Price Five Cents  ANOTHER DIVIDEND PAYEft IN THE  NELSON DISTRICT.  A BewarlMltlc Show las for Three Nattthn'  OperatUa *Wlth the llnmi Mtll.-  ftia.fjM to ha raid.  The Fern Gold Mining and Milling  Comparjy whote mine is situated about  two aud one tbird miles from Hall'e  ' aiding on tbe Nelson _. Fort Sheppard  railway iu the Nelson district has declared a dividend of $10,000 payable next  Tuesday, January 25. This ia considered  in mining circles to be a phenomenal  allowing considering the fact tbnt tbe  company ia incorporated for only $200,-  000 and baa had it. etamp mill in operation ouly about three months. Tbe  present dividend amounts to five pet  cent of the capital stock and the management expect to be in a position to make  another "payment in March next. It is  intended to push development work on  the property to aaceftain the exact value  of the ore a.v a greater depth. F. C.  Innes of Spokane is .largely interested in  the property arid-in. bd iuterview with  the Spokesman-Review, regarding tbe  mine said: ���������*-��������� ��������� .-  "Yes we have declared a dividend of  110,000-- said Mr. Innes - when asked if  the report was correct "I may say also  thntL we expect .to pay another dividend  in March, but T wont predict how large  it will be. Mining, like any other business, has its ups and down**, so the next  dividend may be large or small."  "The Fern is owned by a Vancouver  company, is it not V , .  "The company's head office is in Vancouver but the majority of the stock is  owned in Montreal. Tbe claim was  originally the property of the Montreal &  B.C. Prospecting Company and they sold  out to the present owners."  "Ton contemplate an increase in the  plant soon?"   '    .    .  -'We expect soon to bein _hape to treble  the output ot tbe mine but we are endeavoring to deoide which chemical process is beat suited to the treatment ot  our ores. With this end in view wo have  sent samples to Ban Francisco and Pen*  ver and. thorough tests will be made.  Having decided that point we expect to  increase the number ot stamps from 10 to  SO stamps and erect such a plant as will  profitably handle the tailings. We are  mining two grades of ore from different  chutes. Tbe low grade ore is run through  our mill and tbe high grade ore is shipped direct to tbe smelter. A recent shipment of tbe latter run 3.76 ounces in gold  and 1% ounces silver to tbe ton. We  have made a later shipment upon which  returns have not' been received which I  expect will run higher still.  -In the process ot milling we produce  about one ton of concentrates per day on  an average. A recent shipment of the  ' concentrates, wbiob ia about an average  in value, produced three ounces of silver  and 5.16 ounces in gold. The low. grade  ore which is run through our mill we  p estimate to average about $7.70 per ton  in free gold and $1.55 in concentrates.  "We have not yet gained sufftciieot  depth on the mine to determine the exact  diameter of the ore on low levels. We  have found, however,"' that ore that was  low grade on the surface had changed to  high grade at the 260-foot- level. We are  running auother tunnel which will tap  the ore at a depth of 385 feet. We have  three ledges ou the claim and one of  these has already been cut by this tunnel  and we expect to hare reached the tain  ledge by the middle of February. Tbe  Fern employs a regular, force of about 40  men and we have a large force engaged  in development work. There is an immense quantity of ore in sight and there  : seems no ^reason .why dividends should  not be declared regularly and in large  sums.  BTJBIEJ) IN.TBE SNOW.  the missing men could be found, and  from the condition of their outfit it is  thought that tbey must have been killed  the same dny they went out by a snow  slide, which had swept down the mountain side. Their outfit was practically  undisturbed aud the condition of their  cabin gave evidence that tbey had gone  out with the intention of returning in a  short time. In the cabin was found Mr.  Wagner's coat and vest, the vest containing nearly $100 in money. Near tbe  mouth of the tunnel about half a mile  from the cabin their tools were found.  A blacksmith shop stood near tbe tunnel  and tbey had evidently brought their  tools there to sharpen them. Tbe blacksmith Bbop had been swept away by a  snowslide about 20 ft wide and it is  supposed that the men were in it when  they met their fate. The searching party  immediately began to dig away tho snow  in Jhe hope ot finding tbe bodies. Tbey  were relieved by other parties from Ymir  and after three davs of incessant work  the search was abandoned for tbe present  The snow is very deep and tbe slides  about the mine are of considerable magnitude, which prevented tbe searchers  from working to advantage. Tbe bodies  will be left in their snowy grave until  spring when the melting snows -will solve  the mystery of their fate. Both men  were well known in Spokane and had  considerable property in different parte  ot the country. They bad tbe reputation  ot being honest and square in their dealings, of good habits and generally respected.  Mining News.  Charles Wagner and J. J. Iwu Meet am  .  lintlmelj Death. Near Wmlr.  News has been received of a tearful  tragedy near Ymir whereby two miners  named Wagner and; Lunz met their  death in a showslide early in December  It appears that on December 6, the'two.  men arrived atYmir from Spokane and  next morning engagedipackers tp.tfansr  port them nnd their outfit to the Alabama Consolidated Co's. mine about five  miles from town,��������� on which they were  engaged to do development work. The  packers left the two men at the mine  about noon on Dec. 7 th and that was the  last seen of them. It had been Wagner's  custom when working on the claim to  make occasional visits to Ymir for supplies, and on his failure to appear as  usual suspicion that something had  happened was aroused and a party of a  dozen men was organized on January 10  to go out and investigate.! :No trace of  Three carloads of ore from the Waver-  ley mine near Albert Canyon are to be  shipped immediately to Swansea, Eng.  ��������� The Ruth mine near Sandon is expected  ta pay a $75,000 dividend sometime during the present month.

A shipment of ore made last week from  the Republic mine near Slooan City to  the Nelson smelter went 205 ounces in  silver and $18 in gold to the ton.  On January 7th another dividend of  $100,000 was declared by tbe Reco mine  near Sandon making the total dividends  to date $287,000. It is expected that  another $100,000 dividend will be declared within a few days.

The Trail Creek News says: "The  water-jacket furnaces for tbe Bilver-lead  stack have arrived in Trail and the work  of construction will soon commence. Mr.  Heinze will, in all probability, remain in  Trail long enough to see the silver-lead  works on the way to completion and to  hasten the time when the Sloean ores as  well as the Trail Creek ores can be  treated in Canada."

Citizens of Nelson and of West Kootenay in general will be pleased to learn  that tbe value of exports from this port  during the. ear was greatly in exoeaf of  that of auy other port io the province  and wu6 almost equal to thai of all the  other ports combined. Tbe total export*  for the province for the year as Bbown hy  tbe customs returns were valuod at f 16,-  457,54.0, of which the port of Nelson is _  credited witb $7j715,418, an increase of  $4,911,454 over that of 1896. In value  of imports Nelsou ranks second on the  list witb 81.474,473 end Victoria firs.  with $2,913,594. In amount of duty  paid this port ranks an easy secnud with  $431,038 as against $250,049 in 1886,  Victoria contributed $733,439 in 1897  and $634,570 ia 181)������ to the revenues of  the Dominion. The above figures speak  for themselves and ore nhundant evidence of the continued progress and  development of this part of the provinoe.  The increasing development of tbe  mining iudustry aud the stimulus given  to all brancbeti uf trad.* by tbe construction of tbe Crow's Nest Pass railway leads to the belief that tbe year upon which we have just entered will show  as great if not greater percentage of increase over 1807 and more firmly establish the reputation of West Kootenay as  the mb**t prosperous and progreeaive  mining country in the world.  *������?

ABROAD AND AT HOME.  SATURDAY. JAN. 22,1898.  SOLDIERS.  The movement to form a regiment  of militia in the Kootenay3 is meeting  with success and numbers of men are  enrolling themselves. We may possibly be -wrong in using the word  ���������regiment,' hut unfortunately our  knowledge of the subject is rather  vague. Recruits will be drawn from  all over the country, one company  probably being raised at Kamloops and  its vicinity, hut the headquarters  should be here in Nelson. It will be  found that the number of men willing  to don the 'the "Widow's' uniform will  be greater here than elsewhere, and  the advantages, which have been so  often pointed out, of _V___ou**t.oe_i **������������������������]  position with her facilities of travel in  every direction, point to her as the  strategic as well as the commercial  capital of Kootenay.  An affai-r of this kind must necessarily be confined to British subjects,  a point which unfortunately excludes  our American cousins who dwell  amongst us from joining in the movement. Their appreciation of the peace  and order which they find on this side  of the line would otherwise naturally  lead them to support any movement  whose sole object is further security.  A handsome and serviceable uniform  has 'been designed; It consists of a  brown jacket, madeprobablyof cotton  for the summer and of blanket for the  winter, corduroy breeches and gaitevs,  topped with the broad, stiff brimmed  hat of the Northwest.  Tho fact that the importance of all  familiar things palls before the mag-  ni.lci-n.a of things in the great unknown has given rise to many wholesome proverbs. This strange, trait in  the human character has always left  men unsatisfied with the things that  are and driven them forth in search of  the things that may be. Our own  race is distinguished by an aggravated  form of the complaint and while it has  led mankind in general to wander from  home, it has led us in particular to  build up an empire that is the wonder  of tlio world.  Today it is driving men in shoals to  the Yukon. Already they are going  in hundreds, and presently the hundreds will become thousands. Places in  the steamers have to be booked weeks  in advance. Of all this crowd that'is  pouring itself into the frozen north,  scarcely "any have any fixed idea of  what they are going to do when they  get there, and when they at last arrive  at the great El Dorado they will not  be any hearer that vague golden future  than when they started. There are in  the Yukon now sufficient people to  take up all the placer ground of any  particular value that has yet been  discovered, and failing the discovery  of further rich beds there is practically  nothing for this surging, seething  crowd to do, hut to turn round and  come out again.  Many old hands, too wise to follow  the path of the great rush, will go  north overland through the Omineca  country, a mysterious and little known  part of our province. Hence have been  brought from time to time rumors of  gold, if not so rich as the Klondike  itself, sufficient at any rate to enable  a man to build up a fortune for him self  in a short time. The journey by this  route becomes an exploration which  is more than likely to produce results  that will keep the finder in this Province, benefitting him and us equally.  In any case this vast influx of people  to the north among whom will be  numbers of experienced prospectors,  cannot fail to result in having our  northern territory fully examined.  ��������� Meanwhile, to those who stay lie-  hind, it is comforting to think that  Kootenay is not yet a played out camp  and the greater the number that go  after the things they know not of, the  fewer of us there will be to share the  many good things that our own district affords.

It is not often that two cabinet  ministers are found making such warlike utterances as were reported in  Wednesday's papers. These speeches  are not casual words dropped partly by  accident, and possibly the bellicose  result of n too good dinner, but they  aro calm, cold, deliberate announcements mi-fle by ���������men. who know that  their word, will lw-at once telegraphed  into all the corners of the globe, and  as such will become an announcement  of Great Britain*, policy to all whom it  * iriiiy concern.  At the banquet of the Liverpool  Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Chamberlain pointed out that since the Great  Powers were bitten with "megalomania" (a new word Joe, and a good  one) the German Empire had increased  six fold ��������� and the French four fold,  while England had only added a  modest third to her colonial empire.  The important part of his speech  follows: "Looking to the certainty"  he said "that we are likely to be excluded by hostile tariffs from any  country whore the British flag does  hot float, our present policy is to take  a very firm attitude [and to maintain  free markets. *','*.������������������* We have a  three fold duty; first, to keep" what  rightly belongs tons; second, in Lord  Hosebery's words, 'to ������������������ peg out claims  for posterity': and, third, if anyone  tries to jump these claims, gently to  prevent them."   0     '  There could scarcely be a more  explicit statement and definite warning than that, unless it is Sir Michael  Hicks-Bea-ch's speech at Swansea on  ' the same evening. Sir Michael is the  Chancellor of the Exchequer and, by  no means a man to be carried off his  feet, or to allow himself to be in any  way rash. Alluding to the exciting  events in the far East,  he said that,  tERTIFICATt' Of inPKOf BWBST*.  LAURENCE   (FRAC.)  MINERAL CLAIM.

The paper .is well printed, well arranged  and is a credit to the enterprise ot the  office of publication. The subject matter  from the different sections of the province  was prepared by tbe best available  authorities and no industry has been  overlooked. Veteran and practical  miners tell from practical experience of  the wonderful riches being brought to  light from underneath the hard iron  capping of the Kootenay, from the silvery  SJoean aud from the Cas_ior placers.  Mr. William Ogilvie, explorer and surveyor for the Dominion government,  traces tbe history of the gold fields of  the Yukon and gives a comprehensive  resume of his experience aud work in  the great, northern treasure land. In  the case of the provincial cities the  mayors of each have contributed short  articles telling n story of progress along  every line. Mayor Houston of Nelson  concludes his article as follows:  "That Nelson is permanent ia admitted;  that her people are well-to- o and contented is beyond question���������for none go  hungry and none are making preparations to go to the Klondyke."  the Cro..-* Jfenl V*������������ It. ft.  Work on tho Crow's Nest Pass Bail-  way construction is progressing favorably, the rails being laid and ballasting  completed to Pincher creek, a total distance of sixty-five miles. It is expected  that before the snow comes next fall Nelson will have direct communication with  the east over this route. Interviewed by  the Winnipeg Free Press last Saturday  Mr. M. 3. Baney, superintendent of cop-  s.ruction.snid:���������  "The grading is completed to a point  live miles beyond tbe summit, or a total  stretch of 110 miles from Lethbridge. It  is, however, from the point where the  grading ot tbe Crow's Nest railway now  ends to the foot of Kootenay lake, a distance of 180 miles, where the greatest  efforts of the company are now being  made. Distributed all along these 180  miles no less than 4,000 men are at work  aud this little army of construction will  betep fc"n_no~i terf all strength all tbrougrh  the winter months. The cost of feeding  this army of construction will reach from  $15,000 to $50,000 per month. They are  paid $1.50 a day, although the bridge  builders and others earn a higher figure  and tbe men pay at the rate of $4 per  week for board. We expect to reach  Kootenay lake by October next. This  will bring tbe railway within sixty miles  from Nelson and the water is deep enough to float ocean steamship"., between  these points, but the location of this last  section is being revised and work will be  pushed forward. The rails to the summit  are 5(1 lbs., while those used beyond will  be 73 lbs., find the whole road bed and  bridges are being constructed to resist  tbe Leafiest engines aud traffic. The  coal deposits of the Pass, which begin  west of the summit and extend along the  line a distance of forty miles are already  being operated."
