NELSON,  BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   JULY 8, 1893.  $4 A YEAE  THE^^ ���������  THE PRESIDENT'S PROCLAMATION RALLIES  THE FRIENDS OP SILVER0  The Price Rising Steadily���������The IJ.S. Congress to'Meet'  at the Capitol in August���������Senator Sherman Will  Vote lor the Repeal of the Objectionable Clauses  in the Sherman Bill.  New York despatches dated July 4th state  that silver is quiet aud steady at the (following  figures :���������Certificates, 72-|- to 73c._ _ Commercial  bar silver, 72c. Mexican dollars, nominally 58c.  Five hundred and fifty thousand ounces will be  exported to-morrow. Money easier, 3 to 25 ; in  closing it was offered at 3 ; bar silver, 72 ;  Mexican dollars, 59. Silver sales on the stock  exchange were 60,000 ounces, closing at 74������. A  bid of 75c. was asked. ;v;  President Cleveland's proclamationjballing a  special session of Congress, reads:���������Tile distrust  and apprehension concerning the financial situation   which has pervaded  all  business circles  have already caused great loas and damage to  our people  and  threaten  to  cripple  our  merchants,   stop the wheels of manufacture, bring  distress  and privation to our farmers and withhold from our workingmeh the wages of labor ;  and whereas,   the present perilous condition is  largely the result of a fin_iucial policy which the  executive branch of the government finds embodied in unwise laws  which  must be executed  until  repealed  by Congress ; now, therefore, 1,  Grover   Cleveland,    President   of   the  :JJnited  States, in; performance of a constitutional duty,  do by this proclamation declare that the extra-  Grdiuaryxoccasion   requires   the   convemhg   of  both Houses of Congress of the United States at  the  Capitol   in   the  city of Washington on the  7th day of August next at twelve o'clockmoon,  to  the  end   that the  people  may  be   relieved  through legislation from the present impending  danger and distress.  A London despatch states that Mr. Goschen,  ex-chancellor of the exchequer, in an interview  regarding India's action in closing her mints to  free coinage of silver, says it must be regarded  9S temporary, and India's silver now possesses  no real standard value. It is impossible that  such a state of affairs should continue indefinitely. 'Everything depended in India upoh how  the natives regarded the new measure.- The  natives are naturally conservative and esteemed  the rupee as almost sacred. If they absolutely  refused to accept the new measure the government would be compelled to withdraw it.  A despatch: from Cleveland, Ohio, give a summary of Senator Sherman's expressed views on  the silver question. He said the measure with  which his name was connected was in the  nature of a compromise to prevent the enactment of free coinage legislation, which was  imminent. " Right here," said the senator, " is  thepoint wherein the inconsistency of some offc  the 'Democratic opponents of that law then as  now is shown, for while opposing it they favored  a measuie which provided for free coinage of  silver The only objectionable feature of the  law is the clause requiring siiver purchase, and  that I presume, will be repealed. At all events  I shall vote for the repeal of the clause myself."  The Band Organizes and Elects Officers.  The high enconiums which were showered  upon the members of the brass band which provided music for the Dominion day celebration  encouraged the boys to such an extent that  they decided to hold the talent together and  give the citizens a weekly feast of music in the  form of a Saturday evening open air concert.  The boys are practising under the leadership of  C. Scanlan, and will give the initial concert on  Saturday evening, July 22. On Tuesday last the  following officers were elected : Presideh, S. D.  Schultz ; Secretary, W. Shaw ; Treasurer, G.  H. E_eefer. The active membersxxf the band  are : C. Scanlan, solo cornet ; .'IS'ri'rSi&aw;: 2nd ���������  cornet ; P. Turner, alto ; A. McKay, 2nd alto ;  C. Van Ness, 3rd alton ; J. E. Turner, 1st tenor ;  G. H. Keefer; 2nd tenor ; S. D. Schultz, euphonium ; W. Shaw, tuber ; T. A. Mills, bass  drum ; W. G. Perkins, snare drum ; A. Tre-  gillus, piccolo. A few more musicians are  needed to complete the band.  GOLDEN SMELTER TO SMELT.  One of the Results Attending the Recent Sale of the  North Star.  Golden, B.C., July 5.���������It is understood that-  arrangements have been made with the owners  of the North Star mine by the Golden Mining &  Smelting Company, whereby the latter will  acquire five thousand tons of the North Star  ore. The ore will be reduced to a matte and  then shipped to England for final treatment,  very favorable rates having been made by the  C. P. R. for the shipment.  BONDED, POR   $75,000  An American  Syndicate Secures a -Bond on Two of  Slocan's -Likely Claims.  E. Mahon, one of the owners of the Vancouver  and Mountain Boomer properties, visited New  Denver this week, and it is reported that he  bonded his properties to Mr. Packer, the representative of an American syndicate, for something like $75,000.  %  These properties were purchased from the  former owners for $3,000 and $2,400 respectively  and the recent assays on them, though very  good, were not as high as they could have been  had: any choice been shown in the selection of  jthe assay shipment.

Collector Clute Arrives  Collector Clute, of the New Westminster  Customs port, of which Nelson now forms an  outport, arrived in Nelson last night for the  purpose of establishing Sub-Collector Johnstone in office and providing him with all the  necessar37 instructions.  An office will be secured during the next few  days, and F. Berry^ late of the Victoria Port  of Customs, will be office manager. Mr. Berry  is already in Nelson, as is also JB. F. Mackintosh, of Ottawra,* who will take Kootenay river  affairs in  hand( from now on.  No details have as yet been arrived at, but it  is understood that Collector Clute will," while  here, take a general look over the field with a  view of ascertaining the present state of affairs,  and some minor adjustments may follow to  fit in with the new order of things.  Gold ore assaying $400 to the ton has been  taken from the LeRoi mine, Trail Creek, at a  depth of 174 feet, and the ore body from which  the assay sample was taken appears to be of the  same grade. Mr. Pugh, manager of the Pyritic  Smelting Company, is bringing in a diamond  drill, which, with other machinery for the  LeRoi, War Eagle and California, is now awaiting shipment at Spokane until the wagon road  is completed from the river to the mines.  Ben Murphy has made a strike of galena near  Pilot Bay, about 1������ miles back from Kootenay  Lake.    Samples for assay have been sent in.  BRITAIN'S   ROXAE^ W^  PRINCESS   MAY   OP   TECK   BECOMES   THE  DUCHESS  OF  YORK.  The Ceremony Eclipsed in E^baup and Splendor any  Ceremonial of the British Court in Recent Years  Old London and its People do Honor to the  Nation's Favorite Princess.  London, July 6.���������The marriage of the Duke  of York, (Prince George of Wales) and LPrincess  Victoria May of Teck, took place at 12.30 today  in the chapel of St. James.  The wedding was a brilliant function atttend-  ed by a large gathering of British and continental royalty, and the highest nobility. The  weather was beautiful. A great crowd gathered  along the route from Buckingham palace to the  garden entrance to St. James palace. The ceremonies eclipsed in pomp and splendor any recent  ceremonial of the British court.  The royal party left  Buckingham  palace in  four processions.     The Duke arrived at Chapel  Royal   first.        Five   minutes   later   deafening  cheers  announced the arrival of Princess May.  A   fanfare   of   trumpets  sounded as the Queen  arrived, and the greatest enthusiasm was manifested.    'As  the procession   entered the chapel  a good f,iew was  obtained of the royal person- r  ages.    Tlife que<m headed   the  procession.    She  walked alone, leaning on an ebony stick.    Her  majesty was attired in a black dress with train.  She wore across  her bosom the broad blue rib-  bin   of   the   Order  of   the  Garter, the highest  British   order, and   on   her head, was a small  diamondicrown, from   which  her veil dropped.  As   Her  majesty   passed   up   the ^ nave of the  chapel the whole" assemblage bowed.  Following the queen came the Prince of  Wales, and Duke of Edinburgh, and behind  them walked a number of admirals in full uniform, escorting the bridegroom, who wore the  uniform of a fleet captain.  The czarowitch, official representative of the  emporor of Russia, was in military uniform ;  the King of Denmark escorted his daughter the  princess of Wales. The princess wore a dress of  pure white silk and a tiara of diamonds. The  Marquis of Lome wore the dress of a Highland  chief, and his wife the Princess Louise was  attired in a helotrope colored robe, and she wore  a tiara of diamonds. The bride leaned upon the  arm of her father.  The archbishop of Canterbury performed the  ceremony. .  Hunt & Dover's auction sale of watches and  jewellery will commence at two o'clock to-day,  and will be continued at 7:30 o'clock to-night.  The East Kootenay Hydraulic Company has  its.hydraulic plant in operation on Wild Horse  creek, and it is the intention to run night and  day during the'season. The grounds are lighted  at 'night by electricity, and the power is supplied by a Pelton water motor.  Tom Brown, a fourth year student in McGill  University, Montreal, who is taking a course  in mining engineering, will not lose a chance for  practical study during the long summer vacation. Dressed in corduroys and top boots, he  shouldered a pack at Nelson on Friday morning  and started for the Hall Creek placer diggings,  where he has located a claim and intends building a shack beside his " Clementine," the name  under which he has recorded his claim.  ii'ii  ���������l!  j  R.

The Result of Steady and Honest Mission Work on  Behalf ofVilic Richest Mineral Oountry in the  World is ]V������w Being Shown by the Interested  Attitude of-London Financial Men.  W. A. Jowett returned to Nelson on Monday  after a four months'  visit to England.    From  New York to Nelson he travelled first-class on  $50.50, and the day he left the rate had been cut  still lower.  He took in the World's Fair at Cliicago, and  was very favorably^ impressed with the mineral  exhibit from "West Kootenay. To his mind it is  not so imposing an exhibit as those of the old  mining' States of the Union, but the assays on  the Kootenay ores tell their, own story.  Respecting the Silver King deal, he explained  that the present owners could not make terms  with any of the London underwriters in view of  the present tightness of the money market, and  that, failing this, Ramsay had made a canvas of  his personal friends and had induced them to  put up money sufficient to develop the property. He understaod that the money had tx en  raised and that work would be commenced at  once.  Mr.  Jowett  is  convinced  that   the people of  Great Britain are becoming alive to the mineral  wealth of the Kootenays, but for the most part  they know  absolutely nothing  of the district  nor of its geographical position.  Inquiries came so fast on Mr. Jowett with  regard to the Silver King that he had the  information printed on a large red card which  he fastened on his waistcoat. After this, in  reply to queries for Silver King news he merely  opens up his coat and allows the questioner to  peruse for himself.  An Inducement for a Doctor.  The Provincial Government offers a bonus of  $600 a year to a physician who will establish a  practice in Southern Cariboo, and applications  are called for by A. Campbell Reddie, Deputy  Provincial Secretary.  The Revelstoke Star labors hard to convince  itself and its readers that Nelson has acquired  too much of the Government appropriation.  While Nelson would be quite pleased to be  persuaded that they had received all that which  they are entitled to they can join with the Star  in the wish that Revelstoke may get a grant of  twenty millions from somewhere, just to liven  the place up a bit.

In the present very uncertain and unsatisfactory condition of affairs with regard to silver  prices, the question which naturally occurs to  those whose intpiests are in this section is,  " What will the local effect be ?" That is, can  even the very high grade ores for which the  Slocan and other Kootenay mining sections are  justly famous withstand the force'- of such  adverse circumstances. In this connection it  will be well to remember an old principal of  human nature which renders a thing once done  continually easier and more agreeable to re-  pent.  Men who have been bank clerks all their days  do not, in some sudden loss of position, gladly  turn to blacksmithing, but rather seek elsewhere for employment along lines with which  they are already fam ilar. K    $.  Should the decline in silver prices succeed in  shutting down the majority of the low grade  silver-lead mining camps in the United States,  those men who have spent a lifetime in such  camps will, instead of quietly abandoning the  pursuit of mining, look about for some place  where it can be carried on to a profit, despite  the fluctuations in prices.  The result will be that both men and money  will be forced into these regions within a comparatively short time, to an extent which it  would have taken years to accomplish in any  other way.  So the decline in silver and the attendant  feeling of insecurity, while deplorable, will in  all probability prove a blessing in disguise to  these regions of high grades and vast deposits.  WONDERFUL AVERAGE VALUES.  So much hate been said about the wonderful  mineral deposits of the Slocan country and  their unusual high grade that at times the outside world may be disposed to regard some of  the statements as persistent exaggeration. To  such the following, taken from a lately issued  summary report of the Canadian Geological  Survey Department, may be of interest. It is  from the mining and mineral statistics of E. D.  Ingall, and is official :  " The assays of galena from the various veins  in  the  Kaslo-Slocan district resulted as below :  For those  occuring in green schistose and dior-  itic series of rocks, six assays gave results ranging from  38 to 146 ounces  per ton, averaging  over 80  ounces.    One  assay  of a specimen of  zinc-blende  showed   silver  to   the  extent of 26  ounces.      In the same district the galenas from  veins  occurring in   the  black argillite series of  rocks  averaged in  some  thirty-one assays 150  ounces  per  ton, ranging from 30 ounces to 520  ounces per ton.    Assays of zinc-blende returned  from   20 to  73 ounces  per ton.     The ochreous  "carbonates " occurring with the galena yielded  very variable   amounts   of   silver,   the  lowest  return being 20 ounces, the highest 1,630 ounces  per ton.    This  great discrepancy is due to this  ore  being a mechanical mixture only, which is  often   enriched   by    secondary   deposition   of  native silver and the richer silver minerals.    In  the whole series of assays made, numbering  some sixty-five in all, gold was absent, except  for mere traces found in three cases.  " The ton referred to is that of 2,000 pounds."  From the above it would appear/that the  friends of this section, instead of going too far  in their enthusiasm, have scarcely said enough.  Not only are the ores found of such uniform  high grade as to present an average which  probably could not be equalled by any district  in the world, but recent developments have  demonstrated beyond a doubt that these ores  exist in large quantity and permanent bodies.  There are thousands of tons of this high grade  ore in sight in the various properties of the  Slocan country. These, as soon as the transportation problem iss solved, will be sent out to  various points, and the fortunes which they  represent will be realized upon.  No higher tribute to this ore could be paid  than to recall the fact that most of the shipments made so far have been against charges  ranging up to nearly $100 per ton for cost of  production and transportation to the markets.  In what other country can be found large and  widely distributed veins of silver-lead ores that  will stand a tax of this nature and still show Co  balance on the right side of the ledger.  It can safely be said that if such another  country exists it has not yet been located and  opened up.  WAKING UP AT LAST.  It would appear that at last our friends across  the water are beginning to realize that they are  allowing every day golden opportunities for  remunerative investments to slip past them out  of sheer carelessness. Thanks to the staunch  friends of our province who are now visiting  the financial centres of the Mother country  enough has already been said to awaken their  brethren across the water to a realization of the  fact that they are allowing others to pluck the  plums which should by rights fall into their  hands, or at least be shared.  This good work, which is calculated to put  money into circulation here quicker than any  one thing, is being aided very materially by the  London Mining Journal, one of the leading  financial and trade journals of the world. A  number of interviews with prominent residents  of the province have recently appeared in those  columns. This has undoubtedly been in response to a demand for information regarding  this section, sufficiently general to render it  worth while for such a paper to take the  matter up.  The last issue of the above journal contains  the following : :  A great deal  is  being said in these columns  concerning  the remarkable possibilities of British  Columbia in the way of mineral output, a  colony which seems destined to rival in wealth  some of the largest gold producing countries of  the world.      This   is   fortunately  not   a mere  assumption based upon trustworthy data, but is  a definite  opinion expressed by experts whose  knowledge of the great western colony entitles  them to speak with authority upon this matter.  The interviews which we are publishing scarcely  require  any further  support to  convince   the  investing public that in British Columbia they  possess  what  may  be aptly termed a golden  opportunity,   and  should any incredulity still  exist it  ought  certainly to vanish  before the  anxiety  which  United  States prospectors  are  showing to secure the pick of the claims in that  colony.    There  may have  been   many excuses  hitherto to justify British investors in the want  of energy which they have displayed towards  this comparatively unknown   possession,   for,  apart from its  being so remote from the ken of  the  ordinary   investor,   the   claims   of   South  Africa and of other gold-bearing countries having   an   established   reputation   have   almost  entirely monopolised attention. The sinking of  United States capital in gold mining properties  in British Columbia is, of course, explicable on  the ground of the proximity of the colony to  the Republic, and of the number of miners who  are encouraged to emigrate to the colony oh  speculation. In fact, prospectors in the United  States know considerably more about the resources of British Columbia than do investors  in this country, and the activity with which  they are developing the auriferous properties is  ample proof that they afford remunerative profits upon the working. It is to be hoped that  British capitalists will give some attention to  this most proirjising appendage of the British  dominions, and thus retain a very large share  of the benefits accruing from an enterprise that  would otherwise be almost entirely monopolised  by the United States. /  As the information which they are seeking  becomes wider spread  they  will learn that the  same expressions will apply with added force to  the  silver outlook  of  the  province.    The rich  strikes  being made  almost daily will astonish  even our stolid friends who boast that they are  never astonished.  PRODUCTION, COST AND MARKET VALUE.  The market, value of any article offered for  sale must necessarily depend upon the demand  for the article, but whenever the demand is so  small that the market price*falls below actual  cost of production, the article in question will  soon drop out of market.  The history of silver is the history of every  article possessing commercial value. The actual  cost of;.producing an ounce of silver of course  varies with circumstances. There are not, perhaps, a dozen properties in the United States  carrying lead and silver alone from which silver  can be profitably produced at less than 50c. an  ounce. Many of the mines now .producing  sil ver are only rendered profitable by a small  percentage of gold found in ������������������'���������connection with  the silver and which is sufficient to make up  the difference in the cost of productioh and the  market value of the silver.  In estimating the cost of putting an ounce of  silver on the market many things must be considered. Even if the money spent in prospecting a certain locality be taken into consideration, the cost of production runs far higher than  there is any hope of ever forcing the price.  State Inspector Hutchinson, of Colorado,  states that, considering the sums spent in prospecting and development work every ounce of  silver produced in Colorado has cost $1.55  The actual production cost in, most of the  Colbrodo camps ranges from 75 to 85c. per  ounce. Very few of them could run with silver  under 70c.  In New Mexico the present price of silver will  shut down every silver property in the state.  Utah has three or four properties that can be  run with silver at 60c, but in most cases the  price of production in the mines of this territory  ranges from 65c. per ounce upwards. Vv  Montana's heaviest producers will be closed  at any figure under 75c, and very few of her  properties can be made to produce under 70c.  During the year 1892 the average commercial  value of silver was 87������c per ounce, and the output declined materially as compared with 1891  in every silver-producing section of the west  except Colorado and Montana.  In British Columbia with its rich and easily  worked deposits of ore, once the transportation  problem is solved, silver can be produced with  profit with a market even as low as 50c, so that  locally the present prices, while cutting down  profits, will not materially retard the future  development and assured prosperity of this  section.

B.   0,  SATUEDAY,  JULY   8   1893.  So Saya W. Pellew-Harvey, Assayer and Mineralogist, or Golden-He Xooks Forward to a Bnsy  Mining Season In East Kootenay, Despite the  Fluctuating Price of Silver.  W. Pellew-Harvey, of Golden, who had the  commission from the Provincial Government  for assaying all specimens of ore sent from  British Columbia to the World's Fair, was in  Nelson this week looking over the country.  Referring to  the outlook in East Kootenay,  Mr. Harvey,  in an interview with The Miner  reporter,   said :   " A great  deal  of interest is  being shown  in mining matters in East Kootenay.    On account of the low price of silver and  the probabilities of good  discoveries  of   gold  quartz,   this interest  will  probably  be stimu-  lated.     The ores of East Kootenay carry silver  in paying quantities, and invariably carry gold  to  some extent,   if not always in paying quantities.  "The McMurdo basin, named after Archie  McMurdo, one of the pioneer prospectors of the  district, has been known for a long time to contain vast quantities of auriferous quartz. Some  of the veins have been developed to a considerable extent. In one instance, on the International claim, situate at the extremity of the  basin and near the Duncan river country, there  have been taken a number of samples of 200  pounds each, which averaged in gold $108 to  the ton.  '   ....: = ���������'       ��������� ���������' . . .  "On  the  Bobbie Burns claim a great deal of  work was  done  last summer by John E. Ask-  with, of Ottawa.     He went to a great deal of  expense  in   developing the property and erecting a mill upon it, but lack of experience made  the  results  less  satisfactory than they should  have been.    The ore is a ferruginous quartz and  assays $26  in  gold,  and  it is supposed that as  they-proceed with the working arsenical pyrites  will be found, which in  previous assays carried  gold in paying quantities.  " There arecseveral other claims around these  menioned which have been bonded this season  by persons representing London syndicates as  well as local capital, snowing that the monied  men are beginning to realize that the gold properties in East Kootenay are worthy of attention, more especially so when the distance is  not more than twenty miles from steamboat  connection and about eighteen miles distant  from the main line of the C.P.R.  " On the Vermont creek several claims have  been worked, and ore is being produced and  shipped.. Last year Messrs. Wells and Pollock  realized a handsome profit on several carloads  of good silver-lead ore which was shipped to  the Tacoma smelter. They are prosecuting  work more vigorously this summer and expect  to become steady producers.  " At the Thunder Hill mine great activity  prevails. Some 45 men are engaged and 100  tons of ore are being mined daily. It is expected that the shipment of the concentrates  will be made m the course,of a week or two, and  that from this time forth the mine will bear the  reputation of toeing one of the first dividend-  paying mines in the Kootenays.  " On the North Star 20 men are employed  & and several hundred tons of ore are already on  the dump ready for transportation. The probability is that this summer, under the able  management of L. 0. Hill, the force will be  considerably increased.  Kaslo Sfcailway Sfcnmor.

Kaslo,. July'6.  Editor The Mine?-: ''  You will  probably  be  pleased  to learn that  despite the many charitable hopes that I might  break my neck  daring this last wild adventure  of mine, I am really back safe and sound in the  great metropolis of Kaslo.  My   last   letter   closed   with   the   arrival  of  " Wings " and myself, after a series of thrilling  adventures, in the town of New Denver.   Never  before have 1 known the possibilities in the way  of resistance  and  lack  of  elasticity  which lie  hidden in the pine  boards usually placed in the  bunks   in   this  country.    The  attention   of the  scientific world is hereby called to the matter,  and a hint is also thrown out that in   this  same  species of  British Columbia pine may be  found  a solution of the vexed question of impenetrable  armor plate for heavy warships.  New Denver  is  beautifully   located   on   the  shore of Slocan Lake in the midst of most picturesque surroundings. The point is a very  favorable one from which to distribute supplies  to the adjacent camps of the Slocan mining district. The work of clearing the various additions is progressing rapidly, and the ring of the  axe and the crackle of burning log heaps, combined with the general bustle of preparation,  present a very animated scene.  Taking the little steamer a visit was paid to  Four Mile City, now under the management of  the Duluth syndicate, and dignified with the  new title of Silverton. No trail has yet been  cut to connect this place with New Denver, and  the lake is the only means of communication.  The town of Silverton is at the mouth of Four  Mile creek, and is intended to supply the mines  higher up in that stream with a shipping and0  receiving point. The principal property in this  locality is the now famous Grady group of  claims'. On one of these, the Alpha, the showing is one of the strongest and probably the  richest in the district. The ore body appears to  be of immense extent, and the assay runs so  high as to startle even the most cold-blooded.  They have been known to range to over 2,000  ounces. There are a number of promising looking claims in this vicinity which are being  opened up, and some of them will no doubt give  a good account of themselves before the season  is over.  Returning to New Denver a flying trip was  taken down to Nakusp over a trail evidently  planned by someone with a deep and deadly  hatred towards his fellow man. May his rewTard  come in the shape of daily trips,over a similar  trail in a more sultry climate for an indefinite  pariod.  The citizens of Nakusp may for general purposes be divided .into two classes : those who  believe in the railroad and those who lack that  faith. The discussion between what Dean Swift  might term the Big-Endians and the Little-  Endians has been going on for some time,  as yet: no definite conclusion has been  rived at.  Taking the back trail from New Denver to  Kaslo the main feature of the trip was a visit to  the Lucky Jim mine, in which a new and magnificent strike has been recently made.  This property is located on the hdlside just  above Bear Lake. Though the trail by which it  is reached is some three-fourths of a mile in  length, the mouth of the tunnel is only 800 feet  in altitude above the level of the lake, and the  mountain side is so steep that the output of the  mine can be landed at the bottom entirely by  the gravity process.

JOTTINGS FROM THE SLOGAN  (Continued from Page 7.)  be hard to imagine. The showing here is truly  wonderful. Within 150 feet of each other are  three distinct veins, the first of which contains  six feet of ore and the others an average of ten  feet of ore,each. The six-foot vein has been  worked by two tunnels run in for 40 or 50 feet,  one but a few feet under the other. The other  and later discoveries have simply been stripped  for a distance of forty or fifty feet down the hillside. '������������������'������������������:���������''.���������".'���������'���������.'  The ore bodies occur in a lime-slate contact so  far as would appear on the sarface, though it is  possible that the lime imay be  an  overlaying  formation which will gi veway to a slate fissure".  The  walls  are  sharp and well-defined, and the  angle  of inclination in each of   three veins is,  similar.   A small iron cap covers the galena and  a thin   iron casing- runs down the hanging wall.  The galena   is   also   accompanied   by  a small  quantity of zinc.   Assays show that the ore will  average from 100 to 120 ounces.     There is, however,   ample  water power  on the property by  means  of which   the ore could be cone'entrated  verysreadily.      A careful calcnlation places  the  ore which is practically '* in sight " in this property at 5,000 tons which will average 100 ounces  to the ton.      Lying on the same gen era! course  as the veins which show in the Noble Five and  other Payne mountain properties,  and   coming  out again far below in the Mountain Chief, it is  probable that  the Lucky Jim is located.*on one  of the main lodes of the district-  As mall force of men are now at work getting  the property into shape.  Continuing down the trail, no further points  of interest were noticed, and Kaslo was reached  in the evening.   ;v  No long-er can you look down upon me from a  standpoint of venerable experience. I. too, am  now a hardy explorer and prospector, but at  what a sacrifice. My face was tanned, my  mustache uncurled for days, and, horrible to  relate, I actually returned in a rumpled collar.  If any of the" deah boys " should have seen me  I should have died of shame. However, won't  I "knock'em " when I go home and begin to  relate my experiences.

There are  now over sixty men at work in the camp.  The ore is yellow7 pyrites of copper and iron  sulphurets, carrying an average of $-10 in gold  and yielding an average of 8 per cent, copper.  Canadian Mineral Ontpuf.  The Mining and Scientific Press contains the  following summary of the Canadian mineral  production during the period from 1886 to 1892.  The figures are both interesting and instructive. /  The  production  of copper shows an increase  from $351,000 in 1886 to #1,160,710 in 1891,  but it  fell  to   $925,589   in   1892.      Gold  started  with  $1,330,182 in   1886, and t,he output  has declined  year by year, until in 1892 it amounted to $900,-  183.    The silver production in 1886 was ,$209,090,  and steadily  increased  until 1890,  when it was  $102,682, then declined to $261,510 in 1892.    Iron  ore  to the  value  of $126,982  was  produced in  1886, and has slowly increased with some fluctuations to $112,005 in 1891.   In 1892 it went up  to  $251,206.    Nickel  statistics  are  given  only for  the last three year?.      The   figures are $933,282,  $2,775,976 and  $3,513,339, a very gratifying increase.    The coal production shows an increase.  In 1886  the  value of the output was $5,917,225 ;  in   1891 it  had  gone up to $8,141,216,  but it fell  list  year  to  $7,181,610.    In mica the output in  1886 was $29,008, and it has steadily increased to  $100,923 in 1892.    The phosphate production, on  the  contrary,   is   deer-easing.      In   1886  it was  $801,638   worth ;    in   1891,    $211,603 ;    in   1892,  $137,121.    The   total  output of metallic ores in  1838    was    $2,021,518 ;    1890,   $3,570,685 ;    1891,  $5,551,105 ; 1892, $5,807,019.  The non-metallic ore production was $8,096,-  719 in 1886 ; $11,359,171 in 1891, and $13,331,267  in 1892, the largest increase being in coal.  In this connection it is well to remember that  this region was an unknown quantity at the  time the above statistics were compiled. It will  be a vei-y interesting thing to compare them  with the figures of the first twelve months following the completion of a railroad into the  Slocan mines.

MINING-   NOTES  Wardner, July 2.���������The Last Chance mill and  mine have closed down, owing to the drop  in  silver.    This  throws  between   forty and   fifty  men out of work.  The men employed in repairing and improving the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mills have  been laid off. The Bunker Hill and Sullivan  mine has laid off about half its force. A few  men are still working to completetheir contracts. When the contract work is finished all  will probably be laid off.  But two or three men are now at work on the  Sierra Nevada, so the mine is practically closed  down.  Miners are leaving the Oceur d'Alenes in large  numbers, sixty-two passing through from Wallace on Friday last. Wardner streets are almost  deserted. _____________  Fairview Camp, B.C., July 1.���������Geo. Attwood,  manager for the English syndicate owning  mines here, is at Sicamous on his way back  from England, where he has been to perfect his  arrangements for the purchase and shipment of  his 100-stamp mill and the three and one-half  miles of tramway which will convey the ore  from the mines to the mill about to be erected  on the Okanagan riwr below camp.  W. H. Mead, of Spokane, has been doing some  o-ood work at Fairview Camp. He has several  men at work on some promising claims. Mr.  Mead has been compelled to stop work for the  present on account of water in the Last Chance  shaft. He has a fine ledge in the bottom of the  shaft* which shows some fine gold and a large  quantity of black sulphurets that will run quite  high in silver. Mead and his partner sunk a  shaft to the depth of 24 feet on the Alpin mine,  which has a small ledge running high in gold.

Mr. Davie  thinks the time opportune for negotiations to  be opened up with a view to the betterment of  our relations with the sister colonies, even to  sending a ministerial deputation to Australia.  Hon. Mackenzie Bowell expressed himself  strongly in favor of something being done in  the direction indicated. He said when Sir John  Thompson returned from Paris the Government  would consider the matter.  Dan iirnn's I/sick.

Prof. Parks, mining expert for Montana capitalists, is in Nelson.  J. H. Bowes and A. M. Johnson were away on  a business trip to Bonner's Ferry.  Henry Sheran,   with  R. E. Lemon,  purposes  opening an hotel at New Denver.  The  Nelson  Fire  Brigade meet in the Board  of, Trade rooms to-night at 8 o'clock.  John  Humer  has  opened the Vienna bakery  on Baker street, just east of Josephine street.  A. M. Esler, of Helena, Mont., who is interested m mining properties, has secured some  promising prospects in the Slocan district.  Manley Simpson, who is a student of electrical engineering at the Leland-Stanford University, of Palo Alto, Cal., will spend the summer  in Nelson.  Miss Leigh-Spencer, special travelling agent  of the New York Mutual Life Insurance Company, is in Nelson on a business trip for that  corporation.  The Shafer Gold Mining Company have  suspended work on their 3000-foot tunnel at Ains-  .  worth  until  such time as silver is placed on an  established basis.  M. S. Davys, the Nelson assayer, has had his  furnace at work this week on samples of ore  from the Duncan river conntry and also on  samples from Hall creek.  J. Gabbutt, the Spokane mining expert and  mineralogist, passed through Nelson last week  after making an examination of some placer  claims on the Salmon River for some local  investors.  Jack Seaton, who was with Eli Carpenter  when that worthy made the first discovery in  the Slocan, died in Spokane last week. Seaton  was one of the owners of the Noble Five group  of mines in the Slocan.  The Slocan Prospector is the name of W. D.  Pratt's newpaper at New Denver. In its first  issue it strkes a rich vein of news iu a body of  common-sense that may show good assays for  the editor if he opens up well.  Thos. N. Simpson, Winnipeg, will locate in  Nelson for a few months, and give his personal  attention to the business of the insurance company, for which he is travelling superintendent.  He is accompanied by his wife and son.  The railway construction wagon road is now  built for some miles past the Salmon river, and  prospectors bound for the placer mines on Hall  creek and the Salmon find it much easier for  packing supplies than going over the trail.  Frank Fletcher has sent up men and supplies  for development work on his Hall creek gold  claim. The assays and report of Jim Gab butt,  the Spokane mining expert, have attracted considerable attention to Mr. Fletcher's property.  The Dominion day celebration committee  worked the financial ends of the fun so well  that they only lack $48.50 in making both ends  meet. It is thought that this amount will be  made smaller on the sale of the timber in the  dancing pavilion.  G. H. Andrews has struck what looks like a  very wealthy vein of gold ore on his claim, the  Goodenough, which is situate on the old Hall  trail, about three miles from Nelson. Andrews  has spent three years opening up his claim, and  all who have watched his progress in pushing  the long tunnel through surface showings that  would satisfy less persevering miners will be  pleased to hear of his strike.  J. C. Andrews, with Wilson & Williamson,  Nelson, was the largest cash prize winner in the  athletic games on Dominion day, with Jim  Bates, of Kaslo, second. Wilson & Perdue's  string of horses carried off all but two of the  prizes for horse racing.  Jim Shields, one of the original locators of  the Lucky Jim, in the Slocan, is now in the  Trail Creek district, and in company with Bruce  White, of Spokane, has located a likely quartz  vein on Sharp Creek. The ore, which carries  gold, has been sent in for assay.  Collector Johnstone, of Nelson, had $1500 on  deposit in the Emerson branch of the Commercial Bank of Manitoba, which closed its doors  this week. The head office of the bank was in  Winnipeg, and branches were established in  nearly every town in the Province of Manitoba.  >-^Av^--'Vv     NOTICE.

Since the first day of July Nelson has been a  Customs outport.     The State of Idaho was the6  first boat in this week, she having cleared from  Bonner's Ferry to Nelson.  The change will give rise to some grave com-  plications if the Customs-regulations are carried  out, but although the Collector must have  known -this He has not-deemed it worth while  forwarding any instructions to Sub-Collector  Johnstone, nor have the Federal authorities in  the East.  The cargoes of incoming steamers should be  landed and entered, but there is nothing in the  shape of a bonded warehouse handy. However, if this provision is enforced it may work a  hardship on the steamboat State of Idaho, as  she, being an American bottom, may not be  allowed to pick her through cargo up and.carry  it on to its ultimate destination without coming  within the meaning of the term " coasting.'  Officer Johnstone was interviewed with respect to this possible entanglement, and he  replied that as he had no orders of any description since Nelson became an outport he would  continue the old practice of passing the goods  on board, as any other method might work a  hardship both on the steamboat company and  the Kootenay Lake merchants to whom the  goods are consigned.

Had the Gold Commissioner neglected to visit  the road builders it is not unlikely that the road  would have been carried up the mountain side  into the Payne mine. The mine owners were  pledged to bonus the road with several thousand tons of ore:���������when it is completed to their  satisfaction, and the Gold Commissioner is  of  tht.  opinion  that  they  were  in  a fair way of  being satisfied if they ever meant to be.  The Commissioner now assures the construction of the Kaslo, wagon road to New Denver,  provided the assistance which has been volunteered is forthcoming when the New Denver  section of the road is reached.
