The members of the  compauy are A. R. Barrow, George W.  Richardson aud George A. Bigelow. The  latter in conversation with a Minei*  representative stated that the necessary  machinery had already beeu secured and  the work of construction would commence  as soon as. the site ' had been secured.

Action   was   IIvm-iI   l>>   Jailxe   Fil-tluhbs  Who OlHUiltwed it with Some Ail vice  on I lie Sii-Jeet���������4'nuse uf the  -  Trouble.   -  On Saturday last, Mr. George Bigelow  as a member of the Nelson tire department swore out a complaint against  Messrs." Harry and Charles Donogli  charging them with unlawfully and  feloniously opening aud tampering with  a fire hydrant on Vernon street, an  offense for which the statutes provide a  fine of $25.  It appears that the defendants on Friday last desired to flood the skating rink  they are constructing and asked Mr.  Sansom, agent for the Nelson Water  company if they could use water for that  purpose. He gave the"required permission and one of the defendants then went  to Mr. J. Malone, foremnu of the fire  department and asked for the loan of  some hose. The latter gave him fifty  feet of it and although he understood  what it was to be used for, he made no  objection, ns he considered Mr. Sansom  had full authority in the matter.  The caso was heard before Judge Fitzstubbs last' Tuesday and was dismissed,  the court holding that the defendants  had not shown any willful intent to  violate the law. It had beeu shown by  the testimony that the fire hydrants were  the property of the Nelson fire department and consequently wholly under  their control. In future, permission to  use them would have to be obtained from  the foreman ot the fire department.  CRAWFORD.0RE6K MINES. "  -nine I'l ne Slmwlnxs Uatle In tliut IMtlrlrt  ���������    - This ������t*:ir.  Mr. A. W. Crittendeu of Crawford  Creek, one of the owue's of the Monte  Carlo and the' California, was in town  last Thursday. Ho says that they will  probably sell or stock the claims before  next spring. Work on them has beeu  stopped for the winter. On the Monte  Carlo a 100 foot tunnel has been run  since July .to tap the vein at a depth of  150 feet and on the California, a 25 foot  tunnel lias been run. The smelter returns of the two mines show 241 ounces in  silver, 46 per cent, lead aud 6 per cent,  copper. Five tons are now at the Kaslo  sampling works. The ore is clear gray  copper.������������������-������������������ ��������� ������������������<   T. J. Proctor's claims, the Republican  Group, under bond to the Loudon and  British Columbia Gold Fields, has had  about 82,000 worth of work dune on  them aud 85,000 more will be spent under '.he bond. A wagon road is to be  built and ten men will-work most ot the  .vinter. . Mr. Crittenden thinks the group  one of the best concentrating properties  in th*>. country.  The extensions of Mr. Proctor's claim,,  the Frankfort and the Nelsou have been  sold by A. W. Crittenden to the London  and British Columbia Gold* Fields for  82,000 cash. They are undeveloped prospects and show gray copper  and galena.  The Long property, belonging to  Messrs. Robalaird, Matthews and McLaren, nt the head of Crawford creek,  near Rose's pass shows a seven foot ledge  of solid galena ore and the quartz showing can be traced the entire length ot the  claim. A tunnel of 50 feet has been inn  butwork-has-now-closed-dowu-for-tho  winter. Assays average 75 ounces in  silver; 70.per cent lead; 5 to 10 per cent  in copper- and Borne gold.  , The Hidden Secret has been worked  all the summer by six meu and a 50 or 60  foot tunnel driven to crosscut the ledge  which shows two feet. Fivo or six tons  have" been shipped and work litis now  closed down for the winter.' Assays show  116 ounces in silver, 2 ounces iu gold, "20  per cent lead aud 4 to 5 per cent in" copper.  ���������> Good finds have been made in Crawford creek district - this fall, George  Matthews locating a .'ledge over the  divide on St. Mary's slope that runs 4G()  ounces in silver. There is lots of good  ground to prospect yet but money is ic-  quired to develop the mines there. The  formation is lime and shale.  The Fort Steele trail which runs to  Crawford and Pilot Bays is lapped by the  trail from Mw, California, a fact not generally known.

The Rossland Miner made its first  appearance last Tuesday as a four page  daily newspaper.  Kaslo has uow a chartered bank and  has let the contract for lighting the city  by. electricity. Surely they should be  congratulated upon their progress.  Seattle papers are making a great  noise about a fierce cougar found on the  State University campus. The chances  are that the professors of the college  possess more terror for the average student than a lonely cougar wandering  through the grounds.  The Manitoba papers assert that a  knighthood is among the possibilltes of  the New Year for Mr. Laurier, he having  promised to accept the honor ou tlie  advice of Sir Oliver Mowat, the advice  beiug in line with his personal inclinations.   He expects to go to England to  receive  bauds.  the honor from   Her Majesty's  Arise Sir Wilfred Laurier.  Iu on interview with a Victoria Times  reporter Hon. Mr. Tarte expressed.himself as thinking the basis on which the  .Manitoba school question-- was settled.  would surely improve the .audition of  the Roman Catholics which in his opinion is a very critical one. He avows  that it would-be a national crime almost  to allow more schools to close their doors  than the 51 which have alreaiy done so.  D. Carrol of Vancouver, one of the  chief promoters of the Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway and Navigation Co.", states that the company proposes to lay a matured financial proposal  before .the Dominion and Provincial,  autliof ities- f _Ftlie"bui ldiugo f!~aTai Iroad"  from that point' to the Columbia River.  He is very sanguine of success and it is  to be hoped that he will meet with no  disappointment. _ -   -  This week Hons. L H. Davies, Minister: of Marines and- Fisheries and G.  Blair- Minister'.* Railways aud Canals,  are in Vancouver where they have been  entertained with banquets and public addresses. Their visit means much for the  prosperity of British Columbia as it is expected that they .will materially aid in tbe  recognition of this country at the hands  of the Federal government. These gentlemen will visit the Kooteuay., district  within a very short time and will carefully inquire into its wants and requirements.  it has incorporated but a private corporation would find it a paying investment.  The merchants and householders of this  towu have paid in advanced insurance  premiums, sufficient to establish three or  four such systems. If some enterprising  firm would' take the matter in hand it  would be only a short time until it' controlled nearly or all the water business.  It has been conservatively estimated that  the investment would pay a large iuterest  and provide a sinking fund thnt would  equal the investment in the period of  seven years. It seems strange that the  present water company does not seek Anderson creek as the source of supply aud  by so doing effectually shut out all possible competition. Nelsou is making  rapid pi ogress in point of wealth and  population aud the water question and  also the sewer question are daily becoming ot greater importance.  ORE SAMPLING WORKS.  J. J. Crowley, supervising special  agent of tho U. S. Treasury in his annual  report opposes tbe erection and equipment of buildings for sampling works at  places where lead bearing ores aie imported. He says that the execution of  the law would be attended with many  difficulties and involves the expenditure  of a very large sum of money. In lieu,  he suggests that ores go forward from  the port of entry under warehouse or  transportation bond to properly equipped  smelting establishments and then competent officers of the government can  ascertain the dutiable quantity of lead  contained therein.  This seems to be the simplest solution  of the question and it seems that the  same" results, equitable alike to both the  government and the importer, would be  obtained. It is plain that the establishment of separate sampling works would  cause delays and extra expense and there  seems to be no occasion for it. If Mr.  ���������"���������"���������owley's suggestions are to be followed  a change in the tariff act of 1894 will be  necessary;  GAZETTE NOTICES.  PHO.FE__lO-.-_.  ���������._KD_.  L.  R.

The Donogh brothers, as they.supposed,  acted in good faith and thought they Lad  all the authority that was necessary.!
