A force of ten men is cm-  I'loyed in development.

The  shipper, and no doubt exists as  to the Dupont being in the same  class.  [n Victoria gulch there are  several claims of "merit which  1will swell the list.  TliACY  CUEKK.  On Tracy  creek  there  are  a  number' of ' claims  upon   which  ore is ready to be shipped   now,  the  St.   Lawrence  and   Golden  Fleece.,the property of the Tracy  Creek  Mining  Co.;   the   Minnie  M., Tiger and the'Estella group.  This  latter .group   consists _ of  eight  ,claims.      The   principal  work has been done on the Rover.     The   shaft   is   now   down  eighty feet in solid ore.    At,that  level the vein is.estimated to  be  eight feet 'wide. * although   it  is1  known to be seven  feet.     The  Estella has,.a'10u"-foot tunnel run  on the lead showing an ore chute  all of the, way.     Tho  width  of  the'lead is four and a -half feet,  with a continuous pay streak two  and a'half feet wide.    , The  low-  est assay from this" property   is  $40,   the  highest ��600 per  ton.  A .conservative  estimate  places  the amount of ore  on, the  dump  as-follows: , .Shipping .ore,   200.  tons: concentrating ore, 300 tons.  All of the claims have good surface ���' showings,    although    the  work has  been  confined  principally to, the Rover, and Estella.  There are claims on Lewis and  Wasa creeks, which require but  very littleSvork to place thenion  an independent basis.      '      !    '  T Tracy Creek.  C. L, Knox, manager,of the  Tracy, Creek .Mining Company,  paid a visit to Tracy Creek on  Saturday last, returning on Monday. rMr.' Knox expressed himself ,much pleased with the progress made in the work since his  last visit. He said we have now  i)J) feet of development work.- We  aro sinking on the hanging wall,  and it is the intention to crosscut every 50 feet.< Tho ledge is  SO feet Avide but we have not yet  ascertained the width of the pav  chute. Tho working force is at  present necessarily small, but it  will be increased as fast as they  can be worked to advantage.  Mr. Knox left, on Wednesday  for Now York taking' with him  samples of ore from the mine.  fU'crage  of   21!   assays  recently  Inade gave a result'of ?-l('),!i;j.por  [ion.     The  vein on this group is  [niceablc on the siu'l'aco for :!000  Leu I.  It' Tho   Dibble  group  is   a   well  fiiown property located in   Lost  ���reek.    This  group  consists of  ifclevcn  claims,   and   has   had   a  Jarge amount of money expond-  [ncl in its development. Three or  [four years ago a  trial   shipment  [>f three tons was made I'rom this  [property. The cost of getting  l;lie shipment'to the river'was  T'.I'iO a ton, besides steamboat and  Railway transportation and treatment charges, still with the  en-  irmous expense the returns  Knowed a not  profit  of  &KM   to  I, he ton.

The Clara, an extension of the  Carbonate, is a promising claiin,  and    has   an .excellent   showing  To Push Work on the Sullivan.  . F. ' P. Hogan oi Spokane,  president of the Sullivan Croup  Minintr Co., arrived in town on  Monday -accompanied by J.  Houi>hton, who will have charge  of the mine working*. Mr. Hogan' atao brought in with him  five additional men to add to the  working force. ' The company is  now working three shifts and  paying ^I.TiO per day to their  miners. The work from this on  will be pushed and the force increased with development.  '���  The new compressor will be  installed probably by Uctob-'  w I si. ��� ,   The Selkirk Mother Lode Co.  E. H.

Mr. Thurston liiinself was reluctant about giving information but it was ascertained from  different sources that the Selkirk- Mother Lode Company represented by Mr.- Thurston ;own  what .are known as the, Petty  properties, :-J4 in number. .They  are copper claims" an immense  amount of 'work has been done  during the last three years in-'  volving'the expenditure of many  thousands of dollars.

Stewart and Keep returned,   from    a    visit    to    the  Tanglefoot country on   Wednesday last where they had been   to  look at  the   Tontine  group   of  mines in which they are interest  ed.    The group consists of three  claim* over the divideabout-four  miles from the Big Chief.     The  ore is copper  pyrile  in   a   dyke  about "T> feet wide.     The principal working is a r>0  foot' tunnel,  run about   eight  feet  froi'n   the  hanging wall.    The dyke lies between    schist  , and     porphyry.  There is a small vein of the copper ore on'the hanging wall and  other  small   veins   through   the  dyke.    The  owners  are  of  the,  opinion that with further  development   they   will   demonstrate  that they have  a   mine.      Work  will bo continued,' for, a  time at  least, in order  to  determine the  permanency of the   vein*  which  appear  to  grow larger'as depth  is reached.  Ores For Paris Exposition.  t4li'.JF.

The owners of the Nero and  Biscuit claims on Sullivan Bill  are working a small force in the  development of their property.  C M. Keep and H. D.

They returned on Wednesday.  F. W. Robertson the provincial mineralogist was in Golden a  few days ago.  The  order   for  a   compressor  for the La Ice Shore mine at Moyie  was given to the  James  Cooper  Manufacturing Co.  of Montreal.

He  regards   it   a   good  country   for  the.prospector.    In the   vicinity  of Elko   there   is   considerable  prospecting going on.      Several  good     locations    have   recently  been made on  Sheep   Mountain.  an'ce at the Kot'el.Windsor, fully  .'30 members bemg;presont.    The  secretary stated the object of the  meeting, and the president called upon Mr.  Robertson   to' give  in general, the plan   upon which'  he wished the board to act.    Mr.  Robertson stated that the  space  allotted for a mineral exhibit was  one eight that  assigned  lo   the  British Empire, and that it was  desired to  make  a   fine,   exhibit  for British, Columbia,   and   suggested that, the  board  of  trade  lake hold of and  push   the   matter and get in   tho  ores  by  the  lfith of August.      For every dollar expended  by'the  people of  the district  in   making  the  collection,   the   Provincial  Gover-  mont would pay the same amount.  Tho specimens selected  will   be  placed in suitable cases.    A card  giving the mining division, locality, mine, name of doner, together with assay value,  will accompany each sample.   The Government \vill  bo  able   to   care   I'or  -1,000 pounds of ore from the district.  The Board of Trade m co-operation with the boards of trade of  Cranbrook- and Moyie. will attend to the collection of the ores.  A. B.Grace will have charge of the  exhibit from thi.s section until it  is siii]i]>ed.  Mr Robertson has vi*ited the  principal mining sections of the  'Province, and in most cases Ihe  boards of trade have taken  charge of fhe matter: in some  instances individuals have been  delegated to make the collection.  Aline owners and owner* of  claims in fhe district are requested to bring or send in samples  from their properties soon as  possible in order that they may  be labelled and classified before  being" forwarded to Ottawa, from  which point they will be sent to  Paris. i  TELEGRAPH BRIEFLETS.

Ottawa, June 20.���A very important contribution to the information already in possession  of the public anenj the Alaskan  ' boundary dispute was made by  the Premier tlie other day when  he announced that it had been  decided to grant no further charters for railway construction in  the Yukon Territory until an understanding' had been reached on  the boundary question. The desire is to take no action which  would complicate the situation;  and it is the opinion of the Government that the construction of  ' a railway over the Dal ton trail  for instance leading to a town of  considerable  importance at Py-  , ramid harbor on Lynn Canal,  within the disputed territory,  sfciid,the general development of  the surrounding country would  prejudice the case i'or Canada.  While the effect'of such a policy  ' must Jiecessarilybe to retard in  some measure the immediate de"  .velopment of the country there  rid  no question of   the   wisdom  ' of such a. policy The difficulty suggested is " a'" very  real one and has already made  itself seriously felt in the case.  ���     MR.   TMVIM'S iATVLiC PAPER.  ���'Oh that mine adversary had  written a book", exclaimed Job  of old, and the present day modification of the phrase might avoII  be, "Oh that my' political opponent would  start' a  newspaper"'.  The  Liberal    and    independent  papers of the West,  are  having  -lots-of fuii with a little stranger  which   has ��� recently  been  born  ' into   the journalistic  family  in  " Bcgina, fathered by> the Cornier-,  '<��� vative party, and committed   to  the eternal care'of Mr.-' Nicholas  Flood Davin, M.   P.,   with  that  voluble gentleman  as  the chief  editorial writer  in   its  columns.  , The leading role so far adopted,  a|)pears' lo be thatof,'y-'the" friend  of the farmer.": liotajmri-icuJarly  |j. original character,.and one which  will  require  more   than  classic  editorials, and glittering gener-  ' afities to appeal  to the. intelligence and capture  the   vote of  ���Vthe Western electorate. , A high  moral tone  prevades , those editorial columns.     The ethics of  \ infant are beyond reproach   but  when the member for West As-  sinboia.   undertakes    to   lecture  [> western supporters of the' Gov-  l jrnme'nt upon their "humiliating  by leaps and bounds. But even  well informed journals get mixed  up at times as was the case with  the St. James Gazette, London,  (Eng.) a couple of weeks ago,  when it, remarked:-���"The Canadian budget is one more .piece of  evidence that when people will  work and have good natural resources they can prosper even  with injudicious tariffs But the  most interesting thiug about it  is what it tells us of the famous  preferential customs'.  A CURIOUS MISUNDKKSTA.VI'ING.  It seems that what really has  happened is that Canada has  screwed her tariffs up all'round,  and given reductions to those"  who treat her fairly (which in  practice means the Mother Country only) still leaves them pay-'  ing more than they did before.  Of course there is still an advantage to those who do not pay  the maximum,, but the tendency  of fiscal methods of this kind is  not to encourage tradeV.   ,  The St. Jamos Gazette will  find, considerable difficulty in  producing evidence to prove that  this is "what has really happened". To show that this is not  the case I will repeat a few lines  from ,the Finance Minister's last  budget speech delivered May  2nd, which will probably be accepted by most as, a'closer indication of facts than the ill-informed editorial comments of the  St. James Gazette. Mr. Fielding said:���"As an,illustration of  the extent and value of this preference I.want to give the House.  c.\ SPECIMEN INVOICE  Of goods imported by, one of  Dominion and not of  the  will bo invested in ii~4'  State*  CANADIAN PACIFIC  RAILWAY  The daily service  between    r ''      ...  midiitiG  and Pacific  1     by the  ,  IMPERIAL  LIMITED  will be inaugurated on  18th   JUNE  The Quickest time  between  Sullivan Diamond Drills  Most accurate and most economical  prospecting drills made.

The' ore is a high   ^rade  galena  and   .the shipment consisted  of  about 359  sacks  milking  a carload.    Tim shipment has gone to  the C. P.   li.   smelter at Trail.  The ore was loaded at Athelinar.

The papers in the interior say very  little  about it   because they don't want to give the  country a bad name.      But here  this legislation is introduced and  without   anyone   knowing   anything about it beforehand. .Even  Hon. Mr. Hume's fastest i'riendb  before the election  are  op posed  to  this.      Deals   are    dropping  through every  day  and   capital  simply won'i come into the country.   From a financial standpoint  tho condition of affairs is terrible.  A.year ago there were 1,000 tons  of ore a, day going out of Sandon,  which  is only  'one  part  of the  !Sloca��i.'

There is,considerable 'activity  in tlie vicinity of Kimberley just  at' present, a large .amount r of  work is being douein'the development of the different properties.  The Kimberley Consolidated  Mining Company, who own a  group of claims on Sullivan Hill,  are doing considerable work, a  number of men being employed.  Another shaft is'being sunk on  the vein. This work will be continued to the 100 foot level be-'  fore cross cutting,is commenced,  a whim is now on the-ground- to  be used in this work.  The^development on^this property  so far consists of a cross  cut  tunnel   now in'  HO feet, two  shafts,'46 and *2(>feet deep,' be-,  sides several open' cuts to deter-1  mine the extent of the ore body.  ',   T. H-. Violet, whose claims lie  east of  the 'Kimberley Consolidated    property,  has   struck;," a  body of pyrrhotite ore carrying  gold silver, and copper. -   This-  ore bears a close resemblance to'  that of the  Stemwinder.     The  vein as uncovered is  about  five  feet wide.  The, Carbonate, owned by  Chisholm and "associates, had a  number of men at work during  the past month' in development.  So far it is opened upiby numerous open cuts along the vein.  The owners have in this way opened up an ore chute 120 feet  long, showing clean galena in all  of the openings.  Dickman's property, the Black  Bear and Mabel, one mile south  of Kimberley. is showing up well  a, three foot vein'of clean galena  having been uncovered.  J. Houghton, ,the new manager of the Sullivan group, has  uncovered a large body of concentrating ore on the Com.  The Hastings syndicate will  put a large force of men to develop their claims lying between  tho Sullivan group and North  Star. ��� ,  On the 1-lank Eller claim on  CJreeii Mountain, a curious combination of mineral has been encountered six foot from the surface, the quartz carrying galena,  and native copper.  Tt is said that fhe North Star  people have '4~> or 40 men now at  work on their property.  The Money Some Men Make.  fiasT Max: '-Ifi-lli.!

Scientific  r>o class of men in  new  milling regions do more to retard tlie  development of mines than those  who stake all  tho  ground  they  can possibly cover regardless of  the law or the rights  of others.  Those    who  would   locate   and  work on  claims if   they   could  have the opportunity are unable  to buy out these wholesale locators and do not wish to take issue with them at law for obvious  reasons^ though their case would  in most instances bo won in the  courts.    Local rules should limit  the number of claims which one  person could locate.  The average cost of the production of gold is lower--atj the  present time than atfanyftime' in  history, and, as a result, a decided impetus is given the gold  mining industry ..Attempts to  work low-grade ores, where failure resulted a few years ago, aro  now meeting with success as a  result of the changed condition'.  A further advance in the price  of silver is .predicted by some  who are  looked   upon a.-   good  conies Assistant Freight Agent  of Ihe Western Division; Jiead-  quarlors, Winnipeg; district extends from Port Arfhur lo Calgary.

In drifts the bottoms of which  are soft and wet, sills should be  placed-'to afford' firm support to  the posts of tlie drift sets.   ,  Quicksilver is obtained ou the  Pacific coast from four minerals���  cinnabar, metaciniiabarite, native  quicksilver and t'einannite (mercuric selenide). This latter occurs in Peuto couuty, Utah.  ��� The development of a mine is  exploration. The stoping, and  working of a mine after it is de-,  A-eloped is exploitation.

A gi'fal deal of^free advertising  has recently been given a noted  mine local ion in Ihe Northwest.

Pieces of  the country rock are often included, as though they had fallen into an open crevice. _ Such  a vein as this not infer-  qucntly has a banded structure.  This the tyjie of vein frequently  figured in text books but not  often-seen in nature.' ���-   .  Where shafts are sunk through  ground which is not solid enough  to  afford' good support to   the  timbers   by   wedging,    roachers  should be put in every 80  to  r>0  feet.     These are   let   into   the  walls, the ends resting on hitches  cut deep enough to hold, and the  timber     firmly    wedged.      The  plates of the shafts rests on these  reachers at   intervals and   they  support the weight of the several sel above as far  as  the  next  readier, oral least such  weight  as there may be.   This keeps the  shafts, set firmly  in ])lace.   and  there is little danger of collapse.  Not infrequently one reads of  and hears of dykes of .quartzite.  QuarUite is a metamorphic sand  rock formed by an infiltration of  some cementing  material,   such  as iron, carbonate of lime, or silica,   usually  the  latter,   and  in  many if not  in  all  cases  where,  silica is the cementing  material  a secondary enlargement of  the  individual grains  of sand   making up the,rock mass has oceur-  ed, each grain taking on  a  nor-  The envelopes of silica which surround the  grains coming in contact with  j'each other fill nil tho inlersticial  spaces unci lonn a firm solid rock  so it will be -.oen that qiiartzhe  is in no sense a dyke rock.
