Fiank Berthune has returned from
his work ol constructing the trail up
Canoe river to conuect Donald with
Tete Jaune Cache. On the way up he
and his party had the unpleasant uess
of tii.ding the remains ol H. Guodlel-
low, the old trapper who died in the
shack at the Kinbasket mine. The
body had apparently been dead for DO
days, and the remains were duly interred by the party. The trail waa opened from Donald for about 130 miles to
a point on Canoe river, 48 miles from
tbe junction with the Columbia. The
poiut to which the trail was opened is
within five miles of what is known as
the big jam on Canoe river aud at a
point where the Indian trail breaks off
to Tele Jaune Cache. The trail is a
good one, and horses carrying from
200 to 260 lbs. of pack can easily pass
over it. The only danger lies in cross-
lug one er two of tbe rivers in high
water, the volume and swiftness of tbe
current sometimes carrying horses
down. The Government should take
eteps to throw trail bridges over these
streams. The cost would not be great
as the channels are narrow aud there
is abundance ot timber at hand. One
of the party, Fred Owens, went on
from the trail to Tete Jauue Cache,
and on his return reported that he
there met a government survey party
who were surveying a route in Iroin
Edmonton, He also met a party from
Kamloops. From the information he
waa able to obtain, the routes from
Edmonton and Kamloops are very unfavorable. That from Edmonton is
480 miles in length through a quantity
of muskeg countrr, while the route
from Kamloops ie 250 miles in length,
and is over very rough and precipitous
country. From Donald the distance is
only 180 miles and the road is so good
that there is not a hill to cross, and
the steepest portion of the trail is the
rise from the bed ot the Bluewuter to
the summit ef the ridge, within live
miles of Douald. Over 80 horses have
gone over the trail this season with
parties bound for the Peace river country, Frank Foldham, of Canal Flat,
went in with hia mate aud a pack
train of 16 horses, their destination
being Parsnip river. They took scythes
in with them Intending to cut sufficient
hay to provide for their horses in winter aud their intention is to stop two
Mr. Berthune received word frem
the Government Agent to stop further
work on tbe trail and he returned ac
cordingly. The rest of his party, A.
Morrow, F. Holliday, and T. Plunkett
were so impressed with the minetal
indications of the country that they
decided to prospect the district and so
have remained there, intending to go
on to the North Thompson. On the
way out Frank collected the furs
which Ooodfellow had left at Kinbas-
ket lake and brought them out to the
Government Agent. He thinks there
will be a large amount ol traffic in
there next season, as it is believed the
Fraser and Parsnip rivers offer as good
inducements to prospectors as any lhat
are to be found, while the route is unquestionably the best that can be got
into the interior. All information
that comes to hand from time to time
goes to show that the Golden Era Air
Line is the coming route and probably
the most important betoro the people
of British   Columbia   at   the  present
Th. Iteaald Postmaster.
We recently had occasion to castigate Postmaster Patmore of Donald
over his very improper conduct as a
public officer. Having done our duty
that was an end of the matter so far as
we were concerned. Mr. Patmore evi
deotly thinks otherwise. He is ths
correspondent for Donald ot the Kootenay Miner, and not satisfied with the
false part that he recently enacted In
election matters, he has contributed to
our contemporary another falsehood
which wa have just seen. The editor
ot Tub Era wss invited to go out and
write up some prospects iu which a
number ot Donald people were interested. He accepted, and while in the
company ot his hosts was shown a
piece ot white quartz covered with gold
leal to give it the appearance of gold,
but as the editor ot Tub Eka knows
his duty ss a gentleman to his host-,
and was not aware as to the object, it
would have been most improper for
him to exclaim, "Oh, that is salted."
The matter waa therefore treated casually until the party dispersed, when
he asked one of them the object of the
trick, and was informed that there
was a gentleman in the C.P.R, shops
who was fond of collecting specimens
and sending thein to his friends in the
east, and theuffair had been innocently
enough got up as a joke on him, Mr.
Patmore apparently judges other people by his own standard ot ignorance
and fraud, and hence drops into the
false position in which he has bo
often been found of late. If be would
devote the same attention to his postal
duties and his own affairs that be has
been devoting to such matters it would
be better for hiin aud for the postal
service. We don't believe thst the
Donald gentlemen who invited us to
pat-takoof their hospitality would join
him in any such low-dewu trfckorjji)

Shares in the Hall Mines Co. aro
dropping iu value owing to a falling
off in the value of the ore. Tho ore at
one time averaged 2*a per cent of copper and 16 ozs. of silver to the ton,
but the average for July was only 16
ozs. silver and 1} per cent aopper. The
output of the mine has also decreased
so that the Company has to purchase
iiuside ores to keep its smelter running.
The recent strike on the Sullivan
group has proved much richer than
was at first anticipated by the owners.
Four assays made gave the {.Mowing
values per ton. $53, $41, $54 and $87.
It is said $50 ore will uet a fair profit, and as the lead is about 28 feet in
width, there is every reason to believe*
that the Sullivan will equal some of
great'silver-lesd mines in the Northwest.
A. McLean and P. Nelson are more
than ever satisfied with their copper
discovery on McLean creek, over the
summit from Fifteen Mile creek. They
have located three claims in tbe basin
four miles from the summit, making
he properties about eight miles from
tho Columbia River. Tho lead averages fire feet io width and carries
three feet of ore. Below the main ledge
a find of nine inches of copper carbonates, has been msde. An assay by
Messrs. Cunningham and Harvey gave

A  Gloomy   Ontltiola,. -Rebellion    lu
London, Aug. 31.-Reports have
been reeeived here of a serious rebellion
having broken out in China.
Chinese statesmen complain that
Great Britain's offer o. assistance to
China against.any action of the Russian government came too lute to be of
any assistance.
A special dispatch from Shanghai
states that the Chinese minister at St.
Petersburg has reported to bis government that in his opinion the Chinese
question will precipitate a conflict
between Great Britain and Russia.
This state ot affairs, he says, is owing
to the British ambassador presenting
a note at St. Petersburg of such a
peremptory nature,demanding freedom
of enterprise in regions where Russian
influence is supposed to predominate,
that Count Murayicff cannot accept it.
The Chinese minister, indeed, expects
that a conflict will certuiuly break out
before the end of the year,

(Edited  by E. A. HaOOEN.)
The new Ministry have very wisely
issued a Gazette extra setting forth
tjie whole of tho correspondence be-
tween tho Lieut.-Uovernor and. the
Timner Ministry, which led to that
nest of corruptionlsts being dismissed.
Tbe correspondence fully justifies the
action of the Lieut.-Governor, sho-.v-
ing him to be a man ot integrity, and
of constant vigilance over the public
interests, instead of a place-hunter for
his sou as the Turner Government gave
out. Briefly stated tbo facts are these.
The Turner Government attempted to
use tlio public funis in a grossly corrupt way to influence tbo olectlpnt. To
this the Governor refused to givo his
sanotlon. They attempted to make
appointments in haste for similar purposes. Tlies-j too were refused. They
lii'st. lepra-aontod to thu Governor
that thoy had n majority in tho new
house, antl then w||-jn his Excellency
got information for hlmselt and challenged them with the (act tbey admitted that the Government was in a minority, and was defeated. The Governor
had opposed the proposed corruption in
regard to the Cassiar elections, both as
to tho provisions of the electoral bill
and as to tbe extensions asked for by
tho Cabinet to enable them to manoeuvre the elections as much as possible. Premier Turner broke faith with
the Governor by failing to keep appointments with him tu discuss certain
matters to whioh be had taken exception. The Cabinet resorted to the
lowest trickery to got the Governor's
signaUre to warrants whicli ho hud
already rejected, and they appear lo
have baited at no lying and misrepresentation to achieve their corrupt and
disgraceful objects. Iu the history of
constitutional Government we have
never s-'Gii such a recital of low-down
M-iclaory on tho part of a Cabinet.
Unfiled in their chicanery, tho Turner
Government resorted to the usual rs
coin's.'- of the shtlfflor by charging that
���roposals bad been mado to them io
lake tho son of the Lieut. Governor
into their Cabinet, and Insinuating
Hiat the Lleiit.-Govcrnoi' was belli nl
tho suggestion. His Excellenoj
scorches .Mr. Turner over the vile siig
a-os'ion, and has so thoroughly exi osel
'he chicanery of the Cabinet that 'he
Piirtier-PooleyBailior-aMariin oombinn

In previous issues we have referred
to the present ineffective system of
dealing with trails, so as to keep them
open for traffic. In South East Kootenay an inspector of trails wns recently
appointed, whose business it should be
to see that the trails are kept open and
in an efficient state of repair. As a
matter ot fact we believe the Government are liable for damages to persons
deterred by blocked trails, as the law
presumes that once the Government
spends inonev on a road or trail it
must be kept open nnd in a safe state
for traffic, We have travelled over the
trails of the district a'good deal this
season and have failed to find one that
is kept open and in a proper state of
repair. The orthodox state of trails
appears to be that they should be
blocked with fallen timber, and that
the bridges should he in an unsafe condition through rotteu timbers. This
is quite contrary to what is the recognised order of things, und if tbe appointment of an inspector of trails for
the district will placo communication
with the inland districts on n better
footing then the appointment ought to
made. Another plan that should work
well in conjunction with this scheme
i��the letting of yearly contracts for keep
ing the trails open, a separate contract
being let for each section of trail. This
would affoid steady employment to a
number of men and would be a means
of traits being kept in an efficient stuts
for puhlic traffic.
The Golalen Hospital is an institution of which the district, may justly
feel proud. The Trustees deserve credit
for the way in which they have managed the institution from the first, anal
the proud name which it earned in the
days of ils infancy lias been jealously
guarded by the Trustees ond by the
medical and nursing stuff. Iu the retirement of Capt, Armstrong and Mr.
Warren, J.I'., Ilio Hospital loses the
services of two gentlemen who have
given their whole-souled time and attention to the best interests of tho
institution during the term uf their
Trustce-shlDa In Mr.'CI. II.'Parson,
too, the Hospital has had a secretary
who bad so identified himself with tho
welfare of iIiu Institution that his
resignation cannot fail to be a serious
loss to its welfare. Wo have no doubt
that tho gentlemen who have been
elected to till the various vacancies will
do thoir utmost to maintain the good
n.irao whicli tliu Hospital has already
earned. Iu having secured the services
of Dr. Taylor as medical superintendent, the Golden Hospital has been particularly fortunate. Dr. Taylor had a
high reputation among the faculty
during his term at Montreal, and tlio
ability which he displayed then has I
been amply iu evhieucu during the1
time he bus had charge of the Golalen j
Hospital, many ot the operations per*;
formed by him having been as difficult
and intricate as they have been attend* i
ed with successtul results. In Nurse
Holt and her assistants the Hospital
has also been most fortunate, aud
nover were nurses more deservedly
appreciated by ther patients than in
the case of the Golden Hospital. We .,
wish the institution a long und successful cireer, and that success can be
gruitly assured by iho people ef the

The Blnewater Country,���Blcli Pros-
pent. Obtained.
Under the tender care of H. Cooper
and C. Baines, ne paid a visit to the
recent discoveries in the Bluewater
country. These gentlemen, with the
assistance of a Government gran ,
have opened a trail branching off
the Rluewater trail, aud taking the
ridge between the Bluewater and tha
Wait a-bit. As we travel along the
mineral character of the country is
evidenced by a series of quartz veins
crossing the country, until we camp in
the open for the night at the foot of
the mountain on which the eluiins aro
located. A daylight breakfast, and we
snldlo and mount for the long climb.
Ton or twelve miles have already been
accomplished from Donald and a dis
tance of another three or four miles
lies ahead of us up the mouiiiaiu side.
The last part of the trail is particularly
stoop, but a good road could begot
right, oa to the mine by some zig-zag
grading. The mountain up which the
ascent is made lies between the Blue-
water on one hand and Gid's creek on
the other. At last the camp on the
summit is reached, and the aneroid
shows an altitude of 11850 feet above
aoa level. Messrs, Cooper and Baines
- have here located t.voclaiina culled the
Acorn and tho Chestnut. A mine discovered hero would be in an ideitl place,
easy of access, with abundance of
wood and wator at hand. In a draw
a little above the camp we final the
first evidences of mineral deposits in
the shape of a segregation of stringers
shooting through the slute in all directions and all carrying ore, which
looks rich and promising. Free gold
has been found iu those segregations,
and that the ore is high grade is evidenced from the face that an assay of
of an average sample gave a return of
$4 in gold, WO in silver, $30 in copper,
and $31 in lead, or a total of $112 per
ton. The matrix cairying these deposits is a crystalizcd quartz similar
to that found on tiie property being
operated by T. A. Knowlton on the
Clearwater, and also the same as tliat
forming the gangue of the lends iu the
Gid's and Brown's creel: localities to
the south-east. The first open cut
made into these deposits is at a point
7,200 feot above sea-level where a rich
stringer, six inches in width, appears,
Another open cut has. been made in a
leader seven inches in width. Tho
'formation has a Hip at this point of liO
to the south, but is considerably
wrenched about by a porphyry dike
about 110 tan in width, which tuns
n-irth 70 east. Tiis porphyry overruns tho slate, which is au argilllte on
the oust fid) of tho porphyry dyke,
and rakes tha form oi atalcajso sl.ite on
the west side. The itrgillite hns a
S'.rlke of 10 degre-s west of north, and
dtps 25 degrees to the east. Crossing
the divide a draw leads to a point in
the summit, broken by a sa'itilo, and
bore the main lead is plainly visible
following along tho porphyry dyke
already referred to. The lead is a
strong, well defined body of white
quartz, and is doubtless the souroe of
the numerous stringers of rich ore io
which wo hare referred, Tlio porphyry riyko foruis tbo footwall, and
the talcose slate the banging wall. At
a point in this saddlo 7,.r>C0 feet above
sea level an open cut has been made
into the lead tliroug\ the porphyry
dyke, Tho lead has not been eut
'.'through, so that it is impossible to
i "for,n any opinion as to whether or not
It contains a payable body of ore, but
the work that has been done shows
pockets of rich grey copper and galena,
similar to that being taken out bv T.
A. Knowlton from the Little Brother
claim. The lead has a dip of 21 to the
west. If development work should
���prove that the property is an ore producer, Messrs. Cooper and Baines will
have in this a valuable property,
owing to its convenient location, and
the fact that the configuration of the
country will allow of its heing easily
worked. T. Forrest, of Donald, has
an extension staked on the north, and
W. H. Lee, of Calg iry, holds the extension on tho south. The lead appears
from its position, und the u Ijacent
strata to be the same as tbat on which
Mr. Knowlton is at work five miles
further on.

Such suffering as rheumatism causes
