Copper Struck On  Chief Mountain.���������Gold Ore Exposed  on the Annie F. Group.���������A $7,000  Deal Closed for the Effie Group.���������  Another Big Ore Chute Struck on the  Silver Cup.  The Chief Mountain, 11 claim located  at, the head of Surprise Creek and  owned bv W. .1. Carroll, is tlie latest  strike.' On this property a copper  lead three feet, wide has .been discovered. Home of the samples from  the new strike run 60 per cent, copper  while the bulk of the lead contains ore  which, from present indications, will  easily dwarf ntiYthing in the copper  line yet discovered in the Kootenay.  Several samples of ore are cm exhibition in the ore cabinet at the Topic  oflice.  On the Annie F. group, located on  Tenderfoot, creek and owned by NV.  Phelnti and J. O. Lynch, the tunnel is  now in some 15 feet and exposes a  body of high grade gold ore. Several  assays have been made on the product  of this gioup and the returns range  froin $25 to $1)1 in gold to the ton.  Several extensions have been staked  on this lead which is said to show up  on the Canyon creek slope of the  mountain.  H. H. Johnstone has been authorized* to let the. contract for the 200 teet  of lunnel to be run on the main vein  of the Silver Belt. The object of* this  driving is to tap tho junction of this  lead with the various rich stringers  which appear to "dip towards it from  both sides. This contract will be completed hy the time the railway is ready  to bundle ore from Tront Lake City.  Anew strike has'been made near  tlv; American, on which four claims,  the Bonanza, Bottom Dollar, Nnnzy  Hanks and Morning Star have, been  staked. The leaircuntains about two  feet of an-iron ore from which it is  expected good returns will be obtained.  The owners of this group are Messrs.  Lindgren, M. Nelson, N. E. Lay and  J. N. Nelson. -'  '  A den.1 has practically been closed  whereby 3. Rutherford obtains a bond  for $7,000 on the Eflie'gruup, on .Cariboo creek. The terms of the bond are  $1500 cash iu three months. .20 -per  cent, in 00 days from date uf first payment and the balance on August-1st,  1000. T. R. Davey of Trout Lake is  acting for the vendors.  The work done on .the I. X. L.has  developed a vein containing-.from 18  to 22 inches .of , it carbonate- rue. A  tiinnel driven 15 feet on the solid vein  has exposed this showing. -This property located near the Virginia, at the  head of Eight, Mile creek, is owned by  Messrs, J. Johnston and MeCord.  George Windsor, this week brought  down some fine- samples of ore from  the Copper Queen, a claim located  about four mile������ from Trout Lake, lie  lias done a great deal of work on this  claim which has resulted in.exposing  a body of ore which runs 218.ounces in  silver.  Work on the Copper Queen, a claim  in the Hidden, .Treasure group, near  Haskins creek, has exposed some very  nice. ore. The tunnel, which is being  driven by Messrs. Mummery and Kin-  man, is now in 32 feet and is at this  writing crosscntting the lend.  rvMessrs. Olson and Jacobson returned  lecently from building a. trail to their  property adjoining the Silver Bell, on  Brown's creek. The boys have a good  showing on tlieir property and expect  to do considerable work on it next  year.  A spleTulidT-lihtiTof'ore-wus- struck-  yesterday in the .big crosscut at the  Silver Cup. The particulars of the  strike have not yet been given out, but  it is helieved to be the best yet encountered even in that rich property.  ���������Topic.  THE CITY_C0UNC1L  The regular meeting of the city  council was held last night. Present,  the Mayor/Aids. Kilpatrick, Wells.  Brown, Graham and Crage.  COKKESPOXDENCK  Was read from the board of trade  asking the council to endorse their  request for a grant of land to the  Boston and B. C. Copper Milling and  Smelting Co.; from H. A. Brown,  stating that to comply with the instructions of the council with regard  to his hotel to permit of the building  I of the sidewalk would cost him several hundred dollars and asking the  council to build the sidewalk on the  otherside of the street or else with a  jog around the hotel.  With regard to the smelter grant  Aid. Kilpatrick thought that some  guarantee should be given by the  company that they intended to run a  smelter aud were not .making, .it a  pretence for obtaining a grant of land.  After some discussion it was decided lo endorse the board's leqnest,  at the same time recommending that  the company should be bound as a  condition of the grant to operate the  smelter 'continuously for some stated  period to be fixed by the Dominion  government.  There was considerable discussion  over Mr. Brown's case, which was  finally referred to the committee on  public works.  BEPOKTS OF COMMITTEES.  The public works committee recommended tnat $50 be appropriated to  construct a wagon road to the new  gravel pit back of Turnroo' ranch.  The report was adopted.  BYLAWS.  The council Uien went into coniiniltee to resume consideration ot the  bylaw relating to the Power, Water  and Light and Telephone companies.  The balance, of the evening's session  was occupied with this bylaw, which  finally passed the committee.  The tenders for building the sidewalk were not brought np. They  were opened in committee yesterday  afternoon, hut the contract was not  awarded, and it is likely the work  will be'done by dny labor.

The gr"ate.st  attraction was Tweedie's gold strike  on Le.xir.gton Mountain, and in" spite  of lhe remarkable reports which-I  have heard and only half-believed. I  was astonished at the real fact. The  gold, whicli is principally contained in  the cavities left by the decomposition  of arsenical iron.. fairly dazzled me  and colors of all sizes showed themselves in everv piece that I took trom  t he dump, i'he lead is very ������id." and  at a point some six hundred feet nwny  from the real work it has been opened  up at four distinct, points across tbe  lead, each one of which displays gold  plainly visible without a glass. From  here we walked along the side of the  mountain to winds Pool creek for about  25 minutes .and . took ,a look _at, jind  several fine sample"- from, the" Lucky  Tack lately discovered by Messrs.

The Strike Extends from Port Arthur'  *to the Coast, Including the Shops on  the Branch: Lines.���������The Vancouver  Officials Sanguine of a Satisfactory*  Settlement.  As announced in Wednesday's Herald lhe machinists employed in the-  C. P. R. shops from Fort William  to-  Vancoiiver are on a strike.    A Winnipeg despatch savs that the strike involves about SOOJmeii and includes the-  shops at Field, Trail. Xelson Kamloops  an'd ..other"..-points,  besides   the five  principal ones at Fort -William.  Calgary, Revelstoke and Vancouver. The-  strike is the result of a  movement  hy  which the  machinists   wish   to   have-  their order, the  International Associ--  iiitiun   of; Machinists of America,  ie .  cognized   by   the   railway   company, 1  They   have   only   recently   organized-  their local unions and haveVnow  been*  some months trying to get their order. ,  recognized.     They have even been led-  to believe they would gain their point-  and delegates were hy request sent to  Winnipeg     to    confer   with   Master-  Mechanic Cross,  but after a tedious-  delay of several clays the officials re-.  fused to treat with  the delegation  at'  all  and   the     men     were practieally-  ordeied out of the office  with  the le-  sult that the machinists walked out 011,  Wednesday   morning.     If'they   bad-  received  recognition   the ' machinists-  would have been prepared to quietly-  discuss    their  grievances   which   are1,  mainly    connected   with   their   pay.-  Small   bnt. gradual   reductions   have  been going  on   for  some   time   past,  while  the    pass   privileges formerly-  accorded to the machinists as well as->  other employe's of the Hue have been-  cut olf altogether.  ; Thesi-hedulu of requirements may be * '  summed np under the heads:" (1) Rtc-.~  ognition of the  machinists'., union; (2)' -  establishment 'of  a   minimum   wage *  clause; (3)   increase   of  the overtime* i-  wage rate.

A few./" '  days therefore will see all settled or it.  may result in the suspension of traffic;  .  Engine 617, at which the men   were at  work, is said to have been left by them  this morning much dismantled." -  The News-Advertiser says:   "While  the strike of a small contingent of the*  mechanical department of the C.

The FrPe Pipss of Thursday says :.  There   was   a   large ��������� meeting of   thu-  slriking  iniicliinists   yeslerday   after���������  noon  in  the  union  lrillwliere, in addition to Ihe members of  the general*  committee and   the   uieinbers  of thu '  union,  there  were present a number  of helpers and others  who, while' not  member.   of   the   union, are  in sym-  pulby with the _ trike.    President Bell '  Hnt-Iy  occupied  the chair   and  nftw  lhe 1 oil call and  oilier .natters of rou--*  line business bad been transact ed, matters pertaining to the  best method of  condnctinc the strike Iwere discussed.  It was decided that nothing bnt the-  niost orderly conduct would be allow- -  ed by the ciiuiinitti'e.as it was thought"  by   most of those  present that when -  the case bad been thoroughly gone into a settlement, wnuld   be  speedily ar- *  lived at.   Some discussion took place  in   reference   to   a street rumor that  tbe conip.iny  would, while the strike-  lusted, havetheii work done in Mon-  *  treal.     This   was   regarded   ns   most  unlikely as even if the company did /  lake such action tbe men in the east J.  are in sympathy with the strike and -  a general tie up might result.   It  wns -.  decided to hold a public mass meeting  on   Sunduy   next,   in  one, of the city  This propeity, which consists of three  claims, is a silver-lead proposition and  an eminently piomising one at that.  The galena has the appearance of  being high'grade,. and the ore chute  widens perceptibly inwards the, floor  of the tunnel; it is a treat for a poor  man to w-alk on the silver street, and  my experience of it, though short,  still makes ine feel rich. - Tliere iii-i a  couple of narrow streaks containing n  nice showing of copper pyrites,- nnd  altogether the three lucky ones are to  be congratulated.    The next notable  nropei ty   which  we   visitiil   was Ihe  Wild Flower Group, on llie. north side  nf   Lf'xihgtun   creek   also   diseovered  only two iiinntlis ago.     Here  there  is  perhaps more 1 eal ore  on the surface  than is shown by any silver-lead property that. I have seen  in  this district.  Tbe owners have done a considerable  nuiiiunt  of   work,    considering.'their  circumstances, bui unfortunately tbey  have gone' rat ber  too  far from  their  showing,   and   although  their tunnel  has cut .through three minor stringer*  of ore  which   du not  slm\v  on   lhe  surface Iheir real paystieak  lies some  15 feet ahead  of them.    A   little  further   along  the same lend   we   came  upon a force of men who are engaired  in   ''developing.' the    Lardeau    King,  under the  direction  of Mr. H. O. Mc-  Clymond,     of     Holland,     who   h.������s  stocked it. and intends.to work it  for  all   it   is   worth   (luring   the .winter.  They already have exposed a vein  12  inches wide of shipping ore, nnd  prospects   are   very flattering.     We bad  intended to make a much  more comprehensive pilgrimage, but the weather  theatie* when  the men's case woulil  drove u������ bi'ine.

The   white" girl  presented her bouquet first, Mrs.Han-  bury Williams, takon  by surprise, accepted    lhe   beautiful     bouquet,    and  gave   the  little   donor  a  hearty   kiss  on  eacii   cheek.    At  this   there wero  sounds of cheering, and before    thev  had   subsided .the    little    black   girl  .tripped  up  the  sieps.    and   everyone  wondered   what   reception   she  would  receive  from   the    charming  hostess.
