thill the output nf tint Le Roi will be
livlded between two planls, and thai

olher fields for ihe additional supply
of ure. This is very signlticiliit. and
presages the realization of our predic-
- ous formally expressed, viz j (hat lbe
ires of Boundary creik are likely at

THKiititiii llie agency of the Nelson
Tribune, we ni'd in ide acquainted with
I lie fact, that us n result of Mr. Car*
lyle's visit to lbe various mining sec-
lions of the province, an amendment
maybe expected tu lie made to llle
mineral net ut tbe next sitting of the
provincial legislature, It would seem
that Mr, Carlyle's observii tious have
tended to convince him thut the provisions of tbe mineral aet are being
disrcintrded by n lurge number of
prosper!ors, who are sinking cbilius in
Ibeilili'-ieiil milling districts and are
holding the same fnnn year to year
wltlimit complying with the requirements of ibe,icl as regards currying
nut assessment work. They are enabled In do this by simply allowing
their title In tiie ground to lapse, nud
then geltiiigsuiiieune else lo reloi-.-ile il,
who in t iii'ii conveysiititle by passing n
bill of s lie to the original locator, To rein illy this evil,und accelerate the development of Hie initiernl|resotii'ces of the
province, it is said Mr, Carlyle favors
the adoption of the American system,
which compels lhe locator lodo $11KJ
wnrlbnf work upon a claim, before
recording it. To Ihose giving little
attention to lhe silbjeat, this would
seetn to ben veiy feiHuble method of
curing the evil, but if liuie is taken In
whicli In reded upon lhe mutter, few
are Ihere whn would not lie convinced
Ihul such u remedy, would work considerable liui-ilsbip upon those who are
enilenviiring lo do nil they can for
themselves, und at Ihe same time comply with Ihe iei|iiii'i'inentsof Ihe Mineral Act. Sueh being tlie cuse we iind
oiusel.es opposed to the adoption ol
Mr, Carlyle's suggestion, as we consider il wuuld be an unwise nnd unfair
thing to do, viz., to punish the Innocent iniill il tide nf prospectors for the
sins committed by the guilty few.
Then uguin we arc opposed to Ihe tinkering wilh llie Mineral Act as ul presenl constituted, ou the ground Hint
wu do nol see Unit the adoption uf the
proposed amendment would remedy
lhe abuse, for there would still be a
menus left whereby ihe prospector
could circumvent the intention uf the
ncl   just   us he dues at lhe present
li , und he wuuld du it by following
lhe suine course nf action, A lime
lllllll would ho doubt be set in which
lin- work would huve lo be carried mil
befiiteii ci.iiut could be refolded, and
if tbe prospector could not.comply with
this, lie would us lie does now, relocate ib" ground under some other
licence, nud wuuld ('0111111111- lo relocate

Fought a Duel,
The Coon t nf Turin and Pli nee Henri
of Orleans fought, a duel on August 15
at tlie Bnis Murt-huux Vacresson, The
circumstance which led to the duel was
tlle writing of certain letters to the
press by Prince Henri iu which the
conduct of Italian officers who took
part in the Abyssinian war was severely crltlzed, To these expressions of
opinion the Count, of Turin took exception ami challenged the French
Prince. H. Leon I ielf acted us umpire,
The lighting was most determined ami
lasted 2(1 minutes. There were (ive
engagements, nf which two were ai
close quarters, Prince Henri received
two serious wounds iii the righ shoulder and the right side of the abdomen.
The count ofTiirin was wounded in llu-
right hand. Prince Henri wus taken
to the residence of Duede Chart res and
received medical attendance,
In the Hrst assault Prince Henri was
hit iii the right In-east, I hough tbe
weapon did not penetrate lbe thorax.
On Ihe strength of tiie report of the
doctors lbe seconds decided that tlie
combat must go on.
The second assault wus stopped hi-
cause the combatants came into close
quarters,
in Ihe Ihltrd assault the count of Turin was hit. in Ibe hack of the right
hund, hut the wound wus sllghl.
In lbe fourth assault, lhe umpire,
Major Leonteih", declared fhnl the
sword nf Prince Henri was bent ami
slopped lhe engagement long ennugli
to turnish the prince wilh a new
weapon.
In llie fifth assault the combatants
again got into close quarters, and were
iiiinieiliiilely stopped, Prince Henri, in
a counter blow, being hit In the right
lower region of theithdomen, Thedoi-
Iprflon holb sides examined the wound
and declared that Prince Henri wns
rendered by ll clearly inferior to his
iiiiliignnist,
Major Leiiiiieilf and Mauricbon proposed thnt Iheciiinhat he stopped, ami
this wus done hy common accord.
While bis wound was being dressed
Prince Henri, raising himself upon Ihe
ground, extended his bund to the count
of Turin saying, "Allow me, mon-
signeur, lo shake hands with you." The
count extended his hand.
The physicians presenl were Dr. Ton
pet mid Di. Harlmann nn behalf of
Prince Henri, and Dr. Curie on behalf
of lhe count of Tilt-in.

Hard on the Prospector.
Tt e Nelson Tribune says :—
Asa result,  nt professor Carlyle's
trump mn.mil the different, sections of
Wesl Kootenay, an amendment to lbe
mineral net may he expected during
the next session of lhe legislature.
Throughout the entire  district, but
more especially in nullying sections,
he hits observed a tendency nn the part,
uf claim holders lo cheat the provision
of the mineral  act drilling with  the
perfui'iuance of assessment work upon
claims,   Though  lhe  present net   Is
mosl. liberal, in lhat it admits  uf the
reciirding of locutions In-fore performing any development work whatever,
there is a disposition on   the purl of
cluim o.viiers to shirk llle  iinuiial assessiiienl fulling due   lllllilli the   year
following the location  of clainisj hy a
syslein of relocating.   The effect of
this is that large mens are staked off
and no work is performed beyond' the
driving of the stakes. In one district-
Trout Lake—Carlyle cnineactnss one
individual    whn wus hu'ding   sixty
claims.  These men are unable to do
the necessary assessment themselves,
snd by evading Ihe spirit nf Ihe act,
they stand in the way of those who are
willing and able to do the necessary
development.  This system naturally
tends to retard all new districts.  To
overcome the difficulty professor Carlyle is of tbe opinion that, the mineral
act should lie amended, so that before
a local inn call  he Hied ill the  record
office, the locator of a claim should he
required to perform one hundred dollars worth of work.   As the opinion of
Carlyle will nu doubt have considerable
weight  wiih the minister of mines,
some such amendment may he inadjt
to the mineral act next session,  unless
professor Carlyle can be induced to
change his miud initbis respect befoie
Ihe legislature meels again.

Slocan City,B.C.,Aug. 8.—Engineer
C. E. Perry, of the Canadhn Pacific
railway, who has just returned from a
trip along thu line of construction of
the Slocan Valley railway, stales that
he confidently expects to hear ibe locomotive whistle in this city by October 1. Over 500 men are now at work

laid two locomotives will he put in use,
uue each for lhe main line and tbe ('. k
K. branch. When this wnrk begins
the iron will be put down at the rate
of a mile per day.
The right of way for the entire $1
miles of the line bus been slashed and
the clearing practically finished. Aboul
20,000 lies have been cut and more I han

of attention. The editorial lone ofllie
Record is good, and the typographical
style everything that could be desired,
therefore it h to he hoped it will re
ceive a good patronage from Ihose,

MINING   NOTES.
George Rumlierger Is doing assessment work on the Vancouver claim,
anil II is said the property is looking
particulary well,
Tom Scivingtou has started a tunnel
to cross cut tlle ledge on his claim iu
Wellington camp, which is situated
just west of the Buttercup.
A. F. Sanderson is pegging away nt
his claim the Key west, which is situ
ated in Wellington camp. The Key
west corners on the Calumet and Its
position and surface showing makes it
a desirable and valuable property,
Byron While, who is associated
with the great Kootenay properly, the
Slocan Star, was in the Grand Forks
district a few days ago, nnd paid a
visit, to some properties up the North
Fork of Kettle River,owned by VV. O'Connors and others. Mr. While liefore
leaving Grand Forksexpressed himself
as astonishedat. the wonderful mineral
showing on some of the North Fork
properties.
Some splendid ore, which shows
plenty of visible gold, is being taken
out of the Ruby claim in Wellington
camp, just at present. The claim is
owned by Alliceand Burns, and Is
sit tialed near the pioperty owned by
W. T. Sinilh, in fact, the ledge is the
same which runs through the two
claims. Forsizelhe vein is some three
feet, wide, and is easily traceable
through I he H000 feet of ground. The
vein matter isa quartz, tarrying eon-
siderableiwii sulphide, but not sufficient
however lo prevent treatment ot the
ore by stamps if necessary.
As work progresses on tlle several
claims being i.'ierulrd upun ill Ihi
region of Clirisliua Lake, much Improvement is noticed iu tiie quality of
the ore laken out, and lhe prediction
is made us a consequence, that very
soon the district will receive a greal.
amnion, of at lent ion. The Rowland
eamp is only a few miles oil, and as I he
ore taken from some ofllie Chrislinn
Lake claims resembles very much the
ore milled at Rossland, there is every
reason lo lielievelliatilevelopment will
show one camp piuduces as rich ure as
lhe other, and why should it nut?
On Ihe west side of the Kettle river,
and abont 8 or 1(1 miles above llie
moulli of Canyon cieek, J. Peterson is
working on a tine free milling property
named the Silver Dollar. The ore,
which shows little mineral, may be
said tu be particulary free milling, and
is of good value, as it is possible to
pan oul, guld trout any sample of ruck
laken for thut purpose. This claim
lies in the vicinity of many others ofa
similar character, one of which, the 0.
K., is owned by an old lime prospector
in this district, Mr. C. Matheson, who
made the pioneer location in this particular locality. As with the Silver
Dollar, so il is with the 0. K„ the rock
is free milling and readily yeilds its
value to the panning process. Sitfti-
cient work has already been done on
this claim to show that the ledge is
cry exlensive, as it is quite wide and
can Iw traced nearly the whole length
(litheclaim, The general formation
of the surrounding country is grauite,
with diorilejuid syenite showing at
the base of the hills, and it is In Ihe
latter formations, and Where they come
intu contact with the grauite, the
ledges are found,
Development is being pushed on Ihe
Buttercup claim owned by J. Farrell,
in Wellington camp. At present a
shaft is being sunk through a big iron
capping, which from its appearance
may he 15 or 50 feel wide, but the ex-
tenl of which hns not as yet, lieen determined as very lillle bus Iieeu done
in lhe uuy of surface work, to show il
up. The shaft being souk at present
is down nboul 10 feel, anil all he bill loin
a streak of ore aboul i feet in wiilth
luis ciiinc in. ..Iiiiii ihowsa li'iiilencylo
widen oul lo Ihe whole width of the
shaft. Copper and gold in conjunction
with arsenical lion is found lit the
streak, bu! of wiiul value has not as
yel, been determined except In a crude
way. Upon two oilier ledges on the
same claim work luis been done which
has also taken the form of shaft sinking. Upon the westerly ledge a shaft
ahout 12 feel deep has been put down
all in solid ore, similar lo that refened
to above, whilst on the southern ledge
an em-line shaft, has been sunk
to the depth nf about 25 feet on a
vi in which averages two feet in width
and in which the ledge matter Is made
up of quartz, heavily impregnated with
masses of copper pyriles. This is a
beautiful looting otc, and assays made
of It taken from Ihe litiltoin of the
shaft showed guod values, ranging
frum $5 for I he clear quartz to $20 and
upwaids for ore showing mineral.
