TROUT LAKE DISTRICT  ONE  OF   GREAT  PROMISE   AND  ABOUNDS WITH MINERAL .  RICH GOLD AND SILVER MINES  A Railway to be Constructed Shortly  from the Head of Kootenay Lake to  Trout Lake City���������Capitalists are  Looking Over the District.  (From the Trout I.ako Topic).  Few towns are, possessed of greater  promise or of finer natural advantages  than Trout Lake City. This thriving  town from its location in the mining  division of Trout Lake is bound * to be  tlie headquarters for the various companies which will, in the future, operate tho rich gold and silver mines  which have boon- discovered in the  dislrict during tha past four or five  years. It is located at lhe northern  extremity of Trout Lake and will  command, the supply trade of all the  country bounding its shores, au.1  wliich recent exploration Ii;i3 douion-  sti-ated lo be second-to none in British  Columbia as regards the richness of  its ore bodies. It is connected by  trail and wagon road with till tbe  principal mines of the district. Then,  too,,Lardeau Creek'empties into the  lake oil tbe eastern side of the town,  and a large sb.-ue of the trade resulting from tha operation of tbe mines  which aio dotted" heie and there on  the mountains on either side, of the  valley will find its way to the mer  chants of Trout Lake Cily..  It is- further..expe(."led . that before  many-months a line -of railroad will  bo constructed'" froirf= the, head..'of  ..Konleiriy Luke tj_ Trout ij.ike City,  and from tlience t(\,An-owhi-n'd, with  branch lines-up the north and south  forks of Lardeau creek to the rich  mining properties of tlfat neighborhood. And in this event sill the ore  fiom these muies would have to puss  through Trout Lake City, unking of  this town a railroad centre arid the  chief distributing point fur the district.  Already the initial si.ep _h.-is been  ta-feen towards solving the problem of  tran-por.ation and it will'only be a  few weeks uutil a steamer is iu-lhe  "course of .construction to operate.on  the lake and carry supplies to the  seVeriil^points-tiiereoh~nearestr"and  connected by trail with the scene of  mining operations.  To reach Trout Lake.City from the  main line of the C.P.R., ears will have  to be changed at Revelstoke and the  train running to Arrowhead boarded.  Arrowhead is some 2S' miles distant  from Revelstoke and is situated at the  upper end of Arrow lake. From this  point Ji short I rip Iiy water lands the  traveller at, Thomson's Landing, from  whence a stage line runs throughout  for the beauty and grandeur of tho  mountain scenery through -.which the  route passes. At all points along the  path of journey the very best of accommodation is available, and when  Tiout Lake City is reached the choice  of four hotels, Ciich equipped in first  class style, is presented to the truv  eller, and no mailer which one of  these he selects for his temporary  home, his comfort will be carefully  looked after. i  After having finally settled, himself  to his satisfaction be will find on  iu-pection that tbe town is possessed  of fcur stores in addition to the hotels  mentioned, a sawmill, a postofllce, a  telephone service, with outside points,  a schoolhouse, a meat market, a printing ollice, barber shop, blacksmith  shop, three livery stables, government  buildings, drugstore and assay oflice,  If he decides on settling in the district he will find that as the townsite  of Trout Lake City has been crown  granted, he will be able to procure a  clear title to any lots whicli he may  chance to purchase. If he is fond of  sport ind would fish or shoot, he will  find the lake and the creeks emptying  into it. abundantly stocked with the  speckled beauties, and the mountain  slopes .surrounding the lake presents  tbe very best opportunities for. the  use of the rifle. Game of'every description abounds, among the different  varieties may be mentioned: Caribou,  ^Ybiintain goat, bear, wolves, cougar,  lynx, grouse and cluck; in fact lo the  practical sportsman this part of tbe  .district presents innumerable "advan  tages for the indulgence of his  favorite pastime.  If he has come in with lhis intention  of investing in mining properties or  for purposes of exploration, he will  lind that this point is the very best  one he could select as his headquarters  It is centrally situated and from here  he can operate in every direction.  His position at this point commands  the whole lower lake section and the  Lardeau-Diincan counlry. It is within  two hours ride of tho north and south  forks of Lardeau . creek, and is the  terminus oC the stage line from Thomson's Landing. Last summer some  wonderfully rich properties were  located within a very short distance  of Tront Lake City, and just as soon  is tlie season is sufficiently advanced  lhey will be worked, and it is confidently expected by their owners that  before snow flics next fall they will be  shipping ore. The ' pioporlios are  situated on Humphries. Glacier, Five  Mile, Canyon, tind Haley creeks.  Taking all things into consideration,  then, it will not be an exaggeration,  in view of the exceeding richness of  Trout Lake ores, and the remarkable  progress that lias., been made during  the past year, I hat Trout Lake City  will develop into one of the largest  and liveliest towns in West Kootenay.  THE BANKJiQBBERY  Police Actively at Work   on   the   Winnipeg Mystery���������Manager Warned  Winnipeg. Oct. 0���������The police are  working very actively on the Wolsen's  bank robbery case, and hope to be  successful. All the other banks have  been warned of the robbery and asked to keep a watch for the stolen  money.  It is learned tint the money, (337,-  000 in ordinary bank notes and $25,-  000 in clearing house certificates, was  in the treasury on Wednesday, "Sep  tember 2Sth,' the last time the treasure  box was opened prior to the discovery  of the Ihfft." on j.,Tuesday-, afternoon,  Oetob6r,_th..___;'4r30 o'clock' in the  afternoon. On the, 28th. the money  was seen by the clerks in charge. It  .was not counted, but by its bulk it  appeared to be intact. On Tuesday  afternoon last, when .the treasury was  again opened for the purpose of making a deposit the treasury compartment was empty. The lock combinations of the vault and the vault itself  paesented no signs of having in any  way been violently tampered with in  order .to gain an entrance to the  treasury department and it wns realized that some person or persons who  knew the combination had committed  th������_ro_bb_ery, Fiy.e_co_tn.biiialioii._locks  and one key lock have to bo opened  before the treasury compartment can  be entered. Each combination is  known only to one man, and tbe final  door opening into the treasury com  paitnient has two combination locks  and two inen must-be present when  the door is opened. Ono of these combinations is supposed to be known only  to the manager of the bank and the  other to tbe accountant, or in the  absence of cither to some one designated by the manager. Thero arc  probably threo or "four members of  the Molsons' bank staff who know the  combinations of the main portion of  the vault.  THK HANK WAS WARNED  Several weeks ago Manager Phopo.  received a warning from a well known  private detective that un attempt  would be made to rob the bank. He  gave the name of one of the parties  implicated in the plot. In consequence  of this warning two clerks have slept  in tho bank every night since September 12th. That that plot had any  connection with the robbery of the  ."502.000is not believed, for tbe mnn  whose name was given .to Manager  Phepoe was in jail at the timo and i.s  still thore, serving three months'  sentence.  FISH GREEK GAMP  A   District   of Rich   Mines   and   Prospects That are  Reliable  To the Eilitor of the Hkkald.  Sin: I have noticed with pain that  nobody .appears to have thought it  worth while to send you an account  of the Fish creek camp, and Lhought  il time something was said of our rich  mining district, a fow remarks might  prove interesting to you or some of  your readers. Our district is small,  and if not young iu settlement, is certainly juvenile as regards the quantity  of "development work done in the past.  This year, however, a new rcgims'lia.-  been inaugurated and our old prospecting friends have devoted moro of  their time to opening up properties  which they already possessed, with  results whicli have proved eminently  satisfactory. My memory is bad, but  it this moment I can recall the names  of a few of the long list of almost  phenomenal propositions which are  located tributary to Fish creek. .Pool  creek runs in on tlie east side about  six miles from the mouth, and on this  creek and Moh-iwk creeks are locat-'d  tbe Beatrice group, owned by Messrs.  Boucher and Fitltnur, and at present,  under bond'to Beer Bros., of Kelson,  at lhe (omrnrlalile figure of $150,000.  The Mohawk, Glacier and Pom-man  groups, all of whicli have hail 'nioie or  less development work-done on them,  and in every case large bodies of high  grade ore has been discovered, About  one milt" further up Messrs. Tweedlo  and Baud ry are hard ".it work under  the direction of W. J. Girard, opening  up a first-class copper claim which  tbey discovered early in the summer.  Four miles north Lexington creek  furnishes us with at least forty claims  of varying, hub for the most part  undetermined value. Prominent  among tlicm are the Nellie group  with a crosscut 25 feet below the  surfaco, exposing a fine body of ore,  consisting of galena and carbonates,  and the Lexington, for.which a "large  figure was retused last summer."Boyd  Creek "contributes the Glengarry,  which, under the management of O.D..  Hoar, has recently made a shipment  of high grade ore. The Kootenay  Chief, belonging to Blackwood Bros.,  of Winnipeg, with a very large body  of galena in sight, and in the Silver  Tip basin are located some excellent  claims by Mr. Lux, and three by Mr.  Ernest, of which, at least one, the  Copper Cliff, is for an undeveloped  claim, tbe most remarkable in tbe  district; fifteen feet of mixed quartz,  copper and galena, assaying 2-10 ounces  to the-loii;-" ' ~~ ��������������������������� ' '��������� ������������������=���������  This is only treating of the east side  of tbe creek, and although the west  side lias just as good a right, to be  considered, this letter has already run  to such an unaccountable length that  I will content myself with mentioning  the Whistler, on McDougall creek,and  the Copper King and Sunset on Men  heimick ci eek.   ���������  Yours truly,  B. E. G.  Comaplix, October 5. 1S03.  NORTH K001ENAY MINES  BOUND   TO    PAY    LARGE   DIVIDENDS  TRANSPORTATION    IMPROVING1   .  .   GROUND HOG BASIN  Some Fine Samples   Brought   in   From  That Camp  Gns Hedstrom came dnwti on Monday from Ground Hog Basin,"-bringing  with him about 22 lbs. of excellent  samples of free milling ore. Mr.  Hedstrom was showing the samples  to a Herald reporter yesterday, and,  to say, the least of it, they were the  finest collection of free milling samples that we have yet seen in the  country. Every sample contained  free gold that could be seen with the  naked eye. The scmples are all frrnn  thu property owned by the London  and II. C. Alliance Co., of which Mr.  Erbslow is the manager.  THOMSON'S LANDING  Business Brisk���������Miners Hard at Work  Developing Their Different Properties  ��������� News :n General���������Personals.  (From Our Own Corresronilen;.)

Arrow Lake, Big Bend'  and Illecillewaet Mining Divisions  Developing Rapidly���������A   Bonanza   for  the Capitalist���������Pay Ore is Plentiful.  (From the Spo-diio Spoke.laini Kcvlsiv)  ON AKHOW  LAKE  Mining in this district  may  still   be  said to be in its  infancy,   iiut a  large'  number of claims have  boon   located  near Burton City,  on   Cariboo  creek,-  at   lhe  lower   end   of   Upper   Arrow  Lake,   near Galena  bay, and   on   the'  western side of Upper Arrow Lake, at'  a point nearly opposite  the Halcyon  hot   springs.    Especially   on   Cariboo'  creek are  the  prospects  encouraging. ���������  Thtte   is   also   a    property   close  to  Arrowhead,   on   the   northeast   arm",  known as tbe  Great   Western,   where'  the work done is showing up well. The  ore generally   is   a- galena,   having  a*  value of from $10 to SSG per ton.!  RKVELSTOKE A:.~n DIG TJEXD   "      ..  More activity is  going  on   in   this-   '  district than for some time past.  The principal work   o.n  placer  prop-'  erties is thut on the French creek and5  Consolidated creek claim-,, where  the"5  gold   dust   taken   out   has   averaged  S250 per week.  -The quartz properties of the Carnes'  Greek Mining Company, known as the  Homestead,      Hard pan].      Aberdeen,,  Rosebei-y,     Salisbury.    Arsenic    and  Imperial are showing up well.   ..These  are     situated     about   HO   miles  froin  Revelstoke, which gives them a great   -  advantage  over other  claims  in   the  Big Bend and  assays, run  as  high as  SJ5 to the ton in gold and some silver"  values."-' ..���������.. .-. -;..,,.'���������..-, '   - .  ; There is a considerable  number" of  other   placer properties and  mineral'.  claims beiug developed at the  present,  time, with, in some cases, encouraging  results.    Hitherto lack  of transport:.-J  tion facilities has' acted as a detriment' ���������  to the Big Bend country,   but -in  this  respect a slow but   sure improyement  is takingfplace, and confidence ,is. felt  in   rei-ults   eventually   proving   satis--'*  factory to those now  investing judic- '  ioii-ly   in  mining   properties in  this ',  portion of the Kootenay.  ILLECIT-LliW.-ET DIVISION  This division, which may be said   to  commence some miles cast of Revel- ���������"  Tloke on fhe maiTTIiiie eif tlie"Cana<lian  Pacific   Railway   is   well   situated  as '  regards transportation facilities.  The    best  known    properties     are  those   forming  the  Lanark  group  of  claims   (belonging    to    the   Lillooet,  Fraser River and Cariboo Gold Fields, *  Limited) about 15~in   all,  situated   on  the mountains aiiout three miles east '  of    Illecillewaet     station.     On   .the *'  Lanark vein itself the vein was tapped  at three levels above   the  lowest  or  -400-foot level.  jtii aerial tramway was constructed"  in 1S97,  about  Co."i0  feet  in   length  to  connect   the mine with  the flat adjoining the Canadian Pacific Railway  track, closo to which  r. concentrator  was   built.     During   last   year some.  1700 tons of concentrates weie shipped  to   smelters   in   this   country,   of  an  average value of about  ST5  per  ton, '  silver and lead.    The concentrator is '  shut down  for  this   moment, and a  systematic plan of development work  is under   consideration.     The owners  expect to sink down in ore on  the 400"-'  foot> level and at thu same time crosscut on   that   level   to   tho   adjoining  claim,   the   Maple.   Leaf,   to   connect  with the ore body exposed on it.  On the Waverly and Tangier properties, near Albert Canyon, extensive  development work is going on. the  vein on the former property -having  been tapped at three levels, the lowest  being at a depth of 009 feet from the  out cropping"! on the surface. At this  P-opei-ty'a concentrator is being built  ibi _ sunimer.afler which it is expected  a regular output will be maintained.  The concentrate's have a value of  about ������70 to the ton in silver and  lead.  The Dunvegan mineral claim, near  Fis-h river, shipped during 1J_>7 nearly  50 tons of ore to the Si'Iby .smelter at  San Francisco, the ore os.-,ayiiig 00  ounces in silver and i'Z per cent. lead. :  The claim has been bonded for-$15,0-0  with a good probability of a sale  being effected.

Canada's   Disgrace  From The Calgary Herald  When The Herald a few weeks ago  published some serious charges against  the Sifton-Walsh administration in the  Yukon a number of papers whose zeal  for the government exceeded Iheir  respect for the truth tried to shield  their bosses by ridiculing and attacking us. Now the laugh is on the other  side. The evidence brought down by  scores of returning Klonclykers has  not only confirmed The. Herald's  charges but revealed a. state of official  rottenness and disgraceful corruption  and mismanagement that will forever  leave a stain on the honor of the Dominion. The exposures made by this  paper have been more than confirmed  by such independent authorities as The  Times. Renter's, The Graphic, and  Harper's Weekly, whose correspondents can be accused of no desire'to  make things appear worse than lhey  are.  One  of  the  strongest arraignments  oi the administration is lhat made by  Mr.   C.   M.   Woodworth   in   the     Edmonton    Bulletin.      Mr.   Woodworth  was a former member of the .Edmonton   bar.     Writing   from   Dawson   he  says:    "The corrupt and imbecile administration   of  this  country   is   past  description.   I   havo  blushed   so   often  for the good name of my country that  1 have become hardened and blush no  more.    1 can  imagine how visions of  Sodom  would  arise  in  the  minds  of  certain   church   going   people   in   lhe  east had thev seen the social features  ot Major Walsh's regime." Speaking: o������  the mining board organized by Walsh  to supervise Gold Commissioner Fawcett   Sir.   Woodworth     says :       "One  re:tain result was that as to the oaw  ������������������laims on Dominion.they seem to be in  a fair wav to be reserved for friends  at Ottawa':   and as to the bench claims  Major  Walsh   by   issuing  orders  and  countermanding them gave the faithful here a cettain preference, and jobbed   the   honest  prospector.     But  in  ^ihe-i-i"_in_-rocorder-s-o!Uee_a_!_.Ui__in_.  lenities that could be grafted in nourished ainazinglly as if on fruitful soil.  This resulted  from the  fact that the  government   had   blundered   fearfully  in making mining laws for this country.   The most honest and faithful recorder   could scarcely have fitted them  to the set of facts that was here.   Mr.  Fawcett  simply   put  tiie  1S07   regulations in bis pocket and th<~y were noi  known hore  until  the spring ot IS'.'-*  when the 1SS9 regulations had already  supi-eseded     theni.       -Now     whether  claims  staked   ditrin? this  time  xvn-e  ."00 foet, 100 feet or 2=10 feet, or whether there xxeve any reservations d"pend-  _d  upon  whether  the  official   ai.'t4  of  Mr. Kawcett dealing with  the miiwis  over-ride the law made by  the cabinet.    It  is  hard  to  sec  how   the  government  in  these  grants,  ran  fail to  honor  the   acts   of  their  own   official,  but on the other hand Sir. Fawcett is  an exteremly weak administrator.   He  is vacillating and the records  of his  office are so far behind lhat they are  useless: to any but clerks ln his office  and those to whom they supply them.  ������    *   *    *    Corruption     and     jobbery  flourish more than I can even lead you  to  suppose.    Mr.   Faw-U   issues  decrees in direct opposition to the mining  regulations,   and   then   some   fine  morning   revokes   those   decrees,   and  those   who   depended   upon   theni   ..i"~  left    This might be more easily understood if H were not that Mr. I-awcef.  is apparently an honest Christian man.  It would pav tho goverr.ment.howp.ver,  to  pension  him  and  put a  compefn.  mau in his place even if it cost a million  dollars  a  year. .jThe  loss  lo tin  i-ountrv   bv   his   holding  the  posuion  thus far has  fa.r exceeded  that sum:  but   no   corrupt   official   would   do: ire  this man to be removed.   His hones"y  is a cloak to th'jra and his vacillat on  their opportunity."  The fact that Mr. Fawcett was appointed before the present government  caine into power is no excus" for his  retention. Sir. Sifton lost no time in  firing dozens of other officials whoss  oScnce was not a circumstance to this  man-'- Hut probably the explanation  of Mr Fawcett's continuance in office  is that suggested by the concluding  "'-entc-nce of the above extract from Mr.  Woodworh's letter.

When  it  comes to the age    feature,  men are as vain    and    sensitive    as  -a omen.   Indeed, we believe  them to  be even greater story tellers in this  respect than the fairer ses.

One could then plan and gauge  p.verything in advance. K nowing  the exact number of days allotted to  us, and our minds ' having become  familiarized. with ihe idea ot sure  death on a certain .day. we could view  the end with serenity of heart. If a  man knew for a fact that six months  hence his light would go out, he  could stop scraping up" money and  go oft on a long finale spree, winding  ar, in a blaze of glory. A stuff, con-  ������������������.cious of having only one year longer  to be a stuff in. woud hesitate before marrying a nice young lady and  leaving her a widow; although there  might be the chance of the lady horse jf being willing to see the fatal  year shortened by six months, so tliat  she could unstuff herself. There are  a lot of things, we would leave .undone, or strive to do, did we but  know the exact number of our days.  However,  for  our  peace  of  mind,  il  may be best lho way it is.  * _  ���������  Then again, if, like nature in the  spring, we could come to life again  some day and begin the thing afresh,  with the use of memory to furnish  the" experience of past follies, how  we " would repent"; and - try to do  better! Our respective views on subjects and characteristics would bo  reversed. The. wicked would become better, and the gocd see the  folly ot being too good lo the extent  of modifying their sluffy proclivities.  Nunnoloy, for example, would he  found running a small grocery anil  affecting total ignorance ot cayuses  and draw polter; Jerry Boyce. woud  conduct evangelical' servicss in tlie  onou air. and thunder out exordiums  a._ainst tho race track: the editor oi  the South' Edmonton Paindoalor  would be running a poker game and  a blind pig, getilng run in and fined  every once in a "while: while we ourselves -would be discovered whooping  up prohibition on tho strou*. corner  like four of a kind.

(From The Dawson Nugget.)  "Our asinine contemporary of tho  Midnight Sun strikes pay dirt when  he says of Judge McGuire: "llu had  the respects of the bar and the confidence of-the people." Words cannot  express our contempt fur tho .Midnight Sun, the subsidized organ of the  government, the slave of monopolists,  the mouthpiece ot lyianny. The editor i.s a poor, weak, red eyed creature,  with a 'quonsy stomach for our virile  brands of whiskey ami a sneaking regard ror cigarettes. xxe ourselves  have seen him gag at. a strong pipe,  and as for chewing tobacco ho does il  so half heartcdly lhal lie swallows the  juice. He is always complaining of  Red Mike's table d'hote, and says that  salt pork makes him billions. His  greatest dissipation is lo wear a clean  shirt, and as for cards, he will never  vi-mure beyond casino and old maid.  lt is rumored that ha plays "authors" with his oik- compositor, drinks  tea, and likes cats.  When we came to this God-forsaken country the very inhospitality of  the climate provoked all our lighting  qualities at once.

We have tried to put ourselves in  touch with the peoplo, also we think  that it may be said of us, also, that  wo have the respect of the bar (Rod  Mike's" and the confidence of the poo-  pie. Whon we came to Dawson the  first question we asked was: "Is  there a government here?" They told  us  "yes."  "Then," said we, "we're agin it."  Here is where our unfettered proletarian soul showed itself al the first  jump.  Such being our manly code, it is not  surprising that we didn't cotton to the  idiot who edits the Midnight Sun. It  is surprising, however, to find the  aforesaid idiot pn tho same side of the  fence with us wilh respect to Judge  Mcouire, who is to leave us soon for  lhe effclo east.

We  have seen the judge lake his liquor;  and he does il in a judicial aud appreciative way. Something slow to be  sure, but effective.

The people of Kamloops require no  lecture on loyalty from tbo Sentinel  or any other source. They are loyal  to tlieir Queen and country and devoted to British institutions. They  know what respect is due to the  Queen's representative and are prepared to show it at' ."ill times, but  when Mie Queen'" representative so  far forgets himself as to use high oflice  for political purposes, .and liecoine.' ns  it were, the ward heeler, as did Mr.  Mclnnes, then llie people are not to  blame if they absent themselves from  public Junctions which he i.s attending.
