Mineral   Output    of  Upwards   ot   Gr _  Million    Dollars    Every    IVlonfH'  In   The   Year  SIXTH   YEAR.-NO.  .-;���;  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER 2��, 185)8.  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR.  RECIPROCITY   STRIKES   A   SNAG.  The United States Smelters  Will Oppose  the  Free Entry of Smelter Products.  rt'is now conceded that considerable  opposition will probably be encountered  from the United States smelting interests  in determining tho proposed reciprocity  arrangement between the United States  and the Dominion of Canada, with respect  to mineral products. The smelting interests, being more consolidated and better  organized, bid lair to exert more influence  rhan the American mine owners, and as  the interests of the mine owners and  ' smelters clash to a certain extent, it may  be presumed that if any interests are  sacrificed it will be those of the mine  owners'and not of the smelters. So far  as the feeling can be gauged at present  the smelter interest is,not opposed to the  free entry of British Columbia ores into  the United States, since it increases their  purchasing market, but it is .said to be  bitterly opposed to any tariff changes  which propose that the smelter product  of Canadian lead or nickel shall enter the  United States upon the same terms.  It will be reasonably clear to most people that any such measure of reciprocity,  which meets with the fa\'or of the United  States smelting interests, must be disadvantageous to the smelting industry of  Kootenay. Unfortunately, the smelting  industry of Kootenay is yet in its infancy, and several of the public men of  the dominion lniA'e gone so far as to say  that no such industry exists, ancP that  Canadian interests would not suffer if  every pound of Canadian lead Avore  smelted in the United States.  There is one interest, however, Avhich  will probably be exerted to prevent the  fastening upcu,Kootenay of any such jug-  handled-system of reciprocity as appears  open to it, and that is the Canadian Paci-  lic Railway interest. To a certain extent  the interests of the railway company are  wrapped up in the development of this  section of tlie province. It is to the railway company's interest that so far as  possible the ores of the district shad be  smelted in the district. The operation of  smelters in Kootenay Avouid create a con-  siderable traffic for the railway company  which aviII bo wholly lost if the ores of  Kootenay are treated in the United  States. In such an event the operations of the railway company would be  restricted to competing for a portion  off the business of carrying ore from the  mines of Kootenay to smelting points in  the United States.  h< view oi'the importance of the mining industry it is strange that the leaders  of the 'Liberal party have not sought  some means of encouraging the treatment  of Canadian ores in Canada, instead of  betraying so much haste in their  attempt to surrender the infant smelting  industry to the powerful competition of  the United States smelter trust. During  the year ending June last Canada sent to  the United States \$13,S3S,S33 worth of  mining products out of a total $H-,_63,2y_  exported., Last year this export from  the mine was greater iu value than the  exports from the farm, the fishery and  the factory combined by -'nearly three  million dollars. During the year 1S9S-9, if  the Yukon gold output is included, Canada's exports of the mine to the United  States will be at least twenty-hVe million  dollars, or considerably more than half of  the total export of. all Canadian products  to that country Of the duty-free mining  products sent to the United States in the  year ending June last: Gold quartz, etc.,  value, $3,T)6(),G24; silver ore and concentrates, $3,519,030 ; nickel matte, $970,;">81;"  copper, $831,736; copper pyrites, $221,504;  asbestos, $354,734. Total, $9,404,225. The  principal items of export on Avliich  duty was charged were : Bituminous coal,  value, $2,870,821; lead in ore, $1,000,278:  mica, $08,379; stone. $59,400: gypsum,  $193,515.   Total, $4,198,399.  The Marion a Shipper.  Upon the Marion, adjoiuing the California, on Silver mountain, near New '.Denver, there are eight men working, under  the foremauship of J. Marino. The tAVO  veins uncovered two months ago are now  being worked. The A'eins are not  more than 70 feet apart and have clean  ore on the surface. On No. 1 a tunnel is  now in 40 feet, with 14 inches of clean ore  and carbonates in the breast. From this  drift about 10 tons'of shipping ore, running about 100 oz. in silver and 45 per  cent, lead has been taken out. On the  No. 2 lead a.crosscut is being run to tap  the ore chute, but slow progress is being  made, as the country rock is as hard as  flint. Commodious quarters for the men,  with ore houses and blacksmith shop,  have been erected this fall, and the property will be extensively developed this  winter.    A shipment will be made as soon  as.possible. .   The St. Eugene Tramway  The preliminary survey for the St.  Eugene tramway from the mine, near  Moyie City, to the concentrator site is being made. Thomas T. MeVittie and- T.  11. Taylor, of Fort Steele, are doing the  Avork. The 100-ton ore bin at the mine is  finished, and the building of a 200-ton bin  at the concentrator site will be started  Avithin a. week .or ten days. Between 2000  and 3000 tons of ore wiij be slppped from  t he mine this winter.  in  ,.. Hos.-Jand. The Turner .stock passes  into the hand* of the corporation to the  extent of 205,000 shares. The price will  be $7.25 per share, or $1,180,250 in money,  and the vendors of the stock will be  allowed the clean-up at the smelter,  which, it is variously estimated, will net  from $150,000 to $200,000. 1t is considered  safe to say that the price all told will be  $S net tri the members of the minority  faction.   SLOGAN   MINING   NOTES.  The B. A. O. Secures Control at Last.  After almost a  year of dickering  the  British America Corporation on  Monday  night closed the deal by Avhich it will become absolute master of the Le   Itoi mine  During tiie past week A.l. Behne and  A.   Murphy   have  been  camping  in  the  snow up on Silver mountain, engaged in  tracing the lead from the Marion on to  the Convention, in which A. F. Fauquier  is also interested. They were eminently  successful and opened up the vein ior a  distance of 100 feet, showing clean-ore  from two to ten indies in places. In fact,  they claim to have one of the best exhibits uoav on the hill.,  J. Provost will develop the Lome group  on the Nelson slope this Avinter. Two  tunnels are in on the vein 75 and 49 feet  respectively, and the showing is good.  Work on the Palmito, adjoining the  Queen Bess, and owned in London, Out.,  is steadily advancing. Two hundred feet  more iu the No. 3 will tap the ore chute.  The long  raise   between.- Nos.  2 and 3  tunnels in  the  Vancouver is completed.  Ore is being broken down in large quantities, and it maintains its high values.  ��� A carload of ore will be shipped from  the Black Grouse as soon as it can be  taken out. A recent assay shows 140  ounces of silver. This is one of the properties owned by Major Furlong on the  north fork of Carpenter.  Acetylene Gas Machine Explodes,  liossland Record: Tuesday morning  about 9 o'clock an accident occurred at  the Miners' Union hall on west Columbia  avenue, by which two men almost lost  their lives. P. J. Hennesy and Charles  Jacobs were repairing an acetylene gas  machine that had got out of order, when,  by some unaccountable means, there was  a terrible explosion, which throw both  men to the floor, stunning them into an  unconscious state, and . completely demolished everything in the vicinity. Upon  investigation it Avas found that Hennesy  came off the more fortunate of the two.  having been burned somewhat on the  face, neck and hands, and the attending  physicians do not expect any serious result-, although iiis wounds a:-_ most pain  fid. Jacobs fared much Avorse. having  some very severe burns on the face and  neck.  ���  Bought the Whole Townsite.  This week one of the largest deals ever  consummated in southern British Columbia was closed. By the terms of the purchase the original townsite of the cit5^ of  Grand-Forks,.the.north addition containing some 200 acres, and the Ruckles addition, to the east of the original townsite,  containing 00 acres, and 132 acres of unplatted land lying to the south of the  town, but inside the city limits, owned by  John A. Mauley, becomes the property of  an eastern syndicate. The syndicate is  represented by Richard Armstrong, president of the Grand Forks board of trade,  and J. B. McArthur. Q. C, president of  the board of trade of Rossland. The purchase price of the above properties aggregated $94,000, and was a strictly cash deal.  Did Smith Libel Race.?  Fber Clark Smith, the publisher of the  'Rossland Evening Record, was arrested  ou Wednesday on a charge of criminal  libel. The complaining -witness was  Charles Ernest Race, the editor of the  Miner. The Avarraiit was issued by police  magistrate Jordan. The alleged libel consists in the publication in the Record of  various articles reflecting on the character  of Mr. ��� Race. There are nine counts in  the information. Mr. Smith appeared  yesterday morning before magistrate  Jordan, and asked for a continuance until  Wednesday next. lie asked for bail iu  the sum of $350, but the magistrate placed  the bonds at $4,000. Mr. Smith assumed  $2,000 of the amount, while Hector McPherson and John A. Smith want as sureties in the sum of $1,000 each.  Railway Rumor from Yrnir.  A newspaper correspondent at Y"mir  has turned in the subject matter  of an interview which he had with a  Canadian Pacific Itaihvay engineer named  Burns, in which the engineer stated that  he Avouid recommend to the company the  reaching of Nelson from Kttskonook via  Yrnir instead of along the shore of Kootenay lake. Engineer Burns is credited  with saying that the connection via Yrnir  would be much cheaper than the construction of a road along the lake shore.  Change in the Fidelity.  F. L. Byron has disposed of his entire  interests in the Fidelity group to.F.J.  Finnucane. The latter, Avith Scott McDonald of the Payne mine, uoav hold the  property and they in future will work it.  The consideration of the sale was fully up  to   that   ol'   the   lloltz   and    Williamson  interest.    Ruth Paying $5,000 PeFjVIonth.  The secretary of the Ruth mines reports  that during the mouth of October there  were shipped from the. Ruth 239 (oris of  ore, on which the net profit to the company Avas $5,000.  THE   FIRST . THANKSGIVING   DA"_".  With the Puritans it   Commenced   as   a  Fa��i  and Ended as a Feast.  Thursday was Thanksgiving day and a  holiday throughout Canada. It may be  interesting to observe that unless the  French had a Thanksgiving in-Canada  previous to 1030 the old Puritan Englishmen who left their homes about that  time, for the neAv world, Avere the first  to celebrate in   this fashion,  When, in the year of grace 1030, sturdy  governor John Winchrop and the Puritan  colonists of Massachusetts proclaimed and  duly observed a "public thanksgiving,"  they probably had little id_a of the importance Avhich that festival was destined  to obtain in the history of America.  The first Thanksgiving differed very  materially from its successors, in that it  was proclaimed as a fast and not as a  feast. Supplies had run short, the ships  expected from England were delayed,  and extinction threatened the " Governor  and Company of Massachusetts Bay in  New England." Winthrop and his council decided' to hold a day of prayer and  abstinence, "so that ye Lorde be propitiated aud looke upon His servants with favor, in that they have humbled' themselves before Him." Accordingly, a crier  was sent about the primitive settlement  of Charlestowu, and the colonists were  each and till invited to take part in the  fast. Their sacrifice met with speedy re-  Avard.  Scarcely had the noon hour of the  allotted day arrived when the long-hoped  for ship made its welcome appearance in  Massachusetts Bay, the cargo was landed  and the fast was succeeded by a banquet  of a sort which must have seemed sumptuous indeed to the exiles so recently  plunged in hunger and hardship. On the  threshold of dreaded Avinter Winthrop  and his followers found what had been a  prospect of fear and peril changed into  one of happiness and hope. Such was  America's first Thanksgiving, as celebrated 200 years ago. Thereafter each  succeeding November was mtirked in the  annals of the colony by a similar festival  of gratitude.  BOUNDARY   IN   A   FIGHTING   MOOD.  CITY   COUNCIL   MEETING.  At Monday afternoon's session, of the  city council an invitation , av;is read from  F. W. Peters, district freight agent of the  C. P. H., inviting the mayor and members  of the council to take a trip through the  East Kootenay district upon the formal  opening of lhe Crow's; Nest Puss railway.  The invitation v. a-: accepted with tlu-idc-.  and the city clerk was instructed to for-  Avard to Mr. Peters the names of all the  members avIio will be able to accept the  same.  A letter from John Lapointe, offering  to move earth on Josephine street near  the Canadian Pacific railway for 31 cents  per yard was referred to the public Avorks  committee.  The application of W. H. Rail for appointment as caretaker of the city cemetery Avas filed.  G. C.--Hodge requested the council to  prohibit the pasting of bills or placards  upon telephone poles. The council,  amended its former resolution to meet  the request.   .,  On motion of alderman Teet/.el, seconded  by aldermau Hillyer, it Avas resolved,  that Avhereas the Iocation_ at Nelson of  refining works Avouid be of -material advantage to the city, and of. great benefit  to the mining and smelting industries of  the country tributary to Nelson, that the  city open negotiations with capitalists  Avil'liug to establish such works.  Mayor Houston was authorized'to have  railings placed on ail inclined sidewalks  uoav Avithotit railings.  A resolution was passed.prohibiting the  coasting by children and others- tin the  sidewalks in the city, and the mayor Avas  authorized to select throe streets, on the  roadAvays of which the coasting shall be  alloAved.  The question as to the construction of a  sewer on Carbonate street was referred  to the mayor, to "report to the next meeting of the council.  What the School TrusteoH Iioquire  At a meeting of the school trustees last  eA'ening the question of government  appropriations for the ensuing year Avas  considered, and as a result the secretary  Avas requested to write to the educational  department and request that $(},()()<) be  placed on the estimates for the completion of the present school building; that  an increase be made iti tlie sal-tries ofa'l  the teachers on the staff; that prnvi-inn  for four additional Lenchei-.-; lie ?>����������''<��� : and  that a permanent janitor ho employed.  The trustees approved of, the action of  principal Snarly iu whipping the buy  William Gates, antl also of- the action of  engaging counsel to deft.'ml the principal  on'the charge laid before, the magistrate.  The board will make an effort to stamp  out truancy by having the teachers report  till such cases, which will he brought  before the magistrate.  To Help the Grit Candidate.  J. T. Garrow, Q. G, late member of t he  legislature, anil the present l.iheial candidate for West Huron, "lias been appointed a member of the Ontario cabinet  without portfolio. Mr. Garrow has been  member for West Huron several year-,'  but Avas elected in .March, by the easting  vote of the returning officer only, and on  the question of the, disputed ballot coming up he resigned the seat to have a new  election.  The People Want Revenge on the C. P. R. for  Its Road Ag-ent Policy.  Grand Forks Miner: The revival of the  board of trade is a move in the right direction. This organization did some good  Avork on behalf of the Kettle Biver Valley railway charter last winter, and as  that same fight will come before the approaching session of the Dominion parliament at Ottawa, there will be plenty of  work i'or this organization to do in the  same line' the coming winter. In this  struggle last year the only object the  people of the Boundary country had in  making a fight to secure the Corbin  charter Avas to secure the construction of  a railway through the district at once.  Thev had no grievances Avhatever against  tho'C. P. R. What they Avanted was-  transportation facilities and they Avanted  them quick, and if they had had any assurance that the C. P. R, Avouid have commenced the construction of a road through  the district this season there would have  been practically no fight made in favor of  the Corbin charter.  This season the situation is entirely different. The people of the Boundary  country have a grievance, and if we are  not badly mistaken will rise up enmasse  aud send a protest to Ottawa against the  highway robbery practiced by the C. P.  R. from one end of tho district to tlie  other.  Not being satisfied Avith receiving one  of the largest land grants ever known in  the history of the province, and a cash  bonus of S-i-.OOO a mile, they sent representatives through the district, who visited  every town betAveen Robson and Midwajr,  and the OAvners and promoters of _ tlie  various towns wore called upon aud given  to understand that unless they would  turn over a large portion of their holdings  to the C. P. R. company that'the name of  their towns would not be found on the  maps of the company, and they would tlo  ail in their power "to kill their toAvn.  While these threats in almost every instance proved successful, theC.-P. R. did  not make many friends for itself among  the people of the district, aud those who  were held up and robbed by this heartless corporation in a manner that Avouid  make a, highwayman ashamed of himself  will not be slow in getting back at that  company. Just at present the representatives of the C. P. It. here may feel jubilant over the success of the little confidence game they have played iu this section, but when the time comes for the  fight in the dominion house over the  Ta-rpvth-rT of a c,!i-,!,'t3i' !'> thr* I-."' c!_ !���'��� v.*!'  Valley railway, they will roali/.e that  they could have much better confined  their operations in this district to running a railway in the interests of the public. Instead of using it as a lever to " hog '"  all the townsites iu the district.  MINING   NEWS.  C..11. Evans, president of the Leviathan  Gold Mining.tt MillingGompauy, Limited,  ��� requests'Tirio Tiuijl'XE to publish the following: "Good progress is now being  made with de%relopment work-:oil. the 11  claims constituting the Leviathan Gold  Mining & Milling Company, Limited,  opposite Kaslo. This proposition promises to be a Arery valuable 'property, the  iron capping (in places 50 feet Avide) which  can be traced for over three miles, all  Avithin the company's property, is in the  light of experience at Rossland and Republic, a sufficiently good indication -that-  pay ore can be easily reached. Economical working is assured from the fact that  the property is only three miles from,  Kootenay lake by easily constructed  wagon road. An inquiry for a block of a  million shares for London, England, has  been received and indications point to  considerable interest iu the company being manifested, owing largely to its exceptional acreage in addition to general  possibilities'."  Want Running Powers Over the C. N. R.  it is now reported that the delay in the  matter of the construction of the Nelson  & Bedlington railway is due to the desire  ot the promoters to be allowed running  rights over tlie Crow's Nest railway for a  portion of the route, or at any rate to be  allowed to lay their track in the Crow's  Nest'Pass right-of-way. This would mean  that the new line Avouid not only avoid  an expensive piece of construction, but  also that all the tracklaying it Avouid  have to do this side of the boundary  would be from the boundary to the eighth'  siding, a distance of about thirteen miles,  and from Kuskonook Siding'to Kusko-  nook. a- di.-'..-inee of eight miles. If this is  true there will tie an early opportunity  offered to Clifford Sifton to give effect to  conditions which the federal government  imposed upon the Canadian Pacific Jta.il-  .Avay Company in stipulating that . any  ol her railway company may secure running powers over the Crow's Xest Pass  railway.  Tho Atlln Lake Gold Finds.  W. J. .McKay, who was for a time connected with TilM Thiiuwk. and spent the  .summer  on   the Timlin   trail,   brings   the  news of the discoveries  midway  between  Teslio and Atiiu lake-;. Tlie new field in  iirifi-h Columbia has quite eclipsed the  ivloiulyke in the. attention of everyone  from 'ileiiura loTeslin lake, ho says, and  one am! till wil! find tl.eir way to Atiin in  the spii::g. afh-r wintering where I hey  now are. Some few of the pioneers, who  struck' nero.-s from a point 30 miles down  lake Te-lin. arc  reported   lo  have  struck  rich pay dirt about half way across to  Atlin City, and will remain aud develop  these properties. Others Avill push on to  their original objective point���Atlin being  the common' cry. There were KS in Mr.  McKay's party, who came down the  Stickine in an open row boat, Avith the  ice grinding and pounding all around  their craft.    LIBRARY ASSOCIATION TO  INCORPORATE.  And All Who Subscribe $10 Per Annum Will  Have a Voice in its Management.  At Friday afternoon's meeting of those  interested iu the establishment of a public library it was decided to-incorporate a  society to be known as the Nelson Public  Library Association, ami, i'or the purpose  of organizing, another meeting will be  held on Tuesday evening iu the board of  trade rooms at S o'clock.  The report of the cam'assing committee  was presented, showing that $000 had  been received from subscriptions. The  ladies who have the canvassing in hand  expect to increase the amount of subscriptions to at least Spl,000, which, Avith the  grant from the city council and the proceeds from the Thanksgiviug concert will  put the library on a good financial basis.  The committee appointed to report  upon suitable rooms for the library recommended three rooms in the Broken Hill  block, at the corner of Ward and Baker  streets, and the same were secured.  At the meeting to be held on Tuesday  evening, all avIio have subscribed $10 or  over to the library fund tire requested to  attend, as upon them devolves the management of the library. At this meeting  the Women's Councirwill be represented  bv five ladies.  OLD   CRY   AGAINST   ALIENS.  Severe Whipping at the Public School.  J. H. Soady, who holds the position of  principal at the Nelson public school, was'  before police magistrate Grease on Friday  upon the charge of having been unduly  severe in his punishment of a small boy  named William Gates, who was an offender against school discipline through  playing truant. The boy Oates is a  chubby little chap, who prefers to play  truant rather than attend school, and  has in a measure got beyond his mother's  control. She therefore requested the  principal of school to punish him. but she  considered that the punishment administered Avas too severe. The evidence avcui  to shoAv that the boy Oates deserved a  whipping, but it was equally clear that  principal Soady had been too severe with  him. Maj/'st i"j f-i! Cr^'-iLe ton'-, j-.hi*', v:����-  of the case, and intimated that if it were  a matter merely between the boy Oate.-  and the principal that a fine would be imposed, but as the matter went straight to  the root of school discipline, he would be  obliged to deal Avith the case in its wider  scope, and the interests of school discipline required that he should dismiss the  case. This lie did, but in doing so he  censured the teacher for the severity with  which he had punished the boy.- At the  trial principal Soady was supported, by  all the school trustees, who provided him  with counsel in the person of \V. A.  Macdonaltl, Q...O.  Tho Cassiat- Railway Project.  F. S. Lack, who has been in Cassiar all  summer on behalf of the African J3ritish  Columbia 'Corporation,' has returned.  Herschel Cohen, who purchased the Cassiar raihvay charter from VVarburton  Pike, the concessionaire, and transferred  it to this company, has 'postponed railway  construction until satisfactory assurances  are received of the existence of payable  mineral. This Mr. Lack seems unable to  confirm at present, although, like all  other parts of British Columbia, he found  traces of minerals everywhere. It is probable that, without more .definite assurances as to the advantages to be derived  from a railway, the corporation will hesitate before entering upon so expensive an  undertaking, and apparently their engineer is of opinion that Avithout such transportation facilities the country cannot  'properly be'examined.  The Member for Albernl Disqualified.  A. M.. Neill, the member elect for AI-  berni, has resigned, having been disqualified by performing work under contract  with the government. This was road  work upon which he was engaged about  the time of his election. The proclamation I'or a new election has been issued.  Neill was a supporter of the Semi in administration, having defeated Huff, who  in the last house .supported the Turner  administration. -It will bo interesting to  watch -what efforts will be made in Al-  berni to regain IfuiT's -;eat. The arrangements made in Alberni will shew how  much fight there is in the old parly.  Colonist Men Summoned for Contempt.  \V. II. KUis. manager of lhe Colonist,  and Charles Lugrin, editor, have' been  summoned for contempt of court at the  instance ot counsel for Prentice in the  Jadooet election case. Tin; alleged contempt is said to be contained in some  notes which appeared in the Colonist to  the effect that 1 he case was to be tried before justice Martin, a\ ho was an active  partisan in the election campaign which  took place before his elevation to lhe  bench.  Tnoy Admire Each Other.  Toionto   World:   The  (dobo  say--   Mr.  Sifton   is  as  straight  as he  is able.    Mr.  Sifton replies that tho (dnbe is an   organ  of  Avhich   lhe   party  ought   to be pmud.  Affitation Being- Made to Shut Them Out from  Placer Mining- Privileg-es.  The provincial legislature will be in  session within a few, weeks, aud once  again a feeling is being worked up with a  view to having aliens excluded fiom  prospecting i'or and locating mineral  ground anywhere in the province.  This year the Colonist; of Victoria, appears to be taking the lead in ,the movement, but the Colonist would restrict the  operation of the alien clause, to the location of placer ground, allowing aliens the  exercise of the rights Avhich they at present enjoy with respect to the locating of  lode claims. Tt is just probable that the  exception made Avith respect to lode locations is made this year in view of the  fact that the shutting out of aliens would  raise an emphatic protest from the people  of Kootenay. There is, however, no  reason why aliens should be permitted to  locate lode properties which does not ap-'  ply to placer ground.  It will scarcely be denied that it is ro  interests of the province to have prospectors search for such precious metals as  its hills or creek beds contain. If it J.s xo  the interests of the province that its-mineral Avealth should be disco\Tered, the  more men there are engaged in the search  the sooner the desired discoveries will bo  made. Once the principle is admitted of  the wisdom of barring aliens from participating in the placer mining of the country, it wilhbean easy step to debar them  from locating lode claims.  The difference between the people mt  the coast and the people of Kootenay is  that the people of Kootenay are in touch  with the requirements of a mining sect ion  and the people of the coast are not. The  chief interest of the people of Kootenay  is to see the mineral resources of t Im  country developed, and they recogui/.-s  that tliis end Avill be more speedily attained without any restrictions upon  prospectors than with them. The  chief interest of the merchants of the  coast cities in mining matters is to sell  outfits to intending prospectors, and  they doubtless imagine that if Americans  are barred from prospecting in Canada  those who do prospect will be drawn  from a class who will buy their good-, at  Vancouver or Victoria rather than in  Seattle or some other American point.  Their contention that Americans or aliens  should not be allowed to prospect for gold  is advanced from a shop keeper's point, of  vicAV rather than from any consideration  of the effect which such a. move would  h.-v:-up-Hi ''io dci :!tij<i!V nt oi'/^he mi/:.-; a!  resources of the province and of tlie dominion.  What other nation- do should notaffcet  the policy of the people of Camilla or of  British Columbia. If it is to the interest  of British Columbia to have the gold  which lies in its streams d.<rovored the  people of British Columbia will best serve  the interests ol their province by encouraging and not restricting the search ior  such gold.   Where Bachelors Were Pined.  Ancient Pome was severe with its bachelors,who were made to pay heavy lines,  and were subjected to even worse treatment,'-i'or it is on record t hat Camillu-,  after the siege of Veil,-compelled them lo  marry tlie widows of those soldiers a\ ho  had fallen in battle. In the time of .Augustus married men were, preferred for  filling public offices. Romans who had as  many as three children were exempt from  the payment of personal taxes, and they  were paid instead by the bachelors. Pinto  .condemned unmarried men to be fined,  and at Sparta they wore driven at certain  times to the temple of Hercules by the  women, who chastised them in true military style. In'modern times women were  sent; . over' to the French settlement of  Canada after the''men. and in 'order to  compel unwilling bachelors to marry they  were heavily taxed.  Two Thlng-s British, Columbia Needs,  (loldwin Smith, in the Weekly Sun,  touches upon two matters which at the  present time have an interest for the people of this province, and for the members  of premier Scmlin's cabinet, lie says:  "Lord Aberdeen's parting aduionil ions to  us are a well-paid judiciary aud a permanent- civil service. The judiciary ought  to be so paid that the bench may .attract  ability from the bar. It is not necessary >  that the salary of a judge should for this  purpose-be equal to the income of a leading barrister, since tin; judgeship attracts  by the dignity and security of the position. But it i-; good economy to pay the  judges'well. Kugland finds that it,is. and  she pays her judges at-_;i rate far 'beyond  our scale or means. Time is saved aud  appeals nri! prevented when the judge is  strong,enough to haA'c full control of his  court."

SATURDAY   MORNING '.. -NO VKMBKR' 2fi, 189-S  The  judges   of   Ontario   are   growing  tired of the game which tlie politicians of  that province are putting up with'respect  to. controverted elections, and  in dismissing  the Ilaldimand  petition  last   week,  Justice  Osier denounced   the system   of,  sawing-off   as   disgraceful.      Jn   Ontario  'since''-the  recent  elections some seventy,  petitions  were   filed,   and .seventy   men  swore that they believed that the seventy  seats concerned had been won by corrupt  practices, but out of this seventy but ten  cases have gone to  trial.    In  some cases  the justice  complained that  the  time of  the court had been spent in  proving corruption,   after   which    an    adjournment  would be secured in  order  to  put, in evi-  dence  of agency.    Then instead  of proceeding with the case the party managers  arranged   a   saw-off  Avith  some   equally  shaky seat,  and   the  whole  inatter  was  dropped.    The party managers are not so  much concerned in stamping out corrup-  ktion as in seeing that their opponents do  not profit more by it than they do themselves, and what is true of the party managers in Ontario is true of Lhe party managers   in. this-  province,   when: the spectacle  of a   gi'find   saw-off of thirty seals  was recently.witnessed.  A letter to the Triiu'XE from Winnipeg intimates that the star of Clifford  Sifton is on the wane, and the proceeding--at; the last monthly meeting of the  Liberal As-< >eiai ion of Winnipeg con firms  this." At this meeting ;i resolution was  introduced, in 'which th:; association recorded its npproval of the .generaI jjoiicy j  of the Latu-i  resolution was that the latter part of it  which referred to Clifford Sifton should  be struck out, but after a fight of five  hours it was retained on a division of 07  to 36.    It is generally understood that the provincial government is experiencing some  difficulty in finding a suitable man for  the vacancy in the gold commissioner's  office, Avhich Avill be created by the retirement of gold commissioner Dennis. There  are, of course, several candidates out for  the ollice. but they are only such men as  a beggarly sulary of ��100 per mouth  would attract.. Prior to the announcement of the cut in the gold commissioner's salary the names of two or three  very capable men were mentioned in connection with the office, but since the cut  they have withdrawn from the field. For  the information of the members of the  Semi in cabinet it may be stated that a  cheap commissioner at $100 per month is  more economy than the people of this  section want. The general opinion is  that the government is making a mistake  iu this matter. It stands to gain nothing  in Kootenay by earning for itself the distinction of being cheap and nasty.  Police Magistrate Macrae,  of Victoria,   was   formally   dismissed    by    lhe  Serulin administration on  Tuesday.     Ex-  magistrate Macrae's commissions will for  tlie future be divided, and   the tAvo  men  who succeed him will be paid a great deal  less than  the  city of Victoria formerly  paid  Macrae   as   police   magistrate.    All  told magistrate Macrae was much better  paid than any of the counts'" court judges.  He received $200 per mouth from the city  as   police   magistrate,  $500    per   annum  as stipendiary  magistrate, as well as all  the fees as magistrate in small debts matters, which was probably the-most profitable branch of his  work.    The  men  who  .succeed him areH. G. Hail and P. S: Latup-  uui.ii of Victoria.    The former will  act as  police magistrate at a salary of $100 per  month, and as a stipendiary magistrate  for the fun of the thing.    P..S. Lampman  miin will ace as magistrate in, the small  debts court and receive a salary of $100  per annum, all fees going into the general  revenue of the province.  The criminal statistics of the dominion  for the year ending on September 30th  show, that but 11.3 per cent, of the number  of persons convicted professed to have tio  religion. Of those convicted who professed to be members of religious denominations, the Baptists were credited, with  _.2 por cent.: Church of England, .1.7.1 per  cent.: Methodists, 9.1 per cent.: Presbyterians, 0.-1 per cenf: .13 o man Catholics,  II..") per cent.: other denominations, ]_.-!  per cent. The total number of convictions for the year was ;"5,72l, or 11.00 I'or  each 10,000 inhabitants.  aged. F<Yom the proceedings at a recent  meeting of the company it appears that  nearly two years ago the directors received an unfavorable report from their  manager, which was in a measure suppressed, and in July, 1807, they received a  second report confirming that of December, JSSO, in which the company's property  was stated to be practically valueless.  The complaint against the Golden Cache  j directors is that they suppressed the unfavorable reports and deceiA'ed their  stockholders and the public generally.  O'Connor Starts a Libel Suit.  T. J'. O'Connor has taken legal proceedings against the anchor and publishers of  Barry OVBrien's lite of Parnoil. published  last week. Although the biography  avoids the private.tragedy leading to his  downfall, it measures the marvelous magnetism of the man, and the newspapers  reprint extracts at great length. The  strange thing is that, though the work  was done ably and dispassionately. Mr.  O'Connor immediately protested against  a reference to himself. Jt appears that  he objects to a passage dealing with the  famous Galway election. When Mr. Par-  uell had Captain O'Sliea returned to the  house of commons against all obstacles,  Mr. O'Connor was elected from a division  of Liverpool and also from Galway. He  decided to sit for Liverpool. The trouble  arises from the pages dealing with the  election of his successor in Galway. It is  remarkable that the fullest account of  this incident is in Mr. O'Counor's own  popular life of Parnell. The publishers  of Mr. O'Brien's biography say that despite' the alleged libel they will continue  to furnish copies of the book. Mr.  Charles Russell, son of the chief justice,  will appear in behalf, of Mr. O'Brien  and justify the entire contentsof' the  book.       '  ... The Dreyfus Drama.  The Dreyfus revision seems to be somewhat of a farce. Dreyfus will not be in  the dock to face his accusers, tAvo advocates having been sent to the Isle du  'Diable to communicate with him, and  prepare his defense. The government  will see to it that the proceedings of the  court of cassation ate not made public,  and altogether justice will be done iif the  dark, .which is not unnatural, seeing that  justice is blind. Apropos of the revision  one newspaper says that comte Ester-'  hat/.y was heard to remark that general  Billot, the former minister of Avar,'had  given him 80,000 francs to forge the  bordereau. .

' i (JUIIKBNT RATK OK 1NTT WREST PAID  THE   SHABBY   MAN'S   HORSE   WON.  A mixed party of turf followers was at  Washington .last week i'or the Benuing.s  meeting, when some interesting reminiscences were indulged iu, of the happenings on the outlaw tracks of iormer years.  " When the outlaw track.over at Alexander Island, across the Potomac, was  running a few years back," said a New  York player, '"I came down here from  the wind-up meeting in New York one  fall to see if there was anything in the  game in these parts. Then, as now, I  was playing and not laying. So this  Alexander Island happening that I'm  ..going to tell you about didn't bother me  any, bad as it knocked a lot of the books.  ���' I got here before the Alexander Island  meeting began. A couple of days before  the gtime was to be on, while I was in the  Pennsylvania avenue refreshment headquarters of tlie boys who came here from  New York and other tracks to write' the  tickets, a seedy-looking chap, who looked  as if the elements had conspired to make  him smoke a bum pipe in tlie game of life  for a long time previously, walked iu aud  edged around to the back room where  the bookies were figuring on the amount  of fresh money they were about to begin  taking out of tho national capital. The  .tough-looking man had a horsy look and a  horsy smell about him, and as soon as 1  saw him 1. knew that he followed them in  some sort of a hanger-on capacity, lie  walked over to a tabic where a number of  tho bookmakers were seated.  "Say," said he, leaning his hands on  the table and addressing the party in  general. ' you people are sports, ain't  you ?'  -' "The looks tiie hookies cave the ihab-  by-looking man were intended to convey  T.o him the idea that they weren't publicly posing as hot tamules, anyhow. Tlie  man got no reply.  " ' You're going to make books across  the way, ain't you?' the tip-ngainst-it  looking"chap asked, with an inquiring  look all around.  " ' Well, what if we are ? ' asked one. of  the bookies, just i'or the good-natured  sake of breaking the silence.  "'Well,' said the down-at-the-heel  sport, ' I've got a couple of nags that have  been running for the past six weeks over  at the Maryland outlaw. They haven't  been one, two, six in any race over there,  and I've gone broke paying entrance fees  for 'em, Maybe they'll be able to do better over across the way at Alexander.  I want to chuck 'em in a couple oyer  there, anyhow, for luck. But I owe a $o0  feed bill to the Maryland outlaw people,  and [ can't get my plugs away from there  until the thirty's paid. Now, you people  are sports, and so'tn f. What I want to  know is, will yon people cough up the  thirty for me as a loan, so's f can get that  pair of mine down here ? '  "The bookies listened to the man with  gradually increasing smiles, and when he  finished they gave him the laugh in  chorus.  " ' Stop your kidding,' said one of them.  'I can get all the outlaw racehorses I  want for $2 a head.'  "They ail chipped in with a crack at  the doleful-looking sport, who appeared  to be rather a guileless sort ot a chap for  a man with a short stable of racers.  " 'They're a good pair, all right, and  one of em's on edge, too,' he persisted.  ���'He worked six furlongs in 1.21 iiat a  couple of days ago.'  "The bookies all looked at the man as  if he were demented.  " ' One twenty-one flat for a six-furlong  route !'exclaimed one of them. 'Why,  look here, my friend, you're not smoking  hard enough to suppose that you can win  down here with a skate that does well  when he works six furlongs iu that time,  are you? ' Don't you know that there's a  whole bunch over.there now that can go  that route in $1...1.(> or better ?'  " ' Well, they've got a chance, anyhow,'  said the shabby man. ' Do i get the $-'30  to get 'em out o' hock ? '  " The bookies all turned their faces tlie  other Wciy then, and when the man with  the pair of hocked nags saw that it wasn't  any use he dug his hands into his pockcts  disconsolately and shambled out.  " On the day that the meeting opened I  saw the shabby man in the betting ring.  I was behiucl him when he handed one of  the bookies a $a on one of the horses entered in the second race of the day. The  bookmaker had belonged to the partry  that gave the laugh to the shabby man  when he asked for the $'!().  "'Playing 'em, eh?' said' the bookie,  smiling at the run-down-iuoking man.  'Couldn't get your pair away from the  Maryland outlaw, .1 -uppose.'  " ' Ves, I dug up and got 'cm  tho man. 'They're here now.  you just gave me a ticket; on at  belongs to me.'  " 'Oh, is that so?' asked   tin  out,' said  The one  .-jil.UO to Jd;1  book ma-  THE ��� B_A_iT_KI  OF  NELSON  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  ker. ' Well, I hope you win. But you've  got a couple of 3 to o shots to beat, you  know.' K.  " ' I got a chance,' was all the man said,  walking away.  " T took n look at his horse, the rank  outsider in the race, when ho went to the  post with the others. He was a six-year  old gelding, and he looked rank and broken down. A boy that the shabby man  had brought along from the. Maryland  outlaw was on the horse. 1't was a mile  race, and the horse was twelfth in a field  of twelve. I saw the-gloomy-looking,  shabby man in the paddock after the race  superintending the rubbing down of his  nag. He seemed to be a whole lot in' the  dumps.  "The same horse was entered in the  fourth race oh the next day's card. It  was a field of crack outlaw performers,  and his horse was again the extreme outsider at-10 to 1. 1 saw the shabby man  walk around, putting down .$2 bets here  and there on his plug, and I felt sorry for  him. The bookies simply smiled commis-  eratingly at him. The hard-looking  man's horse finished ninth in a field of  nine.  " 'Why don't yon cut it out?' asked  one of the bookmakers of the man with  the tough appearance. ' You're wasting  your stake.'  " 'I got a chance," was the reply.  "The man got out his other horse on  the following day. He got 50 to 1 on him  for. the six-furlong race, and his plug,  another rank aud no-account looker, finished last. This was the horse that could  work six furlongs iu 1.21. The seedy  man's confidence in his pair of skates  seemed rather pathetic to me.  ���'������After each of his horses had been in  about half-a-dozen races, always finishing  last, the both of them, aud the seedy man  putting twos and fives down on them  right along until the bookies felt like not  talcing his money, I thought he'd take a  tumble and quit the game. But on the  eleventh day of the meeting his ' mile  racer,' the six-year-old gelding, was entered again. Me went to the.post with a  field composed of the cracks among the  outlaws. T happened to be close to the  seedy man when lie went around, according to his custom, putting flown small  bet�� on his horse. He seemed to be rather  better fixed than usual that day, for he  had quite a bundle of fives with him.  '��� What do .1 get on my horse?' he-asked  the first bookie he struck.  ������The layer grinned, for he 'know there  were wight or ten good ones in the race,  three or four of them quoted around even  money.  " ' I've got to to 1 hung up about him,  and all you want of it,'said the buokie.  ' You can write your own ticket, in fact.'  ���' ' Hundred to '1 ? ' asked the seedy man.  " ' Why, sure,' replied the bookmaker.  And he took $5 of the ' owner's' money at  100 to 1.,  "Just out of curiosity L followed the  seedy man in his tour of the books and" I  saw him put down $70 in $5 bets on his  horse to win at 100 to 1. It struck me  then that there was to be something done  on the seedy man's horse. But 1 wasn't  capping the bookies' game, and I've got a  fad for minding my own business, anyhow, and so I kept off the race and went  into the stand to watch it. I had a hunch  to play the seedy man's horse for a good  wad, but I reflected that if I got on and  tlie good thing went through the bookies  'ud be suspicious about such a weli-kuown  player as 1 was being in on it. and.in the  investigation the seedy man might be cut  out, and I didn't want to knock him. But  I surely was a whole lot interested in the  way that race was to come out.  "I took a good look at the seedy man's  horse as they filed past the stand to the  post. He looked much better and pretty  nippy at that'for such a rancid outsider.  The same boy that had ridden the horse  in his first race at Alexander Island and  landed him nowhere was up. It was a  mile race.  "The favorite, a horse called Walcott���  -I to 5 on in the betting���got off ou the  right foot with a jump and started to tiptoe the field. At the quarter he led by  three lengths, with the second choice, a  good outlaw named Halcyon, beginning  to set sail tor him. The rest of the field  of thirteen were all. strung out, the seedy  man's horse 'way in the ruck. But I kept  my glasses on that horse all the way, and  I could see that at the half he was under  the devil's own pull. The boy had half-a-  dozen wraps on him, and I felt then, even  if the favorite was still a good four  lengths in the lead, and going easily, that  there was but one horse in the race, and  that horse the seedy man's. It was a  watermelon just opening, but I suppose I  was the only man at the track that happened to have got next to the game. The  judges didn't observe, of course, that the  seedy owner's horse was under twenty  wraps, for they looked upon bini as a  dead one and-paid no attention to his  running.  "At the far turn Woicott, the favorite,  was still three or four lengths ahead,  Halcyon, the No. 2 choice, having fallen  back, beaten out. They were all in a  bunch behind the leader, and all going  mighty well at the head of the stretch.  All the time i had my glass focused on  tlie horse belonging the shabby man.  Woicott seemed to be just galloping, as I  say, at tlie head of the stretch, when 1  saw the jockey suddenly sic down on the  shabby man's hor.se and start to ride  a-horseback. It was pretty, I tell you, to  see that old six-year old hopoutandcha.se  the favorite down the stieic.-ii. The old  horse, without, ;t bit of whipping or. spurring the boy had simply given himhis  head���-pumped up like an express engine,  and the favorite was taken out of his gallop and extended, under whip and- spur  before they wero half way down the  stretch. Passing the stand, "Walcotl aud  the seeds'- man's horse were noso-'and-nose.  the hitter gaining at every jump. Walcott was beaten a head on the wire by  the rank outsider in a pretty finish.  "The stewards had the seedy man in  the stand immediately and then called  the boy up. It was an astonishing reversal of form, and action seemed to be  called for. The seedy man's story was  straight, however. He .had given his  horse a half pint of whisky before the  race and he supposed that was responsible  for the win. Doping horses went all  right at Alexander, and so the stewards  couldn't kick about that. The stewards  touched on the ringer question, but the  seedy man was such a simple kind of  duck, and his story was so connected  about past owners of his two horses and  their life-long careers ou theoutlaw tracks  that the stewards finally declared the  race all hunk and the bets stood.  "I saw the shabby man cash his $7000  worth of 100 to 1 tickets. He didn't gloat  any over the bookios who had grinned in  his teeth before the race���just collected  his money quietly, saying: 'Well, I had  a chance, didn't I?' The bookies were  confident that the seedy man had a  mighty valuable pair of ringers on his  staff, and that one of them had just won  the mile race in the beautiful, finely  drawn nose finish, but they couldn't  welch on their, bets. With his $7000 the  seedy man took his string of two away  the next day.  "Iran across him last'summer at the  St. Louis fair grounds racing. He was no  longer a seeds' man. He was covered  with gig lamps, and had it in every pocket.  Said 1 to him:  ',' 'D'ye remember that neat 1.00 to 1  thiug you pulled off in Washington a few  years ago? There was some quality in  that old outlaw of yours that got the  money.' tv  "He looked at me with a broad grin.  "'Outlaw be damned,'said he. 'That  horse was one of the cracks of the west,  on licensed tracks. He was a bit of paint.  He had done a mile iu ] :39_ twice���round  miles���and he was as game as a wild  turkey egg. Me aud my partner pulled  down $20,000 or so, running him as a  ringer all over the country. I" was going  to openmy six furlonger in Washington  that time,' but $7000 was enough. My six  furlonger was a crack from 'Frisco. He  was dyed, too. Six furlongs in .L:U was a  common canter for him. The Willie  Wises back in the east are not so mansr at  that.,are they?'"  HISTORY   OP   THE   BIBLE.  The various stages through which the  Kngiish bible passed before reaching the  version in use at present have an interest  I'or bible readers. Thirty-nine of the  sixtsr-six books of the bible had been  written in Hebrew a good many years,  and the 27 books in Creek about :j()0 years  before the end of the fourth century.  There were many ver-ions of thorn, including that by St. Jerome, who thought  it would be advantageous if all these versions were compared, and he prepared a  revision known as the Vulgate, and  which was of importance, tis it materially  influenced the authorized version of Kill.  This work of St. Jerome was only completed iu the face of great discouragement from the authorities ot the church,  notwithstanding which, by its intrinsic  merit, it won its was' to universal recognition of the Latin churches. Before the  revival of learning in the lath century  Greek was an almost unknown tongue in  western Europe, hence the various versions were taken, not from the original,  but from Jerome's Latin version. King  Alfred and others had translated portions  of the bible into the English tongue, but  it was not until the I-1th century that  John Wycliffe published the whole bible  in English. When the Wycliffe translation was published, in ]3_!3, the church  authorities again did their best to prevent it from being read, but it became a  vers' well known work. It, however, was  but' a translation of a translation, Wycliffe not knowing Hebrew, nor did any-  one else in England at that time.  Exactly 100 years after Wyclilfe's death,  in 14-4, was born William Tyndale, who  perhaps had more than-any other man to  do with making the translations which  are iu use at present. In the interval  great events had happened: thirty, years  before Tyndale's birth the printing press  had began its career, and owing to the  fact that Constantinople had fallen into  the hands of the Turks, its Greek scholars  had been driven intoTtaly, bringing with  them knowledge of the tongue not hitherto known in western Europe. They  brought the new testament in its original  language. In -1500 Erasmus became professor of Greek at Cambridge. Tyndale  was drawn there and the history of the  bible as it exists today begins with Tyndale. Driven from England and hunted  from place to place by the emissaries of  the church, Tyndale never wavered in his  purpose, and before hi.s death he had  translated from the original tongues the  whole of the 'new testament, the Pentateuch, his version of Jonah, and printed  them in English. His translations were  on the whole accurate. The next great  name in this connection is Miles Cover-  dale, who. when the English church, in  W.'A. threw oft the supremacy of Home,  published a translation, and two year's  after Thomas Matthew made up ti bible  composed of Tyndale's bible and Cover-  dale's version to complete what Tyndale  had left unfinished. In I'M the great  bible appeared .and received the approval  ! of King Henry VIII.' The parish priests  were ordered to place the bible in- their  churches for their people to read. The  times changed and there was u period of  persecution, chaos and bible burning until  the death of Mary,, when the exiles came  back, and in 1'iU'J the revised translation  a ope;.-, rod. What is know/! as the bishop's  bible -appeared in I-~J.SS., The Hampton  court con'fereiicc ii> James I. n-ign re-  milted iu the' revised version of the  Bishop's and Goneva bible, which continued in use until the last revision.  NEWS   OF   THE   WEEK.  in IhoSydnes' legislature J. Kirkpatrick  recently moved that a committee be  appointed to examine Cressw'ell, thePara-  ���matta lunatic, said to be the missing heir  riii ��� the .famous Tichborue cane. He was  examined once before, and the opponents  of-his claim say it was not proven that he  was the heir. Mr. Kirkpatrick asserts  that, in tlie previous examination Cress-  well was not examined at all, but some  other lunatic was substituted for him by  tricky lawyers. The order for a new examination on this ground was lost by one  vote.

Things appear to be coining Ko.-s  Thompson's way in the town which lie  staked as a pre-emption. This 3-ear it,  looks as if he would be elected mayor of  Jtossland by acclamation. He has already  received a generously-signed requisition,  in which his consent to stand for the office  ; is sought, and has likewise the hearty  support of the two local papers.  F. J. 'Farley, who for the past six years  has been in business iu Nelson, realized  upon his interests this week, und as a result he will go back ��0 Ohio with something over 921,000 iin his reward for close  application to business during tlie six  years. In leaving Xelson i\Jr. Farley desires the Tkiucnk to thank his former  customers aud friends for their patronage, which enabled him to score the success which he has.  H. li. Wood, formerly foreman at the  V'mir mine, will probably make another  trip to Dawson City in the spring in the  interests of the Yukon Cold Fields. The  directors of the company talk of staking  him \vith $100,000 so that he can pick up  any good buys which may offer.' Wood  is at present in London.

At the Thanksgiving concert Mr. Walther made a most  favorable impression with his violin, and  the circumstance that on Thursday evening Mr. Walther gave up his own concert'  in order to assist in raising funds for the  public library should ensure him a good  house this evening.

Should Take a Dose of Davenport.  The best cartoon that  has appeared  in  Punch for many months is causing no end  of trouble among the English newspapers,  it  refei'red  to  the  Fashoda  dispute, describing the French soldier as  a  monkey  on top of a hand organ, whom .'John ]3uil  tells to "go away.'"    Military  men   in the  I London   papers  have  warmly  protest eel  ; against  the  wanton  insult   to a gallant  j j'Yenehman, Marchand, who. by universal  j admission, has performed one of the most  j gallant feats of African  exploration.    Sir  I John  Tenniel, who  drew  the  cartoon, is  1 sharply criticized in the London Standard  j and other papers not alone for its  vulgar  : viciousness,   but   for   its   entire   lack   of  | humor.    Labouchere, in Truth, characterizes it  as a   ^gratuitous  insult-   to    the  French nation, an insult unredeemed by a  particle of wit."  couver. The electoral district of Westminster may be somewhat, enlarged. Mr.  JBostock's constituency, as well as that of  Mr. Maxwell, will be re-arranged in such  a manner that the populous section of the  Yale-Cariboo district will be known as  the YTale-Kootenay district, and Cariboo,  in all probability, will be restored, and so  arranged that it will embrace all the northern section of the district of Bun-arcl  and Cariboo, including the Stickine. Mc-  J3ame, Laketou, Skeena, Omineca, Llich-  field, Quesnelle, Clinton and Victoria  divisions of Cassiar. Lillooet and Cariboo  provincial registration districts. This  constituency, iu the course of time, will  have to be re-divided, as the population  therein increases. The chief mistake  which the World makes is in overlooking  the claim of .East and West Kootenay for  a representative of its own, without being  Lacked on to Vale or any other portion of  the province.  mHBEE    "W"_��__S    _A_    TXIIVEIE] ,  l<>  (lie  mouth,   but, at   present  it is soared v  WIh'ii   the   lingers   wito   used   for convoying  food  oiisideivd   good   form.
