Comstock Vein Tapped on the Silver Chief Claim.
Trail ftmelter J2ular tea-Work on  the
Vaacouver   Oro«p—"Dardanelles
Mine  Closed  Down.
If any doubt existed in the minds of
tbe people of Silverton or the stockholders or the various mines iu its
-.J-inity as to whether the mines were
surface deposits or continued down, or
whether the oro bodies were merely
bunches snd the ledges fissures or only
gash veins, tbe question has been settled as tar as the fissures in the granite
formation tn the upper part of the Four
Mile creek is concerned. Not only set-
led but settled moat satisfactorily as far
as the Comstock property is concerned.
This compsny with unbounded faith
11 its It-due.believing it w.uit down,
placed competent men in charge with
instructions to thoroughly explore and
develops the vein. The ont come is
that tbe fissure has been proved to be
continuous, and with no faults or displae
mints. Hundreds of feet of work has
been done, the vein proved up for over
two thousand feet along its trend on the
surface. Eight tunnels have been driven
into the vein varying in length from 100
feet, which is the shortest, to 675 feet the
longest. As the.* tunnels pierce the
rein snd lay one below the other down
the mountain by the trend of tbe vein,
it demonstrates to a certainty tbat not
<>nlv is the voin continuous but thst it
noes deep. Tbe ore bodies or abates go
down as hss bum proved by bting
pierced at various depth by the tunnels.
The ore sbutes improve in size and
value a* greater depth is attained. This
company has within the last few days
cut the rein at a greater depth than evci
before attained, by a crwscut on Ihe

r'.rtensive improvements are being
made st the Trail Smelter to cost in the
neighborhood of $100,000. Bids are now
being received from the biggest manufacturers of smelting machinery in America

capacity of the works up to 500 tons per

"The Canudian Pacific not only wants

The Kettle River Valley Railway Company would pot only build a road into
that country without a dollar of government aid, but would give the government
a bonus of one n.illlon dollars for the
sole privilege of operating a railway in
that country for ten years. This simply
shows what tbe people of the Boundary

A writer In the North American Review advances a cure for pension
frauds In the following terms: There
has been too much secrecy and de-
vlousness connected with the pension
business of this country, and I blush
to own that my profession has taken
no small part In It. Here Is a method
by which frauds aud pretenders can
be got rid of. I*t Congress pass a law
requiring a reexamination of every
pensioner, or applicant for a pension,
who buses his claim on physical disability contracted while discharging his
duty as a Union soldier. A board of
medical examiners should be established In each State-two or more
boards might lie required In some
States to facilitate matters. Each
board should be composed of two mem-
beii, one a surgeon nnd the ether a
physician. They should be selected
solely for their eminent and acknowledged professional ability, aud their
honesty aud standing In the State.
They should give all their time to this
work, and be paid a salary of $20,000
each per year. They should carefully
examine every pensioner lu their respective States, and report to the government exactly the physical condition
of each, and how much, If any, disability In any case wns the result of
service In the war of secession. They
would be influenced by nothing except
the physical facts presented, and always give the applicant the benefit of
any doubt. Such a reexamination
would require about one year to complete lt, and would cost the government from $2,000,000 to (8,000,000,
It may be that we nre, with respect j
to the coming century, In the same im- j
mature mental condition In which the j
people of the eighteenth century were
with regnrd to the nineteenth. If some j
In the preceding century had dared to :
predict the wonderful achievements of j
the nineteenth, he would probably have
been declared a fool, aud treated as i
was Robert Mayer lu Germany, in this j
century, who, after the discover • of |
the law of the conservation of lOice, |
was put Into an Insane asylum.   A like
fate might befall the man who should
dare now to cast a horoscope for the
twentieth century, and to predict ihe
progress of the human mind In    the
various domains of scientific research.
After all, those may Ive right who, In
spite of all those acquisitions on which
we so justly pride ourselves, are   of
opinion that we are still moving    in
only the Initial steps, In the   lending
strings of evolution, and that we are
yet very far from the goal of those material and Ideal alms which the human
race In Its unremitting onward strug
gle is destined to attain, or to show Its
capacity of attaining.    Tlie great Mr
Isaac Newton used, perhaps, the most
appropriate simile when he compared
men with children who on the seashore
pick up here and there a curious pebble or colored shell, while the great
sea of truth lies still unexplored before
them.    We can only conjecture as to
the probable course as we cannot know
which position we occupy in the course
of human evolution—whether we are
still tn Us beginnings or well advanced.
Tills lies hidden in the bosom of the
Lake Doniphan, In Kansas, is one of
the most peculiar bodlee of water in
the world. In the winter, when the
lake Is covered with Ice, It Is possible
to build a large bonfire upon It by simply making a hole through the Ice nud
applying a match to lt. Instantly the
flames shoot up five or six feet and
burn with great brilliancy for a minute or two. The supply for the flames
Is natural gas, which bubbles up
through the water the year round, but
it Is only when the surface Is covered
with Ice that tbe gas is prevented frost
escaping and is collected in large bubbles or pockets, from ten to twenty
yards square. If a puncture is made
through the ice to these pockets the
gas escapes and If lighted furnishes
the skater an excellent fire at which he
may warm himself. In some sections
of the lake Ice rarely forms, except In
extremely cold nights, for the gas, lielng warmer than the water and rising
In such large quantities, prevents the
water from freezing. The lake Itself
Is peculiar, lt Is a river lake; that is,
lt was formed from a bend of the Missouri River by the stream taking a
shorter cut across the neck of the bend,
thus leaving a lake shaped like a horseshoe about five miles lu length. The
lake was made In 1891. The gas does
not rise from all Motions of the lake,
but mostly In the western arm. On
the other or Missouri side of the river
are three small lakes formed exactly
as Doniphan has been, but from these
there Is no gas exhaled except occasional small bubbles. Natural gas has
been found in Kansas. A well some fifty-five miles south of I_ike Doniphan, a
few years ago, gave a limited supply of
gas, while at Iola a gas well has furnished several million cubic feet of
gas. It Is believed that Kansas will
yet prove to have gas areas of no Inconsiderable extent and It Is thought
i hat should a field be discovered It will
be found in an area of which Atchison,
St. Joseph and Kansas City will form
the boundaries.

Early Christian...
The cremation of Francis Willard, following that of several other famous people, shows that the new mode of treating tlie ilcul is increasing in popularity,
snys the New Vork Mail and Express,
When it was started, nearly thirty years
ago, it was a nine days' gossip. At the
time the theosophists cremated Huron de
Palm and strewing his ashes in the
waters of the Hudson it was the talk of
the city. Hut now it is so common that
no one pays any attention to the practice.
Curious enough, the chief opposition to
it today comes from several of the
churches. This is hard to understand, ns
the enrly Christians were almost as much
in favor of cremation ns they were of inhumation, and ns the church at. another
period made use of the bones of dead
Christians to ornament the walls nf the
Catacombs, So strong was the belief in
Immortality at that time that the body
was viewed aB a mere husk, which was
scarcely worthy of attention after the
soul had left it. In some of the Italian
eataeOmba the number of skeletons employed in decorating the walls is measured bv tlie thousands.

Ill our issue of a few weeks ago a misstatement regarding one of our mines
was published by us. The news was
furnished to us by the owner of the
property in question and published by
us in good faith. When confronted
with the error our misleading informant, adding insult to injury, 'remarked that no importance would be
attached to what was published in the
8I-VERTONIAN. We desire to iuforro
him that the article in question has
been copied by the following papers;
Spokesman-Rfiview, Spokane Miner &
Electrician, Nelson Tribune.and Koot-
e-ain, and the same report was published in the Ledge   and   Paystreak.
We do not want to publish any-
thing but the truth about our  mines.
It is unfair tn Silverton and to the
S*lyf.ktun*i/.\ to allow us to publish
what is not true, but furnished as the
truth. if a sale is desired for any
property it would be surely damned
by any mining man who reads and
hears mistatement regarding the showing ou the property, Do not underestimate the Sij,tk3xoni.\v. We are
first and last for Silverton and her
mines and jny mining news published
by us is and always will be thn truth
as far as we are concerned. We may
be deceived by our iuforuiant e-ncc
but no more.

Thk feeling of the British people
a rule are strongly in sympathy with
their American cousins in the struggle
they are now entering into with the
Spaniards. A few, no doubt, are opposed to the Americans and their
Monroe Doctrine but they are the
exception, not the rule. The Anglo-
Saxon people north of the 49th
parallel are almost to a man in
full sympathy with the Americans,
having deeu educated up to their present state of feeling by roading in both
the Canadian and American press
about the tcrrrlili* state of affairs that
baa existed in the island of Ouba for
the past three years.
Tbere is hardly a Oananadian family but is represented in the United
States as well as Canada. The same can
be said ih Canada; go where you will,
you will Mud the American, and more
especially in tho West where both meet
on an equal footing and look upon each
other as the same race, with the same
motives and ideas. In the volunteer
army now being raised a large percentage of those offering their services are
of Canadian birth, and the records ot
the late civil war show where thousands of young Canadians fought and
bled for the Union,
" And he lay in Libby Prison
For the fight that wasn't blii'n."
The Briton is with  the American  iu
Tiib probable effect of the present
war on the mining industry is a question that has been repeatedly asked in
our midst since the commencement of
active hostilities. In most cases where
capital is called into play the effect of
war has been to tighten the irioney
market and cause investors to pause in
their investments but among the
silver-lead camps the epposile effect
should be felt The scarcity of silver
coin in Ameri-t, since tbe practical
suspension of silver coinage by the U,
S. mints, has already been felt in time
of peace and the urgent need cf
silver uioney must yc-open the mints
to silver and cause a corresponding
rise in the price of that metal. If the
war with Spain should prove a lenghty
one the price of lead must rise, aa the
lead mines of Spain have been mortgaged as security for her war debt
The output of these mines has been the
chief source of Europe's lead supply
and exports from this continent should
increase in ratio with tbe decrcaso of
Spanish exports. It is quite probable
that the present import duty placed
by the States on silver-lead ores will
be abolished and tne price to the producer will be inoresed by the amount
of the present duty.
What West Kootenay lucks is
numerical representation must he made
up for in the ability and alertness of the
representatives. That a more liberal
representation is not given ia due entirely to the obstruction and small methods of tbe crowd of "pe^-nut" politicians who make up tha opposition st
Victoria. Mortally afraid of redistribution, though howling vociferously for it
tbe while.the opposition haa left undone
nothing which might delay such legislation, worry, embaroas and harass the
government. The opposition seems to
have conceived the idea that its only
call is to throw discredit upon and fight
and embarass Mr. Turner and his ministry at every point. That the people
sent them there to legislate and enter
into nnd assist plans tor the advancement and betterment of the courijry has
been lost sight of by tbe opposition
members, iu their little, narrow policy
of obstruction, tho main object of which
is to lift themselves into office by discrediting the present government.
It would be a sony day for Briii-li
Columbia should tlie crew of iucapahies
who make up tbe present opposition ever
come Into power.
A man walking along a highway cannot lie ***rr*'e'r*ted to prcgrese with tree
srep against the hundred and one machinations of small h iys hidden ia the

j strong enough to brush everything mjide
but in doing it the full execution ol his
open ami liberal policy toward all parts
of tbe province has been delayed, ami
held back by the petty and senseless opposition of the little fellows in tbe hedge.
Tlie first football game of tbe seatoq

made an attack on the enemies centre

redoubtable Macdonald. Billy Buuch

of action then shifted to the other end
of the field and Rob Walker left a terriblo

others in rapid succession from Edward

loosened tbe cover. Goal keeper Mcintosh of the Fire Eaters made a lightiniug
change as the ball was rushed towards
the goal and with groat dexterity dodged
the pigskin as it rolled between the goal
posts. Cries of "offside" "fou." 'kill
de referee" arose from tho ranks of the
grimy Fire Eaters and but for the timely
appearance of Agent Clark on the sceno
with a yellow war bulletin it is hard to
say to what sanguinary end tbe sffslr
