DODO   GROUP.
Wild
A   Promising   Property   on
Horse Creek,
The Dodo group consisting of
SEne Dodo and Keystone are locat-
,«l on the East Pork of Wild
Hearse, and are owned by Messrs.
Obl.lett and Starbird. Develop
meat work on tlie Dodo consists
of a tunnel 40 feet in length and
several open cuts. The ledge is
Ita?ly 200 feet from wall to wall.
'Yhis ore is a grey copper carrying; 117 ounces in silver, §18 in
g»M, and fi per cent copper.
Development work on the
Keystone consists of numerous
open cuts. Tlie ledge is the
SiMue as the Dodo, being an extension of tliat claim on tlie
south. These claims are situated within 1.5 miles of Port
(Steele.
Yukon and Klondike,
.Situated on the East Pork of
Willi Horse about three and
halt miles irom tlie forks. These
.claims join Hie famous Coronado
claim on llie north. Develop
me.ut work consists of an open
.cut -III feet in width, Jill feet in
leogth and 20 feet in depth. . At
this point the ledge is about 120
tot in widtli. The ore i.s a grey
popper similar to that found on
,i;he Dodo group.
On tlie Klondike a shaft is
down 20 feet, the ledge is of the
:tame width as the Yukon, and
ihe ore is of a similar character.
Mr. Collett returned last Monday from tlie Dodo group, where
he was engaged in preparing to
(irjiomonce work-. On Tuesday
hn left Port Steele with a large
outfit and a number of men.
We learn lhat considerable
work will be done this fall. It is
the intention of she company to
complete enough work- to crown
grant tlie property,
Another Strike on Boulder Oreek.
We learn tliat Goo. A. Kerr
has made an important strike on
lilie head ol Boulder creek near
the summit. Mr, Kerr says
that lie has fully sixty feet of
mineral between well defined
walls that can bu traced for several hundred feel. The oro is a
,ii[iia.rtz carrying copper and gold.
Will Develop the Little Mag.
Mr. E. .1. Walsh, 0. li, of Ot-
■Jawa, arrived at Porl, Steelo on
'Thursdays stago. Mr, Walsh
has acquired several gold properties on Perry creok, on whicli
.a large amount of development
work has been done, Mr, Walsh
,un Wednesday went to Perry
■creek to examine his mines, and
make tho necessary arrangements for work during the coming winter. At present Mr,
Walsh has 10 men at work on the
Little Mag claim.
THE ST. EUGENE MINE.
Will Commence Stoping", Concentrating; Then Ship.
The St. Eugene mine on Moyio
lake, west of Port Steele, is undoubtedly one of the greatest
.silver-load properties in the
world.
The St. Eugene group of
miues consists of the St. Peter and
.St Eugene, two full claims, and
thu Roso and Loretto fractious; both fractions making un
/area of about one half a claim.
On the St. Eugene and  St.
Peter the vein is exposed by
many openings on the surface
for a distance of 900 feet. In one
place on the hill side the vein is
all stripped for a distance of 1.50
foot, and shows a continuous
body of galena with an average
width of 0 feet.
Development work consists of
about 1200 feet of tunnels and
shafts. About 400 feet of this
work has been in ore, and has
yielded 1500 tons.
On the dump there is about
800 tons of first class clean ore,
and 700 tons of 2nd, class. The
first class ore will average 52 ozs.
in silver, and 68 per cent lead.
Stoping is now to commence,
and there will be at least 2000
tons of first class ore on the
dump ready for shipment in December, or as soon as the ore
bins are completed, and the side
tracks are ready for handling
tiiis ore. There are 14 men employed at the mine, and four additional men are at work completing a two and a half mile
water ditch, constructed for the
purpose of bringing water to a
concentrator, which will be built
early next summer.
A wagon road lias just been
completed from Moyie city to
tlie mine, and it is possible that
oi'e will be shipped as soon us
the railroad is in condition to
receive and handle large quantities of ore.
The country rock surrounding
this large body of ore is principally slate, most of il; the magnesiau
kind. In some places it merges
into a quartiiite of a tine crystal.
The hillside is intersected by
several dykes of diorite and
quartiiite. The course of these
dykes are at various angles to
tlie course of the vein. At one
point where the course of the
vein crosses a diorite dyke the
vein makes a turn and runs parallel witli the dyke for a short
distance. Tlie slate formation
is bedded Hat, and dips to tlie
east or into the mountain at an
angle of 1 "i degrees. The dyke
which carries the ore cuts the
formation diagonally, having a
course nearly east and west, and
dips to tlie soulh at an angle of
72 degrees.
Elk River.
Tlie Apache mineral claim is
situated on the south fork of Elk-
river, aud was located by W.
Redmond and T. C. Montgomery. Development work consists of a tunnel I Oil feet in
length, the vein is 20 feet in
width, lhi' ore is a quarts carrying copper and gold, mul lies in
a slate and lime contact,
Jusl across the Soutli Pork,
are located some 15 or 20 claims,
the greater portion of which
were located during the past
summer, Tho ore on all of these
claims carry coppor in more or
less quantities.

The complete returns show
that though prohibition has a
small majority, il was no! the
voice of the people, The silent
unpolled vote was larger than
the total vote polled for and

notable faof to be recorded was
Ihv total lack of interesl all over

The Pree Press suys:- •■The

of Quebec alone is such as would
make it impossible for the governmenl to force any federal law
to compel lhe destruction of

_ The Morning Post has an article from the pen of Mr. David
Christie Murray who says: "All
thinking, instructed lovers of
liberty, good order uml  clean
sober living will   rejoice   tu  see
prohibition definitely overthrown. Prohibition is the

From uur Own CoiTOhilotlcluilt.
Ottawa, Sept. 30,—Por the
past two or three weeks a wordy
warfare of more than usually
vit.riollic character has boon raging' Itetween the Globe and the
Mail & Empire, which is not
particularly creditable, either to
the competitors or Canadian
journalism. Calling one another
liars, skunks and horse thieves,
■does not prove anything very
(Conclusively, beyond, perhaps,
the fact that the quarreling couple have lost control of themselves, but at tlie
same time it must be admitted
I hat the Globe has had considerable reason for letting out at its
esteemed (?) contemporary. Por
very many of the statements
which the Mail & Empire has so
yrosistently reiterated, not only
in regard to the Globe but in ref
•ramce to anyone or any thing that
opposes its policy for the time
being, are.undoubtedly without
substantial foundation.
TWO POLICIES COMPARED
Take for example the matter
upon whicli the Mail & Empire
has wasted more space, recently,
than any otlier in Federal politics, except, perhaps its adulation of Sir Charles Tupper, and
that is the Crow's Nest Pass railway contract and the Globe's al
teged connection therewith. The
scheme as '.it lirst elaborated and
sukI accepted by Sir Charles
Tapper and approved of by the
Mail & Empire, was to bonus
the Canadian Pacific railway to
build the road at $5,000 a mile
with an additional loan of $20,-
f.W0 a mile, which monetary considerations were estimated to
be worth about $7,000,000 or
aver. In addition to this the
company had a monopoly of the
running rights through the Pass,
and the control over freight rates
and the cost of coal and its
transportation. The Mail &
Empire had no policy whatever
«m the question before Sir Char
les Tupper had endorsed the
project, as outlined above, when
tte Mail & Empire went into it
blindly and enthusiastically.
THE PRESENT CONTUACT
The contract as finally completed made a grant of $11,000
a, mile out and out, instead of
the $5,000grant, and $20,000 loan,
whicli, if the past experience
with government grants to railways may be taken as a guide,
would have been in tlie end a
straight grant of $25,000 a mile.
In return for tliat $11,000 the
freight rates are being cut down,
with the result that tens of
thousands of dollars that previously went to the railways are
now being left witli the farmers;
the maxim um price of coal has
been fixed by law, and the possibility of a coal monoply for ever
.destroyed; while an invaluable
guarantee has boen secured to
•fclie country in the free passage
for all future competitors ovor
this famous pass through the
mountains. Such is the difference between one scheme, accepted by Sir Charles Tupper,
and the other, developed wid put
into operation by the present
government.
Al.TMUNATIVE PKOPOSAI.H.
At tlie time this matter was
under discussion and occupying
such a large amount of public attention there worn alternative
schemes discussed, one of which
was the building of tiie railway
by the government, and tlio
other, the granting of a charter
to another company independent,
nf theC, IE I!. As to the first,
Canada's experience in railway
building has not beeu sufficiently
satisfactory to justify an extension of Uie experiment; and wilh
regu nl to Ihe second, the history
of llie past had been invariably
Unit the, lesser company would
lm swallowed by the bigger competitor before niauy moons had
passed, and the public would
suffer in proportion, so tlititpublic opinion finally gave unanimous support to the decision of
tho government and the necessary legislation was put through
both Houses of Parliament without a dissenting voice, in fact
there were members of the
opposition who were fully as
eager to complete the transaction as any supporter of the government.
NOW GENTLEMEN QUIT !
The private quarrel between
the Mail & Empire and the Globe
as to whether the Globe or those
closely associated with it, benefitted to the extent of $1,500,000
or l,500,000cents is not, under the
circumstances, of interelt; for
while, on one hand, the liberal
organ has emphatically, categorically and repeatedly denied the
entire accusation, and lias specifically stated wha5 it claims to be
the facts, the Mail & Empire has
never produced one iota of proof
or even attempted to impeach
the truth of the Globe's statement, and it would therefore be
the wisest course and in better
taste if the. inatter was allowed
to drop right here.
MISPLACED C30NF1DENCE.
The veneration and confidence
with whicli a section of Canada's
press regard their contempor
aries in the neighboring repub*
lie is surely a good sign of the
progress of the Anglo-Saxon alliance. Not a bit of sensational
"news" from Dawson, not a
charge against a government
official; not a suggestion thai
American lumbermen are going
to gain an advantage at Quebec;
not an expression of hope, that
Canada will be worsted before
the Cominniissio'n,, not an article of any kind in fact that
could prove embarrassing to the
government or harmful to the
country, but it is immediately quoted with good bold
headings on the front page
of one half of the ultra-
conservative papers of Canada.
It is hard to understand how-
self respecting journals of any
political stripe can thus belittle
themselves in the estimation of
their readers, but now the papers that such a short time ago
claimed an absolute monoply
of loyalty, patriotism and everything in tliat line, can now be
doing everything that may reasonably be expected to hurt the
country and her accredited governors, is simply beyond comprehension.
TIIE    SUCCESS    OF    TIIE    KALE
PAIUS.
Tlie general prosperity through
out tlie Dominion has been very
fully reflected in the fall fairs
that have beon in full blast for
the past two or three weoks.
Prom the great Toronto exhibition down to tlie smallest crossroads fair, there has beenthe most
distinct and gratifying advance
all along the line. Tlie extent
and variety of tlio exhibits have
increased, and what is more important the quality both iu tho
live stoclt and agricultural products is moasnreably improving
year by year; an ipdication that
the Canadian agriculturist has
the brains and quick wit to bone-
lit by the splendid opportunities
that are offered him by both the
Dominion and Provincial governments to qualify himself for tho
scientilic pursuit of his calling,
it is also an intimation that
Canada will be able to more than
hold her own in the markets of
the world.
A furthor matter for congratulation is the annually increasing
interest taken by the general
public in Ihese events, Nol, only

signed. I know that tlie Spaniards have come prepared to
make concessions, but if the
American instructions are of
au uncompromising nature,
which is generally believed here
to be the case, you can rest assured tlmt the work of the commission will be futile. The
Spaniards will retire and America will at least have to threaten

The French newspapers beyond announcing the arrival of
the commissioners make no comment upon tlio matter.

received uo word concerning the
reported death of the emperor
beyond the press reports, The
troublous condition of affairs in
China is exciting much apprehension here, mainly because
of the threatening attitude of
great powers and their readiness
to seize upon any pretext for
further encroachment on Chinese
territory. Following the return
of the empress dowager to power, a move thought to be in the
interest of Russia, a British fleet
has headed for Ta Ku for the

INFANTA MAMA
TEBESA AFLOAT.
The Favorite Warship of Spain Will
Take a Place In the American
Navy.
Plitytt Del Este, Guantanttmo,
Cuba, Sept. 20—The wrecking
companj' engaged tinder Lieutenant Hobson in the work of raising the wrecked Spanish Warships, lias succeeded in floating
the cruiser Infanta Maria Teresa.
The cruiser, after being floated,
was taken in tow by the Potomac
and convoyed by the cruiser
New York, the Scorpion and the
Alvitrndo, proceeded to Guan.tan-
tlffio bay, where she arrived last
night.
Tlie Infanta Maria Teresa hns
always been ono of the favorite
Tar.ships of the Spanish people,
possibly because of lier name.
She is nn armored cruiser of
7000 tons displacement, Her
-speed, when in lighting trim, is
believed lo be something over E'O
knots nn hour. It cost Spain
over $2,000,000 to build her, but
she was sunk by Admiral
Schley's llagship Brooklyn \ in
twenty minutes, Of the six warships Spain lost on that memorable day in July, the Infanta
Maria Teresa is the only one
that floats today.
Lieutenaiil Hobson is sure tliat
lie can save the (Jhristobal Colon
by the means of largo
•kic bags, in it week if
given authority to do so, Tlio
othor ships sunk in the battle of
Santiago arc useless  wreck's of

Turks to Louvo Crete.
ll()iiie,Sept.2l -Within twenty-
I' • hours Great Britain, Russia
Prance and lialy will append
their signatures to an agroemoiil
for the pacification of the island
of Crete, Including a plan for coercion of the Sultan into submission,
'f he scheme has for some time
been drafted, but its enforcement
was delayed to invite the participation of Germany, which
country declined.
At the beginning of the weelc
the four powers will send an ultimatum to the Sultan of Turkey
summoning him to accept the
project and informing him
that unless he does so measures
will be taken to enforce his
compliance.
Tho powers have irrevocably
decided to settle the Cretan
question immediately and will
not hesitate to send their lieets
to the Dardanelles and beyond
if.necessary.
UNITED STATES V. S. SPAIN.
Win' Is Not Ended Yet America

Europe's Diplomats.
New York, Sepl. 27—A Paris
dispatch says: Both the American and Spanish peace commissioners have reached here. On
Thursday M. Del Casso, the
French foreign minister, will introduce the members of tho two
commissions.
■It must be admitted that the
general atmosphere of Paris, especially tlie diplomatic atmosphere, does not incline towards
America.
It is the general impression
that lhe American commissioners have instructions to provide
for the retention of Manila and
lhe Island of Luzon, ''and for
such it commission to pretend to
negotiate is a farce," snid a,
prominent diplomat     Vou   nan
rest assured that the work of the
commission is tortile. Tlie Spaniards will retire and America
will at least have to threaten the
resumption of hostilities before
she will gain her point.
The American peace commission for the first time since its
appointment met as a body today
for two hours at the Continental

SATURDAY, OCTOBER «. l,S!)S.
THE SULTAN IS TRICKY.
Still Refuses to Eeoognize the Claims
Of the United States* Force
May Be Necessary.
The United Slates Minister to
Turkey, lias been unsuccessful so
far in securing the payment of
American claims on tiie Turkish
government.
The Sultan refuses to recognize these claims and denies liis
responsibility upon a plea that
is unsatisfactory to lhe powers
and the United Stutes. When
mural pressure is brought to
bear upon hiui, the Sultan declares that the damage was done
by a mob riot and that he is not
responsible. Indeed, he has actually rn!<*f the Rv-ronen.il powers
that instead of making claims
iifrai'isi liim, be ';.' entitled to ir
demnities from them becau_,
Europeans shot and killed Turkish soldiers from their houses.
The American claims are different from those of the Europeans.
"The property of the Americans
wus not,destroyed in a general
riot, but by soldiers who were
in*.I to guard that property and
who were consequently tlie
agents of lho.' Turkish government,
An armed demonstration is
possibly the only moans whereby the Turkish government can
be compelled to mnke the restitution asked for.
The Sultou is a man of bright
ability, possesses greai shrowd-
ih ss and plays his policy well of
pitting lho Jen lousy of one nation
against another. His power
over his subjects has increased
wonderfully. Tliere will be no
religious win' in Turkey while
the powers are watching.
The Sultan has an army of
1150,0011 well ei|iiippedmeu. They
have been drilled to modern tactics by German officers, and their
weapons are of the most improved and modern make.. The Turkish navy can be best, described
as a till). He often speaks of
American battleships and guns,
and may possibly order a ship or
two if he can raise tlie money to
pay for them. A I: present he is
bankrupt.
al, which expects In chronicle
the official reports nf the battle
of Armageddon, hardly hopes to
record anything hereafter which
for pure impudence will exceed
this occurrence. The only thing
that could rival it would be for
another ensign to send a district
messenger boy to Sagasta with
an ultimatum to be answered
in 1") minutes.
The Duke Made n Hit.
The D ii Ice of Coimaught has
been through the .French army
manoeuvres around Moulins,
which he attended as president
Faure's chief guest. He first
distinguished himself by a
splendid display of horsemanship before the French staff,
when it borrowed horse, startled
by the firing, tried to bolt,
roared and fell. The Duko skilfully disengaged himself unhurt. On the following day.
during the halt, he minutely
examined the French soldier's
knapsack, He had one emptied
on the ground, weighed the ar*
j tides and finally took the knapsack, strapped il on his shoulders and walked np and dowu in
front of the president and gen-
| orals iu order to test whether the
[Straps hampered his movements.
I The spectators were greatly
I amused aud the private soldiers
loudly cheered him.
Yesterday the Duke of Con-
j naught visited tlie French camp
; kitchens and. following the
i great Napoleon's precedent,
j asked to be allowed to taste the
soldier's food, remarking: ■ -'I
must only take a tiny niorsal as
I am robbing somebody's share.''

Canadian's On Top.
The Toronto Telegram is a
strong advocate of the principle
of Canada for the Canadians. It
tritely says: British Columbia's
new Government includes four
nat'ves of Canada and one native
of England. British Columbia's
old Government was made up of
four Englishmen and ono native
of Canada, the Hon. D. M.
Eberts, Attorney-General. This
change from an overwhelmingly
English to an overwhelmingly
Canadian Government is indicative of the growth of the Canadian element in British Columbia's
population. Eastern Canada is
tilling up British Columbia, and
the Canadians in the new Government will have a chance to
show that their supremacy is an
improvement   upon the doniin-
portion of the American fleet at I ation of the English born rulers,
' who have been justly supplanted."

Death of Mrs, Burgess.
One of the saddest bereavements it has been oui' sorrowful duty to record this year is
that of Mr, E, N. Buraess who
lost, on Monday last, his young
and amiable wife. Mrs. Burgess,
who came to Fort Steelo with
her husband last year, was of a
retiring disposition, and highly
esteemed by all who had been
fortunate enough to make her
acquaintance and win her friendship. Her husband and. little
family have therefore the sincere
sympathy of all such, and indeed of the whole com in unity,
in thoir sore bereavement, Hor

proceeding from a cold and complicating her confinement, which
had taken place on tlie 21st,
