and lave a good showing on each.
Men will be put to work at once and
tin* properties developed.    It is the
intention of the owners to do  sufficient work on these claims to demon-
n nte their value and to then form  a
company or have some company work
thero.   The claims are owned by Mr.
lUmmelmeyer, in company with F. F.

THE ARLINGTON.
The Arlington mine, one of the
shippers of Slocan City, is sgain raw-
hiding ore to that point and will soon
nuke another shipment. Frank
Watson, one of the principal owners
of this promising property, is daily
expected in the Slocan, and hia arrival
is looked forward to by those expecting the te-openiog of the Fisher
Maiden.
RRCO'S FIRST RBrORT.
We are in receipt this week of a
°°py of the firat report of the Rico
Mining & Milling Oo, This report is
fully illustrated, splendidly gotten up
snd must be highly satisfactory to all
stockholders in the company. The
R-'co Milling <k Mining Oo. was incorporated in September 1896, and
■>nce then paid dividends amounting
to 1280,000, besides having at the
present time enough ore in sight to
P»y dividends for several years. Tbe
•verage value per ton of all ore shipped has been $187.20, and the average
net value to the "impauy waa $141.99
Per ton. At the date of uritiug tho
r»port (May 1, 1897) tbe value of ore
in sight was estimated to be $2,650,-
000.
The company intend erecting a concentrator %t  ao   estimated   cost   of
$40,000 and an serial tramway to cost
$35,000, The tramway will be 9,993
feet long, with a carrying capacity of
250 tons a day. This will reduce the
transportation charges from the mine
to the railroad from $6 per ton to ten
cents, aud the charge of packing up
supplies from $15 to ten cents. Fifty
thousand shares of the Reco capital
stock were reserved until suoh time as
the tramway and concentrator became
necessary, and these are now to be
placed upon the market.
TE8LIN LAKE RAILWAY.
Canadian papers from Halifax to
Vancouver are now busy praising or
condemning the Government contract
with Meurs. Mackenzie & Mann for
the construction of the Teslin Lake
Railroad. Sir Charles Tupper, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and Wm. MacLean
of the Toronto World, engaged in a
windy combat on this question, in the
Dominion House. The papers on tho
Sound are ridiculing the attempt and
the cities of Victoria aud Vancouver
favor the construction. Looking at
the question from the view of the
Mining Critic, it seems that the gold-
right over three and a half million
acres of Yukon land together with an
estimated subsidy of $250,000 from
this Province is a big price to pay for
130 miles of narrow guage railroad,
but from another view the contractors
have not made so good a bargain. One
million dollars is to be expended on
the line before any grant of land is to
b- made and the entire line is to
be completed within six months or a
cash deposit of $250,000 now in the
Dominion Treasury will be forfeited.
In an interview with the Manitoba
Free Press, Mr. Mackenzie says:
"I have read in the papers that
som> opposition to the arrangement
has developed in the west, but can
you mention any other, firm or corporation in Canada that would take
hold of this work on our terms! I
feel certain that you cannot; and you
may have observed that none of the
criticisms have even suggested that
others would have tenoVrod had tho
work been put up for public competition Had tenders bt-en invited no
Causdians would have bid, Our terms
must have been the best, as a strong
United States company was in the
field with an offer, and if it had been
more favorable than ours the government would certainly have accepted it
Some people complain of the suddenness with which the arrangement was
sprung on the public, but it is scarcely
rational to suppose that business men
should expose to the world their plans
and projects before their negotiations
have been consummated."
Tbe scheme is a gigantic one and
Canadians should feel proud that Mr.
Msckentie is the man to undertake it.
Mr. Mackenzie stsnds in public view
aa a man who has never had a failure
and whose business connections form a
chain from England to the Klondyke.       __	
JAPS FOR THE KLONDYKE.
It is rumored thst 5,000 Jsps are
on their way to the Klcndyke to engage in mining in competition with
hite labor. The sooner Mongolian
emigration is prohibited into Osnada
the better. Thank heaven wo, in the
Slocan, don't like the color of the
breed, and tht time has come for the
people here to investigate the records
of the politicians, who will shortly be
asking for our support, on the Mongo-
lisn question. In the last issue of the
Revelstoke Herald, a correspondent
informs us that the Chinese have
located in the Slocan and Lardeau.
To the best of our knowledge, this is a
mistake. We are sure of it .regarding the Slocan and if numerous precedents count for anything it would
not be advisable for John Chinaman
to come here.
ONTARIO KLF.OT10N.
Nominations for the general Provincial election will take place February 22nd, elections March 1st.
The February number of the Kootenay Guide is out with a change of
time card and railway fares; also new
information regarding the Calgary
and Edmonton routes to the Klondyke.
MINE INSPECTOR
MaeDonald Impeding the Nines of
West Kootenay.
4 BRIGHT OUTLOOK FOR SLOCAN
The  Mines  or llrltl.h Columbia   Now
the Center fur the Capital   of
the World.
D. J. MacDonald, Provincial Mine
Inspector, waa In Silverton, inspecting
the mines this week. He was visited by
a representative of the Siia'ebtohian at
the Victoria hotel, aod talked at length
on the resources of our Provinces. This
is my first tour of inspection of the
of the West Kootenay mines," said Mr,
MacDonald, "and it is an interesting
one." At the present time ol tbe year
his trip is made very unpleasant by the
numerous slides and accidents along the
railroads. Mr. MacDonald left Silver-
ton (or the Queen Bess mine on Wednesday. Ho is wellkaown in this bunt,
as be was, a short time ago, superintendent ol the Galena Mines, which mine
he visited in his official capacity while
here.
In regards to the business depression
in the Slocan. Mr, MacDonald says that
he regards it as merely transitory, and
predicts a general revival in all lines,
especially mining, In the early spring.
"The present rush to tbe Klondyke,"
said he "although It is being felt as a disadvantage in the Kootenay at present, is
bound to help you all. It has drawn tbe
attention of the world to Canada, and
capital will flow into British Columbia
from now on, which, if it were not for
tbe Klondyke excitement, would have
found its way to South Africa. Our
prosperity is only beginning."
A Western railway; the Great Western
and tbe Golden Chariot In the Northeast fart of the town; the Nickel Plate
and the Ore-Or-No Go, just south of the
Center Star; the Poorman, between the
Le Boi and War Eagle *, tbe Josie, northwest ol the Le Boi; the Annie and the
Bockingham, better known as the West
Le Boi & Josie, which lie just west of
the Le Boi and the Josie; tbe No. I,
west of the War Eagle; tho Tekia, between the latter property and the Josie;
the You Know, north of the No. 1; the
Surprise, north of the You Know, and
the Golden Queen, west ot the Surprise
and bounded by the Coxey, tbe Mountain View and the St. Elmo."
SUCCESSFUL BALL.
If the K. P.'s of New D.n/er are
prouder of one thing than another, it is
the success *ableb always attends their
very popular dances. Their masquerade
ball held last Monday evening, was no
exception to the "Yule, and was pronounced by those attending as being the
best yet of the aeries. Nearly thirty
couple, in gay costumes, tripped the
light fantastic, aud maoy were present
as interested onlookers. From Silver-
ton the attend snee was not as large as
usual, as there waa no sleighinx and no
boats. Mrs. B, Watson represented a
Gypsy Queen and W. W. Bouch attended attired as an Irish policeman.
TWICE CAUGHT
B. Pollard and Bob Anderson were
caught in the tunnel of the New Brunswick, near Ymir, recently, by a slide,
which took them two hours to tunnel
through. They cached themselves in
their cabin, together with John Header-
son, their employer, to avoid further
danger, when suddenly, with a crash,
another slide tore their cabin to pieces
and carried them a couple of hundred
feet down tbe mountain. Henderson
and Pollard came out on top, bnt Harrison was buried in the snow. He was,
however, rescued and recued and received no serious damages. Tbey will
discontinue work for the present on the
New Brunswick.
ENTEBPBISK-NEPAWA 8LIDES.
The Enterprise slide, which csme
down last Monday, tearing out in its
course the bridge over the creek aud
seveial of the out-bnildings ol the Enterprise. A slide at the Nepawa blocked
the road for some time, but is now cleared for travel.
THE ENTERPRISE BONDED.
An option has been given on the
well known Enterprise Mine of the
Slocan, B C. The property is controlled by David Hyman of Denver
OoL and John A. Finch of this city.
The mine has been examined by Mr.
Kendall, the engineer for the London
<fe B. C Gold Fields Ltd. (who were reported to have purchased tbe Whitewater last month). The first paymmt
on the option, if taken up, will bo
made on the 15th. of the month, and
the pric« is stated to be $450,000. If
the deal goes through it will be ono of
the largest on record for the Slocan
district As the London & B. O. Gold
Fields is one of the strongest English
corporations operating in the Province,
such a purchase of a silver-lead property - rich as this one is - cannot but
aid greatly in inducing further capital
to invest in similar properties and thus
benefiting the district.—Spokane
Miner.
GONE TO ENGLAND.
Hon. C. H. Markintosh,representative
of the British American Corporation,
has just le It for England. He will return abont the first ol May to commence
work on a grand scale on his recent purchases for the company. The Rossland
Miner prints the following:
"Mr. Mackintosh was seen just before
leaving by a Miner reporter, relative to
the rumor that his company is after tbe
tjlocan Htar, tbe famous silver-lead
property ol the Slocan.
"I have not approached the Slocan
Star people regarding the matter, nor
have they approached me, but I cannot
aay what is being done st the London
office," replied Mr. Mackintosh.
"Mr. Mackintosh, while here, secured
20 claims, all in the north belt, at an expenditure of about $1,285,000. The claims
for ii almost a continuous chain, from
the Columbia-! Kootenay, on tbe east,
to the Golden Queen, on the west. The
holdings of the corporation include the
Copper Jack, the Kootenay Fraction, the
Tip Top, the Kootenay and tho Columbia, in the Columbia & Kootenay group
on the mountain of the same name; the
Golden Dawn, practically a full claim,
lying almost due east on the original
towns!to, and crossed by the Columbia
WELL DEFINED.
Says the B. O. Review, of London,
Eng.: "A shrewd definition of the
Klondyke situation was given to a
Press representative by a peculiarly
observant stockbroker. 'Ic comes just
to this,' he said; 'all the transportation companies on the Pacific alope
an engaged night and day in telling
cheerful lies about Klondyke in order
toseeure a rush of passengers—in the
certain knowledge that they will have
to take them all back again pretty
quick.'"
THE PEOPLE GULLED.
The ^Toronto   Globe  of    January
29th,  in  its account of    the   John
Eaton At Co. investigation  prints  the
following:
CLOTHING OLD KXOCGHT TO VOTE.
"The next witness, Mr. Charles
Richardsou, said he had been in the
clothing businessfor 35 years 'and
knew it slightly.' He paid special attention to the quality of the Mammoth stock of clothing which was
transferred over to the Eaton store.
He said 'some of the lines were old
enough to vote."
"Was it moth-eatenl"
"No, they had no time to get 'moth-
eaten in the Eaton store; they were
handled too much."
Witness thought there was from
910,000 to $15,000 worth of this old
stock. One of the methods of disposing of it was to class it as "spiff'
goods for selling which a salesman got
a premium of 25 or 50 cents. Tbe
witness further described the stock as
"ratty," and declared he would not
have bought it at any price, as it would
do a merchant more harm than good.
Being pressed, he ssid he would not
give more than 25 cents on the dollar
cost price of it It was an irregular
stock; a sise 40 coat would be put
with a size of 36 trousers, and a good
deal of it had beeu outside the Mammoth door from day to day for thro
to four years and had be^omo discolored. Still they got rid of most
of it by throwing it on the bargain
tables." And yet every day sees
orders sent to those Eastern sharks
from those who save their money in
the Slocan and spend it iu Toronto. If
the wage-earners depended on the
Easterner to help this country and
thua help them he would be taken in
worso than at present when he secures
the muohly advertised "bargain."
Possibly there is some jest in the
suggestion that for it's propelling
power the battleship Kentucky might
be fitted out with corkscrews.—Fort

EVIL INTENTIONS.
London Fel>. 9.—The Star yesterday under the heeding of "Raid of
the Klondyke" quoted an anonymous
American correspondent, who recently
arrived in England, as saying with
reference to the releif expedition to
the Klondyke, that those who are
familiar with the facts "know that
this txcuseis as flimsy as Jameson's
desire to releive the women and children of Johannesburg." Continuing
the anonymous correspondent remarks
 "every American kno we this  to be
another Jameson's raid, and that the
Americans intend to keep controll of
the Klondyke. The Klondykers have
already announced that tk-e stars and
•tripes will be flying at Dawson City
by July 4th. ltwonld please a large
body of Americans if the Klondyke
could be made a pretext for war between England aod th- United States,
which would resolt in the annexstiou
of Canada."        	
WARSHIP MAINE DESTROYED.
At,9*« r- m., last Tuesday, the
second-class battleship Maine, the pride
of the American navy, waa blown np
and wrecked, in ihe Havana harbor. It
is estimated that 100 of her crew was
killed and wounded, and Captain Sigbee,
ber commander, was seiiously injured.
Tbe Maine was built in 1890 at a cost
of 13,800,000, and was the swiftest battleship in the famous White fleet.
Tbe cause ol the explosion is '.not
known, but it ia supposed that, a small
magazine in the bows first exploded
The people ot Havana were gieatly excited over the affair, and the wharves
were crowded with thousands of people.
Gapl In Sigbee, in bis telegraphic reports, requests Americans not to form
opinions ,abont the affair until further
information can be furnished. General
Blanco and his officers at Havana express their deep sympathy for the sufferers.

RETALLIATION.
The,Seattle P.-I. declares that Canada
must pause in her grabbing of all the
advantages of tbe Klondyke. As Fort
Wrangel is the key to the Stic keen river
route, unless the United States government should dredge tho channel ol the
Stickeen, all ocean steamer vessels must
stop there. As a retaliation the Americans are advised not to improve this

A GOOD ENTERTAINMENT.
The Somers Family concert given last
evening in McKinnon's ball, under the
auspicesof tho local I. 0. F., was the
best chow that ever visited Silverton.
The songs were new and well rendered,
and nothing in the program was in the
the least objectionable. Miss Nellie
8omer» has a well trained soprano voice,
and her numbers received many encores,
the local bits of little Master Perrin
Somers were very pointed and verv applicable. Dutch song was a feature of
the performance, and the diminutive
songstress, Miss Lottie Somers, captivated the audience with her singing and
dancing The coon songs of Master
Carl were good.
LEASE THROWN UP.

definite had been  done.   He returned
from Ihe mine this morning und says
that the ore chute   is improving everyday     Mr. Kneebone, yesterdav, told a

BRUTAL MURDER.
Word has been received of a shooting
affray at Kuskanook, resulting in tbe
death of one of the participants. The
(ju'arrel arose over thn payment of some
money in a saloon. The murdered man

threats made against him and was shot
down unprepared. The murderer was
still at liberty when this newt was received, and Is probably heading lot the
borlei* and safety. It is hoped that he
has been arrested before row, and that
British justice will be satisfied.
