THE  k, K. TO BE
P., of RuKshind is larRfcly interested in
Wiliioii creek properly but the expense
ot packing up supplies to Ins prospects
has retarded the cpunin-** up ot the properties. The new trail will probably
be-jin on the north side of tho creek und
u bridge built about a mile above Rose-
limy, thus avoiding the dangerous mud-
tdidc over which the present trail is
built.       .   .

line ledge ol quilts with a paystreak of
fnmi 14 to 18 Inches wide that gives
average assay returns of |_5. per ton In

that of tho Congo ledge and carries
copper sulphides, but hh the rock tested
wnsBurfaco ore il was not tried for
copper. The A. E. is situated between
Ihe Congo and Little Daisy and forms
the connecting link between them, so
that both the Congo aud Little Daisy
veins must pass through the property,
ihe ledge lately uncovered has not had
enough work done on tt to determine
Whether it lt an independent ledge or
one ibut hns previously been discovered
on one nf the adjoining properties. A

As an instance of juvenile depravity
we give the following confession of a wee
Silverton lassie. She lisped "I felt SO
sorry for tho poor Devil, and waited to
give him a little comfort, So I got a
glass of cold water and poured it down
a little hole in the kitchen floor.
"The constant drop of water
Wears away the hardest stone;
The constant gnaw of Towner
Masticates the toughest bone;
TIip constant cooing lover
Carries off the blushing maid;
And the constant advertiser
Is the one who gets the trade."
The strain from ovoratudy showing In
the faces of some of our schoolboys,
may result in something similar to the
following, which is told of the winner of
a scholarship in one of our Universities :-
"Soon after the snnouncement of the
results the man of genius was found
sijintted ou tho grass in tho middle of
the court of his college, clad onlr In a
surplice and holding au o|»en umbrella
over his head. The rain was descending
in torrents, but the Professor went out to
him nnd expostulated, All in Tain however, for in piteous tones the man of
genius rebuked him; "Leave me alonel
Let me grow !   I'm a mushroom !

A brief description of the camp und
how to reach it may be useful to many
at this time.
This famous region lies in the Buffalo
-lump mountains in Idaho county, the
highest altitude of the maintains lieing
nearly It.fHiO feet aliove sea level. The
altitude of thc camp is something over
7,000 feet above sea level.
The first discoveries were made the
10th of August, 1808, by two prospectoiH,
Rohbins and Rigloy. They located three
claims-the Dig HufTalo, Merrimac and
Oro Kino, and in sinking a 10-foot prospect hole struck a vein of solid ore 2(1
feet in width, and so rich that throe tons
yielded between i?."i00 and WOO. On the
20th day of December these two prospect
ors sold their claims for *i'C75,00O. After
the Kobbins and Rigley strike became
known a stampede commenced at once
and many locutions were mnde, in many
of which discoveries have. Wn made of
incredible richness, with veins running
from 12 to .10 feet in width. About 200
claims have lieen located, but old timers
who are acquainted with the country say
that the territory is exceedingly large,
and that there js room for at least 10,000
locations. Shortly after the first discoveries the heavy winter snow began to fall
so that comparatively little work could
be done, and prospectors were obliged to
wait until after the melting of the snow,
which will tn* along toward the last of
Auril or the tirst of May.
Parties going to the new camp reach
Lewiston over the U. R. A N. company
line in connection with the Croat Northern and other eastern lines; thence from
lewiston by the Idaho, Nevada k California Stage Co's stages 'two stages daily
out of Ijewiston), to thc following points:
From lewiston to Adam's camp via
Grangeville, thence by saddle horse 20
miles to Buffalo Hump; from Ijewiston to
Florence, thence, saddle horse 20 miles to
Hulfalo Hump; from Lewiston to Rodger via Elk City, thence by saddle horse
13 miles to BurTalo Hump.
The approximate fare by stage from
Lewi-ton to liuffalo Hump cnmp, which
includes ,*>0 pounds of baggage to each
adult passenger, is $15, but of course it
will lie understood that travel will not be
open till roads are cleared of snow which

Following is a summary of working
mines in the Palmer mountain district:
The Palmer Mountain Cold Mininp and
Tunnel Company, of Spokane, owns 43
claims with a crosscut tunnel now in 1700
feel with nine veins cut. The depth at
the present fo.*e ih HOO feet. All veins cut
showing free gold. No drifting has so far
been done.
The Golden (tone shows nearly 20011 feet
of tunnels, all in ore. with iiO.OOO tons of
ore blocked out. A concentrator is now-
being erected.
The Okanogan Free Cold Mines, Ltd.,
of Rossland, has 280 feet of tunnels, numerous open cuts and shallow holes, ami
is erecting n mill, concentrator and cyanide plant. The company proposes to
mine out 1200 nnd 3000 feet of ground on
an average of 200 feet before sinking will
become necessary.
Thc Q. S. has a surfa.-e showing of a
vein 300 feet wide lor 3000 feet in length
and the company is running o prospecting
tunnel 300 feet" to tap the vein tKS) feet
deep. As soon as the vein is crosscut the
company will start a lower tunnel for
working the mine, which will tap thc vein
2000 feet deep, with 2000 feet length.
Tho Eldorado has a 00 foot tunnel
showing ore going 20 to 25 per cent in
copper. .1. P. Dexter is working it con
tiniiously with a small force.
At Weheville thc James 0. Blaine shaft
is down 00 feet and the bottom is in ore.
A contract  for 200 feet of work   is  in

■n'ogroso.
The Lake Shoro on Mount Elmeham
has a 70 foot shaft and is now running
a crosscut tunnel to top the vein 300 feet
deep.
The Roanoke on Mount Kiioeham has
a 400 foot tunnel, the last 200 feet of
wihch ran on thc ledge. The tunnel is
running to reach tho contact with a
cross vein.
On the Mammoth, a Whisky hill property, o crosscut tunnel is running to tap
the vein 500 feet deep.

Hejinhlle.
Some fine specimens of copper-gold ore
were brought down from the Copper
ijiiccn end Number Nine claims on Buckhorn mountain. These claims lie about
half c mile north of the noted Buckhorn
mine. There Is a shaft on theCopper
Queen that is 20 feet deep and the ledge
is 10 feet in vvldth. Five assays have
l>ecn made of the oro that showed values
of from tftli to $98 per ton. The oro
is what is usually termed copper oro, but
it carries quite a percentage of gold
and silver.
The Number Nine is n mammoth
ledge, having a surface showing of 50
feet. It is a combinatiiion of magnetic
iron, copper and gold. The assays vary
from $16 to $33 per ton of all values. The
properties are owned by Don and Doc
MeClung.
It is reported that there is considerable
mining going on In that section. Sev-
erul of thc copper properties are lieing tie-
vcln-K-d and also one of the gold claims.
Among thc latter is the Review mine. It
is said that it Is looking better than
ever.
Everything at the Bridie is ready for
the reception of the hoist, but it is still
a mutter of doubt when it will arrive.
Frank .faekson, superintendent of the
Kxeelsior group, states that the shaft on
the property is 30 feet deep and tho ledge
thi-ee and a half feet wide. Thc ledge is
gradually improving in width and values.
The claim lies about tluce fourths of a
mile sotit h of the Golden Harvest.
One shift only is working on the Black-
tail.   The work is being done in tlie raise.
It is claimed that there is yet 40 feet
of raise to moke in the San Poil before
the two tunnels will be connected. Tho
ore remains of as high grade as heretofore. It is said to run from $20 to $80
per ton. It is just possible that the connection will be made by the first of
April.   .
The Quilp is more promising with every
foot of development, and there is a large
body of sloping ore in sight, but tlie
great value of the property will not bc
accurately known until after a shaft has
been sunk to a depth of several hundred
feet.
The Eureka hns been surveyed for a
patent.
The Kate Hayward tunnel is making
good progi-ess, and it is expected that it
will strike the ledge within tho next 20
feet.
In the Lone Pine there has been about
130 feet of drift run on thc ledge. The
tunnel was driven about 100 feet to tap
the ledge at a depth of about 50 feet.
From the face of this the drift was started east and along the ledge. Where it
was cut by the tunnel it was about nine
feet wide, 'but at. its present face it is
about 16 feet wide. The ledge widened
gradually as th« drift was extended east
and the values also increased as rapidly
as did the width.

An uneasy fowling is manifesting
itself in mining circles over tlio probable consequences to follow tho passing of the Eight Hour L»w by the
local Legislature. This measure was
apparently pushed through the process
of law making without any thought
of its consequences on the Slocan mines
ond only now are the fatal defects in
the measure, as applied to.this district, being appreciated. It further
appoars that thc intention of the promoter of the nieusure, Martin of Rossland, wus not to attach auy penalty
for its infraction, but by incorporating
it with the present "Inspection of
Metalliferous Mines Act" a penalty of
810 a day for every infraction is attached. Tbe initiative for any prosecution must rest with the Provincial
Mine Inspector or bo by written instruction from the Minister of Mines.
There is no necessity for tho enforcement of this measure in this section, where both men and management are satisfied with the present
state of affairs, although it is rumored
that the miners, instigated by this law
purpose demanding un eight hour day
with the present pay of $3 50. If this
should amount to anything, it must
result in trouble.
Hasty   end   thoughtless  k-i-islation'
was u feature of thu   late   hurry-up-
and-gc.t-through session.

For the second time during the last
three months, wo have been able to
write the fij-urea "1000" under the oro
shipment-i from this point. These
fig>-re8 include the small shipments of
tho prospects as well as thc several
hundred ton shipments of our larger
producers, and go out as a standing
advertisement of the camp.
Few mining sections can show such
a uniformly high grade of oro as that
produced by the Slocan and it is no
idle boast when we s*y that these two
thousand tons are equal in value to a
shipment of at least one carload a day
for a year from some of the less favored localities
Gratifying as the shipments up to
date have been, they are at best only a
hint of what the production of our
mines will bo in the near future. With
the increase in the number of shippers
and the incrc.sed facilities for quick
transportation from mine to wharf, the
shipments will multiply rapidly, the
production this year being limited by
tho slow and laborious process of raw
hilling snd packing and numerous
delays by unsuitable weather.
