 i\\  *>r.  * '.���*��� Vq  t:  ^'  *���?',  Has  Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines,  SIXTH   FEAR.-NO, 3"S.  NELSON,  BRITtSH   COLUMBIA, 'SATURDAY,1 JULY   30,1898.  Has   a   Mineral   Output    of   Upwards   01   C r r-  Million    Dollars    Every    Month    '  !r.   The   Year  TWO   DOLLARS  A YEAR.  CROW'S   NEST   RAILWAY.  The Road to be Through to Koctenay Lake  by the Middle, of October.  Contractor Haney is pushing work on  the Crow's Nest road. On Saturday last  the track was laid within sixteen miles of  Wardner. .From MacLeod to Bull Head a  regular train is run three times a week,  and passengers can travel in comparative  comfort that far. To Bull Head the track  is in good shape, and the trains invariably make their time.  From Bull Head lo Coal Creek, now  called Fernie, where the extensive coal  mines are located, is probably the most  interesting part of the trip. lb is between  these points that the celebrated loop is  located. This loop is a nice piece of engineering, the line dropping several hundred feet from the mountain side into the  valley inthe form of a letter S. The track  ' around the loop is not in extra good shape  yet, though large gangs of men arecou-  stantly employed lifting, surfacing, etc.,  and every day sees a marked improvement.  Coal Creek, about the brilliant future  of which so much is heard, is not a very  imposing looking city just now. It is as  yet only a collection of log shacks, principally hotels. The rails were due to reach  Wardner on Monday, and the contractors  expect to have the road completed to  lvootenay lake by the middle of October.  The contractors on the Moyie portion of  the road have practically finished their  work, and are turning off their men and  preparing to leave. J. llaskins left on  Monday for the lower end of the road to  finish his contract near there. McBeath  & Peters are practically through with  their work aud will soon be pulling out.  Cowau <t O'Neil, who had the tunnel contract, have moved their outfit and left for  this city.  R.. Balfour's bridge gang, with J. Me-  Davittin charge, has completed the bridge  crossing the Moyie river at the foot of the  lake and are now working oivtho bridge  at the head of the lake. YV. S. Cranston,  the engineer in charge of this division, is  measuring the work and giving the estimates.  Tiio Six-mile Wagon Road.  Work upon the Six-mile wagon road is  progressing slowly. Much slower, in fact,  than there is any reason for. The length  of the road is estimated at thirteen miles.  Work was commenced upon  the road  by  the government on .June 15th, and on Saturday last but .'3000 feet of the road had  been graded. At this rate oi progress it  will take something like two years and a  half to complete the work. As the construction of this road means a great deal  to the merchants of Nelson as well as to  the owners of mineral claims at the head  of Lemon creek, it would be good policy  for the government to push things a little  faster. Already one companj-���the Oro  Mining <t Milling Company���is waitingto  get machinery over the road, and has a  10-stamp mill on the beach at the Koote-  nay lake end, destined for the Golden  Wedge group, aud there are other companies in much the same predicament.  The advantage of the Six-mile route lies  in the fact that as it affords an easy grade,  freighting charges over it will be comparative light, while from the lvootenay  lake terminus claim owners have the advantage of railway and steamboat competition. The government can, in part,  make good its boast of being largely responsible for the mineral development of  Kootenay by rushing this road through.  The Road to Boundary Creek.  The Canadian Pacific Railway officials  report a scarcity of men on the work of  construction ��� between Arrow lake and  Boundary. J. E. Stevens, chief engineer  for the contractors, has stated that until  the contractors could have some assurance that the supply of men could be increased no effort would be made to scatter the work, but that it would be concentrated on the worst portions of the  road during the good weather. He expected to have about 2,000 men at work at  the summit near the North Fork early in  August and possibly at other points on  the Boundary side of the divide. Mr.  Stevens was one of the chief engineers for  the Great Northern railway, but resigned  his position to accept that of chief engineer for the contractors.  when the Moorhead ditch will be completed and the immense' reservoirs'filled  at Moorhead lake with two sets of giants  working a mile apart on different parts of  the great mine. Of the balance of the  gold brought down one lot was .$.'#00, one  $1000, and one .$1000. These lots were  from Horsefly and Barkerville, the results  of the mill run on cement. At the Horsefly all is said to be very satisfactory aud  that the cemented gravel has yielded on  an average more than twice as high as  last year. This is only rumor, but it is  now believed that the properly-is on a  paying basis, and that work will be continued from now on. Mr. Ward brought  down also $."5000 in dust, the result* of  three days' run in one part of the mine  where they had to wash up on account ol'  moving boxes.  The McLeans Get, tho Long Tumid.  The outfit belonging to J. G. and \V. O.  McLean reached Brooklyn Wednesday.  The McLeans have secured the contract  to bore the tunnel, 3,100 feet, and several  miles of grading near the tunnel site.  The approaches to the cut will be open  rock work several hundred feet in length.  The tunnel proper is b\100 feet long, and  will be worked with air drills at the  Brooklyn end of the work It is expected  130 men will be employed for a year in  the construction of this work. McLean  Bros, have the contract also for building  the several miles of switchback across the  summit.        __ <  Two Oppositionists to Flop.  "We have reliable information to the  effect that at least two of the late elected  opposition members will stand by Mi'.  Turner when the house convenes in February." Theabove is from the Turner government's organ in Xe\v West in ins lor. ft  may be a campaign lie somewhat overdue  or it may be a statement of fact. As  premier Turner has stated that he has no  intention of resigning, but will meet the  legislature possibly in February it will  probably bo some months before the  people will have a chance to determine  whether it is false or true.  and Spain."' [lis descendants have in  more than one instance, given able and  capable men to the service of their country. .Recently a younger brother of lord  Minto, the Hon." A. R. I). Eliott. was  elected as member for Durham in the imperial parliament after a hard, contest.  Lord Minto i�� not a stranger to Canada,  having from 1883 to 1885 been military  secretary to the marquis of Lansdowne,  while the latter was governor-general of  Canada. Jii politics lord Minto is a liberal-  unionist.  MUNICIPAL   MATTERS.  RICH   LITTLE   PORTO   RICO.  The Quesn Bess Wagon Road.  John Hirsch, of this city, lias completed  a preliminary survey for the Queen Bess  wagon road. The route will be from a  point close to Lovett's mill at Sandon  over the Wonderful trail, and on around  the hill to a junction with the Idaho road,  a distance of five miles. Jt will be approximately a five percent, grade. The  road will cost $8,000. The provincial government wiii put up $-1,000, the Queen  Bess $1,000 and the K. it S. will also make  a substantial subscription. The mine  owners of the Idaho basin  and  the citi  zens of Sandon will  be asked to  the balance.  iroduce  Large Force at the Athabasca.  Work upon the construction of the mill  for the Athabasca Gold Mine, Limited, is  going ahead nicely, and the company expects to drop the first stamps about September 1st. The mill is a 10-stamp affair,  and is being constructed by Frank Beard.  The mill will be completed much sooner  than September, but it is expected that  the construction of the tramway and  work in the matter of bringing down the  water power will take some time. The  tramway is a gravity surface tramway  2200 feet in length. The company expects  to secure a water power of between 00 and  70 horse power during the lowest season.  There are between 75 and SO men working  ing the company's mine aud on the improvements.  , ���   Returns of;i Cariboo Wash-ups,  Last week the Ashcroft stage brought  $73,700 worth of gold from the Cariboo  hydraulic claims, of which $."53,300 was  from the Cariboo Hydraulic mine, the result of the first run this reason at that  mine. The result was better by some  thousands than was expected. The  next wash-up, if the water holds out, will  be very large. But for the great results  the owners  must  wait until  next  year,  Strike Made in the Eli.se.  The Lerwick Mining Company is meeting with every encouragement in the development of the Elise mine in the Vmir  district. Some good ore has been taken  from a three-foot seam in the tunnel  which assayed $32.-10 in gold and $22.10 in  silver. The tunnel on the Elise is now in  a distance of about 307 feet, and it is  thought that in 13 feet more the ledge  will be encountered. The vein is six feet  wide aud the tunnel will tap it at a cleptli,  of 125 feet.   MacPherson's Opinion of Cassiar.  Robert Macpherson, of Vancouver, returned Friday morning from Cassiar,  where he has been doing active missionary  work in the cause of good government.  Mr. Macpherson says that Cassiar is practical l5r a unit against Turnerism, and will  only elect men who will promise to oppose  Turner. The three candidates running  there arc not government candidates. Mr.  McTavish is an oppositionist and Mr. Clifford classes himself as an independent.  Good Strike on Virginia.  Among the most important strikes in  Rossland is the one that has just been  made on the Virginia. In that property,  in the 300-foot level in the drift, at a point  about 110 feet from, the shaft, there has  been encountered an ore chute that is  now known to be 28 feet wide, and the  foot wall has not yet been reached. In  this ore chute there is a paystreak nine  feet wide which will average" over $.10 to  the ton. '  Trout Lake Steamor Running.  The steamer Victoria, built this spring  at Trout Lake City, has made several  satisfactory trips to the foot of the lake.  She.is a square-bowed scow about 70 feet  long, with engines and a stern wheel, and  much resembles the lllecillewaet on the  Arrow lakes. She was built by Captain  N. P. Roman for himself, .1. A. Ma gee, of  Comaplix, and others.  Miner Injured at Whitewater.  Phillip Christenson, a miner employed  on the Whitewater Beep property, was  injured Saturday. With other workmen  he had put hi two blasts, only one of  which exploded. He carelessly went into  the drift, and before he could get away  the other charge went off. Tie was struck  in the head by a flying rock and was  severely injured.  Who the New Man Is.  The earl of Minto has been appointed  to succeed his excellency, theearl of Aberdeen, as governor-general oi'Ca.nm'la. This  peerage was originally conferred on admiral Eliott for���to use Macaulny's words  ���"his memorable defense of Gibraltar  against the  fleets and armies  of'France  At,'Monday afternoon's session of the  city council the report of the public  works committee was received and  adopted.' The committee recommended  the construction of 8-inch sewers on <he  following streets: on Cedar street from  Baker to Water street; Vernon street,  from1 Cedar to Park street; on the alley  in block 70, from Cedar to Park street;,  and on the alley in block 58, from Cedar  street to the general hospital. The committee also recommended the performance of the work set out in the city engineer's report.  Mayor Houston reported that he had  received the following tenders for city  debentures: Bank of British Columbia  for $5,000 worth at 99 cents; Merchants  Bank of Halifax for $20,000 worth at par:  and Bank of Montreal for the whole issue  of $05,000 at 08i cents.  Mayor Houston also reported that proceedings had been commenced by R. M.  Macdonald, on behalf of Dr. Arthur, to  quash by-law No. 3J.  At Wednesday afternoon's session tho  public: works committee reported upon  the tenders received for sewer supplies.  The committee recommended that the  tenders of 11. J. Evans & Co. for sewer  pipe and cement and the Balfour Brick  Co. for 35,000 bricks be accepted. The  committee also recommended tho purchase of Noll & Thompson's tools at  $171.30. The city engineer was instructed  to prepare plans and specifications for  sewerage extensions, and report at the  next meeting. He was also instructed to  require premises on streets on which  sewers have been constructed to connect  with the same.  Mayor Houston way authorized to purchase man-hole covers and other sewer  material and supplies, preference to be  given to local manufacturers.  Bright Outlook for Ymir.  Ymir ri.iuer : There arc a,\. piOsi-.nl ..:.4Ivor ten properties working in the A'icinity  of Vmir, and a good number of them will  put in machinery during the summer and  fall. There are at present two concentrators and three stamp mills under construction, all of which will be completed  within the next few months. From present indications the coming fall will see  Vmir a very lively camp. Although wc  have experienced some dull times during  the past few months, there is no reason  why we will not see good times in Ymir  yet. With several hundred men working,  lis there will be within the next sixty or  ninety days, Ymir will have a pay roll  second to no camp in British Columbia.  There are at present 200 men working on  the different properties around Vmir, and  placing the wages of these men at $3.50 a  day, the regular miners' wages, this  would at present give Vmir a pay-roll of  $21,000 per month.  What Hill May Make on the Deal.  With respect to the absorption of the  Corbin railway systems by the Great  Northern Railway Company, James J.  Hill may be credited with having made a  clever financial transaction. Men acquainted with stock dealings arc satisfied  that the Great Northern bought in its-  Spokane Falls it Northern stock for not  over !)0. This road is bonded for $2,8)2,-  000, and the amount of capital is the same.  The bonds draw 0 per cent interest and  are clue in 1939, or nearly forty years  hence. The Great Northern in control, it  becomes responsible for the payment of  the bonds and the money kings will not  be slow in bidding for such. desirable  securities. It will be an easy matter for  .Air. 1 till to run up the price to 120 when it  becomes known that the roach's in a position to pay dividends, and the-profit on  the stock will be considerable. The  same fchingiippli.es equally to the X. <t l<\  S. and R. M. systems.  Gold Strike Near Whitewater.  The Kootenaian reports a gold strike on  the ibex trail, two and a half miles from  the town of Whitewater. The lead is  about IS inches in width, and has been  opened by cuts in two places,'about 50  feet apart. Six sets of samples have been  taken. The first averaged $31. None of  the others have given averages less than  $50. The property was located several  years ago by Billy Moulsc. Archie-  Fletcher acquired a .half and T. J. Leu-  drum, of Ainsworth, took half. Hughy  Fletcher bought out Mr. Londrum, and  with the exception of a small interest  taken back by Motilse, the Fletchers now-  own the property, which consists of three  claims.'   Surveying for tho Lardeau Railway.  A. E. Doneet, of Montreal, left Revel-  stoke Tuesday morning for Arrowhead,  to commence a survey for a railroad from  that point through the Lardeau to Kootenay lake. It is believed that this line is  intended to become a portion of the  Crow's Nest railway system, and the connecting link bet ween it and the main line.  Wonderful Possibilities of the Island Which  the United States Want.  Tho little island of Porto Bico, lying  southeast of Cuba, with San Domingo  intervening, is only about one hundred  miles long (east and west), and forty  broad. But it is so packed full of riches  that a 'population of S00,000, generally  la/.y, illiterate and unskilled, are able to  pay $3,000,000 tribute to Spain each year,  support a Spanish army and a horde of  Spanish office holders, and live very comfortably themselves.  Porto Rico has had a stormy, history'  since Columbus discovered it in M93, or  more accurately, since Ponce de Leon  founded its present capital, San Juan, in  1510. lie began with a terrible slaughter  of natives, and Spain or her enemies have  kept war and oppression a chronic condition there ever since.  Its population, according to the census  of IS97, the latest, was 800,70S, of which  about 150.000 are white, 2-10.000 mulattoes,  and 75,000 negroes. Only one in eight are  classed as literate, but a majority of those  can only read, not having reached the ad-  , vanced stage of learning which affords  them the joy of writing.  Physically, the island presents a variety  of conditions which would not be looked  for on such a modest bit of territory by  one accustomed to the larger scale of topography prevailing in the Unites States. A  mountain range runs from coast to coast,  east and west, rising in the eastern district to a height of 3080 feet, and the deep  canyons, cutting down to the Carribeau  Sea on the south and the Atlantic on the  north, are sources of innumerable water  courses, no less than forty of them being  large enough for inland navigation by  trading craft.  The country on the northern slope of  the mountain range, is as rich agricultural land, it is said, as is found anywhere  in the world, raising the maximum of  crops with the minimum of cultivation,  while to the south of the mountains the  lands require artificial irrigation to produce good crops. This great difference in  so small an area is all the more remarkable as in the '; wet" portion of the island  the average annual rainfall is sixty-four  inches.  Spaniards have been cultivating the  land for four centuries, but they exterminated a people, who were wise in the  arts of agriculture, and today only a very  small proportion of the arable land has  ever been cultivated, chiefly, it seems, because there are no roads by which produce can, be carried to shipmu.;? points except, over the rich lowh-.nclsnear'the coast.  But even under a system calculated to  make a Vaukeo farmer groan for the  waste of possibilities, the Porto llicans  raise enormous and rich crops. Here is a  list of the principal crops: Sugar, molasses, tobacco, coffee, rice, cotton, maize,  plaintains, oranges, bananas, pineapples,  and a score of other fruits, honey and  cocoanuts. They mine and export salt,  as well as sugar, building stone and  marble, and it is known that the hiils contain gold, copper, tin, lead and iron,'but  the inhabitants lack the skill, enterprise  and capital to develop these mineral  riches.  Of the good things which Porto Rico  raises in excess of her own needs, and  which she exports, the United States take  more than any other country, even more  than Spain. The mother country takes  about one-sixth of the total, and ou the  balance a high export duty is charged to  help swell the enormous tribute exacted  by Spain.  Besides the salt ponds, which the government owns and works, the only resource besides agriculture which tho  natives depend upon is found in the very  rich forests, wherein are no less than 500  varieties of trees, many of them exceedingly valuable. All this industry is carried on practically without railroads, less  than 100 miles of poorly built aud  equipped tracks being in operation, and  the wagon roads dwindle into mule paths  a few miles back of the coast.  The climate of Porto Rico is much  superior to that of Cuba, seldom exceeding 97 degrees, aud sinking to 08 at night.  But even at the hottest it is not vexed  with much humidity,, the air being''kept  generally free of moisture by the prevailing northeast wind.  But Porto Ricaus act on the belief that  they will do.more work in the course of  the year if they cio none at all when the  sun is fiercest, so for three hours in the  middle of the day when the thermometer  is highest they cease all work. Fven at  other hours, those most favorable for  labor, they go about the struggle for life  ina. leisurely manner. As little energy  as the Cubans have, by our standards, the  Porto Ricaus have less.  This is shown in 'the lack of energy  they display in their periodic attempts to  free themselves from Spanish rule. They  have attempted this often, but always  have given up after a struggle which  would only have encouraged the Cubans.  Among the white natives there is. the  large number of 25,000 who are. not of  Spanish descent, and among.these it is interesting to note that the rebellious feeling against Spain' are aroused more by  social than political wrongs.  [jet it be understood that the Spanish  captain-genera! of course appointed  by  the crown -and his large stall' of military  and civil officers, all from Spain, form a  society into which even the wealthiest  and most accomplished native Porto  R.iean may never hope to enter, fie finds  himself looked down upon as a social inferior, not only by the officers, but by the  private Spanish soldier he helps to  maintain.  It is this class of Porto Ricaus, more  perhaps than the poorer class, as in Cuba,  who will   most  rejoice  in   the  liberation  from Spain which will be speedily effected for them by the expeditions now being fitted out to carry United States-  troops to the outposts of San Juan, the  capital, which has already been bombarded by Sampson, as it has been in the  past by Drake in 1595. by the' duke of  Cumberland in 1598, by Baldwin Heinrich  --who failed in his attempt and lost his  life-in 1015. by the English in 1078, and  by (lie English" again in the middle of the  last century, when George Washington  was so anxious to join the expedition..  THE   SILVER   MARKET.  THE   YMIR   MINE.  The views of those who look for a  steady advance in the price of silver are  not shared by the Engineering and Mining Journal, which predicts a drop to the  prices prevailing in the spring.  The present strength   of   the market,  according to  the Journal, is  based on a  demand which is essentially temporary in  its  nature.   There   is   no   extraordinary  demand from the east, and  no apparent  occasion for any.    Nor is there any where  in sight an unusual call for silver, except  that from Spain, and it is not possible that  it can last long, since the funds for extensive purchases are lacking.   It seems to be  rumor rather than  actual  buying which  has  caused  the late rise in   price.   The  sustaining factor in the market just now  is   the   Spanish   demand.   The  Bank   of  Spain has  been  buying  all  the silver it  could pay for in   London, with the intention of keeping up its stock.   It must be  understood  that silver  is now tho only  coin  current in  Spain,  so far as coin  is  current at all, and   when  the war broke  out there was a rush to obtain silver from  the  bank  in   exchange   for   bills,  which  soon  forced it to refuse payment otherwise than in paper.  The recent sharp rise in silver makes it  of interest at the present time to see  what the actual demand for the white  metal has been this year. All know that  there has been no considerable reduction  in supply thus far. American mines have,  with few exceptions, continued at work :  the Mexican mines have held on their  usual course, and there has been no large  decrease in the Broken Hill mines. There  has evidently been little change in production; certainly not enough to account  for an increase in price.  SLOGAN   MINING   NOTES.  company  develop-  since   its  with the  Engineer lliblet is making a preliminary survey of an aerial tramway from  the Last Chance to the K. it S. railway,  i'iie property is again "on the shipping  list. Twenty tons of ore was sent clown  last week.  The new management of the Wonderful, near Sandon, is going to start another shaft in search of tho long sought  for ledge, which ought to exist somewhere  on the property.  ��� The owners of the Ghapleau have a carload shipment at Slocau City, which is going to the Hall Mines smelter. The Ghapleau is developing well, the returns on ore  paying for the work done upon the  property.  A strike of rich ore was made last week  on  the Hoodo,   which is  located  in  the  vicinity of the Howard Fraction, the ore  running $10 in gold and 00 ounces silver.  The owners claim to have a 3-foot ledge  of this ore.  Several miles of the wagon road from  Cariboo City to the Silver Queen have  been completed. The government contributed $2,000.  The mining interests of I). A. Van  Doren, of New Denver, have been levied  upon by the sheriff, and enough will be  sold on August Gth to satisfy a judgment  in favor of Thos. Lloyd, of Vancouver,  for $188.10.  The recent strike on the Last Chance  should make that property a million dollar mine. The strike shows two feet of  solid ore in No. -I tunnel, at a depth of 500  feet.    A tram is to be put in at this nunc.  EAST   KOOTENAY   NOTES.  The North Star mine in East lvootenay  has declared an interim dividend often  pel- cent. It is currently reported that  the mine will shortly be worked "under a  new management, that, additional machinery will bo installed and the force increased.  There is a large amount of development  going ou all over the district. Over l<>()  claims are being worked. Every prospector, and miner is sure that he has a bonanza, and is vavy enthusiastic over the  fact that he will be aide to get out and  ship ore this fall.  May Wipe Out Esquimau.  Esquimau'village is ���stirred by a rumor  that the whole site is about to be acquired  by the Imperial government for the purposes of the fortification works and'dockyard extension. Several properties have  recently been purchased and it is said  that the whole village site will shortly be  taken possession, of, and the buildings removed.  The American Loss at Santiago.  General Shaffer's detailed report of the  American casualities at the battle of  Santiago has been received. The total  number of casualities is 1595. Recapitulated, the American losses were: Killed,  23 officers, 208 enlisted men: wounded. 80  officers, 1203 enlisted men: missing, 81  men. The missing are supposed to In; dead.  Cheerful'Report Made to the Shareholders of  the L. & B. O. G. Company.  "That  the   London  & British Columbia  Goldfields Company is making a mine out  of the Vmir property is shown by ihe circular which t hat company has cmii-hI   in  be   circulated   to   its  shareholders.    Ecu-  close upon  two yairx this company  has  been systematically developing ,ilie Vmir  property with  ihe lesult   that  the  man-  agementeannowfairly lay claim to haying  mine.   The   company   has  now  in  sight  some 90,000 tons of ore.  which, after deducting all charges, will net $5.05 per ton.  The circular explains itself:  "The Vmir Gold Mine:--The  has  vigorously carried  on  the  merit of the   Vmir gold  mine  acquisition  in  November, 1S90,  result that a vevy large quantity of pav- ,  able gold-bearing ore is now blocked out.  With  the  object  of getting an independent report, Messrs. Bewicke, Moroing &  Company have been requested to examine  and report upon the same, and tin: following cablegram has been received from our  manager in British Columbia: 'July 0th.���- '  Only just received  from   Kendall   reporr.'  Amount of ore  in   sight  is stated   lo be  88,900 tons, and number of tons  of ore on  the dump, 1,700 tons; net yield   per  ton,  $8.05, after making deduction of all costs  inclusive of   London.

This  cablegram   is important,  inasmuch as  the  whole  of the property  referred to belongs to  this company, and  entirely  confirms   the   highly   favorable  reports made from   time  to  time  by the  company's own engineer, Mr. S. S. Fowler.  '  Although   the   present ore  reserves   are  large, representing as they do a net profit  of $528,100 (approximately ��109,000), they  are being increased by the driving of further  tunnels,  etc., now  proceeding.    Ar- '  rangements have already been  made for  the  provision  and  erection of the necessary machinery and equipment, including  a-10-stamp mill, which   is expected   to  be  in working order towards the end. of this  year.    That Ince Petition.  To Tin-: Editor of Tun Tuihuxk : Sir,���  Would yon kindly insert the following, as  1 would wish to place myself right before  my   friends, Capt.

That there was such a petition  is quite true, that it was gotten up to  protect myself is also true, but that, as  the Economist says, it was gotten up to  oust the present warden, I give a most  emphatic denial, for I have for Capt. Fitz-  stubbs the greatest respect, both as an'  officer and as my superior in the jail. 1  was given to understand by mutual  friends that there was a likelihood of the  captain retiring from active service, in  which event I felt aud do feel justified in  advancing a claim to what I have a right,  not, as the Economist says, because I  voted for Mr. Hume���that is a broad  assertion and the Economist cannot prove  any such thing-but because 1 have now  served nearly seventeen years in police  and jail service in the British dominions,  and am at the present time senior guard  in the Nelson jail.

In doing so he took samples every 30  feet in the tunnel aud had about 20assays  made, and these reached from $2.08 to  $38.57, or an average of $13.57 per ton.  The shaft is 200 feet deep and there are  some 285 feet of tunneling. A wire tramway 1800 feet in length has been completed. This runs from the mine to the.  site of the proposed concentrator. The  contract for the concentrator has been Jet  to the Alii< Machine Company, of Wisconsin.     Good Strike on the Waverley.  A big strike has been made in the 000-  foot tunnel at the Waverley mine. The  strike consists of seven feet of good ore.  This will be good news, not only to the  company itself, but to the camp generally, and will be the means of bringing  the North Fork into great prominence.  Tho Dagofi Go on Strike.  It is reported that there is a strike  amongst the Italians employed uii the  construction of I lie Crow's Nest road this  side of Macleod, the dispute being on the  subject of the quality of the board supplied to the men.

Too   much  importance cannot bea'.tachpfi to 1 be contemplated   visir   of   1 lie federal ministers,  since it is only bv personal visit" 1 bat the  iniiiister.s can arrive at tiny   proper estimate of the importance of  the mining industry of this district and the justness of  its claims for legislation more fa vorable to  its development.    The dale of the probable visit, has   nor, yet   been decided upon.  . the   ministers  having  been   requested  to  name a date convenient,  to   thetu.seiv.es.  As matters stand at present it is   next to  impossible   to  get  anything  done in the  federal hou��o in furtherance of the iuter-  '  ests of Kootenay.    In a house of'over 200  members the whole  province  ot   British  Columbia   has   but   six   representatives,  aud the rather important district of West  Ivooienay but an eighth of a member.    In  addition to t.his none of the  members of  the cabinet  have anything approaching  an intimate knowledge of the district, its  resources or its requirements, and in consequence   its-   lull   development   is   in   a  measure  retarded.    'When  the  ministers  visit   lvootenay   every  effort should   be  made  to acquaint  them   with   the great  possibilities  of   this   section  and   secure  their interest in  the  development  which  is in store for it.    If the  boards  ol   trade  in lvootenay can impress upon the minds  of  the  ministers a  proper conception of  cthe importance of the mining industry to  the province  and   to  the dominion they  will have accomplished something worthy  of their organization.  Mi.'NiciPAL  fire  insurance  is  again  receiving the attention of the press  in several of the  eastern cities,  as' well as the  newspapers on the coast.   The advocates  of municipal insurance  point to   the fact  less than HO per cent, of the lire insurance  companies* premiums are paid out in discharge   of   their   losses.   The  figures   as  given by the .suoerintendent of insurance  at Ottawa show that during the past year  thirty-three   companies   doing    business  received as premiums oT.OT.l.ttoO and paid  in losses but ���'$4,IS:j,r>()J.' There is "therefore  a margin of 10 per cent., which represents  management,   charges and   profits.    The  object   of   the   advocates   of   municipal  insurance  is  to save  to the   insured   as  much  of  this   margin as possible.    They  con I end that with a  consolidation of the  fire insurance business, such  as would be  .secured   by   the   introduci ion Of a system  of municipal  insurance.;! great economy  would   be  effected.    (Mven   the   financial  strength necessary, there appears nothing  to apprehend in the   matter of municipal  insurance.    The   advantages   of   -ucli    a  system would lie thaC'theie would  be no  leakages.     There    would   be   no   agents'  commission.     The   valuations   taken   by  the city assessors could be taken   in   issuing   insurance.    The   premiums 'could   be  paid in 1 he .-au.e.maimer as  other   taxes,  and   in   every    way   economy    could    be  studied, which is  not possible 'where the  business-is divided among thirty or forty  companies, who. when the business is t-ut  up as it is, have   to distribute   risks, reinsure aud in   other   ways   increa-e the expense aecouu;.  Now that work has fairly commenced I  upon the Canadian Pacific Hail way Company's line lo Botmdfiry Creek, the merchants of Victoria will have a chance to  reali/,:! the el'lee;. of their aciion in opposing the const rii'-t ion- of the the Kettle  iJiver rai.'e.'iv. Tin; Canadian Pacific  company's li.se   fnmi  lite  Columbia  river |  into Boundary Creek will be constructed  before work is even commenced in earnest  upon the road from Pentieton to Boundary Creek, and will be in operation for  many months before even the thought of  railway connection with the coa-t is  seriously entertained. The effect of this  will be that the. eastern Canadian merchants will .-ecure the trade of Boundary  Creek. They will have direct railway  conned ion with the' merchants in Eastern Canada, and their trade will naturally go 1 hut. way. There is something  like poetic justice in this-. The merchants  of Victo) in opposed ih" construction of  the Kettle River road into Boundary  because they thought that the road could  be built into Boundary Creek ovei* a  route which would place the people' ol"  that section ,at the mercy of tin; merchants of Ihe coast. The merchants of  Victoria tried lo hog all the trade of  Boundary Creek, but they overreached  theim-clves and will probably get none  of it.  Tiikpio is no end to the rumors regarding the construction of the line of railway  from Bonner's Ferry, Idaho, to the southern end of lvootenay lake. Two large  engineering parlies have been in the field  for weeks p.'i.st, going oyer portions of the  line which were located by N. i). AMller,  of the tirt'Ht Northern Railway's engineering staff, and there is some talk of the  immediate construction of the road. I'p  till the announcement that the Great  Northern Railway company had secured  the Corbin system it was freely stated  that this company was promoting the  scheme. As it is not likely that, having  secured one connection with this district  the Great Northern Railway company  would duplicate the same by constructing a line from Bonner's,Kerry, those who  insist that the line is to be built at once  have changed their story, and now say  that 'oilier capitalists are behind the  scheme. The only definite news is of a  negative clniracler. Actual construction  has not been commenced, and no one  appears to  niencentent  When 'i  BY   TOUCHING   A   BUTTON.  rf**^  know  at   present  if   a   corn-  is  to  be  made,  or if .made,  According to the latest reports with  regatd io 1 lie election-, protests have  been, or will be entered in North Yale by  lion. G. B. Mart in. in Wast Vale by Donald Graham, in Revelstoke by W. White,  and in Ncl.-,on by A. S. Far well. There is  also o.\wy reason to believe that at least  five protests will be liled against the return of as many government members  from Vancouver Island constituencies,  and on Ihe top ol' "this" there is also an  excellent chance of a general election inside of a year. The electors will have a  chance of becoming familiar with the new  ballot.  Lord iAJinto, who it is announced -will  succeed lord Aberdeen as governor-general  of .the dominion, is not very well known  in Nelson, but this is not regarded as an  unsurmountable difficulty in the way of  his appointment. The prospective governor-genera! appears to be commended  to the people of Canada, not so much on  account of what he has accomplished in  the way of making history, bill-rather because he has a long bank account. In  short, he wotdd be able to pay the piper  while in the country.  The Part Played by Electricity in Modern  Warfare-One Touch Does It All.  ,The commander of a modern fighting  ship nutmiges his floating fortress almost 1  wholly by electricity. Fn��conced within  the steel walls of the conning tower, any  admiral may direct the steering of his  vessel'by moving tin indicator on a dial.  The dial is electrically connected with  another dial close by the man at the helm,  who in this way receives his orders. Notification that his order has been obeyed  is instantly telegraphed back to ,the captain, who, meanwhile, has his eye upon  another dial that shows how the ship is  moving. On this dial is also an indicator  which he sots at ���'half-speed," "buck  her," "'go ahead" or "stop her." as he  wishes, thus transmitting his commands  to the engine room.  Never before in the history of warfare  has -o much dn\)nnded upon the brains of  the commander.' He is literally 1 lie soul  of his lighting machine- the only combatant on board who, litis any' freedom of  action. His officers and men are merely  parts of the mechanism which he directs.  He may be said, indeed, to point and  shoot every gun. The electric range-  find ur records in the conning tower the  exact distance of the enemy in yards, -o  that he knows when the great cannon can  be most effectively discharged, and how  soon the rapid fire gnus of the secondary  battery can advantageously deliver their  showers of bursting shells.  The whole ship may be said to be operated and controlled by the touch of an  electric button. ^ She is illuminated  throughout, by electricity: electric fans  force fresh air into her interior: her  searchlights' are electric ; her turrets are  turned and her guns fired by electricity;  if there is a fire or a leak anywhere notification of the fact is given by an electric  alarm. She has twenty or more telephones, connecting all parts ot the vessel,  with a. fully equipped central station.  Kverything on board is done by electricity, except the cooking, and an effort  is now being made to introduce electric  galleys.  The. electric spai k, in fact, will play a  most important part in war. As tin agent  of destruction, direct and indirect, it will  be conspicuous Ironi the beginning to the  end of the conflict.  ompany, Ltd.  Capital $1,500,000.    Head  Offices Toronto, Ontario.

The Troubles of Bowser.  The best joke that came out of the  recent election in Vancouver is one to the  effect that a west;'end grocer..who voted  for a certain ��� barrister . on ��� the Citi/.ens'  Ticket, on the following day after the  candidate's defeat picked up an opposition paper with an account of the domestic troubles of Mr. aud Mrs. Bowser  I herein depicted by (he facile pen of M.  (.iiad or his successor. Whereupon the  grocer wrote to the said paper and in in-  digna nt terms told t hem t hat I hey should  have enough decency to leave Mr. Bowser's private alfnirs out of their column--.  The yarn is founded on actual fact.  There   are   Three,  Thousand '..Stranded    Gold  Seekers there Already.  The Glenora News of July   1st reached  Nelson this week, aud from its statement  of affairs, at Cdenorn. it   would be well for  till contemplating   making a  trip   to   the  rviondyke.   to give   the  Glenora   roule  a  wide berth.    The News  says: "The 2000  ivlondykers between Glenora  and  Teslin  Lake who are waiting for a  wagon   road  to   be  built,   had   best order  in 'another  year's supplies to sustain them   until   the  road has befen built, for in spite ot all talk  to   the contrary,  there  is   no  hope  of a  wagon road this year.   Those who cannot  wait another year for the road had  best  sell or give away their supplies and start  on afoot (if they can't buy pack horses or  pay ���")���'> cents a pound for packing) or else  go back  home  for the  winter.    Much to  our sorrow, the News is  no  longer justified   in  leading  Klondikers  to  hope   for  cheat) or easy access .to Teslin over the  all-Canadian  route.    Some day, when all  other routes  are-opened   by Americans,  the Canadian route  will be  made easy--  but   not. this   year.    Without a   wagon  road to Teslin lake, the route is  a   failure  as  a.  cheap  route.    If you cannot bring  the  necessary  horses  to  pack your supplies for you, or cannot pay at "least $7o()  per ton freight to Teslin, you are cra/.y as  a   loon   to   try   to   make   the.   trip   via  Glenora."'  The present condition of affairs may  account for the statement that none  of the candidates for election in Cassiar have come out as straight government supporters. That there is a strong  feeling in Cassiar against the government  is evidenced, by the following clipping  from the News: "'���What are those men  there for?' asked Premier Turner ol Captain York, when told that .'),000 prospectors were at Glenora and at; points along  the trail waiting for a wagon road. It's  enough to make an anarchist of every  man in town. Premier Turner is personally responsible for the presence of many  men at Glenora. He has for weeks past  'proclaimed from platform and through  press that a wagon road was in course of  construction 'between'Glenora and Teslin.  when such is Hot the case, lie Ims told  this story to boards of ! rade and to every  individual who asked hint for. information, and many ha ve come here as a result  of his' talk.

He was employed on  some rock work and had assisted in loading a hole with two kegs of powder. For  .some reason the fuse burned very slowly,  and thinking that the shoe had missed  fire, the Swede and another ' workman  went to inspect it. While the Swede was  standing immediately over the hole the  blast exploded and the Swede was thrown  several feet down a ravine. The extent  of his injuries are unknown, but they are  not considered lata).  Dr. W. A. Jlendryx made a trip to the  Last Chance mine last week. Ilendryx is  interested in the property and arrived  there shortly after two feet of dean  galena had been struck in the No. -1 t.uti-  nel, which added I LO feet to the depth of  the property. The strike was made .110  feet; below the workings in No. 3. and 2i>0  feet, in from the portal. It consisLs of 2-1  inches of the same ore which, taken from  the works above, have marie the mine  famous among Slocan mines, and not a  few men rich.  Leonard Craig, who for several months  past lias been employed in the provincial  government of/ices in this city, will seek  more congenial employment next week as  teller in the local branch of the Merchants  Bank of Halifax. .Mr. Craig was for several years connected with the Nelson  branch of the Bank of Montreal, and Nelson'-,- youngest bank is fortunate in securing a teller so well posted upon Kootenay  business as he is.  The Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company announces a material cut in the  rates on .Pacific coast business. On and  after Monday next Pacific coast messages,  which at pre-ent cost 00 cents for transmission, will be sent for 00 cent*. The  rate for night messages is also reduced  from 00 cents to 10 cents. To the people  who have to (jay the telegraph tolls it  does not matter whether this reduction is  due to increased business or to the lively  competition of an American company.  To the wile of \). O. Lewis, of this city,  there was born a daughter on Sunday.  The bond on the Chieftain, the banner!  property of Cariboo creek, has been ex- j  tended until William Mackenzie arrives .|  from the old country. The bond is to Pat !

By this shot be- i  tween 1200 and 1500 yards of rock were;  blown off a sharp precipice on the right- I  of-way. One hundred kegs of powder j  and \~i feet'of fuse were used. l   i  Hector Sproat has arrived in Nelson for  the purpose of placing the engines in the  new stoi-l boat which the.

Perdue was under the  impression that so long as he had $20 in  his pocket; he could carry a revolver. This  rule does not apply in Nelson.. The  amount of money the offender has in his  in his pocket may affect, the amount of  the penalty imposed, but docs not; wipe  out the offence.  The picnic at Loon lake. whicJi D. C.  Corbin last week tendered to the employes of his railway systems, was probably the most enjoyable affair of the kind  in the history of American railroading.  .Fully 800 accepted the invitation of Mr.  Corbin. They came empty-handed from  every point reached by his several systems, and Corbin stood all expenses from  the-time they reached his road until they  were returned home. The picnic cost  Corbin all of $10,000. During the day his  employes presented him with a gold  watch, which the recipient said he valued  more than anyone's check for $10,000. and  he meant it.  William Barbour returned to town this  week after doing the assessment work  upon the Douglas B. claim. This property is situated about eight miles above  Robson. and within two miles of the new  railway. Barbour reports having struck  four feet of solid ore.
