The I,ondoii correspondent of The

mining markets here are in a very sensitive condition. We lire either un the eve
of n boom or a slump, and 1 think it is a
toss-up whicli."
Mr. W. II. Khmistcn, ol Calgary, one
of tho directors of tho Bald Mountain
Development Co., (Iolden, has just returned from Bald mountain to Calgary
and in an interview with a representative of the Calgary Herald, says everything looks splendid. " We have got
through the ledge and the hanging wall
is a dark slate, which is tho best indication we could have. We are drifting on
the ledge now to get out the five-foot pay
streak, which is mixed up with blue
quartz, assaying from H" to $05 pel' ton.
Of course the blue quart's, which is about
18 feet wide, is not so good; but still it
is paying ore. There are about 150 tons
on the dump awaiting shipment. We
have got in a good three month's supply
of provisions, so as to enable us to go on
working (or the best of tlie winter." We
trust good results mny be shown.
Mr. .John Jeffery, formerly of Spcncc,
Ontario, who has been prospecting in

summer, arrived in (iolden yesterday on
his way to visit his friends ill tlie cast.'

" Mining is a risk." What in life isn't
a "risk"' Mercantile pursuits, manufacturing cntoprisos, busin'nsn propositions of all kinds involve big risks. The
slightest movement is a " risk." To eat
or drink or travel is n ." risk." The
farmer is Iho riskiest of all. He bets on
the rain nnd the European markets ; on
the weather si*; months ahead, nnd the
likely demand for his crop; yet men arc
not dissuaded from any ordinary pursuits of life by the element of "risk."

During the present month thero have
been three free minors' licenses issued.
Four new claims have been recorded
and three certificates of work granted
and there has been one transfer. Mining
business is evidently not brisk in Golden
mining division this month.
A public mooting of mining men and
those interested iu the mining industry
in East Kootenay is to be held in the
Columbia House, (iolden, on Tuesday
evening, 10th November current, at 8
o'clock, to consider various questions of
importance affecting tho mining industry
nnd also to take steps to form a mining
association. This is an association that
is very much required in the district to
represent the views of the mining community not only to the provincial
government, but also to the outside
world, and also to take united action
Two Locomotives Collide���A Car of
Dynamite \Vre0k0d-CI03e Call.
The Calgary Herald in discussing the
collision says a crash like thunder and
shriek of escaping steam startled tlie
quietude of tho city of Cnlgnry a few
minutes before 12 o'clock on Sunday
night. A few seconds later1, crowds of
people wore running in the dirction of
the C.I'.U. coal sheds, where they found
that an cast bound train pulled hy
engine 127 had Collided with a westbound train pulled by 44. The track in
the neigborhood of tho coal sheds presented a scene in which tho piled up
debris of cars and freight and two badly
demoniljZQd engines were the principal
features. Tlio tender of the east-bound
train had partly telescoped a box car
immediately behind it when the collision
took place. This car was said to contain
several tons of dyinnite, which, fortun-
otely for the trainmen nnd spectatt-rs, ns
well ns for the cily generally, did not
explode. Had it done so, the consequences would certainly have lieen most
terrible, and many a Calgary home
would havo been desoiate to-day.
The main line was blocked  by   the
wreck and both tlie east and west bound
express trains were unable to pass until
Monday morning.    A

accident and no time was lost in clearing!
the main line.    The dynamite was care* I
fully removed from the box car and after
a  time  people   begun to soiimmon up
courage to approach the spot whero the
mon  wero   working.    Several derailed
cars were ultimately moved on   to the
track and pulled out of tin: way, and the
broken cars and freight of various kinds
wore thrown temporarily into tlie ditch.
The trdnnien were somewhat reticent
::s to tlie cause of the accident, hut it
was learned that the trouble arose from
un open switch nnd the fact that the
cast bound train was unable to slow up
in lime, as tlie brakes would not bite
owing to a frosty mil. Tlie engineer nnd
fireman of each train jumped when they
saw it wss the only chance of saving
tlieir lives, so that fortunately no loss of
life occurred. It ia n remarkable coincidence that thu two engines whicli
collided were the same engines that were
in tlie recent accident in the Calgary
yard.
How narrowly the greater part of tho
city escaped destruction may bo gathered
from the fact that iu tho memorable
Johannesburg accident uo less than 1100
people were killed by the explosion of
live tons of dynamite. Tho accident was
indeed a bad one, but like many others,
it might have been a great deal worse.
Whet wus wrong with the dynamite that
it did not go off? The experiment would
have been an interesting tine���in the
interests of science.

difficulties of transport in some parts of
that region is now going tho American
press. A syndicate wus negotiating for
the purchase oi a silver-lend mine and
despatched an expert to the prnporty.
His report wus so favorable that tlie
purchase price demanded by the owners
seemed absurdly inadequate, further
investigation wns�� therefore decided upon,
ond a hard-heinleil limn, who seems to
have been very different from the ordinary mining expert, was selected for the
purpose. His visit resulted iu tho
leccipt of the following terse comiuulca-
tioni "Dear Sirs,���I have tnado an
examination of the Cliff Dweller mine,
and report that tho ore is here as
represented, that it assays high, that it
is here in plenty, hut to get your supplies in and ore out you will need a pack
train of bald eagles." The question
whether tlie bargain was completed or
not in left to the reader's imagination.���

The Hon. Clifford Sifton, Minister of

uayR aud Tin: MiNKit's representative
had tlie pleasure of mooting him and
Mr. Hewitt llostock tin' Kootomiyn representative in tho Dominion Parliament,
at Uevelntolie last Sunday.
Mr. Sifton and Mr. Jlostock had ]m\
arrived from Kamloops where they had
been interviewed and banqtiettcd. Tlie

thinks it has got it and- its Board of
Trade is endeavoring t-> persuade the
5linister of the Interior that tho all-
Canadian route should start from Kamloops, whereas the best, tlio shortesl
and the easiest route; for an All-Canadian road is from Donald up the Columbia and Canoe rivers. This is indisputable.
Mr. Sifton and Mr. Ucstoul: returned
that afternoon to Sicamons Junction to
go down the Okanagan valley tn Vernon
aud thenco on to Southern Kootenny.
Mr. Sifton in determined tn ascertain for
himself the vastness of tho Province's
Immense resources) and what is absolutely necessary on the part uf the
Dominion Government to nm^i in developing tlmst! immense resources.
Mr. Sifton wiil return from Southern
Kootenay by the Arrow Lakes to Revel-
stoke ind then proceed eastward.-
accompanied by Mr. I'osto'k and at
Donald will receive a deputation from
Kast Kootenay on the "ull-woi'Id's routt
to the Yukon."
Mr. Sifton appears tn be in remarkably good health. Neither he nor liii-
companions show any tracec ot KiilTerint,
any bad effects from tlieir long and
toilsome journey. It will lie remembered Mr. Sifton accompanied the new ad-
ministratorof the Yukon, Major Walsh,
a considerable portion uf the way and
saw him safely enter the bounds of hi*
jurisdiction. Tlie route they took to
enter the Yukon was by Lynn Canal,
from which there are sevtiral entrance*
by different passes���the While 1'af-s, the
Chillcoot Pass and the Ciiilkat Pass.
Mr. Sifton entered by tiie White PasF'
from Skagwny, which comes out nn Lake
Bennet. It is along this pass that the
British Yukon Company contemplate
building its railway. Mr. Siffun relumed by Lake Lindermaiin through the
Chillcoot Pass, arriving at Dyea nn tlie
Lynn Canal, lie had .bus an opportunity of personally inspecting two of tht
passes and forming his own conclusion*
as to the dangers of travel. While In
sent some person along tlie Dalton trail
by the Chilkat Pass to examine and report upon it. The condition of the traih
do not appear to lie exaggerated. The)
are soft and lairy, both man and beast
frequently getting bogged, even Majoi
Walsh did not escape from landing u\
to bis waist in an exceedingly soft aim
moist place on the trail.
Tho party was accompanied by a detach mont of the mounted police audi.
band of six Indians from the Kast ti
manage the canoes. The Indians wen
helpless on the trail and of little or m
service in assisting thu party lo get
through the pass, but thoy were al burnt
on the lake;- and proved to he excellent
bontllIGn, The Minister nf tho Iuterioi
spoke in high praise of the mounted
police, and particularly of a corporal
who formed one of tho detachment, ir,
the manner they worked and handlei
the pack animals when getting along tin
trails.
The Corporal was most useful in getting out any of the horses which get lairei.
or bogged. He never hesitated in jumping into the slough of despond, even \i\
to his middle, placing his arms underneath and hitching tho animal out. Tlie
Indians were lost iu admiration at hi.'
prowess. It is not to bu woudered at
that the trails are in a had conditio:
going out by the considering the excessive travel that hut
pasted over them. There wore man}
bad places and no scarcity of dead
horses which had fallen by the way.

EAST KOOTENAY.
: Its Qroftt Resources which will  bo
Opened up by the Crow's Nost
! Paea Railway.
j    East Kootenay in a wonderfully rich
i country now on the eve of development
' and expansion. The great wealth of this
i i'egion has lieen known for years, and in
the early days of placer mining it almost
rivalled Caribou iu itn yield of millions,
but the lack of means of communication
and tlie heavy cost of transportation of
supplies and machinery, combined with
the rich discoveries in other parts of thii
the  Province which were more easy of
access, naturally retarded mining operations seriously and prevented the work
of development reaching those immense
proportions which, under more favoruljto
conditions, would have been attained.
The early completion of the Crow's Nest
Pass Railway, now under rapid construction by tho Canadian Pacific Railway
Company, will remove these impeding
obstacles, and   its  building  is giving a
marvellous impulse to the development
of its boundless rcsourcOB.   By this road
easy access will be gained to this bither-
I to almost sealed region, and a new mining empire���second to none in all thut
j makes wealth���will  be opened  to the
world.     The magnitude of the latent
; riches (if this vast tract can now scarcely
J be estimated, nor will the full extent r.f
Its mineral deposits be known for some
I years, for although tbe work of prospec-
i ting has been vigorously prosecuted with
I most gratifying results there is still a
j large area to be explored,   Thoexisteneo
of immense bodies of ore has already
i been established, but-how wido their dic--
f tributiou  IS can only be determined by
j actual  search.     Prospectors  find here
i magnificent opportunities for discovery
and practical mining men and capitalists
an  unsurpassed  field  for  investment.
Mining operations are being carried on
successfully notwithstanding the disadvantages under  which  Kast Kootenay
j has hitherto labored, in tho long stretch
| of country between (iolden on tiiL* north
and  Moyie Lake on the sooth; and the
silver-leud mines of the North Star and
Sullivan groups, the extensive hydraulic
ivorks on Wild Horse Creek, tbe placer
mines  on   Weaver,   Perry  and   other
streams, the St, Eugene group on Moylo
Lake and the Dibble group towards tlio
Hull Kiver are merely a few successful
camps where there are opportunities for
the development of many other equally
rich propositions.    Besides gold, copper
and silver-lead, Kast Kootonay possesses
what is believed to be the greatest coal
deposit  in thu world���seams overlying
each other fur an exposed depth of 182
feet, ami it  is claimed iron ore exists
within short distance.     Witli the proximity  of  these  two  minerals there is
.���very prospect, that great manufacturing
centers  will  arise  in   Kast  Kootenay
whose coal measures will also supply the
coke required for its own smelters an 1
and for those of West Kootenay.

PLACER   MINING.
THE    INVICTA      GOLD     MINING
COMPANY'S1 PROPERTY.
The largest placer mine in operation
in East Kootenuy is tho property of a
llritisli Company���The Invicta Gold
Mining (Placer) Co. I.t'il., Ijmdon, England. Its- property which it is now
working 1*011 Wild Horse Creek ill Kort
Steels-Mining Division, aliout 5 miles'up
Ihe-creek and on its north west side.
This Company have secured about one
mile along the Creek from which much
gravel hail been washed during the hist
thirty years. The company has-tieeu in
operation for some: time and wrought
some placer ground on the opposite side
of and some distance further down the
ereek. Last year it added considerably
to its plant and commenced the installation, under the superintendence of Mr,
.1. W. It. Young, M.E., of a requisite
plant, sluices, etc., for the hydraulicing
of a large bank of gravel, but as there
1144 been a long delay in the transports:*
tion of piping, monitors, etc., but little
washing could' be attempted during that
season, although about 70,000 cubic
yards were moved, which yielded; according to the annual report of this
company, 7 cents per yard. This year
at the commencement oi the season the
bank was- alwut 5,000 feet long, and
washed back ti to 800 feet from tlie creek
by former holders of small claims, and
stood nearly vertical showing several
uniform strata dipping easily towards
the creek. These strata according to the
report of Mr. W. A. Carlylc, Provincial
Mineralogist, may be divided into different classes: 1. The upper stratum of 50
feet to tiO nl top dirt carries no value
2. A etratura or " red-dirt" about 20 to
tie feet thick, and so far has proved to be
most profitable; 3. The bluedirt stratum
35 feet thick in places, is so solid that it
has to be broken up by dynamite beforo
hydraulicing; 4. The alternate layers of
clay and conglomerate of considerable
i lepth, which lie ou the bedrock of highly
tilted chloride slates and produce good
results. A large amount of dirt on tho
bedrock lias now been tested, by two
shafts being sunk last winter for this
purpose.'
The teat shows that tho pay dirt is
profitable. Hut considerable expensive
work will require U) be done. This may
be overtaken next year. The pay dirt
will have to be washed out by driving in
a tunnel from a point down the creek,
and then washing the dirt into eluiees
laid along this working.
There is a considerable number ol
rounded boulders too large for the
aluices that accumulate and as yet no
-derricks have been supplied for tlieir
removal in case the ground now underlying is washed out down to the gutter.
Dump.���A large amount of boulders
collect at the outlet of the sluices, which
are then extended out* towards the
stream as these pile up; the finer dirt
collects more or less i li the st ream, but it is
sluiced out by tlio yearly freshets.
Water.���Is supplied by two ditches on
the north side of the creek, of which ths
" China" ditch, 3% miles long,supplies,
when running full, 1,000 miners' inches
of water, and the " Victoria" ditch, 4>-_
miles loug, 1,500 inches; the former
supplying the water to the monitors in
the pit, under a head of. 250 feet, the
latter at 350 feet. The water usually
begins to rise aliout the middle of May,
with a goad head about June 1st, which
lasts from three to tour months and
then begins to decrease rapidly, so that
effective hydraulicing can-only be done
for about live months in favorable seasons.
l'lant.���From the pressure luxe* at
the ditches two pipe lines, 1,300 feet
apart, consisting of Steele pipe of 1(1 to 10
gauge and 21 to 12 inches in diameter,
lead down into the pit where, when the
water supply is full, one No. 4, one No.
3 and two No. 2 monitors are used.
Water is also used by letting it cut down
the bank by running over the edge.
Sluices.���There are two about 050 feet
loug each, 3 by 3 feet, with a grade of 8
inches to 10 feet. No mercury is used or
undercurrents, as there is claimed to be
no fine gold; 05 per cent, of the yield
being saved iu the upper 100 feet of
boxes.
An electric light plant of 12,000 candle
power is driven by a Pelton wheel, and
serves to light, nil the workings and
permit night working.
Cost of labor.���Pipomcn receive .13.50
per 12 hours whitemen for other labor
is and Chinamen V2.25 per 10 horns.
Such is a brief description of this
placer mine, and of tbo appliances used,
given by the provincial mineralogist.
A visit made to this mine, and seeing
it in working operation, is the moBt
interesting visit that can he made to
any one of the mining industries iu Kast j
Kootenay, particularly in the season j
when there is a full How of water, and
the two hugh monitors arc in complete
woiking order.
The drive thorc is a pleasant one, there
being a good wagon-nmd. The residence
and stables of the engineers arc situated
on the uppor side of the road, while on
the other side are situated the olliecs,
stores, dining hall and accommodation
for the workmen. The engine house for
the electric plaftt is also on this side, for
the work is prosecuted day awl night
while the season lasts by shifts of men,
and tbo whole nf the placer beds where
the men are working at night are as
brilliant as day by means-of the electric
light.
It is only a few yards from the build-
ingfl to the edge of the high bank, where
the meu are working down beneath.
This bank is of considerable depth, and
over it falls a heavy stream of water
with considerable force and velocity, like
a miniature waterfall, washing out the
gravel, white beneath lire operating the
two monitors, resembling with thoir
nozsles and piping gigantic fire hoses,
playing a big rush of. water on the same
gravel, washing it down into the various
sluicing boxes, which catch and retain
the gold.
Explosions are going on, breaking up
the heavy conglomerated clay and gravel

GOLD   MINING   ON   THE
NORTH   SASKATCHEWAN.
More About the Black Sand.
The gold washings nn the North
Saskatchewan river at Edmonton are
among the resources of Northern Alberta
that attract the attention of the
visitor. He seas the solitary miner, or
perhaps two or three together, working
with the hand " grizzly "- a laborious
method of taking the precious dust from
the gravel and black sand. This method
has been in vogue for many years, washing having been done there in the early
sixties, some of tho original miners still
residing at Edmonton. Oue of these,
Mr. James Gibbons, came to Edmonton,
overland from the south, and not over
the prairie either, but up through the
mountains. He spent some time in the
country near Fort Steele, presumably on
the placer, diggings in that district.
When hclirst washed the sands of the
Saskatchewan, as high as $24 had been
mude iu some days, and their average
was |15 to $20 per day. There were some
of the bare of the river known to be good
and these were the, only ones worked.
When the washing got down as low as ���O
to $8 per day Mr. Gibbons left off washing, as it did not pay, owing to the very j
high expenses at that time. In explor-1
ing the river up and down, Mr. Gibbons
and others discovered that it is possible
to get above and below the gold-bearing
reaches of tbe river, some 100 or 125
iniles above and less than that below
Sdmonton covering the territory very
nearly.
Since the days of the best paying work
on the river, successive sets of minors
havo turned the samo bars over and
over, and the jioorcr bars have been
worked also. Each succeeding spring
freshet nnd summer high water have
c-qoscd new surfaces or made new
deposits of black sand,' which have
renewed tho possibility of making at
least wages. Many a poor man has made
enough to tide him over, and not a few
have made some money and are even yet
doing so with the hand grizzly.
During the last two ur three years a
revolution in the method of washing in
the Saskatchewan has been instituted.
The pioneer was practically Hon. Judge
Kouleau, of Calgary,.whose dredge was
the lirst of anv proportions put ou the
river. Some smaller dredges with hand
power, but very little bettor than the
grizzley, had been tried before. Tho
commencement has been followed up
witli some half-dozen or mure steam
dredges, somo of them being very complete in their appointments. During the
past season several Omaha gentleman
representing different companies have
bad dredges built and various styles of
maolilnory have been put in, some eVen
having a small dynamo und electric
plant. What results these have
made arc known only to the proprietors,
but It is the general opinion  that the
investments have not yet paid very well
on these more expensive machines.
Dr. Braithwaito, of Gdmouton, has a
dredge working on a bar at Uig Island,
some fifteen miles above the town. It is
a steam dredge worked by three men
and two boys, and has been giving very
satisfactory returns since low water.
The unprecedented high water during
the past summer prevented work for a
long time, and possibly prevented paying return.*'.
.ludge Rouleau's location is sonic 75
miles up the river from Edmonton.
This Hummer a grant of 30 miles was
made to Seigneur Drolet, an eastern
gentleman. His grant is what is known
as a subaqueous claim, taking iu thut
part of the bed of (he river comprised
between points taken at two feet below-
low wa.er mark. This leaves shore and
bar claims previously held by others not
interfered with. At least, that is the
proposition; but some of the others
interested did not agree. The amount
of capital invested is proof of what opinion of the richness of the sand is, in the
minds of experts. The gold is all what
is known as flour und float gold, being
very fine, no course gold having been
found. The form in which it occurs
makes it very difficult to save and it is
thought that even the dredges wash over
quite a percentage. The method of
saving has hitherto been by the huick-
silver amalgam process. Each of the
American firms is supposed to have a
special process of their own, whicli, if
known, is probably the cyanide process.
One gentleman has established himself
in the business of buying the Wrick sand
either before or after tho quicksilve
has been used on it. The gold washed
from the Saskatchewan yearly is aliout
���50,000. The origin or source of the gold
deposits is a question for scientists. It
is generally accepted that it bus not been
brought from the mountains by the
river. All the gravels which underlie
the country show colors when washed,
even miles away from the river.���Tho
Winnipeg Commercial.
Tiifi Minisr has much pleasure in
reproducing this article owing to the
interest that this black Band, is- creating
among mining and scientific experts in
various centres, both in Canada and the
United States. There is no doubt ns to
the richness of the sand through the
existence of the golden particles in it,
but the gold is of such a fine quality
that there is great difficulty in extracting it in big paying quantities by tho
ordinary means hitherto in vogue. The
old process of roasting and smelting lias
not been a gceat success. The agency of
chemistry has now been applied for
some time in extracting gold from reef
which would have hitherto been considered worthless, as tho ordinary means
of extraction would not have paid. This
agency is liow-heing-appliedto the black
sand, but it is not much more than in an
experimental stage, For worthless reef,
or what would have been considered
worthless reef but for this discovery, the
two chemical agencies that have been
used for extracting the gold arc the
chlorination and cyanide processes, The
peculiarity is that both processes are not
equally -successful, as one process may
be a comparative success, whereas the
other if tried might be a comparative
failure. The adaptability and sucress of
the process all' depends upon circumstances, which are now well ascertained
so far us reef is concerned. The black
sand may only yield its full measure of
wealth to some other chemical process
that hafl not yet been made known or
ascertained.
The Mixkii ifl watching these experiments with somo interest, as there is
similar sand in some of our streams and
rivers in East Kootonny. Tlie source of
thiB Blind is from quartz ledges in the
mountains washed down by erosion and
carried considerable distances in the
water beforo being finally deposited
where it is found. The sources of the
Saskatchewan arc in tlie Itocky mountains, and right opposite, on the other
side of the mountains are the sources of
streams flowing in East Kootenay���notably, the Blaeberry, whicli holds similar
deposits of black sand, all obtained from
a common origin: from the quartz reefs
that exist there.
