" The now Bteamer J. D. Farrotl, ou hoi* d<
trip, struck a rock in Uie canyon, stove a bop
lu her side nnd wnsBUuk in water that reachei
the cabin deek,   jus*,   below the cunyon,   III

rocks, a big hole broken In one Bide near the
stern, ono half of hur-wheel crushed away and:
tbe muddy Kootonay flowing through her
cabin. No lives were lost, and a portion of the
cargo of ore wus saved.
"Thc Farrell has met with numerous accidents from tlio start, but nothing of 11 serious
nature until this time. The wind, which wus
sweeping lilto a hurricane through the canyon,
field the bout oyer to tho rock where she
sfruok. When Captain McCormack found she
was sinking he headed her through the canyon under full Btoam and reached the rocks in
tlraetobeaeb her in water shallow enough to
permit nil on board to escape. It was an exciting iimoon board, and ns tho water raised on
tlie boat, everyone had to reach the Upper deck
to save themselves.
"Everything possible will be done to raise
the boat, but the river is rapidly rising at thlfc
time and it is feared tlmt the current and drill
wood together will carry away the upper part
of ihe boat beforo anything can bo done.
"The boat bad made eight trips and was
doing a splendid business whon the accident
occurred, she had just boon completed tliis
spring and cost about fl5,QO0. and was owned
by J. D. Farrell, Captain McCormack and

Thc directors of the Bald Mountain
Intend to prosecute further development
work on their properties near Donald as
soon aa tlio snow disappears. Moro
tunnelling will lie done.
Mr. Wlllard, of (lie Yukon Valley Co.,
who has boon greatly impressed with
the samples from the Bald Mountain
property, will examine and report upon
the property.
Mr. \V. PelJew Harvey, formerly of
Golden and now of Vancouver, lias boon
appointed engineer to tho Associated
Gold MineB of British Columbia Limited
which has its head ollice in London and
whose capital Is $600,000.
Mr. Manuel Dainard left por steamer
Duchesa on Tuesday last for Carbonate
to visit the Bonnison group and inspect
the development work on behalf of the
Kootenay Consolidated Co., who are the
proprietors of tins valuable property.
Mr. T. A. Knowlton is busy with
development work on hi:-* Sunday property on Ottertail. A gang of seven men
whom he brought with hlra from tho
east is doing the work. The rise of water
is however rotarding operations. It is
Mr. Knowlton's intention to ship a eat-
loud of ore to Uie east in order to obtain
a proper milling test.
Mr. W. G, Mitchell-Innes, manager of
the Golden British Columbia, Limited,
returned the other day from Windermere, where he has let various contracts
for development work on tlie company's
properties on Toby creek and Horse
Thief creek in thut mining division. The
company will also commence operations
on their properties in Prairie Mountain
district, in tlie Golden mining division.
Krenucritc, a mineral not previously
identified from this country, has been
found in the Independence mino at Cripple Creek. It occurs in brilliant crystals
of a pale yellowish bronze color, but tin-
white on cleavage faces. Eliminating
the insoluble matter, an analysis shows
tho mineral to contain 43.80 por cent,
tellurium. The crystals are small and
about as broad as long, and tho prismatic
faces are striated. They have fl perfect
basal cleavage, which is a prominent
feature of the mineral. The lack of any
appreciable nuAntity of silver in the
Cripple Creek ores, as shown by the
returns of the smelters, is proof that
much, if not nearly all of the mineral
passing ns sylvanito is either krennerite
or Its sub-species culavorito Krennerite
ranges from silver-white to brass-yotlow
In color, and is so near sylvanito in its
physical properties that frequently the
eye cannot distinguish one from the
other.
The owners of mining properties are
busy with development and assessment
work till over Kast Kootenay. This season thero will ho much solid work done
tending to make many of the properties
shipping mines. Major Clohecy iB out
on the Bennison group which lies on the
divide between Last aud West Kootenay
near tlie headwaters of the Duncan river.
Extensive work will be dune on this
property this season. A tramway will
belaid iu the various tunnels to facilitate development operations. A new
trail is being cut from Bear creek station
so as to give a new and bettor route to
this and other properties lying up the
Beaver river and near Prairie mountain.
The work on the trail is considerably
advanced and will bu finished to admit a
portion of the supplies to go in this way
this season. Air. K. Deacon, formorly
of Sptlleniacheen, will have n packing
OOIitmct for this mine this season and
will build a corral at Bear crock station
for his horses.
Tho (Jolden and Tort Steele Develop-
j meat Co. will resume their dovolopment
work on tlieir properties on Kinbasket
lake, near thc llig Bond of the Columbia
river, in the Donuld mining division.
Already they have a shaft down fcu feet
and have reached the hanging wall of
lead, which will be crosscut. The filial!
nasses through mineral all the way.
two of (heir properties thero will bo

obtained. On the Mercier group, situated at the headwaters of Bugaboo creek,
about eight mile from tho Duncan river
and on thc divide bclwcen West and
Kast Kootenay, but lying in the (iolden
mining division) extensive development
will be prosecuted. This group oi properties is in a position to snip ores, and
iron; a shipment of these ores sent last
season t�� Mossrs. Vivian tt Sons, Swansea, most satisfactory results were ol>-
taiticd. More shipments will he made
ibis season for further milling tests.
This group promises to be one of the
Lest mining properties iu Last Kootenay.
These properties will also be surveyed

Intoreatlne Description of Country
Lyinif to tho North.
('. P. Price, better known as "Kid"
Price, and John W. Kvans, trappers,
prospectors and minors, were in Golden
this week outfitting. Thoy had come in
from a three years' trip, bringing a
splendid assortment of furs und pelts,
tbe finest that has been brought into the
(iolden market lot* many a day, for transhipment eastwards. Thk MlNKH hud a
most interesting talk with both of the
pioneers, who are men of great, intelligence who hail kept diaries oftho principal incidents occurring during their
long sojourn in the lonely romoteuess far
removed from the haunts of civilization.
The area of their operations was confined
to i\ large district north of tho headwaters of the Canoe and Thompson rivers
and eastwards of thu Rocky mountains
to Jasper lake.
Price und Evans have now left Golden
with four horses aud outfit to last them
for two years. They will prospect the
country lying to the north of the Canoe
and Thompson rivers, and if unsuccessful in their Bearch their expedition will
be continued further north io the headwaters of the Peace river.
The bulkof tlieir outfit will be sent by
rail to Heaver station and then transported by water down tlie Columbia
rivor and up the Canoe river. They
proceed with their horses and a portion
of their outfit by the old Moberly trail to
tho Boat Encampment, near the month
of the Canoe and Woods rivers, where
these waters empty into the Big fiend of
the Columbia. Here they expect to meet
the party Under Frank Berthiaume, win
arc busy clearing out the trail to tlie
mineral properties on the Kinbasket lake
and extending this trail to lhe Boat.
Encampment and up the Canoe river.
11 thoy arc successful in meeting tliis
party they will join it and assist iu cutting a trail up the Canoe river to within
twenty-five miles of Tete I'Jeuno Cache
where the old Hudson's Bay trail leading
from Kamloops to Edmonton hy way oi
the Yellowhead Pass will he joined.
If Berthiaumu's pj^rtyis not met with,
thou the old Moborley trail leading from
(iolden to Edmonton through MoDorley
Pass will be taken und followed until
this trail joins the Kamloops trail at
Jasper House, on Jasper lake, east of
the Rocky mountains. They will then
return ou this trail through the Yellow-
head Pass to where it crosses the Canoe
river, some 84 miles from its mouth
North of this the country is moro or Lost
open and there hi not much difficulty iu
getting through with liofHes. Southwards however lo the Big Bend country
ia a difficult one to got through with
horses.
As soon as tho party get in with their
horses lo the Boat Encampment they
will come back to Beaver, about 100
miles up the Columbia river, whore they
will bring in the remainder of supplies
by boat. Jf all is well, they expect to he
housed by the end of September.
Their headquarters will bo at Starvation Camp (a most inappropriate name),
live miles south of Tete I'Jeuno Cache,
The camp is situated iu a pleasant valley
about 2o miles long and from 12 to ly
miles wide, lying between thc Canoe
and Fraser rivers. Their bor.ses will
winter in ihe valley without auy feed
requiring to Lo put up for them. Here
in this valley at their camp they havo
put in a garden in whicli they* have
carrots, turnips, radishes, parsnips, peas,
onions aud other roots and vegetables,
bo as to increase thoir supplies, They
have taken with them a fresh supply of
seeds for next year's crops. All these
vegetables grow well in this valley.
Both Price and Kvans have been
familiar with this country for the last
three years, prospecting nml trapping.
A considerable portion of that time was
spent west of the Koekies and north of
the Big Keud of the Columbia. Part of
it was however devoted to prospecting
and trapping in and around the headwaters of the Athabasca and Jasper
lakes, east of tbe Koekies. They have
met with considerable success in thoir
trapping expeditions, but havo not been
so successful in their prospecting; but
they speak very highly of the condition
of tho country west of the Koekies.
Along tho great valley or depression
which lies westof the Rockies the timber
is comparatively open, but in the canyons and on the mountains it is heavy.
There are considerable stretches uf
meadow-land, The winters spent there
Were agreeable, ln the valley there was
little snow, but, ou the foothills aud on
the mountains there was lots of it.
Although they havo not made any
mining locations, they have been impressed with the appearances and hope
.0 be more successful in their search
lining this absence.
Both Price and Kvans declare that
Golden is the liest town to outfit in. Thc
provisions areola higher quality, much
better packed for transportation and
much Cheaper in price, and they have
bad   experience   in   many   towns,   hut

ly and from lofty patriotic
THE COMPOSITION OFTHE OPPOSITION AND WHAT IT OUGHT
TO BE.
The government political force is united aa a solid phalanx*, compact and facing
the political foe with a determination to
v ���tain the government citadel. The
opposition force Una neither tho eom-
pa aness nor tho solidarity, and there
nre signs of ihsunion among leaders and
followers. Tho question is arising, Who
i.> leader'.' Js it that wiluy Conservative
who has so astutely led tho parliamcn-
j try opposition, or that firebrand
Liberal imported from a distant pvov-
iiicuV Tlio followers two inclined to be
mutinous not only on choice of leader,
hut on choico o( treed. Tiiere are oppo-
uitioii candidates who are neither flesh
nur fowl, nor good red herring, except
friah-like, they are "ag'iu' the govern-
���lent"; there are Liboral candidate to
whom wo pin our faith (wo only wish
there wore mure uf thorn), and there are
Independent candidates who desiro to
Hcoro off their own bat anil join the
winning side. The opposition is a regular hotch-potch so far as mixture is
concerned. Will tliis mixture be acceptable to tho electors? it will require a
very long spoon to sup this mixture.
The electors are bewildered. They do
not know where thoy are. They may
know what they aro going to get rid of,
but they do not know what they ar
going to put in place of lhe riddance. It
may bu a ease of King Stork for King
Log, Klectors understand party politics
but thoy have not so much eomprohon
Bion of non-party polities. Wo ncvoi
know a country yet, or a municipality,
that was well governed or administered
that was conducted on non-party lines.
Tho country or municipality that is
otherwise governed or administered than
on strict party lines is a country or
municipality thut is badly governed or
administered. The ease is in point���no
need of further illustration. It. would
not lie better governed by the change; it
may bo worse misgoverned. A Libera!
or Conservative policy or measure out
can understand or comprehend; bntom
that is neither i.-j fundamentally bad
Thc electors have not much.choice; it 18
not measures, hut men ; party is not in
it. it. Is therefore tho duty of tho electors tq vote for the best man. If this is
done It will end in a compromise and
will lead lo a rearrangement of government*, but tho good government province
will be no further forward.
That patriotism is tho last rofugo of a
icoundrol who thanks Cod that ho lives
:i a country that he can plunder.

THE
PROVINCIAL   POLITICAL
CONTESTS.
The Provinco of Uritish Columbia is in
the throes of a revolution���a political
revolution. Thero will be a great war,
but it will be a war of words. HiVulets
ot ink will flow and acres of paper will
he consumed before the contest is ended.
And what is it all about? Tho old
government must pass away and a new
government must take its place. And
why? Tho present government is corrupt and its members are a set of rascals,
aud the measure of their iniquities is
like the Jewish measure of old : heaped
Up, pressod down und running over; and
so ihey must he driven from office and
power, And who are to take their place?
Another s,*t of rascals, who may be of a
deeper dye, who will form another government thai will be equally as corrupt,
if not more so, than the present govern
me tit. They have got to reward their
followers. The ins and outs are now
arrayed against each other. The electors
are tolerably familiar with tho doing? of
the "ins," who have certainly been
human and erred considerably. Thc
'��� outs" want to get into ollice, and perfectly right if the electors will place them
there; hut what are they going to do
when they get thero? They aro not
immaculate, and we cannot prophecy
what they will do, because we do not
know. As for their policy, it is like the
gOOdn088 of tho Creator���past finding
out; it has neither beginning nor end-
ing. All that is known is that they are
against tho government, it is easier to
be a destrtn live critic than a constructive ono, '11111! easier to destroy an edifice
���than 1 iv t one; and wlm It is destroyed,' mpnt work,
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Rossland, with Us advantages, has it-
disadvantages. It has prospered from
booms. U has 1 tiffored through slumps.
i'i:.-* are not u commodity for which
thero is a ready market except among
entomologist!*, and here tt is limited.
Last weefe Hossland was overstocked
with them. The very air was full of all
types ami varieties so numerous that
classification was Impossible. The pursuit of scienco was given up in pursuit ol
the bugs, and bug-slaying became thc
absorbing occupation of the inhabitants
and was tho chief theme of conversation.
Che Spanish war and tho Golden Twins
government had to take a back sea!.
What a pity the volunteers had not been
unrolled. They might have been called
into active service and distinguished
themselves as Ihe bug-slayers.
Tbe Calgary Herald, in commenting
on the report of the commission on the
Crow's Nest l'asa railway grievances,
declares "it is Impossible to read the
report without coming to the conclusion
that Haney has grossly abused the unlimited powers he seems to have possessed, lie has acted the role of a slave
driver rather than that of a man In
charge of a great public work for which
tho government is indirectly paying.
The Hussian barbarities which, if he did
not initiate, he seems lo have countenanced, justly tumid for him throughout
Southern Alberta tlio name of ' Czar'
Haney. If ho possessed thc loast idea of
tho Illness of things, ho would at once
resign his position."
The last issue of the British Columbia
Gazfitto contains proclamations appointing tho place;; of nomination and naming
thu returning officers. The places of
nomination fur Kast Kootenny are as
follows: For the North Hiding, Court
House, Donald; the South Hiding, Court
House, Tort Steelo. Thc returning officer for tho Xorth Kid ing is Sheriff
Stephen F.odgravc, Donald, and the returning officer for the South Hiding h
Mining Recorder Charles M. Edwards,
Kort Steele.
Thai political buck, The Nation, which
has for ils motto " British Columbia
First) Last ami Alway," and which has
sprung into existence to be the boomerang of the present government and assist
iu giving it its quietus, declares " it ifl in
the interests of Uritish Columbia that
honest men only be permitted to control
tho affairs of i.tato." Fancy a pickpocket
preaching tho gospel of morality!
Brltlah Capital for British Columbia
Mr. T. R. Mardlman has just returned
from London, England, where he spent

W. G. Wells' Address to
the Electors of this
District.
TO THK ELECTORS OFTHE NORTH
RIDIXG  OF EAST KOOTENAY:
My nomination as an Opposition Can
(litlatG in tho approaching Gouoral Election for our Legislature, calls on nic to
state to you briefly, the course, which in
my opinion, I should tako if elected as
your Representative.
Ho far as I have boen able to measure
tho fouling of this Constituency, it is
on*.! of disappointment in tho admini*-;
tration of our Provincial affairs. In the
proseut contest 1 am glftd to say, wc are
not so divided on party lines, as to debar
us from taking our choice of mon
throughout the Province for tiie ensuing
parliamentary term, and it is to be hoped
tlutt an independent effort will be made
in this direction. Holding tlie opinion
ns I do, that tlie record of the present
Government, in thc disposal of public
lands, and their administration of the
Provincial finances, not having been
Biich as to command my support, it is
my plain duty, for the present, to claim
your suffrages a3 an Opposition Candidate* Tliis doo3 not necessarily mean
that I must place myself in such ant ft
gonism to any administration, as to
defeat what should be my primary object
ns a Representative, namely, the interest of my own Constituency.
Nor does it moan that 1 am in full
alliance with the Opposition parly as it
has stood before the Legislature durin;
thc past four years. For thia reason, if
no oilier, I would ask at the hands of my
constituents, if elected, a free indulgence
of my own judgment as to the courso 1
should adopt in this particular respect.
I look for at least a reconstruction as the
result of the general election, and that
we may have an administration fully
mooting the doraanda of our rising
Province.
The large appropriation of $5,000,000
under the recent Public Works Loan
Amendment Act, while indicating
generous tendency iu the disposal of
public funds, cannot meet tlie approval
of interior constituencies. We are in
teres ted In something more than building up our terminal cities,, and the
exclusive welfare of districts immediately
tributary to thorn. It will therefore, be
my firat contention that substantial
justice should be given to the eastern
portion of this Province, as compensation for the enormous appropriation
made directly, 1 consider, In tlie interest
of Const constituencies, for which we too
have to bear our share of the burthen.
In this connection, 1 may say that the
terms subsidizing tho Teslin Lake Railway have my approval as a legitimate
business transaction, apart from other
considerations, and which arc: First,
whether there is an urgent necessity to
build, at present, tha southern portion
of this line; and secondly, whether we
have not been too precipitate in snatching from the Dominion Government, a
responsibility which rightly belongs to it,
In the interest of eastern provinces, mote
than to British Columbia. We have,
withiu ourselves, sufficiently attractive
features In our vast mineral resources, to
fully warrant tho investment of capital
and the influx of population, or in other
words, we have ourown affairs, to which
it might be better, nt present, that we
give our undivided consideration. 1
mean hy this that, being so wholly dependent as we are upon the opening up
and energetic development of uur mines,
the further construction of roads, and
increased facilities of interior transportation, becomes an imperative necessity.
To this I will urge tlie consideration of
tho Government, and trust that in justice to this, the extreme eastern constituency of the Province, further appropriation will be now made, ami that we
may have, at least, what fairly belongs
to us.
My election at your hands, I would
accept as n mark of confidence and
trust, sufficient to determine me In
guarding faithfully the position in which
you shall have placed tno as your Representative. In my appreciation of tliis
trust, and an earnest endeavour to serve
your interests, I sincerely hope that it
will not be expected that I am to defeat,
or risk the opportunity given me, by
such a thankless allegiance to party
measures AS might thwart what I consider my imperative duty towards developing tho material resources of the
North Hiding of Must Kootenay.
Anticipating and thanking you for
your support,
I am at your service,
W. C. WELLS.
