SAM AND CODY Derate 12,1896.
A Description of the Nobis Fivs.
of the Bigaest Things in
the Country
Holding its own through all the
lluctuatious of flni silver market
and maintaining its place as
second to none among the great
silver mines of the Slocan, is the
Noble Five mine. Discovered in
U| when tbe Slocan was known
hut locally, this proposition has
paid richly the industry of its
owners. Although the bulk of
the work done has been iu the
course of development, still, some
���J .000 tons of ore has been sent to
the smelter which netted the com-
piny, roughly speaking. 1180,000.
The first shipment of ore. which
was sent out by way of Kaslo cost
them $VI5 per ton for transportation and treatment so thai some
idea of the value of the ore can be
gathered when, with all these disadvantages, the property still
gave good returns.
During the past summer, with
a force of only six men, $0,700
���vnrili uLore was taken out iu six
week's time.
The greater part of the ore already mined has he��*ll taken  from
No.  4  and  No.  ���*>  levels.    No.  4
level i�� in about 4i.*> feet and is in
ope for the entire distance, and on
chipping off pieces from the  sides
of the tunnel, the galena is seen
glistening,   in   the   light   of   the
candle, from  the  fracture.    Near
the entrance t.�� this level   a  short
crosscut was driven and  when the
walls   were  reached   it   gave  the
lead a width of some 14 feet, with
ore showing for every inch  of the
distance   across.       The  men   are
busily   engaged   now    (hiving   a
raise to connect with N>��. 3  level,
tins level, which is'in  *ome  :t7i>
feet, is also in ore.  and   in   it, like
the   level     below,    the    ore   has
been taken  out  for  about   :���   feet
only   4he   width   of   the   tunnel.
The work of sinking  to  meet the
raise Croat,   No*   4   is  progressing
rapidly and   in   a   very   few days
the conned ion will be made, wheu
j'ommunication   will   be complete
fwtween this level and No. <��.    No.
<> level, which is in about 3Q0 feet
is connected by three winzes   with
the workings above, and when No.
7 and S tunnels are in  a sufficient
distance the work  of completing
the   connection    by   raising ami
sinking will be  commence 1.    No.
7 and No. S levels have only been
started in the but two months ami
are in ftO ami ill feet"WrH***wly.
In No. 7 tunuel evidences of the
lead are already  showing up but
they do not expect to strike  it  in
place short of 40 feet more.   No.
X will have to be driven for about
50 feet more before the  vein   will
be encountered, and it is through
this tunnel, which is at the head
of the tramway line, that the ore
mined in the upper levels, will be
taken. This tunnel, which is
about 5A by 74 on the clear, is a
model piece of workmanship, and
when completed it, will be one of
the finest timbered tunnels in the
country. It is expected that in
the next two months all the upper
workings will be connected by
chutes with this tunuel. The
most of the ore taken out is being
piled on the dumps and when the
tramway and concentrator is completed, which will be about the
middle of next mouth, it will he
sent to the mill for treatment.
When No. 8 tunuel reaches the
lead this vein will have been
proved to a depth of l,i)00 feet
from tbe surface. This level when
it reaches the center of the hill,
a distance of 2300 feet, and which
will place it directly beneath the
upper workings, its extremity will
be 2..*��'K) feet beneath   the  surface.
Vp to the present time no stop-
ing has been done if the ore
taken out iu driving the different
winzes be excepted, ami it is the
intention  of the  owners  to  d>, a
lion for the men are, at present, a
little cramped but it is the Intention ol the owners to build larger
and more commodious quarters at
an early date.
That the Noble Five  is a  very
big thing indeed, no one who  has
ever seen it,   will   deny.    Heretofore so very little had  been   written   about   this  proposition  thatj|
the facts and figures given  in the*,'
above description   will  come as a?
revelation to the  majority of tbe
people both here and elsewhere, of
at least one thing' we can   be eer
tain and   that   is that  the   Noble
Five is one of the most  extensively developed   propositions   in   the
Slocan country today.

extensive stoping operations. To
give an estimate of the uimmnt of
ore now in sight, anyway near the
thing, it would be impossible, but
it will be pretty safe to say that
it will amount away up iu the
millions. The ore which has been
and is being mined is a mixture of
cbau an 1 concentrating ore the
latter predominating in point of
quantity. Tne assays ou the clean
ore averages 200 ounces in silver
to the ton and from 60 to 70 per
cent, lead and that of the concentrates 100 ounces' to the ton.
At the entrance of No. 8 level
Urn -aoik of |reeling the oie bins,
and landing for the buckets is being rapidly pushed along. The
work here has assumed enormous
proportions, cribwork 100 feet
long by (JO feet high had to be
constructed in order to get a foundation for the ore bins and station
and it is now almost completed.
The towers on which the wires
used for the passage of the buckets
will rest are all up and the work
of putting the cable in place will
commence in the course of a few
days, by the time this work is
completed, the orehouses at the
mine and the coucentralor at the
foot of the hill will be finished,
then all that will he necessary is
to load up the buckets, start them
goinp and one more mill will be
turning tut its rich products u*
add to the wealth of the country
aud the fame of the silvery Slocan.
Some fifty men obtain employment on this property the majority of whom arc employed in the
mine.    The Bleeping accomnioda-

and doors which he will dispose of

Dated this tilth day of December, 1896.
Last evening a number -of the
citizens of Sandon met in J. M.
Harris's office; for the purpose oi
forming a curling club. After a
little pi^Bminary talk M. L.Grini-
uietf'|p|f'voted to the chair, with
' A$T>T��alIows as secretary.    Mr.
rimmctt in a few words stated
object of the meeting and
ed for a motion to decide by
What name the club should be
Known in the future and. how
much the initial fee should amount
to. It was moved and carried that
a curling club be formed and
known as the Sandon Curling
Club with an initial fee of $10.00.
[t was moved and carried that a
president, vice-president, secretary-treasurer and three of a
committee be formed to look after
the management of the club's
affairs, and the following gentlemen were nominated and elected:
President, M. L. Grimmett; Vice-
President. E. R. Athertun: Secretary and Treasurer, W. W. Fallows; Committee. Win. Hood, H.
M. Martin and Hugh Mann.
It was moved and carried that
this club affiliate with the Manitoba Braifeli, IV? fcf^^te*w*****^����^*
and I. Pitblado. o/ Winnipeg,
being ci.osen to look after the
clubs interests at the executive
council of the Manitoba Northwest Association.

(Tp, up. the hill, higher, higher,
went the Kooteuaian on Friday
last, with about a yard of ax-
hand le sticking out from underneath his coat, it was at first
thought that the paystreak ot
the Kooteuaian had pinched out
and its editor had taken the contract of chopping wood, but that
theory was found to be erroneous
and after much fruitiest speculation,
the most reasonable solution of tiro
question was at length arrived at.
The Kooteuaian had taken up a
ranch and intended to set a man
to work in the spring blasting
holes for to sow potatoes in with
which to feed the Irish
contingent on the editorial staff ot
his great weekly. A few of the
Kaslo citizens might he planted

the air in circulation iu aud about
Sandon. Then if you yearn for a
lot from which you can obtain a
magnificent view of the backyards
and housetops of Sandon, why

The Hon. A. G  Blsir, M   P., and Col.
���    Domville, M- P., arrived in Sandon
-The Crow's Nasi Psss R'y-
A large number of our citizens
met in Spencer's hall on Tuesday
evening last to greet the Hon. A.
(t. Blair, M. P., minister of railways: aud Colonel Domville, Mr
P., who are making a tour of inspection through Southern Koot
en ay. It is very cheering to ti'/te
the interest the Dominion Gov
eminent is taking in the mineral
development of IJ. C. and the fact
that one of the Cabinet Ministers
has honored the Slocan with his
presence in order personally to
inspect our resources aud note
the requirements I hat are necessary to the further development of
the mining industry in our country leads us to believe that our
fKMMKSy pressing -wants will receive
ample attention at an  early  date.
The Hon. gentleman in company
with Colonel Domville and some
of our prominent citizens paid a
visit of inspection to the Slocan
Star and Ruth mines, and it is
safe to shv that the sight of the
mineral riches of these two great
properties will do more to fuither
legislation to our hem-fit than
thousands of arguments no matter
how self-evident and convincing
they were. We stated that we
had immense mineral wealth and
we clinched the assertion by show-
ing it to thehi and when an assertion is backed up by proof it cannot fail to have its effect. It is a
great pity he could not have seen
more of our great producers but
we can rest assured that the
quality of the samples he has seen
will not detract from the importance of this great silver camp.
The following is a reproduction
of the address which our citizens
presented to the visiting gentlemen:
The   Hon.  A.  (i.  Blair.   M.   P.,
Minister   of   Railways    and
Canals   and     Lieutenant -Colonel I) nuvillc. M. P.
^     The   umlersigived   ou   behalf  of
the citizens of the town of Sandon
and vicinity take groat pleasure in
extending  to you   a  hearty   we!,
come to the center of the  famous
Slocan   mining   district   of West
The town of Sandon^tTQT^s a
striking example of the rapidity
with which the towns of West
Kootenay have sprung into existence and obtained positions of
great importance. Scarcely h year
ago the site now occupied by our
thriving town was a wilderness.
Today the town has a population
of over 1.500 and the same is
rapidly increasing. The cause of
this wonderful growl!: is the close
proximity to the town of some of
the richest silver mines in America, several of which we hope you
may find it convenient to visit.
At the present time there are
within a radius of three miles of
Sandon not less than forty mines
from which ore is being shipped,
aud the number is being steadily
augnienteo". It is safe to say that
in mr country in the world is
there such a large number of producing mines within a similar
area. While a large number of
mines are being operated at a
profit under the present condition of transportation, the number
otsuch mines would be largely increased were the transportation
facilitiesso improved thatsnielters
could be successfully operated in
the vicinity of the mines. This is
now almost impossible owing to
tlie present cost of coal and Coke,
We are of the opinion thet the
construction of a railway through
the Crow's Nest Pass would provide us with the fuel and transportation facilities of which-we are
so much in need.
But profiting by experience we
would urge that should the (iov-
crnmciit aid in the construction of
such a railway, effective control
should be maintained hy the Government over all rates aud no
monopoly of any kind should he
given or made possible.
We are of the opinion that it
would be in the best interests ol
the Province of B. C. as a whole
that mining machinery should be
admitted free of duty.
We are pleased to note the interest which the Government of
Canada is now taking in this pro
viuce and in it* mining industry*
as evidenced by your presence in'
our midst today. We desire to
express our deep and loyal attachment to the Dominion of Canada
and to the British Empire of
which it forms such an important
part: and wejoiu with the citizens
of our sister towns in praying
that Her Majesty the Queen may
long live to reign over us.

Iu answer the Hon. gentleman
said that the evidences of activity
and progress in mining throughout the sections he had visiter!
had filled him with surprise. No
man would dare   to  predict   what
ure of pur future prosperity aud
advancement. The progress that
has been made in the development
of our mineral resources in the
last few years has been marvelous,
and with the government fully
alive to the importance of that
branch of industry our progress
along the lines of individual
affluence and national importance
would be sure and rapid. He
said it was hard to believe that iu
the immediate neighborhood of
Sandon forty mines were sending
their product to the smelter, but
if such were the case, aud he had
no reason to doubt it, this section
of the Slocan, could be placed,
without exaggeration, at the very
head of the great mining camps of
the world.
After speaking at some  length
on our mining and commercial
prosperity he arrived at the
leading questio.i of the evening,
aud one that is of the first importance to all whose interests are
bound up in the mineral development of the Kootenay the building or the
CROW's  NKST  I'ASS railway.
In reference to this question he
said the government was fully
alive to the importance of this
branch of railway as a factor iu
the future development of tlte
Province ami bis presence here
was \\\w solely to the fact, that he
w��. d to see and judge for himself to what extent the mineral
wealth of the Kootenay had been
exploited. That the value of the
mining interests ami the importance of the Crow's Nest Pass railway as a factor in their develop
ment had not been exaggerated he
was uow convinced, and we could
rely on the government taking
immediate steps either to construct the. branch themselves or
give the assistance necessary to
enable a private Company to hriYijj
the work to a successful termination, dust how or by whom the
road would be built, he could not
say, but iu answer to the question
whether the government woiil 1,
iu case the work of construction
was turned over to a private corporation, exercise a supervision
over the freight tariff in order to
orevent the imposing of exorbitant freight rates, which would
tend to neutralise the good effects
which would result from the building of the railway, he said that it
was bis opinion, and he thought,
the opinion of the other members
of the government, that if the
government advanced the money
for the construction  of the  road,
interests of tbe public which they
represented, exercise such coutrol
over the imposition of the freight
tariff, as to preclude the possibility of the company, operating the
road, from killing the industry
which the construction of the
road was meant to foster, by imposing freight rates that are an
utter impossibility.
In conclusion the Hon. gentleman said that it was not we alone
that are interested in the develop-
ment of the Province but the provinces east of the Rockies also,
from the fact that it is from thence
that the machinery and supplies
necessary in the mining aud milling of the various ores, will be obtained and it is to their interests
to see that the trade intercourse
between we of the west and they
of the east is not diverted from its
natural course by the greediness
and grab-all policy of a corporation, whose loyalty ends when the
national purse strings are drawn

It is provided by the laws of Me**
tana that the secretary ot state shall
charge for receiving and tiling each
eerti.'^ate of incorporation, the sum of
60 eenic on each thousand dollars
ot the capital stock of the company.
This had a very chilly effect on the
promoters of million dollar companies,
torthe reason that fit would tike a
|6(X) bill to pay the incorporation fee
ot a company with a capital stock ot
one million dollars. Hut the promoter
found a way to defeat the intent and
spirit of the law, and it may be interesting to note the mode of procedure.
To begin with, he would organize a
company with a capital stock of say
three thousand dollars, a id in this
ease the fee to be paid the secretary
ot state would be fci.50. A few days
following the board ot directors of the
company is called together, and by
resolution the capital stock is increased to one .million.. A certificate to
this effect is filed in tbe office of the
secretary of state, for which a fee ol
$10 is paid, and henceforth the capital stock of the company is increased
to oue million dollars. The expense
to the incorporators isSll.oJ iiisteady
ot 9500 as contemplated by the stat
ue. The law has become a dead
letter, and will no doubt be repealed
and the old one charging a fee of $15,
fur tiling the papers of any incorporation be put into effect once again.

A. 6. Blair of Ottawa, Canadian
minister ot railways and canals, pa?
sed through this citv yesterday on
his way to British Columbia, where
he will make a thorough investigation
of the proposed new railway lines
tapping the rich yold fields and coal
mountains of southern British Columbia. Mr. Blair was accompanied by
L II. Da vies, minister ot fisheries
and marine, and by Colonel James
Domville, M. P , of St. Johns. The
two last named are on the way to attend the sitting of the Behrihg sea
commission now in progress at Van
Mr. Blair while here unfolded some
of the details of the proposed railway
scheme,which promises to revolutionize the smelting industry of the west,
as well as to open the new gold tikis
to railway couiiuuuictiiion with the
outside world. The railway is to be
built by private parties, but a large
subsidy is expected from the Canadian government, and the fate ot the
enterprise depends upon Mr. Blair's
report In outlining the plans Mr.
Blair said:
"The proposition is to construe: a
line of railway from Lethbridge
through the province of Alberta to
the east ot the Rocky Mountain?.
Lethbridge is connected with the
Canadian Pacific railway by a
branch. The road from Lethbridge
to McLeod will pass through the
famous Crows' Nest Pass, one of the
most desirable passes to be found in
the Rockies north of the boundary.
From McLeod.it will proceed to Nelson and Rowland in the heart of the
rich mining and coal regions. The
line will be about 300 miles long.
"A number of branches will lie
built, running into the various mining
enterprises. A further extension of
the trunk line will also follow in the
near future, as there are plans tor
connecting with Revelstoke, a point
in northern British Columbia on the
Canadian Pacific road, by means of
the waterways. The undertaking
involves the expenditure of about
Mr. Bla'r e peaks enthusiastically
of the opening of the vast coal fields
ot the Columbia region. The construction ot the line, he says, means a
revolution in the great smelting
works of the western states, which
now obtain1 coal from New South
Wales at a cost of something like
114 a ton. The new railroad would
put the big smelters of Butte, Spokane
and other western cities in direct connection with 250.0J0 acres of the
richest coal lands in the world, and
cannot fail to produce a remarkable
change in all mining operations in
the west, developing fields rich in ore
which have lain idle on account of
the high price of coal
The construct ion ot the line through
Crows' Nest pass will save about 50
miles. It will also do away with
steep grades and enable the Canadian
Pacific to climb to the summit of the
Rocky mountains through the lowest
ptss yet discovered. Its elevation is
less than 5000 teet. The Iqwest pass
hitherto known in the northwest is
the Mapais jwsh, used by the Oreat
Northern line. Crows' Nest jwss was
not discovered until later, and it has
been the intention ot the Canadian
Pacific, ever since the dtscovery.ulti
inateiy to use it. The pass lies close
to the International  boundary line.
The proposed railway will pass near
the famous coal juountain,, a vast
mass of the nenjst bituminous awL!
coking coal. This great deposit of :
coal has been the talk of hunters and
trappers tor twenty-five veins, but
owing to the lack' of ran way communications tiot much attention has
been paid to it.
It is also reported that this section
ot British Columbia is rich in petroleum fields, aud that the Standard
Oil company has already had agents
in the territory making extensive inquiries concerning them.

Dendwood  Mi*Is,
Dead wood, S. D.,���The three reduction plants at Dead wood are now
treating over five hundred tons -of
silicious ore daily, ot an average
value of twenty dollars and upward,
making the monthly product l&OV
000. The output ot these mills now
exceeds that of the Homestake and
associate plants at Lead, and with
their enlarged capacity it is safe to
place the year's output of the Hills at
at least *9,0C0,00J. At the D. & D.
smelter there is now n loss to the ton
of ore of less than fifteen cents' worth
of metal. The Golden Reward plant
is the largest chlorination works in
the United States, and this year added machinery that is absolutely new
to the reduction of gold. A year ago
the three plants had a combined capacity of less than two hundred and
fifty tons daily. All are making ar
rangements for again" doubling their
capacity the comiiii! season, with ore
ir sight to require full running.
The Garden City chlorination
mill has started up, putting new life
in the camp and ores from the Penob
scot, are being treated to lull capac
ity. Many properties have begun
development work. The Kildonan
chloriiitiou mill is now treating 120
tons a day from the Horseshoe group,
averaging verv high in gold.
The Homestake companv has de
clared another dividend of 131,50),
making eleven for the year, and
six million one hundred thousand
dollars to date.
A cave has been discovered in the
Dacy at Ragged Top that contains
several seams and an exposed chute
ot high grade ore, running as high
as 1300 per ton. For several da\>
the miners had been losing drills
and supposed their was a crevice,
till one night the men broke through
into a cave nine feet wide, sixteen
feet high, sitxty feet long, and spai ���
gied with minera', sparkling and
glittering in the lignt like diamonds.
The camp is shipping weekly 100
tons of ore averaging sixty dollars.
Earnest May has bought from Ira
Rouse for $10,000 cash a quarter interest iu twenty claims in Ragged
Top, it being the largest deal ever
made in this new camp. Work is to
1h3 carried on at once to test the
The-Kicking Horse group in Black*
tail divide has struck four ore chutes
that run from twenty to one hundred
and fourteen dollars, and the mine
looks like a bonanza.
Lead���An eastern investor who has
been in the Black Hills tor months
has secured bonds on about two million dollar's worth of proiierties near
to and in this city, when he proposes to form into one great company to
be worked at immense mills to be
erected here. Something like eighteen months ago much excifment was
caused by the discovery here of wins
ot mineral running as high as #UO,
000 in gold, but very narrow and
surrounded by low grade rock In
such a way that the small miner wou d
be throwing away all the low grade
rock to get the richer, and would not
make any 'money. This has resulted
in idleness. It wasuccn that if thev
could be consolidated and mills erected to care for the low grade, the
owners might be millionaires. This
is the present plan. There seems no
reason to doubt that under the flat
formation of rich ore there exists the
vertical, so successfully worked by
the Homestake.
Rapid City���The state school of
mines t.as reached the point where it
must have more room or quit. It has
never been as successful as this year,
and its classes are crowded 'with
students many of them Women,- who
are studying assaying, with a
view to making it their profession.
There are now one-third more students than any previous year, and applications fbr space are comiiur in,
showing the deep interest taken in
mining operations, The school has
bought the old ten -tout Bally smelter
at Galena and will use it in connection with practical work.

The com) any has leased the Florence
mine here and is opening it.
The   Golden  Cache.
This mine which is causing such
widespread notice in all parts ot the
province, and especially at the coast,
is situated a 1 tout ten miles from the
town of Lilljoet on Cayoosh creek.
The ledge is on a side of a precipice
aud is traceable for 2500 to 3)00 feet,
diowing a width of from 12 to 24 feet,
and underlying a slate formation
carrying gold. The ledge is situated
3000 feet above the level of the sea
aud about 1500 feet a hove Cayoosh
creek. The ore shows gold all over
the ledge, and asatvs running a.l the
way from *300 to fc35,OU0 to the ton
have been made. The property-was
p irehased last spring from Joe Cope
land and a couple ot other parties for
the sum of $25,000cash by McKinnon,

going on ever since this company secured the property and have now a

The  Entertainment
The concert giveu in Spen-
cer's Hall under tbe aus.
pices of the Presbyterian Mission of tbe Slocan, on r Tuesday
evening last, was one of tbe most
successful both financially and
with regard to the merits of tbe
participants, ever given in tbe
It was the first time that a  Sandon audience bad the pleasure of
listening to the Misses Bennett in
their   different   roles,     und    the
favorable   impression  tbey  made
on tbe minds of their hearers will
not be soon  effaced.    Miss  Helen
Mar Bennett besides  being  very
versatile has a wouderful  conception of tbe characters she  imper
sonates and her  next   appearance
in our city will be welcomed   with
genuine   pleasure.      Miss    Clara
Bennett lias a  very  sweet  voice,
but her evident  nervousness, pre-
vented her from doing full justice
to herself,  nevertheless her next
appearance    in    Sandon   will   be
warmly welcomed.    Tbe selections
of Chas.   Hammond  and   \Y.   \V.
Fallows    accompanied   by    Miss
Crawford were heartily applauded
by the audience.    On  the whole a
most enjoyable evening was spent,
having but one fault and that was
that it too soon came to an end.
