At a public meeting held in Vir

In consideration of the fact that X<*l-
son had already lawn some time iu

the time for preparation was comparatively short, it was deemed advisable to postpone the event until
some later time and I^ahor Day,
Sept 5th, was fixed upon as tlir
date. The response financially promised to be very liberal lor a Dominion Day celebration and it will no
doubt be even better for such a celebration on Lalior Day. With all the
advantages of being early in the

There are some men in this world
who have to toil ior a mere apology
for a living, and then there a it-
others, says the ten Dieg�� Sun.
One of these latter i** Mr. Luce of
Cargo Muchaco. Luce's experience
reads like a romance. For twenty
years he had knocked about the
coast, on the desert, in the mountains, hunting pros-iccting an 1
mining, and hsd finally, by hard
work and closest economy, managed
to scrape together a few hundred
One day, on the banks of the
Colorado, some twenty miles north of
Yuma, he met an old Mexican who
told him of a deserted mine some
ten miles back from the river and
seven miles north of Hedges. Luce's
interest was aroused and he visited
thst mine, to find there an abandoned twenty-stamp mill winch had
pounded away for many years and
finally shut down. He then learned
the story. Tbe mill waa on leased
ground. The leasee had mined the
property on shares, and had done
fairly well, although the ore was
not entirely free milling. One day
the vein pinched out. The mining
man was sure he had simply lost the
lead, and it was there all right, but
the owners refused to put up a cent
to help to find it again, and, tired of
living on the desert, he threw up the
whole business and left.
Luce examined the proporty and
discovered that there was a small
mountain of tailings, accumulations
of years, piled up behind the mill.
He tested these tailings with cyanide.
Then he measured the pile roughly
and estimated thst there were over
100.000 tons of the stun* there. That
night he wrote to the president of
the company in New York, offering
them 10 cents a ton for the tailings,
on a basis of 10X000 tons. The
president read   the  letter, looked
surprised and called the directors
together. Thev read the letter,
looked wise, tapped their foreheads
significantly, and laughed to each
"This poor fellow Luce should be
called 'goose,' " said one.
"Desert's proved too much for him
-probably gone daft," observed another.
Not one of them thought those
tailings were worth anything, snd
thev* had almost forgotten that old
niitic in the Colorado desert. But
they answered the letter, telling
Luce to go ahead.
This was in April of last year.
On receipt of the letter, Luce immediately erected a cyanide plant
costing him about $1,000 of his own
and his friends money. Then he
hired fifteen Mexicans and Indians
and began work on those tailings.
The other day some representative*
of the mine company were returning
from San Francisco, and passing
through the desert, thought they
would visit the mine.
������How a re you T said Luce. "Glad
to see you. By the way- we might
as well fix up our little account now
as at any time," and so saying,
passed the astonished (Jothamites a
check for 110,000. Then he ex
plained that within the nine months
he h��d been running the cyanide
plant he had cleaned tip f 45.000. and
that there was plenty of tailing* in
sight to net him 1210,000 within thn e
years.���Western Mining World

The dividend ot 1} cents per share, or
190,000, just declared by the War Eagle
Mining Company, is equivalent to 18
per cent, per annum on tbe par value
of the stock, and  this  is likely to be
doubled in October Since the first of
the vear the stock has increased from
90 cent* to 92, and is hard to get at the
latter figure. Therefore, as the capital
stock is two millions, in share* of fl

It is believed by men high in official oii-des of nil the European powers
that the end oi the war with Spain is
close at hand.   It cannot be stayed
much longer, since Spain has not the
power to make a fight end must soon
give way to the inevitable.   Already
Senor Leon y Castillo, Spenish ambassador to   France,   Is   officially
charged to ask the powers to intervene to obtain peaee on such terms
ss would protect the honor of Spain.
The situation bus been concisely
stated by the London Daily Chronicle
thus:   ���The main outlines of the situation are made perfectly clear snd
are not likely to change.   When Admiral Cerveras whereabouts were
definitely settled a few days ago a
forward movement was ordered Instantly.   Admiral Sampson, with two
squadrons under him, hss an overwhelming force off Santiago. Through
the indiscretion of a member of tbe
house of representatives the whole
world  knows that 15,000 to 20,000
.men Is the force to be immediately
dispatched.   Porto Rico will be occupied, while a combined land tad
sea attack will reduce Santiago.   Admiral Cerveras fate is sealed with
absolute certainty.   Marshal Blanco
will be left tor another two months to
steam in his own juice.   The capture
of Manila is a mere  matter of time.
Under these circumstances it Is incomprehensible that Spain does not
mske peaee overtures.   By m> conceivable chance short of a cyclone
sending the whole American navy to
the bottom of the sea can her chances
be improved, while ever} day a bigger bill is piling up against her  She
must lose Cuba, and Porto Rico, but
it Is within tbe bounds of possibility
thus she might regain the Philippines
by b prompt capitulation.   If she pro
crsstinates much longer she may bid
farewell to the Philippines also, ttut
this is the only respect in which an
immediate cessation or the indefinite
prolongation of the war will make
any difference.   The above is not a
personal opinion, it is a series of (acts
well-known to every well Inform*d
person.   It is only the truth and the
whole troth snd nothing Brill occur to
slter it."
Witb the increased demand tor
silver by Spsln the price ot the white
metal has risen several cents during
the past few weeks. It Is rapidly
approseiiing the 60 cent mark and in
all probability will continue to go np
!so long as the demand remains. We
hsve here a slight lustration of
what would happen should the United
States or any other great power, open
its mints to the free and unlimited
coinage of the metal. Such action
would create a demand lor all the
silver In tbe world and tbe price
would naturally rise to the point
where it is as a coin metal the world
over. Thtoisirom $1.29 to $1.40 sn
ounce. It fa admitted that this would
be the outcome should the states adopt
a free coinage measure, bat the que*
tton arises, could this price be main
tained by the independent action of
any one nation? We see no ���reason
hy it could not. Not that the Unit
ed States would take all tbe available
silver at that price, but all nations
use silver as token money and in
order to keep It at home they would
be forced to pay the price at which it
could be sold for In America.
About one-ball oi the sliver In the
world is in Asia.   The coinage ratio
there is 15 to 1.   Under thst ratio an
ounce of silver will coin out $1.87.
Every ounce of silver in  Asia has
cost tbe people ot Asia $1.37, and ha*
been paid for In their export com
medities at that price. It is tbe same,
or about the same,   in all tbe Eur
opean  nations,   where  the coinage
ratio is 15 and  15| to 1 with gold.
None of this could  be shipped to
America under a tree coinage law of
16 to 1 without a" loss of from tour to
seven per cent, to tbe shipper, besides
cost of transportation.   Again, none
of the silver in Europe could be spar
ed from the  circulating  medium,
where it is now  discharging the
money function st its toil face value.
Tbe demand in Europe is tor more
silver.   8he has none to export. The
world's production of silver tor the
years 1893-4-5, rated st the ratio of
16 to 1, amounted to $T42,COQ,000 of
whieh $348,000,000 was coined into
money outside of the United States,
More than one-halt of the balance was
consumed iu the arts and manufactures.
There is no doubt that if the United
States should adopt s free coinage
measure at the proposed ratio, the
silver coinage of other countries
would be stimulated and silver would
always retain the coin price. It should
not be circulated as a debt (myIng
money for more than it is worth.
In this connection Canada's need of
a mint is again illustrated. With the
mountains of British Columbia yielding tons of silver yearly Cansds Is
forced to pay to the mother country
the highest price of the world lor
silver token money. The silver output of the mines is sold at the com
modity price, or 59| cent* an ounce,
sad the same metal stamped into coin
is bought back in commodity exports
at the rate of abou*. 11.40 an ounce.

of Slocan Mines.
In the last number of the British Columbia Review, published in London,
Eng., the following concise ststement of
the Slocan mining camps appared:

Tim largest shipping mines are either
owned by local men or controlled by
Americans, English capita] having until
t-eccetly fought shy of silver properties
in B. C, although their value, even at
the present low price of the white metal,
has been amply demonstrated by the
declaration of substantial dividends. In
the ease of those mines owned by in-
dtvtdnals it is impossibls to state the
exact earnings, but the Payne is .-audited with having netted its owners upward*
of ��4M.O0O. In the Wonderful, which
ia situated shout one mile west of the
Rath snd Hlocan 8tar, operations were
commenced by hydraulicing, a unique
method of developing a ailver mine.
Rich ore being found scattered through
tbe loose surface-slates, a stream waa
diverted and was allowed to cut its way
through this down to bed-rock; and in
this way 125,000 worth of high grade
galena ore was obtained. The water
having diaclosed the true vein, regular
underground mining was then commenced.
Of the groups of claims now owned by
English companies, among the first was
tbe Queen Be��a, situated on the east
slope uf llowson creek, and consisting of
the Queen ltt**a, American Girl, Concord,
Young I Hun i n H m. and First Extension���
in all about 300 acres. On the Queen
Bess four veins were discovered within
fits! feet.
Tbe ore is generally a finegrained,
wavy, argentiferous galena, whose metal
content* are, approximately, 82 ox. of
ailver and trj per cent, of lead. The outcrop of the vein*, so far known, extends
rmrth-eftsterly and diagonally up the hill
from Uie camp; therefore, the to nog
rapby permita development by level* or
**ht* run directly on tbe vein*, instead
of by cross-cut* through ��he barren
ground or by shafts.
Considerable development work has
been done in the various levels, amounting to about 3,000 ft. Ctrosscutting hss
exposed two valuable vein* in tunnel *,
proving to be 7 ft. broad snd carrying
3 ft. of solid galena. Tlte laatasaay from
this vein shows 287 os. of silver and 72
per cent of lead. Sixty men are work*
ing day and night. Since the Company
took over the property, shout mi tons of
ore hsve been shipped���gross value
1*50,000. The nearest shipping point is
the Idaho concentrator, a station on the
Nakusp A tftoran Railway, a branch of
the C.P.R. The mines are connected
with this railway by s wagon road 4%
miles long.
Between the south fork of t'art-enter
creek snd Poor Mile creek, at an altitude of about 7,000 ft., are situated the
Adsms Group, which consists of tlte
itrttomarte, Cnamblet, Midnight, Mammoth, snd State Fraction, which comprise in all about- 212 acres. These
were located in 1892 bv a prospector
in the employ of Captain-R. ('. Adams,
of Montreal, and he was led to think
that the discovery waa of conanteraUe
value before any work whatever had
����ccn done on it, owing to the fact that
dates were erssed snd ttapers Best roved in the Government ortiee at New
Denver, and later dates were forged in
order to dispute the ownership of Uie
property. The first development work
was done in 18H3, but they were only
able to work two months owmg to the
snow; but having got below the surface,
the extensive nsture of the deposit becoming apparent, s company waa then
privately formed in England last year,
ami work haa been continuous ever
since. At present freight snd treatment

nearest railway point, aud an aerial
tramway from the mine ia in eontetnpla-1
tion.   The gross  value  at  the present

Corn-May. A concentrating ore which is
found in ledges 3 ft. to 6 ft. in width concentrates 3 or 4 to 1. The continuity of
thb lead has been proved to a depth of
600 ft.; but the old idea that the Slocan
ot es pinch out with depth hss long since
been disproved, and in other mines even
richer ore hss been taken from 1,000 ft.
level than nearer the surface.
The Bon Ton mine which is sum owned
by this Company, is situated in Jacks on
creek basin, between Sandon and Kaslo,
about % mile from the Northern Belle;
the ore is found in bunches in veins of
quart*, and is of exceptionally high
grade. One shipment of ere not selected
showed 378 os. of silver to the ton. There
is not the same amont of ore here, bow-
ever, as in the Mount Adsms group.
This Company also owns other claims,
such am tbe Mammoth, near Ymir, the
Cordick, at Boundary Creek, the Divide
Group, near Fairview, etc.
The Whitewater mine, which has recently been acquired by the London and
British Columbia Goldfietda and floated
as a subsidiary company, consists of
four claims, the Whitewater, Irene,
Myrde R. snd Tenrie C, located about
one mile north Of Whitewater station.on
the Kaslo A Slocan Railway, 18 miles
west of Ksslo. This property hss paid
for itself since its discovery, high-grade
silver ore having been mined from the
grass roots without any expense being
eutailed on the owners. In the Provincial Mineralogist's report on the
Slocan district, issued in January, 1807,
ho speaks very highly of this property,
and states that work has been confined
almost entirely to development. At
that time on tne surface the vein had
been disclosed for 800 ft. Tbe Charleston, which ia higher up the mountain, i*
reported to hsve recently struck some
very rich ore. The Whitewater up* to
January, 1898, had paid 1123,000 in dividends.
Concerning the depth of these rich
ailver veins, tbe following appeared recently in a provincial contemporary:
"The strike of arht inches of ore, msde on
the 8th of March in the tunnel on the
Whitewater Deep, at a depth of 1,000
ft from the apex, hss widened to an
18-inch body of clean ore. A drift has
been driven alongside the ore body during the past 10 dsvs, and it is looking
better each day. Tbe ore is of the same
character sa that in the Whitewster
mine,and the management of the Whitewater Deep is satisfied that tbe object in
running the long tunnel ia that property
has been attained, namely, the development of the main lead of the famous
Whitewater mine at great depth on the
Whitewater Deep ground."
With reference to the suspension of
ore shipments from the Whitewater
mines, which occurred on February
12th, thia has been entirely dne to the
unusual severity of the season snd the
most exceptional weather occur ing this
year far earlier than is generally the
ease. Shipments were continued as
long sa possible until the condition of
the weather made same unduly costly,
and were consequently suspended for
the time.
We have not beard that shipments
have been resumed, although we are
led to believe that such is the case
when, judging from the latest reports
from the mine, the shareholders will
have no cause to complain of the results.
The effect of the weather upon the
Whitewater mine has not been exceptional as compared with others in the
same district, all being relatively affected in the same manlier For the months
of November, December and January
last, and we believe, until shipmeuts
from the mine were suspended In February, the Whitewater mine was the

The cutting of the Whitewater vein,
in the deep lead property adjoining the
Whitewater, we understand, occurred
at a point where the Whitewater Company's property is narrowest on the dip
of the vein, and is viewed with great
satisfaction, not only by tbe directors
of the Whitewater Company, but by all
others connected with the mines of the
district, as clearly proving the continuation of these silver veins in depth.
Although no exact figures are yet
forthcoming, we understand the vein
was cut by this deep lesd tunnel 1,000
ft. below the outcrop of the Whitewater
We reproduce a photograph showing
tbe town of New Denver, situated on
the eaa{ side of Lake Slocan. In the
distance will be seen the location of the
Galena Mines, Limited. This Company
was brought out by the Vancouver and
British Columbia General Exploration
Company, Limited.
The property of the company consists
of six claims, having a total area of
about 93 acres. The distance of these
claims from the town of Silverton is
some 2 miles by -road,ami from tbe lake
about 11 miles.
In February there was a change in
the management, Mr. Fraser, a mining
engineer of experience, being appointed to manage the affairs of the company. A good deal of development
work has been done on the property;
and the main shaft has been sunk to a
depth of 200 ft. At the 100-ft. level the
lodge has been drifted on in payable ore
for some 450 ft: and at the 200-ft level
some 400 ft. of drifting has been done,
and the manager hopes to reach the
lode verv shortly. Seventeen men are
now working on the property.
Since Mr. Fraser took charge, an air
compressor and machine drills have
been erected, whereby the progress hss
been greatly increased. The plant haa
given great satisfaction, and is second
to none erected.
Tbe property is most advantageously
situated, having tbe greatest facilities
for being worked by water-power. The
water is carried on* to the mine from a
neighboring creek, and by this means
ample power has been obtained todrive
the necessary machinery. When visited by Mr. Carlyle, the Provincial
Mineralogist, 189S, he proclaimed it to
be one of the most promising prospects
in the districts, ami though, in the first
instance, much mismanagement was
shown in the development of the mine,
all this haa now beau changed, and the
latest reports from the Province are
most encouraging The presence of
sine in the ore is not so great as was at
first supposed, and there now seems
every likelihood of the mine fully bearing out the favorable anticipations
which were at first held.
The B. C. Minerals Properties, which
was brought out this vear with a capital
of ��-200,000, own *the Bear Nest and
Silver Tip. These claims lie between
Lemon and Springer creeks, in close
proximity to the proposed ratlwav running along the east bank of the Slocan
river. These properties contain about
101 acres, and are situated about a mile
and a half from Slocan City. The lodes,
on which active development work is
now being done, carrv ore a vera ting
from ItO to $*�� ingold* Although those
claims are not situated in the neighborhood of the mines above referred to,
which are in the "wet ore" belt, it is
considered that the mines of Springer
and Lemon creeks are likely to be as
large producers as those to the north.
The Idaho-Alamo mines passed under
the control of the Scottish Colonial Gold-
fields, Limited, last year, and much
work is now being done to develop
these, and also the Cumberland Group,
while the concentrator has also been
considerably improved.
The Associated Gold Mines of British
Columbia Company, which has quietly
been acquiring properties in every
mining camp of importance throughout
the Province and is now credited with
tho possession of upwards of 100 mineral-bearing claims, has not neglected the
! '

Slocan, which has proved so profitable
to prospectors and American investors.
In looking over their schedule, which,
we are informed, will make its public
appearance on June 6th, one notes that
they appear to have acquired properties as near as possible to all the best
known mines, not only, in East and
West Kootenay, but also at Kamloops,
Harrison Lake, Lillooet, and on the
coast, upwards of SjOOO acres in all.
Their interest in the Slocan consists at
present of the Chilcat and  Delphian
claims.  These are situated on Lemon
creek, a quarter of a mile from Great
Falls.   The Alpine and Black Prince
groups sre in the near neighborhood.
This portion of the Slocan differs considerably in the nature of its ore-bodies
from the galena ledges now being worked in the neighborhood of Sandon,
which are what is termed "wet ores.
The Lemon snd Springer creek mines
are in the "dry ore belt-aadahow good
values in gold  in addition to silver,
whereas little or no gold is found in the
former district.   Assays of the. Chilcat
and Delphian show $12.60 in gold and
60 oz. in silver.   These result* were
obtained from ore taken out before any
great depth had been obtained, and
must be regarded as highly satisfactory;
and the presence of gold values such as
these lead mining men in that district te
apprehend greatly  increased   values
with depth.   However, as the silver
values alone, even at the present depreciated price of the white metal, are
more than sufficient to pay all expenses
of mining and treatment with a substantial margin,   any   further   gold
values will show a very handsome
profit, considerably ia advance of any
yet obtained from the mines in the
pyrrhotite belt at Rossland, which, being highly refractory and expensive to ,
mine, cannot yet shows very large surplus on ISO ore, winch  is somewhat
above the average now being shipped.
New reduction processes and cheaper
freight will enable many of those mines
to be  profitably worked; but in the
Slocan district,  in spite of the heavy
cost of freight and the onerous lead
duty imposed by the United-States, the
fact remains that thev can stand SBD to
$40 per ton  in  freight and treatment
charges alone.   This is greater than
the gross value of the ore at Rossland!
This Company owns other silver-bearing properties���the I.X.L. group on the
Larueau is in the neighborhood of the
Sunshine and Silver Cup As this ore
belt is at present less easily accessible
than the Slocan, it lias not been found
profitable to develop claim* on a large
scale and make big shipments, but all
mining experts who Lave visited these
deposits are agreed that it is only a
question of transportation facilities'be-
fore the Lardeau is aa well kuown and
profitable an ore-producer as its southern rival. The Badshot group, also in
the 1 *rdeau,shows a typical Slocan ore,
averaging from 150 to 1,500 oz of silv ��r
and from 60 to 80 per cent, of lead. The
lead values in this case will pav all
expenses, leaving the silver a* a net
The shipments during the first three
months oi 1898 from 20 leading mines of
the Slocan over the Kaslo & Slocan
Railway are aa follows: Payne mine,
2,550 tons; Whitewater, 1*580; Last
Chance, 1.064; Ruth, 1,080; Luckv Jim.
900; Montesuma, 483; Rambler, &**���
Reco. 260; Slocan Star 217; Queen Bess,
140; Antoine, 99; Dardanelles, 48:
Eureka, 42; Ajax, 84; Charleston, 80:
Jackson,82; Sovereign.20; Goodenough.
20: Gibson, 10; Fidelity, 15.
The net profit per ton on these ship
inents can be roughly estimated at ��lo
It is thus evident that both from tin-
point of view of quick and profitable
returns the Slocan mines are by far the
most valuable in British Columbia, and
thev must now be regarded as the
richest group of silver-lead deposits iu
the world Having been proved to a
depth of 1.000 ft. the permanencv of the
veins *s fully established.
It -s claimed thst the mines of thi*
section of the Sloan, are producin;/
silver at a less cost per ounce than anv
oilier mines in the world; and this, too.
with the wages of miners at $8.50 per
day snd laborers ta.oo per day.   The
lead in the ore often more than pay* the
charges of trsnsportatlon, smelting, and
dUTne records at the present time show
97 mines snd prospects thst have shipped paying ore in this mineral oeit,��
of which have paid dividends.
The production from these mines has
greatly increased each ���racceedlng year
since their discovery.
We have frequently drawn the attention of our readers to the Slocan as
offering more opportunities for remunerative investment than, perhaps, any
other portion of B.C. In eompatlug
the Slocan with the Trail Creek district,
it will be observed that the cost of mining is verv much less expensive, while
the gross returns are nearly three times
larger. The average net profit per ton
In Rossland ores is probably not much
over ��2, while in the Slocan shipments
It will average ��11. ���
Another point of deep significance to
mention is that, whereas the Slocan
shows an increase in the value of the
output as development increases, Trail
Creek shows a decrease. This can be
observed from the following figures:
In 1885the pvrrhoUte ore* (Rossland
average*! in value $85.87 per ton on
19,898 tons, and in 1895 the average was
$82.67 on 88,075 tons.
The Slocan output of 1895 show* an
average value of $109.?2 per ton on
9,619 tons, and in 1UB3 the average was
$110 35 on 18,215. It will be noted that
the increase in the output of these
camps shows an equal gain of, roughly,
about 100 per cent., which maRestbe
above comparison the fairer: but an
other point in favor ot the Slocan ia that
it was able to show an inerease in
values in spite of a continuous fall in
the price of silver.
Says the Toronto Telegram to the
' It is too bad that President Robert
Jaffray should make sue Globe a

following half truth:

Tlie New York Journal, the
yellowest of the yellows, has parsu-
aded itself Into the belief that its
reader* will believe anything. Accordingly it dishes up such intelligence as thi* ; "The strength of the
fleet now before Santiago is greater
than that of sny massing of warships
In modern times." The Journal
evidently alludes to the fleet it would
like to see before Santiago.
In a few day a after hinperor William sent hi* n--ii blew line note to
Panl Kruger, and when, tor the
moment tin* warTtond looked black,
Great Britain massed the great
White Fleet which probably had
more ImtUeshiu* than the United
States has warships, counting skiffs
snd scows. Certainly this Is true of
the fleet maased st the Jubilee, the
s*reate*rt fleet that any country could
get together in modern times, the
greatest fleet ol the greatest naval
nation in the world.

that all the money and genius which
Canada has employed to attract immigration hss been and is being

that if SIOO.OOO had been appropriated to prospect the Kootenay country,
the wealth of the mineral resources
of the district which Is now attracting
the attention of the world might have
been discovered ten years ago, and
the fame of this wealth would have
brought more people to Canada than

Satis Le Roi Will Not be Sold.
Have you any objection to statin
the present statos of the Le Roi
deal ?" was the question put to Senator Turner hy a Spokesman-Review
reporter on Monday.
"None whatever," he replied. A
bare majority of stockholders are in
favor of ratifying the attempted
sale. * Almost one half of the stockholders are opposed to it. Those In
favor of the sale arc now taking the
position that under the act of British
Colombia passed in 1897, a bare
majority is sufficient to ratify the
sale. But in this they are mistaken.
I have myself examined the law
carefully and have taken advice of
the best'legal talent in British Col-
um hia. I do not think I hazard
anything in saying that the present
attempted sale will never be carried
The Silcer Cup.
D. G. Katon returned last night

At the time we left Sandon it was
mv intention to give you a weekly
correspondence with particulars of
progress and development ou the
promising claims of Cariboo Creek,
but on arrival here I found that we
had forgotten several indispensable
articles, including stamps and paper.
I have some en velopes, found some
paper at the Chieftain camp, borrowed a lead pencil from another pros-
pector who chanced along the trail,
und hope to get a stamp from some
party yet unknown; this letter to
Arrived at Burton City, we met
Jas. Christie, of Sandon, on his way
to Nakusp to record a dud made
while digging a trail to their other
claims. He had pieces of solid galena
weighing about 20 pounds which he
had broken from chunks of ore ss
la**ge as a caudle box. We went np
to see the find. It was one of the
handsomest things I have seen for
many a day. There are four Sandon
people interested, Messrs. Christie,
Watts, Buckley aud Sharp. I understand they have given an option on
the property till Dominion D.iy. The
figure is $��>,00J. Besides this claim,
which they have named the Kincardine, they have seven other claim*
on Silver mountain, known as tbe
Silver Mountain group. The most
promising location ot this group is
the Victoria, which has a two-tout
ledge very much similar to that of
the Kincardine. Since coming in
this spring they have cut two miles
and a naif of good trail up the mountain to their claims, have built
cabins, and are now ready to take
out ore. Adjoining these claims on
one side is the well-known Millv
Mack, a valuable property which is
tied up in litigation, and on the
other the Moffat group, of which considerable has been heard.
The Silver l^ueen management, I
am informed, are in with a force of
men to install a compressor plant.
The owner of the Vivian L is here
with a crew to begin work on that
property. The Vivian L is a low
grade free milling proposition with a
' wide ledge which should be very
easily worked. As there has been
but little development yet I can give
but few particular*.
Two men are working on the
Proctor Knot. They have a line
showing of ore.
The Eureka men went out just before we came in. This is a stocked
claim and ia considered one of the
good ones.
The Fairy Queen, just over the
divide from the Vivian L, has been
worked all winter and tbe owners
now have over a hundred tons of ore
ready fbr shipment. They have
built a trail to Trout creek at the
head of Slocan lake and will ship
that way. *"^^^^^
There are many other prom:
mit. One man we met on the trail
on his way out. He said he had
been doing assessment. He produced a-hatchet and pencil to corroborate his statement. This kind of
work keeps the camp back but we
hope to see some good development
on Cariboo creek this summer nevertheless.
Pbospbc-tob Bill.
It is stated on what mav be deemed good authority, that the gold production of the world, during 1897,
amounted to ^240,000^000. It Is not
improbable, considering the unusual
energy put into gold mining that the
output for the present year will be
equal to that sum, and perhaps
greater, says the Miuing and Metal*
lurgical Journal.
The estimate is that no more than
two-fifths of last year's output will
ultimately find its way to the mints,
so great is consumption in the arts
and manufactures. As the tendency
of all nations is to the gold standard,
there is likely to be a considerably
larger demand for gold for monetary
uses. It is stated by good authority
that the addition of 1100,000.000 an*
nuslly will not keep pace with the
growth of commerce, for thr*ugli
machinery and more scientific methods, production is becoming greater
and less expensive, and it is well
known that the extent of consnatp
tion depends in a measure upon the
volume of production.
Consumption  of  gold,   otherwise
than in mintage and monetary uses,
will  not decline, but, on  the con
trary. it will continue to toe-tate
greateres the world grow*richer.
The Stock of gold now in existence,
and which te devoted to monetary
uses, Is alleged to be |4,OJO,00O,(JfJ0.
If the world wholly goes to the gold
standard, this sum  will furnish the
basic of redemption money to accotno
date the vast commerce of the world,
both  international   and   domestic.
There are no statistics showing the
volume of the world's commerce.
Tbe present commerce of the United
States averages about $1,750,000^000,
and its domestic c��>mnierce Is more
than  ����,000.000,00a   The foreign
commerce of Great Britain Is 13.335,.
000,000, aad her domestic is perhaps
ia0,000,OJ0,000.   Taking these  h>
urea as a basis, It is seen that the
eomroerce of the world international
and domestic, must run into hundreds oi billions of dollars.   Ins few
years, at farthest, the practibility of
tbe sln/le gold standard  will be
thoroughly tested.

Tuesday evening a special meeting
of the Political Campaign Club was held
In Clever'* hall, in honor of the presence
of John L. Ratal lack, the proposed Government nominee for M.P.P. of the
Slocan Riding. Mr. Retallack appeared
before tbe club not yet a* a nominee,
but simply ss a private individual, and
his sddrest wa* in the tone of a quiet
talk as such to the club members, setting forth hia individual view* regarding local Interest* of New Denver and
vidnily. He highly commended the
ritisensof New Denver in sn success-
fully organising a campaign club, and
regretted that the citisens of sister
towns had failed to co-operate and
secure for themselves proper recognition from the Government aa New Doner has done.
Mr. RstsJlaek was not prepared to
delve Into the larger political questiona
of the day, hot hoped to be able, when
he had shaped hia campaign and started
on his tour of speech making, to meet
Mr. Green before the club, when he
would take up the greater questions.
His present trip to tbe Slocan lake waa
not to open the caiiipaifipi, nor to pre*
��ent hi* political views to tbe people.
He would do this later. He was travelling now as*a private citizen on business
bent. He gave a brief review of what
be had been able to team the Government intended doing in the way of
public work in and about New Denver,
which.in a nutshell, mean* the carrying
out of the expressed wish of the club,
made by ���resolution some week* ago.
It will mean the expenditure of 110,000
or more hereabout*, and the making of
New Denver a county court centre,
with all the office* affixed thereto
The meeting .was sjldressed briefly

will visit Slocan City and Silverton this
week, and hopes to return here in a

In addition to the public work being
done on tbe streets of New Denver, the
Government will start next week with
a large force of men on the Three
Porks, Silverton and Four Mile wagon
roads, and these public highwsys will
he put in condition for tbe heavv travel
that is waiting their repair and widen -
The bad condition of the Four Mile
road has greatly retarded work in the
big Four Mile'mines. The forces of
workmen have been reduced to the

bv the Government on this highway:
9&,000on the Three Forks road, and
probablv si.500 on the Silverton road.
In all about S10,000 will be expended
on the roads alone. In addition to this
New Denver will receive for public improvements about $1,800: ***> for vault

allowance of 8260 for Are hall *nd tire

been secured, but will In all likelihood
come, since this is a most necessary expenditure, and must be made, if not by
ihe Government then by the dtlseni of
New Denver. A suitable 6re hall and
adequate apparatus is essential to the
welfare of the town ��� Led***
Work is being rapidly pushed for
ward on the Gold Queen snd Mulligan
claims, which adjoin the .Jubilee, near
Ymir. The lead on the Gold Queen can

granite and slate. The jW**k.
which is now about nine inches wide, is

Bavaral  Chans**  M*d* That  Halp  Sa
Mali* th* Law Clear.
The last legislature got in it* work on
the mineral law snd made severs!
change* that settle disputed points and
make the law clearer in many respect*.
The first amendment refers to the
location of fractions. In all fractions
surveyed from now on whether staked correctly or 'not, the surveyor may
adopt the boundary lines of the surrounding claim* provided no side exceeds 1,500 feet in length. In other
words, Uie locator is entitled to tbe
vacant ip-onnd that he claims, even if he
doss not stake it in snch * manner ss to
include it all. W"
By a recent decision of the court* in
the Mollie Gibson esse a prospector lost
a claim because of inability to secure the
post necessary to mark the location. The
amendment provides that in case* where
claims sre staked above the timber
line, or the prospector cannot secure the
necessary posts, be may erect monuments of earth or stone.
In staking an extension the post* sre
often planted so as to form s wedge-shape
fraction between two ends of the two
claim*. These fractions have often incurred great expense, not only in recording ana surveying, but in esse* where
they carry the lead, snd thus become of
such value ss to promote litigation. Tbe
amended act authorises the surveyor to
include such fraction, provided it does
not cover more thsn 61.66 acres, the area
of a full claim, and provided further that
two location posts sre together.
By failure to record assessment work
within tbe required period of one year,
either through oversight or misunderstanding of partnership interests, valuable chums have oeen lost. Now if a
prospector fails to record the work within
a year, *lthou*-h the work hss been done,
he hss 88 dayr additional time in which
to make the record by payment of van
extra 810. Another change 1-egardin?
the sassssment work i* in that particular
which called for work to the amount of
$100 each year. Now a miner may do
and record aa many assessments ss he
plesses in a year by paying tbe recording
fee for each assessment done to the extent of $100.
In case anybody should sdverse sn
application for a certificate of improvement snd Crown grant, the contestant
must have hi* chum surveyed immediately and file a plan and signed by an
authorised Provincial land surveyor with
the writ.
To obtain a Crown grant in 1886 it wss
neceesary to do sssesament work to the
amount of $500 and to have the elaim
surveyed, which meant another $100. In
1897 the act was amended so ss to provide that up to Mav 1, 1808, the cost of
such survey should count ss work done
on the claim, not to exceed $100. A sur*
vev generally costs $100. The last legislature extend* the time to May 4,1899.
Hereafter the* adverse proceedings in
connection with the title to mineral
claims, before any court, each party to
the proceedings shsll give sffirmstive
evidence of title. Heretofore the burden
of proof was on the contestsnt.
The fee for recording sssessment work
hss been reduced from $2.76 to $2.50.
Heretofore the fee for recording sssess-
ments haa been 26 cent* higher than
other fees. .
Anybody who pulls down a legal post
erected to mark a boundary or location
of;a mineral claim, orany writing by law
required to be thereon, is liable to imprisonment for six month* or a fine of
$2.M), or both. This is supposed to be
directed particularly toward preventing
the use of old posts by people whore-
stake s clsim snd sometimes destroy
evidences of a prior location^

A good Harrison Lake story is told by
prospectors relative to the stampede to
Fire Mountain in  the early spring of
1897.   Tbe snow  was from 6 to 10 feet
deep, but that did not present any difl)-*
colty to the explorers or prevent them"
from staking claims, end,.matting one
post ss discovery stake.   The limbs and
top of a pine tree were cnt off, and the
stump squared to 4 in., the regulation
dimensions.   Later, when tbe snow bad
melted, other prospectors earns along
and finding no marks on the surface to
indicate that any location bad been msde,
started in to survey off and stske claims.
About the time they had made an actual
discovery the men who had staked on
the snow  returned  to do sssessment
work, and found the stump* they had
used for location stakes, but were obliged
Ao trim the lower limbs off snd climb up
from 12 to 15 feet to reach a point high
enough to mad their notices.   Tbe later
locators recognised the priority of the
winter prospectors' claims, and it is expected that this year's assessment work
will result in opening up a mining camp
on Fire Mountain.

SANDON. B. C, JUNE 18, 1898
Last year the Yukon country yielded
���2,(100,0000 in gold. This year $15,000,000
worth will be taken out   There is, Mr.
Ogilvie says, at least $100,000,000 to
come.   Four years ago, the Manitoba
wheat crop, which is better than gold,
was 17,000,000 bushels.   Thia year tbe
yield will be 50,000,000 bushels.   The
North-West is progressing in like proportion.   Two years ago, tbe great coal and
mineral territory along the Crow's Nest
Railway could not be got at.   This year
by October next, the line will be completed to Kootenay lake, and a vast increase in development and in trade will
take place.   Three -rears ago there were
men  in Osnsds, tohrewd fellows they
thought themselves to be, who hsd little
faith in the future of tbe Canadian
Pacific Railway.   To-day a proposition is
on foot to vastly increase the efficiency
of that line, and to, at aa early day, provide for a double track from Winnipeg to
the Pacific terminus.   Meanwhile, it it
intended to so increase tbe efficiency of
the line, by needed works at various
points, ss to enable the C.P.R. trains to
make tbe journey from Montreal to
Vancouver in 100 hours.   This is a rapid
sge, snd Canada means to keep up with
the procession.
More snd more the power of the srmy
and the army chiefs casts its advancing
shadow over the scene. This was very
evident in the Dreyfus case. The nation
cannot put up with anarchy or with total
instability of government, snd the maintenance of stable government under tbe
Republican system seems to beslmost
hopeless in France. That country bss
now had s century.of political change,
for the most part violent and convulsive.
She hss hsd the National Assembly, the
Convention, the Directory, the Cpn-
sulste, the Empire, the restored Empire,
the Bourbon Monarchy a second time
restored, the constitution*! monarchy of
the House of Orleans, the Republic, the
Septennate, the second Empire and
finslly the Republic once more. Yet she
seems no nearer tbe haven of rest than
ever. The fall of tbe Xrencb Republic,
if it comes, will be a hem*y blow to popular government, which in all countries is
manifestly on it* trial.
Tbe war party at Washington brought
on, and must have known that it was
bringing on, war by refusing to consider
the Spanish offers, ordering Spain to
haul down her flag and thus compelling
her to fight for her honor. For her
honor and for that of all nations threatened, like her, by overbearing violence
Spain has fought and Med. Nor will
history fail to do her justice. She has
now surely done enough. She cannot
hope to hold Cuba close to tbe shore of
sn enemy with infinitely superior resources snd divided from her own shore
by the Atlantic. The conflict is useless,
snd humanity demands that it should
It is not tbe least of evils attendant on
the war that people sre led to look on
bloodshed ss sn exciting spectacle and
only wish that the combatants should
show "sport." They read witb unconcern that s city ?��� suffering "all tlte horrors of a siege." The dire realities of
these horrors, the people devouring grass
and digging lor carrion, the starving
child crying ta vain for food to Its famishing mother, sre not present to their
minds, any more than are the agonies of
the sinking ships or the crowded hospital. Presently we may have Malay
atrocities added to Cuban carnage and
famine. That a set of unscrupulous
politician* should be able for their persons! or party purposes to bring these
calamities on mankind is one of the
mysteries which, if the world ia really
under moral government, m*y find their
solution hereafter. At slfevents, Spain
has done all that honor can demand,
and she may now, without disgrace, give
ear to the voice of humanity. In tbe
Ices of distant and discontented dependencies she would, if she knew Iter own
interest, recognize a gain. Empire,
diverting tbe energies oilier people, from
Sreductive industry to territorial aggran-
iiement has been her greatest curse,
snd did, in fact, more to bring about her
ruin than any other of tbe cause* to
which it is commonly ascribed. Its final
surrender may restore her to berself.snd
the Isat day of Imperial pride may he
the first of national regeneration.
From tbe numerous enquiries that
are being made by intending gold seekers snd- prospectors concerning the
Omineca and Skeena River district*, it
may be inferred that this northerly sec
tionof the Province, once before the
scene of a gold excitement, will a^ain,
and doubtless during the late *i>riii"
and early summer months of the pre*-
ent year, be visited by hundreds of
white men, intent on the search for the
precious metal. Omineca is a district
of great mineral possibilities. Its
climate for six months of the y.*��r that
Is, from May to October, is delightful-
,     .... v       game is abundant; the streams ere full

Tbe Prime Minister, when he is asked
what majority in favor of the plebiscite
he will deem sufficient to warrent legislation, naturally parries the question,
wishing to leave himself s free hand.
But he can hardly fail to see that it will
be necessary to hsve s majority Iroth of
the whole electorate of the Dominion and
of the whole electorate of each province.
Nothing lees, apparently, will suffice to
secure the practical execution of a lew
against which not only the taste* and
interests, but tbe moral conviction, be it
right or wrong, of a large body of citisens, and their sense of justice will certainly continue to rebel. From a large
proportion, even of those who will vote
for the law, only a lukewsrm jupport of
its execution can he expected The man
who would readily help to arrest * murderer or a thief, will not, even if he
believes beer pernicious, help to put s
neighbor in jail for drinking or selling a

Ip him to escape. Such is the well-
known infirmity of all sumptuary legislation. If the result of tbe plebiscite
should be s small majority for prohibition iu the Dominion generally, with a
majority against it in Quebec, the situation of the Government will be extremely awkward. Tbe plebiscite is a weak
device for the evasion of parliamentary
���responsibility, and it is not unlikely to
end in a fiasco.
The excitement of the war has turned
away our eyes from an evnt of not less
importance. A general election bss
taken place in France, and according to

Mr. Gilbert Parker and his mother
are in Toronto this week. On Monday
evening Mr Parker delivered an address, or more correctly a talk, in the
ball of the Canadian Institute, to the
members of the Women Canadian Historical Society. He also lectured at
Trinity University on Tuesday, on
'���The Art of Fiction " Robert Barr, the
novelist, snd his sister were also in Toronto this week. Mr. Barr was an un
expected guest at the dinner given bv
the National Club to Mr. Parker.
The Dominion Government intends,
during the race**, to appoint a commission to take up the question of railway
transportation, with a view of appointing a permanent commission to deal
with tbe whole subject. The late Dalton
McCarthy devoted a greet deal ol his
time and attention to this matter and
had a resolution on the order paper for
several session*, but nothing came of it.
���Mr. Blair, the Mrnister of Railways, deserves the credit of appointing this
commission. Western Canada suffer*
more from high rail wav rate* than from
a protective tariff. The power of the
railway* is lncrea*ing so rapidly that,
if they'chose to. they could control tbe
parliament of the Dominion.
The Britiah Government is about to

route between Europe and America is

there could not only protect Its own

ally crossing tbe Atlantic, but could

s worthy snd dangerous foe. On the

snd surrender, unhesitatingly chose the

rendering s good account of the enemy,
whose victory wss purchssed at an
enormous sacrifice.
In the matter of food tbe peninsular
soldier is easily satisfied and no great
charge on the commissariat. Two meals
a day suffice him, and those are scanty
enough. In some ''smart'' corps coffi*
and soup sre showed early in the morning, but the average soldier feeds only st
9 a.m. and sgsin st 5 p.m. One and a
ball pound* of bread, and black at that,
is tbe entire ration allowed per day by
the government. Any additional luxuries, **ve the mark, must be purchased
out of his own pocket st the regimental
canteen, which is kept within reasonable
bound by a regimental committee. The
private eat* little or no meat, especially
when in active service, snd to this is
attributed  the wonderful  recuperative
Eower of Spanish soldiers, their wounds
i*aling extremely easy and rapidly. On
the march our don is satisfied with a
chunk of dry black bread, a little oil and
a clove or two of garlic, the whole washed down by a modest allowance of water.
Truly a fighting ration that the Ameri;
can soldier would find it hard to
stomach. No wonder the typical Spaniard is lean and evil smelling and unwholesome looking.

The Spanish soldier, as deseribed by

presents a picture the reverse ot inspiring.  A* lie slouches along on the march,
unkempt, unshorn  and tatterdem*lion,
the sight of him  in  the ranks would
break the heart of an English or Oerman
