Slocan Ave.
Nelson showed more than its wonted activity last week, by reason of
the holdinir of the autumn assizes,
before Mr. Justice Crease, necessitating the attendance of innumerable
legal luminaries, witnesses, clients,
etc. The docket was a light one, yet
the time consumed in the disposal of
the cases'was so extended, that a redistribution of the tabulated sittings
of the court in other places is incumbent. Among those present' at the
assizes were: Mr. Justice Crease and
wife; Hon. Theodore and Mrs. Davie;
Messrs. McAnn & McArthur, Kaslo;
li. D. Kerr, New Denver; atnd C. Wilson, Vancouver.
The following grand jurors answered the roll-.call: Messrs. Selous (foreman), Robson, Holt, Lemon, Fletcher,
Farley, Houston, Hodgins, Neelands,
Rolfe,    McGregor,    McKenzie,    A.
Fletcher.    Henderson, .  West,    and
Proctor.    These were duly charged
by His Lordship as. to their duties,
and,- after finding a true bill in the-
case of Regina vs. Thomas, for indecent assault, made their presentments
In this attention was called'to. the absence of crime in the district during
the past year; impossibility of procuring evidence in the case of Regina
vs. Kerlin; dangerous location of a
powder magazine near Nelson; inad:
equacy and poor management of the
county gaol; pressing need of a Court
Judicial District, owing to increased
mining interests, and a registrar's office; necessity  of a Petty. Debtor's
Act; the urgent need of a Land Registry office for West Kootenay; requisite amendment to the' Mineral Act
regarding- annual  assessment work
on claims; unsanitary condition of the
city of Kaslo; and lack of proper police protection in the Slocan.
The case of Regina vs, Ediams, for
alleged stealth of ore from the Bon
Ton mine was, at the suggestion of
the Attorney General, thrown out,
because of "the absence of incriminating evidence.
Croasdaile vs, Hall, a suit for commission for arranging the sale of the
Silver King property to English capitalists, resulted in a verdict of $5,750
in favor of the plaintiff.
Regina vs, Thomas, for indecent
assault on Mrs. Hesketh, the principals hailing from Nakusp, came to
an unexpected end. Attorney General Davie, for the Crown, proved
that the accused had committed the
assault, but R.B. Kerr, of New Denver,   who  defended,   succeeded   in
nailing the date of the assault down
to the 18th of last January, and on
tlut day he proved a perfect and
clear alibi. ' Under tlie circumstances
the accused was advised to plead
guilty to common assault, which he
did, and was dismissed with a few
cautionary remarks frqua the Bench, to
appear for sentence when called on.
Mr. Kerr was warmly congratulated
upon the able manner in which he
handled the defence.
Hendryx vs. Hennessey, for an interest in the Noble Fh e group «..f
mines/ in which the former alleges
he grub-staked tlie latter when the
property -was discovered, was still
occupying the attention of the court
when last heard of.
WANT SLOCAN ORE.
Various Smelting Comr antes Negotiating for Supplies.
Capt. Fitzstubbs Exonerated.
Just now a keen competition is existing between the rival smelting
companies to control the output of the
Slocan mines. So' far, however, the
Grant-Oma ha Smelting Co., of Omaha,
Neb., represented by E. J. Matthews,
formerly of Kaslo, has the inside
track. They have contracted'with
the McNaughts for'800 tons ofthe Al-
p a ore, from Four-mile creek, and
this is being rapidly handled by way
of Roseberry and the Nakusp & Slocan Railway. The first shipment
psssed up to Revelstoke last Thurs-,
day, amounting to CO*tons, while 90
more followed on Monday. There is
a strong possibility ©f this contract
negotiating
, Mr. Justice Crease, who. sat on the
recent investigation into tho charges j being enlarged to over 1,000 tons
of alleged malfeasance in office, made
against Gold Commissioner Fitzstubbs
by John Sanderson, intimated last
week that he had forwarded his report to Lieut. -Governor Dewdney, and
that he had reported strongly in favor of the Captain,, and' exonerating
him entirely from . ,all suspicion of
wrong-doing. " Capt.. Fitzstubbs has
resumfii^hi&^dtttefis?*. as, -gold commissioner, which he was?, compelled ..to
relinquish some months;ago owing,to
ill health.
Ore Shipments.
Ore is coming into town at a lively
rate, several carloads each day being
billed. ( The first shipment out was
made on Thursday, via" Revelstbke,
followed by still heavier shipments
this week. The ore is from the Alpha
mine on Four-mile creek, and is pon-
signed to the Omaha smelter, E. J.
Matthews being the representative
bu;f er. Each week a tabulated account will be kept • in these columns
of thev amount shipped, as below;
DATE. MINE. WEIGHT. VAX.UE.
Sept 18 Alpha 120,000 lbs. § G,000
Sept. 17               " 189.000 P,000
Sept. 19              ". 220,0)0 11,000
The value is reckoned on the basis of
the release manifest of $100 per ton,
but this will  be found  to be <>elow
rather than above the actual worth
of the ore.
Nakusp sent a numberof representatives to the Hot Springs on Monday
to attend the grand ball, given by
Bruce Craddock, at the opening of
his'palatial sanitarium.
A most enjoyable social hop took
place at the Leland House on Monday
evening. Upwards of 30 persons
were present, and they had a huge
time. Open-handed hospitality was
shown to all by mine Host and Hostess McDougald.
There is some sham
for the handling of the Slocan Sta •
output, to the extent of 2,600 tons, and
it is believed that Mr. Matthews will
capture   that  for   his   firm.t   Other
buyers are treating for supplies from
different   mines,   on   behalf of the
smelters at Tacoma, Great Falls, San
Francisco, etc.-  It is known also that
.Mi*;   Young, -owEer*. of: the,* Golden-
smelter, is in the Slocan, seeking to
contract   for    about    2,000   tons  of
second class ore for  his works, to bo
shipped out via this town and Revelstoke.    The rate quoted for shipment
is $6 per ton to Nakusp, fience >}lb' to
Omaha; $8 per ton to Great Falls or
Tacoma, and $10.50 to San Francisco.
Shippers are somewhat dubious of
the Revelstoke route during the winter, owing to the uncertain transfer
from the head of the lake to the Wigwam, a point on the R.& A.L.R. some
15 miles below Revelstoke. The C.
P.R. have undertaken to build th!-*
sleigh road and maintain commu; -
cation nil winter, and will accept all
ore proffered. If they fail, Kaslo will
again experience the benefit of the
ore traffic. In any case it will get a
share, but as it costs more to haul it
that way, the odds* are in favor of
the Nakusp route.
Mr. Matthews-states that the American'' tariff changes have benefited
Slocan mine owners to about $12 per
ton on all ore exported to the other
side. Relative to the Pilot Bay
smelter, he failed to see how its operation could be made a financial success, owing to the lack of proper
fluxes, the-cost pf. importing .fuel, and
the similarity of the ores to be offered
for treatment.
A number of small capital ists, from
Puget Sound, have gone into the Big'
Bend in the past two weeks.

out somewhere below low.tide. They
think this layer could be reached by
sinking a shaft near the buildings,
but they can't sink a shaft profitably
on account of the water coming in.
The black sand lays on clay, and all
the layer, and the other layers above
it, are, so to speak, afloat with water.
So they work only after a storm or
after a heavy surf, because rollers
from' distant storms sometimes do the
work for them when no wind is blowing there. The weather on the average keeps them busy about half tl e
line.
The men work the sand on shares,
and do so well that, paradoxical as it
inay seem, there is difficulty in keep-
. , ing a full gang of "men at work. The
trouble is that so soon as the men get
a few ounces of gold dust to their
credit they must take it and go away
to Punta Arenas and swap.it for such
joys as may be. had in that tiny metropolis.
• Of the product of the diggings no
definite statement is made. Julius
■- Popper in his pamphlet"says that his
statement that he had found gold at
Paramo was derided as an effort to
sell mine stock until he had made
two1 shipments' of dust, the first
weighing 17_- pounds and the other
but little.short of 30. pounds. After
that he had to fight to hold his claims,
. while a camp that he had started oh
vthe south side of San Sabastian bay,
at an expense of several thousand
dollars, was wholly destroyed by a
troop of Chilean, soldiers, who made:
an unwarranted . raid into-Argentine
territory, hoping in that way to create a disturbance that would end "in
Chile's acquiring the new gold diggings.
• All the wonderful stories that have
been told of other bonanza districts
are told" in Terra del Fuego. The
tale.of the party that abandoned his
mine, which after digging a foot
deeper paid his companion a fortune,
and the yarn of the tenderfoot who
started a mine in the most unlikely
spot in the district and got rich are
all there.
Five or ten dollars a day are scoffed at by the bold prospectors, and
those who remain at the old diggings
to pan out this pitiful sum are regarded with contempt.
There is not a mining camp in all
the region such as Cripple Creek,
Colo., or Calico, Cal. The placers,
though found in "almost every sandy
beach in the region, are all soon
worked over and thereafter pay only
day wages. So no camp or village
springs up, as \-?ould were a rich true
fissure vein discovered. But Ushuaia,
in the Beagle1 channel, the capital of
Argentine Terra del Fuego, has three
stores and a small mixed population,
besides the troops that maintain Ar-}
gentine dignity, and, with its occasional Indian visitors, its happy-go-
lucky architecture, and its heaps of
empty bottles, is not unlike a North

Some of his imitations were.fair, particularly that of the euphonium, in
which his throttle organs played a

A well-known contractor of Revelstoke made a statement in that place
last week that he was ready to erect

MIHEEAL VS. PLACER.
Cariboo  Creek Miners Developing a
liiew Feature.
Since the inception of the placer
fever on Cariboo creek, prospectors
have been scouring the neighboring,
hills, seeking to ^discover the quartz
lead from whence come the coarse
tailings found in the bed of the
strea n 1. Th at tl leir efforts ha ve been
successful is amply attested by the
official' records here, and, for the
time «being, the placer fever has
given place to the quartz craze. So
far the discoveries are centred round
Cariboo creek and its tributaries, and
.the ledges range in width from a few
inches to' several feet. In many
small streaks of galena appear, with
an abundance of copper stains and
white iron. Barren ledges are not
infrequently met with, but in the
main those staked out assay high in
the yellow stuff.
■ The first claim staked out was t*c
Golden Eagle, by George Hardie.
This is located on the Government
trail, on tFe west side of Cariboo
creek, one and a half miles above
Mineral creek. The ledge in tNs is
well defined, several feet in width
and of white quartz; An assay on
this went as high as #481 in gold and
6 oz. in silver . per ton. D. A-., McDougald and P.M. Yingling purchased shares in this for several thousand
dollars,, and it is their intention to
prosecute development work in a
vigorous manner. '"Since then ■ 19,
other claims :have "been recorded,
quite a number coming in this week.
S. Walker and D. J. Darraugh
"last week located-a mineral claim to
.the foot of their placer property, and
from the contour of the ground it is
believed to be an extension of the
Ora Grand a, owned by C. Vader and
A. Taisior, assays from which have'
shown over $70 in gold. The former
couple have disposed of a third interest in their claim for a tidv sum, upon"
the strength-of the surface showings.
A test sample, of 12 pounds of rock
will be forwarded to Vancouver next
week for assay.
These discoveries are not above 1G
miles from town' and could be easily
reached were a trail built in from the
foot of the lake, affording a quicker
route than bv wav of Burton Citv.

miners will be found at Punta Arenas.
The peculiarities which make Pmita
Arenas .at once one ofthe most interesting and one of the most disappointing towns in the world will he described at another time; but it may
be said now that it is a free port—\e'..
no tariff duties are levied pn imports,
and it is a port of call for, three great
lines of steamers running  between
Europe and .thewest ^oast of South
America.
It has about thirty steamers a month
in port. Consequently supplies—picks
pans, clothing and food—are cheaper
here than at any other miners'supply
town in the world.    But while a man
may get these at a low price here he
lias to buy a boat instead of the bur-,
ros he would buy in the States to carry
Jiis outfit.    A couple of burros   cost
say ^-35, in Colorado, but here he must
buy a sloop or a catboat, and he ouirht
to buy a schooner fifty feet long instead. . Now any kind of a .boat"fit
to carry' even the amphibious prospector, of the Cape Horn region costs
at least $100 in gold,  and must be
fitted out at a,cost of from $25 to $103
pore, not to mention the' mining out
fit proper. ■""       *   :
Having an outfit to suit, the prospectors' sail away south, feeling quite
certain they' wilh come back with
their hooker ballasted with dust and
nuggets. Every year some sail away
and the sail disappears beneath the
white peak of Mount Sarmiento, that
is plainly seen from the water front
pf Punta Arenas. After three or four
months the ' 'White Wings outfit" or
