SAM AID CODY Urate 5,1896.
A Property That l�� Very Appropriately
Named-   A Remarkable Record-
About one and one-third miles
from Sandon is situated the
Wonderful group of claims composed of the Wonderful, Lookout
aud Columbus. TVs property has
been iu operation but a short
period, active work having been
prosecuted OB it only since June
20th last. Nevertheless in this
time the Wonderful has made a
record for itself as an ore producer
that in nothing short of remarkable.
On this property tbe lead was
s���� deeply covered with wash that
(he waters of Trioutary and
Miller ereeks were brought into
requisition and the earth and
boulder*, the accumulation of
ages, was sluiced ott" and the lead
exposed for a distance of 100 feet.
I Hiring the sluicing operatioiiH the
ore which had broken off from the
ledge was loosened by the action
of the waters and thus the miner*
wan ennbled to secure an immense amount of fine ore without
having recourse to powder and
>teel. It seems remarkable that
galena should be mined by means
of water, but where others failed
in finding the lend on this property on account of the deep wash,
the water did the work and most
effectually, too, an the enormous
gulch woin bv the aetiou of the
stream, will amply testify.
The aetuul amount of ore taken
from the mine, since .June 'ast is
almost 890 tons. A shipment of
some 280 tout was made 10 the
-.inciter whien gave a net return
i��fIIRJitt.OU. A shipment of H4
tons has been made since from
wbieh the returns have uot been
heard as yet, but it is entimated
that the net value will be iu the
neighborhood of 16,600 iu round
figures. Besides this there is a
large amount of ore sacked at the
mine and which is being rawhided
to tbe railroad preparatory to being shippel to the smelter and
the ore house contains about three
carloads of ore, half of which is
already assorted.
At present a force of twenty-
two men obtain employment in
this property, some of whom are
engaged in driving a tunnel on a
vein which crosses the Lookout
and Columbus above the Wonder,
till ground. Very fair progress
U being made on ibis work and
Mime very nice samples of ore
have been obtained from the*e
workings. On the Wonderful,
about 100 feet below the place
where the lead was stripped by
last summer's (during operations,
a tunnel is being run to tap the
vein at a depth iu order to facilitate tbe mining of the  ore.   The
ground is very easily worked, the
cost of tunnelling being about $4
per foot. About 3,000 feet of mi-
derground development has been
done on this property, the greater
part of which is practically useless
as for as demonstrating the value
of the mine is concerned.
At this mine, as is the case with
the most of the Slocan mines, the
comfort of the men is carefully
looked after aud their quaiters is
a model of cleanliness   and  order.
A fine trail connects the mine
with Sandon and consequently the
cost of transportation of the ore
from tbe mine to the railroad is
reduced to a minimum. To a
person who has never seen the two
great factors in mining used in
conjunction, a trip to the Wonderful would well repay the small
efforts he would have to put forth
in order to reach the property.
The Wagon-Road at t eel
Thanks to the energy of Jas.
McDonnell. The road between
New   Denver and  the   F>rks   is
likely to materali/.e this winter.
Already quite a large sum has
been subscribed and before verv
long it is expected that the work
of construction will commence.
Charley Hammond of Sandon has
taken tbe matter iu hand and as
the benefit to Sandon will be great
everything should be done by the
citizens to further the undertaking,
both by liberal subscriptions and
co-operation. Tom Madigau is
looking after the interests of the
proposed road in Three Forks and
it is to the credit of the residents
there, that they are responding
most liberally. Denver an 1 Sil-
verton are both enthusiastically
in favor of tbe proposition and
can be relied on to uphold their
end So that, notwithstanding, the
attitude of our Kip Van Winkl*
government, tbe road that has
been so louu talked of and begged
for, will at last become a reality

One of the Shippere That Hae Helped
to Build Up the Slocan.
Situated on the mountain to the
rear and about 1,000 feet above
the city of Sandon lies the Ruth
mine one of the Slocan's most extensive shippers, a property, the
merits of which, has done its
share towards bringing this section prominently before the investing public. This property,
though staked in '92, was not developed to any great extent until
a year ago last September when
active operations were commenced
which resulted in placing the
property on a good shipping basis
and high up in the ranks of the
ore propucers of this country.
Since active  mining operations
have been commenced an immense
amount of work  has been done.
Some 2.000 feet of tunnelling has
been driven, chiefly  on  the  vein,
from which the great bulk of the
ore  already   shipped    haa   been
taken.    In No I   level,   which  is
in only about 100 feet,   the  veiu
shows  an  average   width of two
ami one-half fe*t of galena or** *n4
carbonates.    No. fc level,  which is
now in a'jout 470 feet,   shows  the
vein to have increased from  two
ami one-half   feet   to   a width of
from six   to   eight feet with  the
character of the ore practically the
same as in No.   I   level   with   the
exception that a  strip of concentrating ore lies between the  veins
of carbonates and galena.    la this
tunnel   there   are    about   seven
chutes from which the ore,  taken
out iu the stoping operationsJ^re
loaded iu'o the cars running iil^te
level beneath.    No. 3 level is on*
of the longest in the country being
in about 900 feet and as it  is iu
ore for almost all the distance, the
immense value aud  magnitude of
the ore chute   can   be   imagined
The vein in  this level  is about
ur feet in width, the ore iu which
of the same character as that
ntained   in   the tunnel   above.
A large quantity of concentrating
ore. which is   here   contained  in
tbe lead, is left untouched, until
such time as a mill can be erected
for its treatment.    Between No. 3
and No. 2 levels tbe ore has been
stuped out for about one-half the
distance with very satisfactory result*.    No.   I   level,   the lowest
tunnel in the property, is in about
340 feet, but they do not expect to
strike the lead short of 500 feet,
and when this   is completed the
mine will he proved to the depth
ol 7 00 feet.
"Tbla fine property, two-thirds of
which, it will be remembered was
sold to Mr. Foster, employes a
force of 53 men, whose material
wants are well attended to, tbe
bunk and mess house beiug one of
u      II
.   fol
the neatest and best equipped
affairs of the kind in the country.
The output from this mine is
about fifteen tons per day of carbonates aud galeua ore, the former
product running 70 ounces
in silver and from 30 to 40 per
cent, lead, the latter running 115
ounces silver and 70 per cent. lead.
A fine wagon road connects the
miue with the railroad where an
ore house has been built. The ore
house is so large that, in case of a
blockade on the railroad, the surplus ore can be stored there, thus
precluding tbe possbility of having
temporarily to close down the
mine on account of the upper ore
house being tilled up.

It is gratifying to note the steadv
and systeimtic manner In which mining oiteratfons are being pursued in
this district. Two or three years ajro
the Okanagan country was known
only as a section jwssessed of uuriaal-
led agricult.uaal resources. The
mineral wealth of the district was
unsuspected, save by few, and nothing of any consequence liad been
done towards prosi>ecting the hills
adjacent to Vernon. Now all this is
changed. Hundreds ot locations have
been recorded, and there are numerous mineral claims being worked
which promise a rich return to their
owners. This has been done without
the assistance of anything appraaoh-
to a Ijoom.
While strangers from all parts of
the globe have been pouring into
the celebrated Kootenay camps ready
and willing to Invest'their capital,
the residentsof this district have been
quietly spending their own inoi.ev
amd labor in opening up their own
district. Their faith and perseverance promise* to meet the reward it
deserves, and the advent of ��|>rin��

TnE summary manner in  which
our J. P.'s are dealing  with  the
tough characters of the city. can��
not but meet with the hearty support   and   commendation  of   our
citizens.    There is only oue  way
to deal with the question aud that
is by adopting a firm ami stringent
policy of suppression,  to the  element who   gain  a   livelihood   by
catering for the devotees of debauchery and  vice.   There  is no
lower grade of humanity than this,
and if they are allowed  to  live
this    parasitical     existance    the
town of Saudon will become  nothing more nor less than one huge 8ink
of moral filth.    Not only that, but
it will become a  town  iu which
none of the  legitimate  trades can
prosper ou account of  the  risk 01

ends of humanity are not  made to

Sandon, the miningand commercial center of the great Slocan, has
an enviable future opening out before it. With its railways, banks
and the rich mines which are
tributary to it we predict that it
will be one of the largest cities in
the Kootenay country as it is
now by long odds the liveliest.
Two much cannot be said of the
rapid strides it has made iu the
'ast two years, springing as it did
iu that short time from one hotel
and a shack to a town in which
t\ery necessary aud luxury enjoyed in the largest cities can be
obtained. As the months roll by,
properties that were heretofore
looked upon as mere prospects are
being converted into shipping
mines and ground stake 1 that
very little was known about hitherto has under development been
added to the list of promising
prospects lacking only the necessary capital to convert them into
The busy season for the Slocan
has arrived. Dozens of mines are
pouring their products into Sandon to be shipped by rail to tbe
smelter.   The sight of pack trains
and  long strings of rawhides   is
a     most      familiar     oue      in
the" town   and   one   has "Ouly  to
watch these   to   gain   an   idea of
what this section of the Slocau's
contribution to the  wealth  of the
country will  be.    It   is   a great
pity that some of our lethargic
legislators,  are  not here  for the
sight of the  prosperity and  progress of the couutry might,   warn
them that their system of studied
neglect to the best interests of the
Slocan are likely to result in anything  but   good   to  their official
ex ista nee.        	
Factors That Will Add Greatly to the
Siocan's Future Prosperity.      t
The establishment of two chartered banks in our midst is of
such immense importance, not
only to Sandon but to the Si oca u
country as a whole, that a few remarks concerning them and the
iuterests they affect will not be
amiss. Heretofore mining men
and merchants had to transact all
their banking business in Nelson,
and a lot of extra expense was
thus entailed, besides, the vicissitudes of traveling in the winter,
which are always so much greater
in a mountain country than elsr-
where, made the journey to Nelson
very irksome and oue that though
imperative was, vxtrejneljL ^distasteful.
That the absence of, banks in
the Slocan acted adversely to its
heft interests will be readily admitted byaM. For when an investor
comes in to purchase mining properties, it does not add to (he
country's inducements to have its
banking center ninety miles away.
All these extra expanses havi-
their weight with tbe shrewd
business man, and no matter how
rich th* country may be, the absence of facilities for transacting
business on a speedy and eeono
mica! basis has its influence in re
tarding the development of the
It is therefore with pleasure
that we refer to the establishment
of the Hank of B N. A. iu Sandon.
This institution is the oldest bank
in British Columbia having been
established in Victoria iu 185s
During the gold excitement iu
Cariboo it had a branch located iu
Barkerville aud through all th -
intervening years it has bee��
closely identified with the business
interests of British Columbia and
stands today a monument to the
growth and prosperity of our
Province. The directors of this
concern are men of extended influence and financial standing and
are well known in the best business circles of London, where the
head office is situated. Mr. H.
Stikeman. the gern'ial manager, at
Montreal, is well known in New
York, where, for some time, he
was first agent.
With a paid up capital of
94,860,600 and a reserve fund
of    If ��88,88$      no    doubt    can
'������ -  '���'. .  .'..	
be entertained as to their solidity.
"This institution was the first to
open up in Rossland, where it is
iu close touch with the mining interests of that community, ami
here like there, they are prepared
to give every facility to mining
and other interests, aud we have
uo doubt that acting manager Mr.
Marquis, who has had considerable experience in the (Cast. Maua-
toba aud British Columbia, will
become very popular with tiie
mining men ami merchants whose
business interests will bring them
in touch with him.
The Bank of British Columbia,
the first to establish in tbe Sloe in,
is one of the oldfst banks iu the
Province having been incorporated in 18012. Since then it has
held a high position iu the confidence of the public aud as the
pioneer establishment of the Slocan will undoubtedly receive the
patronage due to its push and enterprise. Its capital of #2.!��L'0,0��K)
with a reserve fund of ��436,660
speaks for the stability of the concern; aud the high position occupied by its directors as men of
acute business ability will add
very materially lo its prosperity
as an institution with whim our
mining men and merchants can
transact business on a basis of
stability and ec niomy. The local
manager Mr. Mytton has had a
uuuibei of years eXpefjeiHJy both
in Britisht'olumb1a anil In Hug I and
and as he is a genial and obliging
gentleman will undt.ubte lly be*
come very popular with all who
<nme in contact with him in his
business Capacity.
That the establishment of two
such strong concerns as the Bank
of British North Ameriou aid
Bank of B. C. will give fresh impetus to milling and commercial
interests throughout the country
io one can doubt for a moment,
and to we dwellers iu Sandon the
knowledge, that the commercial
supremacy of our town is established beyond cavil, is very pleasant. All things come to those who
know how to wait, aud though the
ultimate establishment of banks
in Sandon, as the mining center of
the Slocan, was Confidently counted
on, still it was with some surprise
that the pleasant news of their
advent was received by the good
people of the Slocan, Atn' in purl
to the eagle-like swoop with
which they flighted   in our midst.
Don't overlook the B. C. when
you want a meal that will make
you feel like a new individual,   t

Many of these idle mines are tilled

several months to bring the product

Port Townsend, Wash.,���The
steamer Alki, just arrived from
Alaska, brought news ot considerable excitment at Juneau as the result ofa decision by the Government
whieh will result in the' loss 0 d
great many homes and considerable
property in the best part of the citv.
The decision referred to has just been
rendered by Secretary ot the Interior
Francis and gives Mrs. Goldstein a
little over 20 acres ot land in tbe town
of Juneau on which her husband filed
her name as a mining claim. The
decision rendered by Secretary Francis ends a matter in which at oik
time or another a good portion of the
citizens of Juneau felt personally in
terested. In 188n Ruhis Goldstein, a
citizen of Juneau, which Was then
not much of a town, filed a claim
in what afterwards was the best property in the place. Not until tw<
years later did the public know that
part of the townsite was being claim
ed for mineral purposes. The citizem
finally decided to call a melting
There was so much leellng over the
matter that it jw��s seriously proposed
to either hang Goldstein or throw him
in the bay on the ground that he was
a public enemy. The case waa finally taken into the General Land Office

Ftluts are SCU. i:����d.
The oldest industry in Britain is
still carried an at the village of Brandon, on the borders of Norfolk and
Suffolk, and is in a n\ unsifhrg condition. It is a inanufaet< rv of isuii
and tinder-box flint-. It appiarsthat
there is no regular Hint factory, but
the work is done in little sheds, often
at the back of the townsfolk's cottages. It will naturally be asked:
Who wants tinder-box flints and gun
flints in these days of phosphorus
matches and Martini Henrys? Tbe
answer to the question is that there is
a good trade in tinder-box flints with
Spain and Italy, where the tinder
box still keeps its ground in rural
Montreal. ��� Tbe school question will
in all likelihood be the means of defeating the Laurier government.
Well informed politicians are of the
belief that the defeat of the govern-
ment during the next session of par
liament cm be counted upon as
almost a certainty. It is difficult to
tell what course will be pursued. The
chances are, however, that one of the
prominent liberals from (Quebec will
move a vote of want of confidence iu
the government on the school ques
lion, This may not receive the support of the opposition as a whole, but
there is no doubting that with the
vast majority of the Quebec members
supporting the motion the govern
ment is sure to be defeated.
In that event Hon. Mr Laurier
would go to the country on the school
question issue having his policy
baaed on tbe settlement just given
cue. What Sir. Charles Tapper would
do under the circumstances cannot be
told, but judging from the sttnd la-
took during the campaign it is quit*
likely that he would appeal to the
people to abide by the constitution.
Such being the case it is entirely
probable that Sir. Charles would be
placed in power by a good working
majority, tor he could count on nearly
all the Quebec members. Mr. Laurici
would have no hidden card to play in
Quebec such as he had at the las'
La Presee (Conservative) has the
following significant paragraph:
"Some Conservative politicians believe that the moment has arrived for
Sir Charles Tuppertoform a coalition
party ai Ottawa in older to overthrow the Laurier government. The
pretended settlement of the school
question could, according to them,
form the best call tor the late minis
try to come to power again." It addt
that the appeal of Monsignor Lange
vin will be heard in the Province ot
Quebec, and that the provincial elect
0 d will take place next spring, not
o.tly on questions of local administration, but also on the famous settlement between Messrs. (jneenwav and

"The increase ot popnlation of the
the Dominion, and especially of the
region west of Lake Superior, is an
absolute necessity to the prosperity of
the uonntry.    An enormous amount ol
capital  lias been expended on this
part of jhe Dominion, with very little
return.    The net result is a railway
scross the plains, for which there is
an insufficiency of  traffic, and which
is consequently forced to charge heavy
rates for freight and passengers; a
few scattered settlements which ought
to have been continuous in order to
minimize the hardships of pioneering;
a numqer of Indians cooped up in
reserves and maintained at (jovern--
ment expense, when they might just
as well have  been left to roam in
freedom over the wilderness; and a
costly police force, which, but for,the
policy of throwing open the whole
country u. prematurely,  might   have
been dispensed with. The withdrawal
of capital for investment in land that
is still non-producing has exausted
the older provinces, while the fiscal
burdens resulting from unprofitable
puolic expenidtures has had a stiilln^
effect on almost every form of industry.   The acquisition of the North
west from the Hudson Bay Coinpain
has so far proved- a buid -n instead ol
a boon to Canada.    Whether it wili
continue to do so del ends on t'*e policy
to be adopted.  That the people of tin
West are themselves fully alive to its
great need is -shewn by the organiz
ation ot a 'Western Canada Immigra
tion Association,' with   branches in
Western Ontario,  Manitoba* Assiui
boia,   Alberta.   Saskatchewan   and
"   British Colombia.   The central office
of the society is, very appropriately,
established in Wi nipeg.t e gateway
of the Northwest   s>uch a propaganda can do much to aid the Government in promoting settlement, especially as it has adopted for its aim that
"every; acre of laud must be freed
and given to the people."   The treat
ment of speculative holders may have
to be drastic, but the public interest
demands that   every  owner shall
either live on his holding or sell to
some one who will do so.

A   New   N>*teiM of  Ciold Mining.
A Philadelphia pajur states that it
is reported on good authority that a
large company has been organized to
promote a system of gold mining
without removing the ore from tl e
earth. The scheme as applied to
gold mining is to sink shafts a few
inches apart and pump into them a
suitable difcolvent. A strong electric
current is then to be passed through
tne soil between the shatts. The action of the electric current is claimed
to be that it will carry with it the
dissolved gold from oue shaft to the
other and deposit it there up any
metallic circuit iu the same maimer
as electro-plating. The successful
mining ot sulpher in what is called a
���somewhat similar way in Ijonisiana
is quoted as giving some reason tor
thinking the gold mining scheme
legible. But the case is very differ-
ent.In LxiisurtUthe valuable deposit.-
of sulpher are covered with quicksand and many unsuccessful attempts
have been made to reach the sulphur.
The attempt wus made to freeze the
quicksand, and for this pur| ose a
giant retrigirator plant was set up,
but without snecess. Then a Cleve
land inventor offered the proposition
to sink a 4 inch pipe, and inside of
this a 2-inch pipe, and to melt the
sulj hur by forcing down steam under
pressure and allowing it to expand at
the bottom of the well, and pumping
out the molten sulphnr through the
small 2-Inch pipe, as is four iu certain
salt wells worked on a similar plan.
This scheme worked successfully and
is now iu operation, sulphur W per
cent pure lieing oiaained, which k
allowed to cool in vats and afterward
cut into suitable blocks. ,
