Eleventh Year
WILCOX IS
LOOKING WELL
Ymir Property That Promises
to Become a Great
Producer.
A Rossland Man Who Has a
Good Thing���Mines and
Mining.
Ymir, Aug. 0.���One of the finest
showings of ore ever obtained in the
Ymir district is now exhibited in the
Wilcox mine owned and operated by
the Broken Hill Mining & Development Co., Ltd. This property lies
nliout seven miles up Wild Horse
creek and has been continuously developed during the last three years
so that at the present timo there is
some 2,000 feet of development work
accomplished and large bodies of rich
ore blocked out. The exceptisnally
flno showing referred to above has
been obtained on what is known as
tho No, 2 or "Fourth of July" vein
On this vein a shaft has been sunk
to a depth of ISO feet which is tapped
at tho 155 foot, level by an adit tunnel of 250 feet. Both shaft and tunnel are in ore for nearly their whole
extent and both the sido ot the shoot
and the value of the ore, steadily increase with depth. In the deeper portion of tbe shaft tbo vein is four feet
wide and includes two feet of solid
steel galena ore carrying li high gold
value, besides silver-lead. The actual
average value of tho two feet of galena
ore is no leBs than $150 per ton in all
values and it may be safely snid that
having regard to its size this is one of
the richest shoots of oro over discovered iu the Province. Some of the ore
taken out from tbe upper portions of
the shaft where it is not so rich by
any means was shipped to Northport
last winter and returned $57 per ton.
Phil White who is superintendent
und manager for tho Broken III 11 Co.,
Is pushing on tbe development of this
rich body of ore. The winze from
the floor of the tunnel is down 25 feet
and be is now starting a second lower
tunnel. The contour of this ground
lends itself to very economical mining
by means of adit levels and this second level will tap the vein in 500 feet
at a depth of 400 feet. Besides this
rich ore body on the Fourth of July
claim, the company has a considerable body of ore already blocked out
on the Wilcox proper. On this claim
the No, I voin consists of ahout three
feet of vory soft oxides und carbonates *rom which the gold can be
freely panned. There aro three tunnels
totalling over 1,000 feet on the two
veins on the Wilcox besides a shaft
down 200 feet. The average value of
the free milling ore in vein No. 1 is
about $111 por ton and there ia already
a largo tonnage ready to bo broken
down as soon as a stamp mill has boBn
installed. Meanwhile further shipments of tbe rich galena oro from the
Fourth ol .luly will bo made.
tenay river,at a point opposite to Port
Hill, Idaho. The road should be
completed by the full and shipments
can bo made this winter. I am putting in u steam plant and before long
will bave a machine drill at work.
This will facilitate operations to a
considerable extent, so that when the
road is completed theie will bo plenty
of ore for shipment. There are three
claims in the group." Mr. Klock-
ruan left yesterday afternoon for Rossland.
Yesterday's mining records were:
Transfer of mortgage of $200 on the
May Blossom from John F. Harbottle,
Ymir, B. C, to S. S. Taylor of Nelson.
The following locations were recorded : St. Thomas and Telegraph
mineral claims on head of Hall creek,
adjoining No. !li), on the south formerly knowu as Cliff House and Corea
located by E. Peters, Nelson; Number Four, 13 miles north of Erie between new fork and east fork of north
fork, to Joseph Campbell. Certlfioates
of work were grunted as follows:

GOVERNMENT BUYS GOLD
AN ADVANTAGE TO KLONDIKERS
THAT VANCOUVER POSSESSES
OVER  SEATTLE.
(SPECIAL TO THK MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 0.���Mr. McCaffrey manager of the (iovernment
assay office, received a wiro from Ottawa today that the (Iovernment had
decided to buy the gold straight,
thus making the Vancouvei establishment a purohasiug ollice as well as an
assay office. It was explained at the
assay oflice that this meant that the
bank charges of three-quarters of
one por cent, that the banks were
getting for cashing the assay office
certiefinles, shipping the gold to Seattle, would bo done away with, and
that instead the assay oflice would
give a cheque on tjie Bank of Montreal
payable at par. In othor words that
only the assay aud mint charge, the
same as charged in Seattle, would be
deducted^', from the value of thu gold,
while one per cent, rebate on the
royalty would be unincumbered by
any other charges whatever and this
ono per cent, rebate would represent
the advantage the miner would bave
in cashing bis gold in Vancouver
rather than in Seattle.
CHINESE   SITUATION.
A. N. Klookman, of Rossland, and
William Roberts of Nelson, returned
yesterday from a visit to the Continental group in Northern Idaho, just
south of the international boundary
line. The group is owned by Mr.
Klockninn aud is considered to be one
of the most valuable in that section.
Mr Roberta examined tbe property In
the interest of a syndicate of Duliith
capitalists who contemplate purchasing it. Mr,Roberts in speaking about
the mine yesterday said: "Tie surface showing is very large and continuous and there is plenty of ore,
The deepest opening is a shaft which
is 100 feet deep and in tbis there is a
fine showing of ore. I carefully sampled tbo ledge but have nol yet had
the samplos assayed. I feel satisfied,
bDwovor, that the ore is of a good
grade and that there is plenty of it.
The greatest draw'.ack is the lack of
railway transportation facilities,"
Mr. Klookman said: "The Continental is a high grade silver-lead proposition; Indeed, experts deolare that
the ore will yield a net profit of $25
per ton after paying for,mining,transportation and treatment. They tell
me that there is about $175,000 net
profit in the ore which is now ln
sight. With a view lo getting the
ore to the tnaikot I am having a road
constructed from the mine to tbe Koo-
Lord Lansdowne, Fotoign Secretary,
Speaks Hopefully of Prospects.
London, Aug. 0.���Lord Lansdowne,
the Foreign Secretary, replying in the
Houso of Lords today to a question of
Earl Spencer, Liberal, said the Chinese negotiations had recently made
rapid and satisfactory progresss. The
indomnity question was disposed of
with the exception of a few minor
points. There was still some question whether tho matter of the commercial facilities in China had not
hotter be transferred to some other
pluce than l'okin and to some more
wieldly body than the present conference. Great Britain was still In
favor of the open door throughout
China. Tbey could not complain they
had not oqunl commercial advantages
in the Yang Tse Valley. The Foreign
Secretary also said that the final
strength of the legation garrison at
Pekin wil probably be 1800 men and
that an additional force of 30,000 men
would bo distributed at different
points along tho routes along tho sea.
The Secretary regarded the Anglo-
Uerman and the Anglo-Russian agreements as satisfactory and as tending
to the maintenance of China's territorial integrity.

(SPECIAL TO THE MINEI..)
Vancouver, P. C., Aug. 0.���The
headless body of a man has heen found
outside the narrows about a mile
and a half west of the waterworks.
The body was in a fair state of preservation but has not yet been identified There was kut ten cents in the

Those who hold the theory that two
Japs, missing since the nigbt of tho
marooning of the Japs during the
strike on tbe Fraser, were murdered
by strikers nave tbat theory greatl)
strengthened from the fact that the
head has every indication of being
severed from the body and there is a
gash on the shoulder close to the neck,
evidently made with a siiarp instrument. The body is small, not over
five feet in length, and the feet are

Selby Smelting Works Robbed
of S340.000 in Gold
Bricks.
Job Cleverly Done by Means
of a Tunnel and an
Upraise.
Vallejo, Cal., Aug. U.���Ooldbricks
valued at, $3-10,0110 were stolen during
the night from the Selby Smelting
works. The robbers evidently had
been working on the job for two or
three months. They had dug a tunnel from outside the house, beginning
with a shaft about three feet deep.
Thence thoy worked underneath the
vault and striking upwards bored a
hole in the lloor. The hole was shaped like the manhole of a boiler. Part
of the boles were bored two months
ago, It is thought, and the last hole
was completed during the night.
Through that hole they took off tho
gold bricks and carried tbem to a
bank near the mouth of the tunnel
east of the works whore they were
evidently placed in a boat. In their
hurry the robbers left, two of tho
bricks on the bautc. Boring the night
one of the workmen reported to his
fellows tbat he heard a noise in tho
strong room and declared it was a
ghost. The other ridiculod bim for
his superstition but an investigation
was made to see what caused tho
noise. The entrance of tbe tunnel
was covered with a frame, over which
the employees of the smelter passed
repeatedly every day but no one
seemed to notice anything out ol the
way.
Sheriff Veale, of Contra, Coeta
County, and Chief of Police Sanford
of Vallejo huve been notified and are
now at tho works. The police of San
Francisco and Osebaycitch are at work
on the case but so far there is not tho
slightest clue to tho robbers. The
work was that of skilled men and
their elaborate plans were carried out
without a nitch. Thoy got all the
bullion in the vault, leaving behind
only the two bricks which were dropped on the shore. Only one day's
accumulation of refined gold was kept
at the works. Yesterday's run was
unusually heavy and the gold was to
have been shipped back to San F.an-
cisco toduy. The tunnel that the robbers excavated was about three feet in
diameter and gave them plenty of
room io which to work. ��
It is supposed that the dirt from
the tunnel was taken out at night
and dropped in the bay. First reports
stated that tho tunnel was two or
three hundred foet long,but according
to late advices it was about ten feet in
length. The shaft was started clnso
to the wall aud was sunk below tho
foundation, thence it was only a short
distance under the lloor of the vault.
It is thought the men who committed
the robbery took their plunder in a
launch and made olf for San Francisco. Following is a liBt of properly
stolen: Four Une gold bricks, all
numbered and containing li,750 ounces.
Also 10,000 ounces of gold in various
���hapei and a little silver. Thc gold
in tlio bricks is worth $'.'0 an ounce. ",
THE LARDEAU RAILWAY.
Ahout four hundred men are al work
on the Lardeau railway and the number is being increased from time to
time. II. L. Nicholas passed
through tbe oity yesterday with thirty
men whom he secured in Rossland.
These men nre to be employed in grading. It is anticipated that the railway
will be finished to the foot of Trout
Luke by the end of the year and that
it will not be completed to the head
of Upper Arrow Lake until about, the
middle of 1002.

SURE OF OUR DAILY DREAD.
The outlook is that there will be
no shortage in "our daily bread" in
Canada during the next year for Manitoba is now garnering ono of the
largest wheat crops ever grown in that
fruitful province. It is pleasing to
note that this province is prospering,
even if Iliitisb Columbia is having
little troubles of her own in the Btrilie
at Rossland and minur matters which
need remedying.
Ex-Premier Gljeenway, who is an
authority on agricultural topics, says
tbat never in the history of Manitoba
were the prospects brighter for
an immense wheat crop It is estimated by the ex-premier that there
are 2,000,Ono nuros bearing wheat antl
that the average yield will be .10 bushels to the acre. This would give a
grand total of (10,000,000 buabels.
The prospects of so bountiful a liar-
vest has caused some Manitobans to
grow enthusiastic and President
Thompson at tho opening of the eleventh annual industrial exhibition at
Winnipeg on July 2Hth in his address said among other things: "Manitoba is on the eve of the greatest harvest in her history; a harvest which
forecasts her as the brightest and
richest in the magnificent aggregation of provinces comprising tho Dominion of Canada. I would that my
words were weighty enough to bo
carried on the wings of tho press
from one end of the empire to the
other, when I say that right here, in
this mighty Canadian Northwest, lies
the future granary of thc world.
Right here must come the i'lporting
couutries for their bread. What then
is our heritage'.' Anil how little cun
we appreciate our future possibilities!
Although in the afternoon of my allotted lime I hope to live to see the
day when the province of Manitoba
will ho producing more wealth than
the entire spring wheat crop of the
United States, which promises today
some 250,ooo,0"0 bushels *or more.
When wc reulii-e that less than 10 per
cent, of the fertile lands of the prov
ince are under cultivation ; lands ca
pablo of producing the finest grades
Of hard wheats known in tlie world
today. When we think of the vast
territory extending from the boundaries of Manitoba and tbo west to thc
foothills cf the Rocky mountain, having within its boundaries 150,1100,000
or 200,000,000 uctes of the finest agricultural and grazing lands in tin
world, wo must oonolude that the timi
cannot he far.distant, for the duvel
opniont must come, antl when our fa
minis grade of wheat known as Maui
toha No. 1 hard, must become a prime
factor in the prijo of the world's
bread stuffs."
While Mr. Thompson in  his   speech
dealt largely   in what brokers   would
call "futures"    Mr.   Greeiiway's csli
mate is, perhaps,   so accurate tbat  it
may be   taken   fur   granted lhat   tho
wheal yield of Manitoba   will   nggn
gate   what   hi' says It will, about III)
000,000   bushels,   This is sufllolcnt to
feed   a   vast    multitude.    Estimating
tbe nvorage consumption   of bread   at
u pound a day per   capita  anil   wheat
ut 60   pounds   to the tiushel   each In-
diviilual   would   uonBume about  six
bUSbulB of wheat per  year iu the form
of 'luur  made Into  broad,   At   this
ratu Manitoba Will raise nearly
enough wheat to make bread for n'-
moHt double the Dominion's population; in otler words Manitoba will
harvest enough of I lie cereal to supply
10,0(10,000 people with bread for a
year, Canadians can, therefore, have
nil the bread they want ami also
furnish the material for tb.' stair of
life for several millions outside of the
Dominion.

attention, and when she died she was
burled with all the honors that would
havo heen her due had Mr. Kruger
still been tho President of the Republic. In what pleasing contrast does
this stand out with the ruthless
slaughter of liritisli prisoners hy the
bands of llocr brigands. Mrs. Steyn
came higher, getting ��100 a month
and horses and carriages. She wrote
a friend in Scotland, "1 never lived
bo well in my life..' MoBt of us could
do well ou 1.500 a month. And while
these women wero enjoying tho bounty
of Great Uritain their husbands were
doing their best to wreck that country.
There is an alleged murderer in the
state of Washington who has been in
jail for ten years and has been sentenced to death seven times. On this
side of tht! lino wo do things differently as the O'Brien case will testify.
A great effort was made to save tbe
Yukon murderer's neck but the authorities at Ottawa refused to Inter-
fore with the law. It cost Canada
(100,000 to convict a comparatively unknown man ot the murder of threo
equally unknown men, but it teaches
American thugs to have great respect
for tho Union Jack. The Washington
man will piobably dio before his
case is settled or all the witnoses will
die and bo will be sot at, liberty.
While the I'rovincial Press is busy
discussing the plethora of newspapers
in the Interior another one springs
Into existence. Il is eallod The News

If the succeeding issues are as excellent The News will thrive and do

Before American papers roast Great

kindly cable their correspondents in

CURRENT COMMENT
Victoria Times: Tho dispatches today indioate tho reasons why Great
Britain is so anxious thut, 110 offence
Bhould be given to.lapau by any of the
colonies of the Empire. The critical
time in thu history of the Chinese
ilillii'iiltit's has not yet passed. The
schemes .��� t nations work out si owly.
If it were ordinary colonization of a
new countiy lhat is about  to   be    un
dertaken in China time would soon
settle all question of supremacy and
Great Britain could alford to wait
with equanimity. It is a much more
complicated problem that has to be
solved. The present dilbculties of the
Empire in other quarters give opportunities for boldness of intrigue somewhat beyond tho ordinary. That, the
highest interests of the world would
be served by a British diplomatic
triumph there can be no doubt.
The management of India, Egypt, and
other countries which are not capable of tbe fullest 'self-government
proves it.; tho open door which welcomes commerce from any quarter
without distinction of Hag accentuates
it. The triumph of France or Germany would mean the erection of barriers to commerce within their spheres
of influence, therefore it is resaonable
to suppose that tbo United States aud
Japan are behind Great llritain.

Play
Minstrels   Will    Not
Ball Unless Paid.
The Georgia Minstrels are a rum lot
of ball players. It was announced
that they would play tho Nelson team
at 3.30 yesterday afternoon and several hundred perspiring citizens wended their way to the recreation grounds
to see tho game. There was the usual
fortv minutes delay and the spectators spent the time in perspiring some
more. Nelson's team was half inado
up ot juniors and when the visitors
fiist went to bnt a few errors aud a
few hits produced two runs. Nelson
thou faced a tall south paw who looked like six o!clock and had an underhand tlehvei.v. One run was
scored. It was at tho end of tho lirst.
innings thnt the dusky minstrels began to be sorry that no gate receipts
were collected and would not go on
unless they wero paid.
The advertising part of the gnmo was
completed so they quit and the people
wemled their way up town thoroughly
disgusted with tho fiasco. The next
time tho minstrels want to play ball
in Nelson thoy will have to pick two
teams from amongst themselvos.
GREAT     NORTHERN     EARNINGS.
Spokane, Aug. li.���Semi-ofticial reports are that the earnings of tbe
Great Northern system for the year
just closed are 1:10,055,680, a slight
falling off from the earnings a year
ago, but much greater than was expected because of the adverse traffic
conditions following last year's e-op
through Noithwcstern wheat, territory, which contributes largely to the
business of the road. Statements
have been made that the gross earnings of tho system for the year would
show a decrease of a half million dollars. The actual decrease, according
to statements secured Saturday, will
be $334,077, which will probably bo
somewhat reduced when the year's
report is completed and oarnings from
miscellaneous source are added.
This year's oarnings wore contributed mainly by tho St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba section of the system, whose gross receipts amounted to
$��,178,378. The eastern Minnesota
earned $3,730,003 and tho Montana
Central $2,151,040.

TOUCHED LIVE WIRE.
Grand Forks, Aug. 0.���W. ,T. Shannon, employed in the smelter in the
electrical department, met with an
accident last week, whioh, though
not proving very serious, gave his
system a sevcru shock. During the
past month tho work of changing the
wires antl encasing them in iron pipes
to protect, them from high water, haB
been going on, Mr. Shannon came
in contact with two live wires at the
same time, causing a 40!) volt current
to pass through his system. Furl.ner
than a slight burn on thu loft of his
forehead and a shock that rendered
him momentarily unconscious he was
not seriously injured. Tho shock,
however. Iloored him, and in falling
one of his ankles was sprained.

preliminary arrangements have been
completed, and this weok saw the
inauguration of activity along the

the work to completion with all possible speed.

COAL ON KETTLE RIVER.
Orand Forks, Aug. 0.���The reported
discovery of an immense field of coal
up the west fork of the north fork of
Kettle river, is no pipo-dream, says
thc Orand Forks News. Since tho return of Uoorge A. Fraser, James Wiseman, H. E. Beach aud 11.B. Toronto,
from that country, who brought samples of the find with them, the subject
has been an absorbing one here. Joseph Wiseman is credited with being
tho original discoverer. An analysis
of the samples shows It to bo bituminous or coking coal of excellent quality. A test mado at the Granby smelter resulted as follows: 73.3 por cent.
fixed carbon, 23.2 volatile matter and
8 per cent. ash. Tho early construction of a railway up the nortli fork to
tho coal fields isprodioted.

UNNECESSARY HEROISM.
There was a freight siiiaslmp attended with an act of heroism and personal sacrillce on the Rio llrand Western, near Tucker yesterday, says the
Salt Lake Tribune, of Saturday. Five
curs in a westbound freight jumped
the track just east of Tucker, but thu
train was stopped before more damage
had been done to it than the break,
ing up of the derailed cars. However,
Rrakeman Robert Wheeler, who was
on the derailed part of the train had
a leg broken in two places. As he lay
helpless near the track, Wheeler remembered that west bound passenger
train No. a was due shortly, and the
fear of another aud more serious acoi-
dent nerved him to desperate effort,
so he dragged himself up the track
with his broken log lour ear lengths,
hoping to gel. back in time to Hag
the passenger. Hut a fellow train
hand came along to pick him up, nnd
told him tlie passenger was three
hours late.
