The Victoria Times, in its issue of
Inst Monday, paid its respocts to tho
Stah, in several paragraphs, which
as usual did not reach ns till 11 o'clk
this Saturday morning, too lato for
auy further reference to it this week,
Tbe Miner accused tho Stab of appealing to tho Govornmont to ordor
all crown grants published in its columns. The next week it states that
it was wrongly informed, but did not
give the name of the originator of its
mis-information, *ho of course was
not the Gold Commissioner, but somo
one else who showed too great an eagerness to give the Star ii kick at
the expense of the truth.
The Minor now says that the Stau
threatened to write to tbo Government if it did not get the official
printing, and charges "Mr, Vail, the
manager," with haviusf uttered tho
threat. Mr. V, answers that he did
not threaten to write to the Government, neither did he write, and he
very much regrets, that tbe Gold
Commissioner, iu so understanding
b.im, misunderstood him-
T&e editor of the Miucr sees a
point clearly, and if need be bits it

let his too willing partisans mislead
him into hitting wide ol tho murk,, as

I havo at some length neglectod ray
duties as correspondent of llio Star,
I urn engaged in occupations foreign
to newspaper letter wilting, and in
the past have exehangod tho implements of mechanical industry for the
pcu, only because questions of public inter, st seemed to demand a voice
which there was no ono to supply.
1'uitof lato a host of writers, regular,
special, transieut and otherwise havo
Bent their communications from
KanUnay lako to grace your columns,
theso of yonr contemporaries; and
the local paper here, edited with the
well known vim and industry of its
staff, is iu the field as our particular
advocate and spokesman.
Two years ago thn existence of
promising mines in this section was
a fact known to but few, while fower
Mill knew where Kootenay lako win,
on how they might got there; ami
���rtill fewer had any disposition to
bravo thu dangers or hardships of
iho trip. Under tbe circumstances
(be columns of tho newspaper wore
, an obvious channel for the dissemi-
jV nation of information, and the at
traction of attention, and to this end
wero freely used. Tho power of the
pen bus beeu amply illustrated iu
Ibe results achieved. Kootonay lake
is noi today a terra incognita, but
has becomo, instead a focal point of
interest to which the eyes of laborers
colonists, capitalists, writers, artists,
politicians and scientists aye turned,
and toward which 'the footsteps of
many of them are tending. Two
years ago it required an agitation almost fierce to gefca trail out out lead-
to lbs Toad Mountain mines. Now
four railways are tinder construction
or survey to compete for our trade
Two yeara ago thesoft-hcadedncss of
the men who built lbe Despatch at
Revelstoke was popularly conceded.
Now, the captain, who was also by
turns tbe pilot and the engineer, and
the purser and a deckhand ou tbat
marvellous catamaran, is the commodore of a line of splendid steamers.
Two years ago John Lodge and
partner supplied tbe mines with
sawn lumber, out with a wbipsaw.
Iu a fow days cousnmers cau have,
their choice of hoards cut by either
of six saw mills. Three months ago
it could not be said that any ore-
producing mine iu British Columbia
hud ever reached a paying basis.
Today we have at least ono mine
lure supplying a splendidly equipped crusher, which it is understood turns out a net product of $400
per day.
With a long list of facts uuch as
ibese, which might bo enumerated,
und which have been duly enumerated through the columns of the
press, it seems a superfluous task to
���write for the mere sake of attracting
public atteution. Your correspondent frequently gets or sees letters
from inquirers ns to the outlook in
the Kootenay lake district for investment ot employment in different
lines of business. I am not disposed
to fcbe over-sanguine Jor enthusiasm
tic, I have seen more or less of the
rise and decline of booms throughout Western Canada. I have never
seen the raw material of which wild,
crajy-booms aro made lying around
in such reckless profusion and in bo
dangerous combination, bb in the
Lake Kojtenay district s,t present.
The man may be wise who stays
away from here for tho next two
years, but he will be wiser than
twenty-thousand of his fellow men if
he does so stay away. To those who
like to he in tho swim, who thiuk
their neryons system can stand the
excitement of a boom, I can quite
confidently extend tbo invitation to
come on. Half a dozen years hence
tbey can muse upon an episode
in their lives with the soliloquy "All

Some Texas Snakes.
Bull snakes are found all tbe way
from Canada to tbe gulf, but in the
Lone Star State they grow to unusual size and are exceedingly numerous. Tbey inhabit river bottoms
and timber land aud aro porfeotly
harmless in overy respect, Tbey
am not poisonous, are non-aggressivo
and will not seek a light unless under speciul conditions. The conditions are to encounter some snake
which is poisonous, and then there
is war from tho start. Especially
do tbey hato a rattlesnake, The two
are tho deadliest id foes, and this is
a strange provisiou of nature in regard to the poisonous and non-
poisonons members of tbe ophidian
A black snake baa no venom, but
be has everlasting powers of constriction and will instantly tackle
any poisonous snake he encounters
and probably vanquish him. The
same may bo said of the bull-snake,
He is peaceable in nature and will
seldom fight his own kind, or tackle
snakes that are not poisonous, but a
venomous snake, and especially a
rattler, wi.l find himself in trouble
every time if a ball, black, or king
snako espies him. The latter is the
wonder of ophidians. A diminutive
specimen, scarcely more than three
feet long, yet the little fellow is bo
active, ao wary, and is endowed with
such rare pluck, that be is truly and
unquestionably the king of tho family.
I was out after peccaries, or musk
bogs, and sat down under a bunch
of chaparral, near a stream of water,
to rest and to eat a bit of lunch.
While thus employed I was somewhat startled to see a moccasin oome
dashing through thu grass within a
couple of yards of me aud go dashing head over heels, bo to speak,
into the water. After him, like a
shot, was an elongated streak of
bright green, Iu he weut, too. and
then I knew there was fun in store,
The wuler was a sort of pool, without much of an inlet or outlet, and
unless by going across rocks and
sand, ov by coming back on shore
again, neither combatant could escape.
Sure enough, aftor racing and
tearing around the pool like mad,
both pursuer and pursued emerged
from the opposite side and proved to
bo, as I thought, a cotton-mouth
moccasin aud a rather small king
snake. The latter was after tbe other
however, and before the big fellow
gave up the race or could throw him
self into an attitude of defence the
king snake was upon him. The sole
and entire power of the latter reptile
lies in his wonderful constricting
abilities. He has no fangs, no poison
or nothing to defend himself with
save his coils, but theso are so
powerful and bo terrible in compressing tbat netbiug in 'the animal
or reptile world, according to its
sizo, can begin to, compare with him
for Ibis especial quality.
No sooner had thn moccasin stopped and turned to defond himself
than like lightning his enemy jumped upon hiia and proceeded to
squeeze the life out of his ugly carcass. Tighter aud tighter grew tbe
coils, always arranged bo tbat the
big ene could not strike, and pretty
soon tbo king's body waa nearly lost
to view, so slender had it grown
from constriction and ao deep was
he iu the fat flesh of the moccasin..
It looked like a green cord wound
tight around the latter's body.
At last tbe moccasin ceased resistance und allowed his body to bang
loose ami inert. For ten minutes
louger did, the king snake hold bin
grip, then gradually loosening it-
hut always ready to resume bis
squeezing should his enemy exhibit
nny sifjns of life���finally be uncoiled
himsi If entirely, Ban that tho moccasin was no more, turned his back on
the scone, and went gliding through
Idle brush,
are quite numerous. Iu tho lowlands, and especially in meadows
and river bottoms they are fouud in
great numbers. Nobody harms them,
neither wliitoB or negroes, and even
Mexicans spem to understand their
good qualities for lliey seldom if
ever kill one. When soldiers are in
ramp and find a great runny king
snakes iu the vicinity, Ihey know it
is a good sign, for poisonous snakes
will steer clear of that locality and
never visit it while there is one of
the royal breed about.

We are advised that at the United a
good cabin, blacksmith shop, and two
ore houses have heen built, and that already over 500 tons of ore have been
mined since the mine was purchased by
Dr. Campbell. An assay has been made
of the ore about eight from the surface,
and it gave 41 ounces silver. The le lge
is stiy as large as. ever,, and another
crosscut has bean foiled ooming in showing three feot of solid ore. Dr. Campbell writes that he will have full 1000
tons of ore on the dump before October
1st., aud that the United will furnish all
tbe lead wanted for the smelter; that 50
tons ore oan now be taken out daily, il
men enough were put on. He says, 'T
was offered $50,000 cash for it-first cost
$7,500. I will start work on tho No. 1
next week."
