BIRTHS.  Gainkk���������On the 11th  inst.. .-the wife  of S. F, W. Oaiucr of a daughter.  Up   the  Columbia  River   from   Revelstoke���������A Plain and  Reliable   Account  of   the   Work   Already    Done,   and  Reasonable   Prospects   for  the    Near  ;   Future.  In addition to the golden prospects  in * the immediate future which  the position- of Revelstoke ' its  the distributing point, and centre  of tlie Lardt'iiu. Trout Lake and  lllecillewaet mining districts, whose  immense wealth recent discoveries  have placed beyond the possibility of a  doubt, leads her citizens to enterl.iin.  this town is the only gateway into the  famous Big Benel golel fielels, whose  riches have, attracted the attention of  miners over since the early days of  lhe rush to Cariboo. .Starling from  Revelstoke the pack trail, which is al  present the only means of access to the  eenintry, leads along the east- bank of  tho Columbia river, 02 miles to Gold-  stream, on which creek the principal  operations are at present being conducted. Il is confidently expected,  however, that the C.P.R. will put, a  steamer on the river next season,  which will 'make the trip as far as  Dewnio Greek, or 10 miles of ihe distance. It is also hoped that government assistance will before lemg be  forthcoming to clem- out the obstructions to,navigation at the dangerous' Death "rapids, above Downie  Creek, so as to enable a steamer to  make the complete trip toGolelstream.  This creek together with its tributaries  French Creek and McCiillough Greek,*  has hitherto* been "the scene, of the''  chief placer mining in the country. '  arcuixouaii cheek.  In the sixties considerable gold was  taken from the mouth anel upper portion of this cre*e*k, and three or four  shafts were sunk, all on the rim rock.  But owing If) the high price of provisions in those days combined with the  natural difficulties of the. ground,  millers were forced to leave the  country, and the Big Bend stood still  until ISSo. At that time a great number of locations were taken up anel  held by a system of transfer iinel sale  from one miner to another, hut in  reality little or no work was done until 18U2. The Ophir claim at the  mouth of Me.<3iillough crook was work-  eel sis an hydraulic pTfiposiUoTi7~'uid;  gave very fair returns, which might  in competent opinion have been largely increased by a more workmanlike  method of handling the property,  which is no doubt - a valuable erne.  This claim has been in the courts for  several years anel is new lying idle.  The Last Chance claim joins the  Ophlr. Considerable work was done  on this claim up to two years ago to  very little purpose. Under the present  manager, Mr. John Sanderson, an olel  shaft has been cleaned out to the  depth of 00 feet, and a gootl ileal' of  tunneling run without, getting oil" the  vein rock. but. from the prospects obtained while running along the vein  rock, there can be little doubt thai  this claim will prove before long'an  exceedingly valuable property.  The North Slur claim lies above the  Last. Chance. For the last* three seasons a tunnel has been run on this  claim, which ought soon to strike bed  rock, the discovery of which will tend  ������really to develope the upper portion  of the creek. All these placer propositions will turn out good properties  under proper handling.  FitK.vcir OIJEEK  runs into Golelstre.ini four miles above  McOullough creek. In the early days  there was considerable money made  on this creek, and a small town ami  sawmill were built for the .accommodation of the miners. During ihe last  foiir or live .years' the' 'Consolation  claim has provcel a very nice property in the hands of working men, and  has turned out profitably lo the. shareholders, being worked economically  anil iu a workmanlike manner by  means of a shaft drained by a bed  rock drain. The', adjoining claim,'the  Gold Hill, paid very well for one eir  two se_*,-isiins .-us it elrifting claim. It has  Ih'cii solel to a Chicago syndicate, who  have, shipped machinery to weak it as  a hydraulic proposition.. From lhe  prospects obtained by'.drifting, the  claim should prove a very valuable  property. The indications already  shewn on this creek certainly mark it  as well worth further prospecting and  development by experienced men.  (IDl.I^'I'KKAM.  This creek is tin exceedingly elifliciilt  one for men without, capital to handle,  owing to t.hei very high singe of water  prevailing in it from the middle, of  May till September, which renders the  constitictiem of wingtlains anel flumes,  without, sufficient, capil.nl to push the  work through a very precarious undertaking. Hilherlei for ihis reason, lack  of means has pi-pveiiteil a proper prospect-being made of this creek. In lhe  canon of the. creek towards its month  as much as $2,000 or $3,000 of coarse  golel has been collected in recent years  by scraping it out of the heel rock during extreme low water. One nugget  obtained in this way was worth $11 to  $12. This canon is about two miles  long, cut through a white limestone  formation, anel tin* creek rushes  through it, in a continuous series of  falls. It is consklered by experienced  prospectors that the creek iI self,  which is ither.it 200 feet wide*, Hows  through the heel of an ancient hike,  which itstilf covered the bed and valley  of a former crook, whose waters were  flammed back by an ancient landslide,  anel thus l'ormeil the. lake. Tn course  of time by slow degree's the waters of  the lake gradually cut themselves an  exit, through the limestone formation  at the present canon, and once more  discharged themselves in Lo the Columbia. It is estimated that it. woulil not  be it very diflicult task to tup the  creek just above the i-anem em the  south bank and drain olf its waters  either by a tunnel or open cut through  a hill at this point, after which they  would find their own way to the river  without any further work being  necessary. It. is likely from what  hiis been said before of the results ol>-  taineel by "sniping" in the canon at  low witter, that if the bed rock were  properly cleareel of water, a substantial hiirvest of the yellow metal would  be'gathered in. -    -"��������� - ���������   -  sjiitit cheeic. -  On the opposite side ol' tho river to  the mouth of Goldslream, the Columbia River Hydraulic Mining Co. were  operating, under the direction of Prof.  Mason, with hyelraulic machinery  during the last; season with promising  returns. On .Smith cieel*, immediately  above, another company Inul sunk  two shafts which were in 70 and 50  feet respectively last f.ill, but without  striking bed rock. However, the indications shewn up hitherto afford a  reasonable ex pert a lion that Smith  creek will develope into a gooel paying  creek.  Further north as far as the Big Benel  of the river there has been consider-  ahle���������prosueutiilu_elone.   but   hitherto  without* any results being announced  It must be rememhered that to many  of the men prospecting or supposed  to be prospecting for placer in Big  Bend, the Big Benel was the scene of  their debut as prospectors. The' old  timers,'who were in lire country iu Lhe  sixties believed there was a gooel thing  there, only difficulties with which  they could not contend, drove, 'them  out to William's Creek ami Lightning  Creek, where money was being made  more easily. With the increase-el  transport facilities, to which we may  look forward, iii''the near , future, these  difficulties will be largely ove-rceime,  anel it is ejuite likely that if properly  iiiiiiiitgetl by men that uiiderstjanel  their business, a good many Big Benel  properties will more than justify this  favorable opinion of the olel htinels.  English Capital and the Lardeau,  The London correspondent of lhe  Rossltinil Miner says in their i^sue of  the 7th inst,. "The Financial News  in a recent issue draws attention te*  the .Slocan district, which hits hitherto  receiveel but scant'attention over here  considering its undeniable merits as a  rich .anil' valuable mining region.  From many conversation*) that I have  hatlwith men associeel with some;' of  the-'.wealthiest' anil most influential  financial houses, I cannot hold out  hopes thtit. this portion of West Kootenay is,likely to immediately receive  much attention from' the invetting  public on this side..of the water, the  probabilities being that the Lardeau  country will bis more favored,.lowing  to the fact, that its ores .irurry. a percentage of gold���������lien not a.large ono it  is true, but sufficient to attract investors���������although the intrinsic value  eif the Slocan tires is, generally con-  siilerably greater."  The local clergy have promised to  make an appeal on behalf of the In  dinn Famine Fund tomorrow. 'Lists  of subscriptions have been opened' at  the Post eiflico, Revelstoke, and at C.  B. Hume & Co's store, Revelstoke  station.  THE SILVER CUP GROUP.  A Silver and Gold Proposition Likely  to Prove One of the Richest Properties hi British Columbia.  This group, like Uin Great Northern,  is tributary to tho town of Ferguson,  anil lies on the south fork of the  Laicli'iiu river about 7 miles from lhe  town, It, consists of several claims :n-  cluding the original Silver Cup owned  by lhe Silver Cup Co., the Sunshine"  -and Towser. owni'd by the llorne-  P.-tyiio Syndicate, and Queen of the  Hills, envni'd by AbrahiiniMHi Bros.  On tlie Silver Cup a shaft has been  sunk about, 100 feet, iinel at the pre-se-ttt  lime lhe ceimpany is running a tunnel  lo Lit|) Lhe vein, which they expect to  input fuel, and they  have  nearly  that distance completed. The elovel-  opinont work done in sinking the  shaflshewed up a body of ore sufficient-  to justify the company in running the  tunnel. "Shipments of ore from the  shall have been made and have proved  the load to be very high grade, carry-,  ing  gold,   silver,   lend    and    copper.  On the Sunshine .and Xowsur the  Horne-Payne Syndicate has been  working a gang of W ������1' 12 *"wl ilU  winter, with results equally as satisfactory tis those obtained from the  SilverGnp. showing that Lhe body of  ore is continuous all through the  claims.

A pack trail has  been constructed to thu group, which  is easily accessible anil presents great  advantages in the shape of Limber and  Witter in the iiuiiv-iliate neighborhood,  adding considerably to the facilities  of working .and consequently to the  value of the mine. It is believed by  those competent to give an opinion  Lhat further development- will reveal  an immensely rich property in  this group, the prospects of which together with those of their other property, the Great Northern, are such as  will fully justify the.

HAVE     CONSERVATIVES     WON  NORTH   ONRARIO ?  SATURDAY,     FEB.   13,       1S07.  A SPLENDID CHANCE  The Winnipeg Tribune, which  Beems to have appointed itself to  the oflice of censor nioruin bon-  orum, more particularly in election '.'matters, should certainly, in  ���������lecordance with its custom, publish the "."bill of particulars" liled  by Mr. McPhail against his l'ellow-  Xiibernl, Mr. Davis, who fought  und ran away the other day at  Saskatchewan, believing that his  iloing so might result (which is  very doubtful, if Mr. McPhail's  I'barges can be proven) in his  Jiving to tight another day. There  is a splendid opportunity to insist  on the criminal law being set iu  motion against the unscrupulous  friends of Mr. Davis, iu order to  vindicate the "purity of elections," as was done under the  .supervision of the Tribune at Mac-  ��������� lonald and Winnipeg. Last the  Tribune may not be aware of what  is going on, its attention is respectfully directed to the views of tho  Prince Albert press on the situ-  ittion. The Prince Albert Advo-  ���������-���������ate, the Liberal organ, which supported Mr. Davis during the  recent election, says ���������   ���������  All through the late campaign the  -.party,occupied it humiliating -position,  ti.nd that, together wilh the reaction  letting in, will go fai towards obliterating the little prestige the Liberals  trained here in June last by electing  imr now Premier, Mr. Laurier. If the  Government becomes incensed at the  politicians here, and their bungling of  i he'affairs which they should guard so  s-.ealously, and refuse to elo anything  J'or the district, they could hardlj* be  blamed. As ithe. situation appears  now, the interests of the district are  to be sacrificed for personal ends, to  the utter disgust of the greater portion  ot the community, who would like to  see their country prosper.  The Saskatchewan Times, which  '..supported the unsuccessful Liberal  candidate,   editorially    expresses  itself on the tactics adopted :  "If the present Government were  siding according to their professions  ��������� ir axioms���������as they have so often  vaunted���������to purify.the administration  of the election law, they .would make a  thorough investigation; of the whole  election contest in Saskatchewan and  luidertake the prosecution of every  unlawful act occurring therein, there-  I'V reforming their own party first anel  fhowing to the whole Dominion that  _��������� hey_-in tend���������to���������practice���������what^t-hey-  jirofessed. This would effect a telling  'result, and in the-interests of society  find good government the law should  Le enforced and justice done."  These expressions of opiniou,  coming from Liberal organs,  should surely appeal to the  Tribune's sense of justice. : The  preat Liberal party in Saskatchewan is said to occupy a hiiinilia-  iug position, its prestige is gone  Hud prosecutions are clamoured  for. The Tribune has never had a  chance like this before. Will it  take advantage of the opportunity?

IS TK!S THUS ?  The Toronto Telegram says the Crow's  Nest Railway Will not be Constructed  by  the   Canadian   Pacific Company  The Toronto Telegram of last Thursday is responsible for the following:  While no official announcement "litis  been made it is certain that the Crow's  Nest Pass Railway will not be built by  the Canadian: Pacific Railway Com-  pan3r. Hon. A. G. Blair, minister of  railways in the Laurier cabinet, has  been looking into the Crow's Nest  e_ucslion anil litis come to the conclusion that the government had  better build the line. The object of  .Mr. Blair'-"is to secure for Canadians  the benefit of a competing line to the  Pacific coast,.and.it is fair to the West  that this initial step should be made.  At first; for a few years, perhaps, the  Crow's Nest railway, as built by the  government will serve only lhe district which it is built to benefit, but  after the arrival of the expected prosperity that Canada is to have, it  is to to be extended to Leth-  bridge and .-it some later dav to  form .a junction with the James' Bay  railway, thus Toronto will have the  benefit of :t competing line to the  Pacific slope, for it is understood that  the minister is of the opiuion that  much good will be tlone by allowing  the Grand Trunk to secure running  privileges over the lino. Although it  seems it round about way to reach" the  Pacific CoiisL.it glance at the map shows  that via the Grand Trunk. .lames Bay,  Lethbridge and Lhe Pacific route  freight wouiil not be moro' than .21  hours lonper in transmission, while  passenger trains mijrht bo run on an  equality of time with the Canadian  Pacific service. Mr. Blair has another  idea and one that will be carried out.  The Inter-Colonial railway, whose  western terminus now is Levis, is to  be given running privileges on the  Grand Trunk as far west as Montreal.  Here again Mr. Blair proposes to go  against the C.

THE DIAMOND JUBILEE  Lady Aberdeen's Plan to Commemorate  the Happy Event.   _-_  MONTREAL. February 4.��������� Lady  Aberdeen m an address io the  Montreal branch of the Aberdeen  Association outlines a ..plan .for .the  celebration by Lhe women of "Canada  of the Queen's diamond jubilee. Her  Excellency suggests that, the women  of Canada should organize what  would he Known as the Victorian  Order of Home Helpers in Canada.  Her Majesty, throuirh Lady Aberdeen,  .intimated her desire that the commemorative measures adopted here  might take the form of nursing and  caring for the sick and suffering in  isolated parts/of the Dnminion.  The hospitals and cottage hospitals  at present existing arc not sufficient, to  meet the wants of the people, and her  idea, is to have a band of women  workers to nurse and look after the  sick and stilfi-ring. Women eligible Lo  join Lhe order must not be under ?.(J  years of age, anel would receive a  thorough practical training in miti-  wiiery anil "first aid. to the injured.''  KxaminatioiiH testing the practical  knowledge and abilities of all the*  candiel.ati.'S woulil be ' iineler the*  supervision" .of a capable medical  boiirel. A biulge aue! uniform woulel  be provided all members of the- order,  ami it was also thought advisable that  members shonM be bound to the work  for a elefinite period of, perhaps, three  years. The order woulel be one of  which all women might be proud to  become members, and woulel be a  piinlic and national .institution. A  salary of about fi'20 a month woulel be  paid, anel the wejrkers woulel in no  way interfere with legitimate medical  work. The scheme is a noble one, and  through Lhe women e.f Canada, will  appeal to the -whole country.  It is proposed to start a one dollar  subscription fund for this object, so  that all willing can take part.

Shaking  palsy, a jerking of the eyes or head  as seen in the aged, St. Vitus  dance, locomotor ataxia and many  cases of rheumatism are caused by  a tension of the nerves caused iu  tho beginning by the kidneys.  Bright's disease and diabetes,  opposite conditions, have their  cause in the kidneys.  Catarrh and other diseases_.of the  bladder are caused by the kidneys  doing defective work, leaving the  urine in an inflammatory state.  Gravel, weak ankles, hands and  feet always wet with perspiration,  and many cases where there is a  lack of perspiration, are abnormal  conditions caused by abnormal  kidneys.  Varicocele, varicoso veins and  milk leg originate in defective  kidneys.  Curvature of the spine, iu old or  young, and gout aro caused by  deposits from the fluids of the body,  which shouldlbe carried away by  the kidneys.  A~<-cough or a fever may come  from congested kidneys. Constipation and femalo troubles may  arise from the same source.  Paraplegia is often tho result of  weak kidneys. Paralysis of half or  the whole body may have its fir&t  cause in the kidneys.  We see here quite a formidable  array of troubles which may bo  originated or fostered by these  prominent organs of excretion and  and we can'��������� readily'see tho great-  necessity for keeping this avenuo  for the expulsion of effete matter,  highly charged as it is with  chemical poisons, free and open.

A  section of vast undeveloped mineral  wealth yet in its infancy. Fast Kootenay has coal, copper, gold and silver  inines,   which   are   being   developed.  Tributary tn. nml dependant upon  this road for future shipment of ore,  anel supplies are lhe North Star and  Sullivan group of mini's numliering  100 claims or prospects. On Ferry  creek, are !)() moi'e. Weaver creek "iii,  Alove.'i Lake tui'l Htver '22. Bull river  anil Klk river 15, tlie St. Alury's river  anil tributaries over 100 Wilt! Morse  creek 00, Wasa and Lhe vicinity of  Tracy creek :-'(), a ml the largest coal  fielelupon the American continent.  Thus it will bu seen Mint (hero are over  500 minora! claims on the line of, and  tributary to this proposed road. The  Nor! ii Star can ship 100 tons daily, the  St. Eugene 50 Lo 70, lhe Dibble mine  has ore; sucked reatly for shipment,  several mines in Lhe vicinity of Tracy  creek have considerable ore on the  chiui]i. On Bull river there are at leasL  two copper properties that can become  producers at once, and there is no  doubt, that at leasL ten per cent of the  claims in this district would become  producers upon tho advent of a railroad into this valley.  Tho recent strikes of rich golel  quartz on Perry Creek, has caused  considerable excitement, and it is  reported that considerable machinery  will go into that vicinity this summer.  On Weaver Creek, another tributary  of the St. Mary's, are .a number of gold  quartz; claims that have been bonded  to Montana parlies. A mill sile has  been selected, and it is said that it  stamp mill will be in operation at an  early day.  O." G. Labarie hits purchased for  himself, Rufus H. Pope, AL P., Jay P.  Graves and others the'TMidnight,  which is the northern extension of lhe  famous North Star mine. The deal  was closed last week at Spokane.  The  Alidnight was located by George  Watson, of Calgary, Jay Usher and  George Hoggtirtli, and was bonded to  B. C. Kingsbury and others of  Spokane. As the election in the  States did not meet the expectations  of the syndicate, "Bryan and free  silver not scoring 11 victory," the  owners were notified that the deal was  olf. Air. Watson immediately made  the necessary.arrangements and closed  a deal with the parties above  mentioned. The ore is galena and  carbonates similar to what is found in  the North Star. Tho galena assays  about oO'oiinces in silver, and 53 to 00  poi cent lead, tho carbonates will run  from .$00 Lo .$100 per Ion. This has  always been "considered a choice  properly, and when developed may  prove ii tival to the North Star.  Tho North Star Company has a  large number of men at work taking  out carbonates, it is tho intention of  Lhe company to ship nothing but  carbonates this season. There are  several thousand tons ot galena on the  dump, and 1,000 tons of ore at  AIcGinty's. Teams lire hauling ore Lo  Lhe landing. The company will htiv.e  three and possibly four steamboats  transporting ore to Jennings,  Montana, for shipment via the Great  Northern Railway to the Great  Falls smelter.  Work on the Ibex of SMcan mine,  at Whitewater, is being pushed rapidly with a good force of men. The  main working tunnel, being run on  the cross vein, is in over 100 feet, in  mineralized ground, which is improving with every shot, Some fine specimens of galena were brought down  from the mine last week and are on  exhibition at this office. The company have sent up supplies sufficient  to last until next'May lo enable the  work to be carried on without delay5  ���������Kaslo Koolenaian.    s  There is grim humour in the fact  that some ot the strongest articles in  the journal lately killecl by the bishops  of Quebec were written by priests.  The theory that "Rome is a unit is as  great a myth as the old notion about  the priests being clever tacticians.  The attempt to coerce Manitoba was a  great blunder; the proposal to  manipulate the Privy Council was  idiotic: this last attempt to trample  out liberty will prove the most stupid  blunder or all.���������Winnipeg Tribune.
