RICH STRIKE OH THE NETTIE L  Which is Rapidly Developing Into  One  t'   of the Lardeau Cracker Jacks  XV. Holloway came up from the  Lardeau on Monday bringing a beautiful sample of ore fiom a new strike.  The ore is a line sleel galena, very rich  in gray cupper.

Just before reaching tlie  vein'they diovo through 7 feet of  beaiitifuriron eire and thiough 2} feet  of,carbonates. The hanging wall has  not yet been reached, bnt Mi*. Holloway, expects to strike it within the  jiiext'10 Jcet. On the sm fact* the  richest oi^e lies next to Ihe hanging  wall and it is expected when the  hanging wall is reached" that.

These gentlemen express themselves us delighted  with the appearance of this city fiom'  a business standpoint, but cannot  understand why the mining bushiest,  at least that portion of it which is  usually conducted on a paper basis, is  so sadly neglected.. In their opinion  the people< of * Michigan and Boston  know mine about the big Butte copper mines than do the people of Butte.  In their conversations with prominent  citizens not more than one in ten could  give any iiifntinalion whatever about  the mining companies, hob'even knowing,,what the capitalization of tbe  companies are. ) XVe all know theie is  a woeful lack of interest taker, by our  eitizensin the Bnttc mining companies-.  Immense fortunes ' could have been  made by a little judicious investment  in copper stocks, but instead our dti-  zens have in variably, sent their spaie  funds abroad in distant fields, where,  in ninny instances, it has been lost. It  must be veiy hniniliating to many of  theni now to look* over'the copper  stock quotations nnd note, the ptices  at which the Butte,companies are  selling for. The Boston and (Mon tana  that could have been bought for less  than .$100 a year or tvvo-ago is now  quoted 'around the $300 figure; the  Butte and Boston that went'begging  for.aboui .$3 about the same lime is  now hovering around $90. -The Parrot, fur" which lliere 'was no> sale at  less than one year*ago at* $10, is novv  quoted at about $43. The mifoftu-  nate Englishmen are to be pitied, also,  for they let iarge; blocks'of the Anaconda shares slip through their'-fingers  at less',than $23lvfour.or five months  ago".. Since then it has been-learned  that Messrs. 'Daly and Haggin quielly  took tliem eiver, which added' mater-  .iii.lIj-'tcVL.tlie'ir jilroady* l.irjje' lioldings.  Anaconda is now quoted 'at rovei;r$S0  per share.

' The price  of'copper' is firm' and' there is no  possible chance for it to drop from its  piesent high position.-'-The. supply  is not ec'iial to the demand, therefore  the position of copper is ;i healthy one.  ���������Western Mining World, Butte.

" Result or Challenges." and  also in an editorial in said newspaper  commencing vvith Ihe words: " The  Colonist says Mr. Sibbald can rest  content" etc., anil wl.ieh libel was  written iu the sense of imputing lhat  the John D. Sibbald was guilty nf  ceiiruption in the management of  public moneys, lhat he vvas an in-  capable and inelllcient administrator  and that he is a man vvith a blemished  reputation and without n character to  maintain."

TO LOWER TROUT LAKE  And   Run   the   New   Railway   on* the'  Exposed Beach  About   the   best   news   that' Trout'  Lake has heard for  some   time   was"  lh.'������t brought in by Capt.  Nils* Roman  on Tuesday last. . The captain had ������.et '  out for the  lower  country  when  ho  leceived a  couple of telegiams from  the;   head   engineer  of- the,party  of  surveyors who passed' tlirbughi Trout  Lake Inst fall on the preliminary line  of   the   proposed   branch   of  railway  from Airowhead to the head "of Kootenay, asking him for infeiriniition  as to'  whether he. could get his steamer, to'  the foot  of  the -lake.' "To'those';not  kuowing-.the . circumstances   there"  would appear to^be.nothing significant  in "these   telegiams," but    if is well,  known here thatTone "of the"plans~bf  the engineers*.vvas .follower   the  stir-'  face of Trout Lake feir some six feet, ���������  giving them an" opportunity'of using  the ground thus-exposed 'for'a'reiad- '  bed.    This means an enormous .saving.'  to the. railway corporation . as  it. was'  remaiked once by one in a po.-ition   to  form   a   reliable    estimate,   that  lhe "  entile load  from Thomson's Landing  Ui the head of Kootenny lake could be  built almost for the aniouiit.it would  take to make the cut around the rock*  bluff near Arrowhead,   on  the  nortli--*  east Ai ra.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY   22,  189fl.  of "St. Petersburg to a brilliant celebration of his daughter's birthday. Sho  Had just reached her eighteenth year.  Among the guests was a young physician. Dr. Thomas Bokowitz.  Marie Kobylinski was secretly in  love with the young physician. It vvas  a delightful surprise therefore, when  Dr. Bokowitz asked her for a "waltz.  To her astonishment, however, her  partner did not move from his sent  beside her when the waltz began. Instead be appeared fidgety anel nor-  vous. Finally he blurted out tbe extraordinary question:  "Arc there more spots on your body  like tho one on your cheek?"  As may be Imagined, the young  lady blushed crimson with embarrassment and resolved to go to her father  to tell him of the Insulting eiuostlon  of the doctor. Dr. Bokowitz, however, assured her that tlio q'ueBtloii  had only a professional motive, and  thc young lady finally acknowledged  that there were several spots on her  shoulders.  Dr. Bokowitz at once counselled her  not to remain another moment in tlio  ball room, but to retire to hor room  at once.  Dr. Bokowitz for fear ot shocking  the Bnron and bis daughter, did riot  nt once reveal the serious nature ot  the disease, but said that it was his  duty to act as he did. ���������  On the following day, Dr. Bokowitz  called with three colleagnes on the  Baron and his daughter. Tho physician's suspicions were corroborated  by their diagnosis. It "was found  that Miss Kobylinski had contracted  tbo dieiease during the summer at a  bathing resort in the eaetern _ pro-  vineee.  The young' lady is now undergoing  treatment in an isolated hospital.  -K-iM  blanked tract anel read every blaBted  word of it, or I'll ram it down, your  overlastin'ly condemned throat���������rlp-  pity-sizzledy blankity-blank you!

Fine old feller,  Whoop is, perfect gentleman, Is over  I seen one!"  RETURNED   KLONDIKERS  SUBDEN   DEATH  The sudden death of  Felix    Faure.  President of the French Republic, will  undoubtedly  cast  a  gloom   over   that  nation.  '   He was greatly  beloved  by  the'jjeoplo for his simple  democratic  ways  and  kind   heart,      Tbe  various  political  parties who keep Franco in  perpetual fermeni also regarded Faure  v.-ith  trust and  confidence.      He   was  essentially a    safe man.        Born    at  -Havre, of bumble birth, he spent his  young manhood- working a"t the trade  of tanner in his native town, in spite  of which humble origin he was recognized even by the exclusive aristocrats  of the Boulevard St.' Germain as a fine  typo of the French    grand    seigneur.  The occupancy' of the  palace  on  the  Champs Elysee   certainly' . does  ' nui  icem to' bring much luck or happiness  to the occupant., - It is a brilliant but  thankless office.     A French President  reigns for a time, then, like a candle,  gels snnSed out -*wben    the     nation  least expects.lt and is least prepared  for a sudden change..    Grevy, -whose  worst crime lay In having a dishonest  son-in-law, Dkniel Wilson, had to retire under a cloud with some precipitation.     CaBBlmlr���������Perier lasted about  a couple of months, throwing up the  great office in disgust, some say on  account of the Dreyfus scandal which  Eprouted liko a   fungus     during    his  short regime.  Carnot ran along pleasantly enough  for a few years,���������he was an aristocrat  of the old school and grandson of the  great Carnot of revolutionary days,���������  - but one day while driving with his  wife on the Hue de la Republique in  Lyons an Italian assassin stepped  from the crowd and burled a stiletto  In the president's heart.  Now  comes  Felix  Faure,   who   has  been steering    the   rickety    6hip _ of  slate   with   fine    judgment    through  squalls     and     storms     innumerable,  stricken down in the   prime    of    his  manhood by a stroke of apoplexy. Who  hi3 successor    will    be is a problem.  Premier  Dupuy will  hold  the    reins  until the Council sits at Versailles to  elect a new ruler.      It     is    unlikely  that  either the  Buonapartists  or Or-  ��������� leanlets  will  show tho  bad  taste  of  taking advantage of this sad event to  further -the interests ,o������ their respective dynasties.     The   French    public  would be quick to    resent    any   such  move.      The most eligible  candidate  for tho succession, and the man who  most likely will receive the majority  of Totes at Versailles, Is M. de Frey-  clnet.   He has figured inalmost every  cabinet since      Marshal    MacMahon's  lime, as head of the Foreign and War  Departments,   and  is    regarded    as a  strong, safe, conservative    statesman.  The emotional   French   place  reliance  in troublous times, on men of no emotion,  and  de  Freyclnei fills  this  requirement   to     a   dot.        Today    the  Champs Elysee will   be    black    with  people,  mournera  and  curiosity  seekers, bu; the feeling    of consternation  cnuaed    by the    news     of "le roi est  mon" wiirquickiy   give    way to the  hilarious excitement and expectancy���������  bo dear to the French heart���������of having something     new,     fresh .  novel,  another President.     Vive le roi, pre-  il'dent quandmem������.  AN   ACCIDENTAL   CHESTERFIELD  ""  X RUSSIAN ROMANCE  St Petersburg, February 13.���������At a  ball given by one of the loading members of the aristocracy it was discovered that the young lady in whoso  honor the ball was given was a sufferer from leprosy.  Th������ nam* of the young lady is Mario  Kobylinski,. Her father, the Baron  ^SUfUg^j; had    invited "tho world'  "You can' talk about the superiority  of eastern- courtesy over that of tho  'Rowdy West', as you people enjoy  callln' it," said Alkali Ike, apropos of  a gentle criticism dropped by the intellectual gentleman from New England who was touring Oklahoma;  '"but the east an' the west look at  s,ech from different standpoints.  You people's politeness run to forms  an' ceremonies, to the fashionable bow  an' the latest handshake���������the politeness of words and motions. The  courtesy of the west is- the politeness  of tbe heart, of respec and good wishes. 'One is a pure nugget, the other  a gold brick; yours is like sody water,  " pretty lookln' enough,1 but niithin'  bnt sweetened wind, after all���������ours  is like old whiskey, all thar, just what  it pretends to be, an' good all the  way down.  "The courtesy of the west never  ii quires as to the social standin'-'of  the other fellow,: ��������� it don't look at  the coat nor the connexions; it believes tbat a, man is a man an' a lady  is a lady, family or uo family; good  clothes or shabby.' All of which kinder reminds me of a little episode that  happened some time back com in! from  Frozen Man.  "I wa9 slttin' on th'e the box with  the driver, old' Whoop Slnddock, an'  we were slftin' along at Whoop's U9iial  clip, the four mules layin' right out  straight, an' th coach hlttin' few but  the high places. . Inside was a couple  of pale eastern sightseers, -a reel-nosed  drummer, * an'' a hatchet faced old  maid lady from Connecticut with  what you might call, ghastly little  ppit curls in front, of her ears an'  the intention of doin' missionary work  among us heathens out yero in the  benighted west." Directly, as vve was  slashin' along through the timber by  Woxahoochee creek we sorter sailed  over a stump about three feet high,  an' thero was a thump on the underside of the roof' of the coach, followed  bv remarks. Pretty soon tbe lady  stuck her head out of tho winder an'  called:  "'Driver!'  ���������''Mom?' says Whoop, pullin down  the mules.  " 'Do you uso profanity, driver?  asked the lady.  "'Yes, mom,'.says he, plenty polite,  ���������"anything I can do for you that-a-  way. Mom?' '  ���������" -Does'your~lriend_sweaT*��������� too"  " 'Yes, mom,' says he, handin' me  the lines an' gettin' down��������� 'lice is  right.handy in that line. What can  we do for you, mom, if it.- a fair  question?'  " 'Will you an' your friend ta-ke  these leaflets and read them?' says  she, handin' out a couple of little  papers.  " 'Sure thing, mom ?* says Whoop,  iakln' 'em. I haint no ellercutlonist.  but I'il do the best I can.

I did not moan for you to  read them to me,' says she 'I wish  you an' your friend to preserve those  tracts and read them at your leisure.'  "'Why, ahorely. mom!' says Whoop  lookin' ' mighty relieved. 'An', If  you'll exrii?e m _ for sayin' It, I'll own  right up that It's a boss on mo. think-  in' that you wanted me to read 'em  to you.     Call ir a joke, mom!'  "Certainly, driver!' says she.

Willard, ot Chicago,  passed through on his way to Great  Slave Lako hiBt week to Investigate  the recent sensational gold finds by  (lie Chicago contingent who outfitted  In Calgary tho first week in February  lasl year. Tho Hudson's Bay Store  of thlB city outfitted tbe party and  they pulled out from Edmonton with  li!i Hal sleds and four bob sleighs exactly a year ago yesterday. Thero  were 31 In the party and today they  are rich beyond tho dreams of avar-  cico. Tho titlo of this combination  was tlie Yukon Valloy Prospecting  and Mining Company, and their  leader was W. J. McLean, formerly a  prominent officer of the Hudson's Bay  Company. On the Snd of April they  reached Peace River Landing . Here  tbey went Into camp' until the 16th of  May, when, having in the meantime  built threo sturgeon head flat boats  of seven tons burden, they sailed down  the Peace for 700 miles. On June 5th  they found themselves floating on the  bosom of the Great .Slavo river. Here  Maclean, the guide, met,an old Indian  acquaintance, whom he had befrionded  in.-clays gone by. This grateful  Nltcheo confided, to Maclean that he  had seen shining cliffs that rose from  the waters of, the Great Slave Lako In  reefs and. precipices, -mottled with  gold! In proof of his story he'emptied his fire bag, filled with specimens  of auriferous quartz. The    Indian  cciilieled the location'of the ore beds.  An investigating! committoe of 'the  party, headed by'Maclean, lost'no timo  in verifying the truth of the Indian's  story. " Allowing for a natural ex-  iiggeration,"*it proved to be true' in  every detail. When they returned,  August 18, their canoes, were laden  with wonderful specimens or gold,  silver.'" galena and copper bearing  oies. ".Of these assayed, the copper  ore has yielded $38.29 to the' tonjsilver  (in galena) ?265.1G to the ton; and  golel,   $1,824.52  and   ?5,S91.60. , '.    .;.  Though the' existence ot'. gold" and  other _ precious minerals' at Great  Slave. Lake has long .been known ��������� io  the -Canadian government,' tho -value  of. the deposits has'-never- been.investigated.' :Liko all other big finds, the  present discovery, or, rather, Its re-  rcvealing, was duo almost wholly to  chance. The men from Illinois, however, lost no time iu embrncing their  opportunity and-00 claims have bean  locateel,from the low reefs - ou,, the  south'.west corner.of the lake to a cape  200 miles away at Us north east angle  and all except one, at the water's edge.  A* town site and timber limit' have also  been ^applied for in the region .'of' the  Lockhart and Hoar Froat rivers. Two  avenues of access offer fair facilities  for shipping tho ore from this new  Golconda. . Ono. down stream -via the  Mackenzie river to the sea to tidal  water, tho other up stream to "Athabasca Landing,' thence 100 miles  overland to Edmonton, on tho Can.i-  "dinn Pacific railway. Early "next  spring Mr. Maclean and the Chicago  contingent will speed north with rock  drills, crushers and pulverisers for  tho securing of their yellow inheritance. Meanwhile the band of happy  exiles at Fort Resolution is exploiting  further afield and canonizing the day  that overwhelmed it with disaster in  the Swan Mountains and introduced  as a oath finder, Ex-trader Maclean  nnd his Dog-Rib genii of the Great  Siave river.
