The Okanogan country extends from
Lake Chelan on the south to the Canadian boundary line on the north, and
from the Colville Indian reservation on
the east to the Cascade mountains on
the west. This territory Is larger than
the state of Massachusetts and embraces a number of different mining
districts, known as the Twlsp, Methow,
Simllkameen, Chelan, Horseshoe, Ruby
and Slate Creek. The ores of these
districts are gold, copper and silver,
the two former metals predominating.
Gold and silver are always weighed
ln troy—12 ounces to the pound, 480
grains to the ounce. Gold is $20.671824
per ounce and $0.0430663 per grain.
One grain r<ild button from an assay
ton of ore, 437 Vj grains, one ounce
avoirdupois, is $1,38712 for the ton of
ore, 32,000 ounces and 32,000 grains of
gold. One one-hundredth of one grain
gold button from same assay ton ls
$13.7812 for the ton. One-tenth of one-
hundredth of one grain gold button
from same assay is $1.37812 for a ton.
The management of theZela M. Gold
Mining Co., of Sheridan camp, in the
Toroda district, is shipping about a
ton of sacked ore to the Tacoma smelter for a test. It is said it will average
between $300 and $400. The districts
of Toroda and Sheridan are within 30
miles of the Okanogan river, where a
good wagon road can be operated, and
if the river is opened for navigation by
a small amount of dredging necessary,
the ore from many large properties in
operation can beshipped to the Sound
for treatment, at an advantage. This
improvement will be done by the government this summer, as the appropriation ls available and the survey made.
Work has again been started on the
Plngo, a goll and copper property located about six miles west of Bossburg,
on the slope of the Kettle river. About
300 feet of work has been done on this
property, and there Is considerable
good ore in sight.
The experience of Jimmy Doyle, the
millionaire mayor of Victor,    in the
Cripple Creek district, also Illustrates
the element of luck In mine finding In
Colorado.    Doyle, who had learned the
carpenter's trade, but did not follow It,
was driving a hack in Manltou when
tbe Cripple Creek excitement began in
1891. In Colorado Springs was a young
plumber named Jimmy Burns.     The
two were acquainteo, and together tbey
went to Cripple Creek   to try    their
luck.     Neither knew anything about
mining.     Battle mountain, near Victor, was then covered   with   location
stakes.       There was a piece of land
comprising about one-sixth of an acre
that had no owner because it was considered worthless.     Doyle and Burns
took up th.s land In the   belief   tbat
something was  better than  nothing.
They sent for John Harmon, who was
employed in driving a street scraper
In Colorado Springs, to come and help
them dig on their claim.     Harmon's
mining   exper.ence consisted of what
he had learned as a child In picking
slate for tne screens of Pennsylvania
coal mines.   For months tbe trio put
in hard work sinking their shaft without a sign of pay ore.   Their acquaintances sought to discourage them, but
they persisted, and were rewarded by
striking a vein tbat made them millionaires.
The Last Chance Is keeping up Its
splendid record of one car per day and
from the appearance of the mine lt Is
safe to say that the record will be kept
up during the entire year. This ore
nets from $1,200 to $1,600 per car.
At a meeting of the directors of the
Boston k Montana Mining Co., the regular quarterly dividend of $4 per share
was declared, aa waa also an extra dividend of $2 per share, an Increase of $1
per share over previous dividends.
The shaft at tne Hunter ln the Coeur
d'Alenes, Is now down 16 feet. It Is a
double shaft and some remarkably fine
galena shows all through It.
On the Winnipeg mine in Wellington
camp they are down to the 300-foot
level and have crosscut a six-foot ledge
and drifted on it ln a southerly direction 80 feet The other workings con
slst of levels at the 50 and 100 foot
The ore shipments for the week ending April 22 and for the year to date
(from Rossland mines) are as follows:
Le Roi, 2,620 tons for the week, 21,530
for the year; War Eagle, 1,360 for the
week, 7,165 for the year; Iron Mask,
36 for the week, 742 for the year; Evening 8tar, 36 for the year; Deer Park,
18 for the year; total tons for the week
3,916; total for year, 29,491.
The raise on the Morning Glory has
been completed. This connects the
tunnel with the surface, and affords
good ventilation to the mine. The
work of driving the tunnel will now be
rushed. Foul air caused a suspension
of the work for several weeks.
It Is the general Impression among
those who claim to be familiar with
the matter that tbe tunnel on the RI
Caliph will cut the ledge within the
next few days.
The machinery at the Mountain Lion
mine is working to perfection. The
cross tunnel has been driven 126 feet.
The rock is exceedingly hard, almost
as the reef that was passed through
just before encountering the first ledge.
It seems quite probable that the ledge
that is being run for will be found as
soon as the hard rock has been passed
through. The south drift is in 100
feet. The quartz steadily improves in
value ln the face of the drift.
The Rebate shaft ls 70 feet deep.
The ledge has been crosscut at the bottom of the shaft and there Is 12 feet
of good ore. The average assays are
$10 per ton.
The mill at the Republic mine is doing better work and more of it than
ever before tn the history of the mine.
The mine is looking better than ever
before. Preparations are being made
to resume work on tunnel No. 4.
There was some cleanup necessary before the actual driving ahead of the
tunnel could be commenced. The
tunnel will tap the ledge at about 800
feet deep. It seems quite probable
that the big 1,000-foot shaft that has
been mentioned heretofore will not be
undertaken for some time. Actual resumption of work on the tunnel has
begun and will be pushed to the utmost.
The Insurgent shaft is down about
40 feet. The bottom of the shaft is In
fine looking quartz. The assays continue to show high values. The last
sample received at the office of the
company ran $330.
The winze on the Lone Pine has
reached a depth of 30 feet. It has
been crosscut and found to be 14 feet
in width. The average assay of the
14 feet ls $36 to the ton.
The last contract on the Monroe has
been finished, and the superintendent
is awaiting instructions to let another.

Throughout the Slocan the trails
and wagon roads are rapidly breaking
up. In bu* few cases ito is possible to
employ animals. For this reason the
Whitewater has been forced to temporarily discontinue shipments.
The Slocan Star has a force of men
putting the mill in shape to resume operations anout the 20th.
The Slocan Siar started its concentrator last week.
Work on the Turrls group, on Goat
mountain, back of New Denver, has
commenced,    several    men being em-
ployad.       They  hare  a  good  ledge  to
commence   on,   containing very high
grade ore.
The ore shipments over the Kaslo k
Slocan ior the week ending April 20th
amounted to 545 tons, being made by
the following mines: Payne, 313 tons;
Last Chance, 80 tons; Rambler, 41
tons; Whitewater, 96 tons; and Jackson, 15 tons.
The No. 2 tunnel of the Mascott, at
Rossland. is in 630 feet. There is no
Important change In the ground. Tbe
winze is now down 80 feet on the hanging wall, and there is a showing of
three feet of solid ore In the bottom.
On the Rathmullen group, in the
Boundary, development work at present Is confined to the Maple Leaf claim.
The shaft is down 66 feet.
Work on the Ellse, near Ymlr, will
be continued on tbe drift along the
hanging wall which is in 65 feet. The
shaft and the tunnel have been connected at the 125-foot level.
Union group, situated on Wildemere
mountain, B. C- a large copper proposition, will commence development
work about April 20th.
The first shipment of ore from the
Slocan Star that has been made ln
many months was sent out last week,
and consisted of six carloads. This
ore was taken out ln the course of recent development. It is now thought
possible to start the mill on the 25th
Another strike has been made in No.
4 tunnel of the Payne.
At the Tamarac, In Ymir, drifting is
being continued on the 200-foot level.
The Whitewater is now working 130
men, with a contemplated Increase In
the force.
The assays from samples taken from
the new ledge of the Great Western, at
Ymlr, returned $12.30 and $20.

Chicago, April 24.—Definite information
reaclied Chicago that the contracts had
been signed in London on Friday which
formally transferred to a single organization practically all of lhe large producing
copper mines in thc United States, The
details \i ere meager, and came through the
brokers who hud handled minor parte o£
tl.e deal in this city. It is understood
that the mines under contract produced
about 425,000,000 pounds fine of the toml
output of 583,000,000 pounds fine that
Were mined in this country last year.
These mines, it is claimed, will produce
fully 47.3,000,000 pounds fine ot the output of 000,000,000 pounds fine estimated
for J HDD.
According to estimates made directly
after the negotiation for the big producers became public property the actual
vulue of the mining properties taken over
will exceed $400,000,000. The particulars, ho.iever, will prub-bly be made public during the coming week, and thc
forma, life of the company will date from
May 1.

In effect, the organization is an interna tioiiiil irust in copper. The organization will protect the price both in Kurope and America, and give to the coin-
p.my poiier to distribute the output intelligently and economically to the market.-.
where it i* most in demand. It was thc
latter consideration which brought into
the combination some of the interests that
were previously an.ag.nistic. The Rothschilds furnished the funds and made tl.e
stipulations for thc European interests involved, while thc Standard Oil Company
was credited with acting in the same capacity fur the American side. The Rothschild interest had its main leverage in its
holdings on the Isle I loyal, in Lake Superior, known as the Wendigo Copper Company, the stock of whieh concern is nut
listed on any American exchange, and the
Island Royal hi ml Company, limited.
Among the other properties named n yesterday's private cables were the Clark-
lligelow and the Marcus Daly interests in

the Lake Superior region, and the Old Dominion, in Arizona, but it is known that

with his receiving nstrument placed on

by way of the air line from the Tribune
building two blinks away. It meant success for his wireless telegraphy experiment
for tliat dstaiu-e, and was a triumph for
the young scientist over condtions which
were exceedingly unfavorable.
The first test of the dsy, when en attempt WAS made to communicate from the
Dearborn station, at l'olk street, to the

SubFeqiicnt invesligalion di.-closed the fact
that locul disturbances at the sending

Here the scenes in the court room were
repeated. As the senator emerged from

"THE pleasant method and beneficial effects of the well-known remedy, SYRrp of Figs, manufactured
by the California Fip Syrup Company, illustrate the value of obtaining the liquid laxative principles
nl plants known to be medicinally laxative and presenting them in the form most refreshing to the taste
and acceptable to the system.    It is the one perfect strengthening laxative,
Its perfect freedom from every objectionable quality and substance, and its acting on the kidneys,
liver and bowels, gently yet promptly, without weakening or irritating them, make it the ideal laxative!
In the process of manufacturing figs are used, as they are pleasant to the taste, but
by a method known to the California Fig Syrup Company only. In order to get its beneficial effects, and
to avoid imitations, please remember the full name of the Company printed on the front of every package.
Consumers of the choicest products of modern commerce purchase at about the same price that others
pay for cheap and worthless imitations. To come into universal demand and to be everyvhere considered
the best of its class, an article must be capable of satisfying the wants and tastes of the best informed
purchasers. The California Fig Syrup Company having met with the highest success in the manufacture
and sale of its excellent liquid laxative remedy, Syrup of Fics, it has become important to all to have a
knowledge of the Company and its product. The California Fig Syrup Company was organized more than
fifteen years ago, for the special purpose of manufacturing"and selling a laxative remedy which would be
more pleasant to the taste and more beneficial in effect than any other known. The great value of the
remedy, as a medicinal agent and of the Company's efforts, is attested by the sale of millions of bottles
annually, and by the high approval of most eminent physicians. As thc true and genuine remedy named
Syrup of Figs is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Company onlv, the knowledge of that fact
will assist in avoiding the worthless imitations manufactured by other parties.

A notice in the last issue of the
B 0. Gazette directs Mining Record rs
not to exercise the powers of Gold
Commissioners, ns under the amendments of the Mineral and Placer Acts
they were civen the power to do.
Thi* notice comes from »he Ministei of
Mines and is appan n ly a hop-f»l
attempt to adjust a previous blunder
of the Legislature. Just what effect
this will have in the Slocan is hard to
say. Here-we have a Gold Commissioner with no salary, who it is
presumed will be forced to resign at
the end of the fiscal year or work for
the pure love of serving the people.
No one appears to know just what imposition will be. This last action of
the Minister of Mines still further
complicates it.

The Bill introduced it. the Hoime of
Cotmnoita l.y McL-nes, of Vuncouv-r,
and entitled "An Act to impose
oeriain restrictions on Iramigrution"
should by all means bo paired at the
present session of Parliament. There
iB need to safe guard Canstlidii citi*-.o!--
ship and keep it on the high piano it
has always held. Without some such
restrictions, as proposed by this bill,
Canada in a short time trill become
the dumping gcound for the dregs of.
European emigration, having already
become the Mecca for a class of
religious fanatics that would be
received by no other country. In our
haste to fill up our boundless prunes
with homesteaders, let us at least
discriminate between the free-born
Briton, the hardy Norse and the
pauper emigration of southern and
eastern Europe. It were better that
our profit b remain wild and teuantless,
a grand heritage for Canadians yet
unborn, than that the standard of
Canadians be lowered, by filling them
with a race that in alien in manner,
speech, thought, and indeed everything
except the  bond of humanity.
