The favorable situuliou pf Revel-
fur manufacturing is ijriidually bu-
coming recognized. Mr. J. H. Ale-
Lena proposes cstublisbing hero
shortly a sash, dosr and blind factory
uud bus ordered the necessary machinery from Quit, Ont, The building will Ve luxOO feot, two stones
nnil a half high, and will bo erected
in the east end of the town south of
the mill property. Mr. McLean is
confident his venture wil prove a
success and there is no reason why
it should not, with tho material at
his very door and excellent shipping
facilities, to all purls of the distriot,
.Mr. McLean also conloiup'atps the
muuui'uqtiiring of certain grmlos of
furniture should all go well. It is
by the cglajilishmeot of such industries au this that Rovolstoko will
cemc to. thp front.
Tho Sl'^i) is iudebted to Judge
Tunstall for Iho following authotie
information regarding the Trail
Greek oum,i.
There have been 110 locations made
on Trail Creek, of which there ut
least 30 that ore 15 feet aud upwards
in width, The camp is composed of
two distinct groups, in the main
one of which, situated on the old
Government trail the principal prospects are the Lilly May, llomeatako,
Zilor and Blossom. The ores are iu
a sulphide form and carry leud, ziuc
antimony und silvor, There" is u
shaft on the Lilly May 20 feet in
depth which shows nt the bottom u
vein i feetj wide of ore carrying
about 80 oz. of silvor per (ou, choice
pieoes runuiug as high as 180 oz.
The oth,er group lies about 2 miles
to the uorth Lilly May and this also
carries sulphide ore, wjth this difference, that copper and iro,n are the
predominating minerals, wj h a little
antimony, more or leas gold and n
Bintill quantity of silver, Tho Le
Hoi claim is the best kuown pf any
of the prospects in thia group, and
will serve uj a sample, This vein
has been opouod out by an open cut
across tho vein and shows 15 feet
of solid ore which will run about 8
per cent copper, about 10 oz. of silver and varies from ��3 to ��500 in
gold. Part of this has been bonded
to u Spokane Company who are
working 2 tbifts regularly. The
outlook for this to become a first
class mine is good. There are three
othe; locations on this veiu with sb
good crpppiogs,
A Portland C'o.mpany has bonded
and are working two shifts on the
olatmnSt. Elmo and Mountain View.
Thero are thu highest 1,nations in
the camp. With tho copper in this
ore there is a small per eont of leud
aud from 5 to 15 oz. of silver. There
are several other locations on this
vein and all of them are from 20 to
50 feet wide, on which but the assessment bus been dono, but now
Unit the representation is performed
several of tho mine owners are
settling ilc-.wu to a winters work on
some one of theso claims.
The main hope and belief amongst
the mine owners is that they will
have copper in paying quantities.
li. is u tsfit that, eyoijy prospect
worked at has shown i,ac!;oi!,seil copper
with increased depth. Thp Le Roi
bus increased from 7 per cout surface 10.15 per cent, at 10 feet depth,
also carrying un increased amount
of silver, bo thut the ore from this
mine will pay to handle now,

Tim head of thu harpoon was perfectly
