A WORLD HAN ON THE WING.
Rlclineei ef Ore Sain pie. Sent to tlie
World's Fair.
Fort Steele, in my opinion, will be
much better known to the outside
world in a few vents than it is at the
present time. Having given distances
this far, and with what other information I learned that has already been
published, it is to be hoped that some
one will be benefitted thereby. The
valley may be 10 miles wide hereabouts
but.
lid
ast, it is a diffi
cult matter to decide as it is a junction
of valleys.    S niie might place the distil ice at 20 miles.      Thai south wards.
to tne boundary   Bl Tobacco Plains, is
about (io miles.     Whenever I give the
distance oi  one place  to another, it is
tvhat t believe to be as  nearly correct
as  it is  possible for people to  judge.
11 it'ing i be past year I hive had occasion   to   think  that  there  are   some
terrible   fibbers  iu British Columbia.
For instance, I have asked the distance
11 i certain place.    Nine miles wis the
reply     I   o.ikout my w.itch, note I the
timo and walked 15 minutes.     Here I
may state th it I can  walk three aides
per hour with ease, and  it is  the general way in which I measure distances
ever trails, but the next party puts the
distance ut five miles.    I looked at my
watch again, walked  briskly for two
hours, met another man and asked him
the distance, when, to my astonishment, I was' told that  it was   somo-
where about seven miles.     No matter
where I am travelling, on foot, or with
a horse, I ask every man, woman and
youngster that I meet the distai.ee to
the point I am he.i���iin,;, just for the
fun of it aud to see how opinions vary.
I nut a mm a few days ago who
has been worrying through my letters
for over a year J  his first words were,
" For Heuren's sake, Tomo, when in
���- are you gaing to lot up writing
about farms aud mines ?   For a time I
thought you would never get through
telling us about  Cariboo;   then vott
took the coal mine fever, and you are
forever writing about  what soon old
mossback  h is  accomplished;   but I
expect now  th.it it will be   Kiotenay
mines straight for the rest of the year."
I replied th.it he   reminds I  ine very
much of the boy  who, ou a very col,I
diy   hirol   a   horso  a.il   buggy, for
which he paid *}.!.    After being out for
some timo he suffers 1 so m ir.li with
the cold that he thought crying would
help him out.     Just   thou ho mot a
gentle-nun   who asked   " Waal's the
���n.ittor ?"   T io boy ro.ilio I th.it he was
old.
man,
that among these aro to be found various opinions. Some like to read one
thing, some another. Many wore delighted with the story prime I not long
since outitled Burke au I Hire, whilst
a few pitched at mo like a mother-in-
law, and said that I ''should be
ashamed of myself to be representing a
paper that would print such a horriblo
tale!'' S-ini* readers al u'ra the editorials groatlv, dicluriug that they
contain the choicest E iglis'.i and tho
brightest of ideas, others say they are
not worth publishing. Sime people
like the C.ty Elitor, and an* pleaso I
to see him "making hs murk" ou tlie
World, "for," siy they, " we knew
him when ho was n little boy and we
hoed potatoes iu the same Hold," otliers
say he is "too smart" nod that they
would '-like to pull his long hair.'.'
Our manager is the fi lest man iu the
Province with hosts of people, but like
the tree with good fruit, having many
clubs beneath it, he has many enemies
beneath him. Wore I to tell of all the
fault Aiding I would have a difficult
mutter to deal with ; so I will quit
right here, af'.er mentioning that the
writer has to listen to about two hours
advice in every twenty-four. This at
tirst annoyed me, and I was prepared
to tight to a finish about every other
day, but now I an delighted to have
as many us possible toll me how the
World should bo run, and it will always bo taken in good part. 0 le
gentleman told ints that ho was surprise I til it I h id down so long a time,
and by his repeating the following
story to me. readers can judge for
themselves his reason. A Yankee
orator was ouce miking a speech, and
is lie waxed eloquent he suid. "0 if I
0 ily had the wings of an eagle I would
il. to the remotest corners of this vast
republic, and,"- Here ho was interrupted by an uver.ge American boy,
who shouted, "Suut up, you old fool;
von wotil I be shot for a goose before
you 'flowed' a mile." So long as I
can suit the in inageineiit of the World
by stating plain facts about the resour
ces of o ir glorious Province, I will bi
fully satisfied. Take away our mines,
au I instead of our rich soil (the products of which are attracting the
whole world) give us barren laud, and
i here would be but little besides salmon
uud gossip to write about. The
World circulates and is read in everv
civilized land where the sun shines,
and it is information about our
resources that will still attract people
from foreign shores to ours, which is
admitted bv those who know to be one
of the most favorel lands iu the world
to-day. Tho more I see of it, the
more -
1 love her grassy hills,
Hor thousand bright and gushing rills,
Her sunshine anl her storms;
Her rough and rugged rocks that  rear
Their hoary heads high iu the air
Iu wild fantastic forms.
I love her rivers deep and wide,
Those mighty  streams that seiward
glide,
To seek the ocean's breast;
Her forests and her valleys fair.
Her  flowers that scent the morning
air,
All have their charms for me.
11 writing of British Columbia's
resources I have always tried to -live
accurate information. True, sometimes; and again on matters I have to
rely ou my own Opinion, winch may
sometimes be far from the murk, and
they differ; and us I am travelling

To write of the beautiful scenery

I o.uitte I to make mention of the

the Windermere section. They are
about 17 miles from Windermere, half
a mile from McKay's ranch, ou St.
Clair creek, at the head of a canyon
800 foot deep, and with perpendicular
walls. They have been regarded by
old settlers uud Indians as possessing
wonderful curative qualities. Miners
and prospectors often camp ut tiie

The Coiiiu**;-* Crisis.
London, Aug. 3 -Iu the House of
Commons to-day Sir Ellis Ash mead
Bart let t (Conservative), member for
the Ecclesall division of Sheffield,
asked the Government whether since
the stoppage of the freo minting of
silver iu I idia there had been us stated
a depression in the value of securities
held in England to the amount of
��130,000,000, whether the supply of
gold wus not ins iffioient to the monetary requirements of trade, and what
measures the Government proposed to
avert a financial crisis.
Prime Minister Gladstone replied
that he did not know how to ascertain
the truth of the assertion that a decline
of the amount referred to had taken
iduce in the value of securities held in
England. He did not believe that the
supply of gold was insufficient for
trade requirements, and he could not
announce measures to avert a crisis
that he did not believe would occur.

Tho smoke from the fires now raging
in the timber on thu slopes of the

duties in a more conscientious manner.
He is succeeded ns mining r, cordoi' by
W. J. Goepelof Nelson and as assessor
and collector by O. G. Dennis of Kaslo.
Mr. Goepel is a thorough business
man, and the money he has spent in
mining iu West Kootenay bus surely
taught him the intricacies of the mining laws. He has large and varied
interests in the district and will make
a first-class official. Mr. Dennis bus
been long enough in office not to need
an introduction. As an official he is
popular, simply because he is nut
above the people whom he serves. At
present he is acting as mining recorder
at New Denver, and the people over
tliere were getting up a petition praying that he be permanently stationed
at that place. Mr. Dennis will make
as efficient an assessor and collector as
Mr. Goepel a mining recorder, and if
the government continues to make
such appointments iu this district,
the people will have no just cause fur
complaint. - Tribune.
A Proiiilaliijr Local I.in ou llouacr Luke.
The most authentic news of a find in
the Duncan River country is that furnished by "Dick" Gallop of Balfour,
who has spent some time prospecting
along the shores of Houser lake. Last
mouth he ran across ):ood looking
ground at a point six miles above
Duncan City and buck from the hike
about a mile and a half. On prospecting it he found three parallel veins,
one of them fully twenty feet wide, the
other two being between eight and ten
feet. The ledges appear to be well
defined, stratus of clay lying between
the vein mutter and the walls. The
large ledge was crosscut in three places,
showing the ore bo 'y to be at least
twelve feet wide. Picko I specimens of
the ore assayed all the way from 500
to GOO ounces in silver, aud rumples
carefully taken ran from (12 to 108
ounces. A tunnel wus run iu on the
big ledge for twenty feet without using
powder, so easy is the vein matter to
work. The ground is about 900 feet
higher than the lake and is easily
reached with pack animals. Nelson

THE   UPPER
MATTERS   IN
CO'JtfrRY.
Mr.
A. McVittie has gone to Golden  j��� a few ,]H..gi
We have endeavored to obtain a few
notes as to what is doing in these
matters iu the Upper Country, and
have pleasure in appending the following :
At Wiufield Park ranch, belonging to
Mr. Brownrigg, the crop of outs looks
particularly well. Mr. Brownrigg
broke up a fair amount of ground lust
autumn, and his crop ou it looks very
promising. On tins ranch the question
of irrigation is so very simple that Mr
Brownrigg has a decided advantage
over many of his neighbors.
The next ranch is at Wolf creek, 114
miles distant. This ranch goes in
principally for cattle raising, and more
nnd more aceiitiou is given to getting
.i good crop of liny tliun to grain raising..
The hay crop has not looked so well
for years and haying should commence
with what the future appears to have
iu store, for them.
but will return shortly.
Col Baker is expected here next
week.
H. B. Alexander, with an expert, is
examining placer properties near Perry
Creek.
Judge Rouleau, Lord Norbiir.v,Dotig-
las Dick and Lie it. Cochrane, came in
per steamer Gwendoline.
Charles Levett has added a new bar
to the Steele House ; the hotel is full
of guests.
M. Pbillipps, Indrau agent, has gone
to Windermere to fix up some Indian
matters,
It is reported that the Windermere
copper mines have been sold to au
English syndicate, and that the Lust
Chance will likely be bought by the
same parties.
Instructions have been receh e 1 by Mr.
Leslie Hill to close the " North Star"
for the present, but it is hoped that it
is only temporary, and that when
matters are arranged it will be opened
again with a large force of men.
Mr. Hanson has moved his saw mill
from Windermere, and will put it up
on the west side of Kootenay river near
Bale ranch.
Work is progressing satisfactorily on
the F,. ��. K. Co's ground.
The Sherman law. which Congress
is expected to repeal, is ai* act directing the purchase of silver bullion mid
the issue of treasury notes thereon.
It was approved by ihe President July
14th. 1 Kill),and went into effect iJOdays
after its passage. By the first section
of the act the Secretary of t ho Treasury
Was directed to purchase from time to
time silver bullion to the aggregate
amount of l.'iOO.O'iO ounces, or so much
thereof as might lie offered each month
at the market price thereof, not exceeding 81 for every three hundred nnd
seventy-one & twenty-five hundredths
grains of pure silver, and to issue in
payment for such purchases ol silver
bullion treasury notes of the United
(States in denomination of not less than
91 nor more than $1,C00. Section 2
made such treasury notes legal tender
in payment of all public and private
debts, except where otherwise expressly
stipulated in the contract, nnd further
enacted that thoy should be receivable
{or customs, taxes and public diics,and
that upon demand of llie holder of any
Wasa, the residence of Mr. Hanson
is readied after a journey of but four
and a half miles from the lust mentioned ranch. Here is at once noticed
au air of improvement, Mr. Hanson
being one of the energetic class -al-
wajs improving. Besides owning and
running a saw mill, stopping house
and store,be has a small baud of slock,
and rejoices iu the possession of by fur
the best garden in this putt of the
Kootenay district. Vegetables of all
kinds have been in full swing for several weeks, and the corn and tomatoes
should lie ripe in a few days.
Mr. Hanson lias just purchased an
adjoining piece of laud from the iv V.
Co., which will increase the size of his
meadows and make him sale against a
hard winter.
Mr. Mathers has a ranch ou the opposite side of the Kootenay, a few miles
further down, which is particularly
well off ns regards meadows ; be also
has a good crop of outs. Mr. .limbers
also owns a saw mill which is now
working near Foit Steele.
At Fort Steele up to the present little
has been done in the way of funning
though Messrs. Galbraith and Leve't
have some nice looking potatoes; however, Mr. Galbraith having now got
his irrigation ditch stalled, which will
supply the whole place with water, we
may expee*. to se; llie various residents
on the townsite surrounded by their
own vegetable and Hower gardens, as
the soil, undoubtedly, only needs
moisture to produce crops equal
to any in the district.
GOLDEN   HOSPITAL.
A public meeting was held in the
Kootenay House ou Thursday evening
to receive the report of the committee
appointed at the meeting held iu the
School House on June 11th, and to
arrange for future action.
The following gentlemen were among
those present! dipt. Gordon, W.
Miller, C. W. Bubur, E. Plow-right,
G. Mattick, Cupt. Armstrong, J. F.
Armstrong, C. A. Warren, J. C.
Greene, F. Lang, H. Coiinaclier, W.
McNeish. W. T..it, ,J. Marshall, M.
Dainard, F. Glover, Mr. Woodley, A.
P. Cummins, A. P. Patrick of Calgary,
G. E. Manuel of Donald, and W. G.
Neilsou of Beaver.
Mr. J. F. Armstrong having been
culled to the chair, the secretary explained that since the lust meeting ihe
committee hud succeeded iu obtaining
from the Prov. Government the oiler
of 82,000 towards the building expenses, a free site from the Dominion
Government and a liberal response to
the cull for subscriptions, the amount
promised being about SI,200 with one
or two places to hear from. The secretary also stated that the building site
had been chosen and duly surveyed by
a JJoin. Land Surveyor, and that
building plans were being prepared by
a firm of architects iu Calgary who
had supplied a rough sketch of the
proposed hospital. The sketch was
submitted to tbo meeting and appeared
to be generally approved.
After a general informal discussion
it was decided to form the Golden
Hespital Society, the present coinmittte
with tiie addition of Mr. Jus. Brady
to represent Thunder Hill, Iieing unanimously elected to act as trustees for
the first year. The management will
ut once cull for tenders for the erection
of the building, which will be pushed
forward with all possible despatch,
and will al-o take prompt steps for the
engagement of a doctor. Judging from
the evident interest expressed by those
present and ihe many pi onuses of
future support our hospital bids fair to
he a great success. The hands of t lie
present management will be greatly
strengthened by the prompt payment
of nil subscriptions to Mr. H. Con-
naciier, Sec.-Treasurer.
