YMIR'S STRIKE
London  Gomments   on the
Discovery of Very Rich
Ore In Ymir Mine.
A. F. Rosenberger writes from Camborne, tbe new mining eamp on   Fish
DTPAQPQ!  TTTPM'1'761'  in the Lnrdo' tliat u,erB is
X Ll__lix~jJ-l~J    lXlJ-liVl 1 much   activity   in     mining     circles,
with a greut many people coming In.
Mr.' Rosenberger went up to Camborne in connection with the opening
up of the Oyster group of claims, in
which his syndicate is largely inter-
esten. There i�� a lot of prospecting
bein'�� done in the neighborhood of
the camp and seveial good finds have
been reported.

The 11. C. Review of London, publishes the following cablegram from
the Ymir company's representative at
Nelson: "Mine car sample, level No.
4, west of the dyke���Sample assays
gold 835, silver ."> per ton of 2,000
lbs. Represented width of 15 ft.
The average width of vein Is greater.''
In another place The Review says:
The cable from the Ymir mine which
wc publish this week is most satisfactory, .mil there is a marked impiove-
nient in the price of these shares.
This unexpected good fortune will be
the more appreciated by the shareholders from tho fact that thei.' hopes
have never been raised hy optimise
anticipations on the part of their di
rectors, who huve consistently con-
lined themselves to the most cautious
statement in regard to the future.
Of course,.until further details are to
hand, it is Impossible to calculate by
how much the value of the mine is
improved, but the bulk sample taken
right across a width of 1.1 feet showed
an average value o" 810 to the ton.
As the company has hitherto been
making a very handsome profit on SKI
ore, tbe earnings, as long as this
high grade ore chute exists, will be
more than quadrupled. If the attention of investors had been less drawn
to the iluctuations and conllicting reports concerning tho Le Roi, and ban
been bestowed on the steady progress and remunerative returns mado
by the Ymir, more confidence might
today be show in 11. C. mining ventures.
During the past week a few days of
hummer weather was experienced, but
the season is still extiemely backward, says the Lardeau Eagle. The
Incessant wet and cool weather is
keeping the snow above timber line
very deep, and in many places the
snow will likely remain on all season. The trails are in bad condition
in many places, which makes packing supplies to woiking properties
sooiuewhutj aiduous, though pack-
horse trains aie leaving town almost
daily. Work on the Cup, Nettie L.,
Ajux, Maybe, Lade, Triune,Comstock,
Sunset, Metropolitan, Little Robert,
Ruffled Grouse, and Old Gold proper-
tics is being steadily pushed along,
while many property owners are doing assessment and develop.ne.it
work, A good deal of new work
will be undertaken during the coming
month. Quite a few new locations
are being made, aud assay work is
becoming more brisk. The Lade

and a few men aie in tha district
looking for investment. Bui, taken altogether, and considering that wa
have a railway building to us the
camp is quiet, compared with what
it should bo, when our immense natural resources are so evident. Next
month, however, there should be
some change ln tbe situation. Between men coming in who are already
interested in the district, and new
comcis, things should pick up somewhat. Preparations are being maoe
for much larger ore shipments from
the older pioporties than ever before,
'f'be annual meeting of the Double
Eaijlo and Nettie L., people takes
place here todny; and the result may
mean much for Ferguson, as it Is
generally thought that over 100 men
will be placed at work on their properties. It will not be known what
the Cup people intend doing until
after their annual meeting in London
in September. Meanwhile the local
property owners are plugging along,
awaiting developments more than
anything else. Quite a number of
are   working   on     assessments
men
and trail and road work; the freighters all appear to be busy, and the
business and hotel men are living
to some extent on what is expected,
father than that trade whicli already
exists.
Mr. James Williams, foreman of the
Poorman mine, arrived in Nelson
yesterday from the St. Mary's'section
of East Kootenay, where he has been
doing assessment work on some of his
claims. Mr. Williams is not overly
impressed with the part of the country he visited, as he thinks it wil'. be
some time before it comes to the front.
He left last evening for the  Poorman.

Toronto, July 12.���Some !ioo women;
teachers, exasperated at the refusal
of the board of control to sanction the
sala-y increase proposed by the
school board in the spring, have
been trying to get their names on
the voters' list in order that at the
next election they could "get even"
with the aldermen. The assessors refused to put on their names, and tbey
are appealing to the court of revision
for assessment as joint tenants in the
houses they live iu. The court has
decided that they must pay rent directly to the landlord to be rated; as
tenants, and this decision bars out almost every one. A number of teachers
were before tbe court of revision
and did not conceal their opinion of
tbo horrid men who were baulking
them of their revenge.

"Nelson, 11. C, is considerably broken up over the severe defeat its lacrosse team sustained at the bands
of the representatives from Medicine
Hat," says the Seattle Post-In telligen-
cer. "The same may be said of tbe
big Eastern Canadian teams last fall
when they came in contact with the
word-beating aggregation from New
Westminster. Defeat in athletics is
not disgrace; if the right material is
there it simply calls for more determined effort. Nelson is a wideawake, progressive town, and the
best sign of its future success iu lacrosse is that it comes out frankly
and admits a defeat without whin
ing."
In the Quoit club button series, J.
U.Wallace and Chief Lillie played the
finals yesterday. Wallace defeated
Lillie with a score of 21 to 11, giving
him the gold button, Lillie getting
the silver button and Geo. Nunn the
bronze. In the club championship the
finals between Chief Lillie and W.
Telfoid were to nave been played last
evening but owing to Chief Lillie being late iu arriving on the ground
only one half was played, Hardie and
Irving defeating Nolan and J. Nunn
by a score of 31 to 39. giving Lillie's
team a lead of two points. The game
was very closely contested each side
tieing the score alternately until near
the finish when Chief Lillie's team
secured a small advantage] and hung
to it like a fly to a cask of molasses
About fifty spectators were on the
ground and the different plays were
loudly applauded. Haidie played a
star game, defeating his opponent, J.
Nunn by the big score of 18 to 10.
Editor of The Miner:
Sir,���I see by today's issue of your
paper that I was killed in Idaho. I
wish you would assure my friends
that I am alive and well ic Rossland
with good prospects of being in the
land of the living for sometime to
come; also that J mimic Burns is in
Spokane, 1 having received a telegram
from him today. lie never fought
in Han Francisco to my knowledge and
for myself I was never in California.
There certainly is a mistake somewhere. It must have been somebody
under the same name that was killed in accordance with your report, as
thero are several Lawlcrs and Burns
in the business.

Rossland, July 12, 1901.
It will not te the most scientific
game of baseball that has been seen
in Nelson, but tho one this afternoon
will afford a vaster amount of entertainment to all on the grounds excepting to the players themselves. The
Public Library, one of the most deserving of our locnl institutions, will
benefit from the gate receipts, and
this fact should insure a full stand of
spectators.
A   Monster   Celebration   of
British Columbia Lodges
Yesterday.
The Rowing Club has not quite
made up its mind whether to send a
crew to the regatta of tbe North Pacific Association of Amateur Oarsmen
at the Coast shortly. A crew will
certainly go if arrangements can be
made in the way of receiving leaves of
absence for tbe men and the necessary
amount for expenses. The club does
not hope to win any great lauiels
but wish to send the crew in order tc
strengthen Nelson's claim to next
year's regatta. To have 'this great
event take place on Nelson waters
would he a very good advertisement
for the city, whicli is generally supposed by the outside world to be a
wild town somewhere above the vegetation line. It is to be hoped that the
club will be successful in sending
the crew and securing the regatta.
The ex-Winnipeggcrs who challenged the ex-Moiitrealeis and ex-Toron-

Angling is in full swing and almost
daily some very good baskets are reported. Slocan Junction is, as ol
yore, a favorite resort, and the fish
are rising well. Many angleis are

One rod at Midge cieck on one day of
this week landed sixty-one trout that

certainly au Indication of tare spoit.
There is a general exodus of anglers

Bowling on the green   has   quickly
become very popular in Nelson.    Two
very good   greens have been   prepared
on thu government   gtounds and some
interesting   matches   are played every
evening.     Yesterday   the    following | adequate   and
two   rinks   wore pitted  against  each   balance.    As   all

A meeting of the finance committee
was culled last evening for the purpose of discussing the monthly accounts and to strike a rate for the
ensuing term. Owing lo there not
being a quorum no business was trans-
ated. Tho returns for the half year
have been completed by City Clerk
Strachan nnd although liie lull statement is nol to hand in tunc for publication the financial estimate is ample to indicate the condition of tbe
city The returns show a ciedit balance of about 80,000, but of this
amount provision has to be made for
public wo.'ks and other Hems of expenditure, and it is estimated that
the sum of 910,480.(18 will be required for the balance of tlie year's disbursements; that is, for the ordinary
necessities of tho eily without figuring
on the cost of any great public im-
piovoments apurt from the ordinary
street improvements. To raise this
amount it is estimated that an assessment of about Mi mills will be
wil] allow for a small
assessments aro
made on 50 per cent of actual values
It will bo seen that thc rate of seven
and a quarter mills on the dollar is
not n serious burden on t ie taxpayer
and that appealing against a hundred or two of assessments Is scarcely
Ou I worth the trouble of losing half a
jlo-   day to attend   the revisions.    Another

THE FISH EKMKN'S   STltlKE.
The strike on tbe Fraser is something more man a dispute as to the
rate of pay. There is a race problem
associated with it, and this produces
a complication that renders it di tlie nit
to deal with. If it were a q-iestion
for tho tisberiucn and canncrB alcne
tho public could look ou and take sides
a .'cording to individual sympathy.
The fishermen aie witl'in their rights
iu refusing to work for less than a
certain wage; the canners aro within
their rights in refusing to give more
than a certain wage. And under 01
dinary circumstances the fishermen
would put themselves cleaily in the
wro. g if tbey i jic e��_d in any man
net with others who weie prepared to
accept the wage ottered. One set of
men have precisely tbe same right to
work for a wage they are willing tu
accept as another set of men not to
work for what docs not satisfy tbem.
And Hritish law must see that they
are protected in tbe fullest exercise of
that right. No man must be allowed
to interfere with tho liberty of bis
feliowman to woik when, bow, and
for whom be pieates.
Hut on tbe E'r'a.e.' there is thai unfortunate race problem. White fishermen aie unanimous in rejecting the
offur of the cunners. If there wore
olho.' white lis! erinon anxious to take
their places, thc law aouid have to
protect them in acce.it ,;g employ
ment. Hut it is proposed to replace
then with Japanese fishermen. Tbat,
in the popular estimation, means tiiHi
the canners arc becking to introduce
coolie labor. The Japanese aro rated
witn the Chinese, and bo.li are put
below the level of the white man.
In tbis Province it is believed with a
firmness which nothing can shake
that these Orientals will not only
work for a wage which, if generally
prevalent, would degrade white labor,
but are ready to come in such hordes
to the country that in a short time
the whites would bo swamped. There
is perhaps exaggeration in tbis fear,
but just now it is uot necessary to
disci'as tbat point. The danger in its
wide sense may not be so great, but
there is a possibility lhat the canners
of the Coast woulil be willing to
drive out white fishermen in o tier
that they might employ the cheaper
labor of the Japanese.
This is the belief tbat would appear
to be at the bottom of the strike. The
canners are offering 11 wage that is below the standard necessary to maintain white labor; that is, tbey are
offering a wage which white men in a
white man's countiy cannot accept.
If that is tbe dispute, as it is claimed
to bo, public sympathy in liritisli Columbia must go with the white fisher
men, for whatever happens to tbe fishing industry this Province is not to
be made an Oriental colony. The.
violence reported yesterday is tn be
deprecated in any o&Stt, of course, anil
thoce guilty of it deserve and should
it-ceive punishment. The use of the
revolver in settling disputes is even
more alien lo Canadian sentiment
than the introduction of coolie labor.
Tbe troulne is of a kin. to demand
Government intervention. We see
every day more aud more reason wny
there should be some sort of .ompul-
sory arbitration for tbe settlement of
industrial disputes. They arc becoming too prevalent, to the great injury
of the general public welfare. Somo
thing in this direction should be done,
if business U not to run a constant
risk of being paralysed. Hut complicated an this Fraser Kivcr trouble la
with a race cinosti in, it is doubly the
duty of the. governing nuthoritcs to
intervene and compel a settlement. It
is their duty to inquire if those canners aro offering a price which is below a white man's wage, and if they
find tbis to be the case it is thoir lur-
ther duty to tunc such stop* as will
teach all coiieenicd that Canada is a
white man's co 1 il.y and that it is
forever to reum   1 so.

Ion ing is a paiagraph that appears
in liritisli Mining of .lune 26: "The
reticence of the Lc Koi diiectors re
mains tbe most astounding fact in
nnection with the disclosures and
allegations recently made in the columns of the 'Financier.' Over a fortnight has now elapsed since our
eoiitemporaiy lirst questioned tbe reliability of the company's returns';
yet the directors have failed to supply
any answer calculated to remove the
anxiety of the shareholders. On every
side it is being asked why the cou-
pany, if it has any answer to make,
does rot do so at once, and, needless
to say, its present silence is not being
construed very favorably. Things
liavc now come to such a pans that a
city contemporary, impressed, no
doubt, alike by our disclosures and
the reticence of tbo board, has called
upon the company's officials to give
'a plain answer' to 'a few plain questions.' Tbat is precisely what the
directors bave failed to do so far,and it
is to be feared that only strong pressure from tbe shareholders will induce thoin even to make the attempt."

A correspondent of The Vancouver
World is improssed by the con.rast
between the strike of the Fraser Iiiv-
er fishermen and that of the C. F. II.
trackmen. He cannot abide revolvers or shotguns, und is indignant at
the violence of tlie fishermen. On the
other hand, lu says, "the railway
trackmen are carrying on a gontle-
manly strike." The fishermen should
take a lesson from   the   trackmen,   or
bo taught one at ouce by the strong
arm of the law." It is something to
tbe ciedit of tho trackmen that they
have conducted themselves in a manner to command tbo public respect.
Ha* if tbe Railway Company were
seeking to Introduce coolie labor in
place of their own. their behavior
might have taken ou another turn.
There Is no excuse for the lawlessness of the Bshertnen, but it is just
possibly there Is ground for an extremely large measure of indignation.

take over the Catholic schools and
havo them conducted under the gen-��

the past six or eight years have been
paying double school rates.
The country generally will rejoice
if tbe Conservative electors of Adding-
ton select Mr. Foster as their candidate and return him to Parliament.
Mr. Foster is an able man m.d an honest one ; he Is ono of tho keenest debaters that ever stood on the floor of
tbe Canadian House of Oommons, and
as financial critic for the Conservative
party he is much missed. Whatever
our political sympathies, all will' admit that the presence of such a man
in Parliament is greatly to bo desired.

| ALONG. THE
I     DEWDNEY TRAIL
_>~��~-H.f'l��"��" "���"���"���"*"���"*"*
In travelling through British Columbia at the present date the travel
ler at certain places will perceive old
decayed bridges and a haid beaten
traclu which even the growth of
twenty years has not been able to altogether swallow up. cutting a line
through forest and plain, and leadiDg
almost due east aud west as a rule.
This is all that is left of the old
Ilewdney trail one of the most famous roads in the history of British
Columbia, and one. that has viewed
many strange and stirring scenes.
Over it at the lime of the great gold
discoveries in East Kootenay, in the
i;n's, nearly all the supplies for the
gold hunters and other inhabitants
had to be brought. Flour, shipped in
sailing vessels from Obili, was landed
at Port Townsend, Wash.," or at various points on the lower Fraser,
whence it was packed on tho backs
of horses or mules across the eight
hundred miles of wild forest and
mountain range to its destination at
the placer mining camps of Wild
Horse, and other streams near Fort
Steele. Fiom the accounts of some
of the old-timers who were in the
country at that time Hour was not the
principal article carried,whiskey generally being in the lead. Whatever
it was the dangers, privations and
risks endured in bringing it into the
country were almost beyond computation. This trail was put through by
the late Governor Dewdney, and in
honor of him was given his name.
It follows the course of the Fraser
river for a while and then st.ikcs east
to Otter Valley, where a branching
occurrs, one branch heading north for
the Cariboo coutiy and ihe other continuing through the Boundary. This
section of tho trail was in use before
Dew~ney's time, being called the
Hudson's Bay trail. At Penticton it
trends due south, " following the
line of the proposed Mfdway-Pentic-
ton section of the C. P. R. and was
the foreiunner of the piesent Columbia & Western division as far as Cascade, where the trail cut sharply
across the mountains emerging among
the peaks near Rossland and thence
down the valley to Trail, thjs latter
part, from Cascade to Trail still being extensively used. Near Wnneta
is a crossing, where in the old times
all day long strings of pack horses
might be seen swimming the swift
Columbia and Kootenay being the
two chief rivers to cross. The course
then follows the Pen d'Oreille, and
Salmon livers, and Lost Creek, Anally
crossing the summit and coining out
on the Kootenay some five miles
south of Kootenay Lake. About ono
hundred miles further on Cianbrook
is reached, where a custom houst
was situated in these days, the old
log buildings still standing   intact.
Of the thousands who passed over
the old trail few are living now, inl
strange to say those few are mostly
ones who had tbe hardest luck in the
great, gold boom of tbe (ill's.
In 1880 three young men of Kamloops undertook to drive a band ot
iai) horses over this tiail and then
north from Fort Steele to tho Upper
Columbia valley to the Yellowhead
Pass. They were successful, only losing six horses on tbe way, a most
marvellous achievement.
Wnen Nelson was first founded its
supplies and mall came over this trail
as far as the Columbia, whence they
were brought north by the 40 trail,
which is also in use yet.
When tbe trail was first put
through there was not a settlement
from the Fraser to Fort Steele on it,
but Hist the wagon road and then the
railway followed in its wake, and
today the whole route is marked by
thriving towns and cities, except in
the higher mountains. Fort Steele is
smaller than ~'hen the trail was
young, the placer mines there having
been exhausted for hand labor.

The general' course of the line ia
said to be from Marcis up Kettle river to Cascade where it first enters Canadian territory. It then parallels the
line of the C. P. R. to Grand Forks,
thence across to Midway and down to
Nelson, Washington, and on to Republic.
In the window of the Great Northern ticket ofiice at the corner of Ward
and Baker, is an advertisement nt
present that appears to be more
unique than valuable. It calls attention to the compan'ys rates to the
Pan-Ameiican Exposition and along
side the advertisement are several illustrations. One shows a hold-up by
train robbers of a G. N. tiain, and
another the interior of a car after it
had been blown up by dynamite by the
eame robbers. The leading matter
next to these illustrations conveyB
the not altogether reassuring information, "Stop overs allowed."
A   DEEP   MYSTERY.
It is a mystery why women endure
Bsokache, Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, Fainting
aod Dizzy Spells when thousands
have proved that Electric Bitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suffered for years with kidney trouble,"
writes Mrs. Phebe Cherley of Peterson, la., "and a lame back pained
me so I could not dress myself, but
Electric Bitters wholly cured me, and,
although 73 years old, I now am able
to do all my housework," It overcomes Constipation, improves Appetite, gives perfect health. Only 50o

The most miserable beings in the
world are those Buttering from Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint. Moie
than seventy-five per cent, of the people in the United suites are afflicted
with these two diseases and their
effects; such as Hour Stomach, Sick
Headache, Habitual Costiveness, Palpitation of the Heart, Heart-burn.
Waterbrash, Gnawing and Burning

O.VWV
Six of tbe miners from the War
Eagle arrived in Nelson yesterday, to
00k for work here. They say that
prospects in Rossland at present aie
anything but pleasant.
The R. M. R. band under the direction of Mr. J. B. Pollard, will give
tbeir first concert of a series of six
in all this evening on llaker street
beginning at 8 o'clock.
When all the new signal lights
that have heen brought in by the C.
V. R. are put in place the Nelsou
yards at night will piesent an interesting sight with nearly a hundred
colored lights Hushing in all directions.
T. 11. May will again go into the
barbering. business, lie bas rented
the store lately occupied hy Neelands,
���he boot and shoe man, and will lit it
up well. He leaves for Spokane this
morning to purchase an up to date
outfit.
Tomorrow at Emmanuel church
Rev. Wm. Munroe will preach in the
morning on ''Lessons From The Ex-
odus." At the evening service, winch
will be at 8 o'clock, the Subject of the
sermon will be ''Twenty Minutes
Late." (tooil music will he rendered

In regard to tne flume Addition
poisoning case, in which Mrs. Kin-
ina tlaSKcl] was accused, The Miner is
informed by the complaining witness.
Mrs. A. Booth, that owing to the (to
her) unsatisfactory result of the
trial she intends to sun for substantial
damages in a higher court.
The police authorities have started
in the bunking business. On Thursday evening last they ran into the
''cooler" a man who bad in his possession tbe sum of $1511 and spent tho
nigbt In Hollering up so as to be in a
fit condition to explain to the magistrate the cause of his insobriety. He
admitted the charge nnil was fined
the sum of 8.1 and costs, lie readily
paid the line nnd thought himself well
off, as he would, in all probability,
have lost the whole of tho SIDO if he
had not been locked up.
NEW   HUSBAND.
Quite   an   Improvement  on   the
Uid.
"I have licei compelled to stop
drinking it," 1 oaitl to the friend who
asked me to strengthen up on a cup
of her good coffuc. "Well," she said
"that needn't bother you, for I have
Postum Food Coffee here, which completely cured a friend of mine of sick
headaches." I tiled her coffee und it
was very good, but when I tried to
make it at home. I was disappointed.
I s.on found that I was not making
it correctly, but hy putting in two
heaping teaspoonfuls of I'ostum for
ea"h person and letting it boil twenty
minutes, it was delicious.
I had at thnt time been nn invalid
for several years, but did not know
my trouble was caused by colfee
drinking, of \vl1i2h I was very fond.
I immediately began to feel better
after leaving off coil'ee and using Postum, and stuck to it. One day 1
met a lady who was troubled the
same as I was, and whose appearance on the street really shocked me,
for she wits so emaciated. .She exclaimed in surprise at my improved
appearance,   aud  wanted   to    know
what I had been doing. -lie asked
me if I had bad a heftier of any kind.
I said , "Yes, I have nllowcd Postum
Food Coffee to work the almost complete miracle of curing me."
My   husband    has   been   absent   in
Georgia for some time,    and has   been
in wietehed    health,    having heen   in
the hospital twice   for indigestion.    I
wrote him to   .'top   using   coffee   and
tn Postum,   told   bim   also just how
to make it.    Yesterday   I   received   a
letter from hint in    which he says, "I ;
am   feeling very much  better, thanks
to yon and    Pom tun.     I   sleep   belter.1
eat better, and in filet,  my   dear,   am :
quite an improvinent 011   the old    hus- j

The two tramps who were arrested
for sleeping in a vacant house. Lee
Logan and J. W. Cray, were brought
hefore Magistrate Crease, at the police
couit yesterday morning, and were
given a le Itire by his worship on the
error of their way of living. They
were given just one hour to get out of
the city and they got. They are now
on their return to the land of the
.Stars and Stripes.
A meeting   of   the   school   trustees
and the school committee of   the   city

consideration   of   the sketch plans for
the new school which   are   being submitted hy the loeal architects.    There
