SANDON AND CODY, Fehniary 20,1891.
A Few of tha Properties Which Have
Made Sandon the Bustling

Iu last steak's Issue the respective value** of some of   the   principal  shippers adjacent   tu Sandon

This group, wbic.i i�� situated on

a very valuable  property.     In one

traced distinctly through nine
claims Tha w.��rk done on this
group had been confined mostly to
the Reed, up to the time it wan
taken over by ihe Vancouver and
British Columbia General Explor
ation Company. Since then a
large amount nf work lias been
.lone on the Sandon side of the
divide amounting III all to over
300 feet of tunneling.   Acer loadj
���hipped in the early part of the
season gave a net return of $85 to
the ton. It is the intention of the
syndicate who own this property
to erect a concentrator ft r the pnr-
pose of treating the ores mined.
At present about ten men are employed on the property running a
crosscut to tap the lead at a depth
from the surface.
R  E. Lee
This mine is located about a
quarter of a mils from the Last
Chance Hud is being rapidly developed into a very valuable pro-
party. The vein varies in width
from eight to eighteen inches of
ore. From three carloads ah ipped
some time ago returns oi" 130
ounces of silver to the ton and 7">
per cent, lend were obtained.
About twelve men are employed
on this property.
The Washington
This property, which is among
tin* large shippers of the Slocan.
was one of the rir>t proDCi ties to
be located when this great ramp
was discovered. During the years
from :cj to '94 about I4��H"> tons of
on* was shipped, then work c-ased
and was not re commenced until
the concentrator was built. Since
then the property has been a steady
producer and has done its share
towards making the name of Ihe
Slocan famous for the richness of
it*- stiver mines. During the past
season over 00 carloads of concentrates has been shipped, which
gave return- of '.'."> ounces silver to
the ton and 00 per cent, lead, be-
sides | large amount of crude ore.
which gave returns of from 1<>S to
186 ounces silver tn the ton and

erected in the Slocan and was designed and erected '��\ Tom Mitchell, the well-known concentrator

per. The hulk of the work, how
ever, has been done on the silver
lead veins and a large extent uf
ground has been opened up. The
smelter return- on the galena ore
shipped has yielded from 79.6 to
'JT.'J..'' ounces silver per ton and III
tt* til per cent. lead, oue lot of
twenty-seven tons netting $186.12
per ton. while the carbonate
ores gave returns of 166 to t78.fi
ounces silver per ton and 22*) per
cent. lead. The company who
operate this mine recently declared a dividend nf 1140,000. Daily
shipments  are   being   made    from
this property.
Beside? being the basis of sup-
plies for all these mines, Sandon is
the headquarters of a host of tnin
ing aud stock companies, notably:
The Reco Mining and Milling
Company, tbe Csmeronian Mining ami Milling Company, the
Star Mining and Milling Company,
the Dry Belt Mining and Milling
Company, the Phoenix Consolidated Mining and Milling Company,
tbe Koulette Mining aud Milling
Company, the Canadian Mining.
Milling and Smelting Company,
the Slocan Queen Mining aud
Milling Company, the Selkirk
Mining and Milling Company and
a number of others which lack of
space prevents from giving in detail. Taking all these things into
consideration then the statement
that Sandon has the brightest
future of any other town in British
Columbia is no exaggeration, but a
plain statement of facts.
A  Rich Assay.
Talk of rich assays, can   anyone
beat this one obtained from a pick
ed sample  of  ruby   galena   taken
from the lowest level in  the   Reco
mine, the specimen assayed gave a
return of 11,030 ounces   silver  to
the ton.    Taking the  above  as  a
mmple of the immensely rich ore
to be found   Intermixed  with the
giilena at  this  mine,    is   it  to  be
wondered   .it    that   carload  shipments return an average  of 77<> .*
ounces of silver per ton   besides  a
large nercentage of lead      The carbonate opes are appreciating   very
much in value as depth i-  gained
on this property as a  carload shipment    made,    the     returns    fiom
which    received     recently     were
S02.45 ounces silver and   28.50 per
cent. lead, will testify.    This property is by for  the  richest  iu  the
Kootenay. and if carload shipments
t-'uch as the last, give such rich re
turns, it will be a matter of no surprise if another 1100,000  dividend
be paid in the next two months.
A Tidy Sum  Collected
The etVorts of Hugh Cameron
and the gentleman who assisted
him in taking subscriptions for the
relief of Wm. Kerr, the unfortunate
man whose feet were so badly
frost bitten thai I hey bad to be
amputated,   were  vert   successful
and 1128.50 was collected and
placed to Kerr's credit In the
Bank of British Columbia front
whence it will be disbursed
tint.ugh 11. Cameron. The list of
subscript ions, owing to lack of
space, cannot be presented in de-
dail. but any person wishing to

Victorious     Bringing     the      Diatrict
Medal With Them.
On Wednesday two rinks from the
Sandon Curling Club went to
Kaslo to play for the District
Medal, which is presented by the
Manitoba branch of the Royal
Caledonian Curling Club, with
which branch tbe Kaslo and San.
don Clubs are affiliated. The
games were played on Thursday
afternoon and proved to be well
contested and the finish  intensely
interesting. Tbe draw resulted in
Hugh Mann's rink having to play
D. \V. Moore's rink and M. L.
Grim men's rink to play James
VVatigh's rink.
The Sandon rinks  played   at   a
disadvantage as the Kaslo  rink is
about fifteen feet longer than  that
of Sandon.   the   latter  rink   being
that much shorter than   the   regu-
lation length.    At tbe close of the
Mann-Moore  game and   with   oue
end to play in   the   Waugh-Grim-
inett game. Kaslo   was  one   point
ahead and the  chances  that  Sandon would bring  back  the  medal
seemed very pooi.    When   Wangh
came to piay he   was  lying  short
with Grinunett  second.     Waugh
played  and   put   on   a beautiful
guard.      Grinunett    played    and
took off the guard.     Waugh   then
played   to put on   another  guard
but  "hogged."     Everything uow
depended on   the   last  stone.      If
(iriminett   could   take     Waugh's
Stone not and lie himself, he would
make two paints and thus Sandon
would win the medal.    During tbe
most intense exeiiement Grimmett
played his last stone, took Wftttgh's
shot out and lay   two   points  and
the   District   Medal   was   won   by
Sandon.    In the evening a friendly
game was  played and  Kaslo wen.
The Kaslo Club treated the San
don boys to a tine banquet and too
much praise cannot be giveu the
Kaslo Club for the generous and
hospitable way in which they used
the Sandon club. Following is

Butte anil Ituntoii.
Butte, Mont���The Butte redaction
works have started with a capacity of fi(X) tons ot ore a day. New
buildings have been erected coverinir
several   acres  of ground   and new
machinery put in place Instead of
treating 150 tons each day, as in the
past, f>00 tons will in future tie hand
led every 21 hours. The ore will be
supplied from the Colusa, Parrot and
the Original mines.
On the B.itte and Boston properties
under the reorganization, 1,1 mo men
will be put to work in mines and
smelter. Ihe Boston and Montana,
now operating the Butte and Boston
smelter, will after Feb. 1 be (breed to
use its own concentrator at Great
Falls, Mont., which is now about
One of the richest strikes made for
a long time in the mines tributary to
Butte is reported from the tiold Flint
twelve miles south of the city.   On
the mine a great deal of money lias
been spent and it bas yielded several
hundred thousand dollars.    The lead
was lost several years ago and after
the property changed hands Several
times the big lead   is  again   found.
The strike was made a bout '.iUO feet
from the surface and the body of ore
is large  and  runs $115 to the  ton.
Some of it went as high as $70 in gold
and 180 ounces in silver.   Owing to
the fact that the lead was apparently
lost for good a long lease and a low
bond  was secured   by the present
operators.   Several rich strikes have
been made and Ca^ch time tlte lead
has been lost. Finally the mine went
into the hadsoftwo Duluth men who
spent some $15,(XX) in going 700 feet.
They failed to get ore and gave a
lease and bond to the  present Operators, who have a bonanza.

Ibughton, Mich. -The business of
copper mining is having such a boom
as it has never known before, and a
food copper mine  comes next  to a
good gold property in worth to stockholders.    Indeed in many cases it is
tar better.   The excitement all over
the copper fields of America, from the
liake Superior region to Montana, in
eluding the Black Hills and  the far-
off gold copper fields of the West, is
increasing steadily and is causing a
closer search than ever for this metal.
New finds are reported from many
localities, and   in  the  lake  region
where are numerous mines that have
heen abandoned for a score of years,
there are prospects that old workings
will he reopened and   half a dozen
once    thriving    town    reinhabited.
From Ontonagon to the tip of Keweenaw peninsula   there are many of
these mines and towns and back of
Ontonagon  are  a  dozen   old mines
that are known to be   very   rich in
copper.     Already  steps  are  being
taken for the  exploration   of these
properties and if copper keeps at its
present price they will all be busy in
a year or two.
A sale of 4,00.1,000 pounds of copper
wire has just been made for export
at 113c and many other orders of as
great magnitude are said to be on
the books of American companies.
Proposals are now out for copper for
twenty-eight large electric railways
in England alone. Foreign ship*
builders are using vastly more copper
than ever, while the use of copper in
sulphate is something astonishing,
40,0U0 tons of sulphate, requiring 15,-
tons of copper being needed in Italian
vineyards alone this year.
The first of these idle copper mines
to resume are the Isle Koyal and Portage Lake properties, the deal for their
purchase hiving just been closed.
The organization of the purchasing
Company will be made this week,
when the names of its backers will

of mining has been made by the

twelve months has sunk i's new shaft

expected to increase its output to

Wallace, Idaho.    The new concentrator nf the Tiger-l'oornian, built to
replace the old mills that burned last
March, is completed, and but for the
colti  weather  would  have   already
been working full blast, handling all
the ore 800 men could take out of the

small way for two weeks, and  before

the cold weather came, ninety  men
were employed.   While the Morning,

get along with so little manual labor.
From the time the ore is dumped Into
the   bin   until   the concentrates are
in the car, the  work is done almost
entirely by machinery, only six men
to the shift being required to operate
it, and two ot them are engaged in
loading the  concentrates,   and two
more attend to tbe rock crushers.   At
no stage is tbe ore handled by human
labor except after the concentrates
are run out of hopper bottomed  bin*

freight cars and damped automatically.
Asbestos was recently discovered

It covers half a mile square and
would cost little to work it. Most

mines are in the vicinity of Quebec.
There has also been discovered re
cently by the same man a graphite
mine, eighty miles south of the asbestos mine. This lies In ledges and is
regarded as a very rich deposit

!$15,000or less, but there have been
some rich linds iu that vicinity since.
A few days ago there were shipped
from tin" divide thirty five tons of ore
that aggregated $98.15 gold i��er too.
Galena, the long quiet camp near
this city, is booming from the work
ofthe Union Hill Company,  and new
buildings and new business firms are

The Union Hill company aillopeo its
