Tbey Talk Very   Favorably of
Thia Diatrict.
One of the best known men in the
mining world is J. B. Grant of Denver, Col., president of the Grant
-inciter and ex-governor of the state,
who ia in Sandon with three other
well known mining and smelting
men, E. W. Nash of Omaha and
Wm. Braden, E. B. Braden and E.
J. Matthews, of Helena. Governor
Grant is a pleasant, unassuming
man of middle age and very conservative in what he says for publication. He has been interested in
the Slocan country three vears, having l>een connected witfc John A.
Finch in the Enterprise and with
Wra. Braden and E. J. Matthews in
the Lucky Jim. He is also interested in the Humboldt. The gentlemen will be in Sandon several
Last evening the governor and
partv were in the parlors of the
Goodenough talking on general matters. He declined to let tlie public
into any of the secrets of smelting,
but said that tbe Blocan country was
interesting mining men in*Colorado
considerably, specially are the
wet, or lead, ores, in demand by
MiMlters, and command fluxing
4-i'iicea, which is considerably more
than that of dry ores. Silver is now
ouoted at about 60 cents, and he
does not anticipate that it will go
any lower, but will probably rise
with the revival of business in the
states. One reason of the decline of
silver ia the failure of crops and the
famine fat India, and the consequent
stopping of the demand from that
country. It is not likely that the
United' States government will do
anything toward restoring the price
of silver for some time at least.
Mr. Grant said there would be a
number of concentrators built in this
district this summer, but whether
the Lucky Jim would build one he
did not * know. Eventually there
will be smelters, but how soon will
depend on circumstances. Mining
is like any other business and is governed by business principles. Although only mlnea with high grade
ore that could stand long distance
shipment have been worked, there
are proliably a number of others
here that would be worked when the
charges were reduced. The party
haa been in Nelson and Kaalo and
will go from here to Rossland.

Mining Notes.
The Goodenough min. hav. their whole
fore, working on a long tunnel to strike the
lead at a good depth, and expect to reach it in
6tl day*.
Charles O. Griffith, Scott McDonald and
others are working several men on the Freddie Lee putting in new timber and cleaning
ont the tunnels.
A six-inch vein of galena has been struck On
the St. Keverne. adjoining the Payne group,
in the crosscut at a depth of k*W feet. Sid Nov*
man and J. D, Farreli are among the cvrnent.
The Neoma, on Carpenter creek above Cody,
has started development work with seven
men. The property V-tdongs to Hon. Montague, minister of education, Ottawa, Hon. Hag-
gart. inini-rter of marine and fisheries, and Dr.
Carroll of Vancouver.
The Arlington, on Springer creek, made a
strike of two and a half feet in tho tunnel last
week. The ��urface showing on this claim was
the lipest ever found in the Slocan, bat
pinched out on development. It is now hoped
that a good body ha*, been found.
The Reco is shipping four cars a weak, running avt ounce-* silver and 65 per cent. lead.
The work done is only development and the
mine wm not be worked UU the tram is built,
for which survey hi now being made. The

Charged With Forgery at Kaalo.
On Wednesday John at. McPhee of Kaalo
was arrested, charged with forgery. In the
preliminary examination before Justice*.
Chipuian and Green it was brought ont that
on Augnitt 14 of last year McPhee and his partner. Alexander Cummings, had re-docated a
lead man'<i claim, Uie Yosemite, in the Eure-
ka group on the Blue ridge, which was at tbe
tune in the hands of the official administrator, and for this reason Recorder Keen refused
to place tbe relocation on record. Evidence
wa* brought forward by the prosecution to
show that McPhee, to be avenged on Recorder
Keen, had circulated a peUtion praying the
government to remove him, and to this petition he. McPhee, had forged signatures of sev.
end well known business men, among them
Dan Bongard, J.C. Eaton, D. MoPhail and
others. After hearing the evidence brought
forward tbe magistrates committed the prisoner for trial.
Considerable surprise was felt here at McPhee* s arrest, aa he has been in this district
since '91 and has previout'y find a good character.

Boats run daily on.the Columbia river, yet
the mail only comes down from Revel stoke
three times a week. This makes many Kootenay people kick abont the slow Canadian
Government at Ottawa. This is wrong. They
have no right to ~mak. a fuss. Men who oom��
into a new coma*,-<y like this should be prepared to give the eastern Canadian Government
a chance to wak. up. ttwill wake np, pro!.-
ahly in ten .vears, and then realise the Injustice that has been done us in the far west. In
the meantime, indignant and wrathy readers,
do not kick at the postal authorities. Send

mail service being slower than On first coming of dividend, from some of Rossland**

One of the Great Properties of
the Slocan District.
The Ruth, although one of the
oldest and best paying mines in the
Sandon belt, is one of the least talked
about. This is because the company is a close corporation and have
no interest in advertising to the outside world what the mine is doing.
A more gentlemanly set of men,
however, than the operators of the
mine, from the superintendent down
could not be found in the whole dominion, and every opportunity was
afforded a newspaper man to see
and learn what the great property
is doing and will do In the future.
There are 91 men employed, including inside and outside workmen,
and a trip through the mine found
them working in pairs in every part,
but all getting out ore that would
make a bonanza king's heart glad.
Tbe mine is developed by three
tunnels, and another is now going
in under contract, 150 feet below
No. 3. Off of these tunnels, every
few feet, are crosscuts, muprises,
.hafts and winzes, but no stoping
has been done, till it seems impossible to go in any direction without
finding mineral, the ledge appearing
to have been twisted and turned in
every conceivable manner. Tlie
work now going on is to find new
l-odies, and as soon as the management is satisfied that a good body
has been found the men are put to
work at some other point. Consequently great blocks of sparkling
galena are waiting, untouched, until facilities are got for handling it.
The main tunnel is 1000 feet long
and mineral is seen above, below
and on each side the full length.
The breast of the tunnel is in a Hue
body, and the other tunnels show np
the same way. To estimate the
value in sight is out of the question,
but that it is immense and will take
vears to mine is certain.
Thirty-five tons a day is being
shipped, mostly high grade carbon
atea, as it is preferable to ship the
carbonates instead of tbe galena. A
sawmill is on the wav here and will
be put up at the middle tunnel. As
soon as tne lumber can be got out a
tramway will be built and another
bunk bouse put np to double the
force of men. A concentrator will
be built some time in the future and
tbe concentrating ore is now being
piled on the dump.
The mine was bought last summer, and meet of the work haa been
beyond the point then reached and
has proven ft an immensely profitable Investment to the owner, H. M.
Foster of England. The work is being carried on under the superin-
tendeney of H. B. Alexander with
Dan McDonald, mine foreman.

SANDON. B. C, JUNE 12, 1897.
The English House of Lords has
recently considered and given judgment,   in a case that may  affect
Canadian companies more   nearly
than many of us are inclined to imagine.   It concerned  the  issue  of
shares at a discount   The Railway
Times Tables' Publishing Company
became hard up for funds, and  it
issued shares to the stock-holders in
thc company at a discount, tbat plan
having been followed apparently as
an inducement to the stockholders to
take   them  up.   Then,   it was  a
question as to the liability of the
stockholders to pay them up in full.
It .has been previously held in thc
case of the Ooregum Gold   Mining
Company, that the holders of shares
issued at a discount, were liable to
lie called upon to pay op in full, if
necessary,   for the  purpose of discharging the debts ofthe company
due to outside creditors,  and the
costs ot liquidation: but tbe House of
Loids has carried the matter a step
further by deciding, by a majority
of five to one, that the holders ot discount shares must also be called upon
to pay up in full, even after the debts
and costs have been satisfied, so tbat
the rights and obligations of thc con
tributaries inter se may be adjusted.
The decision, ot coarse, settles the
question once for all, and (bough it Is
extremely  bard  upon shareholders
who,, as In the company in question,
have risked  their capital  in   tbe
forlorn hope of rescuing an unsuccessful venture, and giving it a chance
to retrieve its fortunes, the law being
what it is, there is no alternative but
to obey it. 	
Business both in Canada and the
United States has, tor a long time,
been like a huge locomotive, standing with its driving rod on the
centre. Political uncertainties have
hce.i the main cause of the lack of
sufficient business steam to move thc
machinery. Now that this difficulty
has disappeared, there should be an
industrial revival or. both sides of the
line. This is a young and sturdy
country and can stand a good deal,
even a policy on the part of thc
United States of nonintercourse will
not kill us nor drive us into annexation. We do not wish to injure the
United States, bat should they persist
in their present trade policy towards
Canada, it may prove to be a boom-1
ferential Tariff is now played, and
our clever Yankee neighbors may
wake up one tine day and find that
it is but the lead for tho Imperial
Federation Customs Union card, that
will compel them either to raise less
bread stuffs or consume more in their
own country of what they do raise-
owing to inability to sell it in British
They are cutting thc lead on the

Men wbo have mined from Mexico
to Bi itish Columbia say that the Silver
Cup is a world beater, and it is doubtful if any mine on the continent can

Elmo. At the point where they cut
the lead the ore body is 80 feet wide.
All the St. Elmo needs to make it a

Tower, Minn.--Still the rush to the
Rainy lake and Ontario gold fields
continues and the management of the
various steamers on this route are
nightly besieged by gold seekers, im
plo-ring   them    to   abandon   .heir
schedules and make extra trips and
earlier starts.   This morning's boats
were  loaded  with passengers   and
freight is now a secr.idary consideration as every available space on the
steamers is taken by passengers and
baggage.   A party consisting of ex-
SheriffW. W. Butchart, E. Falconer,
J. Campbell and 1\ McCoy, of Duluth,
and E. Randolph, half owner ot the
Randolph prospect,  were passengers
this morning.   Butchart is president
ot the A. D. Two Gold Mining company, on which development will bo
vigorously   prosecuted   during the
summer.   This property shows five
large veins, all with visible gold free
and assays run high.   A stamp mill
is in construction at Duluth which
will be in operation next month.   As
soon as  the   party   arrive  twenty
miners will be  put  to work.   The
owners have refused a cash offer ot
$40,000 for this property and are confident tbat they have a very valuable
property.   Mes_rs. Randolph and McCoy go to take personal supervisun of
their working properties.   A noticeable feature ot recent migration is the
women and children who are accom
panying their husbands to thc numerous inining camps.
Considerable excitement prevails
here over the alleged discovery of
gold not far from this city. A Frenchman for the past year in the employ
ofthe Tower logging railway, last
evening came in from a prospecting
tour bringing with him several large
samples of quartz and quite a good-
sized nugget The gold is very
prominent in the quartz, at.d he
claims the find was made within a
very few miles of Tower. C. C
Oppel and George Schummehl were
tortunate enough to get control ot the
samples of ore and Mr. Schummell at
once started for Duluth to nave an
assay made. The finder has no
means to properly develop with and
it is more than probable that he will
finally confide in and accent the financial assistance ot Messrs, Oppel and
Schumraegl, and when the location
becomes known there will be a rush
for adjoining properties. Many evi.
donees of gold have been previously
tound in his immediate vicinity, but
never any showing so well.
Sam Heller, of the Heller Liquor
company, of Duluth, came from the
north last evening and reports the
discovery hy himself and others of
mica on the shores of .Lake Le Croix.
It was noticed by out croppings on
ttic Iwtnk. Work of minor developments was at once commenced and
after two blasts were shot a ffne de
posit was disclosed. Mr. Heller says
the deposit is of great extent and that
specimens taken after blasting
measured nearly a foot square, and
while retaining its clearness the
quality was a decided improvement
over the outcroppings and that the
deposit warrants extensive operations,
which will be made.
When the Sheriff went over from
���Golden Hill to Lucky Valley alter
Jim Sanders,  who was wanted for
shouting Daii Williams in a quarrel
over a game of anil*-, lit* didn't even
take a gun along. He found his
man in a saloon and asked him to
step up antl have a drink. Jim complied, but kept a hand on his gun.
when thev had drunk they sat down,
and thc 'Sheriff told three or tour
funny stories. By and by the puzzled
Jim broke out with : ���
"See vcre, .Ita?, did you come over
after me?"
"Well, I thought you might want
to jog along back with mo," wai the
"Not much! I'll never be taken
���Then that settles it. U*ss ht-v another drink."
They drink again, and the official
told a very funny story about a tei ���
derfbot's experience in (Jolden CUy.
Jim laughed as loudly as the others,
but psesently grew serious and said :
"Say, Joe, ye can't Like me -dive!"
"Wall, we w,nt worry about that,
Jim,"' was the only reply. "IjC.'s hev
another nip and then a game of
The. game lasted until the Sheriff
had lost about $20. Then he ordered
drinks and saifg a song. When the
song was finished he said to Santas j
'���Jim heven't I made things pleasant fur you to day ?"
���'You hev, Joe* aud no mistake.'*
"Treated vou like a gentleman,
heven't I ?"
"Youcertainly hev."
"That's ray way of doin' things.
Now I want you to treat me like a
gentleman. Go back to (Jolden City
with me."
"But I'shot Dan Williams over
"And they want to hang me.*'
'Of course thev do, but that'* nuth
in' to me. I didn't make the laws. I
was sent out arter you, and I want to
take you back, i could hev tweaked
In and got the drop on ye, but I know
ed 'twould hurt yer pride. Heven'f
I bin tender with ye, Jim?"
"You hev, Joe, but I don't want to
be hung."
"I'pose now but see how nice I've
used ye. Would anv other Shet itT
hev done it T
"No, I reckon not."
"Of course not And if you are
hung, wont I boss the job and nuke
it as easy as possible? Just come
right along to obleege me, Jim."
"\�� ould it be a great favor to vou T
"It would, and it would show ate
that you was a gentleman, to boot.
I'm a gentleman myself, and I kin
appreciate a gentleman.*'
"Wall, Joe, said Jim. after a moments thought, "1 did say I wouldn't
go, and I did think I didn't want to
be hung, but to obleege you and to
show these critters that I know whit
good manners is, I'll go along with ye.
And ten days later Mr. Sanders attended a necktie social, and was left
behind when the others started for
home.���Arizona Kicker.
What She Wanted
She entered the drug store in a
most dignified way, and looked very
impressive. The clerks made a rush
to attend so important a customer.
A chair was given her, and she
settled down comfortably. Ixx-king
round she smiled sweetly on the
nearest joungman���"May I see your
directory, please?" she said.

F. P. O'Neill and James C. Cunningham of Spokane were ii. Sandon and paid a visit to the Kuth, of
which Mr. O'Neill was one of the locators. The gentlemen are interested in the Pinacle, near the Alpha.
The Payne mine commenced shipping last Mondav, and will lie from
now on a steady shipper of three
cars a day. The survey for the
tramway is completed and the company are considering what system
to use.
The work recently done on the
Annie, on McUuigan creek, and
owned by W. D. Thompson and
Dr. Gonim, shows that property
much improved. The ledge is
broadened out and galena has been
encountered in small quantities.
The Highland at Ainsworth, on
which extensive work has been
done, have just discovered that in
blocking out the ore in the lead they
have been throwing rock over the
dump that carries at least 17 in gold
and has assayed as high as fti4.
Dr. Goinm, P. Perew and K.Waite
left last Monday for the Lillooet district on a prospecting tour. They
will be gone between two and three
months, and expect to explore much
of the country north of Lillooet.
They are bound to fetch back something if it is nothing more than a
si wash.
The Cumberland group of five
claims, either on the Idaho ledge or
one parallel to the Idaho, and the
Yakima jjrroup of four claims, in the
next basin east of the Alamo, and
owned by the Sunshine Mining company, have been sold. Both groups
were owned by Detroit, Mich., people.
D. C. Clark, one of the locators of
the Ruth, is here and will open up
the Ophir on Eureka hill at once.
TheOphir is supposed to be on the
Kuth lead. He will also do assessment on tbe Dominion, above the
Slocan Star, and survey the Dorothy on Tributary creek for a crown
grant. Mr. Clark, with A. A. Ut-
Icy, have formed the Salmon River
Lumber company, at Salmo, B. C.
James F. Leahy of Findlay, Ohio,
representing a syndicate of 'capitalists of Ohio, and D. A. Van Dorn of
New Denver, arrived in Sandon on
Tuesday and immediately proceeded
to Cody to push development work
on the Bolander and Shoshone
claims. Mr. Leahy savs the Bolander is looking very good, and will
probably be a shipper before long.
Local Newa.
W. Bmallcy, from Collingwood,
Ont., has started a barber shop at
Cody, next to, the Noble Five hotel.
Bob Hammond, Ed Spahr and
8cott Donnelly, on a wager last

Fletcher's Jimmy. The backers of
Jimmy are very anxious to have the
race take place.
The Sandon dairy is now furnishing with milk and cream Three
