Notice--Andrew 35. i;racc   ..a  Pni?�� 8  It?  |l��  High Assay J"iom the Ethel.  ,��� The Ethel claim in Horse Shoe  Oulch, about seven miles from  Town, is now attracting consid-  - erablo attention, largely on account of high assays in gold recently made from ore brought,  into town by A. Clarke.  Mr. Clarke gives the following  regarding the claim   which   will  . be of interest:  ������I w��nt'down to examine the  Bthol claim aud from my  exam-  i nation regard the property as a  most excellent one.    It is situated convenient to the wagon road  siud river,   aad is close  to the  proposed line of railway.     The  only work done on.the claim is a  12-foot incline  tunnel   following  a rich' vein of gray copper^vary^.  iug from one   to  five, inches  in  width and showing up across the  ,entire face of  the  tunnel.      No  part   of  the streak -yields less  -   than ��1,000   in  gold,   and  some  specimens [ brpught back with me  show free gold all over thequartz.  I have had two assays made from  , the quartz and gray copper, from  .samples in which  no free gold  could be discovered, which gave  a result of $ 1,006.?>7  in'one  and.  $L,*280 in the other, besides from  12 to 21 per cent in  copper and  several ounces  iii  silver.     The  ������"���cher specimens  I  have  might  yield anywhere  from  $5,000  to  ' 81.0.000 to the'ton."   "The quartz  lead in which   tlie  grey  copper  occurs is from two to three  feet  ���wide and everywhere gives gold  to the pan.   ' t  ', ��� -There arc other promising gold  Miid copper17 leads- on  the' same  ' claim upon' which, ho' work   has  yet been done."   ���' ���  , To Work the Big Chief.  -The Big Chief .Mining Company will shortly be incorporated, and work~will be conducted  on an extensive scale this ..summer. The present force of six  men will be continued.' and its  number augmented from time1 to  time as the wbrk(wUl warrant.  Soon as the -road up Boulder  (���'reek is completed the ten-stamp  mill.will be brought in. The new  owners are perfectly satisfied with  their new acquisition, and believe  they have a property which with  .development will prove a veritable bonanza.  in the Windermere district, said  Fred West yesterday. ' Work is  being done on all of' the mines  which can, be reached,, and a  number of people are waiting to  go into the hills as soon as the  snow will permit.  R. A. Kimpton has sent a number of men to go on with development on the Delphine.' one of  the prominent Toby creek properties. This claim shows more  work done than any other in the  vicinity. The ore6is exceptionally high-grade and .there is  enough ore now on .the dump to  warrant a shipment besides about  twenty, tons at the landing.  ��� G., Mitchell-Innes is working  a number of men on the Vulcan,  another Toby- creek property.  He will shortly resume work on  the��Pretty Girl.  Only four men are at work on  the Swanseaat present but the  force will be increased as soon  as possible.        " ���     '  �� About a mile north west of tho  Swansea is the Julian group,  from which some high-grade ore  is being taken; in fact the ore  now being taken'out will be shipped to,Swansea, the owners believing they will-get better results. The claim' has been developed by l.">0 feet in tunnel and  'cross-cut.'        , , -  Another Strike  in   the   North. Star.  , A strike of wonderfully rich ore  was made in the North Star mine  on Tuesday last. The ore was  found in drift, .on" the L'00-i'oot  level. xVnd is richer 'and better than any yet, encountered in  the mine. �����  ,No further information regarding the strike could be obtained.

Steve Young and Dave New-  , ell while prospecting on Wild  Horse, about nine miles from  town, last Sunday, struck a  three-foot ledge of .-splendid ap-  pearingquartz. Mr. Young says:  ���'The ledge is a strong one and  ,so far as examined is well miner-'  nlized. Tho claim lies close to  ihe creek, taking in the old aras-  ira bed. The discoverers will  prospect the claim still further,  sind it is to lie hoped they have  i\ bonanza.  Located An Asbestos Claim.  Eight years ago Henry  Eller  discovered   asbestos   about  live  jniles from town, but did not  locate the claim until   Wednesday.  The exact location of  the  claim  was not made known, the locator  preferring lo say  nothing  until  r.fie property was more thoroughly    prospected.       The    product  taken from the sur'ace is of good  quality,   and' has a  commercial  value.    Ttwill   undoubtedly   improve with  development.

Sir William Van Home is to become chairman of the  board  of  directors,   Thomas G.. Shaugh-  nessy. president; B.   B.   Angus,  vice-president, aud D. McNieoll^  assistant general manager. ' The  position to be taken by Mr. Van  Home  is    similar -to    that    of  Chauncoy M. Depew, who retired  from the presidency of the Van-  derbilt system to become chairman    of   tlie   Vanderbilt   lines.  The correspondent further says-  "Biit  there  is   a   still   broader  meaning    to    these ', .important  changes,  which cannot  now  be  very   long   delayed,   and   which  has found echo in the C.

Ottawa, May 8.���The practical  business of the session has  now  begun in earnest and  every' day  sees additions to the order  pap-  -or of mai.ters of a more  or  loss  important doihestic'character.  A  couple of useful bills were given  a-second reading at   the end, of  last week one coming from each  .side of the House.    Mr. Bertram  -   the Liberal member, for Toronto,  reintroduced     his    bill    giving  , irades unions the right tq register trade marks and labels in the  -same    manner   that   individual  aianufacturers or firms can  do.  This 'bill Avont through the Lower House -last session practically  '    without opposition,   but  it  aviis  .   thrOAvn out in the  Senate  upon  grounds which were not at? the  time1 considered particularly satisfactory,   by  the  thousands  of  working- ��� men    throughout   the  country interested,in the bill.   It  rs.not anticipated however  that  this opposition will be seriously  ��� renewed when  the bill  reaches  the Upper House this session.  The" second  measurt  referred  to'is aimed  at  trade  combines,  the present law rendering, these  organizations    illegal   being,  so  .jtrnbiguously worded' as   tO'  be  ��� practically    inoperative., , ���  The  principle and spirit' of.,this  law  has   already   been accepted  by  the nation and the .added ��� experience of "the last year 'or  two "of  ���   the working of trust iii the neighboring republic has given  still  �� greater    reason   for''legislative  protection-to Canadian trade.'  ���  "      '    'THI'.   PLAINS   OF   ABUA1IAM.  The ���, Anglo-Saxon' ���', race'   'is  usually looked upon as  such   an  ���    oixecssively-practical people that  ��� . sentiment is not popularly  sup-  ' posed to enter into  it's ��� composition to any  marked degree  and  Scarcely  a  day,-, passes,'  but   in  -some    portion    of:\,Uie   Empire'  'comes the most/ irrefutable evi-'  tlehce of the deep-rooted and mi;  '   i'rersally1 " pre vailing.' - senti ment  which is,' to tv very great extent,  the ruling.infuience'of our  Gov-  , eminent, and of the people.     A  striking'example of this may be  t'ouid  very  near  home   at   the  tpresent moment.' in  i-eliitibu to  the future of the'Plains of Abraham, at Quebec.    The announcement that the lease or title under  which the Crown holds the property will shortly ex]iirc and that  there   was' a  strong  possibility  feliat  this   historic   ground,   the  birthplace of Canadian nationality, would to all intents and purposes be wiped out by the  desecrating hand of the real  estate  speculator aud jerry builder, has  ( called forth not only deep intor-  ' o-sfc and emphatic remonstrances  both here and in the Old Country.  Hi was therefore  with   much   interest  that  the  country, learnt,  from  the  Minister  of  Militia  a  /ot days ago  that   the  Government was (|uilc disposed  to favorably consider the  proposition  Lo acquire the properly,  "if  the  price is reasonable*'.     A  young  country    like    Canada   lias. too  ���uncli to do   with  her  money   in  fne way of national development  to be able to stand any frills and  unnecessary trimmings,   but  he  would be a  mcau-souled  individual who would take exceptiou to  f-ixpendifure such as  is  contemplated here.     The present lease  expires May 1, 1!)01.  CAS ADA'S  NAVAL  KESKUVl**.  the proposal has been received,  and is being discussed in England, may be taken as an indication that the possibilities ' and  value of the project are fully  recognized and appreciate d.  WORTH SOME "ATTENTION.  At the risk  of wearying you  with too-oft recurring reference  to the subject, I  cannot  refrain  from calling atteulion once more  to the  necessity and   value   of  closely studying the  prejudices  to the British consumer and  deferring    to     his     requirements  even though we may believe his  judgment is at fault.     Speaking  of the shipment of live  stock  to  Great.Britain   foi-  instance,   the,  London correspondent of the Toronto  Globe  says:-���"From   my  own observations in Ihe  matter  1 am convinced that   with   very  little extra attention  and   effort  Canadian farmers might   reap  a  very much greater pecuniary return from this branch  of  trade.  For instance, very much depends  on such seemingly small matters  as   condition"  aud    appearance,  and' it is simple nonsense to  say'  that the Canadian ^product  cannot be put'upon the market in the  most profitable fashion.    T doubt  if there   is any   market  in ��� the  world where attention to details  brings so great a  profit   in   increased price as" here.' and, this"  refers to every line  of  trade  in  which Canada may take part.  CONDITION'S 'NEVER BETTER.  Since passing of the preferential tariff, act by Canada tliere  has been a very notable' increase  This is expected to take the form  of a life-boal to be placed on  some suitable portion of thewe.-.t  coast of Scotland about which  Mi*. Black wrote so much and so  entertainingly. It has beensug-  gested as Mr. Black had many-  readers in Canada some of them  might wish to participate in the  movement. Any Canadian admirer of Mr. Black-!-., writings  who desires to take tho matter up  should communicate with Miss  Stronach. the Secretary of the  committee, whose address is 118  Warwick street.

Its too dull to ad  by British business men, as Canadians liave heard ,1'roni many  sources. But, as ' Sir Wilfrid  Laurior'said at Ottawa the' other  day.1- the actual increase, in business has not' been so great as he  would like' to 'see: " Canadians  naturally are more deeply inter-'  vertise now. Wait until times  pick ui)'a little," is equivalent to  a very sick person0saying' to a  physician: "Oh! no,' doctor, I  can't take any of your,j medicine  now. , Wait until 1 cet better,  and then I'll take it." AVhen tho  patient   gets   well���if   he   ever  ested in increasing their,exports i does���he will not be in need  to this country, but'the difficulty  of doing that must be very much  enhanced unless thore?be a,corresponding increase" hi tlie business done by British .traders in  Canada. It is worth noting too,  that" tlie rapid development of  the Australian and - South.African'mining fields by British capital was largely due to tho fact  that British   business  men  had'  large ^interests in, 'and were in  close touch with, these ��� colonies  though they are very much more  distant from England than Canada is".  THK  ESTIMATES   FOR.    I SV)9���LflOO.  The estimates for the fiscal  year 1HH9-Ifl00. which have'been  submitted to Parliament, show  the care which is being taken by  the Government to apportion  the public funds where they will  bring the best results in the public service. , The total amount  asked ' for" is �� ��40.8815.550.77  against $ 17.1)00,956.41 last year  or  ;i  decrease  of  $1, (i I y,!)��().-11.  Some   of   the   individual   items  The development *of .the Empire goes on apace, in fact at so  .sr-reat a -pace  that  it is  by   no  means an easy matter to keep up  with it, and it 'may   be  assarted  without much fear of contradiction that  Canada  will  continue  to hold her own in the front rank  of the procession.      One of  the  more  recent evidences  of  this,  fiaa been the proposal  from   Sir  I^oi'is Davies, for the   inauguration and development of  a  system of training for Canadian seamen, for tlie British   Navy,   and  TV-be enthusiastic manner in which  however show considerable increase and in each instance these  increases are for the purpose  either of developing the resources, of the country, or of  strengthening the bonds of the  empire. For example the cost  of administering the Yukon is  est,imated at $'270,550 more than  last year and immigration Trill  be assisted by another $100,000.  The Militia Department asks for  $100,000 more than last year to  enable more thorough drilling  operations to be engaged in this  summer, and another $100,000  equipment.  There .are. some notable de.  creases however for the cosl of  legislation isT expected to be a  quarter of a million dollars less  than lust year, and the mail subsidies will come down $155,000.  The most noteworthy decrease  in capita] expenditure is in railways and canals which are $L',-  272,7H'2 below last year's.  of  medicine. The best, time to ad-'  vertise is'when the need of stimulant, is the greatest, and I hat  is when business is' dull. ���F.  '.I.

Good Advice.      t  The practice,among  prospectors  of  naming   new   locations  after well-known mines is a bad  one and should cease, as it leads  to much confusion  in the  iden  tintuition of property and really  subseryos   no    useful    purpose,  says  the Mining  and   Scientific  Press.    The idea is probably   to'  borrow a little of the glory which  attaches to a successful mine, but  an original name  would  be  far  more appropriate.  The stoping of a vein up fo the  surface, leaving a line of open  excavations along the lode in the  early history of the mine, is bad  practice but one nearly always  followed. It leaves the lower  workings ' exposed to surface  drainage, aud caves usually result, increasing the size of the  open cuts, which still further increases the disadvantages of the  system.  Where a shaft is sunk through  a large ore body a, pillar of sufficient size must be left to insure  the security of the shaft. If  stopes are carried too close, the.  ground in which the shaft is sunk  likely to shift, throwingjthc shaft  out of line and. resulting in great  and unnecessary expense, and  danger as well. ���  RIVERSIDE.

The report of the  Minister  oi'  Mines shows  much  care  in  its  preparation,, and, no  section  f*f  the Province seems io have been  , overlooked.        With    the   small  force  at the   command   oi'   the  Minister of Mines and   the  Provincial Mineralogists it is a wonder that so creditable, a   volume  has been compiled.     Tlie  Port  Steele  division  is given   a  fair  share of attention.    Por the most  part   it. is  satisfactory,   and   is  seemingly more exhaustive than  that appearing in any preceding  reports.    Mr.  Robertson traveled between HOOand 900 miles ,in  the division and practically covered the entire field.     He says:  "The   mineral   development   of  the district can scarcely be said  last week in secret session to  I'onsifler the eight-hour law,  which is to be enforced, and un  animously decided that they  would pay miners three dollars  per day of eight hours, says the  Nelson Tribune. They also decided that if the miners would  not work J or that wage, the.  mines in their charge will be  closed down .indefinitely'.  Hugh Sutherland, in the interests of a development company  in Toronto, has secured a working bond on the Storm King and  Copper King group of mines in  the While (Jrouse mountain district. The company are to do  !?:")(),0U0 worth of work during'  the life of lijfie bond.  The '2Atli' of May will be appropriately celebrated in a number of towns in  Kootenay. '  The  Bank   of   Montreal   last  Saturday exported to the United  States  assay  ofiice   at   Helena.  to have reached the mining stage j'Montuna, live gold bricks, which  the  Coal iwcr(J   ^Me-rod   as   being   worth  with the exception  of  creek collieries,  the North  Star  aud St. Eugene mines, yet it' is  -gradually passing from1 the prospecting,    to     the   development  stage."    He truly says iii speaking of development:     "The  ad-  * vent of  the  railway   has   been  looked forward to with great an-  R   ticipationon the' part of 'those  |l* interested.    By some it has been  the.excuse' for deferring, development work until cheaper tran's-  , portation became an accomplish-  $17.4(10. The bricks were from  the mills of at couple of mining  properties in the vicinity of Nelson.  The Dominion estimates con-  tain an item of *?:���{,000 for the  further improvement of Duncan  river. p ' . _ '  ' The new concentrator at the  St. Eugene mine will have a capacity of ,100 or 150 tons w- day.  300,000 foot of lumber will be required in its construction. The  <sd.    Now that the railway is into' wprkingforce will be materially  the diistrict-the prices asked  for  prospects have'been  advanced;  often to figures  which  are prohibitory to capital actually seeking  investment and  willing   to  risk it on a prospect only slightly developed.      Latterly,   how-  jt ��ver, better counsel has prevailed!"*'Many prospects have  been  bonded on fair  terms,, anil  tlie  ���past suirimer, has  seen  a  largo  ���/' amount of  work' ' done   by'  the  ���bqud-holders.cthe result of which  will soon become apparent."  The reportcontain* a number  of beautiful view's Taken in the  district,' showing' that..Mr. 'Rob-  -ertson, besides being a capable  and painstaking otticer, lias the  artistic sense largely developed.  ".Since Mr. Robertson was here  mairy new discoveries have'been  made, and a number of claims  which were only pi-ospects then  increased, and during  the  sum-  aggregate strength of the troops  1 employed during the   war  with  Spain   was approximately  "7r>.-  00(),  covering  the  period   from  May., 1H08, to April, 1890, inclusive. - During this time the deaths  from all causes were 6190, or 2.1  per cent.
