FATALITIES IX MONTANA,
Hilling Ihe year 18111, Iweiily-fniir
men were killed in Montana, Eighteen
others were also injured, bul mil fatally. Considering the Dumber of men
employed in mining In the state, lhe
percentage of fatalities is after nil only
moderately high. Though mining is
deemed the most dangerous uf nil uc*
cupaliuns, lliere are yet many Irailes
where the mortality, nolably In Ihe
manufacture uf paint, is us heavy,
MINERS' I'XIOX AT Tlt.UI..
A miners' union has been successfully formed in Trail Creek, lbe member*
ihip being already over two hundred,
ill is In lie hoped ibal ihe amicable
relationship which now oxislsat Trail
between the employers and employees
may long continue, and llie right*
of the winking miner to be sn well
recognised, Were Ibis ever Ihe case
labor union would nut be necessary.
I'.IHNI.MOXY AND POLICY.
Comparison, it has, we believe, been
sagely remarked, is odious, We can*
not,however, help noticing Ihe very
wide difference between tbe course
generally pursued by American legislative bullies, iu matters concerning tlie
public weal, and the attitude which is
un must occasions assumed liy our
own Government,
The National Policy, oul side nf the
larill' question, is remarkable, to use an
Irishism, for its lock of policy. Were
It otherwise, one would naturally imagine thut a government anxious In
convince the electorate that in the'
study of what Would best promote the
public welfare lay its claim to public
esteem and gratitude, (hut some attention should lie paid lo lhe most important of local wauls.
We have ere this pointed nut the
Inadequacy and the Incnnvieucesofthe
postal arrangements which are iu force
in Ibis districl.; and nut only in this,
but in other districts Hie annoying delay experienced in the transfer nf registered mail to the United Stales.
Wilh points in Kootenai and Slocan
this nuisance has been remedied. Arrangements have lieen made by whicli
the Spokane post-office bus become an
international exchange, transferring
all registered mail tu points iu llriiish
Columbia now reached by I he Spokane
Falls & Noil hern and Great Northern
companies, (hereby saving at least a
week's delay.
But this is where we feel aggrieved.
Owing tn the parsimony uf the Government in refusing to provide fur the
carriage uf the mall beyond Grand
Porks, we are unable tu make ulliciul
connection—letters addressed tu tlie
Slnlesbeingcunveyed by a direct route
Ibroiigli'tho courtesy merely uf private
individuals-- wilh lbe railroad
at Marcus, ami thus are debarred frum
the privilege enjoyed by lbe more
favored people of Kootenai.
The only deduction that can Indrawn from ibe very apparent neglecl
thai has been shown us by the
member  fur Yule-Caribuu is, Uial  ill
his opinion tho votes <>f ibis districl
are not as numerous ns to ulfci-t one

A REMARKABLE ESCAPE!,
The Ilnssland Miner reports lhe following i-On Monday Inst Tom Burke
was overcome by the elfeets of foul air
while ascending the nianway of the
War Eagle shaft ut Trail Creek, and
fell down 70 feet into lhe shaft. The
men who saw him fall went down lo
pick up his remains, hul. found him
still living though unconscious. The
doctor was sent fur, and he found nu
bones broken nnd nosyuiptons of see
ions Internal injury. In three days
Burke was walking iu Hie streets uf
Rossland apparently none lhe worse
for his fall except for a few scratches
and bruises. The shaft is an incline,
whicli helps to explain Ihis extraordinary escape,

THE WAR EAGLE,
The War Eagle Mining Campuny re-
mtly ordered a twenty-drill compressor plant for the Trail Creek properties,
The plant consists of n compound Corliss condensing engine, wilhjnii cylinders 18x20. Two seventy-five horse
power boilers will be required In opei-
ate It. As soon as the compressor arrives, the company will commence to
drive the longest and largest tunnel
ever driven iu Kootenai, It will lie
begun un Center Slar Creek, and wil'
traverse nearly lhe whole length of
the Iron Mask ground. Thirteen hiiu-
ilred feet will have to be driven before
the War Eagle chute will la* struck.
This will bo the main working tunnel
of lhe War Eagle mine. It will give a
depth of 460 feet, and from that down
the mine will have In be worked by

MINING   NOTES,
, Mr, Dargey of Butte, Montana, who
recently bunded (be Monarch, is visiting Greenwood (,'anip.
Mr. Coryell is very busy now-ii-ilays,
-The survey of the Knot) Hill was completed last week, and the liuiiH nf Hie
No. 7, While's Camp, are now being
.run,
Cul. Russell is ng-iin in the camps.
It is probable that his visit will result
in the salenf several properties.
Mr. George Ileardsley has made a
.strike whicli lie considers tn lie a" way
■up." The location is some distance
from any existing camp, but the locator believes his claim will form the
illiclus of ii greater than Greenwood.
Several parties of prospectors arrived from 'Northport and Trail lasl
■week, among which was nne led by a
Mr, Cobaugli, Mr. Cubaugli is a well-
ikniiwn assnyer nf Northport, who having heard nf the riches in uur hills, has
determined to try liis luck,
Another shift wasadiledtu the working force on tho Enterprise claim in
Copper Camp, by Mr. Boss who has
.charge of the work there for the Par-
/ett Smelting Co., last week,
The largest number of claims record-
„ed iu une day was on Wednesday last,
seventeen being the number.
A car nf nre was shipped last week
In Penticton bound for llie Tacoma
.smeller. The consignors being Mr.
T. El||nt nud Messrs. Guess k Whitei,f
Faicview.
A Bnii'pb'Ciirof ore will be  sent  lo

wurk to commence immediately.    Up*
/ill I Ilis \ ein some very good  ore   was
discovered .just prior to Mm closing uf
Ihu works lasl summer.
...
A It loll Strike.
Another rich strike has been made
/in lbe Smuggler, Fairview. Fnr sunn*
.lime past n tunnel had been run on
the vein from which nre wns being taken for shipment, About a week ago
however it was decided lo sink the
,sbai'l snmewhat deeper, and as a result
pf a few days work, the vein widened
jiut to 4 feet, llu* quartz changed snme"
,what ils character, and what was formerly a guod shipping nre assaying
$10(1 to lhe tun when sorted, is now sn
pinch richer lhat free gold is often vis-
able in the nick, nnd If it continues (is
goni] as ll is al present Mr, T. Elliot
the owner will be lucky indeed.

A Unique Stump.
There are few people iu the neigh-
ihorhond who have remarked the peculiar appearance of a stump which is to
he seen on the bench lands to tlie
south of tlie town. Recently this
puriosity was photographed by a gen
Hainan, wbuse ability as an amateur
photographer is considerable, and ils
strange characterislics were particularly well shown. The slump is tlie
blackened remains uf what was once
evidently a noble bull-pine, and the
fire has traced with tlie utmost fidelity
in a buld, Imt clear and unmistakable
maimer,• a statuesque Indian chief,
feaMier-cruwnl'd, eagle-featured, and
cconmiiiiiding-piescencc(i. The discovery pf so unique a mil ural curiosity,
should prove of Incalculable value to
the town iu attracting the tourists and
sightseers j and we propose, as tlie
hist to bring the matter to the public
notice, to demand a "consideration"
from the Townsite Cnnipany,
A Long lllile.
On Tuesday Mr. Castlenian left fur
Mie Siniilkameen, to meet liis sup and
daughter whu are driving a hand nf
rattle inlu Mint country from Chilli-
wnck. Miss Castleuian's pluck ia much
to be admired; there are indeed few
young ladies who would underlake to
ride over two hundred miles fiillnwing
puttie on a rough trail. The party a,r-
I'ived in Midway on Friday night,

lloml Work on the North Feffc,
Having completed tho work qn the
Boundary mountain road), H\. Mcjn-
pis has moved bis men over In lhe
North Fork of Hie Kettle River, where
lie Will Improve the present fund and
extend it. some .miles up the river, so
|in to give an inlet and outlet lo Ihe
ranchers and miners who aie located
-there.
I.itlul yet Viicnnt.
On the Norlb Fork nf Kellle River
ft number of good ranches might yet
be pre-empted. C. DeB, Green, CE.
in bis report of an exploratory survey
made up the river last year, estimated
Hint there weiu' 2ii,(XX) acres fit laud
available for settlement, The fact that
a wagon■i d is being built up the river, nsalsn lhat n large number of mineral loca linns are helng made in that
vicinity, shuuld attract settlers,
 1	
important Visitors,
Mr. G. B. McAuley arrived here nn
Thursday last from Spokane, nnil with
him a parly of gentlemen, members of
the Butte k Boston Company, the
probable purchasers uf the Caribuu
mine ut Camp McKinney. Tbe party
consisted uf Mc. Curnni and son, Capt
('. H. Palmer, Mr. 11. L, Hopkins »r„
and Mr. H. E. Ilnpkius jr. Ou Friday
they proceeded tn ('amp McKinney,
w here I hey will remain for n few days,
or at least lung enough tu make a
Ihurough examination uf the properly.

Tho Hii'uii of Careful 'ITllugo.
Fifteen ncres of as line wheal as
grew in any country is helng harvested
at Mr. Spruggett's ranch, Grand
i'rahie, Kettle River. This is the result of sowing Saskatchewan Fife in
the fall, which was seeded 00 pounds
to the acre. As an object lesson, we
should say the sesult shows what can
be dune by light seeding and thorough
cultivation,
Trail to Long Luke.
A good 11nil has been cutout during
the past weeks leading to tlie west side
uf Lung Lake, which branches off from
the main trail into Lung Lake Camp,
at It. Stuart's ranch. Those whn wish
lu pay a visit lo the new camp, will
have nn great, difficulty iu getting in
and out, thanks to the miners and
prospectors, and not to the govern
incut. _
The I.u.I Chance.
The Boundary Creek Mining Cnnipany commenced work on the Last
Chance lasl week. Twelve men are
employed on three shifts of eight
hours. Development, therefore, should

A ledure WAS Riven liy Capt. Adams
pan this topie. on Sunday evening in
'ilinerston Hall. After describing
a ' changes Ilull i.;ri.'taken place ill
ius century, lie said*—
"The most important eliunges   of
.anight have heen t^vse which relate
.1.1 the operations of nature, and ttyese
liifxe affected ey#ry department   of
life I fur qfieqrdfag to the view that
men lake uf itfye constitution <i|ii,l order
if ibe universe, so tyill iie their opia-
oos as tit thp jionduct of life.   There
are three gre^t principles lhat finally
have keen nettled in this  century,
i'hey are, #rst:
The iwilorvli.il- constitution  of  mater.  That is, the theory that matter is
aompnsed of indeslruelible atoms,   of
.■ybjclj alsiut seventy different kinds
lave lieeu proved.   Those atoms combine always in regular proportions to
(orra the various structures with which
ive ure familiar, and when these strur-
turfis arc dcstrf/j'eij  tlje atoms   are
merely dispersed and again form new
'oinhinations.  Matter Ib eternal.  Tlie
jeci/nd principle is:
Jlj)! (lflj)|ervation of energy. Tliat
is, that there is a constant amount of
force in tlie universe wliieli is never
4e(t.royed. It merely changes ilsj
fortnj, now appearing as motion, heat,
light, sound, electricity, etc This en-
.jl'gy, like matter, it eternal. The i
.(^Principle is;
The theory of evolution. That is, all
fhe manifestations of force and matter
occur in orderly successions nf cause
j^iud effect iu harmony fl'ith what we
/-nil natural law.
Tlie whole structure of the universe
is now accounted fur hy I lie winking of
furcc iu matter in this orderly operation of successive causes. The whirl-
jng star dust in lhe heavens consolidates jnto worlds, nod these worlds receive their Vjiricd forms and life
through continued operation of this
kernel energy upon Ihe eternal unit*
fee.
lju| |l)e acceptance of tlissn theories
js wider in Its effect than is at first
iiinigined. A little reflection will show
i,l)at they destroy all possibility of mir-
ijcle, revelation or any ii|t*3i-f|i|!iince
.with the natural order of cause and effect. They destroy nil the theories uf
special creation, divine providence, or-
jjained rulers, or privileged monopolists,"
After referring at some length to the
effect of these idi as as to religion and
government, lie said;
" As lo Labor: Observation ot nature's evolution leaches that the results of effort properly belong to Ihe
producer, No outside power can step
in and rightfully say to the worker,
; You shall not enjoy what, you have
Hindu liy your toil of body or mind.'
Wi'dern thought denies the right of
tljg master to command the unwilling
obedience of the slave, or tlie right of
the employer to take the largest share
of the products nf the worker, or lhe
right of the capitalist, to monopolize
fi)r. |||s own profit the natural resources
of the eartli or the inventions and discoveries of past generations. It asserts tlie right of every mini lu the proline! of his honest labor and the right
of access to all available natural  op*
f|ortuuities for securing the  means of
Ivinff.
Modern thought believes tliat lhe
(liiinedy for Ihe evils of society is freedom fill' IflSI) fil VI* POaoperatively,
having free access to natural resources.
Instead of each trying to be independent and grali all lie cnn, regardless of
|iis neighbor's needs, by the union of
forces and consideration of mutual
claims, working each fur all and all fur
each, men will learn the economy and
nroHt.arising from co-operation, there
Will lie no more poverty, no more war,
jind men will' brothers be the  world

Mining In China.
According to an account published
in n German newspaper mining operations in China present to Ihe Western
mind a curious jumble uf harassing
and tedious imperial regulations, philosophic persistence on tiie part of the
contnielnr nnd dull contentment on
lhe part of his men.
lluuey plentifully scattered amongst
tlie entourage of the court seems to be
tbe only way to secure lbe supreme
privilege of a concession, after whicli
the applicant, if successful, has to enter into a number uf engagements as
to the mode of working and lhe divii
vision uf the prolits. Miners in China
are completely under the influence nf a
belief in tlie supernatural, and uften
look foi gnid'tnc|i to the vacillations of
the compass needle and I l|c positions
of gravestones, in their eyes an awful
and sacred portent. Tlie Chinaman's
mude of working corresponds with tlie
deliberation of liis temperament. He
is content with processes tliat have
stood tlie test of years, and never goes
gadding for anything new. Under existing conditions there is little chance
of the Introduction oi English capital
into the country to any extent.
Jealousy of innovation and tbe "outsider" who would introduce it is the
prevailing passion uf emperor and
people alike.
