29 Gold Commissioner,
Revelstoke, September 20th, 1800,
It is reported that the C, P. R.
will have a corps of surveyor.) injtbo
field between Revelstoke'and Upi>er
Arrow Lake before January is out
if tin' weather continues favorable.
So far thi) winter, the enow fall has
been very light ami weather mill,
anl explorations might have been
carried on without interruption, It
Mould almost seem to bo inopportune and unseasonable for engineers
to undertake this work before too
back-bone of winter is broken, The
Star however remembers commenting a year ag* with some distrust
on the work of the engineers who
laid out the railroad between Sprout
ami Nelson, under very similar cir-
cnmstiincos and wo are now confronted and we might say quite
satisfactorily answered, by tbo fact
tbat tlie Columbia & Kooteuay Railway is almost completed. Wo therefore welcome this muvomeat, in tbe
belie; that the railway authorities appreciate tho importance of a winter
lino to the Upper L ike so that communication cau bj kept up by lake
and rail with Sjiro.it aud Kutonay
Lake the entire year.
A silling nf the County Court will be
be held "ii Jlond iy the 12th day of January, 1891, at In o'clock a. in., at the

''The member of the Domiuion
House of Cjmm.ius from Yule-Knot-
euay district is largely interested in
a steamboat line tbat is part and
parcel of a trauiportation company
that was granted 210,1100 acres oi laud
bv the provincial legislature last
The above is au extract from the
Miner, and states   what the editor
ought to know���if bo   does   lint���is
! utterly untrue,   Mr. Mira is not m-
j (crested in a steamboat line that was
; granted the lund  referred to,   The
transportation co. that his steamboat
line is ''part at d parcel of" did not
receive its charter from the provincial legislature, but, was incorporated
under the  General   Statutes  as   a
! Joint Stock Company,
Again, tho  Miner says, "It [The
' Staii] says that the transportation
I company is not iu the habit of ac-
j quiring rights and giving them tip
without  a  struggle.   Wo said   dis-
| tinotly that the Canadian  Pacific
: Railway was not iu the habit of giving np rights without a struggle, but
nothing whatever  about any water
! transportation company.
This effort of the Miner to m ike
Mr. Mara responsible for tbe odious
location of certain blocks of laud
by tho railway company, partakes
too much of that conimou and unscrupulous abuse, which ia almost
the sole weapon of that paper. The
editor bad at baud tho means of
knowing it was uot true, at the time
the aspersion was penned.
The Miner'* supposition tbat Mr.
.Mara controls the Staii, is equally
wide of the mark. If it were true,
we should consider ourselves fortunate,
��� "    I '������'������   gBBSgSS
Tho Miner devotes considerable
space to the Stab ou the qiiOiitioa of
railway reserves, and charges it with
being indiffereLt iu rolaliou to them.
It happens that the Stab is on record in tbe mutter as long ago as Nov.
23, lhbO, in mi article on "Railroad
and Land Grant," which was long
before the Miner bad un existence,
uud therefore it can bo excused for
its ignorance. Wo quote from tbo
Staii of that date:
"The fact, however, is now plain
that Kootenay Luke is ou Ibe point
of establishing a record us tbo greatest producer of ore freight soutward,
and of supply freights inward, in
Domiuion uf Canada, and lor its size
ou tbe continent of America, What
now do tbe charter becking people
ask, aud what should bo granted to
them 1 Is it not enough that tbey
should bo given the carrying of this
freight inward uud outward 'I Must
they baio u laud gruut iu additiou to
tho now demonstrated freight producing capacity of tbe district? It
strikes us that this demand has como
too late ; that there is no lunger any
necessity lor acceding to it; that
the importance oi Kooteuay's mines
is proven, and that there is uu ex-
perimoutul stage���no interregnum in
ihe profits���that a railway company
must needs havo bridged over trom
tbe treasury ol lbe people."
We believed at that time (hat Kootenay District sbonll be exempted
from legislation giving land grants
to railways, booanse its freight producing capacity hud been, or was on
tho point of being proven, but these
views had no second, so fur us we
remember, even from the editor of
"Truth," a paper which hai ths ambition to cover the entire province ill
its- editorial scope, ami m ire uBpeo-
i.dly Kooteuuy District, from which
its editor had then but recently removed, Tho views of the
Stab were overrul id, and like a good
democratic ciliz'n, wo submitted lo
the majority, It is our policy to
m. ike on retires heard before events
ore sottlod, rather thun make ourselves ridiculous by raising a clunor
afterwards when nothing can be ac
oomplished by it,
It is still our belief that the quickest way to obtain the relief sought,
is to treat the railway as if it secure,
rights which mu-it, have eousilera-
tion. If "litigation ia the bane of
the mining industry," tbe course to
be pursued should be the oue tbat
will avoid it. We could uot far a
moment suppose that the quickest
way to "knook out" the Canadian
Paoifio Railway would be by challenging them to a combat which
would inevitably end iu a long litigation.
Tho discussions whioh were earned ou when the proposition was
made to British Columbia to becomo
a member of the Confederation,
could have much light thrown upon
them at tbe present day, as to whether it has been a matter of profit or
loss to the Proviuse. But whatever
it may havo been in this respect,���
if against the province, it waa the
price paid for tho privilege of being
more exclusively Canadian, which
the construction of Oanuduin Pacific
Railway enabled it to bee una. Before this time, it was a Pacific Coast
province, closely allied in interest to
tho American territories to tbe southward ; after rards, it became a homogeneous portion of the entire Do-
minim of Canada, Tuis connection
has its compensations, one of which
is fonuJ in the fact that tho power
of Great Britain can be invoked to
defend its rights, as bus beeu proven
in regard to fur sealing in Dealing's
Tho National Tolicy of tho present
Dominion Government, is the one
thing that became absolutely necessary iu order that the Uauudiau Pa-
oilic Railway might have a reason
for its existence, because without
this policy thero would be nothing
for the road to carry over the long
distances of its lino, und it would
uot therefore have earuiug capicity
sufficient to pay tbe interest on its
Reciprocity, to this national highway, has this moaning,���That from
Port Arthur to Victoria, where the
railroad runs noar tbo boundary line
the eutire distance of nearly two
thousand miles, at every accessible
point, the Canadian towns built up
by tbo railroad would be supplied
by American goods, ovor short Hues
of transport, tho road deprived of its
freight, ami Canadian merchants and
manufacturers at the cast lose their
market. Is Col. Baker au advocate
of reciprocity, in view of such con-
sequcuces ?
Trail Crook  Mln��Sa
The Trail Creek minou lie about
twelve miles north of tbo iutoruu-
tionul boundary, und near the Columbia river, und therefore lie more
convenient to Spokane Pulls than
auy of tho mining camps of British
Columbia. Its supplies naturally
must come from this city, sud as
already Spokane capital has become
interested there, some details of the
mines will prove of interest,
There are at present about 120
locations, which are divided iuto
two district belts, The smaller ones
with about forty locations, are veins
carrying lead, antimony, silver and
gold. Those voius are iu size from
two to ton feet, sumo of the ore being of gool quality, running as bich
in tho precious mini nils as ��180,
Bilver predominating, the formation
being a dark syentic rock, Oil fix
veins of the group considerable
development wo-k hai been done, of
which Lily May, Zi'nr, II un -stake,
are tbe most prominent, with other
veins with as g )od surface showiu g.
The large group commences about
one and ono-hulf miles north from
tha Lily May group, and is found in
n grey syenite, nnd the veins in thia
lis well as in tlm olher group
are Assures, cutting Iho formation at
various angles, As fur as known nt
present, but live defined veins have
beeu found, but each of t'l "> vi im
havo from live to tii'teeu locations
Three of these veins, on then- whole
length, are not hiss in nny place limn
fifteen feet iu width, and in places
there arc croppings showing seventy-
live feet.
The ore is an iron and copper in
sulphide form, carrying b.-'th gold
and silver, in varying quantities,
assays varying from S3 to 8506, in
which gold is the predominating
metal. The development to far on
theso big veins has been attained
shows an increase in cupper, gold
and silver aud the great hope of the
camp is the belii f that copper is
there in paying quantities.
Ono location the Lo Boi, is being
developed by shaftiug by some well-
known Spokunites, aud they are prepared to work two shifts all winter.
From this claim the best assays of
tbo camp have come. It lias fifteen
feet of width of ore iu sight, with
croppings yet above and below.
Tin-re has been a paraleil vein found
withiu the limits of thu Le R ii claim
which is as wide as too one worked
nt, and i3 as yet virgin ground,
A Portland company has bonded
and is preparing to work three
claims, called St. Elmo, Mountain
View, aud Spar. These claims are
the only ones carrying galena in this
northern group of mines, and are at
a higher altitude than any other
claims in the district. The St. Limo
and Mountain View are located ou
the same vein, which is of great
width, though its exact siz,.' is yet to
be determined, The ore is a copper,
load Bulphide, carrying silver.
Eight or ten other claims have recently passed iuto the hands of Spokane people ��ho, us far as known,
will uo! do auy great amonut of
development till the opening of
spring, The highest mine in the
camp is uot above 8,000 feet altitude
and to date is entirely clear of snow.
The larger group lie ou a mountain
with a southerly exposure and therefore will be free from enow early in
the spring,
A road from tho mines to the
steamboat landing un the river will
cost but little, there beiug but six
miles distance with no heavy grades
uud a series of level benches for tha
greater part of the way. Prom the
luuding to tbo Little Dalles h about
au hour's run for a steamboat, and
the camp is assured of a daily service next dimmer, thence by tho
Spokane Palls ,): Northern to thia
city ; aud thenco to any smelter to
wbieh it is desired to send ores.
Taken as a whole the outlook is
very favorable for a Brst-olaSB mining camp. The veins show permanency and endless quantities of ore.���

the season was about 4500 tuns, exclusive
of 150,000 foot of-timber.'av,d lumbor, 19
curs, and one locomotive and tender. The
company is now building near Nelson, on
Kootenay river, a large steamer to curry
ores from the Kootonay Lake mines to the
Columbia and Kooteuay Railway for transportation to Rovelstoko ami for general
business on tho lake and river. We have
no doubt (although it has not been announced) that another powerful light-draft
steamer will be built at Revelstoko this
winter in order lhat a daily connection may
bo made between the Columbia & Kootonay
Railway at Sproat and tho Spokane and
Northern at Little Dalles, and also.to maintain a line of equal efficiency betwoon Sproat
and Revelstoke. The Kootenai will doubtless he employed, when the state of water
will permit, in carrying ere, m the towing
of barges similarly freighted, and other
heavy material. Mr. J, A. Mara is manager of the company, and Mr. F. G. Christie is the steamer agi ut, located in the new
quarters of tho company near the old dock.

Oa the Lauark claim, (he tunnel has
beeu extended 300 feet, making a
tot .1 length now of 500 feet. The
vein is rich in character an 1 is from
H'j to 0 feet wide, Four years aiio
