Montreal, July 21.—One of thc biggest
mining deals of recent dale has jttst been
successfully negotiated by McQualg, Ry-
kert & Company, of this city, acting for
a syndicate of Toronto capitalists. The
deal Includes the famous North Star
property near Cranbrook, lt. C, and five
other properties iu the same group, v
the Buckhorn, Dread naught, Maverick,
Daffodil and O. K. mines. These properties have been owued for some years
hy a syndicate composed of D. D Mann.

260,000 shares have beeu bought by Mc*
Cjuaig, Rykert & Compmy, acting for
leading capitalists of Montreal and To

powdor showed up a well defined ledge,
which assays over $2 in gold, and the
owners will put in more work shortly.
A claim known us the Star has been
corded Ibis week in thd name of Oliver
Burge, our old townsman, now of Dun-
can Cily. Tliis claim adjoins the property on Perry creek now being developed
by the English company under the management of Mr. Yonge, ofthe Invicta.
The Koulenay and Algoma Oold Mining company has put men at work un
tbe claims in the Trail district, and
negotiations are in progress for a sale of
I ho**-' properties on such terms us to put
the company 111 possession of ample
funds for oilier work and the shareholders m iv expect 11 dividend before the

There is greal excitement at Wider-
mere nvm the Red Line The lead is III
Bight on )u.tli Bides of tbo mountain and
over the fuimmlt, giving a base of 451x1
feet in length with a depth of 1500.
Where the ledge has been cut across it is
2b leet lu width. With a width of 10
feet of ore running $[0, Mr. Mill ford, M.
ti., manager for Fraser it Chalmers, estimates thai Ihere is fjjo.uio.oooof ore in
sight malting the biggest known mine iu
the world, Mr. Farrell, M. ti,.. says that
if the ore carries only $25 In average
values it will be another Comstock.
John Hamilton and McCuIlongh are at
work on the Itiuuel on tbe Uelleview and
I,ock Out dninis on Palmer mountain.
This property will be one of the first to
be added to ihe list of shippers in this
district. The shnfi is down some eighty
reel and shows goud ore throughout.
The tunnel will stiike the ledge at a
much greater depth. Tbere are only
about Unity feet more to drive aud then
the Belleville will be practically a mine.
The success of this work and tbe prosecution ol work tinder difficulties are the
result of llie unliring faith and energy
of the well-known Hamilton "boys."
These are lhe sort of stuff that make a
mining cmnp a success,
Thomas Donnelly and Frank Decker
have just come down from tbe summit
of Weaver creek with some exceedingly
fine samples of auriferous quartz, They
have completed the assessment work on
the Helen Mary, and are confident they
have a good thing. There are two ledges
which meet ou the claim, making an
eight-foot ledge. About eighteen inches
of rich quartz shows on the ledge as far
as exposed by the two open cuts and the
tunnel. The latter is in ten feet, and it
is tlie intention of the owners to con*
tinue it as a permanent working tunnel.
Some of ilu- quaitz can be seen at tbe
offices of McVittie & Hutchison. Mr.
Donnelly owns also the Dewey and the
Victory, near .he Hamilton boys' claims
ou Palmer mountain. There are several
well-defined ledges on these claims
which aie reuinrkubly well situated for
tunnel work and show sufficient mineral
on tbe surface to warrant extensive development work.

Upper St. Marys River.
Mr Armstrong, the government Agent,
reports that there are n great number of
prospects being developed in a pcrnian
cul way in the upper St. Marys country
Many claim owners are not only doing
tbe necessary assessment, hut are push
ing development hi n businesslike way,
and report the showing of much fust-
class copper ore.
There can be no doubt tnat thc upper
St. Marys river will before long be one
of the biggest copper camp-i of the
Kootetiays A branch railway from the
North Star branch can easily lie built to
this camp, nud probably the location
line would in uo case be more I hau a
hundred yards from the present pack
trail. Such a railway Is undoubtedly a
matter of the near future, aud the tonnage which will be carriid over that
branch and from Kimberley camp will
make the North Star railway one of the
greatest ore carriers iu Kootenay.

The Chickamun Stone Will be a Mine,
Prospector: John A. I'ink went down
to tbe Chickamun Stone on Monday Inst
He says lhat witb the present force great
progress is being made. The tuunel is
now in 191 feet. Tbe future workings of
the mine will be conducted on an extensive scale, and no ore aside from that re
moved iu the course of development will
be taken out. In a short time another
tunnel 100 feet lower down the hill will
be started and nil shafts will be sunk nt
convenient intervals. Tbere seems lo be
no doubts in the minds of the owners
New C. V. R. Storehouse at Cranbrook.
h. O. Genes!, chief storekeeper for the
C. P. R.» (with headquarters at Winnipeg, and II. Nevln, storekeeper at Macleod, were in town last week. The
headquarters at Macleod. will be moved
to Cranbrook as soon as the buildings
here arc ready for occupancy.
The New School House.
While M. Mclnnes, one of the school
trustees, was in Winnipeg recently, he
saw the land department officials and
bad the deed for the school lots forwarded to the piovincial government.
It is quite probable, therefore, that in
due course uf lime work will be stalled
on the building.
Kimberley'* New Hotel.
Tom Wellman and Julius Hurel, ofthe
Royul hotel, have let a contract for their
new hotel hni'diiig at Kimberley. It
will be 5a by do feet, two stories high,
with a kitchen 20 by 30 feet. The
that tbe Chickamun Stone will be a I building will be finished In tbe best of
mine of more than ordinary merit. As style, nnd when completed and furnished
development goes on large areas of j will cost between $5000 nnd $6000, A
sloping ground will be made available   IJ Grant has the contract.
Those interested in tbe mineral production of this province will before very
long pay a great deal more attention to
the mines and prospects of Kast Koote-
nay than has heretofore fallen to the
share of that district, says the Rosslaud
Miner. For several years there have
been scattered through the vast extent
of that district many prospectors, and a'-
t hough the number of gold hunters bas
been far from sufficient to thoroughly
prospect the wide field, tbere efforts
have resulted in tbe partial opening up
of several remarkably rich camps, and
the discovery of a large number of promising prospects. Miuing men nre beginning to see a luture for this section of
tbe province, and many have entered it
iu search of 111 vestments. None of
them, so far, have beeu disappointed,
and a number of transactions of Importance have beeu recorded of lute,
Mr. A- K- Maedonald, wbo has returned to town after spending a mouth
iu the various camps of tbe district,
says a season of great activity has set in,
and h<s account of rectnt development
throughout Hast Kootenay is highly favorable, He gives the following information regarding the properties he visited:
In tbe Moyie camp there is a great
deal of activity, owing to the recent purchase of the I/ike Shore group by lhe
Canadian jGoldfields syndicate and the
acquisition uf a controlling interest iu
the St- Eugene by the Gooderham-
Hlacltsiock syndicate. The latter property is working somen ami development
is proceeding rapidly, while work ou the
tramway and the concentrator building
is well under way. The mill is being
built beside the Crows Nest railway
track, on tbe bake Shore ground, the
tramway being about a mile in length,
An nir compressor is ou its way lo the
Lake Shore mine, nud tbe installation of
concentrator is contemplated. In the
meantime three shifts of men are working and the smeller contract made by
the previous owners Is being completed.
The Moyie aud Queen of the Hills,
which lie between the bake Shore and
St. Kuhene, are not working at present
beiug under option. The Society Girl
which lies over the mountain, and is
supposed to have tbe St. Kugene lead,
has developed into a producer, having a
good deal of shipping ore on tbe dump,
and a large quantity blocked out iu the
mine. A wagon road has been construe-
ttd from the mine to the St. Kugene
road, aud the owner ofthe claim says he
will ship forthwith. The town of Moyie
is becoming quite a busy camp, and is
one of the very few towns in the Koote
nays tbat have not been built ahead of
the mines.
The best developed mines at present
tributary to Cranbrook are those ou
Mark and Sullivan creeks, where the
town of Kimberley is springing up. The
North Star, the first and greatest lode
mlue in Kast Kootenay, owned by Dau
Maun and William Mackenzie and tbeir
associates, is truly a wonderful property.
It was located in 1893 by J. Hourgeois 0!
Red mountain fame, and soon afterwards
bonded to Mann. R. O, Jennings was
placed in charge in December, 1S92, aud
immediately began tbe construction of Ja
sleigh road from tbe mine to the Koote
nay river, a distance of 34 miles. This
was completed in Febiuary, 1893, and
hoisting machinery and pumps were immediately installed. At this lime, although comparatively little work had
been done, there were several thousand
tons of ore in sight, the surface showing
of galena being 23 feet iu width. In
1895 a wagon road was constructed, and
a shipment of 6 j tons was made.
Freight aud treatment cost $42 a tou,
but smeller returns showed the ore to be
worth ffiS a ton and the owners were satisfied of the value of their properly.
Tbe depreciation of silver occasioned
the closing down of tbe mine, which resumed orerntions, however, wheu silver
took an upward turn, and shipped to fhe
Nelson, Trnil aud Great Falls smelters
er 7000 tons of galena, averaging $58 a
ton. Superintendent Kellogg, who is
remely conservative, gives the follow-
ingiigures: On the old vein, at the 30-
foot level, tbere is a 500-foot drift, 400
feet of which is in continuous ore. On
the 60-foot level there is n crosscut tunnel of 400 feet in length, witb 200 feet of
a drift, which is all on the same ore.
Higher up the mountain there is
another vein. A crosscut of 10.1 feet
from a 200-foot shaft has reached tbis
vein, on which work is now in progress.
The ore iu the second vein is of higher
grade galena, and carries values in gold
throughout, while tbe lower vein gives
only occasional values in the yellow
metal. As to the amount of ore In the
mine, Mr. Kellogg will not say further
than that the property can make regular
shipments of 50 or Go tons a day. Those
who may be supposed to know however,
say tbat thc ore body on tbe fust vein
bas a width of 90 feet, aud the ore already blocked out amount-- to over 40,-
000 tons. Such a showing would certainly justify the capitalization of the
proposed new company at $3,000,0-10,
which is tbe figure said to be fixed.   Ar-
rangemenls have been made to install a
20 drill compressor plant on the Stem-
winder, to provide power both for that
property, which te. also owned by Matin
and Mackenzie, aud the North Star.
The Stem winder, which is separated
from the North Star by the Dean group,
owned by Jennings and his partners, lies
on the steep side of lhe Mark creek canyon, and has the largest showing of solid
ore in Kast Kootenay. On the surface
lhe ledge appears to be 150 feet wide,
having ure entirely across. Near the
level of the creek, and in the middle of
the ledge, a tuunel has been driven 79
feet in solid arsenical iron. At the end
of the tunnel a ciosacut has been run a
distance of 86 feet to the lefl, and this
also is in solid ore for the whole distance.
These workings present a unique appearance, not a speck of anything but
ore being visible anywhere iu the tuunel
or crosscut or on the dump. The ore
averages $12 to £14 throughout, |[i ol
the value being in gold. As neither
wall has been reached the Slemwindei
may be considered an immense property.
On the opposite side of Mark creek is
situated the Sullivan group, which is re
garded as one of the best mines in tbe
district. It possesses a great ore body,
which has not as yet been fully defined,
The woik so fur done goes to show that
the ure shoot lies close to the surface,
aud is from 65 feet lo 125 feet wide and
500 feet long, wilh a depth of 45 feet to
70 feet. Il is 11 galeua of fine appearance,
carrying, iu the solid ore, values of $30
to ^45 iu silver and lead. There is also
considerable concentrating ore iu lhe
Development woik is in progress on
the Kimberley Consolidated, comprising
six claims on the line of the North Star
lead. Tbis property has a good surface
Tbere are about So miners working in
the Kimberley mlues, but thb nutnbei
will be largely Increased in view of the
shipping facilities to be afforded by tbe
branch railway from Cruubrook, which
it is expected will be completed within
three mouths.
In the Pyramid or Alkt basin, which
lies some ta miles west of Kimberley.
several promising copper properties are
under development, white a great deal
of prospecting and preliminary work is
under way in the big section of Kast
Kootenay known as the St. Marys district.
Between Kimberley and Cranbrook
lies the Luke creek camp, in which are
to be seen a number of big showings of
galena, and ou some claims strong copper ledges. Though the prospects iu
this vicinity have not been developed to
any great extent, there is no doubt this
will be au important camp wheu work
on a larger scale is commenced The
best showings are on the St. Mary's Carbonate, black Hills, Mammoth aud Martin groups.
Ou Boulder creek, a branch of the
famous Wild Horse, are located the Big
Chief aud Dupont gioups, which are
tributary to Fort Steele. The Big Chief
group has five distinct leads, ou all of
which mure or less work has been done,
resulting iu a big showing of free milling ore. The niaiu ledge shows from 12
to 30 feet wide, carrying values in every
part, while the narrow paystreak on the
hanging wall averages about $4000 in
gold, some assays running as high as
$11,000 to $13,000 in gold. There is also
a paystreak on the footwatl, and a crosscut from the working tunnel is being
run to cut it. The mine is owned by a
syndicate of eastern capitalists, with Mr.
K. J. Walsh as engineer in charge.
The Dupont group is being operated
for a syndicate of eastern men by C. F,
Hauniuglon. It possesses a unique
showing of free milling ore, and is a
proposition of the Treadwell type, with
this advantage, however, tbat values run
higher than in the big Alaska mine.
Tbe main ledge is apparently 260 feet
wide. Average assays across the ledge
for a distance of 4000 feet givo returns of
from $4.90 to $8, while the 60 foot "paystreak" iu the middle of the vein averages $18 to the ton. Stringers from four
to five feet wide running into the main
ledge, give assays as high as $800. AH
values are in free milling gold.
On Wild Horse creek, near the mouth
of Boulder creek, a Chinese syndicate is
engagid iu hydraulic placer miuing under lease, and are believed to be making
got d pay. A number of Chinamen are
also "snipinu" along thc old diggings,
working over old ground witb rockers,
and evidently make good wages. No
other actual placer miuing is in progress
on this creek, but there are miles of rich
ground awaiting the operations of the
companies which bold tbe leases. Several tunnels are being run to reach the
"old channel,'' which is believed to exist to tbe east of the present bed of the
stream, aud though some old-timers ridicule the notion there are many who hold
to tiie opinion that there is a pay channel below the point whore the coarse
gold played out, and persistent efforts
are being made to find It, Needless to
say, if such a channel is found millions
of dollars in pumpkiu-sced gold and
nuggets are to be looked for, arid the
men who are spending their money in
prospecting for the original bed of the
creek will secure a rich reward.
The Tontine group of four claims is
situated four miles south of the Big
Chief. It bas a 25-foot ledge that can be
traced for 3000 feet on the contact of the
porphyry and slate. The ore, which
consists of chalcopyrile arid copper
glance in quartz, is scattered through the
ledge, showing in places nearly four feet
of solid ore. The general run of tbe ore
concentrates five into one, and the concentrates carry 45 per cenl copper and
$8 lo $ iu iu gold and silver, In driving
a 50-foot tuunel considerable ore has
beeu taken out.
On Hull river, nnd a producer of placer
gold in the '6o's, there is a big porphyry
dyke carrying mineral along its entire
length, so fur as prospected, There are
probably   2u claims  located   along  the
dyke, but the greatest amount of development work lias been done on the
Chickamun Stone group, which is being
operated by J. II. Fink, a member ofthe
syndicate which owns the control. This
property has a very fine showing of high
grade ore, assaying from average samples between J30 aud **5u to the ton.
The values are in copper (appareutly
telrabedritel and silver, with some gold.
A good deal of work has beeu done, aud
there is a large amount of shipping ore
iu sight. The veiu is a contact. When
the lower tunnels are continued
aloug ihe ledge, the management expect
to huve sufficient Oie blocked out to enable them to make regular shipments
without interfering wiih the develop-
ment ot the property.
Ou Sand creek, which is also tributary
to Craubrook, there are several big shaw*
ings of copper ore, chief among which is
the ledge running through the Kmpire
claim and the KI Moro group. While
no great amount of woik has been done
on these claims, it cannot be doubted
that tbey will prove of considerable
value, as they have good values in cupper and gold across the ledge, which
shows 40 feet wide on tbe surface nnd is
traceable across three claims.
They Try to Injure  This Town
and Thc Herald.
Bd Small returned from Windermere
last week, where he has been for some
lime. He said be was surprised to find
Cranbrook still alive, and that The Herald whs stiil being published. Ou being
questioned M to what be meant, he said
that he had been told at Windermere
that Craubrook was about wiped off llie
face of tbe earth, that there wus to be no
railroad building here, that three merchants had quit business and that The
Herald had been closed up aud the paper
was no longer published. Such outrageous, contemptible, sneaking lies as
these aie not the result of accident.
Tbe details were too carefully prepared,
and the intent lo iriure is too manifest.
So one would lie guilty of such work except one consumed by jealously on account of the rapid progress made by
Cranbrook, The statement nbout the
road, lhe merchants and The Herald
shows this. There are a few men in
this district who hate The Herald and
Us editor like the devil hates holy
■vater: uot for personal reasons, however, but simply because Tbe Herald has
been one of the factors in the upbuilding
of Cranbrook, Such stories are on par
with tbe one so freely circulated last
year to the effect lhat no one could live
with safely in Cranbrook owiny to the
water here, which was a breeder of all
kiuds of diseases. The author of tbat
malicious fabrication is pretty well
known, and the author of this senseless
He will be as well known before many
weeks. The attempt to injure The Herald and the town of Cranbrook is so low,
so mean and so dirty that a yellow d< g
would sco:n tbe individual wbo would
resort to it. And what is more, it will
be a boomerang, for ihe position of
Cranbrook today as tbeBsupply point of
he district, with another railroad building, with the merchants all doing well,
with The Herald carrying more paid ads
than any paper in tte district, give lhe
lie direct to such idiotic mendacity, and
shows only too well the animus of the
scoundrel's work.
Another Case ol It.
R. E Beattie received a letter from
the Morris tobacco house at Victoria regarding the shipment of goods to Cranbrook, in which the statement was made
that as the C. P. k. agei.t at Cranbrook
had been rrmoved the freight would be
prepaid and charged in the bill. As
Cranbrook is the divisional point, thi-,
shows either deplorable ignorance on
the part of the Victoria firm or the work
of some maiicions slanderer Kilber is
bad enough.
Cut by s Knife In Jumping from a Buggy
to Stop ■ Team.
A. D. Grant, the contractor, met with
a peculiar and painful accident last Monday that came near proving fatal. He
had been out to Kimberley with Tom
Wellman looking over the ground for
the new hotel building he is going to
build there, and was reluming home.
Wellman was driving and Grant was
sitting witb a loug-b.aded knife in his
bund whittling a stick. Coming down
one ofthe hills on the other side of the
Mission one of the singletrees broke and
the horses started to run. Grant, ou
impluse of the moment, jumped to grab
ihe horses. When he struck the ground
he stumbled and fell. The knife which
he held was turned toward him and the
blade entered his right side, penetrating
stveral inches, Wellman brought him
as fares the hospital and telegraphed
for Dr. King, who went out immediately.
Mrs. Grant and Miss Klla Gratil also
hurried out as soon as they heard the
news. Mr. Grant's wound did not prove
as serious as was feared at first, and it is
thought that be will be around in a few
days. _	
A nent tbe Death of Brandt,
The Herald is in receipt of a letter
from one Frank Miller, of Sioux City,
Iowa, regarding the death of Harry
Brandt, wbo killed hismisticss and himself In this city a short time ago. The
letter tells of the upright life led by
Brandt while he lived in Sioux City, and
of a sister who lives there, the wife of a
prominent railroad official, Neither lhe
people of Cranbrook or The Herald are
sufficiently Interested iu thc demise of
Brandt to warrant the publication of a
long letter bearing upon his former virtues. Everything considered, ii is beat

The importance of the people of a district advertising lhat to the outside
world cannot be overestimated
A few days ago an eastern paper bad a
notice to the following effect: "There
aie fifteen shipping mines within fifteen
miles of  "(the blank   represents a
Smith Kast Kootenay town, but nol
Cranbrook). Of course, this was not
a true statement, but it showed that the
people of the town in question had been
advertising Iheir town, and tbe above
statement will find its way all over North
America and will be believed by reason
ot its appearance in print.
Although we recommend the people
of Cranbrook lo stick to tbe truth—because, goodness knows, the truth about
Cranbrook and South East Kootenay is
good enough—we would impress upon
ihem the importance of each and every
one of them doing their share ul bringing tbe lown nnd district before the people of the cast and the people of llie old
country. We would advise that they
speak of the district of South Eost
Kootenay. for the advancement of our
district means the advancement of our
town, Craubrook being the only logical
center ofthe district.
This matter of Individual advertising
is not hard to manage if each will do his
part. There are two simple methods
within the reach of everybody:
First, In writing letters to friends always speak of the district, tell of its
wonderful mineral resources, of the shipping mines, of the prospects lhat are by
degrees becoming mines, of the climate,
and so on. Tell i f the North Star and
Sullivan mines, of tbe St, Eugene and
Lake Shore, and of any mines nud prospects iu the district that you have
knowledge of. Tell of the neighboring
towns. Tell of Ferule, the great coal
tov n; of Moyie with its mines and bike;
of Fort Steele with its resources. Tell
of Kimberley, the North Star camp and
projective point of the North Star
branch, and other points in the dlsliict.
Tell of Cranbrook's position us the supply point for all these places, Show the
distances from Craubrook to such mining sections as Palmer Bar, Ferry creek,
the St. Marys aud so on. These distances will bear comparison with the
distances between these points and any
other town in Ihe district.
Second, send at least one copy of your
local paper to some one each week.
Don't send it each week to the same person, but first to this one and then to
that one.   ,
Ity these means the district will be
kept before the eyes of a vast number of
people. It is the cheapest kind of advertising and the very best, because one
contented settler in a district saying lie
is contented carries more weight than a
whole trunk full of advertising matter
from outsiders.

"Bob" Ingersolt, the noted agurs'.ir,
has [passed over to the beyond. Tlle
question of a hereafter is no longer a
mystery to him. As a man wilh his fellow men. and Ills family, he was an Ide 1
citizen; as au intellectual giant, he was a
power; and as an orator, wilh the ability
to garner simple words into garlands of
beauty, be was without a superior. And,
as a lighter against the Christian religion, the world bus never known a more
able or persistent one.
Who said Cranbrook was not all right
The building ofthe North Star branch
from Cranbrook tn Kimberley means ft
big boost ahead for both places.
The eight-hour law, like Bntiquo's
ghost, will uot down. It persists iu rising arid, harrowing the souls of the politicians. 	
The North Star branch is more material evidence of the fact that Cranbrook
is the natural business and supply center of this great disti ict.
Secretary of War Alger, of the United
States, has resigned, and Ihere is a growing conviction that he has been made
scapegoat ofthe ad minis I ration,
South East .Kootenay today has the
brightest prospectsof any district known,
The man who locates here lays the
foundation for future prosperity.
Premier Laurier has declined to tuke
tbe testimonial of $100,000 from his
friends. There are politicians iu tins
province who would not be governed by
such modesty.
The Herald has no railroad news "that
will thrill every citizen" of the district,
lt simply publishes the facts regarding
the building of tlle North Star branch
from Cranbrook to Kimberley.
The Herald extends the compliments
of the season to Brother Grace, ofthe
Fort Steele Prospector., and Messrs. Oal-
bralth, Shier, Harvey, Walt, et al., and
also au invitation lo visit Crnnbrook aud
see work progressing on the North Star
branch. _____

The "green ray," an optical phenomenon which has been made tlm foundation i;if a htory by Jules Verne, is a
Hash of greenish light seen as the limb
of the sun ri-e.i or sets under certain
condition-} of lhe atmosphere. Thu sea
horizon is good for observing it, but
the effect is occasionally seen in the Alps
or other mountains, rind, according to
Piotlley in a paper lo llm Acndeuiio des
.Sciences, Paris, it is oftcp to bo observed in Egypt from tlio point of Hie delta to Alexandria or Suez, either nt rise
or set of sun.
The ray is distinctly visible, and always of an emerald green, which is
brighter us a rule at sunrise than sunset At sunset, when thovyocuu follow
the eflcet bettor, the ray sometlmt a appears longernnd ultimately takes n blue
rinjie. This blue ray has nlso been observed preceding iho "green ray" at sunrise, for example, by Mr. William Gaff,
near the ruins uf Memphis, nit fnr from
the stepped pyramid of Saggnrnh: llo
even thinks tin* ancient Egyptians were
familiar with it. because in 'monuments

has the outer streak uf a bluo color and
the two inner strenka are'greeu. Their
writings also speak of the greenness of
lhe sun on rising, aud tbey liken it to
8n emerald.
Tt is evident from all this that tbo
"green ray" is nn objective, .not u subjective, phenomenon, and that the hori-
lonof the sea has nothing to do witli it
Nevertheless, tin* state nf tbe nttiioa-
pbere evidently lias to do with it. mul
that of Egypt, ordinal ily pure, seems to
have much, for the ray is seldom scon

A Singular Co'lncidcnt.
Lethbridge News; One of the singular
co-incidents which crop up in railway
circles wasti<. jenily noted at Medicine
Hat. When several years ngo llie C. P
R. purchased the Gr't line between
Medicine lint ami Lethbridge aud llie
guige was widened, tbe first standard
train over ihis pit M of work was pulled
by H. C. Cooper, engineer, and W. McF.
Evans was expr< *s agent and baggageman. When the road wns extended
from Lethbridge to Macleod these two
were on the first standard train over that
poition of road, and ftgaid, wben the
da'-y se. vice was inaugurated to Nelson
last mouth the same gentlemen were
again iu with the first train.

Cascade, B. C —J. \V. Stewart, superintendent of construction for Mann,
foley Bros. St Larson, contractors for
the construction of the Columbia St
Western railway branch, now being built
into tbe Boundary country, has just returned from the raillicd, where, with
tbe track-laying and bridge gangs, there
is the greatest scene of activity, All
winter aud summer long tbe contractors
have been bending every energy to complete the contract at the eailie.it possible moment, as the C. F. R., owners of
tbe line, were and are more than anxious
to secure tbe heavy tonnage of the district which is uow being handled by the
Spokane Falls St Northern via Bossburg.
This will soou be realized.
Two or three weeks ago the tracklayers were nt Gladstone, sixteeu and
one-half miles from Cascade by the surveyors' measurement!*. But between the
two places there were no less than
twenty bridges to be erected. Some
were small, but others were large, like
that crossing the Kettle river, just cast
of this cily, which is 1600 feet long anil
130 above the river, Progress from
Gladstone has, therefore, been slow on
this account. However, Porter Bros. St
McArthur, the bridge contractors, have
redoubled their efforts and nre nuking
good headway, Two shifts of men have
been put on, working nine hours each,
from the earliest streak of dnwu till
darkness precludes further labor. The
result is that today the trnck is laid to
within sight of Christina lake, near
English Point, and between six and
seven miles from Cascade by Ibe grade,
Rossland is suffering with an attack of
tin-horn sports,
Rossland's cily jail is cmnty, the first
time iu 22 mouths.
Nelson has disposed of $60,000 in 20-
ycar 5 per cent debentures at 107, the
best price yet obtained for municipal
bonds in the province.
The Kaslo St Lnido-Duncau railway
hove their right of way cleared between
Lardo nnd Duncan City, a distance of
twelve miles. The C. P. R. has four
miles of grading done in the same
