man Kirkpatrick, who left so mysteriously nt night and who joined
Robert Slefert, of Libby Creek, Montana, on the Kootenay river, and then
suddenly disappeared atTobncco Plains
and who did not appear at Jennings

parties aro will, it is hoped, shortly be
known. When Siefert reached Jennings, on being asked about Kirkpat-
riok, he stated that he had left him
drunk ut Fort Stoele. This, of course,
was false, as Kirkpatrick was seen by
a man named Flowers, who passed
him in tho boat with Siefert.

IIEGIOXS TEEMING WITH WEALTH
PRAISED BY OUTSIDERS.
(From the Vancouver World.)
Il is said that an estimate of a
country's or u city's worth can sometimes he judged beslj and to the greatest advantage by reports circulated
regarding it by outsiders. If this is
true, then the following from the
Seattle Telegraph speaks well for the
mining regions of llritish Columbia
Alt hough there has heen comparatively little work accomplished for the
past six mouths in the way of silver
mining, yet a prospector from the
Slocan district in British Columbia re-
.noi'i uisideriibla  activity   In   that

one span would be sufficient, Some
cribbing \vould be necessary along the*
steep hillsides and this would also be
put in this winter. Besides the above,
Mr. Munn said that they would, as
soon us sufficient progress was made
with the clearing, proceed with the
rock work along the whole line. It
was impossible until the staff of engineers at work beyond Bear lake had
got through with their work of cross-
t-ectioning, which would probably take
three weeks, to tell how much rock
work would have to bo bundled, but
thero would be a good deal, This
work would be let by contract, and it
could bo carried on fully us well perhaps in winter us in summer.

Washington state have large holdings
iu   Ins district.     Some of them were
among the prospectors, who entered the
district in the fall of 1891, and first
discovered mineral and located claims.
Since  then  many   m'nes   have   been
found, considerable  development   bus
been   done  and    some  ore  shipped.
Numerous  assays have    been    made
ol the ore and all.chemists and assay-
ers have pronounced it a high grade,
ranging fro . 3150 to more than 91,000
and averaging .jti.-iO to the ton.    Some
of the best mines are held by Seattle-
ites among them   being Lucky Jim,

Hon. Col. Baker, Minister of Mine:
und Education, who has returned from
a trip of inspection to Alberni, says
tlinl when the Maude arrived tliere
with Mr. McGillivruy and his mou and
supplies the weather was very bad the
rain coming down in torrents. There
were no trained puck horses, and no
t  who understood packing, and tho
trail  lo tho .nines, about 21 miles o!T,
.-.'.-   in poor  condition,  so that the
i iv ol transportation was more difficult than might  have been expected.
It took two days to get tho  otitlit up,
and many of the horses became mired
so that the packs had  to be carried on
the men's Lucks.   Arrived ut the mines
all   expressed   themselves  as  highly
satisfied  with the outlook, and it appeared that  tliere would be no trcuble
iu tunneling.     Mr. McGillivruy, who
is uu experienced miner, formed a very
high opinion of the ore from what he
saw iu the vein iu  the tunnel.     The
work is now going on briskly and no
further  difficulty  is  expected.     Mr.
Saunders has entered  into a contract
for sending   iurther   stores  up to the
mines.    When Col. Baker was returning his horse played  out, aiid he had
to u.;lk 18 miles, leading the animal.
As there is two and a half feet of snow
on the trail iu the neighborhood of the
mine, the experience was not a pleasant
one. - Vancouver World.

Telegraph reporter at the Rainier that
the new means of railroad transportation would make it possible to work
the mines at a profit, even though the

this effect.   The Kaslo-Slocan railway'

A   DAY   OK   THANKhOIVlNU.
I'liursdny of Ibis week was Thanksgiving Day - a day set apart for us to
raise our hearts in thanksgiving to Ihe
creator for the good vouchsafe 1 to us,
Let us cast a glance over till conditions surrounding us uud compare
them with our own.
It is true that onr mining districts
have felt the effects of lo.v silver, and
the uncertainty which has made silver
properties a drug on the market has
made its effects felt here. But even
with it nil, have wo uo reason to be
thankful when wj 'ook across the line
mid see thitistiiids nf men thrown on
the public charity for tbo barest neces-
surys of life?
All our other interests have heen in
a prosperous condition and our town
uud whole district have felt none of
the hard times which prevail elsewhere.
Then to widen our horizon and take

were last year. In the Dnuiiiioi at
large this year has beou one to make
our breasts swell with prido. In

which demoralized our neighbors
affected us, still it but showed the
stability of our commercial institutions. AVhiln in 4) States and Territories the total numberoE bank fuilor's
waso 10 (with 12 of th it number since
resumed), only one ol our banks had to
succumb.
