Eleventh  Year
BONDED FOR
$50,000
G. P. Hill Secures the Tunr-
over and   Runover
Claims.
They Have the Extension of
tho Famous Bayonne
Ledge.
An important deal for a group consisting of two olaims the Turnover
and Kunover, has just been oomploted.
Thoy have been bonded to C. P. Hill
hy Harry I,. Jackson, of Ymir. for
$50,000. The first payment has been
mado and the bond runs for a year.
These properties adjoin the liayonne
gioup and have an'extensloii of the
famous ledge of that property. Mr.
Hill intends to put a good sized force
at work on the group just aa scon as
the snow gues away. The ledge is 18
feet in width and carries free milling
gold ore of a high value, If Mr. Ilill
linds that the property Is as valuable
as he thinks it is at present his intention is to erect a ten stamp mill on an
excellent mill site not far fiom the
group.
The lodes in tho vicinity were flrst
located last summer and there was
quite a msh of prospectors thither and
50 claims were staked. Messis, Camp-
hell and Finch bonded the liayonne
group from Davenport and (lilliam
for $100,000. Since then they have
had a good sized force developing the
property and tho outlook is that it
will turn out a valuable mine.
A number of those interested in
claims in that vicinity intend to do
considerable development work ou
them during the coming open season,
and the liayonne camp promises to
assume considerable importance. It is
located about 24 miles west of the foot
of Kootenay lake and at present is
leached hy a trail.
��� 'i
MEETS WITH FAVOR.
of levol roads proving an insurmountable obstaclu. This year, however, is
likely to see the beginning of a great
change In this respect. Commencing
about three miles west of the eity on
the Granite road is a long level
stiotch of threo or four miles, on
which the grade is almost' imperceptible, and for several miles more the
driving conditions are also very good
The opening up of even one good road
will do more to encourage this pastime than probably any other agency
could and it ls more than likely that
by fall there will be a number of
good driving horses kept in Nelson.
Each year at the Dominion Day celebration there have been a few horse
races on Baker streot and despite the
quality, or lack of quality, of the
animals entered there is no question
but that this was one of the most interesting features of the colebration.
The races at Grand Forks and Cranbrook attract a large number of
people from ��11 the towns of the Kootenays, and if Nelson had a good track
there is no doubt but tliat this would
assist in improving the grade of the
competing horses, a complete circuit
wonld thus be formed and this wonld
give air inducements to the owners of
good horses to bring them to the
Kootenays. There aro many enthusiastic horsemen in Nelson, who would
be willing to "chip in" on the race
track proposition and it is oxpected
that tho matter will be put through
verv soon.
DISCOVERED
BOER CACHE
Several   Stand   Ready   to  Contribute
1 iherally Toward Race Track.
Much interest has been aioused
regarding the proposal to go ahead
with a lacing track in Nelson this
year,and it is probable tbat a meeting
will be called next week to arrange
matters. It is pointed ont by those
back of the project that with a good
horse racing track at Nelson a circuit
could be established taking in Grand
Forks, Nelson, Cranbiook, Maeleod,
Rossland anl Calgary. That this
would be a popular move there is no
doubt and witli responsible men behind it tbe project should be most
successful. Oi sites in and adjoining
the city there are several, but the best
taken all round seems to be one near
the Tramway park, to the south of the
line. There is a good level stretch
there, it is near the lako and convenient of access from tho city. Tho only
obstacle in regard to it seems to be
that several lots have been sold on tho
track in question and cottages erected,
although it may be possible to arrange
a oourse that would not be interfered
with by these in case it was not convenient to arrange as to their acquisition.
Another site that is under discussion is one up the valloy of Cotton
wood creek, in the park allowance of
the city. The land on tllis site is also
level and could be ensiily put in
shapu. it being now occupied by
Chinese gardens, but tho drawbacks
attached to it aro thertistanee from the
eity, and the long uphill walk or
dri'-e before it could be reaohed, In
the future the tramway line might bo
extended to reach it, but at present it
would not be a convenient location
for tho purposes for which it is needed. A third site suggested is on the
flat at the month of Grohmau creek,
where there is a large space of land
which is good for nothing else, being
too gravelly for agriculture. Tho
drawback in this case is also the
difficulty of access
lt would be possible to out a road
down from the Nelson-Granite road,
connecting with tho other side by a
ferry,but this would bo too expensive,
and the only othor way of reaching it
would be by boats. As lar as known
heso are the three best sites available, the others being too far out or
requiring too much alteration.
In thc past thero has been very little
driving dono in   Nelson,   the  absonce
WRECKAGE COMES ASHORE.
Many Pieces Found Near Carmanah
Hut Identidcation Impossible,
Victoria, March S.���Wreckage from
some of the many ships which have
been lost off the entrance to the
straits, is still coming ashore in tbe
vicinity uf Carmanah but with the
same unsatisfactory results in lospect
to its identity that has characterized
so much of that which haa washed
ashore, One of the lightkeepers has
just completed a tramp along the
coast for a distance, of seven miles to
the east of Carmanah, and has found a
groat quantity of flotsam, considerable
of this is white painted wood. He
picked np ono pieco with the brass
figure "2" on it, as though it was
the number of some stateroom in a
steamer. Included among the other
wreckage were several pieces of hardwood in maple and walnut, which also
look like the cabin fittings from a
steamer. Possibly considerable of
that caine from thu lost Mattewan and
cruiser Condor, as both these ships
must have gone down somewhere off
the entrance to tbe straits. The
derelict Laura Pike has gone ashore
and is nine miles west of Carmanah
where the Indians are getting the
lumber out of her.
REPORT ON TRAIN WRECK.
Eight Cars Burned-Obstruction on
Track Was Cause.
San Francisco, March 8.���The following statement has been issued by
the Southern Pacific officials with
reference to the disaster near Maxon
on Friday morning: Supt. Martin
reports that the accident occurred two
and one half miles east of Maxon at
2.35 a.m. Conductor Stockwell reports
that the speed was not fast at the time
of the derailment and in his opinion
the derailment was due to an obstruction on the track. The two day and
mail cars, one coach, one chair car,
three tourists' sleepers and one first
class sleeper were completely destroyed by fire.
A SERIOUS WASHOUT
The washout the now flume on
Cottonwood creek is a good deal moro
serious than at flrst appeared. The
flume is a heavy box one and was
intended to convey tne creek from
below the Baker street bridge through
tbe yards till all the tracks had been
passed. The heavy rains of the past
couple of weeks have raised Cottonwood creok considerably above the
level usually reached at this season of
year and on Friday the stream washed away the gravel at the commencement of tne flume and burrowed its
way under the structure finally raising it up and twi9ting it so that it ls
useless It was found necessary to cut
away one of the trestle bridges and
jack it up from the sides, and the
whole of the flume will havo to be removed and the work done over again.
The bed of the creek is entirely gravel
and sand and this with the swift
curront which constantly alters the
bars and the trend of the stream will
make it difficult to keep the stream
permanently in the channel wished.
The flume is about fifteen feet wide
and ono hundred and fifty feet long
and bniltof heavy timber.

attack tho revolutionists at San
Vablo, about tlve miles from David
and sent Col. Luque forward with :;0ll

country, are said to havo been surprised by live hundred of the enemy,
between two embankments from
which position the revolutionists were
able to shoot down the governmont
soldiers. Many of the lattei are
understood to have been made prisoners. It is hoped in government circles
that David was not captured by tho
revolutionists as the town wbb
strongly entrenched. Lastra may be
able to hold out until reinforcements,
sent by General (astro, reach bim.

One of the Under Secretaries of the
Foreigu Office May Succeed.
Washington, March 8.���Tho state
department has aR yet received no intimation of tho selection of a successor
to Loid Pauncefote. It has had the
impression that the choice, when
made, would fall to ono of the four
under-secretuiies of the British foreign

of them desired tho post. If Mr,
Lytlleton has been selected for the
post at Washington, thc notion marks
�� departure from tho usual custom of
consulting the other government as to
the acceptability of the contemplated
assignment.
As far as can be learned, Lord
Paunccfote's plans for the coming
summer do not contemplate a journey
beyond tho shoreH of this country. He
will leave Washington in a few days
for a visit to George Vanderbilt at
Biltmore, N. C, vtherohe hopes to

AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY.
I
The enterprise of P. H. Clergue and
associates should make Sault Ste
Mario an important place. In e
recent interivew Mr.Clergue announcd
that the steel works of his syndicate
at the Soo wonld be turning out 600
tons of steel rails by tne end of the
month. Six thousand men are now
employed by the syndicate and within a few months the number will be
increased to 10.000. This will support a large population and Sault Ste
Marie should become a city of smokestacks and tho Pittsburg of Canada.
It will result in keeping millions of
dollars in Canada that had hitherto
keen sont to other countries for the
purchase of steel rails and other man-
uactnred forms of that metal. In
short, the onterpriso of the syndicate
will build up a great industry and
add largely to tho material prosperity.
The results which have ��u far
attended tho efforts of the Clorgue
syndicate at Sanlt Ste Marie shows the
possibilities of the enterprise of those
who are pushing the development of
the iron deposits in the vicinity of
Kitchener. It is tho intention of this
syndicate, after the iron deposits are
opened so that large quantities of
ore can he extracted, to osatlbish iron
and'steel works and to manufacture
steel rails. The snydicate is said to
be possessed of sufficient capital to
fully carry out its plans.
It is said Inat the American Steel
Trust, recognizing the fact that the
establishment of iron and steel industry in western Canada, would deprive
it of important raaikets for its products, recently made an offer for the
deposits which would recuup the syndicate for t.e outlay made and leave a
handsome profit, hut the offer was declined as the determination of those
engaged in the enterprise is to push it
to a successful issue if that goal can
he reached with money, enterprise and
perseverance.
This incident shows how important
the enterprise is, leads to the conclusion that it is certain to play an
important part in the future of the
province, and hy many it is regarded
aB the moat valuable that has yet
been entered into in this province.
Indeed, it has all the essentials tor
success about it. The quality of the
ore has been demonstrated by analyses
to bo first class. The ~ork done last
year showed beyond tbe peradventure
of a doubt that the quantity is
ample for the purposes intended.
Fluxes are close at hand and of the
quality necessary lur the purpose.
Fuel is abundant ant] within a short
hanl oi the iron deposits,
The conditions of the cluseness of
iron ore to fuel and an abundance of
both are what to a large extent gave
England her supremacy in manufacturing iron and steel and partly led
to her supremacy of the seas. Like
conditions prevail in the vicinity of
Kitchener nnd should lean to like successful results.
The product of the furnaces would
havo a monopoly in Uritish Columbia
and should be able to more than hold
its own in the Northwest Territories.
It should lind a waiting market in
the Pacific. It oould meet competition
in the orient and we are inclined to
think would have a lillie the advantage there. According to a paragraph
in the report of the Hoard of Trade of
Victoria lhe Australian Confederation
and South Africa are large importers
of iron in its several forms. ln fact
thero is nn excellent market in all the
countries bordering on the Pacific
providing the existing competition can
be met. and we bt lieve it can be jnc-
cessfully, The freights from Kitchener
to the coast, however, must be reasonable in order to do this.
With so many conditions in its
favor thero is every reason to believe
that the Kitchener enterprise will be
successful and that it will in time,
and not so long a period either rival
n importance tile Clergue establishment.
We may therefore, be prepared to
aee thousands of men omployed in the
iron   and   steel   industry   of   British
Columbia. The syndicate intends to
recommence operations as soon as the
snow melts and with a larger force
than last year and from that time the
foice will grow, unless the uuexpeeted
happens, until as many operatives are
at work around Kitchener as are
employed by the Clergue syndicate at
Sault Ste Mario.
IS GROWING RAPIDLY.
The mineral industry of Canada is
growing at a good rate and it is
pleasant to note that the total output
in 1891 was $(51),l07,iJ31, an icciease
of $4,918,004 or of nearly five millions
over the previous yeir This increase
was made notwithstanding the fact
that the Yukon gold fields produced
but $88,000,000 whioh was a decrease
of four millions in those fields on the
figures for the previous year. Notwithstanding the decrease in the
Yukon the increase was 8 per cent, in
all the Dominion. Leaving tho Yukon
out of eonsidotation the permanent
metal mining districts show an in.
crease of nearly 87 per cent. British
Columbia etill maitains its supremacy
as a producer of minerals ovor the
other provinces, as according to an
estimate made by ihe provincial
mineralogist our output in l'.lOl was
$20,718,501. This is more than two-
sevenths of the total mineral pioduc-
tion of Canada, which is not a bad
showing, and reveals how important
our mining industry has become.
The placer goldBelds ol the Yukon
reached their zenith in 1900 when the
production was $22,000,000, and
declined to $18,000,000 last year. From
now on it is certain that the output of
Yukon gold will deorease annually
although the gravels should continue
to yield a few millions a year for
many decades to come. The development of the lodes on the Yukon has
conimeee, but the tide of produc'ion is
certainly on the ebb in the Yukon,
while it is on the flood with the permanent lode mines, which is svown
by the increase of 37 per cent, during
last year over 1900. It is eivdent that
our main reliance must be placed on
the lode mining and that this form of
industry must bo fostered.
The Dominion government lias
wisely recognized the necessity for
this and has decided to meet the
request of the Canadian Mining Institute and intends to establish a federal
mining bureau. It is stated that Professor Haanel, at one time in the employ of the Ontario government, and
who latterly has been residing in the
United States, has been selected for
the head of the proposed bureau.
Mr. Haanel is a recognized authority on mining and under his direction
the mining bureau can be made of
great benefit to the mining industry.
There is a fear, on account of the
location of the headquarters of the
bureau at the scat of tne fedeial government, that undue attention will be
given to the mining areas in the eastern portion of the Dominion. ThiB
should not be done. The attention of
the bureau should be bestowed on the
several provinces in proportion to
tlieir ouptut. This would be the only
just method of procedure, and as Biit-
ish Columbia's output last year was
something over two-sevenths of the
entire mineral production of tne
Dominion and as it was greater than
that of any other province, it should
receive the lion's share of the attention of the bureau.
The work of the geological depart
ment, too, could be enlarged. This
province has an immense mineral
area, greater perhaps tban that oi all
the other provinces put together. A
larger staff should be put in the field
for the purpose of making geological
surveys, which are of great value io
determining the merits of mineral
bearing country. It was stated that
the country tributary to one of
the branches of the Kettle river
was likely to contain coal in one of
the recent reports of the geologial
survey. This hint was taken by-
some prospectors and the result was
that about 50 square miles of coal
land was taken up last year and the
area staked is to be enlarged this year.
This ccal was in a section where its
existence previously was never even
suspected. This incident shows the
value of the geological uurveysand the
necessity for extending them in this
province.

Surgeons have accomplished the remarkable task of tailing a man's
brains out, cutting off somo diseased
nerves and replacing them in their
cavity. The man operated on still
lives. It now seems that there are but
few portions of tho human anatomy
that cannot bo suceessully operated on
by the daring surgeons of the day. In
fact surgery is advancing more rapidly

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for th<- past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well aa many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced takiDg it nbout the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

Cecil Rhodes, the empire builder, is
alllicted with an enlarged heait and
grave fears are entertained that his
end is not far off. The worries incident to tho South African war have
borne heavily upon Mr. Rhodes, and
doubtless superinduced the acute ailment witb which in suffering. There
are many whom the world could better   lose   than   Cecil   Rhodes,   whom
Kipling has in his intense admiration
called "the greatest living man."
While this is saying a great deal and
is something over the mark, still Mr.
Rhodes has played an important part
in the history of South Africa and his
loss will leave a void which it wll be
difficult to fill. He is a type of the
empire builder who has done so much
to enlarge the possessions oi tbe British empire. rlo has sown some good
seed daring his life time in addition
to his many accomplishments and if
hia comprehensive plans are carried
out, and especially his scheme for a
Cape to Cairo railway, "the vaster
empire than has been" will have a
large area of territory added to its
present possessions. It is to be hoped
that the illness of Mr. Rhodes is not
as serious as the dispatches would indicate, and that he mav soon have a
full and complete recovery.

I     MINING NEWS.     X
Z*************************
Maxwell Stevenson, manager of the
Bighland mine, is at the Hume and
says the concentrator will soon resume
operations when regular shipments
will be made
There are 85 men on the payroll at
the Last Chance,10 cf whom are working in tlie big tunnel, driving Loth
ways and raising on the ledgo. The
showing is very encouraging, but progress is not very rapid as it is all
band drilling.
Tho Sandon taystreak announces
that tho Byron N. White Co. has
signed a contract to ship its product
of about 800. tons per month to the
Everett smolter. This means that tiie
property will bo worked full blast
this summer anc. will employ more
men than ever before.
The outlook for the Cascado mine,
in Burnt Basin distiict, is said to he
brighter than ever before. The returns from shipments already made
have been decidedly encouraging, and
every foot of development done is
adding to the already splendid
showing.
There are now 55 men on tho payroll at the Payne mine and everything
is going along smoothly, says the
Sandon Paystreak. The upraise from
No. 8 will he completed about the
1st of March, which will greatly
facilitate the working of the property. Excellent progress is being
made with the construction of tho
mill, which will be completed in
about threo weeks. Four cars'fore
were shipped this week.
The Sandon Mining Review says it
is reported that the Ruth mine will
resume shipments sometime about
May 1st when a good staff of men will
likely be engaged. Tho Ruth has shut
down shipments for over a year on
account of the price of sliver and lead
and tho conditions affecting silver-
lead miuing generally. The Dope,
one of the group, has beon under
steady development during the winter
months, employing two to thiee mon.
Some occasional small shipments wero
made from the Hope, when the raw-
hiding first started. The Wyoming,
another claim of the group, is also in
good condition to be opened up at any
time, having good showings to work
on. On the lower tunnel of the Ruth
is where the most work has been
done. It is expected that the lead on
this level will bo struck with about 80
feet more work. ' Some ore has boon
takenjout of this tunnel and is sacked
and ready for shipment. The ore
assays 200 ounces to the ton. The ore
that has been taken since the mine
ceased regular shipment was simply
that encountered in the course of the
development work. Whon the mine is
in full running order again the concentrator is likely to start up.
FROM ONE WHO KNOWS
Editor Miner,���It is with much
pleasure that I have been reading tlie
proceedings of the Kootenay Tourist
association in your columns. About
ten years ago I brought this important matter botore the then residents
of this suction, but no action was
taken. It is new gratifying to know
that the oitizeus are being wakened up
to the importance of such a scheme.
I have seen and studied the advantages of tourist travel in Colorado and
eisuwhere, and can truthfully state
that no matter how great and how
valuable the mines of a section of
country are tourist travel is the big-
g."st pay ing concern of tbem all.
Tourists benefit every oue with whom
they come in contact. All In the
country participate in the prosperity
they bring, fro.n tlio wealthiest capitalist to the humblest bootblack.
The sights and scenery in many
parts of the world have become effete
to a majority of the tourist class and
they long for something new. Were
the advantages of tbo Kootenays
brought tu their attention, streams of
these money-spending people would be
flowing through here every year. Nor
do they only take in the sights and
enjoy the sports but many make investments In tne different industries.
There are many places in this country
now of comparatively valueless that
would be wealth producers with
touirst travel established.
In fact I could give scores of instances and suggestions did space permit.   Very truly,
RANDALL II. KEMP.

coming from Procter for Nelson it
collided with a huge bouldor which
had rolled down from the bank above.
The engine, and tender, were derailed
and three cars of coke upset. Trainmaster Lawrence, who nappened to
be on the train, walked baok to Procter, the accident having occurred opposite Kokanee creek, about five miles
from Procter, and wired in for a
wrecking train which was immediately despatched to the scene. Tho
front of the engine was injured and
the tender broken. The whole was
cleared av ay by 2 o' clock yesterday
afternoon and the engine brought into
tht shops for repairs. While the wet
weather continues the trains to aud
from Procter will probably be run
only in the daytime, to prevent accident, as a large number of boulders
are constantly sliding down on the
track. Tnere is a large accumulation
of cars of coal at Procter at present,
owing to the bad state of tbe road,
some 12.1 cars are now awaiting transportation.

GOOD WORK
Proper Foot! Makes Marvelous Changes
Providence is sometimes credited
with directing the footsteps by
simple a way as the reading of a food
advertisement.
A lady out in Shelbina, Mo., says,
"About two years ago I was com
polled to retire from my school
teaching because I was completely
bioken down witli nervous pros
trotion.
I suffered agony in my back, My
hands and feet would swell up nights
1 was in a dreadfully nervous con
dition, irritable, with a dull heavy
headache continually, bud no appetite
and could not digest anything if I
tried. 1 was unable to remember
what I read and was, uf Oourse unlit
ior my work.
Some said I had consumption
Others said dropsy. One day, as if by
providence, I read the testimonial of
a lady whose symptoms were much
tho same as mine, and she told of how
Grape-Nuts Breakfast food had cured
ber, so 1 concluded to try it.
I left oil' the old fashioned breakfast
and began with Grape-Nuts, a littlo
fruit and a cup of Postnm Food Coffee.
That was eight months ago and
1 have steadily improved in both body
and mind. Grape-Nuts Breakfast
Food has done more for me than all
the medicine I have ever taken, and
am now well again and able to return
once more to my school duties and
able to do anything necessary in my
woik.
My mind is clearer and my body
stronger than ever before Please do
not publish my nnme." Name given

TO KILL THE DANDRUFF   GERM.
ItB the Only Possible Way of   Having
a Permanent Cure.
If you see a woman or a man with
luxuriant glossy hair.you may be sure
neither has dandruff to amount to
anything. In nearly every case wheie
women and men have thin brittle
hair, they owe it to dandruff. There
are   hundreds  of     preparations  that
claim" to cure dandruff, but not
one but Newbro's Herpicide tells you
that dandruff is the result of a germ
burrowing into the scalp and thnt
permanent cure of dandruff and its
consequent falling and baldness, can
only be bad by killing tlie germ: and
there is no other preparation that will
destroy that germ but Nenbro's Herpicide. "Destroy the cause, you remove the effect."

LIMITED.

Subscribed Capital $18,000.
Now Offered for Public Subscription, $7,000.
A well equipped, well managed, up-
to-date farm is not olten seen in this
district,in 'net land suitable for fanning is found in but small patches
tliuuglhout the mountains. There
is however, a tract of good tillable
land in the beautiful Fire Valley,
which extends tu the Arrow
Lakes, and is about 78 miles from
Nelson. The abovo company have been
unusually fortunato iu securing 720
acres ol* this land and for tile past 14
months they have been quietly working along clearing the land wilh a
view to going into the dairy business
on an extensive scale. Owing to the
absence of heavy timber tlio cost of
clearing is unusually small,averaging
about $13 per acre, They already have
over 100 acres cleared which will all
be under cultivation t.nis year and
from which they expect to take a large
quantity of hay,etc. Should tUe company seo Ht to market this it would
pay a handsome dividend but such is
not tlieir intention, as they require it
for tlieir own s'ock which they will
place on the ranch earl) in the fall
when they will begin selling milk
and other products and from which
they expect to receive larger returns.
As will be reen from the above only
one-sevntl.of the ranch   is cleared   as
yet. lt is the intention of the company to vigorously push the work of
clearing the balance of the ranch
during the approaching season. So
that a large part of it may be placed
under cultivation next year.
In view of the high prices paid for
farm products in this district, it i;
not difficult to sec a bright future
