Stampeding from Edmonton  The R"kvi-:lstoki~ Hkrald ment ions  that there are reports raging around  Golelen, B.C., of ;t stampede fiom  Edmonton to the sceni*. cf the new  placer strike near Tete Jaime Cache*.  The Herald (hem goes on to state  that the idea of largo puck trains  leaving Edmonton now for llie Cache,  as stated in the Free Press, is absurd,  "as the middle of April i.s tho earliest  that pack trains ever start from Edmonton for the west, as there is no  feed ��������� until then." The Hkrald is  slightly in error. It is a remarkable  fact that pack trains follow the Jasper  trail all through the winter and the  snow is seldom so deep that pack  animals are unable to paw their  living. The Jackson-McLaughlin party-  left Edmonton in Novembeir. Howard  Rosling's train of fifty, horses lel't the  first week in March and three prospectors left the week following with  eighteen horses. Others will follow as  soon as they can outfit and none of  them anticipate diUiculty on account  of their early start, in fact their 'iim is  to get through before the snow goes  and the ice leaves the rivers.���������Edmonton Bulletin.  It is reported that J. J.

Speaking of the Lardeau district  generally Aid. Beer told the Nelson  Miner that he expected to see great  activity in the properties there this  season. Heretofore the owners of  Lardean claims stood in the way of  its advancement on account of the  prohibitive prices lhey asked foi'  their properties. There'iiro signs now  that it will be worked at a more  businesslike basis than heretofore  which will encourage a large amount  of capital to go in. There is no doubt  about the district being exceptionally  rich and when the weather.permits  active work will start on a great many  claims. There* are several good companies interested in properties there  and the showings thus far have been  sufficient to encourage them to push  on the work. The (good prospect of  the earlj~ building of a railroad  through the richest mining rwgion has  greatly stimulated development, work.  This menus considerable to Nelson as  this city will be the supply point for  the southern part of the district and  alsofor the camps as far north as the  enterprise of Nelson merchants can  make itself felt.  The most immediate want of the  region is the extension of.the waggon  ro.id up die north fork of the Lardeau  river not less than six miles. This  would give shipping facilities for 20  good properties and .be-of immense,  benelit to the district. It* would be  easily constructed and would not be  an 'expensive piece of wen k.   .  While he wiis at his property, men  were put to work on the adjoining  ciaim, ths Silver Queen. Work will  also shortly commence on tho Black  Diamond, Nettie L, Liltle Robert,  Union Jack, Rob Roy and others,- J.  W. Westfall. of Rossland, was in the  country wilhiYfr. Beer. His firm is  interested in several properties upon  which development will be pushed as  soon as tbe season permits. The Old  Cold Quartz and Placer Mining Co.,  and the Primrose Gold Mining Co.  -have���������done���������considerable-work.-*- On-  each property a working tunnel is now  being driven and both,have considerable ore on the dm 11 p. A shaft is  being sunk and drifting continued on  the Nettie L, under tlie.supi. .vision of  D. ,T. Cameron.. Tiie receul, strike on  this property has caused quite an  excitement in the country and brought  hosts of congratulations to Mr. Pool,  who is largely interested and ,who is  one of the most popular mining men  in the district. , The St. Elmo, owned  by Hugh McPherson,. is one of the  most promising claims and uctivu  work is expected to commence in a  fow days. While tliero Mr. Beer  heard that several valuable chums had  changed hands and ii. each case work  will be commenced as soon as the.  snow admits. The Bad Shot, on  Gaynor creek, owned by Messrs.  Johnston & Campbell, will be largely  developed and considerable money  will be spent on it this spring. This  property should become a shipper in  the near future. 111 fact there should  be not less than leu shippers in the  district this season.  The probability of the C.P.R. building up Fish creek as far as Pool creek  will result in a large amount of work  being dime there. Already plans aie  completed to put a large number of  men to work early in May.  The Mohawk is one of the piomising  claims there. The Towser, owned hy  Messrs. Ferguson and Knowles, aeljoining the Silver Cup, will have considerable work elone at it with the  probability of its being one of the be.-<t  properties and largest shippers ir. the  district.-  In conclusion Aid. Beer said that he  had everv* confidence in the district  proving one of the richest in the  province and that this season would  see it make great progress.  Easter Monday Dinner at Golden.

PLACER COLD  Expert Theory as to How the Deposits  are Formed  It is the general belief among prospectors and others that where rich  placer ground is found that above and  in tbe near vicinity there must be rich  lodes. This conclusion is erroneous,;  Fays B. F. Gilttier, in Ores and Metals,  as we shall see from observed facts.  To say that no plarer of gold is derived  from lodes carrying gold would not be  the exact fact. From observation and  experience it has been demonstrated  that where the richest placers exist  that near by the least number of gold  mines have been, found. The reason  must, be ti prime condition in which,  and on account of which, gold   occurs.  Now, the source 011 prime condition  of gold must be the first consideration,  and .we must also -be.able to'.compie-  liend the cause of the tiansformation  ftom the primary to the secondary,  gold in placers. The greater part of  the auriferous sands found throughout  the world are black or red ferrugiiieous  colors, thus showing that'iron in some  form must be the active element in the  tiansformation. Now, let. ns see in  what form iron exhibits itself in the  primary rock from which the gold is  derived. Pyrites accompanies gold in  most all of the original in whicli gold  is found; these pyrites are acted upon  by the oxygen in the water and ail-.  Tbe waler carries the gold down in the  lower level in solution until it comes  in contact by its flow with something  .which most cause a redisposition of  the gold in the gulch or valley below.  The chemical conditions  must be ex  actly light to cause the gold solution,  and again, must be right for the second  deposition, which makes the jilacpr  gold.  It is evident that in America nearly  .ill placei* grounds curv 11l.uk p:o-  to;;id*i of iron. 'Now, where did this  black piotoxide of iron come fiom. as  this lonn of iron is only secondary and  the sulphides of iron are the primary  condition. Let us see what causes  this chemical change.    ,  Dr. Emmons and other eminent  chemists have solved this problem by  t'xperimentation. They dissolve the  gold into a lerchloi-ide and this solution is converted into gold again by  lir. t dropping a cube of pyrite into the  solution anil then by placing some  chips of wood, dried grass and leaves  into this .solution, which causes the  gold to precipitate onto the cubp,  thereby causing it to be made a veritable nugget. Tbe black protoxide  which encases tbe grains which are  frequently found in the auriferous  gravel and sands, is bnt the excess of  sulphur resulting from this chemical  change. The general 1 uie to be followed is this, that the finding of great  placers is no evidence of rich lodes,  but where rich placer gold is found it  is evident only that the country from  which the golel is derived is evenly im-  piegtiated throughout, exposing a  large surface area upon which the  water and air have the opportunity to  act. Also, where this last named condition exists is also good evidence that  the source from which the golel is derived is tbe center of the greatest disturbance. And while this eternal  force was being exerted on the earth's  crust it fractured the whole mountain  into an infinitesimal number of crevices into which the gold was ejected.  CP.R, LARDEAU BRANCH  F. T. Brewster has resigned his seat  on the council of the board of trade.  WILL BE PUSHED THROUGH  WITH ALL SPEED  TO HEAD OFF CREAT NORTHERN  Tho Engineers Started the Survey from  Argenta ou Tuesday���������The Work Will-  Commence from the Southern End of  the Road���������The Great Northern Plans,  of Extension of the Nelson & Bed-  lington .Through Kootenay North.���������*  A Race for North Kootenay Trade  Speaking of the proposed C.P.R./  extension through the Lardeau, the*  Xolson Miner of Tuesday Inst snys:  Every indication points to the early  commencement of the work froin a  point near Argenta, at tlie head of-  Kootenay Lake, which will make'  Nelson the direct source of supply forthe large gangs of men that will  necessarily be engaged.  Monday afternoon a  party  of etigi-^  neers in the employ of the C.P.R.  left-  for Argenta  and   will   commence   at*  once to Iny   out   the_ line   fiom   that  point.    The party was composed of A.- ���������  E. Doueet,  G. II. Gordon,  G. L. L,uv,'.*  P. C. Grant and Gordon Grant.   These'   .  gentlemen  have  been   for some  time,'  working on the line out.  from. Arrowhead but received news   thut brought,-  -  them off post haste to   Nelson   and  on   ���������  through to the head of  the Kootenay -  Lake.      They   did    not   stay, 'here   ft -  moment longer than   they   icni'd   help*  a. tlieir older., wei e lo  push   i.tiy.viih-'  out delay.     The   reason   for   nil  .this  haste could not   be' learned   from   the'  engineers, who had nothing to say  of  their movements, but  when  two   and - ���������  two are  put   togelner   the   reason   is  easily figuied out."  At the present time engineers of the  Great  Northern   are   locating   a  line ���������  into   the   Lardemi ' anel    Trout   Lake ;  districts   to   tap   that    rich     mining '-  region.    It is "pretty  well   understood's  that this is a scheme   of-Mr.   Hill   to  extend the Nelson & Bedlington   road ���������  up the east side of Kootenay  Lake  to *'  ultimately connect, with .1   line  in.the*-  Trout Lake district. -  The C.P.R. does I  not view the intrusion with favor and."  has decided to offset it  by losing no '  time  in   building   into    the country"  itself.    Jlr. Hill has  shown   himself so _��������� .  active that the C.P.R.   will   lose   no,  more time in checkmating him.  As the CP.R. first  intended  to  get  to work,   the   road.would turn  from -  Arrowhead     up   Fish" River,   thence  -  southerly   to  Trout  Lake,   along   the   -  west, side of that lake and skirting the   .  Latdeau river to a point near Argenta,  on   Kootenny   lake.      Now   the   program me-^is_rovi'i-sed~and��������� work- will-1-^  commence, from   the   Argenta    end. ~  The   engineers    will  get  tn  work  at ���������  once and it  will  probably  be  only  a -  short time before an   annutiilcemetit is  made and actual work of construction  commences.   When the line is finally -  completed lo Arrowhead  it  will   provide  a   much   shorter connection   be-  =-  t.ween Nelson and the main line of the   ���������  C.P.R.   nnd make  only   one   change  necessary    between    Revelstoke and  heie. n  Tiie, pioposed line of lhe Great  Northern runs from Argenta, along  the west side of Duncan lake and  Duncan river, into tin; Troiis Lake  district. The proposed terminus is  not know 11. the line would undoubtedly i-iiti far enough north to tup a  large number of mines.  Both roads now sc-i'in to  be  ont for  the business the rirh  Lardeaii-Diincan   -  and Trout Lake districts have to offer  anel in the scramble the eoniitry  will  benefit greatly."  To cover the field use the columns of  the Herald. Its rates are higher  than other mediums, but the service  rendered is better.  Special Edition of Kootenay Mining  Standard.  D. It.

As Nicholas Flood Davin in debate is  aivays nn interesting personality on  account of his scathing gibes and  shafts of satire, condemnatory of the  policy of the present government, we  need offer no apology for reproducing  the main portion of ihe brilliant speech  delivered by him some clays ago in the  hmise. Mr. Davin commenced by  chuffing the milliliter of trade uud commerce (Sir Richard CltiYlwright). lie  denounced the plebiscite us a sham  ond a fraud, and said that llio government had wasted u quarter eif u million dolhirn of tin: people's inunoy. Tho  plebiscite; wns unknown lo the constitution of flrout Jlrltuln, nnd lie did not  think It wan any Impnivcmenl lo the  constitution of Canada. The money  which" hnd been wauled on It could  have been much bolter employed  lirigatlon work in the North  where largo areas of  v.ere  lying wasl  The Groat Slump Dictator.  Referring to penny postage, he said  the'postmaster general would go down  to history as the great stamp dictator,  the postmaster general who was perpetually issuing new stamps only lo  Withdraw them, and had at last managed lo issue a "vaster" stamp thai  had beon. (Laughter). He ridiculed  the mosgrencss of the bill of fare  provided by lho government as outlined in the speech from lho throne,  scored the government for its record  cf broken promises, and snid that one  most essential thing under our constitution was thai the people* should  have confidences in the promises of  the 'government. In this country we  had presented io us the extraordinary  spectacle of men gelling into power  on a scries of pledges, every onc of  them whicli had been broken, and  then Uiriiing round and laughing al  the people who had trusted them.  'Applause).  totallers go, luiinely, to partake of the  Roman punch In the middle of the  dinner." (Laughter). Mr. Davin  continued speaking up lo G o'clock in  general condemnation of the policy of  thc government.  THE ATHABASCA TUKATY  CHURCH DIRECTORY.

The pleasure steamer  Stella ran on the dangerous Casquel  Rocks near the island uf Alderney In  a fog, and before all those on board  could be taken off In life boats the  lcilers exploded and lhe boat went  down 10 minutes after striking the  rocks. The- suction from the sinking  steamer caused the loss of many lives  li the smaller hunts. The Stella,  wliich belongs to the London and  Southwestern Railway Co. left Southampton Wednesday, conveying the  (list excursion of the season to the  Channel Island. There were aboul  l-'S passengers on board and the crew  numbered ������������������- men. The weather was  ffffgy, but all well! well tinlil Thursday afternoon whon the fog became  most dense. At 1 o'clock tlio Caseiuet  Recks suddenly loomed up through tho  fog bank and tho steamer almost immediately afterwards struck amid-  f-hin. The last tiling the survivors  saw was the figure ot the captain of  lho Siella standing calmly on lho  bridge of his ship and giving his last  orders. Tho brave captain perished  with his vessel. Owing to the suction  c.'.used by, the sinking steamer being  very great the people on board were  trapped and mostly all perished. Tho  steamer Honfleur returned yesterday,  and after having made the circle of  Ihe Casquel Rocks she picked up lwo  hoeus. containing women's clothing,  money, jewelry, and an opera glass  case, the last had evidently been used  in bailing. Many most pathetic incidents are reported. In several casos  men lifted Iheir wives and children  Into boats and then perished thorn  selves in their presence. One wife,  uho was bereaved, has lost her reason.  A large number of the survivors aro  left without any clothing, only having  a few blankets.
