The monthly meeting of the fire
department occurs next Tuesday
There should lie a large attendance,
as the demand is imperative that
steps should be taken immediately to
bring the department up to a much
I tetter standard than now prevails.
The lack of interest displayed ��� by
our people in a matter of such vital
importance is a subject of dally comment. There seems to be a feeling
that it is a matter of chance anyway, and that it is aa well to leave
it to Providence and hope for a favorable outcome. Whereas, with
very little effort by each of our citizen's, the department could be made
so efficient that there would be no
danger except under unusual circumstances. As every one known,
the whole danger of fire is at the beginning, and quick action then is
worth everything. This is only acquired by' practice and drill, and
Chief Hwitzer has had a hard time
in getting the members out even for
that. The chief is a thorough fireman, and if given the proper support will make the fire brigade equal
to any emergency.

Extent   and   Richness  of This
tireat District.
What mav la- called the Sandon
Mils a well defined aaaa, extending fix��m-8i|verton on Wacaa lake to
WhitewaW creek, on a straight line
running through Sandon about 15
miles long, and from three to five
miles wide, running from southwest
to northeast. The formation is lime
ami slate, with occasional intrusion
of porphyry dykes. The mineral is
mostly galena with some carbonatos.
Outside this belt, on either side, the
formation ami ore is of a distinctly
different character.
In this belt are situated the rich
silver deposits which have made Slocan famous, and silver mining as
attractive as the gold placers of the
paat. What the output of mineral
tnthe future will l*e is only a matter
of speculation, but that it will be the
greatest for the same amount of territory in thc world's history Is believed bv many who are competent
to judge. Already from one end to
the other are fuliy developed mines
that are paying princely mvidends
to their owners, and but a very
small part of the claims located have
been developed, although the indications warrant the belief that they
are just as good as any that arc now
shipping regularly.

I A BIG DEAL.
Enterprise Group on Ten Mile

D. K. C. Brown and Dave Brun-

so tar:
The ledge, though small, has been
traced through the two claims and
strikes northeast and southwest between granite walls. The ore is galena with much zinc blende in a
quartz ganguc, and is generally
found on the footwall. Four tunnels
have been driven on the ledge, leaving the ore on the side, The lowest,
i*di) feet, opens a chute averaging
seven inches and continuous for 4CU
feet. The second tunnel, 170 feet
higher, is in 50J feet with ore for 300
feet, where an upraise to the surface
follows over eight inches of ore for
���SO feet. At 330 feet a fault was
struck, but the ledge has heeii picked
up beyond it and carries ore fbr 150
feet further, eight to eighteen inches
wide, which is being Moped. Tht*
third tunnel, 25 feet higher, is 310
feet long, and follow* six to twelve
inches of ore for 2tX) feet. The fourth
tunnel, 403 feet, is UO feet higher and
is in six to fourteen inches of solid
ore. These tunnels have thus traced
a continuous ore chute for 1000 feet
along the ledge. Shipment* have
returned from 153.7 to 179.5 ounces
silver and 18 to 30 per cent, lead,
nnd now average 250 ton* a month.
Shipments to tlate awn-gate 26 carloads, averaging *n,W to ���2000 a
car net.

A stranger appeared in Sandon

by the authorities that there were
two trains out of Sandon on the next

Crowds Going to the Lake ofthe Wood*
Dlatrlet.
iia *ar*-**i
Rat Portage, Ont.���Navigation is
now open on all the inland lakes in
Western Ontario, especially the Lake
of the Woods, and an increased activity in mining matters is looked Tor.
For nearly six Weeks the trails have
been heavy and the ice dangerous tor
travel, especially for teams and
freight. As a result much develop,
ment work has been temporarily suspended and mine owners and seekers
alter properties  have   not been so
much in evidence. Miners for development work are in demand. Each
outgoing boat takes all tbe passengers it can cairy and freight that has
been in warehouses and in docks tor
many weeks. Each train also brings
in carloads of freight and machinery
and all classes are watching and hoping for the advent of numerous capitalists and investors.
Local mining men are jubilant over
the repeal ofthe law imposing a tariff
of33. per cent, on all mining machinery. This not only admits all
mining machinery free of duty but all
materials used in its manufacture.
Canadian machinery is admittedly inferior to American and tbe manufacturers on this side ofthe line will have
to meet competition in price and quality or retire from the field. As a result, a great roar is going up and
great efforts are being made to induce
parliament to rescind that action.
The best mining men and engineers
mi Canada have fought for the repeal
of that duty for years and will use
every influence now to see that it
stays repealed. This will be a boon
to American manufactures and for
mining development here.
Mining brokers report things quiet
just now. The season has hardly
opened and they expect a greater
activity later. A gooa many inquiries are being received, however.
The latest reports from London are
that the interest is greatly on the increase there. Six or seven very
strong English syndicates are in here
already and more are coming. The
company represented by Col. Engle-
due lost heavily in South Africa and
he says that every dollar lost there
will lie regained in Ontario.
The most important and significant
deal of late is the purchase of a one-
eighth interest in La Mascotte mine
by Sir Roderick Cameron of R W.
Cameron & Co., New York, for $11,-
000. He also purchased seven other
valuable properties and is expected
to increase his holdings from time to
time. Only a very few months ago,
Sir Roderick was offered the entire La
Mascotte property tor $10,000, but he
declined It The property was discovered last August by Geo. Girard,
a prospector, for the Corondo Mining
company. Later it was sold to the
Oolcleugh Mining company, lo dav
a shaft is down tliirtv five feet with a
90 loot tunnel. The property embraces 45 acres and ii 50 miles from
Rat Portage oa Whitefish bay. The
ore is a sugar quartz and free gold is
visible to the naked eye in large
quantities. Assays have run ail the
way trom $2150 to $2,200 a ton.
Work has commenced at Keewatin
at the old Dick A Banning  water
power for the erection ot a 50-stanip
reduction works.   The Ottawa Gold
Milling and Reduction Works company is back of the enterprise and it
is expected to be ready tor operation
the first of next August.   George E.
Foster, late dominion finance minister,
is one of the promoters.   This is to be
a custom mill and the company will
at once construct barges and tugs with
which to collect and convey ore from
mines to works ai.d to carry supplies
back to the mines on the barges.   It
is estimated that ore can be carried
tor 50c to 60c a ton.   A number of
mining companies already have taken
stock in tbe enterprise.    With ihe
completion of the locks, at Fort Frances
which is hoped for, ore could also Ih*
brought from the Seine river mines.
Mine owners without capital for rapid
development and stamp mill machinery claim that now they will be able
to secure enough bullion as they develop to more than pay all expenses.
The members of the mining exchange are exciting Herculean efforts
to make the mining convention set for
June 2. 3 and 4 a great success. Numerous responses are being received
and a large attendance is expected.
Papers will be read and discussed.
Samples ot ore from all the mines exhibited, ore crushed and panned before the eym ot all and free excor
sions given to some of the most rich
and interesting properties in this district. All principal railroad lines have
offered a rate or one fare for the round
trip, tickets good forgone month with
stopover priviliges.     A  round-trip
rate from Duluth to Fort Frances via
Port Arthur and Rat Portage, including berths and meals on Lake 8u*>cr-
ior and Lake of the Woods honts- has
been fixed at $30.
New  Town.
The newest tov-fn in Koottnay is
Craigtown, formerly knows ss Craig's
camp. It is situated on the North
Fork of Salmon river, about six miles
from the Nelson A Fort Bheppard
railway. The town is in the centre
ofa rich mineral district and promi^s
to become a place of considerable Importance. An hotel and several busl
ness houses are now being erected
there.
At present thc settlement lacks
roadways and trails, but a petition
with over 400 signatures has been tor-
warded to the government at Victoria
asking tbe construciiun of a govern
ment wagon road from the railway
track to a distance of nine miles ui>
the North Fork. *
This summer manv mineral claims
in the vicinity ot Craigtown will be
extensively develoj-ed.   Several pro
perties   were   worked  continuous! v
during tho winter.

|R***t.��i. aud are now added to the groun.l. making
seven claims in all. Four of then, tht* l*n*p**ctor.
Little Flo, Victoria and Handy, are under bond
to J. C. Tanner, of Spokane, Uie tirst payment of
kVihi for each claim being due on Uie -fihid Inst.
The lexlges which traverse these claim* are Immense, one being iu feet wide and tlie other M

but tlie smaller one carries 7 per cent copper, rt
iu gold and t ounce*, silver at surface.
The Rossland Stock Exchange has been cl.rsed.
The malcontents were headed by C. O'Brien Madia . who was one of a committee of three, which
went to Spokane to ask the Spokanites to close
their exchange in accordance with a telegram
sent bv the president and bm rctary of the Spo
kanc Exchange to the effect that if tlie Russland
brokers would discontinue their exchange *.!��>
kaue would do likewise. But when Mr Redd In
and his companions reached Spokane the members of that exchange refused to stand by their
offer. So the followers of Mr. Reddin in the
ItVtssland exchange have been nicely fooled.
However, the minority section of the late exchange, of whom Ernest Kennedy and F. w.
Bull arc the chief exponents, have decided to in
a in* urate another exchange, aud to permit the
a.lmlsxi >n of the general public.
The lx�� Rol smelter agitation is verv much to
the front here now. and many prominent men. as
well as two of the newspapers, are   threatening
the advocacy of an export duty on ore, should
tht! company decided on building tlieir mil Iter at
N.irtlii��rt. "Some of the American miiie-owncrs
laugh at this, and ask where Britl-di Columbia
would sell her matte, if the United States did not

where does the I niteil States sell tbe matte she
l>ruiin-es'/   England buys nearly all that is ex-

I'nited States refuses to take our *>u��i>ut.   We
ran send our matte and bullion where they send
theirs, and get a better price than they ever did
