Between  two and three o'clock, Officer Lawder,  who was on duty on Copper street, discovered a fire under Henton's barber  shop, in the Pacific block and at once  turned in the alarm. The volunteer  fire department was soon on the  ground, and two streams commenced  playing on the flames. It was found  impossible to save the Pacific hotel,  and the efforts of the birgade were  directed to save: the buildings in the  vicinity. A hose was connected with  the Silver street hydrant, and. two  streams were directed to the rear of the  buildings.-'.' In a.'. short time the  Windsor hotel on the south, and.  Hallett's & Shaw.'s law office on the  north of the Pacific were in flames.  The department did good work on  the Windsor, saving the shell of. the  building,-although the inside work and  furniture were completely destroyed,  or so badly damag-ed that, they are  valueless. Hallett & Shaw's building  and contents were so badly damaged  that the loss wiirbe a total one. .-..,  '������ The heaviest loosers by:the fire.will  be Madden. & Dallas of the, Pacific.  Their building-,and contents cost about;  $14,000, insured .for $4,900. .The  Windsor hotel will -be a partial loss.'  Insured for $3,500; value of .building  and contents about$15,000. ...The..building" is; owned by ,.'F... S... Barnard of  Victoria, and leased by W. E. Weeks, i  Henton's barber shop and contents,  valued 'at about $1,200; insured for  $500. Hallett & Shaw's loss will be  about $2,000; insured for $750; Henry  Sauve; no insurance, loss about $200,  Greenwood Trading- company, loss by  damage to goods about $200.  The fire is supposed to have been  the work of an incendiary. An investigation was held in the court house  on Thursday afternoon before Police  Magistrate Hallett, and considerable  evidence taken, but as part of the  evidence was taken with closed doors,  the result cannot be made known.  NOTES.  Captain Hallett of the fire department, acted as chief, in the absence of  Chief Nelson, and did excellent work,  as also did Wiison and McKenzie. In  fact all the members of the department  did excellent work.  The department need metal nozzles  d.nd canvas hose, and will make application  at the next meeting- of city  poses.    In   future   it   will  be kept full,J  with   the  overflow  from   the  tank in-  o ���  stead of from the feeder.   ���  An extra nig-ht-watchman has been  put on by the mayor, and a strict  watch will be kept on all parts of the  city. Persons who have been hanging  around and picking- up odds and ends  will do well to take warning- and leave  town.  - ��� ��� - ��� ^'  There were the usual humorous incidents connected with the fire. A well  known young mining engineer of the  city suddenly became possessed.of an  idea and acted upon it. He saw the  sug-ar bowls in the dining-room of the  Pacific, and with laudable presence of  mind threw them out of the window.  The .bowls were saved. He carried" a  number of chairs out of the hotel and  deposited them safely on Greenwood  street. ./���'.���.������'���. ���'<.'.' ������.���  A- prominent insurance ;man; con-,  eluded that two men were too many on  one nozzle, so tackled the job alone.  It took six men to resuce the insurance agent. The nozzle didn't need  rescuing-.  ;  ���Madden & Dallas will commence rebuilding-at once. For the present they  are in temporary quarters in the Barrett block. : Hallett ��S?Shaw will build.  Henry Sauve had opened out in his old  premises'Thursday .'i evening-; ��������� Mr.  Weeks; of the Windsor, was opened for  business a-few hours'after the fire, but  it will be some time before the upper  portion of the building^ is ready for  occupation. ��� ,-,     . ;'"  CITY COUNCIL.

The ore is iron magnetite  and copper. Mr. W. T. Smith is  authority for the statement that it is  the largest discovery made in the district. ...���'������-  Frank Greenwood and Ned Bennett,  returned Wednesday from West Copper  camp, where they had been doing  work on the Red Warrior group for the  past two months. The surface showing on the property is about 40 feet in  width. A shaft has been sunk on the  ore to a depth of 28 feet and it is the  intention to sink to the SO-foot level  and then drift and crosscut. The ore  is a hematite iron, giving- fair g-old  and copper values.  Geo. Cook is at present doing development   work   on   the  Jim  in Camp McKinney   No.    2,   south   of   Wellington  I camp.    The showing on the property is  one of the larg-est in the district.    The  ledge  is 200  feet  wide on the surface  and has been stripped, at intervals, for  j a  distance  of 500   feet.    The work so  1 far  consists  of   surface  crosscutting.  j Values are coppei-gold,  running-  from  i $13 to S28.    Adjoining the Jim and on  | the same ledg-e are   the Lone Star and  , Union.    A 25-foot shaft has been sunk  on   the   Lone   Star,   and   four assessments done on the Union.     Very little  ; is known about this camp among min-  ' ing men, but many of the  claims  g-ive  promise   of   being   equal   in   size and  <-l^ , values  to the big properties in Green-  Copper St,     .���'V     Greenwood, wood camp.

Hickey, who manages a Slocan  mine named the Ivanhoe, says that had  it not been for the eight-hour law he  would now be working eighty men on  on the Ivanhoe instead of eight. Had  it not been for the liberal mining laws  of British Columbia, P. J. Hickey  would probably be a mucker down in  some mine in Colorado.���Nelson Tribune.  Grand Forks Miner: "Certain public  men belong to the porcine variety. Sir  Charles Tupper wants to exclude aliens  from tiie Yukon gold fields." The  United States excludes aliens from all  her fields, therefore Americans must  all be of the porcine variety. The  editor of the Miner has perhaps heard  the old saying about people living in  glass houses.  Hon. Joseph Martin, for he is stil-  an honorable, makes a fair proposition.  He is willing to test his strength in  this constituency against either the  Hon. F. L,. Carter-Cotton, Mr. C. E.  Tistlale, M. P. P., or both. In bur  judgement Mr. Martin would beatthem  so badly that neither of them would  know their names after election day.  Will they accept Mr. Martin's challenge and take chances ? He, like a  knight of old, has thrown down the  gauge; but it will never be taken up.  Cotton fears the popular vote, and  Tisdale���-well, he is satisfied as things  go.���Vancouver World.  . The government caucus;; met on  Wednesday last,Wells; M. P. P.,'Green,  M. P. P., Martin, M. P. P., went  cheerfully down to the capital .to take  their parts like little men. But-Kellie,  M. P. P., did hot go. He could ,not go.  He had important business with a.man  which prevented him from going. So  while every other government constituency in Kootenay was. represented  at the caucus; Kellie was pottering-  about Front street and doing the "working man'' act round the Central an per  usual. Do not blame Kellie. If he had  gone he might have to make up his  mind whether to pin his political faith  to Cotton or nail the Martin black flag  to his political mast. And how could  he be expected to doieither while-it is  still so��� dreadfully uncertain; which is  going to come out on.top. Kellie is.no  mind reader. Do not judge Kellie too  harshly.���Revelstoke Herald.  . There is nothing new to state in connection with the Provincial situation  except that Premier Semlin has accepted the resignation of the Attorney-  General and that His Hon. the L<ieu  tenent-Governor's return is awaited  with much anxiety. Who the sttcces-.  sor of Mr. Martin is to be is as yet: an  unsolved problem, though we know  that some gentlemen whose names are  mentioned have about as much idea of  becoming eunuchs in the Sultan's  most favored harem. The fact is, and  a very short time will prove it, that  the Government is in a hole out of  which it cannot crawl, and its political  death will ensue shortly. When Mr.  Cotton appears before the electorate of  this city he will have visions of Don-  nybrook Fair and will imagine that  pandemonium has been let loose.  Meantime, he hangs on to his salary  and if he gets his hands on the loan it  is possible that he may be in a position to tell his constituents to go to  that nebulous country where wicked  and unreasonable people are generally  supposed to get all that is coming to  them.    Vancouver World.  The meteoric ascent and descent, in  British  Columbia,  of the  "Man from  Manitoba," might well furnish a theme  for a politico-comedy or  tradgedy, according to one's  literary bent, or for  profitable moralizing; biit we shall let  the temptation  pass���merely  remarking that Hon. Joseph Martin has  been  the   author   of   his   swift   and tragic  political downfall.   Though not by any  means   warmly   welcomed,  especially  after  so short a  residence, into   the  arena  of  politics  in  the Pacific province,     circumstances     phenomenally  favored Mr.  Martin,  he was accepted  in good faith by the party with   which  he identified himself, and   that  party,  both in the legislature and the country,  was prepared to give him a fair show.  Had he realized his position, and governed his conduct,  politically and personally, accordingly, there would have  been   no   honorable   public   eminence  barred   to  him   in the province; for he  has   the  abilities,   and   the fie'.d of opportunity was open before htm.    But a  madness,  as  of  those  whom the gods  would destroy,  apparently,  possessed  him,   and  his   fall,   politically, in this  province, has been   swift���and irreparable.���Columbian.  and the Nelson Miner for the true  light they have thrown on . the possibilities of mineral properties in that  province.  These journals and the mine-owners  with whom they sympathize have given  a black eye to the British Columbia  "propositions," which have tempted  the speculative enthusiasm of the eastern investor.  British Columbia journals and British Columbia mine-owners must know  their own business, and their actions  indicate that they have set an unduly  high value on the mines, which are  working so close to the margin that a  difference of two hours a day means  the difference between profit and loss.  British Columbia mine-owners have  been dealing with the eastern investor  as if their properties were amazingly  rich. Some or these mine-owners give  the lie to their own pretences by professing that their mines will not pay  on an eight-hour basis. These mine-  owners have a good case against the  eight-hour law. They should be freed  from the restrictions of that statute,,  and at the same time the eastern.investor: .-ihoiild allow able .and patriotic  journals like the Vancouver World and  Nelsfni Miner to open his eyes to the  truth that he is asked toipay too much  for slock in ,.British Columbia properties which are capitalized'for one^ tw��  or time ''million dollars, and are yet  so poor tliat they can be put' upon: the  road to rii'ii- by two hours' difference  in the day's work of each miner.  When it is a question of selling stock  a' certain class of British . Columbia  journals talk as if every property in  the province were worth millions, and  when��it is a question of paying wages  these same papers talk as if there was  not a property in British' Columbia  which would not oe pushed into bankruptcy by a decrease in the length of  the working day, and such a decrease  does not necessarily imply a decrease  in the working power of each miner.���  Toronto Telegram.(  Summer Glasses  AND  Summer i Prices.

ANOTHER BIG STRIKE.  Made on  Copper Creek Up the Main  Kettle  River.  W.  S.   Keith,   M.  E-,  has  returned  from a trip up the Main   Kettle river.  During  his  absence Mr. Keith visited  the  Lottie F., upon which a'big- strike  has recently been   made.    The Lottie  F.   is   located    on    Copper "'��� creek,   a  tributary   of   the   main   river,   which  empties  about  25 miles above Canyon  creek.   The Lottie F. was located by  Feeney and  Ferney,   two   tenderfeet,  who were making- their first   prospecting-  trip.    Tnere  is an enormous body  of ore but  sufficient development work  has   not  been  done  to  determine  its  character.    It is known; however, that  rich bornite is found everywhere for a  distance of 300 feet..   An, 8-foot shaft  has been sunk and from the bottom of  this shaft samples have been   taken  that run 40 per cent, copper  and $3 in  g-old. The ore which Mr. Keith broug-ht  down from the claim is., similar in appearance to  the King-   Solomon   ore.  Mr.   Keith ^also  reports  that he met  Patsy Clark's expert going- up to examine   the   Silver  Dollar,   Peterson's  Canyon   creek   property.     Barbarian  Brown's experts are up  Beaver creek'  examining-  the property , upon  which  the recent strike was made.  OUR MILL OUTSIDE MILLS.  Grinds B.C. wheat.

Ltd,  I  ^sransesKsssiBa^^  Is Mining-A Gamble.  , If this question ' can be properly  answered in the affirmative, where  will the line be drawn between a game  " of chance and a legitimate business?  But mining, as the word is defined, is  not gambling, nor is a miner a  gambler. His occupation is a legitimate one, divested of that hazard, as  hazard is defined, which when indulged in destroys all the finer instincts  and sensibilities of man, and . reduces  him to the level of! inferior animals.  Mining is .shorn of these distructive  attributes. It is as harmless to the  mentality of a man as is merchandising or banking or the rearing of  children. The element of hazard is  eliminated from it.  The gambler. is one who games or  plays for money or other stakes. The  gambler's gain is another man's loss,  , his loss is another's gain. The turn of  a card or of a wheel changes ��� the  ownership of money. The element of  chance enters wholly in the change.  Industry, perseverance, intelligently  directed, labor and knowledge of the  (use of mining appliances determine the  fortune .of the miner. If gold be in his  ground he makes; if he loses he simply  loses what he has taken from the earth  and his labor. There is no gamble  .about it. He has only failed in a  legitimate business.  But reason asone may and say what  he will, the thoughtless will so often  repeat the worn-out expression that  ���'Mining is a gamble" that the other  thoughtless will accept it as a truism  and adopt it as a rule of action and  gamble away their substance and their  brains. That is about all the harm  the misused words can do. Levelheaded men will follow the occupation  of mining, and gamblers will court the  presence of the tiger, and four aces,  without the lines of either converging  to the same point or touching each  other. There is no-affinity or community of interest between the miner  and gambler. They work on different  layouts.���Western Mining World.  g�� *$"' *^' '& *&, "i* '$f *$"' "i* *i* ,^-"4*,-*^* *���&"' "^ *$"' -jf*' *^* 'si"' "S* '&"w"w "*"' *tP 'w^Z  "5*     '  ' '..'���_The Best Beer in Town is Made by The.....   *s*  y i  V     ,   -HARTINGER '���  f  -ropriclors.  er mi t  PATERNIZE HOME INDUSTRY.  =*  *  LIMITED.

It is the intention to use a  lighter steel from Cascade on, than 73-  pound rail laid in the mountains. None  of the lighter weight rails, are now on  hand.     ���  All the stringers for the bridges  come from the coast, and Supt. Mar-  pole is finding it difficult to get rolling  stock to handle them. Some 30 carloads are yet required, but special  efforts are being made to get in the 10  cars required for the 1,600-foot bridge  over the Kettle river at Cascade.  It will thus be noted that as soon as  the track reaches Cascade, and is accepted by the C. P. R., this city,will be  passenger and freight headquarters  for some time to come.���Cascade Rer  cord.,  Established 1862.  FURNITURE FOR SALE.  Take it Over to Cascade.  The C. P. R. will take oyer the completed portion of the new line as soon  as the track is laid into Cascade," said  Supt. Jack Stewart, of Mann, Foley  Bros. & Larson, to a Record representative this morning. While this was  expected, the definite announcement  means a great deal to Cascade, and to  the entire Boundary district, which  has been so long waiting for railway  transportation.  Mr. Stewart returned this morning  from a few days' rest at Halcyon Hot  Springs, and came in over the railway,  which is now a trifle over three miles  from Cascade. The rails will be over  Sutherland creek Monday, and by next  Saturday will doubtless reach Kettle  river. The pleasant whistle of the  track-laying locomotive is now heard  here daily, and far up the long grade  workmen can be seen.  Dan Brown and his SO men are finishing up leveling the grade east of town,  and in a few days he will begin the  work of widening the grade west of the  city some four or five feet. It is done  to permit the construction of the flume  by the Cascade Water Power company.  Nearly a thousand yards of rock are to  be removed, and this work will probably  be completed before the additional  sidetrack is put in at the station  grounds.  It has been decided not to put in false  work for the span over Kettle river, at  the head of the falls, but to put in the  120-foot span itself, the timbers for  which   are  now   in   the yards at West  ���Bedroom Suite (bedstead with mattress and springs, bureau, washstand,  table, three chairs.)

THE PASSING OF MARTAIN.  Those who are congratulating themselves upon the exit of  Joseph Martin  from   the   arena  of  provincial politics  are  probably   reckonening   without  a  due  appreciation  of   the strength and  tenacity of the man.    That Joe Martin  proved a failure as a leader of a  party  in   power was only  natural when   the  peculiar conditions that  surround   the  politics of the province are considered.  In   this  province  there  are no strong-  party   men   and   the politician"! thinks  more  of his self-respect and his own  personal  feelings  than he does about  the  interests  of  the party with which  he is, for the time  associate.'.    Martin  must be king or  nothing.    He  cannot  and will not  brook  interference 'from'  his associates and'has not   respect   for  the opinions of those.whose advice and  counsel   are  worthy  of consideration.  It   was  only  natural,   therefore,   that  there should be   rebellion   against the  man   and   that   advantage   should   be  taken   of  every   opportunity to secure  hisdownfall.   ,But Martin's weaknesses  are   not   so   discernible    outside    the  ranks.    On   the  platform   aud  in   the  political  field   he   is a power.    He can  play to the  galleries  with good effect.  ���He strongly appeals to the masses and  after all the masses wield the power..  Should Joe Martin resign his seat as  representative of Vancouver and run  again to show his strength, there is  every possibility that he will be reelected. The safest course , for the  government is to steer clear of him  and not give him strength by opposing  him. Joe Martin is a much stronger  man among-, the people who do not  know his peculariiies than among the  members of a political party who are  in a better position to study him.  common school education for every  bo3r and girl in the province need not  be discussed here. Under the present  school law, it is the duty of the government to provide schools where required  and maintain these schools. In Greenwood Mr. Robert Wood generously  built an excellent school building and  gave it for school purpose until a government school could be erected. But  the government took advantage of Mr.  Wood's good nature and delayed the  construction of a school building. At  least $600 was placed in the estimates,  but by this time the city had grown to  such an extent that a $600 building  would be entirely Inadequate to meet  the needs of the children here. Construction was delayed for another year  and $3,000 was voted for a school building. The lands and works department  then called for tenders, according to  plans sent from that department to  this city. The plans were of such a  character that the building when completed would cost a much larger sum  than 5*3,000. Tenders were received  ;tiid submitted to the department.  I\.-itnrally they were all above ��3,000,  and the department states that consequently the school house cannot be  built.  The building- which was used for  school purposes is altogether too small  for the number of children in the city;  it has-been - leased,by Mr. Wood and  even if suitable is no longer available.  Under the circumstances the trustees  have refrained from advertising for a  teacher because there is no place where  he can teach.  It looks as if the hundred children in  the city will enjoy a holiday until such  time as the citizens will: take steps to  force the government into action.  F. J.

Should one mem-  , ber resign, fall ill or leave the city no  municipal business could be transacted  and there would be no municipal machinery to fill the  vacancies outside of  an appeal to the lieutenant-governor in  council.    In view of the fact that $30,-  000 worth of city debentures has been  sold and the money will soon be available for civic improvements, it is of the  highest importance to the city that the  council  should  be   composed of   men  who   are   capable   of   expending, the  money   in  a judicious  manner.    The  scarcity   of   men   around the council  board  is not due to a lack of properly  qualified men in the city, but is the natural outcome of the tactics  that were  introduced by the majority of the council   at   the outset  of their municipal  career. No self-respecting citizen would  sit  at  a council  board to find that he  was without influence, that everything  was cut and dried before the meetings  of  the  council,  and that his voice and  vote was of no avail.  It is safe to say, however, that the  mistakes of the early part of the year  were the result of a lack of knowledge  of the proper conduct of municipal affairs and an absence of those amenities  which public men usually show towards  their opponents and not because of any  desire on the part of those injauthority  to mismanage the affairs of the city.  One of the lessons which experience  teaches is that the public interest is of  greater importance than the glorification of an individual.  The only way that men properly  qualified can be induced to accept seats  in the council is by a relization of the  fact that they must be left free to act  according,to their best judgment and  not at the dictation of any one man or  his supporters. If they were approached upon the grounds that they  were needed to assist in carrying out  the business of the city, and not to  keep aldermanic chairs warm, there is  a strong probability that the vacancies  could soon be filled by good men.

Among- the visitors to Republic this  week were "W. T. Hunter and his  brother, James, the latter being- of the  firm of Hunter Bros., who have large  mercantile houses in Rossland, Grand  Forks and Greenwood, in British Columbia. W. T. Hunter is a merchant  of Wheatland, in the Red River yalley  of North Da'kota, and has made a'great  deal of money there. When here Mr.  Hunter and his brother were on their  return from a trip to Loomis and  Palmer mountain, in .the Okanogan  country, the scene'of: the recent great  strike. W.'-T.' Hunter is one of the  original proprietors of the now famous  Palmer mountain tunnel and is the  ownerof 500,000 shares of stock in the  Palmer Mountain Tunnel company.  John Boyd; who- is now in,charge of  the operations of the Palmer Mountain  Tunnel company, formerly worked in  the store for 'W'.'T." Hunter at" Wheatland, North Dakota.-; He had a decided  aptitttde'-for^ machinery iarid when he  chanced to make a visit, several years  ago, to Loomis, where .Hunter Brothers  had a mercantile establishment, he was  much impressed with the great number  of veins appearing on the slope of  Palmer mountain. It -was then that  he conceived the idea of the Palmer  mountain tunnel. He had a map prepared showing the surface position of  the veins and took that with a reoprt  on the character of ore in the veins,  formation, etc., and went to Spokane  where met ex-Mayor Daniel Drum-  heller and Dr. M. Fred Essig, of Spokane, and Dr. Luce and C. C. May, of  Davenport, Washington. All of these  gentlemen were stockholders in the  Big Bend National bank, at Davenport, one of the most successful financial institutions of the state, and they  all knew something of Palmer mountain mineral prospects for they had interests over there.  The map that Mr. Boyd had made  showed the veins on the side of Palmer  mountain to great advantage and no  one could examine the map without being attracted by the proposition. The  result was the organization of the  Palmer Mountain Tunnel company  with 5,000,000 shares of the par value  of one dollar each.     W, T. Hunter had  come into possession of a number of  claims, from prospectors and others,  who could not otherwise paj' for goods  and supplies they had bought from the  store Mr. Hunter was interesteuin a.t  Loomis. They were put in as assets of  the company along with many other  claims acquired by purchase and otherwise. Boyd and Hunter received 1,-  000,000 shares as their portion of the  5,000,000 shares of capital stock in the  tunnel company and this they divided  equally, making the portion of each  half a million shares.  lilessrs. Drumheller, Essig, Luce and  May found the capital,' and the tunnel,  which  is to be 5,000 feet long when  completed,  was commenced under the  charge of Mr.  Boyd over a'y'ear ago.  It   had  been  driven  about  2,000 feet  when' it cut the great vein about which  os-much has been said of late. , Numerous other veins of  lesser  extent and  carrying ore of not 'so high a grade  were but before the big one "was found  and some of these'afe'expected to yield  good results.j  The  big vein is 42 feet  wide, with 13 feet of. solid quartz, the  remainder of mixed quartz and gangtte.  Mr.'Hunter, in speaking.of.the character of the vein while here-said:  ���; "We have had-mahy sample; assays  made but we have  no assayer of our  own on the" ground. ��� Most of the samples  have '. been   taken   at .the   mine   arid  carried: to" Spokane where they were assayed.    We have  engaged   an  expert  assayer: arid' he will' b'e'in^Lbbmis all  the time so he can not only sample the  big vein carefully from day to day as  we open it up by drifts, but other veins  as well.    We have satisfied ourselves  that we have opened a very fine body  of ore.-  The 13 feet of clean quaftz'will}  probably average: close to $100 ��� atori irr  gold.    The remainder of the vein will  run much lower but it is all rich enough  to work."  What Mr. Hunter says is fully con-  firriiatory of the statement made by ex-  Mayor Drumhelier on his return to  Spokane from his visit to Palmer  mountain. The chances are that the  holdings of Messrs;- Boyd- arid Hunter-  in' the tunnel company will'yield them  .'both a.; great" deal of money. The  stock can not be had on. the market  and probably could not be purchased  in any. considerable qua'ntity-Jor. less  than one dollar a share.���Republic  Miner.

To Prosecute Development on Four Christian  Lake Properties.  This week Frank E. Starkey, D. C.  Beach and Jerry Spellmain, owners of  the Victoria group of gold-copper  mineral claims on Christina lake, held  a meeting at Rossland, and signed incorporation papers. The new corporation is styled the Victoria Gold and  Copper Mining company, limited, and  has a capital of $1,000,000 in one dollar  shares. Of this amount.50,000 shares  will be placed in the treasury at 10  cents, a good part of which is. already  spoken for. The new company will be  a British Columbia concern, and the  head office is to be located at English  Point, on the lake. Mr. Beach, who  returned from Rossland Thursday, has  already gone to the. claims and begun  the work of getting the office ready.  The property of the company consists of four full sized claims, the Victoria, Evening' Star, Copper Wonder  and Copper Mountain, in a solid block,  and they extend to the lake shore. The  track of the new railway line is already  laid across the property, so.that immediate and cheap transportation is  assured as Soon as the company is  ready to ship, which it is not believed  will be long.  Thus far most of the development  work has been done on the Victoria,  which has a 30-foot ledge of sulphide  ore, assaying $27, $29 and $36, respectively. A Record representative recently visited and inspected the property. Work has already been started  on a tunnel to tap the ledge at a depth  of 100 feet, and Mr. Beach will take a  contract to drive this in for 100 feet or  more, working night and day. As Mr.  Starkey has been very successful in  his mining operations, and is a careful,  conservative man, all; the capital  needed will be readily obtained. Mr.  Beach says that he can dispose of $1,-  000 worth of stock just to the few who  have seen the property and noted the  magnificent showing.-Cascade Record.  A Safe Sort of Investment.  A dividend-paying property sometimes reaches an enormous value, and  this is especially the case when it is  known to have reserves of ore that will  last for many years. Take the case of  the Homestake Mining company as one  in point. The stockholders at a recent  meeting, held in San Francisco, voted  to increase the capital stock from $12,-  500,000 to $21,000,000. Up to May of  this year the Homestake Mining company had paid dividends to the extent  of $7,493,750. The property of the  Homestake company is located in South  Dakota and is what is known as a low  grade, free milling proposition. There  is an immense body of ore, and though  it has been operated almost continuously since 1876, the shareholders, as  is evidenced by their action in increasing the capital stock, consider it to be  more valuable than ever. The former  capital stock of the company consisted  of 125,000 shares of. a par value of $100  each, and now it consists of 210,000  shares of a par value of $100 each. The  stock is not quoted at its full par value  in the New York stock exchange, and  fluctuated during the present month  from S60 to $75 per share. There are  but few sales in it, as it is held by  those who own it as an investment, as  it pays dividends continuously.  The  history of this celebrated mine  is certain to be duplicated by  some  of  the leading dividend payers of this  section, and this will especially be the  case with those properties that have  large ore bodies. In cases where the ore  is of higher grade than that of the  Homestake the dividends will be  greater. An investment in the shares  of a mine like the Homestake is as certain to yield a profit as anything human can be. It is known to a certainty  how much the ore will yield per ton,  how-much it will cost to mine and mill  it, the quantity of ore there is in-sight,  and it is ascertainable to within a  short time how long it will take to  work the property to a profitable depth.  With this data it is possible to figure  out when the property will cease to pay  dividends, and within a reasonable degree of accuracy how much the dividends will be. Notwithstanding this  fact, people will be'heard frequently to  say that all mining is a gamble. It is  a gamble under certain conditions, but  under some circumstances it is as safe  as running an old and. well-established  business in the mercantile line in an  ancient city. The Homestake is a mining proposition of the latter kind.���  Rossland Miner.  Chinese in Mines,  A cablegram has been received from  London to the effect that the appeal in  the case of Bryden vs. the Union Colliery company has been granted. Until the particulars of the judgment are  made known comment on this decision  will be somewhat difficult.  But taking the bare statements contained in the cablegram that decision  is a heavy blow to the interests of  labor in this province. Like so many  other British Columbia questions, this  is one upon which the privy council  could not have that fulness of knowledge which is necessary to understand  thoroughly what it means to the white  workingman to have ignorant, incapable and reckless Chinese working in  the mines with him.  Experience led to the placing of that  prohibition in the Coal Mines Regulation act, and it is too bad that the  privy council, who cannot possibly be  as fully aware of the facts as the legislators were who placed that clause in  the act,should remove a necessary safeguard and expose the lives of our white  workingmen to a terrible danger.  Clause four of the act runs:  "No boy under the age of twelve  years, and no woman or girl of any  age, and no Chinaman, shall be employed in or allowed to be for the purpose of employment in any mine to  which this act applies  below ground."  The newspaper that deliberately advocates allowing Chinamen to work  underground in coal mines is a foe to  the white working man, and is to be  held partly responsible for any evil results that may follow the strange decision of the privy council. We shall  await with considerable interest the  arrival of the full text of the decision.  ���Victoria Times.  MINERAL   ACT,    1896.  Certificate   of   Improvements  NOTICE.

The Josie, in Summit camp, near the  B. C, is being- incorporated by Wol-  ford, Holbrook and Rogers, of Spokane,  and the owners "Cap." Rogers and  Joe Young of this place. The capital-  _. ization of the company is fixed at  $100,000 in 1,000,000 shares of 10 cents  each.  This is one of the best know properties in the camp which has not  already been taken hold of by capital  .and there is every indication that the  prosecution of active development will  -shortly result in placing- the property  on a shipping basis'.  Considerable work has  already, been  done and a fine body of mineral opened  . up.-...A shaft has been  sunk 90 feet on  a 4)��-foot ledg-e of copper sulphides in  ' in quartz and spar g iving-  high assays,  in ,both>gold and copper.  '-'When- development was  first, com-  .-mericed ,on. the   property   .about   two  years ago a streak of native copper  '���was opened up  which . attracted, considerable attention    at the  time,  but  soon dipped away from  the shaft.     It  is the intention  to  sink  the shaft 20  feet deeper and then cross-cut for this  streak which   should    have    attained  considerable proportions, by this time  .if it has increased  in  size in accord-  'ance with'the ore body.  The properties to be owned and  operated by the company are the Josie  and Josie fraction, vabout 85 acres in  all, both of whidh have good showings,  although the:later:has been very, little  worked as yet.

The Spokane Industrial Exposition  is a new name which' Spokane has  chosen for her annual fruit fair. This  name implies a fair of more importance, and it is the intention of the  Spokane people to make this year a  general, exposition. It will be held  October 3rd to October 17th, inclusive.  At this fair the exhibits of fruits,  grasses, roots and vegetables will be  as important a feature as ever before.  The counties will compete for the same  liberal prizes, and everything will be'  done to make these departments all  that they have been in the past. In  addition, a great deal more will be  added. Three or four new departments  will be included which will make the  fair a general industrial exposition,  and will cover practically all the resources of the Pacific northwest.  There will be three times as many interesting features for visitors as ever  before, and in addition to the wider  scope which will be given the exhibits,  the entertainment features will be so  strong that what has. been had at  former fairs will not compare with  them.  In addition to the departments  which  have been  had  at former fruit  fairs, this year there .will be a'full;  stock and dairy department, a poultry  show and a department for mining  exhibits and mining machinery.  ��� This is the first attempt Spokane  ever has made to have a stock show,  but Manager Bolster and J. L. Smith,  the superintendent, have gone into it  the right way, arid have put up the,  most, liberal prizes for stock exhibits  which ever have been offered in the  Pacific      northwest. The      same  generosity is shown ,,in the dairy department.- In the poultry department  the same cash prizes and premiums  will be given as:' are given at the  Spokane poultry show in the winter.  -At former fruit fairs attempts - have  been made to make mineral exhibits.  While some of these have been excellent they have tiot been extensive  enough and general enough to represent adequately the mineral resources of the northwest. This year  the mining: men of Spokane have  taken hold of the matter, and they  propose to have as fine a mineral department and mining machinery department as Mr. Smith will have in  his departments.  Van B. DeLashmittt is chairman of  the hustling mining- committee and L.  K. Armstrong is the secretary. They  propose, if possible, to have every  mining camp in the Pacific northwest  represented, and it looks as if they  would succeed. Mining- machinery  will be another department, where all  kinds of mining machinery will be  exhibited in motion throughout the  fair.  For a feature of entertaiement the  Grand. Army band of Canton, O.,  President McKinley's home, known as  the President's band, consisting of 41  pieces, has been secured. It has a  national reputation. In addition there  will be many other high-classed features of entertainment. With the program and the wider scope of the  exposition there certainly will be a  great deal big-ger attendance in  Spokane this year than ever before.  Certificates of Work.  July 26.  Lucy, J. B.

The strawberry festival, in aid of the  Methodist church building fund, Tuesday night, was well patronized. Owing  to bad weather the festival was held  in Barrett's hall instead of the new  church.  Mrs. Foreman and Mrs. Nichols, with  the assistance of local talent, will entertain next week. The specialty by  Mrs. Foreman and Mrs. Nichols will  demonstrate the ease and comfort, of  perfect ��� equilibrium as a result of  physical culture.  The ceremony of laying the corner  stone of the new Baptist church will  take place Saturday evening, Aug. 5, at  5 p. m. Rev. W. T. Stack house, president of the Baptist convention, will deliver an address, and will also preach  morning and evening, Sunday, in Barrett's hall at 11 and 7:30.  Otto Diller and H. R. Elliott have  completed assessment on the Lead  King in Smith's camp, this being the  fourth assessment on the property.  The work done consists of open work  and a 25-foot shaft. The ledge is about  4 feet wide under an iron capping,  carrying good values in copper and  gold.  About forty men are at present at  work on the Greenwood waterworks  system, under Superintendent Edwards. This week the mains are being put in along Water street from the  intersection of Government to Dead-  wood. After the Copper street work is  completed the mains will be laid on  Government street.  M. E. Miller returned Tuesday last  from the Sirnilkameen country, having  gone as far as Princeton, where he  purchased a couple of lots, intending  at an early date opening a branch  business there. A number of rich  strikes were reported about 20 miles  south of Nicola, but Mr. Miller was.  unable to get particulars before he  left. The body of McDermott, who  was drowned in the Sirnilkameen on  May 27, was found at the mouth of  Twenty Mile creek on July 30.  Work   on   the   Greenwood   Masonic  temple has been  commenced under the  superintendence   of    W.   D.   Palmer.  The  building  will be  79x37  feet, two  storys and 14 feet ceilings.    The'lower  portion of the building  will be used as  a  place of business,   while the upper  portion   will  be  divided into  a   main  lodge   room,   50x36   feet,  a reception  room    30x14    feet,    two   ante-rooms,  regajja closts, etc.    The  building will  be  completed   in   about six weeks and  will cost in the neighborhood of $4,500.  W.   H.   Norris,   one  of  the original  owners  and  for  the  past three years  editor   and  publisher  of  the  Midway  Advance,   has  severed  his connection  with   that  paper.    The plant has been  purchasad by Mr. Withall of Montreal,  one of the owners of the Midway town-  site,   and  will   in -future  be edited by  Mr.   E.   Jacobs,   while    the   business  management will be  under the control  of Mr. C. M. Crouse.     Both gentlemen  are well  known   in   the  district.    The  many friends of Mr. Norris will regret  that owing to ill  health  he has been  compelled  to   retire   from   newspaper  work.  The men working on the Snowshoe  in Greenwood camp, struck for higher  pay this week, and. as a consequence  the mine will be temporarily closed  down. Tne wages heretofore paid has  been S3.50 per day for all underground  work. The men working in the shaft  claimed that they were entitled to more  pay than those working in the drift,  and asked for $4 per day. Their request was refused. The matter will  probably be satisfactorily adjusted in  the course of a few days and work con-  tinueJ on the property. While it must  be admitted that a miner should get  higher wages' for working in a wet  shaft than for work done in a comparatively dry drift, it is to be regretted  that the difficulty could not have been  settled without closing down work at  the mine.  '  Phoenix, in Greenwood camp, is at  present experiencing a building boom.  There are in course of erection, a store  for the Huhter-Kendrick company, a  large livery stable for Jos. Hedges;-a  wing to the Hotel Phoenix, buildings  for a drug.store and stationery store, a  restaurant, a cigar store, and several  cottages. Wynkoop & Stephens have  two general stores there���one at the  Old Ironsides and theother at Phoenix,  a half mile distant. They also have  charge of the Ironsides hotel, where  the men working on the Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill board, and the boarding  house at the War Eagle mine, having  to provide meals for 120 men. The  restaurant at the Hotel Phoenix furnishes, meals for about one hundred  men daily. The pay-roll of the camp  for the month of July was over $20,000.  This will be raised to over $100,000  when ore trains commence running  into the camp. The sawmill, a mile  below Phoenix, cannot readily supply  the demand for lumber. So far there  are no lots for sale in Phoenix, but it  is probable that the Ironsides people or  G. W. Rumberger will place a part of  their property on the market shortly.  *G=*6=*(F*!CS*  E ARE OFFERING FOR SALE A NUMBER  of Summer lines which we want to reduce and  clear out previous to our fall goods arriving and of course  are selling them at Rock bottom prices to clear them out  Our connections with the manufacturers and our ex^  tensive experience in these lines give us a decided act'  vantage over our competitors and places us in a position  to sell these goods at prices that are bound to command  you trade and save your money.

There were represented  in person and by proxy 285,001 shares  of the company's capital stock, the  total of which is 1,000,000 shares, of the  par value of $1 each. This representation came from both sides of the international boundary, and that fraternity  of feeling.and unity of interests,that-is  doing so much for the development and  exploitation of the superb natural resources of this mineral region, was  highly in evidence, and gave the proceedings, from first to last, a degree of  enthusiasm most gratifying.  The president of the company, Mr.  Duncan Mcintosh, who was the discoverer and original locator of the  property, and who is and has been  since the organization of the present  company, its president and managing  director, submitted to the shareholders  his annual report of work done and  cost of same, as follows: In shaft No.  4 (double compartment), sinking 222  feet at a cost in labor, $2,408.50, timber,  $234.25, powder, $152.03, candles, $39.28,  fuel, $73.15. Total, $2,207.51. Average  per foot, $13.10. Drifting and cross-  cutting, 595 feet at a cost for labor, $6,-  264.17, timber, $43.90, powder, $525.02,  fuel, $360.59, candles, $112.50, expense,  $275.04. Total, ��7,581.22. Average  cost per foot, $12.74.  He also submitted to the shareholders  the following financial statement  which is a full statement of receipts  and disbursements, from inception of  the present company to date of June  30th, 1899:  LACE CURTAINS FR��M 75C  SUMMER DRESS GOODS...  We are making a run on a doublefold dress material at  15c per yard, worth at least double the amount,  Ladies' Wrappers in all shades and sizes.  Ladies' Hats and Parasols at half price.  Childrens Dresses in sizes 1, 2, 3* 4, and 5 in all  styles and prices.  the previous year, viz: Duacan Mcintosh, president and managing director; W. P. Honey, secretary; and David  H. Beecher, treasurer. Ansel Bates  was appointed assistant secretary.  The president and managing director  was formally tendered a vote of thanks  for the able and economical manner in  which he has conducted the company's  affairs. His recommendations and suggestions, as set forth in his annual report, relating to future work, were  unanimously adopted,and full authority  was given to him to proceed at once  with the same proposed work.  The excellent standing of this company's finances, its surface- plant and  the underground work and development of the mine all strongly portend  that the company will soon be giving  its full share of the general contribution toward feeding the smelter's insatiable fires.  ��otidji:  H@t:  Midway, Kettle River.
