of Windermere. Having only this
year been located, but little work had
bran done on these propsrties at tho
time of my vl.lt, Aug. 27th, but such
slight work as was lu evidence gave
gieat promise.
A vein of solid galena, varying from
12 to 86 itches, had been exposed In a
series of open cuts for a distance of
some 150 feel j while surface scrapings
further along the tame lint would
seem to indicate that tht vein extended pretty well through two, at least,
of tht claims. Tht vein It somewhat
broken at the eurfaoo by tmall slips,

a trut fissure vein, witb ttrlkt S, 15'

the exception of a littlo surface scratch*

deposit of quarts ih a quartzoas-schist
hat been uncovered, carrying a few
patohes of oopper pyrites aod considerable blue oopper carbonate stain not in
very encouraging quantites.

Practically, no work ha. been done on
this property. At this particular point

Thit location, owned by the same
party, lies above the Morning Glory,
and the same quarts lodge is supposed
to run through both claims. On this

The claima are located noar the head of
Boulder Creek, on the right-hand side
going np, aud from a hair, extending
over the summit into Law's Creek.
Work has beon confined to the Pretty
Girl, whioh lies ou tht summit of the
divide. Tke altitude of the valley ol
Boulder Creek, below the claims, is
0,200 feet, while tho open cut on which
the work waa done on the Pretty Girl
ia at an elevation of 0,250 feet, more
than 8,000 feet abovo the valley,
Tble open out, 12 feet in length, has
been eunk 10 or 12 feet in a eolt shale,
dipping nearly vertical, and striking,
approximately, S. 25' W. Lying between the layera of the shales or slates
across the out wero hands of gray copper aod some carbonates of copper,
forming a highly mineralised zone
some 0 to 8 feet wide, irom which
large pieces ef eplendid ore had been
taken. The shales were very much
weathered and soft to the depth at-
tained hero, and are Habit to an alteration ol dtp at thty go down.

Upon the very meagre data obtained
whin the open out was down 8 feet,
tnd with no other positive surface

aal 160 tait vertically below tht out,
and approximately 250 feet horizontally from the aame. It wai expected
tbat at 90 feet in this would cut the

regarding tame.
There ia connected with tbt property
a good large log cabin, situated at an
elevation of 7,500 feet, just above the
timber line, from which point all mine
timbers have to be packed to the working!. Tht trail from tht valley up to

dblos onoup,
This group consists of four locations,
vis.: The Calamity Jane, De.os and
Trojan, on the right-band bank of
Boulder Creek,and across tbe creok the
Colossus, owned by Tom Jones, of
Golden, and bonded to tho Mines Development and Guarantee Truss Co.,
of Rossland. The claima are situated
on a steep bank and the work has been
done on tht Delos a few feet above
water level.
The oountry rock is composed of
slates, whioh appear to be bedded
neatly horizontally, while the cleavage planes ars usually vertical, .although in one or two places they stem
to be horizontal.
Running through the slates and
parallel with tht cleavage planes, is a
belt or zone some 150 feet wide, coin-
posed of quartz stringers running with
the belt, but very irregular as to direction. These stringers vary in size
from I inch to 24 inches, and at the
surface where a lot of stripping has
been done, are very much jumbled. It
ie probable that several of these
stringers will get together, forming a
larger ledge which may be followed to
a depth, but thie hus not as yet been
proven. Along this surface outcropping quite larfce masses of copper
pyrites aro found in the quartz, from
which several tons of ore corjd be
At the lower end of the stripped
aurface a tunnel haa been driven in 63
feet, of which the first 30 feet was a
cross-cut nud the remainder on a
quartz ledge about 20 inches wide, in
which occurs a very fair percentage of
copper pyrites. Tin's ore lias certainly
a very stiiliing npiiem-ance, being often
in grout masses of oolin pyrites. My
sample of the clean oro gave ue on
assay 32.48 p.c. copper, with only
traces of silver.
Whether the large surface showing
is connected with a large and moro
regular ledge remains for further
development to prove.

Mr. Wells has also made arrangements for improved accommodation at

The matter of school accommodation
at Field has also had Mr. Wells's attention, he having attended a meeting of
the poople there a week sgo to consider
tbis important matter. The C. P. R.
required the use of the portion of the
station building hitherto used ss a
school and it has become necessary for
tht Government to provide school
accommodation. Tbe people of Field
would like to have a building that
could also be used as a hall, thus
bringing in school revenue for the assistance of the trustees in managing
tbs school, and Mr. Wells ia endeavoring to arrange with the Government to
to give effect to the wishes of the people of Field.

Resignation of Hon. Jos. Martin.
Tho Government Caucus was held
on the 2(>th to consider the demand of
Premier Semlin for tho resignation of
Hon. Jos. Martin. There was almost
a full attendance of the supporters of
the Government. Several members
strongly expressed theopinion that the
Premier was not justified in calling on
Mr. Martin to resign. From I he statements made by Ministers themselves it
was evident the Cabinet had been getting along very well, aud there appeared to be no reason fjr the Premier's
action. The party were thut divided
but a majority were disposed to support tht Premier, toeing tht matter
had gone ao far, and that there was
danger of precipitating a general election ehould tht Premier'! aotion not bt
endorsed. To his credit be it said, Mr.
W. C. Weill, M.P.P., as representative
of North East Kootenay, stood to his
guns aud told tht meeting that he
would not be deterred from doing what
wat right by the Hon. Jos. Martin by
any threats of precipitating a general
election. He waa quite prepared to
face hie constituents at auy time-it
necessary. After a long and full discussion Mr. Martin said be did not
wish to be a means of causing trouble
in tbe party and he would resign vol*
untarily. Under these circumstances
the parly determined to stand together
as before and to hack up the Government iu oarrying out its policy.

Loudon, Jnly 28.���The Hague oorro-
poudent of tbe Times reports a long
eouversaton with Mr. Andrew D.
White, United States ambassador to
Berlin, aud head of the American delegation. The ambassador, after referring to tbe raruest desire of the American people for a comprehensive arbitration scheme, us proved iu the constant
petitions aud resolutions of large meetings held iu all parts of the United
States siuce tbe coufereuce has been
sittiug, said:
"I believe a vast mujority of our people wiil welcome our arbitration treaty
aud see in it a serviceable plan from
tbe outset, and u germ from which a
more complete system will ho evolved
by future conferences. Ah time progresses, wit!.out doubt, references to
the tribunal will become increasingly
natural aud normal, and thu-* we may
hope to have every advantage claimed
for obligatory arbitration without its
overwhelming disadvatuuges. But it
could hardly be expected that we
should be willing to accept tbe require*
ment to sweep away at once, here and
now, the policy of Mourocism.
"If any modification is ever made of
that policy, it must be made by the United Stattts nfter it has bud the fullest
opportunity to study the subject in all
its bearings. Such u change cannot
be made bere by implications, in a
treaty made distinctly for another purpose, und it is important tbat there
should lw uo doubt on this point."

Recognition of an Arbitration Court
Represents Vast Progress In the
Evolution of Human Society.
The Hague, July 27.���William T.
Stead made the following statement ia
reference to tbe work of the peace commission: "The conference achieved a
great unccess, mnch greater than the
delegates anticipated, aud tbe result
was achieved largely by tbe amour
propre of capable men from all parts of
the world, determined to accomplish
something worthy their assembling together. The result surprised all of
them and the magnitude of the gains is
imperfectly understood even by the
"The establishment of a permanent
court of arbitration on the American
principle of revision, pins the Frenoh
declaration of the duty of neutrals to
recommend disputing powers to refer
to an arbitration court rather than to
war, represents vast progress in the
evolntiou of human society. The recognition of tbe duty to represent to
disputants the desirability of resorting
to the arbitration court entails no obligation on tbe Americans inconsistent
with their traditional polioy. This is
made absolutely clear by the declaration signed by the American delegation, read in full at the conference today and entered on the records.
"The relations between the Americans and other delegates, notably the
British, German and Russian have
beeu extremely friendly. Tne British
and Americans acted throughout almost like a joint delegation. This was
due to no arrangement or direction, bnt
solely because both nations found common ground of defense, common interests, civilization nnd hnmanitv. Tbe
only point ou which the British dele
gates failed to support the Americans
was in the resolution forbidding tbe
capture of private property at sea. To
this, the British representatives were
not opposed bnt the British cabinet being divided, tbe delegates had no instructions regarding the matter und abstained from taking action.
"After tho arbitration convention is
signed it will probably be open to tbe
adhesion of all the other powers not
represented at the conference, on the
condition that no original signatory of
the convention object. This right to
blackball a power wishing to join tbe
convention was insisted upon by it iu
order to prevent the adhesion of the
pope, and by Britain on account of the
Transvaal. It is hoped that all the
South American states will come in.
Ic is the unanimous opinion of all the
delegates that tbe conference begins a
new epoch, and that the good seed now
sown will bear a rich harvest hereafter. ''        *^*___

Could only give temporary relief to Mr. Parson, who suffered for thirteen years with
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills made him well.
Mr. A. W. Parson, Martinville, Que., writes: "I was a sufferer from kidney disease
and bladder trouble for 13 years, and had a constant desire to urinate with its accompanying weakness. Medicine prescribed by a skilful physician only gave me temporary relief.
The trouble would recur at very awkward times. I was persuaded to try Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. I obtained relief after one dose, and before I had finished the first box
felt better than I had for many years."
The abundance of evidence that is published from time to time must convince the
most skeptical of the wonderful curative properties of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, the
world's greatest kidney cure.   A trial is the only better proof we have to offer.

Owlug to the Defalcation or Two or Its
Kmploye.a the Vllle Marl. Suspends.
Montreal, July 26.���The Ville Marie
bank is in financial difficulties, and
dosed its doors yesterday. The cause
of the suspension is reported by bank
officials to be the defalcation by Ao*
o'rantant F. Lemieux, and Teller J. J.
Herbert.. Both men ore said to have
left the olty, and their books are now
being examined to discover the. amount
of their shortage.
- The bank is comparatively a small
one aud the resnlts nre uot likely to be
of a serious mitu.-e. The president is
William Weir, who is well and favorably known in banking circles through
out tbe Dominion.
The amount of the defalcation is
not* said to be $68,060. Herbert is accused of taking tbe money while Lemieux is suspeoted of being an accomplice Requests will be sent out to tbe
lending United States cities to arrest
the men if they oan be located. It is
now stated on good authority that
banking circles have known of tbe
bank's troubles since tbe first of the
week, and tbat they have been proceeding with a view of protecting themselves, with the result that there was a
balance against the Bank-Ville Marie
in the clearing house today of abont
176,000. Iu view of the circumstances
the directors deuiaed *.*., to -.��. today and the bank suspended business.
It also seems that Lemieux and Herbert admitted on Saturday last that
there wos a defalcation, but it was not
known tken how mnch it was.
Some of tbe bank officials say the
shortage of Herbert and Lenleux
amounts to 160,000. Rumor plaoes it
as high as 180,000. The banking act
allows the bank ninety days in whioh
to ascertain the position of its affairs.
Conflicting rumors are afloat regarding
the liability of tbe bank apart from the
loss by theft. Detectives are hot foot
after the two missing men. It is said
tliat oue of tbom has not left the city.
Two Toronto Men Disappear.
Toronto, Jnly 26.���Last night at a
quarter after 10 o'olook. Eddie Day,
the steward of the Royal Canadian
Yacht olnb, and Harvey Pettit, of the
crew of the Vreda, took a canoe and
went out on the bay to noddle. They
went westward, and soon a couple of
fishermen at the breakwater, south of
the freight sheds, heard calls for help.
Soon after 11 o'clock tbe canoe was
found empty, upset and one paddle
missing. An uunvailiug search was
made. Today developed the" faot that
Pettit had told his friends that he and
a obuni were going to Ireland, and had
bought tiokeis for Alexandria Bay,
whence they were going to Montreal to
take ship. The price mentioned and
the oiroutuatnnces point to tbeir having
boarded tbe steamer Argyle, which left
for Alexandria last night. The reason
assigned for their leaving in such a
inannir is Day's scruples about giving
a month's notice. - Pettit has resigned
his job on the Vroda. Tbe authorities
are still dragging the bay.

An American Opinion on the Oncsllnii
of Arbitration.
Washington, Jnly 86.���Inasmuch as
the Canadian officials bave laid stress
upon the refusal of the United States
to accept fair arbitration of the pending questions, it may be proper to explain tbe reason for their refusnl as
pointed out by n high offioial. In the
first place, the United States government contended absolutely, heing certain of the soundness of its olnims in
the matter of the boundary. That
would seem to be n good reason for submitting the matter to arbitration on
the ground that a good cause had nothing to fear from fair arbitrators, but
tbis government holds that arbitrators'
treatment is all snjbeet to Ibe fatal
weakness of compromising. In our
case any compromise would nmonut to
the loss of our whole contention. It
was for this reason that Secretary Hay
rejected tbe Canadian proposal to arbitrate, attended by the contingent that
iu any case Pyramid Harbor should be
bestowed on Canada. Then, too it was
realized tbat an agreement to arbitrate
mny be extremely nnpouulnr in the
west, that the oclliiuls will be glad to
adjust the matter without resort to arbitration, if possible. This has oansed
a revival of the project to allow Canada free privileges at some specified
ports on the Lynn Cnnal, Dyes, Skagway or Pryamid Harbor, perhaps while
allowing sovereignity over them to remain in the United States, and this is
one of the propositions now engaging
our attention. It Is realized that tbis
plan would meet with  strong oppos1*

rarely adopted judging by the wilted

the lettuce.
First carefully separate the leaves from
the stalk, discarding discolored aud imperfect ones aud leaving untouched the
tiny henrts; lay them all In cool, clear
water for awhile, all morning If yon
choose; pick them over a couple of tim���
before serving; wash one by one and lay
In n wire basket if yon have one; If not,
a clean, soft towol will answer; gather
tbe ends and sides loosely In your hand
and lightly shake the lettuce; then put
the leaves in a coluiuler, which you set

Wbts the Qwbmi Were Not Allow-*
ed to Smoke om the Street*.
There are many old time Germans who
remember how strictly the low against
public smoking used to be enforced. That
the law is dead is one of the fruits of the
revolution of 1848. The Berliners wero
the first Germans to smoke In public.
Courage to do bo came to them during
tbe memorable days when they dictated
laws to their king, Frederick William IV,
the present kaiser's granduncle. As that
monarch, while standing on the balcony
of the Berlin castle, was commanded by
the revolutionists to uncover before their
dead "the mob," says a contemporary
chronicler, "heaped the additional indignity upon him of puffing huge pipes in
hi* presence."
The citlsens stuck to their pipes and
cigars during the following mouths, when
the police and military dared not interfere with tbem ou trifling provocation.
Afterward, wben the tide bad turned, au
attempt was made to aguiu enforce the
law, but the people got so wrought np
over the matter that the police dropped
tbe persecutions. In March, 1840, the
old law was repeated.
As it happened liberty to smoke everywhere except in church and in the theater was one of tbe few results of the revolution that have nerer been Interfered
with by subsequent government ucts.
Before the revolution disobedience to
tbe anttsmoktng law was punishable by
a fine ot 1 thaler. If a German passed
a sentry box or a royal palace pipe In
mouth, be was mulcted B tinders. Tho
smoking of cigars lu public was deemed
particularly offensive, and judges frequently Imposed an extra thaler on the
person guilty of smoking such an article.
Iu Germany the cigar came to be considered "the correct thing" only after the
introduction of matches. It was easier
to light a cigar than a pipe by the uew-
funglcd agency; hence the cigar Increased lu popularity and became gradually
recognized as the superior of tbo pipe iu
a "social way."
But "liberty to smoke" is not yet universal iu Germany or elsewhere. In
Berlin, Munich and other capitals,1 including Vienna, army officers and soldiers
are forbidden to smoke In the principul
streets through which members of the
royal family are liable to drive. If In
other streets they see a royal curriuce
approaching, tbey must throw away their
Early Impresaloaa.
Memory plays queer antics at times. As
our Ideas of things develop ami mako progress the relation to ourselves, as wo wero
of a remembered placo or Incident, keeps
pace with the advance. When we wero In
youth, we thought the house In which we
lived In those days a veritable mansion
and the yard was as large and commodious as a park now seems to us. Our memory keeps tbem thus, although wo have
long outgrown our little selves.
But when we again visit the haunts of
the early years we find that the mansion
hns diminished to a cottage and the yard
seems miserably small. Wo havo outgrown them. There seems to bo n self adjusting lens that, as we fare farther from
tho scenes and surroundings wo once
Knew won, Keeps magnifying ilium so
that they are always tho samo to us.
And it must be so of incidents and
people as welL Memory Is kind and
throws a mantle of softening mist over
whatever comes Into her realm. And
when ws go baok and find the old neighborhood or see again our long remembered
friends we must not put all tho blame of
changing upon thorn. It Is wa who hnvo
changed, perhaps far more than have
they, only we do not stop to realize the
fact.��� Exchange.

The  Auctioneer Waa  Qnlck Wltte*
and Finally Made a Sale.
An auctioneer on Kast Washington
street���one of those redoubtable Individuals commonly termed "slick"���was
the cause of a farcical scene recently
that would havo doue credit to a burlesque show. lie had been talking Industriously for a long time to a crowd of
Interested but enthusiastic listeners.
The affable auctioneer conscientiously
went through his repertory from beginning to end, but somehow the crowd did
oot "warm up" to bim���to quote his owu
language. Finally, with a dark look that
bordered on despair, he grabbed up a
well known pasteboard hatbox containing aoout 50 spools of silk thread of different colors. With the grace of a conjurer be extracted five ot tbe spools, and,
arraying them in a tempting semicircle
on the counter, announced that tbey wer��
"to go at any price."
But the audience, while admitting with
nods of approval lhat they were good
spools of thread, displayed no marked
Inclination to become excited over them.
Not a bid was offered.
"I'll sell 'em for IU cents," suggested
the auctioneer timidly. It was plain
from the toue of his voice that he was
losing faith In himself and in all the
world. There were uo takers. Tbe
man of the red gag added tbree more
���pools to the semicircle. "All for 10
cents," he declared. But thread stock
was far below par. Tbe auctioneer
caught up all the spools from the counter and flung tbem Into the box with an
Impressive gesture. The light of Inspiration flashed from his eyes.
"Tho whole blamed box for 10 cents!"
he cried.
"I'll take it," was the prompt response,
and a little man in a washed out overcoat aud wearer of red chin whiskers
stepped out from tbe crowd with a dirty
10 cent piece in his upraised hand. The
auctioneer clutched the money feverishly, and, turning the box upside down st
that all the spools dropped into a basket
on the counter, he handed the worthless
piece of ancient pasteboard to the anxious customer, A roar of hilarious
laughter rose from the crowd that was
heard throughout that neighborhood.
"I don't want your blamed old box!"
walled tbe unfortunate purchaser.
"You said you'd take It," replied the
auctioneer. "I'll leave it to tbe crowd-
did n't he?"
"Yes I" came in a strong chorus from
the delighted audience.
"I bought the spools!"
"No, you didn't! You bought the box!
I'll leave it to the crowd���didn't he?"
"Yes!" came the answer again, stronger than ever. The red whUkered man
stalked Indignantly from tho place with
the box tinder his arm.
