Thk   prospector   who   fails   to
strike it rich th if* summer can take
a crumb  of   comfort   in   the  old
HUpe.rstitiou    that    the   finders of
bonanza   mines   always  come   to
violent ends, says Tlie Trail Creek
Miner.    In   the   minds  of   many
old-time gf>ld hunters   this  idea is
accepted   as  an   undeniable  fact.
an<l they will  be interested in the
number   of   instances   confirming
the idea which somebody   has dug
up.    According  to   this    searcher
after truth, the.finders  of  no  less
than forty of the richest   mines in
tin*   world   have   died   by   violent
means.    Of these, two   were   shot,
three were engulfed in their mines',
and the others  di1.appe.4red   never
to be heard of again.    Dutch  William, who discovered the   Cariboo
gold field.died a pauper.    Marshal,
who fount,   tbe  California  placer
goltL depended upon public charity for some time before his  death.
Montana Plummer, who found one
of the richest mines in   the  world,
was   hanged.     ''Doughnut   Bill,"
'���Old   Eureka"    and     "Nine-mile
Clarks" were all killed in drunken
rows. Johnny Horner of the
Horner mine went Hat broke :md
shot himself. The owner of the
Homestake mine turned highway-
man. Bill Fairweather of the
Alder Gulch mines killed himself
through his dissipation and excess*
es. Tin; Indian- killed Colonel
Storey. An avalanche finished
the discoverer of ihe Standard
mine in California. And so ofl
throughout the li>t. Vet most of
us would take our chances on dy.
ing similar deaths. If we could
only make similar finds.
Slocan Railroad Extensions.
The Canadian Pacific Railway
Company is advertising for bids
for the grading of the Slocan
branch of the Columbia .Sc rCtM.t-
enay railway, from tlie bridge
across the Slocan river to Slocan
City, a distance of about thirt\
one miles. This insures the construction of this important rail
way this summer. It wilt connect
with the railway from Nelson at
the mouth of the Slocan river.
With the completion of the Heinze
road from Trail to Hobson an all-
raii r��>ute is afforded as far Sfl
Rctsland. It i��< chiefly important
as an outlet for the Slocan ores t��>
the Trail smelter.

boom in the Seine river and Rainy

that there is much suffering tn account ot lack of lood, and the price of
pro. isions has gone skyward.    Last
fall the lew merchants in the gold
country pur in a much larger stoik

anticipation  of considerable    ot    a
lioom,  but their  calculations   have
been brought to naught.   Navigation
will not open till  May,  aud aimOM
nothing can be taken Into the country
till that time.    I ��uring the next sixty
days most of the miners will have to
eat oa short rations.    Flour is $15 a
barrel, beef 45c a pound,  potatoes $8
bushel and hard to get at that, kero
sene $2 a gallon,  and   reserved  fur
one a triends even at that price : hay
(75 a ton, and the commonest ��|��alit

thousand feet.   Owing to the great
depth ot now, which lays from five
to seven feet deep in the timber,  the
ireighting of goods from   the end of
the railroad running north  from this
city is almost impossible.
A very important deal In connect -
ion with mining lands in this section
has been made by the Ontario land
department, which has leased s<.nie
64)000 acre*, lying on Rainy and
Shoal lakes. Ihe latter near the
Mikado mine, to an English syndicate
headed by Colonel Engeldue. of the
Mikado mine. The syndicate lias
agreed to spend (ldOtOOO in the next
three years, and has deposited f'20.
000 with the government as an
earnest of good faith and as a return
for the concession. The company is
not to mine but will explore, and
sell mines it discovers and opens.
The Keepews Mining company
has bought for $25,000 the lusher
mine on Manitou lake. This property
has shown the great richness ol any
part in that part ofthe district.

they filled their rude sluice boxes
They washed out I little gold, while
they threw away a lump of nearly
njre silver  down  the  gulch,   with
loud imprecations becaase the  "blue
stuff" clogged the machines.     They
were looking for gold, and drifted
about from one place u. another, with
more orlesssneceea onti^meday they
suddenly  cut into the rock oi  I I
great Conisrock hale and  began  to
take out gold at the rate of $1000 per
day.   But the blue stuff was becoming more and mure troublesome      A
rancher from Grass Valley California
visiting the cam}., picked uj> BOOM   I
the despised rock from the waste jheap
of one ot the  mine*, and   afterward
gave it to.ludge Walsh oi CalHornia,
who saw at once that it was nearly
pure silver.     This happened tbaat
midnight and before dawn the cute
judge was miles on the road to what
was to be Virginia City;   man the

lisn syndicate heretofore carrying on
inining operationa in the Transvaal.
Ool.  \Y.  T. Englcduc, the  owner of
Mikado, engineered the deal for the
Britishers, and under it they obtain
:iu exclusive license to proepcel upon
two huge blocks of land in Algoma -
one lying in the Rainv River district
proper, and containing -14,000 acres,
and the other lying between Shoa'
lake and the I/ike ol the Woods, and
comprising 30,000 acres, i he svndi
catc obtain the right to investigate
these liugli properties for a period of
three years on condition that they
spend at ieaat $30,000 the first year,
$10,000 tbe second, and $60,000 the
third.
While it is a hopeful sign to see
outsiders thus interesting themselves
in Ontario's mineral lands, many art
ofthe opinion that the government
has not exacted a sufticient considcra
tion from the capitalists, The granting ot exclusive right to them
practically blanket- a huge territory
ot laud, shutting it off from develop
ment f>r three years at least, and
nine!) of ihis territory is counted the
richest in Ontario. Is this another

The announcement   from Ottawa
that the Cabinet had postponed indefinitely the question of the Crow's

with the announcement that the C.P.

and has made arrangements lor commencing to build in the early spring ;
and wtili the fact that a large pur
chase of steel raits, presumably tor
I'd-road, whs made at the Carnegie

Taking all the facts together it
looks as though the C.l'.K. had determined to build this road, no matter what part the Government plays
iu the transaction, and that the Oov
eminent has been warned by the
atatt of public feeling In this country
Into desisting from any attempt which
may have been inyiew to assist the
company In the enterprise beyond
giving it the customary bonus ot so
many thousand dollars a mile.
The Dondas Banner said the other

underestimates the size ofthe mining
boom and the commercial importance
of tlie new road. Rest as-urcd the

1 THE   PAMSTREAK.
TO   HKSlMK   WORK
While no. much Is being said about
the Coenr 'd Alene mining district,
there is a vast amount of work going
on in the mines abont Wallace. Ward*
ner and Median.
The latest development is that contemplated by the Ranker Hill ami
Sullivan mining company. It is con
tinuing the great tunnel which was
commenced in 1S90 by D.A. Clement
who was the manager of the proper
tv. It had been run between .VOand
600 feet at the time ofthe troubles in
that section, and the work has not
been continued since that time. Manager Bradley purchased a 40-drill
compressor plant during his recent
visit in Chieago.
The work will be the gratest ever
undertaken in the district, and when
completed will be about a mile and a
half in length, and at one mile will
tap .be big vein running through
thai section, probably* on the Tyler
groand. At the mine it will Jtap the
vein 300 feet below the present lowest level. It will be a greatjthingtor
all the camp as it will drain all the
mines between Kellogg and the mine
This tunnel was commenced tirst
back of (be mill at Kellogg.so that
any one familiar with the country can
see tbe immense advantage it will be
and the enormous bodies ot ore which
it will open up. The Hunker Hill
and Sullivan was the earliest location
in the Coeur dAlenes, and nn enormous amount of money has been extended in its development. There is
a large amount ot ore knocked out in
the present workings ofthe mine.
The mill at Kellogg is most com
paste; and it is said has a capacity lor
handling GOO tons ot ore daily.
E. W. Bradley i-�� the manager ot
the property, and he will hereafter
make his headquarters at San Eran
cisco. Erederick Baridge is the mill
manager, anil it is learned that he
will take the active management cf
the company's property. J E. Brans-
eosse is the superintendent ot the mine.
It is a great property, and one ofthe
largest silver lead properties in the
world.

i>f all strange things in the politics
of the day Is the pronounced advocacy
by the (rlobe ofthe C.P.R a interests
in connection with the proposed
Crow's Nest Railway. So accustomed
had the country grown to denunciations ot the mono*,olistic C.P.K. by
the Clobe that one has to look twice
to lie assured that it really is the
Globe that is now the chief champion
of the railway naiufd. In the not
remote days preeeeding the late jml
itical unpleasantness, the Globe
easily made it appear that the highwayman was quite a respectable
member of society in comparison with
the C.P.K.. which was held up as the
very embodiment of monopoly, and
several other had things. And now
the Globe advocates the lmildingof
the Crows Nest Railway by the CLP.
R., to be accompanied by the customary heavy bonusing and the granting of enormously valuable concess
ions in coal and oil lands. No wonder
that able and Independent journals
such as the Toronto Telegram are
out in stong oppopition, and our
lively friend, the Toronto World,
charges there is a  conspiracy  ��nd
scandal wrapped up m the deal
that equals the other great scandal of
72.
It is a question whether the Dominion Government will, or will not have
hand or j��art in forwarding the building ofthe proposed railway, if the
Government does step in, howt-ver.
all sincere opponents of monopoly
will track the Lturier Administration
in retaining po****$sion of the Crows
Nest Pass and Railway, with all tin
vast mineral and oil privileges at.
tacheil. The C.P.R has done v. ry
well out of this country, and. whOst
Canadians are justly proud ofthe
great railway, they should not he 6E*
peetod to give it a elear deed ol the
whole Dominion. Va'u' enough has
been given the C.P.R.-enough to
show tht* faith and good -will o( the
nation. More should not be asked,
and. Mr. Eoster to the contrary not
withstanding, opposition to further
privileges and ConceSBaOns will be
found to be vigorous and determined,
as wcil as advisable, in the public
interest. Railways are never weary
oi asking, hut it is time some share
of the nations wealth was preserved
for ami ensured to the people.

An tmoortsnt Decision. ,
The appellate coort at Victoria
has decided the celebrated Monitor
mining ease in favor of Wells, the
appellant, and against Petty, the
respondent. The case is a particularly interesting one. as it involves
a question >.f ownership. It seem*,
that in May. 1895, Petty determha*
e��l to prospect the lulls near Three
Forks. He met Wells, who told
him that he had found tonic float
and informed him where he
thought he would find the ledge.
It is said that before Petty started
out he told Wells: '.'If I find the
ledcre. you are in on it."
The ledge was found sad the
Monitor mine located, which
vould not now he btttght for
$75,000. A-the mine was becoming
valuable. Wells brought soil tor
one-half interest. The facts a* to
the conversation were not disputed. The supreme coutt jttdgs declared his inability to decide what
"in on it "meant, stating that it was
too indefinite, conceding*;, however,
that titers whs some sort of con
tract in which the plaintiff was
entitled to something. Tl." case
wa- dismissed with the csts as.
sessed against plaintiff. Well- np
pealed to the full court, which has
just derided that the words "in on
it" meant that Wells was entitled
to one-half the claim.
Tlie Monitor mine is one of
those wonderful Slocan properties
which have he^n producing ore
from the grass roots. A vent- ago
last fall Petty bonded the mine to
T. K .lefhrson for 130,000. upon
which bond only $.'>>*�� vas paid
down. For some reason the bond
wa.- not taken up. and Petty, with
only a small 8mount of monev
left from his S.*>oo. started in to
work the property himself, with
the result that in a short time a
shipment was made which netted
the owner 116,000. Altogether
about $32,000 worth of ore has
heen chipped.
Strike Oedsred Off.
At a meeting of the miner's
union in Leadville. Colorado, it
was decided hy a vote of approximately 900 to 200 to declare the
strike off. Thin is the result of
the recent vigorous efforts on the
part of E. V. Ilebs and Mine
ManagerT. S. \\*<>od.-. who is very
popular with the miners.
The   strike   was   declared   June
i**th. 1896, and ha.- therefore la.-!
ed eight months and t w��*iit\-one
days. It Iia- CDSl the cmp fully
$4,000,000, besides the COSt to the
lahor organizations <>.' the country,
which have contributed generous
Iv in aid of the strikers.
The work of hauling ore from
the Goodenough continues. Ahout
three tons a day is the output of
this property.
