The Liberal leaders concede  that the grils will lose a number  of scats, but will slill have a  working majority in the House.  Tho results as 'seen* through  spectacles of the Liberal' parly  is summed up as follows:  Silver Hell Mining Company,  was incorporated last week by  Messrs C M. Keep, A^ M. Sy-  monds, 11. Macdo'nald. .J. Lake  and M. Craik.  The company has incorporated  for 1,000,000 shares, and placed  (00,000'shares in lhe treasury.  10(1,000 to be sold at 7J cents.  ,  Tho properties'included inline  Silver bell group, are the Silver  Belt, Carbonate, and Silver Roll  Fraction, located on �� Spring  creek. On the Silver Belt, a live  foot vein of ore has been uncov-"  ered by open cuts for over 200  feet, and traced by surface indications over $00 fecit. The veins  run through lhe full length of  the  claim,   and   is from four to  a  eight feet wide. Tho veiif matter is carbonates and galena,  though as depth js obtained the  carbonates is giving place to a  high grade galena. The carbonates average -1Q oz in silver and  40% lead. The galena in the  bottom of the cut went SI,1, o/.s  in silver and (iS%* lead. There is  no doubt but that the Silver Belt  group has one of the best, if * not  the best showing of any' property in, the Windermere  district'.  eral.

William Langley has just  re- ,  turned   from  Sand   creek where  he   visited   the   Waterfall   now''  under   bond  to   Hockenridge   &  Lund   the  well  known   railway,  contractors,    fie says   they are  now running a funnel  some  distance, below the old workings in *  order to yet  ureal er  depth,   the  tunnel is now in Id feet and il is  expected the lead will be tapped  iu fifteen feet'.    Soon as the lead  is struck a force of men   will   be  employed,   a   camp   established  and' work  continued all winter.  The rock in the tunnel is   highly  mineralized showing its approach '  to    the    lead.       Mr.    Langely  brought up some fine  specimens  of copper and galena.  Legitimate Mining-.  There is a growing   tendency  on the part of the prospector, to  sell   his   ciaini   on   its   merits,  rather   than  what   he   thinks  ii  may be worth with developmonl.  A   good   surface   showing  does  not   necessarily    mean   a   good  mine,   this  is   for   the  mine investor to  find   oul.     The  slock  muiiip.ilator will pay more for a  prospect, or  rather  promise  to  pay more, than the man   who  is  in   legitimate   mining,    for   the  reason thai in one  case  the development  depends  entirely  on  the   sale   of  slock,   and   in   the  other tin: money for Ihis purpose  comes from lhe pocket of the in-  vestor.     Al lhe present time and  for several previous years,   milling   lhe    public   has   been    llic  favorite method, but this idea is  gradually giving   way   to    the'  commercial -aspect, of the case,  and if will be difficult,  hereafter"  to form coWpanies on -a-'ten   foot  hole  in   the grouiHl,'! with  'the  issue .   of     meaningless      prospectuses.

The section al-  ready finished shows' a knowledge of, road building, and it  ���has boon done in a workmanlike  manner, it has been estimated  that it will take ��1,000 or $1,;">U(.T  i to complete the road to' Brewery  creek. This road is almost as  much needed .as any road in this  section. There will,be no heavy  grades, and it.will be possible to  lake heavy load.-, on an almost  even grade.
