FLEMING."  T.  ABRIEL,  NAKUSP.  B.C.  Real Estate, Mines and Insurance  For information on m'neral claims on  Cariboo Creek, write at once and __������t particulars.  . 2Smrtt  NOTE AND COMMENT.  The recent excitement iihout the  Iocaticn of the new government oflice  was premature. In agitations of this  kind the old rule applies. First get  vour government office. A government ollice for Itevelstoke is only  conspicuous in the provincial estimates  for the year ending June 30, ISOrf, by  its excessive absence. As for the protection of thu river bank here, it  figures at exactly Ihcsiinie amount as  the Herald estimated it would a few  weeks ago, aiiel that is nothing at nil.  Iti'f.-ict. outside of the sum of $lolO tor  a teacher, assistant, and general expenses under the head of education,  and the salaries of the gold commissioner and constable, Revelstoke ��������� is  elown for this magnificent sum of ij!200,  neither more nor less, to he expended  on her roads. The government have  not done this in ignorance. They  knew perfectly well of the Dominion appropriation' ��������� of . $10,000.00  on condition of an equal sum  being' forthcoming from Victoria  for the necessary work on our river  bank."' t.The Revelstoke newspapers  iind board of trode' have kept the  matter constantly in evidence. They  havo obviously washed their hands of  the whole business. , That they are  thereby violating a distinct pledge of  their old leader," Chief Justice Davie;  seems,'to cut no figure at all. The  claims of this community on the province*, have been assessed at two hundred dollars and very lucky to.get  even that.   .,��������� ��������� -  The scries'of articles on the various  groups of mining properties on the  upper' Liirdeau, which has been appearing in the Revelstoke Herald  for the past couple of months/seems to  have met with considerable approval  from our esteemed contemporaries ou  all sides. tThere is not one of them  hut what has appeared anel .re-appear-*  ed in the columns of the lower country,  coast and eastern press. They have  'been dished up as new and startling  discoveries. Kaslo has claimed them  for her own and Rossland has tried- to  work.in a lien oil thftn. 'No-less than,,  three of-them'appeared in .a.rrecent  issue of the Toronto Telegram 'headed  Slocan News and credited to the Koss-  lander. But with"e>ue or two "honor-  ahle exceptions it is very rarely that  they have been credited where they  were due. The lofty; soaring intellects  that control the lowtr country'press  naturally disdain to appeal* as collecting paragraphs through so. commonplace a medium its'the columns of a  contemporary.' They prefer to crib  an item holus bolus *and re-write a  couple of lines at the beginning, so as  .to make_it:kri*ad _iis__if_ciMung__fre}__  soine special and exclusive source of  information. The atmosphere of vast  cities like Rossland and Kaslo probably tends to some confusion of ideas of  ltietim iind tetim. In the rush and  hurry of getting ont large metropolitan sheets such as the Kootetiian and  Rosslander, the small country papers  naturally can only hope to yield their  modest quota to swell the world-  shaking columns and having done  their duty to die a natural death under the editor's table. What arc* the  miserable rags doing iu it country  whicli aheaely possesses the Koot-  enaian and Rosslander anyhow ?  '  R. H. RAMSEY,  House Painter-^"-"*  and Decorator  SIGN PAINTING A SPECIALTY  MAIN STREET, REVELSTOKE  BIG STRIKE ON SILVER CUP  Three Feet of Clear   Shippinj-   Ore   on  the Ledge.  "Malinger Monroe came out to Arrowhead last week to wire to Alessrs.  Dunn to Parrel, the owneis, the news  of a big ili-ike on the Silver Cup. The  tunnel on which the working party  has linen occupied for the last 7 or 8  months is completed anel lhe ledge  has been tappetl at a depth of 300  feet, cross-ct.tting eight, feet ofrledgc������  matter, of which three feet is a vein of  clear high grade galena and grey  copper ore. anil the balance* a splendid  concunlrating ore of higher quality  than any yet struck in the- ledge.  Fifteen ton's of fine shipping ore weie  taken out in cross-cutting. - Mr. Monroe is naturally jubilant over the  strike and consider-, the character of  tho Silver Cup ns tine of the gi cutest  mines in Kooienay to be now established beyond penidventure.

D0_GLAS ST.,  REVEL'STOKE  THE   SILVER   CUP  Eight Foot of Ore at the Intersection of  the Veins  Trout Lake City. B.C., March 22.  ���������In previous notes respecting the  Silver Cup'mine, I stated that two or  more veins of ore should be intersected  in the ciosscut. This is now clearly  demonstrated, as during the last few  days a vein eight feet ��������� wide has been  exposed, showing good galena for considerable, width, and concentrating  ore for its entire width. As far as I  can gather, this tunnel has yet to be  extended fifty or sixty feet before  striking the * original Cup vein. It  might he to the interests of the owners  to push the present tunnel on 100 or  more feet after the Cup vein is struck  to demonstrate if there is nor, yet  something good beyond.  This point is of considerable interest  to prospectors who are located on the  same veins. It will be the duty of  owners to prospect fully every pai-t of  their claims in order to know what  they really possess. I shall be very  much surprised if this section of the  country is not one ' of the best pro-  diicei-s in Wesrt Kootenay by the end  of the year. With an ore the value of  this, certainly efforts will he made to  get it to market. We shall see prospectors from the valley to the summit  of the hill trying to expose the hidden  wealth. The management of the Cup  deserve great credit, for the workmanlike manner in which the work is  earned out  The Sunshine continues as last week,  showing a large body of rich ore.  Brewster aud McCttllow are opening  on their claims near the Cup. AVe  heartily wish them good luck. Others  will soon follow suit.  A HIGH GRADE BELT.  Report on the North Fork- of. the lllecillewaet.  'By P. Leako, M.E , Revelstoke.)  Previous to the year 1SU0. not much  attention had been paid to this pari, of  AA7est Kootenay;* but. owing to the  diecovery, of the .Downie Creek pic-  perties, now owned by Mr. J. Grant,  the Government has built a trail from  Albeit Canyon to the,head waters of  this creek.' Oh this., trail'several rich  and extensive ore deposits have been  discovered,* umn.ng wliich we may  mention, the. Grant Group or claims  on the head-waters of Downie Creek,"  the Sir Walter and adjoining claims,  owned by Mr. _. McPherson, the claim  owned and worked hy Mr. Ben'Green,  etc.      '    " - ._     ��������� -  Geology.���������Proceeding along the trail  in a north-easterly, direction up the  lllecillewaet River, we' pass over an  .extensive belt of compact-limestone.  and continue in this formation until  we reach the properties on Downie  Creek. As wo pass up the valley,  large boulders of granite can be seen.  To the east of the limestone a, belt of  granite traverses ' more or less - the  whole range, and the cropping can *be  found possessing various dimensions  from Upper Kootenay' Like , to the  Big Bench 'The formation on both  sides of this granite belt contaiu highly  mineralized.quartz veins..The granite.  'is'evidently-in'ti'iisive. anil, appears to'  have had an intimate connection .with  the occurrence of the metalliferous deposits found in the adjacent areas on  both' sides of it. > The mineral, belt,  wliich pitsses from , Kootenay Lake  through lllecillewaet. Downie'Creek,  and north to the Big Bend, is extremely well-defined, and evidences of its e*x-  isteuce occur throughout the .entire  distance. It is also a high grade belt,  containing silver, golel, copper, lead,  and -as.you proceed further .north,  nickel.   ,- ,.  ' The Downie Creek pioperties occur  in the stratified limestone a small distance west of the tiiinsition of the  granite. , This is a similar citso to  many of the' Cornwall mines, where  ahneislf-the���������whulcs���������uf���������the���������ininei'iil-  wenith of that country occurs within  a distance of some two or three miles  on each side of the junction of granite  anil kill.is, and to a marked degree is  this seen near St. Just and St. Ives.  ���������The veins found on the Waverly and  Montague  and .adjoining  claims  em  Downie Creek, are inclosed in walls of  calcitc, and a tunnel has been driven  on the Waverly close to the hanging  wall, shi)\viug a   continuous   body   of  highly mineralized ore (at  this point  about  G*i   feet-  wide),   composed    of  quartz,    galena,    tetrahedrite ' (grey  copper),   with  some   hydrous    ferric  oxide, resnlting from the. decomposition of iron  nyrites,"and occasionally  stephanite  (brittle  silver)   and   cer-  argyrite (horn silver).   Of six samples  taken from this portion of the vein,  the average amount of silver per Lon  was  104 ounces,  some   picked  specimens running as high as 1,400 ounces  .per tun.   The total width of tho  vein  'is about '10 feet,  containing 0 feet of  good ore, fl feet on hanging wall and  S feet on footwall, the vein, in  conformity'"with others foiintl in Ibis district,   having  a  north-westerly   and  south-easterly trend, and an  easterly  underlie of about 2 feet to the fathi.in.  The cropping can be traced for many  cla'ms showing it   to   be  continuous  and following its natural course; and  about 1,000 feet west of this vein is also  found a parallel vein, having the s;>,nie  course and dip, the ore being much of  the-same character, containing,  however, more gold but a less percentage  of copper.   The Tangier Claim  is on  this vein, anel assays taken  went  100  ounces of silver anel li ounces gold per  ton.     Owing to the richness  of the  ore found in such considerable quantities,   the   district  is  without    doubt  destined to heroine one of   the  most  active camps in the Province.     From  the Sir AA'alter and adjoining claims  (16 miles from Albert Canyon) some  very high silver assays have been obtained, viz: 300 and 1,000 ounces; Ihe  veins, however, are not so wide as the*  Downie   Creek ones.���������Report of   the  Minister of Mines. ���������  THE BLACKBURN GROUP.  Another of Ferguson's Leading Grcups.  which will be hoard from.  The Blackburn group is situated tit  the head of G'llena Creek, a tribulaiy  nf the north fork of the upper Lardeiiii  river. It was located in 1892 by Chas.  Blackburn. The .ledge i.s a contact  ledge of slate and .limestone, with a  splendid surface showing and several  claims have been staked on it. A good  deal of assessment work has been done  on the**e claims, but the inaccessible  character of tho country h"s hitherto  prevented development. The ore is  galena and grey copper. Several  assays have have been 'made of ore  from this ledge shewing an average of  about. K00 oz. in silver and ijilO to $15  ir. gold. With the transportation  facilities which piojtsct.ed railroads and  roiiils will give next season, there'-can  be no doubt this group ot claims will  take a prominent, rauk muting Ferguson shippers in the near future.

Too many English companies.. are .ponderous in their  methods, extravagant iu their  expenses and frequently not too  ���������wise iu the selection of their  luanaging'stalT. The American or  Canaeiian syndicate is generally  conducted on tho same principles  tis". govern any' well regulated  business���������eeonomicalraanagement,  hard work and plain unostentatious methods. The i-esult is  t hat the American concern makes  money for its shareholders and the  English company's profits are  eaten up by various kinds of  extravagance. -,  ���������Of the American company the  Le Roi, and of the English the  Hull Mines, Limited, may bo taken  rs,conspicuous examples. "We are  aware that criticisms and comparisons may be resented by some  ���������whose sore spots we may be called  upon.to touch, but The Heisald  did not go to the expense of  sending a representative into the  mining camps-for the purpose pf  praising _everything he saw, or  serving up the sort ot fulsome  gush which is too often seen in the  columns of even leading Canadian  .journals. Our representative went  out with the object of as nearly as  possible getting at the bottom of  things and his letters have contained candid impressions and  _.f rank .opinions that, may not have  along the route of the tramway,  ane*. which is being daily augmented by ore buckets breaking  and dropping off the cable ?  0. Is it true, as stated in Nelson,  that the tramway is expensive,  wasteful, old fashioned and inefficient ? If so, why is it not discarded and replaced with a  modern, automatic, stationary  rope tramway?  7. Why should it, as stated in  Company's annual report, cost  ������02,000, or $310,000, for the management of the Hall Alines, limited,  when in the opinion of practical  men less than half that sum  should suffice ?  S. Why is it considered necessary to have the head managing  done in Loudon, England, and  how many thousand dollars a year  are expended in cablegrams ?  0. How many of the head managers, sub-managers, assistant  managers, experts, -assistant experts, engineers, assistant engineers, private secretaries, etc.,  etc., etc., of the Hall Mines have  taken a practical course iu mining  engineering, or haA'e had any  previous experience in actual  mining, or know anything at all  about mining ? '    '  10. How many of the officials of  the mine are useful as well as  ornamental, and how many are  ornamental and not useful ?  11. Are any of the officials overpaid and under-worked ?  12. Is the mine likely to ever  pay a dividend, and if so, when,  and how much ?  Our chief reason for asking this  dozen of questions in this public  way is that our representative  was notable while in Nelson to  secure any information whatever  from the offices of the company,  though he called several times " by  appointment. There are many  people both in and outside 'of  Nelson who would be exceedingly  interested in hearing these  questions answered. The people of Nelson are naturally proud of both their  great mine and their smelter, but  their pride and satisfaction would  be ten fold greater if they could  feel confiilent that the enterprise  was being wisely and economically  managed, that it would pay its  shareholders a reasonable dividend, and that it would not eventually prejudice the whole Slocan  country in the eyes of the British  investor by turning out to be a  secoucl edition of that remarkable  and unfortunate exhibition...of ex-  travagaut incompetence we remember so well in this country���������  the Sir John Lister Kaye fiasco,  which was disastrous alike to the  British investors aud to the progress and reputation of the Territories.  ���������Calgary Herald.  ABERDEEN  OPENS THE SECOND SESSION OF  PARLIAMENT  LEADING MEMBERS PRESENT  suited everybody, but were at any  rate founded on the, actual truth  "as he saw it, aud were not paid for  by  anybody .either   in   cash   or  siiares.  But to return to the Le Roi.   Ic  'is probably not as rich a mine as  the Silver King, the Hall Company's property, though one is a  gold and the other a silver proposition; nor has it Ave- believe been  working any longer. And yet the  Le Roi has ' paid $3*i0,000 in  dividends, while the Hall Mines,  Limited, haven't; paid a dollar.  The HrciiAUi would not intentionally do the Hall Mines an  -injustice; its desire is to encourage  mining and build up the country,  and in the furtherance of this  object we submit a few questions  which we hope will be answered  by some one qualified or  courageous enough to do so:  ��������� 1. If, as reported by the "expert"  at the Silver King, there are  100,000 tons of ore in sight, with a  full force of 150 men in the mine,  ��������� why is the smelter so often compelled to close down for want  of ore ?  2. Why should the very long  tramway oi the company be  burdened carrying down waste  rock, which has to be sorted at the  smelter, when thousands of  dollars a year could be saved by  iiaving the ore sorted at the mine?  3. Was full advantage taken of  gravity in the arrangements for  handliug and shipping ore? If  jiot, why uotV.  ���������1. Why was it necessary to keep  ' a. gang of men iu tho middle of the  tramway shovelling ore from one  set of buckets to another, when  ������uy ordinarily efficient tramway  should dfcrry the ore direct and  almost automatically?  5.What use will be made of the  thousands of dollars worth of ore  scattered   over    the    mountains  The Speech from the Throne���������Opposition Rank and File to Oppose the  Government Measures���������Increase of  Majority���������Fifty Workmen Laid Off.  Ottawa, March 25.���������His Excellency  the Earl of Aberdeen, Governor-General ot Canada, drove from Rideau  Hall to Parliament Hill this afternoon  during a violent snow storm to open  the second session of the eighth parliament of the Dominion.  All the members of the Government  were present with the exception of Dr.  Borden, Minister of Militia, who is  still suffering from the effects of his  accident. The leading members of the  Conservative party were also in their  places, with the exception of Sir Chas,  Hibbert Tupper, who has gone to Nova  Scotia to lake part in the Provincial  elections.  The Queen's speech dealt with the  Manitoba school question, tho  Diamond Jubilee, tariff revision, prohibition plebiscite, the franchise and  the restoration of the Controllers to  Cabinet rank.  The French Conservatives talk of  moving an amendment to the address  in reply to the speech from the throne,  expressing condemnation of the school  question. The present disposition  among the rank and file of the opposition is to offer strong objection to the  Government measures.  The session will find the. Government  majority increased by nearly fifteen  votes. Five seats which were carried  by Conservatives last June are now  vacant, and three seats which went  Conservative at the general election  have since been won by the Liberals.  There are two constituencies now represented hy Liberals which were unrepresented last session. Eight members will be introduced of which seven  are Liberals and one Conservative/ 1  Three hundred, and thirteen Hull  workmen have been employed continuously on the work eif reconstruction  of the western block since the fire.  Fifty were laid olf today, and Conservatives connect this with the fact that  the Wright election is now over.  A MOUNTAIN TRAGEDY.

During   the   night    the  insurgents had pushed forward until  Ihey occupied a convenient position  for the attack. About 0 a. m. the  insurgents artillery opened fire upon  the Turkish block house. * As soon as  lhe range had been accurately ascertained the insurgent shells poured into  the roof of the fort and it was soon  rendered untenantable. Eventually  nothing remained for the Turks but  extermination or evacuation. . The  Mussulmans preferred the latter-and  the garrison left the fort and commenced a retreat upon Suda relying  upon the Turkish warships in' the bay  to save them from the Christians. The  warships of the Sultan acted promptly  in opening a badly directed lire upon  the insurgents, to cover the retreat of  the Mussulmans. The Christians  pushed forward steadtlv, pressing hard  upon the rear of the Tui ks and keeping up a continual skirmish of tire  upon the Mussulmans.  As this despatch is being sent, fighting between Turks and Christians  near Keratide is still in progress and  .trLthe_r_p-s_iiltJ_s_as_-ye_t_i^  Turkish garrison ar, Malaxa lost heavily  during the retteat.

"Yc can't do anything with thai  club, Lib! If you'd had your pistol  stid 0' that flddlin' club hewouldn't  of  gol  away, in   the   first  place!"  "There he Is!"  "Where? AVhere?"

It $. a novel and  striking sight to see immense scows on  Arrow' L:ike each carrying eight big  freight cars and being slowly pulled by  a little steam tug. The cats are run  on to the scow tit Arrowhead and tugged to Nakusp or Robson, where they  are again placed on the railway.  A *N"OV__"t'UI'.  Tin-: Herald representative was one  of a party which on arriving at X.ikusp,  .the lakeside terminus of   the   C.P.R.  short line into Snndon. found that the  regular boat, would not call  for them  for possibly :-Hi hours. -  As   there was  nothing to do at iS'iikusp but watch a  hundred men   building  a   big steamboat for the C. P. R���������  which  however  interesting for a time  might,  soon become monotonous,  the   obliging   proprietor of the big saw null at Nukus-p  was persuaded to send  the  traveller's  "   up to Arrowhead in a little   tug  used  lor towing logs. etc.   They told us she  would be crowded if there   were   two  passengers be-side   the   engineer,   and-  theye being eight or nine  in the party  ���������not to speak of baggage���������wts  held it  council of war to decide what should  be done.

Rut  then we ran no risks- of being capsized  ' by ;i sudden squall, which at' any  minute is liable to come down one of  the great gulches between the mountains which skirt the lake "on both  sides.

Mr. Jno.A.Whittier,  the president and manager, a Prince  ��������� Edward Tslaneler. has been three ycais  in the Slocan, nnd while Tills Herald  ��������� mnn was in Kaslo drew a check for  3 823,009 which represented the last  instalment nf profits he and his companions had made out of the Good-  enough. This fuel, alone is sufficient to  indicate thiil, the mine is well named.  During the short time the Good-  enough mine has been working 303  tons e)f iilver-lead ore havo been  shipped to' the smelters at. an average  net value of $'"00 per ton. This is a  niiirvelloiit* record. The richness of  this mine nnd its neighbour the Reco  eclipses all others in the-Slocan, the  Reco ore having gone as high as  SlT.CCO for- two - carloads, and its  average shipping output being $4,000  per car, or $'200 per "ton. The Good-  enough people will shortly commence  a iiOO foot tutinf-1 lo tap the vein at a  lower depth. These extremely rich  veins are invariably narrow. The  Reco-Goodenongh vein is only from  2 to IS inches in width, with occasional  blank spots. In the Reco, which has  done more development work than  the Goodenough, President" Harris  claims to have $2,000,000 worth of ore  in sight. He says that sum would not  buy the mine.  MAY  RESIGN  HIS  POSITION  Van Home is Strongly Opposed to J. J.  Hill���������Billy Brady Wants Bob Fitzsimmons to Meet Corbett Again���������  Gentleman Jim May go to Australia  Minneapolis. March 23.���������The Times  has tlie following special from New  York: Sir William Van Home, president of tbe Canadian Pacific, will arrive here loday and Thomas Lowry, of  Minneapolis, is here now. There is to  be a highly important meeting of the  Canadian Pacific nnd Soo people this  week, ostensibly to consider the construction of the Crow's Nest Pass  division of tho former. It w-as stated  on Wall street that the real reusou of  the meeting was to discuss President  Vau Home's resignation, which it is  ascertained is bound to be handed in  before April 1. I h is said he is constantly tind earnestly opposed to J. J.  Hill and all his plans'and that this  opposition. ��������� not beiug shared bv Mac-  kay, Angus, Smith anil Lord Mount  Stephen makes his position more untenable than it was a year ago when  he was about to resign, but was persuaded to remain. .' It is believed Manager Shaiighnessy will succeed Van  Home. An eminent railroad financier  said: "I inn amazed that ,tho Canadian Pacilic allowed Hill to get control of the Duluth", Superior and Western. To lose Mint roud is a blow to  the Canadian Pacific and it is bound  to feel it severely. It leaves the Duluth, 'South Shore and Atlantic missing link a road, that for all practical  purposes begins nowhere and goes nowhere." Hill muse be a power in Canadian railway affairs even' now."  A STIK IN PUGILISM.  San Francisco, March '25.��������� Billy  Brady is still on the war path and  seems detormined to find some way of  making'Fitz give his late opponent  one more chance before he puts into  eil'ecc his announced retirement from  the business.'  "It's all verv well for Fitz to say he  will never tight again," he declared.  "You will,' remember that Corbett  made such a statement a dozen times  and yet he was dragged into a battle  with Fitz." Well, now that our man is  the under dog, we propose to reverse  "matters and, make the foieigner give  Jim another fight, whether he wants  to or not. Of course Fitz will be able  to stave this thing/m? for a'year if he  wants to,,hut after that public opinion  will get too hot for him and he will  either have to fight or get out of the  country. - -  "If Jim takes my advice he will immediately 1 lectin to get public sympathy to his side by accepting offers  from Maher, Goddard. Sharkev or any  other old dub who is after a fight. He  can lick three or four fellows.of that  calibre in a month, and then he wiH be  jn a position to demand satisfaction  from i'itz.  "A condition exists in the pugilistic  world at present which was never  known to exist before. Yoit fellows  may understand the'newspaper^ business, hut; you don't understand the  fighter. I do. I have made that kind  of thing my business for ftvc"ye*ars."'  Brady is " talking about going with'  Corbett to Australia, and showing the  Antipodeans how well Jim can act.  He thinks the trip will do the pugilist  good and help to take his mind off his  recent defeat.

Dr. Black says,  sooner than have such a stain on the.  party. Liberals of this country would  hurl Premier Laurier and his government from power with as little compunction as a tin key would gobble up  a blue bottle iiy.  The Globe says in reply: If the  Ablegate has any notion that he is to  pass judgment on the acts of legislators! we can only, say he is very  deeply mistaken, and will very soon  discover'his mistake. The laws of  one I this country are made and admistered  precisely irs if there were no papa  ablegate, and for that matter no such  place as Rome. No legislation will be  placed on the statute hook because  ot his presence" here. If this prediction be not fulfilled, we shall be quite  prepared to accept Dr. Black's predictions of disaster to the Liberal  party. 0  There is almost a panic; in the civil  service over the thi eatened dismissals.
