Aug. 10.--A  ;rea,l deal of assessment and .development work is going' on in  fthe Windermere district at the  present time.,- On, Toby rcreek  find',' its', tributaries .- numerous  [prospectors are doing their an-  lu rial, assessments. ,"0"n the north'  [fork of Toby some development  lis being prosecuted on the Del-  Iphine.' and also, on the B. C.  [group owned by ,Mr.H. B. , Foster: while on Boulder creek i and  [the neighboring gulches much  J.vork is being, carried on." On  rhe Mary G.. one of the Sitting.  jBiill group, which is under bond  (to R-. R. Bruce of Nelson, two  [feet of shipping ore is being  bpeued up. This ore carries a  [nigh percentage of grey copper  land some ruby silver, .and will  (average over K'O'ozs. in silver  [and 1)0 per cent lead.  North of the Mary G. with the  (Alice intervening, is tho Silver  I Thread group, consisting of the  [Silver Thread. Dividend and  [Paying Teller. This property  [is owned by Messrs. Hauph Taylor and Mather, was. under bond  [to Messrs. Collett, Staubird and  f Roborson, and has recently been  acquired by them in connection  | with Mr. Robert Mulford of Now  I York.  Ten men  are  at  work   under  |\Mr. Norman'  Sutherland   of  the  Homestake.   mine   Black   Hills.  Land   are   pushing   development  work vigorously.  . The properly   is  showing  up  well  witli  some  twelve  feet of  lean   ore  averaging  $u7t.00   all  'values.  Across the gulch on the  fisweepstake group belonging to  j ihe same parties, men are doing  assessment work. This ledge is  I.showing very well and the ore  ^carries considerable gray copper  (mixed with; the galena; in fact,  this property bids fair to be a  [mine of no small size.  A trail has, been   built   over  J from  Law's creek; to  the'/ Red  [Line group at the head  of Mao-  M.onald  creek.     The pi-bperties  in the vicinity of  the . Red  Line  are being prospected and the re-,  [.suits are very flattering.    There  | js every indication that this particular part of  the  mineral   belt  [���will be the scene of great activ~  ['���Sty within the next year.  The   Government   have   been  asked to build a wagon, road up  Macdonald creek, which will be  very necessary for the development of those properties.  The trails in this district are  in bad condition and need attention. It is expected though that  snow will shortly come to the  aid of the Government and coyer  up and obliterate the worst spots  on the different trail.-,: it i's devoutly to be hoped that something will --pop". ��  THE ST. MARY'S COUNTRY.  Moyie Mines. ,  Steam was turned on at the  new compressor at the Lake  Shore mine on Thursday last.  The pew machinery is now  beimz" installed in the new mill  at'the St. Eugene mine.  There is great activity in that  vicinity. ' . A large number of  mines,are being developed. The  concentrator-. , compressor and  other'buildings are being pushed  to completion by the company.  DEVELOPING BRITTLE   SILVER.  A    New    Location    on    Wild   Hores  Creek.��� Will Ship(Ore Next  Spring.  Pour men ,are now employed  in the development of the Brittle  SilvQ]L=group of claims, which  are situated on the head waters  of Sheep creek, over the" divide  from Wild Horse creek. This  work is to ascertain if at depth  the ore body gives the same  showing as was apparent on the  surface. Tlie development so  far consists of an open cut of 15  feet in length, from which a tunnel will be drove to crosscut'the  the ledge at a depth pi" fifty feet.  On. the surface the lead was  stripped across'.the vein" for'"six  feet, and the indications are that"  it is fully twenty feet wide. At  present it has the appearance of  bejng a true fissure, but this cannot be'determined until the ledge  is crosscut and both walls shown  up. It is tlie intention to rind out  what there is in it, and as speedily as possible put the property  on a shipping basis: in fact, the  ore, now being taken out is of ex-'  cellent quality, but no ore is being taken out except such as is  encountered in tho course of development. J. W. Arthur of  Spokane is largely interested in  the proposition, and he is of the  opinion that' ore for shipment  can be taken out much easier  than is usual on properties which  show so little development. Mr.  Arthur further states that in  shipping, the ore will have to  come, down Wild Horse creek  and pass through Fort  Steele.  John Bull Group.  Mr. Harry Bradford came  down from the John Bull group  of claims where he has been engaged in developing these properties. Mr. Bradford says that a  funnel has been run for a distance of ."i feet on the ledge  which lias a width of nearly  eight feet. The ore is a copper  pyrites averaging 1:5 per cent  copper. '2\ ounces in silver, and  $.r>.60 in gold. Mr. Bradford returned, to the mines on Thursday.        '    On the Dupont Group.  Eight men are at work on the  Dupont group of mines on Boulder creek. A pack train loaded  with supplies, went up on Monday. .'". ,    '.' ."'',;.���.,     ,'  -���   At Canal Flat.  Prospectors are beginning to  go into the upper Kootenay country beyond Canal Plat. Messrs.  Bullman and Hardy started out  a few days ago.  D Granger of Canal Plat lias  made some, locations on Finley  creek, some of which are most  promising. On the surface the  ore .is-a high grade.  A Promising- Field for the Energetic  "���-    " ������  -.t rospector.  ,  ��� Tin-; Puosi'iot.TOn has frequently called attention , to the  St, Mary's country as being a  most, promising field for the  prospector and. miner. Within  the past few months a number of  high grade copper leads have  been uncovered, which has simulated research in that direction,  and- now the ' prospectors are  penetrating the mountains, in a  few months the St. Mary's country will be as familiar as Wild  Horse.  One of the most recent discoveries mentioned are the locations  made by Chris. Kolle arid^T. p.  Baker oi" Kalispell. 'They 'are  the owners of three claims, the  Montana'. Uncle' Sam and Copper Union. These claims are  situated about a mile north of  St-. Mary's Jake, south of ' the  Petty group. The development  work consists of <>_ feet of tunnel in high grade copper ore  with values of '68 per-cent copper, $4.40" in gold, and two ozs.  in silver. There, are' several  other openings' on the property  showing the ledge to be from six  to twelve feet in Avidth .,��� The development of the property will  be continued.  The   New   Tunnel   on   the   Golden  1   ' i Fleece.  Work on the Golden Fleece recently bonded to E. C. Egan- is  now going on. - The new tunnel  which is to prospect the mine at  a depth of 400 feet, is'now in :55  feet, and it is,in, this tunnel that  the recent' strike of rich ore  was ; made. The contract for  doing,the work has been-, let to  W. S. Forsyth of Port Steele.  * J_^_   \     On the St. Mary's River.  Last week Thio Pkospkctou  made mention of a strike having  been made on a claim in the upper St. Mary's country. It is  now learned that the strike was  made on a claim owned' by Geo.  Urqhuart and others, who have  been developing tlie property for  the past three years. It is reported that there is ten feet' of  solid copper ore opened up on  the claim by means of a 'tunnel  and cross cut.  confluence wiih Wild Horse  creek, has mad��>an important  strike in ihe workings of the  property, of ore which gave a  value of $7:>.00 to the ton. He  says the pay streak is 14 inches  in width. About >500 feet above  the outcrop the same character  of ore has ' been encountered,  which will give even better values. It i> the intention of the  owners to further..develop the  property.  Empire Bonded.  It is learned that the Empire  claim on Bull river has been  bonded by the owners��� to Chas.  Estmere of Kimberley. The  price wa.-�� not made known. The  Empire is a well known property  and has been  favorably  spoken  of." _         '  Mining Notes.  M}\ Kellogg, superintendent  of, the , North Star group of  mines, has made an examination  of the Estella group of claims,  which are, situated ' on Tracy  creek. Mr. Neil MacleodCurran  has an option on the property,  which he holds in the interest of  eastern Canadian capitalist.  C. D. Porter," representing the  Kansas City Refining &' Smelting Company,'was in the city,,on  Wednesday. Mr., Porter is interested in mining' property on  Perry creek, and on the North  Star mountain, and will pay them  a visit before lii.s'return.  N. A. Wallmger spent a couple  of days at the'' property of tlie  Lewis Creek-Milling Company  on Tracy~creek thisrweck.     The  AFTER JOE MARTIN.  Another 'Strike on the John L-  J: H. Conklin was down from  Tracy creek on Monday last. He  says a new strike has been made  on the John L. claim. In sinking the shaft, at a depth of sixty  feet another ore chute was encountered, and the bottom of the  shaft is now in ore. This is the  fourth ore body the shaft has  passed through.  The Bowery Girl.  W. R. Cox the owner of the  Bowery Girl claim, located on  Bear creek, a tributary of Wild  Horse creek, says that on the  claim is one of the largest contact veins, in , the Wild Horse  country. An incline shaft lias  been sunk Infect, and that depth  the ore is showing up splendidly.           Perry Creek.  Joseph Walsh returned from  Perry creek on Saturday, where  he has been doing assessment  work on the Mastodon, a claim  owned by W. R. Ross and others.  This claim is about thirty miles  from Fort Steele, aiid eight miles'  above the old town. Mr. Walsh  returned to Perry creek on Tuesday, where he will do assessment  work on claims 'belonging,to Mr.  E. J. Walsh.   '  Rich Ore on Brewery Creek.  T. C. Armstrong, who; is interested in tho Port Steele mineral  claim on Brewery creek near its  work at'-present consists in stripping,the ledge to determine its  extent. The showing so far is  most encouraging..  ,If all .reports are true, the  Tracy creek district bids fair, to  be one of ��� the most 'important  sections of the Port Steele Mining Division. The derelopment  of the Estella and the rich ore  now being taken out has ��� led to  increased activity on all of tho  properties. - There are probably  more men engaged in actual development than in any other  tributary district.  Hon. George E. Foster, one of  the owners of the Dibble group  of mines, will decide what will  be done with that property upon  his arrival at Fort Steele, lie is  expected here at an early,day.  ' It is learned that R. A. Kimp-  ton was so well pleased with the  -returns from the Delphine ore  shipped some time ago, that he  is making preparations to ship  several car loads this fall.  Assays made this week of ore  from the Brittle Silver group  gave the following returns,  '66.-0 per cent copper. l.r)7.} ozs  silver, and $12.80 in gold.  There are ten men working on  the development of the Tontine  group.        .   -  P. C. Stoess bf Spokane is expected in town on Sunday. He  will go up to examine the properties of the Bull River Mining  & Milling Company on Quartz  Creek. ,  Mr. Clias E. L. Porteous, sec:  relary of the North Star Mining  Co. and Mr. Neil -MacleodCurran, manager, were in town  on Thursday. Messrs.

Ottawa Letter,  l-'i-oiii '(Hii-   Own Cm ii-spiindent  Ottawa. August   I:").���The   political   event   of   thin   week   h;is  been ilie introduction of the res-  solutions granting over  six  and  it half million   dollar.-,  as  aid   in  tho    construction    of   railways.  -The   subsidizing   of  railways  is  no now lliiiifi in Canada but   has  been lhe recognized policy of all  govern ni e n ts for the lasl  twenty  years.   There is this great difference   liowever  that   whereas   in  l,he past the'land or money gra.n1  Juts been a gift.nut and out. without any restrictions or rjuid   pro  Ijjuo. the present series ol   subsidies   is accompanied Villi   conditions of the inos.l, vital   impor-  ituKvi lo   the  country.     One  of  [these conditions is. that from the  M'reiglil charges paid by theCov-  jermnent ' for,   the   carriage   of  I nails,   military  supplies  &c,   a  |-itnn equal lo '6 per cent ,per  an-  lnuin on the amount ���of  the  sub-  Isidy is to be credited to thecoun-  'ry.   Inasmuch iis $.l.'6T)2.e27u was  |Wiid-in 1S07-U8 by  the  Post  Oil-ice department for the carriage  lit' mails on the  railways   il   will  he.'seen at once that   this  rebate  ];ill be a' very real,one.  NO, MOHI0 'MONOPOLY.     ,  Another condition attached to  he granting of these subsidies  stihal the assisted, lines shall  L-rant running ,powers lo other  [o'mpani'es when and where the  [ceasion may arrive. The first  rime', such a proviso was at-  lached to any subsidy in Canada  Iras', in the'case of.-the Crow's  .est, Pass Railway and the iiin-  fiense advantage to the country  (herefrom has already been fully  Wiipnstratecl. It simply means  [.nit where such it ��� regulation -is  fi force a monopoly is impossible  [nd 1 his,greab desideratum is yet  In-}her'secured by the additional  Jonditiou attaching to some of  Ihe subsidies thai,,no amalgamation with other railways'shall be  lerm'itted except by permission  If the Government: while lastly,  Ind perhaps most important pi"  111. the.Government will secure  jbsolutc control over tho rates  liat may be charged by these  fided lines.   .  To a country that has been-so  !>ng under the heel  of  railway  jionopolies the operation of such  legalations as these, will indeed  [e cmniancipalion from a  bond-  go which has been crippling dc-  lelopnieni and hindering natural  lrogress far more than all'other  Id verse    conditions     combined.  |,veil a superficial   consideration  ���ill'show that they are sufficient  lo remove the country of litis in-  Jubus, providing they are vigor-  lusly  and   impartially   applied.  1-everal   of  the  railways fo   be  jeneiited are so .located that, they.  |'ill eventually fotun sections  of  SISCONl> TKA VSOOJS'TI NICNTA I,  J .INK.  Kor when the Rainy river rail-  r-a-y, the extension of the Great  Northern .to Prince Albert and  [ho new line from   Eduioiiloii   to-  ;ards the Vellow Head Pass and  [he Pacific coast are completed,  [here will be by land and water,  .ontinuous transportation   facilities during the season  of  navigation from lhe  wheal   Holds of  [he far west to  the  ocean  ports  In the east.    Over-this  line  the  Lovernineiit   will  exercise  con-  iroL of the rates." and   inasmuch  Is competing lines  will  not  be  kblO'to secure business at higher  lites the  Canadian   Pacific  will  fiivo lo modify its charges also,  jiich a change  in  the., existing  loncli.fcions-wi.il be1 of a value  to  lie '.western' farmer .aiid the east-  1 j-n manufacturer, and generally  io the entire Dominion, far in ex-  iess of the-few, millions that the  jioyernmenf   now ..proposes   to  |;rant hi railway subsidies.;  a. uw^iiJi iNnKi'i-:N.ni-',Ncio.  Some   little    amusement   has  |e'en- caused  hi political circles  ere by a   hysterical .-article  in  |.i e Montreal|;^ta,r tlw other day;  in    which    lhe    Government     is  chiirgeo with hleedin�� the  conn  try to death, the inducing  cause  of this   particular  attack  being  the    announcement     respecting  Ihe railway subsidies.   The wild-  ness  of  the   language   lined    is  worthy of the most  exlravajjant  mood "of Sir Charles Tii]jper himself, for the projiosal   is  characterized'    as,      '-the     action    of  desperate     gamblers     and    as',  the    greatest      crime     of     the  century".    The    Montreal ..Star  ;s     without     doubt     the    most  erratic   journalistic   acrobat    in  Canada   today.      Between  elections "it  is   picturesquely   independent,���in theory.���but  when  a'campaign approaches ������outher-  ods Herod'., in its  contatic  support of the  Conservative  party.  Less than three months ago the  Star notified  all   its-correspondents   by   confidential  circulars  that it was absolutely independent in politics, and that il was a  misiake to\suppose that   it  was  a ,Conservative   paper,   and' requesting them ,to  bear  this   in  mind  when   writing   their   despatches.'   Evidently   a  copy  of  this ���  communication    was    not  handed to the  editorial  writers,  if it was they attached   no  more  importance to it than the general'public attaches lo the  papers  alleged ^independence.     Be  thai  as it may, the Star's present extravagant criticism of the Liber-  al policy of reasonable  and  rational encouragement of national  development   is  in   absurd 'contrast to its uncompromising and  unconditional support of the late  Government   during    the'  campaign   of   1S96,   when,    having  iiiearly doubled both . the  annual  expenditure    and    tlie   national  debt during its term of office,   il  promised public works and general expenditure in every., direction to an  extent  which- would  llave swallowed up, many  times  'the number of millions that this  Government lias spent.__ -  ,  mcATiT'oF Tiiis" spkak'kk.  The sudden and.' unexpected  death of Sir James Edgar, speaker .of, the House of Commons ,of  Canada, created a profound sensation at tlie Capital when it became known on,, Monday night.  Whiie the end was unexpected.  it was known when "the Speaker  left Ottawa two weeks ago that  he Avas a very sick man, in fact  he had not been in robust health  for two or three'years, still it  had been hoped ' that complete  rest and life best medical skill  that the country could afford  would restore him at least to  comparative health.  Deceased, who was not an old  man,���for he had not completed  his third score.���had always been  an ardent politician.  His first appearance  as   a    candidate   was  when al the age of thirty he unsuccessfully eonlesledMonck for  the Local Legislature, though he  won the  seat  for  the    Federal  House the following year.      tdo  did not sit  long  however being-  defeated by a  narrow  majorify  af the general elections two years  later,   not   returning   to  Parliament until IS&-I, when he  secured  a   seat  in  a bye-election   in  Western  Ontario,   the constituency  which   has   returned   him  each general election since.    He  has always been a strong  party  man and has never  spared  himself in the work which an active  political life necessarily entailed.  His     unanimous'    election      as  Speaker when the  new   Parliament met in August  lS9(i  was  a  tribute to his general popularity:  his courteous and impartial conduct in that responsible position  during the last  throe  years  increased the estimation in   which  he was held by Parliament,   and  adds poignancy, to the regret, his  de'atlt.lias otcasioncd.���',.  the last 'mv var-..

Such a representative body   has  a peculiar right   -'to express  its  sympathy with 1he efforts of Her  Majesty's Imperial authorities to  obtain for  the  subjects  of  Her  Majesty who have taken up their  abode  in   the   Transvaal.   Such  measure of justice   and   political  recognition as may be found necessary     to     secure     them     in  the full possession of equal rights  and liberties*'. ���  -       "  ulllvan Diamond Drills  31ost, accurate and   most  economical   prospecting  drills   made.
