The-inne firm have also undertaken  lhe contract of hauling' the Beatrice  ore from the end of the. rawhide trail  at Goat river, IJ miles above Feiguson.  (.0 the Landing. The first load camo  in on the 21st. This shipment consists  of 120 tons which is already sacked. A  force of men have gone up to the mine  to sack as much more as can possibly  be rnwhided out before the snow commences to go. Mr. Beers, the owner  of the Beatrice, came in on (he lilth to  push matters to the fullest extent, the  consequence is' that every cayuse  around the Landing is now hauling a  rawhide. -'iBilly Johnston went out on  the 22nd to assist Mr. Beaton who has  the rawhiding of the ore.  The Nettie L is now shipping ore  with Billy Glen, Barney and an outfit  on the rawhide trail and thoy are all  rushing things., Andy Denny is  hauling the ore from end of trail at  Ferguson to the Landing. He has  already brought in several tons of ore.  Mr. Gamble. CIS., came ih on the  22nd to look over and report on roads  and trails up Fish Creek and it is to  be hoped the piece of trail between the  crossings and on the soulli side of Fish  creek (that was commenced nnd almost completed last summer, will be  finished before any more money is  spent on that so-called waggon road  that never yet bad a waggon over it.

DIAMOND JJORE DRILL  A Powerful Pioneer in  Opening up the  Mineral Resources of a Country  Crnnbiook lleiald :���������The first diamond core drill is about to be introduced into Lhis countiy by Mr. A. E.  Walts, or Palmers Bar, who owns a  laige nuinber ol properties in the immediate vicinity. Tt is a fact not  generally known that the valley from  Cranbriuik to Palmers Bar is thickly  studded wilh copper, gold and galena  properties as well as in many oilier  parts of the Kootenays, some of which  give high assays even on the surface,  but scarcely any development work  has been clone up lo the present, and  judging from surface indicationsi  which are pronounced by mining men  of extensive experience from Colorado,  Montana and Idaho to lie even superior to any in these states and these  districts in the near future become  busy uiining centres. But to obtain  rapidly a certain knowledge of thu  value of reefs or ledges nothing is to  be compared '.villi the diamond tore  drill, which will prove more in thirty  days than an outfit of men tunnelling  or sinking shafts could move in ten  years. It is a well known fact that  towns or hamlets surrounded with valuable mine.ral properties in tbe states  all ml ed to, for many year languished  and some were nearly deseited. because the pioneers and owners could  not alford to develope their claims.  But immediately afler the introduction of the diamond core drill which  made many sensational discoveries,  some of 'those hamlets became busy,  thriving cities and some of tbe lodes  discovered have paid millions in  dividends.  For the information of our readers  who do not know - what a diamond  drill is or what it can do, we may say  that it can pierce the mountains and  take the secret of what they contain  from their very hearts, and the more  solid the rock formation,' tbe inor?.  rapidly will it do its work. The drill  is so constructed that it can be taken  lo pieces and packed on the backs of  horses and carried and worked in  almost inaccessible places, where  water can be obtained as it can in  most places in'British Columbia. Tt  may be worked with dynamo and  motor, steam or horse power,' and  where neither of these powers are  available it can be worked by hand.  In a solid formation it can bore from 30  to 100 feet in nine hours according to  th'e power and speed applied. It not  only drills a bole but brings out intact a core which is evidence of  tbe nature of the rock or mineral  it encounters on its way. This result is attained by tbe -'bit" which is  fixed at the end of lbe pipe, being set  *wilimiauic7ncls. aiiel-as Fife ^liit" is"  rotated and fed by the machine  the - diamonds chip ''and . grind  away the rock in an annular bole,  leaving untouched -in the centre'a  cylindrical core.-Tiie "bit" passes down  over the score followed by the core,  followed by the0cori~ shell, cure barrel  and core lifter, which moves down  over tlie core and when the rods are  raised it grips tlie core, and as the  tods rise breaks it oil*. The drippings  made by the diamonds are forced  upwaiilsby pumping water through  the pipes, which also keeps .the diamonds cool. It may lie remarked that  diamonds of le*-s than one carat each  in weight are of no use for the work,  and a machine going at. full speed  keeps one man busy all thc time  re-i-cl ting the diamonds. The length  or depth these drills fan penelrale the  hardest rocks is almost unlimited.  Thus it can be understood what a potential power it must prove in thc  developinent of a mineral countiy or  in seai-i'liing for nil. coal-or* gas  deposits. We trust the enterprise will  meet Willi the success it deserves, unci  sue cei-s lo I be owners means pre-spent y  to lbe louiilrv. For particulars applv  to J. D. Sibbald, Revelstoke, B.C.

F. Btirmaslcr, who is interested  in t.he German'Mining & Milling Co.,  whose properties are situated on German mountain, on the east side of  Kootenay lake, returned yesterelay  from a six months' visit to Chicago.  Mr. But-master reports that a number  of Chicago companies were organized  Inst summer to operate iu the Klon-  dvke. but in nearly every case they  were unsuccessful, and it is not unlikely that during the coming summer  a number of Chirasro men will taken  look through^ Kootenay for investments in mining properties.

THE  GRIP  IS RAMPANT  Queen   Victoria's .Eightieth Year to be  Commemorated.  Landon,   March    G.--(Special)���������The  influenza   Is  very   much   in   evidence  again,  in'? many  towns  assuming tho  jiropprtion of a serious epidemic, and  c'.ainiing : victims   by   the    hundreda.  All   manners   of   people    havo    been  down   with   it   during   tho   last  fortnight, and now it has made a direc.'-.  attack on the treasury bench, the victim ! being   Mr., Chamberlain.    Fortunately  the   disease   has   on   this   occasion assumed?* mild though rather  painful  form.   .  The    victims   complain   of   severe  pains in the back and legs such as are  commonly   associated   with   lumbago,  and a persistent headache which never  loaves  them   till  the   attack  is   over.  The attacks  do  not    last    long, and  they do not seem to leave the sufferer  in  quito  so  prostrate  a condition  as  that which?usually followed influenza  ln its foimer visitations.   Still whilst  it laats the disease is sufficiently unpleasant.       This   last   decade   of   thc  century has witnessed  few more  important events that the recrudescence  of this hateful scouige.  The Queen's Eightieth Year  A suggestion which was ��������� privately  meditated here a month or two ago  is  lieing  revived���������that   is,   tho   com-  Imemoratlon of her majesty's SOth  year should be celebrated by a Teli-  giouB?service held contemporaneously  throughout tho empire.  It  is  certain  that,  even   if  nothing  officially is arranged to this end, a set  service  of  thanksgiving  for  the  cou-  tlnued   preservation   of   the  life   ami  hualth of the venerable monarch; held"  either  hi   St,.   Paul's  or  Westminster  Abbey,   . or     at   both,   would   attract  lare congregations;   and  if  the  mat-  tar be taken up at onco there is no  rei*8on  why  the    wholo    empire,  re-  gardlcBs ot creed, should not unite at  noon  upon , that  eventful?; Wednesday  In religious services in celebration   of  the event.  The Revolver Doomed  The doom of the revolver as a portion of tho equipment of British army  cfTicers is declared to be imminent,  and Its suppression by the continental  automatic pistol is only a matter; of  time. ��������� The sooner the present revol-  ;ycrJtejr?l_egated.to .the limbo ot jave  applications aro for as many as 15,000  and   20,000   shares.    All   this   testifies  ',.. Tne wide belief in the soundness of  lho show, not only in  tho province-,  but in Franca, Germany and   tho U.S.  demolition  of tho  Mahdl's  tomb  and  Tha  Mahdl's  Tomb  and  Body  It is  Interesting to know how  the  ! indignity  to his .remains  is regarded  i ii   Egypt.    A   cotcspondont   at   Caira  : says that  Lord   Kilchonor's action  is j  regarded as quite justifiable by most ���������  people,  for the following reasons:       |  The tomb had suffoi od so severely  from bonibardiuont that tho structuro  was unsafe; that although tho ISgypt-  ian    aud   Soudanese   troops  lind   not,  i embraced'' Mahdlsm,    many    believed j  I tliat tho Mahdl wns not burl:el there  j but   had   vanished   into   paradise,    &.  I notion  which  tho exhumation of t.ho  . body    dispelled,   showing    that    tho  ' Mahdl   was  an   ordinary   mortal   and  I au impostor:   and that had tho tomb  been allowed  to    remain,    It    would  eventually   have   bocomo    a     second  Mecca, a view which tho Khalifa, had  preached   for  years.   Another  corros-  respondent who  was  in   the  Soudan  war eavs that among *5~~population of  half Arab, half  Negro blood,  of half  Mahommedan,    half    heathen  Inclln-  alions.the   Mahdl's   tomb   was   something moro than a holy shrine���������it vas  also a great fetish.      The tomb and  bones of tho Mahdi  are  to the  Dervishes the greatest charm which they  possessed.   Tbey  thought  thai   these  very great fielshes would d<>-i.c.r   .-om  verv ereat fetishes would do fo.- them  whatever    the      densest  superstition |  demanded of It, and lhat _ o long as  It eto'od the unbeliever- wcuid never  triumph.

CANOE  RIVER  STRIKE  It is always llio unexpected that  bappeps. This is particularly I rue of  a mining country. None of us can  ever lell from day to day from what  quarter news of a fresh discovery will  arise. A case in point lias just arisen.  For a lung time it has been suspecled  that the alnios.1 unexplored district up  lho ("limit* river foiilaitied considerable  mineral deposits, but, nol hing very  di'linili' was ever anniiiiiici'd until lbe  news of the recent strike on SwiTt  Current crock came out, lt, is f]tillt*  likely Hint, tin* report will send a good  ninny pirn-pott ors into tliat country  I'riuii Alberta. Kvery year some of  Hie Filiiionloii placer mineis and  trade'!s pu_h their way into llu:  Yollowliead Pass seeking gold and  fur. The pass presents no great difficulties and these piemoeis frequently  reach the liend waters of Canoe Itiver.  Still it isii long trip as Edmonton is a  good two hundred miles from lhe  eastern slnpe of the mountains by' lhe  I ravelled route and thru Ihero is an-  otlu'i". hnnd red and fifty to reach  CiHine Kiver. The most expeditions  way to reach these' new gold Ileitis is  undoubtedly from some point in North  Kootenay on the main line oT (be C.  P.K. It is claimed that they can be  reached in from 8 to 10 days from  Coition '-flying light."  Now if Mr. McKay returns a favorable report, of this new strike itis quite  likely that lliere will bo a good number of prospectors going in up there  Ibis season. This outlining business  will mean n veiy considerable access  of trade for any point tit which it is  done. Itis well worth reaching out  for nud the town thai is the* jumping  oil' place on llu* main lino for the best  route at llie start nil' is tho town that  is going to get Hie cream of it. These  rushes arc short lived. If anything  can possibly be elone. to get the steamboat scheme of the Big Bend Trans-  portnl ion Co. pushed forward, tho  present, seems nn excellent lime for  doing it.  Monday.'
