This man was not familiar  with the values which tho ledge  'carried, but he laughed at the idea  a<* suggested that the lead had been  missed since his last visit.  Good progress is being made with  the sinking of the main shaft at the  Silver King  mine, and within  the  next thirty  days  it  is expected to  .have it completed to the   1000-foot  level.      This   will   give   the   Silver  King greater depth than auy other  miue, in  British   Columbia.   'Prom  the bottom of this shaft drifts will  b>   run   to   catch  the   ore  bodies  which have  beeu cut  in  the three  upper level.**, the striking of  which  the -miners.-confidently predict will  make tlie Silver King   the   greatest  mine in the   province.

They will leave for Camp -Mansfield, today, where .Mr. Mansfield  will make arrangements for resuming work on the Joker and Derby  claim.**, the property of the United  Gold Fields. To aTniBUXE reporter  Mr. Mansfield said he had nothing  to say for publication at present.  It is understood that Mr. Mansfield  has'".'beoii' successful, however, in  floatiug a company in Loudon to  take over and develop the group of  promising claims which ho holds in  the camp Avhich was named after  him.  The ratification of the shareholders is all that remains to complete the bond-on the Imperial Development �� Syndicate's Lardeau  properties to the London &: British  Columbia Goldfields. To secure this  an extraordinary general meeting  of the shareholders has been called  for Thursday, July 4th. The properties included in the bond are the  Eva and Imperial groups, situated  on Lexington mountain, near Poole  creek, in the Lardeau. The terms  of the bond give the company  securing the same the option of  paying $250,000 in cash for the  property or of paying $150,000 in  cash or 25 per cent of the stock of  the company formed to develop it.  In the two groups there are eleven  claims. A^first payment of $5000  awaits the ratification of the bond.  BUT FIVE THOUSAND BOERS  ESTIMATED TO BE UNDER ARMS  IN THE TRANSVAAL.

PRICES  OF  LEAD  Not as Low Now as in 1893.  The following data regarding the  average price of pig lead at London,  England, for'the years 1SS0 to 189S  ���inclusive, .wa-s taken from the  Mining Industry of the United  States and handed The Tribune  for publication, with the remark  thatjit-might"bVbf interest to the  -silver-lead miners of.the camps arid  'districts in. Kootenay. If' Thu  Tribune-is not mistaken, the price  quoted is for a ton of 2210 pounds.  " If this is the basis on which the  quotations are given, the selling  price of lead in London iu 1893 and  1S9I was much lower than the  selling price is today. The quotations of 1S93 and 1S9! at London  were $2.08. per hundred pound;-*, and  the selling price today is -��12 6s 3d,  or $2.65 per hundred pounds. The  lead miners of Kootenay say they  get $1 00 a hundred for their lead  now, then what did they get for it  in 1S93 and 189,4? No doubt prices  are low now and times are.hard,  but anyone who was through the  depression of 1893 and 1894 will  say that the present depression is  ii o G=to=be=coni pared=wi th���tlie^d e-  pressiou that existed then throughout Kootenaj*. The following are  the quotations referred to above :  Very encouraging reports have  been received from the Anchor  mineral claim on Leadville creek,  five miles from Kitchener. This  property is being developed by a,  syndicate of railway men, several  of whom reside in Nelson. It is reported that they have got in over  100 feet on the ledge aud some very  fine specimens of grey copper have  been encountered.  The action of the management of  tho May and Jennie, in reducing  the force of men employed ou development, caused much disappointment among tho holders of mineral  property in that vicinity who were  counting upon the work being done  on the May and Jennie to show up  their claims. Although the mere  fact of the partial shut-down is  taken by some to indicate. that the  May aud Jennie ledge has played  out there is nothing else to support  such a conclusion. Indeed, a well-  informed mining man, who was  through the property last week, and  who is fairly familiar with the  miue and its development, is  reported to have said that in his  opinion the property never looked  1S80    ��16  G  0  1SSI       14  1!)  !)

Ford,  London correspondent for' the New  York Tribune, says: The week's  record of the military operations in  tha Transvaal is regarded as satisfactory by the military without  regard for the results of Mrs.  Botha's diplomacy. Mr. Balfour's  estimate of the Boers still in the  field against the British army is  considered to be grossly exaggerated and he is censured for repeating it. It is not believed that more  than five thousand Boers are under  arms, although their number can be  doubled and possibly trebled if they  gain a victory over any -British  force. The number of Boer prisoners under guard exceeds twenty  thousand and they are anxious to  have the war ended. A considerable force of surrendered Boers is  now under arms for the protection  of their farms aud herd,, and they  are also anxious to have terras of  peace arranged. The Dutch distracts in Cupe Colony, where general  French is now in'charge, are weary  of the depredations of Boer raiders,  whom they have to feed and,clothe,  and a decisive victory over the  guerrilla band is expected in the  near future. Important news from  general French is looked for in the  next ten days by which the pacification of the country south of the  Orange river will be effected.  The resources of resistance of  Dewet, Botha, Stein, Delary and  Schalburger is well nigh exhausted.  War-news remains-meager.and the  reports- of peace- negotiations- are  illusionary. They are* counting  much. upon the moral effect of  greatly needed severity at Pretoria  by which burghers on parole escaping under arms and being captured  have been condemned to death.  They are convinced that the end of  the campaign is in sight so soon as  the Boers find they cannot run  with horses and hunt with hounds.  Several versions aro given of  Mrs. Botha's interview with Mr.  Kruger, but there is no authority  for any statement. Mr. Chamberlain remains inscrutable and lord  Milner reticent.  The Cup Challenger.  Shamrock II has:- reached the  Clyde from Southampton,. and will  have new rigging and spars before  ^rMsing'thlT^trariticT^^There^wilf  be no more trials and the yacht  will enter the races off Sandy Hook  virtually an experiment. Yachtsmen shrug their shoulders when  the suggestion is made that there  should be an international race  from Sandy Hook to,the Needles.  They know that Shamrock II could  hardly cross jthe oceanbinder a jury  rig, and do; not believe that the  Constitution could do much better.  There is no'public interest iri contests between racing machines  which are not sea\yorthy yachts.  What real sportsmen want to see  is the abandonment "of the cup  races and a return to first principles in the construction of yachts  designed for any weather and any  seas.  Don't Like the Report. .  j  The report of the Transvaal concessions commission has caused  commotion and irritability both in  Germany and in Holland. Shareholders are meeting tod^y in Berlin  to bring pressure to bea!f*.upon the  German foreign office and the Dutch  investors will hold a consultation  in Amsterdam next week. The  action of the Dutch government  will-be of little account unless it be  connected with a strenuous efforV  on the part of the Berlin foreign  office to obtain fair terms for the  foreign shareholders in the Transvaal railways. Arguments for these  interests are already found in the  German press. It is urged that the  Boers were recognized as belligerents aud that private property  belonging to foreign investors must  be paid for by the British government with full compensation to  shareholders. The German foreign  office will incur the odium of the  moneyed class if it declines to take  up the cudgel in defense of its hold  ings in the Transvaal. The British  foreign office, wliich has never revealed its motives for neglecting to  give formal uotice to the powers of  the annexation of ; the two'  Dutch republics; is not ignorant  of the fact that the Transvaal  government during the' last two, or  /three years disposed, of nearly all  its own railway _hare.!*i in Gerjmany  and Holland for tli^ purpose of  raising money for tlie' war .and enlisting,, foreign teympathyKi-i. It is'  urged by the financialjdurnalshere  to pay no attention to the' appeals  of the attorney si. and press . agents  of these foreign.^purchasers, but to  carry out the re'eommendations. of  the commission^ without flinching  from diplomatic opposition. An  analogy is drawn by some journals  from the action of the United-  States government in refusing to  recognize the Cuban debt or to contribute anything towards the indemnity of foreign bondholders.  It is contended that the Cuban debt  was securpd by a',mortgage on the  customs of the is,land aud guaranteed by the colonial government,  and that the bulk of it was incurred  before there was. any prospect of  American intervention. The conclusion is drawn jihat if the United  States government did irot consider  itself undeivobligation to recognize  this debt after tlie war the British  government has even less cause for  compensating the'" Dutch and Ger-"  man capitalists1 holding shares in  the Transvaal railways, especially  those who purchased' bonds after  the opening of the,,war and thereby  supplied vassal states with financial  resources for keeping up a protracted fight. The- claims of the  foreign investors 'in the .Transvaal  railway would yhave'been greatly  strengthened if'the American principle of the exemption of private  property from the- ravages of war  had been taken up' by England at  the peace congress's' at The Hague  instead of being relegated to in-'  nocuous desuetude.

Toronto, June 1(5.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The;strike of the C.  P. R. trackmen will begin tomorrow morning at 0 o'clock, and both  sides express themselves as confident of success. Mr. Wilson, presi-  dent of -the-Brotherhood of Railway Trackme_i,-: says' that of the  5000 men employed in that department fully'0.5'per cent are members  of the association; that these are  well organized and that they are  sure to win; ' On the other hand,  general' manager of the railway,  Mr. MacNicpll,. says that he does  not believe such a large percentage  belong to the order, and-' that in  any case the company is assured of  plenty of workmen to operate the  line as usual.  CROW'S   NEST SOUTHERN  To Be Built at Once.  St. Paul, June 15.���[Special to  The Tribuue.]���The Great Northern officials say that there is no  truth in the report that the railway from the main line of the  Great Northern to the  coal  mines  at Fernie is not to be built. The  road is to be built, and work on  the same will be commenced within  thirty days and pushed-to completion.  Nkw York, June 16.���The divers  at work on the. wrecked ferry boat  Northfield kept at their task until  6 o'clock this morning without finding a human body in the boat's  cabins. It is not yet known definitely that there was loss of life by  the collision. The official entry on  the blotter of the harbor police  says that no one was lost, but according to the statements of the  boat captains who surrounded the  sinking Northfleld it ��� is thought  that a number of persons must  have perished. Until early this  morning there were many inquiries  at the station of the harbor police  for relatives and friends who are  supposed to have been on , tlie  Northfleld and who had not returned to their homes at a late  hour last night.  . Captain Johnson of the North-  fieid was arrested a few hours after  the'collision, but he refused to make  a.uy statement about the collision.  He was locked up on ��� a charge of  criminal negligence and-held without bail. Captain Frank Griffin of  the Mauch Chunk went to his home  in Jersey City last night. No effort  was made to arrest '"him, as the  oilicials of.the Jersey Central railroad promised that he would be  produced in court today. The  divers stopped work - at 6 o'clock  and rested until 9.' ,At that time  they started to go-through all the  cabins, the engine and fire rooms  and other "compartments of the  ���feri'-yboat \ inVorder .-.to*, makev a  -thorough1 search; -?Xb is Icnowri.that"'  all" of the crew "got "ashore in safety*.;  The body of a boy ten years old  was found floating in the East  river this morning. The coroner's  office attributed the death to the  collision and the police recorded it  as the first known death.*  Captain Daniel Gully of the tugboat Mutual said this morning that  many persons must have been  drowned. "I saw the two boats  when they crashed," he said, "and  I am positive that 200 persons were  drowned. I myself saw more than  thirty jump overboard as the  Northfleld Avas drifting from the  Battery to pier ten/ That was on  the starboard side, and I cannot  tell how many went over on the  port side. I saw more than fifteen  in the water when I ran up to the  Northfleld-and--many=of=them=:Went=  down. If, as the ferry officials say,  there were between S00 and 1000  passengers on that ferryboat, not  more than 500 or 000 got ashore in  safety." '  Practical Workings of a Fool Fad.  A pretty good story is told of  how the Thursday Closing 'Move-,  ment Fad works. Last Thursday  afternoon a dealer in clothing was'  approached by a' friend 'and his  companion. The friend's company-  ion' wanted an outfit of clothing.  The clothier looked along the'street  to see if any of ,liis rivals were in  sight, and, seeing one of them oh  the outlook, refused to open his  doors to make a saie. The friend  said to his companion, "Go' and try  that fellow that is on the outlook."  He did' so, was admitted to his  store, and within half an hour afterwards appeared on the street  with a bundle as big as a bale of  hay under his arm. The chances  are, both these dealers in-, clothing  will be open all day next Thursday.  Will Be Two Drilling Contests.  Oscar White, superintendent of  the Slocan Star mine at Sandon,  was in town on Saturday, and had  an interview with members of the  Dominion Day celebration executive  regarding the championship cup  for drilling which a team from his  mine won last year. The cup was  given by the London & British  Columbia Gold Fields, Limited, to  be competed for by teams actually  employed at mines, and when won  twice by a team from the same  mine was to be the property of the  mine. ' Mr. White brought the cup  with him and delivered it to secretary Cameron of tho celebration  committee. He said that his mine  had a team iu training to enter the  lists this year, and wanted to know  what action would be taken. He  was informed that the committee  would, in the official program, announce that a prize of $125 would  be given in addition to the cup,  and that teams competing must be  made up of miners actually employed in one mine, according to  the terms announced last year.  This will make two; drilling contests: one for the championship  cup and $125; the other open only  to teams that have not won a prize,  for wliich $75 will be the fire prize  and $25 the second.    This, no doubt,  will be satisfactory to all the boys.    t.'  Inspecting Elevator Appliances.  Buffalo, June 16.���Six members  of the harbor commission of Montreal today visited portions of the  docks to inspect the harbor and  grain elevators there. They returned to Buffalo this evening and  tomorrow will make a careful examination of the elevators and appliances in this port. The six members of the commission are: David  , S, Seath, John Kennedy, Joseph  Coutant, John Torrance, Alplionse  Rairne and Hon. Robert MacKay.  The commissioners have but little  to say, but take very careful note  of everything presented, and when  they go back to Montreal their  opinion of the methods in vogue  here will be reflected iu their selection of machinery. Considerable importance is attached to the  possible use of the appliance for  loading deep sea boats, because it  may be au opening wedge that  will revise conditions existing along  the coast.  KILLED WHILE SHE SLEPT  THE BRUTAL DEED OF A JEALOUS  HUSBAND.  Murders His 'Wife and Father-in-Law  With an Iron Bar, Then Attempts   Suicide.  LIBERAL REUNION SPEECHES  Deplored by Unionist Journals.  London, June 16.���The speeches  of - sir      Henry      Campbell-Ban-  nermau, sir "William Vernon   Har-  . court i.and    John   Morley   at-  the  Liberal    reunion    designed    as    a  demonstration   of . radical  concentration are deplored by the Unionist  ���journals as'incitemen.ts-:to.the Boers^  "'to1''continue "in .armed, resistance.  This indictment is too strong. These  .Liberal leaders are good partisans,  but ar,e not traitors to their  couu-  -try.\   They are striving  to  rally a  demoralized.. party    and    consider  that the only practical  method  is  that of developing the resources of  the more democratic and progressive  faction.     The  Liberal  imperialists  were conspicuous by their absence,  and while the  speakers  contented  themselves    with    depicting    the  miserable  plight   of   the  Unionist  party as in a state of senile decay,  notwithstanding     a     comfortable  majority and absolute  security in  the house of common?,  misconceptions of their object will probably  be general among the Boers in Holland and on  the  veldt.     The  real  =significance=of-this=i=adicaWdemon-  stration    lies   in   the    cumulative  proof that the Liberal divisions are  hopeless, and that the party cannot  be.united while the war  in  South  Africa  goes  on.      Lord  Rosebery,  Mr. Asquith, sir Henry Fowler and  sir Edward Grey cannot be included  ih any government which the radicals can support.  England is weary  of an inglorious and costly war, but  is" neither prepared to abandon the  business  of   the empire nor hand  over the direction of public affairs  to a faction rent party which cannot   in   an  emergency   supply  an  alternative government.  Princeton Coal Fields.  To-the Editor of Tlie Tribune: As one  of tho gentlemen interested in. the Princeton coal locations, having read the  opinion of iM. S. Davys, published in  your issue of Saturday last, expresses  himself as follows: "Those gentlemen  who have paid for their interests in coal  lands around Princeton, such as A.  Sharp, who is .among:. the recognized  coal authorities of British Columbia, R.  iVIarpolc, T. G. Holt of Vancouver. P.  Burns, W. J. AVilson, Bruce Wliite.W.  M. Grifliths, coal mining expert, captain  J. "W. .Troup, and some forty other gentlemen of this district, should at least  thank Mr. Davys for his opinion; for  even domestic coal is better than no  coal at all; in fact brings'a higher price  in - Nelson than the Crow's Nest coal.  This could also be used to great advantage in the Aspen Grove district, where  some other people may get "bitten;"  not only through their investments, but  by frost, which occurs every month in  the year. From thoso who know, however, and these are men who have been  paid for their information, we are told  that this coal is semi-bituminous, and  notwithstanding Mr. Davy's opinion,  thoy fully believe that with development this coal will prove as good as  any in Britifh Columbia. The Blairmore  coal fields were turned down by wise  mer. a few years ago, but today that  product will compete with any coal in  British Columbia.      J. B. POLLARD.  Nelson, June 15th.  IthacjV, N. Y., June 16.���James  Churchill, a farm hand, who worked,  near   Ithaca,   early this   morning  murdered his wife, Minnie Church- .'  ill, at her father's home in Newfield,  a village  nine miles distant from  this place.     He mutilated her head -  with a heavy bar of iron while she '  slept peacefully beside her daughter, 7 years  old.      Her father,  D.  Mintune, who was over 80 years of  age, also fell a victim to his son-in- ���  law's wrath.     Mrs. Churchill died "  two   hours after the assault was ^  committed.     She was 30 years old.'..  The old, mau still  lives, but will ���'���  survive   but    a   few   hours   it   is' .  thought, as his skull has been fractured.

He    first   walked    into, ;  Ithaca, where he secured the poison,  then walked out to  Newfield,  first  arming himself with  the iron bar. -  He gained admittance to the house '  ot   his   father-in-law through  the  cellar and attacked his wife before   ,  she could cry for help. The screams i,.  of the little girl, who ran from the '  bedroom, awakened .Mintune, who  -attemptedto "light^a-Iamp in the  kitchen. ��� While he was engaged 'in  this  Churchill  struck  him several  blows.     The little   girl ran to a  neighbor's for help, and when the  neighbors entered the  house  later  the  two   victims   were  lying   unconscious.  . Churchill was in a semiconscious condition.     Sheriff Heaman and   district  attorney  Blood  drove to Newfield a few hours later.  The   murderer   was   brought  into  Ithaca and will fully recover.     He  admitted   that   the   act was  premeditated.    He is 38 years old.  Want Exclusion Act Repealed. '  Nkw Youk, June 10.���The .Triune says the Chinese in the United  States are preparing for an organized fight to obtain the absolute  repeal of the Geary Exclusion Act  at the coming-session_of_congreasW  The movement was started in this *  city early iu the week, and it is expected to spread rapidly to Philadelphia, Chicago, Portland, Seattle,  San Francisco and other cities having large Chinese populations. A  powerful organization has been  ell'ected among the Chinese mev-.  chants of this city. Within thef"''  next two weeks every one of the*"  15,000 Chinese here will be asked to  sign a carefully prepared memorial  to the United States government  asking that the exclusion act be  repealed. The memorial will protest in the strongest possible terms  against having the act extended  for twenty years from the date of  its expiration in 1902. It will be  forwarded to the government along  with similar memorials prepared in  other cities, through Wu Ting  Fang, the Chinese minister at  Washington. Their strongest hope  of eventual success lies in Wu Ting  Fang. They say that it was on his  advice that they organized for the  struggle.    Decided on Original Flan.  - After considerable deliberation the  trades procession committee has decided  to go ahead with its original plan of  awarding diplomas as well as other  prizes for the most deserviug of the  floats in the Dominion Day precession.  This proposal was first advanced ' by  Percy Chapman, chairman, hut was  afterwards thrown out by. the committee. The finding of the committee, however, was not well received by. those  who intended to have .floats in the procession. The geneial opinion was that  it was awards more than money prize.  that the merchants desired, and so  i.lic original proposition was re-introduced. This does not mean that the  money prizes already decided upon will  be withdrawn, but it will enable the  judges to make avwds of merit iu  many cases which would be impossible  if none but cash or value prizes were  distributed.  j* }u  I'M  *��� \ "* m  .'ill  i--/*X:|  t&i  }._  .m  I_____*?*-"-':\ THE  TMBTOE.

V. and  E. literati! ro circulated at Victoria  during  tho last session of the legislature, is  now'" being   freely   distributed   in  Nelson.     Its title page bears  the  following words :   " 0. P. R. vs. The  "People of British Columbia.  . The  "Coast-Kootenay    Railway.      The  " History of the Struggle to Obtain  " a Competitive Railway From  the  " C-iast  to tho  Interior,  and How  "llio Enterprise has been  Blocked  " by   the Dunsmuir  Government."  No action taken  by the  Dunsmuir  -- government has in  any  way inter-  ,   fered with the building of an independent competitive railway  from  the Coast to Kootenay.    Tho words  "independent" and  "competitive"  are used in their true sense.     Anyone with sufficient capital to build  an   independent    and   competitive  rn i 1 .vay frorti the  coast to  Koote-  ,-,nay  can  start tho  w.ork  at  once.  ���miThere are at least two charters nn-  ��������� dor which the work could be undertaken.      One   is   the V. V. and   E.  charter.     Ib is controlledjby James  J. TtiII and Mackenzie ��fc Mann, who  aic generally believed  to bo entirely independent of the C. P. R.   The  Dunsmuir government has not done  '���-anything that would prevent these  independent and competitive  capitalists from building  the  Coast-to-  Kootenay railway.     They have  a  chnrter.      The    country    through  whi_h the   road would  run  is not  fenced in.      What moro is  wanted  from the province  or  the  government?    Have they not got tho necessary money with  which to build  tlio road? or, hot having ib, do they  want  the  people of  the province,  through the Dunsmuir government,  to.furnish it?     If ib is this lack of  money that  prevents  the road being built, the  question  arises, why  should the people of the province,  -through the Dunsmuir government,  furnish James J. Hill and  Mackenzie & Mann  with  money  to build  railways on  terms different from  those offered to other men who are  s.vid to be anxious  to build  railways in the province?   The people  of the province, through the Dunsmuir       government,       offer      to  furnish   railway  builders   $1000  a  mile of their capital requirements.  Tliis  money   to    be   a    perpetual  loan, to bear interest ab the rate of  2 per cent for the first  five years,  and 3 per cent afterwards,  the  interest to be a first charge upon the  gross   earnings   of    the    company  ncccpting the loan next to the payment of the Avorking expenses. The  people  Pianos to Hf.nt.  NTCI.SON, R. C.  road so built with the aid  of their  money,  and only have a small rate  of interest on their money paid them  annually.    The terms are evidently  not satisfactory to independent and  competitive   railway  builders  like  James  J.   Hill   and   Mackenzie   &  Mann, and the  country  is  flooded  with literature wherein au attempt  is made to  prove   that  these  independent gentlemen are struggling  to give the people of the southern  portion    of   the   province   an   independent and competive railway,  and    that     their    struggles    are  rendered futile because of the opposition of the  Dunsmuir  government,    The  pamphlet  in  question  should bear oh  its title  page  the  following words :    " The History of  "an   Attempt   to   Hold ; Up   the  " Province of  British Columbia in  " the Interest of a Gang'of Charter-  " mongers in'the Pay bf James J.  "-Hill and Mackenzie.& Mann,  and  "How    the Attempt   Was   Frus-  " trated by the Dunsmuir Govern-  " ment."  ===iBoTH^aldermiMi=Irving-i--nd=alder-=  man Gillett pledged themselves in  open    meetings    to    give    mayor  Fletcher's    platform   their  hearty  support.    One of ,the planks in that  platform is to the effect that no act  would be done that would, abridge  or curtail the rights or privileges of  one class of citizens merely becauso  another class held different views.  Both these aldermen have changed  their minds in respect to this question   of   toleration.     Before  their  election    as   aldermen   they   wore  tolerant of other people's rights and  privileges.    Now they are of tho intolerant class, who would make all  people do as they do.     This is  repugnant to nine out of   ten fair-  minded men, and alderman Irving  and alderman Gillett are stultifying  themselves   in   pursuing   a policy  that is both narrow and unreasonable.    Even if they have no regard  for the views of the men who placed  them   in   their   present   positions,  they owe it to themselves to be, at  least, a   little  more   consistent  in  their official actions.  through the press that there we're  millions in sight in the Le Roi���  millions that ranged all the way  from ten to one hundred ; yet notwithstanding that these millions  are in sight, no mine management  in British Columbia seems to have  more trouble in adjusting a wago  scale that is satisfactory to t lie  men who are required t��> jr--fc tlu-st-  millions to the surface ��*f tlm ground  and afterwards into the jackets of  a furnace. The Stiver King mine  may not have millions in sight, but  its managers manage to operato  the mine without trouble with their  men and without gaining undue  notoriety through tho press.  Toronto printers  take  over ten  thousand   dollars'   worth    of   job  work out of Nelson every year, and  possibly they take as  much more  out of Rossland,  and  take  smaller  sums out of every city and town in  southeastern     British     Columbia.  This work is,pf a kind  that can be  done in Nelson and Rossland; but,  as far as The Trirune is aware,  only one house in Nelson (the Lawrence   Hardware    Company)    has  made any eifort to secure the work  at home.     The job printing and  bindery departments of The Tribune can do the work, and the .work  now sent to Toronto if done in Nelson would mean the disbursement  of several thousand dollars a  year  in   wages   to  printers   and   bookbinders at home.    Within ten days  The Tribune will be prepared- to  furnish   every   printing    office   in  southeastern   Kootenay   with   bill  heads and other blanks ruled, perforated,   and   punched,  ready   for  printing,   so   that   local    printing  offices can  Iiil  all orders  for  such  work.     KEEP YOUR WORK AT  HOME.   Tike Rossland Miner plaintively  "pleads that every newspaper in the  province with a knowledge of the  existing grievances should persist  in the task of pouring hot shob into  the Dunsmuir government for  allowing the mining laws to remain  as they are. As the" Miner is  classed as a pea-shooter, ibs hot shot  is nob heard outside of its own  office.   It is rumored that the Kaslo &  Slocan railway has been 'absorbed  by the Canadian Pacific. Ib is to  be hoped that tbe rumor will turn,  out to be true, for if ib turns out to  be true this' section of the country  will get rid of two or three windbags. ���'        ���"'.':     '  It is safe to say there is less vulgarity and profanity in the original  utterances of tho Lardeau Eagle  and New Denver Ledge and Sandon  Paystreak than in the hogwash  utterances of such stupid journals  as the Victoria Times.
