 X  '*,  ��� l>  Has Mines that are Paying .Dividends and Hundred1; of Properties /that can  be Made  Dividend  Paying Mines.  FIFTH  YEAR-NO. 25.  :   NELSON   BRITISH  COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY,  MAY   15, 189:  Has   Three  Smelters   in   Successful  Operation*  and  Enough   Ore  in Sight ,to   Run  Several   More.  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR.  NO SYMPATHY   FOR   SQUATTERS.  The Government Seems Inclined to Push Them  as Hard as It Possibly Can.  The short debate upon tlie second reading of the government's bill for the eviction of the squatters upon government  lots in the city of Nelson did not disclose  any intention on the part of the government to deal fairly with such of the squatters as have erected substantial dwellings  .upon tlie government lots.  When the bill came up for its second  reading Mr. Hume objected to it as unnecessary on the ground that the government had.suflicient authority to deal with  the squatters as the law stood at present.  Ml*. Kellie interposed on behalf of ,the  squatters and asked the government what  the position would be of those who had  built upon the government lots. He asked  why tlie government could not rent the  ground to the squatters instead of turning them off and causing them to lose  the improvements they had put.upon the  land.  These very reasonable interrogations  were,passed over by the membersrof the  cabinet, and the second reading was carried ou a division of Hi to 7. When'the  house went into committee on the bill  Mr. Hume pressed the government i'or an  answer to the question as to what course  would be adopted in the case of squatters  who had made substantial improvements.  He asked if the government intended to  compensate the squatters for their improvements.  Attorney-general Eberts replied that  the government did not. The government  had sent out notice to the squatters to  leave the lands in order to secure the  crown's title. Without any further explanation the bill was reported and put  through its final stages. <���  SHORT   BITS   OF   NEWS   PROM   KASLO.  Kaslo is to have at least a portion of the  additional hotel accommodation which it  so much needs. Tlie proprietors of the  Kaslo have an addition to their present  house well under way, and will rush it to  .completion as fast as possible. 1). M.  Linnard. of "Hossland, purchased a couple  lots on Krone .street the other day and  will build a hotel of forty rooms, which  has already been leased to Daniel Shaw,  also of Hossland. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw are  now in the city, and will manage the uew  house in a first-class manner.  The steamer International was in hospital during two or three clays of the  earlier part of the week, being fitted with  new connecting rods. She resumed her  place ou the Kelson route ou Wednesday  evening. .In her down, trip on. the'same  day she took a cargo of ore from the  sampling works, which sank her hull well  nigh to the guards.  D. W. Moore, who has been visiting the  eastern   cities   of    Canada,  returned   to  Kaslo on Tuesday last. He is interested  in several 'mining properties, and while in  the east formed connections which will  enable him to place this kind of property'  with advantage. Mr.-Moore left Kaslo in  company with John A. Whittier, president and manager of the Goodenoiigh  mines, who was married at Charleston,  Massachusetts, on the 20th day of April  last, to Miss Ellen Fraser. Mr. atid'Mrs.'  Whittier are expected to reach Kaslo  this week, and will make the city their  home.  Hamilton Byers will build a forty foot  addition to his new premises on, Front  street. His hardware business has so extended as to require additional accommo-  tion. '."-'���-:  The executive committee to which was  entrusted the preparation of a program'  for the queen's birthday celebration, have  completed the first draft of a list of events  for the two days sports. On Monday the  24th, there will be sailing and horse races,  with a base ball game between the Kaslo  and Spokane nines in the evening. The  second day's entertainment will comprise  Caledonian sports in the morning and a  regetta in the afternoon. The drilling  contest will commence at S o'clock, and  should be the feature of the day, as it is  hoped there will be a large 'number of  contestants. There will be also a tug of  war, in which Kaslo will meet all comers.  The celebration will conclude with a grand  bail, in which all visitors will be invited  to take part.  Charles Melson aud Rory McLeod have  sold the mineral claim Jessie A, situate in  the Hoc Springs camp, to Charles A.  Conner of Spokane. They receive $250 as  a consideration for the claim.  O. G. Labaree, of Nelson, records another prospecting agreement. The parties to the present arrangement are T. I-I.  Wilkin and L. S. Cass. They are to work  in East and West Kootenay, and Mr. Labaree is to handle the properties which  they may locate. Hon. AV. B. Ives and It.  H. Pope of Compton, are also interested  in the agreement.  Lot Willey's new hotel at Bear lake was  burned to the ground on Thursday afternoon. Much of tlie furniture was saved,  but in a badly broken condition. It is  reported to have caught from a stove pipe  in the kitchen addition. Mr. and Mrs.  Willey were in the city on AVednesday  and only reached home an hour or two  before the fire.  and stealing a revolver and some other  articles. At that time he shot himself in  the hand with the pistol. This time he  was arrested in the Lake View house and  is charged with having stolen a suit of  clothes from one of the'lodgers, and secreted them under the bed in the' room  where he was arrested.  Alexander McKenzie has withdrawn  from the city's police force, and will devote his time to developing some mineral  claims near the Columbia river in which  he is interested. James Weir has been  appointed to the vacant place.  Messrs. Green brothers have let a contract for the construction of a new building on Front street, a few doors from  Fifth street, which they will utilize as a  postoffice when furnished.  Word has been received from the district passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific railway at Vancouver that special '  rates on the company's steamers will be  given those visiting this city on the occasion of the birthday celebration. The  company's local representatives were  much aggrieved because a different announcement was made and the company  scored because of its alleged churlishness.  Forwarded with the "acfto amend the  mineral act, 1SU0," is an extract from the  "company's act, ,1807," relating to the free  miner's certificate to be issued to joint  stockcompanies, and providing that-such  certificates shall not be issued for more  than one year, and that those already  issued shall "expire on the 30th day of  June, 1S07." This extracts purports to be  section 23 of the "companies act." A diligent search of-the act, "certified correct  as passed third reading," fails to disclose  the provision.    AVas there an omission?  A New Engineering and Mining Firm.  Morris, McLean 6c Company is the name  the name and style of a new mining and  engineering   linn   which   was formed  in  Nelson this week.    The  personnel  of the  firm gives it the stamp of a rustling combination, which it will be hard to beat in  general engineering and  mining business.  The head of the firm i.s D. Morris, a civil  and   hydraulic   engineer,   formerly  with  the Columbia  6c AVestern  .Railway company   at   Traih    For  several  years   Mr.  Morris  has given  hydraulic engineering  his especial attention.    He came to this  city from   Hossland, after having put in  the water works system in that city. The  second member of the firm is- W.-:G:-McLean, who is well known throughout the  province and the west as a .successful railway contractor.    During the recent  lull  in railway construction iu the past three  years Mr. McLean has given his attention  to mining, during which time he has succeeded iu placing several properties with  moueyed syndicates.    Mr. McLean brings  a local knowledge to the firm, which will  be invaluable.    It. E. Lemon, of this city,  who was.al-o among the lirst comers in  southern    Kootenay,  makes   the    third  member of the firm.    Though he has been  but one.year in  the mining business exclusively, he   has already a considerable  clientage, so that the new firm   will  not  have to wait for its  business to come in.  Norman A. Mackenzie completes the quartette which makes up the firm.    Mr. Mackenzie is also a Rossland  man.    He got  into Rossland early in the boom, aud enjoyed a very large measure of success as a  mining broker. . He is the youugest member   of  the   firm,  aud   a   great   hustler..  Messrs. Morris, McLean 6c Company have  taken a suite of three rooms in the CIe-<  meuts  6c Hillyer  block  and are  having  them suitably fitted up.  RESOURCES   OF   THE   BIG   BEND.

Nason.  Those who have resided in this province  for any length of time and have heard the  repeated tales of the wonderful richness  of the Big Bend district have no doubt  often wondered  why a district of such  marvelous  richness  should remain  stagnant.    True it  is  that  the   district   has  lacked transportation facilities, but in a  district so rich as the Big Bend has been  represented to be, it was not unreasonable  to expect that this difficulty would be in a  measure overcome.     Yet the Big Bend  has remained stagnant, and if what Frank  L. Nason says concerning it be true it is  not likely to have any great revival until  some of its mineral richness is discovered.  Nason is not a blackmailing tramp newspaper man.   He is an experienced mining  man who has had considerable actual experience in  the Big Bend, aud  for  this  reason his account of  the district, as it  appears in the  Engineering and Mining  Journal, should carry some weight.    Concerning the mines and prospects thus far  openeel along the Columbia and  in  the  Big Bend he says:  About 12 miles from Revelstoke, iu Jordan pass, two prospectors are engaged in  developing a large vein of galena aud  pyrite. The vein is reported to be from  5 feet to 15'feet in width and to have a  streak of solid galena about three feet  thick. The remainder of the vein is concentrating ore.. The galena is reported to  carry from 10 to 20 ounces of silver, aud  gold in the mixed pyrites from $1 to $10  gold per ton. This prospect is located in  the gold range and is the only prospect  reported on the west side of the river below Smith creek, (50 miles above Revelstoke.  Along the trail which follows up the  east bank of the Columbia the first mining of any kind is a small bar digging  about four miles from Revelstoke. This  has been worked principally by Chinamen and from them no definite information is to be gained. From the fact that  the bar is ouly worked intermittently it  is to be inferred that it is not very rich.  Pannings by the writer showed a good  deal of fine gold confined to a gravel  stratum about two feet to four feet thick  and yielding from 10 to 50 cents a yard.  It may be remarked that this claim or bar  is typical of dozens of such places along  the river. These bars are not in a position to makehydraulickin.? pos i ile, lying  at river level at high water, and their  gold content aud extent do not warrant  the use of dredgers.  Twenty-eight   miles above  Revelstoke  is Games   creek.    For at least  10 years-  there   have   beeu    '"snipers"   who   have  earned a living by washing shallow bars,  and, in low water,  building wing dams,  thus partially turning the stream, and recovering the gold-bearing gravel "sniped"  from the bared stream bed.   The gold  is  course, of fine quality, bringing from $1S  to $18.50 an  ounce, and  is   beaten   into  shapelss masses, showing that it has traveled for a considerable distance.   Every  rise of water takes out  the crude wing  dams aud sluices, but with, recurring low  water these are put iu again and the same  ground  worked  over.    This shows  that  gold is still running in the stream.   There  are benches or terraces rising from 50 to  100 feet above the level of the stream, but  "confined as they are in a narrow  canon  they are not extensive enough to warrant  the putting in of a hydraulic plant, nor  are they  rich enough  to  pay-for hand  work.     Numerous    tunnels   have    been  driven in these benches in order to strike  the vein  rock, which  has  been  done  in  many instances, but the yield'of gold has  not been sufficient to warrant extensive  work.   The work has been done entirely  by prospectors; many of the tunnels having been driven at least thirty years ago.  The gravel from the''grass (roots" down  carries   gold.    In  the autumn  of .1800 a  large block of claims Were staked out and  sold  to Seattle parties, but  when examined by an engineer, they wereabandoned  as uufit for hydraulicking.  Five miles above the mouth of Games  creek, from where it empties into the  Columbia, a large vein of mineral was  discovered in 1805. Eight claims have  been located ou this veiu and development  work was begun in JSUfi. A tunnel has  been driuen in over 50 feet, the vein at  this point being about 10 feet wide. There  is no free gold in the ore, which consists  of iron pyrites, arsenical pyrites, chalco-  pyrite, galena and other sulphides. The  assay value of the ore as it comes from  the tunnel is $10 to $20 a ton.  . Twelve miles above Games creek is  Boyd's ranch. On the top of a mountain  ten miles east of this ranch another group  of claims has been located. The character  of the ore and its assay value is the same  as the vein on Games creek.  Five miles from this ranch Downie  empties into the Columbia river. This  creek is also flanked by benches or terraces, of which all the gravels carry some  gold, while a thin stratum carries 25 cents  to $1 a yard, ft is too thin, however, to  work by tunneling, and hydraulicking is  impossible' for the same reason as at  Carnes creek. Several auriferous sulphide  claims have been located up this creek,  but little or no work has been done on  them, certainly not enough to determine  either the size or the value of the prospects, though high hopes are entertained  of them.  Between Downie creek and Gold Stream,  a distance of 17 miles, no work of any importance has been done. Several bars in  the Columbia have been worked by white  men, notably Seven-mile bar, and many  more have been worked by Chinamen.  Around Gold Stream and its tributaries,  however, the deepest interest has been  centered.   Gold was first discovered here-  in about 1800 to 1805.    fn<lS05 two mining  companies,  or,  more properly speakinsr,  two  partnerships of prospectors, put in  extensive wine dams about one mile from  the month of Gold Stream.    A good many  ounces of coarse gold of fine quality had  been previously taken from the crevices  in the bed of the stream during low water  and  it i.s  believed   that  by  turning the  stream,  if  only   partially, good   results  would   be   obtained.     The    wing  'dams  which were put in cos.t about $5000, but  only about $2000 were recovered the following season, the bedrock, a white dolomite, being found to be worn almost perfectly smooth, with  no gravel  and only  now and then a coarse  nugget of gold.  The gravel in the benches on either side  of the stream carries gold in considerable  quantity,   but cannot   be   hydraulicked.  In  the northeastern  angle  between   the  Columbia and Gold Stream isan extensive  brush of gravel which i.s now being tested.  Considerable gold   is found,  the gravel  carrying as high as 25 cents a yard.    The  principal difficulty is lack of water under  head.  Four miles above the mouth of Gold  Stream a tributary, Camp creek, flows in.  Considerable gold has been found on this  stream and within the past two years  several attempts have been made by prospectors to sink a shaft to. bedrock, and  tunnel under the stream ou bedrock.  Though the gravel from the surface down  shows gold it was not theiutention to hydraulic the stream, but only, to work it as-  adrift or bedrock diggings*. The appliances for handling the water were crude,  quicksauds were encountered and the  shaft was then abandoned.  Fight miles up'Gold stream, another  tributary stream, McCuIlough creek, has  iu the past produced a great amount of  placer gold. Extensive works were  .planned and .some hydraulic pipe was  brought on the grounel when trouble over  the division of the output of the mine  arose, and the property has been idle ever  since awaiting the action of the courts.  Three miles above this claim is another on  which persistent efforts have been made  to reach bedro.ck. The effort was successful in the autumn of 1890, but very little  gold was found. The gravel above, over  100 feet thick, is reported to be very rich.  Nuggets have been found worth from $5  to $7, together with much fine gold.  Three   miles   above  McCuIlough  creek  French creek comes in.    This is die most  fatuous stream in the Big Bend.    It i.s reported to have produced gold to the value  of from $100,000 to $1,000,000.   There is no  way of verifying these reuorts.today, but  the traces of former occupation and work-  are   everywhere   extant.    Long   tunnels  are driven into the  benches, shafts sunk.  ������111 d ruins of scores of log cabins aud mining tools mark scenes oi stirring activity  about thirty years ago.    The richness  of  the gravels left easily leads one to believe  that  there  were  bars  of great, richness  when   the   place   was    first'.discovered.'  Within the past ten years there has been  at least six different claims worked, principally   as   bar   or creek  diggings.    One  company has sunk a shaft 50 feet deep to  bedrock and  has  run  extensive tunnels  u ider the bed  of the stream.   The gold  produced is coarse, probably 50 per cent  of it being nuggets worth from $1   to $50,  though only two of the latter value have  been found.    The remainder of the gold  occurs in 5 to 50 cent nuggets.    Several of  these claims have  been recently consolidated and an extensive,hydraulic plant is  to.be put in this spring.  Almost directly opposite the mouth of  Gold stream another auriferous creek  empties into the Columbia. This stream,  Smith creek, was worked, on the surface  only, in the "early days," 1800 to 1805, and  some very rich bars-have been found.  Latterly: two companies of miners have  made attempts to sink shafts to beelrock,  without success. Au American company  has now taken possession and will thoroughly prospect it with the viewof putting in a hydraulic 'plant.- In the upper  angle between the Columbia river and  Smith creek, another American company  has the distinction.of putting in the first  hydraulic plant in the Big Bend. This  piant was in operation in 1800.  The Big Bend country has been known  to be auriferous for the last thirty years  or more. The country was pretty well  traversed by prospectors in the early days,  but, with the exception of the finds on  French creek, no diggings were found  that could be worked at a profit with ac-  cessso difficult and supplies so high. Even  now practically the only prospecting that  has beeu done lias been on streams emptying into the Columbia river, and only a  few. miles from their mouths. Again  prospecting has been confined almost exclusively to auriferous gravels, little or  no attention being paid to ledges. In  mining the gravels of the streams, not  only of-these on which placers are being  worked, but on others as well, there is  found among the black sands a liberal  sprinkling of galena. Considering how  soft and triable this mineral is.it seems  as it must have a pretty extensive source  in order to show as abundantly as it does.  In the lower sands, the "blue gravel" of  the Californians, there is also found much  pyrite, chalcopyrite and other sulphides.  These are .without exception, so far as tho  writer's experience goes, auriferous.  Whether tliese auriferous and argentiferous sulphides come from extensive and  workable veins or from small stringers,  no one is yet able to say for certain. With  the three exceptions quoted on Carnes  creek, Downie, and back of Boyd's ranch.,  no sulphide deposits have been located.  Near Smith creek several irregular veins  in hydro-mica slate have been found to  carry gold in their iron sulphides, but noj  large workable veins have been found.  In one instance, however, the placer  gold lias been traced up the stream to its  source and a large ii umber of claims located on ledges.    Prospecting was begun at  the  mouth  of McCuIlough  creek.     Gold  was found iu flattened, hammered scales.  Higher up the stream  these characteristics began, to disappear, the gold had more  quartz and vein matter attached to it and  at the head of the stream the gold  was  found as if just, loosened from its matrix,  in many cases having soft slate still adhering.    A  little  higher  up,   in  what is  known as Ground Hog, basin, the parent  lodes were found.    These ledges are veins  of quartz running through the soft hydro-  mica slate which forms the country rock.  The gold conies free in the 'quartz and is  also free in the slate of the contact walls  as well as in the included masses' of slate  in the vein.' Sulphides of iron occur in  varying percentages,  all carrying gold.  Some veins are found consisting of almost  solid   iron    pyrites.     Several   companies  have staked the section pretty thoroughly  and  are now developing  the  prospects.  As French, McCuIlough and Camp creeks  rise in nearly.the same mountain, it.seems  more than probable that this is the source  of their gold.  Owing to the difficulties of gaining access to the mountains, but little thorough  ���prospecting has been done save for placer  gold. Then, too, the successful development Of mines in the lower country has  attracted the attention of more prospectors. In the mountains of the Big Bend  snows come early and remain late, thus  practically limiting the season to. at the  most, three months���July August and  September. In spite of these drawbacks  it is the writer's opinion that a thorough  search in this section will'meet with great  success. Once a large mineral belt is developed, the government is very prompt  and liberal in-aiding mining enterprises  by opening and .maintaining good trails.-  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  NSW, OFFICERS   TO   BE ..APPOINTED.  Charles Van Ness, one of the owners of  the Grey Eagle claim, on Observation  mountain adjoining the townsite of Grand  Forks, has let a contract for a 50 foot tunnel on the property. '  The Hall mines tramway was started  up this week after having been completely  overhauled. Both sections of the tramway have been fitted with a new cable to  which, has been attached the new clips  designed by superintendent Painter.  These clips are fastened into the lieart of  the cable, and have an,immense advantage over the Ilallidie clip in that they  admit of a smoother running of the buckets and effect a considerable saving in the  matter of repairs and in the running time  of the tramway. The tramway is now  bringing down close upon 125 tons of ore  every 12 hours.  The advantages of incorporation are  manifest to such residents of Nelson as  happen to live off the main streets of the  city. Heretofore these people have had  neither sidewalks nor roads to their residences. Now severaiof them have both  roadways and sidewalks, while others are  in a fair way of securing .them. A fairly  good road has been made, on Mill street  and grading is now gointr on on Josephine  and Latimer streets. These roads will  not represent a very heavy expenditure,'  but theywill be of great convenience to  'the people living along them.  The customs collections of the port of  Nelson for the current month amount to  over $20,000 up to date. The indications  are that the collections for May will be  the heaviest in the history of the port.  J. Ogden Grahame, chief factor of the  Hudson's Bay Company, is in the city on  business. . ,  E.

The boat is KiO feet  long with Si) feet beam. She will make  her first trip within,ten days.  George K dd, who was in charge of the  Sandon branch of the Bank'of. British  North America, will have charge of the  new branch which the bank opened at  Slocan City on Monday.  A fire was put in the Hall Mines rever-  beratory furnace on Friday, for the purpose of ���cementing the. quartz bottom of  the furnace. The furnace was charged  with matte today, and the first metal will  be drawn from the furnace this evening.  The company has fi. large stock of matte  on hand, and will commence the shipment  of blister copper during the latter-part of  the present month. The roasters have  been working for the past two weeks.  The machinery for the Honeymau foiui-  dry and machine shop will arrive in Nelson from Portland this evening. If the  provincial government does not play the  dog in the manger witli a couple of vacant town-lots, Nelson will soon have a  machine shop in full swing.  To the wife of .1.

The Southern Portion of Kootenay to Have a  Sh'eriif and Official Administrator.  ' Southern Kootenay is steadily forcing  its claim- for due recognition upon the  provincial government. For years the  southern portion of the district has been  ���forced to content itself with an arrange-  whereby the sheriff and official administrator for the district were located in the  town of Donald, in the extreme north of  the district. Tne people of southern  Kootenay have chafed under the inconvenience of this arrangement I'or years,  but heretofore without effect.  This session, however, the government  passed a bill granting southern Kootenay  relief,    ft provides for further territorial  division of the province for judicial ami  other   purpose*5.    In   mo,ving" the second  reading   of    the    bill,,   attorney-geuerai/  Eberts said the  general tenor,of the bill/  was for the purpose of changing the confines   of  Kootenay.   There  has  been1 so'.  great an  influx of  population iuto  thii  portion of the county that it i.s necessary--  for the purpose of more effectually providing for the administration of justice  that   further officers be appointed her?.,  viz., a sheriff and an official administrator  As matters stood the sheriff for Fast ai/d  West Kootenay is at Donald, away upjM1  the northern part of this territory.    Ijy  this act a. new county of Kootenay is /to  formed, power being.given to the lieu'tf.,,-  ant-governor iu council to include witl,in  its limits such portions of the counties ,,f  Kootenay and Vale as may be deemed Expedient, and to appoint a "sheriff invested  with the power  necessary to carry on'his  office,   The same power is given in rc-.j'er-  ence to the position  of official   administrator.    The official administrator at: the  present time lives at Donald, and it is the  intention to appoint another adminif.cra-  tor iu the southern part of Kootenay in '  the neighborhood of Nelson, Rossland "and  Trail.   Personnel of Kaslo's Ball Team.  The players with whom the Kaslo base  ball club will enter the Washint*ton-Koot-  enay league have been selected, aud manager Berchess has about determined the  places to which he will assign.them.   The  aggregation    is    thus    placed:      Corliss  catcher; Hughes and Nash, pitchers; Bei\  chess, 1st base; Matthias, 2nd base; Ran-  kine, 3rd   base; Davy or Murphy, shortstop; Clark,  left  field: Murphy or Davy,  center field: Kaufi'man,  right field.   The  antecedents of some of the players may  be thus enumerated :   Corliss, the pitcher,  comes    from    Portland,   and    last   year  pitched for the Monogram club in the extended   Examiner  .tournament   of   that  year.    Nash  is also  from  Portland and  was a   member   of  the same club," and  played  in  the  tournament.    Hughes for  the second time played for the Victorians  last year in the''Pacific Northwest league,  which prematurely went to pieces.  Davy  and Clark played with tlie Seattle club in  the same league.   Rankiue also hails fiom  Portland and Kaufman comes from Spokane.    Both are good   players and hard  hitters, although they will come anew lo  work in  which they w^re not rpgularly  employed  last year.   Manager  Berehc��-s  has taken up a residence in  Kaslo, aud it  is   to   his   wide   acquaintance'-and.   experience in base ball affairs that the Ka.-Jo  club has  been  able to   get   together   so  strong   a   team.    Murphy  and   Matthias  have resided in this city for a considerable time, a.nd'are  known  to  be  reliable  players.    Those best able to judge declare  that the nine as thus constituted will enter the lists  with  very fair prospects of  taking a worthy place on  the score list,  even if they do not succeed  in   winning  the  trophy which  the   Kootenaian   will  award to the victorious nine in the league  series.        " ���''.':  SLOCAN   MININC*   NOTES.  George W. Hughes annouuees that so  soon as the snow disappears he will continue the McGuigan creek wagon road to  the Best basin. When this road is built,  the Best will be in shape to make regular  shipments. The road will also cheapen  the transportation-charges on the Rambler shipments.  The concentrator at the Washington  mine started up on Thursday of last week  and has been working steadily ever since  with mi abundance of water. A large  body of ore has been blocked out during  the winter's development work.  A block of 10.000 shares of Noble Five  mining stock was sold in Spokane on Saturday at 15 cents. The stock was purchased by Toronto people. Noble Five  stock was put on the market late last  summer at 25 cents, and has therefore  proved a good buy.  A rumor was current again this week  to the effect that the Pilot Bay smelter  would again start up, but inquiry failed  to establish the story as authentic. A. II.  Buchanan, of the Bank of Montreal, accompanied by the coast officials of the  bank, paid the smelter a vi.-it this week.  As the bank is largely interested in the  smelter the vi��it of tlie bank officials may  have started the story.  C. L. AVebb and associate*, of Seattle,  made the final payment of-.$15,000 on the  Montezuma on Friday. The payment was  not due until August H), but the pun havers considered the property .-nfiicient ly  developed to pay the amount and M-rme  their rebate. A concentrator and tiam-  way will be built at once.  The owners of the Lucky Jim will commence the building of lo.OOO feet of an  aerial tramway next week.

', The Ames Holden Co's special "Columbia,"  "Vancouver," "Kootenay" should be worn  by everybody who wants a first-class mountain boot.  _____________ i  SATURDAY MORNING MAY  If.. 1897  The action of the provincial government  in passing'the bill for the eviction of all  squatters upon crown lands, has a  lively  interest for those who have squatted upon  government lots in  this city.   There can  be   no   question   but   that  the  bill  was  framed for the especial purpose of driving  these people oil'.   When this bill becomes  law   the  government   will  have all  the  legal machinery necessary for driving the  squatters off without regard to any improvements   made.    It   is   not   desirable  that such action should be taken by the  government.    The circumstances  of   the  case do  not warrant it, and a resort to  force  on   the   part   of   the   government  might be met with  force on 'the part of  the squatters. This can be easily avoided,  and it is the duty of the government to  avoid  it.    The squatters  may  have put  themselves  in  a false position  in  going  upon  government lots, but  the government in  withholding the lots from  sale  retains  an   equally, false  position.    The  proper course for Lhe government to pursue is to put all its  property  within  the  limits of the city of Nelson up to sale.  The government could safeguard its interest by the upset price, and if the squatters  didnot protect their interests they would  have   themselves   to   blame.    Mow   that  Nelson is an incorporated city, it is not  right that the government should retain  over.-JOO town lots within  the city limits  and  refuse to  pay any  taxes  whatever  upon them.    Fairness demands that the  government dispose of these lots as soon  as possible.    It is not suggested that the  lots should be forced upon the  market,  but in a city where residential  property  is held so high that people will go upon  ��� government lots and expend hundreds of  dollars   in   improvements   without    any  shadow of a title, it is not unreasonable  to think that property when offered for  sale will bring a fair price.    It is difficult  for those unacquainted  with  the  conditions in Nelson to appreciate the position  of the squatters.   The press of the coast  is   inclined   to  look  upon  them  as  land  pirates, but in truth they are fairly honest  people, who, unable to pay a  fancy  price  for building lots to private holdeers, have  squatted upon government property and  improved the same upon the chance of being able to buy it in at a public auction  sale.    It is to be hoped, that the  government will exercise good judgment in  this  matter.   There is nothing to be gained by  a resort to harsh measures.    The government is morally bound to sell the property.  It will avoid a lot of strife by selling the  squatters' lots in the open market subject  toa fair upset price.   The circumstance  that cabinet ministers can  be pig-headed  is no excuse for their being so.  Jx the legislature last week, a telegram  was read as coming from II. E. Croasdaile,  on behalf of the Kootenay Mining Protective Association, stating that the association did not authorize the sending of any  telegrams against the insertion of the  alien clause in the mineral act. There  was no good reason why the Kootenay  Mining Protective Association should protest against the insertion of the alien  clause. The members of this association  are mine owners, rather than working  miners, and the alien clause represented  the churlish spirit of a disappointed workman, who for the reason that he was unable to get work in the United States,  wished to so amend the statutes that citi-  zens'of the United States could not work  in the mines of Kootenay. The clause  was so drawn that it did  not apply to  wealthy aliens.' Their right to hold and  work mines as a corporate body remained  the same. The object of the amendment  was to shut out the prospector and working miner, and in the prospector and  working miner it' is not to be supposed  that the Kootenay .Alining Protective Association takes any warm interest.  J. Fiuod IU'.me's resolution, that the  government acted without authority in  granting Jlein/.e 1200 inches of water from  Jieave'r creek, was defeated in the legisla-  lature on Wednesday last. The resolution was lost on a straight party vote,  but it afforded Mr. Hume and several opposition members a chance to show that  the government had displayed an indecent  haste in granting the water to Heinze. Jt  'was clearly shown that colonel Baker had  exceeded his authority in granting the  water right which captain Pit/.stubbshad  refused, aud it was directly charged that  the government, in bringing down the  correspondence bearing upon the case,  had withheld communications unfavorable to the minister of mines. The government's position did not admit of defence, and the ministers contented themselves with recording a vote of confidence  from their mechanical majority.  The result of the Chilliwack election on  Friday indicates that the Turner administration is losing ground on the main-  laud. The election was necessitated by  the death of Thomas E. Kitchen, who had  represented that district for several years.  In the last general election Kitchen had a  majority of but 22, but on Friday A. S.  Yedder, the opposition candidate, had a  majority of SI votes over T. C. Higginson,  government candidate. Kitchen was always considered the strongestgovernment  man in the district, and Vedder's success  in polling a heavier vote than Kitchen indicates a growth of opposition sentiment.  The provincial legislature was, prorogued on Saturday after sitting exactly  three months. "When the members were  .called to meet in February it was thought  by many that the government would go  to pieces on the British Pacific railway.  A compromise was reached, however, aud  the railway party continued the most  servile supporter of the government to  the end of the session.  Tun Rossland Miner has started the  story that Hon. 1). W. Higgins will refuse  to serve another term in the legislature as  speaker, and that he will go upon the  floor of the house and oppose the government of Premier Turner. Tlie reasons  assigned by the Miner for this probable  move'of the speaker's is that the government has put several slights upon him as  speaker during the present session and  altogether ignored him in the matter of  the Cassiar Central railway job. The  Tiuiujxe has no inside information upon  the subject, but it will venture the opinion  that if Hon. IX W. Higgins- gives up the  position of speaker it will not be for a.uy  of the reasons assigned. Speaker Higgins is a shrewd man, whose eye is ever ou  the main chance. He has been practically  at outs with the present administration  ever since it was formed, 'and has been  waiting to see how the cat would probably jump. If he quits the chair it will  be because he has made up his mind that  the Turner administration will not live  through another general election, and because he does not wish to go down in-the  ship. If D. W. Higgins rats the Turner  party it is not likely that he will go alone.  Tiieite is at present before the railway  committee of the house of commons a bill  to make all debts due for work done,  wages due, or material supplied in construction, a first lien on a railway: in  other words, that such debts shall have  first claim on Dominion subsidies. Those  who have had any acquaintance with  railway building in this province will  welcome the passage of such a bill. In  the past it has apparently been the pui.'-  posu ������!' ��� 'ii>- -iy contractors in Kootenay  to swinti.o every one they, could, and  against roads declared to be for the general good of Canada, the men so swindled  appear to have been unable to secure any  redress whatever. As there will be considerable railway building in Kootenay  this''summer, it is important that every  possible safeguard be thrown around  those supplying labor and materials for  the construction of such works. The experience West Kootenay has had with  irresponsible railway contractors should  make them unanimous in their efforts to  strengthen the hands of those who are  now,moving to make the Dominion subsidies firstly liable for wages and materials.  The Thibuxe hopes that the press of the  district will take this matter up.  Li eutexaxt-Govekxor Dew on by has  seen fit to withhold his assent from the  bill passed by the legislature this session  for the purpose of preventing the employment of Chinese by companies receiving  concessions from the crown. When public opinion i.s so strong upon a subject that  it forces legislation from a hostile government, such legislation may safely be taken  as in accordance with the wishes of the  people. The bill which lieutenant-governor Dewdney refused to assent to passed  the legislature on a division of 21 to S.    It  provided  that "in case of any, act here-  '��� after  passed,   giving, granting or con-  " firming to any person or body corporate,  " the right of erecting a bridge, making a  '���' railway,   turnpike   road,   telegraph   or  " telephone line, the construction or im-  " prbvement of" a harbor, canal, lock, dam,  " slide  or other  like work, the right of  " ferry,  the   right   of   carrying ou any  " trade,   business, occupation or calling,  "the  giving, granting or. confirming to  " such   person   or    body  corporate,  any  " property,   right   or  privileges whatso-  " ever, or for the amendment of a former  "act of a like  nature, which' has not al-  " ready   similar   provisions,  no   Chiuese  " shall be employed in connection with or  " in relation to any of the works, rights,  " trade, business, occupation or property  "' given,  granted,  confirmed,   authorized  "or affected by the act."   There can  be  no question but that the passing of this  act was in the interests of the province of  British  Columbia.    It clashed,  however,  with the interests of certain speculative  railway   promoters   who    have    become  large beneficiaries of the province.    Had  lieutenant-governor Dewdney assented to  this bill, in the natural order of things the  bill would have gone before the minister  of justice of the Dominion for approval,  and the governor-general could have disallowed it at any time within one year from  the date of its being given force of law.  Since lieutenant-governor Dewdney has  adopted the unusual course of refusing  his   assent   to   the  bill,  the question  of  motive for so doing is directly raised.    In  lieutenant-governor Dewdney the people  of British Columbia have a lieutenant-  governor who was not above becoming a  stockholder and director in a prospective  railway company which was a large beneficiary of the  province.   This being so,  the people may be pardoned for speculating  as   to   whether  lieutenant-governor  Dewdney, in defending his assent to this  bill,   was   doing   the   cabinet   that   opposed    it    a    service    or     whether   he  has   lately    become    interested' in   the  British Pacific Railway company.   This  railway company is very much interested  in  this anti-Chinese   act.    If the act is  knocked out the company will have the  right to retain its cash and land subsidies  and employ Chiuese as well.   This may be  a reflection upon Hon. Edgar Dewdney,  but his.conduct in leaving the  province  last summer to assist  Heinze in floating  his    railway    bonds   invites   just   such  reflections.   At a meeting of the city council Mon-  d iy evening a communication was read  from J. A. Mara, on behalf of theCousum-  ers'  Water Works company, offering  to  sell   to   the   corporation   the company's  plant   and   water    privileges   for   $5000.  This is about one-third of the  valuation  placed upon the plant, etc., of the company by the company's officers in  February, when the bill incorporating the city  was before the legislature.   This figure no  doubt more nearly approaches the value  of what the water company has to sell  the city and  upon  this  valuation negotiations  with  a  view  to   purchase   will  probably   be   opened.    It   is   in   the   interests of the city that this rival company  should  be got out of the way, and  the  only way is by purchase.    While it may  be said that the construction of a water  system  by  the  corporation  would  in   a  measure cripple  the  Consumers'  Waterworks company, it  must also be remembered that so long  as  this company remained in the business it would likewise  seriously impair the revenue derived by  the corporation from the civic system.    It  is not unreasonable to suppose that a very  large   percentage   of   the   consumers   of  water, having their present connections  with   the   Consumers'  company  system,  would  continue   to   receive   their  water  from that company in order to avoid the  charges  incidental  to  making  new connections.    When  the legislature refused  to   compel   the   corporation  to  pay  the  water company $i:J,"��(K) for its system it  was no doubt influenced by the assurances  of the friends of the city of Nelson that  the representatives of the citizens of Nelson could be depended upon to pay the  Consumers' Water Works company a fair  valuation  for  its   plant   and   privileges.  This is no doubt what the city council intends to do.   The city engineer has been  instructed to prepare a report upon the  condition of the company's plant, and the  city solicitor has been instructed to report upon the company's privileges under  its charter  of incorporation.    Upon the  nature of their reports will no doubt in a  great measure depend the valuation which  the city council will place upon the company's plant and charter.   There is every  reason to believe that if a dealis made  between the city of Nelson and the Consumers' Water Works company none but  business considerations will enter into it.  It is as much to the interest of the Consumers' Water Works company to sell as  it is to the interest of the corporation to  purchase, and for this reason there should  not be any difficulty as to terms.

The discussion over the construction of  the Crow's Nest railway will no doubt result in much good to the people of the  whole Dominion, as it lias resulted in  directing the attention of the federal  government to the necessity for regulating the rates of the great transportation  companies. Jn this connection the Toronto Globe says1:  It is now generally believed that minister Blair intends to establish as an integral part of the machinery of government a railway commission, with power  not only to regulate rates, but also to see  that companies properly expend the  moneys raised- for the construction of  railways aud exercise the powers conferred under their chtirters in such :i manner as to carry out their obligations to  the people. This means a tremendous  step in advance and one that will be very  acceptable to the commercial interests of  the country. The people have had their  burdens very greatly increased by paying  railway rates far beyond what the actual  cost of the railways demanded. If, in response to the minister of railways, parliament calls ii halt, stops kite-flying, gives  no more charters to be peddled about by  persons who, when they secure them,  have no intention of building the railways  for which they provide, and forces the  railways to give reasonable and equalized  freight rates all over the Dominion, it  will perform a service to the country of  the first magnitude.  This end cannot be reached, however,  without a struggle" with the great ..railway .interests, and it is manifestly impossible to take up the whole transportation system during wJiat remaius of the  present session. That the proposal to establish a raihyay commission will be the  chief government measure of the next  session seems entirely probable, judging  from Mr. Blair's.'remarks...' It will be  greatly to the advantage of the country  that the matter should be thoroughly  discussed, by those having a special knowledge of the subject, prior to next session  of the hou^e. The question of how best  to provide.: railway communication  through the Crow's Nest J'ass, while incident to this general, railway question,  will have to be settled during the present  session. Mr.-Blair, as haSoalready been,  stated in this column, says there is in  some minds doubt as to .whether the general power to build branch lines possessed  by the C. P. R. under its charter gives  the right to construct extensions from'  lines of which it is lessee or applies to the  proposed Crow's Nest exteusiou. Proposals to confer further powers upon railways to run through the pass are all to  be deferred till the government announces  its policy. The central point of that  policy is stated in the words of the minister of railways: "We want to assure  the people of this country that for the  future, for all time, they are going to  have unrestricted railway connection  through that pass."  Rearrangement of the Canadian Pacific.  The rearrangement of the C. P. R. system has just been completed. Formerly  there were five divisions of the road, viz:  The Atlantic, Ontario ��fc Quebec, .Eastern,  Western and Pacific, but henceforth there  will be only two. the Eastern, extending  from the Atlantic to Fort William, and  the Western, comprising that part of the  line thence to the Pacific. Thomas Tait,  'formerly assistant general manager of tlie  road, becomes manager of the eastern  division and William Wythe, formerly  superintendent of the original western  section, manager of the extended western  division. The district superintendents  will not be interfered with, and Mr. R.  Mar pole will be superintendent of the old  Pacific section with headquarters at  Vancouver.     -      Three Still Alive.  Three of the queen's twelve bridesmaids  are still alive. One is lord Rosebery's  mother, and another, the elder of the  dowager-duchesses of Bedford, is a sister  of lord Sackville, of unlamented memory.  These were at firstsupposed to betheoniy  survivors, but a third is discovered in the  person of lady Jane Bouvine, who at that  time was the most beautiful of the lot,  and, as thedaughter of theearl of Radnor,  was a notable figure in society. But she  married a commoner in 1817, and has been  living in cheerful obscurity ever since.  Full Text of- the Bill which   the  Government  Put Through the Legislature.  The act recently passed by the legislature for the removal--of squatters, from  crown lands  will  be interesting  though  hardly ' pleasant    reading   to   the   residents   of   Nelson,   for    whose   removal  the act was introduced.    The  mere passing of the act does not necessarily imply  that the government will attempt harsh'  measures  with the  squatters,   but  until  the difficulty  is adjusted   the squatters  will no doubt be on the anxious seat. The  following is the text of the bill:  When   any   person   is   wrongfully   or  without lawful authority in possession of  any public land and refuses to vacate or  abandon the same, the chief commissioner  of lands and works, orany officer or agent  of the  department of lands and  works  authorized by the chief commissioner for  that purpose, may, upon affidavit of the  facts, apply to the county judge of the  county, or any stipendiary magistrate, of  the district, in which the land lies, i'or a  summons directed to such person calling  upon him forthwith to vacate or abandon  possession of the said land, or within ten  days   after service of said   summons  to  show cause why an order for his removal  should not be made, aud if upon return of  the summons it shall appear that he has  not vacated or abandoned possession, or  he shall not show good cause to the contrary, the judge or. stipendiary magistrate  shall make an order for the summary removal of such person from such land, and  such order shall be executed by the sheriff  or any bailiff, or constable, or other person to whom it shall be delivered.  It shall be sufficient service of the summons if a copy thereof be left with any  grown .up person found on the land and  another copy be put up in some conspicuous place thereon, and where no grown  up person is found on the land, if a 'copy  be put up iu eacJi of two such conspicuous  places.  Tlie officer to whom any warrant is addressed under the provisions of this act  shall forthwith remove the person named  therein from crown lands, and in the execution of the warrant shall have all the  powers, rights, immunities and privileges  enjoyed by a sheriff or constable or other  peace officer in the execution of his duty.  Any person remaining upon crown lands  after having been ordered  to  leave  the  same, or returning  thereto after having  left in obedience'to a summons, or after  having  been removed under warrant as  aforesaid, shall, upon summary conviction  thereof   before   a   stipendiary   or  police  magistrate, or  before any two or  more  justices of the peace, be liable to a fine of  not less than twenty dollars or more than  one hundred dollars and costs, and  in default of payment of such  line and costs,  to imprisonment for a term.not exceeding  three calendar months, but in case such  . person so convicted shall pay such fine and  costs and continue in  possession of such  crown lands, or shall return thereto after  having served any term of imprisonment  imposed in default of payment thereof, he  shall upon summary conviction thereof as  aforesaid be liable to a further fine of not  less than twenty dollars.or more than one  hundred dollars and costs, and in default  of payment of such further flue and costs,  to imprisonment for a term not exceeding  six calendar months, aud 'he-shall be similar! y dealt with so long as lie shall continue in possession after payment of any  fine as aforesaid.  Auy person resisting, obstructing or interfering with an officer executing a warrant or serving a summons issued under  this act shall be liable to the .same, penalties as a person resisting, interfering or  obstructing a sheriff or constable'or other  peace officer in the execution of his duty.  The officer executing a warrant "or serving a summons issued under this act may  take "with him all necessary assistance,  and shall have the right to demand such  assistance in the same-manner as a constable or other peace officer in the execution of his duty may lawfully do.  J3y this ruling any person who lias ,beeu  married in this country and then goes to  the United States for the purpose of being  divorced, returnin'g to Canada and marrying, is guilty of a bigamous act and.is liable to the penalty inflicted for the same.  Anglican Church Repudiates Prohibition.  The Anglican synod in session at, Winnipeg on Saturday created somewhat of a  sensation by refusing(1to urge all church  members to support the temperance plebiscite to be taken by the dominion government.     A   motion    that    the    synod  should take such action was moved by W.  H. Mulock, but an amendment was moved  by Dean O^AIeara, seconded by Rev. C. R.  Littler, t.h//t, while the synod'considers it  advisabfe^'that   the opinion   of   the   dominion  electors  should  be nought by a  plebiscite as to the advisability of prohibition: aud while further, if as a result of  the     plebiscite,    prohibition' legislation  should   be    enacted,   the   synod    would  urge   all   churchmen    to   a   cordial  and  loyal support of tha law, yet the synod  did not consider it advisable to pronounce  in advance any opinion on a subject to be  submitted to the judgment of the electorate.  A debate followed, which was closed-  by the archbishop, who stated distinctly  that he would vote against prohibition in  the plebiscite.  . He had come to the conclusion that, while the scripture condemns  drunkenness in-most certain  tones and  makes'it a sjjecial sin, yet it regards wine  as<a"'good gift of God, and the very emblem of joy.    He held that the scripture  allows that  which is a great enjoyment  to many, and he believed, very liealthful  when properly used.   He believed that in  practice  prohibition would  be a failure,  and that in enacting it the country would  be interfering with the free rights of the  people, and doing a grevious wrong to a  large section of thecomniunity. He would  be quite   prepared   to   see   drunkenness  made   a   criminal   offense,  the   same   as  theft,  and  punished  in   the usual   way.  The amendment was carried by 37 to 10.

A. E. Hodgius, city engineer, is making  , an examination of the mains of the Consumers' AVater Works'company, i'or the  purpose of reporting upon the condition  of the same to the council, lie has also  instructed Messrs. Spencer anci Hipperson  to make an independent report upon the  condition of the company's pipes.  The bank of British North America has  opened a branch in Slocan City. ��� This is  the fifth branch that the bank of B. N. A  has opened iu West Kootenay within the  past year.  John A. Turner will discharge tlie duties  of treasurer of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society during the absence  from the city of A. if. Clements.  Robt.r McKay, a miner, was instantly  killed by a falling tree on Monday. In  company with John McKae, McKay was  engaged,in clearing'out tlie old government trail between Eagle and 1!) creeks,  and was caught by a falling tree. McKay  came to this district from Nanaimo about  ' a year ago. A brother. working at the  Ainsworth concentrator was notified of  the fatality.  Mrs. E. 0. Arthur, of this, city, has  passed her examination before the British Columbia Medical council at Victoria,  and is therefore qualified to practice medicine in this province.  Arrangements have been perfected between Hector McRae and the owners of  the Poorman group for the floating of the  mines into a stock company. The mines  will probably be stocked for $250,000, of  ���which $50,000 will be reserved for development work. The new company will  shortly issue a prospectus.  Otto Duevel secretary of the German  Mining & Milling company, and Otto  Jahn, a trustee of the same company, were  in Nelson this week on their way to the  company's properties on Goat creek. The  company has seven claims along Goat  creek, including the Mountain Belle group  of four claims. For two years the com-  ��� pany has been quietly working its property,'the principal work being a 800-foot  tunnel on the Mountain Belle group, but  no attempt has been made to ship ore.  A mining expert accompanied Duevel aud  Jahn to the property this week.  The directors of the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital acknowledge with  thanks'the following contributions: G. 0.  Buchanan, 3 pounds tea; Charles'Lohmer,  checker board; J. A. Ryan, $-1; the collection boxes, $8.00; Mrs. Hodson, marina-'  lade; and the ladies' aid, IS nightshirts.  Messrs. Dobney and Parker of Rossland,  have secured a bond on the mineral claim  Kootenay Lake, situated on the east side  side of Kootenay Lake, about li miles below Pilot Bay. The claim was formerly  held by the oflicers and crew of the  steamer Kokanee, known as the steamboat gang.  ��� An attempt is being made to organize a  local lodge of the Knights of Pythias in  this city.  Messrs. McVicar and Dawes have eight  men washing on their hydraulic property  on -ID creek, and everything looks favorable to a successful season's work. As the  indications are that there will be less  water this year than formerly, it is the  intention of the management to make but  one clean-up. The water will probably  last till the first week iu July. Having  secured a five years'lease of the ground  Messrs. McVicar and Dawes have undertaken some rather expensive w/jrk for the  purpose of facilitating the working of the  ground.  Seneca G. Ketchum has been appointed  city . policeman. If there is anything in  a name he should make a good officer.  Thursday morning John Miles was sentenced to three months imprisonment by  Judge Forin for assaulting Mrs. McDonald of the Stanley house. The complaint  in the case was laid by police officer Seneca G. Ketch um, but Airs, McDonald did  not press for a convictiou. Had Mrs. McDonald entered the complaint Judge Forin  said he would have given Miles the full  penalty of two years for his offense.  Miles will go to Kamloops, as his sentence  calls for hard labor.  To the wife of Edmund Hinkliug, of this  city, there was born a daughter Thursday  morning.  The steamer Kokanee will hereafter  make a Monday trip to the townsites of  Lardo and Argenta at the head of Kootenay lake. The Lardo-Duucan country  will be extensively prospected this summer and the freight and passenger business offering is not to be sneezed at.  The steamer Ainsworth will make regular trips between Kaslo aud Bonner's  Ferry. There is a great deal of business  offering on this route and the owners of  the Ainesworth consider that there is  more money in it for them than in competing with theC. P. ii. and International  companies for the business between Nelson and Kaslo. The Ainsworth will leave  Kaslo every Monday and Thursday.  A. H. Clements, city treasurer, left this  week on a trip to his former home in  Treemore, Ontario. Mr. Clements was at  one time a member of the Treemore municipal council.  Thoburn Allau, formerly secretary of  the C. 6c R. Steam Navigation company,  is on his way to Ottawa on a holiday trip.  When he returns to the province Mr. Allan  will take up his residence in Victoria,  having secured a secretaryship with the  Lillooet, Fraser River 6c Cariboo Gold  Fields company.  During, the first 12 days of the present  month there was exported from the Slocan via Revelstoke l;"3iJ tons of ore, valued  at $10,187, Of this the Idaho contributed  :15 tons, valued at $0,551; tlie Slocan Star  00 tons, valued at $1,002, and the Enter-  pise, on  Ten-mile creek,   10   tons valued  at $-1,002. It will be seen from the above  figures that the product of these properties lumped together; average more than  $100 per ton.  ' Robert Ince was appointed temporary  policeman this week by mayor Houston.  The city council has entered upon the  work of collecting traders' licenses from  all those who have not paid the same to  the provincial government for the first  half of the present year.  J. A. Gilker lias.put a plate glass front  in his Baker street store, and has built an '  addition i'or the better handling of the  business of the postoflice. When the new  drawers arrive Nelson will have the neatest postoflice in Kootenay.  John R. Campbell, who has been in the  employ of W. F. Teet/.el & Co. i'or the  past year, will commence business on his  own account next week at Quart/. Creek.  He will be the first druggist in Quart/.  Creek and will no doubt mtike the.business go.  AV. G. McMynn, the Grand Forks constable who shot a prospector named R. J.  Hood in front of the record office, has  been committed to stand his trial on a  charge of shooting  with  intent to kill.
