Lieutenant-Govoi-nor Dowclnoy Gave His Assent  to the Bill on Thursday.  ,1 ���u.titeiinnt-d'ovornor Dcwtluoy gave his  ;i������-.���(_nd lo the hill incorporating Lhe cities  of Nelson,' 1 .'--jsl.-inil nnd O'rand Forks.on  Thursday nflonioon. nnd (ho bill thereby  became law. Tliis was a fortunate thing  for Iho people of nil throe ciLio.*_, ;is so  long sis tlie bill lucked the assent of tiie  lieutenant-governor it was in thinner of  being biought back to the house for reconsideration. It is probable that the  letters patent, incorporating all three  cities, will bo issued next week, so that a  start may be made by, the new cities towards getting nei-e-^ary public works under way.  Tlie bill was up I'or its third rending on  Tuesday and went through rather unex-,  pecledly. Tho only infinber who opposed  it was lingers, of Cariboo, who sought to  amend section eleven of (he bill, which  em powered the councils to puss money  by-laws without the consent of tins people, by making such by-laws subject to  the approval of the lieutenant-governor  in council.    This was defeated.  ,1. Fred Hume had secured an amendment to section 12 of the bill in the form  of a sub-section which read : "It shall be  law lid for the s;iid cities, and they are  hereby empowered at any time hereafter  to make antl divert from any stream or  streams as may be found most suitable,  and to appropriate or u-e sufficient unappropriated water for all public purposes  of the said municipalities, and  from time  10 time t.o construct all works that may  be necessary for efficiently using such  water, and to erect dams, railways and  all works which may be necessary for  t he maintenance of such water privileges,  and to exercise all the power mentioned  in the 'Water Privileges Act. LS02.'"  Kogers sought to atld a rider to this  amendment which, had it parsed, would  have stuck the town of Nelson for several  thousand dollars for useless water works.  11 is amendment to the.sub-section inserted  by Hume read: "Provided that before  thesaid cities or any of them shall exercise the powers by this .section conf'ened,  they shall purchase the whole plant or  system of any existing persons or corporations now supplying water or light to the  said cities or any of them, or any of the  inhabitants thereof in accordance with  the provisions ol' the 'Arbitration Act,  IS-..".:' provided, however, in arriving at  the amount of compensation to be paid to  such persons or corporations the arbitrators shall in no wise take into consideration the value of the right---, poweis. or  privileges of the company." The house  very sensibly rejected this amendment.  The only material''amendment' made to  the^bill was that moved by Attorney.  (ieneral __bert_, extending the liiuitsnf the  town of Nelson by taking in the Hoover  addition.' This was done on the strength  of a petition signedby all tiie residents of  the addition in favor of being included.  The legislature decided that the people  who had 'purchased lots and were Jiving  upon them were more concerned in the  government of the town than ��� we're the  non-resident owners of the major portion  of the addition.  pa city of 500 tons per day, the company  to have a en pi Lai of ��250,000 and spend  -1.-0,000 on the erection of tho works.

The appeal in Kenny vs.���Harris, affecting the ownership of the Slocan Sovereign  mining claim, was before the full court in  Victoria on Thursday. This case was an  adverse mining claim to the ground located by plaintiff as the Slocan Sovereign  mine and by defendants as the Omega.  On March 11, l8.J(i, Judge Spinks. sitting  at Ivaslo, gave judgement establishing the  right ot plaintiff to ownership of the  ground. For defendants today 1_. I'. Duff  made application to allow an appeal from  the judgment. Notice had been given by  defendants of au appeal within the required time for a sitting of the full court  next after Judge Spinks. Judgment was  given, but the appeal was not net down,  owing to the impossibility of proving tlie  notes of the judge who tried the case.  The full court refused the application,  with costs, holding that defendant, should  have applied for an extension of time for  .setting down an appeal at the sitting of  the court next after the notice had been  given. ,        Secured the Lily B.  The Vancouver 6c liritish Columbia l-_x-  ploratiou Company has acquired the principal interest in the bond on the J/dy'l..,.  .Portland and Rainbow on Springer creek.  The manager of the properties says that  when he took charge he did not touch the  surface showing, but started a cross-cut  tunnel at a depth of 00 feet," a. nf I after  running in 02 feet, the lead, 12 fee. in  width, was found. This tunnel is about  100 feet west of a large chute of ore: showing on the surface. Drifting to the east  is now being done on the lead to tap _ this  chute of ore, and another cross-cut will be  commenced this week below the present  one. In the face of the drift there is six  inches of clean and the balance concentrating ore. The oi c is dry, and averages  $100 to the ton. The Lily Ai. group is a  mile west of.the Two Friends, and about  2000 feet from the .Arlington shaft.  Vancouver Accepts Another Scheme.  At a special meeting of the Vancouver  city council Thursday afternoon it wa.s  decided to recommend the acceptance of  the scheme for the establishment of a  smelter here, submitted by the Fnglish  company, headed 'by J. il.

(..amble, of the public  works department, to make {.reparations  for beginning tho work at once. The first  work will be directed towards clearing  out the log snags and tlie sweepers which  stretch out from the shore. Ton men will  be employed beside the foreman, and it is  expected that it will take until the rising  water drives the party out to accomplish  the necessary work. A further appropriation will be required.to do some necessary work above Ilouser lake, when it  is thought that a light draught steamer  could get as far as where the big jam was  located.   Stocking Jackson Basin Properties.  The mineral claims First Chance, II. E.  Adams, Gait and Hillside in the Jackson  basin, will be stocked by i\ G\ Nash and  J. 'Fred.'Ritchie'. The 'company will be  known as the Hillside Silver Mining company. The development work already  done upon the claims has shown them to  bo of considerable value. This work will  be continued by the new owners, Who  will work two shifts in driving a. tunnel'  for further development. The claims are  less than a mile from Whitewater station  on the Ivaslo 6c Slocan railway. F. Ward,  foreman of the Whitewater, and Charles  Bt-hrman, of Ivaslo, are interested with  Nash and Ritchie in the properties.  Fine Showing in the Whitewater.  AV. C. Price, of Oakland, California, has  been  visiting the Whitewater mine this  week   in  conipany  with manager   J.  C.  Eaton.   Air.  i'rice'became  interested  in  the property some years ago, and has always had an abiding faith in the Slocan,  and has held on to the property in connection with .'Mr. Faton. He was much,  gratified by the showing at the mine on  this visit. There are five feet of ore in  the second tunnel, which is now about 50  feet from the winze already'.sunk from  the tipper tunnel. Manager Eaton says  that this i.s something different from previous experience.   The ore is high grade.  Oi-e That Runs Over $350 Per Ton.  John A. Whittier was naturally pleased  by the returns from the last car-load of  ore from the Goodenough wliich passed  through the sampling works. The assay  return showed 5..S ounces of silver and 70  per cent. lead. It would be hard to beat  this in the way of rapid accumulation of  legitimate wealth. There was a report in  circulation the other flay that the Goodenough and Grey Copper were to be taken  over by a company organized for the.purpose. The capital stock is said to be  $800,000, with as many shares. The treasury stock will be probably placed at 25  cents.   Will Take the Stock Themselves.  The trustees of the Sullivan Group Mining company held a meeting on Thursday  in Spokane at the f.e Roi offices, and decided to sell from 75,000 to 100,000 shares  of Lhe treasury stock. The owners have  sucli faith in the property that none of  this stock will be placed on the market.  They will take all that is olTered. The  company's property includes the Hope.  Hamlet and Shylock claims in Fast Kootenay.   O'Brien's Application to Purchase Refused.  The outcome of F. M. O'Erien^s application to purchase Sandon i.s that the land  oflice says the lands are not open to purchase, for the reason that the application  overlaps previously granted and recorded  mineral claims, and also comes within the  boundaries of the Kaslo and Slocan Railway reserve.  THE   BILL   WAS   VETOED.  The Policy ol'  a  Michigan Politician  Is Thereby Rendered Futile.  President Cleveland has vetoed tlie immigration bill to whicli the' celebrated  Coi'lNs amendment wa.s attached, and has  thus removed'the necessity for retaliatory men--un.s on the part of the Dominion  government. President Cleveland took  exception to the entire spiritof the bill as  being contrary to the national policy of  the 1'iiited States. Ilis objections (o tiie  Corliss amendment have more interest to  Canadians, however, ns this amendmend-  mendmenL was aimed directly at them.  lu his letter (o congress, in dealing with  this portion of (ho bill, ho said: '"The  prohibition against the employment qi  aliens on the public works of the l-nited  States is in line with legislation of a like  character. When' we consider the provisions of the bill in connection with our  long northern frontier and the boundaries  of several of our states and territories  often but imaginary lines separating  them from Canada-, and recall the friendly  intercourse between tho people who are  our neighbors on either side, the provisions of (his bill affecting them must  bo regarded a.s illiberal, narrow and un-  American. The residents of these states  and territories have separate and especial  interests which in many cases makes au  interchange of labor between their people and their alien laborers most important, frequently with the advantage  largely in favor of our citizens, could  hardly fail to provoke retaliatory measures to the injury of many of 'our citizens  who are now employed on adjoining foreign soil.'"

Thk Ti!iuuxi'_: Many,  of your readers will be interested'to know  that the long looked for metal, tin, has  been discovered at last iu British Columbia. The sample given to me for assay  was in small metallic grains, and was said  by the.prospector, who brought it to have  been picked out by him from rotten granite, which is very probably true, as it is  in a granite formation .that,tin is usually  found. I think it rightcto say that I have  the utmost confidence in the bona fides of  thecfinder, who was completely ignorant  of the value of the metal, and thought it  was native amalgam, though, of course,  to the experienced eye it did not particularly resemble tliat material.  The exact locality J am hardly at liberty  Io mention just yet, but it was near the  North Fork of the Salmon, from which  district we shall probobly hear a good  deal this coming summer. So far 1 have  not received the rock itself, but expect to  do so every clay, and it will give me great  pleasure to place it on exhibition if it  turns out to be what is expected. Hoping  that the importance and novelty of the  discovery will make it worth publication.  I am. sir, Vours truly,  A. H. J1oi.dk'ii,  Analytical Chemist and Assayer.  Bailey Invests In East Kootenay.  S. S. Bailey, one of the pioneers of the  Slocen, has made some purchases in Kast  Kootenay nnd will give his attention to  other development. The four claims included in the deal are tho Great Northern,  Argenta, Del Norte and Fred T. Dubois.  They are located on'JIell Roaring creek, a  tributary of the St. Mary's. They are  silver-lead propositions. About $ 1, :">(.()  worth of development work has been  done on the Del Norte. The owners of  the claims were A. L. Jameson, L. Row-  ker, Phil Casey and Capt. G. H. Gray, and  they parted with them for a ;���..'..">,000 bond.  The ore is of a very fair grade, and, with  the building of the Crvw's Nest Pass railway, there is no doubt as to the value of  tlie mine, and little doubt that the bond  will be taken up. A substantial cash payment is made, whicli will secure an option  to July 1, IN!)7. All payments aYu to be  made within a year.  What the C. P. R. Wanted.  An Ottawa dispatch says that the Canadian Pacific asked the federal government for a bonus of $10,000 per mile to  build a line from Lethbridge to Nelson, a  distance of .'.00 miles, and agreed to have  it in operation by next January.

The increase of coal is altogether due to  Nova Scotia, which produced 200,1."58 not  tons more than in IN05, but this increased  output is offset in a large measure by a  decrease of 10-1,02!) tons iu the production  oi British Columbia.  Copper shows a large decrease in' Ontario and a small increase in Quebec, while  British Columbia's contribution i.s .'3,SIN,-  -J.j.) pounds, which amount is I.NISjOo  pounds more than 189.5.  In gold, large increases are to be credited to Nova Scotia and Ontario, but British Columbia heads the list with an increase over the previous year of $107,07."..  The production of lead is altogether  that of Rritish Columbia, antl has increased in the .year by over 1.000.000  pounds, but a decrease in the market-  price of some N per cent. lessens the total  value by $2N,;".S2.  British Columbia shows an output of  silver amounting to '3.135,313 ouuees, valued at $2.100.080, an increase during the  past 12 months of 1.120,000 ounces in quantity, and in value of nearly a million dol-  hirs. ^__  MUZZLE   THIS   MAN.  A .Little Speech Which Shows to What Length  Provincialism Can Go.  Ottawa, March, -I.���The Hon. F. W.  Scott, secretary of state, said- today that  lis would not be surprised if thegovernment left the Crow's Nest rail way severely  alone. "Why," he asked, "should we concern ourselves about a road for the Kootenay mining district? Iu all southern  British "Columbia the total population  does not exceed 23,000, and of these only  about 5000 are Canadians? Why, then,  should we spend money to provide American capitalists and American miners with  a railway? Tliere .would, be-much more  to be said in favor of the expenditure of  money on a railway iu the".Rainy River  gold district in Ontario, where the mines  are chiefly owned by Canadians."  If Wilfred Laurier does not wish to  have his government discredited in tiie  west, he will muzzle such men as Hon. F.  W.Scott. He does not appear to realize the  effect of the development of Kootenay's  mineral resources upon the Dominion He  says that there are less than 25,000 people  in southern Kootenay, and asks why the  federal government should concern itself  about a road for southern Kootenay. it  is in order to ask Hon. F. \V. Scott why  the few people in southern Kootenay pay  taxes amounting to over $50 per head to  the Dominion government? The duties  collected through the port of Nelson for  the last three months amounted to $328,-  500. If the people are to be refused public works, what are they to receive iu return for tli is heavy tax?  Steamboat Men as Miners.  New companies are continually being  formed. The latest for which articles of  incorportion have beeu framed, is the  HI tie Point Mining 6c Milling company, of  which the incorporators are captain D, C.  McMorris, William Seaman, C. A. Wright  and Kli A. Smith, known as the "Steamboat gang," with M. Grathe and W.A.White, who will be the provisional directors. The company will take over the  HI tie Point antl Continent mineral claim--,  situate about two miles from Sanea. The  capital stock will bo.$ 125,000, divided into  500,000 shares of the par value of 25 cents  each. The treasury stock will consist of  200,0(10 shares, whicli will be issued at par.  The claims are said to -promise well.  Good Returns Prom Charleston Ore.  Last Saturday J. 10. Mitchell, manager  of the Charleston mine, received from the  Kootenay Ore company returns of a ear-  load of ore which had been run through  the Kaslo City Sampling works. The  assay of the ' carbonates' returned 220  ounces of silver to the ton and 31 percent,  lead; that ol the galena was 100 ounces  silveraud 53 per cent. lead. The net returns of the car-load was very nearly  $1500. This'Certninly was not at all bail  for a primal effort. Other .".hipments  from Llie same properly will follow in tlie  early future.  Wanted to See It Anyway.  Lord Posse, who built the  famous telescope that bears his name, was an expert  mechanic, and was also somewhat careless  about his dress. On one occasion the earl  was looking through the engine room of  a large iinnufaclory. lie suddenly became much interested in something he  saw, and  looked apprehensive.    The en  gineer came up. "Well, what's up?" he  growled. "What, are you shaking your  head and looking nt your watch for?  What have you got to find fault wilh?"  "Oh," answered ,Lord Rosse, "I'm not  finding any fault'. I'm just waiting till  lhe boiler explodes." "Till lhe boiler explodes ? Why. you're crazy, man ! You'll  have lo gel out of here." "Well," said  the earl, "if you work ten minutes longer  with that screw loose there, the boiler-  certainly will explode." The engineer  looked at, the screw indicated by liis  rough visitor. He jumped at the screw,  and fastened it as soon as hecould. "Why  didn't you say that sooner?'' he demanded. '"Why should J?" answered  Lord Rosse. "I never yet have had au  opportunity to see a boiler explode!"  'THE GRIT DREAM SHATTERED.  THE C. P. R. HAS THE PULL;  McKinley Sounds the Death Knell to the Reciprocity Fad.  The inaugural address of president McKinley must be sad reading to those misguided Canadians-who,  for years, have  been preaching that  the  only  salvation  for the  Dominion,  was reciprocity with  the   United   States.    Sir   Richard    Cart-  wright   and   .'John   Charlton   have   been  buzzing   around   Washington   with   this  end in view, and now that McKinley has  spoken   upon   the subject,   they   will  no  doubt feel inclined to hire small boys to  kick their pants.    McKinley wants reciprocity, but he does not want reciprocity  with Canada.    lie will favor reciprocity  with no countries save those which export  goods  not produced  or manufactured in  the L'nited States.    Me wants all the protection he can getagainst Canada, but will  negotiate reciprocal trade relations with  the half civilized republics of South America.   Touching upon this matter in his  inaugural add re--s, he said:  "In the revision of the tariff especial attention should be given to the re-enactment and   extension  of   the reciprocity  principle of the law of 1S00, under which  great   stimulus   was   given   our   foreign  trade in new and advantageous markets  for our surplus of agricultural aud manufacturing products.   The brief trial given  this   legislation   amply justifies cfurther  experiment and  additional discretionary  power in the making of commercial treaties,   the  end   in   view  always to  be  the  opening up of new markets i'or the products of our country, by granting concessions to the products of other lands that  we  n.jed  and  cannot   produce ourselves,  and wliich do not involve any loss of labor  to-our''own .people,.but tend  to increase  their.employment."  The depression'of .the  past four years'has  fallen with especial,  severity  upon   the  great bodies of   the  country aud  upon none  more  than -the  holders of small: farms.    Agriculture has  languished and   labor suffered.    The revival of manufacturing- would be a relief  to both.    No portion of our peopleis more  devoted  to the institutions of free government nor moi e loyal in their support,  while none bears more cheerfully or fully  its share in the maintenance of the government, or is better entitled c-to its wise  and liberal care and protection.    Legislation helpful to producers is beneficial to  all.    The present condition of industry in  the farm and in the manufacturing have  lessened the ability of 'the people to meet  the demands upon them and they rightfully expect .that  not  only a system  of  revenue shall be established that will secure the largest income with the slightest  burden,  but   that   every  means  will   be  taken to  decrease  rather   than  increase  our public expenditures.   The conditions  are not most promising. . It will take time  to restore the prosperity of former years.  If we cannot promptly'attain it, we can  resolutely turn our faces in that direction  and aid its return by friendly legislation.  However troublesome the situation  may  appear, congress  will  not,  I am sure, be  found lacking in disposition or ability to  relieve as far as legislation can do so. The  restoration of confidence and'.the revival  of business which men of all  parties so  much-desire, depends  more largely upon  the   prompt,   energetic   and    intelligent  action of congress than   upon  any other  single agency that affects the situation."  Vancouver Island Coke lor Kootenay.  In connection with the contract which  I.}. Duunsinuir oc Sons have made to supply Kootenay smelters with tine thousand  tons of union coke per moiith, the Nanaimo l-'ree Press states that the coal from  the recently opened Alexandra colliery of  Dunsmuir iv Sons, makes a grade of coke  which gives the best possible results in  some grades of smelting, and that for the  present a limited (|iiantity of the Alexandra coal will be taken to the l.'nion  coke ovens and there converted into coke.  Should the demand justify, coke ovens  will shortly be erected in the immediate  vicinity oi the Alexandra mine--, about  live iniles south of Nanaimo.  Tho Death  The  death  of   W.

Not since the death of the venerable j.hil-  onthropist, Peter Cooper, has so great a  blank been made in the ranks of socialistic  propagandist]! in New York.  Tlie Feeling* Throughout the East Is that thb  Big- Company will Succeed.  It is stated upon good authority that  the Canadian Pacific company has purchased 00,000 tons of steel rails from  Messrs. Carnegie 6c Co., of Fittsburg, and  the general feeling throughout eastern  Canada, is that the big railway company  will secure the Crow's Nest charter.  This railway uuestion has evidently  been too severe a ..train upon llie new  Liberal government, as it has been forced  to cut some of the showy planks from its  platform, such as governmental ownership of railways. If the Toronto Globe,  the organ of the government, knows the  intentions of the government with respect to the Crow's Nest road, it may be  accepted that the Canadian i'aeifie will  secure tlie charter and substantial subsidies therewith. In return i'or generous  aid the corporation will be called upon to  make some concessions of more or less  doubtful value.  The Toronto News says: "One argument advanced by The Globe in defence  of the Canadian Pacific is that railway  competition is impossible of attainment'.,  and, therefore, it is better to get what  concessions the Canadian Pacific svill give  in the way of regulation of freight charges  than for the country to incur the heavy-  addition to the national debt by constructing the whole line, which might  afterwards be operated at a loss.-  "The argument is a singularly weak one.  The road must be paid for by the Canadian people, either in subsidies and bonuses at the beginning, or in excessive  fieight rates after it is in operation,-mid  much the better way of meeting the cost  would be the former, and then the burden  would bespread over the whole Dominion,  and the mining industry would not be  throttled or bled white to make up tlie  sum which capitalists loaned on the  enterprise.  "Seeing, then, that the Canadian people must pay for the road, why should  not the Canadian people own it, and have  it operated iu the interests of the great  industry that promises to lie developed  in the Kootenay country? With two  rival lines of railway with which to get  an eastern connection���the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern���the Crow's  Nest Pass line would not be at the mercy  of the Canadian Pacific railway in the  least degree, and the whole of British Columbia would profit bj- the existence of a  national railway through the mountains.  "The Globe is certainly leading the people astray in this matter. It may be compelled to follow and defend the government in the course it has decided upon,  but if the present apparent intention is  carried out, time will demonstrate,that.it  was a false guide for the people, as time  will show that in the first really great national affair Hon. Mr. Laurier has had to  deal with, he was not equal to the task of  protecting the Dominion from the ra pat-it y  of the huge railway corporation that now  controls the entire north and west."  GREATEST   WEEK   ON   RECORD.  West Kootenay Exports Close Upon $250,000  of Ore and Matte in One Week.  The shipments of ore and matte from  the mines and smelters of southern Koot-  enay during the first week of the present  month were the heaviest in the history of  the district. For the week ending today  there were entered nt the port of Nelson  for export IA70 tons, valued at $20-1,(Hi.  This does not include the Slocan ore exported via Kevelstoke, so that the district  for March will ship at this rate, close upon  $1,000,000 worth of mineral product. Up  to the end of February the total exports  .from the mines of the distiict amounted  to $1,110,01:., which, with the shipments  of the past week, gives a grand total of  $1.015,500.

Ask Your  Shoe  Dealer for the  Famous   MARCH.!, 1807  SATURDAY MORNING:  On Ti'dsdav the legi-laliire rejected  the amendment, to tlie incorporation bill  offered by Rogers of Cariboo, which hud  for its object the forcing or the city of  Nelson to purchase the water works system of the Consumer's Water Works company. This was as it should have been,  but it is doubtful if the bill would have  escaped this amendment had it not been  for the pi csence of the delegates sent from  Nelson, who, together with the members  for West Kootenay, fought the Rogers  amend merit to the best of their ability.  "While it cannot be denied buo that the  legislature in such cases should protect  the capital invested by private individuals  in works of a public nature, it is'equally  true that tho legislature should not oblige  any municipality to purchase' plants  which have no value woatever. It i*;  much better that the legislature should  leave the city of Nelson free to deal with  the Consumer's "Water Works company  if it 'withes to do so. than thai the city  should be forced by act of parliament to  purchase the entire 'plant of the company  before it could commence the work of constructing a water works system of its own.  If it happens that the system of the Consumer's Water Works company is altogether inadequate to the requirements of  the city, that surely is the fault of the  company and not of the people. It would  be rather difficult to convince the people  of Nelson lb the argument"that"in-"order'  that justice should, be done to the Consumer's Water Works company, the city  should be obliged to purchase a plant  which, when purchased, would be of no  use whatever to the city. The men who  invested in the stock of the. Consumer's  Water Works, company, took a business  chance, but tbey neglected to -improve  their.systcih so that it might be of some  use to the city in the event of incorporation. If they find themselves pinched,  they have themselves to blame.  1p the members of the provincial legis-  lure are alive to the interests of the chief  industry of this province, they will take  some action before the close of the present session with a view to the protection  of minitig. Throughout the east it is generally believed that the McKinley administration will re-impose the former McKinley tariff of one and a half cents per'  pound upon lead ores, in place of the present duty of three quarters of a cent. The  ultimate effect of this will no doubt be  that the ores of . British Columbia will be  smelted in l.ritish Columbia, but in the  meantime the federal government should  be urged to lake some steps towards the  securing of a profitable market for the  product of the smelters anrl refineries.  The people of eastern Canada are not yet  fully alive to the importance of the mining industry. In order lo interest them  in the matter British Columbians should  show that they themselves are very much  interested. This movement could be  nicely st:irted on its way if the provincial  legislature were to memorialize the federal government to appoint a commission  or eoinmi ..--ionei's to secure information  with respect to the Dominion's chance of  supplying lead and silver consuming  countries with the refined product-of its  mines. The government has been forced  to adopt this practice with respect to the  farmers of the Dominion and should have  no hesitation in adopting the same policy  in dealing with mining interests. Silver  and lead can be produced as cheaply in  the  Dominion  as  iu   the  United States,  and with an outlet for the product, home  smelting will-soon bo a feature of the  mining industry of British Columbia. The  success of the mining industry means too  much to this province and lo tlie Dominion to allow it to suffer without putting  forth an effort in its behalf. " There are  three smelters in southern Kootenay ca-.  pable.of handling the bulk of the output  of the. mines, and if the federal government took the matter up at.once the mining industry of the Dominion could be  rendered independent of tho tariff changes  of the United States, before they could be  given force of law. Here is the chance  for tho provincial legislature and for the  provincial members of the house of commons. . _ _  The heavy shipments from the mines of  West Kootonay is having a noticeable  effect upon the trade figures of the Dominion. For the first seven months of  the piosent fiscal j'ear, the exports of the  Dominion show an increase of over six  million dollars over tlie corresponding  period of the previous year, although the  imports show a decrease of over one million and a 'quarter. The bulk of this increase in- the exports is directly due to  the output of the mines of this district.  The imports for the district have also  very greatly increased -fully To per coi.it---  so that it can be readily be seen that were  it not for West Kootenay, the federal  government's trade figures would be much  less encouraging than Ihey are. The imports were $(io,5S(.,(il 1, compared with  $(i(..S-I I,?.)."., or a decrease for the present  year of $1.238,lol. The duty collected for  the seven months was $11.1-.1,-108, as compared with Sl],-) 15,773 in 1S9(3, or a decrease of $811,313 in the revenue. For  1897 the. exports were $80,002,0-10, compared with $80,-144,078 for the same time  in 180(5. There was an increase in the aggregate, trade of the Dominion of $4,882,-  -11-1. Exports for the month of January  were $7,400,201, compared with $S,020,63_  for January, 1800, and the duty collected  was $1,417,71(5, as compared with $1,000,045  for January, 1800, or a. decrease of over  half a in 111 ion dol lars.  Tin-: Turner government has appointed  Dr. George Duncan secretary off the provincial board of health. When the general elections wei c in progress Dr. Duncan was in charge of the quarantine station at Victoria, in order to insure the  return of Colonel Pi ior aud Thomas Earle  he neglected his duties and allowed people from the quarantine to go to the polls  and vote. For this he was promptly dismissed, but the ring that he served control the provincial .���government and they  are trying to even things up by giving  him the secretaryship of the provincial  board of health.  C. O. Lai.ondi. has beeu requested by  over one hundred citizens of Rossland to  be a candidate for the oflice of chief magistrate, and he has accepted. The people  of Nelson are all talking politics, but it is  too early to risk a guess as to the probable candidates. Up to the present all interest has centered on mayoralty probabilities. ���        .  Thk provincial legislature decided.on  Monday that it would take no action in  the matter of the vicious Corliss amendment, recently passed by the United  States senate with a view to pinching a  few Canadians along the eastern border,  .who find ' employment "in the United  States. The subject was introduced by  H. D. Helmcken, who moved that the  lieutenant-governor beasked to communicate with the Dominion government,  urging upon it "the desirability of mak-  " ing such representations to the presi-  " dent of the "United States of America as  " will prevent the passage, of said alien  ���" labor law, and thus render protective  " incisures by this legislature unueces-  "saiy." Such a resolution could not be  passed by any self-respecting legislature  in Canada. It is beneath the dignity of  the Dominion of Canada to ask any favors  of the -president of the United States. If  government of the United States passes  anti-Canadian legislation, it must be.presumed that the niembers of that government understand the effect of such legislation. The government of Canada has  the option of retaliating in kind, or of ignoring such unneighborly legislation altogether. .Tiik Tuii-1'NK is of the opinion  that had the Corliss amendment become law, the Dominion government  would pass just such a bill against citizens of the l'nited States. When the  manhood ot Canadians i.s attacked, the  .people of Canada will not bo -'soft-  soaped into passing over tlie insult in  order that the Canadian interests of several hundred Americans may not suffer.  Tliere was petty selfishness behind the  Michigan man who introduced the Corliss  amendment. There is the same.selfishness  behind the Spokane people who last week  were patting British Columbians ou the  back in the hope that they would not  retaliate.           Thk story that Judge Forin has passed  upon tlie validity of the title of Messrs.  Harris and Sproat to tlie townsite of Sandon was without foundation. The story  was built up upon a chance remark made  by the court, that he could not understand how the owners of a mineral claim,  the surface of which had been reserved,  had any rights to the surface for other  than mining purposes. The court did not  inquire into the matter of the title of  Messrs. Sproat and Harris and did uot  pass upon it in any manner whatever.  WHY   YOUNG   MEN   DON'T   MARRY.  "W^hy young men don't marry?"' is the  question which Hev. Harold Bolce endeavors to answer in a recent issue of the  San Francisco l.xamiucr. This is the way  he gets at the problem: 1 wish to comment exclusively upon the multitudes of  young eligibles who have the necessary  assets to meet conjugal demands, but  who elect to remain single. It is of the  thousands of young men who, having  either the money to support a wife or the  ability lo make it, find their social delights  along paths that do'not lead to the altar  that I write. What I have Lo say is not  cynical or speculative. , It is actual knowledge of young men in university life, in  clubs, and iu the general world of business  and professions.  To the man who knows society, who observes and reflects, the explanation of al!  this single unblessedness is apparent. The  way of the modern young man leads  straight to a knowledge of the world. He  does not wait until serpents show him the  forbidden fruit. That delectable temptation no longer grows on a single tree.  Whole acres, vast orchards, entire plantations are devoted to its cultivation.  The moralist who knows no tiring of the  electric hours in artistic but proscribed  Bohemia, or of the dimmer revelry in thai-  more dubious land of pleasure known as  "the tenderloin," is a babe in the woods.  His ethics, his homilies, his fine scorn, all  his deductions are unreal. He sees  through a halo, darkly. He has a vague  idea that Circe entices "our.: youth" from  the orthodox paths that lead to monogamy, and iu his noble rage thunders  against "ihe evils of modern society."  Meanwhile the unmarried unwoL-thies  smile in a patronizing way at the frantic  moralist, aud press the button forauotlier  round of allurement.  The more experience young men enjoy  in free Bohemia the more uninviting to  them is that ethical Philistia whose horizon is narrow and streaked with portents  of doom; and the more striking grows the  contrast betweeu the cold and chiseled  ideals of the "upper world"' and the lifelike forms that grace its warmer counterpart. And the greater the participation  a young man shares in the song and  laughter and fellowship of this lime-lit  world the less inclined he is to wed a  stern little moralist and delegate lo her  the right to hold him to strict accounting  for all his deeds done in the lights antl  shadows. Robert Louis Stevenson had  this in mind when he wrote that "to wed  is to domesticate the recording angel."  Who is to blame? It is upo. a-question  of censure. It is a study of sociology.  Tlie young man is determined to have  freedom. He is knowing. Were he to  wed a girl from his sister's set he would'  be allying himself with a child who would  know nothing of his life, his deeds, his  predilections. The marriage, certificate  would be a contract wherein he had  pledged himself for all time to provide a  home for, and1 share" it'with, an uninformed companion who would inflict upon  him her unphilosophic,conjectural notions  of right and wrong���a standard fashioned  upon copy book commonplaces and vague,  seminary ethics.  Avoiding this perpetual thorn to which  the marriage ties would bind hini fast, he  finds-''companionship in other circles  wherein the airs of superior wisdom and  loftier ethics do not annoy. He cultivates  harsh or gentler souls, according as his  own fiber is. Sometimes he-makes lasting  friendship's, sometimes , he loves, sometimes he enjoys devotion, and he abides  confident in the faith that no spirit of  outraged sanctity will disturb his dream  of freedom.  Many young men believe that genius is  restricted by marriage. A talented friend  said to me, speaking-of-the denouncement  of Zaugwill's story of "The Master." that  the great painter should not have returned to the plebeian bondage of his  home, but should have continued his alliance with the cultivated woman who  shared his intellectual pleasures in the  world ot art.  "For," said my friend, "brains are  scarce and women are not."'  Gold Mining in East Kootenay.  Gold mining in East Kootenay is gaining ground every day. New finds are being' constantly made and old abandoned  placer properties are being again worked.  On Wild Horse creek tlie Invicta Company will employ a large number'of men,  their new hydraulic plant is in fine condition and as soon as the weather will permit active operations will commence.  The Nip aud Tuck Company are also in  belter condition for work, and can take  advantage of an early season. : The China  Company are ready i'or work, a new flitch  lias been constructed by this company  .during the winter. The Berry creek gold  fields will receive considerable attention  as soon as the season will permit. 'Several companies have been developing  their properties during the winter, quite  a number of prospects have been sold, a  road will be built to Perry creek as soon  as possible, to bring in niachinry. On  Weaver creek an outfit has worked all  winter on some deep placer diggings, several mines in this vicinity have been sold,  others bonded, and considerable machinery will be brought in at an early date.  On Bull river three outfits have been engaged in putting in wing dams, to enable  thein to work their ground success fully in  the spring. The Perry Creek Placer Mining Company will resume operations early  in the spring. Considerable capital has  been subscribed lor the purpose of putting  in a new hydraulic plant.

Tlie other morning two commuters entered into an animated conversation relative to the expenses attendant upon living  in the suburbs. The new commuter said  to his companion, an old commuter:  "The bills out here are about as long as  the bills of those quaint South American  wadinj; birds that look as they could be  trained to plug holes in porous plasters at  a range of twenty feet. How do the people ever meet them?"'  '���They meet them so seldom," replied  the old commuter, "that they have to be  introduced, like strangers. Then they  pay.a little on account, to malce the dealer  happy. The less they pay hi in the happier he is. If they p-iy him forty dollars  oil.,a. one-hundred' dollar account he sees  the future studded with diamond*-, and  swaddled with sealskin sacfjues. If they  pay in full, and pay in cash, he frowns  upon them, because tlie <-pol cash man is  the wolf that sits at his door, like a ram-  pantsheriff, and discourses weird melodies  of woe that causes him to wring his hands  like so many cellars on wash-day, and express his feelings, embroidered with arabesques of salt and bitter tears. Vou see,  when it comes to charging, the suburban  dealers are like so many soldiers in action. Iu fact, their wagons are drawn by  chargers. And they charge so much,  when yon don't know how recklessly the  servant is ordering, and how prodigally  she is wasting, and what commission she  is receiving, that you might as well leave  your house at eight in the morning to  catch the seven-forty train on the fly. or  on the first bounce, for that matter, as to  catch up ,vith their bills. Let them once  get ahead of you���give them the smallest  kind of a handicap���aud they will keep  there and gain on you uutil the only way  you can save yourself is to go into busi-  with them. And they will get you so  badly mixed up in the seasons that you.  will go wild. In July you will be paying  for the coal that wouldn't heat your house  last winter, and when you are eating  their peaches you will be squaring up lor  the buckwheat cakes of last January. In  January, when you are eating sausage,  you are paying for last summer's mosquito screens. In the fall you are drinking cider and paying for the sharpening  of the lawn mower last spring. And in  the spring you are eating shad and paying for the logs laid in for the open fireplace last November. They never let you  catch, victory from them. You might  catch diplhc-ria, but victory, never. They  always charge the top price for the bottom quality, and the scales and the books  don't always balance your way.

Sequel,  lie suit, hid inline was .Meeks, antl it  sLi'iicIc thoughtful ones in Buffalo Horn  that the patronymic was singularly appropriate; for the gentleman himself was  a mild-eyed, "canrly-lorkin"' little man,  with a self-depreea Lory air that suggested  a standing apology on his part for presuming to exist. He floated into town  quietly, and so unobtrusive and modest  was he that it was several days before  his presence began to be noticed, and only  on account of a rumor that had gained  circulation to the ell'ect that he,was an  oflicer of the l'nited States secret service.  T hen B u IVa 1 o 11 o r n i tes smiled. O f co 11 rse.  like all western people, they understood  that it is not best to judge from appearances: but, oh! what a chump l-U-le Sam  must be. to send a wee biL of a man like  this to arrest an Oklahoma malefactor!  To be sure, nobody had the temerity fo  suggest this io _Mr. Meek.. There are  communities in wliich the one who per-  sumes upon' appearances is taking very  long chance.--, and Buffalo Horn was one  of i,hese. Therefore, Mr. Meeks was  treated with great .show of respect by all  the leading citizens, who squared things  with themselves by privately giving him  t he "horse-laugh." And, all unconscious,  Mr. i\leeks kept on'his way. or, rather,  stayed where he was a.nd lay in wait for  some certain cri._iin.ai who was wanted  for violating a score, more or less,-of the  federal statutes.  Iu strictest''.-confidence, and with childlike faith, lie had imparted more or less  J'nlorination concerning his mission to  Mart Winslow, the landlord of the little  hotel where ho staying- -and MarL being,  after the manner of his kind, an inveterate gossip, soon spread what information  he had gleaned from the stranger, thereby  causing abroad grin to appear whenever  . his guest was mentioned.  "Oh, but ain't'e easy V" chuckled Mart  to a couple of friends, one day, as he  liodded towards the bar-room, where- Mr.  Meeks was engaged in "settin"'em up" to  the ever ready crowd. 'T)' ye ever see  sech a sucker? Comes yere an' 'xpec's th  duck 'e's layin' fer t' lope right iuLuh th'  cam]) an'give'isself up, 1 s'pose; so yere  e stays, diggiu' up fifteen a week f'r board  an'speudiu'copious at th'bar. Oh, I c'n  stand it awhile."  '.Gawd!.- S'posin th' man sh'd come in,  all  of a.-suddint?" said Jim  Wylie,  the  city marshal. '"Say, I bet'e'd die o' scare!"  "Who is it tli' little feller wants, Mart'*1  asked some one sitting by the window.  "Sh-h-h! Easy, Frank. Oh, Id'no', not  now. But I'll bet ye one thing���'.ain't  nobody he's a-goin t' ketch right off."  it came to be rumored, within a day or  two, that "Kingfisher" Williams was the  man Mr. Meeks was after, this rumor being based upon the fact that the little  man had been���very quietly, of course-  making enquiries concerning that notorious person, whom numerous county and  nationiil officers were more or less anxious  to meet. He was not known personally  to any one in Buffalo Horn, but Mr. Wylie  assured the little man that "Kinglisher"  Williams was a very bad man indeed, aud  that if Mr. Meeks eifected his capture, it  will be a great feather in his cap���whereupon the little man swelled up considerably and invited Mr. Wylie to join him at  the bar.  it was about a week after this conversation that the secret service officer aud  the city marshal were standing in the  bar-room, discussing ��� some question or  other, when the door opened anil a  stranger entered and called for whisky.  .Meeks was looking earnestly upwards into the big marshal's face as the stranger  entered, but withdrew his ga/,e for a  moment to glance at the newcomer. Then  he reached for his revolver.  "There's my man," he remarked, calmly,  in an undertone to the marshal. "Get  back from the bar, please."  Wylie, dumbfounded, did as he was  bidden, in time to see the stranger look  u-p' just as Mr. Meeks got him covered.  "Hands up, Mr. Williams!" commanded  the little man.    "I want you!"  With an oath, the other "drew," and  for a few seconds there was a confusion  of shots, in which the city marshal could  take no part by reason of his revolver  getting stuck and refusing to come forth.  Then the stranger threw up both hands  in token of surrender.  "Have you ���er-a pair of handcuffs, Mr.  Wylie?" asked Mr. Meeks. "Put'em on  him, please. Sorry, Mr. AVilliams, but I  can't take any chances with you."  Williams did not answer, but growled  angrily under his breath as he submitted  to being handcuffed.  ."I'll git you for this!" he said to Wylie,  as the latter stepped back after finishing  the operation.  "Oh, ye will, will ye? Wait ontell my  friend, Mr. Meeks,  gets through 'ith  ye.  Mr. Williams," was the cheerful reply.  " Wan' t' put'im in th'cooler?" asked  the marshal, presently.  "No, thanks. He'll bunk with  night, and tomorrow we leave,  obliged, all the same."  It was not more than- an hour before  everyone in Buffalo Horn knew that little  Mr. Meeks had, single-handed, captured  the notorious "Kingfisher" Williams,  after which nobody was hurt; and the  general sentiment was of the "Well, I'll  be dog-goned !" variety.  That night Mr. Meeks had a levee and  blushingly received the congratulations  of the best citizens ol" Buffalo Horn during  a period of two hours, while his now  staunch friend, Jim Wylie, obligingly  guarded the desperate prisoner. Had he  been a less temperate man, he might have  retired somewhat the worse for liquor, as  did most of the citizens of Buffalo Horn;  but he kept his wits about him and was  as sober as his'prisoner'when they turned  in.  Next morning, a half-score of leading  citizens had sufficiently lecovered from  the night's revelries to accompany him  and his prisoner to Kour-mile creek. This  honor was modestly protested against by  the little man. who seemed not to see  that he had done anything remarkable,  but he was hooted down, and when they  reached Four-mile his escort parted from  him with three rousing cheers and a volley of revolver shots by way of salute.  It was about I o'clock in the afternoon  when an excited, hatlessman, mounted on  a panting horse that dripped with perspiration, dashed up to the Hotel Winslow,  in front of whicli a number of citizens  were discussing the events of the day anil  night previous, and hoarsely announced:  "Kingfisher-���he's killed 'im !"  "What? Who?" asked Winslow.  "What ye talk in' about, man?" ri  The stranger was gasping for breath,  but presently managed to explain that,  twenty miles south, ho had been resting  under a tree by a stream, when a little  ..man and a, big man, whom he had known  in Kingfisher as "Kingfisher" Williams,  came along and dismounted near by. The  little man was leaning over to get a drink  when Williams sneaked up and struck  him down with his handcuffs. After  this, said the stranger, he saw Williams  take the keys from the little man's pocket  and unlock his handcuffs. Then he shot  the insensible victim with the hitter's  own gun, mounted, and rode away; and  the new comer hurried into Buffalo'Horn  the faster because AVilliams caught sight  of him a.s he was leaving and took a few  shots at him.  "W'y didn't ye shoot back--'r else git  th' drop on 'im w'en 'c hit little Meeks wi'  th' bracelets?" asked Jim Wylie, fiercely.  "'Cause, iu the first place, _ didn't thikn  'e'd kill th'man. Second"���and thestranger  eyed Wylie quizzically���"I reckon ye  hain't real well acquainted 'ith Kingfisher  Williams, be ye?"  Inless than an hour the little town was  practically depopulated of men, all but  the cashier of the local bank and a few  bar-tenders having gone on the warpath  to catch and hang Ivinfigsher Williams for the murder of Mr. Meeks.  The stranger did not accompany them,  his horse being blown and himself not being anxious to meet Mr. Williams. However, it made no difference, as everyone  knew the ford which the stranger said  was the scene of the tragedy.  Thus, nearly everyone gone southward  to mete out'justice to the alleged murderer  of Mr. .Meeks, it was really child's play  for that gentleman 'and-'Mr-.. Williams,  emerging from their, hiding place in the  hills just, north of the town, and joiuiug  the stranger who had brought the news,  to loot the bank, three stores, the hotel,  and every saloon in the place, and to get  safely away on fresh horses at least three  hours before the pursuit could be  organized. . e  And that is why every officer whose  business takes him into Buffalo Horn and  neighboring towns is looked upon with  suspicion until his credentials are  approved.
