 IN THE RICH BOUNDARY COUNTRY  Mineral Found Everywhere.  The Dewdney trail is becoming less and  less a means of communication between  the basins of the Columbia and Kettle  rivers, and it is destined to disappear altogether. Part of it has been much used  as a connecting link between Rossland  and the Sophia Mountain camp; but even  this part will soon give way to a road  down main Sheep creek to the Red Mountain railway, while the trail of the summit from Sheep creek to Cascade City i.s  too much of a good thing to encourage  much travel over it, and as soon as trains  are running lietwoon Brooklyn and Cascade it must inevitably disappear. Still  one sees the country from a different  point of view by riding leisurely through  it, and the picture one gets is different  entirely from that suggested by being  shut up in a Pullman car and deposited  at one's destination, or from being hustled over rough roads iu a thorough brace  wagon and thrown out at hotel doors at  all hours of the day and night. A set of  impressions is received that will always  be an interesting reminiscence, and is  only too well worth describing if the description Avere adequate.  One enters the Boundary country proper when the summit between Sheep creek  and Christina lake is reached. One can  look back and see tlie shaft house of the  Velvet mine on the west slope of Sophia  mountain, and a few steps further catch  a glimpse of the Kettle River valley close  to Grand Porks amidst what most descriptive writers call a sea of mountains.  But seeing a place and being there are  two entirely different things, as was painfully impressed'on the prophet Moses at  Pisgah. From this summit tho enormous  size of the Boundary country strikes one  immediately.    North  fifteen miles is the  : Burnt Basin camp, Avest the range dividing Christina lake from the North Fork,  still west the range, between Greenwood  and Grand Forks, still west'the range betAveen Fourth  of July  creek and Bouii-  ' clary creek, and AArest still farther the  range, with its higher peaks still covered,  witli.snow, in Avhicli Camp McKinney  lies. And here, there and everyAvhere ���  through that enormous country are prosperous miners, mining companies, toAvn-  sifee owners and railroad builders at Avork  Avithout, so far, one 'dollar .having come  out of the country to recompense theiu.  The lockup of capital in all its different  forms is enormous, incalculable. It would  break the greatest corporation ..in the  y\voi*Idii\i"id(yep iCiss^a^oiHplished^^by���the^  ".tiriiffct'  ����*��4h&?

The country is  exhausted 'Avith tlie development of the  last year, which has brottgnt in no returns Us yet. There is every where grea,t  and justifiable expectancy but that butters no parsnips at the present tiine.  Gr^eiiAVood wliich lias had a boom is siifr  feping more than tyny other place. But  every camp in the country is quiet* It  is going to: be longer before** tlie raihvay  is in working shape thitn the people in  the country imagine. At present the  bi'idge gang and, tracklayers are creeping  'down Christina lake, and they have quite  a bit of work ahead before tliey get to  Grand Forks lot alone Greenwood. The  liveliest places in the country are close  to the mines where a clcA'elopment payroll keeps money in circulation.  The second day's ride from Grand  Forks to Midway is an, easy stage. There  is a very eoiiAreuieut trail going through  "White's camp noAAr called Central camp  and coming out at Michvay itself. It is  at least four miles shorter than the  DoAvdney and quite as good going. Midway is on the alert over the actions of  tlie Great Northern surveyors who are  .making connections betAveen this point  and Republic. It may be an interesting  speculation for those avIio combatted the  the Kettle RiArer raihvay whether a line  tapping British Columbia through Republic or a line tapping Republic through  British Columbia is most in accordance  Avitli their peiwerted idea*of patriotism.  From Grand Forks west a great change  in the trade relations of the country is  noticeable at once. The ordinary traveler  is first struck with the fact that he meets  with different'brands of Scotch Avhiskey  and cigars good  enough, doubtless,  but  different.    JIe finds that it is so with all  goods.     The supplies for this large country come in from Poiitieton and the merchants deal  with jobbers   in   Vancouver  and Victoria.    The people also  read  the  Coast papers depending for news on the  Spokesman-lteviow.    Here  is   wliere the  new railway is   going   to   work   a   great  revolution.     The  eastern   drummer and  the eastern jobber   will   inevitably supplant the Coast trader.     If our   cities in  Kootenay are alive the trade may be held  only a short distance to the east.   'But in  any  case   it   will   leave   Vancouver aud  Victoria ancl   go,   if   not   to   Nelson   and  Rossland,     to    Toronto    and   Montreal.  Through   an   American   road   the  Coast  merchantsmightdoubtfully havo retained  their trade, without it they Avill at once  and with startling rapidity be driven out  of the field.    They  wi 11 lose for trading  purposes    Greenwood,     Midway,     Rock  Creek, Camp McKinney, the upper valley  of the Kettle river and the camps of the  west fork.    This may be regrettable or it  may not.    One result it  should  have  if  tliere is any wisdom in the Kootenays, it  should make the Avhole mining area from  Trout Lake to Camp McKinney, at least,  (even if the  East  Kootenay  country  i.s  not included) an industrial -mint, able to  control the affairs   of  British  Columbia.  Here might be inserted an eloquent paragraph, but  the   facts   being   given  the  eloquence may be lost to the imagination.  Living ih a place like Rossland and in  an era of boiled -shirts and afternoon tea  parties, one often Avonders  Avhether the  prospector Avho Avhittled sticks  and discussed the universe round   the  stove  in  the store has departed.    A good many of  them are up the Avest fork of the Kettle  river.    They are Avearing out shoe leather  in that section  and  generally -maintain  that it is a  good  country.    It  is  a Ioav  grade smelting proposition and there is a  year or tAvo's  patient assessment AArork  ahead of the claim OAvners yet. .  From Boundary Avest one enters a A^ery  strange country. It is an old country  and many queer survivals exist therei  One old gentleman stated that he had  been in there "for forty-tliree years.

Consequently the Cariboo is good  for    some     considerable      time      even  if      it      does     not     go      down      any  further   or   becaliie   too base   to  work  profitably.   A number of companies have  this year taken Jjold  of other  prospects  round1 the Cariboo group.    A live  stainp  inill is iioW in operation on  tlie  Granite  and   Banner   and   a mill and   hoisting  machinery is to be erected   this  summer  on the Watei'loo, a property Avliich looks  first rate.    Camp McKinney   has  a  very  bright future before it and a few yours  Will see quite an output of gold from that  camp.  Anyone avIio Avishes to look over the  country farther Avest had better go in  the other Avay. Camp McKinney is the  Avestern limit of a journey through the  Boundary country, but from all sources  comes tile same story of mineral, mineral,  mineral, AArhile surely if sloAvly from the  east comes the advance of enterprise and  capital which is eventually to make the  Avealth of this enormous stretch of country available and the country itself productive.  SPORTING EVENTS OF THE DAY  Cricket Season   Opened.  The Nelson Cricket Club  opened  their  season at last with a. practice   match   on  the recreation grounds  yesterday afternoon, and none too  soon, for  the  match  against Rossland comes off on   the  22ud,  and everyone expects  the  cricketers   to  follow the example  of   the   lacrosse and  baseball players.    A   goodly   number  of  players assembled and a game of  twelve  a side was  played   Avith  alderman  Fletcher  and   F. A.   Macrae  captaining   the  two sides.    F. Fletcher avou the toss ancl  he and Elliot opoiied the innings.    Nothing of particular interest transpired  until II. A. Barton had been in  some  time.  Once he Avas let he punished the bowling  unmercifully, being   eventually   not  out  Avith 50 runs   to  his credit.    The   other  noticeable feature of the  game  Avas the  extreme slackness of the Holding of both  sides.      Shortly  after   live   o'clockr the  batsmen had accumulated 112"runs  Avith  four Avickets still to fall, ancl accordingly  the innings Avas declared closed.    The innings of the  other  team  opened  rather  disastrously, the very first ball delhrered  by Fletcher uncling its Avay to the stumps.  W. A. Jowett  boAvled cunning tAvisters  from the other end  AArhieh  the  batsmen  seemed rather to despise, but  AArhich   resulted    fatally    for    several   of   them.  Eventually   the  innings    closed for  44  runs, Fletcher's combination .winning by  08.^ - Appendend  are  the  names  of the  players and the full score:  FLKTCJIlOiVS  "KI.lSV'KX'.'*'���" '    ������-:���-*  F.

The decision of the railway committee  of the pri\-y council   to  grant the Kootenay   Valleys   road   running  powers over  tin; Crow's Nest fass road has not, so far,  affected  the   local   situation.    The deadlock   still   continues.    The  arrangement,  it will be   remembered,   was that in consideration of  a   yearly   rental   of $175 a  mile, the Kootenay  Valleys road were to  have running powers  for  ten years over  eight  and   one-half   miles  of  road,  two  years notice being necessary for the termination-of the  lease.    The trouble iioav  is the  place  the  Kootenay Valleys road  haA'e chosen to .join, onto the Crew's Nest  road   after   crossing    the   international  boundary line.    At that point the Crow's  Nest road is on  an embankment 25 feet  high, and   the proposed   road   would endeavor to climb up it  to the Crow's Nest  road.    This  the   Ci-oav's  Nest  engineers  claim  will interfere  Avith  the road bed  and endanger the embankment,'and they  refuse to alloAV  such  an  approach to be  made.    It is  stated  by  those avIio knoAA'*  the ground that there is a place about a  mile ancl a half further north Avhere the  junction can be safely effected, and it is  thought that this  Avill  be the final solution of the  difficulty.    In the meantime  the situation remains as it was before the  decision of the railway committee.  Railway Notes.  . W. W. "Whyte, manager of Canadian  Pacific lilies west of Fort. William, and  R.

The Pope Against Eussia.  London, July S.���Owing probably to  the hour at ��� Which ��� cardinal Vaughn's  speech at the Fourth of July banquet  Avas delivered, which preA'ented the majority of the papers from reporting it,  the speech has not attracted its share of  'public attention. This is especially noticeable in vieAV of the pains taken to  spread the information that it practically Was inspired from Rome. The '-important passage of course is that dealing  'With the future of Asia, its description of  Russia as a great despotic pdAvcr and its  reference to America's interest in the  Avelfare and future of the Asiatic continent.

Washington,     July    S.���Ambassador  Choate   has   not   communicated   to   the  state department   the   result of any representations he   has   made   to lord Salisbury in London respecting the modus Vivendi.    Although   it  is  be!ieA'ed almost  hopeless to  expect a successful outcome  of     these     direct     negotiations     with  London,    it     i.s     not     regarded     here  as     inevitable     that    a    hostile'1 clash  will     follow      failure      to     secure     a  modus.    Confidence is   expressed   in   the  sufficiency  of   the  present arrangement  backed by the  sound  common sense -ofthe. officials  of  the   United   States, and  Canada, now in the disputed territory in  Alaska   to  prevent   a  collision.     As   a  matter  of  fact  the   United   States  and  Great Britain have actually Avorked under  a tacitly understood modus viveudi.' The  existence of  the  understanding  on this  point is manifested in the ready acquies-  ence by  the  United   States government]]::  in the suggestion by the British foreign.'.','  office   that   it   might  tend "to 'prevent*:;-.-'  trouble if the Avar department abandoned  its plan of sending a garrison of troops  to.Pyramid harbor..  On its  part  the   British   goA'ernment  shoAved its disposition  to .maintain  the  status quo by quietly but firmly restraining the  Canadian  officers  and mounted  police,   avIio   were    greatly,  harrassiiigyy  American miners passing OArer the  trails.  If this spirit continues to be exhibited on  both sicles there i.s little fear that failure ,  of the London negotiatians Avill reside in :  anything more serious than anotlier long;;  disagreeable 'postponement ,of  the final  settlement.   The British embassy is simi- :  larly Avithout advices from the foreign  office as to directing  of  recent  negotia-  tions, and decline to discuss   any  phase  of the Alaskan question.

Sudbury nre glad to get S1.25 for a ten-hour day, and  why should the lirilish Columbia miners get ��.'i.;'iO for an  eight-hour day /  The foregoing-words show that the  British Columbia government has alienated the mining brokers. It might be  nearer 'tho facts to say the eastern  brokers; but the western brokers are like  ���them in their inability to see any virtue  in a laAV which increases fche cost of mining for the benefit of the miners. Ontario  AA'ould sooner level the wages, of tho Sudbury miners up to the British Columbia  standard than level the AA'ages of the  British Columbia miners down to the  Sudbury standard. "It is a disgrace to  the country that the nickel Avealth of  Sudbury, Avhicli has filled the pockets of  alien millionaires, has never paid decent  living Avages to Canadian laborers. British Columbia does avoII to resist any  approach to. the Sudbury standard of  AA'ages. The brokers avIio are shouting  uoav against $3.50 for an eight-hour day  in British Columbia Avould soon be shouting against $3 for a ten-hour day. Ontario objects to the conditions AA'hich  haA'e enabled a monopoly to extract the  Sudbury nickel on its oavu terms, and  those conditions haA'e not been sucli a  blessing to the Sudbury district that they  should be reproduced in British Columbia.  ing permitted to vote. The change will  necessitate the issue of thirty millions of  dollars of bonds, for it i.s designed to haA'e  ���in adequate and sanitarily perfect supply, regardless of cost. Every owner Avill  be required to equip his premises Avith  sufficient piping and faucets, official instructions being rigid, lie Avill be expected to use all the water needed for  domestic use, for lawns aud streets, and  for this water there is to be no charge.  In this, the experiment Avill differ from  any yet tried, the ordinary plan being to  permit the city, as an oAvner to make ;i  profit. The aim of Ncav Orleans is not  alone to secure ample Avater, but it involves the construction of a modern and  complete system of drainage, such as has  always been lacking there. It i.s believed that the Iree use of -water, together with means for carrying it off.'  will do much to promote general health  and banish the tendency toward epidemic  disease. If tliere is basis for this, and  that tliere i.s surely seems reasonable, the  project Avill result in such substantial  good that it would be cheap at any  figure. Naturally, the matter will bo  closely Avatched and out of the lesson  drawn from the outcome other cities will  draAv information that Avill go far towtvi'd  producing a solution of the problem.  54  ;orrs bay  IY.

Paty's arrest by an eye-witness: '"Colonel du Paty was at dinner with his wife  and wife's mother at his residence, 17  Avenue Bosquet, when a colonel Avas introduced who whispered that he had  come to arrest him. The whole thing  was done iu a gentlemanly fashion. Colonel du Paty apologized to the ladies and  left the table, and accompanied his friend  ���to Cherce Midi prison.  Is n<>w prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin., B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on, District.  Henry Walters, of Baltimore, has given  forty-five thousand dollars to that city to  provide two public bath-houses.'  U.S. Grant, jr., a grandson of general  U. S. Grant,/has been appointed a professor in the 'Northwestern-university.'' Mr.  Grant will have the chair of geology.  Tlie German government has refused  to permit.Sarah Bernhardt to play Hamlet in Alsace-Lorraine unless she plays it  first in some important German city outside of the proscribed district.  Richard W. Thomson, formerly secretary of the navy, reached his ninetieth  birthday on the ninth ultimo, and in the  evening braved a storm to attend a dinner given in his honor by the Thomson  club in Terre Haute, the city where he  lives. Colonel Thompson was a member  of congress twenty years before the beginning of the Civil War. t  It is now knoAvn that the breaking of  the engagement Jf Helen, the daughter  of the Russian grand duke Vladimir, and  prince Maximilian of Baden was not due  to their different religions, but to the  fact that princess Helen is in love with  tlie czar's brother, grand duke Michael.  She. flatly refused to wed prince Malimil-  ian.'

He  wiis shot at half-past one hi the after-  : noon, and because he was thought to*  haA'e beei/f killed was not treated by the  surgeon  until  nine  o'clock vthat" night.  = His escape from death on the field is little  short of miraculous. If he recovers, however, he Avill be crippled for life.  According to the London Critic, there  AA'as "no royal biography published under  bhe personal supervision of a British  sovereign until that of the priuce concert  appeared. Queen Victoria now spends a  considerable portion of her leisure in  reading, or in haA'ing rend to her, the  Xxroofs of forthcoming! publications in,  wiifcjjh: she is interested;. It i�� said that  this is /the real Reason whjf. both the official bipgropliy of the duchess of Teckand  =the^mQre^eagei'/l5Lii.waitedJife^ofJord_  Bdaconsfield liave beeu delayed so long.  In each case her majesty has insisted on  reading ev/ery document and letter..  Emperor William has invented a new  simile to describe the German nations  Speaking at the distribution of prizes  Won in the Elbe regatta, in Avhieh his  majesty steered liis yacht Meteor into a  mud-bank, frOm AA'hich it had to be toWed  by a torpedo-boat, the einperor said that  "the German.people are like a thoroughbred horse, A\?hieh alloAvs nobody to bridle  hinii but will maintaii/f the foyemOst  ' place." As this folloAVed a declaration of  Germany's ability to secure .peace' on the  basis won by the empei*oi*''S grandfather  and father, it is being asked whether the  reference to a horse that can not be  bridled was not a covert allusion to Germany's attitude at The Hague.  Cellainy Storer, the new minister to  Spain, avIio was "officially lost" for a  Aveek oi* two* but who is now in Madrid  representing the United States at the  Spanish court, is the son of the late judge  Bellamy Storer of Oinciimatti, and a personal friend of president McKinley. He  came out of Harvard in 1887, and two  years later was au assistant United States  district attorney for southern Ohio. In  1890 Mr. Storer avms elected to congress  and Avas returned for a second term. A  profoundly read jurist, he is Avell informed in international law. The Storers  were among the earliest settlers of the  state of Maine. His mother was Elizabeth Drinker of Philadelphia, aiid she  herself Avas descended directly from the  eo-pioneers pf William Perm.  Major-general Wood, U. S. V., who is  now in Washington, B.C., having been  called home from Cuba for promotion;, it  is said, owing to his excellent adniinistra-;  tion as military-governor of the province  of Santiago, tells this characteristic story  of the dislike of the' Cubans to injure  one's feelings: "A few days ago, Avhen I  was out of the city, Trujillo, the Cuban  journalist rAVho issued a paper in New  York for a Avliile and then went back to  Santiago to renew the publication there,  printed an article giving the president  and the secretary of war fits. When I  returned I saw the article and sent for  him. As he walked into my office lie exclaimed : 'My dear sir, I so regret that  this has happened. I wouldn't have had  it so for anything, but you" returned four  days before you said you would return.  I should have knoAvn. '��� Really, I wasn't  to blame. I intended this should appear  when you Avere away, so that it Avouldn't  hurt jrour feelings.    I am so A'ery sorry.'"  A recent issue of Le Matin outlines the  defense that colonel du Paty de Clam is  espected to make before the court-martial AA'hich is shortly to try him ou  charges of forgery and using forged documents. Le Matin says that Du Paty has  documentary proof that in all his actions  .he was obeying the com mauds of his  superiors of the general staff. The  proofs in question were taken to Brussels  last fall by the colonel's Avife, avIio is the  daughter of the duchesse d'Ursel, honorary grand mistress of the queen of the  Belgians' household, and is god-daughter  of her majesty. The documents have  been placed in the possession of the  D'Ursel family, and AA'ill be presented by  du Paty's lawyer at the court-martial.  The   foiloAving   account   is given of du  H. D. Ashcroft  BLACKSMITHING  AND EXPERT  HORSESHOEING  English merchants in Constantinople  are exercised by the campaign carried on  by the Turkish censor against trademarks and ach'ertisements entering the  county. Two recent examples illustrate  the scope of his control. A firm designed  a trade-mark for use in Turkey, in Avhieh  the star and crescent formed apart. The  design Avas forbidden. Another firm had  the advertisement and directions thatac-  conipanied their goods���a special brand  of soap���translated into Arabic. The  translation AA'as done in London, and iu  the phrase AA'hich in English read "Soap-  makers to', her majesty the queen," appeared a title AA'hich'in Turkey is only applied to the sultan. The censor offered  the importer the alternate of returning  the soap to England or removing the obnoxious label. In the meantime, British  merchants are warned against sending  any goods to Turkey bearing trademarks,  or circulars which could by any stretch  of the immagination be in any AA'ay connected with Islamism or the Sultan.  Mrs. Emmons Blaine recently Avent before the board of assessors of Chicago and  filed a complete schedule of all her possessions, of Avliich the personality alone  called for taxation on $1,563,000. Although Mrs. Blaine is by no means the  richest individual in Chicago���there are  doubtless some thousands richer than she  ���her schedule of personal property is the  FULL LINE OF  largest eA'er offered in that city. Mrs.  Blaine's procedure has'given cold shivers  to some of her friends and relatives, but  she says that she has come to the conclusion that the rich must fulfill their obligations to the state, that property own-  ers should tell the whole truth about  tlieir posiessions, and pay the full tax  tliereon. The modesty and simplicity of  Mrs. Blaine's act makes it especially  not dole.  German Comments on the War.  Bkkt.in, July 8.���The press comments  on the war iu tho Philippines, and the  decision of president McKinley to increase the force of American troops  there, are not hopeful for American success. The'difficulty of the situation is  regarded as confirmatory of the views,  expressed before the rebellion. TheVos-  sisch Zeitung makes merry over what it  calls general Otis' Napoleonic art of preparing bulletins, and adds that Avith negligence of the most obvious ..facts, he lias  been reiterating for months that the resistance bf the insurgents was broken,  their armies Avere in a complete dissolution, and that the end of the Avar is in  sight.

James Byron and Mrs. James Byron  were brought before stipendiary magistrate Crease yesterday morning' upon  the charge of having in their possession  stolen goods, the property of the estate  of Lizzie Waite. The evidence of provincial constable Wilson was taken. He  was the'officer who had locked up the  property after the death of Lizzie AVaite  and hearing that the house at Kuskonook  had been broken into he A'isited it and  found that several articles of wearing-  apparel had been taken. Other evidence  was adduced to the effect that the goods  later were found in the possession of the  prisoners at the time of their arrest.
