Into trip from Revclstoko to Ainsworth and return.
Tho weather sinco leaving nt 8
a. ni. Ihe 15th ult., has been very
favorable for tourists. The "Lytton"
is running very smoothly, and since
the boiler and londiug steam pipes
have been mjrloied in abostos packing,has no difficulty with gcod wood,

which is nmple power for tho river

and hulls for river navigation than
the "Lytton," but she seems well
adapted for the requirements of
these waters, and tourists aro well
pleased with her speed, management
and general accomodations.
'Arrivjrig at Sprout at 11 p. m. I
started next (Tuesday) morning in
company with Ed. Wilson, on horseback for Nelson, crossing the Slocan
by ferry, and, after a two miles! trip
again taking ferry to "Wards,"
where we had a fish and grouse
dinner. From this central point oue
can go to auy part of the world, with
choice of routes via. tho R.R. trail
on the uorth or the Government trail
to the south of the JfoOtonay, Which

been somewhat uneasy, fearing the
work would not be fihi.-bod in season
|o let (hem out before tho boat stopped running to Revelstoke,
Arriving at Nelson at 10 a.m Wednesday tin d iy was spent iu looking o-
ver this favorably located prospective
metropolis. Messrs. Hume and
Lemon havo very good stores, well
stocked. Messrs. Gardner,Thorhurn,
and Gilker k Wells are centrally
situated aud carry a variety of goods
suitable, for the market, which is a
little dull at present. Thursday in
company with Recorder Gillin, I
visited tho Hall mines, seven miles
up the mountain by trail and ten
miles by tho new waggon road, which
is surveyed bu; only completed four
miles at a cost of ��5000,'"It is estimated that the other six miles will cunt
812,000 but may bo built for loss, It
is surveyed for a continuous winding
doH-u-griiile from tho mine to Nelson.
Mr. Wiuslow Hall explained that
owing to the death uf Mr. Atkins and
the unsettled state of the ownership,
visitors wore not invited to oxaniiue
lithe "Silver' King," but he gave mo
samples of the oro uow being taken
out, which is rich Peacock Cupper;
tho !)olid ore being shipped iu such
by mule train 'to Nelson, and thenco
by steamer and rail to the Ri finery
in Moutaua. The oro that ia disseminated through quart! iii retained
lor future local oouoontra ting ami
smelting, Forty men r.ro employed in
tho miue aud some of them say that
there is at present an inexhaustible
supply of ore-body varying from 20
to 10 feet ill width.
A new i^nd discovorcd by Pat
Fleming two and a half miles south
east from the Silver King, is willed
the "Jumbo," and shows up samples
of grey and peacock copper iu small
stratas.
The " Dandy" is the wost extension
of Ihe Silver King and is a substantial vein of concentrating galena oro
that may develop into Peacock cop
per as depth  is  reached,   It was j
staked by Keller k I*'ux  two  day's '
after tho Hall's made their location.
At the suggestion of   Mr. Kelley, j
Fox k Cook started from Colville to
follow the Hall's'! fWtli May, 1867.
Until parties were delayed by snow,
and   Iho   Halls   returned and   went
round by Bonner's Ferry, and staked
Iheir claims  Jin     28lh,   Fox and
Cook wero out o' grub when within
six or eight miles of the mountain,
and had to return jllty mjles to Fort
Sheppard for a supply.    Cook returned from thero and Fou accompanied by Mike Koely came through
ou Hall's old trail,arriving oue day'
later than tho Hulls.    They located
Iho Dandy July 1st,
The "Iroquois" is showing up
well in quantity and quality of ore
matter, in (act, the whole mountain
with its genoral formation of granite
and lalcose-scliist is cut up with
motalic veins of which forty or moro
have been located, recorded, and
developed enon'gfi to warrant tha investment of capital.
The new (own plot survey of Nelson embrace;; about 300 acres of land
to tho south and wost of the original
plots, It is likely that a modification of the Government requirements
to erect a $500 building on each lot
within six months, will bo made
soon, if not thero Will be a slow sale
of lots.
Professor Dawson reports Ihe
height of the Silver King to be 4 310
feet above fho lake, Aneroid measurement indicates a height of 4,500
feet. The Dandy's shaft and tunnel
has an altitude from tho lake of
about 4,000 feet.
The trip on the Galena from Nelson to Ainsworth is made in five
hours including stoppiig- s. There is
very little graBS land ajiing the route.
The mountains are rockyand sparsely
timbered principally with birch, fir,
sprtica and hemlock, The combination of mountains, trees and beauti.
ful clear water makes delightful
scpnery, and iho sportsmen can revel
in the abundance of li.di and game
that biB skill can command, but the
success and wealth of this section do-
ponds on its mineral output. That
its resources iu this line are exceedingly prolific and valuable no reasonably intelligent and unprejudiced miuing man who carefully
examines the development of located
prospects, can deny.
The present town of Ainsworth or
Warm Springs Camp, is represented
by two stores, two hotels aud a restaurant, several offices, dwelling
houses, touts and Indian lodges. A
large hotel is in progress of erection
and Mr. MeRihhon is adding a two
story frontage to the Vancouver house.
Mr. Buchanan has just sent up a raft
and scow of lumber, which will nl-
low several parties to commence tho
erection of buildings that havo been
delayed on account of scarcity of
bnildiug material. As al! thn lots
in the old townsito survey have beon
sold Mr. Farwell. C. E., has just
completed tho Burveyaud plotting of
additional lots Ibat will soon be
placed on the market for purchase.
It ia rumored that Mr. Ainsworth
contemplates the early erec'ion of a
large hotel near the hot spring, tho
water of which will ba couroyud to
the bath moms that will be liberally
distributed through tho house.
Tlie mountain hero slopes up

Regarding the mining claims of
this district comprised in a belt of
Ovo miles north anl south and ix-
tending up tho mountain to near its
summit the general showing is so
good that single claims are rated by
comparison. Auy one of thi* claims
on which development work bus
been done shows np mineral iu
quantity and quality that if found
isolated would eanse considerable
excitement. Where development has
been pushed, as in the case of the
"United" [altitude above lake 1,753
feet I and "Skyline," [altitude above
lake 0,BOO foot] the showing of rich
ere in pativs, wire, nod ruby silver,
carbonates and solid galena, assaying
from f.O to 1,200 oz. of silver to tho
ion is so considerable, as it lavs on
tho dump in sacks ready for shipment, tbat a for, enquiries as to cost
of working tho mines, transporting
and trealing Ihe ores wilj convince
the investigator that groat Wealth,
lies dormant in this mountain only
requiring capital and .-killed labor to
yield rich returns far investment.
Owing to the formation running
nearly north and south the water is
bold in the mountain and consequently at a depth of from 30 tu 50
feet pumping machinery is required,
lo allow tho further sinking of
theshaltsaud drifts ou the veins.
Many of the prospects are situated
so that tunneling at depth to relieve
this water accumulation is uot practicable, but tho oro is good anongh
to warrant libera! outlay for rccui.-
machinery,
Oaing to the limeitone, marl.lo

tiou uf tho mountain, together with
the great pressure that tbo gangue
matter in Iho fissure aod gash veins
have evidently been subjected lo,
experts predict Hint the lends will
pinch out aud fail to carry depth.
Time and development will demonstrate this problem, but I predict
that thero will be ninny notable exceptions to this predicted failure.

A MODEL CAMP.
Warm Springs, Kootenai District,
I', C, Sept. 10.���When it is remembered that these mining camps arej
but a short distance from the American border, and that they are poo-
pled to such a considerable extent by
men who have come from tho United
States, it is not a littlo strange at
Iirst to rind so many ppjnfs jif sharp
contrast between them and the mining camps across tho line. Some of
these differences havo been pointed
out already in these letters, but there
is one that attracts at once the notice
of every visitor. Thai is the absolute quiet and good order that prevail everywhere in this district. Im
liglne, if you can, of a camp in the
United States, with the population,
prosperity aud rapid growth of the
Warm Springs, without a 'bad man,'
a faro bank, hurdy-gurdy, or 'concert' saloon within ifs' borders. Not
aven a 'man for breakfast' any morn
ing���no, not oven an unmarked
tunned to betoken the last home of
sniue unfortunate victim of tbe bullet or Ihe knife I Imagine, if you
:au, a mining camp where neither
sheriff,'deputy, nor oven constable
is needed I Not even a hint of that
lust resort of au outraged American
public���the vigilance committee.
This district, since its formation as
such, has a record of but two cases
of assault with deadly weapon, and
one of them was among tho railroad
laborers below Nelson." The oitua-
tion scorns to be almost as unexplained as it is unique and gratifying.
Take Warm Springs, fer instance.
But for th? bearded men iu their
rough gaib and the newness of the
houses aud cabins, you might almo.-t
attract the lawless gangs that followed'every new slriki) from Deadwood
to Tombstone, I have propounded
the conundrum to several men of
wide experience in the lifo of mining camps,and the almost invariable
answer js to the effect that lawbreakers find tho [climate too unhealthy
Perhaps this is the csseuco of the
real truth of the matter. There is a
certain cold blooded rigidity in the
British execution of the law that
strikes tho evil-doer with a shiver of
terror, It may be that an appointed
judiciary is more uiinlentiug aud
less liaule to bo swerved by efforts
to avert legal retribution than au
elected one. But, whatever may be
tho reason, justice in this country is
swift, sure and pitiless, and the result is felt in the absence from these
mining camps of a class that has
hung like a millstone about the neck
uf honest endeavor in every' American district for somo years. It is safe
to say that if a man discovers and
locates a claim here and honestly
and fully complies with the simple
laws, both general and district, that
have beeu euacted for the common
gcod, he will find that hJ3 right in
the property will bo gnaranteed him
by tho public will and the government's strength. He may sell it or
he may work it in absolute freedom
from jumpers or blackmailers. He
need not fear that, in tho course of
negotiations for its sale, for instance,
ho will bo called ou to island and
deliver'a portion of the. purchase
money under pain of having a shadow thrown on the title through some
systematic Bcoundreliisni,��� Spokane

It may ;ie sinled without fear or
dispute that Miss Ella Ewing, of
Fairmount, Clark County, Mo., is
the possessor of bigger feet than any
other woman in the country. The
young lady, who is now but 18 years
of age, ordered last week a pair of
shoes from the Tennant-Stribling
Shoo Company, and *hey are now
very marly finished. The shoes are
the largest ever turned out iu St.
Louis. The lapt over which they
were constructed measures 15'4
inches iu length and i1/, iuches in
width at the ball of tho foot. There
is'pnpugll leather in one of the heels
to build live pairs of ordinary ladies'
shoes, and tho leather in each shoe
would be sullicient, if it all could be
utilized, to make thirly pairs of or-
dinay shoes. A. W. Fuote, who
made the lasts, states that withiu the
period of his eighteen years' experience in tho shoe business he has
never seen anything to quite equal
Miss Living's foot. It took hin a
day and a half to look up the timber,
and when he finally secured a large
enough maple block lo hew the last
fronvh'e was obliged to till up thp
instep with leather.

Of course, sho knew,
But, bashful too,
She wa ited, woman fashion,
At last one day,
The gi ssips say,
While they were silly chatting,
A mouse pettye,
Run by their feet
And shot across the matting.
He was so near
That wild with fear,
Sbe threw her arms about him.
He clasped her tight
And soothed her fright -
How could she ever doubt him ?

The Beauties of Banff.
A run of nine to ten hours from
Glacier, alwajs through grand and
majestic scenery and often among
terrible and gloomy heights and
jjo^ges, brought us to Banff, near the
western slope of the Eockies. By
the way, shortly after leaving Vancouver we tookou an observation car
and continued to have one, except
for a short distance, until well into
jhe great plains ea3t of the mountains.
This system adds gre.fttly to the pleasure of passengers through fine
scenery.
Banff is by many considered the
gem of this great road. Because of
its beautiful locution and also because of its warip and hot mineral
springs the Canadian Pacific Company has erected here the most elegant and best appointed hotel in a
will, mountainous region probably
jn the world. Indeed, it will compare favorably with the host hostel
ries in the neighborhood of large
cities. Here in a wild basin of the
mighty backbone of the continent,

fjui-bs, all of the delicacies, luxuries
of a'i'ity ho'cl, coupled with tho hygiene of a sanitarium, the ozone and
bracing atmosphere of a lofty alti
tnde, and the glorious scenery of a
mountain fastness. In \\a Raising
rooms, surrounded by costly furniture, oue can listen to niusio from a
superb piauo, and in tho saloon can
satisfy his appetite with viands prepared by a first-class chef. One can
loiter lazily around the broad piazzas
girdling the great hotel, and let vision lose itself among lofty, rocky,

has a soft bed to sleep upon, surrounded by tasty furniture, and sits
in a large dining-room attended by

hotel an angler now and then catches
a trout of over a pound weight, and
in a lake a few piles off in the park
is rewarded with speckled fellows of
fine si/e and with lake trout uot infrequently running np to forty
pounds. I met at Glacier Mr. E. S.
P. of Chicago with his family going
west. He caught a (iue lot in Devil's
Lake near Banff, one a lake trout
weighing thirty-six. There are few
mountain resorts offering so many
natural attractions as Ibis P,ocky

A RIVER BLACK WITH FISH,
We had remarkable visible evidences of the strange and irresistible
instinct of the salmon to climb steep
waters from the sea. For many
miles the Eraser runs with great
speed. Below every projecting rock
there is an eddy more or less large.
In these eddies salmon were congregated by the thousands, showing
their black backs and fins an inch or
two above the surface. These little
whirlpools are generally many feet
deep, aud the finny voyagers must
have been piled upon each other
several feet deep. Over oue crystal
stream running into the river road
passes on a short bridge. In a pool
in this creek, say twenty by fifty feet,
the fish were so thick that a man
could almost have walked dry shod
across the stream on salmon backs,
In the ascent of the fish they fail
often to overcome the rapid ci;rrent
and stop to rest in the eddies, I do
not think I exaggerate in saying we
saw hundreds of thousands, possibly
millions, in a part of our run not
exceeding thirty or forty miles, The
fish looked small to us for only a
few inches of their backs could be
seen. A fellow-passenger, however,
assured u�� that such bs wo saw ran
from sij to nine pounds. They were
no Indians fishing, as there were
three years ago. Their stook is already iaid in. A hundred aud eighty
thousand fish of about eight pounds
weight were caught in one day last
week at New We.-tminster. A man
of that locality told me that now was
but the beginning of tbe running
season, and in three weeks there
would be a hundred thousand where
there was one now. Tbe scientist
was probably not mistaken when he
asserted that the water of the world
could produce more food for man,
acre lor acre, than the land, i tear
the canneries are causing too many to
be killed now,

WATER WORKS  AND ELECTRIC POWER,'
A Water Works Co, for Revelstoke
is in process of formation under the
Joint Slock Companies Act, for the
purpose of taking over from the
Dominion Government certain water
rights for fire and domestic uses.
There ia likely to be contention perhaps as to who male the first or the
most deserving application, as more
than one has gone forward to Ottawa
for consideration by the Govern mi 11.
It does not appeal to us that the little mountain .stream wbieh is Bought
to he acquired ob a coneession for
tin-so objects, will he " sufficient
to provide water the year round for
a town of 1000 peoplo, It this time
of the year i'. hucome nearly dry, and
it is said rights havo been acquired
by the Smelter Co, and the C. P. R.
to the streams further to the east.

Revelstoke'^ for au adequate water
supply if it should becomo a city of
