Arrowhead. B.C. June 3—(Special; A steady and increasing flow of gas was struck last evening by Hall
Bros, on their ranch. Under 14 fett of blue clay was found a bed of sand relet sing the gas with a rushing
sound. Men working in the excavation had to be dr„\\n up instantly with a rope. During the night the
gas was heard as if toiling through water in the tottcm of the hole.
The ho'.e was roughly capped with an oak barrel packed around with blue clay. A 3-8 pipe stuck in
the barrel lit like a jet and burned 20_ inches high all night, and was still burning at 9 a.m. today. All
around the loose capping the gas was also forcing its way and could be lit anywhere.

Four Men in  One Cell-Jury
Recommends Construction
ot Chapel
In its presentment at the Kamloops
assizes the grand jury criticised the
condition of the provincial jail there,
to which prisoners from Revelstoke
arc frequently sent. Its report was
as follows:
We, the member ol" the grand jury
at this court of assize, in concluding
our duties, address Your Lordship in
accordance with ancient established
In the firsl place we wish to say
that while the duties which fell- to us
were more onerous than we would
have liked them to be, on account of
the fair name of this city and the
whole province, yet we are glad to be
able to mark one gratifying feature
of the cases which have come before
us, and that is the almost total absence of cases of "rolling" and holdups."
We have visited the different public
institutions in  the city and district,
and have the following recommendations to make concerning them:
Provincial Gaol.
The provincial jail we found very
much overcrowded, in some instances
four men occupying one cell with only
two single cots to sleep on. And we
would urge upon the government the
necessity for the early construction of
a new building. We would also recommend thnt  some temporary building
ere :te I for the use of the prisoners
as a reading room, and for the holding of Divine services \-.hich nre now
held in a corridor that is very poorly
lighted and has not sufficient space
for Seeats, Sai itary arrangements alsi
require attention; the basins and
toilets being unlit for use.
Tranquille Sanitorium.
The Tranquille Sanatorium we
found in excellent condition, bul i*. is
bIso in need of being enlarged for tin
accommodation of patients, and we
would BUggest that the government
take over the institution, as the farm
in connection would materially reduce
the cost of maintenance, and also be
better   for   the   prisoners   than   being
■hut up in an over-crowded jail,
(lid .Men's Home.
At the provincial home we found
the rn■". portion in splendid condition,
but would urge upon the government
the necessity for the early completion
of lii'' remainder Of the new building.
as the sanitary arrangements al present are bad, and the old men do not
get the necessary attention.
At the i.'".'i.! inland Hospital we
found the work being carried on efficiently under aide management.
The city schols we find arc deserv
ing of all commendation, the buildings
modern and convenient, excepting the
lavatorial in the public school which
are entirely inadequate and obsolete,
and should be remedied at once. We
also found the ventilation in both the
public and high schools to be defective in operation.
We would also point out. tin Insufficiency of accommodation at the court
■. both for the public and nece
sary attendants; and the lighting of
th in room, which is very bad indeed.
We   :■    e  ■   that   Your   Lordship
may be pleased to lay these sugges-
bl      " the proper authorities.

Tells of Riches of Trout Lake
District—Mines Full
of Rich Ore
It is good news to learn that a dc
finite discovery of tin bus been made
in the Litrdeuu district of British Columbia, writes E. A. Huggen. Hith-
• rto the indications of thc metal
have been limited to the small quantities found in assays of ore from
the Payue mine in the Slocuii, and
in thc sings of the Trail smelter,
probably derived from the Slocan ores. The geological survey of
Canada is authority for the new dls-
COVery, which was due to the dilli-
culty of recognizing a piece of lloat
found in Fish river valley, north of
Camborne. The sample was supposed
to be wolfram, a tungstate of iron
and manganese,  but  owing to the un-
eitainty about it the sample was
sent to tbe geological survey for
Identification. Here it wus found to
bean excellent sample of tinstone, or
Cassltorlte, which, when pure, contains Tst; per rent metallic tin. On
lhe discoverers being advised of this
tbey set out to prospect the locality,
and it iB stated they were successful
in locating the ore in place. The locality is understood to be Goat
Mountain, where some Cranbrook
men hold claims carrying some high
values in gold as well as other minerals. Some years ago shipments o£
:re carrying phenomenally high gold
. nd silver values were made by a
Rossland company from this locality
The formation     is a contact of lime
.nd granite, and therefore a likely
place to find tin ore. For many
years it has been believed by mining
men tbat tin would one day be found
in Uritish Columbia, as conditions
for its occurrence are favorable. Tin
occurs In the l'nited States to the
south, and in Alaska to tbe north.
Samples oi stream tin were brought
In la'st fall from Dense river, in Cas-
-i.ir. and it is likely that section will
be prospected With a view to finding
the source of the mineral. In th»
nineties there was u tin boom at Rev-
lstoke on a report that the mineral
lad heen located on Isaac creek, and
the late Jim Wardner hurried into
tbat district witb a view to organizing 8 company t" we.rk the supposed
deposit. Further Investigation proved the report to be without foundation, Borne other mineral having been
nistaken for tin.
Tbe mineral resources of the Trout
lake mining division ale attracting
attention and deservedly so. There
are several promising prospects there
and some mines have been important
shippers. The Silver Cup, formerly
operated by a London company with
which Mr. Horne-1'nyne was connected, shipped ore to the value of
aver 81,000.000. There was a ' continuous shoot proved up from the
surface to below the 100 ft. level.
This Bhoot carried ore of high grade
due to its grey copper, which assayed
eis much ns 1200 ounces in silver and
$2n in gold. The average value was
probably  about 200  ounces in silver,
1.0 ounces gold, and 25 percent lead.
The ore was penalized ut the smelter
n account of its high zinc content,
about 2'- per cent. This mine was
operated continuously from about
IS'.K>- till now, but its most productive
period terminated with the working
cut of tbe original shoot about 1901,
During the past eight years the ore
discoveries have been limited to small
pockets. For some time now the
mine has been worked on lease. Witb
the high-grade shipping ore, a large
tonnage of second class ore %as
mined but was of too low grade to
ship to the smelter. The value aver-
Jiged about $15 a ton, tbe gold being
associated with the tctrahedrite. To
work the old dumps a stamp mill and
chlorinatlon plant were installed on
the advice of the English consulting
fngineer, and about $100,000 was expended on this work and on the construction of tramways. The plant
did not work successfully and, instead of values being saved, the finely
■crushed tetrnhedrite can be found in
the gravels of the Lardeau river between tbe 011 at Five Mile and Trout
Lake City. Along with the tetra -
ledrite is found the mercury used in
amalgamation in the fine globules.
This property also owned by the
Ferguson Mines Limited, formerly
Operating the Silver Cup, shipped a
considerable tonnage of high grade
ore about 1890-1902. The gold values
were not so good as in the Silver Cup
hut the silver values were ns high
and thc mirvc made a small fortune
for thc shareholders of the original
company on the property, being sold
to an ESnglllh company. The eon
centrating ore wns shipped to the mill
already referred to, but no better success attended Its treatment than the
me of the Silver Cup, and the mine
has  not  been   worked  to tiny extent
sinye 1905. When the writer last saw
this mine there was still a shoot of
ore extending downwaid from the
lowest level so that the mine could
not be said to be exhausted. The ore
shoot from which thc shipments were
made occurred where thc vein crossed
a fissure In a large bed of quartzite
which traverses the country.
Since then another claim of thc
Nettie L group, named the Ajax, has
turned out well. When the Nettie L.
was originally worked there was a
strong gossan showing on the Ajax
vein and the engineers believed it
was without, doubt connected with an
ore Bhoot. They ran an incline tunnel on it but failed to develop ore and
abandoned tbe work. Their theory
was subsequently proved to be cor -
leet, for some leasers resumed work
on thc incline and it is reported that
the lirst round of shots put in by
them disclosed the ore shoot, from
which the leusers shipped considerable ore. F.C. Merry, eiiining engineer, who was operating the Silver Cup
in thc interests of the bondholders,
subsequently moved his force from
the Silver Cup to the Ajnx, leasing
the former property. During thc past
winter he tins had a force of about lo
men steadily at work on  the Ajax.
On Silver Cup mountain are several
interesting properties. The Triune,
row idle, made big money for its
former owners, who shipped a con ■
siderahle tonnage of rich ore. It is a
difficulty property to work in winter,
I eing on a steep mountain side, under
a glacier and transportation is difficult, an aerial tramway trected by
a Minneapolis company, having been
swept away by Bnowslides.
Above the Triune is thc Cromwell,
a property which has shipped ore
running high in gold values. It is
looked upon as the making of a mine,
I ut is located on a steep mountain ■
side, swept by snowslides and difficult to work. The vein has a low
angle of dip.   It is stated work is to
be resumed on the Cromwell.
Further west is the Winslow on
which considerable work has been
done and which is regarded as a promising gold property. It is owned by
Mr. Bruce Wnite.

Enormous gains bave lately been
made in the amount of gold handled
by the Vancouver government assay
office. For the tirst ten days of May
7,000 ounces of gold dl'st were cashed at a value of $112,000. Tbis was
seven times the business done a year
ago. The shipments were large in
number, none excessively large in
comparison, but coming from many
different places in the Yukon, Kootenay and Cariboo.
The crew of the Dtica has been reduced to seven men, this step having

the mine running low. A large
quantity was laid in late last full,

830,000,000 or taking the average of
the past two years ia about 831,000,-

my opinion be agriculture and manufactories." Mr, Buchan Is a man of

failure to tell the truth about thc

Tbe best soourlty on earth Is tho earth Itself, and land le tho basis or all wealth, Owners of productive Ian its
are benefiting by the Increasing high eost of living, while others arc mi Mi-ring from it.

Vou will not be required to leave yonr present surroundings now. All
we ask of those to whom we grant tracts iH that they plant, or arrange to
have planted, a crop of one'of the above-mentioned product* within three
years, after which we will hare it operated (harfested and replanted) for
grantees, in consideration of _;■ per cent, of the net profits derived from
the sale of tho crops, thereby allowing the grantee to pursue his or ber
present occupation until such time an they determine just what tho yield
of their acres amounts to. Consider what this may moan an a source ol
Income, when statistics 1I10W that thn yield of olio aero of celery amount-
0(1 to 81,288.45, and that wue acre of well-cared for paper-shell pecans, in
full bearing should net its owner as high as ■J'.OO.OO per year. We
are of the opinion thai after it is proven by -totual resulty obtained in
operating tho land tbat they will need no further Urging, and waste
time in locating in this land of plenty. We also require grantees to occupy
the land within ten years, or sell i- to someone who will occupy it; otherwise it reverts back to tbe grantor.
The land Included in this opening is located directly on anil adjoining
tlie Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Railroad) about 26 miles west of
Brunswick, a thriving City ol fifteen thousand, and having direct cteatu-
ship service to New York and Boston, and excellent railroad transportation facilities to all points, '['be average temperature for six months of
the year, from April to October, is 77 degrees; the climate is most healthful, and invigorating, and there is an ample rainfall of .".0 inches per year.
As we aro extremely desirous of having settlers locate on tins property and assist in its development, anil thereby greatly increase the
value of surrounding ami intervening property, which we will hold, antl to
increase the tratlic along the Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Kailroad,
and thUB facilitate the service, we feel warranted in grant ing these tracts
to those who register with us. Wo also have in mind business and residence plots which we will offer for sale after the opening, but which will
not be included in it- We have "money-mailing afterward" considerations in this liberal-minded opening, sinilar to those of tho NorflT
them Pacific and other railroads when they granted their lands, and we
COLORADO Bl 11,1)1
expect to h»netlt thereby, ai well as the ones who will receive the tracts
We have also planned to develop what is designed to be the best
equipped, most up-to-date, scientific,commercial farm and orchard in et
Istence. It will consist of six thousand acres and will be included in tbis
opening. All who register and receive tracts will get the benefit of tne
experiment!and scientific methods in rogue thereon* While w« *re ar
ranging to prevontover-registraticn, we will avoid many disappointment*.

With thc ever-increasing population of thia country there
ia no corresponding incroase in the area of land, and n&tnx-
