The summer season, now practically  closed, in the Slocan, has piled up a  record which will be a surprise to the  majority of even those who have been  keeping track of the general condition  of affairs in that section.  Laboring under the double disadvantage of very inadequate transportation  facilities, and a slump in the silver'market, it. has still done well. While the  old. and well organized camps On the  other side of the line hvive been almost  completely demoralized for several  "months past, with but a few exceptions  work has continued ; on the principal  properties in the Slocan.  The ore train which left Nelson a short  time ago with some 150 tons of high  grade ore, was a reveletion lo many, and  it is safe to say that the. official figures  of the shipments since the first week of  August will scarcely find their equal in  any other camp of the same age, and  from the same number of proper-ties.    ,  Gathered into tabulated form the  custom house records show the following returns for the period which has  elapsed since August 1, 1863 :  Carry Complete Stocks of  General Merchandise, except  of  ware.  uj  iqiiors  and   Cigars   handled  to the  Trade only.

If this is true the business must be fni*.  .more prosperous and remunerative than  most people supposed. These figures  give an average of $55 per week to each  of the employes. Taking into consideration the margin of profit the gross receipts of the Comique must be fully  $1500 per week.

Corbin, President of the Nelson  and FortSheppard road, arrived in town  on Saturday rather unexpectedly.  It was his intention to remain for a  day or two in town, but he had not been  here many hours until he received business telegrams which called him away  at once, and he left for Hall Creek on  Sunday   morning, where a locomotive  was  in  readiness   to carry him over the  Jme.

This was one of 66.000  lbs., with a valuation of $3,300. This  addition gives a total of .1.211,009 lbs  with a valuation of $9S,084. These figures when reduced give 605A tons of ore  at an average value of $162 per ton.  It must not be forgotten that these  values are made under a customs valuation, and are certainly not exaggerated.  With   the   coming   on   of the winter  seson these, figures should be   materially  increased, as it is then    much   easier   to  handle, the ore. from   the   mines   to   the  sleigh roads, and   from   thence   to   the  shipping point.     Even though the working force in the   Slocan   is   not  greatly I  increased during   the   winter, fully 3000 j  tons   of   ore   will   probably be shipped j  between now and spring. j  This, from a section   practically   only!  two years old, and lacking railway facif- j  ities would be a good showing even with  silver at a more stimulative price.  new  considered  the  first  run over the road, and President Corbin  has   the distinction   of   being   the  first  passenger.   .,..".'..  In conversation Mr. Corbin said that  the road .would be pushed forward to  the water without delay, and Nelson,  would have a train service inside of a  month, possibly three weeks. The men  will be kept busy ballasting until the  winter sets in, but is quite likely that  such work on the. summit will be done  within two weeks, as work on either  side of it can be done much later in the  season.  "Do you intend to operate the road  this winter?" was the next question propounded.  "Do you think," replied the president,  "that I would he expending $14,000  this month for a rotary snow-plow to  keep the line open, if I did not intend  opening the road for traffic and operating it this winter.

Respecting- the. service the. company  intended to commence with President  Corbin said it would not be a daily  service to Spokane, but would be triweekly.  The subject of constructing a wagon  road from the husiness portion of the  town to the railway company's depot on  the hill-side was broached, but the matter was left over for future consideration  on Mr-. Corbin's return, which will probably he in two weeks, when the line  w ill probably be completed. Mr. Corbin  will then make a business trip through  the district.  There were several disappointed people  in Nelson on Sunday when it was learned that Mr. Corbin had gone back over  the line, as several had contemplated  calling on him at the hotel. t.  THE SILVER 00MPR0MI'iE BILL WAS  ' STRANGLED.  The BBixh Hopes of (he Friends of Silver  that a- Conclusion was Itcsichcd were  Stashed (o the Ground. Tilings now  Appear no Nearer Conclusion.  Washington, Oct. 23.���������-The opinion is  now general among those senators who  will discuss the question at all that the  compromise bill, over which they were  so sanguine Saturday, will never be introduced in the senate. The reason for  this is that the compromisers have been  unable to get a sufficient number of  pledges to guarantee the passage of the  bill, and they have said from the beginning that uuless they could secure, a majority they .would'not introduce the bill.  The most authentic report, states the  number of pledges as thirty-nine, or four  short of a majority. The pledges are all  by Democrats. '  In this strait the Republicans have  been appealed to for help, but have all,  repeal and silver men alike, refused to  join the movement. Some give positive  refusals ; some -diplomatically" said they  must see the bill first. The repeal Republicans refused because of the failure  to provide foiea bond issue of the short  time the Sherman law is to be continued.  There is a belier that the two Republican factions may unite upon a bill, and,  with the aid of the Populists and possibly a few Democrats, pass it.  The Democratic senatorial managers  seem all at sea. as to the situation. However,:.they are still at work among the  members, and even hope to bring the  president to their way of thinking.  . In case of absolute failure, the senate  'may either adjourn to Dec. 1, press the  bill on the present plan or attempt a  closure. Doubtless Hill will press his  closure resolution if siu:eof sufficient assistance.  There is no mistaking the-fact .that,  many silver Democratic Senatars feel  greatly relieved that the compromise  amendment will not be offered. They  say they surrendered their canvic.tions  contrary to then best judgment, and  they are more than willing to have the  administration take the responsibility  of not accepting a settlement. Some repeal,Senators who have heretofore stood  staunchly by the administration are also  criticising the course which was pursued  in the compromise matter by the; administration.  The Closure Looms Ui������.  Voorhees stated-��������� this afternoon that  he would close to-day's session and end  the legislative da.y of Tuesday by moving an adjournment till to-morrow. It  is surmised that this action mayebe for  the purpose of putting matters in shape  foi  bringing up the closure! question.  When it became apparent to-day that  the compromise scheme had failed, the  silver men renewed their old tactic* of  calling a quorum.

This time the matter  has been laid before the city fathers, and  they have been urgently requested to  shut the place up.

R. Machray who recently made an extensive trip through this region in behalf of the Toronto Empire was rounded  up by (be Spokane Review and ^interviewed as follows :  "Canada- will soon be face to face  with its own silver quest ion." The prophetic words are those of Robert Macli-  ray, who 'represents The Empire, the  leading 'newspaper of Toronto, Can.  The Empire is the official organ of the  dominion government, and the voice of  the conservative party of the whole of  Canada.  Mi-. Machray lias spent three months  in the mining regions of British Columbia, his mission being to learn as much  as possible about t lie production of silver north of the British line.

"Canadian silver coins are minted to  order in Birmingham out of silver purchased in London, in comparatively  small quantities. The result is the. finest, brightest, sharpest and prettiest; silver coin in the world, but pretty coins  don't make political economists. Now  we. have got to lace a new issue. I have  predicted that the Slocan mines in three  years will produce from 25,000 to 50,000  tons of silver ore. We have got to take '  care of the product, and protect it as we  do other industries of our own. The ore  is almost phenomenal, too. Its value in  silver- and lead is beyond anything we in  eastern Canada ever thought of."  ������ -������  a iii*i^KM.im*.'^in<)i^flffl  I l^ii>t'HI IH.tllimF Ifl'llMyi^l    I III'IF!

The subject of wood sawing leads  one  by easy stages to a consideration  of  the  late "secession" convention held at Katn-  loops.    This movement, born of dissatisfaction   at   the   action   of   the government in erecting   an   expensive   set   of  buildings at Victoria, has had  a  rather  amusing   history.     It   began    with    a  choral's of  howls  in   which  the leathern  lungs -of  several   mainland    politicians  could be distinctly beard above the  din.  From this it materialized into a  number  of circulars of  appalling  length,  reverberating resolutions, and passionate  appeals to the powers and the people.    To  the call for a  convention   at   Kamloops  was but  a step.    The   outcome of  the  movement   might have  been   different,  but someone tacked the title "secession''  on the agitation,   and  it   began  to  feel  sick from that time on.    The day set for  the convention drew very near, and even  the     in.mediately    adjoining     districts  neglected to elect delegates.    It was a.  very  weak  and  dispirited  company  of  "sore    heads"   that   finally    assembled.  The roar of the fire eaters had sunk to  a  fitful wail, and at the conclusion   of   the  convention,   the  consensus   of   opinion  appeared to be that   "anyhow   the  government ought  to  have  paid   more   attention to us."    And so it was written.  The   Philadelphia; Press , not es  ' that  " the English  coal strike has cost up   to  ten clays ago, on the  calculation of the  Birmingham     Post,     $50,000,000.    .. The  wages alone represent   $10,000,000.  with  bO'0,000  men out of work, and   the  railroads lose as much more.    The pit-owners are losing $1,SIX),000 a   week, or $20,-  000,000,   and  the   industries  which   had  been stopped by the strike have  had a  loss of $20,000,000.   Now that a, fortnight  more has been added to the strike, which  is still in progress, the aggregate' loss is  probably $60,000,000, with the certainty  of failure-for  the men   from   the. start.  Thirty years ago England  was producing two ibirds of the world's coal : thirteen years ���������Ago its pits were   turning out  just  short  of half; to-day they are' producing a bare third.

The Miner is in receipt of the following communication re the matter of the  sale or giving away of town lots :  Editor Miner :   In your issue of the  21st inst. >ou  criticise  my  methods  of  doing business as a dealer in real estate,  and   in   endeavoring  to   make  a point  against  me, ask if 1 am  willing to  sell  lots in New Denver at $5 each.    As I am  but the agent of the owners of that portion of the New Denver townsite locally  known  as  the " McGillivray addition,"  I cannot do otherwise than follow  the  instructions  given   me by   the  owners.  Their instructions were to offer prospectors and   miners   two 25-foot lots at  a  nominal price on condition that  habitable cottages be erected on the lots within a reasonable'time.    The offer- was advertised for several weeks in the Slocan  Prospector,  a  newspaper   published  at  New   Denver,   and the offer still   holds  good. ,  John Houston.  Nelson, October, 23rd, 1893.  If the Miner has done the agent  of  the "McGillivray addition" an injustice,  we hasten to  apologize.    At the same  time it would be interesting to know.  1. How many have taken advantage  of this offer ?  2. Of these, how many would not  have located in that vicinity in any  event?.  3. How many would remain if they  failed to find a means of livelihood in  that section ? ,  4. If the company proposes to follow  fecti it is credited with the best woi'k  yet done on the Snake river placers,  where the amount of flour-gold is very  large. It is sain that Taylor's machine  has been in use all summer and cleaned  up from $30 to $50 per day.  LM^MiaiXttmm&ii.viwiMFBnzis&S  KLEIrJSOHMLDT'S LOCATIONS  J.  this policy indefinately?  5.

Carl Kleinschmidt, the well known  Salmon River placer man left Nelson  Mondaymorning for a group of claims  which he and several others have, located  about fifteen miles from Nelson.  Pending the arrival of assay returns  Kleinschmidt has kept rather quiet  about these locations.    Now that he has  his assays, he pushed out at once with  several men and will ascertain what  there is in the properties which he has  discovered.  There are ten or twelve locations in  the group, the assays from which show  gold, silver, and copper/- From one of  the locations, known as the British Lion,  the assay return was 48 dollars in gold,  33 ounces in silver, and 29 per cent copper. There were nine assays made in  all, the specimens for the same being  sent to Helena, Spokane and other  outside points. The lowest assays  showed thirteen per cent in copper, two  ounces in silver, and $9 in gold. These  are all surface assays.  Associated wit*? him in the quartz  location^ are Messrs. Roster, McKelvey,<  Malloy and Gray, and all have great  expectations of their property.

So far-as can be learned,  however, no word has y,'f been received,  and as these officials were like unto the  proverbial oyster before 1 heir departure,  the  good people   of   Kaslo  continue to  pine in  ignorance.    The amount of real  knowledge  possessed   by the   public re  Kaslo-Slocan railroad affairs   resembles  very   much  the   elusive light  from  the  eyes of a black cat in a suhcellar at midnight.'

Telegraphic information was received  in Nelson during the week that Mrs.  Lynch has succeeded in obtaining possession of her two little girls. Government agent Kirkup sent down word  that the children had been detained in  Revelstoke until their mother arrived  and then turned over to her. The anxious mother, glad to obtain possession of  her little, ones was quite willing to drop  any further proceedings against her husband, and it is probable that he will be  allowed to go his way without being  further molested.  IColiner's Ferry Indulges in Another  a Cost'of ������15,000.  The hand of fate seems to hang heavy  over the town of Bonner's  Ferry.    For  the third time in three weeks this luckless village has been visited by lire and  each time the loss has been severe,   Last  week somewhere near the middle of the  night a lire was discovered in   the  stationary   store,   of Barney   Morris.    An  alarm was given and every effort made  to  check the flames, but in vain.    The  building  was  soon abandoned and   the  crowd turned its attention to the Palace,  hotel.   This  was  the   largest and  best  building in the town.  Some of the furniture was saved but  the building went up in smoke. A bi_  two story building alongside blazed up,  and then a smaller one alongside and for  a time it appeared as if the entire town  must go. The heroic aud determined  efforts of the crowd we're at last successful and the fire was prevented from  spreading, and soon burned itself out.  The loss is estimated at $15,000. Of  this $10,000 was in the Palace hotel  which was uninsured. The Morris building, where the lire started, was fully  insured. Dr. F. L. Roberts was burned  out for the second time.

For many  years   it  has  been   known  that, the bars along the Snake and lower  Columbia   rivers   contain   an   immense  quantity of Hour-gold.    Many and various   have been   the  schemes  devised to  recover this gold, all more or less unsuccessful.    During   the   past   season    the  stimulus to  the search for gold has  resulted   in an   unusual   number  of these  fine gold saving machines.    The mining  and  Scientific Press refers to the latest  appliance as follows :  A prospector named Taylor, of Idaho,  thinks be ha* solved the Hour-gold problem, so vexatious to placer miners.    He j  has   invented  an   appliance,   consisting j  chiefly of a sluice-box, in the  bottom <>f |  which is a  row of  overlapping   boards, j  These   boards, prior   to being  placed   in |  the sluice, are smeared with white lead j  and then sprinkled with sand.  Over this '  surface the water runs in a slow stream.  The gravel reaches the sluice through a j  grizzly.    The gold and sand settle to the !  bottom   and are caught   on the  sanded;  boards.     After  the sand and  gold   has  accumulated it is taken up and amalgamated in a  quicksilver   bath.    This device, it is said, can  be worked at a cost  of about $10 per day, and, while not pcr-  j Nakusp, and letting their goods lie over  | in Revelstoke, the president of the company and one of the directors made a  personal inspection of the freight sheds  at Revelstoke, and found that there was  not. a pound of freight left in the sheds  ; the last trip down.
