the Last Chance line, which will
give a sloping ground of over 300
feet A contract was also given to
drift 50 feet in the same direction
from the bottom of the winze.

Mr. D. McNicholI, general passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific

Accident at Brooklyn.
Another frightful accident due to
carelessness occurred    Tuesday on
Vernon W. Smith's contract on the
Robson-Peiiticton  road    by    which
three men were hurled into eternity
in the twinkling of  an eye.   Four
men,  John  Kinnear, Oscar Anderson, Tom Lanebcau and   Dan Ryan
were working on   a  sub-contract.
Two blasts  were  being prepared,
one of 8 kegs and  the other of 20.
In loading the second, after 12 kegs
had been   put  in  the  hold became
stopped.    Lanebeau used  an  iron
spoon to clear the opening and  instantly the blast went off.   Kinnear,
Lanebeau and Anderson were hurled 700 feet down the mountain side
and died but a  few minutes after
striking.   Ryan was thrown 15 feet
and escaped  without injury.   The
remains of the victims were brought
to Brooklyn and taken in charge by
the contractors and will be properly
buried.   Tha two first men were 23
years old and the other about 35. Alt
the men were without families.   No
blame attaches to any one but Lane*
ban who was cautioned not to do the
ratal act.

two drifts run in on the ledge showing continuous ore, and both the

than heretofore.

high-priced jags at the expense of

of land to the north of the t ��wu owned by ex Mayor Manly, and also the
Ruckles addition on the east of the
town, comprising some 300 acres, as
well as 320 acres of land lying west
of the town and better known as
upper Grand Forks. There will lie
very little opposition to the enlargement of the present city limits as a
large majority of the incoming property owners arc in favor of it and
would prefer being inside of the corporation.

Her Prayer Waa Answered.
"I got op from the table at 5 o'clock
in the niarning," said the bad man,
in the New York Press, ''ami remembering it was my mother's
birthdny, sent her a despatch telling
her to draw on me at sight tor $500.
The postman brought me a letter
from her just about the time she received my message, and in it she
said the family were pretty hard up,
so I felt glad that it had occurred to
me to tell her to draw. About a
week later here comes another letter,
14 pages, thanking me for the ��500
and saying how God had answered
her prayer. Bless her dear, sweet
soul���she never knew how I sat up
all night to skin that sucker. He
was one of the toughest customers I
ever had, and I nearly had to
throw him down to get his money
away from him."
S. D. Deliakiu, formerly of the

shipping of a newspaper plant to
Porto Rico. He has secured valuable
letters of introduction fr����m the

authorities now In control of the island, and will doubtless reap a harvest when the work of Americaniz

A Gallant Charge.
The 21st Lancers along with Sir
Herbert Kitchrier in Egypt are coming in for unstinted praise in the
London press for their brilliant
charge at Omdurman. The charge
is described as a second Balaklava.
The regiment unexpectedly found
itself confronting a hidden reserve
force of 2,000 men. They did not
hesitate, though they were exposed
to a withering infantry fire, but
began to hack their way through
the enemy, who stood twei.ty deep.
They struggled through, but every,
one who tell was instantly hewen to
pieces by the fanatical dervishes.
The brunt of the fighting fell upon
No. 2 company. A corporal of this
company who arrived at the far side
of the enemy drenched with blood
and reeling from weakness, was
ordered to fall out. Waving his bent
lance he shouted, ''Never" and
called to bis squadron ; "Form up

path of journalism does lead to
wealth it certainly has not been discovered yet. Oh for a Stanley to

the wealth which so many men are
struggling for In the newspaper
line. But like the M. L. A. candidates, we arc not in this business

last Friday.

The am unit is not stated in the letter
of appreciation, but it was fifty dollars,
which has been placed in the general
fund of the baud Words of praise are
highly appreciated by the band, but
when thev are backed np in such a
substantial way, the pleasure to the

of Boundary creek, declares himself the
champion rock driller of British Columbia. A few days since he met and

The press of the rival cities on tbe
coast will   occasionally stop their
childlike prattle about tbe * Critical
political situation'' and their tiresome
personal wrangling long enough lo
say a good word for tbe great interior.
Tbe Province, in a late issue, says:
"A perusal of the Kootenay press
shows that notwithstanding the rush
to the northern gold fields, the development of tbe interior of British Col
umbia is going* steadily along on conservative lines.    Old properties are
being worked vigorously and new
properties are being opened up.   Tbe
silvery Slccan,  the   richest silver
country in tbe known world, is ship*
ping greater quantities of ore each
month and tbe construction of a railway from Kaslo to tbe head of Kootenay Lake will lead to tbe development of a section of country thought
to contain mining properties richer
and greater in every way than the
famous mines of Sandon and vicinity.
There Is nothing more gratify ing thai,
this steady progress of tbe interior in
British Columbia's affairs.   The more
tbe interior is developed, the better
will the country become known and
the more money will there be to
carry the work along while large
sums are bound to pour in from the
old country  where the banks are
overflowing with capital seeking investment   British Columbia is enjoying a wonderful present, but on-
less all signs tail, its future will be a
thousand times more wonderful still."
Had   the  coast   papers devoted
more   of    their    space    to   like
fair statements of the interior's greatness and less to the fairy-tales from
tbe frozen north when the gold craze
waa at its height, thousands of people
would have been turned this way
with money to   invest,    and  the
change would have done them good,
besides helping to build op a richer
and better country than Klondike
ever will be.
In the London B. C. Review we
find a commentary on an article appearing in the London Times that is
ot much interest as showing the feebie
conception by the majority ot London
minds of the importance and vastness
of Canada in general and British
Columbia in particular. "Now that
the people at home are aware that
there is a vast region called Canada,"
the Review says* that it comprises a
confederation of rich provinces, and,
besides being very loyal to its kindred
of the Empire,  poijsesses an alert
mind and a healthy body, tbe Dominion of Canada and its wants and aspirations, conditions and institutions,
���re receiving an increased share of
attention from the English press. The
Jubilee and the Klondike discoveries
nave quiekened this spreading inter
eat; and when tbe Times, as a few
days ago, devotes three columns of
solid matter to tracing the gradual
and romantic development of British
Columbia from Indian territory to the
present year of grace, we know thai
the  world  is seeking   information.
As the writer sententiouslv remarks,
-a certain glamour seems to hang
over every newly-developed region.
There is a sort of indefinite charm to
those who reside in such new conn
tries.    All  tbe   depresning effects
which are so prominently connected
with the overcrowded and desperately competitive conditions of life in
the older countries are unknown. To
the Colonial there it always a chance
���and that may be a golden one���
that the country in which he has cast
his lot will one day. perhaps, be peo
pled with thousands, and that what
now are obscure outlying nitons will
someday be connected by railway
systems and have townships formed
wi��hin tbem.   However, to tbe average antra veiled man, sitting perhaps
at borne in comfort, either retired
from business on a comfortable Income or still trying to attain that end,
little is known with any geopraphi-
cal exactitude of such proportiiina of
our great Empire as British Columbia.
Even the,better informed seem to
have an idea that British Colombia is
still a separHte colony, and not a part
of the Dominion of Canada.   To these
it would be well to state at once that
British Columbia constitutes one ot
several  provinces constituting   the
Dominion of Canada, the other large
ones being Ontario and Manitoba, the
North-West Territories,  besides sev-
eral smaller provinces known as New
Brunswick, Nova8cotia and Quebec.''
Concluding the Times article says:
"To the   capitalist   and   investor,
British Columbia presents one diatinet
advantage���viz, it is under the British flag, and consequently every aa
surance ia given that the laws wil*
be properly administered and every
protection given to life and property.
It is also a great advantage to the
country that it has practically been
brought   within easy  touch of the
great  commercial   centres   of the
world, since almost any portion of it,
except those ottside railroad com
munication, can be reached within a
fortnight after leaving London, the
greatest    possible   comfort    being
afforded moreover both by boat and
rail to the traveler."

In very ancient times commerce was
carried on practically by barter. There
was always a tuweunity, however, for a
common standard, and any commodity
wan said to be worth no many sheep,
oxen, etc. lit course of time it was
fouud much more convenient to express the value of most commodities
by hits of leather, on which certain
marks were made, indicating the number of beasts each piece was worth.
These stamped bits of leather were the
first coins.
The precious metals were first made
use of as currency in the form of un-
stam|*od bullion,' and values and
amounts were then determined and expressed by weight: hence the origin of
the terms |kiiind, livre, mark, etc
The original process of coining was
indeed simple A piece of metal, having a defined weight, was placed on a
die engraved with some national or re
Hgious symbol, and was struck with a
hammer until It had received the impression of the die At the present day
the device is timt engraved upon a
|ilug of forged steel, which,when finished, is hardened, and Is then called a

As between upraisir^and winiing between levels in metal mines, the former
is the cheaper method, says the Mining
and Scieutitic Press. Gravity assists iu
the removal and blasting of the ore.
Two men will upraise from four to six
feet in hard rock in a shaft in a hole 4x4
feet. The work is much easier on the
men, as they have uo ore to shovel,
while iu the wince two men with the
aid of the two roeu at the windless, will
ouly sink from two to two and one-half
feet in a shaft In fair rock. The serious
objection to overhand work is the great
dauger from falling: rock aud the liability to guard against it These upraises
or winzes serve several purposes of
ventilation, subdivision of the vata, and,
when mining operations are begun, the
upraise is timbered aud becomes a chute
for the delivery ot the ore. In the overhand method of work trig out a vein,after
the levels have been driven and the
vein blocked out by upraises into blocks
of 150 feet in length and the width of
the veiu, then the workable blocks of
vein matter are sloped from the upraise
both ways for a distance of H feet. The
miners begin at tbe upraist* and break
away a slice as wide as the vein and six
or seven feet high     The ore is then
Kicked over aud delivered at the level
elow. After a slice has beeu removed,
the hill hole is timbered, the ludghth of
tbe slice removed, with close laid, round
logs of about six inches in diameter
One slice after another is removed until
the upper level is reached a.id the block
is exhausted. It is not uncommon in
tho working veins which are entirely
pay dirt to allow the broken ore to
gather in the waste space to such convenient height as will give the intiieis a
footing. The excess is removed .and the
whole accumulation is removed as soon
an the stope is exhausted The ore
which accumulates in the chute is drawn
off as rapid lv as circumstances will per
mit. The chute is never emptied bur is
removed only of the excess. This plan
prevents the rolling of the ore down the
chute, and so prevents an excessive pulverization of the ore. As rich ore is
usually brittle, the lose induced by such
pulverization would be great.
This division at the present  time,
more than any other mining division iu
southern British Columbia, is attracting
the most attention from mining men.
prospectors and  capitalists    It is the
southern divison of the district of North
East  Kootenay and is easily reached
from the north  aud  south by way of
Golden and Fort Steele, while manv of
the prospectors  have come from the
went over the divide from West Kootenay.   The richest mineral portion is
that which lies west of the Columbia
river.   The chief properties have been
found  up  Toby   creek,   Horse  Thief
creek, No 2 creek and their tributaries
Indeed, the rush into Tobv creek from
the east and west  is great or than the
rush that took place Into Perry creek,
in tho Fort Steele Mining Division, iu
1895-0 but with butter  results.   Some

The dividend haa been anticipated
f jr some time, as it was known that
the mine had shipped enough ore to
nay all indebtedness and to leave a
handsome intuit iu tbe treasury.
It is the intention of the company
topav a dividend regularly each
month and the amount is not expected to fall below three cents per share.
It is more probable that it will be
considerably above that sum in the
irear future. It Is the intention to
set the figure at a sum which tbe
management feels confident can be
kept up regularly. This is the first
