The lack of a sufficient supply
of ore lias lor a  long time delayed  the  Koolonay   SmcltiiiL'
Syndicate   Irom operating thoir
Binelter hero, It in not because
there w lock of mines or ot oro
in the country, but probably ow-
intr to tbo went of capital pros-
peotors and mine owners have not
been able 11 develop their properties and the ore ih not ready
fur shipment.   The duly pn mining inncbiucry Ikih also boon  an
important factor in   hindering
mining dovcl-pinciit.   Then the
menus ot transportation aro nr
huve been very limited  and  the
rales ol carriage, especially in
mich small   quantities as mino
owners could ;jet out with their
limited capital, were and aro too
high to allow of reasonable profits
being rmiilo by mine owners, even
with high grade ores. Gradually,
but slowly,   al  this  is  being
changed ami ibo prospects  for
tho successful operating of onr
mines and reduction wori.s look
brighter. Tbo Smelling syndicate
in  this italic of the STAll give
notice that they are pn pared  to
purchase till lunik of ores, and it
something   unfoivccn   does   not
occur will sturt liio fires in tho
smeller  lurnnco in a fortnight.
This should ifire an impetus to
mining development directly, and
also   indirectly   by 'raising lbe
status  ot   the  country   in   the
financial world, ami llm attracting
of capital to at once develop the
mines in ibis district especially.
Once the mines are developed lo
any extent enel large (|iiantiiieB

the camp is not as lively as it

the want of capital, and piob-

to the high prices wanted lor

regarding tbe new strike mado there
Illecillewaet, B. C, July 6th, 1891
���A new discovery bus been mule ou
Fish Creek, between two aud three
miles from the DunvaRan, by Mo-
Hue and Woolsey. It is a contact
vein from ten to twenty feet wiiie,
between granite and lime stone.
There is two feet solid galena, three
feet carbonates und the balance is
couseilruting ore. They traced tbe
le-ttil over a mile and located four
ciaiuis which takes in 0,01)0 feet.
Assay imnle by Mr, Harvey,
Golden, gave 0-1 oz. silver, 71 oz.
lead, and a truce of gold. This is
beyond doubt the best looking pt'OB-
peet iu the camp uud there is every
reason to believe it will turn out to
be a valuable piece of property,
The owners are making arrangements to start development' work ut
The (Government with commendable promptness have decided to
build a trail to connect with tbo ono
already tuaile to the Dunvuguu, and
also build a bridge across the river.
The whole expenditure for this proposed woik will not is expected exceed ijjeOO,
Is   Attracting   Prospectors
and Land Hunters.
Mr. J. W. Thomson on Wednesday
returned from the Lardeau country
and cannot say too much in favor of
it. Thu trail into Trout lake just
completed by Mr, W. J. llankius is
an excellent piece of work be states,
nud Ihe good results from itH com-
pletiou are already apparent. More
thau a score of prospectors aro ul-
rcady working around the foolhillu
and mountains with encouraging results, That thero will bo a stam-
peelu into the Lardeau ou the completion of the trail from Kootenay
Luke to Trout Luke is almost a oer-
taiuty, as tho couutry ia now and
ouo of undoubted promise.
There are also bouio excellent
stretches of land, a quantity of
which bus been taken up und tbo
remainder is being looked after,
Mr, Thomson took up somo hind
near Trout Lake and says he will
make a toivusite of it. The fishing
on the lake is exceptionally good,
and Thomson's Trout. Like summer
resort will ho the feature of tbe ne-ur
Game ami fish are so plentiful in

Rifle Shooting', Horse Itac-
ing and Sports.
Saturday last was not a good day
for a celebration; but tho programme prepared by the Lasteuilers waa
carefully carried out despite tha
wind and rain.
The shooting matches occupied
tbe most of the day, at the ranges
near the Biding, The unpropitlous
weather prevented good scoring,
but the contest was kceu throughout
at 100 and 201) yards.
II. A. Brown carried off tho honors
of the day with a score of 40 points,
out of ii possible of 00, winning a
handsome ruautlo clock valued at
$25, Guy Barber took second ami
a mersohaum pipe worth $10, with
1)8 points; II. Bourne third, soora
32, prize gS clock; W. A. Jowett,
fourth ��5 pipe, with 29 points.
In the evening the athletic sports
were called, beiug held on tbe road
near the baseball grounds. The
track was ill a very bad state, but
this did not prevent keen competition
and a respectable crowd. The following is the list of events and tho
successful competitors,

A tug of war betweeu a team of

An inipo'-tant movement is im

the abolition of trial by jury.
This form of trial has never been
much ot an obstruction iu the
way of despotic government, as
an fti'Quitled person, who in tlio
