So Far as Can Now he Seen (he 4*rcat "Northern Will, Take the Matter in Mnnd an<l  do Some Cons's-ac'ion this Year. Tenders  are Efcuij; Called for.  Some person avho evidently had the  town of Kaslo in liis prophetic vision,  originated the saying "its a long lane  that has no turn ing, "and this idea might  be applied with equal force to railroads  and.their affairs. For many moons the  Kaslo-Slocan railroad ways, like those  of Providence, have been past finding  out, but now things have taken a decided,  turn for the better.  ���������.. That last scramble through the hills  by a pleasant little tea-party composed  of J_. S. officials, a Great Northern sur.  veyor, and two gentlemen who occasionally do contracting,- evidently was not  in vain. The ground was carefully  looked over, and when the officials left  for St. Paul with faces expressive of  much reserve force and wisdom, the citizens of Kaslo held their combined and  corporate breath and wailed.  . Just as they had ahnost given up all  hopes, and were beginning to scan the  papers in search of railway accident  lists of killed and fatally injured, along  came a message that changed the spirit  of their dream. Two surveying parties  parties were put on the field of action  juid things began to change for the  better. ������  Now tenders are being asked for to  cover the grading of a considerable portion of the road. It is understood that  the company will try toilet all the', contracts in mile sections,' in order- to facilitate, .construction, as it is their desire to  rush things ahead with all possible.  speed. While it has not yet been made  public, there can be no doubt, but that  the Great Northern is back of, and the  moving factor in this tardy activity.  The  objective  point of'"this   season's  work is somewhere near   the   mouth  of  Sandon  creek,   which  empties  into  the  south fork of Carpenter creek at a. point j  some four miles from  the  Three  Forks.-'  This would give a roadbed 27 or- 2S miles ;  in length,   and   when   completed   would  tap a considerable number  of the lead- \  ing properties in t he Slocan.    The Payne j  mountain   mines,   and   all   the    claims !  around to the Lucky Jim, will  find   this ;  road especially available. j  With the Nakusp & Slocan in to al- j  most the same point, about the only!  drawback to (his country will be removed. Lack of transportation' facilities, available at all seasons and at  reasonsable rates, has kept back a section, which even while laboring under  these disadvantages,   has   made a  won-  itself during the. past;  derful'record for  few months  Mining men who have lately come in  from the Slocan say that it. is'difficult to  estimate just what the winter output-  will be, us-many of tlie. mines are simply piling the ore up on the. dumps.  This is done to await the cheaper winter- transportation. With the completion of railroads not only will all of this  ore be shipped out, but a considerable  quantity of second grade ore that will  not stand the present rates will be shipped. With competing lines of railroads  to force the output to its highest capacity, the mines of the Slocan should  send out several hundred tons of ore  daily.  from Colville, local bids having been  considered too high. The exact amount  of the shipment has not yet been determined, but it will be something over1 100  tons.  The tramline which will be-Ii- miles  in length, according to the present,surveys, has been located and the preliminary surveys sent off. The construction  work on the tram lino will begin at the  earliest possible period in the spring.  GARTER HARRISON KILLED  10 IE FOR WHITE IETAL  AT LEAST SO SAY THE SENATORIAL  SOLONS.  THE FAMOUS   MAYOR  OF CHICAGO  STRICKEN DOWN.  Iu Revenue for Sonic Fancied Slight Harrison Was Called to His I>oor and Fatally  Shot. The Murderer Immediately Surrendered to the Police.  - Chicago, 111., Oct. .28.���������Another, crazy  crank has done his. deadly.work and  Carter H. Harrison.^Bve times 'mayor of  Chicago, and'one of the best known men  in the west, lies dead at his home, 231  South Ashland boulevard. Three bullets  entered his body, two, making wounds  sufficient to cause death.  The murder was committed by Eugene  Patrick Prendergast, a paper1 carrier,  who declared that Mayor Harrison had  promised to make him corporation counsel and had not kept his word. This, he  said, was his only reason for committing  the crime.  The only person in the house at the  time of the shooting beside Mr. Harrison was his son, William Preston Harri-  aged 25, and the servants.  Mr. Harrison lived but twenty minutes after the shooting. The murderer  went immediately to a police station  and delivered himself up, saying :  "I shot Mayor 'Harrison'and that is  what. I shot him with. He-said he would  make me corporation counsel aud he did  not.    That is what I shot him for1."  The murder was soon known in all  parts of the city and the greatest excitement and������'sorrow prevailed. Feeling  against the murderer- was intense, and  for a time lynching was frequently suggested. Mr. Harrison had received  threatening letters from hiin, but gave  them little thought, as the man wascon-  sidered a crank. He is now in the  county jail.  The mayor's last words were :    " Give  me   water���������send    for   Anna���������give    me  water."    Miss Anna Howard of New Or- j  leans, the  fiancee of  Mr. Harrison, was!  in the  house at  th'* time the fatal  shot j  was  fiied and  was with him  when   he  died.  The coroner's inquest was held yesterday and the verdict recommended that  Prendergast be held for murder until  discharged by due process of law.  Telegrams and letters of sympathy  are being constantly received from all  parts of the country.

Presents a More Cheerful Outlook for Claim  Owners   Than   Before.  , Newsfr-oin the Toad Mountain district  continues to, be of,a very encouraging  nature. In the majority of instances  those holding claims on the -mountain  have completed their assessment work,  and in some cases some extra development work has been done in addition.  The results of this work have been very  satisfactory in most cases, and the coming season should see the greatest activity ever witnessed in this vicinity.  Most of those holding claims in the  Toad mountain district assert that now  that the Hall mines company have taken  hold of their' work in earnest, it will be  far less difficult to secure development,  capital for other properties near the big  mine.  Some forty or fifty men are  busy in  and around the Silver King.    The trial ',  shipment is nearly ready, and  will go,  out in a few days.  It is understood that the teams to transport this first   shipment will  come in  TSie Photo-TopoKraphirnl Survey Party Finishing for the Season.  Mr. Drury, in charge of the government photo-topographical survey in this  section, came in from Balfour this week,  having finished his labor's for1 the season  in that vicinity. The party moved down  to Groman creek where they have a few  more hard scrambles to make in order1  to secure some necessary levels, Mr-.  Drury expects to close up the season's  work in a few weeks.  The result of this year's proceedings  has. been to get the works in such shape  that far more rapid progress can be  made next year, as.the circle taken by  the observations is of course continually  increasing in size. When completed  this will be one of the most .important  works ever1 undertaken by the government in this region. The maps drawn  by this plan, show not only the general  contour of the country, but give the  exact elevation of any point, and the relation which it bears to the surrounding  points. -.-.,.���������  The   science   of    photo-topographical  surveying  is  especially  adapted to the  needs  of a new and rough country like:  this, and the government by taking the  matter up is deserving of commendation. \  The charts will materially assist in   the ���������  laying out of trails, and the determining i ���������  of the exact position of all the mineral : t  claims for which a crown grant has been  issued.  Washington, Oct; 30.���������At. 7:20 tonight, by a vote of 43,to 32, the . senate,  after one of the most remarkable parliamentary battles of this generation,  passed the bill unconditionally repealing the purchase clause of the Sherman  silver law. The end was reached at the  conclusion of a continuous session of 1_  days, after 61 days of debate, during  which five volumes of the Congressional  Record have been filled with speeches,  amounting in the aggregate to about  20,000,000 words.  The last day attracted a great crowd  of sightseers to the galleries, and many  members of the house and diplomatic  corps were present.  The roll call showed the presence of 52  members when the consideration of the  repeal    bill    was    resumed.       Senator  Hun ton of Virginia said that he would  vote for  unconditional repeal and  would  be ready to join his friends  fight for1 silver. . ���������     ,.- , i  After Senator1 Cameron had announced  himself for free coinage of American silver1, Senator  ate. He said that the  bill would be an irrevocable surrender  to the demands of the most insolent  overbearing corporations.  Senator Morgan then read slowly these  sentences from Senator Gorman's speech  of Saturday: "We are compelled to  take the terms offered by theosenator  from Ohio. He has the ke}r to the situation. You have dictated terms to tisi"  " I thank Almighty God," said Senator  Morgan i mpressively, "that the senator-  from Ohio has never had the "power1 to  dictate term's to me as a democrat. He  may have dictated them to the president ; to the committee; to the minority  of democrats ��������� on this side, but he can  not dictate to me." -.: .-,.  Senator Morgan concluded his remarks  about 2:4.0 and Senator Vest followed,  saying no czar or kaiser would desolate  an insurrectionary province as congress  was about to desolate the silver stales of  the west.  Senator Cockrell said the republican  party would be infinitely more responsible than the democratic party if repeal  of the Sherman law failed to restore  prosperity. l  After- a lengthy war of words between  the various senators and a few ineffectual attempts to stay the tide, Senator  Jones of Nevada resumed his speech begun several days ago. He said demonetization was but one part of a scheme  of the banks of great money centers who  also wanted a monopoly of the issue of  money. They will now demand an issire  of $200,000,000 in bonds, believing the  distress of the country will become so  great as a result of the contraction that  the government will be unable to resist.'  In his opinion instead of issuing bonds  to relieve the currency famine the government should issue greenbacks.  Hi coucl'*.sion Senator Jones said this  was not the doom of silver-, as some imagine ; it is only the beginning of the  fight. Senator's"Peffer and Harris spoke  briefly against the bill and Senator1  Stewart closed the long debate with a  few remarks in a similar- vein.  At 7-20 the vice president put the question on the engrossment of amendments  and the third reading of the bill, which  was agreed to without division. A vote  was then taken on the passage of the  bill as amended. The vote resulted : 43  ayes, 32 noes, so the bill as amended  passed.

Running the risk of both the Miner  ventures to repeat a statement made  some time, ago to the effect that.in the  mining regions of west Kootenay can be  found the safest and-most remunerative  investments offered anywhere in the  world to-day. No thinking man can  .possibly read the record of this section  for the past three nionths'w'.thout being  favor-ably impressed.  Few   indeed  are   the  mining   regions  '   that  can   give   so  good  an   account  of  themselves,   or   in    which   investments  have  met with'-such prompt and direct  returns.    In no instance where any con-  '   siderable amount of  development work-.  ' has   been  done has there resulted, those'  complete   failures  so frequent and. dis-  'discouraging on   the  other side   of  the  line.  It is safe to say that in no section of  equal age and development can be found  as high a per cent of successful ventures?  as can be shown by the mining properties in this region during the past twelve  months. No claims have so uniformly  proven good, and shown such a disposition to pay from the "grass roots" as  those at our doors. Further than this  ' shrewd men of business  can see clearly  EPIDEMIC OF CRANKS.  Another epidemic of cranks, political,  financial and otherwise, appears to have  struck the United States. Carter II.  Harrison, five times mayor of the city  of Chicago is the last victim., Called to  his door1 by   a crazy paper  carrier1 and  shot.   .      ".'': ������������������-       .' '.     '.''".,.. .'���������.������������������!'-   -  Mayor Harrison was probably one of  ;the best known men in the United  States. A typical western''man in the  broadness of his mind, the liberality of  his views, and his genial and hearty  ways, no other man has done so much  for his city, or is deserving of the more  lasting and grateful lememberance of  his son-owing fellow citizens.      ,:  The motive can only be found in the  vagaries of a disordered -brain, carried  off its little remaining balance by the  whirl of political excitement, and aiming  as is usual in such case's-at ,the most  shining mark. ,  With regard' totthe murder there is  little to be said. The law has fastened  on the doer of the awful deed, and should  be allowed to take its course, The murderer, however, furnishes food for1  thought. In the United States it would  appear that affairs are rapidly approaching a condition when every prominent  man either in official.position or wealth  will be compelled to lead a czar-like life  of constant dread and unceasing protective precautions^  that here is anew problem for their solution. A great and growing problem,  Canadian silver and lead. An industry  that is fast becoming too important to  ignore, and one which has the right to  demand all the fostering care which the  government can give it.  leAM-iMK utorss-;*.

This record, combined with the fact  that many of the ordinary avenues for  investments are practically closed, can  have but one result, an influx of capital  into this section. While this is a matter  of certainty sooner or- later, signs are  not wanting to indicate that, this movement is not so far in the future as many  suppose.  A number of excellent properties have  been bonded lately to parties who are  willing and able to take them up in case  the claims turn out ua expected. The  demand for such properties is growing-  daily as the various older ventures prove  successful.  Probably at no time in the history of  this section could ready money command such bargains in the mining market, and the outside world is beginning  to realize this. Active in vestment has  practically just begun.  CONGRATULATIONS FOR   KASLO.  From the present, appearance of things  in railroad affairs it would look as if  Kaslo is to be congratulated on the fact  that at last the Kaslo-Slocan railroad  seems to have fallen into hands that  will push it  to immediate  constructing  This means a great deal to that town,  and it is to be hoped that time will not  develop any more hitches in the programme. Those who have stood by the  place when everything present and future looked blue should now reap the reward of their faith and their tenacity.  The Kaslo Examiner' voices the sentiment in. that section as follows :  " The immediate effect of the construction of the Kaslo-Slocan Railway will be  apt to disappoint a large number of  those who anticipate a return of the  boom times of last winter1 and spring,  but the indirect effect of its being built  will be wholesome and generally beneficial. The laborers employed may not  have the privilege of quitting work and  spending their wages to suit themselves,  for it  is  becoming quite a science  for  THE REPEAL BILL PASSED.  The purchase clause of the Sherman  silver law has been unconditionally repealed, after what is, in all probability^  the most-remarkable struggle, next to  the home rule fight, that the world has  witnessed in many years.  The friends of silver fought, hard, and  died hard. They left, no possible chance  for success untried, and when their flag  was hauled down, it was one of those  victories that make the conquerers hesitate to renew a similar struggle.  It now remains to be seen whether  the white metal is responsible for all the  financial evils that have been laid at its  door. Wall Street is reported to have  already felt the effect of the new order  of things. On the prospects of a compromise values took a rise, only to  slump again on the passage of the bill  for repeal.  The Spokane Review, in   commenting  on the repeal pertinently remarks: "The  Sherman law was in no wise responsible  for the panic of the past summer, and its  removal is not going to bring the  promised   results.    Prosperity    will    return.  The panic wore itself out several  weeks  ago, and for  two   months  or   more  the  country   has   been   on   the   in end.    But  this improvement is entirely aside  from  the Sherman law, and would have come  all the quicker if the president  had  riOj-  called    congress     together     in     extra  session.  Repeal is a settled fact; but the fight  for honest money is still on. The American people declared for the double  standard at the polls one year ago#  They can not always be trifled with this  way. When next they voice their will  they will see to it that men are chosen  who will execute their sovereign will."  Will they?

It* deals  \yiih ,the./surveys and  investigations made in 1891 by the Held  force of the Geological Depart inent,.-and  embraces territory from British Coluiii-  , bia to Nova Scotia^ giving a comprehen-  ��������� sive   survey  of  miningoperations and  projects in these lands, accompanied by  tables, which show a growing-prosperity  all round.   The principal coal measures  in Canada are at the  two  extremes of  the country  east -and   west,-, the great  middle stretch,'and particuiarly Ontario,  depending   tipon    Pennsylvania   for  its  .supply. The British Columbia coal meets  a ready  market on..the. ,coasl, little or  none  of it being sent across the   mountain, and similar conditions exist- on the  Atlantic    seaboard,  where    the    Nova  Scotia mines  supply the demand.    The  coal is bituminous or soft-coal the only  hard coal yet ruined iii (Jaiiada, being in  the foothills  of ���������:.-the-.Rockies.    In  1S91  Nova Scotia exported coal to the  value  of $17,S16, and British  Columbia to the  value of $2,95S,695.

There is keen competition in rhe coal  trade of the Pacific, and it may be long  before the British ('olunibiaii product  will command the market, but there can  be little doubt-that- when the immense  deposits of this region come to be fully  worked they will provide a cheap article  difficult to;'compete-with. While the  coast will be well supplied, the deposits  in the Sjiskatchewan country may be  looked to furnish the supplies for the  prairie ' country, . and with cheapened  ��������� transportation Ontario may yet share in  this volume of cheap fuel. The report  goes fully into the subject, and furnishes  figures to sustain the proposition advanced. !  The report deals with the production  of asbestos, copper, graphite, gypsum,  iron, lead, nickel, natural gas and--petroleum, besides many other products of  less importance. The chapter on metal  is the most interesting in the report.  During the year Canada produced more  nickel than New Caledonia, Norway,  United States and Sweden combined,  and now the Canadian deposits rank as  (he richest in the. world and are destined  to play an important part in manufactures in this country and the States. An  interesting portion of the report is that  in which Mr.'Tyrrell expresses the opinion that the Bur-onion formation on the  east side of Lake Winnipeg; may contain  nickel, and suggests investigation of the  subject by 'experts',  ' Turning to the chapter's on petroleum,  Di.' Selwyn's observations on the oil-  bearing rocks and earths of the Rocky  Mountain regions and the Northwest  are found, and will prove most-entertaining.' Dr. Selwyn made a thorough  examination of the district, being astonished at the extent of the deposits.  There can belittle doubt that within a  very few years these lands will be worked and the product sent forward to market. They are in somewhat out of the  way places, but their value will make  them accessible by providing the means  reaching them. ���������   ��������� ���������  In t he precious metals the report shows  a falling off in the value of the production for all Canada, but no account is  taken of the new gold fields in this Province, which are not included in the scope  of the report; This is only a brief sketch  Of what the'report contains, hut it will  give an idea of Canada's great wealth in  in minerals and the means which are being taken to profit by them.���������World.
