 w  1 tj  u  .a}-  A ."\ A   y  rilf  The Mines in.  Kootenay are Anion;  tlie Richest  in  America.  Tine Ores are  High-Grade in Gold,  Silver,  Copper,  and lead.  NUMBER 127.  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATURDAY,  DECEMBER 10,   1892.  $4 A YEAR  RAILWAY   DEVELOPMENT   OF   WEST   KOOTENAY.  We have shown with, we imagine, some appearance of reasonableness, that this country  of West Kootenay must become a collection of  scattered mining camps dependent upon the  United States for an ore market and for supplies, having no interests in common, and  but    slender    connection,    with    the    rest   of  Canada, unless the country is centralized at  some particular point and some attempt made  to develop it within itself. Our next point was  that the place marked out for such a centre, is  Nelson, and if not Nelson then nowhere. This  latter alternative is quite possible and so far as  the action, or want of it, of the C P. R. at  present is concerned, even probable. The  Boards of Trade of Victoria and Vancouver  have been awakened to this fact. They lament  the danger of the United States stealing, as they  call it, the trade of West Kootenay. Stealing  is a curious word. It was written long before  boards of trade came into existence that whatever a man sows that shall he also reap. And  if our neighbors on the Coast have sown indifference they cannot be surprised if, when the  harvest comes, they reap neglect.  And even now when their interest is aroused,  they go the wrong way about to iind a remedy.  They wish to keep the camps of West Kootenay  separated, without local centre, or distributing,  ovr    smelting    point.    The   whole  gist   of  this  series of articles has been that if  they  succeed  in doing this, as  they  easily  may, they cannot  for oue moment compete  against the States for  the trade of this  country.    In West Kootenay  we must have a centre,   a  terminus" and  a distributing point.    That   point is Nelson.    There  is no getting round   it or   over   it.    No  other  poini is there where the ways in and out   of the  whole known mining region of West Kootenay  converge, except Nelson.    It is as it has always  been in   West Kootenay,   Nelson   or  nowhere.  In this there is  no discordance with the future  or prospects  of Kaslo.    Any jealousy between  the two towns is preposterous, as their interests  are identical.    Granted that Kaslo is  the  camp  which will produce the greatest quantity of ore,  Kaslo cannot become the distributing  point for ;  Slocan Lake, for Ainsworth, for Pilot Bay, for  Goat River, for Toad Mountain; Nelson   can for  all these places, and  for Kaslo  itself,   as  well,  The prospects of the Slocan  and   the  Lardeaux  as they become richer, enhance in the same proportion the prospects before  Nelson;    The end  of the whole business is that in any railway development about to take place in   West  Kootenay, Nelson's central position.should not be lost  sight of.    It should be viewed  as  the  terminus  at which various lines will converge  and  from  which they will again  diverge.    Every  inducement should be ottered to  wholesale   men  and  smelting men to  centre  here.    It   should be remembered that the making or marring  of Nelson   means  the  making  or ��������� marring   of  West  Kootenay as an integral part of Canada.  WORK FOK THE WINTER.  George Alexander, general manager of the  Alberta and B. C. Exploration Company, was  in town on Tuesday, on business connected with  the tenders which have been called for to build  a hull, 70 feet long by 24 feet wide, to carry a  dredger for use on the Kootenay; to construct  a scow 50 x 16 feet, and to cut and deliver some  1000 cords of wood. All these jobs have to be  finished before the 1st of ..March. We are sorry  that it was not better known in Nelson that, it  was Mr. Alexander's intention to call for these  tenders, as, no doubt, many men here would  have been glad to bid for the work. The advertisement which would have called for tenders, owing to the delays in the mail service,  only came to hand late this week���������after the  date on which tenders could be received. Mr.  Alexander was much disappointed that the ad  vertisement had not been published, and has  left town to find out, we believe, if it be not  possible to extend the time, in order that local  contractors may .have a chance to compete for  the work.  Since writing the paragraph above, we have  learned from Gr A. Keefer that the fcontract for  getting out the timber, to be used in building  the hull and scow for the Kootenay reclamation  works, has been let to a firm in Bonner's Ferry.  If the contractor is able to deliver this timber  before the river freezes, the work to be done  will be completed before the 1st of May. In  any case, the company intend to have their  floating dredger at work just as soon as fate and  the river will permit them to do so. Mr. Keefer  has been to the scene of action to pay off the  men and to inspect the work already done.  Work will be resumed on the 1st of March. We  understand that the contracts for the building  of the hull and scow have been let. This is a  striking example of the evil that a delayed mail  can do. There are many men in the district,  who would have been glad to have tendered for  this work, and to these the arguments urged in  this week's editorial will be brought home with  considerable force.  MORE CAPITAL INTERESTED.  Every day brings fresh proof that WTest  Kootenay is to be pre-eminently the mining district of the world during the next year or two.  On every side we see signs that people far and  near are beginning to awaken to  the fact  that  there is money to be made in the country, and  that the sooner they get to work the sooner will  they begin to realize their profit. The Kootenay Prospecting and Supply Company, of Minneapolis���������in a former issue we have drawn attention to its existence and intentions���������have  published a prospectus asking for subscriptions  to their stock, which amounts to $5OO,.Q0O, divided into shares of $25 each, and announcing  their intention of sending out prospectors as  early as possible, next spring. The prospectus  contains the following paragraph, probably inspired by Mr. Middaugh who, it will be remembered; made so many purchases and locations  in the Slocan a couple of months ago:  "As said by a mining expert who has been in  in that country during t he past season and just  returned, 'the advantage of the mines in that  District (Kootenay) is that they will pay from  the grass down.    It is the poor man's camp'."  It with pleasure that we note that another  English company is likely to become interested  in: our mines during the coming year. The  Kootenay Syndicate, of Birmingham, has, up.to  the present time, given its attention chiefly to  East.Kootenay, out has now become convinced  that it would be flying in the face of Providence  to refuse to see the many openings which we  can offer for the judicious investment of capital.  Horace J. Cannan, who recently made a tour of  this district, has gone to England for the express  purpose of laying before this company, information which ceil hardly fail to have the desired  effect.    LARDO.  On Wednesday afternoon a party set out  from Kaslo to the new town of Lardo. The  party consisted of two townsite owners, one  surveyor, one real estate boomer and a representative of the press; this is the  usual ratio of  townsite owners to the other professions in this  country. The steamer Kaslo, with attendant  scow, was chartered for the occasion, and in its  commodious stoke hole the party defied the inclemency of the weather. It was, unfortunately,  dark when the townsite was reached, and its  advantages could not be very minutely inspected. But enough was visible to show that  it is very prettily situated at the head of navigation on Kootenay Lake, and is the terminus  of the trail into  the rapidly becoming famous  Lardo country. In additiou, some minert?l has  been found in Davies Creekjjwhich intersects the  townsite. An excursion and sale of lots will  take place to-morrow.  KASLO   NOTES.  Judge Wilson, the foreman of the works at  Lardo, is pushing things with a large force of  men. The grading of the.road to connect with  the Government trail, is well advanced and the  streets are being rapidly cleared.  A very pleasant party made a trip to Lardo  on Sunday on the steamer Kaslo, viz., Fraiik  Fletcher, C. P. R. Commissioner, A. H. Buchanan, Manager of the Bank of Montreal, and  F.M. McLeod, all of Nelson; Sam. Green, T. J.  Lehdrum   and   others.  Another excursion went out by the Ains-  worth to inspect the townsite  of  Dawson.  Next Sunday we are again promised another  excursion on the Ainsworth to Lardo, the lots  of which will be on the market on Monday  next; I hear that the first 200 lots will probably  be sold by auction, as. there are so many applications for them.  Messrs. Harold Selous and Farweli paid us a  flying visit on Tuesday, leaving by the Nelson  on Wednesday morning en route to the  Coast.  We have had quite an influx of Nelson visitors this week, in addition to those above mentioned: John Elliott, Jim. McDonald, A. E.  Hodgins, H. G. Ashby, and C. E. Perry, have  been observed. .Messrs. Ashby and Perry were  engaged in selling lots in Dawson and  Duncan.  I hear that the owners of the townsite of  Duncan, Messrs. Simpson and Keeley, are the  proud possessors of a cat which is well known  in that district. It follows them like a dog,  and when they are out shooting and a bird falls  to the gun, the cat is upon it in the twinkling  of an eye. So far, unfortunately, it has refused  to retrieve, and considers that its mission is to  devour the game. In addition to these qualifications, it is a splendid traveller and will even  take to the water if necessary. I understand  that, in spite of these traits, the cat is essentially  feminine, which shows how lirtle there is in  the arguinenti of those who oppose the full enfranchisement of women on the ground that it  will unsex them.  Building is still proceeding* here with vigor,  but things are quieter now than they were a  month or two ago, as is natural during the  depth of winter.  Messrs. Tom. E. Jefferson and Howson. have  bonded the Lardo-Duncan group of claims  owned by Messrs. Wagner, Kennedy and othors  for $30,000. These claims are on the divide between the Duncan and Lardo, and the ore  assays from 115 ozs. to to 319 ozs in silver, and  also carries "from $10 to $30 in gold.  G. W. Hughes is constructing a large wharf  at Kaslo for the shipment of ore.  SLOCAN LAKE TO THE FRONT.  Contractor  Mann  has  completed  the  sleigh  road from the head of Slocan Lake  to  Nakusp.  He claims it is the best road in the country and  says he can haul 3,000 lbs. with twohorsesover it.  He is under contract to haul out 600 tons of ore  this winter from the Vancouver, the Mountain  Boomer and the Alpha claims, all in Four Mile  Creek section. On the Mountain Boomer, the  Mahons have the highest grade claim in the  country, the ore discovered going 3,000 ozs. to  the ton. Mr. Mann says that he would be glad  to get a contract to take ore out from the Freddie  Lee to Nakusp for $25 a ton, which, he says,  would compare very favorably with the price  now paid to ship it to Kaslo. Mr. Mann is of  opinion that a railway up Slocan River would  command all the ore traffic from Slocan Lake.  He has gone to Spokane to bring in stock,  which he expects the C. & K. Steam Navigation  Company to ship for him to Nakusp.

The accession of Sir John   Thompson  to  the  Premiership will not be   a surprise to  anyone.  He has, we suspect, been  virtually  premier for  some little time. The illness of Sir John Abbott  placed upon his shoulders nearly all the burden  of the Premiership, and it is only fair that he  should now enjoy the credit that attaches to  the successful performance of its duties and that  he should wear the honors as well as bear the  responsibilities of the position,  CHARTER ASKEW FOR.  posed line from Lardeau City in a northerly  direction along the course of the Incoinappleux  River or Fish Greek to some point or points on  the main line or branch lines to any adjacent  mine or mines, and with power to build docks  and wharves, and erect and maintain telegraph  and telephone lines and all necessary works,  buildings, pipes, poles, wires, appliances or  conveniences necessary or proper for the generating and transmitting of electricity or power  within the area above described.

Everyone is kicking at the manner  in   which  the psot office authorities run their  business in  West Kootenay.   And  everyone  is right in so  doing.    Was there ever a district in the British  possessions in which  there  existed  more  post-  offices which are never troubled   by having a  mail to sort, or more mails, for people resident  in the country, that have no place  in   whichto  be sorted, than in West Kootenay ? There is no  more incompetent postoffice official  in   the universe, and this is saying a good  deal,  than he  who now holds the post of Inspector.    If  he is  not   incompetent,   he   is   negligent,   which   is  worse.    It is a scandal   that any  district,   with  our population, should be treated  as   we  are in  this respect.    When one thinks of the  matters  of vast importance which must  be  subjects for  correspondence concerning   this  district,   matters, too, of business, the success of which might  be made or marred by a day or two less or more  being taken in  the transit  of the  mail,   one is  almost surprised that  the post  office  does not  realize that it is  neglecting  its duty; and one is  altogether surprised that the people themselves  are so apathetic.      ________  For example, take the case of the east-bound  mail.    Posted in Nelson, it travels,   by way of  Little Dalles, to the coast, thence to be shipped  eastwards.    Nearly a  week  would  be saved if  this mail were shipped  to  Spokane, and there  sorted and distributed.    Of course no arrangement   exists   between   the Dominion  and  the  States which will allow this to be put into practice, and by the time that Nelson had petitioned  the Government to enter into negotiations with  America, with a view to bringing  this   method  into effect, and America had   duly  considered  the matter, and either consented to or  refused  the Dominion Government's  request,  it  would  be spring or early summer, and   in   the  rush of  business we  should have forgotten,   until  the  ensuing winter,   that  we  ever felt hot at not  getting our letters for, sometimes, three weeks  or so.   Another glaring instance of the lack of enterprise and business principle which is the  leading characteristic of our postal department,  is the manner in which mail for the American  coast towns is treated. Instead of being sorted  on the cars and sent down to its destination by  way of Mission Junction, it is carried to Vancouver, thus losing two days, at least, in transit.  /  This does not now concern us so much as in the  summer, but still, it is just as well to mention  the matter in order that, if the postoffice people  are ever struck with a sudden (and entirely unexpected) desire to reform their evil ways, they  may have some idea in which direction to work.  The agitation felt at the Coast as to the route  by which freight shall travel to and from West  Kootenay, is beginning to bear fruit in the  shape of applications for leave to build railroads.  From an advertisement, in another column, it  will be seen that the C. .'���������& K. Railway is apply;-  ing for a charter to build from its present line in  the direction of Revelstoke, asking also for  leave to build branch lines, not exceeding 30 miles  in length, from points on this connecting line.  Let them have the charter by all means, but we  would ask the Government to consider whether  it might not be well to reserve a small part of  the Pro vince for its own use, and to keep lit tie  patches of country, here and there, under its  own con t rol. We observe that another chart er  is asked for of a most comprehensive nature,  embracing, as it does, a number of privileges  sufficient to run anything from a railway to a  sawmill or an electric light system.  The Church of England mission room has,  since its erection, been almost exclusivelv used  as a church. Now, if we are rightly informed,  a sum of money was placed at the disposal of  the Bishop, in order that he might put up a  building, which was to be first a reading room,  and incidentally a place in which services might  be held. So far as we have heard, no steps have  been taken, up to the present, to carry out this  design. The winter is upon us and many will  be glad of some place in which to spend a quiet  hour or two. Let something be done with a  view to opening a reading room in this building.  C. E. Perry, M. S. Davys,  Mem. Inst. C.E., P.L.S. M.E.  J. H. Gray,  Kj.Hi.}  ST .L.O.

The 5,000  tons of ore taken out will average $20 per ton.  Hon. James Baker, ' Provincial Secretary,  writes to Mr. R. Gr. Sidley, Osooyos, B. C., that  it is his intention next session to bring in an  amendment to the Mineral Act, by which the  laying out of the boundaries of a claim will be  more clearly defined, and also it will be necessary^ for a locator to show ore in place before he  can record a claim.  A suggestion is inade, and it is a good one,  that the miners should write out their views  and forward them to the Minister of Mines, Victoria. They can reasonably expect that the  .weight of opininion, as communicated in this  way, will determine the amendments to the  Alining law to be proposed by thejGoverriment.  There is much excitement in the western part  of the State of Sonora, Mexico, over the  recent  discovery of agold mine  of fabulous  richness.  The find  was  brought about  in   a  remarkable  manner, the fortunate discoverer being Arthur  O.  Corna,  a  merchant of Altair.    About two  ���������weeks ago Mr. Corna bought a piece  of quartz  : from an Indian,^which  contained  a little   over  (six pounds of pure gold.    A few days later, the  Indian appeared again with another lot of  rich  gold-bearing   quartz    which he sold   for    $20.  Mr. Corna then offered the&India'n $30, to  show  him where the quartz had   been obtained.    The  '���������������������������".'������������������'.offer was accepted and the two went  off to the  hills, and a little way from the mine the Indian  told Mr. Corna vvhefe  to go  to see the gold for  himself.    The Indian   would, not approach the  mine, because of the tradition that any one of  the native  race showing the mine to a, Mexican  would die within a few  days.    Mr.  Corna went  ^where directed and found  the  rich  gold  mine,  ^W^ named  Teederena.    The   mine  shows  evidences of having been worked for  Centuries,  : and it is behaved to be one of the  lost  mines of  J the Aztecs.    Mr. Corna will  soon   begin   working the property on an extensive scale.  White men, who have been secretly prospecting in the Lemhi Vailey, Indian Reservation,  in Lemhi county, Idaho, ..have discovered some  wonderfully hue gold and copper ledges which  they are trying to hold until the reservation is  thrown open for" settlement. The redskins,  however, are fully cognizant of the value of the  great deposits of mineral,' and threaten to burn  the white men at the stake if they do not leave  the Indian lands. ' The gold ledges which both  the reds and the whites are so determined to  possess, are well defined, the formation being  decomposed quartz, the ore being free milling"  and unusually rich. The copper ledges are said  to be very large and valuable, it being claimed  that they are in the great mineral belt in which  Marcus Daly's famous Anaconda mine is located. The reservation will probably next, year  be thrown open to settlement after the Indians  have been allotted their share of the lands, but  it is feared that there will be considerable  - trouble experienced before the ownership of the  stores of mineral wealth is finally settled. It  has long been known that the gulches of the  Lemhi Indian lands were full of geld, the redskins having frequently displayed very large  nuggets and many specimens of gold quartz  that, in richness, equalled the picked ore taken  from the Nelson ledge in Angel's Camp, Calaveras county, California.

During the past month there have been more  towTnsites placed on the market than there have  been mineral claims located  in  the  Slocan   all  summer, or nearly as many, at any rate, and the  extraordinary part of it is, that each town has  its mission to nerform, and  some special point  to   recommend  it.     Everyone  interested  in  a  townsite���������and who is,not?---claims that his place  is the  best;  and  everyone  is right.    The  best  town is undoubtedly that which is thought to be  best.    The profession of a tipster, one who foretells what horse will win a race, is not altogether  the most certain means of making a living, but  it has its merits.   No special knowledge is re-  quired to make a success  of the  business.    All  one has to do is to take the list of horses entered  for the race,  and,  for a consideration,   inform  each client that the  horse  named  to  him is a  sure winner, taking care to impartially distribute all the horses running, amongst the applicants for tips, assnring each one that you possess  exclusive inform ation, which  makes  it a sure  thing that that horse, and that horse alone, can  win the  race in question.    It doesn't matter a  bit Which horse comes in  first, as  the one that  does win  is always  the one you named.    This  method  of proceedure  might be profitably applied  to the townsite business, and, at   present,  with every chance ofe making a good thing of it.  The  whole thing is, to  a very great extent, a  lottery.    Accident has as  much to do with the v  making of a town as anything else.    All  one  can do is to  watch   the  market and  invest to  suit one's own inclinations.  GILKEB & WELL  Postoffice Store, Nelson, 15. C.  AND GENTS' FURNISHING GOODS.

Guimaraes, who has been investing to  some extent in the Slocan, was one of the victims of a train robbery in the States. He and  his wife were travelling together, and had between them a wad of nearly $2,000. The robber got $900 from Mr. Guimaraes, leaving the  $1,000 which was in the possession of his wife  behind hirn.    Mr. Guimaraes says:  " I wasn't rattled at all, as I have lived all my  life in a mining country and am not easily  scared by gun plays. In fact, I have always  carried a revolver myself, but on this trip I left  it at home. All the time he was going through  me his smoking and cocked pistol was under  my nose, and the smoke so suffocated me that  I swallowed a chew of tobacco, which made me  sick."

Kelley is in Spokane.  O. W. Busk was in town for an  hour  on Tuesday.  H. SelousJA. S. Farwell and H. E. Newton  all left on Tuesday by the Nelson on their way  to the Coast.  R. E. Lemon received a carload of flour on  Tuesday, and Fred Hume has since got in a  like quantity of coal oil. .With a mixture of  the two we cannot starve.    Thank goodness.  A telegram has been received from Spokane  by C. E. Perry & Co., asking them to reserve a  block in Duncan City for the sender, who offers  to pay any price for, it that, is current within  the week. We understand that arrangements  have already been made for the building of an  hotel on this townsite, early in March.  The Nelson boys who went up to Kaslo on  Saturday last seem to have had a pretty good  time. What with excursions to Lardo City,  Argenta and Duncan City, and afterwards a  careful and elaborate examination of the ins and  outs of Kaslo, they must have enjoyed themselves. Had the gang.on one of the steamers  only been able to induce their skipper to make  a circle round the other boat, the happiness of  one part of the crowd would have been complete.  G. M; Sproat has returned to Bear Lake City  to arrange the details of a carnival to be held  there during Christmas week. The judge says  everything .will, be done in first-class style, the  surrounding ranchers supplying*, turkeys, geese,  butter and fresh eggs, which will form the basis  of the entertain nient. LTuless something solid is  imported, as well as a little teeny-tiny drop of  whiskey, we are afraid that some very hungry  men will find:their way into Kaslo a day or two  after the carnival has taken place.  Frank Fletcher and H. Twigg, on Thursday,  went down to fishing shack No. 3 for a week's  hunting.  French Joe made an effort to reach the Toad  Mountain Hotel on Saturday last, but. played  out. within half a mile of the Silver King, and  spent the ."night in the Nelson Sawmill Company's buildings. -    -  Notice is given in the latest Gazette that, in  pursuance of the provisions of the C & K. 'Act,  Block 33, two miles square, situated at the south  end of Trout Lake, has been reserved from lease,  sale or settlement.  J. E. Boss, .Tim Wardner, G. A. Keefer, J. G.  Rykert, J. M. Harris, Hugh Mann, H. W.  Bucke, and Harry Kruse were some of the  celebrities who visited us during the past week.  Jim McDonald is back from Kaslo.  The Nakusp sleigh road has been completed.  As it was not expected that the work would be  completed before to-day, Contractor Mann is  somewhat ahead of time.  A. H. Buchanan, of the Bank of Montreal,  has consented to act as trustee for the. owner's  of the townsite of Lardo. Mr. Buchanan will  sign all agreements and execute all deeds of  conveyance.  .;������������������ Billy Lynch and W. J. McLeary, who form  the Kaslo Transportation Company, were in  town on.Monday. The latter looks remarkably-  well for a man who has been drowned for a  fort night. That he was drowned can hardly be  doubted as, recording to his own account, he  telegraphed home denying his death, and himself foilov/ed to substantiate his statements. He  arrived four clays before the telegram showed  up. According to scientists, nothing but a soul  can beat electricity in speed. Consequently, of  course, it was McLeary's ghost that visited and  reassured his relatives. Still he looked pretty  solid for a ghost when we saw him.  O-. W. RICaiARDSOtf  NcIsoh, 15. ���������.  K.
