Rossland entertained within its
gates this week a notable visitor—
Hon. N. Clarke Wallace, Comptroller of Customs. The growth of
Rossland and the mineral wealth
of the district were a revelation to
him, and the tales that he will
have to tell the Canadian Ministers
on his return to Ottawa will no
doubt awaken in them a realization
of the importance of this portion of
the Dominion.
Al Trull.
The growing importance of Trail
is attracting a great, many persons
thither. Crowds of men throng
the streets and swarm around the
wharf (or on the shore where the
wharf should be) when the steamer
arrives. Topping & Hanna's hotel
is having a great harvest. The
Peterson Hotel will soon be having
just as great a run. Hoyt & Lay
are rushing their new hotel to completion. A barber shop, a bakery
and two or three other small places
of business have sprung into existence this week.
The cause of all this stir is, of
course, the building of the smelter.
The contractors have the excavations well in hand. Wood by the
thousand cord is being cut anil
brick is being made on the town-

The first of a series of social hops
given by Prof, and Mrs. Graham
took place on Tuesday evening in
Donohue's Hall. A large number
was present, and all expressed
themselves as having had a good
time. The music, under the direction of Prof. Harper, was all that
could be desired.
Undertakers Galore.
The report current in Spokane
and elsewhere regarding sickness in
Rossland has started a numerous
Tot of undertakers this way. Every
day brings more undertakers to
town. Accost a Btranger and ten
to one you learn that he is an undertaker] that is unless he wears
yellow-legged hoots, in that case
he is an expert. Undertakers and
experts.   Experts and undertakers.
In Klghtceen Days.
It is learned that when Heinze
and Breen went to purchase machinery for the smelter the machinery companies first visited could
not fill the order in less than 60
days. This did not suit at all, as
they are in a hurry to prepare to
receive ore. Finally a house was
found that agreed to supply the
machinery on the ground in 18
days. That house secured the order at a considerably larger figure
than the others had asked.
Two Sales Yesterday.
Two sales of small mining properties were made yesterday. As
the amounts realized were small
the transactions were not of themselves of much consequence but importance attaches to them because
they aie first sales since the fevered
excitement of a few weeks ago.
They indicate that buyers and
sellers who have been wide apart
are again getting together and that
other and larger deals will soon be
consummated.
Turn   the   Goat   Loose.
Close blinds have been placed on
the windows of Donohue's hall,
and it is evident that members of
secret orders have their goat in
training for prospective work. He
is said to be a good butter and candidates for the high honors thai
are veiled by the mysteries of the
lodge room, would do well to borrow a school atlas and place it
where they used to wear it when
they were truant boys.
The   Slocan   Prosperous.
Alvin McLean came down from
Kaslo Monday, and reports business improving there and in all
the Slocan towns. Track is laid
on the Kaslo & Slocan railway as
far as Bear Lake; trains are run
and fares collected. There is some
trouble in two of the mines which
may lead to expensive litigation,
hut efforts are being made to arrange matters satisfactorily to till
concerned. The Humphrey-Moore
concentrator at Three Forks is
worked to its full capacity. The
Star Company is building a concentrator and the owners of the
Washington will build one.
Maybe Another Townsite.
The location line of the C.P.R. is
following the trial line closely.
Beginning at Rossland it descends
Trail Creek two or three miles and
then diverges to the north, crossing
Stony creek 1^ .miles from its
mouth. It also crosses Murphy
and Sullivan creeks some distance
from where they empty into the Columbia. After ciossing Sullivan
creek it enters Upon the large, level
bench of ground that lies between
Sullivan and China creeks. There
it reaches the Columbia river. If
the river is to be used from there a
town may spring up, but it is likely that the railroad will follow up
the river to a connection with the
C. & K. at Robson.
ISUILDINt;   NOTES,
The cornice on the opera house
is saitl to be the finest in the city.
Two new dwellings near Bell &
Naden's mill are recently finished.
Some handsome residences are
being built in the western portion
of the town.
The Miners' Exchange, adjoining
Shaw's Hotel, is still under the
hammers of the carpenters.
The vacant spaces on Columbia
Ave. and Spokane Street are being
filled in with new buildings,
The Balfour Trading Co.'s new
building at the junction of Wash-
ingion and Reserve Streets in enclosed.
Plastering is dry in the rooms on
the third and fourth floors of Shaw's
Hotel, and those two floors are
occupied, while the first and second
remain in charge of the builders.
Widens With Depth.
Le Roi mine has now attained a
depth of 375 feet and the ledge continues to widen until it is now 32
feet from wall to wall; and now, if
never before, the permanency of
the Trail Creek camp is established.
Church Social.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church will give a social next Tuesday evening, 24th inst. Refreshments will be served and an admission fee of 25 cents charged.
The social will be held in the new
building adjoining the Dominion
Express Co.'s oflice.
Capitalists   Coming;.
Information comes from Spokane
and Butte that several small parties of mining men will visit this
district during the next six weeks,
their object being to get a good look
at several undeveloped prospects
before snow falls and hides them
from view.
The Trail Road.
The work which is being done,
under the direction of the Government, on the Trail Creek road is of
a substantial nature. Broken rock
laid on in thicknesses varying from
three to eight inches forms a
macadamized roadway which delights the heart of the freighter.
In the Sweet Dy anil IJy.
Rossland's water works system is
completed and in active operation,
supplying the citizens with an
abundance of pure, sparkling,
fresh water for drinking and household purposes and large, high
pressure streams for putting out
fires—on paper in Spokane, and
Spokane papers contain daily reports of its excellence.
Le Roi Men on Velvet.
Five years of hard work and
patient waiting have been at length
rewarded. The owners of Le Roi
mine have declared their first dividend. The bread they cast upon
the waters has after many, very
many, days returned to them—
$25,000 of the proceeds of recent
sales has been distributed among
the holders of the half million of
stock at the rate of 5 cents per
share, $20,000 going to residents of
Spokane and $5,000 to Danville,
Illinois.
The output from the mine has
for some time past averaged 100
tons a day, and is not likely to fall
below that average for several
months to come. Its pay roll is
one of the chief supports of Rossland.

Tony Becker, one of the best-

Steamer Nakusp has ceased to

kept busy all winter.
We are not surprised when a
Dakota or Chicago paper refers to
the Alamo mine as the St. Elmo.
But for Spokane and Rossland
papers to do so, as they did last
week, indicates (.hat some one is
napping.
He Cot the Cash.
Tommy Blakeney sold yesterday
a -J interest in the Highland to a
Mr. Thompson, of San Francisco,
for five hundred dollars. Blake-,
ney holds both extensions to the
Highland and could therefore afford
to sell it cheaply to some one who
would develop it. The Highland lies
near the Murphy Creek trail, about
five miles north of this town. Development consists of open crosscuts showing ledge over 16 feet
wide, well mineralized and carrying from 4 to 10 per cent, copper.
Kept It Dark.
About August 1st the Slocan
Star paid $50,000 in dividends,
being 10 per cent, on the capital
stock of $500,000. It was more
than a month after the dividend
was declared before the fact leaked
out and the public was made aware
of it. The Slocan Star has over
$3,000,000 worth of ore in sight.
Put   In    Dynamos.
The value of electricity in working low grade ore is too well
known to require much to be said
in its favor, as mines situated some
distance from water power and at
such an altitude as to make it very
expensive to deliver fuel, have
found the electric motor the only
means bv which they could oper-
rate. When water power is not
available a steam plant located al
a point where fuel can be had at a
reasonable figure' and being some
distance from the mill or mine
insures perfect safety from fire
while the same benefits of power
can be obtained together with
lights which greatl}' overcomes the
danger from the explosion of gases
found in many places. Much
could be said of the many uses to
which it is being applied, as it is
the coming motive power, and in
the near future will be almost ah
indispensable factor in mining.
B. M. StaitH. THE  P&QSPECTQH
I'.Y   W.   I).   PRATT.
A  BURNING   QUESTION,
Kootenay's   Trade   Willi    Spokane,   and
the Reason of It.
A Canadian correspondent calls
our attention to a matter which has
often been jJistUsflf^ in these columns, and which, in fact, has been
a burning question in Kootenay for
souiq yeiff^ past—the volume of
trade between West Kootenay and
Spokane, to the exclusion of our
pwn cities on the coast and Canadian supply centers in the east.
Our correspondent sa\Ts:
" It is a well-known fact that the
greater portion of the trade of the
Kootenay district goes across the
frontier, and Spokane reaps the
benefit of the large and growing
orders for all kinds of goods which
in the natural order of things ought
to go to Vancouver and Victoria."
Yes, it is a well-known and very-
much-talked-about fact, but how to
turn  the  flow of trade away from
Spokane  and  towards the British
Columbian cities is a problem not
yet solved.    The reasons why Spokane supplies our needs instead of
Vancouver and Victoria are many,
and. it will not be amiss to enumerate some  of them.    In   the first
place geographical contiguity must
be counted as an important factor
in promoting trade.  It is very easy
to reach Spokane from any part of
Southern Kootenay, and   the fare
is   about  one-fifth of what it is to
Victoria,  so  that   Kootenay  merchants  can   run down to Spokane
and make a personal examination
of goods  at no great outlay.    We
obtain all our news of the outside
\vorld  through   Spokane,   and  no
doubt imbibe a good deal of Spokane sentiment  in   the operation:
the papers published in Spokane in
the morning are in the hands of the
Rossland newsboys the same afternoon, while the Victoria and Vancouver papers are from three to five
days old by the time they get here.
All these things count.    Then we
hmst take into consideration the
nationality of the majority of the
population in Southern Kootenay,
tt population whose  knowledge  of
tiny other portion of the Dominion
is  very  slight and whose sympathies and business connections are
entirely south of the boundary line
They do not know anything about
Vancouver or Victoria, Montreal or
Toronto, but  they do kiT>w about
about Spokane, and San Francisco
and Chicago.    It may be touching
a sore spot to explain the peculiar
conditions which prevail in Southern Kootenay to-day, but it is'only
lair  to state that if those peculiar
'conditions did not exist the population in Southern Kootenay might-
be  counted  by tens instead of by
thousands.   We are indebted to the
enterprise and capital which flowed
in from the other side of the boundary for having any trada in West
Kootenay worth striving after. The
money  risked   in   developing  our
mines  is  mostly  American*;   the
Vnen who are  engaged in such development, both owners and miners,
fare chiefly  Americans ;   Rossland
itself was practically built by Americans, and the  leading spirits in
matters   of   public   improvement,
feuch as incorporation, water works,
tire protection, etc., are Americans;
the contract for supplying Rossland
with a water system   and also for
building the Trail smelter are being
let at Spokane.    Spokane takes a
great interest in West Kootenay;
Victoria and Vancouver have been
supinely indifferent.
These facts are patent to anyone
who has visited the new townB in
Southern Kootenay.    In Rossland
the American  element  may  be a  know what kind of people live down j
ittle more apparent, but in Kaslo, j here.
This shows a determination to keep i
the trade, and Rossland at least
may look forward with pleasure to
the threatened competition between
the American and Canadian wholesale bouses for its trade.
in New Denver, in Three Forks and
in a lesser degree in Nelson, the
same conditions prevail. It is now
i matter of history how some Americans straying across the border
found rich float on Toad Mountain;
J|ow later on the news brought
-titers, who found more and richer
lineral further north; how a camp
|ias started at Nelson, which soon
grew to a wealthy town on the
money brought in by American
prospectors   and mining men who
fitted out there and pushed their ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Westerner, overcame the difficulties
of Canadian mountains and forests
where a Canadian had never yet
set foot. They opened up the Slocan, and towns sprang up as if
called into existence by the magician's wand. They penetrated further north into the rich mining districts of Lardeau, Duncan, Fish
Creek and even to far Big Bend. It
was to American companies and
syndicates that the men sold or
bonded their claims before the vast
magnitude of the mineral bodies
had been proved; British and Canadian capitalists would only look at
a developed mine— they would have
nothing to do with a hole in the
ground.
Thus the whole of South Kootenay has become Americanized. Our
Canadian merchants paid little attention to  this rich field for bus!
the district in particular. The
large amount of labor entailed in
smelting West Kootenay's ore is
lost to this country, as we have but
one smelter in operation, and the
vast bulk of the ore goes to be
smelted in the United States. The
opinion has been expressed that
some sort of legislative action
should be taken on the matter.
Various remedies have been suggested by prominent men in the
Province, and Mr. J. M. Kellie, the
member for this district in the Provincial Legislature, advocates an
export duty on B.C. ore, which, he
contends, would enforce the building of smelters this side the boundary line. Such a course might
also result in some American mine-

their ore to American smelters and

\Of SEOJtANE   MINING   CONVENTION.
H.ll>cvitl Railway Bates.
The promoters of the oommg
mining convention, which is to
meet in this city October 2 and 3,
have received assurances which
leave little doubt that the railways
will grant a round trip rate of one
and one-fifth fare to Spokane from
all points in Washington, Oregon,
Montana and Northern Idaho.
" That settles it," said Secretary
L. K. Armstrong to a Chronicle reporter. " We can now look to see
1,000 mining men present, representing every district in the northwest. Letters are coming faster
anil faster—coming from all directions, all enthusiastic and every
Ipundle giving assurance that a lot
more delegates will come to the
greatest meeting of mining men the
northwest has ever seen. "
The program has only been briefly
putlined. The first meeting will
pecur on Tuesday, October 2. at 2
p. m., for organization, appointment of committees, election of officers, signing the constitution, etc.
The second meeting on Wednesday,
Will receive not only the reports
from committees, but reports from
the various districts, such papers
as will be provided, and general
discussion. The delegates from
every district are urged to bring all
the information regarding it they
fan obtain, to be not only presented to the convention, but permanently preserved in the records of
the society.
More than this, they are urged
to bring a liberal supply of specimens of ores It is proposed to establish not only a permanent collection of ores for the Northwest
Miners' Association in this city,
hut similar collections in Butte.

month, but commencing November
1st, it is expected to increase to
$75,000. This estimate is conservative and is based on the proportion of 125 men to the War Eagle.
100 to Le Roi, Twenty-five to the
Josie, Crown Point, Iron Horse
Niekle Plate, Center Star, Columbia and Kootenay and from ten to
three to the other claims that will
be worked through the winter.
The Cliff, if it works this winter,
will employ at least twenty men.
This property has a tunnel in $30
ore, and is fast developing into one
of the best mines in the district.
It has one of the largest ore bodies
in the camp. John R. Cook and
B. M. Wharton are the owners.
They recently refused $155,000 for
the property, Mr. Conk owns one;
third of the town of Rossland and
is the principal owner of the St.
Elmo Consolidated, Coxey, anil
other properties.
II. L. Rogers, of Spokane, manager of the High Ore Gold Mining
Company, is in the camp. He is
having winter quarters built for
his men and will operate the High
Ore all winter. This property adjoins the Jumbo, owned in Spokane,
which has developed from a prospect to a rich mine.
It is understood a 50 foot shaft
is to be sunk on the Ivanhoe.
this property has an   enormous
ledge of pyritic iron and quartz,
and old miners claim that depth
will make it a valuable mine.
Three expensive plants have
been ordered and are now coming
forward from the east. The first
to arrive will be a large air compressor, boiler and engine, for the
War Eagle mine. The Center
Star and R. E. Lee have ordered
similar plants, which are expected
to arrive within the next ten days.
The EVening Star is developing
into a mine, and Messrs. S. S.
Bealey, F. P. Hogan D. Dnimhel-
ler and others have undoubtedly
struck a bonanza..

General Outlook for Cariboo.
The mining season of 1805 will
still last about two mouths. It b
calculated that hydraulic mining
along the Quesnejle and Horsefly
rivers can be continued under favorable conditions until about November 1st. This means about twt
months yet for work in the two
mines now running on full time,
and a good deal of preparatory work
on other propositions for next season. We expect good results to bt
shown by the Cariboo and Horsefly
mines yet this season. The Horsefly, it is reported, will make tWi
wash-ups yet this season, and very
likely the Cariboo will do the same.
Of the value of the Cariboo mint
no one who has ever seen it questions. The output will be satisfactory. The Horsefly has had seriou.-
trouble with its cement ground and
may not do as well as was at oni
time hoped; but if, as reported, the
cement is giving out and the gravel
banks are equally rich, there is in
limiting the output of this property. Much depends on the outpul
of these two mines yet this season,
If as good as seems probable, capital will pour into the upper country
and many now unheard-of properties will be opened up. In any case
i here is enough development work
done to asuure the opening up ol
several large producing properties-
next season. Slough creek, Williams creek, Willow river am:
Lightning creek may be counter
on next year as scenes of activity.
and many men will at these pointt-
alone secure employment. Tin
millions taken out of these streams
and their tributaries in years gout
by are proof positive of their value.
About Quesnelle Forks many propositions of value are lieing pusher'
with a view of getting them in
shape for producing. Several oi
them will be far enough advanced
this season so that the early sprinp
will see them hydraulicking. Al
the Horsefly the Ward claim will
have only the pipe to lay. Its
water system, it is expected, will hi
completed this fall, and next season
should show good results from this
valuable ground. All in all, tin
season of 1895 has been a favorable
one so far for Cariboo. That '9c'
will see far greater activity no out
conversant with the country doubts.

Which is Klght?
The wholesale merchants of Vancouver and Victoria tire not liked
in Kootcnny, for the reason that
their travelling agents when unable
to sell gootls to dealers invariably
begin peddling to consumers. The
merchants of Kootenay like to deal
with merchants, not peddlers.—
Nelson Tribune.
This is not the case in the Cariboo country, and no complaints
from our business men are heard
against Vancouver and Victoria
wholesalers. As a rule they are
gentlemen and business men. Perhaps the Nelson water has something to do with the travelling
men.—Ashcroft Mining Journal.

CAMPBELL BROS., Rossland, B.C. rarudox.
Under   the   nhove  heading  the
Victoria Colonist says:
"There is a revival in the United
States of the alarming talk about
the  export  of gold,    The Government gold reserve has once or twice
lately got perilously near the lowest
point considered safe—$100,000,000
—and was only saved from going
still lower by a syndicate of bankers
who have patriotically volunteered
to save the Government from embarrassment and the business of
the  country  from   uneasiness   by
paying  gold  into the Treasury in
exchange  for  paper currency.    It
does seem strange that a rich nation
like  the United   States  should be
under an obligation to a syndicate
of capitalists to provide it with gold
to redeem its paper.    There is no
no doubt about the wealth of the
United   States,     It is a very rich
country, rich in realized wealth and
rich in resources, hut still it is in
these days continually in want of
money, which is considered good by
everyone with whom it has dealings.
If a private firm known to be unquestionably solvent  were in this
position it would be condemned by
financiers for its bad management.
A  concern in   such circumstances
has no business to be short of cash.
Why does the United States Government, with its great wealth and
its almost unbounded credit, allow
itself to be and to  remain in this
critical, this humiliating position?'1
