NAKUSP TO KASLO
Or Life in the Mountain?.
It was high noon when we pulled
on Jack Tierney's boots, filled our
belt with bu,nk notes, and struck the
trail for Sanr,ait City.    A mile or two
from the com' jg city we came upon
the grade of the N. & S. Ry., and followed it until we reached the Half
Way House.   Here we camped for
the night, and found an excellent and
merry crow;d.     Mr.  McKay, one of
the genial landlords, thinks Summit |
Citv will be surely in it this winter,
and, if the traek does not reach' anv
more than this point 7 until spring-we
think it. will ourselves.   .-'^e-^rind^'ii;
a hard proposition to reach Bonanza
City the next  forenoon.    Our   bjo:s
(Jack's we should say) were as ha- u
as the times, and  would  not  glide
through three feet ot mud with any
great amount of ease.    The dhiatco
between the two cities is about ten
miles, according to science, according
to our experience it was  1C5  miles j
from the portals   of the   Half Way
House to the beautiful lake of Slocan.
We  think the   government  should
have   built   a  sidewalk  along   the
grade.    It would have helped pedestrians wonderfully and cut down the
amount of profanity used in the land.
In some places where the 4 'tote" road
resembles an inland sea, we noticed
that the trees, had  been  blackeucd
and scorched.   This we learned wa --,
caused by a profusion of cuss-words
striking them so often during the day.
We noticed several   hats  along the
road and suppose the owners   had
been  drowned   in   the   mud;     We
swam all these places without any
trouble, and were still alive when we
reached Billy McLean's camp.   We
had a railroad luncli here.   Gentle
and refined reader did you ever have
a square meal in a railroad camp.
There is no bill of fare provided and
most of the partakers do not require
a gin fizz to get up an appetite.    We
got a goo# seat at the table in Billy's
camp and  took   several  stacks  of
potatoes,   strawberries   and   crean\
watermelons and other ingredien 3.
We had a tea drinking contest with a
Swedish Count, who sat on our right.
He|finally raised us five cups more and
we passed and he took   the   pot.   It
was with mingled feelings of pleasure
and joy that we first saw the roof of
Jack  Madden's   hotel, the principal
hostelry of Bonanza §City.   At this
point we got on board the steamer
W. Hunter and in an hour we were
in the far-famed New Denver.   We
stopped at the Hotel Slocan and had
a look at George and Neil.
are two white boys and deserve success.     Grant  Thorburn   runs  their
dining  room  and   has  one  of the
prettiest waiter girls in the country.
The Newmarket is the name of Den-
vers new hotel.    It is very large and
is the home of the capitalist,    Black
& McLennan  are  doing  a  roaring
business at the Central Hotel.   We
found the people very hopeful and
confident that the day will yet come
when pepyer will   outstrip   all   its
rivals and become the leading centre
of this wonderful region.    Leaving
this beautiful town we hit the trail
for Three Forks;/ five  miles distant.
We met D. ■&■■ Bogle on the trail.  He
was heading for Denver in order to
grasp the boom when it arrives.:   'A*
Three Forks we found quite a bustle,
loj houses going up in every d; cs-
tion and the citizens getting ready
for the winter.    Tnis place although

sta.^e runs from here to Kaslo and for
$3.50 you can ride 26 miles over a
road, the upper end of which is in an
almost impasiabie condition. We
passed a six horse team drawing
2700 pounds of freight and it was almost impossible for them to get
through. ' Fifty dollars a ton is the

their hotel and pack train. The

closed in a beautiful day as we
gently slid into the city and found a

opened up, and meals  are   25 cents.
This  is  a   bad   sign.    Better have
them a dollar and everything rolling
high.    And we found Kaslo a city,
with    Bob  Green,    mayor,   Henry
Anderson,   clerk,    C.   W.    McAnn,
solicitor and Messrs.  Sherwood and
Murchisbn city police; force.    One of
the first things the new council done
was to pass a resolution differing exemption from taxation to the K. & S.
Railway provided thoy would make
up  and  commence   the   road  in a
stated   time.    Dave   Kane  told  us
confidentially that a grading gang
would be on  the ground in   a  few
days.    We have since been informed
that Foley Bros, had received a contract to grade the road.    We found
the saloon element actively engaged
in waging war on the c aiiique and it
is quite evident that it may have to
go, as Holland has   not yet   p^'d for
the lumber  used   in  building  the
theatre, it  is  evident that lie must
have lost money, for   being  such a
perfect   gentleman9 he would surely
pay if lie had it.    We have heard
that the old man  Holland was worch

The sale of the Alpha, one ot the
Grady group, which was prematurely
annonced by outside papers last week
has, been made by Grady, Latz and
Briggs to N. F. McNaught arid has
been made a matter of record at the
mining recorder's office at this place.
The consideration is $70,000, of which
there is a large cash payment. The
Alpha is a good property iand the purchaser, Mr. McNaught,' and those who
are interested with him may congratulate themselves on being foiv

Henry Mahon has received returns
from his shipment of thirteen tons of
ore from the Mountain Boomer. The
returns show that the ore went 261
ounces of silver per ton arid 43 per
cent lead, It cost $ 15 per ton to mine
the ore, $3 per ton to transport if to
head of lake Slocan, $25 per, ton to
pack it on. mules to Nakusp and ^7.50
from Nakusp to Tacoma. ItAvasjaid
down at Tacoma at a cost of ?• 50.50
per ton. The lead in the ore paid the
smelter charges, $20 per ton, after
paying, duty. vTlie.-silveE.jat ^cents*
per ounce amounted to about $19Jjjer
ton, or a profit of $139.50. a '.Xa
Fourteen men are at work; on the
Idaho. 7 Sixty pack animals have
been taking away the ore, which
averages 150 ounces of silver and 70
per cent lead. The owners, who coiii-
menced to work the mine only four
week's ago, now have warehouse receipts for 100 tons.
Messrs Finch, Essler and'Brown, of
the Egypt have a force of men trenching. They ha,ve run "a : trench a100
feet, and ail the way find; excellent
float. They have the Mountain Chief
ledge and are trenching to catch
another ledge which they-, believe to
be higher up the hill side. They
have establisned winter quarte i's for
themselves and their employees.
W. D. McKnight has taken a bond
on the Silverton and Fisher Maiden,
two prospects ten miles up Silverton
Creek from the lake, and believed by
many to be the best properties discovered this year. Mr. McKnight is
having a sleigh road made up the
creek to the propertiies, and will commence shipping ore in a few weeks.
. Hector Sproat and Chas. Mclvend-
rick have been putting in considerable time on Alec Sproat's elaini, orie
ofthe best properties on Fourmile.
Surveyor Twigg, Arthur Dick and
Frank Culver went up „there yesterday and when they return they will
have every line of the claim accurately drawn.
The last payment was made on the.
Mammoth October 1st by Chas. G.
Griffith of Helena Montana, to Jap
King and Ben Anderson. The Mammoth is the fraction adjoining the
Mountain Chief.
Geo. Fan-burn had an assay made
yesterday on ore from the Ottawa,
which, adjoins the Wakeiield. The
assay showed 400 ounces in. silver. —

A Clever Indian.
The Colonist says that Fort Rupert
Johnnie, who is at present in-Victoria
is an Indian of an inventve turn of
mind. His visit was for the purpose
of gain, and the method he proposed
to adopt in enriching himself was ex-
plained in a neatly written notice
adorning the roof of a skilfully carved
dance house which he on Saturday
exhibited to the admiring audience.
The jlittle building is a; perfect model
of a norther^.; Indian council housed
and within it contains 230 carved and
costumed figures, with 40 different
kinds of images in four rows, besides
many models of gods, each having
some particular power assigned to
him. All the many grotesque figure's
are arranged on strmgs,;<anji-\/-^irj§s.
and take part in the Tamonas or winter dance, a distinctive festival of the
tribe. Johnnie offers the ingeniously
constructed attraction for sale, asking
$1000 cash for it, or will! exhibit it
for 50 cents a look.
Kettle Was a Brick.
At a late dinner p^rty in Kaslo,
the meal being pronounced ready by
the butler, a gentleman by the name
of Kettle took a young lady to whom
he had been introduced by the host,
... */   A '
down to dinner. The lady was of a
decidedly facetious disposition, and
desiring to exhibit her talent in that
direction, opened the conversation,
with :   ■;        '■':«■        . . -::A,
"Let me see. I did: not quite catch
your name when introduced to you
in the drawing rooinji^t nq^V"."
"Kettle is my name," ;said the
gentleman, in response.
"Ah, a a peculiar name, rather.
Are you married, may I ask?"
"Oh; yes," was the reply. ,
•,' 'Then there is a female Kettle,"
she continued; "and are there any
little Kettles, Mr. Kettle?"
"Oh,   yes,   madam;     three   with,
spouts arid two without."
There was at once a change in the
conversation. ^.a   ?-

A SURPLUS OF VIRTUE.
When it became known, that Kaslo
was about to become an incorporated
city, some of her citizens anticipated
the eon-iine1 hour, and determined
that the Theatre,Comique should no
longer wave its ' 'banners on theftuter
wall."
The Comique is not one of those resorts to which gentlemen take their
wives, it is not a place which is calculated to improve either public or
private morality, within its precincts
we must never expect to find either
culture or; talent; education too is not
well represented therein, but on the
other hand it presents a lewd appearance, a something which is suggestive
which does not . attract our better
qualities, but. wh$ch apioeals strongly
directly, to the lower and most bestial
part of our nature..
A' double row of boxes, called
private, a boisterous pit, a number of
meretriciously attired females' an
orchestra, and a row of lamps throwing a glare of light upon tawdry
ornamentation, —and there is Kaslo's
Theatre Comique.       . 7
Hither nightly, wend their devious
way the would be . pleased citizens,
gray-haired men and young boys,
and altho there is nothing worthy the
name of amusiiment offered, , they
still continue their visits, and find
something which draws '.them' again
and again within the "slummy portals."
'•■ But the edict has gone forth, "The
Comique must be closed" and society,
Kaslo society is shaken to its centre.
The petition which emanates from
the so loon-keepers of Kaslo, and which
claims that the Comique Theatre is a
dangerous place, may contain a.large
share of truth, but "the pot must not
call the kettle black."
Virtue, innocence, etc., have so
little part in this petition that their
appearance, even specious as it is.
almost causes a blush to rise upon
hardened cheeks.
The real truth, the genuine question
at issue is that Holland at tlie Comique
sells nearly all the liquors which are
dispensed in the city, and the regular
dealers are looking on, doing nothing
but deploring the success of an institution which they themselves advocated some six months ago, when
they too wished to boom the town.
The Comique has made no virtuous
pretensions, but it has been the scene
of much questionable conduct. That
it should be closed, there is no second
opinion, but it should never be closed
upon the petition of a class -of persons
whose only desire is the removal of a
successful rival, and who offer nothing
better in kind tho'perhaps in degree.

What changes a few months bring.
Last spring we had a bank account.
To-day iwe have no account of the
the bank. We left Kaslo on the
steamer Nelson. , We found the
genial Macpherson still acting as
purser, and smiling as usual. At
Nelson, the capital, we discovered a
ledge of profound stillness. No rush,
no excitement, no noise Everything calm, peaceful and still as midnight in a cemetry. The people
seemed to a be 7 happy and are still
talking about the Silver King. This
probably" is as old a chestnut as the
K. & S. Ry., We were in the Miner
office, the staff was sober as far as we
could judge. We met the sheriff.
Be subscribed. Wo want more like
him. Jim Dawson and Bruce Crad-
dock still hold the fort at the International. After a short ride over the
0. [&. K. Railway.' with Conductor
Graham we arrived at Robson, Louis
Levesque keeps a; good hotel here
and that is about all there is to Robson. On board the steamer Columbia
we had-a pleasant time. Captain
Troup- had charge owing to Captain
Gore's illness. He looked weary and
worn and no wonder for to captain a
river steamer at this time of the year
is no sinecure. When we got to
Nakusp. we found a crowd. . waiting
for us, most of them with shot guns.
We talked them out of their grievances by, stating that Ricardo Fraser
and Ananias Wallbridge had edited
the/paper in our absence. In conclusion we might say that it still costs
three dollars to get an annual interest
in this Ledge. Don't be afraid of
your money. Walk up to the office
with your trio of silver cart wheels,
and help us enlighten the world.
Our office is on. Broadway and is surrounded by the blackened and
charred remains of the primeval
forest. Ed. Corning keeps .a saloon
opposite our editorial palace, and
every new subscriber gets one of his
famous cbck(;ails as a premium

What Might Have Bee_i.
I've been to Kaslo's mining boom,
But I wish that I had stayed at~home,
Why. did I from 'Mount Pleasant roam—
X To Ka?lo?
Why did I leave.my. littleshack? f*7.
Of comfort there I had no lack. 7
Thinking to get rich, I up and packed—
" Axd-dx   ddX'    F£r Kaslo.
I've climbed up ou her rocky steep,
I've gazed upon that lake so deep,
My uripHowed head I've had to slesp—
In Kaslo!
I 've walked to Vancouver on thetrack
From Kaslo town—I'll n'er go back,
In Kaslo lots- I've 'dropped my sack—
O'Kaslo!
And now to Vancouver I've got free,
I'll take a boat and cross the sea,
111 go and be a Japanee—
t Far from Kaslo.

up well and the citizens of Nakusp
are, no doubt, proud of it, as they
