Practically a'l Ihe ore that is shipped
Irom Shi'-an Lake points for the remaining four months of the year will be that
much in excess of the total shipments

have been shipped, cun pared with 4030
last year. Next mouth the Arlington,
already Slocan's biggest shipper, will begin on a contract of supplying HX.0 Ions

well aa 100 tons of clean ore; the Hewitt
will continue to ship 400 tons a month,
and a carload a Week can be counted on
from the Bosun. Besides these steady

But yon must have hope, aud you must

Curtis Brott, 45 years old, was killed
recently In the Silver King mine near
Nelson. The accident resulted from a
confusion In slgnelllng for lowering

Referring to the recent strike at the
Winnipeg mine, Richard Plewman,
managing director, says: "The vein
has been crosscut and proved to be
eight feat wide."
The management of the Onondago
mines on Champion creek has decided
to Install water power and a compressor plant and double the size of the 10

■It ls to be hoped there is to be a resumption of work on the Le Roi at
Rossland, whether that work is undertaken by the company or by the contractor. It will be a good thing for the
town, for the company and for the men.
George Aylard of New Denver and
Nell Oethlng of Slocan have closed a
deal on the Gold Viking group, two
miles eaet of Slocan, which has been
under bond since November to Thomas
S. Dunbar, representing Portland men,
who form the Viking Development syndicate.
The American Boy Mining company
has begun work opening up the Black
Hawk, another of the claims belonging
to the American Boy group. While the
Black Hawk will be developed by the
tunnel which is to run to connect with
the American Boy tunnel on the other
side of the mountain, yet the primary
Idea of the management is to bring out
the ore from the big property through
the Black Hawk and then use the Last
Chance tram.
dt seems pretty well settled that Nelson will be the site for the lead refinery to be built In British Columbia under bonus from the Canadian government. The construction of the plant
Is looked forward to with much Interest by lead miners of northern Idaho.
It Is likely to he of as much advantage
to them as to the lead producers of
Kootenay. It will give them a means
of having their ore handled practically
at their very doors. As a result they
will need pay freight only on the metal
Instead of on the crude ore in shipping
the product east to market.
The deal for the Rockland group of
mining claims, situated about five
miles from Silverton, on Eight Mile
creek, will be completed shortly. Two
years ago the Graves syndicate secured the property, paying the original
owners a certain cash sum and contracting to organize a stock company
within two yeare, and to make the final
payment to them in stock In this company. The company is being formed.
Considerable development work has
been done on the property, and the
Graves syndicate has expended between 125,000 and $30,000 since the
flrst payment was made. The mine la
a low grade proposition, with values
running about equal ln copper and
gold. The showings are Immense, and
lt ls considered the equal of any In
British Columbia.
Whitaker Wright has resigned the
managing directorship of the Le Roi
company. Mr. Wright made a desperate effort to retain hie post as head of
the great mining company, end he hoped to stave off the opposition at least
until the annual meeting In December.
The opposition, however, became too
strong. It was evident tbat he would
be forced out at the special meeting of
the company Thursday In I/ondon.
Rather than to submit to the humiliation of a removal, he resigned. The
downfall of Mr. Wrlgnt is directly due
to the efforts of .Henry Bratnober, the
famous San Francisco mining man,
who, perhaps, ranks higher than any
other American In tbe confidence of
London mining financiers. Mr. Bratnober Is himself a shareholder In the
Le Roi, and he Is closely allied with a
number of other shareholdies.
The strike at Senator W. A. Clark's
big United Verdi plant at Jerome, Ariz.,
is ended.
The Republic railroad Is making
great progress and work Is being rushed from both ends.

as they can be secured.

■Former Lieutenant Governor Sprlggs
of Montana Is back from a trip to
Prince of Wales Island. He says prospectors ask fabulous sums for mines,
and that placer mines of Alaska are
outclassed by lode properties and Its
wealth is quartz.
The officers of the Methow Gold 4
Copper Mining company, operating on
property on McKinney mountain, Okanogan county, Wash., have deceived
word from Superintendent Landers
that the men had encountered seven
feet of high grade ore in the upper tunnel.
The sensational affidavits filed ln Silver Bow district court in the Minnie
Healy case, in which it is alleged that
Judge Harney of Butte was Improperly influenced In rendering a decision
favorable to Heinze Interests , have
reached the supreme court through official channels.
The development of the marble deposits around Valley, in Stevens county, Wash., is going rapidly ahead. The
Interest which has been created in the
east through the exhibit of Washington marbles at the Pan-American exposition Is already reflected here
through inquiries for marble and for
marble properties.
A letter and samples of rich ore were
received recently In Spokane from the
Bill Nye mine, ln Jackson county, Oregon. The samples just received are
from a nt* lead just encountered, and
the ore is the richest yet found ln any
of the other rich leads on the Bill Nye.
The ore is hanging together with glittering gold and the assays go up into
the thousands.
John Gray, superintendent of the
Crystal mine, says that the ledge which
the tunnel had encountered and which
was supposed to be the main lead has
proved to be another vein, and that the
tunnel ls now through It and has also
passed through another of about the
same width. After passing through
these two veins the mother lode was
encountered, and both walls have been
cut. Shipping Is to begin Immediately.
The expedition which was sent by

who acted as assayer; J. J. Stewart,
an assistant, and William Pierce, a-
practical miner.
Newton HIbbs has returned to Lewis-
ton from the Pierce City mining district, where he examined some extensive placer Interests for eastern investors. He reports a general revival of
the mining Industry, throughout the
whole region visited, both in quartz
and placer mining. A great deal of development work Is being done on the
established properties and new strikes
are reported from every quarter.
