Hoing Made at the Vancouver Kno.
New  Ore  Codies Found.

The marked Improvement in Um Vancouver mine, us deyelopemefit work ia
pushed ahead mutt be gratifying to ihe
management as well iib to the atock
holders. Tin* value of the mine Inn
doubled itself this summer, new ore l-i»l-
ies have been discovered and opened up,
new work done und laid out, old Work
straightened out nnd a marked Improve
mont muile noticeable all around.
The drift driven from Uie bottom of the
winze in No. 2 tunnel, where the ore was
sloped last winter, has been driven h-
head through the barruq piece of p-roum!
and into the ore aliiite, which shows il-
selt to bo as bin and rich ph in the bppe'
workings. This shows that the ore
ibate uoek down and bolda its own. A
ijrilt has been run west from the Upraise
between No. 1 and 2 tunnels, in ground
that was supposed to be barren and u
splendid body of ore opened up. Thi*
is being put into shape for itoping ihis
winter. An upraise has been put ia to
connect with the drift driven east from
the main raise between No. 1 and 2 tunnels. A carload of oro hns been taken
cut and sacked while doinc this email
piece of work. This shows (ho extent ol
he ore body in a striking manner.
Shtites have been put in and prepa-a-
tinns made lor atopinz on ibis body
of virgin ground this winter and it only
rusts with the management whether
the Vancouver sends down for shipment
1000 or 2600 Ions of ore this winter. The
ore is there. Already three car load bave
been sacked in getting ready to stope,
No, ,'i tunnel has b*en driven until it
is now under the wiote sunk from No. 2
tunnel and an upraise started that will
be 120 feet lon_ when it brenke through
into No. *.*. As this rsiso is ist.irb d in
more oi less oro and ns tlie on* body i-
known to be big and strong i5 leet below
No. 2, it i« ns sure a thing as can be, in
mining, that Uim rauo will open up yet
another bigldock of sto; ing ground.
Ontsido preparations sre being iriade
for winter and for shipping. The v. ng in
road is lieing put Into shape, one hoi- -j.
bins and blacksmith shop nrj being rr-
ivted ut the mouth uf No. 3 tuoncl and a

ports of new territory in the gi-a-p of tho

and the summing up is made, there will
be little timber left to tell the tale. A
country now sending volumes of tire and
smoke heavenward is Bear Willow and
Jjiike Creek, a magnificent stretch of forest This lire, from its direction, will be
swept on Camp Fulford, which has already been scorched from another direction. Ranchmen on Gore creek are having a desperate time saving their homes,
as the Core range foothills here send a
continuous run of (lames for miles. Along
the side hills near Mintum even the
ground is burning. Cattlemen are getting
their cattle into unburnt districts as nip-
idly as possible, and even then are compelled to keep a close watch on them and
keep them moving. A regular gale is
blowing through the country, which
means the fast traveling fire will bc driven
forward a hurricane of flames.

I.III-U.I-   Tunnel
iii-xuiiN   lu  Savina*
Last week tl.e Mammoth Mining company, of  Wallace, Idaho, broke gTOWKI
ou the largest, piece of development.wore,
with one exception, yet undertaken ra
the OOeur d'Alenes.   This is no less than
the running of a 'tunnel from the level ol
Canyon creek to cut their lead near the
west* end of tlie ground.   The tunne w
be approximately 3„r,oo feet long, and will
cut the lead 1,800 feet below tl"' surface,
1,100   feet   below   the  deepest  work  yet
done  at  the  point  of intersection, and
(100 fet below the deepest spot yet worked
in the mine.    The time required for the
completion of the tunnel is hugely conjectural, ns the  character of the  work
frequently  elmiigcs,    but it is    approximately put at two years.
An undertaking of this kind, costing
$75,000 to $100,000 before a dollar of it
out possibly be returned, is abundant
proof of the faith of the owners in the
permanency of the Coeur d'.VIenc ore
bodies, as if the chute did not go down
the whole cost would be ii dead loss. But
ill the history of the camp there is no
wine which would cause any doubt to
creep into their mi&ds that there was as
much or more ore at that depth than
there has been on any of the Upper levels.
Before the tunnel Lh completed the
shafts of the Helena-Frisco or Tiger-
Poorman may have attained greater
depths, measuring from the surface, than
this tunnel will cut, but it will lie 200
feet deeper than the Helena-Frisco now is
and -ItNl deeper than the TigcrPoorniiin.
it is confidently expected that both of
those properties can be profitably
worked to twice Uie depth they now are,
hoisting the ore and pumping the water,
and if that be true, the Mammoth with
thut immense depth before it is necessary to hoist a pound of ore or pump a
gallon of wuter would seem even when
the lead is out there to be only in its
infancy, and that it will be generations
before its lower levels will be worked
In new of the fact that other locations
hav been, mnde recently and that litl-
ga1ou is in progress to establish Utle to
inii within the city limits supposed to
eotiiiu valuable clay, he was advised by
his attorney Unit a safe plan would be
to mite this land, which is why the Lin-
col is added to the list of Spokane county nining properties.
A l'aiup for Helena-Frisco.

eiithe mine is worked through a tunnel
atllie level of the mill ore bins, which
riis   into   Uie mountain   to where it is
Ul feet below the upper workings of the
mn'.   There a station was built and a
sift sunk.   It is now down 1,000 feet
fin the tunnel level, making Uie 1,000-
fit level of the mine.   A station is now
bug cut at  the bottom of the shaft,
were, as soon as it is completed,    Uie

ii liner or an engineer of wide experience
wild stand appalled at Uie contempU-
ui of such a thing as putting this piece

A proposal has been made by a French
SiivIuk a Iilu.li Per Cent.
The electro-cyanide plant of the Republic Company is making a gratifying
record in saving a high percentage of the
gold. Tho actual saving for August was
01 per cent. On $100 ore this would leave
.$!' in the tailings, and these ure being
saved for future treatment.
The average saving of gold in one day
this week was 03 per cent, one vut returning 05 1-2 per cent
Mining men say these results arc remarkable, especially when the high grade
of the ore is considered. The percentage of saving is as good in high grade
as in low grade ore.
The camp is gratified at this complete
vindiiiition of the judgment of Patrick
Clark. Old time mining men say the
achievements of Mr. Clark, in tukiiu* a
wild prospect 80 miles from a ranlimul,
locating the ore body, blocking out immense reserves of high grade ore, erecting a large and expensive mill, choosing
the right treatment for tlie ore, putting
up the necessary building*, developing the
winter power of the property, paying for
the big outlay, and declaring a dividend
—all inside of 18 months—are unprecedented in the history of American mining.
Mr. Clark's friends are particularly
elated 'because his judgment in selecting
the method of treaUng Republic ores was
flatly "turned down" by a number of
"experts" who inspected thc camp and
analysed the ores.
Cnmp McKinney Claims.
Camp McKinney, B. C, has the center
of the stage in mining matters iu Bpokane just now. The recent rich strike on
the Waterloo has done more, apparently,

in Camp McKinney today. Although
Cariboo capitalization has been increased to 91,800,000, the stock is selling in
Toronto markets for nbout 80 cents,
which is higher than ever and serves to
demonstrate the fondness of the eastern
Canadian for a dividend payer, which has

Colorado Springs, Col., Oct. 3.—'Phis
city had a visitation of fire Saturday afternoon which threatened for four hours
lo destroy the entire business district.
The wind was blowing (UJ miles an hour
from the southwest when the fire started
at the 1). „ It. (). rfaignt depot at the
foot of t'ucliuris street at 2:10 p. m. and
grew rapidly. A strip four blocks long,
north lo south anil two blocks wide from
east to west has lieen bunted over, but al
this hour (S p. m.) the conflagration is
believed to be under control. The flame-,
arc still leaping high in the air over the
binned district but the wind has died
down and there is no doubt that the lire
engines which have come from Denver ami
Pueblo iu response to appeals for aid, will
be able to contiuc the flames within the
present limits.
The Antlers hotel, one of the largest
in the west, three lumber yards and two
blocks of business houses have heen destroyed. In round numbers the loss is
estimated at $1,000,000* Insurance one-
half of  that amount.
The lire started in a pile of rubbish underneath the platform of the Denver _.
Kio Grande freight depot, Within five
minute! it had communicated to freight
cars and it spread so rapidly that it was
impossible to move any of the cars. Half
a car of powder consigned to U. S. Barnes
& Sons exploded. Ilie cars ere thrown
for hundreds of feet and tlie wonder is
Ihut nobody was injured. Then came the
terrible danger to the city.
While the big fires were burning, several'small ones broke out throughout tlie
city, destroying several residences, and
threw the people into consternation. The
limits of the burned district are the Denver & Rio Grands railroad on the west,
Cascade avenue on the east, Pike's Peak
avenue on the north and Cucharis street
on Ihe south. Among the business houses
burned out arc the following: MacFarland
it Hills, blacksmiths; Irving k Sons,
blacksmiths* Silver Moon restaurant.
Kelly Coul Company, Felix Americano.
Hlooine, tailor; Dietz, blacksmith; John
Kline, painter) Hartlett, blacksmith;
Creamer & Jordan, blacksmiths; -losco-
iti, clothing; A. 8ep_in>. clothing: J. iM.
Ilulliuan. shoemaker; S. K. Kline, jewelry; Marlowe Pros., confectioners; Campbell feed store, second hand store, restaurant, and grocery next to Gulf depot, Salvation Army hall, Cuba Clothing Coin
•tuny, Scldolridge Warehouse Company.
Their losses range from fcilHI to $5000.
Ten partly loaded freight cars on the
Denver _ Kio Qranda tracks were burned.
Several arrests have liecii made of persons suspected of starting or attempting
to start fresh fires, but there is no question that the first tiro at the Denver A
itio Grande freight house was entirely accidental, possibly being eaueed by a spark
from a locomotive.

Washington, Oct. 3.—The wnr department lin*. decided to send more troops lo
Puerto Rico. Orders have been issued
directing the Fifth regiment of cavalry,
now ul llunt.-ville, Ala., the Sixth I'nited state- volunteer Infantry, now at
Chickamauga, nnd the Forty-eighth New
York, now ai Fort Adams, to proceed to
such points in Puerto ltico as may be
desired by ths -commanding general in
that island. All troops .u Camp Meade
will soon lie ordered to points in the
south. Some of them may go to Cuba,
but the majority will, for the present,
occupy the new camps recently selected
ill Georgia and  South  Carolina.
li is expected the troopa sent to garrison Cuba will not remain long, and when
they have seen sen ice for a few months
will ret inn to ihis country. The same is
probably true as to Puerto ltico.
It is also Intimated that when the
troops return the volunteers will lie given
lid days' furlough and mustered out. Hy
that time congress will have had opportunity to determine what shall be done
in regard to garrisoning the new possessions.
This determination is no doubt due
io the pressure brought by members of
congress for the mustering out of volunteers from their states and districts.

Tlie decision of Chief Justice M-
Coll, in ths case of L. Peters et »1 «
Chas Sampson end F. P. KhcrwoC,
in favor of the defendants, U no (lout
■rood law and according to law, hut t
lacks considerable of doing justice o
the plaintifl*. They, relying upon If
authority and power supposed to >•
vested iti tho Gold Commisslo*r
acted in good faith in carrying it
their contract, in regard to asscssmit
work and recording same accordinffo
what was supposed to be law, witftie

in-rini'.sion ol the {jovMrnmeut throfi
its officials, are they net er.tilledfjc
compensation from this goverriwt
throuch whose fiult   thnv     have   It
their property1!
No law can   be   framed   that   will
compel a man to work on a claim if he
is not inclined to do so, but laws can
be framed under which an owner of  a
mineral   claim    muufc   do a    certain
J amount of work or forfeit all rights to
h;s claim, which at once becomes public
d"imuiii and is locatable under tho law
by any other   prospector,    What   is
needed is a law compelling   a  certain
amount of work to be performed upon
a claim before a locator has the   right
to record, giving reasonable length   of
time to preform such labor.     A law
by which en a certein  diy   ot   the
year, say Nov Ut, all claim, that have
pot had   assessment   work   preformed
upon them   become   ic-locitablo   by
other parties.    Thus doing away with
the nntidi-luvinn   law   now   ir.    force
under which a certain   cIuks   of  men
travel from one claiufl   to  another,  as
tho date of expiration of   each   claim
falls duo and relocates them.    Something modeled after the law   of   New
Mexico, in regard to the location nnd
assessment  work   of   mineral   claims
would be applicable to .our   province.
The  legitimate prospector ll the forerunner of mines, towiis.^ruilroiids  and
prosperity,    He takes his   life in   his
hands when he striked   out into    the
wilderness   to   discover    mineral and
open up new districts.    He is deserving of credit, h,s   business should   be
fostered by the   government   and   no
stumbling block placed in hi3 road, for
on him   hugely   depends   the    lutuiv
prosperity of this rtoh^tnineral country.
