Rennes, Aug. 15 ���At 8 o'clock this
evening Maitro Labori was rumoved iu
an ambulance to the residence of Prof.
Basoh, In a suburb of Rennes. He
stood the journoy will although naturally fntigned. The doctors are extremely hopeful of a speedy recovery,
but consider it would be unwiso for

absolutely uo danger of a relapse.
Jiluitro Demange had rieeidod therefore
tn.nsk for un adjournment which has
necessitated a written application by
both Maitre Dnmnnge and Oapt. Drey.
ftis who have already sent letters to the
President of the oourt martial. Col
Jonast will undoubtedly accede to the
request but he cannot graut nn adjournment for more than two data
when the application must bo renewed. Capt. Dreyfus wau's Ihe sessions
postponed until Monday next, when it
ii hoped SI. Laborie will be able (o be
present.
Dreyfus has written   two  letters t,i
Laborie. The first on hearing ihe news
of the attempt to murder the. lawyer is
a spontaneous expression of his shock
ert feelings. The socoud is avouching
epistle expressing the prisoner's regret at the cut rage, profound giatiiud.t
to Lnlione for bis heroic championship
and heartfelt wishes for his speedy re

with sympathizers has been buraended
since Saturday in th6 offices of the
league an I still holds the fort this
morning, is now regarded as an outlaw. Three inmates attemptod to
leave tbe house this morning and were
promptly nrrestod. Thev were all
armed to tho teeth, enrrying loaded six

FUTURE   OF SAMOA.
Germany Has an Eye on R. L. Stevenson's Isles  of the Blest.
Beilin, Aug. 15. The National
Zeitong. commenting upon the report
of theSamoau commission, doubts that
a satisfactory settlement of the Samoa]] question will he arrived at by lhe
three powers, while tho tripartite Government lasts. It considers the best
solution would lie in a transfer of the
group lo Germany. If ibis be impossible then Germnay should elect a governor, thereby securing Jtwo votes
while the English and An,ericnn interests should not be changed, one vote
from them being necessary to form a
majority.
London,    Aug   lfi.���The companionship of the order   of St.   Michael   and
St.   George  has   beeu conferred   upon
Mr. E. V,  S. Maxse, the British   coil
sul at Samoa.
The St. Petersburg correspondent of
The Times at Apia, in a letter which
appears this morning gives the report
to the Samoan commission in exten -
so, showing that in case of a failure on
the part of tho three Powers tn agree
as to a governor or administrator this
functionary would be nominated hy
the king of Sweden nnd Norway.
Tho correspondent expresses the opinion that the report.offers the best security ever afordod for good order in
Samoa aud a innintenance of good relations between the three powers, but
he says hu cannot believe thnt this or
auy other scheme which depends for
its success upon tbe absence of dome.s-
tiio and foreign international intrigue,
can serve any purpose but that of a
stop-gap.

LIVELY ARGUMENT
THE     BURNT     BASIN
Is Within Easy Brach of i-'elsm via Bol-
son and OolumbU and Western
Railway. -Promisin; Olaims.
The "Burnt Basin" is a new and
promising district which has received
considerable attention of late from
some of the largest mining companies
in Kootenay.
Mr. A. P. Hunter, who is the original locater of claims in that district,
sends the following interesting account:
The Burnt Ba=in is situate iu the extreme eastern portion of the Kettle
River ^Division of tbe Yale , mining
district, British Columbia, lying eight
miles east of Christina Lake, about 20
milofl north east from Cascade Oity,
thiee miles from the town of Gladstone, which is on the Columbia &
Western extension of the 0. P. R , 20
miles west of Rossland and 24 miles
south west of the town of Brooklyn.
The Basin can be reached from Nelson in a few hours by rail via Robson
and the C. P. R extension to the
Boundary country, the road now being
in active operation and a passenger
service will lo put on ut an early date.
The Burqt Basin is so called on account of all vegetation having been destroyed by fire somo years ago. The
altitude ia abort forty-five hundred
feet.
The first discoveries in this distriot
were made by A. P. Hunter . nd J.
\V. Henderson on August 4, 1896. The
snme parties, uftir locating several
claims, cut a trail from Tbe Cove on
the eitsteru shore of Christina Luke
through the dense undergrowth along
McCrae Creek to their claims, The Ed-
is jn group.
Later iu the fall of 18!><i more pros-
pe tors followed up this trail and made
locations. The assessment work done
iu 181)7 was so satisfactory tbat many
prospectors rushed in dunug the latter part of the season and the following spring, the result Leiug that tbe
entire district is located lo the ruin"
utest traction.
Tbo formation or counry rook is varied and shows great evidouco of eruption. Limestone aud slato ore predominant over  the   southern  portion.
There is nlso a disintegrated lime
shale lying very flat whioh is evidently a oappingj over an older formation.
In the northern and western portions
of the Basin, the formation is mainly
granite and there nre frequent por-
phry dykes occurring over the entire
distriot although these dykes are broken and not contiued to any one direction ot strike.
The chief attraction of the Burut
Basiu lies in the fact that nearly all
the olaims located there give good assays from the surtaoo and the oie bodies are largo, well defined aud continu
ona. Among the most noted properties
is the Mother Lode which is beiug
de eloped hy the Mother Lode Gold
Mining Co., Ltd., undoi the management of Mr. Richnrd Alexander, a
well known mining man from the Slocan country.
There are several ledges on this
group, somo free milling, while others
are a pyrotite oro.
About two thousand foot west of the
Mother Lode ia the JackBtraw, which
has three large quartz ledges carrying
good values and their continuitv has
been demonstrated this summer by
surface nuts and shallow pits.
Tho Iunesmore olaim is being operated by the Avon Gold Mining Oo., of
Rossland and a nioo ledge of high
grade galena ore baa been uncovered
within   the !aat few weeks.
The Mystery group, oonsisting of
four claims is being doveloped by the
Mystery Gold Mining Co., of Rjbs-
land, under the supervision of Mr.
A. J. Littlejohn.
The Tammany group, consisting of
eight claims adjoining the Mother
Lode and JackBtraw claims, has a fine
showing of quarts'., with considerable
gold visible to tbo naked eye; this is
a contiiiuaticn of one of the Jackstrnw
ledges.
Tbe Eva Bell and Solid gold claims,
near the Mystery group have a large
lodge of ohaloopyrite ore, assaying
over (700 in gold and copper.

Saturday's Game.
Victoria, Aug. Jo. ���(Speo'al) -Since
coining to the Coast the Nelson la-
crsso learn 1 as discovered that after
all its hard practice it lacks the one
essential to success on the field today-
combination play. It was the lack of
this quality that lost the game for
them at Vamoover on Saturday and
again today tbe boys in green put up a
better individual game than their opponents but the lack of ceam piny wns
responsible for a defeat at the bauds
of the Victoria experts. It was a cold
and cloudy day and Ihe match was
delayed until 5 o'clock on account o*'
the weather. There was in consequence a small attendance but those
who turned out were treated to a pretty
game aud, espeoially towards the
close, the excitement ran high.
At the stait the play was all in favor tf Ihe Victorias who scored two
games. Thou the visitors wakenod up
somewhat and got into the game, scoring after some prenty work. But again
the Vicloiia's-managed to add two to
their soore, in spite of thn really grand
work that was done by the Nelson
defenco which had all along djnej yoe-
mau service. Tho home was fed cou-
tautly;bul ineffeotualcombination work
or weak efforts at individual work:
combined with maccurate{shooting kept
Nelson's score down. But towards
the end the visitors made themselves
felt all over the field. The home picked up and played the Victorias almost
to a standstil. Two garaeB ^were scor
ed, tbe last just ISO seconds before time
W">s called. Had there beeu ten minutes more play Nelson would have
undoubtedly won. On tbe whole they
had the better ot the game through
out. Blackwood oould not play today.
Lynch and Hayer weie the most prominent stars. The team continues to
improve with each game. A victory
will certainly be scored nt Nanaimo
and by the time the champions aro encountered at New Westminster the Nf I-
son team will be able to give them a
very good argument. The boyB are
being very well treated ail along the
line.
SATURDAY'S   GAME.
Of the game with Vancouver on Sat-
I urday t he News-Advertiser says in
' part:
Individually Nelson perhaps has
as fast a olub as plays the game, but
were no match for the twelve-barrelled, play-together Vanconverites. In
almost every way but the right way
they showed skill and proficiency on
the field, but in atiok-handling, catching and passing thev were notioeably
oulolaened. * * * It was apparent,
however, that Nelson bad a strong defence in Lynch, Grnnt nnd Thompson.
Some attempt was made at combination with poor results. Balls, no mat
ter how well passed, were poorly handled In tho picking-up and many of
them were very poorly Jelivered, as
often as not falling into the stick of
the watchful Cowan or Foreman. Then
the visitors resorted to the old time
dodging methods. Their ability iu
this line showed them nt once to be out
of touch with the methods of modern
lacrosse. It was easy enough some
times to dodge oue man, but the seo
ond ended in a spill and a lost
ball. * * * Tho fourth game was
remarkable for tbe manner iu whioh
it showed tbe enduring strength of the
visitor's defence. Jeffs' magnificent,
runs up and down tho fiold were also
a feature From eveiy standpoint this
was the best game of the six. Iu
checking, Nelson had the best of the
play, but Vancouver easily outolussed
tbe greens in team play.    *   *   *
The Nelson team will leave today on
the Islander for Victoria where they
play the Island champions on Tuesday.
Tbe Westminster contingent at yesterday's game was large and included
several of the playing members of the
championa, who [came over to size np
the up-nountrymon.
NelBon's claims on the Provincial
Championship will bave to go unsatis
fied this season. They may win from
Victoria. They ought to win at Nanaimo. From Westminster thoy canuot
win.
Westminster will give a diuner in
honor of the Nelson team when they
visit the Royal Oity.
Manager Wright.of the Nelson team,
speaking for himself and his doughty
twelve, is more than pleased with the
kindly way in which tbey have been
treated here, not only by tbe lacrosse
boys, but by tho public generally,
Tbey could not have wishod for greater
consideration aud kin  ness.
SAYS NICE THINGS.
Thi Vanoonver Province treats the
Nelsou team verv kindly. Among
other things it says :
When the Nelson lacrosse team started
west to oapture the Provincial championship, its raembeis knew they had
embarked ou an ambitious undertaking
aud now they know and all who saw
Saturday's game at Biookton Poiut
know that the championship will foi
this year at least stay in New Westminster.
Against Vancouver's seniors they
made an exceedingly good showing,
and thej score of four goals to two
fairly indicates the present difference
betwoen the two teams. Of tho visi
tors it may be said that individually
they are all fast, skillful players, bet
ter in fact than the Vancouver men,
with possibly one or two exceptions.
Their mmiing aud catchiug were su-
petb and their checking au object lesson to those who believe that good lacrosse and rough playing are inseparable. In tbe one important essential
ot combination tactics they however,
showed a weakness which ovcntuallv
cost them the match In Nelsou tbe
practice grounds nre small and circumscribed to a degree, which practically
readers impossible any free combination play, aud to-this fact their weakness in this department of tbe game is
very largely attributable. The most noticeable feature of their play was au
entire absence of rough body work aud
indiscriminate' slashing. It was distinctly a treat to watch tho gentle wuy
in which the husky Nelson men treated their smaller and j lighter antagonists. Not once was Referee Suokliug
obliged to warn any of tho players,
and takeu all through tbe game was
the cleauest and heat that has beeu Been
at the Point this year. Had tbey so
desired they could have hammered
the looal men to pieces in the fiist
half and then won out at their leisure,
very muoh as does a certain team in
the British Columbia league.
With practice the miniug town's
team would undoubtedly prove superior
to Va"couver's nud about equal to that
of New Westminster. Even at present.
on neutral grounds they oould defeat
the J. B. A. A. aggregation with
ease, bnt on the Victoria grounds a defeat for Nelson wonld not be surprising
tomorrow afternoon.
Previous to the start of the match
the Nelson team rnled favorite iu betting circles, and one bet of 8 to 1 was
reoorded. Even money was about the
proper quotation.

THE BURDEN   OF HOSPITALITY
It it all very well lo have Urge bodies of agreeable visitors, but tbnie who
are responsible for the expenditure of
civic fundB are to be com mended if
they take time to count the cost before
undertaking to entertain them. We
have a pretty town, a nourishing
town.au ambitious town; but in a
civio way our establishment is yet but
a modest one, and it is possible through
a series of banquets to eat us out of
house and home. Prudeuce suggests
whether we should uot take very ear
nest counsel with ourselves as to
whether we ate bound to lavish extravagant entertainments upou every company of excursionists who choose to
visit ns.
That would seem to have been the
thought that was uppermost In the
minds of the members of the Council
the other night, lt is their duty to
provide for the civic maintenance, and
no one knows as welliis they that the
income for the support of it has its
limits. Au Alderman bad to confess,
with a wry face, that tbo last invasion
of newspaper men left a moustrous
emptiness In a corner of tbo corporation treasury. This does uot imply any
lack of hospitality. Thu samo Alderman, with all the others cheerfully
supporting him, would feast to the
top of their bust all visitors who came
along, if the oivio purse would but
stand the cost. But if it will not
stand it, what aie we to do?
There is another body of   newspaper
men heaving in   sight, to tbe  number
of a hundred.    They will probably expect some attention. We are to be honored with the visit  of the members of
the Mining  Institute, wbo will hold a
convention iu Nolson.    They may   expect uo attention,   but the   feeling   is
general    and    quite    strong thut  we
should give it nevertheless. Tbe Board
of Trade, with a sympathy   natural to
the occasion, warm to the idea and oall
on the Oity Council to join in the demonstration, to partake of   the   delights
of it and more  especially to  share   in
the  expense.    What  cau   the  Oonnoil
do?   Tbey have no fupd for   the   purpose; but   the    demands  of  hospitality aro too imperative, and will permit
no escape through a plea of   that kind.
Whatever   the   condition of the purse,
the table has  io  be set  and tbe   wiue
deoantered, and so it comeB that  they
will be joint hosts   with   the Board ot
Trade.    And this   is no sooner arranged than these hundred   newspaper men
uud women loom up,   curious, iuquisi
itive,   thirsty,   and   hungry.      It    iB
enough to drive   the  civio   household
distracted.    As a   pure matter of business, if we will permit   so base a consideration to mix with our hospitality,
it would pay us  better to  bestow   our
favoia and kiuduesses on   the  visiting
journalists ;for they cover a large lielo,
are men   of cnnsetiuenco in   it, aud we
in the West desire  nothing so mnch as
to become   better   known in tbe East.
But, then, tbere  are   the bills.  It is a
question   whether tbe wisest thing  to
do would not be to   leave   all   visitors
to their own resources, or to such   entertainment bb may privately   be   provided.
we have been Eritl8*h and we nre more
rather thau less so as we grow older.
Should the Senate and Penurious lock
horns on any qnestion of material
interest, aim the Commons should appeal to the people ou it, there is no
dnnbt] whatever that tbe Senate would
bow to their expressed will, just as
the House of Lords would feel bound
to do at home. That is the only recognized or possible method of breaking a
deadlock in the British Parliament
and as a constitutional principle it has
bssn accented in Canada, The fact
that the Commons has never ye' challenged an issue of the kind ttoes not
discredit the principle nor east the least
ilnubt on the lenlicy of it. It merely
proves, if it proves anything, that no
vital disagreement haa arisen ; or if it
has, that the Senate hns been so close
to the right that the Commons has
bieu afraid to appeal.

"The people of New Westminster
have an excellent opportunity afforded
them by the vacancy now existing in
their representation in Jtbe Provincial
Legislature,'' says Tlie Colonist of
Sunday. The opportunity is to make
a new departure iu British Columbia
polities. But what is the good? The
Miner believes tbat a great mistake
was mado in defeating the Turnei
Government. It believes that Mr.
Turner is an iuliuitely hetter and safer
man thau any now in power. But to
all intents and purposes he is out of
politics; at any rate he is out of the
oountry, and is not at present identified with the Opposition. The Globe
has suggested that the Opposition is
disorganzed and sadly in want of a
loader, and reoommt nds a convention
tu pull it together. The Colonist has
endorsed the suggestion and approved
nf the recommendation. What good,
then, to talk of opportunity, if measures are not ripe to take advantage of
it?

The assassination, or attempted assassination,ot M. Laborie is a shocking
itffair; but bad as it is, it is a infnor
incident when considered in the light
of Ihe awful tragedy of which Dreyfus
is the central figure. To ^e shot down
by an assassin, however cowardly and
sneakiug.ia mercy itself in comparison
with all that Dreyfus has been made
to suffer. It is not often that a country's tragedy is that country's disgrace, hut it is so in this case.

tnius that tbis extreme course is already practically recognized in Canada, for should the Commons dissolve

In the lirst place there are two cars,
cf the most modei ti design in the ait
of oar building. These cars aro huilt
with removable vestibules and donnle
trucks. The latter an an innovation
which arid considerably to smoothness
uf motion. Each cnr will be equipp-
e.l with fonr 40 hors i power motors���
that is t�� say, each car will hnve a on-
iiiieity of 100 horse power. This unusual power is nocessnry owing to the
steep grades in Nelson whioh will under the ciicumstances he almost unno
tioed by the passenger in the new
eitrs The oars will be lit by electricity and he painted a rich claret color
ricked out with vermilion
The overhead or trolley system is to
be adopted and the material nsed to-
oonstruotio'i of the snme,and thetnanner
of construction will be of Buoh a nature as to.ailoru ralter than to disfigure
the streets.
The power station is, for the expert
nnd electrician, a most important incident. Ihe power will be supplied by
the West Kootenay Power aud Liglu
Oompany from their station .'i bon
niURton Fulls. It .nay be mentioned
that the Canadian Geueral Eleotrin
Company supplied the apparatus at,
Bonniiigton. The power will be trans
formed to a lower working voltage bv
oil cooled transformers, nnd then will
drive a synchrnn ms motor of 450
hoise powot which will bo directly
oonuaotfid to a railway generator of ilia
same size. This tinil is (in be correct) named a rotary-converter.motor-
geiiarntor. The alternating current
will then bn oonverteii into n direct I

The s.vit'ihbiar.l which conlrolls the

is Mr. Drunimond's niottoo nnd it is
donbtless owing to h rigid observance
of this creed that he has attained success for tho many undertakings in
which ho is concerned. Thnt ho has
given a stimulus to the welfars of Nelson they can be no denying. It is only
to bo hoped that his sanguine expectations of ;he future of the town will be

PUBLIC MEETING   CALLED.
Oitizens Will Decide What to Do With
Visiting Newspapor Men.
The visit of the members of tbe
Canadian Press Association to Nelson
next week will be taken ns nu oppor
'unity by the Oitizens of the Oity to
impress upon the representatives of the
leading papers and periodicals of Eastern Canada tho importance of the
yueeu City of the Kootenays. One
thing that Nelson has always lacked is
legitimate advertising and the oitizens havo ofton let slip chances
to put iu a good word for their City
where it would be honeficiul This
summer, however, hns hoen au exocn
tion.for.eommeuciuB with The Miner's
Speohl Kootenay Number, which has
been circulated wherever the English
tmigne is spoken, oue thing und another has beeu brought to the front to
show the world that wo bave a great
City here. So the visit of the influential newspaper men wi'l not be allowed to pass unnoticed. Tha Mayor hns
asked The Minor to draw the attention
of the citizens to the fact that tomorrow (Thursday) evening at 8 o'clock
ii meeting of citizens will he held in
the Fire Hall to determine what will
bo done in the way of entertaining
the visitors.
Ot oourso the oliief question will bo
ways and means for without the wherewithal nothing very elaborate could
be done. The Oity Counoil has no
money for such n purpose���or at nny
into very little-nnd nn effort will hnve
to be made to supplement the City's
"'tiering. So it is probable that a subscription list will be opened and citizens will he asked to contribute in proportion to what importance eanh at-
tuchos to the visit of the members of
���he fourth estate. There should bo a
good attendance at the meeting tomorrow evoning.
Pete Henrietta   and   Pat Redmond Severely  Injured iu   the Gem Mine.
A serious accident occurred at the
Gem mine ou Sullivan Hill, Wednesday afternoon wherebv Pete Henrietta
had his leg and arm each broken in
two places and Pat Redmond was
badly .jut up. it seeniB, says the
Fort Steele Pro pector, that before going to dinner several shots were tired
in the bottom of the shaft, the report
from which was distinctly beard. After dinner Henrietta and Redmond
went down tho shaft tn resume work.
Noticing one hole which bad apparently shot without breaking rook they
concluded to ;drill Jt deeper when an
explosion took place, with the result
mentioned. The full extent of Henrietta's injuries woie not ascer'ained, as
it is possih'e he may ho injt.red internally He wus laken to Kiutherly, a
distance of 2J^ miles, on a stretcher
and Dr. King of Cranhrook wbb called.
Redmond was not badly hurt, feuper-
intendeni Houghton did everything in
'its power for the sufferers Both men
wero old miners but supptsing the hole
had shot did not lest it ns is enstont-
nry. One theory advanced by nu oltl
mine* is that one of the shots blew the
collar nnd primer, from the other and
the report was the same as though the
shot hail gone off although under snch
circumstances the report is sharper
than ordinary.

A Large Increase to the  Capacity  for

The manager of the smelter has given orders for the excavation to be

will bo for the special purpose of de-
Btilpherifling lead ores and matte. Of
course it will be some little time before the roaster is ready for work (tbe
length is over 120 feet long) but the
news is encouraging as it means a
greatly iucreased oapacity for treating
the lead ores of the distriot.
THE CRITICS ON GODFREY.
Of Lieutenant Dan Godfrey and his
glorious British Guards Band, wbo
arrive here next month, the critics of
the United States have added to the
laurels of praise tbe oonduotor of Her
Majesty's Grenadier Guards has
gainod in England. "Undoubtedly
the finest Kthat has visited the city,"
was the comment of Mr Henderson,
tho nri'ioof the ',N. Y. Times. '"It
is really admirable, ' said Mr. Kroh-
blel, Of the Tribune. "Au unalloyed
joy," was the eulogium of the N. Y.
Sun. "In bund concerts they have
roaohed the pinnacle of excellence,"
said tbe Washington Post, the paper
after which Sousa named his first famous maroh, and when Lieut. Godfrey
played tbis number at the capital, the
Post itself said : "Never bave Ameri.
cans b eard the 'Washington Post,
played iu suoh a masterful fashion"
Boston, critical Boston, went into
similar raptures over the British
Guards' musio. "They electrified the
audience," fluid the Globe "hearts
enptured," was the Herald's headline.
"Practically flawless," remarked the
Transcript. In Buffalo, where band
music reoeives high appreciation the
Oonrier's Critic said "With due appreciation of the many splendid orgauiza
tions iu this country and elfiewhero, it
may he stated that Liout. Godfrey fl

WORK OF DEVELOPMENT
What is Being Done on the Two Oaitn".
The Latest News from the
Ym:r Camp.
One of the most promising properties
in tan Lemon creek in the Alexandra-
Del ley which is "situated ou the J second north fork of that important
oreek. It'is owned by rhe Alexandra-
Delley Mining & Milling Company
which has its office in Nelson, U.
Audersou of Rosalia, Wash, is president of the company aud Ralston Me-
Caig, also of Rosalia, is secretary. P.
E. Seelye is the manager aud representative of tho company iu Nelson.
He is a miner of twelve years experience and daring that time has worked in most of the raining distircts on
the oontinent from Alaska to the
southern states. The members of the
company have taken uearly all the
stock and very little has been offered
to the publio.
There are two claims in the group,
the Alexandra and the Delley. They
were located in lh!J(i and were pur-
ohased by a member of the present
company in 18117, and were
Crown Granted in 1KII8. Although
in the Slocan district tbe mine is be
ing operated from Nelson as the wagon
load built by the Uro company term!
untos within V.-,. miles of it. A wagon road for this distance can easily
be bnilt to the Alexandra at very little expense and the compauy intend
doing this work in the near future.
A new and large cabin will be erected
at once to provide comfortable winter
quarters for the meu. A blacksmith
shop will also be among this fall's improvements
A representative of The Miner visited the property this   week   anl   found
that tbere   had   bimn   a   HOfnot  shaft
sunk on the ledge.    A tunnel of 356 feet
bas been run   on   the ledge and   when
in iiOO  feet will he nnder the  shaft at
a depth of   2!I0   feet.    Mr. Seelye  did
not   expect to strike the oro chute 1111
til the tunnel was under the shaft   but
much to his delight it was struck at  a
distance of 240   feet from the mouth of
the tunnel or HO  feet  before tbe  utta't
is reached   The   first   ore struck   consisted of ihree stringers,each about four
inohes wide,whuh assayed   $50 to   the
ton iu silver,   lead   and   gold.    As the
tunnel progressed   more   stringers appeared until they now number about a
dozen which   if   put   together   would
make a body of about two feet of solid
ore.    The character   of   the   ore     has
ohwnged from a lead galena to a  steel
galena.    While   no   assay has   as  yet
heen|made from the latest ore fount', in
the tunnel Mr. Seelye is satisfied  that
it will go  much   higher  than  $50   as
it improves in   value   i s they   go   in.
Every "hot adds very much to the   appearance of the   mine and there is   no
doubt that within a few days   a   large
body of ore will be opened up.
Where they started on it the ledge
was five feet in width and now it has
increased to night feet, with talo oi
both walls. The Miner's representative
found two well defined walls moiling
the full length of the tunnel. Good
ledge matter was 30ntinnous until the
ore chute wns struck. An examination
of the face of tho tunnel wns made after the 12 o'clock shot. All through
tho face stringers of galena were in
evidence. The galena is mixed all
through white quartz averaging eight
feet in width. The talc oo both walls
iu richly mineralized and the whole
showing indi ates that a large ore body
will be struck very shortly.
The ore is taken from the tunnel on
�� car and dumped at the mouth where
tbere is a splendid natural dumping
ground.
The it aft was next examined. It is
0x7 feet and shows mineral nil the way
from the surface, running from nine
to IK inches of solid oro which assays
from $75 to $;',7s in gold, silver nnd
lend. No work is being done on the
���haft now but as soon as the tunnel
gets beneath it an upraise will he made
to supply air. In .valking over the
two claims the ctoppiugs wero observed lor l.dOOJfeet nnd the test holes
show from one to three feet of mineralized quartz. There are a dozen of
these test holes and the oroppiugs are
uniform throughout. The vein crosscuts till the formations which goes to
show that it is a   true fissure.
All in all the properties give promise of developing into an exceptionally
rich mino aud consequently tho outlook for tho owners is a very rosy one.
Mr. Seelye has shown himself a to be
a oapable manager. He has opened
the.'property in a very economical manner. Everv dollar has been spent
where it could do tho most good and
he has proved the property in a way
that, has been highly satisfactory to his
directors.
JShipoiug will commenci this winter. Arrangements will be made to
havo tho ore treated at the Oro mill
���whiob is situated only three miles
from tho mine. Mr. Seelye's scheme
of development includes running a
lower runnel to tap the ledge at a
depth of n thousand feet No hotter
tunnel sites could be had than those
provided by the hill iu which the
mine is located. Plenty of water ami
timber are conveniences of which tho
mine can boast. Five men nre at present at work hut the stuff will be lurgely
increased in rhe ne'ir future. Mr.
Seelye has some specimens of tho ore
from the Alexnudra in his Nelson
office nnd wonld to pleased to show
them to anyone who wishes to be cou-
Ymir, August 15 ���(Special) ���Messrs.
English ic linker have just returned
from Copper Camp which is situated
at the heal of Priest river They
reached Vmir by way of lhe Sheen
creek trail. They brought out with
them some maguificent Bpeoiraens
from their property. They nre interested in eleven claims and each shows
grey '-upper and galena ledges. The
ledges run ail the way front four to
six feet in width aud curry values
ranging from Kill to 400 onuces of silver, from nine to 15 per cent, cop
per. niid."cold_nll the way from $7 up
to $10. They"have held these claims
���once 1895 aud have done considerable
work on them. The formation is serpentine and granite and in nearly
every instance the ledges nre contacts
hetween tbvse formations The nearest
point from the pr ip'-rty lo transporta
tion is Rykert which is IS miles away.
They maintain that that particular
section is the best copner camp yet
found in British Columbia. There
are some 800 claims located on the divide of tho river and ore fiom some of
the properties can 1)3 obtained that
will mn -15 per cent, crpper. McMillan Bros , who are managing Ihe Lou-
dou & Rossland Goltl Mining Company
nre interested in tbat country.
A. Hughes reports that the character
of ore from his piop-rty, Silver Lake
group, i�� improving. The specimens
which he bought iu would indicate
more gold and less lead value than
heretofore. The mineral body is three
feet wide with two feet of quartz fairly
well mineralized He has gone back
to work on the Montreal which adjoins Ibis group on the south, from
this properly he has souii very fine mineral,which runs well in gold.
"The whistle of the'Lako Shore air
compressor will be heard about next
Tuesday morning," said Manager J.
C. Drewry last evening. "The delay
in getting the machinery in place bns
heeu somewhat longer than we anticipated, bnt now everything is in readiness to commence operating the mine
is a systematic manner." This week
the plant wns enclosed in a good sized
hnilding with a corrugated iron roof,
and the flume nnd the water tanks wero
completed. Carpenters are now work-
rig on the ore bin near the railway,
and finishing tbe long trestle leading
thereto.���Moyie Leader

president of the Oonnoil of Ministers

stories that the minister intends to resign are withont foundation. He

VERY   INDIFFERENT    CRICKET.
Montreal, Que., Aug. 15.--Tho Bol-

day'sjmatch with the Montreal Cricket
Club. Tho cricket was not particularly good, the features being the hatting of Cregar of the Bel mon tn, who
scored 30,and the bowing of Montreal,
eight wickets for ilH runs. Watson 1!)
and Leaoh 10, both of the Belmonts,
were the only other donblo figure
scores. Montreal was retired in tne
first for 47 while Belmont only got together H2. In Montreals' second innings two wickets bnd fallen for 24,

Chicago, His., Aug.   IB.���Tomorrow
the Erie Railway will announce a rale
of $1(1.BO for the round trip between
Chicago and New York. The stand
art! one way rate being |3, Iho rate
to he made by tho Erie is. therefore,
less than a single fare. At the same
timo corresponding rates will bo made
from all Intermediate points to New

tho action ot tho Erie will stir up the
liveliest kind of a fight on rut��s between Chicago and New York.
