The prospectus of tho Prince Alining .-mil Development Oo., a loctl  syndicate formed Lo work the Standard group in Uiu Big Bend district  has boon laid on tlio llijltAl.M's table.  Tli'j prospectus contains Llie follow  ing extract from tin; report on the  property made liy Leo. Vim Rosenborg, tliu prominent New York mining  engineer:  "The. country rock is chiefly schist  cut liy (Diorilo or Syenite) dykes. In  the schist occiii' narrow bands of  limestone. Tlie veins are curried in  iintl along the dykes. As fur us is  known there are aliout nine veins upon  tlie properly, six of wliich are copper  ������������������md geld hearing, the others carry  arsenical iron wilh gold."  "The copper-hearing veins show  large cropping.*--, most important  known at present are lht! two veins  known as tlie Standard veins. No. 1  and No. 2. No. 1 is the larger and  more promising of the two; tliey arc  approximately sixty i'tet apart, and  in depth will prohahly form one very  largo vein." "They havo a general  northwesterly course and a dip of  aliout forty-five degrees to the northeast." "The veins are traceable Corn  long distance across Iho properly."  ������������������The surface indications are exceedingly favorable and it is fair to expect  that large and gootl ore bodies will be  found in depth.*'  "The Standard No. 1 is a very thick  vein showing on the crop pings, above  Tunnel No. 1, fully twelve foot across  the hill near Tunnel No. 2 it is more  than double this in thickness.. Vein  No. 'i appears to be split near Lhe  surface, the three sections of the samo  in cross-cut No. _3, showing a combined  thickness of about six feet."  "A large part of thu material exposed in cross-cut No. ii is highly  mineralized, tlie cropping, aiul cuts  on the veins show extensive mineralization."  "The entire properly can hedovelop-  ed by tunnels and uprising. Sinking  shafts would be Loo expensive and too  slow.. -.[ am'- confident, Lhat Lhis  method of." development will open up  good ore bodies. Tl must not, however, be expected thedrift will be for  i he entire long! h iu'good ore. Usually  ore bodies occur ��������� in . schist along, the  course and dip ol" llio vein. The  intervening may contain low-grade  material or be barren."  "It may be staled that the ores _;are  smelting ores ��������� as far as lhe copper-  hearing veins are concerned."  "I believe that with proper development this property will become a  large producer and- together with the  smeller Lo be erected when lhe ore  supply wairants it. the enterprise will  prove a largo and paying one."'

The Toronto Telegram's London  correspondent cables the following:  The opinion amongst Canadians here is  that I Ion.Tarte, Canadian Minister of  of Public AVorks and Chief Commissioner from the Dominion lo the  Paris Imposition has heen indiscreet  unlawful in bis speech in Paris, consequently it ij a line; the Liberal party  hy his prn-Fieneh sentiments which  he seem.*. Lo ul ter every chance he gets.  Paris eorrespoudent of the Daily  Chronicle say.-Mr. Tarte. in a lecture  at Canada's section last week, conveyed  thu impiusMiin that the Province of  Quebec was anxious to adopt Iri-color.  ln commenting 011 Mr. Tart e's indis-  cicelnoss, the correspondent of the  Daily Chronicle says Mr. Tarte seems  lo forget 1 hat he has (,11110 10 Tram-Las a representative of the Dominion of  of Canada and not the province of  Quebec."

FORTS  HAYE BEEN CAPTURED  PREMIER DUNSMUIR  ������&QSBS������&0  K3SSZ������33S4  Israel Tarie is the chartered libertine  of Canadian .politics. The ordinary  rules of the name have been set aside  in his favor. Jle and his sons iu his  paper have been privileged to say  what Ihey liked. He has been free to  indulge his sentimental preference for  a foreign country over the empire of  which he is a paid servant by deed and  word, even Io the length of living a  foreign Hag on 11 government ship on'  which lie was Iravclline; on government business, The leasl objection to  these erratic pranks was always met  hy 11 howl from lhu government pres������.

Ills utterances us Canadian Commissioner lo the Paris exhibition have  drawn upon him the severest censures  lrorn the London press. The JIkkald  publishes in another column the  comments of the Daily Chronicle tin  our talkative minister of public works.  Relow follows what the St.' .lames  (iii'/.elt.e has lo say ithotn him. Surely  the Daily Chronicle and Si. James  Cm/.cIIu are not trying lo create  political capital or stir up race  prejudices in tlie Dominion, Tlie  (iu/.ettee says: ".

REVELSTOKE   HERALD
Oregon this season amounted to about
aoo  head.
The Oregon cattle woro purchased
from tho herds belonging to the great
estate of the late Peter French, whose
ranges were In Malheur and Harney
counties, in Oregon, who was killed
several years ago. The stock is of
exceptionally high grade, and commanded, it is said, the highest prices
brought by cattle in any. of the localities in which p'ui-chases are made
for  the  Montana ranges.
The Bloom Cattle company will
bri'K; in (1.000 young steers from New
Mexico, unloading* at Billings, and
driving m-ross the ranges to Valley
county.
J.Iauy thousand head are coining
front Texas th1s:season.
The VUirlington expects to kcI a big
run of stuck at Crawford from the
Klkhorn within the next 'month, and
indications are that there will not be
less than 2,500 cars of Texas stock for
Montana come over Iho road from
Concordia within the next two
inopths. The stock shipments from
the south will undoubtedly be heavier
this season than for some previous
years. ���**.

Ot army horses in the futui-e, says the
���Canadian  Gazette.      The    600    horses
purchased by Dr. -SIcEachran on Lord
Strathcona's: behalf,  on    the   ranches
Ot Alberta, were severely tried by the
ebange of temperature,  for  the thermometer shov.-ed 20 degrees below zero

West, 'and the   consequence   was: that
1C0 or  so contracted  pneumonia;  but
es   only   K50   horses   were   needed   by

���Securing  the 100  extra    remounts    in

are still upon North "West horses, and
the  opinion   ot them expressed  by  ox-
pert  ofllcers   with.   British   forces   in
jJouUi Africa is most gratifying. They
are pronounced   larger and heavier of

IN THE  EAST
There is a. show of concerled action
by the powers at Pekin. but it is only
a show, and the dowager empress and
her anil-foreign ..party know it.      If lt
were not for the conflicting inter-esis
of Russia and Japan,  order could bo
restored   within.   21    hours.    "Russia
alone could put down the insurrection,
if  the  Chinese  foreign    office   Would
accept the offer of    the Russian ambassador to put the czar's troops into
the unsettled districts.     Tho national
1 spirit runs low in China, but it rebels^
at that, and is backed up directly by
Japan,  and indirectly by  Great Britain, which supports the   Japanese as
against  the   designs of  the  Russians.
The anti-Rus'sTan feeling runs high In
Japan.    It has been growing since tho
Japanese-Chinese war.    Tlie* Japanese
feeling   that   Russia    has  Interfered
with   their    rightful    fruits    of    that
struggle. Japan alms at Japanese domination  of the    Orient, and    Russia
combats that ambition both in China
and Korea.
Japanese statesmen have fresh
cause for alarm in Russia's recent
success in causing;Korea to grant her
a site tor a coal depot and naval hospital at Masampho harbor. It is
claimed that by this move. Russia has
acquired exclusive territorial rights,
and has put other powers out from acquiring a foothold in the finest harbor
on the coast of Korea. Masampho
harbor, according to M. Pavloff, lhe
Russian '.minister, will be headquarters
for Russia's fleet in 'eastern waters.
British diplomats claim that. Russia's occupation of Masampho harbor
Is a flat violation of an '.agreement
made 1C years ago. At that time a
British fleet occupied Port: Hamilton,
an Island of strategic importance off
the coast of Korea. . Russia protested, and the British f root was
withdrawn. It Is claimed by British
interests, under "a most explicit guarantee tha-t RUssia would not.under any
circumstances whaterer.occupy Korean
territory."
"Many things have happened In the
last six years," says the __,ondon
Times, commenting on thc situation,
"but that engagement remains as important now as it wius then���directly
important for Japan and indlrsctly
Important, .for- this country and for
other nations. It would be rash, perhaps, to say that this venturesome
move on the part of Russia is abso-
.1 uuily. inconsistent with British intor-
ests. but it certainly seems to threaten
those of Japan with a deadly blow."
Here are vast complications which
make lh�� Chinese sltun.-ion a. profound riddle. Where affairs will
bring up. no man can now determine.
I thlnl:
l: thing
It  is
.ll'iM
Just ti line to lot you know how the
trotter is progressing in this part of
the world. First lot me give: you a few
of our best records. The record for a
mile iu New Zealand is 2:1!!, put up by
Fritz at the Canterbury Trotting
club's meeting.... As you are all well
aware, Fritz is an Australian horso.
His sire Vaueleve, and dam Fraulein,
were  imported  from  your country.
I consider Fritz under all conditions
lo be one of the greatest trotters, if
not the greatest trotter, on this earth.
!L_et me give you a few of liis best
performance:; and the conditions he-
was raced under:
When he trotted in   2:13 at Canterbury he  was  landed in Now  Zealand
about 10  days    before     the    meeting.
Besides   being  humped   about .for  six
days ou   llie  Pacific  ocean  he  had   to
undergo a very rough railway journey,
and   remember   our   horses     here   are
not so li.i lunate to have cars to travel
in like you have In your country, and
in   addition   lo   this'the   difference   of
climate would  upset  0!)  horses  out  of
every 100.     Vet. after  undergoing this
rough   trip,   a  few   days   later,   on   a
half mile track, (not turned up at the
bends),   he  stepped  si  mile in  '_!:l!!.= Ot
course, you    have scores of horses in
your country thai can go miles in 2:13
or. better on a half mile track.     But
toll me how many you have that you
could bring lo this country that could
go a mile in 2:18 on one of our colonial  half  mile    cow     paths.        I don't
doubt  but what you  have  some that
could do lhe trick under expert handling, hut I don't think you have many
that could  go the journey under  our
mode   of  training.     .Anil    I  think    if
Fritz   was  placed   under   the   care   of
Goers,  or any of your  leading horsemen, arid over oife'of your best tracks,
he would shatter all existing trotting
records.     I can fully realize    what a
big   gulf   there   is   between   2:13   and
2:03 S-4,   and   when   a  horse    is  going
round  about 2:10  seconds  are  mighty
big  things  to  knock  off.    Fritz    has
been tinv-d a half in 1:011-2, and I am
confident even with colonial skill and
over one of our best tracks  he  could
step in 2:0S.     Let me tell you that the
trotter that leaves    America for    our
shores to  take Fritz  must be one  of
the    consistent    "do-or-die,"    always-
ready race horses,  for Fritz is one of
this sort���always ready.   Itis Chicago
to ii chestnut that, you could take him
out any time, summer or winter, and
he   would    show  you    a  mile : round
about  2:1a.      He  has    been    brought
hero  lo New Zealand  in*: the dead  of
winter,  and  with  scarcely any  training,  on  a  wet grass    track,  he    was
taken out, just to amuse the    public,
and' stepped    two   heats   in  2:1-1   and
2:1 ",-j.     1 have seen him go in 2:1H on
an up-country show; ring���a track tha c
it  would  scarcely   be    sate   to    drive
goats over;  yet Fritz gets around in
safety,  and,   what   is  more,   he  never
makes.'a mistake,   lot alone a   break,
and BiickUiiul; retains his seat in  the
sulky,  which on such    a rough    track,
appears   to most   people   to  be  a  far
greater     performance     that     Fritz's.
Verily, Fritz is our champion, and he
stands alone In a class all by himself.
Now a few  words  about  the    lesser
lights.   The stallion  ..record, for New
Zealand is held by Albert Victor 2:23.
All   things considered,  this is a  good
performance.      It   w.os   put  up  on   a
half  mile,  very  uneven,, grass    track.
It wasalso put up in a handicap race,
and   from    a standing    start,   Albert
Victor being the last to take the word.
When    you    take    into    consideration
that-he had. to  stand    on    the mark,
take  the  word  when    it  v,-a_s    glvon.,
take  the  outside  of  a  dozen  xt.irtc-rs
on  a.  rough,  grass    track,   and    win
fairly easy  In 2:23,  you  will s_ty 1l Is
a   fair   so   for    anything     outside    of
(Montreal  Witness, May 30, 1!)00).
Mrs. Egerton,  an English lady, who
d'.d nursing -work in Dawson City, carried out  an original  idea    in London,
which greatly    gratified    the C. P. R.
people.     Mrs. Egerton had been much
struck  by  the scenery  along tho  line
of thc  C.  P.  Ti., as well as with   the
service  which   the company  rendered
across  the    continent  and    she  determined to lei  the folk in England know
something about both.     For this purpose   she availed    herself   of  a  fancy
bail  at .Covent Garden,   to appear   in
a costume  which  took  the lirst prize
for originality,  and   which  illustrated
Canadian scenery and the C. P. R. in
a highly striking manner.     The lady's
hat was trimmed in u manner to show
the * C.   P.   '11.   trains   in   motion;   her
cape   set   forth   Lake   Ontario,   Lake
Superior    and  thc    Rocky Mountains,
while the front ol! her dress showed a
train   rushing   at   full   speed   through
the wonderful ravines ln tho far North
V.'isl.      In   tho    lady's   hand    was  a
banner  which  contained   the coats  of
arms of  the several  provinces constl-
tul.'r.g   the   Dominion.      The  tout  en-
Keinble, as tho London press remarked
at the lime, was wonderfully striking
aad impressive and gave   til a glance
an  idea of a  country  of  which  Londoners,  previous to the Jubilee,  knew
very   little.      Mrs.   Egerton,   as   Mr.
l'.ckcr,   the C P.*it.  agent in London,
pointed out, did all this "off her own
hot,"   and    solely  with     the patriotic
viav of making Canada known.     The
lady   is  coming out  again,    probably
this summer, when she will make an
extended tour of this country. Photographs of Mrs. Egerton In her unique
cost ume are at the ��� general offices of
the  C.  P.  R.

Laing's Nek and Majuba were completely evacuated by the Boers last  night. General Clery from Ingogo is  now coming over the Nek. I have  had tc camp here for want of water.  A correct list of yesterday's casualties will be sent as soon as received."  A comparison of General Kelly  Kenny's despatch with the maps available sbow apparently that the  British line of communications cut by  the Boers has been restored by tho  movement of troops from the north  toward Honing's Spruit to reach which  place they would have to pass through  Jttoodeval if they followed the railroad.  The. fact that General Kelly Kenny  mays General Knox will move out from  Kronstadt to Intercept the enemy  would seem to demonstrate that they  ��������� ���������.re retreating before the northern  British force a-nd that troops from  Kronstadt, south.' of Honing's Spruit,'  ���������have been ee::t -to intercept them if  . ->oss!ble. ,  London, June 3.3���������Two pleceo of news  ���������encouraging   to   the     British Un   the  official despatches are that the broken  communications  of  Lord  Roberts are  in  a fair  way  to  be  mended  by  the  rorces moving northwards and southards and driving  off the roving command, and that S.r Kedvers Suller Is  at  last  master   of  Laing's  Nek.

London,   June   13.���������A   plet-.Llful   crop  of   Boer   reports   have   been   littering  through Lorenzo Marques.    According  to  these  General   De  Wet   with  13,000  burghers   is   marching   on    .Johannesburg.   The doers nave rctaTCeii' Bloemfontein,   where      President      Steyn  Is  again   occupying   the   presidency.   The  British   have   sustained   a severe   defeat  at  KTandsfonteln,   and havo  also  lost  750   killed   and    wounded  and   130  prisoners    in  a    fight    at    Vrederort.  Nothing  from  any source  lends  color  lo these stories, with the exception of  .the last which  is -probably the    Boer  ���������version of  the  disaster  to  the militia  battalion   of  the  Derbyshire  regiment  at Eoodeval.      In regard to President  Steyn   being  at   Bloemfontein,   a despatch from Maseru, Basutoland, dated  Monday,    June    11,    says      President  ���������    Steyn  was    then at    Vrede,  200 miles  from    Bloemfontein.      General    Buller  seems  to   be making  substantial  progress   and   ought   to   soon   possess   the  railroad at Charlcstown in  the southern  extremity   of  Natal," -whence  presumably he will   advance    on llcidel-  liui-g and effect  a junction   with   Lord  Roberts.

Juno 13.���������The last message  out of Pekin to reach London left  there yesterday morning at 1.1 o'clock,  journeying by way of the Russian  telegraph through Manchuria, the  Tien Tsing lines being cut. It is as  follows: "General Tung, a Mahomo-  dan, and extremely hostile to foreigner.*-!, arrived this morning and had a  long audience with Prince Tuang,  1'iuhcr of Lo Boir, who is seemingly  friendly Lo tho Boxers. Prince Tuang  has been appointed chief of the foreign  oflice over Prince Ching, who is more  friendly toward foreigners. The despatch of moro marines was in response  to a telegram from thc minister to the  consul at Tien Tsin for additional  troops. Conveyances have left PeKln  Lo meet the troops coming by the first  train. All the telegrams indicate that  the situation lias not in the least Improved. On the contrary, the disorder has spread, from the neighborhood ot rekin to the capital iiijelf,  which Is growing turbulent in unll-  foi-elgn demonstrations. In addition  iu the burning 'of tho Pekin club, tho  secretary ur thu Belgian legation has  been roughly treated in the street.  Hostile crowds continue to demonstrate against the legations. Two  thousand international troops are approaching the city and tho advance  guard is due to arrive today."  The United stales, according to a  despatch from Copenhagen, has given  a hearty adhesion to the scheme for a  European  demonstration.  T.ie Russian minister in Pekin. who  also acts as he envoy ot Denmark, is  credited with having 'sent a despatch  to the Danish foreign office to 11:a  effect that a demonstration has been  planned under the leadership of England and Russia; in which all the  great powers and -several of the small  ones will take part. The latter are  not called upon to send troops, as  there are enough on the spot, but they  arc to be asked to delegate the right  to hoist the flag of thc great powers  in order that a demonstration may be  made or a battle fought under the  flags of all Europe. Japan and the  United States have been informed and  agree to the arrangements.  London,   June    13.���������Sixteen     British  marines reconnoitering in advance of  the international column marching to  Pekln, fought and chased 2,000 Boxers  on Monday, killing 20 or 30.      A correspondent accompanying the   column  In  a despatch dated  Tien  Tsie,  June  12,  via     Shanghai,    June      13,    says:  "While  the working    parties    accompanied by a patrol of 16 British marines,   commanded   by   Major   Johnson,  were repairing    the line    on Monday  afternoon they encountered small parties of Boxers who    were    destroying  the line. The Boxers moved away from  the  advanoed "marines    and dispersed  into  the    country,   leaving    the    rails  moved and the sleepers burning. ,The  marines,  when  two miles  in  advance  of the first train near Lang Fang, suddenly  perceived  BoKers  coming  from  a  village   on  their fleft.      It  was estimated they numbered 2,000.- some of  t*-em -being   mounted   and' they  were  toying  to  get  between    the  and  tie train.

London, Juno II.���������Lord Roberts' line  of communications has been practically restored by a complete victory  gained by Generals Methuen and Kitchener over General De *>\'c*L yesterday. The Boer camp was captured  and the burghers it is added were  scattered   in all  directions'.  Lord Roberts has fought a battle  with General Botha, at the ond ot  which the British gained considerable  ground and the Boers were beaten.  All is (iiiiei at Pretoria and Johannesburg.    .  London. June 15.���������The war oflice ha:,  made public, a despatch from General  Buller, accepting the congratulation**!  of the secretary of state for war, Lord  Lansdo'.vne, in which lie says: "The  l.)oisets, who have been unlucky, had  a chance at Almond's Xek and show,  ed themselves to bo as good as any  others. About 130 yards nt each, end  of Laing's Nek the ends of the tunnul  are blown in and It will require several days to move the debris. The  line,'otherwise, is uninjured and open  to the reversing stations and also to  Sandsprult.  London, June lo.���������That Commandant  Louis Botha should have been able to  stand for two days aga'nst Lord  Roberts, and then to retreat without  losing any guns, or having any of hi**)  men captured, is taken to mean that  ho has a force which the British must  still regard as formidable when acting  defensively. The pacification of thc  whole Transvaal, especially the wide  spaces from the railways, Is looked  upon as a business requiring months  rather      than      weeks. Meanwhile  everything goes well with the British.  A Boer bulletin issued at Machadorp,  dated June 12, says: "Both wings of  the Federal forces touched the advancing enemy at 10 o'clock yesterday  east of Pretoria. Fighting continued  until dark.. The enemy though in  overwhelming numbers were cheeked  along a line of 30 miles and the burghers succeeded in driving back their  right wing five miles. Two burghers  were killed and 10 wounded."  Another Machadorp announcement  is that the first regiment of General  L'uller'is <.orce to attack Almond's Nek  was annihilated, but as the British  were in overwhelming force, the burghers were compelled to abandon thc  Nek.  - A despatch from Lorenzo Marques,  dated yesterday says: "President  Kruger is holding on to his gold and  is issuing paper notes from a press in  his executive car. The Boer government coin stock is exhausted and  tie officials aro now paying out of  .r's-in gold discs unstamped. Some  who have declined to accept notes  have taken their --salaries in gold bars.  The Boer government is still paying  out much gold in that way.".  General Rundell had a sharp sklr-  p-.ish at Ficksburg on June 12. Th?.  Peers had been aggressive along the  whole Ficksbur- Senekal line and  menaced F-icksburg in force. The  Bi'lish outposts retired to the village.  General Rundle held the attention of  tha Boers in front with two guns,  while th.j'yeomanry were sent round to  th-3:'.'- rear to drive them off, which  thfX did, with a loss to the British of  three wounded. Two patrols were also  wounded.  President Steyn is at Sitkop. His  presence ifhiere is supposed to account  for  the Boers activity.

It was followed shortly  afterwards by the advance of Watson's Australians upon the city, a demand for surrender, and by G o'clock  on Monday night the Landrose of the  city brought the keys to Field Marshal Lord Roberts as a formal token  ot the surrender. Then preparations  were at once made for the entry of tho  army on the following day, when at  fi o'clock Lord Roberts took up "TiTs  position in front of the parliament  buildings and viewed the Britishers  .as they proudly marched past."   ci   CHINESE   TROUBLES  F  Jiea.1 Oflice, Toronto.

Eyron Brennan. the British consul  from Shanghai, now in London, says  the      Mohammedan troops      have  machine guns and repating rifles.

TUK 1-liAlN.UIK Alt ISA OK VISU ItlVlCK  In the outside world   very   little   is  yet known  of the Fish River District.  If the claims upon development, prove  to   be   as   rich* as some of the surface  showings now indicate, we can  safely  say   that   we.  have   a   .Mining Gamp.  .Some few claims A'eie located on Fifh  Rivi-i'   a   number   of   years ago,   anil  quile a lot of prospecting was done  iu  1SUS,   when   some   promising    claims  were staked, 'out not  until late iu  the  summer   of   lSlli) did people coiiiiiience  lo realize tliu great mineral wealth  of  the District.     Some   very large leads  of   (piartz located  near the mouth ;of  Pool Greek (a tributary of Fish River),  which bus been for years  passed over  by the prospectors, who  were looking  for galena only, have   been   recently  proved   to   carry   veiy   fair   value in  gold.  Last summer,   a little   galena  and  copper   being   found   in one of  these  leads,   it   was staked and   some work  performed,   when   ii   lot  of free gold  was discovered scattered  through the  quartz,   wliich,   when   assayed,   gave  splendid returns in gold. Since this  Iind n great number of claims have  been located. ���������' The latest Iind was  made on Pool Greek ; in November.  Five claims were staked on a lead 20  feet wide, the samples assaying well  in gold.  The   principal   creeks   tributary  Fish   River,   on   which   mineral  bisen''.funnel, are  Pool.   Mohawk,   Lex  ington. Ruby Silver and Boyd Greeks  on   the   east   side,   and-   JMenhenick,  Scott.   Sable,   McRae   and JMcDougal  Greeks, oh the west side.  '....I'OOL'CllKEK  It is situated at the head of Fish  River Canyon, about seven miles from  Gomaplix and Thompson's Landing.  Some very promising properties are  located on this creek, five groups of  claims having recently been bonded.  At the head of Pool Greek is the Wide  West Group of four claims. This  group lias a very big showing of ore,  aosayiiig well iu gold, silver, copper  and lead.  The Lardeau-Goldsinith Group of  four claims has some very high grade  silver ore. A 50-foot tunnel has been  driven on this property.  The ilunleraiid Trapper Group of  three claims, situated just south of the  Wide West Group, has an open cut  put in on the lead, and is showing up'  some very lino grey copper ore.  These group.-, situated near the.head  of Pool .Greek, on the south side, ate  properties of great merit. Tbe owners,  who are Kos&land people, have ju.*t  completed a large cabin, and will  commence operations in t he spring.  Tiie A liuu Group, three claims and a  fraction, situated further down Pool  Greek, has a very good showing of ore.  Development work will be started on  this group in the spring.  The Western Star Group of two  claims, situated on the same lead as  the Alma and Black Bear, is another  promising location.  Further down Pool Greek, about 2J-.  miles from its mouth, is the Pontine  Group of live claims. This is a free-  miii'mg proposition, located late last  November.  The Gonsnl Group, situated just below the Pontine Group, lias a large  quartz lead carrying silver and copper.
