THE PROGRAM CARRIED OUT
Without it Hitch or Jar Iu the Proceedings.      Prizes Distributed to
Succesful   Contestants.
The celebration of the 24th of
May had been well advertised not
only by the Prospector, but, also,
by large tri-colored posters, which
'ornamented dead-walls and told oi
KASLO! KASLOI
In every torvn from Spokane to
Revelstoke. Prospectors and min-
"ers began arriving from the hills
and interior towns on the. previous
day, so .that there was a large
'crowd in town early on the morning of the 24th.
About noon the Str. Alberta,
'chartered for the day by the Odd
Fellows of Nelson, arrived loaded
with excursionists from Nelson,
Balfour, Pilot Bay and Ainsworth.
Salutes were fired, the engine at
Buchanan's mill blew a vigorous
and hearty salute, and the Kaislo
Band, on behalf of the citizens,
welcomed the visitors with lively
airs which were responded to by
the Nelson Band.
The city had been nicely decorated with evergreen trees and bunting and presented a .becoming holiday appearance.
The sailing matches had begun
before the arrival of the Alberta
and at that time the white sails
decked the waters of the lake as
the little crafts made zig-zag
bourses toward the mouth of Campbell creek. James Anderson of
Kaslo won the race. Foster, 2nd.
The Ladies' Challenge Pennant
was the prize. It goes to the person or boat winning 3 years in
'succession.
CALEDONIAN SPORTS.
Greater interest was taken in the
'sports than on previous years. Entries were made quickly on call of
the games, and the rules prescribed
by the judges were readily accepted. The judges were: Robt.
Green, John Houston and Adam
McKay.
The largest prize offered under
this head was $10 to the winner
,bf the men's race; $5 second prize.
,Tbe race was won by J, R. Camp-
hell of Nelson; J- McKernon 2nd.
. The boyB' race was won by Charlie Kane, Fred Bongard 2nd.
J. R. Campbell won the wheel-
harrow race.
Bongard and Kane won the
three-legged race.
In High jumping, McKernon
took 1st przie.
Al Tregillus took the $5 offered
for pitting the shot.
It will be seen that Nelsoh
walked away with most of the
prizeB. ~ '
The money was paid to eabh
winner as eoon as the judges' decision was given!
HORSE-RACES.
, For two Hours the jockeys had
been riding their well-groomed flyers up and down the race course,
impatient at the Caledonians who
occupied a portion of the. course.
Who doesn't love a horse! "My
kingdom for a horse;" There were
tbree   entries*   for   the   free-for-all
race'. Pool selling was a feature
of the Jay, but the betting was not
high. A. Walla Walla horse had
come into town in disguise with a
pack on his backj but the ring
which was backing him had let
.the cat ouftof the bag���that is, a
hint of the horse's record���and
some of our local horsemen kept
their animals off of the race-course,
and none of them would bet
against the stranger.
Cameron's Nellie won the first
heat, but the stranger took the 2nd
and 3rd heats and the $50 prize
money;
The pony race was won by the
Cameron mare. So that her winnings amounted to $50.
ACCIDENT,
At the conclusion of the last race
occurred the only accident of the
day. A collision occurred between
Jim Brown's pony going at full
speed and Arthur Goodenough's
roadster. Both riders were thrown
to the ground. Brown wasn't
born to be killed that way and
was soon on his feet again. Good-
enough' appeared undecided
whether to take any interest in
the subsequent proceedings. He
was picked up while still unconscious. Two or three hundred people crowded around. A passage
way Was made through the crowd
and the wounded man, now able
to walk, was taken to his home
where he soon recovered.
THE DANCE.
The Columbia hall had been
beautifully decorated and prepared
for the dance. There was some
dancing in the afternoon, but the
out-door attractions proved too
great.
The Alberta left at six, taking
off a majority of the visitors but
many staid over for the dance at
night. The grand march took
place at 9 p. ni. From that time
until 1 a. m. the hall was crowded
with those whose enjoyment of that
popular pastime is a feature of
their lives.
Too much cannot be said in
praise of the two bands which
dispensed music at short intervals
throughout the day.
THE visitors.
There were hundreds among the
visitors whom we did not know.
We recognized a few, however,
among them being our member, of
the provincial parliament, J. Fred
Hume. He was accompanied by
his wife and daughter! From the
balcony', they with half a hundred
others of Nelson's and Kaslo's
"best people" had a good view of
the races. Col. Baker and Capt.
Fitzstubbs looked on from the
vantage ground of the Kaslo
restaurant building. John Houston's time was taken up with the
Caledonean sports, and he had
barely time to clasp our hand before climbing on to the Alberta.
His job printer, Fox, was so
pleased with Kaslo that he wanted
to remain. He was, however,
Shanghaied by his comrades and
carried off. Grange V. Holt came
along with the excursion to represent the banking interests. The
other hundred and fifty Nelsonites
failed to leave their cards at this
office.
, J,! t). Mjirsden, Robt. Herring,
L. V. Roberts and J. J. McFeeter
ret>rei��rit��d Pilot Bay and the Blue
Bell. The small steamer Idaho
also brought a number of visitors
from Pilot Bay. There were a
number of visitors from Ainsworth
but we didn't get the list.
There were only a few visitors
from New Denver, as the day was
celebrated there also.
Jiowman and Boyd of the concentrator���being used to city life
before the paystreak was struck in
the Idaho���came over to enjoy
it again. The Three Porks delegation consisted of Col.Bowen, Frank
Provost, Geo; Lovatt, Sam. Brown,
Jack Mtdigan and a score or two
of others.
the next day.
Thejboat racing, for which liberal' prizes were offered, was
crowded out of its regular place on
the program, and did not come off
until 11 o'clock the next day.
A. T. Garland was judge of the
boat races.
Single Scull: Tom McGovern,
Jake Fink, C. St. Clair. Won by
McGovern.
Single Canoe: Harry Mathews,
Jim Anderson. Won by Harry
Mathews.
Double Scull: Chas. Bates and
Leo LaMar; Thos. McGovern and
Jake Fink. A pretty race, pulled
evenly. Won by Bates and La-
Mar.
Double Canoe: Jimmie Anderson and /Harry Slayton; Harry
Mathews and Frank Provost. Won
by Anderson and Slayton by one-
half length.
MONEY.
The sum of $529 was contributed
by our citizens. To this add the
entrance fees in the horse-races.
The sum was sufficient to pay all
bills and leave a balance of a few
dollars.
The officers of the day discharged
their duties to the satisfaction of
all. The success of the day is
largely due to .the fact that the
president, secretary, chairmeh and
members of committees all worked
harmoniously and with a will.
On the Grade.
The work of building a narrow
gauge railway from Kaslo to Cody
is now well under way. Three of
the sub-contractors have on full
forces, while in the camp of McLean, McBeth and McLean 110
men are awaiting the final location. "It won't do to Crowd the
engineers too close," says McLean.
The engineers found a pretty difficult piece of work along the canyon. 	
Sudden   Death.
A man known as Joe Chisholm
died suddenly in his cabin in the
south end of town, Sunday morning; His roommate, Thos. Mul-
veny, observing that Chisholm was
deathly Sick, went for doctor Rogers. When the doctor arrived at
the cabin the unfortunate man was
dead; The cause of death was
heartfailure induced by excessive
alcoholism- The Mayor wired
Coroner E. C. Arthur for instructions and received Word to bury
the man if there were no suspicious
circumstances. There .being none;
the corpse was buried by the city.
Joe Chisholm was a painter by
trade. Had been a resident of
Kootenay for five or six years. He
had been well educated and tip to
six or seven years ago did not
touch liquor. Moralists can find
much food for reflection in his
mournful fate.

With .a little skillful probing of
the promoters of the Kaslo & Slo-
Cah railway we might get some interesting information regarding depot grounds, machine shops, etc.,
but it is enough for the present to
know that we are getting the railroad sure and that the force employed is being increased every
week. One good thing at a time
is enough.

About New Finds.
Every day or two we are told of
some new find of galena or dry ore,
and the relator is probably surprised that there is not a big blowout in the next issue of this paper
about it. Fact is that while a new
find is a matter of great interest to
the lucky individual who makes
it, it is of no great interest to the
general public. There are so
many splendid prospects and developed mines in Kootenay,
especially in the Slocan, that a few
more or a few less makes but little
difference; Let tri��i pTplfie' of silver
go Up ten cents more, and there
wouldn't be railroads enough in
Kootenay, With- those now building, to transport the ore that
would be offered. We cannot undertake to chronicle all the new
finds. We have to reserve a portion of the paper for other purposes.
Got Off Easy.
Last Friday an old prospecter
named Long made himself obnoxious around the Adams hotel, and
after being told several times to
leave the house, Mr. Cummings,
the proprietor, took hold of him to
put him out. In the altercation
which ensued, Mr. Cummings was
severely cut in the arm with a'
sharp instrument. The cut wa^
through a coat sleeve and three
shirt sieves, and then went through
the flesh to the bone, and was
about 6 inches long. Cummings,
however, did not know of the cutting until he recovered from the
excitement a few minutes later and
saw blood running from his sleeve.
He then went out on the porch and
gave his assailant a sound threshing. Long was locked up iii the
city jail. His case was crrilod Sat
urday and continued until Monday. The evidence produced by
the city for the prosecution was
weak, for, while everyone believed
that Long had used a knife, there
was HO positive proof. A fine ot
$25 and costs was imposed, which
was palS. by Lane Gilliam with
two twenty dollar gold pieces, iaw-
ful money of the United States.

IN THE SI.OCAN STAB.
Lighting a candle we enter the
,tun.nel; and do our best to keep on
*the plank in   the  centre 'of  the
tramway.   The. candle, only makes
the darkness visible and finally re-
Hires from active  service   through
the agency of a splash   of   water.
As we get nearer the end   of  the
tunnel we can  hardly distinguish
"anything for a time, owing to the
"dense clouds of dynamite   smoke
'that hug the sides of the   tunnel,
and as we look round at the sickly
light from the miners' canti.es  and
watch the grim figures of the men
"at work with drill and hammer, it
���puts us in mind of what hell would
look like  without  the   brimstone
and fire.   In this tunnel,  4oO   feet
;from the top of the mine,   we   saw
five feet of clean and fifteen feet of
concentrating ore,  and   concluded
"that we could pay a million dollars
'for the property and   not   lose  on
the deal.
*   After breathing   the compressed
air and examining the walls of the
:tunnel, we proceeded to No. 3 tunnel, higher up  the  mountain.   In
this tunnel we  clambered  up  and
'down   ladders   into    stopos    and
'niches of different   sizes   until   we
i- era as black as the historical  ace
pi spades.    But we saw  something
'that millions of people have never
seen.     Gentle   reader,   you   have
'read fairy tales of caves  plastered
with gold and precious stones that
sparkled as the bandits turned  up
'the  lights.    Well,   that   is   some
thing like we saw in the  Star.    In
one place, not  blackened  by pow-
"der siuoko, wo flashed  our   candle
'to and fro and watched  the  bright
and glistening galena shine  under
the feeble rays of the popular   underground illuminator.     We   also
saw a   winze.   There   is   nothing
strikingly    handsome     about    i,
' winze.   It has a large mouth and
is only found   in   tunnels.    When
found on the surface it is called  a
shaft.    When    it   commences   life
from the roof of the tunnel instead
of the bottom, it is called an upraise.   When it meets a  congenial
.Upraise and the  two  become   one,
it is called  an   air   shaft.   There
are many things to see in a mine,
���but daylight is as scarce as fiddlers
in heaven.
There is enough ore blocked out
-in this mine to keep a large force
of men employed for ten years.
'Another tunnel, No. 5, has been
.started, and others will be run un-
.til a depth of 1,200 feet has been
gained. Twenty men are working
.on the mine now, and it is expected that 100 will be employed
before the summer is over. A
large concentrator will be built as
.soon as the machinery can be
brought in. There are over 20,-
(000 tons of concentrating ore on
hand. Two big Burleigh drills
.^nd an electric light plant will  be
put in this summer. There are 75
tons of ore sacked for shipment,
and as soon as the wagon road to
Three Forks is in good shape, the
Star will ship ore. The owners;
have promised to supply' the C. P.:
R. with at least 200 tons per
month during the summer. Most
of the concentrating ore will concentrate 4 to 1, and some of it will
go 2 to i;
We are delighted with the Star,
and hope its health will continue
to improve until it gives Canada
the proud distinction of having the.
greatest silver mine on earth.���

It is tc/be hoped that good to
the district will result from Col.
Baker's visit,
We are pleased to note that all
tiur West Kootenay contemporaries
lire showing evidences of increased
business and thrift.
���Cleveland haB done one good
thing. He has forever silenced
those who were arguing that the
presidential term should last six
years.      ^_______
If we can get permission of the
Nelson Miner, we would like to
make a few remarks''about Her
Majesty's mail service in West
Kootenay.
Col. Baker, having recently been
to Ottawa is able to make a pretty
shrewd guess as to when the Dominion election will be. He thinks
it will not occur until next year.
Boston Traveller: In England
the minister of state loses rest and
the people sleep soundly. Over
here the people walk the floor
while the snores of Grover and
Gresh stir the ambient.
The poor Chinaman is not appreciated on this continent. It
costs him $50 to get across the
boundary if he is coming north
and about $200 to be smuggled
through if he is going south.
Cleveland recently sent ail envoy through the west to learn the
feeling of the people on the financial question. He reported that
Harvey Scott of the Oregonian was
ihe only goldbug he found west of
the Mississippi.
THE HOOS1KK VIEW.
Indianapolis Journal: The Canadian government had better go
very slow in-trying to coerce the

Iteductlon   Work*   and   Mine   Development.
Spokane Miner: Persons -of limited experience in mining seldom
realize how much development
must be done in a mine before a
mill or reduction works of any
kind are necessary to treat the ore
bf that mine. The West is strewed
with mills, smelters and concentrators that have never 'turned a
wheel or have worked but a few
months.
The only safe rule is that a mine
should have enough ore in sight to
bet the cost of a mill or reduction
plant and show a good profit beside, before works are begun.
Smooth promoters and inexperienced superintendents many times
persuade the owners or investors,
that such and such a plant for
redujjing their ore is needed, when
but little work has been done and
the ore that can positively be
counted on would not run the proposed works a month. The result
��� bf this is often a large and useless
expenditure for machinery, on
which the promoter probably gets
K commission, and when the short
run has been" mrfde, the startling
iliscovery is made that the mine is
but of ore and there is no more to
be found.   The investors have lost
tir money and feel they have
n gulled some way, and curse
mining forever a'ftef as a delusion
fcrtd tt sniff* it not worse.   Ordi
nary care and a business sense
would have saved this result. Develop your mine thoroughly, and
build your works according to the
amount and quality of your ore.

The Blue Ridge hotel is -more
popular than ever, especially with
the young mine owners of the
Slocan, since Miss Mary Layton
took charge of the culinary department.
The "patronage" referred to by
lhe versatile correspondent of the
���Tribune was not regarded as patronage by any of the parties to the
-transaction, inasmuch as there was
not a cent of profit to the "local
^establishment." Its work and incidental expenses were .gratuitous.
The Odd Fellows of Nelson had
their annual excursion to Kaslo on
the Queen's Birthday. The excursion ists to the number of 150 left
Nelson on the Steamer Alberta at
<8 o'clock. Five minutes afterwards the Steamer Nelson pulled
out bound for Bonner's Ferry.
There was a nice race for about
nine miles, when the Nelson
.crossed the bows of the Alberta, to
the evident delight of the crew of
the former and the chagrin of the
of the excursionists. About fifty
were added to the excursionists at
Balfour, Pilot Bay and Ainsworth.
���The return was made to Nelson at
11:30 at night, a stop of half an
hour being made at Pilot Bay, to
allow a look at the smelter. The
excursion was a success, and the
proceeds will be used in fencing
and otherwise improving the Odd
Fellow's section of the cemetery.���

The Howson Creek Tramway.
We learn from J. E. Bowman
,of the Humphrey-Moore concentrator that 80 tons of 16 lb. rails
are now at the concentrator to be
used in ironing the tramway, the
first section of which���3400 feet-
is ready for ties and rails.
Work on the second section is
far advanced and will be completed in about three weeks. The
.cars are being made at the B. C.
iron works, Vancouver. The tramway will be capable of carrying
from mines to mill 400 tons in 12
,hours.      	
Gold from Coal.
It is stated that analysis has
been made of thirteen coal samples
taken from the chief Witwatersand
.coal basin, comprising the Springs
colliery, Vogelfontien colliery and
Breakpan colliery. Each sample
^consisted of a bag of 200 lbs. of
coal, which were burnt separately,
,and the ashes of each of these bags
was carefully analysed by a chemist. They produced from mere
traces of gold to 6 dwts. 5 grains of
gold per ton of coal. The mean
between the extances is 5 dwts.,
while the average of the thirteen
samples was upward of 3i dwts.
Researches are to be made' on a
much larger scale in Europe, in
order to test the yield of gold by
isamples taken at forty or fifty different places, and by several thorough analysis by different chemi-
���cai methods, and the results will
be known in not too long a time.���
