A Small One Now in Progress Owing to
Recent Important Strikes.
The B. A. C. Loses Six Valuable
Claims in This Promising:
It looks like another stampede will he
added to the history of Perry creek. The
recent great discoveries marie by Messrs.
Kllers and Monroe and the successful
termination of the long tunnel that tbe
Kootenay and Ferry Creek Mining Co.,
Limited, have been driving for monilis,
bas excited great interest among the
miners and prospectors in this region
who have heard of it, aud outfits are going in daily. Roy Campbell came down
from the creek Monday, whence he bad
been packing supplies for the above company and reports that he met several
prospecting outfits going In; each day
sees prospectors hastening iu either to do
assessment work or seek new discoveries.
It would seem possible that the source
of the fortunes taken out of Perry Creek
by the early-day placer miners hus beeu
discovered. If this proves to be correct
it meana the establishment of a large
aud rich gold camp, to which Cranbrook
la the doorway. There can be no doubt
now, in light of tbe result of the development work of the K. and P. C. Co.,
that large bodies of gold ore carrying
very satisfactory values exist on Perry
Townslte sad Stamp-Mill.
One or tha strongest evidences of the
satisfaction of tbe above company witb
the result of tbeir work is tbe fact that
they surveyed a townsite and a millsite
tbis week, and the reports are that a
stamp-mill ot large capacity will be
pounding out the yellow metal another
season. The sites for tbe town and mill
are about 2% miles from tbe company's
mines and eight miles above Old Town.
Among the crowds going in was Joe
Walsh, of Fort Steele, witb three men
to commence work on old locations. It
is safe to say that few, if auy locations
will go by default this year.
B. A. C. Co. Uses Valuable Properly.
During tbe latter part of Mny last Kngineer D. D. N Wilkie, representing the
great British American Corporation,owner of the Le Roi and other big mines in
West Kootenay, arrived in Cranbrook to
open the Hoskius group, which the compauy had purchased some months previously, and composed of the Perry, May-
tie, Manhattan, Boseman, Southern Girl.
Goldbug, Kttiuu, and Uot Fraction
claims. A- T. Pollett was foreman iu
charge, and it seems tbat tbe Intention
was to do sufficient work on two claims
to represent the eight, but in order to do
thia it was necessary to secure a permit
from tbe gold commissioner. Engineer
Wilkie, it is said, failed to attend to this
and when Foreman Pollett went to record assessment work for the group by
virtue of tbe labor expended on tbe two
claims the commissioner would not ac
cept it except as to the two claims on
which the work had been performed;
this left six claims—among them the
best of the group, it Is said—unrepresented aud subject to relocation upon
Ihe expiration of the time limit, which
occurred very recently. It Is unnecessary to add lhat tbe prospectors around
were not alow to take advantage of tbia
and the B. A, C. is now poorer by six
claims in a district which is liable to become one of the great gold camps of the
country. The Gold Bug, said to he the
'cracker-jack" of the group, was seemed by MikeCorrigan,

5,300,000 POUNDS OF ORE
For the Month of August™-2660 Tons From
the North Star and Sullivan.
The ore shipments—clean ore just as It comes from
the mines—Irom the North Star and Sullivan for the
month of August amounted to 5,320,000 pounds; 2660 tons
or 120 carloads. This is a slight decrease from last month
but will be largely increased next month as the Sullivan
is now using machine drills instead of hand. Adding
1000 tons of high-grade concentrates from the St. Eugene
at Moyie gives 4650 tons or 9,300,000 pounds of silver-
lead ore from three mines within 20 miles of Cranbrook,
much of which has been taken out simply in developing.
What other land can make a showing like this for
three years' work ?
to forward any suggestions tbey make to
the minister of mines. Tbe code in

great satisfaction where it is being nsed.
Mr. Turner will be glad to bear from all
the managers of mines iu tbe district if
they bave any suggestions to make in
connection with ihe mailer.

New Westminster Lacrosse Team Defeat tbe
Champions of Canada.
The world-famous Capital Lacrosse
team of Ottawa went down to defeat before the New Westminsters of British

Miner special.
The game was an exciting one throughout, being closely contested hy both
sides. When the British Columbia team
appeared upon the field they were given
an enthusiastic reception on account of
tbe wonderful record tbey have made
against the crack teams of tbe east.
Wben after 15 minutes hard, fast play,
the British Columbia team scored the
first game they were heartily cheered.
Twenty minutes later the ball was again

was too late, for wben time was called a
few moments later tbe score stood 4 to 1
in favor of New Westminster.
The Capitals this year won the championship of the world, so tbe British Columbia team can be heartily congratulated upon their victory.
A Truthful Coraraeat.
Moyie Leader: It Ib Bad, but it is a
fact nevertheless, that the business men
of towns take too little interest In their
boards of trade. This is not only true
the smaller towns, but the larger ones as
well, Only a short time ago on the regular meeting night the Nelson board was
compelled to adjourn for lack of a quotum. The members of tbe Cranbrook
and Fort Steele boards also seem to take
little interest In their work, and the
same can be also said of the members of
the Moyie board. Matters of Importance are continually arising In a lown
which should lie taken In hand and dealt
with by Its business men, Tbe most efficient and satisfactory way to do this is
to have a regularly organized board of
trade.    Business men should remember
tbat anything which affects the welfare
of a town affects them also to a greater
01 less extent, therefore they should be
on hand at all meetings and give these
matters their attention. It is to be hoped
tbat in future tbe people of Moyie will
give their board of trade more attention
than they have in the past.
He Is Favorably Impressed With the Mineral
Resources Adjoining Craabrook.
—. Lumley has but recently returned
from tbe Klondike country, and arriving
in ibis vicinity soon after, he became so
favorably impresred with the coun try-
as a mineral region that be bought an
interest in Mr. Bailey's recent discovery
neay Palmer bar, where they wilt commence development work soou. Mr.
Lumley says:
"The penuanence of Cranbrook is a--
sured. Its expansion is, of course, a
matter of time, but is as equally assured
as its permanency, inasmuch tbat it runs
parallel with the development of lhe
mineral wealth in the vast district of
which Craubrook is tbe centre. That
this latent mineral wealth exists tn deposits both rich and extensive is not
merely suppositional, for it is demonstrated beyond dispute by the work already doue upon locations in all directions, displaying as they do generally,
mineral richness which would hardly
be credited without u personal inspection.
"Tbe peculiar character of lhe 'edges
iu the district lend rather to discourage
investment than otherwise, tbe rule undoubtedly beiug little or ,110 surface values, and most meagre quart/ croppiugs.
Some residents of Craubrook, who ought
to have more practical knowledge, assert that ledges destitute of rich surface
values are as a rule worthless. Nothing
could be further from facts, as a few days
spent among tbe locations around tbe
district can testify. A case very much to
the point is the recent find of Mr. J. P,
Hailey, neat Swansea, and wilhin balf a
dozen chains of the track, for auy oneto
see. The fine body of high grade galena therein exposed showed neither values nor quartz upon the surface, and at
eight or ten feet below shows ore sufficient to command an Investment of $250
for an eighth share. This, of course, is
an exception, but in tbe same neighborhood may be seen copper lodes showing
values only a short distance down from
a mere trace upon Ibe top. When such
lodes are to be seen within a short distance of tbe track it may be reasonably-
assumed that many splendid mines only
await the assistance of capital iu the
vast country around us to contribute
their bidden treasure to the progress of
tbe district. Aud wheu capitalists begin
to recognize the fact, as assuredly they
soon will, tbat our ledges merely require
sinking upon to disclose their wealth, a
development of our mining industry will
ensue of a magnitude which will astonish the unreflective and confound the

days, but can get uo satisfaction; if I

me; they say they have got tbe goods
back; if I took tbem and sold them, or
disposed of tbem in any way, somebody
must be the looser, aud would certainly

To the brief announcement from Australia of tbe wreck of the steamer Tasmania with heavy loss of life, mui! advices from New Zealand udd stirring*
Wheu tbe Bteamer left Auckland on
July 88 she hud on board H5 saloon and
;._ steerage pusscngors, Including a
number booked through from Sydney
The place where tho vessel was tost is
off the extreme uorthuru polnl ot the
Mahal peninsula, between Olsbornu ami
Xnpler, where tlal rocks, nwiish at high
tide, extend seaward a mile from the
shore. In dirty weather and on n dark
night the sleamor, in charge of the
third officer, ran nearer Into lund ihnn
•wnn consistent with safety. The flip-
titin, aroused too lute, wus unable to
overt tlu* danger, and the vessel strm-k
even us thp order was given to bring
her heud oul to sea.
It U satisfactory to know tlmt all on
board, passengers and oruw, exhibited
courage and common sense. There was
no sign of panic, nnd ll wus apparently
with good Intent, though lu iippui-ent
bro-Vtido, thnt one tnun set himself to
pluy tha piano In order to keep up the
women's spirits* The boats were h*"'
mt quickly and tlu* trtinsfer, despite a
heavy sea, made without mueh difficulty. Two hours after striking the
steamer went down, bows first, and the
boats made ttlti best of their way tn
The loss of life occurred In landing.
The larger bunts, containing nearly all
the passengers, cntne through safely,
but the dingy, In which were eight men,
turned turtle iu the surf and two ofthe
occupants were drowned. Tin* chief
bteward's boat is also supposed to have
capsized, and it is toured thut Its occupants are drowned, Six bodies have
been washed ashore and the loss of life
altogether Is put ut 13, including two
men who perished In 1111 attempt to
An uld Maori saw the steward's boat
trying to effect a landing lit How Harbor In a veiy heavy surf. Tbey appeared to have ouly one our pull!ngat\d
A steer oar. The boat capsized iu the
surf, and every mail swum to the beach.
When tbey touched bottom, however,
tbey were mvepl back. Four hung to
the keel of the boat, but were washed
off. Mi-Nellie, wlm was the only seaman
in thi* carpenter's boat, acted very
bravely. When tbe others liecame exhausted he stuck to Ibe ours, and, single-handed, brought the dtugy within
two chains of the shore, when it capsized, and ha was dashed on lhe rocks
and killed. -San KraneisiKi Chronicle,

At. fires in the homes of the poor these
detachments of the patrol work just
us earnestly and conscientiously to save
property ns they would iu the expensively furnished mansions of the rich.
At tenement house (Ires they arc of
preflt service. First they aid in getting
the |«ople out; then, gathering the
goods together, the patrolmen protect
tbem from water with tarpaulin covers.
The majority of lliese fires break out In
the bnseiueuts or cellars; then, following thu air and Ilglll shafts lo the top
Hour, they spread, antl do thegrentcsl
damage in the upper stories. To extinguish these tires, the olher floors below have to be Hooded, nnd were it not
for the fire patrol iu many cftsefl the
poor families would  lose everything
they owned.
One of thc captains af the patrol remarked: "Why, il would do your hear I
gottti if yon could hear how profuse
these poor people are iu llielr thanks.
md the blessings they shower on us
when they find we've saved their things.
They go running around, wringing
iheir hnndsand crying; 'Everything's
lost! Everything's lostl' arid thon,
when the (lie is out, we lead them back
and show them their things, ns dry as a
chip under the covers, and- well, say-
then* isn't anything they wouldn't do
for us! Half the time they're not Insured, and it isn't onr business to protect people who are not; but we're nol
supposed to know everything and our
orders arc to protect property first and
llnd out whether it is Insured afterwards; and it is not mir fault if we save
the little all of a lot of poor creatures
who half the time haven't a change of
clothes to their bru-k. Vou bet, we gol
to work just as quick in a tenement
house fire us iu u big house on Fifth
avenue, uud we do the same work in
both places, no mutter whether it's for
ihe rich or Uie poor."—CharlesT, Hill,

Then* arc fishes comparatively common lhat it is allUO-Sl impossible lo keep
alive in captivity, or even lo make cop-

silver gar. This tish is found in considerable numbers in these waters in
summer; in southern waters it is common. It attains a length of two leet. is

In selecting the site foi tlu Grand
hotel in the CaUkllls, on the tup of
Fine Hill mountain, the owners evidently had in mind the vagaries of the
excise vote. It la not generally known
that the Clruml hotel slnndson the boundary llm- of Ulster and -Delaware counties, the boundary line passing utmost
through thc middle ol the hotel building. The hotel therefore lain tbe town-
.ship oi' siiumlnl-.cn. 1 later county, ami
in ih,- lowushlj) of MIddletown, I'clu-
wnre county. Should Rliuudukeii go
dry, the hotel bur conld u- moved to
MIddletown, and vice vewu. Advantage
bas been taken of ibis fuet by lhc ho*
tel oWltCra H> kt»Op down the assessment, sins Iho New York Hun.
Tbe assessors of Sliniuliikcii placed n
valuation on the property or $ao,U-D,
if thc hotel would remain in thai township.   This year thej  Liar rulscd the
hotel assessment to (30,0(10, und the
owners huve notified them tlmt it:.-y intend to remove the hotel 10 Delaware
county, whero the luseasmeiil will bu
made much lower bj Hie towu of MIddletown, The assessors uf f-Jlutudiilien
township are going to try to have a bill
passed by the next legislature 1 routing this hotel properly into 11 spt ia!
district, nnd giving to the stockholders
the privilege of vuting as lo v. here they
shall lu* nssushud or whether tbey bhull

"Tliemorulphiloaopherwlll find fresh
ground for a discussion of Ihe old subject of moral responsibility und jnslltl-

family thnt once lived in St,. Joseph,

ngo a farmer living In Utichiuinn county bonded himself without nny apparent cause, leaving a family of fivo
wms and four daughters. Three of
the SOUS nnd one daughter huve followed his example, Inn not until nearly ull of them had married and were
tho parents of children. One of the
children, a grandson of tlio original
suicide, killed himself n few dnys ago
In another state. Several members of
the family are still living in the city.

The former appears as ir Illuminated

tie aim out bluck, This somewhat singular twraugeinenl of things gives the organ ilu* appearunco of being ever on the

horses have both eyes constructed on
tlie watch eye plan, und it gives the animal a rather wild expression, when, in
point of fact, it mny be it very docile

The wall eye, nn llie other baud, ts n

It must not ho Inferred tbnt the eye
should bo entirely disregarded iu forming
an opinion as to tho character of n horse,
hut ii should bo remembered that its expression is materially Influenced by tho
altitude of the ear, an organ which is often lost sight of as far as being an Index
to the animal's character is concerned.
Onr experience iu judging horses has
led us to regard the ear with much care,
as Us altitude nnd movements Indicate
quito u variety of conditions. Horses
whose ears are ever restless without apparent cause are frequently ultra nervous
creatures, well worth watching, Again,
(lu- restless ear will sometimes point to
defective eyesight, which may be accompanied with partial ur total loss of vision,
while animals which throw them closely
hack upon the pull are often Inclined to
nip or bill*. Indeed this very attitude is
frequently a signal for combat,
On llie other hand, horses whose cars
nro kept nearly in ibe same position most
of the time are more Ihnn likely to he
dull, stupid creatures, if they are nol
totally deaf. Deafness in horses is not at
nil a common thing, though we occasionally meet with cases in whieh the animal's attention cannot be attracted by
The ear of the horse is not ouly a partial index to the animal's chnrncter as far
as vice nnd docility ate concerned, bin its
movements will at times sound the keynote of danger or warn us to be on the
alert. In tliis connection a somewhat ro-
nmrknble incident was related to the
writer a few years ago by one of tlie
Dnlon soldiers who escaped through thnt
famous hole In Libby prison, but was afterward retaken, The ofllcer who recaptured lhe mnn subsequently informed htm
that his proximity wns lirsi revealed by
lhe ears of bis (tbo officer's) charger.
Tho story, in brief, wni tliat the escaping soMior and a messmate were concealed in a wood. One night they wore closely pursued by n southern officer and his
men, and while stealing nwny from them
as cautiously as (bey could the crackling
of Iho dry leaves attracted the attention
of the captain's horse, which somewhat
suddenly and without apparent reason
pricked its ears nml seemed alarmed, The
officer, taking the bint, ordered bis troopers to surround tho spot, nnd by the
morning lie hnd the two fugitives closely
Another feature which is rrgnrded by
many ns nn Index to the character of n
horse is the eoloi of its coat, some believing that chestnuts or sorrels are likely to
he high strung, nervous creatures, while
gray horses often get the credit nf being
very docile, but our Investigation nlong
Ibis line has uot led us to believe thut
then' is any reliance whatever to be
placed In opinions formed upon such a
theory. It te also contended that color
has much to do with tbe comfort of the
nnlmnl when exposed to the sun's rays,
especially in lhe summer season, but observations bave not demonstrated the
truth of this BUpposltlon, ns it hus been
clearly shown time and again lhat dark
horses are nbb* to do just ns mueh work
without   showing   fatigue  as   those  of a
lighter color. This may be accounted for
by ibe fact ihnl the coal Is n nonconductor within certain limits, so that It probably makes little difference whnt color
