Mining Notea and Personals.
.The pumps bave been pulled out of
tho 1600 foot level of tbe famous Drum-
lummon mine at Marysvllle, Mont.
Hereafter only the upper levels will be
worked. A vast amount of prospecting
work on tlie lower levels has failed to
show pay ore. The mine la expected to
fill with water to the 700 foot level, but
there is enough ore above that level to
keep the mill running for two years.
The owner is tbe 'Montana Mining company of London.
The Drumlummon Is one of the famous mines of Montana. It was discovered 30 years ago by Thomas Cruse, a
poor Irishman wbo could neither read
nor write, but who persisted in running
a long crosscut tunnel to cut Che vein,
ln tbe face of tbe ridicule of neighbors,
though he bad hardly enough to buy
bacon and beans.
He finally struck the vein and about
20 years ago sold the mine for $1,500,-
000 to the Montana Mining company,
organized by the Rothschilds. That
company bas taken about $20,000,000
out and has paid rich dividends.
During the week the Speculator at
Slocan has struck ore In two places.
The Tamarac group on Springer
creek, near Slocan, bos exposed two
■feet of ore, the bulk of which is of shipping grade.
Good results have been received from
the reoent strike on the Winnipeg mine,
in Boundary district One of the ledges
ie eight feet in width.
Tbe crosscut from the working tunnel In the Victoria mine at Christina
lake, and about 15 miles west of Rossland, ia nearing the main ledge and
mineralised rock has been encountered.
On account of tbe results which have
attended the deep working of the Highlander in Ainsworth district and the
results whic.i bave followed operations
In the Crawford Bay district, there has
been a revival of Interest In the district
surrounding Pilot bay.
W. M. Blackmore, representing a
strong Montreal syndicate, has made
tbe final payment of $80,000 on the Iron
group mine near Kitchener, B. C. The
properties, which include 15 claims,
were bonded last April with a cash payment of $17,000. A lode of 'hematite,
carrying 70 per cent Iron, runs through
the group. The lode ls from 50 to 200
feet wide.
J. J. Campl"... ore buyer of the Hall
Mines smeltei at Nelson, has secured a
contract for about 3,000 tons of second
class ore on tbe dumps at the Arlington.
It will be shipped at once at the rate
of 1,000 tone a month, or two cars a
day. About ten teams will be engaged
In the hauling. Special rates bave been
secured for smelting, as the ore is much
desired by smelter;.
'Boring for coal on Hamilton hill, six
miles south of Nicola lake ls being prosecuted vigorously and a depth of 80 feet
has already been obtained. Por tbe
flrst 50 feet the bore was ln coal, passing through the measure on Its dip. It
is expected that several seams will be
encountered before the drill is down
tOO feet. The land, consisting of several thousand acres, le owned by a Vancouver syndicate, at the head of which
la Captain Tatlow, M. L. A.
High values were received by Manager Warner of the Wonderful ln the Slocan from 38 tons of ore shipped to the
Hall minea amelter at Nelson. One lot
of 386 sacks of high grade ore gave
128.6 ounces In silver and 54 per cent
In lead. The total value was $2,007.86.
Another lot of 232 sacks of second class
ore went 98.7 ounces In sliver and 25
per oent In lead. It gave total value of
$620.57. The average value of the shipment was a little more than $80 a ton.
'At Ymlr an Important consolidation
has Just taken place whloh It Is hoped
will bave the effect of causing renewed
activity In the Nelson vicinity. The
Athabaaca Oold Mine, Ltd., and tbe
Venua Oold Mining company are combining under tbe name of the Athabaaca
Consolidated company, with head offices
at Ontario. The Athabasca la equipped
with a stamp mill and cyanide plant
which nave for eome months been practically Idle In consequence of the difficulty experienced in supplying sufficient
Pinch A Campbell have secured a half
Interest ln the Keystone group near
Nelson, and the final payments on tbe
claims were made the flrst of the present week by R. Ewart and Al Davenport
of Spokane. The claims Included ln
the purchase are tbe Keystone Praction,
situated at tbe bead of Whisky creek,
about two miles east of the north fork
of Salmon liver, and about a mile east
of the Arlington mine. The consideration for this claim was $15,300 cash.
Tbe other transfer was of the Cathie
and Tenbroek claims, adjoining the
Keystone Praction, and $5,000 was paid
for the two properties. The three claims
will form the Keystone group, and the
two Spokane companies now Interested
in tbe claims will develop the ledges
now opened up as rapidly aa possible.
Contracts have beeh let for the construction of two two-story buildings at
the California mine at Republic, which
will be used as bunk and boarding
The face of the Wauconda tunnel at
Republic Is still in good ore. The foundation of the oompressor plant ls laid,
and within the present week the building will be np.
Tbe American Flag company has received word that an ore body had been
opened up on the Hornet mining claim
in the Slate Creek mining district ln
Cascade range, showing free gold. The
ore la similar to that in the Flag mine.
j The long tunnel on the Springfield,
one of the copper companies on Stevens
peak, Idaho, cut the ledge several days
ago, and at last reports they had crosscut ledge between flve and six feet,
finding ore all the way. An assay was
I was made on some of It, which was
■brought down, showing total values of
$22.62 in gold, silver and copper, principally the latter. ,
Wallace, Idaho, Aug. 17.—-The shipments of the'Mammoth mine from mine
to mill for the week ending last Saturday were 1050 tons, an Increase of 100
tons over the previous week, bringing
the total shipments for the year up to
62,278 tons, and the shipments of ore
by the Standard Mining company were
13192 tons, a slight lo s from the week
'before. The total for the year to date
Is 99,629 tons.
I It ls currently reported that a force
of men will soon be put to work on the
Old Germany mine, near Cresaw, to
continue for the next six or eight
months at least. The Old Germany ls
located south of town and is among the
ibest properties in the camp. Considerable work was done last winter and tbe
showings are good.
There is now considerable activity ln
the Slate Creek mining district. News
bos been received from the Oold Standard that the force of men working last
week on the Tripod, one of the Gold
Standard group, bad encountered a
ledge of high grade ore, carrying free
gold and running about fihreo feet In
width. On the Mammoth -mine, adjoining the Gold Standard, work Is going
on steadily. Expert Ballard has been
sent to the mine to see what kind of a
mill ls most suited for the treatment of
the Mammoth ore. As soon as his report ls received a mill is to be erected
on the property.        ,
R. T. Dabney and D. C. Corbin have
bought a half interest in 2,700 acres of
oil land In western Washington. Mr.
Dabney and Professor Aughey 'have
just returned from inspecting and examining the property. They brought
back with them about 300 pounds of
sand rock, secured from the property,
which is strongly impregnated with petroleum and which has the appearance
of being a high grade of illuminating
oil. Professor Aughey will make a
thorough test of the rock to ascertain
the grade of oil.
The Allls-Chalmers company bas decided to locate its agency for the entire
northwest In Spokane. There was stiff
competition from firms In Butte, Portland and San Francisco, which wanted
■to get the agency. The new concern decided that Spokane is the center for the
mining Industry of the whole northwest,'however, and will have Its agency
in thst city. The big Butte mines ln
future must come to this city to get
mining machinery from the consolidated concerns. Spokane may not be the
hub of the universe, but it is the center
of a great mining country.
L. J. McAtee, who has returned to
Spokane from a trip to the Buffalo
Hump country, sayu tbat there Is a
much better feeling noticeable in tbe
"Those who bave watched the camp
carefully have more faith than ever In
its future," he said. 'The Sweeny syndicate, owning the Big Buffalo, Is going steadily ahead with development
Thirty men have been at work on the
Big Buffalo since the first of the month.
That Is In addition to the mlU crew.
'The Old Vesuvius mill commenced
crushing Big Buffalo ore on August 5
and ie 'handling about 30 tons a day,
chiefly from the 60 foot level. It Is understood that the ore will average $10
ln free gold, caught on the plates, besides yielding half a ton of concentrates
per day.
"The mill at the Jumbo began crushing ore on Monday. Frank Brown and
his associates have a magnificent gold
property. The old ore shoot has been
developed for a distance of 200 feet and
bas a width In the face of the drift of
12 feet going $16 a ton.
"The Wise Boy, owned by Moore ft
Kelly, is showing up favorably, A crosscut tunnel taps the ledge at 75 feet
depth. At this point the ledge has a
width of 12 feet, 18 Inches of which will
average $300 a ton. Owing to the San
Francisco strike a mill can not be put
In this season, but will continue development throughout the winter.
"Hawley ft Flint are still sinking In
the high grade ore they got recently.
Average samples from the bottom of
tbe shaft gave $480 and $520 in gold.
Mr. Hawley says they will put a 10
stamp mill on the property this fall If
they can get tbe machinery In before
the roads get bad.

Number or Llvei Saved-Sixty Fnioni
aboard-Several Wall Known People
Among Ihe Lout.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 19.—The steamer Islander, the crack passenger steamer of the Alaskan route, operated by
the Canadian Pacific Navigation company of this city, struck an iceberg off
Douglas Island at 2 a. m. on the morning of Thursday last and went to the
'bottom, carrying 55 to 60 souls, Including passengers and members of the
crew. Some o f the survivors arrived
this evening toy the steamer Queen,
They report that as the Islander went
down her boilers exploded, causing the
death of many who might have escaped. Captain Foote was on the bridge
when the vessel struck and stayed
there, going down with his steamer.
The Islander was on her way from
'Skagway to Victoria.
Among the passengers lost on the
Islander were Mrs. Ross, wife of Governor James A. Ross of the Yukon territory, her. child and niece; Dr. John
Duncan of this city. W. O. Preston and
bride ot Seattle, F. Mills, Mrs. J. C.
'Henderson, W. H. Keating and two sons
of this city and Los Angeles, Cal., J. V.
Douglas of Vancouver, Mrs. Phillips
and child of Seattle. Mrs. Bell and Mrs.
Captain Nickerson, Mrs. W. Smith, Vancouver; J. A. Blethen, Vancouver; Mrs.
J. L. Wilcox, Seattle.
The members of the crew lost are
Captain Foote, George Allen, third engineer; Horace Smith, second steward;
S. J. Pitts, cook; two Chinese; Buck-
holder and Burte, oilers; two firemen,
one coal passer, Night Saloon Watchman Kendall, Joe Beard, second pantryman; two waiters, G. Miller, the
barber; N. L. Law, M. P. Jock, Porter
and Moran, coal passers.
P. G. HInde-Bowker, late manager of
the British American corporation of
London, who was a passenger, says:
"My first intimation of an accident
was the running of passengers on deck
which woke me up. I was ln a cabin
with Mr. Muchtln. I got up, looked out
of the cabin and saw the steamer sinking at the bow. I woke my partner up
and we dressed. By this time she was
still lower in the water. By the time
I got out of the cabin the water was
about level with the smoking room
floor. I went on the upper deck, followed by my partner; I saw the boats
were gone; I went to the side, but at
this time only the stern was out of water. I saw a raft in the water with
eight or ten peoplo on It. I slid down
a rope on to the raft and as soon as t
got on the raft the stern of the. steamer sank and sucked the raft and people
down. We were some time under water, tout I held on and when the raft
came up only two of us were left. We
hailed two men who were swimming
and got them aboard, also a Chinaman.
By this time the steamer had sunk out
of eight Many people hung onto the
raft at different times, but it was not
air tight and we had much difficulty
keeping afloat. We were turned over
once by others climbing on, tout generally managed to right ourselves.
"The scene was heartrending. The
boats were scattered and overcrowded
and people were adrift begging, pleading and crying for help. We gathered
lumber and made our raft float We
were picked up by one of the boats returning from shore. I can not speak
too highly of the ofllcers and crew."
There was $275,000 ln gold on the
steamer, $100,000 of which was carried
by passengers. H. H. Part, who has
spent 15 years in the Klondike, lost
$35,000 in dust
There was a heavy fog at the time
and Pilot Le Blanc was on the bridge.
Captain Foote was at lunch. When he
heard the crash, he ran on deck and
went down with the ship. It Is said,
however, that he reached a raft, but
when he saw the extent of the damage
he jumped overboard. No accurate list
of the dead will be available until the
arrival of the purser on the steamer
Furrallon tomorrow.
George McL. Brown, agent of thc
Canadian Pacific, after Interviewing
the passengers who returned, said:
"The purser ls remaining In the
north attending to the forwarding of
passengers. It is said he gave a partial
list of those lost, but It Is thought It la
below the figures mentioned. It ls my
opinion that the loss of life will not
exceed 20."
"Word of the disaster reached Tread-
well at 8:25 a. m. by a party of passengers headed toy an engineer, who walked up the beach a distance of 25 miles
to appeal to the city for help. The
Treadwell steamers Lucy and Jennlker
end the Juneau steamer Flossie promptly responded.        i
'The Flossie arrived from the scene
of wreck at 12 o'clock with her flag at
half roast and six dead bodies on board,
and the nurvlvlng passengers. The description of the disaster by tho survivors ls heartrending. They say that the
Islander struck an Iceberg and so severe was the shock that every door was
jammed fast ln the staterooms and the
111 fated passengers, numbering 107, and
tbe crew of 71, were forced to break
through the windows to reach the deck.
"Steward Simpson lost 10 ln hie department, and his description of the
wreck Is clearly given. He was awakened tby the shock and could not get
out of his stall-room until he broke out
of the window. He reached the bridge,
where the pilot, Lablonde, was on
watch, and, with the mate ordered out
the life boats. The vessel was then
taking water fast and the chief engi
neer reported the pumps unable to. take
oars of the water. He also went below
with an ax, broke down the lowar stateroom doors and atayed at this work
! until the water forced him to go on the
uppet deck.
"By this time the ship's boats were
loaded and had got away and while the
officers were getting out the lost life
raft Captain Foote called to all hands
to clear the ehlp, ".a she was about to
go down. This was the captain's laat
order, as at the moment the ship sunk
and the captain, leaping clear of the
wreck, waa picked up by a life boat
which In some manner was overturned.
The day was very misty, and all hands
were made to shift for themselves!

l'relwht    Train    Was    Committed    by
Ashland, Ore., Aug. 10.—An explosion
of dynamite wliieli occurred nt tunnel No.
7, six and a half miles north of Glendale,
demolished an entire freight train on the
Southern Pacific, An extra train, composed of 80 cars with three engines, wus
just emerging from Tunnel No. 7, which
is a short -one on a sharp curve in the
trade about 100 feet long, when the train
parted, the air hose breaking and tlie sudden jar causing tlie dynamite in the two
rear cars to explode. The entire train was
destroyed, except the engine and that was
injured imme\tliat.. There were 10 cars
of melons, two of powder, two of fruit
and the remainder miscellaneous. The explosion was felt for miles around the sur-
roundlng country.
A car tilled with acid took tire and tlwl
Raines spread to the dry brush and timber, causing a tierce conflagration. Coiv
creek, which runs along the side of the
track at this point, was tilled with debris
a ml burning wreckage. The buildings of
the Victory mine, half u mile di-t.ini, were
badly shattered, and iu a house i mile
distant from the scene, a sick woman was
thrown from her bed by the fores of the
shock, her arm and shoulder being bndly
dislocated in tlie fall.
Train   C'rrw   Karnprtl,
The train crew miraculously SSOSpod
with only a few bruises and scratches. A
number of tramps, who weie riding in a
half cloned car, it is believed, asoaped, but
until the debris is cleared the loss of life
can not be known. ,
At least 11 ears were blown to atoms,
and can uot be accounted for, even their
trucks lieing missing. Wrecking crews
have been sent to the scene of the disaster
ami -isi men arc now clearing the track.
The tunnel, fortunately, appears to be uninjured, though the track and roadbed are
torn for a great distance.

could only have been Great Britain. Indeed, the reference is regarded as being so
direct as to be impolite. The unglophobe

B. S. S. has been
before the public
for many years;
from a small bpfi.i-
uing, it has steadily
worked its way to
the front, and is now known in every city, town and hamlet in the country. Its
Itaunchest friends nre those who have known it longest and have witnessed its
wonderful curative powers in their own families or among their friends and
acquaintances. Grateful patients in all parts of the country tell of their restoration
to health und happiness, und the testimony of these is the highest evidence of the
medicine's worth. S. S. S. is more popular today than ever in its history—no
other remedy stands so high, has ever given such perfect satisfaction or is so
reliable in the cure of Cancer, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Contagious Blood Poison,
Scrofula, Eczemn, Psoriasis, Salt Rheum, Acne, or any disease that originates in
thc blood. Being strictly a vegetable preparation, you will find it agrees with you
much better than n drug store concoction or any of the widely advertised potash
and mercury remedies, which affect the bones, muscles ami stomach, causing
Rheumatism or Dyspepsia. If you

TTg*lgm S. S* S* f"r "° sooner does it get into the circulation than tbe
* appetite increases; you grow stronger, and gradually
but surely it drives out the poisons nnd restores the blood to a healthy condition.
If there is a sore or ulcer on the body, it begins to heal around the edges, the discharge finally ceases and the place gets well; musculnr and bone pains vanish, nud
the skin is relieved of all itching, irritating eruptions. Nervous, run down and
anaemic people will find S. S. S. just the medicine they need, for blood poverty
and illy noui ished nerves nre responsible for their condition. Por old people and
children S. S. S. has no equal; being free from all minerals, it docs not nauseate
or have any injurious effect whatever, and keeps thc blood in good condition, thua
fortifying against disease, Experience teuches whut i9 good and what is not good;
this applies particularly to medicine, and S. S. S., a remedy that has retained the
confidence of the people for nearly 50 years, must have incrit~iT CURBS, is the
