J. D. Sibbald, Gold Commissioner!
received a letter from the Minister of
Mines, Hon J. Fred Hume, requesting his resignation, io take effect on
January 15th, giving as a reason
that his actions had not been conductive to the interests of Revelstoke.
Mr. H. N Coursier is spoken of as
his successor, but it is not definitely
known who will succeed him.
Kaalo Election.
In Kaslo this year interest ran
high in the municipal election. C.
W. Me Ann and Dr. Hartin had a hot
race for the Mayor's chair, Hartin
winning it by two votes.
Messrs. Kane, Twiss, Campbell,
Fawcett, Papworth and Moore are
the aldermen for the year. There
was a hot time in old Kaslo when tbe
fight was over.

assay values of which are 250 ounces
silver and 70 per cent. lead.
The company now have two cars
of this ore out and the ore in the

evening to raise a fund to go to the
Rossland carnival.
The Cosgrove concert last night
was well attended. Tbe peoformance

last production here.
Elected bu Acclamation.
The following is the personnel! of
Sandon's civic administration for tbe
present year : Mayor, IL H. Pitts;
Aldermen: Alex. Crawford, E. R.
Atherton, C. D. Hunter, Eri. Thompson, John Buckley and Robt. Macdonald.
The mayor and council were all
elected by acclamation. As there
are only eleven men in the city who
hold the necessary qualifications for
tbe offices, it was with some difficulty
that a sufficient number was found
willing to assume tbe duties. Tbe
competition seemed to be rather to
evade than to acquire aldermanic
distinction. This, however, might
well be put down to the modesty of
the gentlemen.
Messrs. Cunning and Mighton of
the old council retired. Messrs.
Switzer and Broddy are not now residing in town. C. D. Hunter is the
only member of last year's council
whose name is found on tbe list
E. R. Atherton had no aspirations for
a second term in the high chair, but
was prevailed upon to take a place
on the council board.
The members of. the council and
the mayor sre so well known in the
community that anything biographical would seem superfluous here. It
is sufficient to say ths.t their well-
known integrity and ability assures
the city a careful and conscientious
administration for the current year.
The Power ol Electricity.
An interesting experiment in burning steel with electricity is to be
tried in Cincinatti in an effort to remove a safety vault that was built
forty years ago. The vault has long ���
been in disuse and the room occupied
by it is wanted for other purposes.
The walls are constructed of layers
hard spring steel, 11 inches io thickness. Two operators will be placed
in the vault, each with a carbon attached to a feed wire. The men will
wear heavy rubber gloves and
specially constructed goggles to protect their eyes from the intense light
Tbey will pan tbe carbons over tbe
waifs of the vault burning them in
intersecting lines. A somewhat aim*
ilartestof electricity was made in
Washington about two years ago,
when a nole large enough to allow
the passage of- a man was burned
through the wai Is of one of tbe large
government vaults in twelve minutes.

means of expelling the hypocrite.
Montrouge, who has just returned
from a 70 years' residence within a
few miles of the North Pole, tells of a
curious custom existing among a
colony of Poles who dwell there.
The woman is the.head of the house
and family, and she has an ingenious
system of keeping her husband out
of mischief d uring her absence. Tbe
method is simplicity itself. As she
is leaving she pours a pailful of snow
water over the entrance of the snow
hut. This Instantly freezes, and the
husband is thus safely imprisoned
within the house, as he is too lazy to
dig out, and is therefore compelled to
stay at home until tne return of his
lady. Unfortunately climatic condition and others (prevent the adoption of this system in this country,
where something of the sort is much
needed.   -
A clergyman hi thus quoted in the
Interior ot Chigago: "At my time of
life I ought not to be stunned by'any-
thing; but after service a good
woman of my flock did manage to
take my breath away. I was preaching about the Fathers tender wisdom
in caring for us all," be said. "I
illustrated by saying that the Father
knows which of us grows best in
sunlight and which of ns must have
shade. 'You know you plant roses
in the sunshine,' I said, 'and heliotrope and geraniums; but if von
want your fuchias to grow they niust
be kept in a shady nook.' After the
sermon, which I hoped would he a
comforting one, a woman came to me,
her face glowing with pleasure that
was evidently deep and true.   'Oh,
Dr. , fain so gntetul for that
sermon,' clasping me warmly by the
hand and shaking it heartily. My
heart glowed for a moment, while I
wondered what tender place'inner
heart and life I had touched. Only
for a moment, though ���Yes,' she

the rubbernecks offered svtnpathv
by saying, "you're out of luck, partner."
"Oh, that don't bother me in tbe
least," the plunger replied.
"So! How's that?" asked the
rubber-neck. ���
���'Well, 'along as I have anvtbln'

"Probably. *'

Now I'm running a wood yard where

"Don't you think," said the soulful one, "thst special preparation is
needed before listening to music, in
order to fit one's self for a proper
appreciation of the divine art, ana to
put one's self in a receptive mood ?"
"I think it is quite likely," replied
the other one, "although the matter
never occured to me in that light before."
"But you see its importance now,
do you not?"
"Most assuredly."
"Well now, from your swakened
ideas on the subject, tell me, for example, what is your idea of the best
way of listening to a violin recital ?"
"Oh, I can tell you that without
half trying."
���Phase d����, then."
"The very best way of listening
to a violin recital Is by proxy."

bursting of a magazine," said the
wayworn tourist who was eating a
cold luncheon in the kitchen.
"In the war ?"
"No, ma'am," be answered. "In

"wouldn'hab no trouble 'tall 'bout

Mrs. Potts���It was rather late
when you came home last night.
Where were you ?

Mrs. Potts���Yes, of course, I know;

A man applied at a factory for a

At the Lotns club dinner to Rear

"I told the lady," said the admiral,
"that it would depend largely on
whether one was looking for companions or for climate."
"Dorothy, I saw a beautiful gown
in a shop-window today,"
"What was it, Julius?"
"Well-it was that zigzaggy kind
of cloth-and it had those braided
things across the front and down the
back; and some awful stylish pointed things on the skirt -I wish you
would get one just like It."
"Why, what a prettv ring you
have dear. What did it cost you ?"
My liberty. It's my engagement ring.

City Clerk. THE PAYSTSEAK, SANDON, B. C, JANUARY 14. 1899.
BonndleM Waalth Stored
!��� tU Mighty
P. A. O'Ferrell, in a recent isfue of the
Toronto Globs, contribui  ��� an excellent  , F��� ._��� w.���,
resume of the prospects mad wealth oif{^\P|��fW**.   Consequently
the various camps of southern British
Columbia, -fielding to the Slocan tlie
plaos for greatest riches:
Kaslo Ktmi to me to be tire least
affected by tbe wave of prosperity
sweeping over tbe Kootenays. Things
look slow in the city by the lake, and
there are numerous Idle stores and
vacant houses aod lots.   One
another railroad from Kuskonook io
Bonner's Ferry. Both reiirosds m%d
the steamers plying upon the lakes will
be owned by the Kootenay Railway A
Navigation Compsny. This is a London
company, but tbst met will not pteveat
the Canadian Pacific from equeering
them just ai it suits the great corporation's pleasure. Consequently^ I do eft
look for a very efficient service from
either tlie boats or the rsilrosds owned
by this company, snd Ksslo to keep its
hold, must sscurs s branch of the Canadian Pactfie railroad.
Kootenay lakejtself is supremely
Sand. It ui more extensive than the
oesn lake, or even boti\ Arnrow lakes,
and it has similar charscteristics, Its
shores   are   :-contains crowned with
   eternal snows, bearing tn tbeir bosoms
tbe elation, pride nnd b^*ri_c> viiible fJS^il g^_.^i\i*li��^iA

snd woman tbst vou meet in Roes- beautiful orima?val forests. It is a
!___ WY__" __?* .*t!L T_t_ '" rTFlglorious sight to behold these forests
snd mountains now clothed ins white
 And yet   Kaslo is a thrfvi
hamlet of 1,500 people. Here are
hotels, fine stores, neat cottages,
churches and apparently comfortebL
and happy homes, snd s city with telephone, electric lighting snd fire departments. It is sn up-to-date piece, but
it lacks the push, ihe enemy, the vim
snd the esprit de corps of Rossland,
Sandon, Greenwood snd other young
cities further west. Perhaps this is
due to the fact that it is the most venerable of sil. It is six years old, snd
sil the ethers are infants in dompsri*
���to. Seven years ego the discoverers
of tbe silver lead mines of the Slocan
landed here after a moonlight trip
over Kootenay lake. It wae a wilderness then, and Slocan waa unknown
to fame. Surelv its growth and the
growth of the Klosap country in thst
seven years is a strange and marvellous story of rapid growth and Suddenly acquired wesltb. But only s
psrt of the marvellous wealth of the
Slocan reaches the outside world
through tbe gateway of Ksslo. Sloesn
hss io Sil, three outlets; by Nskusp up
Arrow lakes to the main line of the
Canadian Pacific, another to Nelsoa
from Slocan City by direct railroad,
and through Kaslo to_Nebon or Bonner'* Ferry, and bv Koskonook, the
terminus of the Crow's Nest Pass Railway on Kootenay take. This new line of
railroad msy sdd io Kaslo's pommereisl
im|K>rtsaee, but iu influence fir hot felt
as yet.
1 hsve referred so often to tbe wealth
of Uie Slocan thst I must seem the*
some to go on repenting it, and yet I
hsve never yet been sble lo convey
even sn idea ef the boundless wealth
stored in these -_
Kootenay and Slocan
canopy of enow and ice. They seem to
me to be even more weirdly beautiful
then when vivified ay the radiant beams
of midsummer suns. Despite Ksslo's
beautiful situation, snd despite the (set
that behind sre mines of fabulous wesltb,
Ksslo will not attract much attention in
tbe coming year.
More than a year ago I made a prolonged sojourn in the Kettle river
country, and I then became profoundly
impressed with its magnitude and possibilities. I examined Uie Republic snd
then declared it among Uie greatest
���old minee in the world. I msde similar prsdictionr about Ironsides, Knob
Hill. Lone Star snd Washington, Stetn-
winder, Brooklyn snd others. Well, the
Republic hss already filled the mining
worid with astonishment, and Knob
Hill and Ironsides will smase the world
to-morrow. I say tomorrow, for even
ite principal stockholders do not yet
realise the value of these properties*
In a recent letter I stated that though
the owners claimed the ere will ever* 1 month, perhaps, not in a year, but it
see |20 s too, I cannot believe H possible of mining higher thsn $10. Thf
ore hudy, was so vast, so immense, that
I did not believe that nsturs could hsve
ever pieced such stupendous treasure
all in one piece. Fancy s dyke of solid
mineral 900 feet wide, which will run
five per cent, copper, snd three-fourths
of an ounce in cold. An experienced
mitring man would laugh st snch s *ugT
gestion. He will tell yon thst such a
mine is contrary to Uie laws of nsturs
and all that kind of thin*. Nevertheless, the Knoh Hill end Ironsides vein
is 300 feet wide. 1,000 feet in length and
moontains   between lelrsady explored to 150 feet
rcan   lakes.    It sur'H will produce $20 in gold
psssee the wildest  imaginings of the
*��� *��+. -a _  g__   i> - �� <    -w - * -    ���- -   *     -
for every ton ot
oreemer. It le tree thai that wealth is [and Ironsides
only in lead and silver.' It hss not Un-
-ilitter and glamor of gold, bnt it is
lust as Substantial and just ae abiding, sod J should like to have a hied
ol sledge bynfter tttertry force to

these mines capable of doing? Three
years ego Marcus Daly, the principal
owner snd manager of the Anaconda,
told me that he bad spent hundreds
of thousands hunting for another oop-
�� ermine like the Anaconda, and tbe
unt was in vein. He told me then
from his experience of mining no such
mine Would ever be found again as the
Anaconda, and yet Knob Hill and
Ironsides and their extensions, will
east it completely in the shade. They
will qnarry and not mine these Greenwood properties, when they are ready,
as they quarry out the most famous
copper mine on earth, the Rio Tinto,
for It contains the copper values. But,
Knob Hill and Ironsides are not only
the greatest copper minee, but they are
also the greatest gold mines on earth.

SANDON. B.C.. JANUARY 14, 1899
Contrary to the expectations and
assertions of the Opposition, the Semlin Government has safely passed
through the trying ordeal of meeting
tbe House for tbe first time.   Not
only have they done so with credit to
themselves, but have slso elected a
Speaker, leaving them still with a
majority strong enough to carry oo
the legitimate business of tbe Province.   Hon. Mr. Higgins did  not
get the Speakership, the choice falling on Mr.   Forster,   member  tor
Delta.   In his hands tbe decorum of
the House will be maintained, and
bis knowledge ot general routine and
parliamentary practice will remove
tbe danger of confusion and disorder.
Mr. Henderson,  member for New
Westminster, has thrown in hia support with the Government, thus enabling them to keep the Opposition
within bounds.   At tbe aame time, it
bears out the c mentions of the new
administration that they would have
a safe majority when the House met
All hopes tor an early overthrow of
Mr. Semlin are now blasted, as he is
safe tor some years to come.
In the Speech from the Throne,
every promise made by the Government haa been provided for and
legislation is foreshadowed aod outlined that will prove of inestimable
benefit to tbe people. Passing over
the grounds tor congratulation in the
continued expansion of tbe precious
metals and coal industries, as well as
that of lumber and agriculture, tbe
statement is made that the tax on
miners working in quartz mines
will be removed, placing them on the
same footing as the coal-work ere.
This is a step Hon. Mr. Cotton has
advocated for yearn, and It must be
a source of sathrfaction to him to
realize tbe achievement of hia labors.
Justice baa at last been done the
Kootenay miner, and a check has
been given tbe grasping power of the
white fellows. Mining is at all times
dangerous, and tbe lives of our toilers
cannot be too safely guarded. The
adoption of the Torrens system of
land registration will also act beneficially, to the Province. Success has
attended its working in the Antipodes and muoh Is hoped for the
ay-stem in British Columbia
More liberal land laws and tbe safeguarding of public domains from
speculative agencies will meet with
universal approval. The intention
also to give the prospector roll right
to prospect and bold claims within
the limits of railway grants is furnishing a remedy to a long-existing
evil. Tbe resources of Vancouver
Island have lain undeveloped, chiefly
through the need of such legislation.
This, too, will be a heavy blow to the
Dunsmuirs; in fact, the days of their
monopoly are about ended in this
Economies ot ao extensive nature
are promised in provincial finances,as
the need is emphasized of meeting
the heavy deficits of the past two
years. Public works will be looked
after, but in such a manner as to give
I justice to the sections supplying the
ou! k of the revenues. Improvements
in the elections act and several other
statutes are to be brought in, affording tbe legislators full scope for their
abilities and a chance to earn their
money rather than to kill time. Al
together the province has reason to
be thankful for tbe outlook before It,
and the Government cannot do otherwise than work ont tho interests of tbe
people in tbe beat manner possible,
far removed from scandal and effectual in tbeir aims and objects.

Trade journals report the astonishing fact that since Christmas there

reported ot concerns that made a
specialty of goods intended for' holiday presents. Some of these concerns
carried large stocks, and were entitled to the designation "big." In
one or two instances tbe stocks were
valued at more than $250,000. The
noticeable thing about each of the
collapsed concerns is that it did not
advertise in the newspapers. The
stores that did advertise were crowded with customers' from the commencement of the holiday season to
the hour of closing the night before
Christmas. They all report the
greatest holiday business in years.
There kr a lesson in this to Kootenay
merchants. It always pays to advertise, no matter how small one's
business may be. Tbe locality may
be sparsely settled and depression
may obtain, but it gives confidence
and commands respect when an advertisement is carried prominently
before the public. Modern business

The directors' report of the Ruth
Mines for the year ending June 80 last,
presented to tbe first annual meeting
held in London on the 80th ult., states
that in the circular to the shareholders,
dated the 1Mb of February last, reference was made to tbe ore having been
cut off in two of the levels by a "slip"
in the formation. Subsequent working
proved that the ''slip" extended nearly
to the surface, end thus cut off tbe ore
in all three of the upper levels. It is
probable that it also extends downwards, and that it will be again encountered In No. 4. when that tunnel
haa been driven sufficiently far. In the
same circular it was announced that

that tbe ground looks - very favorable,
and the directors hope that the vein
will be recovered before very long.

to a standstill for two months through
the irruption of a large volume nf water
in tunnel No. 2 This water, with a
flow of some 75 or 80 cubic feet per
minute, poured down through all the
workings, and sil energy wss concentrated upon the work of getting the
water out of the mine. Aa there appeared to be a prospect of securing a
supply of water which would furnish
power as well as the quantity required

Last Thursday the Provincial Legislature opened at Victoria, with all the
usual ceremonies. There were four
absentees, ex-Premier Turner being
among the number. Thomas Fonder
was elected speaker, on motion of
Messrs. Kellie snd Baker. A. Henderson, member for New Westminster,who
was elected as an independent, flopped
over to theUovernuient support, giving
them a clear lead over all factions.
Following is the speech irom the throne:
Mr. Speaker and Gentteraeu of the
Legislative Assembly: In meeting you
at the opening of tbe first session of the
eighth parliament of British Columbia
is is gratifying to me to be able to con-
Ktulste you on the prosperity which
been enjoyed auring the past year,
and on the prospect* for the one ou
which we are now entering.
in nearly all tbe loading industries of
the Province growth and Improved conditions are to he observed. The output
of the coal mines has largely exceeded
thst of previous years, snd is likely to
continue* to increase. The development
of quarts mines, eepeciaUy of those in
tbe Kootenay, has been most satisfactory, while a like activity to that which
has occurred there, it seems probable,
may soon be witnessed in the Boundary
Creek district, when, by the completion
of the railway now iu process of construction, the immense bodies of ore
known to exist there csn be property
Ou the west coast of the mainland and
on tbe island there is also every probability of considerable mining development shortly taking place 1 here isal��o
likely to be a largo iuirease within the
present year in placer aud hydraulic
mining. Already someIsrge enterprises
of this character have been put in successful operation in Cariboo and upon a
smaller scale Iu tbe Omlneca districts
while the recent ditto veriee st Atlin lake
have disclosed deposits of numerous
gravel rich iu quality and spread over
a large area.
lu anticipation of an influx of population into this region my Government
has already taken step* for tbe proper
adrninstration of the district, lu order
to conserve tbe natural wealth in these
gold gravels for the benefit of Canadian
minora and Cauadian traders, a bill will
be bid before you prohibiting the
acquisition of placer ciarms by aliens.
Alter some years of depression, the
outlook for the lumbering industry appears more favorable, while tbe enterprise of those engaged in it, has opened
new snd large markets for th* products
of our forests. 1 regret tbst the past
season has not been a good one for the
Stlmon canning industry on the Fraser
ii ver, owing to a combination of adverse
circumstances, but since our ocean
wealth is so great, I can but hope that
our fisheries may, in tbe ensuing season,
prove as prolific snd profitable to those
engaged in them as they have been in
previous years
It is with pleasure that I can refer to
the general improvement #vhich has
taken place in the condition ot our
agricultural community. With abort-
dant crops and an ever expanding home
market, there is little doubt that In the
future, agricultural pursuits will contribute much more largely than heretofore
to the wealth of the Province.
A great calamity visited the city of
New Westminster in the disastrous conflagration of September last. But the
energies and courage of her citizens rose
to the emergency, and, encouraged by
the sympathy and material assistance of
ale ol all parts of Canada they put
such efforts as bave already caused
the city to rise from its ashes. You will
be asked to pass legislation to put the
civic finances on such a stable basU as
will maintain the high reputation of the
royal city.
With a view to remove the existing
inequalities in the present system of
taxation, measures will be submitted to
you for remission of that part of the tax
of personal property commonly known
as the mortgage tax, and for the repeal
of the law requiring men working in
mines for wages to hold a free miner's
Realising the advantages to be derived from an absolute security in the
titles to land, and from an easy and inexpensive system of transfers of real
estate titles, my Government will lav
before you a bill to introduce into this
Province what is known as the Torrens
system of registration under such arrangements as will make Its adoption
both convenient and advantageous to
the owners of property.
In order to open up tbe public domain for settlement, while securing to
tbe Province tbe full benefit which it
would derive from such a valuable asset,
you will be asked to sanction certain
changes in the land act
For the better protection of miners in
coal mines s bill will be laid before you
prohibiting: the employment under
ground of Japanese in these mines.
A bill providing for the inspection
stationary boilers will also be introduced.
You wilt be asked to consider a
measure designed to afford to prospectors on lands within the boundaries of
the grants to railway companies tbe
same freedom to prospect for the precious metals as is sccorded to them on
crown lands
Bills will be introduced amending tbe
supreme court act, the Provincial elections act, and the act regulating the
issuance of liquor licenses, with the aim
of bringing legislation regarding these
matters into bsrmony with the present
conditions of the Province.
Mv Government has givon much consideration to the present financial position of the Province, and to tbe means
by which important public works can
be carried out without imposing undue
burdens on the tax payers, and you
will be asked to pass legislation to provide for the deficit in the revenue for tbe
hurt two years and for obligations incurred under the authority of acts already
on the statute books. Also to authorise
certain i changes in the methods of dealing with the Provincial debt and in the
management of finances, whereby it is
anticipated that both the credit of the
Province will be enhanced and important economies be effected.
The estimates of revenue and expenditure for the ensuing fiscal year will
shortly be laid be or1! you and will show
that thev have been framed with a view
to economy, whilst providing liberally
for tbe necoiwary public services.
I now leave vou v> yourdeliberations,

labors will be conducive to the interests
of the Province and to the welfare and

revenue department, has just returned
to the capital very enthusiastic after
inspecting **the smelting works at
Revelstoke, Rossland, Nortbport, Nelson, Kaslo, Sandon and Nakusp, at
which gold-bearing ores are treated."
There should be a royal commission
appointed to enquire into Mr. MacFarlane a sanity, as he has without doubt a
revolving sphere in his cranium. At
the same time the horse editor of the

times as he becomes sufficiently educated to treat B.C. topics.

The Beth Mines. Limited, - is a company with a capital of -120,000, owning
a group of 10 claims,kaown as the Ruth,
Roth Fraction, Wyoming, Hops, Despair, Aurora No. 2, Aurora Fraction,
Yarns, Yams Fraction, and Suburban
Fraction. These claims oover aa area of
about 210 scree, and are situated doee to
the railway at Sandon. The principal
work hss been carried out on the Ruth
snd Rota Fraction, but soother ledge
hss lstely been discovered on the
Aurora, snd development work upon this
claim, as well as in the principal working, is now being actively prosecuted.
During the twelve months 0,074 tone of
ore, carrying both silver and lead, were
shipped from the mine to the smelters,
snd the operations resulted in s net
profit of ��29,734. An interim dividend
ol 3s. per share wss paid in February
last, snd s final dividend for the year

to English bearers on the test, "Go to

on s grassy bank wbile waiting for the
train that was to take him home. He
nearly missed it owing to hie absorption
in s book, and had to hurry to the elation. He had scarcely taken his seat
in the carriage when he felt a tingling
sensation. The bank must have neon
alive with ants. With the help of s
sympathetic fellow passenger bo managed to clear his coat and waistcoat of
the intruders. And when at length he
was quite stone he took off soother gar-
moot which wss equally infested with

The Windermere District.
Mr. .fl' J. Soowtt of Windermere
wss in town Thursday on his way
through Kootenay. In speaking of
the Windermere district lie predicts
a very active season for the coin ng
summer. Windorrncre is a rich
copper-gold camp and is attainting
unnsual attention both at Kossland
and the Coast. Over 500 locations
were recorded during the season of
1898. Representatives of American
aud English capital bave secured
some of tire leading prosprcts and
intend commencing development
work on a large scale at an early
date. So far the most valuable loca

early days as placer .diggings, and
upwards of 12,000,000 haa been taken
from their golden sands. Considerable washing is still done, and s
miner can always make a day's
wages st the placers.
The smelter returns on ore from
this district show very high values
in copper. The Drlpltine mine, on
Toby creek, haa made* seven I large

A Freighfciafl Service to Boundary.
H. T. Wilgress, right of way agent
for ths Canadian Pacific railway in
the Boundary country, some time
ago strongly advised the company
officials to inaugurate a winter
tYelghtlng service Into tbe Boundary
country by W*y of the new railway
swob road from Brooklyn to. Cascade, The distance between these
two points is but 40 or 45 miles, and
as tbe sleighing is now first class,
and likely to remain so for three
months, the plan is feasible.
At present the Canadian Pacific
is virtually shat ont of a large part
of the trade of the Boundary until
the new RoJbeon-Penticton branch of
Uie Columbia & Western is complete,
because their nearest points are
Brooklyn on Uie east and Penticton,
190 miles from Cascade, on tbe west.
Considerable freight comes to Greenwood by the latter route, but none to
Grand Forks or Cascade. As a result, a large amount of business from
the Const and from eastern Canadian
points reaches this district via the
American lines.
The Urgent Siloer Nugget
Tbe largest silver nugget or mass
of silver ever mined' was a piece
weighing 1340 pounds, which waa
taken from the Smuggler mine, at
Aspen. Col., in 1894. The nugget in
question formed part of a consignment of 206,OBI pounds of ore, which,
with silver at 58 cents or thereabout,
netted, free and clear of all expenses,
close to $8,000. At Silver City,
Idaho, is a mine which is said to
have produced the richest carload of
ore ever sold in Denver. It brought,
according to report, over $"A000.
Another from the same mine is said
to have sold tor 160,000.
Another Stampede at Atlin.
Discovery City, in Atlin, was at
last accounts utterly deserted except
by the very Jew who couldn't get
away. Every mothers son lit ont on
another stampede up in she direction
of the head of tbe lake. Each man
took about ten days' grub only.
Since the exodus the lake has been
verv rough. As the stampeders cannot return as long as tbe wind keeps
blowing their position msy by this
time be perilous. The stampede occurred two weeks ago.
This last strike is reported as being
over in the direction of the Taku
trail coming in from Juneau. Just
where the new strike is is not yet
known in Atlin, but the trail {s up
Pike creek to Pike lake, and then
over a low range of mountains.
News of the results of this stampede
will probably be known on the coast
in a lew days.
