The latest addition to the list ol properties now being worked around Silver-
ton is tlie Fisher Maiden, which started
up last Monday* It cannot be definitely
■tated as yet whether this property will
be a steady shipper this winter or not,
although it ia known that the ni'inage-
ment will prepare for some immediate
The Fisher Maiden is, compared to
most of tbe Four Mile properties, an old
property, having made shipments nearly
two years ago. For various reasons, luck
of ore not being one however, the mine
waa shut down about a year ago and no
thing haa since been done towards developing the property. Considerable work
has been done on this property and tuu-
nsW aggregating 1000 leet in length have
Inm*. driven. Up to the date of tbe
•hut down, the Fisher Maiden had sent
down and shipped 125 tons of extremely
high grade ore, giving average smelter
returns of 270 os*.
The Fisher Maidentlies on the north
side of Four Mile creek about eight and
a halt miles from Silverton.
We are informed thst to-day the Congo
jtroup,on Red Mountain, is to entpend
operations ior Uie Beaton. This seems
unlortnnate, as it has one ef the finest
jrarfacn (-bowings of apything in the
camp. Tho present owner Frank L.
Byron enly acquired tho property a lew
weeks ago and as the property lies at a
high elevation, he haa not had time to
put tliinicainto than-to enable tlie work
to be carried on properlv Ihis wim.-r.
He bas therefore concluded to suspend
oueraiious for tlie time being, with tbe
intention of pushing developement work
In the sprint:, and another winter will
see him prepared f >r it. Tho wirk dune
this fill ou the property has itsta-ju-
strated it tube one of onr biggest propoid-
tions.   Conaideialih* work has be*-n Hunt*'
employed and work wiji
fast as possible and probably continued
all winter. Mr. Dawson has been fortunate In securing this property and its
having fallen into the hands of a man
who will dnvplope tnt\ work it is also a
fortunato thing for Silverton, as the
.opening up of this property means
another shipping mine from this town
In the near future.
The Condor Group, live miles op the
gulch above town, which ia under bond
to W II Sandiford, is showing up well
and for the amount of work done is a
remarkably fiat* prospect. The work
done has been confined to the Condor
claim, one or, tho group, and the ledge
haa been traced nnd stripped for 800 feet,
showing more or less ore the whole wny.
A shallow winze his been sunk, showing the lodge to be in place and improving with depth. Across-cut tunnel has
been started, having a present length nf
20 feet, that, will tap the ledge at a trood
depth and when completed will be 130
feet long. This tunnel wili be used as
a main working tunnel and is being put
in as it permanent improvement, the
size being 4>_ by 7).j feet clear at the
timbers. Buildings are being erected
and permanent winter quarters established and a forco of miners will bo employed all winter.
Tjie developement of this property
will be watched wilh interest by Bilver-
toniaus ns it bears every evidence of becoming another of Silverton's shipping

impossible to prepare tbe property for

The Essix eroup above town, lately
purchased by G. H. Dawson of Vancouver, is proving itself to be even better

dombt exists now but  that the  Wakefield vein crosses the group and it is only
a question  of Work   to develope  the
property into a  mine.   Three  tunnels
are being driven, two of which show  a
(Continuous streak of ore that will   pay
good  profits for  mining.    The   third
tunnel has just been Btarted and has not
yet cut the ore body, but It is only  a
matter of depth before the ore  is cut.

be gained on the property aad as  the

cost of developing the property.   The

Mr. Rackliff, Slocan Cily, reports that
his cabin on the Hoodo claim on Lemon
creek is completed and ready as winter
heudquarters. Tbe cabin on the Tail
Holt claim is also nearly completed.
Work on these claims will doubtless be
pushed ahead all winter.
A force of men are now ongiised at the
junction of the Wakelleld raw-hide trai"
and the 8ilverton waggon road, in building a commodious ore-bouse for this/
winters shipments of Wakefield ore. Unless something unforseen should occur
this property will ship about 75 carloads
this winter.
Ijocal Director Patterson and Engineer

It is rumored in Slocan City that the
much talked-of Springer creek wagon
road will yet be finished this fall. Tnls
ia as it should be, us this road is a necessity for the successtul working ol' Lemon
nnd Springer creek properties. It is to
be hoped that tbis rumor has something
behind it to warrant it and that work wil1
recommence at once.
Tho ss. Slocan bore a party of distinguished railroaders over tho lake on
Thursday. The party consisted of Sir
William Van Horn and the various provincial C P R otlicials. Just below Sil
yerton the steamer waa stopped loug
enough to allow the sports of the party to
shoot adeer, which obligingly swam out
to meet Sir William.
A squirrel trespassing on C P R property and refuain- to vacate, was attacked
by thst company's employees, who, assisted hy several dogs, who's dally scraps
had been pulled off, by armfu Is of rocks
and lucked hy half the rubberneck population of the camp, proceeded to enforce
their demands. After throwing several
tons of rocks and wasting about $2.00
worth of cartridges, 'hey forced the
squirrel to retreat, duly impressed with
the power of the great company.
Slocan City is once more in the ranks
of the progressive towns of the Slocan
and many improvements are being made
in and around the business blocks of the
City. Among others, we notice particularly the building of a cold storage room
for wood in the rear of C P Wicliman'e
barbershop and the installation of an
acetylene gas plant hy Teeter Bros., proprietors of the Wilson House. This light
has proved a grent success and the owners are greatly pleased at the brillant
appearance given to their establishment.

Not among the leant of the signs of our
returning prosperity was the bringing in
of an additional ten pack-mules for the
already large outfit of cur enterprising
packers, Anderson & Brady. With the
fall in the price of silver aud (he general
depression consequent therto, came the
determination to this firm to divide their
.stock, Mr. Anderson taking the old outfit of mules to faraway Glenora, aud we
are pleased to hear, has been most successful in securing freight at good figures.
Mr. Brady remained in Silverton with
the horses and has been able to keep the
outfit busy 111 delivering supplies to onr
various minus. As the different prospects
have developed and proven themselves
to bo mines capable of shipping large
quantities of ore, consequently needing
moremon and supplies, the firm found
itself unable to handle the freight. They
commenced adding stock, first an extra
team or two and lastly a herd of ten fine
mules, thus putting their Silverton outfit back to where it was and making the
firm one of tbe largest freighting concerns
in the provinoe.

-Thn Suit of the Bunker IIIII
and   Sulllv-n-Mlnlni   Solus   nnd
Uenernl Mewki
Mining men and residents of the OoeOT
d'Alenes nre "-keenly interested in the
suit which bus just been sUrted «t Boise
City by the Hunker Hill and Sullivan
Mining Company against the Last Chance
ii.iiip.iny und tlie Empire State-Idaho
Mining und Development Company. The
hitter iH tlie compuny organized by V.
Lewis (.'lurk und Charles Sweeney io^ike
over the property <>f the old Last Chance
These mines are at Wardner in the
Coeur d'Alenes. The pluintiir company
owns tho Steniwindcr claim, and is asserting thut it holds, through this claim,
tho apex of the grin t ore body of thc
defendtint company.
The ease wus set for hearing at Potu-
tello, Idaho, lust week, The Bunker Bill
people asked for an Injunction, which
win* refused by Judge Beatty ufter a full
ti earing.
The Hunker Hill and Sullivan people
claim the Last Chance ore body through
|iriority of locution of the Stemwindci'
fluini, which adjoins the Lout Chance
claim on the south. The pluintitl' inserts the light to follow the vein within
the planes of its end lines extended whicli
would include all the ore nl ready mined
by the l-sist Chunce and most of tint
which the newly organized Empire Stale
Main, coinpunv is mining und expect* l'i
mine in the claims beyond the Lust
Chance upon I tin same vein. The suit is
for an injunction and un accounting. The
temporary injunction having lieen refused, the case will now bc tried upon its
merits iu its regular turn in the liilei.il
It the Hunker Hill and Sullivan people
are successful in their suit it will stop
one of the largest dividend |Mying companies in the Coeur d'Alenes. Tlie company is ,i new* one but it has been paying dividends from the first month of its
organization last spring. The company
includes some large capitalists in New
Vork, where it maintains ofliccs in the
Slokeg building, on Cedar street.
While the Last Chance is the best developed chum in thc company's group, it
is only one of*. 17 claims which lie either
upon the great Wardner ledge or contiguous to it.
Ilie case is another of those tedious
ones involving extra lateral rights, and
since the contestants are both large corporations and able to fight long and with
determination, it is predicted that litigation will be king drawn out.
Th* Cyler-I.n.t Chance.
Tlio October session of the United
States court of appeals convened at San
Francisco last week. A number of decisions were handed down, and several
applications in pending suits were made.
In the case of the Tyler Mining Company against Uie Last Chance Mining
I ompany it was ordered remanded to the
lower court ami judgment for darningcs
modified. The companies disputed' Uie
right to certain lands in the Showhonc
mining district in Idaho and considerable litigation followed in the state federal and United States supreme courts.
The present action was over certain
amounts allowed for damages to thc I_ist
Chance Mining Company, the Tyler Company having filed a bond, pending the
hearing of an injunction suit to restrain
the I.ast Chance from continuing work
on the mine.
In rendering the decision Judge Beatty
Si.id: ■',
"While I realize that the total assessments again-i the Tyler company in the
two actions seem large, yet it must be
remembered that when Uie Tyler commenced these actions, the law of the
apex and iindergrc-und rights, as announced by the supreme court, was as it stands
today, and as shown by the county records the Tyler locul ion was junior to the
Lust Chance claim. The Tyler's only
hope of success was eiUier to overthrow
the apparent priority of tlie List Chance
location or procure a change of the views
of thc supreme court On the contrary,
the costs and damages awarded the Last
Chance are but a small portion of its
. actual losses suffered through this action,
but its chief losses are of such nature m
1 think cun hot be included in this taxation."
Mammoth Placer Mining.
J. G. Riehy, a prominent mining man,
lias returned to Ijewiston, Idaho, froiii
Denver, where he went two months ago
to enlist capital in a mammoUi placer
mining propositi^.. . What has been
known as tlie Big Bar on Salmon river
has puzzled covetous prospectors for* AD
yenrs, but engineering lenders and impractical methods of operation have left
thc auriferous deposit intact for a strong
company of practical mining men to
open nnd i*eap Uie golden harvest Uiere-
The bar consists,of*an area of more
than 100 acres of gravel 00 feet deep,
This vast deposit carries values from tin*
grass roots to the -bed' rock but the real
. pay streak is at the bottom and only
seven feet thick, To handle the tailings
ami strip tlie play streak has been the obstacle to suci^-gful mining on this bar.
Tho pay streak pi-ospects $2 a yard and
on this work enough in drifting has been
done in a crude wuy to build the Columbia river locks.
A steam pump was put (a p*n,,P „ few
years ego and it was used till the fuel
supply was exhausted. Then a 10-mile
ditch was eorsftructcd from a creek to
the hluir on the opposite bank of Salmon
river and the water waa brought across
that stream in a suspcnitadpipe Ij506 feet
long. This seven-inch pipe waa too small.
lt "woufcl supply only 50 inches of water,
and so small a head was smothered in
the oruuibhug debris and the batter cur-
vied off the gold, in fact, this tempting
prospect has brought disaster to many
investors but the success of the Salmon
River Cold Milling Company is assured
in advance.
Work will begin Immediately on a large
ditch to furnish a sluice-head und power
to run a pump to raise a plpehrod HW
feet above the river. This arrangement
will meet the conditions thut brought disaster to former operators. There is a
million in this bur and it seems to be
easily accessible to these practical men.
This mine is 50 miles from Ijewiston, near
the mouth of Salmon river, and directly tributary to tliis city.
Struck a Vein.
A contract was concluded recently between the Princess Maud Company uui
tho Jim Blaine Company of Republio
camp by which the Princess .Maud people
nie permitted to start a tunnel on Jim
Blaine ground to tap thc Princess Maud
vein. Thc ledge on the Princess comes
close to the Jim Hlainc side line. A tunnel will be started on the Blaine ground
and will run 300 feet through it. Its total
length will be aibout 382 feet and it will
tup the Princess Maud vein at a depth of
ulioiit 242 feet. This tumid will encounter tlie vein in wbout Uie center of the
claim so that drifting both ways may
be undertaken.
News came from Republic last week
that the crosscut tunnel started on Jim
Blaine, ground to mich thc Princess Mund
vein had entered a ledge on the Jim
Uluinc which has never been opened be
fore. At last accounts the tunnel Was
two and a half feet in quart/, with no
wall in sight. This strike is close to the
Butte k Boston end line and indicates
Unit the latter property also has a vein
which has never before been prospected.
Hit*h Ore on Admiral Dewey.
Arthur Webb, A. J. Burlette and Oie
Tufeson have obtained good values on ore
from the Adi d Dewey, a claim which
they located _•« May on thc north side
of the South Fork two miles below Os-
burn, Idaho. On the surface they obtained an assay of tjilO per ton, and from
the bottom of a 25-foot shaft they took
ore that yielded at the rate of 0." ounces
in silver and 2.2 ounces in gold. The
shaft will 'be continued until the lead is
found in solid formation, it being more or
less broken so far, and if it then makes
the showing it does now they will go
down the hill to where they cun run a
300-foot tunnel, cutting the ledge about
250 feet deep.
, 1Hm Idaho Strike.
What is confidently claimed, to be the
most important strike ever made in the
gold belt of the Coeur d'Alenes was that
on the Crown Point reeenUy. Tills claim
is situated at the head of one prong of
Trail gulch, on which some of the richest
placer-, of the early days were found, lying partly on the Trail and partly on the
Pritchard creek side of Uie ridge, dividing them. Rich ore has been found on
it for years, sometimes apparently in
plan-, but usually as tlo.it, and when
considerable bodies were found further
exploration has always proved them to
be merely fragments of the ledge broken
Francis Jenkins, one of the owners, put
up his Hi stamp mill to work thc Crown
Point und adjoining properties, but although he got some good ore out of a
small ledge, it was evident Uiat it was
not the same ore for which he was looking.
ln doing the assessment work this full
the parties engaged to do the work were
given the privilege of doing the work
wherever they deemed it advisable, and
they started in to find the lead. Their efforts were crowned with great success,
us they have shown it unquestionably in
place,.at intervals of 400 feet The ledge
varies from 10 to HI feet in width, showing free gold in generous quantities from
wall to wall wherever uncovered. A Mr.
Linden of Portland owns the controlling
intercut, and nothing can bc learned regarding further work on the property. '
A rlne Trip,
Willium Munson, who came from Chicago last spring for thc purpose of testing the overland route to the Klondike,
has just returned to Colville, Wash.,
from a trip as far north as Teslin lake,
and will remain for a month resting up
before he goes to his eastern home for
the winter. He says that Uie trip was
as good as might be expected, and in face,
wus a delightful summer's outing. Mr.
Munson and his party found thc country
good enough this side of Teslin lake, and
havo located several valuable placer
claims that they will go back to in Uie
Mining Voles.
Reports from Cooke, Mont., state that
the mill of the Daisy company is now in
operation, and it is confidently believed
that it will open a now era of prosperity
for the New World mining (listrid.
Cun Swanscn has returned from bis
placer diggings on Quartz creek, Mont,,
and has in his possession the largest nugget ever taken from that ground. It
weighs 215,pennyweights and is pure
gold. Its value Is more than $200. The
placer operaUons on Quartz creek this
year have been unusually successful, ond
all of thc cleanups have been satisfactory.
Anderson k Moore of -rSilver Star,
Mont., proprietors of thc Yellow Jacket
mine, have laid off the majority of the
men until a shaft is sunk and more
ground opened up so that the men can
work lo beilei advantage. They made
anoUier shipment of first class ore to
The camp of the mineral land commissioners at I-ithrop, Mont., has been broken up and the field work of the commission in that section will not bc resumed till next season. The members

work in other districts us long as the
weather will permit. The season's work
has been extensive and the ground thut
has been examined is all valuable.

ouly answer vouchsafed is that General

in the supplemental! report tor which we

Secretary Alger's answer contains
about 3000 woiils on the selection of Tain-

"New York hns lieen too content with

"But this exposition is a healthy edu

of thc east is the fruit of 300 years of

New York, Oct. 10.—A dispatch to tlio
Herald from Washington suys:
The United Stutes may submit a diplomatic protest through France to the
Spanish government agiiimit its action
iu sending au auxiliary cruiser loaded
with .uinn ami ammunition to the.Philippines, In any event thc matter is
under consideration ami it is believed
has been culled to the attention of the
American coiniiiissioners in Paris.
The cruiser in question is the Huenos
Ayres, belonging to the Spanish auxiliary navy, which, us Hear Admiral Dewey reported to the nuvy department several days ago, is due to arrive in Singapore October 111.
It is appreciated by the authorities
that Spain has the same right in the
eyes of International law to send reinforcements to tlie Philippines as this
government has, and any protest will be
of a diplomatic character and simply designed to make it plain Unit the continuance of the voyage of the BueuoH j\yres
is objectionable,
On the other hand, a  member of the
cabinet tonight said all the   Philippine
Islands except .Manila are iu the nominal
possession of Spain, and that it is Undoubted that the .Madrid government, if
it deems advisable to do so, has the right
to send troops to the islands to subdue
any insurrection that may occur.
Another member who talked of the
matter with the prealdent admitted that
Spain has the moral right to dispatch reinforcements to the Philippines but as
the forces of our government are iu control, it is within its authority to prevent
such reinforcements reaching their destitution. However, it is not expected
that the matter will go beyond a protest,
if it goes that far.
From the dispatch received from Chair
man Day, the authorities are still of the
opinion that the work of the peace commission will lie completed before eoii-
grese meets. Mr. Day takes iiuite un
optimistic view of the situation. It is his
desire, to limit the time for doci.-'ion of
the various points raised as much as possible, in order that Ihe organisation may
rench an early conclusion.

in some OS-el an plainly visihle, and in

pores for the secretion of the mucous in
the fish's head. The slime exudes through
the'divisions between the scales to the
outir pint of thc body, over which it

covering, transparent, elastic, and teiw-

of 'lime t-hich they secrete. The eel has
a vtry lihenil share, and an ordinary fisii
of two pounds weight will usually have
,i coating of slime u thirty-second of an
inch in thickness. One of the Important
functions of the fish's slimy coating is to
j.iotect it from the attacks of fungus, a
form of plant life found in ull water.',

when it is once lodged the process of its
reproduction is very rapid. It soon extend.-* over the gills, and kills the _sh,
The priimiry purpose of thc slime of the
lish is to reduce the friction when in mo-
tion, nnd increase it? speed. It nlso
series as a cushion to the scales, which
it thus protects from many Injuries.
The slimy covering makes the fish hard

eases the slime has a very •link smell,

Omaha, Oct. 10.—"The Minnesota Indians will see that they have made a
jJie.u mistake in going on the warpath,"
nays ("croni'ino, the Apache Chief, who It
one of thc Indians now In cump ut the
interstate congress,
"I hnve never been in Mintiesotn, but I
hear thut up there and for many li-.ui-
drcd miles beyond the white men arc as
many an the bludea of grass. If so, what
can a poor Indian get in a light? They
are making u grout mistake, and ai'O
foolish. For years I fought the white
men, thinking that my few braves und
I could kill them ull and that wc would
again have the land our Great Father
gave us und which he covered with game,
1 I bought, thut tho Ureal Spirit would be
with us, nnd thut after we hud killed
the white men, the bufralo, deer nnd an-
telo-ie would come back.
"After 1 fought and lost, nnd after 1
traveled over the country in which the
white man lives and saw his cities und
the work he had done, my heart wus
ready to burst. 1 knew thut tlie nice of
the Indian was run.
"There will lie no more big Indian
wars. The Indian's fighting days are
over nnd there is noihing left for him to
do hut be a beggar und live on charity

.Shut  and Killed   III*  Wife.
Tolluride, Col., Oct. 10.—Dr. 0. F. Ment-
zer shot and killed his wife Friday night
without provocation, He then pointed
his revolver at W. K. Monroe of Cleveland, O., a brother of Mrs. Mentzer, who
was visiting her. Monroe grappled with
the murderer and in the fight that ensued the doctor's skull was fractured. It
is believed he will die of his injuries.
Monroe wus not arrested. Dr. nnd Mrs.
Mentzer formerly lived in Denver. .She
left him on account of his cruelty and
obtained a divorce in Chicago. They were
remarried six months ago, Mrs. Mentzer
being assured that the doctor hud reformed.

The main use of the coverings at night
is to give the body the warmth that is
lost by reduced circulation of the Wool.
When the body lies down it is the intention of nature that it ahould rest, aud
that the heart especially should be IS*
licved temporarily of its regular work.
Sn that org-nn makes ten strokes a minute less than when the body is in an up-
rlght posture. This means tiOO strokes in
lid minutes.
'1 hen-fore, in the eight hours flint a
man usually spends in taking his night's
rest the heart is saved nearly 5,000
sirnl.es. As it pumps six ounces of Wood
wilh each stroke, it lifts 80,000 ounces
less of blood in this night's session than
it would during the day when a man is
usually in un upright position.
Now the body is dependent for its
un until on the vigor of the circulation,
and, as tlie blood flows so much more
slowly through the veins when one is
lying down, the warmth lost in the reduced circulation must, bc supplied by
extra coverings.

We are in receipt this week, among
our exchanges, of No 1, Vol. 1. of the
Kootenay Mining Standard, edited
and published by D. R. Young of
Nelson. The Standard comes with a
clean make up and full of interesting
reading to the mining world. The
Standard ii edited "to fill a long felt
want" and as the editor adds, "That it
will do so there can scarcely tie a
shadow of a doubt", can any more be
The trouble in Illinois ia tho natural
outcome of the system used by mine
operators through tbe Eastern States,
in getting miners with families to locate at their mines aud then gradually
cutting wages, threatening to bring in
niggers, Chname.c and dagos, if they
did not suouiit, These cuts are stood
until the miner is down to a starvation
wage and the next cut drives him to
desperation. Property is destroyed,
blood-"h*id follows, the law steps in and
the companies win. But tho stand
of Gov. Tanner in this trouble in
protecting the citizens of his state
against .optaida cheap labor is to be
admired by all lovers of .justice.

The following clipping from an e_-

unique definition as to what constitntes

of aeveral propertier, the scribe saya:-

The SiLVERTOXi-jf is working for
the adyanceinent of the town in which
it is published. Our method ot procedure is to gather and publish each
week all mining news of a reliable
nature that has occured around the
many mines and prospects surrounding
our town, believing that by tusking
known to the outside world the
resources of Silverton, we.will advance,
its welfare. Tliat our mining news
is read aud credited is seen by the
prominence. giv?n to the mines of
Silverton in many nn-aspupers, published far and near. In most cases
it will be noticed that the S.lvp.r-
TO-IAN is copied verbatim but seldom
i« any credit given us for these clippings. We are always ■■Ind to see thin
news re-printed, btlieving that good
results will follow, but at the lame
time we would like to sen tho oredit
where it belongs for thu articles. But
a short time ago tb.-re appeared in one
of the prominent count papers nearly
half a column of matter, quoted from
our pages, and the credit git en to a
paper which had appropriated our
news without crediting it to ua. We
repeat for the benefit of .these clipping
editors the remarks made by our
contemporary the Brooklyn Tiroes,
which is alto   a  safferer:-
'• Editors who do this sort of thing
would not put their hand in your pocket,
yej they might as well aa to steal your
matter, lock, stock and barrel, and
palm it off as original. A word to the
wise is said to be sufliccnt."
