London, Aug. (I.—Thai extreme diplomatic tension exists between Si.
Petersburg und London is generally

It is hoped that tlie (Inner stand]

Russian aggressiveness,

Another Election Bluff Exposed.
Wliilc the general election campaign
wusoii, it will he remembered, especially during the lust few weeks before
polling day, the Turner 'Government
and the organs industriously sl rove lo
make the electors believe that certain
public works, calculated to Influence
votes in favor of the Government,
were being actually curried uut, in
good faith- chief among which wore
the much boasted, but, never constructed (llenurn-Teslin wagon road,
and the Coosfc-Koobenay Itailway, upon which, It was announced and reiterated, .villi a great flourish of organic
trumpets, work was about to be started at any number nf points (covering
every constituency which the line
traversed).
In trying In make both of these
bluffs stick, the Government stuck at
nothing. Not only did the organs
print boom articles about the work
going on or immediately iu contemplation, lint the hunt worked word of
honor of Minsiters wus brought into
requisition, nnd made to do duty tacked on to letters and telegrams, which
wero read at meetings and paraded in
the organs, us indisputable clinchers
to convince the doubters, More than
that, as the election got "dangerously
near," a so-called construction survey
was actually started from this city,
with Mr. A. K. Hill, ('. I'I., in charge,
ostensibly and ostentatiously fur the
purpose of locating lbe line,  from the
const fo Penticto f the V. V.k P.
Railway,
Thut, the deliberate deception und
bud faith of Ihe Government with
regard to lhe (iloiiiira-Tcslin wagon
road have been signally-exposed, .since
the election, we need only reuitlld out'
readers, here. And now comes the
complete confirmation of the freely
expressed conviction by this paper, at
the time, that the alleged construction
survey, on the line of the V. V. k I'I.,
begun on the eve of the election, wns
simply of u piece with the Turner
Government's system of election bluffs
to endeavor to unduly Influence votes
in their own favor, The conflrmation
of this fact; above alluded to, is llie
authoritative reporl received, to-day,
that .Mr. Hill has received Instructions
tn stop the survey at once, and discharge his entire stall'.
The Government, of couase, were
not ostensibly and directly carrying
on tills survey, McKonr.lo A: Maun
were supposed to lie doing su. But
there was no reasonable dnuhl, at Ihe
time, and thosequel niny be said to
fairly prove It, thai the Government
instigated the bluff, for puliiical purposes, und were behind the work.
Even if desirous of carrying nn their
various bluffs, requiring expenditure,
nny further, the Governuienl would,
in all probability, lie unable to do so,
us it is shrewdly surmised, from indications, that the Hunk of H. ('.,
which bus been very accommodating
to the Government in the matter nf
over drafts, all these years has shut
down, at lust, for ils own protection,
in view of tlie Government's wild
recklessness during (he elections, and
hopeless position since.—The Columbia.

on lhe G. A. H. vein. This location baa
ecu made on a vein of pyrrhotlte,
The "O. B." has two distinct veins t
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem In
be the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make Ihis conclusive.
The second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feel. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E, gave
$20.00 in gold.
On llie "S. II. B," iire'two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now1 being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
MS ozs., copper 11.00 per cent., or
$1(1.11 for all values,
The "Fred H."was located in De
centner, 1805, more as giouud for a
basis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its present value,
although there is liltle doubt lhat (he
large vein on the O, B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
this claim,
The ",T. A. C." hns a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feel.
The ore carries a considerable percent
nge of of copper anil $10 in gold.
Tbe remaining six claiinsare all good
prospects, but ns yel very liltle development work has been done on
them,
