Co. is now listed on the Montreal Stock
The manawment of the Vancouver
•Mine stood treat to a turkey supper for
their employees, last Saturday.
E Rammelmeyer, Superihtendant of
ol the Emily Edith mine, left on Friday
on a business trip to Rossland.
Steady «ork has been done in the tunnel of tlie Rico claim adjoining tbe town-
! gite and it is now in 100 feet.
C E Hope, of Hope Gravely Co of
Vancouver, and a heavy owner in the
Emily Edith mine, arrived in town on
Three four-horse teams irom Koch's
Stables pulled into town on Snnc*',y to
haul down the Emily Edith oro. They
had finished their contract on Tuesday.
Dave Moore, the ore buyer for the
Trail Smelter, put in the fore part of the
week looking up the lake mines and has
succeeded in capturing moat ol the ore
being shipped.

Mino was one of the extaerta who examined the big Eugene Mine tor the
company which has just bonded it for
nearly hslf a million.
W. Dmitri brought down aoire good
specimens of surface croppings from the

6urfs.ee rock.
The big St Eugene mine, near Movie

for $400,000, The bond waa eigne i by
Dr Bell-Irving, agent for the purchaser,

A California paper in a recent iaaue
notea a ease of a mine owner in Nevada
country, justly eonvicled of penurv for
falsely swearing to an affidavit of labor.
He swore that he performed labor during tbe year 1898 upon bis placer claim
to ths fair aud reasonable valuation of
$100., and in September, 1808, Bled hi»
affidavit. It wra proven at tlm trial that
be had only sunk a bole 15 feet in depth
by '>>.. feet in diameter, the same being
in loose gravel ■ It was also proven that
the labor performed conld be done in
three or fonr daya at a cost not exceeding
$24, hence the conviction.
If similiar action were to lie taken in
tbe Slocan against thoae who show no
hesitation In swearing in some of their
assessments as being $100. worth uf work,
it would be awkward for 6omo but good
for the many.
An interesting Retnrn has been received at this office from the Queen's
Primer, showing the amount of taxes
paid hy the various shipping minosof tho
P o*,ince during the yore eutflrtjj June
80th. '97 and '98. By it we le irn iu the
time mentioned, West Kootenay hud 8u
shipping mines; Fust Kootenay had 8
mines that bad aliipped; Cariboo had a
list of 28, ol which number, 15 bore Chinese nam* a; ten mines to Yalo District
had contributed to the treasury, two In
Lillooet and one in North Nanaimo.
Of the amounts paid in in 1893 the Le
Roi leads, having contributed $7,528. the
Payne coming next with $5,9.2. and the
Hall Mines a good third, with $4,411.
The total collection from these mines
for the year ending June '98. waa f36\
061., of which tbe minea of Silverton
contributed $340.85.
Shipments of ore from   Silverton   for

rosds  nnd   trails  have   been  iu   good
condition  and  ore  bus  been   coming
down without IntorruptlonB.   New that
the Comstock concentrator haB started
up, we hope by next week to bave It on
out shipping list.    Tlie mill having a
capacity of sixty tone per day, lt  Is expected that the company will be able to
■hip from 40 to 00 tons of concentrates
Per week.
According to returns presented to the

or going to be built, 73 railroad lines in

During tbe debate on the "Health Act"
considerable complaint was made regtid
ing the working ol the present law. O ir
local member, Mr. Green, said that the
Provincial Board of Heaith had been
moat arbitrary in its methods. It had
insisted ou forwarding certain oi its pet
fads instead of obeying '.be dictate! "f
comuiiu sense. He pferred briefly to
Kaslo, Slocan City and Silverton as three
places which had Buttered from tho work
of the Provincial Board of Health.'
Big Enders and Little Enders.
A great row waa raised in the House
on Tuesday over the Queen's Counsel
Bill. Tbe disuiiat-ion revolved aiound
the question as to who should and ahould
not wear a silk go* n in Court. As Ion--
aa the law of decency is observed, 'loe-*
it make much difference what the lawyers wear?
The Placer Mining Bill ia up again for
amendment. McPhil!ip*< of Victoria has
iiYtroil'ieed an-nr.imiimrnt lor**ni*>v- tlio
bar lately placed against the aide of placers to aliens and against tbo right nf
aliens to inherit aame. This is the way
tbe law should have been in tbe first
place and will make an excellent law out
ol what is now a harmful measure.
Clifford ol Cussiar haa also un amend*
ment to the Placer laws. By it the discoverer ol a new placer ground is entitleil
to a claim 500 feet long, a party of two i»
entiiled to 10C0 feet and tbe limit is alsc
fixed for parties up to eight in nnin.*er
The amendment also includes a clause
by which tbe Government will be staked
in on all locations. Mr Clifford, cominn
from a placer country, ought to know
what ia wanted in the matter of laws, but
we fail to see why be wishes to interject
a stiip oi government land between any
two claims.
The shipment   ol ore   from   Slocan
Lake points up to and including tbe
present week, Irom Jan. 1, 1899.

This week the Emily Edith mine sent
out its iuiiiiil shipment for ths year,
coosli-ting of two carloads. The Emily
Edith mine is not prbpertv speaking a
shipping mine, but is what is termed, a
concentrating proposition. Thero are
however streaks of clean ore, from six
inches lo four feet in width, in tlie
Immense ore body exposed in this mine,
any one of which would by itself
constitute a valuable mine, but whose
value is po over shadowed by the big
bodies of concentrating ore exposed, tliat
it !•» lom sight of by the casual observer.
Situated as It is within one mile of
Silverton, tlie Emily Edith is destined
to lie a big fuctoi in the future of the
town. The principal work on the
property consists of two tunnels driven
directly on the ledge, and numerous
crosscuts, a description of which haa
been already poblb tied In thepe columns,
tin re lieing at the, present time over
1500 feet of underground developtuen
wotk accomplished. The ledge is t>hown
to-cnnl.'in big ore bodies, in places being
over 6j feet wide, all ore. Enough ore
ii now on the dump to justify the
er-'Ctioti of hconcentrator nf at bast 200
ton*, capachy per day, and cnoiwh ore is
blocked out in tlm mine to em*ure its
continuous ruining for u long time.
Tbe Emily Edith lies, like most, oi onr
mines, in tbe Samlon slate foiraation
and the character of the clean ore is a
finegrained wavy galena with occasional
bbtches of coppor sulphides. Tbe
concentrating ore will run aliout eight
into we und the concentrate*, will
average from 200 to 250 ounce* in silver
and 50 per cent !• ad per ton.

that the output from Ymir will l>e close
ou 7,000 tons for the month of February
from the six shipping mines, viz.: Ymir,
Dundee, Porto ltico, Tumiirac, llluckcock
and Fern. In the suiunier there will also
have to be taken into calculation the
Fairmont, Bullion, Wilcox, liig Horn

will be shipeis. Ymir's future looms out
very brightly, ns big iuterosl will be taken in the camp as soon U the news
reaches London.

declared a regular dividend of *M per

The Sulllvun Strike.
News came in that an unlooked for
strike wns recently made on the Sullivan
group properties at Fort Steele, H. C, disclosing a big lodge of galena carrying copper and gold, lt has not lioen determined

There is no tieosuiy stock now on the
market. Rome of thc largest stockholders, amongst whom tire Col. Wiu. Kid-

Krennerite, a mineral not previously
identified from this country, haa been
found In the Independence mine at Cripple Creek. It occurs in brilliant crystals
of a pale yelowish bronze color, but tin-
white on. cleavage fnces. Eliminating the
insoluble matter, an analysis shows the
mineral to contain 43.86 per cent gold,
0 40 per cent silver, and 55.80 per cent
tellurium. The crystals are small and
about a9 broad as long, and the prismatic
faces nre striated. They have a perfect
basal cleavage, which is a prominent feature of thc mineral. Thc lack of any appreciable quantity of silver in the Cripple Creek ores, ns shown by the returns
of the smelters (. Is proof thnt much if not
nearly nil of the mineral passing ss syl-
vanite is either krennerite or its sub-R-ie-
eits, cilverite. Krennerite ranges from
silver-white to brass-yellow in color, and
is so near sylvanite in its physical propertiee that frequently Uie eye cannot distinguish one from the other.—Georgetown (Colorado) Courier.
All the great copper mines of the United Stntes were discovered by accident
rutin r than thc wit of man, says the Boston News Bureau. The pigs uncovered
the Calumet & llecla. A wandering cow
is responsible for the Quiney. The Tarn-
Brack was a piece of bull luck by reason
of the fact that its vertical shaft struck
the Calumet vein in richness, just undei
the only large worthless spot found in thc
Calumet vein. Hnd the great tract o{
barren ground separating the Calumet
nnd the llecla continued a few hundred
feet lower down and made barren the
upper acres of the incline of the Tamarack property, thc Tamarack might
now bc of little account instead of a
dividend stock as above $200 a share.
These remarks arc emphasized by the
fact that the Tamarack management
spent some yeurs ngo two or three hundred thousand dollars to the north of
ELearaarge trying to find the Kenrsnrgc
vein on the Seneca and Ameek proper-
tics to make thereof a paying copper
mine. The effort was fruitless, but a
venr ago un overblown tree showed thc
Keexearge vein to be just to the oust of
where it hnd been looked for in the north-
. em properties, nnd the result is the Mo-
hawk mine, which promises to be a dividend pnycr in a few years.

Bishop Potter startled the members of
tho Church Temperance Society at a
meeting in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel of
New York, Jan. 10. In his address he
Baid the saloon was a necessity under tins
present condition of nffuirs. .Joseph II.
Choate, in a speech, took the opposite
view. The meeting was held to gather
money for the proposed Squirrel Inn, a
temperance establishment for the Bow-
cry, where the working people cnn go
and spend their evenings. Bishop Potter
was to speak upon "The church nnd intemperance," but he confined himself utmost wholly to saloons as a social necessity. "We may abuse it," he said, "an-
ithcmntize it, but it is a necessity so far
as social intercourse, relaxation nnd refreshment are necessities. The saloon exists because you nnd I huve given our
brother no better things, lt is the truth.
You may not like to hear it, but so it is.
Wo who belong to the so-called favored
classes havo our clubs. But the poor
man cannot afford $100 a year for a
club, und so he frequen's thc saloon.
Ivct there bc no mistake; the man who
keeps n saloon defends it, and justly,'as
the poor man's club. There arc more
poor than rich, more saloons than
clubs. Thc mun who seeks the saloon
and who suys it is the poor man's club
tells the truth. Can anyone blame the
poor laboring man, weary of his work,
because he leaves his so-called home, his
wife, his squealing children und seeks in
the brightly-lighted, comfortable saloon
the society of cordial companions?"
The temperance people present were
■tutted at such sentiments from Bishop
Potter, but he was thoroughly in earnest.
His address had the effect to cause the
rich men present to go deeper into their
pockets for finance to establish the Squirrel Inn.

We understand that nn offb't is to

Could n* y   better   advertisement   be

Hundreds of copies ot the Iilv-Rtoh-

facts weekly repeated in a local   press
are of a   hundred  times   morn   value

Tbe large tract of rich mineral
crmr.try, lyirg between Four M'le
creek and Ton -file creek and extending back from Slocan Lake f_r fully
ten miles, sections of which are
developed, some partly prospcted aid
some practically u i-prospected and
unknown, is suflbient warrant far the
existence of the tiwn of Sdvertcn.
The uatural outlet in fact, the only
outlet for thii vast tract of country, is
by way of the Four Mile car yon,
at the mouth of which is situated cur
town. The nature cf the country
aloi g the lake shor**, hetwe* n Silverton
and Twelve Mile creek, forbids tb*
establishing of a town.
With the min*»s of Four Mile, Eight
Mile and Ten Mile behind us, the faith
of our citizens in  our  town  is well
founded.    It is only necessary to visit
the mir.es, to  study the geographical
lay of tbe country behind us,  to take
the   plans   of    the   vat ions   mining
companies operating in thi* section, to
arrive at the conclusion that Silverton
is bound to lie this camp of the Slocan.
Yet the   fa'-t   remains,   that notwithstanding the backing of Silverton,
other   towns,   not having   one-tenth
resources of tbis c_-ip have surpassed
it in growth, population and   building
up of local • nterprises during thn past
year,    Why is this the   easel     Is   it
necausoour citizens do  not  pull  together for the   advancement  of  our
town?   Why is it that we  an  forced
to depend for  our banking   facilities,
for our amusements and for dozens  of
other   thing**,   upon   our    nnghbor.-?
Silveitmiaus have faith in their to»i,
but why do they not con lino to force
tho truth of th"ir faith in  their town
upon outsiders.
