ounces of sliver for one ounce nf gold,
issuing convenient currency therefor
and retaining in its vaults an aclual
dollar in silver nr gold fur saph dollar

Mr. Gold Bug's reply? "Impossible,
sir; silver is so bulky that the treasury
vaults would soon overflow,"
PROPORTIONS OFTHB METALS.
Now what arc the facts about the
size, value, mid relative proportions of
all tho gnld and silver in tlie world
available for money? Turning to
"Coin," the invincible financial primer
which anyone able lo rend call readily
understand, we (inil, on authority of
the Director of the United States Mint,
hat all of the gold (coin and hulllion)
in the world in IfjiX), available for
money, was less than $:i,DOO,IJJO,000, or
in weight, 188,(l51,:Bj ounces. Also
that all of the silver (coin and bullion)
so available was praelically $,1,820,01)0,
01)0 or 2,0.11,558,2:1(1 ounces,
There nre therefore ip existence
practically (less than) sixteen ounces
of silver for each ojincc of gold, and,
nt this ratio, less than 580,000,000 difference between thu total values of the
two ifletals. Therefore, .Mr. (iold Dug,
both niotals helqg equally Imperishable
and otherwise fitted for use ns (he basis nf more convenient money than
either, Is it right and healthy Unit gold
should be doubled in purchasing power
while silver, Ihe world wide money
metal of the middle und poorer classes,
is robbed of its money value und de.
based.
"BULK" BUUABOQ DISPOSED (IF,
But about the alleged overhulkiness
of silver? Borrowing again from
"Coin," 1 find that ull of the gold In
the world available for money, cast in
a single block would scarcely equal a
cube nf twenty-two feet, while all of
the silver so available would make a
solid cube of hut sixty-six feet, neither
one very large, but suggestive of some
pertinent questions—for instance:
Which, a national currency based
upon the smaller cube (gold) or one
sustained by both cubes (gold und silver) would he the most stable, elastic,
and least readily cornered and speculated with?
Also, which, Ihe mining, milling,
transporting, smelting, refining, and
general treatment of one alone or of
both gold nnd silver will create the
greatest demand and best prices for
American labor, fond supplies, manufactured, merchandise, and trapsporta-
tion?
IMPORTANCE OF MINING INDUSTRY.
Mr. (iold Hug, however, always
ready to beg the question, says: "Tlie
milling industry doesn't amount to
anything outside the mining States
and no one will lie benefited hy the restoration nf silver to its liine-lionnred
place except a few iiiiiie-owners." But
he's wrong, and by Ihe way, Ihis is only aiuitlier uf Ilis plausible anil most
widely circulated, thoroughly unsound
slock nrgiuiienls, aud 1 again gl'tdly

The vast majority of American mines

behest of political demagogues, in Ills
employ of political schemers, continus
to throttle an industry thus productive
of virgin wealth, wrested from the
earth's interior, need I liny wonder liint.
the products of American farms, factories, workshops, brains, muscle, and
energy are innrketless?

the summer of 181)2, in the Interests of
the Pyritic Smelting Co., of San Fran,

Mask, and Virginia for $17,000. Mr.
Pugh at first decided tn aet on tho
captain's advice, hut to be sure of his
ground, the advice of another expert
was sought. This inuti—McMillan—
aftuc examining the property, pronounced the entire district worthless,
and Mr. Pugh withdrew all his interests from the country. Mr. Burbrldge's
opinions were scoffed at nnd ridiculed
by nearly every minor in the Northwest, except E, J. Roberts, W. .1. 0.
Wakefield, Austin Cnrhin Jr., and a few
others, who slood by the War Eagle,

question ns lo whether lie thought
$1,000,000 offered for the War Hagle,

Kagleis worth $5,000,000 to-day. Its
owners do not know the bonanza they
have, and when the mine is down 1,500
or2,000 tecl, gold ore of lbe highest
grade will be found."
The Captain is now inspecting tho
Salmon river and Slocan mines, and
will return to Northport in a week or
so, after which lle will go to Boundary

mining prospects,
[On sovcial occasions recently we
have made mention of Capt. S. U J)ur-

OfJIt FIRST ANNIVERSARY.
The present issue of The Advance
marks'the anniversary of its birth.
bn Apj-ifkOth, 1891, the first riiiinlier,
piibljsh'ed nt Fairview, made ltd appear*
Krlce,' Many marvelled greatly nf the
intrepidity of the proprietors at starting a paper in what was then termed
im oiit-of-the way part of tlie country,
and prophesied all manlier of disaster!
To those who were then so solicitous
for its welfaro the proprietor;; lit The
Advance lieg to offer the assurance
that llie support tendcrc'l to the paper
jiy its many patrons,'n support greater
than was ever iiccorded any other

gin suiipessfully lhrough the general
depression in business of the past year,

grateful feelings toward those whom
jt has  been  their pleasure to serve.
Upon entering our second year ot

JUMPING MINERAL CLAIMS.
Hdrdly a week passes but the news
arrives1 of some ciise of claim jumping

other caiiipU pn til lie present time
this district li!i;i |tarf| free of t|ie class
(if niisereaiit;;' fjnmyn us i-laini jumpers,
ind we triisi our uiiiiers aiid prospectors will be sufficiently careful in make-
ing locations, tb see that no loop hole
is left whereby these miserable scoundrels can profit nt their expense. The
better to place our miners upon their
guard, we puliljs|i sojqe o£ tile, de(i'c|'c
ce location of claims that have been
jumped, ani''Og which are the following:
- The size ot stakes. This class of defect was the most prevalent, and can
only be accounted for through sheer
negligence on the part of the locator in
(lie selection of timber not of sufficient
3,ize to square 4 inches and allow for
the usual shrinkage of tho wood In
drying, or to the fact that in nqnni-ing
the prists, bill-It1 hiiij |i(ii!(| left tiii" tli'.
corners which lind subsequently peeled
off, thereby reducing the face measurement of the stake hy say a quarter or
half au inch.
1 Among other defects noted, was the
use of old posts by re-locators, who
jind thought it not only not necessary
.0 furnish new timber, but had also
|ieen too indifferent to obliterate tlie
names and writing of tlin original locator or lociitoi-s, as one post, we are
assured, wns transcribed witl| the
names of five SlfBrehl InffivfrWlf.
'Another cusp was cited ljlwlilr}ha
party hud hicaled, a piece nf ground,',
dating the liicat'iou two weeks nheiid1
of time. It is ho'l', necessary lo suy'
that this ground whs not recorded.
Another ease brought (pour notice
was one in which two post's, ftn, 1 and
No. 2, on Ihe same claim, bore dJffHi'-
pnt dates, one iu 18111 and the other in
1806,
Locating a claim on a certain dale,
wailing until the fifteen days allowed
by lawliave nearly transpired and t hen
ehnnging' the ilnle, and (hereby holding the ground to the Bxclnsion of
others, is another liflle subterfuge
which there is every reason to believe
(las been practiced,

Now that the snow lias almost disappeared from some of, the highest

iiiiii Skylark camps, The amount of
work being done and to be done in
these camps this summer would fully
warrant the expenditure necessary for
the building of such a road. If tlie
funds already appropriated are not
sufficient to embrace the carrying opt
of this work, the least that could be
done would be to provide good serviceable trails (anil thai at once) so that
supplies, material,'etc., could be conveniently packed into the'oauips, without those engaged in the business having to pay attention to public im.
pniveinenls, when their time und labor
could be more profitably employed in
developing their- mineral claims. To
show how urgently these roads and
trails are iieeded, it is only necessary
to say that during the whiter it has
been the practice of those'visiting the
Summit camp, wliieli, by proceeding
up Boundary and Prior creeks could
be reached at a distanceot fifteen miles
from here, to first proceed to Stand
Porks, some twenty-seven miles, und
then up the North Fork of Kettle river
to llie camp, fifteen miles further on, clearly showing Hint tlie 27
miles of unnecessary travel was the
result of Imperfect trail communication, Ahout live miles of trail built on
Prior creek would furnish nn open
route thriiugluiiit the year. It is understood life Chief Commissioner of
Lands and Works will in the near
future visit the districl, und when here
nil matters of. Importance, such as the
foregoing,'should be brought to Ilis
notice liy" those interested in the immediate developinenl of the country,

of Mr. Meakin's death. The only con,
elusion that can therefore he arrived
ut is that the World Is not only a little
previous, hut that it is not. acquainted
ivit.h this gentleman's wonderful recuperative powers. The News can he
relied upon not to overlook a subject

lie our lot to chronicle the fact that
Mr. Meakin shall have passed lo another sphere of usefulness. His present illness; we trust, will be of a temporary nature.

Mr. Palmerston Interviewed In Spokane.
Harry P. Palmerston, who up to
three years ago was a well known citizen of Spokane, and now residing at
Midway, u new town in the Boundary
creek ruining district, is in the city on
his way home from an extended stay
in New York and other eastern cities.
Up to two weeks ago Mr. Palmerston
was manager of the Midway Townsite
Company, hut. gave it up to locate his
entire attention to his mining interests. Midway was formerly known ns
Boundary City. It is located on
Kettle river at the mouth of Boundary
creek in the heart of the Boundary
creek mining district, and little more
than a stone's throw across the Boundary line in British Columbia.
"The Boundary creek district will
soonWme to the front now," said Mr.
Palmerston yesterday. "Prospectors
who have been holding their claims are
selling out to men who have capital to
develop them. Fan-ell k Midgeu, the
well known smelting men, and principal .owners of the Panett smelter at
Butte, have been investing heavily in
Boundary creek, and have already secured thirteen properties, which they
are going to develop, and other mining
capitalists are also getting hold of
some.'nf the best properties.
"Now that wo are gel I ing capitalists
to take hold the only thing we lack is
transportation. D. C. Corliiu hns announced it his intention to extend the
Spokane Falls k Northern into that
country just as soon as he is assured
of sufficient tonnage to warrant it- 10

Mr. Palnierslon retains the same

years ago, and be says the best investment he knows of for idle money now
is in Spokane real estate, which, he
says, can never again he bought, so

friends and looking after some liusiness
matters.—Spokesman-Review.
gu with an unhealthy liody, and I main
tain that the mind of a person with a
healthy body must of necessity be a strong
und a rig irons que.
Must of the ills of the body can be traced
back to the liic|f of free and intelligent
physical education In childhood.
I often think, knowing as I do what osn
lie ,l,iiio with proper care, what a stiippn-
'lous improvement could lie iiiade In the
genera] health, in one generation, The
average man would lie taller and more
robust, capable of more work and of greater
enjoyment, than the average inan of tlio
present day. The average woman would
Ihi stronger and more beautiful than the
average woman of to-day, and both men
nnd women would live longer. That
this can he easily be accomplished I am
convinced.
1 would have a gymnasium Iu every public school ill the city.. I would mala- il iino
of the requirement* of attendance at tho
puhlic schools that every pupil should onco
or twice every day go tli rough ft gymnastic
exercise, however brief.
It is not desired to make a race of pugilists, but it is desired tq make a race of
healthy men and women, which the children now iu the public schools will not
grow up into. What is needed for growing children is such simple exercise as will
ey.ery day bring into play every muscle In
the ixidy.
Without, exercise some muscles lie dor-
miuit. Tiiey never develop. Without exercise for all of the body the digestion is
impaired, the circulation of the blood Is
weakened, the quality of the blood is deteriorated and the foundations are laid for
ultimate ctironicdisease, which must come
sooner or later.
It must not be supposed thnt what I here
propose would add any great burden to
the expense of puhlic school maintenance
or require the erection of any new buildings. The public school buildings now in
existence are quite sufficient for the purpose.
All it would be necessary to do would lie
to set apart in every public school a large
room to he used as a gymnasium. No elaborate equipment of gymnastic appliances
would lie necessary. A few hundreds of
dollars of expense would sulllee to lit up a
public school with horizontal bars, rings,
trapezes, Indian clubs, rowing machines,
boxing gloves, etc.
A bare floor Ib better than a carpeted
apartment and blank walls lietter than
walls elaborately panelled. In a good-
sized room of Ihis kind hundreds of public
school pupils could take exercise at one
time. Where the schools are crowded the
c asses could succeed each other, and thus
the gymnasium would be in use at every
hour ot the day.
The teachers would And this the most
popular of all the attractions of the
sclio ils. The pupils would look forward
to their gymnastic exercise. It would
teach them how to piny. It would teach
them Ihe use of their bodies. It would
teach them to respect their bodies and to
.-rive to excel in feats of agility anil
strength, thus leading them to love outdoor guines and to feel at home iu all
kinds of play.
For It must lie remembered thnt It is ns
na; uinl for a child to want to play as It Ib
lor a kit tun. Nature instils this Into each
for the distinct purpose of exercising every
muscle nt n time when the muscles are
growing, and the child thnt. gets a chance
to play freely in the open air all day has
un enormous advantage at the very commencement oflife
Another duty of tlie public schools
should lie to teach every pupil to lour how
to swim. It is just as liii,,.:t.ant that a
mail know how to swim as liow to earn a
living, and even more so, for in the one
case he must rely absolutely upon himself
when the time comes.
It Is a very easy thing to teach children
pf the proper age how to swim. During
t!-" past summer I taught a couple of lit-
i;.' girls how to swim in less limn an hour.
A swimming tank should lie a necessary
part of every public school gymnasium!
and It could be fitted up at very little
expense.
No child should be graduated who had
uot acquired this easy accomplishment,
whicli, unlike nil other accomplishments,
is never forgotten. They may forget
\vl\at they learn [out of tho books, but
they can never forget how to swim.
One of the ad vantages of children knowing how to swim is tills, that it induces
them to tuke exercise in the water. Hoys
who cannot swim, and there nre thousands
of thein, aro careful about going into tlio
water. The cousequeiice is ttuit they lose
the Inestimable advantages derived from
(his most, exhilarating and body-building
sport,
I would also have every child In the pull*
lie schools (aught to know what the luuivin
body is like, and the functions of the different parts, They should know every
muscle und how to exercise it. They
should kttltiv v.-lint are1 tho proper and Improper things to put into Ihe stomach,liow
tin-1 an -.• work, und the Ill-effects of to-
bacq.i, ih efTocts ol alcohol on the system
and (la., necessity for pure air In 'lie Hulking of pure blood, These are simple questions io anatomy ami the solenco of health
ilia. ' ' i iuu take luilf an hour a woek
in.iu Hi time devoted to oilier studies in
tlm pul 11  mis, where now the nilnd is
i.i ve.Kpet! hi the expense of tiie body.
I I" Iii ve i lint children taking constant
nv.-ri:-. every day, who know .owto follow ti,, simplq ruln.-;of bodily health, call
learn more per hour than the unhealthy
children now crowding our schools. Their
aiii.ib, are brighter nud inure alert, llieir
memories more retentive, their reasoning
faculties more sharply developed when
the hlootl courses freely through tjieir
ve .ia than when it is sluggish as the re-
suit oi" indoor life without proper exercise
lo.-all llie muscles.
A healthy mind in a growing ohlldlsllke
a sponge, eager for knowledge at every
,,ore. 'Ihe dull and stupid children of
wiiuiii we heal' hi every school nre in near
ly every Instance sickly. The healthy
child is happy under nil circumstances. It
eats well ami sleeps well. Its body nud
mud expand together, the one stimulating the other.
One of the advantages of the kind of
■. ysiciil education for children which I
re suggest is that it tenches them how
i play,  It induces them to seek outdoor
e.o'rcise and alnun'ineiit.    Many thou*
...mis of children do not know how lo play,
They are afraid of rough games, Tiiey do

is good for them, a fact which too many
parents neglect. ' (Jhiidren should be
taught lo ktifjw tlii^t. pure ni; is necessary
for their well-being^. They should lie made
to learn thai the foul air of tenements is
injurious, and that ventilation is better
tliuu close and overheated rooms.
One of the most, injurious practices of
parents is putting children, to sleep with
each other or with older people A father
recently hroilglit to mc a,' weak aiid sickly
child. Jledid not knowu-hatailed it. As
soon as I learned thnt the chilli sjept with
an older member of the family j risked hiuj
to stop it at once, and the child, without
any medicine, and sleeping thereafter
(done iu a well-ventilated rooiq, began tq
pick up Immediately, fn a couple of
months the child was completely festered

In conclqslon, I havo tq again repeat
that the health of the rising generation is
as Important as the health of the present
general ion. The cure of the physical
well being qj tjie children j'n t|io public
schools is as npich the true duty of the
.State us tlie care of their mental well-
(aelng,
The true gloty of ft iieoplo Is not their
wealth, but their health.. Wc should
strive to make not millionaires but men.
It is easier lo improve the public health
hy beginning with tho children than by
attempting to cure the adults. The Improvement of the wholo race is within
pasy reach on these lines, nnd must surely
|ki followed liy intellectual and moral improvement where the body is healthy.
As the I wig is llent so shall the tree
grow. You cannot teach people to take
proper exercise iind to give proper care to
their bodies after neglecting those duties
for tlie larger part of their lives.
Hut when these duties are Inculcated in
parly youth the habits of childhood are retained through life. A well-developed
body is more precious than a well-developed
bank account, and a good appetitite is
worth more than f 1.000,000.—J. F. Lftflln,

'■'On our return trip to tlie count." a
traveler.returned from the foothills of the
Amies said to a Globe-Democrat man, "I
sow a thrilling incident of life* in the .South,
American forest, a fight to t1 ••>. death he-
tweeu two l)tg pumas. Those great lieastij
are fierce, hard (ightersatall times against
a common enemy, hut it i.s only during
the mating season that the males light
anions themselves, and when they do com
test means death to one or both of them.
"For strength and courage they are thy
equals of the African lion or the timers of
the Indian jungles We ivere making our
way down a narrow wooded ravine in the
foothills of the Andes, and had stopped for
our midday meal on the hank of a small
mountain stream of clear water. After
we had finished the meal 1 laid down fora
short rest, hut in less than five minutes I
was aroused by the most terrific roaring,
snapping and snarling of wild beasts I
had ever heard.
'VPumns, and there's going to be 0,
tight,' said our guide in a whisper.
"It was not difficult to locate* tho animals. They were not more than 100 yards
away, and by creeping through the brush
M quietly as po-sible we were able to get
near enough to see the fight without disturbing them.
"When we caught sight of the two mil:
mals they were crouching close to tho
ground, facing each other, iu a small space
under some large trees. They were the,
finest specimens of the puma I ever saw.
''They were probably thirty feet apart,
and aa they crouched there glaring at each
other tlioy looked like ^iant cats about to
spring on their pre.v\ Pugilists never
spunvd with greater caution than did those
big brutes. Their ti^s were switching
hack ttiul forth, and their, eyes were like,
ballsof fire. Slowly the-y- moved around
in a circle, ail the time captiously getting
Closer and closer together It was evident
that each was waiting fjor tho other to,
make the first lejwl. For, more than ten
minutes they watched and waited. The
roaring and snarling we, heard when they
first met had ceased. They made no sound
now as they watched, for a chance to,
spring.
"Our own nerves were trembling under
the strain, when at last the two groat
brutes rose In the air at the same instant
and, like catapults, came, together with,
a thud that could have been heard
ano yards away. They dropped to
the ground and for almost ten
minutes all we could make out was two
great brown bodies rolling over and over
iu a death struggle. They made no,
outcry of any kind, hut evo y few seconds-wo could hear their powerful jawH
come together with a snap like tiie closing of a well-oiled steel trap, finally
they began to weaken, and as their struggles grew less violent we could see that
.mill of them were covered with blood,
while llieir Ihsh was torn to shreds, Iu
five minutes more tlie light was over and
the two giants of t-lir forest were st retched
out at full length 011 the ground, clasped
in each other's limbs, just as two playful
kltt'-'iissujiiHlijic!, llciiowit together, They
struggled feobly'a little longer and 1 lien
both of thein lay perfect,y still, Hutli
were dead "hen we got, tu ihem, and I
never siuv animals so torn tn pl'.-cea The
entrals of both were torn out and scalier-
ed over the ground W hero the J' had fo tight,
and in their necks were great ragged
holes, from whicli the.'(tjood ii/nl Howed in

They each had a score of wounds that
would have killed any nuiuial with less
tenacity of life,"

Hook Creek IHvIhIoii of Vulc JHstricfc
(loTe.rninenl Olllee,
Osoyoos. fill. January( IWJ, t-d, Those interested in mining und hydraulics will be glad In have some account of the Ppble system of raising
water from non-flowing wells, mines,
.etc., which lias been introduced into
Canada by tjie Ing^rsoll-Scrgeanl
Prill (in., of Montreal,
The following description is given liy
fhe makers;—Tbe pump proper consists of only two plain open-ended pipes
fhe larger one with tin enlarged end-
piece constituting the discharge pipe,
and the smaller-one let into the enlarged end-piece of the discharge pipe
constitutes wealr.inlet pipe, through
which the compressed air is conveyed
to the enlarged end-piece to Ihe under*
side of the water to be raised. No
vaJvjjBi buckets, plungers, rods, or
other moving parts are used within the
pipes or well,
In pumping, compressed air is forced
through the air pipe into the enlarged
end at the bottom of the water pipe,
llietiee by the Inherent expansive force
nf tbe compressed air, layers or pistons
pf alt! are formed in the witter pipe,
.wliicl] lift uml discharge; tin* water fay-
iti'slht.i|iigli th|, upper end of tlie water
discharge pipe,  At the beginning of
tile(iperalinn, the water surface out*
iiiueuf the pipe anil the wnler surface
inside of the pipe arc al the same level
hence (he vertical pressures per square
Inch nn1 equal at the submerged end nf
the pipe, outside ami iusi.lt-. As nil- is
fon-eeftnto tlie lower end of the water
pipe, it. forms alternate layers with the
water, so tlmt the pressure per square
inch uf the column I bus made up of air
and water, as it rises inside of the
water pipe, i.s less IJinti the pressure of
jvtttjjt' per square inch outside of the
pipe. Owing to t his difference of pressure, the water flows continually from
[he outside to within the water pipe by
gravity force, and its ascent through
the pipe is free from shock, jar, or
noise of any kinu.
Those air sections, or strata of compressed air, form watertight bodies,
whicli, in their ascent in tlie act of
pumping, permit no I!slipping" or
liack How of water. As each air stra-
juin iifogi-esses upwards to the spout,
it expands on i}? way in proportion as
the ovgrlying weight of water is diminished by its discharge, so thai the
air section, whicli may have been, say,
pO lbs, per square Inch at Hrst, will he
only 1.74 lbs. whon it underlies a water
layer of four feet in length al, the
spout, until Anally this air section,
.when it lifts up and throws out. this
four feet of water, is of the same tension as the normal atmosphere! ibus
proving that the whole of its energy
was used in work, and Unit this pump
is a perfect expansion engine.
As the weight of the water outside
of the discharge, pipe (llie head) is one-
Ihiid greater pep square inch than tho
aggregate wnler sectioijs within the
pipe when in operation, it follows thai,
tlie energy due to ihis one-third greater weight is utilised in overcoming the
resistance of entry Into the, pipe, and
all the friction within it.
The Pohle "ait- lift" pump gives
ninety per cent, of efficiency from the
air receiver in water pines of largo diameter, and as a rule, above eighty per
cent. It retains this efficiency without
repairs, or until the pipes rust through,
jvliercas in-unary bucket and plunger
pumps gradually lose efficiency from
llie Hrst stroke they make, and Irise it
rapidly if the water contains sand, or
js acid in character, It has been estimated by competent, experts, that iin-
dcr favorable conditions aud large diameters of water and air pipes, l,(Mn,<KX)
gallons of wat er can he raised 1(H) feet
nigh with one and a half tons of good
coal.
Tlie air reservoirs are all strongly
made of homogeneous steel, tested and
guaranteed at working pressure of lit)
poundsi they ace provided with' the
proper openings for Inlet and outlet,
pipes, manhole and head, drain cocks,
pressure giiuge and safety valve,
As the pump has no valves, no standing water remains in the pump column
after the operation of pumping | it. recedes Into the well, and there is none
k'ft to freeze in cold weather, 'flic capacity of Ihe pump is unlimited, and
pumped by branches ol air-conveying
pipes, taken from a main air pipe from
the air compressor; fqr compressed air
may be conveyed for miles without
material loss of power.
It often happens that a single well
does not yield the quantity of water
desired, but tha1 a number of wells
would give the satisfactory result. By
the oldfasliioiied deep well pump, each
well would require a separate " steam
head," separate sets of rods, and the
other pai-aphenalla, which, with the
condensation of the steam, when conveyed to tlie several steam heads,
would lie very cost ly in the first outlay
and very wasteful nf power in its maintenance, to say nothing of loss of time
in repairs, By the Pobla process, but
one air compressing plant is required,
and this nmy be placed in llie engine
room or the boiler house, directly nutlet- Ibe eyes of the engineer, ft inn
whence the air niny be conveyed to the
several wells,  a!l   of  whicli  may  lie

of Montana, With u mountain of ore
ill sight, estimated nt 2,000,000 Ions,
and llie cost of mining and milling reduced tu tin- lowest possible notch-
tills property will far outrank anything
known to the milling communities of
llie United Slates, says Ihe Townsend
Messenger, A clean up of SlatX) a day

tlmt. this result is obtained only KH)
feet from the surface.
The mountain upon which litis bonanza is situated is nearly 1,000 feet
high, and the conmtitiy intend to commence tunnels all along the sides of
the mountain, about 120 to iiii feet
apart, as they will have lo run only a
short distance until the ore is struck,
with no water to interfere with the
workings. The expense of running
these tunnels will lie very slight as
compared with the advantages which
will lie gained.
The I. B. Hammond Co., of Portland
Oregon, has the contract fnr constructing their lO-slump mill, and are pushing the work as fast as possible, The
excavation is nearly finished, and most
of the lumber necessary for the croc-
lion of the required buildings is ou (lie
ground. The mill is of the latest Improved style and battery; all the
framework is made of cast steel.

Corbin ia reported in tlie Spokane Review tq have made this somewhat
enigmatical statement about, ihe Red
Mountain railway,' Work is going on
along lbe proposed line of the road
into Trail I reek. The right-of-way is
being cleared across the line, and we
expect some day to have the dirt Hying
in all directions,' Mr. Corbin undoubtedly lias reasons for not being more
explicit. The work that is being done
on this side is necessary to save the
Provincial charter, The eoinplel ion of
the much-needed railway may depend
ultimately on the following considerations:—First, as to whether a bonus is
received from tlie Dominion Government from whom a charter is now
sought. And secondly, whether (limit it is possible to procure a special
act of Congress authorizing the construction of a railway running through
n Indian reservation, as a portion of
this particular line does.   We have a

surmount all difficulties, and therefore
we believe Trail Ureek will not he kept
