(_^W. A Griffiths'& Co.,  '    ' lll'VGOISTS,   KEVELSTOKE.  A Sketch   of  the   Mining  Situation   in  this Rich Mineral Section.  Carnes creek runs into the Columbia  ~~-miles from Revelstoke cm  the  Big  Bend   trail.     Tho   formation   of   the  country   is   made   up  of  a   granular  limestone" through which   a   series   eif  igneous   rocks   run,    traversing    the  limestone for miles-in   a   nearly ���������parallel cnursu. wit ha north west, and'south-  c-ast, trend.    It  is   in   these   veins   or  dykes that the precious iimliil is found.  Carnes creek is a, distinctly gold camp,  the gold being found in sulphides  and  aisenides, and not in a free slate.   The  chief development  on  tho  creek   lias  been done hy   the  Cnrnes Creek Ccm-  solidaled   Gold   Mines Lid.,  a  Kevelstoke company, who own teven claims  on the north  fork  of  ihe  cieek.   On  tin; Roseberry claim   ihey   have  done lerable wo.ik, having run  a   tunnel on the lead for OS feel, wilh a cross  cut each way of 30 feel at Llie end  and  08 feet of 11 lower   tunnel   lo   cut   the  lead.      When   found,   they   will   run  along it again to strike the end of ��������� the  first' tunnel.   ' -The__ ore   increases ..iii  value as the,vein is driven upon, going  from $20 on t.he surface* tn froin $0'J lo  $150.    The richest, ore  is  found   in   a  streak, 22 inches'widi*, of  nearly  solid  iron  .   and    inispii-kel   in   the  centre of the* vein, which is 9 feet wide  in the-face' of  the  upper tunnel,  consisting of quartz, fulfill1,   iron   pyrites  and inispickel:    The  company  intend  to start work again early in April  and  will spend abeiut.$10.00l) next season in  opening np their ore body.    Adjoining  tht*   Roseberry   arc*   two   claims   the  Aberdeen belonging   to   some   Revelstoke people, and  the  Hard  P.m.  the  property of 11 Seattle company  and  a  line of claims have been  located  from  the head of the fork over lo  Key si cine  Mountain in a noith west .direction, on  some of wbiili a good  deal  "of   assessment work has  been  dune. .On.. I lie  south fork some very promising prospects were'dis'royered last "summer by  tee Gebrgr",'*a"Rossl.'intl prospector and  bis partners.' The li'dge; is arsenical  ���������iron shewing three feet of-solid ore*.  It was traced for 1,20!) feet and assays  were obtained froin the ore of as high  as $20 in golel. This-party located  four cl-iinis, the J. to Ij., Annie M.,  Florence and Jubilee. Further down  towards the Liifornie creek elivide,  two very promising claims the Yukon  and Klondike were located by -W: JI.  Bean last year. The couutry rock here,  is slate'.-U'.d the ledge is reported to be  traceable for miles. Development-cm  the Klondike, showed the.'lead widening out and large; cfiuuks'of solid iron  ore-'weie -encour.tereil���������in��������� the���������lead,  weighing from two to" three hundred  pounds. There aiti indications of a  still larger ore; body on another ledge  above tbe one opened up. The indications are all in favor of an active and  prosperous gold camp on Carnes creek  in the near futuie. o  NOTE AND COMMENT  The. Oilicial Ciiiide to the Klondike,  prepared by "'. Ogilvie and published  by the Hunter Rose Co. Ldl, by authority of '.he Department of lhe Interior  is out and enjoying an circulation. The bunk is well got up with  a number of maps and illustrations  and of course contains the; most authoritative information obtainable on the  subject of the great Klondike. Once  or twicH however iu the* midst of OiJjil-  vie*'s uncompromising statements, Uie  "Hue Italian hand" of some master  mind, perhaps one is pleased to think  of Ijiin. Clill'ord Sifton. is discernible,  adding Unit toucli of political nature,  which makes the whole; world in America kin, and adds life and color to  dry details nnd dull statistics.  I'or instance in the description of the  Stikine   route,   theie   is   no hint thai,  the usual course to pursue is to   traus-  ihip from the ocean lo  river  steamers  al Wrangel   that Wrangel is in America 11 territory and that herein   lies  the  hitch in Lhis roael  as  an   All-Canadian  route..   Not at  all.   The   Department  of the Interior is  as blandly   ignorant  of  all   this  as  was iho.Depai'Linent of  Railways, until  Air..Foster's  remorseless  logic  broke  down   the "glittering  illusion.    "First we will glance at  the  proposed Stikine   mule,? says the official guide.    ������������������From* Victoria,   to   Fort.

Johnson, Dillon and Lind*  gren have icturnecl to Trout Lake  City from Canyon cieek, where they  have heen winking since the middle of  last Oct slier, .-ays the Topic. Their  properties are situated at the head of  the north fork of the creek and arc described hy them as follows:  Two groups, lhe Columbia, and tbe  Lot ten, comprise a total of ten claims.  On these properties the ore averages  171 ounces of silver and 75 per cent,  lead. Considerable work has been  done on the Lotten, and consists of an  ini'lino shaft sunk lo a depth of S2  feet. The results "were, highly satisfactory and some very- fine samples of  ore tout.lining galena, iron and yellow  copper were obtained. A "cross cut  will be driven from the bottom of the  shaft and the width and richness of  the vein determined. Owing to the  vein h-iving straightened up it was  left at a considerable .distance from  the boLtom of the shaft and it is expected when the cross cut is completed'  Hint a chute of fine ore will be en-  cou nt creel.  Ou the Columbia an incline shaft has  been sunk to a depth of :~*0 feet and  shows cp very well. The vein .is about  six feet wide in a ledge of 25 feet, and  carries a liigh grade of galena ore.  It is the intention of the owners to  continue .woi king these ��������� claims, and  hope shortly to have a showing of ore  sufficient lo place tlieui on the shipping list.  Not very far from these claims are  situated the Pedro, Black Jack and  Grand Hcilo. The' ledge is a very "well  defined one*, exposed in places on the  surface, gives -a width of from 10 to  20 inches of ore plentifully mixed  with gray 'copper which .assays 1G~  ounces of silver to the ton. It is proposed to commence work on these properties just ns soon as the snow is off  the ground, - "������������������ '.'-. ,'"'--"_"  THE CP. R.

SATURDAY.  FEBRUARY 10.  1898.  A BIG GUN  la-view of the appointment of  the Marquis of Lome as honorary  Colonel of the Argyle Light Infantry ������t Belleville, Ontario, and as  it reminds us that, despite our  traditional peaceful policy, we  might'at some time be drawn, into armed conflict with our neighbors, wo venture to make a few  observations regarding the  ���������strength'of Uncle Sam. The Un-  nited States, as is well known,  ranks tilth among the naval powers of the world in the matter of  warship.9. Great Britain, France,  Russia and Italy, in tho order  named,;take precedence, nnd Ger-  nany's strength is so near that of  the States that they maybe said  to be about evenly matched. Lt  must be "kept in mind, however,  that the apparent difference between the naval strength of 'the  States and that say of England is  offset-to iaV great extent^ by their  geographical position. yL> nele Sam  . in case of war would be a formidable opponent formations having  a naval and military equipment.  So long as his people keep * together, "he*cbuld' never; be sub] n gated.  The territory to be seized is too  extensive/ too welI populated, aud  the opposition which would be  developed in the course of a very  few months too strong. The position in bur own case, therefore,"  is as to the extent of the damage  which England and Canada combined could inflict before the conflict wore itself out and peace negotiations were begun. The British .would labor under a disadvaut-  agein that they must traverse many  miles of sea before making an attack upon either coast._ The Can-  "adiaiTtfooplThoweverrniight run"  amuck, sweep everything before  them, seize Washington, aud con-  c-iier the United States, providing  of course the Argyle Light Infantry of Belleville, Ontario, led the  van with the desperate swashbuckler, the Marquis of Lorne  leading them on to victory..--Free  Lance, Wetaskiwin.  Mr. McMullen. M. P.. has lefused  to accept the office of .Lieutenant  Governor of the Territbrie-j and  consequently deprived those who  know" him of a vast amount.of  amusement at his exoense. What  fun' it would be to watch McMullen, who kept track of every  cake of soap which passed through  the laundry at government house  in the good old days when Mac  was in opposition, attempting to  practice what he preached by  taking up his abode with his  family in the kitchen to save fuel,  and saving the3 table linen by  locking it up. Biit itis not to be.  Though we might have had lots of  fun with him while he lasted.  HE CAUGHT 'EM  A rather good story is told on a resident of West Macleod. It seems  that some days ago, he tied his team  outside the general hospital to go in  and see a patient. It was towards  evening and getting dark. After he  had been there some little lime, he  was startled by hearing a wagon clattering off and "a team running. The  nearest way was hy the back door,  and he went out through there at a  lope. Without looking to the right or  to the.left he started after the runaway team, which he couldhear ahead  of him going in the direction of West.  Macleod. about three' miles- distant.  He continued the pursuit until he  reached home foot 60re and weary.  There was no team in sight. Then he  turned out with lanterns, an 1 looked  through the brush, but still no team.  He traced his way back, looking carefully through the brush as he came,  but without succesB. When he reached the hospital he found his team  ���������tending quietly where he had left  them. Further comment is unnecessary, and we drop the curtain to slow  music and and a faint.echo of profanity.���������Macleod Gazette.  My lady, with an old-time grace,  Sends me a valentine to-day,  A miniature of her dear fare  With eyes so true and wondrous gay  Ah, lady mine, the world grows old,  And nien's hearts steel with care and  :���������... strife,  And in the race for fame and gold  There's little time for love or life.

CONDENSED NEWS  A lire in New York yesterday  destroyed $"00,000 worth of property,  The Guatemalan revolutionist  Gcheral.*Marro/jwin, has been killed  and his army scattered,  Sandon has had a number ol business failures this week, Pitts Bros.,  and Crawford to McMillan being  among the number.  Those who had the Kootenay fever  have apparently got the; Klondyke  fever now, SO people having left  Sandon for the Yukon lust week.  Sir Charles Tupper has veered completely round and is now fighting tho  Stickine railway bill with tooth and  nnil. It will also bo strongly opposed  in the Senate.  The winners of the Derby for the  last four year-, Mr. Guhbins, tho  Prince of Wale;', Lord Rosebery, and  Mr. McCahnont, all have horses in  training for jumping races this season.  The Government have now about .19  tons of supplies at Dyea and Skagway  and have contracted for the taking of  li" tons over Chilcoot pass by the new  aerial railway, with an option of 13  tons more at ]5e. a pound.  Every dollar of gold in the world  has cost over $2.00, and of everv 50,000  gold mines in tlie world, only two  have paid. These are statistics which  ought to - stacger even a person  who is getting ready to go to the  Yukon.  M. D Rucker, the bicvele manufacturer who broke into English racing  with a great flourish of trumpets, and  gave the Prince of Wales 5,000 guineas for a colt wrrth the hundredth  part of tbat sum, hns given up the  game aheady and sold his horses.  The value of mineral exports from  Southern Kootenay through the port  of Nelson to date amounts to *1,-129,-  202, an increase of almost 100 percent  over the corresponding period of 1S97.  Great interest is being taken at piesent by mining men in properties on  Forty-Nine and Hall Creeks in Nelson  district.  ... lt is stated on good authority  that the quarrel between th-j Grand  Trunk and Canadian Pacific, wliich  originated over tho Toronto to North  Bay business is practically settled by  the virtual back down of the Grand  Trunk, which has issued a circular  cancelling the low rales announced  into Winnipeg. This occurred just as  the Canadian Pacific had mot these  rates over the Great Northern.  Inspector of Mines -McGregor, who  started for Dawson some weeks ago  with several tons ot supplies and a  number of horses has abandoned the  trip. McGregor got as far. as Lake  Labarge, where he received orders  from Major Walsh. Administrator or  the Yukon district, who is camped at  Big Salmon River, to abandon the  trip because of tho impossibility of  reaching Dawson with horses. McGregor has gone to Big Salmon to confer with Major Walsh.  About two years ago Alex. Kegg,  formerly of Duuhow, Alberta, now of  Victoria, who styled himself Crofter's  "Commissioner,���������to- distinguish "his"  personality- from that of the late  editor of the Mining Record, secured a  charter for a railway into the Te-ltti  Lake country. This chartei controlled  the proposed" route of the C. P. R. into  the Klondyke, and to secure it Dan  Mann, who is to build the connecting  link of railway from Telegraph Creek,  has paid over to Begg a cool ."50,000  A London cable says: It came out  at the winding up proceedings in con  neeMon with Mr. James Huddart.'s  Canadian Australian Steamship Co  that large borrowings are needed immediately to continue the business  As it is, the total liabilities which are  expected to rank amount to ������08,000,  while the free assets are estimated at  ������10,000. This state of affairs will  probably result in a complete remodel  ling of the service on the highest  standard of speed and efficiency. The  Canadian Pacific has built up such a  reputation in England with the main  line and China anil Japan service that  it cannot allow the Austtalian line to  remain below par.  A party of Klondykers from London  passed through Windsor and Detroit,  recently en route to Seattle. Near  Glencce lire destroyed tho special  baggage car of the party. It originated in one of the trunks, ami got it  good -start before Glencoe was  reached. At that station the burning  car was cut out of the train and side  tracked, but before the flames could  be extinguished, only two of the  heavy sleeping bags for usein the cold  country remained of the iiutfits of the  company. The destroyed baggage  was valued at several thousand  dollars, and the owners expect to hold  the road responsible for the loss. A  short stop was made in Detroit and  and the prospectors left on their way  to Seattle.  They have a law in Washington, D.  C*. declaring that no cycle shall be  ridden in the streets with the lower  end of the handle liars on a plane  lower than four inches below the top  of the saddle at its centre, and the  rider shall at all times keep his head  in such a position as to command a  view of not less than 200 feet ahead."  Furthermore the courts have just held  it valid and it is to be rigorously  enforced from all accounts. It is  needless to point out against what  class of animals the law is directed.  St. Paul has been infested with comparatively few���������:���������; "scorchers," since the  campaign conducted against them last  spring, and it is probable that tho  present ordinance regulating speed is  sufficient,   if   properly    enforced,  to  check the mania, but tho addition of  the above clause would remove numerous blots from the summer landscape and bo a higenic measure of no  little value to those who persist in  riding on their stomachs.���������Pioneer  Press.

A branch of the Molson's bank is  being opened in Vancouver,  under the management of II.

The Winnipeg Tribune says: "Mr.  Foulds, whose sisler is the wife of  Chief Factor FortSinipson'f  has received a letter which states that  while seveial of the boys were excavating for the foundation of the cabin on  tht* Liard river, where it; empties into  the Mackenzie, near Fort Simpson,  they came upon rich dennsits of placer  golel, the nuggets being the si/.n of  barley." This find indicates that tho  plat er deposits are not; confined to tlio  western slope of the Rocky Mountains,  but that they exist on the eastern slope  as well, which is most reasonable and  what might be expected."

Tliere was a  "���������   reason   for  this  that does not appear   upon  the  surface.     Our  grandmothers  were hciillliv wo-  iiicii.-iinbucci with  a spirit of ambition and activity  that would not  permit them to  be idle.  If ninny modern  women arc much  less active and more given lo idleness than  the stately dames of yore, it is because thoy  enjoy a smaller measure of Rood health.  A woman who suffers from weakness and  disease of the distinctly feminine organs,  who is racked with pain, mid tortured with  headaches aud nervousness, cannot be active anil helpful. Idleness and invalidism  arc lhe natural results of suficriiiK of this  description. The poor invalid woman is  ueit in fault, save in her ignorance of her  null physical make-up or neprlcct of her  wiiuianlv health.  Thousands of women arc neglectful in,  this way because tliey shrink from the em-  barrassinjj examinations and local treatment insisted upon by the majority of  obscure physicians. l~r. R. V.

F. Goelen-  ralb. an olel C'algarian. Tbe paper  gives a very able resume of the mining  news of Kootenay and its stock epio-  tations are correct' and up to date,  making it a valuable journal for the  ''eastern stock buyer.  The Herald has received a letter  from James Reighly at Spirit River, a  tributary of the Peace, which joins  that river not far above Dunvegati on  the south "ido. He says he* is in a  Fplendid place to winter, as there is a  stock ranch .near, where'he" can get  lmth beef and hay at. reasonable rates.  The parties that are wintering at St.  John's are reported to he losing a"mini-  Tier of their horses. He' 'intends to go  tip the Peace on tbe ice about the first  of March and wait there till the grass  .���������will., do to travel on. His ponief are  fat and he expects to bead; tbe Klondike procession from St. John's with  them.  The gold commissioner has received  word from the Minister of Mines that  claims cannot be lumped together in  J-ndviertising notices of application for  certificate of improvement, but each  claim must be advertised separately  troth In the Gazette and one local  paper.

Lake Fraction, Bear  Fraction and Gold Hill Fraction,tinder  . which they were all lumped together  ���������as one both in the Gazette and the  Mail, represents Just so much useless  expenditure in the interests of economy and a fresh advertiseinent will  .'have to:beinserted for each separate  one of the eight claims, before a certificate "will be granted.

["Vrlllun ior lhe Hkiiai.d by l'ui'l; Levis]  Afler supper the other fellows went  eilT to the tent, nnd Tom anil I sat down  lo a good cliat. over our pi|ies. His  half lirei'd wife wns going about her  household duties in the half sulky,  half dellant iiiaiiucr of ber <rkiiitl, when  othi'i* while men como about,  their while husbands. She bud  been a pretty girl, with the wild,  evanescent, beauty of lhe half breed  race, in the days when Tom married  her. Rut. a few years of wedded life  itni'-rhililbi'.'triiig had turned ber into a  hiirdfe'at.ui't.d middle aged woman before she was out of ber "twenties." I  never saw it any other way with theni.  Tom bad three or four small children  in all stiiges.'but bis favorite was evidently the eldest, a very pretty child  of about six, with the soft creamy  complexion and high niched eyehrciws  peculiar to tho offspring of a second  infusion of the white 'blood. lie took  ber on his lap, and while, the. little one.  half scared and half curious; gazed 'at  my brass buttons and gold 1,-icc, Tom  began to unburden himself of bis  troubles.  " I tell"yon what is," he began began between the pull's of his pipe, " I  ain devilish glad you rami1 up here. 1  am having a bit of-tremble with my  Indians (ind you can fix it up for nie.'"  "What i.s the..matter," I said, expecting to hear the usual yarn about,  killing government cattle or refusing  to hoe their potatoe patches... or some  other e.eTence against the peace and  dignity of the Indian Department of  lhat sort. "If they have been killing  iv government cow I don't want to be  bothered with it. The* last time I was  up here, I arrested a nitchie called  Moosewa for that job at- the old agency  and at Old Mac's own request. I  brought him up before the olel man  and what, do you think the beggar did.  He pitched olel Mac a yarn about,  killing the cow in orcler to have meat  to give some of the* Cardinal outfit,  who were visiting him. He saiel he  .was a Methodist and tliey weie all  Catholics and he wanted lo convert  theni. Well you know old Mac is  playing the Methodist racket pretty  heavy just now since he took the  pledge after that last spree he* bad on  tlie medical comforts anel tbe row  about it, and I'm blowed if be didn't  go and let tbe nitchie off and I had all  my trouble for nothing. Vou'll have*  to get another agent before I'll be  bothered with your cows."  "No," said Jim, "it ain't c*ows, hut  the missionaries are into it, all right  enough. It's this way, though T don't  know whether you'll believe* me when  1 tell you. Two of my best bucks  have gone Off the reserve* '.'ind'.,.they  have taken two other Indian's squaws  with thiini. The husbands swear.they  will shoot them on sight, if they  catch them. But the olel men say  that old Mrs. Bobtail, the* widow: of  the old chief, has put her medicine on  them andtlial. ihey are not really responsible for what they are doing.  The '"lwo liiit-ks were always gooel  enough before, and so were the  'squaws; and I don't understand it myself. Now, if you will ste>p over tomorrow, we will have a pow-wow and  perhaps vve will see if anything is to  he done. I tei I- you" BI~l~~"~Ha~ ~~r~"i t.*S".rr  serious   business'1 for   nie.     These   tn  some place or another for myself and  Tom, and the Indians squatted as tbey  came iu, around the walls on tbe Ilnor.  They were a a strange*  looking crowd.  The depart ment had just whacked out  some    civilized     clothing     to '.them,  which had  apparently   been collected  from tbi' second hand dealer*! in Montreal anil Toi 1*111 o and  lo  which 11 few  weeks   eif serving   their   new   owners  both night anil  day  hail  imprinted 11  I'l-owsiiH'.ss alinnsl, iiiilc.srrihnlili'.     The  lints of I'oui'si* bail had the crown.*) cut  oil' and the e'llges fringed I'or eiriiiiiiient  and   ventilation,   while  lhe pants bail  been ripped lo  resemble  the  national  leggings, which do nut coine  up quite  so high on the person   as the ordinary  t.riiiisi-rs nl* civilization.    The  peculiar,  faint   and   I'.-ule-d   Indian    oilur,   coiu-  po'undi'd from  ce'titur'es of dirt, lepo ���������  smi'ke and kiiinicknick  soon filled tin*  room in spile* of the open  and  in fact  doorli'.ss  dour  and   sasbli'ss  window*.  Tom brii'l'lly announced  the object  of the ini'i'ting   and   the   old chief replied.      His   speech      when      filtered  lhrough   the   usual  idiot nl* ,-m inte-i -  pri'ler,    ran    soiuewbnl    as    follows-.  ������������������Ill' says he is glad   to see  the police*,  he says.    He says   hor   heart  is   bad.  The old squaw has made  ineiliciiie, be  says,    lie says he is  sorry  to  see lhe  women go away.    He says the'Indiai'i*-  nre   afraid,   but   the    police   are  not  afraid he says."    One alter another hi.-  tant'iisliu  council   ropentcel; the   same  thing, the drift, eif   which "was that. I  was obviously   expected   to   elo something: 1 hough in what way it was proposed tbat I should the power  of evil at -the "bei-ki and call of the.: terrible' old lady with  the  extraordinary  name was not so very' apparent.     The  Indians were seined  of their lives of  her and   I   could; see   that   they were  keeping something  back,  hoping that  I woulel   catch .or,   without  their   eli-  reetly putting iiie on  to it.     At   last   I  told'them that  1   was .afraid, the1, case  scarcely i-aiue within mv power tei settle, and then one* of the  young hue ks  plucked  up   courage   enough  to  hint  that, thu medicine which Mrs.  Bobtail  had made was,  tbey  believed,   bidden  in her   tent,   and   that   if   I   niaile   a  search for it and  found  nnd destroyed  it, the* spell   would  be*   btnken.     This  idea 'brought'' I he   11 latter 'r lire .more  within the range of  practical  politics,  so to speak, nnel  f said  if {.they would  show me when, tht* old  squaw's  tepee  was     pitched,    I ��������� would   do   as   they  wished.

Now I had seen one or two curious  thingjj. atiKing tbe Indians myself and  so was not ini-lineil to pooh poeih  Tom's peculiar story. Just then his  wife came forward to take the sleepy  chilil and put ber tei bod. "You th'.nk  yourself smart whatever,-.-.English,"  she saiil. '���������You'd better leave the old  wife alone." It was evident that Mrs.  Bobtail was 1 person of sonif consider-  .-itiein for her connection with the  powers of evil. As for Tom, he evidently had no doubt whatever in  the c������.o.*ie assigned for the gay nntl  frivolous liehavior of his hitherto irreproachable," from a department standpoint, charges, and looked upon ine as  a perfect godsend, since I might lie  able to draw the tire of the old witch's  wrath. ���������Yon. would think that no  white man would ever net to believe  such nonsense*.
