Ninth Year
Trial Causes Little Excitement now
ESTERHAZY'S LETTERS
Evidence Cropping up Points to Ester.
hazy and Not Dreyfus as tbo
Guilty Party,
Paris, Mny 30.��� After reading M.
Morunrd's defence which concluded by
maintaining that the material of the
bordereau and the moral evidence cropping in during tho inquiry pointed
nut to Dreyfus, but to Esterlmzy
ns the culprit. M. Ballot de Beau-
pie dealt with the question of motive.
He ruud the police reports famished
by M. Uueuea, tlio detective, all unfavorable (0 Dreyfus and reports ot the
prefecture of police pointing out that
there had been a confusion of Dreyfus
with other* of the same name who bail
been mixed up with gambling aud
disreputable female association. The
latter reports were nor produced nt
the trial in 1894.
M. Ballot do  Beaupme then pointed
out that Dreyfus could not havo  acted
as a traitor  from anger or disappoint
uieut as he had the finest prospects for
an excellent military  career.
On the other band, the reporter alleged was n soldier of fortune always:
begging from bhjj -���^ovjeuders.
Continuing, the reporter read loiters
writteu by Estorhazy abusiug France
and the French army, these producing
a deep impression upon the audience.
He referred to a letter written by
Esterhnzy to Baron Rothschild datod
June 21st., 18)1 to Ihe effect that if
his application for money were refused, he would have no resource but
to kill his family and then commit
suicide. Suoh, said the reporter, wns
Esrerhazy's language on the eve of
the date when the bordereau was
"placed. " The inference to be drawn
���was that, Estorhazy sought iu treason
resources necessary to carry on u life
of dissipation.
At this point, with the evident approval of all who listened M. Ballot
de Beaupare quoted from M. Mor-
nard's statement as follows:
Although justice has been rendered
more or loss impotent with regard to
Esterhazy bv the letters acquittal ot
the charge of being the author of the
bordeuu, it is none the less tho duty of
the supreme court to restore to liberty
au innocent man   unjustly oonriomed"
Prior to the adjournment M. Ballot
do Beaupare read a letter from Hie
British General Talbot who iu 18!)4
was attached to the British embassy
in Paris, rectifying the deposition of
the General Marquis de Gallifot.
This letter reached M. Mazean
through diplomatic channels. In it
General Talhot says that Marquis de
Gallifot had misinterpreted his (Talbot's) words as he had never had por
sonal relations with Easterhazy in
the way of espionage, but had simply
heard that, Easterhazy's charnoter wns
well known to the fnreign military
attaches. The court adjourned at half
past six, when very fow of tho publio
yet remained   iu   the  vicinity.
The Republican Guards immediately returned to their barracks and
the cordon of police was dispersed.
Paris, May 20.���Tho Dreyfus affair
appears to have lost the power of producing any unusual excitement. The
scone in the court of cassation had all
the aspects of a solemn religious oere-
mouy, aud the elaborate precautions to
proveut the expected riotous demonstrations proved quite unnecessary.
Nothing indicated that anything unusual had happened In the assembly.
Among tho small audience that could
be accommodated were General Chan-
oine, former Minister of War, and
the mother of Dreyfus, who wns dross-
nd in black.
M. De Beaupare read his report amid
religious silence and iu tones of singular clearness and distinctness. The
most oharaottristio feature of his address is a scrupulous impartiality.
His first days task wns to summarize
the ground and to classify and explain
the documents in his portfolio. Tomorrow he will give his personal opinion of the matter, but his aim appears
to be to let. the evidence so far as possible, speak for itself.
Only one judge ia absent, owing to
illness, and the general belief is that
revision is secure.
gins. "I recognizo nnd nccept the supreme authority of the United Statos
of America." etc The Filipiuo members nre all prominent lawyers. Spanish will be the oiiieial language of the
courts. There has been an agitation
among tho local British and Amori
can business men and American lawyers who enmo to the Philippines to
uiake fortunes to have the English code
and language adopted, but Major
Geuoral Otis concluded that it would
bo unwise, eveu if primtinal to upset
loug usage. He thought it best to
give tlio natives courts in the language
to which they have boon accustomed.
Two correspondents of a New York
newspaper have been debarred for fabricating an interview with General
Lawtuu dated May 2!)rd, aud for
evading the censorship.
PROGRESS SS NOW ASSURED
All the By-Laws but One Pass by a Large
Majority.
THE   B1TTNERS     HERE   AGAIN.
Opon   to    a   Large   House   iu  "The
Young Mrs. Wiuthrope."
To please, it should not bo neoe~sary
to become vulgar. The Bittner theatre
company, which opened a week's engagement at tho Nelson Opera House
last evening, oontains some excellent
people who are quite capable of giving any audience thorough satisfaction
and thero is consequently no exmse
for resorting to disgraceful pictures
thrown ou a cauvas from ono of the
moving machines thai have about as
ninny names as inebriates. This time
the one is "Waragraph." The majority of the pictures wero iuteresting
but one was decidedly vulgar, so much
so that several ladies left the theatre.
If Mr. Liittuer has such a low estimate
of the Nelson public, Manager Amiable
ought to insist that the objectionable
picture should be eliminated for the
rest of the week. Mr. Bittner's remarks before the curtain were also delightfully refreshing aud familiar.
"I tell you people we're mighty glad
to be with you again. " were his opening words. No ono will quarrel with
him for being glad but ho might take
a littlo more reiiued way of telling ns.
Nelson is not u mining camp. Its
citizens aro intelligent and refined
and it is a poor compliment to thorn
when theatrical companies become so
decidedly patronizing.
These objectionable features would
not have stood out so prominently had
the play been of the" same class. It
was not. however. " Youug Mrs. Win-
thrope" is one of tha finest pieces of
the kind written in late years It has
hoeu f.n instantaneous sacoess wherever presented in the East. It is a very
powerful piece and is hurdly a "society comedy" as the piny bill described
it. It deals with the estrangement of
a young husband nnd wife owing to
misunderstanding. Thero is the usunl
separation but not the usunl reunion.
"ho latter essential to a successful
stage pieco is brought about iu n most
delightful manner nud as it was presented last night it brought tears to
the eyes of not a few iu the audience.
It is a beautiful play and was very
cleverly bundled.
Mr. Wnldron, the leading man, is
very much after the type of Melbourne
MucDowell. He resembles that well
known actor in appearance and has
his mannerism to n nicety. He is
clever and made a decidedly favorable
impression ou the audience. Mr. Bittner as the jovial and astute lawyer
was capital. The part suitod him
perfectly. Iu the last act ho was immense. (This has no reference to him
from a physical standpoint). As Her
berl, Mr. Fulton was very pleasing.
Miss Ohoato confirmed the good impression made bore on the occasion of
tho former visit of tho company. She
is a cnpnblo actress, in fact about tho
best over seen in. Nelsou. Sho had
a trying part last night and handled
it in a highly creditable manner. Tho
prettiest scene ever witnessed on a Nel
so stago was with her, Mr. Wnldron
nnd Mr. liittuer iu the last not.
"Edith" was taken by Miss Bittner.
Sho too. was all that could be desired,
tier noting wns very touching throughout, its sweet simplicity going
straight to her heareis' hearts. Miss
Stevens mado a very lovable "Anut
Ruth,'' aud Mrs. Hermann as the
mnohly married "Mrs Dick" was
very enjoyable, She wiib the whole
show to a lady in a front seat who
startod peals of hourty laughter thnt
been rue so intentions that it nearly
spoiled tho play several times. In fact
it was a most hilarious audience, notwithstanding the many touching incidents in tho play. A feature worthy
of notice was tho splendid costumes
worn by the members of the company.
Tho ladies iu the audience must have
bad considerable to interest them in
tho handsouio gowns worn by tho
actresses.
Between tho acts there was a jumlilo
of pictures aud specialties that Deemed out of place with such a play.
But they were very good. Tonight
"At Gay Land Branch," will be giv-
'on. It id a Dociety comedy and with
such a company should ho well worth
seeing. If Mr. Bittnor adheres to respectable work, for which his company
is so well qualified , he will do a good
weeks' business.

The Oity Council Is Now in a Position to Go Ahead With
Their Plans for the Development and Improvement of Nelson.
Yesterday,from a civic standpoint of
view, was Ihe most iniportantday of the
year. Thero were six important
measures submitted to the rate payers,
measures whose acceptance or defeat
meant progress or stagnation lo the
City of Nelson, nnd which wero to
show whether or ho tlio citizens were
alive to the requirement of a young
and rising modern city. A glance
at the object for which tho money
was being asked sulliciently demonstrates their importance. Bylaw No. :i8
asked authority for tho City to borrow
$15,000 for extending Ihe sewerage
system. The town hns outgrown tho
present system, and will continuo to
outgrow it us time goes on. The obvious thing was to extend tho system.
To do this money was required, so tho
not ooonrrad when it did there would
have been danger of a water famine.
Tho .imperative necessity of doini.
away with such a stale of things ai
once is obvious, unless people prcfci
going to bed at night with the niicom
fottnble assuranoo that they may
invoke to find the town iu ashes, al:
through iack of water. Tho citizens.
however, in tho proportion of 2-10 ti
80 appreciated the gravity of the sit-
��� uation, and Nelsou will soon have a
; proper supply of water all tho yeai
'round. To effect this a steel pipe will
, bo laid from Cottonwood Lake, and
the major part of the money voted
yesterday will bo spent ou this pipe.
The fourth money bylaw, No. 11,
was to provide $10,000 for tho construction of adequate City   buildiugs

the streets. There was but littlo sigu
of excitement, and except for glimpses
of an occasional busy canvasser no one
would havo dreamed that thero was an
election of any kind in progress. The
tho aldermen aud their friends did littlo or no canvassing, preferring to
leave tho question to the good sense
of tun ciitizciis. Tho opponents of
tlio measures, however, wero exceedingly active anil strained every effort
to defeat them. How unsuccessful they
wero the figures givtu below tell more
eloquently thnuj any words. The
voting proceeded more or less steadily
all day, aud thero were no incidents of
particular interest to record. The usual lalo voter appeared of course at
the Fire Hall registering his vote at
the very last moment The counting
of tho votes took a lung tune, but was
of course, through early in tho west
ward. A contingent came over from
ibere with tho figures, and it was soon
seen that the votiug was going verj
similarly in tho east ward. When the
votes had been counted and tho result
���mis known there was no donionstra
Hon, but the Aldermen naturully felt
a glow of subdued elation, l'bej
wero elected pledged to reform unci
progress, and had performed then
luiies in the way thai was expected ui
them, notwithstanding tactions opposition from various   dlBgluntlud parlies.

\Vero not disappointed fur their polio)

that cuuid bo useii against this course
was that it was throwing good money

good grace from the opposing parties

(io more votes would havo been necessary to have attained tho requisite
three-fifth's majority, Everybody
seemed agreed that greater civic accommodation was needed, but it was
the opinion of many that as so much
money was being raised this year, it
would lie bettor to endure tho inconvenience till next year. Bylaws Nos,

in t!ie case of the street railway com- |
puny, the City fathers had lioaon careful to  safeguard the City's  Interests, ,
und that lining the case there was'
every reason why the franchise should
bo grained. The udvaiiatagon of a
street railway are too obvious to dilate on. There was if possible ev.in
less reason to oppose Iho gits and coke
by-law. Tho syndicate's representative, Dr.  Doollttle, willingly conceded
all iho conditions  that wero required
of him,and the City were asked (ogive
nothing but the franchise, accordingly
the bylaw received general support.

Immediate  benefits    will    accrue to
Nelson from the passage of the three

benefits their subjects nre intended to

12 months in the neighborhood of
f200,000 will be spent in Nelson, and a
very large sum of this will bo spent
in wages. It does not take a financier
to seo now much the circulation of so
much money meuns to Nolsoc. It

chiints, and better times for every one.

AT THE   PEACE  CONFERENCE.
Various Unimportant Mattels Brough
t'p Today.
The Hague, May 20. The drafting
committee or sub-committee of the ar-
bitratiop committee nut today ami
discussed the Russian scheme adopting
with slight modifications, the first sii
articles, Oount Nigra, ihe chief of the
Italian delegation submitted a proposal of medial ion and arbitration, con
sisting of  six articles in the form of an
amendment to the Russian project.
The Americans ulso submitted an
amendment demanding that in the
event of a dispute between two nations
each should choose ancit her nation to
net together as arbitrators to settle the
difference without bloodshed. This
must not be coufouuded with the proposal for a permanent arbitration tribunal which the Americans will introduce this week.
The Italian proposal includes a
olausa providing that mediation und
arbitration shali not stop mobilization
or prrparaitoiis for war. Neither tlio
American nor Italian ainendmeut has
yet been discussed.
The naval and military suctions of
the disarmament oommittee both  mot
today and exchanged ideas in a desultory manner. The impression gains
ground that the outcome of this committee will bo practically nil.
The British minister to thn Netherlands,Mr. Henry Howard,gave a grand
reception tonight, at which all tho'dol-
egates and the leaders of Dutch suciety
were present.

iag the States-
Washington, May 2D. -Senator McMillan, of Michigan, had a long conference with Secretary Gage today regarding the proposed imposition of a
���oun'orvailing duty on lumber imported from Canada.
Senator McMillau ou behalf of the
northern timber interests strongly
urged early actiou and if the attorney
general's opiuion holds to section 106 of
ihe tariff act the secretary can lawfully
impose a practically urahibitive duty
on lumber from the Canadian piov-
iuoes. Such action almost certainly will
be taken.
The soctiou in question authorize*
the imposition of a retaliatory duty
ou lumber from any country or de-
uendency which may impose an export
duty on logs. Tlio increase will apply
to lumber of all kinds imported not
only from Ontario, but from but other
Canadian Provinces.

MISSING THE ISSUE.
A  number of our  Provincial  ex-
changes are wasting valuable breath
in arguing that the eight-hour  law
is not such a bad   thing and   ought
to be given a trial.    They  say  that
it is   in   operation  in other  mining
countries, and is giving the   utmost
satisfaction , indeed, one paper  has
it that British Columbia is the  solitary example of a  ten-hour  mining
day   within   the   Empire.     This   is
scarcely correct; but without  going
into that question, it may be pointed
out that an eight-hour law as an abstract proposition is not the issue ot
the present   discussion.    The  mine
owners are not contending that eight
hours are too short for a day's work
under ground, and  that the   period
should   be   ten   or  any  other such
number.    Some  of them may think
this, but it forms no part of the dispute.    The matter  at issue  is very
distinct from this.    They   complain
that  the   Government   and   Legislature ought not to have cut the day
down from ten hours to eight hours
without having given .hem notice ol
their intention.    It  is a  matter  of
the liveliest  concern  to  them, and
the custom  everywhere   followed is
to give due notice of any legislation
intended or calculated to affect  the
interests   of a   considerable   portion
of th. community.  It is not the rule
to take the people  by surprise, and
spring on them a piece of legislation
designed to work a hardship in their
business arrangements.
That is their complaint against
the Government, and it is a very
reasonable one. Of the expiedency
or justice of an eight-hour law in
itself they say nothing. Nor is the
principle in the least involved in
their dispute with the men. They
do not say the men should not have
an eight-hour day, but they claim
that they as employers should not
be expected to pay the same wages
for eight hours' work as for ten
hours' work. If the men want to
take h fifth off their day, they should
do it at their own expense, not at
the expense of others. Every man
is entitled to demand that he shall
work only eight hours a day, if he
is so minded. That is his own
business. But when he asks ten
hours' pay for his eight hours' work
it ceases to be his business exclusively, and becomes also, and
very direc ly and materially, the
business of him who employs him.
It is rather late in the day to claim
that te.i hours' pay is the just recompense for eight hours' work, for
that would mean that many years
back they were working for a wage
less by twenty per cent that they
should have had, and to claim on
the other hand that they can perform the same amount of labor in
eight hours as in ten is to argue
against very obvious natural con-
tions. Between employers and employes, .therefore the question is
whether the men, having their day
reduced to eight hours, should expect to get paid for ten. The mine
owners think net, and it is believed
that the sober, steady-going, clearheaded, fair-minded workers are
disposed,to think the same.
At any rate, such is the nature of
the dispute that is at present agitating the public mind throughout the
mining region of the Province. The
abstract principle of the eight hour
day law is not under discussion. It
may be that if the conditions were
once accommodated to this changed
order of things, an eight hour day
would prove entirely satisfactory all
around. But that is not the question, as none know better than the
men themselves.
ousy   of the   Coast.    And   then   it
adds   "But   the   comments  of our
contemporary [do   not   convince   us
that it quite appreciates the  degree
to which the   Interior   is   interested
in the progress of the Coast, or the
benefit that will accrue to that  part
of the Province  from   the   development of the commercial  importance
of the seaboard cities."    Very probably not, we should have been  surprised, indeed, if it had, considering
that the interests of the Interior   in
the progress of the Coast was in no
���tate or manner under discussion.

The young man of seventy eight,
Sir Charles Tupper, has been making a tour of the Eastern Townships and delivering speeches at the
rate of four or five a day. In the
course of one of these he revealed
the interesting secret that in 18S7
Sir John Macdonald desired him to
enter the Government, holding out
as an inducement the reversion of
the leadership of the party. But
Sir Charles declined, urging that
the next Conservative leader should
be a French-Canadian, and recommending Sir Hector Langevin, who
at that time was in good order.

THE PASSING OF MARTIN.
There have been numerous rumors
ifliiut late y regarding the dissension
among the members of the Provincial
���jo\eminent, and the Impression prevails very generally that the strained
relations existing between Finance
Minister Cotton and Attorney-General
.Martin will shortly result in an explosion whieh will wreck the Caliuet.
I'he Globe is in possession of Information regarding the situation which jus-
tifles the statement that Mr. Martin is
doomed. A majority uf his colleagues
liavo decided that he must leave the
Government. This assertion Is made
uol on '.he authority of street rumor,
but. In consequence of expressions made
privately by more than one member ol
.he ijovermneiit. That matters should
have reached such a critical stage will
��� uipr.se no one. It was never believed
for a moment in political circles '.hut a
combination contain ing Martin and Cotton could last long. Both me sirons
men���that is, strong in the sense that
each spurns the idea of "playing second
tiddie." Then again they entered the
Cabinet deadly enemies, Lung before
Mr. Senilin was called upon lo form a
ministry the enmity between Martin
and Colton was most pionouncedj but
this hatred was greatly accentuated by
the intrigue* of each to prevent the
other being taken into the cabin, I. As
fur as Mr. Heiulin is concerned of course
everybody knows his feelings lo.vards

COURT OF ASSIZE
SOME DETAILS OF THE  MORE
POETANT OASES.
IM-
There  ate Three Murder Oases on the
Docket.���Complete List of OaBes
to be Tried.
JgTliere are quite a large number of
eases ready to be tried before Mr.
Justice Drake. Tho docket include?
13 criminal cases and I] civil cases. A
remarkable feature of the criniinnl
docket is the fact thnt there are no
less than three cases of murder, and one
of bciiv nn accessory to murder after
the act.
Tbo first is Retina vs. Antonio
Brnuo, a voting Italian who was tried
iwice last autumn without either, jurv
being able to ii^tch on a verdict. It is
probable that tlio Crown will enter a
nolle prosequi iu tliis case, for subsequent developments hnvo strengthened
Bruno's story iu many important particulars. The next il Regina vs.
Phillips, who is aoorjsad of murdering
a man culled Balf. Phillips was arraigned last autumn, bnt, owing to the
absence of some of Iho Crown's wit
nesses tlio c.ise wns not proceeded
with. It is understood that the killing is admitted.but that the, defence
will prove he noted in self defense.
Home very remarkable medical evidence is evpecled at tho trial. Kegina
vs. Felice Pnsto is another murder
case. The crime was committed recently and it will be remembered Unit
he was raptured while endeavoring to
cross the Klk River. ^Michel Mnsaohio
is accused of being an accessory after
the fact. It has not been yet settled
which case, will be taken (irst.but it is
understood that Mr. J. A. Ilarvev.
Phillips' lawyer, will uress hard for
nn immediate hearing. The boy (he
is only lfl or 20) has languished in
jail now for over six moiitl s, without
having bad a chance to establish his
innonenoe. The full docket is as follows:
CRIMINAL CASES.
Regina vs. Antonio Rrniio, murder.
5 Regino vs. .Tot n Phillips, rniirder,
Regina vs, Feli��� Pasto,  murder.
Regina vs. W. D. Browstor, ernboz-

must not bo overlooked there are
many others who would like to assist

and it seems to me the proper way-
would be for the Mayor Iu call a public meeting for the purpose of organizing a general committee and managing the affairs in' a proper business
like basis.

MORKMONICY FOB CELEBRATION
Citizens Continue to Heartily Endorse
the Dominion Day Sports.
The celebration fund is growing to
encouraging dimensions. Several
names were added lo the list, yesterday
and the work of soliciting is progressing well. One ot the features this year
will likely be a trades procession aiid
the leading business houses of the city
will be asked to enter floats. A night
parade will also be a feature.
There has been sonic discussion regarding the advisability of a few gentlemen, as at   present taking  hold  of
the celebration and running it along
their own lines and there is an agitation afoot to have the Mayor call a
public meeting at which committees
representing all the citizens will appoint their own committees. Those
who have taken a lending part in the
affair thus far did so because no one
Beemed to be moving in tne matter.
They had subset i! e 1 among themselves
$800 and considered that, they were entitled to go aheadt However their end
has been achieved by awakening general interest and as long as the celebration is a big success they will be
satisfied.

\ MINES OF I
\        KOOTENAY \
The Golden Fleece and Stanley mln
eral claims were lionded during the
we^k to T.  Q. Proctor of Nelson for
$25,000.
These claims are among the well
known propeitits in the Tracy creek
country, they were located between
Tracy and Lewis creeks. The ore is
grey copper carrying gold. The ledge
is a strong and well defined one. Most
of the work so far has been done on
the surface to ascertain the extent of
ledges. Many of the assays have given high values. Mr. Proctor is well
and favorably known throughout
Kootenay and under his direction the
work on the property will be pushed
and its value fully determined.���Foil
Steele Prospector.
���   ���   ���
New Denver, B. 0., May 25.���H. 0
Oswald, a director of the Northwest
Mining Syndicate, Limited, of London,
England, has been visiting the different mines of the Slocan. Mr. Oswald's
syndicate owns the Bosum mine that
under the systematic development of
W. H. Sandiford is turning out to be
one of the best properties in the lake
district.
The Bosum has since last September
shipped 920 tons, out of which it has
paid for itself, all working expenses
and a 20 per cent dividend. On the
Bofcuni landing are twenty tons of zinc
ore to be shipped direct to Heatley Ar
Co., London, of which firm Mr. Oswald is a member. The firm is one of
the oldest doing a commission agency
business in that metropolis and is also
well known on the Pacific coaat. It
handles all the sine ore of the Bosum
This ore is a zinc blend and carries 81
ounces in silver and 45 per cent of metallic zinc.
"We are developing the mine by a
���cries of three tunnels on the lead"
���aid Manager Saudiford. "The upper
or No. 1 tunnel is in 331 feet, with ore
averaging 18 inches in width. This
tunnel intersects No. 1 shaft at a depth
ot 81 feet. No. 2 tunnel is in 430 feet
and is connected with No, 1 by three
ditlerent raises. The lowest tunnel,
No. 3 is in 160 feet and we have yet
H.00 feet to run before we get to tha
���nd line of the claim. Here we (hall
have an approximate vertical depth of
350 feet on the ore body."
From a number of smelter retur s
shown the correspondent of the
Spokesman Beview the ore gives a net
profit of from f 1200 to $1510 per car-
oad of 20 tons.
The Northwestern|Mining Syndicate,
Limited, has recently bought outright the Lake view group adjoining
the Bosum to the South. Development on this group will be undertaken
this summer. The syndicate are also
interested in 11 other claims up Four
Mile creek. The syndicate, which is a
London one, is capitalized for 20,000
with only 10,000 pounds called up. ���
Spokesman-Review.
��� ���  ���
Last 1 hursday the last half of the 12-
drill compressor plant for the Oity of
Paris and Lincoln in White's eajnp
passed through Cascade oh the way to
the mine. There were two carloads of
the machinery,requiring six freighter's
outfitB. They had been six days on
the road from Bonburg.���Cascade
Record.
��   *   #
Sandon, B. C, May 23.���Tomorrow
morning 25 employes of the Noble Five
will be notified that they are laid off
and the mine will close down pending
settlement of the wage question. The
company will pay $3 for eight-hour
shifts.
��� ���  ���
A fine copper strike has been made
in the Bed Lion claim in Bock Creek
camp, on the Kettle Falls stage road
between Marcus and Cascade City.
The claim is owned by a Spokane company, in which James Dawson, J. A
Carrie, H. C. Lilienthal and other*
are interested. The company have
been advised by the men at work on
the claim that a crosscut from the tunnel which was following the vein, has
opened three feet of solid copper ore.
Samples of the find have been received
at the office of the company. There
are great chunks of pyrites intermixed
with native, gray and peacock copper.
There is almost no quartz in the ore.
The most unpromising looking pieces,
when broken, show solid sparkling.ore
throughout. James Dawson said yesterday that the poorest sample in the
lot that, came down was assayed, and
that it ran 5 8 per cent, copper, making
with tome gold and silver values, $22.45
per ton. What was considered a fair
average sample ran 20 per cent, copper,
carrying $80.34 in all values. Mr. Dawson considers the latter a fair sample
of the three feet of pay streak just
opened. He is of the opinion that the
ore will ship at $75 per ton or better.���
