Minnie M. and Tiger.
The prospectus oi  the Lewis
Creek Mining Company has been
issued.      The   incorporation   is
based upon the ownership of two
claims    on     Lewis   creek,    the
Minnie M: and Tiger well known
properties.     According,  to   the
prospectus     the      development
work has thus far been  confined
to,'the .''Minnie   M."   near- the
'•Tiger"  line      This  work con-
sists'of a number of open cuts on
the'surface aud'two tunnels, one
of which is in forty feet   en   the
ledge, showing fine ore its entire
length.   'The second  tunnel   begins, lower .down   the mountain
and runs at a   right angle  with
the upper tunnel and i.s about 120
I'eet'in'length. . When the, ledge
is "reached at about 30 feet  fur
ther a depth of overlOO feet will
have been attained. 'This  ledge
is more than four feel  in 'width
at' present,   traversing'  a   .slate
formation:   and   the indications
are"that the' ledge  lies" between
slate l and'    quartzite.   '      The
character of the quartz mailer'is
such that leads to the belief that
a little furl her development will
disclose a contact  ledge.     This
ledge   matter   is   concentrating
and  also'   has    a   solid • galena
streak of six inches on   the  foot
wall.     The  course  ol' the ledge
is  nearly  east  nndc west with a
dip  of about  4.")   degrees to the
north.     This   property  can   be
easily and cheaply worked.
Ab    Viewed    By     a    Mining-    man.
George    A.     Kontiemann   the
well known mining engineer  rer
turned on Sunday last  from   the
Upper St. Mary's where, he   had
been to examine  the properties
of    the  Pyramid   Mother   Lode
Company.    Mr.  Sonnemann   declined to talk on   the subject of
his trip,   but  gave   in   brief  his
impressions    of    that   country.
He  says:    °*'There  are  a large
number of strong ledges traversing the country* many" of  which,
judging from  the  surface  indications,   will   prove  permanent.
So  far  work   has r-been „of  the
most   superficial   character  not-
enough   for   one   to  hazard   an
opinion as to the' outcome.      Although  ,with   development   the
district may assume' importance
and probably will.     It is certainly a district of  great  possibilities,' but dt   will   require  a   large
amount of development to determine the value of the ledges.     I
was much impressed   with   what
I seen and think highly of that
section, the geological conditions
being »>uch as to warrant the belief  that,, the  veins ,are  permanent.     It ' is an   ideal   country
for the prospector."
Mr.' Somiemann returned to
Spokane on Monday but will
come back to Fort Steele.within
a month. " "    _     ,

Ores For Exhibition Purposes.
While our people are yetting
together an exhibit for the Paris
Exposition one should also be
secured for the Spokane Industrial Exposition. Fully as much
good will be accomplished by
sending the ore to Spokane as to
Paris, and will better attract the
attention, not of mine promoters
bul of practical mining men.
The exhibits heretofore sent
to Spokane from tlie Fort Steele
district, hare attracted lieneral
attention. The Spokane Exposition will draw mining men
from all over the country1 who
will, by the display made form
some idea as to the different districts, liy all means send an
exhibit to Spokane.

Of Interest to Miners.
While casually walking along
a ground sluice of a mine in Sierra county,'Ciil., recently, a visitor picked up a nugge't of gold
weighing a pound.
All lengthy" tunnels should
have an air shaft connecting with
the surface, which will also afford
a means of escape for men in
case of accident. '     ■  •
The     first •   recorded      labor
"strike" was 2211 years ago—812
li. C.—when flute players under
Numa Pompiliusof Rome refused to play at? a  banquet   unless
paid   what  they   thought   their
services were worth.     Later on
Nero posed as a friend of labor
and stirred up considerable strife
Trajan. f>2  A    D.,   opposed ' the
labor unions and  had  a  stormy
'reign.   There is nothing modern
about    strikes   any   more   than
about trust.     Most  of what   is
said   regarding   both #was  said
2000 years ago.     In all ages has
existed a  natural desire  to  get
all    possible    for   any . -article,
whether, labor, skill or manufactured product.
It is understood that W. S.
Stratton was'the'original discoverer of the Independence, Colo.,
mine, though if was not the first
discovery in the Cripple creek
district. Prior to this Cripple
creek discovery, Mr. Stratton
was a carpenter, prospector and
miner. He was never a' doctor
so far as known. It is claimed
that the independence was sold
at ¥511,000,000; Mr. Stratton receiving part cash and the balance
iti stock in the corporal ion taking over the property. No positive statement can be hero made
as to the value or amount of ore
blocked out in reserve in the
mine. 'l • .
Although much falilt i.s found
with, those who work out the
richest portions of a mineral deposit, leaving the low grade material for those who come later,
there are few who would not do
likewise if placed in similar position.
ly believinir in the value  erf  his
property, he looks to those having capital to invest in his mine.
In consideration of  these  facts,
the ejuestion so often put lo  the
prospector, ''Why do you  wish
to sell your mine if it is so good
ii thing?" i.s as absurd as it would
be to ask the  owner  of  a  high'
grade property,   '"Why do you j
not sell your mine since -il  is  so '
good?". „ j

Why Prospectors Want to Sell.
The Mining & Scientific  press
says:    "Of the mines   that  pay
comparatively   few   \yould  ever
become valuable without the, aid
of capital, and this  primary  requisite the claim owner general-
I3' lacks..    He may   have  muscle
and grit and may   be  willing  to
work faithfully to  the  end,   but
at'best his  efforts  will   develop
the  mine superficially.     Those
who are fortunate enough to own
a claim so favorably located that
ithe development can be accomp
lished by means ot tunnels have
an'easier road  to   fortune   than
those, who must sink ii shaft   for
the same  purpose.      In   either
ciise cash  is  necessary   for   the
purchase of tools   and   supplies.
The facility with  which   a   mine
may be opened depends  wholly
upon its situation.     Those  ideal
locations, where the vein maybe
opened by adits with a thousand
I'eet of backs: where there i.s an
abundance of fine timber to be had
for   merely   cutting   it.    where
a splendid water power is situated atV the foot   of   the  hill,   and
where every ton of  ore  is  rich,
are not often found.    Good prospects, which have developed into great mines,   in   many   cases
have  been  situated   in   regions
difficult    of    access,   timberless
and devoid of water, at least for
power, and with every  conceivable disadvantage   surrounding
ithem.      These • mines ■ .required
'capital,   to   equip   and   develop
them, .and,'..the  result, has  been
satisfactory to the' investor.  The
prospector who fortunately finds
a vein of Ore from which he can
'ship with profit'at  once,   needs
no capital, indeed,capital.immediately'seeks him   and   endeavors
to purchase his claim,..usually.at
a price  considerably below"'what
the finder thinks it worth.    The?
other  prospector  who  found   a
'   Answering several queries on'
the subject e>f the right of aliens
to purchase and   locate   mineral '
lands of the United States:   The !
United   State.-,   statutes  plainly
state (2JJMJ):    "All valuable mineral deposits in lands belonging
to the United States,   both.surveyed and unsurveyc'd. are hereby declared to be free and   open
to exploration and purchase,"and
the lands in which they are found

Any_stiite law giving' aliens the

the lands of the public domain is
in conflict with the United States

this:   '"A mineral entry madeby

land covered  thereby  is  segregated  from   the public domain.
This simply means  that a   location made bv  an  alien may be

Fort Steele at the Paris Exposition.
The specimens  for  the  Paris
Exposition must be in by August
J.r>.   So far not one specimen has
been received.  The time is short
and it is certainly desirable that
the Fort • Steele  district should
be well represented.  In no other
section of the Province  is  there
such apathy.    El sow lie re boards
of trade are taking an active   interest in securing specimens  of
what their districts can produce.
No  other, district in British Columbia can show,such' a  variety
of ore as East Kootenay and our
people should get down to  business and have no further delay.
Unless something is done at once
East Kootenay will not   be  rep-
epiesfing the government's inter-  routed/at ihe   Exposition,'   unless   it   be   that   pari    between
British Columbia, says the Toronto World. The head oflice of
the company is to be at Kaslo,
and the company office is to be
at 11 and ll'Clements-lane, London, England. The capital of
th(i company is L'f 100,000, divided
into OOd.OOO shares of £1 per
share. Arthur McCuager of

the lode mines ot British Columbia, have paid dividends to dale
to the extent of J&J, 1:2(5,-1(55. This
does not represent the actual
amount of dividends, but is all

Take: the Poorman mine for instance. For eight or ten years
the Owners got out "ore in, sum-

OFF   Voi'K.IKKJS.  Tlie manner in which the civil  servants in the Vultonjiave been  relentlessly hounded for the-last  two years is probably unexampled in the history of this  or   .    any other civilized  community.       and    . the       comment of a correspondent  in   the  Toronto    Globe    writing     from  Dawson   May   21 .will - commend  itself to all lovers of  liritish fair  play.     The writer   i.ays:--''Tho  policy ol" the Nuguet paper seems  to be to  keep  up  the  agitation  against the   officials   as   long  a.s  possible.    To my mind the Government will make a   misjake  if  any  further   notice   is   taken   of  -   these   alien   maligner.s.        Ever  .-since Mr. Ogilvie came in,   agit  tutors of   this  chi>s   have   been  pandered   te>.   .so   much   se;   that  every official has been placed almost  at   the   mercy  of   a   most  damnable crowd of blackmailers.  Anyone having a grudge against  an official1 could always  get' tho  ear e>f the Commissioner, so zeaJ-  Pui.n ha.s been his efforts to carry  out ihe wishes   of   the   Minister  for clean and hoiieM gc-\ erninent.  No one i>  above  .suspicion,   and  this j?, .somewhai irnMinn to tlnj.se-  officials who have conscientiou.s-  l'v oerformed their  duty.      li   is. j  time for this to >toj).      The   offi-j  cials here now are doimr  every-{  thintr in their power to carry out j  the regulation^, and in  lhe daws j  that are   gone    the   very    worst I  feature was   not   the   corruption)  amongM th�� officials but the dis- j  honesty of the community,   with j  which they had to deal.     Those; j  Americans   are;   much    used-; to j  'sharp   practices'  at   home'v that  . Ui'e'y-������cannot- . understand   how   a  man can be, a Government ofheiaI  without   being   corrupt?   ��� They!  are always the worst toadiers- to  officialdom    I    have   ever   conic  ' across.    They are  always   looking for a 'graft' and   if.; they   do j  not. ��cel what they want they are i  sure   some   one else   must   have j  '"���rafted" belter .than themselves, j  cent   postage  a  success".      -'It'  will undoubtedly"be found   after I  a year or two's trial, that a two-  ceut rate tor lei'ters will produce '  as large a revenue a> the former '  three cent, rate.     The   receipts,  under the new tariff have already j  i exceeded    the   estimate   <>f   the  Postmaster-GrMi��ral.   -aud     the I  probabilities are that the  dericitj  caused by. the reduction  will, be-'  completely   wiped   out   iu    the.  course of a couple of vears. ;  1 i  OI.'K      nKKPKNKO      WATKKWA.YS. I  The opening of the Soulaugesi  canal next,mouth  will  complete I  the deep waterway down the St. |  Lawrence river, and reduce   the  cost of carrying wheat f'i;om the  western, fields   to  the   sea port  just about, one-half.     The', value  of this to Canadian shipping  interests caTmeit be over estimated,  for as one Chicago paper declares  '���'lhe cost  of transporting   lake  freight to tide wafer will  be  re-,  duced beyond   the possibilty  of  profitable    competition   by   any  other existing route".    It is generally recognized in tlie markets  cjf the world  that   the   price  of  wheat is fixed at Liverpool   and  consequently  all   that,  is   saved  on- the   cost    of   transportation  goes.into the producers 'pocket.  The statement is made   that  the  added returns to the farmers  of  Northwest for the single item of  wheat     alone    would ' annually  amount to" '*(i.000.00(i   of   which  our'own   farmers  would  secure  their share.    The wisdom of ,the  Government therefore, in hurrying" on the work which has.dra'ir-  c  ged along for so many years under their predecessors needs no  argument to establish.  AND   NOT   n-KAlj   VKT.  A Kansas paper tells of a Saute Fe section foreman   who  sent  in the following  report ,to   the  road    master:��� "MacWhort er's  bull struck  at  the  long   siding  and killed.  We found him alongside the track'   and   he   was   not  epiite   dead  then.   1   borrowed   a  gun and   shot  him   three   times,  killing him  again.     Dennis   Sul  livan  then   struck   him   another  blow on  the  head  and   finished  him.     The   bull   is   now   dead."  Commenting upon   this  exciting  anecdote the Toronto   Globe   remarks:��� '"This    resembles     the  lerrible carnage that has attended   the   attacks   e..n   Mr.    Sifton.  Sir Hibbert killed him   when   h<>  collided   with   him   in   his   first  speech.      Sir Charles killed him  again    al    Shcrbrookc,   and   Sir  Hibbe'rt. finished him on.Tuesday  night.
