One of the most surprising and interesting developments of the past week
haa been the find ot rich gold quarts cm
Boulder creek, which promises to be
richer than anything heretofore found
in the district, says the Fort Steele
Prospector. The quarts is ot surprising richness, and small samples when
panned give large returns in .fold.
The location of the new discovery is
on the west side of Boulder creek, about
two and one-halt miles from Wild
Horse, and not over seven miles from
Fort Steele. The ledge is visible
for fcbout 400 feet ou tho surface,
and the ore chute has been followed for
a distance of 150 feet.
Some two weeks ago it was reported
that a large and rich strike of silver-
lead ore had occurred on the Sullivan
groop, and that the ledge was some 80
feet in width.   Mr. E. C. Smith, man
ager of the mine,  returned to Fort
Steele Monday, and during an intrr
view with a Prospector reporter, said
that the lead  was much wider, probably 109 feet at the least, that a horse
was encountered which at thnt timewas
supposed to be a wall, but (later explor
ationshave demonstrated that the ledjre
proper must be about 10U feet in width.
Tne Sullivan group of mines consists
of the following claims, Hamlet, Shy
lock and Hope, and were discovered hv
Messrs. Smith, Clever, Burchett and
Sullivan, in 189*2, who sold the property to Spokane parties. The new
companv is known aa the Sullivan
Group Mining Co . F. Mogan is pre-ii-
dent. Chas Wolf, treasurer, and F. L
William, secretary. On the directory
board are Col. Peyton. Col. Kedpath.
Major Armstrong, "Col. Turner, Frank
Graves, Judge Blake, F. Post, and V.
C. Smith. The Sullivan is stocked for
t2,VJ0,ou) and is controlled almost
wholly hy Spokane parties. Mr. E C
Smith retaining a 28th interest, in fact
we may sav that the Sullivan group is
owned aud controlled by the principal
stockholders of the famous Le Roi mine

Hewitt Bontock, M.P. for Kootenav-
Yale-Cariboo, isa/ainin Kootenay Mr.
Bontock has been in Trail for the past
few days,gleaning information concerning the local smelting industry, and
especially as regards lead reduction,
with a view to using the dnta tltn* ob
tained at the next session of |��rliauu<nt.
To the Kossland Miner, Mr. Boatoek
could nor say posiiiv.-lv when parliament would next assetubla, hut he an
tU-ipalen that the sessiou will In- earlier
than usual, probably commencing in
January. Mr. Bostovk was not prepared to say what would be the moat Important legislation introduced at the
hex*', session, but he expect* that considerable attention would Im> paid
to redistribution. Hi* referred to n
desire among prominent Liberals to reorganise the representation in the
House of Commons on a fairer basis
than was provided under Conservative
rule. He expects to see many poeket
boroughs that are considered Conservative strongholds wiped out. and greater
representation given to districts that
have increased largely in iKipulatinu in
recent years.   In this connection he ex-
poets that the Kootenay-Yale-Cariboo
district will receive favorable consideration He favored the contention that
the Kootenays should be organised ana
separate constituency, and this he will
do his utmost to secure at the earliest
possible moment, He aaid the division
of the district meets with the approval
of the Ottawa administration.
Speaking of the organiaing of the
Liberal partv in British Columbia Mr.
Bostoek admitted that a move was on
foot to thoroughly marshal the forces of
the partv for tne next campaign, iu
Provincial as well as Dominion politic*,
but ns to the details of the scheme he
was not prepared to speak at present.
As 10 Dominion party lines in Provincial |>olities, Mr Bostm*k expressed tbe
belief rhitt the next e'ections would be
fought out ou that basis
Plans   All   Knoohod   Ont.
The Spokesman-Review says the St.
Keverne bonding scheme is oil The
stockholders of tbe company were almost unanimous in favoring tbe pro-
po-ed plan wherehv John A Finett**WA*
to take a bond for t&),0iiu on the property and to admit such of the sUH-khold-
ersas desired to tierome interested with
him in the boskd iu proportion to their
holdings of stock The stm*kholders'
meeting wan held last week in Sp��kane
with >.<0,<aarof ihe WJhflto issued shares
of the com'Mtnv's stock represented Ol
these. Jr2��AOJJ were known to favor the
proposed deal. Nine* the meeting the
secretary hat received proxies tor .**>,���
oii> more share* also favoring the bond.
It was the small minorily uotrepreoxott
ed who upset the plan They were
eastern stockholders Neurit everv
share held in Spokane was reprenenfed
and all favored It
When the meeting convened Mr
Finch staled to the stockholders that he
had received several tellers and telegrams from small eastern stockholders
denouncing the plan as a high handed
proceeding aud had also noted an ad
vers** criticism in tbe Toronto Mail.
While he believed the plan W�� be a good
thing for the stockholders, large snd
small, he said he did not care to under
take the project if he was to be thus
bitterly denounced bv the people whom
he sought to help So fn spite of Ihe
fact that there was a great majority of
the stock present and ready to approve
the bond Mr Finch decline*! to enter
into the arrangement.

A Few Useful Hints on the Care of the
Organs of Sight.
Dr. L. W. Fox. professor of ophthalmology, Medico-Cbirurgical college, Philadelphia, formulates the following rules
for the care of the eyes:
First���Avoid sudden changea from
dark to brilliant light.
Second���Avoid the use of stimulants
and all drugs which affect the nervous
Third���Avoid reading when lying
down, or when mentally and physically
Fourth���When the eyes feel tired rest
them by looking at objects at a long distance.
Fifth���Pay special attention to the
hygiene of the body, for that which tends
to promote the general health acta beneficially upon the eyes.
Sixth���Up to 40 years of age, bathe
the eyes twice daily in cold water.
The Le lloi one day last week eclipsed all records ever made in the camp in
the way cf ore production During the
24 hours ending at fi o'clock at night,
the mine produced 19 cars of ore,
averaging 234 tons to the car, which j late at night,
made the total output barely less than
450 ton*. Of this. 200 tons came from
the dump, and the rest, about 250 tons,
from the underground workings of the
mine There are now 9Bt men at work
in the property, and they are operating
Seventh���After 50 bathe the eyes
morning and evening with water so hot
that you wonder how yon stand it; follow this with cold water, that will make
them glow with warmth.
Eighth���Old persons should avoid
reading much by artificial light, be
guarded as to diet*, and avoid sitting up
Ninth���Do not depend on your own
judgement in selecting spectacles.
Tenth��� Do not give up in despair when
you are informed that a cataract is developing;   remember in these days of

Now that the railroads are beginning
to advertise their rates to the Spokane

talk more about going and are making
their plans. The rate of two cents a

ment over the rate of five cents. The
difference between $4 for the round trip,

The Vancouver Province in commenting upon the disastrous fire at
New Westminster, said some things
editorially that were somewhat premature and entirely out of place. It
spoke of New Westminster as a city
of yesterday, and insinuated that its
citizens would not be inclined to rebuild, but would gladly take their insurance money and remove to Vancouver or some other more promising
city. All of this might be very true
ot many of the unfortunate sufferers,
but it is one of those truths that can
never be told without injuring the
tender chords ot humanity's heart,
and bringing curses upon the bead of
the well-meaning but hasty writer.
As a result of its untimely remarks
The Province is being shamelessly
assailed by its jealous contemporaries
and its editor called all manner of bad
things. This is the way he takes his
"A correspondent of the World
writes to that newspaper accusing the
editor of The Province of being a
"worm" and "a vacuous cur" and
various other unpleasant things, and
if it would make anybody feel any
better or happier the editor of The
Province will cheerfully admit that
he is tbe wormiest kind of a worm
and the most vacuous sort of a vacuous cur on earth. It does, however,
seem a pity that public questions and
matters cannot be discussed wi'hout
indulging in silly personalities of this
discription. Children doing it are
forgiven because of their youth, hut
human beings should surely look for
something better from themselves
when they attain maturity."
While tbe editor of The Province
"takes his medicine like a little man"
he does not miss the opportunity to
administer a just rebuke to that class
of individuals who seem to think that
the calling of a man a cur makes him
one. Every editor has been thus
branded at some stage of the game,
but most of them have managed some
how to survive, and it is not likelv
that the Province man will suffer the
agonies of hell because of It. A fool
can blaspheme his God, but it is a
wise man that makes and holds his
peace. -	
The London Spectator advocates a
plan which would have made the
statesmen ruling English affairs 24
years ago open their eyes with
amazement. It proposes the a broga -
tion Of the Clavt*��nTwlwer treaty and
Jn Its piece one whereby the two na
tlons of England and Amuriea guarantee for each other the. control of the
Suez  and    the    Nicaragua  canals
against al! comers. This would constitute a paet of invincible strength,
and the official discussion would
make the rest of the world squirm.
Stranger things have happened.
There is a custom in Japan that Is
ahead of anything we have in
Sandon. When a dog barks at night
there the owner is arrested and sen
tenced to work a year for the neighbors that were disturbed. The dog
gets off easier, being killed. As we
do not own a dog and have neighbor
ly neighbors, we are in favor of such
a law being put in ioroe right now
and here.       	
Down in Mexico they nave a
strange way of doing things. 1 he
farmers use oxen of one color In the
morning, and another color in the
afternoon. They do not know why,
but they know it must be right because their forefathers did it* We
can gather from this some idea of
where tbe custom tor morning and
afternoon gowns came from.
The Boasland Miner is endeavoring
to attach to that city's name the appendage 'The Golden City." No
harm in this and it looks well in print
so why not?	
An interesting controversy baa been
going on in Kaalo between the Root-
enain on one hand and  the   News,
supported   by   the   several    church
divines, on the other.   It was opened
by the Kootenaian taking occasion to
rebuke the local pulpit for its narrow
interpretation of God and Chbtiauity.
"Instead of  replying to  our argu
ments," says the Kootenaian, "the advocates of  ceremonial  worship  have
accused un through their organ, the
British Columbia News, of materialism.
Heresy haa been defined as 'the creed
of your opponent,' and  lest tbe pious
readers of the Kootenaian should get a
false notion of our religious platform,
we hereby present our creed. To begin
with, we believe.in God, but we deny
that He vacates the rest of the universe
on Sunday to go to church.   We do not
contend,  however,   that every  rampant  excursionist who  takes to the
woods and stream! ou Sunday is more
devout and nearer to the Great .Spirit
than the loud-voiced worship|ier at the
Mercy Seat.   For just as the Pharisee
may go to the sanctuary aud keep bis
heart at variance with the suasions ot
the Spirit, so tbe ruthless disturber of
Nature's sanctities can laconic au outdoor prot inatiou on the Sabbath or anv
other day.   The excursionist does not
necessarily find God at  Mirror lake or
Powdercreek.   It is in his own Mug
I hat man first gats behind the veil of
"matter" and finds a conscieus Spirit
There may   be  consciousness  in  tbt*
mountain and in the star and tho forest*
aud tlie wind may be vocal with eternal
messages, but man, until   he has first
found (iod   in  his own heart, cannot
commune with other manifestations of
God:   'Not  the  dear-sighted but the
pure-minded shall see God in nature.'
Once having found that he has a spirit,
man unconsciously is influenced by the
Sublime fact that Spirit is universal,
and he thus becomes attuned to the
harmonies about him    All  nature is
transfigured.   In the ��� iritv of his heart
he has seen God, and not as a visitant
but  an a  natural  expression of the
.human spirit   Man has not known that
what he found irtbls heart was the pre*-
, mice of the Infinite.   He has felt inspir
ed he knew not how. and with the light
ot the Spirit to illumine his way he has
looked, and lo! God was everywhere.
The song of birds waa divine, and the
whispers of the forest revealed infinite
secrets and the music of the spheres
waa no longer a legend.
"Thus man has found God in nature.
It is not the act of a dependent finding

Burns drilled 30| inches.
In the hose reel race Rossland won
the wet test in 29 4/5, with Trail
second, Kaslo third and Nelson
fourth. All teams ran in harness
and a racing' cart was used. One of
the Nelson team fell and was hurt
but not seriously injured. The time
beats the Pacific Coast record.
Nelson won the hub and hub race
in good style; Rossland second,
Kaslo third. The failure of Kaslo to
take any money waa a big surprise
party. *
Option Extended.
The Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate have obtained an extension of
their option on the Iron Mask property. The option consists of the right
of taking up D. C. Corbin's interest,
which amounts to 290,000 shares of a
capital of 1501003 shares at II per
share. This, if exercised, will give
the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate
the controlling interest. Development work is being pushed on rapidly in the mine.
