Paris, Feb. 18. ��� It is unofficially
announced that M. Loubet has received 489 votes; It is also officially
announced that M. Loubet has heen
elected President of the French Republic.
STREET DEMONSTRATIONS,
There were several street demonstrations. The agitation was caused
by MM. Deroulede aid Drumontai d
their party. Nationalists gathered
about the statue ol Joan of Arc and
M. Deroulede made a tiery address
to them. The crowd then marched
to the Boulevard and stopped in
front of the Libre Parole office and
yelled themselves hoarse with cries
of "Vive L'Armee" and "Spit upon
Loubet."
The appearance ol President Loubet in a carriage was the signal   for
hostile demonstrations and cries  of
"Panama,     Panama."    In   opposition to the cries   of   "Panama"   the
supporters of the    President   raised
shouts of "Vive  Loubet."    At  this
stage of the demonstration a detachment of mounted Cuirassiers appeared and  cleared   a passage    ".*������   the
President's caniage. The noise was
then redoubled and the   police had
great difficulty   in   restraining   the
mob.    Suddenly     M.     Deroulede,
Millevoye   and     Habert   appeared.
The mob surrounded M.   Millevoye,
who donned his Deputy's belt which
is his usual method of signalling  to
his friends and his supporters ranged themselves behind the three Dep
uties shouting "Down   with    Loubet," "Resign," "Panama."   When
this body of men reached the Placi
de    L'Opera,     there   was    not   a
sufficiently   strong   foroe of  police
there to bar the way and the   demonstrators finally   returned   to  the
statue of the Joan of Arc, where the
Deputies mounted on   a sand heap
M. Millevoye then waved   a  trt-col-
ored flag aboue M. Deroulede while
the latter harangued the crowd. He
said:    "Listen now what I was prevented from saying at the Versailles
election.    The President belongs to
the people.    1 rejoice at this   manifestation, but today we   cannot  go
to the Elysee   and   spit   upon  him
whom we have  no   wish to   recognize as Chief of the State. We must
allow to rest in peace such as it   is,
the man who is still lying there and
return home.    But on Thursday we
shall not fail to attend   the   funeral
ceremony.    You will find among the
followers of the coffin the judges  ol
the criminal section of the Court of
Cassation and   the   base    Deputies
who elected this President whom we
do not recognize.    You know  your
duty, down wilh this   Republic  and
long live'a Republic of a people."
The demonstrators then  marched
to the Rue Des Pyramides, shouting
and flaunting tri-colored flags.   The
police tried to stop them and tried 10
seize the flags but the mob resisted
and finally returned to  the  Avenue
de L'Opera where a large   force of
police was stationed in front of   the
Military Club.    This detachment of
police succeeded   in  dispersing the
demonstrators, a downfall   of rain
assisting in the work.    As the evening passed there was   a   number of
slight     demonstrations     for    and
against President   Loubet,  but   the
people (generally  were  calm.   The
streets were crowded and the latest
editions of the evening papers weie
immediately bought up.
ing otticcr arrived in his carriage
10 o'clock.

NO DEADLOOK EXPECTED IN THE
JOINT COMMISSION.
The Speaker is Not so Sannuiue and Bemoans the Possible Unsatisfactory Ending*
London,     Feb.     18.���Telegrams
from   Washington,   reporting  that
Ihe Anglo-American Commission  is
encountering serious head-seas, are
followed here with much anxiety  as
lhe opinion  prevails  here  that the
future of the Anglo-American entente
largely depended  on the   success of
the    present     negotiations.      The
Speaker voices the  general  feelin*,'
by saying that the   news   regarding
Ihe Commission is very disquieting.
"It is impossible," the Speaker continues, "to say where   the   fault  is,
but a failure to iirrive at   ;.n   understanding will be a  serious  blow to
the hopes of both countries in regard
to the future relationships."
A representative of the Associated
Press here made enquiries in the
proper quarters and found a much
more hopeful feelingprcvailingthere.
The intimation is that matters have
aken a favorable turn. A high
official said: "I admit that at one
time the outlook was rather black
and it was feared a deadlock would
ensue. But the negotiations weathered the storm, and have got into
smooth water again. We now hope
for a successful issue."
STII.L   MEETING.
Washington,      Feb.       18.���The
Anglo-American   Commission   held
several sessions today,   going over
a variety  of subjects  without final
action on   any   of them.    The   full
Commission   was   in joint  session
during   afternoon  and  reassembled
later in the day and spent until after
live o'clock this afternoon   arguing
over several points at issue.    In the
absence of any ag; cement of a conclusive nature a detiniu statement is
withheld.    Both   the    Engh: h  aid
American Commissioners during the
day held separate   sessions.    There
were no indications today of a  definite break in   the  negotiations  and
the reports that they are  practically
at an end, based on the assumption
that there is no agreement insight, ! resort to arms
are given a positive denial. At the
same time, it is said, such progress
has not been made in the adjustment of the important problems before the Commission as would warrant a definite statement of the probable outcome and the termination of
the negotiations is not yet   in sight.
COOKING   CLASSES.

Legraude   B. Cannon, Gen. Grenville
M. Dodge, God.   Benjamin   E.   Tracy
and Judge E. T. Bartlett.   Mr. Ohoate
n the course  of his speech  said:   "1
believe thnt   never  before,   since   tbe
people of  the United States ordained
our great constitution to establish justice and to provide for the common defense, to promote the general welfare,
to secure Ihe blessings of   liberty,  did
they send any  representative abroad
who bail greater cause to he proud  of
his own country or was sure to  receive
a more hearty and more cordial greeting for its sake, for  whom he is sent,
and that will he the welcome, nob merely from the English Government, but.
also from the   English   people.   T be-
Hove. dun. fr .iu what   i   have   read  or

BSMPORER'S 0ONDOLBN0B8,
Montreal. Feb. 18���Tbe second match
for the   Stanley Cup  and  the  hockey
obampionship of the world, between   tbe
Montreal and Winnipeg Victorias,   was
played here tonight in   tbe  presence   of
tbe largest crowd tbat ever witnessed a
bockey match.   Tbe iee   wuh  soft   and
this was a  distinct    advantage  to   the
borne team  as  the  Winnipeggers   are
used to only bard and keen ioe.    It   wbb
a very bard game until  near  the  end,
wben a regrettable incident occurred,and
tbe match was not finished.   For a most
deliberate foul Bob MaoDougell  of the
Montreal team, was ruled  off for  only
two minutes.   Tbe Wiunipegs were  being very rougbly treated and they claimed tbat  that  MacDougall should  have
been ruled off for the remainder  of  the
match.   Tbe referee left the ioe without
giving a decision.   In the dressing room
Armytage and Gingras of the Winnipeg
team were laid out.   As tbe referee  bad
left the   ioe  the   WinnipeggerB dressed
and returned to their hotel.    Meanwhile
1 -le referee returned  and   gave  his   decision iu favor of the Montreal team  ou
the ground that the Winnipeg team  refused to continue to play.
Tbe incident caused great exoitement
and is tbe sole topio of conversation
There are many of course who support
one team or the other and the Wiuuipeg-
ieva have a host of followers who agree
tbat tbey adopted the right course. Tbe
members of both teams are thorough
portsmen and gentlemen and no pert-oral ill feeling has been   shown  by   either
^ide.
President Code, of tbe Winnipeg teair,
bos submitted the matter to the trustees
of the cup and the general feeling here
is tbat tbe game will be ordered to br
played over again. If this is nut tbe decision of tbe trustees the Montreal Victorias will be awarded tbe cup and it is
n it likely that a Winnipeg team will
ever come east for it again.
THE PLAY.
On Saturday evening the Miner received bulletins almost every minute detailing tbe progress of the game. These
were posted in tbe Hume and Fhair hotels and were read by a large number of
ex-Manitobaus and ex-Montrealera. Tbe

IMT COMMERCIAL
Such Will be the Opening of

SAYS LORD BERESFORD
Distinguished   Englishman   Accorded
Enthusiastic Reception at
Ohioago.
GOVEMMENTWON
Chicago,   Feb.    18.���Lord     Charles
Beresford wns tonight, tbe guest of honor at a banquet given hy the Commercial Club, at which 300 of   the   leading
business and professional men   of   the
city were present.   Lord Charles was
introduced by Cyrus H.   McCormick,
and wben the distinguished Englishman
arose to make his address he was .'or a
moment overcome by the cheers that
greeted him.   His speech was received
with frequent outbursts   of  applause
and as he resumed his Beat  the  cheering continued several minutes.    Hon.
George E. Adams, of Chicago,  replied
to the (address of Lord Beresford.   Although advocating the "Open Door" in
China and filled   with   expressions  of
friendship toward Knglnud, Mr, Adams'
speech was opninst the  idea of a formal alliance hi I ween   tho Uuited States
and any power iu the Old World.
This morniug Lord   Charles   paid   a
visit to the Board of  Trude  where  he
was given a welcome that exceeded in
noise any that he had since arriving  in
the United States.   Itusiness was sus-
1 ended on the floor and he was escorted by President Lyon to the visitors'
gallery between two lines of cheering
and shouting brokers.    A.ftei- tbe g&l-
'ery hud been reached, President Lyon
mado a short address of introduction
and  then paudenioniun was let loose
once mora   After ten minutes Lord
Charles was given   a chance  to  hear
his own voice   and   spoke ss  follows:
"Allow me to thank you for  the great
compliment you have paid   me.   It   is
not only a great  compliment,   to  me
personally, but tothe Associated Chambers of Commerce of England, which I
represent,   I am delighted with the interest which has been shown in thefu-
ure of China.    The future   desired is
certain to come and  there   is   no  oity
ihat has a greater interest in the same
future than Chicago, situsted as it is,
in the centre of your country.    1 shall
regard the opening of China the greatest commercial event of the world, and
I do certainly bellive that the country
will be opened."
Later an informal reception was held
iu the office of the Secretary of the
Board.

SCHEME NOT POPULAR.
Loudon, Feb. 18���The scheme of
Bear-Admiral Lord Charles Beresford,
for the settlement of the Far Eastern
question by the forming of a league to
he composed of the United States.
Great Britain, Get many and Japan, as
cabled here from the United States,
has not aroused enthusiasm in Great
Britain. The Spectator characterized
Beresfoi'd's plan as furtile and"ueedless
as it is immoral". It then proceeds to
argue that neither of the powers mentioned is prepared to provide an army
to resist a Russian invasion.
"On thecont.rnry,"theSpectator sayB:
"Great Urituiu would feel through all
hor veins that n Russian conquest of
Northern China bad indefinitely increased the security of her Indian empire, hy at once absoibing Russian
means, and i-atisfying Russian embi-
tion, while America, which is only
seeking trade, has no army to throw
away. The work would have to be left
to China nnd her new made army,
which will require half a century of
victory to make it equal to a Russian
army."

GETTING ITS DUE.
The Slocan has been jealous of
Trail District for a long time past.
The gold of Le Roi und War E.-irIc
captured the eye of the English mining- adventurer, and Rossland he-
came British Columbia. Slocan,
with all its wealth in silver and lead,
dropped out of sight. This was
bitter disappointment to the men of
Slocan, who never ceased to believe
that their district was worth incomparably more than all the gold
Rossland would ever produce. They
were right, and their indignation at
the neglect was well founded, The
delusion could not last, however;
it was only a matter of waiting,
when the merits of Slocan would be
recognized. The complaint that in
English estimation it is overshadowed by Rossland is already nearly
groundless; before another year
passes over, Silvery Slocan promises
to throw Golden Trail completely
into the shade.
Of   all   the  mining   journals  of
Great Britain,   The  Colonial Gold-
fields Gazette   is  one of the  best.
What  it thinks  of Slocan  will be
best made known in its own words:
"Despite   the   predilections of the
investing public in  regard  to gold
mines, the silver-lead  mines  of the
Slocan district of  British  Columbia
are steadily gaining in   popular favor.    Investors have at length begun to realise the  profitable   nature
of silver mining under the favorable
conditions which  obtain   in  British
Columbia, and it is an   indisputable
fact that, while many of the leading
silver mines in  other  parts of the
world have ceased to be  remunerative, in consequence of the low price
of the white metal, the mines of the
Slocan have steadily paid dividends,
and today *rre more prosperous than
ever.    Large ore  bodies  and high
values enable the Slocan to continue
on the road to prosperity, no matter
how violent the fluctuations in the
price  of silver   may   be.      Taking
Sandon as the centre of a circle wilh
a  radius of two  miles,   it  will be
found   that  the   country  contained
therein includes no less than twenty-
two , dividend   paying   mines,    the
most   prominent of which are the
Payne and  the Slocan  Star.    The
Payne, which is owned  by  a close
corporation, is reported to have paid
its   owners  in   profits   during  the
season of 1898 a greater sum than
that of every mine put  together in
the Rossland  district.    The Slocan
Star has made a strike in the deeper
levels of clean ore, the average value of whioh is 95 ozs. of silver per
ton and 72 to 75 per cent, lead, and
the mine now  ranks   second to the
Payne in the list of shipping properties.    The  other   dividend   paying
mines include the Last Chance, Cariboo-Rambler,    Antoine,      Surprise,
Reco,   Ruth,    Ajax,    Dardanelles,
Treasure Vault, Sovereign, Wonderful, R. E. Lee,   Ivanhoe,   Sunshine,
Idaho, Noble Five,   Noonday, Ajax
Fraction, Blue Bird, and  American
Boy.
1899. Comparisons, we are told, says The Victoria Times, "cannot
are odious, and we have no desire fail to meet with the approbation of
to extol the merits of the silver-lead everyone, friend and opponent alike,
mines of the Slocan to the detriment That is the simplification of the laws
of the gold copper mines of of the Province,^something that they
Rossland. What we wish to point needed very badly." Mr. Martin
out is that although Rossland prop- thought the same of the laws of
erties are the more fashionable with Manitoba, and set himself lo accom
English investors, the mines of the plish the like task there. The re-
Slocan offer at least equally favor-, suit is that the laws of Manitoba
able qportunitles for profitable in-{are in such frightful confusion that
vestment. There are more shipping members of the legal profession are
mines in tbe Slocan than in Ross-j praying for an Attorney-General
land, silver-lead mining around San-j with head enough and industry
don is much less expensive than enough to straighten them out, in
mining in the Trail Creek gold belt, order that they may discover where
and the district is well supplied with they arc at. Wholesale and indis-
traiisport and smelting facilities. In criminate amendments are not sim-
the whole district there is not a pros- plification, as the very simple Times
peet, where the surface showing ought to know,
gave promise of value, that has not
proved profitable under scientific
and energetic development."
Slocan never despaired ; it was
only indignant. It need not any
longer even be indignant. It is coming lo the front again. The mining
capitalist is too shrewd a man to
allow a pennyworth of gold to long
blind him to the greater value of
two pennies' worth of silver. There
is bound to be a revival, and it has
already set in. Slocan has entered
upon a year of such prosperity that
in a short time it will forget that it
was ever neglected.

REGARDING TITLES.
Now that the Hon. the Minister
of Mines has returned to his post of
duty, perhaps he may recognise the
the need of giving his most favorable consideration to an amendment
of the mining laws that is suggested
in The Midway Advance. At present the method of registering a
transfer of property is to record the
instrument, word for word, in a
book for the purpose in the registry
office. This done, the instrument
is handed back, with a bill of not
less than S2.50 and it may be many
times more, which the not too affluent prospector is bound to pay. The
deed itself becomes secondary to the
record in the office,and should there
bj a mistake in the copying, as will
happen with the most painstaking
clerk, there is a cloud on the title
ever after,
The suggested amendment is that
an index only of the instrument
should be recorded, and that
document itself placed on file and
kept in the recorder's office for all
time. For this only a small fee
would be requited. Considering
that the prospector is bled at every
turn, it may occur to the Minister
that a little relief in the matter of
recording titles would not come
amiss.

Why should a prospector be required to pay $25 to renew a lapsed
certificate,as suggested by the Mining Committee of the Legislature?
if entitled to be reinstated at all, he
i ��� entitled on the merits, and that
sum will be considered a pretty Stiff
penalty to have to pay for an inadvertence. Many a prospector wiil
feel it a burden.
An Australian expert just down
f.-om Dawson estimates the Yukon
output this year at $19,000,000. A
short time ago the Minister of
tho Interior was felicitating himself
on the prospect of collecting $600,-
000 royalty on the year's production.
Ten per cent of this estimate is $1,-
900,000; where does the difference
go? Would it not be better to reduce the royalty than to encourage
smuggling on this colossal scale?

GETTING ITS DUE.
The Slocan has been jealous of
Trail District for a long time past.
The gold of Le Roi and War Eagle
captured the eye of the English mining- adventurer, and Rossland became British Columhia. Slocan,
with all its wealth in silver and lead,
dropped out of sight. This was
bitter disappointment to the men of
Slocan, who never ceased to believe
that their district was worth incom
parably more than all the gold
Rossland would ever produce. They
were right, and their indignation at
the neglect was well founded, The
delusion could not last, however;
it was only a matter of waiting,
when the merits of Slocan would be
recognized. The complaint that in
English estimation it is overshadowed by Rossland is already nearly-
groundless; before another year
passes over, Silvery Slocan promises
to throw Golden Trail completely
into the shade.
Of   all   the  mining   journals  of
Great Britain,   The  Colonial Gold-
fields Gazette   is  one of the  best.
What  it thinks of Slocan  will be
best made known in its own words:
"Despite   the   predilections of the
investing public in   regard  to gold
mines, the silver-lead  mines  of the
Slocan district of British  Columbia
are steadily gaining in  popular fa
vor.    Investors have at length be
gun to realise the profitable   nature
of silver mining under the favorable
conditions which  obtain  in  British
Columbia, and it is an  indisputable
fact that, while many of the leading
silver mines in  other parts of the
world have ceased to be   remunerative, in consequence of the low price
of the white metal, the mines of the
Slocan have steadily paid dividends,
and today nre more prosperous than
ever.    Large ore  bodies  and high
values enable the Slocan to continue
on the road to prosperity, no matter
how violent the fluctuations in the
price  of silver  may   be.     Taking
Sandon as the centre of a circle wilh
a  radius of two   miles,   it   will be
found   that  the  country contained
therein includes no less than twenty-
two , dividend   paying   mines,    the
most   prominent of which are the
Payne and  the Slocan  Star.    The
Payne, which is owned  by  a close
corporation, is reported to have paid
its   owners  in   profits   during  the
season of 1898 a greater sum than
that of every mine put  together in
the Rossland  district.    The Slocan
Star has made a strike in the deeper
levels of clean ore, the average value of whioh is 95 ozs. of silver per
ton and 72 to 75 per cent, lead, and
the mine now ranks   second to the
Payne in the list of shipping properties.    The  other   dividend   paying-
mines include the Last Chance, Cariboo-Rambler,   Antoine,      Surprise,
Reco,    Ruth,    Ajax,    Dardanelles,
Treasure Vault, Sovereign, Wonderful, R. E. Lee,  Ivanhoe,   Sunshine,
Idaho, Noble Five,   Noonday, Ajax
Fraction, Blue Bird, and  American
Boy.    The activity with which mining operations are being conducted
in the Slocan may be gathered from
the fact that the  shipments  of ore
for the six months ending December
31st,    1898,   amounted   to  no  less
than   17,856  tons.    The  values of
the ore are not yet available, but it
is expected that the output of silver,
which in 1897 amounted to  -��650,-
000, wiil amount to ,��'1,000,000 for
1899. Comparisons, we are told, says The Victoria Times, "cannot
are odious, and we have no desire fail to meet with the approbation of
to extol the merits of the silver-lead everyone, friend and opponent alike,
mines of the Slocan to the detriment ��� That is the simplification of the laws
of the gold copper mines of of the Province^something that they
Rossland. What we wish to point needed very badly." Mr. Martin
out is that although Rossland prop- thought the same of the laws of
erties are the more fashionable with Manitoba, and set himself to accom
English investors, the mines of the plish the like task there. The re-
Slocan offer at least equally favor-'.suit is that the laws of Manitoba
able Qportunities for profitable in-'; are in such frightful confusion that
vestment.    There are more shipping '��� members of the legal profession are
mines in the Slocan  than in   Rossland, silver-lead mining around San-

and energetic development."
Slocan   never   despaired ; it was
only indignant.      It need  not any
longer even be indignant.  It is com-

REGARDING TITLES.
Now that the Hon. the Minister
of Mines has returned to his post of
duty, perhaps he may recognise the
the need of giving his most favorable consideration to an amendment
of the mining laws that is suggested
in The Midway Advance. At present the method of registering a
transfer of property is to record the
instrument, word for word, in a
book for the purpose in the registry
office. This done, the instrument
is handed back, with a bill of not
less than $2.50 and it may be many
times more, which the not too affluent prospector is bound to pay. The
deed itself becomes secondary to the
record in the ofiice,and should there
be a mistake in the copying, as will
happen with the most painstaking
clerk, there is a cloud on the title
ever after,
The suggested amendment is that
an index only of the instrument
should be recorded, and that
document itself placed on file and
kept in the recorder's office for all
time. For this only a small fee
would be requiied. Considering
that the prospector is bled at every
turn, it may occur to the- Minister
that a little relief in the matter of
recording titles would not come
amiss.
Why should a prospector be required to pay $25 to renew a lapsed
certificate,as suggested by the Mining Committee of the Legislature?
If entiiled to be reinstated at all, he
i-entitled on the merits, and that
sum will be considered a pretty sti.T
penalty to have to pay for an inadvertence. Many a prospector wiil
feel it a burden.
An Australian expert just down
f.-om Dawson estimates the Yukon
output this year at $19,000,000. A
short time ago the Minister of
tho Interior was felicitating himself
on the prospect of collecting $600,-
000 royalty on the year's production.
Ten per cent of this estimate is $1,-
900,000; where does the difference
go? Would it not be better to reduce the royalty than to encourage
smuggling on this colossal scale?

In the contest for the Stanley Cup
the referee declared in advance that
every player guilty of a deliberate
foul would be ruled off. A Montreal player was guilty of a deliberate foul, for he afterwards acknowledged to it; but the referee disregarded his own rule and allowed
him to remain in the game. The
referee is a Montreal man, Winnipeg under the circumstances was
quite justified in withdrawing from
the ice, and the subsequent decision
of the referee, to give the match to
Montreal, is a serious reflection on
that city.

til April   80,    1898,    the   last   annual
meetinc, shows almost  unprecedented
success. During this period there were
mined and shipped to smelters   17,4(18
tons of dry ore. wlui'li yielded   1,881,-
(iOO ounces of fmo silver and 17,786,000
pounds of lend, and   uotted   the   company $975,1)32.40.    Tho profit and   loss
account showed a   credit   balance   of
1627,089.43 of whioh  amount  $550.0110
in dividends has heen paid,  leaving   a
balance on hand of $77,089.43  in  cash
and book accounts.    The company had
thus paid in dividends moro   than   00
por cent of its receipts, over and above
the purchase price   of   the   mine,   all
improvements and (ho costs  of  operation.    Since the firo that  occurred   in '
tbo mine in April. 1898, improvements!
have been mado  which simplified   the
working of the mine.    The total aver |
ago reoeipts per ton of the ore   worked
was 156.61, which was disposed of  ou
tlm average in suoh a way as to   le-ivo
an average undivided surplus of $4.41.
Tho mines were   owned   and   worked
from October, 189(1, till April, 1897, by
Messrs. A. W. McCune,   Scott  Donald
aud W. L. Hoge, under the   name   of
the Payne Mining Oompany, and from
April, 1897  till   the   present   hy   the
Payne   Mining   Company,   to   whom
the former owners turned over $85,000,
all the   profits  realized   during   their
management, after deducting costs  of
operating aud tho amount paid for the
property.    Following  is   a   statement
of the dividends paid since   April  80,
1898:���April, 1898, $56,000; May, $25,-

The Fall Mall Gazette has some interesting correspondence on the "Silvery Slocan.''   It says in part:
"Many of the best mines in the Slocan have passed over to English   companies.    Americans have also  secured
some   promising   properties,   but    in
some instances of very rich mines  the
original holders have preferred to stand
by the claims  that   are   fast   making
them rich.    The   Slocan   Star   is   the
show mine of the district, from which
it takes its name.    This pioporty,   on
the word of that never-failing   authority, Mr. W, A. Carlyle. has  not   only
paid a   larger   amount   for   dividends
than any other mine in   British   Columbia,   apart   from   conl   and   placer
mines, but it bas proved   itself   to   be
the largest silver lead mine so far developed in the Province.    Not even  the
much advertised Le Roi   at  Bossland
has paid so much in dividends  as  the
Slocan   Star.    It  was   discovered   on
Octoiuir 17, 1891, by one, of the present
owners, Mr. Bruce White, and others,
who, following up Sandon Creek,   discovered in the bed of   this   stream,   a
mile above its junction with tho soulli
fork of Carpenter Creek,   the   site   of
town of Sandon, a vien, 1)5   ft.   wide,
of quartz and spathic iron interspersed
with g:dona, zinc blende, and  angular
pieces of tho Hlato country rock.    Prospecting to the west in a   dense  forest
of heavy timber  along   the   strike   of
the vein, at 800 ft.,  a   largo   exposure
of the surface croppings of the big ore
shoot was found, and hero tho  Slooan
Star cluini has developed the oro body.
The average value of the ore is 95 ozs.
silver por ton, 72 to 75 per   cent   lead.
One cannot, iu the scope   of   this  article, givo  it   detailed   description   of
any of the shipping mines,   hut   it   is
instructive to note that   they  do   nol
require half the amount <>f capital  tn
develop them, as do the Kossland properties.    In the case of the best   known
claims in tho Slocan region,   sufficient
money has been obtained from ore  extracted during  development   work   in
pay for thn workings, buildings, mills,
trails, etc., and also to pay dividends.
*   *   *   *   Although tho Klooau is  so
rich   district, and  one,    too,   that   is
many times   larger   than,   say   Kent,
there are hardly   20,000 people   in   it.
It is not that it is hard to get  lit,   for
lhe means of access and   transport  are
excellent, but the silver-bearing  country has been   neglected   in   the   hunt
alter gold.   The country   is   traversed
by several branch lines nf the 0. P. B.
and the Kaslo   and   Hlnean   Bailway,
recently taken over by   the   Kootenay
Valley   Railway   floated   in   London,
connects Sandon with Casio on Kootenay Lake.    Moreover, last  and   handsome steamers run on Slocan Lake and
Kootenay Lako.    These steamers are a
surprise to tho  tourist   who   ventures
into tho Slocan in his worst wuek-day
clothes, thinking ho is   going   among
savages.    They are as superior  to   the
penny steamboats that, run from   London Bridge to Hampton Court   as   the
Pullman   cars   ou   the   London    and
Brighton arc to third-class rattlers  on
tho samo lino."
*   *   *
Tho report   of [.the   Payne   Milling
Company from its commencement un
An item of melancholy interest to
many in Kootenay: Dan Macdonald
of New Denver, who was familiarly
known as "Black Dan" died in the
New Denver hospital on Wednesday of
pneumonia. Dan Macdonald was one
of the early pioneers of the Slooan,
aud was known and respected by everyone in the district.

Eighty tons of ore were shipped from
Silverton during the past week, making 80S tous shipped from it since the
1st. of January last aud 1112 tons
shipped since 9th of December last.
The roads are now, however, breaking
up and it will be difficult to get any
more ore down to'the wharf for some
time. Decreased shipments and increased development work will be the
state of things in this camp for tbo
present.
