Array ri  _  ! ITS  ;    3_S  . ���������  s? _>  NGS NE  i.  NUMBER 54.  AINSWORTH, BRITISH  COLUMBIA,  WEDNESDAY,  SEPTEMBER  21,  1892.  ' .  CENTS  i     . _^  j_'i  . !_\I \.;   IN    E.ltET-_._l   COLinilll.  _.*'  _.  (CONTINUED.)  For this group of mines H. G. Bond, a well-  known capitalist and mining broker of Seattle,  Washington, off (.red this spring $25,000 cash  and $275,000 in September, but both parties  seemed glad that the negotiations failed, though  tlie owners are now very anxious to sell, and  would .probably be glad to. accept other terms.  The Slocan Star is in a more accessible position  in the southern and opposite side of .Carpenter  creek, but presents the same general features.  Where the owners have commenced work they  had made a cross-cut of 7 feet into the lode, exhibiting a fine body of galena measuring in all  about _��������� feet 0 inches in width, and several tons  of ore were in the dump. According to the  owners, average assays' of this ore gave about  00 ounces of silver to the. ton of galena. This  lode or zone could be traced in the creek some  .700 yards away and 500 feet below; here it  showed itself much wider, but apparently only  carrying a very small percentage of lead and  silver. No work had been clone in this place,  but the owners were taking energetic steps to  drive a cross-cut 100 feet below their present  outcrop, I hope and believe with every chance  of their finding a fine deposit of ore.  The Freddy Lee is in tlie next canyon, and on  the same side of Carpenter Creek as the Slocan  Star. It is at an altitude of 1000 to 1500 feet  above the stream, and on the course of a snow  slide. Very little work had been done at the  time of my visit, not enough to determine exactly if the. re was a lode or zone, or if if was  only a "blow out" or pocket. On the dump  formed by breaking up the croppings at this  place, there were some 20 tons of galena, mostly  of coarse cubes with occasional nodules of letia-  hedrite (Fablers) which, it is reported, run very _  high in silver". Some 20 feet above where this  work was done there is a narrow seam of ore  some \ inches in width, and the same is found  about 80 feet below, but the lode is.nott_.tced or  its dip or strike determined, .lames Wardner,  the-Lucky .Mm of the Cceur d'Alene miners, and  a local celebrity, who was once connected with  the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mine, has bonded  this property for $15,000, and had made a payment of $1,500,' and was expected to do some  development work, ami to ship the ore on the  dump to some American smelting works, but  there was no trail when 1 was there within  about 5 miles of the mine. The Lucky Jim is  about 1000 feet above Bear Lake and presents  the same general appearance as t he other mines,  It.has been uncovered for about 30 feet on the  strike of the lode, The mineralized zone having  a width with possibly 3\ feet of galenite, where  there .is tin* best showing.. No development has  been done on this claim. There are other  groups of claims such as the Brennan camp and  .Jardine camp, but they do not claim to be of  much importance. The country is extremely  rough, the mountains being from 0000 to 9000  feet high, mostly with rocky summits, covered  with snow till midsummer, but generally  wooded high up the. slope; the valleys are V-  shaped. Snow slides are very frequent and the  creeks have many falls and rapid declivities,  and some may be used for water power, notably  Carpenter and Kaslo creeks.    Three rival trails  have been cut, one by the government, one by  the C. P. R. and one by the Kaslo Townsite  company, all of w_ ich are now finished and  passable for mules. It is reported that the C.  P. R. will make a wagon road from Nakusp to  the head of Slocan lake, but this can scarcely be  finished and will probably not he begun this  year. The Slocan river trail is 32 miles, lrom  the crossing on the C. P. R. to the Slocan lake;  it is then probably 14 miles to New Denver by  boat. The trail is fairly good and the grade  easy. The Kaslo trail is 21 or 22 miles from  Kaslo lake to the Bear lake at the summit, with  a rise from 1750 ( Kootenay lake) to 3780 feet at  the summit. There i$ an uncut trail from Bear  lake to the forks of Carpenter creek, about 6  miles, which would connect with trail to New  Denver. The trail is made about6 miles beyond  Bear lake, round the mountain hog-back, and  zig-zags up the mountain to the Payne mine, at  a height of about 5000 feet. The trail stopped  there, about 2������ miles from the Noble Five  group, because of the snow. The Nakusp trail  I did not go over. The season here when transport is feasible, is short, and the winters are  long, but now that there are 3 trails into the  mines, it is to he hoped that at least one will be  kept open all winter. The smelter and concentrating works which are being erected at Pilot  Bay, will be -when completed, the finest in the  Dominion, and equal to any in the United  States. The concentrators will have a capacity  of 100 tons a day,, and the roasting furnaces will  be-able to treat 50 tons to 75 tons. In addition  they are building a refinery which will separate  the lead and silver. There will be no difficulty  in procuring the limestone and iron ore needed  as flux, as there are beds of limestone in close  proximity to the Blue Bell mine, and the ore  from this mine in itself contains a good deal of  iron, in addition a fine deposit of iron ore has  been discovered opposite the smelter, on the  other side of the lake. The Blue Bell mine,  owned by the parties erecting the smelter, has  been sufficiently developed to prove the existence of enough ore to supply the sm^Xij^^,^  most to its full capacity, for some years to come  and the ore is easily and cheaply mined, the  tunnel coining out on the edge of the lake near  the wharf, about 8 miles north of the smelter.  The ore is a galena, mixed with considerable  quantities of iron pyrites and zinc blende, and  will need concentration. ���������It. is argentiferous,  carrying from 15 to 25 ounces of silver to the  ton/ There is a large quantity of decomposed  ore matter forming a talus at the foot of the  hill in which the mine is situated; the limestone  under.vinir the ore having been leached away,  the overlvin_r ore has fallen in, and has formed  by double reaction oxides and carbonates. Although the Pilot Bay smelter expects to depend  mainly on the Blue Bell mine for its supply of  ore, it will also be a custom smelter, and proposes to buy any lead or silver ores offered, and  to give prices which, while leaving a fair profit,  will encourage the extraction of ore. Next  year there will be no excuse, for any miners in  the Hot Springs camp or round Kootenay lake  to remain inactive. This smelter will depend at  present on Montana coke or charcoal made in  the vicinity, but they eventually look to the  Crow's Nest Pass as their source of fuel.    The  plans for the smelter were laid out before the  discoveries at the Slocan last year, or doubtless  another location would have been chosen, but it  can smelt all the ores coming out by the way of  Kaslo Unfortunately the proposed railroad on  the route is not of easy grade, and will be expensive to build, and the natural outlet is by  Carpenter creek to New Den ver. Canada has  to thank the McKinley tariff for this American  enterprise on her side of the line, and the same  cause has led to the erection of many furnaces  in Mexico, and the rich dry ores of Arizona and  New Mexico are now taken to the poorer galenas  of Mexico, and the silver is smelted there to the  great benefit of the southern republic, and the  injury of the American mining industry. The  great smelters of Helena and Butte City have  great difficulty in securing sufficient lead to flnx  the "dry" ores of Nevada, Idaho and Montana,  and there is no reason, with proper enterprise,  that Canada should not become a purchaser of  these rich ores and a smelter of them in conjunction with her own silver and lead. Up till  now the smelters have only offered the miners  London prices for the metals in their ores, less  freight, insurance, etc., to an English port, and  have had to charge high smelting rates from the  heavy cost of labor and fuel. It is self-evident-  that lead or other metals can be brought to  Montreal cheaper by ship from England than  they can be brought by the C. P. R. from British Columbia, and they have claimed that there  was no local market to speak of in British Co-,  lumbia* Owing to the enterprise Of the C. P.  R. this state of affairs is now altered, as by their  Pacific line of steamers to Japan and China the  market of the east can be more cheaply reached  by the product of British Columbia mines than  any other route. The consumption in China of  lead of for lining tea chests alone amouuts to  nearly 10,000 tons per annum, and there is no  reason why large manufactories of white and  red lead should not be erected on the coast, and  even India and Australia supplied by the manufactured article. It will be found too that the  California market will prove a profitable one,  '"hotwitfe^ which is paid by the  consumers, and not by the producers. It must  be boi ne in mind that the China market is a peculiar one, and great care should be taken to  have the lead pigs of the same size and quality  as those to which they are accustomed. In this  article I have dwelt particularly on the Slocan  camp as it is the newest and least known; but  the whole country is teeming with mineral  wealth, and development is not confined to this  district. The Slocan camp promises, even now,  in its infancy, to become a very large ore producer, judging from the prospects already  found, and doubtless many more and equally  good locations will be discovered, and from the  high silver content of the lead, it should take  rank as one of the largest silver producing  camps in the world. Many disappointments  will undoubtedly occur, but I have every confidence that there will be in time several silver  mines of world-wide repute, if they are properly  developed and judiciously worked, and I trust  that Canadians'will reap the profits.  There are several other very promising new  mines in the Kootenay district, of which I may  particularly mention the Tarn O'Shanter, owned  by Montreal parties, and since the date of my  visit I have received word of several most promising prospects having been found.

BOGLE &* WHALLEY, Proprietors.  ot (SprinjB. <������������tojSL  0 MINING   LAW   REFORM.  So far, our criticism of the mining   law has  had to do with defects in the provision made  for staking  and recording claims.   But there  are also not less material defects in that part of  the law which regulates the surveying of claims,  and the applications for certificates of improvement.   According to law the surveyor is only  required to make a plat of a mineral claim as  defined by its own posts.   But a claim  is often  very much limited by the rights of prior locations round about it.   And, in the case of overlapping claims, a portion of land which belongs  by right to a prior, may be patented under a  later location.   It will be a very delicate question whether, in such a case, the crown grant  can be set aside in favor of the prior location,  or whether the advertisement of the patentee's  intention to apply for a crown grant, does not  finally exclude any adverse claimant, who does  not bring his claims forward within 60 days of  the advertisement's appearing.    It requires no  prophet's veil to foresee that this point will be  fought out at great expense, and much joy to  the lawyers,   before our section is very much  older.   Injunctions will be as thick as mosquitoes in Slocan; producing mines will be peremptorily closed down till things are settled, and  the business of the whole district will have to  wait on the delays of the law. ^   ^  It is a great relief to those interested in Toad  Mountain to know that this state of affairs cannot occur there.   There, eveiy claim, as it has  been surveyed, has been carefully defined in its  relations   to   the   surrounding  claims,   consequently, the danger from overlapping interests  is reduced to a minimum.   This is a debt which  Toad  Mountain   owes   to the experience and  thorough knowledge of the law, and of the requirements of the case, which mr. Farwell has  always brought to bear on his work.    With regard to the validity of the advertisement to bar  any  adverse claim   brought forward  after 60  days, we can only point to any of the numerous  advertisements now running in our paper, and  ask whether an advertisement, which gives no  more idea of the whereabouts of a claim  than  by defining it as in a certain  district,  and  in  many cases does not even invite adverse claimants to bring forward their claims, would bar  any bona fide claimant in  a court of equity.  Doubtless, these  precautions  are not required  by statute, but we venture to think it would be  well for the future of the Slocan country if they  weie adopted.   Bad  law is worse for a country  than low grade mineral.    If we were inclined to  be historical, we might point to countries and industries which have been paralysed by the laws  whicli regulated them.   But what we want to do  at present, is to rouse the people of this country  to a sense of the parlous confusion   in which  mining must be involved if reform is not speedy  and complete.    It requires  but little imagination to picture mines closed down,  mills at a  standstill, wagon roads deserted, and machinery  rusting, while lawyers are fighting the battles  of   adverse claimants.    Nor  is  this any fancy  picture: the danger is real and imminent,  and  can only be averted by prompt endeavors to  bring pressure on the legislature to reform the  law.  NOTICE.

(J., SEPTEMBER 21, 1892.  3il.\I.\<_   IX    EIRITISS!   i'OLlMKIi.  { CONTINUED KHOM FIRST PAGE.)  I do not refer to the well-known Toad Mountain group, which includes the Silver King, for at  the time of my visit mr. Roepel, a well-known  mining expert, was making a professional examination of the Silver King mine, and it is to he  sincerely hoped  that his report was favorahie  enough to induce the parties hy whom he was  employed to   complete   the   negotiations   and  transfer this extremely valuable property to a  syndicate or   company  which   will   have   the  means to exploit it.    Should this be done and  the working of the-mine prove a financial success, it will be the finest possible thing for ruin-,  ing i\^'Canada generally, and British Columbia  in particular.   The ore of this mine is mostly  bomtte, a sulphide of copper carrying a large  percentage of silver, and should it be treated on  the spot, the erection of concentrating and electrolytic refining works will be necessary.  These  in the United States have had the greatest financial success, and should prove equally remunerative in Canada, while the products in the  rough or manufactured would find their natural  market in China or Japan.    In other districts  there seems to be real mining activity.    John  B. Hobson  of the State mining  bureau,  San  Francisco, and perhaps the best authority on  hydraulic mining in the world, has beej_ retained  to report on the gravels of  the  Fraser  and  Thompson rivers, and has reported favorably on  them; and I understand that hydraulic mining  wilH. e commenced at once.   The platinum and  gold deposits on  the Tullameen  and Similka-  meen rivers are attracting great attention aud  some are likely to pass into the hands of powerful companies.   The same is true of the Okana-  gan and East Kootenay districts, and great developments are promised in the Boundary creek  district, where there are  very rich deposits of  copper and silver lead, aud the late discoveries  on Fish creek are* I was informed, looking well,  and some claims are being intelligently proved  under the management of inr. Fishburn.  In conclusion, I will state that never before  since the early days of the Nevada and Colorado  excitement, was there such a chance of successful mining enterprise and investment as there is  today in British Columbia, for enough has been  proved and discovered to show the presence of  the ore bodies of great extent and richness.  The C. P. R., the Dominion and the Provincial  governments are most anxious to assist the  country's development and aid private enterprise in every way by the granting of land and  the building of roads. A splendid market in  China and Japan is within easy reach, and I believe that British Columbia in a few years will  take its place as one of the largest mineral producing countries in the world.  Free (.old.  One of the most sensational and romantic  undertakings ever inaugurated by the Mexicans  is at present in progress in the city of Mexico,  and has already resulted in great success. This  work is the search that, is being made for a hidden treasure amounting in all to $20,000,000, of  which $:.,O00,{. H) was unearthed a few days ago  and turned into the. national treasury.  The locality where this great fortune was hidden was, in the days of church rule in Mexico,  known as the "Convent of Conception" second  in riches to none other in the country. The nuns  were of the richest and most prominent families,  and no expense was spared to make the convent  as luxurious and perfectly appointed as money  could do it.

When the days of the reform came, and the  new government overthrew the power of the  church party, the convent was hastily abandoned, the Mother Superior leaving behind her  however, the written record of the location of  $20,000,000 of hidden treasure. In 1861 general  Leandro Valle found $27,000 in an alcove of the  old convent, and turned the money into the  national treasury. A few years later an agent  of the government found $22,000 in the tower.  The $3,000,000 found a few days ago was ail in  gold coin and was in iron kettles and boxes buried at a depth of 4 feet under the floor of the  main foundation. The government has full  charge of the excavations being made at the old  convent, and the workmen are guarded by a  detachment of soldiers to prevent them stealing  any of the valuables that may be unearthed.  The search will be kept up until every part of  the old, massive structure and the surrounding  grounds has been thoroughly explored.  w. J. WILSON.  W. PERDUE.
