HUME  &C0  No. 3 Vein on the Goldfinch  Proving Richer With Depth-  Wonderful Strike on the Commander Claim in Oyster Group  Tlie prophecy ol" the Herald some  weeks ago Unit tlie Fish Kiver free-  milling gold camps would out rival  Cripple Creek. the richest, gold  camp ou llie continent up tn the  pres-ont, i.s being fully. verified hy  development. Every foot of development work, now being done on the  Camborne, Oyster, Eva and imperial  groups is proving the pciin.-ineiicy  of the leads and the givater richness  of the gold ore bodies as depth is  attained.    On the  OAMHORNK GROUP.  the work of development is being  pushed with great vigor under the  management of A. F. Rosenberger and  with astonishing results. The crosscut on the No. '3 vein on the Goldfinch  claim, which on the surface was of  rather lower grade than the other  veins, of which' there are eight in  number, distinct ami parallel to each  other, has proved this ledge to he very  rich at a few feet in depth. Mr.  Rueenberger who has just returned to  the camp from a week's visit lo Nelson  was in receipt of the news of the success of the cross-cut on this ledge and  is naturally very jubilant.  THE   OYSTER G110UP.  There was great excitement in the  camp on Tuesday evening when the  report of the new-strike on the Criterion, one of the chief claims ofthe  Oyster group, was brought into town  by T. Rosen berger, the foreman ofthe  Oyster group, and a brother of A: F.  Rosenberger, manager of these gold  properties. Mr. Rosenberger also  brought in some very rich samples,  which the Hkrald is informed are  the richest yet brought ^ down from'  Eva hill.' "      .  KVA   AND  IMPERIAL GKUPS.  ' Work on these groups is continuing  under the management" of Mr.. Gracey  for the London & D. CI 'Goldfields Co..  of London, "England.- of "which com-  p.iiiy J." Roderick Robertson of Nelson,  is the resident general'iuanager. The  showing under development:of these  two groups.is satisfactory to the new  company and the payments accruing  in the ideal will be' paid ard the  pioperty put into shape for milling. A  stamp mill will be erected at' Camborne for .the purpose of treating the  rich . oie from these groups. The  people of Camborne ' and the gold  districts are jubilant over the prospects of the immediate success of the  three banner groups of the district.  To Air. Rosenberger the flourishing  prospects of the camp are argely due  since it was he personally who introduced considerable capital into the  camp, in which he is now heavily  interested himself, with a full assurance that he is' placing his money and  mining ability at the disposal of the  richest gold fields on the continent.  Camborne Notes  A. L. Kin until is busily engaged in  erecting a telephone line to Camborne  to connect the goldfields .vith the out-  -side-woi'ld.*���������=-The ^telephone��������� line-is  lieing erected by the Big Bend Telephone Co., of which *W.- Cowan is the  manager.' Af.''Al. Buchanan's new  building for the telephone exchange is  just about completed."  A. A. . Clark's new store is being  rushed to completion and when finished will be occupied by Air. Clark: as* a  general store.  B. IS. Drew & Co. are making improvements to their premises to cope  with the largely increasing trade  occasioned by its rush of mining men  into the camp.  The Eva hotel the handsome new  structure erected by J. H. Gray will  be completed about the 15th inst.,  when it is Air. Gray/s intention to  have a' grand opening, of which  further notice will be given.  XV. Holloway is down from Sable  creek, on which he reports the strike  of a fine ledge of gold ore near the  Trilby groups, the property of the  Donble Eagle Co.  Air. E. Nelson Fell, general manager of the famous Athabasca free  milling mine on Toad Alt. near Nelson  came in on Thursday -with Air. A. F.  Rosenberger to look over the country  generally. He visited-the Oyster and  Camborne group with Mr. Rosenberger on his arrival.  feot, the miners are toiling with pick  and drill and blast. The discovery ol  mineral was made here in April, 1S70,  and since that date theproductivenost  of the mines and the working of them  have continued unabated.  The galena, or lead ore, i.s the  ordinary load sulphide (PbS). It .is n  dark bluish black in color and is  usually found in the form of cubes,  varying in size from a pinhead to  blocks six and eight inches across,  their face. There are also found here  two, and in some localities three zinc  ores, though the most important one  is the common zinc sulphide (LnS),  containing about 07 per cent metallic  zinc. When first brought to the stir-  face its colors are widely diversified,  many blocks forming the most beautiful specimens imaginable. Some retain their brilliancy indefinitely,  others again lose their bright hues  after a short exposure to the at mos-  phere. The miners have coined  names for these multicolored ores and  they are known respecively as "rosin  jack," "gray jack," "black jack,"  "peacock jack," etc., the last named  possessing colors with wliich the rainbow cannot vie.  The crushers or mills throughout  the district .are capable of crushing  nnd cleaning, during a shift of ten  hours from 50 to 100 tons of ore-bearing rock at a cost ranging from $10 to  .$14 per ton, much depending on the  richness of the dirt and the facilities  for rapid handling. There, are now  in'the district more than 100 mills, the  greater part of them having been  erected during the vears 1.399 and  1900.  Antwerp ia Belgium is progressing  rapidly to the front as a consumer of  American zinc, more than 1000 tons  per week going to one firm alone in  that city. It is fully believed by all  the producers and operators that this  immense foreign demand, notwithstanding the shipping rate of about $6  per ton, will very effectually regulate  the price of zinc ore in the-United  States.  QUEEN VICTORIA  HOSPITAL  First , Annual    Report  of   the  Board of Trustees. d\  REPORT OP THE PROVINCIAL BOARD  The Provincial Board, nf Trustees  have held three meetings and'expel-  ienced considerable difficulty in getting a quorum at eacli, especially the  last. Their-labors summed up have  resulted, in the securing of it, $1500  grant from the Victorian Order of  Nurses through Lady Minto. the passing of a, treasury voucher for $40C0  from the Provincial 'government, the  arrangement to purchase "a site self  ected by the site committee for $1000,  the clearing of same for which it is  indepted and expresses thanks to the  trackmen and ,C. P. R. shopmen, represented ' by Messrs. Graham and  Temple, correspondence for plans of a  $7,000 building, framing of a set of bylaws and appointment of a ladies  committee representing all denominations of the city, who have done  splendid work for the proposed institute ion". ~    ~    "~~   ~     ' ~7"  SUBSCRIPTIONS.  Tbe grants and subscriptions to the  hospital amount to $8,041.75, made up  as follows:  Prov. Govt, grant ] $4,000 00  V. O.N.grant  1,500 00  Revelstoke subscriptions 2,511 75  ZINC MINING IN KANSAS.  Harry L. Wohlford in Scientific  American says that from a small triangular area in Southeastern Kansas���������  perhaps six miles wide at its base and  ten miles high along its side���������there  havo been mined, during a period, of  twenty-four years, lead and zinc ores  to the value of more than thirty million dollars. The entire region presents a most curious aspect to the  mining man from farther west. On  the surface may be seen tho farmer  busy with - his grain or among his  stock, whilo beneath him fifty, a hundred,  and sometimes  two    hundred  Total..... $8,041 75  Owing-to a regrettable difference  over the matter of site, culminating in  a petition now to hand,.the sum ot  $248 in - local subscriptions is  threatened with loss and the influence and support ' of 27 non-subscribers is denied. It is much to be  hoped that these petitioners will reconsider their views and,join us,-without reference to location, in building a  new hospital at the place where it is  so very badly needed. It should' be  added here that it is guaranteed by  Mi*. McCarty to raise additional subscriptions to cover t^his amount.  LADIES COMMITTEE.  It was very pleasant to note bv wav  of contrast the enthusiastic work of  the Ladies committee, which, wilh  Mis. J. E. Carruthers as president, has  not only canvassed the town well,  getting together a subscription list of  $598.75. of which 329.75 is paid, bul  which also is laying plans for further  work, that will, without doubt, further  augment our list, by, say, $500 more.  In > acknowledgment of the * ladies  good work it is expected that a section  will be found in the bylaws recognizing them as oflice', holders of this  institution. Steps-have lieen taken,  with what success it is yet too early  to say. but we hope for a favorable  reply, to try and get Lady Alinto to  perform the first function in connection with the hospital at the time o'  the visit to Canada of H. R. H��������� the  Duke of York.  In conclusion it should be stated  that through the generosity of the  citizens tha hospital has been presented with a well equipped and handsome ambulance and that bv the  kindness of Mr. Kilpatrick. chaiiman,  who applied his subscription to pay.  "lent of freight charges withfeonsr ntof  the Board, the vehicle is now available  in case of accident.  B. R. Atkins,  Hon. Sec.'Treas.  Aug. 5tb, 1901.

John AIcKane arrived in .Nelson  this week from the Lavina group in  ���������the Lardo which he is developing.  Ho reports that'the sacking of ore has  been commenced and that the estimate  of the engineer is that upwards of  2000 tons of sorted ore will be shipped  from the property this winter. There  is already a, large quantity .of ore out  on the dump, but it will be impossible  to move it till the snow comes. The  main vein on the group carries a  galena ore in which .occurs a large  quantity of, chloride of silver. Thi.s  ore it is expected .will average $150 to  the ton* . It is upon this vein that the  principal work has been done and a  little figuring will show that 2000 tons  of such ore will turn into large figures.  There is another smaller vein upon  the property- froin" which'- some A'ery  high grade copper ore'has been taken,  tint so far the management ofthe  Lavina have not' taken it into account.  Samples taken from this vein have  given an. indicated value of 20 per  cent copper.    .  , Two hundred coke oven laborers -of  the Dominion Steel Co., Sydney, N.  S. are on strike for an increase of  wages.  Personal Paragraphs Pertaining to Railway Men Picked up  By the Herald.  Tin* Order of Railway Clerks nf  America will hold their lirst convention at St. Louis during tho latter  |iart of October. Tlio order, though  less than two years in existence i.s  increasing very rapidly.  II. W. D. Armstrong of tho C. P. R.  engineering department .says that  good progress i.s being made with the  000 foot tunnel wliich the C. P. R. is  building on tbe loop 217 miles this side  of DuniiKiro Junction. Contractor  Olson, who has this work in hand, i.s  now in 100 foul on Iho east end of the  work and work has been started on  the west ond in the way of erecting a  portal. This tunnel was contemplated  when the Crow's Nest line was undor  construction, but as it would take  considerable time a temporary line  was built first. The tunnel when  built will shorten tho line by half a  mile and will effect a considerable  saving in time and operating expenses.  General Alanager AIcNicol wen I  through on his way back to Montreal  on Thursday. On thc samo train were  the deputation of the railway trainmen, whom he refused to see at  Vancouver, a course of action on his  part which has aroused intonso indignation among the railway men out  west. ���������  Alelville Downie, who has "bsen acting as express messenger on tho  Crow's Nest Pass for some timo," has  accepted^ the position of mail cierk  on the C." P. R. He will bo stationed  on tho run between Vancouver and  Calgary for a month, and then" on his  old route. XV. AlcCandlish has heen  appointed to ^fill the. vacancy. caused  by his transfer.'  E. AI. Burns of,the G. N. R. start in  ���������Vancouver has"--.been--'appointed city  pas'soiig-er ��������� agciit for- tho Norfcliorn  Pacific in Victoria.  Railway mail clerks, running west  of Ottawa, have asked Hon. W. Mulock to endeavor to do something to  settle the trackmen's strike,- as the  tracks have become unsafe for travel.  While a special train for the north  was being mado up is, Regina on Alonday last a brakesman named Alex.  Morrison got his head severely   crush  ed. His injuries wero dressed by Dr.  Low, and he was able to return to his  homo at Aloose Jaw.  R. XV. Dibb, wiper at tho C. P. R.  shops at Revelstoke, who wa.s laken  into the Kamloops hospital last Wed  nesd.'iy, buffering from severe burns  on the hands, is reported to be  progressing nicely.  J. II. McGill of the* C. P. Si. boarding cur department at Kamloops, is  just now an inmate of the Jubilee  Hospital, Victoria, where be will  undergo an operation for appendicitis-  Word comes from London to Montreal through tho medium of a privato letter that during the approaching visit of the Duke of Cornwall and  York, Mr. T. G. Shaughnessy, president of tho C. P. 11. will receive the  honor of knighthood. The letter is  not u ii official ono but the source of information i.s said to be good.  Three important changes have been  announced in thc official-staff at the  Canadian Pacific railway depot in  Winnipeg by General Superintendent  Leonard. IS. A. James, has been  appointed superintendent of transportation wilh headquarters in Winnipeg; Robt. Pcard, superintendent of  lines running out of Brandon; Jas.  Alanson, superintendent of lines'run-  ning out of "Winnipeg.  Dr. Alexander Scott of Glasgow  made the assertion at t.he recent meeting of the British Medical Association  in London that most railway accidents  were due to neurosis of railway men,  caused by the nerve tension of their  duties. To prove this he cited many  cases which had come under his own  observation. One case citej was that  nf a signal man who was found on the  floor in convulsions. When he was  able to speak he said he never entered  the signal box without feeling that he  was" on the brink of a precipice and  lhat some day a disaster would occur.  Dr. Scott referred to the Slough accident. In this case the engineer  declared that he did not know how he  had'run past the danger signal. The  jury found that tho engineer had been  afflicted for a moment with aberration  of the mind, yet this same|man had  conveyed over 150,000,000 passengers  without a single mistake';-'  "'" " -  A report is iu circulation in Winni  peg to the ell'ect that the royal visitors  would not come west. _ No official  notification has been received in Can-  add yet'that their Royal Highnesses  will, not go through to the Pacific  coast. The report is persistently  circulated however, that, owing to  the death of the Empress Frederick,  and the possible dangers of travelling  west while the trackmen's strike * was  still on, the - visit will be postponed  indefinitely.

Saturday, August 10, 1001.  A ROYAL TRAGEDY.  J.su*-t   Monday   passed   away iiluiost  alone in the hideous and gloomy royal  civile at* Cronberg. one of the cleverest  nnd most* unhappy women   in   liurope  Her   wits   seated   her husband on the  Imperial throne or Germany in spile of  the   Iron   Chancellor  and   thu  whole  German court parly and afU'i' a liiiiuly  nine   days  reign   tliu   hand   nl" death  swept   aside  her   plans   like   u child's  house of cards.    Fur plans,   though it  may never be known now   what   they  were,   she   certainly had.    It   was nut  merely   to   have  her ears tickled with  the title of empress that she schemed  and   intrigued   to   set her husband on  the   throne  in defiance  of   the law nl  Prussia   that   no prince,   can   hecoinn  king, who isafllicted with an incurable  disease.   Plans   she  hail, plans of life  work  in conjunction  with   her  noble  spouse, plans   for  the amelioration   of  the condition of the  German   masses,  which, it she had been enabled to carry  them out, mighthave placed her on a  pedestal of national alVeetion and gratitude as lofty as that occupied   by   her  great mother.   And yet'now strangely  diirerenther late, dying alone, bioken  hearted, abandoned by   her  own   son  and   despised   and   haled by the very  people, whom it was her dearest,   longing to  be allowed to serve.   Surely   a  strange mystery  of   human fate,   this  tragedyof life upon a throne.  Mining Uecord points out that wilh  "liie low price of silver, the decline in  lend and llu; fact* lhat the United  States no longer'needs B.C. ores and  thnt coiilractsare now based nn the  London market price," 'our silver-lead  ores must be'eilhi'i* exceptionally rich  or exceptionally easy to work to  remain profitable under present con-  ditit'in*!. .The. Uecord goes on in point  out thim in order luenable us tn compete on equal terms in the production  ol'silver and lpndtheeslahlishment.nl'  home smelting and refining works is an  absolute necessity. But what lhe  Ilicr.Ai.D wiiuld like to further insist  upon is that if wu are going to depend  ou private en let-prize to give us  smellers and refineries we are leaning  on a broken reed. The smelling business on this continent is now under  one management, which .as we have  lecently found out lo our cost I hereby  controls not only (he smelling bul  the mining industries of lhe  coiinlry. The      moment       any  privately    owned   smelling  industry  in Isnnlcn.'iy begins fo  itilci'l'erc   with  llie plans  nl"   litis   iii.'inageinenl.   lhey  will find n way eilher In slarve it   mil  nr buy   it nut.

TT.hAS.  Petition   That   "Was    Intended  ���������for���������Presentation--Last---Night  at the Council.  There was no meet-ii-? of the city  council last night. At the' hour of  opening only Aid. .Mc~Lend and Nettle  were present, though AM. Taylor ������nd  Ahiahiimson drove up shortly .ifler. ;  There were quite a nuinhei* of citizens  piesent t" attend the meetinR. some  heiiiR there to present a petition n*-  giudinpr thc Yvatorwork**!. which was in  circulation yesterday afternoon and i.*?  Hiv-en liulow-, and others in connection  with n kick which Xo. 2 fire brigade  wishes to register on the sutne t,uiij*>ct.  Great disappointment was felt fin  account of there being no meeting.  The petition, which it was intended to  present, was f-igned last night by  between 40 and Ti) ratepayers ind is  still in circulation. It reads as follows:  PETITION.  To the Municipal Council of the City  Kevelstoke.  Gentlemen,���������The undesigned residents and ratepayers of the city or  KevelMi.oUe beg to draw your attention  to thu following facts nnd ask your  early action with reference to irr.piov*  ing the existing condition of a tf airs:  I. fn the opinion of yonr petitioners the waterworks system as at  present constructed and managed is  almost useless either for domestic use  or for fire purposes, nnd should either  be greatly improved or substituted by  anew system that wilr afford somethinglike an adequate supply of water  for domestic and fire pin poses. Thc  present dam and reseivoir are in a  disgraceful condilinu and theie i.s not  at the present time enough water in  the reservoir to surply a hose line for  ten minutes, -which means that we are  in imminent danger of being swept by  fire at any moment with no means of  preventing it. This is a serious condition of nfTftirs for our city to be in  nnd one demanding immediate action  on the pait of those representing us in  council.  We are of thi* opinion that the present works should not be. acquit ed by  tiio city at all' but that the water  company should be forthwith notified  to fiirnNh a proper supply of water  for domestic and lire protection  purjios'***, and that in the event of  failure, on their part to supply such at  once or within a reasonable time,   the  This deficiency in onr water supply-  is a very serious matter, and the  pr-titinn, as will he seen from the list  of names attached, was a weighty and  iinpni-iiinl one. It is lo be legrctted  that I here was no council meeting at.  which our city fathers might have  met the pt'titioneis und discussed llie  unit ter wilh Lheni. The failure (o  hold a meeting has led to a. good denl  " of feeling mid t'dk and dor.e no good lo  city should put in a water plant of  own constructed on proper   lines   ;  with an adequate supply of  water  hind it and if the city's <:redit will  its i anybody  nd j __"   lA\%%'BrUWiWi%  permit of that being done by tiie city. ! ^  then the city should invite .some pr'.- '%0  v.ite company to take the matter in  hand and furnish the supply. Wo  ask that immediate action be taken at  once lo protect our property from  lire. {Sgd) Horace Manning, U. ffow-  son, (.'. St. MacDonald, XV. M. Ijiw-  renre. R. S. Wilson, F. Buker, M. A.
