PLUMB BYLAW QUASHED.
A Mistake Made in the Wording.
Victoria, Jan. 19,���Mr. Justice
Martin this morning gave judgment
quashing tlie Sandon By-Law providing tor tbe raising of 915,000 for
Hunting and making improvements
in tbe channel of Carpenter Creek so
as to protect the City of Sandon from
floods. Section 145, of tlie Municipal
Clauses Act provides for the council
borrowing money for such work as
"Preventing tire obstructing or foul-
trig of streams, water courses and
drains." The Judge held that the
wording of tbe bylaw in question
does not come within the terms of
Section 146, and therefore it must be
quashed with costs.

Tbe new city council held its first
meeting in the council chambers on
Monday evening, Hith intt. Mayor
Pitta was in the chair and Aldermen
Atherton, Macdonald, Thompson,
Hunter and Crawford   were present.

Tbos. Brown was recommended as
License Comissiouer.
The present officers with the ex
oeption of the night-watchmen were

The Townsite Caee.
William H.Houghton, acting as
bailiff for John Morgan Harris, on
Monday last seized the goods and
chattels of G. M. Spencer for failing
to pay ground rent for the premises
which he occupies. The goods were
taken to tlie Virginia block where
they were placed in one of tbe vacant
stores, and are advertised for sale on
the 25th dav of Januarv, Inst., under
the hand of the bailHT, William H.
Houghton.
E. A. MacDonald, a Nelson attorney, has been employed by J. M.
Harris, and spent the early part of
the week in notifying these whom
Harris claims owe bim ground rent
that they were expected to pay np or
evacuate. Nic Parlorcia is keeping
bis establishment closed from sunrise
to sunset to escape the serving of a
distress warrant. Immediate proceedings are threatened against a
number of others who refuse to pay
ground rent.
In the meantime the question of
title to tbe townsite is being contested In four different law suits, on none
of which judgment has been rendered. There is rumor also of a bill to
be introduced in tbe local house at
Victoria, to make the claim of Harris
and others valkl and to settle tbe
question of title. Tbe townsite case
promises some interesting developments.
For the Roeeland Camiosl
The Comique Closed.
After a full year of unmitigated
iniquity the Comique has been forced
to close. As was expected, the new
council refused to grant a theatre
license for the dive and the short-
frocked fairies hr.ve been forced to
desist  or  move  to  other  parts in
tarch of pastures new and suckers
green.
The Comique has been a standing
reproach to the city and it is only to
be regretted that it was allowed to
run so long. The city loses ff> a day
license fees, but gains immeasure-
ablv in respectability.
'fhe. proprietors ot the Comique
have opened a Ave cent beer hall in
the premises. This, however, is no
indication that they have turned
philanthropists.
The Sandon curling club will send
two rinks to the Rossland carnival,
as follows:
Wm. Karr, D. J. McLachlan, Wm.
Wilson, Wm. Hood skip.
A. M. Sanford, Isaac Crawford,
Alex Crawford, M. L. Grirameu
skip.
The curlers will leave on Tuesday,
the 24th, and will be accompanied
by quite a party ot pleasure seekers,
including tire wives of the members.
The junior hockey team will leave
on the same day under the care ef
Andy Grierson, who will uke charge
ot the expedition. The hoys are in
good practise and stand a very good
chance of capturing the honors. The
dance held in Virginia hall on Tuesday evening realized 965, which will
go toward paying expenses. If the
Rossland boys teat this team it is
because they are good players: W.
Cliffe, captain; R. Hood, Walter
Cliffe. C. Carney, J. Crawford. E.
Crawford, F. McKlnnon.
Roeeland Programme.
The following is the programme of
the hockey matches to be played at
the Kossland carnival: On the evening of the 26th the Rossland and
Revelstoke teams will compete In
the senior championship; on the
evening af the 27th the Nelson tesm
and the Victorias of Kossland will
compete ; tbe final game between the
winners of these two games  will be
Slaved on Saturday evening, the
3th. In the junior competitions,
the Sandon team will play Kossland
on Friday morning, the 27th, and
the winners will play the Nelson
juniors on Saturday for the champion
ship of all Kootenay. Thb Paystreak.
A Chemical Punic.
Experts in gold mining agree that
pretty much the bottom fact now
known about such metal is, briefly,
that all original pyhrites of small
grain texture contain gold to a
greater or less extent���this, of course,
not covering such secondary large
crystal pyritous deposits derived trom
. veins. It is not yet known, however,
whether the gold in these pyrites is
in chemical combination with the
sulphide of gold or whether each
minute particle of gold is simply
covered with a coating of sulphide of
iron���or. finally, whether such particles are in the metallic state, but
alloyed with silver and other metal,
which combines more rapidly with
sulphur than gold does, and, conse-
Suently, forms a coat of sulphide of
Iver over the gold. Tlie particles
of gold are so minute, and the combinations follow so rapidly during
the splitting up ot these pyrites that
the finest instruments and tests
known to chemistry have as yet been
unable to settle this part of the question to the satisfaction of all concerned���this fact showing how easy it is
to pnt in a mill that will not save the
vain
The Standard Buying Copper Mines.
The New York Herald says that
negotiations looking to the consolidation of the copper mining interests
of the United States have been in progress in that city tor a week. With
the reputed backing of no less powerful a company than the Standard Oil,
the copper mining company, in Its
combination of six plants, expects to
revolutionize the copper mining in
dnstry ef the world. The Boston A
Montana and the Butte A Boston mining companies, the Old Dominion
conitNtny of Arizona, and the Arcadian, Tamarac and Osceola mining com|��nies of Michigan are
named as the component parts of the
new organization.
It is understood that the American
company will reach into Canada and
absorb important copper mines there,
thus making the combination international, but the Calumet A Hecla
company, the largest producer in the
Lake Superior region, has so far declined to enter the combination. Interested observers of the tra natctions
of mining stocks in 189*1 declare that
a small coterie of men have added
$50,000,000 to their wealth through
this channel. The combination
springs trom the recent upheval in
copper, and the prices have soared to
the higeest figures known, in face of
unprecedented production. The increased employment of electrical
energy has caused an enormous demand'for copper. European countries
alone laat year need 466,7ti9,7ti0
pounds, and Jt is considered that the
American mines supply most of the
foreign requirements In addition to
home demands, The possibilities of
tbe copper situation become apparent.
Ancient Mines In Greece.
Tbe mines of Larium, Greece, now
worked for zinc, lead and iron, are
the same mines from which Themis-
tocles drew the silvery supply to fit
ont bis fleet and drive back the Persian invader at Salamis (490480
B. C.) and so lay the foundations of
the Athenian hegemony. It is
thought that tbe Phoenicians delved
there before the Greeks came: so
that tbe mining industry at Larium
may boast an antiquity as remote as
thirty centuries back, while in foil
blast to-day. In walking through the
French company's great mine at
Cameresa. in the heart of Larium
region, one traverses a gallery in
active exploitation for zinc and lead
close by another one worked by the
old Greeks two or three thousand
years ago. For such a "transient
industry," mining seems to evince
some permanent characteristics.
Prospecting for Oil In Michipicoton-
Manitonlin Expositor.���Mr. Booze*
of Warren, Ohio, representing the
Standard Oil Company, Mr. John
H. Fraser, of Petrolea, Ont., driller,
and four men passed through here
last Saturday on their way home.
They will return in the spring to
Msnitowaning to continue exploring
for petroleum.
Wells Farp,o Statement
John J. Valentine, president of the
Wells-Fargo A Company's Express,
has issued the usual annual statement of the production of precious
metal in the states and territories
west of the Missouri river, including
British Columbia and the Northwest
Territories, for the year 1898. The
���CTTregate values are shown as follows:
Gold. |78,4fil.202 ; stiver. 139,010.-
564; copper, Wfi.200.��48; lead, 113.
314251 ; total, fl 19,022,64$. The
commercial value at which the several metals named have been estimated are: Silver 58 cent; per ounce,
eoppar 12 cents per pound, lead 13.65
per cwt.
The gold production ot British Col
umbia and the Northwest Territories
is given  as  811,975,000,    and  the
value of the other mineral products
at 817,663,200.
Johannesburg is Silent
Cape Town. Jan 15th.���No news
has been received from Johannesburg since yestcrdsy afternoon,
when word was received that a public meeting ot British residents convened with the object of protesting
against the grievances of the Uitland-
era had broken np n a free-for-all
tight, involving Boers, Afrikanders
and Britons. Telegraphic communication is closed down, and there is
much uneasiness here.
Another U. S. Trust
The Chicago Post says: "Official
announcement has been made of the
completion of a deal which will give
the American Steel & WJre Co. ���>
practical monopoly of the wire business of the United States. Already
controlling 14 large plants, it has
concluded negotiations for the pur*
chase ot 12 more.
"The agreement provides for the
reorganization of the American Steel
A Wire Co., with a capital stock ot
190,000.000. The present capital is
124,000,000. Of the new stock $40,-
000,000 will be culmlnative preferred
and $50,000,000 common."
A rate war from New York to
Hong Kong seems probable. A Montreal C. P. R. official charges the
Great Northern with cutting rates by
f20.
Victoria Is to bave another dailv
by February 1st, to be known as the
Daily Globe. C. A. Gregg, formerly of the Victoria Times will be

114 oss. silver and 00 .per cent lead to
tbe ton, and the owners hope tn realise
a neat sum out of tbe shipment.
The result of the smelting operations
at the Hall Mines smelter for tbe four
weeks ending December 80th, 1998, are
as follows; During the il days and 18
hours of actual smelting 2,676 tons of
ore were treated, yielding 48 tons ot
copper, and 42,780 ounces of silver.
Last Saturday, at Nelson, Sheriff
Robertson sold by public auction the interest of (taudkw Besudoln in the following mineral claims: Gigantic and Grant

condition for quick trips and heavy
loads.
Kane Bros, hsve disposed of their
Craigtown business to R. E. McGanghey
and have concentrated sil their business

The Ontario, on Donadson mountain,
has been working steadily all winter,
and the shaft is down 40 feet on a tine
ore body, three*feet wide.
The Belle Singlehnrst will resume
work on the 1st of February. This property lies to ths north o* tlie Relief, snd
is a valuable gold proposition.
Tbe Arlington, three miles above Erie,
continues to ship stesdily. The new
machinery works smoothly snd stoping
will soon be commenced on the 300 foot
level.
Another permanent shipper has been
added to the North Fork, by tbe recent

adjoins tbe Second Releif on the east.
Tbe energetic president and manager
of tbe Lucky Boy Mining k Development Co., S. L. Myers, Las been concentrating most of his efforts on this
property for a year and is to be congratulated on bis success. A new
tunnel is to be started immediately
below the present workings which will
cut tbe ore body at a depth of 400 feet,
thos affording ample stoping ground.
Its close proximity to the wagon rosd
ensures cheap transportation.
ROBBRT  JAMIBSON   SUICIDES.
A despatch from Seattle says; Grown
despondent because of bis belief that be
would lose a 826,000 suit, which be had
Instituted against Sir Charles Ross for
yrofessional services rendered, Robert
amieson, the noted mining engineer
snd expert of Vancouver, took bis own
life.
Room 208 of the Rainier-Grand Hotel
one of tbe first-class hostelries of
Seattle, was the scene of tragedy. Lying upon his back in bed and with his
head and shoulders slightly elevated
by tbe prop of a pillow on either side,
tbe deceased pressed the muzzle of a
Smith and Wesson revolver against his
temple and sent a 88 calibre bullet
through tbe brain. Mr. Jamieson was
a man prominently known in mining
circles throughout tbe Province.
Mf-LTKB  FOR   CASCADE.
W. H. Aldridge, manager of the
smelter at Trail, has been to Cascade
and completed arrangements for building the new C. P. R. smelter for tbe
Boundary camp at that point.   Surveys
have been made and the site chosen.
The cost of building the smelter will
exceed $500,000. and will give steady
employment to upwards of 600 men
when completed. Tbe stack alone will
require 800,000 brick and the buildings
in connection in proportion. The
works will have a capacity of 1,000 tons
per day. It is the plan to have extensive refineries and factories in connection therewith.
WORK   ON   TUB RNTBBFBI8B.
Paddy Stratford and Eric Ferguson
have been let the contract to push work
on the Enterprise.   The No. 1 tunnel,
now in 25 feet with ore in the face, will
be pushed 200 feet further, and the
main raise between the intermediate
and No 4 tunnels will be continued to
connect these openings. The work pro*
tiosed and now under contract, will not
be finished until late In May. Eight
men will be employed.
���      Enterprise Deal  Is  OF.
The Britishers who have been dickering for tho big Errterprise mine, on Ten
Mile, have come to a full stop and the
deal is off. The reason for this is not
known here. So far as the assays and
reports were concerned, everything was
distinctly favorable. This is only one
of several attempts made to secure the
property, but the would-be purchasers
always dunk at the critical moment.
Tbe owners of the Enterprise will work
the mine themselves, though with a
small force Operations will be confined to tho No. 1 tunnel and the raise
(rom No. 8, and these will be extended
under contract. Much had besn expected of the present negotiations, the
successful termination of which would
have set the whole creek and vicinity
in motion.

It Is proposed by some prominent
Canadians to make Canada "a Link
of Love" between Great Britain and
the United States. No serious objection can be raised to this proposition,
but if Canada is to be the link then
Canadians ought to have something
to say abrxit how that link is to be
welded, and what this country Is to
get out of the love match.
Victoria got excited last week and
held an indignation meeting to protest against tbe passage of the Election Petitions Bill. It was a huge
affair, but it remained for MrrSpeak

business, and, incidental (y, the torchlight procession. Indignation is a

It says: "If the proposal ot tbe British Colombia Government to shut
aliens out of the benefits of the min
ing districts makes it harder for the
Dominion Government to secure a
treaty with the United States, the
country generally will not regret the
assurance that the Semlin-Martin
ministry hasassfe msjority. This
boldinining policy of the coast Government is timely. It comes at a
moment when it has federal as well
as provincial interest and significance.
It is a hint to the Washington Government that Canada is not 'easy,*
that a bold national spirit is spreading over Canada, that we believe we
can live, and thrive without the grace
of the republic, and that we mean to
go right along in tbe way of prosperity. Canada for the Canadians, no
matter what Uncle Sim thinks or
does. It is plain notice to the United
States that Canada Is not on Us knees

we wonder If Asiatics are not wanted here, and
would have to should the Federal authorities permit
sentimental reasons and mutterings
of unwise missionaries prevail to the
detriment of the rights and feelings
of the people of the Pacific coast, they
will be working to the moral undoing
and curse of this fair Province. British Colombia should be permitted the
same scope as In the several provinces of Australia. They are nearer
the source at Immigration and have
had ripe experience In tbe matter.
They found a simple but effectual
remedy for the evil in high taxation.
If the unwelcome Asiatics can not be
exclusively debarred, then lei them
be taxed to tbe fullest exteut, and
this system will soon work to the redemption of the situation. Tne Slocan

THE   CBlKKSa   QUESTION.    .      .
The Dominion authorities have
written the Lieutenant-Governor of
the Province, upon the representation
of the Mikado of Japan, asking for
the repeal of all legislation restricting the employment of the Japanese
in British Columbia. In addition to
this tbe Federal Government would
also like to see the Chinese similarly
treated. As if in direct opposition ro
this request and as an intimation to
the Laurier Goverment to mind their
own business and permit British Columbia to run its own affairs, the
Legislature adopted the following
resolution unanimously, oo motion of
Messrs. Helmcken and Dunsmuir:
"That an humble address be present*
edby this bouse to the lieutenant-
governor, praying him to move the
Dominion Government to take Into
consideration the desirability of Increasing the per capita tax on Chinese
coming Into the Dominion, snd urging that In the opinion of this House
three-fourths of sil moneys received
in British Columbia ports from the
present tax, or (If such tax be increased) tbree-ftartnsof such revenue
so Increased should be paid to this
Province, as the chief injury from the
presence of the Chinese Is sustained
by the Province, and not by the Dominion."

POINTS   ABOUT   ADVERTISING.
Economy is to be preached In advertising. Economy is to be preached in
everything. Advertising need not hsve
all tbe economy.
The only business maxim, that "thst
which is worth doing is worth doing
well," spplies In its full strength to ad-
vertising. Better not advertise at all
than to ttrtch it Ho sensible merchant
would think of crowding 40 cubic feet uf
mods in 30 feet guide feet of storsfs, yet
the sums merchant oftun attempts to
draw trade into his |50^ business with
advertising spses a 15,000 man woold be
ashamed of.
One may advertise too little and lose
money. One msy sdvertiss too much
and loss money. Advertising expenditure should he followed and resrulat-
ed and every advertising experiment
tested snd re-tested. Every dollar pot
oet in advertising should be watched
from the time it got* out until It begins
to eesss In swain.
Let your advertising space be ss large
ss your business. No more think of
crowding your advertising space thsn of
crowding your salesroom space. Customers sre much more important than
spacious warerooroe. Better have plenty
of wareroom spues snd plenty of advertising.
The sneceesfal advertiser invamhly has
plenty of space, and usee few words in
it; and what ia more, be never cuts his
advertising seriously during theslkgetl
dull thane. Ek|*erirnce has taught him
that about the best time to advertise ia
all the time. _____,,__,_,__

He Advneatee Absolute Free Trade In
the  Article.
D. D. Mann, the welt-known railway
contractor, was in Toronto recently,
and in the course of an interview with
a Globe representative, expressed himself thus: ''Canada Is in a flowing tide
of commercial and Industrial prosperity.
New districts are being opened up, and
extensive areas are being developed,
and railroad facilities are increasing
rapidly. Of course British Columbia
take* the lead tn mining, but there are
big developments going on in the Rainy
River district, and the future there is
of the brightest promise. Idonotssy
that* it will prove a Klondike or a Kootenay district. That is too much to
expect, for southern British Columbia
stands alone in the mining world. It
is not only rich tn gold, but it Is equally
rich in coal, in copper, in silver and in
lead Up to this time the want of railroads snd transportation facilities prevent tbe copper mines of British Co
luinbia from becoming known, bnt that
country will soon take its place as one
of the great copper-prwiucing countries.
Its vast copper deposits will do just At
much to enrich British Columbia as her
gold mines. %
Ami her lead mines are almost equally
valuable, and white 1 am referring to
British Columbia lead mines 1 would
like to call the attention of the public
to the manner in which tbe lead mining
industry is being hampered and crip-
Eled bv the tariff legislation of the
tales. Canadian rrnne-owners are
compelled to ship thjir lead ores to
American smelters fur reduction and
refining. A crushing tax of lft cents a
pound Is levied, and this lft cents a
pound is charged on all tbe lead,thougb
the smelter only pays for 00 per cent,
on the lead. The duty really amounts
to 100 a ton on the lead in tbe ores of
Canadian mines
In 1007 000,000 was paid by British
Columbia miners to Americans for the
privilege of having its ores admitted to
the United State* for treatment. Be
tween ���OOU.uou and t0_VK�� will be paid
bv the mine-owners this year for a like
{privilege. This Immense revenue ex
rat-tod from Canadian industry does
not find its way to the treasury of the
United States, for the duty of lft cents a
Kund is remitted, or rather never col
leu, when tbe lead, is re-exported
from American smelters to either Canada er England. By this system tht*
Canadian mine-owner is forced to sell
his product for about 090 a ton for the
lead contained in the ore. It is then
taken over to the United States, affords
big profits to the American transports
tion and smelting companies, snd large
and profitable employment to American
lalior.. And when that 1s done the Canadian consumer buys back nearly all
this lead and pays from 100 to ISO a
ton for It. This tremendous crushing
tax of 100 a ton should be abrogated
It is crippling the mining industry woefully.
The silver lead mining Industry oi
Canada if properly fostered will give
more employment, pay bigger wages
and enrich more people than the lumber, fishing snd sealing industries of
the Dominion combined. It Is a far
more urgent and important subject for
reciprocity arrangement between Canada and tne States thsn any other subject now under discussion before the
Joint High Commission. 1 cannot help
noticing now completely this most vital
question is being ignored by the news*
papers, while they devote column after
column and page after page to the discussion of subjects that are small and
paltry beside this.
There never was exacted a more perfect contrivance for fleecing industry
than this teed tariff, and it Is all done
to benefit not the American customs
but ths American lead smelters. They
take It all. Surely it Is time that Canadian statesmen should take a hand in
the game and obtain or make a remedy
for so great an evil. America permits
copper ore to enter free of duty. She
must let our lead ores also enter free of
duty, or else the Canadian Government
must put up the barriersagainit American lead, and by bounties and other
favors contrive the building of Canadian smelters and Canadian refineries
for lead ores.
I am in favor of absolute free trade in
lead and lead products between Canada
and the United States. Canada produces more lead than she consumes,
while tbe United States is a large im-
porter of lead. Canadian export trade
tn galena ores amounts now to fully
07,000,000 yearly. It is a growing and
expanding trade, snd it would be
enenSous if a reciprocity arrangement
were made with the States, by which
our ores would go in free of duty, and
we would admit their lead products also
free. I fear the people of Ontario and
Quebec don't understand tbe magnitude snd importance of this silver-lead
Industry. But if not hampered and
crippled hy injudicious tariffs and by
cold nv-gloct on the part of Canadian
statesmen it will rank among the greatest and richest Industries of the Domin
ion.	
of the Whole confederation, as is fairly
possible, for nowhere else in Canada are
rhe natural resources and capabilities of
the farm, forest, fisheries and mine so
well combined, and generously, not to
say lavishly, disposed. Loyalty to our
country should also operate, to incline
the people of the Province to trade the
one part with the other., in preference
to buying in other countries what can be
supplied as well by our feHow-citisens.
It is well-known, however, that patriotism cuts very little, figure when dollars
and cents are under consideration, so
thst in the esse of extending trade between the coast cities and the towns of
the interior, the competition of trade
centres across the border most be met."

rOTA   COURT   SITTINGS.
Severe! I --portent Week Kootenny Cnees
Disposed ef.
At tbe regular sittings of the Full
Court in Victoria, last week, several
important West Kootenay cases were
disposed of. In the Centre Star vs. Iron
Mask case, the Court last month refused the Centre Star appeal, asking for
leave to do development work on a
vein it claims under the Iron Mask
claim. The Court refused leave to appeal to tbe Privy Council as it would
put off the trial, which has already been
adjourned.
In Connei vs. Madden, the Full Court
dismissed the appeal from the judgment
of Mr. Justice VValkem, who held that
the location of the Sheep Creek Star
mineral claim was void, as the initial
post was planted in foreign soil, viz ,
in the State of Washington. The opinion of the, Full Court is as follows: I
*igree with the learned Trial Judge,that
the initial post of the Sheep Creek Star
claim having been planted in the United States ofAnserica, instead of within
the boundaries of this Province, the
whole location is invalid. The Mineral
Act of British Columbia does not con
template the existence of a claim which
takes its root, i.e., has its initial post, in
a foreign soil, and, as I regard it, the
whole location is void ab initio, or. to
put it tu another way, there never was
in law such a claim as the 'Sheep Creek
Star " The appeal must be dismissed
with costs.
In Da vies vs. Le Roi, the Court allowed the defendant's appeal and refused a
new trial. The action waa -brought
under the Employers' Liability Act
and the plaintiff obtained damages in
the Court below. The Full Court held
that the plaintiff was not under necessity to use the skip In qnestion and from
the rising of which the accident happened.
-KTTKR  TKADK  RELATIONSHIP.
MONOPOLY   OP. COFP_B   MINES.
The New York Herald says: Negotiations looking to the consolidation of the
copper mining interests of the United
States have been in progress in this city
for a week. With the reputed backing
of no less a powerful company than that
of the Standard Oil, -he copper mining
company, in its combination of six
plants, expects to revolutionise the copper mining industry of the world. The
Boston and Montana and the Butte and
Boston mining companies, the old Dominion Copper Company, of Arizona,
and the Arcadian, Tamarac and Osceola
mining companies of Michigan, are named as the component parts of the new
organization.
It is undefstppl thst the American
company will reach into Canada and
absorb important copper mines there,
thus making the combination international, but the Calumet and Heda company, the largest producer in tbe Lake
Superior region, has so far declined to
enter tho combination, Interested observers of the transactions in mining
stocks in 1898 declare that a small
coterie of men have added $50,000,000 to
their wealth through this channel. The
combination springs from the recent
upheaval in copper, and the prices have
soared to the highest figures known in
face of unprecedented consumption.
The increased employment of electrical
energy has caused an enormous demand
for copper. European countries alone
last year used 456,700,760 pounds and it
is considered that the American mines
supply most of tbe foreign requirements
in addition to home demands. The
possibilities in the copper situation become apparent.

Commenting upon the pressing need
of a railroad into the Trout Lake district, the Topic says:
Trout Lake is to-day in substantially
the same condition In which Slocan was
before the N. A S Ry. was built. * I* *
Were h mil road in running condition
to-day in the Trout Lake district, twice
the present amount of ore from the
whole district would be shipped by tbe
Silver Cup alone.   Then there is the
Broadview with 800 tons of ore lying on
the dump, the Great Northern with 200
and the Bad Shot with 80.   The True
Fissure has an immense ore body in
sight but until a railroad is built there
is no nossihle chance of its ever being
worked.   The reason being simply that
it is too low grade to be able to stand
present transportation charges.   Thousands of dollars have been expended on
nurds and trails In the neighborhood
and every year  the maintenance of
these is becoming more burdensome
with the wss !���_____ ~������_-
