Court meets in Kaslo July 5th.
Take in the excursion Monday.
Prospector Nickolson leaves soon
(or the White Gro.use mountains
where there are large deposits of
copper,
Geo. Pettit of Victoria has
opened a store on Front street. He
carries a line of Gents' Furnishing
goods, blankets,.etc.
Attorney-General Ebert and wife
and Gold Commissioner Fitzstubbs
stopped a short time in Kaslo and
departed for Three Forks.
Northport, having attracted the
attention of Eber C. Smith, the
versatile expounder of the Rossland Record, will have another
newspaper.
That splendid old play, Rip Van
Winkle, gives Si Robinson an opportunity for some good acting-
acting that would be creditable to
a more pretentious stage.
Contractor McDonnell has been
.rushing- the work on his division,
.which includes the first three
miles, and will soon have it in
.shape to turn over to the head contractors.
Temple Seeley, 35 years a prospector, has returned from Trail
creek, where he made some good
locations. He staked one claim
joining the famous Le Roi, from
"which he and his partners expect
to realize $15,000.
i. t
When Mrs. Ira Black returned
��o Three Forks from Spokane the
.other day she brought   a   parrot
with her. It speaks English fluently and is making good progress
in the study of the Scandinavian
.and Italian languages.
Sandon has grown some during
-the past few weeks, but its growth
is retarded by the action of the
C. P. R. Co., which runs its survey
along the side of the principal
.street, taking the street and half
the lots, requiring several buildings to be moved off, with no place
but the bed of the creek to move
-,to.
George Henderson, the New Denver hotel, man, is now located in
Kaslo. His partner was recently
married, and it is doubtful .whether
George can much longer escape the
fair sex; especially as he is a favorite among them and his tastes run
to flowers, paintings and everything that is ajBthetic and beautiful.
The pic-nic last Monday, under
the auspices of the Masonic fraternity ,was a great success. All who
attended speak in the highest
terms of the delights of the day,
.and from their enthusiastic descriptions of Proctor's garden and
strawberry patch, at Balfour, we
.conclude that it must be the Eden
.of the province.
Pabst Bohemia special brew logger beer at the Adams hotel only. *
C. E. Perry has done some remarkably good engineering on the
Kaslo & Slocan railway. From
Bear lake to Sandon he secured a
level grade for eight miles around
the mountain side. It is believed
that there is not in Canada another
instance of a level road for that
distance running on two sides of a
mountain, and at so great an elevation above the mountain
itreams.
Divine service. Rev. C. A, Procunier, A. M., will preach at 11 a.
m. and 7:00 p.m. in Jackson hall
(near P.O.) next Sunday.
The city government has selected
three lots (lots 38, 39 and 40 blk. 9)
on A avenue nearly opposite the
Hotel Slocan as a site for the
municipal buildings.
The Miner speaks of a place as
"unmentionable." If there is such
a place it is unknown in the mining camps of West Kootenay whore
all known localities are mentioned
with a freedom that often bespeaks
a close acquaintance.
Robertson Presbyterian church:
Sunday services at 11 a. m. and
7'30 p. m. Topic for the evening:
"National Address' in Honour of
 Dominion  Day."	
Sunday School and Mr. G. O. Buchanan's bible class at 2'30 p. m.
All are cordially invited.
The Miner has made remarks
that hava "given offence in high
places." It is all right, Sir St.
Barbe, to slash around in the
swamps and on the level common
but look out for the "high places."
There might something tumble
from those samethigh places that
would smash your castles into
smithereens.
Kaslo has a band of which she
is and may well be proud. Our
boys have all "been there before,"
which is in part the secret of. their
success. Several new kiBtruments
are needed to complete their equipment and the assistance of the
citizens is needed in obtaining
them. For this purpose $27 was
colected in twenty minutes one
day this week by Archie Fletcher,
which shows that an interest is
taken in the matter. Instruments
purchased with money contributed
by the citizens will be the property
of the City. The council has appropriated $50 for a band stand
and given permission for its erec-
on 4th st. just below the crossing
of Front street.
Adams & Cummings have the
first carload of Pabst Milwaukee
Draught beer ever shipped to
Kootenay. Try it and be invigorated. Our drinks must be as good
as Milwaukee's. *
1IKHJB AND   THERE.
A war-cloud hovers between
Russia and Japan.
W..C. Archer, whilom of New
Denver, has plunged into the swim
at Rossland.
Cleveland has whipped his party
into line at Louisville, the head-
qiinrters of the southern states.
The Bunker Hill <fc Sullivan
mine has resumed work with 150
men under the direction of Manager Bradley,
Manitoba is in a position similar
to that of South Carolina in I860,
with the difference that Manitoba
is right and South Carolina was
wrong.
There are a few fools left. One
of them named Paul Webb proposes to go over the falls at Spokane in a barrel or sub-marine
boat of his own contrivance.
At the June assizes holden in
Nelson, James Westgate was found
guilty of manslaughter, but as the
offense was committed under great
provocation, and in the nature of
self defense, he received the light
sentence of 11 months in prison.

W. J. Trethlwey, a minerallogist

Bulls aro   Coming,
The fii'it consignment of rails
for the Kaslo ,' & Slocan railway
will arrivetat Bonner's Ferry next
week. Th% will hot be brought
from there* until the company's
wharf is completed and in shape
to receive jliem.

-Nine; Hundred,
When questioned as to the number of men- employed on the' construction o$ the Kaslo & Slocan
railway, Superintendent Ffolliott
says there'are a few over nine hundred." That is .about 300 more
than were; employed.-at any time
on construction Work of the Nakusp
& Slocan railway.
CmUii't Do Without It.
Pripcipajly through the efforts
of Mrs. Norquay, and a few other
willing workers, including .Rev.
Gaebel, Three Forks has a church.
ty js erect 0.4, on the. terrace. back of
the principal street, and.will also
be used for school and concert purposes. It.is a good building and a
credit to tho town.
High Oracle Ore.
Matt. Guthrie brought down to
Three Folks; some specimens of
high grade ore from the Antelope,
that attracted a great deal of attention. The ore would run between three thousand and four
thousand ounces of silver to the
ton. The Antelope is one of the
Dardanelles group.
Sudden   Death.
Mrs. Matlow, who formerly kept
a hotel at Bear Lake, and afterwards resided at Three Forks, died
suddenly, and under suspicious
circumstances, at Revelstoke last
week. An inquest was held, of
which we have not heard the result, but a rumor is current that
someone will have to answer to a
charge of poisoning.
Not Much to Pay,
Representatives of the railway
company say they were very much
disappointed over the failure of the
exemption by-Jaw to receive the
assent oi a majority of the voters
of the municipality. They have
always regarded the agreement
entered into at the time of signing
the petition for incorporation as
binding and one that they could
rely on.
Dominion Duy at Nelson.
The people of Nelson have made
elaborate arrangements for the
celebration of Dominion Day and
extend a cordial invitation to the
people of the neighboring towns
and mining camps to meet with
them. Kaslo people should go in
goodly numbers. Three steamboats leave here on the morning
of that day'affording opportunity
for all to go.
JULY 1st.���DOMINION DAY.
Excursion to Nelson.
The Steamer ALBERTA will
leave Kaslo for Nelson on Monday
July 1st at 7 o'clock a.m., on Tuesday July 2nd at 8 o'clock, returning will leave Nelson at 6 o'clock
both days.
The Kaslo Band has been secured for Monday's trip.
Tickets for the round trip, $1.50.
Good to return until Wednesday.
The North Fork Trail. (  .
At an expense' of less- than five
hundirecl dollars -a trail worth at
least a thousand dollars lias lieen
made for o^ miles up the North
Fork of Carpenter creek. The men
employed were nearly all interested in mineral claims in close
proximity to the trail and were
interested in accomplishing a great
deal with the small appropriation.
T. M. Gibson had charge of the
work which was done in a first-
class manner.
Accidents.
Where so many men are employed, accidents are' to be expected. An' Italian was struck
Sunday by a falling tree. He
sustained injuries which may result in his death. Another man,
named Clark, was brought to town
yesterday with a broken leg. He
was taken to the Adams hotel, and
after haying the injured member
placed in plaster-paris will go to
his home in Washington.
Smelter. In   Sight.
Three more smelters for West
Kootenay may now be regarded as
"in sight." One at Nelson, to be
erected by the Hall mining company for the smelting of the Silver
King ore; one on a new site, near
Bannock point, at the head of
Arrow lake, to be erected by the
Kansas City Smelting Co. under
the patronage of the C.P.R.; and
one at Trail creek by a Montana
company lor the Bmelting of Trail
creek ores.
Worthy of Its Stool.
It is just dawning upon the
mind of the drowsy old C.P.R. that
there is a competitor in the field.
The way in which the Kaslo &
Slocan railway runs around Sandon and shuts the former company off from the Slocan Star is
an eye-opener to it and teaches it
that there are engineers in the
field that know more about railroading than all the C.P.R. engineers that ever passed over the
Nakusp & Slocan railway put
together.
The Outlook in the   Slocau.
The prospect in the Slocan was
never better than at present.
Competitive railroads will offer
better facilities, and probably better rates, for shipping than have
before existed there.
It is learned that it is the intention of the Duluth-Detroit syndicate to employ about 200 men in
mining on the Alamo and contiguous properties. This information
is not official, but is substantially
correct. ���
It is expected that the Slocan
Star force will be increased to 100
men, and about 200 will be employed in the other mines of tlie
district, making in all 500, or
double the number employed last
winter. Several mine owners are
making arrangements to start
work next month and by the middle of August tilings will be humming in the Slocan.
MOIili     AllOUT      THK      KXEJ1PTION
AOKIS15M1SNT.
Editor Phospkctoh, Sir���In your
article unon the defeat of the tax
exemption by-law you say that the
condition upon which a public
meeting in the "mists of the past''
voted in favor of exemption was a
point in dispute.
There need not be any dispute.
The condition was that the Kaslo
and Kootenay Land Co. should
sign the petition to the Lieut.-Gov
ernor in Council asking for the
incorporation of Kaslo as a   city.
As one of the committee appointed by the people of Kaslo to
prepare and present said petition,
the duty of asking the Land Company for its signature was assigned to me. When in Victoria
in February, 1803, I interviewed
the officers of the company upon
the subject.
They'made the exemption of the
railway property from taxation the
condition of giving their assent.
The committee reported this fact
plainly and emphatically to a public meeting of the people of Kaslo,
before they accepted the signature
or presented the petition. Had
there been objection then made,
the committee would have so notified the Land Company and they
would have withheld their signa?
ture, and Kuslo would have re
mained unincorporated as it was
impossible for the committee to get
two thirds in value of the property
affected represented upon their petition otherwise.
The exact nature of the exemption stipulated for, is a matter for
consideration; and I interpret the
vote taken the other day to mean
that the people thought that the
by-law put before them asked for
too much.
I am sure that,  when  a  proper
understanding of the matter   has
been reached, the people  of  Kaslo
will reconsider their decision.
Yours Truly,
G. O. Buciianan.

To D. C. Corbin first, and to the
pther enterprising citizens of Spokane, is due the development of the
Trail creek mines. Without the
S. F. & N. R'y, the Trail creek
camp would have remained unheard of, save by a few hardy prospectors. If it had been a hundred
miles from the boundary, or right
un the main line of the C.P.R., it
would have remained as dead as
lllicilleweat. It was fortifnate in
,its location.
Wc do not agree with the oft-
repeated statement that silver is
the money of the poor man and
gold the money of the rich man.
When coined at a ratio that will
keep both metals in circulation���
and without their being coined at
such a ratio we cannot have bimetallism���gold will be as much
the money of poor men as of rich
men, and the rich men will be just
as anxious to secure silver as gold.
Owing to its greater bulk the
smaller denominations will be
coined in silver, while the larger
will be in gold; but even the poor
man sometimes has two-and-a-half,
live or ten dollars worth of something to sell and is entitled to a
piece of the yellow, metal. The
rich man also needs a handful oi
"chicken feed" for change. The
habit of calling silver the poor
man's money serves no good pur-
p ise, and besides setting up an unnecessary caste, is liable to lead to
a confusion of ideas on the finance
question, Let us have all the
money for all the peopV^^.
CXOUSTON  PKA1SES CLUVKLASB.
No doubt the thousands of business men in the United States who
Jiave been ruined by Cleveland'*
financial policy will feel compensated for all their losses when they
learn that the president's course is
approved by the general manager
.of the Bank of Montreal.
At the 77th annual meeting of
���the share-holders of the bank, held
at Montreal June 3rd, General
Manager E. S. Clouston said:
"Had it not been for the firm
stand taken by Mr. Cleveland,
aided by a syndicate of bankers
and financiers who are carrying
through with apparent success one
of the most difficult and delicate
financial operations of the century,
the United States would today
have been iu the throes of a panic
to which that of 1893 would have,
been child's play. In times of
business depression as in epidemics
there always comee to the surface a
crop of cranks and quacks armed
with special nostrums or theories
to cure everything, and the ignorant driven to desperation are very
apt to seize on the most plausible,
only to find out later how deeply
.they have been deceived. Of such is
THE   SILVER HERESY
���.if free coinage at present rampant
in the United States, prompted by
interested silver mine owners, fostered by theorists and demagogues
and accepted by a large number of
unthinking farmers, laborers, etc.,
who are feeling the pinch of low
prices. I am glad to see that
active and organized efforts are
being made at last to stem the rising tide, and I have no doubt they
will be entirely successful. These
efforts are forcibly assisted by the
continued increase in gpld production, and the steady rise in staples
without a corresponding rise in
silver, refuting some of the chief
theories and statements of the silver men. I saw it stated the other
day that a French writer, referring
to the tendency  of Americans to
wards the adoption of irrational
and exploded financial theories,
said that God is good to his little
children, drunken men, and the
people of the United States, or
they would have gone to eternal
smash long ere this. The silver
question is one that we, as large
lenders in the United States, watch
very closely, and though we could
probably do business there as profitably on a silver basis as a gold
one we would like to see the present uncertainty removed.
C. P. R. vs. THE PEOPLE,
Anent the report that the Canadian Pacific has withdrawn its objections to the British Columbia
Southern building a railroad
through the Crow's Nest pass and
that consequently the road will be
built, the Edmonton Bulletin exclaims, inquiringly: Who owns
this country? It adds these remarks:
This is one of the occasions in
which circumstances alter cases.
When the British Columbia Southern was first projected some years
ago to run from Burrard Inlet
through the Kootenay mining
country to the Crow's Nest pass,
the railway from Dunmore to
Lethbridge was still in the handB
of the Gait Company, and that
company was applying for a charter to extend its line to meet the
British Columbia Southern in the
same pass. This would have given
direct connection between the' coal
deposits in the pass and the silver
and gold ores of Kootenay, and
besides would have given Southern
Alberta and British Columbia an
independent line of railway to the
Pacific and connected with the
States, competing with the Canada
Pacific. That was when the C.P.R.
made its objections; and although
the proposed roads would, in one
stride, have put Canada in the
front as a silver producing country, the objections of the C.P.R.
were supported in parliament by
the ministry and the line was not
allowed to proceed. The Gait
Company and the British Columbia Southern were not asking for
any special favors either as to land
grants, cash bonus or special privileges. All that they asked was the
liberty .of applying British capital
in the development of an important part of this country, and the
priviledge was denied. This is one
instance of how the C.P.R. has
used its influence with the government to secure the development of
the west. Since that time the
Gait Company has been practically
squeezed out of the railroad business in Canada, and the line from
Dunmore to Lethbridge has become a part of the C.P.R. system.
Now the C.P.R. has withdrawn its
objections and the development of
the country will be proceeded with,
strictly of course along C.P.R. lines
and for C.P.R. benefit.

Mrs. A. J. Becker. The Phoenix Group.
If there were no other properties
on the North Fork of Carpenter
creek than the Phoenix group of
mineral claims, it would still be
an important part of the Slocan
mining district. The group consists of three claims, viz.: the Lib-
bie R., the Phoenix and the Alham-
.bra; and lies on the east side of the
creek about four miles from the
.town of Three Forks. The owners
.are T. M. Gibson, E. G. Smidt,
Dr. Bruner and W. Harrison.
��� Arriving at the Phoenix claim
.we found a comfortable house
where the two first named members of the company reside, and
and entertain visitors with a hospitality   characteristic    of    mine
owners.
*
We find that a .tunnel has been
.run into the mountain side about
.sixty feet; that more than half of
the distance it followed a stringer.
About forty feet from the mouth of
the tunnel, jn a ledge 6^ feet wide,
two chutes of clean ore were found.
,One followed the foot wall and one
the hanging wall, and from mere
.seams at first both have widened
until now or.e is 6 inches and the
other 12 inches thick, and it is believed by all mining men who
have seen the property that within
it short distance the two chutes
will unite and form a solid body
of ore in the face of the tunnel.
Assays on the ore found runs from
100 ozs. in silver up. One pay
streak runs 420 ozs. in silver. Assays for lead show from 40 to 75
per cent per ton.
The ore in the foot wall chute
shows a considerable quantity of
grey copper, picked specimens assaying several thousand ozs. per
ton. It is believed that further
development will show'large quantities of this character of ore.

.The provincial government .hag
ordered 1,000- copies of Kemp's
' write up of the Slocan mining district���published a few weeks ago
as a supplement to this paper.
The Kaslo & Slocan railway
.building is causing the town [Bonner's Ferry] to assume a livelier
appearance. The travel through
the town from now on till winter
will be heavy, and times will commence to improve.���Kotenai Her-
.ild.
The Ruth and Baby Ruth are
different properties. The Ruth is
near the Slocan Star, belongs to D.
0. Clark, MeVey and two others,
and is a regular shipper. The
' Baby Ruth is in the gold belt on
. 8-mile creek. It is six miles from
Silverton, lies between the Empire
and the Carbonate Hill, and is
owned by Hunter & McKinnon,
Pete Grant and one or two  others.
It Hung Fire.
David Patterson and Geo. Mitchell were working together in what
is known as Gob level in No. 5
long walk. On Tuesday morning
about 5 oclock they lit a shot with
the view of blasting. The shot not
going off in the usual time, Patterson, after some delay, went back to
the spot, when the shot went off,
injuring him severely about the
face, breast and arms.
D. C. Clark, of the Ruth, has
gone to Rossland where he has
some interests.
Herbert Twigg, the New Denver
surveyor, is determining the boundaries of some claims hear Ainsworth.
Yes, books are scarce in newspaper offices. The Prospector has
no dictionary and the Rossland
Miner has no grammar.
C. W. McAnn, who was fined
$20 by the police judge for discharging a revolver on the street,
has appealed the case to the
county court.
The school directors held a meeting Wednesday and in footing up
accounts ascertained that the district is $32 in debt. The cost of
moving and repairing the school-
house was $360, The rftmaining
portion of the government appropriation of $400 was applied to the
payment of outstanding accounts,
leaving only the above named
amount of $32 still unpaid. The
question with tlie board now is:
how shall it be paid? The board
has no power to raise money.
Over Ills Head.
Three Forks citizens determined
some time ago that they wouldn't
be be put off any longer ��by the
Gold Commissioner, but that they
would appeal direct to the provincial government when they want
anything
It was in this manner that they
obtained the money for the North
Fork trail. When Col. Baker
stopped in Tinee Forks overnight
about 20 claiia holders beseiged
him in his hotel and he was glad
to grant them $500 to get rid of
them, as they wouldn't take "no"
for an answer, and would have
filled the car and gone with him
to Victoria if he hadn't acceeded to
their just demands.
A petition is now being circulated in Three Forks and receiving
many signatures. It is addressed
to the officials at Victoria and expresses consternation at and disapproval of the action of the Gold
Commissioner in refusing to expend on the TferJBe Forks and Sandon Jvagon road the money appropriated by the Provincial parliament for thut purpose.

Will be Running in September.
Vancouver World: D. J. Munn,
.who has just returned from the
Kootenay country, reports that a
force of over 500 men are. employed
in grading the Kaslo & Slocan
railway and in a short time the
number will be increased to 1,000,
The rails will be on the ground by
July and the whole 32 miles of
road from Kaslo to Cody creek will
he completed and ready for operation by September. A great number of trails are already being
built from the mines down to the
line of the railway and others are
projected, so that as soon as the
railway is completed the mine
.owners will be in a position to
ship. Many new strikes have recently been made in the Kaslo-
Slocan country, among them the
Ruth which is on the same mountain as the Slocan fetar, the Daisy
on the South Fork of the Kaslo,
rand a new body of ore has been
.struck on the Lucky Jim. One of
the most satisfactory features of
the West Kootenay country is that
the ore bodies are so large that the
miners are able to sell enough as
they develop their properties to pay
them well for their work, and a
poor man is not therefore obliged
to sell his prospect to a capitalist,
but can hold on to his claim and
reap all the benefits from it. The
policy of the new road will be to
develop the mining interest by
giving low rates, relying on the
rolume of ore shipments to pay it.
APPLICATION    FOR     LIQUOR    LICENSE
Notice is hereby given that the undersigned
Will at the expiration of thirty days apply to
ihe Stipendiary Magistrate of West Kootenay
litrict for a license to sell liquor at retail in
