Thursday saw the termination ol
the present contract between the
Omaha smelting* works and the Slocan Star people, the last of the ore
stored at Three  Forks for almost a
year having* been sent forward on
that day. The Kootenai and Lytton
each took-out-a big- load, 295,0C0
pounds in all, at the release value of
$14,750. This has all been forwarded without a mishap of any kind, and
in ; good • order. As intimated last
week, the Alpha mine, on Four Mile
creek, which commenced'the season's
shipments, has resumed its export,
though in smaller quantities. The
ore, as at first, goes to Omaha, and
its returns are certain to convince
Alex. Mackenzie of the value of his
excellent property. Three carloads
of ore from this mine were brought in
oh Tuesday's train, having been re-
shipped from the steamer W. Hunter
at Roseberry. The Le Rbi mine, on
Trail-creek," made its usual weekly
shipment, amounting to 44 tons, to
East Helena, at a valuation of $2,200.
Lane Gilliam forwarded from Kaslo
25£ tons to Great Falls, the-value ber
ing $2,550.. Locally the shipments
stand;—'     v - - - '

from Spokane on the Lytton Thursday. On the way up he inquired
about the Cariboo creek discoveries
and gleaned considerable information from Capt. Troup. At" Nakusp
he procured numerous specimens .of
the rock and pronounced them very

Thanksgiving Dinner.
Following up the success ofthe Hallowe'en dinner, the Hotel Nakusp has
an elegant spread prepared in honor
of Thanksgiving day, as will be
gleaned from a perusal of the menu
published in another part ©f this
issue. Mrs. Whyte superintends the
details and guarantees to all who attend—everyone is welcome—the best' the road is ready to take it
E.   Mohun,   C.E., Government inspector, who has returned to .Victoria
from an official visit to Nakusp, says,
in the Colonist, that the Nakusp &
Slocan Railway is practically fiaisjied
trains having  been running upon it
for several days,  the length of the
road being 37 miles.   From  three to
six carloads of ore pass over it daily,
machinery for the concentrator and
other freight being shipped by it. He
has no doubt that in every way it
will be a success and  meet the requirements  of the district.   It is a
capital r6ad, but owing to the mountainous character of the country some
,of the grades are very heavy.    Nevertheless it makes from 15 to 20 miles
an hour with ease and safety.    The
bridges are well built and there is a
good solid..road bed,   so that in all
probability it will be possible to cover
the whole distance before long in two
and one half hours.    The company
is building a wharf 800 feet long at
Nakusp,  and  a   wharf and freight
shed at Wilson creek    The buildings
at Nakusp and Three Forks are of
first  class   construction,   much   the
same as those at Kamloops, every facility being afforded for the handling
of heavy freight.    The road is reached 15 miles by rail from Revelstoke
to Wigwam,   thence by steamer to
Nakusp.   Mr. Mohun came down to
Victoria from Nakusp in 39 hours, including a six hours lay-off at Revelstoke.   At present the ore shipments
do not equal the full carrying capacity of the road, for the reason that the
rdad is not run up to its facilities.
But there is plenty of ore so soon as
Rossland Will Undoubtedly Get the
Works.
It is only a question of a short time
when Trail creek will have a smelter.
At the present time it costs $4 per ton
to take thc ore from thc mines to the
railroad at Northport.    The total cost
of transportation to,Tacoma and treatment is SflG per ton. . Bergstown, an
assaybr'from Butte, visited the'eamo
'fchisfa-lV^nd oifered to smelt'thc ore
for $10, He afterwards dropped his
price-to ^7-.per ton, and wanted the
Le. Roi company to guarantee him
20,000 ton's of "ore before he would set
up-hjs HO,G00'.plant.* The Le, Roi
people are looking: for the best of it, '
and by investigation discovered that
their ore could, be treated for $4.50
per ton, and in consequence did not
close any deal with the Montana man.
When the ore can be treated so
cheaply at the mines, it is a foregone
conclusion that the owners will not
ship much of tlieir product to Tacoma.
-Northport is putting forth its claims
as a- smelting point, but it is more
than likely that thc smelter or smelt-
ers-'will nestle in the shadow of Spokane nlount^_;^yQ4-Ja^^^.QlltLol, the

Have Known Him.
Many prospectors in the Kootena}'
country knew Mark Twain when he
breathed the sage brush air of Nevada and did penance on the Aurora
Standard and the Virginia City Enterprise.    A Slocan veteran said the
other day that  when  he knew the
noted humorist,   Mark was in  hard
luck and bached one winter in a cabin with two miners at Aurora.    The
trio had  hard  work to keep loaded
with pork and beans, but Mark was
proud, and in order to keep up appearances and leave the impression
with the neighbors that they were
wealthy, Mark would  take a gunny
sack and gather up the empty cans
at the rear of the restaurants.    He
would then take them to the cabin
and strew around it the cans marked
roast turkey,  pineapple,  bciled elephant, corned sausage, fried shrimps,
and   other    names    suggestive    of
princely living.    Mark flanked the
cans with oyster shells and bottles
labeled Dry,  Extra Dry, and Very
Dry.   In this way.and by not giv ng
dinner parties, or allowing strangers
to visit the interior of the domicile,
Mark and his partners led the people
of Aurora to believe tliat they were
worn-out millionaires desirous of living retired lives.    It was reported recently that Mark was again in hard
luck and that he could not work the
saine racket in Hartford   with th_
same success that he did in the Nevada gold camp, many, many years
ago. _____

From present indications  it  looks
as if there would not be much snow,
between New Denver, and Three
Forks" this winter. This would be
New Denver's luck. Build a good
sleigh road and then have the fleecy
reruse to remain for the season.
Instead of the Government making
the holders of property in New Denver settle up in full, they should
throw off the balance due, and give
each man a ' clear deed who would
build upon his property. In this
way they would build up the toynt
aiid enable themselves to more than
get even on - the balance of lots still
owned by the Government.
