Meeting Held By Buffalo Business
Men to Discuss Exposition.
Buffalo, N. Y., July 30.���A joint
meeting of railway passenger agents,
hotel and newspaper men was hold
this afternoon with the view of
adopting some means for coneeting (o
far as possible the impression that appears to prevail at. distant points that
railway rates to the Pan-American exposition are high and that hotel rates
in Buffalo are excessive. The conference revealed the fact thai Buffalo can
accomodate :i00,000 visitors in the
private houses and hotels at rates
ranging from 50 cents to $2 per night,
and that no onq need pay more than
$1 for tlrsl class lodging in a private
house. It was also shown that the
railroad rales are lower than for any!
former exposition for a five, ten or
fifteen day ticket, according to dii-
tance, being at. the rate of one fare
plus one dollar for the round trip.
The Niagara Fall.; cheap one day
special excursions of former years,
when trains were oveicrowdod and
every one subjected to great discomfort arc remembered only so far us the
low rate is concerned and Ihfs is quoted as showing what might be done.
The passenger agents assert, that, the
present half rates are as low as can
be reasonably expected. An extension of the present limit has been
looked for as it gives too short a time
for any one to see the big exposition,
but it. has not yet been modided.
Other points which the representatives
of the publishers association will lay
stress upon, is that tne exposition is
completed in all details and that
both Buffalo and tbe exposition are
well policed and' as free from dangor-
ous characters as any citv in the country. A joint committee was appointed
to deal with questions affecting iho
exposition and the proper welcome and
caie of   guests.    The   exposition   has

The Daily Mail this moming characterizes as "baseless and mean,"
Mr. Broderioks assertion in the House
of Commons yesterday that the paper
bad a habit of surreptiously buying
secret war office information, adding
that if Mr. Broderick ventured to
repeat outside the house that the paper had stolen official documents, it
would prosecute him for libel.
In the House of Commons tbis afternoon, Swift McNeill, Irish Nationalist, made a motion to the effect that
the Daily Mail's charges was a breach
of the privilege of the house. The
government leader, Mr. Balfour assented, but apparently not desiring
to stir the matter up, he said he
thought it was not necessary to press
the motion. Mr. McNeill, however,
insisted and the motion was carried
without a division. Mr. McNeill then
moved that the printer and publisher
he ordered to appoar at the bar of thc
house tomorrow. The motion was
defeated by 288 to 128 votes.

an interest in the raining operations
in this district so that the camp is becoming a centre of much importance.
Prospectors and Investors from almost overy part of the country are be
ing attracted tr the place.and are like
the Israelites of old, "spying out the
land " aud speak very encouragingly

and the inaccessibility of tbe property
Their confidence in the property, has
at last been justified. The long looked for vein that was being cross cut
for has at last been reached. The
tunnel bad to be driven through unusually hard rock and is already in a
distance of 310 feet and has a doptb ot
450 feet. They have run through the
ledge a distance of 18 feet and have
not yet reached the hanging wall.
The ledge is 20 feet wide on the top
and has an ore body of six feet. The
values of picked ore have run as high
as $270 and tile ore in the vein
averages $23.80 in gold and minor
values.in silver. The tunnel will be
finished this week and it is expected
by that time they will have reaohed
the hanging wall. There are nine
claims in all belonging to tbe company of which S. Desbrisay is the
president. The property is situated
_bout nine miles from tbe railway
and development work will be continued until the property is on a shipping basis. The work on these
claims has been watched with great
interest, because of the richness of
the surface showings, and of the ore
found in the 40 foot shaft. The cross
cut tunuel has now reached a
point below the shaft, and the ore
corresponds with that found in the
At the Ymir mine tie contract has
been let for clearing a place for the
new sawmill, which the company is
about to erect, in preparation for tbe
cutting of the lumber required for
the new cyanide plant about to bo

will enable the company to treat the
concentrates on the spot and will
add at the least .alculatlon $350,000 to
the value of the company's outfit.
The new enterprise will require al
addition of fifty or sixty men.
Thc Wilcox property haB been undergoing liberal development of recent dat�� and Superintendent White
has a deal on for the sale of the property.
The Dundee property is still in litigation whicli has caused thc sus-
peuBion of an otherwise valuable property, which formerly employed 200
men, but is at the piesent time only

Au important deal haB just been
consummated in connection with a
group of claims adjoining the Ymir
mine. The group is traversed by the
Ymir veinjand a ledge of oie has been
uncovered on the property, which is
claimed to be identical with tho famous Ymir chute on thc same property. Thc claims in question are the
Carthage, owned by R. Kenrns, and
the Pat and Fraction, owned bv J.
Philbert aud W. Blair. The owners
of the Pat and Fractional are tho original locators of the well unown Ymir
mine, to which the Pat is an adjacent
claim. These claims have been pui-
chaoed by the Chicago   National   De
the newly acquired property. So far
no statement has been made iu regard
to the terms of the deal, but it is understood that there has been a considerable amount of capital transfered in
the deal.
The Fog Horn owneis have been doing development work, and are working a few men, but are not making
any very great movements at the present time. Edivad Peters of the Seven
Star mine brought in some beautiful
samples of free milling ore tbe other
dny, which is an encouraging sign of
the   value of the property.
The building trade in Ymir, at the
present time is very slack, and practically the only piece of work of this
nature being performed is the addition
to the manse. The Presbyterian board
of managers have let the contra"t to
Mr. Anderson for the alterations,
which commenced on Monday laBt. It
���vas decided to pull down tbe old
building, which is only a shell, and
rebuild the same ou the church property, a little further up tbe hill. It iB
expected that the work will be com
pleted in the course of the next two
weeks, as it has to be ready by the
20th of the month for occupancy.

Training    Ship
The Hewitt mine, which is possibly
the best developed dry ore proposition
in the uppet Slocan Lake country,
has resumed ore shipments to the Nelson smelter. The company operating
this property have just completed a
2,500 foot aerial tramway which bas a
carrying capacity of 50 tons per day.
New buildings are being erected for
the accommodation of the employees
and the present force of 45 men will
be largely increased at once. There
is now being deliveied at. the Silver.
ton wharf for shipment a carload of
ora every two days, und these shipments will be continued all summer as
there is stacked up at the mine 7,000
sacks of ore beside, a large amount
broke in the mine loady to sack. This
mine is opened up by a system of tunnels, all driven directly on the vein
and opened up to a depth of 450 feet.
A tunnel is being driven on the vein
that will tap the main oie schute at a
depth of over 000 feet and which will
be when completod some 1100 feet in
length. The ere from this property
is a dry silver ore carrying ruby silver, native silver and a very small
percentage of lead nnd is at present
in much demand by our local smelter
for fluxing purposes.
At the head of Four Mile creek,
which empties into Slocan Lake at
Silverton, is situated^ the Freeport,
Fairhope and Fairmount mineral
claims, locally known as the Valentine group. On these claims are being developed two parellel veins one
five and the other ten feet in width
both being true fissures and lying in
the granite formation. Considerable
work has been done upon the smaller
or Ave foot ledge three tunnels having been driven upon it the aggregate
length being over 250 feet. Tnis vein
carries a paystreak that varies in
width from eight inohes to a foot and
has been traced a distance of son
feet and which gives average assays
of 246 ounces in silver to the ton. 'The
character of this vein is a dry sllvci
ore carrying grey copper, chlorides of
silver aud stafinite, speoimens being
obtainable that will assay up into the
thousands of ounces. A pack trail is
now being built by tbe government
that will pass within a short distance
of those properties and the owner who
has considerable ore now on the
dump, is making preparations to commence shipping as socn as this trail
is completed.
Grand Foiks, B. C, July 30.���The
bituminous coal recently discovered
on the north fork' of Kettle River, 80
miles north of Grand Foiks is pronounced by the assay ollice of the
Granby Bmelter to bo euking coal of
excellent quality. The analysis made
by the smelter officials Is as follows:
Fixed carbon, 73.3 per cent., volatile
matter 22,2 per cent., ash :i per
cent. Joseph Wiseman, the discoverer, George A. Fraser, and others, who
are interested will ask the Piovi.cial
Government to make an appropriation
for the immediate construction of a
trail to the coal fields. Thu existing
trial to the ferns of the river will
have to be extended nearly fifty miles.
The coal, It appears, outcrops on both
sides of the river. In all over 7,0011
acres have been located. This area
will be thoroughly prospected tbis

floating dock at Kaslo. He was but
partly awake having been quickly
roused to throw down the side guards

alongside a stand of piles some distance from the shore and he fell into

The City Council sometimes lias a
queer way of doing business. It call-
eil for plans for a high school building anil chose the work of an architect who proposed to erect a stone
building. The plans of another architect were admittedly the best if it
was intended to use brick as building
material. As everyone else knew, and
the Aldermen should havo known, it
was impossible to build the schcol j
of stone and keep the cost within the j
appropriation, so before the contract
was let the architect was allowed to j
change his plans and substitute brick
tor stone. What about the brick
plans that bad already been practi-
eally accepted if that material was to
be used? Why were not the brick
plans gone into again and all the
architects allowed to compete? It is
probable now tbat if the City Council
asked for plans for a hen liouse the
architects would prepare elevations of
most magnificent buildings, to cost
many thousands of dollars, and when
the award was made, the successful
man would come back and say that he
found, after all, he could only build
an ordinary ken house for the small
amount of money voted for the purpose And the City Council would
tell him to go ahead and build anything ho liked as he had drawn the
prettiest picture in thc lirst place.

In tb�� report of the tenders given in
the last issue of Tho Miner on the

88.421. This makes the tender of Mr.
"Lawr the second lowest! tender on the
A little scene occurred at the meeting of th~ city council on Monday
evening in connection with the tenders. Architect Ewart asked permission to address the council before the
Bohool trustees were dismissed. He
complained that the aotion ofthe com-
mittoe in allowing the successful architect to change his plana from stone
to brick, was unfair to the other architects, as it was understood that the
next plnns in tho fnvor of the committee, wero to be adopted in the event
of the former ones not being as required, by the. terms of the competition. Mr. Swannell/ as the representative of the school trusees, stated
that the previous speaker was under
a misapprehension, as the plans and
specifications that the different eon-
tractors had figured on, were the same
as those which hud been accepted and
that the plans were in no way changed. The specifications had called for
tenders In both brick and stone, and
tlie raoBt of the contractors had figured on the contract both ways. Hut
when the committee met and opened
the tenders, they found that bv constructing the building of stono it
would exceed the amount at their disposal, and as by the tenders in brick
they could go ahead with the build-
inR at once, and keep within tho 810,-
000 limit, they had decided to use
brio, instead of stone. '.n regard to
the statement made by Mr. Ewart
that he hcUl second place.lie announced that if the statement appeared In
the press that Mr. Ewart obtained second place, It was a mistake, as Mr,
Macdonald's plan had been accepted
as the second in order. Alderman
Patterson at this juno'uro produced a
copy of the statement of the poll, in
the speaker's own wiillng, which corroborated the statement he liud made.

The change of taste in tlueatieai
amusements und the opportunity for
wide awake and up-to-date management to forge refined minstrelsy to the
front inspired the biggest minstrel
combination in America, and embody
in it the best forms of vaudeville and
fragmentary acts that would find
ready favor with all classes of theater
goers, that they have succeeded in
doing this is evidenced by the success
of their big minstrel enterprise which
is booked at the Nelson Opera House
for Monday. The venture has met
with phenomenal success, and from a
inodt-st beginning, sonic few years ago
the company now ranks foremost and
is the largest and best minstrel or-
gani.ation in America Fifty performers furnish an evening's entertainment in which fun is plenty and
of the good wholesome kind.
