Charles Theis, one ofthe lending members of tbe Fort Sleele Mercantile company, ami also one of the shrewdest and
best money makers in the west, has been
in town several days this week. Mr.
Theis is rather hard of hearing, ami tu
this connection lhey lell a mighty good
story on him. An old acquaintance,
who had battled with hard lack for some
time, met bim on tbe streets of Spokane.
Raising his voice above the ordinary
tone, he said:
"How do you do, Mr. Theis? Can you
let me have $5?"
Theis, iu his characteristic manner,
placed his hand to his ear, nml replied:
"How's that ?"
The Mend, repenting that he bad
made bis request so small, thought be
would take advantage of tlie cin*uinstances, and asked in a louder tone:
"Can you let me have f iu this morning?"
"Great heavens t I wish I bad beard
yon tbe first time," answered Tbeis, and
reached for his pocketbook.

The country rock is a very dark igne-
is rock, very much broken and distorted. Tbe formation is as if the whole
hillside was one great slide from the
mountain and not in place. Yet through
these rocks there are several quart/ veins
which were probably true fissures. Two
sucll veins are exposed for a short distance, the first 11 to 15 inches wide, and
the second eight to ten inches, with
strike iN 24 degrees W. and dip 80 degrees to W. Quite n quantity of blue
cupper stoill appears on tbe quart*, but
■ itlle more, so far ns I could see. The
only woik lhat I could find done consisted of au open cut of some four or live

) feet. Situated near Palmer Bar,
hull a mile from the C, P. R. tote road.
There is here exposed in an open cut
iome six to eight feet deep, a small
pmttz lead three inches in width, cutting irregularly through sveuite in a
general S 60 degrees E direction. Just
In the cut there are signs of a local disturbance which has increased the size of
a fissure and 10 inches of calcite has
icen deposited or. tbe side of the quartz.
This, however, is very local. I could
find, in places, only a few patches of
:opper pyrites, while on tbe dump I saw
ii couple of pieces of rock, probably from
the lead, carrying a little galena.
Austin, et al, situated a mile or so from
tbe "Old Reservoir" ou Palmer mountain, at an elevation of 3,700 feet. The
country rock is composed or rather soft
shales and shaley sand stones, A tunnel has been run some 30 feet, entirely
in slide save for the last few feet, gaining a depth of about 15 feet. A broken
quartz ledge is here exposed, 12 to 24
inches wide. Both ledge and containing
rock are part of a large slide and tbe
-l-iartz was practically barren.
This claim is situated on the same
mountain at an elevation of 3,900 feet.
Tbe country rock is a dark, coarse-grained igneous rock. The tunnel on the
claim ts in 45 to 50 feet, of which three-
quarters is through broken slide rock of
which the crevices are filled with surface
wash.   The remaining 15 feet is iu the
country rock, hard and black, and showing absolutely nothing. There is a small
quartz vein wandering through tlu*
masses of the slide rock.

Pay Rail Grasp.
Made up of Pay Roll and Paymaster
mineral claims, both locations, and
ned by Vandecar, Lattin, Quain and
Smith, of Cranbrook aud Fort Steele.
Reached by a fair trail from Palmer Bar
a distance of some six miles. Development hau been practically confined to
tl.r Pay Roll. The general country rock
quartzite, but cutting this near the
creek is a syenite dyke, running about S
30 degrees ti. Th|s dyke is cut at right
angles by a quarts vein some five inches
wide, dipping S 30 degrees K at angle 65
degrees, and showing in au exposure on
the hillside. I could not discover that
it cut into tbe country rock after cross-
ing the dyke. Tbis small vein carries
some copper pyrites, aud a certaiu
amount of "leUurtde" appears to have
been take** out. Assays given me by
arums disinteresteil parties who have
had samples assayed gave values of from
$*» to U1" t<> the ton in gold on picked
samples. Free gold cau be found in the
quartz, ofteu visible to the naked eye.
As nothing more than surface exposure
bus beeu made and the permanence of
the vein has not been established, it is
an open question whether the lead can
lie profitably wurkvd.
Tbe nuarfcttcs, forming the country
nick, at au elevation of jtsoujfeet, dip N
23 degrees W at angle of 45 degrees. Al
ihe upper tunnel here tbere is a Urge
pocket of galena showing ou the surface
seemingly embedded in quaita. I could
not find any true walls tu indicate a vein
but the country rock was considerably
disturbed *ud broken in the vicinity of
, the deposit, probably accounting for
this. A tunnel about 20 feet long, and
nf irregular shape, had been run under
tins surface exposure, leaving the quartz
as a hanging wall, and consequently not
Kpostng much of the lead. Prom data
gained in litis tunnel, the owners started
a second tunnel some 22 feet lower down
the hill, with tbe intention of crosscutting tbe lead at lhat depth, but although
in some 34 feet they had failed to do so.
I was of the opinion that the tunnel was
being driven too far to the left and ad-
visul n turn of some 45 degrees to tbe
tight, where tbe lead ought to be met
with if it continued lo that depth,
There has, practically, beeu no mineral found except on tbe surface, aa uoted.
There the showing gave good grounds
for the hope that an extension might be
found v Ut-u development work had
further progressed.
[Further work on tbis properly has
brought them to the lead, which fulfills
the promise made iu tlu: surface show-
A Deal for Moylc Mines.
J. B. Hustings, of the War Bagle com
patiy,   has  recently  visited   tbe   .Movie
minesasa representative of Uie British
American company, but whs recalled by
the unfortunate accident at  the  War
Bagle, lt is understood that a big deal
is on for the purchase of the leading
properlies iu tbat section and lhat more
than one corporation is in the race. Referring to the deal, the Nelson Miner, iu
an interview with George A. Blgelow, of
Creston, says:
The St. Bngene ami Petet property is
owned by John A. Finch, Peter Ursi-n.
James Cronin atul White. It is upou
the St. Kugcne that the greatest amount
of development work has been done.
The price set by the OWUetS is said to be
$400,000 plus the value of the improvements  which   they have now in baud,
consisting oi a tramway, concentrator
anil ore bins, which one is estimated to
cost $85000 There is a laige quantity
of ore blocked out iu the St. Bugene,
which has an average value of from 50 to
60 ounces silver aud from 45 to 50 per
cent lead. James Cronin. manager of
the St. Eugene, says lhat by September
ist he will be putting 150 tons per day
through the concentrator, which will
ield an average profit of J30 per ton.
The Queen of the Hills and Moyie
properties are owned chiefly by E. P.
Davis, of Vancouver, and the price set
upon them is placed at 1200 000. The
lowest property on tbe ledge is tbe Lake
Shore, which is owned by Murphy end
others, the selling price nt which is said
to be $135,000 These figures Indicate
that the deal upon tbe several properties
would require something over $Slotcoo,

Charles and Tim Farrell have rettrrned
from Sullivan bill where they have been
doing assessment work on their claims.
Henry Thiry and Mel Adams have
quit M. Mclnnes &t Co. for the summer,
and gone to do assessment work on their
claims on tbe Wild Horse.
The Hamilton brothers have started
to work on tbe Bellevue group. Tbey
have a tunnel it. 157 feet, and will run
60 feet more, unless tbey strike the
ledge. That will give them a depth of
something over 100 feet.
The Sullivan company is gradually securing control o! other propeities on
Sullivan hill, by the formation of other
companies. It is understood ihat it has
secured a 15-day option from the Farrell
boys on two of their claims in that locality.
N. C. McKiustrey left yesterday (or
Spokane, He was taking some excellent looking samples of ore with him
from claims he is interested in 00 Sullivan bill. Among the lot were some
from the Big Dipper which created n
most favorable impression.
Frank P. Hogan. president of the Sit I'
livan Mining company, and C. If. Wolf,
secretary and treasurer, were in town
several days this week. They had paid
a visit to the company's (properties on
Sullivan bill, and were feeling very good
over the present showing. A shaft is
down over 120 feet, and there is increasing evidence of the richness ofthe ore,
and the extent of tbe body. Messrs.
Hogan and Wolf left yesterday for Spokane.
Charles Theis, of Spoknne, has purchased lhe Chickamon Stone on Bull
river of Johnson and RObgrsOfl, It was 11
cash proposition and the consideration
was large enough to satisfy Messrs.
Johnson and RobersOD. who retain a
large block of stock. Seven men will be
put to work at once, and the force increased as circumstances will permit.
The property is a copper and lead proposition, with a magnificent showing. In
the way of development there is a tunnel in 160 feet, and a shaft sunk 20 feet.
The Chickamon Stone promises to be
one of the best properties in the district,
aud will soon be classed with tbe shippers.

Tbe events so far tliis year show more
Conclusively than ever before tbat South
Bast Kootenny is destined to be one of
the grea'est mineral districts in Canada,
Tlie more development work that is
done, the better is the showing for mineral. The evidence is ample now to convince anyone that the mineral is here In
such quantities that capitalists need hesitate no longer to invest their money In
legitimate propositlors, And, what Is
more, men with money have come to
Ih is conclusion, and already ihls season
thousands of dollars have been invested
in mining within a few miles of Cruubrook. Asa result, there will be moie
development work in this district this
year than ever before. Ami South Bast
Kootenay bases her claims for future
p os per Ity on ihe result of work to be
done. The greater the development, the
gieaterwill be the showing of mineral,
and more positive the evidence that the
wealth of this distiict is virtually unliui
ited. No man need be afraid of South
Bast Kootenay. If he will wait his reward will be a rich one.
Cranbrook bs the center of railroad
operations in the construction of the
Crows Nest l'a's road, has Been greal
prosperity from her liicepllon. Hut the
uture Is far brighter than the past lias
ever been. Combined with the increased railroad business, will l»' the
commercial activity lhat will come a"
the outgrowth of mining development
uii over the territory tributary to this
town. Cranbrook is the center of business, of population, of the mining industry, and must naturally forge ahead with
the Jwonderful growth of the country
ll:it is bound lo come. The man who
would seek pastures anew, now that tbe
future of ibis town and district is as*
s.ired, lacks in tbat quality of judgment
that keeps so many men poor. There
will be unlimited opportunities to make
money in Ctaubrook, in Moyie, lu Fort
Steele, in Kimberley, in Wardner, in
Fernie, in any and all of the towns in
this dis' 'let, for the lime is coming when
they will all be larger and better towns
than tbey are now. South ti st Koott
nay is a winner.
The miners of the Slocan should uot
be too hasty, nor should the mine owners be too arbitrary. Tbe question ol
wages should be a mutual one. A strike
means great loss to miners and mint-
owners, as well as a deadly blow to the
whole district. Men who work in the
mines are entitled to good pay, and men
who put tbeir money in mining property,

was "Redgntint|ct,"

It must have been t-wg^or three hours,
for it was pnsl noon when I looked
at ray watch, threw tho smoldering
firebrnnds Into tho Brook and rose to
return to the hotel.

Certainly there wns nothing rnsh lu
thia resolve, or formidable in the undertaking, though a certain feebleness
resulting iroiuii recent ill turn nt Geneva should hnve warned mo against
tasking my strength too severely,
At any rate, at it I went, laughing
nt tlio easiness of the ttSCent lis I followed the broad footsteps of my predecessor. My calculation wns that I
should come out on the path nt n point
t:- in ino feet above my starting place.
Before 1 luul proceeded fnr, however,
tlif convenient trucks abruptly censed.

nothing but the gravelly bank, with

As I looked back. I wnn startled loob-i

the earth, with u sensation as of tippiug
over backwards.
The movement, slight aa it was, dislodged a clump of stones and sand,
whk-h went rolling aud plungiug down
at u great rule to the brook, the sound
of whose waters wus now hardly audible. No wonder the mun had given it
up! Should I go on, or literally back
down, as lie hud done'.'
My determination was stirred, und, al*
though I heartily wished Fred waa on
hand with bis sympathetic courage, I
resolved to complete what 1 hud begun.
lt wus tough work. Hands and knees
now—.md carefully placed every time,
at thut.
Onee 1 very nearly lust my balance
by the unexpected yielding of u largo
stone, which guvu way under my foot.
How fearfully loug it was before. I
beard it smite on the bowlders Below!
I knew if 1 slipped, or missed one step,
the impel us of n yard would scud tnc

There was no question now ns to the
course I must take. It was "Excelsior"
In sober earnest—only 1 didn't have the
inspiration of a maiden, wiih a tear In
her bright Blue eye, looking on.
Steeper and BtOOperl    I wus pnnting
heavily In the rarllled atmosphere, and
trembling rrom exhaustion, lt wus so
terribly lonely. Nothing but the dark
forms of the trees, the waste of iee and
snow, and now aud then a bird, winging its way silently over the gulf, until

loosened gravel of the steep bunk; they
would look upward with a shudder,and
search the harder, Pretty soon one of
tbem would lean over u crevice nmong
the bowlders, shrink back with a cry of
horror and Beckon to the others. All
this if i failed By one step!
Rut still I worked on laboriously,
often pntislng for giddiness or a, want
of breath, nnd digging with my flnger-
nnits little hollows in the hard bank
for my feet.
Once or twice, n long, tough-root of
grnss saved me, mid very soon, to my
joy, straggling Bushes, strong enough
to support n few pounds of weight,

from n vertical face of rock, und quivering from root lo tip as 1 drew myself
cautiously up.
I shall never forget the agony of the
moment when one of them cume out
entirely, uud let me full backward. For-
t unately its comrades were near enough
tc save me, though it. wus with rough
li unda,
To shorten the story. I climbed at Inst
out upon a small, level spot, which
proved to be the longed-for path.
Following it painfully up for a few
rods, I reached u little but, where 1
found a kind old French woman, who
refreshed me with food and drink,
helped to make my tattered clothes
presentable nnd held up her hands
after the demonstrative fashion of her

"Hud anyone ever ascended to the

"Jamais, monsieur; jamais, jamais!"
(Never, monsieur; never, never.)
And could she tell me the height
from the valley?
A thousand feet! Well, T hnd hnd
mountnln climbing enough for one day,
and nfter a visit to thc Cascade, which
wns close by, I hobbled down the easy
path aud back to the hotel, to read

declared he would not leave me behind

correct one. Its Importance is suggested iu a note of Instruction given byC'ol-

Under the Old tariff conl that exceeded 08 per cent, ol fixed carbon was rated

A now idea for tho tucked silk blouse
is the use of colored sill; in tho stitching. Palo green or bluo silk stitching
on the tucks of a white taffeta blouse
gives it a very novel appearance.
Ruches of mousselino do Koio in a
variety of palo colors, machine stitched
on the edges with silk to match, aro
one of the novelties in trimming. They
are very narrow, are box plaited aud
are very effective.

make one furious Thero Is always something wrong. Tho lines aro held Ioo tight
or loo slack, or thero is too much air in
the dress or too little, or tho boat Is drift
Ing too fast, in* shells aro not plentiful
enough, nr the dress is leaking, or tho faco

Tbe Boundary Dispute.
London, May 27.—Tbemoriiing papers
discuss tbe most prominent features of
the Anglo-American commission w iih
an apparent desire to pacify both Canada
aud tbe United States.
The Daily Chronicle says; "The
whole boundary dispute is small, but
there is much reason to fear tbat the
lumber quarrel is the cause of friction.
Hoth sides appear to be thinking of perpetual retaliation aud reprisals. Such a
state of things is full of evil. Tbe commission affords nn opportunity to give
and take. It is urgent that a settlement
should be effected. Should this fail and
should tbe Nicarngus arrangement fail
also, a very unpleasant relation might
ensue. A leturn to any unfriendly temper between the two branches of the
Anglo-Saxon race would be a disaster to
everyone, mid above all, lo Canada herself." 	
Still Hopeful lor a Sett lem en I.
London, May 26.—Tbe Washington
correspondent of the London Post says:
"I am informed lhat the statements rep
resented that slate departmeut ofliciuis
have reported the boundary dispute as
hopeless, ate absolutely untrue. The
administration has been exceeding annoyed by the statement, and hopes that
no credence will he given to newspnper
articles circulating the rumors. Hoth
President McKinley and Secretary Hay
hope thai SirJu'Win I'auncefole will return to Washington with such Instructions from Lord Salisbury as will insuie
the settlement of matters.
