Nelson   Gold   ri'opcrties--ltevelstokc   News--  Trull Creek Keeps It Up.  NELSON.  Our two working gold mines, the Poor-  man nnd the Nelson Hydraulic Go. are  poundiug in for all they are worth extracting the precious metal from the  bowels of the earth. At the Poorinan  the 10 stamps lire putting through only  about 10 tons a day just now as a certain  amount of dead work has to be doue. At  Forty-nine Creek "Our Company" under  the able management of Mr. Coulter has  got tlie bed rock flume laid nearly to the  point nt which it will cover enough  ground to save the handling of tbe boulders which takes so much time at present.  We have rumours of an immense strike  in this district, which is shortly to receive the attention of capitalists now on  their way to Nelson. We are not at  liberty to mention any names in the matter. Suffice it to say that the find consists of an enormous deposit of low grade  free milling quartz in easily accessible  position. If in opening up it comes up  to sample it will be one of the most valuable properties in the world.  A feeling of confidence iu the return  of good times is making itself felt, especially by the owners of gold claims on  Toad Mountain and ihe adjoining hills.  During Sir Joseph Trutch's visit, he  arranged for the Hall Mines, with the  owners of the Farwell addition to Nelson,  for a right of way for an aerial tramway  through their land, and for the purchase  of a block of about 13 acres on their  frontage westerly from the Cottonwood  Creek Falls, for the general purposes of  the company. This indicates that the  ground between the Falls and the railway station will be a busy scene in tbe  near future. Being practically within  the town, it makes Nelson at once an industrial centre. The tramway will be  constructed without delay. Sir Joseph  expressed himself in glowing terms respecting the future of Nelson with which  his company is now closly connected.  He pleased everyone who met him with  hit- courtesy and businesslike promptitude, and had much agreeable conversation with old time friends.  .AVe hear that Major lletallack on tbe  part of persons he represents has acquired possession of the Golden King.  TRAIL CREEK.  Billy Lynch's Commander is looking  well-   Its price is out of sight.  The proprietors of the Uniou have  about ten tous of ore on the dump. The  latest assay shows $12 in gold.  The Mabel has been bonded for 35,000.  The O. K. is now turning out over $100  worth of ore a day. The new machinery  works well.  F. S. Algiers and his partner have made  two locations near the boundary. Samples of their ore show both gold aud copper.  . A. Hall and P. McCormiek have located a claim called the White Elephant on  Stony Creek. The ore assays $28 in gold'  and 70 ouuees in silver. The claim has  already been bonded.  The lead on the Kootenai is looking  well; the ore is rich aud in great quantity. There is no doubt about the bond  being takeu up.  The Grand Prize No. 2 is a good looking prospect with a ledge of quartz about  20 feet wide bearing auriferous pyrites  and-galenn��������� ������������������'������������������-��������� ���������- *���������-���������  The St.-Elmo has been bonded to  Messrs. Loring and Crone.,  M. A. Burbridge reports a rich strike  of free milling ore near the boundary  Assays show an average of over an ounce  of gold and a rush to that neighbourhood  is expected  It has been decided that teamsters  hauling from the States into Rossland  must pay duty on their horses. This innovation will cause a great deal of dissatisfaction.  A sparring match is billed for the 23rd.  The contestants are Ed CuiT of Frisco,  iind M. McPherson of Rosslaud. Five-  ounce gloves will be used. ���������  Some line specimens have been brought  in; from the Old Hundred.    '  Over $500 have been subscribed for the  grading of Columbia avenue. The sum  required iH $1,000.  Both the Lytton aud the Kootenai are.  canyiug ore from Trail to Northport aud  still it accumulates at the landing.   ,  - .The telephone company are busy putting up wires for the local circuit.  The weather is vile.  REVELSTOKE.  (From the Mail.)  Fred Conway, who has been subject to  transfer wherever the C. P. 11. had need  for his services, has now been assigned  to a permanent place in the freight department at Robson, and will leave on  Monday's boat to take up thc duties of  his new position.  Mr. It. II. Lee, Civil Engineer, arrived from Kamloops Sunday morning,  and left Monday on the Arrow for Thomson's Landing. He will survey the  Trout Lake wagon road, and upon his  estimate of the cost, measures will be  taken by the Government to complete  the road, which was left in an unfinished state last year.  Wm. Kirkup and John Cloonan returned from their prospectiug trip into  Big Bend the first of this week. They  visited Smith Creek where they lefb  seven men at work on the Sol Holden  Hydraulic property now owned by the  Atkins Chicago Syndicate, They also  looked over French and McCulloch  . Creeks.  Mark Hyatt, who formerly resided in  Revelstoke, and moved to Armstrong iu  the Okanagan country, now proposes to  try his luck in gold mining. He arrived  Wednesday morning en the way to Big  Bend, to commence operations as manager  for the Spallumcheen Gold Mining company's hydraulic claim on Camp Creek,  one of the tributaries of Gold Stream.  He left Friday with his own pack train  of four horses and three men, with a full  supply of mining necessaries. The claim  of the company is one that was worked  25 years ago, and turned out $72 in two  days with two meu working, but was  .stopped by cold weather. The three men  going out with Hyatt are George Shepley,  Robert Caley and Frank Winters.  The steamers have this week been doing a large business. Th. Arrow on  Monday morning had a full load of passengers and freight. The Lytton in addition to u good passenger list, had one  car of cattle for Three Forks, and three  cars of merchandise from the east, one of  them beiug a solid car for Nelson. The  Marion also had a good load ou Wednesday morning.  Nearly 300 cubic yards of rock will have  been dumped into the river along-side  the bridge piers before the work now  planned has been completed. The bridge  superintendent finds that the foundation  of each pier on the west side aud lower  end is cut away by the action of the current, making a big hole which he is filling with rock to save the piers from being further undermined.  John Sanderson and W. Evans left  McCulloch Creek Monday morning and  arrived here Wednesday noon, coming over the trail. Mr. Sanderson is here,  to attend a meeting of the McCulloch.  Creek Tunnel Co., of which he is manager, which will be held about the first  of June. Mr. Evans goes down lo Kootenay Lake, and "will do the assessment  work on a valuable silver claim on Duncan River.  NEWS OF THE WORLD.  FURTHER TROUBLE IN THE EAST.  The Premier Wins Again.���������Terrible wreck  a San Francisco Steamer.���������Debs Jailed.  of  The rebellion in Cuba  an end.  is practically at  LOCAL   NEWS.  The weather has  for a week or two.  been unusually wet  General Booth of the Salvation Army  is seriously ill.  168 persons were drowned by the  wreck of the Spanish Steamer Graviua  off Manila.  For a second time in succession Lord  Rosebery has won tbe Derby with Sir.  Visto who was second favorite at 13. to 2.  An earthquake has occurred in Florence by which many of the finest buildings in that city ot palaces have been injured.  The trial of Theodore Durrant for the  murder of Minnie Williams and Blanche  Lamont will take place on July 22. His  counsel has applied for a change of venue  which most certainly ought to be granted.  The Right Hon. Arthur Wellesley Peel  late Speaker of the House of Commons  has been raised to the Peerage. At the  election to fill his seat in the House, the  Hon. A. Ly ttie to n, tbe Unionist Candidate, beat bis Gladstouian opponent by  2816 to 2236.  Matters are by no means settled in the  East. The island of Formosa has rebelled against China. The cablegram further  reports that Japanese, French and Russian  ships are preparing for action. The news  is bare and it is impossible to make anything out of it.  Eugene Debs the president of the A.  R. U. is obliged to go to jail. His appeal  against the previous sentence has been  dismissed by the Superior Court. He is  thus, by the highest tribunal in the  United States, held responsible for the  outrages that occured at the great railway strikes in Chicago last year.  The Pacific Mail Steamer Colimu has  foundered off Manzanillo, Mexico. Details to hand are very meagre. It is believed that her boilers burst. The steamer was on. her southward. voyage from  San Francisco. The accident occured at  night when most of the passengers were  asleep and it is supposed that 160 were  lost.  GOAT RIVER.  CANADIAN NEWS.  Wanted situations as first-class cooks  or housekeepers by two ladies. Apply at  The Miner office, 1_2  The Sea King mine is situated on the  north side of Duck Creek on Duck Mountain, within 1J_ miles of uavigable water  and is owned by the "Columbia Mining  Company of Wisconsin." It is a dry ore.  The ledge on the surface is about five  feet wide and cairies gray copper which  assays from 85 to 400 ounces silver and  from S_ to $18 in gold. The copper assay  I do not know. The development consists of a shaft sunk ou the" lead to a  depth of 20 feet and a tunnel to tap the  ledge at a depth of 150 feet has been run  in for about 200 feet but the parties doing the work had to quit on account of  ..water. Altogether the development on  this property would figure up to. about  $3000. Other claims on the same lead  are the Tonawanda, Nancy Hanks and  another on the south and one���������name unknown on the North.  S. S. Fowler, Mining Engineer of Chicago was down to see some Goat River  and Duck . Creek properties during the  last week,and is very favorably impressed  with what he saw.  The river for the past week has risen  over two feet; but this cool weather will  probably give her a set-back.  The crops on the Dyking Company's  Farm are looking well. They have put  a small area iu hops as an experiment.  NEW DENVER.  The Queen's Birthday was .elebrated  here with eclat and decorum by a large  crowd.* Visitors attended from Nakusp,.  Three Forks, Silverton and Sandon and  every body had a most enjoyable time.  The following was the programme of  sports and some fine contests resulted:  ' Shooting match, I.

Gonne of Paul Boutons troupe aud  the days entertainment wound up with a  dance. Ou Saturday evening Messrs  Bouton and Gonne gave another entertainment to a full house which thoroughly appriciated the efforts made for their  entertainment.  Today (Monday) Col. Baker and Capt.  Fitzstubbs arrived from Three Forks on  their way to Trail Creek. Col. Baker is  visiting the chief mines of the-district  and finds they fully come up to what he  has heard of them.  There has been some excitement during the last few days - over some strikes  on Eight Mile creek of gold bearing ore.  Claims have been staked on this creek  for two or three years but till no\v nothing very great was thought of " them.  Lately some very good assays have been  made.  Two claims have been staked immediately opposite New Denver aud assays of  surface rock show, $6 in gold.  The Jury in the case of Dallas Hyams  on trial for murder at Toronto, have disagreed. The prisoner will be tried at .the  fall assizes.  Five men were seriously injured at Niagara by an explosion of dynamite. A  man commenced thumping a drill in a  hole with a dynamite cartridge at the  bottom of it.  The contract for police clothiug in Montreal was let to the highest tenderer. The  Mayor stated in council that several aldermen had been offered cheques for their  influence.  The oldest woman in Ontario, if not in  Canada, is Mrs. O'Meara, and ber age is  110. She resides with her daughter, Mrs.  James Ryan, in Wrightville, one of the  suburbs of Hull.  Returns collected by the Ottawa Journal from various parts of tbe Ottawa valley show that the reaction in business is  very general there, and a great revival  of trade is taking place.  A cold wave throughout Western Ontario a week ago destroyed the fruit crop  of the Niagara peninsula.  NEWS OF THE PROVINCE.  THE DEATH OF GRESHAM.  The President's Proclamation.  MIDWAY.  Washington, May 28.���������The President  today issued the following proclamation:  <. "Walter Q. Gresham, Secretary of State  of the Uuited States, is dead. The President, in. making this, distressing announcement to his fellow-countrymen,  speaks from the depths of personal affliction.to remind them that' thoy, too, have  lost a pure and able,, public servant, a  wise aud patriotic guardian of all their  rights and interests, a manly and loyal  American and o generous and lovable  man.' As a suitable expression of,national bereavement, I direct that the diplomatic representatives of the Uuited States  iu all foreign countries display the Hag  over their embassies and legations at  half-must 10 da> s, that for a like period  the flag of tho United States be displayed  at half-mast at all forts and military  posts, und at all naval stations and ou all  vessels of the United States. I further  order that ou the day of the funeral nil  executive departments in the city of  Washington be closed, and that on all  public buildings throughout the United  States tbe national Hag be displayed at  half mast. .��������� Gkoveb Cleveland." ���������  New   Time  the   Great  (Midway Advance.)  Over 100 tons of concentrates will soon  have accumulated at Camp McKin-  ney awaiting shipment a3 soon as_ the  road over the summit dries out sufficiently to haul them over.  - As soon as the ore sacks arrive Mr.  Elliott will start shipping ore put of the  Smuggler mine, Fairview, and if this  turns out well at the smelter there will  hardly be any limit to the amount that  will be shipped out. It is the intention  to ship at least 500 tons as a fiist experiment.  Mr. W. T. Thompson, of Fairview,  and Mr. Douglas, who has large copper  interests in Arizona, paid a visit to the  summit and Copper camps last week, arriving in Midway on Monday. They pro- j  ceeded up the creek on Tuesday, and re-1  turned  to Penticton  for the north   on j  Wednesday. Although Mr.Douglas made j  a cursory stay here, he was very favor-1 at 10*35 p. m., and arrive at  ably impreesed with our ore bodies. 11:45 p. m. the foil-wing day.  Table   on  Northern.  When the present fast schedule was  arranged it was regarded as a great triumph. To the west it gave the fastest  time ever known to Seattle. To the east  it broke all records between Spokane and  St. Paul. Then it was announced that  the Northern Pacific was preparing a fast  schedule to take effect next Sunday. To  day the Great Northern calmly announced that it has decided to clip a few more  hours off its running time.'  Effective next Sunday, 2nd June, the I  Great Northern train will leave Seattle at!  7:10 p. m., arrive at Spokane after a run j  of thirteen hours and fifty, minutes, at 9 ;  a. m.; leave this city at 9:05 a. m.; arrive j  I at Minneapolis at 5-30 p.  m. and  at St.  I Paul at 6 p. m. on the third day in time ,  to catch the fast trains for Chicago, hav-:  ing made the through run from Seattle ,  to St. Paul in seventy-hours and -fiifly j  minutes, and. the run from Spokane to  St. Paul in fifty-six hours and fifty-live  minutes.  Returning, the train will leave St. Paul  at the same time as now; leave Spokane  Seattle  We regret to hear that Mr. W. J. Goepel is laid up with a severe chill.  A notice relating to th" estate of tbe  late John Doluu will be found in another  column.  The Rev. Father Peytavin R. C priest  of this district was at Revelstoke last  Sunday.  Messrs. Traves <fc Farley's Butcher  Shop and the adjoining Bi-metallic Restaurant are receiving a much needed coat  of paint.  Intending tenderers are reminded that  the time for receiving tenders for olearing  the right of way for the Silver King tramway closes at noon on Monday.  An advertisement of a sheriff's sale in  the Golden Era, commences, "By virtue  of a writ of Furic Facias." This must be  some new kind of a legal engine.  The s. s. Nelson comes down twice a  week staggering under a load of 80 tons  or so of Pilot Bay bullion. The contract  for the conveyance of the rich metal to  the refineries has now been obtained by  the C. P. R.  The members of tbe Fire Brigade are  atteuding to their duty so as to^be found  ready if their arch enemy suddenly  breaks out. On Wednesday they had the  hose reel out and tested all the city hydrants with satisfactory results.  We understand that negotiations are in  progress for the removal of the Victoria  Hotel bodily from the site it now occupies to the corner of the vacant ground  opposite the band stand. If this is carried ont it means goodbye to baseball.  We understand that the engineers of  the Canadian Pacific Railway have arrived at Three Forks and will commence the  building of their extension to Sandon at  once. It has been decided not to make tbe  line an electric oue but to adopt some  other method of reaching their termiuus.  In another column will be fouud C. E,  Tisdalls advertisement of sporting goods.  This Vancouver establishment has " always been known for the excellence of  its goods. Mr. Tisdall sent us a parcel  of Hies the other day. They look good to  the eye and are seemingly well tied, but  in the paesent state of the river we have  been unable to give them a practical  trial.  Little Isabel, the daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. Seaman succumbed to the terrible  complications that succeed an attack of  the scarlet fever.on Wednesday last. Bravely the little one had struggled for weeks,  sometimes rallying so as to give faint  hopes of recovery which unfortunately  were not to be realized. The funeral  took place on Thursday when the body  was followed to the grave by a large  number of sympathising friends.  Nelson has beeu crying out for a smelter for a long time. Now tbat there is almost a certainty of one, if not two, being  built here there is a cry that their fumes  will kill the gardens and all the greenery  round the town. What matter? For  every leaf destroyed they will put a dollar into our poekets. What, though  twenty smelters rage and belch forth  poisonous fumes all round us. They  would mean brisk business and lots of  dollars to go and buy houses and gardens  in Paris, New York or London (Ont.) or  in any other place that pleases us.  Something quite new in the way of entertainments will be given at the English  church room on Thursday next at 8 p.m.,  iu the shape of a Japanese tea. The room  -and-all---the fixings'���������will be asjapanicky-  as possible and it is not unlikely that the  ladies will dou the gorgeous robes worn  by the daughters of the land of the rising  sun. There will be a musical programme.  Refreshments of all kinds including ice  cream, strawberries aud cream and other  delicacies will be served c" . the daintiest  china, specially, imported from Japan.  Every guest will be presented with the  cup and saucer he uses. An admission  fee of twenty-five cents will be charged.  It is strange that a paper' like the  Spokcsmau'Review permits itself to be  so badly misinformed about matters iu  its neighbourhood as it is. In n.'recent  issue it states that the Silver King tramway is to end at the Nelson .t Fort Sheppard depot which , is absurd us well a_  untrue. In another place it says that a  Scotch company of which Sir Joseph  Pett is tho "president" has recently taken  hold of the Silver King, which is wrong  again. This latter statement is made on  the authority of Mr. J. Hendry of Vancouver, and the former by Mr. Dilsheiuier  of Spokane. As Jong as tho paper is  content to depend on the "man in the  street" for its news it will go on making  ridiculous blunders in this fashion. .  John Bodon, alias John Boyd was convicted of stealing two pair* of pants and  a syringe and received a six month's sentence for each offence. He ,is further to  find security for his good behaviour for  another six'months-sifter his release or  suffer a still further imprisonment of four  mouths. The prisoner got away_.n the  Alberta on the Queeu's Birthday, and actually stood alongside the man rrom whom  liestole the pants. Not being able to  cash up for his fare, he was put off at the  Blue Bell. From there he found his way  to Ainsworth where he was arrested.  John Grant is under remaud on a charge  of stealing a watch and ring. He was arrested at Kobson. The apprehension of  these men reflects great credit ou Constable Miles. Since writing the above  we hear that John Grant is sentenced to  10 months. -  At Vancouver Pat Kane has been convicted of the murder of Fi Ma and sentenced to be hanged on the 23rd July.  Recent disclosures at Vancouver show  that Japanese slave girls are imported to  British Columbia for improper purposes.  BI-METALLISM.  The question of bi-metallism has again  come to the front in Germany. The Upper House of tbe Prussian Diet on Thursday adopted a resolution proposed by  Count Von Mirbach, declaring that steps  should be takeu for a prompt settlement  of the currency question by an international agreement on bimetallism.   The  resolution was strongly opposed t*y the  governor of the Imperial Bank, who  warned the members tbat the adoption ot  the policy outlined in the resolution  would result in financial disorder and  confusion. Chancellor Von Hohenlohe  said that the Prussian Ministry had not  decided on the course it would follow in  respect tothe motion, and therefore it  could not adopt a definite attitude, yet  the government would submit the ^silver  question to further examination in concert with the federal states. The government was also willing to ultimately confer with the other powers on common  measures to be adopted. The basis of  discussion, however, must first be settled,  and when the answers of the countries  consulted were received renewed attempts  would be made to continue the international exchange of views.���������Bradstreets.  MINING  NOTES.  (From our exchanges.)  An English company, represented by  Mr. Hughes, is prospecting a piece'of  ground near Lillooet. The ground is  considered good, and water will be  brought from Cayuse creek, though,there  will be some heavy digging to be done! '  On the Lambert claim on Bridge river  men are engaged bringing water to sluice  a channel so as to divert the course of the  river, exposing 1*4 miles of the bed which  is supposed to be very rich. There are  rich quartz ledges farther up the river.  Mr. J. B. Hobson, manager of the.Cariboo Hydraulic Company at Quesnelle,  writes that more men are going into Cariboo than cau find work; quite a number  are destitute, and it would be charity to  dissuade those who have no means' from  going up. ;  . Reports of rich finds in China creek,  Alberni, are brought by Mr. Henry Saunders, of Victoria. Messrs. Mclenallan  and Childs have claims running $1 to the  cubic yard. On the Mountain Rose there  is a two-foot le_ge from which assays ot  $500 to $1,000 were got. The Alberni,  further up, goes even better. Some of  the China creek claims promise well.  The Victoria Company has 45 men engaged on its claims on Quesnelle river  opening up a ditch used some years ago  and expect to have water ou it in six  weeks.  Forty-five claims have been staked by  private parties near the Horsefly and are  being worked by hand process. Some  clean ups as high as an ounce u day'have  beeu made. '.  Geo. T. Gardner and J. Wendell will  likely open two hydraulics this summer  near North Bend.  Horsefly Hydraulic Company stock is  quoted at $25, mnking the total value of  the property, $1,500,000. '  ",  A GOOD IDEA.

LEWIS (M. QUAD).  [Copyright, 1895, by Charles B. Lewis.]  Captain Abel Jones was 50 years of  age and had retired from the sea and  settled down on a farm in Now Hamp-  -phiro whon something happened to upset him. Ono night a tramp came along  and asked for lodgings. It did uot take  half an eye to seo that he was a sailor-  man, and in tho conrso of conversation'  it was learned that ho had uot only followed tho sea for many years, but had  met with somo surprising adventures on  salt wator. Ho gavo his uamo as John  Prako. I was Captain Jones' nephew  and living iu his houso. Whon they had  talked of ships and sailors and gales and  calms for a conploof hours, tho stranger  suddenly turned upon my uucle with:  "Seo hore, mate, you have mado mo  wolcomo and used mo like a man, and  I'm a good mind to put you in tho way  of a good thing. Send tlio boy to bed and  get rid of tlie old woman, and I'll tell  yon something to open your oyos."  "The boy" strongly objected to going  off to bod just at that juncture, and, as  for the "old woman, " who was of courso  my Aunt Hetty, she plumped herself  down botweeu the two mon with her  knitting work and grimly observed:  "What you have to say to Abol can  be said beforo his family or not at all!"  I don't think Drako had any other object than to fiud lodgings; bnt," discovering that Uncle Abel was rather credulous, he conceived a plan. Ho was only  about 40 yoars of age, and tho fact of  his being on tho tramp should have been  proof to the captain that there was  something wrong.With him as a sailor.  After many mysterious nods and winks  and chuckles to arouse our curiosity,  and ��������� after obliging the three of us to  hold up our right hands and swear never  to .reveal the secrot to mortal man, ho  reeled off his yaru. Aside from many  other voyages, he had mado several trips  from Now York and Boston to the West  Indies. On ono of theso trips, which  ���������was his last voyage, he had befriended  a sick and dying sailor at Porto Rico.  When the man found that he must die,  he told Drake of a treasure of $300,000  in gold buried on one of tho Virgin is-  ��������� lands, of which there are five, lying to  the eastward of tho island of St. Thomas. There was the usual rough map  drawn.by a sailor's hand, but Drake had  lost this. He rememberod, however, that  the treasure was,, on Petrel island, and  that one must step off 21 paces from a  certain tree toward a certain great rock.  The dying sailor had not beon a pirate,  but a mutineer, and the treasuro had  .come from an English vessel which was  carrying the gold to one of the Bahamas  to pay a government claim.  .I can't remember all the particulars  as Drake related them, but he was a  smooth tonguod and plausible liar and  .made out a fine story. He was sure, tho  gold was still there, and he had been  waiting to find somo one who would  deal honestly with him. My Uncle Abel  drank in and believed-1 every word  the liar uttered, but not. so with Aunt  Hetty. Sho sized tho man up for what  he was and plainly told him that he was  yarniug. Ho' pretended to be much  grieved at her suspicions, aiid when he  went off to bed ho said he would go to  Kennebunk and try to fiud some ship  owner or captain who would be willing  to bring tho treasuro off and make a fair  divide. Thero was $300,000. in coined  gold, and all he wanted for himself was  $25,000.  Noxt morning, after Drako had retold  his yarn and added to it, Aunt Hetty-  began to weaken in her objections and  finally came to believe there was something in it. Beforo the day was over she  was as enthusiastic as Uncle Abel, aud  th"a^"w^'"tho'_cgihniiig"o- "whaTlhave  termed a strahgo voyage., In the course  of. a couplo of days tho captain  and  .. Drake went over to Kennobunk to look  . for a suitablo craft. They found the  brig  Foam  for sale, and  the  captain  .drew his last dollar from the bank,  mortgaged his farm, sold off 3 cows, 40  sheep, 10 hogs and a yoke of oxen and  ** raised the money to buy her. As every-  body.knew he had given up the sea,-this  move of his was productive of much  . gossip. .When it was known that Aunt  Hetty was to go along, tho gossip increased. - Drako got drunk and boasted  of tho treasuro, and so it came about  . that everybody know the object of our  quest, though no ono knew just  whore  ��������� we woro going. "Captain Jones was called  a fool by his .Lest  friends, but neither  ��������� ridicule nor abuse had uny effect on  him. By tho timo he was ready for soa  ho was a firm believer that ho would return with money enough to buy out all  . Kennebunk, .and his wife was even  moro enthusiastic. Wo shipped a mate  and four sailors on tho "lay" plan.  Each was to havo a certain por cent of  the treasure, if found. Aunt Hetty, was  to act as cook. This gavo us seven men,  and I went along as cabin boy.: The brig  sailed for Boston, got a cargo for'Porto  '   Eicb, and we wore finally off.  ��������� .   We  were  hardly clear of  the  land  when trouble arose.    Drake wanted to  live in tho cabin and _l_.v *__s______r instead of doing duty as a sailor, ana Aunt  Hetty  started   out  to boss  things in a  ' way to give offense to all.   The  mate,  v/hose name was Furbish, had forgotten  his instruments, aud Captain Jones had  bought somo old water casks, with tho  ��������� result that most of their contents had  leaked  out  before wo left  tho  wharf.  ��������� - When four days out, we had to hail an  incoming ship and buy .two casks of water, ahd within a week Aunt Hetty's  economy left us without tea or coffee. It  : has always been a marvel to tho seafaring men of Kennebunk that tho brig  reached her port of destination. Captain  Jones was an old fashioned sailor, who  made his way almost altogether by dead  reckoning. Ho could get the latitude of  the sun at noonday after a tremendous  ��������� struggle, but when ho had worked out  his sights he wasn't sure of his position  within 50 miles. The brig's sails were  old, the rigging sadly out of repair, and  .- her foremast was so insecure that only  about half the usual amount of sail was  spread. . It was pure luck that sho ever  reached Porto Rico, even though she  made the longest passage on record. She  was hardly in port bofore Drake desert-  Id aud shippod on a - craft bound for  Liverpool. Tho sailors disliked hiin to  a man, and strong hints had been  thrown out that if the treasure was not  found it would bo the worse for him.  Tho man's desertion made no differonce  in our plans. Undo Abol and Aunt  Hetty wore certain thoy could find the  buried gold without his assistance, and  whon tho matter was talked over everybody was glad ho had departed, as there  would be $25,000 moro to divide up  among tho rost.  When tho cargo had beon discharged,  tho brig started for Petrel island. Tho  Virgin group lay dead to tho east, and  yet Captain..Jones managed to miss it  and run 100 miles into tho Atlantic before ho figured out what had happened.  Then ho turned back, camo vory near  wrecking his craft on tho reofs of Sombrero and aftor mauy days camo to anchor off the cast coast of Petrol island.  Drako had described a certain bay.  Whilo ho had novor seen it, wo did find  a bay answering pretty well to tho description. The beach on the north sido  of this bay was something liko the one  he had told us of, but there was no troo  nor rock whero he had placed it. It  was decided to go asboro and prospect,  however, and an examination of tho  shore resulted in a stay of three weeks,  during which thero was some lively digging. We might have remained longer  but for tlio trouble between the captain  and his wife.  When the long search and hard work  brought nothing, Aunt Hetty called him  an idiot and bewailed their financial  ruin. Uncle Abel fired up and talked  back, and they had it hot and heavy for  an hour or two. At last the captain said  ho was going home. His wil'o declared  she would stay until she found the gold.  Everybody was drawn into tho quarrol  and had to tako sides, and the result  was that Captain Jones and three of tho  men took tho yawl and started off, and  four of us woro left with tho brig. I  must explain that the captain's movo  was made with a view of bulldozing his  wife. He expected to bo called back and  to seo Aunt Hetty knuckle down, and  when nothing of the sort happened ho  concluded to coast around the island and  make a further search for the treasure.  A gale of wind blew them out upon tho  broad Atlantic, and for 14 days they  "looked upon themselves as doomed.  They had but little water and provisions, lost mast and sail the first day  and woro ���������-within a week driven to cut  np their boots and chow the leather.  On tho fourteenth day, when all were  ready to givo up, they camo across tho  bark North Star. You may have read  that this craft, belonging to Boston,  came out of Havana with the yellow  fever aboard. She had a crew of eight  men, and she was hardly clear of Abaco  island when the aaptain, mate and two  others died, and the survivors got out a  boat and abandoned her. They landed  on the Florida coast, while tho bark,  loaded with sugar, drifted out to sea. It  was this. craft Captain Jones and his  men ran across after sho had been drifting for three weeks, and itis a matter  of record that the four men, after sailing her all over the Atlantic and meeting with a hundred adventures, finally  took a pilot 150 miles off Sandy Hook  and got tho bark safely into New York.  Captain" Jones got $n,0.00 salvage  money as his share, which was f-,000  more than tho Foam cost him.  My Aunt Hetty did not believe that  Uncle Abel meant to leave us and tho  brig, but when tho gale camo on all of  ns felt sure tho four men had met their  deaths. Wo did no work for five days.  Then, feeling that disaster had overtaken the quartet, and that she was a  _widow,__Aunt_Hetty__wiped-away��������� her-  tears and began to stir around. She still  believed in tho existenco of the treasure.  We had failed to find it because we had  not looked in the right spot. By her orders we weighed anchor and coasted  around to the south sido of the island.  There we opened up another bay and  cast anchor. Tho beach was of sand and  about 50 feet wide. Back of it was a  thick growth of forest. There wa3 a  lono tree on tho beach just above high  water mark, but no rock as described by  Drake. Nevertheless Aunt Hetty decided  that wo should go to work.  ��������� One of the meu paced off 21 paces in  threo different directions, and we began  to dig. Whon nothing was found, we  tried M paces, then seven, then dug up  the troo itself. As a matter of fact,,we  dug up tho entiro beach beforo we left  off, or at least so thoroughly prodded it  with iron rods that wo folt suro nothing  of value lay buried iu Use sands. We  woro working thoro 15 days beforo wo  gavo up. Aunt Hetty wanted to try another place, but tho two - Kennebunk  sailors had had enough of it and wanted  to go home. There was a settlement ot  'fishermen on the north sido of the isiaud, and almost every day wo had been  visited by a boat. The people knew  what, we were after and laughed and  ridiculed. The idea was to get threo or  four of theso fishermen to' help navigate  the brig to Porto Rico, where we could  replace them, but as soon.as they found  wo wero short handed, they refused to  .hip unless paid ������3 per day apiece. Aunt  Hetty was purser as well as cook, and  sho said she'd let the brig to. at her  moorings beforo she'd be robbed.  Our great good luck came out of a  quarrel. Aunt Hetty got angry because  wo refused to do more digging and had  a jaw with the sailors and attempted to  give me a whipping. When I ran away  from her, sho took the small boat and  *put off for tho brig, leaving tho three ot  us ashore. This happened.one forenoon.  The two men lay down in the shade to  sleep, while I walked along . the beach  to gather shells. In going to the west,  and after walking about two miles, carrying one of the iron rods on my shoulder as a weapon, I came upon a smaller  bay thau the ono the brig was lying in.  At tho������ head of this bay was another  sandy beach, and in the center of the  beach, jnst at high water mark, stood a  big rock all by itself.  NELSON  LOTS  A new Railway under Construction.

I had given up all  thoughts of the treasure, and why tho  idea came to mo to make a search hero  I cannot tell. I first paced seven stops  to tho west and probed the sand. Then  I mado it 14, then 21. Theu I returned  to tho rock and paced to the east. At  the third trial, or at 21 paces, I was  close to a largo tree which had lost most  of its branches in a hurricane. I bogau  prodding on tho north sido of it, where  some of the roots wore exposed, and I  hadn't worked five minutes bofore. I  struck something to mako my heart  jump. I know it wasn't a shell or a  stono by tho fool of it, and it didn't occur to mo that it might be a plank or  beam washed up by the sea. . So sun-  was I that I had ..struck a treasuro box  that I flung down tho rod and run away  to fetch tho sailors and tho shovels.  What did my discovery amount to?  Woll, wo*'took from under tho roots of  that tree four iron banded boxes full of  Spanish dollars, being ^24,000 iii all.  Tho money, judging from the dates on  tho coins and tho condition of tho boxes,  had been buried for at least 20 yoars,  and whether by.pirate or somo ono els.  we did not caro.

If  a miner's union therefore is formed for  the purpose of making a representative  body to settle any questions that may  arise with the employers, it follows  surely that an association of employers is equally necessary. The mine-  owner's federation could then settle all  disputes with the miner's union by  means of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act so that the development of  the magnilicent properties of this district may proceed without friction,  without all the calamities that have attended labour disputes in America and  elsewhere with an equal sharing of the  legitimate profits by all men.  If we are to have the one union, by  all means let us have Ihe other.  WANTED, A BUILDER.  city, the Mayor and the President of  the Board of Trade. These high and  mighty magnates "allowed" their  names to be used to embellish the occasion and ' no doubt' their bosoms  swelled a little' with the pride of their  position. At the function itself we can  fancy tiiese fine pprsons footing it in  the "royal quadrille." His worship,  the mayor, according to precedent  leading out Her Excellency of Aberdeen. The mayor of Victoria is not a  society man, nor would he appear to  be, from casual observation a good  dancer. It is possible that Jhe and his  brother big-wigs may have felt a little  out of place in the mazes of the giddy  dance. But their time came later.  After much waiting enlivened with  painful small talk, supper was announced. Then these nobles of the land, each  escorting a fair lady, and with eyes  aglow and watering mouth take their  seats at the festive board. There is no  hurry and scurry and grab for them.  They go in first and sit down to it and  you may bet your boots they ain't no  slouches at the business. Little recked  they of the reckoning to come. For  some reason or other the ball was a financial failure and there is a trifling  little bill of $850 outstanding for that  same supper and the names of all these  great functionaries have been added to  the original defendants. That supper  is likely to cost them dear.  Mu. Jamms Bkeen, who represents  the Montana Ore Purchasing Company  and who is credited with having arranged a contract with the Lel-oi Mining Company to take 37,500 tons of ore  dining the next two years has been  casting about to find out what to do  with the ore when he gets it. As  things stand at present it would apparently be best for him to put up a plant  nt Northport to treat it. Northport is  near, and even if the Ked Mountain  Railway is proceeding slowly, it is the  only line that is proceeding at all and  its movements may be hurried with  the prospect of 37,500 tons of freight to  begin with.  But there are reasons which render  it undesirable to treat the Trail Creek  ores'at Northport.' This ore is especially valuable as a flux for other ores;  were there no gold iu it at all it would  still have considerable value for this  purpose. It is specially valuable in  connection with the galena and other  ores of the Slocan. If it is smelted at  Northport all these valuable properties  it contains would be entirely lost. Mit.  . Brekn declares that Nelson is the place  to put up the smelter, because to Nel-  *- son al! the Slocan and. other ores, can  be brought so cheaply. As we pointed  out last week Nelson has the position.  Unfortunately the river from Trail  Landing tb Robson is unnavigable during the winter months. Theonething  wanted to decide Mk. Breex to put up  his works here is a railway from Rossland to Robson. That being accomplished he would begin to build here at  once.  - We understand that there is no difficulty whatever in building this line.  It is not a new proposal, and we have  reason to believe that a certain Railway Company is in possession of information as to the feasibility of the  route. The distance cannot exceed 18  to 20 .miles. The same inducement  which we mentioned as a spur to tin-  energies of the Red Mountain Railway-  Co. exists as a reward for any company to build iu here. There is practically a guarantee of 37,500 tons of  freight right off. To the C. P. R. there  is the further inducement of having  all this freight for its C. & K. branch  . as well. v-  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  Oscar Wilde has been senteuced to two  years hard labour, which is practically  equivalent to death.. No man, we believe  has ever survived eighteen months of it.  There is nil tbe difference iu the world  between "hard labour" smd "penal servi-  tute." At the latter a.man has to work  do harder than the average miner has to  do in this country. But hard labour involves the greatest bodily exertion for  many hours a day with no relaxation,  no let up, and food of the poorest kind.  Au English prison makes no respect of  persons. Once committed to its custody,  peasant or duke receives the same treatment, the same food. Millions of money  would uot subsitute milk for water in  the daily "skilly." There is no false  sentiment about it. It' a man offends  against the laws of bis country he has  got to be punished tor it. To a man of  Wilde's education and habits the., sentence is the most severe that could be  inflicted. Accustomed to a life of luxury  and ease aud relaxation, the rigid rou-  tiue and1 the uuceasiug toil mean hell.  KODAK   AGENTS.  Amateur Work Developed.  Photographic Snu'lrie* Supplied.

We have also got a prisoner here sentenced to a term of hard labour,- and he  may have compKnions iu distress before  long. The seutence which. he has to  undergo to expiate his.crime should be  something more than an enforced period  of loafing accompanied with good meals.  The hard labour should mean somethiug  harder than scrnbbiug the floors of the  government buildiuc or playing with a  broom about the yard. The condition of  the road leading down to the wharf was  a crying evil. Au attempt has been made  to remedy it by throwing on- it some  sandy clay from the bank alongside; It  might just as well have been left alone.  But in excavating tbat clay certain large  stones were rejected. Now these are  just what is wanted. They should be  carted into the jail yard and Mr. Prisoner should be invited to play upon them  with au appropriate hammer, his meals  beiug witli held until a certaiu tale of  work was accomplished. By these means,  during the six months that he will stay  with us, he might be of the greatest service and next wiuter our teamsters and  others who have to use that road will  have cause to bless-the outburst of crime,  and might even subscribe to reimburse  the parties who lost their pants and other  valuables, aud they might indeed go  further aud pray for a gentle stream of  similar criminals, who might appropriate  small pieces of apparel aud pay for them  by six months hard labour.

The Mining and Scientific Press of  San Francisco is usually well-informed  on mining matters, lint .it is hard to  understand where it picked up the fol-  TO  UNION  An effort is being made Ho  organize  a miner's union in. this district.   The  instigators  are the  Rossland Miner and  the Nelson Tribune.^   Whatever of good  or bad results from  the  formation oi  the union.must,be laid to their doors.  Experience within only a few miles on  the   other side of the  boundary  has  .shown that miner's unions mean ruin,  -death,' starvation,   murder, ;and   the  closing down* of otherwise profitable  mines.  But trades unions  are. undoubtedly  'good things when properly and legiti-  -mately handled,  and   much good has  ��������� resulted   to. workingmen  from  them.  At the same tune it  must  be remembered that all  the ,great strikes of recent years, which have brought ruin  ��������� to many, starvation to a  few,-untold  misery and suffering to helpless wives  and children and inconvenience to entire nations, have only resulted in keeping the  wor kingman  unemployed for  many months . and   have not bettered his position or injured the capitalist  one jot.   Fortunately few men inthis  country are married,  so that if   they  see fit to loaf about doing nothing they  . will have only their own empty bellies  to complain to them.  As we have said before a trades union-may be'a means of. amicably setting disputes and arranging any points  of controversy that may arise between  employed and employers. This desirable result can be arrived,at by means  of. the Arbitration and Conciliation  Act which entirely does away with  any necessity whatever for a union.  ; . Still, if a body of men like to subscribe  to pay Mb. Bogle or anyone else a  handsome salary to lead them into  trouble they are perfectly at liberty to  do so.  This  last sentence  containing   the  word "liberty," brings us to another  point.     "Whatever  may   be  the  case  across  the   bordei,    the  Queen Yictokia are born free,  l-Avi"i_g^riltti^a~pGTwl-ieir*is a strange  mixture of fact and fiction:  "The famous Poorman mine, in the  Trail Creek country, British Columbia,  for which P. Clark paid $22,(100 one  year ago, has just been sold by the  same man to an English syndicate for  $1,000,000. The Trail Creek country is  a gold mining district, extensive bodies  of free-milling ore running from $28 to  $90 per ton running through the entire  country, and since the developments  on the Poorman in the last year, hundreds, of new .discoveries have been  made. .So great is .the confidence of  Montana mining men in the district  that stocks are being floated in Helena  and Butte on mines that are nothing  but prospects. All a man has to do to  have his stock quoted is to give evidence that he is located, on the belt.  The district is about seventy-five miles  from tbe .ail-dad., but two lines are  now being constructed to put it inclose  communication with the outside world,  one a branch of the Spokane & Northern and the other from the Canadian  Pacilic.- Some of the best ores of the  district are rich enough to stand transportation by wagon to Tacoina."-  Tht last paragraph is very funny.  /ST.

We  know that in Manitoba and elsewhere  shooting is prohibited on that day. It  is not our intention now to go into the  merits of the case, suffice it to observe  that in British'Columbia we are still  free men, not slaves, and we intend to  remain so. Moreover encouragement  is actually given to fishermen to practice their gentle craft on Sunday. On  the E. & N. Railway reduced return  fares are issued on that day to Duncans, Sliawnigan Lake and Coldstream.  This, is an immense boon to many  whose occupation prevents them getting an outing on any other day. The  best fishing on out rivet is some 12 or  14 miles down, just this side of the Slocan Crossing. It is too far to walk and  there is no practical road to ride. Can-  not.the C. P.
