Telephone!.
Arrangements have been made
to bring tho material for the
telophono service round by Kootenay Lake, theneo over the C.N.
tote road from Coat River. Tho
first piece of work will bo tho
.stretching of the wires between
Fort Steele and Swansea, aftor
which the lino will bo radiated
from this point to the outlying
mining camps, Mr, Quiiiii, the
local manager uf the company,
bus leased the building formerly
occupied by Dr. Watt, where ii
is proposed to establish the telephone exchange. Mr, Quain expects that early nexl season
most of the points outlying irom
Port Steele will be connected.
This undertaking involves a
good deal of work', which, when
completed, will make this city a
must valuable connection, Mr,
Quain has sent forward for much
additional plant which will be
required for a service much more
extended ihan that which the
company originally contemplated.
CAN'T HAVE THE BRIDGE.
Because  There are Other Works  Of
Creator   Urgency.
Last week The Prospector
noted thai a delegation of lead-
citizens had interviewed Government Agent Armstrong urging the necessity of build in*,'a
bridge across Wild Horse Creek
at a point near tho Indian Office,
so as to avoid the necessity of
school children und others making a detour of 2 or 8 miles to
cross by the present bridge on
the Government road, At thai
time Mi*. Armstrong thought the
bridge would cost about §1,000,
and he thought that the Government would accede to his recommendation in the matter. Since
thai time Mr. Armstrong hns
communicated with the delegation as follows:
"Since our interview of lhe
3rd instant, I have carefully examined the site on which you
have asked that a bridge be constructed over Wild Horse Creek.
I cousider thai it would require
a pile trestle of 250 feet, an approach on the north of 000 feet
of sidelong road, and on the
south a road close lo the base of
the bank for a distance of 2,000
feet. I estimate ihal these works
would cosl about §1,265. f am
sorry to say that I cannot recommend the expenditure of so
large an amount for this purpose
until other works of greater urgency have been executed.
In the meanwhile I will as
soon us n definite channel has
been funned have a temporary
bridge erected at the present
ford."
Thus, then, it is to bo presumed there can bo nothing hoped
for in the way of a satisfactory
bridge lhis winter, because if
the Governmenl Agent waits for
a "definite channel" over whicli
tu throw n "temporary bridge,"
it is to be expected that its usefulness will be gone before it is
constructed, A curious public,
too, might ask what are tho
"works of greater urgency" to
which the Government Agent
refers?
The northern boundary of the
Cripple Creek (lold District has
been extended '.' miles by the
discovery, on Cupper mountain,
of an immense blanket vein of
ore, running from §10 to $1,500
per ton in gold. The gold lies
near llie surface, and is mined
with a plow and wheel-barrow.
Freight rates from Fort William and other points on the C.
P.R. to Montreal have been reduced from IH to 90 per cent per
100 pounds.
The Grand Trunk and C.P.R.
lines are having a rate war lo
catch the Klondyke trade.
Presidont Van Home announces that tho C. P, R. will build
directly into Rossland.
The Canadian authorities ot
Dawson City have ordered all
people in the Klondyke who
have an Insufficient supply of
provisions for the winter to go
to Porl Yukon, -lllll miles tlown
the river, where there is a stock
uf 1,00(1 tons of provisions. Provisions at Dawson are running
short, and those who remain
without their own supplies will
risk absolute starvation.
The Ottawa UiUmt has been
purchased by Southam of the
Hamilton Spectator.
MINING NEWS.
Progress Shown By Development in
the Camp.
Tin' tunnel of the Dodo on
Wild Horse is iii 45 feet and the
showing of ore is fine, Preparations are now being made to sink
a shaft on the Klondyke an adjoining cluim. Messrs. Starbird
and Collet! evidently have a rich
property in this group uf claims.
Amine and VanArsdaleii have
the tuiint'l on the Cornucopia
nuu* driven in In feet, and Win
Bossio who has just returned
fruiu the claim states that tho
ore is rich looking and abund
ant and the general appear-
anco magnilicient. The ore body
is iron sulphursttes carrying
gold, silver, copper and lead,
and will be valuable as an ingredient in the smelting of the galena oresof the dislrict. The ore
body i.s perhaps the must, extensive in the district,
Hon. Geo E, Poster has purchased two additional claims in
the Dibble group, and now owes
nearly all the claims that surround Dibble's original location.
Nexl spring a large force of men
will be put on.
The Wasa group of claims on
Wasa Creek, owned by William
Thompson, William Haupt, Pete
Rosendale and Erie Suiidran,htis
been bonded to Henry Croft of
Victoria for §20,000, cash at the
end of (il)'days. The bond was
signed on Monday last.
The Ureal Western mine in
the Rossland camp has been sold
to the C. H. Mcintosh syndicate
for §100,000, of which §25,000 is
cash, the remainder in January
next.
The smelter returns of the Le
Roi show thai the ore irom that
mine is now averaging 1.54
ounces in gold, about four per
cent copper and in the neighborhood of three ounces of silver,
making a total value of about
s-lo. The numerous surface improvements lately undertaken on
tlm mine are now completed, and
Captain Hall, the superintendent, is well satisfied with the
shape tilings are in. Operations
have lately been commenced
stoping oro at the 100-fool level.
In the original development of
the mine little attention was paid
to the ore a! lhis level, and a fine
reserve remains almost untouched. The west drift at the BOO-
foot level is now in about 225
feet, antl the ore body, whit i> is
from seven to 18 feet wide, is
showing up most favorably.
Stoping will .soon be commenced
un this level. Notwithstanding
he heavy drain on tho mine,
amounting to §25,000 to §30,000
monthly, paid out on the construction of the Northport smeller, the property continues lo
pay its regular §50,000 dividends
monthly. The smelter will be
in running order by January 1,
antl then work will be resinned

Crow's Nest Railway Obtains r,
Gradient.
During ihe pasl couple of
weeks Engineer Burns and stall',
of the Crow's Nesl Railway,
have been ai work locating a
line for the railway into Port
Sleele. Two lines have been
run, each of them bringing the
track uii to lhe west bank of the
Kootenay River near where the
bridge crosses. The line will
be nearly seven miles long, and
I he gradient we aro informed ouly
a trifle over one per cent.
It is nut improbable lhat the
depot, when decided upon, will
lie placed within a hundred
yards or so of the western end
of the bridge, This location will
afford a good sile for wharves
on ihe river from.
The line inlo Port Stoele will
be i/ery easy of construction, no
rock or heavy earth work being
encountered. The line beyond
Porl Steele anil up the Sl. .Mary's
River will be ihe next work 'if
location to be undertaken. .Vol
unlikely the crossing will be
made al the high bluff about a
mile and a half from ilu- city.
The route up llie SI. Mary's
River,   after  the Hat is crossed.
will afford very easy gradients
and comparatively light work of
construction,
Crow's Nes. Trouble.
At Mueleod lasl week Ibe appeal case of the Crow's Nest.
Railway against contractor Keith
came up in the Supreme Court
before Judge Ruieaii. The Macleod Gazette gives the following
report:
"Proulx, respondent, v NE
Keith, appellant.—Proulx represented a number of employees
who left the service of Keith,
and sued in the magistrate's
court for wages alleged to be
due, when judgment was given
in his (Proulx) favor. Keith appealed from this co-eviction.
These men had been employed
under a contract made between
them and the Canadian Pacific
Railway company in Hull, P. Q.
Nothing was said in the contract
about transport alion to Macleod.
Proulx swore lhat the man who
hired him said that they would
receive free transportation, (.hi
the other hand it was shown thai
tlie man who employed them was
not the agent of the C. P. R. It
is contended that the C. P. R.
acted as Keith's agent in employing these men, and that Keith is
liable under llie contract as the
undisclosed principal, Tlie case
lasted all Friday, and until nearly seven o'clock on Saturday
evening, when the judge reserved his decision, and adjourned
court until the next term."

A very nice point i.i Involved
in Ilic question ns to tho amounl
of succession duties to be paid
iby the Cawthra-Mumty millions
io tlm Ontario Government, Il
lies In a provision Hint when an
estate is loft to the testator's
heirs the succession duly shnll
be but live per cent, If it goes
lo other than heirs the duty is
ten per cent. Young Cawthra
Miilock, who inherits the larger
part of the estate, Is the sun of
tin' niece of the testatrix, His
mother i.s living, nnd the point
.nt issue will 1»' whether, undor
the provision mentioned above,
tlio Province shall collect 5 per
cent or twice thai amount,
Young Cnwllirn gets So.OOO.OOO,

ci' age, by which time it will
' probably reach 810,000,000, Mr,
Mulock wns u nephew of the late
.Mr. Citwihi'ii. the founder of
ihn fortune, Mrs, G. R, Ryor-
son, -st, niece, and hor husband,
Dr. Eyerson, M. P. P., and tho
children of Mr. James Cawthra,
« nephow of deceased, will get
§50,000 each. In case young
Mulock dies boforo ho is 21 years
of age, the inonoy goes to his
father and mother,

lain niosli. To the ground oros

the thorough mixing or churning

taken out nml moulded Into any
form desirable und is left to dry,
which takos but n very short
time. Aftor the bricks or slabs

being enlircly porous, the chemicals permeate the bricks and,

How not to over-do a good
thing, says the Western Mining
Worlil, is u lesson yel to bo
learned by some mining men.
Not long since a minim*.* property
in Oregon was sold for a consideration of $750,000, but just before the deal was brought to a
oloso the purchasers learned
thai the middle men who wore
steering tlie trade to a conclusion were to secure a rnke-otf
of $250,000. This made them indignant, as well as suspicious of
true value of the property,
In 12 years 2,500.1 iiiii square
miles ol'territory 12 times the
area of the Gorman Empire
have boon added to lhe llrilish
possessions, Aro wo not going
too fast with our acquisition of
territory'' Wo sny nothing of islands, because the navy cun look
aflor them: but we have lidded
2,600,00 square miles to our territory, as Mr. Brodrick admits,
in 12 years. We nro going, it is
suid, to keep the Muhdi's wide
dominion, including in the end
Diiri'iir; we linve jusl added 500,
(ion square miles to our African
possessions Nupe, the region is
called—and we nro now engaged
in operations on the Niger, which
1 moan, if they succeed, that wo
are to be predominant in Sokoto
and Bornu, two empires as big
iis Germany. All ibis, in addi-
I tion to a proposed annexation of
1120,000 square miles upon iho
Indian frontier. If we are not
j Creator Englandors, there nre
none; nnd we, moreover, contend
liiiul wo nre bound to do our
share in giving Africa a chance
| of good government; but there
ure limits tu everything. It is not
only that we nre overtaxed by
the necessity ol' holding down
such masses of territory, but
that we cannot nml do not discharge our first obligations to
their Inhabitants. There nre ut
least a million square miles of
ilio Queen's dominions within
which, it n iiinn is murdered, or
a woman ravished, or a child
starved, hut we givo no redress,
lis thnt right?
nnd they refused lo tuke it, preferring to forfeit $25,000 already
paid. Middlemen are a race of
people more or loss necessary to
maintain the proper equilibrium
of civilization, uud thoy should
be permitted to out regularly,
but whon Ihey reach out after
such compensatory foes as in
this case a little paring of the
linger nails will do no harm.
We are indebted to tlio sun for
light by night as woll as by day;
for warmth within doors as well
as without. Strolling through a
lown lil. by Innumerable lamps,
or whirled along at the heels of
a locomotive, it is a pleasant
thought that the emanations of
suns which rose und set millons
of years ago -which rose and
set in soeining idleness, and to
nil appearance, in wasted splendor— nre now reproduced to enable us lo cope with darkness or
conquer space with darkness
or to conquer space without
moving a muscle, There Issoine-
thing captivating in the thought
thai llio grout rector inuudi was
working for us when as yel there
was no sign of iiinn indeed, no
promise of his coining - and wilh
quiet, patient labor laying up
trom day to day those treasures
of light and heal which are in-
linilely more valuable to us
lliaii all wo possess. No one who
has studied geological processus
can repress a feeling of surprise,
perhaps of .impatience, at the
slow, deliberate step with which
nature ever marches up to her
goal, But when we think of the
sun toiling in lonely splendor to
store our planets with fuel—we
had almost said with his own
embodied beams— it seems to
reconcile us in somo degree to
the august and awful chronology
of the universe.

will be particularly gratifying to
Col. Baker and his accomplices.]
Henry Rhodes, of Denver, has
a patent for "an Improvement in

Ottawa Free Press: "It i.s lobe
presumed thnt Mr. Turner, the
British Columbian Premier,
would not have lout his name to
a mining operation without good
knowledge that he was justified
iu doing so. It is clear that his
action savors of the indiscreet in
certain financial quarters in London, uud this is to be regretted
because nothing could lie more
disastrous to Canadian interests,
if anything like suspicion should
be excited thero. Tho Dominion's reputation i.s, at present,
very high in Britain, and we
would seem able to obtain all the
money asked for. Our good
credit must nol bo shaken, Some
remarkable schemes have been
floated in London of late, in
which the Klondyke has been
made an attraction, and, though
Sir Louis Davics raised a warning
voice when he was in London,
there will, doubtless, be yet more
and more heard of. ll is regret-
able Hint u loading London paper
should refer to this Turner Company in terms of suspicion. It
says: 'When Premiers turn promoters, wo appear to be iu full
view of turning the universe
inlo u limited liability company,'
and adds that the only assets of
the Dawson City Trading Corporation seems to be Mr. Turner's
name, and that the prospectus is
'spectacular.' The company only
needs $8,000,000. Such a sum
would not only ruin hundreds of
people, tint the transaction would
nave u very fatal moral effect.
We repeal Hint it is to be hoped,
for lhe credit of the good name
of Canada, Uml the high commissioner will keep his eyo on
all schemes floated in London
and affecting tl e Dominion."
One cause of the rapid appreciation of lead is because of the
high price of wheat and corn and
the abundance of crops, for every
farmer can now paint his house

could not accopl such un offer,
The Canadian Government had
already arranged fur uu abatement of duties on British goods
to llle extent of 25 per cent, illld
as the whole fulirie of Canadian
finances, as well ns Canadian industry, was founded on customs
duties, ho could not for a moment consider a proposition to
remove them with one blow.
The reply of Ihe other Premier
was not referred to here. ttuf-

Sir Wilfrid's reply thnl he would
not touch with tongs the subject
of a preferential tariff on any
other basis Ihan Ihal of absolute
free trade between Great Britain
und her colonics. These are tho
facts, nnd this is the sort of arrangement thnl Sir Wilfrid is
being daily denounced for not
accepting."
Analyses of weapons and tools,
dating from very ancient limes
in Egypt, linve convinced M.
Berthelot, the French chemist,
that the old Egyptians used pure
copper in the manufacture of
of such objects. Thoy displayed
much ingenuity in manipulating
that metal, A chisel was made
by folding thin strips of copper
over ono another and then forging them into n solid blade,while
hollow needles were formed
from copper leaf by a method
very similar to that which is employed at the present dny in making helical tubing for bicycling.

ihe country for the country's
■food; their room would bo more
profitable than iheir presence,
because their actions are detrimental lo the progress of the
Province, When men thut menu
genuine business travel through
nnd see stllkes on every hand,
they do nut stop to soo if such
locations are legally made but
quit the country in disgust. This
is not imagination but hard fact,
and thi' sooner lho laws relating
to tlie location und recording of

Another thing that has most
forcibly struck me has boon the
iippurnni Indiflerence of the people and want of public spirit in
the administration of the affairs
of the Province, except iu such
matters us directly atTect the
individual pocket, My opinion
is thut the public could huve the
affairs of the Province managed
and conducted by gentlemen who
would cheerfully do the work for
lhe honor's sake, aud leavo out
entirely the consideration of
"filthy lucre" and self aggrandizement. Otlier countries do il,
why not this? It would be better served (certainly not worse)
and its advancement would be
rapid und sure. 1 have travelled
in many lands but have seen
none wiih the natural advantages which British Columbia
possosses, but of which Europeans have next to no knowledge.
In fact British Columbia with its
•100,000 square miles is only
known as a place on the map
with plenty of mountains and a
plethora of snow. And what
has your Government done to

A VISITOR'S IMPRESSIONS.
Editor Prospector: Sir,—
After having travelled over 2,000
miles amongst the Rocky and
Selkirk ranges during the last
five months, my impression is
that East Kootenay has a magnificent future before it. 1 wns
informed that this country possessed very little laud suitable
for agriculture, but during my
wanderings I have soon immense
areas of land on gentle slopes
admirably adapted for farming,
then' being here plenty of running streams suitable for irrigation on the lands referred lo. As
for the mineral wealth, by the
Indications I have seen, not a
thousandth part i.s known of the
immense possibilities East Kootonay possesses, but as might be
expected in a new country, the
development is carried out in a
half-hearted manner and it appears to mo that tbe country is
likely to sillier permanently
through imperfect laws or tho
loose manner in which the same
are carried out. With regard to
staking out claims, hundreds of
square miles are staked as mineral claims simply on the showing of float alone and many not
even that. Many, loo, are staked
iind loft unrecorded even where
there are good indications, ll
sooms to mo that many prospectors only use an axe und pencil
for a short time then return lo
Steole and lay around on the oil'
chance of selling such claims as
the lirst and second mentioned.
Such  prospectors  might leave

We quite agree with the following' opinion expressed by tho
Rosslander: '*The suggestion that
the Northwest Mining Association smut an exhibit of minerals
to the Pai'is exposition of 1900 i.s
a good one, but the advisability
of West Kootenuy or British
Columbiii joining with Washington is to be questioned just now.
The ownership of the mines ou
Slocan and Quartz Creek, is
gradually but surely passing
from American into Canadian
and llrilish hands; in general
the quality of lhe ore is different, and tlie districts represented in the ore exhibit would lead
to confusion in tlie minds of lhe
spectators. Washington ores are
not British Columbian; the laws
are dill'erent, in fact they have
little in common except proximity ol situation, and there is no
good reason why Ihey should he
exhibited tngether."
The destruction of llie forests,
largely through carelessnoss in
letting out lires, says the Kaslo
lioiili-niiiiin. is having ils effect, us
seen in the earlier and more frequent slipping of the snows. Already this year slides have come
down in places where the snow
was never known to slip before,
Por two years the slide curse has
been on the increase, and it is
plain that unless something is
done to stay tho destruction of
timber, a few years will see the
abandonment of some of the high
properties, to say nothing of the
deteront effects and tho increased cost of timber for mining
purposes.
