WHAT IS NOW NEEDED
the incident did startle hiin somewhat
lint then, he said, what was the use
nf getting excited over it.
The explanation of the presence of
the dynamite in this case is simple.
.Sometimes thero will be a little space
iu a drill hole between the different
sticks of giant, powder. One charge
will go off before another, and the result soi otimes is that it blows out a
portion of the rock containing another
charge before tho IaMer explodes, and
thus leaves a portion of the powder intact in the hole. This, it is thought,
happened in tbo Deer Park laat evening.-���Rossland Miner.
A   LA BOUBGOGNE OASE.
Injury Done to the Oountry by the Eie;ht-
Hour Law���Wages Paid in
Other Parts-
Mr. T. J. Lendrum, a gentleman
well known in the local mining circles, returned to Nelson yesterday after a long visit to the States.
Speaking to The Miner's representative yesterdny, Mr. Lendrum said that
he was afraid the eight hour bill would
do considerabe injury to the country
and retard its progression. He considered the bill was wholly unnecessary and
uncalled for. In parts of Arizona
and Nevada, where ho had been visit -
ing, the men there worked 10 hours a
day aud their pay varied from $3.50
to $3 por day. There was no sign of
disconteutand the mining business was
prosperous there. He thought that the
Uovernment of this Province had forgotten tho faot that there were very
fow dividend paying miues here. The
new aot was aimed at the paying
miues,but in reality thn hardship caused bj it fell upon prospects and undeveloped pi:uea. What is wanted heie
is capit '.���."'!* enterprise. The development ol a claim ii always hazardous
and anxious work, $:i is high, almost
too high, ii price to pay for such work.
In the Ainsworth camp, Swing the
boom of, 18BL v.igos wero st the *wti
of $11.50 per day of 10 hour shifts.
Since. 18fl5 this rate had boon reduced
to $3 a day. As a matter of fact the
men never worked tho full 10 honrs,
nine or nine and a half hours being
the utmost limit of time they were
employed.
He had had a large experience in
the Ainsworth en np. The properties
there, boing principally low grade
ores, wore good examples of properties
where the utmost inducements must
be gi\en to capitalists,for tho devolou-
ment of such is hard uphill work tor
investors.
Ho knew from recent experience that I
Madame Risal Wins Damages Against,
the Oompany.
Paris, June 28.��� The action for damages brought by Madame Resal as a result of the loss of her husband in the
sinking of the Frouch line steamer La
Bourgogne, iu collision with the British steamer Cromartyshire, July 4,
1898, off Sable Island, N. S., has resulted in a vsrdict against the company for 100,000 francs. The plaintiff
at tho same timo was debarred from
claiming any money lost with M. Kesal which may hereafter be recovered.
The oourt found the company responsible for the acts of the Oaptain, who is
declared to be at fault in not bringing
his ship to a standstill after tho collision, iu losing timo in launching the
boals, and iu not furnishing the passengers with life bolts.

mauy investors ovot tho International
line woro uneasy at the state of affairs
hero. Though the country is toi rich a
one for any rash aud illadvised legislation to destroy, yet the preseut act
would, in face already had, caused
wavering investors to turn tbeir attention elsewhere for tho investment of
their capital. British Oolumiba cannot
afford to  lose   one   investor.
Moreover American investors who
had already laid ont money in Brilish
Columbian mines woro now disposed
to wait before they put Iheir hands in
their pockets for more working capital
until a change or son.e modus vivendi
between the mine owners and the
miners had been arrived at. The eight,
hour bill had filled the minds of American investors with a distrust. Mr, Lendrum doeB not take any interest iu Provincial polities but, in what ho states,
merely expressed the views of mining
men m the States who aro largoly interested in this country and with whom
he has been reconllv brought in contact.
Manila, June 28.���Major Geueral
Otis has ordered the opening up to
trade of many important ports that
have been closed since the outbreak.
These included San Bernandino on the
west coast of Luzeri, Aparria ou the
north, Curiraao and all ports in tho
islands of Samar and Leyto. Many
ships used in inter-island oommorce
have beon tied up in the harbor here
for months, and the shippers and merchants have beeu urging tho governor to raise the blockade.
Whon tleoision was made known yesterday tho scene in the custom house
was as animated as on the floor of an
American Stojk Exohuage. It was received with cheers. Ship owners
rushed to got their clearance papers.
There will be a boom in the hemp business. Guuboats will protect the shipping in some ports but elsewhere ships
must risk confiscation by tho insurgents who exact tribute of all the ships
they permit to sail.

NEARLY    ANOTHER   AOOIDENT.
Almost a Repetition of the War Eagle

Thoro came very near being a repot: -

7 o'clook. At the time mentioned, 1
Messrs. A. Lome Bochor, general
mauagor of tho Doer Park ; William
Tregear, tho foreman, and two machine men woro in tbe drift. Tho machine drill was slugging away liko a
drummer heating tho roll call. Mr.
Tregear wished to show Mr. Boohor
the charaotei of thu ore that win being
passed through, and began picking in
tho surfaoe of the drift. Suddenly he
gave the pick a good awing aud it
went in clean up to the haft. He
carefully pulled it out and found the
steel was covered with yellow looking
stuff. A short examination revoalod
that he had struck a drill hole in
which was giant powelor that had not
gone off, and ho said without showing
any excitement: "That's devilish
poor dynamite or wo would havo all
teen blown into tho other end of the
drift." Mr. Bochor lighted a cigarotte
to relieve his feelings, an.1 slowly remarked between puffs: "That, was
rather a oloso call." In tho meantime
tho machine was plugging away only a
foot or so distant from whoro tho powder was still in the hele. The machine men seemed to hardly notico
tho incident. After completing his examination of tho drift, Mr. Tregear
said to the men : '' Boys be careful,
ami don't blow yourselves up," and
they replied that they would look out
ior themselves all right Then Messrs.
Becher and Tregear returned to the surface,   The former acknowledges that

Lack of praetico cannot bo attributed as the cause of defeat if such is the
fato the Argonauts meet at the coming regatta.
Not only aro thoy training themselves diligently and carefully, but tho
crew is familiarizing itself with the
course as well. Last night tho eight
went to Fawley Court, half the course
iu three miuutes and 38 seconds, and
finished the whole distance in seven
minutes and 17 seconds. This morning Charley Goldman covered the 1st
half of tho course, oreditod as the
most difficult portion, in four minutes

Judging by the form tho Argonauts

over the course since thoir arrival, i
many authorities who havo been

Tho Loudon Club's four will be
brought here on Friday. Bush Thompson has just returned from an hour's
hard practice with the viow of reducing his weight. Charley Goldman is
not as confident of winning as ho has
been, but be is working diligently and
ib not in tho least discouraged. The
Weather this morning is rainy and
muggy.

known views on physicial development ; though the reorganization of tho
food ingestions in tbe shape of the
kitchen preparation of fojd were
hardly within the scope of the discussion. To this Mrs. Miller replied that
rational and physical education was
tho ouly question she wished to discuss, and suggested that perhaps it

Miller to continue which she did, meeting with much applause.

AGAINST ARCHBISHOP IRELAND
New York, June 27.���A dispatch to
the Herald from Brussels says:
The Revue Generale, a well known
Belgian magazine, patronized by most
of the leaders of the Catholic party,
has consented to publish a volent onslaught on Arcbjishop Ireland by
the French clerical writer, Ricault de
Hericuult. The writer finds Mgr.
Ireland much too advanced.    He says.
"The American archbishop recently
came to Franco as a commercial traveller of revolutionary ideas. The
French Catholics wero struck at hearing a foreigner pretending to teach
them how they were to behave themselves and at the real scandal oaused
by this successor of the   apostle.
"We o*fer our congratulations to
France upon having become a Free
Masonic republic which exiles some of
its priests and sends others into the
aimy and closer convents. Many
French prelates looked upon Ireland as
a savage. He has been truly described
as a bombshell."

The commissioner and Messrs. Shiney,
Oidham, Mailke.Miller and the.French

mers returned to Hanoi on June 21,

TO WELCOME DREYFUS.
Rennes, June 28.���Madame Dreyfus
arivod here today. There was a demonstration upon the part of the Inhabitants,
Washington, June 28.���In official
circles the course of Canadians in seeking to deal with British West Indian
commissions which have recently beeu
here to negotiate reciprocity treaties
in regard as significant, as it shows
Cauada's desire to enjoy all the trade
concessions which this country secures
to the southward. The invitation to
the several commissions comos from
the Canadian Gnvornment, nnd not
from London as was first stated. It is
transmitted through the British embassy to two of the commissioners,
those of British Guiana and Bermuda
have already accepted it and are in Ottawa cenferring with tbe authorities
there.
Canada and Bermuda have a convention with "favored nation clause."
Besides the same rates as are granted
to tbe Uuitod States Canada desires
further trade arrangements and doubtless will secure concessions, though tbe
great distance between the ports <f
Canada nnd the West Indies is likely
to negative the advantages to a large
extent.

brightest fireballs that ever come within the vision of the people of Spokane,
patsed over the city last Saturday
evening. It, came several hours before
the fierce eloctrical storm of the early
Suuday morning, but it is regarded as
tho forerunner of that unusual disturbance. Captain Covetly aud Detective
McDonald of the police department
wore Btauding in front of tbe station about !) o'clook Saturday evening
when the strange sight oame into their
view. It wns sailing high in the sky
and coming from tho east. It orossed
Howard street at such au angle thatfer
a moment it was hid ion from the observers at the station by the large
brick block occupied by the Grund Hotel. Theu it appeared again and continued its onward course toward the
west. When at a point that was apparently above Latah oreek at its junction with the river tho meteor burst
into many pieces, just as a large rocket goes all to pieces when nt its highest
point. Tho spuotacle wns a beautiful
one, indeed. A myriad of sparks in
all the coioi-s ot the rainbow filled the
air for a second, and then all was
darkness again.

THE KOOTENAY  AT PARIS.
The Counoil of the Nelson Board  of
Trade are losing   no time in  carrying
out their compact  with the Provincial
Mineralogist.    They agreed  to furnish
a collection of minerals  for the  Paris
Exhibtion, covering   the  two  mining
divisions of Nelson and Goat River. A
gentleman in every   way   qualified   to
make the selections  has beeu  engaged
in the person of  Mr. Ohadbourn,   who
will proceed at once to   visit the various camps  of   the   distriot, of  which
mine   owners   and   managers   are  requested to take   notice and   to  render
such   assistance  as   they   can.    It   is
desired to be understood,however, that
they need not reserve  their  specimens
until Mr. Chadboum's  visit,   as  they
may be sent at   once   and  directly   to
the   Board of   Trade here.    The transportation companies   have kindly consented to carry   them free of cost.     A
package of specimens addressed to   the
Nelson Board of Trade, iu  care of Mr.
F. W. Peters, will  be accepted at any
railway station of   the  O.   P.   R.,   or
at any   lake   or river   port of call  for
tbe company's   lines  of  steamers.    A
similar  arrangement   has beeu   made
with   the   Great  Northern   Railway,
packages  in    this    oase    to  be  addressed in oare of Mr. G.    K.    Taoka-
bury, agent, Nelson.
The Miner  has muoh pleasure in assisting to oirculate this information as
widely   as   possible.     Every  mining
district in   the   world  will  doubtless
be   represented   at   Paris   next   year.
The Dominion and Provincial Governments are going   to much   trouble and
expense to see that   British   Columbia
is  given   a  plaoe with  the rest.   It
shonld be the ambition  of  mine owners and managers in Kootenay   to furnish an exhibit worthy  of its reputation ; and   if tbey will join  with   the
Board   of   Trade  and   do   everything
they can to   faoilitate their  endeavors
to secure   a oolleotion that will   show
tlio diotriofc ot its best, they will be doing a valuable   service   to the mining
industry of the Province.
One citizen   declared be would  rather
bave paid their hotel   bill   out  of  his
own pocket than havo   them treated so
uncivilly.    Another    whose    remorse
stuoto him   shortly after   their arrival
offered his   cheque   for   fifty   dollars.
"The Record pointed out very forcibly
the importance of the visit of so many
editors," our  contemporary continues,
"and urged fhat   they be received aud
treated in   a   proper   manner;  but  it
was not done, and  Rossland has missed tbe best opportunity  she   ever  had
of getting extensively advertised   at  a
small cost.''
All unconsciously the Rossland paper pays a poor compliment to its
owu trade aud kind. It says in effect
that those editors required the bribe
of a feast, or a guzzle, or free quarters,
in order to give a truthful impression
of the places they visited. Rossland
is a smart mining camp, but those excursionists are not expected to say that
it is unless they are paid for it. They
were not paid, therefore they will go
away and either distort the truth or
say nothiug. If that is tho kind they
are, the people of Rossland have little
occasion to reproach themselves for
not eutortainiug them. Let us take
leave to question whether The Record
does justice to their character.

Before   disporsing on the last day of
their visit  to  Montreal,  the Vermout
Grand   Army   of   the  Republic bad a
final parade.    This   sentence is  taken
from a   report   in Tho Montreal Star:
'When   passing   tho  statue of Queou
Victoria, in Victoria   Square, tho   G.
A. R. men  salutod  her Majesty  with
doffed hats,   repeating   the   salute  on

from   a  kbody   of   attacking natives.
These  are pleasant iuoidents, such   as

AN ODD   MISTAKE.
When discussing tbe two tender*
for printing the Corporation by-laws
the other day, the Aldermen were informed by the Oity Olerk he had notified tbe oflic's that tbe tenders should
be handed in not later tban noon of
the 28rd inst. One was said to have
been five hours late, and it wa9 ruled
that as it had not been received
within the specified time it could not
be oousidered. The notification received by The Miner reads as follows:
"Nelson, B. O., June 20th., 1899.
"The Miner  Publishing   &   Printing
Oc., Nelson.
"Dear Sirs:���I am requested to ask
yon to be good enongb to send in a

THE PROFITS  OF ADVERTISING.
Tbe profits of advertising are not di-
reot, as are the returns from a sale.
Nevertheless, when the proper medium
for bringing an advertisement before
the publio is selected the profits are
usually immediate, although, of
course they como in a roundabout manner. If at times they seem delayed it
is because the merchant's announcement either has not reached the poop e
whose patronage he seeks or because
there is no pressing demand for the
special line of wares which he may
have for Bale. In either case the profit is sure to come eventually ; for the
purpose of advertising is to awaken interest in the tradesman's goods and
once having aroused that interest the
wary merchant will proceive tbe
necessity of sustaining a result sure to
be attained by a persistont use of a
great newspaper's advertising colum ns.

There is nothing here as to the time
within whioh tendors would be received. How tho mistake in tbe information given tbe Aldermen oould

HARD ON THE PRESS MEN.
'
The Rossland Reoord is in a temper.
It lashes the citizens for not having
paid greater attention to the Western
Canadian Press Association. "Rossland treated them very shabbily,"it
says. It permittted tbem to come and
go without even taking the pains to
be civil to them. No one was present
to receive them on their arrival.
Their hand baggage was seized upon
by hotel runners whom they mistook
for committeemen, but the charge at
the hotels uinlcceivrel them. They
were left to shift for theinsolves and
pay their way like ordinary mortals.
It was not until after they had gone
that the awfnlness of tbeir own discourtesy began   to dawn on tbe people.

Tenders for Materials Being
Considered.
THE  PROPOSED   ROUTE
First Two Miles About to Be Laid���The
Gradual Extension Over the Oity���
The System Explained-
It was Hxpectfld tnat tlio contract
i'or the materials advertisoil i'or in the
local press would lave been awarded
tonight. However a number of tenders hail to be considered and it was
doided to postpone the selection. Although no definite statement has yet
been made as to what routes the company will chooso it is understood that
certain points of traffic will undoubtedly be connected, such as tne government wharf and the O.P.R. depot (via
Baker street) and Bilker street and the
rink at the top of Stanfey street with
possibly an extension to the mountain
station of the Nelsou & Fort Sheppard
railway. It is hoped that there will
be a line run from Baker street to
Bogustowu. There are many desirable
properties in that locality which would
become admirable residential sites for
business men were the connection
witb the town made easy.
Of course the difficulties the company have to contend with are not distances but elevations. They are about
to lay two miles of the road and in so
doing must take iu view the fnct that
eventually they hope to construct lines
which will embrace the whole City.
It will be easily understood that, at
first, a street railway in a town the
size of Nelson cannot possibly be made
to pay handsome dividends. It is
tho future of tho town (in which the
present company have Jut so much
confidence) that must he looked to for
profits. The company therefore do not
anticipate any difficulty between themselves and the powers that be as to the
streets along whioh the first lines shall
rnn.
Oars of the very latest patterns, both
enclosed and open, well lighted and
heated by electricity, in winter, nre
being designed for the company. The
system is that known ns thejoverhead
electric system. To explain this in as
simple a manner as possilile it mny
be said that the motive power is con
veyed from overhead wires to tho cars
by means of a wire broom which is
fastened to tho cars with the business
end upwards and which literally
brushes the wire. Powerful brakes
nre fitted to the cars so that thev can
be, if neoeesai-y, stopped in a second,
thus reducing any risk to a minimum
The electrio power will, it is understood, be brought from the Boniiiugton
Falls station. This is roughly the
outline of tho present scheme of the
company as propounded to The Miner
yesterday.
AN UNTIMELY  HAIL STORM.
Plays
Violent Storm of Last   Evening
Havoc With the Streets.
Whether tho visiting editors brought
n sample of had prairie weather with
them or tho storm oame to prevont
them from, feeling lonosome, yesterdays hail, rain and wind storm oame
as a surprise and an nnweloomo oue
to the people of Nelson.
All kinds of weather were experienced during the day. The morning
onened with a gray, windswept cloudy
sky which lator fulfilled its promise
in heavy showers of rain, alternated
by a steady drizzle, till early in the
afternoon wheu the clouds parted,
piling up in win to fleecy banks, and
tho sun oame out warm and bright.
Towards evening moro raiu clouds
camo drifting along; discharging a
passing shower, occasionally, nntil
seven o'clock. Then n dark mass of
clouds swept up tho valley of tlio
Kootenay, and by half past seven
with a very slight stretch Ot imagination one could imagine (hemsclvos in
Rogina in a spring blizzard. The mountains were blotted out of Hight in the
driving fury of tho hail, which rattled
down with HurpiiH"ing fury for some
ton minutes, followed hy a tropical
dolngo of rain. Along linker street
the decorating shrubs wore many of
them blown down, aud most of the
oross streets were running torrents,
over a foot deep in places. All thiongh
the town flower gardens suffered, and
in tho hit orchards much of tho loaves
wore beaten off the limbs of the trees
by tho force of Iho hail, After it was
over tho hail, whore drifted against
walls or obstaoles, was lying a couple
of inches deep.
A great deal depends on today's
weather as to what kind of roads thero
will be for tomorrow's races, although
even under the host oircuuistances
they will be a little soft.
TEACHERS' EXAMS.
During next week an examination
of applicants for Toachor's Liconsos
in British Columbia will bo held in
Nelson as well as in tho other threo
cities of Kamloops, Vancouver and
Victoria.
Candidates must attend at tho Pub-
li3 School building ou Monday Jlrd of
July nt K : 1., a. in., and tho examination will bo uiidor tho ohorgo of William Burns, B. A., inspector of schools
for tho Kootenays.
This is the first examination held in
Nelson, and is  due   to tho  persistent
RAILWAY SCSE11
January and, it is believed, by the
more practical influence ot Inspector
Burns. It is a distinction, that emphasises Nelson's claims to be considered the educational centra of Southern British Columbia. It will also
prove a great convenience and saving
to candidates going up for examination
from this section of the Province.
THE NELSON   OPERA HOUSE.
Harry Lindley, ever popular in Nelson, appeared last night at the Opera
House with a "powerful combination. '' The first piece was a three- act
comedy intitled"Everybody's Friend, "
The play is an excellent one and fnll
of genuine humor. Mr. Lindley took
the part of Major de Boots with suo-
oess, ably seconded by Mr. Young,
though unfortunately the latter gentleman seemed a little imperfect in bis
knowlodgo of his part. The other
chnracters were all creditably filled
though Mr. Lindley was decidedly the
life and soul of Ihe piece. The usual
"interludes" weio given between the
acts and special notice should be given
to a little Oamsol styled "Little Mys
tic." She possesses an nuusnal voice
which might develop into something
musically greater, provided it is not
mined by tho severo strain it is now
subjected to. Owing possibly to tho
inclomency of the weather the audi-
ouce was hut small a fact to be deplored as the play was very much better
than somo that have beon seen bore
before. Mr. Lindley dosorvos better
patronage by Nolson and as he appears
for threo more nights there is time yet
to givo him a bumper l.o.se.
Tonight's bill will be the "Tenderfoot Divine, " a drama of Mr. Lindley's
own. It is a mixture of comedy and
pathos and bas received the universal
sanction of press aud public. All the
specialties will be changed.
THE NICKEL-IN-THE SLOT.
A wayfarer struck a saloon yesterday
"Gimme two nickels for this dime, I
haven't the price of a drink" he said.
The house was generous and provided
the nickels and the desirod refreshment. The wanderer turned to the
slot machine, backed the white and
the blue with uncertain hand, then
found the handle   had   been removed.
"Whore   the ��� " nnd    the    glasses
begin to dance at the sound of his
talking. Then the barman took up
his parable aud explained that a short
time ago some man had cleared out
the machine and had come to the bar
to bo paid. His tortune was so extraordinary that the house took an interest in the giimo and discovered that at
every turn of the wheel of fortune the
machino paid )10 cents. It was then
too late to protest so tho handle was
removed. The fortunate "bucker" is
now a cheerful giver.
NELSON     FEDERAL   BUILDING.
It will bo romoinbored that ai the
last meeting of the Board of Trade
council it was resolved that a telegram
be sent to Mr. Hewitt Bostock reminding him of tho promised appropriation
for the Nelson Federal Building and
requesting him to see tbnt tho samo
wa i provided for it in the supplementary
estimates. This wns done and Ihe following rnuly was received by tho secretary of the Board of Trade yesterduy.
"Supplementary estimates for this
year not brought-.��� yet.    BOSTOCK.''
Somo members of tho Council soem
to think the reply to be an evasion ot
a direct answer. At nny rale it is distinctly 11011 committal. Contrary to
reports the supplemental estimates
have not, as a matter of fact, beeu
passed.
THE WAVERLEY HOTEL.
Tho
Very
New Temperance House
Tastily Arranged.
The.Waverley Hotel, tho new temperance houso which was opened last
Monday, can lay claim to being one of
the most tastily arranged and homelike of hotels iu the Kootenays. The
parlor and reading room espooially is
most aristically furnished,aud presents
a most homelike and tempting appearance. The largo assortment of magazines and newspapers with which tho
reading room is furnished is a most
desirable feature, and will doubtless
aid in making tho now hotel a most
popular resort.
DOMINION     DAY   DECORATION.
Tho doooration committee, owing to
Mm smollnoss of the fouds plnood at
their disposal this year, have deoided
nut to oreot any arches, sky signs,
mottoes or texts. The main strees
will lie garnished with green fir and
tamarac trees Bunting and flags will
occur at intervals, and, if fine, Obi
DRIB lantetlia will be hung ou the trees
hy the street side ill the evening.
Mr. ^Sherwood as president of tho
hanging committee, finds it difficult
to make the (860 go very far. However tho best that can ho done for tho
money will assuredly be douo.

FIRE AT  WARDNER, B. 0.
A fire at Wardner, B. C., completely
destroyed two houses belonging to the
0. P. R. The buildings weie erected
during the construction of the Crow's
Nest, one being tho residence of Mr.
Garden, divisional engineer of that
section, and the other useil as offices.
Both houses were occupied, one by the
station agent who lost a large part of
his furniture and household belongings,
and the other by 0. P. R. suveyors,
who also lost considerable. The origin
of tbe fire is a mystery.

The samplers for tbe Nelson Slocan
Ore Purchasing Oo. 's plant were shipped from Denver, Colorado, on the 18th
instant.
* *   *
An average of three assays made from
ore of the Big Ohief  mine, on   Thurs
day, gave a value of more than  $4,000
to the ton.    E. J  Walsh, the manager
of the property, says of the   three   assays, that   N. 1   sample   was  selected
ore ; numbers two and three were caro-
fully sampled aoross the pay chute and
show   the  average  value of    the  pay
Btreak.    The  following copy of the assay certificate made by   H. D. Stewart
of this city,   speaks   for itself:   No. 1
���03 per cent, lead,$50.40 ;i0 2-10 ounces
silver, $34.12; 550.02 ounces gold, $11,-
480.98.    Total value, $11,505.44.
No. 2���58.12 ounces gold,$1,201.34.
No. 3.���82.95 ounces gold, $081.07.
In the above values were tho following amounts   of   coarse   gold   left on
tbe 100-mesb screen :
No. 1���310.60 ounces of gold per ton ;
No. 2���20.48 ounces of gold per ton;
No. 3.���4.80 ounces of gold per ton.
These samples weie taken from the
lower tunnel, abont 900 feet in depth
below tunnel No. 1.
Mr. Walsh reports that another ledge
has been uncovered on the property,
making five known ledges. The values
of the Big Ohief is enhanced with each
days work. The owners can congratulate themselves on having one of the
most phenomenal mines in the country if not in the world.
The work will be continued aud the
force increased as fast as room can be
made for new men. It is the inten
tion of the owners, as has been before
stated, to install a 10-stamp mill as soon
as the road up Bonlder creek which the
Government is being asked to build,
in completed.���Fort Steele Prospector.
* *   *
Kock Creek, B. .0, June 25.���Work
will be commenced immediately on
tbe repair and reconstruction of the
government wagon road up the main
Kettle river as far as Beaverton. A
bridge will be constructed across the
west fork, for whioh the sum of $600
has been set aside. The appropriation
altogether is only $9000, and as it iB
to be expended in day labor is not considered here sufficient to build a good
trail let alone a wagon road. Owing to
the fact that the surveyors have found
a ps.cs up the north fork 500 feet lower
than any previous surveyed the railway will be built that way, and lots
in Rock Creek townsite have gone up.
The railway will make quite a stir
around the Kettle river valley, as there
are many valuable prospects which
would certainly become mines with
development, but owing to the difficulty of having everything brought in
by wagon and pack horse they have
not got beyond the prospective stage.

Rossland, June 28.���Superintendent
J. Moorish, of the Velvet Mine on
Sophie Mountain, was in the city yesterday and he brought excepllont news
with him. Ou the 260 foot level the
large ore body that was met on the 150
feot level had been tapped. This
proves tbe ore chute to he about 800
feet in length and 250 feet in depth.
In some places 60 feet in width. The
ore body on the 250 foot level was
found after a croosscut had been run
from the shaft for -\ distance of 54
feet.
When Superintendent Moorish last
saw it on Monday tbe ore body on the
280 foot level was about four feet in
width and there were no signs of the
other wall. The presumption, however, is that the ore chnte is as wide
on the 2S0 feet level as it is on the 150
foot level that is from 10 to 60 feet.
This establishes beyond the peradven-
tare of a doubt that ^the Velvet is a
grout mine.
It is certain now as the ore is all of
a shipping grade and carries good val
ues in gold and copper that the Velvet
is not only ono of the great mines of
tbo camp but also of the Kootenays.
In fact there is not a mine even
among the banner ones that had as
good showing as the Velvet at the same
stage of development. It is thought it
will make as good a property as the Le
Roi, which is saying a great deal for
it. The Velvet are now determined to
market the ore of the property and
will devise some method by which the
ore from the mine can be transported
to the smelter.
