PEICE TEN CENTS,
HOLIDAYS,

3of Buy Were Spent in tie Towns of the
Slocan,  A Chin of
FESTIVE DAYS AND NIGHTS.
A   CbrUtina*   Tree,   an    Entertainment,
Three Bulla,   Three   Suppers,   a
VTti/utOK, �� ('hivKrl; ii   Juin-
beree   and   a   Wrestling
Match.
Christmas is the most joyous
season of the year. Its celebration
in the Slocan began very appropriately by the unveiling of
A CHRISTMAS   TREE
In the Methodist, church in New-
Denver. It proved to lie a verv
fruitful tree, and Oapt. E'stabrooks
in the guise of Santa Claus, assisted
by Mrs. Melnnes, made many
.children happy. It was the first
^Christmas tree in the Slocan, and
it was prophesied by Rev. Caebei
ito "be 'he beginning of mdnj
pleasurable occasion's." Whether
the prophesy Referred to immedi-
ately BUocefiding events or to the
Christmases that arc to follow with
the pacing of the years, it was
doubtless true.
THE   NKW IIAIJ.
In which the entertainment, which
was  announced  for   8   y.   m.   on
Christmas eve, was held is   worthy
TataufctC. Ujh 2k !i^80. \
, erected by Ebn nnon   Jfc    dun:   its,
And on the'vi ning in question had
been hftrideomely decorated by the
ladies. No town can he complete
without such a hall where assemblages may le held.
The. untiring efforts of Mrs. Gil!
and   Mrs.   lioyt   were    assurance
.enough that the entertainment
Would be a success.
The attendance from Three
Forks, Sandon and the mines, especially the Slocan Star, was large.
The new sled r, ad   gave   the   up-
, creek people a line opportunity to
combine the   two   pleasures   of   a
. sleigh ride and a trip to New Denver.    Capt. aid Mrs    Moore,   Mr,
.Owens and   Mr.   Vallance   of   tin
.concentrator unproved the opportunity of seeing how a Christmas
is   celebrated   a   thousand     miles
i away from a city.
THE K.NTKUTAINMEKT.
Our reccollection of the entertainment is somewhat confused.
We were intoxicated at the time
(with the music, of course) and a
thousand and one sights and incidents have since played upon the
nerve cords that convey impressions to the organ of memory.
We remember, however, that Mr.
Bogle presided; that Bolander was
there with Dutch impersonations
.and his comic songs which are always received with applause; that
both the vocal and instrumental
music by Miss Fstabrooke, Mrs.
: Shannon and Messrs. Brindle and
Squire were pleasing to the audience; that the song of the Scotch
laddie and lassie W. Thomlinson
and Mrs. Shannon���was pathetic
and pretty; that the duet by the
Misses Scott was a pleasing surprise; that Mr. Snutheringale won
laurels, and that he and Mr. Lancaster, who won uproarious applause, will be in demand in the
Slocan whenever there is to be an
entertainment by local talent.
THE   BALL.
The grand march was led by Mr.
McLean and Mrs. Gill and was
participated in by about forty
couples. Music was furnished by
Thos. Trenary, Jack Delaney and
Wm. Hill. Many of the ladies
present were handsomely attired
but as our society reporter is out
on a strike, we have to onnit the
details.
After three hours of dancing, a
splendid supper waB sprved in the
long hall on the first floor of the
building. The supper was prepared by E, Shannon, and the
table groaned beneath its load of
cakes, pies, etc.
The receipts at the ball-room
door were over seventy dollars.
The net receipts were donated to
the band, an organization that is
expected to enliven the Slocan on
many future occasions.
CHRISTMAS NIGHT.
The crowds returned to Three
Forks on Christmas day. Many
excellent Christmas dinners were
spread in each town in the Slocan.
Crane & L;owes announce') a
grand opeuiiig of their bote, and
liie dance m their hail was a success. The supper.prepared for the
occasion at the Norquay has never
iieen surpassed in the Siociin.
A WEDDING.
As if purposely planned to prevent a break in the chain of festivities, the first wedding in Three
Forks occurred on the evening of
the 27th, midway between Christ-
io.i.- ami New Year. Yhr tioiitraiv
ing | arties were Mrs. Drytien and
Mr, Terrill, lintfi of the Pacific
hotel. The or1 dating minister was
Kev. tieo. Ii. Mortlen, of Nelson'.
Of course, the first wedding in
the town provi ked a ohivari-r-and
such a chivaii���stra- gers stopping
in town wen- frightened auc| will
remember it for years.
Whether it was Hie noise, the
whisuey or Ihe J i in and Jerry, it
is certain the crowd got hilarious
and a bloody scrapping match occurred before i. oriiing.
THK "Wid'M'UNG MATCH,
Three Forftg was thronged with
i eoj;le on tin- nay [.receeding the
.New Year, but the only amuseme
which piecieoio ihe bail wjih h
Wiestling n.nail which had lieei
arranged by the sporting fraternity
to take place jit Crane iV Lowes'
hall, between ) iiCker James Brown
and hiacKriniih Frank Le),ert. A
referee was obtained in the person
of W. D. Thorn, son. Angus Mcln-
tyie and Deiidn.an Cutler acted at
seconds to Brown ami Lej ert. The
match was for twenty dollars a
side, and the rule was "catch as
catch can," best three in five.
Hrown easily won the first two
ialit, but the third was won by
Leperi. The fourth decided the
match in Brown's favor, and he
danced over his prostrate foe.
An impromptu match soon followed, between Angus Mclntyre
and Jack Madigan. The crowd
followed them upstairs and cheered
lustily when Mclntyre was made
to see more stars than he could
count in a month.
AT THE   BOWEN HOUSE.
It was at the Ruwen House that
the youth and leauty of the Slocan
assembled New Year's eve to dance
the old year ��ut and the new year
in. The attendance from New
Denver was notably large and emphasizes tlv feeling of fellowship
existing be'ween the towns. Some
came from Silverton, and many
from the .niaes. A picnic lunch
was spread in the kitchen, to which
the thronj did ample justice between the hours of 11 p. m. and 2
a. i.n.
Thus emed the long to be remembered loliday season.

[building, lis height from the top
\ to i he gri und is 4o ft., the bottom
Of the bin liekig 20 ft. from the
!ground, the bin 15 ft. deep, and
the remaining ten feet above this
is occupied by a roadway from
which the ore is unloadnd into the
bin. A liridge connects this upper
story of the ore shed with the road
on the hillside and the ore is
brought over it into the shed and
put into the bin as fast as it is
hauled down the hill. Next season
it will come from the mines direct
over a cable tramway. The bin is
capable of holding 2,000 tons of
ore. There are five compartments,
for the use of different mines. In
building it 70,000 ft. of lumber
were used, making a total of 295,-
000 ft. in the two buildings.
THE  PROCESS.
The ore is first rudely aroused
from its resting places in the Idaho
and Twin Lakes basins, where it
has lain undisturbed for centuries,
brought out to daylight through
the Idaho and Alamo tunnels and
shafts, loaded onto sleds and  giver
further imprest* nnon it that it haf
"truck a ciVili.iwd country. Fron
here 'he ore sinks into fl pit n'WMVf
six feel; to "cntch the el"vutor" fo]
the top story, where n conical
screen proceeds to examine it. Tin
portion that nasses is allowed t
nroceed. vhile what is ti ctarst
;s filmed back for a second Course
in the criiFhirg department, thii-
tiii e to a second set if r> 1 s which
is gauged for fine wi r1 . Thenct
it is re-elevaied, re-screened, and
any that is still too course is re-
ground. Then it follows what has
already passed the first screen and
is i ut successively through thret
screens, and then into three jigs.
In these jigs most of the concentrates, are obtained, the ore being
agitated by a plunger in bach compartment, aim Ihe he;fv portion
(the galena.) settling to the bottom
where it is drawn out while the
lighter or waste matter is carried
of at the toj. If any is snll found
to need grinding it is referred to
a Huntington mill, after which
it passes into a set of two jigs
where more concentrates nre secured. Then, of what is still
mixed, the finest is passed into a
large settling tank for final separation, and the coarser is put onto
four duuhle-deek revolving tables
where the process is finished.
The operation is automatic
j throughout, the ore not being
i touched by mind from the time it
is dumped into the ore bin till it
is concentrated ready for shipment.
POWER.
The power for operating the machinery of the concentrator is to be
furnished by a Pel ton wheel, using
water from Howson creek. The
water pipe running up the creek is
1400 ft. long, securing a head of
230 ft., making it capable of giving
about 100 horse power.

We want every American, every
Canadian and every Englishman
Io put the blame for the low price
of silver, and for the worldwide
industrial depression, right where
it belongs, viz; with those governments which oppose bimetalism,
PEMQARRIERI
SHOEMAKER
We have had little or nothing to
say about the proposed school of
mines, because we think it of little
consequence. It may put gome
Victoria kids into the way of making some money in some subsequent decade, but it will not aid
in developing the country..
���WHERE IS   I.OKD  KOSKBKRKY?
To those who look the silver
question fair in the face it is apparent that himetalisni if obtained
at all will be granted for a. very
different reason than to, enhance
the value of silver.
The remark which we spmetimes
hear, that if silver would go down
to some ridiculously low figure,
say 25 cents an ounce, then the
governments would have to do
something for it. is simple and
puerile. Governments will d<
nothing lor silver as silver even if
it went to two cents an ounce, an;
more than it would for potatoes or
hay or iron or gold.
Governments may legislate for
the special purpose of increasing
the value of some product but it ie
not one of the leading purposes of
governments U> do so, and is seldom done by a government unless
the product in question is then
produced in larger quantities than
in other portions of the world and
forms an important article of export.
Is silver needed for a circulating
medium? Is silver needed as n
money <>f redemption? Is bimetalism better for the world than
monometalism? Upon the solution of thetre questions depends the
future market value of silver.
The rejection of silver as a money
of redemption produced a worldwide depression in business aim
the destruction of innumerable
small fortunes.
In the United States, Mexico and
the South""American countries the
sentiment in favor of binietalisn
i6 universal.
In the United States there is a
division of opinion as to whethei
that country should act independently of other nations in tin-
matter, but on the main question
of bimetalism there is practically
no division; and at the last international conference the representatives of the United States, in common with those of all other countries except England and Germany, favored bimetalism.
If Lord Roseberry and his cabinet could be induced to favor bi-
D. 'alisin, another international
conference would be held and he-
iuic three months bimetalism
would be provided for by legislation in every nation on earth,
prosperity would be everywhere
present, and incidentally the value
of silver would be restored to what
it was before the depression.
Is it not time that the colonies
were moving in the matter?

ON
To the observer who has  visited
Kaslo at frequent intervals in   the
days of her greatness and   in   the
days of her reverses, one   thing   is
noticeable. It is that the pendulum which swung from prosperity
to adversity   has   now  begun   to
swing   back   again.   There  is    a
better feeling in Kaslo. The increase in business is slight   but   it
is most decided, and there is   rear
aonable grounds for   hope   that   it
will keep right on increasing. During the past year there have been
many removals   from   Kaslo,   but
there will be few if any   more.   It
looks as though from this time on
every business man in  Kaslo will
do a fair and profitable business at
his old stand.
Here are some of the conditions
which favor and contribute   to   a
return of prosperity in'Kaslo:
1st.   There are a number of good
mines on the Kootenay side of the
divide, and more are being discovered and opened up every year,
which are directly tributary to
Kaslo.
2nd. Owing to the uncertainties
vwhich prevail on what is known as
-the Kevelstoke route, a portion of
the shipping from Three Forks,
Sandon and Cody creek is by way
,of Kaslo.
3rd. A large proportion of the
mines in the Slocan are owned in
the states, which keeps up a continuous line of travel between the
Slocan and Spokane and other
points in the states, Kaslo is on
the favorite route of these American
travel lets,
4th.    The results of the past two
or three months has  demonstrated
that there is a considerable amount
of gold  in  the   placer   mines   on
Kaslo creek.   There is perhaps not
so much as  in  the   Yukon,   Cool-
gardie or other far away places, hut
enough  to   interest   at   least   one
hundred miners   next   spring.    It
would be difficult to estimate   the j
number of  prospectors   who   will
search along the the tributaries   of |
Kaslo creek for the ledges   whence I
.comes the gold.
5th. A railroad will be built!
���from Kaslo up Kaslo creek to the1
mines. Whether it will be built;
this year or not is an open ques- i
tion, but there are those who re-,
gard it as very significant that the      A ^V numher ^ ^

may   be   quite   surprising.     But'
Mayor Kane received a letter
from Capt. Fitzstubbs indicating
that Plunkett will be sent back to
the Kaslo authorities.
At the council meeting last Friday a resolution, prepared by
Mayor Kane, was passed by the
council calling upon the provincial
government to make sundry appropriations that are justly due to
Kaslo.

spacious dining room of the Slocan

danced to music furnished by the
Nelson Orchestra. The brethren
of the mystic craft made a fine
appearance, though they were not
in the full regalia of their order.
An elaborate, supper was served at
the Adams House, at midnight.
Rev. Hunter was present and invoked a blessing at the banquet.
To one not fully versed   in   the
customs of the   mining   section   a
handbill   distributed   during    the
holidays was rather   startling,
read:

Then followed the program and
some advertisements which the
zealous promoters had secured to
offset the expense of having the
bills and program printed. One
advertisement, of a noted hotel,
read:

were Miss Flora J. Goodwin and
Samuel II. Green.
The marriage ceremony was conducted by Rev. C. Carroll at the

Capt. Adams and W. II. Brandon have hot yet secured undisputed possession of the Bon Ton

the issuance of the Crown grant
has been withheld to await the result of an action brought by C. W.
McAnn on behalf of P. A. McPhee,

record and allege fraud and perjury
in the securing of the certificate of

the most important yet brought in
the district, as the ground is supposed to be rich in mineral wealth.
