land, but Does not Know How  ���   to  do  it  Legally. '  T ho AI cG i 11 i v n i y-1 ?t i1 ��� we 11 eo i 1 (;es fc L*c>i; tl 1 e  Now Denver townsite litis made |)laiii one  .... thing, that Js, .that-A. S. .Farwell .is accorded privileges by the officials oi the  land ollice that are not accorded other applicants for, land. Is it not just a trifle  strange that Mr. Farwell and his -Ment  partners should be allowed to purchase  land without even making a survey of it?  Yet, that was what Mr. Farwell proposed'  doing in the New Denver case, and  his  "purposes- were evidently sanctioned by  the surveyor-general, is it not about  time that Mr. Farwell and his gang were,  given to understand that the land office  was not run in (heir especial interest?  The first report of the special committee  appointed to inquire into the matter was  ruled out of order by speaker Higgins,  aud a second report, accompanied by additional evidence was laid before the assembly on the 21st, instant. The second  report, like the-first, is a unanimous one  and favors McGillivray. It say's: "From  tlie evidence obtained we are oi the  opinion' that Angus McGillivray has more  nearly .complied Avith the law than Mes rs.  Farwell and Fletcher.''  m'ciiluvkay's sim-: of tiik question.  'Farwell admits his staking was done by  agents, which fact is contrary to the Act.  lie produces no evidence to prove that  the land was staked even by agents,  simply states that he understood it was  slaked, or that his men told hini that  they had staked it.  He also admits his stake notice and Gazette notice are not the same. Tho committee find his stake notice is as follows:  "October 21st, 1801.���Notice'is hereby'given tlmt we,  the imdersi-jneil, claim H-0 acres o_ land, u-uiiinciiciiiK at  this post: ext-nilintr 10 chains west: thence SO chains  north; thence 10 chains east; thence SO chains south to  initial nost: containing 'A'iO acres of land, more or loss.  (Signed)       "J. FU-'Tt:HKK.  "A. S. KAItWKI,!,."  Now as this land is situated on the east  bank of Slocan'lake, ami the lake shore  is true north and south, and his initial  post was planted within a few feet of  the shore, the -10 chains west from initial  post would take him immediately into  the lake, so you will see by this notice  Avater was staked off instead of land.  We will now take Mr. Farwell's Gazette notice. You will lind he asks for 40  chains following the lake shore west;  thence SO chains following tho lake shore  north. You will remember as 1 stated a  moment ago the lake shore runs directly  north. Now how would it be possible to  run both west and north and follow tho  shore when the shore line is north?  It is plainly to be seen that when Mr.  Farwell's men returned to Ainsworth  after staking this land, that he found a  mistake had been made by tho men in  calling for land west from initial post,  when it should have been east from initial  post. So to try and overcome the difficulty he sent a different notice to the Gazette than the oho that had boon put upon  tho stake, but the change, if anything,  made it worse than before.  Now as regards the surveying. As you  know, it is necessary by law to have your  laud surveyed, and the Acton this point  is plain and distinct, but Mr. Farwell did  not think i_ worth his while to survey his  application, giving as an excuse for his  not doing so the fact that the government had already surveyed a block a  ��� mile square'at this point, a totally different piece of hind altogether, in fact by  no stretch of the imagination could his  application be made to lit the government  survey. Tho fact is ho seems to have forgotten that his men staked lake or lake  shore, or both, in place of land. In fact it  would bean impossibility for .Mr. Farweil  or any other surveyor to survey his application, and he no doubt was fully a ware  of thati'aet, or the chances are he would  have.complied with the Act. so his excuse  iii that respect should not have any consideration.  Mr. Farwell stated in his evidence that  there was no record in the land office of  McGillivray's applieation, but iu saying  that ho gives distinct proof that such record must exist, for he says the chief commissioner of lands and works told him  last .July���long before the reserve was  lifted���that McGillivray's applieation apparently covered the same ground as his,  and asked him to look the matter up. If  there Avas no record of McGillivray's  claim, how did the chief commissioner  know anything about it; but should no  record of McGillivray's claim exist il  should in no wise effect the case, as the  reserve was put on the laud by tho government for the express purpose of stopping'the record of these applications, or  preventing them filing their claims.  Mr. Farwell also stated in his evidence  that he did not know this land had been  previously staked by McGillivray, but in  the face of this statement he says Sandon  and White on their return told him that  McGillivary was on the ground tho same  day they staked it. putting up a fresh  notice. We 1, if he was putting up a  fresh notice, it stands to reason that In;  must have put up one previously.  I have shown a few instances in which  Still Serviceable.  W. II. Smith of New Denver arrived in  Xelson on Tuesday by the Ainsworth.  Me came over (-he Kaslo road on Monday  and reports it yet in fair condition. A  number of men are kept at work on if  shoveling snow. This is the road the government should at oncj put men ou, as it  is the only ono over wliich supplies can be  liauled to many of the mines in which  work is being dime.  Farwell has not complied Avith the Act.  The fact is, in no instance has he com-  ilied or attempted to comply with the  aw, excepting that he has paid into the  lands office .*f)_SS.0(). Why they .accepted  his and i efused mine I do not attempt to  guess.  Now. as regards my claim, it is shown  that a slight mistake was made in the  first notice, calling for too many chains  but the right number of acres; but you  will also fiiulthat when I discovered my  mistake, I immediately returned upon the  land and rectified it, and in every instance have I fully, and up to the strict  letter of the law, complied 'with every  part of the Act.    Axcius McGiijLivary.  KAUWEUYS   SIDE   OF   THE   QUESTION.  Victoria, February 20th, 1893.  , J. M. Kellie, Esq., M. P. P., Chairman  Committee on Slocan Land Claims���Sir:  I.beg'to'submit the following remarks, ve  Mr. Angus- iMcGiilivary's alleged- claiiii to  a 'certain tract of land at the mouth of  Carpenter, creek, on Slocan lake, West  Kootenay district.  According to Mr. McGillivary's evidence  lie appears to have placed a stake and  notice, dated October 9th, 1891,: on the  said land on the 9th of October,'1.891.'  On the 22nd or 2on I of October; 1891,Tie  placed a. new and different notice, dated  the 17th October, 1891, on the same stake.  He posted a copy of the said .last-mentioned notice on the record office at Ainsworth, and published it in the Miner and  Government Gazette newspapers. lie  took no other" steps to purchase the said  land until he saw a notice dated the 7th  September, 1892, in the Vancouver World,  lifting a, reso.ve placed on u'40 acres of.  land at the mouth of Carpenter creek on  the 17th March, 1892. He then employed  Mr. Perry to make a. survey of the land  covered by his notice of tlie 17th October,  1891. He also .tendered .air'application,  with a deposit of 10'per cent at the government office, Ne'son, wliich was refused.  (1.) I respectfully submit that the staking and notice on the 9th October, 1891,  was dropped by Mr. McGillivary.  (2.) That his second notice was bad, inasmuch as it was 'antedated fiA'e or six  days; aiid section 29 of tho '''Laud Act,"  as amended in 1891, required the staking  should be performed on the same date as  that "appearing on the notice, lu fact,  Mr. McGillivary commenced, de novo on  the 22nd or 23rd of October, 1891, with an  old stake and a notice dated tho 17th October, 1891.  (3). The act of posting a copy of the  notice, elated October 17th, 1891.', on the  record office at Ainsworth was useless, as  said section 29 required it to bo posted at  the government office of the district,  which was then, and is now, at Nelson.  (-1). Said section 29 requires that the  appl cant shall ''deposit ton per cent of  the purchase money, together Avith his  application to purchase within ninety  days from the date of the publication of  his* notice in the British Columbia Gazette."  This act Mr. McGillivary failed to perform for the reason, he says, of the land  having been reserved..  (5). Mr. McGillivary's position iu this  respect, is, I submit, untenable.  The reserve of tho 31st December, 1891,  ami  which continued  in force until the'  17th March, 1892, only covered and did reserve the crown lands of the province.  Section 2 of, the said act interprets tho  moaning of "crown lands" a.s follows:  ''Crown lands shall moan all lands of this  province held by the crowu without incumbrance.'  Preemption claims and applications to  purchase" are incumbrances on crown  lands; they are separate modes of acquiring land, with the difference that an amplication to purchase may be refused by  the chief commissioner of landsand works  under sub-section 3 of section 29 of the  "Land Act." The chief commissioner has  ruled in similar cases that the applicant  not having made his application and paid  his deposit, within the said ninety days  hi.s application could not be entertained.  (0). With regard to Mr. Perry's survey  of the land claimed by Mi: McGillivary, I  submit Mr. Perry exceeded his duty as a  provincial land surveyor, inasmuch as ho  had previously surveyed the whole section reserved at the mouth'of Carpenter  creek for tiie chief commissioner of lands  and works, and furthermore had subdivided a portion of the said section into  lots and blocks as a townsite for the provincial government. I'ndor clause 29 of  the said act surveys of applications to  purchase unsurveyed land are provided fo  be made by provincial laud surveyors, approved of'and acting under the .instructions of the chief commissioner of lands  and works or surveyor general, and .Mr.  Perry was not so instructed.  (7).' 1 lie Gazette notice of the 7th of  September, 1S92. lifting the reserve of the  17th of March, 1892, tit the mouth of Carpenter creek, states as follows:  * * * "Any persons who have taken  the necessary legal stops to acquire by  purchase any portion of such laud so released from reserve will be permitted to  complete their purchase, upon complying  witli the further requirements of the  'Land Act.'"   *   *   *  (JS). I respectfully submit, Mr. McGillivary has failed to comply with the "Land  Act" in every particular.    I have, etc.,  A. S. Fa i< well.  GETTING   A   FOOTHOLD.  An  English Company Preparing to Expend  Large Sums in Legitimate Mining.  It may not generally be known the  amount of work being done and the extent of work proposed for (he coming  season by tho Loudon Mercantile Association, Limited, of London, England. The  syndicate is represented-' by Jowett 6c  Chadbourn, who act as tlieir agents in  British Columbia. They are now registered as a foreign conipany anel will do  business in their own name. Thus far all  property'acquired'by thein has been purchased- or bonded in the name of their  agents. .  The first acquisition was the Franklin  6c McGovern 'mining properties, situate  in the Slocan district, consisting of the  .Great Western and other claims. Work  has been pushed with great vigor on this  property, principally the .Great Western,  since August last. A tunnel has been run  on the vein about 300 feet, and together  with a short upper tunnel aud '.crosscuts'  make nearly 1U0 feet of underground  work. They have exposed a strong A'oin  of high-grade galena ore, varying from  eight to eighteen inches in width. The  oro has been left in -place as far as possible  by���extending' tho level on the side of the  ore. The vein lies between plumbaginous  slate for a foot wall and a-porphyry-dyke  as tlie hanging wall. Assays of the ore  range from 100 to 300 ounces silver. A  boarding house and other necessary buildings were erected last fall, antl a force of  six men have been 'pushing Avork all  winter. Work -wtis shut down on March  1st, but it is expected to - recommence  again about May 1st, when the snow will  have'disappeared, and there will be less  danger.from snow-slides..  They have purchased and bonded several, properties adjoining the Great Western, such as the Stormount,  Sadie, and  Northern Belle,  upon'which   Avork   will;  commence in the spring. '  Their second .purchase Avas the Read &  ���'Robertson, property in Four Mile camp,  live claims in all, and later the Grouse,  Packer, and Jenny Lind, adjoining claims,  were acquired. No Avork lias been done  ou these properties, but it is tho intention-'  of the company to work a large force of  men on them as soon as the weather will;  permit.  Tho surface shoAving on the Read &  Robertson is second to none in the Slocan  district. A strong vein of high-grade  galena ore crops out boldly for over 1000  feet. A general assay from samples taken  along the croppings the entire distance  gave 142 ounces silver. The property lies  on the ridge between Carpenter and Four  Mile creeks, extending toward Four Mile,  and will probably be worked from that  side. Mr. Chadbourn has just purchased  two more claims further down and adjoining, and has made locations of bottom  ground reaching (Ioavii to and across Four  Mile, and they have now seventeen claims  iii this group.  Mr. Jowett lately consummated a deal  at Vancouver wheieby he acquires the  Haslcins group, of mines in the Lardo district for the same company, and is now in  England to arrange for the development  of this -property on a large scale. The  property consists of ten or more claims,  and is considered the largest and richest  discovery yet made in that district.  Messrs. Jowett & Chadbourn have already expended over $2:3,000 for their  company in development work and lirst  payments^' whicli is but the commencement of their operations which must in  order to carry out tlieir already planned  work absorb a largo amount of capital.  NEW   DENVER   NOTES.  UNNECESSARILY   EXCITED.  The  Bonner's   Ferry  Route  Will  not  be  Discriminated Against.  The people of Bonner's Ferry fear that  the Columbia & Kootonay Steam Navigation Company will discriminate against  that town and the route down Kootonay  river and work for tho Columbia river and  Nelson route. They need not,be alarmed.  The .steamboat company does not build  boats to let them lie idle. Even if all the  traffic, freight a.s well as passenger, was  diverted by way of the Nelson route, the  .steamers now on the lake, namely the  'Nelson, Ainswortli, and Kaslo, could  handle it. If so, what use could <be.made  of the Spokane, Idaho, and the neAV boat  building at Bonner's Ferry? While Tiik  Tribunk is not the organ of the steamboat company, it can-state that the ser-  A*ice by the Bonner's -Ferry route/will be  up to the requirements of the traffic as  soon as the ice is out of the m-er, which  will be in about two weeks. The following is from the Bonner's Ferry Herald of  the 25th instant:  . ''The,Commercial Club had a very interesting meeting last Wednesday night  and transacted some very important, business.' Among other 'hings it arranged to  take steps to counteract the effect of the  work of captain Troup and others avIio  seek to divert travel troin its natural  channel by sending passengers around by  way of the Columbia river to Kaslo. It  was learned from gentlemen just from  Spokane that agents, presumably AvorIcing,-, in the interests of the Spokane &  Northern railway and the C. 6c K.S.N.  Co., Avero circulating reports that the  ���Kootenay route would not be open for a  month, and that when it was only one  steamer per Aveek would run, so that it  Avas represented that this route was  wholly unreliable. A committee, consisting of R. W. Hunnor, J. C. Callahan  and S. D. Tayler, Avas appointed-' to raise  I'unds'to secure the insertion of an advertisement in one of the Spokane papers to  keep the public 'posted as to the advantages and conditions of the Bonner's  Ferry-Kootenay river route."  SHORT   ITEMS   FROM   NAKUSP.  fore the smelters which he represents  drew their supply of lead ores from' the  Cumr d'Aleues principally, but that supply is now being greatly reduced owing to  the shutting down of several of the largest of the producing mines. The ores of  the Slocan Avill bo purchased i'roin  this time on, as they are the best ores obtainable for fluxing, OAving to the high  percentage of lead carried, one ton being  equal to a ton and a half of concentrates  from the Geeur d'Alene mines. As an instance: . j.Superintendent- Fisher of the  Freddie Leo recently took a careful sample'  of a 50-ton shipment. The sample gave a  return of 127 ounces silver and 79 per cent-  lead. No other country produces so uniformly high-grade ore. The smelter at  Great Falls and the one at Helena have  four stacks each,,and -a daily capacity of  about 250 tons. Tho same company has-a  1-stack smelter and a refinery at Chicago  OPENED   AT   LAST.  DISPUTES THE THIBUNE'S VIEWS  AS  TO  HOW TOAD   MOUNTAIN   GOT  ITS  UNPOETIC BUT DISTINCTIVE NAME.

Mann Brothers' teams have been kept  busy hauling, pre, machinery, and merchandise over the sleigh road to the head  of Slocan lake, and Hiigh Mann says he  Avill haul all freight until May 1st from  Nakusp to New Denver for two cents a  pound.  Jack Walsh is making preparations to  resume his forwarding business as soon as  the boats begin running. He is enlarging  his stables and warehouses. Both hotels  are also undergoing repairs, so as to bo  ready for the spring rush this way.  The building recently occupied by  Grant Thorburn is now occupied by Mr.  MoDougal.

On Sunday, January 20th, the steamer  Nelson ran through skim ice in the outlet,  and it took her just fifty-six days to make  the next through trip. On Sunday last  she steamed proudly up to the government wharf, followed at a safe distance  by the Kaslo and the Ainsworth. She  would never have got hero, however, had  not the business men of Kaslo and Nelson  hired men to cut the ice and help her  handle an ice-breaker in the shape of a  barge. The outlet should not have remained closed twenty-four hours, is the  general ..opinion of those who witnessed  the latter-day efforts made by the steamboats to get "through it. Next Avinter it  will be kept open, as an'order has already  be'en placed for a $85,000 steel steamer for  the local trade. It will bo owned by  Ivaslo and Nelson men avIio have faith in  their respective towns.  Until tiie ice is out of the .Kootonay  river, the Nelson will be run between  Kaslo anil Nelson. lettving Nelson at-9 a.  m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and at 7 p.m. on Saturdays, anil  Kaslo at S a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays,  Saturdays, and Sundays. The Ainsworth  will also be run between Kaslo and Nelson, leaving the .former place on Mondays,  ���Wednesday.., anil Fridays, and the latter  'place'on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.'' She will also be run to Lardo at  regular intervals.  On the Columbia river, the Lytton is  making three round trips a week with  some difficulty, owing to the low stage of  water. On her trip on Tuesday she had a  line out five times and then lauded- her  passengers at the foot of Tincup rapids*,  some two miles below the mouth of Kootenay river. She has not yet commenced  carrying freight, but brings between fifty  aiid sixty passengers on each trip.  The old reliable Columbia _c Koot may  raihvay is always on time, and its one  first-class coach is crowded three times a  week by men that expect to get rich in  the "gold fields on tho Duncan."  MINING   NEWS   CONCENTBATES.  A line piece.of oro was brought down to  Kaslo last Aveek from the Big Bertha,  wliich assay oil 2000 ounces silver to the  ton. The report from tho claim -was so  flattering that E. K. Coy and Henry  Smith, the-owners,-started up to inspect  their holdings.    The tun  id un ti  nol lias  be  on advanced 50 feet along the ledge during the  past month.  Ernest I larrup and Leo W. Parkinson  Iiavo commenced the summer's operations  on the Lincoln claim on Spring crook,  about ono mile from the wagon road,  Ktislo slope. The lodge is from three to  four feet wide and carries from 12 Lo IS  inches of pay oro, a number of assays  showing from 0A to 79 ounces silver, and  from 05 to 75 percent lead por ton. Quite  ti quantity of this ore is on the dump and  the vein has been stripped for a disuince  of -100 foot, showing a pay streak till the  way.  James Brady, superintendent of the  Thunder Mill mine, in Fust Kootenay.  writes that the mine is looking splendid  and that the concentrator will be in full  swing shortly. The unusual severity of  the winter has impeded progress.  The (iolden Hra of (he I Sth instant says  that between fifteen and twenty men are  employed on the North Star, a mine on  St. Mary's river, twenty-two miles west  of Fort Steele.

To the Editor of The Triijuxe:  Your  explanation of the causes Avhich led to the  naming of the-immense mountain which  is the home of the justly celebrated Silver  King and other great mines is of peculiar  interest to me, inasmuch as I'.'have, made  considerable inquiry as to why such *in  uncommon name as "Toad" was bestowed  on a mountain tlmt has become as famous  as the one in question.    Nearly four years  ago, when first in Nelson, it Avas explained  to me that professor Dawson, or some one  else; while exploring this country that  they ascended to a high elevation near tiie  mouth'of the outlet, and back of -.where  Nelson now stands  the group of   mountains -resembled in   shape a number   of  toads  and   on   the -map   or  chart they  marked   the  legend   "Toad   Mountains."  -lowever, in my opinion."T believe the following explanations,  which  I   obtained  ;i fterward  from  one of the Silver King  owners, is the correct one. The croppings  of the Silver King were found in the fall  of 1SSG.   Some of the ore was taken to  Colville, Avhere, -during the Avinter, tests  made proved the same to be valuable. The  summer of   1887,   when   the  Hall   party  started to return to the scene of the find  to make their locations, it was tlieir intention to follow the same route of the year  before, that is, up the Pend d'Oreille and  Little Salmon and   climb   up the south  slope  of   the   mountain.     Finding' they  were  followed,  they turned   back,  proceeded  to Spokane,   thence  to Bonner's  Ferry and down the river and lake in row  boats, landing at the present site of Nelson.     The ascent of   the mountain was  then made from the  north side.    While  toiling up the steep slopes they encountered hundreds of small toads, and from  that fact they designated the mountain  by that name.   When the party-reached  a point on the crook just below where the  Dandy' mine   is "located,'-' they   became  thoroughly exhausted and had to camp  for quite a'while to recover their strength,  hence the creek took tho name it bears  today,   "Giveout creek."   1 am  satisfied  that this latter theory is correct, and accounts for how a mountain and stream in  your rich district received their names.      R. II. Kemp.  [A colored man named Smith, who has  lived in Nelson for the last four years,  says he was with two survey -parties that  passed through this section in early days,  anil that while caiuped.ut the'mouth ot"  Pend d'Orielle river, twenty years ago, an  old prospector brought in specimens of  ore, which he claimed he found on a  mountain-up in.this neighborhood: but  that he never -heard the words. "Tout!  mountain" used either at that time or at  any time afterwards when with the  Dewdney survey party that built a.trail  to connect Kootenay lake with the Upper  Kooteiuiy country.���Editor Trihu'N'E.J  Development Work Advancing.  George W. Hughes, the freighter, was  in Nelson on Saturday. Askeil as to the  ore shipments from the mines in Slocan  district, he said that, had development  work in the mines been a.s far advanced  on January 1st a.s at this time, tho number  of tons .shipped would have corresponded  very nearly to the estimates made last  fall: as it is, however, the total tonnage is  a little short of the estimates. The Ktislo  road was in better condition this mouth  than at any time during the winter, .and  his teams easily, even now, bring full  loads to the wharf at Kaslo. Mr. Hughes  litis great faith in the future of tlie district, and is directly interested in mines  as well as freight outfits. Ho hasa claim  on Carpenter creek, the ore from which  gives assay returns of 120 ounces in silver  and SI per cent lead.  Our  Information Was Based   on a Fact.  When Till-: TlillH'NK stated that the  Silver King mine wtis sold, the statement  was discredited by the knowing ones who  believed they had inside information.  But thi! knowing ones did not know that  Marry Young, who bought .lake Co-  baugh's interest in that great mine iu  ISill, had not only received his share of  the purchase money, but had invested it  iu a business enterprise tit Colville, an  enterprise the carrying on of which requires largo capital. Mr. Voung.a staunch  Democrat, has purchased and is running  the Colville Republican. No sensible man  will now say that the Silver King is not  sold. *   Legally Incorporated.  The South Kootonay Board of Trade i.s  now a legal body, the certificate of incorporation having been received from Ottawa. As the name indicates, it covers  the whole of South Kootenay. Its first  secretary is George A. Bigelow. merchant,  Nelson. The charter members will elect  the other ollicers on April 15th.  Out of Supplies.  Work has been suspended on all the  mines iu Trail Creek district except the  O.K. gold claim on Sheep creek. The reason given therefor by l_. S. Topping, who  came up to Nelson on Tuesday, is a hick  of supplies. Work will be resumed as  soon as the trails are free from snow,  which will be in about a mouth.  il  k4_3  U__.i  RE THE'TRIBUNE:   NELSON, B.C, THURSDAY   MARCH  30,  1803.

'   TIIURSOAY   MOItNING .MARCH 'A0.  1893  THE   REDISTRIBUTION   OP   SEATS.  The govonnii-iifc intends to increase the  number of members in tho legislative assembly ami redistribute the seats.   That  it will he done on a fair basis is not to be  expected,   .for   no  matter  what man or  party is in power,  the  retention of the  man or party in power i.s the point that i.s  alone considered.    Thk  Tkij.un'K lias no  other data  than   that  furnished  by tlie  report of the auditor-general of Canada.  In that report  the cost of revising  tho  Dominion   voters'  lists  is given, and according   to  it judge   Harrison  was paid  $0(5.24    for    placing. .73(3   names   on   the  Cariboo list,   whicli   indicates   that   the  provincial'districts of Cariboo and  Lillooet have 7A0 voters; yet they have, and  will have, live members in the assembly,  or   one    for    every    147    voters.   Judge  Walkem was paid $-1 _.).*]-_. for placing 5324  names on   the Yale list,  which goes to  show   that   the   provincial    districts   of  Yale. East ���Kootenay, and   West Kootenay have n".2*i voters'; yet they now have  but 5 members in the assembly, and under the new tirrangeniont "will have but (3,  or one for every 889 voters.    Why should  147 voters in Cariboo and Lillooet have as  much power in the assembly as 889 voters  in Yale. East Kootenay, and West lvootenay**1   The Vancouver World can give a  good answer, no doubt.  NOT REQUIRED TO REDEEM IN GOLD.  '���Thk Ti.huwk is away off '.when it  " says we are by law required to redeem  '���our bills in gold," remarked a local  bank manager one day this week. "We  '��� are only .required to redeem them in  " lawful money of Canada, and lawful  " money is the bills issued by the Donii-  '��� ii ion, of which we have a large amount  " right there in that safe, an amount suf-  '��� ficiently large to redeem all of our bills  " you can get a hold of."  We have no reason Lo dispute tlie statement made by the bank manager, for he,  ��� no doubt, knew what he was talking  about: but we have since wondered why  the necessity of this roundabout way of  issuing money. If the banks must redeem their paper money with the paper  money issued Iiy the Dominion, why  would it not be as well for the Dominion  paper mo icy to bo put in actual circulation instead of being kept as a sort of redeemer in the vaults ol* chartered banks?  Then, again, what does the Dominion redeem its paper money withy With the  bills of the chartered banks? There does  not appear to be much else in the country  in the way of .money.  'TliK Toronto ('lobe's commissioners who  have been traversing Ontario for the last  two months to ascertain the feeling of the  people on trade and other questions sum  up the result of their inquiries as follows:  '��� Public opinion elicited during the in-  " quiry calls I'or an immediate reduction  "of the tariff and tis wide a measure of  " reciprocity with the United .States as  '��� can be obtained, as soon as possible, and  -��� to    include   manufactures   as   well   as J  " natural products. Jn some localities  " there is a considerable feeling forannex-  " ation, but a reasonable reduction of the  " tariff and a measure of reciprocity with  " the United States would dispel most of  ���' it in a night. Imperial federation has  " no foothold outside of the large .towns'.  " Independence has a fair following, which  ���'would be larger..still were its admirers  " confident as to Canada's ability to main-  " tain the autonomy of the new nation-  "ality."           Onk of the arguments used by the Ontario press against tho tariff is that if it  was removed the patent medicine manufacturers of the United States and Great  Britain would spend large sums in advertising   to   create    a   market    for    their  nostrums.    If a further raise in the duty  would prohibit the sale of foreign patent  medicines in Canada, the raise should be  made at once, even  if it killed half tlie  country papers in Canada.    A newspaper  that will print patent medicine advertisements has ho right to live.  TliK exchequer court of the Dominion  has rendered a decision in the Revelstoke  townsite ease. A. S. Far well i.s declared  not entitled to the land. The Provincial  government will now probably give Mr.  Farwell the New Denver townsite iu compensation for hi.s loss at Revelstoke.  Such things have been done in the past,  some of the land so acquired not being  distant more than twenty miles from  Nelson. O, for a '���government of the  people, by tlie people, for the people!"  THE   SHAME   OF   IT.  Is Just as True of Canada as  of the United  States.  Salt Lake Tribune:    " What a sluune it  i.s that in a country upon which the world  in a great .'part depends  for  food,  upon  which the looms of the world depend for  cotton, to Which from three to five hundred thousand of the world's poor come  every year to make homes, the iron mines  of whicli produce more iron annually than  any country ever produced,  the copper  mines of which supply the world  with  copper, the gold and sil ver mines of which  furnish annually $80,(XX),(XX), with (iO.OOO,-  000 of people, all alert,_ all at work, with  no army to support, with no great navy  to   support,   .with   new   fields   awaiting  hands to till them, with new mines to be  opened, with new roads and  cities and  bridges to be built, Avhat a shame it is  that such a nation,  so equipped, and so  blessed, with'such a mighty aggregate of  wealth   already gathered  together, and  with   such    immeasurable    resources   to  draw upon, what a shame it is that there  should  be fears   of   a    panic!    What   a  double  shame   it is  that,  standing like  birds   of   ill-omen,   the  great   financial  houses of our eastern cities croak every  flay to the people that we must not think  of having an independent financial policy  of our  own,   but  must  take our  lessons  from the old world and must accept such  a policy as they  may  dictate  to  us.    It  would look to the average man as though,  by  the situation of our country,  the intention was for our people to bo an entirely     independent   people.    That   the  thought was to put in our hands ample  'means to build up a nation, which should  be   the   foremost of  modern  or ancient  times, and that the concerns of petty outside states should not  be our concern at  all, but that'our government in its sovereign 'capacity should decree   what should  be   money,  and   having so  decreed,   the  people should accept it and goon following those lines and work out our own salvation.    Half a panic has been created by  the harpies who are money  changers in  the eastern cities, over the fear that the  treasury   reserve    fund    would    be   exhausted.    We    are    not   all    sure   that  that Avould not be the very best thing that  could come.    The bugbear of the terrible  something which would succeed iu case a  little more gold should   be shipped away,  is ti coyote cry.   The bankers have tried  to make us believe that the woods a re fill I  of perils, and could we butonce know that  that reserve, was exhausted, we then would  realize that.still the country was left, the  mines were left, the fields  were left, the  people wore left, and that 1MK) out of every  KXX) of them would have Justus much gold  as they have had for the last thirty years.  The great question  is, how can  the government and   the people extricate themselves from the grip of those bankers in  the east, who are pursuing their vocation  now precisely as the money changers iu  the Temple did, whose manipulations oven  tlie Savior of the world could  not stand,  but who. in  righteous indignation, took  the whip of cords and  drove the whole  brood of thein outi of the Temple. Of  course it is easy to say that money rules  the world and that the business men of  tlie whole nation depend upon tho great  banking houses of the east for the lubricating iluifl to keep cool the boxes of business. That in one sense i.s true, but when  those men who have that power deliberately insist that half of all the legitimate  money of the world shall be "destroyed as  money, then it is time for the people  to rebel, because to business it is just exactly such a decree as though the sovereign power of the country were to decree, and had the power to enforce bhe decree, that from this date every man,  woman and child would be compelled to  live on half rations. It would make, of  course, a nation of skeletons, and that is  what the bankers are doing with business.  They are making a. nation of skeleton business houses, and the sooner their reign  sliall be broken the better. Tiie thing  necessary to break that reign is to awake  tlie manhood of the people and to cause  them to make their demands through the  ballot box, for that kind of a. demand no  power on earth can resist.  mm  (NOTAKV   I'l'IIMC.)

"Lucky" Baldwin is the Tom Oohilln.o  of Sim KYiui.isw.. lit- lms till the breezy  grandiloquence. >f the great Texan ronian-  eerand more than tlie Ocliiltreetin'.sweep  of nnjigination.    But he is far more than  ��� air.Oehiltree. He is, iii his line, an uncommonly good business man; he is owner ol  a fine ranch near Los Angeles, oi. tht  J.aldwin hotel in San Francisco, and some  of the fastest Iioi-.es on the Pacific slope.  .He is full of reminiscences.  At first one would say that no mai  could have had so many adventures, but  ic must be remembered .that "Lucky"  was a man���or'nearly so���iu Wisconsin  when gold was discovered in California;  that lie crossed the plains in the good old  -way in 1852, when Indians and bulTjiloes  -wore': plenty anel .-the-Mormons in Utah  none'too friendly, when the trains were  ' liable to" miss the water, and things in  general were in a very unsettled state.  And it was in 'that year that he had the  adventure which ho often.tells of, and in  these words:  ''In those days," says'. Mr. . Baldwin,  ���"the   country  swarmed   witli  buffaloes.  ��� anel on Laramie 'plains'-we had a-greal  lmnt. J singled out a fat calf, shot it  clown, and without thinking leaped from  iny horse to cut its throat. Suddenly, the  horde Of buffaloes were moving down on  me. Death stared me in the face. In an  instant their hot breath was in my face.  A gigantic bull was almost on me. .1  Avatched his every movement, and a  thought dawned on nie. Just as he  reached me with his big horns down and  his eyes glaring 1 slipped, aside, buried  my hands in his shaggy mane and leaped  upon his back.  '���The buffaloes ran as only such animals  can run. Before me were thousands upon  thousands. To my right and left were  * myriads, and in my rear was-a following  flood of them farther than the eye could  reach.  "How I escaped tlieir horns, even alter  I got on the bull's back, and through the  inadrideT do not know. They cracked  and rattled all' around me. Their snorting and roaring sounded, with the cash  of their sharp horns, like tlie war of the  battlefield.  '-My hat came off, and I lost it. for  1 had enough to do to hold on to my  strange steed, who was all the time going  in the mad phalanx like a house afire. 1  must have ridden iu this way at least five  miles. My companions were til I longsince  obscured.i'roin view. What my thoughts  were no one could imagine 1 kept liguring  how I - ecru Id get off and out of the midst,  , of :the great band.  "Finally we came to a little creek,  which the buffaloes had to ford. By this  time my buffalo had-begun t.o get tired  carrying me, and he got pretty well to  tlie rear. Just tis .he got .to the edge of  the creek I got behind and slipped off, and  he plunged in and went on.  "My liat I never got. It took a good  dealof searching to secure my horse, a-nd  as long as I wa'si.i the train. 1 never heard  the last of my buffalo ride. Some of thein  made some pictures and caricatured me  riding on the shaggy beast, and they had  a lot of fun out of it for a long time.  "The ride, strange and dangerous as it  was, didn't hurt me any. At that time I  was but 2A years old, aud I was exceedingly strong and supple and could do  most anything.  "Now. I suppose there will be some pot -  pie who won't believe this story--say it's  too  big to   l.e true but John Mcllenry,  my wathcinan here, will tell you and  everybody that it is. lie was in the train  at tlie time. That's where I lirst met hini.  I'm a poor hand to renieinljei" names, but  I do not doubt there are yet many others  scattered up and down the I'aeilie coast  who were in the train at the time and  will testify to the truth of my singular  experience."  That   is   Eelieved   "Will   Open   up   a   Country-  Rich   In   Minerals.  Not many people realize that while the  old world is jogging on iu its old way the  l.ussiiins tire steadily pushing a railway  from St. Petersburg to the Pacific.    Tha4  it is to be til most twice as long tis the road  from San   Francisco to New York.    That  already the Russian papers are advocating the building of steamships to be put  on theline between Vladivostok via.Japan  to San  Francisco, and  that till this is in-  rendod  to be finished  within five years,  and  that when  finished  it will open all  .astern Siberia to American enterprise, if  the Americans plea-se  to embrace tho opportunity.    The belief is that Siberia is  ibout the richest mineral country in till  this round world.    It shows what a* nation  Russia is slowly becoming, howawful will  soon be its power, how commanding its  place in the old world, for iu point of .fact  it possesses under its flag one-fifth of the  solitl land  of this earth.    With the completion of,that road, commerce will have  to  take ti new .direction, trade will find  many a,new rendezvous.   It will be to the  eastern  continent   what  the   building of  our first railroad to the Pacific was to this  continent.    It   will   the  more, distinctly  make  apparent the  fact,  that   after-all  there tire but two real 'nations' iu  the  world, one the free republic on our side,  the other the absolute despotism of the  white czar on the other side of the sea.  The range of the world from the beginning  has been to go west.    The Chaldeans and  Inter the Saracens pushed their way out to  the Hellespont.   'While' Rome in fighting  the surrounding powers obtained strong  footholds in the east, still her favorite field  for conquest was west and north.'   There  has been asteady pushing back against the  wilderness of the west the civilization of  North America until it has reached  the  sea,  and   we sometimes  think  with   the  completion of the-Siberian'road the exodus will continue.    It is not much to go  to Alaska now, and Alaska- is about as far  west from San Fmneisco on our western  coast   as   New   York  is east.    Reaching  Alaska and-bending a little to the south  and east, it will   not be  much  to reach  .this eastern terminus of the road, and it  may  be a  redemption   for the  hinds of  Asia, which once supported a great civilization,  but from   wliich   everything  like  civilization, except   its   vices.   long since  departed.    It may  be   that  the  redemption of that country is nl so'to come from  the west.    Our people do not half realize  tlie place they occupy in the world, or the  work that is before;  them for the future,  but it looks to us as though one hundred  years  hence our. country  will   lie about  what   (ireat   Britain   was   two   hundred  years ago,   the anchor  of civilization in  ihe world,  the  nlaco of order and  progress, when   half the. rest of  the  world  will seem to be goiiig'back to barbarism.  When tin. Dominion shall   fall   into  line  aud become part of our republic,   when  the railroad .across   the  Russian  empire  shall   be' completed,   then   the    interest  which centers now in the navigation  of  the.   Atlantic   will   be diverted   aud   the  commerce of the Pacific take on new proportions, and the vision of what will  be.  ought alone to be sufficient to cause every  man in authority in the United States to  determine that, not to accept Hawaii on  the present offer, would  not only be poor  statesmanship, but it would carry on its  lace ti strong evidence of imbecility.  To Gauge a River's Breadth.  Anybody can measure;, approximately,  the breadth of a river withouta surveyor's  compass or any mechanical means whatever. The man who desires to make the  experiment should place himself at the  edge of the stream, then stand perfectly  still, face the opposite bank and lower Lhe  brim of his hat until it just cuts the opposite bank. Then let him put both hands  under his chin, to steady his head, a-nd  turn slowly round until tho hat brim cuts  some point on tlie level ground behind  him. .Mark the; snot where the hat brim  cuts'the ground, then puce off the distance!  and it will he found about the breadth of  the river.  ��,.-.  ...... l-hii-uu  _..  u.. ... i._-��_  _/ ue_ ii -'i;' .*.  e, and the Walker stock wa.s entirely  cl out.     Tints were Mrs. Jchiol Fitch'.-.  Life Work of Marrying Widowers  Rearing their Children.  By her sixth marriage the widow Gtid-  des, of Norwich, Pennsylvania, as she  has been 'known for five years past, became the stepmother of forty-seven children, the step-grandmother of fifty-two,  the step-great-grandniothor of eleven,  aud the step-gretit-great-grandmother of  four.,  The widow Gaddes was born Barnes.  Her first husband wa.s George Walker, a  widower with five children, all of whom  she continued to care for after her husband died, and she in time became the  wife of George Ottender, who was also a  widower, lie had six children, to whom  slie became a second mother. When she  became the widow Ottender, which she  did in less than a. year, tiie,.five Walker  children and the six young Ottcnders continued living with'her in peace and harmony, whicli was. uot disturbed.wheii the  widow Ottender became the wife of  Charles Gregg and a mother to his nine  motherless children.  A good many of the children of these  different families had grown to be men  and -women by this time, and, when four  years after she became .lie wife - of  Charles Gregg she became his' widow, sev-  evoral of them liad married and started  families of their own���some of the Walkers marrying Ottenders anel some of the  Greggs marrying both Walkers nnd Ottenders���so that when the widow Gregg  became Mrs. Jehiel Fitch her husbands  seven, children found only one of the  \Vali_or offspring, three Ottenders and  five Greggs claiming a share of the attention of tneir new mother.  In course of time the Fitch contingent  of stepchildren was reduced by-marriage  until t here were only three or them left  as a charge in the family, and by these  marriages the number of unclaimed  Greggs was reducedto two, the Ottenders  to one.  -wipec  family cares made so light that she felt  unbearably lonesome when she at last became the widow Fitch���so lonesome, indeed, that in less than a year she ceased  being the widow Fitch a-nd became Mrs.  Solomon Gaddes and the willing stepmother of Solomon Gaddes's seven children. The o.dest of these was fifteen, the  youngest two, and as Mrs. Gaddes was  now lifty aud her latest husband ten  years her junior she had virtually started  in to raise another entire family. This  became a literal fact, for in less than a  year she was the widow Gaddes, with the  whole seven of the new .stepchildren, tlie  oldest not old enough to support herself,  on her hands.  She kept them together, but two of  them having married and gone'away recently���nearly six years having passed'  since there became a widow Gaddes���anil  the last one of the Greggs, the Ottenders,  and Fitches having also set up homes of  tlieir own, the widow Gaddes felt so lonesome again that she took it as a providential intervention when John C. Callan  asked her to take charge' of him and become stepmother to his thirteen children,  although she regretted that only three of  these were to come under her "maternal  protection, and each one-was older than  herself.  Her new husband is twenty-five years  her senior. Although he brings her no  young children, as-all of her other husbands did, she consoles herself with the  reflection that he has thirty grandchildren, many of them sina 1, eleven greatgrandchildren, and four great-greatgrandchildren, some of whom circumstances may throw upon her .personal  care.  Mrs. Callan. with all her husbands, litis  never had a child of her own, but thirty  of her stepchildren grew up under her  care. Only one child died among till the  five; families she reared. The first time  she married slit; lived on a farm sins  owned, but moved from it to her husband's. The next marriage took' her  from that farm to her second husband's,  and so on. each marriage removing her to  ti new farm, the whole; live of which she  now owns.  A Good and Feasible Scheme.  An'old bachelor handed Tiik Titihi'.vi.  the following paragraph for publication,  remarking tis he did so that it would be a  good plan to adopt to raise money with  wliich to commence operations on the  Nelson-hospital: "Down in Missouri they  have introduced hugging societies to  swell the church treasury, and a .Missouri paper gives the following scale of  prices: Girls under Hi, 15c for a hug of  two minutes or a short squeeze; from hi  to 20,50c: from 20 to25, 75c; school marnis,  10c; another man's wife, $1: widows, according to looks, from |()c to ���$���*; old  maids, '.<���, or two for a nickel, and not  any limit to time.

Does he road Stit-  urday newspapers, published on the "Sabbath" of the Ton Command men ts?   Cook,  and men like him, are really annoyed because sensible people prefer to read newspapers rather than to listen to the dreary  or turgid commonplaces wliich, in their  ���vocabulary, are miscalled "religion." Dullness, egotism, and hypocrisy have every  chance of wordly success now-a-days, provided they cloak their ugly existence with  the mantie of "religion."  ���WEST   KOOTENAY   DISTRICT.

The New Brunswick contingent in Nelson is almost as large and influential as  tlie 'colony from England. It had an addition this week by the arrival of��� L. R.  Harrison, a lawyer from St. John.  Captain George Hay ward is now navigating the steamer Nelson, and to see  him on Nelsou's thronged streets brings  us back to the days when the little  steamer Galena was the only one that  came and went from the old log float tlmt  cost so much time aiid money to keep in  repair. .'Somehow, iii them days, the  newspaper).-and the .'steamboatmen were  on much better terms than in these days  of palatial "steamboats and high-salaried  general office rs. '���-.'.;',.  Thomas Kemp, ij-.pioneer of all the great  mining camps of the ..far west for many  years, could not withstand the Slocan excitement, so leaving his family on his fine  farm near Osborn, in the Cceur d'Alene  country, he has come to Kaslo and is  engaged in sizing 'tip the situation and  meeting many old-time acquaintances.  Kaslo is the first town in the Kootenay  Lake country to have within its borders  any females from the Orient. Two Japanese "girls" arrived on Tuesday of. last ���  week, and, it is said, intend to become  permanent residents of that wicked city.  The plant for ''The Claim," the new  paper at Ktislo, is now at Bonner's Ferry,  and will-be shipped-to its destination on  the first boat. This new candidate for  public .favor will be a (.-column 8-page  patent inside sheet. R. T. Lowery, the  business manager, is now taking orders  for advertising. Who the editor will be  is not yet announced. The paper will be  issued'very soon after the plant arrives.  A Kaslo hotelkeeper feared that some  one was stealing his wood during the still  hours of the' night, therefore he bored  holes in a few sticks and filled them with  ���giant powder. Happening by mistake to  putone of the sticks in hi.s own stove itex-  ploded with terrific force. A piece weighing seventeen pounds struck a real estate  man on the cheek, glanced, went through  the side of the building, and buried itself  two feet in the ground. The r. e. m. was  not hurt.  A genuine real estate craze took possession of Kaslo about ten days a, ���), and held  unabated sway up until last accounts.  The 100-odd realty agents were kept on  the hop, ski]), and jump pursuing the  would-be purchaser and using every endeavor to control the nimble dollar.  Golden Era, 18th: "Durick 6c Warren  have dissolved partnership. James C.  Durick retires from commercial life and  ���contemplates starting a ranch. Charles  Warren will carry ou business in his own  name."  Mrs. Robert Jackson is still in Spokane  and in poor health. Meanwhile the energetic "Bob" keeps pounding away at the  fast-becoming noted Northern Belle mine  on Jackson'creek, Slocan district, wliich  is sure to bring this nervy and deserving  couple a life competency and comfortable  fortune.  "Jap" King, who has done more hard  rustling in the Slocan district than anybody and has spout two winters there,  came down to Ivaslo on Sunday's stage  for ti little rest and -recreation. "Jap"  says he reads TliK Ti.iiii.ni_ more studiously than he does his bible, and though  isohitcd through the winter at the Idaho  mine, he litis kept posted on current  events.  George N. Taylor, an architect, has  opened tin oflice in Nelson, on Josephine  street. He comes from Whatcon, and is  said to be both experienced and capable.  Rev. D. M. Martin of Kaslo, who recently visited Nelson, states that he never  sojourned in a. place for tt few days where  he   received .'.more   kind  and  hospitable  treatment than that at the hands of Nel-.  son people.   ,He i.s now a more enthusiastic admirer of the city oil the outlet and  its inhabitants than ever before.  Press Woodruff is back again iu -Kaslo  visiting his "brother Bill.";. He says  "Bill" is stuffing mattresses with baled  hay and palming them oil' oil the public  tis excelsior,-"also that ;'brother Bill" had  to shave off his whiskers to finish a job  when the supply of ���-hay ran short.-  The Great .Northern hotel at Lardo,  owned by Fletcher 6c Taylor, is about  completed, and will be ready for guests  on or about the,5th of April. The building is 2_x(50, three stories high. It is  probable that Mr. Taylor will be, the  landlord at the start.  Bonner's Ferry Herald, 25th: "The case  of E. S. Williams against the steamer Nelson for breaking a log boom has been  compromised.. The Nelson pays Mr. Williams $250 damages for the loss of logs."  The Bonner's Ferry Herald of the 25th  instant says ���Sam Smith, the stage man, is  again around on two feet. He had been  using crutches since the time he was  thrown against a tree when driving a  stage from the Ferry to the steamboat  landing on Kootenay lake. * .  On Sunday, general Sam Green and hi.s  Kaslo brigade, armed with crosscut saws,  forced the outlet, and laid siege to and  captured Nelson. On Monday they looted  the warehouses and returned to the  mountain fastnesses of the Kaslo-Slocan  district laden with thirty tons of wet  goods, principally Hudson Bay rum and  Gooderham <_c AVorts "8-year-old."  John  F.  Ward and Charlie Lundberg,  two old-time residents of Nelson, dropped  down on Sunday from Kaslo, where tliey  are now limiting money. Neither expressed surprise at the wonderful progress made in Nelson during the winter.
