Canada's natal day, the 1st of July,  was celebrated with much enthusiasm at Silverton. The heavy rain  of the night before cooled the atmosphere for Monday, assisted by heavy  banks of clouds. The town was in  gala.attire, all the business houses  being profusely ' decorated. The  main street had been cleared off, and  lined with, trees, heightening the  romantic appearance of the Four Mile  town. New Denver was depended  on to send the crowd, and it did so.  Each trip of the W. Hunter was so  well patronized, that scarce a baker's  dozen were left in tow.n. A royal  salute of 21 guns was fired upon the  arrival of the Hunter with the first  being   present.     The  propitious,   and every-  stylc.    The  good  recently.

Seven innings were played, resulting iu a score of 15 to S in favor of  the home team. Inability to find the  puzzling curves of their opponent's  pitcher, one or two costly errors, and  a slight attack of razzle-dazzle are  the reasons advanced by the New  Denver boys for their defeat. In the  other'sports New Denver fared well,  carrying off the first prizes in the  four events contested. , George Long  captured the shooting match, A.'  Sproat the higli jump, while T.  Henderson had a snap in the 100 yard  dash and 440 yards run. Only two  firsts were allowable,.otherwise'more  ���honors might have been taken. In  the evening a ball took place in the  new school house. This was particular^ enjoyable to the visitors.  Taken all together, the celebration  was a uronounced success.

For the past month tlie weather  has been agreeable, and the crops  are showing great improvement.  J. Old has been supplying the  river steamers with fresh vegetables.  Besides this he will have a good  surplus to ship.  Prospectors would doubtless strike!  paying ore in the Gold mountains,  surrounding the valley.

Last week's Gazette contained the  notice of the formation of the Columbia & Rossland Tramway Co., F. B.  Peraberton, of Victoria," and R. G.  Ta.tlow of Vancouver, being the chief  pushers. The Company was organized for the purpose of building,  equipping and operating a tramway,  and constructing, equipping and  operating a telephone and telegraph  line in connection therewith, between  some point of tlie Columbia river, at  or near the mouth of Trail creek, by  a practicable route along' or in the  vicinity of the valley of said creek to  some convenient point at or* near the  Rossland Mining Camp, with power  to construct branches to connect with  any mines in the vicinity of the proposed tramway.  Ore shipments from Trail creek  camps are on the increase.  Six teams commenced Monday to  haul ore from thc Slocan Star.  The Silver King sent out 34 tons of  ore last week to Newark, N. J.. '  A. Beamer has purchased the Eldorado mine, Trail, for ��22,000.  The Ruth shipped 28 tons, two of  which were carbonates, in June.  Ben Finnell has made an elegant  copper strike,five miles north of Rossland.  The Pilot Bay smelter is keeping  up its shipments of bullion, of 20 tons  daily.  An influx of prospectors- has taken  place to the divide between Four  Mile and Cody creeks.  Four men are working,on thc Starlight, a claim on Toad mountain,  bonded by A. E. Humphreys.  Two more tunnels are to be run on  the Ruth. The ledge" on this property can be traced for 1,500 feet up tlie  hill. -..,-.

Nineteen claims at least are located  on one lead in  running   right  creek divide.,  the  Ten Mile district,  over    the   Springer  Some extra rich ore is being struck  on several of the properties in the  Lardeau,' notably on the Badshot and  Sable Creek group.        ��� ���-.:  A: miner named: Boulet had a rock  fall on his head in the shaft of the  North Star, Trail creekj last week,  was not nurt much.  jThe Government will erect a lockup and record office at Rossland.  A six-foot-vein of f CO ore has been  struck'on the Le Roi, Trail, only a  few hundred '. feet from the hotel.  Supt. Bent made the discovery right  on the surface. : y  Six nieii were placed at work Friday on the; L Pi, one of; the big gold  propositions on Eight Mile. More will  be added as , development proceeds  and depth is gained.  Saturday week two men, named  Johnson and Luther, accidentally exploded an old charge in the No. 1  mine, Ainsworth. The former had a  hand blown off, while the latter received severe:bodily, injuries.' ...  Charters have been granted by the  Dominion Governmen-" to, the Red  Mountain and the Trail Creek &,Columbia railways. Both roads will tormina te in the neigh borhood of Rossland and will compete for the".ore  trade.  Capt. Moore and party examined  the Currie Saturday and were surprised at the good showing of mineral.  Provided tlie ore were gotten out to  the lake cheaply, a favorable ra e  would.be. offered by the concentrator  people for handling it at New Duluth  i via Rosebery. Page  THE LEDGE.

E. Harrison is doing assessment  work oh the Lucretia and contact  veins, in which lie is , largely inter-  vested.  Hon. J. D.Young is pounding away  on the Shoo Fly claim, near the summit, in which several Wallace parties  are also interested.  WALLACE.  The hospital is quiet this week, ten  patients only being in the wares.  Adolph Young and Miss Hattie  Johnson, both of this citv, were mar-  riod last week by Father Keyzer.  Pat O'Lachlin has sold his restaur  ant at Gem  to Mrs. Cook,  and has  gone to Montana to look for a new location.  The condition of Mr. Casey, who  has been suffering in the hospital for  the past three weeks with pneumonia  remains about the same.  Messrs Slayter & Evans, of Mendi-  mont  are   having  a  new  steamer  built, their old. boat, the None Such,  having proved too slow for their business. The new boat will go into commission shortly.  Engineer Hawkins, who was killed  in the Northern Pacific wreck, last  week, at Rivulet, was a resident of  Missoula, and leaves a wife and live  children. The fireman was not badly hurt and will soon be ready for  duty again.  Ex-Governor Hanser, A. J. Selig-  man and A. M. Holter, members of  the Helena-Frisco Mining Company,  were in the city Wednesday night  and went to Gem next day. The  nature of their visit is not known and  all sorts of rumors are flying about.  D. S. Murray, general manager, of  Salt Lake City, and H. Sommers, the  superintendent of the Montana division, were in Wallace this week, on  business in connection with the Rocky  Mountain Telephone company. They  are surveying a route by which to  extend their line from Montana to  this city, and the placing in of metallic circuits. They expect to begin  work next week. At the beginning  of the work they will employ about a  dozen men, but as they progress the  staff will be increased.  Charles Dearwater, employed at  the Custer mine, fell down an ore  chute, a distance of 300 feet, about 5  o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and was  instantly killed. Dearwater, with  half a dozen other men who are  leasing on the Custer, were coming  off from blasting, when one of the  men heard him remark that he was  without a light and in a bad spot. A  step or two further forward and he  was heard to utter a scream, and a  second later his body was heard  plunging down the chute. In order  to recover the body, it was necessary  to let a man down the chute. The,  body was recovered about midnight.  It was badly mutilated about the  head.. Dearwater had resided in the  Coeur d'Alenes for a number of years  and was well and favorably known.  The last two years he lived at Gem,  and prior to that at Mullan. His relatives live in California.  Britannia Rules  th�� Waves.  The American merchant flag has  been swept from the seas by the  British lion. During the year 1894  not a bushel of grain was carried  across the Atlantic in a steam or sailing vessel under the United States  flag. Of the millions of bushels of  cereals grown in the United States,  but 600 bushels of peas were exported  last year under the American flag,  and even that consignment was carried in an English built steamer  which had been granted an American  register���the liner New York. That  particular shipment of 600 bushels  comprised the small surplus which  could not be stowed away in the  already overstocked hold of a British  craft. The American ship took tfye  leavings.  There were shipped, from New  York during 1894, 33,384,952 bushels  of American grain and cereals, which  went to feed Europe's hungry millions.  The lion's share of the colossal quan.  tity was carried in British vessels,  which made 494 trips across the  Atlantic, carrying 21,007,461 bushels.  The remainder of the export trade  was divided between Belgian, German, Dutch. French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian  and Spanish vessels  Vessels displaying the British flag  carried more than two-thirds of the  entire exportation���10,000,000 more  bushels than all the o:. her vessels of  the world combined. Uncle Sam's  flag was not seen on a single grain  carrier.  Is issued at New Denver, B. C, on Thursday.  Wet weather, snow slides, hard times, or the  sheriff never  hinders its   publication.

An Old Timer's Experience in Searching  for the Yellow Metal.  Big Bend is a name. familiar to all  old timers and  indeed  to everyone  who takes any interest in the history  of mining'in this country, says an old  timer in the Province.    Above Col-  ville the bars of the main Columbia  had   been   extensively    mined for  years before Big  Bend created any  excitement, but when the rush set in  it  was a   repetition   of  the scenes  which so many of us had witnessed  on the Fraser in 1S58 ; the Columbia  was virtually   studded with every  class of craft from the frail canoe to  the heavily  laden scow.    I was one  of a score of   " fifty-eighters " operating on French Creek (so-called from  the fact that it was discovered by a  Frenchman) and joined in the eye-  opener���$18 from ten pans of dirt.  The yield of this creek for the season  to which I allude (1865) was I believe  $35,000, while the McCulloch, Carnes  and other creeks totalled oyer ��3,000  each.     What amount   of gold was  actually taken out  it would be difficult to say as the  export, tax then in  force was a piece of legislation the  miners had no. scruples in, evading  whenever possible.'  We worked under great difficulties  in Big Bend, chief among which was  an  insufficiency   of, food.     Manual  labour, mental anxiety and low dietary  were our   constant companions  and a very uncongenial lot they are:  It is surprising what an appetising  effect an almosc depleted larder has  upon a man.    The  necessaries of life  are fortunately few.     I can add my  testimony to that of the philosopher  who made,this practical discovery.  For weeks together I have lived on  flour nor did I increase in weight as  the flour  diminished   in   bulk:   we  were both on the  decline.    When I  state that I   was   scarcely able to  carry my gold out of the Big Bend,  you must not infer that I had a big  pile of wealth.    I had however what  enabled ihe to  winter comfortably in  Colvilie and lay in a good stock for a  fresh start as   soon . < as the spring  opened.  We all expected a great influx Of  miners as soon as t^e season opened  but none of Us dreamt that it would  be anything so liberal as it proved to  be. By way of preparation the  Government was opening a trail from  Xamloops via Shuswap Lake, while  the Hudson's Bay Co. had the steamer Martin under way to trade on the  lake to Seymour as soon as the ice  broke up. Neither the Government  nor the Hudson's Bay people however  appear to have anticipated' opposition  as freight carriers. They nevertheless had it in the person of M Tel lias,  better known as Thousand-Dog-Joe,  who with a seven dog team and a  toboggan did a brisk business earn -  ing supplies to the  Big Bend mines  Headquarters of the  Nakusp & Slocan Railway.

O  before the opening of navigation.  I have said a seven dog -team, but  there was practically no limit to the  number or breed of dogs used by M.  Teliias���his    kennels   were always  equal to his  trade.    One fierce looking brute���half wolf���was fairly well  harnessed at the lead, but the rest of  the poor canines were roped together  in the most unscientific fashion.    Yet  the immense loads these poor dogs  drew over the ice would scarcely be  credited.    Taking I suppose the cue  from Teliias, scores of miners���and  there were hundreds of them at this  time at Seymour���improvised hand-  sleds and drew , their stores over the  frozen waters.  With the opening of navigation  everything began to look lively.  The steamer Martin was making  semi weekly trips on Shuswap Lake  to Seymour, passenger rates beirg  |10 a head and freight $20 a ton.  This price was considered too steep  even by miners; as a result several  boats were brought into requisition  and competition reduced prices as  1 ow as |2.50 for passage and $15 per  ton for freight. The Portland route  however was /the more popular one,  owing in no small degree to the  disaster to tlie ill fated steamer  Labouchere, which caused a rise in  the fares from San Francisco to  Victoria. I was one of about ninety  passengers carried by tlie steamer  Forty-nine from Colvilie to-Death's  Rapids, arriving at our journey's end  towards the latter end of April,  1866.  The. trip was a perilous one, as we  were in constant danger of being  broken into b/y the large sheets of  ice floating around.      We had ten  {Continued on sixth page.{)  III  tSo  NAKUSP.  B.

The separate school question still  bothers the people of Manitoba. We  think it will do so until the Dominion  Government, shuts religion entirely  out of politics, and makes our public  school system strictly non-sectarian.  We do not see why any religious  sect should be allowed to have separate schools. If the Roman Catholics  have them, why not give them to  the Baptists," "Methodists, Presbyterians, Jews, Unitarians, Salvation  Array, and the many other creeds  that are taught in this priest-ridden  Canada ol ours.  One creed has as much right as  any other, and if the Roman Catholics  are allowed any privileges, all other  denominations should have the same  show. Let the fight go on, and when  priest and parson run the entire  country", the brimstone basement in  our future existence will have no  terrors for Canadians.  Dominion Day was widely celebrated in Canada. We would have  celebrated it with more vigor and  enthusiasm if it was a national holiday, instead of only a commemoration of the confederation of a string of  English colonies.  Some of the good people of Kaslo  aro anxious to do away with that,  city's greatest but wicked attraction.  If that should occur, what would  become of the many ancient and  portly Trilbys, who now grow fat  upon two-bit beer, so generously  bought-- for them by the lovers,of wild,  hilarious,  and expensive   pleasure ?  Today is the Fourth of July, and  many of the people in Kootenay wish  they were under the Starry Banner  for a few hours. The day is being  more or less observed throughout the  district. It commemorates a victory  over the British nation; but then,  everything goes in British Columbia,  except the extension of the Arrow  lake railroad.  Vancouver is getting to be very  much like Toronto. The Sunday  law is in full force, and upon that  day everything is closed up except  the barber shops and churches.  These are still allowed to do business.  The street cars are also allowed to  pursue the even tenor of their way.  The saloons observe the law strictly  the way they do in the east. YoU  have to learn the combination, step  through the back door, and if you  have mohej7 the lush is yours.  Our bull-dog has grown very fat  lately, arid we have taken  him to  Spokane to train him   for the fall  campaigni   This dog  has a history.  We fed him for a long time bit book  agents, but their gall made him ill  and we changed  his diet to tdwnsite  boomers. ' He fattened for a while on  them,   but becoming   troubled with  wind colic, we switched again, and  gave thenl nothing but delinquent  subscribei s for nearly a year.    Now  we" are   fitting   him   with   a  new  set of teeth and giving him nerve  cordials. When he is in proper condition we will trv and collect a bill  from the I. C. *& D. Co. If we don't  succeed the bull-dog's days are numbered.  -  It would seem,  judging from the  reports of   nearly   every   hanging  match in Canada,   that the scaffold  was a stepping   stone to Paradise.  Nearly every  individual who ends  his earthly career at the end of a  rope, has a spiritual  adviser up to  the last minute and dies repentant,  expecting to push   clouds  with the  white-winged  angels,. while,   in all  probability, his victim, having to die  with his boots  on and in  too big a  hurry to turn over a new leaf, has to  eternally shovel ccal with the black  demons, in a clime where ice is not  in the formation, and the hot weather  never pinches out. It strikes us that  the system should be revised, but we  see no way of changing it at present.  Do you, gentle and cultured reader?  Canada is to have a new political,  party. Like its legion of predecessors, the claim is made that the two  old parties will be utterly broken up.  This new organization was formed  in Toronto, and is called the Canadian  National Association. The platform  of the Association has some interest  to this section* as it purposes to; deal  with mining questions. Some of the  objects of the new party are the  fostering of a national sentiment,  working for the removal of the.prer  sent system of dual languages, for  the abolition of separate schools, so  that there will be but one official language and one system of schools for  Canada, and to disseminate information concerning Canada's mineral,  agricultural, marine and lumbering  industries. Only Canadians by birth  are allowed to join the new organization. "Canada for Canadians," will  be its motto.  .stall, S*  ROSSLAND, B. C.  Capt. Vanderburg, Master.  Tims   Ta.Tol-3.

Dalles des Morts was the head, of  navigation and at Kirbyville a lumber mill was ran by Komano, who  had no difficulty in securing a mar-  ket for all the stuff he could turnout  at $125 per thousand feet. All supplies were dragged in boats through  what was well named Death's Bapids,  as treacherous a piece of water as can  well be imagined. Every season  there were numerous fatalities here���  during that with which we are dealing, a boat containing twenty-three  persons was swept over and but five  of tlie whole outfit were saved.  My second season's work on Big  Bend did not at all fulfill my expectations, in fact I was sadly disappointed. The general impression was  that the diggings were shallow and  could be worked cheap, but we soon  discovered that this was not the case  when-the lead had been tapped.  The bed rock was so deep, the boulders so large in the channel that we  nearly all became disheartened and  a general exodus ensued. Of those  who cleared out many had not as  much as paid their way and had to  run their fare with the genial captain  of the steamer Forty-nine. They  naturally gave the place a bad  name.  However, despite the bad name,  there was good money taken out of  the Big.Bend that season���not less  than $250,000. French creek was  perhaps the I'ichest of the lot: next in  order was McCulloch Creek, where  bed rock was found in some places at  six feet. About a dozen companies  were here at work* the;";, most enterprising of the lot being the Yale Co.  They went down about fifty feet;  pumping with the aid of a wheel, and  at this depth struck bed rock. Next  they drifted towards the deep ground  sinking three blind shafts, from the  last of which they again drifted and  were in three sets of timbers when  they were driven out by; waiter.  The fate of this company had a very  depressing effect on all miners then  in the district, who nevertheless were  almost unanimous in declaring  "There's lots of gold here if we could  only get at it."  Oh that "if "' If I had only stuck  to some of the good things which  came in my way and if I had not  joined in every gold excitement I  would be well fixed to-day. In all  my experience I believe I never saw  a more deadbroke crowd of men  than that which left the. Big Bend in  the winter of 1S66| Many of the  poor fellows came in badly prepared  for the hardships they had to encounter, expecting no doubt to get ready  employment and to make plenty of  money. Even some of us who had  been .-well provisioned at times felt  keenly the pinch of hunger. How  ever willing we might have been to  share with those less fortunate, the  first law of nature, self preservation,  asserted itself, and I must confess  that more than once during that  never-to-be-forgotten winter did 1 say  "No" when asked by a poor hungry  feilow^being for a mouthful "for God's  sake."  There were deaths from absolute  starvation I have no doubt. Entire  camps were reduced to starvation  allowance at times. On one occasion  the fortunate arrival of the steamer  Forty-nine with provisions saved us  and yet we had plenty of gold. A  hungry man with a couple of thousand dollars' worth of gold unable to  appease his hunger is the worst type  of destitution that I know of. Many  a time did I envy the poor dogs that  did service for Tellias, for thev were  at least well fed. Needless "to say I  did not again return to Big Bend,  although I was by no means the  mest unlucky of those who endured  its hardships. . I made money in its  creeks, but the recollection of mv suf-  ferings is sufficient to almost make  me wish that I had never seen the  place. - CARIBOO.  N. X). MOORE, Pres.  R.

Page 7  MINING   IN    CAJRIJBOO.  Satisfactory Cle;m-up   oi"   tlte   Cariboo  Hydraulic   Mining  Co.  j. M. Browning, of Vancouver, has  received information of the result of  "the first clean-up this season of the  Cariboo Hydraulic Mining Company. The run was only for 172  hours, during which there was a  great deficiency of water, so much so  that on one occasion the supply ran  down to 100 miner's inches, which  was practically useless. The result  of the clean-up is 66 lbs. 3 ozs. of gold  which at $18 per ounce is ��14,310.  The product is being sent down in  the .sba7je of a gold bar and some  nuggets.  Thc result must be held as very  satisfactory when all the circumstances are considered. The deficiency  in-the water supply has militated  very, seriously with ,hydraulic operations, since at no time were there  more than 1,750 miner's inches available. The gravel operated upon is  at the top of the bank. A nugget  weighing 2h dunces, was found in the  gravel at a height .of at least 100 feet  above bedrock.  There lias been much interest felt  as to the first clean-up and the result  will doubtless have a favorable effect  on the industry. The vield has been  almost exactly equal to ��2,000 per  day of three shifts and that'too with  the water supply largely deficient  and irregular even* at thc best. With  a season of* 130.to .140.days, ample  water supply, which will be assured  when the supply in Pol ley's lake is  tapped, .ind ordinary good fqrtune in  the way of freedom from slides or  other accidents, and the Company  will not have reason to regret that its  faith, in the. prospect .led it to put so  much capital into the development of  theproperty..  On the claim of the Horse Fly  Hydraulic Mining. Company, things  appear to be running smoothly. Although on the average the water  supply has not exceeded 1,003 ir ches,  yet the most has been made of it by  keeping up the head to double that  and running for 14 hours instead of  24 with the lesser pressure. The  indications are favorable for a. good  clean up. Meanwhile the management is pushing on with further  drifts. .;*-:>���;���  Sluices in Bad Order.  There was a clean-up on the Van  Winkle hydraulic claim, above  Lytton, about two weeks ago. Asa  result of about a ten days' run, the  clean up was a little .'more than $400.'  The clean-up was made to test the  'efficiency of the sluices and it was  found that that they wei\3 not in a  proper.-condition to retain all the gold.  The work is again going on and it is  now thought that the results will be  satisfactory, as the ground has been  proven ricl\.  THE GRANT HOUSE  �����*���=������  andon, 33.
