BAKER   STREET,
NELSON.   B. C.

N. & PT. S. WHISTLES WILL TOOT IN
THE TOWN OP NELSON.
The Trade Laying Would ��eenpy Only a
Week but There arc Tour lirirtgcs to he
HSuilt���An All-Winter Konfe Will he
Hailed with Delight.
If there is no change in the present
programme laid out by president Cor-bin
of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railroad
the. first train will be run to Nelson on
December 1st. The track laying would
not occupy so much of the time, in fact
could be finished in a week, but there
are four bridges yet to be built, and
these cannot be finished much before the
first of the month.
The N. & F. S. road will connect with
the Spokane & Northern at Marcus.
The usual service will be continued between Spokane and Marcus during the
winter, but the train over this end of
the road will probably be up one day
and back the next, at least until spring
when a daily service will be put on.
The road will reduce the run from Nelson to Spokane to eight hours..- Close
connections will be made with the boats
and Kaslo should be reached in about
eleven hours from Spokane. The winter terminus of the road will beat five
mile point, and not until next spring
will the road roach the level of the town.
The entire road is about 200 miles long,
and the heaviest grades are a few miles
out from Nelson on the Salmon river
summit. The greatest elevation reached
by the road is about 3600 feet above the
sea level.
The road is bonded for $20,000 per
mile, its cost of construction being about
the average for such routes through the
mountains. A- considerable amount of
traffic is expected by the owners of the
road for the winter, as most of the Slocan business men , have laid in short
stocks instead of the heavy ones of last
winter, as thejr now depend on the road.
It is not cilone as a means of all the
year round communication with the
outside world that the N. & F. S. will be
valuablecto Nelson. Tin's road will run
through some of the most promising
placer and hydraulic ground in the province. Those, "diggings" were known to
be good many years ago, but were abandoned owing to the fact that being far
removed from any base of supplies, and
difficult of access, expenses of working
them were brought up to such a high
point as to eat up the margin of profit.
Lately these grounds have been opened again with most encouraging results,
and now that provisions and all kinds of
tools and supplies can be landed at their
doors, those who have claims in this
part should be able to do well. This region is naturally tributary to Nelson,
and its prosperity would materially advance our own.
discussed. A design of a miner, waiting
to load up a steamer with "sacks of ore
was submitted by the committee, talked
over and tabled.
The "Scotty" affair, noted elsewhere,
was then temporarily disposed of by being referred to the city's legal light.
O. T. Stone and G. T. Kane were
named as a licensing board, and Mr.
Stone was duely selected for treasurer,
and will henceforth look out for the city
funds.
The council extended a pressing invitation to A. Fletcher and J. Walmsley
to take the organization of a fire brigade, pledging their support.
SILVEE NOT SHELVED
It Will Come up Again at the Regular Session
of Congress.
Washington, Nov. 8,���There are rumors that Vodrhees will introduce a
free coinage silver bill at the opening of
the regular session. Voorhees declines
to talk about the matter, but it is pointed out that he has always been an
alleged silver man, and has declared during the debate on the repeal bill, that he
was "no less ��� the friend of silver than
before.
At any rate it is thoroughly understood that the silver question is not
shelved by the passage of the repeal bill.
On the contrary, the silver men say the
fight has only begun. When congress
assembles they propose to keep it well to
the front in connection with every
great issue between the parties, from the
tariff to the repeal of the federal election laws.
Every page of the tariff discussed will
be punctuated by pertinent queries by
the silver men tending to prove that it
was the demonetization of silver, and
not the McKinley tarifi, which caused
the financial depression.
Indeed it is intended that the silver
men shall act as a body of obstructionists, as did the Parnellites iu parliament
till silver shall receive a hearing.
CRASHING ON THE CLIFFS
THE ILL-PATED STEALER IDAHO IS
A TOTAL WRECK.
Only a Most Fortunate Chance Saved All on
Board from a Watery Grave. The Cargo
Was _ight and Tart of it Will Probably
be Saved.
PROM THE DARDANELLES
Further Shipments of First Class Ore From
This Property.
Late information from the Slocan is
to the effect that two shipments of ore
amounting to 40 tons, have just been
made from the Dardanelles mine. The
ore went out by way of Bonner's Ferry
en route for Great Falls, Montana. In
all this makes about, six car-loads of ore
shipped by this property. The returns
on the various shipments have ranged
from 248 ounces to 500 ounces per ton in
silver'.
There is now about three feet of snow
at the Dardanelles, and the weather is
growing colder- every day. A solid and
lasting freeze is expected and anxiously
looked for just now. The roads'are in
very bad condition owing to the recent
rains, and a cold snap would be of great
benefit, to the mines. The Dardanelles
is at present, employing '25 men, and
; his force may be; increased as the winter advances.
"MINER NOTWITHSTANDING."
THRIVING THREE PORES
The Ontrai I'oint of She  .Sioran   is  (.s-owing
Very   SCapirfly.
Among the various progressive points
in the Slocan, the Three Forks appears
to be easily holding its own. A gentleman recently from that point reports
that some 35 houses have been built, in
the,Forks during the past month.
The Galena Bay Trading Company
have erected a large, store in which they
will carry a general stock. Mi-. Pitts is
running a gent's furnishings store, and
R. E. Lemon a general merchandise
establishment fully stocked, so that the
Three Fork ers should not lack for supplies during the winter-.
This point is especially convenient to
most of the leading Slocan mines, and
the business men of the place should do
a good trade with the miners and construction gangs, as a number of men
will be kept busy in the neighborhood
all winter.
S.raisgeBy     Httough   She    Deputy   Attorney-
Cueiierai   Says the  Same.
When the Nelson   authorities refused
to take one of Kaslo's vags under-  their
tender care, and promptly handed  him
back the  Fxaminer   grew   very    warm
in the collar-, and hinted that the mayor
knew what he was about, "the-MiNKR
to the contrary" notwithstanding. Now
the city council of thai great and only
burg have, received a communication
from A. G. Smith, Deputy Attorney-
General, saying "that he could not see
what other- course, was open to the government agent at Nelson than to send
the. prisoner back to Kaslo."
The council promptly resolved to "sass
back" and the mallei-will be placed in
the hands of their solicitor- "the Deputy
Attornev-General notwithstanding."
The steamer State of Idaho is a total
wreck.
Ever since this vessel was welcomed
in Kaslo by the booming of anvils cand
the wail of brass bands. Fate has had. it
would appear, a spite against lfei\ Sheriffs, receivers and officials, semi and full
fledged, haverlaid hands upon her. Successfully slipping'through their fingers
one after another the Idaho was just
settling down to a good trade when
hard luck dealt her a knock-out blow.
About six o'clock yesterday morning
those on board the steamer were aroused
by a splintering crash, followed by the
sound of water rushing into the hold of
the. vessel. Springing from their bunks
they tried to get out of their staterooms,
but the wrenching of the vessel had so
jammed the doors that they refused to
open. When the doors were battered
in by the deck hands, the sight that met
the eyes of the bewildered passengers
was far from reassuring.
The bow of the steamer had crashed5
into the cliffs on the shore of the lake.
That they lived to learn this was due to.
a mere chance. When the vessel struck
her bow ran up on a narrow shelf which
held the hull fast. The stern was hanging over- 300 feet of water, and if the
Idaho had struck ten feet to either side
of the exact spot where she went on. in
all prp.bability.she would have rebounded
and settled immediately with all on
board. As it was the rocks held the
stem fast and everyone succeeded in.
making their escape.
Beyond a severe shaking up no one
was seriously injured, except Mrs. Oakes,
who had her shoulder badly bruised, and
it is thought may have a broken collar
bone.
The scene of the accident is a high
bluff of rocks about one half a'mile south
of Ainsworth. Capt. Shaw had charge
of the vessel, and was at the wheel when
she struck. Though the Idaho was provided with an electric search light, this
was only used on the river, and in making landings. The light was not in use
at the time the wreck occurred and the
captain was steering by the compass.
At the hour,. 0 in the morning, day
must have been just breaking. It is not
yet known just how it came about that
the pilot made his fa^al blunder.
The greater part of the cargo had
been landed at Kaslo. There was on
board at the time of tlie accident a carload of flour, and feed for Mr. Farley.
Some butler- for It. 10. Lemon, and fruit
for Coi'fman. if the hull hangs on to
the rock for a day or two the flour can
be recovered, as only a thin shell will be
damaged.

That this country [< not dead, or even

ore sacks at the present time. R. E.
Lemon, who is doing the greater- part of
this business at the present time, reports
that .the demand is still brisk, lie has
made such arrange i ue nJ.s with the Canada,

For-   myself I   have  one  geiu-ral heading under- which the. majority of people come, namely cranks.    For  ordinary   purposes a crank may   be  defined as a person whose views and opinions  materially  differ  from   your own.  Having by the application of this simple  .rule discovered that the world is  full of  cranks, and being of the aforesaid orderly turn of mind, it has   naturally followed that something like classification has  resulted.  *  Al  new Railway  under Construction.  \Bwy:':fe  Centre   and  Seat cf Government cf  PVesif Kootenay.

FRANK FLETCHER, LandCommissionerC. & K. Ry.0Co., Nelson, B.C.  Broadly speaking cranks may be divided into three classes (he " HasBeens"  the "I Ams" and the " Sure to Bes." Of  course if one approaches the subject in a  purely scientific spirit many subdivisions  will be discovered, and branching out  into species and variety enough to stock  a florists hand-book It is sufficient however, for- a general paper like this, where  scientific accuracy is not vital to consider  the three divisions noted above.  solid ore of inconceivable richness, and  only need a lift to open.it up.

He is generally somewhat along in years,  and to his more or less shabby clothing  there  clings a  musty   smell   which  reminds one of an old coffin.

GOING FURTHER _TOETH  The world is going to wreck morally  and physically. If some man has achieved a recent success, he remembers him  -T/hen he was poor, and not vary honest.  No new mining country is quite equal to  those he tramped around in when a  young man. He knows a much better-  way to run any certain business than  the man who runs it. He describes with  infinite relish how-he once managed just  such a venture. He may not be very  flush with ready cash but good advice  is always ou' tap, backed by an example  from his own life. His days were all  "better- days," better than his own are  now and better than anyone else can  hope to be blessed with'.' Poor old, " Has  Been." Hasten the day when he will  join the great majority of other "Has  Beens" on the other side.  Fewer bj7- far in numbers but vastly  more important, in their own estimation,  are the "I Ams." The almighty I Am  is usually a man who started out in life  with nothing but his gall and a very  limited cargo of conscience. With a  light draught he has steered through  the troubled waters of life and made the  haven of success when many a nobler  craft has gone down on the. ragged reefs  of adversity. Now swinging lazily at  anchor, he deems his scow a clipper-.  What be has accomplished is a theme of  which he never- tires.  Scxl SjtraitK Prospectors Will try the B'cacc  y Jltivcr Country.  According to the Spokane Chronicle,  a new era in northwestern exploration  will begin next spring. So say the prospectors who are returning from the  Lardo, the Slocan aud the St. Mary's  districts. Next year-, they say, the army  of prospectors will cross the Canadian  Pacific, aud begin exploring the great  country which lies beyond it, from the  Canoe river and the head waters of the  Fraser, as far- north as the great Peace  river-, which lies almost on the Sitka  parallel.  Those who are planning to seek Peace  river gold, are, as a rule, organizing litt'e  parties of three to six men, and planning to take a big stock of condensed  provisions and ammunition. Their purpose is to set out for the river1 as early  as possible next spring, prospect until  snow falls and go into camp for the winter, returning to the United Stales in  the fall of 1895.

This would greatly  facilitate the getting down of winter-  shipments from Revelstoke. Only a  portion of the winter stocks have been  received, and unless the water, now  reported to be five feet lower1 than at  this time last year, comes up some of  the goods will have to go around.  In conversation with an employee of  the Hudson Bay company a few days  ago it was learned that this company  have about five carloads yet to come in  addition to several already received.  The shipment includes a carload of assorted delicacies in the fish trade such as  Oolacnans and Salmon . bellies from  their northern posts.  The butter famine is now at an end,  this company having received a large  shipment of excellent dairy and creamery butter a few days ago.

Rather more entertaining and generally less harmful, this  class have a "scheme" constantly on  hand. Continually dabbling into things  they little understand. Capital is all  they require. Under the magic touch of  their fertile genius the most commonplace ventures teem with millions. They  are always  discovering wide  ledges  of  Transvaal <;<>!<! Fields.  The gold fields of tha Transvaal Republic in South Africa yielded over VSG,-  0(J0 ounces in August, which is the largest  product yet recorded in any one month.  In round figures a year's product at the  same rate would he worth $32,500,000  which is about equal to the annual production of gold in either the. United  States or Australia. If the Transvaal  mines produce .$30,000,000 in 1893, there  will he nearly $40,000,000 worth of gold  mined in 1894 in all probability. It is  impossible to tell where the top limit  will be reached, but it is probably not  many years off.  NOTICE  Notice of Application for Certificate of Improvements.

Now that smiling Summer has packed  her.trunk and depai ted for a visit to the  -.,;. California fairyokl man Winter wil lsoon  be trying his hand at grinding out some  weather for this region. A gruff and  rather illlempered old chap, but few  ������������������favors can be expected of him when he  gets down to steady .work.  Tjast  winter  this part of the country  practically  shut up  shop,   and   did   the  ������������������"ground hog" act.    Supplies were hard  to -get at and travelling almost  out 'of  '.-;.- the question. .Our  rapid progress  cannot be better measured than  by a com-  parisbn between this year's outlook and  that of the same time last year.  ���������    To tlie north the unusually low water,  will   cause travel to cease at about  the  same time as last year-, though it is bare-'  ���������������������������������������������' ly possible   that   fne R. <ScA. II. 11. will  reach  a point sufficiently far   south  to  prolong the season to some  extent.    In  the intei-inountain district however, the  prospects for winter communication are  '   better by far than ever before.  The road from Kaslo to Nakusp will  not be difficult to keep open as it will  be converted into a sleigh road as soon  a.s sufficient snow falls. From Nakusp  to Robson and thence to Nelson should  be a comparatively-easy route all winter.  On the other side the C. & K. will  make every effort to keep clear water  between here and Kaslo. This with the  ._ Nelson and Fort Sheppard .road to, the  FROM THE SLOCAN.  Reports on the ore production of the  Slocan continue to be of a very encouraging nature.- Several miffing men who  have been looking over some properties  in that point, of the country, say that  the record for the next two or three  months will show better than ever before. A number of the mines not at  present shipping, are piling up ore awaiting the cheaper and more convenient  winter transportation.  All the regular- shipping properties  will continue to be worked, and in some  cases a number of men have been added  to the previous force. Investors have  been going about lately picking up some  of the many bargains in undeveloped  properties, on several of the more extensively worked claims have changed  hands at good figures.  The only drawback, lack of transportation, is being removed, and with the^  opening of spring an era of prosperity  should dawn on what is the banner min-  ing region of Canada.

Among those who have spent some  time in this region during the summer-  probably no one left the country more  favorably impressed with its prospects  than Gr. R. Ennis. This gentleman, a  well known Philadelphia mining man,  has been looking over the mines in various parts of the Kootenays for some  months past. The result has been to  make him an enthusiastic convert to the  belief that we have here one of the greatest mining countries on earth.  Mr. Ennis will leave in a few days for  his home in Philadelphia where he is  confident of being able to secure capital  to take up some good investments which  have attracted his attention. While he  believes that there are splendid opportunities for speculative purchases in this  region this winter, his idea is to buy  solely for the purpose of working the  properties, as he claims that more can  be made in that way than any other.

The wild waste land lying west of the  snake-like Arrow lakes in British Columbia is rarely disturbed by prospectors,  hunters or" explorers. Two men, Rufus  Joues and - Charles Wilson, 'returned.  Sunday evening from a prospecting tour  along the western shore of the lake's*,  hrimging back specimens of rich galena  and gold bearing ore. They are satisfied  that ' a new district of great mineral  wealth has been discovered. . '  " It is a hard country to explore," said  Mr. Jones. "Besides the rough steep  mountains, the fallen trees and the dense  undergrowth there is a great deal of  swampy land that is almost impassable.  Even the plague of mosquitos has been  so severe as to drive spine prospectors  back from that country. There are no  roads or trails and no sign that anyone  .has been there since the trappers of the  Hudson Bay company moved north  thirty or forty years ago. I do not wonder that prospectors have never invaded  that district.  " We went as far north as-Upper" Arrow, lake, keeping within six to ten miles  of the shore most of the way. The whole  country is full of mineral. The ledges  are large and well denned, bearing steel  galena, ruby silver and some gold. I am  satisfied that much of tht galena is as  high/grade as the Slocan ores, and there  is every indication that it: will be a good  gold country.  " If deeper work gives as good results  as the surface showings promise, I believe this new Arrow lake country will  be a greater mining district' than the  Slocan. The galena appears to be as  rich even on the surface, and the ledges  are certainly, as large as those of the  Slocan. Besides this there is the promise of gold in paying quantities.  " Yes, we will return as early as possible next year and test some of our new-  discoveries by development. The seasons are. so short, there is no time to be  wasted. The ledges are hardly accessible before July, and there was heavy  snow on the ground when we started  south two weeks ago."  Just as Mr. Jones finished his description a messenger arrived from the assay  office bringing returns which he said  were from specimens of ore discovered  in the new country. The first assay  gave 193.6 ounces of silver and $10.54- in  gold. The. second showed 529.6 ounces  of silver and $12.-10 in gold. Mr. Jones  stated that the first ledge showed nine  feet, the second sixteen feet of mineralized surface width.���������Spokane Chronicle.  nual gold output of the United States.

But, as stated, it is not on  gold alone that the miners of California  depend.

The following extract is from a circular letter addressed by the Fair Committee of the State Miners Association to  the mining men of California. It is certainly a wonderful record :  " The value of the total mineral products of California is about. $20,000,000  per annum.

It is nol'.-.i. past record alone on which  this indusl i-y bases deserved recognition,  for though 'California has always since  the discovery, fai- distanced annually all  the other- States in gold yield, it to-day  turns out over- $7,000,0(X) a year- more  than any other State, notwithstanding  the decreased vield owing to the mistaken policy of closing down the hy  draulic-  mines,   which    produced  Slocan mining men are registering-a  kick against the railroad contractors.
