two miles west of stations 81 and
82, on the St. Mary's trail from
Pilot Bay, is being worked by a
tunnel and cross-drifts. The
owner, Mr. W. P. Bolding, has
out a trail two miles in length to
the mines! the ore hotly consists
of a vein four feet in width.
In the tunnel the ore is solid and
of shipping value; the ore is a
copper pyrities, assaying IB per
cent, copper, 10 ozs. in silver,
and $2 in gold, It is reported
that the owners refused a bond
of $6,000 on the property.
Hew Strike on the Oopper Grown.
A vein of rich copper ore was
Struck on the Copper Crown
which promises to be rich in
grey copper. Concerning the
how discovery Mr. E. 0. Jennings says, that the tunnel is
now in some 12 feet, and the
vein is about six feet in width,
and carries copper, gold and sil-
tou1.; but we must do more work
before we can give a more de
tailed statement, The property
is situated near the bald moun
tain at the lower entrance of
Isadora's canyon, and within 500
feet of the Crow's Nest railway,
and  about  4 miles from Port
-Steele.

The tunnel on this property
is now in 320 feet, with a good
showing of gold quartz. The j found traversing this contact in
lead is the full width of the tun- j every direction. Large bodies

Wm. Violet and J. W. Wheeler have located a block of 14
claims on Quartz Creek. The
contact on which the locations
have been made, runs through
the district, from Elk river north
to, and through, the Windermere
district, and varies from a mile
to two miles in width. The formation is lime, slate, granite and
porphyry, and large veins are
over 1,000 feet of tunnels and
drifts.
Some beautiful specimens of
free gold quartz from the Big
Chief claim on Boulder creek,
was on exhibition during the
past week at the Prospeotok
office,
Assessment work is being done
on the Emerald claim, which is
an extension to the Last Chance,
one of the Dibble Group.
Mining Locations.
Over 1,000 mining locations
have beeu made in the Goat river district during the past 12
months.

slates that a tunnel will be started at a distance of 000 feet below the present tunnel, which
will tap the vein at a depth of
500 fuel.
Estella, Tracy Oreek.
The tunnel on this property is
in. 500 feet, and it i.s expected
that il: will have to be continued
some 80 feet before striking the
main lead. Several rich streaks
arid small veins have been cut in
running this tunnel, It is possible tliat before the snow flies
that the Estella will become a
shipper.	
At Moyie Lake.
Work is being carried on, on
the Moyie and Queen of tho Hills
jti: Moyie, every stroke of work
done is improving tho properly.
A recent open cut made on tlie
south ledge, developed a -1-foot
rein of .galena, and about of the
game value as that on the north
ledge. While the cross-cut iu
the Bossie tunnel shows IE) feet
of solid ore, and uo foot-wall in
sight yet, It is expected that
this ore chute can be tapped at a
lower level, as it is traceable for
some distance. The Company
bopos to be able to ship ore, immediately transportation is assured by the completion of the
raihvay.
iv The claims due oast from the
St Eugene have improved wonderfully, the ledge on the Society
Girl showing four feet of galena.
There is not a doubt now, but
that Moyio is destined to be a
first rato miniug distriot, as the
•remarkable ledges of silver-load
i,ii that vicinity have been developed for over 10,000 feet.
A small ledge of asbestos has
been located near Moyie, but its
commercial value, at present, has
not been ascertained; it seems to
have a fine fibre, and from three
to six inches in length. Samples
have been sent east for trial and
inspection.
Quartz creek are very promising;
the ore carries copper, gold and
silver; there are at least eight
different leads running through
these claims, having a width of
from 8 to 40 foot. We learn that
these claims were located last
year, but for some reason, lhe
yearly assessment was not done,
and they reverted hack to the
Government.
Pyramid Creek.
Mr. Dighby, representing the
Pyramid Copper Syndicate of
London, England, was in town
on Monday and purchased a
large amount of supplies. The
Pyramid Group of claims, which
the Syndicate are working, are
situated on Pyramid creek, a
tributary of St. Mary's river.
We learn that supplies can be
got into the St, Mary's river
district much cheaper from Port
Steele, than from Crawford Bay,
as tlie charges for packing from
the Bay is oc a pound, and from
Port Steele only 24 cents. We
learn that the syndicate will
work a force of meu all winter.

South East Kootenay. One-

The late rich strike of gold

been the source of much comment during the past week.
Tho ore has attracted the admiring attention of all who have had
tho pleasure of inspecting it.
The vein is said to be from li to
12 feet in width, with a small
pay streak that is very rich.
The average of a largo number of
assays gave a value of §317, in

ASSASSINATED 1
Austria's Empress the Victim of an
Assassins Stillstto.
The Empress of Austria was
assassinated at one o'clock on
Saturday, Sept. 10th., at the
Hotel Beau Virago, near Geneva,
Switzerland, whither she had
gone on a visit and for recreation. The murderer is an Italian
anarchist named Luecheni who
was immediately apprehended
after the deed. Her majesty
was walking from the hotel to
the landing place of the steamer
when the assassin, approaching
her* from behind, delivered the
fatal thrust near the heart. The
Empress arose however and
walked aboard the steamer whore
she fell fainting in the arms of
her attendants. She shortly
expired. All Switzerland is
stunned with horror and grief.
Although the Empress travelled
to Geneva incognito, lhe police
were instructed to use every precaution for her personal safety.
Tho most regretful feature of
the calamity is that tho criminal
code of the canton of Oonvou, forbids capital punishment; life Imprisonment being tho most sev-
oro penalty which can be imposed upon the murderer, The
Empress, wife of Francis Joseph, Emperor of Austria and
King of Hungary, was the
daughter of Duko Maximillian
of Bavaria. She was born Doc.
24, 1837, married April 24, 1854,
to Francis Joseph, by whom she
had three children.,
Steadily the Anglo-Egyptian Forces
Vent Ahead,
London, Sept, 4,—The Daily
Telegraph issues a special edition with the following details
of the movements on Wednesday and Thursday, telegraphed
from Nasey;
This (Wednesday) morning the
Anglo-Egyptian troops began
their advance iu three brigades,
side by side, with a front a mile
wide, the army giving the impression of ii vast square, Our
cavalry occtipied Jcbel Sheikh
Pail, three miles ahead, at 0 o'clock, aud an hour later our infantry had arrived at the banks
of the river which was flooded
at that point, fully a mile on
land.
Here tlie force halted while
the gunboats proceeded. The
camel and cavalry corps trotted
forward, but only a few scouts
wore seen, under command Of
Abdul Bti-ki, a Dervish emir, who
fell back rapidly without, a con
lest. In a village we passed t
number of charred and mutiltit
ed bodies of natives suspected of
spying, and killed by the Der
vislies, At: 7 o'clock- the Maxims
lired a few rounds scattering a
body of Dervishes in the bush,
Thon there'wits tt lull until noon,
though the cavalry and camel
corps were several miles iii advance. The gunboats signalled
that 500 Dervish horsemen were
moving west upon tlie Egyptian
right and the lancers in the left
trotted to intercept the enemy,
the camel corps supporting, But the Dervishes
slipped back- to their camp in
the bush, a mile inland. The
lancers advanced through the
hill passes and got within a mile
of Korreri. Then officers advanced and discovered that there
wore many Hags in the Dervish
camp. They were fired upon
and eventually tlio entire force
returned to Sur Urab inside the
Zereba,
Gunboats Shelled the Camp.
During the afternoon the gunboats shelled the Dervish camp
for several hours, apparently
doing much damage. A number
of Dervishes who had lied to
the bush to escape the shells
surrendered during the evening.
Among the refugees wero the
sheikh of Kerrerl and grandson
of Khurshid Pasha.
This (Thursday) morning in
spite of a rainstorm, which continued all night until 0 o'clock to
day, the army advanced at 5 o'clock and found Kerreri deserted, The lancers on the ioft and
the Egyptian camel and cavalry
on the right, advanced six miles
ahead of the infantry, which
marched into a square.
The lancers got within a milo
of Omdurman and saw the dome
of the Mahdi's tombs, Kubbol-El-
Mahdi, Tuti island, palm trees
of Khartoum. The tomb is not
on Tuti island, but in the center
ofOimlurnian, the Dervish capital.
Drawn up in live divisions,
with a wing thrown back, was
tlie khalifa army, its spears and
swords glistening in the sunshine, arrayed northwest of tho
town in tho desert. In the con
tral division was an enormous
number of banners, including
one of blue and one of black, A
number of mounted Dervishes
galloped forward and our dismounted troops Hred upoa them
lilting several and driving off
the remainder, Two squadrons
of oui'cavalry pushed to within
800 yards of the enemy, who
then advanced, our lancers and
the Egyptians retiring, The
gunboats are now (Thursday
afternoon) bombarding tlie forts
at Omdiirmaii and Kartoum.

The Royal Oity Razed to the Ground
In a Single Night.
News has just been received
here, that the Royal Cily. "New
Westminster" was completely
destroyed by tire on Saturday
night Sept. loth. How the tin'
started is a mystery, but it i.s
presumed to Imve found its
origin in the market sheds on
the water front. The fire was
communicated to .several river
steamers moored to thi* wharves.
One of these set free communicated llie Haines to lhe lower
part of the city, whence they advanced inland us a solid wall destroying everything in ils path.
The rapidity witli which it spread
is al most unexplainable. Details
ace meagre, and information on
Hm point is unobtainable ut this
time, Relief expeditions have
been sent from Vancouver.
The City Is In Ashes.
The city of Now Westminster
is no more, from the Cathedral
lo the Royal Cily Mills, nothing
remains but smouldering ashes
anil crumbling walls. Only in the
direction of the Penitentiary and
Schools, which buildings are the
only important ones saved, were
there any residental properties
standing. No loss of life is recorded, In view of the number
of homeless and destitute, caused
by the fire, appeal has been
made to tho city of Vancouver
for immediate supplies,
"UNEASY LIES THE HEAIV
Attempt to Slay the Czar of All the
Bussias. -The Newly Crowned
Queen of Holland the Target of
an Assassin,
Last week a dastardly attempt-
was made to assassinate the Czar
Nicholas on his visit to Moscow.
Gas was allowed to escape into a
house on tlie route of the Czar's
procession until every room was
saturated, One of the conspirators was lo remain in the house
and strike a light as the Czar
passed by, expecting that the
house would be blown to pieces
anil the Czar killed. When the
explosion occttrod a staff officer
and his wife who wore driving
past were killed, Thirty others
were seriously injured Including
ono Kohiiio'f who prematurely
lighted tho mulch; the Czar was
uninjured.

Ottawa Lettor.
1'rimi Om* Own Correspondent.
Ottawa, Sept. 3.—There seems
to bo a misunderstanding in some
•ipjarters as to the attitude of
the Liberal press with regard to
the Administration of the. Yukon
and the alleged wrong doings of
Government officials there. It
is; claimed that the papers sup-
fMH.'ting the Government are de-
■daring that the policy inaugur-
.»!.-«] and being carried out by
the Minister of the Interior is
perfect and could not, under any
•eottdiiions, be inproved, while
with regard to the officials, the
Eiiberal papers are represented
*a -declaring them to bo absolute-
i-y without blemish, and indeed
paragons of virtue far above the
-»erage mortal.
To my unprejudiced reader,
■who has taken the trouble to
watch the discussion, it is scarcely necessary to point out that
-•Share is not a semblance of truth
aa these statements. Supporters
mS. the Government are fully
ajiive to the fact that so little has
tefcherto been known of the conditions iu the gold fields, that
-stay form of Government must
•necessarily be tentative and ex-
gef imental and that the greater
knowledge gained by the experi-
■usaee of today, may naturally
modify and even reverse the
policy of six months ago. That
individual or minister would be
worse than a fool who would
rafuse to be guided by experi-
rtne.es. What is claimed without
hesitation or reservation is, that
an honest effort has been made
ivt put into force the best possible form of government under
i*;fce circumstances, and the manner in which law and order have
hmvt maintained, and the lives,
jiraperty and material interests,
,*kf the heterogeneous population
tewe been protected, is unique
m. .the history of mining camps,
and is sufficient answer to the
.critics.
<ot:akgbs   against officials.
As to the charges against the
rttffi.cials, the position of the Lib-
(«-a,l press has been just as wan-
iSfiSttly misrepresented. It is not
•.feeiifld that their has been wrong
.ifttiug, there may, or may not
Mwe been,.all that is claimed is
;-%a,t the evidence so far to hand
its mf such a character that any
■.satisfactory decision, or even
■safe opinion, can be arrived at.
The Winnipeg Tribune, which
fta* been actively quoted and
■widely endorsed by its Conser-
Gsktive contemporaries in the
■©nurse it has pursued in this
matter, puts the case fairly
♦saiimgh when it says: "The
«rgans of the Tory machine have
isteinsed upon every report of dissatisfaction with almost savage
,*jtee, and whether the subject
matter seemed to warrant it or

HBjMrts the text for virulent onslaughts on the Minister of the
iMorior. In the mind of the intelligent and unbiased reader

undoubtedly a sound one), that

fact that the
year ending June 30th, last,
which witnessed tn increase of
about #4*1,000,000 in the trade of
Canada, was the year in which
the operations of the preferential
tariff brought us nearer free
trade than we have ever been
before. . This will not be denied
by the ultra-protectionist, for
his main criticisn was that the
preference intended for the Empire alone, was benefiting a score
of other countries, as well. It is
no new experience for tho protectionist to exei'cise his iuge-

theories,—here is another opportunity for hint:

ns to tho attack

goods are appraised accordingly
to the price list in the hands of
the checking clerks, and when
a merchant pays duty on an invoice he submits, it is always
with a clear understanding that
he will be liable for further
charges if these invoices are
found, when compared with the
price list to be under the schedule valuation.
It is not creditable to Canadian journalism that these unfounded attacks should be so
frequently made upon the personal integrity of Ministers of
the Crown.

Something ovor four years ago
he was elected to the British

indentified himself with the then
opposition party. He was reelected in the general elections
a few weeks ago, and the former
cabinet having failed to obtain
a majority in the new House, is
succeeded by a new ministry led
by Mr. Semlin. In the new
Government Mr. Hume, as the
despatch indicates, has been
called to the importan; position

to his personal worth and political standing in the Province.
Mr. Hume, who Is less than in

SATURDAY, SKPTEMBER IT. 1898,
.1  .Vill' DISPENSATION.
There wits once a time when ;
man considered the  earth   tin-
centre of the universe and  himself the most important object
in it.    There was once a time:
when the prominent fictions of
the present day were llie re- j
vered truths of the past.  There:
was once a time when you could '.
make a  man believe diamonds
could be quarried  from  sand-
dunes and that blessings could i
be derived from the mere kissing |
of blarney stones.    You could;
theu organize a company to. fish I
for pickerel   on  the mountain j
tops or to take stock in a scheme
to raise Atlantis from the soa.
Since then his .system  has received several rude shocks of experience.       Panics,    poverty,
privations and printing presses
have conspired to make him less
credulous anil more skeptical until today he is demanding reasons
and proofs whore before he complacently acoopted results in advance,   Such is man iu it general
sense, but il. must not be assumed that there arc no special varieties which lend zest and amusement to the  race.     They  are
found    disseminated  over   the
world, but in the interior of Africa and remote parts of Asia they
actually form  tribes  and even
tuitions.    In this country they
can still be found cultivating the
desert  and  engaged   in   transplanting pine-apples to the polar
regions.   They turn tlie wheels
of the slock exchange,  or are
harnessed   to  the  corporation
chariot   which  drives  through
tlie wilderness scattering with i
inane prodigality the seeds of
towns,   smelters,   square    and
round  houses,   machine   shops]
aud factories of all sizes and de*!
scfiplions.   The first sprouts of
these fantom industries may not
be apparent to the   inquisitive
but they are there just tlie same, j
for if you bo in doubt there iis
the assuaging voice of the town-
site agent lo re-assure you.
If for instance you should ask
what reason exists for a town at
.such a point they might answer
and convince you that the
country round about is flat and
beautiful. As for smelters: well,
they are usually established for
the behoof and benefit of tlie
town. It, makes no difference
where the fuel or ore i.s located
nor are their relative amounts or
admixtures to be considered.
The railway will bring all these
things together and many others
too, We must have an lw stall
smelter equipped wilh the latest
style jackets aud built upon such
a principle that il may lie added
lo from lime to lime As for
wafer, modern science has made
lliul. an insignificant factor to
lirsl class smellers. What wc
lack in that respecl we will make
up in the vast population whicb
will naturally he attracted to
lhis town owing to its superior
merits thus creating an enormous demand for beet' and pop
factories, ft Is bound to como,
Now it is a popular fallacy flint
smelters usually require serious
dumping grounds aud privileges.
We have convenient to this town
a mammoth cave which could lie
appropriately used for such a
purpose. We have not mentioned this cave before, not, as some
may' think, on account of nny
consideration of modes y, but
simply because we did n it wish
to increase lhe animosity of our
contemporary across the river,
lu fuel so favoured arc* we by
nature iu this respect that we
are seriously considering tlie advisability of placing the entire
smeller under ground, The
smoke could then be carried off
in subterranean pipes and sn
give lis an immense prestige
over such places its Swansea.
Butte and Pilot Bay where the
smoke must be shoveled oil
twice a week.
Our ten story round-house is
another industry whicli fixes the
destiny ol the place beyond dispute. Ou account of its shape
alone it will require a small
army of skilled laborers lo
handle it properly. Some have
supposed that this being the
cheapest one per cent, grade
ever discovered it, will require
but one engine to handle the
business. .SEicb people have
only a very limited knowledge of railroading. Why the
numerous branches which will
center here will require at least
a baker's dozen, and as many
more can oe employed iu pulling
freight iu the forty-seven miles
of yard already plotted. In
reality this is no town butacity-
•a metropolis ! Nine lloors of this
round-house are already spoken
for and we could have let out tlis
tenth were it not to be used for
a waler tank. The advantage
of this arrangement is, that
the locomotives, when idle,
can be used to pump water, which
will be raised not only 501) feet,
but to a tempei'ture of over 300
degrees f'abrenlieit. This will
give the city the advantage of
hot springs, and who knows but
lhat some day wo may establish
here the greatest sanitarium on
earth. This magnificent structure—which will be a perfect
poem in tlie Collodian and Punic,
order of architecture—can be
Hooded from weathercock to
basemput in three seconds. On
those occasions everybody who
has made a second payment on
his town lot will be given a
shower bath free.
Yes! we will have machine
shops here; there is no doubt
about it. The country demands
it. The plans just adopted, involve the repair and manufacture of everything iu and on
wheels. You can get a new set
while you wait, which will also
entitle you to a position on-the
voters list, as we intend tp have
everybody who patronizes us
properly taken care of, regardless of sex or previous condition of servitude.
Competition must and shall be
met, and special inducements
offered.
Anyone who can find a mineral
claim—witli raw ore in place—
within fifteen miles of the round
tower, or rather within the city
limits proper, will be entitled to
one-half, and can have it cooked
free at ihe aforementioned smelter. And the discoverer of two
or more claims will receive a
crown grant in lieu of assessment work, with the privilege of
leaving town anytime he so
elects. This system insures a,
steady, permanent, industrious
population,
We intend to show that Solo-
man was entirely wrong when
he said, "there is nothing new
under the sun," His ei:y waxed
greal. with gold and precious
stones from opliir and galconda,
but he knew nothing of railroads,
smelters, and the like, Indeed,
Ihe earth WAS then Hal, hut
since il has recovered ils sl ipe,
new things have occasionally appeared under the sun, and the
building of a, new Jerusalem,
even in Kast Koolonay, has heen
rendered quite feasible.    Those!
I who have boen* watching   Ihej
I progress   of development from
the old standpoint, will observe j
the new experiment with keen
Iinterest, and if if  be successful;
we will apply to the next Dominion parliament; for a charter to

NOTE AND COMMENT. *
Hewitt Bostock. M. P , leaves
today, Sept. 2nd, on a visit to
Boundary and West Kootenay
districts. He will return in time
to be present at the Agricul
tural exhibitions in this district,
at Vernon awl Ashcroft. Kant-
loops Sentinel.
We are informed that it is Mr.
Bostocks intention to visit East
Kootenay this fall; it is possible
that Mr, Bostock may at this
lime extend his trip lo this dislrict.
Tho Times supplies a letter
tliis morning 'from Andrew Carnegie who advocates the ex-
) change of Ihe Philippines for
the Ilritish West .Indies, urging
that England and the United
Stales should retain coaling
stations each alul the open door
should be preserved to both by
treaty. "Such project", says
Mr. Carnegie, "would naturally
be dependent upon Ihe assent of
both population, but this assent
seems probable,"
Ottawa-Judge Forin of Kootenay is hen-). He lind nu Interview with the Minister of Justice. It is said Judge Forlh
would like to go on lho Supreme
court bench. The appointment
of a new judge to the Supreme
courl will be made in a few days.
The Minister of Justice is ready
to recommend an appointment
to the council.
A special dispatch from
Shanghai says: "Thu Chinese
Government troops, it is reported, in two pitahed battles during the. last ten days by tlie
Kwltn Si rebels, losing 8,000
men. The rebels are said fo
nuiifber 00,1100, and the provincial forces are powerless against
them."
The correspondent of the
Slil-mlilI'd al Coii.-#llutiiio|ile,says:
"M. Ki'oiipoiisky, of the Russian
^Embassy here, will succeed M.
Pavloff. retiring Russian charge
a'all'uires at I'ekin. Russia, it is
said, bus given satisfactory assurances  thai she will respect
the British sphere in China. It
is also asserted that the British
admiral had orders to seize the
remaining Chinese ships and custom houses in China iu the event
of the Tsung Li Yamen refusing
to comply with British demands."
M. Cambon, the French ambassador at Washington, is here
on a visit to Lieut.-Gov. Jette,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier dined with
them at Spencerwood last night,
Hon. Mr. Mulock arrived here
last night and is to hold a consultation witli tlie Premier,
Kingston, Jamaica.—Tlie annexation movement has not progressed favorably owing to the
opposition of the colored element of the population and lack
if support from tlie newspapers,
Consequently Hon. Samuel Constantino Burke, Jamaica's member to the Barbadoes conference,
who sailed yesterday; is not
authorised to propose annexation as an alternative lo the joint
demand of tlio West Indies for
fair treatment. Possibly Hrilish Guiana or lho Barbadoes
may tnlce initiative, should the
conference decide to adopt a
decisive ultimatum attitude.
Effects of the War.
London—The Times devotes
an editorial to the discussion of
the effects of the war upon
American commerce and
trade, It thinks the present
hopefulness of the American
people in this respect is not unreasonable, and says that, looking at the marvelous expansion
of exports the contraction of imports and tlie movement of
American bonds homeward there
is irrofragoablo evidence of the
country's growing wealth. The
Times cautions English investors, however, to remember that
the silver party iu America is
still potent for mischief.
rect from San Francisco, In an
interview Colonel Donby said:
"In my opinion China will never
be dismembered among'the great
nations, as I don't think that
England, the United States and
Japan will permit it."
Colonel Denby said that tlie
Chinese trade of Russia, France
and Germany was small iu comparison with tliat of England
and the United States. Both
China and Japan, Col. Denby
said, favoured the retention of
the Philippine Islands by tlie
United States,

SATURDAY, SEPTCMBKE IT, 1S08.
HOW BRITAIN INTERVENES.
When the  Interests  of Cousin  Jonathan are Threatened.'
London The Spectator suys
it has reliable information that
M. lliuioiaux, late French Minister of Foreign Affairs, had designed a plan of intervention between Spain and the United
States, which he in turn proposed to the continental powers.
The latter agreed to the proposal, and it was presumed that
Great Britain would also assent,
The French Government heard
with the most undeigned surprise, however, that the only intervention England would par-
iE'Eate in would be that of
placing her fleet at the disposal
of the President of the United
States.
New York—Commenting on
the above, Mr. Ford, in his cabled letter to the Tribune today,
says:—
•'The optimistic Spectator is
not satisfied with explaining that
the British Clovernuieut, when
approached early in the spring
by M. Hanotaux on the subject
of European intervention in the
Cuban affair, gave warning tliat
it would place its Heel at the disposal of President McKinley. It
also goes to the length of advocating in a lending article the
abrogation of the Clayton-Bul-
wor treaty, hy which England
arid America shall mutually-bind
themselves to allow no Government except that of the United
States to make or control any
canals across tlie Isthmus between North and South America.
"This article even goes beyond
Mr. Blaine's famous letter to Mr.
Lowoll on the Canal question,
over which Lord Granville quibbled, and the English press
raged and imagined vain things,
17 yews ago.
"Tlie Spectator's article, wliich
deserves to be printed in large
type in every American newspaper, as a convincing demonstration of English friendliness,
if acted upon by the Foreign
Office here, would remove the
only serious question remaining
unsettled between the two
countries. It would leave the
Suez and Nicaragua canals subject to the general principles of
regulation in peace and war,
with one under the control of
England and the other under the
control of the United States."
The Battleship Renown.
The Rt. Hon. J. Goschen's last
naval programme includes the
building of several large battleships, larger oven than those of
the Majestic type, but though
there are probably twenty battleships afloat, that exceed the Re
nown in size, it. is thought by
those best qualified to judge that
for general efficiency and all-
round work the Renown i.s as
useful and as good a ship as the
the. British navy contains. Several vessels have borne the name
of the Renown lor the last lot'
years, bul. the one thnt is the
flagship,of the North American
tleel, the latest to be put into
commission, is n revelation iu
the Qinbocllmenl of all lhe latest
improvements, the result of
knowledge obtained from a study
of recent naval engagements and
the teachings of experience. The
Renown is a very radical departure from the ideas thai prevailed
in the British navy a few years
'ago, when battleships of the
| admiral class were being built,
I She has a displacement of 12,8*50
I tons against 10,000 tons for the
Canipyrtown and other ships of
I admiral type, yet she carries a
much lighter armament in her
main battery and much thinner
armor. The Caniperdown and
her sister ships have 18 inches
| of steel on their sides, while the
I Renown carries but lli inches of
side armor. The admirals have
in their torrents four Ill-inch 07-
ton guns, while the Renown's
largest guns, which are also four
in number, are but 10-inch 20-ton
guns. Here we have a startling
difference in woight of armor
and armament, and there might
seen)' to be some ground for
alarm were it not for the fuel
that the men who designed the
Renown were not amateurs, but
|close students of lhe problems
I of naval warfare. The 10-inch
jguns of tlie Renown are of wire
and their penetrating power is
as great as tho IE-inch steel gun,
although thoy weigh in the aggregate lol tons less. The liar-
I veyized steel on the sides (if tin
Renown is harder and more
difficult to penetrate than the ordinary steel-armor whicli was in
use when the admirals wore buill
and the secondary armament of
the Renown is more powerful
than that of the Camperdown and
her consorts. The latter carry
six 5-ton guns. 12 ti-pounders
aud " 3-pouuders quick fire;
while the Renown carries ten six
inch quick-tire guns, eight 12-
poiiuders, ten fi- pouuders and
12 3-pounders, all quick-tire. The
latter iu five minutes could discharge 2,300 projectiles, weighing 37,000 pounds, from the guns
of her secondary armament, or
more than twice as many as the
Camperdown could discharge in
the same length of time. The
designers of the Renown evident-
y anticipated the teachings
of the war jusl, ended, for it was
shown that the smaller guns
which tire rapidly and which
drive the crew of the enemy
from their guns, are the most
efficient. The old idea that an
ironclad could be struck by a
heavy projectile on the water
line and sunk has not proven to
be anything more than a possibility in actual warfare, and it is
hardly worth while to construct
a ship's armament for the purpose of carrying out this idea.
The contrast between the American battleships and the Renown
is very great. The Oregon is
the ship of which the Americans
feel proudest, and she is certainly a line vessel, but she is overloaded with big guns. She is
2,000 tons smaller than the Renown, but her armor is thicker
and her guns are heavier. Besides four 13-inch guns in her
torrents she has eight 8-inch
guns, four 6-inch and twenty 0-
pomider quick-fire guns. The
Oregon in five minutes could tire
from her secondary battery 1,032
projectiles weighing 27,000
pounds, against 2,300 projectiles
weighing 37,000 pounds from the
Renown in tho same length of
time. Thus the Renown would
be the more efficient ship as regards gun tire besides being faster by at least two knots than the
Oregon. This comparison illustrates tlie change that has taken
place in the views of tho best
naval experts since tho American
ship was designed, it may be
safely assumed that the noxt one
built by our neighbors will be
larger, less huavily armored and
will carry a far larger number
of quick tire guns, even if the
main battery has lo he reduced
to enable this lo be done.

Our friends and neighbors along
the railroad who are making
efforts to build towns and smelters on roseate promises and
fresh air, might note with profit, that over seventy per cent,
of all the mining locations made
so far in South East Kootenay,
are on the east side of Hie Kootenay river. Over seventy-five per
cent, of all locations are included within a radius of twenty
miles from Fort Steele. It is
truly the entrepot for the entire mineral-bearing zone. That's
why we are''• here, neighbors.

Progress on the Kailway.
The rails on the Crow's Nest
Extension have, at this writing,
been advanced to a point
40 miles west of Moyie City.
There is no doubt but that the
Kootenay lake terminal of the
road will be reached by the first
day of October, thus practically
completing railway connection
between Duninore on the main
line, and West Kootenay points.
Speculation as to the exact location of the' terminus on Kootenay lake, is rife, but as usual
the C. P. R. aro keeping the
secret within .the magic circle.
A revelation of such a character
would spoil all precedent.
Wherever it may be, it will be
the diving board for Nelson and
surrounding country, until the
road is completed around the
southern shore of the lake.

The contract for lighting the

Capital at Port Steele.
It is with, great satisfaction
that we note the steady investments in mining properties in
tlie Port Steole district during
tlie past two mouths. The conservative mining prompter and
capitalist whose readiness to invest in the mines of* this district,
now that ample transportation is
afforded, is the most practical
endorsement of the great wealth
of tiie mineral resources of this
district, Within the past two
months more capital has been invested in tho mines In the vicinity of Port Steele than iu all
proceeding years, and during the
past week, over $50,00D in bonds
were consummated, on pioperty
