SlMlLrJAJHEBN PLATINUM MINKS,
Second Largest Deposit of thii Mi-titl
, In the World.
The gunge (if u country's mineral
wealth is generally measured by her
production of thu two precious metals
—gold and silver. i\'ot alone in the
outpuLtif these two must British Oo-
liiinliia lie considered, as others equally
valuable, although not so extensive,
are to bo found within her territory.
Among these other metals platinum
In,Ids perhaps first place, and British
Columbia for her production of the
same has only one superior rival, viz.,
Russia, where it Is derived from the
pincers nn llie east slope of the Ural
Mountains,
Prior in the discovery of the metal in
Ibla Provinco Russia bud nu formidable competitor, and therefore ruled, or
rather dictated, the price to ho paid for
the same in the world's market, Hut
nfsn greul economic Importance was
its discovery here that ii had ilm effect
of not only disturbing the base of supply, hut also of reducing tlie metal's intrinsic value, In the past two nr three
years there has, however, been an upward tendency in the range of value,
oiving to various reasons, the lirst qf
whicli lnnv be considered the demand,
for the metal, which constantly exceeds tlie meager supply, and also the
fact Hint although it is known to exist
in grctit abundance mi Um Siinilkaineen, yet the companies owning the
placer grounds have not in the past
been working the same to nny greet
extent, und, in fact, are (inly now nbout
to assutpc active operations, With
this end iu view tbe Tiilniiieeii Improvement and Hydraulic Company, on
March 12th lust increased the amount
of their capital stock to 500,000 shares.
This company has expended a large
sqpi of money on their property, but
owing to the fact that it is a close corporation, nunc of the stock luis ever
been placed upon the market,
Among those composing the com.
puny may be found the names of
iiiuiiy prominent Baltlsn, Columbians
nnil eastern men, notably H,, Abbott
of the C. P, R,, A. ilusuicr, ,1. Liidluw
estate, J. Wilson, A. Kwen, K Malum,
B. Douglas, ,1. Armstrong, Captain K.
(J. Tallow, IJ. Lockerby and others.
Benjamin Douglas, Esq,, of Now
Westminster, is president of the Company*
Active Operations will be curried nu
this summer, nnd work will be prosecuted under n vigorous management,
The wnlcr whicli will be utilized will
be taken out of Eagle creek, fot the
conveyance of which to the placer
grounds a large and lung lliinie and
ditch will be necessary.
Many interesting fuels are related ie
tbe discovery of platinum on the Slinil-
kanieeii, some of whicli would show
that at Iirsl the miners who were working the pincers there considered it to
be nothing more than white iron, and
of no value. In fact, it was by them
looked upon as a nuisance. Interfering,
ns ii did, with tbe operation of washing for gold, as by ils specific gravity
it accumulated in Ihe sluice boxes, nnd
being in close juxtaposition with tlie
gold,,In tbe ratio of nlioul 2 to 1—2oz,
of platinum to 1 of gold—it will readily lie understood what a trouble it was
to separate the two, and especially were
the miners aggrieved, who after separating tlie pesky stuff, ns they culled it,
the same bud to lie thrown away, and
thrown 11 way il was, until such lime as
its true value became known. One of
the pecularltles of this metal is, that it
is never found in paying quantities except in placer ground. Nn ledges containing it ever having been discovered,
other than the small quantity found
und not worth extracting in the nickel
ores ul .Sudbury, Prof. Dawson in giving bis opinion as to ils origin 011 the
Siniilkameen,  considers the Dlnrlte
belt whicli crosses ihe river just betow
the mouth of Kugle Creek, mill has
been cut through by It, to 'l0 ^'le ""*■
trlx of the platinum'1 uml the appear*
ance of the nicinl would tend to prove
this theory, as It is always of a very
rough nuiiirc, showing that disintegration bus taken place close ut hand.
Assays show ii lo contain 85,per cenl
pure platinum uml .'1 per ccni Iridium.
Other geologists, such us Van Gotta
nml Prof, W, P. Blake contend that
lbe uiolbcr ruck of pintioum is siii'pcn*
tine, The must, ntjoinlslng location,
therefore, hi which to search fur this
metal would be where Mm alluvial ijc-
pusils haVO been furiiiiiil fruln Ihe debris ufl be scrpciilinfills rocks; mid us
ihe formation is not altogether unknown in many pints ol ll. C, it is
ijiiiic possible Uinl, this metal may some
ilny lm found in paying quantities iu
oilier pnrlsof lbe jirovince.

evening, he could not help but have
fell pleased at tbe very pleasant way
in whioh bis memory was kept

been sorely tempted to throw aside his
saintly dignity for a few hours and join
Ihe merry rruivd who were chasing thu
Heeling hours with Hying feet in the
dizzy mazes of the dance.
The residents uf Midway have pre'

LAND OF THU BOOM.

Trail creek is booming. Every day
tbe boom grows bigger and bigger.
Already it is rivalling the stampede to,
the Slocan two years ago, and tbe rush
seems to have jusl begun. Yesterday
two dozen pilgrims of all complexions,
characters and occupations started
from this city bound for Rosslaud. On
Friday as inuny or more are expected
lo board the train, Prospectors, merchants, Investors—all classes njre In tlm
rush. How long it will last or what it
will be by the time the railroad gets
into camp, Solomon himself couldn't,
tell,
At Bosslntid two sawmills are running night and day, but cannot begin,
to meet the demand, From all along
the Spokane k Nnrthe.in, even all the
way lYuui Spokane, lumber Is being-
shipped iii, und Northport's sawmill is,
jugging alnng as fust ius possible, It.
costs $10 a thousand to haul, the hunt,
ber fifteen miles from Noithport to
Rosslaud, and I be road is bad just now,,
but thai doesn't make any difference—
buildings of some kind must be built.
and must be built very quick.
And yet, just at this t i,tm\m*ly about
fifty miners are working nnnl hardly
any ore is coming out, It is there alt
right—tlinu-iajiils of tons of it—hut the,
roud along Sheep creek is pretty soft

It WOllhl seem that at last tlm civic
tmigln which has given sn much trouble
to the citizens of Vernon is about tn be
unravelled, the aldermen having come
to the sensible conclusion not to remain in office, but to allow a new election tu take place, In this lino of action they show a commendable foresight, as It is evident that a large percentage of the voters still cling to the

Its the following will show. A few
days ago a citizen, Mr. T. McDonald
by name, had occasion to leave his
cabin for a few hours. In the meantime a Mr, Clement Cliit'ingbiu-ii sought
Mr. McDonald on business, went to
(he cabin, found It open, entered and

In the eyes of the whole world by the
repudiation of a just debt, ThcSentlle
Press Tillies, commenting op the subject, thus concludes;—.
"This congress seems neither to care
for the national credit in finance or oa*
tinniil honor in diplomacy. The
ground upon which the appropriation
for the sealing award was refused was
that many of the claimants are American citizens who simply hoisted the
British flag on their schooners to escape liability to the laws of the United
States, There is probably no doubt
about this i but it seems In be a late

The time to have done so was before

The Province, published in Victoria,
thus facetiously announces iia first
year's birthday : " Were it not that
the Province was at the start shown
even more than the usual amount of
cold shoulder and suspicion which the
' old red sandstone' element of our discriminating fellow townsmen, with a
breadth of mind singularly Its own,
offers to anything not |n exact accord*
ance with the requirements of the
place as it somewhatorudely existed in
1815, there would he nothing note,
worthy in the life of this newspaper.
That we are a voar- old this week is
fairly good proof that the business is
not exactly in the hands of the sheriff,
and a call nt the editorial offices will
satisfy the most sceptical that the editor is still out of jail." Apropos, it
will not be out of place to remind our
readers that The AOYANOH also, ere
many weeks, will have celebrated its
first anniversary. Then will the stern
and uncompromising demand be issued
for the renewal of those sniiill but
necessary contributions from subscribers which alone keep the unfortunate
editor and his staff from being thrown
on the mercy of a cold and pitilesss
world.   Selal'il

An Hem is going the rounds of the

nothing remarkable about this. Every

another; from whisky lo rags, and

option on (be Lend King, Tin's body of
ore curries the largest percentage of
lead to be found in any elnlui in the
Boundary creek ilisiricl, nnd when
smelting works are erected here,
should be in greul demand.
Il is reported that tho owners of the
hydraulic clniin ut the uioulli of Rock
oreek have leased the property to Kee
uvt, u.iw ui tne jjruicipui ■jiuuese ot
that place and head of u local Chinese
company. By the terms of the lease it
is understood that no less than ten
men are to he kept at work constantly
during the season. It seems a great
pity that the property could not be
worked by white labor, as then there
might lie a possibility of the money
paid out in wages finding its way into
local channels of trade.
Quite a nuinher of claims have al
ready heen taken up on Ah Shim
creek this spring, principally by Chinese. There js every possibility of a
large amount of money lieing taken
out of the creek this summer, as it is
well understood the Chinamen who
worked there last season did not do at
all badly, and of necessity last year's
work consisted iu great part of prospecting the ground.
Mr. W. Brown, manager and principal owner of the Volcanic Mountain
claim, on the north fork of Kettle
river, passed through Midway a few
days ago, and reported the tunr.,■!
which is being driven hy himself n I
assistants to tup the vein on the claim,
to he now in a distance of 300 feet,
This is tlm kind of development work
for prospeotors to carry on to prove
their property. If they are successful
in striking a large body of oro their
reward w[ll be represented, not by
hundreds of dollars, but by hundreds
of thousands, as Mr, Brown considers
that the day they strike the ledge with
the tunnel this same claim will be
worth to them a million dollars. This
mode of developing their property is
certainly a departure from the general
methods adopted by the average run
of prospectors, and whether they become millionaires or not, one thing is
certain, they will richly deserve a
grand reward for the greet amount of
work done. The development work,
as it stands to-day, cost a good many
thousands of dollars, as well as the
time spent by them iu driving the tunnel, but such is the determination of
these men to reach the goal of their
ambition that they would almost run
into the centre of the earth rather
than be disappointed,
The Oro Denaro, Mr. W. A. Corbett
owner, has been bonded to Mr, W, T.
Thompson, of Fairview, for the sum of
$30,000. This is without doubt the
largest copper property on the American continent. Although undeveloped,
it has a showing of sulphuret of copper ore which, we are given to understand, is some 000 or 700 feet in width
on the surface, The bond was secured
in the interest of a strong eastern mining syndicate, and on the securing of
which Mr, Thompson can be congratulated, as it is well known many overtures have recently been mude to the
owner. The vein of ore on the Emma
claim, owned and being developed by
the Parett Smelting Co,, runs out into
the Oro Denaro, thereby lending an
additional value to the latter property,
as recent development lends to prove
that the Emilia is likely to turn out to
be a body of ore similar to that found
in the Trail creek country, equally
rich and of enormous size, Nature has
lent a strong hand to the development
of the Oro Denaro, as by its peculiar
position on the face of the mountain it
is a property easily worked. Tunnels
driven at the base of the mountain
would provo the ore bodies at a depth
of 250 feot. It is safe to say the Ixiqd
gives to the holder uu option on ono of
the hest copper properties to lie found
in any of the camps, The samegentle-
iiinti has secured an option on the
Bruce claim on Ingram mountain,
which is owned by Messrs. Synionds
and Wallace, and is a large body of
peacock copper ore. The bond on the
property requires that considerable
development work he done, the same
to he carried out this summer.

Conditions of weather and climate at*
probably the most Important of all known,
agencies in the causation of pneumonia,
The influence of the cold anil dampness iu
Increasing the liabilities to acute iullara.
matory diseases of the chest are well
known. The disease Is also more common
In temperate climates than in regions
chnraeterijed by great beat cr extrenw
cold.
Pneumonia li a trouble which falls so
quickly upon one's system that it is hard
to discover the precise moment of attack,
"Wear a chamois skin Jncket lined with
flannel next (he skin nil winter, if une has
any predisposition or Inherited tendency
toward this weakness," advised one physician: "I flud triisajj excellent preventive."
"It is also a good Idea," he continued,
•'to keep the blood well nourished, Strong
fund Is a formidable foe to pneumonia, for
li puts the tissues In such condition from
its effect tlmt tlioy throw (iff the cold."
Pneuiuouiii goes harder with men than
women, ull doctors agree, the reason lieing
that the lat or are more constantly exposed.
As soon as the rigor comes on, which Is
as significant of approaching danger as
the shrill rattle of a snake, go to bed. Do
not temporise with the disease. Discretion Is the best part of rslnr, and a quick
surrender makoj the enemy less Implacable.
Take nn effective laxative, U0 grains of
quinine, a hot lemonade, snd get a good
sweat, Stay in lied for M hours, and in,
six coses out of ten tbe symptoms will
pass.
In children the rigor Is often displaced
by a con' ulsion or violent fit of nausea.
In amateur treatment to prevent what
Inclines tnwird pneumonia, care should
always I e taken about the heart. Failure
of cardiac power Is the great source of
danger, and, therefore, digitalis, which is
such a help in ui:oniplicntei| caecs, to de,
press the oiroulafion, has to be spnrlugly
used where any 1 eurt weakness is discern,
ible.
Hut quinine reinnlns goad In all cases
and stages. U cut lie taken in large doses,
SO grains or more, repeated at Intervals of
24 hours. A lull dose of linindy is nu excellent accompanist to this,
Cold liuth'i are given at once, abroad, but
It is not a safe thing to try without tho
Sid of a physician, and would be classed
more us a cure thuu a preventative. So the
old-time remedy of a good hot mustard
foot Isitli with a blanket wrapped iilwut
the knees and a few blankets over the
body stands still a favor at the beginning
of the invasion.
Absolute quiet should lie maintained
from the start, for tho nerves play n great
part in the development of pneumonia,
The room should be at a temperature of
08''°grees. Milk, soup nr lemonade, qnlto
hot, liould lie the only food. If the fever
vises, cold sponging Is tlie thing to do, ex-
ccpt, in the cine of weak children, when
tepid liuths should lie substituted. Turpentine Inhalations assists exuectorntlon,
tone up the system and are pleasant for ilia
patient, Sumo of the physicians now favor
a hypodermic Injection of borax; claiming
that It Is an excellent arrester.
If I here is a palp In tho sldu or lungs,
which generally accompanies the rigor,
mustard plasters should lie used, and wet
or dry supping according to the intensity
of the pain. Somo physicians nre using
cliolorofiiiin sonkeil In cotton, with a dry
layer of the cotton protecting It, to nllevl*
ate the ills; re.ss. lint, again, this deserves
professional treatment,
If one bus any tendency toward lung or
throat trouble it Is well to remember Chat
the ankles and arms should lie kept well
covered. These parts are very sensitive,
and the woman who wesrsa short-sleeved,
lilgh-necked shirt Is more imprudent than
|f she exposed her throat, 1'or this reason
high boots should bo unvaryingly worn in
cool days outside of the house or Inside, if
there is no furnace he»t,-Jocelyu Psvies,

The mention qf the bicycle for women
Opens a Hold of mild controversy which li
only important becauso some of tho objections to its uso are taken from the hygen.
ic standpoint as well as from the social,
Many objectors contend Hint tho wheel Is
as tinilesirablo for women ns the sewing
machine, while the majority of parents
seriously object to what they feel to Iw
the unpleasant publicity of the exercise,
As a matter of health, which Is of the lirst
Importance, the writer has made many
inquiries aiming ivomen who use the
wheel regarding the effects of fhe exercise
upon them, and linn failed to discover a
single case of Injury or poor health result-
Ing from Its usu, On the contrary, tho
testimony to Its exhlllarsting and healthful effect is universal. Several other
American physicians, qualified to speak
from experience In their* practice- among,
womer,- havu warmly commended its use,
From the standpoint of a symmetrical
exercise, the position Is preferable <o that

of a sewing machine in several Important
respects: Instead of lieing bowed over in
a cramped position which restricts tho
action of the lungs, digestive nnd pelvic

/ THE  SltYLAHK   MINE.
This property wns discovered in .Inly,
18-113, by Mr. James Alivood nnil immediately hooded to the Bpulciuie k Great
Northern Mining Co. '(<|iis company
iu turn Iqused 100 feet (un the vein) to
Hyilions i\, lilt., who went to work nl
once iiiujjdiii-ing the full und winter of
lSi)3 shipped several Ions of high grade
silver-gold ore to the Tacoma smelter.
■ TliewlilHi oftlte vein was from eight
to fifteen inches;-the entire ledge being considerably wider. The character
iif the ore is a line grained steel galena
ivitlrsoiiurginy copper and ruby silver
anil.iissnying from 100. ounces to 700
anil 800 ounces silver nnd fnnn 1 toll
ounces gold per Ion. The strike of the
yeiii is north and south; dip between
50 degrees'iiiiii 00 degrees toward Ihe
east, The claim is situated ou Boundary mountain, one mile, and a hull' from
the main waggon road, with .vhich it
is now connected by a branch road,
tip to the present time it has lieen
necessary to!' pack" Ihe ore from the
mine to Grand Prairie, thence transfer
to wagons, but now the ore cnn be
loaded on to wagons at the mine, und
hauled io the railroad without a trans-
fur, Messrs. Symons'&Oo, worked the
properly until 18)4, when the original
Hinders look hold iiiul began mining
on n larger scnlo, They continued
sinking Ihe shaft from the 50 fool,
level (at which point, the vein had apparently " pinched old ") to n ilcplh of Illll
feci,,'hut did not. again tmcounlor the
vein. From tho bottom of thosbafl a
rls-iFl wns run enst sonic 15 feet ill the
impc of striking Ihe vein. Hut Ibis
idling, further search fm- tlin vein wns
iihiiiidoiied, I he prcsiiinpliiiii being I lint
jliclSkylark bud "dug mil," nud thia
ivns llie generally  accepted  opinion
Hillside.
Later developments, however, havo
shown lbe (liter I'lilliicj of Ibis widely
circulated statement,
Thi; shaft below llie 50 fool level wns
allowed \a Illl tip with water and the
eninpiiny begun sloping nut all ore lu
sight above this level; this helng accomplished, in August, 18111 (nt which time
thu Html payment- on the bond wus
due); ihe mine wns ubiiliiloiied, the
build thrown up nnd Ihe Skylark wus
looked upon, ns niiotbci' uxillnple of
aluivr'elisy it is to sjbk money in n
worthless mine." But fnr worse in tbe
possible rc/nills, the reports were
spread outside tlnif the Skylark (which
\vns the principle slopping mine) bud
I ii completely dug out und not until her pound of ore could be found—in
fact it .seemed its [hough the Skylark
isais io be lbe niwMiuiciiL erected, on the
grave uf'the Boundary creek mining
camp's. Everywhere one could hem:
the reniark made that the Boundary
creek mining catnip were not of niuclj
account,as the mines, all "digoot," the
Skylark always lining referred to as no
example. As in nil mining camps, we,
certainly have some small "gash"
vgins that do hot reach n great depth,
bill there is no reason to cloubl Hint our
(rue veins will extend to ns great
depths ns,my in Hi" -Noel Invest when
they are once found in place. Owing
In disturbances of the earth's crust
some of the veins have faulted in the
upper portions, but when the solid for
inatloil is found the veins will doubt-
loss continue downward.
But to return to the Skylark. The
claim lay idle but for n short, time,
when Ihe owners, Messrs. Douglas, Atwood, Wake and Johnson begun a systematic search for the vein where it,
had faulted al the 50 fool level. The
hanging wall was broken Into and at a
distance of six leet (he vein was found ;
the shaft was then continued, Ihe rock
taken out, being dumped Into the old
shaft sunk by the oilier parlies, and
which wus entirely under llie oro. Al
a depth of 76 feel on lbe vein ii again
faulted and u drift was runensl 25 feel,
when llie vein was struck again, Ihis,
however, was found lo he not io place,
bill a total of 12 feel, flout Hie 75 fool
break, and here Ihe ledge apparently in
place was found, The ledge hern Is 80
Inches between walls, with0to 8 Inches
of ore oo the banging wall side, and a
narrow seam ("Jtril") on the fool.
The ore is ns good ns nny yel found hi
the mine, nud wilh a lilHe more depth
will undoubtedly "qmne in "as solid as
ever.
Assays of ore taken at the 75 fool
break yielded 71*1 ounces silver, 1 ounce
gold; 78(1 ounces silver, 1 ounce gold ;
nod 268 ounces silver, 1 ounce gold.
Ten Ions excellent ore extracted while
sinking the shaft (.'(in he seen ii, I he ore
house.
A total depth of 117 feat (shaft and
drift) bus heen reached, wilh an actual
depth of 87 feet on the vein, thus tend;
ing to prove io a large measure the
continuity of the vein, and tn disprove
the statements thut mil' ore bodies do
not "go down." The Skylark lend has
been traced Ihe foil length of the claim
to the north, nnd well over on the extension the Denver*, while to the
south it bus been traced to within a
short distance of lbe south line.
Messrs. Douglas uinl co-laboreis are to
be congratulated on the excellent showing In their property—the result of In-
leOigenl mining—and the district nsa
whole will benefit largely from It,—

Quite a little delegation of Spokane
prospectors will start .for the Fort
Steele country, about [lie middle of
next month. There would be a great
many inoro of them if money were
more plentiful, but Ihe merchants of
thnl country have a habit of charging
about live prices for supplies, anil this
has a tendency to discourage the pros-
pectin's who don't have enough cash on
hand In. buy a season's.grub lu Spo-
kaneand pack il with Ihem into the

Mosl of those who will go intend to
hunt, for placer properties, although
(here Is likely lo be more activity in
ipinilz prospecting Ibis year. This is i
owing lo hopeful signs that the Canadian Pacilic will actually ektend its
Crow's Nest Pass line to the Kootenay
river tins year, aljing the lines snr
veyed hist autumn.
"There ure plenIy of quartz proper
ties along Ihe Upper Kootenay," snid
an old prospector to-day, "but they
have always been neglected because
there was no way to ship out the rock
nnd ship in machinery und supplies except at enormous expense. But once
let the railroad graders begin work on
the 0, P. extension nnd quartz locations will be in lively demand. And
there ure good signs that, the dirt will
