NEW DENVER,  B. C,   NOVEMBER 28, 1895.  Price ��2.00 a Year.  A New Mining Centre.  Vernon is now likely to become a  , mining centre, as well as the hub of  a wonderfully fertile agricultural  country. W. J. Armstrong" and other  ..residents of Vernon, who have a mining" claim on Swan lake, seven-miles  north of Vernon, have a proposition  from a mining man of note, in England, to' bond their property and  work it for one yenr. Arrangements  are almost sure to be made. The  mine is on the wagon road between  Vernon and Larkin, and is a veritable quarry of mineral, assaying  from $3 to $13 a ton, free milling  gold. This may yet prove to be a  second. Tread well mine. Symmons  Bros, and C. F. Costerton, also of  Vernon, have located claims back of  the ��� B. X. raneh close to town that  have assayed up to $203 per ton.  Quite a number have promising pros-  ��� pects in gold. The Armstrong pro-  . perty , is  claimed' to be' practically.  (V.  inexhaustible.  NORTHERN KOOTHNAl.  ,. Captain.John Grant was .in,_ town  Wednesday.    He  seenis   very-well  pleased with the progress made on  the Maple Leaf, Illecillewaet, -where  he has been superintending operations, and has just let a contract for  200 feet of tunnelling.    A force of men  will be at work thou^'hout the winter  but their work will be confined entirely  to developement  work.    No  effort will be made to ship ore until  the proposed tramway and concentrator are put in. The captain has visited the new finds on the north fork of  the Illecillewaet recently and is very  enthusiastic about them, speaking in  the   highest terms not only - of the  mineral but also of the lay of the  country which is comparatively level-  Tney had eight horses with the party  and packed out over 203 pounds cf  samples which have been forwarded  to Vancouver for a mill test.    The  assay received heretofore from these  findsgave $5.50 in gold and over 400  oz. in silver per ton besides which  -there', is  every   indication  of very  large pre bodies,   all of which has  helj. ed to, convince the captain that  the north fork will be a great producer, probably  the greatest in the  ���.country';:'  E. T. Kinman came in from Trout  I Lake Thursday. He * has been at  work on the American, of which he  is one of the owners, and will put in  the winter, there. They will work  six or eight men all winter and expect to have the distinction of being  fi st to ship ore from the Trout lake  district.   They will commence ship  ping as soon as the weather permits  of rawinding over the trail recently  completed, and count on delivering  from 80 to 100 tons at Tacoma this  winter.    The ore of the American, at  present prices is worth about $110 per  tori.     Mr.', Kinman   disposed   of, a  quarter interest in the American to  Abrahamson Bros, yesterday. He  will return almost immediately with  rawhides, ore sacks and several tons  of supplies for the7 winter's, work.  , Andy Parks and J. D. Sibbald returned from the- Bend Wednesday  evening. Bedrock^ had not been  reached when they left the Park  mine last Sunday and there is a probability that work will be. suspended  for the winter as no provision has  been made for winter working and  the frost is beginning to interfere with  the operations.     v ''    ,  Tom   Downs and Charlie YHolden  came up from Trout Lake-this week.  transfer of the Silver Cup. This is  one of the highest grade propositions  in the ' Trout- Lake district. Win.

They look  for a rush in there next summer and  feel confident it will occur. Claim  owners are doing more work on their  properties than at any time previously.  Home's boat returned from the  bend to-day. It will start for Trout  lake Monday with six tons of supplies.  Howe and Anderson have got their  supplies up and started work on the  Gold Yam, Carnes creek.���Mail.  1884, when Mr. Wheeler and Henry  Tobias, his companion, first arrived  on Kootenay lake and camped at the  Warm Springs, now called Ainsworth.  After looking over the country they  decided it was a healthy place to  prospect for mineral. Accordingly  they returned by. row boat to Dave  McLaughlan's, on Kootenay river,  where they had left theiranain store  of supplies and outfit. While rowing  up the Kootenay they were attracted  by the wild cries of an Jndian.  Rounding a bend, they came in sight  of a Siwash in a canoe who was circling around a black bear in the water,  and at the same time giving vent to  terrible yells. Soon another Indian  in a canoe came in sight from up the  river, he like his brother Siwash,  circled around bruin. Finallylndian  no. one drew so near the bear he  could reach him with his paddle,  raising the same he brought the sharp  MINING NOTE'S.  /;'  Happening's   of   Interest   Among  Treasure Vaults.  the  It is'said, that they are. negotiating a. edge down with great force across  the small of-the animal's back, com-  pletel_/ disabling him, then the Siwash "took the bear by the, head  towed him ashore where the work of  A STORY OF TWO BEARS.  A W. Wheeler, a piominent miner  of Ainsworth, on Kootenay lake, is  undoubtedly the oldest white resident  in this section of British Columbia.  That is one of the pioneers who have  remained here continually since first  setting foot in tins portion  of Her  Majesty's domain.  Naturally AI. is a veritable mine of  old time reminiscences, buthis innate  modesty prevents him from giving  utterance to his experiences, when  the bulk of the population of thi*  country was the noble Siwash. ���  Recently a scribe, who occasionally  pencils a line for The Ledge, happened to be in Ainsworth arid to him  AL related two, bear stories which  came under his observation, and as  they are a little outside the bounds Of  such yarns they are hereby given  publicity.  It was about the middle cf June,  A year or so later Mr.   Wheeler  and Alex. McLeod also now a resident of Ainsworth, were working on  Patolea claim and had   "Skeokuni  I*ete," since then killed by his brother, and another Siwash helping them  one day Pete asked a lay off so as to  go hunting.  His request was granted  as the camp was out of fresh meat.  Mr. Wheeler furnished him with a  modern Winchester for the trip.  Late  (that night Pete returned.   He   had  nothing to say to his white brother  but kept up a   pow-wow   with   his  dusky  companion.     The  following  morning Pete stated he had killed a  monster bear which would require  the entire force of four men to bring  to camp.   Mr. Wheeler examined the  gun and counied the cartridges and  found that not a shot had been fired  from the weapon.    However he went  with the others and found a huge  bear lying dead on a rocky knoll.  We questioned as to how he had killed the animal,   Pe;e stated  he had  came upon bruin while he was asleep.  Picking up a club lie hit it a tarrific  whack over the head breaking the  club, the bear; opened his jaws and  started for the Indian when Pete jab  bed the jagged end or the stick in  the bears mouth, down his throat and  ruptured   his juglar, causing him to  bleed to death.  Miss Adair has gone to Sandon and  will remain a few weeks.  A report has been circulated during the past few days that the 'Kaslo  & Slocan Ra il way have bought the  Silverton town site and have decided  fo extend the road to that point.  _ The Dardanelles are shipping, ore  to the Everett smelter.

The  owners purpose working ail winter.  Some of the men employed on the  Dead man have been laid off as the  ore-house is filled with ore and is  awaitine: snow for shipment. The  force will be increased now that the "  desired snow has come.  The loys from the Exchange mine  were in tow.i this week and report a ���  splendid showing in the mine, the :  pay streak has enlarged considerably  and they intend shipping 2C0 sicks of  ore as soon as possible.

ODD TALKS AVITH OLD TIMERS.  By Cahiboo in the Province.  We were telling stories in which  the late Sir Matthew Bailey Begbie  figured when cut short no doubt to  make room lor the many more good  things which had to find a place in  The Province of October 2(>th.  But enough of story telling.    Let  us now take up our talk where wc  left off.   It brought us to the year  18(8 and left us at Barkerville, not  much of a place at th�� time, as we  Pave seen.    Up to this date the more  ai dent spirits had pushed their way  in and for the hardship they endured as the pioneers of tlie country very  manv  cf them  had a good pile to  -.how.    In the following year,  1804,  came the big rush when the country  was fairly inundated by all sorts and  conditions of men���especially conditions.    Men who had had any ex}.er  ience- in mining came fanly  well  prepared, but they were in the great  minority.     Such   wild  stories ��� had  gone abroad as to the  richness of the  country that an idea appeared to prevail that all one  had to do was to  come in and help himself  to gold.  That inordinate influx, I am convinced, has done more than anything else  to retard the development of Kootenay and Cariboo.    Men who could  not -and l would not bt a success anywhere  flocked "in   ai d   wheni  they  failed to find if the veritable Eldorado  thev had pictured to themselves they  ��� cleared out again to give the Balloon  "Country the worst name they could  conceive    ���  ��-    Hundreds,, of  these fellows   came  into tlie. country penniless, doubtless  in the  hope of finding employment  blood stains. I could then Mieve.  his stow for I have seen horses in a  "train stampede when attacked  i ,  *.- Arrcr    rmp    AVIIO    liaS  places   along  the  route-places  at  rack train stampede when a��ac, eu  ^�� f���^ m,^t be effeotuallj  by theee pests    ��\���*���X atmcked by robbers-and at the*  followed a train in that country, in  the warm season muss have noticed  how the poor horses, hungry and  fatigued though they be, will gather  round the camp fire, their instinct  teaching: thun that the smoke will  keep off the little pests. The poor  fellow to whom I allude soon afterwards developed into a good miner���  and a successful one at that.  A christening, I need scarcely sa?>,  was a rare ceremony in Cariboo in  the Pioneer Hall,  Broad Street, any  tended  for   our  camp disappeared  day.   There were a few dangerous gradually but surely from before the  "-   ~,<���   of parson and those of us who Jiad the  curiosity to watch him operate.    He  was not invited to  breakfast  next  morning.     We  afterwards  learned  that  whenever and   wherever this  gentleman took a meal in Cariboo, or  Kootenay   he  was  charged double  fare.   The story is told of him that on  one  occasion   having been   served  with his double allowance he called  attacked by robbers--and at these  the men dismounted and walked behind their horses. Their instructions  were in case of attack to shoot the  brutes and fight for the gold. But  the emergency never arose. Individuals or small parties of miners  were frequently attacked and robbed  were frequently attacked and robbcci wiui uu> uuuW1J ���.   and in too many instances murdered for a lew more beans,  "just to finish  "   *TT ���** w "H'^wp with the bacon," and then   " a little  Mill    111   l \J\J   tixtx S      *.,^-.-~-   for their gold. 'Hence it was that we  were fond of company in our travels  through Cariboo.'  We were always  the  early   da vs.     There   were  no expecting to be surprised by one or  children'there" to be christened, ex- other of the murderous band who fre-  cept, indeed, those of the��� aborigines, '^"^nted the country about this time  -  .-. __. ���4. 4.1^ fhiYf* knew nothing  but when it offered  they  could  not  work.   It was  "every man for himself and the Lord for us all" then; so  that the stranger in  a strange land,  while he might meet *vith sympathy,  ���cjuld not relv on-practical help.' l_.no  scenes in Victoria during tins period  have already  been  described in our  "talks" by'old timers who were eye  witnesses. ' I was up couhtry  at tne  time,   but if they were wo.-se  here (  than thev were  up there it would be j  impossible   to   exaggerate.    1   have"  s'��en scores of men c< me into Bar Iberville dead broke and so thoroughly  done u]) bv their long tramp as to be  practically unfit for any class or work,  cept, mueeu, mu^ ^ v..^ ..._   ,,  and they at the time knew nothing  of the advantages or benefits of' a  godfather or godmother. , But we had j  a christening without a child.    The j  ceremony���was performed by the late  Kev. Mr, Evans one bright Sunday  morning in August, ��� 1864, in the presence  oi a large and distinguished  crowd.     And as .if to  insure  that  everything  was done ��� according ' to  law the late Sir Matthew Bailey Begbie,   Judge Cox and Jud<?.e  Reilly  were present. ��� All t he; miners :b�� the  district gathered round, and with due  solemnity the parson named Cameron-  town, in deference to the wishes of  "the people " and the poor fellow we  used   to  call  Millionaire  Cameron.  There was prayer, the singing of a  hymn or two, and a nice little sermon.    Service   over we proceed to  drink  the   health of Camerontown.  If the liberality and enthusiasm dis:  played on  that occasion  could have  made'the place anything like what  we wished for,  Camerontown would  long since have been the most popul  Z?and prosperous city  m ;the l��.o;  .vjnee. Oh. what a time we had !  The following morning some of the)  boys were looking for a shoe-horn-to  get their caps on. The" next time I  iriet the parson was at the laying of  the foundation stone of the old church  at the corner of Broad and Pandora  Streets, lately occupied by the Salvation Army.  In the same year (18G4) the first  two white women that ever put foot  in Barker ville came there. .They  were Mi s. Cameron,   whose husband  quented the country about this time,  and always tried to be prepared for  an attack. Of course there was a  good deal of unnecessary fear entertained all strangers being eyed with  suspicion.. .  I remember on one occasion when  coming down' to' Yale getting quite a  respectable fright.. We bad camped  for the night and had just completed  our evening, meal when we heard  what sounded like an army of desperadoes approach. Every" man of  us was up in arms. The spokesman  of ��� the approaching party advanced  and announced himself as the Rev.  Mr.   S .   He  requested   that he  might be,allowed to camp on the  same ground and seeing there was J  no apparent cause 'for'alarm we consented aiid tried to make the. visitors  as' comfortable as possible. . One of  our party,suggested  to the new,comers' that they need not build a fire as  ours was going!,' and while the others  were unpacking invited the parson to  help himself to a meal which we had  partially  prepared   in. view   of an  early start the next morning. - There  was a large pan "of bacon and beans  in view and these the Rev.   gentleman' attacked with wonderful' vigor.  Now 'tis a /well-established fact that  the braciffg'air of the mountain's has  an appetising effect upon most people,  but  we never until  this particular  occasion had any thin sr like a correct  conception of the powers of the air  upjn a man's appetite.   The mess in  with the bacon," and then " a little  more bacon to finish the beans," and  again beans for the bacon and bacon  for the beans. At last the boarding-  house keeper suggested, "now, parson, you must make up your mind  which you will have���the bacon or  the beans'the beans or the bacon.  You will never get through if you  don't." History does not record the  decision of the gentleman with the  appetite., ,    -  IDEISTTIST  KASLO,  B.G.  , Graduate of American College of Dental Surgery  Chicago.

Archie Cooper, of Sandon, was  brought in on Sunday last suffering  from a stroke of complete paralysis  of the right half of his body, his condition has so far remained unchanged, but hopes are enterained of his  recovery.  W. Merkley of this town had the  misfortune to have one of his fingers  badly smashed by a falling rock in  the Curric mine. The injured member was dressed on Sunday last, and  is hoped that amputation will be  unnecessary.

The   visit  of the British Columbia  board of trade to the Kootenay was  for the express purpose oi establishing, trade relation*. It will be  difficult for Victoria or Vanco uver to  wrest the trade from Spokane. Many  articles both in dry goods and groceries must be purchased in the  United States, pay . a duty, then be  1 shipped to the coast and back, again  to Kootenay; while Spokane,, right  under the border and only a short  distance from the scene of greatest  activity in British Columbia, can successfully compete with the Vancouver  merchant.

The town of Tunbridge Wells was  all   excitement on   the   appearance  there of horseless carriages and motor  tricycles which were-.exhibited at the  fair    ground   last   month.     Large  crowds came to the town to witness  an   exhibition which will   help   to  mark another step in the progress of  civilization  from .every  side.    The  signs  are  coming  that   the   days,  of the   horse's   usefulness   are   fast  passing away.   Sir David Solomon  appeared   in   a   horseless  carriage,  known  as  a   "vis-a-vis."     It was  covered with morocco with a removable hood.    The motor  was behind,  the driver sat on the back seat steering and governing being effected by  means of a handle bar as on a bicycle.  This regulated the speed,   etc.    Another handle was used to back it.  On a stop the carriage was stationary  yet  the motor continued   to work.  The motor is �� of h.p..   It can travel  on a good road at 20 miles per hour,  and average 12.    It carries enough  benzine to run it 203 miles.   It weighs  1,200 pounds on the road.    Another  much larger carriage was exhibited  to carry a heavy load at a slower  speed, also a barouche with a  petroleum motor on small wheels in front.  Great interest was taken in the tricycles, of which several were exhibited.  One worked with a petroleum motor  ignited   by  an   electric   spark.    It  weighed   90  pounds,   and behaved  successfully.     It   is  regulated    by  handles, the pedals being necessary  for starting, but while in motion they  are not used.    A speed of 30 miles an  hour  can  be   maintained   on  good  roads.   Another was exhibited of �� of  one h p.   It ran by mineral naphtha.  It alsp made good time,  but was not  S.S. "ALBERTA."

A youcg type-writer (says the  Syracuse Post] had just, been hired  by a prominent lawyer. She had  never done regular work before, and  was,somewhat nervous.

''What's the  matter ?" asked the lawyer. ' 'Would  you mind saying tliat all over  again?" the" girl asked, with eyes  Mi of tears. "Why?" "I forgot  to put any paper'in the machine!"

"It was' years ago,"  1 he says, "when the Kendals were  on,a provincial tour. I had gone be:  hind the -scenes to see one of the  actors,', and by accident' I walked  right into Mrs. Kendal's room. That'  good, lady was.about to-begin her  toilet. She. shrieked : 'Go "away!  Go away !' I turned, shut my eyes  tight, bowed, and said: 'Madam, I  need no persuasion.' And to this day  I have never been able to tell which'  she resented the more���my intrusion  or my remark."  . Charlotte Cushman was oiice filling  an engagement at the opera-house in  .Belmorc. A man in the gallery  created such a disturbance "'that it  seriously impeded the progress pf the  play, and finally brought* it to a  stand-still. Immediately the audience, furious with anger, cried:  "Throw huh over! Throw him  .over !" ' .Miss Cushman stepped to the  edge of the footlights, and, in a sweet  and gentle voice, exclaimed: "No,  I beg of you, dear friends, don't throw  him over. Kill him ^\yhere- he'js !]'.,  Tii is story has been "told pf'a, good-  many other actresses beside Charlotte Cushman. But we will let it go  at that ,      '        '  During the Chilean War, Americans were very badly treated, and  "Fighting Bob-" Evans did not like  it. ' All classes down there use tremendous quantities of garlic, and the  result is unpleasant, for your nose is  offended constantly, even in the  street. One��� night a boat was sent  ashore from Captain Evans'ship, and,  believing it safe, the sailors who had  acted as oarsmen lefr. it on the beach  for a few minute's while thev went to  slake tiieir thirst. Upon their return  they discovered that a party of the  Chileans had loaded it witli stones.  "Fightine*-Bob " was fighting mad  when he heard of it next day,and was.  asked what he was going to do about  it. "Do about it?" returned the  sailor; "why, I'm going to turn my  men i.ito traveling arsenals, and if  the thing ever happens again, or if  our flag is again insulted, I'll make  hell smell of garlic!"  ft D.
