commission to D. P. Bowers, formerly
lessee of the mine, which amounts to
nearly $20,000.
Since the snow disappeared many
parties have visited Sheridan camp

. 'ii 111'o ml it-m   Mineral   Output.
According to the report of the state
mining bureau the total mineral product of California for 1898 is valued at
$27,289,079. In 1897 it was $25,142,441,
in 1896 $24,281,398, and in 1895 $22,-
884,664. The gold product is placed at
$15,908,478, a slight increase over the
$16,871,901 produced in 1897. As the
drought of last year lessened tne product by some millions this demonstrates an active development of gold
mining. Copper takes second place for
the first time with a product of 21,543,-
229 pounds, valued at $2,475,168, a very
great increase.
Quicksilver, so long second ln importance, holds third place. The product Increased to 31,092 flasks, worth
<ttnntlii an a Gold Producer.
The rapidity with which Canada is
winning a place among the gold-producing countries is shown by the recently published official figures. In
1897 the Canadian output of gold was
$6,027,061; last year it has risen to
$13,700,000, placing Canada In fifth
place among the gold countries. Of
this amount $10,000,000 was taken out
of the Klondike. Official estimates
place the output from the Klondike
this year ato $30,000,000, and British
Columbia ls also expected to do much
better than In previous years, so that
Canadians hope that Canada will soon
be near the top. The yield of silver is
also growing larger from year to year;
ln 1897 It was $3,323,395, supplied
chiefly by the British Columbia silver
Montana'-i Mineral Output.
Eugene B. Braden, governmental
statistician, has just Issued his report
of Montana's metal product during
1898. There Is an Increase in the gold
output, but silver, copper and lead
show decreases as compared with the
preceding year. The totals are: Gold,
$5,247,912, as compared wtih $4,469,430
in 1897; silver, $19,159,482, as compared with $4,469,430 ln 1897; silver, $19,-
169,482, as compared with $21,730,710
In 1897; copper, $26,102,616, as compared with $27,798,913 in 1897; and
lead, $809,055, as compared with $926,-
619 in 1897.
There is an Improvement in the production of silver ln mill bullion, but a
decrease ln the output generally.
The decrease In the copper output Is
20,179,186 pounds, but the Increased
price made the value of the lessened
quantity ln 1898 nearly equal to the
product of 1897. The heaviest falling
off wsb suffered by the Anaconda company, which closed down a large portion of its mine during the year on account of fire.
The number of miners employed during 1898 was 11,096, of whom 9,428
worked In precious metal ores, and
1668 mined coal.

The question of holding ilie celebration,
although never in doubt, was a matter
associated with difficulties' 'never

had they to contend "with il.e l.onc-t
opposition uf a iit-igM-r-ri. -, town, but
wore forced to fight against the
undeihand actions of a rival committee,
which stoop, d to deception ti-accomplish .ts ends,
The manner adopted by the three
towns, Kaslo, Silverton and New
Denv.r, in extending their invitations
to the public, shows their statu- in the
community. Kaslo, with her hosts of
friends, won by former successful fet. s,
issued her invitation in an independent
way. Silverton, a newer town,
follows Kaslo's lead and eu'leuvored in
every honorable way to secure the besi
list of events for her visitors. New
Denver acts the tupplicant Her
invitations art luiftai with a mendicant's touch/ "She places loin If mi
t-V>ject for Lharity.
Of i be towns of the Slocan, none un-
so dependent on lhe goodwill of the
r- st as ib New Denver. Kaslo and
Silverton stand on their own feet.
New Denver rests on government lots,
not yet paid for.
Ibe Slocan is tired of supporting a

natural reasn. s for its   e_istep.ee.
It may be unnecessary to remind the

L-bor troubles are again rife in tbe
Coeur d' Alenes, and tbe Bunker
Hill and Sullivan Co, aro mourning
the loss of their mill, whu-li has bem
blown up, presumably by the Union
mimrs. United States troops have
heen sent into Wardner, the scene of
the trouble, and no doubt .verythinx
will soon be settled. The blowing up
of a $-200,000. mill seems a deplo.able
thing, but tbere is no doubt two side-,
to this question and all difficulty could
have been avoided if the Bunker Hill
aud Sullivan Oo, had had the ser.be
to have recognized the Miners Union
as a legitimate organization and had
treated with it as such, instead of
taking the stand it did,, denying any
r glits to the union. The Spoka. e
daily papers appear to be adopting th.
same course they took during the
foimcr trouble, "which reflected hut
littlo credit upon them whon the true
facts of the case were sifted through
tho courts. All should suspend judgement until both sides in tbis dispute
havo had a hearing.
