ILLEOILIjEWAET, AllgUSt 17th.
Things around bore continue to
jog along pretty much as usual. All
aro anxiously awaiting the return of
Mr, Mackintosh, who is expected to
put renewed life into the camp aud
make things bum generally.
At Fish Creek things aro progressing very satisfactorily indeed. The
"Elizabeth is improving in richness
as depth is attained. Au ussay of
carbonates made by Mr. W. Pellew
Harvey, of Golden, gave over 700 oz,
silver per ton. This is the highest
assay yet obtained in that locality.
There is a considerable amount of
the same kind in sight. A great
quantity was thrown over the dump,
as it was thought to bo of no value,
but now tbe modus operandi is
changed.
There havo been 23 claims and 1
transfers recordod during the past
week.
A subscription list has been circulated among business men anil
others soliciting subscriptions to put
the Fish Greek trail in better repair.
This shows tho proper spirit, but at
the samo timo it is a bad precedent.
There is no reason to doubt that the
Government Agent would have attended to this hail ho beon asked by
the proper parties and tho
thoroughly explained to him. When
mot by a refusal would have been
time enough to take this action.
Mr, Kellie, M.P.P, has been called

Nakusp, August 17th.
.Vu adventurous party left here ou
Saturday last for an excursion to the
famous hot springs, which are situate
ou the lake shore about 22 miles
north of Nakusp aud 40 from Revelstoke. I ho tourists were .Messrs.
MeDougull, Holman, Cowan, Case,
Thorburn, McRostie, Abriel, Tracey
und An.ii rsun, and Masters Thomas
and MoDougail, They left Nakusp
in un open hoat about 1 p.m., and
with eight meu pulling tbey expeolod
to reach tbe springs that evening.
Rough weather prevented this being
accomplished, and the party had to
camp that night about six miles from
their destination. A jolly night was
spent, however, in spite of wind and
rain, and with story and song the
lime quickly sped. They were up
at dawn, and reached the springs at
an early hour uext morning. Here
ali tested tbe heat of tho water, which
was fouud to vary trom 100 to 110
degrees, just hot enough at the first
dip to make oue imagine himself
badly scalded. The water is strongly
impregnated with iron, and is stated
by uiauy people to have more bone-
fioial medicinal properties thau even
that of lhe famous Banff springs in
the Canadian National Park, There
is certainly some room for such
belief when it is noticed how many
of those who arrive at the springs
weak aud debilitated return well and
strong after a stay of a week or two.
Tbe Nakuspiaus returned home ou
Monday rooming both mentally and
physically recuperated.
Mr. Iloeser, assayer, Eevelstoke,
arrived here last Friday, and left for
home uext day. He has made tbe
round of all the priuoipal miuing
camps in tbe Kaslo and Sloean districts. He says the ore being taken
out there is of a very fine quality,
but the output will not be very great
tbis season.
Mr. .Mahou arrived here from New
Denver last niglit ou his way back
to Vancouver. Ho has scoured interests in many of the must valuable
claims iu tlie Sloean, and is very
much pleas-d with bis investments.
I am grieved to bavu to chronicle
tbe first death at Nakusp. Last Sunday alternoou Mr. Janus Barclay
weutoutou the luke iu aPeterboro
canoe, and nothing has been seen of
him since. The oauuu was found
bottom up about t'.vo miles from tho
shore the sum,- evening; aud uo doubt
is entertained by his friends tbat the
nufortunate man has beeu drowned,
although be was an excelleut swimmer. It came uu to blow heavily a
short time alter he left, and it is
supposed tbe light canoe was capsized by tho forco of the wind. A
thorough search has been made,
every uuok aud cranny along both
shores of the lake haviug beeu
visited, but up to the presont no
trace of the body has been found.
Messrs. Bourne, Rath well, Cowan,
und oth,-rs havo beeu untiring iu
their efforts.
Mr. Barclay, wbo was very popular iu Nakusp, was a carpenter and
builder, aud was ouo of the pioneers
of the towu. Ho had tbe contract
for erecting the Nakusp House, and
boarded at tbat hotel. Ho was well
known iu tho Northwest, where he
served in the N.\V. Mounted Police,
aud afterwards became horse-breaker
to the Cochrane and Oxley ranches,
aud bad a largo number of friemis
and acquaintances in Fort McLeoJ
and Calgary. He originally camo
from Iticbmoud, Ontario, where his
relatives still reside "Jim" was a
r prominent figure in the history of
matter Nakusp, and his cheery laugh and
ready wit will be miasod for u long
time to oome.
The first largo salo of property in
towu took plaoe tbis week, when Mr.
W Cowan, of the Victoria Hotel,
J{,-velstoke, sold out bis interest iu
the Nukusp Houso to his partuer,
.Mr. Hugh Madden, The price was
81,860, whioh is a criterion of how
quickly the wiluo of property biro is
increasing, i'bo Nakusp Houso,
under the able management of .Mr.
Madden, has done a capital busiuoss
since opening, which will no doubt
continue to increase,
there is one tiling which seoius to
be troubling the captain of tho str.
Columbia, and that is finding a lauding placo for freight. He seems to
delight in putting it ashore iu tho
most out-of-the-way places imaginable and as far away Irnui tbe stores
and hotels as possible, bis latest
effort being almost on ihe outer edge
of tho townsite. What his reasons
aru for audi oaMunkeiousnoss no one
seems to have uny idea, but a rumor
is lit ing around that his lots lie iu
that direction.

SATURDAY, AUG. 20  1RU2
Residents ou what ���dionld be the
luain street (and is on the townsito
plan) have felt BOiuewhat aggrieved
that nothing has been done to render
thai street passable for vehicles, while
Government money has been nnd is
now being spent on levelling Main
(or Front) Street and on the making
of a now street, as an outlet at the
eastern end of it. On making inquiries wo find the mutter is just this:
'The Provincial Govornment Agent,
"was allowed $1,000 for street improvements at tho station. He mado
application for an appropriation for
levelling Main Street, which is the
only street having vehicular triilllo.
An extra $100 was granted Tor tbis
purpose, but as the station improvements will amount to more than ��1,000
some of this $400 will have to be
applied thero. Therefore tho residents
on tho street mentioned have not the
least claim to any portion or tbe
money now lining spent on Main
Street. Tbe Provincial Government
<lo not care to spend any money in
Revelstoke, as they have not, and
never had, any interests hero. We
lave often wondered why they spent
bo much money on the streets iu
Nelson. Now we know. They havo
"interests" there. If the said residents on the said neglected street
want to have it graded they must
torn in und do the job thomselves or
cite apply to the owners of the towu-
eite for help. The Dominion Government or Farwell���whicli ?

That Illecillowaet Letter.
Sm,���Will you allow me lo correct
tho statement in my former letter
that the men employed on the Fish
Creek trail paid for packing in their
supplies 1 They had to pay a " portion," aud some of them felt very
sore abont it, as the Government did
Aral, the packing last year. 1 had not
the least desiro to injure Mr. Kirkup,
���who, as evi rybody here knows, looks
well after Government interests aud
lays out Government money to the
best advantage, but when I wrote
that letter the trail from the bridge
to Flat Creek was in a vory bad state.
In fact, there was nu trail but the
railway track, which everybody will
admit was highly dangerous for a
pack train to use. The Monday aftor
my letter appeared in the Staii men
"were put to work thero making a
trail!���which was rather singular in
the face of "your information from
Illecillewaet" that, there was "no
necessity for a trail to Flat Creek."

has been traced by him for a distance
of fifty miles I And wherever tho
"contact" was examined good ore
was found.
At some points tho lode outcrops
on the Duncan Kiver slope, but most
of it is on the Fish Creek and Lardeau side. It passes from the Lardeau to Fish Creek, but bow far it
goes north has not yet boen determined. It is known to go south
beyond the head of Hailey Creek,
and probably as far as the Upper
Kootonay Lako.
On tbe east sido of the head of the
South Lardeau und at the hoad of
Hailey Creek this limestone belt
stands np in mountain masses, and
the numerous rugged peaks loom up
as sentinels overlooking a mountain
rogiou of magnificent grandeur. On
all sides are snow-capped, glacier-
crowned peaks as far as the eye can
reach. Snow fields and solid rock,
minor-like lakes aud beautiful tor-
lvuts, with cascades aud thunderiug
falls, all go to make the view one of
true sublimity.
Notwithstanding the ruggedness
of this country it would be an easy
matter to construct a railway through
it by way oi the Lardeau Pass. The
writer can verify the claim made by
the Kamloops "Sentinel" last week,
viz,: " A route that is entirely feasible, running from Iievelstoke to tbe
Northeast Arm of tbe Upper Arrow
Lako, theuce through the Lardeau
Pass for about 45 miles, passing near
Trout Lako and reaching Iho navigable waters of Kooteuay Lake at
tbo mouth of tbe Lardeau River.
The advantages of this route are
superior to any other so far proposi d
or discussed. It reaches Kootenay
Lako its, If, which ia open water the
entire year. . . . The Lardeau
railway would, therefore, iu connection with steamers, control the
business of tbe lake towns and mines
absolutely,"
The great mineral fields of this
section would justify tbe construction
of suoh a road at once. The mines
already found can furnish over 1,000
tons of gulena-carboDate ore daily.
In fact, three lodes in the Lardeau
country can do this very thing at tbe
present time.
There are in this region some of
the largest galena ledges ever discovered on tlio American continent.
Thc amount of gold, silver, copper
and lead that might be extracted
from this portion of the Kooteuay
isirict    is    i -���' md   computation.

Presbyterian Church Notes.
At a largely attended meeting of
tbo church and congregation recently
held a letter was read by Mr. C.
Pitts, ohairman of the board of management, from the Rev. C. P. Way,
tondering his resignation. This was
heard with much regret, and it was
moved ��nd carried nnauimouslj that
Mr. Way be asked to reconsider his
decision. It was intimated at the
close of the service on Sunday evening that thn rev. gentleman would
continue with the congregation nntil
May next, thus completing a term of
two years.
During the last 15 months there
have been celebrated 11 marriages
and 15 baptisms.
Th? Rev. Dr. Robertson paid ns a
visit- last Friday and gave a most
interesting aud instinctive address
in the evening.
The Rev. C. P, Way has within
the last six weoks preached special
sermons to the Oddfellows, Orangemen and Freemasons respectively,
It is proposed shortly to hold a
churoh social of a nuique character.

stingy in their praise.
