Doro,  -who returned a  few  days  ago.  says:���Burns lias an  interest, in  a hydrauliccjaim on Wild Horse  but  has 'none whatever  in' the  Grace Dore. and that, his pretensions  to  ownership ' cannot   be  maintained. Hnrnsacknowledges  in'the complaint that, he did   not  pay out any money of  his  own,  but, did pay out money furnished  by Cosgrove for work on the hy-  .dranlic  claim.     Mr.   Dore   paid  his expenses from Spokane and  return.      This   hydraulic   claim  ���was located in April   last,   while  1 he Grace Dore was  not  located  until July MUh.     Burns knew of  the location   but   never  claimed  |)    an interest until recently.  There  .is no  grub   stake  or  any  other  kind of an agreement with   Doro  orCosgrovoon record here,and no  jfigre/'inent that Burns was to   be  in on any  subsequent   locations.  ' The action of the Spokane court  in granting- the injunction, seems  fo be without effect in the  Province, as an injunction  issued   by  a foreign court is   nof  operative  i  lit;re.

About a.  dozen men are now employed  and this force will be added to  >is room can be made.  Joe Lessard came into Winder  Albert. Demers paid a visit, to  the Little Chief mine (in 'Wednesday. .He expresses himself  as much pleased with the showing.  The bulletins, distributed on  the trains of the Canadian Pacific railway made an announcement a few days ago that a million' dollar, company had been  organized in Montreal to develop'  mines in, the vicinity of Fort  Steele.  Ore from the St. Eugene mine  is the only exhibit from the Fort  Steele district at the Spokane  Industrial Exposition.  The owners of the Swansea  mine expect to take out TiOO tons  of ore from tlie mine to Windermere during the winter,' and  ship to flic smelter in the  spring.  The tunnel on the Little Chief  mine is now in Iii' feet.  .John 11. Kink went down to  the Ciiickanion Stone on Wednesday. Tie reports great progress being made.���nnd that the  ore bodies are improving in size  as the work1 progresses. Mr.  Fink believes that the company  has now a mine of which the  country may well be proud.  The cross cut tunn,el being  driven on the Minnie M. and  Tiger, is now ii'i Hit1! feet and the  ledge wa.s encountered at that  point. Cross cutting the ledge  has been commenced. It is expected to be from six to eight  feet wide.1 The property i.s  owned by the Lewis Creek Mining Company, and is .regarded as  one of the good properties of  that section. . '7  , A deal is pending for1' the purchase of the Blue Bell mine on  Kootenay lake, opposite Ains-  wortli. An .English syndicate  has un option on the property.  Go On With Development.^  There is   more  active  mining  going on in the vicinity of Fort  Steele then'ever before since the  early, diiys on   the 'Wild ��� Horse,  and so  far' as  development has  gone on the different   properties  the results are most satisfactory.���  It does not  need  a prophet   to  foretell the future  of  the   Port.  Steele district.      From   now.on  their will be an increased  interest in mining development-.   The  owners of .properties  will, take  advantage. of,;the-fall   weather  and go on wjth work.    On many  claims   work-   wjll   bo  continued  all winter, and the natural l'esult  must be increased   activity/ncxl  sonson. ' . '  ,     From Skookum Chuck.  W. J.   r>oylu  and' Jack-  Main  came down from   a   prospecting  trip to  Skookum" Chuck  a  few  days   ago^ bringing    with    him  some splendid specimens  of  ore  the product of that region.    The  ore is pyrrhofite carrying copper  and  gold.      Some  of  the speci  mens show galena.      M>.   Doyle  says, their operations were  con  fined principally to the west fork  of  Skookum   Chuck   known   as  Armstrong creek.      Seven   locations   were   made.      Mr.   Doyle  further says "It is the'besf looking  section   I   have  yet  seen in  East Kootenay and   1   believe  if  any  amount   of   work is\dono it  will   not   be   long   before   some  good tmines   will   bo   shown up.  'The leads  all   seem   to  be  well  mineralized and the iron capping  is in evidence everywhere."

It  i.s asserted that the work to be,  done, this winter will demonstrate |  that the Sullivan is one of the  big mines of East Kootenay.  Outside of the large properties  in that section there i.s a large  amount of work- being done., in  assessment work and development.  Assessment work- has ' been  completed on the Emma fraction and the Galore. These  properties have a fine surface'  showing and there seems to be  no doubt but the veins are a continuation of the Sullivan lead.  at the, head of the lake, near  Athalmar.

To realize that the war with  the Boers i.s a serious business  .even i'or brave British soldiers,  we have only to read tlie following' summary oi' the engagements  between :the same parties eighteen years a#o:  "I'lie war of I SSI was a  pitiful slaughter of British  ,->oldiers." The       Transvaal  was   then   under' direct   British  rule.    The Boers felt that  they  -were-mot    treated   justly    and  struck i'or freedom.   Within four  day.s after the revolt started the  Boers and British came together  at Bronkhorst Spruit. The battle  lasted ten minutes.     One  hundred and .fifty soldiers out of 2W  were killed and the rest surrendered.    The Boers lost not a man.  ,\t Laing's Nek, the  .">8th   Kegi-  ���  burnt attacked a force of  Boers.  The battle lasted a few minutes;  H7A Briti'sh soldiers were  killed,'  and the Boers loss was  reported  us "trilling".  All the regimental  iind most of,the company officers  ���ware picked off by the Boer rifle-  , men.  and  the ,regiment  retired  under the command of a lieutenant. / At lhe   Tngogo  river,   the  British,lost   Ind out of  the  270  soldiers   engaged.      The   Boers  lost nine'killed and eight wounded.    At the storming of Majuba  Ui JI by  lhe  Boers,   the  British  , lost in killed 220 out of 400 en  'gaged, the Boers losing one man.

IliM r  .'���'-   of  Jiurd times.   the   re-.-cni    hill    in  manufacturing     and    - liusiness  ability would find many oi theni  able  to  bear  it   without   being  pinched  for  the  necessaries  of  life.    It is the overconsumption  of whisky that makes the underconsumption of food  aiid  cloth-,  ing in this   land  of  liberty  and  liquor.     The    annual    bill    for  bread, meat, cotton and  woollen  goods  of  this 'great   American  people foots up a  total of oyer  $1,250,000,000.     But  its annual  bill for whiskey, and taxes thereon, is $1,400��;OOQ,000. -In  other  words,    it  unnecessarily  drinks  $1 LU. 000.000 more than it- necessarily eats and wears.     And the  people  who commit   this   folly  every year are amazed that once  in a few years they are hard up,  and some of them want, to  hoist  the communistic  red   ilag,   and  destroy  everybody else's property because  they  wasted  their  own share of  the   national   substance in  rye  juice   and   other  riotous fluids"  the door oi' hiT 'j tit- 'mi' remain.-  outside uidil invited lo cuter,  when Ti" 'bumper o1' brandy i.-  olfered lo the girl's father. If  he drinks it. it is a sign he consents to the girl's, marriage, and  the young man then promises lo  give the girl some clothes, and  pays a sum of money, generally  one hundred copper dollars,  .down on the spot. .- i  This of course is a remnant of  marriage by purchase, which, in  primitive times succeeded marriage by capture. Banns are  published once in Lapland, and  the marriage ceremony is very  short. The bride wears her hair  loose and hasa gold band around  her head.  Antique Cement'-Analyzed.  ���Samples of cement used iu the  antique water' conduits about  Kphcsus and Smyrna" were*' recently, subjected to chemical analysis and' the" various samples  were/found to be fpiit.e similar in  composition.      The  waterworks  from    which    the   samples'   of  ii < l  eenient   were   taken  were'con-.  .strucTed from   a, period, several  centuries  before  Christ"  to 'J(M)  "years after.    The chief, constit-  nenl oi',tho samples was carbon-  . i   �� i        ���  a.to. of lime,   but .mixed, with  it  * was from two to eight per cent  - of organic matter.    This was as-  ' certained to consist of a mixture  of    fatty   acids.      Experiments  were made with   fl.  cement  consisting'of burned lime and  olive  or  linseed  oil,   but  ii  was 'not  found to be permanent.     On the  other hand,   a  mixture of o two-  third air-slacked  lime  and  one-  third olive oil hardened   readily,  .and jiossessed great  endurance,  leading- to> the   belief  that   this  was the composition  of  the  ancient   cements   which .were  analyzed.��� lUtiliumj  it  .ICiit/iiieeriiKj  Iterieir.  fl  The World "Wants Copper  The  heavy   increase    in    Iho'  price of copper  has chiefly  developed since the close   of   IMdM,  through   the excessive   demand  continued throughout that year.  Tl/f consumption was exceptionally  large   and   the   world   used  more copper.,than   it   made  during that year.      This wa.s due in  j   part to general  activity   in   construction work especially shipbuilding uud the manufacture of  war material.       In a large measure it was especially due   to   the  universal extension oT electrical  work and thai i.s one of the main  causes   of   the   continued   high  prices and   activity  of demand.  'The present  stimulus  therefore  iu copper  discovery and   development i.s   not only maintained  by existing conditions,  but  how  this increasing demand ,is to  be  I, met in future is the question   of  supreme  moment   to  the  trade.  .��� It would-appear-' that  for  some  tiine to come the guest foi; fcqp-  ;per   will   equal   that  of  gold.���  yvjk-ncer Miuiiici Jle/iort-ei:. ..   ;  Geology and Mining:  Geology and mineralogy are  the scientific departments of the  mining industry and. cannot be  overestimated in their value to  those connected with its diverse  branches,   savs   the   Alining   &  "      i, --  Metallurgical Journal.     To the  prospector and   miner a   knowledge of the rock   formations  of  a district is the   unfailing guide  to him as to what class of minerals he Tiiay expect to find in commercial quantity.    The -same remark applies to  the  driller  for  oil and water.  ,  As certain min-  erals are known to occur in paying quantities in certain  classes  of "rock or associated with them,  so it .is  that   the   acquaintance  with the rocks a locality are the  key to what  he  may  expect  to  find.     The  days  are  past' and  gone when ignorance of the  relation which ��reoloify has io min-'  ing can   be  excused  bv stating  that'such-a part of  the  country  was made lale on   the  Saturday  night'of creation and that all the  mineral  left over  was' dumped  into that pari,'and consequently  the ..geology ,got  mixed.      The  more one knows of iho rock formation  of  a country  and  what  has been found in other sections  in'similar rocks,  the  knowledge  obtained will  be  the   means  of  saving much valuable  lime  and  money.    Wo may chance to find  a   valuable   mineral   when   not  looking for ii,  but   minerals  do  not occur  by chance: they  arc-  found in large amount where the  association or presence  of certain rocks make , it  possible   for  iheir  deposition   to  take  place.  The   larger   the  experience and  unore extensive the study one has  made of the occurrence of  min  oral deposits iind their adjoining  rocks,   so  in   proportion   can   a  possible forecast be made of the  future of a new discovery.    Alining geology is in its infancy, but  when labor and study have worked out tlie as yet unwritten Jaws  governing the sequence  of  mineral .  zones    found   in   di tie rent  parts of Hie world which   follow  the same order of   placement   or  occurrence,  then   lhe   formal ion  in which the vein occurs will be  the best guide  to   the   value  of  the discover}'.

The Queen was greatly interested in him when he   was   in  England,'and asked  him   in  the  course of a private  interview  if  what she had heard of him was  true���that he  did   not care  for  any woman.

He  is only  going to starl with a product  of  $10.0(10 worth of gold daily,   b'ui  it is a clear'case that by  getting  nine  more   machines   he   could  ' make it $100,<)()<), and   by  multiplying  those   by   ten   he   would  have    $1,000,000.

From Lake Superior to Liverpool.  The completion of the Sou hinges Canal now makes it possible  for vessels of l-i feet draught  to  load at  Chicago  and  discharge  their cargo at   Liverpool.   t The  Chicago Record of Saturday last  referred   to'the   opening  oT the  canal and stated 'it  was   now   in  order for some one  io  establish  a   line   of   .steamships  between  these two points.
