The number of millionaires in the
senate stands in no danger of being
diminished by the new members who
have been elected to that branch of
congress. Already there are five new-
ones added to the list, with a possibility of the election of several more
men whose wealth aggregates over the
required six figures that are necessary
to keep up the standard of the millionaires' club, as the senate has been
designated by ex-Senator Ingalls.
Chauncey M. Depew of New York, John
Kean, Jr., of New Jersey, Nathan B.
Scott of West Virginia. Mr. McCum-
ber of North Dakota, and W. A. Clark
of Montana are the newly elected ones.
Wisconsin will probably send a millionaire senator, and several more are
expected from the western states.

The purchase of the Ducktown copper mines by a syndicate, which was
reported a week ago, ls cosummated.
The Lewlsohn brothers, copper kings
of New York, are the purchasers of the
Pittsburg * Tennessee Copper company's plant and the plant at Duck-
town. The price paid was $157,500 ln
cash. Other adjoining property is also
purchased at an additional expenditure of nearly $100,000.
Kilt-rift's.-  Camp.
W. H. Giles came In from Sheridan
camp last evening for the purpose of
obtaining supplies necessary to work
the Kittle Clyde claim in that camp.
The work that will be commenced
within the coming week will consist
of a small amount of preparatory
work and then a shaft will be started
and continued until the value of the
property ls established beyond controversy. The company that has assumed control is a Rossland Institution and is reputed to be amply backed
with cash. The Kittle Clyde is on the
same ledge as the Zella M. and carries
silver-bearing ore of high grade. The
ledge has been traced the entire length
of the claim, by cuts, which have exposed a ledge varying from fonr to six
feet in width. It Is fair to presume
that it is about five feet on the average. The ore body is from 21 to 36
inches In width.

A table showing the average yearly
output of gold and silver for Germany,
United States and the British colonies
and dependencies is analyzed by Consul Constable In a single sentence In
which he says: "Thus the United
States and the British colonies together produce somewhat more than
one-half of the total annual output of
gold, and nearly one-half the annual
output of silver throughout the world.'
A further analysis of the table Indicates that the Untted States alone produces about 22 per cent of the gold of
the world, and over 35 per cent of the
The coke production of the southern
states in 1896 was over 10 times the total production for the same section In
1880, while the production of the
United States in 1896 was less than
four times the output of 1880. The
southern states show a material gain
in 1896 over that of any year since
1880, having produced 3,817,255 short
tons, or 32 per cent of the total production of ihe whole country.

The south drift on the Trade Dollar
mine is forging ahead and sending out
quartz that samples from $40 to $50

The Iron Monitor continues improving, with eight inches of ore in the
north drift at 140 feet deep on the dip
of the vein.
The Troubador vein still improves
going down. The quartz Is harder and
better looking and the foot wall Is
more permanent.
The North Star tunnel is In 260 feet
and going ahead. There are small
stringers of quartz near the mouth and
one also in a 25-foot shaft within a few
feet of It.

The lessees on the Noonday claim
in the Slocan are meeting with good
success and besides several feet of
good concentrating ore have six Inches
of clean steel galena exposed In the
face of their workings.
Another strike of ore ls reported
from tne Noble Five, close to two feet
of mineral having been encountered In
iho No. 8 tunnel. In the other workings ore continues in place. Seventy

Olive Prlngle of Greenwood has
bonded the Helen II. Gardner, Copper j
Farm Vancouver and Humboldt
claims from C. A. Sanders, George
Wolf and J. Miller for $120,000, 5 per
cent down. The properties are located
on Copper mountain, in the Slmlla-
kameen country, and are said to have
remarkable ledges of copper ore.
The shaft on the Brooklyn and Stem-
winder, in Greenwood camp, Is now
SOO feet deep, and a double pumping
plant 1ms been ordered, having a capacity of 400 gallons per minute. It is
t-elleved this will keep the mine clear
of water.
Good progress Is lielng made In the
shaft of the Umatilla at Rossland,
which is now down about 80 feet.
On the O'Shea, In camp McKinney,
the shaft has reached solid quartz, and
four and a half feet of high grade ore
are found in the bottom of the shaft.
It Is now agalnBt the British Columbia law to thaw dynamite within 150
feet of the mouth of a tunnel.
The Vulture mine, near Kaslo, was
the scene of another big strike last
week, two feet of solid galena ore with
one and a half feet of carbonates
showing in the face of the tunnel, making a continuous vein of galena the
entire length of the tunnel, which is
now in over 180 feet.
The main ledge ln the Stemwlnder,
lh Falrvlew, has been tapped and is
over seven feet wide.
The Kaamloops, In Camp McKinney,
adjoining the Wiarton, has been landed by C. E  Race of Rossland.
At the Iron Mask, at Rossland, the
shipments are being somewhat Increased and the mine will be a daily
shipper before long.
Heavy ore shipments from the Slocan Star and Noble Five will soon lie
made, and the shipments from the Slocan mines will soon average 1,500 tons
a week.
The Slocan Star will add 60 men to
its force just as soon as the water will
permit the concentrator to be operated.
It is said that $1,500,000 is a very
conservative estimate of the ore in
sight in the Enterprise, on Ten Mile
creek. This promises to lie one of the
greatest of all the great Slocan mines.
Sidney 11. Nichols, for Illinois capital, has secured the Interest of H. G.

The Boston A Montana mines at
Butte and the big smelter at Great
Falls were Bhut down last week. The
shut-down is said to be for the purpose of awaiting the outcome of the
proceedings over the receivership of
the Boston & Montana. The supreme
court has refused to enjoin the district court from carrying out Its orders and placing the receiver in
charge. Receiver Hinds expects to be
in possession In a few days, when all
the mines and smelters will reopen.
He says all the old hands will lie given
the preference when work is resumed.
Some of the copper mines on the

The Republic mine will pay its fifth
dividend April 15. It will be the usual sum, $30,000. This ls the first payment by the recently Incorporated
company and Is 1 per cent on the Issued stock of $3,000,000 par value. This
makes a total paid by the mine to date
of $150,000. The former dividends
were 3 cents per share on 1,000,000
shares, but as each of the old stockholders has received three Bhares of
new stock for every one share of the
old, the dlvlt.end Is the same.

After the great hurrah and flourish
■>f trumpotsthal was made upon the
inauguration of smelting Canadian
lea-I ores in Canada, is, it not strapge
that'outside smelters still bave their
ore buyers^in the fie'd, competing for
ore and cut bidding our local smelters,
in spite of the fact that they have to
transport the ore thousands of miles
before it can reach the^point at whicli
it is to be treated]
Some have been unkind enough to
insinuate that tbe C. P. R. smeltihg
scheme was only a bluff to keep private
capital from engaging in the industry
in this country and' thus saving tho
miuer the difference between a short
haul and one of thousands of miles,
which would be a loss to the C, P. R.
in freight. Others have stated,
claiming to have authority for the
statement, that tho C. P. B. recetves
five dollars and fifty cents per ton
from the Smelter Combine for every
ton of lead ore that they take out of
the country. This may be a good
thing for tbe C. P. R., but is it of any
benefit to the mining industry, the
lead miner or the Dominion?
Tbis same monopoly is now inaugurating ■ crus d ■ t. hive, the government pay them a bounty on what lead
ore they do smelt, this bounty to be
paid by the taxpayers of the Dominion.
As no one is receiving any benefit,
except a monopoly, from the lead ore
being smelted in Canada, we do not
see why tbe taxpayers should bo nsked
to contribute one oent as a   bounty.

Mr, Editor,
I desire a little space in your
paper to advertise a real grievance tha
the .'ilverlon miners are sniff rinK under.
That is the paying of a hospital fee and
when in need of medical attendance, being treated like a pauper or charity patient. It is a matter that the Silverton
miners should seek to remedy by co-op-
eratiog with tho Ss.ilon Miners'Union.
A few weeks a_o I came down from Ihe
Wake8eld mine, where I had worked for
son.e lime, a very sick man, aud made
application to be admitted to the hospital
as I was entitled to be, and was refused
admittance. I came, back to Silverton
and was very sirk, in fact nearly died.
When I wos well I secured work at the
Emily Edith mine and when I refused to
pay a feu to this hospital I was discharged.
I appeal to the miners tosee thst this
matter is looked into us I am but one out
of many who have paid hospital fees and
been refused, >-,d,miltauce when sick. Cannot the Lake miners co-operate with the
Sandon miners to remedy this abuso?
Youre truly.
