Of the Edmonton Route.
Vancouver, Juno 28.—The steamer
Cottage City, which arrived from the
north on Tuesday, brought fresh tidings
of the terrors of the Edmonton route.
William Doolittle, Who made the trip
over the Edmonton route, reported the
finding of three more bodies. The unfortunates who were found dead in their
cabins at iAfoo.se lake, 120 miles in from
Telegraph creek, were Sam Carter of
New York and A. V. Allison and J. E.
Allison, two brothers, of Kent, England.
They Avoro on their way to Lake Teslin
from Telegraph when thoy wore stricken
down with .scurvy and perished miser-
.ably in tlieir cabins. Doolittle and some
comrades found tho unfortunates and
buried them by the trail side two weeks
Doolittle says the relief expedition
sent in by James Porter, the agent of the
Casca Trading Company, left Dease Lake
on May 12th. The members of the expedition hauled a scow over the ice to
the head of Dease. Aceoi ding to reports
which have since reached Telegraph they
relieved the suffering there and are
pressing on to Liard. Doolittle says the
full quota of victims of that route will
never be known. Dead bodies, now that
the snow has cleared aAvay, °are being
omul all along the trail.
The Velvet's Large Ore Body.
Rossland,   June   2S.—Superintendent
J. Morrish of° the Velvet  mine on Sophie
mountain, Avas iu the city yesterday and
he brought excellent news wjth him.   On
the 2G0-foot level the" large ore body that
was met on the  150-foot level  has been
tapped.*   This'proves the ore chute to be
about 300 feet in length, and 250 feet in
depth.   In some places it is (50 feet in
width.    The ore  body on  the  250-foot
level was found after a crosscut had been
run from the shaft  for a distance of "51
feet.    When superintendent Morrish last
saw it on Monday the ore body on  the
200-foot  level  was  about   four feet   in
width, aud  there  were no signs of the
other   wall.       The   presumption,   however,     is     that     the     ore     chute     is
as wide on the 260-foot level as it is on
the  150-foot level,  that is, from ten to
thirty feet.     This establishes beyond a
doubt that the Velvet is a great mine.
The ore is all of a shipping grade and
carries good values in gold and copper.
The Velvet is not only one of the great
mines of the camp but also of the Koote-
finished the whole distance in 7'.minutes
and 17 seconds
This morning Charley Goldman covered the last half of the course, wliich is
credited as the most difficult portion, in
•1 minutes and 14 seconds. This is considered by oarsmen here as good time.
Howell, the American, who is rowing
under the colors of the Thames Rowing
Club of London, -who i.s the favorite in
the diamond sculls, thinks well of Goldman. The London Rowing Club's four-
boat has been borrowed by the Argo-.
nauts and will be ready tomorrow. Ned
Skippon has gone to bring it to Henley,
and the Toronto four will row in this
shell at the races.
Judging by the form the Argonauts'
four have been showing in tlieir spiu
over the course since their arrival, many
authorities who have been watching
them carefully look upon them as pr<
ble winners. A "good deal of the time of
the crew has been occupied in sprinting.
Percy Galfc, the president of the Argonauts, has been to Putney, and while
there examined the London Rowing.
Club's four and expresses his entire satisfaction Avith it, and is sure, the boat Avill
suit the Argonauts. Mr. Gait is determined to allow the men no opportunity
to make excuses if they lose.
Bush Thompson lias just returned
from an hour's hard practice, Avith a
vieAV to' reducing his Aveight. Charley
Goldman is not as confident of AAinuing
as he has been, but he is Avorking diligently and is uot in the least discouraged.

Chicago, June=28.—-The latest recruits

girls', .'who.'have been draAviug 75 cents
per day in the butteriue department of
the Armour AA'orks. They asked for an increase to $1, and upon refusal AAralked

men that the raise in avages Avhieh
caused many to resume AA'ork is only temporary and there is a strong undercurrent of discontent running in: the entire

Boers Ecady for War.
London,    June   28.—Tho    iicavs   that
reaches London from the TransA-md is of
somewhat conflicting character.    On the
one  hand  there are  reports  of A'arious
meetings of the Boer burghers, at Avhieh
the modified franchise for the IJitlauders
has   been   approved,  showing  that  the
situation  generally  is  changed  for the
better and that prospects of peace have
improved.     From  another  source, Iioaav
ever, comes au account ofthe Boers plans
in case of Avar.    These plans are giA'en in
, detail.    Commandant-general  Piet Jou-
bert could command 30,000  men,  mostly
armed with Mauser rifles.     The artillery
has forty-six quick-firing  cannon.' of'-the
latest pattern and 1000 trained artillerymen.
The Boer tactics" Avould be offensive.
On the declaration of. Avar a strong force
.would march .to Kimberley, Cape Colony,
Avhieh is practically undefended. Kimberley cjiptured, they AA'ould Woav up the
De Beers diamond mines, and simultaneously Avith this movement the Cape-
BuluAA'ayo railway avou Id be destroyed at
various points by the Orange Free State
burghers. Then the Boers would advance southward ou Cape Town, recruiting on the.Ayay from tlie Dutch population of Gape Colony.
Joubert calculates that he Avould be
master of Gape Toavii fourteen days after
the declaration of Avar. With Cape Town
in his possession he expects he Avould be
able to dictate terms of peace.
For the protection of Pretoria Joubert
relies on the ueAV forts at Johannesburg,
Avhieh would also ser ve"'■"'■'to OA-craAve the
Uitlanders, for they are so ".placed' as to

Will Be Tackled Next.
The inembers of the public Avorks committee hud a lengthy session yesterday
afternoon in Avhieh they listened to the
proposals of three different electrical
men as to the best method of improving
the city's electric light service. Alderman
Fletcher presided and with him Avero
mayor Neelands and alderman Hillyer.
The first proposition made Avas from
Thomas Hilliard, a representative of an
electrical company. His proposition appeared to be advanced in the. interest of
the Bonnington Falls company in that it
was altogether beyond the means of the
council to entertain it. There Avere two
sides to it but both Avere equally expensive. The one aviis adA'aiiced Avith the
view of making the present direct system
of three Avires efficient, and0 the other-
proposed the tearing out of the Avhole
system as at present installed and the
putting in the alternating system. His
figures .Avill come before the council at its
next meeting on Thursday, July Gth, but
they .will. likely be regarded as pro-
hibitiA**e. r
The second proposition came  from  A.
L. Campbell of the West Kootenay PoAver
&'Light Company at  Bonnington  Falls. ;
It  AA'as   the   old ■■■•proposition   that   the
Bonnington Falls company sliould supply |
the city Avi tli  poAver  for electrical pur-";
poses at the rate of $50 per horse pOAvei'
per annum.   'With the highest degree bi
efficiency  he    estimated   that   a    horse   ■'
poAver   Avould   furnish   fourteen   lamps ;_
of     10-candle      power       He      figured 22'
200 horse poAver  sliould supply the city:-
Avith 3000  lamps  of  16 caudle poAver, so
tliat upon his shoAving the  pOAA'er heces- ..
sary  to  furnish  the  3000  lamps, would :
cost the city $10,000 per annum, in addir
tion  to  an  initial charge of sbniethiiig
like $3500 for transformers.  This Avorked . ;
out a cost to the city of a shade under 33/y

AVith respect  to poAver he thought that
for the coining Avinter the present power
AA'ould'  be sufficient in  view of the fact
that by cutting  the system in two aud
making certain minor imprOA-ements the

Tin?   public  AA'orks   committee  of the
y,   city council is considering plans  for en-
liu-ging the electric liglit plant.    One of
the parties consulted is evidently stand-
_' "' ing in AA'ith the Bonnington   Falls power
Ijliinb people, hut  they f-houkl   have  no
■ consideration, for AA'hateA'cr is done, the
city sliould not go into partnership Avith
any corporation.    Jf the  city  can  only
*   supply 2500 lamps AA'ith its present pOAA'er,
it should not make any effort to supply
5000 until such time as it has the requisite
power.     The   city   has  uoav   250 horse
poAver dcA'elopcd, AA'hich i.s  sufficient to
_. o_[ierate_C!flif'ic.ntly_2,'500_I_fi_c._p._lainps_<in(.L
no more.     Jt has dynamos that AA'ill supply current for 2500 lamps and no more.
Can additional poAA'er be deA'elopcd AA'ith
the present Avuter supply?    If not, AA'hat
is the use of increasing   tlie  capacity  of
the dynamos?  Before expending a dollar
on a iicaa* plant, the city should ascertain
Iioaa'AA'ater can be procured  for clevolop-
ing po\A'c_r,  for AA-ithout power dynamos
AA'ill be useless.    If electric light AA'as sold
by   motor  measurement.,  instead  of by
candle power, the present plant AA'ould bo
found   to   be  suffioicntly  large  for  the
town's,    recjuiroments.     .Anyway, before
.placiiig uu order for an additional plaj.it
it niight be well to consult an  hydraulic
.    engineer.    Once the city lias power, then
call in the electrical engineer.
The postoffice department is-after the
Vancouver World for a 'flagrant violation
of the postoffice regulations. It has been
sending out bills for subscriptions nicely
folded in papers mailed to subscribers,
tlms effecting a saving of two cents for
CArery bill sent out. The World is one of
the papers that has been bitter in its denunciation of attorney-general Martin
because of his utterances at a banquet in
iiossland. Jt is said that the postoffice
department AA'ill giA'e tlie World the
■maximum of punishment.
Till-, rates for electric light at. Nelson
have ahvays been from no to 100 pot-
eel it lower, than the rates charged at;
Jiosslaud. At Iiossland*. the Houuington
Falls   Power    Company ' furnishes; ,the
poAver to the local electric lighting company for a percentage of the gross i-ca*-
enue. One of the terms of the agreement is' that eArery 1(5 c. p. lamp used
shall bring in eighty-five cents revenue.
The poAver company tried to make a similar arrangement AA'ith the city of Nelson
last year, but the council avou Id have none
of it, and they Avere right, for it meant a
uniform raise of over 70 per cent in electric light rates, as avoII as taking the
poAA'or company in as a partner. The
City of Nelson should not haA'e anything
AvhateA'cr to do Avith the liomiington
Palls poAA'or people.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRKNT MATE OK INTEREST PAID  LUCK   IN   MINE   FINDING.  An old-time prospector sat in a saloon  in  uCripple   Creek,   Colorado,   groAvling  about his luck.    He had been prospecting  for twenty years and  knew all about indications and formations and could sling  technical terms by the yard, but he had  never made a find that sold for more than  a few hundred dollars.    He said that all  the best mines in   America, had been discovered   by men who  did not know one  rock   from another,  and he   Avent  on to  cite instances that he knew  of in Colorado.    Among  them   was   mentioned   the  Little Johnny at Leadville.    lathe winter of   I879-S0 three  lads���John  Ciu-ran,  Thomas Kelly and James IT.  Donovan���  left  Galena, Illinois,  and went  to Lead-'  A'ille,   where they  dug away  six  feet of  snow on Breeze Hill  to put up a cabin.  In   this Avay  they froze and  starved all  Avinter.    Young  Kelly died  from illness  brought on by exposure and privation,  and was soon followed by Curran, after  Avhom   the  mine  is named.    Donovau is  still  living.   They knew nothing about  mining, located  their claim  hap-hazard,  and yet discovered one of the richest gold  mines in the  Avorld.    But Kelly's  heirs  are  said to luwe sold  their interest for  only  $1000, aiid  the  Currans for $2500.  Tlie amount Donavan got is unknown.  August Rische and  George  T.

Doyle and Burns  took ii]) this land in the belief that .something was better than nothing. They  set for Jolm Harnnui, who was employed  in driving a street scraper in Colorado  Springs, to come and help them dig on  their claims. Harinan's mining experience consisted-of what he had learned as  a child in picking slate from the screens  of Pennsylvania coal mines. For months  the trio put in hard work sinking their  shaft without a sign of payore. Their,  acquaintances sought to discourage them,  but they persisted, and Avere reAvardcd  by strikiug a vein that made them, millionaires. '  Possibly Dennis Sullivan studied mining and mineralogy between stations  Avhen he Avas a conductor on the New  ���York-Central back in 1S7G, but it is doubtful if he Avould have applied this knowledge had it not been for his weak lungs,  which drove lii.ni to Colorado. He helped  to locate the May Queen silver mine at  Leadville, and the money he receiA'ed for  Jus interest.in.it enabled him to buy into  the .Dead Pine at Cripple Creek, which  gave him his fortune.  The Creede boom Avas started by the  finding of some good-looking stuff on  Baeheior mountain by a poor prospector  named George K. Smith. He had scratched all over the mining districts Avithout  success and finally got the idea that luck  might hit him up around Creede, where  Holy Moses had found ore. Mrs. Mary A.  Coffin of BuenaNista, Avas impressed Avith  the same idea, and she and her husband  Avent to Creede and ran a boarding-house  in order to grubstake Smith. One day in  July Smith came into the .cabin' and said  in a joking Avay, "I've found our fortunes  this time," and he told what he had  found. Neither had any idea, that an immensely rich mine had.been found, but it  ing link between the thumb of a catcher's  mitt and "the body of the glove. The ins  and out of a. pitcher's work, the moisture  and a few other causes broke this ou  catcher Chance's mitt, a speedy straight  broke through, a passed ball came along  and lost the game in the ninth aud literally gaAre it aAvay in the tenth. The only  kick the" fans haA'e coming is that some  progressi\*e mind on the Chicago ball  team did not suggest it be mended during  the game. Then the second ball would  not have come, and the tAvo teams might  have been playing yet.  Federation Expected Next Session.  London.

Win-  field Scott Stratton, Ayho located the  famous Independence' mine, had ahvays  beeu a carpenter, and neArer got rich fol-  loAviiig his trade. It Avas nearly a year  after tlie great rush to Cripple Creek that  lie picked out the group where the mine  is located. He had seen the ledge a hundred times before he located it, and  others, Avith greater or less experience as  miners, had seen and examined it a thousand times and passed it by just as he  had. No one, not even Stratton, asserts  that the discovery of the Independence  Avas anything but pure luck. He happened to be fortune's favorite at the time.  The experience of Jimmy Boyle, the  millionaire mayor of Victor, in tlie Cripple Creek district, also illustrates the element of luck in mine-finding in Colorado.  Boyle, who had learned the carpenter's  trade, but did not folloAv it, aviis driving  a hack in Maniton Avhen the Cripple  Creek excitement began in 1891, In Colorado Springs Avas a young plumber  iianied Jimmy'Burns.
