j ed surgeon who has perfected a method of incising
the skin without leaving a visible scar. His success
is mainly attributable to his skill and experience but
his method is based on the practice of cutting the
skin slantwise instead of at right angles to the surface. He uses hollow ground scalpels made after
his own designs. Some times massage forms part of
the healing treatment. It is said that old scars from
operations can be removed by this method which it is
declared is one of the most important advances made
in surgery in recent years.

Report   on   Geological   Survey   of   British Columbia. Yukon and other
Parts of  Dominion.
The annual reports of the geological
survey of Canada show on every page
a practical knowledge of the country
visited intended to promote the discovery and development of the mineral
Wealth of the Dominion. The advantage of showing on the map-sheets
Of the survey, year by year, both the
geography and the geology of large
areas which had previously been almost blank spaces on the general map
oi the country, are manifest to everyone.
Following  up  the  traditions of the
methods  of his  department in  prosecuting the  geological  survey  of Canada for the  purpose of discovery ultimately economic minerals, it appeared to the superintendent that the prospects of success in  this way in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory
would   warrant   a   considerable   extension   of   the   operations   In   these   regions.    Accordingly at his request the
minister of the interior granted $19,-'
BOO  for the prosecution of ihis  work
luring    the  ycar   1904-5   and   a    like
amount   has been   placed   in   lhe  estimates of 1905-6.
Last year a large amount of labor
was performed by the surveying parties, in the aggregate in tlie Y'ukon
and British Columbia, as Well as a
part of Alberta by Messrs. Joseph
Keele, It. (1. McConnell and his assistant, Mr. K. II. Maclaleii; by Dr. It. W.
Ells and his assistant, Mr. It. R. A.
A. Johnston; by Prof. R. W. Brock
and his assistant, Mr. W. H. Boyd.
The preliminary reports just published
are lhe first official information concerning these labors.
British Columbia, as soon as it was
favored with railway connection with
the outside world, rapidly came to the
front as the banner mining province
of the Dominion, its output amounting
now on an average to some thirty per
cent, of the total production of Canadian mines. Yet only the southern
section of the province can be said to
have been touched. When the new
transcontinental crosses the province
from lhe northern passes of the
Rockies to Victoria, what wonders may
not   lie expected?

Petroleum and Natural Gas.
The reporting superintendent of the
survey has a word to say about thai
very Interesting subject to the western
farmer and manufacturer: Petroleum
and natural fas. It. appears to be now-
pretty well ascertained that rock oil
may be looked for in unaltered sediments of any age from the Cambrian
to the Tertiary, wherever certain conditions of structure and superposition
of si rata are present. In view of the
results which are being obtained elsewhere, It is probable ihat new oilfields will be found in Canada, whose
vast exient offers such a variety of
geological conditions.
The country lying along and to the |
west of the Athabaska  river, from a
point   above  Fort   Mc.Murray  to Athabaska lake, is a  particularly  promising field, says the report.    The "tar

Rocky mountains in lhis latitude, II
might   prove  a  profitable  experiment
The first report   from  a  field  party
is that of Mr. R. G. McConnell on the
Kluane    mining    district,  which    lies
along  the  northeastern  slopes of the
St.  Ellas    Tange,  in  the   vicinity    of
Kluane lake, Yukon, lt includes creeks
such   as   Bullion   creek   and   Burwash
creek, draining the northeastern slop-s
of the range, and also creeks such as
Ruby  and  the  Fourth of July, which
traverse  and   obtain  their   auriferous
supplies from the bordering ranges on
the north.    In fact the area of coarse
gold discovery extends along the base
of the St. Elias  range for a distance
of over seventy-five miles, and has a
maximum width of about thirty miles.
At the time of Mr. McConnell's visit
this district was yet a new discovery
and  workings  were in  a   preliminary
stage, but since the  miners have obtained   considerable   success.
From the elaborate description of
the topography of the district which
is given, it appears that the valleys
are much older than the present
drainage system. They have a. width
of from two to five miles or more, are
flat bottomed and are floored with
glacial deposits. The rivers which occupy them at present flow in narrow
secondary valleys, seldom excavated
to sufficient depth to reach bed-rock.
This description, it seems, indicates a
wide fleld for lhe prospector. The
summit of Mount St. Elias consists
of dlorite and iron ore was found on
the Dezadeash river. Diabase occurs
at the canyon at Sheep creek and also
at the head of Kluane Lake.
The gold, which is of the local origin and is derived from the quartz
veins cutting the widespread Kluan.-
schists, is coarse, rough and occasionally crystalline; it is more regular in size than Klondike gold and the
grade is high, some being valued ,at
?1S an ounce. Nearly all the streams
flowing from St. Elias range, in the
district examined, carried coarse gold.
Although he found mining in its in-
iiial stage and production unsatisfactory, Mr.  McConnel says:
"The discovery of coarse gold in so
mank creeks distributed over such a
wide area is a fact of considerable
importance even in the unlikely event
of no large bodies of gravel rich
enough hy ordinary placer mining being found; portions of some of tin-
creeks, at least, are certain, sooner or
later, to he worked by more economical methods.
Then there is a galna on Bullion
creek and native copper associated
with the gold on nearly all the creeks
referred to. A quartz pebble enclosing
native copper was found on Bullion
creek, indicating a vein-origin for at
least a portion of the mineral. Copper-
pyrites occur in crushed zones on Tel-
luride creek and elsewhere. A belt of
eo],per hearing rock appears to follow the St. Elias range northeast to
tlie international boundary line and
beyond. It has only heen roughly
prospected so far, but now that access
to it has become much easier will
probably receive more attention.
The lignite-hearing beds on upper
Sheep creek, enclose several lignite
seams, one of whieh, measured over
four feet in thickness. The lignite is
of excellent quality and burns freely
in an ordinary Yukon box stove. Lignite also occurs on Kimhei'ly creek.
Celebrated Duncan Creek.
Willi the Joseph Keele we will pass
inlo the Duncan creek and Stewart
riv,r mining district; This was pros-
peel,-,I as early as 1SS7 and has since
been the scene of many romantic <-pi-
Bodes, such as generally adorn the
story  of  mining camps.
The portion of the Duncan er,'.!,
district described by Mr. Keele lies
easl of the Tintina valley and west of
ibe Rocky mountains, some sixty
miles from Dawson.
Tin- rock-bed of the gold placer diggings of the Duncan creels district is
composed of an essentially schistose
scries, consisting partly of crushed
erup-tives and partly of rocks having
a sedimentary origin. The schists derived from erupt iv,-s occupy the
greater area, extending from Nelson
ere, k al lhe south end of Mayo lake,
in a westerly direction to the Mc-
Questeen river. Their extension east
ami wesi ,,r this an-a has not been determined. They outcrop on the- Slew-
aii river, near Gordon landing and extend northward to upper Duncan
creek   and   llaggarl   creek.
Duncan creek Itself, which has given
'he besl results so far, has its source
among the highest peaks of the Gus-
lavus mountains. The mild occurs in
flattened   and   rolled   parlicles   wilhou!
quartz al the canyon, and is evldentlj
ih. tin, r portion transported from a
pay sii'eiik up stream. Tlu- assay
value is $1,58 per ounce and about $38
to the shovel pel' day was the average
.,n the canyon claims. No prop-
- -in;���: had be.-n made up to lv'.'t
to locale the pay streak on the upper
-Team. The report gives a long list
oi partial failures due entirely to want
oi sufficient equipments on the part of
miners. "Many of the miners who
failed on the creek still retain their
confidence in it," says Mr. Keele. Continuing, the gentleman says:
"The cost of placing the necessary
machinery on the ground in such a remote district would be too great an
initial expense for the individual holding only a 250 foot claim, especially
as tbe richness of the ground is an
unsetled question. A company which
could acquire from one to two miles
of the creek bottom at a reasonable
price would be working on a different
basis. Diligent prospecting might reveal benches carrying good pay both
on rim rock and in the oveiflyting
gravels, which, after the creek bottom had been worked out, could he
mined by the hydraulic method."
In short it is made clear that up to
the summer of 1904 only a small portion of the gold bearing area had of
the Y'ukon been prospected and that
claims were worked mostly in the
primitive manner and with the implements usual in remote and partly
developed placer districts,
Where Does Gold Come From?
The knowledge of flu- bed rock geology,  Mr.   Keele  confesses, is  far  too
incomplete to afford a sufficient foundation of facts in an inquiry as to the
source of the gold.   Diligent search in
this district   has so far failed to reveal free gold in the quartz or in the
country  rock,  hut many  quartz veins
and stringers   have been   discovered,
whieh, when assayed, show traces of
gold, and often as much as $7 and $S
to the ton.    Fragments of vein quartz
and scists, with particles of gold at-
, tached to them, are of frequent occurence,  showing  conclusively  that they
are of vein origin or from impregnated  zones.   ,While  prosperity  has  not
revealed any payable quartz veins, it
is by no means implied that they do
not  exist.    The  amount of  bed  rock
exposed   to   the   prospector's   view   is
very small, and only seen at intervals
in  such  places  a canyon  walls, here
and  there  on  streams or on  a  few,
ridges above timber line;  everywhere
else it is concealed beneath the forest
covering, the moss and the drift.
In time gold will not be the only
product of the Yukon. The sluice
boxes on every creek in the Duncan
district catch pebbles of hematite. Native bismuth in small rounded and
flattened nuggets is of common occurrence in the gold on Highest creek.
Zinc-blende, associated with a small
quantity of copper-pyrites, occurs at
Duncan creek, and an ore body of the
same is exposed on the canyon wall
two  feet   wide,  and  containing traces
;  Of    gOlll.
Aii important quartz ledge occurs
between the heads of two small
si reams which flow into Dublin gulch
and can be traced for a distance of;
600 feet An open cut made on the!
surface exposed the ledge for a width
of L2 feet. The extreme width is unknown. The quartz is impregnated
with arsenical pyrites. An essay of
samples taken about six feet from the
vein exposed in the open cut made by
Mr. Connor, of the geological survey,
gave gold to the value of $10 to the
.Mimrs working in the vicinity of
any of the lodes can kee], themselves
supplied wiili fresh fish. Moose caribou, bear and mountain sheep can be
relied upon for food. There is an
adequate supply of white spruce timber, some trees reaching 20 Inches iu
diameter, lilack pine and balsam fir
is also found. Under such conditions
and wiih ihe experience of the last
Eew years, it can hardly be doubted
thai tin- hidden wealth of ihe north
land will .soon be exploited on an
economic basis.
In  the  Nicola Coal  Basin.
Iiriiish Columbia, that "sea of mountains"   whieh   have  such   a   foreboding
reputation not a quarter of a century
ago, furnishes Hi,- subject of several
ini,'isi ing papers.    The first  is by  Dr.
it.   W.   Ella   who  examined   the  areas
known   as   lhe   Nicola   and   Quileheila!
coal basins, which lie to the south of
the   Canadian     Pacific   railway     and
were reached  in  1901  by a stage road
from   Kamloops   to   Nicola  lake    and
i hence   oui   lo   ibe   railway   again   at
Spence  bridge.    The eastern or Quel-
clieiia  basin in about fifty miles from
Kamloops   while   the   lower,   or   Ten
Mile creek basin, which is the western
extension  of the  Nicola basin  proper,
is    thirty-six    miles    from     Spence's
'I'be possibly productive coal areas
of lhe district are arranged roughly
by  Dr.  Mils into four groups:
1. That of the Lower Nicola or Ten
' Mile  creek   basin,  about   three  miles
i belOW   Colli lee.
2. That of lhe coal gully, containing several Beams, one of which has
1.,'ei, opened and mined for Several
:'.. The Coldwater Beam, about a
mi!,- and a half to ilie east, where one
seam is exposed in Iwo outcrops on
lhe bank of the stream at an interval,
between iho two exposures of nearly
a   fourth  of  a  mile-    These  two  are
times    known as the    Garesche-
Green area.
4. The Quilcheiia basin, which is entirely separated from the others and
distant about ten miles to the east.
The lowest or Ten Mile area has
also an otcrop on the south side, on
what is known as Lindley creek where
a thin and badly broken outcrop of J
coal is exposed on the bank at an j
elevation of about 500 feet above the i
river flat. I
Other indications of coal are to bc;
found in the neighborhood. However
Mr. Ells estimates the length of the
, main coal basin of the Nicola-Cold-
water district area, from the south i
limit on the Coldwater, in the south-
1 west direction, at about ten miles and
the greatest breadth at ahout three
miles. The western portion from the
forks of the Coldwater to the Lower
Nicola is about five miles with an extension north and south along the
creeks of ahout ten miles. The length
of the eastern or Quilchena basin is
about seven rp.l'.es from north to south
and the maximum breadth apparently
about two and a half miles.
After going irto detailed analysis of
the borings made in the district up to
the time of    his visit, Dr.  Ells    concludes;    "Getieraly speaking it may he-
said  that the  borings recently  made
in the    Nicola-Coldwater basin    have
heen of little practical  value.    From
the fact that most of these havc- failed
(to reach the underlying rock, they afford no clue as to the actual structure
or lie of the coal in this direction. In
order   to   ascertain   the   value   if   the
district  as a future coal producer, it
will   be  necessary  that  a number  of
holes be put down at carefully chosen
points, since only In this way can the
extension of thc seams found on Coal
Guily  and  on  the  Coldwater   be    determined, owing to the widespread nature of the  drift deposits.    This  will
take several years to accomplish and
could best be done by a fusion of the
interests of the sevral companies owning mining areas in the valley.
Mr,  R. A. A. Johnson, who visited
i the  Aspen Grove  copper  mining region   near   Nicola,   Prof.  R.  AY.   Brock,
. who    explored  the    district    between
Revelstoke and  Schroeder creek, and;
Dr. R. A. Daily,  who surveyed a belt
five   miles   wide   along   the   boundary
, line between   tylidway and   Kootenay
! rivers add little to our knowledge of
' the resources of the country. Although
ihe   two   first    parties  report    many
traces of minerals the lattcr says:
"The experience of the season proves
conclusively that there is no hope of
the discovery of important mineral deposits, except in the case of beds or
veins of iron ore similar to the Well
known deposits at Kitchener, on the
- Crow's Nest divison of the Canadian
Pacific railway. It is possible that such
may be found in the Kitchener quartz-
ite, where it crops out in the boundary belt." It appears that the forest
fires greatly interfered with the exploitations of these gentlemen.

These and many ol h, r points, Mr
Patriotic Citizen, you should bear in

Tlie Proposal for Canadian Control of
Atlantic Ocean Traffic.
Ti,.' ii' a,.a Standard Bubmits a
ii .position for Canadian control of
Atlantic ocean traffic through the establishment of a port city in the
vicinity of lhe Slraits of Belle Isle,
which separate Newfoundland from
'li. Labrador coast. The key of ihe
argumenl appears to !������ thai, th.- distance from land to land, say from St.
John's, Newfoundland, to Qalway, Ireland, is only about 1,650 miles, which
could he covered by steamers in about |
three days. Therefore, this paper declares, that neighborhood is the "front j
door of the continent," and if a porl
were established there everybody and
everything from Canada and the
United Stales would go to Europe hy
that route.
The proposal springs out of an active rumor Unit .lames .1. Hill is io
build a new railway on Canadian ter-
rltory from Winnipeg to the Pacific
coast, and out of fear ihat Mr. Hill
will divert the transportation of the
products of Canada's entire Northw,-s'
to American pons via Duluth. Mr.
Pill is certainly betraying very active
symptoms of an Intention to run a n.w
line through iho territory lying be
tween the Greal Northern and the
Canadian Pacific. In a reeenl letter

said: "We an,- now undertaking to
luulil up a new system, a transcontinental line through the Canadian
Northwest, which I hope will Serve
lo furl her develop your city and the
country from which its prosperity is
drawn." Ii is probably safe to assume
ihai Mr. Hill Sees a profitable traffic
l,,i a new line which will parallel his
present line as well as the Canadian
Pacific, and that he intends to build.
In that <v,se he will accomplish two re-

At 1 o'clock in the afternoon, Friday,
June 1. the civic authorities will offer ���
for sale to the highest bidder a large!
number of city lots. This, Mr. Patriotic
Citizen, Is your opportunity.    Do not
construe  this  as an   Intimation   that
you   should   arm  yourself  with   a   plethoric "roll" and proceed to exchange
ii   for    titles  to  the   lots    aforesaid.
.Much   might   be  said   for   that   view;
and certainly the roll mighl be used,
for many less promising and profitable
purposes;   but  the object  of the presenl   reminder is not just  that. Aside
from iis direct and purposed resull as
a   big transaction  in  real  etate,  the
���sale  will  do two things:     It   will  attract to town a number of people from
outside points, and it  will give rise to
more or less discussion of the posit ion,

furnishes the reason wh.-   you are here
instead   Of   elsewhere.     Are   you   prepared   to   present   it   to   the   stranger
within  the   gates   with   a   fore.,  and
clearness which may Impress him with
the convict ion thai he would do well
to come here and share the advantages
you enjoy?   Are you prepared to point
out  thai  the iu,,perty which the city
non   offers  was boughl  by ii  simply
because 11   would not  allow It, to go
under value, and had to gel  11  off tin-
books  somehow;   and  thai   ll   came n,
he  in  the  position   it   was  in  on  account  of over  speculation  during the
"boom" days, followed by a long period
of depr, Bslon in which the whole world

the matter concerns the route of ship-,

and to the seaboard for export. The
possible outlets are many and various,
but there is one feature of the situation thai should nol he overlooked.:
That is thai no onc route can handle-
all the traffic.
Many routes to Europe are already
open and more are projected. There is
much reason to believe that the Hudson bay route will some day be a fact,

Portland, Or., May 22.���As the result of a wordy war that occurred in
his household Saturday night, Prof.
Edgar A. Milner, for several years
principal of the Woodlawn school, last
night resigned his position and leaves
today for Texas. During the family
quarrel the professor was stabbed in
the back by his 17-year-old stepdaughter and given a black eye and
other facial bruises hy Arthur Williamson his 15-year-old stepson. He will he
succeeded as principal by Prof. E.J.
Newbill, whose appointment will probably  be made permanent.
Though wounded and without funds,
save the $25 that his wife had given
him, Milner announced that the disgrace that had overtaken him was too
much for hi.s reputation as a school
principal to stand, and thai the only
way left for him was to get out of
ih, country ns speedily as possible,
Upset  Cup   of  Tea.
The fight which precipitated the
eclipse of Prof. Manor's career in
Portland started directly as the result
of the overturning of a cup of tea at
the dinner table Saturday night. Prof.
Milner lived with his wife and two
stepchildren In a flat above a grocery
store at Ainsworth aud Union avenue.
He has been drinking heavily of late,
it, is said, and on Saturday it is
claimed drinks came swiftly and steadily throughout the day, until by dinnertime the professor had acquired a
quantity of the stuff that is red that
might have floated a battleship. His
nerves were consequently unsteady,
and when he attempted to raise a cup
of tea it fell, spilling the fluid on the
tablecloth and causing considerable
commotion among the members of the
household who were seated ahout him.
The act irritated the professor, who
seized a number of dishes and sent
them crashing to the floor and against
the wall. In an instant the place was
a. scene of wild confusion. His wife
remonstrated, which caused the en-
ranged man to become even more
furious. He assaulted her, according
to neighbors who witnessed the affair, and called hey vile names.

Both children rushed to the aid of

Berkeley, Cal., May 22.���An exhibition performance of the rites of the
famous pagan worship of flre practices
by the flre walkers of Tahiti, given
in Berkeley yesterday, almost ended in
a tragedy.
Two of the file walkers, Priest Pu-
hia Aphinuis and his wife, attempted
to walk with bare feet across a pit
of white-hot stones, around which
were shooting red, snarling tongues of
flames. When they were half way
across their Tahitian costumes, made
from mats of dried grass, caught fire,
and had It not been for the prompt
action of spectators both the fire
walkers would have been burned to
The woman was badly burned ahout
the head and hands and her hair was
nearly all singed from her head. Pu-
hia's clothing was burned from his
body and he suffered painful wounds.
Strange to say, the f_et of the two
victims  showed   no  evidence   of  the
walk over the blazing pit.

Court   Holds   That   Equine   Can   Have
Nervous  Prostration.
Can a horse have nervous prostration? A jury in the city court thinks
so, for it has awarded a membe? of
the Coaching Club damages of $250 in
a case involving the question whether
a valuable horse was not permanently
affected by that disease by being run
into by an automobile.
And why not? Horses certainly
have nerves���more nerves, and more
sensitive nerves, it would sometimes
Seem, than a man, or even a woman.
And as neurasthenia may be caused by
shock in the case of human beings,
there is every reason to suppose that
the same cause may induce it in
A horse suffering from nervous prostration is about as useless as, for the
time being, a human being feels himself to be who has the same disease,
and that is saying a good deal. In the
horse's case the brutal old farm motto
may apply: "Pull off his shoes and
throw him to the crows."
When a horse has beeu shocked into
nervous prostration by a fright, he
sees In everything before him the
awful object, that has caused him his
dismay. He is a monomaniac on the
subject; it may be automobiles, white
cows, loose newspapers, pros! rate animals, blue wheelbarrows, or anything
else���it is all the same. Nothing else
exists for him. His body is in continual tremor. His strength is gone,
or is exerted in spasms.
Commonly he is compelled to live
out the rest of his days in a kind of
torture. He may be put into a working
team where he cannot run away, and
thus converted into a drudge, a cart
horse. But he is of little value in such
a situation. His stamina is destroyed.
His courage is gone.
No doubt we induce horse neurasthe
nia hy breeding for "spirit" in horses.
We cultivate sensitiveness, effervescence, spring, emotional excitement in
horses, because these things lend attractiveness to the animal. It is no
wonder that the continual forcing of
these qualities results in horse neu-
The catalog of man's deliberate

oi the city clerks in the Board of
Trade rooms lasi .-veiling.    The first
1 reporl to be called for by Chairman
J, J. Johnston was given by Gavin
McGowan, the secretary. He stated
that he had visited all the merchants,
and that with hul one exception outside of the hardware merchants had
found them all favorable to closing al
1 o'clock on Wednesday afternoons.
He would not mention who the soli-
lary exception was as he had no desire to injur,.' anyone's business, and
1' might lead to a boycott on lhe part
of the clerks. Two of the merchants
had not seemed inclined to take Wednesday afternoons unless the hardware
men would come in line with the movement. The hardware nu-n Mr. McGowan explained had expressed their
Intention of keeping to Saturday as
they had at first agreed to do, as their
clerks were united in their wish to
maintain  that  day.    Gentlemen  pres-
; ent slated that the merchants who had
objected had since signified their will
ingness  io  fall  in  line  with  th,'  resl
' of the business men on the subject.
It was finally moved and seconded
that the announcement of thr half
holiday season commencing on ihe
first Wednesday in June be announced
in the local papers and that cards be
printed to he placed in tlu- Stores and
i public   places.    A.   Insley   offered   to

clerks would furnish the cardboard.
The offer was accepted with thanks
