Andrew F. Rosenberger, secretary  and manager of the North western  Development Syndicate, Ltd., nt  Nelson, was in town Thursday, nc-  companied by J. A. Magee, ot Comaplix. ThejNorthwestern Development  Syndicate are the owners of the  famous Camborne and Oyster groups  of free milling gold ore claims in Fish  River district, aliout -10 miles to the  south of Revelstoke. During his visit  Mr. Rosenberger appointed J. D.  Sibbald, the oliicial broker of the  company. The company are placing  on the market 2,000,000;shares at 50c.  per share, (par value SI) which should  meet wilh a ready sale. A representative of the Herald has visited these  properties and was surprised at the  immense bodies of rich free milling  gold ore in sight, veritable mountains  of free gold quarts..  On the Camborne group, coir-  prising nine claims, there are eight  distinct ledges of free gold quart'/, ore,  the main ledge being fully 100 feet  wide, and the Herald man saw the  gold horned Trom samples taken at  random, from across the lodge* wilh  big results, and also knocked oif  specimens with a prospector's pick  from the ledge, that would assay-  away up in the thousands.  On the group thc new company are  about to place at work a large number  of men and contracts will be lot for  the sinking of two shafts and the  driving of two^tiuinels. The company  have on this'property a* splendid  supply of water from Menhenick  creek with which to work a stjinip_mill,  which it is their intention to erect as  soon as development has tun.de sufficient progress.  On the Ovster group, comprising  five claims,' there has been a large  amount of work done this summer,  which has shown up wonderfully rich  bodies of-frecJ,-'inilling"gold' pre. -This  group will also be worked this winter  wi.tliafull force*of men. There are  .two shafts now sunk to a depth of 30  feet on tbe properties - and they will  be'continued and tunnels will be run  in to tap the leads at a greater depth.  Mr Rosenberger intends also to put.  in diamond drills so that a thorough  prospect will be made all along the  lends. . .      --  One great advantage to the investing  public is the full protection extended  to shareholders in Lhis company in the  plan in which the stock is placed on  the market. There are no promoters  shares nor preferred stock.  The slock in the company comprises  'treasury" shares only and will be used  strictly for development work.and the  company emnloys no ornamental or'  high salaried officials. Every dollar  subscribed will go to open^ up the  company's properly. Mr. Rosenberger,  who is the pioneer investor in the  Fish River free milling gold camp, has  every confidence in these properties  -and-he-considers-tlie^Fish-River-_cainp.  the.biggest free milling gold ore camp  on the continent, a belief that the  Herald has advocated, from the  first.  Black Bass for Kootenay  Says the Toronto Globe of last Saturday :    On    Monday    next   .v   'car  specially lilted for   the   purpose , will  leave Ottawa by the Imperial Limited,  carrying  50  large   disks    containing  black bass, intended   for   planting  in  some half dozen lakes in thcTerrilories  and British Colunibin.   The Imss  will  be of three sizes, viz.,  full  grown   (Uh  fish a year old   and   small   fry   about  three months old.   The problem whit h  has perplexed the  authorities  in  the  shipping of fish such a   long distaii,-*;  is that or charging the water  with   -i  sufficient quantity of oxygen to  inir.i-  tain the life or the fish for  the  live <r  six days of   the  journey.       A   no*..*!  device   has   been   determined     upon,  which, it is   expected,   will   overcome  this difficulty.   This device is oper.iU-d  on the principle of a fanning mill, and  is   intended   to  charge  the   water in  which the tish swim with   the   necessary oxygen as af ten   as' is   required.  The car will be in charge of two expert  officers,   and   the   first   planting will  take place in Crane Lake, on the.western prairies.     At Calgary another lot  will be left to be deposited in the lakes  near Lacombe, in the district   of  Edmonton.       At   Bar.tf.   which   wiii be  reached on Thursday, a fine collection  will be unloaded and placed in   Devil's  Lake   and    other      fine    sheets   of  water    in     -the    National      Rncky  Mountain   Pailc.     Golden, B. C. will  get    a        consignment,      part        of  which will go to the northeast waters  of tho Kootenay and   part   to   Revel-  ���������toke.   A very important selection  of  bats will be shipped to  the  Boundary  district to be deposited by oRlcers  at  Cascade City, inChristina  and   other  lake*!. The fish then rciiaiiiiiig in the  car will In- Inken on Friday oT next  week to Vancouver Island and planted  in three or four lakes there. These  lakes art* admirably adapted for black  bass anil are frequently visited by mil-  ilui-v and naval ofllcers at Victoria and  Esquimau. Tlie Fisheries Depnrtnient  has been very sutieessful in securing  a good supply of lilnclc bass ou a some-  what. k*s< extensive scale for planting  iu Like .M'tss.nvippi and some other  lakes near Sherhrooku andTlii'fe Lukes  near Montreal./ This will bo the first  experiment in planting bass tried in  Quebec.  Personal    Paragraphs  Pertaining to Railway Men Picked up  By the Herald.  Brakeman Derr, of Calgary, had his  thumb and Lwo fingers crushed in \(he  C.P.R. roundhouse there on  Tuesday.  \V. Cross, assistant to the manager  at Winnigeg, has been appointed  superintendent of tests with head-  quat ters at Montreal.  Mr. B. \V. Greer, who for three  years has been local agent of the C. P.  R. at Victoria, is fo go to Vancouver,  having been promoted to the position  of assistant general freight agent with  headquarters at Vancouver. Mr.  Greer, who replaced Mr. G. L. Conri-  ncy, when that well known railroad  man went to take a position with the  E. & N. railway, has made many  friends in Victoria since he made his  home here. He came from Victoria to  Portland, where Tor six years.he was  agent of the C.I', railway. Air. H,  Abbott, who replaces Mr. Greer as  agent oi'the C. P. rail way at Victoria,  is well known lo Victorians, having  been in the local office with Mr. G. L.'  Courtney liefore going to Portland,  where he has been acting as agent for  the company. - Mr. Abbott will arrive  in a few days and will take over, the  agency when Mr. Greer .vacates the  local of'iicb on October 15th next.  Patsy Clark, of Spokane, Interesting Senator Clarke, ancl  Other Butte Capitalists in Fish  River  Camp.  There is a deal now pending on  property belonging lo Geo. fSuldsinit.li,  John Lcask, of Cran brook, and .1.  Boillt*, situated about u mile and a half  from Fish Creek, near the. mouth of  Boyd creek. The amount involved in  the transaction is $.'300,000, This  property was only located about two  months ago and has the phenomenal  showing of -10 feet of ore on the surface, which has been traced .for a  distance of over 1.000 feet across the  claims. Patsy Clarke, of .Spokane, iL  is said, is the man who is intci-rsiing  the big millionaire milling men of  Butte, Montana, in Ibis property.  Already the engineer is on the ground  and has reported favorably on the  property, remarking that it was unnecessary to measure tbe ore body'  I'or, as he said, a blind man could see  for himself. Palsy Clarke and tho  Butte men are just the kind thai the  tamp wants, men who have succeeded  iu other localities. To Revelstoke this  deal, if completed, will mean a whole  lot, and it behooves our business men  lo be on the lookout, for the business  of the camp as the territory rightly  belongs to this town as its supply  point.  siation.

Dr. .1. XV. MacAbee. of Calgary, who  has spent lhe last, couple of months in  the Fish River district, was in town  yesterday and brought news of a  big strike of gold ore made on Wednesday last on the Goldfinch, one of  the claims in tlie Camborne group.  This strike is the largest ever made on  any single property on the continent  loday. Tho gold in the quartz looks  as Mr. .MacAbee slates as if lhe quartz  had been plated hy the hand of man.

Thfi'o i.s Lo be   held   in   Now   Vnrk  during the first two weeks in   December   next  a   .Mining   Imposition on a  scale   hitherto    unatteinpted   on   the  continent,   lt will cover every mineral  product of mother  earth   and   every  kind   of  machinery  and    process   in  vogue for winning and preparing lliem  for human use.      One department will  comprise exhibits to bo made  by railroads, mining bureaus and commercial  associations of tho   products  of   their  various mining districts.        I fere  is a  brilliant opportunity   for Kootenay to  display her   magnificent   mineral   resources before the eves of thc world's  capitalists.     At   New   York on that  occasion wc may rest assured  will   be  gathered together moneyed  men and  mining men from every corner of tbe  continent.     Everybody professionally  or finlt'ajyifcUy interested in the mining  industry wilTbe there.    Such a chance  is not likely to occur again  for  years.  We must get there.     Every board of  trade in   Kootenay   should   take   the  matter   np   and   urge   upon   tbe provincial    government    tho     immense  importance of having   the most   complete and representative exhibit of our  mineral resources that can possibly be  obtained on view at   this   exposition.  There   is   no   time to be lost over thu  business and everybody should   wake  up and   get   to   work   right   away to  make  our  British Columbian exhibit,  open the eyes of the New   Yorkers   in  good shape.      It can easily be done, if  we onlv half try.  The Victoria reception was disturbed by a "Hag incident." The American  residents   complained    because   there  wen* no Stars and   Stripes   displayed  in the civic decorations and proceeded  to embellish their own  promises  with  their national   Hag,   which   some city  oliicial ordered to lu; removed.    Hence  the trouble.     11 seems to the HlJUAU)  that thi'tv is n very easy rule for   tho  solution uf this continually  renewing  unpleasantness.  ' which       Canadians  would do well to follow.      As   soon as  it   becomes   a rule  for tin.'*   American  people lo show   their   respect for tin*  Union Jack by voluntarily   displaying  it on occasions   of   public   celebration  then it will bo in order  I'or  Canadians  lo   follow   suit.       As   it   is now one  might reside for years   in   the   States  without siiciug a Union .lack displayed  at all.    It   bi'CiPincs   I'uradinns.   as   a  self respecting   prnpli'   lo   be   equally  chary w'th Llie use   of   llu*.   Stars and  Stripes, us lung a- thi* slate of a Hairs  continues.  lint, a self respi'cling people will  respect the feelings of foreign n-si-  denls in their midst nnd if they like'to  enter into our national, celebrations  by llu; display of their own country's  emblems, we ccrlninly should nut  imitate tin* example of ill breeding  and narrow iiiiiidedncss set us hy the  lowest clement of the populace in the  States, by refusing them permission to  do so. They arc allowed to dn su  without the least notice being taken  in England and Canadians should be  big enough to follow the praise worthy  toleration of tlio mother country in  this mailer.  a  I      SPACE RESERVED FOR  GROCERIES,  PROVISIONS, Etc.  mm^m^iW^tm  -������ES^g^^S^������g^SiSSS^������B^  BAKER, COXI'KCTION-l.K,  ami caterer Etc.  The Revelstoke Arch.  The Vancouver Province says :  Thc Kevelstoke arch at the corner of  Richards and Hastings street   bears a  striking ma]) showing tlio city as   tho  centre of a  splendid   mining   district.  Two splendid Union   .lacks   surmount  it and at the base arc   splendid   specimens   of   the   ores of   the Kevelstoke  district, while two   men   in   the   traditional   garb    of    prospectors    and  miners  stand   guard   on   cither side.  The   arch   was   put    up   under     the  personal   superintendence    of  Mayor  Brown of Kevelstoke and-is   in   every  way a   credit   to   the   city that it represents.  The A'ancotiver correspondent of  tbe Colonist says :  The arch erected by the citizens of  Revelstoke for flu*. Royal visit is of  simple design but most ell'eelivo in  illustrating thc mining particularly of  Revelsloke. It is a simple arch of  evergreen with slops on each side at  the base. On those steps aro arranged  Iho mineral exhibit of the district.

A  recent  Loudon   despatch  states  that King Edward and   Queen   Alexandra intend, as   soon   as   the   South  African trouble is settled,   to   make  a  tour through Iuciia and   the   colonies.  There can be   no  doubt   that  such   a  project would be ajvastly popular one.  It would emphasize   the   fact,   whicli  _______e^a_vei-age_o_lcl _co_untry_i n ti_llec_t_is_st ill-  only very gradually grasping, that the  old position of "dependencies   of  the  Empire" has at all events in   the  cast*  of the Dominion  of  Canada  and   the  Commonwealth    of    Australia   jbeen  abandoned for  a   much   higher   one.  Canada and Australia are   looked, at  ' from any point of   view,   of  as great  importance in the Empire as Scotland  or Ireland and are in many aspects of  vastly greater.

Mineral Claim, situate in the  lievelstoke Mining Division of West Kootenav  District:  Where located:���������In Ground Hog Basin, on  McCullougli Creek.  TAKE NOTICE that I, Charles F. Lindmark,  of Itcvelstokc, lrree Minor's Certlllcate No. U,  4781X1, intend, sixty davs from the date hereof,  to apply lo the Mining Recorder for a Certificate of Improvements, for the purposft.of  obtaining a Crown Grant of the above claim.  And further take notice that notion under  Section .17. must be commenced before the  issuance of such Certilicate of~Improvements7-  . Dated this 8th duy ol August, A.D., l'JOl.  Aug ITixxt CHAS. F. LINDMARK  Speaking of Llie load production of  the Client- d'Alene ciitnp the .Journal,  'Wallace, Idaho, says :  "While   influences   have    not,    lieen  quite as favorable as obtained throughout last year,   owing   to   Lhe peculiar  attitude and   mischit-vnus   operations  of   the   smelling     trust,   the     Coeur  d'Alene     llistrict    has.    nevertheless,  made a most satisfactory record so far  this year, in somo respects surpassing  the phei.oinenal achievements of 1900.  notably thc many now mines  opened.  13y reference to a front page article  it  will be learned that the output of  tlie  district for the first half of   this   year  was' greater   than   that,   fur  the corresponding six months of   1000.      But,  the program of  product   curtailment,  adopted at the request of tlie .smelting  .trust liy Coeur d'Alene miners, did not  lake elVect to any appreciable   extent  until I.he first of .lune.   furnishing   no  hindrance up to that time   lo   tho full  capacity powers nf the  mines.       The  curtailment agreement by which local  mines arc reducing lheir output, about"  23 [ter cent, it is understood,    will   remain iu force until  the   lirst   of   1002.  and will serve to hold down   the   lead  output   for   this   year   to   last year's  figures.  The policy of reduction, while being  condemned by many residents  of   lhe  district,   was   adopted   to   allow   the  American Smelting   &   Refining company lo dispose of its surplus stock   of  lead gradually, the smelting  company  contending that to crowd the  demand  market would result in a heavy decline  in price, probably 23 per cent���������from  fout* cents   a   pound   to   three   cents.  We all know  that  thc  smelting company, which controls all   the  smelting  plants in this country,  has succeeded  in maintaining the high price of lead,  but whether by reason  of   the   policy  of   reduction   or  by the force of-some  power not known to the general public  is a matter for individual  speculation,  which this paper generously   accords.  But the Journal sees   more   in the reduction   program   perhaps _   than    is  observed   by   many residents of Shoshone county.       liy   a,   fairly   logical  process of reasoning the conclusion   is  reached     that     the   smelting     trust  i.s not only desirous of keeping up   the  price of lead but particularly   anxious  to remain on good  terms with   Coeur  d'Alene mine owners, who, by furnishing nearly'50 per cent of the total lead  output of this country, possess a power  that the smelting trust dare  uot turn  into  antagonism.     'Lhe   trust   courts  the friendship of the  mine owners   of  this iiislrict, its evidenced   by   all   the  conferences held by  lead 'miners   and  duly authorized representatives of the  smelting combine.    It ia a fact known  to keen students of the lead  industry  -  that the trust is preparing to  suspend  mining in the lead-zinc districts it controls in Missouri aud to force  the   low  -  grade lead mines of Colorado and Utah  into a long, if not" perpetual   silence.  While this may be viewed as a  rather  brutal design, it is quite  certain   that  the plan will be executed  without  the  slightest, deviation.    The result will be  of incalculable   benefit   to   the   Coeur  d'Alenes. for it will not only crowd the  full capacity powers ofall the   piesent  producing mines but will make a ready  and steady demand for the   output   o*f  the score and more of new  mines just  entering the producing list'.    This is a-  formulated   triumph   for   the    Coeur  d'Alenes that will fully crysttilize next  year but which  in   reality   is   a   1901  victory for this dislricl.    It will  be   a  victory of savagery in the eyes of   the  vanquished lead,   miners  of   Missouri, -  Colorado and Utah, who will he made  to seek   cool   comfort   in   the   kingly  truism   that   "might   makes    right."  Nature gave the Coeur d'Alenes   trust  powcisand these supplemented by the  smelting combine's {forced   assistance  gives the district  practically  supreme  authority in the control u.nd regulation  of the lead mining and   lead   refining  industries.      A" mining  district   thus  favored in resources and power has  a  fuLuie���������nf���������industrial-^* progress���������and���������  material prosperity .that will challenge  the attention of the business world.

Pie was a reporter with the viceregal  paity   aud   naturally     knew   it    all.  ���������'What is the name   of   the   Anglican  clergyman?"   he  asked   of   the   cily  clerk "Rev. C. A. Procunier."  was the  answer."   "How do you spell it ?"     It '-  was spelt "P-r-ii-c-u-n-i-e-r."    "Oh but  you must-be   mistaken.       That   is   a  French   name,       lie   is   the   Roman  Catholic priest.        "No.   there   is   the  priest.      His name is  Father Thayer."  ���������'How do you spell it ? " "T-h-a-y-e-r 'i "  "No. that's an English  name.   * He   is  the Anglican clergyman."    "All right,  if ynu know all about it. what do  you  come iind ask me for? "     Put   the  re-  pnrter refused to be   convinced   lhat a  Iti'velMoke man could  even  know lhu  names nf the clergy nf his   own   town  and he had to ask two  or   three other  pi*onle before he was convinced. '   One  of lliem suggested that  Piocnnicr was*  a Huguenot   name,   which   seemed to  knock* liini   out  altogether.  "Then   he  tackled Mr. Procnniur-'liiuiself.    "How  much   did   the    Duke   give     lo     the  hospital?"    "I do not know."    "Well,  but did'nt you hear Lady Minto say lu*  hud   given    11    handsome    donation "  "Well, you heard that too.    Vouknow  as inu.;h about it as I do."     "How   do  you   people   expect   us  to write   this  thing up, if you won't give   us   any information "      "Well. I Atn very sorry,  but I cannot help you."     As a mailer,  of   fact,.though   a   number   of those  present ��������� misunderstood     her   words.  Lady ilinlf* did not say that the Duke  had given a handsome donation to the  Revelstoke   Queen   Victoria    Cottage  Hospital   but'tn   the  Queen Victoria  Cottage Hospital fund,  of   which   her  ladyship      is     the     originator     anil  patroness.        Rut   to   return   to   our  muttons.      A   good   deal of comment  was created by the  unniannerliness of  the eastern reporters on the  platform.

Amid a mild burst of applause  Edwin II. Lewis was acquitted last  night of the charge of stealing $0(i0  from the Trail posloiliec. The scene  in court when the magistrates gave  their decision almost approached the  dramatic. The three score spectators  were evidently in strong sympathy  with the accused, and gave vent to  thoir feelings by various expressions  of elation, while a number joined in a  half suppressed cheer. Mr. Lewis'  relatives were in court, and he was  promptly surrounded by a throng of  friends and relatives, who expressed  their sentiments in various ways  governed largely by the sex of the  party   extending felicitations.  Counsel for both interests addressed  the court. iir. Macdonald made a  strong appeal on behalf of his client.  He concluded that if the court could  not see its way to exonerating Mr.  Lewis after hearing all the . evidence,  it was the desire of the. defence, that  rather than take advantage nf section  001 tho court should scud   .Mr.   Lewis  up for trial in order that his character  might be thoroughly cleared before  the higher court.  After a few minutes' consultation  the magistrates gave lheir decision.  Judge Townsend acted as spokesman  and remarked that while tliey hail  felt inclined to leave the matter at  the close of the case for the prosecu  tion in such shape that the crown  could proceed further if desired, they  had concluded, after hearing the  straightforward evidence given by the  accused, to discharge him. The mild  demonstration then followed, being  finally suppressed by the magistrate.  Rossland .Miner.

The grain .tonnage of  Manitoba and the Morthwest was only  about one-third, that of 3899, and  according to authentic rjeports less  than one-fifth of the tonnage of the  crop just harvested. A fe w years ago  such serious injury to the crops would  _h_i___e__had___a disastrousJ_<_.fltectjOn_the_  company's revenue, tVierefore the  development of other traffic in sufficient volume to materiallj)- reduce the  comparative importnee of the grain  business as a factor in the., -gross earnings was most gratifying.

Xone of t'riese sales were in  large blocks.  The desirability of. making provision  for the pensioning of officers and employes who after long service bocyme  incapacitated by reason of advanced  age lias suggested the propriety of  atk ing-consent that $230,000 beset  aside as a nucleus of a pension fund as  soon as the dircctora succeed in formulating a feasible pluii of administration, ft was hojx.'d thi.s would be  aceompli-slied shor'dy. hut tiie large  number of employes and the varied  conditions of the service make  necessary that the details of . the  scheme should receive the gravest  consideration before being put in  operation.  The president expressed for the  directors their appreciation of the zeal  and fidelity of officers antl employes in  the performancoofthf.il-duties during,  in sonic respects, a. most trying year.  The leases of the.. Kootenay and Arrowhead railway, the Vancouver and  Lulu Islard railway mud the British  Columbia.

Thomas.ranies returned on Saturday  from an extended trip through the  Liii'deaii mining district, where he  went to examine and report upon some  mining properties tor a Minneapolis  company. By request of the Miner he  has the following to say of the district:  "Notwithstanding Ihe severeand unjust 'turn down' th** mineral veins in  the above locality have received at the  bindsofl.be provincial mineralogist,  thc quantity ot high grade ore that  will be chipped this winter from the  Nettie f>., Triune. Ajtx, Silver Cup  and others will testify to the worlb  aud extent of this young and promising mining field. Thut the Nettie l,���������  Triune and Ajax, .which properties  will be tbe main piodiic'-i'H this winter  are true fissure veins there is now no  question. The veins have been tapped  al. great depth, and pay nre found .in  good quantities, accompanied witli a  regular and continuous contact and  well dellned wnll.-i.  "This promising district lms been  handicapped hy many obstacles.  Coupled witli the mineralogist's adverse report is its isolated position  from transportation facilities. The  cost of delivering a ton of ore to the  smelters and Ihe cost of smeller  charges spoil a $50 bill. However, the  near future promises railroad facilities,  and the coming of spring will find  Ferguson and Trout Lake City lively  and thriving towns.  "The Minneapolis company which  I  represent are now taking -steps towards t be establishment of a smelter,  respecting which I am now contemplating a trip tt> San Francisco."���������  Ttosslaud Miner.
