about   900  (eel  oi' development

tunnels and a winze connecting
them. Taking it all in all if the
Argo only half fulfill! its   promise
it will be quite sufficient lo mske
it one ofthe best paying little pro
partial in the Rlooan.
A force of  men   will   !�����'   net   to
work on these claims iu the course
of a few days and every effort
mads to put the property on a
���hipping basin with a-little loss of
time as possible.

Six men are  employed   on   the
Mascot, a claim -ituated above the
Kuth. on tin* trail  to   the   Keed eV
Tenderfoot.     This   property    ih
looking very nicely ami   improves
as tin- development  work  is pro-
OSeded   with.     This   property   is
owned by A. ..lutnenaiier. formerly
of the Kuth Mines.
The   Corinth,  a  elaim   situated
on th- ridge  between   the   Keed &
Tenderfoot and the Idaho, is shipping me.     The ore is being   taken
over the  trail   to  tbe Idaho aud
Shipped over the  trainwa*.   to  the
concentrator.      This   property  is
developed hy means of two tunnels
which are now  in over 180 feet
each.     A third tunnel, a   crosscut,
is being commenced some distance
below tbe other two and   it   is ex
pected that the   vein   will   not   be
encountered   mneh   short of 800
feet When the lead is encountered, though, it will have proved the
vein Ui a depth exceeding 350 feet
from the surface. The product of
the C.uinth is a mixture of el can
on* snd concentrates, and present
indications point to the likelihood
of this property developing into a
great shipping proposition. The
ore like (hat of the majority ol
tlie Slocan shippers is high grade.

The Sl-.cau Star will declare
another div identl of $30,000 ill IWO

total amount of dividends paid by

not been f< r the extreme searcitv

full capacity, the total amount of
dividends paid would have been
1400,000 instead of the present

is plentiful, the output from the

pay runnirg expenses. The
amount of ore already taken out.
and the value of the ore in night,
will make this property when it
docs commence to ship, one of the
largest and steadiest producers in
the Slocan. The property is developed by nivalis of six tunnels of
which only three are being worked at the present time. These
tunnels arc connected by metes of
winzes, which are iu ore for their
entire length. During the beginning of the season about fifteen
men were employed but this staff
has been reduced to seven who
will continue to carry on the plans
for development which the owners
of this property have laid out.

We have beard recently that
some amateur newspaper men
were thinking of starting a journal in Sandon. If ihey won hi
attend to their lefl*ittiiutte bum nets*
and support tlie professional journalists now iu the country, the
world would In* better pleased
As a rule journals run by amateurs are failures for s variety of
reasons. Tlie writer bas stood by
the grave of so many Bttcfa journals
that he believes Billy Shakespeare
was right when he Said, "What
fools these mortals be."
Aftkr a certain amount of calm
deliberation we have decided to
buy a new dress for Sandon's
leading paper and otherwise make
it a journal that Will be in complete harmony with -the. com
muniiy in which it is published.
We further intend t<- print a daily
edition just as soon as ciltttntstati
ces will permit us to do SO without running the chance of breaking ourself for telegrams. The job
department will be touched up in
many parts and every efl<��rt made
to furnish work that will appeal
strongly to the lovers of the art
that preserve*-, all othei arts. !><���
not forget this, gentle reader, when
you feel inclined to send your
work to Europe or some other
place where cheap labor is rampant.
The Toronto Telegram, the
squarest ami most put-spoken
journal iu   that   citv.   has the foi
n ���
lowing to say about mining :
'���Xobody would be sbsurd
enough to object to all the publicity which any journal could invito news of the activity in Ihe
mineralized areas  of Canada.
Nor do people expect the average journal to be sufficiently idealistic to refuse the advertisem��*nls
of companies whose main mission
is to unload stork iu over-capitalized claims.
Certain old fashioned people
do not think that honest journals
should rent their news columns
out to any set of gentlemen who
may have the price.

Is this a fast to keepe
The larder lean
And clean
From fat of veals and sheep?
Is it to quit the dish
Of flesh, vet still
To fill
1 lie platter high with fish ?
Is it to fast an hoare,
Or ragged go,
(>r show
A downcast look and sonre?
Xo ! 'tis a fast to dole
Thy sheafe of wheat
And meate,
Unto the hungry soul!
It is a fast from strife.
From old delate.
And hate
To circumcise "thy lite."
To show a hearte grief rent,
To starve thy sin.
Not bin,
And that's to keep thy Lent!

Kresh proofs are continually to
hand ot the ineffectiveness and gen
eral shortcomings ofthe Ontario mining laws. There is, says the Kat
Portage Miner, a matter ot keen public interest in mining circles which
needs ventilation at the present
time. It has so far been the legally
recognized custom for the prospector
finding a vein which he considers
worth taking up to blaze a tree or
post, set it up on the property, and
mark or cut thereon his name and
date of the discovery, then apply to
the department for the property, giving the above details, and, as far as
he can, a sketch showing ic exact
locality. Owing to the very incomplete maps published in this district
there is often considerable latitude in
necessary in the latter. The difficulty ot getting surveyors, owing to
the present demand for their services,
and, in some cases, the remoteness of
the vein and bad weather, makes
access to it difficult. Frequently th<j
claim is "jumped,"' the original prosector's name and marks destroyed,
and a survey made by the first jumper who happens to come that way
with a surveyor in his wake.
"The first discoverer is out of
pocket and loses valuable time and
the juniper profits by both. We know
ot other cases, of which we have the
proofs, where a prospector has been
shadowed by jumpers, his blazes and
marks destroyed, and his property
surveyed within a few days; another
esse, in which a man living and
working upon his claim, which was
an island in Clearwater Hay, was
actually surrounded by survey lines
while at his labor and his property
applied for over his head. This
practice has become the curse of the
country, and a silent determination
to get satisfaction in some way or
other has taken jiossession of our
prospectors. I x*ok ing at it from a j
disinterested ��*oint of view, it dot*
not seem right that the man who does
the ; ioneer work with ax and lobog
gan should be cheated and rohbed of
his just dues.
The trouble seems to be that those
who are doing the underhand work
are acting as agents. The names ol
; tho principals are not, as a rule, ob-
l tamable, but from present indications
we should infer that they consist of
some who, in one way or another, can
pull wires and use influences unap
proachablc by the great majority, and
yet on the other hand, jwse iu public

of the district It legitimate mining
, is to he carried on in the district ami
j the transfer of properties to be quick
ly and satisfactorily arranged this
must be put a stop to at once, or it is
to lie feared the probabilities are that
the miners and prospectors themselves
will apply the remedy which seems
to be unobtainable from the "powers
that Ik*." Public sentiment is strong
on the matter; for there are plenty
of men who are more than willing to
make their livelihood by taking advantage of what they consider flaws
in titles or vulnerable points in the
business of others. It the district was
sitnated some 2000 miles to the note
west these gentlemen would find a
change of air desirable, but, as it is,
the disease exists, and the sooner it

three years in Western Australia,

these camps are declining, have come
to try their luck in the mining centres of British Colvmbia.
The district, they say, has  had a

though a good deal cf gold is still be

of water and cost of transjiort have
all tended towards its breaking up.

The mining laws there are very

If a man locates a claim, siy of 21
acres, he must at once put tour men
to work, one man to every six acres,
al. from $20 to $2b a week and water,
and when pay dirt is struck must put
