Sue Thousand Un at Work on the Kaslo
1       & Slocan M
MADE RAPID PROGRESS
With   the   Grading.     The   Entire   Line
""���      will be Heady  for the  Tie.   and
Ball* Within Sixty Day..
Mr. Chas. Ffolliptt, the superintendent of the   Kaslo   &   Slocan
Railway, is always ready to  give
information   cheerfully   regarding
the progress of the work on   that
iill-important line.   He stated to
'the Prospector yesterday that the
men employed on the work (including tie and bridge men)  number one thousand; and that while
;no one section of the grade is entirely completed, more than half
of the 30 miles is in shape.   Contractors   McDonnell,   Jim   Welsh
and Pat Welsh, who have the first
:three sections of three miles each
on the Kaslo end of the line, will
each be through with their work
within thirty days,  and   there   is
none of the grading  on   the  line
that will not he finished   within
"60 days.   Steel rails for   the  road
will begin to arrive in  Kaslo   by
the 20th of the present month, and
soon" thereafter a construction train
' will be put on and the road   completed within the time specified ftt
the commencement of building.
HERE AND  THERE.
A Long Wharf,
Porter Bros, have commenced
the construction of a wharf 1,000
feet in length and 24 feet in width
for the Kaslo <fe Slocan railway
company. A large force of men
will be employed on the work as
the wharf is needed1 immediately
to receive the rails for the rbacl.
Bonner's Ferry reports a stampede to the Yahk.
A street-car conductor was accidentally killed in Spokane, Sunday.
Silver Republicans are demand-
ring Cameron of Pennsylvania for
president.
Cyclones have swept the towns
,pf Baxter Springs, Ks., and Winona, Mo. Five persons killed in
jthe former and eleven in the latter,
Three of a Kind.
San Francisco  and  Kaslo  are
,rated the beBt "show towns" on the
.coast.   They are the favorite towns
, of the Addis sisters.   Recently the
papers were full of the courtship
.and marriage of one of the sisters
.and  Lord   Sholto   Douglas;   and
now it appears that the other two
.sisters, now in Kaslo, are making
,conquests  scarcely  less    notable.
In this connection are mentioned
the names of a  very  prominent
politician and wealthy mine owner
.of the state of Washington and of
.a young banker of the same state.
The North Fork Again.
It is known that within two
weeks C. P. R, officials have made
?twb tripB up the North Fork of
���Carpenter creek and that they hold
.options on some mineral claims
ithere. Should they conclude the
purchase and develop the properties an impetus will be given to
mining operations there that will
ibe gratifying to many.
A Youthful Operator.
During Mr. E. C. Pease's absence
in the hills, Phil Hughes has entire charge of the telegraph office.
Phil has been attentive to business
and now has a knowledge ot how
io handle the electric current that
insures him a permanent position
frith the company.
Easy to  Do.
The cheerful manner fn which
Kaslojtes dive their digits down
into their pockets to help out any
public enterprise is proverbial.
This Epirit waP exemplified thuB
again whdn the "property owner?
around one street crossing, Front
and 4th, gave $250 toward the purchase of two lots for the city, to be
used for city purposes.
About the  City Bond..
The Mayor and Council have
had several offers for the $10,000
in bonds of the municipality
voted by the rate-payers, but are
in no hurry to sell them. Not
only are they meeting all current
expenses but it is thought that the
proposed city hall may be built
and paid for without'drawing upon
the proceeds of the proposed bond
sale. 	
Give Credit Where Due.
The provincial government appropriation of $200 for the Kaslo
fire department in '94 had been
allowed, to hjpse. But, seeing the
need of a well-equipped fire department, Mayor John Keen wrote
for both the present year's appropriation of $200 and also for the
$200 which had lapsed, and after
much difficulty succeeded in hav"
ing both amounts placed \o the
city's credit.
Challenge.

I hereby challenge you to run a
100 yard foot race for $100.

Court pf Arbitration.
Messrs. Retallack, Sanders and
Procunier ate the arbitrators selected to determine the value of
about 6 acres of land taken by the
railway for a way-right through
the pre-emption of John Allen.
During the past ten days the arbitrators have held various sittings
during which several witnesses
have been examined. The last
adjournment waB to 4 p. m. tomorrow, Friday.
Gold-Bearing Book.
John Lynch and James Whit-
taker are putting in most of their
time prospecting and with good results. They have just had an assay made of some rock which they
brought in from one of their properties on the Blue Ridge, near the
the old Jardine camp. It contained 9 oz. of silver and $14.60 of
gold to the ton. There is also
about 8 per cent copper. They believe that with a little more development work they will have a
rich gold and copper property.
Tenders for the city hall will be
called for next week.

Business in % Kaslo, while not
rushjng, is good. Merchants have
plenty of business, and hotel men
are. kept busy waiting ,on their
guests.
Kaslo is getting more "solid on
his feet" every day^, In'��� a short

for Kaslo and Slocan people t<>
send to anyone whom they wish to
interest in the country. 20 copies
for $1.00 at the Prospector office.

on the specifications for the McGui-
gan creek bridge. The bridge will-
be 400 feet long and 120 feet high
and will contain half & million
feet of timbers. It will be a five
deck bridge constructed of round
timbers not less than 12 inches at

curve of a standard gauge.
Staking by  Moonlight.
If the territory from Fourmile
creek south proves to be as rich as
it is believed to be, New Denver
and Silverton may yet have several
millionaires! Staking mineral
claims has grown to be almost as
much of a craze there as at Rossland. Several instances are reported where parties have recently
been out staking claims by moonlight, there being only 19 hours bt
the 24 daylight. THE '..riO.7SG.IDft

The British Columbia Iron Works
company has avowed its intention
1 to erect a factory in Kootenay and
give  employment   to   forty  men.
��� For the past three weeks two representatives of the company have
Ween passing forth and back and
forth again through Kootenay, endeavoring to select the most suitable place for the. works, and it is
rumored that they have selected
Nelson. This rumor, though, may
he entirely without foundation,
and it may be that if the citizens
of Kaslo would take an interest in
' the matter of securing this company to locate here sufficient inducements could be offered to pre-
'vail upon it to do so. By locating
here it would be nearer the Slocan
jinines, where most of the machinery made by it will be used. The
completion of the railway  would
" give it excellent facilities for delivering machinery at the mines,
and Kootenay lake affords a means
" of reaching all other parts of   the
" district.
We commend to the editors of
the coast papers an article written
by a coast editor���John P. Young,
editor of the San Francisco Chronicle. The article in question covers
nine pages of the Chronicle of June
30th. The subject treated is" "Bimetallism or Monometallism,"
Even the coast editors who gag
at Coin's Financial School may
take this article of Young's without experiencing a feeling of revulsion and they will feel all the better (and know more) after swallowing and digesting it.
A cable line from Vancouver, B,
C, to New Zealand, a distance of
seven thousand miles, is the greatest enterprise that is now engaging
the attention of the capitalists of
the world. The scientists have
done their part. That such a line
can be laid and successfully operated is not doubted from a scientific point of view. But it requires
money and lots of it���something
like seven million dollars. Do the
gold-hoarders want to unlock that
much at present? Will they do
it? If they do, the earth will be
girdled by the electric current.
A PLAGUE-SPOT AGITATES.
The old, shameless, corrupt and
, detested Tammany Society of New
York City had the extremely bad
, taste to hold a political celebration
. on the 4th of July, a day on which
��� all the people of   the   States   are
wont to assemble as patriotic citi-
. zens of a great nation and not   as
partisan members of political so-
. defies.
One Grover Cleveland,   an   ex-
.hangman and present tool of arch
��� conspirators, and one H. A�� Herbert, an unworthy occupant of   a
��� cabinet position, addressed ill-
timed political letters to the meeting. _^__��_���
COL. KAKEH IN THE SLOCAN.
"The Steamer Alberta called at
10 a. m.f and took me over to
Kaslo, where I spent the Queen's
Birthday, There were over a
thousand people gathered there,
and horse races, regatta and athletic sports were the order of the
���day, and through the well organized arrangements of the Mayor,
Mr. Keen, and his council, all
passed off to everybody's satisfaction. The next morning I left by
the stage for Three ForkB, distant
���80 [25] miles. I much regretted
that I was unable to visit Ains-
irorth, but iny time was limited.
"The following day I started
early for the Slocan Star :mine,
which is about five miles from
Three Forks and two miles from
Sandon [he must have walked!],
which is to be the term-
inusof the Kaslo & Slocan railway. A large amount of development has been done upon this
mine in a systematic and businesslike manner. The vein is capped
with specular iron and iron sul-
phuret for about 100 feet, with
spots of galena here and there. It
is about eight feet in width on the
surface and widens to twenty feet.
The body of solid galena after the
iron capping is passed is a sight to
see, and reminds one of the Arabian nights, as it sparkles and
glitters like a million jewels. Two
thousand five hundred tons of ore
has already been shipped and it
assays very high in silver���up to
170 ounces.
"Four tunnels have been run to
strike the vein. The last struck
the seam at 600 feet [length of tunnel, not depth; vertical depth is
435 feet], where it was even richer
than in the higher tunnels. The
vein runs through blue slate diagonally to the strata. Across the
valley high up the mountain arid
at the point where the Slocan Star
seam shonld touch if it were prolonged, we find the Eureka mine,
of the same general character as
the Slocan Star and probably a
continuation of it. A tramway is
about to be built to connect the
mine with the terminus of the
Kaslo & Slocan railway, and there
is little doubt that the Slocan Star
will prove a noted mine in the
mining history of the world. There
are tens of thousands of tons of ore
already in sight.
"I returned to Three Forks that
afternoon and walked down to the
concentrator which has been built
to treat the ores from the Idaho
and Alamo mines, which are also
extremely rich. The arrangement
of the concentrator is very complete and it has a capacity for
treating 100 tons of crude ore per
day with a total of eight men. Six
thousand tons of ore have already
been taken out of the Idaho group,
and 4,500 tons have been passed
through the concentrator. A tramway between the mines and the
concentrator wi}l be completed in
July, when it will recommence
work. The mines are tributary to
the Nakusp railway."

J. W. Livers, M'gr. isiimitmllsts  Pleased,
London, July 6.���The Bimetallic
League is naturally pleased that
|he Marquis of Salisbury is again
Premier, and its members, are preparing for Bome active work at the
approaching election. They are
also greatly pleased at the weighty
character of the signatures which
ihey obtained to the recent memorial, showing that bimetallism had
representative supporters among
the bankers, including eight directors of the Bank of England, in
addition to a number of prominent
members of the industrial classes
, ind labor organizations.
The league is convinced that the
"bankers anti-metallic memorial'
was inspired by Sir William Vernon Harcourt, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, being forced
to support the bimetallic resolution
in the House of Commons when he
,caw the possibility of having to
���a ppoint delegates to a conference.
The league explains the absence
,of Mr. Balfour's signature by saying that he and Henry Chaplin
;thought it discourteous to sign a
memorial addressed to the leader
,nf the House of Commons when
jthey were leading his opponents.
More Capital Needed.
The cold facts appear to be that
Itossland is the center of the first
.'serious attempt to develop a por-
I ion of a great mineral belt now
well known and recognized as ex-
lending for a hundred miles at least
through the southern portion of
It. C. That British Columbia "has
not begun to be properly prospected" is the verdict of the men
who have done most prospecting
here, and there can be no doubt
t hat even less capital so far has
been   expended    in    development

than energy in prospecting. Slocan has been lucky in securing a
large portion of the capital bo far
spent. Rossland is having the
next turn, and, like her predecessor
she is proving daily how she can
repay all the energy and money
which has been spent upon her,
but neither she nor the Slocan has
a tithe of the capital required to do
justice to their mineral deposits
or to enable men to reap the harvests which they offer. It is still
the day of small things in both
camps and there is still an enormous amount to be done in each
of them. The big men are . really
hardly in yet. Too many of the
buyers are still middle men; gentlemen who come in with a blast
of trumpets to bond properties in
the hope of selling them again to
real capitalists who can work
them. If they sell and sell to men
who mean mining it is all right.
Too often they only tie up properties and retard the development of

This space Engaged for the
KASLO-Kootenay Land Company, County Court.
A short session of the County
Oourt was held at Kaslo, beginning
lhe 2nd and ending the 3rd inst.
tjudge Spinks, who presided, confirmed the favorable impressions
, made by him when he was here
before. He is without doubt the
most popular judge in British
Columbia.
About all of the first day was
taken up in the hearing of the
Wright vs, Giegerich case, which,
after going over the books carefully, the judge decided in a manner highly satisfactory to defendant Giegerich.
The second day was devoted to
the hearing of a case entitled Atkins vs. Coy et al, and involving
title to a mineral claim. A jury
'was called and it was for it to determine priority of location of the
Rambler and Cariboo���the only
point to determine in the case.
.Testimony was very conflicting,
and one was reminded of McCau-
ley's description of the Court Bible
as "greasy with perjury."
The only amusing features of
this term of Court was the propensity of the portly lawyer to
make speeches while cross-examining witnesses, and of the slim lawyer to keep the witness' back to
the jury while testifying to anything that might be damaging to
. the said slim lawyer's side of the
case.
The jury returned a verdict in
favor of defendants. The Cariboo
is one of the Dardanelles group
and all the partners in that group
were present and watching the proceedings w^th exceptional  interest.
Many cases were laid over until
. next term.
Court adjourned to meet at Rossland on the 9th inst.
Feeds Her Too Well.
Three times the Clevelands have
, wanted a  boy.   Three   times   the
fates have given them a girl.   Now,
girls may be just as valuable,   or
"more valuable than boys, but when
parents make up their minds that
it should be a boy and it persists
in being a girl, there is apt to bo a
disappointment.    This brings up
the   question   of  controlling    the
. sexes, a question too great   to   be
more than touched   upon   in   the
brief space of a newspaper column
and dismissed with the observation
that  the   nearest   scientists   have
.come to prescribing any effective
means of controlling the sex   has
'. to do with the use of food, and is
that where mothers are well fed on
. nutritious and assimmilative food
a majority of the offspring will be
girls and where poorly fed or not
��� in physical condition to  properly
gather   the    fullest    amount    of
j strength attainable from  food the
, offspring is most likely to be boys.

For the benefit of those who
think that Bonner's Ferry has the
queerest people in the'wotld, we
quote the following from the Cceur
d'Alene Press, which we tjiink entitles the Press man's town to the
banner; "Edward Gillet was
locked up by Constable Bechtel
last Saturday for several hours for
being engaged in the disreputable
practice of 'peeping.' He was discovered under the sidewalk in front
of Miller's drug store. This is his
second offense, and the next time
he will be dealt with more se-
verely'."���-Kootenai Herald.
