Croup of elni'iiB that is situated uo in
the granite l*R on Fonr Mile,creek near
the Fisher Maiden property. This croup
ol claims is owned hy William Valentine,
of this place, who has done considerable
development work upon (he group, most
of Ihe work beinn confined tu developing
tie veins on the Fairmont, Freeport and
Fairliope claims.
On the Fsirmont claim is a ten foot
fissure vein Iving in the granite formation
and upon which' considerable work has
been done. This vein averatres across
its whole width 40 ounces in silver tn the
ton while there are numerous streaks in
the ledue that will give assay returns of
from 130 to 11.0 ounces in silver and
from !j2. to (3, in gold to the ton.
Specimens can be selected thst a'o
neatly pme i-itver which will asssy up
into the thousands. The ore Is what is
known as dry, carries very little lead, a
sma'l amount of zinc and quantities ol
stephsnite, or black silver, and chlorides
of silver.
On tlie Freeport and Faiihope claims-
which join the abow, a large amount of
work has been done and they are alreatly
developed srfficently lo make it a ship
pini! mine, just as toon as transportation
facilities become available.
On these claims is a five loot fissure
that has been traced for some di«tance
and which contains a ten inch paystreak
that has heen traced and woiked u|on
for over 600 feet in length. Thia paystreak averages in value 246 ounces in

The paper on B. C. Auriferous Quartz
Deposits, written for a British mining
magazine by J. D. Kendall, has lieen
republished in pamphlet lorm and will
doubtless help to counteract the effect ol
recent failures in British Columbia mio -
ing by British operators It is satisfactory to receive the wrter'n assurance
that in regard to quartz, mining in the
province very little British money has
been lost, and even that little has not
heen duo to lack of opportunities so
much as to bad management. In this
latter respect, Mr. Kendall firmly puts
his finger on past errors, Owing to the
keen commercial rivalry of American
mining men, we must improve our
methods. Very properly he denounces
such unbusinesslike procedure—to use
no harsher term—ss purchasing pro-
nerlies on vendors' reports of building
mills before sufficient ore is exposed to
teed them, etc. His strictures on the
habit of placing men in charge who are
too inexperienced to deserve such responsibility are, we fesr. only too well
deserved, but, in spite uf Ihe ninny
blunders made in the past, he is of
opinion that capital has an extensive
nnd profitable field of operation in
British Columbia in developing quartz
deposits if the money is properly expended.

filed at Spokane with the county audi-
ter for the Kendall Gold Mining company, with a capitalization of $2,500,-
000, divided Into 500,000 shares at the
par value of $5 each. The trustees of
the company are A. B. Campbell, John
A. Finch and R. K. Nelll, all of this
city; Henry Wick of New York and
H. T. Kendall of Lewiston. The first
action of the compauy will be to put

the handling of the ore from the mine.
Details for the construction of the
plunt nre now being drawn up, and lt
will be installed as soon as they are
completed. There is enough ore In the
mine to keep the mill going at Its fullest capacity, as over 300,000 tons are
already blocked out ready for treatment.
A giant nugget, weighing $264, was

How Can Ihe Danger Be Avoided?
The reported cases of poisoning
from thc use of alum linking powder
have awakened tint public to the serious danger which menaces the health
of the people of tlie country in tho
numerous alum powders which are
Urged upon  consumers.
Generally, ilium powders may lio
known from the price ut which tliey
arc sold, or from the fact that tliey
arc accompanied by 11 gift, or arc disposed of under some sclieme. The
alum powder costs but a few cents per
pound to DUke, and is often sold at 20
or 25 cents a pound; and sometimes
as low A*i 10 cents.
It is impossible to nuinc all the
alum powders in the market, but any
baking powder sold at a low price, or
advertised as costing much less thnn
the well known, high olaM powders,
or accompanied by a present, or disposed of under any scheme, is of this
class, detrimental to liciiltli and to
be avoided.
These facts should incline consumers to turn a deaf cur to all importunities to buy the inferior powders.
The wise housekeeper will decline in
all cases to take them.
R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of
Trade for last week says:
The labor situation in many parts of
the country was still seriously unsettled and constitutes a reason for hesitation Is some industries, discouraging
new operations which satisfactory con
ditlons would otherwise stimulate. But
a quick decision is to be expected In
some of these labor controversies, and
in the meantime trade is encouragod
by reports of satisfactory condition of
winter wheat over a large portion of
the country. As for spring wheat, the
crop was put In under favorable conditions'and there have been few unsatisfactory reports. Railroad earnings for

and 23.2 per cent over 1899, reflecting
a continued activity In the country,

and 59,1 per cent over 1899, with gains

Of 27.1 per oent over 1900 and 27.5 per

The cessation of manipulation in

The diseases most feared are those which are
inherited—handed down from generation to generation, and family to family. By far the most
destructive of these is Cancer, which finds the
greatest number of its victims among the children
nntl grand-children of those whose blood was tainted
with this dreadful malady. You may carry this poison in the blood for years, but
as the ¥it_il powers begin to wane a slight bruise or cut, wart or mole, sore or
pimple may develop into Cancer. From middle life to old age Is the time when
the slumbering poison is most apt to break out, a sore or ulcer often degenerating
into Cancer, uml Tumors become more progressive and ulcerate through the skin,
the sharp, shooting pains causing the most intense suffering.
The Cancer patient naturally grows despondent as one after another the usual
remedies fail, antl the sore shows no sign of healing. The impurities that have
been accumulating in tlie System, perhaps for generations, cannot oe eliminated nor
the poisoned blood made pure by salves, washes and plasters. The proper treatment
is to purify and build up the blood, remove the cause, when tbe sore or ulcer heals.

York,   June   10.—The   Financier
One of the surprising features of the New
Vork bank statement of dune 8 ia the extension of 121,884,400 in the loan item.
The effect of this increase was shown in a
I'oi'ii'-poiiiling rinc in deposits, and as this
in turn necessitated a very much larger reserve thc excess surplus suffered a decline
of about 08,000,000, the loss of nearly
$3,000,00 in cash holdings having been an
appreciable factor in this respect. The
present excels stands at $13,341,500, as
against $21,253,050 for the preceding week.
The decline is equivalent, therefore, to 37
per cent, which, for one week's operations,
is unusually Inrpe. The increase in the
loan item can bo attributed in part to
I'nion Pacific convertible bonds, operations
which called for heavy .accommodations
•luring the week, and the fact that one
bank which had a great deal to do with
the transaction reported an increase in
loans of about $8,00O.00O strengthens Ihis
theory, In addition, however, it is known
that commission houses have been borrowing heavily, especially on long time, and
litis also assisted in swelling the volume of
outstanding loans.

Our present member, last election,
received 80 per cent of the votes cast
here, but we feel aaie in saying that
he would not to-day receive ten per
cent, simply because of the disgust
fell here against the Government and
the faulty system of the distribution of
the public funds. The actions of the
Lands and Works Department are as
much responsible for the stagnation
here as is the action of the smelter
trust or the decline in lead   values,

The long continued ' neglect of the
Government towards Red Mountain
is exasperating. There only remains
thirteen working days before the appropriation for the wagon road will
lapse and from present appearances
the apathy of those who might push
the work through ia undisturbed.
Many efforts have been made by those
interested to find out what is causing
this delay and Member Green and
Road Inspector Moore have been
applied to many times during the last
nine months, but both seem to be in
the densest ignorance in the matter.
It was senii-otticially given out that
some disagreement with the Miner-
Graves Syndicate was at the bottom
of the trouble, but surely the Government can do wbat tbey agreed for the
people of Silverton and the other
claim holders on lied Mountain, even
should tbey not bo able to agree as to
the location of the road or the manner
of building it with the Rockland
The studied neglect of this camp is
discouraging. On the Kaslo slope
prospect* can hare government roads
built tor thero, pleasure grounds and
sidewalks are provided at government
expense in other places, needles* but
expensive wagon roads arc built where
no mines exist simply to boom trade
in other camps, but the Silvertou
district, apparently, cannot even get
trails to producing mines. In three
years only 81000. haa been expended
here in new roads or trails by the
Government, this being a refund voted
the Hewitt mine, being about ten per
cent of the taxes contributed by the
camp and vicinity.
The whole system of road and trail
building througbt the Province is
rotten. The Department of Lands
and Works is not in touch with the
people and the squandering of public
money by the member* for political
purposes is too much in evidence. If
the people of this camp, or of the
Slocau, bad power to build and repair
their own roadrand trails the country
would be developed fifty per cent
farther than it is at present, and the
cost to them would not have been
nearly so great as it is now. A
county division, such as is bad in the
progressive provinces, could, with
advantage to all concerned, be inaugurated, and tbe people could pay for
what they get. and, what is more to
the point, get what they pay for.
The necessity of having to beg and
petition for a small share of their own
money, and to be gratefully thankful
for whatever is doled out to them, is
played e»t.
It would seem just at present that
the powers that be were purposely
holding back tho prosperity of this
place. We have, within a radius of
ten miles, several dry silver properties
and many gold and gold-copper
prospects, all of which could aud would
bn working if transportation were
afforded, which wopld .relieve tho
tension caused by tlie shuttitig down of
the silver-lead mines. Several of
these properties aro in a position to
ship, but not a drill is being turned in
any of them, simply because of lack of
Green   or   Black.

"Just n'cnmping." These three
words tell the life led by the prospectors; that restless army of men who
prowl in the deepest canyons and on
the biiow covered peaks throughout
the length and breadth of the Rocky
Mountain region.
The prospector is the product of the
West, the forerunner of civilization
and tho pioneer of all our prosperous
towns and mining camps Seldom
does he reap the lull benefit of his
discoveries, which loo often go to enrich some mining shark, who after tin-
trail has been biased and the road
made passable into a new country
follows to reap the rich harvest made
possible by thc toil and exposures
endured by the hardy  prospector.
The prospector cannot endure to
wait and nlthough he may know that
in a little time he will be ablo to sell
out at a big figure his restless nature
goads him to sell to sote speculator
for a small sum and again beheads
into the wilds. He strikes a new
prospect, founds yet another camp
and makes up his mind this time to
stay with it and settle down. Then
staggers into the camp some prospector
from the yet deeper wilds, half dead
with fatigue, hunger and exposure and
with scarcely enough life in his body
to keep his soul irom slipping over the
divide. He brings news uf new
diggings and at once the camp is in a
turmoil. Those prospectors who can
sell out for a grub stake do so nud
those that cannot abandon their claims
and strike out for the  new  discovery.
How many men struggling in the
Klondyke or mushing across the frozen
plums of Cipfe Nome have leen Leadville, Butte aitt! R.js»liind spring into

but neglected their opportunities in
these places, too rest less to await the
advance of civilization and too anxious
tj be in ou everv stampede?

We've pnt away the overcoat
A dozen times or ao,
luiHigiiiing tliat chilling winds
At laat had censed to blow.
We've placed it in the cedar chest,
Where mollis ne'er cause dtsmav,
And lelt relieved because we thought
For months it thete would suy.
But ja tt as often (rom the chest
The overcoat we've drawn,
Kemov ,1 ihe wrinkles from its folds
And gladly put Hon.
For MiiMt-uly a ehuiige has come
From mild to frosty air,
And there waa coinfplt when one had
A heavy coat to wear.
*Twns in the month of Mar"h this game
Of hide and seek commenced,
For then we didn't realize
What we were up auain«t,
We never dreamed when Hist we put
Tne overcoat away
That u'l-ntle sprint* had np her sleeve
So many t rinks to play.
But Inter on we learned j-ist how
Hie weather joked with men ;
There'd be a day or two of spring,
Then wii.ter came auain.
One dsy we'd shed the overcoat,
Tlie next day put. it on,
And thus kept changing hack aud forth
Till peace of mind waa gone.
8o now at last we've ceased to think
Of billion it so soon,
Quite reconciled to wearing lt,
I'erhaiM till lata in June.
But even if before that lime
Its tisofullnees is done
The overcoat is hound to make
A tecord breaking run.
