It must be gratifying to everyone interested in the Slocan that
the mines are all doing well. The
owners of,, the Slocan Star are
ready to send out a train load of
ore every day whenever they can
, obtain shipping facilities and rates
,to suit them. The Alamo has 250
���tons of concentrates waiting for
,cars, and a new strike on that
.property is reported this week.
The Idaho is producing a large
amount of clean ore and a large
:amount of concentrating ore. The
shipping of 25 carloads of ore in
one week gives a fair idea of the
capacity of the mine. ,-The Reco
-is taking on mom men���has 18 or
20 now. The Noble Five has
yielded 6Q0 tons this winter, and
the place they were taken from is
Bcarcely noticeable in comparison
with what is left. So it is on
through the whole list.
Almost every stroke of a prospector's or miner's pick discloses
more wealth.    '��� :
Marc Gilliam has put a safe���

"Charcoal" Brown was in town
on Thursday. He has been at the
foot of Slocan lake hunting for
borne time. He reports killing 19
deer but no porcupines.
Ben Finnell and John Collotto
came up from New Denver on
Thursday and left fur Kaslo on
Fridays stage where they will
spend the remainder of the winter.
Engineers are running a line for
a flume to convey water to the concentrator. The south fork of Carpenter creek will probably be
tapped about one mile above town.
Another American editor, Eber
C. Smith, has had the audacity to
publish a paper in West Kootenay
without asking permissin of the
Great Hoodoo. In Rossland, too.
Eber, you are rash. Sail in, Eber.

Bare'* Hope for Silver.
LoNBOJSt, Feb. 19.���Lord Rose-
berry hastily, summoned a meeting
of the cabinet today which lasted
fu]ly an hour. It is rumored that
the dissolution of parliament is
imminent. Last evening, when a
vote was being taken in the house
of commons on Sir William Har-
court's motion to .close the debate
on the address in reply, to the
queen's speech, it was confidently
believed by'the opposition that the
government would be defeated.
The vote was 279 to 271.     fa -

No mirie>in the district has entered the ligt of shippers so soon
after the discovery of the ledge
upon it as has the Yakima. The
owners have felt confident for
some time that they had a good
tiling in the Yakima, but not until
about two weeks ago could they
find the ledge, although they had
cut a trench within a few> feet oi
it. The removal of a few feet of
dirt at tha right place disclosed a
fine six foot ledge containing fully
four feet of solid c'��an galena,
which assays 125 ozs. itr silver to
the ton.
Previous to the discovery the
property had been ponded to Robt.
McFerran. It'is doubtful whether
he would not part with it for teti
times the, amount of the bond.   '
The force on the Yakima has
been increased from 6 %>���> 14 men,
and the more work done on' the
property the better it shows. Ore
is being rawhided from it to the
sled road. It is then brought
down in sjeds to ^he railroad. ' The
fine showing on the Yakima is one
more testimonial to the phe-
nominal wealth of the mineral
belt'of the Slocan.
The greatest mystery in the
camp is the 'Little Daisy, a gold
property on'Tenmile creek. Mr.
Abercrombie, one qf the owners,
arrived from Spokane this week.
Andy Murphy has a plan for
obtaining water for bis private use
which may lead to the construction
of a complete system of waterworks in New Denver. He purposes to lay ��-pipe from &- spring
on the mountain side to his premises. From the constant supply
of water thus obtained he wilt supply all the* requirements of the
house, besides irrigating a garden
and lawn. A nice green lawn wijl,
make a pretty foreground' for his
residence property.

Mike McAndrews has been carrying a piece of rock around in
his pocket all winter. He said it
assayed $107 in gold and the ledge
it came from was as big as a barn.
The more Mike thought about that
ledge the larger and richer it grew
in his imagination. He began to
think himself a millionaire already. He wouldn't speak to him-,
self unless he was dressed up, and
he couldn't find a hat in town
large enough to fit him. Final y
Mike concluded to go and get a
few more samples of the gold rock
to send to Van Home, Jim Hill,
and other friends of his. Inducing
Jack Cress to go along, the two set
out about a week ago equipped
with snowshoes, blankets and provisions. Mike chartered a train
on the Nakusp & Slocan railway
which took them to the half-way
house. From there their journey
was over snow capped hills and
mountains. In two days they
reached the ledge, which, standing
perpendicular on the side of a canyon, was not covered with snow.
They secured two bags full of specimens, and in a few hours Mike
deposited them at the assayer's
Office in Three Forks. While waiting for the assay which was expected to disclose a thousand dollars of gold to the ton, he came up
town and spent money like a
prince treating his friends. He
then called for his assay, and lot
there was not a trace of gold. The
samples will not be sent to; Cleveland, Hill tind Van Home, but
Mike says he will find it next
time.

MX ' SLOGAN '��� PROSPECTOR
BY W.  D.  PRATT.
Mining brokers report a very
healthy interest in the mining
business, not only in Colorado, but
throughout the country. This is
not generally speculative, the tendency being toward mining as a
business rather than mere speculation. Dealers in mining machinery report a largely increased business, and many hew mills are being started. Even the owners and
promoters of new processes find it
much easier to get a hearing than
'a year ago.���Mining Review.
A VVOKD ABOUT   STKIKKS.
The year just closed was prolific
With strikes in New York state, an
increase of 25 per cent being reported by the State Board of Mediation and Arbitration during the
year ending October 3i, 1894. The
"cities of New York and Brooklyn
apparently bore the brunt of the
industrial disturbance, as the majority of the strikes were for higher
wages in clothing and kindred
trades at those two cities. The importance of those industries may
be gauged from the fact   that,   ac-

around   workedout   camps   finan-j
daily successful. The successful ��� practical - Jcwillw,: Watchialwr"- and
prospectors are found among those _^. OnliflilB 4fe
between the two extremes. They
are the energetic, wideawake men
who go to new, or comparatively
new, mining districts, either witnin
a reasonable distance of present
transportation, or so situated as to
be easy of access in case of valuable
strikes, and examine the ground
and test the ledges thoroughly as
they go, selecting the best and
staying with them until they have
ascertained their real value.
This thing of going into a district and putting location notices
on everything in sight, besides a
good deal that is out of sight, and
then sitting around someone else's
fire, to save cutting wood, and borrowing chews of tobacco while
awaiting for some industrious
miner to strike it rich and thus
make their claims valuable, or for
a wealthy company to come along
and give them a million dollars
for ten cents' worth of prospecting, is played out. There are
too many single hand claim diggers and double hand potato miners gophering around in the nmun-
tains now. It makes the toe -of
one's boot ache to go around would

ORIGIN OP GOID QUABTZ VEINS.
It seems probable that under
natural conditions of heat and
pressure gold will unite with silica,
forming a silicate of gold slightly
soluble in hot water. Thus the
Bame conditions that favor the
solution of silica itself, which, as
is well khowri, is slightly soluble
In hot water, and the disposition
X>i it in the cavaties or fissures,
Would likewise be favorable to the
formation of a silicate of gold in
siliceous auriferous rocks, and the
Subsequent solution of the compound and its transportation alsb
from the massive rock into any
cavity or fissure; There would
thus be an infilling of fissure with
silica, together with an admixture
of silicate of gold, not to mention
other minerals. Time alone would
\hen be reqhired to effect the complete separation of the gold from
ihe silica with which it was united,
'and leave it as free metallic gold
in the diversified forms_and quantifies in which it is now found in the
'quartz veins. In support cf this
view Bischoff, Dr. Sterry Hunt nnd
Prof. Newberry, all high authorities, have expressed the opinion
that gold has probably been introduced into the veins in the form of
silicate.
Since the sea is the great receptacle of all solutions, it was safe to
conclude thut it contained thr
soluble salts of gold, but the fact
is not now a mere matter of deduction, but of actual knowledge.
Sontadt found from careful experiments on the pea water of Rampay
bay, Isle of Man, that sea water
contains a little under a grain of
gold per, ton. Estimating the
whole of the gold production of the
world to the present time at
��8,500.000,000 sterling, and taking
the weight of the sea waler of the
globe at 560,000,000,000.000,000
tons, as was the estimate by Prof.
H. Wurtz, of New York, we find
that the present seas of .the globe
contain upward of 5,000,000 times
as much gold as has ever been extracted from the rocks, and consequently we must conclude that the
seas of the globe in the .past have
been fully able to stock its mineral
deposits withall the gold they cob-
tain.
Prof. C. Wilkinson carried out
a long Beries of experiments, from
which it was evident that gold precipitated by organic matter segregated around metallic nuclei and
and besides gold, itself, the sulphates of the metals, as pyrites, and
galena, were especially attractive.
This is in entire accordance with
the well known fact of the association of gold frith pyrites. When
in association wtith pyrites or other
metallic minera', whether an association of adhesion merely or ns
an alloy, the gold would remain
so associated until induced by the
occurrence of new' and favoring
conditions to sever itself from its
metallic associates, nnd chemically
combine with an element., .or ,-a.
compound for which, under the
conditions to which it wa> exposed,
it had an affinity, and which body
would be supplied by silica.
From these considerations it
seems probable that gold wa6
originally dissolved in the waters
of the ocean, from which it was deposited, as the"result of the decomposition of soluble salts/of gold
by the action of organic matter,
and that it was then -eliminated
from sedimentary rocks by segregation to other metallic matter, witli
which it remained associated until
thermal conditions (caused by
deep seated position or not far
"distant igneousaction) induced a
chemical reactioh and likewise
^heated the" subterranean water of
\the rocks to make it an effective
Solvent  of   the   auriferous   ami
pound. So the gold of the massive
rocks was carried with silica by
percolating water into the accumulating "vein stuff" of rock fiissures,
where, on cooler conditions supervening, the aurifemUB compound
was deposited in a solid condition,
and the gold itself subsequently
separated by the segregation of the
silica to the Vein quartz and left
disseminated through the veih
stuff as metallic gold in the forms
in which it is now found.���Prof.
