(From Our Own Correspondent.)  (J. P. Wolley is hunting bear and refuses to  admire mineral.  The trail is now complete from Eldorado clear  through to Cody creek/  No mail has arrived here .for 2 weeks.   Where  , is the postoffice inspector ?  E. C. Carpenter^ Jack McGillivray and Angus  McGillivray have struck itnear the Payne mine.  The Three Forks hotel is now in running,  order. The boys are getting "bit" drinks and  are glad of it., '  Messrs. Wharton and Kelly are here looking  for mining properties. Mr./Wharton is an old  time Texan.  Bielenberg offer's to sell his claims at $20 per  acre. What price town lots in the Bielenberg  addition to Slocan? '  H. Selous has turned prospector, and located  the Dispute, about a mile south from Seaton  creek, near Bear lake.  J. McGillivray has sold a one-half interest in  the Grey Eagle to mr. Wharton, who intends  to go to work on it at once.  The pack trains on Slocan trail have either  'made, enough money or their mules are played  out for freight is hard to get up.  Forty-four claims have been recorded here  since the record office was opened and A, Sproat  is doing a large business in poll taxes accordingly. '���������������������������'   '."'   .:���������   o    .;;'���������'  Mr. Wharton, who arrived here last week, located a claim called the Deadman, above the  Noble Five, which shows good galena, running  300 ounces.  On June 15th a prospector named Towkin  was killed, and his companion Tabor, was badly  burned by lightning near the Freddie Lee claim  on Cody creek.  At least 6 claims are being worked on in good  shape in this vicinity. Steel, powder, etc., are  scarce, though lots of both are waiting on the  C. & K. track for shipment here.  J. Smith and Evans, late of the Halfway  house, have made a new strike in a new place,  1\ miles from anyone else's stake, the direction  is. somewhere round 4 mile creek.  Judge Bond is lying in camp kicking about  trails. The judge has a large outfit ana means  business, but can't get near the claims he has  bonded, among which are the Seattle and Last  Chance.  Charles Flaatz, Mike Grady and partner have  struck it rich between Red Paddie creek and  the Slocan Star group. They have 2 feet of fine  ore showing all through one claim and croppings  on 2 more claims.  A boy who used to be at the Robson hotel  and who was touting here for a Si wash packer,  has been accused of stealing the Klootchman's  money, has left the neighborhood. Rumor says  he was sent out from England by the orphan  emigration society.  H. Howson has located the Young Dominion  about a mile south of the first forks. The ore is  rich and shows up well for some distance. His  "crowd" have located the Conductor, 1st extension. Queen Bess and Norah Darling are all  round the Young Dominion.  A small fire started on the night of the 16th  near mr. McCullough's house. The brush caught  like touchwood and all hands turned out to  fight the lire. Although the floor of McCullough's house caught fire, the boys managed  to get it under and the wind dropping, the  flames were conquered without much damage.  The following claims have recently been recorded : LeadVille. T. L. Tispenning, Cody  creek ; Cedar, W. Hunter, Cody creek; Mc-  Lilly, H. A. Ross, North Fork Carpenter creek ;  Rebound, D. McRae. North Fork Carpenter  creek ; Lucky Move, J. C. Cress, N. Fork Carpenter creek; Roulette, K.   Watt,   North  Car  penter creek ; Sunshine, E. T. Barnette, Cody  creek; Snowstorm, R. P. Scott, Cody creek;  Black Hawk, F. Crockett, Cody creek ; Noon  Day, W. L. Carutber. V  Martin, Fry and Coplen have a good thing on  the Freddie Lee and are now "out" to sell'or  bond. The ground round it is being rapidly  staked, some dozen claims being recorded on  Cody creek in the last 3 days, among these- the  Anna (W. Lang), and the Reckless (C. Brad-  street), are the best. Lang;, we hear,'-will have  a little trouble, asanot her party claims priority  of location.  COURT   AT   NELSON.  MINERAL CLAIMS RECORDED "AND   TRANSFERRED  Chieftain���������M. J.

On the 18th inst. I received a subpoena  to appear in the case of Wilson & Perdue vs.  McNeill on the 23rd of June, at Nelson. I was  working at Bremner.-&. Watson's stopping place  and store at Bear lake; accordingly I had to  travel 20 miles on foot to Kaslo, stay there a  night and day,'going next day to Nelson, stay  there 24 hours, and return the same way. For  my expenses and loss of time I received $12 from  Wilson & Perdue, though I explained to what  trouble and expense I had been put. My actual  expenses for meals, lodging, and steamboat fare  until I reach Bear lake again will be $11, so that  my compensation for the loss of four days'  work and the fatigue of walking 40 miles is the  munificent sum 'of $1: I may mention that  George Lang, who appeared as witness in  another case, and traveled from the forks of  Carpenter creek (5 miles further that I) received  $29 and had his steamboat' fares paid.  Yours etc.,       H. H. Moody.  Freddie lee.  Jim  Wardner, the story of whose mule filled  up a column of The Miner some weeks ago,  has bonded  the Freddie Lee,  a  Slocan  claim  owned by Bill Springer, Martin Fry and A. D.  Coplen, for 6 months for $20,000, of which 1\  per cent has been paid down. Wardner is carrying around with him a sample of his rock  which assays 6000 ounces. He is yearning to  bet hard cash that he will ship ore to Tacoma  before July 15th.    Any takers?  Where Is lie ?  In reply to D. R. Ker's question, at a meeting  of the British Columbia exhibit association, as  to what the government proposed doing in relation to the World's Columbian exposition, the  hon.. J. H. Turner said that there was a man in  the Kootenay district at present looking up a  thoroughly representative exhibit of the minerals of' the country.  Under Tliree Acts.  Mr. C. E. Perry has completed the survey of  the   Hendryx  group  of mines.    Pilot Bay,   he  says, is steadily progressing, and that a force of  150 to 200 men is working there regularly. Mr.  Perry experienced some of the disadvantages  caused by the frequent changes in the Mineral  Acts. During this survey he was working  under three separate acts.  The Silver 4|ueen.  As soon as supplies can be packed up the hill  3 shifts will be put on to develop this property.  On Wednesday a court of assize and general  gaol delivery was held in Nelson by judge  Drake. On the grand jury been sworn in, the  judge informed them that there were no criminal eases before the courts, addressed a few  words to them on the progress of the town and  district, pointed out their functions in the matter of presentments, and, as they had no presentment to make, discharged them forthwith.  So much for Nelson's criminal record.  The  petty jury  was then sworn in and discharged.  The county court sat next day.    Two mining  cases of importance were brought up.    Shearer  Kent & Becker v. Chambers, involved a question  of mining partnership. It was held that partnership was proved ny prospepting together,  grubbing together, staking claims in the joint  and several names of the parties and by mutual  understanding.        ������  In the second case, Hayes v. Anderson, the  plaintiff wanted the court to declare his right to  a certain prospect on the ground of prior location. He was non-suited on, the following -  technical point: The record bore that the claim  lay to the right of blazed line from No. 1 post  instead of to the right of line from No. 1 to No.  2 post.  The following cases were also decided in the  county court: Olsen v. Hennessy, which went  by "default against the plaintiff. ������������������  Lemon v. Michael Kealey, judgment by default against the defendant.  Kirkup v. Houston & Ink, to recover $306,  judgment was given for $205 and costs.  Walters v. Smith. Dissolution of partnership ordered and accounts referred by consent  to mr. Elliott.  Carney & Barrett v. Ledoux, judgment for  plaintiffs for $3, without costs.  Wilson & Perdue v. McNeil, judgment for  plaintiff with costs.       ;  McNeil v. Wilson & Perdue, judgment for  plaintiff. Costs to be set off against costs of previous action.  To Start a Sawmill.  The Hill brothers came down from the head  of Slocan lake on Thursday 16th, by way of Na  kusp and Columbia river.    It is their intention  to start a sawmill at Wilson creek, 4 miles above  Eldorado city; the machinery will come from  Toronto, and the mill, when erected, will have a  capacity of from 20 to 30 thousand feet a day.  The sawmill which it was rumored was to be  started on the west shore of the lake, is no further advanced than it was 6 weeks ago ; and it  is not considered probable that anything more  will be heard of it. The price of lumber at present is $100 per'in. The Hill brothers intend to  sell good lumber (which, as their timber limit  contains some of the finest lumber in the province, they will be well able to do) at a fair  price. In order to find out for themselves  which was the best way by which to bring in  their machinery, the Hills went from Eldorado  to Kaslo ; from the head of the lake to Nakusp:  the Kaslo trail, they say, is impracticable, having even yet 3 or 4 feet of snow in parts, and  being a good 20 miles from the mines to Kaslo  city; the Nakusp trail, on the other hand, can  be gone over in from 5 to 7 hours ; it is by this  route, consequently, that the machinery will  travel.  The trail from Eldorado to the mines is progressing but slowly. Last week the men at  work left a body to go prospecting, and no  more can be hired, though $3.50 a day"is offered.  Sampling Works at Kelson.  The erection of sampling works at Nelson by  the J. E. Boss outfit will depend on the outp-'  and development work done this year.  ^y-^VTJT-TBV.;-;:*,..!*���������������;���������;-���������y-V!*'^''-^''.". ;S".Vi: VV':  !������.- * -;;  .>*���������'-' ���������'.ri-i.-.v  '���������.���������"/V* !* .'.VBV-; ������'. i'r-'V-'O-:   '^Jf:^'^J'.'.'' ��������� i~^  i-rwpc--  ���������v-1:  ^^^^^^^ THE  -MINEE:    NELSON,  B.  0,,   SATUEDAY, JUNE  25,  1892.

Hartlarid S. McDougall, president of the Montreal stock exchange, has just returned home  from a second tour across the continent, having  made the first in 1886. He says he could not  have believed it possible for western Canada to  have made such wonderful^ progress within so  short a time had he not seen it for himself.  Winnipeg, Brandon, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria, and other towns along the line of the G.  P.

H.  Ink and W.  Gesner Allan.    It is right that they, whose enterprise and ability helped to tide over the evil  days  when subscriptions came  in  but slowly,  should  be  able,   after 2 years of genuine hard  work,  to ''let up" and take it easy for a time.  Tw;o days  after  the press  had  arrived in the  camp, it was reported that the Silver King lead  had  pinched  out.    Yet the outfit stolidly continued to put. the wrong wheel on to the wrong  shaft, and  as  stolidly  took   it  off again ; persevered until the press was in working order;  the paper printed; and until at length the success of the paper was assured.  Mr. Allan goes to England to study medicine;  mr. Ink, will, for a time at least, make his home  in Great Falls. Wherever they may be, or in  whatever pursuit they may be engaged, they  will succeed. And they will deserve success.  We wish them the best of luck, and can assure  them of a hearty welcome when they return to  Nelson (as they surely will) if any of Nelson's  present inhabitants are then alive and in the  neighborhood.    The park got pretty well burnt up this week.  There are so few really pretty places in our  immediate vicinity that we ought to be careful  of those that we do possess. The Forest Fires  act could hardly be brought to bear on the offenders, but, nevertheless, it behooves contractors to be extremely careful that the fire does  not get ahead of them.   What were the police doing on Sunday night ?  That there should be a disturbance, such as occurred, when one of the police was on Baker  street, and that no notice whatever should be  taken of it by the said policeman is a matter  which requires some explanation.  If we are to have a continuation of the law  and order which has, up to the present, characterised Nelson, our guardians of the peace must  learn not to be scared, even when some one tries  to perform the " bad-man " act.

MIXING   MEWS   OF'. THE   WORLD.  All the Sudbiirylnines are in active operation.  The Copper, '-Cliff, Blezard and Murray mines  are working to their full capacity.  The Wit water srand (South African )" gold  mines are being; worked at present with the  transient, speculative object of increasing the  enrrent monthly output to an immediate notable  degree so as to attract attention regardless of  all economic production.  Gold mining in new South Wales reached its  srreatest product for any one year in 1872 with  425,129, ounces (about $7,500,000 as against $1,-  081,000 in 1851.) A steady decline began with  1873. By 1890, the gold, output had decreased to  127,760 ounces valued at about $2,241,600 which,  however, is a larger output than that of 1888  when it aggregated but $1,532,000.  The banks do not have metallic money enough  at hand, or availably tangible, to stand a run on  the part of depositors t o the extent even of 48  hours; In all the British islands the entire  stock of gold does not amount at the most to  $375,000,000 as Has been recently stated by such  authoritative personages as mr. Palgrave of the  British mint and mr. J. Biddulph Martin.  As far back as 1864, Cumshewa was known as  a 'district ofconsiderable mineral wealth. About  that time an explorer brought down a quantity  of arsenic, confident that it was silver���������and  silver of a high grade. It was not until 1889  that the place was heard of again as a mineral  deposit. In this year, mr. James Deans was  also deceived, and his samples of supposed silver  proved to be nothing but arsenic, not a profitable commodity. It is, however, a well-established fact that where arsenic appears it is a  sure indication of silver���������in 8 out of 10 cases it  runs into silver. Cognizant of this fact, several  enterprising Victorians secured the services,of  Peter Rossmussen, a practical miner, to prospect the country. He has discovered abundant  traces of silver on Hot SpHngs island, scmtti of  Queen Charlotte, and at Moresby island, samples  of which it is expected, will be down by the  Boscowitz on her coming trip. There is also  coal found in the district, but its quantity is uncertain. Silver, however, is a sure thing, and  reports from the prospector are anxiously  looked forward  to.  William C. Lynn, M.E., certified mine manager, accompanied by a practical borer, has  sailed for this country from Glasgow. Mr.  Lynn represents an influential Scotch syndicate having auriferous quartz claims in Illecille-  waet; whither he will proceed on his arrival  here to the mine, and will take back with him a  large sample of ore representing his company's  mine. The value of the ore is reported as $72  per ton in gold, and if it turns out only half as  rich as stated, an unlimited amount of capital  is ready to go into the concern. Mr. Lynn also  proposes to have it tested locally, in order to  satisfy colonial investors of the solidity of the  undertaking.    It is well known that  large de  posits of gold-bearing rock exist in this province. Hitherto the trouble has been that miners  and prospectors have lacked the somewhat large  capital necessary to operate a mine and erect a  mill, so turned their attention to digging, which  yielded a more immediate return in the shape of  bullion. Should mr. Lynn's mission, however,  prove successful, capital and skilled supervision  will not be wanting for any similar genuine  enterprise. The Cassell Gold Extraction Company, for instance, which controls the Mc-  Arthur-Forrest process for the treatment of refractory gold ores, which has been operated  with such distinguished success in the Transvaal, would erect large reduction works in the  province, but for the fact that there is not a  sufficient output of ore to supply such an establishment, and the concern not being a mining one, is not prepared itself to undertake the  mining of the stuff.  A rich body of ore has been encountered in  the Anaconda tunnel at a depth of 208 feet.  Four assays on the ore each run over 5 ounces  in gold, ore running up to 73 ounces. The strike  is important from the fact that it proves that  rich deposits of ore are to be found at a depth,  and that the mineral wealth is not confined to  the surface blanket formation, as some of the  skeptics have claimed. The company have not  been permitted to ship,a pound of ore since the  25th of last month, owing to the injunction suit,  but it has several thousands tons of ore on the  dump ready for shipment.

FLETCHER,  LAND  COMMISSIONER, NELSON, E.G.  BENJAMIN   BREWSTER.  "Ten  or twelve years ago  I  witnessed the  most dramatic situation of my life in, a Philadelphiacourt room," said Henry J.  Erskiiie of  the Quaker city  to  the  writer.    "It occurred  during the trial of an^important suit involving  certain   franchise   rights  of  the  Pennsylvania  railroad in Philadelphia.    Benjamin Brewster,"  afterwards   attorney-general    of    the    United  States, was then the chief counsel of the Pennsylvania company.   Brewster, you know, had a  terrible disfiguration of his face from burns, but  intellectually he was a giant and in deportment  a Chesterfield.    So  great was  the  admiration  for the man's powerful -mental parts that one  soon forgot his plainness.    He was  extremely  sensitive about  his  misfortune,   but never referred to in himself; nor did any of his thousands  of friends  ever ask  him its  cause.    The  trial to which I refer was a bitterly contested  affair, and Brewster at every point got so much  the best of the  opposing counsel  that by  the  time arguments commenced his adversary was  in a white heat. In denouncing the railroad  company this lawyer, with his voice tremulous  with anger, exclaimed: 'This grasping corpora-  t ion is as dark, devious and scarified in its  methods as is the face of its chief attorney and  henchman, Benjamin Brewster.' This violent  outburst of rage and cruel invective was followed by a breathless stillness in the crowded  court room that wase painful. Hundreds of  pitying eyes were rivited on the scarred face of  Brewster. Never before had any one referred  to mr. Brewster's misfortune in such a way, or  even any terms, in his presence.  " Mr. Brewster slowly rose and said: ' Your  honor1, in all my career as a lawyer, I have  never dealt in personalities ; nor dirt I ever before feel called upon to explain the cause of my  physical misfortune, but I will do so now.  When a boy���������and my mother, God bless her,  said I was a pretty little boy���������while playing  around an open fire one day with a little sister  just beginning to tottle, she fell into the roaring flames. I rushed to her rescue, pulled her  out before she was seriously hurt and fell in the  fire myself. When they took me out of the  coals, my face was as black as that man's heart.'  The last sentence was spoken in a voice whose  rage was that of a lion. It had an electrical effect, and the applause that greeted it was prolonged.   The Beaver ���������ionc.  It is  hardly   likely   now   that   the   steamer  Beaver,   the pioneer steamship  of  the  Pacific  ocean, will be taken  to the Chicago fair.    The  wreck  of this   interesting  old  craft  has   been  lying on the rocks at the entrance to the first  narrows,   Vancouver,   for a year  or two, and  has stood the gales and waves right nobly until  last   week,   when  the  backwash  one  morning  from the steamer Yosemite rolled into the gap  in her side, struck the boiler, which turned over  and slipped overboard, and the old vessel, being  thus lightened, suddenly careened and pitched  headforemost into the depths below���������a fitting  grave for the pioneer steamship of the great  Pacific.  TO WHOM  IT MAY CONCERN-GREETING.  Whereas one Arthur Stanhope Farjvell pretends to have  some right or title to lot number six in group one of the  district of Kootenay in the province of British Columbia,  which lot of land is situate and lying within the Canadian  Pacific railway belt, and claims to be entitled to sell and  dispose of the said lot or portions thereof. ,C;  Notice is hereby given that the said Arthur Stanhope  Farwell has no right, title or interest whatever in the said  land, nor is he entitled to the possession thereof; but that  the said land is the property of and is vested in her Majesty  the Queen in right of the dominion of Canada, from whom  alone a valid title to the said land can be obtained.  The public are, therefore, warned that deeds or conveyances of the said land or any portion thereof made by the  said Arthur Stanhope Farwell will convey no title or interest to the purchaser, nor any right to possession, and  that all persons purchasing any portions of the said land  from the said Arthur Stanhope Farwell willdo so at their  o wn risk and peril.

A blue book on East Africa affairs gives the  correspondence in which it is shown that commissioner Johnston continues to display; extraordinary activity. It seems that Johnston has  been engaged in almost continuous fighting  since November, ostensibly for the suppression  of the slave trade in Nyassaland. At first he  seemed invincible in his conflicts with the  Arabs, but of late he has suffered some defeats,  and his prestige is somewhat impaired. Both  the Germans and Portugees disfavor Johnson's  habits of attacking every Arab caravan on sight  and it looks as if they had complained to the  British govern merit on, the subject, for Johnston,  evidently replying to a reproof, wrote lord Salisbury on February 25 : "I am anxious to assure  'your lordship that I am not pushing a bellicose  policy. I do not intend to enter upon any quixotic or expensive crusade against slavery  throughout British Central Africa, but I am  forced to suppress slave-raiding and slave-trading along our narrow and precious line of communication between Shire and Ijagganyika."  Ten days after this note was written, the  Arab slave trader Zarafe routed Johnston's  lieutenant and captured a 7-pound gun and a  quantity of munitions of war. A month later  Johnston swooped upon Zarafe with a strong  bahd of natives and administered a severe defeat to the Arabs, but the result was very expensive. The government shows no sign of  weakening in its determination to put. down the  slave trade, though a more cautious course may  be insisted on than Johnston would prefer.  The admiralty is building two steamers for him  to use in capturing slave dhows on the lake.  Meanwhile Germany and Portugal have agreed  to so far cooperate Avith England as to refrain  'from selling powder to the Arabs of Nyassaland.  Further letters received from the White  Father mission, in Uganda, East Africa, report,  that charges have been made against the Protestant forces in the kingdom, of mowing down  Catholics, including many women and children,  with a deadly rain of shot from a mitrailleuse,  with which they were supplied. The latter  also say that after the Catholic armies were  three times repelled desperate attacks were  made on the ranks of the survivors; they at  length being driven toward Victoria Nyanza.  So hard pressed were the routed forces of  Catholics that they actually were forced into  the great lake, and from 500 to 600 of the poor  people were drowned miserably like a herd of  cattle. The letters add that major Keuline  saved the lives of bishop Hirth and king Mwan-  ga, who led the Catholics, by his timely arrival  at the scene of carnage and his display of the  German flag.        '   B*ry land Fishes.  The most remarkable dry land fish has a  name as long as his body. It is periopthalmus.  Very kindly, naturalists allow ordinary mortals  to speak of him as the "goby." The little creature is about 4 or 5 inches long, with a big  head, prominent eyes and side or pectoral fins,  which are more like legs than anything else.  The goby comes on shore and scrambles along  the banks in search of food. One ardent naturalist tells us that he took a shotgun and picked  off his gobies as they hopped along the muddy  shore, as if they were snipe. The gobies are  common in New Zealand, where the natives call  them the running fishes. This inoffensive creature has been called by naturalists the Gobius  soporator. Recently a party of naturalists  traveling in Mexico and Texas found some of  these little fishes and confined them in a pail.  They remained in a short time; then, to the  astonishment of the observers, several of them  were seen clambering over the side of the pail  and dropping down upon the ground, when  they proceeded to wriggle their way to the  water, not far distant. They used the fins as  legs, and made very good progress. When re-  nlaced in the pail they tumbled out again and  could only be kept there by placing a board  over the top of their prison.
