' ' '    ���������  Big Gold Strike.  , A big .strike has just been made in  the Oalico (Ca!.) mining district., within  sight of lln- old wider mill. There is  gold in large quantities; and between  ,20 and 30 claims have been staked out:  T. R.

Great finds of gold have been made  in Alaska and ,ovei*   the   frontier   in  British territory, according  to the. re.-  ports_of the U. S. Government surveyors who have just returned from their  labors in that   northern   field.    The  engineering parties' have made magnetic,  topographic and trigonometric  surveys in the supposed vicinity of the  boundary   line.       Mr.   "VV.   McGrath,  chief of the ptirfcy which surveyed the  Yukon and Unuk River region; says'  that the territory drained   by   these  rivers abounds in gold   fields awaiting  development.     Miners are. now  prospecting for gold in British  territory.  The .Canadian   Government    i������   vary  liberal t/5 miners and any man by obtaining a miner's license (.$3 'a year) is  given permission'to go .anywhere and  try his hick in this conosb wirh nature  and the'elements.   There is now quite  a colony nf miners iu  this territory.  An instance of the fruitfulness of the  river basin  is  evidenced by the  face  that lust summer one man took'fioni  one creek ������lfj,000 worth of gold in three  mouths.,There is not. a creek or stream  in the territory but litis been visited by  piospc-ctors and results have been good.  One-mine that is now being worked by  faoine American cajutali&th put on the  'market last year almost $700,000 worth  of gold.      ' "  On the Yukon River in the interior,  Mr. McG rath says, is the greatest future  of this new country. The richest soil  is on the, American side. The miners  general 1 j- work from May to October,  but winter work is not impossible nor  imremnnerative, although it,is difficult  and arduous. He .stated one case that  illustrates this. The main stroanis,and  tributaries are, of course, frozen in the  winter months, and  the  winter is; as  ft J? jl I'D il  NEWS  COFFINS  CAR MED  IN  STOCK.  Aimvr rot: kixgi:u si:winu maukini-s.

THINGS SAID AND.DONE.ABOUT," *  .   TOWN. ���������     ���������  [BV   DIOGKVES.]     .  ������ According to the Nakusp Ledge Mr.  Far-well will have "some great fun" in  ltevelstoke after next month', when the  Privy Council's verdict will  reinstate  him as lord of the manor, from which  exalted position  the land  robbers of  the Dominion Government have been  trying to oust him for so many years.  The Ledge says Mr. Farvvell is certain  of his suit terminating favorably, and  that, tlie deeds issued by the Dominion  Goveinntentwillnnt.be recognized by  the victor.   Then, I suppose, "the fun'"  will commence.    Farvvell vvill proceed  to depopulate the town by ejecting till  those who hold their lots under a. Do-,  minion title, especially Mr. Mara', who  bought a considerable number at the,  Governtnoiit sale.   The Ledge gets its  information from Mr. II. N. Coursier,  who  may  or may vnut be in Mr. Farwell's confidence. 'liut J can't reconcile  Mr.   Coursier's concluding statement,  that" the  town will take.anevvlea.se  of life and ultimately.become, one of  the chief ceutret, in the interior,'*��������� with  the action he says Farvvell will fcike in  ca'-c he wins.   Tiie Dominion Government;'will recognize all Farvvell titles,  but he. (if he wins; will compel chose  who hold Dominion titles to buv their  lots,'over again  or "git."   If Farvvell  does this he will give Lhe town a bigger  black eye  tha'n it1 ever wore yet, and,  j-o far from the townsite dispute being  settled, it would only be about to commence.  As the Ledge says, " there vvill  be, soinc great fun over the titles to  lots,", but many who have "put all they  possessed into improvements will look  on a man who will do that in a diiler-  lighn to what Mr. Coursier does.   JSviolently Mr. Coursier holds Farwell fit let,  to his property', but thoie are others in  town'who sincerely hope'Mr. Farwell  will not win.  HELP WANTED!

R. lots ar,  the statioi]Li.,_ Although not ye^actually  put on the market, it is pretty well  known that the low est figure at which  tiie'se lots can be. obtained is no less a  sum than S2o0. Considering that' "the  lots are only 25 feet in width, it is  within the mark to say that the price  asked is (iitUO too- much. Many people  who have built on d.p.R. properly,  rather th,m,,.pay hitch an, exorbitant  price/wiil -remove their houses on to  the "smelleiv estate or else into'the  street. They say there is no law' to  prevent their going on.the street, as  the town is not incorporated. "People  in the lower, town think otherwise. Bui  -whet lier the law allows them or tuot,  some of then*, will haul their houses ou  the street (which divides the C.P.R,..  aud smelter properties) rather than*  pay the,C.P.R. from JSl'.'sO to .$'100 for a  strip of 'land just wide enough to build  a house on.

The closets used by  the girls and boys at the i-chool are  placed back to back, with only a single  board partition between. This is a  very bad arrangement any way, but I  am told there are two holes in this partition (one a knot-hole, the other cut  by the boys with their knivec), so that  n:it only isc the. vei y select language-  used by some of the boys heard on thu  other side, but one of Ihe holes in the  partition h,is generally a spying eye  fitted to it.    if Cue trustees will correct  u  A.

Often in formations that have been passed by as of no  use, gold' has been found in paying,  ijuanlities, and whenever prospectors  co)i)e across anything that is new to  them lit'may not be tin unprofitable  undertaking to get an assay made of  ihe rock. , ,  Speaking   of   the   mountain    called -  "Cinnabar" Mountain, in Nevada, the  Taeoma Norllnecsl Electrician, quoting  the Kennedy (Nev.) Ncio Era, says:  '  - *  The early   prospectors who   visited  this then remote portion of'the world  in search of silver in white quartz mis-, *  took the red oxide tio.it to he cinnabar,  never dreaming of the "precious gold  therein associated, and thus the tower-'  ing peak  bears  the misnomer to this  day.   The "one-idea" prospector of 30  years ago has learned to look  for gold  not only in glittering  crystals, but in.  'every, hue and form of rock, until now'  they tell you  " gold is where  you And f  it." The cinnabar-like-rock ofKennedy   -  is'gold ixssociated wjth iron  rust, com- ;  monly speaking in a free state. , l  Apropps'of   thi.s  short' dissertation ' '  on the mistaken ideas of years gone by,"  wo recall the hi^toryof the White.Pine   *  excitement,' wlie'n "thousands   wended ���������,.,  their 'way  to  that silvei   excitement'.,   f  Nearly all the travel vvas  through ,the ',  canyon * in "which  fclio  town of.'Ely is'  situated, and half way up the defile in   "  rhe mountain range, wagons rolled and  pedestrains trod over an  immense red,  oxide ledge that  crossed the' canyon"  and made oh each side'hito'cliifs of'the  same   character. -   No   attention   was    ,  paid to  the rock, for, it had'not, the  characteristics   of   the quartz, of California and Virginia City, or"the ruby  of Austin.   Four years ago an"inquisi- '  tive prospector had a sample of'the ore  assayed, which act led to,the location  of the Joanna and Chainman groups of  gold mines, considered - by many tlie  most pi'ointsing'1mines'on'the Coast.'

CLEVER BLOODHOUNDS.  THE.SMART   WORK DONE BY   THEM  IN TRACKING CRIMINALS-  ' WHY  THE  SMELTEK  WAS  ALLOWED TO DECAY.     .  Gbe.vt  indignation   lias, often been  expressed  at  the action oi* the "Revelstoke Smelter Co. in allowing their fine  buildings and  macliinery  to  fall   int..  decay.    While we.thiuk.it would have  been wiser had the company employed  a  responsible   man'to  look  after   the  premises and   had   them kept'in go,.;.]  repair;   it   must be, admitted that.cn-  cmustances have not been favotable to  operatijig.the smelter.

But ' probably   the* greatest unpftdi-*  mc.nl to the Rinelter Co. keeping then-  property in repair was (and still is) the  ���������-���������uncerta'intv   of  the   tenure   on which  thev hel'd*their land.    Tlie Dominmn  Government deeded 320*, acre*  to the  company on'condition thtit the smelter  was built j but as this land is included  in the 1175 acres taken  up and registered by  Farvvell before the C. P. R.  came  through, it necessarily depends  upon tbe verdict to be rendered by the  Privy'Council next month, whether tlie  Dominion Government bad any.right  to "ive-the land or whether Farwell is  theP legal   owner.      Mr.   Farvvell   has  always said that' he- would -not recognize the company's right to,those 320  . acre?;   he litis gone even further and  '    threatened to " pitch the smelter into  -the river" when-he comes into his own.  Now  it  would.be a foolish company  that would expend any^money in keep-  '    ing in repair a building whose chances -  of"finding a'watery grave rested on the  result of, a lawsuit..

The party leturned on lhe  Lytton Thursday evening, connecting  with the west-hound train.  The river is falling very low I his year  and tho boats ;iro getting stuck cm  sandbaLs earlier than usual. 'But this  is mostly owing to changes in tiie  channel. The tremendous waters which  swelled the river in June and July  formed new bars where the chaunel  used to be, and river pilots have not  yet got tho location of some of these.  The Lytton has been on twice, both  going and coming, and on her up trip  she had to land some of her cargo in  the shape of sacks of ore before she  could float off. The channel is now  forming in the sandbar at the mouth  of tho river, and the steamboat company expect no further trouble at that  point. Trains are i un over the R. ScA.  L.

It is understood that his principal  busir.ess in Cttawa is in regard to the  land dispute between the Dominion  and Provincial Governments..  While in "Winnipeg* Mr. Davie stated  that the Pacific province was beginning  to recover from Uie commercial depression, and that there was a prospect of (  considerable railway building in the  near future." During the coming session  of the Legislature measures would be  introduced to encourage the building of  railways to the placer country in the  north, and reports from Cariboo'were  exceedingly satisfactory as to the  results of hydraulic operations. There  was promise of considerable railway  construction in Biitish Columbia, as in  addition to the contemplated extension  of the C.P.R. systems in the Kootenay  and pkauagan districts, south of the  main line, there was a projected ..road  from Ashcroft northward -into the  Cariboo country, while the promoters  of the. British Pacific were also manifesting much earnestness lately.  Laptieaii and -Slocan. Ore. Wanted.  -A.

C. enterprises.' Mr.  .Moore came west under the. impression  that business was very much depressed  at the coast, and he was agreeably disappointed. " I am well satisfied," said  Mr. Moore, "with my trip, and so is  Mr. Clcve. We have=*made arrangements to invest largely in business  enterprises on the coast,* and next  spring will see tlie commencement of-  anew Canadian industry, which cannot  -but result favorably to the Dominion  and ourselves. Our initial expenses  will amount to ������8,000, and before we  have completed all <irrang"nu*nts we  will have expended fully -C.'iO.OOO. It is  too early foi- us to 1'iilly unfold our  scheme, but you can* rest' assured lii.it  when it is unfolded we will not Iks the  only ones in the field."  Mr. Moore will take the first ste/inier  for England, and Mr. Clove, alter completing the necessary arrangements at  tho coast, will follow in a week. The  Canada-Australia line forms a big factor in the projected enterprise.  Sealing Fleet 'All Home.  The last of the Victoria sealing fleet  arrived on Saturday.

Improving Our Schools.

Last week's prices for bar silver have  been kept up during Ihe week. Friday  saw a, drop of fie. fiom the previous  day's quotation, closing at 03������c. per oz.  On Tuesday there was a big jump to  die, but Wednesday's figures had got  down to CW/c, with a further drop on  Thursday to (Ktyc. per oz.  they had enough ore in the works and  in sight, the composition of which was  accurately  determined   so   that   they  were sure'of a lengthy run, the furnace  :(S0 tons' capacity /per day) would  be  started, and kept running.  This is good  news.for the Lardeau as well as for the  JSlpcan. Now, is.the time for the owners  Tor the numerous/" mines-"showing huge'*  bodies' of ore to get it out, even if, it  has to_he packed >lown^ i*xl00-lb.*-,bags,  jind.sliow the enterprisubg "cofiipany-aC;  Pilot" Bay  what" they "have andSvhat  j they can supply. ,  Again, as before'in these columns,  we must urge on prospect-owners tliat  what a smelter wants is .ore, and not  merely ��������� descriptions of the wonderful  value 'of; the leads, although those  'descriptions may be true enough. A  iiirha.ee cannot, work on paper or verbal  promises any more than a newspaper  can. The former must have, ore .and a  constant supply of it, while the Latter,  strange as it may appear to many of  our advertisers, must occasionally have  a little money. i    i r  ��������� Don't sit on your claims with a shotgun and wait until the Government  makes a trail or" wagon-road from the  smelter up to your mine, but get the  ore out now; .the Pilot Bay Co. 'will  gladly buy all you have of almost every  sort, .but "they require to know what  tho ore is composed of, and" how much  you can .supply. There is no doubt  whatever that low-grade ores can be  economically and successfully treated  in a B. C. smelting establishment. Not  that the high-grade ores cannot be so  treated also, but a B. C. smelter can  and will make a handsome profit on the  working of our low-grade ores which,  at the present price of silver, will not  pay to send to the States.  It is found by practical smelters that  a mixture of different qualities of ore  give better and more economical results  than that from one mine alone, as the  g.uigue of one is very often valuable  tor "fluxing the- ganguo, of the other.  But this information depends upon the  chemist's analysis, and for this reason,'  ic being as much trouble and expense,  to sample aud analyze 10 tons as 1,000  tons, it is advisable to have a large  quantity of ore of known composition  in stock and in sight before starting up  a furnace. There are other smelters'  reasons besides thai- given above for  preferring a mixture of ore to one kind  only, but they need not be considered  here.  Although only one blast furnace is  actually ready for work at Pilot Bay,  three or four more can and will be.  erected as soon as the ore in sight will  warrant that action ; so once moie we  appeal to those, who have good properties and want to make money by them,  to got the ore out and send it to the  Pilot Bay company who will be only  too glad to treat foi any quantity that  can ho regularly supplied. Take a hint  Iroin some of the Slocan mines now  shipping ore ; don't wait for the Government to extract the ore for you, but  get at, it yourselves, tiie more, of it and  the. sooner it is produced the better for  all parties. "        '  Mr. Holdich will gladly give what in-  forniation and assistance he can in describing any ore that may be. submitted  to him,'and' stating whether it is a desirable ore for smelting by itself or not.  Wo most sincerely w'ish the Pilot  Bay'Smolting Co. every success, and  hail the undertaking as an omen of  better times for the whole of the  Province.  \ The Ledge, says thet Lytton'has re:  fused to carry Mountain Chief ore,*=be-'  cause of the advance charges not being  arranged. . ,   ,  Four men who are going to put in  the winter mining on Gold Stream, Big  Bend, left here''yesterday.

Eight men will be employed through  the coining winter and the work will  be prosecuted vigorously under foreman 'John Sweeney, who is also one of  the. proprietors. Should they meet with  no accident we may,rely upon seeing a  big showing in the spring as the product of the* winter's work.  Ore shipments from the Slocan mines  for the Omaha smelter are 'becoming a  regular feature at Revelstoke station.  The staff of workmen here have just  completed handling 800 tons from the  Alpha mine, at Silverton. On Thursday the Lytton brought up 30 tons of  Silver King ore, and yesterday the  Kootenai arrived with (50 tons from the  Mountain Chief mine. The shipment  from this mine to Omaha will be 500  Cons. The Slocan Star is now ready to  forward 1,000 tons, all of which will be  transferred to C.P.R. cars at this point.  George Terry berry, who has been in  charge of the placer mining operations  at Carnes Greek for the Carries Creek  Mining Co., arrived down on Thursday.  He brought between 7 and 8 ounces of  clean gold, all in small fiat nuggets,  and worth about $140. They are working the sand and,gravel at the bottom  of the canyon, having turned a portion  of the creek aside by means of ar wing-  dam. They have reached a depth of 8  feet, but have not struck bedrock yet.  The claim will be worked all winter.  They have had several misfortunes.  They found their tools had been carried away during their absence and a  lot of their supplies missing.   -Owing  DENTISTRY.  D' R. H. E. HALL,,of.Kamloops, wift  he 'in.

Wood, a retiring shareholder.'-  The company is said to be able to meet ,  all obligations.   , This  company built   '  the Stoney Creek* bridge,  tendered for  the'Fraser River bridge, and have been- "  mentioned as the builders of the pro-",  posed steel bridge for the C.P.R. over  the Columbia at Revelstoke.  to the heavy rains the creek rose and  carried away their wing-dam three  times.  The party who left here last.Saturday  on horseback for Big Bend, under the  guidance of Win. Kirkun, among whom  were J. Atkins, .Jack Cliinan aud Ed.  Wilson, all from Kaslo, and Geo. E.  Milligan, Chicago, returned to town  yesterday. They had been up to inspect the Sol ILolden mine, a hydraulic  claim, located on the Columbia a few  miles above Smith Creek, with a view  of making a purchase. They were very  favorably impressed with llie property  and it is understood that a deal is just  about consummated for a transfer of  ownership. The only objection seems  to be the cost of transportation, which  could be lessened considerably if they  intend conducting operations on a large  scale. The same parties have, valuable  hydraulic property in Cariboo. Sol  liolden and Chas. Norleans, two of the  present owners, are in town. They arrived down hy boat on Thursday.  A Case for the Police.  An arrival from  Carnes Creek' this  week   brings down a complaint about'  "rustlers" of tools and grub' who have  been'-operating in  that locality.   The  chief olfender m this particular has left   '  the country and none too soon, we are-,'  told, to avoid art est.   But a pal of his  is still in the neighliorhood and the'  police should pay him a visit.   They  may find  some of the tools used in;  building the trail this summer which  disappeared mysteriously. There is very  little encouragement for a man to pack  supplies to a claim and when he goes  up and wants to use them  to find that  someone has come Along and helped,  himself.   In the case in question  the"  owner ��������� found   upon  arrival   that  his  cache had been entered and grub iind"  tools taken.    He found   most  of   the  tools, but the grub  w.-is gone beyond  recovery. . ���������       ,  GENERAL JEWS.  John P.

Gold mining on the Saskatchewan  river is not panning out particularly  well, but some of the men are making  wages. From $1.50 to 6*-t a day per  man has heen taken out.
