HARNEY  QUINN'S OPINION
OK EAST  KOOTENAY.
Development in That Section Is
Both Rapid and Encouraging.
LOCATIONS       AUK       NUMEROUS
Largo Shippers Are Talking pf
Erecting Thpip Qyp Concentrating Plants.
Barney Quinn, who has spent
(he last four months in tlie Fort
Sleele mining district, furnishes
some interesting information relative to that country. He
says:
"Mineral locations have been
mado along Ihe Kootenay from
Elk river, npar the International
boundary, to Golden, on the
Canadian. Pacific railway. Tbe
counlry abounds in mineral, free-
milling epiurtz and high-grade
galena. It is certainly an interesting district and one well worth
visiting. The ledges in the district are usually large and of excellent grade.
"To give a complete account
of tlio country and its mineral
resources would bo a difficult
task, so I will confine myself to
mentioning a few mines in a
number of which Spokane peoplo
are interested,
11 Commencing at the St. Eugene mine, on Moyea lake, This
property is owned by John A.
Finch and James Cronin, The
workings aro now in solid galena
ore and from what can be learned
it is of splendid quality.
"At the North Star mine in
the silver load district the development work is still going on and
a large amount of ore is being
extracted. Tho steamboats have
been unable to handle the output
It is probable that some time
next season tho company operating the mine will put in a concentrator, Ono hundred men will
be employed on development and
in extracting ore this winter.
Tlie North Star is the most thoroughly developed mine in tho
district.
" Tlie Sullivan group is owned
by tho Lo Roi boys of Spokane
and has a big surface showing.
A contract has boon let to sink
Kill feel on tbe property. The
properties aro located north of
the North Star mine.
" In tho same vicinity lies tlie
Midnight, upon which 13. C.
Kingsbury of this city litis a bond
The showing on this property is
a good oiit'. Kree-milling gold
quarts! has been discovered on
Perry oreek. The discovery has
created considerable excitement.
Upon one of the properties there
is a tunnel in 50 feet. On Wild
Horse creek the Invicta company
and tho Nip & Tuck, owned by
English syndicates, are working
their Placers Oil a large scale.
"The Dibble group, back from
Port Sleele, is now under bond
lo Chisholm Bros, of llozoinan,
Molilalia, Tho oro curries both
gold mnl silver ami will run from
$150 lo ¥200 U Ion. The bond on
the properly is 820,QUO and ex
plros this month, Tho owners
expeel lo ship enough ore lo pay
the bund.
The Dnrihincllcssituated aboul
in miles North of Port Steele, is
ii free milling proposition. The
owners nre now working an urns-
Irn with good resnlls.
"The Lilly May is located lo
miles northeast from Port Steele
The mine is owned by Spokane
parties. A contract has been let
for III" feel of work. The owners contemplate the erection of a
stamp mill in the spring.
'• Doherly's eUt'in in the same
vicinity is developed with a B*J
foot tunnel. It is a I'ree-nii.Uing
proposition,
"My own locations in tlie distinct are llie Lady Anno group of
four claims. There is a six-foot
ledge with throe foot of solid
galena. I have let a contract to
sink 20 feet.
" Some splendid ore has been
uncovered on the head of Tracy
creek. Some of the claims show
four i'eot of solid galena.
" The report of the Windermere district are to the effect that
many of the locations aro showing up well."
" How many locations aro there
recorded in the district ?" Mr.
Quinn was asked.
"I think it is safe to say 500.
The recorder told me recently
that tlie locations this season far
exceeded those of last season,
"Fort Steele is the supply
point for till that district. There
are three general merchandise
stores, three hotels, one blacksmith shop, two barber shops
and two meat markets. The
population is about 350, but dur
ing the past season there has
been a largo floating population.
"Tho government has built a
trail from Fort Sleele lo the summit of the Solkirks to connect
with the trail to Kootenay lake.
This will be of advantage to every
ono who may desire to go across
the country,"
Mr. Quinn will probably return
to Fort Steele in the course of tt
few days,—Spokesman Review.

Thu Spokane Fruit Fair will
have the reproduction of a mine
at work, Men are constructing
a tunnel, in all "0 feet in length,
on the south side of the buildings,
'adjoining the Auditorium. It
Tvill lead directly into tho main
building, where the drilling con-
tost will take place, and at the
other end will be a chamber,
where men will be constantly employed jn drilling, thus affording
a practical object lesson in quartz
mining. Outside and connected
with the tunnel, which will be
five foot wide nnd seven feet
high, the walls of basaltic rock-,
will be a shaft, 115 feet deep, from
winch ore from Hie Lo Roi mine
will be hoisted every day. There
aro now two carloads of ore on
the Spokane Falls k Northern
railroad track for this purpose.
In addition hi this an artificial
placer mine will be operated by
the hydraulic process. Inside
will be a mountain and to high ten
, the effect native cedars, pines,
'tamaracks and furs will be
placed in position, giving the
mine the appearance of genuine
workings, so far as possible to
represent it artilically, even to
the natural moss. The design is
unique, and the fruit fair management anticipates that the mine
will prove one of tho most popular attractions on the ground.
M, Brophy an experienced
Hydraulic Miner of 25 years in
California and British Columbia,
who has been up to tho Inviota
Hydraulic mine for the last two
months in charge of the Monitors
by night, was in Steele today on
his return to tho O'Kaiuigun country, water giving out piping by
night has ceased. He is returning
to tako charge of prospecting a
Hydraulic mine for London parties in the O'Kanagan district.
Speaking of the Invicta Hydraulic mine he says he considers
it a good mine under proper management, undoubtedly will prove
to be. a dividend paying one.

Late Particulars of the Wreck of
tho Gunboat Itlis,
San Francisco, Sept. 27. While
a story of the sinking of the German gunboat Itlis had already
boen told, the Doric, which
arrived from the Orient yesterday
brought additional particulars as
to the death of all but eight of
the crew. After the vessel struck
on the roof near tho promontory
and began to break up, it was realized by the officers and men
that no human efforts could save
them. Tho majority of the crew
were gathered aloft, where Commander Briuin and the ollleers of
the watch and Lieutenant Prasse
were standing on the bridge. At
the moment of the gravest danger, the captain gathered the
doomed crew about him and
culled upon them to give three
cheers for the emperor. They
were given with a will, and, waving their bills at the Hag Ihal
floated over them, Ihe brave
sailors showed tholr lldolity to
Ibe fatherland and took a farewell of life.
While Ihe cheering was going
mi, llie shi|i broke in iwo near

Andrew B. Hendryx, manager
of the Kootenay Mining and
smelting company, owners of the
Pilot Bay .smeller and the Blue
Bell mine, has just executed an
order which means that tho smelter will not be operated this
full, at least not by his company.
When thesmeltor closed down
last May it was wilh tho purpose
of cleaning up, making some ini-
provinents. and resinning again
at an early date Throughout the
summer a large force of men has
been engaged in malting bricks
foi. an additional stack and a
proposed refinery. Wednesday
Mr, Hendryx appeared at Pilot
Hay. discharged the entire force
and closed down all works, leave-
ing only watchmen on Hie premises. He makes no statement beyond that the smelter will be
closed for an indefinite period.
This of course means that the
I Hue Bell mine will not lie worked, as it must depend upon the
I local smelter to treat tin. low
grade ores.
There is no new developments
in connection with Ihe supposed
negotiations for Hie smelter by
the Kansas City people.

Hie National Matte Smelter,
One Kvil of Bonding,
i'lie Slocan is full of men who
wish to obtain control of good

The prospectors should develop
their own properties, and make
deals for wish. Tliu bonding
l.pi'oeess gives the capitalist too
much of a chance lodaniu a. mutt's

A practical, cheap and simple
method of mulling sulphide ore,
such us nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities where
lead ores and fuel are scarce und
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Mutle Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to no
tons por day. It is the simpliost
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating that
is known to-day,
ll roquiros no extraordinary
skill, no lend ores, no fluxing
material, and nofuol for llie smeller niter it Is started, The sul-
phor in the ore is its natural
fuel only, und its cost' has no
comparison with any othor process of concentrating.
We ui'O prepared to furnish any
size or capacity plant complete
to substantial mining people, set
it up and furnish our men lo rim

Iloi'se-shoi ing A Special iy < CHOW'S NEST PASS,
d'he (Hi ibe Urges its Construction
ITUMi:    CONTUOl,     NECESSARY
Canadian Wholesalers AreUnablc
to Compete in Kootenay
siderable share of  the  trade of
Kootenuy "
The Globo also refers to tbe
question editorially, and while
pointing oul the desirability of
this construction ol the road as
soon as possible, urges lhat no
monopoly of the pass be given to
any one railroad, For the Gov-
erninenl to build and give for all
would in its opinion be doubtful
wisdom. Some moans could be
devised, il thinks, to retain public
control of the pass, Somo who
have gone through the pass slate
that there is room enough nl the
narrowest point for four railway
tracks,
A special correspondent to the
Toronto Globe, in his letter which
deals with the transportation
facilities of Kootenay. After
pointing oul that tho trend of
trade is southward, across the
boundry line, he deals with the
Crow's Nest Puss railway proposition, setting forth some very
convincing reasons why that
work should bo carried through
with all convenient expedition.
He says :
■' Tho one question universally
asked here is, "When will the
Canadian Pacific build the Crow's
Nest Pass Railway ?" Nothing
else would assist so powerfully
both in continuing the rapid development, of the country and in
enabling Canadians lo compote
on fair terms with their neighbors for the'trade of Kootenay.
Its advantages would be numerous. In the lirst place there
Would be all rail communication
with the oast, and if Ihe new line
went through to some point near
Hope or Mission Junction, with
the west also. Various new sections of the country would be
opened up, including East Kootenay, believed by many to bo as
rich in mineral wealth as West
Kootenay; and the Okanagan
district, which the line will touch
at Pendleton, and various other
districts, such as tlie Chilliwhuck
yalloy on the west and Eiluionton
district on the oast, placed within
Comparatively easy reach. But
imo of the most important fen-
lures of the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway would be Hie supply of
eoal it would render available,
there is an abundance of coal in
the pass, which is at present useless. Al present much -of the
coke and coal used here is
brought around from England
and Wales by way of Cape Horn,
this is not so surprising as it appears lirst, when it is remembered
Hint vessels bringing this coke
and coal are content wilh the
lowest freight rates, sometimes
evoii bringing it as ballast, their
principal mission being to take
return cargoes of lumber and lisb
from Vancouver, In Ibis way
they tire enabled to compote nl
ninny points with coke and coal
from Naiiiiiuio. The English
coke is frequently quoted a little
higher tlinn coke from Nanaimo
coal, but liuds purchasers nevertheless, owing lo the faot that a
third more ol the coke is necessary lo securo tho sumo results,
The cost of eoal, however, is very
high, usually running over "J20 a
Ion. Willi eoal from the Crow's
Nesl Pass, llie price will almost
ho cut in two. This would again
reduce the cost ol smelting, make
profitable the reduction of a lower grade of ore, hasten tho establishment of smelters, and generally quicken tbe development
of the whole Kootenay district.
"Wm. Whyle. general superintendent of the western division
of the Canadian Pacific, was here
reconlly looking into tlie railway
question,    I understand it has
been decided lo build as quickly
as   possible   from   Rossllllld   lo
Kobson, wlilcli would somewhat
shorten the distance lo Hie main
line, und would give dll'OCl   rail
way connection with Nelson.
This is very good us fur us il
goes, and llie line from here to
Nelson would be no doubt an Important and proiiiiible section of
llie larger line to Lolhbt'idgo,
through the puss. Ilul if the
through line i-, not built, eastern
Canada need not look lor any eon-
I APAN'S BIG COLD DEPOSIT
A curious element of the monetary situation is Japan's, gold deposit of 111,000,006 .'nthe Bunk
of England. This has largely
increased Ihe bank's stock of
gold, but since it. may bo withdrawn at any moment it is uot
available as a gold reserve, but
is hold in the vaults for safekeeping. What the Japanese government intends to do is a mystery.
If the navy is to be straightened
it will not leave England. Lombard street has heard a rumor that
Japan being a silver country intends to keep a gold reserve in
the Bank of England and issue
paper currency of ^22,000,000
against it; but this report is not
believed, The Japanese deposit
under tho existing conditions is
simply luid subject to future d
nuind and does not increase (he
bank's gold reserve, Another
feature of the monetary situation
is Hie increased production of
gold in south Africa, where, after
a protracted period of political
disturbances, the Rand lias surpassed all previous records.
by il letter just received from lite
young inaii il appears tliat (lie
whaling ship was wrecked as
slated in Hie Arctic Oeeiin, near
the mouth ol ibe Mackenzie]
river. Another whaling ship of
ihe Heel sent a boat to the wreck
and took off some of llie crew,
but as the reselling vessel was
short of provisions, she could not
lake all the shipwrecked crew,
and young Simpson and five
ojhors were left oil Ihe ship.
Thoy stayed on llie wreck till
their provisions were exhausted,
Mid as no oilier vessel appeared
to succor them they were at last
forced to set out in the desperate
indeavor to reach the land.
Thnn.. of them starved to death
on the journey, but young Simpson and two others survived and
managed lo reach the shore.
Prom the mouth of the Mackenzie river, where they landed,
the three survivors set out to
traverse tlio 1,800 miles of wilderness which lay between them
and the nearest settlement in'
British Columbia. This tremen- j
dous journey took them up the
Mackenzie river to the Peace
river, up the Peace river, through
the Peace river puss of the Rocky
mountains and across the wilds
of northern British Columbia to
the coast, but they succeeded in j
accomplishing Hie distance in
safety.
At the coast young Simpson
found employment in a salmon
canning establishment, and by
the lirst mail from tlie nearest
post office ho sent to his family
in Dresden the letter whicli gave
them the welcome news ot hisj
safety,

Tlie shaking of the ore body in
tlie Campbell .tunnel of the Stan-
ilard mine, in the Cofiur d'Alenes
has more significance than at
first appears from the brief announcement contained, in the dispatches yesterday. It means the

pf men for many years, and the
expenditure of hundreds of thou
sands of dollars in payment for
labor.
This tunnel is in 2640 feet, and
is 580 feet tjelmy th Banner tunnel. The or" body was ascertain it to be ~e. feet wide at
! he point where i' was encountered i:i the tunii. This was at
the end of the chute, and it is expected to widen out to. 20 feet.

with throe shifts of eight hours
ouch. There is evy indication
that the ore body oxlends 500
feet or more below 'ho tunnel.
The ore is ol tho same grade
as that in the op; r workings.

P. Aug. Heinz, readied Rossland on Monday night, after returning from a trip to Europe in
the Course of which ho spent the
most of his time in London, bul
was on the continent a few days.
Speaking ut railway construction, Mr. Heinze said that nothing would be dune until the
spring. Just now all tlie financial men in London are awaiting
the result of the United Suites
presidental elections. Though
Canada may not be affected by it
directly, yet indirectly business
is done through American linns, j
They all state that if Byron is
elected president of tin.' United
States in November, probably
the greatest financial crisis in recollection will follow. Never
has there been so much cash accumulated in London as at the
present lime, and all for the reason lhat people are afraid to put

The Papazo Indians inhabit a
country of broad plains. With
mountain ranges between, says
tlie Baltimore American, Tlio
mountain ranges are remarkably
rugged, and rise sharply from
tlie lowlands, All over the plains
live the Indians. 'I'lie country is
one of the most arid regions on
face of the globe, a whole year
passing sometimes without a drop
of rain. Tlie streams rise in the
mountains, but never reach the
sea, and the debris carried by
the rivers, instead of finding its
way lo the ocean, is spread out
upon the plains, the rivers drying
up before Ihey reach the sea.
