The claims on No. 7 lead in Central camp are five in number���the Falcon,   Rob  Roy,   No.' 7, New York and Norfolk.  The No. 7, the central claim in the group,   and  the  one on  which the   most   development   work   has   been done, was  located by James Atwood in October,   1891.    On   the  claim  is a shaft  150 feet deep, and about 160 feet of  crosscutting  has been done from the shaft.    In 1896 the No. 7 became the  property   of   the  Boundary  Mines Company of New York.  To the southeast of the No. 7 is the Rob Roy, a claim located  in December, 1893 by   Alex   Wallace.    A   shaft  60  feet  in  depth has been sunk on the property, with the result of tapping the No.   7  lead.    The   Rob Roy is still the property of  Mr. Wallace.    The Falcon lies to the  southeast   of the Rob  Roy,   and was located   by   Thos.   Hardy   in 1893.    It   was  bonded a short time ago for $10,000.    Not much development-  work, has been   done  on  this claim, but sufficient  to  prove  that it is good   ground.    To   the   northwest  of  and  nearly  adjoining- the No. 7, is the New York,  located   in   1891, and  the property of John Douglas of Midway.-    On the claim sufficient work has been done to obtain a crown grant.    L/ying  between the No. 7 and the New  York   and  partly  overlapping the latter is the Norfolk, a fractional claim   located in  1896, by E. A. Bielenberg and Thos. McAuley, and sold the  same year to S. S. Fowler, of  Nelson,   B. C,   representing  the British Columbia Gold Fields  Company.    Considerable  prospecting  and development  work   has  been done during  the past winter, under the superintendence of James Atwood  who claims to have the No. 7 lead on the property.    As Mr.  Atwood is very conservative in his views,   and  not liable to  beeome enthusiastic   in   mining matters, it is  not unlikety  his opinion is correct, and the No. 7 runs through  the  Norfolk.    Assays on these claims give high values in both gold  and silver. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ���BBSUSRSBBHB'VffSBHSBinflB  snmsmeaem  GREENWOOD AND   DISTRICT.  R.^McIyeod left on Thursday morning with a force of men to continue  work on the C. O. D. in T^ong-T^ake  camp.  A whim is being put in place on the  Enterprise claim in I/ong-I^ake camp,  and two shifts will be working- on the  claim in a few days.  Among those who attended county  court at Midway on Thursday last  were R. Smailes, W. Powell, I. H. Hal-  lett, A. S.   Black and Andrew  Iyeamy.  D. McDuff, general blacksmith, has  his new shop in Greenwood in running-  order, and is now prepared to fill all  orders in the blacksmithing line. The  new building is 50x24, two storys high.  On Wednesday last, A. ID. Bielen-  berg- transferred his one-half interest  in the Anaconda group of claims in  Deadwood camp, to T. A. Garland, as  agent for eastern capitalists. The  deal was a cash one and the amount  $9,000. .-'..*"'  J. F. Hemenway, superintendent of  the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill, left  for Spokane on Wednesday morning,  where he will meet the directors of the  Old ironsides company and present a  report of the work already done on the  claim, and outline proposed development. Mr. Hemenway will be gone  about a week.  The Bassett freighting- outfit was  sold by the sheriff at Penticton this  ;. week. Mr. Bassett had a large outfit  and it is to be regretted that he lost his  all in trying to accomplish the impossible feat of hauling freight 90 miles  for the same price charged by the  freighters from Marcus for hauling 65  miles. The freighters on the road between Penticton and Greenwood, previous to the time the C. P. K. brought  the Bassett outfit in,had all the3r could  do to make a living at 2 cents per pound.  Had the C. P. R. given two cents and  cut on the railway rates half a cent,  Bassett would have been able to make  both ends meet, but the C.-P.'R. don't  do business that way. They hog it  all. ' '������".  G. B. Taylor, acting city clerk, received a letter the past week, from  Donald Graham, M.P.P., in reference  to the proposed bridge across the West  Fork of Kettle river, in which Mr. Graham says he is doing his utmost to  have the government make an appropriation for either a bridge or ferry.  He has had the promise of an item being- placed in the estimates for the purpose. A bridge or ferry is very much  needed across the West Fork near  where that stream joins the main river  and it is hoped that Mr. Graham will  be successful in g-etting an appropriation, as there will be a large number  of prospectors going into the Canyon  creek and West Fork mining-camps  this spring and summer, and the  amount of revenue received will more  than repay the government for the out-  lav, i  PERSONAL   MENTION.  W. T. Smith returned from Spokane  on Sunday.  J. Caul field left for Virden, Man., on  Tuesday's stag-e.  Mrs. C. J. L/iuidy of Midway   was in  the.city Tuesday.  Among- the visitors to the   city   from  Midway   tiic   past   week   were   Hugh  Murray, R.  Watson, A.   Boone and W.  Murray.  Thos. Walsh is spending a couple of  weeks in Spokane,  Aid. Kerr made a business trip to  Grand Forks the past week.  Jas. Smith left this week to take the  position of blacksmith on the Snow-  shoe.  P. C. McGrath, foreman of the Ironsides spent Saturday and Sunday in  the city.  J. M. Stephens, of the Old Ironsides,  passed through Greenwood Monday, on  his way to Midway.  J. McDonald and T. Murphy came  down from the C. O. D. on Wednesday,  the former for a rest and the latter to  attend court at Midway.  R. Donegan is working on the Rover  near Boundary Falls. The tunnel is  now in 10 feet, the ledge being about  14 feet wide, giving good gold   values.  R. McL/eod, who has charge of work  being done on the C. O. D. in Lyong  L>ake camp, was in the city Wednesday. The shaft on the claim is down  55 feet.  F. B. Smith, who has been in England during the winter, returned to  Greenwood on Wednesda3r's stage from  Marcus. He reports an enjoyable time  while in the Old Country.       '  M. W. Law, general merchant, left  on Wednesday's stage for Spokane,  Victoria and Vancouver to order goods  for his hew store in Greenwood. He  will be absent about a month.  Jno. Bell and Alex Wallace, came  down from Central camp, Wednesday,  where they had been working on the  Rob Roy for the past two months. The  result of work done is very satisfactory.  Fred Oliver, of Spokane, was in the  cit}' the past week. �� He is a larg-e stockholder in the Morrison claim in Dead-  wood camp. It is probable a force of  men will be put to work on the Morrison shortly.  D.Bryan, John Gillen and George  Barrett are working- on the Prince of  Wales, West Copper camp. The shaft  on the claim is down 20 feet. The  values are in gold and copper, assays  running up into the hundreds of dollars.  The Nation, a weekly paper published in Victoria, is the latest journalistic  venture in the province. It is ably  edited.

In the debate' on the Yukon railway,  in the House of Commons,-Mr. Bostock  the member for Yale-Cariboo, spoke  favorably on the Canadian Yukon  Railway. He said it would form a link  in the line to be finally built to Ash-  croft, Kamloops, or some other point  on the Canadian Pacific road. A large  number of people will go in by the  Kamloops and Ashcroft trails, and  prospectors would use these trails afterwards, using the railway from Telegraph Creek. He said that the better  sense of the Americans would finally  prevail against their obstructing navigation on the Stickine River.  Will (?) Commence (?) Construction (?)  It is wonderful the amount of energy  displayed, by railway promoters when  applying for subsidies. The latest is  the following from a Victoria dispatch:  "The actual work of construction on  the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern  railway will. commence on April 7, if  not earlier. This positive statement  was made to-day by Dr. G. 1^. Milne,  one of the promoters of the railway.  He said the date on which work would  be commenced had not been definitely  decided, but it would be very short y.  The company will commence operations at Penticton and Chilliwack simultaneously, the two points being easy  of access for supplies. As Dr. Milne  puts it: We will soon show the people  of the Boundary creek country that we  intend to immediately give them the  railway facilities they have been clamoring" for. The assurances the company has received from both the Dominion and the provincial governments  justif-3r them, Dr. Milne says, in immediately commencing the work of construction."

The all absorbing questions now  are:���Will the United States and  Spain fight ? Would either nation fight  if they had a chance ? Could the United States successfully carry on any  kind but a newspaper war ? Could the  Spanish lick any nation except the  United States ? Would the resident  dagos be nmmerous enough to capture  and hold the United States until the  Spaniards caught ��� up ? Could the  whole Spanish navy capture and suppress an able bodied Fourth of July  orator ? What would be the result to  the Spanish navy should ; the orator  explode ?���'' Would Canada be under obligations to protect the United States  in case of ah invasion by the Spanish ?  The appeal case of Regina v. McAuley, at the sitting of the county  court on the 10th inst., should be a  warning to over-zealous magistrates.  From the evidence brought forward in  the appeal case there was apparently  no reasonable excuse for the fining of  Mr. McAuley, and the province was  put to considerable expense on account  of the justices in the case not being  possessed of average common sense.  The trouble in this province in regard  to the appointment of a large number  of the justices of the peace is, that it is  a case of nationality more than fitness  for the position. The persons appointed  as justices of the peace should be possessed, of average intelligence and  sound common . sense. Very few of  them in this district appear to have  these qualifications.  The Times committed a serious error  last week in the report of , the trial of  the Jap���Jetstia Miyakami. Taketuyu,  from whom the person with the unpronounceable name, was accused of borrowing $25, was referred to as a Japanese woman. Taketuyu informs us that  this is not the case, he being of the  male sex, and entitled to vote, smoke,  chew, swear, drink and "hari-kari" his  neighbors according to ancient custom.  The Times regrets the unfortunate  error that must have placed Taketuyu  in an embarassing position. The government should make some effort to  properly label foreigners coming- into  the country. No one in this country  could judge from the name, Taketuyu,  whether it indicated masculine or feminine tendencies on the part of the possessor, and so our mistake is  excusable.  A government measure was introduced in the provincial legislature this  week, making- valid a number of certificates of improvements to mineral  claims issued under what Justice Drake  recently decided to be a misunderstanding- of the mining- law. Hereafter  a separate advertisement will-'be required for each crown grant applied for.  At the opening of the county court  His Honor Judge Spinks severe^ criticised four prominent business men of  the district because they made affidavits in an appeal from the decision of  the judge. It would perhaps have been  advisable for the judge to have waited  for  the.   vindication   of   his   honor,   or  otherwise, by judges of the Supreme  Court, where the case is now awaiting  a hearing. Most of the people in the  district are acquainted and have done  business with both Mr. Rendell and  Mr. Kerr, and in the opinion of the  public generally the record of these  gentlemen for business integrity and  honor and truthfulness will compare  favorably with that of County Court  Judge Spinks>  A  bill  has  been  introduced  in the  Dominion   parliament   by   James Mc-  Mullen,  M.P.,  providing  "that   only  British citizens can   hold mining property in Canada,   and  they  must  have  been resident  in-Canada  at least  12  months previous  to  the  recording  of  their claims."    This bill, if it receives  the assent  of  parliament,  will  bring  Canadians   down to  the  level  of  the  , childish   legislation  of   many  of   the  States in the  American  Union.    Notwithstanding the "retaliatory " spirit  which is at  present gaining headway  in the Dominion,  we  believe  the  majority of the members will be  opposed  '" to any legislation that  makes  citizenship in the country a matter of dollars  and cents.    Such citizens  would  only  be a source of weakness to the country  as a whole,  just  as the  preponderant  foreign element in the United States is  more injurious than beneficial   to  that  country at the present time.    As Canadians, we believe in the future of  our  country,   and    any    legislation    that  forces a too numerous and not  always  too desirable  element  to  become  citizens, will be opposed to the  best interests of the country.    With  little  more  than six  millions  of  a  population, it  would be impossible for Canada to   assimilate a very large  foreign, element  annually and retain the same standard  of  education  and    intelligence    as   at  present.    Any legislation that  has for  its object   compulsory   citizenship   in  this   country   should   be   opposed   by  every true Canadian.  COUNTY COURT.  County court was held in Midway on  the 10th, inst., before County Court  Judge Spinks. At opening of court  the judge read the affidavits of James  Kerr, J. P., J. P. Flood, and G. A.  Rendell, and letter from H. S. Cayley,  barrister, Grand Forks. He stated  that affidavits and letter refereed to an  action that came before the court at  Grand Forks. That he wished to make  the documents public to the bar and  those present to show what class of  people we had amongst us. ��specially  in the affidavit of Mr. Kerr, imputing  that he had not taken notes of case  properly. The other two, Messrs. Rendell and Flood, he stated, were not  present at time of hearing of case, still  were able to make affidavit as to the  reason why he had griven judgment.  After this address by the judge the  regular business of the court was proceeded with :  Ole Johnson, Rock Creek, Christopher Columbus Warmoth, Midway, and  Frederick Scorn,Sidle}-, were admitted  to citizenship.

Norris   and  I/ewis  Hind, two-  local justices  of  the   peace,   whereby  Thomas McAuley was  convicted  and  fined in December last,   on   the charge  of supplying  liquor  to  Thos. Murphy  while intoxicated.    A jury was empan-  neled    composed    of   L,.   S.   Moulton  Barrett (foreman), W. B. Paton, J. W.  Powell, Geo. A. Guess and F. J. Miller.  Considerable evidence was heard, after  which the judge summed up as follows:  "Did McAuley know that Murphy was  drunk when he supplied the liquor ? If  he did not know, the jury should bring  in a verdict of not guilty.    If  Murphy  was drunk and McAuley supplied him  with liquor, and the jury are satisfied  from the evidence given that McAule}'  did not know Murphy was drunk, then  the verdict  should  be  not  guilty.    If  the jury thought Murphy  was   drunk,  and had  reasonable  grounds  for supposing that McAuley  was aware  that  he was in an intoxicated condition, the  jury should return a verdict of g-uilty."  Verdict:  "Not   Guilty."    A.   S. Black  appeared for the Crown, and A. L/eani}'  and J. P. McLeod for appellant.  1  r  ���t  !���  if  i J  1 i  "A  The Japanese, Jetsua Miykami, was  up before Police Magistrate Hallett  Friday morning on two charges of  forger}', and was committed for trial  on both charges. iiaiiiisaiijiisSiiiiiaiaiii-i  awflrW^ggSSaSSa  : ..'" '''���^ff'- '  V  ���#riv^  :THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  I  I  JUST   AS   SUSPECTED.  It is a matter of fact that the Toronto  Globe, through the medium of two of  its share-holders, is intimately connected with the inside management of  the C.P.R. ; hence the following extract from its columns may be taken  ^.s authoritative :  It seems that D. C. Corbin, whose  lines now enter Canada and reach Nelson, proposes to tap the Boundary  country by a railway following the  ��valley of Kettle river. He will build  this line without a subsidy, if a charter  is given him ; but there is this objection to his project, it will bring the  Kootenay (!) into closer connection  with an American railroad system than  the interests of Canadian trade render  desirable. The C.P.R. proposes to  head off the Corbin raid into its territory, or rather what will be its territory when the southern main line is  built, by extending at once into the  Boundary district, using the charter of  the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern,  which, it is understood. IS NOW OR  CAN BE SECURED. BY FRIENDS  OF THE C.P.R., and which carries a  provincial land grant. . . Mr. Corbin is the only rival the C.P.R. has in  British Columbia and must be headed  off, and the announcement that the extension into Boundary will be made  this year IS INTENDED TO and  doubtless willhave that effect. . ." ,  The weak point is that Mr. Corbin  would build without a subsidy, and  among the British Columbia members  it is argued that if Mr. Corbin can  afford to do this the C.P.R. can also.

Will Probably Resign,  Victoria dispatches state that Speaker  Higgitis of the provincial legislature  will resign. It is understood that his  resignation is in the hands of the  premier. Mr. Higgins has not been  in accord with the g-overament for  some time, and is undoubtedly one of  the ablest men in the legislature. His  resignation will weaken the government very materially.

It is rather too much to ask the  people of this province to pay salaries  to upwards of 30 legislators for four  weeks, the only result being" one challenge and no fig-ht. While the people  ai*e not exacting or unreasonable in  their demands, it is only their due from  representatives that there should be an  occasional resort to fisticuffs or legislation of some kind. Legislators come  high in this province, and if they are  " scrappers "the people want to see  them do their work well. If the government is going to appeal to the electors on the ability of its members to  handle gloves, the sooner a reputation  is made the better. It is not at all  likel}r they will be sustained with a  record of only one challenge in four  weeks,  It is reported that Mr. Price Bllison,  of Vernon, will contest East Yale in  the Government interest at the forthcoming provincial election. There is  no man in the whole upper Gkanagan  more respected and more popular than  Mr. Ellison, and he would give out-  present representative an exceeding^'  hard race.  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  This week The Boundary Ckeek  Times commences its fourth volume.  The shaft on the Snows hoe is down  about 8vS feet arid in ore. The claim is  looking well.  Joe Wiseman of Grand Forks is doing- assessment work on the Texas, in  Providence camp.  The by-laws for the water-works system and street improvements received  the almost unanimous eudorsation. of  the electors on Moiukiv last,   onlv   two  voting against the water-works by-law  and eleven against street improvements.  The Rev. T. C Guy's subject of discourse on Sabbath evening will be,  "Howto Obtain and Retain a Good  Temper."  Posters are out announcing a dance  on the 17th inst., in Rendell, & Go's,  hall, Greenwood. Prof. Boice has the  affair in charge.  Buildings are being erected on the  Brooklyn, Greenwood camp, and development work will be commenced on the  claim in a short time.  Officer Dinsmore, of Grand Forks,  came over Sunday evening, and took  Wm. Kimball back with him Tuesday  morning as a prisoner.  G. L(. Thomet and Geo. Cunningham  came down from the Big Windy, Pass  creek, Tuesday where they had been  doing assessment work.  Much credit is due Mr. J. P. Harlan  for his untiring efforts in working up  the performance given by the Dramatic  club on Saturday evening.  A number of men were put to work  in the shaft of the Golden Crown, Wellington camp, this week, and sinking  will be pushed as fast as possible.  Jack Farrell returned last week from  a trip to Boston and other eastern  points, and will commence work this  week on the Buttercup, in Wellington  camp.  Dave Henderson, foreman on the  Bruce, who has been in the Greenwood  hospital for a couple of weeks undergoing treatment for inflammation.of the  bowels, is at work again.  Geo. R. Naden, manager of the business of the Bealey Investment company  of Greenwood, left last Saturday for  Penticton on business connected with  the sale of the Bassett freighting outfit.  The amount of assessed value of  Greenwood City, according to the  assessment roll just completed by City-  Assessor Taylor, is $251,695, an increase of $47,000 over the assessment  of 1897.  The dog-poisoning fiend is still at  work in Midway, a number of dogs  having-been poisoned during the past  week. Midwa}' will soon have a record  for g-etting- rid of dogs and townsite  agents.  On the Old Ironsides, in Greenwood camp, work has been commenced sinking on the shaft, which  is now down about 130 feet. This will  be carried on to a,depth of 'about 200  feet. Two shifts are also working in  the drift at the 100-foot level.  The people.of this district should feel  g-rateful to M. Stephen Taylor, formerly of Greenwood, tor advertising  Boundary creek country. During- the  winter he has given a series of lectures  accompanied with "lime light views,  on a winter and summer trip to the  gold fields of British Columbia." A  large number of the views are from  Greenwood and vicinity.  On Monday last a half interest in the  Keystone, an adjoining claim to the  Rambler.-Pass creek, was transferred  b3T J. 'M. Lloyd and John Jackman to  J. Caulfield. of Virden. Manitoba.  The Keystone is considered a g-ood  property although not much work has  been, done on it. The other interests  in the claim are owned by Aid. Kerr  and Aid. Paton of Greenwood. It is  expected that work will be commenced  on the claim in a short time.  H.

Mr. Editor.���-Having-been eng-ag-ed  | for some years at mining-, and having  I acquired   experience  which   might   be  J of  service  to   others  engaged  in   the  j same pursuit, I have been led to believe  that some information mig-ht be acceptable to the masses of our people  on the subject of veins, with the known  laws of their occurrence, and the information mig-ht be of service in assisting-in the development of this very  important part of the mineral wealth  of the country.  True veins are  fissures  in the crust  of the earth, of  indefinite  length and  depth, which   have been subsequently  filled  with   mineral  matter.    As they  are  believed  to  have  originated  in a  fracture of   the  strata,  caused by the  action of  a  powerful  force far below,  they may  be  expected   to  extend indefinitely  downward.    Experience   so  far verifies this opinion, that  no well-  developed   and  well-defined   vein   has  yet been found terminating entirely at  any  depth   which  has  been  reached,  while nothing   is more common than a  disappearance  of  other  forms of   deposits.    The length of veins upon the  surface   varies   greatly.     Some  have  been traced for  miles, and  differ as to  their   matallic   contents   in    different  parts sf their course, some parts being  entirely barren, while  others  are well  charged with ore.    As a  general  rule  the longer the vein the  more  liable is  it to prove productive somewhere. The  length and breadth of a  vein  have no  necessary  relation.    The  width  is, of  course,   irregular,   because  when   the  fracture took place the  rocks were not  only torn  apart, but  also  uplifted, so  that one side of the crack has slid upon  the other, making a fissure altogetber  devoid of  parallelism  between its two  faces.    If this notion  of the  previous  fracturing of  the  surface  be correct,  we should expect to  find  a  concentration of veins in   certain  regions of the  earth,   for  a   great    upheaval   which  should fracture the crust  in one place,  would   be   likely  to   cause   numerous  cracks   all   about   the   center  of   the  greatest force.    The vein is not a mass  of ore exclusively, the  greater portion  of it being occupied   by rock  different  from the surrounding  strata, which is  known as  the  vein  stone or  gangue.  Quartz is  the  most  common  mineral  found in this position.    It  occurs in a  variety of forms, usually highly chrys-  talline,   especially   in   the   "bugs"   or  cavities  of   the   vein.    Each   mineral  district   appears  to   have   vein  stones  peculiar   to itself.    In   addition to the  true vein stones the lode often contains  fragments   of    the    adjacent    strata,  which appears to have been introduced  mechanically.       These     may     be     in  numerous minute pieces, so as to g-ive  the gangue a brecciated   character, or  .   the3r may be   in large   masses.    When  one of the latter  occurs   it  is   called a  .   " horse." The fissure has often numerous offshoots or supplementary fissures  branching from it.    These   are  called  droppers when the3" leave the vein, and  when they concentrate   or  drop into it  again, they are called feeders.    Their  direction and appearance  are   important guides   to   the   miner.    The  vein  fissure   is   sometimes     abruptly   contracted,   and   then   it   is   said   to   be  a  nipped."    The mass  of  vein  stones  is usually separated from cthe  wall by  thin bands of clay or similar  soft substances, which are usually called " selvages. ''    By  preventing  too close ad-  ; hesion to the  rock  they  facilitate the  removal of the  contents  of  the  vein.  The   walls    are    often    smooth    and  grooved as though the lode had rubbed  against   them.     These    surfaces,    are  called     "slickensid.es."      Few    veins,  are so uniformly rich in ore  as   to pay  for   the   entire  removal of   their contents.    It   is   customary,   therefore, to  confine the operations   to   the rich portions of  the vein, leaving the poor undisturbed.    The rich bunches are ver3r  irregular in   their  occurrence, and the  chances of finding them in any particular spot can only be; estimated after a  thorough examination of the system of  lodes in the district.    One kind of rock  usually is richer   than   any other, and  this  presents,   of course, the  greatest  inducements for a  liberal   expenditure  of time and money.    Where  there   are  numerous  parallel  veins,   the  run , of  the courses  of  ore, or  the  relation of  the rich masses to the entire vein, will  usually be found  to   be similar   in all  the  lodes.    When,   therefore,  one has  been properly opened  and  explored, it  serves as a guide  to   all   the   rest.    It  requires, however, no little  experience  to  decide  upon  the characters  which  justify  working,   and even   then   the  longest  acquaintance  with   these subjects will often   serve  to   mislead   the  miner who attempts  to apply the'rules  of one district to another mining region  The  irregularities   of   the   fissures of  course involve   the  practical miner in  numerous difficulties.   A vein has been  known to dip   parallel  with   the strata  and  then   to   be   shifted   to   a  plane  twentj'  or  thirty feet distant, without  any   dislocation   of   the   surrounding  rocks.    In such a  case   a   fissure   may  cennect the two fragments of   the vein  and yet be so small as  to  escape detection.    A   true   vein   may also for some  distance coincide with   the   dips of the  strata,  and   may   send   out   offshoots  which  follow   the   planes of cleavage  and yet the main fissure in   the rest of  its course may cut the different layers  across.    In such a ca:se it will be necessary to cut the lode for some  distance  in order  to   ascertain   whether it be a  genuine fissure vein, and  whether the  branches parallel to  the  stratification  have not been opened along the line of  easiest fracture.    After the first set of  fissures  had  been made and filled up,  there  was  no  reason  why   a  new set  should not occur, since the crust of the  earth was still subject to   the same influence.    There is  abundant  evidence  of   such  subsequent   fractures  in the  numerous secondary veins which cross  the older lodes and  heave  them to one  side or the  other.    These crossings of  different sets of veins are  usually considered  favorable   indications  of rich  veins, especially   at  the  point of contact.    The fissures  opened deep in the  crust of the earth may be  supposed to  have been   filled   with   water,   holding  mineral matter in solution.  Passing throughthe different strata  these solutions would be differently  acted upon in accordance with the  varying chemical constitution of the  rocks. If the water were adultrated  it would act upon the metallic particles  with which it came in contact. It is  easy to see how on this hypothesis a  vein might be richer in certain rocks  than in others. Either the rock might  contain more metallic substances, or it  might act more readily upon those in  solution in vein tissues. That some  action has taken place in the surrounding strata is evident from the alteration in'the neighborhood of the lode.  They are either decomposed or rotten  or they are more impregnated with  silicious matter. The existence of  electric currents in veins has been  established by the testimony of several  independent observers.    They are sup  posed to  originate   in the lode, and to  have   no   connection   with   the   great  magnetic circles  of the earth.    Nearly  all veins are characterized  near  their  surface by evidence of  atmospheric or  other chemical   actions.    The   surface  ones vary from those we find below, in  being far more oxydized.    This, if the  mass of the vein contain sulphrets, we  find the surface ores almost exclusively  carbonates, silicates and other ox3rsalts.  In many   copper   veins   the copper has  almost  wholly   disappeared,   the   sul-  phurets having   been oxydated  to sulphates, which being soluble  in waters  have been washed  out,  leaving, a porous iron ore or a peculiar rotten weather-stained   quartz   upon   the   surface.  The  depth   to which these  alterations  extend is very variable.    Sometimes it  is confined to the surface, the sulphrets  remaining   imdecomposed   up'  to   the  soil.    Usually it reaches to a depth   of  a hundred feet and it has been known  to be still quite evident at three  hUnd-  dred feet below the surface.  To recapitulate the practical points,  we may say that true tissue veins are  deep and do not run out or sensibly  diminish in contents of ore at any  depth which, has yet been reached,  while segregated and gash veins and the  various irregular deposits, though  often very rich as far as they go, cannot be relied upon as having the same  permanence with a true vein.

The spectacle of Mayor  Houston, of  Nelson, in the role of moral  reformer,  almost   transcends   the realm of possibility.    John, as he is familiarly called  by his friends, has never been regarded as a champion   of  reform, but   the  events of the past few weeks at Nelson  has  demonstrated   the  probability   of  the seemingly   improbable   being   the  most likely thing to happen under certain   conditions     and    circumstances.  It was  not   suspected   that   for   some  months Mayor Houston had  been carrying moral reform germs about in his  system and  harboring  in  his breast a  < secret enmity   for  that delusive catchpenny  of  the  cigar-vendor, known to  commerce as the nickel-in-the-slot machine.    Yet; such was  the  case, and a  week or so  ago  this antipathy   manifested itself in a peremptory order from  His   Worship  to  remove   these   traps ,  for the  unwary   from  the counters of  the tobacconists.    Some of the tobacco  dealers refused,   and   Mayor   Houston  sallied forth "armed with all the majesty of the law,   and cast   forthwith   all  the offending machines into the streets.  Several of the aldermen objected to the  unceremonious removal   of the   machines,  with  the  result that other offenses against the peace and well-being of  the   highly   moral   citizens  of Nelson  may be removed.    Where this   crusade  in the  interests , of  good  morals   will  end no one seems to hazard an opinion.  The belief,'however, is generally entertained that since Mayor  Houston   has  placed his hand to   the   plow   he   will  never turn back until he completes the  good  work.    His Worship  is   earning  for himself the title of John, the Evangelist.���Nation.  CHIEF JUSTICE  DEAD.  Hon. Theo.

Ottawa!, March 5.���The passage of  the Alaska homestead bill by the United States senate and the withdrawal of  the bonding- privileges from Canada in  that district unless certain concessions  are obtained from the Canadian government in return have stirred up  much feeling here, and the result will  likely be that the Canadian Yukon  railway will be built from Telegraph  creek right through to Fort Simpson,  on the British Columbia coast, so as to  avoid the difficulties being created at  Fort Wrangel. No concessions will  be made by Canada for a right of way  which has been g-iveii her by treaty,  namely, the free navigation of the  Stickeen river for commercial purposes.  Section   13   of   the   Bill   referred to  reads in part as follows :  "That under  rules   and  regulations  to be prescribed by the secretary of the  treasury,     the   privileg-e   of   entering  goods in warehouses   and merchandise  in   bond  or of placing them in bonded  warehouses  at  the  port of   Wrangel,  district of Alaska, and of withdrawing  the same for exportation  to  any place  in British  Columbia or the Northwest  territory without payment of   duty   is  hereby granted  to   the government of  the dominion   of Canada  and   its citizens or citizens   of  the  United   States  whenever and so long as it shall appear  .to   the sense of  the  president  of   the  United States ; that no exclusive privilege   of  transportation through   British  Columbia  or the  Northwest territory goods or passengers arriving from  or destined for other  ports   in  Alaska  is granted  to . any   person   or corporation by the government of   the  dominion of Canada, and that   the   privilege  has been  duly  accorded to such possible persons or  corporations operating  transportation lines  in British Columbia or the Northwest territory'  or making direct connection   with transportation lines in Alaska ; and that the government of the   dominion  of   Canada  has consented  to   and   is   allowing on  behalf of citizens of the United  States  the   entry  free  of  duty of all miners'  outfits and a supply of provisions   and  clothing, the whole  not   exceeding-   in  quantity 1000 pounds for each citizen of  the United States proposing- to eng-age  in mininn-  in   British   Columbia or the  Northwest territory ; and that the government of the   dominion    of   Canada  has removed    all   unequal   restrictions  as to the   issue   of   miners',  licenses to  all citizens of the United   States oper-  at'n���>��� or intending- to   operate   in British Columbia or the  N.-W, Territory."  iu  eef i Puis  II  IS  m  m  w  'M  vi!  y.vt-  Wholseale and Retail Dealers in  FRDSH   AND   SALTED   MEATS  ~*~~J".'-    HAMS,   BACON,   LARD,    Etc. : : :  GREENWOOD; GRAND EORKS. & MIDWAY.
