Heinse Will Sue the C. P. R.
A dispatch from Montreal states
that the arrival there of Mr. Fitzgerald of Trail, the representative at
that place of F. Aug. Heinze's interests, is the first step in a big lawsuit
which the former magnate of Trail
will enter against the Canadian Pacific Railway. It is stated that the
services of McMaster& Maclennan,
advocates, have been secured, and
that the suit will be for 1100,000,
which is the alleged value of personal
property at the smelter which he
claims he never intended to transfer
to the C. P. R., but which the corporation took and holds in spite of
his protest. The C. P. R. people
claim that they bought everything
in sight and paid 1800,000 in cash for
all of Heinze's railway and smelter
possessions in the Kootenay town.
The exact nature of tbe personal
effects which Mr. Heinze values so
highly and for which he seeks re-l
muneration is not stated. The expectation in Monueal is that the case
will develop into a rather sensational
Heinze's penchant for law suits is
well known. It is said to be doubtful if even he can at this time tell
without consulting his attorneys the
number of suits he has in the Butte
courts in which he is either defendant or plaintiff either in person or
through some of bis numerous corporations. Yet law suits do not seem
to make him poor. His companies
are reputed to be the most profitable
in Butte.
Mining Ceases lor the Winter.
The City of Topeka, which arrived
in Port Townsend from the north on
Monday, reports that heavy snow
storms hive visited various seer ions
of Alaska and nearly all mining
operations have been suspended except quartz mills located near tide

of snow fell en Chilcoot aud White
passes, which completely put a stop
to travel.

According to John Olds, a pioneer
mining and business man of Alaska,
8000 claims have been staked and
recorded in the Atlin mining district
and about 100) men will winter
there. He predicts that Atlin will
have a population of at least 15,000
and that the output of gold will nearly if not quite equal that of Dawson
It Is stated that an English syndicate has bought up about 4200 acres
of placer ground in the Atlin district.
to London.
"Swiftwater Bill" is mid to be
highly indignant at tbe rumor which
has been circulated, that he was
broke. He says that he has plenty
of money and that the stories about
bis suffering from financial embarrassment bave been absolutely without
foundation. He is also said to be
wearv of his wife and to have an
anxiety to get rid of the entire La
More family.
Placer Mining in Terrs del Fuego.
Cleveland, Nov. 7.���Franklin Ran*
som of this city, who went to Terra
Del Fuego a year and a half ago in
quest of gold, has returned with
nearly 118,000 in gold. Ransom will
return to South America In the
spring. He said that he had endured
many hardships during his absence.
He says all the gold is obtained from
placer mines or is washed out of a
magnetic black sand that is blown
upon the sea shore. This sand sometimes runs 11.80 to the pan. The
belt of black sand lies under low tide
level, so it is necessary to wait for a
storm to wash it up in reach of tbe
Swiftwater Bill Again.
"Swiftwater Bill" Gates, tbe former Spokane well digger, but at
present supposed to be a Klondike
millionaire, has returned from Dawson City. He reached Seattle Friday
on the City of Seattle, in company
with "Sailor Bill" Partridge, who is
said to have employed bun as his
negotiating agent to go to London
and get rid of a few claims for him.
Gates is still in Seattle, where he will
probably remain for two or three
weeks. It is thought that he will
pay Spokane a brief visit and then
go to San Francisco, going from there
The Trollri In Japan.
The Chicago Record says: A company of Chicago and eastern capitalists is being formed, with a capital
of not less than $lO.0J0,000, to build
electric railways throughout the
principal cities and towns of Japan.
The financial backers of the enter*
Brize are not as yet revealed, but the
irexels,  Stephen   B.    El kins   and
Philadelphia capitalists are named.
Negotiations are now going on for
a charter. In this connection the
name of W. D. Kastlake, of Chicago,
has deen mentioned. He has lived
for years in Japan.
To Buu the St P. M. & M.
The Great Northern offers to purchase outstanding shares of the St.
Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba at the
price of 125 per cent, payable in stock
of the Great Northern at par. The
stock of the (treat Northern railway

outstanding and will rank with it for
dividends and in all other respects.
The delivery of the St. P. M. A M.
railroad's stock must lie made to the
Great Northern compsny between
January 1st and 15th, 1899, when

Tresdwell and allied companies have
been erecting on Douglas island,
Alaska, are completed, and after

These mills give Douglaa ism ml a
total of 880 stamps with a capacity
for crushing 2500 tons of ore dally.
Lesdeille Mines to Resume.
It is announced that the properties
of the Leadville mining companies
will resume operations. It Is predicted that the resultant tonnage of sil-
ver-lead ore will in a measure renew
tbe required smelter supply, for
which the CVeur d'Alenes, the Kootenay and Mexico have for the last two
years been drawn upon.

effect upon the country at large, while

���Trade Review.
Last August a bond was given to Mr.
Otto Abeling ou the Revenue, on the
Mohawk lead, on Pool creek, and on
Monday the deal was put through by
VV. B. Pool it d tbe cash paid over to
the owner. Arthur Ellis, says the Revel-
stoke Herald.   The Revenue is situated
on Pool creek, about eight miles from
Thomson a Landing^tnd is reached by a
nr*4-class pack trail.   There is plenty
ot timber and water on tbe claim tor the
purpose oi mining.   The  ore is of a
simitar character to that found on the
hear rice and is on the  same ledge.
Beyond all doubt the Mohawk lead has
the lie*>t showings of any lead in the
whole of Kootenay to-day!   It has been
the wonder of all mining men who have
visited that '.district.   With the extensive development work now being done
on the   Beatrice,   the   Mohawk    lead
should be well advertised and will bring
the Pool creek camp into prominence
next year.
and, nearly pulling it in two, and both
churning it.   And King Solomon wasn't
feeling right  good  and   said:    'Why
couldn't tbe brat have been twins and
stopped all this bother.'   And he called
for bis sword and was going to chop the
little baby in two and give each of them
a piece or it, when the one who was the
mothar of the baby said:   'Stop, Solomon, stay thy hand.   Let that hag have
it.   If I can't have a whole baby f don't
want any.'   Then King Solomon told her
to take the baby and-go home and wash
its face for he knew it was here.   He
told Uie other woman to go chase herself.
King  Solomon built   King  Solomon's
temple, and was. the fattier af all the
Masons.   He had 7001 wives and 900 lady
friends, and that is why there aura so
many Masons in the world.   Papa says
King Solomon was a warm member, and
I think he was hot stuff myself.   That e
all I know about King Solomon."

In spite of the fact that tbe CP.R.
now haa virtually a corner on tbe
freight and passenger traffic of tbe
Kpotenaya it la not probable that tbe
great Canadian corporation will al
waya be �� fortunate.   The Montreal
Star ia in a position to state that the
officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway will soon have one of tbe biggest
fighta of their existence on tbeir
bands, and it is understood that at
this early date steps are being taken
to get things in shape for tbe battle
which is soon to begin   with tbe
American railroad interests, beaded
by tbe Great Northern railway, over
an entrance into British Colombia, to
compete with the Canadian Pacific
Railway.   Tbe American roads profess to know that the C.P.R authorities fear the outcome of the fight on
account of tbe vast amount of capital
which is said to be behind the move
on the part of tbe Great Northern.
At Ottawa it will be the Corbin fight
of last session over again, only on a
much larger scale.
Tbe C.P.R. came out successful
last session after a bard fought battle
and since that time the Corbin interests have passed into tbe bands of the
Great Northern, and that they are
prepared to carry on the business
where Mr. Martin left off is now well
known in railway circles. At tbe
present time representatives of tbe
Great Northern, are said to be at
work in Canada paving the way for
the introduction of a measure at the
next session of Canadian bouse seeking legislative approval for the construction of a line into southern
British Columbia from tbe United
Tbe coming straggle will be all the
more interesting oa account oi tbe
fact that all tbe American roada
which have been lighting against the
CP.R. in the passenger and freight
rate fights, are silled with tbe Great
Northern in this matter, and It Is
said would be very glad *�� get in a
blow at their most feared rival.
A Spokane paper in this connection
announces that 'Tbe Great Northern
Is making ready for a great struggle
with the Canadian Pacific Railway.
The traffic of British Columbia is to
be the prise of battle Back of tho
C.P.R. will be its powerful agents in
the Dominion Government; back of
the Great Northern will be all the
great American railways which hope
to share in the gains once the grip
of the Canadien octopus is broken."
Prominent Government men are
satisfied that silver-lead and lead
products wil! be commodities which
will be taken into consideration in a
reciprocity treaty, if one be entered
into between tbe United 8tates and
Canada.   It ia also understood that if
no treaty be arrived at that the Dominion Government, in order to give
British Columbia the protection it is
entitled under the present protective
policy of the Government, will increase the import duties on lead products, or place them the same as
those which apply on silver-lead and
products entering the United States.
This is one of tbe alternatives proposed by Mr. Hugh Sutherland which
should be adopted if tbe lead producers of this Province are to receive
fair treatment   It is understood that
tbe Government is in full possession
of tbe nets bearing on the matter and
that the subject haa already been before the Quebec conference for consideration.   At tbe present time tbe
producers of silver-lead aod lead ores
in this Province labor under great
disabilities which should not be tbt Irs.
If tbe remedy lay tn their own bands
it would be very eaay to apply it, but
it does not. It is a question of legislation and every one knows that the
Canadian Government has beaiiated
tb adopt any policy which could be
construed into retaliation or exclusion.   Such are contrary to British
ethics in the administration of public
affairs.   The  Nelson  Miner thinks
that if our American friends would
that it would not pat them at a
disadvantage bat would ensure them
larger trade, tbey would amend the
customs duties applying to sil ver lead
and lead ore,  but unfortunately the
government at Washington is constrained to consider public opinion in
western mining states, and that opinion is decidedly against what are
called <4ooncett��ona to Canada.''
London ia still attracted to 800th
Africa, bat ere many months peas
along the capital from that great
money centre will be seeking investments in the 8tooan and other parta
of Kootenay. The year 18911, the last
of the century will witness one ot the
greatest mining excitements of the
age, and British Colombia will be

A ������fad" among Rocky Mountain prospectors is the discovery or rather
fancied discovery of the somewhat rare
and somewhat mysterious metal, nickel.
Thetchances of finding it in small
quantities in certain ores and localities
seem on the whole more favorable
than of finding the much coveted tin.
Of late we have frequently received,
especially from the Pacific Slope, from;
Oregon, Washington, and the Kootenai
regions, samples of pytrhotite, a peculiar bronae, brownish tons of iron
pyrites of a peculiar form of crystallisation, unlike that ef ordinary iron py rite.
This pvrrhotite is one of the favorite
nickel ���'bearing ores, and though alt
pvrrhotite doss by no means carry
nickel.-eomc of it may, aad tome of the
specimens sent us ot pvrrhotite have at
least a verv nickeunrons *ook.. Some
reUatfe. ijrorsnattsa has been <

chromium and nickei and so do the
Srimitive schists of Norway. It is sel*
om absent from the serpentines, steatites, diallages and actiuolites of the
Quebec group, and is found also in
associated dolomites. It is also associated with torrential iron, a nickeliferous
limonlte occurring in Lincoln county,
North Carolina, also in Miehtgen snd iu
the spathic iron of Antwerp,New York,
it exists also In the copper of theLsku
Superior region. New Mexico, Oregon,
California, and Nevada have important
���localities carrying nickel. The most
lahundaut ore of nickel is in the firm of
a mixture with pyrrhotite or magnetic
iron pyrites occurring in the older
crystalline rocks.
This form occurs In Canada, Vermont. Connecticut, in the highlands of
the Hudson, in New Jersey, and in
Pennsylvania, it abound* at Toning*
ton aud Litchfield, Connecticut, and at
Lancaster Gap, Pennsylvania. These
ores average only 2% of nickel as mined
Other nickei minerals of higher per.
rentage occurring in smaller quantities
are ntccolite U% nickel, and *��% arsenic
at Chatham, Connecticut. At Finks-
burg, Maryland, siegenic (cobalt
pyrites) occurring with copper pyrite
contains -�� to &��% nickel snd occurs also
in Prussia and Sweden.
A green  crust known as emerald
nickei is found iu the massive chromile
Juarried st Woodspit, Baltimore, tor
icroroate of potash. It is s hydrous
nickel carbonate derived bv infiltration
from small granular nodules of nickel
sulphide disseminated in a massive
voile* talc with the chromite The
same occurs in Southern Oregon. In
the United States pyrrhotite is principally worked for nickel, although tbe
amount A nickel ia not more than ��%.
the quantity of ore ia so large and available and the sulphide ore so readily
smelted or enriched iu nickel bv roast
ing and melting that il is the most
economical ore to treat for nickel.
Until the discovery of large deposits A
nickel silicate ore in New Caledonia,
pyrrhotite was the source of nickel In
Europe snd America, occurring in the
older archean rocks from Canada sonth.
principally in Connecticut snd Pennsylvania.
At Chatham, Connecticut, the ore
occurs In mica state. Nickel and cobalt
are in combination with arsenic and
eatpbur. From East Haddatn iq tfW,
cobalt waa mined for making into smalt
for coloring tbe blue ol rhinaware. and
HU toe* of R were shipped to t bins, and
later the mine waa opened snd produced s e *rtatn amount of nickel. The
ntchs't Btine also at Torrtngt-m. from
which considerable nickel was shipped
to England ia days gone by, Is	
ed with it in incrusted and mamillary
ed of a close aggregation ef
ratals, giving a velvet like
surface to the crusts when found In
cavities. The total annual consumption
In the United States is about 40��,tW
pounds. Sweden, Saxony, NewCald
mlnnle, Spain and New South Wales
have their nickel deposits."
Birmingham, Ala.���Senator John T.
Morgan, who is taking part in ths eon*
gressionsl campaign in this stats, spoke
st Seal hall to-night to a large audience.
He dwelt chiefly with the subject ol
trade snd territorial ex pension especially

With regard to lbs Niearsgusn canal

when public sentiment would practically
force tlie present congress to set favorably upon it. The war bad brought
about this situation. As to Cuba's
