THE GRAND FORKS MINER.
SECOND   YEAR.--NO.   68.
GRAND FORKS, B.  C,  SATURDAY,   AUGUST  28, 1897.
PRICE  FHE  CENTS.
YOU BAN VOTE
There Is no Such Thin£ as a
Closed List.
D. W. HIGGINS OPINION
Be Says That Mr. Norris Wrongly Oon-
ttrnes the Law Relative to the
Voters List- Interesting  Letter.
The Visit of Mr. Higgins to Grand
Forks at this time is most opportune,
(or by this visit he is enabled to perform a service for the people of this district that will be appreciated by our
citizens. It consists of straightening
up the difficulty relative to the voters'
list which, according to the construction of Mr. Norris has been closed, thus
shutting out from voting at the next
.election, a large number of men who
have changed their place of residence
lately. These, according to Mr. Hig
gins, will be allowed to vote, providing
they conform to a certain legal provision which is set forth in the following
iletter, received today by the Miner
from Mr. Higgins:
Grand Forks, August 27, 1887.-[To the Editor of the Miner.]—Mr attention has been eall-
£d to thc following notice at the Recorder's
office in this city:
"Memorandum—The next court of revision
will be held on Monday tbe 2nd day of August
next. After revision the list will be closed and
such closed list will be the voter's list for the
ensuing year. Application to have names
rplaced on the voters' list must be sent in to the
collector sixty days before being entered on the
list.   (See Chap. 88, B. U. Con. I
' L. NORRIS,
■Collector of Votes for the Unit Riding of Yale
Electorul District."
The statement by Mr. Norrls that "After revision tho list will be closed and such list will
bejthe voters' list for the ensuing year," is incorrect. The system of registration in force in
this province is continual. It is true that a
court of revision is held in August of each year
hut the lists are uover closed. Any duly .qualified person ipay scud to the collector of votes ln
the district (pwhlc|i ho .resides an application
to have his name placed qn tbo voters' list and
after the name of such applicant shall have
been posted for a.periofi of two months without
,an objection having been Bled the collector is
required to inset t the name on the voters' list.
(See Chap. 88, B. C. Con.) There is no such,
thing as a "cloeed" list under our syatcn*.. If
Mr. Norrls' construction were to prevail no
amines could be added after June 2 of each
year and thousands of qualified voters would be
disqualified at the next election.
II collectors in other districts have misread
the law Bimllarly there will be no eud to the
,1'imfusion, disappointment and illegality next
year.
Immediate steps should be taken to properly
instruct Mr. Norris aud all other collectors who
jpiay labor under (he saine misapprehension.

PIT BY A RATTLER.
Pain-
;D<ivje Woodhead;s JPup Has  a
I'm, Experience.
Dave Woodheud's pup which on the
i8th of tho monttt .was bitten by a rattle sn«ke does no-t appear to have suffered apy BBiious consequences. On
the teorning of the ISth Woodhoad and
LaRue Perrine were on their way to do
some work on a Morrissy creels .claim.
When near the brick yard, east .of the
town, Dave's pup got on the trail of a
rattle snake, and being ,*in unsophisticated canine, though he woul(l have a
little fun on his own accpu.pt. When
be came up to the snake {however lie
got a jab in the hind leg tli-ft brought
forth a volley of howls, making the
hills ring with the echoes. The leg
swelled up too large to be carried
around so after killing the snake,Wood-
head threw the dog into a mudhole and
went on to his work.
When he returned home in tbe evening the dog had just managed to reach
the hoyae and after a few days poulticing, the leg which attained the proportions of a length of stovepipe, returned
to ita normal siize. Now when he roams
tjhe fields the pup examinee a trail very
/iloaely to BBS) whether it is piade by a
ground squirrel or a snake, and if it
proves to be the latter tfiero ia a whizzing sound, a black streak, and in two
seconds the pup bumps up against
Dave's cabin door like a cannon ball.
Gone After a Partner.
Mr. H. S. Cayley, barrister, of Qrand
jForks, passed through town on Saturday's stage bound for Vernon, and it is
whispered that on the result of thiB mission depends liis lifo'-i happiness, aB not
qn legal but upon matrimonial business
,ia he bent. The young lady who has
.consented to bring sunshine into his
iife, is none other than the youngest
^laughter of his lute law partner, Mr. W.
M, Cochrane of yornQn,.—)f jf) ^#y Ad-
ALONfJ   CHRISTINA   LAKE.
Items   op   Intrekest   From  a   Good
Mining Camp.
Quite a brisk little brush fire is at
present raging between Cascade City
and tho lake.
A groat deal of clearing iB being done
this summer on Mr, Saddlers ranch at
English point.
Last Sunday a fiahing party of Rossland people came to Christina lake.
Mr. Reed the well known correspondent
of the Northern Western, was among
tho party.
Some Qne galena ore has been recently found in the Murnt Basin, some 12
utiles up McRea creek. An assay of
this ore recently made showed returns
of 81-10 all values.
The hills around the lake are full ot
prospectors and the heavy giant powder shots can be heard continually
which is standing evidence that the
camp is pushing forward.
Considerable interest is being taken
by the inhabitants of Christina Lake
district over the recent sale of the St.
Elmo property that was bonded by
Messrs, Martin and Curtis, barristers
of Rossland for the sum ot $50,000, as
work ia to be started at once on this
property.
It was for the purpose of trying to ar.
range a settlement between these parties that the Hon. G. B. Martin recently made a trip to tho lake, but the
Chief Commissioner on his arrival here
was unable to arrange a settlement and
reserved his decision till he returned to
Vernon, as this matter is pending
and futher comment is withheld.
Most interest is taken by the people
ot these parte over the coming decision
of the Chief Land CommisBioner for
this Province, in the matter ot the La
Valley property which is beautifully
situated at the lake. The dispute over
this land arose in this way; eome time
ago the LaValley property was staked
aB a purchase by a Mr. Dundee from
Roseland. Mr. LaValley not noticing
the stakes on this land re-staked it as a
pre-emption, and has done large improvements on it and has done a great
deal generally for the advancement of
the Christina Lake district.

FIX UP THE ROAD.
Considerable Work Needed Between Nelson »nd Curlew.
The action of the Midway townsite
company in commencing work on the
road between Midway and the Curlew
store has aroused interest in JJelson in
repairing the road between this place
and Curlew. Early last spring, .when
traffic tirst commenced to be heavy into tnis section there was a tacit understanding between the Midway and Nelson residents that each place would
put the road in shape to Curlew, thus
completing a route which would bring
all of tha freight for Midway and mucb
of that for Greenwood and Anaconda
.through Nelson and around by way ot
of the Kettle river instead of over the
.mountain between Fourth of July
creek and Greenwood. Now tbat Midway is carrying out her part of the agreement the Nelson citizens are contemplating the commencement o* wo k
from their end of the line. There a e
a number of sharp grades ,tu be eased
up,some sidling pieces of road to be levelled aod some sections in the bottom
lands where there are bad chuck-holes
that will have to be filled. It will takor
several hundred dollars to do Nolsou'-.r
part of the work.--Reservation Record.
Will do to Klondike.
Billy Guttridge, who left Grand
Forks about two months ago on a visit
to hia parents who reside in London,
England, has been heard from. Arthur
Miltliorpe got a letter this week from
Billy in which he states that he arrived
home safe and sound and was at present enjoying himself in renewing acquaintances of his childhood days.
Billy says that ho has been i-uccessful
in organising a .company to work a number ot properties he ia interested in on
Canyon creek and he expects to return
to the Forks in u short time to commence work on them. He also adds
that he is perfecting arrangements to
lead an exploration party into the
Klondyke tor the caine couipany, to
start from this city about the first uf
March and has made a proposition to
Mr. Milthropo to join the party.
Should Speak Out in Meeting.
In a recent issue of the Spokesman-
Review there appeared an item to tho
effect that one of Grand Forks' barristers bad created considerable indignation by going swimming in a nude state
in the presence of ladies. As there are
several gentlemen in Grand Forks who
belong to the legal fraternity and who
under no circumstances would degrade
theinseives by taking a plunge in a nude
habitue in the presence ot ladies, tho
author of the article should in all fairness to those gentlemen give the name
of the offending barrister to the public.
The fishing in the Kettle river near
Edward's Ferry is said to be excellent.
Lovers of the sport can find the beet of
accommodations at MreXSiahsm'** at the
fB-ry,
Tom Parkinson, president of th e Path -
finder Mining, Reduction and Investment company, came down from tho
company's property on Pathfinder hill
Wednesday evening. At present thoy
are running a crosscut at tho bottom of
the shaft, whicn is now down 65 foet, to
determine tho width of tho lodge, which
is solid peacock ore in a white quartz
from tbe graas roots down, carrying gold
and native copper. Tom says that during the past ten days he has had a
force of mon at work starting new openings on the property, and as a result of
the work had struck three new oro-
bodios which are much bettor than the
one they have been working in the main
shaft. Assays are being made from
Bamples taken from those new openinge
and if the result comes up to expectations he will be able to convince anyone
that the Pathfinder is the making of one
ot the beet paying mines in the province.
It we had a few more such rustlers as
the boys it would be much easier to convince the railway companies that thi-ro
is plenty of tonnage to be had from this
locality.
Lake Properties Change Hands.
Hon. Joseph Martin, ex-M. P. and Mr.
Smith Curtis, both of Rossland, olosad
a deal at Christina lake last Saturday,
whereby the well known St. Elmo, belonging to Mr. Hutchinson, became the
property of the above named gontlomen.
The terms ot the deal, as near us can be
learned, are as follows: A working
bond of $50,000, of which a percentage
wae paid at the timo ot sale, balance in
six and twelve months; with a conditional clause that work is to bo prosecuted on this property continuously until
tbe bond is lifted.
It is fully oxpected that this deal will
lead to more capital being interested in
tbeCbiistina lake section at once, as
by the development of the St. Elmo a
rich proposition will be thrown open to
public inspection.
Struck it Rich.
The   Raulston   boys who have  spent
the   entire   summer in  developing the
Diamond Hitch and a number of other
North Fork propertios. unearthod a rich
body of ore this wejk on the Tiger, situated on Pathfinder  bill.   The ore ie
roported to be of the same goneral char-
actor aa that taken  from the Pathfinder
and as far as  richness is  concerned  in
gold and copper, as said to bo far superior to anything  found on  the hill  yet.
Tho lodge has every   appearance of being largo and if the oro  improves  with
depth as is generally tbe  case  with all
properties opened up on the North Fork,
the boys hare something that will prove
to be a money-maker for  them in time.
Commenced Work Again.
The English and French Gold Mining
company have let another contract for ,
the running of 35 feet of tunnel on their
property in  Freuch camp.   H. P. Toronto has the contract and is pushing
the work as  rapidly as possible.   The
work   is   being   done on   the  Bonanza'
claim on which there already is a tunnel j
85 feet in   length.     From  parties  who j
just   came down  from tho company's
works it iB learned that a large body ot
very rich ore has been struck.    The
nature of this  new  strike is  not mado
public at this time.
Around Christina Lake.
A. K. Stuart, agent of the Midway
Townsite company, was an arrival on
Wednesday evening's stage from Cascade Citv. Mr. S. has been spending
several days at Christina lake, whore ho
has large property interests, and reports
that section full of life and activity. Ho
Days that a good deal of development
work is being dono there at present with
most encouraging results aud tbo universal opinion seems to bo that a large
number of the properties in that locality w^l prove to be shippers whon fully
developed. Already the samples ot ore
to,ken from there aro attracting tho attention of mining men from Roasland
and elsewhere and several large deals
are now under negotiation, which if
consuiijated will aid much toward giving
that eection the promiuce that it is
justly entitled to.
Mr.  Stuart  /eft for Jhome yesterday
mornipg.
Putting in Machinery.
Mr.   Frank    Ilemiuinway,   who   has
charge of tlio  development work  being
I clone on tho Ironsides and Knob Hill, iu
Greenwood camp, passed through towo
Wednesday on his way back from Mar
cue where lie hud been to superintend
tlio loading of the machinery to be put
' ill on these properties. The plant consists of a boiler, steam pump and   hoist
1 ing apparatus, which is now on the way
between this eity and Bossburg. On its
arrival at the company's property it
will bo placed in position as rapid'y as
the work can be (lone and a largo force
of men will be put to work getting out
ore to be ready for shipment as soon as
tho railways reach here. The showing
already made is far beyond the expectations of the owners, Frank Craves,
tho president of the company which
owns these properties, is expected to
arrive from Spokano about the tirst of
noxt month to inspect tho work already
dono.
Will Lead Them All.
Jim Reeder, tho good mixerolcgiet
who presides over tho destiny of Van
Ness' bar, accompanied by J. 11. Walker of Rossland, returned Wednesday
afternoon from a week's tour ot inspection of the North Fork and Pa6s creeir
districts.   During their trip they visited
| the B. C. und several other properties
in Summit camp and the Pathlinder,
Diamond Hitcb, Bonanza and a number
of other North Fork mines. The boys
are enthusiastic over tho showings made
on thuse properties and say that with
half of tho work done on them that has
been dono on tho mines at Rossland the
Grand Forks district will rank second
to none in tho provinco and the number of its shipping mines will bo double
that of the Trail district.
Will Apply For Crown Grant.
Frod Wollaston, pr ivhioial Hind surveyor, is busy this week surveying the
American Eagle, Babe and Monte
Carlo, situated on Hardy mountain,
Considerable work has already becn
done on these properties, which are to
bo Crown granted. They belong to
Hugh McGuiar and othe.s of this citv,
Doing Assessment Work.
Messrs. McFarland, Ralfa and Lang-
ford are doing assessment work on the
Dickinson fraction and Union Juck,
These claims are located on Pathfinder
hill and lie between the celebrated
Pathfinder mino and Diamond Hitch
and tho character of ure found is the
eame as thut taken from these ininos.
THE CHRISTINA CLAIM.
(Sends a Representative to Ontario —
! a Promising Property.
i    J. W. Fear, of   Waterloo, Ont., left
for home today to represent the  Kottle
! River Mining tic Development company
of   British   Columuia.   This  compa.iy
owns tho Christina mineral claim on the
north fork of   tha   Kettle   river,   near
Grand Forks, which  has  probably the
largest high grade vein of free   milling
ore yet reported.—Rissland Miner.
This is the property located near tho
Volcanic, upon which it was roported a
short time ago that a stamp null waB
soon to be erected. The ore is strictly
free milling and tho Christina gives
promise of being ono of the big money
makers of the North Fork.
Kicked by a Cayuse.
Mr. E. Spraggett mado his appearance
upon our streets this week sporting a
cane. At first it was thought ho had
joinod the Society of Dudes, but enquiry revealed tho ti~t that such was
not the case. Tho necessity for the use
of a cano arose from his placing too
much confidence in the gentleness of a
cayuse w bich had beon turnod loose in
tho barn Last Sunday morning ho
went into the barn to catch tho animal,
intending to rido down to Mr. Manly's
ranch where ho oxpocted to commence
threshing on Monday morning. On approaching the cayuse it wheeled and let
fly with both hind feet, striking Mr.
Spr aggett on tbo loft leg and inflicting
two bad gashes. Dr. Hepworth wcb at
onco sent foi and found it necessarry tn
t ake several stitches in the cuts. Although Mr. S. is able to hobble arouud
it will bo some time before ho can do
any work.
Want a Registrar.
A petition, addressed to the attorney
general of British Columbia, praying
that a deputy registrar of the county
court be appointed at Grand Forks at
once was numerously signed in the city
yesterday, and duly forwarded to the
proper autho.ities.
There is no question but that the
time has now arrived when the appointment must be made and we hope the
authorities at Victoria will Jose no timo
over the matter.
Lumber Por Eureka.
Mr, Spraggett closed a contact this
week for the furnishing of 25,000 feet of
lumber and 20*000 shingles to be used
in Eureka camp. Hie purchaser being
Mr. Rinear. 'this lumber js to be used
in putting up a building for Messrs..
Clark and Struck to be usyd as a company store. A few more such ordert as
this and both of our sawiv'lla will be
kepj bt'By,
NO  POLITI
Connected With Hon. D. W.
Higgins  Visit.
AN INTERESTING TALK
Mr, Higgins Is   Impressed   With   the
Need of a Kailroad Here   Be-
leives   Tale   Will  Bo
Divided.
Hon, D. W.. Higgins, speaker of tlio
lower house, is in the city, having arrived Thursday evening from Fairview
where he has mining property which
haB been claiming his attention, Mr,
Higgins'last visit to Grand Forks was
on December 8 of last year, and in the
snort time which haa elapsed between
that date and this, the appearance of
| the town has materially changed. Ip
speaking oE the improvmecte Mi<:. Higgins said:
NOT WHAT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN.
"Vou bav-o hud a good growth, but it te not
what ii should have been. 1 believe that hud
not the subsidy of $i,0UQ per mile been defeated
in the assembly, Grand Forks wo aid today huve
12001 inhabitants tnore than she now possesses.
That was a sad blow to all this section, but one
from whloh it will recover with the advent ot
railway transportation•
"There in hound to he a city here, as I eame
in from Fairview over that long tedious drive
through woods and over lulls, and came into
view of ihis grand vaUey, with its stretches of
prairie laud, yellow fields in which the grain
was standing in shocks, pretty country homes
nestling in green chumps of trees, ami bcyoud
them the towu of Grand Forks marking the
junction of the two great water-wuys of this section, 1 was more than over impressed with the
belcif that here Is the ideal locality for a city.
Hack uf all this natural beauty is a woudmi'ul
mineral resource whicli, however, will he forced
to IW dormant until the means are furnished
for transportation.
WAS KOT GRAHAM.
"I see hy your paper that Hon. G. B. Martin
said in the course of liis remarks here last week
that Mr. Graham, the member from this d.strict,
moved lhe amendment tliat killed the railway
hill. This statement was no doubt an unintentional error on tbe part of Mr. Martin. This
motion was not made by Mr, Graham but by another member of the opposition. It was, however, supported by Mr. Graham.
ANYTHING BUT POLITICS.
"No, 1 know nothing new on the railway question beyond what has appeared iu the daily papers. Mr. Shaughnessy ol the Canadian Pacific
is, 1 understand, coming to visit Grand Forks
and you can get from him all the railway news
there is.
''I dont want to say anything about politics.
I didn't.come hereon a political mission and it
i.s too early in the day to he discussing political
issues. Let us stick to mining for a while yet-
and above all, let every man, woman and child
pull together for a railway. That is one factor
that is absolutely essential to the development
of this section. Locally, it doesu't make much
difference where the road comes from or who
builds it.
HAS A GREAT FUTURK,
During my trip hero 1 was particularly pleased
with what I saw at Fairview. In spite of the intensely hot weather, mining was, and still is he
ing prosecuted extensively in ihis camp. The
Smuggler mine is doing good work now. its
owner having recently cleaned up$1,1500 iu gold
on the plates after an IS days run, with the gold
In the batteries and concentrates still to bo secured. This ore yields $1" in gold to the ton.
and Considering the enormous amount of ore in
sight it is a big proposition. The Tin Horn property has been opened up by three tunnels with
good results A stump mill on Ihis claim will
he running within three weeks.
"Building iu Fairview iu progressing ami 1
should judge it has a popula.lon of 400 ut present." . .
IN FAVOR OF DIVISION.
"What is your opinion in regard to dividing
Vale district?"
"That is a question which is being considerably agitated «ll over tho district, and I beleive
that the division will he accomplished, Where
the Hue will be drawn 1 cannot of course say.
Tho district is undoubtedly too largo at pro-
sent."
Mr. Higgins represents Esquimau district In
the legislative assembly ot which he has been a
mumtjei for the past, thirteen years, Since lsiiti
he has been Speaker of the House, having three
times been givtn this honor hy a vote of acelam-
tion. He is tine of tbe pioneer residents of the
province, having come to Vancouver island
forty years ago. Naturally he has an unlimited
fund of historical, political and social anecdotes
Which enhance the attractiveness of his exceptional conversational powers.
Council Doings.
An adjourned meeting of the city council was
held last Monday, with Alderman Hepworth in the chair. The sidewalk
by-law was taken up for consideration
aiid after being read tbe third timo went
over according to the rules until the next regular meeting. Alderman Davis then
introduced the matter of lessening the
expense of tne free convoy. He stated
that at present the city was providing

Tho French have an adajje which
translated means "Evil to him who
evil thinks."
'J he Boundary (.'reek Times of (lieen*
wood, in Its latest issuo, gives vent to
the following:
A FAKE INTERVIEW.
"Tho Qrand Forks Miner has a penchant for
interviewing ovory pe:sou that visits the city.
No one escapes the Indefatigable reporter of the
Miner. Tho unsophisticated visitor may thiol;
he does because he h..s neither seen nor heard
of a newspaper man but if he re,tils the next
week's issue of the Miner he will Und that the
ubiquitous reporter has secured him us a victim. The habit of writing nu interview out of thu
petsou Interviewed is generally a harmless one
for It helps to fill up and the Miner lins plenty
of space, it was scarcely fair, however, to
make a victim of School Inspector Burns, in
the latest iHsuc of the Miner lhat gentleman ex-
pressed very decided opinions on the futuro of
Grand Porks, the railway situation aud the
political outlook. Now we know Mr. Burns
personally, and aro therefore safe in stating
that he uever gavo utterance to the opinions
published iu the Miner. He is a public servant,
minds his own business, and has sense enough
to keep liis uiotlLli Bhut whon political questions ure beint,r discussed, 'l'he Miner should
nol thoughtlessly place an employee of the government in uu embarrassing position, 'lie1
Hon. George Ii. Martin will be down there
this week ami us he is a politician anil it public
man, lhe Miner can interview him to lis lie.uts
content."
Kver since it has become certain
that the Minf.h wiolds a greater inllti-
encein Greenwood than t:io insijjnili*
cant Utile green covered ra;,' that io al-
lowod to issue weekly in that town, tho
Times has had the green eye to such an
extent that it has been indefatigable
in its puny way in trying to pick a row
with the Miheb. Some of its attempts
have boon amusing in their childishness and of this class the one repto-
duced above is tbe most ridiculous.
Tho head of tho two-bit offshoot of
the Victoria Colonist, who now poses
us the editor of tho Uroen-eye, is duly
swelled because ite owner is personally
acquainted with School Inspector
Bums. Judging from ita talk, the editor is ono of theso things that :f it
could but touch the coat tail of the
Princo of Wales would bo ready then to
die.
But regarding Mr. Burns. "It is safe
to state'' that that gentleman' will not,
if ho takes tho trouble to read the effusion of the Green-eye, feel particularly
elated ovor tho uciiuainteuceship0which
tho Green-eye's editor takes, so much
trouble to impress upon the public.
"Wo feel safe in stating" that Mr.
Burns never camo near the Green-eye's
olliee and this is another causo tor jeal -
ousy. If "it" could have Boon Mr.
Burns muking several visits daily to the
Miner otlico during his stay in Grand
Forks, it would probably have not survived the shock.
For the benefit of thoso who wish to
know how tho interview with Mr,
Burns was obtained, wo will stato that
he favored us with a taik for publication during one of his visits to the
MINER office, Tho attempted insult to
Mr. Burns implied in the statement
that ho "has Beoso enough to keop his
mouth shut whou political questions
aro being discussed" is too childish to
need to be refuted. Mr. Burns needs
no defence against the chargo that he
is forced to bo silent because he holds
a public olliee.
....... i,.u. „ ... ...„..„ „ ,„.,,^.„.  display
! of the oies of the Grand Forks Mining
j district at tho coming Spokane Fruit
I fair is a move in the right direction,
1 and should meet with tho hoarty co-op-
j eration of every miner, prospector, rner-
! chant and citizen residing in that dis-
| trict. There is no question that with
j but a little exertion on lho part of
these in tho district, a display of our
ores could bo placed on exhibition at
the fair, that would compare favorably,
if not excel! that from anyother district, represented, Tho benelit to bo derived from such a display is incalculable and can only be fully realized by
those of our citizens who wore iu attendance at the fair la6t yoar. Mr. John
A. Perkins, book-keepor at Manly, Averill tic G.i's has volunteered to attend to
tho collection of ere for tho proposed
exhibit, and earnestly requests tho assistance of all property ownorB in tho
district. Every sample brought in will
be properly tabled and arranged so that
due credit will bo given e'/ory claim represented. Mr. Perkins has also undor
preparation a discriptivo pamphlot of
the country, in which the mineral re
sources of tho district will be sot forth
in an able and readable manner. A
largo edition of this pamphlet will be
priutuu for free distribution during the
fair. Any information concerning the
dilleront camps will bo gladly received
by that gentleman as it is his desire
that every portion of the district has
proper recognition.
At thk mooting hold last week the
lion. G. B. Martin, chief commissioner
ol lands and works made tho statement
that Premier Tumor and every member of his cabinet wero heartily in favor
of extending all 'the assistance within
their powor toward tho construction of
a railway from the Columbia river to
Pentieton. If this assertion is true, we
aro of tho opinion, that thero could be
no moro effective way of proving that
they aro acting in good faith in promising, than for Mr. Turner to call a
special session of tho provincial legislature at once, to undo the work of the
last session as far as it related to railways and extend to Mr. Heinze or some
other company sulliciont encouragement
to otiablo him to commence work on
tho construction of a road at onco. A
movo of this character would do more
to stimulate all classes of business and
Would restore that coufl lence necots iry
for the development of any mining district. At present it is acknowledged by
nearly everybody who visits tho district
and by Mr. Martin himself that we
huve one of tlio best mineral showings,
the biggest ledges and largest deposits
of any district in British Columbia,
but which are practicaly worthless, except for speculative purposes, without
transportation facilities. Wo fail to seo
tlie object in deferring action in tho
matter any longor.
Hon. G. B. Martin, chief commissioner of lands and works, who in company with Mr. Leonard Norris, government Bgont at Voruon, has boor, making
a tour of inspection of tho district, does
not exhibit any uneasiness regarding
his futuro political aspirations. He is
froe to acknowledge that whilo ho may
have to put forward a united elfott at
tho election, noxt year ho Booms eonll-
dent that tho result will bo tho same
that it has boon for tho last 16 yoars.
At this timo the Minku is not ablo to
judge accurately whethor or not Mr.
Martin's belief is well founded. 'Ihere
is one thing certain, however, and that
is if some of the alloged noA/spapore
continue their personal attacks on tho
chief commissioner, tho result will bo
to work up a sympathy for that gontlo-
man that could Dot be accomplished in
any othor way, At this time wo have
no desire to enter into a discussion of
the policy of tho government of which
Mr. Martin is a member, but wo believe
in giving credit where credit is due,
and during his visit to Grand Forks, he
used every elfort possible in securing
information regarding the needs of tho
district, and while he was careful in
making promises, he certainly showod
no disposition to slight the claims of
our people. Mr Martin, when questioned concerning tbe reported discussion among the members of the cabinet,
emphatically denied the rumors, saying
tbat Premier Turner and his collogues
were at present, on the beBt of terms
and that no reconstruction of the cabinet was contemplated.
In tiie report of tho meeting held to
confer vi ith Hon. G. B. Martin, chief
commissioner of lands and works, Friday evening of laBt week, the typo
mado us quote Mr, E. M. Johnson, of
Victoria, as saying that "during tho
Inst session of tho legislature Mr.
Heinzo had asked for a subsidy of
$4,000 a mile, bosides his already large
land grant, which roquo3t, owing to tn e
opposition had boen defeated, porBon-
ally he thought tho land grant Bhould
have boen defoatod, oto." It should
havo read that personally ho thought
if the land granted Mr, Heinzo had
all boon agricultural land tho grant
should havo boen defeated, but as there
was comparative little tillable land included in tho grant, he was in favor of
giving Mr. 11. both the land grant and
casn bonus askod for, etc.
The encouraging nows published in
tho SpokesmaD-Iteview last Monday to
the effect that Mr. Heinze contemplated building his projected lino from the
Columbia river to Pentieton and that
work on it would be commenced at
onco, will be road with pleaauro by
thoso who huve stayod with their faith
in the futuro of this section. With tho
lirBt shovel-full of dirt thrown on the
construction of a road into this district, an ora of prosperity will bo inaugurated that will bo wonderful to behold.
According to Beorbohm, the noted
English grain statistician, Europe will
call upon the United States for
$1S5,000,000 buBhels of wheat this year.
This demand is unprecedented. The
highost mark in the United States export of wheat was reached in 1891-2,
when it amounted to 157,280,351 bushels. This unusual demand on the
United States for wheat is almost sure
to bring that tide of prosperity that our
cousins over the line have boen looking
for so long.
The city of Vernon at an election
held Monday August 16th voted to borrow 875,000 with which to establish a
system of water works, electric light
plant and erect a city hall. Out of a
total vote cast of 101, only nine were in
opposition to the water works and city
hall schomos and 12 against the electric
light project, which goes to Bhow that
the citizens of that city realize that in
order to keep abreast with the advancement of the country a progressive policy
must be adopted,
The now railroad from tho coast to
Kootenay points shows that the ('. P-
R. ie making a struggle to control the
business from Vancouver against Spokane. On fifth cIubs goods such aB groceries, hardware, and liquor the cut by
the carload if frnm $1.02 to 85 cents.
This is tho largest cut mado, although
others are very considerable, as for instance on (ith clas3 freight, machinery
from 92 cents to 19% cents and on Ith
class case liquors and such like, S1.0U
to 91 cents.
The Rossland Miner calls attention
to the fact that the recording oRice of
that city will hereafter record only those
mineral locations mado on tho oast side
of the watershed between Christina lake
and Rossland. Those mado on this side
of tho summit will havo to bo recorded
iu Grand Forks. ..    .
The drop in silver is sending a feeling of dismay through the Slocan district. The most noticeable feature
about thiB dowtiward movement is its
apparent lack of any assignable cause.
Silvor is now quoted at 51% cents,
while Mexican dollars are selling at 42
cents.
The customs department has decided
to permit each miner going into tho
Klondyke district to take in, freo of
duty, 100 pounds of provisions, his
blanketB, clothing in use and cooking
utousils.
Thf. price of wheat reached the one
dollar mark in Now York last Friday-

REGARDING AN  EXPORT  DUTY.
Col. Turner Says the Norlhport Smelter
Will Not Be Affected.
Col. W. D. Turner, one of the owners of the
LeHol mine in Rossland, is a lirm believer in the
ore producing capability of thc reservation
mines, Whon asked In Trail reoontly what bis
co.upany would do tf the Canadian government
should out practically a prohibitory export
duly ou ore, ho replied: "Well, we thought of
all that and concluded that if wo couldn't run
tho Northport smelter on LoRol ore, we could
tonilucl it as customs smelter on American
ores. The fact is, Northport is such a good
smelter point that I heartily wish it were this
side of tlie line. If thoy compel us to do so wc
may run two smelters, oue somewhere this side
the line, and rely upou Stevens county and Reservation ores to supply our Northport smelter.
"Tho smelter will be constructed and ready
for treatment of all ores which may corno to it
from auy source whatever by January 1 next
aud there is every reason to believe that by the
time the smeller is completed there, will be furnished from the reservation and other points
contiguous to Northport 160 tons per day."

MR. WILLIAMS' ECONOMY.
"Did it ever oooar lo you that little
Victor is getting to be nearly three
years old?" inquired Mr. Williams,
looking up from the newspaper which
he had not been reading for five minutes.
"Well," said Mrs. Williams, "a« we
have been celebrating his birthday
e\ery month sines he was six months
old, and as we olwrvo-rt it wtekly up
to that time, I suppose it would be
rattier difficult for tne not to remember
the boy's age. Why'.'" with some concern. She had half nu idea that he was
thinking of some wonderfully advantageous scheme for the little one's benefit,
"Well," snid Mr. Williams, "it seems
to me that we ought to be calculating
upon his education."
"Oh, my," his wife cried, laughing.
"Why, he isn't old enou-jh by three
years even to go to thc kindergarten."
"I didn't mean to send him at once,"
snid Mr. Williams, looking proudly at
his offspring, now engaged in thc highly educational pursuit of building a
miraculous sort of tower out of his
blocks, and knocking the edifioc down
and ther, laughing gleefully. "Of course
he'9 too young for that, hu* it seems to
me that wo ought lo begin providing
for the future. We might to start in to
lay by a fund for his education. I want
him to attend college and all tlmt, and
of course that costs money, and po-ssi-
bly misfortune might come just at the
time when we wanted to give him educational advantages, und if wc didn't
have a. special fund to draw upon the
child would have to go through life illiterate."
"I don't think there is any danger,"
Mrs. Williams started to say, but Williams interrupted her.
"Sometimes," he declared, "I am
ashamed ot myself for my spendthrift
habits. Every little once in awhile I
am confronted by the idea that I am
paving the way for starvation for my
family by pandering to the needless little vices which have grown up around
jne. I never deny myself anything, and
some time—"
"Oil, you're a dear old goose, and you
iaven't any vices at all, and wc sliall
get along nicely. Don't get blue about
nothing." '
"I'm not blue; hut look here." He
drew a paper" from his pocketlxwk—a
paj-er covered with figures. Presenting it to his wife, who was always appalled at the sight of mathematical displays, and never could cet at the bottom
of them, he said:   "Look at that." .
"What ia it?" she queried, helplessly.
"The compound interest on the abstract to thc trust, deed of our house?"
"It is shaving," gloomily. "I would
not have believed it myself. But I figured it up on the train to-day, and it
shows an appalling condition. I have
squandered in the last if years $7(16.5')
in shaving—just plaiu shaving, common 15-eent shaving. No frills toil. No
mustache curling or anything of that
sort. Isn't that Ecandalous, and ull tlie
time that boy not knowing where the
money was going to come from for his
education."
"But," said Mrs. Williams, "he wasn't
horn until three years ago."
"The. theory is just the same," her
husband insisted. "It is a vicious waste
of money and I am going to correct it
as far as I can."
"What arc you going to do?"
"I am going to shave myself and
apply the money to a fund for little Victor's forthcoming education. I can do
it."
The next daj- Mr. Williams came
home in high elation. He had several
bunchy-looking little bundles in his
.overcoat pocket, and, unloading them
on the dining-room table, little Victor,
•iis is the custom of speculative children
of his age, gladly seized upon them, crying- *.
"Papa b'ing me this!" •*
Mr. Williams, who had been hanging
nip his overcoat at the moment of the
seizure, came rushing in from the hall
like a full-back rushing to get a punted
ball.
"Heavens and earth! He'll cut hl9
hand off with thot razor. Grab him!"
he called. The baby had been howling-
ly rescued from impending calamity.
Mr. Williams then explained tbe nature '
<of Wo purchase***,   _ J*__i       . „■!*, '
"This," he said "is a mug. It cost a
dollar, but seven ahaves will save it
back to me. This brush, cost another
dollar—same reckoning. Tbe strop
cost me $12.50 and the sponge 75 cents.
The shaving soap—"
"Oh, now, Harry!" Mrs. Williams interrupted in triumph. "Now I can toil
you where you wasted money for nil
your good intentions. I bought a whole
case of soap at the department store
the other day, and Ida says it's just
magnificent. You can scour with it,
too."
Mr. Williams tried to explain that
there was some difference between
soaps, but she declared that hers made
just as nice lather as one could wish,
and the only difference, she said, was
that he had paid about 50 times as
much, proportionate to quantity, as
she had.

The next morning Mr. Williams started in on the work of economy. He procured a handglass and hung it to thc
wall, only to find when he began operations tliat the glass was invariably on
the wrong side of the light and his hand
always shaded his face. His lather
seemed to be reluctant and watery also,
but those wore minor evils which could
be remedied if he onlv had time, which
he didn't, for his train was due to leave
in half on hour. He lathered on in a
liquid way for several minutes, and
then opened hostilities with his beard.
There is no cause for description oi
the horrible half-hour which followed.
Men who have never learned to shave
and who try it know how thc thing
works, and nobody else would credit
a fraction of the true tstory. Mr. Williams discovered new angles in his
countenance—angles never befcre revealed to human eye. He found that
his razor, although sharp enough to
perform almost any miracle iniuov.ing,
positively balked at his two-dnys-old
stubble, and when he did succeed in
chopping off a dozen spikes at. a. sawing
sweep it was a victory achieved through
floods of blood. He pulled the razor
nnd pushed and worked it crosswise
and gave it every motion to which the
arm is a possible contributor, nnd every
moment a new smarting senst.tion was

it was not. until he had worked his way

Dr. Von Hoist will scon publish the
news far and wide, He wishes to raise
$500,000 for Prof. Von Schroen, that he
can present the discovery in every possible phase to learned men in all quarters of the globe.
Prof. Von Schroen is a Bavarian by
birth. He is 60 years of age and has
spent half his life nnd nearly hia entire
fortune in working out hia theory.
The savant made his discovery by
bringing the strongest magnifying
glasses to llear upon crystals. lie
watched their development. He photographed the results. He has thousands
of these views taken from 14 different
kinds of crystals.
The views show the crystal in its
birth, thc head shoving forth from the
mother crystal and the course is followed as it pushed out and away. Then
in the language of enthusiasm Dr. Von
Hoist said:
"The crystal meets another — one
froiu a different mother. The two
strike at each other, they fight, strive
and clash with coch other. It is war
to the death. It is a cane of the. survival of the, fittest. One must die! No
two crystals from the snme mother ever
fight, however, no matter where they
meet."
All this, the life, the development and
thc contention, is set forth in the views,
so all can. be convinced who see them.
"I am a historian, not a scientist,"
•aid Dr. Von nolst, "so I saw all this,
but as a lnymnn. There is no room for
doubt, however. Spencer and others
have studied my friend's views. They
cannot be mistaken."
Dr. Von Hoist met Prof. Von Schroen
while traveling in Italy recently and received treatment at his hands.
"The sum of $500,000 is not too large,"
he snid; "it iB costly and laborious
work to bring out these microscopic
views. We want thousands made. We
want them distributed through the.

What Vice President Shaugness of tbe
0. P. R. Says ia Tuis Connection—No More Delay
Expeoted-
* party of railroad magnates consisting of Vico President .Shanghnessy, of
the Canadian Pacific, W. J. Sliaugh*
nessy; P. A. Peterson, chief engineer;
Guy Peterson, J. R, Nelson, of Montreal; W. Whyte, manager of linos west
of Fort William; J. McGillivray of Winnipeg; 14. Marpolo of Vancouvor, general superintendent of the Pacilic coast
division; Qeorge McL* Brown; Colonel
Baker, M. p., arrived in Trail last Tuesday and am.* ng other things said in an
interview, tin t pooplo would soon bo
convinced that the C. P. R. appreciated
tho importance of the Boundary conn-
try.
Thero is more in this little statoment
than appears on tho surfaco, It means
that Grand Forks wili have a railroad
and that too without futhor delay. It
confirms tho news (contained in a dispatch from Trail last Monday morning
to the effect that the railroad to Pentieton will bo built, and built immediately.
"Engineors are being sont into tho
field at several points botween hero and
tho tertpinue, and in a few days lleinze's
piost trusled engineer will be in Victoria searching records and securing
right of way. How much tho C. P, R.
js interested is another puzzle, bul tha
public will never bo surprised to learn
that the noojpany has tak-jn over the
entire line. 'Thoy, too, havo engineors
in tho field to run a lino wheroby they
can tap the Trail-Robson road at China
croek or Sullivan creek, and roach Rose-
land. It is well known tnat C. P. R.
has offered to purchase the Heinze
railroad interests, and that Heinze is
willing to sell, but bis prico ie stiff.
However the ins and outs of tho whole
matter may result, there promises to lie
some interesting developments during
tho next few weeks."
Tbe developments came sooner than
the Trail correspondent expected, in the
confirmation of tho boliot by many that
whether the road were built undor tho
name of Heinzo or tho U. P. R. it woul-l
be C. P. R. money that would pay for
its construction. The news that it is to
1)0 built at all will bo welcome to Kettle River and Boundary residents,
whose only hopo is tbat tbe present reports may not prove to bo of so delusive a character as thoso circulated a
phort time ago on the same subject.
TWO RARE 1Y1ETALS.
Lkad Carbon&tk and Nickel Found
on St. Peter's Creek.
Quite an excitemont has been created
on St. Peters creek by tho recent discovery by Chap. RubsjoII and Geo.Washburn of a quartz load which as near as
can be estimated is at least 150 feet
wide, anil from which encouraging assays have been obtained. A pickod
sample assayed $l,r*0 and from an average across the ledgo an assay of Sl.b'O
was returned. 'J hose, for surface assays, are all that could be expected, and
considering the immense size of the
lead, the proposition bids fair to bo a
big thing for Ue owners. The ore is
practically free milling. An extension
pf tho same leal was afterward staked by
Chas. RusBell and Dave Snyder. Sinco
this discovery a number of prospectors
havo been making a thorough examination of this locality and quite a number
of now locations havo boen made.
The leading property of St. Peters
croek at present is the Anchor group,
which has been ctockod by Eastern
parties. The group consists of eloven
claims ovoryjono of which shows a good
prospect in mineral, and upon nearly
overy one of which moro or less work
bas been dono. On one of the claims a
eurface assay of $:(.'! was obtainod, the
value running in gold, silver, copper
and nickel. A tunnol has boen run in
pn tho lodge DO foot, and tho ore now
assays §87. Tho finding of nickel here
in paying quantities but broadens tho
possibilities of the reservation us a mineral country.
St. Peters croek has also produced an
ore which is reported from no other
point on tho reservation, and tho discovery of which will bo welcome r.ews
to smelter rnon. Tho new discovory is
a ledge of lead-carbonate seven foet in
width in a woll defined vein and between walls of porphyry and linje. An
assay of the oro from the surface shows
that it carries 30 ounces of silver, 34 in
gold, and a large percent lead, The
value of this find can bo appreciated
whon it is understood that ore of this
character is so valuable to sraelterB for
fluxing purposes that as a goneral rule
they not only treat tho ore free, returning to the snipper tbe values obtained
from it, but in somo cases they pay all
costs of transportation from tbe mine
to the smelter.
Messrs. Russell and Washburn, with
M. J. Cochran, also staked a claim
showing tbe same character of oro as
that found in the Anchor group.
Their ledge is paid to be 18 feet in
width.
The owners of the Anchor group
have qonetructe.I seven miles of road
From Indian Eneas' ranoh to their property, and have flnishod it second to no
road on the reservation, Eneas' ranch
is several mile/3 north from the point
where St. Peters creek empties into tho
Curlew, but distance ie paved by going
across country from his ranch to the
bead of the croek.
One of the leading claims of this locality is the Mnldoon, about four miles
the moijt^ of  St.  Peters  creek,

THE SAWCHLL  GOES IN,
The Sawmill For the Repucljc Mine
Went Thkough This Week.
The machinery for the Republic, sawmill
should be on the ground in Eureka tomorrow
evening if the freighters now on the road between Nelson nud Eureka with thc outfit
have no further accidents. They were der
layed in (irand Forks nearly half a day on
Tuesday through the breaking of both rear
wheels of the wagon on whioh the boiler was
being carried. The wagon stood thn roughest part of the trip in good skiijie, and then
collapsed on the comparatively level ground
just outside the town of Grand Forks. New
wheels were procured and a. freelj start made
Tuesday evening. Tho boiler is a 25 horse
power concern weighing 8,000 pounds. The
balance of the mill muuliinery is hauled with
two six-horse teams and four wagons.
The maohiuery is being brought in under
tho supervision of Pat Walsh who will have
chargo of erecting and operating the sawmill. When it is in operation tbe first work
will be to cut lumber for a flume along Granite ereek to tho site for the mill for working
the Republic oro. The flume will be 8,000
feet in length and by the time it is built arrangements for thc mill will have been completed and the machinery will undoubtedly
be on the ground. The grading for the
Hume has all been done.
The sawmill will probably not settle the
difficulty in the camp relative to procuring
lumber, us under the mineral law the Republic company will not be allowed to cut lumber
for sale, but only such as ie necessary in developing their properties. It is hold by
prominent men of tbe camp, however, thut
parties wishing to havo lumber cut will bo
permitted to haul logs from their own property and have them sawed into lumber.
According to an interview In Spnknrie with
Chas. llobbins, who has beon directing work
on the Republic mine, the order for the mill
hns probably by this time been placed,
l'uteey Clark, one of the owners of the Republic, has been making quite a tour
studying the various milling processes and
endeavoring to ascertain which would be
best adapted to working the Eureka ore.
He was in Butte last week and was to be
joined there this week by B. 0. Kingsbury,
the two then going to Marysville, Mont, to
inspect tho cyanide process used in
working over the tailings of the Drumlum-
mnnd. Samples of the Republic ore havo
been Bent there for a mill test and Sir. Rob-
bins is of the opinion that the cyanide
process in the best for the Republio ore.
Regarding the development of the mine Mr.
Robbins snid:
What wo call our north or No. 1 shaft is in
140 feet on the incline. About 2!50 feet north
of that is shaft No. 2, which is in 40 (eot. A
tannel 230 feet in length connects with No. 1
shaft, und we are drifiing from this north
and south op the lead about 50 feet in each
direction. Last Monday wo started another
tunnel on the east side of the hill which will
give a depth of 275 feet on the incline and
which wus iu about 80 feet when I left. This
is to bo our main working tannel and after It
is completed we will have to eink."—Peser-

Another Quartz Strike.
D. M. Snyder and Chas. Russell a few days
ago made a locatiqn near the Curlew store
tbat promisee to becomo a valuable prop-
rt y.    Thf !ead equsiets  of a porphyrpt)P
quartz very similar to the surface rock at
Eureka and although as yet no assays have
boen had from the rook, it has the appearance of carrying good value. Mr. Snyder,
who was one of tbe first locators in Sheridan camp on ' Toroda creek und who hue
done extensive prospecting, says he would
as soon take chances on developing this
lead as any on Toroda creek. It is strange
that the ground had not before bren located
ns the lead is exposed in places for 500 feet
and is adjacent to the road just a short
distance south oi the Curlew store.—Reservation Record

The Firemen's ball last night was » very
