The Triune lessees have another 20  ton shipment, ready for the packet' and  freighter. They will, if possible, hnvo  100 tons down to Ten-Mile before snow  flies.  The Bugle is Informed on fairly  good authority lhat the Silver Oup  people have decided to get down to  business, in tbe matter of ore shipping,  unci w ill take out at least loOOtons this  winter. The Gup ore nets about $180  to the ton, ho that even without a railway there is a Rood margin to work  on, The gold values���������from $10 to $2dp  found in the Cup ore makes it a smelling proposition. Under Supt. McNeill  the banner mine of the Lardeau has  been systematically developed and  there is enough ore blocked out to ship  20 tons or more a day all winter if  expedient.  The Black Bear Mining company,  operating at the forks of a tributary of  Pool creek, over the summit, norlb-  east nf Fei-^uson, is making a test,  shipment, this week, sayH.Supl. Woods,  C E. Work is heing vigorously  pushed ahead, preparatory to the  winter. They will continue work all  winter with a good strong force, and  hope to inakesteady shipments, though  the property is or.ly one season old.

As will he seen in the report  Friday's council   meeting  the  of      the  proposed   purchas..'  Revelstoke   Water.   Power   &  nf  last  matter  of th ���������  Lit-ht.  Ci>,'s plant w������s postponed for a week  on a plea that a petition i.s iu circulation among the property owners  asking the council to put tbe matter  to tlie vote of the ratepayers by a  bylaw. The Hrrai.d considers that  petition or no petition, this should he  the coarse adopted by the. council.  This question is an exceedingly  momentous one and one which should  be thoroughly and publicly discussed  before any action is taken ,in the  matter. As the feeling nf the Council  tftandsat preseiit7"th*^^nrpositioii7"if*itT  is to he decided by them alone, will no  doubt he rejected. ' The Herald  thinks that it would he far better for  them to admit the other property-  owners to their share of the responsibility either one way or the other by  giving them an opportunity ,to . vote  fo* or against the purchase themselves.  RAM LAL'S TEA as a Package Tea  cannot be beat. It has no eqaal In the  Market, as a sample package will convince all lovers of good Tea.

We want to  get as -mii-h of the road finished before  snow flies as possible. The instructions are to secure the hest line for a.  permauent road. Such a matter a..  that is best left to the expert opinion  of tho surveyor. He will doubtless  weigh carefully the question as to  whether tlie old route" through the  canyon <������r a new one back on Unbend, above is the most suitable in  accordance with his instructions. All  we can ask him to do is to get over his  survey at this end with as much despatch as is compatible with thoroughness, so as to give ns a chance to get a  big slice of the work done this fall.  $i oo Tapestry- Carpets are Reduced to 75c  75c Tapestry Carpets are Reduced to 55c.  75c Hemp Brussels are Reduced to 60c.  65c Hemp Brussels are Reduced to 46c.  65c Union Ca-pets are Reduced to 60c.  55c Union Carpets are Reducee to 40c.

Dr, Weldon Will Come  Out By  Revelstoke.  John V. Smith returned on Monday  evening last with seven of the fifteen  men who composed the party which  accompanied him and Dr. R. C. Weldon, of Halifax, and his two sons to  the Tele Jaime Cucho mica minus. It  will be remembered the party left here  on the Oth of Jnlv with a large outfit  of supplies for the purpose of both examining aiul further developing the  mica diiposits in which tliey are interested in 1 hut section. The party  experienced considerable Impediments  in their progress over the trail, wnich  was found tn be nun rly impassable,  owning to the extreme stage of both  the main stream and its tributaries  at points where tliey are crossed by  the trail. II, was also found that  recent high winds had strewn the trail  with fallen timbers, which necessitated  heavy chopping, construction of  numerous small bridges across sloughs  and small streams and frequent rafting  and swimming the larger ones.  The advance party of five men who  were dispatched from here on the 12th  of June was over taken at Frank All-  ingliani'.s Bella Vista ranch. After  building several miles of trail at points  where the old trail has been entirely  washed away, the party reached the  second crossing of the North Thompson  River on the evening of the 2nd inst.  at which point 11 dugout was made  to convey the stuff to the Alb red a  side. The supplies running short it  was decided to utilize the stores on  hand to allow Dr. Weldon to visit the  mines. Mr. Smith therefore returned  as stated, and will likely leave again  about the 1st of September with a load  of supplies for the men who it is intended will remain in camp during the  >vinler, Dr. Weldon is expected to  to be in Revelstoke about the 25th inst.  via Canoe and tlie Columbia rivers.���������  Kamloops Sentinel.  0ATH-BREAK1HC BOERS  Lord   Roberts   will    Show    no   More  Leniency to Perjured Burghers  Pretoria, Aug. 20���������Lord Roberts'  new proclamation after reciting the  fact lhat many have bioken the oath'  to maintain neutrality, and tint the  leniency extended Lo the burghers is  not appreciated, warns all who break,  their oath in the future th'nf. they will  be punished by death, imprisonment'  or fine.
