Angus McLesn all  of  Hilyertou.   The
two claims   are being developed and
worked aa one property.   There are two
veins on tbe property which run parallel
to each other and a short distance opart,
Both of these veins have been traced by
a series of open cuts snd shallow shafts
(or a dial   ie of over  1000 (eet.   The
strike of tbe  veins are  northerly and
southerly with a pitch east, into the hill,
of about 45 degrees.   Tlie  formation  ol
the country rock is a series o( s'.ato  and
granite dykes, with  in  places a  little
lime.   The two veins  aie  named  alter
the two claims although  crossing both
properties, tbe one known as tbe Admiral
aversging about three feet in  width and
the Royal vein being over six feet in
width.     Most oi the    work   so   far
done haa been on  the Royal vein, on
which, near the hanging wall, a six inch
streak of high grade gold and silver ore
hss been  encountered.   The character
of the ore like most all ot that found in
the Slocan City country is a dry ore.

Near  Twelve  Mile  Landing   R, W.
Thompson and Malcolm Nicholson have
a promising property in the  Silver Tip
Group.   This   Group   is comprised ol
Utree full claims, and lies directly on the
Lake shore, Twelve Mile creek crossing
tha property.   A ledge averaging over
t welve feat in width, carrying mineral
where over dug upon, has been traced
em tha property (or a distance of over
2000 feat.   The ore is what is known ss
dry and carries high   values in  silver.
Buildings will ha erected at once and
development work carried on all   winter
by tha owners, who hope to have a shipping proportion to oQor for sale by next
spring.   The situation  of  the  property
is such that it can be  worked  the year
round   and ore can be handled directly
from the mine onto the C P R ore barges.
The croee-cnt tunnel being driven to
tap the big A   E. ledge, on Red  Mountain, is naaring the vain, aa already big
blotc baa and streaks of copper sulphide*
are  being encountered,   although  the
cross-cut ia still   In  the country  rock.
Tha work la being done nnder the direction oi F. L. Byron,  who is one o(
thb principal  owners  in  the  property.
The tapping of the A E ledge at depth
will be of great benefit not only  to the
A E property, but also to the Congo and
other adjoining claims,  whose ores are
identical witli tbat of the A E.  This
big vain, which ia over 100 feet wide,
fitoa every Indication  ol being one o(
tha biggest gold-copper deposith   in   the
province and ths tunnel now being run
will be a large factor  in demonstrating

The letter appearing in ths   Weekly
News Advertiser of the 27th. inst. signed
by Chaa, E. Hope of Vancouver, is inst
about what could be expected  from the
pen of a man whose knowledge of mines
and miners is so  limited  that  he bad
never beard of the  Western  Federation
of   Miners   before   the present 'ahot
trouble in the Slocan.   Mr. Hop.-   may
be conscientious  in  his views on   the
eight-hour Isw and  the attempted  reduction of miner-' wages  in the 81-van.
but his experience in mining and knowledge ol the subiec-ta discussed  by   htm
is so limited, tliat hia statements should
lie received for what they are worth and
uot lakec as  (acta.   When  tbe  eighi-
honr law Was first na-secl. Mr. Hope was
an ardent supporter of the   measure and
wanted it eiaiurced at once, stating  tb u
it would enable him to cut miner* wanna,,
and that ore would bo produced (or  less
money and thus make  the mine  more
valuable.   When told   that   the miners
would strike sooner than work  (or   less
wsges per day *nd   thut  they   would be
backed by the W. F. of M.,   he   laughed
al Ihe idea of the miners being   able   to
withstand  thn  d.uiand*   o(   the   mine
owners, thst tbey woul I soon Im starved
Into submission or their place, taken by

not think it could amount  to anything.

by this time,)   Iu his letter he  takes  a
fling at tbe Coeur d' Alene miners,  but
as his knowledge oi tbe Coeur d' Alene
is pi ottably about  as extensive as  his
knowledge of other mining matters, it ia
hardly worth contradiction.   He speaks
ol miners in this camp being in  (ear of

between Ten in and l'olain. The Indians
retireel from the open field and sought
cover in the thick woods, where the combat leiged for more than two hoil'rs, beginning al (I o'clock in thi* morning. The
report says the Indians were defeated,
leaving on the field 87 dead. The Mexican losses nre stated as 14 soldiers killed
and 3(1 wounded. Major Ruiz of the
National Gua'rd was mortally wounded,
ami Julian Ksponzo, captain of the Ya

and Tetebias, a lieutenant in the 10

An interesting feature of the repor
is lhe statement that several inhabitants
of river towns were taken prisoner by tlie
Yne-nis in July,' and have bfen releatf-d
and have returned to headquarters in To-

tetW       "THE ANCIENT
fV       ORDER OF
John Houston i« after the nickle-
iu-tbe-slot machines with a club.
The Minor u too busy with its blue
ruin editorial* to pay much attention
to the skin games in its neighborhood.
Two big coal companies are uow
being hauled over the coals by the
government for employing Chinamen
in their mines. These coal barons,
who think they are bigger tban the
law and can violate it at will, should
be sent to gaol for a time to let their
heads shrink. If a poor man were to
break the laws with the aame audacity
aa these coal barons, a long te rut in
the penitentiary  would be hi* lot.
Tbe "strike situation" here is practically unchanged and the lockout is
still enforced at some of the big mines.
Thero is a prevailing spirit of conciliation however and the mine managers realize the impossibility of getting Canadian labor to scab. The
miners, through their Union, are making an honest fight in trying to k:ep
the true facts of the trouble before the
outsido public. They rely upon tbe
manhood of Canadiau workingmen to
keep them out of the Slocan until this
fight for labor is won.

A favorite and really original joke
of D. T. Lowery* ia tbe oft reiterated
charge of jealousy on the part of New
Denver's neighbor towns toward* the
spot on the map hallowed by the midnight gambols of the only one. His
remarks are truly jocular. The jealousy he ao often sees must be a shady
relative of tbe blue devils and pink
elephants that only a course iu the
Slocan Hospital will dissipate, In
what respect should New Denver incite a flood of tbe greet* f urv! Because
of her minest Well hardly! Because
of her citizenst They're all right, although they are all leaving. Because
Of tbe Government Office 1 Tlml is
not stationary. Because of the business done by her merchant*. They do
their share, or ought ta It must be
because of her newspaper, (that ie now
looking for a new location.) And
thats where the funny part ot the joke
comes in.
