mine is systematically showing un an
immense body of ore, principally concentrating. Atoneplacointtiemain workings a cross-cut bus cut a streak of clean
ore nearly three feet thick. About 2000
tons of good concentrating ore, that wi|l
concentrate about 9 into 1, is lying on
the dump. Extensive improvements
are also being made in the buildings at
the mine.
The delivery of lumber for the Comstock Concentrator is to begin at once.
Hill Bros, will deliver at tho wharf
120,000 feet of lumber and Brady and
Anderson have the contract to deliver it
at the concentrator. Thirty tons of
machinery are expected in a few davs
and will be taken up nt once. While
the concentrator is being erected opera ■
tionsat the mine will be carried on as
usual, and at the verv least 100 ton3 of
clean oro will lie shipped from Silverton
by this company before Christmas.
A sfrlke of considerable importance
was made the first part of the week on
the, Marion claim on Silvrr Mountain
near the California mine. A history is
attached to this find. It appears that
about four years ago, two men, called
Long and Tucker, discovered the out-crop
of nn ore shute on the Marion chum, the
ore being about six inches wide at the
surface. The ownors of the claim, Messrs
Sproat. Mclnnis, jVlexander and Marino
of flow Denver, were informed of the
tind hut not of the exact location and a
reward of $300. was demandod by the
finders before they would tnke the owners to the spot where the galena was ex
posed. The owners however deeming tho
information too dear or refusing to buy a
pig in a poke, would not pay tho price
demanded but searched in vain for ihe
mineral. This week Messrs. Marino and
Mclnnis handed over the *300. required
nnd were shown the oro on the surface.
Work will be boguu immediately on tliiis
showing and its true valua learnt.

Emily Edith mine is to bo largely increased at the beginning of this month

The location of tlie exhibit of minerals
in the Spokane fruit fair 'building has
been changed by the management and at
the request of Manager Stuart The display will have the south end of. Uie south
wing, where ample space lias been set
aside for it and where it will be separate
from tlio fruits and agricultural products.
Manager Stuart received a letter from
C. T. Cross of Silverton, B. C, who says
tliat the cabinet in which the ores from
that district will be displayed is about
completed, lt will be four feet square.
He says: "The mineral exhibit we are
sending will weigh at least 1,000 pounds
and may reach 2,000. Over 20 mines will
be represented in the exhibit. We have
sever-.1 large blocks of clean ore which
we thought we could place on the floor
uround the cabinet if there will be room.
Our representative will reach Spokane
October 1 or 2 and he will unpack the
samples and arrange them in the case."
"That is the sort of letter that makes
, hs feel a.-: if we had not been working
altogether in vain," said Manager Stuart "A number of camps are coming to
tlie front in just that enterprising way,
and I think the exhibit Will cover tho
majority of the camps around Spokane.
Rut there are a number Which have not
responded. I have almost begged with
tears in my eyes to get a display from
Trail Creek division, but the claim owners up there seem to have forgotten tliat
(he camp owes something to Spokane,
and 1 have been unable to get any assurance that an exhibit will be sent
"Republic is almost as bad. That
camp is depending almost entirely on
Spokane to bring it to the front, and yet,
apparently, there is no one there who is
enterprising enough to take the matter
in hand and get up an ore display for
the fair. In other towns mass meetings
have been called to arrange for it but
Republic has not made a move. The south
half of the reservation will be better represented than the north half unless some
of those people up there get a move on."
A meeting of -tie citizens was held in
Slocan City a few days since and all
plans made for sending an exhibit, to
Spokane, D. Hanlon was appointed to
come with the display as the representative of the camp. Ymir camp will have
a fine display. Baker City is coming.
Florence and Dixie camps will' be in it.
Okanogan mines will be represented. VV.
H. V. Kickimls of Harpster, Idaho,
writes: "I expect to be at tlie fruit fair
and will he in the mineral exhibit with

a great exhibit on the way. The mines
around Hope, Idaho, will send displays.
• P. C. Stoess, who lately returned from
a trip to Alaska, will show specimens of
the ores of coast mines and will also have
on exhibition a collection of curios.
The marble and onyx companies of Stevens county are arranging displays whieh
they promise will excel in beauty anything ever shown in the mining department before.
Some mining machinery will be shown
including some of tbe latest improvements in gold saving machinery which
will be in practical operation.
. Stevens County Mines.
'Almost the first mine in Stevens county, and in fact the first producer, is the
Old Dominion, situated six miles east of
Colville on Old Dominion mountain. This
property was discovered in March, 1885,
was a producer from the grass roots, has
made fortunes directly and indirectly
for scores of men, can boast of more development work than any other mine in
the state, and is still rich with ore bodies' ai a great depth along the main tunnel, which penetrates the mountain to a
,-        depth of almost a mile.   The mine has
I not been worked for nearly two years on
account of the low price of silver, but
. thc management has recently put a force
jj^^   to work clearing out the tunnels and lit-
II ting the property up for active develop-
m ment and it ia expected that the mine
Wtww   will again enter upon the work of extract-
r ing ore from the depths that have al
ready been reached by the interior works.
. The most extensive shipper of ore in
the state of Washington today is the
Bonanza, 10 miles north of Colville. lt
was discovered in the fall of 1895, and
since that time has passed through many
hands. It has been sold under the hammer two or three times, and has been' a
most expensive investment for those who
have ventured upon exploiting its ore
deposits. The present management however, found it to be a different proposition. A number of Spokane men bought
it a year or so ago at sheriffs sale, and
employed the best skill in the mining
r profession to develop it, with the result
that it is today one of the most substantial mines in tlie state. It is a galena proposition, but the ore bodies are
much heavier than in any other property
of the same Character in the country, lt
has been shipping two cars of ore per
day to the smelters of the coast, and
there seems to be no limit to the supply
that keeps widening and coming up as
depth is obtained. About 40 men are employed, and aside from the extraction of
ore, a force of men is kept busy sinking
to greater depth all the time. The lower
workings are down nearly 500 feet, and
the mine is paying all expenses for dead
work and laying aside a liberal sinking
A Good Object Lesson.
There is on object lesson in the history
of the Mountain Lion, in Republic camp,
for oilier claim owners to profit by. As
a prospect the claim was not more favorable looking than dozens of others in
the camp, but W. II. Brown, who owns
half ot the claim, is a miner and under-
stands his business,    He laid his plans' silver.
could reach the lodge. He had to go even
50 feet farther before he demonstrated
that he had millions in sight.. He and
his partner furnished every dollar that
went into the development until it was
no longer possible to operate without machinery, when some assistance was called
for. The assistance came promptly, and
it is probable that by July 1, 1800, the
property will be among the dividend payers of the camp. If other claim owners
would follow the example set by Superintendent Brown they would aoon
know whether or not their claims were
valuable, and could quickly end their
suspense, and in most oases it would not
cost more than to burrow around on tlie
•'African  Clre-n"  Ia Coming.
'A Montreal dispatch to the Toronto
World says that Charles J. McCuaig, the
well known stock broker, has returned
from London, where he spent three
months. He brings thc news that the
"African Circus" has turned its attention
to Canada. Being asked to explain, Mr.
McCuaig said: "it means that Cecil
Rhodes, Belt and others who have been
operating in South Africa, have now
turned their eyes toward Canada. Jn
fact, one of their number, a British member of parliament, passed through Montreal tlie other day hound for Rossland,
and it is supposed tliat with his arrival
in the Kootenay quite a number of properties will change hands."
Strike In Flathead County.
J. M. McPhee, a well known prospector from Uie Slocan country, B. C., who
has been prospecting this summer on the
south fork of Flathead river, this state,
returned to Kalispell, Mont., a few days
ago after doing some work on a claim he
has located there. Mr. McPhee has five
feet of high grade gold, silver and copper ore in the face of an open cut. The
vein, which is from 10 to 12 feet in width,
can be traced nearly the full length of
the claim.
Strike In the Bnckhorn.
A rich strike has 'been made in the
Buckhorn claim in Dead wood camp. An
open cut has exposed an ore 'body which
gives an average value of 0 1-2 per cent
copper and over $4 gold. A shaft was
sunk 14 feet in Uiis, and from the bottom
of the shaft values as high as 21 per cent
copper and $0 in gold have been obtained.
This body of ore is no less than 200 feet
wide on the surface. It is of the same
character as that in Mother Lode, Sunset |
and other big Dead wood properties. The
Buckhorn is owned by E. A. Bielenberg
and J. Dunn.      ,
The Eureka queen. Tunnel.
News comes from Republio that the
showing in the Eureka Queen has greatly improved, the tunnel having encountered quite a flow of water aad the rock
in the face showing oxide of iron, both
favorable indications that thei expected
ledge is not far away. The property adjoins the San Poil on the south and it
is the hope of the owners to strike the
San Poil ledge, which is thought to run
through the claim, though its exact
course is not to be determined by surface showings. The property

and commissary general's departments of
the army and he suggested that the conduct of these departments should receive
especial consideration, lb this specific
request, he added, it was his desire that
the entire military organization should,
if it appeared necessary, be made the subject of inquiry, saying he wished the commission to go to the bottom of the subject in all cases and proceed with Us

They traced her from Portland, Or., to

Paris, Sept 20.—Mine. Paulmler, wife
of M. Charles Ernest Paulmier, member
of the chamber of deputies from the de
paitment of Calvades, has added another tragedy to the liewildering intricacies of the Dreyfus pilot Mine. Paulmier Friday entered the offices of La Lan-
terne and asked to see M. Millerand. M.
Millerand waa absent and M. Ollivier,
who was present, stepped forward to receive the lady, who, without any explanation, whipped out a revolver and tired
twice. M. Ollivier fell to the floor wounded.   He was taken to a hospital.
Mine. Paulmier was taken into custody
and when questioned answered coolly: "1
wish to kill M. Millerand."
She explained that La Lanterne had
slandered herself and husband because
her husband had written the letter to
General Chanoiiic, the minister of war,
witli reference to putting a stop to the
attacks upon the army provoked by the
Dreyfus affair.
The alleged slander published in I .a
Lanterne was contained in an article written by a journalist named Turol, an- not
by M. Millerand or M. Ollivier, in which
mention was made as to the conjugal relations of Mme. Paulmier and her husband.
The article, it is presumed, was published without M. Millennia's knowledge.
One of the bullets tired by Mme. Paulmier entered Ollivier's chest and the
other struck him in the armpit.

Washington, Sept. 20.—The officials
here are watching with interest the progress being made by the military commission in Havana in securing the evacuation
of the island of Cuba. The commission
lias been slow in making reports to Uie
war department, but from the latest it
appears Uiat the body would like to have
more definite instructions as to procedure.
It seems that Uie Spanish side has said
that they could not begin the evacuation
of the island until Uie first of November
and that it could not be completed before
February 28.
In view of the alarming state of the
Cubans, who are suffering from hunger
and their inability to obtain work, Uie
president decided that he could not assent
to the consumption of so much time.
Therefore he caused the commission to be
instructed to demand that Uie evacuation
by the Spaniards begin not later than
October 13 and that it be completed by
December 31 next.
What the result of this demand will
be is not yet known, but it is said the
administration is determined to allow no
dilatory tactics on the part of the Spanish forces in leaving the island, although
disposed to permit reasonable indulgence.

the cruiser New York, the Scorpion and

The successful issue of the attempt to

Otr Siboney the barometer and the
wind indicated the approach of a hurricane, and Uie towing power was increased.

Only Trophy of Santiago.
Iho Infanta Maria Teresa has always
been one of thc favorite war ships of the
Spanish people, possibly because of her
name. She is an armored cruiser of
about 7,000 tons displacement. Her speed,
when in fighting trim, is believed to bo
something over 20 knots an hour. Her
battery at the time of the battle off Santiago consisted of two I 1 inch, 10 5.5-inch
and a number of rapid lire guns. .She
has an arnior belt of 12 inches over her
most vulnerable parts.
It cost Spain over $2,000,000 to build
her, but she was sunk by Admiral
Schley's flag ship Brooklyn in 20 minutes. Of Uie six wnr ships Spain lost
on that memorable day in July the Infanta Maria Teresa is Uie only one that
will ever float again.

Colonet Roosevelt, they say, is "ineligible" to run as a candidate for governor of this state at this time because public records show that he is a resident of

Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, when seen,

Paris, Sept. 20.—At a meeting of the
cabinet this morning, all the ministers
being present, a decision was Uiken in
favor of revision of the trial of former
Gaptiln Dreyfus, and the documents in
this case will be scut to the court of cassation.
Crowds of people outside the ministry
of the interior, where Uie cabinet eoun-
cil was held, loudly cheered the ministers,
The cabinet ordered Minister of Jus-
tiec Saii'ien to lay before the court of
cassation the petition of Madame Dreyfus
for the revision of her husband's case.
This court, therefore, will decide the le-
gal quattlttn M to whether the first trial
of Dreyfus was vitiated hy the forgery
committed by the late Lieutenant Colonel
The minister of justice has given inst ructions that proceedings ure to be
taken Immediately against any one attacking the army.
In the liitransigeant today Henri Ro-
chefdrt accused Major E-iti-rlia/.y of having
been bribed by the so-called Dreyfus syndicate to "cover hiinAt-lf with dishonor
by confessing to a forgery, of whicli
charge he waa twice acquitU-d."
Bochefoi't adds that he paid Estcrha7.y
1,000 francs for copies of all the documents in the case and in addition, with
two other newspaper men, he paid Ulster*
ha/.y, who was without funds, 'JOO francs
monthly to prevent Wm dying of hunger
while waiting to obi am o. petuion. Continuing, Roehcfort says:
"Recently, without any apparent incentive, Estcrhazy mysteriously went to
London, abandoning 300 __pct monthly.
Why this emigration? Who paid for Uiis
journeyT With what money hus Kster-
hu/y paid for his meals!"
M. I'lemeneeau, in the Aurore, remarks:
"France is divided into two camps,
those who conceive that the interests
of the country depend on the conecul-
incnt of facts by lies and those who
have a siiflicicntly high esteem of the
country to separate enthusiasm from is-
-•fisions of justice and truth."
The libra Parole asserts that lvrter-
lni/y has U'h-giaphed to the minister ot
war protesting against the story published in the Observer of London purporting to be a confession made by the
major, the Substance of which was that
he was the author of thc bordereau, the
document which is said to have furnished the proof of the guilt of Dreyfus.

That thc toad is beneficial to the farmer and particularly to the gardener is
admitted by every one who has observed
its habits. AddiUonal facts bave been
secured by the recent observations at the
Massachusetts experiment station which
show that 11 per cent of thc toad's food
is composed of insects und spiders beneficial or indirectly helpful to man. The
toad feeds on worms, snails, sow bugs,
common greenhouse -icsts, and the many
legged worms whicli damage greenhouse
and garden plots. It feeds to some extent on grasshoppers aifd crickets, and
destroyi large numbers of tints.' It consumes a considerable number of May beetles, rose-chasers, click beetles or adults
of the wireworm, potato beetles and cucumber beetles. It is a prime destroyer
of cutworms and anny worms.
To all agriculturists the toad renders
conspicuous service, but the gardeners
and greenhouse owners mny make this
animal of especial value. Every gardener
should aim to keep a colony of toads
among his growing crops, and the practice of collecting and transferring them
to the gardens is a commendable one.
While the sense of locality is strong in
the toad, and it will often return over
considerable distances to its original
haunts, yet it may be induced to remain
in now quarters if there is a sufficient
food supply. Many farmers supp'y toads
with artificial shelter, made by digging
shallow holes in the ground and partially covering tlicm with a bit of board or
flat stones. In such places toads will often remain for many days, sallying forth
at night to seek food.

a protest is being circulated tq-day(Thurs-

The order appears to have been ill-advised and hasty as there has been no
investigation made that shows any connection whatever between the fever and
the well water. As a matter of fact all
the wells being drive wells to a depth of
20 feet or more, proves beyond a doubt
that the ypter is purer than any water
taken from the Lake, as nil filth and garbage in tbe lake will naturally drift to
this end of the lake. This action alsq
destroys what little fire protection we had
from the wells. ' So this officer who gave
the order had better procure a fiddle and

The editorial appearing in the

true. Yet, the\t we of the Cootenajs

dollars towards building up be West-

out of their way to try and elittle our

of Spokane gives more legtiimate
mining news of southei n British
Columbia and goes to more pains to
collect it than, all of our co st papers
combined. Regarding whs; Spokane
has'done for Nelson, it is foil known
that it has been th» chief fictor in
booming not only Nelson itself but
in building up the Slocan, from which
Nelson is at present drawioj her main
trade, by persistently callin; capitalist's attention to it and is it present

kept it going after it was started until
it got onto its feet and could stand
