camp becoming known and demonstrated. Though staked by George
Hardie, it is now being* worked by
D. A. McDougald and P. M. Tingling
of t is town. The ledge is pronounced by all who have seen it as a pure
fissure vein. It runs from east to
west and dips "at an angle of 45 degrees. < The vein proper is nine feet
wide on .the surface, three feet being
in white quartz, the remaining six in
a torniafcion similar to that in the Silver King and Le Roi mines, at Toad
Mountain and Trail creek. - The first
assays showed gold more abundantly
in the white quartz,- while the other,
peacock' in Character, carries gold,
silver and copper. A few shots were
put in the face this week and a shaft
sunk about 10 feet. This has proven
tlie continuity and certainty of the
fissure Yt-iu and it also demonstrates,
as at Trail creek, that the ore gets
richer as they descend. At the 10-

Repairing Damages.
G, 0. Pitts, representing a syndicate of Portland capitalists, who went
into, the Cariboo creek placer fields a
few days ago and became enthused
over tlie indications, has determined
to bring his enthusiasm to a practical
test. Pie has secured the Vader
claim and engaged men to sink a.
shaft to bedrock. Supplies have been
ordered and good wages will be given
the men. Pitts, who is a mining
man of experience, believes that the
creek is destined to prove one of the
richest placer and mineral camps yet
discovered. He has telegraphed to
H. A. Anderson, of Spokane, another
expert, to come in at once and help
develope the property.
"Another G-ood Strike.     .    .
During the past two weeks D. A.
McDougald has had a couple of men
prospecting on the hills to the foot of
the lake and to the head of Mineral
creek. Towards'the end of the week
they4 returned bringing with them
sonic fine samples of white quartz,
taken from a ledge located by them
on this side of the big hogback and
in sight of the town. The lead is 10
feet wide and well defined. Mineral
is prominent throughout the samples
shown, but the assayer's returns have
not yet * been received, though it is
believed to carry gold in paying
quantities. If so" it will prove abo ;
nanza, as there is an abundance of
ledge matter. The claim has been
called the Nakusp.
This Week's Export Shows  a Fall-
in_r Off in Quantity.
This week's shipment of ore to the
outside smelters, via this town, show
a decided decrease against thc re •
cords of that "previous. This is due
to the Kootenai having* been temporarily laid off awaiting a greater inrush of ore from Silverton. The str.
W. Hunter, on Slocan lake, has been
engaged towing lumber, hence the
scarcity. Something like 175 tons
have come in, but only -15 tons of this
has gone out, the Lytton taking up a
load ■ on Monday. Next week tiie
Kootenai is expected to again be running. During the ".veek thc Ee Roi,
on Trail creek, shipped 37 tons to
Everett, and tlie Josie 30 tons to Tacoma. The Silver King, on Toad
mountain, sent 1-14 tons to Denver,
while the Surprise, in the Slocan,
shipped out 22 Ions to Great Falls by
wav of Kaslo and J Conner's Ferry.

^ Roseberry was en fete Monday, in
honor of the marriage Of J. T. Nault,
of that burg and Nakusp, to Miss E.
McKeown, of Bonanza City, sister of
Mrs. J. Madden. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. Father Pevtavin,
O. M. I., of Nelson; Ulric Naul j;, brother
of the groom, and -Mrs. J. Madden
supporting the worthy couple. The
principals are well known in the district and deservedly popular. Both
hail from the province of Que bee,- the
former from Ste, Anne de la Parade
and the latter from Stonehani.    Mr.
The value is reckoned on the basis of

The Goat Canyon'-Placer- Mining
Co., whose  work's on  Cariboo creek i
were almost destroyed by the- heavy]
rains of a week ago, have  repaired
of many handsome presents, and they
received quite an" ovation all along
the line as they were coming in on
the train Monday eve. They took
passage on the Lytton for Nelson on
Tuesday, where they will spend some
time. Returning they will fake up
their residence at Roseberry, at which
place Mr.NauP has extensive business interests. The Ledge .joins
with its readers in wishing the gallant couple a prosperous and happy
married life.
Provincial Officer Fauquier arrived
down from Revelstoke on. Tuesday
with Albert Littlejohn in ..charge, who
had been arrested ajt; that poin7 on receipt of 'a telegram* from  D. Dunn.
Last week Littlejohn paid, a visit to
Dan^s place on Broadway, in the hitter's'absence, and appropriated to iiis
o vn. use the contents of a .jewel cas-
ket valued at about #00 ).    'When the
robbery became known, suspicion a t
once .'fell on Littlejolin, and when  he
skipped out on Monday's boat the telegram -for his appi'ehe'nsiotr fol lowed.
When "arrested   tiie ... jewelery was
found on  him.    His  trial took place
yesterday before E. Mohun and F.W.
Jordan,  J.P.'s,   who committed the
prisoner to a higher court to be held
at Nelson.
A branch of the Bank of 3\Iontreii 1
is likely to lie opened at NewDenver.
Snow is falling rapidly in the hills
in the Cariboo creek district, interfering greatly with prospecting. There
will be a rush into the country next
spring, if one may jiidge .from the
talk of men during the week.
The Tottenham Company, on Cariboo creek, has a shaft down 19 feet
and are expecting to see bedrock this
week. Joseph Dereham, the manager, was in town last week, and says
he called this claim after his native
town in Ontario.

THURSDAY,  OCT.   4,   1894
This is the opening number of our
second year.    Most of papers, as they
grow older, increase in  size and advertisements.    This journal reverses
the order of things and today it is
only half of its former size, but the
quality of the paper is much better
than formerly and the information
given   as  abundant   as  ever.    We
• have passed through a year of stirring incidents.    Snow, flood, wind and
fire have caused us  to witness many
brilliant and  thrilling tableaux, too
large for stage indoors.    We have
had  a prosperous year,   scarcely a
month passing by that some  honest
member of thc human family did not
call ia and pay us a   subscription.
We have kept out of jail and no one
has sued us for injuring his feelings.
Peacefulness  has -reigned supreme,
and our private cemetery still sighs
for a tenant.    We have   found the
people square—that is, most of tii^m
—and we, have the proud distinction;
of saying that no other town in Canada better supported a paper, considering its size—the town, we mean—
than  have  the  citizens^bf^^Takusp.
During our stay in  the town no serious calamity has occurred, to mar its
quiet progress.    It   has   not  moved
with the celerity that some towns do,
but no one has died of starvation, and
the musical jingle ofthe silver dollar
is still  heard  in its business places.
We anticipate a great future for Nakusp, and for that reason we ring up
the curtain on the second act and announce to our small  but select audience that we will stay witli tlie proposition   and   Nakusp   until   Hades
freezes over and we can walk on the
ice.   '■" ■';■'••..•■ -      '•■■'.    v ;
The paystreak on The Ledge has
petered out and we expect to do a
great amount of dead work before
wo strike it again. Wo will keep at
it .while the bacon and beans last, and
when they are all gone Nakusp will
be ancient history, and we will be
busted, by gosh ! Refined and generous reader, if you? desire to. have
the development work ., prosecuted
with vigor upon.-tlie only Ledge in
Nakusp, dig up two dollars and we
will givv you the news for one year
and guarantee you a liberal obituary

To those of our readers who have

Wonder if Hon. Wilfred Laurier
will continue to use his little wooden
musket to get him into power at Ottawa ? He must needs use stronger
and purer .ammunition to make a
lasting impression on the electorate
than that employed on his recent gunning expedition for popularity in this
province if he does. Why, enthusiasm can be raised up over anything
—a Brown speech, for instance—and
it is so cheap.
The darling idol of the Victoria
people is" the British Pacific, or Canada Western, Railway scheme, and
they as devoutly worship it as any
South Sea islander his block of wood.
Periodically the promoters give a
spasmodic kick, merely to keep up
n. .'semblance of existence. The most
recent effort appeared last week, in
the shape,of a four-page' supplement
to; the Colonist, setting forth the aims;
objects and ad vantages of the undertaking. New blood is said to haye-
become interested hi the charter-
Baron Hirseh: and ;the Rothschilds,
This scheme will become one of the
burning questions of .the day ere
nniny moons have past.
As we mentioned • two weeks ago,
the Government has decided upon
calling an autumn session of the Legislature, and a proclamation to this
effect appeared.in last week's Gazette.
The date set for the opening is Mon
day, Nov. 11th, and the reason: "the
dispatch of business." This may be
taken to. mean,.in brief, an empty'
treasury. Matters of vital interest
will come before- our legislators,
chief]y in regard to public works. In
all probability the ^session will last
until Christmas, affording ample time
for the new members to prepare and
deliver impressiveand elegant maiden speeches. Perhaps none will
shine more than the esteemed member for tlie south riding, J. Fred
Hume.    If not, then the svstemaDic

Surprise "was expressed at the apparent richness ofthe ore, Mr. Finph 'expressing' liimseJ/ as greatly pleased

as to the 'location of the discoveries,
their size and extent, me^ns'ofcom-

In a Predicament;
-7 The Spokalieir'Tri
day last contained the following:
Yesterday tlie .police department l^-
ceiveii a sweet-scented dispatch/vvMch
bore the signature of N.■■ Fitzstubbs,
stipendiary magistrate, located 7 at
New d Den yer, B. -C. The telegram
read:, "John jt^earns,! Arnericah, this
morn ing sent to Spokane via Nelson
& Fort Sheppardi Railway, Physical
wreck-';- -loss of memory-;, requires care."
Shortly after 8 o'clock last night .the
man mentioned in. tbe telegram .was
brought to the police headquarters.
He was a tall, bony fellow, about 55
years old. He has a wild stare in his
eye arid told an ircoherent, story. He
is a physical wreck, and while not,
craz}'his mind is1 a perfect blank.
He is not sick enough to. go to the
hospital, not crazy ^enough to go-?to
Medical Jake, the poor fai;m yrill not
adopt him, he has a brother and^is-
ter some where in *the Sound country,-
and he is a pauper.; Conflict of ,'#u-
.thority also exists as to the right of
the British magistrate to send baclj: to
America a helpless, man, who must
live at public expense-—Kearns is the
man who was picked up, in a famjsh--
ed condition, by the Lytton, on-the
lower Columbia, some time since.

v Attracting Outside At ten tion.
Outside attention is beinir attracted
to the mineral strikes on Cariboo and
Mineral creeks. Dr. Hendryx, of
Pilot Bay fame, and A. Murphy, part
ownerhi the Black l?rince mine in tlie
Lardeau, have both, been inquiring
after the Ora Grande claim, in which
A. Taisior,1 C. Vader, N. Demars and
B. C. Rodd ai'e .interested. The
claim is located on vs'Imt is believed
to be a coiitinuatipn of:the- Golden
Eagle lead, showing; three feet of
mineral between walls. There are
20 inches of peacock ore, the balance
on either side being white quartz.
An assay on this showed $70 in gold,
besides 'silver and copper, and the
ore improves with, depth. A test
sample of 30 pounds was sent to Dr.
Hendryx at Nelson on Eriday.

Numerous complaints -. have been
made during the past week of petty
thefts of various articles in different
parts of the town by some liglit-fin-
gered gentry. The thieves have
confined themselves 'principally-''-'to
household appendages and lumber,
. but in one instance^ thej^ have waxed
bolder and went so' far as to remove
a double window fioni a residence.
The building in question is that built
by A. H. B. Cochrane, to the rear of
the Prospect House. The thieves
took a pane of .glass out of owe window by removing the putty, elevated the sash, and getting inside opened the back door. ;. Then-.going into'
a side room they pried off tlie frame
and took out the entire double sash
and packed it off. In addition to this
another window was broken and the
premises otherwise ruthlessly be-
spoiled. This is a shame and such
petty thievery should be promptly
checked, ft is practically unsafe to
leave anything lying round loose.
Trespassers on the"' Cochrane property
will be vigorously prosecuted in the
