The story of the famous treasure of the **Ma-
d e d'Oro " is an  old one.    It comes from the
Aztecs of Mexico.    Somewhere in southeastern
Arizona there is a small valley, about 5 miles
long and 2 miles wide, walled in  by towering
mountains.   The sides are so precipitous that it
is impossible to climb down them, and there is
only one entrance, through a cave,  which  is
carefully  hidden  hy  Indians,   who guard   the
treasure for the second coming of Montezuma.
It is said that even among them the entrance is
only known  to the 3 most aged men, and is
never communicated except when, on the death
of one,- it  is  necessary to give the knowledge
into the keeping of another.    The valley itself,
though surrounded by inhospitable rocks, is at
paradise.    Watered by the stream which flows
through it, its soil is covered with flowers and
beautiful trees, through the branches of which
flit bright lined birds. The only reptiles seen
are the gold snakes, with their glittering greenish yellow scales; , ,
Stretching across the valley froni one side to
the other is a ledge of pure gold, its? masses of
virgin metal gleaming and glistening in the
sunlight. It is said to be 5 feet, 10 feet, 50 feet,
100 feet wide. Tlie gold lies in it in great veins
and nuggets, imbedded in clear quartz, the
sharp angles of which glitter in the sunlight
like gigantic diamonds. Across the ledge the
stream"flows, forming a little waterfall, below,
which the nuggets of gold can be seen in the
water and out." Gold in the ledge, gold in the
scales of snakes, gold in the stream, gold in the
birds���gold, gold, gold, gold���is the refrain of
the golden story.
The fearful precipices which surround the
place, the strange ceremonies and horrid banquets which have served to keep the secret safe,
the tribe of Aztecs, living only to preserve for
theii mysterious rider this treasure house of
nature, have all aided in giving to the story its
strange interest. Small wonder is it that the
pui'se��should quicken and tire eye grow bright
as you hear,the tale from the lips of men who
more than half believe it. The lonely desert
surrounding you, with the tall cacti looking
like ghosts in the half moonlight; the long
drawn'-melancholy'''of the coyote's howl, the
prospector's fire of grease wood, the men with
their, roitgh clothing and quaint language, all
vanish as voii listen; and in imagination you
are' transported to the wonderful valley in
which is the " Madre d'Oro," the   " Mother of
Nor are thev content to tell the story of an
Indian legend; They cite instances of white
men who have seen tlie place, who have descended into the vallev in some way and returned
with all the gold they could carry. Tbe location
of the spot/is always-"in'" a."'dangerous Indian
country. I have been told t wire that it was in
the Chireahua mountains. It is always said to
have been found' merely' by accident by men
who were' either bunting or. prospecting for
ledges, about the only 2 occupations which will
make unscientific . men men climb the mountains. It can only be seen from the upper end
after the morning mists in the valley have
eleared awav. Then, as one stands on the rug-.
e-ed peaks and looks down; he sees the great
ledge spanning the valley below him, the virgin
metal glittering in the sunlight, and he knows
that lie has before him the place of which he
has heard so much and dreamed so often.
The legends of lost mines of fabulous wealth
in Pima county are almost numberless, and it
might be truthfully added, general mythical.
The old timers can tell of t hem by the hour, and
a few persons have been shown glittering evidences in confirmation of the wonderful tales
reluctantly recited with superstitious dread of
the consequences of their perfidy by almost superannuated Indians and Mexicans.
That the precious metals were mined on a-gigantic scale- in the dim past the manv remaining evidences already discovered fully verify,
yet the investigation of those that chance'has
revealed has seldom proved financially Successful. Old arrastres, covered with the decay of
centuries, and crude smelting furnaces that
have almost returned to the dusty destiny of all
matter, speak of industries once in active
Operation that history and even aboriginal tradition fail to mention.
f    Some of the traditions told sound like fairy
- tales,  and one, however skepticai, cannot hilt
become deeply interested in their recital.
"Speaking of old mines/' said an old mining
man, "I have spent a good deal of 0time and
money in hunting up clews, and one mine was .
actually found, and I can go to it at any time.
Out in the Silver Bell country I can take you to
a mountain so full of tunnels and shafts that, if
they were in good condition, you could travel
through all day long and lipt reach the end.
" A number of old timers have visited it, andtl
judging from the vast work done there so long
ago, they concluded that a great mine of some
kind had existed there, which had likely been
worked out. Many times has it been located,\
and though its walls, roof and floor were care-'.
fully scanned and :sampled; the result, while
showing some gold* was discouraging, assays
showing from a trace up to, several dollars per<
ton;     ��� ������ ���' '...*-.���"
"Many years ago I talked with an old.Papa-
go Indian, with whom I was. 6ri very friendly
terms, having often extended him little favors,
about the gold and silver mines;  In a burst of J
confidence he told me that a great ma,ny years ,'
ago, when he was a very small boy, the Indians
at San Navier del Buc made Weekly trips to a o
very rich gold piine.   On Saturday night they
returned with the products of their toil.   The
priest  in  charge  of the mission   kept a small
table in front of the altar, covered with a white
cloth, upon which the pious toilers placed their
metallic offerings to the church.
" This table was covered with golden nuggets
varying in size from a pea to one's fist; and it
was a rich sight. After the usual service the
priest would descend, and as he picked up each
precious piece he would proclaim the name of
the donor .and. afterward would call them forward to receive the special blessing of heaven.
On the? following Monday they would again
take lip their march in a northwesterly direc-
tion for the inines, and for a very long time
this was repeated, until the priests were driven
out of the country, when they abandoned mining entirely. '
44 The, old Indian had one time gone with the
miners, who followed'a well beaten trail toward
the Silver Bell country, and he saw tberii take
out the gold. He agreed to show me the place,
and out of.curiosity I sent a man with hini one
day.- They went out to the old mine I have
spoken of the Silver Bell country, and, when
thev readied a certain gulch the Indian pointed
to the top of a mountain and said he would find
a shaft there, covered with cat claw bushes, out
of which the most gold .was", taken. The..man
found everything just as the old Indian told
him, hut long disuse had filled up the shaft until it was nearly full. ���
"On returning, the Indian could not be found.
He had gone ahead and was not- met for several
days. He then said he dare not show the mine
to the white people, and protested that he did
not show it for fear the great spirit would take
his life. He said the white man had found it,
but he did not show it. I visited-, the mine afterward, but the work necessary to clean out. the
shaft was too great and too expensive to undertake, and it has never been touched."

The outside press, animated by we know not  what spirit of jealousy and criticism, and relying on the rumors and reports about the Slocan  country, spread   by   disappointed   prospectors  .and others, has apparently united to give it a  black eye.   The Spokane Miner, in particular,  has an article on the country which is a most  curious mixture of truth and falsehood, sound  ad vice and self-contradictory drivel. It begins by  saying that " t he great predictions and alluring  promises in regard to the rich strikes that were  reported from  this camp last year   have unfortunately riot materialised.^   Probably it aL  hides'to the gigantic fables which were circulating around, the saloons and street corners of  Spokane last winter,  and which the* Spokane  press dished up to its readers as historical facts.  "Subsequent events have   fully   justified   the  views expressed hy The Miner last winter."   We  do not know what those views were aud reallv  they cannot have been very important, as the  article admits they were based on complete ig-  ,  norance of the facts.    But we will say that subsequent  events have  more than justified the  views   expressed    by    the    "News    and'    by  ,    everyone, who knows anything of; what they  were talking drj writing about.    The snow has  been   gone from the Slocan country.about 4  weeks.    What*   has  happened   in  that   time?  Jim Ward ner, who was, its usual, the first to get  lo work, has, in 4 weeks, taken out the value of  what he paid for the Freddy Lee in solid ore.  He maintains it is the greatest  mine in  the  greatest country iii the world.    Messrs. Burke  and Garrison  have bonded the Blue Bird,   a  claim discovered this month, for $25,000, and do  not hesitate to say that anyone who decries the  Slocan country  must   do   so   from   interested  motives.    Dr. Kilbpurne of Seattle, has bonded  the Lucky Jim group for $40,000 and set 12 or 14  men to work.    Mr.  Jefferson has begun work  on the Washington, and swears by the country.  Numerous other claims have been bonded arid  sold,   all in 4 weeks.    Twenty-three thousand  dollars has been raised by private subscription ������  to build a wagon road from Kaslo, so as to ship  ore.    And  the -mining season is 4   weeks old.  We do not know what the Spokane press ex-  pejted,  hut that is good enough for us;   The  conclusion  of  the article from which we have  quoted contradicts the rest of it, and for that  reason, among others,  may  be taken as sound  vj.,gospel..   "Much    work,"',  says    the   Spokane  Miner, "will have to be done to give the camp  the  prestige "to-.'which    it   aspires."    Perfectly"  true.    Work, and work  only "Is.required..  The  mineral is there;., it only needs to be taken out,  "and the future of the camp'-depends now on the  energy,   industry   and   push   of   its  founder's.  .Work is the only thing that will make a country.    Tap-room talk and whiskey��������� swilling will  never do  it.    Let the boys get out and rustle  and Slocan is-bound to  become a country famous iri the annals of mining, and that within a  short space of time.  THE   NEW   DENVER    SALE.  The sale of town lots at New Denver shows  conclusively that the Slocan country has backers   who are  not afraid to stay with it.    Con  fidence in the Slocan is the last thing wanting  among the people who know the least thing  about it. Amid the various and conflicting  rumors, optimistic and reverse, from /which  mining camps suffer, the price of-real estate is  a fair test of the general feeling in regard to  them. Real estate in itself is not a source of  wealth, but It is a 'barometer which tells witli  tolerable certainty how the weather sets. And  that barometer is in the Slocan country pointing fixedly to "set fair."  J. A. KIRK  S: P. RITCHIE  J  KIRK & RITCHIE  Dominion    and    Provincial    Land  Surveyors.

THE   WORLD'S   F.4IK.  Professor Saunders, executive commissioner  of the World's Columbian exhibition for the  Dominion, is in Winnipeg making arrangements for the creditable representation of  Canada's resources in Chicago next year.  Having this work entirely under his charge, he  is visiting the different provinces for the purpose of interviewing the various governments  and endeavoring to excite as warm an interest  as possible in tbe enterprise, so as to secure a  complete series of exhibits from every province,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  IRON  WORKS,  General   Founders^  Engineers,   Boiler   Makers,   and   Manufacturers  of All  Classes of Machinery.    Sawmill and Marine W >rk a Specialty.  SOLE   MAlSlFUTf KEK8   OF   THE  Mill, B. C. Shingle Machines, Steam  Log Hauling Machines.  Band  He calls attention t*> the fact that the Dominion  government offers to pay transportation charges  of all exhibits to Chicago and return; also to  provide the necessary caretakers to look after  the exhibits and keep them in presentable shape  throughout the 6 months of the exhibition.  The co-operation of the provinces is asked, for  several reasons. It is believed that they will be  benefitted by taking up the work energetically,  also that they can do better work in many departments than could possibly be done by the  Doiuinion, as their local organizations enable  them to reach the farmers and others who will  provide the 'materials.  About 1(10,000 square feet of space altogether  has !>eeh secured. Of this 10,000 f<*et will be al-  loted for the government building; 10,000 feet  foi\the mineral products; 4000 feet for- the forestry building, in which the various timbers  will be exhibited; 20,000 feet for the building  for manufactures; and smaller areas in a number of other buildings will be allot ed for various  other purposes.  The eastern provinces, professor Saunders  says, are, taking active steps now to bring together representative exhibits in all the departments in which they are, severally interested, and his object in visiting the west is to do  the same for the western provinces as is being  done for the eastern ones, namely to make provision for their exhibits in a manner satisfactory  to the provinces themselves and the whole  country. It is proposed to erect a Canadian  building as a place of rendezvous for the Canadian people, at a cost of $20,000;' and the provinces are asked to assist in this work on the  basis of the Dominion government paying one-  half the cost, and the provinces dividing the  other -half amongst' thetti. Ontario is contributing $IW>; Quebec, $2000; Nova Scotia,  $1000; and proportionate amounts are expected  from the .western provinces. These contributing provinces will he entitled to expect office  accommodation for their own representatives,  and people from Canada every where will be  welcome to the -.'public use of the building.  There will be a large inception room provided  with a postoflice, vvhere Canadian papers will  he on file. The building will lie so constructed  outside as.to afford ample verandah accommodation ; hence, when "the reception room is overfilled, people .can meet on the piazzas and discuss with' their."friends' the different featu res of  the exhibition and thus make the reception  roomasortofhomelikepla.ee.  mini it\l < iims in:<oinii.n xsn tim\sfkkkki>  AT  AINSWOKTH.

Captain Rucllin, of the Yosemite, in spite of  all opposition, quietly landed all his passengers  on the mainland.

Already the stringent regulations adopted for  the prevention of the spread of smallpox is having its effect, there being a decided and noticeable decrease in the number of new cases reported, as will be seen from the official'report of  provincial health officer dr. J. C. Davie. The  city cases which were moved out to the Jubilee  quarantine hospitable are all receiving the best  possible attention.

John Fielding, P.L.S., is surveying mineral  claims in the vicinity of Ainsworth.  Mr. Baume opened his new hotel, The Noble  Five, situate on Front street on Saturday.  aA number of specimens of gold were exhibited here froni Fry creek and Duncan river  during the past week.  There are so many purchases going on and  strikes are so frequent that mr. Sryan, the as-  sayer, is kept busy assaying night and day.  The Monte Christo on Bear creek is looking  well. Two and a half feet of solid galena has  been uncovered, assaying 100 ounces in silver  and 72 ounces lead.  H. B. Fletcher, proprietor of the Grand Pacific hotel, Kainloops, V)ho has beeu visiting his  brother   Archie   Fletcher,   proprietor   of   the  Grand Central hotel, Kaslo, left for .home Tues-  .day morning.  "Mr. Kem}3, proprietor of the mineral springs  near here, made, his first shipment of mineral  water Thursday morning to Nelson and Pilot  Bay. He says* that the demand already exceeds his present limited means of supply.  B. H. _Lee of B. H. Lee & Co. has gone to  New Denver, not for the purpose of purchasing  lots, but to convince the people there that there  are other places except Nelson and New Denver  in the Kootenay district where property can be  bought to advantage.  John R. Toole of Anaconda, chief expert of  the Anaconda Mining Company of Montana,  arrived here Tuesday evening and left for the  Montezuma claim the following morning with  a view of purchasing the same. Mr. Toole proposes visiting all the most important claims in  this district before returning to Montana.  Negotiations which have been pending for the  sale of the Lucky Jim consummated" Wednesday in the purchase of that Claim by dr. E. C.  Kilbourne of Seattle for $41,000. The doctor  left for Seattle on Thursday ...morning, but expects to return shortly to work the claim. Be-  tore leaving he offered $2000 towards the const ruction of a wagon road into the mining  country.  The Blue Bird mineral1 claim has been sold  by inessrs.������������������Thompson and Wbitten to messrs.  J. N. Burke, O. D. Garrison of the Ooeiir  d'Alenes, and E. E. Goy of this town for $25,000.  Mr. Coy left Tuesday morning for the claim  with supplies and a-force of men to -commence'  the ���������'construction of a trail up to the claim, and  he expects within a month-or.six weeks to ship  five tons per day. This claim averages' #220  per ton.  A certain gentleman who claims to be a  Mason has been .haunting this district for the  last week or ten days, and .obtaining money  under such representations. This individual  has been offered work on.several occasions, but  being afraid that the dignity of the order would  be impaired thereby, refused ,'to take it. The  party referred to has 'gone'to'Nelson and we  would like'to advise the citizens of that place  to look out.for hi ai.  _____ ________ . j  Tlie Yankee ISelic-Jf(infer.. |  "Americans are the vandals that are now devastating Europe," was the startling assertion  made by dr. Thomas Baxter a few days ago.  "They are the most indefatigable relic hunters  that are to be found in the world, and every  historic spot between the pyramids of Cheop  and the tower of London has suffered more or  less, at their hands. I verily believe that my  fellow countrymen would chip the nose from  the Venus de Medici and carry it away if they  were not watched. And the women are even  more aggressive than the men. Relic hunting  has become a craze with Americans, and manifests itself both at home and abroad. The old  chair in which Lincoln put a splint bottom has to  be kept in a wire cage to prevent relic hunters  carrying it away piece-meal."  Frederic toN  TOAD  tt<DTTJKtFJ&JXTST,.
