HE SAYS SHE IS A GOOD ONE  The Development of the Mine Well  Devised and Carried Out.���������Operations  Have Reached a Stage at Which it  is Legitimate to Commence Stoping���������  The Nettie L a Regular Shipper.  Kevelstoke. li. C��������� .Inly Hist. I SOO.  til the directors-, great av estern  Minks. Limiteh :  Gentlemen :  Having at the request of your manager. AV. B. Pool, Ksq., visited and  carefully examined your property  known as tho Nettiu L mine, near  Ferguson. B. C, I have much pleasure,  in reporting on it as follows:  locality.  The mineral claim in question is  situated nearly on lhe summit oF a hill  some 3.000 Feet abovo and lo lhe east  nf the townsite of Ferguson, near the  north fork of the Lardeau river, and is  of the full size, 1,500 feet square.  VEIN.  The vein, where it outcrops on the  surface, is Fully 20 Feet wide, with well  defined walls, and consists of quart'/,  with much iron oxide (or carbonates),  iron pyrites, galena, grey copper ore.  It strikes, as is usual in Ihis district,  about N. AV. and S. E., and dips to the  east at a very high angle, being in fact  nearly vertical.  COUNTRY  ROCK.  The country rock appears to. be  schist, carrying much graphitu and  very frequently small quantities nT  iron pyrites; near the smfaco it is a  good deal" broken .-np and partially  decomposed ' through natural atmospheric agency.. ," '.'  , :WORK 1)0X13.  The work, done on the vein is extensive and thoroughly planned, indi-  cating.the character and course of the.  vein in a most utiinistakeable manner*;  At t.he outcrop, near the tip of the  hill, is a long, dee)) open cut with a 20  foot shaft. A-short-distance nwny  and a little lower down is-another  open cut some 20- feet-long- anil; a' 10  foot tunnel, all on the ledge, and all  showing the same iron-stained quartz,  with pyrites, galena and it little zinc.  This preliminary work having sufficiently indicated the direction, of the  vein, your manager decided on driving  a tunnel to tap the ledge some 100 feet  below lhe surface, and this tunnel (No.  1 lunnel) caught, lhe ledge , as '.-was  expected alter being driven about 100  Feet, proving it lo be, at Lhat depth.  Fully 30 feet wide and still carrying  the same varieties of mineral,0" but, of  course, with rather less oxidised matter. It Jivas noticed, even at this  depth, that the vein was rather shaken  npand broken lhrough undoubtedly  still in place.  NO. 1 TUJtNEL.  Drifts have been run on thc vein  about 75 feet each way, and in addition  there are two crosscuts and a 25 foot  winze; but at the time of my visit tliis  was full of water. This tunnel and  the other work connected with it  haviiigst ill Fiirtherconclusively proved  tho-trond.of tho_v(������in,  your  manager  and branches oft' about at right angles  lo lhe main vein. Ic carries similar  values nnd will probably bo found to  extend a considerable distance. Just  at llie .junction of this spur with the  main vein a largo body of rich oro has  been discoveied: no uncommon circumstance iu mining. Considering  this fact, and lhat No. 2 tunnel is so  far advanced, it may safely be left to  the manager's discretion to extract if  lielliinksproper.il certain amount of  ore from lime to time from such  points in the tunnel (No. 1) as may  seem prudent, without oil her robbing  the mine or endangering the men  employed, but. it would bu against the  principles of good inining to have  done so any sooner. Money, of course,  must be expended, and iu my opinion  it may safely be left to the manager  lo ship some of the best ore if occasion  requires.  ADVANTAGES  Ol" TUNNELS.  It is perhaps unnecessary to pointout  tliatanyminethatc.nl bo worked by  tunnels has enormous advantage over  one, that, can only be worked by sinking shafts, us no pumping or hoisting  gear is required and all can be done  by lhe action of gravity, bntjudgnierit  and sound common sense must be  exercised in the matter of deciding  where the tunnel should be located in  in order to obtain the most economical  results.  WOOD  AND  WATER.  There is abundance of first-class  timber on the property For all mining  purposes, as well as ample water supply of excellent quality, whicli is a  very great advantage'to a mine; the  limber in particular beingalmostall of  asize, commonly used for props, etc.,  though theie is plenty available, of  both larger and smaller dimensions if  needed.  TRAIL.  The present trail from Ferguson to  the claims needs considerable improvement, but it would not be an expensive matter, and the benefit, derived  from a quicker and safer road for the  packtriiin would niore than repay the  cost. It. might be built on a wagon  road grade with advantage, as then iu  the evont of a wagon road being constructed eventually, "part of the work  would bo'already done.  AERIAL TRAMWAY.  I think, however, that by far the  best way to transport ore down and  supplies up, is some forni^nf * the .endless wire, rope-way. Hallidie's system  is the least expensive to instill, though  many people prefer that known as  Bleichert's. <.  In conclusion, at the risk of seeming  slightly unprofessional, I desire to  express my entire satisfaction both  with the appearance of your property  and also with the way in whicli it has  been managed, and sincerely hope  that your greatest hopes may be realized, v,  A few. assays may not be out nf  place as showing the. value of the ore,  which of courso varies considerably,  but is all good:  THE CP.R. MOVE FIRST  COM  -RACT FOR THE A. & K. RY.

A'ictoria made a special trip up  lhu laki; from Selkirk Cily to bring  lbe news lhat the contract had been  let for the section of the A. fc K. railway between the Foot oF Trout lake  and tbe head oF Kootenay lake. Over  500 men are now engaged on the line  ind it is the expressed intention oF the  contractors to -'put on a man For every  stump"' between Selkirk City and  Lardo. The wages have been raised'  From $1.75 per clay to $2.50 and $3.00  and it is expected that tho road will  bu completed to the southern extremity of the lake by the 1st of October.  The section of road (between Selkirk-  Cily and Trout Lake Cily skirting the-  lake shore will also he let ar.d |it is-  stated emphatically that by next'  Christinas trains will_.be running into  Trout Lake City.  The work on a wagon road between  Selkirk  City  and  the  point at which*  the ferry ciosscs the  Duncan, will  be  commenced this   week,  the  intention-  of the.  contractors  being  lo bring all  their supplies for. lhe  15-milo  section"  from  the  foot of the lake south, over  the   Trout lake wagon   road  shipping'  by steamer from Trout Luke City.    If  no obstacles are encountered the lake-  will be  lowered, this, however, is  not',  certain at present,   Mr. Doucet saying-  that there might be some trouble, with-  tlie K. & S. people in   this connection;"  A wharf will be built, at Selkirk  City ���������  in the course of.the.next few days and"  every arrangement  made to take care-  of the supplies when they, are  floated'  down the lake from here!

NO. 2 TUNNEL.  This No. 2   tunnel   is   being driven  through black graphitic schist and" i.s  in about 250 feet, the manager expecting to tup the vein  in about anolher  250 feet.   But there seems to be 'blind  leads' on tho properly, that is to  say,  iiiir.etalized veins which dp not appear  ou the surface���������.-is  a vein   of quart'/,  carrying galena and grey copper  bad  just been  found at tho time   of my  visit, though itk thickness and  value  wliich may easily be very considerable  had not then been1 determined.  SYSTEM OV MANAGEMENT.  Before leaving tho subject of this  lower or No. 2 tunnel, I think  it  only  just to your  manager to say  that it  was most distinctly  necessary  work,  calculated to put the mine on  a  paying basis with   the least possible expenditure of time and  money,  us  it  will give you a  body of ore  fully 500  feet to the surface to work upon when  it strikes the vein, and while of comse  drifting will be  carried  on  simultaneously with stoping,  yet no   further  tunnelling will be needed for ,years to'  come.   Although   to those   not well  versed    in    systematic   mining (and  there are many of them, some holding  high positions in B. C.,) it might seem  that the ore found   in   No. 1 tunnel  should have been  extracted and sold  to   help   to    pay   expenses,   yet this  method   is  known   to   old   hands as  ���������' picking the eyes out of a mine," and  is most deservedly repudiated in  consequence by all sensible managers.

Ottawa is not the  kind of a city that even an M. P.  from way-back cares to live in for  fun. AVhen ho has drawn his earnings, or the balance thereof, the  beauties of life on Parliament hill  wil fade away und there will be glad  adieu to Ottawa.' It will bo a scattered fow that keep the wheels of  parliament grinding after August 1st.  That is exactly suited to the desires'  ot tho government. What legislation is left will be run through with  a speed that would nut the Impreial  Limited to shame. Now, that tliere  is nothing more coming for cm-rent  expenses, it seems hardly possible  that prorogation should be dclaved  beyond August 10th, and not a few  are willing to gamble on an earlier  date.

T-hich any one accustomed  water could have reached in a few  moments, even if fully dressed. 1 hose  who have learn to swim have learnt  also to avoid excitement when nlung '.*.  into water, and to take tho necessary  steps to avoid drowning. Loss of  presence cf mind when throwu into  d������p water mc-ajis Iosh of life, wheras  on������ who cannot swim who retains his  seft possession has a good chance of  being rescued. At somo English  schools the boys aro taught not only  how to swim, but how to rescue themselves from the risk of drowning when  accidentally plunged into the water  while dressed. A certain number are  taken every week to the bathing  place and a prize is offered to the boy  who, when dressed, jumps into deep  water and gets out without help. Any  one who has never seen or joined in  such sports, would be surprised at  what can be done in waier with ini-  puniiy by a person who keeps cool l  and knows what to do^to keep his j  head Sn tlie air.

From Fort Frances westerly  to the mouth of Rainy river, 70  miles, at $4,000 per mile.  An entirely new departure has  been made by the government In tho  rating of theBe subsidies. Take in  thc first instance the Rainy River  '.railway, which will some day form a  link of the great transcontinental  railway competing with the Canadian  Tactile and it will be seen that provision is made that it cannot amalgamate with tho Canadian Paciflc.Tho  independence of this road Is pro-  served as far as it Is possible to do  so.  All roads for which subsidies are  given must grant running powers to  all other railroads. Provision is  made to this effect. In respect to  rates nnd tolls a now clause In addition to the provision which already  exists In the Railway Act has been  provided making it imperative that  inese shall bo approved and controlled by thc government. There is  another Important feature in thc resolution that is that all roads receiving public aid snail be bound to  perform work for the government to  thc amount of the interest at three  per cent on tbe total subsidy voted.  These roads must enter into a contract with the government to do  this.  ..���������mj em  it ftt ,������. p>. f,  1,3'jo  Directors:  II. S. Howlano    Prehtdcni  '(.. K.

AVe have something new just now in two detectives  quarrelling over a dispute as to which  of them sneaked inlo a private bouse  in Montreal and stole a letter therefrom. When Senor Curranza, a  Spanish gentleman, was visiting that  city last year ho was placed under the  espionage of American detectives.  One of them swears that he clmbed up  a ireo on the opposite side of the  street to lhe Senor's lodging and bv  , ���������   . the aid   of an opora glass  be saw  a  will  a surely      drown.

Of course, as a  recent event shows, the most expert  swimmer may be drowned by being  temporarily disabled by cramp, but  such an exception only emphasizes tho  rule, tor a swimmer seized with cramp  Is often able to save himself, whereas  h non-swimmer thrown inlo quite  shallow  water,  if seized   with cramp,  the better.  HURON ELECTION  METHODS  One of the most interesting discoveries in connexion with the AVest  Huron election frauds, was made  during the examination by Mr.Powell,  of the house of commons committee.  Briefly      it      is      this: All      the  ballots cbsi for McLean, the Conservative candidate, aro initialed by the  returning officer in pencil,  'scribed as "a pair of patent double  [million magnifyin' gas microscopes of  'hextra. power." Without such an  optical marvel tho letter eould not  havo been seen. This letter the detective claims that he stole by sneaking into our visitor's room in his absence and carrying off his private  property. Another detoctivc declares  that his rival is lying, as he himself  stole tho letter in question. It Is  understood that the stolon letter was  sent to Washington, and from its contents it was concluded that as Senor  Fourteen ballots are initialed in ink. jCarranza was acting as a sm-' of and  the  These are all marked for.

These 14 are not only distinguished  by the fact that they aro initialed  with ink, but they are of a lighter  color, and much heavier paper than  the other 111  which were  for the government of Spain, be oticht  to be expelled from Canada and was  expelled accordingly. AVhat facts a  person living in Montreal could discover relating to the Americans  paper than which would be of use to Spain we  handled by ;faji   to  comprehend.      And.   how  anv  the returning officer. They have a ihonorable government could sanction  white edge while the others are black |a detective sneaking into a private  edged. They are also something ;house and stealing a leiter therefrom,  wider. Now these 14 ballots, which iwe aiso ui] to understand.

The suspicious ballots, though they differ  from the other used at same poll, appear io be exactly alike thoso used at  some other polls, suggesting that, some  one obtained      them      from      official  be foul with the stain caused by his  tampering with letters in the post  office. To settle the dispute it is  succested that both detectives be arraigned on a charge of felony. Their  claim to be guilty should bo accepted.  Both  of  them  should      be given  two  sources.

This change will  be effected to comply with tho recommendation of the Universal Postal union, which requests for the sake  of uniformity that ecrtain stamps  used by all countries in the union  be of the same color.  Stamps whicli will be of a uniform  color, according to the union's regulations, are the 1, 2 and 5c issue,  these being tho only denominations  most commonly used in the various  countries. The once cent is used  principally on printed matter, the  unit of rates between the countries  being I cent per two ounces. The  2 cent stamp is now the domestic let  ter rate in nearly all the countries,  and tho 5 cent stamp is the International letter rate, the unit being 5  cents per half ounce.

Montreal, July 2G��������� One of thc.ir.-~tt  important mining deals of recent dale  has been completed in this city. For  some timo it has been rumored tint  Messrs. Mann and Mackenzie wsro  about to float some of their heavy  mining Interests, and the first step in  this direction has been successfully  accomplished. The present deal involves the famous North Star silver  mine, near Fort Steele, B. C, and  five other properties of tho sane-  group, viz., tho Buckhorn, Droad-  naught, Maverick, Daffodil, and O. K.  These properties have been owned I'or  somo years by a syndicate composed  of Dan Mann, the woll known contractor; AVilliam Mackenzie, the Toronto street railway magnate; Sir  AA'illiam . A'an I-Iorne, R. B. Angns,  James Ross, H. S. Holt, Hon. A. A.  Thibaudeau and other prominent  Montrealers. As the result ot thc  present deal, a new company, to be  known as tho North Star Mlnmg  company has been organized with a  capital of $1,000,000, ot whicli $1,040,000  lias been allotted to the owners '.n  payment for the property, and 100,000  shares have been sot aside as trcasmy  slock, to provide for working capital,  etc. Of the treasury stock 200,000  shares havo been taken up by .Mc-  CunlK.-Tlykcrt & Co.. of the city, acting for a syndicate of prominent  Montreal and Toronto capitalists. I'he  directors of the newly organised company are ID. D. Mann, president: Hon.  A. A. Thlbaudenu. vice prcslde.it;  William Mackenzie. Toronto; II. 3.  Holt, Montreal, and C. L. l'ortcoiis.  secretary treasurer. The properties  owned by the company have been  steadily developed for some years, and  a largo quantity of ore was shipped to  American smelters by steamer, mil  owing to treacherous navigation, several of thc steamers were wrec.'-"! and  ii was decided to await the completion  of tho Canadian Pacific railway through  the Crow's Nest pass before making  any further shipments. Arrangements  have since been mndo with the Canadian Pacific to build a branch li-ie  from the mines to Cranbrook, and it  is expected that this branch will be  completed by September, when regular  shipments will be commenced and  monthly dividends paid. The properties have been examined ami reported upon by the leading mining experts of British Columbia. AA'illiam  Carlyle, in his official report as p:o-  vincial minerologist, speaks of i he  North Star as one of the largest do-  posits of silver and lead in thc province. Frank Robins, M. E., who  who visited the mine in June, repin'ts  that there are over 23,000 tons of ore  blocked out in the mine and oa tne  dump, ready for immediate shipment,  the net value of which will be  $521,035, after allowing for the co.il of  mining, freighting and smelting. The  directors of tho new company are of  opinion that tho treasury stock wi!!  more than provide all the funds necessary for tho equipment and development of the mine, and thore is sufficient ore ready for shipment ti pay  monthly dividends of one per cent a  month on the issued capital for mci'e  than three years. Active dcpclop-  ment work will be carried on.by the  new company in order to keep liir. n:e  reserves well ahead of the shipments.  Senator George A. Cox, of Toronto,  has taken up a block of tho stock and  other prominent Toronto . capitalists  are interested with him, while a number of leading Montrealers are also  in tho syndicate.  -  AVONT   HAVE   BELMONT  Newport, R.

(New England Farmer).  "The  ambition   to succeed  may  be  and always should be a laudable one.  It is the ambition of every young man  for himself and of every parent     for  hi6 child.. ��������� i-  Success has a different signification  to different minds. To one it represents a large account at the bankers,  to a third a high place in society, to a  fourth a title or an oflice, and to a  fifth the trumpet voice of fame. By  nine out of ten it is identified in some  way wth money getting. 'Now, while  many truly successful men have been  wealthy and while money as a means  to an end .it is a serious evil, and  whilo it is commendable in a young  man to resolve upon earning a competence he ought to keep ever in mind  the fact that it is possible for onc to  attain tbe highest degree of success  and yet live and die iu poverty, and  sometimes what the world calls failure, is in reality the truest success.  "Can a young mau succeed in farm-  iu_?__-Th __first point to be considered  is does he like it. For no one can  succeed in a business for which he  has a positive aversion. A man out  ot place may manage to get. a living,  but he works mechanically, he is constantly looking at his watch and  thinking of his salary. It matters  not so much what your vwork is if it  be honorable and you like it.  Farming is the destined occupation  of all men of birth, aud he who forsakes it for other pursuits must show  ubstantia! reasons for the departure  lo entitle him to encouragement. To  the voung man possessed of a fair  amount, of health, intelligence and  strength, and who bus no unmistakable inclination and aptitude for  some other calling no occupation  offers so sure and easy a patli to success as  agriculture.  "Dailv exercise in the open air, constant contact with the soil, a wholesome diet and peaceful surroundings  make the farmer's life a pre-eminent-  ]v healthy one. aud surely health is  one of the most important factors in  success.  "The time is soon coming���������if not  already here���������when the .farmers will  be the great middle class standing  between the few who are very rich  and the many who are poor.

He Thinks the Brunswick Property  Should be Operated.���������A Hotel Has  Been Built at Canbourn.���������A Vein of  Three Feet of Shipping Ore in Evening Star,  Professor RR. Blochberger returned  lust   night,   from   another   successful  uiining tour from the Lardeau district  inspecting his numerous properties on  which  Mr. L. B.  Beck,   former  mine  superintendent of lhe Great Western,  conducted the work with a small foicu  of men.     Mr. Bloclibi-rger  found   the  properties     in   first-class     condition,  shipping   ore   on   the   dump   und  in  sight, and brought down with  hiin 50  to 00   pounds   of   good   looking   ore,  which is shown in the  Miner window.  From the looks of this ore Mr.  Blochberger and his purl ncrs, Messrs.   Kims  Thompson, S. T. Lnngley. K.K. IYiser  and   Supremo Court Registrar Schn-  fleld, rerl.iinly must have a real  good  thing.    The property is situated in'llie  famous Pish Creek basin, on the  west  side of Lexington  mountain,  consisting of 2(10  acres,   with   three  well  defined veins running through   the  full  length of  the   properties.    The, same  veins have also been   traced  lhrough  the adjoining six properties owned by  Mr.   Beck   and   Mr.   Blochberger.    A  great deal  of   development   work   is  going on in this district,     Mr.  Bloch-  borger's properties are  about, a milo  away from the  coming Butte of the  Lardeau, the  town  of Cnnboiirn,  the  property  of  Hon.  Corey Menhenick.  which  place  the   two  surveyed   railways   are   striving   to    reach.     This  gentleman, one of Lai'dean's energetic  and enterprising pioneers, has built a  fine, large hotel and store and  several  houses, greatly to the benefit of uiining  men. who can now come and go in one  clay to i������ny mining  property  on  Pool  or   Fish  creek.    Another   year  more  and two  great  transcontinental  railways will connect the  town  of   Can-  liourn with the. cily  of Rossland  and  tons of ore will be sent  from  thereto  the Trail and Nelson smelters.  Mr. Blochberger visited the Brunswick property and speaks highly of it,  and is sorry he docs not have a single  vote, in the company, otherwise he  would work thu property somehow,  because bethinks it a shnine to let a  good property like the Brunswick  be idle.  He says that Mr. Twecdle struck a  fine copper ore vein on the Copper  Dollar, a few feet below the Brunswick and on the. same vein as the  Highland Mary above, and if the vein  does not go tn heaven or straight  down to the antipodes it will be found  in the Brunswick. The Brunswick, as  well as Air. Blochbcrger's properties,  are now the most handy for working  and shipping. Situate on the Fish  river, whicli is navigable, with plenty  of fine timber and water power for all  purposes, the ore. could be sent to  Canbouri: ferry, where the government u-.igon road starts for Comaplix  and Thomson's Landing, on the  northeast arm of Arrowhead lake.and  brought over this road on sleighs till  the railway is completed, and from  the binding on big barges which hold  H0U to 400 tons, to Trail, so that the  expense for shipping would be. vcry  lit.lle more per ton than from Rossland  to Trail. As Mr. Blochbcrger's surface assays of steel galena went over  350 per ton from a nine-inch vein the.  probabilities oE ore shipments from  Fish creek are more thnn likely. M.  K. K.
