With commencementof construction  on the Midway unci Vernon railway  and its completion to Penticton at'an  early date, an impetus will he given to  mining on tin? Kettle river and the  West .Fork. A short account of the  camps in this comparatively new and  undeveloped-district may prove of interest to many readers who are not  engaged in mining as well as those  who  are.  From Greenwood to the summit of  the divide between the Kettle river  valley and the Upper Okamigan, a distance of about eighty miles by wagon  road, the country is morn or less mineralized'. Of the 'territory lying between the West Fork and the Kettle  river the same can be said.  BetAveen  Greenwood  and the junction of Rock  creek  with  the Kettle  river, a. distance of about twenty miles,  there isvan almost continuous mineral  belt.    On Rock creek and its tributar-  ies both lode .and placer mining have  been carried nn for years���������the latter  for forty years.     Eight miles .above  Rock  creek is ^Westbridge.    At this  point the West Fork joins the Kettle  river.    Up this fork  of the river the  proposed railway will be  built,  connecting .Midway and Penticton. Along  the whole proposed line   of  railway  mineral locations have been made and  development carried oh for years, and  from some.of the high-grade mines regular shipments have been made.  The  properties   are,   as   a   rule,   medium  grade,  the silver-bearing Areins carrying values of $38 to $1,'668, the average  being between one and two hundred'  dollars-   The silver-gold veins* do not.  run so high as the silver-lead, a-nd assays from the big copper-gold ledges  gave retfirias from  $3.80  to  slightly  above $20:   In some of the claims the  principal -values are gold, and in others  copper, but the large majority of the  properties on which any considerable  development   has   been   done   carry  silver-lead  values.  CONXLE CREEK.  On Conkle creek, a few miles above  Westbridge, some, claims Ave re located  a number of years ago. The claims  are. situated about nine miles from the  river. Very little definite information  has been obtained about these locations more than that they carry  copper-gold willies and are large bodies  of low-grade ore.  BOOMERANG   CAMI'.  This camp is situated ten miles above  Westbridge. About fifty locations  were made in 1808. The A'nlues average from $0;) to $100 in silver-gold with  a small percentage of copper. No .shipments have been made from this camp.  BULL   CJREEK.  Across the river from Bull creek  there is a. mineral belt lying between  Kelly and Goat creeks���������a distance of  about three  miles���������on which some 20  Beaver creek on the north, a distance  of about three miles. Wallace mountain, named after Alex. Wallace, one  of the first prospectors to make locations in the camp, has a number of  parallel veins running' through it almost due east and west. These veins  average between $100 aiul $200 in silver  and are from 6 inches to 0 ft. in Avidth.  A large amount of .development has  been done in this camp, and about six  hundred tons of ore have been shipped  to the. smelter, but the long haul by  wagon road���������50 miles���������has proved a  serious drawback.  ��������� THE T.OW-S1UDE BELT.  1  North of Wallace mountain the formation changes. The surface showings  are iron cappings covering large bodies  of low-grade, copper-gold ore,'similar  in many respects to the low-grade  bodies of the Boundary .t ��������� This low-  grade belt extends to the headwaters  of Beaver creek, about sixteen miles.  About three; miles abrive the town of  Beaverdell, on,the west side of Beaver  creek, is King Solouion camp, in which  are big quartz ledges, carrying fair  values in gold and silver, with some  lead'and copper. .Farther up tieaver  creek are the Knob Hill, McBoyle's  camp, the Big Strike, and Mosher's  camp, allenormous bodies of low-grade  copper-gold ore, which will require  railway transportation and smelters  nearby before they can be worked at  a   profit. "  -  CIUNA   C14EEK.  ���������About five miles up the West Fork  from Carmi camp is China creek, wheie  is found a large body of copper-gold  ore running through the country for a  distance of six or seven miles to the  East Fork of the West Fork.

Ten miles above Goat creek a mineral belt is encountered at Cranberry  creek. This belt is continuous until  the town of Carmi is icached. A large  number of locations have been made  in this belt, and many of them Have  been crown-granted.  WALLACE  MOUNTAIN.    '  On the east side of the river nearly  opposite Cranberry creek, is Dry  creek,  which may be ti-'rined the com-  jjj mencenient of the   high-grade  silver  X  ^E������������������������������������^n������#pWH^^^A*������^*������^'W.'^^'*,.  belt on Wallace  mountain,   lying  be  twee.n    Dry  creek  on  the south  and  .ARLINGTON   CAMP.  Eight miles  above   Carmi.   on   the  Avest side of the river,  is Arlington  camp.    In  this  camp  there is a large  iron capping,  across which run small  quartz veins.    On the  Dalhoiisie free  gold is found in the oxidation in these  veins.    On  the  Arlington claim, most  development has been   done.    It was  located,, in  1888, and is knoAvn by old-  timers as the Headlight.   Its principle  values are copper-gold,  Avith some sil-  A'er.     Assays obtained  in  1S96 from  .Guess Bros,  went' IS per cent, in cop-  jier.    The claim belonged- to the Biel-  ' en berg estate and is 'now oAA'ned by  the Bank of Montreal.    It has been a  live claim since 1895.   *  KALLIS CAMP.  On the Avest side of Arlington lakes  above Arlington -ea.mp is Kallis camp.  This is a large quartz lead carrying  free milling values of from $6 to $20  to the ton, and it is believed by those  competent to judge will develop into a  great mine.     .      '        '  DEVELOPMENT AND SHIPMENTS.  ���������"���������- Owing to the cost of transportation,  shipments have only been made from  two of these camps���������Carmi and Wallace mountain.    The Carmi  mine Avas  located in the fall of 1S97  by-Jas. C.  Dale,   for  himself and others who did  considerable prospect and development  work, and sold it to an   English syndicate,  represented  by E. H. Tliruston.  The development-  work  done   by the  company consists of   shafts,   tunnels  and  open  crosscuts.   No. 1 shaft was  sunk to a depth  of 40 feet,  and   from  this a. drift was run <i() feet.    From discovery a tunnel was run  (50 feet,  and  from  discovery  to   west end of claim  open   cuts  were   made at intervals of  about one hundred feet,  cross-cutting  the vein.    No. 2 shaft was sunk 0") feet  in   the  footwall,   exposing the ore all  the way.    No. 3  was sunk   183 feet in  ore.    From the 00-foot level 900 tons of  ore was stoped.   At the 100-level drifts  Avere run 60 feet west and 100 feet east  in ore,   and at the.lGO-level drifts were  run on the ore -10 feet- east and  (50 feet  Avest.    The vein is quartz,  4A to  o feet  in width, and carries values from $4.15  gold and ii ozs. silver to $350 gold and  00 ozs. silver.    The   mine  is  equipped  with a 00 horse power boiler,  a No. 3  hoist, a 10-stamp quartz mill,  arid   cyanide  tanks.    Eight   hundred  tons of  ore  were shipped   to  the smelt**!- and  300 tons put  through  the   mill.  .The  mine is not now working.    Yehrs ago  we marvelled at the-  manner in which  a retired Bi-itish army or naval officer  could run a mine.

The snap A-erdict which they hoped  would be secured by dissolving the  Saskatchewan legislature- has resulted  in wrecking the. government.  Although taken wholly by surprise,  as no one dreamt of an election being'  brought on Avhen the government had  only been elected in 1907, Haultain  accepted the challenge and marshalled  his forces, not allowing a single seat to  go by default, but pushing the fight all  alone- the line.    But not even his most  -*������  t  ft  >   *  F   *  Xv  Humor was busy for a few days last  week regarding a deal which was reported pending for the purchase of the  Golden  Zone.  It was reported a few weeks ago  that, officials of the Daly Reduction  Company % made overtures for the  purchase of the property, but at that  time the water for milling had not  played,out, and the fine showing that  was being made on the plates did not  tend to dispose the' owners to part  with the claims. The failure of their  plans, however, has in all probability  left the owners little option as to the  immediate course to be followed.  Option for bond has now been given  by the owners to G. P. Jones, superintendent of the Nickel Plate and Sunny-  side mines, at a figure that is variously  stated from $10,000 to $75,000, and  time is given to explore the property,  although it is understood that the  holders of the bond are to make an  immediate payment of sufficient to  pay oft' the few outstanding debts  against the property, which are insignificant.  Whether Mr. Jones has taken the  option on spec, oft' his own bat, or in  behalf of others is'a matter that no  one. appears to know, raid it is within  his. right to give it out or keep it to  himself as he may see fit. We understand it is his intention to sample and  explore during the life of the option,  as fully as time and .circumstances  will oerm.it him.  MURDER AT VERNON.  Hon. F. G. W. Haultain>  ssaiaguitie friends had any real hope of  his success Avheu they figured the odds  against him. '  Not least of the disadvantages he  was up against, was the fact that the  old Dominion A-oters' lists Avouid have  to be  used.  Then again the land offiice influence  was an obstacle that to Mr. Haul tain's  friends seemed insurmountable, for  the land officials had been federal appointees who had an opportunity of becoming acquainted with and influencing the hew foreign element that has  come in.  Three ministers wei^e defeated, Calcl-  er, Motherwell and Turgeon, although  the last mentioned saved himself by  running in two constituencies and managing to get elected in one of them.  The government claim a majority of  ���������1 and Haultain claims to be one ahead.  Only the official figures declared by  the returning officers will decide iL  Recounts and protests will be sure  to  follow.  LABOR DAY SPORTS.  Concluded on.-Pnye "���������'our.  The horse-racing and baseball tournament will be the central features in  | the Labor Day celebration at Hedley.  For 'the baseball a $200 prize will be  given, and already teams and combination teams are talked of for the event.  It is understood that Sunimerland has  a likely bunch that Avill come over and  have, a try for it, and they are said to  be genuine home men, which will be  all the more credit to them if they win.  A Kerenieos-Nighthawk coalition is  also talked of as another likely aspirant. It is not known whether Hedley  Avill have a team in it or not; some of  the players seem to know nothing  about it, which is rather peculiar if  they intend to play. The horse-racing  events are likely also to draw some  good   stock.  Quarrel Over an Irrigation Ditch Results  in Killing of F. E. Layton.  What a blood-thirsty, gruesome sort  of place that Vernon is getting fo be.  Counting Siwash killings in the vicinity with those occurring in the town,  there is already a score of some half  dozen to he chalked up.  The. Summerlaud Review in its last  issue has the following account of this  latest crime on Thursday last:  "A shocking tragedy occurred at  Vernon on Thursday morning av here by  F. E. Layton met a sudden and violent  end at the hands of a Swede named  Anderson.  "It seems tlie men had quarrelled  over the rights to a spring of water,'  and Layton had announced his intention of digging a drain to it, whereupon Anderson informed him that if  he started in to dig the drain he would  never leave it aud never dig another.  Layton, in the exercise of what he  considered his just rights within the  law, proceeded to dig, and Anderson  fired on him, killing him instantly.  " One report says that another man  who was Avith Anderson also received  a couple of bullets in the thighs and is  badly used up in consequence.  "Anderson, who has hitherto, it is  said, been regarded as a peaceful citizen, immediately surrendered himself,  to the authorities.  "Mr. Layton is not unknown in  Sumnierland, especially to the Nova  Scotians here. He. came from near  Truro. He was here for some time a  year ago last Avinter and Avill be remembered by the throat difficulty he  had Avhich obliged him to speak at  times in a small Avhisper."

United States as in the year 19'JS, and  yet in spite of all the warning against  permitting the spread of fires, it is  strange that in this year one 'of the  most destructive fires that ever occurred in the province of British Columbia has taken place, laying waste a  large tract of country and destroying  over six million dollars worth of timber with serious loss of life.  While  there    has for    many years  been on the statutes of British Columbia a   law   known   as  the Bush Fires  Act, which   prescribed  certain   penalties looking towards the   preservation  of   our   forests   from destruction  by  fire.it  is  only within    the   past two  years that they  were .disposed   to  go  farther in the way of organizing some  system   for   the   prevention   of   fires,  and yet this disaster in East Kootenay  goes to show  how  Avholly   ineffectual  has been that partial organization   to  give greater  immunity from  danger  of loss of life  and  property by  forest  fires.    Of course,  the vast area corn-  prised within the bounds of the  pro\7-  ince of British Columbia, and the difficult character  of  the  mountain fastnesses   Avhich   contain   much   of our  forest wealth, makes the task of effectual preservation a colossal 011c, especially when a depleted treasury left little of the sinews of  war for effective  fire   fighting.      Tins appointment  of  lire wardens a little over a, year  ago,  following shortly after the holding  of  the Forestry Convention in the fall  of  1000, was evidence that the  provincial  realize that  was necessary than  the passive position that had hitherto  been maintained, but these- provincial  fire wardens as a rule had districts too  large for them lo look after properly,  and as a result bush fires have been  going on as before, and the guilty  parties avIio caused the fires have gone  undetected and unpunished. Either  the existing fire districts should be  cut down or the duties and responsibilities of lire wardens so amended as  to make them realize that for every  destructive fire a reckoning will be required, both as to origin and to effort  expended in putting it out. Tf fire  wardens and constables will do their  duty punishment should follow each  offence. When a Avreck occurs on a  railway , effort is at once put forth to  Sir Wilfrid Laurier should try  tlie ice -.himself  now   and quit  shoving any more little fellows  out on it.    In  New  Brunswick  his attempt to test public .opinion resulted, in* the drowning of  Tweedie.    He next shoved Gou-  in out on  a  sheltered ;pond  in  Quebec on  the  same day  that  he feared thin ice for his candidates in Ontario, with-the result-  that Gouin came near getting, a,  clucking.    He next shoved  out  Scott in''. Saskatchewan   where  he-thought it'would be strong  enough to hold up  a team, but  Haultain  dug  holes in  it and  Scott went through.    Whether  he can be brought, round with  gubernatorial artificial respiration or perhaps a coalition plaster'remains to be seen.   Laurier  must get his own skates on one  of these days and he is not adding to his peace of mind in facing  the ordeal by this-heartless sacrifice of his innocents.  A sensible feature'-'for. which  the C. P. R. is to be commended  is the maintenance of lire wardens along wooded portions of  their lines.1" The C. RE. own  some very valuable-timber lands  and it is to. their interests that  they should'grant assistance in  lighting bush fires and having  them extinguished as soon as  possible. If 0. P. R. wardens  and the provincial government  wardens should be -patrolling,  the same territory it is to be  hoped that each -will not wait  for the other to take the'initia-  tive in putting out iires by way  of seeing how much money they  can save for their employers.by  letting the other fellow shoulder the expense.

GUINEY,       -*      -       PROPRIETOR  The rumor-is current that the  present Ottawa government is  to have the  assistance of two  railways, the C. P. R. and G.T.P.  in the coming contest.   Two  of  the evidences   pointed   out in  proof of this  are  that papers  which' are held to be organs  of  the C. P. R. have let up on their  criticisms' of the  government's  misdoings and taken to enlargement upon themes like "the re-  vival of ostrich farming," and  that the  C. P. R.  figured   conspicuously in the subsidies handed out in the  dying  hours  of  the last session,  notwithstanding the former protestations 'of  government supporters that the  giving of subsidies to the C.P.R.  was an abomination tliey could  never think  of tolerating,   no  matter Iioav much,  they   may  have  voted  away   in  extravagant subsidizing  of  the  Grand  Trunk Pacific.  Hearst's independent party  will not likely .prove much of a  factor in the United States presidential election, so far as the  independent party themselves  are concerned, but it will certainly pull a, heap of votes away  from. Bryan and not many from  the Republicans. In this way  Taft should entertain a neighborly feeling for Hearst who,  whether he meant-it or hot, will  have acted the kindly part of  helping a fat dog over the stile.

F. M. El,kins returned Monday from  a trip to the Similkameen. He says  ,T. F. Royer was held up on Friday  last on the divide, between Penticton  and Keremeos. He had sold some  horses at Penticton and was returning home with $-102.50 in his clothes.  He slipped the $100 in his gauntlets,  and so the bold bad highwayman got  only $2.50. The government is going  to build a 1,000-foot bridge at Keremeos. W. M. Frith has a fruit ranch  at Keremeos, Bradshaw, formerly of  this city has bonded a claim on Twenty-mile for $100,000.

McLean, of Ashnolu, Avas in  town on Tuesday.  . Hugh Hunter, government agent, of  Princeton, was in town yesterday on  his way to Kamloops.  Miss Blake has- heen engaged to  teach at Mnrysvitle in East Kootenay  at-a higher salary than she was getting in  Hedley.-  Miss Mildred Ivirhy, of Keremeos,  who spent a few days herewith Miss  Lowndes; returned home at the end  of last  Aveek.  Mr. and Mrs. H. L. P. Chenies, of  Spokane, came in on Tuesday. Mr.  Chenies is draughtsman on V. V. & E.  construction.  They are at- No. 2 camp.  The steam shovel resinned work on  Monday the- 10th, and has heen working,smoothly ever since. They ,ate  reported to he moving dirt quite fast  now. *  H. A. Hincks, teller in the Bank of  B. N. A., left on Monday morning for  Vancouver to spend his holidays, Mr.  Chester remaining to relieve him.  - It is reported that W. D. McMillan  has honded the Apex group on Independence Mountain. ��������� This property  was under hond to the B. C. Copper  Co three years ago, and the work  done showed up ji fine body of ore of  good value.  .Journeying into the Similkameen  over the Hope trail is coming into  favor Avith quite a few Vanconverites  who, do not mind a little strenuous-  ness in their outing. One party consisting of E. D. Ker,, O. Stewart and  J. Lindsay reached here yesterday.  Still another automobile that'is likely to pay periodical visits to the Similkameen, is the new IS h. p. runabout  purchased by ,T. McCreath oi^ the  Greenwood Liquor Co. Mr. McCreath  has extensive business connections in  the Similkameen which brings him  here frequently.  J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the  V. V. ������fc E. was in town yesterday on  his way up the valley. He says that  the steam shovel is doing good work  these days and that if they are lucky  enough to escape any more breakdowns they Avill soon get through with  their present task and move up.  A. E. Deninan, recently from England, has purchased a*half interest in  A. Winkler's ranch on the mountain  to the west of the town for $22(10, and  is already at work getting the land in  shapes Some other s land adjoining,  which Mr. Winkler held-as mineral  lands is noAV coA^ered under the Land  Act and added to the holding.  Messrs. .and Mesdamcs Rose and  Lincl of the Hedley House and Great  Northern Hotel chartered Bremner's  automobile for a run to Princeton on  Friday last. The road being new to  him, the chauffeur didn't let the ma-  ceine out for any bursts of speed, and  two hours served to make the run, the  same time being taken   coming   back.  Constable Sproule returned on Saturday evening, having made a speedy  trip in leaving his last prisoner in  Kamloops gaol. He learned of the  Vernon murder Avhile passing through  there on Thursday. The murderer  Anderson fired two shots at Lay.ton,  before killing him, and also fired 15  shots more at ,T. R. Brown, two of the  bullets grazing him.  Mr. L. G. MacHaffie, manager of  the Bank of B. N. A., returned from  his holidays on Saturday. It was his  intention to run up to Prince Rupert,  but concluded that the trip would  make too big a hole in the time at his  disposal, and there Avas too much attraction in the Avay of sport at Vancouver. His sister, Miss Lou. MacHaffie, accompanied him on his return  and is spending a Aveek or two, the  guest of Mr. and Mrs. McLean and  daughters.  Mr. Camsell is expecting a visit from  Mr. R. W. Brock, acting director of  the Geological Survey about the first  of September. During his stay in  this"camp, avo venture there is a treat  in store for Mr. Brock in the many interesting geological features Avhich  Mr. Camsell Avill have to show him.  Last year director A. P. Low Avas  much impressed with the camp, but  was not in the state of health Avhich  would enable him to follow the greyhound strides of Mr. Camsell across  country, hut in Mr. Brock he Avill have  something of an athlete like himself  in tow, and in all his journeyings  through the canyons of tne Kootenay  or in the lands lying between New  Ontario imd James Bay, it is doubtful  Avhether Mr. Brock has ever encountered geological problems as interesting as that Avhich gave to Camp Hedley its wonderful deposits of gold-  bearing ores.  . Canadian thistles are growing in  the Kenmieos valley���������Ledge. Well,  haven't they a' right to? This is  Canada.  The pull of smoke hanging,in the  valley these days'argues the existence  of extensive, bush fires at some points  in the district.  Mr. J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer  for the V. V. k, E., paid Hedley a visit  on1 Thursday last. He had nothing  further to give or.t'concerning date-of  completion. *  Shatfoids Limited ha\To just received the Campbell Clothing Co.'s new  fall clothing samples. These samples  are the best ever shown in Hedley and  if you require a new suit, coat or fancy vest you should not fail to call and  look them over.   <  George Walker-, teamster for A.'  Pleasanco met with an accident on  Saturday last. The load of wood  which he was hauling upset going  down a grade owing to the failure of  the brake, and threw him oil', one of  the wheels passing over his foot.  Dr. Westwood, formerly of Grand  Forks, but lately of the International  Coal and (Joke Co. at Coleman, Alta.  was in town on Friday last. Dr.  ���������Westwood oAvns a valuable flat on the  Siinilkanieen below Princeton, and it  is rumored that there is a deal on to  sell it, or ii portion of it.  There is a portion of the sporting  fraternity of Keremeos, white and  black, that shouldn't bet, or at least  not until they can learn to do so without making themselves so uneiiviably  conspicuous. * The Trumpet says that  at the next sitting of ��������� the- County  Court, Ii. J. Armstrong is suing the  stake holders, A. Osborne, C. L. Cuni-  mings and P. Bromley for stake money whicli they paid over.  The Gazette Avas A'ory sorry to learn  that Mr. E. S. Collin received a letter-  last week from his wife's relatives in  England that Mrs. Collin had been  taken ill in a traiu with paralysis, and  Avas in a dangerous condition. The  letter stated that if any unfavorable,  turn should come they would send  him a cablegram, and the absence of  such is to he regarded as favorable.  Later���������Mv. Collin has since receiA-ed  more favorable report.  The Sunimerland Review,  of Avhich  two copies have already  been issued,  is a very creditable publication,   Avell  printed and ably edited.-  In fact  it is  one of the best papers in   the district  right now.   It is published by the Review Publishing Co., Limited, and the  manager, Mv. J. F. Watkins,  evident-  ]y understands his business.    There  is  no scabbing on subscription or advertising-rates; a paper of-its  merit does  not need to scab.   There   is some  encouragement for the Review to give a  good paper, for  the  business  men  of  Sninuierlaiid show  by their advertising patronage that   they ^deserve   it.

Adjoining the Carmi is the Butcher-  Boy, prospected by open cuts exposing  the vein for -101) feet west of the Carmi  line. A shaft was sunk 75 feet, and  from it drifts,were urn 35 feet at the  40-level and 50 feet at the 70-!evel.  Three cars of ore wen; shipped, running $80,, $-10 and $44.10 per ton, net.  There is a, shaft-house, blacksmith shop  and whim on the property. There are  a number of other live claims in Carmi  camp on which development has* been  done but no shipments made.  On AVallace mountain alarge amount  .of work has .been done in the past  seven years and small shipments made  to pay expenses of development. The  group en which most Avork has heen  done is the Sally. There are a number  of parallel veins running through  Wallace mountain ranging from six  inches to six feet in width. Of these  A-eins at least nine run through the  Sally group. Altogether about 1,000  feet of work has been done, principally  on No. 1 and No. 2 veins, in drifting  and stuping. The shipments so far  haA'e amounted to 180 tons, miming in  net values from $125 to $110 to the ton.

Desperado Was Reported to  Have Headed for B. C.  The cost'of haulage by wagon road in a  great measure handicaps development.  The next claim in   importance in respect of development and shipments is  the Rambler, owned hy AV. H. Rambo,  J. XV. Nelson  and  F. J. Finucane.    A  shaft was sunk SO feet and 50 feet of  stuping.done from this, and adrift run  SO feet from  the bottom of the shaft.  A tunnel is now in 1S5 feet and in another 15 or 20 feet is  expected  to   tap  the vTein at a depth of 140 feet.    Seventy-six  tons of ore  have been shipped  from the Rambler-,   returning net values of.$7-1, $178, $119, $111 .per ton respectively for the four car shipments.  J. P. Kelly is at present working on  the Buster, near'tho Rambler.   At a  depth of 10 feet there is a 22-inch lead  of galena, averaging over $100 per ton.  On the Bounty Fraction and Duncan  which Ave re under the same  management for some time,   considerable  development has heen  done.      On   the  Bounty   Fraction   three  shafts   have  been  sunk,  one 40 feet, one 100 feet,  and one 75 feet on the line between the  two  claims.    On' the   Duncan a, shaft  has been .Mink on No. -1 vein 51) feet and  from this a diift was run 125 feet.    On  No. 2 lead there is a 50-foot shaft with  28 feet of drifting.    One vein has been  stripped 1S00 feet across   both  claims.  Fifty-eight   tons   of   ore    have   been  shipped, averaging about $100 per ton,  net.    Two men are at present working  on the Bounty Fraction.  About twentA' tons of ore have been  V ( Palmer Mountain Prospector.  So far as known, Phillips, the half-  breed who killed Seibert a couple of  weeks ago," has not been apprehended.  As Phillips is a desperate man and Avell  armed, free Avith a gun and a good  shot, it is not likely that he will be  taken alive, and in trying to make the.  arrest.,some one is liable to get hurt.  The commissioners of Ferry connty  have offered a reward of $250 for- his  arrest, and if it is necessary to resort  to killing no questions Avill be asked.  The amount is hardly sufficient to  encourage any one to reach out and  collar Mr. Phillips.  ���������. -������.   THE AUGUST "ROD AND GUN".
