The management of thc Trail smelter
expects to be able to blow in the new
lead furnace about March 1st. A great
quantity of Slocan silver lead ores have
been received at the smelter and if the
experiment proves successful the Trail
smelter will have all the ore it can handle
of the lead variety.
Hen Hur, Reynblle.
Ben Hur—A great body of ore is being
exposed in this mine and it is increasing
daily. The long drift is following the
ledge, nnd a clean breast of ore is in
the face. By the time a custom mill is
ready for business here, Ben Hur will
have a hundred thousand dollars' worth
of ore in sight.
The  Hi public Mine.
The Republic—Very flattering returns
come from ore encountered in the drift
making for Jim Blaine ground. The ore
body is wide and rich. One extraction
continues without interruption, and the
bullion output this month will be large.
The mill is running smoothly and with
much larger capacity than formerly.
British   Columbia   Properties.
There is in sight in the Noble Five
mine a body of ore estimated at 5,375
cubic feet. Calculating 000 lbs. to the
foot and $100 to the ton, the mine is
worth $191,250. It is thought at Sandon
that this ought to run up the stock of
the Noble Five at a bound.
The Payne last week shipped 50 tons
over the K. ft S., and 300 tons by C. P.
R. Last Chance shipments were 40 tons,
Reco 20, and Ivanhoe 40, a total of 450
tons for Sandon for the week. Queen Bess
of Three Forks shipped 42 and Idaho 1704.
The Whitewater shipments were 64, 'and
McGuigan 67.
Chance In Mining; law.
Some criticisms have been made that
the proposed change in the mining law of
this state does not give the locator sufficient time in which to perform the work
demanded. From our point of view 90
days is not too short a time in which to
do 10 feet of work to hold a discovery
claim. A locator who cannot do that
amount of work in three months' time
would probably not find time to do it in
as many years. The new law proposed
in this state has been adopted by the
leading mining states and has been found
to work well and without injury to any
prospector who is honestly trying to show
that his claim has more merit than a few
stakes in the ground and a notice upon a
piece of paper.—Mjner * Electrician.
Camp   MciKlnnry.
The report comes from Cam^i McKinney
that remarkably rich assays have been se
cured from the Minnehaha claim. From
the first 40 feet on the shaft the average
assays were $100 per ton in gold, and
some assays went as high as $200. As
sny-* taken from thc cross-cut at 65 feet
gave $118 in gold. At the 100 foot level
a drift was run to tap the vein and the
first ore struck went $135. The ore at
this depth averaged $27.40 in gold. The
pulp from this assay gave some fine
showings of free gold and the concentrates assayed $355.87. A sample from
the same ore with thc galena yielded
$125.50. A heavily mineralized streak in
the center gave $177.36.
The Bunker Hill and Last Chance owners are trying to tie up all adjacent properties. The Bunker Hill company now
owns over 80 claims. High price of lead
is the stimulent.
The building for the new five-stamp mill
on the Winnie Group, near Murray, will
bc put up in April. The lumber is now
on the ground.
J. Wharton, who has charge of thc
South Peacock mine in the Seven Devils
for a Boston company, has bonded the
Great Vale copper claim near Cuprum
for $10,000.
Lucky Boy ores at Custer City, Idaho,
are worked over plates and Wilfly tables,
Baving about 67 per cent of the values.
Tailings have accumulated to the amount
of about 10,000 tons, and the company
will put in a cyanide plant to rework
$7.27. The management is very much
elated over what they regard as such a
good showing, and caluclate that the
mine will soon go on the dividend paying
The Babcock mine lies on the west
side of Wild Horse crirek, about six miles
from the town of Ymir. It is under lease
to Frank Davey, M. E. There are about
20 men employed and ore is being shipped to the Northport smelter at the rate
of 20 tons per diem.
C. P. Richardson of New-come, Idaho
county, has been operating two giants on
his Moose creek placers the past year.
His ground is on an ancient channel, 800
feet above the bed of the present south
fork of Clearwater river. He says he has
two miles of ditch, 800 feet for dump, 135
feet depth of gravel and a channel 800
feet wide.
The Bunker Hill ft Sullivan tunenl,
connecting the mine with the mill, is being driven at the rate of 325 feet per
month. It has been driven about 4000
feet, with 0000 feet more to go before
completion. The 9-inch main from the
compressor to the mine is two miles long
and goes over a great mountain. This
main will bc laid in the tunnel when the
latter ia completed.
Where Mercur now stands was situntcd
the town of Lewiston in '69 and '70, when
silver was discovered. Very rich ore was
shipped, but the vein was pockety, and
thc camp was finally abandoned. In its
palmy days it had about 1,200 inhabitants. The silver vein lies from 100 to
200 feet below thc gold vein and has
scarcely been prospected as yet. Some attention is again being paid to it.—Mercur Mercury.
The Neihart Miner says: "So modest
are the owners of the famous Big Seven
mine that they did not announce the last
two dividends of $30,000 each. Yet such
dividends were declared for September
and October, and there is ore enough in
sight to continue such declaration of dividends for some time to come. The mine
is rapidly changing from a silver to a
gold producer, although the silver ore encountered is very high grade.
Work has been commenced on the new
smelter at Cascade, by C. A. Stoess, who
has been placed in charge of the work.
The most fortunate circumstance in connection with the work of building this
structure is the discovery of a large body
of clay, which may be used in the manufacture of all the brick necessary for thc
construction of the buildings, while lime
for fluxing purposes in sufficient quantities has been found near thc site of the
smelter. Thc flume for furnishing the,
water supply will be a mile long and
about three feet square.
The mines at Wallace, Wardncr and
Million are mining approximately 100,000
tons of ore per month, which ia coneen
tniled to about 18,000 tons before ship
ping to the smelters.   The mines which
produce this are the Bunker Hill ft Sul
livan and Last Chance at Wardncr; the
Tiger ft Poorman, Helena ft Frisco, Stand
nrd. Mammoth, Black Bear and    Hecla
near Wallace, and the Morning at Mullnn.
It is estimated that the output of these
properties for  1899 will  be an  increase
of 20 per cent over that of 1898.
The Old Abe at Wardner ia being developed by means of a 1500-foot crosscut
tunnel. Good bodies of silver-lead ores
have been encountered, as well as rich
streaks of copper glance. Its ores are a
good deal in the form of chalco-pyrites.
This property belongs to John Finch and
St. Clair Brothers of Wardner, who will
put in a compressor plant early thc coming spring.
J. L. Parker, engineer and general
manager oi the Dundee Gold Mining
company, has had thorough tests made
of the concentrates turned out by the 50-
ton concentrator put in to treat the low
grade ore of the Dundee mine near
Ymir. Concentrates from the coarse jig
of the firat run gave returns, two tests,
of $24.90 and $30.10. From thc second
screen, from two assays, $50.80 and
$50.82 were obtained.
February Report of the New York Clear-
lnK House Banks—The Cash Be.erre
the Mu ic-'xt for YeaTi-I.ar«e Demand
for Mom*j---1.IIUI1*! Inereaalng.
York, Feb. 20.      The Financier
The dopwits of the New York clearing
house bunks, according to then* statement
of February 18 are withiu a small percentage ot" $900,000,000. Their cash reserve is $258,066,«00, the heaviest accumulation of funds ever reported by these
institutions. In fact, the cash balance of
the United States treasury, including the
$100,000,000 gold reserve, is only about
$14,000,000 above this figure. Considered
as a reserve it constitutes 28.66 per cent
of the enormous deposit total, or $34,-
373,825 more than the 2T> per cent which
is arbitrarily held against deposit liabilities.
This is almost $10,000,000 in excess of the
idle cash reported for the same week ln»t
vcar, and reveals the remoteness under
normal conditions of any probability that
money may go to an unusual figure, owing to the activity of exchange transactions and the sums required in the financing of new trusts.
Tlie banks, to tell the trutli, nre exhibiting a degree of strength in the face
of present demands upon them that is
little short of marvelous. Within the pa-it
week, despite the increase of $9,113,100 in
deposits, necessitating enlarged reserve requirements of over $2,250,000, their surplus reserve decreased only a little over
5*1,000,000. The gain in cash was due to
deposit additions. Specie receipts were $3,-
634,000, nioHily from the Pacific, and the
losses of legal tenders were about $2,500,-
000. This shrinkage waa due to shipments to interior institutions. But that
ihe demand forecasts a continued loss h
uncertain, us the interior bunks are remarkably strong in reserves nnd will probably be able to eupply their own needs
without culling on balances here.
The loan expansion of $8,567,700, judging from known conditions, ought to lie
traced to stock exchange sources, especially with reference to securities returned
from abroad. Hut a closer analysis of the
system indicates that special operations,
involving two or three banks at the most
have brought about the increases and ''•>-
creases. Thus the deposits of one in.' -
tution have been swelled above $7,000,000,
while   its  loans  arc  ut  least  $5,000,000

Great  Northern  Wreck.
Spokane, Feb. 20.—At 6:30 o'clock yesterday morning the eastbound passenger
train on the Great Northern railway was
wrecked on an alkali flat eight miles west
of Wilson creek and 108 miles west of
Spokane. The cause of the accident was
the spreading of the rails, caused by the
accumulation of a small pond of melted
snow, which softened the roadbed and
permitted a sag in the track. The engine,
the mail car and the baggage car were
burned. Three members of the train
crew were hurt, but not fatally, while
half a dozen of the passengers were severely shaken up.

New   French   President.
Paris, Feb. 20.—This election of M.
Umbel by a single rollcall, and by republicans only, is ihe greatest republican victory since Grevy's walk over the course.
The new president comes from a part
of France where the Roman power lasted
longest, namely, Marsan-c, in thc depart
ment of thc Drome. He gives the impres
sion of remote l.utiu origin and looks to
be a solid, practical man who sees the
facts of life just as they arc. As president
of the senate he has hnd otliciul experience tliat will bc useful to him as president of the republic, but he is essentially
a plain, iniddlc-cJas.* man, whose mind »j«
sharpened by his practice at the bar in
thu provincial town of Montellmar, in
the south of France. He i.s there most
popular, and everyone at Montellmar
counts himself a personal friend of Loubet,
who, as mayor, county councillor, deputy
and senator, always acted as the servant
ot thc public.
He received 483 votes against 270 for

of-war San Jacinto is also here. Three
hundred Americans from Cuba arc due
here to join the insurgent (conservative)
forces. Mitrailleuse, tint ling, Krupp und
Qotchklss guns arc also exi>ccled here as
additions to the insurgent arms.
Greytown was Miiiounded by the
Rough Kidcis when the gunboats left, A
force of liberals is due at that port.
Colonel li. VV. Winchester, chief of police at Puerto Barrios, has joined Reyes.
Four hundred men are awaiting Reyes'
arrival in Uianada to Hock to his standard.
The conservatives are volunteers, and
engage in their ordinary tusks during the
day, while ready at any time to respond
to the bugle call. If a choice were given
them, they would prefer Clarence, the exiled chieftain, to President Zeluya.
The foreigners here support the conservatives. Order is generally prevalent.
The Norwegian und Hritish craft that
were impressed by tbe insurgents to oarry
troops have been released.
The Liberal Kspoii-i snys the revolution will last only a nionlh.
Senor Ktfpinosu says the cause of the
discontent against President Zelaya is
widespread and well grounded. Ilia uncle
hud heretofore been un intimate friend
and supporter of Zelaya, but recently lie
had nol been able to approve or support
Zelaya'* conduct as president.
In addition to levying the tariff taxes
on the eastern coast, Zelaya liad causeJ
to be summoned tiie leading native capitalists of the country, and, declaring
them to lie enemies of thc republic, had
caused them to bc mulcted in lines, iu
most instances equivalent to their entire
available capital.
If the departmental fiscal agent failed
to collect the tines, the unfortunates were
committed to the pciiitcnli.uy without
trial or form of law, placed ln chains and
kept incommunicado, and in many cases
denied food or water, until the fine was
paid, whicli in all cases purged the prisoners of their declared treason.
Kspinosa says these facts have estranged the good people of the republio
from Zelaya, and that Reyes confidently
looks forward for support fram them and
the active aid of the eo-ssrvative
church patty of the republic.
Kspin.^a said he learned before leaving
Bluefields that the Hondunu goverament
has dispatched men and arms frOU Tegucigalpa to Zciaya's aid. The Honduras
allies were said to Ik- commanded '•>' lil'ii

When the cbiel sings "Anni. Laurie"

Till the tears are on their eyelids and

When they chant the stirring wai-3on_»

Then you're fairly in the middle of a

When the plot begins to thicken nnd

When every tin pot chieftain has a

When they'd s II a Queensland station

When thews one Mac on the tnble und

When the half of thein are sleeping

You will know that you're assisting at
a (hie?) Scotch nicht.
When the last, big bottle'*? empty, and
the dawn creeps gray ami c.iuld,
And the latt clan-tartan's folded, uud
tho last big lie is told ;
When they totter down the footpath iu

To the peril of tho pa8«ers and the ti.no

It is gratifying to see t'io dot *r-
uiined stand taken by the Government
in regard to the restriction in the
employment of Mongolians on public
works. The answer sent tlowu to the
Federal authorities, In response to
their hint Hoarding tin- repeil of the
anti-Mongolian laws, shows that no
interference in these matters will be
at all  acceptable.
Finance  Minister   Cotton    in   his
Budget speech, states that the miner iu
comparison with the lumberman, the
merchant and   the   farmer,   pays but
little if any   taxes,   end    proposes   to
double the tax on the mineral  uutput
of the minis.    This in itself is a small
matter, as the tux on the net output of
the mines   ii one  of the.  hast of tlie
many taxes that the  mining  industry
has to pay and,  a-i a general  rule, a
mine that is shipping cun utfird to pay
a   tax.    But his    comparison of  the
miner with the   fanner, is   no   doubt
resented hy the mining element, from
ihe woikii.g miner, who pays  $5.  to
the government for tha   privilege   pf

The Dill introduced into our lo.al
Legislature by Sir McPhiilips of Victoria and entitled "An Act to amend
the'Placer Mining A-t' " is, from a
mining point of view, about the most
sensible piece of miuing legislation
introduced during the present session,
up to date. The bill is fair to all who
wish to engage in placer mining in
this Province, aud While still reserving
the right to locate ground to British
suljucts, it gives aliens an opportunity
to purchase placer property aud
allows them the privilege of hicouing
locators, upon declaring their intention
under oath to become u subject of
Great Britain. This bill, if pissed,
will have a tendency to encourage
immigration and prosprcting and to
make it an object for the alien to
become a Eritish subject and take up
his per-uaiit nt residence iu this country
It is to bo hoped, that in the inteiests
of the mining itidustiy this bill will
nasi the house and become the law of
tbe land, for as it now stands Hi-itUI)
Columbia has taken a step backwan's
iu her mining laws and stands at tin-
pn sent only on an rquality with the
Chinese and their "shut door" policy,
