Ope of the finest display of ores yet
made in the city  is on exhibition in
Messrs, Meiyat   A   Palmer's   window.
There are ft g*eat many specimens on
view,   and  a  particularly large block
weighing several hundred pounds, assays up into the hundreds of dollars.
The ore is from the claim now called
the Royal Victoria, but formerly better
known as the Golden Eagle,  located on
the Nqrtb Fork of the Kettle River, ���&��
joining Volcanic Mountain, and in the
centre of a group  of producing properties.   It is about  nine miles from the
Granby  smelter,   with a good wagon
road to the mine,
Last October the property was taken
up by L. 8, Monlton-Barrett and P-. P.
Sharpe, both of Greenwood. At that
time it was a prospect with a depth of
39 feet, at which point it showed values I ����

new proprietors having decided on developing it without loss pf time supk to
50 feet where a horse was struck, They
went through and picked up the lead
again and then sunk to 95 feet. Here a
a crosscut of 75 feet was made, striking
the yejh 8 feet in. A winze was sun):
on the vein 12 feet, and a crosscut was
made at the bottom showing & feet of
ore. The crosscut hero was continued,
and came into another body of ore 15
feet wide, four feet of which gave various yaluos, assaying all the way

on this ore tlie calcspar is turning into i
solid quart;?.
A plat has been made, and a windlass J
erected, a trolley car being used to con-
vey the.ore to the shaft. About 50 feet i
on either side of the present shaft are
two smaller veins outcropping, one of
which wont ?30 in gold on the surface,
aud the other $10, These two veins it
is thought will go together in tlie
main ore body below.
Incorporated with this claim are the
Junctiou City and Laskey fractions, giving a total area of 104 acres. A Ross-
laud firm is handling the property as ii
stock proposition, the greater part of
the stock being taken up iu the East.
Owing to the fact that the name Golden
Eacle had already been appropriated,
an existing charter miner me mtnie of
Royal Victoria was secured, and the
company capitalized thereunder. The
capital is placed at f 1,000,000, in 1,000,-
000 shares of a par value' of $1,00 each,
It is understood that 300,000 shares of
treasury stock will be placed on the
market at 15c,, but that none of it will
be obtainable locally or in small blocks.
Mr, Robbing, of the Brooklyn and
Steniwinder, has reported favorably,
and already several offers for shares
have been received. The ore is between
granite walbs, and it is described as a
true unsure vein. Mr. Robbing
concluding Iuh report says that "the
property as a whole is well worthy of
exploration. It is already more than a
prospect, inasmuch as remarkable ore is
exposed, which only requires a market.
In fact, it may be called in its present
condition a good 'little mine.' Regurd-
garding it, however, as a prospect merely, it is an excellent one, showing evidence of value which compares favorably with the best in the Boundary
Creek section."
The prospectus states that "the Canadian Facihc Railway has expressed a
willingness to construct a spur line to
the mine on the guarantee of fifty tons
of ore for daily shipment. It is the intention of tb;3 'Golden Eagle' company
to onter into negotiations with this end
in, view as soon as the smelter, which is
being constructed at a point seven miles
down the river from the mine, is completed. The mine is developed to a
depth of 95 feet, with drifts, crosscuts
and winzes. Work is being pushed on
the property with the intention of developing it to an extent that will admit
of tlie shipment of 100 or more tons of
ore daily by the time the railway between the mine and ihe smelter is ready
for operation."
Telegraph Into Greenwood.
The first tickur to be heard iu Greenwood was on the morning of the Kth,
when it started up in the oflieo of the
Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co. The
company luyj strung the wires over the
same poles with the telephone, and now
all long distance messages are sent by
telegraph at the same rates as formerly.
The telegraph is simply a matter of convenience for the company itself in transmitting messages to Rossland, with
which alone connection is had in this
way. It requires the extra services of
an operator on each end, and therefore
no saving in expense is effected. Arrangements have been made whereby
the C. P. R. Telegraph Co. will string
its wires over the telephone poles, and
wo may- expect to be connected with
that system at an early date. The Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co. is widen*
. ing the right of way from the Winnipeg
j mine down to Greenwood, and expects
this season to extend its system as far
west as -Midway.
Spokane, has been in tile cjty in the interests of his paper, ami als6 as organizer for the Western Labor Union, He
bus met with gratifying success, s,o he
reports, in the camps around Greenwood.. ��� On Tuesday he called at tlie
Miniik office, and in the course of an Interview gave some interesting information regarding labor matters. He says
that in a very short time a Miners'
Vnion will be organized here, and Jas,
Wilkos, general organizer, will come in
to complete arrangements,
Asked about the Coeur d'Aleue troubles, be said the men will win out in
the end. It may take them a year, but
there can be no doubt about the result.
The Western Federation of Miners has
about half a million dollars at its back,
and in addition to that, which represent* its own funds,  it bus the active
Support   Ol   Cvory Labor Unirm in A nier.
Lea, and contributions are coming in
from all quarters. As a matter or fact,
the mine owners cannot get sufficient
skilled miners to operate the mines
without holding out such inducements
to them that it would be cheaper to accede to the Union's demands. Good
miners are getting from $3,00 to $3.50
per day, and are in demand at that price,
so that it is very difficult to fill tlieir
places.
Martial law and officials may triumph
for the time being, but the men will all
walk back again, Mr. Walker cited the
Cripple Creek excitement and told bow-
in a game of wits the miners won, and
it would be so on this case. There are
now between 1,300 and 1,400 men out
in Idaho, and the owners Iind great difficulty iu operating the mines. The
Standard Co. started in with 350 men,
paying their passage money and giving
them something in their pocket ati well.
Only 110 arrived at the mines, aud only
48 of that number went to work. The
authorities have carried things to such
an extreme that sympathy ie rapidly
turning in the direction of the miners.
It was absolute tyranny. For instance,
all classes of tradesmen'gulug into the
district, carpenters or what not, who
had nothing whatever to do with the
miners' union were obliged to foreswear
their allegiance to unions, ami it has
now settled down to a fight for labor
union principles���the right ol unions to
exist. With such an issue, Mr. Walker
thought there could be absolutely no
doubt about the outcome,
plea' underlying organized
become too universally recognized
to be jeopardized by officialism in the
state of Idaho.
Preliminary Steps Taken for the Formation on Friday Evening.
There was a representative meeting of
business men on Friday eyening in Ren-
dell's ball for the purpose of taking the
necessary steps preliminary to the formation of a Board of Trade. The work
of securing the number of signature* required by law had already beep completed, and all that remained to be done,
prior to the forwarding of the documents
to the Secretary of State, waB the appointment of a Secretary in accordance
with the statute,
Mr, Galloway baying been moved to
tlia chair, it wns moved by f, J, Finnti-
cane, and seconded by, Duncan Puiss,
that R, E. Gosnell be. Appointed Setre-
tary, The motion was carried, ami the
members present proceeded in an jnforf |".
mul way to discuss several matters of
importance, ,
One of these was the collection of an
exhibit of minerals from the Boundary
Creek District for the Paris Exposition.
Mr. Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist,
was present, and after  some discussion
an arrangement was arrived at whereby
the Greonwood Board of Trade is to take
charge of the specimens from the Summit, including all the miuing camps in
the vicinity of Greenwood,( as far west
as Camp McKinney,' For this purpose
a committee, consisting of Messrs. C. S.
Galloway, W, T, Smith, T, McDonald,
and the Secretary was appointed,    A
number of suggestions were   made in
this connection,   which  will have the
careful consideration of the committee.
Mr- Finnucane referred to a letter he
had received from the President of the
Nelson Board of Trade with reference to
the subjects proposed to be discussed at
the Congress of Boards of Trade to be
held   in   Kossland in August.    There
seemed, he said, to be a desire- to open
up tho question of the instructions to
delegates, on subjects to be discussed
there.   He did not think it wise to send
men to that confsrencu with their l^nds
tied,   Mr. GHUoway0promi8c.il to communicate with   the   President of the
Nelson Board by telephone,
Mr. Wood suggested that it would be
a good liloa to prepare a folder to be
printed and distributed at the Paris Exposition, giving precise, and concise information about the mines of the Boundary district. It was agreed that, the
suggestion was worthy of consideration,
but that there was plenty of time later
on to take it up. The meeting then adjourned.
The certificate of incorporation, and
all necessary papers in connection, were
forwarded to the Secretary of State on
Monday, and it will only be a matter of
two or three weeks at the outside before
the Board is legally and fully constituted.
Tho committee in whoso hands the
matter of exhibits was left met on Monday afternoon, and decided on a plan of
actum. It was thought injudicious to
exhibit any ores except from demonstrated mines in which the values were
permanent. To the export, who is most
particularly interested in ores, surface
showings would be valueless, and in the
camps about Greenwood there was sufficient ore of the right kind to make a
large collection. The following camps
and claims will be represented if possible:

COUNTY   COURT.
Judge Spinks presided at County

were 23 cases on the docket, all of
which were disposed of. Practically,
only the three following cases came to a
hearing:

A Lumber Trust.
Adolph Fischer, tho Greenwood sawmill proprietor, has returned from Nelson where twenty mill men from the
Kootenays and Boundary were present
to consider the formation of a sawmill
trust. From Mr. Fischer ii was ascertained that the proposal is to take over
all the mills iu this district, incorporating them in a joint stock company, and
placing them under one management.
The present owners will he allotted
stock in proportion to the value of their
interests. The object is to regulate
prices, which in some localities will
be increased and in others lowered. AH
details are not yet completed, but the
combination is regarded as practically
completed.

It is necessary that all the ores for
exhibition purposes should be in Greenwood within thirty days. Full particulars of each specimen should accompany

Nervy Cinnamon that Raided a Pros,
pector's ���Cabin.
A first class bear story is always wel-
come, especially if it be well vouched
for.   In rhis case it is genuine, beyg
told by J. 11. James, a well-known prospector,   James and  his  partner, A, G,
Bardo, have a cabin on the Dewdnt'y
trail up in Wellington camp between
the two Boundary mountains.   On Friday the 14th hist,, they had gone out
prospecting there  being a good  deal  of
country that had not yet been staked
there,   ami  left  their   stock    of meat
cached near by with a big stone laid on
top of it,   When they returned in tho
evening  they  found tho   stone rolled
away, that a side of bacon bad been abstracted and all oaten but the rind, that
a whole piece of bam bud gone, and finally that there were teeth  marks in another piece of bacon  otherwise undisturbed.   It was evident that'a bear had
been there.   The fullowing^Jay on leaving the cabin, they took the bacon and
hung it  iqi in  a  tree,  and  left  feeling
quite safe;   When  they Again  returned
the bacon was still up a  tree, but  not
any more so than  were  themselves, for
the reason that the bear on  his second
visit had quietly  pulled  the mosquito
netting down off the door, put his paw-
in and carried away a 4'i,  lbs sack of
coffee.   The  next day it was decided to
get a gun, and stay around and interview the. marauder.     While  they were
off looking for firearms, however, Bruin
came back again, ate the rind of bacon
left on a previous occasion, and being
disappointed  at    not  obtaining   more
provender   reached    in    a    paw    and
"swiped" a 31b.  sack   of salt.    When
James and his partner returned with
Brearms and in a sanguinary nmod they
saw what had been  done and  followed
up.    About 100 yards away they found
the salt on a log, in the sack ; some of
the salt had trickled out along the  way
and they were able to follow  the  trail.
Going a little farther oh they saw traces
of coffee, which  had also been strewn
along,   the sack  having  been  torn  en
route,   {t too, was discovered.   Further
on still, they saw where the animal had
lain down.   Not  being  able to trace it
farther they returned to the cabin  determined to keep  watch   the next day
fur hini.    On the!iiiiirrow they remained
in and kept vigil until  midnight, when
sleep overcame thorn,   In the morning
j James found much  to bis astonishment
(that   towards   morning   some time the
bear hod visited the cabin, and pulling
j away the mosquito netting had gently
j inserted a paw and taken away a piece
j of bacon which lay only a few inches
i from his head while asleep. James said
I he never heard of such absolute "nerve"
[on the part of a bear;   Both of them
leepers, and very easily

The following day they determined lu

the door just in time to see a young cinnamon disappearing over a precipice.

GREENWOOD BOARD   OF  T.RADE.
Tho preliminary steps in connection
���villi the formation of a Board of Trade in
Greenwood have been taken, and in two
weeks more at the outside, that body
will be legally organized and in full
working order. Boards of Trade are not
psually a success iij towns of the size of
Greenwood, and as a rule their establishment hSs beep discouraged, because iu Eastern Canada the commercial and industrial interests in such places
fire usually so small as to be insufficient
to maintain interest, or justify the existence of such a body at all. The same
js true of the Boundary Creek district.
J'.ut conditions in this country are so de-
decidedly different to those in the east,
that iio parallel whatsoever can be instituted. . Surrounding Nelson and
Rossland, and in the Slocan districts.
millions qf money have been invested.
huch investments are affected by a va-
fioty of events and influences, and it
peems of the utmost jmpoytance that the
influence of what may be regarded as
t he organized business element of the
various districts should be brought to
bear on the Government and on the
Legislature,
There is a great deal for the Greenj
wood Board of Trade to do, and if it earnestly* enters on its mission, and dil
gently carries op the work, it will have
a lasting and beneficial effect on the
future of the city. The city is in a formative stage, and now is the time to
act. Influences set at work in the plastic stage of our life will have incalculable effect, as compared with what it
will be possible to do later on with an
expenditure of the same amount of energy. The effort, however, must not be
desultory or half-hearted. It should be
systematic and vigorous. Nearly all
communities take spasmodic fits of reform, but as a rule they are effervescent.
As soon as the first fever of excitement
lias subsided there is a return to a condition of quietude and flatness. The
tnlHsion of a Board of Trade is one of
everlasting vigilance. It should let no
opportunity slip. There is nothing in
the scope of municipal, provincial or
Dominion politics that does not come
within its sphere of influence, It should
take no action hastily or without the
most deliberate consideration. Some
Hoards of Trade are too active. They
(ire absolutely fussy, giving advice on
ull subjects, in and out of season. They
act on every public impulse, and actually wear out their influence by their constant nagging at public, bodies. Victoria
fora time almost enjoyed such a reputation until maturer counsels prnyailed,
It is the busiuiks of a Board of Trade to
develop a comprehensive policy on pub-
lie matter of local interest, and strive
to mould public opinion accordingly.
To have Influence���and it is essentially
an influencing body���it should bo judicious as well as active: but it should be
both.
As will be seen olsewbei-e, the members have already instituted a plan of
compaign, or rather have, begun work.
Their first act is to prepare an exhibit
of Boundary minerals for the Paris Exposition. There are the questions of increased appropriations, of improved facilities in the way of doing public business in this district, of rectification of
our political boundaries, of advertising
judiciously and effectively the resources
of the district, of extending the trade of
Greenwood correspondingly with the
development of the mining camps to
the north and west of us, and of incidentally improving our means of communication with the outside world, to
deal with; and many others that will
crop up from time to time, It is just a
question of how willing the members
are to work as to what success the Board
will achieve.
wis a Mtowmmmffmm
be most sj��nifip����t fact to 4 he w.ASjle
procedure being the secession of the
Province newspaper from his cause.
The Province was political sponsor (pj
the Hon. J.oseph, and at onetime placed
him Qnly a little lower than the gods,
Out of some thirty or forty newspapers
in B. ,C. pot a eingje ope so far as we
know is his friend iu.the present juncture. Candidly speaking, he seems to
have lost caste completely. His hope
undoubtedly is in the support of the labor unions, which on account of the
eight-hour law and sundry expressions
of his on the labor question are decidedly on his side. Is is useless to deny
that such a support is a great element
of strength ; but it is also questionable
whether, if such men as Ralph Smith,
Nanaimo, Hon. Thos. Forater, and R.
Macpherson of Vancouver, take the
other side, the labor vote will stay
with Martin ; or whether in any event
the labor vote alone would carry him
in. At the present time both Liberals
and Conservatives are opposed to the
AttornejvGeueral, and both are equally
anxious to. get rid of him. Theiefore, it
would be very hard fur hint to effect any
strong combination against Sen)lin and
Cotton, who in this light have politically the syrnpathy of both parties, not
because they are lovpd by either party,
bni because Martin is co much the
more hated; It is not at al) ���prpbaVJle
that Martin will get the support of the
labor representatives referred to.
Though pot fanatics in any sense, they
are at least purists in the reasonable
sense of tlje term. They will
noj, openly support a man as leader,
who, even in public, disregards the
ordinary proprieties of life.
No ppbjic man can afford to
flaunt his irregularities in the face ol
everybody in broad daylight. This has
only been hinted at in the public press,
but iq reality it is the cause of the revolt tljawst hint in certain quarters,
and there is no use disguising the facts.
If the Hon, Joseph .Martin had held
aloof from certain iinsavoryassociajjqus,
he would to-day be a much stronger
man, politically, than his rival, Cotton.
He has the advantage of the Finance
Minister in many respects���in the directness of his methods, in strength of
character, and political courage, lie
has simply thrown away his opportunities by permitting himself to be swayed
by passion, and a turbulent disposition.
To gain respect for our own views, we
must respect the views of ot|icrs, or at
least accord them respectful consideration, The Attorney-General has estranged bis best friends by pursuing a
deliberate policy of don't-care-a-danin-

The position of tho remaining members of the Government in his retirement, is a very dilliciilt one. It will be
bard to effect a coalition satisfactory to
all parties, and it is not strong enough
to go it alone. Cotton is the only man
of ability left in, and for reasons that
need not be explained, he does not inspire that confidence as to his honesty
which is necessary to success, There is
only one of two things to do���to precipitate a light on straight party lines or affect a coalition of parties. Both are attended with great political risks. There
seems to be absolutely no good grounds
for the confidence which Mr. Cotton's
newspaper, the News-Advertiser, expresses regarding the outlook. It is 110
doubt based on that self assurance
which has carried that gentleman
through many a trying ordeal; but it
may fail this time.

THE   PACIFIC   CABLE.
Telegraphic advices are to the effect
that the Pacific cable has at last been
assured and that, too, without Ihe necessity of drawing on this Province for
one million dollars. Australia assumes
eight-eighteenths of the estimated cost,
$H,QOO,000, and Canada and Great Britain five-eighteenths each,
When the Government of this Province undertook to contribute ona-nintb
on the responsibility of the Executive it
undertook something which every sen
sible man in the country condemned as
a piece of unheard of kite-Hying; and
which very few believed to be serious.
The fact that the three countries interested, Australia, Canada, as a whole,
and Great Britain, went on and settled
without reference to the offer of Britisli
Columbia indicates that no attention
was paid, to the latter. Laurier is too
shrewd a politician to take into consideration what was so palpably a "bluff."
It would bave been undignified on the
part of Canada and Great Britain to
bave accepted any such offer, and it was
absurd to have made it. Tlie people of
the Province will be pleased to know
that an amicable arrangement has been
arrived at, whereby a Pacific cable becomes a possibility of the near future.
They will be still more pleased to know
that they are relieved from the responsibility of repudiating what was assumed
in their name without rhyme or reason.
Had the offer been accepted seriously
the Province would have been placed in
a most humiliating and unjustifiable
position by the folly of the government.

The Premier's Status in the Cabinet.
A good deal has been written about
the rights and powers of, the Premier in
connection with the present Cabinet
crisis; and there is, apparently, much
misconception even in the minds of
Well-informed persons on the subject.
Mr, David B. Bogle, in the Rossland
Miner, has so clearly defined the constitutional status o�� the Premier that
his letter is reproduced here;
Editor Miner: An extraordinary
amount of erudition has been called
forth in your columns with regard to
the origin and functions of Cabinets and
Prime Ministers and such like. Like
most of the features of that remarkable
abstraction, the British constitution,
the matter is at once very complex and
very simple. It is very complex if an
attempt is made to lay down mathematical rules where they cannot be applied,
and very simple if the whole question
be looked on as a natural growth and development.
A minister of the Crown, as such, has
a defined legal status; he receives his
portfolio from the Crown, and the relation can only be dissolved in one of two
ways, either by the Crown demanding
his   resignation or by his offering it.
But as a member of tho Cabinet ho has
no defined legal status at all.   Tlie Cabinet is a  living  organism,   subject to
growth and   decay, and sometimes to
surgupl operations.   A minister of
Crown has, as a member of the Cab
no constitutional right nor duties.
mereJ^^responBibilities.    P��,-Jjlr-ifi
Jtme
I'iuet,
except as a sort of advisory committee.
But when the preponderance of power
left the Crown and became vested in the
representatives of the people, then the
idea of a Cabinet took quite a different
shape, retaining many of the old forms
under which advisory committees of
Ministers had existed before. The
most important change has taken place
in the positions and functions of the
Premier. Ministers of the Crown are
now responsible for their actions to Parliament.
A separate and divided responsibility
is not for a moment to be thought of.
It would be anarchy realized. It ia the
Premier who unifies the Ministers and
assumes their collective responsibility
to parliament. But it is precisely a divided and separate responsibility to
Parliament which a Minister refusing to
retire from the Cabinet upon invitation
by its Chief would force upon the community, a monstrous thing and unheard
of in the annlas of representative government. Any subordinate Minister of
the Crown can refuse responsibility for
acts of the Government of which he
does not approve, by resigning, but no
Premier can refuse responsibility for
the acts of a Minister so long an that
Minister is a member of tho Cabinet.
Consequently, it is an inexorable, if unwritten lawi that the Minister must resign as soon as an irreconcilable difference occurs between him and the Premier. I do not suppose that a case has
ever been known before of a Minister refusing to resign under such circumstances. This unheard of thing having
happened, tho only course apparently is
for the Premier to advise the Crowu to
take away the offending Minister's portfolio. Suppose the Crown refuses, that
would be a usurpation of prerogative unheard of for some years. There would
then be no alternative but for the Premier and Cabinet to resign. This would
Invoke two constitutional atrocities, one
of which has already occurred. But the
Minister may be right and the Premier
wrong. I do not mean right in not resigning, but right in having Parliament
and people behind him. He has many
remedies. He may resign his seat, offer
himself for re-election and returned
with a triumphant majority, give a
blow to the Government without resigning his seat. He may carry his followers in the House into opposition, de*'
feat the Government and so vindicate
himself. He may start an agitation in
tho country and bring such a pressure
of public opinion to bear that the Ministry is forced to resign, But surely he
begins ill by defying a Parliamentary
Usage which has its foundation in reason and common sense,
Yours very truly,
\ DAVID   B.   BOGLE.

About Stampedes,
The last chapter in the long history
of stampedes for gold mining propositions is not yet written. When it Bhall
be, it will be learned how little of
the precious metal entered into the elements which originated and promoted
them. It will then transpire that many
stampedes had their birth in the cupidity of some, in the greed of others, including transportation and trading companies, and in the desire of conscienceless speculators to coin dollars out of
the misfortunes of the over sanguine, ignorant and the unfortunate adventurous. It will also be seen that though a
few of the stainpeders unearthed a little
of the shining dust, the many found
only privations, sufferings or death at
the end of their search. A few, a very
few, gold stampedes panned out well.
The first one in the history of stampedes for gold in the west occurred in
1849 when the great rush to California
was inaugurated. The rich placers discovered and worked in that state bear
abundant evidence that the hopes of
many of the pioneer gold seekers ended
in fruition. The gold was there,
was easily obtained, many, if not
all, found it, but the majority lost it,
Bonie by improvidence, or by unfortunate speculation, or by ill health, but all
united in the declaration that California
was a golden state. Another like area
of gold bearing country may never be
found. The' far north may duplicate
California in placets but not in all that
makes a country desirable for salubrity
of climate and for its diversity and
wealth of resources. But even in that
state where every locality was a miniature paradise, Btampedes for more gold
were of too frequent occurrence for the
peace and welfare of those who joined in
the mad rush for sudden wealth. There
are those living who sacrificed their all
in the stampede to the mythical "Gold
lake" in which it was said, great, round,
smooth boulders of g#ld cculd be rolled
out from the clear, cool waters which
covered them.. Tt>'^ Kern river excitement ended in the/ disgust and disappointment ef many/ an(j the enrichment

tbe west. The winter of '58-'59. checked
the hegira; hardships, sufferings and
death overtook the misguided stamped-
ers; American and British government
officials aided tho unfortunates to return
to their homes, and Fraser river remained as a liquid monument only, in
the memory of those who suffered and
lost their all to gather a wealth which
existed only in the fevered imaginations
of the unfortunate stainpeders, But a
few steamboat companies and outfitting
merchants reaped a rich harvest as long
as the craze lasted.
Montana's magnificent mineral, grazing and agricultural possibilities have
been partially made known through the
agency of the first gold stampeders from
the east, south and west. The same
holds true of Idaho and Colorado. The
first settlers in the three states were
gold Seekers. They were the "trail
blazers." Those who came afterward
profited by the success or failure of the
pioneers. Gold hunters pioneered civilization to the great west and northwest.
How many are left to tell the story of
their hazards, their adventures, their
toils and sufferings? But few, But the
story of that few may be read in their
whitened looks, their deeply furrowed
cheeks and in their bent forms. They
see the changes a half century has
wrought; they feel them more.
At the close of the present century it
is seen that a new crop of gold stampeders is in the van. The seme love of adventure, the same lust for gold, the
same determination to make or break
fires them that filled the souls of the old
timers. But conditions are changed.
Tho stampeder of today, though ho
meets difficulties and obstacles which he
must overcome, and finds no flowery
beds of ease Upon either side of his
thorny pathway, has what the old-timers never found at hand. He has railroads, steamshipB and coaches to convey him toward his objective point, and
finds about all the comforts and many
of the luxuries which he left, when he
setB his stakes and commences his work
of fortune building. The present day
stampeder has all these things. But
will he Unearth the gold? Does the
country which has allured him contain
the gold that has made California, Montana and Colorado the greatest mineral
wealth producers in America? Time
alone will tell. When the history of the
Klondike, of the Seven Devils, of the
Buffalo Hump, of the many rich mining
camps of British Columbia and of the
recently discovered gold placers near
Bering straits shall have been written,
the questions will be answered. But of
One thing all may be assured, Stampedes
for gold have civilized howling Wildernesses, made desert places bloom and
blossom as the rose, and prepared the
way for the building of homes, of ham'
lets, of towns and of groat cities, Gold
stampeders may yet make the poles inhabitable,���Western Mining World,

It is told of the late Chief Justice
Cockburn that, while he was in practice,
he was counsel for the plaintiff in a certain case, and a Mr. B. was for the defendant, says Law Notes. Cockburn
called a witness and proceeded to examine bin.'
"I understand," he said, "that you
oalled on the plaintiff.   Is that bo?"
"Yes," replied the witness.
"What did he say?"
Up rose Mr. B., objecting to the. admission of the conversation in evidence.
After considerable argument, the court
retired to consider the point. They
were absent nearly half an hour. When
they returned they announced that Mr.
Cockburn might put his question.
"Well, what did he say," aBked the
counsel.
"PleiiBe, sir, he was not at home," responded the witness, solemnly.*

The curious colored figures often seen
when the eyes aro closed are generally
believed to be due to stimulation of the
retina. Prof. Scripture of Yale, however, thinks that ho has experimental
evidence thut they are due to direct disturbance of the brain. The importance
of this fact, if it be a fact, is thus noted by Dr. Scripture in a letter to Science; "The problem is really one of
importance, If this light is cerebral,
we have a means of distinctly observing
some of the phenomena in the brain.
The cerebral- figures are intimately associated with the contents of dreams.
I believe also that the formB of the figures of cerebral light are intimately
connected with the phenomnia of nutrition in the brain. I find at the present
time that my figures are quite different
from those which I have been accUe-
tomed to observing in past years', this
may correspond to a radical change in
the condition of the nervous system
which I have observed to have taken
place during the past six months. I
find also that the figures on first awakening from sleep are very different from
those seen when the mind becomes fully
awake. Systematic observations by
medical men may show that diagnostic
conclusions can be obtained by asking
patients to describe their cerebral figures. The question at the present time
concerns the sufficiency of the Observations If they are correct and reliable,
there is, I believe, no escape from the
conclusion that the figures are Cerebral.
I can see no reason to believe that my

appearence. Maxwell Stevenson of
Philadelphia, manager of the Highland-
der Mining company, visited Ainsworth
recently, and has started a large force of
men at work on the property. He has
commenced running the 2000-foot tunnel, which is intended to cut the large
ore bodies at a depth of 1,000 feet. This
tunnel is being run within 100 feet of
the line of tho Albion mine, and it is
expected to cut the large vein, which is
already exposed on the 400-foot level of
the Albion. The Highlander tunnel is
in 40 feet and is progressing at the rate
of three feet every 24 hours. Three
shifts are working on the tunnel. Mr.
Stevenson has also started his concentrator at Mile Point, and will treat the
