PRICE TEN CENTS.
���jr4.1.0  per lear.������
Rev. C. A. Procunier will next
Sunday [the 23rd] address the people of Ainsworth at 11 a. m., and
the people of Pilot Bay at 7'30 p.m.
The Nelson people are making
extensive preparations for the 1st
of July celebration. They may
expect a large contingent from
Kaslo.
Nelson is all alive this week.
Fully 100 strangers are there, possibly to take in the assizes. Justice Walkem and the Attorney
General are there from the capital.
Jap King has returned from a
trip to the regions round about Ft.
Steele. He made some locations at
the head of Weaver creek and
brought back with him some fine
specimens of gold-bearing rook.
Fitzpatrick & Co.'s barber shop
has a new awning���neat and very
beneficial. Their large new barber
pole will certainly, when finished
and set out in front of the shop,
attract attention. It is tasty and
symetrical in design.
The Idaho Avalanche, published
at Silver City, Idaho, is this week
welcomed to our exchange table.
It is aboVe the average country
newspaper in general apperance
and���one thing we like to see���
sensible in editorials.
Robertson Presbyterian church:
Sunday services at 11 a. m, and
730 p. in,   Topic, evening address:
 "What is Man?"........
Sunday School and Mr. G. 0, Buchanan's bible class at 230 p. m.
All are cordially invited.
fine week from Friday [tomorrow] will be examination and closing day for the Kaslo public
school. The teacher, Miss Kane,
and pupils are preparing a literary
program, interesting and meritous,
for the occasion, and hope to see
many of the parents and the
friends of the school attend.
The so-called "New York" beer,
the Spokane brewery that makes
it, and the saloons selling it, are
"let alone" by laboring men in
Spokane and elsewhere, because
the proprietor persists in buying
his malt from a "scab" malt house
in San Francisco, in preference to
houses employing union labor.
Pabst Bohemia special brew logger beer at the Adams hotel only. *
The population on Nob hill iB
creasing quite rapidly of late. A
good number of residences have
just been erected there, and Mr.
Carney has one nearing -coinple-
. tion, while several others are listed
as among the' probabilities of the
near future. This is the only portion of the city having waterworks,
Kane & Kane's system supplying
it, and the location of the school
house there makes it a very desirable residence site for families with
.children.
Among those families but recently domiciled in Kaslo who will
prove worthy and valuable aquisi-
tions to Kaslo's social circles, we
may mention: Robt. Irving, secretary of the K. & S. R'y, and wife;
Mr. Woolsey, draughtsman of the
same railway, wife and two little
ones; Mr. Long, barber, wife and
three children; Rev. C. A. Procunier, wife and baby; the family of
merchant J. B. Wilson (formerly
here but now just from Spokane);
the wife and children of James
Henderson of the 4th street meat
market.
THE CONCERT.
The first number was an opening chorus, sung by, Mesdames McPhee, Green, Keen, VVright and
Millington, Misses Cameron and
Brown, and Messrs. Whitely, Fawcett, Wright, Smith and C. Moore.
Then followed a reading.pf Mrs.
Caudle's lecture, by Mr. ItfcKer-
acher.
Mrs. S. H. Green sang with Miss
Brown a duet���the beautiful Southern love song, "Juanita." Mrs.
Keen presided at the piano for this
and for all following vocal selections. Her playing was one of the
most truly delightful features of
the entertainment,
A male chorus of. six voices followed this. The gentlemen sing
pretty well, except that their enunciation is rather indistinct, making
the words of the song difficult to
understand.   They were encored.
Number five was a solo, ''Laugh-
ing Eyes," sung by Mrs. McPhee,
with quartette chorus.
Sixth, -instrumental duet, Miss
Brown playing' violin and Miss
Maggie Ediams the piano. Miss
Ediams' performance was excellent
and pleasing throughout; while
Miss Brown gave evidence of some
talent and study on her part.
Rev. C. A. Procunier read a selection, containing very fine poetic
sentiment, entitled, "The Three
Wolves." From an elocutionary
standpoint, his interpretation of
the piece was perfect, his expression very good, but the enunciation was slightly indistinct, rendering a number of the words bard to
recognize readily.
The eighth number was a solo
by Miss Minnie Brown, the Btar of
the evening, and the audience
cheered as she stepped to the platform. The sweet familiar notes
notes of "Suanee River" were what
we heard. The two closing lines
of the first stanza and the last half
of the second were rendered with
especially touching effect. Responding to an encore, she sang,
"The Spider and the Fly."
Ninth, a pianoforte selection by
Mrs. Keen���a treat to all music
lovers present.
A male chorus, Messrs. Allen,
Twiss and Procunier, together with
the gentlemen named as in the
opening chorus.
In another violin and pianoforte
duet the Misses Brown and Ediams
acquitted themselves equally well
as in their first selection.
The "Cradle Song," by Mrs. Mc-
Thee, was next. In response to
encore, she repeated the second
verse, singing it very beautifully
indeed.
Mr. Twiss, in his solo, "King's
Own," pleased the audience so well
that that he had to respond to an
encore.
A French dialect recitation by
Mr. McKeracher delighted the
audience. He was recalled and
read a very amusing selection.
Miss Brown sang another solo,
and then in well chosen words,. in
her own behalf, thanked- the audience for its attendance, and those
who had assisted in the entertainment. There were present 100 persons, and it is the concensus of
opinion that the affair was a suc-
ccess in all particulars. The proceeds were for the benefit of Miss
Minnie Brown to assist her in obtaining a musical eduoation in
Spokane. The best wishes of the
ladies of Kaslo go with her in her
efforts, and they hope her voice
may, after a season of training,
charm audiences elsewhere as it
has here.

Silvbrtc% B. 0., JVne 19,1895.
���I send you good newk and true;
but if your readers are \ike many
hereabouts, my report will fail to
have the effect that such tidings
usually produce upon tht unapa
thetic. |J
There ig gold in apparent, plenty
in the Red Mountains   five\ miles
south of Silverton, \
That there was gold in theWes
of two mineral claims in t\eee
mountains was known over a year
ago. \
In one of these, the Little Daisy,
the gold is free; but very rich specimens, exhibited by the ownerB,
have so far failed to excite any interest in the claim; and they have
been too poor to show their faith
in it by extensive development.
The other claim referred to is the
Las Vegas, owned by Alex Harrison of Kaslo. It is situated fully
half a mile east of the Little Daisy,
and its owner knew several months
ago that ottes on it assayed 80, 50,
65 and 95 | dollars per Jon. The
gold on tliis claim is associated
with "arsenical iron," however,
and no free gold was discovered on
it before this spring,
Besides these two there were perhaps twenty other locations in the
Red Mts.; but, so far as I know,
only one other claim had been
tested for gold, and the highest assay on ores from it was reported
at $6 per ton.
Early this spring while Harrison was sitting in his cabin
at Kaslo, the thought struck him
that there might be and ought to
be free gold on the Las Vegas.
Luckily he had by him a few
pieces of ore that he had brought
down last fall, after finishing assessment work. So he began breaking these and eagerly he looked for
the good money metal.
I need not tell you that he
looked not in vain, for had he I
would not now be writing you.
At that time the snow was at
least ten feet deep over the Las
Vegas, but the discovery made
Harrison restless and he came at
once to Silverton, Here he wearily
waited for the snow to settle to a
depth not over his head and then
he ventured up the dangerous
mountain and brought back a load
of samples.
On this claim there are discovered three distinct veins, parallel
and about thirty feet apart. The
upper vein is solid mispickel ore
about 12 inches thick. The middle vein is about 86 inches thick
and carries quartz with mispickel.
The other is about 18 inches thick,
quartz and less mispickel, the
quartz being of a sparry character.
AU the samples were obtained
from the 18 inch vein, though previous assays had been made  prin-

Exeuralon, Pic-nle and Dance.
Kaslo Lodge A. F. & A. M. has
chartered the Steamer Alberta for
an excursion to Proctor's Grove,
Balfour, where will be held a basket picnic on the anniversary of
the festival of St. John the Bap-
iiste, Monday, June 24th, 1895.
Tickets are $1.50 each and may be
had from iany members of the
committee, The excursion will
leave Kaslo 9 a. m. A dance in
the excellent hall at Balfour is also
on the program, and the best of
musio will be there. No event
ever yet given by the Kaslo Masons has failed to head the list of
the season's, enjoyable entertainments.        '
THE TRIBUNE'S MANIA.
It seems to be the mania and delight of the Nelson Tribune to do
injury to someone. In its issue of
June 8th appeared an article entitled: "The Time Check Fraud,"
in which it was stated as fact that
Foley Bros. & Guthrie were paying
their men in time checks which
could be cashed only under discount at the company's store. The
Tribune certainly must have
known that this was a deliberate
lie, for: 1st, The Prospector has
more than once announced that
June 15th would be the first pay
day; and therefore no payment of
any kind, either checks or money
could have been in the hands of
the men before one week after the
article in the tribune was printed
���unless an advance payment were
made through the courtesy of the
the superintendent. 2nd. The
Prospector has from time to time
given publication to the fact that
Foley Bros. & Guthrie are business
men, transact their business on
business principles and pay cash
100 cents on the dollar for labor.
3rd. An excellent law is now in
force (fathered in the legislature by
Mr. Kelley, M. P. P. north riding
West. Kootenay) which prohibits
the use of time checks in payment
for labor, and no firm would dare,
by a course antagonistic to Kaslo's
business interests, lay itself liable
to the heavy penalties provided hy
that act.
We advise the Tribune to here
after know what the truth is before
permitting such criticisms of business men to appear in its columns.
It should take the example of the
Prospector and accept news from
only reliable sources.
The weakness in style of composition shows that the article was
not written in the Tribune office;
but what malicious, or idiotic and
dyspeptic, agitator in Kaslo could
have reason for or object in writing
and having published such a barefaced and damaging lie, we cannot
imagine. It is damaging both to
the reputation of the company, and
to the business interests and reputation of Kaslo, and certainly can
do no one any good.

AND GENERAL  REPAIRING.
Horse-Shoeing a Specialty.
4th St., Kaslo.
Owing to the absence of. our regular proof-reader, it is quite probable that a number of typographical errors will appear in this issue.
The first of the week, A. E. Humphreys, president of the three Du-
luth-Detroit syndicate companies
operating in the Slocan, accompanied by Wm. H. Yawlcey, son of
W- C. Yawkey who is financing the
syndicate, passed through Kaslo- to
look at the companies' properties ���
in the Slocan. At the same time,
via Robson, the Columbia river,
Nakusp, and the Nakusp & Slocan'
railway, Frank Cox, secretary of
the companies, and W. C. Yawkey
also entered the Slocan district.

IT WAS DEFEATED.
The Railway Exemption By-
Law was defeated by a vote of 32,
against to 31 for it; three-fifths being required to carry it. Thus the.
people of Kaglo have decided the,
question,
We consider the criticism and
abuse heaped upon our Mayor and,
Councilmen in the last two issues
of the Nelson Tribune to be the
height of injustice.
The fabled meeting prior to incorporation is shrouded so deeply
in the mists of the past that scarce,
two legends agree concerning its
actions and intentions. That an
exemption was then voted all
admit, . but what the exemption
was and what the conditions upon
which it was given, were the points
of dispute. It is a matter that
had to be submitted to the people
for final decision; and the sooner
done, the better. In submitting
the matter to the rate-payers the
Council simply did its plain and
unmistakable duty. The Mayor
and Council were not responsible
���for the action of that meeting, but
if a contract was entered into by
the people of the city at that meeting, the Mayor and Council had a
responsibility at least to the extent
of permitting the people to interpret and carry out that contract.
This responsibility they have properly discharged; and the people-
have by their vote said that the
exemption was conditioned upon
the then immediate construction of
the railroad and was intended to
include only land and personal
property used for railroad purposes.

inch
cipally on ore from the   36
���vein.
I made several assays from the
samples brought, and found them
of a  uniform   richness   far   above
���any possible expectations. Had
the gold been silver the ounces of
it per ton in even the lowest assay
would have made it good shipping
ore, though the highest assay was
"only 139,4 ounces   gold   per   ton,
���worth $2881.40.
However, all the samples pulverized into one and thoroughly
mixed gave an assay of 129.6 ozs.
:gold per ton, and a pan test   gave
= about one-fifth the gold as free.
��� The free gold is very fine,1 all of
it going through an 80 mesh sieve,
and I do not expect any free' gold
in this claim   when   much   depth
��� shall have been reached.
; These results were freely reported
here ��� and at New Denver; but
whether seven months of winter
had thickened their blood and no
sassafras tea was available or because they are naturally lymphatic
' and sluggish or for some other reason, still, certain it is that no general excitement nor hardly a ripple
of it was caused by the report.
Only Harrison and a few others
believed it and realized its significance, and they at once spread
'themselves over the ground nearest
the Las Vegas from which snow
had disappeared, and they have
already made several locations on
all of which good gold ore has been
found. Others, too, having old locations in the vicinity, have been
sufficiently stirred up to look after
their stakes and to have a few assays made for gold, with the result
that they almost realize that their
claims are valuable only because
of the gold on them..
I have now made above seventy-
five assays on ores from this district, and I remember-no other instance of a set of prospects covering so much ground and so uniformly showing . gold of aB good
grade as these.
About thirty of these assays
have been made on ore from the
"L. H.," a new location by Harrison. This claim iB situated north
,of the Las Vegas and west of the
Carbonate Hill, and the gold^iear-
ing ledge or vein of it is at least
sixty feet wide, the hanging wall
being of porphyry and the foot
wall of granite.
The first assay from this ledge
.was from float. It contained 8.6
ounces gold per ton, worth $173
We have since sampled twice
across the ledge in sections of from
.3 to 8 feet. On first trial one section
,of 8 feet assayed $37 per ton  and
an adjoining section of three feet
assayed $25, while three other sections of from 5 to 8 ft. assayed
above $15 per ton, eachi
Several tests for concentration
were then made, and these showed
that, concentrating from 4 to 20
per cent, a product asBaying from
$43 to $275 was obtained and that
above 70 per cent of the gold was
paved by the process.
The second sampling gave much
better results. Three adjoining
sections of tlie ledge, 6, 3 and 8 ft.
respectively in width, gave large
samples that assayed $60, $28 and
$125 per ton, in order; thus showing 17 feet of rather high grade ore.
No concentrating tests were made
on this second lot.
Now, if anybody has a better
prospect than this, will he please
let us know? for we 'd be glad to
stake an extension.
And will somebody please inform us why such a showing as
this in a camp that is ' much in
need of something to waVe it up is
received with a stare and a gape?
Being utterly disgusted by the
apathy here manifested we send
you this hoping that it may fall
under the eyes of someone who can
realize what these figures and facts
mean and wijose blood is thin
enough to permit them their due
effect.
For here the claims are and we
are anxious for some one with vim
and money to come and see ��� them,
test them and prove that we have
to no extent misrepresented.
The development of these claims
will give us glorious times in our
camp, and why should' we wait
longer?'
There is gold in plenty here in
shape to yield immense profits, so
tho prospects promise; and let 's
get 'er niovin'.

There is a Vitality about New
Denver���a determination to outlive the long season of depression
and grow into a robust and healthful town���that challenges admiration, just now new buildings are
being erected and business is centering, and from that center there
will be steady expansion.
All, or nearly all, the members
pf the "Duluth syndicate" are now
in the Slocan, with headquarters
at the concentrator. They hold
their annual meetings July let
when their business for the remaining half year will be mapped
out and arranged.
Silvertonites are making extensive preparations for the celebration to be held there on Dominion
Day.
A baseball game will be played
at Nakusp on July 1st, between
the New Denver! and Nakusp
nines.
New Denver baseball players
want to meet a club of Kasloites on
the diamond.
Fred Butler, of Three Forks, fell
dead on the trail leading from his
cabin, last Saturday morning.
Deceased had been ailing for some
time. He was 38 years of age and
W*s well known in the district.
His remains were removed to New
Denver cemetery Sunday after--
noon, where a funeral service was
held.
Six inches of clean 9re was
struck Saturday in the Noo.n.day���
not the Noonday which has figured
in the newspapers for the past two
or three years, but a Noonday on
the galena farm belonging to Duf-
tie, an Irishman, McNickol, a
Scotchman, and Bradley, an Ethiopian.
A good trail has been made from
Silverton across the galena farm
and Eightmile creek to tbe Red
Hits. It was laid out by W. Thom-
linson, on a grade that a fat man
can travel comfortably, B. S.
Brown is the pushing superintendent of the work.
The government appropriation
for a trail up the North Fork hat
been expended���judiciously we
suppose, though we shall know
more about it tomorrow night.
Nunbers of prospectors are scattered through the "greater Slocan,"
and. many locations are being
made on Tenmile and Springer
.creeks.

that they would hot perform it.
Our purpose was simply to encourage them in its performance;
it was so understood by the ladies
and they have by their actionE
shown that they approved our
course.           "
Mayor Keen attended the assizes
at Nelson, Wednesday. ...
Lawyer McAnn mounted on a
fine grey steed is one of the familiar sights now-a-days.
We note that a number of repairs and refittings are being made
in the Idaho Restaurant.
Nakusp, it is reported, has a
little excitement over a $4-gold-
and-40-oz.-silver ledge discovered
just acroBB the lake from the town.
A beer-slinger at the comique
Monday night undertook to do up
the Chinese empire and prevailed
against all portions of it with
which he came in contafct; but
when he undertook to lick the
British empire the next morning
he���was la/nded safely in tb,e. gaol.
Hie trial resulted is a fine of $20
and costs, Another man was fined
$20 for assault and attempt to
break gaol. The law, and the
rights of every person, of whatever

The World man on the wing yas
in Kaslo this week. He is making
a tour of the country again, in the
interest of the Vancouver World.
There is no mountain so high- but
what he gets to the t��p. AQd. there
are few newspaper men even in
Kootenay who have seen xnqte of
the different sections than J. T.
Wilkinson. Therefore, what he
writes can usually be relied on.
Aside from him, we are not aware
of a single newspaper man at the
coast who has any intelligent idea
of the geography of West Kootenay. This can be proven by picking up any issue of the coast papers in which they refer to Kootenay. Some of them da not know
how many papers are printed here,
and what credit is given them is
often misplaced by 30 or 40 miles.
APPLICATION    FOR     LIQUOR    LICENSE
Notice is hereby given that the undersigned
will at the expiration of thirty days apply to
the Stipendiary Magistrate of West Kootenay
district for a license to sell liquor at retail in
his Hotel at Watson.
Dated;  Watson, June 12,1805,

"The Prospector is venturing
upon dangerous ground. It advises the 'ladies of Kaslo,' as to
their social duties and obligations
under certain circumstances. The
'ladies of Kaslo' understand their
duty, and will perform it independently of advice or suggestion."���
Kaslo Correspondent of the Nelson
Tribune.
In view of the Prospector's article which this referB to,
we say unqualifiedly that, we
consider it beneath the dignity of
any gentleman to pen the. above
paragraph. While it says nothing
directly, the insinuation carried is
.deBpicable. As our business rival,
we naturally expect the Tribune
correspondent to rehash our news
columns for his readers and oppose
our views on all questions of public policy; but we certainly are
surprised that he should stoop to
the indignity of casting deliberate
insult to families without a blemish upon their character, families
as good, as refined, as cultured as
any in Kaslo.
We are glad to know, however,
that the Kaslo ladies have taken
kindly to the Prospector's suggestion, and as a result are pleased
with the new acquaintances made
and new friendships formed. We
did not say that the ladies of
Kaslo did not know their duty nor
