That the country about Lewis  snid Tracy-creeks  is  lo  assume  considerable  importance' ,iu   the  juear future i.s attested by the ore  ���bodies which are being uncovered,   and    the    persistent' work  -which is being done on  the  various"  claims.

Chickamun. Chicamun,  and Chickamon. The latter, it is  decided is correct. It was determined to ascertain how to  spell it, and John H. Fink sent to  Spokane and the word was found  in a Chinook dictionary. Chickamon has been adopted by the  mining company using that  name.   ��  EMERALD GROTJP BONDED.  E.

Rich Strike on the Defender.  A strike of rich ore on the Defender group of mines is reported thjis week.     The group 'consisting of the Defender', and Tip  Top on Wasa, crook were recently located by E. Ford., Mr. Ford  says   the   discovery  was   made  while running an open  cut,   the  vein' being about four feet" wide  with a  pay  chute   two  feet   in  width.   -Thcore is  galena,   and  carries-high values.  Galena has been found everywhere in that vicinity, but in  most instances' it has been associated with copper and as "development progressed the galena  practically disappears. Iiv this  instance the ore is solid and  gives every appearance of being  permanent. - .       ,  Chickamon Stone.  The work on the Chickamon  Stone is going right ahead. The  rlevelopment is showing up larg-  ���r bodies of ore. Tlie ore so far  \niued 'for shipment has been  taken out entirely in the course  of development.' The force is  being increased'as fast as possible. 'The road is now nearly  iompleled to the mine when  (.���hip'menis will commence.  On the Brittle Silver. ,  The owner's of'the Brittle Silver, 'group have commenced work  in earnest. . "While the property  was but recently located, the  owncrs'are so well pleased with  its; appearance that t-hey will go'  on with development to ascertain  its Value.

Egan Bonds the Half Interest  of R.  Rogers for $10,000.  ,  E. C. Egan of, Winnipeg'is becoming largely interested in the  mining   development    of    East  Kootenay, he has secured sever-,  al valuable claims and is engag-,  ed in developing them'. Mr. Egiui  has great faith ' in   the  mineral  resources of the district.    l_t was  he   who' first  brought   tlje   P.ig  Chief  prominently    before    the  public, and  his   recent, bonding  of the Golden Fleece and  Stanley in the, Tracy  creek  district  has emphasized still further  his  belief in East  Kootenay 'mines.  His  latest  acquisition,   or   at  least    the    most ' recent    made  known, i.s the bonding for ��10.-  000, of the one-half interest owned by R. Rogers in three claims  known as the Emeral'd group,'on  the north fork of Boulder creek,  adjoining the Big  Chief group.  The ore is  similar  in  all  respects to that found on  the/ surface of the Big Chief;' it carries  free gold which i.s discernable in  the rock*.    These claim's are  recent locations, 'having been' recorded in May last.     The  other  half interest  is  owned  by   Mr.  Egan and William Carlin.  ander of Kaslo, and hi.v associates.

It is reported that a  company  working  a  group  of claims on  the west fork of the. St.   Mary's  river- are engaged in working a  monster lead said to be fifty feet  wide Carrying  ten  feet of solid  cop]>er   ore   with    considerable  galena shot through' the balance  of the lead.

This is an error: the property  was originally bonded to Collett.  _Starbird and Roberson for ��40,-  000, of which ��r>,000 has been  paid, aiid by them rebonded., to  Mr. Mulford on behalf of a Wall  street syndicate for an amount  which was not made known.

There is  a  general   belief  in  town that there  will   be   racing  events other than  that between  Easter-Lily and  Homely  Hank  at Cranbrook'on the 30th.      tt is  said that owners of other horses'  are desirous of again   trying  issue   with "the   racers   of    Fort)  Steele and Cranbrook-.

Fort   Steele   will  make a creditable exhibit.' '  Reports from the different  mining sections are to the effect  thatlhero is an unusual'amount  of development work being done.  En fact, never in tho history of  the district has there been such  activity.    ,  Messrs. Violet, 'Reynolds and  Greeley went up to the Bill Nye  claim on one of the branches of  Wild Horse, taking a pack nouttit  with'fhem. They will build a  cabin and make preparations to  develop the properly thoroughly  during the coming winter. The  Bill Nye is a claim well spoken  of.  Collett it Starbird who have  a bond on the Silver Thread  group of mines near Windermere  will commence at once the development of the property.  Since January 1st there has  been 117!) now mineral locations  recorded, and 400 records of assessment in lhe office of the gold  commissioner. This is a pretty-  good showing for a district which  thc Winnipeg Free Press said  was not half prospected.  Hon. George E.

Stolen'From Molsons  Bank, Winnipeg,   Last 'Fall Recovered.���Kan  "'   Named Anderson -Under Arrest.'  (Sptt-iul tri Tin: I'liosi'Lirroii.;  The ��01'.000 stolen from the  Molson's, Bank, Winnipeg, ' between the SHlli of September and  the 4th of October, last year,  have been recovered, and ' John  W._Anderson, who was employed as junior clerk in'the bank af  the time, is lying in the provincial jail charged with having  committed the robbery.  Anderson -was -caught   by   a  man .named Davis, a young Canadian private detective. He came  to Winnipeg in March . last, and  secured employment as clerk'  in  Jerry  Robinsons. & .Co.'s- dry  goods store.    lie located Anderson's lodgings and secured lodgings in the same  place and 'became friendly with, Anderson, in  whom his suspicions had in some  way become  centered.     Anderson was working  with   the  Mc-  Cleary Manufacturing company.  Anderson went on Sunday evening to tho -place  where he  had  arm each broken in two places  and Pat Redmond was badly cut  up. It seems that before going  to dinner several shots were  fired in the bottom of the shaft,  the report from which was distinctly ' heard." ''After dinner  Henrietta < and Redmond went  down the shaft to resume work  noticing one hole which >had apparently shot without breaking  rock they concluded to drill it  deeper when an explosion look  place, with,the result mentioned.  The full extent of "Henrietta's injuries-were-not ascertained, as it  is possible��lie may be injured internally. He was taken to Kimberley a distance of 24- miles on  a stretcher and Dr. King of  Cranbrook was called. Redmond  was not badly hurt. Superintendent Houghton did everything in his power for the sufferers.', Both men were old miner's  but supposing the hole had shot  did not test it as is'customary.  One theory advanced by an old  minor is that one of tho shots  blow the collar and primer from  Lhe other and the report was the  same as,though the shot had  gone off although under such  circumstances , the report, is  sharper than ordinary.  each other.

From our  Own Concsjioiiili-nt  Ottawa,    Aug.���The   Alaskan  boundary dispute has loonier! up  large on'the political horizon this  week owing to the .somewhat-impassioned speech ol" Sir Charles  Tupper in the,House- on   Saturday and the dignified and   patriotic comments oi'--1he Premier in  reply.    The occasion was the announcement made in that  morning's papers of a delay in the reassembling   oi   the  Joint   High  Commission, owing to Hie failure  Jo arrive at the settlement of ihe  Alaskan boundary question.'     It  will be  remeiiibored  thai   when  the adjournment  was made  last  ''February it, was   inti matted,���although cerlain prominentoppos  Jtionists professed to doubt it,���  ,Uia,t the one and  only  cause  of  trouble was lhe  delimitation  of  the Alaskan boundary question.  Ai that time Sir Charles Tupper  thought it necessary lo severely  criticise the policy of the Britsh  Commissioners,   even   his- long  experience   in diplomacy  failed  to teach him  that".  Avith  only a  very  partial   knoAvledge  of'the  exact conditions.  1      lv   WAS KISIvY  AVOKK.  offering criticism thereon. But  with the fuller knowledge Avhich  he now possesses he readily appreciates, the mistake Avhich he  made, and with a candor that  does him credit he frankly admits, that his censure Avas uncalled for,1 and his attitude a mistaken one. and that'the policy ot  th��Jt Government was Avorthy of  the' unanimous endorsation -oi'  the country., and should iioav receive his full 'support. ��� Having  thus satisfactorily prerjared the  way, tlie Opposition leader,, proceeded to urge more' aggressive  action on. the part of Canada,  first by  providing  immediately  ,',��i'pr the  construction  of  a  light  ' railway     from     the     seaboard  1 through-all Canadian ��� territory  to DaAVSomCity, and' second by  excluding all but British subjects  from holding territory or. Avork-  mg claims in the  Yukon.     The  , venerable baronet spoke Avith  considerable warmth bf apparent  inertia of the Imperial GoA'ern-,  nieut.'and condemned in some-,  what strong terms Avhat ho Avas  pleased to,term its laissez i'aire  policy, adding'that had Great  Britain  been, dealing  Avith   any.  r other couuti'y than the United  Stales she avouIc! not hare been  half so lenient.  PA-  for showing some impatience at  the treatment she i.s receiving,  it is satisfactory to rr-alizc thai  there is coiiipJrile unanimity ���in  the country, and that the people  have absolute confidence in the  statesmanship and ability of their  representatives. The foremost  cause for irritation rests in the  fact that, time i.s the'imporlant  feature in the situalion. - The  Americans may be Avell satislied  to leave things as��1 hey are. for  while all means of trade communication with the Yukon lie,  Avholly or in pari. IhroiighAmeri-  cau territory, the coast cities of  the Slates are securing the vast  bulk of the trade. The question  of principle unhappily appears  to have Iii tie or no weight; it is  a mailer of expediency, -every  'time'with tliom. If Canada today possessed a railway through  her own'territory into the heart  of the gold .country by Avhich  equal facilties could be' given to  her merchants tO( supply the  commercial needs of that country with their American competitors, the Dominion would  poss-  trary to its own intention up to  within u day or two of lhe debate  which ended in its rejection. The  method adopled was unsatisfactory from e\'ery point, for tIio��  amendment proposed by Sir Mackenzie Uowell, did not A'enture  lo impugn the principle of the  measure bin attacked upon an  unimporlantsideissue,���the minor question of its constitutionality. Even in the ('ominous the  opposition was very mild and  half hearlod, and Opposition  journals of the more independent type agreed that the bill was  reasonable and fair.  The fact appears to be that a  majority of the Senators, actuated by the childish desire to  show the Government that they  were uol scared by the proposal  tojiinit their powers, and careless, as usual, of the public weaj.  rejected a necessary and inevitable piece of legislation in a  spirit of irresponsible bra\-ado.  Of course the Government has  been greatly strengthened by  this action in its contention, that  "the present constitution of the'  ess a'trump'card that could be; Senate, i.s inconsistent Avith the  relied on to win the trick,���but I Federal principle in r-our system  that advantage'has been  denied I of government and  is  in  other  Sullivan Diamond Drills  prospect-  Most  accurate  and   most  economical  inn   drills   made.

Replying to the leader  of  the  ,   Opposition Sir  Wilfrid   Lauricr  spoke Avith extreme moderation,  , ji,nd while admitting that Canada  had very great excuse for irritation af the attitude of the ���Washington authorities, he urged thai  iu view of the  unassailable   justice of  our   position   we  should  have, patience yet a little longer.  There   were   three    Avays.    ihe  .Prime Minister pointed out.   by  which      international      disputes  might be settled:���by  compromise, by arbitration', and by an appeal to arms.    The lirst of tho.->o  would  appear   lo   be   about   exhausted, for   fhe  United   States  sippeared determined to concede  nothing.    The idea of  war  Avas  out the question and consequently arbitration alone remained.  It  is certainly not encouraging  to  jiear  from   the   chief   Canadian  ���Commissioner, who has taken an  optimistic vioAV of the  situation  all along, the statement that, '"at  this moment, in 1he last days  of  the'inonth of duly,  the   question  is not perhaps any more' ad van c.-  ��d than it.was iii the last days of  "January";   EAren Avhile admitting  this however. Sir  Wilfrid .adds.:  -M   do   not   give   up    hope������  I will, not' believe,   because   it  would be too painful   to   believe  for a'-iuoment,   that. Ave  cannot  .settle this  question   by   arbitration."'   ,' ��� -    . .     ,. .

The  outrageous statement of  Mr.   Taylor   the    Conseiwative  Whip, that Sir  Wilfrid, Lauricr  had   accepted, a  bribe, from    a  Avholesale house in   this  city  in  .return for special favors ��'m  the  matter of Government contracts,  has had a beneficial effect Avhich  Avas ncCcontcinplated'or intended by that 'gentleman  Avhen   he  uttered thc slander: it has given  rise',  to  considerable  discussion  upon the question of the remuneration .which the country should  pay its Ministers.    The demands  upon the financial  resources of  our public men areyA'ery ^acting,   and  the   majority   of   the  Ministers of   the   Crown,    both  Federal    and   Provincial,     and  without regard to  party,   make  very large  pecuniary   sacrifices  when they give up their  private  business to enter thc  service  of  the country.    A man's income is  not to be valued at its actual cash  amount but Avith ��� regard  to   his  necessary and  legitimate expenditure, for if is an axiom, requiring no  proof,   that  under  some  conditions $1,DUO avouIcI   place  a  man   in  al'llueuce,   Avhile   under  different circumstances he Avould  be poor Avith $10,000. A proposal  to make a substantial increase in  lhe salary of Ihe first PrimeMin-  isl'er.' is being warmly   endorsed  on all sirles.   for   it   is   generally  recognized that a salary of $S.000  a year is not only out ot' proportion lo Avhat is paid for  services  of far less A'alue to the   country,  by big' financial and  commercial  corporations  lo   their   principal  oflicers all   over   the   Dominion,  but il i.s miserably inadequate  to  the   actual   legitimate   demands  upon it.    It is no matter of   surprise that   the  Premier  has   refused to sanction the proposal to  present him wilh a large sum of  money lo   augment   his   pro.sent  income, for it would be scarcely  possible lo carry such a   project  through   without   the   development of conditions which   might  occasion.- criticism.      Tlie   very  fact that our public men; are  so  sensitive of  their  honor-should  give  increased 'impetus   to   any  proposal that would .place  them  in a position that  would'' make  such.a suggestion  unnecessary.  ,   TIfKV   ARE   INCOUliK.'IBUO.

Another big strike has been  made in the Payne mine, lho  famous Sloean producer.  B. C.

The ore shipments from the  Sloean from January 1st to July  ^ihh amounted to lfi,!'-"! tons.  "Thirty-seven mines were included among ��the shippers, the  Payne taking the lead with ."i.^TI  tons., The smallest shipment  being one of three Ions from the  Fidelity.  ."  Every Man a Sandow.  There is one position in which  even the weakest person may  defy successfully the efforts of a  Hercules, if ,the tips of the. two  index lingers be pressed tightly  together no man, no matter how  strong, will be able to pull thein  -apart, provided that the pull i.s  applied gradually^ and there  i.s no  jerk".       There   have/been  -many attempts to explain why  with the fingers in this position  .so much force can be resisted,  but.'none of the explanation has  been satisfactory. Theories of  weighl, balance, and strain have  all been, advanced'; in A'siin. but  the fact remains and can,be easily demonstrated. Care must be.'  ���taken that the pullmust be gentle  at first and without any-jerking.  Later enormous power may be'  applied without pulling the tips  of the fingers apart.  grown on a large scale, and an  extraordinary increase in prices  has resulted.  ' The  Rambler.  In  my  rambles   through   the  'suburbs last Sunday  my  attention was attracted to a window-  less building perched upon a hill  near'the river.    My first impression was that it must  be  either  *-an ice house or a stable..-   Upon  '"making  inquiries  I, ascertained  that it was the Masonic temple.  ! ,In close proximity to the temple  there.was   a   shed   filled   with  empty bottles,   and  near 'by   a  graveyard.     I wondered ' if  my  '   informant had not made  a  mis-  fake,   and  if   the  building  was  not the' temple of Bacchus or the  lodge, room  of  the   Benevolent  ��� Protective Order of'Elks.  The chief engineer of thc  'water works has much to answer  for. At any old time during the  day the whistle will be sounded,  and this awakens memories of  the days that are hot,of the days  when argosies freighted - with  wealth from far Cathay, (T am  assuming the poet's license,  therefore, for Cathay read Jen-  > nings), were 'brought to our  shores. 1 wander to the river  bank* no vessel is in sight, and T  am told that'tho whistle is blown  to notify the people- when the  engineer's tank is full.  There are some things thai.  Fort Steele needs, as one may  see who will walk about the (own  and notice the lack of paint on  so many buildings, and the wilful lack of fences, which should  surround fhe many really pretty  residences. This lack of paint  gives to the town an appearance  of uncertainty, as if the owners  expected at any time to pull up  stakes and depart for now fields.  A little expense on the lines suggested would make Fort, Sfeele  the prettiest town in  Kootenay.  The Boards oi-Trade   Convention   at  Rossland Accomplishes Much  Work.  J. A. Harvey re-turned Sunday  from aiteiidaiK-o at  the  meeting  of the boards of trade of   Kootenay.'   In speaking of  the   meeting he said:*   "it   was   thy  most  harmonious  gathering    I    have  ever attended.   Soon as the meeting convened they got  down  lo  business at once:'it was bu.-Sine.ss  from start to finish.   ' The  subjects were ably   handled,   and  a  large amount  of  work   was  accomplished.     Most of  the' subjects in which the Kootenays are  interested was gone over.     The  eight-hour        law,       the      lead  smelting    question,   (upon   this  subject 0. O. Buchanan of Kaslo  and' 'Mr.   Aldrich of, the   Trail  smelter, gave a vast  amount  of  interesting   information).      The  subject of trails and roads in the  various districts  was thorougly'  discussed:   mail   service,'   redistribution, etc.. in fact every subject  in   which   the   Kootenays,  Yale and Cariboo were interested, received  attention.      "I be-  lieve"   continued 'Mr.   Harvey,  ���'that much good will be accomplished by these meetings,  which  will be held   annually.     It ,will  show our legislators that we are  i ^ i.  in earnest in demanding the  rights, which are due us, commensurate with the amount received by the Government from  the interior'".  Mr. Harvey was on all of the  committees. He did excellent  work in the convention by .showing up the needs of East Kootenay, and his faithful work in the  committees will be of much service to the district -J ir$. was I  unfortunate that, there were no j  representatives at. the convention from Fernie, Cranbrook' or  Golden.
