to Silverton's list of shippers. Thi. time
it is th. Emily Edith group, fcbat ia to
take its place on the already large list,
as a producer and its place trill rank

Tho Emily Edith property that ..some
jiix months ago was known mewl? as a
remarkably floe prospect, has under Uie
efficient management of E Remmelmeyar
been developed into a property with
sutficent ore in tight to Justify us In
calling it a mine that bas ore to ship,
will ship and continue shipping. The
property waa acquired by purchase by
the present owners late last winter and
developement commenced January 10th.
Up to tbe present time Ah. present
owners have don. over 700 fast jjf underground developement oh it, ojnsiating of

straight into the lii-U and follows the
ledge keeping along the hanging wall,
thc ledge being so large that it necessitates cross-cuts being driven at
.intervals to ascertain the amount of ore,
width ol vein and general characteristic**
xii the lode, so as to enable the management to intelligently work tbe property.
The first or. ahnt. .ucoiiutcrcd in this
tunnel starts practically at its mouth
and extends along it the first 160 feet.
At a distance in of 80 feet a wins, has
been m__ V> feet, Mill keeping next to
the hanging wall, and about three feet ol

although /*eally too goad to be called

Another winse S3 feet deep haa been
eouk abont 180 feet in and is equally as
{mod a showing. Tbere are three crosscuts between this point and the face ot
the tunnel, driven to the footwall and
showing Um ledge to be bom 90 to
•lu leet wide. The last of these cross-
,cuta driven to find the footwall is at a
point over 250 feet in and has now s
length of 30 feet and still driving. In
this crosscut is exposed one ot the largest
bodies of or. yet discovered in tlie !',«.-

property is now i|) shape to produce snd
ship considerable ore. Tbe lower or

not many Spokane prospectors bave returned to tell of the wonders they have
found in the much coveted nei\ district,
R. A. Slocum of Colville is interested
in placer properties on the Columbia on
tlie "South Half."   He says:
"I have seen over 500 colors to the pan
taken from the Graveyard claim and fhe
Alma E. and Funny Boy adjoining," said
Mr. Slocum last evening. "Tliew properties are on Rogers' Bar on tne Columbia opposite Uie month of Hunter creek
and about 15 to 18 miles, I can't say exactly, above the mouth of thc Spokane
river. Tlie claims mentioneuYare owned
by a company in which I>avenport and
Colville people arc interested! The gold
is almost all Hour gold with some flake.

quite, all of tbe values. It is Uje it^en-

Townsite  Decision.
Last week in thc Spokane land office a
decision was rendered, which settled an
important question regarding settlement
on the townsite of Repubflc. The decision in effect is that the locations of the
Testae anjjLQalaware ckims aie jtrue ajji*^
eral claims, thus destroying ihe contention of the .contes-int- that. tlie damns
are made for Ine purpose of towniste purposes rather than for legitimate mining.
The decision, while not large in its direct effects, is far reaching indirectly, for
this was regarded as a test case.on w l*i«li
a number of other cases hang. 'Ever since
the location of the Republic and the filing of a number of mineral locations, protests and contests have been piling up in
the local hind office, alleging that many
claims were filed for towniste purposes,'
the land then filed on being more valuable for mineral purposes than for town-
site pui-pos**).
After hearing tbe case the local land'
office officials granted a motion to dismiss
on Uie ground that the contestants did
not show that the land in question.was
not a mineral claim and the contestants
could obtain title to under the mineral
laws. The contention that the surface
showings were meagre wns not. upheld for
the experience of the camp is that depth
must be attained to secure high values.

"W. R. SHAFTER, Major General." '
Shafter for Governor.
Washington, July 18.—Until the American forces leave Santiago province, Major General Shafter will bc military governor of the area surrendered. The Cuban
refugees from Santiago city elected General Castillo of the insurgent army governor of the province, but if he assumes
the duties of that position his office will
be distinct from that of General Shafter,
whow lill assert absolute control over
the conquered territory.
No time will be lost, now tliat Santiago
hu.s' surrendered, in sending soldiers to
trie city to form a garrison during thc
war. Inasmuch ns these troops will have
to remnin* there until -leuce is concluded,
the government will not take the chances
of deadly diseases by sending ordinary
1'cgiineiU.s of immuncs recently organized
to duty there.
The First and Second regiments of im-
inuiies are the only ones available :it
present. The First is commanded by
Colonel Charles S. Kiche and is situated
at (ialveston, Texas, The Second is com-
mandeil by Colonel Duncan S. Hood and
is encamped at Covington, Ln.
Each regiment, comprises 9112 men, all
of whom have either had yellow, fever

The reason it is necessary to be well
coveted while sdeepiijg is that when the
body lies down it is the intention of na-,
ture that it. should rest, and the heart
especially should be relieved o{ its regular
work temporarily. So that organ makes
10 strokes a minute lessPthan when the
body is in an upright posture. This means
COO strokes in 00 inniutes. Therefore, in
the eight hours that a man usually spends
in taking his night'sjcest, the,, heart is
saved nearly 5000 strokes. As it piunps
six ounces of blood with each stroke, it
lifts 30,000. ounces less of blood in. this
night's session than it would during the
day, when a man is usually in un uptjght
•feSition. Now, the body is dependent for
its warmth on the vigor of the circulation
and as Uie blood flows so miieh hbt\) slowly through the veins when one is lying
down the warmth lost, in the reduce*? circulation must be supplied by extra cover-

Carried   by  the  Bar    It    Gives
Wrong Meaning;.
To Set the Thames on Fire—The following has been suggested ss the origin of the
phrase: In Yorkshire a sieve employed
in sifting flour at a mill is called "temsc,"
and tlie combustion has been known to
ensue, through the hard nnd rapid friction
of the iron rim of the tomse against the
rim of the flour barrel—a very unusual
result, and only brought about by a great
deal of work. Therefore, the expression
as il now stands has come to mean effecting something unusual, as the outcome
generally of hard work. Bread, it may be
added, made of finely sifted flour used to
be called temsebread, much in the same
way as the cloth known as tammy, used
ance of an impossibility, whereas the for-
for ladies' shoes, etc., derived it- name
from a corruption of "tamis," or "temsc,''
U'l-ause originally used as a material ia
tha construction of the teniae or sieve^
The fact, however, that the French and
Turks also possess somewhat similar met'*
aphorical expressions in connection wilh
theirjeading rivers, the fieine and the
IXin_ne, may point to another origin of
the phrase. The interpretaUon then in.
vol ved, however, would be thc perform^
merBtplanation is far more in harmony
with*Wie generally received meaning, Unit
of "doing something astonishing."

Little   Ili-slstuin'i*   Kipeeteil.
Very lftfle resi.-ttan6e is"expected to the
invasion of Puerto Rico. Thc war office
has full information as to the condition
and forces of the Spaniards in San Juan,
and believes they will not long be able to
resist the American attack.
Under the fire of Admiral Sampson's
guns the army will affect a landing somewhere in the vicinity of San Juan. While
the army attacks from the reur, the navy
will shell San Juan from the ocean. Under Uie combined fire it is not expected
t1i-.it the town will hold out long. Using
San Juan as a base, the army will com
mence the invasion of Puerto Rica
Hero our troops will only have the
Spaniards to contend with, and not thc
yellow fever. Investigation with respect
to the climatic conditions at Skui Juan
has convinced the ofbcisls that there
would be practically no danger to our
troops -Wiere from yellow fever, which an
nually prevails in wiirly all parts of
Cuba,   ,
The city of San Junn, which is built
on high ground, is said to be exceptional
ly olean for a Spanish town. The water is
said to bo good, and, all things considered, it is not believed that the present nr
rangeinerit for the invasion of the islnnd
will bc interfered'With.
Prenh Troops to lie Sent.
Tlie army for the invasion of Puerto
Rico will be almost entirely composed of
fresh troops from tin: United suites. This
means A radical change of policy on the
part of the army, for it wus .expected
that the movement against Spain's smaller possessions in the. West Indios would
be made by regiments now engaged- in.the
Santiago campaign.
The government relied on the expected
seasoned character of tihe Santiago troops,
and it could not bo foreseen that the
health of, the men would become so impaired in tho short campaign in south-
sastern Cuba as to render them unfit for
duty in Puerto Rico. It is the present intention of the war department to send
quo army corps from t*h*fe Florida const
to participate in the Puerto' Rk-an eiim
paign and.to maintain tho Fifth corps un
dc*r General Shafter in Santiago province
for the present.
At least two regiments of iiiiuiunes will
■fee sent to garrison the aity of Santiago.
The president and secretary of war are
disinclined to use more men than absolutely necessary from Santiago in the
Puerto Rico campaign, on account of the
danger of spreading yellow fever.
Wilson to Head. First Division.
Major General J,. 11. Wilson'has already
been instructed to prepare for the Puerto
Rico expedition at once. He is now at
Charleston, S. (.'., and he will go nt the
head of the first division of the First
army corps, with the first troops started
for Puerto Rico.

' The smallest cows In Uie world are to

Washington, July 10.—The arms surrendered by the Spaniards'nt Santiago to
(ieneral Shafter will be kept by the United Suites government. Uiis conclusion
reached late this evening by the president
nnd Secrctnry Alger, was made public by
the bitter ns he left his office Uniight for
his home.
"All those who have arms will turn
them over to the government. This i*
These wero the secretary's words when
asked for information.
"And," lie ndded, in response to further
inquiry nnd to clenrniiy doubt thnt might
exist on tho subject, "the rifles will not bc
returned to S|iain."
This decision no doubt has already been
coniiniinicnted to General Shafter. Up to
the time when Secretary Alger's emphatic
statement disposed of ull doubt on the
uiHtter it wo- thought consideration
might be given to the appeal of General
Toral thnt his men might be allowed to
take their anus. In fact, it was said by
a high department official that the president would await the recommendation of
tho United States commissioners U> the
surrender, "before disposing of the question, especially ns (lenernl Shafter luid telegraphed the department that it was understood that the United States commission would recommend that the Spanish
soldiers return to Spain wHh the arms
they so bravely defended.''
This ihs'ision of Uie president applies
alike to Spnnish soldiers who have net
engaged with the United Stales troops as
well as those who have been participants
in the recent battles.
Nail on the a.lth.
Washington, July 10.—Unless present
plans miscarry the Spanish soldiers mir-
rendered at Santiago will sail from Culm
for Spain on July 25—this date has been
fixed by the war department and every
effort will be bent toward expediting their
departure. It was announced today that
the department hnd decided to iu*k for
bids from steamship companies for the
transportation of the prisoners to their
native land nnd proposals will be issued
next week. The contract, it is understood, will also include thc subsistence of
the men during the voyage.
Luckily for the navy Santiago has capitulated just on the eve of the hurricane
season i*i the West. Indies. The big battleships are able to worry through this
weather with little discomfort* but the
smaller blockade, boats will find the task
of continuing the blocknde fraught with
punitive danger. It is expected, however,
to tighten the lilies of blockade, at any
cost, particularly at those ports connected
with Havana by rail. The surrender of
the eastern end of the island to the United
Staples will afford some ports of refuge for
our naval vessels in case of absolute need.

the effect of your Sblloh'a Cure in cases
of advanced Consumption, I am prepared to sav it is the most remarkable

Within two milea of Silverton is
situated a gold belt, that lor extent
and richness on. the surface ia second
to none in thia rich Province. Although the whole Slocan, and Silverton
in particular, haa long heni noted for
its large and rich bodies of argentiferous (end ores, R is not until lately
that attention has been called to onr
immense bodies of auriferous quarts.
The surface showing* somewhat
resemble those of the now tfunous
Rossland district and the ledges are
equally as large and wall d«(ined.
But the surface ores are sp much richrr
that there ia an comparison, lor where
assay returns of surface ores in Rossland show cents oors give returns of
dollars, aad the improvement in values
as depth is obtained is much more
rapid. Among the mat y gold p -opei-
tiea that have lately came into
prominence are, the L. H. the Little
Daisy, Carbonate Hill aod several
other*. Why should investor* rash
off to the frozen regions of tbe
Klondyka to seek investments, where
they are handicapped by exorbitant
royalties, climatic disadvantages
aod removed from all civilisation,
while here ia a good chpate and
accessible the whole year spand are
propertiee that give promise of surer
aod larger returns. A short time

W« hare both gold and silver, wet and
dry ores, and freo aad base propositions, will surely pay anyone seeking
a mining   investmeat
straight Oppooition oaadidatat and arguing from this, both are claimed a*
Government men. Bat with Henderson of New Westminster the supposition Ij that be would rota want of
•"-onjfdanee in the present Ootwnment
if they should ear-five to **x* tha
House, and it ia generally supposed
tha* some anderstandiug fa this effect
was entered into between him and hia
supporters. It would ha hard to imagine a member from that Riding not
pledged in that way.
In last Saturday'^ edition of several
Government papers, a despatch from
Vanoouvgr was published, purporting
to give an account of aa Opposition
cauous. In this, it waa said, trouble
had ari«en over the leadership of the
party and tha Opposition slate was
outlined. The despatch waa nicely
worded aad dragged in names and data
to sqhstantiate the story. With the
bare exception that aa informal meeting waa held the despatch was a faks
intended to cause dissension in the
Opposition ranks.
It seems probable that the Premier
is on|y w-iting tbe returns from C*i-
siar tqfmnd in hia resignation to the
Lieutenant-Governor. An appeal
may then be made by the Opposition
to the country bat this will depend
largely on the Gassier rota.

There is no longer the least doubt
of the overthrow of the Turner party,
despite the faint hppee held oat by the
Government press, At tho present
time the question! of interest are the
elections going on in Oassiar and the
bias of the two Independent members
elected oa the 9th inst TbatCaasiar
will elect members pledged to the old
rule is decidedly improbable and the
election ot two, or even one Opposition
member In tbat Ridipg, will give the
Opposition a slim working majority.
