White safely off his  mind, and having secured the plum of  the Assistant-Postmastership for a  good Grit and a staunch constituent  of his own, seems to have woke up to  the fact that there is a place called  Kootenay somewhere in the west,  which has heen endeavoring to attract  his august attention for some time  past. A daily mail service via Revelstoke to the lower country has heen  arranged and at last sif ter a trifling delay of three months the Big Bend  contract has been let. With all due  difference to t$ie World and other  dyed-in-the-wool Grit journals the  people of Kootenay do not look upon  this long delayed move as evidence of  the intense. interest taken by the  Dominion government in the progress  and development of this province.  On the contrary they ~re distinctly of  the opinion that a wide-a-wake government should have had a daily mail  ready to run as soon as the daily train  service started, while the people in  Big Bend want to know why their  ni'inthly mail contract was not given  when advertised, and the' people in  Ltitdeau are anxious to find.out how  much longer Mr. Mulock intends to be  considering over the establishment of  the promised weekly mail into Ferguson, and how long they are supposed  to be going to put up with - a weekly  mail, with easy, daily communication  with Arrowhead, anyhow.    *  pedantry, will be unavailing and  Klondike, which seems to be the  favorite rendering, will probably" become the accepted name of the new  El Dorado of the North,  Dealers in.".

Wholesale and Retail Druggists,  Mccarty block.  Geo. T. Mallory, Mgr., Itevelstoke Branch.  The arrangements for Yukon arrived  at by the wiseacres of the Dominion  Cabinet include two absurd and impracticable regulations. A royalty of  10 per cent, on claims turning out  $300 or less monthly, and 20 per cent,  on those above that sum. .Every alternate claim is to be reserved by the  government. Two regulations shewing less grasp of the conditions prevailing in a mining- camp were never  framed by any body of legislators.  Sifton, the new hayseed Minister of  the Interior, has ��������� the mines of the  territories under his. department and  these regulations bear the mark of his  bumptious ignorance. There are  some people, whose sole idea of meeting a new condition of affairs is to get  the government to rush out new laws,  new orders, new "regulations, hit or  miss, let her go. This is precisely the  notion*which would appeal to a person  of Sifton's uient=-l calibre. -' If he  will file his regulations in that same  pigeon hole where the clerks of his department laid" away, to their eternal  repose the papers of the Revelstoke  land owners, and send. out a party of  surveyors and working men to find  and build a practicable all-Uie-yenr-  round route through Canadian territory to the Yukon, it would-be a  good deal more to the"poiut.  , While the desire on the part of the  Dominion government to turn the  gold now being taken out of the Canadian territory of Yukon into some  'more distinct benefit to Canada than  the enrichment of adyentnrei-s from  Seattle and San Francisco, is a'.laudable': one, it is not so easy to lay one's  finger on Vany .- legislative * measure  enacted in .thisjdirec-tie'ii, .-/which-will  not- defeat'its own object. .A*:royalty  on the gold collected,"ifr.two exorbitant will- be " simply nncollectable.  There is-no way of getting at the  amount of gold taken out by a placer  miner, unless he chooses to name it  himsely. 'A small royalty on gold  going out of the conntry might probably be enforced, but the 10 and 20 percent, which the cabinet proposes to  establish would provoke a feeling of  hostility. against the ��������� government  authorities, which would inevitably  le-icl to a dangerous collision. Besides  wliich it will have an inevitable ten-  elency to. .divert the .gold away, from  AT  HOME.

Foley.  J. J. FOLEY,  -IljK.'t i' Propriuto;.  Canadian business, centres, or at all  events the euornie-us proportion of it  which will under such an exorbitant royalty ^be smuggled "out  of the country. A regulation  again compelling miners to take  out a license, and to swear allegiance  to the Crown before receiving it,  would add a few thousand temporary  subjects to Her Majesty, but would  not prevent American miners spending  their money in the cities of Washington, Oregon and California. The  establishment of custom houses on  every route leading to, Klondike re-  quires no fresh legislation, and will  inevitably turn the bulk of the trade  of the Yukon to Victoria and Vancouver. The new El Dorado of the  Arctic Circle ought to raise these two  cities into first rate importance in the  Dominion in point of wealth and pop-  ulatiDU. It is for the business men of  these places and not for our legislators  to see that Cinadiv reaps her full share  of the golden harvest. It will not  probably last. Five years will, if the  experience of California. Kootenay,  Cassiar and Ciiritxro be repeated, be  all tbe time there is to which to look  forward before the stores of gold  which are easily accessible, become  exhausted. It is for our coast merchants and shipowners to see that not  a moment is lost in seizing the fleeting opportunity of the time. If  promptly and euterprisingly handled  it should see Vancouver and Victoria  take a rise unparallelled in the history  of the Dominion. The main point to  which they should turn their attention  is the establishment of an all year  route with regular steamship lines  connecting their ports with it. Permanency and regularity of communication are chief factors in the struggle  for the Yukon trade.  Klondike, Klondyke, Clondike, Clon-  dyke, which is it to be. The Toronto  Globe is making a brave effort to  popularize Thron-diuck. which is stated to be the correct method of spelling  the Indian name, River of Fish, from  which Klondike has lieen corrupted.  The    attempt,      which    smacks    of  THE WAGNER GROUP.  Development Discloses a Big  Shewing  of High.Grade'Ore....  The Rossland Miner says : '.' W. S.  Rugh returned yesterday from a visit  to the Wagner group, owned --by him  and other Rossland people, and situated in the!'Duncan river country.  Mr. Rugh was accompanied by some  of the other owners' and*;also._by. W.  -A.r Carlyle, provincial * mineralogist."  Mr. "Carlyle stopped on the" way'up' to"  examine.the Silver "Cup mine,-near  Ferguson, owned by the Horne-Payne  syndicate. Tt is'expected he will make  a special report to the provincial government on the properties he-saw on  the trip."  Mr. Rugh is greatly pleased with the  Wagner group. It was the first time  he and his associates had ever seen it,  though they have been interested in it  for,three years. The group consists  of six claims, five or six miles up Hall  creek, a tributary of the Duncan  river, which runs in from the west.  A_The_Diincan_and__the___Lardeau_ai'e.  the two claims of the group which  have the best showings. A. tunnel is  being run in"oh lhe vein on tbe Duncan, and a shaft is also being , sunk.  Enough work has'"been done, Mr.  Rugh says, to show very large bodies  of massive galena, running from "100  to $210 in lead and - silver. As the  grade is high and the ore is abundant,  the great value of the property can  hardly be doubted.  A large force of men is at work on  the Duncan and ore is being taken  out very rapidly." Mr." Rugh'hopes to  be able to to make shipments by way  of the Duncan river down to Kootenay  lake. A charter was granted by the  provincial legislature last winter for  the building of a railroad from Kootenay lake up the Duncan river to the  mining districts of that region. The  opening of the great body nf ore on  the Duncan claim by Mr. Rugh and  his friends will doubtless hasten. the  building of this road.  [The Wagner group is owned chiefly by the Porters and Warners of  Spokane.���������Eo Herald.]  C. P. R. Reaching Out  Engineer Perry and corps of surveyors were engaged the past week in  making a survey of a line from Three  Forks to Bear Lake, it being the intention of the C. P. R. to build a road  between these points. It is also quite  probable the road will be pushed on  from Bear Lake to Whitewater. The  road will be built an an early date, it  being the evident purpose of the company to get into the rich mineral sections as early as possible and participate in the handling of the Threat ore  'output. The proposedroad will greatly  benefit this section in that when it is  in running order it will bring most of  the travel and freight thls_way instead  of it going out by the way of Kaslo.���������  New Denver Ledge.

The News Advertiser has the following interview with Mr. Grant-Govan :  Mr. Grant-Govan, one of the principal shareholders in the B. C. Gold  Fields, Ltd., isatthe Hotel Vancouver,  having arrived here on Sunday. Mr.  Grant-Govan came out from England  a month or two ago aud since-then  has been visiting various places and  mining properties in the Kootenay.  The Company above mentioned, of  which he is a member, is now. devoting most of its attention to tho development of its 19 properties near  Albert Canyon just west of Illecillewaet, where as Mr. Gr.int-Govan  expressed it ton reporter, the company  has about 1,000 acres of mines. The  two principal mini's are' thu Tangier  and Waverley on both of which a  large amount of development work  has been done. On the Tangier,  which is valued by the company at  $1,500,000, the assays run 'at about  three) ounces in gold and GO of" silver-  to tho ton," while the average from  the Waverley is about half an ounce  of gold and 1-10 ounces of silver. On  Monday the building of 25 miles of  wagon road to the railroad at Illecilli-  waet was commenced by Messrs.  John Ross, of Toronto, and McDon-  ough, 300 men were put on the work,  and the road is expected to be completed in six weeks. From'the end of  that time until Christmas the company  expects to get out 1,000 tons of ore,  which they gaurantcc will go over  $100 to the ton. This will be shipped  to Swansea for smelting, perhaps to  Vancouver and then by ship, anel perhaps eastward over the C. P. R., Mr.  Grant-Govan dues not know which.  "Then," he added, " we expect to put  in a railroad in the spring, anel we  think we can get out 5,000 tons per  week. Eventually the company will  probably have its own smelter."  Mr. Grant-Govan deprecates as not  being the best for the country, the  practice of companies, some of which  have a good deal of money of securing  and doing a small amount of development work on all of a large number of  prospects instead of working one or  .two and making mines of them.    He  CORRESPONDENCE.  The Critics of  the Waverley Mine Ltd.  Challenged.  TO  THE  E--ITOI"  OF THE HEIt.VLD :  Sir,���������Tho British Columbia Mining  Critic, the Rosslander and the Mining  Record - have recently published  utic-les dealing in a disparaging manner with the Waverley Mine, and calling in question the price paid for that  propeity to Mr.' Gr.-int-Gov.in's Company. I shall deal more piirticul-'rly  with the article appearing in the Mining Critic of the 2Hh ultimo. The  motto of the journal is : "I am nothing if not critical," and evidently the  it-tide was composed by the man  who adopted this motto. I would en-  qire, is he anything else but critical?.  Is he well informed? Are his statements ill-curate ? Ho is uudoubtedly  critical, hut-it was always my opinion  that decent criticism is usually embellished with tit least some degree of  knowledge, and information as to facts.  All those who have tho gooel of British Columbia "lining enterpiise at  heart, can only since*rely deplore the  publication and circulation of such  despicable, journalism as this, and in  hope that I may in sonie'slight degree  be able to arrest the garbage of such  unqualified penc-illers, I make the following challenge :*-  * "The British _ Columbia Mining  Critic shall nominate an accredited  mining engineer of- this province,  whose appointment shall be ratified  by .the umpires, to thoroughly examine the Waverley Mine. He shall  submit his report to three' umpires',,  one to be'named by the British Col-  r.mbiaJMinirig Critic, one by myself,  and the.other, to be chosen, by^ these  two.     ���������'���������"     " " ...  If in their opinion the present shewing in the Waverley .mine-is not one  of the largest and one of the most valuable mineral deposits yet discovered  iii'British Columbia, I shall pay the  usual fees of the expert's examination  and the charges of the umpiies, and  also shall hand the proprietors of the  Milling Critic, a cheque for $500. On  the other hand, if the property is reported as being of exceptionally great  value which we have represented and  which litis been represented in the  prospectus of the Waverley Mine  -Limiteel.--thcii-the-Miinng-Critic-shall-  pay all such expenses of tho inspection  and in addition baud me a cheque for  $500.  As the locator of _.this propeity, and  now having no further inteiest in it, I  have in justice to Mr. John Grant, to  the Gold Fields of British Columbia,  to Mr. Grant-Govan and to the Waverley Mine Limited, endeavored by this  challenge to explode anel terminate  such unjust criticism, and in doing so,  I am inclined to think that-1 will be  accomplishing a distinct benefit for  the good of (lie mining industry of the  Province. I venture to say lhat I  have more knowledge of mines and  mining than can be acquired at the  desk of an incipient journal, that is  nothing unless it is critical, and I am  disposed to believe that a few exposures of this kind woulel le-ad the public,  to think that this journal's- motto  could aptly be deprived of its last  three words.  I am, Your obedient servant,  Ole Sandbkkg.  Illecillewaet, B.C., July 21th, 1*307.

Klondike Proverbs  Tho richest gold field is always just  the other side of the range.  A job in hand is worth ever so many  prospects in Klondike.  It costs $2 for every dollar's worth  of gold taken out of the ground.  One never hears of the lo.-ers; it is  the winners who do all the shouting.  Fishermen and gold hunters are  capital yarn spinner-, and it is as  easy to multiply the size of a golel find  as it is to add inches to a fish in telling  the story.  A rainbow is grandly beautiful nt a  distance, but it is very damp and thin  when yon get to it.  "Pike's Peak or Bust" painted on  the side of a prairie schooner, made  interesting reading once*, but it was  poor concolation when the bust came.  About one man in a thousand is  fltted to be a pioneer. You are probably one of the nine hundred and ninety-nine who are not.  In going to the races or to Klondike  it is always just as well to get a return ticket when you start.

Chief McClelland,  of the Fire Brigade, washed out  two pansful, in each of which he  got about   a   tablespoonful     of  black    sand     showing     several  colours of gold.   In the opinion of  practical miners it would be worth  while putting a grizzly ou these  bars with a view,   of making a  thorough test.    A go'odjplace to  start in would be at the Weasel  Head    Crossing,    where    Messrs  McClelland, Cook and others have  frequently got colours, and about  35 miles further up the river Mr.  McClelland and others have taken  out the yellow stuff in appreciable  quantities.    When it  is  remembered that the rivers of Montana  have yielded considerable quantities of placer   gold and that the  big  streams to -tbe;. north of us  have been, profitably' worked for  years, there is no reason to doubt  .that  the  Elbow will yet be the  scene of valuable .placer diggings.

P. R. from Montreal  to Assiniboia is not |only interesting but, unlike a good many  stories told by passing ^visitor?,  truthful. Tho writer evidently  thought that the truth about  Canada was all that was needed,  and has written accordingly. It  is gratifying to know that one  old country publication is  cribing Canada as it really is,  des-  The last English papers to hand  give accounts of smaller matters  of the jubilee week. A correspondent of the London Times  writes: Oue amusing incident  of jubilee week I have not seen  mentioned iu the paper3,"though  many people observed it. The day  before the great procession a  costermonger's. cart made a tour  of the decorated streets in the  west end,conveying the owner and  party on a round of sightseeing.  The animal that drew it was  gay with a saddle cloth on which  was conspicuously inscribed, "The  donkey will -praise the Queen at  intervals"���������a promise which was  kept by a loud braying every few-  minutes, to the,, great amusement  of the passersby.  The Conservatives of Western  Assiniboia are said to be incubating a new paper. There is some  talk of buying one ol the Regina  papers, whose proprietors both  turned Liberal in a sudden and  mysterious manner during the  past year. It is worth noting  that they are both in receipt of  Government pap, just as they were  under the old aministration. It  is also worth noting that the  Edmonton Bulletin and Thk  Herald aro about the only North  West newspapers which can get  along without pap���������and it's a poor  paper that can't.  The Most Marvellous Placer Diggings  Ever Discovered���������How to Get Into  the Country���������A Warning to Intending  Gold Seekers���������Starvation  in Winter  The Calgary Herald has the following interesting interview on the new  mining region:  Just before boarding the train at  Revelstoke station the other- day a  Heuald representative was fortunate  enough to meet Serjeant .Engel, one  of the Yukon detachment of North  West Mounted Police who went to the  faraway gold fields two years ago under Capt. Constantine. The Sergeant,  who'is a well informed Englishman,  has been acting as chief clerk for Capt.  Constantine, in which capacity, and  as recorder of ruining claims, lie hael  unusual opportunities of observation.  He left the Clondike district on June  20th and was fortunate enough to  make connections so_ as to complete  the trip inside oE a month.  FABULOUS STORIES.  Sergt. Engel was at one time stationed at Calgary and having heard  little news during his two years' exile  was eager to hear what had been going on. lie tlien gave Tii_~IIer1*.���������t_>  representative a long and extremely  absorbing account of his experiences  in the most remarkable gold country  yet discovered on this planet, and  whose almost miraculous strikes have  set the whole continent in a fever of  excitement. -  "How were the diggings first discovered?" asked The Herald.  " Il was in August of last year that  the first big strike was made," saitl Mr,  Engel, A man named Cormack, locally  known as ' Slwash George.' owing to  his having married an Indian woman,  was working with Indians near Forty  Mile and they told him of a creek out  of which they had long been accustomed to taking out gold. He got  theni to guide him over and the first  pan he washed contained twenty-live  cents. lie jumped. Five cents a pan  is good digging; ten cents  is a I'ortTUNi-:.  " He went on and soon got ij.2 to the  pan, then !"S.2C. He then staked a  claim and made tho two Indians stake  one on each side of him, anil after  taking out a considerable quantity of  dust anel,.nuggets went back to get  supplies, lie told other miners of his  find, hut they only laughed, as Si w:v<=h  tfeorgewas noted for having a golel  excitement once a month. However,  the next time he returned and s-hnwed  his gold the stampede' commenced anti  in a short time Bonanza, creek was)  staked from end to end.  " Before winter set, in as high as SO)  to the pan was being taken out, anel in  one place a bucketful of gravel yielded  $12 PER SHOVEL.  " What >vas the biggest nugget  taken out ? "  " The biggest I saw was worth about  S300, but it was reported that a SIM  nugget was found." |  " What about other discoveries ? "  " Well, Eldorado creek was located  soon afterwards and big finelr, were;  also made on Indian river, Hear creek  and other streams. Bonanza anel H\  Dorado arc tributaries of tlie Clondike;  river, which Hows into the Yukon  river1,' and the diggings are well within  Canadian territory."  *' How rnanv claims are located ? "  '��������� About 700."  "Is it correct that the police boys  brought out $210,000."  " No ; wo all did well, but nothing  like that sum was brought out. Tlieie  were only six of us came back, Insp.  Strickland, Staff Sergt. Hayne, Corp.  Newbrook, Const. H. Jenkins, Const.  Telford and myself. Const. S.W.Jenkins, who went from Macleod. made;  $10,000 without.turning a shovel. He  went over from the post one Sunday,  staked a claim and got back in time  for  duty  on  Monday  morning.   He  then gave half the claim to a working  partner and shortly afterwards sold  out for $-10,000 cash. He is staying tip  there to wind np bis affairs, and will  then, like the rest of us, purchase his  discharge and pull out."  " How is Dr. Wills doing?"  "Ah, yes; Dr. Wills is an old Calgary  man. He owns four or five claims on  the best creeks and will certainly pull  out with a ,big fortune.' One of his  claims has ii, paystreak - 400 feet wide  and ten feet deep."  " What about the stories of groat  fortunes being. made by miners in a  fow months, Sergeant ?"  " Well, some are probably exagger  ated, for tho men who strike it rich  are usually reticent. One man, Alec.  McDonald, had a thousand dollars.and  by buying up, working and dealing in  claims, made ������350,000 in three years,  which is a long time up there. Many  ol lhe men made all tho way -from  SpaO.OOO to half a million in less than a  vear. You see, the returns came all at  b'nee-. In winter, which lasts" from  Scptt-imber 15, Lo May 15, the gravel is  frozen solid and has to be thawed out  Iiy burning." The pay dirt is piled on  the dump untifspring, and.as soon as  water is obtainable the clean-up takes  place and Lhe gold is taken out. Two  of the lucky men who came down with  us on the "Portland were Sloan and  Wilkinson, of Nanaimo, B. C. The  rest are mostly Americans with a few  French Canadians."  "Surveyor Ogilvie, who is now surveying claims, estimates that between  "40,000,001 and S0O,00O,iJO0 will be  taken ' out of the claims already  located.

A  Surprise  for   Her   In  ller  Husband'*  -Laboratory. '.     *  Mrs. Thomas    A. Edison'   is a   -very  beautiful woman.    If one hears  singularly little about her beauty    it is  undoubtedly   because  she  never  seems   to  tbiuk  about it  herself.    It i3 all very  well   theoretically  to   s,ay    that  unconsciousness enhances beauty, end for tbe  discerning it may; but the most of people are more  impressed by the  woman  who carries herself as if she were beautiful (as the French say) than by loveliness that has uo  coquetry, that shows  no deep attention to the toilet,  that 19  genuinely inattentive to its own claims.  Jlrs. Edisou    belongs to  this last type,  "iinel tlius~Blie"haa-a_niiivete-tliat-tlie-olU-  Italiau painters, at any rate,"would have  deeply   appreciated.   She   looks   like   nn  Italian,   for  her coloring is  softly,   not  glttteringly, brunette, with a superb com  piexion, the skin peculiarly fine in texture, and a rich, deep color in her cheeks.  She is, perhaps, the only woman within  a nnndrcd miles of New York that  is  fitted by beauty nnd expression to make  a  pe*rCcct  model  for  a  Madonna.  For.  tliouffk she looks young, ns if she were  in the early twenties, she has the quiet  poise  of  the  wife  nnd  njother.  Sha   is  (riven, in general society, to talking out  little.    She is as  untouched by modern  restlessness as if she were a Greek wo  rutin, and looks as if she could sit still  for an hour any time without nn effort,  nntl nt tho snmo time she shows that she  ir perfectly alive, easily interested, nud.  responsive on the subjects Unit   nppetil  to her; these arc, first. Air. Edison and  her   children;   nnel   next,   children   nnd  their education in generul.    She studiei  the  subject  of  Infant    education  in. n  really  scliolSrly������way.  nnd  .studies  with  great intelligence nnel devotion to iwiko  all  gooel  iele*ns  nntl   discoveries in  that  field serve her little boy and girl.   Tlii'ii  wlthout the nir of condescension in sncli  enses,  she devotes  much time tn rending  detective   novels  with  Mr.   Ellison.  Ye*s,  the detective novel    is a favorite*  diversion with that great brain, nnd the  Mndonna-facod wife of his    bosom     Is  seriously attentive to his needs In this  way,   and  continually  gathers  up  anything she can find that she thinks will  meet the case.    She  rends them  with  him. whether with any other sciitim.'tit  than that of a happy sense of duty Jul;  filled.   It fs  impossible  to  discover.  Ihk  when  it  comes  to  the  KClenUfic  works  that he devours  as  a regular met she  elves up.    Mrs. Edison is not scientitic:  she has ns little affinity for physics ns  other typical women, and that Is saying  a good deal, but a tmc story of a recent  occurrence at the great laboratory w.iiilel  seem to show that one might go further  and sav she has less affinity for physical  science than most women: that loss know-  led ee of it rnhs off on her.    She, with  pride*, was showing some friends abont  the laboratory and trying vnguely to tell  there  things:  they  found   her  more  at  homo   in   cleaning  the  smuts  off     Mr.  Edison's face titan  in  any other pbnse  of laboratory work, bnt still they wpi-o  not prepared for her complete astonishment when a workman enmo along anil  lit a gas jet bv electricity! she had never  heard   of  such   n   thing before.     INow.  is not lhat a delicious story? Any one  ought to re*c*ogni7.e> its voreiry for it is the  Vint" of thins that only real life* has lhe*  happy nudnclty to rnrapoiinii.

"Leslie and Alec ^Douglas, who  have been out prospecting in the new  district between Carnes and Lafnrme  creek, have found that previous reports were not exaggerated and made  some good finds. One ledge of concentrating galena was located 7 feet  wide on the surface. Air. G. T. Atkins,  of the French creek company, is going  up to examine the claims.  Charles Fleming came in this  morning from (he Silver Bow, on Pool  Creek, on which he and XV. Holloway  have been doing assessment work for  W. B. Pool, The claim is showing up  splendidly, and Air. Pool intends to  push on developing it. Air. Fleming,  who sustained an injury in packing  too heavy a load up to the claim, came  in to get medical advice.  With reference to a glowing account  of the Katsup claim on Lexington  creek, which the Herald clipped out  of the Rossland Alinerinour issue of  Wednesday, miners just down from  that vicinity say that up to two days  ago no work had been done on the  claim this year at all, so that the  "solid body of galena, 7 feet wide,  which has been opened," must be  taken with a large dilution of common  salt.

Their  ignorance of (lie real state of things is  due to the press and other interested  people of Seattle, in misleading them,  so as to secure) tho outfitting trade for  that city. It will come to be known  before long that all those going to the  Klondike can more conveniently outfit on this side and save not a little  trouble and expense.  It has been decided that 4 customs  officers with 4 special constables to  assist them shall proceed north on the  Islander today to enforce the customs  regulations and collect duties at the  boundary.
