Development  Work.
The prospector who first brought
East Kootenay to notice aa a mining
region was that lato veteran A. McMurdo. He it was who discovered the
Burns and International Basins and
brought out the first reports of their
promising prospects as mining camps
of the future. One of the first properties that he located was the Bobby
Burns claim in what has come to be
known ns the Burns Basin. The prospects of this locality attracted the
attention of Mr. Asqnith, it coutractor
of Ottawa. He arranged for the erection of a five stamp mill on the claim,
which has since been rs-christcned the
Robert E. Bums. Tho mill wns worked
for a time hut wus not found profitable,
as no men of experience were employed
and the geld was not unveil. Seventy
tons of rock were put through the
mill, and this rock included a lot of
slate as well as quartz. Tlio milliig
of the seventy tons gava: a return of
only seven and a half ounces of fine
gold, butan examination of the tailings
showed that by the flouring of the
mercury the bulk of the gold had run
into the tailings as these averaged
12 dwts. 23 grains of gold per ton.
The total return from the ore in gold
therefore gave the excellent average
value of $16 per ton, and this notwithstanding the fact that a quantity of
rock was put through that should never
have been milled at all. In addition
to the gold, the ore yielded 7 ounces
of silver per too. That the ore in the
Burns Basin is a profitable milling ore
there con be no question from the
result of the mill run alone, and it.
simply required a man who understood
his business in the position of amalgamator to secure exceedingly profitable results,
The mill is a five stamp Fraser &
Charmer mill for free milling ore and
is fitted with a Tullooh ore feeder. It
is complete in every way and was
driven by water power derived from
a creek that runs alongside the mill
site. A substantial and well built log
cabin has been erected to accommodate
this mill. To effectually treat tha
Burns ore the only additional phut
required would be some vats for cyanide
treatment or for the saving of the finer
gold by chlorination. Iu this way .li
per cent of the gold in the Burns ore
can be saved. The mill wus shut
down after the short run referred to.
partly because of the unsatisfactory
results, and partly because of an extensive litigation which ensued as the
result of the intermeddling of some
claim jumpers.
Tbe Burns forms one of a series of
glacial basins on the left bank of the
middle fork of the Spillimachene river.
The principal of these are the Spruce
Tree, Cariboo, Burns, and International
basins. These are elevated about a
thousand leet above the bed of the
river and all abound in excellent mineral prospects. In these basins there
is a large quantity of timber and
water. The Burns is the third of
these busins ascending the river, and
is distant about 26 miles from Carbonate Landing on the Columbia river.
A trail leads to each of these basins
from the valley beneath, the distance
averaging by the zigzags that are pursued up the steep incline something
like two miles. A good pack trail
leads up the valley of the Spillimachene for the entire length of the valley. The blacksmith's shop and
workmen's cabin - of the Bums are
located on the first terrace above the
river, and a short distance above the
cabins is the mill site, A fine belt of
timber shelters the Burns camp on the
exposed side, A first class wagon road
of about a mile In length had been
built from the mill to the mine, which
is about a m'le further on, This road
has now been destroyed to some extent
by the streams that come down from
the glacier surmounting tbe basin.
The Burns mine is about 8000 feet
above sea-level, the millsite being
about a thousand feet lower, thus
affording excellent gravitation for a
surface or aerial tramway to convey
the ore from the mine to the mill. A
considerable economy in working can
be effected by using such a tramway
on the gravitation principle, by hauling up timber, etc, on the return wire
as the loads of ore go down to the
The Burns lead is one of tha strongest and best defined to be found in the
Kootenay district. Its outcrops can
be distinctly traced from beneath the
glacier on the summit behind the
Bnrns claim right across the valley of
the Spilllmnchene and up the slope of
the opposite range, till it is seen cut*
ting cne of   the  highest peaks on the
right side of the valley, giving a length
of about five miles of lead in sight.
Gold can be panned out of the quartz
along the entire length of this lead.
The only apparent difference in this
huge body of ore over the length of its
exposures is that on the right bank of
the Spillimachene a certain amount of
copper comes into it, though not sufficient to interfere with milling. The
country rock consists of raetamorphic
slutes nnd schists of Cumbrian age,
both taleose nud micaceous. A remarkable feu t nre cf theso rocks is the extent.
to which they are charged with cubes
of iron pyrites, The strike of the
country lock is north-west and south
east, nud the dip is almost vertical.
The direction of the main ledge of the
Burns is N.N..R. and it cuts tho country formation both in strike and dip,
two of the best, indications of true
fissure veins likely to curry permanent
ore values. The Burns lead probably
averages about eight feetiu width, and
is of honey-combed rusty quartz.
Along the course of the Burns load,
it is intersected by quartz lenders running out from it on both sides. Two
of these have been opened out on the
Burns claim and another on the Highland Mary clnim, which bounds the
Bums on ihe west. The most important of these leaders is however that
which runs through a series of claims
at right angles to the Burns lead
These claims are the Bryan, Flying
Dutchman, Lincoln, Lucky Jack and
aSusie. These claims will be referred
to Inter on, but the main point to be
noted at present is that their values
nre quite as good if not better than tbe
values found in the Burns lead itself.
The worst feature of the Burns is
that thero has been no systematic plan
of development of the property, the
original owners having trusted to the
extensive surface showings und a series
of open cuts to guarantee them sufficient ore to proceed with operations.
The main lend was at one time exposed
for a distance of 200 feet by an open
cut, but the workings are filled in to
a large extent. Here there are about
1000 tons of ore on the dump. Another
eut. with about 50 tons of ore on tbe
dump runs along a leader at the lower
extremity of the claim. Another cut
lias been made on the boundary next
tho Highland Mary claim, The Burns
Claim is a lull-sized one of 1500 feet
square, so that it comprises within
its area n large extent, not only of thu
mc iu lend b*it of the lateral lead.'ri.
the prospect.
We lave shown that the actual mill
run ou this ore averaged $11) per ton,
and this may be be taken to be its
lowest average value, as, of eight well
sampled assays made by W. Pellew
Harvey, the nvernge gold return was
330.45 per ton. The cost of mining
and preparing this ore for transmission
to the mill should not exceed $1.25 per
ton, milling $4, and transmission to
mill 25 cents, or a total cost of {6.50
per ton. With ore averaging on the
mill test $16 per ton there is
therefore available a profit of
���9.50 per ton, so that any company operating the Burns would be
assured of handsome profits; while
there is every indication that tbe ore
bodies of this district would s.ipply
enough ore for a century to come. The
Burns is a most promising property in
every way and will fully justify a
proper system of exploration and
development. At present it is under
bond to the Associated Gold Mines of
B.C., and we have just been assured
by the management of this Company
that it is still their intention to take
up and operate the pioperty.
Two claims have been staked between
the Burns and the summit of the
mountain���Abergeldie, owned by A.
M. Langlands, and McKinley, owned
by E, A. Taguart. These are supposed
to be on the Burns lea I, but no development work has yet been done on
H. E. Foster owns ths claim on the
west of the Burns called the Highland
Mary, The ore here consists of leaders
of the Burns, and a shaft and some
open cuts have been made on a four
foot lead, and also ou a smaller leader.
The ore from these leads is first class
gold quartz, aud comprised some of tho
finest lhat we sampled in the basin.
Mr. Foster also owns tho claim on the
south side of ihe Burns. This is
known as the Rider fraction, through
which the main lead ofthe Burnsruns,
Mr. Foster also owns the Nugget, a
Crown Grant claim on whioh a good
deal of work has been done. This
claim is north-east of the Burns and
on an independent lead which runs
parallel with the Burns lead. We had
not time on the occasion of our visit to
sample the ore of this lead but were
informed that it is of a character similar to the Burns.
A. M. Langlands has a claim on the
southern boundary of the Nugget, and
lias staked it as the Caledonia,

Trails nro utterly useless for tins purpose, excop' in very rare instances.
The taxation levieal on shipping mines
would, by u proper system of finance,
soon repay the amount involved in tho
construction of these road'. Much u

The Political Situation.
The Kainloops Sentinel says: "Mutual recriminations are the order of the
day. Premier Turner is coming in for
wholesale denunciation. Already a
movement is on foot to oust him from
the leadership of the party, tho plan
boing to replaco him hy the senior
member for Victoria, Harry Ifohnckun.
James Dunsmuir, the member-elect for
Comox, is very sore over Premier Turner's failure. He attributes tho defeat
of thn Government largely to the
Premier's lack of vtjfor In oonduoi-lng
thecampaign-i James Duristnulr now
finds himself out in the oold ; his vast
expenditures to bolster up a discredited
Government havo been ivhsi<*.I, his rule
is ut an end. Just novv all that James
Dunsmuir has to recompense him for
his outlay during the campaign is a
large quantity of very inferior hay
bought at fancy prices from tho free
and independent electors of Comox
valley. Hon. Col. Baker is another
thoroughly discontented politician. He
has always believed that the party
made a mi-stake iu selecting Hon. J.
H. Turner for its leader, Now ho is
convinced of that fact. Tho honor-
able and gallant Colonel doss not like
the idea of sitting on ihe* Oj'po-iion
benches. He has still a feu* to.* ns it is
to dispose of. and his plans io boom
them in London, after the manner of
tho notorious Cranbrook estate transaction, havo all been knocked on the
head. Col. Baker, upon his return to
Victoria, intimated that two or three
Opposition members might be bought
over, but greatly to his disappointment
be found that ho had to deal with men
of a different calibre to the 'machine
majority' of (Cor him) happier days."
The Toronto Globe says: "The
ablest ot the men whom British Columbia has honored with election will be
the men who will sway her destinies.
One at least of these men the east
knows well. The ability of the Hon.
Joseph Martin is unquestioned here.
His keen intellect, his capacity of
appreciating the real wants of the people, together with the skill in debate,
the tenacity of purpose, tho powers of
hard fighting which givo effect to his
clearness of vision aad his ability,
stamp htm as a man to be relied upon
to render good service to the community
which finds itself with so vast a heritage, such far eNtendiqg prubloms,"
Referring to the World's attacks on
Joseph Martin the Winnipeg Tribune
ways: "The World, if an intelligent
observer of public matters, will be
forced to admit that he is one of the
ablest and best men it has ever been
its dishonor to oppose. Joseph Martin's worth is not exaggerated by the
Toronto G-lobo and other eastern journals."
victory ron thmbbst elements,
The Toronto News says : " The
dofeat of the Turner Government in
British Columbia is a victory for the
best elements of the Pacific Province.
The only principle apparent in tho
conduct of the Administration was
that of caring for themselves and their
frionds, Tho general good was not
considered if it conflicted with the
individual welfare cf the Ministers*
That is the kind of Governmont that a
now country can ill afford lo havo."
Tho Province says : " Word comes
to Vancouver from a reliable source
that Premier Turner is anxious to
resign. He had fully made tip his
mind to band his resignation in on
'Saturday, but was persuaded at the
t>i:.-,*. moment to hold it over for.tho
time being by those who surround him
and are generally supposed to influence
his actions." -
Thus t he Toronto Telegram : "Yes,
the Turner Government is going to
'moot the Legislature' pretty much
the same way that a man's head meots
the sidewalk when ho steps on a
banana peel."
Tho WinnipegTribuno says: " Ono
tning is plain, the people of British
Columbia have pronouncedugaiust the
Turner government; it is beaten and
discredited and should promptly acquiesce iu tho verdict by stepping down
and out. Turner has given the province a most extravagant and corrupt
administration, and fhe people have
condemned him, Ho is but flying in
the lace of fate and of the public will
by attempting to hang on to office,
and bsing beaten and discredited he
must ho set aside sooner or later. He
should promptly recognize the inevi
jablo, and* niako way for better and
d.aner men."
Aunt Mary's
The other evening Aunt Mary took
the electric cars and  rede eastward to
the bouse of her ncieu who a few weeks
previously* hud just commenced housekeeping.      Without ceremony the old
lady entered the  house and found her
ael.ee in the kitchen looking very dejected.     Aunt Mary   soon discovered
that  lior neioehad tried to dye an old
cream opera shawl a cardinal red with
some poor cheap dye.     The result was
certainly enough  to tost the patience
and goodness of an an^el.     A miserable mixed color, half red and brown,
was iho result of labor.     Aunt  Mary
deeply sympathized  with her horror
[stricken  ncloe, and advised her in future to use nothing  but  the Diamond

Hon. Col. Baker has returned from
Cassiar and states that the polling for
the Cassiar elections at Rivers Inlet
was Clifford 69, Irving 66, McTavish
9. It is considered that the first two
are certain of election.
The Kootenay Mail says: "Work
on the new C.P.R. machine and repair
shops will begin at Revelstoke on
Monday and be steadily prosecuted till
they are fully finished which will be
about October next, the buildings being
very substantial."
Mr. McMahon, the Presbyterian
missionary stationed at Windermere,
will conduct the services in the Presbyterian Church here next Sunday in
the absence of Rev. W. S. Wright,
who has gone to Galena to perforin

As tbe Governor-General's special
train passed through Golden on Monday night, Lord and Lady Aberdeen
stopped off to visit tho Golden Hospital
and expressed themselves much pleased
with what they saw of the arrangements, and of the manner in which
the Hospital is conducted.
A protest has been filed at Victoria,
by Wm. Baillie, against the election of
Hon. Col. Baker iu South East Kootenay. Bribery, undue influence, and
corruption iu many other forms are
alleged. The Court required that $2000
be deposited to covor the costs of the
The People, a weekly London Newspaper, says: The Canadian Pacific
Railway huve decided to develop mountaineering as an attraction for tourists
in the Rockies. The company have
sent an official to Switzerland lo engage Alpine guides, who will forthwith
be shipped out to Canada.
The employees ot the Benver Mills
struck on Monday ou account of the
deduction from their wages of the
Golden Hospital contribution. Twenty
of the meu were dismissed and a settlement was arrived at wilh the others
by which they were to remain on this
month and the payment of the Hospital dues was to be optional with thein.
Dunsmuirism dies hard. Although
the Supreme Court has decided that
the Dunsmuirs cannot employ Chinese
labor in underground mines, that firm
is going to appeal to the Privy Council
The Dunsmuirs can depend on it that
Joe Martin will bring them to their
knees in the same way as he brought
to its knees tho C.P.R. in Manitoba.
G. B. McDermot has just received
another large consignment of furniture
which is going rapidly, as he is filling
orders 'o Field, Donald and Beaver, as
well as locally. On Tuesday of last
week Mr. McDermot received a consignment of the New Raymond sewing
machines, and owing to the low cash
prices at which he was able to offer
them,the consignment was sold out by
Saturday night.
Last week G. B. McDermot got
instructions from tbe Hudson Bay Co,
to arrange for a party of English tourists taking in the Columbia Valley.
Mr. McDermot arranged with M. Dainard to act as guide to tbe party who,
however, changed their intentions, anal
have gone instead to take in the Okan-
agau country. Should time permit the
parly will stop off at Golden on their
way back tor the purpose of taking in
this section of the country.
The News-Advertiser declares that
owing to the way in which the Cassiar
election is being conducted it is invalid.
Our contemporary adds: " The more
this Cassiar election affair is examined
the worse the unsavoriness of the
whole business is seen to be. Every
ore can realise the corruption and
intimidation which 1* possible where
the polling takes place on different

Almost every man in America has
some digestive trouble. When men
meet, the greeting usually is, "We
how are you?" That develops health
talk. The man who has no bowel or
stomach trouble is almost a curiosity.
Trouble Is men take no care of them
selves. They eat as though they had
copper stomachs and bowels of brass.
By and by, overworked nature rebels.
Then come headaches, nervousness,
bad blood, liver and kidney troubles.
Dr. Pierce's Plesant Pelletaa furnish
help for constipation and torpid liver,
sick and billious headache, dizziness,
sour stomach, loss of appetite, indigestion, or dysyepisa, windy belchings,
"heartburn," pain and distress after
eating, and kindred derangements of
tho liver, stomach and bowels. Accept
no substitute.
Concerning Joseph Martin the Edmonton Bulletin says: "His election
will certainly be for the benefit of the
Province. British Columbia politics
needed shaking up and Martin is just
the man to shake them up. Whether
he is called upon to form a Government, which he may be within a few
months; whether he becomes the leader
of a strong Opposition; or whether he
is simply a fighter in the ranks on the
Opposition side, his election is a great
gain to British Columbia local polities
and to some considerable extent, to the
politics of the Dominion ns well."
A gentleman who has just arrived
from Cassiar says: " With regard to
the elections, the government have
assumed such absolute power in Cassiar that tho electors know little or
nothing about what is going on. Contrary to all law and custom no procla
���nation giving tin. date of the election
has been posted up throughout the
constituency, and ordinary electors are
entirely in the dark as to whether the
elections will come off on the day
appointed or not. Of course the government have their agents throughout
the whole district hy the dozens, nil
having a good time at someone's
The Vancouver morning paper Bays :
" In the few weeks which have elapsed
since the election, enough has been
disclosed to show to what disreputable
actions the Government and some of
its supporters resorted in order to carry
the elections. When we hear of such
things and look back on what the
Opposition had to contend against, it
is not surprising that, it did not secure
a larger proportion of tho seats in the
Legislature but. that it should hare
achieved the success which it did at
the polls. With such disclosures as
those to which we have referred, the
electors will have ample reasvn for
satisfaction that notwithstanding this
corruption and intimidntionthe majority of the vcters decided on July 9ih
that it was time for a change."
The Ottawa Evening Journal (Independent Conservative) lias a leading
article which says : " Premier Turner
of British Columbia has announced
that his government will not resign,
but will meet the legislature to see
what will happen. It is admitted that
he has but 18 supporters in a house of
38 members, and is also in minority ol
1,500 in the general electoral vote.
When that is the best a government
can do which goes to the polls with
the advantages of patronage and pros
tige, it is a pretty sorry result. Turner
ought to have the self-respect and
decency to resign at once. Any of his
supporters who value responsible government and welfare of the state more
than mere salary grabbers do should
tell him so."
Persons troubled with diarrhoea will
be interested in the experience ��� of Mr.
W. M. Bush, clerk of Hotol Dorrunce.
Providence, R. I. He says: "For
several years I bnve been almost a constant sufferer from diarrhoea, the frequent attacks completely prostrating
me and rendering me unfit for my
duties at this hotel. About two years
ago a travelling salesman kindly gave
me a small bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
Much to my surprise and delight its
effects were immediate. Whenever I
felt symptoms of the disease I would
fortify myself against the attack with
a few doses of this valuable remedy.
The result has been very satisfactory
and almost complete relief from the
affliction." Sold by all druggists,
Langley & Co. wholesale Agents Victoria and Vancouver.
If we interpret aright the expressions of the Government organ at
Viotoria, tho Colonist, the Turner
Ministry intend to hold on to office in
defiance of the will of the people as
expressed at the polls. The .Colonist
says: "There is no written law anywhere under which a defeated ministry
can be compelled to resign, A defeuted

defeat on a vote of want of confidence
in tho house a ministry need not resign
The crown or the representative may
grant a defeated ministry a dissolution
and an opportunity to appeal -.o the
people." We can tell the Colonist that
as soon as the Cassiar elections are
over, it can depend on the Opposition
taking such steps as shall place it in
power where the large majority of the
people have decided it shall be. If '.lie
Government intend appealing to the
country, it will find the Opposition

Yukon Vontarura, In Trouble.
The gentlemen who left Golden for
the Yukon have fared very badly. Mr
Stracev's boat with the supplies and
outfit for his proposed hotel at Dawson
city came to grief, as she was unable
to stand the strain of the northern
voyage, became water logged, and had
to be towed Into Dutch Harbour, but a
later report says he waa able to go on
to St. Michael's, Most of the cargo
is reported to have been damaged by
Capt. Armstrong has fared similarly
badly. Afterrunpinga few trips with
his boat, the Mona, on the Stickine he
resolved on attempting to enrry out his
first project of getting into the Yukon
river, and with that end in view his
partner, S. Barber, arranged to get the
boat towed in round by St.. Michael's.
The trip had not been long under
weigh when a storm set in and the
Mona, being unable to withstand the
knocking about, started to break up.
Her crew signalled the towing steamer,
and were taken on board. Th'is had
hardly been accomplished when the
Mona's tow broke and the vessel drifted en the rocks and became a complete
wreck.     She was insured for hall her
A Vigorous Road Policy Wanted for
The trade of Golden is threatened for
want of a vigorous system of openitg
up the country roads. For instance
he Oolden and Fort Steele Co. have no
means of access to their property at
the head of the Bugaboo. This property is situated on the divide, so that
the oro can be shipped as readily down
one side of the Selkirk range as the
other. A road eight miles in length
down the Howser Creek will connect
the mine with the Duncan River, which
will be available for navigation to this
point us soon as certain contemplated
improvements have been carried out by
the Marine Department of the Dominion, and these Mr. Roy, Dominion
Government Engineer has in hand at
the present time. There are many
mines in the district similarly situated
to this group and a vigorous road
policy such as that advocated in onr
leading columns today is the only thing
that can save Oolden from a serious
A Hutch of Protests.
The Government have Bled petitions
against the return of Kelly for Revelstoke, Hume for Nelson, and Deane
[or Ktimloops.
Since the Government party have
begun protesting the electiou of Opposition candidates, the Opposition are
determined, to give them their full of
protests. The Opposition have then-
fore put up the deposits for protesti g
all the Government seats, includii g
North East Kootenay. The deposits
required by law amount to $2000 for
each seat so that the Opposition party
have had to put up over $30,000 t.y
way of preliminaries.

A Specialty at
To Kill Mosquitoes.
Two and one-half hours are required
for a mosquito to develop from its
first stage, a speck resembling clnlern
bacteria, to its active and venomous
maturity. Tho insect in all its phases
may be instantly killed by contact
with minute quantities of permanganate of potassium. Il is claimed that
one part of this substance in fifteen
hundred of solution distributed in
mosquito marshes will render the  de*
clopment of larvae impossible; that a
hanalful of permanganate will oxidize
a ten-acre swamp, kill its embryo in
sects, and keep it free from organic
matter for 30 days at a cost of 25 cents;
that with care a whole state may be
kept free of insect pests ata small cost.
An efficacious method is to scatter a
few crystals widely apart. A single
pinch of permanganate has killed all
the germs in a 1,000-gallon tank.- The
Public Health Journal.
