Tbe Perry Creek district, which is only
few miles from Cranbrook, is conceded
North Star Mining Co. ) to be one ofthe richest districts in East
Kootenay, nml this season tbere will lie
a vast amount of development work
done tbere. The provincial mineralogist
Mr. William Fleet Robinson, visited
ibis district List July and writes as follows in his annual report:
Big Horn and Buck Horn.
These are locations on tbe upper or
)ci-foot ledge, aud have been developed
by a shaft 14 feet iu depth. Owners,
Watson and Usher, of Fort Sleele.
Tbey are the only claims showing any
development on tbe upper ledge, ami

This group consists or Ihe Danker,
Cashier, Apex and Teller mineral locations, owned by T. J. Moffat, of Butte,
Mont., and George Watson, Fort Steele.
These locations are all on tbe "Big
Ledge," which is easily traced through
tbe four claims. Very little work has
been done on ihem beyond a a few shots
put in on a large surface exposure. An
average sample taken across the face al
tbe [surface is said to have assayed $2
in gold.
Rock of Ages Mineral Claim.
This claim lies to the north of the
Moffat JC-roup on the "Big Ledge," and
is owned by T. H. Fenwick, of Fort

has been done.

Steele; the two latter ol Stevens and
Hatty, Fort Steele. These are all locations stilt farther to the north on the
"Big Ledge:" and h-tve each beeu de
vH0pt.1l hy short tunuels or shafts of
some 15 feet, aud give "colors" in the
pan at the surface. Assays hnve been
obtained from the quartz as high as $io,
but uo work haft been done to show what
the average assay would be.
Tbe British*American corporation hold
some -..■veil claims, the Perry, May-bee,
Eva, Southern Girl, Gold Hug- Bozeinan
and Manhattan, located on the lower
series of ledges, on each of which a couple of years'assessment work has been
done. AH show go.d. I am told, not In
great quantities, yet stilt more or less
Shakespea re Mineral Claim.
Owners, I.niil Banks, et al., Fort
Steele. On this properly both tbe "Big
Ledge" and the 8-toot ledge show up,
the former, here 40 feet wide, being accompanied by a "porphyry" some 200
feet wide, as indicated by small pits.
Assays irom solid quartz are reported to
have given values of some $8 in gold,
the porphyry, near the quartz, giving
J id. My own sample aud assay from a
pit sunk 10 feet deep near the.'contact
gave $6 in gold across ta face of five feet,
while across the face ofthe exposure, on
the the S-foot ledge, my assay gave $4 in
gold lo the ton.
Red Mountain Group.
This group consists of two claims
owned by Sherwood, et nl, located to
tbe north of the Sliakespeare, and also
covering both ledges. The work has
been done chiefly on the lower ledge,
where a crosscut tunnel has been run in
about ao feet to the left. The ledge
bere seems to be much crushed and
broken at this depth. The dirt, when
tested by me by panning, proved vero irregular, some pans giving very good
colors, and othor* none whatever.
There is also a small pit sunk on the outcrop of thu ledge to a depth of four or
five feet.
At the request of one of the owners I
sampled, ist., The dump from the lower
tunnel, which, on assay gave mc only a
trace of gold; 2nd., Loose dirt from the
upper cut; assay, fiio, 3rd., A sample of
pure white quart/ supposed to carry free
gol', not visible; assay, no values. I am
satisfied frum assays and general indications that the gold is with the iron sulphides, and am confirmed in my opinion
as to the inaccuracy of individual small
samples in such a propositioi. On the
dump from the tnuuel I found some ?o
tons of ore in which gold was visible to
the eye, but usually near the "iron."
Elk Horn and Pearl Mineral Claims.
These are two claims on the same series of ledges, on the southeast aide of
the creek, just above the "old shaft,"
held by "The Perth Syndicate," On
the former are two shafts respectively
25 and 10 feet deep, on a 5-foot ledge,
while on tbe latter there are two openings of 25 and 10 feet on a ledge over 12
feet in width. I liave been unable to
ascertain the values obtained.
Running Wolf is a location owned hy
J. If. Harvey, of Fort Steele, on the
same ledge ns the Elk Horn, aud has
two open cuts, each of 10 feet.
N. V. Jewelry Shop Mineral Claim.
Steele, und located on Cte creek about
three miles above "Old Town." A tunnel has been run from tbe creel: bottom into a bluff of trilw.se schists and
quartzltes for about Oo feet, from the
end of which drifts were sc*. off some 20
feet on each side. No vein was to be
seen in lhe tunnel, while In tlie drifts
there were a few quartz stringers carrying no values. I was unable to see why
tbe tunnel had been driven, but was told
lhat Rood gold values were obtained in
the schists at the creek, possibly washed
into the crevices by the stream,
Mill Teats.
Recognising the futility of trusting to
small samples, and that a satisfactory
test ofthe various properties could only
be determined by a practical test, J. 1..
Hardnittu, mining engineer, oCMontreal,
bad a small stamp mill erected during
1S97, at the mouth of Saw Mill creek,
Ior the purpose of making mill tests of
the ore from the various properties he
had under bond. The mill is a small
5*atnmp battery, so constructed as to be
easily portable, manufactured lu Novia
Scotia, and is driven by a small Upright
ngine supplied with steam from a vertical water-tube boiler. It is provided
ith the usual amalgamating plates, etc ,
for the collection of auy "free gold,"
and is, as a whole, a very complete and
11-coiistructed little plant. This mill
was set up under the roof oi the old saw
Test runs were made on ore from several of lhe claims on the creel;, iu luls of
five lo leu tons each. The results obtained were not commercially satisfactory, for, notwithstanding the fact that
some gold was saved, in no instance
were the values obtained sufficiently
high to warrant serious work ou the
claims, The tesls, however, do not
seem to have satisfied the claim owners,
as the results obtained did not tally wiih
their private assays. I henrd several
complaints about the mailer, regret being expressed that the running of the
mill had been left to inexperienced men,
and the values allowed to escape in the
tailings. Of this I kuow nothing further
than was told mc by men who might be
considered "Interested parties."
It was, of course, impossible for mc to
form any opinion as to bow the mill bud
been run, except by testing the tailings,
which I did in the presence of a well
known engineer and mill man, Mr. Farrell, of San Francisco, who likewise
made several independent tests lor his
own in for mat ion. The tailings from the
mill had run down to the creek bottom,
some 100 feet, over gravel, and had been
subjected to a winter's suow and rain. I
panned the mixed gravel and tailings
over all of this distance, and iu each pan
f found I could save, besides the iron sulphides to be expected, a globule of mercury as large as the head of a match, uud
a string of amalgam in the bottom of tlie
pan from a quarter to half an inch long.
On driving off the mercury on a hot iron
I found I bad a very fair sized particle of
gold. I collected some of the mercury
aud amalgam, which I turned over to
the provincial assayer, wbo reports to
me that the mercury carries over 2 per
cent of gold, while the "black sand"
contains $20.00 iu gold and a trace iu silver. Samples which I took of tbe tailings gave me an assay as high as J4 ou in
As tbe result of my investigation, I am
satisfied that the mill did not save such
free gold as may have been in tbe ores,
and that the tests made were not conclusive as to values of these properties.
I am further satisfied that only a portion
of the gold is "free," and that some
method of concentration would have to
be adopted to save lhe gold occurring in
the iron sulphides. 1
The mode of occurrences aud the great
strength and permanency of the ledges
on Perry creek, taken in connection with
the fact that gold occurs in all of them,
makes this creek well worth lhe attention of a strong prospecting company, as
the work is of such a character as to be
too expensive for the present holders of
the niHJority of the claims.
Since the Stamp Ulill tests were made
public a great majority of the claims
have been allowed to lapse, ami the remaining claim owners seem inclined to
listen lo any proposition which will enable them to prove up their claims iu a
practical way.
Orphan Boy and Orphan Qlrl Mineral Claims
These are two locations made on the
mountain about two miles to the southeast of "Old Town," at un elevation of
3800 feet. The country rock is composed
of schists and quarl/.ites, iu the strata of
which are several quartz lends from 12 to
15 inches wide, 011 which a couple of jo-
foot pits have been sunk, showing a
slight mineralization but not of£wuch
promise. While situated on Perry creek
these leads are not in uny way connected
with thc main ledges of the creek.

Hut, as no other celebration was announced, a number of the citizens got
together yesterday about 11 o'clock,
raised 11 fund of over $100, and at 1:30
met and prepared a program for the
day. Considering the fact that all arrangements were made in less than an
hour before the program was opened,

At the end of the first half of the third
inning the score stood 17 to 15 in favor
of tbe railway boys. The town boys

Other Evens.
The most exciting and enjoyable event
was the 300 yard dash horse race, in
wnich seven Indians participated. There
were three heats, and two were captured
by a horse owned by A. Bale, a fine-
looking bay. Abraham took second
money with a grey, and Barroot third
with a sorrell.
The open foot race, too yards, attracted a great deal of attention. There
were seven Indians entered, and William
Tierney. For fifty yards Tierney led the
crowd, but at that stage his wind left
him, and so did the Indians, Andre
Paul took first money aud Ignatius second. Some of the ladies suggested on
the side lhat they hoped the money
would be used by the Iudians to buy
clothes for the next race.
The 150 yards boys' handicap race was
a pleasing feature and attracted a great
deal of attention. There were fourteen
entries. John McNeal took first, Ilert
Vandccar second, and Claude McNeal
The bicycle race resulted in a victory
for Frank Burns, with Ilert Vandtcar
second and McConnell third.
Auother event that was eagerly watch}
ed by many who had never seen anything of the kind belore was the Indians
wrestling on horseback. There were
four entries. Tbey wrestled two by two
and llig Euslice and Big Pierre won out.
Then the two victors contested for the
first prize, and Big Pierre won after a
hard battle.

From the ntunorous hunting episode

most part, uno-pplorod country ln thi
eastern part of the African continent.
It. is a wild placo, wild In the nature ot
Its formation and in the nature of Its in
habitants, besides being giron up to a
largo extent to wild btivsts.
Thi-* latter feature of tho country jnst
suited .Mr. and Mrs. Alan Gardner, and
they penetrated Into ihu Interior, klllitiR

dolly for lions.
One morning lhey tamo rotors the
tracks of an animal that they knew at
onco oould 1st none but the king of beasts.
All the morning anil part of the afternoon ihey fallowed tho trail through thc
densest of African forests until at lusi
the odor of decaying flesh,  poisoning the
warm, bright day, apprised them that
the linn lair was near, A deep growl
camo threateningly from tho hush nearby, and Mrs. Gardner shot In tho direction of the sound.
Thn answer was i. terrific roar that
crashed through the forest in company
with the noise of the rifle.
Next. Instant there caine flying through
tho nir n huge lion, with eyes nhlune,
claws outspread and snarling jaws.
It was a situation to paralyze the
nerves of a strong man, but Mrs. (lard
ner never flinched or wavered. In toWn-i
the story afterward, Mr. Gardner snid:
"My first Impulse wus to shoot at. the
big brute, but ii quick glance at my wife

tide of loyalty ol GiriUei Britain, which
has not even yet reached its liij,h wnter
mark. When the tjuecu cifmts to the
throne In 1 S/,7 Canada was in Incipient
insurrection. Today there is no more
loyal part of the empire thnn our own
Dominion. Uow was this change at-
rived at f Freedom, is the answer,
The colonies, that is Canada, Australia,
South Africa, the West Indies and New
Zealand were conceded the right of governing themselves In their own way,
The words "Anglo Saxon" may he freely translated by tbe one word—freedom.
The reign of Queen Victoria will be
banded down to history as a glorious example of what freedom can do.
The empire, during the reign, bus
been added to iu territory in all four
quarters of the globe In India we have
80,000 square miles, a space larger than
Great Britain; In the west of Asia 21x1,.
coo.square miles, a region larger than
Germany; in "Africa, 1,000,000 square
miles, or about half the extent of European Russia. Today tlie British possessions iu North Auu-ticn and Australia
comprise one-ninth of all the dry surface
ofthe earth.
During the Queen's reign the population of Canada has increased from one
million to nearly six millions, the population of Australia frum one hundred
and seventy-five thorsaud to lour and
a half million.
During Victoria's reign Great Britain
has .ent forth nine and a half millions
of-pouls to populate the four comers of
the earth, and in passing it may be remarked that one-half of this number
found shelter under the Stars antl Stripes
of'our cousins to tbe .south; but they
have all taken with them, whether lo
British colonies or to the great Augl
Saxon republic, the kindly English
speech, the principles of English liberty
and the respect for our English law.
This much, aud much more has been
done for Anglo Saxon civilization during
our Queen's reigu.
Of thc Queen herself, much might
said, but in the words of an American,
Col. Walker, of the Honorable A1 tiller
company of Boston, "Hor womanlinei

President .Ionian has jnst returned
from ito- Prlbyluff Islands with the
news tlmt the revenue cutter tlui ti has
ii gnraiod the scheme. The branding
is effected hy means of an electrical device, which is both convenient am) effective. Dr. .Ionian says, in regard to
this branding process, that it is perfectly feasible to brand seals, and thai

preparation for market, all the longer

seals can nlso be branded without injury, but they are not SO easily handled.
It has been assorted that handling the

them off to some other island, but there
appears to ho no foundation for the

When the schooner Golden Sheaf arrived at her moorings one day lately

rushed frantically ashore as though
pursued by some unseen enemy. As

Record, the vessel was literally swarming with hordes of hungry Jamaica
ants." The little pests had invaded the
lookers and dived headlong into the
sugar barrels. After finishing the contents of these they proceeded to bore
holes through tho supply of hardtack,
and nte everything boforo them, until
it was feared that the stock of provisions on hoard would run short. Then-
was n cessation from their attacks the
other day, the vessel having been caught
in a West India hurricane, which Hooded the cabin and drenched everything
below. It, was supposed that the Intruders had nil been drowned,bot after
the storm had cleared away lhey hogan
thoir attacks with renewed energy,
Capt. Chandler, who commands the vessel, slated that there are millions of
