ROSE  Proprietor  X  X  X  X  X  X  3  X  X-  X  X  Last week the Gazette paid a visit  to the Kingston group where development has been under, way for the past  two months, under the supervision of  Sir. H. C. Pollock.  Prior to  resuming in  October, development work- had been suspended  for about nine months, but before that  they had been  working  continuously  for about a year and a half under the  supervision of Mr. J?.  M.  Wells   who  had been connected with development  of the property from its earliest operations and was therefore well posted on  geological conditions 'which * in that  part of   tho   camp   are   not   a  little  puzzling and require patient study to  thoroughly understand.    Fortunately  Mr. Camsell during . his  study of the  camp  devoted1 considerable attention  to Kingston   ground,  "and"  his conclusions, it is believed served co inspire  fresh confidence in   those   in  charge,  and it is a pity that work  stopped  at  the time it did, for ,if it had- been continued and driven ahead at the present  vigorous rate, there is every reason to  believe that by. this time  the amount  of ore shown up and the grade of/it  would have put  the  Kingston  group  out of the prospect class and   made it  take rank with the genuine mines.of  'the province.    ... ���������  The Kingston group consists of four  claims,  the   Kingston,.-��������� War   Horse,.  Metropolitan and  Grand View.    They  are situated quite close  to  the.   town,  on the steep mountain side about 2,000  feet above the valley,  and when developed to the shipping or producing  point, they may be easily Vmd cheaply  equipped   for   shipping .purposes   by  tramway (either'aerial or gravity)  ..The group is owned by the Kingston  Gold and Copper Mining Co., Limited,  and tnpst of the stock is held in  Quebec, -although there is also considerable of it held:in..Victoriii,   B. C.    The  president.of the Company is W. A.  Marsh of Quebec, who paid a visit to  But the geology ,of this important  group can be stated in more authoritative terms, for Mr. Camsell, of the  Canadian geological survey says of  the Kingston group in his preliminary  report:  "The Wat-horse ore body lies on a  contact   of , massive   blue   limestone  with an andesite, sheet,  and not far  from the central core of monzonite.  The limestone'dips 30 degrees to the  west,'and carries irregular' masses of  cherty rock.,   It is cut, by irregular  dikes of andesite, which alter the limestone to anepidote-garnet-calciterock.  This constitutes the gangue of the ores'  and the ore  minerals are pyrrhobite,  chalcopyrite, aijsenopyrite and galena.  These aie scattered thiough the  gangue in varying proportions, pyrrhotite  forming with chalcopyrite the largest  percentage.    The chief  values are  in  copper, but this is supplemented by  some gold and silver." '  On the Kingston claim farther down  the bilk the workings are in the .sediments within a lew feet of the edge of  tho monzonite core. Injections from  the inorizonile have penetrated the  bedding-planes of the sediments, altering and mineralizing them as in the  case of the Nickel Plate mine.- The  chief values arc in gold.' which is  associated with arsenopyrite. Some  later dykes cut both the sediments and  igneous rocks, forming favorable localities for the concentration of the  gold by circulating waters.' The Kingston group of claims is very favorably  situated ' for .the: occurrence of ore  bodies, and in ore extensive development may prove their existence.''  WILL HEDLEY BE IN IT ?  Display   of   British    Columbia Ores At  ,   Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exhibition.  CANADIAN FORESTS  the property two years ago. The  Company was incorporated under the  Companies' Act of British Columbia,  and is therefore not only .'a Canadian  Company but a British Columbia  Company. The Kingston claim was  located by Mi\ Peter Scott among the  earliest of the canin.-ahd outside of  the Nickel Plate it/was one of the first  to receive any considerable amount of  development Avork inVthe; earlier days  of the camp, although the more or  less imperfect knowledge of the difficult geological problems that presented themselves Avas perhaps responsible  for some of the work not showing up  as good results as have since been obtained by the same parties.  The geology of this'portion-of the  camp, Avas a complex problem when  development was first undertaken  especially in view of the fact that the  andesite sheets occur in most irregular form-and have also been subjected  to the foldings and faults pecular to the  locality as well as by the intrusions of  later eruptives. Onx( fact, however,  aviis knoAvn, whiclr.was that the tilting  of the sedimentaries Avas towards this  Avestern face of the mountain upon  Avhich the property is situate thus  giving them'ah advantage over the  Nickel Plate in the matter of ore extraction ; for N. P. workings being on  the easter-u face of the. mountain with  the sedimentary strata dipping away  from them it is necessary for them to  follow itdoAvn the incline up which the  extracted ore must be hauled, Avhile  iii the Kingston it dips towards them.  The most important feature for them  to determine at present is the location  and trend of the ore-making eruptive  dykes.  .  DEVELOPMENT AVORK  The development work  now   under  way   on  the Kingston  itself   is   the  driving of a tunnel which  is now  in  over 35 feet cutting through an  andesite dyke to reach an ore body,  which  there is good'evidence  will  be found  immediately on the other side of it.  The existence of this ore body which  they are after is hot mere conjecture,  biit was found at another point higher-  up the mountain where this same dike  Avas prospected on the surface by an,  open cut and a tine ore body of good  value found lying against it.   This ore  had been sunk on for;some ten feet or j  more along the upper contact and was  found"to  be strong and continuous.  In view of- the fact that this  tunnel  had already been driven some distance  in the. dyke it was good policy to continue it Avhen   only a short distance  more required to be-driven  to reach  the point where the farther contact  should be cut, and when the ore-body  is encountered and cross-cut they will  be in position to figure on ore tonnage  and value of same.  The lower tunnel on the Kingston  has been driven about 180 feet a.rid  this too may be directed towards the  point where the same ore body should  be encountered which would give still  greater backs and an upraise on the  ore would open out a large amount of  ground for exti action.  On the War Horse no work is being  done at present, but a great deal of development work was done there a year  ago, when, in addition to the uncovering of some good ore bodies by surface  cuts, a tunnel was driven in about HO  feet on a contact of lime and eruptive  andesite. From this also was driven  a cross-cut tunnel, 2.") feet in one direction in very good ore and -10 feet in  the opposite direction, which was for  the most part in ore, but not of as  good grade. Above that also was a  large surface showing in an open cut  of fairly- good grade ore on what  appeared to be another contact.  We publish herewith a letter sent by  R. W. Brock, director of the Canadian  Geological. Survey,  to Presidents of  Boards   of Trade in  the   Kootenay,  which partially explains the intentions  t>f that department in the matter of an  exhibit of British Columbia orcs'.at'.the  Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exhibition to be  held in  Seattle next summer.'  encouraging to know  that ,the mines  department at Ottawa is favorable  to  the idea of  having  British Columbia  ores repiesc-nted, from'which we. may  also infer that either they or the ex-'  hihition authorities will,be responsible  for transportation charges in forwarding  specimens, for  exhibition,  but it  cannot be expected that they will do  everything, and mineral districts and  camps    that    expect    to   benefit   .by  such display of ores should   be  prepared to do something for themselves.  The final selection of ores to go on  exhibition, it is seen  by Mr.  Brock's  letter, will lie with'Mr. Broadbeht, who  has been'appointed by  the  mines .department- to undertake that  responsibility.   Where the selection will  be  made, it has not been stated.   Enough,  however,' is stated to show  that  each  community andeach mine owner  and  mine manager is. expected  to do  his  part   in  securing specimens.     Meanwhile _ Mr.  Brock ought  to be   communicated   with, so  that it may  lie  learned what provision is to  be  made  for the forwarding of specimens  from  this camp,     Mr.  Brock's  letter  is  as  follows,: ;    ���������  "Dear Su---T am sufficiently advanced  with the arrangements/with the  agricultural    department   regarding    the  mineral exhibit at Seattle for the work  to begin.   Not a great deal of time remains so that no delays:-must'.occur.-.  The boards of trade may make arrangements   for the: collection.     Our Mr.  Broadbent, who has had   wide exper-  ience'in   mineral  exhibitions,   will  be  detailed to look after the final selection  and display.    The exhibit at tin- close  of   the    Seattle    exhibition    will    he  brought to Ottawa for permanent exhibition in the splendid  new-national  museum.      Of course,   we  want,   the  Estimates of Their Area Greatly Reduced  of Late.  agricultural .department. wants, and  3*ou in British Columbia want the  best possible, exhibit.  "The specimens should be one' cubic  foot in size".- A few very large specimens of good quality, would be first  class things to have, one for instance  of silver lead ore, one of copper-gold  ore, etc. There should also be specimens illustrating the metallurgical  processes and products, building stones,  clays and clay products, and in fact  all natural economic substances.  "I think the best, plan will be for  the boards of trade to notify the managers who can supply such material of  Avhat i.s wanted, the excellence, desired,  etc,, and ask them to be on the lookout for such material, for it is not  always to be picked up at a moment's  notice. Then when we have a litt!"  time to select material we can send  Mr. Broadbent out to select the exhibit materia! from these picked sain  pies. Ho far as possible all parts of  the province should be represented.  Can you get the various boards of  trade busy on this at once. I am also  writing to A. U. Mackenzie, Rossland.  11: you have any suggestions I shall be  glad if you will let me have them."  R. W. BROCK.  Following   close on the reports  of  wide-spread  havoc from forest fires,  more destructive and extensive than  for several seasons   past,    comes  the  startling announcement that instead,  of the eight hundred or one  thousand  million    acres   of   forest   .land   with  It is | which Canada has heeu credited,  she  has only  about one  hundred million  acres of merchantable timber,   that is,  timber fit for pulpwood or saw-timber.  This, at least, is the estimate of Dr.  Judso'n- F. Clark, whose gem-ial knowledge and wide practical experience of  the subject entitle him to rank among  the first of Canadian i'oiesu-y experts.  In addition to serving for several years  as Forester to theProvince of Ontario,,  Dr. Clark has had several years exper-'  ience in the timber business in British  Columbia, in addition to considerable  service under the TJ. S. Forest Service.  Dr. Fernow, head of the Faculty of  .Forestry of the University of Toronto,  is   not quite  so  pessimistic,   placing.  Canada's area of merchantable timber  at some two hundred million acres.  How far this lemoves Canada's timber supply from the "inexhaustible"  stage in which Canadians have so long  been accustomed to place it may he  readily surmised. It must, moreover,  be remembered' thai the world's demand for. timber is yearly inci easing,"  while the sources of supply are vearly  becoming more restricted. In a very  few years Canada will stand almost  alone as a timber-exporting country���������  alone, at any rate, on tliis continent.  The imperative necessity,  therefore,  of ihusba'nding  this country's  timber  wealth is at once apparent, and  it is a  necessity'that cannot be. met by indiv-'  idual effort.". To meet the case,   there  must he action   by  the  governments,  both   federal  and;;provincial,- iu  the  direction of  the conservation  of the  timber   wealth    in  their   possession.;'  fortunately, by far the greater proportion of it is still in their  hands.     This  must mean more adequate protection  of existing forests from  fire and  the .  introduction of a system  of scientific  forestry which will bring about such  treatment, of the forests as will ensure  their producing, the greatest possible  crop of timber, to say nothing   of  the  reforestation of denuded area and  the .  planting   tip of  waste  area not now  bearing forests.  Within the last thirty years, exclusive of 160S, 195G persons are known  to have perished on this continent in  forest fii-es or fires caused by burning  forests. The death list for 190S  amounts to 296, perhaps even more.  The average annual loss of life from  this cause has thus been aboutseventy-  two.  WANTS INFORMATION  Dec. 8th, 10l)S  SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.  IN A XEAV PLACE  But there is now under way development in another quarter-, which has  hitherto been, to the general public a  terra incognita. This is upon the  Metropolitan claim across the gulch  on a plain steep hill-side in full view  of the town, and this so far has been  attended with most encouraging results, for not only are good surface  values in evidence, but the prospect  for large ore bodies appears excellent.  Here the 'country rock shows an  isolated area, of ��������� garnetite with frequent andirregular andesite intrusions.  Tho surface outcrops of ore cover a  .large area of ground and the gossan  pans Avell at all points, biit particularly so in proximity to the. andesite  Continued on Page Four.  Miss Davies, teacher of  the  Hedley  school,  acceiling   to  the wishes of a  number of pupils and parents will give  a school entertainment in   Fraternity  Hall on Saturday evening,  Dec.   19th.  The    programme    will  be  altogether  juvenile   and   will   conclude with  a  Christmas tree.    It is not her iuten-  tion to ask contributions this year towards the Christmas  tree   to provide  presents   for   the   children,   but the  parents are asked to bring along   anything which they may feel disposed to,  but those- must all be in   early  on  the  afternoon of the entertainment.     An  admission   fee will he   charged,  the  proceeds of which will go towards paying expenses of the entertainment and  purchasing candies for the children.  The balance of $10.70 left over from  last year has been  turned over to bo  used toAvards this end.  Victoria, B. C.  The Editor,  Will you be good  enough  to  make  public   for  the  information of those  interested in mining   in  your district  that I shall  be glad to  receive  particulars of progress made  dining  190S  at all district mining properties. What  I wish to  be supplied with  is information relative to development work  done,   plant and   machinery'   put in,  ore production (if any), and such other  details as would be of general interest.  It will not be  practicable for me  to  visit all the mining camps before  preJ  paring the several  reviews' and summaries of mining in British   Columbia  in 190S, 1 have undertaken to write, so  your district can only be given   notice  in proportion to the information those  immediately    interested    in    it   shall  supply    me   with.     Communications  should be addressed to me, in  care  of  Strathcona Hotel, Nelson,   and  to be  of most service  should  reach   me  by  14th inst,  as  several  summaries will  have to he completed and i nailed by 18th  inst.    However, even if received  later  information will  be used in some of  my contributions,  so if it cannot be  sent by the date first above mentioned  I shall still b-.?  able  to give  it  sonic  publicity.

From the day that the House of  Lords bowled out   Gladstone's  scheme of Irish home rule,  the  ulta-radical wing of the Liberal  party in (-"treat Britain has been  voAA'ing vengeance upon it,  and  while the Liberal party through  its leaders has at different times  threatened to shear the House  of Lords of its power  to stand  in  the   way  of legislation,  no  definite scheme  has ever  been  laid    before    the    public     for  accomplishment   of    the    end  which they have sought.   Noav,  however, they appear  to have'  reached the point where talk is  to  he  .supplemented by action,  and while no detailed scheme has  yet readied this side, cable despatches to  the dailies  indicate  that    in   numbers  the   British  House of Lords is to be decreased  one    third.      The    basis   upon  which this thinning out is to be  affected is  left  to   mere   conjecture, and will be until fuller  details are given ; and whether  heredity Avill continue to be the  qualification for a seat  in the  upper chamber is also unknown.  The decapitation of one third of  its present numerical strength  is certainly heroic treatment to  begin with, and it is little  Avon-  der that the public on this side  the water are   very curious to  know  upon  what basis it is all  to be brought about.  That a little trimming for the  upper house might be a good  thing is readily admitted, for it  certainly does seem anomalous  that a country in which the  people are in such absolute control as"they are understood to  be in the British isles, should  have a governing body the  members of which may attend  or absent themselves year after  year with no restraint but their  own sweet .wills. If as Tennyson says,  "That man is best conservative  Wholops the mouldering branchesofi!"  the movement to withdraw the  right of dilletanti peers to con-  followers.  Nevertheless the British House  of Lords has noble traditions  and au honorable record of  services for the preservation of  the rights and liberties ol: the  British people���������rights and liberties which they and not the  Commons led the way in wresting;' from the sovereign. The  upper house has always acted  as a check upon hasty and ill-  advised legislation. They were  \vise men Avho in framing tho  constitution and the Jaws of the  country made provision to protect the people from their oavd  folly, for often that "many-  headed monster thing" must be  saved from itself.  In  Canada too we  have an  upper house to perform for us  the    same    functions  that  the  House of Lords does for   the  British    parliament,    although  there is with us  no   hereditary  right to sit in it.     Nevertheless  like the British House of Lords  our senators are removed from  immediate influence   and pressure on the part of the electorate.   Academically, the qualification for our senate is supposed  to be ability and worth, but unfortunately   there   is    in    our  system a Aveakness���������the  weakness of party bias.   From party  bias too has arisen the discontent that at   times   gave  rise  to the clamor for its abolition;  and   unfortunately N too, party  exigency is of ten i-esponsible for  the appointment of men to  our  senate who should never be  in  it, for often they?are men who  were never intended by  either  nature or training to rank higher  than    fourth-rate    Avard     po  liticians.  Canadian Liberals when in  opposition called for reform of  the senate and in their 1893 platform made it one of their planks.  When tAvitted with failure to  carry out the pledge they flippantly answer that Province  has reformed it���������meaning that  death had removed so many of  the older men that the appointment of friends of their own to  fill their places had given them  the control of the senate politically. Now this kind of  thing tends to lower both the  traditions and the character of  our upper house, and the sooner  some comprehensive scheme of  reform is devised and put into  execution the better for all concerned.  The best scheme of reform  that Ave ean see is to have an  election for the senate held  septennially, and at this election have only about tAventy  per cent of the members go up  for election, with rigid requirements for a candidate's ability  and uprightness, and his maintenance of an unsullied reputation during his tenure of  public office.  tliey remember sundry fierce  mayoralty contests in Nelson in  Avhich John was anything but  a champion of theirs.     .    '  THE BANK OF  , The size of the socialist vote  in the United States at the recent presidential election has j  called forth but little comment, yet -it is highly important. The socialists declared  that they would poll more than  a. million votes; they actually  obtained little more than  half  *  that number. The increase Avas  about 130,000 over their 400,000  .votes in 1904 Socialism has apparently; not yet made a deep  impression upon native Americans. It has no attractions for  the great mass of farmers, judging from the available election  returns,',.-while to the average  skilled mechanic, socialistic doc1  trines seem like an effort to take  aAvay his opportunities to gain  material success. The lack of  interest in socialism in Canada,  as shown by the recent dominion  elections and taking the country  as a whole, is far more marked  than in the United States. Of  all the'provinces of the dominion British Columbia alone  showed any real interest in socialism, and then only in widely  separated constituencies.���������Nelson News  Paid Up Capital ������1,000,000 Sterling.

At all events the  Christian Guardian takes the  better part of an editorial  column to throw bouquets at  him. John certainly did surprise his friends because of  the attitude which he took on  the saloon question at Prince  Rupert. And John was right,  in that matter too, as he often  is. But doesn't it sound funny  to hear, the Christian Guardian  discuss John Houston in this  fashion. What do the W. C.  T. U.  ladies think of it when  Washington, D, C, Dec. 5.���������Last  bulletin gave forecasts of disturbance  to cross continent 6 to 10, warm wave  5 to 9, cool wave 8 to 14. Temperatures of live days centring on the  warm wave of this disturbance is expected to average lower than usual,  very low in the southwestern states.  The storm centre will pass far southward and the force of the storms will  be greater than usual from its start  on Pacific coast to its finish on Atlantic coat. Unusually severe weather will accompany this disturbance.  Next disturbance will reach Pacific  coast about 10th, cross Pacific slope by  close of 11th, great central valleys 12th  to 14th, east states 15. Warm wave  will cross Pacific slope about 10. great  central valleys 12, eastern states 14th.  Cool wave will cross Pacific slope  about 13, great central valleys 15th,  eastern states 17th.  This disturbance will bring severe  storms. The causes are similar to  those that brought the destructive  storms of Nov. 23rd of which I gave  complete warning in my weekly bulletins and monthly charts. Therefore  be on the lookout from Dee. 13 to 18  for dangerous storms and severe  weather.        **  The storm centre will pass well to  the southward in the central valleys  and its cold Avave will spread cold  weather all over the continent.

He was a pioneer of this district and  left considerable real estate and  money. He left a' will appointing  James Poggi his executor.���������Ledge.  Rev. R. W. Hibbert, pastor of the  Methodist church, Penticton, occupied  the pulpit in Hedley on Sunday- night  last. It seemed like old times to have  Mr. Hibbert among us again, for during the time he was formerly pastor  in Hedley.he made many Avarm friends.

Brown, government agent, and  gold commissioner at Fairview, Avas  in town last week on official business.  He was collecting data for his annual  report on mining in this district and  for that purpose visited the office of  the Daly Reduction Co. and interviewed other mine owners of the camp.  The return of E. W. Coulter to the  lower Similkameen will enable the  school to be reopened there as it Avill  bring the school population up to the  required number again. The closing  of the lower school for lack of pupils  has been a serious handicap for W. J.  Manery whose children were thus deprived of the advantage of a school.  J. Townsend, miner at the Nickle  Plate, was taken with pneumonia last  week and Dr. McGregor had him removed at once to Hedley, where he  has since made very satisfactory progress towards recovery. The high altitude is extremely unfavorable to ailments of that kind and removal to a  lower altitude is the first requisite to a  cure  Devlin was well known on the West'  Fork of Kettle River wheie' he resided  for a time at "Westbridge and" owned  important interests on "Wallace Mountain. He also owned the War Eagle  claim, a very likely property on the  ridge between the north and south  forks of Rock Creek adjoining Dayton  Camp; The people in those camp's will  be interested in knowing what disposition the executor will make of  these peopurties. Devlin at one time  made a lot of money out of the Minnie  Ilealy claim in "Montana. He was  somewhat eccentric but very interesting withal.  T. H. Rotherham has the agency for  the "Underwrite! s' fire extinguisher"  a chemical arrangement manufactured  in Montreal. The extinguisher consists of a brass tank with a capacity  of three gallons in which is placed the  charge of soda and-acid. By turning  the tank upside-down the acid and  soda are brought, in contact and a  volume of carbon dioxide, gas generated, creating on tin* tank an estimated  pressure of 350 lbs. This directed by  a small piece of hose and nozzle  against any incipient fire Avill quickly  put it out. In a place like Hedley  that is wholly unprotected so far as  fire fighting equipment is concerned,  they should find ready sale.  King Kennedy had a good house in  Hedley on Thursday night last when  he gave his performance.   The moving pictures shown last year were repeated and appeared to be in about as  good shape as ever, with "Mrs. Brown's  Dog" quite as interesting and  funny  as befoie.   To last year's repertoire in  the moving picture line was added an  entertaining sketch  "The Counterfeiters" and some others of merit.   The  pictures were clear, distinct and steady,  and if   this   part   of   the  programme  were lengthened   out materially and  some other features shortened or eliminated it would make the show all the  better.   This moving picture business  is the coming form of entertainment,  for it can be made both  entertaining  aud  instructive.    Take  that ' "Oyster  Industry-'   picture     as   an    example.  What a small percentage of those who  Avitness the exhibition of that series of  moving pictures would ever  have an  opportunity   of     knowing   anything  about how these things are done.    In  precisely the same   manner   those in  old London who never, in  their lives  were   outside  the   hearing   of    how-  bells are   enabled   to    witness  scenes  here in Western  Canada that are so  familiar to us, being part of the daily  round, and "all  in  the day's  work,"  and yet would appear most Avbnderful  to them.   Give us plenty of that form  of entertainment  Mr.  Kennedy  and  you can count on a good house   for  each visit.

Mr. J. A. Brown of the Keremeos  Trumpet, and Mrs. Brown, paid a visit  to Hedley on Sunday last, returning  on Monday morning. Mrs Brown delighted a few of her Hedley friends  who were privileged to hear her sing a.  couple of sacred pieces on Sunday  evening in the parlor of the Hotel Similkameen. Keremeos is indeed fortunate in having a lady of Mrs.  Brown's musical attainments. Hedley people have had one opportunity  of hearing her in public, and they hope  to have other favors of a like nature  later on.  A few weeks ago Ave made reference  to an option on this property being  given to Henry Bahrs. The time given him avius only thirty days, and this  having expired there was no inclination on the part of the oAvners to extend it. Last Aveek J. J. Marks decided  on behalf of himself and his brother,  T. H. to make a trial of it and accordingly obtained from his partners, Paul  Brodhagen and James Murphy an option on their inter-ests.  By mealis of his brother's connection  with eastern capital there is a fair  show for Mr. Marks placing the property either for cash or on a stock  proposition. The unfortunate dry  season which prevented them getting  a decent mill run from the surface  rock, turned out inconvenient for the  owners and prevented them realizing  from their investment at a time when  they needed it most.  Those Avho are best acquainted Avith  the property have every confidence  that the ore is there in sufficient qaan-  tities and tho values likewise. It just  requires the necessary amount of capi-  tal.to prove the ore body more fully  and to get it in shape to extract values  and make it pay its Avay, and the  amount required Avould not be very  much.

Several open cuts  have also been made at various points  on the hill side and if things continue  to improve as they are doing, manager  Pollock will soon have found a new  mine for the company and a big one.  Upon the geology of this hill face Mr.  Pollock is not prepared to dogmatize.

It enumerated five addresses to which  Pioneers were sent on the week preceding the electon, evidently fancying  that we were not in a position to know  that there were more.  When the Pioneer accuses the  Gazette of trying to hide behind the  postmasters it is mistaken.; We never-  expressed any opinion about whether  **��������� the postmasters put the leaflets in or  did not. In fact we prefer to believe  that they are innocent and that the  guilt lies where it was originally  placed, for when people prevaricate  in one instance they are not to be believed in others.  The Gazette's veracity is in no way  involved in the question. It relied  wholly upon information given it and  it is more convinced now than ever of  the substantial correctness of that information.   .

East, an old time mining pioneer of 25 years experience, is at present staying in Nelson where he has  just concluded a big timber deal with  ii firm in the east. Yesterday he gave  a Daily News .reporter, a.most interesting intervieAV. Just.over 25 years ago  he was prospecting with very moderate  luck in California and hearing of big  finds in Southern British Columbia he  packed up his prospecting tools and  came north. For two or three years  he travelled over.a great part of the  Boundary country and in 1887 located  the Crown Silver mine and in 1891 he  recorded the Mother Lode at Deadwood  from which such satisfactory reports  are now corning. In the case of this  latter mine Mr. East had great difficulty in proving that the gold .was  there. The local assayers could find  no traces of the metal and laughed at  0  (fil  SHKUlEX   UUir.D-N'G, HOCOHTOX,  MICH.   U. S. A. If,  him for his opinion that he had struck  the real stuff and struck it rich, but  with an old-timer's eye for color he  was not to be convinced tha,t he was  mistaken1 and sentLsome Of the quartz  down to an assayer in Spokane with  the result that his opinion was completely vindicated. After selling the  Mother Lode Mr. East struck for camp  McKinney and staked a claim beside  the Cariboo and the Amelia which ran  parallel to each other. However, the  lode ran lengthways and this venture  was a dead failure. The reason for the  feminine name of the latter was that  the four men who discovered the two  mines had not sufficient money to pay  registration fees and to provide. the  grubstake for .the winter and they borrowed tho necessary cash from a good  natured woman friend and in gratitude  named the second claim after her.  Perhaps the story of most interest  to N'elsonites i.s that of the discovery  of the Silver King mine on Toad mountain. It appears that Nels Deinars,  whose death was announced in yesterday's Daily Noavs, and two men named  Oaks and "Binmett respectively set out  on a prospecting expedition from the  Pend d'Oreille river with the usual outfit of flour, bacon, frying pan, etc.  After a few weeks together friction  arose between Oaks and Deinars on tho  one hand and Erntnetton the other-land  it Avas decided that the last named  should take all the remaining food,  the frying pan,"etc., and that he should  go in one direction and the other tAvo  men in another. Enimett prospected  alone for some days and then owing to  having run short of supplies went into  Colville, a town in Washington about  two miles from Marcus. There he shoAV-  ed some gold dust, Avhich he had carried with him for some time, and told  a story of a wonderful  mine he had  located   near where this  town   now  stands    On the strength of this yarn  he managed to borrow $20 or $30   and  went off, ostensibly to raise money  to  work  the   wonderful   mine   he   had  spoken of. Naturally Emmett never returned.   However, the Hall brothers  hearing of the gold dust,  fitted up a  complete prospecting outfit and set out  to find the golden spot.     The party  carefully prospected every inch of the  ground where the supposed gold Avas,  but found no trace of.color.  Becoming  disheartened they were  about to return but one morning the brothers Hall  Avere going over Toad mountain when  one of them picked up a, piece of rock  to throw at a grouse, but struck by its  appearance he .kept the stone,  took it  with him to Colville and had it assayed.  The figures showed such a- high percentage of lead'and silver that the tAvo  brothers went back  to the  mountain  and opened up the Silver King mine.  Mr. East is now spending most of his  time   experimenting   with   different  classes of apples on  his  ranch at the  Boundarv.  1  GEO. KIRBY, nanager.  First Class in Every  Kespect.
