The Queen Beee Rood.
Nelson, Aug. 28, '98
E. M. Sandilands,
Dear Sir,
I regret to inform you that the
newly formed government at Victoria declined to consider themselves
bound by promises made  by their
firedecessors in office. Tliey especial-
y refuse any assistance, or even
eromise of assistance towards the
uilding of the new Sandon road,
notwithstanding the fact as poiated
out to them that, acting on the good
faith of the promise we had received,
a considerable amount of money had
already been expended.
Under these circumstances the
Queen Bess company will reluctently
have to give up all thought of baiki-
injj the Sandon road this year. I
hardly need say that I am very disappointed at this termination, which
* was totally unexpected. lean only,
therefore, thank you and the people
of Sandon for tbe trouble taken in collecting subscriptions and in many
other ways assisting the project.
Yours very truly,
C. K. Milbourxe.
The foregoing le'.ter explains itself.
The citizens of Sandon were promised by tlie Turner government half i
the cot of the Queen   Bess warai j
roid. Tbe present government, when
approached upon the subject by Mr.
C. K.   Milbourne,   president of the
Queen Bcsi company, flatly refuse
anv assistance or promise ot aasis
tance whatever.
The Queen Bess road was designed
to give easy access to the Idaho
basin, one of the richest mineral districts in the province. At present it
has no satisfactory means of transportation. From most of the prop
erties the cost of shipping ore comes
very high. From a number of claims
it is practically impossible to ship,
and they wilt no doubt lie idle until
such time as a good wagou road Is
Viewed in tbe light of a business
proposition, the Queen Bess road
would seem to be a first class investment on the part of the Provincial
government. The cost of the road
to the government would, as has before been pointed out in this journal,
be not over |4,C(X). The Provincial
treasury receives in taxes one per
cent of smelter returns. Considering
8100 an average value per ton���and
tbe estimate is conservative tor the
ore of this district���when tho output
of the Idaho basin was increased
4,000 tons by the better facilities
which a good wagon road would
afford the government would be even
on its investment. Whatever was
collected after this would be clear
profit to tbe people of British Col-
There is nothing extravagant
about this reasoning. Tbe Payne
alone has shipped over 3,000 tons In
the last sixty days. During tbe peat
year it has shipped over 13,000 tons.
There is reason to bejieve that .bad
the Payne been at the same disadvantage as some of the Idaho
basin properties its value would
never have been known. There are
many other individual properties in
the Slocan which have during their
existence paid into the Provincial
treasury several times tbe amount
that this road would cost; and there
is no resson to doubt thst equally as
good properties exist in tne Idaho
basin, lacking only transportation
This road has already cost several
of tlie citizens of Sandon considerable
in time and money. The Queen
Bess people have gone to a large expense in anticipation of the benefits
that were to accrue from its construe
lion. The large amounts which several Sandon business men subscribed
is a fair criterion of the benefits
which this road would be to the community. There are two hundred
men at work in the Idaho basin now,
but this is not a circumstance to the
number that might be employed
under more favorable conditions.
Rumors have been persistently in
dlrculation that the X\ P. R. was
making offers and promises of tram
ways to the Idaho basin and wss
using every influence In its power to
prevent the construction of a wagon
road to Sandon which would break
tbe company's monopoly on the bulk
of the ore shipped from Three Forks.
It is a patent fact that Joe Martin
has been sold ont body and soul to
the great corporation since tbe first
day he entered Canadian politics.
Are we to credit tbe refusal of aid
to this meritorious undertaking to
political spleen on the part of our
"worthy" representatives, or to it
the work of the Italian hand of the
great corporation of which Canadians
are made slaves. It most certainly
cannot be due to sound reasoning or
good business ability.
Misleading Reports.
Investigation of Perry Creek by
Mr. Farrell, the well-known Spokane
mining man, go to snow that previous reports on that district have beeu
of s decidedly misleading character.
The reports on Perry Creek were
based on mill tests of 'various clair-s,
a mill being supplied for this p *r-
pose by Montreal capitalists, '/be
mill was bandied by men ignorant
of their work with the result that
barely traces were saved from the
quartz crushed, but on examination
of the tailings and waste around tbe
mill, it was fooni to carry large
values in gold and a rough estimate
shows that the quartz pot through
the mill must have been decidedly
rich. This, together with the favorable reports of several mining experts who have visited the Fort
Steele district in the interests of tbeir
companies snd who sil spesk well of
Perry creek, looks well lor the future
of this portion of tbe district as a
milling eamp.

On the 12th of Au?usttbe Lieutenant-
Governor wrote to Mr. Charles A. Sein
lin, catling on hii-i to take up the task
of forming an administration abandoned by Mr Beaven and thus explaining!
his previous action. I
"But. as on the best information I
could obtain it was made to appear to
me that there was no recognized leader
of the party since the general elections
of the nth ultimo, it being divided into
two factions, supporting the claims
respectively of yourself and Mr. Martin
to the leadership, and having in view
Mr. Beaven's former leadership of the
said party: his long aud distinguished
service* to tbe Province, and his great
and widely recognized ability as a
financier, so much needed in the political financial condition of the Province,
I sent for him on the 5th instant for
advice as to the political situation aud
the chances of his being able to reconcile the rival���or supposed rival���fat-
tionaof tbe ascendant party and to
form �� ministry acceptable to it. As a
result of that interview tbe subsequent
action of calling upon htm on the Stb
instant was taken." Since then I have
had an interview with Mr Martin, and
he assures me that I was quite nitsin
formed; that no division exists in the
ascendant party, and that he look* to
vou as the leader of it Mr. Beaven
has made a similar report to me, to the
effect that Mr. Martin looks to you as
the recognized leader Under these
circumstances, accordingly, there no
longer exists the advisability that at
first appeared, on the facts reported to
me. of calling upon the old leader to
assume tbe task of forming a ministry
and reconciling factions. I have the
h >nor, therefore, of calling upou yourself, as the now admitted leader of the
ascendant .party to act as chief adviser
to the representative of the crown and

Miking is a dangerous occupation
and should be well paid. Scarcely a
day passes in Kootenay but we read
of some miner being hurt or killed.
Talking about this the other day a
miner said to as: "You bet, it is
risky working under ground. In
Colorado one time I had a contract
sinking an incline shaft. My partner
and I were busy pounding tbe drill
when the cable attached to tbe skip
broke, and we could hear it running
down the shaft at a terrific speed. I
thought it was all up with us and the
cold chills chased each other down
my back in a hasty manner. As luck
would have it tbe skip got jammed
in the timbers about 20 feet above
us. Tbe accident shut on Ue pnmp
and the water began to rise upon us.
We kept climbing to the best of our
ability until we got underneath the
skip when the boys on the other side
got us out. I only had three feet more
of my contract to run, but I hired another man to do mv share of tbe work,
and for many a day I kept awav
from mining. I shall never forget
the terror that animated my frame
until tbe timbersciught the skip snd
saved our lives."
The Crows Nest Railway should
have been built without a money
bonus from Canada. The coal lands
should have been more than enough
to have paid the C.P.R. to bulla the
line. The following from the Toronto
Mail throws some light on subject:

ing that the United States delegates
will refuse to proceed with tbe Quebec conference unless Canada foregoes
the British preferential tariff. The
opinion is firmly expressed that what
ever the finality Canada has gone too
for on pro British lines to yield on
this vital point
There Is no probability that the
United Stages delegates will make any
such demand.   Most of the questions
which are to come before the com
mission are questions which, in the
interest of both countries, ought to be
settled for all time to come.   The
bonding question between the  two
countries will come up;   also the
Aleskan boundary will have to be
defined.   Ihe alien labor question,
which has caused such severe criticism daring the past year, must be
settled; the Atlantic fisheries ques
tion will be considered; also the ques
tion of Canada's proprietary rights in
the seals of Behring sea.   But the
trade question is tbe most important
and will be tbe most difficult of settlement.   We doubt if any agreement
can be reached on this point, tor the
United States will not likely give
Causda any better tariff measures,
and unless the manufacturers ot Can-
sda are allowed  to enter unbound
into the market there in competition
with their manufacturers they will
not be allowed to enter Canada on
any more liberal terms than now.

Republic FlotMMr.
J. D. Curtis, s mining man from Denver, came iu from tbe south half this
week, after spending two weeks in that
section. "I sm thoroughly disgwrtsd
with the mining laws of this state," he
said, "and tlie sooner they are radically
changed tbe better it will be for the mining business. Tbe law ss it stands is ths
most vicious one on the books. It permits land grabbing, and no railroad com-
pane was ever more greedy or grasping
I ban many of the prospectors I have encountered on this trip.
"Go where you msy on tbe south halt
and at this eerty date you will find that
nearly all tbe sections, that give anv indications of carrying mineral, have been
staked. 1 came across one man who
boasted of having :*> claims, another
with 27, snd another with so many its
had to haul out a book and count bis
holdings. None of these fellows had
done a day's work in the way of developing, and one of them had not bad au
sseay made; said lie couldn't afford it;
and 1 guess he spoke tbe truth. These
verv men, by tbeir ewe confessions, admitted thev did not intend to work sny
ot their claims; tliey would simply bold
them, and see wnst someone else might
develop. One old snooser put it this
" 'I hev tree claims np agin one as is
bein' pnispected by a rich Spokane guv.
snd 1 guess lie's got s good t'ing. He'll
want one ov my claims to dump on, and
it'll cost him a few ter git it. Then I've
got a water right ihet some'ne 'ill need,
an' 1 don't t'ink I'll give it away/
''Those are tbe class of men who are
s detriment to the mining Industry, In
Colors.to it Is neeseaary to dotlutt worth
of work on s claim before it can be re
coroVI. And it tsaaadrairsMe lsw. It
makes a man show his good faith when

advantage of everybody interested. In-
ready oil every too* of ground being staked off aod not a pound ot reek or earth
disturbed, there is a chance for an eoer-
getic man to get in on a claim.
"The Washington law retards progress
snd stops work. Tbe conecieniions prospector is often practically kept out of a
district by men who bold doscne of
clsims simply for speculative purposes.
Whatever merit the present law possesses it has been sadly abated."

was si much impressed with the

went out and saw the property He
returned with a magnificent lot'of ore,
which on assay went over a .uo in gold,
silver, and copper.   He then
0 t the proper!v and sent Professor
Hardinan, of Montreal, to inspect the
ground. The Professor, although impressed with the richness of the ore,
reckotted that from the inaccessibility
of the locatiou, it would he a doubtful
nro|tosition, aud on his advice the bond
was abandoned by Mr Hammond.
Last year Knowlton took a working
bond on the property, and -recently
started work on it lie bad an assay

of the mineralization.   A tunnel  has
now been opened on the camp side of
tbe divide on  which the claims are
located, and it is intended to drive this
under the  outcrop  of  the  stringers
This work will prove the extent of the
mineralization to a certain depth, and
will serve to show whether it Is of a
permanent character   The work should
also prove the existence of the lead at
that polr-t and whether its mineralization   corresponds   with  the splendid

difficulty in tunneling at this point is
the trouble in getting in timber, as it
is some distance away, and has to he

I hi tbe other hand the steepness of the

Tbe introduction of promising railway undertakings is a pleasant variation io doubtful mining schemes, and
this company has been forme-* to
acquire and amalgamate the Kaslo &
Slocan Railway and the International
Navigation and Trading Company
t which owns a fleet of steamers on
Kootenay Lake which have hitherto
been the connecting link between the
Kaslo A Slocan Railway and the town
of Nelson), and in addition to acquire
tbe charter of the Bedlington and Nelson Railroad Company. The capital
cous^ts of ��500,000, in ordinary shares
of ��100 each, none of which are offered
to the public, the present issue being of
$/ULyOm five per cent, debentures, which
are offered at par.
As the net profit on the Kaslo &
Slocan Railwav for 1897 amounted to
fjOB^OO.and tbe Navigation Company
showed f*l,000, the interest on the debenture issue, amounting to 1116,400, is
easily provided for- The profits made
bv both undertakings have shown a
marked increase with every half year,
and so much greater activity is reported
from the Slocan silver mines, that there
should be a substantial balance at the
end of this year en tbe working of tbe
present systems sufficient to pay a fair
dividend on the shares. The acquisition of the Bedlington charter is of
great importance to the company. By
this charter a line of about 58 miles in
length will be built from the southern
extremity of Kootenay lake to the International boundarv, where it will
connect by means of branches with both
the Great Northern and the Northern
Pacific railway systems. It is practically certain that the Government will
never again grant a charter to a company which enable it to connect with
American roads Without this charter
Kootenay would practically hsve been
helpless in the bands of the C.P.R. It
will now enjoy the advantages of com-
Bitition, and when Sir William Van
orneand "Jim" Hill commence bidding for freight, rates will get down to
a fair working basis.
It is impossible to over-estimate the
advantages which will accrue to Southern B.C through this amalgamation.
The already large shipments from the
Slocan mines will be increased, as the
haulage to the smelters at Pueblo and
Everett being considerably shortened
the rates will be correspondingly decreased and lower-grade ore can be
shipped. It is a wonderful testimony
to the high value of these silver-lead
ores that they have been able to pay a
good profit���in many cases ��10 a ton���
to tbe mine owners* when sent to the
smelters by so costly and circuitous a
Although the owners of the Kaslo &
Slocan Railway possess half the shares
of the company, the preponderating
interest will remain with the English
debenture-holders, so no uneasiness
need be felt ou this score. We further
learn that the chief engineer of the
Great Northern will be allowed to superintend the construction of the new road,
and the thoroughly good understanding
which appears to" exist between this
com pan v and the svstems controlled
bv Mr.: Jim" Hill shows that at the
eleventh hour Kootenay is to be saved
from the curse of railway monopoly.���

As a silver producer Bolivia it nearly,
if not, ou top. Tbe ways of minimi in
that country have been very wasteful,
and freight rates high . Ou tbe damps
of abandoned mines can be seen stacks
of low grade ore containing millions of
ounces of silver. The silver area of
Bolivia is about 20o miles wide ami
l,*sr> mites long, and runs north to
south Every lew miles can be seen
abandoned properties formerly worked
by the Spaniards Fifty years ajpe>the
number of these mines was estimated
at 10,000, few of which have been ex
hausted Indians used to do the mining
and the owners gave 20 per cent of the
output to Spain It is said that previous
to tne vear 180) the countrv produced
more "than t��,(sl),Ot'0,Gii0 * in silver.
Bolivia secured ber independence from
Spain iu 1*25, and for tbe & years pre-
ceeding that event ber tnim*s* pnsluci^l
|7'),i��),otio, and it is safe to say that up
to date since 1680 Bolivia has produced
fJ4,000^00,000 worth of the white metal.
Most of this came from the mine*
around I'otosi. A city three times tbe
siscjjof SjioUane was once in existence
there, but owing to the exhaustion of
the mines its imputation has fallen to
The city of Aruro is the principal
mining ventre iu Bolivia.   It hssa pop*
ulntion of 1H,ODO, and is built upon a
desert.   The buildings are principally
shacks and the streets are a Sandon
width.   The principal pert of the jiopu
lation are Indians.   The town   has a
Hue hv stein of mule waterworks.   Visit
ors prospecting for boozerino can easily
find it. as ail the saloons have a red tin'/
stuck over their doors    The wet gr.i
ceries most of them sell would bum out
a woodou-fndians stomach in less than
a century.   There is a  famous  mine
near the city called Sacavon la Virgen
Tin- stock of the companv is a million
and it Is quoted 960 percent, above par.
it is very  hot in  this mine and the
miners work with scarcely anv clothes
on    The best of ore only is taken nut,
and it is sorted by Indian women   The
women work all day for IS cents while
the' miners  *et  twice  that   amount
There is t-onshlerahle machinery at the
mine    Flama rnanme is used for fuel
It costs 912 a ton, and it takes nearly
two tons of it to run a *> horse power
engine tor 12 hours.
in Peru there are shout 2,000 silver
mines, nearly all not work lug at tbe
present time owing to tbe low price of
the white metal Within a radius oi
100 miles iu northern Peru there are
400 silver mines, a few of these proper-
tit's produce a high grade ore running
auo ounces to tbe ton, and tbe ore
thrown over tbe dumps will average
about 17 ounces. The miners are all
Indians, ami their pay isfi.Hn a week.
The only tools they uae aro hammers
ami drills. Each Indian has a rawhide
sack which he uses to pack tbe ore to
the surface. Moat of them can carry
l >�� pounds on their hacks Most of tbe
ore is reduced to a sulphide and shipped
to England for further treatment. The
mines of northern Peru produced iBtet,-
wtttaJJutl worth of silver in ����years

Joe Thatcher journeyed to Cody
one day this week  to collect a few
horticultural samples frora the Noble
Five garden  there.   The luxuriant
vegetation was  loaded into a ssck,
but George McDonald, in  a fit of
absent mindedness, tucked in several
beautiful large samples of galena
ore.   Joe packed the whole consignment home but arrived in Sandon in
a terrible stare of physical exhaustion.   When he discovered hoar much
un-necessary work he had done he
went into hvaterics.    George McDonald has taken to the woods.

Celebration Notes.
The Nelson people are l.ot real
sports. They ivftiied to send their
hose reel team up to compete with
our boys on Labor Day.
The Rossland celebration has been
postponed until the 19th so that people may have time to recover from
the excitement of Sandons celebration.
It is said that New York and B��t>
cjygeon have postponed their celebrations.
D. C. McKenzie snd E. J. Robie
did the square thing when they put
up clothing prizes fur the drilling
contests. The boys don't forget these
little items.
All outsiders are hereby notified
that they will get an even break for
their colateral on Labor Day. There
is no limit but the blue'dome of
heaven and everything is on the
square.   All set!
People suffering with heart fa'l-
ure are warned not to pass the dead*
line.   Everything goes.
' People are commencing to arrive
already tor the celebration. The
woods and hills are fall of them.
Ns real sport will miss the boxing
contest.   It will be a hot number.
Hiram Walker sends word that he
can't attend the celebration. He will
be here in spirit.
