(From our Exchanges.)  The value ot the timber used in the  Comstock mines from their commencement is fifty-five million dollars.  Charles "Lunl is managing a small hydraulic plant about two miles below the  Van Winkle, owned by a Vancouver company and Is doing very well.  A*train of mules have been sent iu to  Alberni and they will pack out several  tons of ore from the Mineral Creek  Gold'Mining Company, which will go to  Tacoma to be tested.  Leave to appeal from the decision of  the Supreme Court to the Privy Council  has been granted to the appellants in the  E and N. vs. Bainbndge case, which involves the title to the precious metals in  the E. & N. Raihvay giant.  Five Vnncouveritcs, J. R. Hamilton,]}.  F Ileney, R. Herd, R. Pritchard, J.  Ctuininguam aud S. Furguson have  struck it rich in Cariboo ou Peters nyer,  four miles from the town of Stanley.  The quintette claim Lluifc their's are the  richest modern Cariboo claims in existence. " One rough' clean up has been  made with very s:itisf;ictoiy lesulls.  It is said that the Tread well-Bear* s  Nest-mine, iu Alaska, which once gave  promise of beiug lhe richest miue in the  world, and which was recently purchased bv a German and English syndicate for "81,000,000, is pioviug mipro  ductive.- Charges of fraud are alleged  against the sellers. -The Nest adjoins  the Treadwell miue, aud the purchasers  hoped to reach the Treadweiyodge, but  the latter is now said to be a pocket produced by an eruption and without ledges.  The last clean up at the Van Winkle  mine amounted to ������1,400. This seems  very small for such a huge, plant, but it  is a long way over and above expenses,  aud in time they may come iuto. ground  =-that will nay large dividends. However,  the company could not see it that way,  and,' therefore, . they leased it to their  -supcrinteudeut,.Mr._BiLOphy.   He is con-.  ��������� _-*U_.p\J_____*_-i_'" ��������� ��������������������������� -j *���������      mi L   fident that the old mine will yet pay.  Thev are in a bank of tine gravel at  present and are not bothered with  boulders, which is nu important thing.  The production of refined lead in the  United States in 1894 was 219,000 short  tons. The product of 1893 was the largest on reco.d--229.00- short tons. The  lead markets of the United States are  supplied from four sources���������domestic  mining," divided between the soft lead  ores of the Mississippi Valley and the  silver lead ores of the Rocky Mountains;  Mexico and British Columbia ; base bullion sent from Mexico for delivering aud  refining in bond in this country ; and  refined foreign lead. The total domestic  production for 1894 is estimated at 132,-  700 tons.  ...  The list of foreign and home companies, heavily capitalized and having for  "their mission the development of British  Columbia's mineral resources, has received live important additions duriug  the past week, as noted in the Gazette of  vesterday- The companies tire the Iron  Horse Mining and Milling Company and  thoKooteuai Mining and Milling Company, both - of - Spokane,' and each  capalized at 8100,000; the Crown Point  Miniug aud Milling Company, also of  Spokane, with capital of ..500,000; the  Western Prospecting and Promoting  Companv. of Vancouver, S100,000; and  the Kooteuay Consolidation Miuing Company, of the same city, ������500,000.���������Colouist.  COUNTY COUNT IN IJOSSLAND.  .The County Court began its sittings in  ' Rossland yesterday with a large docket  of miniug cases to-clean up. It is still  sitting to-day. Au important decision  was given in Atkins vs. Coy as to -what is  the root of title under the 1892 act. The  judge holds that the 1882 act changed  the root of title from priority of location  to priority of record, and that claims  located under that act must be governed  accordingly. The act has "since itself  been repealed and the root. of title |at  present is considered by legal.experts to  be priority of location in spite of certain  very' ambiguous clauses iu the act. The  case of Spellman vs. Ruel heard at last  court was also decided. It was held that  the expiration of Euel's license caused a  forfeiture of his interest to his partn.-s  and his agreement for -sale to Spellman  ���������was voided on that account. Men who  have bonds on claims should be careful  to see to it that the licenses of the original locators do not- run out. The full  text of Judge Spink's decision iu AtkiDS  vs. Coy will be printed next week.���������Rossland Miner.  N_W UEXVBK,  Ore has been struck in the lowest  tunnel of the Alpha about 18 inches  solid.  It. C, G'i.iiipbcll-Joh'nsoii, of Vancouver, lias joined tlie myriad of prospectors :it Llie foot of the lake.  The R. ii. Lee mine, which is situated above the Washington, starts  shipping ore on Monday next. This is  a new producer. ?  Messrs. Marpole and Abbott went up  on the train Tuesday to Three Folks  and will look over the line of the  t oad to Cody Creek.  The concentrator is now running on  Cumberland ore and this mint- will  return by. the end of the year the purchase price,  $25,000.  The representative of Messrs. Car-  gill & Co., of the" Okanogan, has paid  a visit to Denver and Three Forks and  has placed several good orders for  Okanogan produce.  Among the claims located on Lemon  Creek during the last week will be  noticed two in the names of R. Mar-  polo and H. Abbott. Tbe prospector  who has been out for these gentlemen  has made several promising locations  and hopes to do some work on-the  claims before the snow Hies.  HOSSLAND.  hanging about  Smelter men are still  Trail Landing.  Having got their new machinery into  working order the Le Rio expects to put  out about 100 tons a day.  The people who have bonded the Iron  Horse are calliDg for tenders for the  sinking of a shaft 100 feet deep.  On Thursday of last week the forest  fires threatened the safety of the town,  and for a time the danger was extreme.  The inhiibitants, however, set to work  with a will to fight the fire and after a  considerable struggle their efforts were  successful.  One of the stages on the Northport  road had a narrow escape from a serious  accident last week. It met an ore team  in a narrow part of the road nnd the  horses shied and 'bolted over the stsep  siding. The coach and horses were  brought up some 50 feet below by trees,  aud fortunately no one was hurt.  LOCAL  NEWS.  SPORTS   AT   NELSON.  Mr. Charles Wilson, Q. C.. of "Vancouver, and Mrs. Wilsonare staying at  the Phair.  Messrs. Marks and Robson,-have resigned their seats at the board of the  Nelson hospital.  Mr. A. E. Hodgins, C. E., is laying  out the railway tracks for the new  smelter. The ground is exceedingly  rough and uneven and -the job is by no  means an easy one.  Mr. Findlay. the representative of  the British Columbia Iron Works  Company of Vancouver, informs us  that it1.has been definitely decided to  erect a foundry at Nelson.  Sir Joseph Trutch, chairman of the  Hall Mimes L'd, and Mr. Win. C.  Ward, superintendent of the Bank-of  British Columbia, arrived in Nelson on  Tuesday.  Electricity is coming more and more  into use iu mines, both as anilluminant  and a motor. Alessrs. Cuntiingham &  Iliuton, ot Victoria, are .prepared _tp_pu___  in installations and will send all information on application. .  Mr. W. F. McCulloch, who was for  "several years the Government assayer at  Victoria and who is well known in this  district, has decided to establish himself  iu Nelson as an assayer. Busiuess in this  line is exceedingly brisk at present and  Mr. McCulloch should do well.  An instance showing the price, we up  country people pay for things cropped  up the other day. The salt we use  comes from Liverpool in England, and  costs at Vancouver, including freight,  duty and every possible charge,,$10 a  ton. The railway freight on it. from  Vancouver to Nelson is $13.10 per ton.  The firm of Simpson & Co., late the  [nternationalCoininission Co. impoited  5 car loads of groceries and feed stuffs  last week. They have now bought T.  K. Hurry's entii. crop of potatoes,  amounting to over 500 sacks, which  they tire prepared to sell at prices  advertised in another column. Farming is n, new industry in Kootenay aud  deserves support.   *  Mr. Hopkins, of the firm of Baker,  Crawford & Co.. of-Vancouver, has  been in the Kootenay pushing the business of lrs'lirni. Their catalogue of  goods includes many lines. Iron and  coke from England and ore bags from  Calcutta seem to he the chief articles  suitable "to this district, Mr. Hopkins,  like all other commercial visitors from  thi' C. ast, complains of the "freights,  and hinted that the American lilies  were more liberal than our own.  The Rev. Charles W. Gordon, minister of St. Stephen's,   Winnipeg,   and  secretary  of   the   British   Canadian  Northwest missions,   is,    in company  with the Rev*. Mr. Robertson, visiting  the .various    missions    of   the   Presbyterian church in the west.   Mr. Gordon is one of a party of five Canadian  students who after a session in Edinburgh determined to wheel from Antwerp to Paris via Geneva.   In    their  course lay the great Alpine ranges of  Switzerland, but after, a series of re- ]  markable .limbs they made their way j  across rhe Alps, winning Lhe distinc-',  tion of being the first from this side of i  the water to accomplish the feat These i  gentlemen also while in   Toronto uni-j  versity formed the musical combina-j  tion known as the Students'Quintet, in j  which capacity they  toured Ontario j  during holiday terms.  Mr. Gordon in ;  his lecture   "Across, the  Alps   on a;  Wheel" on Monday evening at So'clock '  give will an account of his experiences, I  musical and cyclical cm  tnis tour.  A j  small admission fee will be charged.      j  THE  100 YARD RAQE.  The long talked of match to run 100  yards betweeu J. A. Long, of Kaslo, and  Jack Campbell, of Nelson, came oil* here  on Friday and resulted iu au easy  victory for the Nelson boy. It will be  remembered that Mr. Long, although he  was the challenging party, wanted to  have the choice of location and other  things which are by the right of the rules  of sport the property of the challenged  one. This lesson was at last drummed  into the Kaslo rainier, but he has another lesson to learn yet, and that is it is  entirely outside the rules of sport when  you are beaten to grab your adversary  and try to make a foul of it. This Long  did. The race was a good one for thc  first GO or 70 yards when it was seen that  Campbell was drawing ahead. When he  had a lead of about two feet Long seized  him by the arm and then attempted to  get him around the neck. In spite'of  this obstruction Campbell pluckily  struggled along and breasted the tape  first, dragging Long with him. He has  thus shown himself not only the best  runner but a good sportsman to boot.  Had he hit out at Long when he was  grabbed, as he might very well have  done, Long" would have undoubtedly  claimed a foul  and might  have  got it.  Mr. J. F. Hume acted as starter and  Messrs. Lemon and Henderson as judges  and the course was from the east end of  the Baker Street bridge to the band  stand.   The stakes were $100.  NEWS   OF   THE WORLD.  BASEBALL.  The baseball match between New  Denver and the local team could hardly  be called a good exhibition of the great  American game. . Chesley. who was in  the box for Nelson,".; and Halley for the  visitors, were both a little wild at times,  and the game throughout was principally  noted for large scores and costly errors.  Up to the (ith inning Nelson had slightly  the best of it, but at the end of the 7th  the score stood tied, 23 to 23, In the 8th  both teams changed pitchers, Brown go-  ing in the box for Nelson and Maurin for  New Denver. In this inning neither  nine scored, but in the 9th the Nelson  boys seemed to have donned their batting clothes aud hit Maurin for 11 runs,  while their opponents could only muster  3, making the score as follows :  Nelson    A   1   2   4   (i   5   2   0   11-34  New Denver     0070   (i   640     3���������20  The teams were composed of the following! players : Nelson���������Chesley, p.;  Smith, c; Stuckey, lb.; Neelands, 2b.;  Farley, 3b.; Brown, r.f.; Phair, c.f., Martin, l.f.; Campbell, 3.8. ��������� New Denver���������  Halley, p.; Caddeu, c; Maurin, lb.;  Cowes, 2b.; Long, 3b.; Davis, c.f.; Richardson, l.f.; Henderson, r.f. and Tucker  s.s. Mr. Thomas Roadley, of Kaslo,  tilled the positiou of umpire to the satisfaction of all concerned.  THE  INTERNATIONAL  RACE.  YACHT  As the time approaches for the annual  race for the American Cup public interest iu the match increases. The cup  itself is worth only S30, yet several hundred thousands are spent in building  yachts to compete for it and millions  change hands on the result. The British  yacht which is to compete this year, the  Valkyrie III., has safely crossed the  Atlantic and is now in New York unshipping her cruising gear-and fitting  her racing tackle. The Defender, which  is~th-"hame"of"the"boat"built in~America  to defend the cup, has raced with the  Vigilant and been beaten, though.cit is  only fair to say the race was a fluke and  no conclusion as to the speed of the  former vessel can be arrived vat from it.  THE   PREMIER   ON   KOOTENAY.  Mr. Turner, M. P. P., Premier of  British Columbia, is now in-Loudon,.and  has been making csonie sensible remarks  about our mining iiidustry. Amongst  other things he said : "What is wanted  in order to attract more attention to the  Province is some actual returns in the  form of dividends from some of our new  mines." Thc same idea occurred to us  and we have takeu care that the news of  the War Eagle's dividends shall be duly  chronicled throughout Great Britain.  Continuing the Premier said: "We want  a good output from "our mines aud to  have it known." Here is a direct way in  which thc papers of Kooteuay can push  ibon and mine owners can. very materially aid the good work by keeping the  papers informed of their outputs.  AT LAST !  FOREIGN.  The following telegram from London  will be read with great interest by our  Kootenay readers: The question of  the development" of mines in - British  Columbia is at present attracting  much attention in financial circles in  the city and it is probable, that several  mining experts will visit in" the district  in autumn. Slf the report made by them  or ttieir investigations shall be favourable, a large influx-of British capital  may be expected. ;  CILUI.CH NOTICES. j  Sunday, August 25th, 1895. j  i Chukcii of England.

A woman who lives across the street  from Emanual Baptist church, San  Francisco, has reported to the police  that she saw Durrant and Blanche  Lamont enter the church at 4.10 on  April 3���������the day of Miss Lamont's  disappearance. The woman's name is  Mrs. Leak and she lives at 124 Eartlett  street. She- is 70 years old and has  been a member of the church for a  number of years. She knew both  Durrant and Miss Lamont intimately,  and therefore cannot be mistaken with  regard to the identity of either. She  says she has remained silent since the  discovery of the bodies of the girls  because she did not-wish to undergo  the annoyance of being a witness in  the case and did not consent to divulge  her identification to the police until  she became convinced it was necessary. This evidence is considered to  be the missing link in (.the chain  against Durrant.  CANADIAN NEWS.  The British North American fleet is  at Quebec.  Much damage has been done, by a  severe windstorm in Winnipeg.  The remains of an antediluvian  monster have been discovered at Oxford  near St. Thomas.

Sixty-seven dollars on the  fantan table was captured, so that the  haul made by the police aggregated  $272.  THE SMELTING BOUNTY ACT.  The following is the smelting bounty  act as passed at the hite session of the  Canadian Parliament at Ottawa:  1. To encourage silver-lead smelt-  ing and the smelting of other 'ores of  silver and gold in Canada the governor  in council may, subject to the following provisions, authorize the payment  of a bounty not exceeding fifty cents  per ton, and not exceeding in all one  hundred and fifty thousand dollars, on  Canadian silver-lead ore and other ores  of silver and gold smelted in Canada between the first day of July, one thousand eight hundred and ninety-five, and  the first day of July, one thousand nine,  hundred.  2. The said bounty shall not for any  one year exceed the sum of thirty thousand dollars; Provided, that the said  sum is unexpended, or anv balance  thereof unexpended may be carried  forward from year to year and may be  paid for any year in addition to the su in  of thirty thousand dollars authorized  as above for such year. - -  3. If in any year the quantity'of ore  smelted is greater than will allow of  the payment, out of the sum available  for that year, of fifty cents per ton,  then the bounty for that year shall be  reduced proportionately.'  4. The said bounty shall not be paid  on any ores smelted in smelting works  .which are not established and in operation before the first day of January,  one thousand eight hundredand ninety-  seven, " _  5.

With regard to the ore shipments, it may  be as well to point out that these have  been made almost entirely .within the  first Bix moDth of this year. Of the total  amount reported only 1,282 tona had  been sent out prior to January 1,1895.  The export is continually on the increase  and its value during the month of June  alone was $135,000.  NEW CAMPS.  This term is not strictly accurate as  though they are only being thoroughly  prospected this year the localities have  been known for some time to contain  mineral. As these are still only prospects  we shall merely mention their names and  general characteristics, commencing with  WHITE   QBOUSE MOUNTAIN,  Which lies   to   the east   and south  of  Pilot Bay.   Here  many claims showing    -  copper and gold ore have been found. The ���������  camp is some 15 miles in from the Lake  and is reached by a trail made by the  enterprise of the owners from a little  townsite known as Davie.   Another route    .-  is up La France Creek, on   which   also  there are claims with good showing.  GOAT BIVSR AND DOCK GREEK  Are still further south and run into the  east bank of the Kootenay River before  it empties into the Lake. Many of the  claims in this camp are something more  than prospects, a good deal of tunnelliog  having been done. Assays of ore runs  high in both copper and gold.

Le monde est lo livro des fenxmes.���������Rosseau.  Away back in the seventies we wera  touring in the midlands with the legitimate, and success had attended us thu.  far. We were booked at T. R. Trever-  ton for six nights, and there opened  -with "Hamlet" on Monday to a full  house.  During the entr'acte I had time to  glance round the theater and take stock  of the audience. Tho pit and circle wera  filled with respectable tradesmen, artisans and others, while a throng of the  .proverbial irrepressible "boys" wera  perched, like the sweet little cherub  that sits up aloft, in that region'known  to the playgoers as "the gods."  .Only one of the boxes was engaged,  and this, No.' 4, on the first tier. It was  occupied by a lady, elegantly dressed,  who, I noticed, scrutinized me through  her pince ncz and occasionally resorted  to a pair of opera glasses.  Whenever I was on the stage she had  her eyes on me, and it was a matter of  comment among the company that it  was only when I- appeared to recite tha  lines set down for me that she appeared  to evince the slightest interest in the  piece.  However, nothing of note occurred.  - The curtain fell at the close of the play,  and the house rapidly emptied.   .  The following morning I was chatting  to Guy Tracey,- the acting manager,10  ;Wheii he remarked:  "You've evidently caught on here. "  '���������    "How's that?" I hazarded.  ' "The lady who occupied box 4 has  been in this morning and booked it for  tlie entire week.''  "She's evidently a devotee to the  Swan."  "So much the better, if she patronizes Thespis  to this tune," observed  'iTracey.  1 The subject then dropped,, but at the  (evening performance the mysterious  [lady was at her post, as attentive a listener as ever.  '. On this occasion I took" the opportunity ..of glancing at her from the stage.  She was decidedly handsome, but thera  Was a weird, vacant look about her eyes  that was almost supernatural. Again  the centered  her attentions, on J*a_____c_____  sir.   Skating tomorrow, sir.   Mind the  step."  I found tbe door of room 7 open and  the lady herself standing by it, waiting  in apparently feverish eagerness. It was  very flattering.  She saluted me with:  "Ah, nion amie, you are a little late,  bnt I forgive you!"  I hesitated at tho door; but, with a  reassuring smile, she bado me enter and  be seatod.  I did so and found a rcoherche supper  prepared, but no other guests visible.  While sho was engaged in giving her  instructions to tho waiter I had an opportunity of scrutinizing my mysterious  hostess. Apparently about 30 years of  ago and of conimaudiug appearance, she  convoyed tho idea that sho 'was not a  lady to bo trifled with. A profusion of  jet black hair was coiled heavily about  her head. Hor noso was slighty retrousse, which, if anything, addod to tha  air of abandon she assumed.  Tho only feature about her, however,  that struck mo as remarkable were her  eyos. There was the same weird, vacant  gazo about thorn that I noticed at tha  theater. Whenever she spoke to me,  thoy became unusually brilliant.  Dismissing the waiter, sho crossed ta  the cabinet and took out a small salver,  the contents of which wero hidden by a  cover.    This sho placed on the table.  "Now for supper," she said. "I have  here," tapping the salver with her fan,  "a positive triumph���������in fact, a 'creation' that would put Soyer to tha  blush." And she laughed merrily.  "May I"���������  "Not yet," she said. "You actors reserve the transformation scene for the  final act. I honor your traditions and do  likewise. "  Supper proceeded gayly. Tho menu  was excellent, and my hostess chatted  away bravely.  "Parlez vous Francais, in'sier?"  With my good friend Spriggins, I  confossed I preferred English.  Bebe looked surprised.  "But, dites moi, you have been in  Paris?"  I admitted the fact.  "Of course," she said, "and you visited Asnieres?"  I confessed I had spent a few days at  that delightful suburb. .=  "Exactly," she retorted significantly,  though why I at the time was at a loss  to divine.  "Don't you think," she asked, with a  smile, "it is rather a bold thing for my  reputation to thus entertain an actor of  Whom I know comparatively nothing?"  "Certainly, and I havo yet to learn  the reason of my visit. "  Bebo laughed, and then, suddenly  changing her tone, she said:  "You shall know all."  I nodded.  "Do you smoke?"   .  "Yes."  Cigarettes were produced, and then,  suddenly stopping, she exclaimed:  . "Stay!   Wo have forgotten the entree."  "Indeed we have!" And I placed my  cigarette on tho table.  Bebe touched the salver and glanced  round apprehensively.   Then she said:,  "Let me tell you a story first. Will  you listen?"  "Indeed I shall.be delighted."  She drew her chair round till she was  directly vis-a-vis; then, brushing back  her hair and disclosing her firmly  ehaped contour, she fixed her eyes on  me and said:  "Before I commence my narrative I  mnst beg of yon to reply to one or two  questions."  "With pleasure. "  "First, when were you in Paris?"  "Let me see.   About 1868. "  "Eighteen hundred and sixty-eight?  Are you sure?"  "Positive."  Bebe seemed lost in thought for a moment. and_then-Continued:  "~a_i'd''igF6r~ed~the~'e_forts of my confreres.  Again the badinage in the greenroom  'Waxed fast and furious.  , As -I.-left tho theater that night I  thought I perceived our fair patroness on  -the opposite side of the road, but dismissed the idea as preposterous.  Thursday was fixed for my benefit,..  -and, as before, the lady was to bo seen  in box 4."     .  "This is getting interesting," I  .thought. ' 'I wonder who the Mephis-  tophelos she is?"   - -        -.  The call boy cut short further meditations, and in a few moments I was on  - the stage.'  Throughout tho evoning sho watched  me closoly and more than once applauded vigorously. At tlio end of tho play I  was "called," and sho then hurled a  large bouquet at me.  The affair was growing interesting. I  acknowledged , tho compliment aud retired;   I am bound  to confess that beyond its small intrinsic val no the bouquet possessed   but few charms for mo,  and meeting tho 1 -.dy who played Ophelia I handed her tho posy, remarking:  "Render to Caesar."  She took tho floral offering, and in  doing so dropped a billet doux from between the buds to the stage. "'  " "Fie!'.' exclaimed little Miss Chester.  "Is it thus you valuo your souvenirs?"  I laughed, picked "up the note and retired.   My  toilet  finished, I was just  leaving the dressing room when it occurred to me the note was still unread.  To unfold itcWas tho work of a second.

This was embarrassing, but I resolved  to carry it into effect, despite the scandal likely tb arise from the circumstances.  Rushing home to my room, I hastily  changed my coat for- the conventional  abomination of evening dress. This  done, I made my way to the Victoria,  arriving as the cathedral clock was  Etriking 12.

Some time ago we pointed out, as an  evidence of the mineral resources of  If Kootenay, that if it did not pay to dig  out silver our miners had only to shift  themselves a mile or two and set to  work to dig out gold. A third string  to our bow is now cropping up. Indications point to copper as a very  important item of our wealth.  Recently there has been a considerable excitement in the markets of  London and New York over the metal  which has .reached a price it has not  previously attained since the breaking  up of the great French syndicate nearly  ten years ago. In those days comparatively little copper from over the sea  was used in Europe and the syndicate  found little difficulty iu obtaining control' of the supply. The high price,  however, encouraged production, until  the quantities offered became too large  for the pool, which suddenly collapsed.  An immense accumulation of copper-  was left, which being suddenly thrown  on the market had.the usual effect.  That stock, however, is now exhausted and a new and rapidly increasing  demand has arisen in the widespread  adoption of electricity as a motor force.  Not only is the use of "captive lightning" extending with marvellous  rapidity, equalling almost its own in*  credible speed, but it is found that the  larger the wires or cables are that are  employed for its transmission, the  greater the economy in its working.  The cable most used to-day weighs  19,800 pounds tothe mile, that is nearly  10 tons.  At present. America can consume all  the copper she produces. Theie is little.  or no export to Europe; the price in  New Yoik being in round figures $30  per ton higher than it is in England.  The question "of whether the present  pricp of copper is legitimate or speculative will be settled early next month,  when the fall trade in copper will  begin. " ���������-   will also be erected at Pilot Bay as  soon as there is enough ore offering to  warrant it. The proprietors have not  yet sufficient confidence in the vein of  copper discovered .in the Blue Bell to  erect a special plant for its reduction.  It is to be hoped that the Hall Mines  will treat the owners of other copper  mines with sufficient liberality to  justify them in further developing  their properties. We believe that it is  their intention to encourage the  smaller folk as much as possible. It  would appear to be to their own interest to do so. With all the copper  properties that are known to exist ou  Kootenay Lake, the smelter which first  gets the business of treating their ores  may be building1 the foundation of a  very large trade in the future.  would Jhave thought him perfectly  familiar, brags about being admitted  to the Speaker's private apartments,  which shows that the honor was misplaced, and is astonished to find that  Mr. Balfour is a gentleman ; all of  which goes to show. that Mr. Crisp  himself is a bit of a tuft hunter and a  very ignorant person to boot.

Nelson, B. C, Aug. 3. 1890.     (185.1", 8, -5.)  THE  MINING  BUREAU.  The proposed Mining Bureau at  Victoria apparently fails to please the  mining men of Kootenay. Moreover  they appear to take absolutely no interest whatever in it instead of regarding it as a means to further their  business prospects. There are two  reasons for this, the first being that  it is to be established at Victoria and  the other is born of that inward dis-  t rust that attaches itself to any man  who pi ot'esses a knowledge of scientific geoiogy .or who in other words is  known as a mining expert. An office  several hundred miles away presided  over by an expert can never do any.  one any good. That is the gist of it  summed up.  It is scarcely necessary to point out  I he shallowness-of these reasons, but  they exist nevertheless and are deeply  rooted, and it is doubtful whether the  Government will be able to collect the  statistics necessary for'the proper working of a bureau unless it employs men  in the different camps to gather them  on the spot.  There is also a vaguej feeling that  the Bureau may be used as an advertising medium by people with influence  and whose interests" do not lie in  Kootenay. The fact that there is not  two bits worth of Kootenay mining  property held in Victoria lends  strength to the opinion.  An independent office, run by a  strong, clear headed business man, it  does not matter much whether he is a  mining expert ' or not, would do a  world of good to all the mining interests of the Province. But will it. be  done?  A room full of dusty specimens,  which no one looks at, presided over  by a man who knows nothing except  the long names' of different kinds of  rock, will do little good. Carefully  collected statistics properly arranged  aud forcibly bringing the wealth of  the country to the.public eye at a  glance is what is wanted.  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  KOOTENA VS* COPPER.  In anothet article we have drawn  attention to the present position of  copper in the markets of the world,  and have indicated the same as a  material factor in Kootenay'.? prosperity. During the recent visits to Nelson  "of thebig'sriieltirig'men-theydidnot-  attempt to conceal that what they  were after was copper. They were no  doubt aware then of what everybody  knows now. In fact the indications  even then were very plainly shown.  If we leave out the Slocan, it is  hardly too much to say that the chief  mines of Kootenay are copper mines.  The Silver King, ..the War Eagle, the  Le Roi aie all copper mines.  Most of the other claims at Trail Creek  have copper ore : it is the distinctive  feature of the camp. The claims on  Goat River, White Grouse Mountain  and Crawford Creek point to the existence of a vast copper belt lying to the  east of Kootenay Lake and River and  parallel to them, while in the Blue  Bell mine itself a ledge of copper ore  was discovered early in this year,  which, so far as it has been uncovered,  'seems to be of considerable proportions.  Crawford Creek may be called a new  find, many men are in there and some  valuable specimens have.been brought  out, but it is too early as yet to figure  on the lasting nature of its ledges. On  White Grouse Mountain, more work  has been done and the owners of the  claims there,are showing their belief in  their property by. constructing a trail  in from the Lake, which makes their  mines accessible from the townsite of  "Qavie in one day. On Goat River and  . Duck Creek' considerable more work  has been done. These mines are more  easily accessible and it is not improbable that shipments will be made from  them this winter.  On Toad Mountain itself copper ore  is!found in other places thau or. the  property of the Hall Mines. Notably on  the Dandy and other adjoining claims,  Coming nearer home, the Princess, on  the wagon load within sight of Nelson.  ' assays high in copper. It has recently  been bonded, and we understand that  the.bond will be taken up.  The building of a smelter by the  Hall Mines will encourage the development of all copper properties, because  it is to be a stack for treating copper  ores.   We believe that a copper stack   .Mr._Julius_.S._Mor.ton.-=Secretar-y-of-  Agriculture at Washington, is ah anti-  silver man. Many of the clerks in his  department do riot think the same way  as their chief, and he, has adopted a  somewhat forcible method of showing  the fallacy of their creed, He pays  them (heir salaries in silver: At the  end of every month each*man finds his  pay neatlycdone up in a sack, which  he'has to lug away with him. Some  of the higher officials have quite a load  to cany. Though somewhat forcible  the method scarcely seems to be  logical.  The London Mining Journal quotes  a large part of Clarence King'saccount  of the Kootenay country. Unfortunately it has takeu it from our columns  iii which it was necessarily condensed,  but the part quoted contained the gist  of the article, and it forms an important feature in the leading milling  paper. In an editorial upon the  progress of mining here, the, same  paper says: "The most satisfactory  feature about the recent increase (in  mining development) is that it rests  upon the solid basis of quartz mining."

I  The announcement that Lord "Wol-  seley will be made Commander-in-  Chief of the British army is a little  surprising. It is probably rather the  last act of the dead and gone Liberals  1 nan the first of the Conservatives.  Lord Wolseley has always been i\ pet  of Mr. Gladstone's and has had charge  of (.he various wars which have been  the result of that grand old fraud's  attempt to. rule the British Empire.  The appointment is probably a good  one. but there is no doubt that both  Tommy Atkins and the nation generally would rather see a member of the  Royal family in the position. Lord  Wolseley is noted for his administrative capacities.  The rebellion in Cuba has assumed  very serious proportions.- It is said  that an army of 100,000 men will have  to be sent from Spain to subdue, it.  The Cubans are extremely angry with  the United States alleging that the  rebels are aided and permitted to obtain arms and ammunition under cover  of the Stars and Stripes. There are no  doubt dishonest American shipowners  in the Gulf of Mexico who are only too  willing to go into such a lucrative  business as this and if it would help  them in their nefarious practice would  carry it on under the emblem of  Christendom itself. That part of the  world has long been known as a resort  for pirates of all sorts.  To take a few casual "remarks made  by a person and-telegraph them-all  over the w.orld often makes that person look foolish. This is what has  happened to Mr. Crisp, late Speaker of  the United States Congress. This  gentleman attended the opening of the  British Parliament and then was foolish enough to open his mouth in tlie  presence of a press man. The words  that dropped out have been printed in  nearly every paper on this continent.

C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 1895.  Attacked by ft Rhinoceros.  The author of "Discovery of Lakes  Rudolf and Stefanie" had shot a zebra,  and his men .vero making ready to cut it  op, "when two rhinoceroses appeared ia  the distance. Apparently the firing of.  the gun had disturbed their nap and  tnade them thoroughly angry.  Though moro than 400 paces off, the  rhinoceroses swerved aside* when they  saw us and then dashed upon us with  the speed of race horses. As usual, my  black companions took to their heels,  making for a solitary tree some distance  Off. It was hopeless for me to think of  reaching it, and there was not so much  as a blade of straw for cover anywhere.  And behind the dead zebra, which would  . b_ve been bettor than nothing, throe of  my men were already crouching.  Thero was nothing for it but to bravo  the situation out, so I knelt on ono knee,  the better to take aim, and with niy  elephant gun in hand waited to fire till  I oonld hopo to kill. It seemod a long  time beforo I could covor the shoulder  Of either of the hugo beasts, aud I know  any other shot would bo useless. Tho  result was that I did not pull the trigger till one of tho animals was only  some eight or ton pacos oil.  It staggered and fell, but the next  moment was on its feet again. It was  not killed, but its ardor was cooled, for  it turned away, followed by its companion. Twice it seemed about to fall, and  I did not think a second shot would be  necessary, but it got away with undiminished speed, and though we followed  it for some distanco we lost it.  IHMMi.
