Tbe Cariboo Minn.
Mr. J. R, Park, of Park & M~.
ton, Kamloopg, who jiut retniMd
from a visit to tlie Cariboo mines,
called at the Sentinel office and related what tie saw as follows:—
When he was at Barkerville he
visited the B. 0. Mining Oo't work*
on Louhee Creek, and there met Mr,
Crnib, one of the shareholders, who
took him over the workings. There
were about 20 men at work tunnelling and building. Tbe main shaft
of the mine is 7 feet 6 in, by 5 feet,
substantial^ timbered, lagged, and
posted—the timber being hewed
and placed in a workmanlike manner and very secure. At a depth of
120 feet there is a chamber cut out
the whole width of the ledge, showing a distance between wall defined
walls of 25 feet with a body of apparently first-class milling ore in
creasing in richness as it runs westward, or towards the direction of
what is known as the American
tunnel which it being run a distance
of 600 feet in order to lap the ledge,
which will then be 1,360 feet from
the present workings in Cariboo
shaft, It is the intention of the
company to run a level from that
point and make a connection with
the Cariboo works—thereby creating an air-chamber the whole distance of 1,360 feet; and, moreover,
in so doing a body of ore will be
developed that can be extracted at
little expense, and of sufficient
quantity to supply a SO-stamp mill
for the next 50 years without deeper sinking. The company,, has,,a
large quantity of machinery in
store; and with a few more modern
appliances they will havo a mill
capable of turning out gold to the
value of |45 to 50 per ton oe the
average of tha whole rack. The
superintendent is very sanguine as to
results; and he is a thorough matter
of his business, as is eriderited by
by the appearance of the works
nnder his charge. The Island
Mountain mines were next vitited,
where Mr. Walker, a shareholder of
the oompany, and Mr. Champion, superintendent of the workt, were met.
These workings are being pushed on
with much energy, and uie company
has now 622 feet of tunnelling whicli
exposes the ledge at different elevations, showing in every place a well-
defined ledge containing large quantities of mineral; and the rock already extracted is of free milling
quality. Upon examination of the
several tunnels Mr. Park was surprised to see how easily the ore
could be crushed. He could pulverise it with his fingers, and separate the sulpburets from the quarts
readily. The form of the particles,
as a rule, were squares varying from
fto} inch; and frequently came
large bodies of croppings containing
a great deal of oxide of iron carrying considerable quantities of free
gold. To satisfy Mr. Park's curiosity, Mr. Walker and Mr, Champ-
tion took some of the samples
which where brought from the
different places, and by the simple
aid of a common mortar pulverised
them; and after washing the
powdered ore in a horn, the gold was
freely visible to the naked eye. The
quality it 965 fine—1,000 being
chemically pure. The location of
this company's works is very
favorably and pleasantly situated
on the Jack of Clubs lake—a
sheet of water well-kdown to old
miners of the district. From the
mill-site to the apex of the hill is
about 800 feet The superintendent
stated that he intends to construct
a double tramway to convey tbe ore
from the tunnels tojtho mill, on the
principle that the full truck coming down will raise the empty one
up, The company have all the
necessary machinery on the ground
for the mill, and have a large force
of men framing and building; and
also placing the the machinery,
which they expect to have running
iu about six weeka One of the
chief shareholders of this mine is
Mr, -Dunlevy, of Soda Creek—well
known for his enterprise in that
part oi the country. As an ofliet
to the high wages paid to miners in
Cariboo district, there is a plentful
supply of timber of the useful kindt
for mining purposes. Mr. Mason
is also erecting a saw mill near Mr.
Ounlevy's mine, which, when finished will be an additional convenience
of much value tn the supply of
suitable timber and lumber.—JTmn-

Frenchmen are always ether very
happy or very ttiisehible. Just now
they are in the seventh heaven of
delight because of tho grand success of the mobilization experiment,
and thoy profess to fear no foe that
may meditate measuring swords
with them. "That tlie experiment
was a great success seems beyond
question. Everything, the despatches said, went off Without a
hitch. Of course the whole affair
was previously arranged, and every
officer and soldier had probably rehearsed his part until he could go
through it perfectly. A holiday
parade is something very different
from a forced reality in which one
can never foresee the obstacles that
may have to be overcome. But
even a successful review of a large
force is an important oyent, and
may be taken as a proof of efficient
training for the more serious responsibilities of war. Tbe Frenchmen
have reason to congratulate themselves, therefore, but there is nothing
in the event to justify the very extraordinary effusiveness of their
delight. The French army is undoubtedly in a state of considerable
efficiency, but modern conflicts are
of such a kind that no one can predict with safety what the result of
a campaign will be.  •

and able condemnation of public
wrong doing, no matter whether its
blows fall upon Grit or Tory. We
wish our Vancouver cotemporary
had a littla more of the Mail's independent spirit.

The Thistle seems to have become
ti very considerable thorn in the side
of New York yaoktsinen ond the
sporting fraternity. They have been
making desperate eft'orts to obtain
information respecting her model
and her racing qualities, but with
very little success. The builders of
the yacht refuse absolutely to give
any one the dimensions or design of
the craft, or to state the amount of
canvas she carries. Not long ago
a diver was employed to get under
the Thistle for the purpose of measuring her and ascertaining her
lines, and the result of his investigations has been made public; but
the owner of the yacht says that it
would be quite impossible for any
person to obtain an accurate idea of
the model from such observations.
It is quite certain that sporting people are afraid of the Thistle, because
the only thing known of ber is that
she is very fast, but just how fast
they cannot tell. She has been over
the course, but it is well known that
her commander did not permit her
to do her best, and there is really
very little upon which one could
form an intelligent opinion as to her
possible speed. With this quality
of impenetrable uncertainty surrounding it, the coming international yacht raco promises to be ono of
the most interesting and exciting
events of the season. Hitherto the
Americans have had no trouble in
keeping the challenge cup among
themselves, and in former races
there seemed to be a general feeling
of security. But the Thistle is a
mystery, and her movements are
watched with remarkable eagerness
by every one who takes an interest
in yacht racing. If she succeeds in
carrying away the cup, it may be
the beginning of a revolution in the
building of yachts.
We shall not weary our readers
by any lengthy, reply to tho column
of special pleading which appears
in the last issue of the Vancouver
Herald relating to disallowance.
Our cotemporary asks for proof that
the people of Manitoba were deceived with respect to the government's intention at last election.
The proof is to be found in the fact
that tho people themselves admitted
they had been deceived, and the
press jf Winnipeg some months ago
reproduced statements made by candidates and others supposed to be
in government confidence by meant
of which the deception was accomplished. But, our cotemporary
aaya, although the candidates and
their friends may have made statements to the effect that the disai
lowance policy would bo discontinued, the government could not be
held responsible, Well, who said it
could! We never held tho government responsible for this deception;
but we stated that pledged supporters of the government secured election by deceiving tbe electors with
respect to the government's intention, and that they do not represent
the feeling of their constituents in
the question of disallowance. Our
cotemporary is very much disturbed
because we quote the Toronto Mail
as an authority, and declares that
"it has gone baok upon all its previous record." There is a good deal
of truth in this, but is it necessarily
discreditable to the Mail, or a proof
of dishonesty! We think not.
Formerly the Mail was recognized
as the organ of the Conservative
party. It voluntarily surrendered
all the patronage anil other advantages implied in this relationship
and took an independent stand on
all publio quetjiont. If its opinions when released from party alliances conflict with the opinions it
proclaimed as a party organ, is it
not probable that the independent
opinion ii the honest opinion and
very muoh mora worthy of acceptance! There If'M proof that the
tfatft independence it' not the re-
tult of honest cSnviofion. Indeed
we have reason to believe that it is,
and we are free to confess our ad-

gentleman nsked, who is superintendent
of n ju-ospei-ous mine near Georgetown.
'■'We.l, you came from a great mine

[lb t p'.iiyod the sjioiriiiieii trick on Anna
liiekin'son when t'omnrodoro Uecntiir
was slibwihg her over the mountains,
[n ttr lirorgurown? Well, I'll tell you.
[To n .1 uliit* took tho St. Louis and Boston
[folks in .no I style, .and has made more
-.uiou.-y selling mines, which nobody has
over so u oi- hoard of, than any man in
western history. He Bold a mine in St.
Louis for i 11X1,1X10 that paid $24,000 dividends in tVi'o yenrs. He paid tho divid-
en-ls himself, nnd when he got tired of
;i ying thenl lie just quit, and I believe
rjhe owncis uf that mine havo been looking for it over since. I don't suppose old
lout himself knew where it was—or
cured either.
1 "He broke one family in Boston, Tom
Hid, nud got f nutl.ooo out of a .syndicate
nt the Hub that were the worst footed
lot of inouey bags thnt ever atr'uck Colorado. This syndicate, or it maybe only
t delegation of them, came west to Bee
ihe mine iu whioh they Had p*id their
money, and of which Tom gave them ail
recount ten times more glowing than the
Hook of iiovelations. when Tom got
ivor.l thnt thoy wero en route he was not
-run- ed iu tho least. He hired a big
bouse up in the mountains just beyond
'. eorgetown, some kind of a hotel, I think
it was, ami he got servants ami groceries
ind clirrirrpngno, and made all necessary
trnuijjumeiits to furnish first class enter-
iiinment. He mot them at Denver and
acorted them the rest ot the way. The
.Kirty woro tired, and they stood the en-
irrttiining for three or tour days; at the
■ml of that time they wanted to see their
■:'00,000 mine. Old Tom took them out
i piece and lip a bit, and pointing ton
row of stakes driven in the snow, snld:
'"There she is, gentlemen. Eight
hder them stakes, which I have had put
here by a BUrveyor, just over my stakes
ri the ground, is your mine. Yon can't
oo it now because the snow's on it, hut
vlion the snow goes she'll be all hunky,
,-id you can bet it's a bonanza,'
■That's all the Boston syndicate over
aw of their mine, which wu located on
iothit: Peak, I think. Those stakes in
lie snow cost them $300,000."
"Talking about snow investments,"
lid a mining expert who was in the
arty, "did you ever hear of the man who
nn a 200-foot tunnel into a snow bank?
io? Well, this man who wassomekindol
n engineer, and some Eastern people who
-ai bought a mine engaged him to run a

trough 200 feet ol mow and got paid for
, and when the snow melted and the
reenhorns went out to look' ior their

ud was skirmiehing down towards the
.isin ol the Missitsipi valley by way of

Then another story wet told about a
mug man who belonged to an Illlnoit
I'lidicnte that purchased a mino in some
rrt ol the mountains and came ont to
k nt it. This wat two summers ago.
iiurbody helped him to locate the claim,
id they found it under a man of mow.
."How can we got at it ?" he naked.
You can't got at it till themowmelte,"
as tho answer.
And when will the snow melt?", ""
"Don't know."
He waited all that summer, and the
,ow was still thore, when he packed his

>e following summer he tried it again,
it tlie snow was there still. Ho hasnot

AS HE HAD LIVED.
THE    GRAND    WIND-UP   OP   A
MIGHTY  HUNTER.
"The Great Spirit Gave Him Life and the
Great Spirit Took It Away."
Day has finally broken, and there is a
reddening of the" eastern sky. The faint
flushes deepen, the purple fades to gold,
tho gold turns to fire nnd the topmost
rim of the sun rises from tlio plain and
burnishes the crags and peaks of the
Powder Hlver Mountains ns if preparing
them for teihplesiof worship.
five'minutes la'er and a great continent is beamed upon bv tho full tun of a
glorious morning In Indian Summer,
You have seen a grand old horse—almost blind—almost ready to die from old
ago, rise from his grassy boil of a sum
liter morning? Tho morn seemed to p rt
new life into him. There is flro in iris
eyes ns hu flings hiB head about uud
snifla at the sunshine, and for the moment he is voung nnd strong again.
So on this morn, from his camp in tho
foot-hills, rises a grand old man, and, as
ho draws himself up to his full height
and faces tho glorious east, his eyes grow
bright, hia muscles quiver, and the
strength comes back to overy limb. But
it is not for long. The sun is scarcely a
foot abovo tho plain when the tall form
stops, the limbs begin to weaken, and
tho liro dies out of the eyes and is replaced by a dull stare.
It is the wreck of a man—a mighty
hunter and tighter. Theso plains and
mountains and vulleys have been his
home for a score of years. Face—chest—
limbs—evcry-where about him, are sears
of wounds dealt by savage or beast. The
going down of the sun has found him
alone; tlio dawn of day has found him
solitary. Break a man's heart and he
turns from the world and hates vice and
Virtue alike.
Ho is uid and his strength has waned.
Dentil hns been long in coining, but it has
drawn night at last, The'chill of death
drives some men back to the world, to
die with tender liunds about them.
Others defy thu grim monster to the last,
and they die tilone, unwept, iinr-urcd for.
'■It is my Inst dny on earth!" So Buys
the grnhd old mnn ns ho slowly turns on
his heel to look ubout him. The vision
thut could once discern ti moving bufl'nlo
half a score of miles awny cun now
scarcely nmke out tho ragged trees across
tbe little vnlley. The arms which could
have once lifted the most powerful
warrior high in air for a dash to death,
can now scarcely bring the rifle to an
aim. He has run his ruco and hit time
has come.
The sun climbs up and tip, and the day
bursts forth into full strength. The
mountains stand ont with such rugged-
noss und gruiidness as never before. The
valleys und hillsides nover held the sunshine ns to-dny. Nature is to give the
old man n grand funeral.
And the sun climbs higher, and it is
middny.
And how should he die—ono whose
suiiiiiioi-s and winters — whoso months
and years —have boon passed in the sunshine of tbe -sterile plnins—in tho shadows of tlm rugged mountains—with the
growl of the grizzly nnd the shout of the
red warrior iu his'ears? In Ihe di-nniasof
the stage men die ns they hnve lived;
why not in real life'.'
. Tbo old mnn is ready. Itlflc In hand—
bis grizzly locks half hidden by his fur
iruti— his strength coming back* as if he
hud boon born again, he seats himself
upon a groat rock and scans the winding
valley at his feet God gives him back
■ his tight once more, und no creeping
thing escapes his vision. To the right till
is well. To tho lelt—wait He hnlf rises
for a better look.
Enemies—warriors 1
Have they got the word thai; to-day is
the old man s last dny on earth, nnd are
they to sit in front nnd applaud as tho
curtain goes down ? It is well. That
long rifle has sent.moro than one warrior
to his death. That great frame, now so
rapidly wasting, bears the scar of bullet
and tomahawk and knife.
A dozen warriors—a war party bent on
rapine and murder—come galloping
swiftly up tho vnlley. Tho old lighter
grows young ill yeari as he wutches tlio
advance. The thrill of oxcitement brought
the bloxxf to his check—the whisper ot
danger strings evory nerve. Fata has
been kind to him; as ho has lived so shall
he die. Would you have tho hero of a
score of battles die in hit bed, alono and
unseen, or in front of his foes, lighting
gallantly to tho last, and his dentil up-
. pliiiidcd even by those who slow him ?
Ah! they have taught sight of him.
The gaunt figure outlined against the
sky is a familiar ono. It has been feared
for Its strength, hated for the destruction
it hat wrought. Escape Is cut off to the
right-to the left-in front. The background is rugged hillside, on which the
warriors are more at home than the
hunter. And so shouts ol defiance and
exultation fill the air us the warriors dismount and advance.
Make ready now I The drama of llfo is
near its dote. The life and strength
which excitement brought are beginning
to die away. Their shouts come faintly
to his ear; there is u blur before hi*
eyes: tho hands which hold the rifle
tremble with weakness. Death Is sweeping up from the valloy in Its wur plumes
—death Is creeping down from the hill-
sido with swift step but invisible form.
And now the shouts of the warriors nro
nearer and louder, and their rifles are
blazing death at tho hunter, and he tarns
his face to hoaven and pleads:
"A low lost socondB ol strength and
eight and I am ready to oo."
They are glvei him—hit eyes cloar—
his iorui grows erect—he is tho grand old
fighter onco more. Up comes the rlflo—
up-up-hls eye covers the sights—the
weapon is held as firm as a rock, and
whon the red flame leaps out a chief
flings up his arms and utters his death
cry.
Tho drama has ended and the curtain
has gone down. The warriors creep
nearer and nearer. They wonder nnd
are mystified. Thoy finally reach the
rock to And the old man lying dead, his
faco upturned to the sun, whose rising
will seo him no more. There Is no blood
—no wound. They gather about him
like children about a mystery, arid they
whisper to each other:
"It was not for us to slay hint. Tho
Grent Spirit gavo him his life, and the
Great Spirit took it away!"-.j7. Quad.

Westminster vs. Vakcouvek.—The
Westminster cricket club has challenged the Vancouver club to play a
match in this city on Saturday next,
and the challenge hat been accepted.
It would be well for our club to take
advantage of every possible chance for
practice between now nnd tho day of
tha match, as the Vancouver club is
in excellent practice, and many of the
eleven rank among the beat players in
the province. If Westminster expects
to win, muoh hard practice will be
necessary. 	
Veudek Creek Bridge.—Mr. J. 0.
Henderson informs us that the contract for Vedder Creek bridgo was let
some months ago nnd a great part of
the work had been done whon the
water swept the whole business away,
pile driver and all. The contractor
has been for sometime on a new bridgo.
If this is not completed in timo for the
exibition, arrangements have been
made to put on a scow ferry so that
no person need worry about not being
able to reach tlie fair. This explanation seems sufficient to meet the complaints we have received respecting
Vedder Creek Bridge.
Mm. Improvements.—The Royal
City Planing Mills have lately added
one of the Wilkins patent balance
gang taws to their mill in this oity.
The saws were put into successful
operation this morning, and gave entire satisfaction as to the manner in
which the lumber is turned out. The
gang saw has a capacity of 30,000 foet
Str day, while the circular saw for
oing the same work does uot cut 10,-
000 feet per day, which makes a very
great saving in time, besides which the
new machine turns out the lumber in
a muoh smoother condition than the
circular saw. A new engine has been
put in specially to run this additional
machinery.

A Crushing Reply.—A Delawaroan
moved to Ohio, aud was elected to the
Legislature there. A bill relative to
tho Penitentiary being before tlie
House he took occasion to compare
the penal system of his former State
to that of his adopted one, giving preference to the order of thing! to
whieh he had formerly beon accustom
ed. Among his arguments in favor of
the whipping-post ho aaid that the
same culprits were seldom wipped a
Becond time, the disgrace of tho punishment causing them to leave the
State and begin life anew elsewhore.
At thia point of the new member's
speech a voice from the opposite side
of the chamber called out: "Is that
the reason wo have tho gentleman
from Deleware among us!"—Harper't

half of tho association by Mr. W. R.
Austin and Mr. Wm. Turpin, respectively president and secretary of the

S. L. Coffin, Batavia, 111.: "Dear
Madam: At the regular monthly meeting of tho association this evening the
president and secretary were instructed
to convey to yourself and daughter an
expression of the deepest sympathy for
you in your great affliction. We
mourn the loss of an earnest member
of our association, one who wat actively
instrumental in its formation, who by
his manly Christian bearing did much
to aid in increasing its usefulness.
We will cherish his memory; and while
deeply lamenting his departure we
cannot help feeling that with him " to
depart was far better." May God
bless and comfort yon in your sorrow,
and may the hand of his Saviour sustain you in your pilgrimage here, and
lead you that when God in Hit infinite wisdom shall call you hence, you
may may be united with the dear one
who now awaits yon on the other
shore."

Could Still Speculating.
New York, Sept- 14.—A ipeoial
from Waihington thit morning says.
"Considerable curiosity haa been
awakened by the discovery that Jay
Gould is among a number of northern
speculators who have lately been taking advantage of aet of congress
1870. throwing opens landt in Southern states to public and private sale.
This form of speculation has taken the
shape of a big boom lately, Salei in
the state of Louisiana, for example,
during July laat, alone were equal to
the total sales in the same state for the
whole year of 1886, Gould has been
buying in Louisiana chiefly in Calca-
tien nnd Vornon parishes, hit investments amount to tome thirty thousand
ncres and he and a fow other in trustors
have taken possession between them
of from eighty to a hundred thousand
acres, comprising all the land that is
left in tome eight townships of Cal-
catien and nine of Vernon  parishes."

People who reside or sojourn in regions of country where fever and ague
