Nelson, British Columbia. Sunday, September 24,  1899.
|Tenth Year
H. F. Parker of Nelson is
Now in the City Jail.
Chief of Police Jarvis Served the Warrant
Coon Hint   Last Sight at
Hotel Waverly.
H. F. Parker, a young man of this
oity, was arrested last night at 10
o'clock bj Chief of Police Jarvis at the
Hotel Waverly, charged with the crime
nf embezzlement in the sum of (66, on
a warrant issued at the instance of the
management of the Parsons Produce
Parker is a young Englishman of
good family, and hails fiom Winnipeg,
where he has been employed in the
offices of the main branch of the Parsons Produce Company. Some four
months ago Parker was sent to Nelson
by the firm to occupy the position of
bookkeeper and aoconntnnt in their
house at this place, and has held the
position until yesterday morning,
when he was discharged by tho iirm.
it is said that for some time past
Parker has been spending money quite
freely and visiting questionable remits, where he managed to lis relieved
of considerable sums of money; far
more than a young man occupying his
position could afford.
For the past two or three days Parker has bean shadowed, so that any
attempt on his part to leave the Oity
could promptly he tnw it. The warrant was served last night, as stated
above, for fear (hat when morning
came he would have left the City.

Tribune. If i�� was the argument of a
repentant miue-worker, aud the wage
for miners was induced accordingly,
then might I believe iu the repentance
apparently confessed m the argument.
If eight hours' application will produce
the result that ten hours has heretofore
produced, a reduction of the wage paid
would enable the repentant "soldier"
to even up the one-sided score that he
hns been so long piling up between tho
mine owner and himself, and in that
event it would he no hard matter,
after the practical demonstration of
this shaky theory to prevail upon the
mine owner to pay rlie same price he
haB been paying for the same amount
of work that has been done.
It's a queer argument, and one that
would seeme to me to be a losing ono.
The protestations of such au arrant
sinner would most certainly be taken
with a grain of suspicion. Only by
long-continued effort could ho hope to
prove his honestv of purpose.
Amine ow.iet lately told me that
there is not a tree in tho vicinity of
his property bit, that tho miners working on his property havo played cards
under it during working hours. If
the argument mentioned above originated with tbe miners, it must have
started witb tho workers at that mine.
Domagogio as ever in principle, The
Tribune continues to pull the wool
over the eyes of its whilom friends,
the laboring men, and to endeavor to
convince them that it is only a question of a few days when the mine owners will concede the demand of the
miners. The editor of The Tribune
knows well���no one better���that the
opposite is the ease. The editor of the
Tribune argues that the mine owners
have los* no money through tho closing of their mines, as tbe mineral yet
remains therein. That is his own peculiar, brilliant argument. Yet he has
not attempted to show that the miner
has lost nothing by his enforced idleness, as his (the miner's) unexpended
energy remains stored up within his
(the miner's) brawny frame���and the
letter argument is as weighty as is the
former or greatest thought of the editor of The Tribune. Therefore, if the
miner who allows Tbe Tribune to do
his thinking will but do some thought-
work for himself, it seems to me that
he will he able to convince himself by
the arguments of his organ, The Tribune that the outlook is dismal for
the winner. With the mine owner,
with money in the bank, and by not
working his mine, losing nothing for
the reason that the "ore is still in tho
ground,'' and with the miner fast
spending bis modest savings ill board
bills, or forced to flee to the honest
fields of the United Stites and work
fourteen hours a day for wages less
than be asks for eight hours work in
this country, in order to obtain funds
ui continue the tight for what his
demagogic leaders have stated to bo
"principle," it stems to me that for
his hard-earned "principle" the miner
is patronizing a shop where they turn
out as poor an article of principle as
they do of argument.
The right of the mine owners is not
nearlv finished. It line only begun. It
will bo continued until the obnoxious
law is icpoaled and prosperity once

hie fact. JUSTICE

Military Experts Say Ministers Have Been too Optimistic,
and Kruger Can Reach Natal Before the British Garrison is Ready to Defend.
London, Sept. 28.���Never at any
stage of the Transvaal crisis, lias the
peace or war rested so entirely in the
hands of President Kruger. The longer
he delays his decision, tbe better are
tho chances for peace. He knows to
what extent he can rely on sections of
South Africa to uphold him. He realizes that the British will, if possible,
avoid a conflict until the last transport
lands her men, and he is too wilv a
leader not to know the military advantages that comes to tbe aggrssor. His
appeals to the foreign powers to intervene have, apparently, been hope-1 tempts and making
less, but his efforts to drag the Orange '
Editor of The Miner:
I have been readiug The Miner, Tribune and the papers of the Slocan district in the attempt to arrive at a better understanding of the merits and
demerits of tho "Eight-Hour Law,'1
the provisions of which aro responsible
for the paralysed conditions that prevail in business circles in West Kooto
nay, and tbe only argument so far presented by friends of tbe law seems to
nio to be the one so gonerally present
ed and so persistently urged by the
Tribune, that the miner wil! "do as
mnoh work in eight hours as he did in
ton hours,'' provided he is paid an extra price to oxert himself.
It seems to mo that a oause is weak,
that resorts to argument of that nature.
It is nothing more nor less than an
admission on tbe part of the areat
body of mine workers, that under tho
ten honr conditions, they did au honest eight hours' work and killed time
during the remaining two hours, thns
lobbing their employers of one-fifth of
the amount of wages drawn, which in
tho nggegato would certainly amount
to a great sum of money; and now,
ashamed of longer keeping np the deception, they have appealed to the Legislature to enact a law thnt will compel them to be honest with tho mine
Owners, and at the same time draw as
much wages as they did before the
new law was unnoted.
That is an argument that is possibly
worthy of Tho Tribune, but that is
most certainly not worthy of tho honest laboring man, and I do not believe
the argument originated  outside  Tho
Seattle, Wash., Sent. 2)1.���Clime D.
Hill has arrived hero from Yakutat
Bay, the section most violently disturbed by tiio earthquakes of Sunday,
Sopt. Ilrd and 10th. Of the terrible
vision and what he experienced during it young Hill said:
"We were all asleop in tho Missiou
when a shock oame that made the one
of the week before pale into insignificance. It was shorter than the former
one, and from the Bauie direction, but
we only noted the difference by watching the swaying of the swinging
lamp. A tremor would start almost
due north and south, and was working
its way around until the lamp was
swinging almost due west to uast.
"The bay itself was fall of whirlpools that wen whirling treeB. timber
and dritwood around ami around so
swift that the eye could hardly follow
them. Just across from Yakutat bay
is the island of Kokanak. On the shore
of tbis island was situated an old Indian graveyard. It was out on a point,
and we suddenly noticed that the point,
graveyard ami all, had disappeared,
sunk ont of sight."
Free State, however, have been sno-
cesful, and if he intends to defy Great
Britaiu he will never have a better
opportunity than at present. It is snob
reason which is uppermost in the
minds of the thinking British, pornipt
them to fear that before the next
week's Cabinet meeting, the Boers
will hnve passed over Natal border. If
thoy have not there will be much
ground for believing President Kruger
intends an ultimate backdown, though
when he is strong enough to carry his
people with him in such a course, is
open t  gravi donhto.
The Cabinet Council merely verified
the logical supposition that Great
Britain will issue no hostile ultimatum
until she is in a position to back it no.
The reoent negotiations upon the part
of the Colonial Secretary have rot
tended to appease the peace party in
England. The Speaker declares "To
fight over a question of etymology is,
naturally, impossible," by which the
paper refers to suzerainty being tbe
whole base of the dispute.
Sir Edward Clarke, Q. 0 . the former Solioitor General, writes to tbe
Times that he sees no ".-isiis belli and
I ������-������������ parliameui will be srminioned
Ural the whofc a'V.ih may bi explained
to biiu atn\ other Conservatives.
V. 1 Stead, Mr. Olnvmberlain's bitter opponent, is bringing out a pamphlet entitled, "Shall I Slay My
Brother Boer���An Appeal to the Con-
siieni-e of Great Britain," in which
he reiterates hia accusal ion of Mr.
Chamberlain's complicity iu the
Rhodesian conspiracy of 1895, and declares that "war would be a stain on
Great Britain's esootoheon, as foul as
that by which tho Dreyfus all air had
sullied the fair unice of France."
Tho Transvaal negotiations are so
long drawn out that though the papers
devote great space to them, popnlur interest seems flagging. The Government organs, while regretting the attitude of the Orange Free State, point
out that its open hostility will eventually prove advantageous iu ridding
Great Britain of the annoyance of having a presumably neutral, but really
hostile, power so oloso to the scene of
action, and enabling Great Britain to
add th9 Free State without encountering foreign protests or accusations of
inhuman aggrandisement.
war in the Transvaal is regarded here
as a question of u few days, or at most
of weeks. The whole press devotes
considerable space to the matter. Nei-
tfnr the attitude of tho people or press
has changed materially. Without any
exception they disapprove of a war,
and they blame Great Britain for
badgering the Transvaal beyond endurance. The Liberal pross also blame
the Transvaal for its illogical stand in
first sanctioning Great Britain's attempts at interference iu its internal
affairs, and then in rejecting such at-
thereof a casus
belli. The National Zeitung doubts
whether it is still possible to adjust
things in South Africa except by force
of arms. A foreign official Biid to a
correspondent of the Associated Press:
"Of course it iB not to our interests
to have England and the Transvaal go
to war. That little Boer nation ,vill
finally succumb, and probably will be
wiped out of existence It is only too
likely that this will diminish our prestige in South Afrioa, and injure our
no inconsiderable interest there, for
our trade with the Boer states is increasing, and is only next to that of
England. Still, there is no occasion
and no political or material right for
us to interfere. So long as our undoubted rights are rospected by tho
belligerents, we shall not interfere."
The informant of the corespondent
refused to say whether it was a distinct formal or disformal understanding with Great Britain or agreement
of a year ago that Germany remain
neutral in the event of war with the

London, Sept. 28.���The Statist, commenting on the position brought about
by the Transvaal crisis aud the New
York stringency, says:
"The competition for gold during
the next week promises to be great.
No gold is available irr Australia for
export, aud we may have to send gold
to the Cape iustead of receiving it,and
also meet tbe demand for Egypt,to pay
for cotton, as well as South America.
Tbe nsuul autumnal decrease will further advanoe tbe official minimum. It
appears nearly probable that our Government will require lo rase a considerable In hi, probably by the issue of
treasury bills. Such a loan would, of
ooorso, give the Bank of England control of the market, enabling it to keep
its rate effcoti��e, whatever it might
prefer a stiong coalition Government
to settle various issues that it will be
very difficult fot a party Government
to undertake. 1 have personally kept
aloof from party politics, all my time
being occupied in looking after the interests ot those connected witb mo in
mining enterprises.''
London, Sept. 211.���The discovery
under the nave of an old church at
Peun, Buckinghamshire, of a coffin
bearing the name William Penn,caused
the circulation of a report that it contained the body of the founder of
Pennsylvania, buried there, according
to several English papers, in 1688, or
eighty years prior to his decease. It
is probably one of tho Peun ancestors.
New York, Sent. 28. -The London
correspondent of the Tribune cables the
following regarding Friday's Cabinet
"No retreat, no provocation, but
more troops to the front.''
That is o Orief summary of today's
Cabinet meerlng, Tho continuance of
negotiations with the Transvaal on
former lines is not considered desirable, and a fresh start will be made us ���
soon as the Ministers have leisure for a
deliberate review of the whole situation. Meanwhi.e the military force
in South Africa will be increased by
10,000 or 20,000 men. The Transvaal
Government will be courteously informed by the Ministers that it is time
for reconsidering the subject of England's relations with tho Dutch republic, and the door will not be olosed
against diplomacy,if President Krnger
wishes to make fresh overtures. The
ministersare determiued not to provoke
a declaration of war, and especially
when thoy are not in readiness for hostilities, but they will not not modify
the terms of the last communication
sent out by Mr. Chamberlain. The
groat stir of military preparations
prevailing at army headquarters today
betokens the despatch of large reinforcements to the Cape and Natal. Tbe
drift of nffairs this week has been
Btrongly in the direction of war, although no one in authority is yet willing to admit thnt the last word has
been said in favor of peace. Military
experts complain that tho Ministers
have been too optimistic, and that
Krnger now has a chance of striking
Natal before the British garrison is
prepared ��o defend tbe frontier adequately.
Nelson   Is   So  Described   by   Eastern
Canadian   Press.
The Cornwall Freeholder, whose
representative, Mr. C. W. Young, was
of the party of The Canadian Press
Association who visited British Co
lumbia during last month, in speaking
of Nelson in its issue of Sept. 8th,says
"It was dark when we pulled into
Nelson and found the pleasautest re
caption, as it was also the last, of the
trip, awaiting ua When the stain of
travel had been removed, we made our
way to the pretty little opera house
where we enjoyed a banquet, not the
least pleasurable feature of which was
the presentation to every member of
the party of a small cabinet containing
samples of ore from the leading mines
���Silver King, Starlight, Dandy, Mot-
lie Gibson, Granite, Poorman, Athabasca and Exchequer. These samples
fairly represent tbe different ores mined in the vicinity, and are a valuable
souvenir. To the ladies was also given
a souvenir spoon each, with a Nelson
scene ou the bowl.''
Not content with Bbowering such
kind words upon the Oity, the Freeholder of the 15th Inst.,again speaks of
"During this trip we rau across
seveial places where loonl feeling rau
high. Not to speak of Toronto and
Hamilton, our first experience was at
Port Arthur, where we found the oiti-
zens of that enterprising town and
those of its next door neighbor, Fort
William, not disposed to play in the
same yard or slide down the same cellar door to any extent; though for the
nouoe, iu welcoming their" guests they
let down the bars for a short spell. At
Rat Portage we were conscious of a
somewhat similar undercurrent, as regards Keewatin ; citizens of Brandon
and Rat Portage passed eaoh other as
strangers, and again at Vancouver and
Victoria jealous mutterings were
heard. Rossland looks down ou Nelson and Nelson returns tbe comuliment
witb interest. The city in the clouds
prides itself on its recent emergement
from the woods and the enormous
strides it has made in a couple of years
���taking credit, as it has good cause to
do, for chiselling smooth streets out of
the solid rock, and similar almost superhuman feats. Nelson, on the contrary, assumes a superior position���it
is no ohild of yesterday, but owns up
to n green old age of ten yens. No
mere giddy, wide-open mining camp
and congeries of shncKS is it like its
wild and woolls neighbor, but a place
where speculation has turned into certainty, where people have come wit)
Hie intention of remaining and have
built oi.io themselves handsome dwellings ami Burrounded them with fieen
lawns and beautifnl gardens. The
Kootenay river, which flows by Nelson
streets, is clear anil bright, even after
the weeks of heavy rain, and lovers of
sport can find anything tl ey like iu
that line within a very short distance.
Nelson is the Queen of the Kootenays,
and knows it.''
But One Hour in Coming to
the Conclusion.
He Receives an Ovation at His Hotel.���
The Cheering Continues For
Several Minutes.
Coburg, Out., Sept. 28.~Wm. Hamilton Ponton was declared innocent of
complicity in tbe robbery of the Dominion Bank at Napauee by the jury
this morning. Twelve men occupied
but one hour in coming to tbe verdict,
and when they filed into court shortly
before 1 o'olock and rendered their
vordijt of not guilty, a great shout
went up. and the cheering was continued for several minutes, while a
general rush was made for the dojk.
The sheriff shouted for order, but
scarcely auyoue paid any attention to
him. Ponton's mother, who sat in
front of the dock, jumped to her feet
and he caught her in his arms and
kissed her repeatedly. Then Mr. Gus
Porter, his counsel, walked aronnd the
table and shook hands with both.
When Ponton reached the street, he
was again cheered, and he received au
ovation at his hotel, the Dunham
E. P. Osier's address upou behalf of
the Crown was a masterly effort, but
was very briof. His argument was
that a convincing case had been made
outside of the evidence of the accomplices, Roach and Holden.
His Lordship's oharge was also brief,
and, if anything, was slightly against
the prisoner. Pare was sentenced to
three vears and Holden to four years.
Roach was then arraigned. Ho pleaded
guilty, and was allowed to go on suspended sentence. Osier said had Roach
unen tried he could not have beeu convicted.

London, Sept. 28. ���Dreyfus and Guo-

public mind here, hut echoes of tbe

Euglish weeklies. Exconting these
topics and the Transvaal, there is a

Berlin, Sept. 28.���An interesting
outcome ot the Dreyfus case is tho fact
that the Emperor, who has beeu deeply

Rennes of the espionago system between France and Germany, of tho
extent aud elaborateness of which he
has heretofore been ignorant, has instructed General Van Hahake, Chief
of his private Military Cabinet, to
thoroughly investigate anl to what extent the system can be sboliBhed or reduced to a minimum. The correspondent of the Associated i ress learns reliably that His Majesty, above all, was
startled by the fact that the military
attaohes of both countries, while personally men of the nicest sense of honor, have been bo deeply inovlved in the

located claims in the diistrict. It is
within an hours' walk of the end of

a showing of ore as any of them. The

to the Beatrice, aud the ore shows very
nearly the same characteristics and is,
if anything, more plentiful.

This is taken from The Victoria Ool-
"The Vuncouver World refert to a
matter in conneotiou with the Minister of Finance,which is nllegeil to have
ocourred at Port Colliugs, Colorado,
some time ago. The matter is a very
serious our. and we think The World,
in justice to itseli and fcho public as
well as to Mr.Cotton, ought I" publish
all it knows about it. If,as 'I he World
alleges, Mr. Gotten was mixed up in a
transaction at Port Collings which will
not bear the light of day, the people
of this Province ought to know if. if
the transaction, whatever 11 was, is
one that will stand investigation with-
ont reflecting in any way upon Mr,
Cottnn's testation, it is fair to tho
Province,'whose funds ure in Mr. Cotton's custody, and also to Mr Cotton
himself, that this fact should be made
known. It is said thai the whole mat-
ter has been fully written np in u Denver newspaper. Will Tin' News-Advertiser tell the public if this is the case?
Until this has been cleared np, and
until Mr. Martin's charge of di liberate
falsification of the records of the Executive Council has either been disproved or satisfactorily explained, there
will natnrally he a great dtnl of uneasiness that Mr Ootton should n main
in the position he now ooonpies.
There is not the least room for doubt
that very serious matters havo been
publicly stateil to Mr.Cotton's discredit. They certainly call for explanation, "
The reference in this paragraph is
no doubt to tho old Bcandal about

bring home for use in his attack on

for eight hours' work, there is no deli

A fuvorite iivi'i'sion with some of
the Eight-Hour advooates is to lacerate
the feelings of the Slocan managers by
telling them thnt the mines elsewhere
are in full blivst, ami then mildly insinuating what fools they are to remain
out in the oold. While their mines
: e olosed it is Baid, thousands of min���
.���rs are given all the work tbey cbii do
in tbe Boundary oountry. By one authority the number employed is 3,290,
who earn in monthly wages 8315,000.
This is supposed to harrow up the souls
,if the Slooan managers and drive them
to the verge of suioide. But the managers know better. So does The
Midway Advance, whose attention has
been drawn to the figures, 3,290 men
and a pay roll of $315,000. It is iu a
position to know something of tbe situation, and ii says: " It is. 111 our

The Unions will not permit a miner
to work on n contract in the S'ooan,
although receiving their own scale
83.60 per day of eight hours. That is
tryanny, and tbe miner who submits
to it estimates his own personal liberty rather obeaply, The wisest thing
the miners can do is to cut loose from
the Unions and Inld themselves free
to do as thoy please. Among Anglo-
Saxons that is thought to be better
than voluntary slavery.

The Citv, on the wlioln, is vary
lir-nlthv. This was gathered yesterday
hy n Miner reporter, who mmUi it his
especial business to fin I out whether it
���wil* or not. In the Kootenay Luke
General Hospital thore am at present
fourteen patients, Half of them urn
tvpboid and tbe other half miscellaneous casus. It is only by the number of
typhoid cases that the city's health can
be judged, aw the other ilismises might
befall the natives any time, miller any
nonrtitions and in any kind of weather.
Of fie seven typhoid patients at the
general hospital, two are from the outsell] having been sent in from 0011-
tnictiuii gangs, iiiul it may lio taken
for (limited thnt their illness is due to
tho fact that thoy drank surface water,

in   so-oalled   springs.    The   other five
cases are from the Oity.
The Misses Oriokeuiay have three typhoid patients, all local cases,and have
Ii id but Hix during the fall. When
seou by The Minor representative yesterday, they stated that this summer
was incomparably ahead of the last
from a health Btandopint. Tbe hospital
was filled up last fall, but principally
by eases sent in from the Crow's Nest
Puss and other lines under eonslrnn-
tiuii. But there were more local eases
last year   than   this.
Several dootors were interviewed by
The Miner yesterday, and while some
of them were more optimistic than
others, the concensus of opinion was
that the health of the City was much
hotter than it has ever been before.
Dr. La Ban stated that there is less
sickness in the City this summer than
ever before. There is not much typhoid considering the population. The
local cases cmld he traced to tho pi notice of some people of drinking from
stroams and springs Dr. La Ban is
the City's modieal health officer and
his advice to the public is to drink
only City water. The surface water is
foil of bacteria, and he said that some
of his oases were directly attributable
to the water in streams and springs.
He had made several examinations of
the City water, and had never found
any living bacteria in it. The city
water, he found, whs purer than that
supplied by any city in British Columbia. It is drawn from u source above
where there has been habitation to
pollute it. He Btrongly advised all
householders to connect with the Oity
iniiins and use only (ho City water. As
the sanitary arrangements of the Oity
improved, the sinkness would become
less and less each year.and would show
a decreasing number of typhoid cases.
I.r. Porin said that there was no
reason why Nelson should not sum
day he 11 great health resort. It is a
remarkably healthy town, and it is g i-
iiia to improve. The citizens must assist the City in carrying out the system of sanitation, This year showed

I     MINING NEWS,     t
++��+.+������������������������.������..��������������������� t����������������������
A new and imporrtant strike has
been made ou the Bornite Bank property, situate four and one-half nilen
south of Nelson on Morning Mountain.
Mr J R. Cranston, who nt present i^
managing the property for a Toronto
and a Rowland, syndicate, was in the
City last evening. In speaking of the.
properly to a representative of The
Miimr. said:
"There i-i ronsiderable development
done at the Bornitr- Banlr. anil it all
shows up good oie, but in the past few
day.-. 1 have uncovered what I think
to be lhe heat body of ore that has yet
beeu discovered on the Bornite Hunk
group. I started four men to work on
a new plnee on tbe ledge and at a
depth of ten feet, where we are now,
have encountered a solid body of high
grade shippinn on rive feet thick. A
sample of this ore lias beeu seut to the
Scokane Exposition and another sample of it can be Been in the show window of the Nelson Hardware Company's store. All of the veins on this
group carry good values. In my opinion, 011 Morning .Mountain is a good
ulaee to own property. I think time
is 110 better plaee, anywhere in the
Provinoe." Mr. Cranston is u well
informed, practioal mining man, and
his judgment is certainly of great
It can be positively stated that Mr.
O F. Riehel and his associates have
bonded the Wisconsin and Lucky
Strike claims, belonging to the Hen-
nessy Bros., and located at Sixteen
Mile Creek. Though Mr. Riebel does
not desire the amount of the bond
known at present, it can stated that
the consideration is a vahi'ible one.
The bond is for one venr. Mr. Riebnl
has. already.a force of fourteen men
working on the trail to tlie mine, over
which he will take the machinery aud
supplies for the winter's work on this
property. It is within the possibilities
The Miner will, in the near future, be
enabled to announce the installment of
a compressor on  this property.
It is understood the Mackintosh syn-
d icate did not make the second payment of the famous Red Dine Croup.
It appears that Fete Larson, who owns
a one-fifth interest in the group, refused to sign the original bond last winter, in favor of Collett , Starbird and
Robiuson for $50,000. Last sprirng
Collett, .Starbird and Robinson rehond-
ed the property to tho Mackintosh
Syndicate for $100,000. Larson also
refused to sign tbis bond, therefore
they could only give a title to a four-
fifths interest in the property. So this
is probably the reason that Mr. Mackintosh did not take up the property.
It appears that Messrs. Colien, Star-
bird and Robinson restaked a fraction
situated between the Red Line and
White Elephant groups, called the Red
Dine Fraction owned ny V. N. Taylor,
C E., on the grounds that he, Taylor,
used monuments instead of posts.it being above timber line, and that whoever took over the Red Line group
would need tbis fraction,and that thev
asked an unusually large figure for the
ground So, taking everything into
consideration, the Mackintosh Syndicate have pood grounds for not taking
up the bond under the enisting conditions.
Joe Leonard and partners have located a group of claims situated on
Number 2 Creek. On ono claim they
have a showing of 4 feet of solid galena, ami on another they have a showing of 10 feet of copper. Leonard was
accompanied by two Indians.
Arrangements are now being made
for putting in a winter camp at the
Dividend group, Law Oreek, by tlie
Fraser & Chalmers syndicate.
Messrs. Wbittier anil Miller, of the
Trail sniil'tr, lirrivuloii the 18th in-
siant ant left tne followin morning for
Law Creek.

the extreme northwest end of Laki
Windermere, and commands a gooil
situation, and is sit ated on the line of
the proposed railroad from tlie Crow's
Nest through Toby Creek valley to
connect witn the Arrowhead branch of
the C. P. R. via Lardo Duncan and
Trout Lake. The townsite was purchased by Fred Mulhulland, formerly
of Rossland, B. O., from E. T. Johnston.
Fred Wesl is developing the. Silver
Star group, on Horse Thief Creek
The original owners of the famous
Red Line group are Fete Larson, Wellington Kinnee, William Taynton, 0.
A,  Watt,  Ben Abel and Ceo. Scott.
J. R. McDend baH uuenvered an immense  showing  of    galena  on    the
Eipiitablu group,  Boulder Creek.
Tbe Black Prince copper claim, recently bonded by the Hnll Mines for
111,000, could uo't be bonded today for
four times the amount, The property
is situated on Boulder Creek. The deal
was put through by Mr. P. M. Chad-
bourne, of Nelson, B. C.. representing
the smeltor.
The Summer season has just practically set in and the Old-timers look for
a good six weeks of prospecting vet
this fall.
R S. Gallop, who is developing tlie
South Side mineral claim, situated on
Goat Creek, a tributary of the Jumbo
Fork of Toby, uncovered an immense
showing of gray copper and argentifei-
ous galena on the lllth inst. This property hns a well defined lodge averaging
Ho feet in width and traceable for over
1200 feet. The new strike was made
on a part of the ledgo which was covered by over six feet of surface rock.
The development work up to the present time hns unenverred over 1.1 feet of
ore. This property was located during the season of 1898 by Richard S.
Gallop.   This  property   is  one  of a
group of nine claims owned by Mr.
Gallop, A force of men have been
workijg thoughoiit the season All the
other eight claims have excepti mally
fine showings of ore. Development
work done so far shows a decided Improvement, Mr. Gallop is one of the
pioneers of the Kooteiiuy country, nnd
has been one of the main factors in
bringing the Windermere Mining camp
to the notice of  tho milling world.
A $5.000 hotel will be located at Canterbury Immediate! v.
It is understood that a large amount
of   money   will   be   expended on   tbe
Canterhmv tnwm?U? this fall.
The latest strike made on No.2 Creek
by Joe LesPard et al. is considered one
of the greatest ever made in the Kootenay country
B. O. Burton has uncovered a nice
showing of high grade ore ou his property situated on McDonald (.'reek.
Delphine mine, regular shipments
will be made in the very near future.
A trial shipment   will   probably   be
tnado   this   fall   from   the   White Cat
group on Boulder Creek, owned   by J
