[From'our own correspondents.)  NEW DENVER.  Messrs. Abercrombie & Valentine;  who are interested in the Little Daisy  group on Eight Mile Creek, went down  to that propei ty this week to do some  development work. Several very  good assays have been made from rock  from these claims, showing, considerable gold.  On the Currie claim, situated on the  Galena farm, the owners in an open  cut have exposed a'considerable body  of concentrating '.ore, but so far no  walls have been found. -As its name  implies, the Galena farm is very thickly covered with float, but, as far as we  can hear, no solid ledge has been  found. .    .  Outside the store at the concentrator is a huge' chunk of galena from  the Yakima. It weighs 1,940 pounds  and must be quite the largest piece  brought down from any mine in the  district.  Through the courtesy of Mr. Bowman ot the concentrator we can give  a few particulars of the work accomplished by* the mill. 717 tons of Alamo  ore were crushed, yielding 215 tons of  concentrates, about 3��������� to one, which  averaged 153 ounces of silver and 55%  lead. At present the mill is working  on Idaho ore, ancj daily crushes an  average off J tons, giving 16 tons of  concentrates.  . Eight hundred tons of clean, ore  have been shipped from the Idaho and  the following are the returns of seven  carloads: 115 ozs. silver, 62% lead;  132 ozs. silver, 06% lead; 132 ozs. silver,  (56% lead; 121 ozs. silver-, 65% lead; 120  ozs. silver, 64% lead; 135 ozs. silver, 67%  lead; lrSozs. silver, 67% lead per ton.  The sleighroad from the Alamo and  Idaho mines is getting in very bad  shape and ore is only sleighed down  at night.  The track to the Forksisin very bad  shape and even should the long delayed train.from .Nakusp arrive here,  some days must elapse before it can  get to the Forks. Mud slides and  rocks cover the track in a dozen places  and each frost and thaw renew the  trouble.  There is an immense amount of ore  and concentrates awaiting shipment  at the concentrator and the blockade  is',causiiigmost serious- inconvenience  to mine owners.  ��������� '.'   '       'j  ��������� The snow slides ��������� on the Railway were  cleared off and traffic resumed last" Wednesday. Mr. E.' J. Mathews of the Omaha  aud Grant Smelter informs ns that 120  tons a day are now being shipped to their  works.  E. A.

The office' is fairly  busy. Fifteen new claims were recorded  duriug the first week in March and nine  transfers; in addition to other documents.  Many new stores and buildings of  various kinds are going up. W. J. Wilson  will open *a butcher's shop as soon as  traffic on the Columbia River is resumed.  A brickyard has been started, there  being a large supply-of excellent clay.  The frame of Wassbolm's hotel is up.  Huntley's store is nearly ready and the  ground is being cleared for the Dover-  Teetzel building. But all building operations are limited by the supply of lumber. The portable sawmill of the Nelson  Sawmill Co. is working to its utmost and  has orders booked for weeks ahead.  Men came to Mr. Rolfe with cash in their  hands and-had to be refused. The company has ordered a new 35 h. p. boiler  from Spokane and a new planer, which  are expected to arrive about the end of  this week.  The inhabitants of this camp are show  ing their public spirit by putting up cold  cash to make improvements on the road  to Northport. About $1,000 are wanted.  The Le Roi and War Eagle subscribed  $250 each nnd the rest is being put up by  th. inhabitants of the district.  , The value of the War Eagle ore as now  declared on the customs munifests is  gold, 2.23 ounces; silver, _ ounces; and  copper", 5 per cent.  i * -  A very flue specimen of free milling  quartz has been found iu the O.

Palmer, who came in  from Butte, have, purchased the Poorman,  Novelty aud California claims, for which  they paid 820,000. They intend to organize a company aud stock tbe properties  for a large amouut. Their future operations, besides energetic development; will  probably include a reduction plant.

A new hooter on the s.s. Nelson has  been obtruding" itself with some persistence on public attention during the  past week. The new weapon is almost  strong enough to exchange toots with  ono on a sister ship trading down the  Columbia. It is a local product ion and  is the result of the ingenuity of Harry  Sweet, the engineer of the Nelson.  We believe that unlike its more costly  brothers it is made simply out of an  old piece of steam pipe. There will he  no necessity in ihe. future to send  abroad for steam whistles.  At at an adjourned meeting of subscribers to the hospital held on Thurs-  ij day last the following gentlemen were  1 elected to   rill  the places of the six  retiring directors. Messrs. A. J.

This'is a direct consequence of the starting of the smelter  across the lake.  The Silver 0.ucstton. .  It is impossible to escape from the feel-  ing of hesitation begotten of the fact that  ho one'connected with the bullion market will commit "himself to a confident  opinion that silver has yet seen its worst.  It would be difficult to exaggerate the  injury that has already been done to investors by the ruinous depreciation in  silver. Debtor countries have made it  the pretext for default, banks doing an  eastern business have had to write down  their capital to meet the losses in which  it has" involved them; railways earning  their revenues in silver and paying their  dividends iu gold have suffered by the  cruel exactions-of an ever-tumbling exchange; India has had to resort to a  scheme of duties in restriction of trade;  Peru has fuiled to fill her engagements  with the corporation representing the interests of the old bondholders; iu fact,  lookTwlrerewe will7"*we"come_iicrrss"the"  scars and gashes of* that depreciation  which was, in the first instance, set going  by the great western movement making  for .the demonetization of silver * * *  The chief sufferers from this multiplicity  of evils would natmally be British investors, We are contiuually being remiuded  that England is the creditor nation par-  excelleiice, iiud, so far as the depreciation  of silver is coucerned, we are meetiog  with disagreeable proofs" of it almost  every-day. No oue cau reckon up what  the fall in silver, stimulated and encouraged, if not provoked, by the fatuous  policy of closing the Indian miuts, has  cost investors in this couutry. Their loss  is certainly to be measured by millions.  Their income has diminished und the  capital value of their securities has  shrunk to pitiful dimensions. If there  be even the smallest danger of the area  of trouble being widened, as it would be  by any other considerable drop iu silver,  it seems to be the duty of statesmanship  to come forward with some practical  proposal for averting the mischief.���������London Financial News.

After a long delay the smelter at  Pilot Bay was blown in on Saturday  last, 9th March, and already visitors  are availing themselves of the few  minutes the steamer waits at the  wharf to rush up, view the molten  bullion pouring into the molds and  surreptitiously abstract a lump of- the  metal that has overflowed. At Nelson,  Kaslo, Ainsworth and no doubt  throughout the Slocan, these little  dollups of silver lead are passed from  hand to . hand for inspection and  attract as much attention as if they  were a fetish of the most powerful  kind. And so they are, for they are  the outward and visible sign of our  dawning prosperity.  On the 23rd July last year Mr. A. B.  Hendryx with some other gentlemen  arrived at Pilot Bay. There they  t'ound the shells of their buildings,  only partly finished, standing as they  had been for some time. The concentrator was partly roofless and had no  walls. There were no chimneys. Th*-  whole place might have been a well  carried out attempt to imitate an  ancient ruin. It had that woe-begone  appearance that stamps incomplete  enterprises. They might well be  called good intentions materialised,  and be used for the same purpose.  But idleness, decay and ruin do not  seem to thrive well where Mr. Hendryx is. Nor is standing still m his  line. Go ahead is his motto-and the  very bricks and mortar obey hirn. In  seven months tin^e these works were  completed to the last nail, the. last  shingle, the last lace in a driving belt,  and when all was ready he said "Go."  And everything went. And it has got  to k_ep going.  As the visitor approaches Pilot Bay  the works form au important feature  in the landscape. Two tall chimneys  pour forth light clouds of steam and  smoke. Its site seems well chosen.  It stands on a peninsula nearly in ' the  centre of the east shore of the lake,  exactly opposite the outlet to Nelson.  The works consist of a concentrator  at the west end, the smelter building  facing the wharf to the south' and a  large building. which contains the  roasting furnaces to the north. These  three buildings partially enclose a yard  in which are bins for the ore, lime,  coke, charcoal, etc.- These things are  hauled from the barges up an inclined  plane to the otpp of the concentrator  building, whence they can be despatched to any part of the works or  over their respective bins iu the yard.  There is also an elevator, by which the  concentrates or other material can be  lifted to the level of any part of the  works. The yard is on a level with  the feeding floor of the smelter, thus  affording a means for making up the  "charges" without difficulty. Other  buildings are scattered about. A  smith's -shop and a carpenter's shop  near the main buildings, while a little  farther off are the office and assay  house.  The concentrator house is the largest  building. It contains two 9 x 15 Blake  Crushers, four 4 compartment' arch  jigs, two double column jigs, two  double-deck-Buddie-Tables-and _two_  Frue Vanners. Itcandeal with2C0tons  of ore a day. Mr. O. Abeling presides  over this department.  The* roasting house contains four  reverbatory furnaces, each 65 feet by  17 feet, capable of dealing with 12 tous  a day, _S tons altogether. There is  room for another furnace and this will  probably be filled by a mechanical furnace which win do as much work as  the other four put together.  The smelter house at present contains  one stack only, but there is room for  two more. This stack can accomnio-  100 tons of ore a day,. with its'' accompanying lime, charcoal, coke, etc.,  amounting to another 40 tons. It is  not al present being worked quite up  to its full capacity as most of* the men  are new to the work. They are kept  pretty busy drawing off and disposing  of the slag and they are somewhat  cramped for room' owing to the smali-  ness of the cooling ground. This will  be remedied as tho slag tip grows  bigger day by day. Since Saturday  last the output of bullion has boon  about 20 tons a day. This amount will  of course.vary with the value of the  ore treated. Whatever goes in at the  top has to come out at the. bottom,  either as bullion or slag.  Many of our readers are doubtless  familiar with the aspect of .a smelter,  but to those who are not the scene,  especially at night, is a weird one.  The stack stands in the centre of the  floor, a huge furnace of brick and iron  reaching to the lofty roof. Huge pipes  lead to it and into it, and through  them with a loud noise rushes the  blast. In front, under a canopy so  arranged as to catch and carry . up a  separate chimney all the fumes,  smoke, steam, etc., stands the slag  pot, a huge egg cup on wheels. Into  this with much hissing pours a molten  stream of slag, sending out showers of  very solid sparks in every direction.  Round it stand the men with long  tamping rods tipped  with   lumps of  Power for the concentrators is supplied by a 150 h. p. Corless engine.  A 85 h. p. Rider engine drives the  blowers and a 30 h.. p. high speed  engine drives the dynamo. Steam is  supplied bp two 200 h. p. boilers. The  whole of this machinery is manufac-  turep by the Chicago Iron Works.  The assay office is under the caie of  Mr. F. Wilson, while Mr. Edward  Kenyon is outside foreman.   ,  THE HLUE UELL MINE.    '  From Pilot Bay to the Blue Bell  mine is a pleasant trip of nine' iuiles  up the lake. The Blue Bell mine itself  occupies t he greater part of a rocky bluff  which here projects.into the lakel It  is so well known that a description is  scarcely necessary. Suffice it to say  that it is the oldest discovery in the1  district. Years before mining was  thought of in this part of the country  Hudson's Bay trappers dug out lead  with which to make bullets and the  remains of an ancient Mexican furnace  that was used by them are to be seen  today hard by the present works.  Before the Hudson's Bay people the  Indian had learnt where to find rock  that made bullets ahd it was probably  from him that the white man first  learnt the secret of Kootenay's treasures. The works consist of a tunnel  only a few yards from the waters edge,  leading in altogether for 1,2���������J feet aud  affording access to various stopes,  upraises, crosscuts and other facilities  for getting ore, which abounds everywhere. Not content with the large  output that can be obtained at these  points the company, under Mr. H.  Stevenson's management, has opened  up a great open cut at the- top of the  hill, immediately above, the underground workings. This cut, which is  somewhat of a horseshoe shape, ex-  hibitsenormousdepusits of carbonates  many feet in width, turning into clean  galena as they descend. The spoil  from this cut, at which a very large  number of men can be put to work at  once, is shot down a shaft leading to  the tunnel below, whence it is conveyed to the bins at the wharf. The  facilities for working the mine may be  gauged by thc fact that the outputfor  January and February was 5,-59 tons',  an amount equal to one half of all t he  rest of Kootenay put. together for the  last six months.. The vein of ore is  continuous throughout the peninsula.  It is a striking object in the bare water  worn rocks at the southern end and it  has been traced continuously from  there through the Blue Bell and other  of the company's claims to the Arcade,  a claim also belonging to the company,  a total distance of 5,703 feet���������considerably over a mile. It could practically  be worked at any point in that distance as it is low. down and close, to  the water, in fact running' parallel  with the shore all along. In other  words its strike is north and south, its  dip westerly.  During his management of the mine  Mr. Stevenson was fortunate enough  to discover iu the main tunnel a very  valuable seam of high grade copper  ore, giving returr-s of from 11 to _6%  of copper, The vein is six feet ten  inches in width. The company rightly prizes this Hud most highly, and a  stack will probably be erected for its  treatment along with . other copper  ores of the district.  . In conclusion we may say that in  spite of the fact that they have only  been running a short time' the" works  exhibit throughout a thorough organization. Theie is no confusion, every  man has his work to do and knows it.  Many familiar faces meet one in going  round and,we were glad to bear Mr-.  Hendryx say that he would r-tflner  employ British Columbians than have  to sendawayinto-his own-country for  meu, and this preference of his is  highly to be commended.  There is an excellent boarding house  owned by the company and let to  Capt. Spaulding, and a resident surgeon, Dr. Eakin, who has seen servic.  iu the LI. S. army, is at hand to attend  to the health of the community.  t The magnitude of the operations of  this company may be gauged by the  fact that at the time of writing there  are 140 men on the payroll and that  the average daily paysheet during the  month of February amounted to $550.

H- had done this as regularly as clock  work every day since the last of March,'  ���������od how it was the middle of Septem-:  bar.-'.. He' threw his mining tools aside  and-straightened up, with a sigh of relief. He was a tall, elderly man, with a  nigged, weather beaten face, in which  ho-hMtyand kindness of heart were not  laoking. He looked the typioal western  miner in his faded red shirt and greasy  ���������krach'hat, with the iron gray beard  that reached almost to his waist  He glanced up at his dug ont on the  hillside, at the sparkling stream at his  feat, at the gigantic peaks, hundreds of  feet'high, which shot in the narrow Dakota ravine on both sides. Then his eyes  strayed down - the gully, where -a tiny  footpath followed the winding course of  tba stream through scrub and timber,  .and -an;'exclamation of wonder burst  from his lips.  A slender figure had suddenly appeared in the path about 60 feet distant, and  a* it came slowly nearer it proved to bo  that Of a lad of 16 or 17. He was empty  handed, and his clothes and shoes were  mnoh the worse for wear. He paused  within "a couple of feet of the miner  and looked at him timidly ont of a pair  of frank brown eyes.  "By the Qreat falls of Missouri!  Where did yon come from, youngster?"  demanded Old Derringer. * "And however did yon find your way here? You're  tha first human creature I've seen in  months. Any more comin behind?" he  added sharply and suspiciously.  "I'm all alone," replied the lad. "1  , was chucked off a Northern- Pacific  freight train back here this morning,  and I followed a sort of a road in this  direction, thinking it would lead me to  a mining camp. I lost it after awhile  and wandered around in the mountains  till I atrnok the path that brought me  here.' If yon can give me some supper  ���������nd a place to sleep, I'll go away in the  morning."  "What's your name?" demanded Old  Derringer. ,  "Tom - Mellish," was. the hesitating  reply.  "I'm from the east."  "It ain't bard to see that, yonng tenderfoot Got in a scrape and runoff,  ���������br"  "II was sort of that way," the lad  answered sadly. ."I lived in Fennsyl-  vania, and when my parents died a year  ���������go "they didn't leave anything, and 1  oorildn't get a place to work���������yon see,  Un times were so hard. They were going to send me to the poorhouse, and as  I oonldn't stand that I ran away. I had  ��������� little.money, but it's all gone now. I  got here mostly on freight trains."  "And where are yon bound?" asked  the miner.  -. "I thought I'd like to be a sailor and  travel to foreign countries," the lad answered, "but us I wanted to see the west  ftrst I came this way, thinking I might  get 00 ��������� vessel at Portland."  "Well- this here certainly beats me,"  deolwred Old Derringer, and his face  porpled   with    suppressed   laughter.  ���������TiYon-ve got-pluck; ^anyhowrwd-that  counts for a heap. Any relatives livin?"  "1 don't know, sir. I bad an uncle  ���������omewheres, but be may be dead."  Old Derringer contemplated the lad  for ��������� moment And pulled his' beard reflectively. "I'm from the east myself,"  he said, "but I ain't seen it for 20 years.  It breeds good stock, lad; and you're  one of tbemi I like your face, and if  ycrn care about stayin here and chum-  min it with me' you're welcome."  "It's a "bargain," the lad gladly replied. "I'm tired of freight trains and  tramping and of being starved."  A little later the two were eating supper on the hillside, and Old Derringer,  with a trust and confidence that were remarkable for him, was telling his now  chum how he had stumbled ou this lono-  Jy, gold bearing stream and was slowly  gathering a store of precious nuggets  and dust Then be showed him tho dugout, which was a room excavated in the  ' soft part of-the cliff and repaid the toil  upended upon it by its suugness and  1 dryness.  "Besides," the miner explained, "it  won't attract attention if any stray prospectors happen to peep into the valley..  I'm ��������� man what don't like to be meddled with, and 1 reckon that's why I was  called Old Derringer."  Thus Tom Mollish's new life began, ���������  and from the first ho liked it and was  happy and contented. After bis wanderings it was pleasant to have regular and  equare meals and a soft bed every night,  and, as for the work, why, it was a never  ending delight to dig and cradle.the  T'jllow gold that the sides and bed of  the stream yielded.  Tom and Old Derringer were soon  fast friends, and their mutual liking  ripened as the days went by. The miner  no longer suffered from oppressive spells  of loneliness, and he seemed' to regard  the lad as a living representative of the  faraway east, toward which his thoughts  had turned-yearningly of lata Neither  ���������poke much of the past, however, and  the subject was one that they tacitly  avoided. Tbe bag of gold under the  floor of the dugout grew larger and  heavier as October dwindled away, and  at the end of the month a wonderful  thing happened. A stroke of Old Derringer's pick opened a pocket of big  nuggets, and also disclosed a rich vein  of gold that seemed to run deeply into  the aide of the hilL. For three days they  worked ia ������-art of trance, almost for  getting to eat and sleep, and more than  one canvas shot bag was filled with the  precious metal in pure bulk. On the  fourth morning tbe spell was broken by  the discovery that the supply of provisions was completely exhausted.  "There's only ono thing to bo done,"  growled Old Derringer, "and that's a  trip to tho nearest Settlement, which is  a day's journey off. 1 hate to leave at  such a time, but game's scarce hereabouts, and we can't live on that anyway. I reokou I'll start right now, seein  it's party early yet. You ain't afraid  to stay until I como back, youngster?''  "Not 'a-bit of it," replied Tom.  "There's nothing to be afraid of. I'll  just keep on working."  , ' 'That's the way to talk,' * Old Derrin-  ger exclaimed approvingly. "I'd stake  all I've got on your honesty, lad, and  that's why I'm goiu to leavo tho pile of  gold in your caro. I'll try my level best  to get back tomorrow night, but don't  worry, if I ain't on hand. As thero  hasn't been any one along this way since  spring, exceptih yourself, it ain't likely  you'll havo any visitor**.- This is a lonely spot and purty far off the beaten  track. If anybody should happen along,  just keep you eyes open and don't let  'em in the dugout."  A few minutes later Old Derringer  Was striding down the ravine, rifle in  hand, and Tom watched him until be  vanished around a curve in the path.  The lad felt proud of the confidence reposed in him, and a desire to show his  gratitude kept him working hard all  day. long. He did not disturb.the newly  opened vein, which the miner had purposely covered over with * bushes, but  cradled the sand and pebbles from the  bed of the stream.  When he returned to the dugout at  sundown, he had quite a respectable pile  of nuggets. He pnt them into a separate  bag, so that he could show what ho had  done,' and he pnt the bag into the hole  with tho others under the miner's bunk.  Then he ate half of the few crackers and  dried beef that remained and went to  bed. By sunrise the following morning  he was at work again at a spot about  20 yards below the. dugout. He stopped long enough for a lunch at noon  and then went ahead with his cradling.  He had expected the-miner back that  night,"and "he wanted to accomplish as  much as possible:  About an hour before sundown he put  the cradle on a rock,-and was transferring some small nnggetsfrom it to a bag  in his hand, when he heard a stone  splash into the stream some distance behind'him. He glanced down the ravine  and was startled to see two men standing in the path about .0 feet away:  They had evidently been taking an  observation, and the stone dislodged by  one of them had betrayed their presence,  Tom had good cause to feel alarmed, for  the strangers were the most disreputable  looking men he had ever seen. One was  short and dwarfish, the other tall and  stout. Both had bloated faces and black  beards and were roughly dressed. They  carried rifles, but no prospeoting tools  or implements. Tom realized that the  visitors wonld not hesitate to commit  murder of robbery arid had probably  come for the latter purpose. His first  impulse was to make sure of his life by  flight, but on second thought he remembered his duty to Old Derringer  and resolved to do his best to save the  gold. Just how that could be done was  not a matter for present consideration,  though a partial plan came' into his  mind as he stood hesitating. He dropped the cradle, stuffed the bag into his  pocket and started up the ravine.  "Not so fast, kid," came a gruff voice  after him; "hold on thar."  Tom 'quickened his steps aud then  broke into a run. As he clamoered up  . the.hillside a rifle cracked, and the ball  "whistled close over his head. . lie kept  bravely on, aiid a few moro steps brought  him to the little plateau in front of the  dugout He darted inside, and his first  act was to seize Old Derringer's revolver from the shelf behind the bunk.  Then he threw himself flat behind the  upper corner of the doorway. There was  a stone ledge a foot high .in front of  him, and from this point of vantage he  had a slanting view of a good bit of the  lower part of the ravine.  . He felt rather more cheerful now, for  he was in a safe position and could yet  command the only approach to the dugout All the chambers of tho revolver  were loaded, and Old Derringer bad  taught him how to use the weapon. The  men, however,' werd in no hurry to approach. After seeing the lad disappear  in the dugout thoy stood for several minutes in earnest conversation. 'Then they  came very slowly- up the ravine, stopping to look closely about wherever  there wore signs of digging or cradling.  Torn watched them sharply and with  growing uneasiness. Their careless manner showed plainly that they believed  the lad to be alone, and what they saw  along the ravine must have' satisfied  them that the dugout contained. rich  plunder. It was even possible that they  had been waiting this chance for weeks  ahd knew that Old Derringer was absent at the settlement. Closer and closer  they came,' changing their shambling  gait to a brisk, decided tread.' Now  they were nearly opposite . the dugout  ������ud had planted their feet on the path  iiat led up the slope.  "Stop right there, " cried Tom, showing the tip of his nose. "Don't come  any nearer.'" -      .  The men halted, and the larger one  called 6ut:v "We want" to see the boss  of these diggin's.   Where is he?"  "He'll be'here pretty soon," replied  ;T6in, "andl've got orders not to let any  one in till he comes. "  . The meu ' lowered their ��������� rifles from  their shoulders and whispered to each  other for, a moment. Theu they glanced  up toward Tom in a very threatening  manner. "It's no uso to fool any longer,  kid," said the dwarfish man. "We want  your gold, aud, what's more, we'regoin  ter have it. If you fork over decent,  we'll give you a share and let you go; if  you don't, we'll take it anyways and  slit your throat in the bargain."  ������"I'll shoot you if you try to come up  here," Tom answered pluckily, but the  < lol  4^  dM  A new Railway under Construction.

What happened noxt Tom  could never remember very clearly, for  he was pretty badly excited at this trying moment. He did not want to shed  blood, and be had a vaguo hope of scaring the men back by shooting over their  heads as he leveled the revolver with  that intention.  Three times he snapped the trigger in  rapid succession, and two of the reports  failed to oheck the ruffians. At the third  shot the little man clasped a hand to his  right arm with a yell of pain and spun  around. He fell against his companion,  knocking him off bis feet, and both rolled together to the foot of the slope.  They were up instantly, and Tom wisely ducked his head behind the stone.  He heard half a dozen rifle shots, and  the bulls passed over him. nnd flattened  Igaiust the wall of the dugout. Thou  all-was quiet, and when he ventured to  peep out lie could faintly see the ruffians  moving down the ravine. In a moment  they were hidden by the dusky twilight.  The. situation was now a perplexing  one. Night was at hand, and the men  would certainly make an attempt to get  tho gold tinder cover of darkness. It was  doubtful if Old Derringer would be back  before the next day, and his timely return was not to be depended upon. Tom  pondered deeply as -lie' lay at his post,  keeping eyes and ears on tho alert for  his foes. Ho did not dare to light a fire,  for that would have exposed, him to certain death. After waiting half an hour  without detecting any danger it flashed  upon him that the ruffians probably  hoped he would fall asleep after a time  from a sense of false security and were  deferring their approach until then. He  felt so sure of this that he conceived a  plan to take as much of tho gold as he  could carry, hide the rest and theu es-  oape to tbe upper part of the ravine.  Once safely away from the dugout he  could easily hide until the miner's return.  He set about bis preparations without  delay. Quickly and quietly he filled,a  large bag with the precious metal and  hid what.was left under the embers of  the fireplace, carefully raking the ashes  over the "spot again.- He purposely left  th'e hole under the bunk uncovered, so  that the ruffians would be sure to see  that the treasure was gone.  Now he was ready, and after standing in a listening attitude for a few seconds he crept to the entrance of the dugout,- the revolver held in one hand and  the bag of gold in the other. He was  barely outside when he heard a scraping  noise straight overhead, and quickly two dark figures dropped lightly behind him. The tricky ruffians had mado  a detour above the dugout and crept  down over the rocky hillside that formed its roof. No doubt it was their intention torush"in"and_overpbwer^th"e"_l_(l  before he could shoot them, and had  they dropped a moment sooner they  might have been successful. But Tom  discovered them before they saw him.  and instantly he went plunging down  the slope at full speed. As the coast was  now clear, he'' turned southward- along  the narrow path, hearing shouts and  rapid strides behind him.  He ran faster aiid faster through the  night, sticking to the path by blind instinct and intont only on escaping with  the gold. Suddenly he felt slippery  rooks under his feet and knew that ho  had blundered astray.' Then a riflo  cracked, and at the same instant ho fell  forward. He felt a stinging pain along  his head, a storming blow over ono eye,  and after that he remembered nothing.-  When Tom canio back to consciousness, he was lying on Old Derringer's  bimk in tho dugout, and the miner himself was. sitting near him on a stool.  The sun was shining in the doorway,  and the kettle was boiling over tho. fire.  He suddenly remembered all that had  .happened, and ho tried to sit up in spite  of his weakness and headacho. ���������������������������  "Lie still, youngster," said Old Derringer in a strangely tender tone.  "You'll be all right after a bit."    -  "The gold!", cried Tom. "Have you  got it?"  "Every nugget," the miner replied.  "The bag was in your hand, and I seen  the rest peepin from the ashes."  "But-how did -1 get here, and what  became of the robbers?"  ." "I reckon I shot ono," answered Old  Derringer. "Leastwise there was blood  on tho stones. You see I come along just  as they fired at you, and then they hustled up the gorge as quick as they could  go. The ball only nipped your head, but  you had an ugly knock from tumblin on  the rocks.- I. carried you up here, and  . all night long you kept talkin wildlike  about gold and robbers and���������and about  your home at Carlisle, away off in Pennsylvania. That was my home, - too,  youngster. Say, if you. don't mind, is  , Mellish your real name?"  "No," said Tom. "My real name is  Woodruff."  Old Derringer turned pala "Not thc  son of John Woodruff?"  "He was my father," Tom answered.  : The next instant Old Derringer was  kneeling by the buuk and had his arms  around the amazed lad "I'm your Un-  ole Jim," ho,criedhoarsely, "what run  ���������way ������sqn_ homo 20 years ajjo,   John  Woodruff was my brothor.

Wo'll take a trip together. "  Old Derringer stopped for want of  breath, and presently he and Tom discussed more calmly the wonderful things  that had happened. It was better than  medicines for the lad, and by evening  he was on his feet, as sound and well as  ever.  A few days later the two were traveling east as fast as steam could carry  them, and Tom know that his days of  tramping and privation were over.- In  the strangely discovered relative he had  found a lifelong friend aud protector. ���������  William Murray Graydon in Philadelphia Press,  Effect of ..nvirohiiieiit on h Watch. -  "It is .urions to notice the effect of  certain atmospheres upon timepieces of  a certain kind," said A. G. Graham of  Chicago. "I have a watch of the old  fashioned type, which I always carry  with ��������� me wherever. I go, first,' because  it's, a curiosity, and, secondly, because  it is a gift from a much beloved ftiond.  Well, this watch has a habit of running  ahead of time. Iii my own city, or here  in St. Louis, for example, it gains five  minutes in every 24 hours. This'is noticeable because it moans nearly two  hours a month.' 1 have a way of letting  it run for a longth of time, say six  months, so that it regulates itself practically in that time. It manages to make  about 13 hours, and when a timepiece  is that much ahead of or behind time it  is just as good as if it were perfect. A  short while ago I was compelled to visit  Philadelphia, from which city I am just  returning. During my stay there tbe  watch lost five, minutes a day, and tho  loss was as regular as - the gain was in  Chicago or in your city.: I have a theory  upon the subject.  "I believe that the movements of a  man have moro or less effect' upon a  watch. Now, almost every man readily  falls into the ways and gait of his fellows. In Chicago or in St. Louis every  man likes to be fivo minutes ahead of  time. In Philadelphia every ono says:  'Well, there's no hurry. Five minutes  behind time will make no difference,'  and from this follows that slow, easy  gait which is the most striking characteristic of the Quaker City. It would  seem the watches keep time in the same  fashion, as if in sympathy with their  owners. So you see there is pretty good  reason for the allegation with regard to  Philadelphia's proverbial slowness."���������  St Louis Globe-Democrat   ^Mairio-Inrludter   ~.  Some recent travelers who have seen  the magicians of India reported that tbe  skill of these jugglers has been overrated, and that their tricks are really  less wonderful than they have been said  to be. But Mr. Kell'ar, who is himself  a slight of hand expert, thinks differently. He.says that the Hindoo wizards  perform tricks that ho can neither duplicate nor understand, so marvelous are  they. This is what ho relates of one  whom he saw at the Chuddermnnzil  club at Lucknow:  "He took a board and placed it on  four glass goblets, thus elevating it from  the floor. A youngster sitting on the  board was requested to placo his haw's  together, palms up. Then the juggler  took a glass of water and poured it into  the outstretched bauds of tho hoy. In  the meantime the boy had been mesmerized, and his attention was fixed on  a point indicated by tho magician.  Gradually the water turned green in color and then developed into a jelly which  increased in density until it bocame'as  solid as a stone. Out of, the center of  this appeared thohead-of a snake, which  gradually developed until in the place  of the water. there appeared a hissing  reptile. I was amazed, I can assure yon,  but the trick was not yet completed.  Hitting the reptile upon the head with  -his wand, the juggler* took it up carefully and placed it back into the glass. As  we looked it became transformed into a  jelly, which in turn melted into a greenish colored water. Clearer and clearer  became the fluid until it was of itsorigi-.  nal color, and then tho juggler placed it  to his lips and drank the entire contents.  This was the most wonderful trick I ever  saw performed, and it is as mysterious  to me today as it was then."���������New  York Advertiser.-  Goods .ought right out; no eom-  inlM-OB eharged.  - X*alr selection; Immediate returns.  ���������hipping taira famished free upon  request. -j'  These ia YO BUTT on fur��������� or any  other goods -we handle.

THE MINER, NELSON, B.; C, SATURDAY,: MARCH- t6rrv8cf5.  %\xt^\xnttf  no������r there are to be found people who  are1 not content, who will scarcely  believe their eyesand'apparently do  not vise their reasoning powers. These  ask "Will they.be able to get enough  ore to keep her running." The Slocan  Mountains, across the lake, with their  ribs'of silver.'and-lead are'a silent  answer to this *-question. It. does, not  appear, reasonable that hard headed,,  shrewd Americans, business men of  the brightest kind, would spend their,  thousands in kindling such a fire if  they did not know where' the fuel was  corning from to keep it going. : Nor  does if seem difficult to dispel any  doubts upon this question. Divided  only from the smelter by a few miles  of calm, deep water are many mines  containing ores that will not bear the  expense of a journey to the smelters  of the United States, but which will  bring fortunes to their owners if once  .he cost of transportation can be  avoided. Here* is their opportunity.  And let us say* here, that depending,  as they must, largely do, upon these  ores! does it seem a likely proposition  that the smelter company will want to  keep all the profit arising from that  .aving of- transportation, to itself.  That-would be killing the goose,that  lays the golden (or silver) eggs. If  they divide it with the mine owners,  both will-benefit.  If" the' saving of transportation  charges is everything to the owners'of  low grade ores it is also, a- saving of so  many dollars a ton to the owners of  high grade ores, .  In this argument we have left out  the fact that the company owns vast  deposits of ore itself, which it is possible they may be able to work at a  profit themselves, but that is their own  affair.  On the whole - the country has  reason to - congratulate itself on the  establishment of such a concern in its  ruidst and we believe it to be a step  upwards in the ladder of our prosperity and'a long step too.

The starting of the smelter at Pilot  Bay marks an era in the history of the  Kootenay mining district. It is typical of the development of the country.  The district.generally is one of the  roughest in North America, and until  railways were constructed .and'steamboats took advantage of its magnificent waterways it was practically  inaccessible. Three railways now tap  it; the C. P. R. to the north, the Great  Northern and the Nelson and Spokane  line to the south. It is no longer shut  off. A New Yorker can get to Kootenay us easily as he can to Paris. But  this was not done in a day. The prospector's tales of the El Dorado lying  in the heart of those rugged-mountains required very .emphatic confirmation before millions could be  induced to aid the country's development. The history of the Pilot Bay  smelter could probably tell a similar  story.   It is not, however, the province  . of a newspaper to enter into the personal history of a private * company.  Suffice it to say that for years it has  hung Are, today its furnace is producing ingots of silver lead." It i=* a  sign that the country is going ahead,  that its great natural wealth is forcing  itself into the markets of the world  and it is a sign that appeals-in large  letters to the.investors of England and  Anieri-u.  Ever' since A. B. Hendryx and  Joshua Davies came in last July the  shores ofthe lake- have echoed with  the question, "Are they going on with  the smelter really or is it only a fake  to s������������ll the township lots?" Wh^n  they got, to work it began to appeui  that reasonable men would hardly,  spend hundreds of thousand's of dollars  to boom'a little live thousand dollar  townsite. So the doubter Had to take  up another cry. "Had the company  energy and talent enough to successfully start the works?" An acquaintance with Mb! A. B. Hendryx  answered the first of- these, the men  he has in charge of the various departments are answers to the "other, and  tlie filial- completion and "successful  starting of   the whole concern  have  o pretty. well    disposed   of   all    th'-se  -   -doubters.. and    cavillers But   even  to whether or not the Dominion government was'under-the thumb of the C. P.  B. or Dot. The speaker said that; he  wished to declare, that the C. P. B. is not  tbe master of the Dominion government,  and that there never has been a cabinet  more thoroughly independent of . that  corporation than is the present one. In  support of the statement lie instanced the  circumstances connected with the application made last session for assistance  to the British Columbia Southern railway intended to run through the Crow's  Nest .pass and to bring coal and coke into the raining regions of Kootcnny, at  such rates that the price of the fuel there  would be $G or $7 a ton instead of $15 or  816 as at present. The C.'P. K. opposed  the scheme us strongly as they could,  using every effort to show that the road  could not possibly be built because of  the expense involved, and belittling, the  value of coal. The fight was carried before the cabinet, and the late Sib John  Thompson- sent for him (Mn. Pkiob) and  asked what offer the B. C. Southern party  had made to the C. P. B. as to the terras  upon which both could use' the pass.  When he stated the terms Sib John  Thompson replied with emphasis that if  the C. P. B. would not come to an agreement within three, months they might go  to the mischief.  ;  The gist of all this lies in the last sentence, to which may be added the-following information. The promise or threat  of Sir John Thompson's was made in  May last and nothing has been done.  The provincial government by a Minute  in Council demanded the attention of  the Dominion government to the need of  settling this matter, and to the readiness  of the B. C. Southern to build itself if it  could not come to terms with the C P. "R.  This Minute bus as yet not been answered from Ottawa and the C. P. II.. will  doubtless plead that it will take them too  long to get ready to begin ��������� this year.:  Thus they will be able to pursue their  dog in the manger policy :of .holding the  country in their own hands, doing nothing and keeping other folk out. The three  instances of this course of conduct  at .present are, the defeat of, the Bed  Mountain Railway Bill, the blocking of  the Nelson k Fort Sheppard Railway at.  the outskirts of Nelson, and choking the  B. C. S. out of the Crow Nest Pass. AVe  shall be only too glad to have to announce  that these delays are ouly temporary and  have been removed.' Meanwhile it appears to us that Col. Ppior. has failed to  make out a case in favour of the'independence of the Dominion government..'.,���������   ,  and the system,-as we know it here in  the west, is'the worst we have met in  any part1 of the world. The public  have a right not only to have a better  system altogether, but to have the  present system'and its extortionate  charges bettered in every way.  The rebellion (apparently successful)  of the students of the Toronto University is typical of Newer 'Britain, In  the old country such an incident would  be impossible. At Oxford or Cambridge the moral force of the Head and  his Dons would at once quell any such  rising and the rioters would be sent  down to cool, their agitated heads in  secluded rustication. It would not  matter a pin whether their cause was  a just one or not. Boys of a somewhat  more tender age would be brought to  reason with that wholesome instrument, the birch. "With all due deference to the' students of the Toronto  University (and all other Universities)  we must confess that we hanker after  the older style. We believe it better  for these veiy young men to be under  an unbreakable mural control, even if  it sometimes works an injustice, than  to allow them to have any say at all  in the matter of their government.  They are not at an age when they can  discriminate between what is right  and what is wrong and they are more  likely to be carried away by the impulse of the moment than their eldei s  are.

No better evidence of the importance  ofthe Kootenay .countryajs a miuing  district could be afforded than by the  eagertiess*-of' different' railways"'to  make it accessible ���������'to their systems.  Up ti> this year the output of ore has  has not been in it-self sufficient ,to  attract railway kings, hut they must  see in the future visions of freight  with sufficient distinctness to warrant  them iu building lines that at first can  but pay expenses. ' As one line pushes  its way further into the country and  taps one or more mining centres, the  other lines have to make counter  moves in order to check the advance  of their rival or suffer him to have the  field to himself. ��������� We have it on good  authority that in order to check the  advances of the Kaslo-Slocan Railway,  whichno more intendsto stopat- San-f  don than at Bear. Lake, the C. P; R.  will push its Nakusp & Slocan branch  on thiough New Denver and Silverton  down the eastern shore of the Slocan  lake and river and join the Nelson-  Robson line at the Slocan Crossing.  This line has been talked of for some  time and we have every, reason to  believe that the present year will see  some part of it pushed forward.  NOTES AND COMMENTS-  The London Mining Journal prints  the larger part of an article from The  Miner setting forth the prospects of  prosperity which have been ushered  in with the year 1805. A good deal of  the article quoted relates to the Trail  Creek camp, and we are glad to see  that this is quoted at length. It is our  constant endeavour tri set forth and  give prominence to facts which will  have the effect of attracting attention  to Kootenay. In a comment on our  remarks The Mining Journal, says:  "We have ever sought the opportunity  of drawing attention to the richness of  this (Kootenay) country, and we have  reiterated our opinion that it is worthy  the attention of the capitalist and  investor."-'  In a paragraph last week on the subject of the C. P. R. telegraph system  and press messages we said' "this message was put into French to prevent  leakage, a complaint from which telegraphists suffer too much." The local  operator, unmindful of the old "motto,  appears to have taken this remark as  referring to himself and we have been  taken to task accordingly. Now we  do not intend to recede one inch from  what we have said. Newspaper men  all over the world know.only too well  of this leakage and" many are the  dodges resorted to to conceal the real  meaning of an important telegram.  We ourselves have spent many a  weary hour attempting to decipher  some .conundrum sent from a correspondent, clear enough probably to  ninu, but a hopeless muddle toany one  not having the clue; Our remarks  were general and did not (nor -were  they intended to) refer to any one in  particular.  While we are on this subject, let it  be clearly understood that we' claim  and intend to stand by the right of  the press to guard the public interest  in every way. We believe, that the  system of having the telegraphs of the  country under the control of a private  company to be a thoroughly bad one  We have received a copy of the  Rossland Miner which, except for the  title, differs in no respect from its  previous existences as the Kaslo Times  and Slocan Times. Transmigration of  souls is evidently possible to newspapers. This journal for instance  might well be. called the Kootenay  Transmigtator By and by when  things come to an end, when the Last  Trump sends its summoning echoes  into all the coiners of the earth, our  friend the editor of the Transinigralo.  will no doubt be seen "packing" his  press along in order to set it up in his  next location, where snowslides trouble  not and ice is worth $5,000 an ounce. _  We are quite sensible of the compliment done us in naming the new paper  after ourselves. It is a tribute to our  popularity. At the same time we  must ask our friends to bear iii mind  that the new paper in speaking of  itself drops the word "Rossland," and  both in its columns and in .hat of our  contemporary here it is referred to as  "The Miner," which it most undoubtedly is uot and never will be.-'  The Blnietallext HcnoIihIoi. In tbe Hou������e  of Commons.  We suppose that the government succumbed to-weariness and despair If Sir  William Vernon Harcourt could have  been sure of obtaining-a majority it is  impossible that he could have accepted  the motion as harmless and colorless. It  will assuredly be believed, both at home  aud abroad, despite .Sir William's earnest  declaimer, that when Great Britain professes her readiness to enter a conference  it is with tbe intention, it an agreement  be reached, of effecting some changes in  our curreucy.. We do not believe that  such an agreement will be reached or  that the present or any -succeeding government will send delegates to a������ conference pledged to adopt a bimetallic solution, but the bimetallic agitation will be  quickened both liere aud abroad. Disorder aud depression will be augmented  by a prolongation'of the period of uncertainty. We caunot profess to be  satisfied with the acceptance of the motion by the House of Commons. The  bimetuliists are entitled to .plume themselves ou a success which needed all. Mr.  C-fladstoue's personal influence backed by  a stable majority, to prevent them obtaining two years ago. We have the  greatest doubt as to whether, even if  Great Britain were excluded, any agreement on a fixed ratio is possible.���������London  Times.  The adoption of the resolution cannot  be regarded as indicating any change of  opinionon- the part-of the" preseu t"British"  cabinet upon the question of the desirability of a bimetallic arrangement, but  the fact of its passage, taken in connection with Sir William Harcourt's treatment of the whole matter, seems to show  that the cabinet feels itself to be in a  decidedly weak position.��������� Bradstreets.

The somewhat unexpected action of  the British Parliament and the German  Reichstag in approving of a "new international monetary conference has not  aroused any real belef that a settlement  of the question upon bimetallic lines is  possible or probable. The situation,  however, .has aroused fresh interest iu  the mntter, and it would seem that the  action of the legislative bodies in questiou  has been influenced to a certain extent by  the fear of investors that the present  policy has not been altogether successful,  and does not assure that degree of protection to their interests which they had  been led to expect,���������Bradstreets.

The passen ���������  were" safely landed.  Lord Rosebery has had such a severe  attack of iniluenza that.his doctors have  ordered him away at once to the south of  France for rest and change.

Nellie Neustretter, whose name has beeu  mentioned in connection with the divorce  proceedings, inhabits a villa at Monte  Carlo. .  A dispatch from St. Petersburg says  that the issuance of the edict1 abolishing  the use of the knout is due to the fact  that statistics were submitted tp the  Czar which showed that within the last  ten years three thousand persons convicted of. petty thefts have died from  the effects of the knout.  The Freeman's Journal believes that  the new Irish land bill contains provisions of vast utility, to tbe tenantry  of Ireland. The Independent (Parnel-  lite) says the voluntary agreement in the  bill regarding eviction is a shameful submission to landlords.. The Unionist  (Northern Whig) accepts the bill aa a fair  and reasonable measure.  The British and American subjects  who were sentenced to death iii Honolulu  will not be executed. Referring to this  subject the London Daily Chronicle says:  "The sentences which the handful of  adventurers now running Hawaii passed  upon those who ventured to stand up for  the dethroned Queen are so grotesque  that they cannot be allowed to stand."  Thomas A. Jones, made famous during  the troublous times immediately following the assassination of President Lincoln, died in Baltimore at his home near  LaPlanta, Charles county. Jonessecreted  John Wilkes Booth on his premises after  his flight from Washington, and kept  him hidden from the. officers for seven  days. Fearing that his guest would be  discovered, Jones placed Booth and  Harold on a mule and led the animal  seven miles to the Potomac river, where  he procured a yawl boat in which they  reached the Virginia "'shore and made  their escape. Jones was subsequently  arrested and tried in Washington for his  "1_onnection"witlrBo6th's"flight7"biit Vis  acquitted.   He was 74 years old.  A Horseman'* Get up, 1002.
