LABORI RETURNS TO
THE COURT AT REUS
President   and   Prisoner's
Counsel Disagree-
HOPE   FOR    DREYFUS.
The Wounded Advocate Enthusiastically
Reoeived.���Mercier  Declines
to Answer.
I to take necessary measures to obtain
desired information.
The next point was made hy Dreyfns
in his reply to Major Rollin. The latter had remarked that nil prisoneis papers were seized when hiH ronn. was
searched in 1894 aud Ool. Jonast said
certain papers from his text book,
"The School of War,"wero found
missing.
Tc this tho prisoner retorted: 'Not
in 1894, my colonel. "
Tbis eausod sensation as the obvic s
interpretation was that the pageB
were torn ont at the war office aud tho
fact was used ugainst him as an insinuation that he bad communicated
missing pages to foreign agents.
Ileum's, 22.��� Today was Maitie La-
bori's fay at tbe Lycee where Captain
Alfred Dreyfns is standing bis trial on
a charge of treason. He was the central figure of the scene as tbe Dreyfns
drama unrolled before a crowded court
this afternoon, bis Viking like form,
draped in a long black gown, bordered
with ermine fitting in front of tbe foot
lights, was the magnet whioh from
the moment tlie em-tain was rung up
until it fell at noon drew all regards,
not merely glances of curiosity, bnt tbe
sternly gaze of admiration. His mere
presenoe trougbt brightness into the
mint room and fresh light into the
proceedings.
Labori did what people had expected.
Ho galvanized the dormant defence
into an active living thing. Maitre
DemniiRO win conciliatory. He has
seemed to fear to tr��ad on the military
oom. Labori is a gladiator and always
speaks to touch his foe to the quick.
Let there le tbe slightest opening in
his i pponents defence and he thrusts
Inane.
Todny when Maitre Demange found
nothing tn ask a witness, Maitro La-
bori's quick eyo hnd discovered weak
spots and he came forward with
searchiug questions. He opened today
with an eloquent speech and the audience could have listened for an hour
to his rich voice. The excitement
under which lie labored see 1 ed to net
as a stimulant although many friends,
noling Ilin flushed face, feared there
might be a relapse. So far from this
being the case he was able to go for n
drive wilh his wife in an autocar this
afternoon and on Mb return he held a
reception, afterwards spending the
time until dinner in going over evidence and preparing for tomorrow.
Tlio scurrilous tactics of the nnti-
Dreyfusard newspapers may be illustrated by a paragraph appearing in
their organ here this evening declaring that the attack on Labori, which
it insinuates did very little barm, was
male solely to arouse tho pity of the
people of Renues for the lamentable
lot of an escaped convict from Devil's
Island.
Rennes, Aug. 32. -Maitre Labori
nvjs present nt conrt this morning
when the trial began at 6:80. The arrival of M. Labori at the I.ycee was a
signal for Bcenes of extraordinary enthusiasm.
A carriago containing Lnbori, his
wife and physicians drove up nnd the
crowd about the building rushed up to
the carriago to greet tho distinguished
lawyer. As ho entered the court room
the audience greeted him by standing.
Dreyfns eutered the court room soon
after, saluting the judges in usual
manner, turned to Labori with out
stretched hands and a smile of pleasure
lighted up his pale and usually impassive features. Col. Jouast next read
from u paper an address to Labori,
the tone of tho president being quite
sympathetic. The lawyer made an
impassioned reply. The first witness
today was M Grouier, former prefect of
Belfort His testimouy resulted favorable to Dreyfns, inasmuch as his deposition was distinctly hostile to Esterhazy. Major Rollin, of the intelligence
department ��� was nBked during the
course of his testimony by M. Labori,

Hamburg, Aug. 22.���Tho Han-burg
isehe correspondent, discussing the
assertion tbat Germany shonld publish
certain documents proving the innocence nf Dreyfus says: "The nuswer
to ibis is that documents of this nature can not be produced for the reason, that Omany never had anything
lo do with Capt. Dreyfns."

Greenwood, Aug. 20-W. S. Keith,
of Keith & Ketc.hnm, has returned
from Copper Creek, on the main fork
of the Kettle with J. Edward Leckic
and Ronald Harris, M. E., who went

Thev report the   country looking Well.
A large number of prospectors arc on
the trail going up the river to the new

across the river to the southwest.
At West Bridge, where a large number of prospectors are camped, some
are going up the main river and some
up the west fork. While the party
were there they   heard of a big   strike
of quarts carrying copper pyrites on
Cranberry creek and another on Boomerang oreek on the west  fork, the bit -
I ter being a bluish white quartz currying iron pyrites and galena.    Both the
i west fork and the   main river nre   ex-
1 periencing a boom, and another year.
Mr, Keith   says,    will  put   these two
j places among the rioh mineral camps
of the Boundary country.
Londou, Aiig. 28.��� The Johannesburg correspondent cf the Daily Mail
says the situation hero is all the more
alarming on account of tbo sreneral
stagnation of trade which causes acute
distress to the small storekeepers and
thoir employees.
Capetown, Aug. 23.���In the Cape
assembly today, Mr. Cecil Rhodes, referring to the Transvaal questions
said: "No, there will bono bloodshed. President Kruger like a sensible man will climb down. The less
the Cape Colony is concerned in the
quarrel the better."
Continuing Mr. Rhodes said it was
certain that the Transvaal would become an English speaking community
and tho Uitlanders, being in a vast
majority,* would form a Government
in keeping with their views. He expressed thejjhope that the settlement
would be fair nud that the Cape Colony would let tbo Imperial Government deal with that matter also It
is rumored here that the Boers intend
to attempt a coup to obtain forcible
possession of the ammunition detained
by the Portuguese.
Pretoria, Aug. 22.���Official circles
at present regard the situation as
lending to improvement. The amr.iu
nition consigned to the South Afrinau
Republic is still detained by "the Portuguese authorri'ies in Delagoa Bay.
The field cornets', aro busy distributing
mausers and ammunition to the burghers. Tbo exodus of miners continues.
The Government of tbe Transvaal
has received a communication from the
Governor of Lorenzo Martinique relat ���
ing to the stoppage of arms there to
the effect that Portugal's obligation to
all nations including Great Britain required the enforcement of the Transvaal-Portuguese treaty. Tha Transvaal Government regards the com ���
inuiiicatiou ns "Extremely vague. " It
is ascertained ou the highest authority that no definite reply has been sent
to the proposal of the British Secretary of State for the Colonies, Joseph
Chamberlaiu, to submit to a joint commission of inquiry the effect upon the
Uitlanders of the recent franchise reforms. The precise situation is thnt as
a result of the pourparlers a eomraun-
cation was dispatched yesterday to Sir
Alfred Milner, the British High Commissioner in South Africa and Governor of Cape Colony which embodies
certain alternative proposals. For various reasons these are kept secret, but
it is belioved they will admit of the
conclusion of n modus Vivendi.
It is understood from unofficial
sources of information that the alternative proposals of tbe TranBvaul Government are for a five year's franchise
and a one fifth representation of the
Uitlanders in the first Raad, provided
the Imperial Government does not further interfere in the affairs rt the
Transvaal,
Capetown, Aug. 21.���The report that
the Transvaal Government has handed
its reply to the British agent at Pretoria to be forwarded to Sir Alfred
Milner, the British high commissioner
Ior South Afri a and Governor of Cape
Colony is confirmed. It is believed
the proposition of Great Britain for a
joint commission to investiagte the
effect which the franchise reform
legislation would have on the Uitlanders has not been accepted, but that the
necessary proposals have been advanced.
London, Aug. 21.���The colonial
office in confirmation of the dispath
from Capetown saying the Transvaal
Government has handed its reply to
the British agent at Pretoria says that
Sir Alfred Milner has telegraphed a
message to that effect. All the officials
of the colonial office would say in regard to the matter is that the reply-
is not a complete acceptance of the
proposal of Secretary of Oolonies'Cham-
bcrlain.
Kingston, Ja.. Aug. 22.���The Jamaican Government has offered a contingent of three hundred native militia
for tho suoport of the white troops ordered hence for service in the Trans.

A NEW EXPERIENCE.
Emperor William is Boldly Defied by
His Subjects for the First Time.
Berlin, Aug. 21.���The newspapers
of this city recognize the fact that the
rejection by the diet of the canal bill
marks an epoch in the political history
of the country and points out that the
conservatives for the first time since
the formation of the Empire have
openly defied their sovereign. The
question of the disolutlon of the diet as
a result of the defeat of the canal bill
is much talked about but such a step
is not likely until the upper house has
approved tho new oivil code.
Opinion is much divided as to what
Emperor William may do in the matter, many persons believing the ministry will resign and their resignations will be ac.oepted.

BLACKSTOCK'S DENIAL-
One of the War Ei;le Ownors Give3 The
Miner an  Emphatic Contradiction of Eepo.ts.
As far as can be learned Rossland
is very muchugifeited and indignant at
the wiirlikjsywHpatoh Bent out from
there prophesying an early strike of
miners and stating that a carload of
rifles and two machine guns had
arrived to prevent trouble with the
men. Most people who read the report would regard it as a joke bnt it is
rather a por one nnd the Rossland
people are losing uo time in ^denying
it. A repoit was received'from Rossland by The Miner hVj the effect that
tbe men on the War Eagle had been
ordered out by the Union.
T. G. Blackstook, one of the owners
of the War Eagle happened to lx�� in
Nelson when tbe report was received .
and The Miner questioned him as* to
tlie '^truthfulness of the report. Mr.
Blackstook said that be could not imagine where such a"J story originated as
there was absolutely no truth in it.
He could conceive uo reason why the
n en should want to strike and at all
events the officials of the company had
no intimation whatever of any impending trouble. If there was anything iu the wind he would have heard
of it Mr. Blackstook left for the.
St Eugene mine last evening and will
be in East Kootenay a week or ten
days.
The attention <} Mayor Goodovo
was called to tho si is tijiinl telegrams
in the Eastern pa] er-'. one of which
was reproduced in 1 sn clumns yesterday, and he wired as follows to the
papers which publis' el   them;
"No truth in y< ur special under
date of August 1 til li ie trouble between
lniuo owners nnd miners. Mine owners and men are on most friendly
terms. Eight hour law does not affect
us and no trouble of any kind is an-
itoipated. Kindly give denial prominence. "
THE TOURISTS RETURN.
Nelson Lacrosse   Team   Arrived From
the Coast Last Night.
The members of the Nelson Lnorosse
team returned last night from tho Ooaai
where tbey did not win many matches
but where they made a host of friends
by their gentlemanly and sportsmanlike conduct. Tbe unfortunate break of
the manager in airing in the publio
press any difference of opinion whioh
he had with the Victoria team ie the
only annoying feature in connection
with tbe tour. When a dispute of
that kiud cannot be settled privately it
is much the better oonrse to leave it
unsettled. If Nelson did not get all
the money that was coming the sum
offered should have been returned and
nothing said about it. However, ho
players express themselves", as perfectly
satisfied with the treatment all along
the line and Victoria can rest assured
that, there are no"hard feelings"on (he
part of Nelson.
In referring to Saturday's game The
Province of Vancouver says The Nelson laorossa team finished its coast.tour
ou Saturday by playing New Westminster. A win was out of tbe question, but tbe score of i) to 0 is higher
thau tho relative merits of the teams
would warrant. Last week the visitors played two hard games, and the
effect wus clearly visible in the l��Bt
game. None of thom had any life or
vim. The parson was the solitary ex-
ceptiou and his individual brilliance
was eaBily the feature of Nelson'-
gume. Tlie Royal City team's homy
simply outclassed the defence oppose
ing them ; to such an extent wsb this
noticeable that towards the last tho
ball would get into a Westminster
stick because the Nelson players were
too disheartened to attempt to oheok.
Now that all the games have been played it .ooy be said that the Nelsou team
as it stands today could not make
much impression on the coast without
ut least six mouths' coaching in the
principles that go to make up nnxlerii
as opposed to old-style lacrosse. Their
defence linn have not got the right
idea of how to feed the home anil
their home men had never seen an up-
to-date home nt work until Vancouver
was reached. From the outset it waa
seen that Nelson hadn't a tithe of
the sjieed necessary to do anything
with tbo coast champions and the nine
games wero comparatively featureless
and commonplace. There is one thing
however that can be said of the Nelsons
and that is that they are all thoroughly
gentlemanly players and the team gave
tho const teams some valuable pointers
mi how tn play tho gaino with unnecessary roughness. NELSOtN  DAILY  MINER, WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 2:,,  1899.

GROWING WORSE.
It is doubtful if at any time or any
where in tho Dominion there lias existed a political Bitnotiou in every respect so peculiar and unsatisfactory as
that which prevai's today in British
Columbia, In th' estimation of a

of his office. The people generally
have regarded these as sufficient reasons,
and with remarkable unanimity approve the action of the Premier in
forcing his resignation. But the Finance Minister is charged with offences
in comparison with which these are almost innocence itself. The charge] are

The real reason why Mr. Henderson
was not opposed in New Westminster,
was no doubt the fear that he could
nor be defeated. The Government
is going to pieces through inherent
weakness, incapacity, and corruption;
y.it. notwithstanding, the electors of
that constituency wore too tickled over
the idea of having a representative in
the Cabinet to square thernsevles with
public .sentiment. Defeat would have
hastened the end, no doubt; but that
end is in sight, and the delay means
nothing worse than the prolongation if
the grave political scandal whose
shadow now envelopes tbe Province.

ation might have the appearance of be
ing authorised, He is further charged
with having divulged the secrets of the
Council, in violation of hiB oath. This
latter may be small affair, Political
morality has got so low in this Province
that tho mere violation of an oath will
fail to excite more than momentary interest. But the forgerv which alters
the sense and intent of a minutn of
Council is much too serious a matter
to be disposed of with a shrug. If is
quite true that Mr. Martin's charge,
however precise and circumstantial in
oharaoter, does not of itself establish
the truth of it ; and Mr. Cotton may
claim, in accordance with that good
old British principle, tbat he has a
right to be regarded as Innocent until
the contrary is proven.
That principle would apply, and we
should all fir I ourselves bound by it, j
if it were ] ur ily a iirivnt.- or personal
matter, affecting only Mr. Cotton's I
oharaoter as an individual member of
tho community It concerns, however, his character as a Minister of the
Crown, and affects,not his personal representation only, but his conduct of
those public affairs which aro entrusted to his control. It bas to do, not
with Mr. Cotton tho Individual, hm
with Mr. Cotton the Minister ; not with
Mr. Cotton's private affairs, hut with
the larger affairs of the Province in
which all havo a stake and in which
all are supposed to take a deep interest. If the charge wero without foundation it was Mr. Cotton's duty to
the people of British Columbia, whose
servant he is, to have tho fact, established at once and to the satisfaction of
the public, Tbis he has not done. So
far he has ignored it. No man ever
lived who could afford to ignore a
<��� barge of that nature. Meu of tbe
most illustrious character, failing to
ropel it with scorn, would sink under
it. Mr. Cotton must realise that he
is not superior to this necessity. What,
then, is to be thought of his silence?
If be declines to clear himself, or
cannol clear himself, it Incomes Mr.
Hemlin's duty to relieve him of his
portfolio. Failing this, for the honor
nnd good name of the Province the

THE OITY FATSEE'.
Da gfl:oaa Sidewalks Beqain  Attention
. -lrop-sed  St eplecliasj   on
the City Wharf.
[, i��� a well known fact Unit, tbe pres-
ont City Council   n.rve   mnde  a vast
immber of improvements during  their
tenure  of office.    Side walks,   streets,
BfwMS. witter arid eleotrio  light  construction have eaten a large hole io (he
Pitv funds.    The money raised by   the
aai��� of the Oity  debentures  has not
Leu anffloiOllt to meet nil expenses nnd
revenue  bas  therefore    been   largely
drawn ou.   And  yet   in Bnite of all
,l���.s,.    praiseworthy     exertions   there
hnve beeu n number  of  growls lately
��i0ut tbe state of  the Bidewnlks mid
yesterday The Miner wns uskefl by one
or two ""Old   timers"   to point out a
lew defects whioh a very  small outlay
ou tho pnrt of the City wonld remedy.
When new sidewalks are built it fre-
ii'.ieinly  happens  that   the  elevation
from the street is  considerable,   varying of course in different   places    For
instance Hie uew side witlkon Victoiia
street,   from   Dr.    Arthur's  house   to
tho Opera   House   is  iu   places   some
six I'cet above the road.    Tbe sidewalk
from   the  hospital  which   passes Mr,
Mnlone's  lesidenoe   is   in   one  place
newly   80 feet   high.    These   uro  bnt
instances  among   mnny   which   were
mentioned to Tbe Minor,    Tbe trouble
is tlmt there is  no protective rail  in
tbcsu lofty and high places      When   a
new  sidewalk is built, it  would   cost
about ?'i(' to erect a side rail in  places
where  the   elevation   is  considerably
above that, of tho road.
AKain nt the corner of Wnr.d and
Carbonate streets the side wulk, opposite Mr. Q. 0, Taylor's resilience, ends
abruptly. Tbo aro 'ights have recently
heen out off anil the to.vn is practically i" darkness. Of course we onp,ht
to inive warm moonlight summer
nighte; bnt then these are"raraenves"
in this bestial climate. The ruin makes
the wiwlen platforms exoeedinslv
slippery and it is more than probable
that sonic nnfovtiiimte citizen, though
lie be as sober as au uldcrmuu, may
sonic ni^ht take n bender off one of
these inconvenient precipices or descend rapidly down the blind trap in
Ward street. It is nn the curds, tin
that tbe damaged pedestrian may then
trouble tbe Oity with clnims i'ov personal injuries ouTruinnting in legal '
proceedings. And yet. for something
under $100 tins undesirable trouble
can l��' liveried,
Stanley street sidewulk now beasts a
hand rail, only nnf rtnnately the
Banie is broken in two of tho worst

Another citizen wns bemoaning to
Thi' Miner tbe present state of tho
wharf. He says tbat bo saw horses
actually unitping the boles in the
plunks there yesterday In faot, being
ii spurtiiw tnm of mind, be Bnggosted
thai the Oity should eel up n young
"(���ran I National'' r.n lhe wharf, nud
use t ie i l'ocoods of the "gate money"'
for repairs to tbo said wharf. It is
believed that the Oity now own the
wharf. Htvf an hours work by a couple ni' poud carpenters would suffice to
make temporary repn'r of the existing
"water juinps. "
Doubtless the wet woather is conducive to grnrabling but there are some
"ulil tuners' who excel! in that
quality.
"The Oity will put off repairing the
whan' r.ntil an accident happens mid
then, nfter paying a thousand or so by
way of damages, will set to work to
'nuke good the defects whereas a few
dollars judiciously expended now
would prevent the occurr. noo of accidents, " said   one.
This may bn ruber a severe stricture on the Oity authorities but tbo

Nelson, tor Kaslo.    The wharf is built
in the   form   of   a large scow   with a
sijuure stern.    At the rear   is erected a
fifty foot frame building to serve ns la

by three friends who will nlso enjoy
Hie hospitality of tho captain, The object of the visit iK thus set forth in the
Hossland Miner:
If Thomas Hums had known ns much
about Rossland ways two weeks ago,
(is le) has since ioirnoil, ho would
certainly have given this oity a wide
berth, Thomas is the imitation den-
li-riiilo who, on August H, held up the
bartenders in Steve Garnham's oirous
(lay emit 'en, realised some *li and put
the bonnrtnrv line between himself
mid the scene of his exploit,. Chief Ingram went down to Northport a day
or two after and returned with tho re
doubtable Thomas, who made an effort
io hypnotize the Mayor and Magistrate
Kirknp into a belief in an nlihi that did
not stick together Ho wns oomniitted
for trial nnd yesterday appeared before Judge Spinks  Emerson and Luke,
the bartenders   who were   rolilied, had
no Hesitation in identifying Hums
ami after bearing the evidence arainst
the prisoner's companions, which
served to strengthen tho onse against
HnriiH, be was sentenced to in monibt
mpriH mmont at Nelson, with bird
labor.
The elinrges against Erank Lewis,
A. J Kelly and R, Peck were taken
up after lunch. These men were ebarg-

Promptly at flvi o'clock last Thuis-
day eyeuiug thi ritriim vras tunird in
and the first air compressor and tl.e
largest piece of mining machinery in
the whole of East Kootenay was sent
in motion, sayR the Movie Leader.
This was the starting cl' the Late
Shore air compressor plant, owned by
the Canadian (Ji 11 Kiel Is Syndicate i f
Toronto, that now has the Lake Shoe
mine, which is situated within a
stones throw of the principal street i f
Movie At Hve'oolock a large crowd
had gathered at the Lake Shore power
house at tlio fo t of Victoria street to
witness the starling of the new ma
cbiuery. J. C. Drewery,managing director of the c imii.iii.y, was at the
throttle, and Mrs. Foley, wife of Martin Foley, the foreman, was i.t the
whistle when the wheels were st-rfcl
in motion. Everything worked like a
charm, hi a few moments the machinery was shut down,and Mr. Drewery, turning to the audience snid :
"I christen this compressor plant the
Geroge Sumner, in honor of George
Sumner, chairman of the executive
committee of the Canadian Cold Fields
Syndicate, Limited, of Toronto.''
Refreshments and cigars were then
placed at the disposal of  those present.
The crowd then asuended the hill to
the No.:i tunnel of tho mino tn witness
the starting of the first machine drill
ever used ill East Kootenay.
Yesterday a foil force of miners was
put to work in the No. 1, 2, an I No.
ii tunnels. In the mine four eight hour
shifts are worKing and the two engineers on the air compressor will work
li hour shifts. Dan MoDongall, who
superintended the installing of tho
plant, is in oharge of tho compressor
���and he is ably assisted by D, K. McDonald, recently from Nova Scotia.
Both are exprrt engineers and machinists. Sunday will lie observed at the
Lake Shore mine, aud on that day
each week all operations will cease.
Thi short time in which it has taken
to get this machinery in operation is
simnly surprising It is only a feu-
weeks since J. C. Drewery took oharge
of this property, and today wo find
machinery installed, a fine office built,
and the mine equipped with all the
conveniences and appliances fmj working it on B large and systematic   scale.
Today three car men were added to
the force. On Monday several muckers
and ore sorters will he put to work
and ou that day regular shipments
will commence. Today there are 113
men on the pay roll of the Lake Shore
miuo, and bv next Saturday the number will be increased to at least 42.
Some 211 carpenters und laborers arc
now employed on the St. Eugene concentrator building, and I. L. Colo, tho
Superintendent, said yesterday that if
tho machinery arrived on time and
nothing unforeseen happened, tho work
would be completed in another month,
and six weeks nt the outside. Tin-
building is now all enclosed and arrangements are being made for putting
in the jigs. The Huntingdon mill
and ono of the crushers are in plnon,
and the remainder of the maobinery
can be installed immediately upon its
arrival.
Quite a fi roe is employed excavating
for the form lotion of the air compressor building.
This building will likely bo started
within tho next throe or four weeks.
This will be a ten drill plant and
will be fitted with two boilers. Tho
concentrator buildiug will be heated by
steam from the engine room of the
compressor building. All the derricks
for lhe St. Eugene tramway are np,
and the oables and buckets can be put
up us soon as the terminal at the concentrator is finished. 13. C. Riblct,
who has the contraot for doing this
work, arrived here from Nelson yesterday morning.
Messrs. Hughes and McMicken, uf
Seattle, have ipiit work on the Monte
zumii group in the Slocan, and handed
over tho property to Messrs. Byers,
Whittier and McLean, the trustees for
the creditors, Messrs. Hughes and
MoMioken have for the last IK   months
put op-money for development work on
the propertvwhieh has a favorable showing. They assert they were getting
but tiller, blunts for every   two   shifts,
instead of four as formerly, and the
work was rendered so comparatively
expensive that they were unwilling to
go on. Aside from the expenditure
of the owners Ihe property is about |60,-
(Kit) m debt. II. tins a completely eqolrj
ed concentrator, a win- tram to the
mine, steam power and drills at the
mini', a good showing of ore on tho
Montezuma and Vera Cruz, which nro
crown granted claims, nnd good sur
face prospects on two other extensions,
The following East Kootenay notes
nre from the Fort Steele Prospector:
Mr. Kellogg, superintendent of thn
North Star group of mines, has made
an examination nf the Kstclla group
of claims, which J are situated on
Tracy creek. Mr. Neil Macleod Curran
has an option on the property, which
he holds in tlie interest of eastern Canadian capitalist
N. A. Wallingor spent a couple of
days at the {property of the Lewis
Creek Mining Company on Tracy
creek this week. The work at present
consists in stripping the ledge to determine its extent. The sh
far is most encouraging
If all reports arc true the Tracy
creek district bids fair to be one of the
most important sections "of the   Port
Steele Mining Division The development of the JEstellu and Ihe rich ore
now beiug taken out'has led to increased activity on all of the properties.     There   arc   probably; more* men
engaged in actual development than in
any other tributary distriot,
2 Hon. (.1 E. Foster, one of the owners
of   the    Dibble   mines,|   willj   decide
what will  be dona with that property
upon his arrival at Fort Steele. Ibis expected here at an early day. It if
learned thai R. A. Kimptnn was so
well pleased with the returns from the
Dolphino ore shipped some time ago,
that ho is making preparations to
Hhip several car loads this fall.
JAssays made this week of ore from
the Brittle Silvel group gave the following   returns,   1)8.20  percent
per, 157% ounces Silver and  $12.81  in
gold.
Then- are ten men   working   on   the
development of the Tontine group.
Charles Mr Kay. who is a practical
mill man and prospector, believes ho
I has a group of coppor claims over ou

rivei, in East Kootenay, that can bo

gone cast to organize a company. Mr.
