The new discoveries  in   the C.moe  river district are. culling the  attention  of the outside public once more  to the  great, uiitier.il weal I h which lies awaiting the prospector north of  the  main  line of the C.P.R.    In this country the  principal   operations  hitherto  carried  on   are   located   from   .Rovolstoke   lo  Goldstream, about Co  niiias  north up  the Columbia.     At this  point  occurs  the famous district known as the Big  Bend, which was a little more than 30  years ago the scene*  of  the* Big Bend  stampede.      Here   froin   tin;   bed    of  ancient glacier, now  fov.ts'r.g a  series  of cupped  depressions   on   lbe mountains, known  as  Ground  Hog Basin,  rise  French creek,  lucCullougli"creek  anil Camp creek,   triliolaiies  of Gold-  stream.    Ifc  was-'on  Fro'.iih  and   McCullough creeks that in  "65  the  great  strikes   in   gold-hearing   gravel   wore  made     in   this   vicinity.     The. work  continued    in     the.     crude    methods  available, in   that   rei'.ir.'i.c-   region   in  those   days.     Enonr.O'.is  remits were  obtained until  tha   work  becamo.* too  expensive anil in '07 the mini'.- drifted  off   to   the   still   more ��������� valuable   and  extensive placer grounds  of Williams  and'   tightriitig* creedis   in ' Cariboo.*  Olher creeks  in   the  district, such  as  Camp   creek.    Eight  Mile  creek  and  Ton Mile creek,  were also   worked   to  some extent, but owing to tlie greater  depth to bedrock not iiiucli w.is  done,  though good results were obtnini'il  on  these* creeks also wherever the* gravels  could be woiked   liv  ordinary gronnd-  slnieitig.    It is estimated Mint, livo and  three millions in gold were laken  out  o.liieBig  Bend  from  'G5  lo  '1)7.  the.  years   ed' tbe stampede.     Since  then  nothing was done until  the  G.P.   railroad was built  through   the 'province  in '85.   when   11   few   miners   wont   in  from Ri'velstoke and  began   woik  on  Mi-erheaviorgiavi'l deposits nnd-ancietit-  creok beds in all cases obtaining  good  pay dirt.     But. the expenses of tunnelling wore  very  large  and  the  profits  siiinll.     In 1889 a company obtained   u  lease on the lower end of McCullough  creek and installed an hydraulic plant.  Il was not very efficient or com pet "~nll.v  bandied  and  only. 500   feet,   of   their  ground on one  bed -of the  crook   was  gone over in the Hist year, in  spile of  all which their returns are stated  lo  have*   been     Siil'.OOO.    The     following  spring a slide covered tlieir plant, and  owing to a lack of funds and   internal  dissensions in lhe t.'iiiipniiy,   the  le-ase  lay   iinworki'd   and     dually     lapsed.  Not hing   more   wns   in   the   way   of  hydraiilieking   until    two   years   ago  when two Chicago companies acquired  several lenses on  French  ground  and  shipped a very extensive plant to woik  Iheir   claims   conjointly.     -Last   y.*.'i*'  this plant,  was  installed  late  in  July  under        California 11       inairigesnon!.  Though lhey comnienfcd so late in the  year, and owing I o various can*V-*s. only  worked over a, small area of ground,  and that amongst, the. timbers  of  old  workings     it,     is  claimed   t Iiut   lhey  cleaned up $iS,0<_0.    Both   horo nml on  McCullough creek the  gold   found   on  bedrock and  in  the  lower  gravels   is  coarse; frequent tests  of the  tailings  failing to show any fine gold.  Besides these leases there* is a large  area of placei'deposits in this district  suitable foi hydraulic working. On  French creek, above the Consolatiem,  a claim which will be found described  further on, tliere are. four edaims which  could be worked by giants. ' These  claims have similar c-haracl eristics to  the Consolation and should lie of equal  value," which as will'be seen in tlie  description of that claim is considerable. On Camp creek airain are  several leases. This creek hni only a  ��������� snow supply of water and the time of  working would be short, but there is  some ground near the head v. liich,  even in the few months available,  would p'iy well. Here at least one  ancient glacial bed occurs about 11  mile's in length, and thosurface returns  at, this point are very promising. On  Eight. Mile creek there, is large amount  of valuable ground. Bedrock is everywhere deep. Four ancient beds of this  creek are indicated about throe, inilt~s  from its mouth, two of whiih are  glacial and two formed by the diversion of the creek to higher levels by  slides. This slide matter is mostly  formed of old glacial deposits carried  down from the mountains above arid  will yield about 25c. to the cubic yard.  A few .claims were worked on the  lower part of this creek in 'GG, but the  bedrock was too deep for the methods  then available to render them paying  propositions.  Above the French Creek Co.'s  ground on French creek, the "Consolation," a creek claim has now been  worked for the past six years by  means of drifts and shafts with good  results, bedrock gravels yielding on an  average ������2.50 per yard. The gold is  very coarse; nuggets of a value of from  $50 to !?75 having occurred. The total  amount of gold taken out since this  claim bas been worked in 1892 is $29.-  (XX). The company has now I wo  working shafts, SO foet deep with  water "power hoist..and 1.G0O feet of  tunneling, all thoroughly timbered.  Tho creek channel I hrongb their  irround on bedrock .averages 100 foot  in width from r'un to rim.  Throughout the Ground Hog Basin  dislrict the formation is Hie samo:  Mic.icious and schistose slates, quart: ���������  ites and shales, carrying pyrites and  magnet oid iron ores and large quantities of oxides. The rooks are nieta-  mnrphiir and lie almost horizon cnl.  The glacier in its downward progress  i/round up the rocks, which formed ils  bed, and the waters flowing from the  melting mass, running round and under tbein, fui tber tore awav tbe formation, forming the-gulch'o:, and valleys through which the. present creeks  .run. and,carried down with them the  gravels" and inuil containing the,gold.  Throughout tbe ilistrict tbe bedrock  values are probably about the same,  owing to the central origin c:f lbe  gold, which it carries:. The. surface  gravels nn the benches and th'e higher  lying, earliest glacial deposits give the  same values in every case. Almost  anywhere the sui face dirt yields fiom  2 to -1 colors per pan, making an average of from' 15 to 25 cents per cubic-  yard.  The creeks, which head in Ground  Hog Basin, empty into Golds!ream, a  tributary of llu* Columbia. This creek  is an exceedingly difficult, one for men  without capital lo handle, owing to  llie very high stage of water prevailing in it froin the middle of May to  Sept em her, which renders tin* tnn-  .sli_.iitMo_ti_____o_L-w]ug .dams, and .flumes,  THE CITY COUNCIL.  mi ���������  30 ro,  C.

The council adjourned.  without suflicient capital to push the  work through, a very precarious  undertaking.

"When a  ran sees tbe Arkansas sheriff coming  down the street wilh a warrant sticking out ol his picket, all he has lo do  to escape arrest is to are������s tlie roael  into Texas. Four years ago lhe  citizens of this model burjr turned a  , negro at the stake, as they *������ui*neil  iia.riyi-.-i in London : centuries n<ro.  The negro, a man named Jtd.

A Talk on Advertising  An exchange'   prints   lbe   following  poinled remarks on wrong advertising  ideas:  " A great ninny people  go   into   ad-  ve.rlising   wilh    wrong   ideas.

There   are   others   who   say:  '���������'Oh.   yes.   advertising    iindouhlodiy  p-iys such   a  one   b.'cause   be   u.-e_-   a  space "  TIME FOR A MOVE.  Every effort possible should be made  by the people of Revelstoke to establish eoniniunieatioii with tho mouth  of Canoe river. At present the trail  from here norlh only runs as far as  Goldslie.ini, leaving a gap of forty  inile... This interval, as far as Tub  jlll'UALD can make out, presents no  obstacles to the easy ronslriiclioti of a.  trail, and it. is ncce.-iiiry to tbo prospects of lhis place that il. should be  built without further delay. With  lbe absurdly iiiad"cpin(e piovision of  $l.*i,(>lK! Hindi' I'or lhis riding it is going  lo be a hard mutter to apply any of  llii.- Mini for tin* purpose. There is,  however, a nioelest little item, blushing among the estimates, which appropriates an amount, of !j'2,0()0 I'or  another bridge! across Fish Creek.  This bridge, eoiinecis I hi* end of lbe  Fish Creek waggon road, when finished, with the townsite on the south  side marked on Cory Menhenick's map  in reel. In tbe opinion of most of the  miners and prospectors inlerestad on  that siele of Fish Creek this bridge is  not only unnecessary, but will entail  a positive* waste of money. Their interests, tbey say, would be best served  by clevoling this appropriation of $2,-  000 to widening and completing lbe  trail on the south side of Fish Cieek  from Thomson's Landing to Pool  Creek, which would give a shorter ami  easier means of access to Iheir claims,  and one which only in one place,about  10 feet wide, is in any danger from  slides. In this way tlio money for fixing up the waggon road on the north  side and ex lending it to meet the proposed bridge, an estimated amount of  from $2,000 to $3,000. wliich will have  to come out of the genera! appropriation, will be saved and might be applied on the trail from Coldstream to  Canoe River. This appears to Tin*:  IIerat.d lo present a feasible method  of pro vidi ngnt all even Is part of the nec-  essuy Sinn, and llipgovernniont might  perhaps be induced to make up llie  balance by order-in council. However.  Tins Herald only puis this idea forward as a possible way out of the difficulty. The trail has got. to be built  somehow, and if our local member and  tin* government can figure on any  olher method of raising the money to  builel it. this place will be quite content.  It is for the benefit of the whole  province', and not only fur the advantage of Revelstoke, tbat this Canoe  Rivet-dislrict should lie speedily opened up. lt, is described as a valley  second to none in British Columbia, of  wide extent, purl I v open meadows  and partly timber, and admirably adapted for cattle raising and agriculture.
