The Stampede to the Newly Discovered Klondike in the Lardeau.
Out of 24 assays recently made of
ore taken out of the L-ule Bros.' claim
on Gainer Creek the. samples went
.$"200 to $3,200 in go'cl. The same ore
can he found all over two of the* claims^
A ptick train of IS horses is now etn-
ployetl packing out the ore. There is
quilo a stampede to Gainer Cicuk,
which is calleel in tho district "the new
Klondike. .There are several leads or
the same kind of rock, which is a kind of
brown spar with stringers of quartz
running through it, in the Lardoau
countiy, which are now being located.
This rock carries telluiiiini, a mineral
which was not' previously known to
exist in the | Lai'dean country, and
which is a constant concomittant of
gold. This very claim,, which the
Lade Bros, tire working, was staked as
a galena proposition, some years ago
and abandoned as woithless. The
present owners discovered that it was
gold bearing by accident. One of
them broke a piece of.the rock in'two,
when something inside held the two
nieces together. On twisting them
apart tho discovery was made that the
link* was a small piece of gold. The
Oregon the, recently discovered . gold
bearing claim-on'Pool Creek-is the
same as'that on Gainer Creek, and an
assay of it gave $50 to the ton. ���  ���       '

The sanitary regulations, which (he
medical health oilicev litis heeti sent lo
Kootenay to enforce, must commend
themselves to thu common sense ol the
community. The increase of population lenders it impossible tli.it the
country c.111 any longer 'coiiliuui* to
defy the natural laws, which govern
the health of humanity with impunity.
As it is there have boon alri'iuly
epidemics of typhoid fever*withiii tho
last twelve months in l-tossl.inil,
Slocan City anel other points, and it
may be added Unit it is hnpre or less
prevalent _even now in' Kuvolbtoke',
though very little is" lie.iril about it.
If it wns not for the pioteclion lrom
contagion afforded by -the excellent
supply of pure water from absolutely
uncoiitainiuiiled sources ���.there is very
little doubt that a very set ions outbreak of this elisease would have
occurred here before now. The l-egu-
Uitions will involve a certain 'amount
of tioublo and expense, and trouble
and expense are two things of which
most peoplo have, considerable dread.
However this is a case, in which no
one can advance any cogent leasons
for not obeying the*��� regulations and
it is quite*obvious lhat the .'authorities
intend - to" enforce "them. "The most
intelligent course on all. accounts is to
ciri y llu'in'otit"to tho" latter. >

- The recent,case of coriti*sti*d application for water at the' St." Leon hot
springs," has excited n good deal of interest and caused a good ele.nl of comment., There.is a disposition in certain
quarters to represent" Mr. XV, "1.
Brown as " eneleavoring., to get tlfo
better of Mr. Grady and, to conal
everything in sight atVthe springs.
This view of tlie" case is'scdnlously*fos-
tered by ceitain parties with'some 0I1-'
jecl. best known to* themselves. Asa
matter of f.ict,"ami as every reasoii'ible
iii.111 knnwsi the two men tool! up tho
two homesteads as p.irtnew, inteticlin;
"to wmVtlie springs and the*, hotel site
together.** 'Neither- one "is any-use
without "the 'other. ' Nobody would
want to go to the hotel' except, with
the* idea of using the water, and the
water is practically unavailable .without 11 hotel at the.lake shore.-- The injured part j* is^elistiuetly Air. Brown,
who jointly with "Ir.vGrady has
put in c-on_.ider.iblu money and lime
which has been expended oil the pi.ice,
and now finds all the hopes on which
he was building frustrated by the action of the man whom he trusted as
his paitner. There, cannot, be*tiny
question on whose side* the injury lies,
or which of the two parlies to the suit
right thinking man.
.CORRESPONDENCE.    ,   ' ���
-The Lanark Mine.       *   - -
To the Editor cf the IIkralu :
, Di3.\~~ Silt: I see it reported in your
paper that the Home Payne company
have dismissed their men at Laurie
and have, shut down their mill and
workb nt that place, thus throwing out
of employment 13) men. Several "re-
purla have been circulated,as to the*
i-easou for all this. The most serious
one, so fur us the owners of mines in
the IllecMlewaet district areconcerned,
is that the Lanark mine has "petered"
out; others say that the funds "of the
comiiany have: "petered" out, but in
justice to thu owners of mines near
lllecillewaet, I consider it the* duty of
the Home Payne company to tlate exactly what their trouble is, as no reasonable man of business woultl think of
touching mines at Illecillewaet with a
blur cast, upon them, which has been
done Ivy tho shutting clown of the
Home Ptiyne company's works at that
place. Can you give your readers any
iMinitc information as to this, and if
not would not the publication of such
a letter as this compel the company to
give siich;an answer as would not cast
a damper upon all tho mines in that
I enclose you the number of my free
miner's certificate," wliich you are at
liberty to exhibit to any person that
you desire, who .have the right, in
your opinion, to examine same.
Yours truly, .   Prospector.
[The reason assigned for the partial
closing  down   of  the  Lanark  mine
which, "as far as the Herald knows,
is perfectly reliable, is that new methods have been introduced along with a
new superintendent,  which will   ne
cessitate    considerable    development
work, before the mine again  becomes
a shipper.   The concentrator will ac
cordingly be closed, but a force of men
will he kept at work on the mine itself,
engaged in operations which will even
tnally  cause    the employment   of a
larger body of hands than ever.  There
is no likelihood, judging from the report of a Herald representative,, who
was there lately, of the mine "petering
out" at preseut.���Ed.)

Two recent appointments, aru Air. .T.D.
MtGi-egoi-, of-Brandon, to be inspclor
or mines in Yukon anel Mr. F.G.Wiide,
of Winnipeo, to be 'logislrai* of the
s.iiiii! district. Air. McGregor has

piinciples. He made one ot the famous
BiMiidon committee to whom the
.settlement uf the' Manitoba school
question was first submitted and who
cli'i-ided that uniler its terms Clifford
Sitlon might run for the Dominion
parliament and the job of Alinisler of
the Interior. If these things do not
qualify a man to inspect mines in
Yukon, I would simply ask, .what
does? . Air. W.ictc is a Winnipeg law-
yet who wrote a very.clever and bitter
ili'fenee of the Greonway-Mtutin-
Stflon point of view in the Alanitoba
school question. -It is astonishing how
ninny men the Manitoba school qucs-
tiou has conducted to prominence and

The police think'that now he is hung,
the young fellow.'who, committed a

broke jail with Wood, may say something which will throw _ some light on
the motive of the crime. It is thought
lie committed the burglary in "order tei

and that he knows0-, good- deal' about
the crime. Wood, whose real-name

Another Forward Step Taken by' 'the
British Columbia Iron " Works Co*.
Ld.'of this'City. * ,~
From the Vancouver World. -   -    ,
The mining.resources of-this .province arc being . rapidly developed.
New claims 'are/being' located every
day, anei for their'development good
and cheap machinery is required.
The progressive management of tbe
British Columbia' Iron Works Company, limited, of this city,* have leal-
ized the necessity "of expanding their
business, so ns to "meet,] the increased
demand certain to' arise 'for new'and
improved mining'machinery, and'for
that purpose have added a milling
department to their alie.idy extensive
plant, and placed, the same under the
management"of -Mr. J/O: Norbom,":iu
experienced niech.inicaH'iigine'er. who^
for many*years has been engaged' in*
the manufacture "of'all classes of mining machinery in Sau Francisco. .^Alr.
No'rtioiu .is-a.*,, thoroughly educated,
theoretical and practical eng'neer, and
lw�� for the' last >��� 12 yeais devoted his*
special attention* t��i "the-requirements
of th? mini's He has traveled through
till the mining districts,of stiles.-United
Stales of'America, and also those of
the republic of Alexica. Xhis'.yenr he
has given his attention to this province
and the bright outlook for 'the future
in the mining regions throughout the
coast, as well as those in Kootenay
and other: interior districts, has convinced him of the fact that there'is no
country looking more promising at the
present day. Air. .Norbuiu has been
consulting mechanical engineer for
several years for .some of the largest
mining companies in California and
will contiiiue-thc saiiio-hiisiin_*-s,-,hece._
He* has** designed and manufactured
water wheels of a highly effective
type, ille is also well up in sle.nn en-
guicering anel power plants genet.illy,
having designed tin* 1,(100 horse power
triple; expansion engine for the San'
Francisco & San Mateo Electrical railway iu San Francisco." On his two
trips Io British Columbia last soring
Air. Noi-bom placed mining machinery
anil made rnntr.it ts to-the^extent of
some 8(50,000, including the plant of the
Tin Horn mine at Fai'.-view. all of
which came, from San Francisco.
Willi their present plant and the making of a few alterations and additions
the British' Columbia Iron Works
Company can niiinufaeluro all of ~~ this
class of machinery. This will mean
that a great deal of money lhat now
goes to a foieign country and elsewhere, will be kept in this province.
The miner will not only get as good
an 111 tick* anel for less money, but will
nol labor under the disadvantage of
having to send so far for repairs and
supplies. It will stimulate the manufacturing industry of Vanco'tiver, and
give employment to many moie
mechanics. Progressive people like
the managers of the British Columbia
Iron Works Company are what our
Piovince should be piouel of.. With
every one desiring*-"" sr-c our city continue in its prosperity. The World
wishes them evei y success in their
endeavor to develop the latest resources of eiur young, but rich and
promising county.

If Yankee be substituted tor Chinee, and the word  heathen eliminated for the sake of  decency, the saying will have as  much truth if less poetry in it,  judging from the devious turns  and twists that our tricky cousin-  have resorted to, since tho  Clondike rush started, to capture  and hold, by any means, fair or  foul, the outfitting and supplying  trade which the great movement  of gold seekers to the Yukon has  created.     _  Our enterprising.cousins started  out by booming the. Clondike discoveries for all they were worth,  endeavoring at the same time  insidiously to convey the untrue  ��������� impression that the rich placers  were in the American territory of  Alaska. The trade was progressing swimmingly on these lines,  when the announcement was made  public that the Canadian authorities were arranging to collect  duties on outfits and supplies  taken into the Yukon from  American points. This produced a  howl of dismay and abuse from  the American coast press, with  threats that the enforcement of  the duties would be evaded, and  forcibly resisted, if necessary.  Finding that misrepresentation  and "bluff" of this sort wouldn't  ���������work,-our���������neighbours���������suddenly-  changed their tactics, and industriously concocted and circulated  yarns to the effect that goods  could be purchased so much  cheaper aud of a superior class on  the American side that it would  pay gold hunters to get their outfits and supplies there, and pay  the Canadian duty, rather than to  get outfits, etc., dutyfree, in  British Columbia. This argument,  of course, completely stultified the  great wail and howl that they had  just been making about the imposition ot the Canadian duties; but  the maintaining of a decent appearance of consistency was, of  course, nothing here nor there���������  the object being to capture the  trade, at ali costs.  The recent announcement that  the Dominion Government had  decided, for this season, to exempt  a certain portion of a. miner's out-  lit and supplies, coming from a  foreieu country, from duty, gave  .our vivacious and versatile cousins  another chance to exercise their  ingenuity of which they have not  been slow to avail themselves. A  Seattle paper, the Times, immediately published, under great  scare heads, a terriblyexaggerated  version of the concession, conveying the impression that the duties  had been practically and indefinitely suspended. In the same  line thePost-Intelligenccr's correspondent for the Clondike, who is  going in with the crowds by way  of Dyea and the passes, inEorm*  his paper���������that is tha way it is  printed, at any rate���������that duty is  not exacted by the Canadian customs officers on "ordinary and  necessary supplies consisting of  plain common food and clothing  weighing 1,000 pounds or less."  The object here, again, of course,  is to cause it to be believed that  outfits and supplies can be bought  jn Seattle   and other   American  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson  towns, and taken into the Yukon  practically, free   of  duty.       The  truth of the matter, however, is  very different from the American  misrepresentation.*   The   instructions  to   the   Canadian   customs  officers who were sent north from  Victoria,  says  the Colonist, ���������Jwere  to permit miners' clothing in use  and  broken     packages    to   pass  duty free,    the idea    being,   ou  humane grounds that, if all a man  had with hlni was what he needed  to keep himself warm and   from  going hungry on his journey, he  ought  not to  be obliged   to  pay  duty [on it.    The special instructions sent by tho Commissioner of  Customs at Ottawa, under dato ol!  Aug. 13,  for the guidance of customs olficei'S at Lake Tagish, were,  "that miners' blankets,   personal  clothing in use, and one hundred  pounds of food for the journey are  exempt this season, charging duty  only ou excess."  There is a good deal of difference  between one. hundred pounds and  one thousand pounds, as stated by  the Post-Intelligencer. Thus is'a  temporary.'concession made by the  Dominion Government, on humane grounds, distorted and perverted, i'or their own profit, by  the-greetly-tricksters-of-Seattle.���������  New Westminster Columbian.

ANARCHIST  REVENGE  THE EXECUTION  OF   CANOVAS  ASSASSIN  Will Be Revenged���������The Queen Regent  of Spain to Be Assassinated by the  Anarchists���������She Is Guarded by a  Squad of Detectives.  - London, Autriist 27.���������A despatch to  the Daily_ Mail from San Sebastian  says that the Spanish Government has  learned that.at a secret anarchist meeting in London,it was resolved to avenge  the execution of Agiolillo, the assassin  of Canovas, by an attempt upon the  life of the Queen regent. Twenty of  the ablest Barcelona detectives are reported to have been detailed to protect  the Queen.   -  New York Tribune: Much comment has been 'made upon the  corporate and government taxes  upon the Clondike gold industry.  Transportation companies are  charging high rates for carrying  in supplies, and the Canadian  government has been considering  the propriety of charging a heavy  royalty upon the] product of the  mines, though it is now reported  that it will probably not impose  lit. These charges are in some  quarters denounced as extor-  tionace. Perhaps they are,  perhaps not. * It is of interest to  observe, however, that they are  most denounced by those who  have most superciliously sneered  at the grievances of tlie gold  diggers in the Transvaal, when, as  a matter of fact, the "extortions"  of the Clondike, compared with  those of Johannesburg, "are an  moonlight unto sunlight, and as  water unto wine."  In judging of the Indian  situation we should bear in mind  that there is probably no connection, except that of coincidence  in time, between the rising of the  tribes under a religious leader in  the Northern hill country and the  display of dissatisfaction at  Poonah and Calcutta. The rising  of the tribc3 is sure to be put down  by superior forces, directed by  military science and armed with  improved weapons, though the  process may be expensive, and, if  the Ameer is behind the rising,  certainly will. The disaffection is  chronic, and has its root in the estrangement of feeling arising from  a radical alienation of races. As  usual, when there is aDy disturbance in India, Russian intriguejs  said to be at work.   The Russian  "Not a dollar of Canadinu money  should be spent in building  telegraph lines or in making roads  whicli the United States will hitve  power to close against us. No  advantages from the standpoint of  economy ought to commend the  telegraph Hue or road through  American or disputed territory to  the favour of the ��������� Canadian government. Whatever is done on  the Yukon ought to be done  primarily for tha benefit of  "Ca^all^^n"d"frt'ie"Yuk"dif"p"'ove-s"  .is rich, as it is said to be, the only  way Canada can benefit is by the  construction of an all Canadian  road and telegraph line to the  Clondike region."���������Toronto Evening Telegram.

Mining has been carried on there in a  slow way for years, but discoveries  made this summer leave* no room to  doubt that an immense amount of  gold will be taken out of tint river and  its tributaries during the next two  years. Men who arc now taking out  gold in large quantities there aie not  trying to create a boom, but are  quietly sending for their friends to  come into the country and secure  claims.  A. D. Kitchen, a mining broker ot  this city, has returned from British  Columbia. At Vancouver he met a  young man named Johnson who had  just come down from Peace river with  his partner, bringing "lS.OOO. A third  partner was lelt at the mines. The  two came out with pait of the season's  output to secure supplies _ for ���������the  winter. The money brought out was  placed in a Vancouver bank. Part of  it was drawn out for the purchase of  supplies, wliich weie at once shipped  to -Edmonton, Alberta, where they  wete to be sent to the mines by a  large pack train,  Tbe S1S,000 brought out had been  cleaned up by the three men in three  months. They went to Peace River  early in the spring, and Johnson  started.-.out in July. Johnson said  that all the miners on Peace river  were making a great deal of money  with the rudest appliances. Up to  tlie time he leit only nans and 12 foot  sluices had been usecl. Most of the  miners were not coming out this fall  because it was possible to purchase  siiDplies at the trading posts of the  Hudson's Bay Co., near the mouth of  the river. Johnson told Mr. Kitchen  that if he wauled gold all that he had  to do was to go to Peace river.  The Peace river country is re.ichpd  most easily from Edmonton, which.is  833 miles from Vancouver and about  the same distance from.Winnipeg, being 191 miles north of Calgary on the  Canadian Pacific railroad. Fort Chip-  pewyan, on** Athabasca lake, at the  mouth of, Peace river, is reached by  taking ii stage from Edmonton to  Athabasca Landing, ninety"miles, and  thence down Athabasca riycr and lake  by boat. Chippewyan * is 403 miles  froii' Edmonton. Steam boat" go up  the Peace river for a considerable distance. A number of its tributaries, including lhe Loon and Deer rivers, are  its rich as the main stream.  The Peace i ivcr rises in the eastern  6lopes of the Rocky mountains, a little  north of the centre of British' Columbia, in the northern ttontinuation of  the same mountains rise the Clondike,  Pelly, Stewart and other gold hearing  fcributaiies of tbe Yukon. -There is  this dilVerr-ncc, the Peace river rises  on tho eastern slope of the mountains  while tho Yukon's tributaries rise on  the west side. * Along Peace river on  Hip north are the Reindeer or Caribou  mountains, wliich have been found  this summer io be rich m gold bearing  quartz. "  ,    *  - Mr. Kitchen found fchat other'miners  had recently* arrived -it Vancouver,  bringing J.ii'ge amounts of gold from  Peace l iver. He is accordingly  iii-runc.:i>- ,to organize a company  which will put steamers on the Athabasca livi" .ind Jake, and on Peace  river next o._i ing. and establish at least  three trading posts. lie will go to  Lincoln, Neb., where -he" formerly  Jived, to get part of the necessary  Cfipitul. ks  THE INDIAN REVOLT  THE   GOVERNMENT    FACE  r     FACE WITH TROUBLE  TO  The Situation is Getting Worse���������Tribes  in   Revolt   All   Along   the, North-  *~     .Western Frontier���������Grave  Crisis  to  be: Met  ������ : "  Bombav, August 23.���������The ' latest  dispatches from tho fiont indicate  ,tliat the situation is getting woise.

International Politics���������The Relations of  France, Germany and Russia.���������The  Commercial Treaties���������Prince Henry  of Orleans  Paris, August 11, 1S97.  The cartoon journals devolo a good  deal of attention to the Kaiser's trip  to St. Petersburg. One sketch represents the Czar before the map of  Eiuope, seriously chawing the attention of Emperor William to the map,  finger" resting-on~thb~���������spbtf-inark~eil  Alsace, and adding: "There lies the  difficulty ot tho situation, and not the  Sultan." The Kaiser was m his clement, he delivered some speeches, tho  old stylo, with something like a proposal ot Germany to join Russia and  France, to combat the common Erb-  fiend, the disturber of universal peace,  the denunciator' of commercial treaties, and the owner ot the picked  colonies of-the world���������lhe British  Empire. The Ftencb grin at this clay  dream-timeo Danaos et dona feientes-  uud propose as an atiienduient to commence by giving back Als-ice and the  five .niilliaids ot hard money. They  would require the proof that Germany  has no secret understanding with  Encrland all the same, and that, if the  French felt inclined for a speculative  war, it would be more to their advantage to try it ou at the expense of  Germany than of the Biitish Empire  The Canovas tiageely has led to  increased activity on the part ot the  international police. No foreign anarchists arc now in France; they have  anticipated expulsion. The bodyguard  of President Faure has been doubled:  that is common prudence. It is a hard  time for t]iiiet lookiug men,weariiig  coloured glasses, and apparently occupied doing nolluntj. Such was the  make-up of Golli, the murderer of  Senor U-nov.-~.-_The belief is taking  loot that Golli was toed-Git by the  executive of the militant anarchists to  remove the Spanishpremier. His hint  that the turn for other exalted personages is coming-rrwhether* bounce or  bluff���������is unpleasant,a'pd begets c~eepir  ness in public opinion. , .  By the time M. F.mre arrives at  Cronstadt all souvenirs of the Kaiser's  visit will have disappeared. He will  certainly receive n wonderful welcome.  After the , manilestation it will be  difficult to attest that the Muscovites  and French do not desire to be one,  whether the union of hearts be or bo  not, backed up by parchment deeds.  The contrast between the German and  the French welcome will be gall and  wormwood for the Kaiser. Nothing is  more irritating than receiving love  overtures with coldness and indifference. It is ctilcul "ted that 1,6a Parisians have taken tourist tickets to St.  Pcterslmi g and Moscow. The I- renoh  colonv in tbe former citv is relatively  large," ar.d the moiety of its population  is contained of milliners and dressmakers. A few French, linns commence to Iiiul agencies in the chief  Russian cities. The economic trend of  Russia is to augment her experts by  living at peace with all the world and  to supply her industrial wants bv her  own artizans.    That appears to be the  new trading gospel with all people  since one-sided free trade is no longer  in the odour of sanctity, and prohibitive protection tends to stiMngle the  prohibitionists.     '  The "broach commence to see a little  more clearly into the meaning of tho  denunciation by England of the German-Belgian treiity of commerce, and  the loss ft will inflict on Teutonic exports. She is never displeased at the  misfortunes of fiiends. The entrance  of French outputs into othe United  Kingdom w ill not be more ait'peted a  year hence, than it is to-day. Only  France must try. ane^iipatiUicecheaperj^  with"oht~lesTemii^g~lh"e"quality of,, her  produc Sie wi 11 have a better  chance too in the English colonics,  where the local duties will be so increased that the German flimsy types  of articles will not hi able to support  the customs housesqueezingsand thus  alt'ord" a chance for the higher  class articles turned out by  France. The largest empires for the  future will alone be able to have suitable, markets, bub as the. in-and-in  system of patriotic trading.will prevail, foreigners will not have many  chances to enjoy the sunshine.  The French are in a brown study  respecting the capture of Abu Hamid  by the Anglo-Egyptian army���������a short  atfair, but executed in the old style.  The puzzle is to know if the English  intend to clear out the Mahdi lirst or  secure a well defined boundary line for  upper Egypt, and the demands of  Menelik. According to Piince Henri  d' Oilcan.-, who is setting himself up  as tbe foreign minister unattached of  the Abyssinian monarch, the Anglo-  Egyptian advance will be resisted.  But as all the predictions of the prince  have ever turned out erroneous, not  much importance is attached to his  divinations. People do not exactly  know what the young man is aiming  at; some say he wants to cut out his  cousin, the Due d'Orleans in the pre-  tendership���������a matter neither difficult  nor important.

There is a legend that Loin's XVII  did not die in the Temple prison after  the execution of his parents, that he  escaped to Holland aud ,made clocks,  took the name of N.tundoiff," and died  at the ripe ago of three score and ten  leaving a family who claim to be the  'Iright divine" claimants to the "light  divine" throne of France. The claim  was often tested in the law'coui-ls, but  was not established; it conveyed however the impression, that Sir Roger de  Coverley pxpoiienced after listening to  a famous trial, that a-_gr_ea,t-_deal_was  to be said on both sides.

The Piovince map of the Yukon dis-  _tricc._is_a_iiseftil_additi.oii to the  means  of iiifoimation available about that  country. It. is boldly and cleaily  delineated in coloisand mounted on  cloth. The map shews the boundaries  as claimed by the United States and  Great Britain, a very lemarkable di-  veige-nce of opinion on the -suliject being noticeable from Mount St. Elias  south.  A curious, though not exactly novel  experiment in r.iilioad construction is  going on at Mountain creek, east of  Bear Creek .-t.-ition. A long piece of  ties tie work eiccurs here, which is now  being filled up by hyelr.iulicking gravel  down a Hume which runs ont at tbe  bottom of the bridge. Immense masses of diit and rock come thundering  clown the flume with a tremendous  noise, washed out by the persistent  stream of the monitor, which ono man  directs and controls as easily as a garden hose. The plan has been trieel on  the line on the Fiasor river before.  As it was thought the electric light  poles were encroaching ou the space  which should be reserved for a .sidewalk at the west end of Fiont street,  the Heuai.d interviewed Mr. Cowan  on the subject, who state-; that he has  had a survey made and that there is  ample room feu* an c-ight-footsiclewalk.  If the company's survey is wrong, in  the event of a sidewalk being built at  any time, they will simply have to  move the poles.  Col.
