Gold Discoveries in Colorado
Gold has been found in dry
creeks in tbo vicinity of I'^izn-.

whon prospectors pissed over this
district, slight traces of gold wero
found, but tho scarcity of water
prevented them from continuing
Iheir search, Recently a number
nf mon devoted their time to a
search for gold, and last woek
tbey found metal in a small creek
not far from this placo. Water
was conveyed to the ground by
means of ditches and work was

SATURDAY. NOV. 28, 1891.
M.tj. LEAD.
There is no doubt that  an  increased duty on imported lead would
'ibe of some benetlt to the mining industry iu Kootonay ; but tho sum
'total of this metal used in tbe Dominion is so small t> at, as ��-c have
before remarked, the benefit wonld
lie infinitesimal.   The causes of onr
small home consumption are many,
'one being the faot thut all our gas
ipipes aid nearly all our water pipes
tire of iron, while in England they
'are made of lead    Bnt. seing that
gas in fnst being superseded by the
electric  ligbt, this will  be of little
aooBequenoe.    "Wo thoroughly en-
'dorse the remark of the Kumloops
Sentinel that our best markets ure
bn the other side of the Pncifio���
China and Japan.   It is childishness
to say that we cannot place onr lend
in those maikets ub cheap as England, seeing that we ar-:, over 5,000
miles nearer ; and freightage should
bo so much lower, instead of half as
much again.
Why not ask the Government to
snbsidize all vessels carryiug Canadian lead to those markets���say five
cents per owt,, or $1 per ton? Many
steumships which earry a few hundred tons of ballnst would profit to
the extent of two or three hundred
dollars each outward trip by utilizing
a space hitherto oooupied by useless
dead Height. It oould be easily
li-.tidied in pigs or in bar and take
ivp little room. If the seller would
Btow the lead on board at Vancouver
and have an agent at the Chinese or
Japanese port at whioh the vessel is
to discharge���and with Chinese labor this would not add much to tho
total ��� the shipowners would be
at no expense whatever, thus having
a .other inducement to oarry lead as
' '1 j j duty on imported lead- which
migiit be increased to suoh a figure
at to return a good revenue, without
bfeiug prohibiii7e���oould be devoted
to the payment of this subsidy, aud
the Goyerntent, without imposing
any additional taxation on fhe Dominion at large, wonld be fostering
an infant industry in a new province.
Onr smelters would not then be
lying idle for want of ore, unprofitable claims would develop into
mines, our lonely mountain districts
would be alive with a busy population, tbe steamship companies would
be turning an honest penny, and the
Government would be very little out
of pocket.
Our suggestion may seem absnrd
overcome by drink and hod kin
dowu on the track to sleep. Death
had been instantaneous. No blame
was attached to anyone, the driver
being a most careful an-' efiinient
mnl). Tlie deceased, whose real
name wus Jacob Ungula, lea.es a
widow und five children in Finland,
and returned here irom t> visit tu his
home only lust Juue.
Dili   Dunn's Outfit.
There appears in Harper's Magazine for November a contribution by
Jnli is Ralph, uu ler tbo nbovo title,
iu which some notable local places
and persons are mentioned, We givo
h Sow extracts :���
At R- velstoke, three hundred and
eighty miles from the Pacific Ocean,
in Uritish Columbia, a small white
.���atcnni-'o.it., built ou tUo spot, aud exposing a Blugle great paddle-wheel ai
ber stern, was waiting to make
another ot her still few trips through
a wilderness that, but for her presence, would be ns completely primitive ub almost any in North America.
Her mute lay down ihu (Jolumbia j
Kiu,i a distance of about olio hue
died and thirty miles, to a point
oallcd Sproat's Landi -g, where somo
rapids inteirupt navigation.
It sboald be remembered that British Oolumoia has been but partially
explored, and tbat bore in its very
heart only the watercourses have
been travelled, and there was neither
a settlement nor a house along the
Coluiiiuia iu thut great reach of its
valley between the United States'
border and the Canadian Poifio
Railway except at tbe landing at
which this boat stopped.
Over all the varying scene, as the
boat ploughed along, bung a mighty
silence; for aim ist tho ouly lifo
on the deep wooded sides of the
mountains was that of stealthy game.
At only uo points wero anybumau
beings lodged, and these were wood
choppers who supplied the fuel for
tbe steamer���a Ulnnamau in oue plaoe
and two ui three .link- niuj larthor
on. Iu this part of its magnificent
valley the Columbia broadens in two
long loops, cadea the Arrow Lakes,
each more thai, two miles wide and
tweuty to thirty miles in length.
Their prodigious toweiing wails are
densely wouued, and in places are
snow capped in mi-isnmmer. The
forest growth is primeval, and its
owu luxuriance crowds it beyoud
tbe edge uf luu gi'uud stream in the
fretwork of laden trunks aud bushes,
whese roots are bedded in the soft
mass oi ceuiurieb of forest debris.
Early iu me juur.ey the clerk oi
the steamer tolil me tbat wild animals were frequently seen crossing
the mer ahead of the vessel ; hears,
he said, aud deer and elk and porcupine. \\ i.cn 1 left him to go to my
state-room and dress for the rough
journey ahead oi me, he came to my
uoor, calling in ex.'ited tones lur mo
to come out on the deck "There's
a big near ahead I ' he cried, and as
he spoke 1 saw the black beau of tne
animal cleaving the quiet water
close to the nearer shore. Presently
in the eyes of some, bnt we only I Brums loot touched the bottom, and
throw it cut as an induca-eat fur ,he bounded into tne bush and disap-
someone better posted to take it up,
the chest, neek, ami limbs of a gn'n.l,
his three hundred poiiuds of weight
were so exactly his complement as
tu givo him the symmetry of an
Apollo. He was good-looking with
:he beauty of a round-faced, good-
featured bny, and his thick hair fell
in a cluster of ringlets over his fore-
bead nn i upon his nock. No Kuight
of Aimni'S circle can have been
moiv pioturi sque a figure in the
forest tli in thij "Jack," H<- was as
neat as a dandy. Ho wore high
boots and corduroy knickerbockers,
a dinicel shirt and ft snek' coal, uud
rode his big bay horse with the ease
aud grace of a Skobeleff. He
smoke.I like a fire of green bnisli,
but lm I never tasted liquor in his
lie. In a dozen years he had slept
more frequently in tho open air, upou
pebble beds or in trenches iu tho
snow, than upon ordinary bedding,
aud he exhibited, iu his graceful
movements, his sparkling eyes and
ruddy cheeks, his massive frame
nud his imperturbable good nature,
ft degree of health and vi��or thut
would seem insolent to the average
| N.'.i Yorker. Now lhat tlie railroad
wua building, he kept ever on tho
trail, along what was colled "the
right of way"���going from camp to
oainp to "jump" whiskey peddlers
and gamblers and to quell disorder���
except on pay-day, once a month,
wbi u he staved at Sproat's Landing,
The echoes of bis fearless behavior
aud lively adventures rang in evory
gathering. The generui tenor of the
stories was to the effect that be
usually gave one warning to evildoers, anil if they did not lined that
be "eleuned them out." He carri>>d
a revolvor, but never had used it.
Even when tbe most notorious gambler on the U. ti. border had crossed
over into "Jack's" bailiwick the
policeman depended upon his fists.
He had met the gambler and "advised" nun to tuke the cars next day.
The gambler, in reply, had suggested ti.at both would get along
more quitjtlr if eaoh minded his own
affairs, whereupon Kirkup had said,
"Yon hear me: take tbe cars out of
here to-morrow." The little oom��
munity (it was Don.ild, B. 0., a very
rough place at the time) held its
breathing for twenty-four hours, and
at tho approach of train-time was
on tiptou witii strained auxiety. At
twenty minutes before the hour tbe
policeman, unliable und easy-going
as ever in appearance, began a tour
of the houses. It waB iu a tavern he
found the gambler.
"You must take the train," said
"You can't make mo," replied the
Tuero were no more words. Iu
two minutes the giant was carrying
the limp body of the ruffian to a
wagon, in wbieh he drove him to the
jail. There be washed the blood off
tho gambler's face and tied his collar
and soarf. From there the couple
walked to tbe oars, where they
parted amicably.
"I had to be a littlo rough," said
Kirkup te the loungers at the station,
"because he was armed like a pin*
cushion, and I uidn't want to have
to kill him."
