What might have proved to have

with passengers going east. At f>: 15,
when travelling at a slow rate, the engineer discovered a rock slide on the
track, but not iu time to bring the
train to a halt. He instantly applied
the air brakes and revoiKcd the working gear, whistled an alarm, and then

Air. William Dwycr, one of thp members   of  Mr. J.   A. Coryell's   survey
party, which  has  been  surveying in
vicinity of Kettle river during the past
summer, for the Provincial   Government, has returned to Victoria, bringing   some   interesting   mining  news.
Of  the  niiiu-s  about   Fall-view  Air.
Dwyer   says:      '-The   Morning Star
mineral claim of Camp Fall-view, owned  by Messrs,   Alangot, MacEachran
and Lefevre, is atrritctiug considerable
attention in the interior.     'Ibis claim
has   been   developed   quietly   by   the
owners   during   the  past four years,
and about a  month ago, during a temporary   suspension   of   work  on   the
Stratheyre Mining Company's properties, Alessrs.   Alangot   & MacEachran
conceived the idea of leasing the company's mill  and  running through the
1U0 and odd tons of rock they had in
their dump.     The result  has been so
successful that the owners have put a
force of men to  work  getting out ore
as fust as the mill can dispose of it,
the returns to date showing from S50
per ton into the thousands.     The oro
extracted during the past month shows
free gold in quantity, plainly visible
throughout the quart'',,and as they have
fully  10,1)00 tons of ore now in sight
appearance point to the fact that the
Osoyoos country  will  be a large producer of ore in a short time.
"The development work on the
Brown Bear and Wild West claims
only proves the rock richer iu free gold
us depth is obtained, and there is uo
longer any doubt but that Fuirvicu' is
destined to be one of the greatest gold
camps of the interior. The natural
townsite for this camp is at the Government bridge, ou tlie Hayues estate,
where ample water power can be obtained for reduction works, eic, and
it is rumored that this will soon bo
opened for sale,
"On Boundary creek, in the Providence claim, ore is being packed out to
Colville smelter, some seventy-live
miles, at a good profit, and this and a
number of other rich strikes along the
Kettle river point to the location of a
smelter in that district ere long.
"In Camp AIcKiuney the expected
construction of the Kettle river wagon
road has caused renewed confidence,
and a number of abandoned claims
have been re-located and development
work renewed.
'���Although the placer excitement at
Ah 3he oteek has subsided, two others '
were budding into bloom as I left Kettle river, with prospects of twenty
cents to ihe pan. The construction of
a railway through Kettle river is looked forward to by the settlers in the
near future, and such au event will
certainly mean the rapid development
one of the richest sections of the Province."���Colonist.

Among the passengers on Sunday's
Atlantic express wus Air. Acton Burrows, returning iu nxcnllwif, hi-alt.li and
splrns from a mouth's trip to the Pacific coast.
"Yes," s.iid he when queried by a
Free Press reporter, "I have been
greatly benefitted by the change and
hive enjoyed the trip immensely. Until a couple of days iu the middle of
last week the went her was perfect and
the great beauty of the scenery was
greatly enhanced by tho radiant
autumnal tints of the maple,, and other
deciduous trees."
"How is business at the coast?"
asked the reporter.
"Personally I am more than satis-
11 il with tho result of my visil, but of
course the general depression has affected business i': British Columbia as
well as elsewhere iu Canada, hut not
to anything like the same extent as iu
the Puget Sound district south of the
boundary line. Coming iu contact
with a number of people who have
1 itely visited Western Washington,
Oregon and California, as well.ns meeting wilh several residents of Puget
Sound points I am satisfied that while
the greatest depression and stagnation
exists tliere, British Columbia is bold-
i ig its own well and is ou the eve of a
development of i's great potential
wealth that will astonish tlie world
and make th" province the richest iu
"What about the cities?"
*' Well, I visited Victoria first, and
was more than ever struck with the
unique beauty of its position. To
know Victoria is to love it. It is
charmingly situated, and is remarkable
for its handsome residences, beautiful
gardens and the unbounded hospitality
of the people. The view from the top
of Mount Tolmie is one never to he forgotten. Victoria will nlwavs hold its
pre-eminence as a residential city und
us a favorite halting place for tourists.
Vancouver has made very marked
progress since a year ago. The Bunk
of Montreal und the Bunk of British
North America have shown their faith
in the city's future by erecting buildings that would de credit to Montreal
or Toronto, The handsome post office
is just ready for occupation ; the city
has erontul a number of solid brick
school buildings; a large number of
houses have been built ; several of the
streets have been asphalted; the Hudson's Bay Co. aro erecting huge warehouses and on every hind are to he
seen proofs of solid prosperity and progress. There is a great deal of misapprehension iu the east in regard to
the prices of real estate in Vancouver,
many appearing lo think they ure
away out of sight. but after most careful investigation I am satisfied such is
not the ease, The best business property in the city can he bought at $5C0
a front foil, and when tho present
population and trade, and the city's
undoubted future are considered, it
will be se.eil that t'l'a. price is decidedly
j moderate and offers excellent oppurtun-
, Uks ior pruiiuible investment. The
I same is trje of the great bull: of

the Nakusp and Slocan a line of some
thirty or forty miles from the upper
head of Arrow lake into the heart of
the Slocan mining district. This line
will be ready to bring out ore in the
spring. Two other lines are almost
sum to gojui next year. One leaving
Spence's Bridge, on the Fraser, will
run some miles into the valley of the
Nicola, where there are valuable coul
deposits, the workings of which will
lie of immense importance to the Mainland, The other, starting from the
C.P.R. at Ashuroft, Savona or Kamloops will penetrate the Cariboo country. During the gold excitement of

amount of farming hind."
'��� I suppose the C.P.R. are still improving their line?"
���'Yes, the work accomplished dining the past twelve months is remarkable. Curvature and gradients have
been reduced, wooden structures have,
where practical, given way to solid

aro now 111 men employed in the mine,
and a fine body of ore is exposed. It
is a dry silver proposition, very high

Ho was not ilio.i prepared to statu
whether or not work will be resinned

tu thu accessibility uf the Ainsworth
mints and tlie superior transportation
facilities, Mr. Leiidruin thinks they
aro destined to be recognized as exceedingly valuable proper-ies. "The situation at Kaslo," he said, " is vory encouraging. All the houses on Front

out large shipments." Mr. Leudruiu
slates that a great deal of work has
been duuu at Ainsworth and through-

Notwithstanding tho low prices of silver and lead, the number of mining

" For a long time past the existence
of mineral bearing ledges has been
known," he said last evening, " but it
is only within the last few years that
prospectors, capitalists and others have
been attracted, owing to the high
grade of the ore, both in galena mid
silver. At present the Slocan district
is ahead, both in development and shipments of ore, and has over Li promising mines, among which may be
mentioned the Slocan Scar, Washington, Oshkosh, and otliers that might
be named,
"In the Aiusworth district one or
two mines are shipping. Tliere are
several gooil prospects iu the Lardeau
district, but the development is not so
far advanced, although work and prospecting are going on.
"Iu a large milling area like British

"Nelson, which is a pretty town
and a growing one too, has within 7

"The value of the picked und dressed ore from the Slocan camps runs
from about 100 ounces and as high as

"Railway communication, roads

An article by R. L. Packard in the
American Antiquarian says that careful investigation seems to show that
at the time of the discovery of America
copper was used by the North American Indians only as a precious inetal
and for ornamental imposes, und had
not reached the stage of industrial us,
as it had among the Aztecs in Mexico,
Tliere is, moreover, noevidencelo show
that the northern Indians had acknowledge of ore working or smelting,
and it is almost certain that all the
copper they possessed was found in the
metallic or native state. There is nothing to show that they were aware
of tho existence of copper ore as a
source of metal. No remains of smelting places, or slag, or other indications
of metallurgical operations have yet
Leon found. ' The quantity of copper
which the Indians possessed at tlie
time of the discovery, although tlie
metal wus diffused over a very wide
territory, was very small as compared
with stone. This is shown by the
relatively small proportion of copper
implements in the principal collections
as at the Smithsonian Institution ami
others. The larger numbers are found
in Wisconsin, and this is accounted
for by the fact that Wisconsin is directly south of Keweenaw district in
Michigan, where the largest beds of
native copper occur. Iu these beds the
copper shows us such in tho ,-ock, and
thu ancient miners had only to follow
down a promising oi.torop showing
metal for a few feet, und hummer away
the rock from the oop|ier to secure the
latter. When they camo upon a largo
mass they were compelled to abandon
it after hammering off projecting pieces
because they had no tools for cutting
it tip arid removing it. Several instances of this sort have been found.

men, all mounted on horses, and part
of them masked, from the west end of
Moore county, went to Ned Waggoner's
house and took out Waggoner, his son
William, his son-in-h.w, Sam Motlow,

were then hanged to a tree on the
Brookville turnpike. Ned Waggoner's

taken out, were Henry Motlow and
Jeff Wise, a boy, ll! years old. They
