NELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   MAY 27, 1893.  U A YEAE  TENDEKFOOT'S KASLO NOTES  KASLO MAKES A LITTLE NOISE AND CELE-  BEATES OONSIDEEABLY.  The Mild-Mannered Flat Gives Some Pointers on the  General Course of'.Events In and Around the  Noisy City���������A little Side Show Which is Now  Reing Run���������A Painful Accident While Racing-.  Kaslo' just now is gazing away at the far-off  snow-clad ranges and wishing she had a mighty  chunk of that glittering mass to clap upon her  fevered brow. In other words the town is still  struggling with the after effects of the very  hilarious and enjoyable time with which the  Queen's birthday was celebrated.  The town  was handsomely   decorated  with  flags and bunting and presented a truly holiday  appearance, as the large delegation from Nelson  which went up to assist, in the festivities drew  near the Dock. Oh, bless you, yes, gentle  stranger, we Have a dock with a big D.  George O. Buchanan read, a very able address  of welcome to all who caredcto listen to it, and  those who did not missed a really good thing.  The forenoon was occupied in a great variety  of athletic sports during the progress of which  it became evident that some fairly good talent  in their lines can be found among the boys of  Kaslo.  The brass  band   was  on   its  bes t behaviour  and nearly all day the members quite graciously consented  to play the same selections at the  same time.    Towards night, however, the heat  of the of the day proved too much for them and  some  of them  sought relief from overstrained  nerves  by  branching out into individual selection.     Small  fragments of Giant powder were  let off from time to time, and while this seemed  to relieve the feelings of those who felt  unable  to do justice to the occasion by personal  yells,  still at the same time they jarred on the sensitive nerves of others.  The afternoen was taken up with boat races,  horse races, and incidentally mentioning to  visitors that "Kaslo has come to stay." I am  pained to be forced to state that more attention  was paid to .the horse races than to the oft-  repeated sketches of future glory.  The pleasure of the afternoon was marred by  a painful and well-nigh fatal accident which  took place on the impromptu race course.  Frank Hughes was riding up and down the  track trying to keep back the crowd which was  pressing within the lines. It appears that  while he was directing his attention elsewhere  the starterssent ofr* a bunch of horses. These  came down the course and before Hughes could  get out of the way they charged into his animal.  A son of J. M. Burke, the banker, was riding  oue of the horses, and being thrown violently  sustained a broken collarbone and badly bruisea*  leg and ankle. Another rider who was thrown  fortunately escaped with a bad shaking up and  a few bruises. One of the horses was found to  be so badly injured that it w7as necessary to  shoot it at once.  The waters of the Upper country are becoming more and more dangerous every day owing  to the increased amount of drift coming in from  the streams going up so rapidly. A man named  McKillop was drowned in the Lardo river several days ago. He and a partner named Elliott  were overturned by a drifting log. Elliott clung  to the log and was finally rescued by a party  passing up the river. .  Gangs of men are being made up almost daily  to go out into various parts of the couutry for  the purpose of getting the trails into condition.  About a score of men have been sent up to  Argenta to put the Duncan river trails into  shape.  And still the Kaslo sideshow to the South  Kootenay Board of Trade goes on.   Outside the  tattered tent are set forth in more than life-size  daubs supposed to represent the wonders within. And the voice of the man at the door is  never silent. The innocent visitor from the  back country is assured that there is " plenty  of time before the big show begins," and if he  appears to be sufficiently verdant he may even  be assured in mysterious tones that " There  ain't no big show." The services of a hand  organ have been dispensed with as the man at  the door was found quite able to make all the  noise necessary.  His eloquence in describing the many attractions of his show is at times touching in its  pathos. Beneath this flowery ladguage there is  a rinn of sorrow, and sometimes a faraway look  comes into the eyes of the showman, as if he  had been inside and knew only too well how  little the pictures along the walls oj the tent  represent what is to be seen inside. But also as  many another it is not a matter of choice.  Bread and butter depend upon the strength of  his lungs, and shaking off his dapondency he  yells again louder than before.  The saddest part of it is that but few seem to  be influenced by all his racket. At long intervals an over-confident person wander over,  gives up his coin and passes from view behind  the tattered tent flap, only to appear again  looking as if he had forgotten something and  was in a hurry to get back.  A Flat Minor.  BY MEANS OP GIANT POWDEE.  _>ich Hughes, of Kaslo,   Tries to Blow Himself  and  Family into Eternity.  A man named Dick Hughes is now lying in a  dying condion at the Nelson- jail. He was  brought down from Kaslo suffering from the  result of injuries received from an explosion of  Giant powder, by means of which he had  planned to destroy himself and family.  So far   as   can be learned from those who  something  of the history of the man, and the  contents of a letter discovered on  his person  after his arrival fin  Nelson the rash  act   was  caused through the influence of jealousy. ?  It appears that for some reason Hughes became suspicious that all was not as it should be  between himself and wife.  This idea so preyed upon his mind that he  resolved to destroy not only himself, but his  wife and infant child as well. As a result he-  procured a stick of. giant powder, and on the  night of the 23rd hist, arranged to carry his  plan into effect. A fuse was attached to the  powder, which was concealed at the head of the  bed under the pillows.  After Hughs and his wife had retired for the,  night the fuse was lighted and the man lay in  momentary expectation of death. The " spitting " of the fuse aroused his wife who got up  to find the cause of the noise. She was far  enough away to receive no injury when the explosion occurred. The child also escaped in  some way and seems to be suffering scarcely  any ill ���������������ffects from the concussion.  Hughs was severely stunned and is suffering  from concussion of the brain, which will in all  probability prove fatal within the next few  days.

Mr. Wright had been away for a month, and  during his absence he awakened considerable  interest in the Kootenay country among the  capitalists of the Puget Sound district.  The Claim Allowed.  From advice received in Nelson lately there isr  no longer any doubt as to the correctness of the  telegrams from Premier Davie and Commissioner Gore stating that McGillivray's claim  to the land of the New Denver townsite has  been allowed. By this act the Premier must be  credited with an amount of firmness which  some were reluctant to give when the claim was  first made. The majority of the people in this  section were of the opinion that McGillivray's  claim was a just one, but of doubtful outcome.  That it has been allowed speaks well for the  powers that be.  It is understood that from now on the new  town will be pushed ahead as rapidly as is consistent with solid growth.  A number of new lines of business will be  opened and extensixe improvements made all  along the line. This town should give a good  account of itself during the next twelve  months.  wMM^mmmmmmmmMmi^^ [������������������������'���������  :#���������  I' r'  f������ibiB*5__S3iSi*5������^^  TW������^.iUKg*___^g__e__MyH_^.M_van man-im*.  t^*������������S^������*������ij^^r-s^wq������������7CT  w*g^t-w_ra__������u>������������t ������������_;_���������*!*_,  a^_MTMm^a.'aa,--^���������* ���������������������.. * -a t*--T"ft' i1"^--;:'. :,r\~  THE MINES : NELSON, B. 0.,  SATUEDAY MAY 27, 1893.  fa N  6:  I. ::  f  it1  I  1.*  Messrs.

SHOULD   STUDY THE SITUATION.  , That, the citizens of California are waking up  at, last to the evils of the anti-debris laws which  have  for years  practically paralyzed the chief  mining  interests   of   that great state, is a sign  which* w7ill  be   received   with   satisfaction   by  mining men throughout the country generally.  It will be hailed as an indication that at last one  of  the  most  important factors in the material  prosperity of any country fortunate enough to  be possessed  of it,   has  begun to receive such  public  attention  as will  soon   force   reluctant  and tardy legislation in its behalf.  .  ,The  difficulty  has   always been the lack of a  just   appreciation   of the relation between mining and   other  branches  of   productive  enterprise.      If an acre of ground  lias been cleared  and sown  in  wheat, the annual crop of which  is worth $50, and represents that much wealth  added   yearly   to   that already possessed by the  community, it   might follow that, if every acre  in   the country was producing" in a like manner  and  all  just sufficient  for  the public need, it  would  be  wise to let the situation remain unchanged.     But if it is a fact that, many acres of  the pround are idle for want of adequate return  for their products,   then   the   discovery  that  beneath the surface of  one of these acres lies a  body of metal, which by common consent will  represent   the  agriciilturarproduction of many  such  areas,  becomes a matter of great relative  importance.  Possessed of a -.-medium of exchange new  industries spring into existence and the thousand wheels of commerce begin to revolve. The  trouble is that in nearly every case the owners  of the acres surrounding that on which the discovery was made have combined to legislate  against the best interests of the very means  whereby their own conditions have been bettered. The mine owner in the hopeless minority  is forced to submit to the enactment of laws  made to govern his business by a band of men  who neither understand nor sympathize with  his endeavors. Not only this, but failing to  understand the importance of the industry, or  indifferent to its needs, they continue year after  year in the same course which often results in  the almost total annihilation of that which they  should have used every effort to promote.  This is one of the principal reasons why our  mining laws are often so inadequate to the  accomplishment of the desired end.  In the promisad visit of Premier Davie to  this part of the province and his avowed intention to meet with the people for the discussion  of various matters of interest locally, it is to be  hoped has dawned a day of better things for  this section. "'  If he and others interested in the legislative  affairs of the province would only come up and  see for themselves the needs of this region the  result could not fail to be beneficial. It is not  so much a lack of willingness on their part as it-  is a Jack of that knowledge which can only be  drawn from personal observation, which causes  the best interests of the most valuable portion  of the province to be neglected. It is to be  hoped cind believed that the results of this visit  will be materially beneficial at future sessions  of the legislative body.  Those who expect to meet with the Premier  should carefully think over the situation and  not only be prepared to furnish all required  information, but to point out the most pressing  needs of this section and the best means for  relieving the same.  If this is properly done there will be no doubt  in future as to where the blame should rest if  no improvements are apparent.  A WORD TO PROSPECTORS. .  As the mining regions of British Columbia  become- more and more developed there will  necessarily be from time to time presented for  solution the same old problems which havebeen  wrestled with for generations in every mining  community. Among these is always the rela-  tions of the prospector and the speculative  buyer.  It is quite natural that the one who penetrates the rugged ranges and untracked passes  of a new country, and at the almost daily peril  of his life demonstrates to the world that he  has discovered valuables before unknown,  should feel inclined to believe that to him first  of all should come the rewards of the discovery.  Day after day trudging under a heavy pack,  and trailing along the mountain side, the prospector comes upon surface indications of some  precious metal. There it is, but to what, extent  or value cannot be known without a further  expenditure of time and money. This the  prospector, often finds beyond his means, and  the result is a search for a purchaser. Now the  locator of the claim has good reason to believe  he has a good thing in sight, and when the  investor comes along he is inclined to hold out  for a stiff price. " This man who comes to buy  me out," thinks the prospector, " has taken  none of the many chances which I had to take  in acquiring this property, and if he wants it  let him pay for it."  Now/while it is well and right that the  locator should get every dollar justly his, some  care is necessary to see that the would-be investor, unwilling to risk his money in what to him  is an uncertain venture, goes elsewhere with  his capital, and leaves the country undeveloped  and the locator with what is to him an unproductive, and therefore comparatively valueless,  property on his hands.  In this connection the San Francisco Mining  and Scientific Press very justly says :  Owners of prospects should remember that  the other fellow must take some chances if he  buys their claims. " Therefore the prices asked  ought to be less than what the whole mine is  worth after it is developed. A claim may  develop into a mine, and then again it may  amount to nothing more than a hole in the  ground. These chances have to be taken by  the man who buys a prospect and should be  taken fully into consideration by those who  have such claims to sell. It is foolish, therefore,  to put the price of a developed claim on to  what is merely a prospect. But it is'doing this  which keeps miners poor and investors away.  As there appears just now a good chance to sell  gold prospects in this state, it is to be hoped  their owners will be reasonable and not demand such exorbitant prices as to discourage  buyers*  This  is equally   true  of British Columbia at  the present time, though as yet most of the  locators have shown a disposition to give others  a chance. It should never be forgotten that  one paying, developed mine largely increases  the value of every claim in its vicinity.  Give  those a chance  who are willing to help  with this development.  THE, QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY.  SmiEi/Y/, if the spirit of Queen Victoria could  have been wafted to this section, on the occasion of her seventy-fourth birthday the result  would have been quite satisfactory. Not that  much fuss was inade over the matter, but "because in a community where there are gathered  representatives from most of the civilized  nations the feeling of respect and veneration  was so unanimously expressed on all sides.  It is the fortune of but few  rulers to so conduct themselves and the affairs  of their people  through  a long  reign as to win. not  only  the  affectionate regard of their own people, but the  admiration   and   respect  of ,even   those   most  hostile to the form of government   which  they  represent.      This position   has  long ago   been  universally accorded  to  Queen   Victoria,   and  each passing year only adds to the loyalty  and  regard  felt  for a  wise and kindly ruler and  a  noble woman.  The proposed visit of President Van Home,  of the C.P.R., will be watched with interest by  those who have investments in this region.  Some very important measures may be expected to result from the observations he proposes to make.  MY LOVE IN THE WEST.  South, that is scented with flowers and vine,  Sing with your mocking birds, bloom with your best  ���������Roses, sweet south !   Waft your love and waft mine  To my love in the West.  Flame with your marigolds, south till you light  All the way with them, and dreaming and blest  Render the splendor of lillies of white  To my Love in the West.  Winnow your glorious garden where drips  The dawn-dreaming dew from the rose's red breast,  Till your rival red roses climb up to the lips  Of my love in the West.  Beams of you, dreams of you, gleams of you, sweel  South of my singing, have glory unguessed ;  But my dreams will be sweet when you hear, my.heartbeat  With my love's in the West, [New Poet,  This recognition of merit comes none too soon  to check the growing tendency of Western  swains to dash over the border and lay court to  down-east femininity, oblivious to the existence at home of the rarest, the sweetest, the  most vivacious girls that ever masticated guin  or fluttered at a matinee.��������� Spokane lie view.  If his " love in the west" but casts her ocular  demonstrators upon those lines and survives  she should be presented with a starry crown of:  priceless gems���������Montana sapphires. Then, too,  this young man's lines are so beautifully indefinite. He leaves the imagination to wander over  about seventeen states, although we have a  strong suspicion that he refers te Missoula. Can  he be a modern Don Juan and wish to include  all the dear girls in the West ? The young man  should follow Horace Greeley's advice and come  west. He would be a howling success in any  country.���������Missoula Western Democrat.  Shake, friend ! Most of us have felt that way  at some time in our lives, but unfortunately  only the: gifted few can wail their wail so tune  fully. It's a safe proposition that the young  man has been compelled by force of circumstances to take a trip to the far East, and  amidst its pale, placid and painfully particular  maidens he has missed the frank smile and  cheery ways of the Western girls who are  neither ashamed to be healthy nor afraid to be  pleasant.

From Our Own Correspondent.  Revelstoke, May 24.���������Louis Mason, who is  well known in the Big Bend district, brought  his life to an end on Monday afternoon at the  Columbia hotel. After going about during the  forenoon he went to bed before dinner and complained-about being sick. The cook took up a  plate of soup, but the sick man refused to eat.  Later in the afternoon another visit was made  to his room but the door was locked and aq,  entry had to be effected by way of the window.  Mason's face was found to be very much swollen and no statement could be got from him as  to what was wrong with him. Dr. McLean was  immediately sent for, but by the time he arrived  medical aid was of no avail.     The post-mortem  examination disclosed that death, had been  caused by drugs administered apparently by  the hand of the deceaied with the intent of taking his own life.  Louis Mason came to this country from New7  Orleans, and has been mostly engaged in prospecting in the Big Bend country, in which district he recently sold some of his interests and  has been in town over a month, during which  time he lias spent a large sum of money in  various ways. Very little money was found on  his person and nothing to show the cause of the  rash act.  R. A. Ren-wick, of The Miner, passed through  Revelstoke on Monday en route for the Coast.  The temporary bridge over the Illecillewaet  was swept away last week by an unexpected  rise in the river. The bridge was constructed-  by the saw7 mill people last winter and was used  by them and the ranchers living across the  river.  The celebration of Her Majesty's birthday  was observen to some extent, but there was not  much excitement. Races and general sports  were the principal part of the amusement during the afternoon.  President VanHorne, of the C.T\R. and party  passed through here in a special last night. It  expected much good will result to the Kootenay  district when the famous magnate looks into  the prospects of trade in that quarter and uses  his influence as[he will no doubtMo to push the  Arrow Lake branch line.

As was stated in last week's Miner a movement is on foot <o call the attention of the  next .grand jury to the existence of certain immoral institutions in this district. The first  steps in thip direction were taken during the  early part of the week, when the following  petition was left in nearly all the principal  places of business for, signatures :  PETITION :  To the Grand Jury in Session at Nelson, May jot/i, 1893.  The following* statement of grievances and  petition  is most respectfully, submitted :  Your petitioners humbly direct your attention to the large increase of women and children to our population during the past year and  the cousequent advisability of. stricter regard  for public decency.  Whereas, the sale of liquor, contrary to law,  < which   is  manifestly  unfair  to licensed hotels,  is carried on.in many places in Nelson ; and  Whereas these places are notoriously, well  known to be brothels and houses of prosti-  tion ; and  Whereas these houses are not confined,  as formerly, to one locality���������a fact that threatens the commercial stability of property ; and  Whereas one such house on Victoria street,  Nelson, is a standing menace to public decency  and safety, as it is surrounded by families of  women and children ;  and  , Whereas a grave danger seems to threaten  us in the establishment of places of resort  ostensibly known as theatres, but in reality  are places for the sale of liquor by the disgraceful method of ���������' box rustling," locally so  called, one such place having already obtained  a foothold in your district,  Your petitioners earnestly and respectfully  do pray that you make investigation, and that  you do take immediate steps to remove these  abuses, which render the moral and commercial welfare of the community insecure ; and  your petitioners will ever pray :  The petition has been received with special  marks of favor and likewise of strong disapprobation. The house on Victoria street, it is generally conceded, should be moved to some more  retired spot, but as to the rest the opinion  seems to be that these things can be left to the  jury without special attention being called to  them. It is probable, however, that the petition will have some eit'ect.  JVaKusp ������������ Slocan Railway.  Tenders are called for the construction oj the  Nakusp & Slocan railway.

The   Kootenay   Hydraulic   Company,    after  spending  nearly  $50,000 on their property,   is  almost  ready  to  begin work.     The  claims  of  this company are located on the north bank of,  the Pend  d'Oreille  river,  about nine miles up  from  Wan eta.     A shaft is down about 90 feet,  and no bed rock in sight.      The same company  has a saw mill, boarding house, and offices two  miles out from Wan eta. The mill will cut fifty  thousand feet of lumber or more here, and will  then be moved over on the Salmon river. A.  greater portion of the flu ne is now completed,  and will soon be carrying water to the two  monitors of five streams each, which the company proposes to put in. The general manager,  Geo. J. Goodhue, is an American inventor who  has, among other things, patented several gold  mining devices which will "be used on the works.  He is now on the grounds and will personally  superintend the work during the season. Prospects which have been made in a number of  places on the lands of the company have  resulted in nearly 20 small bottles of gold dust  ranging all the ! way from flour to flake gold.  Experts who "have carefully examined the  ground estimate that it will average from $20 to  $25 per cubic yard, and that the deposit is sufficiently large not to be washed over in less than  a lifetime.

This is therefore to notify you accordingly  and to request you to hand over*to the undersigned all books, monies, and other properties  of the Board that may now be in your possession or under your control, on or before the  23rd inst. Yours, etc.,  William Baillle,  Secretary South Kootenay Board of Trade.  To G. A. Bigelow,' Nelson, B.C.  Immediately upon receipt of the above Secretary Bigelow, after shedding a few manly tears  over the loss of his office, proceeded to gather  up the effects mentioned. A casket of solid  silver from the "Silver King was constructed to  prder to contain the  material asked  for.    This  casket was a most beautiful example of the  silversmith's art, The hinges, straps and locks  were of gold from the mines around Nelson,  On the top of this box is chased a sketch of the  railroad terminus at Nelson, and Nelson as a  port of entry is the subject of the front panel.  Kaslo in 12 months is represented by the back  panel, which is not etched at. all. The roseate  hue of things at Nelson is symbolized by a ruby  cross on the front, while the back or Kaslo  panel contains a circle of sapphires indicative of  Vv everlasting blueness.  Ln  addition   to  the  goods asked for several-  diamond  crowns were placed within as a possible  inducement  for some of the crowd to seek  their future home as soon as possible.  This casket was sent at once to Kaslo by a  specially chartered steamer and everyone is  waiting to hear the echo of the chorus sure to  greet it on its arrival.  p.S.���������The above is what the Kaslo people  expected, but a little delay has occurred in the  programme. Have patience, brothers, and we  will hurry it along.  -.Distinguished Visitors.  The increasing: attention which this section is attracting  in the outside worldis being shown just now by the influx  of distinguished visitors who are coming to " spy out the  land." Within the next ten days Nelson will be visited  by several parties of gentlemen who represent in one way  and another a very lark amount of capital, some of which  will undoubtedly find investment in this vicinity.  NELSON A PORT  OP ENTRY  'While no official information has been received locally  as to the truth of the press despatches from Ottawa announcing that Nelson had been made a port of entry,,  there seems to be no doubt that it is correct. Officials  here say that it is in direct line with, what has been under  consideration for some time. Verily, things are beginning  to come our way.  Miles from JLardo.  Prospectors and mining men are pouring into  the Trout Lake district daily. Present indications are distinctly favorable!. Spence and Carpenter's ledge has been  prospected for 1,000 feet and shows strong in copper. Bart-  lett and son, of Pilot Bay, who bought an interest in this  claim last winter, are more than satisfied with their investment.  The thirty-five mile trail from Kootenay Lake to Arrow  Lake has been allowed to get'in bad repair, but a little  judicious work will put it in good shape. John Sanderson  has a gang of men at work upon it.  From Kootenay Lake to Trout -Lake is an easy two days'  journey, and by pack horses can be done in one day. It is  the best route from Kootenay Lake into the Lardo district.  Travellers will find good accommodation at the stopping  places of Pearson and Barlett, and H. P. Jackson's hotel at  the foot of Trout Lake.  A trail is being built connecting Lardo with Duncan  City. The distanee is ten miles. This will give Lardo a  good position with regard to the whole Duncan~ river  country.  The, Lardo and Duncan rivers are now impassable to  boats.  Sayward Snap Snots.  Latest accounts from Sayward are a very encouraging  nature. A number of buildings are in process of erection.  Among these are two hotels, which will be completed in  about two weeks.  The land is being cleared rapidly and a portion of the  timber utilized in putting up cordwo'od for the C. & K.  steamers. Contractor Larson has four log houses and  some tents erected for the storing of supplies and feed for  his railroad gangs.  The Nelson & Fort Sheppard tracks is now up as far as  the Pend d'Oreille bridge, and the material to complete  T  To Augustus Carney, of the Town off Kaslo, in Kootenay District, of British Columbia, and Albert  Barrett, of the Town of Nelson, in said Kootenay  District, and tlte Bank of Montreal, at the said  Town of Nelson, and all Others Whom it May in  Anywise Concern :  Notice is hereby given that under and by virtue of a  power of sale contained in a certain indenMire of mortgage bearing date the twenty-fifth day of November, in  the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and  ninety-two, and duly registesed in the office for the Registration of Deeds at the City of Victoria, in said Province  of British Columbia in Charge Book, Vol. 12, Folio 11, and  numbered 138D0, and made between the said Augustus  Carney and Albert Barrett, therein described as of the  saip town of Nelsod, merchants, of the first part, and  Malcolm Mclnnes and Patrick Burns, of the town of Calgary, in the District of Alberta, one of the Territories of  the Canadian North-West, cattle dealers, parties therein  of the second part, there will for the purpose of satisfying  the moneys secured by said mortgage, default having been  made in the payment thereof, be sold at Public Auction at  the premises herein described, on Thursday, the sixth  day op Jcjiy next, at ten o'clock in the forenoon, the  lands and premises mentioned and described in said  indenture and mortgage as follows :  " Those lots of land situate in the said town of Nelson,  "and numbered lots two and three in block twelves as  " said lots and block are marked out on the official map or  "plan of the said town of Nelson," together with all  houses, buildings, edificos and privileges thereto belonging.

When the road  crosses the river, up will go several of t.he little temporary  towns along the line and everything will be concentrated  at Sayward. This town will probably be the end of river  navigation, as it is-the most accessible point which avoids  the low water in the spring.  Seven claims for placer grounds here have been located  on the Salmon river, and there is every appearance of considerable successful work being done.  ffew Denver Notes.  F. M. Chadbourn, who is interested in the Reid & Robinson mine, returned to Nelson from New! Denver this  week. He is quite enthusiastic over the prospects ahead  of New Denver, and is sure it is going to be the mining  town of the Slocan country.        - ".,;.'  There are men at work on.the Reid & Robinson mine.  The snow is fast .disappearing from the hills, a disapi  pearance which will meet with the strong approval of  some three or four hundred prospectors who are waiting  to get up in the hills.  It is thought that work of more or less raagnifude will  be carried on this season in twenty-five of the mines im:  mediately contiguous to New Denver.  In all 919 claims have been recorded on the New Denver  side of the Slocan slope.  Eighteen men are. at work repairing the trail between  New Denver and Nakusp. When this is finished the  Nakusp will be preferable to the Slocan Crossing trail, as  it is much shorter:      ^  AUCTSOMEERS  AND  We will sell by  _������B/BI<_��������� AUCTION l>y order .of  Messrs-,A.
