HUME  &C0  The Only Arch Representative  of the Industry of the Province in Vancouver���������Splendid  "Shewing of Minerals of North  Kootenay, which Attracted  Great Attention.  Juntas iu thu agricultural sot*l ions  of thu Dominion wi* read ul* arches of  grain, hay and even in onu instance of  apples lining erected on I liu occasion of  thu royal visit, so the chiuf idua whicli  tlie .Mayor in designing tl,e Kevclsloliu  arch nt Vancouver endeavored lo convey was that it was erected by a  mining community, au itiua which was  in complete accordance wilh lhe  suggestion made al lhe stiirl in thc  in vital ion extended hy lhe Vancouver  committee to erect an" arch there for  thu royal reception. Thu main  features, thu big map of the district,  the pictures of placer mining and  prospecting and last but not least tbe  splendid showing of mineral specimens  from the Big Bend and Tjiirdeau which  were arranged on shelves ou the front  of the two side supports of the struct*  ute all combined to tell tlie same tale.  Another feature of the decoration of  lhu arch,was thu throe noble cariboo  heads furnished by Mr. .Edwards,  which spoke volumes for tho game  resources of the district*. The Mayor  intended to have men got up a.s prospectors posed at the foot of lhe arch in  order still further to emphasize the  mining feature and to typify the  class fiom whose hard work and  enterprise the mineral wealth displayed above took its rise but he failed to  achieve this part of his desigu. Instead  hu secured three of the oldest timers  he coiild lay hands on in Vancouver  and took his stand wilh them on the  platforms at tbe base of I he arch to  represent lhe pioneers of Oiriboo, to  Whom this province owes the commencement of its history as a mineral  producer.  -The arch was greatly admired and  Revelstoke* has no reason' Lo be  ashamed of the way iu which the town  was represented, especially as if was  the only one in the province to respond  to the Vancouver couimiltee's'invila-  tioh*..;'Mayor"To'wrilcy si'tit time-to  request Mayor Brown to leave.tlie ore  for permanent exhibit in the new city  library, which is being erected -in  Vancouver, but his worship thought a  more advantageous use could be made  of it by leaving it with Messrs. Beattie  & Lembke, a firm of live 'mining  brokers, who promised to display it in  the windows of their office on Hasting  street, and who will be on hand all lhe  tone to answer inquiries about it.  THE GOLDBUG  An Extension of the Goldfinch  Ledge, Owned by Revelstoke  Citizens���������$2,000 Ore Near the  Surface.  Andy .Edgar' returned on Monday  .night_fro:n_Eish__Creek^_whei'e_:.he_=had  beeiV looking after some mining  interests. Mr. Edgar with Messrs. G.  W. Thomas, E. McAdam. D. McCarthy  M. Hume and others are lhe owners  ofthe Goldbug group, situated directly  opposite tlie Goldfinch and about three  quarters of a mile distant from it. The  new strike 011 tbe Goldfinch of iS2S,000  free gold ore has enthused the owners  of lhe Goldbug, who this summer  discovered the Goldfinch ledges on the  Sadie and Jacob's Ladder, two of tbe  claims in" the group, on whicli golil-  beariug quartz that would assay aliout,  $2,000 to tbe ton was found at a depth  oflS inches-on the ledge. The Plain  Bill the other claim in tiie Goldbug  group has just recently been purchased  and the ledge ou it has been traced  out. Although no great amount of  work has been done, it is <; ute evident  that the ledges from tlii- Camborne  group cross thu wholu griui.j of claims  on lhe Goldbug pioperty. On the  Goldfinch claim, of which I lie Goldhng  group is an extension, theie are nine  distinct ledges, all * c.mying high  values in gold. Tbe owners of the  Goldbug have already'discoverod some  ot' these ledges from \\ hich some  ���������splendid samples of ore has been taken  and npxt year a.tlinrough examination  of tfie property v\ill be made to determine the extent of these ore bodies.  The HKBAr.n believes that the owners  have a splendid mining property in  the best free milling gold camp on the  continent iind their friends in town  hope that they will reap a rich reward  from their enterprise.  Unexplored Placer Fields  Speaking lo the Hkrald the other  daya well known Uig Bend mining  man took occasion to remark how  vitally important it is that this place  should not slacken ils efforts to open  up the navigation of the Upper C-o'-  uinbia. lie pointed out that there  exists a stretch of seventy or eighty  miles of country Iyinjr right iu the line  of the strike of the big placer discover  ies of British Columbia, in between the  Big Uu 11 tl placers on Goldstream and  .Smith Creek and the placer fields of  Cariboo. This vast stretch of country  is entirely unexplored and it oilers as  promising a field tor the placer prospector ns any in the west. If easy  connections were made by steamer  between Smith Creek and Kevelstoke  it would not only vastly facilitate the  coiiduui of lhe operations now going  on on the Duquesne .Mining Co's. and  F. Midi rly \s pi'iipui'ticts iu thai camp,  hut would certainly tend to Jopen up  lhe totally unknown stretch of country  lying l.o lhe north west of lhe rivei* to  tlie prospector, with every probability  of big results.  Duquesne Mining Company  K. A. Bradley, manager of tbe  PuqucMiu Mining Co's. placer pro-  perl ie:. ou Smith Creek, came in on  Monday with .1. Scuiuls. The machinery is nil in place anil Raymond Allen  has made a reiniukahly good job of  the woodwork on the wheel and  olher portions of the plant. Mr.  Bradley, who has inspected a large  number of placer mining -pliuils in  Cariboo and olher camps in the  province, considers that his company  possesses on Smith Creek one ofthe  completcst and most up to date plants  iu B.C. There will be from 12 to 20  men working on the Blue Jay this  winter. Yesterday afternoon Mr.  Bradley received word that lhe capital  of the company had been raised at a  general meeting from $100,000 to  SI,000.000, which means that they  intend to largely extend tlie field of  their operations iu the Big Bend.  23 Thousand to the Ton.  The ore from the new strike on the  Camborne group reported in our last  issue gave a return of $23,000 to llie  ion. Already there are a number of  inquiries for stock in the Northwestern  Development Syndicate, the owners of  the property. J. D. Sibbald is the  oliicial broker of the company here.   ���������  Camborne's Chances Good.  In an interview with the Nelson  Miner Mr. Galliher said that while in  Ottawa* he urged the claims of Camborne to a postoflice and is inhopes  that the department will open one up  in there.- "    *      ���������      ' -    .

The supplies aro  now all delivered for the winter's  work and development will bo carried  on all winter with an extra force of  men. The now strikes this fall on lhu  Iron Chest and Standard have utilised  a renewal of interest in the camp,  which continues to give indication.'*!  of thu biggest showing oi high grade  copper ore in the province. Jt is  likely at thu next ^meeting of tlio  directors of the Prince Mining and  Development Co. that the price of  shares will bo raised lo ."iO ct s. a uliarc,  a figure which is fully warranted hy  the big strikes made on the property  this year. The success of the Prince  Mining Co. means .a great, deal to this  city and the progress of the camp is  being watched with considerable interest by Kevelsioke citizens.

Clarke Wallace has  a high place in the estimation of Canadians who know bow to prize patriotism untainted with selfish desire or  rabid party loyalty. From a persona  aud from a party standpoint Mr. Wallace has a record which must appeal  to all fail-minded men. Xo man iu  Canadian politics ha*; sacrificed more *  personal considerations for what be  deemed tin* pubic good. He has been  loyal to the Conservative party only  when party loyalty could serve those  public ideals which he has emphasized  in his political career. When public  inlerest was thre.iteiteil in. a great  issue' Mr. Wallace nobly renounced  both party '.-ind personal interests.  That act alone earned bim the high  respect of the best sentiment in Canada. The independence which the  member for West York asserted, in  1S-00 he consistently upheld in opposition. Mr. Wallace has had a long  career of public usefulness, and it is to  be hoped that he may be spared for  many years to continue ir. the service  of his countrw"  Notice  All members of the Loyal Orange  Association aie lequested to attend  a special meeting of L.

The boat is finished as far as  it    can    be.   completed    without   thc  machinery, which i.s on   the way. and  even if not available for use  this year  -will be launched as soon as navigation  is possihle early next season.      This is  a step in advance of   iuiinunse importance lo Kovelstoke and the  .Big   Hend  district.   But we must not rest on our  oars for ev.cr after making this  spin t.

There are   large   areas   of   promising  looking   formation   quile   unexplored  and unprospected.

Thiirc has just heen withdrawn from  ssrvice in England one of tlie oldest  locomotives in existence. Up to a few  .wceks ago this engine, -which was constructed in 1S4G, was regularly employed for hauling mineral traffic upon  the BaiTow-in-Kuruess Railroad,  which-was one of the first railroads in  England, having been opened for  traffic for considerably more than half  a century. The total length of this  railroad is only 17 A miles, yet it is one  of the- most jn'olitahle lines in thc  United Kingdom, a fact due to a large  extent"t^rtlfe-heavy ittiifcral-trfillilT-'"  that it carries.  _. This engine, oflicially known as  "Number 3,'' but familiarly styled  "Old Coppernob," -from its curious  firebox, which is liuilt* of copper and is  dome-shaped, i.s the survivor of tbre������  similar engines that were built in the  early '10's for this railroad, though the -  two previous'engines were somewhat  smaller. Tlie cylinders are 14 inches  in diameter, with a 2-1-inch stroke.  The steam pressure was 120 pounds  per sijUiU'c ineh. The heating surface  ol" Iho tubes is S05 siiuare feet, and of  the lirebox 10 square feet. The total ���������  weight of the engine and tender in  working order was 32 tons S hundred  weight. The wheels are four coupled..  ���������I l'eet !) inches in diameter on the  I read, and the engine frames are nf  thc frame type, with upper a nil lower  members. " J'hc axle boxes are made  of guiiinetal. and the motion is of the  curved link type. The toiler is 11  feet 3 inches long and 3 feet 0 inches  in diameter. Tlie boiler plates are  made of Low Moor iron throughout,  with thu exception of the firebox, the  barrel being made up of three rings.  A curious feature of tlie tender of  the engine i.s that the under frame is  constructed entirely of oak. The tender has water capacity of one thousand  gallons. Altogether this old locomotive hiiH been regularly running" for  over 33 years. AVhen withdrawn from  the service it was found to be  thoroughly strong and perfect in every  rospeet* The working parts were in  first-class condition. Although old-  fashioned in design and pattern, it  was a very serviceable engine, and an  idea of the serviccableness of this type  of locomotive may be gathered trom  the fact that the "same company has  several other similar ������������������coppernobs."  though of a more recent date, still  running upon its system.  Nuiv that it has been withdrawn  from active service, the locomotive is  to be placed in a well-merited place of  honor. The railroad company are  having a special glass-covered case  erected in a prominent position at  their Barrow terminus to accommodate  the relic, and it will constitue an interesting memento of the early days  of the railway era and also form a  striking contrast with the fieeter and  more powerful locomotives of to-day. ���������w+J.+.i-t+.fr.t*-*****'*********'**..  fr  ALL THE NEW  EDITIONS  AT..  fr  fr a-  % Canada Drug & Book Co |  % REVELSTOKE. *  % %  fr ************ **************  Notes of News.

The P.evelstoke Arch, the Purchase of the Water and Light  Plant and Street Improvements Taken Into Consideration.  Held a special meeting on Monday  evening.     Present  the   Mayor, Aid.  Bourne, Abrahamson, McLeo.d. '"  The objects of the meeting were  (1) To deal with the report of the  Mayor on his visit to Vancouver, (2) to  consider the purchase of the water and  light system, (3) to consider repairs  and construction necessary to be done  on streets and sidewalks throughout  the city, (*l) to pass accounts.  The mayor said that on arriving at  Vancouver it kept him busy to get a  man to put up the arch, lie let a contract for the erection of the arch for  S'200, H. Edward's fare and expenses  were S2j; express on minerals $10.10;  drayageS3; U days hotel bill, .$12;  meals on train $3: total $253.10  Tlie arch was put up in good shape  an^.je_^v_i_i'ie_.___>vhp_saw_.i t_a_d m i ttorl.  that it was the only one there representative of the industries of tlie  country. Being alone he did not have  time to get the press to give a full  description of the minerals and design  of tho arch. However the arch wus  greatly admired and Revelstoke had  no reason to be ashamed of it. Part  of the committee had given him every  assistance but lie never got even introduced to the mayor of Vancouver.  Neither the mayor of Now Wcsl-  iniiihler nor the American Consul had  tickets to the grand stand to bear the  undress made and some of the aldermen were vory indignant over the  treatment accorded to him and them.  Aid. McLeod thought that th!.*.  treatment was very unfair and the  only conclusion that could be arrived  at wus that the city of 'Vancouver  wanted our money.  Thc mayor said that the mayor's  conduct was as much blamed by the  citizens of Vancouver as possible. lie  did not eonsiclur the money ut all  thrown away. One old timer of  fbiti.'ih Columbia told hirn that it  demonstrated to hirn one thing of  wliich he previously had been unaware  wliich w;us thit Kevelstoke wa������ the  centre of the world. lie. disposed of  the mineral by leaving ifc in' charge of  Messrs. Realty Si JLembkc, mining  brokers, who have promised to display  ii, in two windows on the main street  of Vancouver,' wliere it will form a  good advertisement.  Lmder the second head the following  communication was read from tho  Secretary of the Revelstoke Water,  Light Si Power Oo.: "We nre led to  believe that the bylaw for the purchase of our plant has been set aside,  although we have not yet received any  official notice* to that eirect. Wo are  very anxious this fall to complete onr  plans and have everything in rendiness  for an   early   couuuencemont   in   the  spring of the construction of our  waterworks extension. This-'work  will involve a huge sum of money and.  owing to the tightness of the money  market, an agreement between your  council and ourselves fur a tviui of,  say, tenyoars, would greatly' assist us  in disposing of our stuck. We t-hould  be pleased at an an early date to meet  aconiniitteeofyourc.iuric.il and submit onr plans and monthly rates for  street lighting and hydrant rental for  the term mentioned."  Aid. Bourne thought that the proper  thing for the council was to put another bylaw for the purchase of the'  plant before the people and let thetn  vote on it.  Thc mayor thought* tbe councif  should take immediate action along  these lines. It would take a month or  more to put tbe bylaw through.- Tn  the meantime the company ' should be  approached to find out whether they  are willing to abide I13- the old price.  It was resolved to hold a joint'meeting nf the company and a committee  of the whole council on Thursday  afternoon in No2 lire hall lo decide on  sonic action with reference to the  water and light system.
