Ths Slocsn oountrj lying between
Arrowhead and Kootenay lakes has
forged ahead absolutely on the merits
of its rich silver deposits, tbe output
and development demonstrating tbat
this Is one of the richest ailver and lead
producing regions in the world. Considerable development Is proceeding
and there are over 20 shipping mines,
which number will be increased st an
early tlAte.
A very rich district in West Kootenay
that bids fair to become one of the large
producers ol British Columbia Is known
as Cariboo Creek, situated between
Nakusp and Robsou, with easy access
to the C. PR. Company's splendid line
of steamers running between Arrowhead and Trail daily and calling at
Burton City, the outlet and inlet of all
mines in the district. The new discoveries are attracting much attention
and it ia a wonder that the promising
locality has not long since come into
the prominence ita merits deserve. The
advantages of the Cariboo Creek appear
to have been ovei looked by expert*
and speculators. Tbe eutire country is
ofa solid formation, tin* lodges wide,
carrying high values in both gold and
-.ilver with a heavy percentage of lead.
There is no ittdicaiion of pinching in tin*

Itttnbia-Cariboo is abont seven mile*
from Burton, a wagon road is nearly
completed all the way and the rest of
the distance is over a good trail. This
propertv consists of three claim-., a
well defined lead of -rose quarU is traceable a distance of over 8,<Y*o feet, carrying galena and carbonate* and running
high iu gold from the surface. A shaft
his been sunk a considerable depth

along the outcrop, proving tht vein

a very strong one at that Crossing

a tunnel now being driven will intersect
the ledge at a considerable depth
When this is accomplished drifting on
the itAge both i-ast aiul west will be
commenced aud a connection made with
the shaft This property is one of the
ln��*t in West Kootenay The wealth,
permanency and values in so large a

win large quantities of ore at a nominal
cost When the tunnel connects with
the shaft, everv ton taken out will be

On the Black Bess very little work
haa been done so far, although the vein
matter shows in considerable bodies in
various parts of the claims The vein
is composed of iron ami steel galena,
the assay* showing high result* in gold
and silver
The Trie consists of three claim-* and a
tpiaru ledge has heen uncovered traversing through two claims showing a
width of four Feet carrying galena and
gold, assaying from tin to $100. A
gn.nl ntimher of men are pushing work
by sinking and tunnelling and on* will

from $10 to $12 in gold Development
shows a complete change and as depth
to attained the iron runs out and the
vein matter carries considerable cat-site.
This ore can be smelted at a very lew
rate and is a desirable commodity for
the Trail smeller to mix with Rossland
and other ores. Drifting shows the
ledge to average eight feet, of which
three are solid ore. The lode is well
defined between two permanent walls
with every appearance of continuance.
Another parallel vein has been discovered three feet wide asssving from $80
to $210 in silver and gold: Driftiug
and sinking show this to be strong and
well defined. Several other discoveries
have been made which (go to show
that several parallel ledges tra vers the
propertv, all of high grade ore, a considerable quantity of which to now
ready for shipping.
The Hailstorm is situated on the summit of a mountain at an elevation of
ty\ow feet. It has a very fine body of
quarts exposed, showing galena and
giving good results ia gold. The vein
outcrops for 400 feet. A shaft todowu
nearly 1(X) feet, which gives improved
values in the ore, the width of the bodv

shipments of ore.
The (ireat Western, four miles from
Mineral City, adjoining the Miily Mac.
has a fine showing of quartz, *l-2 feet
wide aud continuous through this

galena The average assays return $So
jmr ton, half of which is in gold.
The Milly Mac to a group of 12 claims
rite ore carries carbonates, chlorides
and native silver. The main lode is
quarts of great width, and development proves that gold Is largely prevalent in the general assay value.
Au important disoovery has lieen
made ou the divide between Slocan
Lake and Cariboo Creek .the vein being
lo .eet wide, with three feet of clean ore
going $100 lo the ton and four feet of
goon concentrating ore. There is no
question of doubt that the great Slocan
stiver lodes with their varying values
all pass through the Cariboo Creek, yet
carrying all the values of the Slocan,
with a large increase of gold.
On the western side of Arrow Lake a
trail of six miles has been made, Criug-
ston creek being half way Three miles
from Pringston creek a valuable mineral belt -was discovered some time since
consisting of a hugh outcrop, heavilv

for 12 miles and showing a width from
20 to UK) feet. This hotly of ore is
pyritite, carrying values iu gold, silver
and copper equal to $20 per ton The
ore resembles that ou the Le Roi and
other-Rossland mines: for two or three
claims on the trend the outcrop shows
out in places through the moss, but
after the timber is passed the ledge has
been exposed by nature. The whole
width of the vein matter is composed
of pyritite, quarts and solid galena in
seams carrying values in gold, silver
and eop|>er, the galena giving heavy
percentages of lead up to HO per cent.
A shaft is being sunk and is in solid ore
snd is indicative of improvement.
Transportation will be easy to deep
water hv aerial tram, which can be constructed ut a moderate cost. Timlier is
plentiful and the facilities are excellent
for all purposes. The ore can be won
and shipped from the rery surface and
all work done will be In pay ore. No
dead work need Ite anticipated, excepting making train for transit. With
this complete ore car be shipped from
the mine at a cost not exceeding 10
cents per ton. An enormous quantity
of ore can be won at little cost and
shipped continuously.
Ton miles from Arrowhead is Thotnp-1
son's Landing, reached by the C. IV ft I
hosts, this being the quickest route to
Trout Lake City. This is one of the
latest camps, but at the same time one
ofthe most promising. Although but
little of the district bas been prospected
sufficient has been done to prove the
existence of very rich leads of gold,
silver, copper ana lead. From Thompson's Landing to Trout lake a good
wagon road has been made, a distance
ef 12 miles. The country traversed to
one very favorable to the existence of
mineral deposits, being a splendid slate
formation, solid and in place, although
nothing so far has been discovered or
any intrinsic value between tbe two
places. On arriving at Trout Lake
City one is surprised at the rapid advance made in building a substantial
town. There are several good hotels
and others in course of erection The
town bas the appearance of being full
of business. From Trout Lake City
the Home Payne syndicate has built��
wagon road through the town of Ferguson, a distance of four miles and thence
on the well-kown Silver Cup Mining
Company's property, or in all eight
miles with good bridges were necessary.
Ferguson is a town with several
hotels and stores, so too, private residences. This town has also sprung- up
within the last few months. The Home
Pavne Company have erected a saw
mill, offices, and other buildings. Development work is being pushed and
ore is being shipped continuously. The
vein matter is largely impregnated
with grey copper, carrying high values
in silver.* Although much money has
been expended the results are not si
encouraging as they might have been
under more effective management
Claims in tho immediate vicinity have
'ieen bonded by the company, but some
of these have been abandoned.
Four miles out of Ferguson a trail
begins where  the  wagon   road ends
This leads to the Ten-Mile, up Gaynor
creek. At a further distance of four
miles some fine showings occur, a ledge
showing galena going high in silver
and lead is traceable throughout several claims Very little work has been
done on any of these, but assessment
shows the ledges as verv promising.
Further on two miles a* discovery has
heen mode by the Lade Bros , consisting of a mixture of iron and quart*-.
Two tons of this was shipped as a test
and resulted in the phenomenal retu rv
of $1,100 to the ton in gold. The work
done so far applies only to the two tons
taken out. Tne gold occurs in several
stringers, but, notwithstanding, gold
is visible all through the stone Without further development the value of
the property cannot be determined as
evidently this is only a pocket and the
ledge ia anything hut defined and has
no indication of permanency Several
other locations have been made on this
line but as yet the lode has not heen
met. From the Tea Mile in another
direction a trail has been made for 19
mil.-*-, to the Abbott group, consisting of
five claims, vis , Heck la. Abbott, King
William, Union and Kamloops. This
wan built at a cost of ***) to bring supplies in, but is impracticable for transportation. So far not much prospecting
has been, done within this 19 miles,how-
over, a good trail can and should be
made to tbe foot of Trout Lake, up
Hailey creek where a gradual rise can
he ensured for a distance of 12 miles,
wh:ch would complete the road to the
head of Hailey. creek, at the foot of
Abbott Hill This could be constructed
at a cost not exceeding $15,000, and
would open up much unexplored but
valuable country. Another feasible
route could be made traversing HaU
creek to the Duncan river, a distance of
four miles, thence down the Duncan
where steamer transportation can be
secured at the Big Jam.
The  Abbott  mine has a very fine
showing nt an elevation of ft,S00* feet I
On the Abbott claim a tunnel has been I
driven K38 feet to intersect at a depth of'
100 ft.   The main ledge is being expos-j
ed higher up and in width is from 12 to
16 feet trending N W. and S. E, with
four feet of clean galena, carrving carbonates and grey  copper.    The  re
mainder of the ledge to concentrating.
Results give over $10.) iu silver and 75
per cent, in lead This ledge to traceable through the Heckla. Abbott, King
William and Union. The vein occurs
in a contact of lime and slate. The
general formation of the eountry to a
fine, soft brown slate. A belt of limestone, a mile in width, intrude* through
the slate and is continuous right along
the country for miles. This intrusion
is the very foundation of the country.
On the King William, in a direct line
with the Abbott, tbe lode outcrops 8Q
feet high, and is 20 feet wide, tlw ledge
being a tine laminated quarts, carrying
grey copper and galena. The eountry
eing bare of undergrowth and timber
the outcrop is so distinct that it can be
seen for miles with tbe naked eye running as true and straight as a die.
Four hundred feet lower down on the
King William an outcrop of quartz
three feet wide is exposed and cat by a
creek.   About one root of this to solid
Kleua, carrying high values. A tunnel
b been driven, cutting the vain at 90
feet. This is a true fissure, cutting the
slate at right angles, N. E. and S. W.
When this junctions with tbe main lode
the possibilities are great. On the Abbott claims 400 feet higher up another
parallel veia is exposed in the lime belt,
which is regular and well defined right
through the country 10 feet wide, half
of which is solid galena. One hundred
feet higher another ledge is exposed
from six inches to a foot in width of
��tleua impregnated with grey ore.
hese lodes are all strong, passing
through the tour claims of tne Abbctt
group into the Wagner group, viz.,
Lucife, Francis Jewel, Emma Fraction,
?ueen Marv. Princess Marie, Lardeau
raction, Lardeau, McCartney Fraction, Duncan and Ella. All these claims
are on the same line. A tunnel has
been driven on the Francis Jewel, cutting the lode at 40 feet. On the Queen
Mary and Princess Marie open cuts expose' the continuation of the ledge,
carrving identical values. On tne
Lardeau the solid galena is exposed on
the surface and traceable right through
the Heckla into the Duncan. In all
there are four claims on the main ledge.
Tbe outcrop on the Duncan to composed of iron rose quartz and seams of
solid galena standing out of the ground
50 feet and being 50 feet wide. A tunnel has been driven 100 feet and a crosscut towards' the dip has been completed
45 feet, cutting the same continuous
hotly of ore 50 feet from the mouth of
the tunnel. A good working winze has
heeu snnk following dowu the vein at
an angle of 55 degrees. At this depth a
crosscut has been driven 10 feet towards
the hanging wall A fine body of ore
has been met with, carrying the 'same
mineral of solid galena and grey copper.
Another property running parallel
with the Duncan and known as the
Merry has a very fine showing of galena
going 70 per cent in lead and 180 ounces
in silver. This occurs in the lime belt,
is four feet wide and continues through
the claim into another location known
as the Bannockburn. also carrying
identical values in a lode exposed on
the surface. For permanency and vast
bodies of valuable ore the Lardeau will
be a very large shipper as soon as railway transportation is open and as it is
now almost settled that the construction
of a railwav is tocomnence verv shortly
snd that it will be built to within a few
miles of the Abbott hill the future of
this vast producing country is assured.

sceue of busy men, horses and machinery, engaged in pushing forwarding the
work of construction.
The scene of the greatest activity at
present is on the eastern division of the
survey between MacLeod and Fort
Steele Junction, a distance of 172 miles
At MacLeod are situated the headquarters of the line, from where all
o^rations are directed. At this point
between HOD and 100 men are continually at work���in the offices, stores,
yards, machine shops, saw mill, and
constructing new buildings. At least
one construction train a day leaves
MacLeod for the end of the steel, which
is now laid to the South Fork of Old
Man's River, about 40 miles from Mac
Leod, where a bridge over 90o feet long
and 187 feet high is being built. A

from Dawson to his paper, the San

awfulness of a Klondike winter:
"The days here have now dwindled
to a dim little ray of light; the sun is
sulking away back yonder somewhere
behind the broken Klondike steeps, snd
the huge, bare, white back of Quarts
mountain. We bsve not seen his cheery

solemn widowhood right up overhead *

I aro like a wary old rat in a trap. The
whiteness and silence are of a kind that
I abhor, and tbe thought of my warm

Assessment Commissioner Fleming is
considering s proposal for ths establishment of nickel smelting works in Toronto. The scheme to being promoted by
Messrs. George Faulkner and William
Parsons, who represent Mr. R. J.Tough,
a capitalist with extensive interests in
the nickel district around Sudbury.
Mr. Fleming has been ssked to name Ibe
inducements tbat Toronto will be prepared to give in return for the establsh-
mentof large nickel refineries in Toronto,
it has been pointed out to bim tbat the
annua) output of tbe Sudbury district
exceeds $H,000,000, sod at present it is
refined in the United States. It was also
pointed out thst if sn export duty were
placed upon ore and matte tbe nickel
would be refined in Csnada. The cooperation of the citv was also solicited to
bring pressure to near on tbe government to place an export duty en crude
ore. The plan outlined embraces tbe
erection of a smelter to cost 1600,000 to
commence with, with possibilities of
auxiliary plants tor the treatment of
lead, copper snd silver ores subsequently, giving employment to s large number
of bsnds.
Assessment Commissioner Fleming
promised to give the matter every consideration, snd will await the receipt of
s formsl proposal from Mr. Tough,

in the show case containing watches,
lockets, rings and articles of much value
were emptied and no clue was left by
the burglars. There to absolutely no
evidence by which the crime may be
traced to tbe perpetrators, but they are
believed to be three in number, strangers

Butte, Mont.���One of the most important strikes made in a mine in Butte for
a long time was made. in the Nippur
last week by the Montana Ore Purchasing company when a 40-foot lead of
copper ore was cut through on the south
cross-cut at the 550-foot level.
The lead, which is 40 feet wide, has
some high grade ore which runs 18 per
cent, copper and high in silver, the balance of the ore being second-grade, but
the whole width of the lead is commercial ore and will be reduced in the
Heinze smelter. Montana Ore Pui-
chasing company people are very much
elated over tne strike, and as the mh e
is in the centre of the richest portion t f
the copper belt, it to thought that the
lead w 11 become richer as the greater
depths are attained, in common -with the
other mines in this vicinity.

SANDON,   B.   C, PER.   12.   im
In the weekly financial reviewed
January 29th, issued by the banking
house of Henry Clews A Co., Wall
Street's head institution, we are given
an insight into the financial policy
of the McKinley administration as
mapped out by the money trust of
"Wall Street. Speaking of the intro
duction of the Teller resolution in
Congress Mr. Clews says:
"The revival of the silver agitation in Congress, in connection with
the resolution of Senator Teller* has
for its purpose making it imperative
on the part of the government to
recognize the word "coin," contained
in the United States bonds, as meaning either gold or silver as the money
in which both principal and interest
shall be payable. It is not at all
likely, however, that this new attack upon the government credit will
pass into law. Asa matter of fact, it
is absolutely impossible during the
present administration.
"President McKinley's pronounced
stand, as expressed in his address to
the National Manufacturers' Association for the maintenance of the
world's best money as tbe standard
for this country, was brayely and
brilliantly uttered. There can be no
doubt hereafter as to where our levelheaded executive stands on that question. The only position for Republicans and sound-money Democrats to
take now and henceforth is to hack
up the President in his determination
to maintain national honor and integrity."
It will be remembered that McKinley was elected to the presidency
ofthe United States on a platform
pledging the Republican party to
secure, if possible, bimetallism for
tbat republic It will be remember
ed also tbat McKinley as president
appointed a commission to secure for
that country bimetallism, and incompliance with his first message Congress set apart $100,000 to defray the
expenses of said commission in its undertaking. It will again be relnein
berod that McKinley as president
pledged himself before the bimetal-
lists of his party to use every effort to
carry out the platform on which he
was elected. Later this same McKinley as president went before the
National Manufacturer's Association
and declared. himself uncqaivocably
opposed to anything but the -.ingle
gold standard.
Certainly* tbe people of the United
States are in a hard row of stumps,
if, as Henry Clews states, they have
ta depend upon a man like President
McKinley to "maintain national
honor and "intejgrity''----a man who has
deliberately broken hi* party's pledge
ort which he was elected to office, and
one who is bound to serve the intef
est of the financial sharks of the land
at the peril of all other classes.
The people of Canada should do
something to restrain the generosity of
our legislators at Ottawa when mak
ing railway contracts. In a short
time if no change is made the ordinary Canuck will have nothing left ot
his country except the ow>ne he
breathes.     _v-______
Double the wealth will be taken
out this year in Kootenay in comparison with Klondike, a fact that few
people in tbe world are cogniiant of.
Last month the mineral production of Southern Kootenav wis only
exceeded by three States in the Un
ion, and not a brass band played.

If the statements contained in the
Ottawa despatch prove to be correct Sir
Charles Tup per will certainly aoccupv
curious position before the people of
Canada. Rut it is improliahle that he
haa committed himself in any such manner, lo the first place he is far too
a*tute a man not to see what the con-
sequences of auch an act on his part
would be: and in the second place the
trade-mark of tbe pure canard is carried
in the statement that Uie British Collim-
b��f government haa granted the Klondike Trading and Transportation Co. a
permit f>r the sale of 60,000 gallons of
whiskey. That ia nonsense and, as the
common phrase is, "gives the whole
thing a*ay." Of course there must tie
some foundation for the report, and no
doubt tlwre ia very keen competition
among the companies for the privilege
of selling whiskey in the Yukon district,
hot what authority the writer' of the
telegram had for using Sir Charles Tup-
per's name as he has done will not be
clear until further reports arrive. It is
probable either a joke or a mistake.

Wm. Btakemore, General manager ef
the Crow's Neat Paaa Coal Company,
Limited, in an interview with a representative of the News-Advertiser last
week stated that he had just returned
from a trip to England and Soaland,
where he had been for the purf-osoof
ordering material for the mines. The
directors had decided lo adopt the
polity of purchasing everything possible in Ihe way of supplies in Canada.
Jnit a large amount of ihe material
required cannot be obtained in tho*
country, and consequenily haa to be
obtained elsewhere
Mr Blakeuiore has also recently made
a close inspection of the most modem

Presbyterian Ordination.
Tbe ordination of Mf. J. A.'Cleland to the ministry of the Presbyterian church took place last Wednesday evening in the Virginia ball.
The hall was well filled,   The Presbytery of Kamloops was represented
hy the Rev. Mr. Glassford of Trail,
Rev. Mr   Gandier of Rossland, and
Rev. Mr. Frew of Neh-on, and Mr
Karney of Knslo.   The   Rev. Mr.
Frew preached an able and appropriate sermon on tbe words: "I was
glad when they said unto me: Let us
go into the house of the Lord."   Thc
ordination then took place according
to the form  of the   Presbyterian
church.     Mr.   Glassford   followed
with tbe charge to the newly-ordained minister and Mr.dandier delivered the charge to tbe people.   At thc
conclusion of the service refreshments were served by thc ladies of
the congregation. The refreshments
were provided solely by the Ladies
Aid Society and a general invitation
was issued.    The gathering was
a representative one, members of the
different churches in the city being
present.   A very pleasant time was
spent.   Mr. Gandier in his address
to tbe people congratulated them on
the privilege which they enjoyed in
having such  a  beautiful   and comfortable hall for their meetings, and
referred to the kindness of Mr. Harris
in granting to them the n-** of the
hall.   Mr. Fallows looked after the
musical part of the  proceeding in
his usual happy way, and was fortunate in securing the kind assistance
of members of other church choirs.
William Homely, a section man on
the K. A 8. was serious.'y injured by
h snowsHde near Bear Lake on Sun
day morning. He was brought to
Sandon and is on a fair way to recovery.
There seems to be little doubt hut
what En)mens can make gold out of
silver. Such an invention would
raise thc price of silver to $10 per
ounce, and create a hum around
Sandon louJ enough to wake up the
dead, and Three Forks. Money,
bright and shining, would grease
thc wheels ol commerce to such an
extent that even our local content,
could afford to have brains, and run
ite office on tlie Union, instead of the
'ta-ab" system.
