Tenth Year
IN A BLAZE OF GLORY
Grand Success of Nelson's
Big Holiday.
THE   PRIZE   WINNERS
Complete Summary  of the Events That
Took Place on Saturday���The
Water   Display.
The celebration of Dominion Day in
tho year of grace one thousand eight
hundred und ninety nine has passed,
aud the verdict of tlioso who were fortunate enough to witness the samo in
Nelsou, B. 0., is unanimous, viz. : An
unqualified success.
It would seem that everyone had
united aud endeavored, either by pe.
euuiary assistance or sheer hard work
to show what the little Oity by the
shore of Kootenay Lako could do in tho
way of fitly commemorating that au-
apioioua occasion.
To tho clerk of tho weather no small
thanks are due. For ouon Nelsou wns
permitted to enjoy two days of unbroken sunshine though black clouds
hanging over the distant mountains
for a   time looked oininuous.
The sports commenced on Saturday
with the Drilling Coutest. This, as
being essentially an event of local interest, drew together a great crowd.
The winning team included Bums,
a powerful wielder of tbe hammer.
Every slrol... from tbi.i master of his
craft seemed to go home. The winners
of tlio second prize wero supposed to
bo proficient in upraise drilling and
several of their fanciers offered even
sums on their making the highest record iu that part of the performnaoe.
However, Burns   and   Stevenson   won
cnle the idea of such a traversty of a
raoo meeting as was witnessed on Saturday being hold in tho main streot of
tin town. Apparently thn close of the
century will carry away with it somo
of the prejudices that still remain
to hring the Oity to tho level of Ked
Dog or some such traditional western
town, for tho regatta drew a much
larger concourse than in previous years,
Tho competitors on .Saturday, with
tlio exception ol' the Slocan four, were
ull l.ical men, nevertheless they gave n
very fan- exhibition of rowing. The
International fours proved tho most
interesting and host contested event,
especially the first heat. Ireland suffer
od "another injustice" at tho hands
of tho Canadian crew though they
mado a bettor light than the Englishmen. The smelter hand suuuded exceedingly well on tho water; they have
made groat Improvement lately.
Oapt Troup, ever courteous, and ob
liging, was of groat assistance to the
oommittee, his launch being practically placed at thoir disposal. Mr. If.
Selous was a most energetic ollicial
starter and contributed largely to the
success of the regatta. Next year it
is to ho hoped that tho boat oluj will
rocoivo sufficient pecuniary aid trotn
the sports committee to enable
tliem to mako hotter arrangements for
tbe accommodation of the spectators.
Every available oruft in tho lako had
been requisitioned but there still remained a largo number who were not
atioat and who had to put up with
standing room on partially submerged
floats and rafts.
The baseball game was a hollow victory for Nelson, the Rossland team
making but a poor show.
In tbo evening oame tbo great ovent
of tbo celebration namely tho water
carnival. Thoso who had tho management of this portion of the programme
at first fearod that there wonld be
only a half hearted response to such
an innovation. It is truo, that there
wore ninuy who could, if thoy had
ciioseu, havo added to tho evening's
pageant. But those who joined forces
did so with so much zeal aud energy
that in spite of all obstacles iho enrm-
vnl was far boyond tho expectations
of tho most sanguine.
Many spectators from tho old
country who had witnessed the joyous evenings at Henley on tho last
night of the legatta and perhaps (Oan
adiiuis must pardon them) felt a littlo
homesick. It were hard to imagine
inoro   beautiful   scone.    The   harsh
hands down iii all three   tests.
The drilling appeared tno engross- a
ing for many to witness tho children's j rugged mountains lit up by the many
races. However, tho littlo ones had i colored lights seemed to lose their us-
their admirers. Then followed the 1 pal severity. Tho brilliant and tasto-

fireworks from the judges float and
from tho yacht "Mjtli" were entirely
successful.
It was a late hour when tho huppy
throng dispersed with peihaps jnst a
tinge of regret that the evening wus
all too soon spout.
There will be many in INolsouand iu
neighboring tuwns who will look forward to the celebration cf 11)00. And
to those of the n who are of good understanding, the trades procession, the
rogetta aud tho evening's water carnival will bo events of the greatest interest. Nolson has fittingly closed the
century with a programme which bus
never beon surpassed on any previous
Dominion Day. Rut this is nothing
to what tbe 20th century will witnoss.

Jennie B wns probably tho fastest
horse though she did not come in first
in the J4 mile. Unfortunately some
of the makera of bsta preferred to sacrifice true sport to the soidid Interest
of dollar bills, a fact which is not peculiar to Nelson.
The boat rncea were exceedingly
well attended; more especially by the
fair sex. It seemed a pity that the
magnifioont water course had not been
more extenaively utilized by the Oity.
If only a Bpeoial feature were made of
the regatta and inducements held out
to one or two crack oarsmen in the Dominion to attend the Oity would in the
long run materially boneflt by it.
There is no reason why Nelson should
not become the Henley of Oanada. Old
traditions die hard and it is difficult
for some to realise thnt Nelson is no
longer a mining camp hut is gradually
becoming a respeotable commercial
and residential Oity. The time is not
far distant when Nelsonians will ridi-
point of view.
Tlu award of the first prize was however undeniable. Oapt. and Mrs.
Troup were the life and soul of the
fete. Their launch, the Idler, was
quite iudespensiblo iu order that the
boats might bo drawn up in line and
paraded past the judges stand.
Moreover Oapt. Troup placed tho
steam tug Ymir nt the services of the
committee from which boat the smelter band played. The second prize was
given to Mr. Goerge Beer's boat whioh
had been artistically arrayed by Mes-
dames Beer, and McCulloch, and Miss
Delmage. The "Hebe" decorated by
Mr. McCammon and Miss MaoMillan
came third ; Mrs. Macdonald and Mrs.
Eskriggo dnssed in scarlet obtained
4th prize with the "Lulu" aud Mr
Day's imitation of a gondola was fifth.
Mr. Morley and Mrs  Goepel ran the
was in a great nieasno duo. They per.
f uully superintended ull arrangements
and provided the refreshments which
wero most dainty aud prettily gotten
up.
As the Kaslo boat pulled out when
tbe water carnival was at its height
the people ahoard cueerod themselves
hoarse to shusv their appreciation of
tho prog ram mo that had boeu planned
and SUO'.'LHsfully carried out.
Turner, Bee ton & Co. very thoughtfully supplied each outgoing train and
boat with some light liquid refreshment and any amount of cigars, thereby giving visitois to understand that
their departuro from Nelson did not
mean their giving up entirely Nelson
hospitality.
The dance proposed to be given at
the Opera House lust Saturday night
by iho Nelson Oily baud after the play
was finished did not come off. The
lato hour the company olosed at the
night before showed the baud that,
there would be little time left for
dancing ou Saturday night, so it was
concluded to cancel the arrangement.
The celebration which was opened
on Friday morning by an enthusiastic
team of horses ruuuiug away with
The Miner's tloat and "pyiug" several
pounds of type, closed yesterday morning wheu a man rolled out of Roisterer's wreoked tloat with a head about
as big as the cask that made up the
wagons' load and several other
people's.
Mr. Arthur Sherwood, ohairman
ot tho docoration committee, very
wisely put men to work lacejSaturduy
night to oollect all the Chinese lanterns that had made the streets so
beautiful and as a result tho City has
ou baud hundreds of these esseutiuls to
a successful illumination. All the bunting and (lugs were also placed in the
safekeeping of the City by Mr. Shor-
wood.
The Rosslaud contingent, left for
homo rather early on Saturday evening���too early to allow the visitors to
see the grand display on the lake.
Thoy marched from tho Phair headod
by their excellent band. In tbo procession wero sovoral banners on which
were printed words to the effeot thut
the Rosslanders had thoroughly enjoy-
ad themselves while in tne Queen Oity
of the Kootenays. Rossland certainly
repaid Nelson for the latter's assistance at last winter's carnival.
When the Old Timers "floated" by
in the Trades Procession ou Friday a
wag in the crowd remarked loudly
that there was a likelihood of the old
'uns being swamped by the newcomers. "That's true" remarked a stalwart pioueer, and bis powerful organ
of speeoh rang through the crowd,
"there's not many of tho old boys left;
but, by Jehosophat, they are smoking
Egyptian cigarattes while the Johnnie-
oome-latelies aro still puffing at Kini-
mikiuikl"
The Civic luuch on Saturday was a
more formal affair than on tho previous
day. Mayor Neelands in a few well
chosen words proposed the health of
the Quoen and of President MoKinley,
which toasts were drunk with tho
usual honors.and theu that of the visitors. The latter toast was responded
to by Dr. Doolittle who in an amusing speech gave a Bhort epitome of his
mining and gas ventures hero. Mayor
Pitts aud Aid. Kane followed the doo-
tor. The health of the mayor, the entertainment oommitee and the ladies
were nlso drunk, Aldermen Hillyer
und Kirkpatrick responding for the
oommittee,

NOTES.
The boating committee hava nothing
but words of praise for tho manner in
which Mr. George Hale lent his assistance in every way both afternoon
and evening.
Many remarks were made yesterday
as to Nelson's good luck in hp.ving such
good weather for the oelobration despite tho raiu both preceding aud following it.

ohoques, however, had a slight doubt
as to the value of his paper and accordingly a wire was sent through the local branch of the Imperial Bank to
the Montreal office.wbero it was loaru-
ed that the uame of tho signer was unknown. A warraut was sworn out

Nelson-Bedlington and the
0. P. R. Disagree.
A ROW IS ON AT KASLO
The 0. P. E. Prohibit Further Work on
Their Property, Kaslo-olocanHail-
way and the Wharf.
The first fonr miles of the Nelson
Bedliugton railway has almost been
oom ploted. In another three weeks
had it not been for au unforeseen interruption, the whole line would have
been constructed and ready for rail laying. Last week the new line had reached a point known as Lizzard creek���
which is about 12 miles south of Kus-
kanook���where the road is being constructed under the slope of the Crow's
Nest Pass line. Here it was that trouble arose. The land belonged to tbe
C. P. R. and they seemed to think
that irreparable injury was being done
to their embankment. Consequently
ou Woduesday, June 28, Mr. H. MoLeod, the superintendent of the
Crow's Nest Pass line, and Mr. McKenzie, the chief engineer for that division, went to Lizard creek and then
there ordered Messrs. Cowan & Co,
the contractors who have charge of the
Nelson Bedliugton construction to
at once cease work and depart.
Messrs. Cowan & Oo., did not forthwith obey but continued working;
thereupon the O. P. R. officials posted
up notices admouishing not only employers but also employees, not to work
thore and tnreatening battle, murder
and sudden death should they be
caught red handed.
This was too muoh for the workmen ;
thirty out of a gang of sixty at onoe
refused to risk life long incaroeration,
(they houostly believed tbey could be
imprisoued), and struck work. Then
Messrs. Cowan & Co., threw up
tho sponge, broke up tbo camp and returned to Nelson yesterday to await
further instructions.
It is impossible to say what the outcome will be but it savours like a soft
snap for tho lawyers.
Rumors are rife concerning the ereo-
tion of tho new wharf at Kaslo by the
C. P. R. It is said, by fairly oora-
petont authorities too, that tbe Kaslo
Slocau railway ohject to the new
wharf being built by the rival company. How tbey will stop them it is
difficult to see but at any rate it is
said that they are exerting tbeir utmost to do so. Tho Government will
possibly havo some say iu the matter
aud it is just possible tbat there will
bo more litigation. Though it was
annouueed authoritively that the recent friction had been smoothed down,
tho knowing ones ^hinted that there
was danger of the C. P. R. lion not
taking too kindly to tbe Kaslo Slocan
lamb. The evolution of this rumored
embroglio is awaited with interest.

A WORD FROM THE MINE MAKER
A correspondent   in   Nelson   contributes to The Loudon Empire Bomevery
seusibh remarks on mining in British
Columbia.    We otten hear it snid  tbat
tbe British   investor wants   a paying
mine, not a prospect   merely,   and   to
this is generally added   the  statement
that tbe prices   asked for a  developed
mine   are usually   so   large   that  tbe
country   is   injured    in   conseqnence.
This point  is incidentally touched   in
the remarks  referred to.    We quote  a
portion of the letter:   "Mmj  people,
having observed the steady increase iu
the mining   industry of   Bristiah   Columbia, are   d��sirous   of   acquiring  a
mioing   property.    But the   usual   requisition is:   "We must have a  property either actually   paying   dividends
or in a position to do so at once on our
taking   it  over.'     Now,   when   mine
owners possess such a property they are
not usually   anxious to sell it  just  as
they are about to reap the fruits of  ail
the work they bave done and the risks
they have   sustained in bringing their
property to the dividend paying stage.
Should they   be   induced to  sell, they
naturally look for a high price to cover
their expenditure on tbe property, pay
good interest on  tbe   capital  invested
during the   development   period,   and
also to recompense them for tbeir time
and risk.    This makes  a paying min*-
a somewhat costly purchase, and tends
to   its  being  over-capitalised.     Thus
what   would   have been a  very handsome profit assumes very meagre   proportions, owing to its   being   paid   on
too heavy a capital.
"British  Colnmbia needs   prospect-
ug and developi ng  syndicates, to buy
o- bond   'prospective'   mines,   develop
them sufficiently to  prove their value,
and then either sell them or form subsidiary companies to work them. Such
properties may be had cheap, and even
supposing that the first six out of seven
acquired   did not   prove   of   sufficient
value to warrant their being systematically worked, the  seventh   wonld,   if
successful, compensate  for all the loss
sustained on the previous six and leave
a  good  profit.    Bnt   witb   reasonable
intelligence in selection and due regard
to economy   in   working, there  is   no
reason why   the  first six should prove
failures.
"If no one has the courage to initiate the work and make a beginning,
where aro the paying mines to come
from? It is not unnatural that those
who, having acquired a virgin property in wbich they have faith, go to
work, and by careful and intelligent
development succeed in making tbeir
'prospect' into a paying mine, should
expect to make a large profit. That
profit ought to be much larger than if
they had allowed others to do the
work, and then, when the value of
the property had been practically assured, bought it from them
"Such a syndicato would not require
a heavy capital-say, roughly, ��40,000
oi ��60,000, which Bhould, if properly
and intelligently handled, be sufficient
to show a haudsome profit in the course
of one to two jearB���or less. Thete
are plenty of good 'showings,' which
fully merit tbe expenditure of a little
money to prove them���but people have
hitherto hesitated to take the initiative. ''
"Canada," says The London Empire, "maintains a costly emigration
department in London, but oue is
forced to the melujcholy conclusion
that this institution is practically a
failure. The women will not go to
what is, half the year, a desolate, frozen country." The Empire enjoys the
distinction tf being the ouly journal
remaining in Great Britain that de-
iighis to slaudei tbe Dominion.
Twenty years ago tbere were many of
them, but knowledge of the country
bas so spread that they were gradually
shamed into silence, and now they are
among the loudest in its praise. All
hut Tho Empire, whose editor knows
his Canada from much personal exper-
ence, and who is therefore open to the
suspicion cf beiug influeuced by some
malicious iuten*.

The movements of Mr. Turner are of
interest to British Columbians at this
time of political unrest, and the following from The Colonial Goldhelds
Gazette will hnve a special interest
in view of the rumors and speculations
that are so rife: "Mr J. H. Turner,
ex-Premier and Finance Minister of j
Britisn Columbia, does not intend to
return to the Province for some con-
"iderable time. Since Mr. Turner
was 'deposed' by Lieutenant-Governor
Mclunes he finds himself in a position
of 'greater freedom and less responsibility,' and is able to devote the whole
of his energies to the affairs of tbe
old-eBtablished trading compauy of
Turner, Eeeton and Co."

SOME  DISTRIOT  NOTES
We are afraid our excellent and well
meaning contemporary, The Daily Co
lumbian, will have to put The   Miner
dowu bb one of those who will not see,
.for ot course nothing  will convince it
that we  cauuot   see   if we   wish.    It
honeatly takes up the task of   exposing
the  iniquities  of  Turnerism.   which,
briefly   described,   were   sectionalism
and monopoly.    We have no doubt The
Columbian belitveB what it siys, and a
majority, or very nearly a majority, of
the electors probably agreed  with it  a
year ago.    But  tbat is not conclusive.
Because The Columbian thinks so does
not make   it   so; because  a   majority
may bave thought so does not  make it
bo.    A very large minority did not attribute these evils  to the late Government,   and there have been   examples
innumerable of   minorities,   being   in
the  right.    And The Miner can claim
witb better reason than The Columbian
can deny that the minority of   a  year
ago has  grown   into a  majority  that
���would appal  some people we  know if
it could   but   manifest  itself.     It  is
just as we Buspected ; this evil Turnerism, of wbiob so much has been said,
was simply a  question   of   policy  on
which honest e!eators   could   and  did
differ; that and edihing   more.    It  is
a matter of  controversy,   The  Columbian taking ono side and many,qnite as
honest, taking the other.    We thiuk it
would be better for tbe good sense and
The Trout Lake wagon road is reported to be 111 bad condition, the stage
rarely being able to eo off a walk.
Revelstoke will celebrate tbe Twelfth

The improvements to the Cody road

Five slide is avoided.
The Kaslo board of Trade has resolv
ed to take up at the Associated meeting of Kootenay hoards in August the
subjects, Lead Industry and County
Councils.
Tbere are only two patients in the
-Sandon hospital now; Simeon Rick-
aids with typhoid fever nnd Doc
Gleasou, both of whom have been in
for several weeks. Sixteen patients
have been treated during the past five
weeks.
Chief Dooh.n issued an edict yesterday commanding everyone to refrain
from doing business today. Such an
act is a credit to Lawrence's patriot
ism, but as no oue has been doing any
business in Sandon since the 1st of
June the warning was superfluous,
says the Sandon Paystreak.
The newly elected officers of the A.
O U. W., of Trail, are: Fast Master

According to the Trout Lake Topic,
it is tbe intention of tbe Canadian
Pacific Railway Company to build
only as far as the foot of Trout Lako
this fall and complete the Hue to Arrowhead next year. The line will pass
right through Trout Lake City, and
will run along the side of the lake,
which will be lowered live feet to make
a right of way.
A force of men has been at work the
past two weeks, under George Find-
lay, and have made marked changes'in
the road down the river trom Trail.
It has been cut and raised to an even
grade.and tbe big hill around the brick
yard is being done away with entirely. When completed, rbe road will
make a pleaBant place for driviug or
walking, and will he a great improvement for tha teamsters who havo had
to travel what was perhaps the worst
road in Kootenay.

Tim Lyceum Oompany Will Hay for the
Kootenay   lake   Qeneral
Hospital.
The Lyceum Oompany, wiiich placed
itHoif at tho dispoHul of tho oommittee
ill charge oaf tho cycle path during
the engagement hero n couple of
mouths an", will return for ono performance on Saturday evening next
ami this time will appear under the
aaspioes of the Kootenay Lake Qeneral
Hospital. The direotors of the hospital yodtordny completed arrangements
with tbe manager, Mr. Bblpman, and
it is confidently expected that a large
amount of money will be realized for
tbe building fund by the visit, ot the
oompany. It will be remembered that
the production of Shakespearian plays
: nd go id oamedlos by tbe Lyceum
Company greatly pleased the large
inidieiic.es flint nightly pothered in
the Opera House and another engagement hem would undoubtedly mean
another largo bouse. But with the
talents of tho Lyceum artists combined with the worthiness of the Oh-
jrrt- to ho benefited tbere can lie no
f'oubt that the Opera House will 1 e
filled to the doors. It is almost imperative that a new winp should lie
built to the hospital as it is now
and it cannot lie done without money.
Attendance at the Opera House "on
Saturday evening will provide an excellent evening's enjoyment and help to
rais.1 the amount necessary to make
tho hospital as completo as it should
be.
Thn piece selected is rhat Sterling
comedy "Jane" which has made two
continents laugh. It will be preceded
by two scenes from Hamlet. Mr.
Brougham is arranging for the attendance nf a first class orchestra which lie
will lead so tho intervals between the
acts will he far from monotonous,
The sale of seats will probably nom-
monoe today, and, if not, certainly tomorrow morning,
KOOTENAY    SPEOIAL    NUMBER..
It Will Probably he Ready Por Distribution   Tomorrow  Morning.
It is confidently expected that the
Speoial Kootenay Number of The Miner
will be ready for distribution tomorrow morning. Advance proof sheets
show that the edition will be the finest of its kind over produced iu the
Provinoe. Its sale will undonbtedly
be very larpo so those who havo not already done so, should leave their orders at The Miner olllco today. All
papers purohased at the counter will
be addressed and mailed freo of cost to
the purchaser. Leave the addresses and
ten cents for eaoh ono at tliis offloe and
thoro will be nothing more for yon to
do. Dealers should not fail to send
their orders in today so that the papers
mny bo delivered early tomorrow
morning,
If any unforeseen delay should npain
he caused the paper will certainly be
Oimilated on Thursday morning.
Board of Trade Council is called for
Wednesday evening when some decision on the subjects involved will be
arrived at.
IT WAS A   FALSE ALARM.
A Drowning Scare on the Lako Greatlv

On Sunday evening a rumor spread
abroad that a boat on the lake had
beon capsized and that soveral persons
had lir-nn   drowned.
Thero were over 50 enquiries at
Messrs. Elliot & Hale's boat houso during tho oveuiug and tho following
morning.
Ono gentleman stated tbat he hnd
scon a boat upsot opposite Squire's
Pointj about 7 p. m., and several ladies corroborated his story. Upon enquiry, however, it wns ascertained
that the boat in question did not actually capsize bnt that the sail aud mast
were blown out.
The passengers (two Ohinameu)
managed to cot the boat ashore without further disaster. Ono or two well
known citizens wero the reported victims. However, on Monday morning,
they woro seen rooeiving the congratulations of their friends and tho insurance agouts in tbe Btreet.

a NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY, JULY 4. ��%9-
All the Litigation Has Been
Finally Settled.
NOW FOR ACTIVE WORK
The Miner's Special  Windermere  Oorrt-
upondent Tells of the Mines in
Bis District,
It will be welcome news to those
interested in the Nelson mines to learn
that all the troublesome litigation
that has compelled the management
ot the Molly Gibson mine to cease
work on that promising property has
at last been fiually settled and that
nothing now bnt the labor trouble
stands in the way of active development
which will soon place the mine
among the prominent shippers of the
district. All day yesterday tbere was
a meeting of tbe Molly Gibson directors at the Phair. There were present:
M. Rut'us Pope, M. P., Hon. W. B.
Ives, M. P., Col. S. W. Rw, Mr.
Bruce White and Mr. W. C. Noble.
Under tbe decree of the court $18,-
iiUO has been placed in the bank to the
credit of W. L. Callauan, and this ridB
the company of all further [trouble
from that quarter. It was decided to
build a road and tramway at once an.1
to put a large force of men on as soon
as the 8-honr question had been sufficiently settled to allow the mine owners
to ascertain theii position. There are
several thousand tons of ore in sight
and the Molly Gibson will undoubtedly
prove itself to be one of the very richest mines in the Province, bo sanguine
are the direotors that this will be the
case that instead of asking for the re-
.urn in cash of the largo amounts of
money advanced by thoni to the company they took stock in payment.
Mr. Pope left last evening for Ottawa, Mr. Ives leaves this evening for
the Ooast and Ool. Ray departs tomorrow for the Boundary country.
��� ��   *
P. J. Smyth, editor of the Moyie
Leader, wns in town yesterday. He
stated that business was picking up in
Moyie, and prospects decidedly
brighter. On the concentrator for the
St. Eugene mine some twenty men are
employed.
Nearly the entire old force of the St.
Eugene are at work again, either doing contract or outside work. The
British Canadian Goldfields Co.,are going straight ahead in their work of
putting up a building for the 7-drill
air compressor on the Lake Shore mine.
As soon as it ib completed, about the
1st of August, work will be resumed
on the old workings, also on another
tunnel, which will be between the
present level and the lake, and will
be the lowest tunnel yet run. A four
foot ledge was struck.on the Aurora
group across the lake last Thursday on
the new workings.

Windermere, June 30.���W.G. Mitch -
ell-Innes, manager of the New Golden
Syndicate, intends expending a large
amount during the present season in
developing the different properties
owned by the company.
Development on a large scale has
been resumed on the Pretty Girl mine
ou Boulder creek, owned by the New
Golden B. 0. Syndicate.
Development work has been started
on the Red Line grounon ? large soale,

It is understood that work will be
resumed on tho Caretaker at an early
date.
The Sitting Bull group will be worked on a largo scale throughout the season. Tbis property is under bond to R.
R. Bruce, C. E., for $80,000],representing an Eastern syndicate.
Delphine is looking better than ever.
Tbis property has been worked contin
ually sinco last September, and it undoubtedly one of the most promising
mines in East Kootenay. Several shipments have nlready been made. There
is also a rumor of a large deal pending.
Large crcwds of prospectors are arriving daily from West Kootenay and
other parts of the Province.
Silver Hill group situated on Horse
Thief oreek is being developed hy West
& Washburn.
It is understood that the O. P. R.

Windermere mining distriot following
tho Kootenay River to Canal Flats,
thence down the west side of the Columbia lakes, tapping the principal
oreeks, to connect, with the Arrowhead
brunch via Toby creek,from the Lardo-
Duncan-Trout Lake country.
Starbiid, Collett & Robinson have
started   work  on thb White Elephant
group situated on McDonald creek, aud
iB ou tbe same lead as the Red Line,
and wus bonded from the original loca-
tots for $f)0,000. Development work
has been started on the Dividend
group, situated on Law Creek, This
property is under bond to Starbird,
Collett & Robinson, for $40,000.
