It will be remembered that some
sensation was created at Donald last
season by the discovery of a large
gold copper lead on what is now
known as Brown's creek. Several
claims were staked out on the lead,
mid it was reported that some eastern
capitalists were likely to take tbe matter up and do some development on it.
That did not come off, so certain residents of Donald took the matter in
hand themselves and have been doing
development work. Determined to see
something of the new strike wo visited
the ground the other day in company
with tbe discoverer, A. W. Brown. A
good trail takes us to Copper Creek,
about ei.ht miles out from Donald.
We don't know to what tbe creek
owes its name as we have not heard of
any discoveries there, though the float
in the creek looks as if it were iu a
likely copper country. Ou the way
we pass the shaft sunk on the Yellow
Jacket claim some years ago. What
the inducement was for doing this
work we don't suppose anybody knows
as the lead is so very small and the
quartz appears to be barren of any
is also passed on the way some five
miles out from Donald. Well we got
as far as Copper Creek. Tho trail suddenly here assumes perpendicular
form and is so steep that it is a difficult matter to get horses down and up.
The next creek crossed is known as
Grizzly Creek, and while tbe trail is
better than at Copper Creek there is
ample room for improvement. Ten
miles from Donald we come to the
Wait-a-bit Falls. Travellers generally
camp here for the night. The sight of
the Kails is a grand one, the water
falling in immense body, with deafening roar, foi a distance of 20 feet. An
excellent bridge has been built over the
Wait-a-bit this season by Mr. Brown,
and the trail is continued ou the other
side across Brown's creek, and thence
up the summit of the mountain,
is a fairly go'od one as far ns the summit it is.a perfect terror from there to
the head of the creek below the camp.
Down the meutainside it is in places
perpendicular, narrow and langerous,
while at the bottom there are such bog
holes that it is nothing short of
cruelty to animals to put tho horses
over it. Only $150 was granted for
the work by tho Government and
Mr. Brown has hnd to do the rest.
This includes the bridgo over the
Wait-a-bit, so that with the extent of
ground that had to be covered it is not
surprising that Mr. Brown reckoned
be eould give no more time to trail
building than necessary, and had to be
satisfied with a means of access, leaving a better trail for futur.; consideration. There is nn doubt at all that an
exc llent lit e of trail can be got by
following Brown's Creek, though it
may be more expensive to build.
The bed of the eteek is no sooner
reached than the mineral character of
the country becomes apparent, being
cut in all directions by quartz stringers, while the creek bed is full ot float
carrying mineral, mainly copper.
Within a mile of the head of ibe creek
a turn is made for
which is a little below the summit of
the mountain. This necessitates a
c'imb up a creek bed for a height of
something like 3,500 feet. The camp
is reached at last, and after dinner we
proceed to explore the ground. Numerous stringers are seen to traverse the
monntain side, outcropping here and
there. There are also two series of
leads in the vicinity of the camp.
One, the more northerly, is evidently
a copper-bearing series, while tbe
other gives more promise of oarrylng
the precious metals. The first consists
mainly of two leads, each four feet, in
width, out-cropping on the summit, nt
a point 7,.'100 feet above sea level.
These leads are situated in a dyke of
porphyry, which rises between the
limestone snd the talcose schists common to that part of the country.
From a bluff on the Gid's creek side of
the mountain it can be seen that theso
run into one another at a depth of 200
feet below the summit, forming one
lead, which could be easily developed
below the point of junction for lot 0
feet. A short tunnel on this vein
would show at small cost whether it
is of any commercial value, and as to
what the extent of that value is. This
lead ia altogether undeveloped as yet,
bat that it is a strong body is evident
from the fact that it traverses the
country across Gid's creek on one side
of the summit and across Brown's
creek on tbe other side, and there nre
several claims located along its course,
so that its extent is well-known.
That the loud is mineral bearing is
evident from the largo amount of flout
quarts, carrying considerable pieces of
chalcopyrite, found in the bed of the
creek below.
has a strike ol 70 west of north, with
a dip of 20 to the west. The strike of
tbe porphyrv dyke and the leads therefore conforms to that of the country
rock, which is however cut by the dip
of the leads as the country rock dips
at an angle greater by ten degrees.
The second series of mineral bearing
rocks lies to the south about half a
mile. The indications of ore in thesr
rocks aro entirely different from the
other, as the stringers abound in specimens of grey copper, galena, and iron
pyrites, whicli is certain to be gold
bearing. It. is in this series of rocks
that development work is being done
ut present. A drift has been run for n
distance of fifteen feet into a ledge said
to be three feet in thickness, but whicli
appears to bo only a stringer of tht
main lead, and this, in that event,
will probably be found farther south
than the present workings. Seven
claims have been located by Donald
people on these ledges. Messrs. Brown
and Lantoy own the Copper Xing and
Mary Ann claims; Messrs. Forrest
and Vye the Union Jack; Donald
Prospecting Association the Sno'.vflukc;
Mr. Manuel the El Dorado; Messrs.
Pitts anal Leo the Eureka; and Messrs.
Lee and Brown the Copper Queen. We
picked up some fine prospects of galena
and gold-bearing quartz on the El
Dorado. Wood and wuter are plentiful, and the location is a capital one
for a mine should further prospecting
reveal deposits of value.

May 1st, 1898,
Editor op The Golden Era :
Dear Sir,- I write you a few lines
to let you nnd friends know of our tri|.
nnd all about tho Edmonton route to
We left Calgary on the 24th day ol
January with our horses and outfit
We proceeded about 20 miles north of
Edmonton to a ranch, giving oats lo
our horses three times a day tu
strengthen them. We left thereon
February 21st and made Lesser Slave
Lake in 16 days. Resting 3 days we
made Peace ttiver Landing in i)J days,
Dunvuaan in 4 days, aud Fort St.
John in 7 days, in all from Edmonton
tJ St. John in 31J days. We left tit.
John on April 1st, going up Peace
river 30 miles, then up Half Wi-y
river to the secoi d fork, and then up
thesecond fork to head waters of saint-,
thence overland to tbe summit which
we reached 10 days ngo. We will have
to wait here till the snow goes down,
probably 10 days or more. We are
about 60 miles from Fort Graham on
Findley rivor. When we reach there
wc will go on to Pick Lake into which
the Black or Mood river flows, and go
d-iwn it and up the Liard to Lake
Francis. We are ahead of all patties
which left Edmonton overland and arc
camped where the California outfit
which left Edmonton, Aug. 2nd, 1897,
were. From Fort Graham to Pick
Lake is about 100 miles. People don't
need to rely ou maps, they are not correct and we have seen a good many of
them. The route is no good, nothing
but morass all the way and lots of
places no road or trail. We travelled
on ice nearly 600 miles. There were
at loast 1G0 outfits on the trail, we
passed them all and here we are within 60 miles of Inspector Moody and
police who were sent out by the government last summer, and we will get
ahead of thein. Dead horses lie all;
along the trail by hundreds. One out- J
fit alone lost 126 cut of 13,. head. We
have not lost a horse but we carried
oats all the way till April 10th, and
we have good horses, Each horse
hauled liOOIbs on toboggans. All the
outfits behind us are building boats on
Peace river and are taking the water
route from there. Nobody can follow
us, being too late, as the Smoky river
was hreakiug up as we passed. We
came up Peace river nearly 300 miles
and ovei 200 miles on Half Way river.
We have not seen a single miner on
Peace river. There is very little gold
ou the east sides of the Rockies. Tito
Ashcroft route is the best unless there
<S a route along the Columbia valley.
I pity people who leave Edmonton
with pack horses in the spring as most
of the trail is morass.

Edmonton overland route all the way.

A convention of the opposition mem*

leader and the discussion of other
important matters, is being held at
Vancouver today.
Says the Nelson Tribune: "Tho
events of the past week have demount rut oil that the opposition party is

members of that party consider themselves strong enough -to handle the
affairs of tho province without the
assistance of Hon. Robert Beaven or

The-Province says : " An instance
uf how loosely the laws of the province
havo been drawn by the late government has been brought to the notice of
the public through the-proteut-s entered'
after tho recent elections. In the reply
to tho protest entered against the election of Col. Baker, Messrs. Tapper,
Peters & Potts, as counttel for Col.
Bul;er, ask that the ..petition be die*.
tni-ssed on'lhe grounds, among others,
* tliat the supreme court had not had
conferred on it any authority to try
election petitions; that the officer required hy thu act to he appointed by
tho chief justice to attend to the pro
-limlnaries in such ea-ses has never
been appointed, and that, while the act
inquires tho security for costs to bd
deposited in the Bank of England, the
money has not been so deposited.'
"This odd position ot affairs arises
from tho fact, that the British Columbia statues provide that when no local
act has boen passed tho Britmh-fltatutes
tire te 'be followed. Ju a matter so
vitally important as this, the government neglected to pass the neetfisnry
legislation, and. ns a consequence,
when protests are entered, tlie form o(
proceedure is identical with that of
the English courts, although nothing
is so-plain as the fact that regulations
which might meet tho requirements in
the old country, might be wholly un-
suite 1 to the conditions bore.
" Of course the contention is that no
one would expect the phraseology of
tho British act to be taken literally
hero. For instance, when litigants
pay money into court in England, they
pay it into the Bank' -of "England.
Mere the process is to pay it directly
into court. It is hardly likely that
auy judge would dismiss a petition on
such a ground as this, but t lie .absence
of au act flamed to suit local conditions shows the extraordinary enro-
lessness with which tho affairs of the
province have boen administered."
A despatch from Victoria says that
Col. Baker will rosigu his seat and
retire to pastoral lifo at Cranbrook.
Ex-Premier Turner finds that his business interests will nocassitate his retirement from public life. Ho will
probably leavo fur England shortly.
Whilst in office, the Turuerites were
very patriotic, but sitting in Opposition lias no charms for thein.
In a recent issue the Montreal Witness says: ''Mr, Martin quitted Dominion politics and went to British
Columbia where lie has speedily
emerged from the main crowd and become one of the lenders, if not the
principal leader of the opposition. Mr.

A Great
Copper  Bonanza In East
'The Mines' Development, Trust and
Guarantee company have taken hold
��� of  and  are  developing a tremendous
-copper property about four and a half
miles   west  of Windermere  in East
-Kootenay.     Four claims are included
in the group, of which the Swansea is
'the main one.
There are  three shafts in this pro-
\ iperty at  intervals on the vein of   150
-feet.   Shaft No. 1 shows in the bottom
Jour feet of  copper carbonates of an
��� average   value of  24 per cent copper.
At shaft No. 'i tho ore  is ,'10 feet avido.
.'Samples assay from G per cent to iiO
per cent copper. This is said to be
one of the moat wonderful blowouts of
'Copper ever seen. -Shaft Nc. 8 is doavn
'SO feet and shows four feot of mineral
averaging 15 per cent copper.
The nvcrago value of the vein matter
all over is about 15 per centum. Aud
thcie are already 150 tons of high
--shipping grade ore ou the dump. It is
tho intention of the Alines' Develop-
ment to sink shafts No. 1 and 2 to a
i .uniform depth of 75 feot. and connect
them by a drift at that level. And
work haa already been started with
this end in view. The vein is a true
1 -fissure and contains an immense ton-
^.lutge of.ricli copper ore.
Arrangements have been made with
the Canadian Paicific railway for a
'���through rate from Windermere to
['Trail by water and rail. At the
smelter this ore on account of the'hlgh
i copper value will command a very high
1 premium and the mine can be worked
[ajit A profit from the first.
���Later on. when   a  subsidiary com-
^ipany has been formed, a Jong working
'tunnel   is   contemplated,   which   will
open up tbe ground from end to ond.
It is highly creditable to the energy
.and  enterprise  of  Rossland that the
men coiiRccteal with the exploitation of
this ureat prospect are all citizens of
(IRosslnnd.    And there can be no doubt
that they cau be depended on to open
dt up in a  workmanlike way, and add
another   gr.-at   proalucer to the mines
1 aotganized in and managed from Ross-
i aland. ��� Rossland Leader.

up to die some time ago by some of the
best doctors of the United States, I
came to Canada last autumn terribly
ill, and had lost all hope. Suffering
agonies from inflammatory rhe mutism, I was strongly urged to use
Paine's Celery Compound. I gave it a
trial as recommended, and the first
bottle did mo so much good I continued
with the medicine until I had used
seven bottles, when I found myself
perfectly curol; indeed, I never felt
better iu all my life than at present.

What the   Winnipeg Froo Pre,* Say,
The performance in the rings and
on the platform was all of it good and
some of it extra good. In the latter
class would fall the bareback riding of
littlo Edua, who perforins the difficult
feat of turning a somersault on the
back of a galloping horse A very
taking act was that by two artists, one
of whom held up a long slippery pole
while the 'Other performed various
pretty feats upon tho top of it. Two
iaaly acrobats did some balancing work
on the trapoze, even swinging through
a wide arc while standing upon the
bar. Two-sets of threo men did soino
very good tumbling feats. The flying
ladder and .flying Tings were both
entertaining, as was the pefortnnnce of
tavoof the acrobats in Hying leaps,
the Uttor heing tho best exhibition of
the kind ever seen hero, A little squad
of clowns played hnseball with firecrackers ��nd in other ways created
amusement. Four traineal horses did
some very clover work In tho rinu, A
team of four, two gent la-men and two
ladies contributed a series of tumbling
the j acts. The show elided with the usual
. | hippodrome races, Including the Rom-
j an'chariot race,pony race, man against
' horse, mulerace/otc.
iiu tho menagerie the finest specimen
of elephant flesh ever seen in the city

tured on the Island of Singapore and
brought to America in 1892. He is!
only 28 years of age and is a kinely I

About one month ago my child,
which ia fifteen months old, had an
attack of diarrhoea accompanied by
vomiting. I gave it such remedies as
are usually given in such cases, but as
nothing gave relief, we sent for a physician and it was uniler his care for a
week. At tbis time the child had
been sick for about ten days and was
having about twenty-live operations of
bowels every twelve hours, and we
���were convinced that unless it soon
obtained relief it would not live.

use a complete cure was brought about

I'nlal Mountain.-   A llreat  Property.
This mining location has hitherto
been regarded in the public mind as a
sort ot uncertain project. Why we
dont know. Probably tbe absurd capitalisation of the Company with its
$2,500,000 for teu prospects claims,
has given it such a wild-cat air that
the public have regarded the Company's property as litle short of anything else, anal the affair has done the
district and the Company an immense
amonnt of harm. Having heard all
these stories, and lie prevalent opinion
concerning the property, we visited it
with some misgivings as to its value,
and were agreeably Surprised at what
wo saw.' The trail from tbe C. P. R
line to the mine is tbe best in the district- It was laid out by T. Mercier,
and is a credit to him, as a horse can
travel any part of it- with a load, and
free from any difficulty whatever, owing to the uniformity of tbe grade, and
the excellett manner in which the
trail has been opened but. The only
difficulty we found with it is that at.
the Donald end it has been badly
blocked with fallen timber and tho
Government do not seem to have
taken steps to clear it {or some time.
We reached the Company's cabin about
midnight, and early next morning
proceeded, in company with Mr. McAllister, of Calgary to look over t.he
ground. The Bald MonutainCompany's
property consists of 10 claims, located
along the length ol the
lead. Tho property thus embraces
something like.
At the western end of the property
this ledge shows in the face of a bluff
at an altitude of 6950 ftet above sea-
level. The strike of the ledge is north
east by sooth west, and it has a dip of
55 degrees to tho north. Tho ledge
has thus been described as a blanket
vein, but as it assumes a more vertical
position as it travels east our opinion
is that it is a liasuro vine tilted up at
the Bald Mountain end, which would
improve its position ns a mineral prospect. The lead is about eight feet
thick where in 6hows in the bluff. Two
tunnels have been driven ou tbo lead,
one at each end of the property. The
tunnel at the west end lain tib feel,
cutting right through tbo lead, and
there are also lateral drills, one on
each sido, and each 20 feat in length,
The direction of the tunnel is 50 east
of south, so that it cuts lhe lead nt
right angles. The tunnel cuts through
several quartz stringers in its course,
all well defined with clean talcose gouge.
These stringers run from two inohes to
two feet and a half in thickness, aud
appear io be all morn or less mineralised. An assay on one of these stringers
1<1 inches iu thickness and 40 feet in
from the mouth of the tunnel, gave an
assay of $14 in gold. This tunnel
runs through.
From the time it cuts the lead on tho
footwall till it reaches the hanging
Tnero are two classes of quartz in the
tunnel, one a rusty white which Is
certainly the best gold-bearing rock
while the other is a bluish grey
quartz carrying about 6 ox. of gold.
The rusty white quartz is very similar
to the quartz ot tiie Burns Basin, and
appears  to  carry  about    the same
amount of gold, namely $15 to $16 per
ton. We saw visible gold in several
samples that we selected for examination. The lead rises between talc,
schist and slate, and has a dip of 30
to the east, the lead thus cutting the
formation in dip but conforming to it
in strike. Numerous assays have been
obtained on the Bald Mountain ores
and appear to have given general satisfaction to the Directors. We have
not had access to these assays, but
probably the best test of which we are
aware was that a ton ot ore was despatched to the coast last year for a
mill test. The sample assayed $30, but
the mill tost only gave a return of
half that amount. The owners ef tht
mill appear to have been at a loss to
account for the difference in the results.
We noticed, however, that the.
much of it being in the iron pyrities,
with which the lead abounds in places.
In that case it would be impossible tu
save the gold with an ordinary mill
and a small cyanide plant would be
required in conjunction with a mill in
working this property before satisfactory results could be obtained in the
saving of tho gold. We cannot speak
in too high terms of the way in which
development work has been dono on
the Bald Mountain property. It is
well doue iu every way, and iseffecti>e
in showing up the mine. The tunnel
is 6ft. by 4ft. and is thereto��� at ail
able as a working tunnel for the operation nf the mine. The main ledge can
be seen out cropping over the whole
length of the Company's property and
wil/) tapped this season at the extreme
eastern and by a tunnel which was
driven 86 feet, and cut into the main
lead a distance of four feet. The time
at out* disposal did not permit of dur
visiting the eastern end of the property, but we are informed that the
property looks even better there than
at the western end. This season's
development work was done under
charge of J. Noble.   There are.
Traversing the property and their outcrops can be traced at numerous points
along its length. Wu have no hesita-
tation in expressing the opinion that
the Bald Mountain Company's property
is one of the must promising in East
Kootenay today, and that wi ether
'operated by the Coupany or by purchasing syndicates ,it will prove under
efficient management whut we claim for
