Texada Mines.
Valuable Mineral Propor ties Await-
i*cg tho Touch of Enterprise and
Capital��� Low Grade but Paying
Ore of Immense Quantities���
Gold, Silver, Copper, Lead and
Iron��� General Description and
Last week we published a sketch nf
Texada, leaving the question of its mines
for treatment in another article which is
now produced. Some years ago there
was considerable excitement of gold discoveries here, and a great rush. People
overflowed the Island, pried up stones,
peered into strange places, washed out
dirt wherever tbey found any, got disgusted and disappeared. Tbe fact is there
is no placer mining here. Cut into the
ruck in many places, and traces of the
precious metal can be seen with the naked eye, indeed, the rock near the surface
where soft, may be picked and scoured
in an oar pan. and ten dollars a week
made by an old miner. But as the ore is
low ��iade and contained in quart/, machinery is a necessity. A stamp mill here
would undoubtedly be a success, but thc
present owners are unable to make the
necessary outlay, and the mines await
thc touch of enterprise and capital before
yielding Up their riches.
It is said the Almighty never created
anything without a use and Texada is
evidently good for very little unless it
contain valuable ore, so it is fair to presume thnt such ore is here to be found.
In fact the
Limestone Quarries
at the north end of the island have been
worked for some years bv Vancouver par
ties. A kiln has for sometime been established here and is now being run with
success. The bme rock is abundant and
properly treated produces the best of
lime for which there appears to be a large
The P.uoet Sound Ikon Co.
own an extensive iron mine on thc
west side of the island, which however is
not being worked. Like a good many
odier establisnnients .they are awaiting
the action of President Cleaveland and
the Democratic Congress. Thc prospect
of tariff reform prevents present activity
The ore is high grade, very extensive and
requires, it is said, li tile or no flux in
smelting. A Mr. Raper and family reside in one of the company's buildings,
and look after the properly. Thc ore
when the works are in operation is let
down the side ofa mountain by arc endless iron chain which pulls one car up
while another goes down. It is expected
that another year will seethe works in
operation again,
A Coi'i-r.R Mine
is being worked on the east side nf the
is!; nd. We understand a n timber of Chinamen are employed under a white superintendent. It belongs to a Victoria company and a shaft is now being sunk.
There is another copper mine known as
Alpha, near a small swamp.belonging to
C. R. Miller, Harry Piercy and Wm-
Giieve, The ore has been assayed show
ing 19 percent copper and $12 worth of
silver per ten. The ledge shows a cut a*
Ivmt 30ft long ending in a 10ft tunnel.
The texada Gold and Silver Mining Co.
own some good mining property somewhat east ol the celebni'.ed 4 !^ mile mining ledge which assays 20 per cent copper, and t ** ounces per ton. It is a very
promising prospect.
T*t:.[  Georgian Mining Co.
Of Nanaimo have a few claims in the
middle of tl*c island, lately taken up
which have a show of gold, silver and
lead. The comoany announce that they
will commence developemem work next
John Campbell
has two claims down by the Pnget
Sound Iron Mine. Gold,silver and copper abound. 1 le Is doing work on these,
and the prospect is said to be good indeed.
The Treasure Bark
This is a fine properly belonging to
C. K. Miller and Hob Swan, about one
and one half miles wc.il of Miller's place
and within uoo yards of ihe beach, Two
open cuts and onc tunnel disclose a large
amount of ore which assays 2-; per cent
lead, 8 per cent copper besides $18 in
gold and $2.50 in silver to tbe ton.
Grieve, Piercy and Davis
have a number of good claims of jjold,
silver, and copper. Thc Northern Star
is near thc bench, west side, and tbe ore
is opened up bv a cut about 50ft long,
and ii feet between tbe walls, whicli
shows fino gold in coarse colors There
is a cabin here. On the northwest is the
"Tip Top''. On this is a substantial
cabin, and developemem work to ibe extern of $400. Adjoining this is the Surprise, on which there \*t a large cabin,
.$500 worth of work done', entitling to a
crown grant. On Joe Davis C reek, t line
fourths ofa mile west, arc the Texada
and thc Eliza June. Besides gold and
silver the two lasl contain antimony, and
C. R. Miller i:; supposed lo lie interested
in them. Considerable assessment work
has been done here. Next to the Sur
prise is the Copper King-very promising,
thc ownership of which is in seven different parties. They all contain free milling ore and the gold in them can be seen
witli the naked eye.
The Mineral Ledge
is perhaps the most important body of
ore on the island. It is onehalf mile east
ofthe Golden Slipper where C. R Miller
resides, on the summit of ihc mountain
ridge, down which a mule, however could
go with a load. Thc ledge is four and
one half miles long and from 75 to 150
feel wide and opened up here and there
so as 10 show a continuance of the main
body of ore. It is about one and a half
miles north west of Puget Sound Iron
.Mines to which a road could he easily
built, sufficient to transport ore. There
are 9 mines in the ledge, seven of which
including the Minerva and the Twin I'ms
belong to the Minerva Mining Co. of Na-
naimn, while the Hold Hug and thc Nigger Habytbelong to C. R. Miller. The
Minerva is the first from thc southeast
end, next is the Twin Brothers, and then
comes the Nigger Baby. Right between
the two last is a cut 40 feel long by an
average depth of 8ft. and 5ft wide. The
ledge is gold, silver and copper. Tbe
o'c taken from this cut assayed from So.*
40 to .$96 per tor. This was average ore,
not specially selected. There is also a
cut on the Nigger Baby claim about 20ft
long by 4 or 5 feet wide, and further up
on the same claim there is a cut running
right angles from the creek which bound-.
it nn the north side, 75 feel long with an
average dept of 8ft and being about 5ft
wide. The ore everywhere presents the
same genera! appearance, except that the
rock is a little firmer at this point. Thc
formation on the north side is of limestone, and on the south porphyry. The
rock at ihe hist mentioned when broken
showed chloride rf silver, without the
use of glass, At a depth of Sft the ore
averages from 3 to 15 ounces in silver,
and as greater depth is reached this is
expected to increase in amount. The
quantity ol ore is beyond calcuhuiop*���im
mense. In nur presences portion ofthe
nick near the surface t'*kcn fn m the
Nigger Baby, which is easily pulverized
was washed and scoured in an ordinary
ore pan, sftowtnga residua of gold- Ore
from the Gold Bug was also washed in
the pan showing simili.ar results.
A standing offer has been made of $10
000 each for 7 of the 9 claims on the
ledge, but the owners though poor,steadily refuse to sacrifice their property. Mr.
Miller says he has staid by it six years
doing more or less development work,
until the value of bis mines are apparent,
and as hmgas he can make at least $10
per week washing the ore in his pan he
will not dispose of his holdings for a song
He is qu'te right a d so are tie ohers
N'evcrless as none of them hnve the
means to put the in necessary machinery
anc1 turn the ore into bullion, it is to be
hoped that some capitalist will be attracted bv the golden wealth that here
lies awaiting development. There can
be no question from an examination of
the ore and the assays made that here is
a field that will amply pay for investment. The means nf communication
arc by water and therefore cheap. Tbe
grade of ore while low is rich enough for
treatment, and experience shows that the
best paying mines arc low grade ones.
They lasl. When capital once becomes
interested in the Texada mines, as sooner or later it will, the results if not as brilliant as some of the forecasts of East
Kootenay mines, will in thc end prove
more satisfactory.
[Thc above, it is understood does not
include all the mineral claims on the island, but is sufficient to fairly indicate
the importance and extent of the deposits
of gold, silver, lead and copper to be
found there.f

otn the Woodvtlle Independent
The    ludepandent     has    published     a
number   of   well   authenticated   cases   of
most remarkable cures by the use of T)r.
Williams' Pink Tills for l'ale People,
Many of these euros have occurred in
our own province, and all of them havo
heon vouched for hy newspapers of woll
known standing, whoso disinterestedness
leaves no room to doubt tho accuracy of
the statements made. Hut if anything
woro needed to convince the skeptical
among our readers (if any thero ho) and
bring iuto greater prominoneo the surpassing merit of thi.i wonderful life-giving remedy, il is found in tho fact that
the Independent has been ablo to give
iho parcloulars of several remarkable
cures in our own neighborhood, every
detail of which can ho easily verified l��v
any Interested in no doing. A short
timo ago wo gave the particulars of tho recovery of litilo (Joorge Veal, which haa attracted ao muoh notice and added to the
fame of Dr. Williams1 Piuk I'ills iu this locality. A few days ago this case was tilt
topic of conversation in one of our local
Btorea, when a gentleman present said he
know of a 0090 111 town oven more surprising. The Independent, alert for anything
lhat would Interest  ils  readers,   asked for
some further particulars, and was informed
that the person referred to was Mrs, JaillOS
LawBon,nn esteemed resilient of Wonilvillo,
who bad been utterly helpless for a time,
her recovery despaired of and who is now,
through the almost magical virtues of Dr,
Williams' I'ink Pills, recovered and able
lo lie about -mmi moro. A fow days
after this, meeting Mr. Lawson on the
street, The Independent inquired if it
were true, ua stated, that his wifo owed
her recovery to tho uso of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Ves, replied Mr. I.., and
not only my wifo but 1 was cured
hy thom also. It yon will call at the
houae you oan have tho full purtioulara if
you want thom. Mr. Lawson haa hem a
resident ut Wood villa for over twenty
years, and ia well known and highly respected by all. On nailing til hia house we found
both Mr. and Mrs. Lawaon at home, nnd
ipltto willing to give the desired Information. 'They aro an intelligent couple and
those acquainted wiih thom will havo no
hesitation iu giving implicit cnnlidenco In
their statements. Mr. Lawaon ataled that
he had been ailing for years, his appetite
failed; ho bocame weak and unahle to
work. He received niodical assistance, hni
found it of uo avail, and at Inst bo was. con
fined to the house wilh litllo prospect of
recovery as was thought. He bad read
of the wonderful cures ethVted by Dr. With
iaina' I'ink I'ills and determined to give
them a trial. Ho soon loiiud benefit from
thom and continuing their use entirely
recovered, and i�� now enjoying better health
than bo has previously dono for years and
is (mlto as able as formerly to do a day'.*
Mra. Lawson also told of her terrible
anlTerlngs. For threo years sho bad heon
unable til do housework, and for nine inoutha
was confined to bed, boing so helpless that
she had to he lifted like a child. She had
consulted iloctors in Toronto and taken their
prescriptions hut found no relief. Her
nervous system waa wholly unstrung and
she Buffered from disease of the spine. The
doctors told her it would ho necessary to
perforin an operation on hcrspine.otherwise
she could not get relief, Sho refused to
havo'.he operation pei formed, knowing that
il would make her a cripple for life, and she
considered thai condition na bad as bor then
state of -"tillering. At last alio began lho
use of Dr. Williams' I'ink Fills and had nol
heen taking them long when she found their
good ofToOta. She found herself getting
Stronger, and was ablo to leave her bed.
At first she had to use crutches, but continuing the use of Pink I'ills ahe was able
to throw away first one and then the other
of t ho crutches and is now not, only able to
walk freely, hut to all end to hor household
duties ns formerly. In fact she saya that,-he
is now atrnngor ihan she hns been for many
years. Herappetitohus returned, hor nerve
and spine troubles Have disappeared, and
she rejoices in Complete recovery which sho
attributes solely to the use of Dr. Williams'
I'ink Fills, ami which nhe recommends to
I hose troubled with nervous prostration,
diseases of the t-pine or general debility.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Lawson attribute their
recovery under Providence to tho use of
ibis marvellous medloine which has been
such a blessing in our land, and they ure
willing that all others ahould enjoy tho
knowledge of lheir wonderful virtue.
Dr. Williams' I'ink Fills arc a perfect
blood bnlhlor and nerve rcatorer, curing
such diseases as riienmat ism, neuralgia,
partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia, Nl.
Vitus1 dance, nervous headache, nervous
prostration and lho tired feeling therefrom,
the after ell'ects nf hi grippe, inilnenza and
nevcm colds, diseases depending on humors
iu tbe blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. Fink Fills givo a healthy glow
lo palo aud sallow complexions, and are a
spec'fio for the troubles peculiar to tho
female system, and in tho case of men thoy
effect a radical cure, in all cases arising
from mental worry, overwork or excesses
of any natuio.
Thoso Fills aro manufactured by the Dr.
Williams' Medicine Company, BroekvUlo,
Ont., and Schenectady, N. V., and am sold
only In boxes hearing tho firm's trade mark
and wrapper, at Mic a box, or six boxes for
S2 f>0. Boar in mind that Dr, Williams'
Fink Fills are never sold in bulk, or by lhe
dozen or hundred, and any dealer who offers
substitutes iu lids form is trying to dofraud
yon and should Is* avoided. Thc public are
also cautioned against nil other so-called
blood builders and nerve tonics no matter
what namo he given them. They aro all
Imitations whose makers hope to reap a
pecuniary advantage from ihe wonderful
reputation achieved hy Dr. Williama'Fink
Fills, Aak your denier for Dr. Williams'
I'ink Fills for Falo Peoplo nnd refuse all
Imitations and substitutes.
Dr. Williama'I'ink Pilla may he bad of
nil druggists or direct hy mail from the Dr.
Williams' Medicine Oompany from either
address. The prlco at which theso pills
are sold makes a cnurse of treatment comparatively Inexpensive ns compared with
other remedies or medical treatment.

How He Uot Hia Start-
"I got my atari in a ipieer way," remarked a man of evident wealth, ns thii drummer finished his story.
"How was that!" onqulrod the drummer.
Twnnty-fivo years ago," continued lhe
successful citizen, "1 was travelling wilh a
side-show, and the business went to pieces,
leaving ine ita creditor for wages to lhe
amount of $100. Mv share of ihe Block-In-
trade was nn anaconda about IS feet long,
and as big around as my body. It wa-u'l
fat though, 1 think, for air was ahoul the
only thing it had to live on for several
weeks before the failure. I took the snake
and started for St. Louis, where I proposed
to exhibit it.
"I had him in a box iu the baggao>car,
and Bomehow be got out and started
through the train on ail-exploring expedition. .liiKt as he was crossing the platforms
of the aecond and third coaches lhe couplings came loose, and there's no telling
what wonld havo Itappoued, for we were
goiug up a heavy mountain grade, if lho
snake hadn't twisted himaolf around lhe
brake-rods and railing, and bung nu. It
was a big strain on him, hut he stuck (o it,
and Finn lawyer if ha didn't hold that
train together for two miles, and no doubt
saved the lives of all tho passengers in lhe
roar coaches. They thought so, anyhow,
nnd made me up the purse of J500."
The drummer coughed.
"What, became of the anaconda t ho enquired casually.
"Ho gave me my start,' replied lho narrator. "Vou see, tho $800 wasn't a drop
in the bucket; but when wo got tho snake
loose the strain on him had stretched him
out UO feet longer, and I went into St.
Louis wilh a snake thai no other exhibitor
could hold a candle to, and if you don't
believe me 1 can ahow you that snake stuffed and bung up in my hall at Denver,"
The drummer got up with tho air ofa
man who was uneasy.
"Vou ought to sell it fora holograph
pole," ho aaid, reproachfully, and then
went nut.

The Fall Exhibition.
The first annual exhibition of the Co.
mo.v Agricultural and Industrial Association will take place on Thursday, the 28th
of September. The prize list which will
be found on nur third page is a liberal
one for .1 country district, und it is hoped
there will be found among our farmers,
their wives, and others interested, enough
home pride in the productions, and in
the grand ctipabilltes of this district to
ensure lheir enthusiastic support of an en
lerprise which is well calculated to draw
favorable attention to this region, and
largely advertise what ever we have to.
dispose of In addition this to it will enable us to see as nothing else will what
our neighbors are doing, and to compare
results, and learn from the experience of
others. It will stimulate, too, a proper
-.pint of emulation, and lead to better
methods, which of course will result in
������reiiter profits. It will bring our people
together, breaking down separation walls
which have grown up through the years
of rugged pioneer life.
Let every one help, be it ever so little.
There will be ground for criticism, iher-i
always is, but be generous enough to
overlook it and assist in making the exhibition as much of a success as possible. If you'have not become a member
call on the Secretary who will be glad to
receive your name and membership fee;
if you are a member and have not sent in
your membership fee, hand it in lo the
Secretary or any of the Directors who
will receipt for it and report. Uegin preparing for the exhibit at once. If any information is required not furnished on
our third page,write to the Secretary who
will furnish it.
Let us make our first annua! exhibition
a fair index of what we have and are capable of producing, and we shall all have
reason to be proud of it.
The Breeding Stock Act.
An examination of the Breeding Stock
���Vi shows that Part 1 of which section 6
allows bulls to run at large except between the first of April and the 20th of
June of each year, only applies to that
portion of thc mainland of the province
which is situated north and east of the
Cascade Range of Mountains. On the
other hand sec. 15 of Part 11 which docs
not applv to that portion ofthe province
east and north of the Cascade Range,
but docs apply to all the rest of the prov*
i n<e, im poses a penalty not less than five
dollars nor more than twenty-five dollars,
l��i be recovered in a summary way be-
fore any Justice ol the Peace where any
owner of any stallion, jackass, bull, boar,
or ram shall allow thc same to run at
The legislature last winter amended
the Breeding Stock Act by providing
thai it shall be lawful for anv Provincial
police officer or constable to arrest and
detain any such animal running at large,
and to exercise all the power and authority with respect to such animal set forth
in ici'iion 17 and 18 of lhe Act.
It is seldom thnt any but scrub stock
js allowed to run at large, and steps
should be taken in all cases to enforce
the law and prevent this.
Wide Tires.
The attention of farmers is called to
thc Wide Tire Act of last winter. It provides that after the first day of January,
1894, it shall be unlawful for any wagon
01 vehicle carrying a load of more than
2000 pounds weight avoirdupois to be
drawn or driven on any of thc public
highways of that portion of the Province
west of thc Cascade Range, unless thc
tires of such waggon or vehicle shall be
at least four inches in width.
As severe penalties arc imposed for
thc violation of the provisions of this
Act it would be well if farmers and teamsters would make their arrangements in
time to comply with this law so as to entail upon themselves no unnecessary ex-
pence or trouble.
There were about  l,000,000, tons of
coal mined on this island last year.

R. Graham, Propr.
This town is located in the
midst ofthe largest agricultural
settlement on Vancouver Island. It is within six miles of
Union Mines affording the farmers of the valley the very
best home market, and is situated on the only highway-
leading from the settlement to
the mines. The lumber interests of this section are most ex
tensive, and are an important
factor in our progress.
The per cent of improvements of this town during the
present year is greater than
any other place the Coast
can boast of, and the march of
improvement is still onward.
The prosperity of the town
has for its foundations, therefore large mineral, agricultural,
and timber recources. It may
also be added that no section
furnishes a better field for the
sportsman. Fish and game
are always abundant and our
hotels of the best.
