NORTH STAB MINE.
JJ ow Hoisting; Machinery New Roads
Ore Bins and Other Developments.
The North Star mine is one of
Slue greatest silver-lead properties on ;the continent. Some
thousands of tons of ore has already been shipped from this
wine, but though it i.s located
within 20 miles of Port Steele,
tfce eost of transportation has
teen so great as to discourage
the active working of the mine.
At present a force of some 35
HtfiM are at work making new developments so as to be in readiness for shipping on an extensive
seale as soon as the branch road
is completed. We have been in
funned by Mr, Mann, that the
branch will not be started until
spring, and that it will be com
pleted. by the 1st of .Tune.
When the conditions are favorable for shipping, tlie output of
(Vke mine will average from 100
te 150 tons daily.
Tho company are now engaged
iitr. sinking a double compartment
shaft, al, a point nortli of the old
vsMti-kings, tlie shaft is now down
smmie 30 or 40 feet, and will be
eoutirmed to a depth of 300 feet.
A aew hoist is now on its way to
the mine. New ore bins have
been constructed, and the wagon
road lias been extended to the
several tunnels and shafts,
Mr. D. D. Mann arrived at
Fort Steele on Friday last, on
his return from the mine. Mr.
Mann informed a Pkospeutou
reporter that as soon as the road
Bias completed the mine would
'become a constant shipper, and
that he was much pleased with
the present condition of the
jsraie.
Mr. Ike Oppeulieimer of Van-
fiiiittrar visited the North Star on
.Monday, and on his return on
Wednesday, said that he had
visited a large number of mines,
but the North Star had the
largest showing of mineral on
litec American Continent.

Quaurta, which was reported in
the Prospector of Sept. 10th,
Mr. B. C. Egan has a force of 0
men at work developing- the
claim, which from present indications promises to bt very rich
in gold The ore is a porphy-
ritic quartz, lying between granite and slate. There seems to be
no reason to doubt but that the
Big Chief is one of the richest
and most remarkable discoveries
made in the Port Steele district
this year,
Paris Bxhibitien Group.
Active work is now being carried on at the head of Six-mile
creek on the Paris Exhibition

galena and iron. We learn that
the property is owned by an
English syndicate, represented
by Mr. H. Crofts of Kaslo.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA.
At the Omaha Exposition.   Displays
of Gold, Silver, Lead and
Copper Ores.
In the exhibit of British Columbia, which is immediately
east of that of Washington, and
also in charge of L. K. Armstrong, there are five tons of
ores characteristic of different
districts in the province. There
! are over 1,000 specimens. The
large Port Steele exhibit, which
was at Spokane last year, occupies a prominent space. In connection with some of these specimens are stories which if not
known as true would be set down
as fairy tales of dreamers. There
are for example, samples from
the Le Roi mine, the stock of
which six years ago went begging at a cents a share, and it
was with difficulty that money
was obtained -it this price for
stock with which to develop the
property. Since then the mine
has paid $1,000,000 in dividends,
besides paying §500,000 for development work and equipment,
and building a $250,000 smelter.
The stock iu place of selling for
5 cents a share is now hold at $(>
per share,' and tlie owners of it
aro not looking for purchasers
even at that figure. The present
daily shipment from tlie Le Roi
is from 300 to 400 tons.
There is also samples from the
War Eagle, which recently sold
for $000,000; from the Victoria,
which sold a few days ago for a
large sum to a Spokane banker,
and from other mines which have
made their discoverers or pur
chasers wealthy. The famous
Cariboo mine, which was recently reorganized and is paying big
dividends monthly, also is represented by a number of samples,
The latter mine—the Cariboo
—is particularly interesting to
Omaha visitors, as it is in the
same district and adjoining the
Lemon mine and now being developed by Omaha capital. The
Lemon mine and adjoining
claims owned by the company,
have a fine exhibit, and one
which for one peculiarity will
hold the attention of a mining
man. It is an ideal ore to work,
for in place of having to send it
to a smelter, the values can
easily be saved by a stamp mill
and concentrators. There is one
piece of ore from the Lemon
mine, weighing over 100 pounds,
development work on which
is being pushed and which is rapidly nearing the producing stage,
The ore is still increasing in
value, as does that of the other
mines of the district, as depth is
attained, but it has already
reached and passed the paying
point:
Aside from the gold ores, one
of the interesting features of the
exhibit of British Columbia is a
block of Crow's Nest coal, from
the 100-foot vein, to gel towhici
a railroad was built,

WINDERMERE   DISTRIOT.
A New Mining Distriot With High
Grade Ores.
The town of Windermere is
situated on the east side of
Windermere Lake, about 70
miles north of Po rt Steele, The
population numbers about 200,
There are two general supply
stores, two hotels and a number
of private residences. Many
ranchers are located at this
point As a mining district,
Windermere is rapidly coming to
the front, and many promising
claims have been located, and
during the past year considerable development work has been
done.
The following is the distances
to the principal mines from
Windermere: Salmon beds* 3
miles; Foot of the Mountains 18
miles; Pretty Girl 22 miles; Sitting Bull 25 miles; Dividend
Group 24 miles; Sweepstake
Group 24 miles; Alps Group 25
miles. The Salmon Beds are 3
miles from Windermere, and is
the crossing of the Columbia
river, where the government has
provided two ferry boats for the
■tccommodatiou of the public
Prom Windermere to the foot
of the mountains it is 18 miles,
the intervening region consisting
of rolling country, dotted with
many fine ranches, under various
stages of cultivation, and a large
amount of splendid grazing land.
It is 1.5 miles from tiie salmon
beds to the foot of tlie mountains
and a wagon rond will be constructed by the government early
next spring.
PRETTY (I I HI, GROUP!
This property is about 22 miles
from Windermere, and is now
being worked by a large English
syndicate, tlie group consists of
eight claims which extend from
Boulder Creek, over tlie summit
to Law Creek, Considerable
work has been done on these
claims during the past summer,
ore has bean shipped, a tunnel
has been run for several
hundred feet, and the company
is now engaged in sinking a
shaft on the ore body The
character of the ore is a gray
copper which assays very high.
SITTING BULL GROUP.
About three miles from the
Pretty Girl is the Sitting Bull
group of claims, located by
Messrs. Johnson, Kenny and
Batiche. The group consists of
4 claims, the Sitting Bull, Colorado, Mary J and Alice. The
Sitting Bull and Mary J have
been bonded to a Nelson syndicate for the sum of $40,000. A
large number of men are now
engaged in developing the pro
perty. The character of the ore
is a clean high grade galena
carrying gray copper, assays
have run as high as 742 ounces
in silver to the ton.
DIVIDEND GROUP.
Just over the divide from the
above group, is situated the
Dividend group, located by J, H.
Taylor, Wm. Haupt and Harry
Mathers, This group consists
of four claims, the Dividend,
Paying Teller, Silvor Thread
and Echo. On tho Dividend and
Paying Teller, the paystreak is
about 4 feet in width, and can be
traced for 300 feet. On tho Sil
ver Thread the vein has a width
of li fool. Tlie ore is of the same
character as that found on the
Sitting Bull claim, a high grade
galena carrying gray coppor, A
cabin has boon built, and ar
rangemeiits aro now being made
to develop the proporty. A Hue
waterfall is situated about a half
mile below the claims, wliich can

tlie claims,
IRON QUHKN,
Across  the  creek  from  tho
Dividend lies the Iron Queen, located by Johnson aud Stockdale.
Thero is over 10 feet of ore in
sight, that will run 72 ounces in
silver to the ton.
HORSE THIEF CREEK.
Joining the Iron Queen on tlie
north is the Sweepstake and Independent, located by Wm.
Haupt and J. H. Taylor. On
this property we find the largest
showing of mineral in the district, but a certain amount of
development work must be done
to ascertain the extent of the
ledge. The vein consists of an
Iron capping which is impregnated with gray copper, under
this cap galena is found, of a
grade similar to that on the
Sitting Bull group.
THE ALPS GROUP.
Consists of 4 claims located by
Emil Banks, and are known as
the Alps No. 1, Alps No. 2, Pet
and Monaco. The ledge ou these
claims is from 3 to 5 feet in
width, the ore is similar in
character as that found on the
Sitting Bull property.
The Ruth, located by Dave
Newell joins the Sweepstakes on

Political.
Mr. C. W. D. Clifford, of Inverness, is in Victoria. Mr.

that result having been ceded
loug ago. Mr. Clifford says that
he still adheres to his independent position, and would not know
what he was prepared to do in
the House until the Legislature
met. He favours tlio opening up
of the country and is opposed to
anything in the shape of a
"cheese-paring" policy, but Mr.
Clifford intimated that if the
Senllin Administration is prepared to adopt a progressive
course, calculated lo result in
the development of flic resources
of the Province, lu* would be
found to be working and voting
with them.—Victoria Times.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1898.
Ottawa Letter.
From Dm* Own Covrospontlont,
(Ottawa, Oct. 8.-Eastern papers
.■are having fun with the Mon-
fe'ieal correspondent of the New
3tork Sun, who has announced
in the columns of that extreme
asaM-British paper, that the government is on the eve of dissolution, having boen "ruined by
success" '-Ontario is very jealous of a Quebeeker and French
Canadian holding the premier-
aldj»," and "the country is ripe
for a change". Had.one of those
traitorous grits sent the item
what a howl there would have
tean, for the New York Sun has,
fa the past, out done all its con-
tenporaries in its efforts towards
the annexation of the Dominion
to the Stars and Stripes, and
fiiiat is the only "change'' that its
KW-aders can understand, or think
«£, when reference is made to
Canada. But perish the thought
fihat such an idea could have
$»8n iu the mind of the truly
foyal conservative who is thc
Montreal correspondent of the
Sinvr York Sun.
•I'lIK LATE M. 0. (JAMKIIOX.
The death of Hon. M. C. Cam-
nsnon, Lieutenant-Governor of
•fiJia Territories, comes as a pain
(ui shock to a large number of
Canadians, outside of those who
have been counted among his
jnftrsonal and political friends.
Mr. Cameron lias been in the
public eye since confederation,
and lias always borne an enviable
refutation as a clean politician
ataxia hard and plucky tighter.
His r«ceut appointment to the
gubernatorial office was a lilting
reward for tho long, faithful aud
hauest service, and iu tlie storm
at hypercritical comments which
vwei'e.raised by some of the polities'.) appointments made early
tikis summer, this one received
turn attention, and a greater pro-
poi-.tion of approval, than por-
)i3,p.s any other. The deceased
nra.s a representative of a ster-
1'iBji class of public men which is
invaluable in a young country
like Canada, and it may be safely
affirmed that he has by his life
left his country better than he
found it.
PROOFS   AEE   STILL    LACKING.
The controversy as to the administration of the Yukon goes
on without any special novelties
or startling developments. The
leading characteristics remain
the same, fresh allegations along
the old lines, without any attempt at proof, on one hand, and
on the other specific denial by
those who have been definitely
credited with these stories,
Lieut. Col. Domville, the federal
member for King's county, N. B.,
was one of those who was honored with a vernation report of
an interview some two or three
months ago in which he was represented as denouncing the government in unmeasured terms;
now he has arrived in Ottawa on
his way home and denies the essential port-ions of this report.
Of the new charges, which by
the by don'l seem to wear well,
as they are so constantly being
changed, the most interesting
this week is that made in the
Kingston Whig by Rev. D. Gardiner, who is very emphatic in
his denunciation of the officials,
and makes a considerable parade of his alleged proofs, but he
unaccountably omits to mention
a few little interesting details
which could have been so easily
supplied, such as the names of
the offending officials, the names
of the aggrieved miners, and so
on. Little details like these
would have wonderfully improv
ed the generally appearance of
his story.
"TIIK KINO" IK SATISFIED.
The "King of the Klondike",
Mr, Joe. Barrett has also been
in town this week. As possibly
the best posted man that has
come out of the Yukon, and not
being known to have any political leaning or caring a straw for
politics or party, his opinion will
prove interesting (if not too favorable to the government,) and
may be accepted as worth something. He is reported as speaking highly of the officials, and
saying he has no cause to complain of their action, and if there
is any wrong doing he is not
aware of it. Like nearly every
other returning miner, however,
he is strongly opposed to the
imposition of the royalty, claiming that it inflicts hardships on
the miner and retards the progress of the country. He advocates the abolition of the royalty
system and the imposition of a
blanket tax upon the claims.
OFFICIAL RASCALITY.
Another startling instance of
the rascality everywhere evidenced among the Yukon officials:—
Judge MeGuire who has returned from Dawson has evidently
feathered his own nest comfortably, for did he not presenl; the
Kingston newspaper reporters
the other day with a small gold
nugget each ? The attention of
opposition journals is called to
this indisputable evidence of
corruption.
A SILLY STORY.
The Canadian Gazette last
Saturday published the official
announcement of the Imperial
regulations governing the acceptance of foreign orders and
medal* by British subjects. This
was an ordinary state document,
of which scores appeaf in the
course of a year, and had no unusual significance, and yet the
ingenuity of the Mail & Empire's
Ottawa correspondent was equal
to the task of discovering that
it was prepared aid published
as a direct and studied reproof
to the premier. Some of the
boys seem to have to work their
imaginations pretty hard to earn
thoir salaries, these days.
(IOOD WORK   FOR THE FARMERS,
The annual report of Professor
Saunders, director of tin' Experimental Farms, upon the cereal
crops at the Central farm here,
has been issued. He states that
the season has given excellent
grain crops; some of the besl
existing varities yielded larger
returns than any heretofore.
The report proceeds lo give the
details of the yield of 05 varieties of oats, -IH varietio* of spring
wheat, I'H varieties of six rowed
barley, i'l varieties of two rowed barley, besides peas, winter
wheat etc. The information
thus disseminated will be of
great practical value to the farmers, and is one more evidence
of the splendid work being done
for the agriculturist by the government.
The Future.
Do you over stop and think of
the future prospects of Port
Steele and what thedovelopment
of the vast, mineral resources of
the district will lead to. That
every dollars worth of gold taken
out of a creek or bar, every dollars worth of silver, every dollars worth of gold taken out of
the mountains, is a benefit to
every business man not only in
the district but in the whole of
the province, the whole of Canada. It helps every industry, it
builds up every business, it helps
the farmer by giving him a market for his produce; thus helping to build up successful mining and agricultural industries.

Fight.
Walker. Minnesota.  Oct. ti.—
A hard fight with Indians occur-
ed yesterday and reports from
the battle on the other side of
Leech lake are somewhat con-
Hiding although all reports a-
grec that the result has  been
considerable shedding of blood
and the loss of life on both sides.
No word has come from the front
for several hours, which fact is
considered something ominous,
The most serious report is that
the detachment of troops with
Gen. Bacon was massacred, the
general himself being among tlie
dead.   Three newspaper correspondents, Prill, of the St. Paul
Pioneer Press;  Bolton,  of the
Minneapolis Tribune, and Knap-
pen, of the Minneapolis Times,
are known to have been in the
tight, and one report is that they
have been killed, while another
says that they are now prisoners
in the hands  of the Indians,
This little town has been full of
excitement all day aud as reports from the other side of the
lake come in people become frau-
tic aud efforts have been made to
get up a force to go and help the
troops.    This will be sent in a
few hours.    Reinforcements are
coming on a special train from
i Brainerd.    However additional
! soldiers are mosl needed and the
i feeling is general that thoy can
nut come loo soon.    The light
been the head and centre of this
whole  difficulty,     Ex-Marshall
Bd, Harris, a Walker half-breed,
was struck, his arm being broken.    This shot seemed to lie a
signal   for   immediately   shots
came from every direction and
three men   dropped  and   were
carried  to  llie  rear.    'I'lie soldiers wlm  are   veterans  knew

them believe tlie dangers light.
The men on the steamers saw

Late last night an Indian who
arrived from Bear island states
that all the men out of uniform
had been killed but could not
toll how many soldiers had been
shot. No direct word came from
cither of th« correspondents who
are with the troops or from the
soldiers. This i.s looked on as
additional cause for apprehension, as it is believed Gen- Bacon
would have sent some official
communication had il been possible to do so, No word whatever has come from him, Neither has it been possible to confirm the report that the entire
detachment has been wiped out.
The outlook at this writing is
that the agency Indians may go
on the warpath at any moment:

WHY IT OCCURED.
The Pillagers and other neighboring  Indians  of   the   White
Earth reservation claim to have
many reasons for their outbreak,
although the direct trouble with
the   Pillagers   comes over attempts to bring in sonieof the Indians to the United States court
at Duluth in   connection   with
liquor    selling   cases.      Their
grievances   goes    back    many
years and there have been legislative  and other attempts to
settle them, one of the  latest
being the Nelson law regarding
the sale of   timber on Indian
lands.      However,  the Indians
claimed that tho method of disposing of this was both cumbersome and expensive  and   that
they were the losers.     In  regard to serving as witnesses in
illegal liquor selling cases they
claimed that tho deputy   marshals left, them to tiiul their own
way from Dnlntli without having paid thorn the proper mileage.   This is denied by the deputies.   The leader of tho trouble
with  the Pillagers is one   old
warrior Hog-ah-nia-ge-spig, not
a chlof, who recently returned
from court ami was soon afterwards sought again by the deputies.    Ile alleged ill treatment
iii being turned adrift penniless
in llllllllll and aroused lhe other
Indians lo protest, againsl   the
way lie claimed to  linve  been
treated,      The   United   Stales
marshals insists thai   the  old
mini's lll.li> is unfounded, but the

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1808.
THE   PLEBISCITE.
She Opinions of the Pr««B.   The Importance of the Vote.
MAIL COMMENT.
The Mail suys: It seems probably that when the full returns
come in that there will be for
this province a slight affirmative
majority. At all events such is
the tone of many of the rural
districts. The province of Manitoba gave a majority of five
thousand for prohibition. In the
1882 plebiscite there rolled up a
majority of 11,522. The far west
may be expected to bo slightly on
the"dry"s1de. There is a marked
division of lhe country on tho
subject as far as ligures go.
Centres of population, cities and
towns, reject the proposition,
some by large majorities, as in
Toronto, Montreal and Quebec,
the ligures there being respectively 8,000, 10,000 and 0,000,
but tlio rural districts are the
other way round. Another interesting feature of tho returns
is the attitude of the province of
Quebec, Tlie campaign tliere
against prohibition bore fruit in
the ballot box. On the whole
it, seems probable over thu whole
counlry thure will be a small
prohibition majority. A good
many people imagine this would
mean the enactment of a law.
This is a mistake. The majority of a million would enact nothing. The plebiscite was really
an order upon the prohibition,
ist.s to put up or shut up, and we
rather think the government
will toll them lo "shut up,"
MONTREAL I'ltESS COMMENT.
Montreal,* The Herald says
it does uot. anticipate that the
prohibitionists will seriously
urge immediate legislation. N'o
reasonably person, it thinks, will
deny llie niter futility and Lho
mischievotisness of any attempt
lo Impose a sumptuary law on
Quebec, in face of the   public
sentiment as ho»*,il« as yesterday's returns show it to be.
The Star says that under no
circumstances whatever, even in
the event of all the provinces
showing majorities for prohibition, will Sir Wilfrid Laurier
commit his government to a
prohibition bill.
tahte's paper speaks.
Montreal.—La Patrie, Tarte's
paper, says that as only one
fourth of the electors have voted
that one fourth cannot, with any
reason, expeot to regulate the
aft'airs of Ihe country and to impose its wish.
UQUOH  MEN ,1 I'm LA.N'T.
Toronto.—Liquor men here »re
quite jubilant over the result of
the plebiscite They say Ihey
are certain the government will
never introduce prohibition on
the evident reversal of sentiment
in Ontario and tlie large majority in Quebec.
A   WINNIPEG    BANK   ROBBED.
$62,000    Was   Taken   From   The
Vnulte of Molson's Bank.
The Molson's bank in this city
has been robbed of a large sum
of money, said to be in the
neighborhood of $62,000, The
bank officials and solicitors are
very reticent in regard to Iho
matter, although they do not
deny tliat the bank has boon robbed, the details of the affair
are. kept from the public,
Montreal, Oct. 0,—Mr. Wolf-
erstan Thomas, general manager
of the Molson's bank, confirms
the report, of the recent bank
robbery at Winnipeg, lie was
notified early this morning thai
$02,000 had been taken. Out of
this $25,000 was in unnogofiablu
notes, so that $87,000 is Ihe real
loss of tho haul;.
Manager Phepoo has been
communicated with and was ex
peeled in the oity lasl evening.
The robbery was not discovered
until Tuesday al uoon so thai il
can be safely inferred that the
safe was not broken inlo or any
evidence left in the building by
the robbers. In fact it is asserted that the vault was opened
by the regular combination.
This adds much to the mystery
as only one man in the bank
knows the whole combination,
each clerk using the vault locking a portion. The reticence of
the solicitors under the circumstances is hard to understand,
since the indefinite rumors that
have been flying about are apt
to do more harm in the way of
preventing the apprehension of
the criminals than a full statement of the case. If it were
known whether it was money or
securities which had been stolen
and if money tlie number of the
bills and the denomination it
would assist the police in tracing the matter. The silence is
pari ial ly accounted for by the
seeming lack of authority on the
part of both acting manager and
solicitors to give out any information. They both declare they
have uo authority to make anything public.
The amount of money kaid lo
have been taken seems rather
large for the bank to have had
on hand, but it is pointed oul
that jusl at this season of the
year, at the commencement of
the wheat season, all the banks
carry large amounts of money.
All the members of the bank
stall'were al work yesterday as
usual.
