 r-O  The Mines in  Kootenay are Among  the Richest in'  America.  The Ores are  High-Grade in Gold,  Silver, Copper,  and I<ead.  NUMBER 146.  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATURDAY,   APRIL 22, 1893.  $4 A YEAR  MINERAL CLAIMS ARE TAXED  THOSE WHO HAVE CROWN GRANTS RECEIVE  MORE GOVERNMENT ATTENTION.  The Amendments to the Mineral Act This Year  Have Their Sting in The Tail���������Something Pleasant in Store for the Hapless Prospector When He  Bleaches His ftoal.  Well, there is a tax on mineral claims now.  For this piece of legislation the miners can  render thanks to Premier Davie.  When the amendment to the present Mineral  Act came up in the Legislature for its third  reading on the day previous to the prorogation  of the House the Premier introduced an amend-  pro vidtng that there shall be levied and collected from the owner or occupier of every  mineral claim of which a crown grant has  issued an annual tax of one dollar for every  acre and fractional part of an acre of land conveyed by the grant, payable on the thirty-first  day of December in each year. Such tax shall  form a charge upon the claim. In the event of  the tax not being paid to the assessor and collector he may cause the claim upon which the  tax is charged to be offered for-sale by public  auction.  Three out-and-out supporters of the .Government���������Messrs. Nason, Rogers and Watt���������are  reported as opposing the amendment, and West  Kootenay's own Mr. Kellie kept an even balance  on the fence, he being reported to have unbosomed himself by saying that he thought the  tax would be a big one to impose on whstt might  be a lot of useless land. What the mining committee wanted was a clause to tax the placer  claims  of  Cariboo  which  had been tied up for  years.  * The amendment was amended to provide for  a tax of 25 cents an acre in place of $1 on  mineral and placer claims, and it was adopted.  The bill was read a third time and passed.  REVELSTOKE ROUTE OPEN.  Captain Troup Makes the First Trip from This End  on the  lUicillewaet.  Captain Troup left on yesterday morning's  train for Robson, where he will take the steam  barge lUicillewaet and make an attempt to  reach  Revelstoke,   the Columbia   River   being  reported free of ice to the C.P.R, line.  If the trip is made all right one of the company's larger boats will be put on the Revelstoke route.  There should be big dividends in steamboating  this season, and a daily service from both ends  of the Columbia to Nelson may be looked for.  GOLD PIND AT DUNCAN.  The Maid of Erin is its Name, and the Ore Kims $23  to the Ton.  W. Simpson, one of the owners of the town-  site of Duncan, spent a few days in Nelson this  week. He reports the finding of a gold-bearing  property on the south-west corner of the town-  site, by a quartette of Irish prospectors, who  named their find " The Daughter of Erin." The  find is considered a valuable one, the ore running $23 to the ton.  J. B. Wilson, of Kaslo, and Harold Aldous,  formerly of this city, are erecting general stores  at Duncan City.  A new hotel is in course of erection. It is to  be run by W. & J. Simpson.  Mr. Simpson reports that prospectors are experiencing much inconvenience going up the  Duncan on account of log jams caused by the  floating down of saw logs cut by a logger named  Sullivan for the Buchanan saw mill.  HENDSOH AND HIS MEN  Get Up to Th^ir Weeks in  the  Chilly   Waters of the  l>uncan River.  W. Simpson, of Duncan City, who was in this  city for a few days this week, reports that E. H.  Hendsch and  his party of prospectors are having the liveliest kind of a time in their scramble ,  up the Duncan river in search of gold.  In company with three or four men  Hendsch  had  got about  fifteen   miles   up  the   Duncan ,  river, having left Kaslo on March 14. While  going across a sheet of ice on their way up  Hendsch and his men attempted to carry their  boat load of provisions, but the Kaslo pastry  was more than the ice could stand, and the  entire party was let through into the chilly  drink. The men went through up to their  neck?, but by clinging on to the boat they  managed to get out on solid ice with no more  serious consequences than a wetting.  enforcing^ customs orders  GOVERNMENT DEMANDS  THAT AMERICAN  GOODS BE ACCOMPANIED BY INVOICES  Or Else They Cannot Pass the Boundary Une on the  Kootenay���������To Avoid Difficulties the Steamers  Will IVot Carry Goods Unaccompanied hy the  Necessary Papers.    .     .  Nelson merchants who have, goods coming  into this city from United States ports will  avoid much delay and inconvenience by notifying those from whom they purchase to provide  certified invoices to accompany their goods.  George Johnstone, of the Canadian customs,  has been in this city for the past few days  awaiting instructions" regarding the enforcing  of the customs regulations;. /This, followed by  the announcement of the Columbia & Kootenay  Navigation Company officials, that their boats  will not allow UnitedStat.es goods unaccompanied by certified invoices, to be taken on  board their boats, would seem to indicate what  these instructions have been.  The enforcing of such regulations are necessary, as there 'are. no bonded warehouses in  which goods without invoices could be istored,  but any inconveniences may be overcome by  Nelson and Kootenay Lak^ merchants notifying  those from whom they buy American goods  that such goods must be accompanied by certified invoices.  A port of entry at Nelson would obviate all  these inconveniences. It is bound to come when  the railways commence operating, but if the  Federal Government representatives had any  backbone about them it would have been here  now.   CONTRACTOR   LARSON   ARRIVBSS.  Contractor Larson of the N. & F. S. arrived  this afternoon and immediaiely set out to confer  with his engineers. He and his party consisting  of A. C. McLean, R. B. Porter, S. R. Canfield,  and James McColl, are registered at  the  Phair.  Arrivals at the Nelson hotel to-day :���������James  Delaney and wife, New Denver ; Thos. Mulvey,  Slocan City; P.E.Nelson, Tekous ; M. de la  Haye, Robson ; G. C. Hamer, Colville ; J. E.  Williams, Kingston, Onl.; G. W. Maurice,  Revelstoke ; Fred. Donald, Regina ; Fred. C.  Allan, Beaver Creek ; A. C. Att, Vancouver.  WHAT A CHARTER IS WORTH  WHEN A  LIVE COMPANY WISHES TO PURCHASE IT AND CARRY IT OUT.  The Kaslo-Slocan Railway Company is Reported to  Have Asked the Modest Sum of $300,000 for a  Charter Which the Provincial Legislature Presented Them With a Short Time Ago.  If all that one hears could be taken for Gospel  there is one thing in West Kootenay which  pays better than high grade mines, town lots or  newspapers, and that is a  Government   " pull."  Not long since the Provincial Legislature  granted a charter to Messrs. Ewen & Hendry to  build a railway known as the Kaslo-Slocan railway. It was generally known at the time that  a live company was desirous of entering the  same district as that mentioned in the Kaslo-  Slocan Company's charter, and now it falls out  that the other company's desire to enter the  district formed the chief value of the charter  secured  by  the promoters of the Kaslo-Slocan  railway. *  The Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway had a  like petition before the Provincial Legislature,  so it was necessary for the Kaslo-Slocan outfit  to get a move on and make a show at railroad  building. The ruse was successful, and the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard application for a charter was refused. -v  The unsuccessful applicants made overtures to  Mesers. Ewen & Hendry for the purchase of  their charter, and it is said they offered $100,000  for the costly piece of paper.  In reply they received notification that $20,000  had been spent under the charter, and that it  would become the property of the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard railway upon the payment of  $200,000.  This modest offer wTas refused, the inference  no doubt being that D. C. Corbin considers the  price a trifle high.  A collection of all the charters issued for railroads which will never be built would form an  interesting feature in the Provincial museum at  "Victoria.  '        ARTHUR   DICK   IN   TOWN  He Returns to Nelson  After Having Made the Run  Hown the Slocan.  Arthur Dick arrived back from New Denver  this afternoon, accompanied by James Delaney,  having made the  trip down the Slocan river to  the crossings in thirteen hours.      The start was  made yesterday morning at (5.30 and the journey  was thrilling enough to satisfy the most adventurous.  When notified of his good fortune he explained that the deceased Miss Dick was related  to him by adoption only. He computed the  money which would likely become his as between $250,000 and $200,000.'  He will probably leave for the East in a few  days.   This Afternoon's Gossip.  A bunch of commercial travellers were the  first to make the trip this season by way of  Revelstoke. There were about two dozen of  them on this afternoon's train.  The C. &. K. train had upwards of fifty passengers this afternoon.  L. J. Cross, of Vancouver, formerly of Winnipeg, arrived in town this afternoon.  Jacob Dover, of Hunt & Dover, jewellers, returned to Nelson this afternoon.  Fred. C. Allan, formerly of Tekous, a new  arrival, will open a paper hanging and painting  business next week. zm-.  ^vf=^S^-_^^^?,lJ^f_/WJ/^*>r^^���������*',**'���������'  ''minrfJnr'^M iiu__j.rj*1)."i^  ^X"^TJ3S!IM"-jat3������; Sti_-������rB3������l������W2W.SM^.Xa5a������.BA*SX.

Co., Nelson, B.C  THEY RUN INTO MANY EARS  SUCH IS  THE COUKSE   0E  OONFIDENTIAL  MESSAGES OYEE THE TELEPHONE LINES  Under the Present Arrangements the Company Cannot Cneclt the Practice. Since it Cannot Regulate  the Ethics of the Entire Population of West  Kootenay���������Will it Pay to String another Wire ?  Those who have occasion to use the telephone  in transacting business between this city and  Kaslo complain that the secrecy of the service  is repeatedly violated, and that messages which  should be treated as altogether confidential  become public property a few minutes after  their transmission over the wires.  The vein of curiosity is so strongly marked in  the natures of some people that when they hear  the call bell ringing they cannot withstand the  temptation of taking down the drum of the  nearest telephone and listening to the conversations meantGfor other ears.  The officials of the telephone company cannot,  it is true, regulate the ethics of tneir subscribers  and the population of West Kootenay at large,  but they cannot fail to be alive to the damage  which such practice does to their property.  When it becomes generally known that during  the transmission of a-business message from  Nelson to Kaslo a dozen ears may be glued to as  many telephones, and that confidential messages  are being poured into as many brains, business  men may hesitate and be somewhat shy of the  very instrument which was placed within their  reach to facilitate business dealings between the  two cities.  The people of West Kootenay do not expect a  telephone service equal to that of New York,  but it might be worth the telephone company's  while to cheat the morbid curiosity of those  who steal confidential messages, by stringing a  wire to be used solely for the transmission of  through messages.  ANOTHER NEW TOWN.  This One Rejoices in the Name of Say ward, and lias  a Rright Future Before It.  The Town of Sayward, located opposite Fort  Sheppard, on the Columbia River, about two  miles north of the Pend d'Oreille river, is the  latest candidate for favor with real estate speculators.  It is owned by the West Kootenay Land  Company and presents a most inviting appearance. The owners contemplate putting in a,n  esplanade along the river front from 100 to 150  feet wide, and the townsite is to be surveyed so  as to make the avenues 100 and 150 feet wide,  streets 80 feet wide, alleys 20 feet, and the building lots 30x110. A. E. Hodgins, of this city,  will leave on Monday to carry out the survey.  This point will be the supply station of the  southern end oi the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  railway during construction.  The steamer Columbia landedaload of contractor's implements there on Thursday, and there  are many tons of the same still awaiting shipment.

There are many in Nelson who do not favor  having an hospital, which should he a public  institution, managed by any other than a public board.  Those who hold this view are certainly correct, but they cannot expect two oi three  citizens to , play the good Samaritan for an  entire district. If they wish to see a public  hospital opened in Nelson they must be prepared to bear their proportionate share of the  burden.  No sane person will venture to breathe one  word of condemnation against that sisterhood  into whose hands it has been proposed to commit the conduct of the proposed Nelson hospital. Those wearing the garb of that order have  long been welcome visitors to the bedside of the  sick and dying, and their constant attention  has won for them the respect, if not the reverence, of all.    Their management of such institutions cannot be impeached, but the people of West  Kootenay have no right to shoulder upon them,  however willing they may be to assume it, a  duty which is clearly that of the municipality.  It is West Kootenay's burden, and with the  proposed Government grant in view, by West  Kootenay it should be assumed.  THE NEW BUREAU.  The provision made by the Provincial Legis-.  lature for   the   establishment  of a Bureau  of  Labor Statistics has had the effect of drawing  as many applicants as " 'lasses does flies."  A. B. Gray, a merchant of Victoria, who was  among those hardy gold-seekers in the palmy  days of Golden Cariboo, is regarded as the dark  horse. He is a first-class mathematician, a  discriminating collator, and is also possessed of  a good level business head. Should he secure  the appointment he will no doubt prove a fitting  head for a much-needed department.  USE THE SECRET BALLOT.  At the next meeting of the South Kootenay  Board of Trade, the members will doubtless  be called upon to elect officers for the term of  six months or one year*  The  welfare of  the  Board  will be best conserved  if such election  is conducted by ballot.  It is of the utmost importance that such a Board  should comprise the clearest-sighted men in the  "community.  In a district like West Kootenay, with no incorporated towns, many matters which under  different conditions would receive the attention  Of municipal councils, must claim the attention  of the members of the Board of Trade, and it is  therefore manifestly important that the men  best fitted for the offices should be chosen.  If the system of open balloting is pursued  names of men who.__dp.not wish the office, and  men altogether unqualified to discharge the  duties of such offices, may be placed before the  meeting and these men duly eleted, since men  as a rule do not care to openly depreciate nominations which they are certain will not tend to  further the interests of an institution, lest they  should unwittingly give offence.  TAX ON'MINERAL CLAIMS.  Those who pick up a newspaper and from  time to time read accounts of prospectors striking it rich no doubt imagine that the easiest  road to wealth is by prospecting for minerals.  If they had any idea of the number who fail  . in their efforts to tear riches from Mother Earth  they would probably change their minds. The  hardships and trials which these men endure  are seldom given to the public. They are  great, indeed, but presumably the Provincial  Government does not consider them sufficiently  so, as its latest move has been to yearly tax  mineral claims on which a Crown grant has  been issued twenty-five cents per acre, unless  improvement to the extent of $200 are made  yearly.  There are many thousands of prospectors.  There are few who find. Those who do find  invariably work hard for their reward, and in  many cases, having to depend on their day's  labor for the necessities of life, they can ill  afford to yearly do $200 worth of improvements  on claims which have an uncertain value.  The amendment will no doubt tend to force  the development work of British Columbia's  mineral resources, but it will do so at the expense of the unfortunate prospector, since being  unable to do the necessary development work  he will be obliged to take what he can get from  capitalists for his prospect, and the amendment  will strengthen the hands of the purchaser and  weaken those of the prospector.  The last clause but one of the Mineral Act  might have called for something from Mr.  Kellie, but it did not. It reads :���������Every Crown  grant hereafter issued of a mineral claim shall  convey only the right to the use and possession  of the surface of such claim for the purpose of  getting out of the claim the minerals contained  therein, including all operations connected  therewith, or the business of mining, and the  lawful holder by record of a claim shall, during  the continuance of his record, be entitled to the  same surface rights and no others ; and all  remaining surface rights shall be deemed to be  vested in the Crown, and may be granted and  disposed of as is provided by the land laws for  the time being in force, but subject, always, to  the rights of free miners as aforesaid.  The amendments to the Mineral Act come  into effect on May 15.  CURRENT COMMENTS.  There should be a fair-sized scramble now for  the office of Supervisor of Mining Improvements.    Arthur Dick will have more friends now than  he ever preamed that he had, and will be known  as Mr. Dick.   There was a semblance of a kick in Victoria  when it was announced that the Dominion  Government had chosen the Canada Western  hotel site for the new Government buildings. A  correspondent in the Victoria Times explains  the reason of the choice. Col. Prior, M.P., is  said to be a shareholder in the great hotel company which never materialized.  By the Railway Aid bill recently put through  the Legislature the,__Lieutenant-Governor-in-  Council is authorized, subject to provisions set  forth, to guarantee four per cent, interest for  twenty-five years on bonds not to exceed $25,000  per mile, on the Nicola Valley Company. On  the Nakusp & Slocan bonds four per cent, is to  be guaranteed upon a; sum not exceeding $925,-  000 for twenty-five years.  KS HOTEL  E. 0. GAKPENTEB, Manager.

There is Every Reason to Believe tlaat Victoria will  Wave a Rusy Swbiiimci*.  From Our Own Correspondent.  VVith the return of spring the Capital is  beginning to look lujpre cheerful. Tourists are  commencing to travel, and work, it is hoped,  will shortly commence on the new Quarantine  station, the Postoffice, and the Victoria and  Sj'dney railway. The proposed site for the  postoffice, near James Bay bridge, does not  meet with universal favor. Some $60,000 has  been spent here in excavation by a proposed  hotel company, but from various reasons that  project fell through.  The anthracite coal lands in Queen Charlotte  Islands are likely to be developed in the "near  future. Some capitalists from Portland went  up lately with the. avowed intention of doing  business if the prospects are as stated, and there  is reason to believe they are.  The Dominion Government have wisely decided, if. the matter can be arranged amicably,  to induce the Indians resident on the reserve,  within the city limits of Victoria, to move to  some more suitable place. At present the reserve is an eyesore, and affords too great an  opportunity for Chinese and the lowest class of  whites to supply them with spirits at a large  profit to themselves.  The well-known face of Captain N. Fitzstubbs  is missed by many friends.in Victoria.  Old California Forty-Niners and Cariboo  Fifty-Bighteis will be glad to hear that Jake  Mundorf. is rapidly recovering from a serious  operation performed at the Jubilee hospital.  Jake intends taking a trip to Kootenay this  year and will probably meet lots of his old  friends.  The Victoria Jockey Club's Queen's birthday  meeting on May 25, 26 and 27 will be a success  this year. Lots of horses from the Sound, Portland and Sail Francisco have been entered, ii  ; is~hppedi that Spokane horses will be represented, and that our. Kootenay friends; who  intend coming down for the celebration will  pick out many a winner. They can combine  business with pleasure, by demonstrating'to the.  large number of wealthy travellers who will be  in Victoria during the race week the wonderful  natural resources of the Kootenay district.  Getting Rid of Tlieis* Gnns.  Since  the Customs' officers have been levying  an  assessment  on   shooting   irons   carried  by  incoming strangers  there is quite a market for  second-hand revolvers  at Bonuer's  Ferry and  Northport, the two jumping-off places into the  Kootonay country. Colorado, California and  Montana miners are realizing that this is a  country where the man with the gun is in  greater danger than the man who only shoots  with his mouth.  An enterprising Southern scientist has at last  hit upon a scheme to destroy the fears of those  fallacious scientists  who  have proven to their  own satisfoction that this world is going up in  smoke. He is endeavouring to organize a company for the purpose of establishing a huge  water works system that will pump up water  and pour a continuous stream down the crater  of one of the volcanoes.

It is situated on the north end of Trout Lake,  in the famous Lardeau country, which is going to be  one of the richest mining regions in America. Numerous  rich claims have been found close to this townsite,  which  will make it the distributing point for an  immense tract of country.   It is the only level land on  the north end of the lake. The owners intend to expend  money on streets and other improvements in the spring.  The  trail  from  Lardeau City, on Arrow Lake, to  Lake runs through this townsite.

C, is  To the Richest Mines in West Kootenay District, situated on Fish Creek, North  of Lardeau City, and in the Lardeau Pass, Southeast of Lardeau. The Mines are  reached by Trail from Lardeau, which is naturally the distributing point tor  supplies, and the shipping point for ore from these Rich Mining Fields.  Now on sale at the office of the undersigned. The terms are reasonable, and there is  every reason for stating that a handsome profit will be realized on all lots purchased at  present prices. Arrangements have been made for the clearing of a portion of the,  Townsite for the erection of hotel and stores, and for various other improvements, so  that Lardeau City will build up. rapidly in the early spring Lardeau City is the  entrance point for the Lardeau Pass, which reaches through to the head of Kootenay  lake and application has already been made for a charter to build a railway from  Lardeau City to lake Kootenay and Nelson. Lardeau City is not a town competing  with several other points in the same district. It is naturally the best point for supplying the surrounding mining country, and there is a brighter prospect for it to-day  than there was for Kaslo a year ago.

S. Barnard,   outlining  the com-  pany's  intentions  for the  future.    It   may  be  interesting and is appended :  Editor The Miner:  Dear Sir,���������Regarding Kelson Water Works.  It is only owing to an unfortunate train of  accidents that our w*ater works system at Nelson have given such dissatisfaction.  Mr. Hodgins left, no doubt after he supposed  that the severe weather for the winter was  over, without leaving anyone authorized to  repair any accident which might occur, and he  has been away fully two months, longer than I  expected.  The company have both sufficient confidence  in Nelson's future and funds enough to pufc the  works at once in good repair. They will also  have competent engineers report upon an enlarged supply and improved system, so that the  residents will be perfectly satisfied with the service which will be afforded them before long.  I have only returned from Ottawa, or the  matter would have received my attention,  before. Yours truly,  F. S. Barnard.  Victoria, April 13. 1893.  When the work of improving the service?  begins in earnest it might be a good thing if the  company took some steps to make their water .  mains less inviting to Jack Frost. It is a safe  gamble that the pipes will freeze every winter  if they are  not  better protected from the frost.  MERCHAN  Baker street, Nelson, B. C.

The result of the present canvass will altogether determine whether Nelson will have an  hospital or not, and it will also determine  whether the hospital, in the event of one being  established, will be a public institution managed  by a public board, or whether the management  of it will revert to the Sisters of the Catholic  church.  In  the past  those  in  want   in  Nelson   have  always  had the  sympathetic  hand of charity  extended to them, but invariably the charities  have depleted the bank account's of two or three  citizens reputed for their largeness of heart.  These same men are now interested in the  hospital scheme, and as they do not wish to  shoulder the whole responsibility of carrying on  a hospital for the general good of the people of  West Kootenay, a suggestion that the hospital  be turned over to the Roman Catholic Sisters of  Charity has met with considerable approval.  Should  the genaral public   respond  as they  should  it will  not   be necessary  to  allow the ;  management of what should be a public institu- :  tion revert into private hands.  The  maintenance  of a  hospital requires the ;  co-operation  of the  public at large,   and   the ;  citizens of West Kootenay have  no reason nor  right to expect that two or three merchants in  Nelson, whose shrewdness in commercial enterprises  has secured  for them   the reward they  earned,   will  engage   to  individually   meet the ;  deficits of an institution for the public good.  LITTLE LOCAL CHAPTERS.  In   Which   Everyone   is   Made Acquainted with the  Movements ol" Everybody Else.  John Elliott left for Kaslo this morning.  R. E. Lemon took .a run up to Kaslo this week  H. F. Hubbard and Marion Aubury, the Kaslo  assayers, were in town last week.  E. C. Carpenter and  C. Hugonin were down  from Carpenter's Forks this week.  Oliver T. Stone and W.. M. Newton have been  appointed J.P.'s for W7est Kootenay.  Isaiah Stevenson leaves this week to spend  the summer prospecting on the hills.

The South Kootenay Board of Trade, in its  efforts to please everybody, may probably end  in pleasing no one.  The desire on the part of its members to give  the merchants and business men of Kaslo and  other places representation on the Council  prompted them to cause all the Board's officers  to tender their resignations on Monday, when  their places were to be filled by those chosen at  the meeting set for that day.  The'meeting came off in good time, and the  Kaslo people attended,  but they had not made  up their minds about becoming members of the  Board, so the South Kootenay Board of Trade  is in exactly the same position as it was a week  ago.  By resolution all officers elected oh Saturday  last were required to tender their resignation  on Monday, and had the members accepted  such resignations before finding out that the  people from the Lake district had not decided  about affiliating themselves with the Board, it  might have been difficult to get a meeting  together, as there would have been no officers  to convene it.  As it was the resignations were left  in  abey-t,  ance, so the Board is not yet without a head.  The Board will convene within a week, when  the good people of Kaslo will have made up  their minds whether thev will become members  or not.   Assay on the Lardo Find.  Hubbard  & Aubury  have made an assay on  the piece of float and ledge found by T..T. Davies  near Lardo. The float went 365 ounces and the  ledge sample 36^ ounces.

Wrhen you meet Arthur Dick congratulate  him, because the chances are that he is one of  the wealthiest men in West Kootenav.

For some weeks the deceased lady's  condition was not critical; and the end was not  expected.

The deceased was an aunt of Arthur Dick, and  by her death Arthur will come into a tidy  $250,000. He is now in New Denveiy and it is  likely that he" will soon bid farewell to the  seamy side of life as experienced in the West,  for the enjoyments of the East.
