up strong, cutting clean  across the formation
and varying f<-om two and one-half to five feet i

but very rich and the country rock between Ihe
two oro bodies Is sprinkled with native copper,
bunches of which arc gathered on tlie footjvallj
A fine double  compartment shaft has been
Started and will bo put down 150 feet before

ore from the Humming Mini property up the
North Fork. The certilicate shows a value of
$66 in gold and copper. A second assay was
made ou Thursday from samples taken from
different parts Of the claim, which gave a return of (68.80ln all values. Mr. O'Connor and
his associates aro so well pleased with the result, that they have decided to make a shipment of u carload of this ore to the Trail smelter as an experiment.
Another Strikb.
The Diamond Hitch bids fair to become bne
of the( most notable properties up the North
Fork, as the wor~kof development advances the
showing of ore becomes enormous. Only a few
days ago a new ledge was .struck about one
hundred yards from (he old workings aud it
now shows up eight feet of solid ore similar to
that found elsewhere ou the claim. Work has
been pushed on this property all winter and
spring in the shape of open cuts, shallow shafts
and other surface development, until it Is one of
the most promising prospects In the entire district.

Oid R. Propper, erstwhile orignator
of boom newspaper articles for the
Graud Forks Townsite Co., but who
for tho past two months has mado
Greenwood his head.iuarters. is now in
a fair way to becomo prominently beforo tho puplic In a new role, that of
having to explain .hiB connection with
the Fale in Marcus of two horses
neither of which belonged to hith.
On Wednesday of,la'it woek Propper
borrowed a horse from Patltiekeyof
Greenwood for tho purpose, ho ssid, cf
visiting tho No, 'I mine, expecting to ro-
turu in two hours. Instead of going to
the No. 7, however, he rode to NelBon.
Wash., and Btayed thoro until Sunday
aftornooh with tho. exception of the
time consumed in making a hurried
trip to Greenwood and return. . In Nelson he solicited business from the mor-
chanta of that place for a newspaper
which ho said he intondod establishing
there. Ho met with little encourage-
ment, according to. tho statements ot
the Nelson busings men. Ho made
arrangements, wit^i ,Wra, McCluro to
rent a building from him for a printing olliee. . i
Meanwhile Propper had picked up a
you.pg man w;hb has been drifting
around this section of tho country, but
whose name cannot be given, Propper
had also traded horses with Joo Mc
Donald. On Sunday afternoon he borrowed MoDonald'o horse for his companion also borrowing a .saddle from
Wm. McOlure and a bridle from J. T.
Medlure. staling .that he wished to
come to.Grand forks and make arrang-
ments to havo his newspaper outfit
shipped to Nelson on the succeeding
day.
Instead of coming to this oity however tho couple croeso.l the rivor on
tho Carson bridgo and again at the free
ferry about a milo.below the city, thus
avoiding recognition here.
On Monday morning J. T, McOlure
called at tho MlHKB office where Prop*
por'B outfit was supposed to be stored,
but finding tliat that gentloman had
no interests here MoC'lure conveyed the
intelligence to Nelson, and McDonald,
started for Marcus to endeavor to recover hiB property. There he discovered
that Propper hai sold both outfits for
810. A Marcus livery stable nn'n purchased ono aod Henry Pllis tho other
tho ono Henry Eilis had being the cue
that McDonald wanted, Mr. Ellia had
left for Wellington camp so McDonald
returned to Nelson and on Wednesday
evening went with J. t'. McCluro to the
oamp whero Mr. Ellis was staying, The
latter displayed a bill Of sale fur, the
horse saddle and bridle signed by G. R,
Propper, and refusod to give Up the
outfit without being reimburse d for the
outlay ho had put into it.
On Thilrnday EtftSrnddn McCluro returned with Provincial uonstable Dinsmore ami Mr. Ellis turned the property
over to the ollicer and accompanied him
to this city of hie own 1'rou will.
Tho horse which is now in Mr. Dins
moreB keeping is claimed by Pat
Hickey of Greenwood of whom Propper
originally obtained it. and also by Joe
.McDonald of Nelson to whom Propper
traded it for tno other horse which is
still In Marcus.
Steps aro boing takoil for tho arrest
of both Propper and his companion, tho
former of whom is beloived to bo in
Rossland aud tho latte:' in Meyers Kails,
Oni of thei horses being Btiler? In Canada and tho other in tho United States,
arrests can be.tr.ado ho mattor in which
country they aro found...
In Marcus, Propper gavo a3 an eyeuie
for selling tho horses aud saddles r.o
cheap, that he was going home to Spokane and eouldu't take the animals
with hith, \Vhou ho retv.rr.od, ho Gaul,
ho would like to buy them back at the
081110 price. .

THERE 18 HOPE YET.
The Victoria Colonist of July loth Contains,
the following regarding tbe possibilities of tllq
Boundary Creek district Bepurlpg railway connections tills year: "Hon. Mr. ') urncr told thy
Board Of Trade yesterday tiiat tho Provincial
government has renewed it? efforts to secure
the construction . f the railway from Pentieton
to lioiindary Creek, and that he was hopeful oi
a successful result. The importance of this
piece oi railway i-s snob that it may cornmend
itself,to tlie Fe'.ieral government for linmedf
ate consideration. For some reasons bes^ know u
to theioiolves, and which, we believe, we couhl
very cloBdly guess, ri certain noisy but uninflu
cuHal clique In,. Victoria are opposing thi-.
They would rather the railway ndvei should be
built, that the development of tbe Boundary,
Creek country should be retarded nnd that its
trade should fie -druwri away tn United States
cities, thai* that the Turner government fchould
bj successful-in its efforts to promote the hu
mediaie constructiorJ nf this linu. This Is un
fortunafe; becaiiso any division infltcommuu-
Ity on it ijne^tion of thls-eliarnctf'r is piejudii

this year, may yet succeed In spite of these ph
Btfuctionists, as every odier [dan foiLthe better:

CAN DO WITHOUT THEM.
!' In refusing to insert in 4,io Crow's
'Nest charter clauses preventing the
employment of mongol cheap labor on
'the line and in its coal mining in dustry
the government made a gi*3at error.
There are alrea ly in tho Kootonay and
Vale districts, and will bo moro, sufficient sturdy men of British, American
Teutonic and Scandinavian birth, unemployed und ready to work for a moderate compensation tin all lines of
work involved in the-C'row'B -Nest undertakings, without employing any.
'Would it be to tbe interests nf British
Columbia to sea these men superseded
bv less sturdy and' skillful' mongols,
.vhosc only advantage to employers is
that they will live dn the lowest conditions of life sustinance and contribute
a portion of their earnings monthly to
tho railway officials for th ~ privilege of
holding a situation. Jf such an ur.do-
sired state of all airs should come .about,
it will result in the greatest possible detriment to the settlement of our Prov-'
ence by men of British or like assimilative stock and like capacity for social
betterment, but thero ie. almost certain
to bo raised a racial an.l 3ocial probiom
of menacing dilliculty. Kvery pesorn
who is in anyway interested in the
future of British Columbia should eyort
every point to eeo that it is retained in
the main as a land ot European and
American settlement, and if a railway
and its contractors attoinpt to , introduce into this province a mass of mon
gol labor, they should be set down on
with both feet.
UNANSWERED PRAYER.
OUTLANDISH NAHES.
In tho Northport.News of. last week
in reference to tho Pend D'Oriello river,
the natuo was spelled "Pond de Ray."
Now this by no means a reflection upon
the News, which is a very bright representative of a lively little towu, but it
is simply another demonstration of the
heathenish practice of loading onto
towns, rivers, lakes ;aud mountains foreign names that not one English speaking person out of a thousand can spell
without reference to the map. Either
theso outlandish names should be dropped or their spelling changed to tit their
sound when pronounced. -
Thk lack of interest taken in the organization of a Ere department by the'
proporty oiVnors and business men of
the town, is Very discouraging to the
promoters of,the enterprise. If those
who have their all invested in buildings
and goods are -not sufficiently interested
iu tho organization of an association
whose main object is to protect property from fire, to lend their presence
at a mass .meeting called for that purpose, fre fail to see why those, who'
are comparatively disinterested, beyond
the pride they take irt bavitlg an effl*1
cient fire brigade, should exert them*,
selves. It. is hoped tbat the meeting
this evening in Victoria hall will be
largely attended by property holders
and business men tv*ho can at least
show their appreciati on of tho efforts of
others td protect their property by tluir
presence and words of encouragement,
even it thoy do not doolie to become active members,

A Bid DEAL.
Proposition to Utiuze Tire Cascade:
-'    Water Power.
A dispatch from* Rossland states that
there1 1s' 'a' hie deal on foot there now
"which, if consummated*, will prove a
great factor' in developing'the Btiund-
'ary country, including Cascade' City,
Grand Forks, Greeriwood, Fairview and
"the othor western campS, It is stated
'on reliable authority that onb of the big
'railway corporations'haB made an offer
to theoWnersot the'townsite and water
power at Cascade City to' purchase the
absolute right to the magtiificent watei
tall at that point. It is stated should the
company secure the powor it will establish car'shops and terminal facilities at
Cascade City and develop tho water
power to such a degree ils to furnish
ample power to the mines of that dis
triot and light and heat to'the many
camps in tbat'eountry.
There seems to be some serious trou
ble, however, Over the title. The owners of the Cascade City townsite claim
to havo had tho right to tho water power given them under their crown grant
and therefore assort their rights as own
ere, while other parties at Vancouver
and Victoria, who secured a charter
labt Bession, claitt) they are the sole
owners of tho powor, ynless this dis
puto is settled in short order the vyholo

Nothing Certain
About It,
F. August Heinze name into Kpikane
wearing an overcoat last night, sayh the
SpokeEmah-Ri'viev. MoGt of the Spokano pooplo had their vent:; o!T, wero sitting putside v, here the soft and gentle
zephyr from tho oo'wost could fan their
porspiring brows, and were ovorjoyed at
being tble'to keep perfectly nuiet, But
whon tho cab stoppou in front Of tlio hotel and Mr. Heinze, woaring a black
overcoat, fetopped out, t!*ore was a look
of relief from the hotol loungers, and it
was apparent from the way coats woro
buttono*! up that thoro was a sudden
change in the temperature.
Mr, Heinze was as cool as a cucunjber,
dignified, preoccupied, and--sad. But
ho was not cold. Ho mot a reporter tor
the Spokesman-Review and shook hands
with ths same, cordiality that ho extended to the president of tho Le Roi
Mining Company.
"I have beon absent sinca last January," he said, "aod am now rctumin*.:
to look after my interests in Trail creek.
I stopped in Butte cbout ton days to
rest and recuperate." ,
The fact.ic Mr. Hoinze is not at all
well. He spent the greater part of th?
winter and spring at Ottawa, lobbying
for a subsidy for his Columbia & Western railroad from Rob-.on to Penticto!),
on Okanogan lake, but failed at last,
owing to intorferenca *from the' coast.
The strain, was great, and it has
left him in a measure depressed and
worn out. He needs' tbo mountain air
and a brief respite from me ntal labor.
"I can toll, you nothing about the
railroad question that you have not al-
ready told-, your readers," slid Mr.
Heinze, when asked about his contest
for a subsidy from the government. "1
feel uow as I have felt all along, that we
wera entitled to it, We hav*- spent vast
sums of money in that section to develop the territory., whilo the Canadian
Pacific has spent nothing."
"What are your plans for the future?
Will the ro£d be built toPoniictcn anyhow?"       . ■       •
"That question I am unable to answer just" uow. It depends on several
things, and"for that reason it is impossible to'say at present just what will
be done. If is possible that something
may be done; but there is nothing certain about it."
"Havoybu any hope or assurance that
the ^overninent will allow a subsidy at
it6 next regular aessiou?" i
No, thero Is no hope from that source.
If certain things can be accomplished
we may be" able to go ahoad but it is
difficult to tell anything about it yet."
"Does tho widening of your present
road into a standard gauge mean that
the Canadian Pacific will use it to get
into Rossland?"
"No arrangemont of any kind has been
mado wifh'the Canadian Pacific, and
none has been attemped."
Mr, Heinze then went into a conference with tbe Le Roi officials on matters pertaining to the smelter, and retired early. He m?y romain hare sev-
eraldays before going to Trail.
How the Situation Sizes up.
A special dispatch from Trail to the
Spokane Chroniclo fitatos that F. A.
Heinzo, is oxpected in Trail eyiry day,
Before his arrival bo has ordered tho
Columbia & Western widoned to a
standard guage, which involves new ties,
new rails, now curves and new rolling
stock—almost, in fact, as an ongitteor
said, "a ne\y rajlroad." Ifo will Hud on
bis arrival }i\s railroad to Robson ready
for the rails. Ho will find hisOoluuibia-
Kootonay mino working in pnlid oro
twenty foot in width, ant] enough of
shipping stuff to mako good tho loss of
the Le Roi, What ho will do with his
Pentieton scheme is still a question
among the Trail pooplo. I( ho and tho
Canadian Pacilic people are pulling together, it is not impossible the road
wCBt from Robson will bo started this
year, This is moro than probable if
Corbin indicates ghis ability to extend
his system into the Grand Forks country. It would be a serious handicap to
the business of the Canadian linn if
Corbin got into tho Boundary country
first and intronched himself as he has
dono in tha Salmo-QuarU* Creek district
afn: in tEe'EoEsJana • am'p.
Jt baG beon li.,* gossip, more or less
reliable, tbat Corbin's allier: ■ oa"1 a
{•would become cur. ihis tsqath, -..'"I'
on-. :.:uit*i*ti*";c and Bttcient :-y.r*:lv* in
the treasury to justify tho Grand Forks
eztecsion. His opportunity :.-: now
precent, if !;■; ccn Beize il—If Wall
street will help liiiy. llein.e e:k1 vat*.
Horn must see that Corbin is a danger-
ous factor and -Unit they would icri c
groat deal of the bu"ine=s of the best
portion, almost, of the province if he is
permitted to invade lioundary first.
Fii*:.t means more to the C. P. pud
Ileinra than it does to Corbin.
Tho surprise is general that IJoinzo
ban not fi::ed up v. ith tbo La Roi people.
He noy gets fli a ton for transports
tion'asd smelling and if h,o v/ould contract with tho Le Roi to do bofh for 89
sa;, tbo two interratF. might got together.
In this connection it is some people's
gU023 th*lt Senator Tumor may have
had a successful'interview with fir
William Van Homo during bis recent
visit to Ottawa, It is more than prob
ablo tbat they talked about tho Lo Roi
smelter and transportation ratee. Van
Home undoubtedly told him be could
fix'bo'th, and tho question, not divulged
yet, is* "Has he dono it?" If be is in
with jHeinze he may have done It. The
Canadian Pacific has the oifo right
o the Trail smelter upon  the same
11*.   It  haaalso the slto at Robson.
'bo  Canadian  Pacific can oit'or tbo in-
ueeineii.to and it looke to the layman
if  lhe  Cana.:i;in 'Pacific would do
at very thing.
.SEALS THE.R FATE.
Scnr.vE of Dk. Jordan to Kill B. O.^
■  Sb*.li>-g Bcsikess.
Our southern.* neighbor Uncle Ham
has entered into a combination with
David Stijrr Jordan, president of tho Lo-
land Stanford University, to destroy
pelagic sealing. Pelagic sealing is
whero the seal hunters cruise around
outsido cf thu three miles of water
along the coast claimed by tho United
States, and shoot thB. seals when they
come up tq soo what kind of a day it is.
Thon if the seal fioals they go get him
and if ho Einks they cuss a little and
hunt for another one.
Ju3t plain sealing is whore thescneak
up on the seaU whon they aro asloep ou
shore and kill them with a club. This
is much mora profitable and not nearly
so profaue as the other kind, but tho
trouble is Uncle Sain wont let B. C.
sealers kill any seals on shore and now.
he is mad because the seals that the
pelagic fellows shoot and don't f»et, fail
to come ashore to bo killed by the U* S.
sealers. Then too a lot of Mr3. seals are
shot and thon tho baby seals that have
boon loft on shore while their mothers
went out to catch a salmon, never grow-
up and as a matter of consequence the,
soals aro getting few and far between.
So now Dr. Jordan, who has an extra
long head, has decided that tho way to
do is to brand the. Miss seals v/itli a big
S on tho back whero seal-skin cloaks
grow, so when thoy get to'bo Mrs. seals
and go out to fish tho polagic soalorB
will not kill them because their fur will
be no good. Then Dr. Jordan wili build
.1 big corral in a harbor'of the Pribylofi!
Islands, and herd all tho Mr. seals into
it so that they can't go ou I and be
killed.    *
Dr. Jordan is now on his way to
Alaska to carry out his scheme accompanied by Mr. farmer who invented tho
jlectrjcul branding machine, and a lot
of medical students who, when all the
little seals aro caught, will tell Mr. Farmer which are the Miss seals, bo that
he will know which of thotn to brand.
(Durratit wanted to go along as head
expert but tho sheriff was keeping him
in after school when the party lefl .San
Francisco, so h'js services will be lacking.)
Jordan, Undo Sam tic Co. anticipate
that thoir scheme will drivo tho B. C.
sealers out of tho business because the
only seals that will bo out wnero thoy
can be shot, will bo the Mrs. seals with
big S's on their backs, so thoy will hav e
to catch tho Betds first to see whothor or
not tboy arc branded.
The probability is hovyevor that the
fact of a soalslf.il] having an S on it will
not detract from its contmercial v(*lue.
Thore are Shooney sealskin cloak sellers
with just ft! long heads as Dr. Jordan
aud thoy will just draw two bars, down
through tbo S, mako a t? mark out of it
■ind brand tho prico of tho cloak on
eveiy ono. Then sealskin cloaks and
jackets will be all the rage and in the
iwell churches of tho F.ast, rising above
the low backed pews, may be soon jacket backs of all sizes stamped 8150, S1T5
5180 aud bo on. Then every lady will
'je able to display tho cost ot her jacket
and also havo the excuse that sho
couldn't holp it.
When in neod of anything in the line
ot job. work do not forgot that The
iliNKR can supply you at the lowost
possible price for good work.

Hie Bridge street slough was being dis
cussed anil the following interesting dialogue took place W. K C. Manly spoak*
ing:
"I don't see any uso to donate any
more to tho newspaper if they want so
touch for printing. It would tako only
a few minutes to write out tho notices
and thoy wili do just us well.'1
L. A, Manly—''What is the aewopa
per for anyway if it isn't for tho public.
They mako their money out of tho business advertisements and ought to publish notices to contractors tor nothing."
Johnson—"It is simply a mattor of
I'ticiness with tho paper. This is just
ns much advertising as anything."
Hepworth—"We know everyone that
would want to bid, don't we? Wo could
just tell them what we want and that
would do just as well."
W. K. 0, M.- "Well tho paper warmod
it to the city in great 6bape for those
■by-laws."
J K J --"That is just half the advertised rite for that character of advertising."
W k C .M—"It don't make any dJlT'-r
ence.   It is too dammed much.   No one
'else is trying to touch tho city in that
way.   Here is a bill for 8330 for printing that it didn't cost $25 to set.''
J K,.1 -"Well of course they have to
make a reasonable profit. You wouldn't
sell things out uf your store without
malting something."
W K C M—"Ne, but 1 don't want to
make live thousand per cent, I would
like to seo McCarter mako some imney
but I don't want to soe him punch it to
the city too hard."
•i K.J- "Other towns pay as much and
a greater rate than this."
W K C M—"It don't make any difference, This is only a small town and
shouldn't pay so much for its printing
us cities. These by-laws are going to
cost us nearly as much as Rossland had
to pay, and thero is a city of 5000 people."
J K J—"Then if this town is too poor
to pay its bills it shouldn't have incorporated."
W K C M—"Woll, that may be."
Johnson—"I move that Alderman
Hepworth take the chair.'.' Tho idea of
B motion seemed to stun the council for
they sat perfectly rigid and silent for
what seenjed a long timo. Then the
clerk declared the motion carried, and
without being called to order the business proceeded.
A bill of W. G. Hepworth forS2.l.5 for
rubber stumps, etc, was referred to the
Seance committee, as waa also a bill of
Tin. Miser for C'-l for printing -1000
assessors' blanks.
Then a bill from Tin*. Mikeb for 6842
for publishing the city by-laws was presented.
W K (' M ''( think it would bo a
good idea to recommend turning the
treasury over to tbe Gkanu Forks
Miner at the rate they are going." 'The
bill w. t.l to the finance committee.
The Bnance committee recommended
paymentof a bill of Manly tic Averill
[or letter press, bookB, etc. No action
was talten upon il.
Johnson moved that all by-laws passed
up t.i this date be reconsidered and
finally passed. The motion was seconded but ufter waiting a whilo tho minds
of the council turned to something el3e
without tho motion beinc put.
It evolved that the city treasurer had
not yet furnished bonds and W. K. C.
Manly moved that be furnish a bond
tor'loflOO with himself and threo sure.,
ties. During the interval of waiting tor
a second to tho motion, tho council was
no doubt occupied in thinking of how
this matter was discussed two months
ago and settled at that limo, while tho
fact that uo record of this appeared
upon the minutes forced them to tako
action  again   upon   the   same subject.
kcow whether
their action."
Everyone hero talked at once and
Johnson wept out after au officer of the.
volunteer firo brigade. During his ab-
6onco tho printing bill waG again discussed, tlie clerk averring that "llie dam
paper hasn't tho circulation ot un ordinary paper anyhow.'
W. K. 0, Manly after stating that the
wbrkin tjWtiori didn't cost "610 said:
"A newspaper is a good thiiij; for a town
and wo couldn't got along without one.
I want to seo tho paper mako money
but thero ia no *uso of thoir charging the
regular rates for city printing."
Li. A. Manly—"Woll, of course 1 don'i
understand theso things and don't know
what would be right, It is out Of my
lino of buciness."
Jubtiso!'. then returned with the min
ules uf th. organization of tho volunteer tiro brigade. The clerk road of the
elections of officers and Juhnson moved
that the council accept the appointments, Tlio motion was declared carried
without being put,
The fire, light and water committee
was instructed to provide a suitable
place for tho lire buckets and ladders,
also to secure a fire alarm.
