DAILY  EDITION:  FIRST YEAE-NO. 29.  TELEGRAPHIC flEWS BY WIRE  Firs at Rossland,  Rossland,  Feb. 0���3:15 p. iu.��� There hus  beeu a saying at Rossland for years, "If  the'International takes fire, the town will  burn    down."      When   at   noon   today  the International was found to be on fire,  there was a scramble and rush for the  scene.     Prom every window in the building smoke was issuing but no flames. The  fire brigade were on hand promptly, but  - it took about 15 minutes to locate the fire.  The International is a music hall, and the  lire was located under one of the dressing-rooms. t   Spokane   street   was   soon  strewn with goods from stores, but the  firemen got the fire under control, and it  was confined to the ramshackle  building  in which it started.   Across the alleyway  ;fi'<ii_ the International is the temporary  office of the Bank  of Montreal,  and had  the    fire    got    under    headway     that  building would   have gone.   Before  the  fire was out and while the smoke was issuing from the windows, chief Squires received a check from J. S. C. Fraser, manager of the Bank of Montreal, for $50, with  a letter commending   the   boys   for   the  work they had done in saving the town.  The total damage will not amount*to over  $8000, and a performance will be given at  the International tonight as usual.  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1899.

Tuesday was a ^calamitous day at  Rogers Pass, and recorded the most tragic  events that have happened in the history  of railroading in that section of the  Rocky Mountains within the Dominion of  Canada. In the morning snow-shed No.  .19 was swept by a snow-slide into the  canyon of the Illecillewaet, the track torn  up for some distance, and the man in  charge killed and his body carried goodness knows Where. Tt is probable that  his remains will not be found till the  warmth   of spring  melts the   mountain  snows.  Later  tr'agedy  station.  !A  Will Oe pared For by Friends.  London, Feb. 0S���Sir Henry jfrving's  business affairs have been practically  taken into the hands of his friends, who  are organizing a stock company to manage the Lyceum, with an arrangement  with Irving to play not less than a hundred nights each season. Several prominent managers and other notables have  ��veen raising money to take a lease of the  Lyceum and possibly buy the property.  (Jomyns Carr, the manager and dramatist, will control the theatre when Irving  is absent. Lawrence Irvine: is adapting  into English Sardou's "Robespierre,"  whichtfSir Henry Irving and Ellen Terry  wjll reopen the Lyceum with in May. Mr.  Jacob Litt's London representative says  Mr. Litt is endeavoring to induce Ellen  Terry to star the American stage under  his management.  Mob Mormons in England.  London, Feb. (i.--Lively scenes have occurred at Bristol in connection with the  Mormon propaganda there. Elder Herbert L. James of Salt Lake City heads the  mission. An anti-Mormon league has  been formed and its members attack the  meetings of Mormons. The police consequently are obliged to guard the mission-  house. Violent anti-Mormon posters have  been displayed in the streets and a mob  smashed every window of the mission-  hou8& at the last meeting and hooted,  stoned and spat upon the elders when  they emerged into the streets. Two  women  missionaries  were compelled to  in the day, however, a terrible  was enacted at Rogers Pass  Few railroad men "have been  better known or more highly esteemed  by their fellows arid by'the publip than  "Billy" Cator, station agent and operator  at the Pass. Cator has been stationed  there for some years and was a married  man with two children, the favorites of  the workmen about the station. Mr. and  Mrs. Cator conducted a boarding house for  the convenience of the railroad employes.  Iu their employ were a Chinaman, and a  young woman named Annie Berger,  sister of Mrs. Fred Anderson. The  weather had been stormy and windy;  but in the worst of storms it was believed that the site of the station was  free from snow-slides, and no danger has  been known there in the history of the  railway, extending now over some 14  years. The mountain on the south side of  the track is steep and bare, while that to  the north lies at a low, gradual slope, and  is the last place from which a snowslide  might be expected. Yet at about half  past three in the afternoon a terrible.ava-  lanche, evidently starred far back on the  mountains as the result of;-'.the stormy  weather, swept noislessly down the slope  [opposite ^the /station, j "Mr^ Cator Was .in;  ��thTB:station"%gent'sx>ffi^  ;It"alian| who;was.-ohe: of ;th!bse:;:_liglitly*ih?>*  :_ured.^Tlje^J-taban'-^  :���teuntion,tp:the,5l���ide and^he^.rplhed-.out^tlD*,  "gefc;nhisOItwp^chiliij^  jfron^o"&(th4;sj;^^   ��� He ^'Si^ti-Qvpr��sien%  %gaih> Th^Vsirdercam  pfoun1irhb%se��cbntainihg;"aV*^  pideinolishe^iilhdV;t"h*entf^sti;nulek''itjh*ei"Silv  i way;s tatfoh, "shiashihg'i t- uprand -s weeping.  ;itIaloirg;iike;so/much>tinder.*';^f^  ^his%if e"^and;/t)ynO",child ren1"��:aiid/".t_ie*|Chis  ,ineseC8Sr^va"nt jwefei ."killedyVCorsahf".the;  ;"night;operator^^as afleepin^  ^buildingmt ;thejtjmne��and]fWso!al_63ki.fle(_i*',  fAnpther.man%aniedMRigi^  "cha��r��e"pf"4he'eoa^^^^  ���bi^th(Bjrsof;MrDs>'Sim*mohs,���wife"of^  .known* "engihei^drivef.."..^  ��.we^e." rs!obif>recqvei'ed" exce^tingrtjthbse*8 cff'  '���Mr,;-:;"and\Mrs; ^atp^^ffdl'ttielOEineSe'i&er^  sVfM1 V& t"��T,te"slia��se��1aId;. ��� Miss.

Besides the Italian, who was in  the statipn with Gator at "the time of the  fatality,, there were two Chinamen injured. Their escape is extraordinary.  They were in a boarding car between the  station and the slide* when the slide  picked up the car, bore it apross the track  and the station site*, and piled it up on  the face of the mountain, the Chinamen  being comparatively little hurt. The  track was thrown out of rjositiPn. The  bodies found were very little" injured,  death having resulted from shock aud  suffocation.  Messrs. Marppleand Duchesnay were at  Donald taking over the divisiPa, as that  was the da-y fixed for the change. They  at once hurried tP the scene of the disaster^ and did all that they could to relieve  the injured and recover the bodies of  killed.  Railway and telegraphic communication, were blocked as a result, the eastern  passengers only getting as far as Donald  up till Wednesday night. By Thursday  telegraphic communication was restored  and the through railway service resumed.  The body of Mrs. Cator was found on  Wednesday. The poor woman had  apparently been engaged in cooking or  some other work about the stove, for her  remains were found by the pieces of the  stove and the body and clothing were  badly burned. The bodies of Cator and  the Chinese servant have still to be recovered. The mother of Miss Berger arrived  at Golden yesterday from Illecillewaet.  The remains of Mrs. Cator and the two  children will be taken for interment to  Bowmauville, Ontario, where the parents  of the late Mrs. Cator reside.  Much sympathy is felt at Donald for  Mr. and Mrs. Corsan, whose son was the  telegraph operator at the Pass, and was  amongst the killed. The remains of Ridley will be sent to Kamloops for interment. Miss Berger's leg was broken in  three places but she is doing well.  On "Wednesday, as a rotary plough was  engaged in clearing a slide beyond Rogers  Pass, another slide came down, and. one  of. the men employed in working the  rotary was killed. We have not been  able to ascertain his name.  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft '  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft,  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft:  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  TljE AMERICANS ATTACKED AT MANILLA.

Beaton's party determined to go  back over the route lie and Carpenter had  taken in and on b, Chat iss by way of Kaslp  creek. The tenderfoot and Carpenter  selected the Slocan river route, taking  their Qut.ficup that river by boat, thence  on Slocan iake to the moutli of the creek  where _>Tew Denver now stands. The  -Seatpn crowd got In fir.st, and staked all  that they thought worth staking.  The tenderfoot and Carpenter returned  to Ainsworhh, and a few days afterwards  the former; along with another tenderfoot, started across the mPuiitkins for the  new eklorado. For a long time nothing  was heard', of them, but tliey finally  reached Slocan lake; coming out afj the  mouth of Ten-mile creek, the creek on  which the famous Enterprise mine is located. They remained in the country all  winter, staking wildcats and undergoing  considerable hardship.  Our tenderfoot remained iu tlie Slocan  until the the Boundary Creek country began to be talked of. Over there he went,  and the report now comes from Greenwood that E. A. Bielenberg, our original  tenderfoot, has bonded the Buckhorn and  an adjoining claim to a syndicate of capitalists, receiving $30,000 cash aud $200,000  iu stock in the company that has been  formed to develop the property.  There are ups and downs in the mining  business just as in other pursuits, and  luck nearly always strikes the man who  follows it persistently.  Government Loses Thousands.  New York, Feb. 6.���Lyman J. Gage,  secretary of the treasury, has notified  collector Bidwell by letter that on the  advice of attorney-general Griggs he has  decided not to apply to the United States  supreme court for a writ of certiorari in  the case of the government against Stod-  dart, Huserick & Co. of Boston aud  William Iselin & Co. and Hirscb & Co. of  this city. This means a victory for the  importers and a loss to the government of  more than $300,000 in duties that must  now be refunded. The question at issue  was whether the present Dingley tariff  went into effect at the precise moment  that president McKinley affixed his signature to the bill. ..  ��;peajh;bBenmo.ves--p'T^o.!^  MsK-Societ^^  *iu.^."����."-.��������� v��"-"/ 'p"*1*' *"i** ""s"61 ��� y-^ft   ��� *���'��� *"*"' ?"!��'���*'-��� ^"��� '-:M''  ysi_?he'^prihcel^^of��5y*ar_s��:.m"uVtSbe5;feeliiijg;  ��Dvery!old'these.:days.r. pHe,passed7h.issfitty.-rf  seventliiaibnthday-oni the,";ninth�� ofAlast  rfiupnthj ���anud "ja^enwojaay^;-agpi^gjeatlir.Dthj:us^^  B��i|"s>;'enillr-i|an|i-JiiitoStlre *e���xcllisiyp^*cfifc'fe,-.  ..known" asps$he-��'MarJporpug^  I ��k3d��iob,beHi:0_ii_ayd'f.'tiTC6 "of* hisihSst/cBeiy  ^|Ke|Sjrae!n^JI^|^i|^  "ISarp'tt^Ferclihad'a^fae fRothschild'.^Bbth"  ."nadf_igen^jihe'p|:in((eiS4not.imates."torlmua^ny-  ye"arsf."an3"wege-vJry' lieSr'/his."oWn"age,  Mr." Sykes-beihg only, foiiryears and baron  .._^erp!ilnand]!fcjtv;p\ny]ea^n.pjder^than*i6hej,ii|an  "Whb;was;��;t;o�����dhave" beens'thei^.a'sp\^freign.;  "sfl'e haSfputlived th'euir bpth,^ but/his "royal  \ /m'ojher. ^cplhtinues in*" tjfe^'bebt. of health  ���knd," hikPhance of; opcupyiug "the; thi'Pne  sepms to grOw]essr with the" dawning Of  "eac;h;new day/.

BollThatl made engagements for  many evenings of the week, and a chill  must have come over several dinuer-  parties at the thought that death had  gathered two who. were to have sat at  the festal board. Only a week ago Mon-  nay, baron Ferdinand gave a dinner to  the prince, and Mr. Sykes was to have  been one of the guests. He had beeil  seized with a'fit that morning, while in  his bath, and he never recovered from it.  JOv. Man'y Sims was summoned at once,  and remained with him to the end. Baron  Feudintfud wris in town On Wednesday,  but the next morning he, too, while in liis  bath, was taken With a fainting spell. He  had been suffering front a combination Of  gout and rheumatism for some time past,  and for two days had eaten nothing. A  call was sent fo,r Dr. Sims, but he could  not leave Mr. Syke's bedside, and the baron declined to have the medical man who  was called in see him again. On Saturday  he died.  Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild was the  second son of baron Anselm de Rothschild and grandson of the Nathan Meyer  Rothschild who founded the London  branch of the famous banking house, just  100 years ago. He was born in Paris and  educated in Vienna, but in JSliO he surrendered active participation in the firm's  affairs, and came to England to give himself up to his great taste for art. He married his cousin Evelina, sister of Lord de  Rothschild, in 18(55, but she died childless  within the year, ond he never married  again. In her memory he instituted the  Evelina hospital for sick children, and ho  has left an additional hundred thousand  pounds to it in his will. Baron Ferdinand  was in parliament several years, and  served as high sheriff of Bucks, but ho  cut no figure politically. Indeed, his life  was devoted to art and society. Ten  years ago he bought from the duke, of  Marlborough the estate in Buckinghamshire, where he created Waddesdon  Manor, a lordly pleasure ' palace in the  style of Chambord, and here he gathered  the art treasures he had collected. Here,  too, he gave his famous "Saturdays to  Mondays,"at which the lights of London  society gathered, his guests often including Royalty. He has also been the host  of the emperor Frederick and the shah of  Persia. Doubtless some of the late baron's  Gainsborouglis, Cuyps, Romneys, and  lleynoldses will go to the nation aud his  sister will get his town house, but his  principal heir is understood to be his  young nephew, whom he brought over  from Paris and has had educated at Cambridge.  Christopher Skyes was a  more curipus  name than  baron Ferdinand.   Tall  and  lank and with a somewhat solemn appearance, he seems to have set himself,  with  all the seriousness of his nature,  to make  things pleasant for the prince of Wales.  He occupied a seat in  parliament for .15  years,  but was never known to open his  mouth in the house, and his sole record as  a legislator is confined  to introducing a  bill to amend  the Fisheries Act of 1877  and supporting the Sea Birds Protection  Act.   A younger sou of the late sir Tatton  Skyes���the present baronet, who has left  England to escape the notoriety brought  on'him by the reckless extravagance of  his wife, is .his-elder, brother���he begun  life with an- income of ��10,000,  a  town-  house in May fair, and a'country place in  Brantiiighamthorpe. At his death he left  a balance of ��2000 at his  banker's,  and  this is,understood to be all that is left/of  his patrimony, the remainder of it having  gone to pay for the privilege of being an  intimate  of his  royal   highness, Albert  Edward.   He   was a tame cat at Marl-  boi'ough house and Sandringham,  being  as" great a favorite with the princess of  Wales as with her husband.     At first his  entertainments   were on a   most  lavish  scale, but of I ate. years; he has had to curtail his expenditure to a notable extent.'  Still,  his small dinner-parties  remained  among the smartest affairs of the season.  Such    famous   beauties    as Mrs. George  Keppel   and  lady  Naylor-Leyland  were  often his guests,   and   he. could' always  command the company of the cleverest  men in London���command, for;the reason  tliat the prince of Wales frequently signi-  fied his intention of dining with "Kit," as  his intimates called him, and  designated  the guests he chose to meet, which had on  them the binding effect of ;/a royal, command.       . ..-,..'���.',/of.'���-'- ���.;.':���'   ;-.,:.::;.. ^'.-:-:-.'-^  ; MriSykes was a Yorkshiremanj/hard-/  headed as the rest of them,  but. he set  himself seriously to a life of pleasure���not  for: himself   but  for/ his .royal, patron.  ; Th ough" ��/6cclisibLia;l 1 y*-*o ii tspp kJeh".":ii n'.uehis^  "crpi^iciSm;or"��ome/tpr.incely|pi;p]e(it;.\yhich^  ;diDe;s"delVed''ilfeadiyi^'d|;nh'eis  >stahd^ing"lirbtest4 agaiust i'theiv_pri'da��Jjp��^  "o'6i|fe^,^Ong'a.n0tdpic.''"e^cepfe  \could��:talk^charmingly,*^nd;.aprppos^of.s  0Dp?v  .p hr^'V.-'  ft*1...0 n.^.ffl^p^Q*:npp,D.

Now,  while protesting that this statement constituted a gross libel on my feminine compatriots, Says a .London writer, it is pretty  safe to assume that there may have been  some consternation in the company when  they found they were expected to eat a  lengthy   banquet,  beginning  soon after  jioon, with drawn blinds, and pink-shaded  candles,  but with  never  a man among  them.   For it is pretty certain  that  thik  quaint American custom has not yet obtained, in   London.     And,  in a city in  which idle young men are as plentiful as  pc?as in Jtine, why, indeed, should it? The  custom of 'women'- parlies originated, to  bo sure, iii a stern  democracy in  which  men went forth to labor at the dawn and  did   not  return   until   nightfall,   which  brought with it,  by  the  by,, .a  meal   of  dubious nature called "tea."   For dinner  in a,stern and primitive democracy is invariably in the  middle of the day,  and  hence the humble origin of the modern  lengthy and sumptuous ladies' lunch.  The habit of entertaining each Other or  being alone with persons of their own sex  is one of the most agreeable traits of  American women, It is not, for instance,  t�� lip supposed that these feminine parties ate dull or (hat the absence of  bended individuals has auy effect on the  wit and brilliance of the conversation.  Long ago that astute young person, the  American girl, made up her mind to  aii.use herself: without "other people's  brothers" if need be, and she does it���  and, one must own, with great spirit aud  success.  The wealthy American girl entertains  her young women friends with a sumptu-  ousness which is somewhat alarming to a  modest European. A party of slender  sylphs will sit down at 1 o'clock in the day  and consume a meal which would make a  mere man green with envy.

[British Columbia Roview, January 21st,]  The subject of our interview is the local  manager of the English mining company  which bears his name.  As it is recognized  that the investiug public are quietly, but  steadily, turning their attention  to the  great mineral camps of British Columbia  as offering an excellent opportunity for  the investment of capital,  we have with  some   difficulty   obtained  from   captain  Duncan a collection of miniug facts, being  his own personal experiences of practical  mining iu West Kootenay,  and  thus of  far   more   value   and   interest  than the  gossipy reports one frequently reads from  local journals and others whose evidence  is merely hearsay, and whose knowledge  of practical mining both meagre and inaccurate.    It is a very difficult matter  frequently to get the men who actually,  do the pioneer work  in  a new country,  cut the trails, build the bridges, find  the  ore veins, and expose the ledges,  to talk  about their  work; and captain Duncan  at first was  very indisposed to be communicative.   He is in London for the first  time since.18(19, and when our representative found himat the officesjof ithe-Duu-  'bau\d��iVfl|Ve;lj- ��ep ipyhpg "a."; .^'hort^rest-raf t'e'r:  ' "Some .years of" very �� -haijd  \Vdfk,  wjii'ijij-''  Jia^e^eetf.devbjed^  t:hei:in#eiiesj;^ was not  unhattfi^f.tna|.iien Jslib^ildi show Aid; desire'  ^jn fact, a certain dislit_--|o: publicity of  any sort.,   Weiareglad, however, fehafcvye-  are abletogiv.e our. readers an outline ofj  captain   Duncan's" mining, ^experiences,  ���which   are of   the  greater" interest "and  valife,  as hie  has   visited, many mining  eampSin diirerenf-parts of the world.

At that time there were two mining fields opening up-r-i.e':,* Kimberley and-  the north and south shores of Lake  Superior." I had been in Boston and-Str  John (New Brunsivick) in 1804, so, knowing the country and the ��� people, I -hose  fche{ latter,, and started for GpllingAvobd  (on Lake Huron), and from time to time  grub-staked prospectors or fitted out  little parties of my own and headed them  to prospect and explore the country lying  as far north as the Hudson's Bay and  west to the Pacific Cpasfc; I also travelled  over" the Northern United States from  ^Ochig^J;;oJKashington_and=aB=far-south-  as Nevada arid California in the mining  districts, and most of this travelling was  done on horseback or on foot or by waterways, and nearly always before the advent of the railway. I have thus gained  my experience by observation from  nature and by coming in personal contact  with engineers, miners, prospectors,- and  explorers, like myself. I have also closely  examined the working of mines underground ill different parts of the world.  ''I went into West Kootenay in the  early spring of 181)2. At that time very  little was known of the mineral wealth of  the country outside the Nelson district.  True, the Le Roi, War Eagle, Centre Star,  Idaho, Josie and a few others were located  on Red Mountain, at the head of Trail  creek; but very little work had been done  on them, and the towns of Rossland,  Trail, Kaslo, Sandon and all the rest except Nelson were riot even built or  thought of. At Nelson what was then  known as the Silver King (and is now the  Hall; Mines), the Dandy on Toad mountain, and the Poormau were about the  only things of importance that were being worked; the Silver King was shipping  ore i to the States, and they had a 10-  statup mill on the Poor-man, which has  been "running in a small way off and On  ever since, and to my. knowledge they  have taken over $120^000 worth of gold  off their plates. Galena (silver-lead ore)  had been discovered in the Slocan the  summer before, and the Noble Five, the  Mountain Chief, Slocan Star arid a number of other locations had been made,  many of them on suspicion (as we call it).  "I made a trip into the Slocan country  before the trails were finished, but although I was convinced of the richness  and value of the ore showing, the cost of  getting supplies in (from 7c. to 50c. per  lb.) at that time and the knowledge of  what it would cost to get the ore out (for  it could not be treated at the mine) made  me decide to look up a new part of that  country, and if possible find and locate  free gold, either as placer or quartz, that  could be more cheaply and easily handled;  so I went back to Nelson. Then we prospected the mountains of the Kootenay  river west of Nelson, and although we  made some discoveries of free-milling ore  we . considered it too'low grade at that  time to handle. We also discovered placer  gold in several of the creeks, but not in  what we considered paying quantities.  "We went down the Columbia prospecting the benches for placer gold and   the  mountains for quartz.   We camped near  Trail creek aud walked over the ground  wriere Rossland is today aud made several discoveries, but they were iron capped and the ore was refractory, so we did  not stake any claims.   After travelling  over a great deal of ground and returning  to Nelson,  we set out again over  Toad  mountain   and worked our way to   the  mouth of Hall creek, where I found  some  white, men washing for gold  in the creek  and making good money (one man alone,  to my knowledge has taken over $8000 in  nuggets and coarse gold out of that creek  and the following year my partner and I  took out 15 ounces in  two  week's  work);  this convinced us that there was free-milling, gold-bearing quartz ledges (or reefs)  in this range, so we started up the creek  prospecting  along    the    south   side.     I  think   it     was     on     the    third      day  when      we      were      crossing     a     dry  creek that came into the main creek from  the south, that we picked up a piece of  free-milling   gold   quartz  about  twenty  pounds in  weight; we broke it and could  see gold in it, so we followed it up, and as  we got higher we found more float quartz  until at a height of 3000 feet. I happened to  be   ahead  at  the time cutting   my way  through the underbush.   I came to where  the creek had cut the ledge.   It appeared  to be about 0 ft.  wide, aud was standing  up exposed on the west side of the creek,  aud after some work we mauaged to clear  away the bush and found that it was only  exposed for about 50 ft.   If it had not  been for nature uncovering it in this way  we never would have found it, and I know  that I, as well as thousands of prospectors, have walked over untold numbers of  ledges that are covered up in the same  way, aud will remain so until someone  either by hard work or accident uncovers  them.   Next day we staked that ground,  aud  because   there were so many ferns  grqwing-arjound on"thatisside;p�� the liibujrir  ^i'nJ.cair^dii(A%fe>'']Jer;tis!''"'��-     -    ."."..  ^Treciprqedthe claiih|arid hadtthe rock .  assayed;: ^ w.ent $)30 ii.i".fi^e "gold to the.  .ion..

The ground in this creek (like  many others) is what miners call 'spotted'  ^that is rich in places and poor in Others.  Ours w,as a fairly gQodi claim; there were  several' better arid a"great rnariy worse on  tlie creek.  "Now, I want to tell you something  - thatspmeone would consider giving away  a trick of the trade; but I do it because if  Task a man to go into a deal with riie, J  want him to-gO in with his eyes open, so  that if luck goes against us he cant say  thafcl only told liim part of the truth*  and if I had told him all of it he would  have stayed out. You often read or hear  of men in some out-of-the-way place like  the Klondike and other, new diggings  claiming that they have ground that they  -Wash-out-doriars-ancl=often=6urices=to"the"  pan of dirt. After removing the boulders  we shovel in the gravel into the sluice-  boxes. Most of it is carried off with the  water that is running through them, and  ���the gold and the fine gravel sticks in the  riffles in the bottom of the boxes; at  night we shut off the water and clean up,  as we call it; we raise the riffles and run  off the coarse gravel or work it down un-  "til we have only a few pans of fiue gravel  and black sand remaining. The gold is in  this, of course, and the whole is carefully swept into the pan and the sand is  washed oil and the gold saved���in other  words the whole day's work for two or  more men is red need down to one, two or  three pans of dirt out of which I have  often washed several ounces of gold."  "How did you get on with the Fern?"  "Well, it would take up too much time  to tell you all of the tips and downs of  that miue ; but while I am at it I may give  a few facts to let you see that gold in a  ledge as' well as in a placer is a good deal  like the Frenchman's ilea."  ���'What do you mean by that?"  "Oh, a French Cauadian prospector (and  many, of them are among the best) who  could not speak very good English, once  iasked me, 'What do you call that d������d  ting in the blanket, that when you put  your finger on him he is not there ?' The  paystreak often jumps, but if you have  luck, or in other words patience,, and are  sharp enough, you will find it again. The  main tunnel showed a good vein, which  assayed well. It was bonded to an American who, after doing some work, lost the  vein and threw up the bonds. One of my  partners lost faith in the property���some  so-called experts condemned it as being a  gash vein aud petered out���so the outlook  was discouraging. However, I persevered,  eventually found the ledge again and  sent a trial lot of five tons to the Poor-  man mill, which yielded $01.59 on the  plates, and we lost over $300 in concentrates.  "It was about this time that the idea  struck me to try and interest some of my  friends in the old country; so I wrote  to Mr. Drummond.

However, the mill test led  us to believe  that if we picked  the ore we could ship  enough to the smelter at Pilot Bay to get  sufficient money to put up a  mill.   They  were very anxious to get the ore to mix  with their own, but I had heard so  much  about that concern  that I did  not have  much faith in  it; therefore when I sent  them a few sacks for a sample I was very  careful in filling: them up to see that I did  not give them the very  best ore, because  I reasoned in this way���if that ore would  pay to ship I could give them ore that we  couid make money on.   Their assay was  over $100 per ton, and I then went to work  and picked and sacked up 30 tons of my  very best ore, far richer than what I had  sent them, or even what I had  taken to  the stamp mill, and shipped  them  a carload of 20 tons.  This they sampled to suit  themselves and offered us $25 per ton  for  it.   This  we refused, and  theu  they offered us $35 or take the ore away.   This  they knew we could not do, for we could  not sell it at that time anywhere else,  and it was just about enough  to pay the  freight   on    it,    so    we    took    it;   but  they   killed    the    goose    that   laid   the  golden    egg,     for      we      never      sent  them    any    more,    aud    many    other  mine-owners   told   me  that  they   were  served in the same  way,  and therefore  stopped sending.   The smelter shut down  shortly after that.  "Afters many ups and downs a company  was formed, about one-third of the stock  was sold, ancl the first month's run cleaued  up $30,000. This goes to show that it is  not all plain sailing in the mining business.  You will meet with difficulties, and it  does not follow that you should condemn  a prospect when you meet with, a -set  i"'ba^Mhei" Ymir;n W^ Eagle; SilYerl&n^,  Paynes'Snd huhjper Of the best of amines,  to my;personal knowledge, -hav^e all taet  \vith the same dr. even w'orse diffjcultieSj  and have ea;ch��� been condemned in their  turn by] several wiseacres:'; but look ,at  ^them today. Remember, I do not say  'that everything that has work done onit  Will prove to be a mine., Fnv from it.  There are tiiitubers being'worked in the  Kootenay, as well as all over t;he world,  that will never make a mine if you work  on them until Doomsday; but this I do  say, that in the Kootenay especially it has  been proved in the last few years that if  you have a reasonably good showing on  the top to begin with the chances are  greatly in yourfavor Of finding itgOod at  depth."       .  "Fou mentioned that yon missed Mr.  Drummotld. When did he become interested with you in the Kootenay mining  camps?"  "Iii 1896" Mr. C. S. DrummOnd and some  of his friends joined me, and we started a  little syndicate and bought some prospects, did some work on them, sold some  at a profit and worked on others���some  With good results, others poor; but you  can't expect to draw a prize every time,  and this syndicate has since grown, as  you know, into a large company called  the Duncan Mines, Limited.

Before I lefc the province I. shut  down most of the properties that 1 was  working on, and only kept on working  the Granite and Royal Canadian. These  are, as 1 suppose you know, two groups  near Nelson which we own and have been  steadily developing all last-summer. Of  course, We have met with faults, as one  .must expect; but on the whole they have  opened oiit well, and the value, by careful  sampling and assaying, has kept up even  better than we anticipated, and if all  goes well we will have a mill running on  it during the coming .summer."  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  v):^^^ d^jt _s i A AS4 4 j^^^ji^ 4i2^^__^_;___.^ _.^_ A_s^______. a _s_sa _��_i_s>s  Glassware...

As a precaution against any tire which  might break out during the present scarcity of water, mayor Neelands has purchased a dozen Babcock lire extinguishers  and the same are now ready for use in the  fire hall. For incipient fires these extinguishers are very effective.  The water famine which has existed  throughout the city for the past two days,  through the freezing of the waterworks  flume, will probably come to an end this  evening. A small stream of water is now  running through the flume and by tomorrow there will probably be sufficient to  resume the service throughout the city.  Frank Dana Moore, purser of the steamer Moyie, made a plucky rescue from  drowning on Saturday evening. While  the steamer Moyie and Kokanee were exchanging passengers near Pilot Buy, Ike  Lewis, a well-known wood dealer, fell into  the water and disappeared beneath the  ice. A rope was immediate! ythrown out,  and Moore "shinnied" down it and rescued  Lewis. Both men were done out when  they were hauled on board the steamer  again.  A game of lacrosse on skates will be  played at the Crystal rink this evening  between two local teams named the  Doukhobors and the Dervishes. The lacrosse match will be followed by a hockey  match between the fire brigade team and  a picked team from the Nelson Hockey  Club.  W.G.

IV|cNie|l Co., Lid., Canadian Anthracite Coal (Hard)  lieves that act investigation is what Gen.  Miles is seeking, and that either a court-  martial or court of inquiry would give  him an opportunity to substantiate all the  charges be has made through the newspapers. The story of the meeting between  Alger aud the president yesterday is  that Alger first demanded a court-martial  as the only thing that would bring Miles  to his senses, setting forth to the president that Miles was amenable on three  charges, the first two of which may be  described under the head of "talking too  much." The third charge the secretary  suggested was that the general neglected  his duty in failing to promptly report the  condition of the beef he has since proven  harmful to the soldiers. Finding that  the president did not look with favor on  the court-martial plan, it is said that the  spcretary asked for a court of inquiry.  But this also failed to meet the approval  of the executive, and the latter suggested  taking Miles off the high military prop he  has occupied for so long.    Alger refusse  to discuss the matter. President McKinley is not approachable on the subject,  and general Miles declines to speakunt.il  he knows officially what is going on. At  the same time his manner conveys the  idea that a court-martial would not be to  his dislike, and he intimates very broadly  that he has nothing to take back or any  statements to retract".  Charge of Bribery Made.  Boise, Idaho, Feb. 0.���The long fight in  the state senate over the bill to prohibit  gambling has been productive of a charge  of attempted bribery. The attempt at  corruption was made upon senator Michael Carey of Blaine county. The story is  confirmed by the senator himself. Here-  fused to say who it. was who approached  him or how much he was offered. The  amount is variously stated at from $100  to $2000.- The gambling element needed  just one vote to defeat the bill and the  light was very desperate.  After the Excitement...
