 c^Uh)jj��o  East anfe West 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.  FIRST  YEAR.-NO.  i  NELSON, BRITTSH   COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  MARCH   23,   1893.  PRICE  TEN  CENTS.  A FEW HISTORICAL FACTS ABOUT  MINING     DISTRICT   THAT    BEARS    A  NAME    NOT    AT    ALL    POETICAL.  The Name tho Result of a Trifling Incident  that Occurred When Two Prospectors were  Engaged in Staking a Mineral Claim Called the '.'Jim Crow."  A short time ago the Spokane Review,  in an article on Toad Mountain .district,  said that the district took its name from  a mountain or pea.k that in contour resembled a toad. The Tiiii.uni. has taken  some trouble to find out when and why  the district was named "Toad" Mountain  ���and has arrived at the conclusion 'that the  Review is wrong.  While placer miners have i'or years  prospected and worked on the creeks that  head in the range of mountains now called  Toad'Mountain, no distinctive name was  given to them, for had one been given the  prospectors for quart7', that came afterwards would surolyihave heard oI: it, and  when making locations would stale them  as being on, or near, such and such a  mountain.  The lirst location made on what is now  called Toad mountain was dated July Oth,  1SS7. The location wa.s called the Kootenai ..Bonanza, and its locators were  Thomas Hall, William White, and William J. Oakes. It is described as being  ''situate on the divide between the heads  of Cottonwood t-inith and Salmon creeks,  about ten miles south of Kootenai outlet."  The location notice of the Silver King was  also dated July (Jth. as was the American  .Flag. These three locations were all made  by the Hall party, and all these are described as being on the divide between  Cottonwood Smith and Salmon creeks,  about ten iniles south of Kootenai outlet.  The next locations recorded were the Grizzly JBear, Carriboo, Give Out, Dandy,  Union Jack, anil -Forest. These claims are  described much the same as the Kootenai  Bonanza.and Silver King, and none as being on a mountain.  On July 27th, .1887, Ben Thomas and  Charlie Townsend located a claim called  the ������Jim Crow."' It is described as being  "situate on the west.side of Giveoutcreek,  ou Toad ..mountain, and about li miles  from the Silver King mineral claim." On  the 20th of the same month, these same  men staked another claim, wliich they  named, the "Jrii|uois." This claim they  described as being ������situate iu the Kootenay lake district, on Kootenay mountain,  about one-half mile southwest from the  Silver King."  Ben Thomas, who is now in Nelson, says  that when Townsend and himself were  staking the Jim Crow���Townsend writing  the notice and he making the stake on  whicli to place the notice ��� Townsend  asked him, "What name shall 1 write in  this notice?" and that he replied, "O, call  it the Jim Crow, as 1 don't think it is  worth a blank anyway." Townsend was  sitting on.a log that was about a foot  from tlie ground, and when he had written the notice as far as the words ���'���situate  on," a big, warty toad .jumped from under  the log so close to his feet that he could  not uot help seeing it, and the word"on"  was followed by the words "Toad mountain."' Other old timers, like Dr. La Ban,  say that their impression is that the  mountain on one of the slopes of wliich  the Jim Crow is located derived its name  from some such incident as related by  Mr. Thomas; alsov that the-mountain on  which the Silver King is situate never had  any distinctive name. Jim Fox of the  Dandy mine, who is also in Nelson, says  that lie was present when the first .stake  was planted on the Kootenai Bonanza,  and that the name "Toad".as designating  any particular mountain was lirst used by  Charlie Townsend, he incident as described above being the occasion. Mr.  Fox aUo says that "Delia" Fry acted as  mining recorder in the district during the  fall and winter of 1887-8 and up to the arrival of Mr. Anderson, lie also says that  Mr. Fry would not record assessment  work, believing that he had not the power  to do so. Claim owners, therefore, had to  make the records at Fort Steele or at Revelstoke, several of the assessments being  recorded at both places.  The next locations made were tlie New  Market, Silver Queen, Ox Bow, Immense,  Nipcoo, Bright Star, Irish Nell, Black  Bear, Mother Lode, Wild Maid of the  Forest, Lebanon, Crown, Shamrock, Silver Star, hJvening, and Morning. All these  claims are described as being such and  such a distance from the Silver King and  from live to ten miles south of the outlet  ���the distance from the outlet evidently  growing less as tlie trail became better.  No one of them i.s described as being on a  mountain.  On October loth Thomas (better known  as "Sandy") Morrow recorded the Tough-  nut claim, and described it as being "situate about four miles west oi Bonanza  camp, Mineral mountain, in Kootenai  mining district, B. C." This is the first  location in which "Mineral" mountain is  mentioned. Tlie other locations made  that year were the Chicamiu Stone, Terror of the Woods, Copper Queen, and  Water Jacket, none of which were described as .beingon a mountain, but always  as being so far from some other claim, or  from "Bonanza camp."  On March 1st, J8S8, N. Hoover and  James McKenzie located the Porcupine  claim, and described it as being "situate  2_ miles in a westerly direction' from the  Silver King mineral claim, Mineral mountain, Kootenay mining district, B.C." A  number of other locations were recorded  in March of that year, and all  were des  cribed as b'sing situate ou Mineral mountain. 'On May 7th, P. J. McDougal recorded the Poorman, find described it as  being "situate on the west side of Mineral  mountain." All the claims mentioned  above as being located in I8S7, were either  relocated or rerecorded in 1888, and all  wore described as being on Mineral mountain,���even the Jim Crow anrl Jriquois  were so described, it may be stated here  that in .1887, all the records were made at  Revelstoke, there being no mining recorder in the Kootenay Lake district; but  in the winter of 1888, J lenry Anderson was  appointed mining recorder for the district, and arrived on the ground in April  or May of that year. Evidently he favored tiie name Mineral mountain, as all  tho records made that year of locations in  the Silver King neighborhood wero described as being situate on Mineral mountain. Mr. Anderson also gave the name  "Salisbury" to tho embryo town on the  outlet, now known as Nelson; but ou gold  commissioner Sproat's arrival, the bamo  was changed to "Stanley" by his direction. It is also stated that Mr. Sproat insisted on calling the district "Toad Mountain." AII through 1888 there was little  unanimity of action between the mining  recorder and the gold commissioner, and  in the winter of 1888-9 charges were filed  against die latter, and his resignation  was accepted by the government.  The mountain to the northeast of Cottonwood-Smith creek, on which the first  location was made by "William McCor-  mick on May 22nd, 1888, was called Granite  mountain. Locations were also made  that year in the immediate neighborhood  of what'was then called "Trout" lake,  but now'known as "Cottonwood" lake,  and tho mountain ou which they were  situate was called Gold Hill.  On March 21st, 1889, E. S. Topping recorded theOllie, which .is the lirst westerly extension of the Dand.y, aud described it as being situate'oii Toad mountain. Mi1. Topping was then acting: a.s  mining recorder, in the absence of Mr.  Anderson. From that time on all claims  recorded were described a.s being situate  on Toad mountain.  The names of those who recorded claims  in 1887 were Thomas Hall, William White.  William J. Oakes, Winslow flail. Osner  Hail, Charles Hall. William Miller, Oscar  Hall, John Hall, Ll. A. Fry, A. C. Fry,  Osner AI. Oakes, James Fox, Michael  Keeley, John Ii. Cook, Charles AI. Town-  send. Benjamin Thomas, Price Ale-Donald,  S. H. Cross, O. IL Bandall, Isaac Loug-  hoed, William Hanson, C. II.

In the six years that have elapsed since  the Halls discovered thegrc-itSilver King  mine nearly .'500 locations have'been recorded in what was once officially designated as Toad Mountain district. The  district is now called "Nelson Alining  Division of West Kootenay district."  TROUP'S   CUSSEDNBSS.  ANOTHER   "PRAYER"   REFUSED.  Not Because it was an Unfair One, but Because it Did not Suit Mr. Mara.  Last winter, when the people had nothing else to do, a public meeting was held  at Nelson to consider ways anil means to  advance the town's interests. One of the  ways suggested was making Nelson a customs port of entry, as the district was  without one. The means to get it was  left to a committee, of which Frank  Fletcher was chairman. Tiie committee  drafted a petition, which was numerously  signed, and sent it to ALr. Mara, our member at Ottawa, with instructions to lay it  before the proper official of the Dominion  government. The following letters are in  answer to that petition, anil go to si-ow  that, no matter what the "prayer" made  by tlie people of 'West Kootenay to the  Dominion authorities, it will be 'ignored,  is this because the Dominion government  is run by a lot of pig-headed officials, or  is it because our member, John Andrew  Alara, while presenting our claims whispers behind his -hand, "Don't grant it?"

News reached Kaslo on Saturday Inst  that the .Lucky Alike claim on Twelve-  AJHe creek, on the Kaslo slope, had been  sold in .Spokane to Halt Lake parties for  $12,000. Tommy Road ley passed through  Nelson on Tuesday for Spokane to secure  the cash and collateral. In tho meantime,  Alike Shick, the discoverer and heavy  owner in the claim, remains at Ktislo, the  envy of less fortunate prospectors. Alike  having in one day made the delightful  change from being an unknown toiler to  the dizzy heights of the aflluence which  capital brings.  Another Fool from Kootenay.  The following opinions were uttered  by ti foolish man in the Driard hotel. Victoria, recently, and are, of course, gulped  down as gospel truths by all the newspapers in the Province tl'iat favor closing  all transportation routes to the south:  "As the season for the genera opening of  the Kootenay country draws near it becomes more apparent tlmt Spokane will  have a monopoly of the trade. The peculiar location of Spokane makes it naturally the outlet of the country, and il  is aided by a fairly good development of  transportation facilities, which are to be  made infinitely better. These conditions  will not change until the Canadian I'aeilie  Kail way taps the country. This is promised in the summer, when they assure us  they will build from Crow's Nest Pass."  How the  Mano-cer of the  C. '& K. N. Co. Discriminates Against Us.  There is one transportation  ollicial in  this country that is the bitter and unrelenting foe ot Bonner's Kerry,    liis name  i.s J. W. Troupe, anrl he i.s the manager of  the   Columbia   6c  Kootenay   Navigation  Company's steamers on the Columbia and  Kootenay rivers.    This man has worked  systematically for tho past year against  Bonner's   Kerry and   the  Kootenay river  route and favored the Columbia.    Many a  paid  interview has he   hail  inserted   in  Spokane  papers' favoring  the Columbia  route as against the Kootenay, and yet  this individual will ask the businessmen  of Bonner's Kerry to give their business to  the steamers Spokane and  Nelson next  season.    Let us say that they tire  fools  and unpatriotic if they do it.   Lastspring  Troup was going to divert all travel to the  Columbia and   up   to   Nakusp   into  tlie  Slocan, shutting off Bonner's Ferry, Nelson, and all lake towns from the line of  travel.    Ho was going to have stages running from Nakusp into the mines at once.  "Well, Jim   Ward iter's  pack  mules never  succeeded in finding a safe trail by that  route yet.   But Troup succeeded  iu attracting travel around by the Columbia.  This spring Troup had posters stuck up in  Spokane saying that tho Columbia'river  would be open on the 1st of Alarch.    Well,  this is  the ISth and   it is not open  yet.  This was to delay travel and take it up  the Columbia.���anything to keep passengers from passing through Bonner's Kerry.  Of course captain Troup has a right to do  this if he likes,  but When he does,  he  works against the interests of this town.  Something should be done to counteract  it, and retaliation in the way of a boycott  should follow if captain Troup persists in  his course.   The Herald, as well as every  other   business   institution   in    Bonner's  Kerry, would like to be on friendly terms  with  till  the transportation  lines  doing  business here, but  the  Herald will light  any outfit- all summer that persists in discriminating against Bonner's Kerry.  The above is from the Bonner's Ferry  Herald of the 18th instant. It does captain Troup great injustice. That he has  at any time discriminated against the  Bonner's Kerry route, iu favor of the  Columbia river route, is all bosh. Up to  the time that work was commenced on  the Kaslo wagon road it was a stand-off  which was the best route into the Slocan  mines, that by way of Ivaslo or that by  way of Nakusp. Supplies were forwarder!  with greater promptness by the Nakusp  route, and that route must have had  some ."id vantages or Jim Wardner would  not have kept his pack train on.it as long  tis he did. Steamboats must be run to accommodate the traveling public, and, we  believe, that the only town in the whole  country thsit litis good reason to criticize  the management of the steamboat line in  question is the town of Nelson, whose  people have not been given the transportation facilities this winter that they  should have been given. But this docs  not concern Bonner's Kerry, as Nelson is  fully able to fight its own battles, and if  it gets the worst of it, it will keep on  kicking unjil it gets the best of it. Then,  again, this talk of the business men of  Bonner's Kerry giving tlieir immense  trade to any .-steamboat is -a. good deal  like the wholesale houses in Kevelstoke  supplying the merchants in the Kootenay  Lake country with, the bulk of their  goods. Bonner's Ferry is on the map today simply .because it happens to be a  good place for steamboats to receive  freight in transit from wholesale centers  in eastern Canada for points in British  Columbia, and the bulk of its business i.s  derived from travelers to and from the  mining camps on Kootenay lake.  "Will Lardo he Another Kaslo?  On Alonday of last week the steamer  Kaslo carried an excursion party from  Kaslo to Lardo, returning the same day.  The trip was a most enjoyable one and  was participated in by quite a number  from Spokane and other outside points.  Great changes for the better have taken  place in Lardo since the first excursion  last December. The forest which heretofore covered tho land has been nearly all  cleared and the trail connecting tin; Lardo  river by easv grade has been ontirolv  completed. The Fletcher 6c Taylor hotel  is rapidly being finished and will be a  commodious home. Fourteen men tire  kept busy on the townsite and the coin-  p:iny boarding-house is looked after by  Jack Oates, tin old-time cook in the Kootenay Lake country. .Many anticipate  that the scenes now taking place in Kaslo  will be reenacted in Lardo iu the next I'ew  months. The steamer Ainsworth also  made a trip to Lardo on Sunday hist, carrying <i large number of excursionists  Lardo is now making a do e second in the  race with Ktislo in general interest anrl  real estate stiles.  A   COMMITTEEMAN   RETURNS.  His  Report  to   His  Constituents  Will, not be  Exactly  What  was  Hoped,  for.  G. O. Buchanan, who has been nt Victoria for a month or more in the interest  of Kaslo, returned  to Nelson on Tuesday  by way of  the Northport route.    While  not at liberty to state the sum  that tho  government premised  to  bring down in  the supplementary estimates for the Kaslo  wagon   road, a substantial  sum  will  no  doubt be appropriated.   lie says the government point blank refused to refund to  the subscribers any of the money already  spent, and that if an appropriation was  made it would be expended under the immediate direction of government officials,  and not under the direction of any committee.    The government i.s in a quandary  as to the roads that should be built, from  so many different petitions being sent in.  Air. Buchanan is of opinion that the redistribution    bill   will    give   Vancouver  another     member,     New     Westminster  another,  and  Yale .mother,  leaving the  other districts represented as at present.  Asked as to railway legislation and railway rumors in general, he said that he,  like the majority of people in this section,  favored   a  general   railway  act   or   the  granting of   charters  to   till  applicants;  but under the  peculiar  local conditions  that-exist at Kaslo, being afraid that if a  charter was granted  for a road up Ktislo  river in the interest of the Canadian Pacific, that that company would" pursue its  usual policy of threatening to build a road  merely    'to     prevent   any    other    company from doing so; therefore he had did  what he could to'help the promoters "of  the Kaslo 6c- Slocan railway to betid off  tiie Canadian Pacific, charter applicants.  He also said that the impression prevailed  at Victoria, that had the Corbin interest  secured a charter for a road  from Kaslo  to.the,Slocan mines, that-nothing* would  have  been done on  the  Nelson   <fc.'Fort  Sheppard  railway this year; but, on the  other hand,.-the Ktislo road would have  been built and'the traffic all diverted over  the Columbia <v Kootenay railway and  down the Columbia river to the northern  terminus of the Spokane 6c Northern. Air.  Buchanan says  he  was assured   by Air.  Corbin,  'when passing through Spokane,  that the Nelson fc Fori Sheppard would  be built this .summer, ami that all reports  to the contrary were mere bosh,    lie sairl  he also received the same assurances from  .other.men who should be in a'position to  know inside facts.  In speaking in tt general way of the leg-  ishitive assembly and the government.  Air. Buchanan said.it appeared, to him  that the government should be made up  of men who could devote tlieir entire time  to the duties of their respective departments, and not, practically, leave the  duties to irresponsible assistants.  The Northport Route Open.  Boats are now making regular trips between Northport and the mouth of Kootenay liver, connecting at tlie former place  with trains on the Spokane & Northern  for allparts of the world and tit tlie hitter point with trains on the Columbia 6c  Kootenay for Nelson and tlie ice Hoes  on the outlet. The water in the Columbia is reported very thin, so thin that  captain Gore lias great difficulty in finding a channel. The first trip on Friday  and Saturday was made '"without much  difficulty, but the trip on Alonday anil  Tuesday was not made so easily, owing  to the water having fallen a little. No  freight was brought on either trip, but  from this time on efforts will be made to  bring through supplies that are badly  needed. Trains connecting with the boat  leave Nelson at li o'clock'on Sundays and  Wednesdays. The boat leaves Northport  on Mondays and Fridays. On the Bonner's Ferry route, the sleigh road must  still be holding out, for tlie Nelson, quit  bucking ice in the outlet on 'Wednesday  morn ing to make a trip to the head of the  hike. She will resume bucking ice on her  return.  The Craw's Nest Pass Road.  J. J. Driscoll. who wtis at one time fuel  agent on the Pacific division of the Canadian Pacific, has been in Nelson several  days. Last year he was with tho syndicate that built the Calgary 6c Fdinonton  railway. Air. Driscoll says the grade i.s  completed on the eastern slope of the  Rockies up to within a short distance of  the bound;!ry between liritish Columbia  aud Alberta, and that thence down  through Crow's Nest pass to Fort Steele  the grade would be tin easy one for a railway. The piece graded is lifty miles in  length, but there remains a .'W-mile gai>  between it and the end of the Calgary 6c  Fdinonton near Fort Alacleod. He also  says that in his opinion, no work will be  done there this year; but that the construction' of the Winnipeg 6c Hudson's  Bay road is likely to be undertaken by  the same syndicate ��� Alessrs.

To THE I-IHTOK OK Till' TitIlil'NK: 111  answer to enquiries made by several residents of Nelson, a.s to the chance of our  having soon au hospital under Ihe management of the sisters, I beg to state that,  if Bight Hev. Paul Durieu, (). AI. I., I). I).,  lord bishop of New Westminster, IJ. C,  were petitioned by the majority of tiie  citizens of Nelson, his lordship would  gladly take the necessary sieps to have  the Sisters of Charily t.o erect aud manage  im hospital in Nelson, under the following conditions:  I. That the citizens, or the corporalion  of Nelson, shall agree to give or cause to  give to tho sisters tlie deeds of an acre of  land, in a suitable place within the limits  of the townsite of Nelson, in fee simple,  free of trust or incumbrance of tiny kind.  However, in consideration-of this donation of hind tlie sisters will agree to receive, every year, free of charge, a number of poor patients, proportioned to the  lawful interest of the actual value of the  land received.  2. Tlmt the citizens of Nelson shall subscribe at least $2000 toward the erection  of building.  A. That the citizens of Nelson, as a  guarantee of their good will, shall not  erect or cause to erect any other hospital  within ten years.  *f. That the sisters shall be free, (I) to  plan and erect their pwn'buiidings; (2) to  govern or manage the hospital according  to the rules and regulations of their order;  (A) to chose their own doctors and physicians who should attend to the patients  admitted free of charge. But, as ior the  patients that would pay the regular hospital fees, they will be i'ree to chose their  own doctors and physicians.  5. That the sisters themselves slmll determine the regular hospital fees.  0. That the sisters shall commence the  erection of building as soon tis the deed  of the land and the subscription above  mentioned shall be remitted to the sisters.  7. That the hospital shall be for all races  and creeds.  Hoping that these propositions will  meet with the approval of the majority  of the population of West Kootenay, and  in particular that of Nelson, I remain,  dear sir. yours truly,  Rev. Father J. A. Bi.dard, O.AI.L  A   THING   OF   BEAUTY  Is Perry's Mining Map of West Kootenay  District.  Alention has heretofore been made of  the mining map that C. E. Perry is making of AVest Kootenay district, and the  map is now so near completed tlmt tin extended notice is not out of place. It is 26'  by 40 inches in size, and divided in three  equal sections. The center section is an  outline map of the district south from the  Canadian Pacific railwav to the international boundary line. I.very hike, river,  creek, town, hamlet, townsite,and isolated  hotel is located as correctly as tictual surveys and reliable data can make it. The  best known groups of mines and placer  claims are .also shown. The railroads,  actual and projected, tire shown; also the  wagon roads, trails, mountain passes, telegraph, and telephone lines. The geological formations, as indicated by professor  Dawson, tire written on the map, as well  as the heights of the mountain ranges aud  isolated peaks. The.steamboat roiit.estire  indicated and tictual distances /^*jreh.  Enlarged maps of the Kaslo-Slocan.  Ainsworth, and Trail Creek districts take  up the left-hand section. These maps  show the topography of the country, affording almost; a birds-eye view of the  mountains and gulches. The principal  mines are correctly located, and colored  to indicate the kind of niettil they produce. The right-hand section contains a  map of Nelson district and one of the  Western hemisphere. The Nelson map is  similar to the maps of the other mining  divisions. The map of the Western hemisphere shows the position of the lvootenay Lake country to the remainder of  the western world, and gives the line.of  travel and distance to such places as  Sydney, Australia, and Cork, Ireland.  The variations .of the compass are also  given, the variation in Slocan district being 2-P AO' east from true north.  The map will be framed and hung in  the British. Columbia section of the Alines  building tit the World's Fair, tind we predict thai no more artistic piece of work  will be on exhibition. Before being  placed on exhibition the map will be lith-  ographed, so that copies can be obtained  by prospectors and others. If Nelson can  boast of no great man, it can boast that  in T. P. O'Farrell it luis one of the most  accomplished draughtsmen in America.  THE ESTIMATES BROUGHT DOWN.  SOURCES FROM WHICH THE PROVINCE'S  REVENUE   IS   EXPECTED.  Bast and 'West Kootenay Get all that can  Woll be Given Them in the "Way of Appropriations for the Fiscal Year Ending  30th June, 1894.  Last week the Davie government laid  before the Legislative Assembly the "Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure for  the fiscal year ending .Oth June, 1891."   it  gives the sources from whicli the expected  revenue (a total of Jj5_,i358,0&-.-15) will  be  derived, and .shows how �� 1,2__, 797.05 of it  is to be expended.    East and AVest Kootenay districts, although containing  less  than one-twentieth of the total population  of the Province, get fully one-tenth of the  total appropriations.    Of course, many of  our people expected much more; but, if  the question is considered impartially, it  will be found that the two districts have  received all  that could  be   fairly given  them.

Wright of Ainswortli  suites  that  the promoters of the  Kaslo-Slocau Kail way Company refuse to  allow  any other   railway   company   the  right to  build a road  alongside   their'n.  The promoters of the  Ivaslo-Slocan railway are all residents oi' New Westminster,  and  two or "three of them  have,  in  the  past,'���spent both time and money in opposition   to  that i'or which  they are now  striving so hard to acquire, that is, railway monopoly. They worked like Trojans  to get a road into New Westminster that  would  be a  competitor of the Canadian  i'aeilie.  and  they   succeeded.    But   over  "here'in- West Kootenay these same two  or three men want a monopoly of the carrying trade of a mining district in which  they have not invested a dollar in mines.  Rather inconsistent, to say'the least.  How  absurd would  it appear to these men if  George AV. Hughes, the freighter on tlie  Ivaslo" wagon-road,  would go before the  legislative assembly and ask for a monopoly of the transportation business on that  wagon road because of having spent several .thousand, dollars in surveys, in road  building, and in  keeping the road-in repair?   Vet Mr.   Hughes litis spent more  money up and down Ivaslo river to give  the mine owners, prospectors, and  business   men   of   the   Jva.slo-Sloet.il   country  transportation   facilities   than  have   the  promoters of the Ivaslo 6c Slocan Railway  Company.    If charters must first  be obtained   in   order  to  build railways, then  give   them  to   all   who  apply,  and   the  chances tire the applicants who mean business will "get there."  A   POINTER   FOR   THE   GOVERNMENT.  Tlie iJtivie government seems to be  afraid that the capital of the iirovince  will be removed from Victoria, to some  point on the mainland, and in its fear is attempting to pass a bill that will allow it  to expend from hall* a million to a million  dollars in the purchase of additional  grounds on which to immediately erect  new and more imposing government buildings. While lhe present buildings are not  very imposing, they are certainly comfortable and rpiite roomy enough to house  all the ol'iicials who arc; compelled to work  in them. Ac(|iiiring additional ground is  all well enough, but real estate in Victoria,  especially in the neighborhood of the  present government grounds, is not likely  to increase very rapidly in value. The  fear 1 hat the people of the mainland will  move the capital as soon a.s they gain control of the legislative assembly is tt  groundless one. There: is now, and always  will be, a strong sentiment in the interior  that Victoria, and uot Vancouver or Kamloops, is the most pleasant and elegible  place at which to transact the province's  business. We will give the Davie government a pointer and charge it nothing.  Jnstead of expending half .a million dollars  in new buildings at Victoria., let that  amount be expended in giving the mining  Till-TuiiJUXi- is the only newspaper in  Canada that does not believe that Grover  Cleveland is a statesman,   it, instead, believes that lie is the greatest demagogue,  not   excepting   even   ".Andy"   Johnson,  thttt was ever president  of  the   United  States.    Jn   his  letter accepting his lirst  nomination, lie emphatically sttited that  no  man  should  be elected'president for  more than one term, thereby gaining the  support   of   thousands    of    independent  voters  who  believed  that a single-term  president would do much to reform a debased  civil  service.     He  was  no sooner  comfortably installed in the White House,  however, than he began laying pipe for a  second  term,  and  was  so  far successful  that he easily got his party's nomination,  but met with defeat tit the polls.  Not sat-  isiied with taking part in two elections,  besought for and received a third nomination, and  was successful.    During the  canvass preceding his election, the measure wliich lie and  his party kept most  prominently before the  people  was the  repeal of the McJviuIey bill and a general  reform of the tariff.    This issue elected  hini president, aud before lie is fairly installed in the White House he announces  that any immediate or radical changes in  the tariff Jaws would jeopardise the business interests of the country.    Why the  Canadian press, of both political -parties,  is never tired of sounding the praises of  Grover Cleveland is beyond our comprehension.    But  then   AS'e  were  born  in  a  backwoods Ontario township,"and  don't  know much anyway.  himself in the new towns, like Ivaslo.  knowing well that the people in the older  towns and camps have him "s'r/.ed up."  John Andrew, you are not ns slick as you  think you are. The people of Ktislo have  less use for you than have even the people  of Nelson. -Then, agaiii, they are all  Americans and can't vote at any elections  except ones for lire wardens. _  Tnici'K are rumors floating in the air  that the provincial government intends to  make several changes in its staff of officials  in West Kootenay district. We hope  that the rumors are unfounded, I'or the  officials already on tho ground are tis  good tis tiny that tire likely to be sent us;  and, then, the people arc acquainted with  their peculiarities and know pretty well  how to take them. This would till have to  be learned over again, were a change  made. So; swap the present officials  around, but do not, I'or God's sake, send  us a new batch.  GOLD.  SILVEE.  i_:_____. _d_  "'If a".merchant of'any of the towns or  cities in British���Columbia in which a bank  of issue is doing business were to go to one  of these banks with twenty thousand dollars in the bank's paper money aud demand gold therefor, how many of them  would, or could smilingly hand over the  gold coin? Not a. single one. Yet the  chartered banks doing business in British  Columbia tire till managed by men who  believe in the gold standard and are only  too Avilling to discount silver 20 percent  when it is offered them for deposit. What  is true of British Columbia is true of every  other ���province in Canada, -dillions of  dollars in paper money are issued by  ehartered banks, the paper being payable  in gold on demand, yet if till the gold in  till the banks was gathered together it  would not be of sufficient value to redeem  the bills of one of these banks���the Bank  ���of Montreal for instance. Canada is as  badly in need of Ireecoinageas the United  States.   Kasi.o litis already one weekly newspaper named "The Kxaniiner": a circular,  over the name of T. .1. Lowery. announces  that it will soon have another, ^ to be  called "The Claim"; it is given out that  the company that recently acquired The  Miner of Nelson will put in a newspaper  at Kaslo; and it is believed by many that  the Spokane Review willsoon move to the  wickedest city on Kootenay hike, because  it even now prints r_ore Ktislo news than  S|K)ktme news.  John Anohkw JIaiia, who at present  represents Kootenay in the .Dominion  house of commons, is a pretty shrewd  practical politician its well as business  man. lie knows on which side his bread  is buttered. He also knows that he is  very cordially disliked, tis ti politician, in  West Kootenay, and that if tin election  were held tomorrow, the number of votes  cast for him in the district would be few.  There is little danger of tin election being  held tomorrow, but one may be held  within a year. He wants to be prepared  for the unexpected, and is apparently  trying to create a favortiblesentiment for ,  Thk Kaslo I_xaminer last week reprinted three or four items that appeared  in Tin. Tmnuxi-of a previous week, and  commenting thereon advises the people of  Ivaslo to boycott Tin-; Thiijuxk. If the  lilxtiiniuer will only reprint each week till  that appears in Tin-; Titnsi'XK regarding  Ktislo, it will then be in our class as a  newspaper, and we will go it ti round.  Marquis of Queensbury or any other  rules; but until the bixaininer is in our  class we must decline commenting on any  of its frothy ebullitions.  Tun laws of British Columbia are as liberal as those of any province or state in  Canada or tlie United  States.   Life and  property rights are both respected.1  The  alien from the United States is denied no  rights or privileges accorded the citizen of  Great Britain, except that he is required  to live in the province a year before he  can sell whisky and is required to take out'  naturalization papers in order to preempt  crown land.    One of the laws of the province prohibits public gambling, and  it is  strictly enforced in every city and  town  in    the    province,   .'with One -exception.  What is meant by public gambling is percentage games   like   'vfaro,"   "roulette,"  "percentage stud," "craps;" "'keno." etc.  No objection has been or is made to quiet  games like poker, seven-up, euchre, whist,  and solo, games tit 'which the boys can indulge in  among themselves.    Tiik Tmnuxi- does not believe that public gambling  benefits   any  community,  for  it knows,  from long experience, that every "square"  professional gambler is'followed by a hundred tinhorns, nine out of ten of whom  are   but   little   better   than   rol'essional  thieves.    That public gambling litis been  permitted   in   one  town   in   the  province  can be overlooked  if the officials in   that  town will now do their duty.    Tlieir duty  is simply to. give all  tinhorns and  hobos  the run.    Tiik Tiubcxk is of opinion Ihat the  present gold commissioner of West Kootenay litis made many mistakes as tin official : but it is also of opinion that ninny of  the mistakes were; made by his taking  the advice of two supposed friends, who  poj-e as the only men in the district having infallible knowledge of (he mineral  act. These two men are marplots, and  had no other object in view than to discredit the gold commissioner wilh both  the people and the government. Yet the  government is seriously considering the  advisability of foisting one of these marplots on tint district as a high official.  Tiik British Columbia members in the  Dominion house of commons are about as  useless a job lotas were ever sent to a. legislative body. If they ask the government,  for anything, it is generally something  that will benefit themselves as individuals, and when not for their individual  benefit is a daniphool proposition such as  77 the establishment of a volunteer  " mounted infantry corps I'or the interior  '��� of the Province."

(Notary   Public)  AND  the divorce  against Narcisse  Vyhy the order was signed no  to know, and several attorneys  who were.imerviewed -on the.subject-yesterday said, that judge Jiuck.niust have  acted hastily and without due reflection.  The order signed in this case even prohibits the clerk from telling the name of  the attorney that filed the complaint. An  attorney said yesterday he could notsee  how the interests of justice would be benefitted by keeping the recital of Mrs. Rio-  pefle's marital grievances from the public.  Another said that her attorney wants  notoriety, and is endeavoring to excite  the curiosity of the public. "It may be,'  said die, 'that the .case is so bad that the  ' attorney is ashamed to have his name  mentioned in connection with it. Another  plausible theory is that Mrs. iviopeile's attorney intends .to marry her, and wants  the divorce granted by star chamber  methods toa.void notoriety. Possibly the  attorney is married, and litis to obtain a  divorce'hiniself before lie can marry his  client, and is trying how secretly it can  be done. There are many explanations  that -occur to me, but I think the most  plausible one is that Air's. Hiopelle i.s some  attorney's mother-in-law.'"

Then Mr. IMopelle? related the  following circumstantial account of how  the robbery was worked:  Said Mr. Kiopelle: "We .arrived at  Spokane on the Ist of June of last year, a-nd  in a day or two I started for the Okana-  gan country to look for work. I remained  in that country until August.when I returned to Spokane, only to find my wife  living under the protection of a man  named Tyrrell, who is the proprietor of  the O. K. livery stable: on Riverside 11 ve-r  nue. I ininiedia.tely sought an interview  ���with' Mr. Tyrrell, who informed 1110 that  he'Found Mrs. liiopolle broke and in debt,  and that lie hael simply advanced her  money to pay her legitimate expenses until such time tis I returned. I then se-ught  an interview with my wife, juiel she corroborated Mr. Tyrrell's statements.  Knowing that they were not as innocent its they would have me believe. I  sought another interview with Mr. Tyrrell. We got a rig and took a drive.  During that drive I punipe:d him to Iinel  out how things actually stood. Tyrrell  said he liked the woman, and tha t I f I hael  not returned he would have tried to prevail on her to apply for a divorce. 1 them  and there (old liiiii I would see hini next  day anel arrange For obtaining a divorce:.  The next day I saw him. ami he ns'-ed  ���what plea I would put in, and I saiel  "adultery."

The government wholly conducts  ���'all'��� German railway.-.lines.' l-very employee, even the waiters at the station  dining-room.-'., has been a German soldier,  and the entire regime is military. .Each  station has a captain in a red cap and  gorgeous uniform. The station guards  and porters are a lso uniformed, with chirk  blue caps. When a train halts the captain and his station guards' will be found  drawn up in line iu front of the 'main entrance. The train guard alights and  salutes the station captain, "who with his  men return the salute, when the loading  and unloading is begun. As far as convenience of arrangement, cleanliness, and  comfort are concerned, the German railway station is immeasurably superior to  the depots along most American lilies.  They are invariably models of neatness,  tidiness and comfort. They tire not in-  fi'-epiently the prettiest structures to be  seen during tin entire day's travel. They  always have a lovely bit of lawn about  them, in which are often fountains, flowers, and tidy hedges. Many are covered  by ivy or creeping a-nd flowering vines.

When his father died some years ago the  young man inherited a considerable estate. One day he met a neighbor who  owned a game rooster. "See: here;. Clay,'  said he.

Lots in the town of Argenta, at 'the  head oi' Koo-Oiiay lake, and on the opposite shore from Lardo, are reported as  selling rapidly at Kaslo and Aelson. A  i'ew lots are also being sold at Trout Lake  City. The record made by Four Mile  City is not yet etpudeel by any of the  other embryo towns, however.  A 30-foot lot on AVest Baker street was  sold last week for $2000 cash. There i.s  not another lot on the street that can be  had for the same money.  Hill Brothers' sawmill  at the head  of  Sloean lake commenced cutting lumber ou  Monday e*f this week.  The Sew Denver townsite trouble is  not yet settled; but probably will be before the assembly adjourns.  Every old timer in AVest Kootenay  knows "jiieige" Tunstall, at one time gold  ..commissioner of this district, but now  holding the same 'position in Yale district.  The "judge" has been induced to subscribe for the San Francisco Examiner, a  paper that distributes gifts to a few of its  luckiest subscribers. In the distribution  of gifts, the judge Avon a pair of roller  skates, anel now is in a quandary what to  do with them, as he is just a trifle too old  to risk even a practice exercise on them.  "Judge," Ave have often given yon good  advice, and here is another piece: "Give  them skates to the ''judge's son," who is  once more domiciled in-his--rookery-at  Nelson.  By careful count, there are just 15 real  estate .offices in Kaslo, and 00 curb-stone  brokers who haven't yet raised to the dignity of a blotting-pad, pen, anel ink, and  a table to write on.  The usual crop of spring poets have  bobbed'up serenely in Ivaslo. The exciting scenes and incidents connected with  the Bigelow relief party "wlien they so .  heroically came to the rescue of the citizens during the recent whisky famine,  has called out considerable latent talent.  So far Hon. J. J. Barclay-Green bears the  - honors of "poet laureate," on account of  his effusion, a parody on "the charge of  the light brigade."  Davie] P. Kane has selected a beautiful  site ou the hill overlooking Kaslo bay for  his future and permanent home. As soon  as completed, his mother and sisters will  remove there, the olel home having given,  way to the steady march of improvements.

The Bigelow-Leineni Fast Freight anel  Treasure; Convoy Company leaves Nelson  daily for all points on the lake. This  company has noconnection with any  other transportation outfit. Its master of  transportation stems at all way points to  dispense justice.  ll. F. Green is back again in Ainsworth  from Victoria, where he went tei try anel  convince the government that an appropriation should, be maele for the Kaslo  wagon road. Bob does not know whether  lie was successful or not.  St. Patrick's day was celebrate! in  Ivaslo in a right royal manner. One  great drawback,   however,  was the lack  of green ribbon, there nob being enough  in town to go around among the citi/.ons  hailing I'mm the lOmerald Isle. In tho afternoon tl procession was formed which  marched up anel down the principal  streets to the music of a mixed band.

Alike Ma-  honey and Jim JMcAntlrow were prominent personages in the procession; the  one an Irishman from Sangamon county,  Illinois, the other a Scotchman from the  county of Bruce, Ontario.'  For a wonder, the Columbia- 6c Koote-  nay Steam Navigation Company allowed  the seventeen passengers that ca.me in em  Tuesday, by "way ot- Northport, to remain over night at Nelson.  This week M.

' The last half-yearly report of the directors of the Bank of British Columbia looks  like tlie exercises that appeared iu the  Canadian public school text books years  and years ago.' The figures are all in  pounds, shillings, and pence, and we are in  doubt, by "looking at the arrays of figures,  whether the bank has made money or  lost it. But judging from the smile that  ���overspreads the benign countenance' of  the bank's manager at Nelson, the directors either declared a 'dividenel or .raised  his salary. One thing is absolutely certain, however, the bank'is perfectly solvent, and, plain unarfcistic bills are as good  as gold.  our  W/I.I/ HE  SOU)   .AT  TriK   KOLLOWING  IMtKjKS   AND   TKKMS:  Ipsides $75        <?6n}er5 $100  _ivcET^ci3:_A_isrTS-  PO  HALF  CASH.
