Saga. He In Not Responsible for the
Cholera Scare.
The following letter from J. W.
Brcchtel, who was the original
source of the story regarding cholera
in Sandon, was received by J. S.
Harding Tuesday. He disclaims all
authorship of the newspaper reports,
and puts the blame where The Pat-
streak put it, on the sensational
newspaper and the space writer in
Tacoma, Sept. 19,1897.
Mr. J. S. Harding, Sandon, B. C:
I have received three papers with
a glowing account of my description
of Sandon in. lam very sorry so
much has been made out of so little.
I simply wrote my wife there was a
fever in Slocan City, instead of Sandon, aud that a few were dying,
and from an oversight she read it
Sandon. A reporter called at the
door shortly after the receipt of the
letter and 'inquired in regard to the
health of thc people in Sandon, and
she simply told the facts as stated
above; that was all the information
he received.
In regard to cholera being there
and people fleeing for their lives,
and the sanitary conditions of tlie
city, and also the closing of the
mines, were startling news to her
when she read it in the papers, as
that that was her first knowledge of
it. He has simply received the information from some other source,,
Eut the whole matter in as though I
ad written It all. I was very sorry
to learn of all this commotion, and
through such a simple thing. A reporter can get one into pretty serious trouble, especially when ' there
has heen so little cause for it all.
The day before my arrival here it
came out in the News, headed ''Sandon doomed" and a lot more equally
as startling. My wife was so worked
up over it, she saved the paper for
me to read and I immediately had it
corrected; that it was Slocan City
and not Sandon where the fever was
and I supposed that was the end of
it. Imagine my surprise on receiving those papers with such an account of utter falsehoods. It is very
likely I would start such stories as
were stated in those headings when
I know* what a good condition everv
thing is kept in about thc town.
Am sorry it has happened, and will
you kindly let people know the
straight of this affair, and vou will
greatly oblige me. Please show this
letter to the editor of the Sandou
paper.   Respectfully,
J. W.'Brbchtel.
Netoapsper at Trout Lake.
J. J. Langstaff, formerly with the
Paystrkak, haa shipped material to
Trout Lake City aud will shortly
commence the publication of the
Trout Lake Reporter. Mr. Lang-
staff says that the refusal of the Ferguson people to give the Home-
Payne company a block of land for
a mill has caused the company to
start a rival town four miles further
up, but that Trout Lake City Is now
the most likely point.
India Excited About Slleer.
Lovdok, Sept. 21.���The Standard
giblishes this morning a financial
tegram received In tbe city from
Bombay which says that tbe silver
market i�� excited there and silver Is
In strong demand, consequent upon
the up-country liasars anticipating1!
that the Bank of England will be a
buyer at an early date, while it is
also believed that a further import
duty is Imminent, and that possibly
the Indian mints will lie reopened.
The telegram farther says that
the price has risen in Bombay 7|
rupees per 100 tolas since last Thursday. 	
Prank  Golden   Narrotcltj  Escapes
Being Perforated.
Last Monday Frank Golden went
up to the Payne mine to make collections, and as this necessitatt-s
cashing the miners' checks, he took
along quite a sum of money. As he
was returning in thc evening an attempt was made to hold him up, a
little below where the new tramway
crosses the road.   He related his ex-
r*rience as follows: "It was ahout
o'clock and quite dark as I passed
the tramway. 1 had about $300
with me. and white riding along th*'
thought that some om* might attempt to rob me suddenly came into
my mind. Almost immediately after
I heard a noise ahead at the side of
tbe road against the mountain, and
a man stepped out and commanded
me to stop. The h<��r*e was loping,
and I threw myself on the opposite
side, hit the horse with the reins,
and rushed by the man just aa a
shot went through the space I would
have occupied had I lieen sitting upright. About 400 yards farther on
the saddle turned and threw me off,
but I stopped the horse and was
soon in Sandon. I have an idea who
the man was, but will not do anything till I am sure.*'

On August 15, 1805, Dr. J. E. Brouse
opened the Slocan Hospital. It was
then a dubious undertaking because of
the scarcity of working mines in this
section and the small resident population, and for the first year it waa an up
hill job to keep Us doors open and -rive
to those who were its patients the
necessary care and attention. Its record for the first year was 68 hospital
patients and 825 outdoor patients.
Last year the hospital record excelled
that of the previous year two to one and
the. number of outdoor patients more
than doubled. In 180 i-7 there were IIS
indoor or hospital patients and tm outdoor patients.
Dr. Brouse has made the institution a
financial success but its success in this
respect is insignificant indeed as com-
Eared with the success achieved in
ringing back to health and happiness
the hundreds who sought medical and
surgical aid. Of the total number of
hospital patients treated surirical ami
medical, and many of them have been
critical cases, 213 in all, there have
been nine deaths to record, five of which
since Dec. 4, 18&j. Three of these
patients were al deaths door before they
> were taken to the hospital and died a
few hours after being admitted. Of
the 213 indoor patients 94 were surgical
and 119 medical; and of the 119 medical
cases*35 were typhoid and 22 pneumonia,
the rest comprising various ailments.
So successful and convenient has the
hospital been found that all the mines
in the division are subscribers. Incases
of slight ailments the men are doctored
at the mine, medicines being furnished
bv the hospital, but in cases ot serious
sickness, the afflicted are brought at
once to the hospital.
So extensive has the hospital work
grown that offices have been established incut.
at Slocan City, in charge of Dr. Glbhs,
and at Sandon, in charge 'of Dr. Pohl.
Up to the present time the hospital
building has not been what it ought,
but was the best that could be secured
at the time of ita establishment. So
-mccessfal haa it been, however, that
Dr. Brouse has heen enabled to erect a
new hospital.
The new building is one of extraordinary beauty of architecture and design; so commodious, so airy, so light
and sunny and all so well planned for
health giving. The ground plan of the
main building covers 82x40 feet. It is
two and one-half stories and in it are
the offices, dispensary, private wards,
operating; room, linen closets, dining
room and reading room. Adjoining on
the south is a two-story wing 92x82, for
the surgical and medical wards, and on
the rear a two-story aunex for the kitchen and attendants rooms, closets, etc.
Around the front and side of the main
building extends an eight-foot balcony
which is reached from both the medical
and surgical wards on the upper and
lower floors. In the basement is a large
cold storage room and furnace room
from which hot and cold air can be sent
to any room in the building, the radiators enabling the attendants to keep
the house at an even temperature at all
times. No room in the building lias
less than two large windows and the
medical and surgical wards have eight.
The ventilation of the building is perfect. Over each window a ventilator
lowers from the top and in the medical
ward a large escape Is placed In the
ceiling, which permits a fresh air eutf-
rent at all times from the window tops
to a like escape placed below the eaves.
In the garret, which is a large, welt
lighted room, trap  doors have been
{ilaccd in the walls to enable easy access
rora the roofs of the wing and annex
in case of emergency.
The buildingis hard finished throughout, large double doors open to the
surgical and medical wards, and the
stairway to the second floor would admit six abreast. It is lighted throughout with electricity and each bed is pro*
vlded with an electric bell attachment.
Speaking tubes are run from the upper
hallway to the kitchen and dining room
and a tripple-deck dumb elevator is provided to carry the foot! to the upper
Each floor Is provided with bath rooms
and there are four dry closets in connection, in which medicated oakum is
Opening ott of the hallway on the first
floor is the doctor's office, the operating
room, dispensary, surgical ward, baggage room, linen closet, bathroom,
dining room, and adjoining the latter
the kitchen and necessary store rooms.
(Inthe upper floor are three private
wards, the medical wards* room*for the
attendants, and, looking out upon the
lake, the convalescents reading mom.
The building waa planned and built
by contractors Sutherland A Rae, who
(.flowed great experience in such work in
utilising every foot of space and in the
excellence of the workmanship through-
out. It is indeed a haven Of real and
health for the sick of Slocan; every convenience and comfort that the mind can
conceive has lieen placed in it, ami ita
location, overlooking tlie city and lake
beyond, is without equal.
l>r. Brouse, alter several years of
hard, and ceask*** work, has sttct-eedetl
in winning for himself tbe encomium
of all, for the successes he has won in
tlie sick room as well as on tlie hospital
just completed. It is the pride of the
Kootenay and. as a private institution
excels anvlliing of tlie kind in the
country, lie has aatttxiated wiUt him a
staff of assistants that beapeek for the
hospital a verv suc**ea*ful career.
Miss Maggie Stack, an experienced
hospital nurse, lias been engaged aa
matron, and Mis* Una McKay is chef
d* cusine. Mr. Martin T. Welde baa
won the friendship of all the -wUents
by his success as superintendent of the
institution, and Mr. Frank K. Shook,
dimtenser, will never be forgotten by the
sick and injured who have been the
objects of hia kind and generous treat-

succumbed to the terrible cold or con
life. A committee of sixty vigilantswas
chooscn by lot to search out the crimi
aal  and punish him.   What was the
penalty to be?   There was hut a single
verdict.   Death.
In a tent near the summit stayed a
1rem-hrnaii known as Pierre. His surname was not known. He was low
browed and black eyed and surly, and
suspicion was attracted to him by many
drenmetances. He had no friends and
-veined not to desire them.
At dusk of the day upon which the
l'��*.> ��f provisions had been made known
the vigilantes climbed to the Frenchman's tent. They went silently, and
near the tent paused. A light burned
within and upon the canvass, like a puppet Shadow, was cast the form of the
Frenchman. He was stooping ctyse to
the ground. "He's burying the grub,"
whisjH-ml one of the vigilantes to his

pector wlio had beeu robbed. Pierre
started up at the appearance of his
visitors. His movement for a gun was
arrested hv a sharp word of warning-,
and the Frenchman stood as though
petrified, his eyes riveted on the mu_.de
of four revolvers.
, The was no need of reaching further.
I lit a rude hole dug from the hard earth
in the center of the tent lay the sack of
tlourand bacon. Their owner recognized the marks and identified them as
his propertv.
Without "a word the Frenchman was

;Uimg for the purposcwas tied hand and
foot.   He begged piteously fbr mercy,
and his black whiskers stood out on a
bee {tale as tbat of a corpse. He appeal-
ed to hearts of stone; there  was no
s tftening light in the eyes of his cap-
t>rs.   They carried him out and to a
pole before his fragile habitation they

vigilantes left.  A life for a sack of flour
and !'*> pounds of bacon.
The limp form, bleeding from  six
wounds, hung there all night, and the
next dav it hung, and the next.   Over
the trait a short distance away many
men passed. When they looked toward
the lonely tent and saw its sentinel,
they averted their faces and hurried by

The third day came and there was
something more'than dread in the air.
It was the sick en ing stench of a putrify-
ing human body.   It was a horrible
smell, that turned men's hearts to lead:
Late on that third afternoon two men
stayed in their journey to finish the
work of the vigilantes.   They unbound
the carrion mass and lugged it further
up the hill.   They could not wait to di��"
a grave,  but  they piled stones high
above the body, and perhaps with a
muttered prayer left it there to rot.
The rock monument is there as a
warning to others who, like Pierre,
hope to reach the Yukon with no other
outfit than a seared conscience, and all
the laws of Alaska will not have a more
restraining effect than the smell which
is wafted over Skagway trail by breezes
from the rock pile.

The development of the resources

The present great strike of miners
in tbe coal regions of Pennsylvania
is an object lesson to Canada. We
must admit that the United States is
as rich as any country on earth in all

mine at Whitewater, in order to secure
payment mi their contract lor packing
.Some time ago the Ibex   corapanv
made a contrail with Bartlett Bro*. to
pack tKto tons of ore agreeing to furnish
ltsl ton-, a mouth, or pay for the equiv
aleni.     At the same time they were
profuwe *n the l*oa*4ing about the mine,
saying that after  the BOO tons  wtue
down they would have as much more
reailv. that they had a mountain of ore.
The contract was let by  Major S. B.
Steele, of Mil.end. president of the com-
an> and mitarintetidcnt of theNurthwest
Mounted Police; F. Steele. Kaslo, treasurer and manager, and !>.  VY.  King,
Bartlett * brought in a train of mules
for the purpose, ami got down **i tons
the first month But they have been
unable to get any money. They agreed
to let the contract go if they were paid
for the first month I work." So to protect themselves they rented a warehouse, snd as their mules came down
with the last mt torn, instead of putting
it on the cars they put it in their warehouse, and set a man to watch it They
are now waiting a settlement
going to law.
The storv now comes out that I)
King had Major Steele with several of
the mounted jiolice to look at the mine
last summer These gentlemen arc ex-
parts on Indian*, and had men. but their
knowledge of mines is limited to what
thev have heard and read ruder Mr.
Kings   guidance   thev  saw  unlimited
quantities of ore. assaying great
value*. Thev were taken into rabbit
littles at numerous point* and ihoa n the
fine ����ro in sight. They were greatly
excited at the prospect, and anxious to
shipping   commenced  at  once.
~ ' - - *** Steele, a resident
friend of Kings's,
On Sunday last Alex. Smith, of the
.Surprise mine received a letter from
J. L. Pierce, dated at Lake Bcnnet,
Aug. 29.   In the letter Pierce states
that he got across the pass without any
great difficulty, and with the assistance
of Indian packers had gotten all his
supplies down to the lake where he had
secured a boat and was to start on the
trip down the river about Sept. 2nd.
E- C- Coy, who left Kaslo about the
same time as Pierce went bv Skagway
and the White Pass and at'the time of
writing was ten miles  behind.    Hib
Porter, also a Kasloite was on the same
trail and pretty well along but the letter
does not definitely state his whereabouts.

Old-timers in the Slocan will remember a woman commonly known as Fool
Hen, who prospected in this section during 1892. Caroline Miller was her proper name, and Charles Miller, said to be
her husband, cooked at the Idaho and
other mine*. On the 22nd of last February Miller murdered this woman at a
saw mill town on the coast called Port
Blakeley. Miller got twenty years for
doing the deed. If Mrs. Miller's heirs
will communicate with thia office they
will learn of something to tlieir advan-

is another evidence of how Slocan properties are appreciated by the moneyed
men of England.
The -exchange Stocked.
Through the agency of Bashdall &
Fauquier the terms of the Exchange
sale made in July have been alteaed
and the property has been stocked and
placed on tbe London market. The
force on the property will be immediately doubled and the company are
confident that the Exchange will be one
of the best mines in the district.

A lady who is a city missionary he-
came very much interested in a very
poor, but apparently respectable Irish
family named Curran, living on the top
floor of a great tenement-house in the
slum district.
Every time she visited the Currans
the missionary was annoyed by the
staring and the whispering of the other
women living in the building. One day-
she said to Mr8.��*Curran:
Your neighbors seem very curious to
know who and what I am and the nature of my business with you.
They do so," acquiesced Mrs. Curran.
Do they ask you about it?
Indade they do, ma'am.
And do vou tell them?
Faith, thin, a' oi do not.
What do you tell them?
Oi just tell thim you are me dressmaker, an' let it go at that.

The earliest known coinage oi gold that
is authenticate.! was ahout 800 years he-
fore the (Christian ere, in tlie time of
Milletue, and it ie very well-known that
the Sicilians, 4)0 years before tbe birth
of Christ, used the metal for coinage
purposes. Long before that period, however, it had been used in art and manufacture, and years before the lime of
King Solomon, as ancient chronicles will
prove. In the earlier centuries placer
mining in Southwestern Europe and n
the Ural mountains were well established, and there are statistics of gold mining in Asia Miner during all the early
centuries. There is nothing, however,
authentic in the way of figures previous
to Uie discovery of North and South
America, bnt since tbat time thc world's
production of gold per year is pretty well
The really big discoveries are of this
century, however, beginning in California in 1847; in Australia in 1854, and
then in British Columbia in 1858, afterward followed by neW discoveries in
Queensland and New South Wales, in
the Transvaal in 1868, in Wiwatersrand
in 1886, followed by the building of Johannesburg, and now there are frequent
discoveries of the Metal not only in
South Africa, but in many of the Western States. There have been no great
placer finds, however, such as that in
Alaska in recent year*, and it is multiplicity of these placer findings and tin-
ease with which the gold is obtained
that has sent so many prospectors to the
Northwest territory. The entire production of gold in the United States from
1700 to 1848 atnouted to only $34,000,000.
The next year alone 140,000,000 of the
metal waa taken out of California soil,
and since that period a total of 13,360,-
000,000 haa been mined in tlie United
States. After the great discovery in
California in 1848 Uie product of the
mines there ran up to more than $50,-
000,000 a year, but this waa beaten by
Australia, where, in oight years, from
1851, a total of $5M,000,000 was mined,
or an average of more than $60,000,000 a
year. One nugget found in the Australian gold fields weighing 146 pounds wss
shown to Queen Victoria in 1868. After
the first ten years in California, the gold
output of this country became steady,
as new fields in other Pacific coast states
averaged the losses caused hy tint failure
of older times to develop more ofthe
There are great losses m gold mininc,
and the mere statement that a -*ntii
lightly in excess of ftf ,M*0,t*00 in sold
was mined in California last year does
not carrv with it the significance that attend* the cost of mining. To be precise
in figures the value of gold ore mined in
California was $13,^*0,529 and the cost of
getting it was $12,506*555. Of course
there was a prfit on some mine* and a
loss on others, but thi* is the average,
which shows that mining, like many
other industries, is at time* very costly
for capital. It really coat MO cents to
produce a dollar of mined gold in California last vear. It coat $3.05 in Alabama and $5.56 in Wyoming to produce
a dollar of bullion from tbe mines. In
Colorado the total mined wa* $23,000,000
in round numbers at a cost of $13,500,000
so that it cost 50 cents there to mine a
dollar of bullion. In Montana the cost
was over 45 cents. In 18*10 total 'gold
and silver mined in thi* country was
$99,283,752, ��nd the capital invented was
$486,323,338 or S4-**J of capital for every
dollar of bullion produced. Putting it in
another wav, there was only 2U centa of
bullion produced for every dollar of capital. The total expenditures in mining
this sum was $63.451,188. Tlie amount
of expense per dollar of bullion gold ami
silver was 61 cent. More than three
thousand mines produced less than $10,-
000 each. Only twenty-eight mine* of
the 6,000 produced over half a million
each; fewer than fifty produced between
$'250,000and $t0.ttt*0. It is estimated that
1.000 non-profit producing mine* were
worked last year, and that there were
1,266 idle or abandoned. California has
now first place in gold production, but
Colorado is close behind, and the two
produce  an a^regale of $27,000,000 of
fold per year. California being ahout
l,(JtJ0,000 ahead of Colorado. The total
production now in this country atr*eraget>
about $35.1*00.1 W) a year, althou_fh last
year the production wa* $46,640,000.

but no uwlventurer* went there to find the

(ten. Sutter and other* made Uie first
discovery in 1847. In 1848 the output nf
the California field* was $.*,,t*ut,iiis.i. In
the next five years a total of ���2i*,UV"V

State. From the period of the first di*-

total gold yield of California has bean
$1,301,000,000, hut in no year since 1K64
has the total in twelve months gun*

The oil and gas deposits in South East
Kootenay aro the property of the Kootenay Coal Company, Montreal, who are
the proprietor* of tlie coal fields in South
East Kootenay known as the Crow* Nest
Para coal field*. These oil and gas deposits are in the extreme sooth east of
East Kootenay, close to tlie international
boundary, and are not confined to East
Kootenay alone. They also exist in the
extreme south west of Alberta, on the
eastern side of the Rockies. These deposit* are believed to extend beyond the
boundary line and exist in the State of
The deposit* were not known until
1891. They were discovered by tbe Stony
Indians.   This tribe of Indian* live in
the Morleyreservation, near Banff,which
is intersected by the C. P. Railway.
The summer hunting ground* of Uiese
Indians extend along the foothills and
eastern slope* of the Rockies.   Occas-
ally they crossed through  the South
Kootenay Pas* in the Rockies and came
out into the Tohac<*o  Plains  in   East
Kootenay.   Rarely, however, did they
do this, as they would be apt to come
into conflict with the Kootenay Indian*,
whose hunting grounds were oh the west
side of the Rockies. This pass is forty
mile* south of the Crows Seat. It* summit is seven mile* from tlie boundary-
These oil field* on both sides of the
Rockies were visited by I>r. Selwyn, of
tbe (reological survey of Canada, in IftRl,
���and he gives* description of them,which
is farm accurate, in the summary report
of 1891.
The deposit* in Alberta are on the
Cameron Fall* Brook, some distance
from it* mouth. The brook empties into
Waterton Lake, a large *beet of water iu
Alberta aad right on the international
line. The oil is seen on the stream and
where there are pool* there is no difficulty in skimming off in a very Short
time a sufficient quantity to fill a bottle.
Near where the oil ia foiind in a stream,
a rocky reef of grey silicious dolomite
crosses tlie creek and rise* into a steep
bluff on tlie left bank; on the right
bank, seven or eight feet above the creek,
a broad, thick timbered flat extend* for
150 yard* to the base of the bordering
mountains, which culminate six miles
to tbe south west at the boundary monument, 0,000 foot above sea level. No
work whatever has been done to test the
nature of the oil souroe*. Dr. Selwyn
recommends the expenditure of a small
outlay for some shallow sinking or boring
on the fiat above described, in order to
fully test the oil sources. So far as at
present known these are the only oil
sources in Southern Alberta. The principal deposits, however, are on the west
side of the Rockies in Kislineena and
Sage Creek*, which are tributaries of
the Flathead River. Tbe Sage Creek
join* the Flathead about ten miles north
of the Kishneena.
Crossing from Uie south, alter leaving
the pass, the first oil deposit* are in the
Kishneena Creek. These are found
about four miles north of Um 49th parallel and are where trail comes down
to the level of the stream. At Uiis place
are the remains of a beaver dam. Here
are ledges of dark-blue slate, dipping
east by north. Uftibg layer* of this
slate at and below the water, a quantity
of (lark-green circular patches of oil rise
to the surface, and a precisely similar
result followed by atirrimr up the mud
In the bottom of tbe pool7 Oil is said,
by the Stony Indians who frequent this
region, to occur at other points. Tbe
Kishneena joins tbe Flathead River in
Montana, ahout four mile* south of the
international boundary. The beaver
dam oil is ol a dark-greenish-black and
does not apparently differ much from
that of Canwroo Falls Creek. Prelimln-
inery tests have been made here by sinking a shaft in ths "hales st the beaver
dam pool and hy boring on the sand v
and gravelly fiat country about two and
a half miles noth of the boundasy line.
The next deposit* are in Sage Creek,
which loaves tlie mountain* tiiat border
it* upper course in au north easterly
direction up to the main watershed some
twelve rnih-s distant, and hers, at the
edge of Ute water, on the left bank, dark
flinty shale* like those at the I reaver
dam pool on Uie Kishneena. Directly
the layers of this rock are wised, the oil
rises and spread* over tbe surface of the
water in such abundance that a short
time suffices, wiUi tbe aid of a tin cup,
to collect a bottle full.
Ijem than half a mile higher up, on
Uie right bank and on the opposite or
west side of the valley, oil i* again found
issuing from Uie base ol the bank or
drift, which has here filled Uie valley
and causes the stream to make a sharp
bend eastward to the base of the opposite
mountain. Every stone on the bed of
the creek on being broken or rubbed
S'ves out a strong odor of petroleum,
teoil collected here differs entirely in
appearance from those of the Camerion
nil* or Kishneena Creeks. Some of it
is of a light lemon-yellow, but most of it
nearly the color of pale brandy and with
a very powerful petroleum odor.
.In Sage Creek are also deposit* of
natural gas. targe quantities of which
escape from Uie cracks and erv-jvfces in
the rocks. These escspe* are easily
lighted by a match, and a kmg flame
rise* upwards. No test* have been mad*
on these gas deposits to ascertain Uteir
extent, Forming tbe aame conclusions
from similar data given elsewhere, as iu
the Pennsylvania coal fiekl* and gas deposits, these deposit* should he of great
extent. It ha* now been ascertained
what the Grows Nest coal fields are,
and, following the aame i*ewaonaMe deduction, these oil and gas deposits should
bo ol great extent and considerable
value. Small a* the work haa been done
on the oil deposit*. sufficient has been
done to prove their large extent and
great richness.' ,
Tbe surface iadieaUon* are maniv al)
alike. Th eoil, which is petroleum, ia
not ei the same character, that of East
Kodtenay I* a purer and oil. Tlie Sage
Creek ml ha* been proved to lie the
purest that ha* been found.
The company who own tbe lagest portion of tiiese oil and gas deposit* I* about
to undertake extensive development
work upon them in the course of next
season, which will fully prove their
value ami extent.- East Kootenav Miner
The town is full of men wantimr
work. Men who have heen lured to
thi* country by the C. P. R. agents in
the east, who with stories of lack of
harvest band* and the prospects of high
wages in Manitoba have induced thousands of meu to come west. Manv of
the excursionists had barely monev
enough to pay their fare here, and are
in a bad state, having to beg* their llv.
ing from house to house and sleep in
the open air or in barn* and stable* in
the town*. Manitoba has enough res*
ident working-men to handle her crop,
and the effect of this {treat influx of
labor wil be the lowering- of wages, as
many of the stranger* are wining to
work for their board, or just enough
money to take thorn home iu Xtmuuber,
On Monday morning a number of them
having' become desperate determined
to go east whether the C. P. R. wished
to carry them wlthont tickets or not,
boarded No. 2 and wonld not be put off.
Tbey were greeted by about sixty of
their friends who hadf taken the train
by storm at Brandon. The men were
quite orderly, hut determined that the
C. P. R. should make amends for bringing them out by taking them home free.

Tho Pi-esldoitt of tho Bank of B.
BI. A. PsWoraWo to Kootenai*.
A general meeting of the proprietors of the Bank of British North
America win held in London recently at which the president, Mr. E. A.
Hoare, made a statement of the
bank's affairs, which has special reference to this district. As is noticeable in everything coining from a
distance, the wide-spread advertiser
ment of the Rossland district colors
all ideas regarding Kootenay. As
reported in the London Money Mar-'
ket Review of September 4, the report is interesting as giving the
opinions of an eminent London capitalist regarding the prospects of
inining ih British Columbia.
After giving a summary of the
finances of the bank, with the statement that the dividend paid fin* the
first half of I89t�� was two per cent,
and for the first half of 11*17 was two
and one-half per cent., Mr. Hoere
ha id*
"In British Columbia a branch has
been opened at Slocan City, in the
Kootenay mining district/and we
now have live branches established
in that district.   Mining in tbe Kootenay ia making rapid progress, and
the gold production is showing a
steady increase.   The production of
tbe precious metals for the year 1896
amounted to no leas than ��771,000
sterling, and  the output is steadily
increasing.     Amongst the mines,
there are no doubt good and bad, as
in every, other field, but generally
speaking, whore there is sufficient
working capital to ensure s\*stera-
atic development, for it is not a poor
man's country, and expensive plant
and machinery are required, tmccess-
fal   results   should   be obtained.
Where labor and capital go trade
follows, and if the success of the
Kootenay gold fields is oaee assured
the prosperity of the province must
inevitably be   greatly   enhanced.
Our business there is so far satisfactory.   Although tbe branches most
recently estabUsbed are still onlv in
the exfjerlmental stags, we trust
that ere long they may all become
profitohle narts of our system.   Wo
recogtdae hilly that banking in these
mining camps is sobjcet to peculiar
risks and temptations, and that estrone vigilance must be exorcised
by oa all to avoid making mistakes.
It is quite possible that In these early
days of tbe goad field we may not in
every case have selected the best
places, for our branches.   Should
this prove to be the case, wo shall
not besitate to withdraw before any
serious expenditure bas been incurred,   l-he ostatdttwmcnt of these
branches haa entafled an immense
amount of additional work and anxi-
ety upon our general manager, but
all hie arrangements, ft-om the Important matter of selecting the ott-
cere to take the management of the
new branches down to the smallest
details, have baea carried threugh
by him with hie usual premptitttde
and energy, and compfetely to oor
Mtisfactloa.   Ia. condueloo, I may
say. that In the latest telegraphic
advices received Just   before Ute
meeting of the court from our gen
oral paaacor, ha status that the
proapeote toi-ooghout tne dominion
this autumn are brighter than for
atimc ���years pact.   We trust these
hopes which he thus expresses may
be fulfilled,  loading to Increased

Mr. Mafaala Writaa of Slocan.
J. K. Molnnls, editor and proprie
tor of the Resrina 8tandard, who has
been in the Kootenay eeveral weeks,
but returned home laat week, haa
written an interesting account of his
impressions while here for his paper.
Mr. Mclnnis writes glowingly of
Slooan, preeent and future, but some
of his figures show unfamiliarity
with mining. He mentions anions*
other Reginans In Sandon, Mr. and
Mrs. Main, Mr. and Mrs. Robertson,
Mr. and Mrs. Neil McLean.
The Famous Uoatt Lieee.
The famous Lovatt lease, which
has caused more trouble and hard
feeling in Sandon than any other
one thing, was read la court laat
week in the case of Lovatt against
Bennett A Carbery, proprietors of
The Denver, fbr cutting wood on
the ground covered by the lease. It
waa a difficult matter to bring out
the contents of the leane, as Mr. Lovatt strongly objected to its being
read In court. The Justices ruled,
however, that it was in evidence*
The lease covers four pages of
type-written copy and a plat. Tho
substance of it is that for the sum of
$MO, and a further consideration of
11.50 per thousand feet of saw timber, the lessee, George W. Lovatt, la
given the right of taking the green
statid.tig.wier on the plat of ground
mentioned, belonging to the Kaalo A
Slocan Railwav company, from
Juno, 18*m, to June, 1900. There
are no rights to the ground conveyed or meant to be conveyed.
The defendants in the case showed
a contract from the railroad company fbr the lot on which the wood wta
cut, and the court hold thtsgsyc
them tlie right to tlw wood* T*oe
case was dismissed with costs on the
g��nt��.   The Justices also sdvifS
Mr. LoVatt that titev would not hear
any more caeca of Ibe same aatuija,
but in the fttture they would have
to be Ukea to tho higher courts.
