MINING NEWS.
Fort Steele Development Syndicate.
This company has been formed
In London to operate in British
Columbia, in the purchasing,
bonding and development of
reining properties, to purchase
seal estate etc., in fact to engage
in everything that hits a claim to
be remunerative. Loans and
mortgages .are amongst its
powers.
At present, until the company
ha,s some insight into the position of affairs iu this Province, it
is not its intention to invest
heavily, but as time goes on,
however, it will probably see its
way to acquire property and
further its interests as well as
ihe interests of the country at
forge*.
The oompany has bonded the
Queen of Hills and Moyie mineral claims, at Moyie City, and the
Minnie M. aud Tiger claims on
Tracy creek. These properties
have good surface showings, and
no better prospects can be
shown.
The company is also interested
in the Kimberely townsite, which
bids fair to be one of the most
prosperous mining towns in the
district.
Mr. N. A. Wallinger is the
resident manager of the company in Port Steele, as well as
for the Province of British Col-
isrnbia.
Bonded.
Messrs. Arthur and Concklin
Jvacye bonded the Minnie M. and
Tiger mineral claims to the Port
Steele Development Co., the consideration is away up in the
thousands.
The Minnie M. group is situated on Tracy creek, and was located by J. Arthur and J. H
Concklin last year, the develop-
intent ,on the property cousists of
tan open cut 25 feet in length and
ending in an incline shaft of 16
feet There are two separate
leads that run through the
claims, one carrying galena,
which is eight feet in width, the
other quarts carrying copper and
gold, 5 feet in width. We learn
that the Development Company
will    immediately    commence
group. This group is situated
on Bear creek, a tributary of
Wild Horse, and was located last
year by Messrs. Harris and
Jones, Considerable development has been done; the ledge
shows 10 feet of ore, assaying
copper and gold; recent assays
give a rettfrn of 5 per cent copper, and $13 in gold. The ledge
is exposed in several places on
the mountain, and can be easily
traced for a distance of 2,500
feet.
A. W. Bleasdell has gone to
Skookum Chuck to inspect a
mining property.
Messrs. Merry and Johnson
has gone to Bull river on a tour
of inspection of mining property
in that vicinity.
Harry Mather, Billy Haupt
and P. Taylor are reported as
having made a rich strike of
galena on Toby Creek.
THE BRITISH LION ROARS.
Postoffice for Moyie City,   Swansea
and Cranbrook.
Postofflce Inspector Fletcher
arrived in Port Steele on Thursday evening. We learn that Mr.
Fletcher is hern to establish
post offices at Moyie City, Swansea and Cranbrook. It is the
intention of the Postal Department to still continue Fort Steele
as the distributing center of the
district until such time as
through railway connections can
be made via the Crow's Nest
railway. We trust that Mr.
Fletcher will make the postal
service of this district as efficient
as possible, making arrangements for a service to the south,
with Crow's Nest Landing, Tobacco and the new town of Elko.
work, develop the property and
ship ore as soon as possible.
The Montana group. Chas.
Beelingburg is sinking a BO foot
.shaft on the Montana, the

It is reported that the owners
of the White Swan mineral claim
will ship ore at an early date.
East Fork of Wild Horae.
The Government has a large
force of nten employed in cutting
and making a trail from the
forks of the creek, to the summit where the Coronado group
is situated.
Assessment work has beon performed on the Iron Mask and
Eureka mineral claims. On this
property is found a heavy iron
cap; one cut shows a lead fl feet
in width at a distance of 12 feet
from tho surface; at 25 feet the
ledge has widened to nearly 20
foet.
A good strike is reported on
the  Lakeside and Twin   Lake
The Cosgrove Company at Fort
Steele.
The Cosgrove Company opened a two days engagement at
Port Steele Opera House on
Monday night, and played to
crowded houses on both nights
Each evenings bill was inter
woven with varied specialities
of more than average merit, including the singing of Harry
Pay, the dancing and singing of
Miss Ada Cosgrove, and the
clever work of Mrs. L. Cosgrove. Miss Evelyn Mackie,
as an elocutionist, won frequent
recalls. Mr. Reg. Cosgrove
showed that he was a master
performer on the piano. The
latest novelities in song and
music were rendered, and the
kinetoscope captured the whole
audience. By special request
the Company played a return
date on Friday evening, which
was appreciated very highly by
a crowded house.
Her Majesty's Government
Takes A Firm Stand And
Tells Russia To Stop.
iS'lCCllll to THK PnoflPBOTOK.)
A report from Golden, Aug.
26 says;- That Salisbury has
delivered an ultimatum to Russia, that it must cease in its acts
of aggression in China. That
England will not allow any interference on the railway question, or the closing of ports in
China. That Russia must make
an explanation to that effect by
Saturday, Aug. 27, or war will
be declared.
This means in uo unmistakable
terms, that Russia must back
down in its aggressive policy in
the east, or face a war.
The Colonel Kicks.
Application has been made on
behalf of Col. Baker for the dismissal of the protest against his
election. It sets forth that there
is no jurisdiction in the Supreme
Court of British Columbia to entertain or hear petition, and that
no payment of deposit money by
way of security for costs and expenses was made by payment into the Bank of England. And
that the petition was not presented to tho prescribed officer to
be dealt with according to the
provisions of the Election Act,
within throe days after security
was given for costs and expenses.
The hearing of this application
is set down for August 81st.

HON. .TOSKPH MAKTIN.
Its All Over Town 1
It is the town talk that Col.
Baker has decided to retire from
politics and seek the shades of
Cranbrook for the purpose of
meditation and reflection in the
evening of his days. Apart entirely from his indignation at the
somewhat indeoont haste his colleagues have manifested to rid
themselves of the Colonel's presence in tho ministry, tlm honorable aud gallant goutleman
probably fears the result of a
Judical inquiry into the manner
in which the late election was
conducted in his behalf in East
Kootenay, The retirement of
tho Colonol with his "sack" will
give the government party a
walk-over in East Kootenay,
now that a fair election is assured.— Victoria Times.

Communications.
Victoria', Aug. lath., 1898.
Editok, Pbospectou,
.Sir:—I enclose a list of the
subjects of enquiry in connection
with the Agricultural Commission. It would be impossibe for
the Commissioners to visit every
locality of the Province in which
farming is carried on, to ascertain the views of every person.
In order, however, that all may
have an opportunity, farmers and
others are requested to express
their opinions in regard to any
or all of the subjects referred to,
addressing communications to
the Secretary of the Agricultural
Commission, Victoria, B. C.
The Commissioners would be
obliged to you if you would
call attention to this matter in your columns and publish
a list of the subjects.
Yours truly,
R.  E. GOSNELL
Secretary Agricultural Commission.
SUB.IECTS.
1. The social, industrial and
financial welfare of agriculturists.
2. The incidence of the tax on
mortgages.
2. Irrigation in the dry belts
of the Province.
4. Cold storage for the beef
products of the Interior.
Forestry—The   prevention
of forest fires, etc.
0. The reclamation, clearing
and draining of lands,
7. The settlement of unoccupied agricultural lands.
8. The establishment of Provincial Experimental Stations.

Knocked Down And Out,
They say now that Col. Baker
has decided to abandon politics
entirely, to devote himself to
looking aftor his extensive interests in "beautiful Cranbrook"
and the Crow's Nest coal  tields.
It is also said that Mr. Turner
intends resigning his seat, as his
business interests requiro his attention, and that ho will no, to
England; his visit to tho old
country will occupy a year,
With (.1. B. Martin already out
of it, and Col. Baker and Mr,
Turner on tho point of stepping
aside, the late ministry soems to
be ns thoroughly smashed as can
be
Berlin, Aug. 20.—According
to a dispatch from Hong Kong
the Americans about noon on
August 7 addressed to the Spanish commander of Manila an ultimatum demanding the surrender of the city and the Spanish
forces within 48 hours. During
the interval of grace the German
warships embarked German subjects and others under Gorman
protection. The demand for
surrender was repeated on the
afternoon of August 9, but the
Spaniards requested a delay to
enable them to receive instructions from Madrid by way of
Hongkong. The request was
refused. Tlie dispatch continues :
A bombardment of the lines
and outer batteries by the American warships was commenced
at 10 o'clock on August 13. The
Spanish were soon forced to
evacuate their outer positions at
Manilla and the Americans advanced on land, arriving soon
after noon, but the town was
then surrendered. Manilajitself
despite the heavy firing remained completely unharmed.
Hongkong, Aug. 10.— Admiral
Dewey gave Admiral Agustin an
hour in which to surrender, at
the time of the last demand made
on Sunday. General Agustin
refused to comply. The bombardment, which began at 9.30
a.m. was continued for two hours
and then the Americans stormed
the trenches carrying all before
them. Those within the walls
offered no resistance. The first
Colorado Volunteers stormed the
trenches and drove the Spaniards into the second line of defence. Then the American
troops swept on, driving all the
Spaniards into the inner fortifications, when the Spanish commander seeing that further resistance was useless, hoisted the
white flag and surrendered. The
losses, American and Spanish,
are not yet known.
The Spaniards in the trenches
probably numbered 8,000 men,
the American attacking force
force numbered 10,000 men and
the Americans were better armed, better trained and in better
condition.
The foreign Heel watched the
bombardment with acute interest. The American warships
engaged were the Olympia, Petrel, Raleigh, McCullough, Boston, Monterey, Charleston and
Baltimore. The Spaniards assert that the fire of the Americans for the most part fell short,
the only effective tiring being
from a small gunboat armed with
quick firing guns that was close
in shore. It is also asserted by
Spaniards that "the Americans
lost heavily in storming owing
to the faulty construction of
their entrenchments, which the
Spaniards could command from
the heights and upon which they
poured a galling fire."
The Spanish trenches extended around Manila at it distance of from two to four miles
from the walled oity, forming a
circle fen miles in circuinference
and it was impossible, the Spanish say, to hold such a long line
against the Americans.
Admiral Dowoy and (Jen. Mer-
i'ii had issued orders to spare
all except armed defenders of
tho city and consequently the
town suffered but little damage.
Somo street fights occurod in the
outskirts between the insurgents
and Spaniards, but order prevailed in the ether sections. The
American version is not yot obtainable.

In Iiie lute government the
Hon. Col. Baker was titularly
Minister of Mines, but he was
also Minister of Education and
several other things, so that,
even .granting that he was a
capable man to fulfil the duties
of the head of the mines department,—which of course he
wasn't,—he had too much to do
to properly attend to his other
offices and givo the needed time
aud attention to mining matters.
-Nelson Tribune.
The success' of the American
mining speculator is proverbial.
He keeps his eyes wide open,
spots the needy prospector, and,
says the B. C. Review, London,
Eng., follows in the wake of the
good. Undoubtedly this is the
way to get in at "bedrock,"
though the method is not always
infallible. The practice of a
small cash payment for pro-
pects, witli a share of prospective profits, is ii tolerably fair
and equitable arrangement—but
allowing for the objections we
know can be urged in all instances where tlie middleman appears, the advantage
of a prompt decision witli
some cash down is obvious.
If owners of payable minesought
to have no trouble to find a buyer, why do they show as a rule
so little hesitation in closing a
bargain ?
The Times on The Situation.
London, Aug. 20.—The Times
this morning says editorially
that it foresees circumstances
which may compel the United
States to a permanent occuption
of Cuba, and adds :—
:If America is prepared to
undertake the responsibility of
the whole Philippine group it is
hard to see how any other power
could legitimately interfere. If
the United States repudiates
such responsibility a very perilous state of things might ensue because it would not be easy
to dispute the right of other
powers to terminate the slate of
anarchy. Therefore, many difficulties will be avoided by American annexation. In any case no
European power need reckon on
linding the United Slnles as easy
lo coerce as Japan,"
London, Aug. 17.-Thepapers
this morning comment on tli.i
heroic and theatrical ligures oul
by Governors General August!'
and Blanco. The Daily News
congratulates Admiral Dewey on
io humanity ho displayed.
The  Daily   Chronicle   says:
The action of lhe German commander in removing Goueriil
August! is likely to Increase lho
tension between Germany and
America."
The Standard says; "The
fall of Manilla gives Ameri.cn
valuable assosts in pence negotiations but does not diminish the
difficulties which McKinloy will-
have to face." THE PROSPECTOR, FORT STEELE, B. CM AUGUST 27, 1898.

be made and was much interested iu the terms. When told that
the disposition of the Philippines
was left to a commission, he expressed much suprise that the
United States had not demanded
the islands, as Puerto Rico was
demanded.
He declined to say anything as
to his or his country's opinion on
the question. He said: "Japan
has learned many things from
the war. The American adinir
ill's tight at Manila has taught us
that fine ironclads and lieavyguus
alone would not win a battle,
We will pay more attention than
.ever to target practice, and with
thut the Japanese will become a
powerful naval nation, We will
have a Hue navy if the present
•policy continues. In this coun
try several boats are already
ready to go into commission, and
in England we build three large
vessels. I am going to Loudon
find will be gone three years,
During that time I will superintend the construction of vessels
there and at the same time study
the navies of the world.
'' It will not be long before
Japan is able to build her own
warships."
Aerial Torpedoes.
Lieut. Graydon, of London,
*Eng., according to the London
Mail, has received a letter from
President McKinley, in which he
informs the Englishman that he
has directed both the military
and naval authorities to look into
the matter of the Graydon Aerial
torpedo. "The range of torpedo
boa's," said the lieutenant, ''is
only six hundred yards, The
fighting at Manilla and Santiago
.shows how little purpose they
■serve in action. The Spanish
naval officers were full of dash
and courage, and yel at Santiago
these boats were driven off boforo they could got within oltee-
.live range, Now this shows the
need and value of areial tor
pedo projectiles, My invon
tion increases the effective
range of torpedo boats to 0,000
yards or more by the employment of aerial torpedoes charged
with a very high explosive. My
explosive is more powerful than
dynamite, By means of its projector a steel shell containing
1,400 pounds of explosive will be
hurled through tho air at great
.speed. How destructive this
force i.s may bo gathered from
the tost. At the United States
firing ground, Sandy Hook, N.J.
a turret weighing 275,000 pounds
was destroyed by three of the
shells, each charged with only a
few pounds of dynamite.
"1 am not using dynamite now
because I havo found a safer und
more powerful agent. The advantage of aerial over submarine
torpedo is apparent. The work
ol the   Vesuvius   has   ul ready
amply demonstrated that.
There are no tides, waves, eddies
seaweed or other obstructions to
deflect an aerial torpedo. It is
as accurate as any lifted cannon.
A GREAT CABBIDE PLANT.
Enlargement of the Establishment at
Siuilt Ste. Marie.
The Union Carbide Company
of Chicago is arranging to
greatly enlarge its plant at
Sault Ste. Marie for the production of calcium carbide. The
plant at Niagara Palls will be
continued, but that at Appleton,
Wis., will, it is said, be discontinued, It is well known, an
intense heat is necessary in the
furnaces of a carbide plant to
flux the materials of which the
carbide is composed. This heat
is besl: secured by the passage of
currents of electricity through
great carbon resistances embedded in the furnaces. Twenty
dynamos will, be used in the plant
at the Soo, and they have beon
purchased. These machines are
single-phase, low frequency alternators of 500 kilowatts each,
delivering 2,500 amperes at 200
volts. They will be excited by
five direct current machines of
100-horse power each, and the
large order also includes the
switchboards. The dynamos will
be water driven, the plant being
located at the falls for that purpose. It is said that the capacity of the plant, which will be
largest in the world for producing carbide, will be a 100 tons a
day. The buildings will be large
enough to accommodate double
the initial capacity of generators
and furnaces. The order for
the electrical machinery is one
of the largest ever, placed for
alternating current generators.
Behind a Screen.
When a theatrical troupe
reached Webster City, la., recently and placarded it with
vivid posters of the forthcoming
ballot spectacle, the city fathers
were upset. The youth of the
city sided with the theatrical
manager, who had secured his
license, paid for his hall and
widely proclaimed  his  advent.
Finally a compromise was effected. The show could go on
said the village patriarchs, provided a screen seperated the
dreadful battot girls from the
guileless Webster citizens, The
curtain went up and sure enough
a muslin fence about 2 1-2 feet
high extended across the stage
behind the footlights. Prom
their waists down not a bit of
the girls was visible. But some
of the more exuberant ones occasionally raised a toe above the
screen or threatened to turn
handsprings, and the country
boys fairly howled.
As a rap at the aged objectors
a mule was led across the stage
at one juncture. He had on a
ballot girl's costume and a big
placard saying:    "I am a male."
Later a donkey dressed up to
carraciture the mayor of the
town was led across amid tumultuous. On each side big signs
road: "this is an old woman."
Not » bit of his legs, or even
hoofs was visible, a long calico
skirt completely covering the
animal from his nock to the
ground. This piece of sarcasm
nearly caused a riot.
The theatrical people chuckled
and counted up their box office
receipts, while they made ready
fora hasty exit from Webster
City. Now the town is the butt
of ridicule all over the state.
Then and Now.

Inventive genius is doing for
the mining industry what it has
done for other phasos of our industrial lifo. It is lifting the
vocation to a higher level aud

though it must be confessed
that tho mines Ophir have nover
been definitely located by curious
man sinco they wore lost in the
remorseless shuffle of passing
years, Tho next most voluminous accumulation of gold, found
by Pissarro with the Incu of Peru
was also from the surface, for
the ancient Peruvians were no
greater adepts at deep mining
than their trans-Atlantic cousins
of lliu ancient world,
Before the days of gunpowder
for blasting purposes the art of
working rook was a tedious process thai' practically destroyed
tho profits of mining, even when
slave labor was employed*. The
ancient mi net' seems never to
havo discovered the use of lime
in blasting, as it was often applied in the early day in the
west whon powder could nol be
secured. Alternate layers of
dry and dump lime in a dry hole
was a comparatively slow but
effective process of breaking
rock. As the water percolated
from the damp lime into the
uuslaoked lime a force was generated that could lind expression
only by breaking the rock.
The advance mado in mining
during the last few yours has
been marvelous, Not only have
machines boen devised to simplify the work and expedite mining
operation and increase the output, but chemistry has grasped
the problems of the underground
world with brilliant success,
Tlie treatment of ores has kept

exports to Canada, which are of
more value to them then the

of their respective departments
of the provincial govermeut.
The new ministers were met at
the buildings by the retiring
ministers, shown over the department and introduced to the

making themselves acquainted
with the workings of the departments and attending to routine

Sea Power.
London :—A Times editorial
article emphasizing the tremendous lesson of sea power evinced
in the war between Spain and
the United States says : "Nothing but a miracle or cosmic catastrophe could have averted an
ultimate collision between the
growing sea power of the United
States and the waning Spanish
empire.
"Sea power in this sense caused war, and was its governing
factor from first to last. It is
a lesson to the whole world the
full import of which can hardly
be discerned as yet, for the fulfilment by the States of the imperial destiny foreordained by tlie
genius of her people to exhaustive but aggressive, will be attended by consequences of vital
moment, alike to tho old world
and the new one."

NOTE AND COMMENT.

the courts of Austria, Denmark,
St. James and St. Petersburg is aware of it, and also of
Kicuiity oi the real traitor.
Sir Monier Monier-Williams,
the veteran professor of Sanskrit al: the University ol'pxford,
have celebrated their golden
weudin*. Tlie professor who is
80'years, of'age, has just completed the second edition oi' his
Sanskrit dietionar.y.
Otto Ribeck, who died iu Leipzig recently, was one of the most
noted of classical philologists.
He had been professor of the
University of Leipzig for 21
years, having previously occupied positions at the universities
of Berne, Basle, Kiel and Heidelberg. He* was 71 years old at
the time of his death.
with thi* officer that he originally
called to tliat pluee or from the
consideration of politics Secretary Alger has been retained in
a position which constant occurence proved him incompetent to
fulfil satisfactorily. The nation
was entitled to the best mall attainable in that place; it has had
one whom there is a general
conviction was below the average of competency for his
duties.
1   Queen's Hotel.
Philadelphia Times; There
is nothing whatever iu Colonel
Roosevelt's letter to the secretary, of the date of July 23, that
in the slightest degree justifies
the illinaunered reply two weeks
later. Having been until lately
associated with the executive
departments it was not inappropriate for Oof. Roosevelt to make
an official suggestion to the secretary of war, and it must be
said that his suggestion was a
proper one, .11* the cavalry division had been sent with Miles it
would have been of great service
it probably would not have been
necessary to send it now to an
invalid camp. The secretary
did not adopt tlie suggestion but
he appears to have seen nothing
improper in it until the letter
about tlie fever situation was
published, when he digs out a
portion of this former letter and
posts it with au angry an inappropriate reply, giving it a significance that was clearly no
| part Of its purpose, lu this correspondence it is not Roosevelt
that suffers, and the secretary
will be wise to let him alone.

The United States has nothing
more to do with the "Cuban debt"
of Spain than it has with the
mortgage Spain has placed on
tobacco and other domestic revenues. Por that matter there is
no Cuban debt, for Cuba has
contracted uo debt. Spain has
contracted one' for Cuban purposes or alleged Cuban purposes
but it is purely a Spanish debt,
and she could just as easily call
it the Washington or Idaho debt.
The United States has no intention of interfering in the domestic affairs of Spain, and
hence this "Cuban debt" question
does not concern it. Whatever
debt 'Spain owes ou account of
Cuba, Puerto Rico or any other
Spanish dependency, she must
settle as best she can.

It Has Dropped.
Movie has been promised a
post-office and a school by the
Provincial government, but as
yet no advance seems to have
been made towards establishing
either. Of course the unsettled
conditions of politics has much
to do with the delay. It is always the way when there is a
dispute for the much sought for
legislative seats. However, the
needs of the people and the pro-
gress of government should not
be retarded by political ruptures.
If Moyie does,not soon get what
she has been promised, the Provincial goverment is very likely
to hear something drop.—Moyle
Leader.
The Leader is right, but that
something has dropped, and il,
was heard nil over thu Province.
It was when Lieu tenant Governor Mclnnes dismissed the Turner cabinet.
