 Tlie Mines in  Biooteitay are Among  tlte Richest in  America.  Tlie Ores urc  RIigfSi-Gra������le i3i Gold,  Silver,  Uopyer,  NUMBER 119.  KELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   00T0BEE   15,   1892.  U A YEAE.  "MR.    KEI/ME   IN   THE   MKE   COSTN.TRY.  Mr. Kellie has been with us and is now gone.  The  object of his  visit  was to  find out what  miners thought of the mining law.    He found  unanimous condemnation of the present law; a  unanimous feeling in favor of the principles of  the act of 1891; but no desire to have that law  returned to except with its defects  remedied.  Miners do hot forget that it was under that act  that the system of snow and wild-cat locations  was in full play, and they have seen enough of  the effects of that system to be unwilling to return to it.   At mr. Kellie's Nelson meeting he was  naturally most occupied with mr. Sproat's letter, which appeared in The Miner.    This letter  was,  it seems  to  us,  a mistake in policy and  judgment, not to speak of: taste.    So strong a  letter could not fail to rouse a reaction in favor  of the object of  its attack,  and this reaction  was likely to become enthusiasm when mr. Kellie. showed, as he did show, that he had been on  the right side of every  question  affecting the  interests of Wpst Kootenay. But this fact does  not alter our opinion of mr. Kellie in the very  slightest degree. We have always given him  the credit of meaning well. We can give him  credit for nothing else. To any man who has  studied politics no fact is more patent than the  enormous influence wielded by the personality  of individual politicians. Take for example the  case of the late mr. Bradlaugh. He entered the  parliament of the United Kingdom having  violated every principle of that gentlemanly  decorum which rules the staid Briton so  strongly. He had struggled with porters, and  his name was a bye-word for iniquity with those  who did not know him. Yet, no sooner was he  in the house than the rugged splendor of his  character made his name a power, never to be  mentioned by friend or foe save with honor.  And when he was at the point of death, the  record of its own, not his disgrace, was, by  a Conservative house of commons, Obliterated  for ever.  To contrast small things with great, mr. Kellie was sent to Victoria as the representative of  a district on which the eye of the province was  fixed; and as such, he was received in Victoria,  with consideration and respect.    Is mr. Kellie's  influence now as great as it was in 1890?   He  has said that the agitation in this section over  the question of the 'royalties' bill' "voiced by  their representative" made thegovernmei.it submit.    We put it to the electors of West Kootenay whether agitation, voiced by mr. Kellie,  and by mr. Kellie alone, would be effective now.  That is why we have criticised mr. Kellie.    But  mr. Kellie has tried to make it appear that we  are the representative of a clique���������and has used  his influence to  foster a jealousy against men  who have not had the good fortune to be born  on  the  soil  they have   made   their   home;   a  jealousy of whose existence  we  have   always  been aware, but which is discreditable to those  who have given cause for it, and hurtful to the  interests of the province.    We have always set  ourselves   against   the  hostility   which  has  at  times being shown between the various sections  of West Kootenay.    We set ourselves  equally  against the pitiable feelings of racial antipathy  between   Canadians,   Englishmen and  Americans.    We have no desire to gain popularity by  pandering to such animosities, and we are prepared to stand by the consequences of taking up  an independent position and sticking to it.  New Denver Townsite.  Hitherto we have been very reticent on. the  question of the New Denver townsite. We  have been content with pointing out that if this  townsite ought not to belong to the government  now, neither ought the money paid for lots already sold, to be retained by the government.  This reticence nas apparently given rise to some  misapprehension, and we have been accused of  fovoring the claim of a particular claimant to the  townsite.    We have nothing  to do   with one  claim or the other.    Our duty is filled in criticising the action of the government.    The lifting  of the reserve was only a tardy act of justice���������  the land should never have been reserved.    But  like many acts of justice,   it carries  with it a  serious   injustice.    Those   who   bought  lots  in  New Denver under the impression that it was  to be a government   townsite,   had those lots  sold to them under false pretences,   and if the  government is so influenced by consideration  of abstract justice, the money paid should be  turned.   There are certain questions about t^ e  motives of the government in this matter which  require explanation.    Why is the reserve lifted  at New Denver, and not at the head of the lake?  Surely what is sauce for the goose, is sauce for  the gander, and what the government will do  for the contested claims of messrs.McGillivray  and Farwell, it shouldalso do for the claimants at  the head of the lake.    If this question can be  satisfactorily answered,   well and  good.    If it  cannot, there remains but one solution, namely  that the influence of mr. Farwell could secure  that which the right  of  the claimants at the  head of the lake could not; and that the government in this matter has been heaping jobbery  upon injustice, and corruption   upon the  original arbitrary exercise of power which resulted  in the reserve.  NO'   PROTECTION "AGAINST   FIRE/'  MINING . LIW   REFORM.  It was only lately that we became aware of  the appalling fact that the record offices at  Ainswortii and New Denver were unprovided  with fire proof safes. Is the government mad  that it entrusts to the risk of loss by fire the  whole of the records of the Slocan country, not  to mention the mineral belt behind Ainsworth?  This is a more urgent matter.than either the  mining law ormr. Kellie. It is enough to make  a man's hair grow gray to think of what would  happen if the records at those offices wrere des-  troyed. We sincerely hope that mr..Fitzstivbbs  will see to it; at once that fire-proof safes are  placed in those offices. >It is almost incredible  that they have not been.procured before. Without protection against destruction, a-record is  absolutely no.guarantee of title.  TSIE   BI,UEBIRB>   Will'   SHIP-  ORE.  Discovered in July -'will ship ore in November.  A contract has been let for. the shipment of  100 tons of ore from the Bluebird. Men are now  at work making a sleigh road to connect with  the Kaslo wagon road at Bear lake. The history of the Bluebird is a happy augury of the  success of th*3 Slocan mining district. When  first taken hold of, the Bluebird showed large  surface cropping.-*, which were, however, very  much broken up. A tunnel has been run to cut  the lode at a considerable depth and nob only has  a four and a half foot lode been found in place,  but the ore of which there is a large body, assays 25 ounces to the ton higher than the surface croppings. The Bluebird has gone down  and shows up better the further down it has  been worked.  Strcicli it I^uclty.  A  rich gold find  is said to have been made  near Northport by 2 laborers who- went, on   a  prospecting trip, accompanied by an axe and a  sublime trust in providence.  BSusiness  ���������InaMge. ���������  Bourne Brothers,   Revelstoke,    have   bought  the business which messrs. Hunter and McKin-  non established at New Denver.  Editor   Miner,���������Unless  we have favorable  mining legislation we will be at a great disadvantage in getting results from the ores in our  mines,   and   inducements   to   offer   to   capital  to   assist  in  developing  our  mines,   compared  with the  older districts in the United States.  The probability of a railway being built from  Salt Lake city to Los Angeles will soon direct  attention to that portion of western  Utah and  soiithern Nevada,  where numerous deposits of  low grade ores are known to exist,  and while  we  would have  the  advantage over them,   in  abundance  of timber and water,   they  would  have  the advantage of almost natural wagon  roacls, giving them cheap transportation of their  ores to the railroad, a better winter climate and  a better market for their lead than we have at  present.   The cost of raining supplies is much  less than here.    In Colorado's new camps,  for  instance,  (Creede and   Cripple creek) powder,  (No. 2, giant) costs $18 per 100 pounds,  while,  here it costs $25.    Fuse, there, $5.50 per pound ;  here it costs  $9.    Caps,  there,   $6 per  pound;  here they cost $11.    Candles, (Goodwin's) there,  $4 per box of 40 pounds ; here for the same, $8  per box.    Our success depends on showing that  we have larger  bodies of good  ore;  that our  claims  are   well defined,  and our titles  good  that the conditions of cost of mining as well as  of  smelting and the  market for   metals   will  rapidly improve.  To do this it will be necessary,  I think, to require mineral to be found before a  claim can be legally located, and the same development work should be done on it, within 2  months from the date of location (say a shaft,  or open cut, 8 feet deep) and that an open path  should be cut out 6 feet wide, through the timber,   if   located in  the  woods,  for a couple of  hundred feet  on   each   side of   the   discovery  shaft on the claimed line of the vein or deposit,  which discovery shaft and center line should be  determined  by   instrumental survey   and   the  field notes connecting it with some older claim  or established mineral  monument (or natural  object easily identified) to prevent changing its  position or  courser should   be added  to,   and  made part of,  the  original record of location,  sufficient time and space on the books of record  being given for that purpose.    The fees for recording should be reduced, so that mining in its  earlier stages should not  be hampered..   I enclose a list of  the  rates   charged  in  El Paso  county,   Colorado,  this year.    By  it  you   will  notice the fee for recording a location of mining  claim is 75 cents, of mining deed $1, power of  attorney, 75 cents, and for miscellaneous documents 30 cents per folio, per first 100 words, and  7& cents for each succeeding 100 words, with additional charges  for  each name above one in  deeds, etc.;  indexing 30 cents, and 25 cents for  each full copy of acknowledgment (above one)  on.   each   document.    Compared   with  ours  in  British   Columbia they are  reasonable.    More  work and less fees should be the policy, and no  taxes, only on the net output of mines, and, to  foster  mining,   that  should be a light tax, especially on rmnes of limited annual net output.  No  mine can   run  long unless allowed to pay  some dividends.    My first  mining was in  Gilpin county,  Colorado,   in 1860,  where fortunes  were  made  out of claims from 100 to 300 feet  long,   on  gold quartz  veins,   so I may be prejudiced in favor of small claims.    It is not the  countries in   which  large   tracts   of   land   are  granted   for   mining   purposes    that    mining  flourishes.    It is where the claims are small and  the mines worked and compelled by law to be  worked or else revert back to the public domain.  Although the United States mining law of congress of 1872, allows claims as large as 1500 by  600 feet to be located, the state law in Colorado  limits the size to 75 feet on each side of the cen-  .'!  7  MwmtmtatlWlBIMMMWm^  '""MMM^ !$i  as  ���������W  ������7  TEE MUTER:    NELSON,  B.  0.,  SATUEDAY,  OCTOBER   15,  1892.  ������  f  S7  {������:.'���������  tre-line of the claim in Boulder, Gilpin or Clear  Creek counties, and to twice that width in other  counties.      Just one-quarter and  one-half the  limit allowed by the United States law.   Most  of the other mining states and territories of the  United States have allowed claims to be located  to  the full congressional limit.    The result  is  that Colorado, though probably not any richer  in minerals, nor larger in area Of mineral lands  than  any of them,  hasf it is   claimed,   more  capital invested in her mines than all the others.  English capital seeks  Colorado as   a favorite  field for investment.   If it was simply mineral  ground that was wanted, larger claims could be  purchased cheaper elsewhere; but it is the mineral and   favorable conditions for working it  that attract the miner and the capitalist.   Kich  mines of the precious   metals  are  always and  everywhere very limited in extent, though the  area of mineral lands may be extensive in the  region   where  those few profitable mines are  found. And it is only by development that they  are known������to exist.    But few pay in the surface.    Many do  not extend far enough below  the surface to pay for extensive development,  roads, etc.    Itdhas been the general experience,  I think,  in all mines of the precious  metals,  that but few rich ore chutes extend over 500  feet along, on, or hear the surface of a permanent  vein.    That 1000 feet is enough for one claim on  a lode is shown by the large number of claims  that are staked off much less than the 1500 feet  allowed���������especially in  a rough and   timbered7  country.    Under the old Spanish laws of Mexico a mining claim was 200varas (about 550 feet)  in length on a vein, and a shaft about 10 yaras,  (about 27 feet) had to be sunk on the vein before  it could be "denounced" (located) and it was ^required to be worked by at least 4 men, for not  less than 8 months in each year.    Under the republic  of Mexico mining has not advanced as  rapidly as it should with the abolition of the old  Spanish royalty tax of one-fifth of the gross  output; but within the present year the size of  claims has been  reduced to 100 metres square,  and it is likely that with the start given to Mex-  Ticah smelters by the McKinley tariff, the mining industry .will soon be flourishing there.    If  the price of silver and its rate of coinage should  soon be established by international agreement,  as  we all hope it will, and with good mining  laws, British Columbia will hold its own with  the best of them, having much -more "known-  to-be" mineral country,  unlocated, than all the  i-est of the continent.    A little more of the repressive policy and others will get the start and  the pull away from us.    A friend of mine went  into the Slocan district to prospect this summer,  and after going, as he thought, beyond the farthest snow claim, he went to work, and, after a  while,   found some good looking galena.    To  make sure the ground was open to location, he  made   diligent  search  through  the woods   all  around and finally found thrft some "gobbler"  had been on the adjacent ridge and with his axe  and lead  pencil  had located a claim 1500 feet  square, which included the galena he had found.  Disgusted at the discovery he covered up his  galena float and left that section, going to the  United States,   but   intending to  return  next  year, and if the ground was then vacant re-locate it and work  it.    The chances are that if  anything should be found encouraging, this fall,  in that vicinity, it will be re-located again without  work  for another year,   by another  lead  pencil prospector. R.

For the past month or six weeks we have  been short-handed. In consequence our editorial hand has been playing like a lambent  flame over a case of brevier, whilst another  editorial foot has been working like a jig-saw on  the treddle of the press. Also as a consequence  we have considered ourselves lucky if we got  The Miner out by Sunday evening. "All  work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." And  when one has to work all the time for nothing  the danger of becoming dull, and thin as well,  is doubled. The Hot Springs News lias been  run at a loss for . a long lime past. As we are  not in the newspaper business solely and entirely for the sake of the fun of the thing, we  came to the conclusion that the News had better die, and died it has. The time that we  spent on this sheet will be spent more profitably  in collecting and publishing details of local interest in a manner more complete and. full, '  even, than before. We have to apologise for  the cramped appearance of our pages this week.  By next Saturday we hope to issue a paper in  which some changes will be apparent-���������changes  for the better, we believe.  In the Spokane Review of the 10th -instant, is  a letter from mr. Frank Fletcher*, in which mr.  E. C. Carpenter gets a severe dressing down for  having made certain statements in the Spokane  Spokesman.    As a  matter of fact,   and  as explained in our issue of the 1st instant, mr. Carpenter never, to his knowledge, saw a Spokesman reporter during his stay in Spokane, and  most  emphatically denies   ever   having   made  any such statements as are attributed to him in  the interview  in question.    Mr.  Fletcher's letter, as a refutation of the opinions expressed in  the article in the Spokesman, is fair enough and  just enough, but, after the explanation given a  fortnight ago,   to jump  on   mr.   Carpenter for  having   made   those  objectionable  remarks, is  neither fair nor just.      Owing to pressure of the local matter the  "editorial remarks" this week are shorter than  usual���������at which, we presume, there is no kick  coming���������certainly not from the writer.  The following is a letter from mr. Kellie. We  ask mr. Kellie's pardon for making a few necessary alterations to it:  Editor Miner,���������I have been informed that  G. M. Sproat was at the public meeting or outside the building while I was refuting the state  ments made by him in a, 2-coIumn article in The  Miner. A man who lacks moral courage to  meet a political opponent and substantiate  charges made in a newspaper over his signature  ���������is beneath contempt. It is cowardly in the extreme. I have too much respect-for. myself and  my constituents to allow myself to be drawn  into a newspaper controversy to besmirched by  arguments which savor largely of the pole-cat  style.

Being an . old Calit'ornian,  he used his "gold eye" in  that northern country, and  reports  as follows:    "What puzzled  me most in all my travels of exploration in the  Peace river and Omineca districts was that such  enormous wealth, almost at the doors of Victoria,   should   have   been   unprospected.     The  prospectors in these districts are a mere handful,  while the larger portion still remains untrodden by  the feet of the 'pale face.'    I  am  confident that next year will see a great boom  in those districts,  and I will tell  you my reasons.    The prospectors this year have made exceptionally  good 'finds' and the news of their  success has traveled far and wide through the  medium --of/'t'he  press.    The  moiiied   men   are  now casting their eyes in this direction, where a  few years ago they thought it sheer nonsense to  ���������invest;'they now seea big profit behind their  investments.    Grold is found in paying quantities extending from the Cariboo through to the  Peace river  district.    The  country is literally  flooded with it, and every day is revealing mor-e  buried wealth..   There  are 2 routes  by   which  this district can be reached.    One up north and  through the Skena river, which is the shortest,  and with the building of proper trails would be  the easiest.    The other is  by the Eraser river,  which river can be ascended" to near the Glacier  house from which there is a good trail into the  district,    Eleven  young  men  entered   by   this  rather circuitous route this spring.    They had  pack horses with them, implements and provisions.    Seven of their number will remain there  during the winter.    Four will return south for  stores and to bring up more miners.    I heard  .that these young men had done well and I do  not doubt that if they have a little pluck each  of them will make a small fortune.    The pack  road through from  Cariboo is 400 miles long.  And while talking of these young men I would  like to correct a prevalent false impression of  the intensity of the cold in these regions.    That  the winter is cold I am not going to deny.    The  thermometer often falls 'SO degrees below; but  the   cold  is   not felt.    Miners work   when   the  glass  stands  that  low  without   protection   to  their faces.    The cold is not felt at all severely,  and you never hear of such  a thing  as  being  frost-bitten.    I know that these statements do  not agree with the public impression.    Public  impression and facts are often as near akin as  right is to wrong.    Near Tom's creek or claim  silver nuggets have been found in large numbers as large a man's thumb, and gold nuggets  not much smaller and in scarcely less quantity.  In this region a fine quality of copper has been  located,   and  it alone would pay' the working.  On  Lome creek   the gold is coarse and heavy  and exists  in  large  quantities.    A  very short  time from  now  will  see a great rush to this  northern country and then look out for good  times.

He is about  to publish a book on British Columbia.  The provincial government has appointed a  royal commission to enquire into the causes of  the recent small^pox outbreak, and to make  such recommendations as ma.y be considered  advisable, of rules and regulations as may be  necessary to prevent another invasion. The 2  commissibners named are sir Matthew B. Beg-  bie and dr. A. E. Praeger, of Nanaimo. It is  understood the sittings of the commission will  commence next week. Witnesses will be examined, and the results of the 'different'- methods of  dealing with the disease, as gathered from the  varied experiences in rhe different cities, will be  brought out for general information.  Very little news of definite character is obtainable regarding the lieutenant governorship of  British Columbia. It is understood that there are  only 3 gentlemen whose names are under consideration���������senator McDonald, and messrs Mara  and Dewdney.    The cabinet has not taken the  matter up, formally.    Strong influence is being  brought   to   bear in favor   of   mr.   Dewdney.  When mr.Bowell was at Victoria, a deputation,  consisting of messrs. Davie, Vernon andPooley,  waited    on   him.    They; urged,   among   other  things, the appointment of mr. Dewdney to the  governorship as the most acceptable man who  could   be  chosen.    It  is  said  that mr.   Bowell  raised the  point  that mr. Dewdney would be  looked upon as an outsider, and the reply of the  delegation is understood to have been that mr.  Dewdney was an old British  Celumbian, who  had been only absent from the province on his  official duties, and that his appointment would  be well received by the province.   The members  of the  provincial  government embodied   their  views in favor of mr. Dewdney in a  memorial  to premier Abbot.  CIEfBAJH   ���������>F   TSBE   WOIfcU^S   NEWS.  Lord Tennyson, the English poet laureate,  died on October 5th, aged 83.  The Greek government has established a five-  day quarantine against picket boats from Austrian ports, and an eleven-day quarantine  against persons from Buda Pesth.  Reports from Canton, Brazil, to a Philadelphia  merchant reveal a sad story of yellow fever at  that important seaport in South America.    The  epidemic has been raging for months and the  dead are piled in trenches.    It is claimed more  victims were swept away in and around Santos  than   died   in   central   Europe   from    cholera.  Three   hundred   and   forty-seven   vessels   are  awaiting their turn to discharge valuable cargoes shipped from all ports of the world, and  they will, it is claimed, be there a year hence.

A statement is made in the Vancouver papers  on the authority of mining experts, lately returned from Kootenay, that the route of the  Crow's Nest Pass railway has been changed  from Goat river to St. Mary's river and Crawford bay. finding a term inus at Pilot bay. This  is probably all founded on a statement which  appeared in The Miner that a party of C. P.  R. surveyors was located at Crawford bay.  This statement emanated from Pilot bay and  has been authoritatively contradicted. So far,  we know nothing more of the mat tar, but we  think it highly improbable that the C. P. R.  would bring this road up short on the shore of a  lake 90 miles long, and, at that particular point,  3j miles wide.  KAS1LO    NOTES.

The wagon road is now completed 6 miles out  of Kaslo, and in good condition for freighting  ore; nearly 200 men are at work pushing it forward ; the wages have been fixed at $3 a day all  round.
