Hull Mines have begun excavating a site in the side of the bill at the  end ofthe tramway for the erection of  their ore bins,  A reference to our first column will  give some idea of the mining activity  around Nelson. Kighty-seven claims  have been recorded during the past  month.  A. IT. Kelly reports that work is  proceeding steadily on the Starlight.  bonded by Mr. A. 12. Humphreys. A  tunnel is being driven in to cut the  ledge, which it. is expected to reach in  Uti feet.  The result of the partial clean up at  tho Nelson Hydraulic Company's  works at Forty-Nine Creek is between  .$���������1,(100 and 85.000 for 120 hours work.  The exact amount cannot he known  until a certain part of the treasure is  refined." There is, however, on view at.  the Bank of British Columbia, a good  sized bowl half full of gold, a gold  brick of the value of .$2,000, a smaller  brick and a SjioO nugget. This represents the gold picked off the bed-rock in  front of the boxes and the contents of  the first two or three boxes themselves.  The company's manager, Mr.-' Jesse  Coulter, baking done all his heavy  work in Ihe shape of moving boulders,  etc., will now get to work on (he  banks themselves, and as there is stiil  plenty of water another good clean up  may be expected. The value of this  clean up may be estimated as the first  result of an expenditure of something  under i.20,000.  NEW DENVER. ,.''  The Slocan Star recommenced sending down ore on the 1st of July, employing 0 teams.  Dr. Brown has returned fiom the.  Hot Springs, where he was considerably benefitted.  Captain Adams, the owner of the  Britomarte and Ghamhlet claims, arrived to-day from the east-  Fires have' been raging in the Slocan  caused by the burning of brush on the  route of the Kaslo-Slocan railway.-  The educational department has  granted .$50 a month for the salary of  a school teacher At. New Denver and  .$40 a month for expenses.  A valuable ledge is reported' from  the Loudoun, a claim adjoining tho  Ruth. On this hitter the ledge has  been traced for 1,500 feet.  New Denver has a new clergyman,  who, with his wife and child, arrived  on Tuesday last. A reception was  givento him by several of the congregation on Tuesday evening.  On the 4th the Denver nine played a  scratch team called the Rubbernecks,  who had done some tall talking of  their prowess. The scratch team failed  to make ;i single run, while the Den-"  ver nine rolled up 20 runs before rain  put an end to the game.'' A most enjoyable sing song was afterwards held  at J. N. Moran, the captains, cabin.  July 1st was a great day at Silver-  ton. .Almost every * Den verite was  tlf_ie,~witlrtlreTex"c_ptioh~of-tli^bVise"  ball team. Along card of sports was  run through, the prizes principally  coming to Denver, though the tug of  war between Silverton and Denver  was, after a .splendid tussle, won by  Silverton. The Denver band attended  and added greatly to the pleasure of  the day. . " .  KASLO.  Kaslo river is swarming with lake  trout coming up stream and line sport  can be had any hour of t he-day. -  Mr. H. K. Porter has goue up Lo  Boundary Creek Lo look ovei some  gold properties for the company liu  represents,  Dr. Rogers, who looks after the rail--  way employes, is kept quite busy,  going over tlie line and .attending to  patients now in hospital.  A large quantity of logs have been  iloated down the river and are boomed  at tho mouth. They are for Porter  Bros.' contract of constructing the  railway company's wharf. ,  Mr. Ed. Becker, one of the owners  of the Montezuma, up south fork,  Kaslo, has gone up with some men to  begin operations and - expects -to he  shipping ore in a few months time.  -The city is erecting a" band-stand  adjoining Mr. Garland's store. The  money spent on this might be better  applied in putting down sidewalks and  clearing the , streets of rocks and  stumps.  _ R. Strathery has commenced work  on his claims on Ten Mile and from'  specimens brought down from this  property Mr. Strut hern has what will  in the near future'ihe one of the paying  mines of the district.  The last scow built by the railway  company here was launched on Tuesday last and is about completed. These  scows are expected to be in active service between here and Bonner's Ferry  in a few days.  The Messrs.   Porter   Bm--,. railway  contractors, have bonded   from   Robt.  XV. Yuill and partners, their claims on !  the south fork of Kaslo  Jtivcr, known ;  as Daisy and Black Fox.   The amount '  of bond is for .$ 15,000.    One  . hoiisaiid !  dollars was paid down on Monday la-t. ;  the balance to   be   paid   iu   six," nine, i  twelve and   eighteen   mouths.   They '���������  will put on a force of men at once, and  expect soon to commence shipping ore. ���������  Mr. A. Bishop, agent  of C. ������..   K. S. i  X. Co., was seriously hurt on Saturday J  nighl last. A rope was thrown fiom  the steamer Nelson on landing at the.  wharf by the deck hands, to which  was attached a largo iron hook. This  hook struck Mr. Bishop on the head  and he was knocked down and remained unconscious for some time.  His head was badly cut and bled freely  lint he is now over the worst and able  Lo again attend to his duties.  A very important mining case was  decided al the last sittings of (.he  County Court held here on .the (5th  inst., viz;, Atkins vs. Davenport. The.  plaintiffs claimed that they bad prior  location on claims known as the Rambler, whereas the defendant claimed  that the Cariboo mineral claim covered the same ground. The whole clay  was occupied in hearing tlie evidence  on both sides and the case was given  t o the jury about G p.m. After half an  hours deliberation they brought in a  verdict for the defendant.

Cassel, representing a company of Boston men largely interested  in mines, and acting as their agent at  Juneau, Alaska, leturned Thursday  from the Ti out Lake district, having  bonded the Great Northern, owned bv  Charles Holden, P. M. Walker, Tom  Downs and Hugh Ross. The amount  of the bond audits conditions are not  given, but as an evidence of its genine-  ness a cash payment of $3,000 has been  made. The Boston Company will begin development work within a few  days; and will make shipments of ore  either to Tacoma or Everett as soon as  it can be brought out to the steamer  landing at Thomson's. Mr. Cassel will  start this evening on his return to  Juneau.  TUO.rj'SO^S   1.AN1.1NG.  (Kootenay Mail.)  Everyone around Thomson's is busy  making roads to'suit the landing, and  clearing lots. Mr. Beaton has gone up  to Gait-tor Creek with his pack -train.  He expects to commence packing ore  from the Cup in a few days. Fish  Creek is pretty high, and-.J". Nelson  has been appointed t.o watch the new  bridge built last winter.  The owners of the Badshot have  struck a large body of ore, in that claim  assaying over $-l,0i)0, and also a seam of  what is said to be almost pure bismuth.  Samples have been forwarded to the  Prospectors Exchange and also to the  leading -smelters of England and the  United States. They have five tons of  ore on the dump and intend to ship a  carload as soon as possible. They  commenced to cut a trail today to the  claim.  The new wagon road to Trout Lake  wiU be finished in about a week; From  reports, all the contractors are doing  their work well.  Lt is reported that rich gold qnarlz���������  with gold visible Lo the naked eye has  been descoverd north of Trout Lake,  and that Andrew Abrahamson brought  in a sample to Trout Lake. We have  not heard particulars at time of willing. '* IL is also reported that S. McRae  discovered a large body of quartz supposed Lo contain gold,  COLL-SIO-*! IN QUEBEC.  Trains With Pilgrims Wrecked���������Twelve I'er-  smis Killed iind _Inny Wounded.-  Quebec, July 0.���������A large pilgrimage  from Sherbrooke, Windsor Mills and  Richmond left last night for the shrine  of St. Anne de Dauprey. They were on  two sections of a train, one   running a  -l'ewTiT'-|TuTe--b"el-iml1.^^^  section was standing at Craig's Road  station at 3 a. in., faking .water, when  the second section, passing 'the semaphore, dashed'into the rear-Pullman  coach of the lirst section, smashing if  to kindling wood and killing,' it is said,  everybody in the car. except the Pullman conductor", who jumped.--> '  The wreck was a frightful one. The  engine of the colliding train seemed Lo  rush up,- then turned over, pining  l'-ugiiiccrMcLcod underneath. The rest  of tlio second train .was derailed and  badly smashed up. Instantly after the  crash, the air was filled with the  shrieks and groans of the, injured and  imprisoned passengers. ��������� Thirteen dead  were taken from the wreckage.

During the' year ending 31st of May  last we kept careful statistics of the export, of ore and  other facts and  figures ,  showing the extent of development" and '  the capabilities of the  Kooteuay. mining  country.   To these we are now adding a !  general description of   the country, with '  maps am] other useful information which '  we intend to  publish  in  the shape of a '  pamphlet.   The figures  are all obtained ;  from official sources aud may .be  relied  on. and we  are issuing the work in the  hope that it will forward  the interests of  this   district.     We  have already   been  favoured with orders for   a considerable  number aud trust   that  we shall receive  the support of all who are interested in  the trade and commerce of the Kootenny .  iu   our   endeavour   to   make   its   great,  wealth raoie widely known. " j  (from our special Corrospondant.)  This camp is au extraordinary instance  of miners luck���������bad luck, unfortunately,  tit present, though it would only take a  very little to make everything nt Fair-  view as rosy ns men could wish. They  have the ore, they have the men, they  have not the money too. It is the capital  to develope which is wanted, for  which they have been waiting now for  seven or eight years.  At present there are only from 35 to 40  meu iu camp, and yet the discovery of  Messrs. Sheehan and S. Watkin's claim  dates back to 1888 aud there is one devel.  oped miue now showing enough free  milling ore to keep a 30-stamp mill going  for _ or 5 years tre.ting 50 tons a day,  This is McEachran and Mangott's property, known as the Morning Star. c  It is.the old Bntish .Columbian story  at Fairview. The men who have found  and are trying to develope the claims  are poor men, who.have no means of getting capital in. A strange feature in our  country is this, whereas an American, no  matter what his reputation is or how  stone broke he may be, cau invariably go  back east and get all the capital he  wants, a Britisher cannot do so. Local  capital does not exist, except iu the  hands cf one or two men, whose names  are ' almost unknown off Vancouver Isiaud, who owe everything to the Province and to whom the Province is never  liitely to'owe anything, and English capital will uot come into a country which  men fresh from home assert is looked  upon with.the greatest possibledistrust.  How is this state of things to be mended?  It is no good to sit upon our beam ends  and wait for our minerals to develope  themselves'. It is a miserably weak thing  to depend on our neighbours to develope  them and hand over our country to their  keeping. There is only one chance for  Biitish Columbia. Let our moneyed men  lake the trouble to visit our mining districts aud if there is an opportunity for  making money by developing prospects  lot .them show their confidence  in B.C. by iuvesting in u busiuess which  will remunerate them and help the  cquutry, aud lit our politicians squander  no more money upon empty show, but  spend every peuuy they can scrape together iu trails for the - prospector, roads  for the miner, and an energetic attempt  through well chosen channels will make  Biitish Columbia known in London,  Birmiugbam, Manchester, Glasgow aud  such places as these, lt is, we believe,  the truth which mining meu of the greatest experience, have spoken over and oyer  again: "There" never was a mining  couutry on the whole ofT God's earth so  ricli as B. C. and a terrible boom must  come here some day," but we cannot live  upon hope aud we have .had enough ol  .borrowing. The presence of men like  Col. Baker and Mr. Eberts in thecountr>  is a hopeful sign. If wc only get men  like them and get them often enough*  and keep them working, we can well afford to be content. But the ruiniug field  of B. C. is so wide that it will keep them  on the move from one end of the year to  the other if .they would leave no place  like Fairview unvisited.  The principal properties in hud around  Fairview are the properties of the Strath-  eyre* Mining Company (Brown Bear  Etc.); the Morning,, Star, owned by_ G.  "McE_cl'eryn> and Maugott; the Stem-  winder, owned by Sheehan and G. Wat-  kins; the Sunny Glen, owned by Elliott,  and the Sunflower, owned (we think) by  G. Watkiu.  The Slratheyre Compauy has a 10-  stamp.mill and some'very line buildings  (rather too fine for smelting to my mind)  on their property and have run for a  considerable time but have now closed  down. There are plenty of men ready to  tell you why, but it is better to hearas I  did that the owners have recently visited  their property and announced their intention of reopeniug-nt once.  The Morning Star, found fi years ago  by tue present owners/is a fine body of  free milling qnarlz, milling from 815 to  S20to the ton. By. steady work the  owners have made a mine of their pros-'  pect, on which they have now tw-i pui-  allel ledges uncovered, a shaft 85 fee-  deep aud another 75 deep. The ledges  aro ou opposite sides of thc gully aud  the owners intend, when thoy have gone  deep enough, to connect the two shafts  by a cross cut. The width of the oro  body is from 10 to 12 feet and it is satisfactory to learn that though the. owners  had to pay S50 per month for the use of  the company's mill they have made quite  a bit of money for thomselvi s.  ' The Stemwinder, higher up the gully,  is'similar in character to the Morning  Star and Jike the Star, has had a good  deal ofiwbrk done on it by the men who  have iield ou to it so long. There i. a  shaft now in the lead 50 feet deep and a  tunnel. 310 feet, The ledyc is about 5  feet Iwido and runs aboij.t $6.50 iu  gold.  The Smuggler, some little distance  from Fairview, is a smelting property,  the rock averaging over' .100. It was  not easy to obtain very full particulars as  to this claim as we had not time to visit  it, but it has been worked steadily since  I came aud Mr. Elliott informed us that  he had beeu^guarauteed SSo per ton free  of smelting charges by the smelters at.  Tacoma-and Everett.  Of the Sunflower, we only saw the assays of-M r. S. A. Guest, from which it [  would appear that theie is good rock in I  the "claim (one mile east of Fairview.' j  The assay."- showed S35.il in gold aud ,  SoLOS in "silver. j  If we might venture to do so we should ���������  suggest that au early vi.,if be paid to >  Fairview by auy of tho.-o who are politi- ;  caily interestedin the camp. It is worth i  seeing and its support worth having and i  it is not only rich in ore but in dis-;  content with political friends just now.]  Would not. a mining commission, to '  visit and report upon every camp in the j  country, be almost worth the money!  spent upon it. ' j  ��������� People in want of a refrigerator will do  well to consult an advertisement to be  found on oiir fourth page.  A paragraph of great interest to claim  holders on South Carpenter Creek will  be found in our columns this week.  The Revelstoke Mail says that there is  little doubt that a new railway bridge  will be built across the Columbia.  The Indies of the Presbyterian church  intend holding a garden party in the  cliurch grounds next Wednesday evening, July 17th. Admission free. Ice  cream and other refreshments will be  served during the evening. All are invited.  Without a day's interval the smoke has  followed the rain. Last Sunday was a  wet day. On Monday the opposite mountain was barely' visible for) smoke. Today is sultry with a hot wind blowing  that will soon clear out the last of the  snow on the high ranges.  The Columbia river at Hall's Landing  has been as high as it could get without  doing auy damage. Here at Nelson the  river is not so high by 15 feet as it was  last year. From Big'Bend some trouble  from high water is reported, the bridge  at Gold Stream being impassable.  A new boat is to be added to the  Ktotenay Lake fleet in the shape of the  little steamer Red Star, belonging to  Captain Angus Campbell. He has  brought her by rail to Revelstoke. From  there she finds her own way to Robson,  where she will again train it to Nelson.  She was launched last night.  We publish to-day certain extracts  from an article in the Chicago Inter-  Ocean by Mr. Clarence King," who is so  well known as an author, explorer and  scientific geologist. Such articles cannot  but give this country an immense impetus and they cannot be too widely  diffused.  Mr. R. T. L. Galbraitb, formerly M. P.  P. for this district and now Indian agent  at Fort Steele, has been in town during  the past week. Mr. , A. W. Vowell, of  Victoria, superintendent of the Indian  Department, arrived last night. These  gentlemen will proceed to the Kootenay  Valley and endeavor to reconcile the Indians to the reserve there laid, off for  them.   c'  Mr. George McL. Brown, the District  Passenger Agent of the C- P. R., who was  iu town on Thursday is endeavouring to  arrange a time table for the C. &'K. railway, which will avt id the inconveiience  which passengers sometimes'have to suffer from by having to make long wai's  at Robson. It is a difficult matter to  arrange as there are often large cargoes  of freight to be lauded from the boats  and the traffic does uot warrant a'double  train service. ���������   ���������������-  Following close on the heels of Mr.  Brown, District Freight Ageut, and Mr.  Kerr, General Passenger Agent of the C.  P. li., comes Mr.( George McL. Brown,  the well known District Passenger Agent  of the great railway. Aud a greater man  than these will be here .next week in the  person of Mr. Shaughnessy, Vice President of the railway. These gentlemen  do not come here to look at the scenery,  but to see how to play their hand in the  freight that Kootenay now has to offer.  All their eil'orts will be directed to keeping the profit on handling and treating  Canadian ores for Canadian people.  THE KOOTENAY MINES.  'Described    Hv     Clarence   Klnif.

ATTENTION!  ��������� We see by the Gazette of the _th inst..  and-by-the-plaus-in-the-Govern men t office here that the Kaslo and Slocan Railway Company have selected as part of  their land subsidy a block of land in the  Carpenter Creek valley at Cody and Sandon, one mile north and south and two  miles east and west, showing within that  area only the two mineral claims Blue  Jay and Loudoun.- There must surely be  sevetal more claims within that area, and  if so. it behoves their holders to communicate at once with Capt. Fitzstubbs  on the mattcr.'as the railway company is  not entitled to select land covered by  mineral claims. For those who may not  see the plan we may say, that taking the  northwest part- of the Loudoun as a  point, the company's'proposed area runs  about 40 chains north and 20 clinius west  therefrom, and it takes in - the' laud for  about 20 chains south from the Loudoun's south boundary, and it runs two  miles up to Cody with, as above said, a'  mile iii width. These blanket laud grants  in ii narrow valley with slopes studded  with mineral claims'are objectionable  aud wc mention the matter so that the  rights.of all parties may at least have attention.  LATE MLNING >'I_\VS.  deported Strike in Kust Kootenny .-Free Oold  on okuiiii|>aii Luke. *  -Several claims containing free milling gold ore have been taken up during  the past few days on the- west side of  the Okanagan Lake. There is a good  deal of excitement about it in Vernon.  Mr. John Grant, who has lately  been staying at Nelson, has btjnghl  the Maple Leaf a rich galena mine near  Lanark and is going in at.'once to Illeeillewaet. to expend $L0.000 in development, before putting in a tramway  and concent rat oi. The claim is a little over a mile from the main line of  the C. PR.  Just as we go to press the news of  the laid of a valuable ledge on the  Spilliiiiichme River reaches us. It is  reported to be 12 feet wide with an iron  capping, ivliiclt lower down gives place  to free milling gold quartz. Six assays have run from $17 to $170 per  ton. The ledge can be traced "for 0,000  feet. The district has been known for  some lime to bontain low- grade  galena, and the spot where the new  find has been made, is a favorite camping ground for prospectors on the  Bugy-a-boo Creek, about four miles  from tho junction of the Spillirnichine  and the Columbia.  Clarence King, the well known American geologist and explorer, the author of  so many delightful books, especially  Mountaineering in California" has been  visiting Rossland. He has sent a long  letter to the Chicago Inter-Ocean of  which we make the following extract;  A new and valuable miuing field is in  process of active development ifa the  mountainous region of British Columbia,  the westernmost member ofthe Dominion  of Canada.  In the latitude of Denver and San  Francisco the Cordilleras of North Ameri-  reach their widest expansion, a breadth  from east to west of 1,000 miles. From  that region northward they rapidly narrow, until at the British boundary the  mountain belt is only 500 miles. Here  this compressed mass of ranges is highest near its eastern edge, facing the great  plains, and declines in a broken and rugged slope to the Pacific.  The section lying along both sides of  the international line, extending southward into the United States 100 miles  and into British Columbia 150 miles,  possesses many points of structural anil  economic interest. So far the more important mineral discoveries are within  British territory.  Access to the region is gained by tie  Canadian Pacific railway, which forms  the northern boundary of the mining  territory and the Great Northern and  Northern Pacific systems, which skirt its  southern margin, besides several hundred miles of navigable waterways, including the Columbia river and its larger  tributaries and several important lakes.  The Spokane Falls & Northern railroad enters the region from the south.  Although this is British territory, it  is curious to note that nearly all the exploration and discovery is being done by  American prospectors, and about all [ the  development by American miners. ��������� The -  British Columbian profits in various  ways, but he stands dazed before) the '  audacity and knowledge of the mining  adventurers from the State's.  Thus far only a general prospecting  reconnaisance in force has been accomplished for the whole region south of; the  Canadian Pacific railway, resulting- in  the discovery of many valuable and some ���������  brilliant mines. But it is already'. certain that the whole field described is, one  broad mineralized area. The chief points  of demonstrated value are the district of  Slocan, in the West Kootenay division���������  where excellent s.lver-lead mines are being, exploited and where the two metals  occur in unusually high percentages in  veins, .with every evidence of strong ex- .  tension and permanency���������and Trail  Creek, in West Kootenay six miles west  of the Columbia and about 10 north of  the boundary. . At both of these points  towns are rapidly building and large  permanent works of development arebe-  gun. . It" is the mines of Taail Creek,  near the town of Rossland, which for the  moment are attracting the widest public  iuterest from the fact that their veins  carry an extremely rich and unique type  of (.old ore.  Another valuable gold, silver and copper district is Boundary creek, 80 miles  west of Rossland, just within British territory. Still another "camp" is now. the  object of a "rush." Slate creek, this new  gold centre, isiu the state of Washington, ^  high iu the Cascade range, and but a. few '  miles south of the boundory.  All these are strung along in a single  belt of precious metal deposit, which extends from Alberta to the Pacilic. They.  are the first fruits of the new campaign, c  -Euough-is already-kuown:to warraut^the-^-1"  conclusion that the whole of the province  is more or less mineralized.  As mentioned, the Slocan ores carry  higher per ceutages of lead and silver  than those of any district in the United  States, and are thus able, in spite of their  remoteness, to compete in the smelting    '  market of this country, paying the federal  "  import duty and going ns far as Kansas  City.   Moreover, their abundance is of  great importance, in  view of the ��������� rapid  exhaustion of rich silver-lead deposits'in  '  the States.    At the depressed  value of  silver and panic price of lead  Slocan is  still able to produce the two metals at a *  profit.     .  ' "' .       , '" '  THE TRAIL CREEK MINES.     *'  The Trail Creek gold mines -were discovered four years ago, but their regular  development dates from 1893. Their  mincralogical character is so peculiar  that a few points of technical interest  may be mentioned. From the-Columbia river westward exteuds a .chain of  ancient outbursts of a dark-green, beavey  and exceedingly hornbleudic diorite,, an."  irruptive rock often in other countries  associated with occurrences of the preci- .  ous metals. These mountain .masses of  diorite are riven in several 'directions,  but mainly on east aud west lines, 'by . a v  numerous series of fissure veins filled -  with a massive mixture of iron and copper sulphide carrying from one to three  ounces of gold to the ton, from 5 to 10  per cent of copper and a small varying  amount of silver, usually less than 10  ounces. The ore consists of pyrite, chnl-  copyrite and pyrrhotite, not often crystal-  ized, but usually in a solid, amorphous  mass. ' As developed," the veins show  great volume, the solid ore free from  gangue aud ranging from 5 to 12 feet"  thick. When it is added that th_ ore  chimneys, though not very long, are very  frequent and near together, it will be realized that here are the elements of a new  and extremely rich type ef gold formation. Such ores are obviously out of the  range of amalgamation processes,' bat  are entirely suited to matting and smelting. The few hundred tons which have  thus far been extracted, largely in the  course of development,(i have been ���������  smelted at Butte and Helena, whither  they go by *be Spokane Falls <fc Northern  aud Northern Pacific roads. The smelting resnlt- show a remarkably uniform  yield, which is found Jo average about  SIS in gold and (> per cent, of copper.  Nowhere else in America are there large,  strong veins of this chemical nature. '  Such ores were heretofore -rather a min-  eralogical euriosity. "  Several admirable mines at Trail have  passed the   experimental stage and are  ���������  now realizing an important production. THE MINER NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 13,  1895  THE WOMAN   "AD." SOLICITOR.  __.  Clever   Ruse  Throhjfli   Which   She Accomplished ll,;.  Purpose.  The roason why so many womeu fail  as advertising solicitors and agents is  because they havo no conception of tho  meaning of the word "time" as applied  to business people.  There is lots of money in it, more  than in almost any lino of work connected with publishing, aiid a woman  Starting out to mako a living for herself  in this liuo of work must como down to  business principles ut once and forget  that she was ever entitled to more courtesy than is shown from mail to man.  A businessman's time is counted by  the minutes, each ono of which is worth  bo much money to him. When a woman, no matter haw attractive, makes  her way iuto his privato dflico and takes  ���������up 60 much of his valuable- timo that he  Is either compelled to give her what she  ���������Wants or treat her with a rudeness he is  not accustomed to doing sho gains very  little in tho long run. A small order  given under these circumstances closes  the door forever after against hor.  But,- on tho othor hand, if she asks  and i3 granted au interview, a few well  chosen, terso sentences, stating her or-  rand, will, if it does not get the order  at onco, make a good impression, and  in all probability tho second visit will  do much more. I do not mean that one  visit is to suffice for all time, but by a  liberal use of tact and a constant remembrance that a business man's time  is worth so much to him much may be  gained. At all events, what one cannot  accomplish that way it is almost impossible to get any other way.  To show exactly my idea I will relate an incident, which was told mo, of  a busy woman who earned a very fair  income hy getting advertisements for  one of New York's dailies.  She had been working at it for nearly  six months when she was told one day  to go and see a prominent linen dealer  of Twenty-third street and try if sho  oould get an order from him.  She had hoard of him as being a queer,  cantankerous individual and extremely  bard to approach, and she knew if she  . stated her errand she would not be able  to see him at all.  So, assuming.a confidence sho did not  feel,' she went boldly up to tho store  one morning, and seeing a floorwalker  stepped up to him and said in an "acquaintance of long standing"<sort of  voice: "Has Mr. C - - come down yet?  I have looked all over the store and  cannot find him."  "Oh, yes, miss," tho man answered,  thinking she was an old friend, "he  ���������was in his private office, over there, a  few moments ago."  "Thanks, very much," she answered.  "I will go over and see him a minuto  then,", and she walked deliberately over  and into the office where he was sititng.  Now, she simply trusted to her good  luck to get a satisfactory interview, and  stepping up to the desk she said as  sweetly as possible, "Good morning!"  "Good morning, young lady! What  do you want?" he said gruffly.  "Only to speak to you a moment, if  you aro not too busy," she answered,  With some trepidation, for he seemed n  very tough customer to begin on.  She had been told before going that  no one else had ...ever been able to get  anything from him," so it was a matter  of pride with her to succeed.  "My time is worth $5 a minute," he  eaid very decidedly, as if that settled  the question, "and.I cannot afford to  ��������� waste'it. Good morning!"  . She felt that it was now or never.  She had just received her week's salary  and .had it in her pocket.  " "Very well, sir," she answered  promptly. ' 'I will take threo minutes,  if you please."  Taking out her pocketbook and watch,  _shVp_t*^th'.e.".|o"h"ill_"bh��������� th"o~desk~a_f_,"  her watch open on top, and sitting down  on a chair beside him she began to" talk..  She says ho looked up iu astonish-  . ment, with a sruile on his. face, and  when tho threo minutes were up by "the  watch sho had obtained" an order for  several weeks and mado a friend of him,  * which stood hor in good stead many a  time. Of course ho did not take tho  money, and she knew he would not, but  sho caught him by licr promptness and  did a good'stroko of business..  She said, though, that sho would have  paid the money liko a man if he had  taken it and considered thc order she secured cheap at that.���������Printers' Ink.  BURNAND OF  PUNCH.  Chat With a Man Who _~ii.ni.she. Alleged  Humor Once a Week.  When I wroto P. C. Burnaud asking  him to grant an interview, I did it with  trepidation, having heard that he objected to tho modern inquisition of ��������� the  interviewer. My oloquenco evidently  prevailed, howovor, for ho replied tbat  I might havo tho satisfaction of executing my editorial commission'. It could  only bo a "sketchy" affair, as at tho  present timo ho was so very busy that  his leisuro moments were few and precious. As probably I know as much  about him as was necessary, I should  lot him off easily.  I had to bo contoured with merely  catching a glimpso of him in his comfortable study at tho "Boltons." Ho  was preparing to start <.II for tho Savoy,  whero ho was occupied in rehearsing  _jis new pieco.  "Of tho many comic papers Punch is  decidedly tho only ono that appears to  excite a vaguo, mysterious interest in  tho bosom of tho reading public. What  is tho cause, Mr. Burnaud?"  "Probably the hebdomadal dinner, at  which it is supposed, no doubt, that the  jokes' are handed round to be digested."  "When was Punch started?"  "Punch was started in 1841, a year  of three eventful P's���������the introduction  of penny postage and the birth of the  prince. It was to bo a comic chroniclo  ofthe times."  "And its first editors?"  "Were Mark Lemon, Shirley Brooks  and Tom Taylor."  In their identical chair now sits Mr.  Burnaud, who no doubt, through his  othor works, is better known tothe general public than his predecessors. Francis Cowley Burnaud was born on Nov.  29, 1836. His very earliest years showed a promise of literary talent. At Eton  his little plays were acted in his tutor'.  room, and at the age of 14 his "Guy  Fawkes' Day," was produced at Worthing. He carried his energies on to Cambridge whero ho founded the A. D. C.,  which still flourishes.  Mr. Burnaud quite mado up his mind  that the church should bo his profession.  And from reading at Cuddesdon he  passed to St. Charles' seminary to study  under the late Cardinal (then Dr.) Manning, which resulted in his discovering  that the cure of souls was not his vocation. His earliest contribution to Punch  dates back to 1855, when he sent in a  drawing which was reproduced by the  great John Leech. Though the stage has  always possessed a great attraction for  him, journalism equally claims him as  one of its successful lights. With what  other papers was he connected? He once  edited a small paper, The Glowworm,  when Arthur A. Beckett was his "sub."  He contributed a good deal to Fun. In  fact, it was through -Fun not seeing his  idea of a literary joke that brought him  directly in connection with Punch.  "What was the idea?" I asked him.  "The burlesquing of popular novelists of the day. Of theso 'Mokanna' appeared in Punch Feb. 21, 1863. It was  attributed to Thackeray. The idea regularly caught on, and-soon after that I  joined the staff, on which for a long  time, owing to my youth, I was called  'The New Boy.' "  The new aud original style of "Happy Thoughts" won him popularity as a  true wit. Its very simplicity of quaint  humor appealed to all. "Happy  Thoughts" and Bnrnands are synonymous, and not undeservedly so. The  same keen sense of humor runs through  every lino of his writing.  "When did you become editor?" was.  my next question. .  "I succeeded to the editorial chair in  1880. Though a post of honor, tho life  of an editor of a comic journal is not  exactly a happy one, for many peoplo  seem to imagine that a joke has only to  be made, and it becomes 'good enough  f6r~Pim^h!'"The~h6me~of~the~fe^bre'f__e"  ny story lies in the waste paper basket  of Tho Punch office.''���������Loudon Sketch.

"Your shoes half soled whilo you  wait" is a Seventh avenue sign which  recalls many pleasant momories to the  man who was raised in the back country and paid periodical' visits to the  crossroads cobbler during boyhood days.  Tiie face of an old man with all of* his  hair ou his chin, aud that whito with  age and streaked with tobacco juice,  sitting on. a low shoomakor's bench in a  littlo back kitchen of a log house in the  woods rises beforo 1110 as I pass. I smell  tho sole leather soaking in tho tub near  tho redhot kitchen stove and hear the  play of tho shining hammer as tho old  man beats tho stiff cowhide on his knee.  And such knees I Many a timo have I  seen him crack walnuts on them with  no other protection than his shoomakor's  apron. Tho old man always performed  that trick for my boyish edification as I  sat metaphorically at his feet of a cold  winter's ni'glit and my shoes were being  half soled while I waited. It seemed to  givo him as much pleasure as it did me.  He was a philosopher who had seen  much of  tho  great world and had retired from it to tho low cabin in the  backwoods of northern Indiana, and as  he'drove the boxwood  pegs home with  certain aim lie awoke in me tho overmastering desire tp see some  of that  Kame world on my own   account.

The differences [of level owing to the  annual spring floods are a matter of  engineering and present no material  difficulty.  At the same time, the steamer-- that  are building and those that are to be  built hereafter, will find .110 lack of  employment. The population of the  Kootenay country will be large and  people will always want to be travelling from place to place. The amount  of inward freight will be also considerably increased, and this being consigned to various points will still employ the present system.  It is safe to say that in proportion to  our age anil our population there are  no better steamer, than ours on any  inland waters, and a trip on our beautiful lakes amid the everchanging  scenes of the great Selkirk mountains  is already beginning to attract the  ubiquitous tourist to our shores.  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  THE SMELTING BONUS.  At the time of writing there appear-  to be every probability that the Dominion Government, will carry, the  motion for giving a bonus for ott*  smolting in Canada. It is to be a sum  not. exceeding $30,000 per annum for  five years to be paid for all ore smelted  in Canada at a maximum of 50 cents a  ton. Smelters, to participate in this  benefit must lie blown in before the  1st of July, 1S90. At present the Pilot  Bay smelter is the only one going. Its  capacity is 100Ions a day, which would  exhaust about half the bonus. If another 100 ton stack is put up, say by the  Hall Mines, that would absorb the  other half ofthe bonus at its maximum  of 50 cents a ton. Tt is nearly certain  that a large customs smelter of at  least 200 tons a day capacity will be  started somewhere in this district  pretty soon. That will reduce the  bonus to 25 cents a ton all round  at once. In other words, there  is no certainty in it, nothing on which  possible investors in this line can rely.  It may even result in giving only a  few cents a ton to manufacturers,  which, while it costs the Dominion a  good round sum, will do nobody in  particular auy good at all.  The Nicaraguan Canal Commission  has completed its inspection of the  route of the proposed canal and is now  travelling on the line of its ill-fated  predecessor at Panama. It is satisfactory to note that no hindrance to  the labours of the commission has resulted from climatic conditions.  TIIE FUTURE OF STEAMBOATING  ON KOOTENAY WATERS.  A celebrated Manchester merchant  once said that if his rivals in trade  were obliged to lift their goods only  one foot high every day, he would  fear no competition from them. It  was to avoid the necessity of doing  this that thc Manchester ship canal  was built, oue of the most stupendous  and costly works of modern times. The  story exeiupl ii.-- a prime axiom of  commerce. In these days of keen  competition the saving of every fraction of a cent is a matter of the first  importance, and the ingenuity of man  has during the last fifty years succeeded in reducing the one great item Jin  all commodities, transport, to a minimum.  At present transport figures as the  largest item in the bill of expenses  that lies between the ore in the vein  and the dollar in the owner's pocket.  The bulk of ore to be moved has  _ reached an_ amount���������beyond-thecapa-  bilities of the present fleet on these  waters, and the Columbia & Kootenay  Navigation Company is, with the  characteristic energy of its wellknown  manager, Captain Tiioup, hastening  to meet the increased trade. Two new  steamers are on the stocks.  Judging from appearances the output of our mines during the next  twelve months will again overtax the  capacity of the boats. But mine owners, as their possible output grows  larger, will no longer be content to  pay away' so many dollars a ton to  have their ore carried hundreds, or even  . thousands of miles to be smelted. Reduction works will be statted and  worked here in this district itself.  Even then, large quantities of ore will  have to be carried about the lakes and  rivers which afford such excellent  means of internal communication. The  present wheelbarrow and shovel system will be quite unequal to cope with  the amount of freight requiring to be,  moved. To persons familiar with New  York haibour, the river at Detroit, or  at Sacramento, or the Columbia at  Kalama, or half*a dozen other places,  the future means of transport is clear.  The ore will be delivered from the various mines into tramways or railways,  whence it will be tipped, without  handling, into bins at the. water's  edge. From these bins it will be shot,  again without handling, into cars on  large" floats or barges, each capable of  carrying ten or a dozen, or. even a  larger number of cars. These barges  will be towed by comparatively small,  but powerful tugs to the required  point, where the cars will be hauled  on to terra firma, again avoiding any  handling of the ore.  For1 transport of this kind, the  Kootenay Lake and Columbia River  from the head of the Arrow Lakes  down to the mouth of the Kootenay  River, are especially suitable. There  is never any sea on them to speak of.  We have seen it much rougher in New  York harbour, with dozens of craft  loaded with railway cars rushing in  every direction, than  it ever is here.  With Mr. Joseph Chamberlain at the  Colonial oflice. the schemes that have  so long and so patiently been fostered  foi Imperial Federation are likely to  be pushed ahead. At an interview of  the new minister with the representatives of the'various Colonies, Sir  Charles Tupper, the Canadian High  Commissioner, referred at length to  Mr. Chamberlain's services in the negotiations for the Treaty of Washington in 1888.  "If you will guarantee a bonus of  $100,000 I will guarantee you a smelter  at Nelson right away." So said a responsible smelting man to a representative of The Minek on Wednesday  last. It reminds us that there appeared in our contemporary some time  iigowhatat first sight looked like a  proposal to guarantee this very  amount. Now is the time for them to  come to the point. We shall be happy  to introduce the parties, taking as our  commission the gratitude of the community.  Our contemporary, the Kootenay  Mail, draws attention to the fact that  the Government at Ottawa talks very  grandly about the C. P. R. being a  part of the Imperial highway round  the world, and point's out the extreme  facility with which Canadians can go  'to japan. Yet there are three disconnected bits of railway in the Kootenay  country that begin nowhere and lead  to no place in particular. As a consequence, what is probably the richest  mining region in the world, the property of Canada, is not in touch with  the C. P. R. This is all very true and  we think that it will be much better  when all these bits of lines are joined  up, but we can hardly lay the fault at  the door of the Dominion Government. It is doubtful if that body  knows where the Kootenay is.  Canada's aggressiveness. The tone of  the paper is much more aggressive  than any British land hunger and  only helps to st ir up those internal ional  jealousies which are so much to be  deplored. As a matter of tact, we  think lhe whole affair is easily explained, though it may not be so easily  settled. It appears to be the result of  the inaccurate geographical knowledge  of the early voyagers to Alaska. For  instance, in the old treaty the boundary line was defined as starting from  the most southerly point of Prince  of Wales Island and then proceeding  north along the Portland Canal. Now  recent surveys have shown that if you-  go north from Prince of Wales Island  you will not go anywhere near the  Portland Canal, but 100 miles to the  westward of it. A difficulty of this  kind does not seem to us insuperable  and certainly should not be made the  basis for abuse of England.  It is very satisfactory to see so  prompt a statement of the financial  position of the Dominion Day celebration committee. It "gives the public confidence in the proper handling  of the funds. When men like Mr.  Clements take upon themselves the  onerous business of collecting subscriptions the public may rest assured that  they will not be diverted from their  proper use. Mr. Clements has duly  handed the money over to the committee. It is not quite enough to meet  the expenses, but the small balance required will probably be easily raised.  We find that the profit on pool selling  is not an asset of the committee's as  it ought to be. The people who ran it  may well be asked to pay up the deficit and they ought in the future to be  made to pay a percentage ou their takings lo the general fund. When this  shortage is made good, the committee  will then, we suppose, publish an account properly audited, by an independent and competent man showing  that the liabilities as expressed in the  statement already published have been  duly paid.

RIESTERER'S  BREWERY *  MILL STREET,  NEL8ON, B. O.  Is now able to supply the town and district with  a first-class quality of Draught and Bottle   :  BEER  The stories one reads in the American papers about foreign affairs are  often so silly that one wonders why an  intc-lligent" mass of people like the  American people take the trouble to  read such twaddle.. In the San Francisco Examiner there is a story about  the Cuban rebellion, which; by the  way is still going on. It is gravely  stated that General Campos commanding thc government troops, is sending  a train load of poisoned provisions and  carl ridges, without powder into the  country on purpose to be captured by  the enemy. Of course, the poisoned  food business if it was true would put  him some, fine morning, with his eyes  bandaged, up against a dead wall with  a firing squad of twelve men in front  of him. The powderless cartridge fake  would be a simple waste of jnoney.  Editors who print this, kind of stuff  should be sent to a home for Lost  Children and entertained with a rag  doll and Noah's ark for the rest of  their childish existence.  To have a smelter built at Nelson,  has been almost the chief wish of her  citizens for years.,. And yet the prospect of having one put in by the Silver  King people fails to please. The reason is simple and sound. Nelson has  swarmed during the past week or two  with smelter men. . Kansas City,  Omaha <*_ Grant; Tacoina, and Montana Ore Purchasing Co. have all had  their representatives here. Their object has been to try to make a deal for  the Silver King ore. Had any one of  them succeeded they would have put  in a smelter not only large enough for  that ore but for a considerable customs  work as well. The.undpr taking would  have been in the hands of th bes  practical men in that line of business  in the world, and Nelson would have  become a-.well known smelting point.  Other, smelters would undoubtedly  have followed in the footsteps of the  first .\Ve still believe that therewill be  two or more smelters here eventually,  butit looks at presentas if theiradvent  would be delayed.

The Oregon Express running between  San Francisco and Portland was held up  by three bandits and robbed on July 1st.  The robbers secured about $25,000 in  cash and valuables. The incident was  attended with all the usual features.  Three masked men and a few confederates probably on one side and -i trainful  of cowards on the other.  The Cornell University crew which  went to England to take part in the vari;  ous events at the Henley Regatta has  been most hopelessly beaten. In the first  heats for the Grand Challenge Cup they  were drawn against a crew of tbe Leander  Rowing Club. Owing to some confusion  at the start Leander did not get away at  all and Cornell paddled over the course.  Ou the second day the American crew  was pitted against a boat from Trinity  Hall, Cambridge, and were beaten out  and out. No less than three of the Cornell men dropped their oars from-* sheer  fatigue and one fainted clean away. The  Trinity Hall men won as they pleased.
