Communication Re-established.
Great satisfaction was expressed by
one   and   all yesterday when it was
learned that communication with the
■outside world by way of Revelstoke.
was .once   more established.      The
steamed Lytton. arrived in port from
the head of the lake yesterday morn
ing, bringing several head of cattle,
several tons   of flour, and  three or
four weeks'  delayed  mail.   It was  ~~"&    "^ ---^0.

The first concert ever given in Nakusp came off in t^e new schoolhouse
last Thursday evening  and   was  a
decided  success   m   every  respect.
The talent, was entirely local and
the programme presented was of exceptional merit  and   taste,    Indeed
niauy places of much larger pretensions  than  this  young scity would
have felt proud could they have gotten ujp; an equally as good intellectual
and musical treat.    D. Ac.   McDougald acted as chairman and promptly
at 7:30 o'clock opened the enterfeaiii-
ment by a few happy remarks and
then proceeded to call   off the   programme thus:

and Mr. Duffy.

their long-expected goods come in.
The fare for passengers on the, sled
road will be $1.
Mining at Ainsworth.
The old   reliable   camp   of
worth is eoming up in ; good  shape.
A shipment  from,  the   Number One
was made to Tacoma recently.  The}1,
are now making an upraise and are
constantly   taking  out   ore.   T.   J.
Johnson came in a few days ago, and
the supposition is that he is figuring
oh the big tunnel to tap. the Mamie,
Lady of the Lake and   other mines.
G. B Wright has six   men   at work.
He has four feet of ore in the incline,
and will run: a tunnel to tap the vein
from below.    The   Highland   has a
thousand tons of ore  on the dumps
and a wagon road is to be constructed
to the foot of the hill, half a mile from
the mine.    A. D. Wheeler and Thos.
McGovem intend running a 300-foot
tunnel on the Little Phil  and Black
Diamond.    The   Kootenay Development Company is going to run a 100-
foot tunnel on   their  property.   The
Jeanette has two   feet ore   and   the
vein improves with development.

The audience testified their approval of the various numbers by according numerous encores, but where
all the performers did so well it would
not be policy to particularize.
The success of the entertainment
was largely due to the energetic labors of the committee, but more particularly Messrs. Conway and Muir-
head, who had charge of the decora- J
tions.    Close on to $50 was realized
by the sale of tickets, which will be
applied towards wiping out the debt
on the school, leaving $100 still to be
raised. Another concert will be given
on the 28th for the same purpose.
Last Thursday being St. Andrew's
day—an event dear to the hearts of
all   Scotchmen—D.   A.   McDougald
celebrated the event by  a  private
supper at his well known hostelry,
the Leland House.    Covers were laid
for 15 guests and these embraced a
member  of as many- clans.     The
spread was a bounteous one but chief
attention was paid the turkey and
cranberry sauce.    At the head of the
table sat W. C. Muirhead and at the
foot T. Mowbray.    Full justice having been paid the tempting viands,
the table was cleared and then followed an even better treat in the way
of speeches,  songs   and   recitations,
causing the warm blood of the canny
Celts to course more quickly through
their, veins.     Following   were  the
toasts   honored:—'. 'Her  Majesty the
Queen," "Our. Patron Saint and the
Day   we  Celebrate," *. 'Our  Worthy
Governor-General   Lord Aberdeen,"
"The Lieutenant-Governor and.Provincial Government,"   "Our Absent
Friends,"   ' 'Our  Host and Hostess."
The gathering broke up in the early
hours of morn, one.vaud: all wishing. '
that St. Andrew's (lay would come
oftener, even were it but to get more
turkey.

bureau of mines, has but,recently returned to Toronto from a visit; to tlie
minim*..region north of Lake Huron.

d;,iLbts.,i>n the 'subject. Gareisl per'u-'
sal of whati he vayfl'about the Ophlimine will develope the tact that it is
one of, :if not tlie richest" of gold mines
in the world; and that, although it
has only been , worked for one year,
its proprietors have already piled up
on their dump '.sufficient ore to aggregate in value over *pl, 000,000. Working on the poorest grade of ore, they
have an output of $15,000 worth, of
gold per week, therefore it is difficult
to determine what the ore already
mined will yield when the mill is
started on the rich sulphurets! ?..;'* Mr.-
Blue says the rock is yellow with
gold, arid in: ..ever}' directien there is
a showing ofthe mineral.     : :
The location of the Creighton Gold
Mining Company is about seven m lies
southeast from Larchwood station.
It was opened up nearly, a year ago.
The outcrop of the vein is quite extensive, and appears to be an overflow. Besides this there is another
large overflow of quartz, showing
quite 100 feet in width. A shaft has
been put down 160 feet, and the walls
are easily defined. They have gone
down on the foot wall and have only
reached the hanging wall in one
place, where they find the vein is 17
feet wide.
The company has built a mill and
equipped it with an improved Crawford mill. The mill was started three
weeks ago and is doing good work;
The.company is fully organized and
is composed of the best men of Ottawa.
•Mr. Burritt, registrar of Carleton
county and president ofthe company,
is an old Australian miner. It:is expected that in the near future this
locality will be heard from as a good
gold mining section.
The   Ophir   mine is in Galbraith
township, in the valley of the Thes-
salon river, 18 miles north-east of the
old village of  Bruce   Mines.    It is
reached by a colonization road built
■a few years ago  past the property.
The vein is immense.   Shafts sunk
upon it show that the ore bodies come
together at a depth of about 100 feet.
The fissure at the base has a width of
about three and one-half feet; and
narrows at the top to about 18 inches.
Where the chimney joins it, it has a
width of nine feet and is tilled to the
surface with well mineralized quartz.
The ore at the point of contact is exceedingly rich the face of the vein
being yellow -with gold. "Four adits
' ha ve been driven at different;levels,
and the formation has-been' carefullv
explored, showing it to consist of
three fyhls. .The measure across> the
vein is 53 feet. ..The lowest fold carries tho richest "ore: .the others are
comparatively lean and are separated,
from -each other by bands of coal
black slate. - ,
All the developement work has
been done inside of a year under the
maiiagement of -. Col, W. R. Wallace,
a cousin of Gen.*,Lew Wallace. A
mill has. been erected this v ear for
treating the ore. Work on it commenced in J uly and the first run was
made on the 6th of last month;- It is
a Fraser & Chalmers mill of 20 stamps
and eight line vanners, and when
un at its my capacity can crush and
treat 50 tons per day of 21 hours.
They began to crush ore with the
batteries on October 14, selecting the
leanest ore lor the first trial, as they
wanted to prove the mill before using
the rich. ore. The plates were cleaned up every day, and the following
Friday evening Col. Wallace weighed the product of the first week's work
from the plates. They weighed about
28 .pounds avprdupois, of which about
8 pounds would be quicksilver. The
precious metal is an alloy of gold and
silver in the proportion of £16 ofthe
former to |3 of the latter icr ounce.
This would give a little over $5,000
as the gold output for the first Aveek.
Without touching the amalgam in the
batteries or in the vanners all. the
larger particles of gold will be found
in the batteries and the concentrates
as now milled will yield about i.850
per ton. It is not unlikely, therefore,
that the first week's milling;'' say 280
tonSj will yield not less than $15,000.
A quantity of two and one-half tons of
average ore from this mine milled at
the Houghton, Michigan, school of
mines, yielded $60 per ton.      .    .
There is a large mass of good ore in
sight, calculated at 150,000 tons, and-
although no one can ..say. positively
what the yield will be,until it has
gone through the mill, there is hardly
a shadow of doubt that ih©' property
will prove to be rich and productive.
There are also several other discoveries in the distriet, some of which
are worth development.

SILVER FOR CANADA.
H. G-iegerich of Kaslo has Something
to Say Thereon.
H. Giegerich, the well known merchant of Kaslo and Ainsworth, was in
Spokane last week and spoke his
mind as follows to one of the city
scribes:—    --—■'■
liA few days ago I met a gentleman
who is supposed to be in close alliance
with the powers of the Government.
His home is at Toronto. He said the
people of Eastern Canada were just
beginning to realize the importance
of the western provinces, special attention having been directed to British
Columbia this season because of the
remarkable increase in ore shipments.
As a result of this the Government is
beginning to wonder if something
cannot be done to foster the new-
western mining interests.
"The new proposal, which is to be
agitated this /winter, calls for the establishment of a home mint and may
require the erection of a smelter
somewhere within the province. It
is proposed to call in the small paper
currency—the $1, $2 and $4 notes—
and issue silver, dollars in place of
them. This would place about £6, -
000,000 in silver in circulation in
Canada, in addition to the subsidiary
coins now in use. It is probable* too,
measures would be devised to insure
the use of the home product in preference to foreign sliver.
'^Naturally the people of our part
of the country will be enthusiastically
in favor of the new plan.' But the
people of Eastern Canada have not
thought much about it, for as they
use but very little silver, the discussion in the United States was of but
scant interest to them. Now it is
probable that considerable time will"
be required to make them familiar
with the subject, but we hope for action favorable to silver before many
months."

THURSDAY,  DECEMBER   7, 1893.
SLOGAN MINERAL EXHIBIT.
From present appearances it would
seem that the \yast mineral bodies of
untold wealth within' the confines of
thej'npw' celebrated Slocan   district
will ■ receive ample advertising* and
display at the iiidwinter^'irair, to, be
opened shortly at San Francisco. The
Spokane Board of Trade has donated
the sum of |50Q and appointed an
agent for gathering together a comprehensive collection . of the ores from
this district in which so much of their
capital is interested.    The one great
objection to this arrangement, in our-
estimation, is that large numbers of
sightseers    beholding    the"   exhibit
labeled <'Spokane Exhibit  of Ores,"
will not realize the fact that the best
ores shown by the Spokane people
will be  from the Slocan district—a
country separate,   distinct   and   by
long odds far superior to anything to
be-found in the neighboring Republic.
We believe the Local Government
purpose making a display of our mineral wealth at'the Fair, and if so they
should receive every support and encouragement from the mine owners.
But let the exhibit be of such magnitude and  variety that good results
may accrue therefrom, as apparently
was not the case with the showing
made at the Columbian Exposition at
Chicago.
■Mr. George Hughes, one of the most
enterprising men in the district, has
guaranteed free transportation of all
samples from the various mines to his
ore-house.at Kaslo, from whence thev
can be forwarded to the Fair. It is
to the best interests of the country
that its own people should make
known to the world its great mineral
resources, and the Midwinter Fair is
•an opportunity that should:' be made
tho moBt of, lor many thousands of
people will be gathered there from
all- parts of the globe,

JL*0 Slocan Dry Ores.
The Slocan dry ore belt will be
more popular than the galena properties next year unless E. P. Syndam
is mistake^.' Mr. Snyda.ni is owner
ofthe Lucky  Lode and one of the
owners of the Congo, and has been
spending the entire summer in that
locality. "Considerable' work has
been done this year, and with good
results," he said last evening. "There
are fourteen good dry ore claims on
one hill, and some of them are already
shipping ore. What we need is a
concentrator. Some San : Francisco
men have been figuring on ereeiing
one next spring,   and it now seems
probable they will.
"The plan is to give the concentra"
tor a convenlent „ location and run
branch tramways to the different
claims. If this is doner there will. be
no question about the progress of the
mines next year. Few people realize how rich our ore is. A short time
ago Col. Russell selected 18 pounds
of ore, sampled it carefully and took
out six ounces for a m ill test. It
yielded one ounce of silver. All we
want is to free our rich rock from the
barren quartzbelbre shipment."

Jennings, where it joins the Great
Northern. At first it was proposed to
run southeast to Kalispel, but it is understood that that plan has been
abandoned. ,
This road will cross a fine farming
country. The Tobacco piains contain
some bf the best agricultural land in
Montana, rich bottom ground easily
cleared and requiring little drainage.
At present there are only a few settlers on the plains, but as soon as the
railroad is built there will be a great
rush for the land.

The Great Northern and Canadian
Pacific After the Trade.
This has been a pretty good year
for railroad building in British Columbia, but next year promises to be
still better. There is a general beliei
that the Great Northern' Railway
company is getting ready to enter the
field. The people of ■'■Kaslo' feel certain that the new road to Three Forks
is really ont of President Hill's: enterprises, and the people who live east
of the Upper Kootenay are equally
certain that another'. 3'ranch of the
American line will pass through-their
country next year.
John White, a recent arrival from
Fort Steele, states that there'is no lack
of railroad men in the country. The
Canadian Pacific surveying party has
been working all summer selecting
the new route west of Crow's Nest pass.
Their line crosses the Kootenay a few
miles south of the jfort and follows
down the Moyea   valley, Crossing the      will make two trips daily Sunday exeluded?be-

busy surveying all summer.    They w. c. McKinnon, Sec'y.
have been laying out a line for a railroad fix)in the coal fields near Crow's
Nest pass to the Great Northern raih
way. These fields hare never been
developed, but it is claimed that they
contain large veins of a good quality
of coal.
Nominally the road is to be built
by the British Columbia Southern
Railway Company. In reality it is
understood to be a Great Northern
