A MAUCIGtiB ARTICLE.
Tbe Kamloops Standard recently
publishod the follow Ing:  -
'Tbe Gorernment as usual appear to
be doing tho wrong thing, even in uo
simple a matter nn the opening up
o( Tete Jatino Cachu Country. Ac*
Oordittg to .the Golden Eka Motrin
Ine been authorised to put a btij^o
across Wood River, u most absurd
proposition, for not only wilt it en*
mil a largo outlay, bur. it. is .opening
up a route impracticable for hoary
truffle.
The Canadian Pacific Railway took
particular pain* Ht unlimited expense-
to find out the most feasible routes, and
their work stilt remains tn wbat
known uti the North River trail. If
the-government intend opening up tho
'tete Jaune Oaclio Gauntry aud we
hope they wilt, tbey can do so at far
less loss to the cottutry, and in a more
thorough manner, by reopening Lhe
said trait.
( Thero is already news of fatalities
on the trail leading from Golden,   and
fiarties are new detained on,lho way,
n consequence of iti ruggoducss and
the rapids, all this would bo avoided by
the North River trail, while the actual distance from tbe head of navigation ro Ttte Jaune Cache, would be
lei* Uiftn by any otlier route. We re
commend the Board of Trado to eee to
this."
The above article is a tissue of falsehood- ThorO has not been a singlo fa
tality on the trail and except for some
ii&ft gound along Tinbaskot .Lake the
trail Is in first-class condition. We
doo'r, like to draw Invidious comparisons, but in this ease we must say the
trail from Golden is ten times better
and moro desirable in every way than
that from Kamloops. If not, why is
It that everybody coming and going to
the Cache take? the Golden route? One
reason Is thaf (hey know by experience
what is the best and shortest route,
and another reason is that they have
not the blind prejudice whioh appears
to be taken as the guiding star of our
Kamloops contemporary, and whioh is
consequently leading it into the most
absurd and ludicrous blundering. Before spending a dollar on the trail from
Oolden, we know tbe Government made
most careful enquires as to which was
the heat route, and they have adopted
the route from Golden as a result. If
Kamloops is the Seaven elected gate
to the Cache why have all the prospectors who havs gone in from the south
���arid west outfitted at Golden, and made
this town their headquarter*? Fortunately all the spite and, misrepresen
tation of our contemporary cannot at
ter the geography of the   tho country
between Goldon and the Cache,
IMPEDING  NAVIGATION.
Complaint's are made about the Columbia River Lumber Company blocking up the river with logs aud thereby
htipedihg navigation. Last, week
Capt. Bacon was unable to iand at the
Fifteen Mile Creek Landing to take on
passengers owing to the togs. On her
first trip this week the .Duchess was
delayed three hour:' \n getting away
from Golden owing to the jam of logs
in the river. Tbe navigation laws of
this country aro very clear about this
���that they will not permit any hindrance to navigation even if it means
requiring every boom in the river to be
taken out. There is no desire on tbe
part of nnybo.ly to impede in any way
ths operations of the Lumber Company and when complaints Hko these
have to tie made thero must be good
cause for it. In one placo a now boom
has been put in, mid ilio old piles have
not.been tavern out, and aro dangerously in the wny of steamers, while
two-thirds of tho channel have been
takon up near the mill rendering it
Impossible for steamboats to pass.
The Lumber Company (should have
some consideration f��r tbo rights of
other-} besides themselves, and when
su'*li coii'idoratiou is ignored nothing
else can be expected but that troublo
will result. The Murine Department
have now been appealed to uml shou.,1
certainly take steps to havo these
grievances effectually roiuodied, but
tiow muoh better it.would have been if
no necessity had arisen lo appeal to
the Dominion Government to protect
the publio interest in the matter ?
The Government should recognise in
some substantial- y-ay the excellent
services rendered by IV. Evans since
he has been ��t Tete Jaune Cache.
Very few people would have taken the
trouble he has to bring to justice the
-perpetrator of the outrage at the Cache
and suoh services as Evans has rendered iu this instance should he suitably rewarded.

Water Prevents Prospecting.
On Sunday there arrived at Donald W. Evans, with a party of four
who went iu from Edmonton, and 20
pack holies, 'j'hts party are coining
on to Goldon to outfit nnd return,
Evans informs us that the water is
too high to allow of prospecting, and
hence there is no news regarding the
goldfield. He saw Arohdi-acon Mackay, who was on his way ou when
be ran across Frank Fulton, from
whom ho got information which induced him to return, but whether it
was nowc of better gold prospects or a
desire to help the injured man Macau ley was uot known-probably the
latter.

TRAGEDY AT TETE

ATTEMPTED MURDER.
The   Victim    Not   Likely   tc

During the winter two men, A. Hsc-
anlay, a quarterbreed from Prince Albert, aged 29, and J. Hughes, au old
man between 50 and 60 years of. age,
from Kaosas, T).Sty were tripping Itt
the vicinity of Tete Jaune Cache,
Macautay had formerly been trapping:
with Price on Canoe Rivor. When it
came to dividing up the skiou at the
end of the season Mf.caulny and
Hughes bad a row. Hughes contended,
that he had dono all tbe work and had
to keep Maeaulay, and Ho wanted the
whole of the season's catch. This led
to hot words and Hughes says Macaulay threatened him. On June 12th*
when Macaulay waa hitching up his
horse, Hughes shot at him, tho bullet
entering the right eye, tearing through
ths cheek and carrying >w-ay paH of
the jawbone and then 'weut through
the lungs to the intestines. The. injured man, who was accompanied by
his half-bresd wife and two children-,
lay for six- -dnyb till t.he Edmonton!
party passed the enrap going ont. The
woman signalled thorn and they at
enco sent to Price and Evans on Swift
Current,. .JFheseraen vrent up to the
scene o�� the affray, which is at the
junction of Swift Current with the
Fraser. Macaulay was found te be
still alive though it was then nine
days after he had beon shot, bnt he
was unable to take any food. Evans
arrested.Hughes and arranged for the
party to leave for-Golden. ��� 'It Was
however foared Ataoaulay would, die,
and in which case arrangements were
made for Price to folio-jy the party*.
So badly was-the man's fa-�� Shattered

A CYCLONE'S DESTRUCTIVE WORK
AT AINSWORTH, XEU.
Tbe Funnel Enveloped Several Build*
lugs lu Its Path, Whirling Them
Into a Confused Mass.
Ainsworth, Neb., Juy 7.���A destruo-
tive oycloue passed Ainsworth, two
mile.? to the north yesterday afternoon,
killing ouo woman and tearing houses,
bams, fences aud bridnes into kindling
wood. Its first (test rue tive work was
ou tbe farm of John Strohui, four miles
northwest of Ainsworth, demolishing
everything iu sight. Luckily the family took to a enve and no ono was injured. It struck the house of Wm.
LockmilltT, a mile to the vast. Mrs.
Lock miller hnd sought n-fnge iu the
cellar with three small children, .Her
uldoBt son not coming, and fearing he
miglit be killed in the barn where he
was working, Mrs. Lock mi Her started
to cull him just ns the cyclone reached
them. As she stood at tho door the
house was moved from its foundations
uud she wus crushed intuit lifeless
mass and her body severed iu twnfu at
thn waist. The children, however,
were unhurt, the funnel doiog no
further damage than moving tiie honse
from its foundations, tearing off a portion of tho roof and hurling the portions a distance away. Tho farm of
Rev F. W. Debug, two miles north of
the town, was uext visited. Here the
funnel remained utmost stationary for
a few minutes, while its tail swung
around to the cast of the house, striking tha stable, tbe coru crib and sheds,
whirling them in a contused mass over
tho prairie to the north, leaving the
house intact. A moment later it enveloped tho house in i. cloud aud when
it cleared away nothing hut the foundation was left standing. Rev. Mr.
Deloug and family had taken refuge in
the cellar and were unhurt.
All the crops are completely destroyed and much stock was killed in the
path of the storm.
Glens Falls, N. Y., July 7.���A cy
done struck this section of the state
Tuesday afternoon. Large trees were
uprooted, aud otlier damage done Jas.
Nosbitt, a farmer, living east of Lake
George, was driviug and waB blown
witb his horse and buggy from the road
over a fence into a field. He was injured so severely that he died. The
track of the storm is about half a mile
wide.
Dallas, Texas, July 7. ��� Depnty
Shoriff Swearington, of Austin county,
made the following stutement over the
long distance telephone at Sealey last
night: "Relief tins not reached the
Hood victims iu this section. Thirteen
dead bodies have beeu recovered near
the town of Krookshirc, thirteen miles
from here. Forty-five perrons above
Sealey are reported missing and given
np for dead. Seven were drowned yesterday in a boat sevou miles below
Sealey. Abont 400 persons are isolated
on a small piece of laud in tbe Brazos
Bottoms, three mileg &�������> nrooKsmre.
Several hundred moro are similarly
surrounded at San Philippe, three miles
from Sealey. Unless relief oan soon
reach these two places tho 800 lives
will probably be lost."
A Mint for Canada.
Vancouver, B. C, Jnly 7.��� Donald
McDonald, brother of Alex. McDonald,
the bonanza king, and T. Trotter, two
fortunate Klondike���, who returned
from Dawson on Sunday, left for Montreal yesterday with two sacks of dnst
valued at about 180,000. McDonald
stated tbat tliey would get it assayed
at Montreal and brought up the question of a mint, remarking that tbe
opiniou of miners was that it should be
established ou tho Pacific coast, which
is essentially the centre of the mining
industry of the Dominion. If this
were done, he argued, miners wonld be
saved both the troulde of packing theri
gold around and consequent anxiety of
taking it n long distance to the enst or
us more frequently the easo to the
United States. The provincial government has established an assay office
hero, but It does not buy gold outright,
consequently several of McDonald's
fortunate companions have left for
��� Seattle uud Sou Frniiciseo where these
statu governments will purchase the
dust as well as make assays.
Cadets Arrive at Toronto.

Hay���Mine. Drcylus Distressed.
Keenes, France, July 7.���Yesterday
for Captain Dreyfus passed off very
much as the day before. Madame
Dreyfus, M. Malhieu Dreyfus, his
brother aud Maitre Labori, bis co.msel,
visited the prisoner, but otherwise no
special incident occurred. Many, however, predict trouble on lhe national
fete day when a review of the garrison
will bo held on the Champ de Mars, a
large open space inside tbe town. The
anti-Dreyfusards will attempt to draw
Ihe troop? into a demonstration.
Madame Dreyfus, accompanied by
her parents, drove to the prison in a
carriage yesterday afternoon. Her
parents were not admitted, but she remained witb her husband an hour. On
leaving she showed, for the first time
signs of distress. Her eyes were swollen and red as though she had been
weeping bitterly, She is still in deep
mourning and is determined to remain
so until her husband regains his liberty. A somewhat larger crowd than
usual watched her arrival and departure and again displayed utter lack of
manners and consideration for ber terrible position, gathering around her,
rudely stnring ber in tbe face aud
pressing one another  aside  in their
her inward agony, which might be reflected in her countenance.

Tiie arrest of Pare aud Holden reopens
the whole bank robbery cine.
Montreal, July 7.���Pare and Holden,
the re-arrested bank robbers, were not
given much chance of talking with the
newspaper reporters dnriug their short
stay in the city, but the local papers
obtained from the officers with them a
pretty full account of their wanderings
since their escape, and of the incidents
leading to their re capture. Pare had
a lame leg and could not travel well,
and Holden wonld not leave him,
though ny doing so he could have got
away himself. It is two months since
they escaped and most of the time has
been spent in Quebec province, aud in
tbe state of Maine. Thoy came back
to OampofUtowu to try and take ship
and |{et cleur uw.ty. A local constable
noticed them, Chief Duncan arrested
them fur trumps, searched them, fonnd
them without firearms, nud was about
to discharge them as harmless Ira .ips,
when ho suddenly saw a resemblance

The Scoundrel Makes His Escape and
Is Searched for by Armed Citizens, but Without Success.
Brandon, July 6.���A most cold*
blooded aud shocking murder was committed here yesterday afternoon,when,
without the slightest warning, Mrs.
Robert Lane, one of Braudou's most respected ladies, the wife of Mr. Robert
Luue, of Melvide & Lane, who was
standing iu tier owu house, was sbot
and almost iustautly killed by a tramp,
who, in the confusion whioh followed,
made his escape, and 1b still at large,
although the citizens turned out en
masse, und faave becii scouring the city
nud surrounding country with revolvers, rifles and sbot guns ever since.
During the whole afternoon the
greatest excitement has prevailed, and
the town is surrounded by members of
the local infantry, folly armed and determined lo prevent the escape of the
man it lie is still hidden about the
town, while hundreds of citizens are
scouring the country in hopen of capturing the villain. It could uot have been
more fiendish uud daring.
Tho murderer came to Mr. Lane's
back door abont a quarter to four
o'clock and asked for food. The servant
girl referred the man to Mrs. Laue,
who was standing on a chair, hanging
curtains. She told him that she was
too busy to attend or bother with him,
when, witbont tbe slightest warning
he drew a revolver aud fired. The bullet pierced Mrs. Lane in the back below
tbe shoulder blade. The fiend was so
close to her that her clothes were singed
with the flames from the pistol. Mrs,
Laue did not fall, but ran ont the front
door to the sidewalk, where she felf
and expired in a few minutes. Mr,
Bauipion was the first man on the spot,
attracted by the screams of the servant.
He saw something was wrong with
Mrs. Lane aud ran for A dootor. Returning in a couph ot minutes, be discovered she had been shot, and he at
once sent for the police. In the mean
time the murderer had run ont the back
gate and escaped. The chief of police
was on the spot very promptly bnt tbe
man had then ten minutes' start, The
fire alarm was sounded and soon bun'
dreds of citizens hud joined iu the
search for the murderer, who was described as a tall man with a moustache
and an unshaven face, dressed iu new
blue overalls, grey shirt and wearing a
black slouch hat. He carried a saok.
A tramp answering the description
very well was captured by Mr. Fields
near the C.P.R. stock yards. It was
with extreme difficulty the man was
safely landed In the cells, the crowd being very anxions to get hold of him.
Shouts of "lynch him" were heard on
all sides. In the meantime hundreds
of citizens had volunteered their cervices and were driviug ont in all directions.     All kinds of wild rumors were

Onrtis. He was walking and running.
He was also seen by some little girls
who were picking strawberries on the
prairie, and by Messrs. Patmore and
Pndon, who saw him disappear into
the bushes. Here they searched but
could not locate him, tbe bush being so
thick that a mnn cau scarcely force his
way through. Some herd boys further
down tbe river raw a roan who somewhat answered the description, going
southeast. This clue was followed np
without resnh. The reports of men
wearing blue overalls and answering
the description came from several other
directions but these seemed to have
very little hope of his immediate capture and parties all over the province
should keep a sharp lookout,

PAINS IN THE BACK
And the other distressing symptoms of KIDNEY DISEASE were entirely removed by the
world's most popular and most successful kidney cure,
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Mr. Alex. Marshall, 59 Essex St., Toronto, Ont., says: " Dr. Chases Kidney-Liver
Pills are a splendid medicine and certainly do all that is claimed for them. Both myself
and wife have been greatly benefited by their use. I had kidney disease and pains in the
back for over two years, and at times the pains were so acute that I was totally unfit for
work. Among the remedies I tried were English pills, supposed to be good, but they did
not fit my case. I heard Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills highly praised and used them.
I now feel like a new man. The pains and aches have entirely disappeared and I can now
work with comfort. My wife is much better, and we both endorse Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills most heartily."
The remarkable efficacy of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills in permanently curing
backache and kidney disease has made them known the world over as the greatest kidney
cure of modern times. Vou can rely absolutely on this great remedy. One pill a dose.

Railway Romances.
Montreal, July 6.���Tho acquisition
of the Boston and Albany by the Mew
York Central railway has given rise
to a variety of reports in Amerioan
papers affecting the Canadian railways.
According to the latest rumors the Canadian Pacific and the Mew York Central nave entered into a formal alliance, and as part and parcel of the
agreement have secured control of tht
projected Grand Island bridge over the
Niagara River a few miles above Buffalo. That is one part of the deal; the
other cone-eras the working of two systems in the east, and with the acquisition by the New York Central of the
control of tbe Boston and Albany, a
fantastic web of romanoe has been
woven between the Ganadinu Pacific
railway, the New York Central combination and Ihe Grand Trnuk, and Central Vermont system.
When seen at the offices nt the Windsor station this morning, D. MoNicoll,
assistant general manager of the Canadian Paoiflo railway, declared without
reserve that tbere was nothing what*
ever in the report as far as the Oau��
diau Pacific Is concerned. The Canadian PuclQs and the New York Central
uf course bad worked together for
years, tbe latter being the O. P. R, 'i
Amerioan connection, and tin O. P. R
the Canadian connection of the Central. They would continue lo work together on tbe same basis, bnt as for any
new alliance between them on the Hues
indicated in the report tram Buffalo,
or the other report from Boston, there
was nothing in it."

Drink Plenty of Water.
Tho question nt water drinking rocolvos
now light by recant discussions on the
subject. Tho modern advice to drink all
tho water you can Is n little modified. The
latest belief Is that ono should drink a
certain quantity of water according to the
and weight nml tn the kind of employment engaged In. If a man labors very
bnrd with his muscles, he needs far mora
water than thu sedentary person, for the
evaporation of bis sktu goes on more rapidly. Men working In foundries, when
the temporaturo is high, drink three or
(our gallons dally without Injuring thein.
The season also determines the amount of
water required. In summer wd demand
twice ns muoh as In winter; but, as n rule,
, people drink too little In oold weather. It
would be better If they drank more In
winter, though thero wero no desire for It
If ono oats plenty of fruits, less water Is
required by the system, but when the diet
Is composed chiefly of fatty and starchy
foods tho quantity of water should be In*
creased to a quart or three pints a dny.
Hearty eaters should drink much more In
winter to keep tho system washed out
thoroughly.���Housekeeper.

by the use of Burdock Blood Bitters (and
not only relieved and cured for the time

Tha following is Mrs. Keirateatfs
letter i���
"With gratitude I can testify to the

Blood Bitters. Eight years ago our little
son, Freddy, was afflicted with salt rheum
and was in a dreadful condition. His legs,
from the soles of his feet to his body, were
entirely raw, and ran a bloody water,
which appeared to burn and itch until he
was often in great agony.
" After trying several remedies, we te*

"You can imagine with what delight
and gratitude we saw our boy entirely
cured nfter using ona bottle and part of

ofthe second bottle, and from that time

���oi���
DOAS'S KIDSEV PILLS.
No one can be healthy witb the kidneys
In a diseased or disordered state. The
poisonous Uric Acid which it is their
duty to filter out of the blood, is carried
into the system and produces Rheumatism, Headaches, Baakaebes and hundreds of ills and ailments.
Any one wbo baB the slightest suspicion
that the kidneys aro not acting right
should take Doan's Kidney Pills, They
are the most effective kidney remedy
known. Mr, Conrad Beyer, at E. K.
Snyder's Shoe Store, Berlin, Out., bears
this out when lie says:
1 'Anyone Buffering with kidney troubles
cannot do bettor than take Doan's Kid-
ney Pills, for tbey cured my wife who
has been afflicted with pain in the back
and other kidney troubles for a long
time. They have helped a great many
of my acquaintances iu this town, and I
must say tbey are the medioine that
reach the kidneys with the best effects."

nobody to look out for it. Another caution is to see that the ice box Is left
perfectly empty, with the exception of
a shallow dish filled with charcoal, and
that the doors stand wide open. One
more precaution is thut uuy keronene
lumps left in the home should lie thoroughly cleaned, the wicks taken out

On Shuswap mountain, tlio next

Bornaia mnl Burmun have linen liuni at
work dovfcto|)iiiK a prospect, Thia
consist h of -galoua iuterspersuit through
a uuloito and qu.irtxoso gun*;o at one
point of ttie property nnd u series of
outcropping of copper ore scattered
over the locations. The propertv ti at
about the mine elevation as the Swan
son. Tlm lead on whioh most work is
done is in a fissure in tho limestone,
aud strikes N. Hti K. with a dip of 62
to the west. A cross cut tunnel has
lieen driven across the lead exposing ic
over a;fuee of lift. 4ln. Tt ia tunnel
has been driven for a distance of 50ft.
Gin. A shaft was then sunk on the
lend for a depth of 22ft, (Jin, The ore
hero is galena, nnd Ml', Burman, wbo
has been personally pushing the work,
explained to us that his reason for1
pushing down with this shaft was
that he bad hoped the ore would run
into copper. Lower down the mountain side another vein is exposed thowing fine copper ore. 400 feet above the
tunnel another ore-body outcrops, and
a cut ruu on this shows a mixture ol
galena and copper ores. On top of
the mountain thfre is a magnificent
showing of copper ore, ovtv a vein six
feet in thickness, and this has also
been opened up to some extent, the ore
being a copper glance aud malachite.
The group'consists of lhe Silver Hill,
Lake View and Mammoth claims. The
site is au ideal oue for a mine, the
mountain side sloping at about 50
degrees, and well situated for transportation. Water and timber are plentiful in the immediate vicinity, and a
trail a half a mile long connects the
property with a wagon road. The
owners are doserviug of great credit
for their persistent work, In addition
to those mentioned, 'here are ether flue
showings on the surface outcrops, and
every indication of a body of copper
ore in the vicinity, if it cau be struck
and satisfactorily proved.
UNION GROfl'.
Messrs West and Washburn are also
men who have done a good deal of
-firopurtyf ine TMri��^
Group. This property is located on
blind gulch about throo miles along
the base of Windoruim-u mountain, and
opposite the Swansea. The owners
have made a trail to tneif property
and put in a winter eainp, which thoy
operated in lhe face of considerable
difficulties, Tiie lowest outcrop
the property is about 4,BOO feot above
sea-level on the face of a steep limestone l-lulf. Whore tiie work has mnii.-
ly Wen done there is a streak running
through ihe limestone of copper ore
which we ere informed lias asmiyed us
high ns SloO to the ton in all values.
The oro is an azuriie and copper
glanca.aud is one of the nicest ores we
have seen. A cut has been mado 14
feet into the bluiT ou the streak but
did not reveal any distinct vein. An
other cut lias been ruu higher up,
Thoro are about five tons of oro on the
dump. On the top of the bluff development work has beon dono in a veiu
showing malachite ore. The point at
which this work has been done is 500
feet above the lower workings. The
gangue is quit r Us, and tho vein here is
at least 12 feot wide. It is proposed
to do some farther development work
on tills allowing of ore. The property
is well located for timber, water and
transportation if a sufficiently largo
body of ore can be struck of tbo quality of that now showing,
IM 1.(1 KIM  ORUUP.
O. A. Brown was oue of tho first
settlers in Windermere to take auin-
terc-t in mining, having been ntisoci*
ntt-id with the industry at -Spoknue,
Ue was at ono timo an active worker
in tho Swansen, aud has many locations iu the Windermere dinti-ict,
especially on Toby Creek. Tlio Bi
metiillist, reputed to be ouo of the beBt
silver load proipectN on Toby Creek, is
one oT liin locations. Ono thing about
Mi. Brown ia that he lean enthusiast
in prospocting, nnd lie has been so
often over the country that he knows
It pretty well, nud if everybody had
much faith in the Windermere uiMiict
as he that district would sund fccond
to nono in Uritlsh Cotumbii, A pleas-
nut ride of live miles over lho rolling
foothills between Athalmer and ihe
Selkirk Itoige brings us to the latest
location which Mr. Brown has mado.
This proporty is known as the Pilgrim
group, and ft is very ovfdbnc Mr.
Brown is a belter authority on Bunyan
than Bunyan was on mining for he
has named two of the claims tbe Pilgrim and the Progress respectively.
Ths mineral body on which the locations have been made is a calci'.e vein
outcropping along the foothill about
600 feet above the Columbia river.
Tbe property is thus in point of convenience not to be beaten in the Windermere district if subsequent developments prove the ore body to be sufficiently large and valuable. As yet of
course it is but a prospect. The ort
showing is a carbonate and grey copper, and Mr. Brown assures us it Is
rich in silver, and he looks on this
property as essentially a silver property. The oountry rook is slate, and in
some places there are quite strong Indications of a mineral ledge, but it
will require to bs exposed by open cuts
befote muoh can be known about it.
Ur. Brown informs us that hs has on
this ptepefty four parallel ledges having a surface ffhftwlng IB te 40 feet In
width. Four cfchns havs been located
on tht ledge,   At one point ws noticed
\ large outcrop of a calcite vein showing some copper stain.
DRAGON  MINE,
One of the first miners the writer
camped with in the country is Tom
Tones. To show tbat we appreciated
iiim ss a camp host we were delighted
co find bim in charge of development
work on the Dragon the other day.
The Dragon is owned by New Golden
British Columbia, and is located on
McKay's Gulch on Toby Creek. As
tbe writer arrived at the mine it wae
evident that something unusual had
happened, nnd by Mr. Jones's countenance it could be judged that hn had
good news.'     He had been despatched
the melting snows, and there were not
the facilities at hand to draw it off.
Otherwise the mine is an exceedingly
dry one and haa been found to be
favorable for working in every way.
The underground work tbat has been
done shows that the owners have a true
fissure vein and the properly is really
a repetition of a good Slocan silver-lead
proposition. The vein runs irom 4
inches to 3 feet in width. The walls
are excellent for economic mining, the
hanging wall being dolomite, and the
footwall a quartzita, and owing to
their solid quality uo necessity exists
for much timbering. The shaft has
been welt timbered for the short dis*
tance necessary to protect the falling
hy Mr. Mitcliell-luues, the Company's; jn 0f the decomposed surface ore, but
manager, to do assessment work on
the Dragon. This property has hitherto
had a fair showing of good ure. but on
'.hia occasion a strike has been mado
which places the Dragon ameug the
best copper prospects on Toby Creek,
The country rock is an argillite, nml
the gangue of the vein is calcite. A
tuuuul had beon driven for a distance
of 52ft. Hin. nt the time of our visit,
the direction being N. 22 E. After
running the tunnel ill feet Mr. Jones
drifted to ths east and struck a lino
body of chaloo-pyrite through whioh
he had run for 25ft, at the time of our
visit. Hii then sank ou the oro body
and when Mr. Mitchell Innes visited
the property since our visit the shaft
was down 40 feet vertically from
the surface in excellent ore. The
lead is 7 feet in width, well mineralised
throughout, and has a strike of N. and
S. with vertical dip. The property is
well located, being only about
4.500 feot above sea level. A first class
wagon road can be built right on to thu
ground, and tho steep face of tin slopo
of tho mountain, about 45degrees, will
allow of economical working by levels,
Mr. Mitchell Innes will push on development work on tho Dragon and pnt in
a good trail to the camp. Everywhere
we went along the creok we hoard expressions of delight at the news of tho
strike on the Dargon. Mr. Mitchell-Innes has stuck to N.R Kootenay so persistently and loyally that no man better deserves success, and we hope that
in the Dragon as well as tho Pretty
Girl he will have a property that will
develop into a profitable mine,
WINDSOR UHOVi*.
This group of claims adjoins the
Dragon, and is principally owned by
O. A. Brown and J. A. Stoddart. Mr.
Brown was naturally pleased with the
strike on tho Dragon, tending as it did
to establish tbe value of the oro deposits found on bis own property. The
WindsorGroup consist of threeclaiihs,
the Havana, Windsor, Niagara. The
lowest outcrop consists of a lead en
which a drift has been run for 24 feet,
Tbe lead is hero '60 inches in width and
presents a fine showing of copper oro.
This ore body is about 400 feot above
the Dragon tunnel, and Mr. Brown informs us that the higher outcrops
show a vein seven feet in width, on the
same width as that developed in tbe
Drngon, Where exposed by the tunnel
which has beon put in by Mr. Brown
the lead has a   strike  of   N*.   53   W.
and n dip O.f 85 tttlha north, or ucurly
vertical.
SANTIAGO OIIOU)*.
Vi.riltw    up    alto   Dragon   hjoujh��...
Mr. Brown is rnterested iu another
series cf locations. Tiie ores here are
also copper, and the development work
that has been done in the way of cuts
indicates a large body of ore. In the
Santiago claim the load runs east and
west, A cut exposes the loud to a
width of 8 feet without showing the
walls, nnd Mr. Bruwtt suys hu is satis-
lied from tho outcroppings that this
lead is 20 feet in width. In addition
to copper Mr. Brown states that this
oro assuys $') iu gold. This location
s 5,500 feer above sea level. The formation here runs north and south aud
a good indication of tbo strength of
the ledge is that it cuts the formation
iu dip and strike. Tho country rook
is slate. There aro a number of miners! hearing ledges in this parr, of the
country, and one of thorn seems to bo
an enormous thing judging from its
outcrops. Mr. Brown informs us that
he considers this ledge to be 200ft. wide
but as yet very little development work
has been dono ou it so that its mineral
value is problematical.
THE VULCAN,
This is another location held by theKow
Golden British Columbia, aud was oue
of the first locutions .taken up In the
district by W*. G. Mitchell Innes. It
is located about four miles from the
Toby Creek bridge on the left bank of
tho canyon of Toby Creek. There is
an enormous surfacu deposit of quartz
bore shewing somo nice copper ore in
the shape of carbonates. Several
shafts and pits havo been run a few
feot beneath ihu surface and a drift
hns been ruu 20ft. into tho ledge from
its exposure iu the face of the north
cliff of tho canyon. Development
work has, however, so far l��ou eon-
fined to the necessary assessment
work,
Till]   DO U'll 1KB
The plucky and enterprising manner
in which the Dol,.hine property has
beeu handled by Its owners bus dons
more than anything else to direct at
tuition to the mineral resources of
Toby Creek. Two years ago this property wos located by Bnpllsie Morijeau
on a narrow strip of ore to which he
was led by float whioh his wife bad
noticed oil the mountain side. He
sold the location to a Mr. Woods of
Vancouver, bat this gentleman, after
paying bis money, went to the Yukon
and troubled no mors about tha property. Last year the well-known
prospector, George Starke, finding ths
claim had mn out, re-staked it, and a
partnership was formed by Messrs, R.
A. Kimpton. Starke and Harrison.
They located three other claims, No.
616, Eureka, and Copper King, thus
forming a group of four olaims. The
ownsrs then started development work
in a systematic and efficient manner.
They have sunk a shaft 133 feet deep
and 8 by b feet in the clear. This
shaft has been sunk on the vein, and
has followed tha ore. At n depth of
about 50 fast drifts have been run
along the vain. Tha western drift has
been run 40 fast and tbe eastern drift
90 fast, At tha timo of our villi there
was abont tf feet of water ia tho
shaft, and work has been suspended
there, and waa being confined to tor*
face stripping. Tho water was, how-
over, purely  snrfucc water, caused by
otherwise the ground has boen found
firm and solid. Tho lead has a northwesterly strike and at the surface has
a dip of 62 to the south, but this dip
varies to 75 with depth. There is a
streak of rich carbonates running up
to ton inches in width in the centre of
the lead and another similar streak,
running up to five lnohes,ou the hanging wall. These carbonates were
thrown over* the dump till recently
when It was found that they assayed
$416 per ton, made up of gold $5,, silver 592.65 oa*. and copper 15.4 per
cent, The ore is a crystalline galena,
occurring *in pay streaks running parallel with the hanging wall, and presents
all the feu tn res of the chutes of ore
found in the high grade silver mines
of the Slooan. The following table of
assays will give nn accurate estimate
of the valge of the Delphine ore:

been employed in uncovering the outcrop oi the vein uud exposing it as far
ui possible. These surface openings
extended for 350 feet easterly and
700 feet westerly. These openings
have been extended to 1160 feet since

are between 50 and GO tons of ore on
tbe dump. 20 tons of ore have been
packed out and shipped to the Trail

mine in the Windermere district to
sbip a carload of ore. The Delphine is
located on a steep mountain six miles
