NO. 1. WESTBOUND EXPBESS
STOPPED NEAR MISSION
JUNCTION.
The  C.P.Ri   west-bound   transcontinental express, known as No. I
was  held up by three masked men
last Saturday night,  ut 6.30, a few
miles   west   of   Mission   Junction.
The train was lale and was travelling   at  rapid   speed   to make  up
time when engineer Scott was stir-
prised   by   a   masked   man,   who
pointing a gun at him commanded
him to stop tbe train.  The engineer
at the same time  noticed two other
armed  men  climbing  into the cab
from the tender.    Seeing, resistance
useless, he complied wilh lhe command and stopped the train.   While
one man  remained on  the locomotive  lo   guard   lhe   engineer,   the
other two  lock   the   fireman  and
made him cut  off Ihe mail and express car from  other  part of train.
Conductor  Ward  noticing that Ihe
train   had  stopped, looked out, but
was promptly told to keep inside or
be would be shot.   Heat once saw
that the train Was held up,   and the
btake.y was told to warn passengers
to hide their valuables,  while Ihe
other  brakeman   was  sent back to
Mission Junction to notify the operator  there  to  send  word to Vancouver for assistance.      As soon as
the  train  bad  been uncoupled lhe
engineer was  ordered  to draw llic
express car ahead a short distance.
Then    lie   and   the   fireman   were
forced to get off the engine and accompany the robbers to express car
under threat of  blowing thc car up
.  with dynamite,   when  expressman
Mitchell  opened  Ihe door and was
promptly  disarmed.    From the express   car   the   robbers secured  a
package containing $4,000 in gold
dust,   consigned to the U.S. Assay
Office  at  Seattle, another package
containing 62,000 in gold dust consigned to the bank of Hrilish North
America  at Vancouver, and about
$1,000   in currency.     They   next
visited   lhe   mail  car  and  secured
registered  mail  bags,  contents of
which   arc    at   present   unknown.
Having secured   thc booly lhe men
retired into hush and  slrtick   oft in
thc  direction ol'  Fraser river, their
intention evidently being to cross It
,and make lor Ihe American side.    .
After thc  robbers'  departure the
engineer  ran back lo lhe main portion of the train and coupled up and
proceeded lo Vancouver.    A special
'rain   was  made  up   there,  and  a
posse bf C.P.R:, city and provincial
police lefl in pursuit ol lhe robbers.
Passengers   vVcro   not   molested
and  nunc  ut'  lho  train   crew were
robbed of any personal effects,    li
is thought    ihe  robbers  imagined
lhat  the  clean   up of  Ihe Cariboo
Consolidated   Hydraulic   Company
would   be   on   lhe   train   as  they
seethed   surprised    at    the   small
amount of gold dual obtained.
The train crew slate lhat the robbers did liiiie talking. Fieni the
prompt manner it which they did
their work, they think the uffair
must have been carefully planned.
Prospects are being converted into
Shippers. High values are being
obtained from Trial Shipments.

ni
glass at Poplar has  been purchased
outright, and  the company  operating there  arc bent  on business ol
the right kind, last month's pay-roll
at this mine was  $1,2110.     lt must
be  remembered  lhat Poplar is but
fifteen  months   old,   and  that lhe
camp has had  lo buck up against
litigation,   claim-jumpers,   and   an
army of knockers. Poplar is alright,
and two years hence will be a great
city.    Of other properties-and mines
which have  recently added fame to
the Lardeau, and from whence local
enterprise  is  about  lo reap its reward, may be mentioned the Win-
slow, a free-milling property located
last fall which is yielding enormous
gold values and  improves wiiit development ; tho  Silver  Dollar,   on
which   a  fine  lead.- of steel galena
some  20  inches  in width was uncovered a  few  day:;  ago,   and  at
which   mine a ten-dliM compressor
has been"inslailed ;  the Mammoth,
where rich ore is being sacked  and
the  lead   is  improving  with every
shot ; the Jumbo  and Union Jack,
two wonderful concentrating proportions ;   thc    Rambler,    a   recent
rass-root  shipper;   the   Raven, a
properly   in   which   we   have  unbounded    confidence ;    the   Tonawanda, Equitable, and Mountaineer,
on   which  properlics we  lately reported rich strikes;   the Invincible,

conjSinuqusly developed by local men.
Td-jtlo justice to most of the last
named properties capital is required,
hut the outlook is exceedingly
bright. Ferguson will become lhe
most important mining town in the
province, because we have the mine
We are in for a prosperous time.
Throughout the world there has
been alistlesness in matters mining
for the past year. Several reasons
are given, lhe main cause being
the prolongation of hostilities in the
cast, and thc near approach of the
U.S. Presidential elections. Again,
rumors of a Dominion election fill
the air, and this tends to keep
capital dormant. Local enterprise
has not been found wanting during
the past few weeks, and syndicates
have been formed for the purpose
of obtaining leases and bonds on
many excellent shippers. This is a
very praiseworthy procedure, and
capitalists will find in it an opportunity to watch smelter returns.
Our unfair critics will also receive
an answer to their assertion lhat
we show a decided apathy to continue working at depth. Prospectors are not financiers, and locai
enterprise is filling the gap to no
small degree. Our large mines,
chiefly the Silver Cup, Nettie L,
Triune, Eva, Oyster Criterion, Goldfinch and Beatrice are being worked
Vvi.h financial success. The lormer
has now resumed all its old-time
activity ; the tramway which was
wrecked by the snowslide of early
|. spring has been repaired, and is
now running like clockwork ; the
Silver Cup with recent development
is showing up splendidly, and values
at depth are increasing, The Nettie
L and Silver Cup are yet in their in-
lancy, but still the output tosmellcr
for 1903 realized $1313,891.41, and
the recent heavy shipments of bullion from lhe same company's mill
derived from the treatment of low-
grade base ores, will have reached
high up six figures. With tho advent of capital, similar mills will be
constructed, and the illimitable low-
grade properties in the Lardeau will
11c yicklers, to the lasting benefit of
lhe country. Success is bound lo
come. A country such as ours will
stand any test ; even lack of capital
and troublesome litigation cannot
prevent its progress.
Better transports ion facilities
tire promised us, and in the interval
the primitive modes ol transport
will go merrily on, Tl,*; Old Gold|

A Smart Pieco of Engineering to
Supply Power for tho Silver
Cup Mill.
The scarcity 0!' rain this summer
has been a serious matter for mills
throughout the Kootenays, and in
several instances lhe drought has
necessitated the laying oil for a
time a large number of men. The
Silver Cup mill at Ferguson has
had ils troubles in this respect, and
the lack of water has been responsible for the mill not doing justice
to itself and the management. This
week a smart engineering feat has
been attempted, and every available
man from 5-Mile, Nettie L and
Silver Cup mines has been put on
lhe scheme. From the summit of
Nettie L to the mill at the loot is a
distance of a mile and a halt, and
the course of the creek whieh flows
due north past the Nettie L lower
tunnel has been altered to a southwesterly direction, and brought
down to the mill by a series of dams,
Humes and ditches. As we go lo
press we learn that although hardly
completed, the scheme is an assured
success.

Thc party are investigating traffic

Immediately upon arrival here thc

Tho August clean-up at the

Lid. resulted in a 86,500 brick.
Mr, Barney Crilley recently informed
us the main body ot ore now being
worked is exceptionally rich in gold,
and Mr. II. J. Baron, staff representative of the Mining Reporter,
who visited tho mill and mine recently, remarked that the quantity
of ore warranted thc installation ol
20 or 30 more stamps. About two
dozen men arc employed at the
mine under thc superintendence of
A. 1'. Garrett, whilst the milling
operations are in charge of A. G.
Street.
From the Silver Cup mill there
were shipped last Saturday seven
bars of gold and silver bullion to the
Trail refinery, This was the result
of a scratch clean-up.

FRIDAY,  SEPTEMBER 16, 19(4.
The report that the C.l'.R. westbound transcontinental express had
been held up came as a great surprise.
We had schooled ourselves to believe
that such an event was extremely unlikely. Canada holds a splendid record
in this respect, as but one instance is
known of a similar hold-up, that, oecti-
being twenty-live yoars a��0 whon a
passenger train running between Hamilton and Toronto wus boarded by bandit- who succeeded in getting away
���with 9100,000. It is passing strange
that the west, which Is supposed to be
muc i wilder, should compare so favor-
with the east. Our mounted police are
responsible in no small measure for tho
clean sheet of the west, and thoir
watchful eyes ever directed towards
the International boundary lino ba;
influenced for the common good by
keeping the undesirable element on
the other side. Train-robbing in
Canada will never become a popular
pastime with the thugs of America, as
scant courtesy is extended them when
run to earth. Their selection of .Mission junction which is but a few miles
from the boundary line, and their
modus operandi lead to the conclusion
that thoy are old hands at the game.
It is up to us to thank the Nelson
Dally News for the consistent manner
in whieh they stand by the Lardeau.
Scarcely a  day  passes but that, tiie

under ths heading " A Contemptible
Action " : An opposition newspaper In
tho Kootenay district recently resorted
to a contemptible course with a view to
prejudice Mr. Green, the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, with
tho people In that part of the province.
Using an Item that appeared In somo
of the Coast newspapers that a Mr.
Green (with different initials from
those of the Chief Commissioner) was
building a line residence In Vancouver,
the newspaper in question quoted the
item to the effect that Mr. R. P. Green
was building himself an $8,000 residence In Victoria, winding up with a
query aB to " where the money came

Green will feel only disgust at sueh

attempts to injure a political opponent
and expressing their opinion of a journalist who would resort to them.

A salvation lassie plus the poke bonnet and tho belle of New York expression struck this benighted burg on
Friday night. Old-timers looked on
the fair damsel in tbo red sweater with
amazement as she s-pi uug lightly from
the stage. Dud Dubay fell through his
overalls and Chummic Johnson sat
down on tho oold oold ground. Jim
Orahame gat a move towards tho summit, and Sandy Laughton put up the
shutters. Dave Morgan's cayooso just
looked and smiled. Charlis Little's
terrier hid under tho sidewalk, and
found a nail, The street was dosei-
ted until tho fair figure had vanished.
There was no big-drum-tamhourine arrangement forthcoming, aud it was

With Revelstoko, Nelson, and one or
two other points scrapping for the
wholesale trade of tho Lardeau, we are
wondering whero wo get ofT at. Our
local tradesmen are somewhat surprised that tlie wholesalers who have
this field to themselves do not expend
even tbo fringe of tho rake-off with tlVe
local advertising medium, Thc printer
Is a jolly good fellow, and all that sort
ot thing when he advises his readers
lo patronize western enterprise. The
wholesalers would have a very poor
show woro it not for the press and
its continued appeals to the loyalty of
of the peoplo. The advertising patronage bestowed upon the Lardeau | apers
in this respect would starve a mouse.
'Tis the simplest thing in tho world
for a western journal to carry fyg fal
ads. of eastern mail-order houses, but
tho average western journals too loyal
to local interests, and at tiie samo time
a heavy loBer in many respects. Kelson
and Revolstoke houses should tako
note that the Kagle is loyal, and an
ad. helps us to play tbe game straight
At tbo criminal court held at Camborne on Thursday of last week, Join
Madison, the Camborne barber, wa:
tried for alleged burglary committee
some weeks ago. Tho ovidenee was
Insu-tticlent to warrant a conviction
and Madison was discharged. Fred C
BlHott, barrister, of Trout Lake,
acted for tho defence. We understand
that Madison is opening up a barber
stand at tho Kva Hotel, Camborne.
Inventors and manufacturers ure frequently puzzled to know just how to
proceed to proteot their invention}., and
much valuable timo is lost in acquiring
information required. There is pro-
ably no profession in which technical
quOStlOHB are of such frequent occur*
renco as in puteut soliciting, and tbere
Is no Hold, of speculation In which
greater care should be exercised beforo
tleeiding upon a courso of action.
A valuable invention, whon properly
protected by Letters Patent, procured
by (jualilled technical experts, means
a fortune to its lucky owner, hut tbe
samo invention putented by unskilful
persons may be practically of no value
because of failure to properly protect
tlio essential features of novelty which
aro of most value.
Tho reason for patent monopoly; possibility of secret use of an invention:
nature and policy of patents; time
required to procure a patent nnd tlie
course and treatment of an application
in the patent office are Interestingly
discussed in a recent publication issued
by Messrs Marion & Marion, Patent
Solicitors of Montreal, and called
1 The Inventor's Adviser."
In addition to giving a summary of
tho law and practice relating to patent
matters, the book contains a large
number of court decisions relating to
patent law both in Canada, tbe United
States-and other countries, and much
interesting matter not to ho found elsewhere. Tho book is issued to answer
questions of frequent occurrence relating to patents and inventions, and
will be of great servico to manufacturers and inventors.
The price of tho book is ono dollar,
but we havo mado arrangements so
that our subscribers will be supplied
with copies at 25 cents each provided

Marion & Marion of Montreal for

i A stranger lately visiting 5-Mile

ger related of his visits to mills in

Australia and England, bnt ho hinted
that 5-Mile aud tbo latter placo wero

synonymous of the two.
