The blockade of ore and concentrates at the concentrator spur is
getting to be a serious matter. The
company has enlarged the platform and still there is not sufficient
room. When several cars of
freight which are expected arrive,
there is no place to unload it.
Congratulations.
, The Duluth, Minn., Evening
Herald, of Feb. 9, says: "The engagement of William J., Bettingen
and Miss Mary C. McFerran is announced: Miss McFerran is a
daughter of Robert McFerran, the
well known mining ihan. Mr.
Bettingen is a member of the firm
of Ryan, McKeown & Co., grain
dealers, arid is a board Of trade
member.''
To which we may add that Major McFerran, father of the prospective bride, is one of the fortunate mining men of the Slocan and
ttianager for the Slocan, Store Co.,
Ltd., at the concentrator.
An Ore   Blockade.
During the present month, since
the Naku8p-Slocan railway has
been blocked, over 1,000 tons of ore
has accumulated in the warehouses
at Three Forks. Unless this ore
can be moved in the next 10 days,
some of the mines will have to
close down everything except development Work, as the owners
have no additional store room.
Should anyone doubt the necessity fur another railway into the
Slocan, let them visit the producing mines and the different warehouses and platforms.
Welpotba Visitor*.
A. E. Humphrey, accompanied
by Frank Cox, arrived from Duluth yesterday. They were met at
Nelson by Capt. N. D. Moore. Immediately after arrival they proceed to the concentrator and today
have been visiting the Idaho, Alamo and Cumberland niines. Mr.
Humphrey is president of the Alamo Mining Co. and Slocan Milling Co. and is also connected with
the Minnesota Silver Co. owning
the Ivanhoe and Elgin mines. Mr.
Cox is the secretary and treasurer
of all these incorporations. Mr.
Humphrey is well satisfied With
the condition of his numerous affairs and endorses the actions of
his lieutenants.
These gentlemen will remain
some time and doubtless will have
Some valuable information for the

Foley Brothers & Guthrie of St.
Paul, Minnesota, have^ the com
tract to build the Kaslo-Sloc.ah
railway from the town, of Kasloj
on Kootenay lake, to the mouth of
Sandon, op the Bouth branch
of C&rpeht^. creek. The charter
for this Hne,.expire8 on September
1, next, therefore, the fyirk must be
completed by that datJ}. .Briefly,
the history of this railway company is as follows: AleXiiPwen,
D. J. Munn and John Hendryi of
New Westminster, B. C, obtained
the charter early in 1892. Except
for some preliminary survey work,
nothing was done that year. In
1893, the charter holders obtained
a grantjirom- the .provincial government <if unoccupied and non-
mineral lands in alternate blocks
fronting on their right of way six
miles. The spring of 1894, the
charter was amended so as to
change the gauge from broad to
narrow, and the land grant altered so the company could select
60,000 actes of land elsewhere in
West Kootenay district. During
1893 and the spring of 1894, nearly
all the right of way of the proposed
line was cleared and a number of
bridge approaches on Kaslo river
were put in. Those familiar with
the route claim it will be an easy
road to build and the entire line, of
about 30 miles can be completed
in the time specified in the charter.

"What an Opportunity."
These words were once addressed
to the Rev. DeWitt Talmage with
startling emphasis. They now
ring out to us. As we have opportunity we use it.
We make this declaration: Holden's Pharmacy stands on a solid
foundation. We have no idea of
sliding down the hillside or gliding
at early morn up mid-street in
tow by a cayuse. No melting
snow, wind nor tide, revival nor
depression in trade Will move us.
By one fork is supplied to the
mouth that which is needful and
necessary for the inner man, to
stay his hunger. The Pharmacy,
however, has 3 Forks to aid it in
supplying the needful and necessity for the healing and curing of
the sick.
At the Pharmacy are remedies

J. K. Reid, of 18 Hospital Btreet,
Montreal, has had published by
the British America Bank Note Co.
5,000 copies of a bird's eye view
map of the Slocan from Kaslo to
New Denver, showing every prominent claim and feature of importance in the district. The compilation of the map is the work of the
well known civil engineer, Mr. C.
E. Perry, and was done by him
last year, consequently is practically lip to date. The map is
stone lithograph 24x48 inches and
is printed in 6" colors. It is Mr.
Reid's intention to distribute them
extensively in England and place
one in every good hotel, from. Halifax to Victoria in the Dominion of
Canada.
Mr. Reid is anxious to secure
copies of Mr Kemp's recent report
of the mineral resources of tlie Slocan to distribute with this map. A
better opportunity to disseminate
information about the district was
never offered, iiid should at once
be taken advantage of. But it is
the duty of those whose interests
Would be the more subserved to
procure and forward to Mr. Reid
iieveral thousand copies of the -report. The publisher or compiler
of the information cannot afford to
do it.

Dr. Walkem,of Nanamio, aimed
a hard blow at the Slocan when he
introduced his alien clause to be
incorporated into the Mineral Act.
Happily, hoWever, the injury w;ls
averted by the prompt action of
the committee.
There is a lesson to be learned
from this action and that is: the
people slum hi be wide awake in the
future and ever on the alert to prevent legislation damaging to the
particular section in which they
reside. No one doubts the right of
the provincial parliament to compel pert- his to declare their intentions to become British subjects before locating mineral claims, but
the wisdom of such an act cannot
be seen by those inquiring into   it.
It is not necessary to repeat the
old, old story of Americans and
other aliens opening up this country, as that is not the subject under discussion.
The Slocan, like any new sec-
lion, requires capital to develop its
latent resource.'-. Capital is necessarily' shy, and will take no
chances in a country where there
is the fear of adverse legislation.
If we cannot hold out inducements
for 'capital "to locale with us, it will
naturally seek other.fields of investment, and it is far easier to attract and hold money if we can
impress upon its-owners thai, the
voters will pjedge themselves' that
it will be protected from unwise interference bv our parliamentary
members. Had Dr. Walkem's
blow fallen noun the poor pr<>8-
peetor, and forced an exodus of his
class, would not the capitalist,
were he an alien, have cause for
hesitancy before he invested in our
mines.
We dn not desire to sound the
tocsin of alarm, but we believe in
being vigilant in BUcii grave matters.
The Slocanites motto:
"We Never Sleep."
The Special number of the Slogan Prospector, which will be issued next week, should he circulated wherever the English language is read. It will no doubt
attract considerable attention
toward the district.
The mine owners and   others   of
the Slocan are to be   congratulated '
on account of the certainty of hav- j
ing a competitive railway within  a I
few months.    It appears as though
the last vestage of  doubt concerning the completion of the Kaslo-Slo-
can  road  (his  fall   has   been   removed.  ...

When E. H. Tomlinson started
for Florida to spend the winter, he
left the Last Cliaiice claim on Noble Five hill as a promising prospect. Part of the time 3 men, and
mostly only 2, have made quite ' a
change. Four cars of ore, averaging 183 ounces silver per ton audi
70 per cent lead, have been shipped
and about 2 cars of carbonates are!
on the dump. This ore was extracted in sinking a prospect shaft
following down the ore chute us it

or drifting has been done.

Many persons are at a loss to
know how J. Frank Cutler's mine
capie to be called by such a disagreeable name as the  "Deiulman."
| In May, 1892, when J. M. Harris
and S." M. Wharton located the
claim, Harris, who was going to
write the location notice, asked
Wharton to suggest a name.
That day the body of Tonkin,  woo
! was killed by lightning above the
Freddy Lee mine, had '.been
broughj down to Cody Creek for
burial. The fact of a corpse being
near their camp was in  Mr. Whar-
I ton's mind, so he answered, ''Oh,
call it the Deadman." Thus what
is becoming, under development,
a valuable property secured its
name,,and a cognomen which will
probably always stick to the live
manager, Mr. Cutler.

The section of the amended mining act regard hi"; Btirtace1 rights to

owner of a mineral claim shall be
entitled to all surface . rights, including the use of all timber
thereon, for mining or building
purposes, bo long as he holds the
said claim for the purpose of developing the minerals contained
therein, but no longer."
The abovb'.-v should be plain
enough for anyong to understand.
A. claim owner is entitled to surface
rights and timber, provided he proposes to develop his claim until it

A GREAT SCHEME.
How   a   Concentrator  Employe   Fnnnd
a   Source  of Wealth   and
lost It.
Among the employes of the concentrator below town is a man of
large proportions and a whole lot
<of sabe.
llad not his system of acquiring
Wealth in a very peculiar manner
been discovered by the management, the world or the company
Would have been none the wiser.
The stern facts of the case are as
follows:   This particular workman
while attending to his duties since
the mill started up   noticed   there
was quite a quantity of native silver, brittle silver and grey   copper
in the concentrates  produced.    In
^oinp; from one part of  the   works
to   another   be   Would    naturally
become quite weary on account   of
his weight.   He' got in the habit of
sitting down to rest ori   the   boxes
ttiid bins   containing   the  concentrated   ore.- Finally   he 'became
aware that the heft of the   seat  of
his trousers was increasing day by
day.   Investigation   showed   that
he    was     rapidly    accumulating
wealth by reason of the native silver and richest ore adhering to the
base of his niacinawiii  or1  ori   the
<same principle that  metallic  particles of gold or silver will cling  to
ii blanket or a Frue vanner.   Being a man of   Strict   probity,   his
first   thought   was "to   turn   this
, over, to the company;   hut;   after
having an assay   made,'   he  eased
his conscience by   concluding that
the metal and ore which clung to
an, employe's garments   should   be
iiris ' perquisite.   He   removed   the
seat from his trousers, took it to   a
local assayer and had   an   asiSay
made.   Imagine his  surprise  and
l'1   i
joy when he got the retur.nti and
found the result was 20,000 ounces
of silver to the ton. By this time
his second pair of. trousers were
heavily charged, at the base, with
silver content?; on cutting out!
the seat this time be burned the
cloth and weighed the residue
which was an even 5 pounds. This
set him to figureing: 20,000 ounces
per ton value,;,five pounds a week,
it would require 400 weeks to accumulate a ton. should the price
of silver not decline, nor the concentrates grow poorer, at the end
of 74 years he would have made,
by sitting down to rest, the sum of
$12,000 in addition to his wages.
The supply of trousers hud , to be
kept up, however, and thin led to
the discovery of his scheme. Being a very large man, hip trousers
were an odd size, and had to be
