In thin chain of mouii  tains several (���������mips, each one enmpris- j  ing a number oi" mineral locutions, ha ve  been prospected during the past two  years aiul especially during' !b<' P"'iS'.  season. These arc Boulder Creek, j  i'lihinieeii Summit, Ki'liy Creek anil  Otter Flat. The last mentioned hasi  been principally prospected for coal, a '  swim of which is reported to have been  discovered. Tlie measures in which  this seam occurs lie westerly from the  Tulameeu River; the full extent of the  Held is not yet known, but one. syndicate has during the past summer located  claims 0 miles in length and reports a  seam of coal LO ft. in thickness,analyses  of which show volatile matter 87/2; fixed  carbon and ash combined, 02 8; ash,  '1.81. This coal is reported as possessing' g'ood steam qualities and adaptable  for coke. In the vicinity of this coal  field extensive deposits of non-titauifer-  ous magnetic iron ore have been discovered; the analysis of a specimen  made by the Geological Survey of Canada yielded 54 per cent, metallic iron .  The writer visited'the Boulder Creek  Camp, which is situated about' o" miles  from Otter Flat and at an altitude of  1,700 feet above the Flat. Prospecting  had only been carried on during' the  past summer, and, of course, the work  performed was of quite limited extent.  Bodies of sulphide ores have been  opened on several claims. Most of i  these bodies gave indications of considerable extent, so far as the outcrops  being- continuous along- the line of strike  were concerned. These ore bodies  occur between walls of schistose rock,  in the vicinity of granite dikes.  From  the  Tulameeu  Summit  specimens of g-alena ore, carrying-  very  fair  values, have been brought in  by prospectors very frequently during- the past  season.   So far as concerns Kelly Creek,  prospectors   had,   at   the  time of the  writer's visit, just commenced  making-  exploitations in that  section.    In  fact,  the district directly  tributary  to Otter  Flat lias not yet  even   been scratched  over by prospectors,  although  quite a  large number have been working during the past season.    Proceeding southwesterly from Otter Flat toward Princeton, the traveler passes the old  placer  camp at the mouth of Granite Creek,  where to-day there stands the  remains  of what must once have  been a  very  prosperous placer mining camp.    Two  hydraulic companies installed plants for  working the creek,   after   the   placer  miners had  worked  out  their  churns.  Both of these plants are idle to-day, mismanagement   being   assigned   as   the  Buck, ( hi nil of these assessment work j  only has been'done up to ihe present'  lime,, loir the ore on the dumps and;  Ilia! iwposed in the working-'- warrants!  the  opinion   ihat   'Kennedy   Mountain j  i.-   a   good   slap'   rooi   and  ior:   the dip is quite flat tlithe south, otii as the seam   occurs  it the inp :,���;' a   loeai   anticlinal   fold,   it  al aboi',1 :'.n    toward   bulb   the  Hid    west.

For  several years no attention was  paid   to  this mining  district,  except  as a  producer of placer gold and platinum.    In  1881 a man named Jamieson discovered  copper ore float on the summit of Copper  Mountain while on  a  hunting  expedition.    Through the information he  imparted  to R. A. Brown,  at present at  Grand   Forks,   an.l   better   known   as  "Volcanic Brown/' the Sim Set mineral  location was made.   As the district was  more inaccessible at that time than it is  even at present,  the  location  for base  metals possessed very little value,  but  Mr. Brown had so much faith  in  the  Sun Set, and was so sanguine  that the  district would have a future,  that   he  kept   the  location  alive,   and   a   few  months back he organized the Sun Set  Copper Company, and sold the property  to that, corporation, retaining for himself a large interest.  The following description of the  Similkameen District, or rather that  portion of it which has recently been  visited by the writer, will include the  mineral zones occurring from Lower  Nicola, located about 12 miles below  Nicola Lake, on the Nicola River to  Copper Mountain, on the southern side  of the Similkameen River, and about 12  miles from Princeton.  In the Nicola Valley, between Lower  Nicola and Nicola Lake, arc coal measures apparently of considerable extent.  A large tract of this land was taken up  several years back when the coal was  first discovered by a private, banking  firm of Victoria. Some prospecting  work has been done and a limited  quantity of coal has been mined annually to supply the local market for fuel  and blacksmith work. This is a bituminous coiil and the writer is reliably  informed that tests made by experts  have determined that it is well adapted  for coke.  A short distance northeast from Lower  Nicola discoveries of  bornite  have recently been made.    From the specimens  shown the writer and from the best  information he could  glean,   these,  prospects promise well, but up to  the  present time only a very limited amount of  work has been done and   not  sul'lieicut  to   warrant  an   expression   .is   to  the  future.    These prospects are located on  what   is   known   us   Ten   Mile  Creek,  Maminet Luke;, Siwasli and Mill Creeks,  the   latter   emptying   into   the   Nicola  River at the town of Nicola Valley. The  country surrounding these points  is an  ideal one for the prospector,   because it  js easily accessible  for   pack  or   saddle  horses, while t he feed on the   ranges is  amply   suflieient   to   support   a   large  number of horses and cattle.  Passing from Nicola Lake over the  summit, one travels through a section  which for about 20 miles is probably  barren of minerals, but near the head  of I )tter Valley several mineral locations I  have been made during' the past (wot  vears.   the   most    prominent   of   these I  ! district, and is  loc-ited -abou  ' southwesterly    from  Simiika iiit'ei!  li'irl hern and western base, of  tain  .".mi   soperates  it   from  Mountain.    i)i) the  eastern   side   flows  Wolf Creek, a tributary of the Siinilka-  ineon.

Small   mountain   streams    and  from  the  Similkameen'   River  side to and across   Wolf  Creek  on  the  other side, has been located as  mineral  claims.    Recently   Kennedy  Mountain  on the opposite side of the. Similkameen,  as   well   as   Friday  Creek  and   Roach  River,   tributaries   emptying  iu  some  considerable   distance   above    Copper  Mountain proper, have also been   prospected to a  considerable  extent.    The  g-eological conditions of Copper   Mountain indicate that, it is composed  of  an  enormous dike of igneous rock,  apparently diorite, which has its trend northwesterly, and is Hanked on the northern  side by felsite, locally termed porphyry,  and  on   the  eastern  side  by   granite.  The development work on the  Sun  Set  mine has been of more extent-  than  on  any oth��r claim.    It consists of 200 feet  of incline, shaft, sunk at 57' angle toward  the northeast, and about SO ft. of  crosscut from the L50 level, driven  through  practically   the   same  ground  as   was  proven by the incline shaft.   No attempt  at drifting along the strike  of  the ore  body has been  made.    The  conditions  exposed by this work  shows  no   walls,  except at the bottom of the incline shaft,  where the contact  between   the  felsite  and diorite was encountered.    The entire mass of diorite is mineralized with  bornite and some chalcopy rite, thechal-  copyrite  usually occurring   along   the  cleavage   planes  and the  bornite  has  splotches   and   particles   disseminated  through the diorite.  Adjoining the Sun Set claim  on  the  west is the Sun Rise.   On this a vertical  shaft has been sunk about 35 feet, and a  cross-cut started from the  bottom  toward the Sun Set  workings.    This location is about 100 feet lower  than  the  Sun Set.    The ore has the same  characteristics.except that muchless bornite  occurs,   and   the   chalcopyrite   is   distributed very even Iv through the diorite  I gangue.    Between the Sun Set and the  Sun Rise shafts there  is a distance  of  about 1UU   feet  and  on  the  surface  at  intervals   outcroppings   occur,    which  indicate  the occurrence of  ore   below  them of the same character as that exposed in the. workings.    As the   incline  Granite    Creek    the    traveler   shaft on the Sun  Set  was  sunk   at  an  enters the range  of  mountains  which ! fl,,*'lu of r,7J u,wiil'd  t!*'�� northeast  and  extend from Otter Vallev to the Siiniik-1 llu; ltuss-ciU run toward the southwest,  on one j some springs will furnish a limited  supply for domestic purposes, hut for  power purposes the Similkameen River  will be the mainstay of the district. Tho  supply of timber for both fuel and mine  timbering is plentiful and of good  quality, being principally pine.  One of the most attractive features to  both the prospector and mining operator is the fact that horses can be used  anywhere in this district. Ample feed  grows on all the mountains, chiefly of  the bunch grass variety. The summits  of the mountains are usually plateaus  of considerable extent. The only drawback to the district is,the fact that the  deposit, of moraine from the glacial  period is enormous and consequently  outcroppings and country rock exposed  by nature are not as plentiful as in  other mining districts of the province,  but, on the other hand, the natural resources of the district, which include  besides copper-gold ores and galena,  coal, iron ore, limestone, agricultural  lands, ranges and a very desirable  climate,commend this district especially  to attention.���W.

Considerable lumber was trailed to  the California this week.  There are 10 men working at the  Sovereign and 12 at the Argenta.  The shareholders in the Florida Co.  will hold a meeting in Kaslo to-day.   ,  Thomas Wall has made a strike of  rich ore on his claims south of Pilot Bay.  The Bosun has shipped 1000 tons this  year. It holds the record on Slocan  lake.  Shipping of concentrates will commence this month from the Tvanhoe  mill.  The Bondholder group has not been  bonded to anyone, nor is any deal  pending.  Manyr rich strikes indicate that nearly  all the Slocan mines are improving with  development.  The Rambler-Cariboo will erect a mill  to treat the vast amount of low grad��  ore they have on hand.  The Sunset, near Whitewater, will  start shipping when the snow grows  deep enough for rawhiding.  Last week the Arlington ihipped 45  tons, Enterprise 20, Hampton 5, Last  Chance 99, Payne 409, Slocan Star 40,  American Boy 19.  The bonding of the True Blue by the  Canadian Goldfields Syndicate means  much tor Kaslo. The merit of the property will soon be known and all doubts  removed.  The tram at the Highland, near Ains-  worth, is about completed. The mill  will be ready for operation next month.  Ore will be shipped to the Nelson  smelter this month.  The recent strike made on the Emily  Edith, near New Denver, is reported to  be one of utmost importance to the lake  district. The ledge is one of great  width and carries several stringers of  clean ore of various sizes, but the main  ore shoot lately tapped lies on the hanging wall and is seven feet across where  exposed. This proves the Emily Edith  to be a great mine, and demonstrates  that tin* big ledges on Four Mile are  of far greater importance than they are  now looked upon.

The old man was evidently of an  industrious nature, and if the  United States had many more like  him it would not be necessary to  send immigrant agents abroad.  The way of the vain is hard. Jay  Gould's daughter married a French  count. She was stuck on title, and  he on money. In four years the  count blew in over five millions,  and now George (Jould has been  appointed a. trustee to look after  his sister's linanein-l alYairs. No  guardian has as yet been appointed'!  for the count. I  thousand yeai-s ago is an evidence  of a weak and cowardly mentality.  All really great men have been and  are free from the delusions taught  by religion. Study history if you  doubt my veracity.  The Scotch kirk used to be very  unmerciful to sinners. As an instance, about the beginning of the  19th century in Edinburgh, Scotland, a boy named Thomas Aiken-  head Avas tried for blasphemy. He  had made fun of Moses and joshed  about hell with his companions.  The poor boy begged the pardon of  the church, but it was of no avail.  He was executed, and although his  mother begged for his body she was  refused and he was buried at the  foot of the scaffold. If it had not  been for, brave men in the past  scenes like this might still be witnessed.  Judging from the following extract from Reynolds Newspaper a  few missionaries might find jobs  among the worse than heathen in  England. ' 'Miss Hopkins, who has  made the rescue of girls a life work,  said before the committee, "I am  afraid that the age at which children go astray is getting younger.  Of three children I rescued in one  week, one was 12 years old and a  prostitute. Another was nine, and  a prostitute so diseased that she  died. The third was nine and a  mother at that age.' " This shows  a frightful state of affairs in one of  the greatest Christian nations on  earth. Pagans could scarcely outdo it.  Many people in Chicago have  formed a society for the promulgation of the raw food idea. None  of the members eat anything that  has been cooked, claiming that the  action of fire destroys the most  nutritious part of food and leaves  us to consume too much ashes,  lime and other properties that we  do not need in such large quantities. It is claimed that a raw food  diet will double the age of the  human race. Man takes about 25  years to mature, and lives an average of 34 years. The swan matures  in two or three years, and has been  known to live 300 years. Other  birds and animals likewise. If  there is any great advantage in  living to a great age and raw food  will produce it everyone should  change their mode of living.  religion oh this earth. They set  aside a day sacred to the worship  of the sun, hence the origin of Sunday. Sunday legislation was first  created in Rome by Constantine  who passed such a law for selfish  purposes in 321 A. D. As Christians  look upon the bible as their guide  and authority for annoying their  neighbors who do not think the  same way they might search it for  a,divine command relating to Sun-  da}'. Rev. J. B. Waggoner says  that neither God, Christ, angels or  inspired men have ever said one  word in favor of Sunday as a holy  day.    It is time the delusion about  Sunday desecration was washed  away in   all  countries  where  the  people are supposed to know something. The fining of a woman recently in London, Ontario, for selling a cigar on Sunday is evidence  that science and education have  not yet obliterated the tryanny of  ignorance in some parts of Canada  ounces of gold, 40,500,000 ounces of silver,  160,000 tons  of lead:  total   value  about 864,000,000,  of which  gold  con-  I stituted nearly $25,000,000.

To men working where they are liable  lo be "leaded," whether in mine or  smelter, barley water is recommended  as a corrective. It should be used right  along-. x\ good antidote for lead poisoning is dilute Bulphuiie acid. A drop in  a glass of water should afford relief  The ordinary case of lead poisoning is  inhalation of the oxide of lead, and the  sulphuric acid in the water drank immediately converts it into a sulphate of  lead that passes out of the system.  W.E. Mead, of Ward, Col., says that  it is simply a matter ot timbering to  have good air in the breast of any tunnel or in the bottom of any shaft, as  well as through every drift and stope in  any mine. It will cost a little more,  but not nearly as much as will be  gained by the extra.work obtained from  men working in good clean air instead  of air charged with powder fumes  Motion in air is caused by difference in  pressure, and this can be obtained by  heat or by some artificial means. Box  up the skip or cage way and the travel  of the skip or cage will clear the bottom  of the shaft, acting like the sucker in a  pump. If one has a tunnel ol any con  siderable length, make it double track  and partition between the tracks; run  the cars up one side and down the other  and have clear air at the breast If a  fan is used, have a suction fan, it will  draw out the gases. A blower only  mixes these gases up, it does not remote thein. If the air hangs dead in  the bottom of the shaft, hang a fire pot  in the air shaft and the trouble is instantly removed. Tlm ' difference in  work obtained from work ing in clear  air over air that is foul is frequently 50  per cent., while it is merely a matter of  lumber partitions and bulkheads to  ventilate every part of a mine.

In the Vernon News, a patent  insided rancher's paper, can be  found Government advertisements  relating to affairs in Kootenay,  Nelson, Revelstoke, Nakusp, Fort  Steele, and other points distant  from the Okanagan.

The belief is  kept warm by parsons who aim to  obtain a monopoly of the day and  maintain a- gigantic trust for that  purpose. As a matter of fact people  who shout for Sunday observance  are densely ignorant upon the subject.  Long before the Christian era:  was born the pagans worshipped  the sun.which to my mind is about  as good a- religion as any. The sun  is the life and light of the world.  If it fell by the wayside we would  cut nothing but ice on this mundane  sphere, and that only for a few  days. Hence tin*, pagans showed  horse sense in worshipping Old Sol,  and from the sun has sprung every  scienck and  miking.  Glass, such as is used for window  panes, is produced by the fusion at a  very high temperature of purified white  sand, lime, sulphate of soda, arsenic,  manganese, salt cake and "cullet," or  broken glass.  The largest coke plant in the world  is at the Standard Shaft mine, Mount-  Pleasant, Pennsylvania. There are 908  coke ovens; the daily consumption of  coal is 3,000 tons daily; daily coke output, 125 carloads.  Other things bebig equal, gold ore  carrying five ounces of silver' per ton  would probably yield better commercial  results with the cyanide process than  by chlorination, the silver being lost in  the latter process.  At the time of cessation of work at  the Rand, South African gold mines,  the consumption of dynamite was about  250,000 cases of fifty pounds each per  annum; the price of dynamite No. 1  was about 75 shillings (SIS.25) per  case.  Every representative body of metal  miners in convention in the last four  years have, resolved in favor of the re- j  vision of the American mining law, and j  such proposed revision has been variously drafted, but so far none other  than tentative effort has been made to  secure legislation thereon.  Utah miners say there is more profit  in operating a silver-lead mine now  with silver at 03�� cents than when it  was 90 cents an ounce. Improved and  cheaper methods, economic processes,  reduced expenses, better transportation  facilities, improved machinery, utilization of all mine products, are among  the stated causes.  Seventy-five per cent, of the circulation at Nome and other Alaskan points  is in Canadian currency: in the Klondike American bills are at a premium.  .I.N. Garner, special agent Treasury  Department, says: "In Nome I found  that about 75 per cent, of the money in  circulation was Canadian money. About  15 per cent, only was American and 10  per cent, gold dust."  The American Smelting company in  its first year is credited with having  smelted at its various plants about  1,500,000 tons of ore; it used 600,000  tons of fuel and 400,000 tons of flux; the  output of the refineries was 1,200,000 j  A conversation���unauthorized version, hut highly probable:  Sir W.

Asleep, awake, by night or day,  The friends I seek are seeking me.  No wind can drive my barque astray,  Nor change the tide of destiny.  What matters if 1 stand alone?

When Ferdinand and Isabella ruled,  second to none of the great nationalities  of the west was Spain. Her commerce  was vast, her colonies numerous, her  culture rare, her art glorious, her power  almost supreme. How came the fall  from the heights of her ancient splendor  to the gutter of her present decrepitude?  But one answer is there. Because of  Rome. Romish priests have ruled and  ruined Spain; and standing midst the  mental decadence, the moral decay, the  political ruin, the military inaptitude,  the religious degradation, the utter  ruin, of the nation, the priests might  truthfully, when asked to show the outcome of their power and their influence,  answer "look around." When she  entered on her late disastrous war with  the United States, Crispi, Italy's great  statesman, on being asked his opinion,  answered, "ft is the end of Spain. The  Spaniards have shown themselves cruel,  barbarous, and utterly incapable of  governing the Pearl of the Antilles. The  prime cause of all this is the general  .state of ignorance in the upper as well  as the lower classes. It is the. priesthood, absolutely sovereign, which has  led that line country into ruin."  Well and truly did Crispi speak, and  with the full 'assurance of absolute  knowledge, knowledge forced upon him  bv the condition of abject misery to  which the priesthood had reduced his  own country and his own countrymen,  until, at last, Cavour and Garibaldi and  Victor Emmanuel rose up ami drove  before them, at bayonet-point and  cannon-mouth, the vampire host which  for ten dark and sorrow-laden centuries  had feasted on the life-blood of the  people. Tersely but fully did Garibaldi  sum the situation up when, surveying  the ignorance, the poverty, the brutal  depravity, and the crime-encrusted lives  of the Italian people, he sorrowfully  exclaimed, "The priesthood has been  the cancer of Italv." And as of Italy,  so of Spain, so of Portugal, so of every  nation which bows down before and is  led to ruin by that most miserable of all  fetiches, a man-made priesthood.  Examine, even in the most cursory  manner, the world's map, and whenever  you find ignorance, lack of commercial  enterprise, crime run rampant, political  decadence, mental stagnation, there  vou find the priesthood fattening on  the life-blood of the people, and, as a  very cancer eating into the vitals of  their industry, their wealth, their possessions, their possibilities for great and  good and noble undertakings. Look at  the Celtic south and west of Ireland,  look at the cantons of Switzerland  peopled by the Latins; look at the  southern provinces of Luther's land,  where Luther's work was not at all, or  onlv partly done; look at Spain and  ltaiv and France and Austria and  Portugal; look at Mexico and tlie turmoil-tossed Popuhlics of Central and  South America: and in them you see  every unlovely attribute of humanity  magnified ami'distorted and. made more  unlovely still; in them you see ignorance  settled as a pall upon, the masses of the  people; in them you see grinding poverty;  in them you see bloodshed and riot,  blackguardism and illegitimacy, and in  them also you see, hovering over and  blasting all who fell beneath its black,  pest-laden shadow, the priesthood.  But light is flowing in upon the darkness; the'light of mental liberty, which  is gradually driving the shadows of  superstition from this old world of ours;  the light of liberty, by the glimmer of  whose early dawn the hammer of common sense is being lifted up to smite  and break in pieces the stony-hearted  destroyers of the people, the priestB,  aye, and many of the preachers, too,  who have lon��- been weighed in the  balance of the world's patience and forbearance; weighed, only at last to be  found wanting, wanting in every attribute of truth and honor and honesty,  wanting in pity for the weakly,in mercy  for the hopeless, in common justice between man and man. To this increep-  ing of the light of liberty, dissipation of  the mists ol superstition, many things  bear witness. In the daily papers of  April 25, 1H99, we read the following  Renter's telegram:  "Con i inn a.'��� An anti-clerical meeting:  was held here to-day, attended by 300  people. Violent discourses were delivered against the clergy, the evils  affecting the country being attributed  to the Jesuits and the monks.''  ''Bakck.i.oxa.���-Violent speeches were  made to-day at a meeting of Freethinkers here. One orator bitterly attacked the Jesuits and said the Philippines had been lost to Spain by the.  monks."  And that this orator spoke but simples  truth witness a cablegram published in  the American newspapers of May 1, last.  The subject is "The Situation in the  Philippines," and lie said the situation  is summed up as follows: "The friars  are a menace and a danger to the introduction of civilization."  In France the exodus from Home is  growing, and the republic has, by a  timely discovery, been awakened to the  dangers of allowing vast wealth to be  accumulated by the servants of the  "true church," who play upon the  credulity of the living, the terrors of  the dying. Quite recently the "House  of the Assumjitionist Fathers" in Paris  was searched by order of the government. In the cell of one holy "Brother,"  vowed of course to poverty, was found  in notes, gold and securities the tidy  little sum of ��72,000. And now France  contemplates important changes in the  law governing religious bequests and  the holding of property by religious  communities.  In Austria the popular movement  from Rome has assumed proportions  which are described by Romish authorities as "alarming."  And so the dawn is stealing quietly,  yet surely, over the nations of the earth,  giving light to the understanding-, freedom to the will, and strength to the  heart of all mankind. And not from  Rome alone are men seeking to be free.  Too long and too much have they been  vexed by a pseudo-Christianity which,  preaching charity, has practiced selfishness. Trading on the names of mighty  men who feared not death and persecution, we have to-day "Protestants" who  make a living by their Protestantism,  but who have long ceased to protest.  Therefore do we find the churches practically deserted, and by their benches,  two-thirds empty, one-third filled with  women and their children, testifying  that men have grown weary and heartsick of the attenuated platitudes preached in the name of the Galilean teacher,  who tore the veil of humbug and hypocrisy from off the faces of deceivers of  the people.���N. V. Ruthven, ex-priest,  in the Isle of Wight Guardian.  ATE   THIS  "HOLY   GHOST."  The old, blackened, weather-beaten  | church among the pines stood on the  summit of the hill. It was during  the semi-annual revival. The preacher had been at the business of calling  sinners to repentance for many a year  and was acquainted with all the iittle  arts known to the profession in catching them both ways, going and coming. But his plan for this spring was  the greatest he had ever practiced  and was the talk of the neighborhood.  For nights he had worked it, with  the aid of a very young member of  the church, the son of one of his  deacons ind a very sturdy, reliable  young fellow. To mystify and rouse  his hearers to a frenzy of religious  emotion he had thought of the novel  plan of having the Holy Ghost descend in the form of a white dove  every night.  His co worker manipulated the  Holy Ghost, which was a white  pigeon, from the old loft of the church,  Before dark John, with the Holy  Ghost tor company, crept up in the  loft and waited patiently for the congregation to assemble. At a certain  time in the sermon John let fly the  white pigeon, and the preacher dwelt  dramatically upon the Holy Ghost  descending upon the people. That  always moved his hearers to violent  demonstrations and brought many to  the foot of the cross.  But one fateful night John had forgotten and left the pigeon in the loft,  where it was devoured by a lank,  hungry cat. The misfortune was not  discovered until too late for John to  warn the preacher about bringing in  act the third and last.  When the thrilling and intense  moment arrived and the preacher  cried with a loud voice, saying, "And  the Holy Ghost descended on the  people," he held out his hands and  closed his eyes, as if waiting for the  "peace that passeth all understanding" to rest on his devoted head.  At that trying time the hearers  were aroused from their keen expectancy by the agonized whisper of  John from a crack in the loft directly  over the waiting   preacher's  head:  "Uncle Joe! Uncle Joe! De cat's  done eat up de Holy Ghost! Must I  let down de eat?'' '  A    KOOTENAY    GLASS.  The story is told that a well-known  business man stepped into an East  Superior Street saloon not long ago  and asked for a glass ot beer. A. new  man was behind the bar, and he at  once filled up a medium-sized glass  with the foamy beverage, and set it  down in front of the patron. Now, it  appears that the afore-mentioned  business man was a regular customer  at the establishment, and he had  always been in the habit of having  one of the largest craft in the place  filled up when he called for the decoction that made Milwaukee famous.  It was with a touch of impatience,  therefore, avers the Duluth, Minn.,  News Tribune, that he observed the  new booze clerk was giving him a  comparatively small glass.  "Here! what are you giving me ?"  he said to the man behind the bar.  '"I always take large ones."  The manager of the place, an oid  German, who was near by, heard the  conversation and, noticing the error,  came up. He was thinking that the  more ordinary class of people took  the large schooners, and said apologetically:  "He vas a new man, Mr. Schmidt,  und dinks you vas a chintlemans."

The German emperor has commanded the celebration of the seventh  hundred anniversary of the first  mining operations in Germany. These  were begun in the Harz Mountains,  the principal minerals being silver  and copper. The emperor himself  will attend the celebrations, which  will take place at Hettstedt, in Saxony, where the first mine is said to  have been opened, and will also visit  Eislehen, a large copper mining  center, where Martin Luther, whose  father was a miner there, was born.  The demand for copper on both  sides of the Atlantic is fully equal to  the supply.

Fred \Vi!iiain>u.H and 'Allien S'.aiiiield  have a'o-roup called the Eureka, from  which some remarkable assays have  been obtained. They have done considerable work on the property and are  now driving-a. HO foot crosscut tunnel.  The values are found in tellurium and  assays have run as high as -53-20.  The coal properties of the district  have not been exploited to any great  extent as yet, but further developments  may be announced shortly The Kettle  river and its affluents contain hundreds  of tons of float, and the coal is a first-  class steam product which will eventually be of great value for domestic use  .Tlie claims owned by George Doyle,  which are three miles north of Monashee,, axe looking particularly well. He  lias a strong lead of arsenical iron with  two feet of solid ore. An assay from  the group made recently gave returns  of Siol. The work to date, has been for  assessment purposes ami con lined largely  to the surface..  The < lids pro pert v. owned by the i Mds  brothers ;<nd i'age, :< fairly well known.  They have live claims oa which the. |  lead is opened un for almost the full  length uf two claims. There are three  parallel ledges and an average assay  for the center "iOO ;'o��t mi all three is-Siio.  An expert recently visited t.iio property  and took samples from various points  on the. iedge.s. from which he secured  a.'i avei;uge of s=l".. The i this brothers  recently returned from Kmgiand and  have resumed work on the claims.  They intend sinking on the central lead  and will continue operations all   winter.  One of the disadvantages under which  the prospectors .labor at the present  time arises out of the arrangements of  mining districts. At one point a radius  may be drawn of a mi'e. in which the  Vernon and Kettle River districts enter.  A prospector may locate a few claims  and be compelled, in order to record or  look up 'previous records, to travel as  far as the Recorder"* ollice for the Fettle River division or to Vernon as the  case may be. The outlay in cash and  time thus necessitated is a'large item  and works a hardship. The solution is  to form a new division,with a recorder's  office at a central point This step will  doubtless be taken when the business  of the district assumes sufficient magnitude to warrant action.���Midway Advance.  Considerable importance is attached  by   all   those interested in  claims on,  Monashee Mountain to the sale of the  Monashee mine by Mclntyre and Lisle  to Dunsmuir and Rithet of Victoria,  as  it is the intention of the new owners to  instal new machinery and  put  a  large  force of men at work at an  early date.  The property is situated on the mountain  of the same name and is reached by  going west from Midway up  the main  Kettle river.   The Monashee is in every  sense a pioneer, having been staked 20  years ago and crown granted about 14  years since.    It has a strong continuous  ledge averaging 810 to ��15 in free milling" ore on  the eastern claims of the  group, and almost any amount on the  western end,  where the ledge carries  free gold.    An old fashioned mill  was  placed on the group some time ago, and  this   has   proved   one of the greatest  drawbacks to the property, as the plant  would   not save values.    The, owners  have planned an extensive programme  of work, including a modern stamp mill.  The Monashee is regarded as a coming  property.  CANOE   RIVKIl   .MICA    MINES.  new. railway  station.

The main shaft of the old mine  has been 'deepened to -K>0 feet, and at  the depth of 450 feet a station is being-  put in. A cross section of the vein at  this shaft shows a width of 18 feet of  solid copper ore.  The ore from this mine is very easily  reduced, and when the necessary  machinery is put in operation Bruce  Mines will have the only plant in Canada turning out ingot copper.���Sault  (Ont ) Star.  i",ooki'N'   Anr.  vixtak.

They left Edmonton  on the  19th of April last, traveling by  pack  train thiough the Yellowhead pass.  They were 33  days going  in  from  Edmonton and  14 days coming out  from the mine to Golden.    The mine  lies about 550 miles west from Edmonton and 225 north of Golden  on the  main line of the C. P. R.    The  mica  location   now   being   developed   by  Messrs. Stewart and McLaughlin was  discovered by  Mr. McLaughlin  two  years ago.    On the present trip they,  assisted by a number of miner's, made  a cut and did a great deal of development work, and  now  have  a  large  quantity of mica dressed and  ready  for shipment.    A cabin was also put  up and a blacksmith shop and  other  buildings will be put up next  year.  The mica is electrical and  of  excellent quality, and in almost unlimited  quantity.
