he and Mr. Cotton had worked 0 in-
jointly to bring ahont the la 0 Conservative canons in Vancouver, at

.hud regretted that Mr. Oofton did not
attend tho canons and join in with
the views there expressed.
Asked whether he had any idon of
taking an active part in politics on this

Interview With Mr. George Beer Concerning Trade  and Minos There,
Mr.    George   liner   of    the   Nolso n
Hardware Co. has just  returned   from
a visit to tho Boundary Country.    Mr.
Beer informed 'iho Miner that lm iirst
of nil visited   Greenwood   where   he
found businesa very   quiet,    Ono brick
block wns being built and two or throe
wooden buildings for oommeroial purposes.    He BBW Mr. .Sprour, lato of  J.

docs not lind a very   largo demand   for
the opportunity of arriving by the brat hiB line  of  .mods as yot but lives in

Tlie Victoria Globe has the following to saj in its news columns. :
The politicul atmosphere looks no
clearer today than it did yesterday, for
naturally, nntil the Lieutenant-Governor returns, no change can be mado in
the onblnet.
This morning thn Premier, iu au
interview with the Globe, stated that
all the papers in connection with the
trouble inul been despatched to tbe
Lieutenant-Governor, and be presumed
they were aboard the Tees ou the wny
to Atlin now.
While not feeling at liberty to discuss the subject iriattM of the reasons
for uliio/i Mr, Martin bad been asked
to resign, the Premier denied Mr.
Maitin'fi statement to the effect that it
was an attempt to wreck the present
Government by driving from it all tho
Liberals villi the idea of forming a
Conservative Government.
"I do not fool at lib irty to refer to
that." sulci Mr. Semlin, "for it did
not come np in the Cabinet. I do not
see where Mr. Marin'draws his con
olusious from," went on Mr. Semlin,
''for there is nothing in my letter to
Mm to warrant it. and furthermore
it is utterly unfounded, Everybody
knows ih.it 1 hnve always been op
posed to the introduction of Dominion
party linn in Provincial affairs. "
As to the statement that he and Mr.
Cotton were conspiring to get rid of
Mr, Miirtiii. so that Mr. Hlggina
aud Mr. Helrooken might ho taken
into the Cabinet, tbe Premier remarked that it was tun absurd to require a
denial.
Mr. D. W. Higgine deolined to be
interviewed on thn situation further
than to state tc the Globe today tbat
��e wrote to Mi Martin demanding
die name of bis informant in reference to the statement that ho (Mr.TIig-
gmsi was conspiring to get rid of
the Attorney-General and enter a Government on Conservative lines.
In aconversation today Mr. Martin
JJ'd-iis interview published in the

has succeeded in closing down tho
nearest mine to Grueuwood, the Winnipeg, Both employers and iniuorB say
they have "no use" for tho bill thero.
However, thoy hope to evade tho act
by working   on the contract system.
Mr. Beei paid 4 short visit to Columbia, a small town of b-jt littlo im
portauoe nnd then went on to Grand
Porks. Hera ho found things generally "humming." Buildings were
going up nl! over the place. Now hotels, n steam laundry and electric light
works were in course of construction
and real estate is at a fancy prico.
Mr. Beer considers that Grand Forks
has bettor prospects thau any other
town 111 tho Boundary district. Tho
reporls of a smeller being built in
the town has helped to boom things
though it is not absolutely certain
whether   it   will   be   creeled    there
or at Columbia. Tbere nro no working
mines within 30 miles of Grand Porks.
The little town of Phoenix was also
visited. Mr. Beer thinks that Phoenix will hnve its boom somo day.
There are throe good mines within tho
town site, namely tbo Stemwindei,
Brooklyn and Ironside. All these
���nines are working regularly now uu
der tlui contract system. A quantity
of good looking oro is being brought
out and dumped. At the next point,
Oesoade City, Mr. Beer heard many
things about the railway. Tho uew 0.
P. li. freight rates nro generally considered to be too high ; bnt as these nre
prac'ioallv oonstru -lion rates it is hoped that tbey will be reduced later on.
Cascade is fairly quiet, people there
seem too intent on wailing for the
railway to hustle up business. On
Christina Lake shore (the lako is about
six miles from the town) there nre a
number of mineral properties which
are allowing up well. Mr. Beer was
greatly struck with the beauty of the
oountry, Great undulating plains cov
ored with glass unn no undergrowth
are the cl i -f ehari oteristicsof the land
surrounding Greenwood and Grand
Forks. Iu fact in most places it would
be easy to drive u team across country.
Ranchers are plentiful and prosperous, cattle and fruit being the most remunerative objects.
There is not much game lobe seen in
Boundary and the fishing, save at,
certain times in tho Kettle liver, is
poor. In fact Mr. Beer was informed
that rnttlo suakoH and turtle doves
wero about thn only   species of  game
left.
Mr. Beer's visit was partly for
pleasure and partly for prolit. It is
gratifying to know that both of thoso
objects   woro   successfully   realised.

Will Consider the Subjects.
Tbe regular monthly general meeting of the South Kootenay Board of
Trade will bo held in tho Board rooms
on Monday at 8 p. m.
The council of thu Board have again
gone into the questions to bo submitted
to tho joint meeting at Bosslaud and
have dooided to again bring the following questions bofore the Board
for approval.
Pirst���The encouragement of tbe silver-lead industry by the imposition of
increased duties upon load products
imported into Canada.
Seooud���The question of pig lead
manufactured in Canada but refined in
the United States being re-admitted
into Canada freo of duty.
Third���The desirability of dividing
the constituency represented hy Mr.
Hostook so ns to give separate representation to the Kootenay and Boundary d?8triotg,
Fourth���The consideration of the
eight hour law and its effect upon the
mining industry.
Ah it is very important that this
matter should bo dealt with without
further delay every member of Ih i
Board is urged to he present and to
state his views.
New York, July 8.-The Journal's
Washington correspondent says:
"The following nro Iho British-Canadian proposals which have boon rejected1
by the stnto department.
Pirst���The cession of Pyramid Harbor at tbe head of tho Lynn Canal.
Second���The cessioj of any other port
o i the Lynn Canal.
Third���Tho cession of a strip of territory which would givo access to tidal
waters.
Fourth���A froe right of way across
Alaska to any United States port.
Fifth���The variation of Hay's provisional boundary lino so as to include
Klunkwan, un Indian village at the
head of canoo navigation leading into the Lynn Canal.
Sixth���Tho inclusion of the Porcupine, district with a new approach to
navigation on the British side of tho
provisional boundary line.
Soventli���Tho proposition to arbitrate
tho provisional line, precedent to the
formulation of a modus vivendi pending a permanent settlement of the question.
This statement was made bv some of
the officials of the state department describing the state of negotiations on
tho Alaskan boundary.
"The ueogtiatons have beon indefinitely postponed,or to rut it otherwise
they have practically been declared
off." Tlusa developments leave the
boundary line dispute where it was
when tbo Joint High Commission adjourned on February 18, with the situation not improved.
Sir Julian Panncefnto and Lord Sal
isbury went so far as to a roo that a
provisional boundary line, to be followed by i. modus vivendi was tho iirst
step. England pn Dosed several lines,
which weio objected to and eventually
Secretary Hay delineated the territory
jvifh a liuo which was apparently
agreeable to England, Canada then
suddenly was referred to as tho really
important factor and mado propositions at various times which wero sustained by England. England's last
diplomatic resort,which developed yosterday, is the astounding suggestion
that, the provisional line should be
submitted to arbitration. This was
promptly rejected bv this government.
The United States is not going to submit tho boundary line to arbitration
and bus officially said so. The state
department officials here regard the
proposnl to arbitrate tho provisional
lino as "illy another scheme lor delay
p.-ofltalli to this country and aMpable
of being made advantageous to Canada. The state department makes this
point. It is a matter which two sen
siblo and gieat governments could
agree upon without the intervention of
any other nation. The last refusal to
accept our provisional lines, precedent
to tho formulation of a modus vivendi
is regarded ns distinctly disingenuous
and intended to scuro through tho favor of an arbitrator, probably, a European monarch, or a South American
despot, nn advantage to bo utilised
wheu the temporary line is arbitrated,
aH a basis for some prepostrous proposal.

New York, July 8.��� Tho World today says: William MoKeuzie of Toronto, one of the best known railway
men in Canada, camo to this city yesterday, it was said, to soe Mrs. MoKeuzie off on the Etruria. It was rumored that Mr. McKenzie was in consultation with financiers for the pur-
poso of interesting them iu his scheme
for making Montreal the principal port
for exportation of western grain. Mr.
McKenzie contemplates nothing less
than connecting Hudson's Bay with
the grain region by rail, and ship
ping to Eurof can markets by un all
water route. A government commission, it was said, had reported tho
scheme might possibly succeed in spito
of the dangers of polar navigation, Mr.
MaoKenzie left la-it night for Oanada,
The investigation conducted by the
New York state commerce commission
to ascettain facts concerning the decline of exportation from the port of
New York was continued yesterday.
John P. TrnesdeH testified that In his
opinion Now York would not regain
her old place in commerce until the
Erie caual had been put in proper
shape.
Loudon, July 8.��� Although a few
big dances aro still in sight the London soason is already waning. People
aro flitting to the country muoh earlier
than vsual. Next week will be given
over to Newmarket where are numerous house parties for the second July
mooting. During the following week
the season winds up with the Duchess
of Portland's ball.
There are still several fashionable weddings to come off, the
most notable being that of the
Eail of Shaftsburgy and Lady Oou-
stunce Grosvenor, who will haye 16
bridesmaids, while many persons look
forward with great interest to the
reception heing given by the Duke and
Duchess Sutherland at Strafford House,
on July 2(i to members of tha Anglo-
American league, and friends, at
wnich Mr. Joseph H. Choate, United
States ambassador and Mrs. Choate,
and many prominent Americans will
be present.
A representative of the Associated PreNS has just interviewed the
Countess Aberdeen and others regard-
ingftbe practical results likely to ao-
erne from the International Council of
Women. Lady Aberdeen, wno is an
enthusiastic admirer of tne American
and Canadian delegates, said: "Every
one of them was a skilled expert and
most of them were trained speakers
whom congress delighted to hear,
which cannot bo said regarding any of
the other speakers. Americans as a
rule wore better informed, more decided in opinion and further advanced
ou leading topics than any other delegates. Thoy fairly outstripped English
women, who, however, are better informed than the continental delegates
iu general knowledge ot subjects pertaining to women. Regarding results
a grand consummation has been
reached of welding together a cosmopolitan body of thoughtful women,
prepared to educate their fellow women ; 25 years hence the leaven of today will have leavened Ihe world, and
the irresistable force of public opinion will have raised woman to their
proper sohere.
In spite of counter attractions in tbo
hot voather the theatres fared well
this week. "An American Citizen" is
doing so well at the Duke of YoTk's
theatre that Nat Goodwin will prolong
its run.
As a souvenir of the performance at
Windsor' July 4, when Gran's company presontod the opera of "II Pag
liaci," before a large gathering of Royalty, the Queen has presented Mr.
Maurice Grau with a handsome silver
inkstand with the Royal Monogram,
and Miss Susi.nno Adams with a gold
bracelet with tho Queen's initials on
it.
There are crowds of Americans now
iu London. So great is the rush that
the sieamship companies admit tbeir
inability to cope wilh it. All the
Transatlantic Companies havo ordered
from one to four new ships, but it is
impossible tor many of those to be
ready uuitl 11)00. Tbe American and
North German lines are pushing work
on their new vessels to the utmost possibility hut they hardly hope to have
tlituu ready for the Paris exhibition.
Tho Atlantic Transport Company has
four vessels, averaging 12,000 tons
end-, in course of construction. They
will be i.00 foot long. The new Leland
Liner Winifredian for the Boston
tra e made her trial trip today.
Eve i the cargo boats are constantly increasing thoir passseuger acommoda-
tious with tho view of meeting the
growing demand for passages. Tho
Winifredian will acoommodate 140
salnnn passengers.
The scenes p.t the Hotel Cecil, Metro-
pole and the other hotels on the arrival
here of the passengers from tbe Ma*
jestio and St. Paul at midnight Wednesday was tho most exoiting of the
season. An idea of the scene may bo
gained from tho fact that De Wolf
Hopper, who with his comic opera
oompany, has just arrived, was unable to enter the Hotel Cecil and was
oonpolled at 2 o'clook in the morning
to seek temporary quarters elsewhere
while batches of chorus girls were still
riding about in cabs at three in the
morning in hopeless  quest for shelter.
Although they had only landed on
Tuesday, the Canadian Riflemen were

London, July H.���A Parliamentary
return issued iu regard to thn number
of Ohuroh of England churches that
coutaiu confessional boxes seem8 to
show tho accusation of tho anti-ritu-
alistH in regard to this specific alleged lawlessness totally groundless,as
all tho dioceses oxcept li.-u say not ouo

Southwell. At tho samo time thero
are scores of churohos, especially in
London, whero confessions aro hoard

in defined positions in the nave in order to avoid possiblo scandals through
hearing confession iu the vostry or

SCORED   A SUCCESS.
The Lyceum Co. Again Please a Large
Nelson Audienoe.
The Lyceum Company presented two
scenes from Hamlet and"Jaue" to a
largo and appreciative audience composed of our best people.
The programme was quite up to the
high standard of Iho Lyceum Company's past efforts, and the applause
was generous and plentiful and curtain
calls the  order of tho evening.
Mr. D'Oize is a man who is rapidly
making a name for himself. His work
ill Hamlet, is artistic and finished.
One would like to see him play it in
its entirety.
The comedy of "Jane" went well
from start to finish. Every performer did his bottt and a better
pleased audience has not been seen
heie for a   long time.
We understand there will be a final
appenrnace on Thursday of this week
when the company will preseut
"Othollo" with many changes and improvements in the cast. "Othello"
was a success here before and will
hear repeating. logo will be played
by Mr.D'Oize, Othello by Mr. Clifford,

REVEALS  HANDSOME feURPLUS
Financial Statement   of the Dominion
Shows an Increase.
Ottawa, July 8.���The statement of
the finances of tie Dominion of Can-
ada for the year ending June 10 lust
which has been prepared by (ho finance
department shows an extraordinary
large increase in the rovouue of the
country. Last year was a rocord
breaker. This year outsrhps it by an
increase of nearly $0,000,000. The
difference between the expoudiuro
aud the revenue shows the lutter to
bo nearly $11,000,000 in excess of the
outlay. The revenue was $14,(!!)��, 1 If,
aud the expenditure $88,688,592. Th
levenue for 1898 was 188,800,000, Hid
there was about $8,000,000 added to the
publio debt, which now amountB to
{200,000,000. Whon all the outstanding accounts for tbe last fiscal ytar
sent in are settled, tbere will remain a
handsome surplus of about |6,000,000,
whicii will be the first Canada has had
for somo yeBrs if 1808 is acceptud.

The Columbia's Test With
the Defender.
SHAMROCK   AT   COWES
Yachting Opinion on the  Merits  of the
fchamrockProbable Trials With
the   Defenderi
Southampton, July 8.���The yacht
Shamrock has unexpectedly left her
moorings at 11:80 this morning and
sailed down Southampton Water on a
canvas stretching trip. Tho Iverna
also started apparently with the inten-
tion of testing her speed against tho
Shamrock. The Meteor arrived and is
being docked and cleaned. It is expected that she will be ready to sail
next week, though her captain still
declares he bas not yet receivod orders
to sail the yaoht against the Shamrock.
The Emperor William is expected to
insjiect the Shamrock before she sails
for the United states. There is much
interest in yachting oircles here at the
prospect of speedily getting somu inkling of the Shamrock's qualities.
Later.���The Shamrock had a splendid run from Hurst Castle and it is
now believed she will probably remain
off Cowes where she now is, for thn
night. Yachtsmen here declare sh��
fulfilled every promise today and gave
evidenoe of being the best equipped
cup ohallenger ever seen in these watj
New York, July 8.���The big sloop
yachts Columbia and Defender, met in
a battle royal today that was satisfactory to all concerned, in a strong
and fairly stoady breeze and smooth
water. They sailed over a oonrse of
about 20 miles and in covering tbat
distance, the Columiba fairly and
squarely outsailed the Defender by
thre.i minutes, 18 seconds actual time.
If the Columbia, after measurement,
is found to have to allow the Defender
two minutes, sho will have beaten her
by one minute aud 18 seconds. Tbat
means that she can beat her now over
a full !)0 mile course, tbe experts say,
by at least two minutes corrected
time, and th::t when she is tuned up
say by the September races, she will
beat her by five minutes which is all
that is required of her. Today's race
was as fine a smooth water test as the
yachts expect to get. On the first leg
of the course, a stretoh of about four
miles with a beam wind, the Defender
gained about two seconds. On the Bee-
ond leg of six miles in which tbe work;
was slightly to windward the Columbia gained a minute and S8 seconds.
On the third leg, a three mile run before the wind, with spinnakers set,
the Dofender gained six seconds. On
the first tack around the Columbia
gained oue minute 11 seconds. In the
close hauled work on tho second leg
tho Columbia gained only 80 seoonds
and iu the run to the finish tbe Defender gaiuod 4 seconds. Tbe unfortunate part of today's race waa thejtoct
that both of tho yachts sailedthe
wrong course. It was in faot the
feature of the day and the strange action of thoso iu charge of tbe yaohts
kept every one guessing aB to tbe ultimate result. The regatta committee,
howevor.say that the ovent will be considered a raco and Commodore Postley
will probably award the cup to the Co*
lumbiu.
FROM    THE    TRANSVAAL.
Confirmation of tho   News  of an Approaching  Settlement.
London, July ��.���Tho news of the
Volksraad's reported action on July 0,
iu deciding to grant the franohise immediately to all settlers in the Transvaal from 1800 and to other classes of
residents within seven years, (the naturalization clauses to he optional,)
which is confirmed from several sources
appears to offer a fair basis for a
friendly settlemont. It was generally
expoctod when Hofmeyer, the Afrikander leader, and President Steyn o*
the Orange Free State, oonjointiy exerted pressure cpon President Kruger,
the latter would be obliged to concede
what they demanded, as the price of
Dutch unity in South Africa. In the
meanwhile, Great Britain is keeping
up a clatter of arms for the double pur-
poso of quieting British demands for
activity and hastening the Boers.
Colonel Frank ll. Rhodes Im
joined his ' brother Cecil in

A GOOD RIDDANCE.
There is not only a crisis; but as is
invariable and inevitable whenever
Mr. Martin's will is thwarted, there
is much that is unpleasant aud discreditable as well. He trapped the
Premier into writing a letter, giving
tbe reasons for demanding his resignation, and immediately wrote a long
reply intended for the couutry. Without Mr. Semliu's knowledge or consent, he gave the correspondence to
tbe newspapers. Only a person of
coarse and tricky disposition would be
guilty of such a proceeding. It oan
be said that, if his conduct, since becoming a Minister, has put him in the
wrong, his letter leaves him there.
Mr. Martin fails to defend his own position, or to perceptibly affect that
taken by the Premier.
Whatever   else   may   happen,
Martin   will  be   forced    out   of
Government.      He     may    drag
entire   Cabinet  down witb   bim,
he   cannot   save   himself.    It   is
fortunate  tbat  His   Honor  is  absen
from the Capital at   this critical time
but when he   returus  he   will find   it
his duty   to   insist   on   Mr.   Martin's
compliance with the will of the Prem
ier.    If they were dealing with a man
of refined   feeling, this  appearance of
constitutional coeroion would be avoided.    Where  Mr. Martin is  concerned,
however, new   laws   aud rules of conduct are necessary.    Shonld His Honor
for any reaBon   decline to support  his
First Minister, Mr. Semlin   will have
no alternative  but tc hand in his own
and Im colleagues' resignations.    This
would mean a dissolution   and general
election, for,   to a new Premier, these
would   be   absolutely    necessary    for
clearing tbe air, a process that  would
he very much   required under the new
oironmstanoes.
At tbis  stago  Mr.   Martin's  disappearance is the only event that cau   be
reokoned upon with certainty; the rest
Is in doubt, and we get  no light from
the Coast.    Mr. Bemlin   may patch up
with a new Attorney-General,   and go
on until  next session   or   longer.    Or
tbere may be anew shuffle all round,
Mr. Semlin  dropping  out   and   some
other person being aocepted as leader of
a   Governemnt    that    will oommend
itself to the better elements of the two
present factions.    Whatever is evolved
out ot the  existing  chaos  will   bo an
improvement on   the   situation of  the
past few months.   Not  only will   the
Government he bettor because   of   Mr.
Martin's    suppression,     but    British
Columbian politics will be cleaner and
healthier when purged of  his  baneful
influence.    For this the   country  will
be grateful, while hoping there may be
other changes that will put the   Province on better terms witb itsolf and restore confidence in its ability to govern
itself respectably and with somo degree
of wisdom.
Uhm     Mr.    Kobertson,   Provincial
Mineralogist, was  in Nelson,  arranging with   tho   Hoard of T-nde for  the
selection of mineral samples   for exhibition at Paris, it   was laid down as a
rule that thu specimens should not exceed a cub,- of   eight   inches.    He   has
since  hud   oommunioatijn   with   Dr.
Dawson,    of   tlio   Geological   Survey,
who says that the rule wi 11 be relaxed
and th��t larger samples will be received if good.    We understand   this   concession has been made  at   tho   request
cf tlie Board here, who desire that information   of it be   communicated   to
mine   owners   aud   managers,   in the
hope   that   a choice selection of  largo
samples will   be   obtained in this and
the Goat  River  districts.    The  agent
of  the   Board,   Mr.    Chadbourn,   has
been advised   that the  limit has  been
raised, to apply, however, ouly to producing mines, the origiual limit being
retaiuod   in tho cam of  prospects.    If
thoso in charge oi mines will   heartily
co-operate with   Mr. Chadbourr, there
will be a creditabe representation from
this section of the Province.

"There   is not   a Tory   paper in the
Dominion of Canada, " says The Victoria Times, "hardy   enough to maintain that   Sir Charles   Hibbeit did not
fail, utterly,   miserably, to make good
his   slanderous   charges."     This is a
stupid   remark   to  mako, although   a
common oue just now in the Ministerial Presj.    Sir Charles Hibbcrt Tupper
did uot    expect, nor   did he attempt,
" to rnake gool"   his  charges  on   tho
floor of the House.    What   be  did   do
was to make the charges   aud ask for a
lommissiou   to investigate.    He   went
further,   however,   and pledged   himself to  withdraw   from   Parliament if
he failed   to   establish   them.    If  tbe
Government  were  confident  of   their
innocence   and the   innocence of their
employees, they could   havo rid themselves   cf  a   dangerous   opponent  by
the very simple expedient of   granting
the cotnimssion; but this thev refused.
The discredited  party   in    the case is
not Sir  Charles   Hibbert, but the Dominion   Government,   and    as   time
passes the popular   mind will   become
more and more conscious of tbe fact.

�������������������������������������� ����������������������������������������
Yruir. July >>.���Over on 16 Mile
creek, Messrs. Heuuessy Bros , are
working their properties Lucky Strike
und Wisconsin. These clninis were
located during the year 1894, and the
manner in which they came to be located forms a decidedly interesting
sketch. During tbe spring of 1894
Hennessy and bis partner were prospecting over in tbe 3oat River country which is on the east slope of Kootenny Lake,and nearly opposite to Midge
or," as it is better known, 16 Mile
creek. While there looking for mineral
float a terriflie thunderstorm arose,
anri while in shelter under a rocky
Muff and looking westward across
Kootenay lake they noticed that tbe
lignhting struck at a certain point on
the mountains of Midge creek and that
immediately this occurred a fire ignited ; a second time; the lightning
struck only it seemed to the observers,
who were now thoroughly interested,
that it was some few feet distant from
the first place struck. This happened a
third time; in each instances a fire was
ignited which burned very fiercely.
The deductions whicii these old prospectors drew from this remarkable
phenomena was that the mountain was
a mass of mineral carrying consider
able iron, and that was the reason tbe
lightning had so repeatedly struck the
same point. They determined that as
soon as they had completed their trip
in the section in which they were then
in, tbat they would go on a prospecting trip to the mountains where they
bad first seen the strange pyrotechnic
display. Reaching Kaslo they hired a
boat and rowed down the lake witb
their outfit and from the bearing
which they had taken while across the
lake they proceeded to the point which
marked their destination ; after a couple
of days hard toil worikpg through the
underbrush, wbich is very thick in that
part, they came upon the mountain
and immediately found what thev were
looking for. The find cousisted of a
very large ledge composed of red oxide
of iron, between a contact, upou this
they made their first locations. Today
they bave some |3,000 iu work done,
Tbe property is crown granted, and
the mineral is a fine grained steel galena which averages well. The prop
erty will ship one as soon as a road
can be built from tbe Lake to the property. All supplies are now taken in
from Ymir, but with the completion
of the road Kootenay lake will be the
natural  outlet.
H. L. .Taokson has returned from
doing assessment work on the Nelly
mineral claim which is situated ou
tbo south fork of Wild Horse creek
about seven miles from Ymir. Tbe
property is between granite and lime
and the lead matter is some three leet
in width, witb a pay streak of some
IS inches running through it which
will run |5 in gold and two per cent,
copper. The property is only a prospect, but with work will no doubt
turn out well. The appearance of the
oru is very similar to that of tbe Rossland camp. Finlay McLeod bas also
returned from working on the (iood
Hope mineral claim. Tbis is another
Wild Horse creek property and has a
promising future.
Ymir packers are very busy taking
supplies out to the prospectors and the
outfits of new men who are coming
in to do their yearly assessment. It is
estimated that within a radios of SO
miles of Ymir there are 400 men
<lnin^ assessment. This speaks well
for the camp. Ymir cannct but be
a heavy producer within a short time,
as the majority of work already done
shows up our vaBt mineral wenlth.
There are a few blanks, but very  few.

How tbe Eight Hour Law is Affeotlug
tho Kaslo District.
The Kootenaian bus gone to some
trouble in compiling some interesting
ligures whicii Tbe Miner reproduces,
together with the Kooteuuian's re-
marks on them:
Tbe oro shipments during the month
ot June have been exceptionally large.
This is aooounted for by the enforcement of the eigtt hour law which
resulted in nearly all the mines olos
iug down ou June 1, and tbe remaining few on tbe 11th. Tho shipments
made were only the clearings of the
ore left iu the ore houses and on (he
dumps, there being no ore mined.
For tho two weeks ending 80th the
Slocan Star was tbe onlv shipper and
that a./ionnted to only 160,000 pounds.
Although tho wot season would have
a tendency to decrease the amount
shipped, the output would hnve ureally
exceeded that given below had the
miues continued to work as in previous
years.
However, it is qnite probable that
before the month of July is out some
of the properties will Le awta snipping us OOntraotl have been lot on
some properties although there is no
telling when the labor trouble will
end.
lielow we print a list of tho mines

PREJUDICE
Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown
into the sewer, and a woman's time and labor gone
with it. If you weren't so prejudiced you could have
just as good success with your Bread as your neighbor.
We advise : Throw prejudice aside, and lor your next
Baking try a sack of
3   STAR   FLOUR.
Thousands are using it with success ; why not you? If it
doesn't suit you, you don't have to pay for it.
