The Marriage of Mr. Bruce Miller
White of Sandon, British Columbia,
and Miss May Elsie, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. James Fellows of this town
occurred in Bethany Baptist Church
on Wednesday noon, 16th, the Right
Rev. Henry A. Neeley, Bishop of
Maine, performing the ceremony in
accordance with the rites of the Epis
copal church.
The impressive ceremony was per
formed in 'the presence of a large
number of invited guests, after
which, to the joyous music of Mendel-
ssohu's wedding march, the wedding
party, consisting of Mr. and Mrs.
White, proceeded by the little flower
girl and followed by the maid Of
honor, the best man and the ushers,
passed down the ceutre isle and retired from the church.
The wedding was a pretty one
throughout, every feature pleasing
and every detail happy in conception
and execution, reflecting great credit
on those having the arrangements in
charge.���Skowhegan Reporter. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B.C., DECEMBER   3, 1898.
Great Discoceni  of   Phonolite at
Dead wood, S. D.���A start! rug discovery has been announced this week
which is the best kind of news to the
Black Hills. Situated about four
miles west of Dead wood, in Dead-
wood gulch, >s a wide belt of what
has been supposed to be porphyry
rock. The ground has been prospected year after year and the same
conclusion has been derived that tbe
rock is porphyry arrd contains no
0. U. Pryce, who has spent a number of years in the gold districts of
Cripple Creek, has been in the Hills
three years Eor the past three
weeks he has been making examin
ation of these large porphyry dikes
and has had many samples assayed
and has made several trips to Colo*
rado. He pronounces the rock phonolite. This is the same formation
found in the Cripple Creek country,
and samples taken from the district
in the Hills has been passed on by
the best Colorado experts as Cripple
Creek ore.
The district is fiond to be three
miles wide and six long and commences at the Horuestake belt, extending northwest. There are many
ledges of ore ranging from seven to
ten feet wide, and they .re thought
to be verticals. Assays have been
obtained from the ore" ranging from
��40 to $140 to tbe ton in gold.
Mr. Pryce has bonded a large area
of country including the. Tip Top,
Murray group, La Beau, McCarthy
groups, Stewart property and the
Roberts group. He has a nuinlxr of
Denver capitalists on the way to the
Hilts, and it is considered a wonder
ful discovery. There are many
phonolite belts in the Hills, but they
have not peen prospected much and
have usually been considered barren
rock. This opeus up a new Held for
prospectors. A sale of the property
in toe Dead wood gulch is sure to be
made in a few days. The formation
around the district and the surface
indications are said to be the same as
the famous Cripple Creek district.
No mining news has so stirred up
the poop c of the Northern Hills as
this find.

in regard to tbe sale of the stock and
the property is now worth close onto

Prospecting in Cuba.
Wichita, Kan., Nov. 23.���Dr. J.
W. Langford of Arizona and 12 of
Roosevelt's rough riders have gone
to San Juan hill, Cuba, to peospect
for gold. In an interview here Lang-
ford said :
''Because of Its pleasant climate I
believe Cuba to he a better gold Held
than Klondike. I think Culm is one
of the best prospecting countries in
the world.

A Bylaw for lt��*gnlatlng Streets

The M>-nicl-e1 CVincil a* ths fo-no-stlon
of the City of Sandon enact* as follow* :
Tbe Copper Boom.
Calumet, Mich., Nov. 25th.-Copper country people are going wild
over the copper market, aud the
rapid rise in price of nearly every
copper mine stock in the market has
made several fortunes for people who
were wise enough to invest their cash
in the mines a short time ago. The
stocks have gone up beyond all ox
pecutions, nnd the indications are
that they will go still higher. The
steady price paid for the metal itself
and the stability of the copper market under the most trying condition*
are responsible for the big gains.
Lake Superior people are confident
that the prices will go still higher
and are buying all the stock they
can lay their hands on. Orders for
over 30,000 shares of different copper
stocks went in to-day from people of
this city, and thaf is evidence conclusive that the people right on the
ground are confluent in tbe future of
the mines here. Calumet and Hecla
holders will not let their stock go at
anv price.
One  man from  this city went to
the Klondike gold fields last tpring
and before going purchased a lot of

lai Placer Digging*.
It would fen that all that Tget coon
try to broadly referred to as "tlie north/'
aod extending from British Columbia
np to tlte ftpssn Arctis tone, and from
Teslin lake to the Aleutians, is preg-
nsnt with yellow gold. Tho rocks and
quarts propositions ererywtiere and the
dry benchef wherever tried return
signs of the sreeioiis metal, while there
is not a creek in the whole vast territory, it is sajU, thst will not give colors
in the prospector's pan.
The Dalton trail is claiming the attention of the northern miners���or rather
dividing attention with the Atlin lake
fields���and kept ground, as yet barely
scratched over, aftortf midway between
Teslin and Atlin lake*. /Ths finds on the
Dalton trail Are known of now with particulars snd certainty, end according to
M. A. Needlutni, a resident of Juneau
and pioneer among the Alaskan miners,
manv of the 70 recorded claims are already sending gold into Juneau.
'These diggings," he said, '.are about
40 miles up the Dalton trail froo. Haines'
Mission, some of them on Porcupine
creek and others on a small stream the
name of which I do not recall. I saw
$1,800 worth of the gold that was sent
into Juneau, and I mist say it less
pretty dust sa anyone would wish tolook
at, fine aad clear in color aad running
well over $18 to the ounce in value.
Two men that I know of personally
took out $900 in five days, and did not
half work their dirt; while the gravel
on the shallow bedrocks yields, I am
told, 15 cents to $1.50 to the pan. Of
course, it is too late in the season to
determine the exact worth of these new
diggings now, but thev will be well populated and thoroughly prospected with
the coming of spring."
Mr. Needham enjoys the distinction
of having been the first to prospect the
Atlin lake district, although he was
not the author of the discoveries that
have drawn all the eyes to Atlin as
the future great mining field of the
"It was two-and-a-half years ago v hen
I tried the ground at the mouth of Pine
creek, and though I got colors in plenty,
tbe gold was nil so fine and flowery
that I thought the creek was ol little
account and went on to try aome where
else. 1 know now where I mate uf
Ing mistake."
Rich discoveries have been made -midway-between Teslin and Atlin lakes.
The new field in British Colombia has
quite eclipsed tbe Kldhdike in the attention of every one from Olenora to Teslin,
and one and all will find their way to
Atlin in the spring, after wintering
where they now are.  Some few of the
Sioneers, who struck across from a point
) miles down Lake Teslin, are reported
to bave struck rich pay dirt about hall
way across to Atlin City, and will remain and develop these properties.
Others will posh on to the original
objective point���Atlin being tbe comoton
Rich strikes have been made recently
on Nesutlin river, the chief feeder of
Teslin lake. Two men are credited with
having taken out 50 ounces in 14 days.
while claims are being staked in every
diseetion. Miners en the north fork of
the Salmon are credited with winning
from $20 to $30 a day, and prices have
gone up to the Dawson winter standard.
W. E. Dunn, who went to Jspan and
China six months ago in the interests of
thePuget Hound Reduction Company,
operating the smeltof at Everett, has
just returned ou tbe steamer, Kmprsss
of China. His mission to the Orient
was to introduce the lead turned out by
hi* Company. In thin he was verv successful; arranging to dispose of tlie
smelter's entire output. Home will go
to Chins, where tbe consumption for t**a
wrappings amounts to from 20,000 to
25,000 tons a year. AH the lead wilt be
"hipped from Seattle. The Puget Sound
Reduction Company, of Everett, made a
���shipment of 200,000 pounds of lead
bullion, cenHignedsto Sltanghai, China,
last Thursday. It wan shipped by rail
over the Seattle A International Railway
to Vancouver, to be shipped on the Kni-
press line of steamer*. The smelter has
on hsnd about 700,0U0 pounds of lesd
ready for shipment, hut is enable to
make the shipment al the present time
on account of the scarcity of tonnage, ��n
all steamers leaving the Sound at the
pressnt time have more than they can
carry. At the refinery, this week 20
bricks of gold and silvsr, each containing MOO ounces to the brick, were run
off at one draw from one of the furnaces.
This is the largest draw mails since the
refinery was put in operation.
A compressor plant Is to be pit In on
the Black Diamond, Ainsworth, to be
run bv water power. The long tunnel,
of 2,foo feet will tap the Black
Diamond, Little Donald and Highlander properties.
An idea of the productiveness of the
soil round New Denver may be judged
from the variety, sise, quality and
quantity of tbe vegetable* grown upon
tne Bosun ranch, owned hy J. C
Uarrts. Most of the soil cultivated has
been Improved from the virgin forest
within the past year or so. Beets have
been grown weighing fl pounds each:
carrots, 6 lbs.; red cabbago, 22 Ilea.;
green cabbage, 18 ths. and pumpkin*.
So lbs. Potatoes, onions, melons of all
kinds, tomatoes, citrons and cucumbers
were a great success and the earlv ones
ripened well. Small fmitt bore exceedingly large crops, and* In fart,
evervthmg planted so far has returned
a rich harvest Mineral is not the only
wealth of the Slocan.

In another put of this lame will he
seen an item to the effect that the
Paget Sound Redaction Company,
operating the Everett smelter, had
made arrangements for disposing of
their entire output of lead in the
Orient One hundred tons has already gone forward by way of Vancouver, bat the balk will follow from
Seattle. Canada has a lesson taught
it in this matter, and a pronounced
one at that While the smelters in
West Kootenay are, and. have been,
in no position presumably to handle
socecssfully the wet ores of a large
section of the district the American
works absorb the same and derive
good profits therefrom. The transaction noted shows that the American
business man is thoroughly alive to
his opportunities.
China alone absorbs about 25.000
tons of lead annually for tea wrapping
purposes, while Japan and other
countries in tne Orient makes way
with several thousand tons more for a
similar use and in other commercial
avenues. This market coupled with
the home demand, should make sufli
cient ground for the Canadian smelters to attempt the reduction of tbeir

Disaster on Kootenay Lake.
The steamer Ainsworth, plying
between Nelson and fionners Ferry,
was wrecked on Kootenay lake daring a heavy storm Tuesday night.
Six of the crew and three passengers
were drowned. The following is s
list of those lost:
Charles   Csmpbell,  merchant a
Two Italian laborers whose names
could not be learned.
 Perry, Mate.
Hsrry Jakes,* second engineer.
Jim McNeil, fireman.
John Guern, steward.
Charley Hume, cook.
Joe Davis, deck hand.
The Ainsworth left Pilot Bay st
6.40 p. m. An hour later, eight
miles south of the Bay, a squall
struck her and the steamer began
shipping the seas. Several cord- of
wood were thrown overboard, bat of
no avail. The steamer listed and
went over on her beam ends.
The Ainsworth carried two lilt*
boats, the smaller of which was immediately launched, but swamped,
drowning four men. The second
boat was finally launched, but was
overcrowded by a number of Italian
passengers and was also swamped
The captain, aided by Jack Donnelly and Kane, succeeded in righting
the boat and bailing her out. Ten
men were taken aboard and the
boat made the east shore, landing
and again returning to the wreck
and taking off seven more. The
third and last trip was made with
eight, all the survivors. A fire ws*
kindled and the shipwrecked men
made themselves ss comfortable as
was possible. Captain Lean, Walter
Marshall and Kane took the boat and
succeeded in reaching Pilot Bay at
4:30 a. m., where the tug Kaslo' waa
secured and despatched to the aid of
the balence of the shipwrecked people.
Dean, Kane, Donnelly and other
members of the crew are highly
praised for their braver}',
