TRAIL BREWERY IN SANDON
This Great Establishment After
Trade In Thia Thriving District.
Mr. N. A. Burritt, president of the
Kootenay Brewing, Malting A Distilling company, limi-ted* of Trail,
B. C, was in Sandon this week, and
bas established a branch here tosup-
ply tbe trade of Slocan and Kootenay lake districts. The company
will base cold storage for lager
beer and warehouse for wines,
liquors, carbonated drinks and cigars, and will carry on hand at all
times a complete stock of the best
goods. This is the largest brewery
and bottling establishment ia British Columbia, the bailding at Trail
being, next to the Trail smelter, the
htvrgest in Kootenay, the plant costing 9100,000. and baring a capacitv
of 100 barrels of lager beer pep day.
Everything about the plant is of
modern type and is not excelled by
any of tbe big eastern concerns.
They manufacture their own ice
and can ship it in any quantity.
-There is also in connection a bonded
warehouse, both for foreign and native liquors. \u ��� nsiiiaiMWdiliiiii
of the product of their biawuy, Mr.
Burritt states that they now anmlv
HO pep cent, of toe bear used ia aoas-
lead and 100 per cent, in Trail.
Some of the prominent eaVsalB of
the C. P. K. and the pi nl lints of
Ave New York batiks bold the stock
of tlie Ofannany, which is evidence
of th*-wntfdence eastern capitalists
have in the district, and also of the
ability of Mr. Burritt to run a great
establishment like this successfully.
Storehouses have been established in
Slocan C5tv, Nelson and Quartz
Creek. Mr. Ben King will have
charge of the Sandon and Kootenay
lake business, and after meeting
these two gentlemen even the most
weary of life are satisfied to live on
in tlie hope of meeting them again.

WORK ON THE WONDERFUL.
Shipping a Car a Week With
Handsome Net Profit.
The "galena hydraulic," as the
Wonderful group is called, is working a Ml force in the ditches and
gulches and getting out tots of ore.
It is one of the most interesting sights around Sandon to
take the mile and a half walk up the
splendid trail to the Wonderful and
watch the working by hydraulics.
The water is turned on from two
tiuines and allowed to run 24 hours,
with several men with picks loosening the gravel and allowing it to be
carried off. Then the water is
turned into another channel, and
the solid galena chunks are gathered
and taken to the ore house, sacked
and shipped. Fifty thousand dollars worth of ore has already been
shipped from these washings.
E. J. Field, the general manager,
was the originator of the. hydraulic
system, and the returns have well
justified the experiment. Mr. Held
has also got a novel way of packing
the ore down to the railroad. The
horse trail has been widened to allow ofa narrow pair of wheels, and
from the axle of these front wheels
two 12-foot poles run back to a pair
of eight-inch iron wheels, which
keep the poles off the ground and
also serve as a brake. With one
horse a ton of ore is easily carried.
The mine is shipping a car of ore
a week, and the following interesting table has been obtained of the
general manager, showing the expense attached and returns from a
car load. The ore yields 129 ounces
of silver and 72 per* cent, lead to the
ton, and the net profit is a handsome
one:

A Promising Mine Not Par Prom
Sandon.
A representative of this paper visited the Palmeta with Mr. J. K.
Clark, the manager, this week. The
mine is about two and one-half miles
from Sandon on tbe south side of
Carpenter ereek, and is directly opposite and about the same height as
the Payne mine. Adjoining tbe Palmeta to the south and over the ridge
is the Queen Bess, and across the
gulch from the Queen Bess is tbe
Idaho-Alamo. Several short tunnels
have been run this spring exploring
the vein and pay ore has been found
in them all. The main tunnel is
now being put hi, SO feet lower than
the last cut, and t ill reach the ledge
in a few days, whui, from the indications in the upper tunnels, there
will be shipping ore in quantities.
Tie ore is galena and carbonates.

a dog, ''Buck." of whose fighting
ualities be was very proud.    Pat
annon also owns a dog, "Bob,"
that is well known in Three Forks.
Buck weighs 80 pounds, is voting
and powerful. Bob is a 90-pound
dog without a tooth in his head and
nine years old. The dogs met the
other day, and the light was ''pulled
off" with most of the people of the
town acting as referees, timekeepers
and abettors. Tbe one round continued half an hour and the big one
had the other used up, but still
game, when as a last effort Bob
made a snap and Buck left tin* ring.
The light was declared Bob's on a
foul, and Stubbs is hunting another
dog.

DATA   ANENT   GOLD.
The fsct brought out in the report
ol the operations at ths Trcadwell
mine in Alaska that gold ores in
great quantities can be worked at a
profit which do not carry more than
$1.99 to the ton, is suggesting of other
interesting facts in regard to gold
mining. It may be, as held by some
of our political reformers, that gold
in a more advanced condition ol
society will be considered the monev
of the barbarian; but tbat time is
evidently too distant to be taken into
practical account in present-day
speculations. The demand for gold
is greater than ever, as population
is greater and business interests are
more extensive than ever before;
and the demand will increase with
the increase and extension of these.
But the same inscrutable providence
that seems to have designed gold for
monetary use is increasing the supply accordingly. Last month's Consular Report publishes some interest*
ing facts on the subject:
"From a very remote period the
Iberian peninsula has been celebrated
for its mineral wealth. The Phoenicians and, later on the Carthageiiians.
worked the gold and silver mines of
Spain. Hannibal extracted daily
Carthagena a quantity of those metals
equivalent to 6000 pesetas ($1156).
The most renowned of ancient historians mention the riches ot Iberia in
precious metals, and relate that in
the time ot Justinian, gold was found
in the fields worked by tbe plow.
Pliny the younger says that in his
time 2000 pounds of gold were extracted annually from Galicia, Astur-
ias and Portugal. Tbe immense
quantities of this metal drawn trom
Spain restored and replenished
Rome's public treasury. Cato, on
his reftTrn Trom governing Spain,
handed over 18 tons of silver and
nearly 2000 kilograms of gold.
After'tbe fall of the Roman empire,
the mining indastry received no
great impulse from the Moors, and,
finally, the discovery of the new
world was tbe deathblow to the
miners' industry in Spain. In fact,
with the object of favoring tbe American an industiy which was for them
a source of great riches, the kings of
Spain prohibited the working of
mines in the Peninsula. Today,
however, owing to the persistent
efforts of a few prospecting Englishmen and to the progress being made
every year in processes for tlie extraction of refhictory ores, it Is probable that, in a short time, some of tbe
old Roman mines will be worked on
a large scale. The gold is found In
the northwestern part of Galicia,
between the elate and granite formations Tbe ore is an iron pvrite containing a little arsenic.   The lodes
"On the banks of the river Sil,
there are remains of important 'placer
workings,' probably Roman, and
even today a compensative quantity
of gold is washed from tbe deposits in
the banks of the river by the local
peasant women, who stand in the
shallow places and wash the stun
they have collected in 'bateas' (wooden bowls), in the working ol which
they are adepts. The general con
ditions ot mining in this district are
exceptionally good. Timber, labor,
etc., is plentiful and cheap. Large
quantities ot pine props are shipped
annually to Cardiff for the coal mines.
The cost ot labor per day is as follows:
Miners, carpenters, etc., 2.50 pesetas
(48 cents); blacksmiths, 3.50 pesetas
(67 cents); laborers, 1.50 pesetas (28
cents). The country is well watered
and hydraulic power can be obtained
actually on or near to almost all the
mines. The only drawback is the
cost of coal in cases where steam
power would be required and for calcining when chlorination is the only
way of extraction."

KAKK   MINIKO   NNHKK
At this time, when new mines are
being developed, and new mining
companies are being formed. It be*
Ikwvcs tbe piospeetivo investor to
move slowly and cautiously before
placing his money in mining stocks.
It has been the history of mining in
all countries, thai with the legitimate
compsntes doing business with the
public, there have always been Institutions of a take nature, organized
solely for tlie purpose of preying
ti--on the people. A claim that happens to be located in tne neighbor*
liood of a paying mine, although
���rcrhaps worthless itself, forms sufficient basis for a million dolhr stock
company, and the issuance of thou*
sinds of dollars worth ot treasury
-.tuck. This stock will then be sold
at prices tbat renders* the accumulation of a fund large enough to develop
the mine a practical impossibility.
I'm that does not bother the protect*
or*. It has cost little to iiicorporate,
and what thev can raise by tbe sale
of such stock Is pore gain. And it is
such companies that t-rove to be a
u-altive detriment to legitimate min
ing enterr-rises. The inining dtatriets
of tha Northwest lave suffered bv
the deprt-dations of these oily tongued
���**-. unon-K for the man who is taken
in is always active In decrying mines
ami mining stock, of all kinds,
creating to some extent a feeling of
��� li-trust snd apprehension.
Referring to this phase of the min
ing industry, the Seattle Post Intelli-
genear ^wisely comments ss follows:
The wholesale incorporation ot
million dollar companies has been
made the subject ot moch criticism,
ami there is certainly danger of its
being overdone. There is this to be
^id in favor of the practice: That a
prospector cannot show his faith in
ids claim more practically than by
accepting Mock tn payment fbr it;
also, that corporations affords nam*
bam of small Investors an opportunity
to aceropltsh by co-operation what
they would be powerless to perform
"ingly. The aggregation of small
amounts of capital, tionesUy and
skillfully managed, may develop a
PSVtag mine, and frequently has
done to.
On the other hand, there is too
great a tendency to place treasury
"lock on the market at prices so low
that tbey cannot realiite enough
money to develop and equip a mine.
When the tuna is exhausted, the
company may find Itiell the unhappy
l��Mrx*ssor of sn unproductive hole In
tho ground. Only the expenditure
of more money can make it produc
live, and the only ready means of
M curing such funds is to'induce the
holders of stock to place a certain
proportion of their holdings in the
treasury. All must consent, in order
t�� accomplish this end, and a single
obstinate person may block progress
by his refusal.
If the company Istocarrv l�� projects to a successful issue, all the
common stock should be pooled until
��11 the treasury stock is sold, or until
Uie mine Is on a paving basis, as
���nay happen befbre the treasury
Mock ia exhausted. It should be
provided at the inception that, in case
of necessity, the holders of common
��tock shall contribute a further
amount of stock to the treasury, In
order to enable tho company to do
velop a paying mine. Tne purchas
��ra of treasury stock will then bo
������asurcd of receiving value for their
monev, if it is possible to make the
pi-ospect into a mine, and the promoters will be compelled to look to the
development of a mine for tbe reward
of their labors, and not to speculation
in their stock, or to a "rakeofTon
the Ueasui v stock.

ONTARIO  SILVER.
Silver mining in the Port Arthur
district may be soon again actively
prosecuted as it was some years ago.
Fortunes were at one time made out
ofthe Silver Inlet, and other silver
properties, but the fall in the price
of the white metal caused them to be
abandoned. Silver is up again,
however, and, o'd idle mines are
being taken over by new companies
with a view to their renewed development.
An Iowa syndicate known as the
Argentite Mining company has now
purchased from the Shuniah Weaehu
Mines company the East End Silver
Mountain mine. No stock will be
sold, as it is the intention to work
this property on a small scale at first,
Increasing facilities as expenditure
may be warranted.
The East End Silver Mountain
property is one of tbe largest mining
properties in Algoma. It consists of
1300 acres and is blessed with all tbe
natural advantages to be desired.
Inside the area of this property and
situated not more than 2000 feet from
the mine, are the Dunias and Lizzard
lakes. Tbey are at least 150 feet
above the level of the mine, and will
give an excellent supply of water to
run a stamp mill The mine is only
1| miles from the P. A. D. A W.
track, so that supplies cin be brought
in at a low cost.
The amount of work that has been
done on this property is variously
estimated, and it is impossible to" examine the underground workings as
they are now entirely filled with
water. There are known to be two
tunnels* one 1800 feet and one 600
feet long; bar shafts down respectively 830, 125, 120 and 75 feet; also
drifts, crosscuts, stopings and other
work, which must have cost at least
$250,000. There are also thousands
of tons of ore on tbe dumps, and from
s-jecimens brought to town they will
give a renumerative return for the
work of milling.
FORTY   PACK   ANIMALS.
has arranged tor the importatioii ot
forty pack animals. During tbe open
season they will be used for carrying
provisions Into the district and on return trips* will be loaded with high
grade ore, Ttya train will be ke**
on the trail constantly until snow flies
again.
The White Grouse mountain ore is
princii-ally a high grade copper ore,
carrying both gold and silver. All
tbe principal claims are on one ledge
which is located for nearly seven
miles* although there are many other
Eromising ledges and the country is
lirly streaked with quaitz ledges
and stringers.
The Copper King Mining company,
which is largely comj-iosed of Montana
mining men, owns fourteen claims in
the district, principal among which
are the Copper King Storm King snd
Gold King. This company has made
extensive preparations for working
their claims during the winter, and
will do considerable development
work on two or three of their principal properties.
The Corner la Grain
There is hardly a doubt that before
the end ofthe year the White Grouse
district will be known as one ot tbe
richest mineral centers in British
Columbia. White Grouse mountain
is about seventeen miles southeast of
Pilot Bay and in the heart ofa
mountainous country that extends
from Kootenay lake to the valley of
the Upper Kootenay river. The
district is reached by a trail built
eastward from Granite creek last
year, bat because of its distance from
the lake its development has been
greatly retarded by lack of adequate
transportation facilities. However,
much prospecting bas been done there
and a number of high grade and
strongly defined copper and silver
veins nave been discovered. Some
of tne claims have been opened np
with such satisfactory results that the
owners, some half dozen in number,
have spent tbe entire winter there
without once returning to civilization.
Owing to the altitude of the district
the snow remains on the ground
until late in June, but preparations
are already being made this year to
pack in supplies on an extensive
scale. W. R. Raniedel), tbe representative of a  Montana syndicate,

Says It Is Not True.
Sandon*, June 1,1897.
Editor Paystreak:
In your issue of last week you had
a local article in reference to myself
which I wish to set right. The article alluded to was in reference to
me asking a certain party who was
a terror to the black jack games to
take a walk. Now, sir, there is a
mistake here, and I don't know
whether the report was made public
maliciously or for fun. If for fun
I would ��� not say anything, as
I am always prepared to give and
take. However, as the matter has
been made public I wish to explain.
About two weeks ago a party of capitalists struck Sandon, and the same
day a notorious confidence man from
the coast also reached here during
tlie evening. The first mentioned
party became exhilarated, owing,
no doubt, to thc altitude of the climate, and our confidential friend
caught on to one of them and played
him, too, as I saw him get some
money from him. I paid close attention to them through the night,
all through the games referred to,and
when, towards morning, our wealthy
friend got domiciled in a certain
place where his extra cash would be
appreciated and kept in Sandon, I
went home, and the next forenoon
while on duty I saw the other chap
and told him the air of Sandon was
not good for his health. He tumbled
and accordingly left. This is the
story from start to finish, snd while
I have been "joshed" about it on
several occasions I did not think it
would he made public, and only
write this by way of explanation.
Hoping I'have* not infringed too
much on your valuable space, I am,
sir, yours truly,
Alex. G. Hamilton*,
Chief Constable Sandon District.
Mining Notes.
J. Brown has three men working
on thc Inverness on North Fork of
Carpenter.
Ewen Morrison, western manager
for the Slocan-Cariboo Mining A Development Company, limited liability, Is in Sandon, and is surveying
tiie Evening Star and Keystone,
North Fork of Carpenter, for a'crown
grant, and will proceed with development at once.
The Charleston, just above the
Whitewater, has been working all
winter and spring, and now have
about 1100 feet of tunneling. Several cars of ore have been shipped
from the workings, netting good returns. Four tunnels are in on the
lead. The houses will he increased
this moiith and an additional force
put to work.
Charlie Ingrain has returned from
Miles City, Mont., where he has hern
for two or three weeks. He reports
everything very quiet, and had
numerous inquiries regarding the
Slocan country, and several expressed an intention of coming out
this summer.
J. G. Steele started development
work on the Democrat, Chetopa,
Opatunka, on Silver mountain, adjoining the Idaho and Alamo mines.
The ledge on the Demc rat Is traceable on the surface clear across the
claim, and has been tested by surface cuts and found well mineralized for fiOO feet. Mr. McConnell,
the Dominion mineralogist, pronounced this one of the strongest
