BIGf BEND GOLT? OUTPUT.
Estimate of' the Various Creeks for
tlie Past Season.
E. P. Dunn came down from the
Big Bend on Friday, on' his, way to
spend a few months in the Slocan.
He says the past season has been none
too prosperous among the gold hunt:
ers of the upper country, though considerable work has . been' performed;
Heavy and continued floods'have had
a deterrent effeet, hinderingdevelop-
ment to a large extent, as well as.the
packing of supplies." TheWoe&tioh's
being worked centre principally oh
Uoldstream and, its tributaries;'and of
these notably French and McCullough
creeks; while a few. Chinese are paying attention to the bars on the Columbia. Rumors of-impending bonds
on certain claims havebeen frequent,
but the stake-money, has been conspicuous by its absence.
The greatest loss inflicted upon any
proj ercv was that to the Consolation,
which was badly wrecked by a "sudden flood some months„ago... This,
has all been cleared away, and the
boys are making good headway with
the drifting. The NesteileCo., which
has <x big claim adjoiningthe Fisher,
011 French creek, make little. noisey
a scientific manner, and when they
strike the pav streak proper gold will
fly. About 60 men in all, trappers
and miners, "will winter in the Big
Bend, abundant supplies having been
packed in. Dunn estimates the output for the past season at |23,800 in
gold, divided as follows:   7

be much larger than that given.

reach vmuch higher figures than at
any time since the '60's.
to the Great Falls smelter. Patsy
Clark, one of the owners, savs tliat if
there is a fair margin of profit in it,
the}7' will certainly have a mine, foi"
there is an abundance of this kind of
mineral. The owners are going
ahead with the work and will continue.taking out ahd shipping ore all
winter, principally to Great Falls. ^
Big Clean-up.
News^ has just-- been received from
the manager of the Horsefly Hydraulic mine in Cariboo, of- the results of
the 'recent clean-up after half a
^month's work. The result, though
considered, very -satisfactory, would
:haye" been more, so,- had not the frost
interfered ahd prevented them from
getting .the gold, in-the cuts. As it is
the cleamup of the sluice boxes resulted in some $13,00Q worth of gold,
and as the cuts are tlie richest portion
it may be said without exaggeration,
that as much more gold will be found
therein, and that the total results of
the half month's labors will be at
least-$26,000. .At -last reports the
weather was moderating and the
manager hoped to get some ot the
gold out of the cuts before finally
closing down for the winter. Taking
$26,000 as the -result of tlalf a month's
work, it would, "mean $50,000 for the
month.. jrhe.jcompai^r. r in. the spring,
intend'7putting "in'aar'efeclritrTiirht
■plant>and"w©rk"twb'shifts,-- so that the
output will; be correspondingly increased.

Final Inspection.
ORE SHIPMENTS.
Still Another Mine Enters the List
of Exporters.
The shipments of ore this week
have been small, but of interest, inasmuch as another of the many Slc-
can treasure vaults has comnienced
to market its output.    The ore men*
tioned last issu_ as coming from .the
Alpha, 45 tons in all, was forwarded
to Omaha on Thursday, That evening a small consignment from the
Fisher Maiden, 'onc~of the most promising properties in the Silverton,district, and one that bids fair to rival
the leading Slocan producers, was
brought in. It amounted to 38_- tons,
and was consigned to the United
Smelting & Refining Co., at Smelter,
Montana,. to whose works it was forwarded on Sunday. This ore is very
high grade and is expected to lead
the'smelter returns for the district.
The value
at $4,500,
Maiden at £3,850. Now that the
snow has fallen in depth on the mountain trails, preparations arc being
made to rawhide the ore down with
a rush, in order to get a large portion
of it out by the Revelstoke route by
.thc^eiid-of January. .rThe Slocan will
be "a bus}'' camp this season. Following is the local shipping list:

Struck It on the War Eagle.
A fine body of ore was struck in
the tunnel ofthe War Eagle mine, on
Trail creek, a few days ago. The
mine lias been developed with a shaft
80 feet deep and the tunnelcut the
ledge at a depth of 100 feet. The ore
body at that depth is apparently from
eight to 10 feet wide and the surface
showings are from 400 to 500 feet in
length. The ore is copper and iron
pyrites, car. y ng slver a id gold. No
assays have oeen obtained on samples
from the new strike, but a test shipment of 50 tons will be made at once
The following officials gathered at
this place last week and made a trip
over the Nakusp & Slocan Railway,
for the purpose of making a final inspection ere the road be taken over
by the C. P. R.: —R. M. Marpole, sup-
erintendent of the Pacific division of
the C.P.R; H. J.  Cambie, chief engineer; E. M. J. Duchesnay, assistant
chief engineer; G. Desbarets, Dominion Government engineer;  C. Osier,
chief engineer  of the N.& S.R.: J.
Wulffsohn, oftheI.C.&D.Co.; and D.
McGillivray•   The party went i out
Friday to Three Forks,, mihutelv inspecting that end of the line next day.
Everything was found in first-class
condition,  particularly the  trestles,
which were pronounced superior-'to
similar structures on the mainline.
The road bed was  solid   and   wel 1
graded and the depot buildings, etc.,
much  above  the ordinary.   When
the finishing touches  have been put
upon the Three Forks terminals, the
Nakusp & Slocan Railway  will be
classed as an Al mountain road. Mr.
Desbarets expressed his entire approval of the undertaking and  will so
report to the authorities at Ottawa,
making safe the Dominion subsidy.
The profiles,  drawings,   and   other
data is being put into shape ...to be
handed over  to the C.P.R.   Stocktaking will be finished in two weeks,
at the' end of which time it is thought
the I.C.& D. Co.'s employees will vacate their premises   and   scatter to   . O. Marstrand, of Marstrand & Doer-

After the Sol Holden.
A deal is now on for the purchase
of the Sol Holden gold mine, in the
Big7 Bend country, one of tlie most
promising claims in that region. Atkins & Humphrey, who obtained considerable notoriety in the Slocan one
year ago, in connection with the
Middaugh outfit, are negotiating between the interested parties. American capitalists are the purchasers.
The figures are set at §10,100. t.

THURSDAY,   NOV.   29,   1894.
TO COKN-BH'- SILVER.
During tl le. week ! our American
contemporaries have, had their columns more or less filled with matter
pertaining to the organization and
proposed operations of, ah immense
syndicate of smelting companies: The
syndicate announce as their object
the cornering of the silver market of
the world and freeing tlie white,metal
from the uncertainties of bourse soec-
illations. India, Cixiiia and Japan
are the principal ..buyers of silver,and
t!icy purchase second hand through
England. The American mint is no
longer regarded as a factor in the
market, though tlie ■'■fine arts of the
republic are using the mineral 14 increasing quantities. 77By supplying
the foreign demand direct and,Controlling the home output, it is hoped
to force the price up to a stable figure
among the 80's. While opposed Oil
principle to monopolies, we ; would
welcome the scheme in the interests
of the welfare of the country, though
it would be just as well to keep an
eye on the syndicate lest the precious
metal in which we are all so much
interested be not further debased.
be, paid weekly.
The Dom in ion Parliament has been
further prorogued till the end of next
month. ;
Attornev-General Davie has sue.
cessfullv fathered a bill through the
House, bestowing authority upon
stipendiary and police magistrates 'o
preside at courts for the recovery of
"ShiaiTdebts, co the , extent of $100.
Just such a sta^'.ute has been required
for years, but; better late than never.

for the settlement of. large colonies of
Scandinavians,   who are desirous of
leaving thc   inhospitable regions of
Minnesota   and   Dakota.      Quatsino
Sound has  been chosen as one site
with   probably    Mud    Bay   as   the
second. ___________
Hon. Mr. Davie has a bill before
the House which should merit for him
the goodwill of wage-earners. It is
entitled "Workmen's Wage Act,
1891." To;be brief; it calls for the
better security of wages on all con
tract and other jobs, and where not
otherwise 'specified, the same must | a seat among the scornful.
In the Organization of the various
parliamentary committees, Jas. M.
Kellie, member for the north riding,
has had his name aitached 7b those
dealing with railways and mining.
J. Fred Hume, member for the south
riding, will occupy his spare moments
on the private bills and standing orders and mining comihiftees.
Port Arthur, the Gibraltar upon
which China placed her rellance to
check the victorious march of the
Mikado's troops upon Pekin, has fallen,
to the indomitable courage, aided by
western civilization and military tactics, of the hardy Japs^ after 30 hours'
desperate fighting. The backbone of
China's resistance lias been broken,
and that mighty nation, is now on its
knees suing for peace, which Japan
will only grant upon the most severe
terms.' "'■ .[dY-y '■■■''■['■'p

agreed between the contestants tbat
Mr. Prentice,: the sitting;:meltibeiy
should' occupy his seat in the House-
undisturbed until the close of 'the
present; session, when * the constitueri-
cy becomes vacant and another elec •
tion follows. This is a novel innovxfc:

ing over a contested seat. "  :     - 7aa?
JY M. Kellie, J\lJPiP;,>;hopiiig
daunted bv his defeat of last session,
has again brought before the, Legislature his bill "respecting ' the incorporation of tramway, 'telephone, and
telegraph companies in -WeSi'Koote-
liay district." If oiir hiemdrv serves
lis rightly, the principle of the bill is
to grant to mine owners the right to
construct tramways and other rieces-
saiy improvements to and' from their,
properties over adjoining territory
without the waste of time incurred in
getting special legislation enacted.
But why alone for West Kootenay;
are not other mining districts' equally
interested in the ramifications of such
a law? : y ■"-"■■>:■. ..
J.Fred Hume has made his maiden
speech in Parliament and acquitted
himself creditably. He confined his
remarks principally- to the mining
industry of West Kootenay; complimented his Opposition leader upon his
reply to the Government orators who
supported the speech from the rhrone,
and positively spoke well of the Premier for introducing a small debts bill.
The inevitable, however, followed
and our two rival members had their
first tilt. In urging the reduction in
the size of mineral claims to 600x
1,5C0 feet, the present dimensions
being alleged too unwieldy, he. trod
on Mr. Kellie's corns, and as a"resu.l*
came in for a mild roasting. J. Fred
has done well and  we would hot be
in the least surprised to see him develop into an useful member of the
House, despite the fact of occupving

THE LOUISIANA LOTTERY
Endeavors to Play the Financier for
a Tenderfoot.
The other day an .express parcel
was handed the financier of-7 The
Ledge, and upon examination it was
found to Contain 50 $1 and one $5 lottery tickets, from the Louisiana Lottery Co., of New Orleans and Kansas
City. The following circular was
wrapped round the tickets: —
Confidential.
My Dear Sir,—-We have decided to
establish a permanent ag-encv in your
localitjr and have  selected you to represent us there.    We 1'ullv  understand and appreciate the reason why
your people have almost stopped buying lottery tickets;  it  is because no
prize ot value has, been drawn there
for years,  and many  have  become
discouraged and ceased to patronize
lotteries entirely.    There  is but one
way to revive the old-time interest
and excitement, and  that is for some
one to draw a prize large enough in
value to stimulate and induce others
to start in buying ticke:s-again.   We
give, two thousand more prizes, than
any other company in the world, and
will guarantee that the sale of a few
of our tickets will result in some ones
drawing a prize, as in  our company
one number iu every eighteen wine.
If some well known man like yourself
should draw $75,000,- fr20,000, $10, 000,
$5,000, or even |1,000 in our lottery,
it would  be the   means  .of selling
thousands of tickets in  your part of
of the country, and would create an
old-time boom  for us again.    Now,
we give  you the  enclosed $5 ticket
free; hoping it may  win such a prize
as suggested above,   fully believing
that should you draw either of the
a^bove.amounts, the, increased sale of
our tickets in your neighborhood during the coming year,would more than
pay us for the money th.us expended.
We wiU certainly do our part to again
awaken public interest in lotteries in
your locality if you will do yours, and
we believe we  know  how to excite
that  interest.    We  enclose   fifty &1
tickets, and we   want   you   to   sell
everyone of them if you possibly can,
as we want as many as possible in
your town interested in the .December
d rawing.    Do. not sell your" $5 ticket.
Keep that for yourself, and if you will
look out for our interests we will look
out for  yours.    We   will   send you
puze lists'of the drawings immediately after they take place, and in addition to this will'"telegraph  you the
capital prize number on the day of
the drawing, if you sell all of the 50
tickets.   yduivcoipTOission; will be 25

Thanksgiving"at the Hotels.
Thanksgiving dav was a memorable event this year at the local hostel-
ries," each m itiT'gwn individual way
celebrating as seemeth them- gbbxL
Turkeys were plentiful, and flanked
with an abundance of niceties.-'.
At the Columbia B. C. Rodd did the
honors in the Bachelor's Retreat with
his customary grace arid generosity.
' The Prospect House gave'its patrons a feast that gladdened their
hearts and made them, realize that
they had something to be thankful
for.
Chef Lebby and Mrs. McDougald
superintended affairs at the Leiancl
House, and with the various good
things provided enabled the bairns to
distinctly understand that Thanksgiving was no empty sound.
Messrs. Megarry & McNeill ably
sustained the good reputation of'their
liou^c. The all-imjoortant turkey
occupied a conspicuous place; while
other delicacies were by no means
forgotten.. Many an orphan, far from
his home in other lands, had' his
jacket well lined at the 'Madden
House feast, and they will remember
it with thankfulness.
Success unaljoved crowned the
efforts of Mrs. Whyte in catering to
the needs of her numerous guests at
the Hotel Nakusp. The menu presented was most tempting and full
well did the company enjoy the
tasty viands. The Hallowe'en festival was exceptionally • well handled
and so w;as t'ie Thanksgiving dinner.
