OSPECTOR.
701. JUNO 25,
THREE FORKS, BRITISH COLUUSIA, FRIDAY, JANUARY I!, 1835,
PRICE TEN CENTS,
SLOCAN LEADS
Ihe Record Broken. Largest Shipments of
Ore Ever Made is British Colpliu,
FIFTY-FOUR    CARS   LOADED
In Two Weeks.     810   Tons   Having   an
Aggregate Value of Over 8100,000.
Tht, Output Continues! and
Will Increase.
Large shipments of ore have
.been the rule ever since the tra,ck
of the Nakusp & Slocan railway
was laid into the Slocan, but since
*'��� the fall of snow which has facilitated rawhiding and sledding the
amount of ore that has been
brought to the Three Forks depot
and concentrator spur, loaded on
cars and shipped, has broken all
previous records of ore shipments
in British Columbia, and entitles
this mining district to the name of
the Treasure Vault of the Province.
During the two weeks included
between December 26 and January
8 fifty-four cars were loaded with
pre at the Three Forks depot and
at the concentrator spur one mile
below, and sent on their way
through Nakusp and Revelstoke to
the smelters.
The ore was from different mines
as follows:
Idaho 25 cars,
Slocan Star 14 care,
Cumberland 7 cars,
Reco 3 cars,
Noble Five 2 cars,
Last Chance 2 cars,
Ivanhoe 1   car,
Total    ...    54 cars.
The amount loaded on each car
is 15 tons, making a total of 810
tons,
To these shipments from Three
Forks should be added about 200
tons from the Payne, Blue Bird,
Surprise, Goodenough and Dar-
dardanelles which have gone out
by way of Kaslo, making the entire shipments from the Slocan
district during the two weeks commencing Dec, 26th and ending Jan,
8th over one thousand tons and
worth $125,000.00.
None of the ore shipped will go
Jess than 100 oz. in silver, while
that from the Reco, Goodenough
and Dardanelles is so very high
that it will bring the general average of the thousand tons up to 125
. oz. of silver per ton, which together
with an average of 75 per cent lead
brings the value to $125,000.00.
The record for heavy shipments
is broken and Slocan leads as a
producer.	
Snow slides will come during
the next few weeks where they
never came before.
Trail creek ore is worth from $30
to $50 per ton. Slocan ore is
worth from $100 to $300 per ton.
Under the heading "Right from
Kootenay" the Toronto Globe contains a column interview with
Wm. Harrison, late of Ka��lo,
which gives a fair and interesting
account of the mines of this district. The Globe states that Mr.
Harrison has a good collection of
ore specimens which may be Been
at 151 Yonge St., Toronto. The
Torontoans cannot do better than
to follow Mr. Harrison's advice and
invest their money in the rich
mines of the Slocan.
Look out for snow slides.
No boats running between Trail
Creek and Nakusp,
Drummers from Winnipeg and
Spokane have visited Three Forks
this week.
J. A. Ryan, foreman at the
Payne, came down this week for a
few days recreation.'
The only route for travel between
Revelstoke and Spokane is yia
Nakusp, Three Forks and Kaslo.
Swan Peterson, one of the owners
of the Prescott, has brought his
family from the Sound to Silver-
ton,
Insect powders, sebadilla, and
new line of drugs at William's
drug store. *
Mr. L Alexander has leased the
Idaho No. 2 from Dick Shea, and
will go up there next month for a
season's work.
George Stafford, foreman' of the
Ivanhoe, is at Nelson on business
and on his return may go to the
springs for a few days.
Perfumes, soaps and hand mirrors at the drug store. *
The Hill Bros., of Slocan lake,
have been spending a few clays in
town, They have great admiration for and confidence in Three
Forks, and should they conclude to
engage in other business than mam
ufacturing lumber would doubtless
move here. We know of no one
who would be more welcome than
they would be.
Judge Abbs is drawing up a petition to be presented to the government praying for special ap-
uropriatiup of a sum of money sufficient to purchase apparatus to
fight fire. The money so appriated
to be placed at the disposal of the
Fire Wardens. Also, a petition
asking for an appropriation for a
wagon road up the North Fork of
Carpenter creek.

The Tribune Slaps the Slocau In the Face
The Nelson Tribune professed
great love for the Slocan as long
as it could make a dollar, by doing
so, lis attentions, however, were
never acceptable. Having been
repudiated by the Slocan it has
found a newer, and to its way of
thinking, a fairer face. It has
gone daft on trail creek. It now
dishes up its mining reports in
such a way as to give the Slocan
as many slaps as possible.
In the Tribune of January 5,
1895, at the top of the first column
of the first page under the heading
"The MineB and Their Output" appears what purportB to be a list of
the shipments of ore from West
Kootenay from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5,
inclusive. In that list and during
that time the Slocan is credited
with shipping just one car of ore.
As a matter of fact over forty carloads of ore were shipped from
Three Forks and the concentrator
spur during the time covered by
the Tribune's dates. Such a manifestly inexcusable wrong and unreliable statement as that made by
the Tribune never before appeared
in any British Columbia paper.
The Tribune may hoo-doo certain localities, but it cannot injure
in the least the ��� good name and
established fame of the Slocan
mining district,
SNOW SLIDES.
Avalanches, of the Beautiful Come Roll'
ine and  Pushintt
DOWN THE MOUNTAIN SIDES.
Publlo   Roada   Obstructed   aud   Travel
Impeded.      Shoveling Show a
Pleasant Pastime.
Eighteen inches of enow, fell
Wednesday night. On the mountains there could not have been
less than thirty inches. It waB
followed by rain and packed
heavily. All the conditions favored snow slides.
The first avalanche was from
near tlfe Noblq Five mine and
came down the Noble Five gulch.
W. S. Xinney was at the Sovereign
at the time, a few hundred yards
from the gulch and he describes the
roaiingof the rushing pile as it
tore away rocks and trees in its
descent as terrific. A hill of snow,
similar to the one seen there last
year and containing millions of
tons, is now piled up at the mouth
of the gulch.'
A slide has come down on the
opposite side and covered the
wagon road near Cody creek for a
distance of six hundred feet.
The Freddy Lee slide, that kijled
two men two years ago, is down
but it is not known that anyone
was near it when it came.
The road between Three Forks
and Sandon was blocked by snow,
which it required two days to
shovel out.
In the gulch opposite the concentrator a slide came down with
tremendous force and tried to
climb up the bank on the south
side of the creek.
The Idaho wagon road was obstructed in many places, and shoveling succeeded teaming on that
important freight road. A large
slide came oo the route followed by
the slide of two years ago.
The stage which left Three Forks
for Kaslo Thursday morning did
not get farther than Bear Lake.
There the driver encountered a
snow slide, left his sled and returned with the horses to Three
Forks. Friday morning he took
out some shovelers to dig out his
sled,    He can get no farther today.
Several slides are down between
McDonalds and Sproules and the
stage from Kaslo is not expected
before Monday.
It is reported that a slide has
covered the Eureka mine on Bear
creek, and that Jack McMillan who
was there alone was caught in it
and lost. It cannot be learned today whether the report is true or
not. 	
Work is progressing this week on
the steam laundry building.
David Whitley is down from the
Central, as blithe and merry as a
bird, and ready to take a hand in
the first enterprise that offers.
Mrs. Schroeder is having the
Becker house lined, papered and
furnished throughout and on the
first of next month will open a
first-class boarding house.
Ed Sutton fell down stairs at
Chas. Lundberg's and striking on

which accounts for his having his
head tied up in a handkerchief.

lie Wants   Money.
The Minister of Finance of the
provincial government has had a
bill introduced into the Provincial
Parliament which if passed will
empower the Lieutenant Governor
in Council to issue arid sell the
bonds of the British Columbia government to the amount of ��420,000
or over two million dollars. Just
what it is intended shall be done
with the money if obtained has
not transpired.
At the Pacific.
Notwithstanding the inclement
weather and obstructed roads
which prevented attendance from
a distance, there were many re
sponses to Mr. and Mrs. Terrill's
invitations to attend a ball at the
Pacific Hotel, Thursday evening
Besides Mrs. Terrill's two attractive and accomplished daughters,
the Misses Dryden, there were
present Mrs. Norquay, Mrs. Lawry,
Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Bemis and
two daughters, Mrs. Muir and
other ladies, and any number of
gentlemen. It was voted a very
pleasurable occasion. An elegant
supper was served by Bartlett &
Cronin.
Hum Collapsed.
At ten o'clock Thursday eve
word was passed around town that
Mike McAndrews' burn had broken
down under the heavy snow that
had banked upon the roof, and
that his horses and mules were
heard groaning under debris.
A score of men were soon shoveling away the snow and chopping
the planks loose. In a short time
one horse or mule after another
were dug out until all, five in number, were rescued. All were abie
to get up and walk off, The crowd
then came off up town intending to
return next day and 6ee if Mile
were under the remaining part of
the rubbish.
More Demand for Coal.
The increasing demand for
Washington coal iB leading to
lively prospecting and opening up
of the mines which have been
working on only moderate time
for the past two years, and it is
evident that tbd coal interests of
the state will soon become as
widely known as those of any
other state.
Coal mining in Whatcom county
is no experiment, but there are
new fields being constantly opened
up. The demand for the coal is
increasing and orders from the
navy department for steamer coaling has assumed considerable proportions. Local and outside demand is also on the increase,���Spokane Mining Review.
D. C. Corbin will be in Kaslo
early next week and, if the embargo on travel is raised, may
come through to Three Forks.
A. McComber spent a week in
Spokane and what he didn't see in
that ambitious city it wouldn't be
worth crossing the street to see.
Jack Cress has done one of the finest jobs of papering, at the Bowe*i
House, ever done in the district.
It makes the building look 100 per
cent better.
Woods, the baker, has moved
into his new building near where
Silver street crosses Seaton creek.
He will keep bread, pieB, cakes and
apples for sale.
There is the merit of persistence
in the rumor that a smelter is to
be erected on Arrow lake���probably
at Nakusp���and that the C. P. R.
will own a controling interest in
it.
Harry Stimmel, representing the
S. & N. and N. P, roads, is one of
several travellers who are snowbound here, and will go out over
the Kaslo road as soon as it ia
open.
Byron White has gone out to
Nakusp to see for himself how his
ore is being handled in trie transferring between there and Kevel-
stoke. At the head of Arrow lake
it is transferred to sleds and hauled
13 miles to Wigwam station. It is
there loaded on cars for Revel*
stoke.
One off the first improvements
which the C. P. R needs to make
on the line which it has leased for
twenty-five years is in connection
with the lakeside spur at Wilson
creek. It should be extended into
the water bo that lumber and other
shipping can be loaded direct from
barge to cars.
The Kaslo Budget takes the
Peospectou to task for referring to
New Denver as being "a thousand
miles away from a city." We beg
the Budget's pardon. We know
how sensitive it iB, and how diligent and valorous in protecting the
interests and civic standing of
Kaslo. The "City of Kaslo" must
not be overlooked. Perhaps we
shall have the "City of Vancouver'"
after us next, for it, too, is lesB
than a thousand miles away.

BY  YV.  P,   PRATT.
VlHY <;OLl) IS WITHHELD,
The country has  not   only   witr
nessed and endured   the   demonetization and partial disuse of one-
half of the world's   currency,   but
what is even worse the withdrawal
and hoarding of   the   other   half.
For two years gold has  not  circulated   freely.   It    passes    otyiftly
along   the   veins   but   refuses   to
return through the arteries of commerce.   For two years few if   any
new loans have been  made.     The
reason   given   by   capitalists    for
thus hoarding their gold is the fear
of being repaid in a cheaper metal.
This is not the  real reason.    Contracts, existing laws and the courts
would secure to the capitalist payment "according to the bond." The
real reason why gold   is   withheld
is found in the fact   that   the   demonetization of silver  produces   a
stringency which will not end  until all commodities are reduced one-
half  from   bimetallic   values.    Of
this fact the   capitalists   are   well
aware  and   they   know   too   that
while the process of descending  to
the new basis of values is going on,
not one borrower in a hundred can
make money so as  to   repay   with
interest.    The  current   of   depression carries   all   borrowers   down
stream faster than with their  best
exertions they can row up  stream.
This, and not the fear   of   being
repaid in "cheaper money," is  the
true reason why  millions   of   gold
are hoarded in the bank vaults   of
New York and London.
Happily (since by the inexorable decree of the world's ruler,
Shylock Rothchild, all values, except that of gold, must fall one-
half) we have reached the bottom.
The descent was tragical and
terrible. Ruin has been widespread. The darkest page in the
history of the century has been
written. But we are now on the
lower level and are rapidly adjusting ourselves to .the new order of
things. Tlie country may revive
now, and the people, though not
BO well provided with this world's
goods, may experience a season of
real enjoyment for
"Sweet is pleasure after pain."
SIZES THEM UP   BIGHT.
We think there is altogether too
much of the mule's hind leg business about our contemporary here
and its offspring at New Denver.
No one must say a word iu praise
of any part of this country except
themselves, and if such a word is
said they both begin to work that
hind leg until, if it was only strong
enough, which fortunately it isn't,
they would indeed kick the bottom
out of everything���Nelson   Miner.

Almost everyone is anxiously
inquiring whether "times" are going to be worse 'or better. With
the view of giving the readers of
the Prospector some pointers or.
this all important question, we
have made some clippings from
publications across the boundary
in the states. This camp is so
intimately connected with the
finances of the other side that it
is a well-known fact that whatever
helps there helps here and whatever hurts there hurts here,
They are governing themselves
very badly on the other side. Unpunished criminals of all classes
are bringing the whole government
of the United States into disrepute.
There must be better execution of
the laws which .guarantee protection to, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" or the boasted
and boastful Republic will drift
into a chaotic and mutinous state
not a whit better than that of the
semi-civilized countries of South
America.
The war between China and
Japan may be nearly at a close or
it may be only just commencing.
The Japs may yet learn that the
ways of John Chinaman are peculiar. China is not so anxious for
peace as is pretended, and is trying
to gain time to solidifiy her  army,

A revival of the mining industry
is apparent, The mining world
has gone gold hunting and, with
the best results, Old camps have
taken on new life and new camps
have sprung into existence. Of the
old camps Leadville is probably
the most flourishing. A new silver
mining district is being opened in
Montana. It is known as Lump
district and is not far from Helena.
The ores carry a larger quantity of
silver than is found in other mines
in either Montana or Idaho.
Commercial agencies throughout
the country unite in reporting a
more cneerful outlook to the
financial situation, A general revival of business is expected during
1895. The stringency of the past
few years, culminating in the panic
of 1893, caused the withdrawal oi
money from the usual channels of
trade, prevented investments, shutting the money of the country in
vaults where it has earned and is
earning nothing to its owners.
This state of affairs is far from
satisfactory to rich or poor, capitalist or laborer, and all are anxious to assist in bringing about
better times. The statements of
the national banks, which were
published last week, made a very
satisfactory showing; in fact tin
best of the year. The next tw,
months are expected to be quiet,
but the signs of the times all point
to a general revival of business
next spring.���Spokane Daih

Blast  FurnuccR,   Car  Worku   ami   Siccl
Plant, to Be Erected.
It has been announced that
Seattle will secure one of the best
equipped industrial plants in the
west. For several mouths negotiations have been going on between some of the citizens of that
city and eastern capitalists for the
erection of a mamniotn plant for
blast furnaces, car works ami
steel making; an immense power
will also be developed by Snoqual-
mie falls and the power so generated will be transmitted to the city
where an extensive railway system
will be operated. The stock for
the railway company has been
.subscribed and the bonds taken,
both of which are now being
printed in New York, The capital is also said to bo subscribed
and the money for the work will
soon be forthcoming.
Seattle is to be congratulated for
the good fortune and   there   is   no
��� doubt  but   that   other   important
.enterprises will quickly follow this
one which will require the expenditure of two or three million dollars. The building will cover
about five acres at Salmon bay and
it is hoped to have   everything   in
��� operation before the end of 1895-
Negotiations are also pending for
the erection of a paper pulp plant
at the same point, and it now
looks as if Seattle was to be well
provided with substantial industrial establishments and that the
pay roll of the city would be very
much increased,���Ex.
Saved His Dog,
It is told of Lord Roseberry that,
a number of years ago, while on
board a small steamer going to
Dublin his dog jumped overboard,
���'Stop the steamor!" shouted the
little lord; but the captain replied
that his instructions did not permit
him to stop excepting when a man
fell overboard. "That is easily
arranged" said Lord Koseberry,
and he instantly plunged into the
sea. The captain then stopped the
steamer and the prime minister
and his dog were both rescued.���
