 SlvA  KOOTENAY  Has  Mines that are Paying Dividends and  Hundreds of Properties that' can be Made  Dividend  Paying Mines.  SEXTH   \TEAK-M). ol.  NELS(M,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  tfOVEMBEK J!), 1.808.  KOOTENAY  Has   a   Mineral   Output    of  Upwards   ol   Oee  Million    Dollars    Evr-ry    Month  in' The   Year  TWO   DOLLARS  A YEAR.  THREE SEATS LEFT IN . DOUBT.  Two Held by (Government Members at Present  and One by the Opposition.  The report published in the Tiuhuxe on  Saturday to the effect that a saw-off had  been arranged, whereby thirty of the  election protests had been dropped, was  confirmed on Wednesday when the cases  were called before Justice'Martin at Victoria.  Sere vs. Eberts was the first case called.  Mr. Duff appeared for the petitioner, and  ���said he had no evidence to .offer. Mr.  Hunter appeared for the respondent. .  Jlis Lordship: Mr. Duff offers no evidence; have you any motion to make, Air.  Hunter?  Air. Hunter���[ move that the petition  be dismissed.  His Lordship (to Air. Duff)���Have yon  anything to say in answer to the motion?  Air. Duff���The petition will be dismissed  with no costs to either side, and the security deposited will be paid over to Air.  Wallbridge, the solicitor on the record  for the petitioner.  His Lordship���You don't ask for costs,  Air. Hunter?   '--���  Air. Hunter���No, my lord.  The order was ,thus made, except that  the money will be retained pending the  settlement of charges for advertising the  petition, as in some cases it was said that  exorbitant charges had been made. If  necessary, these questions will be settled  in chambers.  Then followed the other cases, in each  of which a similar order was made. The  eases were as follows: AJorgan vs. Bryden  (North Nanaimo), Argyle vs. Pooley (Es-  quimalt), Cawley v\s. Hume (Nelson), Munn  vs. Henderson (New Westminster), Gregg  vs. Helmcken, Turner. Hall and AlcPhil-  lip.s (Victoria), Gilchrist vs. AlcBride  (l)uwdney), Wilson vs. AIcKechnic (Nanaimo), Bees vs. Smith (South Nanaimo),  Knight vs. Helgesen and Kinchant (Cariboo), Tohnie vs. Neil (Albcrni), Chambers  vs. Tisdale, Cotton, Alar-tin and Alacpher-  son (Vancouver), Hard vs. Robertson  (Cowichan). Alaynard vs. Alartiu (Mess-  land), Baillie vs. Colonel Baker (Wast  Kootenay), Grant vs. Dunsmuir (Comox),  Paisley vs. ALuuro (Chilliwaek), AlcOaskili  vs. Forstor (Delta), Brown vs. Kellie  (Revelstoke), Greelman vs. Semlin, Ayl-  nier vs. Neilson (Wast Kootenay, North  Hiding), ATeKinly vs. Kicld (Richmond),  and Fletcher vs. Ellison. In each case L.  J?. Duff appeared on the government side  and for the opposition Messrs. Ileltnckou,  Hunter, GasMdy, L. Grease and Lnxton  appeared.  There yet remain but three protests to  be heard, that against Deane in North  Yale, Prentice in Ea'st Lillooet, and Booth  iu North Victoria. It is thought that  Prentice and Booth will be unseated.  Fine Showinpr on the Evening Star  Samples of ore taken from the Evening  Star, near Yrnir, which is being operated  by the Fairmount Gold Alining Company,  Limited, have assayed $2S to the ton, the  values being one ounce of gold and 14.2  ounces in silver.   The shaft, now down 53  feet, is eight feefewide and all in ore and  the two feet running towards the foot-  wall went $12 to the ton. Picked samples,  went $41.80, or two ounces in gold and  three ounces in silver to the ton. The  width of the vein at this point is. not  known, but it is thought to be at least 25  feet, as the vein on the surface is that  width. A horse-whim,is to be immediately,  installed, and the intention is to sink to  the 150-foot level before cross-cutting will  be commenced.  ��� East Kootenay Ore for Trail Smelter.  It is reported that the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company will quote very favorable rates on lead ores from Aloyie City  to the company's smelter at Trail. It is  believed that the smelter will be ready to  treat lead ores about the first of Decern-,  ber, and that the delay in putting in the  siding at Aloyie has some connection with  the condition of the Trail smelter. The  owners of the St. Eugene mine behind  Moyie City have some 1,500 tons of ore  ready for shipment, aud the Lake Shore  and Aloyie and Lake Shore will make  initial shipments so so soon as facilities  are provided.  Manufacture of Coke Commenced.  Last week four of the coke ovens of the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company at Fernie  were tired, aud the work of manufacturing coke was commenced. The company  has fifty coke ovens completed, and fires  in the others will be started at once.  Fernie is to be populated with Nova  Scotia coal miners, and .150 miners with  their families are now on their way to the  new mines. Twenty-four miners with  their families arrived at Fernie last week.  Redistribution Will Be Made Next Session.  Hon. David Aliils, minister of justice iu  an interview upon the subject of .redistribution stated that the policy, outlined at  the Ottawa convention in 1803. would be  carried out by tlie Laurier government in  regard to re-distribution of seat1-', He  stated that the introduction of a measure  in this respect did not depend upon the  census, nor was it necessary for tlie Liberal party to wait until the census was  known.   Turner Overlooked Kis Libel Case.  The fail assiy.es opened at Victoria.Tuesday morning before justice W;f|lkem. The  libel cases Rogina versus Nichoi, which  was adjourned from last assiy.es, was on  the list. Charles Wilson, Q. C, and R.  'Cassidy appeared for the private prosecu  tion aud W. IT. Langly and Alexis Martin  for the accused. Langly applied for an  adjournment and read in support his own  affidavit, stating that Hon. Air. Turner,  ex-premier, was a material and necessary  witnesson behalf of the accused and he  was bound over by the magistrate to appear at the trial and give evidence, but  he was now in England. On that ground  he asked for an adjournment. After some  argument the trial was adjourned till  February (3th next.  EXTENT   OF   GOVERNMENT   CONTROL  THE   DRY   ROT   IN   SPAIN.  Over  the  Canadian   Pacific Railway Company  ���   ' as Stated by Clifford Sjfton.  Ac the Hardy banquet in Toronto on  Tuesday evening Clifford Sifton told a  sympathetic audience ' what the Liberal  government had accomplished in the way  of safeguarding the interests of the public  when subsidizing the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company to construct the Crow's  Nest Pass railway.    He said :  '" We provided, first, that the railway  should be built upon the conditionthat at  any time hereafter the government of'  Canada might give running powers over  the road to any other railway that might  apyly i'or them. There should.be no  monopoly, but practically, to all intents  and purposes, the railway, though built  by the G. P. II., should be a free railway  ���a highway for any company that may  hereafter apply for leave to use it. That  principle had never been embodied in  railway legislation at Ottawa, until this  government took office.    (Cheers).  "Then, sir, we went further; we took  absolute and unrestricted control of the  rates upon that line ; next we took absolute control of the rates from every point  upon the C. P. R. to every point on the  Crow's Nest Pass railway and other lines  with which it may connect in the south ;  aud we took absolute control of all rates  from the Crow's Nest Pass railway and  every point upon it aud other points upon  any of its connections, back to the main  line of the C. P. 11. or any of its branches.  So that you will see that we have, first,  the right to give auy company running  powers over it; next, we have absolute  control of all rates into the country and  out of it, so that, to all intents and purposes, it is a government railway, though  operated by the C. P. R.; and it is under  the control of the government and people  of Canada, whose servants the government are."  This deliverance of the Minister of the  Interior should be filed away for refer-,  ence by the executive of the South Kootenay Board of Trade. and.when lhe next  difference between the railway company  and the merchants crops up they will  have an opportunity of ascertaining  what merit there is in ������Clifford Sif ton's  claim' that the Liberal government controls the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and not the railway company the  government. c<  ; NEW   GOLD   STRIKES   NEAR    GLENORA.  Discoverers Succeed in Securing an Average of  Fifty Cents a'Pan.  This week two promising discoveries of  placers are reported from the Stickine.  One is on a creek ''���flowing into that river  at what is called the Big Bend, some fifty  miles above Glenora." The gravel here  lias yielded fifty cents a pan for an average of fifteen pans. Quartz running $97.50  has been found in the same vicinity. The  discoverer says he panned out gold  enough to live on all summer and bring  him back to Vancouver. '  The other discovery is at Glacier creek,  a tributary of the Stickine flowing in  from the south, six ������ miles between Glenora. Glacier creek is about 30 miles long.  It rises in a lake surrounded by glaciers,  streams from which feed it. No gold is  found at the lake. The stream is very  rocky and Hows through many canyons.  It cannot be followed to the lake, to reach  which it is necessary to climb over two  high ranges of mountains. There is gold  in the bed of the creek, but the boulders  are so many that, except very rich deposits are found, there will be no profit in  working it. Between the canyons are  benches. At discovery the benches are  four in number, one above the other, aud  each.is .'300 to 400 feet wide. In these gold  is found distributed through a paystreak  about two feet thick.  A Question for the Politicians.  Goldwiu Smith puts this question to  tlie straight parts' men, which they will  have some dil'ficnlty in answering: It is  said that parts' is a necessity in politics ;  that a man must belong to one  party or  the other ; that independence is not practicable, and even that it is not honest.  Now, if this is so, we want to know dis-  tinctly what is the difference in principle  between the two parties in Canada?  .What is it except, mere blind custom or  ���family���tradition that makes a man attach  himself to one or to the other? This is an  interesting question. We confess that  we are unable to answer it ourselves.  Good Strike on the Elisc.  The Lerwick Gold Alining Company has  just met with another nice body of ore on  the Elise, which as.sa.vs from $.'3.00 to  $00.28. The upraise has been completed  from the tunnel where the vein was crosscut at a depth of 125 feet. The tunnel is  320 feet in length. A drift has been run  on the vein along the hanging wall, and  tlie last seven feet shows u decided improvement. Drifting will be continued  for some time to come. Considerable  stock has changed hands within the past  Aveek.  An assay of a sample taken from the  Emma gave$58 to the ton, principally  copper. An assay of a sample from the  Kalispell returned $20. The Kalispell is a  copper proposition and has a ledge 12 feet  wide. These'properties .are situated six  miles north of Yrnir and are owned by .).  S. Ilobbins.  On the Tamarac the hoisting plant is  completed. This will greatly accelerate  the progress of development.  The Erie wagon road is now completed  as far as the Second Relief mine. The  owners of this property will commence  shipping'ore at an earls' date.  It has been arranged to make a survey  of the Alorniug and Evening Stars, which  are the property of the Fairmont Gold  Alining Company, Limited.  It Was Not a Case of Murder.  The Cascade Cits' murder case has dwindled down to a death from pneumonia.  A coroner's inquest and post-mortem revealed the fact that Hazleburg's death  was due to pneumonia, and was not hastened by any wounds which he-received  from Lamb, the man with whom he had  the fight. Lamb, however, has been .sentenced to a term of two months imprisonment upon a charge of common assault.  Supposed Suicide at McGuitcan.  Foreman Wicks, of the Silver Bell,' was  found  dead  with  his  throat cut at McGuigan Thursday   morning.     It   is   supposed that he committed suicide.  News of the Nation's Disasters Received With  the Utmost Indifference.  Sir Hugh Gelsen Re id writes that the  people of Spain do not seem to care much  for the results of the war. In a letter to  the London Echo he says :  " Even in the capital, with all its activities, there is little, if ans', 'real  intersest  in   the   peace   negotiations   which   drag  their slow length along at Paris.   On the  vers' day that held the fate of Spain, and  the decisive  news   from   Cuba   was   expected,   the  bull  ring,  the  grand casino  and  all   the theatres  were  thronged   by  light-hearted and pleasure-loving crowds,  nobles and peasants alike callous to defeat or victory.    When  the  fatal intelligence came.,one who was on the spot tells  'me there was little, if any,   emotion, aud  the wild festivities went on without interruption, the bull ring having a transfixed  audience of over 14,000; history repeating  itself; fiddling and the country in flames.  That shows whs' Spain has lost her colonies; why even the  wonderful island of  Cuba years ago ceased   to be a soiuce of  revenue  to her;    why,   though   she   has  occupied the island for nearly 400 years,  ouls' a tenth of its area  has  been placed  under cultivation ;   why 08 per cent,   of  her people can neither read nor write.  The dry rot of superstition and tyranny  has disintegrated the morals of the state  and the people; the higher classes pros'  upon the masses, and the masses have become untrue not only to the country but  to themselves. For them hope died years  ago; thes' grew into ,the belief that all  they could expect would be the crumbs  and crusts that might be,.flung to them,  and poverty has increased and thesr have  adjusted their lives to less and less of the  world's comforts until now, in hope and  energy aud ambition, they are but a grade  removed from beggars'.  It would be a mercy to Spain could  there be inaugurated there a revolution1  that would do for her what the triumph  of Jaurez over the invaders and the  traitors at home did for Afexico. To compel an honest accounting of the revenues;  to establish' compulsory free schools; to  abolish the needless attaches to both the  offices of thechurch aud state; to promote  and reward faithful services and to punish thieves of low aud high degree; to  leave it to the people to make their own  laws and then to compel obedience to  them, and to every man insure the full  reward of his earnings. Twents'-five  years of that would make a transformation in the wonderful country, for the  stock of the people was originally good,  and it might be restored. Of course the  first essential would be absolute separation of church and state,, the fixing of the  status of each so that neither could  trench upon the other, and in this the  most difficult part would be to establish  and compel the maintenance and attendance upon the free schools.  Nothing less than a sovereign powersuch  as Jaurez established and Diaz has maintained could accomplish that, but Spain  will surely languish until that rule shall  be inaugurated. Then upon the children  would have to be impressed anew that  what a man has, he must earn, and this  should be attended by a guarantee that  what he earned should be his. But at  present there seems to be no son of Spain  equal to such a work, and were there one,  we suspect that he would be assassinated  before he could draw to him the spirits  needed to make a triumph with. A wise  man was talking recently .of the signs  which govern the planets, aud reasoned  that the life of a nation only endured  while its planet is in rule, which he computed to be 2100 years. It is within 100  years of that time since the great Julius  had the battle of his life with the barbarians , of Spain. Who knows but that  the elements of progress have all ceased  to exist in that land and that it is time  for its occupation bs' a new and advancing  race?  YMIR   MINING   NOTES.  THE   PUBLIC   LIBRARY   PROJECT.  An unsuccessful attempt was made last  week by local parties for outside capital  to secure a bond on the Alabou and Ohio  claims, adjoining the Enterprise group,  on Ten Mile creek, and owned by Aiessrs.  Kirk wood, Wells, Grant and Tunks..  There was not sufficient money forthcoming to move matters.  A good trail has been cut to the Anglo-  Saxon group,'winter quarters are erected  and five men are working the .property.  The ledge has widened to about two feet  and is fast coming into heavs' mineral  bearing rock. The owners expect to be  running into the pure stuff before long, in  which case.' this will be another Silver  mountain producer.  The Wakefield has 37 "men on its working force.  Sanclon exported 100 tons of ore during  the past week.  The Fisher Alaiden is getting out a carload of ore for shipment.  Fortsr-two tons of ore was shipped from  the Queen Bess last week.  Ore from the Comstock has commenced  to come down to Silverton for shipment.  Fifteen men are working on the Treasure Vault. The new bunkhouses are finished.  Shannon, McPhcrson and Goottschc are  in over 20 feet under ground on their property adjoining the Alurion. Thes' have a  paystreak of 10 inches, showing carbonates and galena, iu a two-foot ledge.  The Golden Wedge, on Lemon creek,  has 35 men working. The properts' is  owned bs'the Oro Alining c<c Milling Co.  They have a town'site and a sawmill near  the mine aiso. '  Hugh Sutherland has 25 men employed  on the Evening Star, and the force is to  be increased. A shaft is to be sunk on  the Columbia, adjoining the Star.  Scott McDonald, the manager of the  Payne, has left that compans', and his  successor, Carl Hand, of Butte, is now in  charge of the mine. Mr. McDonald is in  poor health and lias gone to California.  Alcohol'Scores Another Victory.  The prohibitionists have been making a  mights' war up<';n king alcohol for mans'  years.    But this year  the ancient enemy  of   the  race  lias  taken   on  new  powers.  Citizens are Taking  Hold  of the Matter in a  Very Encouraging Manner.  The ladies of the Womens' council  who  have taken up the matter of  establishing  a public, library, are  meeting with  most  encouraging success and are now  within  measurable distance of the attainment.of  .their object.  Yesterday afternoon the ladies had a  meeting iu the board of trade rooms with  the gentlemen whom they have succeeded  in interesting in the project. There were  . present Alesdames Robertson, AJcCulloch,  Stocks," Taylor, Goepel, Das', Arthur,  Akehurst, Russell, Wilson and Painter,  and Aiessrs. Houston, Robertson, Turner,  Fletcher, Hall, Lay, ITedley and Bowes.  The object of the meeting was chiefly to  discuss plans for the establishment of the  library and decide upon some plan for its  maintenance.  . Airs. AlcCulloch, as secretary, reported  that up to the, present the ladies had received in cash $107 and subscriptions  amounting to $410, making in all $G07.r In  addition to this, they have every reason  to believe that the city council will subscribe $300, which, with the proceeds of  the Thanksgiving concert and cooking  lectures, thesr expect to raise the amount  to at least $1000. The secretary also reported that at a meeting of the executive  of the local council, held on the 31th  instant, it was decided to recommend to  joint meeting (1) that the reading and  recreation room be free; (2) that the annual subscription be $2, such subscribers  to have the use of the library; (3) and that  subscribers of $10 or more be eligible to  serve as directors aud have a voice in the  election of such directors.  On ruction of J. Roderick Robertson,  seconded by J. IT. Bowes, it was resolved  that the ladies be requested to continue  ��� their canvass for funds, the opinion being  expressed that there should be available  at least $1300 before a start is made in the  matter of establishing a library. To  make up the required amount the ladies  will therefore renew their efforts, anil in  view of the advantages which are open  to subscribers, there should be no difficulty in raising the required amount.  Ans' who arc not approached by the  ladies in the matter and desire to avail  themselves of the advantages of the  library should intimate such intention to  the secretary.  The question as to whether the promoters of the library scheme should seek incorporation or not was discussed, but this  matter together with the drafting of the  recessaiy rules and regulations was re-  iiirred to a committee composed of Mes-  dames Goepel and AlcCulloch, and Messrs.  Houston, Fletcher aucl Bowes, with_ instructions to report at the next meeting.  The matter of selecting suitable rooms  for the library was referred to a committee composed of Aiessrs. Turner, Hall and  Hedley.  Airs. AlcCulloch was appointed secretary-  treasurer, pro tern, pending organization.  The next meeting  of  the library promoters will be held in the board of trade  rooms on Friday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock.  " SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  One of the esseutials of smokeless powder  is alcohol, and the result is that all the  distilleries are having a great boom. Besides what Bngland and the United States  are using, a traiuload for Japan was  shipped from 111., the other das'. Better  the quick death through the smokeless  powder than through the ancient  pickle:  OITY   COUNCIL   MEETING.  WAR   EAGLE'S   REPORT.  At .Monday afternoon's session of the  cits' council a request was made, bs' Rev.  II. S. Akehurst for one acre of ground in  the new cemetery for the purpose of a  Church of England burial ground. The  request was accompanied with a check  for teu dollars. A similar request, with a  similar enclosure, was received from W.  F. Brougham on behalf of , the Roman  Catholic'church. The local lodge of the  order of Knights of Pythias also made a  request for an acre. Agreements for the  sale of the three lots will be prepared and  executed.  C.   F.   Etter  made  an offer of   pas'ing  50 cents a ton to the cits' for, the exclusive'  privilege of cutting ice on  the cits' reser-  ' voir.    His offer was filed.  Three petitions were received for sewers  in different parts of the city. The property owners on Silica street requested  the construction of a sewer on Silica  street from Ward street to Hall, and in  return agreed to connect with .the same  and pay six months' rates in advance.  The residents and owners iu block 8,  Addition A, asked for a sewer in the  allej'way between Hoover and Observatory streets, from Stanley street to Ward  street.  The owners and residents in blocks 20  and 27 asked for an extension of the sewerage ss'Stem through the alleyways in the  said blocks, and offered to pas' one s'ear's  rates iu advance. In connection with  this request, IT. J. Evans offered 300 feet  of 8-inch pipe on the understanding that  the work be done at once aud he receive  sewerage exemption for three s'cars.  The several applications were referred  to the city engineer, with a request that  he furnish a statement as to the probable  cost of the work desired.  It was decided that no bills or placards  shall be allowed to be posted or affixed to  the electric light poles, or any city properts'. Hiid that all such bills or placards-  be removed.  The mayor was authorized  creek flowing into the Hall  connected with the sewer.

Board of Trade Discusses Necessary Steps to  Establishing' of a Divisional Point Here  At the board of trade meeting Aiouday  evening five new members were elected.  They were E. A. Crease, S. S. Fowler, G.  A. B. Hall, W. G. Li Hie, and F. W. S wanned.  The first matter which came before the  board was a memorial with respect to the  necessity of securing transportation facilities, for the Lardean country, and the  board decided to use its influence with  the dominion government with a view to  securing the necessary'-' transportation  facilities. ,  Considerable discussion took place upon  the steps necessary to induce the C. P. R.  Company to make a divisional point  of Nelson. On behalf of the city council  mayor Houston said that the present  council will open negotiations with the  railway company' and the succeeding  council could carry the matter through to  completion. With respect to the negotiations he thought that they should be  that the company's shops and plant be  exempt from taxation, and that the railway company be permitted to close the  streets at the west end of the flat in order  that they could secure the necessary  ground. Any such concessions, however,  would have to be submitted to the ratepayers. The discussion was closed by the  passage of a resolution to the effect that  the best interests of the city would be  conserved by the making of a divisional  point here by the railway company.  NEWS   OP   THE   WEEK.  The practice of shooting at deserters in  the streets of German cities has waned in  popularity owing to the death of a young  girl in Posen, .who was hit by one of the  flying bullets. There is no close season  for civilians in Germany, but an attempt  will be made in the Reichstag to estab-.  lish one.  The strike of the London, Out.., street,  railway employes was settled last, week  bv compromise. The men secured several  concessions. The pay of employes in the  lirst class has been increased to $i.3S per  day, antl several admitted to this class  who were formerly in much lower paid  classes. The strikers had the active sympathy of the people of the whole city,  and, while the company's cars were tied  up, operated 'buses which were well  patronized.  The latest from Dawson City is to the  effect that the Yukon city had another  expensive fire on the night of October 14th  by which over' $300,000 worth of properts'  was destroyed. The fire was started by a  woman in" the Green Tree saloon who  threw a lighted lamp at another woman  with whom she had a quarrel. Four  blocks of buildings were burned. Last  month's lire is the third one which Belle  Mitchell has started in Dawson City in  the <:\me manner.  Satisfactory Showing: Made by the Company's  Manager on the Year's Operations..  At the second annual meeting of the  War Eagle Alining Company, which was.  held in Toronto on Tuesdas', some interesting information concerning the con<-  pans''s operations during the past j-cxr  was furnished in a report from'malinger  Hastings.  The report covers i he fi-eal ye��i I'l.ii.i e;  October 1st. andtshows that during that  period the development work performed  upon the properts' amounled to -1,100 feel,  consisting of 3,-ISO feet of tunneling at a  cost of $73,002, or $21.15 per foot: 451 feet  of raising at $13,420, or $20.78 per foot,  and IS5 feet of sinking. During the first  eigne months of the-year the conditions  were not favorable for shipping, but during the remaining months die on tout of  the mine was 28,523 tons, of an average  market value of $23.53 per ton. or an aggregate value of $001,510. The total  smelting charges, direct and indirect, on  this ore amounted to 8311,005. or $10.01-  per ton, leaving the net value of the  season's shipments at $353,455.  The total value of the ore now in sighf,  consisting of 100,000 tons, of an average  value of $17 per ton, is estimated at  $1,700,000. It is noteworthy that a j-enr  ago the value of the reserve amounted to  only $1,105,000. Since then there has been  shipped from the properts' ore to the total value of $070,735.28, and the reserve  has increased by 55 per cent., and is  rapidly increasing. Another notable fact  in connection with the property is that  during the past s'ear the management has ���  been able to treat ore carrying $4.12 less  values than in the previous s'ear. The  reduction is made possible bsr the increased tounage and bs' redueed'smelter  charges. The gross smelting.charges for  the s'ear have decreased from $14.29 in  1807 to $11.01 in 1S08. a saving of $4.2S a  ton, but this advantage has iu a measure  been swallowed up bs' the shrinkage hi  the value of the ore mined, which decreased in value from $27.(31 per ion in  1S07 to $23.52 per ion for 1898. The  market value" per ton of the  metals was; Gold, $1S.!)0: silver,  copper, $3.<10A.    Total. $23.52.  ���gross'  oi e  in  $1,151;  Newspaper Changes. ���  The Province : If all the reports going  around town at present are to be relied  upon there will be some interesting and  important changes in the newspaper world  here iu the course of the next few weeks.  It is said that Senator ALcLagan, from  False Creek, has ciused a deal with Air.  James Dunsmuir, bs' which Air. Dunsmuir  parts with so much ready .money and becomes the possessor of a second-hand  macaroni .press,-a', half-tone cut of the  senator in his private office, surrounded  bs' portraits of himself,'and the good will ,  of Alat Peard. Gossip goes further. It  says that editor O'Brien, the bashful boy  bachelor, is to be relieved of his duties,  and that Air.

The chartered banks of Canada are supposed to be managed by hieii whose business methods are conservative, and when  a branch of one of these banks is established iu a town that town is at once  placed in a class one grade above the  town that is: without such facilities for  doing business. If the number of banks  indicates the relative .commercial importance of towns, t her'; are to be three important trade centres in southern British  Columbia, namely. Greenwood, Nelson  and Rossland. Greenwood has three  branches of chartered banks, Nelson four  and liosslantl four. It is not unlikely  that Nelson and Kossland will each have  another within a short time. Rossland is  to have a branch of the Bank of British  Columbia and Nelson a branch of either  the Hank of Commerce or the Bank ol  British North America, and perhaps both.

I SOS  The reports which come fram Washington are not favorable to the reciprocity fads which have been nursed 'in Canada and iu some portions of the United  States. It has now been setui-officially  announced that before anything in the  way of reciprocity can be seriously entertained the doniiuiou must abolish the preferential tariff on British goods. If this  position is maintained the people of Canada may bid a: fond good-bye to any  dreams which they may have entertained  of reciprocity with the, United States. It  does not matter what arguments may be  advanced in favor of reciprocity upon  these terms, the present conditions are  against it. The Liberal, politicians have  been waving the old flag ever since their  preferential scheme for British goods was  floated, and it would be too much of a  flop for them them to go back upon it  even for a limited .scale of reciprocity  with the United'States. This will mean  that the United States import duties on  lead and lead ores will remain, and as the  people of British Columbia are rather  tired of the present position of jiflairs, the  federal government may redeem its implied promise and make .such changes in  the tariff as will tend to encourage the  smelting of I he on"-.'.of Kootenay in this  district.  Tin:   finding of   .Justice  Irving  in  the  l'w'i'.iimalt election case completely'upsets  the  contention   which   has  been  held by  many, that the marking of a ballot in any  way   by   which    it   could   he    identified  therebyspoiled.it.    In the Hsquimalt case  there were three such ballots-marked in  favor of candidate  iiiggins.   There was  no  doubt  but   that   the   voters   marking  them   intended   to   vote   for iiiggins, but'  the clumsy manner in   whicn   they made  their  crosses   made   it 'possible  to distinguish them from other ballots marked I'or  the  same  candidate.    Justice   Irving,   in  deciding to allow (lie ballots, said that he  adopted   the view   taken   by .justice Mc-  Lt'iinan in tin; West Elgin election case in  ()���  w.-  a  are intended for all classes of voters, including some who arc not accustomed to  the use of paper and pencil, and some who  are dull and unintelligent. Therefore, if  a ballot is so marked that no one looking  at it can have any doubt i'or which candidate the vote was intended, imd if there  has been a compliance with the provisions  of the Act, according to any fair and  reasonable construction of it, the vote  ought to be allowed.  Tin-: Timijune has received a copy of  the minutes of a public meeting which  was held in New Denver on the 10th instant for the purpose of condemning the  faction of the provincial government in  removing Robert Thompson from ths  office of the gold commissioner at that  place. The text of the resolution which  was adopted by the meeting, shows that  the object of those who engineered the  meeting was successful. The majority of  those present recorded themselves as  deeply deploring the dismissal and regarding it as a violation of the principles  on" which alone a sound civil service can  be based. This will probably end the incident. Robert Thompson will be as  much out of the government service as he  was before, those who desire to condemn  the government will continue to condemn  it, while its champions will sit up nights  in their endeavors to frame excuses for  this and every other questionable act  which the government may make during  the next year or so.  The Salt Lake Tribune, one of the  ablest champions of free silver, is becoming discouraged over the outlook for thec|  immediate future of silver. Looking over  the field, it says that thesilver cause has  not seemed as discouraging as it does today for a score of years. Mr. Cleveland,  Mr. Hill, Mr. Whitney and Mr. Carlisle  are all to the front agaiu in New York,  the Connecticut Democracy and Pennsylvania Democracy are indifferent; the use  of a little money���and there are millions  for the purpose���will secure the control of  the next Democratic national convention:  with one more poor crop abroad antl a  good crop at home, and both national conventions will, twenty months hence, declare for the gold standard. The light is  like, that of a small disciplined army,  safely intrenched, lighting with magazine  guns a host armed with bows and arrows.  The Toronto Telegram resents the inference of the Province that its favorable  comment on the . appointment of gold  commissioner Senkler was due to the f;tct  that the gold commissioner has friends in  every newspaper office. The Telegram  observes that a public journal must speak  of public men according to the best information obtainable as to their merits or  demerits. Mr. lOdmond Senkler left behind him ,in Toronto a reputation for  possessing the qualities which agold commissioner needs. A journal which stated  the truth as nearly as it could find out the  truth about i\ir. Senkler should not have  its praise attributed to personal good will  any more than its censure should have  been attributed to personal ill will, if the  truth had been less favorable lo Mr  Senkler.

I Ie needs a portfolio, and  the ��� Senilin administration requires an  Island member in one of its departments,  so it should not take long to arrange matters. It will not be surprising if D. W.  has a. long desk in the next house, and  meets the other, members as provincial  secretary and minister of education. In  the last house Iiiggins was accused of  flopping because "he thought the Turner  government was on the road to , the  morgue. His enemies should at least give  him credit i'or having a long head.  The Vancouver "World sees all kinds of  possible corruption in the Seiulin administration's announcement that for the future no lands or timber of the crown will  be alienated except under special circumstances. Of course, if the men who compose premier Semlin's cabinet are but  common thieves, there would be an opening for corrupt practices in administering  the affairs of the lands and works department under such an order, but assuming  that they are honest men, is there not a  chance under such a ruling of seeing that  the crown gets something like the value  of the land or timber which it alienates ?  The change may not be judicious, but it  may be only a temporary ruling.  The city of Rossland has opened negotiations with the provincial authorities  with a. view to securing their consent to  the draining of Rossland's sewage into  the Columbia river. As this is a privilege which every city in the interior expects to enjoy it is likely that the request  of the city council of Rossland will be  complied with. If it is. not interior politics . in the next contest will probably  turn upon the questions of sewers and  sewage. It is not' likely; however, that  an administration which counts out the  postage stamp allowance of its employes will adopt any of the expensive  sewage fads of the, provincial board of  health. -  The newspaper correspondents have it  that a measure of redistribution will be  introduced at the approaching session of  the house of commons and that a change  will be made in the representation of Yale-  UQ  &  Ui  IffPi  ?

For lhe in formation  of the politicians of the hhist it may be  stated here that the district of Kootenay  has every qualification for individual  representation, ant1 the people of the district will insist, upon the right to the  same, even should it result in taking a way  one of Victoria ciiy'^ member^.  The unit of repre.-cniation in the house  of o.ommon.s at present is something over  22,000 of population. On this basis the  representation of this province cannot be  increased until the population passes  1-10.000. The Vic.foiia Colonist takes the  position that West Kootenay should not  have individual ropiescniation until this  population is'reached, becau-e it; would  necessitate the taking away of one of the  capital's two representatives. Kooteuay  must continue to be unrepresented in order that Victoria may be over-represented.  Georoe H. Maxwell, Vancouver's representative in the house of commons,  has iuade the announcement that the  scheme for the establishment of a mint in  British Columbia is regarded with favor  by the federal ministers. This should be  welcome news to the people of the province.    Finance Minister Cotton has promised the people of Revelstoke that steps  will be taken at once.to protect the bank  of the Columbia from further erosions.  This shows that the men-who'compose  the present provincial executive have  much longer heads than had their predecessors.

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAH)  THREE   MONTHS'  NOTICE.  .lack Upton lay back in hi.s great easy  chair and laughed loud and long. Mac-  kinnon bit his cigar in two viciously and  looked fiercely at his merry companion.  "Confound you, Jack," lie cried, ''it's  all very well for you to laugh, but what  is fun to you is a very serious matter to  me. What I have told you is the solemn  .and diabolical truth. The new directors  met yesterday and one of the results of  their wise deliberations was their determination to have none but married men  in their employ. The ultimatum went  out today aud 1 have been allowed three  months in which to find a wife. If at the  end of that time I have not married that  three months is to be considered as my  notice to resign; which means that i lose  one of the best births of its kind in Loudon."  "Well, tMac," said Upton, passing his  cigar case as a -kind of peace offering,  "you've got" to marry sooner or later, so  you may as well have it over now and be  clone with it."  Mackinnon puffed his cigar furiously.,,  "Hut where in the devil am I going to  find a girl for whom I care it brass farthing?" he cried. "The only girls I have  the least regard, tor are engaged���mortgaged���hors-de-conibat."  "Take my advice, old chap," said Jack,  -'"don't worry about the matter for awhile  yet. Co out aud have a spin on your  bicycle, and when yon come back we will  have a sane talk on the subject of expedient matrimony."  "1 daresay I shall have its much consolation out of my bike as you can give, at  any rate: so 1 shall go for a run, and the  devil take all   uiacriuninia!  .-puriihttiuii.s."  JJut the devil would not cake llioso matrimonial specula!ions, ami when, luiif .an  hour later, he was scorching down tho  beautiful 13aUi road, he could think of  nothing elso. Three mouths! HyJovo!  it was a terrible predicament .to be in.  '" it's all through that baldheaded old  reprobate Biglow," he uttered, bending  over his handlebar and pedalling as if his  life depended upon it. "The other directors all give way to his eccentric whim.  It's just like him to expect a man to fall  in love, woo, win and marry in three  months..--, But where in the name of fate  am I to find a wife?"  The thought entirely absorbed him. His  senses were dead to everything else. The  tingle of a bell in front of him meant  nothing to him just then. But suddenly  a girlish voice in frightened tones roused  him.  "Oh, please be careful!"  He looked up in time to realize but not  to avert the crash that followed. The  girl had tried, to turn her machine, but  succeeded only iu giviug a broadside to  the charge and Mackinnon dashed straight  against her front wheel. Then in some  marvellous fashion he felt himself fly  over his handlebar and land all-fours on  the grassy bank of the roadside. Glad to  find that his neck was not broken, he.  leaped to his feet aud turned to the girl,  who was endeavoring to disengage herself  from beneath her broken bicycle.  "Are you hurt," he asked, helping her  to rise.  "No," she answered shortly, "but my  bicycle is ruined and I do not think I. owe  it to you that I live at all!"  Mackinnon looked into the sweet, angry  girlish face. .  "I am very sorry," he said. "I suppose  you will bring an action for damage."  She looked regretfully at her broken  machine.  "Yes," she said,   "I certainly  think I  should.     You   were   entirely   to   blame.  'You came  flying around  the  bend   at a  thoughtless rate of speed."  " It is quite true," he answered, " and if  you will Jet me know at what figure you  assess the damage I shall save you the  trouble of taking the matter into the  court. Meantime, let me take you to the  inn, which is quite close, and 1 shall call  for tt cab to take you to the station. I  shall send both bicycles on to London for  repairs, and if you will let me have your  address I shall return your bicycle in a  day or two."  " My address is ' Miss Biglow, The Three  Elms," St: John's Wood.'"  Mackinnon started.  "Biglow ?" lie exclaimed. "The Three  Elms?

When it was rumored that the emperor  of China had been -murdered and the dowager empress had assumed control of affairs, it will be remembered that a Chinaman of high degree fled from Pekin and  finally turned up iu Hong-Kong under the  protection of the British flag. This was  the emperor's favorite adviser, who is  supposed to have instigated the progressive measures which led to the restoration  of the power of the dowager empress.  Suspiciously little hits been heard of this  Chinese politician since his flight from  Pekiu, and it may yet transpire that he  carried with hiih to Hong Kong state  documents, or copies of them, the contents of which led to the warlike demonstrations which Great Britain has been  making ever ,since. If this Chinese ex-  high mogul had been interviewed, or if he(  liad expressed his opinion with regard to  Chinese politics, or in fact if he had done  almost anything but keep absolutely  silent: there would be less reason for the  suspicion that it was through him that  Great Britain obtained the secret information'which made.it impossible for her to  permit Russia and franco to proceed further with their conspiracy in Africa- and  China. No doubt the reactionary party  in China, who, at once  the  umperor had  disappeared from public-sight, endeavoied  to lay the blame of his supposed murder  on the man who is now the guest- of the  British at Hong Kong, intended to kill  both him and hi.s confrere,-who had been  banished to a distant province, in this  way Li Hung Chang and the dowager empress would have prevented any information leaking out, but the plan failed.  CAUSES   OP   ARMENIAN   MASSACRES.  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  "Then you must be Mr.   Mackinnon, of  whom father so often speaks."  Mackinnon bowed.  " I'm so glad,', said Miss Biglow. " My  father speaks very highly of you, and  .only this morning he was saying that he  would ask you up to dine. I hope, therefore, you will come all the way back with  me and stay i'or tea."  The youug man hesitated at the thought  of mooting the eccentric old man after  smashing hi.s daughter's bicycle; but as  he looked into that sweet face before him  he felt that he would risk a'good deal tor  an afternoon with Miss Biglow. Sri he  left instructions about the bicycles, ordered a cab, and the two drove off to the  station.  Mackinnon spent a very pleasant evening at "The Three Elms," and the old gentleman was good enough to say he would  leave the question of damages entirely in  his daughter's hands. Miss Biglow said  she would have to have time to think  about; the matter. Next evening the  young man felt he must call again to tell  jiow the bicycles were getting on. This  time lie had an opportunity of saying a  few words of business to his director.  "Mr.. Biglow," he said, "will you not  reconsider that order of yours? i have  not the least .prospect of marrying in  three months."  " You must do it, Mackinnon," answered  tho old man. "Look about 5rou. The  order must stand." *  On the third evening Mackinnon rode  around on his repaired bicycle to enquire,  if Miss Biglaw's machiue had been re-'"  turned all right. On this occasion he ventured to offer to escort Miss Biglow while  she tried the restored wheel. It worked  beautifully, and they went for quite a  long spin." They arranged another spin  I'or the following evening.  Jack Upton wondered what had got  into Mackinnon that lie should ttake such  pains with his toilet every evening and  ride away immediately after tea.  Two weeks passed, and Miss Biglow and  Mackinnon were spinning together down  the Bath road. They had reached the exact spot where the accident which resulted in their acquaintance with one  another had taken place.  " Let us dismount here for a little," said  Mackinnon, suiting the action to the  word.   Miss Biglow followed suit.  "Do you remember." said Mackinnon,  coining close to her, "what it was that  was bothering me so much that I could  not hear your bell ? "  " I think." answered Jliss Biglow. blushing ;; little. "' you said if was the question  ol' how you were to get married in three  moid lis."  " Yes.    1 was  utterly absorbed  by one  question, ' Where should .1   find  a  wife ? '  Miss Biglow���Gertrude���don't you think  that collision of ours  was an  answer?, I  love you, Gertrude,  and have loved you  from   the   first.      I   had   thought   three  months a  very  short time  in  which  to  learn to love any one.   But  I learned to  love you in one day and have loved you  for exactly two   weeks.   Will you marry  me, Gertrude? "  Gertrude was red as a peony.  " Two weeks���1" she began.  " I know  what you are going  to say,  dearest,"  interrupted   Mackinnon.       "I  have known you only two weeks, and all  that; but you must remember your father  has  allowed   me   only   three  months  in  which to  be  married.   Tell  me darling,  only that you care for me."  "*Yes, I do, but���"        ;  "But me no  buts,"  cried   Mackinnon,  and next moment the  two   bicycles had  fallen in the road, while Mackinnon seized  the little girl in a bear's hug.  ,   " Do  you   think   your father   will   be  angry ?" he asked at last.  "1 know he will not, Tom," she answered, panting for very happiness. "He  was chaffing me last night about you, and  said he could not wish me a better husband. He also said that if 1 married you  he would see that another hundred or  two was added to your salary."  "By Jove, darling," cried the happy  Mackinnon, "that accident was the best  turn of fortune's wheel I have ever  known !"  "But, Tom, I had forgotten. I shall be  done out of my damages.   It is a shame !"  AN   ENTIRELY   NEW   THEORY.  George II. llepwbrlhfa newspaperman  who has recently returned from Armenia  gives some interesting information in the  Detroit Free Press concerning the victims  of Turkish cruelty.  The Armenians, he says, being prosperous and enterprising, pay the taxes and  contribute largely to such prosperity as  Turkey enjoys. .In exterminating them  the Turk is really killing the goose that  lays the golden egg. \\rhy he resorts to  such measures is. one of those mysteries  which have their root in the depravity of  human nature. Why the Armenians do  not emigrate to some less hostile environment, why they elect to remain uuder a  government that hates them, oppresses  them by unjust laws, imprisons them, and'  in an hour of desperation murders them,  is a'riddle impossible to solve. '  As a reason why there must always be  friction between the two nations, the degeneracy of the Armenian, so far as regards ability to protect himself, is alleged.  Time was when he had military prowess  and when a wholesome fear restrained  his enemies from attacking him. He had  the prestige which belongs to a warrior  people. He not only knew how to fight",  but how to conquer. His history goes  back to a period just this side of the ark  and Arrart, which lifted its hoary head  within sight of his home. Even the Roman emperor, Pompey, thought it no  mean task to defeat the Armenians in a  pitched battle, and no slight honor to  have an Armenian queen in his triumphal  procession. There was heroism in those  days, but since that time the Armenian  has lost all his skill and till his courage.  He has been conqured and re-conqured,  bruised, broken, crushed between the upper and lower millstones of adverse fate,  ile may be proud of his ancestors but  they can scarcely be proud of him.  As regards tho Turk, 'Mr. Hep worth  says he is a magnificent horseman and a  good soldier, but nothing else. The minute he is out of hi.s saddle he is helpless.  Put him behind the earthworks and he  will stay there until the crack of doom.  He knows how to die on the field, but he  does not.know how to live anywhere else.  Sit by his side and talk of some practical  concern and he is little better than a child  of ten, for his notions of business are  dreamy, illogical and illusory.  Me is. a hospitable aud a generous  creature'. There is a- laissez-faire about  him, and a reposeful carelessness like one  who is drifting on tho current and has no  curiosity as to where hois going, wdiich  is delightful if you have nothing for him  to do, and to the last degree exasperating  if you are in any way dependent on him.  A   generous    impulse    characterizes   all  ch  Tho Anatolian Turk will go con  siderably out of his way to serve you, and  seldom take any recompense therefor.  There is another side to his character,  and if you study that other side you learn  why the Turk is ju^t where he is���so far  in the background that he is not visible.in  the picture of our modern civilization.  He has no administrative or executive  ability whatever. There are exceptions,  but the rule holds good. The departments of government in Turkey are, even  today, in spite of the massacres, in the  hands of men who are not Mohammedans.  The finances of the empire are administered by.Armenians and a few Greeks.  If public funds are to be invested the  transaction is not given iu charge of a  Turk, for he knows nothiug of finance.  Turkey would fall into endless embarrassment and confusion were it not for  those servitors who have Armenian blood  in their veins and who look after things  with Armenian shrewdness. The sultan-  has tried to change all this, and one of his  highest hopes is to render himself independent of this un-Mohammedan aid. A  large number of Armenians have been  dismissed within the last two years, but  many of the most important positions are  still occupied by Armenians. . The great  Ottoman bank is in the hands of foreign  capitalists: even the Turkish army is  drilled by .German officers. Turkey has  no power to meet her own needs. It is so  utterly helpless that if you were to withdraw the foreign element, that is, the un-  Mohammedan element, Turkey could not  hold together for a decade. The Turk  realizes this fact and is chagrined and in  despair.  It is feeling engendered by these circumstances, the culmination of years of  exasperation on part of those who have  power and recognize that others over  whom they have dominion, tire getting  the better of them in a way that gives  them no chance for reprisals���that has  gradually led up to a condition that made  the massacres possible.  Of course there were causes which led  up to the massacres and made them possible. If the Turks had been on friendly  terms with the Armenians, had not been  suspicious of them, had not envied their  prosperity, there would have been no  massacres. The Armenians tire the superiors of the Turks in business enterprise and thrift and hence are more prosperous. When you meet a caravan, the  chances are that the owner of the goods  and the outfit- is an Armenian and the  drivers are Turks. If you want any  skilled work done, no matter of what  kind, you will, find that tlie man to do it  is a Greek or an Armenian. I f yon put an  Armenian and a Turk side by side in a  villiage. it will hardly be twelve months  before the Turk will retire impoverished  because the Armenian has .absorbed his  business. The Turk has conquered the  Armenian by force of arms, but tho Armenian- litis the better of the Turk by  brains.    Tax Imposed on DritmiKevs.  Tho provincial legi-dat'iire of Prince Ld-  ward Island in )N!M j:ia.--e(l an act imposing "a direct tax on certain classes of  traders." It was generally understood  to be aimed at commercial travelers from  the   other    provinces!     Under   it   every  casual tivider not permanently residing in  the province  was compelled  to  obtain a  license and to  pay the government $15 a  year,    it    was   contended   that,   the    act.  ought to   be  disallowed, inrsmuch  as1 the  legislature  was  usurping  the control of  the  federal  parliament over  matters of  trade and  commerce.    It  was, in fact, a  system of'provineial   protection intended  to prevent that freedom of trade between  the provinces which  it was one of the objects of confederation  to establish:    But  the federal authorities did   not,  interfere  and  the  bill   became  law.    The  enforcement  of   the  law,  however,   must have  been difficult, as the legislature has found  it, necessary  to  enact "another providing  that creditors living outside the province  cannot collect their debts unless they can  show that they have taken out the license  and paid the tax.    This action on the part  of the  provincial  legislature is  roundly  condemned by the press of the other' eastern provinces", but if the province litis the  right to impose the  tax  it certainly has  the  right to take such  means as ib considers advisable  to ensure its collection.  If, by legislative  enactment,   it  is made  impassible to collect for goods sold unions  the  required   license  is  paid, those  who  have goods for sale will  not overlook the  license.

Work has been finished on the first section of the Goat river trail. This trail is  about 12 miles long and runs along the  east side of Goat river, serving the properties of tho Leadville Mining Company  and the claims on Iron mountain. When  this trail is completed through to the  White Grouse mountain district it will  open up the richest mineral section in  West. Kootenay. hYom one end of the  proposed' trail to the other promising  mineral discoveries have been made, but  the difficulty of access has, up till the present, rendered it practically impossible to  do anything in the way of development.  The first issue ��� of the Cascade City  Record reached Nelson this week. The  new paper is published by Wilcox &  O'Reilly, and has the appearance of being  a profitable venture. O'Reilly was formerly connected with the Economist in  this city.  At the meeting of the creditors of  Thomas W. Gray, which was held Thursday afternoon, the proposal of the assignors that the mill be operated by the  creditors, and that the settlement of  claims be deferred until they can be paid  out of the profits, was referred to a committee- composed of six lawyers and six  business men for the purpose of ascertaining whether the secured creditors will  consent to enter into such an arrangement. The lawyers on the committee are  W. A. Macdonald, Q. C, S. S. Taylor,  Q.C.. W. A. Galliher, .). Elliot, W." Mc-  - Ann and H. S. Lennie. and the businessmen, James Lawrence. J. A. Turner, W.  i[.

Tunstall, Jacob Dover and J. A. Kirkpatrick will compose the executive.    It is  probable that the office  of historian  will  he filled by Thomas  C. Collins.    All   persons wlio came to   Kootenay prior to or  during the year ISM) are eligible for membership.    The next meeting of the society  wil!   be  held  on   December   2nd,  in   the  offices of Dr. .LaBau, when  the secretary  will submit a draft  of rides and  by-laws  for  the consideration   of   the  'members.
