L  mps  IS  considerable prominence the <inee famous  placer diggings of the Bi������-'Bend' The9e  rich auriferous gravels, thirty-five  years ago' the scene of a stampede,  which anticipated in many features  the recent rush to the Klondike, are  found on the creeks' which head-in  Ground' Hog, basin, some 70 miles  north of Revelstoke. The "Basin"-  really consists" of. flve cup shaped  depressions on the summit ot the  range, which represent the bed of a  ancient glacier of great extent. This  glacier "with the exception of a few-  detached portions has melted away  and bre-ikiiiK up, slid down in five directions, forming the gulches through  which the three principle creeks run  which drain thc mountains into the  Columbia and Gold Stream. The  creeks are French creek, McCullongh  creek. Camp creek, Eight Mile creek  and Ten Mils,.creek.", fcreiich creek*  was the'Dawson ot the stampede.  The first discovery was in'65, at the  time when the OM'iboo excitement was  ut ils hight and' the chief rush was  made iu ths following year,, when  several thousand miners..Hocked in  fiom the south liy steamer and from  the west hy a trail - constructed from  Seymour it thehead nt the" Seymour  ���������armvof'^huswBP^'lake.io.lApoy.teon  the Columbia river. Placer mining  was in'its infancy and the, methods  were crude. But on French and Mc-  Cullou-h creeks the bedrock was only  lightly covered with waste and lhe  digging* * were easy to work. The  results obtained in the short time,  during whicli the stampede lasted were  enormous,  French   creek   is reported  to  have  yielded $3_*,U00 in 1805 and   $100,000 in  1860.     Four,  six  and    even     twelve  ounces to the hand a day were obtained on   some  claims  and   one nugget  worth    $253 was found.   Its neighbor  ���������Mc  Cullough  creek,   is credited with  another $100,000 in 1806  and  some of  it's claims yielded $100  a  day  to the  hand.   Ou French creek a small town  sprung up and a saw mill was put in  and n very lively mining camp wilh all  the usual concoinmitants was in existence, while  deymour  at the bead of  Shuswap lake was another prosperous  town as the basis of supplies  for the  goldtields.   But the era of prosperity  and activity  was  brief.       The high  price    of  provisions    and necessities  rendered it only possible to work the  very   "richest^-t*laims,^~which~80on"  became exhausted and by the fall of  '67 the miners  had  all "drifted away  either  going  back   south   down   the  found on bedrock anil in the lower  gravels was found to lie all coarse and  though their tailing." have heen frequently tested no fine gold wns found  to occur. Aliove the French Creek  Hydraulic company'.-, ground, a creek  claim, the "Consolation" has been  worked for several years by means of  drifts and shafts with good results;  bedrock gravel yielding on an average  nf $2.50 per yard: the gold here if.  also very coarse many of the nuggets  being of the value of from $50 to $75.  The formation throughout the district is the same, that is to say Micaceous and schistose slates, quattzites  and shales, carrying pyritic and  magneUiid iron ores and large quantities of oxides. The rocks are metamiir-  phic and lie almost horizontal. The  glacier in its downward progress  ground up the rocks which formed its  bed and tho waters flowing from the  melting mass, moving round and under  Ihem, further tore away the-Toniiatinn  forming the gulches ancl valleys  through which the present creeks run  and cariying down with them the  gravels and muds which contained the  gold. It was in the surface rocks of  this ancient formation in which the  gold, occurring in the creek gravels,  was originally deposited being freed  (or deposited) from the chlorides by  the oxigination and not in the veins us  is generally supposed, although there  I he west hide nf the Colnnihia, between  Golds)renin and the mouth ol Canoe  river, in all of whit h pay , gravel has  been found and all are woll wot thy oi  more careful attention from prospectors.  It is certain that theie are few districts in Kootenay ollering greater  attractions both t.o prospectors and  mining men as far as placer propositions are concerned lhan the one  which is the subject of the above  sketch. Now that, the initial dilTlcul-  ties in the way of transportation and  communication, which have deterred  both classes from thoroughly exploring the district, and attempting to  work its already known resources of  rich pay gravel, are to bo so soon  overcome by the launching of a  steamer to'inuku regular trips on the  upper river, there is little doubt that  the wealth tuken out of the creeks  during the old time stampede will be  far exceeded by the returns which  modern and scientific methods will  extract from nature's extensive  deposits of golden treiisurein the beds  of the ancient glacial streams of the  famuos Big Bend camp.  smallpox epidemic is over I hul, Dr..).

The other creeks named were alse  worked to some extent but owing to  the greater depth to bedrock, not  much.was done, though, where the  wash was not too heavy and bedrock  was reachable without sinking and  drifting, that is wherever the gravel  could be worked by ordinary ground  sluicing, as good results were obtained  as on French Creek and McCullongh  Creek. The ancient beds of these  creeks were untouched in those days,  being covered by large deposits of  glacial and slide debris.  But little work of  uny   importance  was done on tbe Big Bend placiers till  in 1879 a company obtained the Ophir  lease on McCullough Creek for hydraulic   purposes  aud   installed   a   plant.  Their plant was very   inefficient  and  was handled by incompetent men  and  only 500 feet of their  ground' in   one  bed of the creek was   gone  over.     In  the flrst  year  their    returns    were  $50,000 in spite of  the  disadvantages  they were   working   under.     In   the  following spring a slide occured in the  creek which covered  up   their   plant  and filled in the ground they had gone  over and owing to a lack of funds and  internal   dissensipn   the   claini    was  allowed to lapse.   Nothing more  was  done until 1807 when a   Chicago   company purchased   rights    on    French  Creek and commenced operations.    In  1808. lute in July, tlieir plant  (a   very  extensive   one) was   installed   under  Californian management and  though  lhey commenced late in the year  and  owing to various causes   only worked  over a small area of ground  and  that  areveihsin the district also carrying  valuable, deposits. As the creeks  heading in Ground Hog Basin have a  common origin the supposition would  naturally seem to be that there would  be very little difference in their bedrock values. The surface values at all  events whether of the bench gravels or  the higher lying first' glacial deposits  deposits have a general average of  from 15 to 25 cents per cubic yard.  At the present time the principal  placer operations going on in the Big  Bend are on the Ophir claini a the  mouth of McCullongh and Smith creek  which empties into' the Columbia  opposite the mouth ot Goldstream and  has not so far come within the scope  of this article. At the Ophin, which  has been acquired and is being operat  ed as a hydraulic proposition by parties . from the Okanagan, a flume was  built last year and the-gravel is being  put through it now, hut there has been  no^clwin,up '.yejt,, so that; this"resii.lt  'remains "in abeyance.' ' There" was  plenty of money taken out of the old  workings and there seems no reason to suppose that now under more  favorable conditions the .results will  not he equally favorable.  Ou Smith creek there are now two  companies   at  work,   the Revelstoke  Syndicate   owning    the    Revelstoke  claim and the Duquesne Mining Co., of  Pittsburg,   Pa.,    which    owns   three  claims immediately above it.    On the  Revelstoke quite a large quantity of  gold was taken out of oue small area of  exposed  bedrock  last  year  and   the  indications     throughout     the    high  level gravels have been excellent.   The  Duquesne Co. is. only just  getting to  work.   Throughout the whole course  of the creek the prospects in the gravel  are far superior to any of those found  in the high level wash of the famous  Williams.    Lightning    and     Grouse  creeks   is   Cariboo.     A  writer in the  Engineering and Mining Journal who  is   well  acquainted ��������� with the general  features of the auriferous creeks of the  Big  Bend district and especially with  Smith creek saysin the issue of May 8,*  -1807.-������������������iThe-Big_Bend_couiitry___.tin.s  been known  to  be auriferous for the  last thirty years or more.  The country  was   pretty  thoroughly, traversed by  prospectors in. the  early  days, but,  with   the   exception  of  the finds on  Freuch creek,' no diggingsw ere found  that could be woikedat-a profit with  access    so ������ difficult    and    supplies  so  high.        Even    now     practically  the only   prospecting   that  has  been  done has heen on streams emptying into the Columbia river,' and for only a  few miles  from their  mouth.    Again  prospecting has been confined almost  exclusively to auriferous graeuls, little  or no attention being paid  to ledges.  In mining the gravels of the streams,  not only of those on which placers  ait  being worked,  but on others as well,  there is found among the blai k   sand  a liberal sprinkling of galena.   Considering how soft and friable this mineral  ia,  it seems as if it must have a pretty  extensive source in   order  to show   a  abundantly as it does.    In the lower  sands,    the    "blue    gravel"    of    the  Californian?, there is also found much  pyrite,      chalcopyrite      and      other  sulphides.    These are without exception,   so far as the.writei's experience  goes,     auriferous.     Whether     these  auriferous and argentiferous sulphides  come  from   extensive   and   workable  veins or from small stringers no oue is  as  yet  able  to say for certain.   Near  Smith creek several irregular veins in  hydro-mica slate  have been found to  carry gold in their iron sulphides,  but  no  large workable   veins  have been  found.     Owing  to the  difficulties of  gaining access to the mountaius, but  little thorongh prospecting  has been  done save for placer gold."  Ou Fernie creek which joins the  Columbia about eight miles above  Smith Creek and on the same, the  west side, coarse gold has been found  and in the early days $8 a dav apiece  was made by four men for one whole  season.

However  brief it may be.  if only for twenty minutes, il seems to  lhe Hekali; that the occasion  is one,  which  Revelstoke cannot afford Lo lei  xytf: by   without  marking it* as a  very  special one.    This is the only considerable point in Wesi Kooteniiy at which  the royal party will even  touch and il  may   be   taken for {-.ranted thut llicie  wiii be a large  number  of  visitors to  the town to   catch a  sight of the Empire's future King  and   Queen.   Why  should   we   noi endeavor to   improve  the opportunity ?   In the first place of  course we must testify by every means  in our power to our own sense   ol"   the  greatness of the occasion,    We ought  to lose no time in communicating with  the proper authorities to get his royal  highness' consent to receive an address  here.   Besides this it is difficult to say  what can be   done  for the short stay,  wliich will he  allotted  to   this place.  We   can   parade   the  hand   and   the  school children and do   what  decorating    is     possible    and perhaps     the  Revelstoke company of R. M. R. will  be reorganized hy that time and ready  to   furnish   a   guard   of honour at the  station.   But in the Hehald's opinion  we ought to mark Lhe day with  something mote than a big  splurge  fur n  few  minutes  at   tiie  station.    There  will doubtless be a number of visitors  to town and if we provide some   extra  attractions we can   very easily induce  more to come.   With our usual luck  the  actual   day of   the arrival   of lhe  royal parly is likely to   be a   Sunday.  But   we   could   make either  the   day  before   or after a holiday,   even if this  does happen to he the case and it must  be remembered in this connecticn that  thi** actual   dates   of   the   programme  depend altogether on the date   of   the  arrivnljof the Ophir-.t Qui b.*c and even  "Then   it   has   to -"be  submitted  to the  approval of his loyal  highness.     But  even   if   it *hould be so we   eau hold a  holiday   either   on , the   .Saturday    or  Monday and   provide  a programme of  rtiniiseuienl;. wliich will help  to -.well  the croivd of vi*-ilor> to the town.    We  might  lo  reserve  all imr eneigieo thiis  <->  year in the way of celebration:- fur lhis  i.ecasiou. \v hen   the   i-yes of all Kimle-  nay will naturally he turned   thi-. wiy  and we shall   have   a    tinifjii'..   chance,  without   a    po*->ibilily   of   intei fering  w ith any other point, of thawing u hiir  tiond of visitor-, .mil having a celebr.i-  lion here that will dn rn-dil   to,Revel-  Moke.

Some of these  bodies are now on stiike in sympathy  with the machinists.

Such were  lhe words of Peter Larb, Black Pete,  us be was commonly called, and the  (hiding of a rudely drawn sketch of  the vicinity which lie made, and his  retenl death of four score yens of age,  recalls an incident in his life, related by  him ten yeai'sago while he and the  wviter were hauling h:������y one day.  Wu were talking mines and mining,  and we asked lhe quaint old man il  he had ever a chance lo make ii stake,  or heard ofthe Losl Cabin claim about  wliich so much has been said, surmised  and written, when he allured the  above quoted words and added: "I  believe I. saw the place once, and  think 1 could find it again." Knowing  that the old man would tell his story  without urging and in his own way,  we did not press him for its recital but  waited till the spirit moved him to  speak.  "I have lived  off   and   on   about   15  years with the Blackfeet Lillians"   he  said.    "IMiuiy years ago 1,   with about  150 lodges of them, wintered on a little  creek   near   Chief   Mountain     where  there was plenty of wood,   and   there  we hunted elk and hul.'nlo.   while   our  women dressed robes and   made   pem-  niican.    lt was a very mild winter, the  ground scarcely froze, and   very   little  snow fell even in the nioiinliaiis, so we  had a good time,  as  game   was   very  plenty all round  us.     We   had   heard  lint back in the mountains there were  some white men living in a cabin   who  were taking money out of the ground,  and I had planned with   some   of   the  Blackfeet to visit  them  sometime   in  the future.   One day a small war party  of Kooleiiais came to our  camp   with  scalps of three white men, saying they  had   killed   them   in   the    ni.iuutains  about two days' travel from where we  were camped.    They also brought two  horses   with   them   which   they   said  tliey had laken from the men, but had  left one wliile animal with ears  like   a  moose of which they were   afraid   because it looked very fierce and made  a  lerrible   noise.     They   had   buckskin  hags filled with heavy dust, gold  dust,  I tell you, and chunks of   it.   too.      ll  was spring   then   and   the   grass   had  started to grow.    I proposed   lo   some  of the Hlickfeel. lhat we   follow   their  trail back, and see I'or ourselves   what  was theie, and bury the dead men   the  Kootenais had left on  lhe   ground,   so  next day we started, rode all day.   and  al night camped by a small lake in  the  mountains.    Next day we took up  the  trail again and went around a swampy  piece of giound at the head of the lake  through which a stream ran.     In   this  swamp were many  beaver.      Wu   fol-  Dr^Gr^TIVC'v- ba"v"t*^"|mvrell"llii*_slrt!7iiiriirwhoi'e���������ir-forkedr  and the trail went up  the   right   hand  iiranch.    This   again   forked   and   we  followed the trail up lhe lel'l hand one  to the fool of a   very   high   mountain.  Tliei-e in a lillle park on   the   banks of  the stream, we found the cabin,  about.  :. o'clock   in   the   afternoon.      It   was  built of logs, covered   wilh   dirt,   and  had a hole cut in the side for a window,  and the door was made of an elk's hide.  There wu found   the   dead   men.   two  outside and one within shot  to   death  and scalped.
