The Balance of the   Revelstoke Recording District Described.
This is situated about 5 miles from
the Keystone, nml is a little higher,
put-Imps 700 or SOO feet' In this camp
there have: been 3 new locutions recorded ami 21 certificates of work
issued during tlio past season. The
locality has been brought inlo notice
by the. Boston anil il. C. Copper Mining und Smelting Company, the
properly of which is by far the best
developed of any in the neighbourhood. All arrangements for steady
winter's work seemed complete, com-
iiioilious cabins having been built, and
an ample: supply of provisions sunt up.
but. owing to some most unfortunate
hitch in the Company, all work was
suspended and the men discharged.
The cause was certainly not the want
of visible ore on the claim, as there
is a very line showing.
On this creek the principal set of.
claims is that known as the Rosebery
Group, comprising 10 claims,all owned
nud being developed by the Carues
Creek Consolidated Co., Limited.
Development work has been continued
throughout the past season with a
view to placing the property on a
thorough working aud producing
basis. Ou the Rosebery itself an
upper tunnel was driven to prove the
lend, and continued for over 100 feet,
assays being made frequently of the
ore (,u*si-ni(:al pyrites, carrying gold),
which were -highly satisfactory. A
lower tunnel ha.- been driven some I-S50
feet, exposing lhe Name kind of ore,
but. witli Mime yellow copper Ichal-
copyrite) showing. As this ��� lower
tunnel is deep enough to prove the
ore body continues for nt least 200 feet
from the surface, there should be a
mine here in tbe near future. Very
com foi table cabins for stores, sleeping
and eating, have been biiilbconvenient
to llie properly, whilst a third tunnel
bus buuu commenced at a sliil lower
depth. A large ore bin has been constructed lo receive Lhe output of the

an aerial ��� tramway li> a convenient

Creek, whence the existing trail (to

it,'of whicli 11 were new locations last"
year. The ore generally assays well
in silver, copper and lend. The camp
also contains ore-very similar in appearance to the Rossland ore, and is
certainly one of the promising camps
of the Dig Bend. In the immediate
neighbourhood is the Adair or Eureka
Group of cliiinis, on which very considerable work has been done,
especially on the Kureka claim, where
between $2,000 and ��3.000 has been
expended.and substantial preparations
made for the more permanent development of the properly next season.
When work was concluded for this
winter, the owners reported having
tunnelled int.) a vein of clialcnpyrite
over two feet thick.
.ion DON I��ABS
No new locations have been recorded
iu ill's camp owing lo the lateness of
the season, which kept many ofthe
old locations beneath the snow all the
summer. For the same reason very
little actual development work was
done the assessments being performed by labour applied on trails, of
which four miles were built, and which
will pi live of the greatest service in
lhe future by supplying much uioie
conveuient access to the claims.
This camp is situated some 12 miles
from the mouth of I-*aac Creek, which
empties into the Columbia Kiver
about 111 miles south of Kevelstoke.
Some 11 new locations have lieen re
curded, and 15 certilieales of work

The Vancouver government organ,
The World, admits the complete defeat of the Martin administration but
ib dropping hints that Mr. Martin
may yet make an arrangement with
some of the. Independant members,
which will enable him "to secure the
strongest following in the present
legislature." The Hisrai.u does not
know who tlipso Independents may be
nor does the World condescend so far
to details as to attempt to enumerate
them. But it does know that this
province distinctly declared on the
0th that it, wanted no more of the
smart aleck politics which placed Mr.
Martin in power lust session and has
kept him there ever since. Mr. Martin must not lie allowed to stand upon
the order of his going. He must go al
If Sir Wilfrid Ltiurier's word goes
for anything it is obvious that Mr.
Martin's defeat drags Lieut. Governor
Mclnnes down with. him. He must
go to. In every violation of the constitution, in every pipes of political
chicamery which Mr. Martin's perverted genuis devised and his eotoss il
impudence curried through, the Lieut.
Governor has proved  himself a   readv

success could palliate. 'He has lost
and must take the consequences. And
the Laurier government need not go
afield to search for his successor. The
appointment of Mr. Bostock would be
satisfactory even to that gentleman's
political opponents and would go far
to assist in restoring the confidence of
the outside pablic in the stability of
British Columbia from an aciminis-

Mt. Gilmoiu* in Vancouver, defeated
Chas. Wilson the leader of t.he straight
Conservatives, by six votes. The
figures were 1-102 fo 1-150. In such
close polling as thislheie is room for
a subsequent revisal of the count,
which may yet leave Mr. Wilson in
possession of one of the Vancouver
seats. It was a subject of great regret
on Saturday night that Mr. Wilson
was left out. He is ilie lec-ognized
leader of the straight paity line
Conservatives, a section which fought
11 clean, str-iight light in tiie contest
and stood for an independent,
progressive platform, under dictation
of or obligation to neither clique nor
corporation. In this eleition stiaight
Conservatism stood for independence
and progress. Mr. Wilson carried its
standard nobly nnd was one of the
very men needed in the legislature to
bring order out of chaos and introduce
a general trend of legislation, wliich
while working .for llie best interests
of the people and favorable to their
just demands, would vet maintain
the prosperity of the province by
antagoinism lo capita'. It is sincerely
to be hoped that we may yet see Mt.
Wilson filling a seat in the house and
cabinet at the next session of parliament.

Another great lo-s wns sustained hy
the province in the defeat of Hon. C.
H.   Mackintosh   in   Rossland. Mr.
Mtickintosh is a man. who has done
more good work iu bringing Rossland
to the front than any nl her dozen men
in tho province put together. His
election would have helped immensely
to leiustate British Columbia in the
eyes of investors. Had he been elected he must, have come directly to the
front as cabinet minister, pel haps a>
premier. All Kootenay would have
hailed a summons lo him to form a
cabinet with delight. As fiee of any
section in the now victorious opposition bnt yet having political
atrinities with a very large proportion,
the pieponderating jiroportiiin. of ils
members, as a man with a big slake
iu the country, of conservative common sense and yet of progressive ideas
iind a staunch friend of the people,
Mr. Mackintosh could have foimeda
slioug and stable government pa: ty
oul of the opposition to Martin, .is
pel Imps no other in.in of prominence
among them can hope to tlo. He
would have had a majority in Ihe
house, the full conlideme of the piovince. and his talents and abilities
would have been devoted tc fui thcring
the progress of the country and the
welfare of the people together. The
Nelson Miner calls the defeat of Mr.
Mackintosh "The most striking piece
of political insanity in the records of
the province," This is strong language but British Columbia ceitainly
owes a grudge to the frantic demagogues who iu the supposed interests
of labor robbed the province of Mr.
Mackintosh's services and left progressive Conservatism nt such a serious
disadvantage as that in which it
stands ut present in thc legislature of
the province.

He is quick and nervous in his movements, and his constant habit is to  thrust cither one or both hands under  his bolt���������a practice which makes it  easy for artists to familiarize his figure with lhe public. He is instantaneous and direct in conversation,  and goes as straight to the point in  view as a well aimed bullet to a  target. I have noticed thai when ho  meets new people he advances  towards them eagerly, listens intently and in three minutes either engages the new acquaintance in earnest  conversation or has done with him  with a decisive not of parting.

Tt may be a duke whom you  find in the central sails of the residency���������as it was In my case���������and who  offers  the  register  for you  to sign.  The Field Marshal works continuously, and to do so has tn bo free from  Interruption; therefore visitors meet  him only at lunch or dinner. In  Bloemfontein. where he was living between Willis, his table was a small one  standing a few feet from the head of  the very large long* table at which  sat his staff���������his ponderous, impressive staff of distinguished men of Hie  aristocracy. You dined with "Bobs"  In khaki, of course, at Ids small table  ���������if you were highly honored: or you  may dine with his staff and be presented to him after the meal for as  long or brief an Interview as he  pleases.  That is precisely the amount and extent of state about his surroundings.

Good men like him be-  catto- he Is good; kindlv xaet^ And a  ve.-spoi'sive chord in his nature: and  those who are stern feel that he, too,  Is stern upon occasion." He has complimented a Tommy on his soldlerli-  nesK in such a way ns to win the  man's loyalty lo the end and surrender ot his life, and on tho very same  day he has ordered home a general  knowing that thu order carried wilh  it the ever enduring disgrace on a  man who meant us -well as himself,  but had not the capacity to realize  tils ambition.  Tils, army will do anything for him;  march longer, starve harder; go without tents, blankets, and rum more  days nnd weeks, and die In greater  numbers tor him than any other man  alive.

His compact, nervey  little body is* all a reservoir of  strength, and you can speak of his  physique of a giant. Indeed, he lives  on hlh nervo and draws upon his  strength, as if both wore inexhaustible. He will sit iind write for 10  days on end, dealing wilh a multitude  of varied subjects���������civil, military, cov-  ���������arinj; tin: enormous range of view  of a soldier, and an administrator;  and then.

The Canadian government pays salaries and commissions* on emigration  business and has 'some 250 agents at  work in the various states. Some of  the agents receive both salaries. and  commission and make a very good  thing out-of the work.

The  agent at Kansas ��������� City gets $75 per  month salary, and he also has.a nice  expense account.

Mrs. MeArthur and two boys were  killed outright. Mr. MeArthur and  Russell MeArthur have since died, and  three other members of the family lie  at the point of death. The eldest  daughter. 11 girl of some 15 years, escaped. Thc- story of tlie murder is  as follows: The hired man, one John  Morrison, confesses lo have done the  act. Friday evening ho was playing  fooiball some tour miles irom the  'place he was working al, ami U-fl for  his lionie'al McArthurs about half  past eleven. 11 would seem as though  he had made up his mintl to kill the  family as he look olt his boots outside  or the entrance to the house find hud  an axe with lilm. From lhe porch ho  entered into a kitchen. On the north  west corner of the house is a double  bed room with bods In the north west  corner and south west corner, leaving  a space between tho two beds ot somo  five feet in which was a cot. Mr.  MeArthur occupied tho bed in the  north west corner, and was apparently .lying on the right side. In bed  with him was a little boy of .��������� or 5  years. The other was occupied by  Mrs. MeArthur and her babe of about  two weeks, and at the foot of the  same bed slept a little girl of about  7 years. - On the cot before mentioned slept a little boy of about 3 years.  Tt is apparent that Mr. MeArthur  was struck first, and i>n the right side  ot tlie head with tho back of the axe.  From! all appearances he never moved  after being struck. Whether 'Mrs.  MeArthur or ��������� the little boy was' the  next victim matters not, but tho little  boy' who. slept with his father was  struck ovei- the left eye and from, the  ugly gash left must have been struck  with the sharp part of the axe. The  little fellow cannot recover. Mrs. MeArthur received four blows. The  right ear was partially cut. There is  a gash on the head, another over the  right'eye. and a deep cut on the;*.skill}  as though done with the blade -of an  axe. The blow at the baby was not  very well aimed, as there is a gash  about -two inches about the temple  and partly through the .skull. Neither  was the blow aimed at the little girl  sleeping with her mother. ' very exact,  as from the marks left lt would appear as though he intended to strike  with the blade of the axe, but miscalculating the distance,, the blade  over reached its mark and' struck,  with the handle of tho axe .-.on the  neck. From those he seems to have  gone to the little boy in the ' cot.  There is no skull wound on thu child,  but the whole side of the face is black  and bruised and apparently was  struck with.the flat of an axe. The  murderer thought six.ot his witnesses  were now dead, and yet he was not  satisfied, for he wont upstairs whore  the other members of the family were  sleeping. Upstairs, turning to the  lett and immediately to the right,  are to other bedrooms. In the first  slept the oldest boy of the family,  about 13 years, and Morrison's bed-  mate*. He-was found lying on nis  face with a gash about ."> inches-long  and one inch deep near the middle  of his head. Of this room was another occupied by the elder girl of the  -family,-somc-15-years,-and_her_brother._  about 11 years. Tho boy was Morrison's last victim and was found  lying 011 the floor with his face lying  on his hand. On lhe back of iho hand  was 11 deep hole, likely made with the  corner blade of an axe. McArthur's  life was short. When the police rcacn-  nci the place thoy began to search lor  ���������the murderer and found Morrison with  a bad flesh wound as if he had tried  to carry out his previous intention or  self destruction. Reside him was a  revolver with three cartridges and the  hammer.. raised, a double barrel  shot gun" with" tiie right barrel discharged aud the axe with which ii.:  had clone his bloody work. Ills recovery- is doubtful, but he was able 10  be moved and was taken to Moosomin In charge of Sergeant Mclnnes  and   lodged al   the barracks.  IMPERIAL BW  OFC/yMADA  Head Office, Toronto.

At   lhe   Epworth    League   in     the  Methodist church   on   Monday   night  F.   Buker   gave   a   liuu   biographical |  sketch of Saul, the first King of Israel, i  Mr. Johnson did the same for Joseph. I  recommending the Stirling qualities of '  character seen   in Joseph for thu imitation of all young men.  Al the close of llu; regular meeting  Rev. S. J. Thompson, the pastor of  the church, introduced the question of  this India Famine Fund. A committee  of ihrei! were appointed to prepare  subscription lists, and Messrs. H. L.  Lovering, F. Buker, XV. Savage and  \V. Bews, witli Misses Mulntyru,  Glover, Sawyer and Carlson were appointed collectors. F. Bnkcr is the  treasurer of the League and will duly  keep account of all monies paid and  sue to the forwarding of the. money  through safest channels tu the  Missionaries who are laboring in India  iu the.famine district, who will administer the relief to the most needy.  Subscription lists will he held at Field  & Bews' store on First street, and at  Savage Brc.'s store on Second street,  for the convenience of any who may  wish to aid in this laudable effort of  the young people of the Epworth  League.  A Faulty Ballot.  Under ihe above caption the Columbian comments very severely on  methods adopted by the Martin  government in the election to destroy  the society of tho ballot, even hinting  at ballot box stuffing in that city.  However the last charge may be, what  it says about the ballot papers is  certainly correct: "In New Westminster at any rate, there was no  secrecy about it, bur, the mark of every  elector could be seen by tlie deputy  returning officers and the scrutineers,  according l.o statements made to The  Columbian on reliable authority. The  cross made by the elector, it seems  could be plainly seen through the  ballot paper, when it was exhibited to  the deputy returning ofllcer for verification of the official mark."  As every elector must have been  aide to notice for himself lbe paper  on which tho ballots were printed  was of the thinnest possible kind, the  surface was glazed rendering it difli-  ctilt to make a mark with a pencil  without leaning heavily on it-and the  pencils weie of the hardest variety  made. Everything conspired together  to make it absolutely impossible to  mark tho ballot without the cross  shewing through on the opposite  side.  iponges  Large  Consignment  Just Arrived  INCLUDING  Carriage Sponges  25c to T5c  Wool Sponges, 10c to <T5c  Mediterranean Sponges  10c to $1.50  Manruka Sponges  $1.50 to $5.00  Red Gross'  DRUGSTORE  Geo.
