The Canadian Pacific Railway
officials report a scarcity of men on
the work of construction between
Arrow lake and the Boundary. J. E.
Stevens, chief engineer for toe contractors, has stated that until the
contractors could have some assurance that the supply of men
could be increased no effort would
be made to scatter the work, but
that it would be concentrated on the
worst portions of tbe road during
good weather. He expected to have
about 2,000 men at work at the summit near the North .Fork early in

Standard. The gentlemen are taking advantage of the time on their

The Comique.     MH__
The people of Sandon are getting
tired of their Comique. They find
that a place of that kind is of no
financial benefit to tbe city. It helps
to drain money out of the place, and
leaves nothing' behind except pulled
legs snd headaches. If the authorities of the city will look into the
matter they will probably find that
such places are not legal in Canada.
We do not attack Comiques from a
moral standpoint but simply in a
business way. They are of no benefit to any community and the sooner
they become obsolete the better it
will be for the people. Our worthy
city fathers will do well to consider
this matter at their future sessions.
Some of the richest discoveries of
gold ancl other precious metals ever
made were made by men so ignorant
of minerology and the cognate sciences that they had to bring the samples to camp to be told whether they
were just plain, everyday rock or
clippings from a bonanza. For
every man trained in the art of discriminating among the outcroppings
on the mountain side, and able to tell
by the appearance of a range
whether gold ought to be there or
not, there are probably a hundred
who are totally ignorant of such
knowledge, and yet who go on prospecting in the hope of stumbling onto
something rich���some day. By far
the greater number of men who
have swarmed north to the Yukon
since July lSi��7, and who are now
scattered over the face of that wide
region lying between the Pacific
coast and the Klondike, know nothing at all about gold mining or prospecting upon a scientific basis. Many
of them are men who have "knocked
about" a good deal and "picked up"
a smattering ot knowledge about
formations and a dim notion about |
testing and assaying, but nothing
definite. British Columbia has many
such men in its mining regions; one
here and there makes a lucky strike
while the majority lives no one
knows how, but it Always seems to
occur to them that it would be practical common sense to go somewhere
and take a course in a school of
mines and so equip themselves
thoroughly for their business. When
it is remembered that the practical
prospector ought to have a broad,
general education upon which to lay
the necesaairly exact and specific
knowledge of geology, metallurgy,
chemistry, besides practical assaying, the futility of the unskilled
man's efforts will be recognized. As
the Mining and Scientific Press recently expressed it: * The secrets of
the modern prospector ami mine
manager lie in their knowledge of
the dates and effects of porphyry intrusions and overflows/' These
secrets cannot be "picked up" in
"knockingaround" mining camps:
they must be learned accurately and
definitely through laborious study
under specialists.
Now, as the well-known fact that
British Columbia ia practically one
immense mineral field is likely to
attract thousands ot men from aft
over the world, eager to try their
luck, and as many of these men wUl
come here utterly ignorant of even
the rudiments of mining knowledge
but would be glad enough of an opportunity to learn it they could do
so without too much expense, why
should not a good school of minea be
established in the province ? Such an
institution would afford a grand op
Eortunity fbr voung British Colum
ians to train for the profession that,
it can hardly be doubted, is to be the
leading one in this province in coming years. Not only so, but young
Canadians from the eastern and
middle provinces would be likely to
be attracted by the facilities for study
offered by a well appointed mining
college in this province. The mineral deposits of this province would
then be systematically explored and
developed; much more definite and
abundant information and more
trustworthy reports could then be
placed before tlte capitalists of the
United Kingdom. The mining college could lie started in a modest
way, care being taken, however, to
secure first-class lecturers and de-
mostrators; it would not be long
before thc institution would attract
so mnch notice, and the demand for
tuition become so great that enlargement would have to be made, It
seems to os the scheme is feasible,
and that the time is ripe for putting
it to the test. At any rate it would
be satisfactory to have tbe matter
freely discussed in all its bearings as
a preliminary to action.���Victoria
Scab labor and scab institutions
should be given the cold sholder in
the Slocan. If tbey succeed in getting a foothold in this camp the
working man will eventually have
to take starvation wages or pack his
blankets to some other locality.
Miners are paid the same wages as
they were when the camp waa
young, and there is no present reason
why Sandon should fall to the level
ota two-bit town. For their own
good miners should see that scabs in
trade are given a wide berth.

Mitch baa been said from time to
time by the newspapers of tke inland
empire relating to the silver lead industry of Uie province with a view to
awakening an interest in money
centres In the several institutions that
are needed to further develop our
vast mineral resources. The Boss-
land Miner makes these very sens!
Me remarks: "The silver-lead miners
of the Kootenay are more interested
in the establishment of manufactories
of the products of lead in thia vicinity
than they think they are. This may
seem paradoxical, bot nevertheless it
is true. If there were enough factories, taming oat the products of
lead, established at some central
points in the district to use up tbe
lead produced by the mines there
would be no necessity for sending
oar galena ores to tbe United States
tor reduction, fbr the reason that it
would be possible to carry on at a
substantial profit here smelters for the
silver-lead ores. This is not the case
at present
"Why is this so and what relation
has one to the other?
"The silver-lead ores of the Koote
nays are sent to the United Suites for
two reasons: One ia because there is
a market in that country for the pig
lead, where it is turned into various
valuable commercial products. The
other is because the lead in the ore is
subject to an Import dot*; of one and
one-half cents per pound, while on
pig lead smelted in this country and
sent into the United States, which is
about the only available market, the
import dnty Is two and a half cents
per pound. This tax ia virtually prohibitory, when tt is considered that
pig lead la only worth three and a
half to four cents per pound.
"In the year 1897 there was
brought into Canada from foreign
countries lead to Vhe quantity ot 10,-
858 tons. This wss in the form of
shot, lend pipe, paints, tea lead,
acetate, litharge, old scrap and pig
lead. The imports of lead into Canada will be larger and grow with
each succeeding year, aa they will
keep pace with the increase in the
" It la, therefore, obvious that the
miners oi the silver-lead producing
belt are deeply interested in the
matter of locating manufactories for
the products of lead in this vicinity
and herein lies the true solution of a
problem that has long vexed tbem.
With lead refineries and factories located In this country in juxtaposition
to the lead smelters the miners would
save a great deal. In the first place
they would not then be compelled to
pay the United States duties on lead
or on lead bullion, because it would
be kept at home and manufactured
into products of ��� much higher value,
and would not only be used in Canada bat could be exported to various
foreign countries. Besides this, there
would be a great saving in tbe
matter of freight. The short haul to
the lead smelters located at home
would be much cheaper than tbe long
haul to the reduction works situated
in the United States. It is, therefore,
obvious that it Is to the very beet
interest of the silver-lead producers
of the Kootenays that manufactories
ot the products of lead be established
In this country at the earliest possible

properties. Ryan, Sloan, Foster, Allen
and Cory were tbe sellers, and the terms
worn cash. Work will be commenced
Una month.
On the Enterprise group little ia being
���aid but much work is being accomplished, ami the amount of ore blocked out is
increasing rapidly. In the new tunnel,
between No*. S aud 4 workings, distance
is being quickly gained, and the ore
chute will be more advantageously
handled. A abaft haa been commenced
from the surface, a little over midway on
the Enterprise claim, and the showing
of ore in the foot is indeed encouraging.
It shows larger cubes of galena than in
the workings below. In a short while
ail the workings will be connected by ut
eitensive system of shafts, affording better venUlation and expediting the
handling of tbe ore from thia most remarkable chute.
From a stringer of dean ore struck on
tbe truUneau and Simons, two of the
claims of the Slug Ten group, on Ten
Mile, a return of 304 ox. in silver, with
lead and copper of value, has been received. Last week another sample,
which proved to be arg��ntite. gave the
phenomenal assay of ��7 per cent, pure
silver. Tliis season's work on the Slug
Ten group has proven tbe ledge in place,
with good mineral in a number of openings, a feature of tbe ore being tbe
strongly marked presence of copper
The ledge shows a width of almost 30
feet, which contains several well-defined
mineral-bearing stringers of quarts.
On the Orillia, the fourth and lowest
claim in the group, a second ledge gives
surface returns of 30 os. in silver, theore
being a sine blende. This group adjoins
and parallels the Enterprise on the east,
and its locality and situation give it additional value apart from its own showings. The work done on the property
consists of three crosscut tunnels and a
number of open cuts. Tlie principal
owners are Thos. Reid, C E. Smither-
ingale and C F. Nelson, of New Denver
Considerable talk is being indulged
in bv old time minern and prospectors,
who have visited the property, about
tbe late tind on the Monument group,

it is said the best initial showing that
has ever been found in the Sim-an is to
be seen there. It surpasses the great
Freddv U*e outcropping, or the hig
showing of the I'avne The ledge is
exposed at several points on the hill
and shipping ore can be knocked down

known to exist until the past few

The Slocan is already secure In her
reputation (or rich silver deposits snd it
is still an open question if the Mollie
Hughes does not develop good values in
gold and copper.   If we add sine to this
list of minerals the variety of Slocan ores
are, according to the best of my information,  complete.    Last   autumn while
hunting in Lardeau mining district Mr.
Shuttle worth came upon a large irr*n
capped ledge located on a high elevation
which is Uie divide between the south
branch of Pinkston creek and the north
branch of the Faahall.   Although impressed witb the appearance of the ledge
he did not stake it, and may probably
have cause to repent the omission.   In
1896 Messrs. Wallcott and Skae staked a
claim near the north end of the ledge,
but did not follow the outcrop to the end
of its course.   Sometime in October last
Xavier Piem conducted Messrs. McKay
and Simon, of Nakusp,  to the ledge,
rhey are miners of experience and at
once staked a group of claims and are
now at work  developing the property.
Tlie registration of these locations naturally attracted prospectors to the district
and nov. thereon, according to the beat
information to be obtained, some 12 or
14 mites of the ledge is staked.  The
cream of Uie property, however, is controlled  by tne gentlemen named and
their associates in whose names certain
claims in the group were staked. A good
trail haa been built from a point ou the
Columbia,   opposite   the    lower    bot
springs, to the summitt of the divide, to
the property.   The claims they control
cover the ledge  to  the  point where it
begins to drop to the south to Foethall
creek.   The claims beyond that point
am not so promising in appearance and
would require an outlet other than the
trail referred to.   Thia ledge which haa
been traced some 14 miles varies in width
but nowhere seems  to be less than 30
feet   It haa every appearance of a true
gossan.   Messrs. Walcott and Skae have
sunk two shafts some 20 feet in solid ore
which carrier only flakes of quai tt.  The
ore is a mixture of pyrrhoUte, marcosite,
galena and  sine blend; the iron ores
predominating.   They are now working
on a tunnel  which they intend to run
into tbe face of the ledge to enable them
to crosscut and determine if possible the
width of the ore body which is at present
unknown. The galena gives a good assay
value in silver,  while the pyrrhotite
carries low values in gold and copper.
The other holdings are at present being
worked by Messrs. Simon, McKay, Harriott and Pierre, who are claim owners
and desirous of developing the property.
They have penetrated the iron cap in
different places  with most interesting
results.   In one instance they uncovered
pyrrhotite.   In another they have followed a galena  lead   until they broke
into a large cavity tilled with loose marcosite.   At another point they have uncovered a variety of ores that require
analytical treatment to determine their
mineral properties.   The  ledge appar
ently is the repository of a great variety
ot minerals.   The operators have been
contented with first assays so the value
of the ore as the work haa progressed has
not been  ascertained.    If  the values
should continue low grade the large body
of ore should, in a reasonable measure,
compensate for that deficiency.   But if.
on the other hand, the values should
increase as development progresses, the
big ledge may attain an enviable prominence in the list of mining camps of the
The ledge is in a schistose formation
and In conformity with the strike of the
tock.   The strike is e.n.e. to w.s.w. and ,
the dips of the ledge conforms with the
dips ol the general outcrop of the neighborhood. To tbe west and running
parallel with tbe ledge ia a granite formation which to the east is limestone. So
far aa the ledge waa traced there is to be
seen in equal prominence and paralleling it a reef of crystaliaed limestone.
Tbe elevation is about 7,000 feet above
the level of Arrow Lake. There is ample
water power, and if Messrs. Simon and
McKay mature the plans they now have

The Iron and Coal Trades Review
Mexicans have been miners for centuries, in the older fields at least: tbe
practice is primitive but is particularly
suited to the conditions of their work
The principal mines are located at an
elevation ol 6,000 to 8,000 feet above sea
level, where fuel and timber are scarce;
but, while fuel Is costly, forage is cheap
and it costs onlv tl 50 a week to keep a
mule, hence mule and horse power replace steam wherever possible I lie
old method of unwatering mines is
curious. All workings below water
level drain into a central sump and
above this is fixed a barrel and from
this there rnna an endless string of
buckets which dip Into the water and
discharge into another reservoir 90 feet
or so above the lower one. The barrel
is revolved through gearing- turned by
a mule. A succession of these reservoirs and trains of buckets brings the
water to the surface. The clumsy arrangement although superseded to a
large extent tn mines is still employed
for wells and irrigation.
Mexican miners form a distinct and
an aristocratic   caste,  looking  down
upon rancheros and agriculturists witb
contempt.   Tbe miner is easily worth
���1.00 a day and is much more independent, while the best farm laborer does
not earn more than 25 cents and is ta a
state of practical slavery.   The Mexicans are very proud ami sensitive and
a foreigner must exercise considerable
tact to manage them.   Three classes of
laborers are employed, underground-
miners proper, laborers who clear out
tbe workings after the blasting, and
packers who carry the raateriaito the
shaft    Skilled miners work in gangs of
eight each  and are paid hy contract,
each gang having a captain,  who is
responsible to the engineer of the mine
only.   These contractors furnish their
own   supplies excepting* their drills
which are weighed at intervals aud the
wear charged against  the gang    A
drift of two yards square costs from 125
to $10 per yard, but the contract its do
not remove the broken material, which
is done by the laborers who receive
from 50 to 75 cents per day.   These
laborers also roughly sort the ore for
the packers who sack it before carrying it to the shaft.. These packers are
paid by*\he sack according to weight
and distance traversed and thevcarrv
as much as 150 pounds at a time up the
steep winces earning from 75 cents to
tl per day    The work is very severe
and exhausting and heart disease and
lung troubles are only to common. Ore
chutes and tramways in the levels are
not used to tbe extent they should bo,
and, although there is never anv difficulty in getting sufficient ore broken
down, want of labor often causes much
vexatious delay  in  bringing it to the
surface.   A cheaper way of working is
to let a mine out in sections to bus. one*
or tribute���.   Each partv then lias so
many feet along the veto or an end to
drive.   They pay all their expense*.
and are entitled to half thc ore thev
bring out.   Rock drill* and  air compressors are  coming into  use, butou
account of the cost of fuel the more
primitive methods are often better    In
r*S?*Y, ,'HnUro��n<l ���*��� gang ol Mexicans
will drive from three to four vnrds per
week at a cost of from WO to Sto per
yard. Two air drills will accomplish 10
yards per week, but each yard will
cost from *��) to $100, half of the expense
of the machine work being due to the
fuel and repairs Another diffimltv in
using machines is the inability of'the
uative miners to work them nnd skilled
drillers have to be imported.

since they went to the Copper river
country. Their story of bard luck Is
worse than that of those who have returned before them. Thev staved for
weeks getting their stuff across the
glacier, and once on the other side
found the bars too poor to pav wages.
Then came a race with the sun across

pressed that several of the parties now

the lower extremity of Luke Tanganyika, and is at the survey now of the
Hrst division ot the line, a stretch of
503 miles from Bulawayo to the Sari-

district is a rich coal region. Further ahead are immense timber lands.
And the Johannesburg gold miners

the Le Roi* mine, now passing to
the British America Corporation,was
condemned by "experts" of high
and low degree. In the summer of
181)4 a number of corduroy-suited,
goggle-eyed mining engineers had
examined the mine and turned it
down. Their disparaging reports
had come to the ear of a local character at Worth port who assumed a
deep knowledge of mining. One
sweltering summer day he was seen
critically examining a piece of thc
ore through a pocke{ glass. After
he h.itl closely examined the specimen for half an hour, a' group of
mining men gathered around and
pressed him for a report "Its no
gitoti," he said with a knowing shake
of the head.
"What's the matter with it?"asked

"It carries too much silicum and
not enough cyanide. They'll never
pav a dividend on that rock. I went
broke in the San Juan country in
Colorado in 18D0 on just such a proposition."

A deal is on for the Washington by
which that well-known property will
pass into the hands of English capitalists. J. D. Kendall and John L.
Retallack were at the property yesterday.
The Washington is one of the oldest
shippers in the Slocan. It was staked
in '92 and since that time a large
amount of ore has been shipped and
some handsome dividends paid. The
Slocan Boy, adjoining, was recently
acquired by cash purchase by the
Washington company. There is a
tramway and concentrator on the
Washington property.
