NELSON,  BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,  JULY 1, 1893.  $4 A YEAE  THE 1AI WE   CELEBRATED  THE   GAMES   AND  EAOES   AEE    WAEMLY  CONTESTED  Tho Two Ways' Celebration .Passcss off in a Joyous  Manner���������A Crowd of" Visitors ���������oiiae From Kaslo,  Aihsworth and Other Lake Ports���������Royal -.Salutes.  Greet Them.  Nelson was favored with exceptionally fine  weather for the Dominion day celebration.  There was a good attendance, the athletic and  other contests were wTell filled and keenly carried  on, the horse-racing was exciting, the fire-works  were pretty, the dancing enjoyable, and as all  ���������wei e free as air to Nelsons visitors it may safely  predicted that everyone enjoyed himself or herself.   ������������������  The Spokane was met at the wharf on Friday  by the city brass-band, the members of which  surprised their friends by their proficiency. As  the boat was approaching the wharf, Adjutant-  General Bigelow  ordered his batteries to fire a  salute. Early Saturday morning a royal salute  was fired, and with daylight the fun commen-  cened and was kept going. The athletic games  of the morning gave place in the afternoon to  the exciting horse-racing of the fore part of the  afternoon, to be followed by the acquatic contests later on, and conclude withe pleasures.-of  the dance.  The thanks of all who took in the celebration  are due to Messrs. John Houston, Frank Fletcher, A. H. Buchanan, Charles Van Fess, R. E.  Lemon, John Johnson, Geo. A. Bigelow, W. J.  Wilson, George Neelands, Bruce Oraddock, F.  X Squire, many of whom worked early and late  to secure the happy issue of the demonstration.

The quarter-mile running race for a purse of $110, with  ft-iO to the second hoivse, was the principiil event of the day.  The entries included Mini Beatty,' Wilson's 'Black, Coy s  * Dutch,' 'Hegleg,' and 'Diamond'. Jim Beatty was the  favorite from the opening of the pool, Dutch and the  Blaciv selling second alternately.  The horses were sent a way together and swept down on  the bridge in a bunch, under a cloud of dust. Beatty had  the best of the race from the bridge, and although the fiold  (.,.rK) down under the whip the favorite finished with a  comfortable leiid, with Dutcn second and the Black, third.  The second heat was a repitition of the first.  The 400-yard race was made interesting by the barring of  Jim Beatty. 1 ho favorites were Dutch and Wilson's Black  who sold alternately at the pool, as Nelson and Kaslo happened to be gathered at the stand.  Dutch was sent in and won the first heat. The black  was sent to win the second heat which he did after a close  race.   li\ the third heat the black won easily.  Consolation race���������This was won by Frye, of Idaho, who  was closely pushed by a little chap named Adams.     The .  sorrel horse from Kamloops was beaten again.  Hurdle race���������Wilson's black won, while Wilson's bay,  ridden by C. Hartle, took second.  J.M. BTJEKE'SJBANK COLLAPSES  WHILE  BUEKE IS ENDEAVOEING TO CASH  SEOUEITIES IE SPOKANE  The Suspension is the Immciliate Outcome of flic  Bank Failures in Spokane, the Depositors Withdrawing their Funds Quietly���������Burke's Departure  Followed toy a steady Itun on the KSank.  Kaslo, June 29.���������Burke's private bank in  Kaslo has b^en closed, but there is not much  uneasiness evinced by the local merchants,  many of wnom run nothing but their petty  accounts with the Kaslo bank, reserving the  volume of their business for the chartered  banks in Nelson.  The closing of the bank may be traced directly  to the uneasiness following the suspension of  the four banks in Spokane.  Depositors in Burke's bank did not rush  around with their deposit books in their hands*  but they evidently decided to draw down their  deposits and play safe.  This  may  probably account for the fact that  last week there was a quiet, steady drain on the  bank and when the week was closed there were  $20,000 less in the bank than when the week  opened.  J. M. Burkp, the banker, left Kaslo last week  with the avowed purpose of securing specie  somewhere on the other side of the line. The  bank opened on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning of this week, and those interested  awaited the return of Burke, but he came not,  and the blinds were lowered on Wednesday  afternoon.  SBLVER   KING   DEAL.  A. S. Farwell, who arrived in town from  Victoria on Friday evening has the\positive  assurance of W. C. Ward, manager of the  Bank of British Columbia, that the Silver King  deal has been put through.  The deal is outlined in the following paragraph :  A gentleman, recently from London, Eng.,  and himself a mining broker, states that the  Silver King deal was completed on the following basis : The mine was floated for ������300,000, of  which amount the present owners secured  ������200,000 in paid up stock. The remaining ������100,-  000 is to be subscribed in cash, and of this  ������70,000 had been subscribed when the Colonist's  informant left London. The original owners  are to receive back from this the amount so far  expended, the balance being utilized in the  development of the property.���������Victoria Colonist.    Jsaure B. N^iqsa and H- A. F'.iosi3j of the Lardo Reporter, and ������). H. Goarpoy, of the Kaslo Claim, were in  Nelson on Saturday taking in the celebration. They evidently enjoyed the racket.  SILVER STILL OK THE DECLINE  THE   COUNCIL   OF   INDIA   DEAL A  HAED  BLOW TO THE WHITE METAL  The Price Drops to - 77 Cents���������The Washington. Administration Realizes the Gravity of the Situation  and May Adopt Some fi)>efensive Measures���������Silver  Properties at a Discount.  Silver has again dropped. ., The price is now  quoted at 70 cents an ounce. This is the lowest  price ever quoted in the history of the product  of silver bullion.0 This represents a fall in price  of from   ten to twelve cents within a fortnight.  On Saturday last the London price, which  guides the director of the mint in the purchases  for the government, was 37-^d., or about 81.8c.  in this country. On Monday the price in London was 36d., or about 78.8c. in New York. The  cause of the depression, as assigned by Mr.  Preston, acting director of the mint, was due to  the rumor, which has since been verified, that  India, one of. the largest silver-consuming  countries, was about to, close its mints to the  white metal. ffl  The Cduncil of India has passed an act for the  immediate closing of the Indian mints to the  free coinage of silver. Premier Gladstone  announced in the British House of Commons  that it was intended to introduce a gold standard in India, but that gold in the meantime  would not be made the sole legal tender.  The situation is looked upon as a serious one  at the Capitol, Washington. The President  and Secretary of State and the financial officers  of the government are holding protracted sessions, and the question as to the future action  of the Govern men t is being discussed in every  light. It is not believed the action of the  Indian Council was taken without express  orders from the British Government,--which has  general supervision and control of Indian  affairs.  Free coinage men are advocating the adoption  of their policy, and are ahout to establish headquarters at Washington for an organized effort  to push their cause.  The mine owners of Colorado look upon the  situation as a very grave on. David H. M'offatt  is the largest mine owner in the state. He said  that he had summoned all his managers to come  to Denver at once, for " 77 cents for silver  mined by men paid $3 a day means a loss to a  mine owner who has not a fabulously rich  mine." If his men do not accept a reduction of  33������ per cent, in their wages he says he will be  compelled to shut down.  Senator Wolcott says the situation may  mean immediate disaster to western interests,  but it may mean a blessing in disguise.  Chicago business men attribute the depression  to the Sherman bill.  HOW THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED  London, June 26.���������A despatch to the Exchange Company from Malta states that the  Victoria   was cut  in  two aft  of the barbette.  Most of those who lost their lives were drowned  by being drawn under by suction caused by the  sinking ship. Vice-Admiral Sir George Tyron  was picked up shortly after the foundering of  his flagship. He was carried on board the  Edinburgh, where he died shortly afterward.  The despatch vessel Surprise is expected to  arrive in Malta to-morrow with the body of  Admiral Tryon. The remainder of the fleet is  due at Malta.

Assays recently made  show 396 2-10 ounces silver and $10 gold per ton;  214 8-10 ounces silver, $6.30 gold ; 213 8-10 ounces  silver, $6.30 gold. Six men are employed, and  there are now twenty tons of this grade of ore  on tbe.dump. The vein is constantly showing  an improvement.  E. Mahon, of Vancouver, has received returns  from the Tacoma Smelting and Refining Company for fifteen tons of ore from the Vancouver  claim on Four Mile creek in the Slocan district.  According to these returns the or������ averages 233  ounces of silver to the ton, and 46 per cent,  lead.  E. S. Topping has lately received an assay on  ore sent from the Mountain View at a depth of  five feet, which shows $75 in gold and IS ounces  in silver to the ton.  Yau Home's  1'taccr.  The Horsefly placer claim in Cariboo has been  acquired by a wealthy syndicate, at the bead of  which are reported to be several members of  the Canadian Pacific railway directorate. They  are going in for hydraulic mining on a larger  scale" than has ever before, been attempted in  British Columbia, and will spare no expense to  ensure the success of their venture. The company have placed an order with D. McGillivray  & Co., of Vancouver for 500 tons of 30-inch steel  pipes at a cost of $100,000. These pipes will he  shipped to Ashcroft and thence conveyed in  wagons 150 miles to Horsefly creek, which  yielded an immense quantity of gold in the  early days.  Tlie Duncan Stiver Belt.  E. H. Hendsch has returned after a three  .months' prospecting trip up the Duncan, and  reaching Spokane, unbosomed himself in this  wise :���������" I am satisfied that the Duncan river  district will become a famous belt. It is still  comparatively unknown, but the ledges are of a  size and character that will not permit them to  remain undeveloped. We were looking for  gold, but there is a silver belt east of the gold  region that carries considerable ore that assays  100 ounces at the surface. The country will  certainly give excellent results for exploration  and development."  Mill on Silver.  New  York,   June 27.���������Senator David B. Hill  has come out in favor of free bi-metallic coinage  He believes that if assurance is given that the  Government will return to the policy followed  previous to 1873 no difficulty will be found in  repealing the Sherman Act, and not othsrwise.  It is said he will deliver speeches on this line in  Ohio and New York.  IFIQ  The Cheapest and Most Direct Route  Prom NELSON, KASLO and aU Kootenay Points  To the PA0IPI0 00AST and to the EAST.

Slow burst apart the fetters strong  That bound him to his brutal self;  And let the soul's free hand stretch forth  To clasp,close-gripped, a brother hand.  Those sordid links were shaped anew  To form an ever lengthening chain  Of kindred, tribe, then nation strong.  Unnumbered years since then have run,  Have bnilded up, and swept away.  Forgotten nations moulder deep  'Neath soil whence newer nations sprung; .  And stronger still, in that has grown,  But firmer with each cycle past,  The close-gripped clasp of brother hand.  And ever from the old are drawn  The lessons which the new must learn.

Her strength  In that firm clasp, which hand to hand,  Her children holds as brothers all.  Tis well for such, on such a day  To closer draw with kindred minds,  Renew again the vows which made  Us worthy children of such sires.  And far away in British homes,  The eyes once moist for absent sons  Grow bright with thoughts that 'cross the seas  Those sons, with sons of their's have built  New homes.

That the customs tariff not only stagnates the  country's commerce and stagnates its business  enterprise, but affords a hill foi* the country's  politicions to play hide and seek around ?  Will they not sigh for an administration with  sufficient  moral  courage  to '-turn its back upon  the  spoon-feeding   of   the    monopolistic    Red  Parlor combine, and for an opposition that will  define a trade policy which will be more intelli-,  gible  and   practical   than   that set   down   by  Edward Blake  at   Milverton   during  the  last  general appeal to the countiy.

To-day Nelson celebrates in concert with the  rest of the Dominion the 26th anniversary of  that Confederation which sought the unification  of the many isolated British colonies on the  North American continent.  In the far East the rising sun, saluted by the  roar  of  cannon,   told  the  stranger  within our  gates  that  Canada's   natal  day  was  dawning.  From   the   Atlantic to the Pacific one universal  song   of   patriotism   will   pervade   a   country  stretching   over   4,000   miles,   and   for   awhile  Canadians   will forget those internal bickerings  which   have gendered and reared their heads in  many  sections,   and  which  her enemies  have  sought to foster and bring about dissensions and  strife within her borders.  In  large  and  populous   cities, from crowded  platforms, politicians of every stripe and shade  will gush   out  their  patriotic feelings  to  sympathetic  audiences ;   large  crowds    will jostle  each other for points of vantage from which to  view  imposing   military   parades.    In humbler  ways  the residents of  erstwhile quiet hamlets,  decked in their holiday attire, will celebrate the  anniversary  of a  happy,   prosperous  country,  and   recollections   of those  at home and   those  away  will   knit   Canadians   more closely  in a  national brotherhood.  To-morrow,   when  all   the  noise  has  passed  away,   the   thinking  ones   will   ask themselves  whether  all   is   being done that should be done  to make Canada the great  country they would  like it to be ?     Whether  the party in power at  Ott-iwa  are  constant  in   their   service  to   the  country or to themselves.    They will review the  history of the past few years and ask themselves  whether love for power has  not prompted them  to   pass   measures  threatening the happy, pros-  HE SUBSCRIBER MAS IN STOCK  ;   or e?i ?'6ute from the Coast :  1 Ca?load Glass$ Raints and Oils.  2 Carload Sash a 7td Doors,  2  Ca?'load Dry Clear Eir Eloori7tg, 4. inch,  1 Ca-rload Dry Clear Eir Ceili?ig, 4 inch,  I  Carload Factory  Cedar,  An   Im7?iense   Stock of  Co?n?7ion Limiber,  Shzhgles, Laths, Mouldi7igs, Etc., as-, usual.

C, SATUBDAY, JULY 1, 1893.  TENDERFOOT ON THE TEAIL  HE SEEKS THE COMPANY OF " WINGS "IN;  HIS WANDEEINGS  From Kaslo to New ������enveir���������Visiting the Noted  Claims and Mimes in tlae Slocan ������istrict���������Worfc  being Carried on toy Some of tlie Principal Mine  'Owners. .  New Denver, June 29.  ,   Editor The Miner : -  As it has been some time since you have heard  from me, and understanding very well the  anxiety which you must feel as to my fateT  hasten to inform you that I am still in the land  of the living.  My adventures since the last time I wrote you  have been of a nature at once thrilling and  awful. Becoming weary of loafing around a  a place where death and decay are becoming  more evident every day, it is no wonder that I  longed for change. From time to time great,  rude unkempt men who are locally termed  prospectors came in from the surrounding  mountains, bringing reports of vast deposits of  untold mineral wealth. You know that despite  the fact that I have been reared in the lap of  luxury as it were, I have an unusually adventurous nature. You will not be astonished  when I tell you that my soul became fixed with  a determination to myself become one of those  hardy prospectors. Sadly I doffed the raiment  of civilization, and acting under the advice of  one who, like yourself, is a pioneer in this weird  land, rigged myself out for the trip;  "Haw," I thought, "Mehap could Cholly and  the dea'  boys but see me now.    I'd knock 'em,  sure."   And  truly I  was  a sight to make the  the angels  weep.      Among those with whom I  have become acquainted since coming here I am  proud to name a brilliant journalist known to  the " World " and fame as " The Man on the  Wing." Judge, then, how delighted I was to  find 1 should enjoy his company on the trip.  Disdaining the stage coach, which runs out  fifteen miles, and scorning th������ suggestion of  saddle horses, we set out on khat well nigh  fatal trip which has already tinged my flowing  locks .with silver (not galena) and marked my  brow with the lines of care.  The wagon road runs out for some miles, and  we did very well until we reached Bell's camp,  about seventeen miles out on the road. Here  we rashly resolved to leave the regular trail and  take to the mountains. " Wings " has recently  become the proud posseseor of an interest in a  claim somewhere in these savage regions and  wished to settle as soon as possible the vexed  question as to whether he was a millionaire or  just a common sucker. So we took to the side  hill. The romance began to fade in the first  mile, and long before we reached Jackson's  camp away up in the ragged summit of the  range I wished myself back in the hotel gathering knowledge in some less tiresome way.  At the Northern Belle we found that a considerable amount of work has been done with  most encouraging results. A tunnel has been  run in for about 250 feet on the vein. The hanging wall has been followed all the way, though  at times the ore makes over toward the foot  wall. It is the intention to cross-cut at a point  200 feet in and thus determine the width of the  vein. The formation is slate with an occasional  intersecting porphyry dyke and a small lime  " horse " here and there." The usual iron capping overlays most of the galena in this section.  The ore in the Northern Belle is high grade  galena, and the property gives every indication  of turning out first-class.  Hearing that we could possibly get accommodations for the night over the summit we  resolved to push on, " Wings" especially showing an anxiety about his inner man not in keeping with his implied spiritual nature.

TENDERFOOT ON THE TRAIL  l-     (Continued from page 8;) c  By the time Ave reached the top of the ridge,  7,500 feet above the level of the sea, I longed for  the companionship of two people, the man who  wrote " Excelsior," and the perpetrator of  '��������� Beautiful Snow." I think the trip would have  been a useful object lesson, to-both of these misguided individuals.       a  The view from the summit of the range was  grand in the extreme, os the setting sun lit up  masses of ragged peaks covered deep with  snow. I am .strongly moved to attempt a description of the same, hut will refrain. Following the example of " Wings," who is growling  something about being hungry, I plunge down  the steep mountain side.  At the Blue Bird we are made welcome. Here  a gang of eight men are working, and if the  beautiful galena which they are piling up on  the dump is any evidence, they are not working  in vain.        :'>.;'������������������;...,  Across the canyon can be seen the works of  the Freddie Lee. The mountain is scarred with  the marks of numerous snowslides, and down at  the foot is a huge pile of drift and snow where  the unrecqvered bodies of two unfortunates still  lie buried.  The attempts to recover their bodies have so  far been unsuccessful. Within the past few  days some of the tools and other things carried  by tnese men were found by a tearch party, b;.t  no trace of the bodies.  The next morning "Wings " and I, still  thirsting foa fame and adventure, resolved to  try to make over the ridge to pay a visit to the  famous Washington. Up over the crust1 of the  snow Ave went, quite easily for a time, but as  we mounted the way grew  steeper and steeper,  until we arrived at a place where it seemed  almost impossible to pi oceed. The crust had  become so softened that to go back would be  toilsome and 'dangerous. " Wings " sized up  the situation and began to recite " Now I lay  me down, etc." The only way, in fact, to proceed was to stand still. I don't know yet ]nst  how Ave managed the business, but down the  Noble Five Slide, a drop of over 4,000 feet in  elevation, we two'poor helpless tenderfeet succeeded at last in finding our way safely to the  creek.  In   this  slide  one  has a fine chance to  study  the formation of the country, for the mountain  is laid bare to the bedrock  from top to bottom.  Plainly   the  o\7erlying slate formation has been  subjected   to  so ue  extensive local disturbance  which has forced from   below molten  masses of  stone  which,   in  an   effort  to  secure an outlet  have broken up  the elate in long and no doubt  very deep  fissures.      Some   of   theee have   of  of   course   been    filled    with    the     disturbing  element and now appear in the shape of porphy-  ing dykes, of which a number are found running  through   the   country.    The contact appears to  be generally  slate  lime,   and  the ore deposits  may have resulted from a first or even a secondary local disturbance.      There  is   no reason to  suppose,  judging from ail indications, but that  the ore bodies will continue to a sufficient depth  to reach beyond anything required for practical  ordinary purposes. This is the opinion of every-  practical mining man and expert who has examined the country thus far.  On continuing down the south fork of Carpenter' creek Ave arrived in a short time at Sandon creek and gladly proceeded to refresh the  inner man. Here, in a position to reach a number of the most important group of mines a  townsite is being laid out at the junction of  Sandon and South Fork.  Let us glance at some of the surrounding properties. Away up yonder over the ridge to the  east is the Washington, probably the most  extensively developed mine in trie district. The  main tunnel opened two large chutes of ore  which are now being tapped by a lower tunnel  that will cross-cut the vein at a depth of nearly  400 feet. This will demonstrate beyond a doubt  whether the ore body continues firm at a  considerable depth, and if the test is stood successfully, and there is every reason to think it  will be, it Avill prove of great value to the country. The inine shows jrom 2^ to 6 feet of ore.  ������ The Slocan Boy, an extension of the Washington, bids fair ibo rival its parent.  In the Slocan Star preparations ha\7e all been  made with a bieAv to taking advantage of the  first transportation facilities offered. The vein  has been worked in such a manner that while  but little has been taken out it is in splendid  shape for quickly and easily taking out a large  .quantity of ore.  The Lucky Jim owners are feeling jubilant  over the new strike of ore made a few days ago.  This property is now equal to any in the district. The location is favorable being only a  few days ago. This property is now equal to  any in the district. The location is favorable,  being only a few hundred yards from the Bear  Creek main trail now being folowed by the  wagon road.  The syndicate of which Mr. Mliddough is mining manager have some good properties up  around Sandon creek. They are working about  forty men in putting in trails and opening up  their property. One of these, the Big Boulder,  is a remarkable nugget of rich ore, evidently  simply a huge chunk of float, 35 feet around  and weighing, so it is estimated, 175 tons. By  far the largest nugget in the world.  The World's Fair is coming to the front. It  has been worked in connection with the  Bonanza King. A large quantity of high grade  ore is tioav lying on the dump awaiting shipment. The tunnel is in over two hundred feet.  The banner claim of this section is probable  the Mountain Chief, which is situated lower  doAvn on the main Carpenter creek, near New  Denver. If some practical raining man has  selected a site with a view to all possible advantages in the way of working he could not have  done better than chance has done for the  Mountain Chief. Three tunnels have been run  in at various depths and the property is now in  good shape for taking out the ore for shipment.  Men hold their breath when told that the  assays on this property run from 1,000 to 2,500  ounces in from 16 to 20 inches of clean ore.  To attempt detail would be to write a volume  on this wonderful country.     On every hand are  hundred of claims rapidly being developed into  mines, and new and valuable strikes are being  made so rapidly that it would require a daily  paper published on the spot to keep pace with  the progress.  Once furnish this magnificent mining region  with the proper transportation facilities, and  the output will astonish the world.  Passing on through Three Forks we arriA*ed  at New Denver, a Aveli-located spot near which  are some fine claims of which I will try to tell  you in my next letter.  A Flat Minor.  ~T^    C.
