TROUT LAitf DISTRICT  Coming" Rapidly to the Front���������And  Kootenay Newspapers1 Predict That  Locality Has a Promising Future  A great dual lias lately been heaid  concerning the wonderful prospects of  the aliove district, which up to within  the la-jt few months has not been  more than superficially explored.  Now, however, the mining public are  becoming acquainted with the possibilities which lie before the placo and  quits a'lot of attention has been  turned in tliat direction. Napoleon  Wells, a well known mining man in  the west, is at.present in Rossland,  having jusl returned from a visit to  the Trout Lake country where he is  interested in several of the leading  claims. In conversation with a Leader  representative Mr. Wt'lls gave Rome  interesting details of the new 'district.  He said he was surprised at the great  surface showing of ore there, which it  would bo difficult lo' excel anywhere.  The ledges appear to tin verse an  extensive mineral belt stretching from  Fish Creek right through to Fort  Steele. They carry silver, copper and  load in greater or less quantities and  some marvellous, assays have been  obtained running up to .several  hundreds of dollars per ton, including  a fair percentage of gold, which  should certainly help out the cost of  treatment considerably. Most oi the  mines are situated .aliove the limber  belt, which means a high altitude, and  consequently in winter there is very  little inducement to pack out ore. The  workings are yet of course in .inly of a  surface character, but! sufficient is  already known to justify the opinion  that with more extensive exploitations  permanent and profitable operations  can be carried on.- .This remark is of  course contingent upon the completion of the C..P.,R, branch railway  into this' country, .at present "under  construction. Now, .the expense, of  shipping ore,.- unless selected parcels,  is quite prohibitory to any" extensive  treatment of lhe general ore, which is  being stacked. The Silver Cup. upon  which most work has been done, has a  large ..mount of good ore on Uie dump  that even considering the present high  charges would pay to ship. No effort,  however, will be made in this direction  till hot tor means of transportation  exist. With the completion of the  railroad iuto this country itis cerraiu  that a very general and substantial  advance will bo made all round.���������  Kossland Leader.  THOMSON'S LAHDiHQ  THE MINESJJF LARDEAU  An Americau Mining Man's Opinion of  That District  A well-known American mining  man who recently visited the Lardeau  country, to a I1i_ra_,u man the other  day made tl-.e following startling remarks about the. future of tho mining  possibilities nf that country:  " I believe in a very short period of  time to sea within it radius of from 10  to 15 miles of Fergu3on more rich and  prosperous mines than lie within a  radius of forty miles of Rossland.  Why, the prospects iu tho, Lardeau  which are now partially ��������� opened up  have showing, of minerals that would  surprise the world, and when they  are properly opened up will fully  demonstrate my remarks to he true.  The formation of the X,ardcan is in  place, the same as it is found in the  hestminingdistriclsof Idaho, Montana,  Colorado and othor states of the  Union in which I have prospected and  mined for the past thirty years. It is  not faulty, as will be found to exist in  the southern part of the district."  r/i. MAN DEAD  A  Budget  of  Interesting   Mining  and  Personat News  Thomson's Landing, Sept. 23.���������On  the ISth inst. Iticbaril Craig and Mrs.  C.taig of Truro, N.S., parents of Andy  Craig, arrived at the Landing, Tliey  seem very well pleased with our little  burg. Mr. Craig says he is very much  surprised to see such lovely .garden  flowers and vegetables, uud to lind  that we have had no frost a_ yet this  full.  Francis F. Paget of Victoria, and  Ben Kearney of the Landing came in  on Thursday from a hunting trip up  Menhenick Creek. They succeeded  in bringing down a large carrihno with  a fine pair of antleis, which Mr.  Paget intends sending to England.  The Goldsmith-Lai'deau Co. who are  working their property up Fool Creek,  are in 51 feet of the cross-cut tunnel  and struck the hanging wall with an  excellent shewing of grey copper and  galena.  Business here is a little dull just at  present, but we still livo in hopes of  better times in tho near future.  "We had heavy rains here on the  20th, 21st and 22nd, and we can see a  little snow on the far off mountain  peaks.  There are registered at the Prospector's Exchange, 3.II. Scott, of England, VV. G. Easton, 3. Townsend and  J. K. Leckio, of Rossland, tind Mr.  Banish, of Kevelstoke.  Mrs. J. XV. Thomson lias gone lo  Revelstoke on a visit.    ���������  I. M. Citron, general merchant, has  gone to Rossland nn tt business trip.  11. NeedhaiQ has charge of the store  during Mr. Citron's absence.  I. Bates, proprietor of the Pioneer  Hotel, and Jf. Porter are having good  sport, geese.duck and grouse shooting,  and with fair success.      jj  All's. J. M. Green's beautiful little  cottage is now complete aud the pride  of the Landing.  Malcolm Beaton arrived in town on  Friday evening with the pack train,  after packing 130 sacks of me from  the i_thel mine lo Trout Lake City' for  shipment.  A   Prospector   Found   on   the    Lardo  River, Near Trout Lake -  - Lardo River, Sept. 20.���������Last Sun-  daj- a party of prospectors were  ascending the Lardo river, when a  short distance above the big log jam,  aiiout one and a half miles from Trout-  Lake they encountered ,t terrible  stench which apparently had its  origin on a baron lite opposite side of  the river where, they could distinguish an.object that had some resemblance to a human being. Wishing to  satisfy themselves they proceeded  back down to the jam on which tliey  ctussGcl the river, again making their  way up stream ' through the heavy  brush .that fringes the' biirl When  the latter .point was gained a gruesome spectacle presented itself to  view. Investigation showed it to be  the body of n. man, presumably that  of some prospector in tho last stages  of decomposition.  The body or skeleton had.on a pair  of nrdiuary prospector's slioes, heavy  w.ollen socks, heavy ribbed grey or  white drawers, belted on with a  leather bell, no trousers or vest, red  California wool undershirt and dark,  broad cutaway coat of good material.  ,The man was of heavy build and  apparently five feet nine inches in  height, weighing in the neighborhood  oUS0-pouncls;-dai'k���������brown���������hail'-and  beard of the some color.  For the purpose of finding some  clue to the identification of the body  the clothing was partially cut from it.  Nothing was found in tho pockets,  however, except a "Jieavy t'wo-bhided  pocket knife with a buck-horn handle,  and a quia ter of a pound tin .box of T  and B. brand. The discoverers of the  body signed >a deposit ion in accord  with tho facts set forth in order that  the coroner of the district might be  properly notified. This was done as  soon as communication wilh him  could be had. The body was buried  on the spot.���������Kootenaian.  St. Peter's Church'  Taking for his text the words from  t.he Revelation of St. .Tohn, "I saw a  door open in heaven," Rev. C. Paget,  Dean of Iowa, preached an impressive  sermon at St. Peter's church ������b morning prayer last Sunday. lie shewed  that while Christ Himself is the Door,  His hnly church on earth is also tho  open door through which men pass  into the spiritual world, a world  which may be far closer to us than we  think, and that even the material  places of worship are also doors into  heaven and places of heavenly lest,  and the ancient sei-virus of tho church  and especially the solemn Eucharistic  servico of the altar, aro doors through  which the worship of the church here  on earth joins with the songs of the  redeemed and the praises of the angels  in heaven. In the evening the Dean  preached again on tho force of surroundings on conduct to a large and  deeply interested congregation.  Next Sunday the congregation of  St. Peters will hold its harvest festival. There will be a celebration of  the Holy Eucharist at 8 a.ni., morning  prayer and second celebration of tlie  Holy Eucharist at 11 and Evensong at  7:30. Offerings of flowers and fruit  and help in decorating the cliurcli ate  invited for Saturday.  FERGUSON ITEMS  No Postoffice Yet���������The  Strike   on  tli.

R. Darke has the contract.  The owners of the Black Eagle here  are looking over the property with a  view to opening up the work on it.

The deal for the Black Diamond  group, at the head of Silver Tip creek,  on the north fork of the l_.ariU-.-it  liver, 10 miles from Ferguson, . has  gone through. Three tons of ore as u  trial shipment is now being taken out.

Armed with warrants for the  arrest of Frank and Foster Lemon, the  proprietors, and .Tohn Whitey, the  boss canvassman, and armed with  writs of attachment on the show,  Sheriff Dempsey and live deputies  met the train at the depot as it was  "passing ~tivroT;gir~tIie'~cityi pit route  from the Palouse country, and proceeded to take possession of the horses  elephants, aud other animais and  paraphernalia of the circus. When it  came to placing the three men under  arrest a show of resistance was made,  but the posse soon landed the prisoners  in jail, where they will remain until  Alonday before being able to give  bail.  Stephen C. Dawson, of Tacoma,  caused the warrants to be issued. Last  Wednesday night afler the performance here Dawson struck for his salary long past due, and he alleges that  the two Lemons and Whitey assaulted  him with an iron liar, 'fracturing his  skull and beating hiin into insensibility, after wliich, he says, Whitey  went through his ciol.hes and stole his  watch and also curried away his personal effects on the train. In addition  to swearing out wairants, Dawson  also sues for $2,000 damages for the  in juricsj received.  On this suit and upon suit for wages  filed today by nine other discharged  employees of the circii-, who were left  here stranded, attachments were  is-iied, and upon these writs the  sheriff tool: possession of a large portion of the circus property.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1898  Omdurman  Telegram:      The    British,    people  the world over- can be  pardoned for  rejoicing  at  the   magnificent  victory  of   Sir   Herbert   Kitchener   over   the  Mahdl at Omdurman.    Gordon Is now  avenged.     The   desertion   and   death  of General Gordon and the subsequent  surrender of the Soudan to the Mahd-  ist  hordes   are-   humiliations    under  which the British people have chafed  for years.    When- the  Salisbury  government attained a settled  tenure of  power,   it  determined   to   reverse   the  ignominious   policy   of    scuttle   pursued by Mr. Gladstone.    It determined  upon ' the  reconquest  of   tlie  Soudan,  quietly  and   deliberately   it  made  its  preparations.       The   expedition   was  placed  in charge of Sir Herbert Kitchener, who, during the past two years  has  been  cautiously   but  determinedly making himself master ot tne Nile  valley.    His  tactics  have  been   thorough  and  scientific.    They  have had  nothing In common with those wliich  . sent  Hicks   Pasha  with   an   entirely  inadequate   force,   and   with   no   bate  of supplies, to be cut to pieces in tlie  desert ;     nor   with   those   that  sent  General   Gordon  armed   with   a  bible  and a walkingstick to hold Equatoria  against a hordo of fanatical Dervish  rebels.    Kitchener's   march  has   been  conducted   with   the   regularity   of   a  -uAOhinc     a   miffllLy     mnoliine     wlio-p.  - onward movement is crushing and  Irresistable. For some time Kitcheners  slow but sure inarch attracted-' little  attention. But the brilliant victory  won at Atbara some- months since  made the public keenly alive to its  progress. Atbara demonstrated that  lt was only a question of a short  time till the power of the Khalifa  would be crushed completely. For  the past week" or two the attack upon  Omdurman,- the Dervish stronghold,  has been eagerly awaited. The expected has now happened. Omdurman lias fallen, the Khalifa is routed  and the Mahdist dominion over the  Soudan is overthrown. Tho disgraces of tho past have been more  thaui wiped out by tho skill of British generalship and the valor of British soldiers. The battle of Omdurman was a brilliant one. Ths foe,  though   a  savage  one,   was  a  foe  of  -conspicuous���������bra veryr-���������It���������is- impossible to withhold admiration for the  heroism of the Arab emirs" in their  magnificent but futile charges on  the British lines. Still less is it possible to withhold admiration for the  cool courage with which our owti  men withstood those desperate onslaughts. The success of General Kitchener's expedition sheds glory upon  himself and his men; and also upon  the government which organized it.

It has been a mutual  disappointment to the emperor and  his English friend, that circumstances  still fresh in the public mind have  precluded a recent change of hospitalities which, a few years ago occupied so much attention.

The last pitched battle between the  rival factions occurred in Liverpool  on a recent Sunday. It was a e."e_t  function, and in many respects resembled one of those delightful enler-  tainments so justly popular in tne  neignuorliooa or uonnybrool.. St.  James's church was the scene of disturbance, and was in the possession  of a Protestant mob for several hours.  The vicar was heckled and baited, and  finally spat upon, by the crowd, and  only saved from bodily harm by the  police. The proceedings are thus described by a Liverpool paper: -'At intervals peals of derisive laughter rang  tnrougli the cliurch. and the vicar  was subject to frequent interruptions.  'Judas,' 'traitor' and klndro-1 epithets  were hurled at the vicar, who at one  time seemed to be inclined to beat a  rf-treaf, but in response to cries of  'lie a. man.' he remained in the pulpit.  The celebration of mass at the chance!  at tho close provoked cries of 'Fire  up.' and the disgraceful scenes culminated when the procession ro the  vcfitry took place." and yet. in the  fr.ee of such proceedings as these, t.he  clergy ask, "why don't men go to  church ?

As the vessel gracefully left the  ways, and slid, without mishap, into  the water, she was named the  Mount   Royal,  oul  of   compliment  to  tho lady who performed the ceremony. Sir. Jones, of Elder & Co., In  replying lo a volo of thanks said:  '"That people scarcely know what has  beeu doue for Canada. Lord Slratli-  cona  had   referred     to   the    tonnage  carried by their llrm during the  year,-but Ills Lordship did not mention the cost at which .that, tonnage  was  carried.     it  was  a    remarkable  featuro nf that trade, - that all the  merchandise     was    carried   by   their  steamers     at   something     like     one  seventh of a farthing per ion per  ' milo. whicli was io say, that ono  ton wus carried for a penny for every  2S miles run.

BRITISH SEA MR N  Apropols ot the agitation as to tho  manning of Uritish ships by llrltis.li  crews, a firm lu tho cily of London  relates a recent experience of its own.  The captain of a certain vessel owned in tho colonics made a point of  engaging an all British crow In London. When they were taken on  board at the East India docks, the  majority bore evidences of recent  'sanguinary encounters; provoked by  alcoholic excitement, and at the loading berth they refused in a body to  trim the ballast. The captain resolved to appeal to a magistrate, but  the delinquents did not wait the issue, all but' two promptly deserting.  "Needless to say," the cotnunica-  llon winds up, "the next crew engaged by the master wore not to bo  British." But surely this is an exceptional   case.  THE CZAR'S NOTE  The Russian peace proposal has  been the ono topic of conversation  when men havo gathered together  today, lt has so thoroughly taken  people by surprise tliat ono can hardly say yet that a public opin on has  been-formed upon il. Tho newspapers  reflect this absence of view most  faithfully,- for while there is nothing  but praise for the motives that dictate tho Czar's, invitation lo the  powers, there is almost a complete  absence of speculation as to the existence of any ulterior design. One  thing appears to bo clear, namely,  lhat the German government wrls  sounded as lo its probablo attitude  before any steps wero openly taken.  One paper unkindly suggests that  Nicholas has taken the wind out of  the other Emperor's sails, and that  William II intended to do something  of the kind while he was in Palestine. ���������  CONDEMNED FISH  An illustration of tho intensity of  the heat is found in the condemnation of fish nl Billingsgate Market,  221 tons of lish having been destroyed  in the first 25 days of the present  month, against 135 tons in the 31  days of August 1S97. The quantity  so treated lnsl month was - only 93  toi!,s, and in Juno 7S tons. Monday  last was the hottest day of the current month, and the result, was that  31 tons of fish wore found to be unfit  I'or consumption. This wasted food  is hermetically sealed in tanks with  carbolic acid, taken to liolvidrc down  li.e Thames and made Into fish manure, excellent tor the land. The loss  when the fish is condemned falls  chiefly on the small owners.  PUG-NOSES  and took no part In tho sales, bo far  as lhey wero carried on in the ring.

GEO GOUIN   BACK  To the Editor of The Herald :  Sir:    As Galileo long ago said, "tbo  world moves."  We'live in an age of stirring events  when more is being accomplished in'  a few mouths than would have taken  centuries to bring about in former  times. The feeling of good will between our people und the Americans  is. all the more noticeable since the  Spanish-American war. It was a  blessed thing that led Great Britain  to throw her influence on the side  of the United States. Tho good feeling thus evokd on both sides has already been productive of tho best results. Out of it has grown the international Quebec conference, whicli it  is hoped will lead to a final settlement  of many questions which until lately  ���������have-alienaieu���������the-two-peoples-who  are after all of one common, sLock.  one origin, one religion, one sentiment substantially.aud whose aim anil  .;future destiny as the Anglo-Saxon  race must of necessity make them  leaders in the van of civilization nnd  Christianity. It is a matter of 1 hank-  fulness that the empire of Great Brilain is devloplng and strengthening  over an area of the globe on which the  sun never sets, and further that Eii������-  bi-i-.U policy and influence are extending over foreign countries, suen ;.s  China. Egypt, and the far east. A  fee'ing of pride and satisfactio-.i must  justly fill the heart of every true British subject at the thought of General  Kitchener's grand victory in the Soudan and his avenging' of the brave  Gordon, who described him tKitch-  ener) as "the most superior of British officers."  Mingled with these feelings comes  one of pity for the little empress of  Austria, one of the^ most gentle and  amiable characters 'of the age, the  victim- of a senseless and horrible as-  sassinaton scheme of Anarchists.  This is but one of the many assassinations the world has witnessed in  recent years, viz: Presidents Lincoln  and Garfield, a .Russian czar, the  Spanish premier, President Carnot of  the French republic. All victims of  a "mental and moral obliquity which  in ages long past brought much mischief and violence in the name,of religion, and which it is the aim of  modern Christian religion to correct  or banish."  The recent appointment of Mr. Curzon. parliamentary secretary of the  foreign office, as viceroy of India���������  in succession to Lord Elgin���������has met  with the entire approval of the leading  British.journals, and deservedly so.  It is'to be hoped that our new governor general the Earl of Minto, will  prove as popular an appointment.  There will be some measure of excitement over the plebiscite vote of  the 29th, but we predict that nothing  practical will come out of the movement for two reasons; first that the  question of temperance has been made  a hobby for party politicians to ride  upon, and secondly that the advocates of prohibition are not agreed  among themselves.  It  is  a  question  if  the  ratepayers  are willing to he taxed eight or ten  i millions  to  make  up   for    the    Iofs  should prohibition carry . Apologizing  . for space.  I Yours truly,  1 (MISS) F. C. STEELE.  The Latest From   Dawson   City���������Some  Interesting Impressions.  George Gouin returned to Calgary  on -Thursday morning after a year's  residence in the greatest mining camp  of the north." His trip evidently  agreed with him. lie" is not tanned  and looks as i������ ho had come from  New York instead of Dawson."  Mr. Gouin left Calgury on August  2nd, 1S97. He had a rough experience on. the trip in. having to abandon a portion of his supplies. On  arriving at Dawson ho secured cm-'  ployment for the winter wnu the N.  A. T. company, who with .tho A. C.  company (both American concerns)  virtually control the meichantiie-bus-  iness-of- Ihe-co un try;  Gouin did a good business in handling  claims for other partios as mining  broker and estate agent. Ho brought  back' a largo collection of nuggets,  somo of which ho washed out himself.  He has some excellent photographs  of Dawson, showing the town of  shacks nnd tents stretching along the  base of the mountain tor miles, with  l.ouselown in Iho distance across tho  mouth  of  the  Klondike.  R. J. Jcphson hail recovered from  a bad attack of dysentery and Wultor  Hooley from an attack of scurvy. Mr.  Jephson is doing well In his profession  ���������surveying. Dr, McDonald Is p-noticing.

During the summer people poured  in by thousands. lu July the  Mounted Police counted S,400- tents  in Dawson. The main street is probably one of the most crowded in the  world. Thousands of men who had  never seen a mine came in with picks,  shovels and gold pans. Some of them  never moved out side of Dawson.  Others walked to some of lho creeks  and decided they had had enough of  gold   mining.  When any particular coiniiiOi'f.L}!  runs short prices shoot up ,to an enormous - figure. When the saloon  keepers were burned out it was discovered that the town was short on"  nails. Wire nails then sold as high  as $600 a keg���������. "i a pound. Chickens  were an ounce each���������v.u. A meal of  chicken.: and Irish potatoes at a restaurant cost $S. Fresh potatoes are  called "Irish" lo distinguish them  from the evaporated species.  Currency (bills and coin) is known  as "chechawqua" .money, "chechaw-  qua" being tlie local name for tenderfoot, as distinguished -from '"sour  dougi.o     told  timers).  Mr. Gouin agrees ivith other disinterested authorities in describing  the official administration at Dawson  as "rotten.". He regards the looseness with whicli things are run by  the officials as a serious obstacle to  the success of the camp. The hay.  wood, and waterfront privileges have  been disposed of to individuals in a  way that gives them monopolies and  there is naturally much indignation  among the public. Some idea of the  magnitude ot the waterfront privilege may bo had from the fact that  Mr. Gouin had to pay $80 a month  for enough ground to put his oflice  tent on.  Mr. Gouin was ono of the license  commisioncrs appointed .by Mr.fJul-  yca. He says much trouble and uncertainty was caused by Major Walsh  interfering with Mr. Bulyea's management of the liquor system.  As lo the general prospects ot the  tamp, Mr. Gouin believes the country  has not yet been half prospected.  I Ind reds of thousands of dollars were  taken out of hill claims this summer.  Gold was found in gravel near the  tops of mountains. Generally speaking tlie creeks discovered last year  and the year before have not fulfilled  expectations but new streams carrying gold in paying quantities are being discovered at intervals.  - Besides having acquired several  claims   on   the  outlying  creeks,   Mr.  tt I* __.

Sih: Your ar.i.oiiynioiis correspondent "I-ardeau Prospector," is somewhat sarcastic at a newspaper man  daring to offer advice to claim owners  in the Trout Lake district, many of  whom probably never saw a mine in  thoir lives and have'.picked up all they  knew about mineral ledges since tlieir  arrival in Kootenay a fow���������-some of  them very few���������years ago. Yonr  correspondent assumes that a newspaper man can have little or no experience in mining matters, but in  that hu errs. There is no piofession  in the world, apart from practical  mining itself, in whicli an observant  man can learn so much of the science  of mining, theoretically,-ns i.lil.ing a  newspaper in a mining dislrict. The  editor   must  necessarily  have  every  thing explained to litu. and samples  K'.ilimitlfd for inspection before ho  can publish a true an accurate report.

"THE LEAD QUESTION  Hugh Sutherland, who has been  studying the development of the silver  lead ore. mines, says this question has  been overlooked so far by the people  of the east, ''Canada gots the worst  uC the United States duties on this  class of shipments into the United  Slates," ho says, " Tliere is a duty of  a cent and a half a pound on all silver-  lead ore wliich is taken into tho  United Status from British Columbia  for lreal ment. The American smelting companies who export, this lead  bullion to a foreign country get a rebate from tlie United States Government of 90 per cent, of this cent and a  hall". Therefore the Canadian mine  owners are charged a heavy duty for  the privilege of having their ore  treated; yet, as a rule, the lead contents of Bi itish Columbia oro pay all  expenses and leave- the silver contents clear profit. The mining men of  lirilish Columbia aro aroused to a  degree that prompt action is being  taken to remedy this industry. They  have prepared a petition for the enlightenment of the Canadian commissioners at the Quebec conference, requesting them to use tlieir influence  to have this duty removed. Lead  smelling, he says, is very expensive.  If we do smelt our own ore we have  no home market for the lead: and if  we ship it into the States there is two  cents a pound duty on bullion lead to  contend with. Tl-.e government  should establish lead works, liny tlie  lead ore from British Columbia mines,  smelt it and make a market for it.  This would give employment to  thousands of men, and save the .duty  both ways. The lead that is imported  into the country in tho manufactured  state would then be bought in Canada  and manufactured here also. Instead  of bonusing smelters the government  should own the smelters aud refine  the ore at some common point. The  lead industry of Canada'is going to be  so large that if the, government fails  to get duty removed at the Quebec  conference, it should pco in and establish the necessary works for the de-  veloptnentof this industry on a purely Canadian basis. Tbe duty on the  ore now amounts to from $15 to 818  por ton. depending upon tho quantity  of lead it contains."���������B. C. Mining  Critic.
