Assay Office to Purchase Oold.
Ottawa, Aug. 6.--Acting on nig-
ge*tinti.s received from Vancouver and
the west, the government has derided
to esiahlish the assay nflloo recently
opened in Vancouver as a purchasing
agency also. Details have now leen
excluded, and tht. system is mud"as
perfect as possible.
It is to he arranged immediately lhat
gold will be paid for by lhe assay office itself, either in ordinary currency,
or else by issuing cheques nu a local
bank for ih- full value of the gold
with one per cent uddid as the ieb:tte
allowed on nil gold upon which Ihe
royally has been paid in the imnh.
Regntding this matter the Vancouver Province of n rereul date says :
Mr. McCalfry, manager of lhe assay
office, was tills aft el-noon asked regarding the instructions said lo have been
issued in the despatch frnm the Ottawa correspondent of the Province.
He said that the news was correct, that
he had received a wire from Hon. Mr.
Sifton, minister of the interior, stating
that complete instructions would be
issued at once.
Mr. James A. Smiut. the deputy
minister of Ihe interior, who was here
lasl week, was distinctly in favor of
sueh an al'iangemvut to buy I lie gold
out and out from the miners, ami he
pinhalily made representations to that
elfeci at Ottawa.
Business men who were shown the
announcement to-day expressed them
selves as eminently satisfied wilh the
action of the government.
The establishment of a purchasing
agency heie will give Vancouver an
addilinnal advantage over Seattle, lt
will do away wiih a bank charge of
three quarters nf one per cent, whirh
lias been charged liy the banks for
handling lhe business of cashing what
arc known as us-ay office certificates.
In Vancouver, men In illging gold into
the olllce will Is- paid in cash or Ms direct equivalent. Vnucouv** will have
the advantage of allowing the miner
io retain this amount uf dhu mint, and
also ihe one percent rebate, making a
tolal sal ing to the miner of nearly two
per cent ol his money.
Arrangements have been made wiih
ihe Canadian Batik nf Commerce to
cash checks issiu d I y Manager McCaf-
fry of tlie Dominion assay olllce* at
Under ihis arrangement, a niinci
will take hi., gold lo Ihe Dominion
B8«ay ofHreut Vancouver, accompanied
hy aceitillcale from the gold cniuuiis-
sinner lha! the royalty thereon has
heen paid. While tlie gold is being
assayed he will Ih- given a receipt.
Alter it has heen assayed lit) lumens
the receipt and will receive therefor a
check which will give the net cash
amount to which he iseniilled. This
will he cashed in preseirailon lo the
Canadian Bank of Commerce.
Nn deduction will be nuule from this
cheek by the hank as all chaises from
the ginss value of the hacwfll he do
dueled hy the assay office hef. re issuing. In addition to the miner receiving Ihe face value of the cheek given
hy the Dominion goveiiimcni assay

toyalty paid on the -fold.
Between Cascade and Nelson.Wash,,
Old Line is aoo feet too far North.
Government surveyors at work hetween Nelson, Wash,, and Cascade,
B C.huve discovered the International
hoiindary line lies 200 feet north of
the location which the general public
has accepted as true, ln order to
make the boundary line clear the surveyors will remain In the Held at that
point fnr some time, and will continue
on th. entire work until the middle of
A peculiar situation has heen presented hetween the two lowns. It.
appears «hen the original boundary
was marked the government surveyors
cleared the trail and set their monument". A zigzag line was Ihe result.
After a little investigation it was disco veied ihe boundary line had heen
located 200 feet south of the real line.
Instead nf going back over the line
and clearing a new trail the original
locators measured ihe distance from
the firs; trail and set up new monuments 200 feet north of the trail.
These monuments were hidden among
the underbrush and timber so that Uie
traveller would not noi ice them. The
surveyors did not believe it necessary
to clear a new trail along the real
boundary and left their woik.
People going into the country near
the loiindary in eastern Washington
found ihe (rail and a numher of monuments set at proper distances. They
decided thut the stakes along Ihe trail
marked the real line, and have ever
since regarded it as the boundary.
The present surveying party found
the mistake had heen made, ahd upon
investigation teamed Ihe history.
A numher of complications have
arisen us a result of lhe hidden boundary Hue, Raihoad surveyors have endeavored to locate the boundary in
their own work, and have been confused hy the trail. It wus their request for a closer investigation lhat
wus responsible for the discovery of
Ihe mistake
It is staled that a number of important mines are located in the neighborhood of the line, though none of the
lergei* companies which are working
their properties are in the territory
lietween the lines. Some undeveloped
propi-rity is inside the United Slates,
whereas the owners believed it to lie
in Canada.
The boundary party is now working
near While's camp, not far from Nel-
The Stemwinder.
James Russell, president and managing director of the Fairview corporal ion, limited, has been successful In
the reorganization of Ihe concern hereafter to he known as the New Fairview
Corporation, limited. Speaking of the
progress being made in the reorganization of the concern, Mr. Russel says:
"We propose as rapidly as possihle
to dismantle the Tin Horn mill and
remove the same io the site now being
excavated near Ihe hcudworktugs of
lhe Stemwinder mine, This mill is of
16 stamp capacity, having eight batteries of Iwo stamps. The company
has ulso purchased Ihe Joe Dandy mill
of 10 stamps, which wiil also he taken
down and removed to the new site.
The work will take three months.
During lhe erection of lhe mill, work
at the Sl eiuwindei will he prosecuted
vigonaisly. The wesl di ift on the 300-
foot level is now in 101 feet, with a full
face of quart/., neither walls heing in
sight. The ore is avei aging consid-r-
ahly higher lhan on the second level.
Of 77 samples taken from the third
level the average gives $0.12, while the
ore on the second level only averaged
#1.11. We expect lo treat $4 rock and
make it pay, and with this end in view
we are practicing, and will continue lo
practice, the strictest economy in the
operation of hoth mine and mill. With
the showing we have iu Ihe mine the
direct ors believe that a large daily output, with a small margin of profit per
ton, should place the company on a
sound basis. If we find that with the

Some Interesting Information About
thc Use of the Bicycle-
Points to Riders.
This wrrld we live in has been materially changed since the advent of
the bicycle. Things are no', what they
were hefore it came along, glorious iti
its nickel plate brilliancy, its I ires filled
with air and its passage swift uml almost silent along nur streets?
What good has Ihe wheel wrought
anyway ? Homebody asks.
Well, in the Hist place, it is everywhere the disciple of good roads. It
is the voiceless but powerful advocate
which Incites people to the mending of
their ways. No lown likes to he left
out in the cold by the army of bicyclists. It is * sort of a boycott, on that
town's self-respect and importance.
And the authorities improve the
roads, and free them from ruts and
stones, and the old truck hoises, and
the humble pedestrians, as well as the
bicyclists, thank their stars for the
The wheel has, to a great extent,

institution known as the livery stable,
from whicli every Sunday the reckless
young blood hired some wretched old
beast, and lashed him through a day
of misery and pain. Now, that man
straddles his wheel, doubles himself up
like a hoop snake, drops his under jaw,
and "scorches" for all he is worth, und
il doesn't hurl anyone hut himself.
The wheel hus induced women to go
out of doors. It bus taught them that
fresh air and sunshine are not by any
means fatal to beauty and refinement.
It has freckled their fines, maybe, and
browned the whiteness of their swan-
like necks, bin it haa given ihem lungs,
and loosened their corsets strings so
lhat these lungs may have a chance to
Il has made them independent, and
taught them I hat a woman may depend on herself and still he womanly
and swcel. It has filled the life of
many a lined, dispirited housewife
with blue sky and sunshine and the
fragrant breath of summer winds.
Peopla who have never known lhe
country have seen it. in the grand glory
of its freshness and bloom—in the majesty of its autumnal tempests. They
have felt the inspiration of the forests,
and the uplifting nf its mountains.
They have watched the shadows of ti.e
white clouds in the clear waters of its
lakes, and listened to the music uf the
brooks singing ever nn their wny to
the s»a. They have got near to i he
heart of nature, which is ever kind und
loving lo those who come close enough
to feci ils warmth.
Then, the wheel has fostered habits
of economy. Men and women who
used tn spend their money on confer*
tionery and fancy clothing, save it up
lo huy wheels. Il may require considerable self-sacrifice, hut self-sacrifice is
good for everybody. No one thoroughly enjoys it, but lhe medicines which
benefit us are u ostly u litlle hitter.
Then, only think whal a wonderfully
prolific subject of conversation tin"
bicycle is. Why, the old hackney, xl
theme of the weather is nowhere beside it. The most bashful young man
in Ihe world can "make talk"about
the bicycle. There are, whole volumes
to be said almut it, and the half has
never yel been told.
We no longer hear the young girls,
when they get together, discussing
beans and new bonnets. The general
topic is "my wheel." The varied and
numberless advent ures and misadventures connected therewith, and the account of the hairbreadth escapes.while
on some momentous trip, are t ui.l with
interesl and listened to with pleasure.
The learner is f mil of recounting the
falls and bruises sustained, and there
seems lo be a sort of honoi iu haying
had a greal many of these casualties.
The pinfcssionnl listens, mildly sympathetic, nnd is lull of suggestions as
to how all these accidents might have
heen easily averted.
The women of maturer years meet
ut snnie sewing society, or club, and
they don't talk any more shout how
Mrs Sound Sn makes her pudding
sauce, or how Mrs. This and That fliits
wilh the grocer—their theme is "my
wheel," and perhaps the relative merils
nf divided skirts, knickerbockers, und,
whisper it low, bloomers.
Just so with the other sex. They
talk wheel everywhere and everlastingly.
The young man takes his "liest girl"
out to ride, and they go on their
wheels, The steady going old horse,
that could he safely driven with one
hand, is at a discount in these days of
progress. The wheel requires no hitch
rein, and it Is not liable to go lame or
develop a ting hone, or have the colic,
or the blind staggers, and it doesn't
have to he watered, and it dnein't eat
oats, nur wear blankets, and ynu don't

In London next year. The exhibit,
which will remain in Mr. A. K. Smart's
capable charge; is Hrsl to be placed on

Ihe nii-trop'ilis, a suit utile site having
he.-n selected, mid afterwards permanently transferred tu the Imperial In-
slltule, Tho exhibition in the city,
forthe two iiiuiillis proposed, dating
from January, 10(>2, will unquestionably prove un excellent advertisement
of nur mineral resources, und advantage might well be taken of Ihis occasion by ihe provincial government to
making n special effort in the direction
of cjil'ing at'ciition, hy the distribution
of literature nnd through the financial

that overtures lie made to tbe Federal

nt least, raise a woful howl, thu newspapers would raise a howl and the
provincial government, wilh or with

But because the process goes on day

developing Ihe South American group,
on the head waters of Kettle river,
comprising eight claims. Tliere are
two ledges on the property, one a five
foot ledge of free milling gold quartz,
ii.isaying $45, and the other one font
wide of solid arsenical iron ore, carrying good values in gold. The first
vein runs with the formation, which is
a slate and diorite. The ledge dips at
an angle of ahout .15 degrees and has
been traced through three claims.
They ground sluiced the lead and made
an open cut eight feet deep, Thenther

which has given gond returns. They
