INES AROUND YMIR
[Great Activity Is Being Displayed on Many
Rich Mines and Prospects in
That Vicinity.
I  Edward Peters of Ymir, u prominent
iiiniiig promoter and who   la   largely
Interested in that  section of the cqun-
was in Nelson   yesterday   and he
lutes   that   the   mining   industry   of
Lit district  has  greatly    Improved
Airing  Ihe   past   few   months.    That
Action seems to beoomlng to tho'f rout
Hinting the prominent mining districts
Hi Hritish  Columbia,    tlood   vigorous
Hevelopinent is   being carried on upon
���early   every    property    and   all   are
Showing up exceedingly   well.    Several largo   deals   are pending and judging from the   present   favorable    cir-
jpuiiis'ances    il   will   he   hut   il   short
Hinic until companies with apparently
Hnliniited capital   will   he   operating
Several uf the best nnd largest proper-
Hies there.
I Mr. Peters, along with M. E. Tay-
^ir, li. W. Taylor, C. I). J. Christie,
In.I Fred Pollock, is interested in the
Birthday group upon whieh consider-
|hlo work has been done. The group
onsists of three claims, the Hirth-
lay, Ivory King and the Woodclluok.
through the entire three claims three'
promising ledges have been found, to
living free milling ore and the other,
pre that has to be smelted. On the
Jlrthday claim n shaft has been sunk
a depth of 50 feet and a vein was
Incovered for a good width showing a
lay streak over two feet wide whieh
lives exceedingly high assay returns
If gold. On the Ivory Ring claim o
laid has been traced over 350 feet and
^pon it a shaft has also been sunk to
considerable distance. 'The vein
���v>'" is over IS incites wide. On this
llaiui ut the SO foot level a tunnel
till be run to tup the vein and it is
npected that it will have to .be run
about 70, feet. It lias been sturted and
111 the work will be centered upon it
���ntil it is   completed.    The third ve
property is situated
i    half    miles   from
second vein. Tl
uhout one and
Ymir.
The Bullion group which is owned
by a Spokane stock company and
which is a well known property is also in this vicinity. It consists of two
claims, the lltillion and tlie Iron Cap.
I'poll them considerable work has
been done in erosscutting and the
sinking of three shafts, the deepest
being down about 85 feet. The lead
shows four feet of free milling ore
giving smelter returns from $10 to Sis
in gold values. The work upon this
property has been retarded of late owing let the non-arrival of machinery
which was ordered some time ago. It
is said Hint the machinery is held for
certain reasons that are known only
to the owners. The property is of
great value and when the machinery
Is installed it will he among the best
mines of the Ymir district. The Woodbury claim also adjoins this property
antl from its vein which is four feet
wide assay returns of 81'- have been
obtained. To the east and Bltuated
near by is tlie Flossie It. group which
is also owned by a stock company of
Spokane. The work upon this property was closed down about a year ago
hut it is understood that the owners
intend starting new developments and
nioie extensive work ut once. When
the work was stoped a tunnel was being run and the   lead was   apparently
lost,   this being lh. .u.ioe ,��f    lelic   nlmt
down.    It is known   that a rich   vein
exists and hy putting the   mine under
good management it is thought that it
can tie put upon II successful basis.
When it was being developed before,
it good trail was built for tlio hauling
of tlie ore and very little work yet remains to be done to iuuko it a good
paying proposition.
The   well known lilackstock   group
as  been   exposed   only by   crosscuts, .
r ,,-_.,      ,     is situated near the tamotis \ mir mine
,nd it  hits  been   discovered to he   10! , .     ,
���    ,,     ., land although the   work   upon   it   has
ches wide on the surface.  Besides  t L (���   ^  ^
lug   free    milling  I    carries  sul-. directors was held but
tides.    Assays   from the   surfaces of.; ���",���,. and ,t   WM   dr-���
keh of the veins have been taken and
ch gave an average of about $15 in
lold hut as tbe depth increases so dc;
Bie values. The property is situated
iwo inileB from the town of Vmir and
(lie facilities for transporting the ore
lie moHt excellent and everything at
present indicates that the property
fill be one of the host in that mining
leotion.
Adjoining the Birthday group is the
veil known May  ISlossom   group consisting of three claims, the May lllos-
om, May Day and the Sunrise   all   of
vhlch Carry ore of exceptionally high
gold values making it one of the richest properties of the section.    Considerable   drifting   and erosscutting has
been done on each of the  three claims
and on ono of the   veins   a   shaft  has
been sunk to   the   depth   of   35   feet,
'The voin   which   was followed by the
|sinking of tho shaft was found   to   be
h inches wide and its width increased
as the shaft deepened.    The ore which
fu of u galena  chain'cter   gives  assay
returmi from 950 to  0480  In all values
-bout $70 being   in   gold.    This property is owned by Spokane and Taeoma
[capitalists antl it is rumored that they
lure   now     negotiating   with   another
[company   for  disposing  of   it   for   a
1 large sum.
Thu Last Chance property consisting of two claims and owned by Tn-
coma capitalists is also in this vicinity. Much development- work upon
this nan been done. Over 160 feet of
drifting has been completed and two
good veins havo been uncovered. Thei
first vein is foui ftet wide and on it a
shaft has boon sunk to the depth of 10
feet. The ore from this is not free
milling but the smelter returns give
*I0 per ton in gold values. The company is at present contemplating more
extensive development. A contract is
uhout to bo let to sink the Shaft I"
the ISO foot level. A short distance
to the first vein is u parallel load
which If anything contains higher
gold values that the first as the assay
returns are from Sl 3 to 020. The ore
is a free milling quartz, When tho
150-foot level is reached in the shaft
It is intended to run   n   tunnel to the
As yet it is not known whether the
lloat was from tlie lead upon which
the men are now working, or from a
lead which has not yet heen discovered. A search will he made to ascertain
whether there is another lead on the
property.
The tramway ut the Chapleau mine
on Lemon Creek will ho completed in
the next two or three days. Tlie construction of the concentrator which
is being erected at the mine is retarded somewhat by the delay ill the arrival of the machinery. It is thought
that it will he operating about the

oided
Unit work should begin at once and he
carried on vigorously all winter. It
is expected that a considerable amount
of ore will be shipped and it will be
sent to the Mull Mines smelter at Nelson. The -work that has already been
done upon the property will amount
to about 915,000 and it is suid that
there is at present over ��M,000 of ore
ill Bight. It is a galena proposition
and assays as high as SHU in gold have
been obtained. Although it is owned
by an English company it Is said that
another English company is trying to
purchase it.
The well known Dundee and Ymir
properties are being energetically
worked. At a very lute date a new
and rich vein or lead has been discovered on the Dundee property. Assays
from ore taken from the new vein
have just been mado and tho returns
ivere from Sto to 8120 in gold values.
It is from four to nine feet in width.
A crosscut tunnel which has just been
started is being run from tho :;ii(l-font
level of tho old mine and all of the
work will he centred upon this new
lead for somo time to come. It is
said that a deal is pending to sell this
property to an English company. At
the Vmir a tunnel has been started
on the surface at the 1200 foot level,
and it is expected that the lead will
he tupped there in the near future.
The 80-stamp mill is running full
blast, and it is said that the ore that
is being taken from the mine is sufli-
cicnt to keep 10 more stumps en-
gaged.
At the Venus mine work is being
carried on hy u smull force of men.
They are concentrating the work on

A BADLY INIfORMED ORGAN.
As' an example of the stuiV with
which Liberal organs are feeding
their readers we quote from The Victoria Times:
��� "Mr. Earle boasts very loudly about
Liberals deserting their party by hundreds, It would be more satisfactory
if he would give the names of a few.
We admit that Mr. Cook lias gone
over on the promise of a Senatorship
from Sir Charles, which he could not
get from the Liberals and because he
had been repeatedly rejected by a
strong Liberal constituency because
of his treachery. Mr. Charlton, Mr.
.Martin and Mr. Rlohardson are Lib
erals and will support the Government
in the House if they are elected, although ou some minor matters they
are.not in accord with their leaders.
We"deslre to draw the attention of
Mr. Earle to the ease of tlio Hon..John
CoBtlgan, who was a member of several Conservative administrations and
will be elected as a Liberal on Wednesday next. What drove the Hon.
Qeorge E. Foster from York, N.B., to
go down before the strongest man in

constituency established in 1888, and
which has been strongly Liberal from
the first. Last Thursday it elected
the Conservative candidate, Mr. T.
W. Taylor, by the respectable majority of 158. This is interesting to Canadians everywhere, as an indication
of the trend of political sentiment in
Manitoba. The party maohine, as
constructed and directed by Mr. Sifton, was employed to its full capacity,

morsel: "The drama which for some
months has been unrolled in.-outh
Africa approaches its end. A few difficulties of detail, a few more cannon
shots, and it will be over. Force will
have triumphed over right, over justice and courage. The heroic people of
the Transvaal pay with their blood
and their liberty for the audacious
wish to remain masters of their own
country. They fall, and the conquerors are about to divide the spoil,
as brigands do after having assassinated a traveler in a corner of a
wood."

CONDITIONS IN THE YUKON.
Sifton'. "Moral Reform" Letter
Was a Mere Election Dodge.
On October 30 the Winnipeg Tribune
published an interview with Mr. II.
C. Lisle, (i barrister, who was on his
way home to England from Dawson.
Mr. Lisle sai'l ho hatl read the report of Sir llibbert .'upper's speech'at
Brandon in regard to Yukon matters.
Sir llibbert Tupper, he said, hud
not stated one-tenth of what he might
truly havo said in regard to the manner in whieh tho administration of
affaire had heen conducted there since
the rush to the gold, fields commenced, Mr, Lisle is an Englishman, and
says ho lias no particular interest
in Canadian politics; and lie is, therefore, able to give an unprejudiced
opinion in regard to the matter, lie
declare that the manner in which the
officials have acted and are still acting iB simply shucking to anyone accustomed to Hritish ideas of government. The "back door" system which
has prevailed there has been disgraceful aud unblushing. It is, of
course, not easy to get definite evidence m regard to transactions of this
kind. The otlielals who have heen
bribed, do not, of course, publish that
fact; and the people who have bribed
them natuarlly keep quiet on the subject for fear of having the concessions
thoy have improperly obtained taken
from them. In such matters one lias
to rely hugely on circumstantial evidence. In other parts of the world,
the popular presumption is that government officials are honorable,
straightforward men; in Dawson the
public unanimously believes the larger
number of the officials are corrupt.
Mr. Lisle was also ashed whether
lie.was in Dawson at the time Mr.Sif-
ton's letter requesting the closing of
tho gambling nouses and and either
dives was receive''; antl, if so, what
steps had been taken to give effect to
it.
"Yes," said Mr. Lislo, "it arrived
before 1 left, and it caused the greatest amusement in Dawson. The only
thing that was done in connection
ivith it was for Mr. Ogilvie to write
back to Mr. Sifton, informing him
that there was an immense amount of
capital invested in tho gambling
houses referred to,"which it would not
be safe to summarily confiscate, and
suggesting that the matter should bo
allowed to stand over until nest June.
That is bow tbe matter stands at
present. Dp at Dawson, we look upon this simply as an election dodge
on the part of Mr. Sifton. it is generally believed that there is an understanding between Mr. Sifton and Mr.
Ogilvie In the matter, of course before any reply is received by Mr. Ogilvie the elections will lie over; and
then, if the Oovernment is sustained,
matter, will undoubtedly he allowed
to go on in the same old way. Why,"
said Mr. Lisle, "1 myself have heard
Mr. OgilTie personally juke about the
matter, and declare that it would he
impossible for Dawson to exist without those institutions. These institutions are practically licensed by tho
Government,and form the chief means
of revenue for carrying on what, elsewhere, would he municipal undertakings. The gambling-house keepers,
tlie dance-house keepers and the prostitutes are regularly summoned and
fined 850 hy the Mounted Police, who
have a list of them for this purpose.
There is no attempt made to bring
any evidence against these people,
They come up to the court, plead
guilty aud play their S"><> flue is a
matter of course; and the girls laugh
and joke witll the magistrate when
they do so. 1 have seen lifty of them
before the court in a day. and they
look upon it as a regular thing, and
regard tbe line as practically a license
for carrying on their bus'iiess. No
attempt whatever is made to close up
tho places, and I have seen' gamblers
an hour after leaving the cotut carrying on their business again, just as
though nothing had happened. When
we want money for grants to our hospital or our other charitable institutions, an extra raid is, made on these
people for the purpose of obtaining
it. They are rounded up, and lined
8.10, andthe money is handed over to
the cause of 'sweet charity.'
"I may say, in conclusion," said
Mr. Lislo, "that there seems to be an
impression down here that things
have greatly improved in Dawson
since tho lirst rush of gold seekers has
ceased, and since Mr. Ogilvie and Mr.
Sonkler have .been sent up there. This,
however, is very erroneous. In sonic
respects, perhaps, things are a little
better than they,were; but practically
the same state of things prevails as
when tho complaints of the people of
Yukon were first made to the world.
If you do not hear so many Complaints
now as formerly, it is because the people there have come to the conclusion
that it is practically useless to try to
get redress, and that they must grin
and bear it. The I lovernment, apparently, thinks that because we are up
there Bo far out of the world,our complaints can be safely Ignored, and we
are left to the mercy of the officials
and treated as though we really had
no rights whatever. The condition of
affairs there would limply shock any
one accustomed to the normal state of
things in a liritisli community j and
tbe only thing that surprises me is
that when there is so much material
on which to base charges, Sir llibbert Tupper has been so comparatively
moderate   in presenting his case."
NOT SO EASY.
"1 suppose Mr. Rich man is delighted to get all bis daughters off his
hands?" remarked ono worldy-wlse
person to another,
"I'm no sure about that," returned
tbe other,' "for he's bad to put nil
his sons-iii-law ou their feet and keep
them there."

OVER HALF    A MILLION.
A Large -expenditure Hy  the C. P. R.
For the IioliBon Bridge.
Since tlio work started at Robson
for the construction of the massito
bridge which is to be erected across
the Columbia Kiver, rapid progress
has been mado. Engineers Armstrong
of Montreal, and Blandy, of Nelson,
have been engaged in surveying for
the track nnd the approach to tho
bridge on the East side of the Kiver,
and their work is now half completed.
In a few 'lays the track will be located. Pete Genelle & Co. have been
given the contract for Ton piles. Tho
firm has established its camp at Burton and has a large number of men
enguged and is filling the order as rapidly as possible. Messrs. Poupore
and McVeigh havo been awarded the
contract to build a temporary bridge
or an approach to tlie bridge proper,
a distance of 1,400 feet. This work
will be started immediately ou tlie arrival of the piles. It is rumored that
thoy will be given tlie contract to construct the false work across the River.
This work has to be completed before the further construction of the
bridge is carried on. At the completion of the false work over (10,000
yards of earth from the west side,
will be taken across the river and the
approach to the bridge on the east
side will be graded and the temporary
approach which will be built on
piles will be filled in. Mr. John
ilunn who has the contract for the
erection of the live piers has located
a quarry about a mile from the
bridge, where the stone will bo obtained. The work wiil bo pushed as ra
pidly as possible as the greater por
tion of it has to be done during low
water.
A contractor in figuring on the en
tire cost of the bridge has placed the
amount at (650,000.
CONSERVATIVE VICTORY.
Centre Winnipeg Returns a Supporter
of the   Manitoba (lovernment.
On 'Thursday last, for tho first time
in tlie history of the riding, Centre
Winnipeg elected a Conservative. It
had always been looked on as a Lib
oral hive and the Liberals had expect
ations of carrying it this time.
At the last general elections iu Man
Itoba Col. McMillan retained liis
seat by 113 majority, tlie smallest he
ever received when contesting the
constituency in the interests of tbe
Liberals. His appointment as Lieut
Governor made tlio seat vacant and ou
Thursday. Thomas W. Taylor, Conservative, was returned for Centre
Winnipeg by LIS majority over Robert Mutr, Liberal. Tlie .Siftoniau machine was behind Muir, and all its
powerful Influences were brought to
bear but the tide had turned and tbe
Conservatives won tlio day. This may
be taken as indicative of the results
in Manitoba on Wednesday.

to reach half a million. There aic

STREET CAR ACCIDENT.
Cars Bunch on a Stoop Hill in Montreal Witli Disastrous Result.
Montreal.Nov. 5.���Six persons were
seriously injured and a score of others
cut in tho face and hands yesterday
afternoon as a result of an electric
car, which bad almost reached the
summit of Cote Neiges Hill, backing
up and colliding with another car on
the way up,whloh, in turn, ran into a
third car which was followed by a
fourth and fifth. The inotorninn of
the ii th car is said to have come to a
dead stop inBtead of running back and
allowing the others to do the same.
His action caused all tho cars to come
together with nbove results. The
company says the accident was duo to
a trolley coming off the pulley and
had the head cars remained quiet
none would have been hurt. 'The cause
of tho accident could have been remedied in a few minutes but tho passengers, ranic stricken, rushed in on the
motoriuan and prevented him using
tho brake.
POLITICS IN U. S.
New York, Nov. 5.���Only at the
headquarters and at the leading polit-
cal clubs were there any traces of political activity today. Those in charge
of the campaign employed their time
in dictating statements for publication, and writing final letters of admonition or of instructions to party
leaders in the eity or tho state.
Seattle, Wash., Nov. .1.��� Both Re
publicans and Democrats are claim
ing for their respective candidates a
complete victory in thi. state. Republicans have anounced the complete
figures of the poll of 551 out of 10111
precincts in the state, which gives
them a majority of 7757 over the entire opposition. The remaining precincts it is asserted, will give them
over 12,000. The Democrats refuse to
anuoiince their poll but say that Bryan will carry the state by 10,000 and
that the entire state ticket from governor down will go in by over 15,000
majority.
THE OLD. DUFFER IS SEASICK
London, Nov. S.��� The Brussels cor
respondent of The Standard says that
the Transvaal agency there has received information that former president Kruger is seriously ill on the
Dutch warship (leiderlands. on which
he is journeying to Europe. This report
is probably another version of tho recent report that Mr. Kruger was suffering from sea sickness.
MINING  NEWS
The annual meeting of the Black
cock (Ymir) Gold Mining Company
was held at the orlice of the company
Inst week and all the former ollieers
were re-elected. Following are some
extracts from tlio annual report,which
is of an encouraging nature: "As
soon as tlie sleighing sets in more ore
will be shipped to the smelter. During the past year much Important
work lias been carried on in connection with the Blackcock mine. Tbe
principal work on the property, some
of which was carried out prior to
the acquisition of the mine by the
company, consists of two shafts respectively 65 feet and 110 feet, witli
drifts and crosscuts therein amounting to ubout a further 100 feet. There
is also In addition about 000 foot of
tunneling and a number of open cuts,
crosscuts, small shafts, stupes, etc.
These various workings indicate the
existence of a largo and valuable body
of gold-bearing ore.
"In March and April last two carloads of ore were shipped to tlie
Northport smelter. These shipments
aggregated 42 tons 7H2 pounds of ore.
and returned to the company tho net
sum of 81,-1(10.4-1,o. an average of over
(88 per ton net. This is an extremely
satisfactory return.    It mny he stated
that there aro also considerable quantities of milling ore on tlio various
dumps nt tho mine, and thai prior to
the incorporation of the e_iii| my between .on ami 300 tons of high grade
ore was shipped from   the   mine.    All
work hns been carried on in un economical manner nnd it is hoped that
before long the finances of the company will permit of further active development. "The expenditure of u

When things are "tbe best" they
become "the best selling." Abraham
Hare, a lending druggist, of Belleville, (��.. writes: "Electric Hitters
nre the best selling Hitters 1 have
handled in 2(1 years." You know
why'.1 Most diseases begin in disorders
of stomach, liver, kidneys, bowels,
blood and nerves. Electric Hitters
tones up the stomach, regulates tho
liver, kidneys and bowels, purifies
the blood, strengthening the nerves
hence cures multitudes of maladies
It builds up the entire system, l'nts
new life aud vigor into any weak,
sickly, run down man or woman.

WORKMAN, ASK   Vol IR WIFE.
The Liberals, when they were in

they would reduce the cost of    living.
