The ore i;uns high in gold  silver and copper. The vein is  exposed for a distance'of 1100  feet; the width has not yet been  determined. The shaft is in ore  as far as sunk. A11 of the ore  taken out is of a shipping grade,  and there is several tons on the  dump ready for shipment.  The Missaba, an ��� adjoining  claim, has a fine showing of galena of which two feet < is solid  on*. .The ledge is ?���',, feet. wide.  The Rose K. is a copper property upon which there is a good  showing.  ' The Lowland is adjoining and  is a continuation of the Highland  King lead. The showing on this  last claim is a most excellent  one. K. J. Higbye was on the  ground a few days ago and says  he regards that section as having as line a showing as any part  of the Fort Steele district. All  of the claims are, not to exceed,  three miles from the" Kootenay  river.-  will be commenced sometime this  month. ���������<���,  W. J. Doyle went up to Perry  creek'on Tuesday last, taking  with him a small outfit. He will  do assessment work on, the St.  George and Dragon mineral  claims. ,   -  J. H. Sullivan, who is largely  interested in the Sullivan group,  was in town during the week.  He wont out with E. C, Smith,  manager of the Sullivan, to look  at the property.  It is gratifying-to note" that  the stock of ,the, Sullynn, mines  is advancing, it has. reached 27>  cents with a prospect pf a still  further advance, probably to 30  cents, within the, next 80 days.  People in this section who .are  now on  the dump  1'nO  tons of  shipping    and   about   800  tons  of concentrating ore.    The work  is still progressing, and the owners     are    hoping,    with  ���mauy  others, that a railroad, will soon  pass up the valley of the Kootenay to carry out the mineral product of the best district in   Brit  ish Columbia.   ,,  TELEGKAPBC BRIEFLKTS.

Amine' returned from  Tracy creek where, he has been  doing the assessment" work on  the Cresent and Viking claims.  These claims are on the same  ledge' as the Estol'la, and bids  fair, with further' development,  to'be equally as,good.,. The ore  is of the  same character.     Mr.  * * (���  Amine says: "The ledge is ten  feet, wide into which we have  driven,a ten foot -tunnel, all in  ore. ,'��� <,'���.,-  .���'I regard the Tracy creek district"; continued Mr. Aiume,  "most favorably, ' and believe  that as development progresses  great'things may be; expected.'  All of the'claims so far as. open-,  ed up have , excellent' showings.  Work is being done, on a number  of claims. ' The district is all  right."' ,    ��� , ���  sharp advance beyond the figures  mentioned is predicted. _,  The breach between the mine  owners and'miners seems to bo  widening. So far as can be  learned no compromise has  yet  been affected.  '   ' '' t    '  Soveii men were put to 'work-  on the Chickamuu Stone group,  on Bull' river, yesterday; to do  general development work.  ,A gentleman well known, in  this section was offered ��40,000,  by an eastern syndicate foi\, his  group of claims on Wild Horse  creek. He declined the offer but  submitted a price for consideration.which was so favorable that  it is thought-it will be accepted.  ;   ' BIG  CHIEF.

Prom Our  Oku Correspondent.  Ottawa, June f>.���The long expected and eagerly anticipated  Redistribution Bill was introduced in the House of Commons on  Friday afternoon by the Prime  Minister, and it was found when  the details were disclosed, that  nhe Government   had   literally  - carried out the undertaking pre-  viously given, for in'the changes  proposed, county,boundary lines  have'been rigidly adhered . to;  and, where the number of electorate in any city or county  necessitated its division into  two or more ridi7igs such a division is placed in the hands of a  commission of judges^whose duty  . it will be to make an impartial and  fjqui table adjustment thereof.  The bill deals with Ontario principally for the simple reason that  ��� the injustice and inequalities of  .the past .have principally affected this province, though two or  three of the more glaring inequalities in the Province of Quebec  ���anU also be rectified.  NOT  A  CENTRA!. REVISION'.      '  Recognizing   the< broad .principle that, in the ordinary course  , of events, a redistribution should  only be necessary after each  decennial1    census,���a      principal  i which will be urged by  the  Opposition us their  chief criticism  ol the bill and one  which  theo-  j't ariilically   the Government does  not dispute,���no'.geheral'planof  i? redistribution has been attempted- nor has such been .contemplated at any,time. , Had   it  not  1 O " I,  been for the notorious gerryman-"  f; daring which  characterised  the  [ acts of,18H2 and L39y, 1 here would  ha vo been no' thought of revising the electorate boundaries at  f.his time.    Of the Ontario coiin-  Hies 2a'remain undisturbed while  thu   municipal, counties  are", restored in 19  counties  and  throe  </fies. .' The total membership of  ,the House will remain' unchang-  <?rT, for while Bothwoll. Cardwell  a_iid West Ontai-io -will cease  to  'exist as Federal .constituencies,  raud Middlesex   will  have'three  members Instead   of, four,   the  county of Kent, will receive  two  It  ^additional members and new constituencies .will be created in  .Dnfferiu and Parry Sound.  -  As stated above the only  changes iu Quebec will be,the  Ye-adjustmetit of municipal boundaries in some halt dozen; epn-  stilueuces. The same principal  ���Js applied also in Prince Edward  fsland and in the Province of  New   Brunswick   the   city   and  H<-Ountjr of St. John will be divided, and each given a member instead of continuing in the mixed  [Sjp condition they arcThfat pres-  ,eut.  ' irNWOKTHY   JUIiUNdSUATIC.     ,  It is not   to  be expected  that  ;nivact which had for its purpose  j f,he'dcst?'uetion of the unfair ad-  r vantages by 'which   the  Oonscr-  ���'vatives had benefited in the last  thr.eo oi-   four  goiiertil  elections  would escape   severe'   criticism  from the Opposition benches, but  few were prepared for  the  wild  vituperative and almost incoher-  |iera onslaught which Sir Charles  '-Tnpper made upon the bill,   the  Government   and all   its  works.  Tliis is not too severe a criticism  may be judged from the stinging  ��� retort  which   the  speech   drew  from   Sir   Wilfrid   .Laurier.' for  whether .speaking of fi-iend  or  for>, supporter or opponent,   the  Premier holds the highest repu-  jtaiion for courtliness and consideration, -'Mr. Speaker" said  Sir  Wilfrid,   '-'the   hbn.   gentleman,  [Sir Chai'les Tupper, hasjnstitold  lii.s lhat he is shocked and horri-  /,ied a.t my conduct on this  occasion,  1  tell   hi ni, very solemnly,  [that J am not shocked nor horri-  med at anything he says, scandal-  Ions as it was,, as  it   always  is:  rf Lie lion,  gentleman   has ������gwen  I proof more than once, thisscason  [that.he is no longer able  to discuss,   that  he  is   only  .able   to  scurrilous as to be unworthy   of  Billingsgate", and when a moment later Sir Charles ventured to  interrujjt the   Premier   with   a  denial of a statement he had just  made,   Sir Wilfrid  answered:���  "I am accustomed to that, whenever a charge is brought against  the hon. gentleman we hear from  him that there is not a  word  of  truth in it.     We have won bye-  elections byrj corruption .and  by  the lavish use of money  private  and public, Sir, there have been  more  than  thirty   bye-elections  won by the Liberal Government  since the general election in 189(5.  These hon.   gentlemen  opposite  tell us today, when there is   no  responsibilities     behind      their  word,   that   we   have   obtained  these victories by the lavish use  of  money,  private  and   public.  How is it that they have not "the  courage to, bring  a  single case  before the courts?    Not a single  election     has   been   contested.  They have had their opportunities   to   prove   their   charges.  The courts were open to them to  establish  their allegations  that  we have used money wrongfully  in the bye-elections, but in  this  as in all other matters they have  failed to,act." ,  A  MISFIT  CRITICISM.  ' One criticism that Sir Charles  Tupper  offered   on   the   Redistribution Bill does not appear to  hang very well together.      Having expressed his conviction that  :the bill had been introduced because the Government was afraid  to. go back to the country  under  the old condition,  he proceeded  to repeat the old story that they  had won the last election by the  ''Janus-faced policy"'"of promising coercion in Manitoba to Quebec, and no coercion to rOntai-io.  Subsequently a  straight'' policy  of no coercion was that followed  .by the Government': "and .therefore,   according *to Sir Charles  Tuppcr's   own  statement,   faith  was kept with Ontario and brok  en with Quebec.     But the redistribution bill leaves Quebec practically, undisturbed, while   it, readjusts the constituencies iii,Ontario. There appears, to be something a little out of plumb some-  ���-        * , ii..  where in the argument: perhaps  Oppositionists who'are yet to  speak on the debate, .would lie  good cuough to make their leader's position a little more  clear.  OUR  . POOR    RUINED   'COUNTRV.  The    trade    returns    for   the  month of April are' out and  still  there is no indication of that inevitable disaster and ruiu which  was to follow.the advent of  the  Liberals to power., On the other  hand there is the fullest evidence  that that, progress and  prosperity to which wo are becoming accustomed, is growing and  gaining    in    strength   and   volume  mouth  by   month. <   The , value  of dutiable goods imported  for  home   consumption   during   the  month   amounted   to   $8,0112,7!M  upon which duty to the  amount  of *2. :!.'.���<>, 41 <J.0l>   was   collected:  free goods' tir?4,U8l,'{00.   and ��� coin  and bullion $;J8,079, making "the  total imports$12,4a2,117: as compared  with  dutiable  goods  $(>,-  0S2, KM upon which *1,7r>:j,(;r>:J.SJ0  was col loci ed: free goods $o, .">.">0, -  124. in coin and bullion S-liifi, KM,  with   a   total  of   $1U, 127,(i;:4    in  April 1898 or increase of !?2,:J24,-  4S;-j.

The newspaper business is the  only business that everybody  understands, says.an exchange.  We do not know how the secret  gets out in every village, town  and city in the world. The office boys must "give " it away.  However, the cat is out of the  bag aud theretis no use denying  it. The man who carries in the  wood and coal will stop and tell  you how to do it. Every business house in every town has  someone about it who knows all  about how a newspaper should  be run." It-makes us sad to think-  about it. but0we suppose it will  ever be thus.

''**���* '  Do" gold nuggets grow ':   is  a  question that has beeu<asked several 'times.    Under certain   circumstances they undoubtedly do.  Several years ago a  prospector  picked up a nugget in a California  gravel mine which weighed ��1300.  Ever since that'time this nugget  has  steadily  grown, until   now  when reference is   made   to   the  finding of thehnup it is  usually  stated that it weighed$1600.    In  a few years it will probably have  grown to s(5000 and  possibly   in'  time it may roach ��00,000.  There  is no  real evidence to  indicate  that nuggets grow in any' other  manner than above described.

Stratton,  who  recently  sold the  Independence mine  at  Cripple   creek   for   ^lO.OuO.Of'l),  discovered'the mine in  I Kill.  Bolivia is credited   with   hav-  ���   nig produced more than 200,000,-  000 in gold.    New Grenada is to  have produced more than #S00,-  000.000 in gold.  Alder ,'Gulch, in Montana, is  said to have produced iu three  years $80,000,000. The total output of the guieh is placed by  some as high as ��70. UllU.WU.  Diamonds have been found in  a number of localities in the  United" States���in California.  North' Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Colorado, Wisconsin. Oregon,'and it" is reported, also iu  ' Idaho', Arizona and Montana.  'One of the .largest if not absolutely the largest gold ore body,  in the United States is that in  the Homestake mine, South Dakota, which on thefbOO foot level  is said'to be 4.70 feet wide, all  pay ore. The fact'that a shaft  has been sunk 425 feet through  sold    bearing   gravel  warship to pa-sS through. 11  will have a width at the top of  ^17 feet and 117 at Ihe bottom,  wilh a depth of ifil feet.  The canal is being so strongly  built that vessels may steam  through it at t'le i-ate of six  knots an hour. It will take six  days for a large vessel to pass  through it. travelling night and  day. The canal is to be lighted  along the whole course bv electricity, aud the total cost is estimated at about 'J24.000.000.  Pour years will be required to  complete the undertaking.'  The advantages, commercial  aud otherwise, which Russia expect:, to derive from the making  of this mammoth canal will more  than compensate for the enormous outlay., and the scheme is  viewed'very favorably throughout the czar's dominions.
