TROUT LAKE ClTY.j  Work on the American���������Rich Find on  Gainer Creek���������The Weather Against  the Camp.  Fr">m Our Own Corresponelont.  Trout Lark City, July S.���������Four  men are working running it tunned on  the lead 011 the* American claim on the  north shore of Trout Lake, about four  miles from the short*. Thu claim is  bonded bv a private Vancouver syndicate. A carload of ore from this claim  will be shipped shortly.  A small steamer would pay on Trout  Lake, anel would be an immense boon  both to prospectors who want to Ret  out on the hills and to those engaged  in developing claims on the shores of  the hike, both for-getting in supplies  and shipping ores. Some very rich,  gold bearing leads have been struck at  tin* far end of the lake.  Your correspondent was misinformed in the statement that Mr. A. Monro  is to superintend the opeention of the  London & Vancouver Financial and  Development Oo. on the Silver Queen  and. Black Beat*.  Mr. L. Thompson has recorded two  claims Yellowstone and Fridnv Morn  on Gainer Creek. He reports five feet  of clear high grade galena on the  surface.  The continuous rain is acting as a.  great drawback to both prospecting  and development work in the Lardeau  anel Fish Creek camps. Prospectors  art. driven into the hotels in the different little towns arid mine owners will  not engage men w*ith a- prospect of  having to keep them in camp for an  indefinite period before they can start  to work. ' i," , - " '���������'_������������������'  . Messrs. Dunn to Ftirrell intend to do  some'work on the Free Coinage, the  adjoining claim to the Silver Cup,.this  season.  A Correction.  A couple of items going the rounds  under the head of Kootenay News call  for-some remarks. "The Ottawa in  Lardeau country, near Trout*Lake;* has  been sold for $20,000 td'the B. C. Exploration Co.. of Taeonia.*' This is an  item clipped from onr columns and cle-  rived from Mr. Jos. Young of Spokane  ancTOossland, wltonegotiated thecleal.  Unfortunately it is not exactly correct,  as there seems to have been considerable difficulty about the first payment*,  $1000. Thu owners of the. Ottawa, H.  Slmltz 'and G. White of Trout .Lake,  went 'down._to_ Kossland ..with. Mr.  Young to gct-the money-and .returned  without it, and when last seen by our  Herald correspondent in Trout'.Lake  last week were still anxiously; awaiting'  the arrival of Mr. Young "with the  necessary'collateral.' -The other item,  stating, that the Horne-Payne syndicate have recently purchased the Broadview- for $15,000, the Bad Shot group  for .$150,000 and the True' Fissure for  $50,000 is apparently evolved out of the  imagination of the author. The Horne-  Payne people bonded the Broadview  last fall anel have been steadily working on it with, excellent results .ever  since. They bonded'the True Fissure  lust February and Jas. Dixon." agent  for Dunn & Farre.l of Vancouver, bonded the Bad Shot group for $150,000  last May. '        . ,  ABSTRACT OF RECORDS.  IllecilIewaet"-Divisio"n-for-Month-of-June'r  LOCATION'S.

Transportation, Mail and Other   Difficulties in the Lardeau Centre.  From Our Own C01raspondc.it.  Ferguson, July 3.���������Tliu citizens of  Ferguson tiro all mil on the warpath in  frills, paint and feathers, anil considering all things tlieyv are not to be  blamed.  The Transportation Co. handling  freight and passengers comes in for the  hardest kick. It is almost impossible  to got goods in and wholly impossible  for p'assengurs to come here direct  from Thoinpsons's Landing. The present method is to take passengers to  Trout Lako City and either compel  Ilium to stay there. 01* hire hors'.s to  come up here with. Yesterday three  ladies were compelled to walk from  the forks oE the road to Ferguson, a  distance of four miles. A new slage  anel freight line* running direct from  the landing to Ferguson,would receive  the entire support of the community.  The next kick is the. way in which  the camp is supplied with fresh meat.  There are fully 200 people living here  who cannot get any meat at all, and  part of tho time the hotels are out.  All the meat for the mines has to be  packed through here. So it would  seem businesslike to supply them from  here and save packing, four miles. A  good live butcher is needed.  Another kick comes in for lhe Town-  site Company on account of their lack  of enterprise in opening up the town.  They appear to be playing Rip Van  Winkle.- However, they are hurting  themselves more than any one else. It  is only necessary to see - Ferguson to  understand this.  The weather causes a lot of grumbling and every one is cranky. It has  been nothing but rain for the last few  clays. The roads are^in .a beastly state  although the first four miles are the  best between here and the Landing.  A description of .the operations of  the Horne-Payne Co., which recently  appeared in your valuable paper makes  it seem as if their buildings were a  mile from Ferguson. Asa. .matter of  fact their huildings almost touch the  boundary of the townsite and are only  about half a mile from the part of the  town already built on.1       ,_,  Developments to-day- tend towards  making Ferguson the best and liveliest  town in West. Kootenay this coming  winter.- The mines are all holding their  -own in showing,-with some, .looking a  gre'ateleal lietter','"Juid' there**,"is every  prospect of the Horne-Payne people  pitching.in and doing their best to  make Ferguson a town of strength and  commercial capacity. If they do. it  will make things fairly hum for with  the money they have'they can add  srreatly to the growth of the place.  Their help, together with its splendid  tctual situation and resources behind  it, will build Ferguson rapidly.  The popular mining recorder of Revelstoke, Mr. Wm. Viekers, is in town.  New families every day come in and  already Ferguson numbers fully 300 of  a population.'  Inspector Fletcher ought to run in  here and wait two weeks for his mail  and then he might make such representations to the Post Office Department that would result in a tri-weekly  mail. There are over 800 people in and  ai-ound-Ferguson,i_with_mails^_coniing  in only once a week, and then only by  the courtesy of any citizen who will  go to the city of Lake Trout for it.  There are over $500,000 invested in  mines immediately around ns. and the  miners can only get their mail once, a  week. How they can do business is a  wonder. Frequently special messengers are sent to the Landing with mail.  The town is excited this afternoon  over the great showing Arthur Cunningham is making in his claim just  adjacent to town on the Broadview  Hills. The claim is known as '"Bruce,"  anel lies on the side hill in the timber  only 3-lths ot a mile from our main  street.  The sawmill is running full handed,  and buildings will soon go up on every  hand.  We want the outside world to know  that if they intend coming to Ferguson they have to walk four miles anyway, and they might as well walk the  whole distance from the landing in.  Any one putting.on a direct stage line  from Ferguson will be treated by our  citizens as a public benefactor, and receive all the aid each and every one at  Ferguson can render.

June 26���������I have  been in Tiast Kootenay since 1st  Slarch, and have visited Wasa Creek,  Elk River, Bull River, Moyie Lake,  Perry Creek and other promising  camps, and have located three claims,  two on Tracy Creek and one on Elk  River. Tracy Creek prospects very  favorable in golel and copper. There  aro V-try large showings on Galena  and St. Eugene on Moyie Lake*, also  on North Star on St.'-Mary's river, but  on account of the huge amount of  wash over this district, claims arc  difficult to locate.  I am leaving here today via Toby  Creek, over the divide to the Duncan  River, and to the head waters of the  North Fork of the Lardeau, about  eight miles from Ferguson, to the celebrated Glengarry ledge on which the  Glengarry anel Highland Group companies are now actively engaged in  developing iheir most promising pro  perties* When I get through  this trip I will let you know my  ion of the district over which I  prospected.  |!

He said in  pari: 'Standing here for the first time  on this classic ground, in the Athens  of the new world, common gratitude  makes it impossible that I should forbear to do homage to those great men,  who, the other day, moved among you  whose inspiration was esentiiilly  British, who were among those who  gave my young mind its earliest and  noblest stimulus: Emerson, Holmes,  Longfellow, Lowell.  'These are names that must not pass  away. This great nation is justly  proud of its democracy.

POLITICAL  THE DEFEAT OF MARC1L  N  MAGDALEN  Its All in the Kootenay Guide  THE     SENATE     SMASHERS  Discord in the Ranks���������The Drummond  County Deal���������Dobell to Succeed to  the High Commissionership.  Montreal, July 0.���������Speaking of the  defeat of Marcil, in Magdalen Islands,  La Patrie says , it was caused by discord in the Liberal* ranks, and adds :  " Those behind the scenes know that  the attitude'of the Senate at the last  session was due to certain persons who  call themselves followers ot the Laurier  Cabinet, but would not hesitate at anything to destroy it. Ministers have  the most complete proofs of intrigues  which took place and which led Sir  Mackenzie Bowell to believe he could  precipitate a new appeal to the people  with the chance of a Conservative  victory. We make these observations  to put the Liberals on their guard  against acts of certain malcontents  ready to adopt any pretext to show  disunion in our ranks."
