lionrs bnt nothing eventful occurred
save the Btaleuiont made by Mr. ray-
lor on behalf of the powder magnjsttie,
Ihonub n considerable amount of busi-
mss was clone.
Mr Crease appeared before the
Oonnoil en behalf, of tha Ko.iter.ny
Lake (iciicrnl Hospital and stated th it
Mis Roderick Robertson nud Mrs,
stocks hnd now collected $2,010 towards the building fond, and he there

to draw a obeqiie for $600 in fnvor of
tin> hospital.
Mr,Crease tendered bis thanks to the
Counoil ami asked if the Counoil would
grant him oue month's leave of ah-
8BH0B from his duties as priliue mogis-
tiate. Ho bad nut had a holiday for
three year.-. On the motion of Aid.
Fletcher the necessary leavo wns
granted,
Mr 0. A. Waterman presented tho
aooatint of tbe celebration committee
and asked for u oliequfi for J1?B for tho
iletieit. which included ?'")0 for the
cricket club. Tho Council thought the
cricket club should forego this sum as
no match was played on Dominion
Day, and on tho motion of Aid. Brer,
resolved that S125 he paid to the celebration eoniiiiiittea.
Mr. 8. S Taylor, Q C, then addressed >he.Council on the nowder magazine (|iiestion. He said that be hoped
the difticully would now he settled.
A tpmuorary building outside the
two mile limit was now hemp erected
ami thin would ho used by both the
Hamilton and (.limit Powder Oompany
He had three requests to ninko on be-
hnlf of his clients; (1) Thnt the
prosecution against the Giant Powder Company he withrdawu ; (2) that
the City petition the Government to
remit the fine of 5300 imposed ou the
Hamilton Powder Company; {8) that
Ihe Oity would permit his clients to
keep some 3000 or 3B00 pounds of powder in the present building for the convenience of tho general public. Mr.
Taylor explained that with regard to
the Hamilton Powder Company, much
trouble had arisen owing to a mistake
over a telegram which had beeu sent
by Mr. Ualliher's partner to the company.
Mr. Taylor wa�� now prepared to
give an undertaking that the powder
would ho removed ns soon as it was
practically possible to do so.
Tho City Clerk remarked thnt he
had received a complaint from Mr.
llorley, who owned property adjoining that ou which the temporary magazine was b'ling erected, thnt tho new
building was not more than l)jj miles
from the, City limits.
Mr. Taylor said ho was not aware of
the fact but would at once telegraph to
his clionts mid advise them to have n
building well without tho two mile
limit.
The Mayor though the Council hnd
no power to rorait lines
Aid. Fletcher said that he did not
understand any move was boiog made.
Mr. Taylor assured tbe Counoil that
preparations for moving the powler
were being mndo but of conrse it was
impossible to move 45,000 ponuds of
powder in a moment.
Aid. Fletohur said that tbe powder
companies hnd taken a long time to
nuike up their minds For tbe last
five years thoy bad beeu pressed tc
move but only complied when the
present prosecution was undertaken.
Mr. Taylor said that since the indictment tho companies bad done all in
wen power to move. Finally, on the
motion of Aid. Beor it wa's moved
that tho matter be referred to the Mayor
and City Solicitor to settle.
Eire Warden Thompson suggested
hat the City should purchase a second
nana 'chemical" that was going
wieap, It was 120 gallon machine and
would cost between $700 and $1800 to
o aid down in Nelson. A new 60
gauon machine would oost 13050 nnd
therefore the Oity bad an opportunity
of securing a bargain,
Aid. Fletcher did not know where
the money was to come from.
Aid Beer thought that quite enough
r-m, h,e"n, upended on streets. The
��� ' s '.mltl Rive more attention to fire
Promotion and sewers now. If there

committee  and  he moved that it be
ljft lo them   to   decide  what   lo   Co.
His resolution was carried.
Mrs. Gilbert's account: wus referred
to Messrs. Thomson and Kirkpatriok,
with power to settle tho same. Tho
report of the Finance Committee, was
read in which accounts amounting
to $8,883.88 wore recommended to be
paid. Aid. Fletcher was much perturbed at the different prices paid for
pipe. Sometimes it was w cents and
other times 14 conts. The Lawrence
Hardware wero prepared to supply the same at the uniform prico of
nine cents and bo thought the City
should not pay more than this. He
recommended the Finance Oommittee
to look more carefully into their plumbers bills.
The following tenders for sowors were
theu read���that of Josla Thompson's,
boing some two hours late, was not
opened:
Hugh Macdonald. $11,800, rook excavating per foot. (0, B0; Onslow Newl-

$15,668 80, rock excavating per foot,
$0 15,
MoBenth was awarded   tho contract.
A letter from Mr. Shannon begging
that the Council allow the Chinese
Laundry to continue at the corner of
Mines Road and Kootenay streets, was
deferred lor further consideration
Maodouald and Johnson wrote sending the contract between the City of
Nelson and the Electric Tramway Co ,
Mr. Stocks also sent the required deposit of $2000
On iho motion of Aldetman Thomson it was resolved that the Mayor and
Oity Clerk be authorized on bebalf of
the City to execute tho contract be
tween the Oity and the Electric Tramway Company; and. when acknowledging the receipt of their cheque, to
express its satisfaction at the actual
commencement, of tho work of construction although the By-law allowed
them four months from tho passing of
pamo within which to commence
work ; further that they should convey
to tne company the. City's best wishes
for the successful inauguration and
operating of tho street railway system
iu Nelson.
A licenso was granted to H. Wright
to sell beer at the Opera House during
the Lucrosso  Club concert last   night.
On motion of Aid. Thomson it was
resolved to lay a sewer to the Orinkinay
hospital aud adjoining houses.
On the motion of Aid. Thomson it
was resolved that the City Clerk ro-
movo tbo flags left iu the streets from
Dominion Day.
A long discussion arose owing to a
letter from Mr. McCollons, tho purchaser of the City debentures, asking
whether he might be allowed interest
accruing from the date when he wns
ready ro pay for tho same. It was de
eideel to refer tho same to tho City Solicitor.
Taylor and Hanuington wrote on behalf of owners of tho Broken Hill
Block requesting the Oity to desist
from depostiug mud under it and also
from rilling np the creek and threatening more injunctions.
On tho motion of Aid. Fietoher it
was resolved thnt the Oity Engineer
be instructed to inspect the Broken
Hill Block as to its safety; also that
the City Clerk see to the immediate
removal of the material placed outside
the new addition.
A petition for a temperary sewer on
Victoria street between Josephine
and Hendyrx streets was referred to
the Board of Works,
With regard to the Traves appoal
which will he heard in Vancouver, tho
Council decided that the City Solicitor
should go there ami employ such help
as he needed.
Aid. Beer said that he mnoh regretted the imnression going about Iho
town that any discrimination bad
heen shown by the City in the fire |
limit qnestion. He hoped that some ,
arrangement could be made to induce Traves to give way as it was unreasonable to think that any oiti/.en
would wilfully oppose a law which
was for the obivous welfare of the City
Aid. Fletcher said no settlement
could he made. Tho Oity must enforce
the by-law good or bad. If the bylaw was bad they must make ono
thnt cannot be evaded.
Aid. Thomson wbb granted two

A MONTREAL SCANDAL
THE BOUNDARY DISPUTE
A Eenevolently Inclined Lottery Concern A Paris Dispatch ��ajs That the States
Wa8 Sobbed of Ten Thousand Doll- Is Eeceivini the Sympathy of
are by Its Clerks.
Mi ntreal, Aug. 1.���Gilbert Cyr,

There is a great, sensation iu tho local policy playug circles of Montreal
this evening. Montreal has half a
dozen so called benevolent, institutions
which which under the goise of purity run policy shops. One of these is
the Soeieto Eculs Gratites eles Eufants
Pauvres. Its place of business is on
St. Lawrence stroot, one of the mnin
thoroughfares of the lily. The money
raised is supposed to i o devoted to the
free edueii ion of poor children and
the socioty has a shoool foi this purpose. Regular poiliey tickets are
sold, the usual gigs boing played.
For some timo past the managei. Ernest Davin, has been suspicious that
everything has not been going quite
right. Tho losses wero heavier than
usual. Detectives wore called in and
the result is tbat tonight colls in the
Central prison station nre occupied by
George St. Girmaiu, a clerk in the
company's employ, Thos. Berry, F.
Warnet, Frank Tigh and Gns Siln-
nnro, while dectectives aro looking for
five more men.
The warrants upon which the men
wer.i arrested charge them with having, through conspiracy, robbed tho
sooiety of at least $10,000. Ernest David the manager, says the loss may go
as high as $18,000, Tho mono of operation was that one of the agents of tho
society would make a return of a ticket sold nud tho clerk would hold the
slip out until tho drawing had takeu
place Theu the slip would be returned to the ageut, tbe winning number
substituted and tbe next day tbo
tioket corresponding would ho presented
for payment.

he adjourned, as the Chamber could not
discuss questions in the absence of a
responsible Government The Chamber finally decided to deal with tbe
non-contentious measure only.

entire distance from the Run de Oath-
lion, where Mme Droyfus resides, to

however,   have been   scrinns.

New V'oik. Aug. 1.���An afternoon
paper publishes the following under
Paris date: Official circles here are
following with olose interest the
American-Canadian oonfl ict in the
diplomatic world. The view is taken
that although no French interests are
directly involved in the dispute nevertheless oue cannot but be struck with
tbo resemblance tho measures employed by Omnia to strenghen her pretensions to Lynn Canal bear to those nBed
in regard to France by tbe Newfoundland Government. In case a foieign
nation is brought face to face with an
independent Government whose wishes
England respects but on whom it ia
impossible to force her own. On this
point a piomineiit diplomat snid his
colonial Government which relies on
its own interests cares nothing for
the interests of the Empire, assumes
a lofty bearing when it enters upon a
diplomatic dispute with another power
aud does not hesitate to threaten to
call on the English navy to defend itB
interests, but if the Cabinet at London
demands that the colony make sacrifices in the interest of the Empire it
bases its refusal on its own independent position. Such a situation is
abnormal. Foreign powers cannot ao-
cept such contradictions between inde-
ueudent colonies withont military
force with which to make themselves
respected in the United Kingdom,
which possesses tbe military force,
but^which cannot intervene in the decision of the colonies. This view 1b
very general in the foreign offices of
tbe country and conseqsently the-
United States is winning considerable
sentimental smypathy in the present
dispute with Canada. One of the
many proofs of this faot was revealed
in tbo following observations made by
a young writer, an authority on colon
ial affairs : "One of the most important questions that Imperialists havo to
consider is the speedy linking ot San
Eraucisoo with the Philippines by
cable. Just as tha trans-Paclflo cable
proposed by Australia und New Zealand is destined to promote the selfiish
interests of England so a line from
San Francisco to Manila by way of
Honolulu and Guam would serve the
interests of the whole world.
"It was proposed at Ottawa to utilize
the Australo-Canadian oable as a means
of communication with China and
Japan. This doubtless was premature.
The Amerioan line will always bave
tho advantage of being the shortest
conrse. Nevertheless has'e should be
made, for the first on the gronnd is
sure to reap many advantages. Already
Canada has established a Japan-China
direct steamship service and it ig not
possible that Uuited States will allow
electrical, like maritime communication, in the Pacific to be wrested
from her by Canada."
A FALSE REPORT.
Loudon,Aug. 1.���A few days ago, a
news agency issued a statement, on
tbe alleged authority of the Colonial
Office here that the AlaBkan qnestion
hinged on the interpretation of the
Anglo-Russian treaty of 1825 defining
the boundary and explaining Great
Britain's position with considerable
detail, saying: "The 'Jolonial Office is
not aware tho United States has offered Canada a portiou of tbe canal" and
adding that it was "not correot to
state that Lord Salisbury was hampered by Sir Wilfrid Laurier"
Mr. John Anderson, prinoipal olerk
of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary
ot State for the Colonies, says no snob
statement has been issued by the Colonial Offioo to a representative of the
news agency and that absolutely no
sucb particulars in regard to the Alaskan question have been given to any
representative of that agency which
has heretofore used the authority of
the British Colonial Office entirely
withont warrant.

THIRD OF SERIES
The Yacht Race at Lake
St. Louis.
DUGGANS CLEVER WORK
Good Seamanship Had a Lot to Do With
the Victory Over the Amerioan
Boat YeBte:day.
Dorval, Aug. 1.���With weather favorable to his boat and good seamanship Duggan, the skipper of the Canadian defender, Gleneairn II, won his
first race nnd the third of the series
for Seawanhaka Cup this afternoon.
From the very start, when Gleneairn
crossed the line nine seconds ahead, it
was apparent thnt the Canadian boat
was at a very much greater advantage
towards the American challenger than
she had vet been during the previous
racos and while on the first leg,
which was a beat to windward, the
Constanco rounded the buoy 58 seconds
ahead of the Gleneairn, the spirits of
the supporters of the Canadian boat
lose higher. It waa either to be a
Gloucairn victory or a very close fln��
ish. It had boon thought that tbe
Constanco would hnve gained more on
this leg as yesterday she bad shown
pretty conclusively tbat she could beat
to windward very much better than
the Canadian boat. After rounding
the first buoy, Constance set a spinnaker well forward, using it as a balloon jib, while the Glecairn held on
under reaching jib for quite a time,
wheu she followed her rival's example Here something seemed to be the
matter with the Glercairn's foresail
and Duggan took in his large jib.
Both boats carried full mainsails and
Giencairn appeared to gain slightly
and when the seoond buoy wbb rounded by Constance at 3 ;06:20 it waa
shown that the Gleneairn was now 85
seconds behind, having reduced her
ri-al's lead by IS seconds. On the first
leg of the second round whioh waa
another beat to windward Gleneair"
held well on ro the Americtin U*.;
Sometimes one seemed to be gaining
and then the other. Giencairn waa
now sailing much better than before
and she rounded the six mile buoy just
41 seconds after tbe Oonstanoe, having
lost only six seconds on this leg to
windward. Constance now followed
new tactics by trying to force Gleoairn
into the shore so as to prevent the Oan
adian boat blanketing her, but Giencairn went right on and finally fdid
succeed in blanketing tbe Constance.
Giencairn began now to pull a little
ahead and as she neared tbe eight
mile buoy she slowly increased tbe
distance hotween her and Constance,
rounding the buoy at 2 :61 :87 just 22
seconds ahead of the Constance havi.ig
gained one minute and three second!
in this two mile run before the wind.
The wind had uow dropped somewhat
and tbe hopes of the Oanadians ran
high as it was now a sn'-u race for tht
Canadian boat. Tbat the ii hopes v,ere
well grounded was shown by the fact
that on the last leg to windward
Giencairn gained 13 seconds on tbe
Constance. During this leg both boata
jockeyed going about and about in effort to* blanket one another. Giencairn
finally passed the ten mile msik at
3:22: 30, the Constance following 85
seconds later. It was now a sure
race for the Canadian boat the only
question boing as to the amount of the
lead. Tne wind was now moon lighter
and this run before the wind waa
the slowest of the day.
Giencairn gradulaly forged ahead
and finished at 3:58:26, tbree minutes
and six seconds ahead of Oonstanoe.
Tho dance given by the members :of
the Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Olnb
an tho club houBe in honor of the visiting yachtsmen was a great success.
Tho race tomorrow, whioh will be
over a triangular oonrse. ia being looked forward to with intense interest in

NELSON. B. O.
made to-night in tbe House of Commons, when Hon A. II. Blair intro
luoed the resolutions co'erlng the railway subsidies." Pive years ago it
would bave heen appalling news, XliC
ibortest   way  to desoribe the  Liberal
policy of today would lie In say that it
.s tbe exact opposite in every detail of
what it was when the parly was in
Opposition.
The Miner desires to repeat, especially for the benefit of the editor of
The Tribune, whoso discourtesy is not
less marked than his audacity, that
there is no such organization as tie
Mino Owners' Protective As-orintion
now iu existence There was an Association of that name, hut it ceased to
exist last year. The editor named is
also open to correction in tbo statement
ihat The Miner has said the "head
push of the Association was a politician. " That is an ungrammatical creation which The Minor begs most firmly
to disavow.
EXTRAORDINARY  DELUSION.
There is a Labor organ in Victoria
called The British Columbia Workman, and just now it is disconsolate
over tho expulsion of Mr. Martin from
tho Provincial Cabinet, There is no
one left to " take the initiative in labor reform. " "Thore iB no use blinking the-fact," it says, "with Martin
iu the Government the working man
felt safe and slept o' nights. Without
bim���well, we prefer not to think what
will be our fato''���manning, of oourse
tbat it is too terrible to contemplate.
This is wilful self-delusion, for any
one with a grain of sense who has followed Mr. Martin's career since he entered publio life knows well tbat he
cares as little for the working man as
for any other, and that he oares for
any one besides himself only iu proportion as his own interests may be advanced by it. Bnt it would probably
bo useless to assure The Workman of
this; it is joined to its idol, and would
doubtless prefer to be let alone
There must,howover.be a large number among the cIiibs for whom   it   pre-
tendB to speak   who  are  not so  easily
deluded, and who have   spirit  enough
to resent imposition.    These must see,
if thoy reflect, that to idealize Mr.Martin ns a labor reformor is the most   nr-
rnut nonsense.    What   has he doue, or
attempted, since   coming to this Province to   deserve   any special  gratitude
or   thanks   from   the   working   man?
What labor reform has ho  proposed  or
eft'eoted?   The   exclusion    of  Chinese
and'Japanese was tho effort of   former
Governments,     and    Mr.     Martin   is
not in a position to claim the  least of
such 'credit as may attach  to it.    It is
said   that ho conceived the   legislation
to   exclude    aliens   from   our  placor
mines.   Wo   can   scarcely   imagine  a
simplicity   great  enough   to    suppose
that this was iu the interest of   labor.
The measure has   retarded   to a  most
serious extent   the   industrial development  of that portion of   the  Province
to   which   it specially   applied,     and
whatever does that is an injury rather
than a help to   labor.    There   only remains tho Eight Hour law.    To him is
also   asoribed   tho   ps-tcrnity   of  that
measure.    Who   can soy that  labor   is
or promises to   becomo advantaged   hy
It?   We take tho  Slocan region as  the
one   most   familiar to readers  of  The
Miner.     Throughout   it   contentment
end   hope  reigned   everywhere  eight
short months   ago.    The laboring man
who ip known as the miner was happy
to work his ten hours a day for the liberal wage of 18.80,    There was no dissatisfaction   felt  or    expressed,    The
mining industry was being prosecuted
���with perfect content on   the side  both
of the employed   and  employer, and a
season of great activity was confidently
anticipated.    Thero  was   no   demand
for a "reform,"   not oven the whisper
of  a suggestion that a roform was   necessary.    This labor reformer interferes
with   his   Eight Honr   law,    creating
disturbance   where before   was  poace,
strife where naught  but harmony had
prevailed, nnd compelling   the laborers
themselves to forgo that cherished nor
sonal liberty to   dispose of  tbeir  timo
as they pleased.    How   absurd to  dignify such an achievement ns that with
tho title of reform !   And bow inexplicable that any class of men can delude
themselves   with   tbe  belief   that the
person responsible for it is  a   benefactor of their kind!

Madrid, Aug. 1.���The sece.nel session
.if tho courtmnitial of Generals Toral
and Parojn, who are cbaiged with surrendering Santiago de Cuba to tho
Americans, without haviug exhausted
all means of defence, took placo todav.
General Fareja, in his defence, said
the garrison of the City of Santiago do
Cuba lacked food, many ot tho soicliers
having died of hunger. Previously,
however, ho acldoel, the troops fought
bravely and many offlei is and men
worked. In addition the hospitals
lacked medicines. The general read several telegrams exchanged between authorities at Washington and Major General Shatter, the latter showing himself confident of forcing tho surrender
of  Santiago.
General Toral made a similar do-
fonce. He said Santiago wns defenceless aud that it was impossible to bold
out longer. He road a telegram sent
him by Capt. General Blanco, who
after consulting with tbe authorities nt
Madrid approved of capitulation. Another Spanish officer testified thai
when he entered Santiago he found
three-quarters of tho troops sick. General Rnbi gave testimony to tho effect
that further resistance would have
been equivalent to death of the remainder of the troops, Ool. Ordonnez testified that be was blockaded and therefore did not take part in the conference
when it was deoided to surrender,
Bnt ho sail! he believed all means of
resistance had been exhausted though
perhaps the oapltulation might have
been avoided by an attempt to break
through tbo enemies' lines, causing
much bloodshed. But, he added, the
spirit of the troops was weakened when
they lost all hope, of outside help.

Gaudet ami Erntst Moriu, of Ymir,are
bjck from Sixteen Mile Creek, where
tliey have been doing work on the California Group comuoBed of tbe California and Saoremento mineral claims.
They report that they have uuoovered
a ledge of rose quart!! well mineralized
with galena which can be traced some
0000 feet. I paw some specimens report d to have come from the property
nnd tbey resemble the Ymir mine ore.
The vein is from six to eight feet in
width,
The Ymir mill has shut down owing ro the breaking of the main fly
wheel whioh runs tbe sUraps. The
. coiiitiany have telegraphed to Chicago
to tlie Gates Iron Works for a duplicate, which will lie hero in about two
weeks' tune. The company are erecting a large sized three story bunk and
cook house for the mill workers, so
that all the men around the mill will
be employed ; the closiug down of the
mill will uot stop tneir time. This
company has its employees' interest at
huart ;iud aie continually putting in
improvements for their benefit.
On Hidden Creek,   E,   H.   Winslow
aud L. J. Wiuslow have   two  olaims,
Green     Mountain     and     California
Through thorn runs a   strong ledge
pure white   quartz, well  .nixed
white iron aud zinc.  The ledge is from
two to four feet in width   and can   be
meed the   length   of the claims; only
surface work   has   been   done  but  an
average   assay   is   obtainable ot   |6 in
gold. The owners inteud to sink on the
property,   when there is no doubt that
good   assays   will   be   obtained.   The
property is a fissure in granite e.nd lies
about fonr miles from the railroad.
T. A. Helm, consulting engineer for
the Rio Grande Gold Mining Company,
came here laBt evening and went out
to the property today ; he is well pleased with tlio result gained by the work
under superintendent Davis. Mr. Helm
expects to soon have the property ou
a shipping staudard.
L. J. Wiuslow has charge of the
work ou the Hidden Creek trail, this
trail will bo continued up the creek
a distance ot about five miles.
An averag i assay across four feet of
the lead on the Gnienue mineral claim
went in gold $l!Ui4; silver $8.40. Total $2S. 04. This propjrty is near the
Black Cock miueral claim and has
had considerable work done on it, the
chief being a tunnel some 60 feet in
on the lead. The owners of the property are J, Petrie, Willy Blais nud C.
K. Desrosiers.
The Canadian Pacific Exploration
Ltd., owning and operating the Porto
Heso Group at Ymir, intend to pnt in
au electric power plant at an early
date. It will be installed at tbe forks
and will run the compressor and mill.
It, is also the intention of the management to enlarge the mill.

Yesterday the Hall Mines exported
IS68 sacks of copper matte valued nt
*a7,7ii0 to the Uuited States. The
value was made up as follows: Gold,
|418; copper,   |9,818i  Bilver,   *18,004.
"I do not belive there is a man, woman or child in all the East Kooteuay
country who is uot employed," said
Charles Tbois to the Spokesman Review.
He has iust returned from au in
spectiou of the varied commercial
and mining interests of himself and associates in that big district. "I tried
to get a force of men to j-nt to work
on a six-mile strotch of road which we
are building from the Chickamunstone
mino to the maiu Government road,
and I never had so much trouble in
my life getting a crew together. The
aotivity in tho miues and the railroad
building just begun has made East
Kootenay a buzzing hivo of industry. "
Mr. Theis says that the work of
1 uilding the new line of road from
Craubrook to the North Star aud Sullivan Hill has commenced, aud will
bo pushed with all haste. There are
shipping mines awaiting tho completion of these transportation   facilities.
"Is there much talk about the Windermere country?" asked The Spokos-
man-Reviow man.
"Yes, there is considerable talk about
it,but the activity in the camps nearer
home, on tho North Star hill, on
Tracy creok, on Bull river, on Moyie
Lake and several other camps around
Fort Steelo, has absorbed most of the
miners and prospectors, and not many
have gone so far north as Windermero,
so I doubt if the country is being
prospected as well as was expected.
The uiineB are away up in the air in
that distriot. I aro told that as a rule
the porperties whioh are making the
showings about which so much iB heard
are always above the timber lino, where
the biiow is present all the yonr around.
"I am aoqpalnted with some of the
owners of the Rod Line claim, which
was bonded last week for 1100,000. It
is a big ledge, with stringers miming
through ir of very high grade ore. It
is said that tho average values across
18 feet of ledge are $10 to $18. It is far
np on the cliffs, where thero is no
timber but plonty of water from the
snow banks, which never melt on-
tircly. Governor Mackintosh's people
have paid down $10,000, and have
started a big crew of mcu to open tho
mine." ���    ���,
Moyie Leader: A. 1'. Lamieux arrived hero from Nelson this week
to take charge of putting in the tramway for the St. Eugene hutweeu the
mine and the contcentrator on the
shore of the lake near the C. P. R.
track.
The tram will be about 11,100 feet in
length and will be nf the donble rope
pattern, tho latest uow in use. The
tram will be fitted with 20 buckets for
the present and it will have a capacity
of 16 tons per hour. Nine derricks
will be required to hold these cables
up. Most of the foundations for these
derricks are built, and the carponters
aro now working on the terminal nonr
tho oro bin at the mine. As soon as
the ore bins aud teriniual at tho mill
aro completed the cable will bo strung
and the tramway will be ready for
operation. At tho concentrator the
work of boarding iu and shingling the
main buildiug is rapidly proi<r��s-iing,
and the two ore bins are  beiug   frum-
ed.    After the,   ore hins aro completed, I
and   the   terminal   for   the   tramway j
built, the work of   installing   the Pel-
���on waterwheel   and other   machinery ;
will be   proceeded with.     Exoavatlng
for the compressor   plant building will
begin   in   earnest   next    week.    This
building will likely be about   30x00 in
size aud will   be built   immediately to
the sonth of the concentrator
Work is being systematically pushed
in every department of Ibu Luke Shore
mine, and every indication shows that
J. O. Drewerv and his company mean
business. The huge boiler for Ihe compressor plaut has been put in place
and the bricklayers are now building
the furnace. The three shifts working
in the new tunnel are making good
progress. The new two story office is
about completed and received its las*
coat of paint this week. This buildiug
is oue of rim handsomest in Movie. It
is hnilt on a nice knoll overlooking

P. E. Seelye has returned from the
Alaxaudra-Uellev mine which is situated on the 2nd north fork of Lemon
Oreek. Tbis property is being worked
in a very caielol way and the management has every hope that it will soon
prove to be a rich mine: a car trick
and car havo recently been installed in
the lower tunnel   which is in 280 feet.
Five men are at work aud are exposing some very lich ore. Tho last assays went as high as S"7n. The vein
of this rich ore is 18 inches wide, it
can be traced for ilOli feet on the surface
nnd gives every promise of being continuous. Sixty feet more drifting ou
the present tunnel should locnto tbe
main ore shnte at s depth of 200 feet.
No effort is being made nowj to] turn
out ore but a larger staff of meu will
be put ou shortly and witbir a mouth
the mine should become a shipper.
The Alexandra-Dells? is situated three
miles from the Golden Wedge where
there is a ten stamp mill and Mr. Seelye
expeots to take his ore to this mill for
treatment.

for a mine, and built a first class ten-
stamp mill on tho property before it
was proved, subsequently throwing up
their bond,own several claims near Oro
and are uow at work on tho St.
Louis which gives promise of turning out well and giving baok some of
the $!)5,C00 spent by the company. The
reverses of the Oro peonle gave a set
back to the mines in the vicinity of
