Some doelor hns discovered that
women who wear low shoes are in

' The Attorney (Joneral of Massachusetts bas suggested that trials for certain criminal offences be held in secret, thus shutting ont prurient Idlers

The railroads of thu United States
expend In a year a sum more than $100,-
000,000 lu excess of the tolal expenditures of the United States Government,
and this computation does not Include
nearly ■P200,000,000 paid lu the form of
Interest upon railroad bonds or guaranteed stock and from $80,000,000 fo
$100,000,000 paid In the form of dividends to stockholders. The railroads.
Indeed, are the great disbursing agencies of the country, handling never less
than a billion dollars In a year and disbursing It all, or practically all, for
railroads as a rule do net keep large
bank accounts, nnd do practically a
cash business, turning money rapidly.
It Is neither the ease which wealth
gives—for riches as often bring carklng
cares with them—nor yet asceticism,
nor yet athletics, which enables men
to reach advanced years. While the
controlling Influence Is so obscure tbat
we may not confidently assume to point
It out, we think It will be found tbat
the possession of a clear conscience
toes as far as anything to prolong a
man's life.   The worries of Ufa," which
wear out nervous force, lose their grip
upon one who Is at peace with his conscience, and as a general thing those
who live the loiig.-st huve possession of
this vital resource.
The trading-stump usually buries In
Its pull-ons both the sense of humor
and that of proportions. A woman recently stopped a street car after paying ber fare, and took a return car
home to get a forgotten trading-card
before making some trilling purchases.
The price of the extra fares exactly
balanced the value of the "gift" ou live
dollars' worth of goods. The law
against traillng-stnuips may he unconstitutional, but It Is n moral protest
against the habit of trying to get something for nothing. Moreover, cousld
eiiug the reul valuo of tlie "gifts," the
something ls usually less thnn nothing.
GLANCE ABOUT MINING CAMPS.
We are apt to laugh at Russia for so
loug persisting in the use of the antiquated calendar which was prescribed by Julius Caesar, and which
is now twelve days behind the calendar in use by other civilized nations,
but Itussia Is uow golug not only to full
lu line with the rest of tlie world in
her mode of reckoning time, but to take
another Important step in advance—a
step from which America, progressive
In most other things, shrinks wllh all
the timidity of a child urged to take his
lirst dip In the oeeun. Itussia has decided to adopt the metric system of
weights and measures, thus leaving the
United Stutes aud Great Britain the
last of civilized nations to retain the
old-fashioned arbitrary method of
weight and mensuration. It has taken
Itusslu 310 years to adopt the Gregorian calendar: let us hope It will not be
quite so loug before the United Stutes
adopts the metric system.
The candidature of 1'rluce George of
Greece for tlie governorship of Crete
is a slHklng Illustration of the personal
relations of the reigning houses In
Iflurope, lie wrote it letter lo his cousin, the I'lmperor of Itussia, risking hlm
to support his claims. The Kmperor
ut once adopted him as the Russian
candidate. They nre not only cousins,
each belug a grandson of King Chris*
linn IX, of Denmark, but are also Intimate friends of nenrly the same age.
They were companions iu a Journey
around the world, and Prince George
Ity his coolness and courage, hud saved
his cousin's life from uu assassin's attack ill Japan. A personal appeal for
support could not be disregarded. The
governorship of Crete has remained un
unsettled question since the wnr between Turkey und Greece. The Euro
peiin powers, while pledged to protect
the Island, uud to reform lis govern
ment, hnd been unable to agree upou a
candidate for governor. One name aftei
auolher had been proposed, ouly to be
rejected. The wily Siiltun objected on
general principles to every candidate.
When Nicholas II. ordered his ministers to propose Prince George's name,
the slgnltlennce of the nomination as
the persoual choice of the sovereign
was perceived throughout Europe.
France, as Russia's closest ally, at onee
-supported the Candida I ure. Lord Salisbury seconded It gladly, especially at
the Prince was the nephew of the Princess of Wales. Italy acquiesced. Tlie
niiiiiiilc of the Kaiser Is not yet fully
known. Greece had plunged Into war
111 older to liberate and annex Crete,
and had beeu disastrously defeated.
The appointment of a son of thu King
of Greece ns governor of Crete would
be a considerable victory for the pros-
Irate little klugdom. Tlie Siiluiu refused to consent to 11, uud appealed
to the German Emperor. Itusslu ut
once applied pressure by demanding
the payment of arrears of Interest on
the unpaid war indeninlly coulrncted
by Turkey In the campaigns of 1877-8.
Whenever the Sullnii Is obstinate, he
Is forcibly reminded Hint Turkey owes
Itussia a great deal of money. This
candidature, which will at once do
much to retrieve the fortunes of
Greece, nnd will offer n practical solution of a troublesome question of European diplomacy, Is the outcome of the
Intimate relations of the two cousins,
who were together In the fnr East, ln
the same way the German Emperor,
In eulerlug upon a diplomatic and naval campaign In China, commissioned
his brother to visit Queen Victoria at
Osborne. Prince Henry Is a favorite
among thu Queen's grandsons, nnd In
consequence of Ills visit more friendly
relations between England and Germany have becn established. Whatever may bo the rival policies of Itussia aud England In China, the family
relations of the two courts lend to promote compromise nnd pence. Nicholas
II. has married a granddaughter of the
Queen, aud ls strongly influenced by
bis mother, who ls a sister of thc Princess of Wales.
Itest In Change.
The next best thing to taking a summer or winter trip ls to change the aspect of one's home twice a year. Such
change does nol Imply a domestic upheaval Involving great work, family
discomfort and general wretchedness
for a week or more. It simply means
what any woman enn accomplish with
ease, taste and taetfulness, supplemented by ordinary "general clenulng dny"
effort ou the part of the housemaid or
maldofiillwork.
No woman who lias not tried It can
conceive of the rest aud pleasure resulting from such changes. Monotony
ls deadly to bodily and mental health;
possibly to spiritual well-being also. A
change of environments, eveu If to others less attractive, Is beneficial, simply
because It. Is a change.—Woman's

Tide Heeds I'nsst'tl lu llie I'urclinrie
of lhe Whitewater Mine—The Sylvanile ( ninn lu Mouluuu—l'lueer
Woek ou the Salmon—Transactions In lied Mnriiilulu Properties.
Kaslo, it. C, reports thut the entire bnl-
unce of the purchase price of the Whitewater mine was paid over in cash, und the
title deeds were passed, by virtue of which
the property comes into tho possession of
tho Whitewater Mines, Ltd., the flotation
of which wns recently successfully completed iu l.on.I.m by the managers of the
! London and liritish Columbia Gold Fields,
j Ltd. The deal was curried out nnd consummated in Kuslo. By the sale tlie two-
tliirds interest of J. C. Eaton of Kaslo nnd
W. 0. Price of East Oakland, Oal., wns
purchased outright for rush, and the one-
third interest of John L. ItetallncU und
Major Montgomery was paid for in stock
of the new corporation. The first payment
on tlie deal was made December 31, with
110 days' tiuie on the balance. The exact
prico is not inutlo public, but it is generally understood tlmt the transfer was made
on a basis of .11400,000 for the entire mine.
Saturday tlie late owners of the Whitewater mine held a meeting iu Kuslo and
decided to declare n dividend approximating If-tOJXK), milking a total of $194,000
pnid ill dividends lo date. Tlie amount of
the dividend today includes the net profits
of the big silver property to the 2nd insl.,
the date of sale to the Whitewater Mines,
Ltd. According to the terms of the contract part of Saturday's dividend goes to
the new owners. The mine is now in
charge of S. S. Fowler, representing the
purchasers, It is believed by some lie will
have the management of the property.
Sylvanile.
The town of Sylvnnite, in tho northwestern coiner of Flathead county, Montana, is a gold camp where there have
been no setbacks, und where new llntls of
value were mude every week during tlie
past prospecting season, with nn abundance of ground yet unprospected that is
doubtless as good us any. The town has
grown from a village of tents about one
yeur ngo with a populiition of 100 to a sub-
stantiul place of ouo inhabitants with
graded streets nnd better buildings thun
ure usually found hi mining camps of a
year's growth. There are several good
business blocks and live hotels, one of
whicli is a three.story structure. There
are two properties that nre sufficiently developed to be culled mines. They ure the
Keystone nnd the Gold Flint. Tlie Keystone is equipped with a 10-stninp mill and
concentrator which nro running duy und
night and working 30 tons of ore daily.
The clean-up is made onee a mouth, und
Substantial gold bricks find their wny to
Spokane with regularity. Keystone ores
run from $4 to $1-' per ton—low-grade, to
be sure, but easily handled, and so abundant that it is a big tiling for the owners.
Tlie Keystone employs about 50 men in
tlio operation of the mine, not including
the ore haulers, wood choppers and others
directly connected with tlie property. The
Gold Flint hns a line new modern mill,
built at a cost of $110,000. Tho plant con*
sisls of a 20-stamp mill, six concentrates,
and a gravity car line 2800 feet long connecting tho mine with tlie mill. The
equipment enables tlie company to handle
70 tons of .1*8 to $12 ore per day. The property is developed to the 200-foot level, and
the ore body is from six to 28 feet wide
and consists of oxides and sulphides. The
bnse ore is treated by the concentrator
nnd the oxides by thc mill. The mine employs about 05 men in nil departments,
Mineral mil District.
A great many Butte men nre interested
near Pony, in tlie Mineral Hill distiict. It
is said moro men thnn ever before nre
working in that section, and tliat from
three to five cnrlouds of ore are being
shipped weekly from this district. Tlie
;lnims tliat are the large producers nre:
The llelle, Summit, Mountain Cliff, Willow Cree, mid Ned. The Watseka mine;
whioh has becn worked by Mr. Miller nnd
Mr. Whipple during the winter, is producing Borne line ore, nnd the gentlemen
will soon begin shipping their ore. The
Wntseka is one of (he old stand-by claims
of Madison county. Seldom a season
passes thut sonic ono does not make a
lucky hit in tills mine, and take out a nice
shipment of ore which pays them handsomely for the time expended, and yet the
vein Is so irregular that a company could
do nothing with it. The ore seems to bc
in pockets and chutes.
A lied Mountain llllliil.
The Gertrude claim, on lied mountain,
in Hosslund, has been sold to un eastern
syndicate. Tlie property wns owned hy a
Spoknnc coinpnny, und the consideration
of tlio sale is half the stock of the new
company, with $40,000 to bo placed in tho
treasury by the purchasers for development purposes. The Gertrude is tlie second claim west of the War Eagle, and adjoins the Number One, You Know, Surprise, and Novelty. The property is but
slightly developed, but it is snid to show
a well defined vein. No work hns been
dono on it for a long time. Wallace Mount
wns president and J. M. Murphey secretary of the Gertrude coinpnny.
On Salmon  Hirer.
The Horseshoe Placer Mining Company
operating on tlio great horseshoe bend of
Salmon river arc engaged in a mammoth
undertaking. They are making a cut of
1320 feet through the neck of tlie horseshoe to turn the channel of the river; 150
feet have been already completed. This
cut when finished will lay bare two miles
of the river bed. Tlie gravel taken from
the cut yields from 00 to 70 cents in gold
per cubic yard. The company proposes to
work all the available gravel of the neck,
and then the bed of tlie stream, which will
undoubtedly prove very rich.
New Free Milling- Cumn.
A new free-milling ore camp is about to
be opened up about twa and a half miles
: up the North Fork from Qrand Forks, B.
C,   The gold-bearing ore is a decomposed
i while quartz.   Joseph Pounder hns just
j received nn assay return which shows u
gold vuliie of $8 in tlie surface cropping of
' the Rose Rod eluim.   There is every indication of this new strike being the commencement of a camp equal to Camp McKinney, as tlie surface ore is identical
with thut of the famous Cariboo mine.
The Monllu.
The Monita, on lied mountain, Hosslund,  has  beeu  purchased  by  the   War
Eagle (,'onsoliduted Mining Company on a
basis of Iii* cents per shure, or about $!U,-
000 for the property.    The Monita wus
stocked for $750,000, uud market quota-1
tions have been from 12 to 15 cents.   The
mine is about 300 feel west of the Wnr !
Eagle and has considerable development!

The War Muffle.
Hosslund reports the transfer of John !
It. Cook's one-fifth inteiest iu the Pilgrim

practically gives thut company the control
of that claim, nnd completes Important
negotiations which huve been in progress I

From the present outlook it will not he
at, all surprising if, before the season o;
181)8 is far advanced, there will be upwards of 1500 quart/, ami placer miners

to Maker City, Ore., uml that tlie yield of
gold for this yeur will surpass tliat of $3,.
000,000 in 1807 by many thousands of dollars.

THE   RIVER VALLEY   RAILWAY.
It now seems thai thy people of lhe
K»'.-.:e Kiver valley and lioundary
country rejoiced too ■^■*>n rva the report, published in the Sprrkesi-ian-Re-
vi-jK-, t0 tlr» tffect that Corbin b-rd got
hii charter, and Ihere still seems io be
sortie doubt lhat it may not yet lie
granted by the dominion parliament.
For several d.iys tVe matter has been
before tbc committee cf tl-,= house of
commons, and on ths 4th u*.st. passed
the ootomitte sta-.je by a vote ol 50 to 30.
This is regarded as practically assuring
its passage by the house. Thc- fnt*.* of
the brll in thc s*rni;y yet remains! to be
sccc. Friends of ths ine.**?ure t.t Ottawa expresi confidence in their ability
t.r gr t the bill safely through 'he senate.
The tact that it is entirely ^different
frcm a.-.\other railway measure before
that bod., inasmuch as 1.0 subsidy or
oi'n.-r other favor ry asked ior, and that
i*. is the (dmost unanimous request of
the residents of Ear; Yalo and West
Kootenay, that the charter be granted,
is having Us weight with thi members,
and there appears to be r.o valid reason
why a man who is asking neither a subsidy nor l,v d giant should be refused
the privilege of building a railway,
Tbe advocates of ibe bill have also
shown that thc construction cf th? Kettle Kiver road would be followed by a
smeller «t. sonic central point in lhe district, and that thi ores oi the country
are of ouch a low grade that Competing
lines are necessary, in order that they
«i.iy be treated at a profit to lho mine
owner.
The situation is a serious one for tbe
people of the Boundary country as well
as East Yale, which have already suffered greatly for the lack ot railway
communication,
Oaring ibe past year profuse promises have been given by the members ot
the provincial government that they
would favor any project that world insure the early construction of a railway
through the district. Now the very
moment tins assurance is given, for
reasons best known to themselves, these
same people have seen fit to condemn
Sir. Corbin's charter, and have made
representations to the dominion government urging them to rofusc it entirely.
Jf we are to be left to the mercy of a
gang of chatter mongers who have no
intention of building a railway, but simply are trafficing in and endeavoring to
sell what is the peoples' right—tire
piovincial government should grant no
subsidy, unless work is commenced
within 30 days from the passage ol ths
bill, and that tbe line be completed,
within 12 months, between Pentieton
and the Columbia river. If it is against
the policy oi the government to allow a
railway to be Built into the Boundary
country unless they give it a bonus—
we say give it to the C. P. R. outright
and not compel that company to pay a
lot of broken down politicians and
schemers a large sum of money in order lhat they may be pcrmittod to build
through a rich mineral district.
UNINFORMED,
The lioundary Creek Times in its issue of March 26th, referrs to the division
oi the duties of collector of inland revenues in a way that makes it apparant
that that paper is not possessed of the
fullest information on the subject.
The facts of lhe case are simply that
the distance between Grand Forks and
Greenwood is too gieat to allow ope
ESTIMATES.
To Much Justice and Not Enough Public
Improvement.
Commenting on the estimates brought
down by thc government, the Boundary
Creek Times says:
"in '.he estimates brought down in the
house la,t week, $1,200 at Midway and
(900 at Uraud Forks is set apart under
the head ol adoiinistraiion of justice.
A fence is lo be built at Midway around
tie govetnin-rr.i buildings, at a cost of
$200. Cascade is to get a lock-up co.'.-
ing Hoo. A sum ol £700 is set npait
this year lor building a schoolhouse at
(.ireenwood. This is sappieinyrnary t>
the jUoo voted last year. Tne resident
physician at the hospital receive* JS300.
Altogether, Boundary district is down
in toe estimates ior *E6jo lor public
works, -J7JO for a school buii.ling and
{,30c fur a doctor, wm 1 the administration of justice wiil eust for the same
district -52,100, or j,6oo tor public woiks
aud $2,100 for ju-ncc. The item ior
justice docs not include three constables, one each at Midway, Greenwood
and Giand Fo.ks, which will raise the
justice column about $2,500 more, or a
lotrrl of justice of about $4600, and
.    $600 for public woiks.   Thc $600 might
fore.    The  people  cf  tbc  Boundaryj J«t as well be placed under 'he head

"We want the trade ol the Boundary
Creek country for British Columbia,
and while it may be pett-.-ctly true that
ea-tt-rn merchants can ship iheir goeds
to lioundary creek over Amen.an lines,
Briti-h Columbia will be almost wholly

It is almost a sure gamble that as far
as Victoria and Vancouver are concerned the Boundary Creek tiade is
no'.hing more than a blank
It now begins to look as if the United
S'.ales and Spain wr.uld come together.
According to 'he litest dispatches war'is
sufficient imminent to suit the most bel-
ligent. It has get to a point where no'.hing short of full compliance by Spain
wilh the United States' demands for Cu-
byn lieedom co'ild avert war, and th.it
appears to be clearly outof thc question.
Both in the United Slates and Spain the
war spirit seems to be rising, and bob
governments seems to have ceased their
eil'orts to stem ihe tide.
We REPEAT  what we have said be-
Be Careful.
Tho-e parties in town who are cleaning their premises and burning the rubbish up, should be exceedingly careiul
to sec that the fire is extinguished before they retire at nigh', as often serious
fires have occurred from sparks blown
by suddent gust of wind from a
smoldering fire. The laws of Canada
are such, that in ihe event of a fire, being started in a case oi this kind, the
parties who pot the lire out would be
liable to criminal proserution.

TURN ON THS LIGHTS.
The ^'atcr and Light Plant Will Soon
Be   Ready   to Start up.
All the machinery and appliances for
lhe waler aud electric light plants is
now on the grounds and the work of
putting it in position is being pushed as
rupidly as possible and it is confidently
expected that everything will be in full
winking order, and the entire plant will
be ready to be turned over to the city
not later than tbe first of next month.
Owing to changing the boiler from two
small ones to one large one, Contractor
Dav-y has found it necessary to build
an addition to the power house in order
to accommo imt ths large boiler.
When completi'il the entire plant will
present an air ot stability and will add
much to the appearance of the  city.
The second car load of water mains is
now in Marcus aud will be brought to
the city as rapidly as possible. Owing
to changes from the original plans of
the water system this second car load of
pipe was made necessary. People who
claim to be competent to judge, and
have examined the plant, pronounce it
first-class in every respect, and state
that it is ot sufficient capacity to supply
a town of ten times the size of Giand
Forks.
Smelting Boundary Ores
"The statement is authoritatively
made," says tbe Spokesman-Review,
"that if Mr. Corbin builds bis Boundary
Croek extension, smelters will be erected
in that district for the treatment of its
ores. Spokane will be glad if tbat is the
case. It will rejoice in the quick ar.d full
development oi the mineral resources ol
that section, and so lar as its own interests are com erned, they ceitair.lv will
he as well seived by the treatment of the
Boundary Creek ores by local smelters
as by their treatment by distant smelters in Colorado. Nebraska and Missouri.
"It is also given ont that when smelt
ers arc built in the Boundary Creek rris-
trir-t. ores from the Colville reservation
will be given such rates that in all probability thev wiil be smelted at Grand
Forks, in British Columbia. Well and
good. The paramount consideration
should be the development ot the mineral resources on both sides of the international boundary. Tbe greater the
competition, the cheaper the rates of
effing; and the cheaper the rates of
smelting, the fuller tbe development of
the mineral resources, the greater the
profits of the mine-owner, and the more
employment for miners and others.
"It is amr-zing that there should bo
found, upon either side of the border,
persons who cannot or will not see that
monopoly in transportation and smelting
is not calculated lo bring out the full development ol the natural resources of
Washington and British Columbia. It is
still mole amazing that a single person
should be f.iund to advocate the bottling
up of a great district until some favored
railroad finds tbe leisure and the means
to build into it. It is singular that all
cannot see tl.at the building of Corbin's
road into Boundary Creek, and the extension of ihe Canadian Pacific into
Washington, will assure a fuller development of ths resources of the Pacific
northwest "

WOLLASTON,
Tue report on the Grand Fcrks-Ket-
tle river Mining division of Vale district by W. A. Carlyle, provincial mineralogist, is rather dissappointing. It
would seem lhat Mr. Carlyle gave but
a hurried cxaminatian to ths minc--
and mining camps of the Boundary
country, and consequently feels ra'her
backword about committing himself by
any statements in the way of a straight
forward recomenda'ion of the district.
If it were not for the fact that Corbin is
about to build in hero.Mr.Carlyle's report
would be a splendid article lor use by
the C. P. R. in delaying construction of
their line for another year. It would
6eem better-to the ordinary mortal-that
should a public official not bave sufficient data to enable him to spoalc absolutely in regard to a matter of this kind,
that he defer reporting until he ha«
got it, or leave it undone altogether.
and a  complcie   re-orgauieatton   take
place.
Deith of Thomas Capsey,
Mr. Thomas Capsey, who was seriously injured by his horse falling while
rounding-up stock a week ago last Monday, died from the effectB of his injuries
at 10:30 last Sunday evening, and was
burred at 1 o'clock last Tuesday afternoon. Mr, Capsey was well and favorably known in the valley and his aeath
[elilike a thunderbolt on the community.
He is supposed lo be about 34 years of
age and his father resides at Mystic,
Province of Quebec. The funeral
was one of tbe largest ever held
in the valley ihere being some 200 people present.' The funeral services were
conducted by Rev. McLennan, and interment was made in the Presbyterian
ce me.cry.
Locating Depot Grounds.
The unemployed population of the
city, fortunately which is not very heavy
at present, is very busy just now locating
tbc depot grounds for both the C. P..R.
and Corbin's road. Up lo the lime of
going to press, the general verdict was
that the C. P. R. would put their depot
on the property know as the Red Lights
and that of the Kettle River Valley rail
wny be in the vicinity of Spraggett's
sawmill.
Trot Out Your Candidates.
Ex city Clerk Wollaston has been
heard from. In a letter to Johnny
Koough he states that the bill asked for
by the city council of Grand Porks
would be handed down as a government measure this week, and he expected to leave Victoria for home not
later than Friday or Saturday of this
wei-k, armed with tho necessary author
ity for tho calling ol another election.
According to the provisions of tne bill
there will bc no trouble in finding plenty
ot suitable material to have two full
tickets in tbe field composed of men
who will in everyway be qualified to
conduct the affairs ol the city in a mnn-
ner that will be a credit to themselves
and satisfactory to lhe electors.

The  Richest in the Known
World.
CAPITAL     COMING     IN
Vork  on the  Kettle  River  Valley
Railway Will  Have  «  ITar-
vclous Effect.
^Perhaps nosection on theAmerican con
ient—apart from the bubble Klondike
rom—is attracting at the present mo*
ent greater attention than the Bound-
y country, including the Kettle River
d Grand Forks mining divisions of
ile district.
The immense natural resources of
s section have been known for years
','^elackof adequate transportation
facn.i.e*, or the assurance that they
would be furnished within reasonable
time bas had lhe effect of retarding tbe
progress of the district, and preventing
the investment of heavy capital, which
otherwise would have been employed
jn actual development of the rich deposits of ore existing here.
The assurance now given that the K.
R. V. R. charter will be granted, and
the expressed determination of the (.'.
P. R., to construct the extension ot
their Crow's Nest line, west from Robson, passing through the Kettle River
valley to Pentieton, together with the
rushing of survey work on the proposed
line, bas had a good effect, not only locally but throughout the east, and the
U. S. to the south, where the merits of
this portion of the country are well
known. The action of the railway committee of the house ot commons, and the
fact that the government have practically guaranteed Mr. Coi bin his char
ter, leaves no raasonable doubt that
work will be soon in full swing along
the line of that railway, as well as on
C. P. R. line, and that one at least, if
not both these roads* will be running
trains into the Boundary country before
tbe end of the present year.
In addition to what was previously
known by outsiders regarding this section, the recent discussion, over the
K. R. V. R. charter at Ottawa, which
attained much prominence throughout
Canada, has drawn renewed attention to
this point, and has served to emphasize
the general belief in ils tremendous resources.
The statement by Sir William Van
Home, when before the committee in
opposition to the granting of the Corbin
charter, that, that road would divert
during the next ten years $100,000,000
from Canada, and that the Boundary
Creek district was the richest in the
known world, together with the articles
published by the leading eastern papers
referring to the Kettle River section ia
the most Pattering terms, all show that
the dominion is uot only taking a lively,
but an intelligent interest ia this section. That the result of all this is going
tp be a rush from outside points, far and
near, and from the United Slates as well
as Canadian sources, is apparent, and
what is much to the point, is tbat those
wbo come will find upon inspection tbat
the section known as the Boundary
country, justifies tbe estimate which has
been placed upon it.
Locally, everyone is well aware of
the extent of tbe natural resources of
(Le district, and its immense wealth, and
it is a mattor for congratulation that the
outside v/orld has waken to tbe fact
that we have here a district at leest
equal to, and in all probabilitiy superior
to any similar area knows elsewhere on
the globe today.
Nor should the fact be overlooked,
when considering tbe capabilities of the
district that climate and other condi
tions exist which render it a most desirable point in wbich to reside, and that
within the towns already there are all
the facilities necessary to render life
bere both comfortable and enjoyable.
Tbc splendid stretch of agricultural
land along tbe valley of the Kettle river,
of wbich Grend Folks is the natural
centre, with the many fine farms and
excellent gardens, all connected with
the town by good roads, add most materially tc the desirability of this as a
permanent point of residence, and there
is no doubt but possessing these attractions, and surrounded by mineral resources that 9f* acknowledged among
tbe greatest in tbe v/orld, that the near
future of thi place is an exceedingly
bright one.
TO SELL THE PATHFINDER.
j*!*} Say the Shareholders of this Company,
at a Special Meeting.
A special meeting of the Pathfinder
Mining, Reduction and Invesment company, called to be held in this city, at
the hour of noon last Monday, April 4th,

director of the company, and L. A.
Manly was elected to fill tbe vacancy
caused by said removal.

gave promise of becoming a dividend
payer as soon as transportation facilities
were afforded.
Mr. Thomas Parkinson, the president
left for Rossland Tuesday morning, and
the object of his visit, it is understood,
is to close a deal wilh Hon. C. T. Mcintosh, the representative of the B. A.

public.
Wired lor the Stcre'ary.
Geo. W. Ingraham, secretary of the
Patherfinder Mining, Reduction and Investment company, received a disp itch
yesterday morning from Rossland, calling bim to that city immediately on important business relating to the Pathfinder deal. George left for Rossland
this morning.
THE ROSE BUD GROUP.
A Free-milling Proposition up the North
Fork.
This group of claims is situated on the
east side ct the North Folk about ?.}i
miles from tbe city, and in what is
known as Pownder's camp, and tbe fact
that large ledges of free-milling quartz
have been found there, it promii.es to
become one of prominence in tbe near
future. Pownder's camp is a small one
containing some half dozen claims,
known as Jolly, Rose Bud, Moonlight,
Emilia, Alaska and Canyon, the last
five of which composes the Rose Bud
group, and is owned by Messrs. Huntley, Bentley and Pownder, while the
first named is owned by J. W. Jones.
These properties al! contain strong
ledges of free-milling quartz which assays as high as $8 in gold on the surface, At present a force of men are
working on the Rose Bud group, running open cuts and a decomposed white
quartz pay streak fills the entiro face of
the workings. Already local mining
men have made a thorough examination of these properties and pronounced
them most promising, It is the intention of tbe owners to work these claims
all summer by sinking and drifting, and
properties turn out well a small stamp
mill will be erected on the Rose Bud,
where a mountain of gold bearing quartz
stands exposed to view.
Now a Mine Owner.
Mr. Joseph Manly purchased, this
week of Wilson Lucian, a one-third interest in the Columbia, White Rose aud
Arrival mineral claims, in the Pass
creek district. Two assessments have
becn done on the Columbia and it is
claimed lhat with development it will
certainly become valuable. The consideration has not yet been made public, but tbose who are onto thc deal say
that Lucian will have money to throw
at the "birds."

That Is What Pat O'Conner Wants From
Jeff. Davis & Co.
A report bas been current on the
street this week that Pat O'Connor had
entered a suit against Jeff. Davis & Co,
for $10,000 damages, to pay him lor
sliding off the roof of Davis i Co.'s
store building last fall and breaking his
ldg. The suit, it appears, was commenced in tbe supremo court at Nelson, B.
C„ by a lawyer of tbat place, who is to
receive half of the amount recovered by
tbe suit. Up to the time of going to
press Mr. Davis had not been officially
notified ot any action having been commenced.
Was Unsuccessful.
Mr. Jas. Addison returned from Rossland where he went to negotiate a loan of
I5.500 foi the city to run until thc taxes
for tbe present year could be collected.
Owing to the absence of Mr. Eraser, the
manager of the Hank of Bri.ieb Columbia, Mr. Addison's mission was unsuccessful, aud upon Mr, Fraser's return
be expects to try again.
Will Get His Charter.
Mr. Peter T. McCallum received a
latter from Hewitt Bostock, M. P.,
wherein lhat gentleman states while it
is a hard fight, there is no question but
that Corbin will get his charter.

ON'T for a moment
suppose lhat Grand
Forks willbe able to
get along without a
city constable, now
that the advance
guards of the boom
lhat the Boundary
country is going to
the coming
season has core-
menccd to arrive. The first absolute
I indication that this section was going to
experience a ''red hot'' time this season,
was thc arrival in the city, last Tuesday,
of Loid Patrick Freele, a gentleman of
French descent with an Irish accent,
Kis Lordship was accompanied by
hcr Ladyship, Madame Ford, who although an old forty-niner, is still in the
ring. Shortly alter their airival in tbe
city they proceeded to fill their tanks
with North Foik water, which had a marvelous effect. Every additional drink they
took the licher they got. Along about
2 o'clock in tbc afternoon "the man tbat
brolre the bank at Monte Cailo" was a
back number in comparsion with them.
On going down in her sock ior another
$to bill, the "oid gal" discovered that
she had becn "touched" and at once ac'
cused his Lordship of "rolling" her.
This so enraged the sensitive feelings
of his nobility, tbat he gave her a left
handed 'upper-cut," landing on the
right jaw, which sent Annie "to gra.cs''
in a manner that was highly amusing to
the eye witnesses. The idea that the
man whom she was supporting would
dare to strike his "baby" was more than
she could stand. The assistance of
Magistrate John son was enlisted in hor
behalf and Lotd Patrick was locked-up
in order that he might have an opportunity for sober reflection.
While Officer Sbcads was conveying
his man to apartments in the "government refrigerator," Madame Ford was
amusing a large audience on the corner
of Riverside avenue and Bridge street.
She informed the crowd that Corbin had
got bis charter; that she was the first of
a boom that was going to invade this city
and that there was a hundred moie like
her on the road. Everybody that happened to come in contact with her came
in ior their share of abuse. As a "roaster" she stood at the head cf tbe class.
She proclaimed abhorence for the Irish
and the Swedes, and dcclatcd her intentions of buying thc town and fencing it
in for a grave yard, and dared any man
in the crowd to buy hcr a bottle of
wine. About this time Ollicer Sbcads
reappeared on the scene and invited ber
to accept the hospitality of tbe city for
the night. Owing to the absence of the
mayor from the city her lady.-bip very
graciously declined. Upon the officer
pressing the invitation, she consented to
accept and placing her arm lovingly
around the burly form of the office r, and
with her other hand holding up her dress
above the top of her "high-water" boots,
the couple started ovcr the bridge to the
county j.i'l, mid deafening cheers from
tho crowd.
Wednesday morning the pair were
taken before Police Magistrate Johnson
lor trial, who fined tbem the cost, giving
them a good sound lecture, and instructed officer to escort tbem to the city
limits and being "a good thing," to "push
them along."
STILL AT LARGE.
The Man Who Stabbed John Pochette at
Republic Last Week.
The following particulars of the stabbing affray,which occured in Republic last
week and of which a brief mention was
made in the last insue of the Miner, is
gleaned from thc Republic Tioneer:
"J. hn Pochette an It dian, was stabbed
in several places Tuesday night by Peter
Eauoss, also an Indian. The wounds
were ol such a serious character tbat at
one timo it was thought they would
produce death.
"During tbe day Pochette and Eaness
had becn drinking and having what they
consideied a good time. Late in the

Recoid His Bill
Time.
By neglecting to record a bill of sale
it ts likely that Dr. G. VV. Averill of this
place has lost his title to the well-known
Minnie claim near Volcanic mountain.
It seems that Dr, Averill some months
ago purchased thc Minnie claim from
one Dave Dillon, a prospector weil-
known in this section, but neglected lo
put the bill of sale on record, and uow
it seems tbat Dillon only a few days ago
sold thc Minnie the second time to one
D. J. Evar.s, Mr. Evans duly recording
bis deed to the property, thus shutting
the first purchaser out.
The Minnie is one of the best kr.own
claims in Brown's camp and is considered a high gride copper proposilion,
there being  over five  hundred dollars
orth of work done on it consisting of
sinking a sixty toot shaft, besides this
there are other surface woikings such
as stripping nnd running open cuts.

went to look after his interests in that
camp which will require his attention
for two or three days. From Greenwood Mr. Oliver will go to Republic for
the puipose cf closing the deal recently
made by him for an interest in the
Schuster townsite. It is the intention ol
thc company that Mr. Oliver represents

THE   RIVER VALLEY   RAILWAY.
It now seems that the people of the
Kettle River valley ar.d Boundary
cour.try nprccd too soon over the report, published iu the Spnkcsinan-Re-
viev, to tire tffect that Corbin hnd got
his charier, and there still seems lo be
some doubt lhat it may not yet be
granted by the dominion parliament.
For several d lys the matter has beer,
belore the committee cf the bouse of
commons, and on the 4th inst. passed
the ootnmitte sta-.;e b7 a vote of 50 to 30,
This is regarded as practically assurin*.'
its passage by the house. The fate of
the bill in the s-nite yet rciiiain-J to be
sect. Friends of ths incisure ;.t Ottawa express confidence in their ability
t.> get the bill safely through the senate.
The tact tbat it is entirely .dlferint
from ar.vother railway measure before
that bodv, inasmuch as i o subsidy or
other other favor ie tuked for, and thai
it is the almost unanimous request of
the residents of East Yalo ami West
Kootenay, that the charter he granted,
is having its weight with the members,
and there appears to be r.o valid reason
why a man who is asking neither a subsidy nor la* 1' giant should be refused
the privilege of building a railway.
The advocates of tbe bill have nlso
shown that the constiuction of the Ket-
lly River road would be followed by a
Bmeller «t. some central point in tbc dis-
trict, and that the ctes ol the country
are of Buch a low grade that competing
lines are neces.-ary, in order that they
piay be treated at a profit to the mine
owner.
Thc situalion is a seiitus one ior tbe
people of lhe Boundaiy country as well
as East Yale, which have already suffered greatly for the lack oi railway
communication,
Duiinj,' the past year profuse promises have been given by the mey.bers of
the provincial government that they
would favor any project that woi'Id insure tbe e.irly construction of a railway
through the district. Now the very
moment this assurance is given, for
reasons best known to themselves, these
same people have seen fit to condemn
Mr. Corbin's charter, and have made
representations to the dominion government urKinj; them to refuse it entirely.
If we are to be left to the mercy of a
gang of chatter mongers who have no
intention 0! building a railway, but sir.v
ply aie trafficin*' in and endeavoring to
sell what is the peoples' rijjht—-the
p.ovincial govo.-r.ment should grant no
subsidy, unless work is commenced
within 30 days fiom the passage ot the
bill, and tbat the line be completed,
within 12 months, between Pentieton
and the Columbia river. If it is against
the policy oi the government to allow a
railway to be built into the Boundary
country unless they give it a bonus—
we say give it to the C. P. P.. outright
and not compel that company to pay a
lot of broken down politicians and
schemers a large sum of money ir, order that they may be permitted to build
through a rich mineral district.
"We want the trade of the Boundary
Creek country for British Columbia,
and while it n-.ay be perfectly true that
eastern merchants can nhip their goeds
to Boundary creek over American lines
British Columbia wili be almost wbollv
cut off unless a competing line is buill
down from the North."—V'.ctoria Colonist.
It is almost a sure gamble that as far
Victoria and Vancouver are concerned the Boundary Creek trade is
nothing more than a blank.
It now hegins to look as if the Uoit-d
Slates and Spain would come tog. ther.
According to 'he litest dispatches w.ti*;is
sutiicitnt imminent to suit the most hel-
ligent, It has got to a point where nothing short ol full compliance by Spain
with the United States' demands for Cu-
b-u Ireedom co-rld avert war, and that
appears to be clearly outol thcuuestion.
Both in the United States and Spain the
war spirit seems to bo rising, and bo.h
governments seems to have ceased their
eil'orts to stem ihe tide.
ESTIMATES.
We REPEAT what we have said before. The people cf tbe Boundary
Creek country are rot opposed to the
C. P, R. and bave nothing but the kindliest let In g toward that lead, but what
they want is railway competition Iron:
the touth. We realize what competition has done for the Kootenays, and
ice in the Kettic Riier Vail, y railway
an opportunity to secure competitive
freight rates.
QNE of the most surprising features
of the United Staieiy-Spain dispute is
that Spain has not put in a claim for indemnity for the fish the Maine explosion might havo killed in Havana harbor.
To Much Justice and Not Enough Public
Improvement.
Commenting on the estimates brought
down by thc government, the Boundary
Creek Times says:
"In the estimates brought down in the
bouse last week, $I,2QQ at Midway and
$9^0 at Grand Forks is set apari uiidcr
the head ot administration ol justice.
A fence is lo be built at Midway around
tke government buildings, at a cost of
$2ou. Cascade is to get a lock-up costing ?4oo. A sum ol £700 is set apart
this year lor budding a schoolhouse at
Greenwood. This is sapp.emyntary t.>
the fHoo voted last year. Tire lesident
physician at the hospital receives $300.
Altogether, liuund-iry district ls uown
in trie estimates lor -E6x> for public
works, $700 lor a school building and
1,30- lor a doctor, wru e toe administration ul justice wiil cost for the same
district £y,ioo, or $600 tor public works
aud S2,ioo ior ju-uce. The item for
justice does not include three constables, one each at Midway, Greenwood
and Giand Fo'ks, which will raise the
justice coluinn about $2,500 more, or a
total of justice uf about $4600, and
-5600 ior public woiks. Thc $600 might
j 1st as well be placed under the head
oi "administration of justice,'' for $200 j
of it is lur fen. ing a j iii and 1S100 tori
building one. Now llns district is not a
qaarreisome one, and we could get
a oug very well without so much ju*»Ui e
and a littic more public improvement.
Public works will probably be given
more attention in the supplementary es-
tiuintes, and this district will like ly get
a good appropriation Ior roads and
bridges, or at least a fair share of the
$24,000 voted for that purpose in East
Yale.
"For educational purposes, Cascade
Citv is down for salary and incidentals,
$640; Grand Forks, $1,340; Kettle Rivtr,
$743; North Kettle River,$640; Midway,
$742, and Greenwood, $700, making a
total ol $4,904."
Be Careful.
Those parties in town who are cleaning Iheir premises and burning the rubbish up, should be exceedingly careful
to see that the fire is extinguished be-
fine they retire at nigh', as often serious
fires have occurred from sparks blown
by suddent gust ol wind from a
smoldering fire. The laws of Canada
are such, that in the event of a fire being started in a case 0? this kind, the
parties who put the fire out would be
liable to criminal prosecution.

UNINFORMED.
The Boundary Creek Times in its issue of March 26th, referrs to the division
ol the dutiea of collector of inland revenues in a way that makes it apparant
that thit paper is not possessed of the
fullest information on the subject.
The facts oi the case are simply that
the distance between Grand Forks and
Greenwood is too gieat to allow ope
man to be available in the two places at
tbe same time.
Oflen when Mr. Staurt was needed in
Giand Forks to release goods from the
warehouse heie, someone was wanting
htm tn Greenwood for the same purpooe
and 10 prevent any difficulty of the kind
in the future the government appointed
the collector of customs here, collector
of inland revenue; allowing Mr. Stuart
to give his time to Greenwood. It was
arranged for convenience of lhe owners
of goods, and not because ef any fault
found wuh Mi*. Stuart, nor fer the purpose of creating a new office or a new
official.
TURN ON THE LIGHTS.
The Vater and Light Plant Will Soon
Be   Ready   to Start up.
All the machinery and appliances for
lhe water aud electric light plants is
now on the grounds and the work of
putting it in position is being pushed as
rapidly as possible and it is confident.v
expected that everything will be in full
working order, and the entire plant will
be ready to be turned over to the city
not later than the first of next month.
0,vir.g to changing the boiler from two
smail ones to one large one, Contractor
Davey has found it necessary to build
an addition to the power house in order
to iiccor.icioiate the large boiler.
When completed the entire plant will
present an air ol stability and will add
much to the appearance of the  city.
The second car load of water mains is
now in Marcus aud will be brought to
the city as rapidly as por-sible. Owing
to changes frcm the original plans oi
the water system this second car load of
pipe was made necessary. People who
claim to be competent to judge, and
have examined the plant, pronounce it
first-class in evyry respect, and state
that it is ol sufficient capacity to supply
a town of ten times the eize of Giand
Forks.
The report on the Grand l-'crks-Ket-
tle river Mining division of Vale dis*
ttict by W. A. Cailyle, provincial mineralogist, is rather disappointing, It
would seem that Mr. Carlyle gave but
a hurried cxamlnatian to tbe mines
and mining camps of the Boundary
country, and consequently feels ra'her
backword about committing himself by
any statements in the way of a straight
forward rccomenda'ion of the district.
If it were not for the fact that Corbin is
about to build tu hero.Mr.Carlyle's report
would be a splendid article lor use by
the C. P. Ii. in delaying construction of
their line for another year. It would
seem better-to the ordinary mortal-that
should a public official not have sufficient data to enable him to spoak absolutely in regard to a mat'er of this kind,
lhat he defer reporting until he has
got it, or leave it undone altogether.
Should Ecorgaiyir-e.
What has become of the Grand Forks
fire brigade. There has not been a
meeting of the brigade for sevoral
months. At the last meeting held it was
learned tbat some money was in the
treasury. At present should a lire occur
there would be no response from tbe
brigade as an organization for the mem-
j bcrs are greatly scattered, many having
lelt lhe city.   As lor the ladders, buck-
j ets, etc., it would take a Philadelphia
lawyer with a search warrant to find
them. Now that a hose cart and other
upparatuB for thc successful fighting ol
a tire has been ordered and will soon be
here, a meeting should be called at once
of those belonging to the old brigade
and a complete re-orgauieation Uke
place.
Death of Thomas Capsey.
Mr. Thomas Capsey, who was seriously injured by his horse falling while
lounding-up stock a week ago last Monday, died from the effectB ol his injuries
at 10:30 last Sunday evening, and was
burred at i o'clock last Tuosday afternoon. .Mr. Capsey was well and favorably known in lhe valley and his oeath
lei. like a thunderbolt on the community.
He is supposed to be about 34 yoars of
age and bis tether resides at Mystic,
Province of Quebec. The funeral
was one of the largest ever held
in the valley, ihere being some 200 people present. The funeral services were
Conducted by Kev. McLennan, and interment was made in the Presbyterian
cemetery,
Locating Depot Grounds,
The unemployed population of the
city, fortunately wbich is nut very heavy
at present, is very busy just now locating
the depot grounds for both the C. P. R.
and Corbin's road. Up to the time of
going to press, the general verdict was
that the C. P. R. would put their depot
on the property know as the Red Lights
and that of the Kettle River Valley railway be in the vicinity of Spraggett's
sawmill,
Smelting Boundary Ores
"The statement is authoritatively
mude," says the Spokesman-Review,
"that if Mr. Corbin builds his Boundary
Croek extension, smelters wiil be erected
in that district ior the treatment of its
ores. Spokane will be glad if that is the
case. It will rejoice in the quick ar.d full
development or the mineral resources oi
that section, and so far as its own interests are concerned, they certainly wil!
be as well ser/ed by the treatment ofthe
Boundary Cieek ores by local smelters
as by their treatment by distant smelters in Colorado. Nebraska and Missouri.
"It is also given ont that when smelt
ers are built in the Boundary Creek district, ores from the Colville reservation
will be given such rates that in al! probability they wiil be smelted at Grand
Forks, in British Columbia. Well and
good. The paramount consideration
should be the development ol the mineral resources on both sides of the international boundary. The greater the
competition, the cheaper the rates of
smelting; and the cheaper the rates ol
smelting, tbc fuller the development of
the mineral resources, the greater the
profits of the mine-owner, and the more
employment for miners and others.
"It is air.r-zing tbat there should bo
found, upon tithtr side of the border,
persons who cannot or will not see that
monopoly in transportation and smelting
is not calculated lo bring out the full development of the natural resources of
Washington and BritJBh Columbia. It is
still moie amazing that a single person
should be found to advocate the bottling
up of a great district until some favored
railroad finds the leisure and the means
to build into it. It is singular that all
cannot see that the building of Corbin's
ro:*d into Boundary Creek, and the ex
tension of ihe Canadian Pacific into
Washington, will assure a fuller develop,
ment of the resources of the Pacific
northwest "

The
Richest in the Known
World.
CAPITAL     COMING     IN
Vork  on the  Kettle  River  Valley
Railway  Will   Have  a   riar-
velous Effect.
Perhaps nosectlon on theAmerican con
ient—apart from the bubble Klondike
rom—is attracting at the present rao-
ent greater attention than the Bound-
y country, including the Kettle River
d Grand Forks mining divisions of
!le district.
The immense' natural resources of
s section have been known for years
*,*J*e lack of adequate transportation
facii..<£*-., or the assurance that they
would be furnished within reasonable
time bas bad the effect of retarding tbe
progress of the district, and preventing
the investment of heavy capital, which
otherwise would have been employed
in actual development of the rich deposits of ore existing here.
The assurance now given that the K,
R. V. R. charter will be granted, and
the expressed determination of the ('.
P. R., to construct the extension ot
tbeir Crow's Nest line, west from Rob-
ion, passing through tbe Kettle River
valley to Pentieton, together with the
rushing of survey work on the proposed
line, bas had a good effect, not only locally but throughout the east, and the
U. S. to the south, where the merits of
this portion of tbe country are well
known. The action of the railway committee of the house ot commons, and the
fact that the government have practically guaranteed Mr. Coibin his charter, leaves no reasonable doubt tbat
work will be soon in full swing along
the line of that railway, as well as on
C. P. R. line, and that one at least, if
not both these roads* will be running
trains into the Boundary country before
the end of the present year.
Jn addition to what was previously
known by outsiders regarding this section, the recent discussion, over the
K. R. V. R. charter at Ottawa, which
attained much prominence throughout
Canada, has drawn renewed attention to
this point, and has served to emphasize
the general belief in ils tremendous resources.
The statement by Sir William Van
Home, when before the committee in
opposition to the granting of the Corbin
charter, that, that road would divert
during the next ten years $100,000,000
from Canada, and that the Boundary
Creek district was the richest in the
known world, together with the articles
published by the leading eastern papers
referring to the Kettle River section ia
the most Pattering terms, all show thai
the dominion is uot only taking a lively,
but an intelligent interest in this section. That the result of all this is going
tp be a rush from outside points, far and
near, end from the United States as well
as Canadian sources, is apparent, and
what is much to the point, is that those
who come will find upon inspection tbat
the section known as the Boundary
country, justifies tbe estimate which has
been placed upon it.
Locally, everyo-.e is well aware oi
the extent of the natnral resources of
iLe district, and its immense wealth, and
it is t matter for congratulation that the
outside world has waken to tbe fact
that we have here a district at least
equal to, and in all probability superior
to any similar area known elsewhere on
the globe today.
Nor should the fact be overlooked,
when considering the capabilities of the
district that climate and other condi
tions exist which render it a most desirable point in which to reside, and that
within tbe towns already there are all
the facilities necessary to render life
bere both comfortable and enjoyable.
Th? splendid stretch of agricultural
land along the valley of the Kettle river,
of wbich Grand Forks is the natural
centre, with the many fine farms and
excellent gardens, all connected with
the town by good roads, add most materially tc the desirability of this as a
permanent point of residence, and there
is no doubt but possessing these attractions, and surrounded by mineral resources that at--) acknowledged among
the greatest in tbe v/orld, that the near
future of tb 1 place is an exceedingly
bright one.
TO SELL THE PATHFINDER.
jo Say the Shareholders of this Company,
at a Special Meeting.
A special meeting of the Pathfinder
Mining, Reduction and Invesment company, called to be held in this city, at
the hour of noon last Monday, April < th,
was held in the company's office, at the
appointed, time. The object of the
meeting was for the purpose ot trans
acting the following business.
First,—To consider a proposition to
purchase additional mining claims.
Second. —To consider a proposition to
dispose of tbe Pathfinder mineral claim,
and to pass a resolution to dispose of
tbe whole or any part ot the assets of
the company.
Third.—To discharge one Jas. E.
Walker as director of the company.
The meetiriir was called to order by
Mr. Thomas Parkinson, president of the
company, who stated the object of the
meeting.
Upon the call of the secretary it was
shown that 729,000 -shares of the stock

THE ROSE BUD GROUP.
A Free-milling Proposition up the North
Fork.
This group of claims is situated on the
east side tt the North Folk about 2%
miles from the city, and in what is
known as Pownder's camp, and tbe fact
that large ledges of free-milling quartz
have been found there, it promises to
become one of prominence in thc near
future. Pownder's camp is a small one
containing some half dozen claims,
known as Jolly, Rose Bud, Moonlight,
Emma, Alaska and Canyon, the last
five of which composes the Rose Bud
group, and is owned by Messrs, Huntley, Bentley and Pownder, while the
first named is owned by J. W. Jones.
These properties all contain strong
ledges of free-milling quartz which assays as high as $8 in gold on the surface. At present a force of men are
working on the Rose Bud group, running open cuts and a decomposed white
quaitz pay streak fills the entiro face of
the workings. Already local mining
men have made a thorough examination of these properties and pronounced
them most promising. It is the intention of the owners to work these claims
all summer by sinking and drifting, and
properties turn out well a small stamp
mill will be erected on the Rose Bud,
where a mountain of gold bearing quaitz
stands exposed to view.
Now a Mine Owner.
Mr, Joseph Manly purchased, this
week of Wilson Lucian, a one-third interest in the Columbia, White Rose aud
Arrival mineral claims, in tbe Pass
creek district. Two assessments have
becn done on the Columbia and it is
claimed that with development it will
certainly become valuable. The consideration bas not yet been made public, but tbose who are onto thc deal say
that Lucian will have money to throw
at the "birds."

That Is What Pat O'Conner Wants From

A report has been current on the
street this week that Pat O'Connor had
entered a suit against Jeff, Davis & Co,
for $10,000 damages, to pay him lor
sliding oft the roof of Davis & Co.'s
store building last fall and breaking bis

c.d in the supremo court at Nelson, B.

the suit. Up to the time of going to

ON'T for a moment
suppose tbat Grand
Forks will be able to
get along without a
city constable, now
that the advance
guards of the boom
that the Boundary
country is going to
\^, have the coming
season has commenced to arrive. The first absolute
indication that this section was going to
experience a "red hot'' time this season,
was thc arrival in the city, last Tuesday,
of Loid Patrick Freele, a gentleman of
French descent wilh an Irish accent.
His Lordship was accompanied by
hcr Ladyship, Madame Ford, who although an old forty-niner, is still in the
ring. Shortly amr their airival in the
city they proceeded to fill their tanks
with North Fork water, which had a marvelous effect. Every additional drink they
took the richer they got. Along about
2 o'clock in the afternoon "the man lhat
broke the bank at Monte Cailo" was a
back number in comparsion with them.
On going down in her sock lor another
$10 bill, the "oid gal" discovered tbat
she had been "touched" and at once ac"
cused his Lordship of "rolling" her.
This so enraged the sensitive feelings
of his nobility, that be gave her a left
handed 'upper-cut," landing on the
right jaw, wbich sent Annie "to grafs"
in a manner that was highly amusing to
the eye witnesses. The idea that the
man whom she was supporting would
dare to strike his "baby" was more than
she could stand. The assistance of
Magistrate Johnson was enlisted in hor
behalf and Lotd Patrick was locked-up
in order that he might have an opportunity for sober reflection.
While Officer Sheads was conveying
his man to apartments in the "government refrigerator," Madame Ford was
amusing a large audience on the corner
of Riverside avenue and Bridge street.
She informed the crowd lhat Corbin had
got his charter; that she was the first of
a boom that was going to invade this city
and that there was a hundred mote like
her on the road. Everybody that happened to come in contact with ber cr.roe
in for their share of abuse. As a "roaster" she stood at the bead of the class.
She proclaimed abhorence for the Irish
and lhe Swedes, and declaied her intentions of buying the town and fencing it
in for a grave yard, and dared any man
in the crowd to buy her a bottle of
wine. About this time Ollicer Sheads
reappeared on the scene and invited ber
to accept the hospitality of the city for
the night. Owing to the absence of the
mayor from the city her lady-hip very
graciously declined. Upon the officer
pressing the invitation, she consented to
accept and placing her arm lovingly
around the burly form of the office r, and
with her other hand holding up her dress
above the top of her "high-water" boots,
the couple slarted ovcr the bridge to the
county jail- mid deafening cheers from
the crowd.
Wednesday morning the pair were
taken before Police Magistrate Johnson
ior trial, who fined tbem tbe cost, giving
them a good sound lecture, and instructed officer to escort them to the city
limits and being "a good thing," to "push
thein along."
STILL AT LARGE
The Man Who Stabbed John Pochette at
Republic Last Week.
The following particulars of the stabbing affray.whichoccured in Republic last
week and of which a brief mention was
made in the last issue of thc Miner, is
gleaned from thc Republic Pioneer:
"J-hn Pochette an Ii dian, was stabbed
in several places Tuesday night by Peter
Eanoss, also an Indian. The wounds
were of such a serious character tbat at
one timo it was thought they would
produce death.
"During tbe day Pochette and Eaness
had been drinking and having what they
consideied a good time. Late in the
evening they were much the worse for
lrquor, Just how tire stabbing or.cured
and what led up to it, is not known as
only the principtls were present, and the
wounded man is unable to give a lucid
account of the affair, and his assailant is
at large, The two men were wandering
about between the two sections ot the
town, when suddenly the alarm was
given that Pochette was desperately
stabbed. Deputy Sheriff (Jiswoll and
others went to the man's assistance and
helped him tothe door of Dr. Manly's
drury i-tore. This was about 11 o'clock.
Leaving thc wounded man with his companions Gfiswcld statted back to seartb
for Faness. Meanwhile the men left
with Pochette deserted him without procuring medical attendance. Alter lying
on the sidewalk foratime Pochette stag-
gered away and finally reached Ryan's
stables, where he was made as comfortable as possible, and Dr. Webb called.
An examination showed deep knife
wounds on both arms, a ghastly wound
in the left side and a long cut on the leg.
There was a cut on the man's lower lip.
The injured man was very week from
loss of bloo.l.and his life was despaired
of. But vouih, vigor and medical skill
will pull hiin through.

By neglecting to record a bill of sale
it is likely that Dr. G. W. Averill of thia
place has lost his title to lhe well-known
Minnie claim near Volcanic mountain.
It seems that Dr. Averill some monlhs
ago purchased the Minnie claim from
one Dave Dillon, a pro-pector wcil-
known in this section, but neglected lo
put the bill of sale on record, and uow
it seems that Dillon only a few days ago
sold the Minnie the second time to cni-
D. J. Evar.a, Mr. Evans duly recording
bis deed to the property, thus shutting
the first purchaser out.
The Minpie is one of the best known
claims in Brown's camp and is considered a high grade copper proposition,
there being over five hundred dollars
worth of work done on it consisting ol
sinking a sixty loot shaft, besides this
there are ether surface woikings such
as stripping and running open cuts.

to commence the erection of a first-class

THE  IGNORANCE  OF  ENGLISH
Little  Interest Tnken  In  (lie  Scientific  Study of the Subject.
Tho student completes his early training
with as little knowledge of the history oft
his speech us he would have ir it were
Greek, says Professor Mark ll. Llddell In
tbe   April   Atlantic.    Ind I.    he   often;
knows more about Greek than he dues
about English; bo that later on in his educational career, when he becomes a special student of English and makes some |
attempt to read it In its earlier form, he
falls to grasp ihe significance of Its commonest phenomena, because lie will took
at tlnm through the blue spectacles of his
Hellenic culture.
The   consequent  Ignorance   of  English
that is to bo found among the most highly educated men is amazing.    The public
discussions that turn on polnis of "ety- j
mology," pronunciation, or syntax rarely
fall to reveal it.   Men cavil at idioms that
are as  old  aa  the  language  itself,  and i
argue with ono another about questions !
of authenticated fact until  "philologist" j
has almost come to mean "qulbbler."
What wonder that tlie ignorance is so
widespread,     when    so    utile    interest |
la    taken    in    the  scientific    study    of
t lie    subject '*    We    have    now    asso- j
clutions    for    the    furtherance    of    almost     every   doctrine   or   endeavor   con- j
celvable; the collection of postage slumps
has  Us society,   the propagation  of  es-
oterlc Buddhism has Its band of en thu- !
slasts,   tlie  study of Browning's  poetry !
has   Its   cult us,   and   hundreds   of   other j
•objects  and  aims,   trivial or serious,  are j
thrust   upon   the    notice   of   the   public
through the organized effort of unselfish
propagandists.    Bul   there  is  no Amerl- i
ean  society   ur association  in   existence
whose sole object is the dissemination of
scientific  knowledge  of  the  history  and
structure    of    the   language   by   which
all sucli concerted action Is rendered possible and  effective.    Nor aro  we  better
off in  respect  to special Journals.    Germany   has   two   excellent     ones   devoted
solely to tiie scientific study of English]
America and England have none.

j    "What I» an Aurora?' ls the title of
j an article In the Century by Alexander
McAdie.   The writer says:   On the first
. day of January, 1892, Dr. Brendel and
Heir Raschen reached the Allen Fiord,
; Lapland,  to remain  several    months,
studying auroral displays and magnetic
disturbances.    Brendel succeeded    In
| photographing the aurora, a very difficult Uiing to do, as all who bave attempted it know.   The deep reds, which
I ore so beautiful lo the eye, make little
j Impression    on     the    photographer's
, plates, and lhe light itself is generally
feebleand flickering.   Nol unaptly have
the quivering auroral beams been called "merry dancers."   Kven the bright
displays arc hard lo photograph, as we
; may see from an entry In (Jen. (Ireely's

Interest, Long before the now well-
known relations of solar phenomena
nnd terrestrial magnetism had been determined, Sir William llersehol thought
he could, from meager data, detect evidence that the price of wheat wns generally higher at times of few sun-spots,
In later days we have Stanley Jovons

crises aud sun-spots, and a host of writers tabulating the allied phenomena—
of auroras, sun-spots, magnetic disturbances and tracing in their periodicities

While such relations are conjectural,
there Is little doubt that auroras and

Albert Rockingham anil John Dawson had been boys together. Albert hud
always gone to Sunday school and

seven years to the penitentiary. Then

"Su much, Albert Rockingham, for

school!"
Twelve years passed—twelve weary,
sorrow-laden years, during which time
John Dawson made lore to the woman
who hnd promised to be Albert Rock-
Ingham's wife, and collected the rents

Hut Nemesis had nil along been biding her time, and one day, when John
Dawson wasn't looking, she stole up

The pestilential disease which prevailed
bo expensively in Europe during the middle ages, nnd which was known everywhere as the black death, caused an enormous loss of life, says a writer in the
Popular Science Monthly. This disease
Is now believed by epidemiologists to be
Identical with the bubonic plague of the
Orient. No doubt, however, other pestilential maladies, and especially typhus,
or "spotted fever," were confounded with
lhe prevailing epidemic disease. The last
mentioned disease ls sometimes known as
"famine fever," on account of its liability to prevail ,ln epidemic form during
periods of scarcity of food. Typhus was

last century. But there can be no doubt
that bubonic plague was one of the chief
causes of mortality. It continued to prevail In various parts of Europe during
the sixteenth century, and during two-
thirds of the seventeenth; but during the
latter part of the seventeenth century u
became more and more rare, and aflei
the middle, of the eighteenth century its
only permament habitat In Europe appears to have been a limited area in the
southeastern portion, from whicli it occasionally spread northward, without,
however, extending much beyond the limits of the Balkan peninsula. During the
early part of the present century It still
occurred lo some extent In this region,
where it prevailed as an epidemic for the
last time In 1841.
One of the greatest of Australian explorers has passed away, if not "unhon-
ored and unsung," at least In undeserved
obscurity, says the Pall Mall Gazette. For
Ernest Giles well and truly did his share
of the work of lifting the veil of mystery
that for so Ions enshrouded the interior
jf the island continent and his name
stands high with those of such gallant
and undaunted hardy pioneers of colonization as the Ill-fated Burke and Wills, who
lerlshed so miserably. Sir Thomas Mitchell, Sturt, Kennedy, Dr. Eelchhardt and
Sir George Grey, His contributions to our
geographical knowledge of the interior of
Australia were such as should have earned him substantial reward and honorable
recognition, for he devoted the best years
of his life to his work. Tall, muscular
and commanding, silting his horse as only
a born bushman sits, he was the beau
Ideal of a leader of men bent on desperate
and daring enterprise—to tight with toe
terrors of the unknown desert and the
agonies and honors of thirst.
Twenty-live years ago he made his first
success as an explorer, when he led a
party through uu unknown cuntry WW
miles westward frm the telegraph line
that traverses tbe center of Australia
from north to south. A second Journey
initiated by Baron Von Muller, who had
formed a high opinion of Giles' resourcefulness and daring under the most trying
circumstances, resulted In his adding to
the blank map of thc Interior a knowledge
of 000 miles of new country. In this journey he was accompanied by only tour
white men, some aboriginals and twenty
live horses. The hardships they endure
were terrible, and before reaching the
west coast (after being out nearly a year
from their starting point) they had to
kill and live upon the few horses that remained alive.
In 1875 the generosity of Sir Thomas
Elder enabled him to start on a third ex
peditlon, which was amply equipped and
provisioned for 18 months. For hundreds
of miles the route of tho expedition lay
through a sucoesion of fearful waterless
deserts. Fortunately, on this occasion lie
had camels or else he and his party would
never have returned. Once they traveled
for 10 days over one sandy stretch of :u-!0
miles without discovering water. Yet he
brought this daring trip of 2,400 miles to
a successful issue by reaching one of the
outlying settlements in western Australia,
and then, after resting, he struck north
about 200 miles of his tirst route and returned to south Australia. For this Ceat
i.e was rewarded with the somewhat barren honor of the gold medal of the Royal
Geographical society.
Early in 1889 he published one of lhe
most interesting of the many books written on Australian exploration.'"Australia
Twice Traversed." IPs knowledge of the
wild black tribes of the interior was not
excelled by any other muu In Australia,
and equalled only by that of Ernest Fa-

It is gratifying to be able to note,
wriles Dr. Wahl, in the Journal of the
Franklin Institute, the steady growth of
the beet sugar manufacture, which after
numerous efforts In the punt now appears
to be not only firmly founded, but to be
assured of a rapid growth. At the" (-lose
of last year there were In operation in
the United States nine factories, as follows: Rome, N. Y., dally capacity, H00
tons of beets; Lehi, Utah, 850 tons: Norfolk, Neb., !tr>0 tons; Grand Island, Neb.,
860 tons; Alvarado, Cal., 600 tons, and
Watsonville, Cal., 100 tons. The Spreck-*
els interests are engaged in building at
Salinus, Cal., a factory having 80j0 tons
daily capacity and a dozen other new factories in California, Wisconsin, Ken*-
tueky, Iowa and Indiana are projected.
This industry, perhnps more than any
other except the chemical Industries, is
dependent upon skilled scientific superintendence for its successful development
and the circumstance that American
capitalists are still largely dependent on
foreigners for the machinery and superintendence demanded in the business has
proved thus far a serious obstruction.
These difficulties, however, are being
gradually overcome, and it is almost safe
to predict that a few years more of systematic effort will suffice to place the
beet sugar industry in a position independent of foreign assistance for its development.

ALAUAST1NE  IS   WHAT?
Alabastlne Is a durable and na'tural
coating for walls and ceilings entirely different from all kalsomlne preparations,

decaying animal glue. Alabastlne Is a cement, whieh goes through a process of
setting, hardens with age, can be re-coaled and re-decorated from time to time
without having to wash and scrape off its
old coats before renewing.

trouble or expense, and is purifying and]
