NELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   NOVEMBEE   19,   1892.  $4 A YEAE  KAIIiWAY-- IJJEVEfiOPMKMT... OF , WEST- ' KOOTEX-AY.  Rail way schemes in the fall lake the place of  mosquitoes in the sum mer, only they are more  numerous. A late number of the Colonist devotes about half a coinmn to the elaboration of  a scheme which^certainly does not lack the  merit of completeness. To. outline it briefly, it  .lecommends that the O. P. R. should build a  line from the Crow's Nest pass into East Kootenay, a-nd thence through by w&y of St.,. Mary's  River to Cravvford's Bav, thence to Pilot; Bav.  and th&n by steam ferry to Balfour, and from  Balfour west to Nelson and north to 'Lardeauat.  The originator of this scheme talks as if it were  already on foot, and as if the C. P. R. had very  nearly fixed and settled upon ���������.:it,: on the very  slender basis of the fact that a surveying party  has been at work somewhere in^ the neighbor-  >;   hood of Crawford's Bay.    Of this scheme it may  J., be simply said as of so many others: "It is mag-  f "nificeot butMt is not policy." A railway company will not go into huge undertakings which  are of no use until the last tie is laid and the  whole completed. Its method is to extend bit  by bit, here a little aiid there a little, keeping in  3 view, ho doubt, an ultimately extensive and  coherent scheme, but progressing slowly like a  prudent general from a secured basis of supplies, and only making fresh advances as circumstances require., ��������� .'",;  Until this railway was completed to Nelson it  would have no intelligible connection with anywhere, neither with Slocan nor with   the   main  line of the C. P. R! except in  Alberia.    And to  complete   the   connect ion, a  steam  ferry   built  and   maintained  at .enormous   cost  would   be  necessary, and 20 miles of a railroad built where  there is good water communication all the year  round,    it   may  be taken  for  gran ted   that  a  railway will uot be ,,bmit to compete with water-  traffic until things have   been   rubbed  down so  fine that the cost of transfer from boat to  train  and vice versa, cuts some figure on   the   hulk of  the trade, and it will certainly be  years "before  this   country  reaches  so  line  a  point as  that.  The immediate object of such a road could only  be to bring coke to the Pilot   Bay  smelter  and  tap the St. Mary's mining section,   to the ignoring of Slocan, Groat River, Toad   Mountain  and  the Lardeaux.    It seems to us that the  auihor  of this scheme has in some inscrutable  way got  the cart befoi e the horse. It would surely be more  economical for the C. P, R. to build into West  Kootenay   by  means of  the Moyie  River and  Groat River,   and  then   either  come  down  the  south shore of the lake or make connection with  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard.    In  this way the  ��������� b. P. R.   would   tap  the  Goat  River  country,  would   bring itself  within all  the year  round  water*   communication    with  Slocan   and Lardeaux; and when   the   Pilot   Bay  and Duncan  River warranted it, it would be just as  easy to  build  a  steam   ferry across   to them as  across  from them. And in this way the C. P. R. would  make connection with Spokane and  with their  presumable extensions to tap Slocan Lake.   We  think the scheme suggested  in   the  Colonist is  impracticable and we have no hesitation in saying  so, but   it is a- valuable contribution to the  intelligent discussion  of   the  railway  problem,  because it recognizes the fact that is  staring all  well wishers of Kootenay in   the  face,   namely  that we must have a local centre, we must have  a local railway system,   we  must have a  local  market,   we   must   have   a   local   distributing  point or else this country can  never grow to its  full stature.    If the  Boards  of  Trade  of  Vancouver, Victoria and New  Westminster would  address themselves to this fact and the problem  which  it  raises, instead of allowing themselves  to be swayed about by every  wind of doctrine  puffed in their faces by real  estate fakirs there  would be a little more hope of their discussions  and resolutions being of some  benefit to  this  country.    If President Van Home would deign  to expend some of his brain tissue in finding  whether those "musts' were imperative or not,  we should begin to hope; but when we are face  to face with the stuffed puppet of official  red tapeism, pulled hither and thither by the  private interests of the men in power, what is  left for us but despair. Logic, reason and the  public good have no power over a puppet and  very little over the strings that control its  movements.  .     COKBIN   MEANS   -BllSISffiSS;  Contracts have been let for rock work between -Northport.arid, the boundry line. There  are several bad points between the present terminus of the road tothePend d'OreilleRiver,and  they have to be got out of the way  at once so  that the track may be laid as far as the river,  and the foundations of t he bridge built before  the water rises. Mr. Roberts, chief engineer," is  at present engaged in locating the railway  bridge across the mouth of the stream. It is  expected that a con tract will be let for the  grading on the whole road within two or three  rnonths, and constraction will be commenced  just as soon as it can be carried on continuously  without obstruction from snow.  ���������JTBIE' vMOIiME--' G1SSSON.  4  This mine must be an all bonanza location, if  the following, from   the Tombstone Prospector  can be  credited.    It says:    Moilie Gibson is  per cent, richer than the silver  dollar.    It is 94  per cent, pure. Single specimens, weighing 300  pounds, worth $6,000, are frequently taken out  of the mine. The ore is so rich that the smelters ctS-not want to handle it, as it is almost impossible to keep the hands from stealing it.  Last month the company shipped but two cars  of ore, the of which netted $85,000, the .other  $70,000. The mine pays $150,000 a month, and  it is said that if they were not afraid to break  the silver market, they could as easily ship  $1,500,000. There are walls of solid silver, and  it is the richest* mine yet discovered.  A    K13W   AMAlLftAMATOK.  An I lab.) man has invented a new machine with which gold is extracted from the sand.  Bight cubic yards of sand yielded over $20, and  a-thorough search oc the tailings did not show  a color.    The quicksilver  process also  failed to  show any gold in the tailings. The principle of  the machine consists in forcing thegold-carrying  sand over a silver plate and through 3 separate  mercury baths which amalgamates all the gold.  The main feature of the process lies in the mercury baths, which, being charged with some secret compound, enables it to amalgamate any  thing, even greasy iron, as shown by several  trials. Patents for the process have been obtained, anel a, stock company to handle the same  will be organized in Portland soon. Outside of  labor the machine can be operated for 10 cents a  day, and as almost any gravel bar will pay from  $4 to $20 per day to the man, when the gold is  saved, tlie magnitude of the invention is at  once apparent.to anyone acquainted with placer  mining.  MOBfcAN   TAIiKS.  J. H. Moran is at the Hotel  Rainier, Seattle,  having taken down with him a number of rich  specimens  of  silver-Iaad  ore  from   the  Slocan  country.    Last June he went up to that country  a veritable tenderfoot, never having seen a mine,  on a prospecting   tour.    The  second  day after  his party had located a camp, and gone hunting  for signs of ore,   he  lost  his  companions,   and  being somewhat fearful of bears, of which there  are plenty in that region, he thought it best not  to go further from camp, and sat down to wait  for his partners to  return.    While waiting for  them he picked up a small boulder in mere idleness.    He was struck with its weight and broke  if intwo, when he saw that it was nearly pure  galena.    He picked up others, and  a short  distance up the hill he found the ledge from which  the float had. come.    Aud. th lis he became rich.  His ore averages $130 per  ton; "it cost, during  the summer to ship it, about $100 a ton, during  the   winter,    however,    this   expense    will   be  greatly lessened," said he,   to a reporter of the  Post  Intelligencer-,   "by  dispensing   with , the  pack animals and hauling the  ore  to  the  boat  on   Arrow  Lake  by  sleds.    About a score  of.  claims will be worked all winter.    I  have come  down for the purpose  of laying  in  a  winter's  stock of supplies,   and  shall return  again in a  few days.    I am not sorry  that the Democrats  have carried the election  this  year,   because if  they take off the duty on lead ores it will make  our ore���������wor-thr,.ahout $30 a ton  more to us, and  will give a greater impetus to American mining  in British Columbia."  -'.MffNING   NOTES.  Mr. Rockefeller, of the Standard Oil Trust,  has bonded the Great Northern in the Lardeaux  for $75,000. Mr. Rockefeller went to look at  this property in a skeptical frame of mind, but  came, saw, and was conquered.  The Silver King deal is not yet an accomplished fact. Arrangements have been made for the  winter at the mine, and supplies have been  ordered for the few men who will be at work  there. Definite news of the success of the deal  rnay be expected sometime before Christmas.  The Gem mine,'Wallace,' Idaho, has been sold  for $1,000,000. This means the investment of  much money in Kootenay by A. M. Esler.  Among other things it guarantees a .mill on t he  Dandy in the spring. And we guarantee that  miners in this country will be too glad to see a  mill to have any thoughts of blowing it up.  Mr. Chadbourne has just returned from Kaslo,  which he reports to be booming. He thinks  that they make a great-mistake" who despise the  day of small things in New Denver. It. is bound,  he thinks, to become the supply point for the  Freddie Lee, the Great Western, and a number  of the other claims in that district. If a railroad were built up the Slocan river it would be  'likely to become the shipping point also for a  number of mines.  The Nakusp trail is reported impracticable.  Engineer Sweet, who has just come down from  New Denver, where he was superintending the  placing of t.he engines of the William -Hunter,  says that in his opinion it is questionable  whether the trail can be con verted into a sleigh-  road. It is so soft and so well protected in parts  that he doubts if there will be sufficient frost  to harden it up for sleighs.  We have received the card of the Kootenay  Prospecting and Supply Company of Minneapolis. "The general nature of the business of  the said corporation is to prospect for, locate,  develop, bond, buy, lease, own, operate and sell  mines and minerals in British Columbia (especially in the Kootenay District,) and to buy, own,  sell and exchange provisions, and miners' supplies, and to furnish to miners and others in the  said territory, "grubstakes" for an interest- in  the mines to be discovered or developed by the  said persons."  Dr. Hendryx was in town on Friday, and is  as full of enthusiasm and confidence about-  West Kootenay as ever. He thinks the Lardeaux is going to be the equal if not the rival of  the Slocan. The grade of the Lardeaux ore is  good, and there are unquestionably bigger  bodles of ore present than in Slocan. "I had  some assays from the Lardeaux country (float  ore) in '85 and '80 that beat the world,' said the  doctor, "and I have spent $700 looking for the  ledge. I have never found it and probably never  will. H4������wSC������i!nW9kA  rV*-5  tf*h  ... .^Jtf  M  '&���������������"  m  \m  THE  MINES:  NELSON,   B.   0.,   SATUEDAY,   NOVEMBEE 19,   1892.

Mr. Wm. Mcintosh is working on  the Union  under  royalty,   and  crystals of high grade amber mica  In the Rievres district probably 75 to 100 men  are engaged in mining and prospecting for  mica. The biggest shows found this season are  on the Little Rapids property.  The continued depression in the European  market is evidenced by the very limited extent  of the phosphate mining operations in this district. The High Rock mme, wiih a reduced  force of about 60 men, has raised -about 3,000  tans of all grades to dcite, about 2,000 tons of  which has been exported. The Squaw Hilland  ./Etna mines of the British American Phosphate Company are the only other-mines being  worked to any respectable extent. Recent  mining has revealed some fine shows of the  mineral, and the..management is reported to  be encouraged by the prospects of productive  mining. Mr. J. B. Smith is contemplating the  introduction of a plant of greater .capacity.  The sworn returns in the Mines Office show  that the first crushing from the property lately  acquired in Oldam, N. S., by the million-dollar  syndicate, from Attleboro and Providence, gave  14 ozs. 9 dwts., from 30 tons, of quartz, an average of $9.4:0 per ton.|  Mr. E. B. Haycock, Ottawa, is making a practical effort to demonstrate, the value of the alluvial gold areas known to exist over a large  area on the Chaudiere and elsewhere in that  region.    Last year he acquired what  is  known  as the Star gold  tending over  mines,  containing an area ex-  _ 1,500 acres on   both  sides  of the  River du Loup.    Mining is  being  carried on by  a force of some 16 men at a point about  a mile  distant by road from the settlement   of Jersey  Mills.     Mr.   Haycock   states    that   from    the  quantity of gold already obtained and   the indications of its  existence  on   the property, he is  satisfied that his  venture  will  be  a  profitable  one.    An engine and boiler has  been   put in by  Messrs.   Carriere, Lane  &  Co., of  Levis, and a  small portable three-stamp mill is  on   the  way  from the establishment of Fraser  &  Chalmers,  Chicago,   for  preliminary  working.    Over two  two miles of steel  piping has   been  laid, and a  drainage dam 250 feet long, 8 feet  high, with a  face of 24, feet has been built.    Buildings to accommodate   a good   working  force  have been  erected.      Either   a   Huntingdon    mill   or   an  ordinary  ten-stamp  mill  will   be   put in in the  spring.    On   the  same  property  Mr.   Haycock  has found some  promising veins  of  free-milling ore.  The well known heavy gun manufacturers,  Krupp, of Essen, have sent an agent to inspect  the iron miues along tho coast  of Labrador, to  ascertain if the firm can draw from them the  metal required by the Krupp manufactory,  which consumes some 500,000 tons a- year. This  firm now obtain their, iron from Spain, aud it is  in the expectation of securing a better quality  of iron at a less cost that they are looking after  new mines.  Captain M. McLeod, manager of the.Enterprise mining camp, on Cayoose Creek, Lillooet,  is quite bouyant over the prospects of that company, which is a purely local one. A few mistakes had been tnMde in starting the miue, but  these, he is confident, are now overcome, and  pay dirt may be looked for shortly and that in  Jarge quantities. The company has abundance  of water for hydraulic purposes, and this element, now so necessary in working quartz and  placer mines, will be used to a large extent.  Then the mine will yield handsome profits,- as  {here is sufficient in sight to keep it in operation  for many years."   The captain  has   taken   down  to the Coast with him some nuggets  and gold dlist, from   the   mine, al 1  cellent quality.  leaf  gold  being of ex-  THE    BKMi   ������MJESTJ[ON.  There  is   a   very   strong   feeling   iu   Nelson  against the strychnine fiend,   and  for  a hong  time the town has been   free  from   the ravages  which generally result in  t he destruction of all  the good dogs in town, and the escape of all the  worthless^ qnes.    But the dog nuisance has been  growing  and   growing,   until  something  must  positively be done to put a stop to it.    It is impossible to  walk  along Baker  street   without  running foul of ten or a dozen sivvash mongrels,  which make night and day  hideous  with  their  orgies.    At  the   west end of Baker street there  is a bull dog pup which thinks nothing of singing for 30 hours at a stretch.    At  the  east end  there arc a number of  little dogs which  carry  on their  affairs   with ' more noise  and   talking  than   an   Irish   oyster  woman,   while,   in the  centre, there is a group of  dogs  which  indulge  in more profanity with their- tongues than they  can back with their teeth.    Night and day, this  barking, yelping, howling, chattering orgy goes  on without let or- hindrance.    Where is it going  to stop ? Among dogs there is an infinite capacity  of self multiplication.   They are richly endowed  with the reproductive tendency, which scientists  say is the end and fulfilment of all organic life,  but the type of dog  thus   produced,   instead of  developing, deteriorates in every quality except  strength of lungs; and every pup that is born to  Nelson dogs inherits nothing save a congenital  tendency to howling, which is fostered   by education and environment, and becomes  insufferable about the time when   he, or she, begins to  realize  the end  of  his  or  her existence,    Are  Nelson people  to  be driven  mad  by dogs? Is  sleep to be denied them, is the present prosperous town to  be  reduced  to a howling   wilderness? A committee of citizens, armed with shot  guns, should issue a proclamation that on a certain day every good dog, or dog his owner  thinks good, is to be kept out of the way, and  then go round the streets and clean up the stray  dogs at sight. This would be a more, straightforward way of abating the nuisance than promiscuous strychnine, and something must be  done and done quickly.  c-BgTC'tta-cEEaa  wmws&v&*aa3xaBJ^^x*Em������TsrniaG3SinunaaMK������*9*e7r&  <r*i  ���������%���������\  5  A3  n  c^sa-r^iLf. <mTw^^.  . *AW-^������  -DEALERS  IN-  v  .<^""5y cssa PES^ q r.-."G3 aO&z.

Nelson  it calls grabtown, and The Miner a liar and a  few other choice names.    We  believe  that the  editor of the Star  is  under the hallucination  that a secret jealousy of Revelstoke. knaws like  a canker worm at the heart of Nelson's citizens.  Just imagine any town being jealous of Revel-  stoke's position and natural advantages. No !  They are her own, and we know and can conceive of no place so miserable as to covet them.  Did the editor of the Star ever hear of the  Revelstoke citizen who died after a career that  entitled him to a very warm berth. When he  arrived he found that there was plenty of  society round, and if it was a little warm���������well,  he had just come from Revelstoke. -"Why," he  exclaimed in surprise, "I suppose this is heaven;  at any rate it's a very pleasant change from  Revelstoke." ���������  ���������    THE   CBt������W*S   NEST   PASS.  The C. P. R. have not. as seems to have been  generally   supposed,   abandoned  work  on this  line until next  spring.    Word  reaches   us that  there are two grading camps in the pass to the  west of Garnet's ranch, whilst several camps  are situated to the east of this point. A very  considerable force-of men is empioped and the  grade is being rapidly carried forward. This  looks like business.  KJBPT ' VEKY   DARK.  The steamer Nelson mysteriously  lost  one of  her passengers  on   her down trip last Monday  week.    His  name  was  Win. J. McCleary:    lie  was last seen near Bail's ranch. Not long after  it was discovered that he was missing. He had  a trunk on board, and his overcoat was found  in his stateroom.. He was registered for Kaslo..  It is supposed that he fell overboard and was  drowned.    BS. ���������. Mineral ExMbat.  Mr.   Charles  F.   Law,, representative  of  the  Mineral Department of the Province of British  Columbia,   being  convinced,  after his   visit to  Chicago, that greater preparations arid a larger  outlay are necessary to do justice to the resources of this province, waited upon   the Minister  of Finance on  November the 8th.    The .result  was that he obtained a  special  grant of $500,  which has been telegraphed to the credit of the  following committee; at Kaslo City: John Keen,  Rev-  D. M.   Martin,   G.   O.  Buchanan,   Robert  Green, and,Thomas Nbrquay, to enable them to  carry out the project to a successful   issue  and  secure as line"a collection of ore as possible.  T<t> ��������� SURVEY   TI9IBL   >   LIMITS.  Messrs. Ferrv. Gray; ,& Davis are not, as the  Kaslo Examiner seems to think, O. P. R. engineers, and they have not sent a survey party  to the head of Kootenay lake to locate a line  from that point to the  main .line.    It would be  unnecessary to do thisT as such  a line  was run  some years ago   by  Mr.   Poudrier.    Mr.   Perry,  accompanied by a survey  party,   has  gone up  the   Duncan   River   to  survey   timber   limits.  Something must have been wrong with the grub  that this party took with  them,   as   we  are informed,   on good authority, that an extra man  had  to-be   hired  in   Kaslo,  whose  duty   it  is  to be on hand some short time  before the hours  set for meals,   and  to   call  "pig,   pig,  pig,"  in  order to  collect  the scattered fragments of a  side of bacon.    We understand that Mr. Town-  send   has  undertaken  to  train  one particular  flitch to do all sorts of peculiar and   wonderful  things,  the  only drawback being, as he says,  that his pet side of bacon crawls out of the bag  at night, sits in front of the lire and keeps him  awake by its loud chirping.   The most difficult  trick   that Mr.   Townsend has  set  himself to  teach this bacon is known as the  "frying-pan  act," as it is very difficult  to restrain the mad  antics of the bacon when it feels the  hot steel.

When the Vancouver Board  of Trade,  after  much'..skilful scheming   on the part of a few  wire-pullers, finally brought itself to  the point  of saying, out loud, that it thought that  sorne  steps should  be  taken  to secure  the trade of  West Kootenay for the Coast  towns,  and  proposed, as a means to this end, that the Government should, offer  to  the  C. P. R. (for such is  the practical meaning of the resolution passed  by  the   Board)   every    inducement    to   build  .branches into   the  Slocan  country,    it surely  never expected to stir up the storm  of indigna^  jtjori and protest which has  resulted  upon  its  action, or it would forever have held its  peace.  Mr. Burns'letter, from which we quoted last  week, was not the only communication to the  Vancouver newspapers which dealt with this  matter. Some one, writing under the designation of" Watchdog," very aptly remarks:���������*'!  .have often wondered why the C. P. R. did not  build that branch from Revelstoke down the  North Xriri of the Arrow Lake this summer, after  having secured the $3,200a mile subsidy from the  Dominion Government. That would beone stage  towards the Slocan country. But not the sign  of an effort have they given this summer to get  the trade of the Slocan country. I am beginning to think they are like a spoilt  child,  and  s>ai^epviaitihg for the gift of the unsold balance of  the Province as an  inducement,  on  patriotic  terms, to get in and secure some of the trade of  this already rich country.    Should such apathy  and greed  be rewarded  by  the sympathy exhibited by our citizens at  the meeting of the  Board   of  Trade   on   Tuesday night?   Rather  should it not cause us  to work  more energetically to have the Northern Pacific come through  the district as quickly as possible?"   Mr. S T.  Walker,   in  an  able letter to the  Vancouver  World, says :���������"We hear a murmur that Spokane Falls and our southern neighbors are getting the trade of the Kootenay.    Indeed ! Why  should they not reap a benefit for their  intelligent progress ? Two years ago,  while Vancouver,   Victoria    and    New   Westminster   were  sleepily indifferent to  the   prospective   undeveloped wealth of the interior, Spokane's citizens were giving their thousands in  fitting out  prospectors for British Columbia and sending  JhemintoJ������ie mountains, supporting them and aiding them in their developments.   And the fact  is only now looming up before the delighted  ^yes of Vancouver's citizens, that the^ mines of  this-district   are   rich,   became evident   only  through the pluck and energy of Americans.'  5>  The sum total of the whole thing is this : The  Vancouver Board of Trade, incited by interested  parties, has committed itself to a line of pro  cedure of which, in its calmer moments, it  would see the folly. It would, and will, realize  that West Kootenay does not differ from any  private merchant in this particular: that it  will purchase supplies wherever such supplies  can best and cheapest be obtained; and that  Vancouver, Victoria, or New Westminster can  never hope for our trade so long as the C. P. R.  has a commanding position with regard to  freight rates. Let the Board of Trade doits  utmost to further the completion of the Nelson  & Fort Sheppard, and by this means compel the  C. P. R. to carry freight at a more reasonable  figure than at present obtains, then, if the coast  towns can supply us with goods as cheap and of  the same quality as we can buy in the East or  across the line, will we be as ready to trade  with them as with our American friends. Only  more so. '   The present proprietors, on taking over the  management of this paper, found, amongst the  stock in trade, an hereditary feud or vendetta,  which existed between The Miner and the  Revelstoke Star. After sitting, for a very few  w-^eks in the editorial chair, we were forced to  the conclusion that it was ridiculous of us to  take, or have taken, as serious, any statement  that appeared in our  "valued contemporary."  It seemed that the Star was getting a swollen  head because we (foolishly) appeared to attach  some importance to its ravings. We quietly  ignored it. It howled horribly for a week or  two, then subsided into a slate of resigned quiescence. Of late, becoming too indignantly  fretful to keep quiet any longer, it has burst  out into editorials of an alarmingly feverish  nature.    The Star comments upon our statement that  the Nakusp route is not the most favorable for  shipping ore, thus: "Now, Mr. Miner, that is a  lie, and you know it. You know that the Nakusp road is the only outlet where the grade is  favorable. * * * You have set your face  against any of the Slocan trade passing through  Nakusp. Why? Because it would come up the  Columbia instead of down."  We know this, Mr. Star, (to use your own  methods of address) that the best grade that  the best grade that can be obtained on the Nakusp road is a 2 per cent, climb, whereas, the  height of Slocan Lake above the crossing on the  C. & K. Railroad not being more than, at the  very outside, 75 feet, a road from the foot of the  lake to the railroad would have a down grade  all the way, and that there would be no hard  hauling to be done to get heavy loads of ore to  a shipping point. We know also that a higher  power than ourselves has set its face against  freight being hauled up stream, in preference  to floating easily down.  Further; do not imagine, Mr. Star, that we  have taken notice of yeur foamings at the  mouth because we thought for one moment  that your arguments needed refuting, but  rather because they emphasized our own contention, viz: that the Slocan River trail is the one  which will eventually be exclusively used by  railroads for bringing out ore from the Slocan  country.

Some time ago a series  of articles  appeared  in   the Miner under the  heading of "Mining  Law Reform."   Those articles were instrumental  in bringing to a focus the wide discontent with  the present law   which agitates  the  miners of  British  Columbia.      Our  member,   Mr.  Kelly.,  held meetings throughout the country, and endeavored to elicit the opinions of   his constituents on  this question.    As  was  only -natural^  there has been considerable divergence  of opinion all round.    Of the meeting held at Illecille-  waet  we have seen   no  report; the miners of  Revelstoke passed a general resolution in favor  of the 1891 Act in comparison  with  the Act of  1892, but at the same time appointed a committee to consider what amendments should be inr  trod need, thereby niak irig it clear that a return  to the 1891 Act as a whole, was not what they  desired.    The meeting at Ainsworthi resolyecl in  favor of   vertical side lines, but in other respects  favored a return to the Act of 1891, with certain  reservations.������ The Kaslo meeting; and this w^s  the mort important, as it was in the Slocan district that the new law had  been   experimented  with most, favoi ed a return to the  Act of 1891,  provided that an amendment  was  introduced,  making it necessary  to, find '"mineral  in place  before   recording   a   claim.    And   the    Nelson  meeting appointed a committee to consider the  matter ; this committee has never to our knowledge, met or done anything, but; the discussion  at the meeting plainly showed  that   the   most'  patent defects of the present law were the size  of   claims,   the section   regarding extralateral  rights, and the fact that locations could be made  and recorded where"'mineral'had not been found.  Amid all  this divergence there is  substantial  agreement, and Mr. Kelly's mandate is perfectly  plain; this country wants a return to  the principles of the 1891   Act,   with   an  amendment  which would do away  with snow,   and wildcat  locations,   by requiring  mineral  in  place on a  claim before it   is recorded.    Mr.Kelly presumably kudws more about  ruining  matters  than  the rest of the members of the Legislature, and  if he can present a clear case, there is no doubt  but that he can put the mandate he has received  from his constituents into force.    And  we sincerely hope that, irrthe interests of the country,  he will use his best endeavors to do so.  UXJliL  NELSON.  Hot and cold water;N electric bells; billiard and club  rooms; baths.

THE   -GREAT    IARDEAV   COUNTRY.  Rumors have  reached Nelson  from  time  to  time, during last summer, of rich strikes in the  Lardeau or Trout Lake district.    We are  now  >��������� able   to   give   our   readers   some   information  ��������� which may be taken as authentic.  /      What may be called the latest, and probably  ��������� the richest discoveries, have been made in a district discovered by Mike Gaieer aud one or two  <  others.    M. Gainer was one of the first prospec-  s tors in the Oceur d'Alene, and was prominent  there in the first five or six years of its development. Coming north to the Lardeau, he struck  a formarion exactly similar to the Coeur d'Alene,  only of a much higher grade, and he is well  pleased with his discoveries.  The richest district in the Lardeau contains  what may bejaptly. christened the Gainer Group,  and consists of 7 or 8 claims. The ledges are  from 2 to 50 feet wide, and assay from 40 ozs.  (the lowest) up to as high as 10,000 ozs. silver,  the ores are principally   galena,   but   on  a  few  .claims there is black sulphide, gray copper, and  silver glance; the three iast named, of course,  being the highest grade.  T. A. Mills, of Nelson, is largely interested in  the Gainer group, and also has the handling of  , one of the best properties   in   this  group.    The  following are the names and particulars of most  of the claims of  value  that   have  been located ,  this year :  GAINER GROUP.  Great Northern .20 ft. ore, assays 80 oz.  Silver Cup 20 in.    "        "*    680 oz. s. glance  Lone Bluff   6 ft.     "        "       80-oz. 70% lead  Author Bay....  8 ft.     "        "     100 oz. 60    "  Also another claim, 1 to 18 feet of ore, assays  427 to 1,200 ozs. gray copper and galena,  Abrahamson Group���������5 ft. ore. 47 gold, 80  ozs. silver and 40, per cent. lead.  Blackburn Group���������Six claims, 6 ft. ore, 30  gold, 102 silver.  Ben Raimie Group���������Seven claims, average  8 feet, 20 gold, 60 silver, 45 per cent lead.  Poole Group���������Five claims, 10 feet, 4 gold, 50  silver, 70 per cent. lead.  Haskins Group���������Eight claims, small per  cent, gold, 40 silver, 70 per cent. lead.  Wagner Group���������Three claims, 25 gold, 95  silver, 60 per cent. lead.  .'������������������ Most of these claims will be tributary to  Trout Lake, and ore can be conveniently  shipped from them either by Kootenay or  Arrow Lake.  It is evident that the rich Slocan ledges continue on northward, and apparently do not get  any poorer as they travel.  HOT   SPRINGS   TO   THS    FORE.  A. M. Johnston, acting, it is  presumed, for a  Seattle syndicate, has bonded the  Lady  of the  Lake,   the Mamie,  and  the  Sultan  claims,  at  Ainsworth, for $16,000.    It  is  intended to start  work on them at once. As soon as the machinery,  consisting of a steam or electric drill, can be got  in, a tunnel 'will'be driven from the lake shore.  Ainsworth has suffered, like all towns on the  lake, from the Slocan excitement; that she has  lots of life left yet, however, is evidenced by  the bonding of theye claims, and by other signs  which indicate that she will spend a winter  more lively than has been the oast summer.

I  Have acquired the above Townsite, and will offer Lots, to district investors, during  November, at $75 for insides and $100 for corners. Terms: One-Third down, one-  third at 6 months, one-third at 12 months. There are few Townsites in the Slocan conn-  try, and I think, after exhaustive explorations, that  c   BE.AR      IL^IBZE]      CITY  is the Best. It will probably be a postoffice, administrative and judicial centre. I expect  that next summer stages will be run to Kaslo, New Denver and Cody Greek, and that here  the 0. P. E.and Kaslo-Slocan railroads will join. Its location, in relation to the mines,  needs no recommendation. Bear Lake City glitters in the reflection of innumerable surrounding silver lodes.

Kaslo Townsite Company's land, has been surveyed. It is Jack's intention to put some of it  on the market in the form of a townsite, before  long. The lots will be 50 by 20 and no fancy  prices will be asked.  Several heavy loads have passed over the  wagon road this week, and demonstrated the  truth of what we urged in. our last issue, viz.,  that a considerable amount of work must be  done on the road before it is possible to do much  heavy freighting on it.  Judge Sproat is finding it an easy matter to  sell lots in his townsite at Bear Lake.  C. E. Perry has located four claims in the  Slocan.  The price of Watson lots seems to be steadily  advancing, several having changed hands during the past week.  A wharf is very badly needed. The float on  which freight is, at present, landed sinks in the  water, and, as a consequence, at least one ton of  hay has been quite spoiled. It is surprising  that a town like Kaslo, with such enterprising  inhabitants, should not have remedied this  matter before now.  Andy Walker and Johnny Gill (not the steamboat Johnny Gill) had a small difference of  opinion on Front street on Wednesday. Might  is right. Andy's arguments were much more  convincing than Johnny's.  The steamer Ainsworth has altered her time  of running. From this date she will make the  trip from Kaslo to Nelson one day, lie over and  return the next day to Kaslo. She will start at  9 a. m.  JOHN JOHNSON,  Proprietor.

Piggott, who means to run a post  and livery business in Kaslo, passed through  Nelson on Tuesday.  Dr. Williams, wife and family, left on Tuesday for Yale, where they intend to put in the  winter, returning to Nelson again in the spring.  In our issue of last week, in Notes from  Golden, it was stated that the assay on Vermont Creek was 217 ozs. It should have been  2,170 ozs.  In our Kaslo notes this week, by a printer's  error, Lardeaux Jack is credited with being  about to place on the market lots measuring  50x20. All Jack's lots will be the regulation  depth of 120 feet.  Before Captain Fitzstubbs, on Friday, the  11th install. F. Perry was charged by the  Davies-Sayward Company with embezzlement.  J. Elliott for the prosecution, and Messrs.  Bowes & McLeod for the defense. The accused  was committed for trial, and  released   on  bail.  Our boast last week that Mr. Galbraith had  failed to sell us a safe, was premature. While  one of us slept he approached the other. We  shall, in the spring, be able to keep our Locals  and Personals under lock and key, and so have  a scoop every week on news of this nature. Not  a soul in town will have any idea of what has  happened during the week until after the publication of The Miner.  W. N. Rolfe and W. J. Goepel left on the  Ainsworth yesterday on a visit to Kaslo.  Frank Fletcher is up on the Arrow lakes,  superintending the survey of railway blocks.  Joe Blanchard is opening his new hotel in  Pilot Bay, with a dance on Wednesday next.  Miss Corrigan, dress and mantle maker, late  of Brant ford, Ontario, advertises in this issue of  The Miner.  Chas. Hallock, in the Iron Age, has an article  dealing with the mining districts of Western  America, in .which West Kootenay, and the  Slocan country in particular, comes in for enthusiastic, yet scientific, praise.  The first snow-flake, indicative of the coming  winter, fell at 7 minutes past 12, midnight, on  Monday last. Since then a good six inches of  snow.has fallen, most of which, however, at this  time of writing, has disappeared.  R. Forrester Daly has resigned his position  as agent for the Bank of British Columbi?- in  Nelson. G. V. Holt has been appointed to the  situation thus left vacant. Mr. Daly has many  friends in Nelson who will wish him success  in whatever new work he may undertake.  John Rathwell, last week, suddenly came to  the conclusion that Nakusp wTas not the place  in which he could reside, and as suddenly made  up his mind to act up to his convictions. People  there, we are given to understand, are grieved  that he was not as prompt in his payments as  in his actions.  When the Ainsworth came up to the Government wharf on Thursday she found all the  available berths occupied. In trying to make a  landing at the end of the wharf, she carried  away her aft bulkhead on Buchanan's scow,  which had been left projecting beyond the sides  of the landing stage.
