There is some talk ���������of proposing to incorporate the town ������'as a municipality.  This has arisen because of the absolute  necessity of doing something about  water.

To-day The Miner is five years old,  the eldest of all the journalistic child-  . ren of Kootenay. Like other children  she has grown and is now about twice  her original size, having had an intermediate stage. Growth depends on  good food. The food of newspapers is  public patronage. That is coming out'  way. and we hope to deserve it so that  if a little more comes we shall be able  to growstill another page oi two.  - We do not make this announcement  in rhe hope of being asked to take a  drink. But our friends who are con-  vivially inclined will show their good  -will by adding th'emselves to our list  - of subscribers.  . NEW DENVER.    .  It. ������. Kerr has gone to the Coast for a  holiday..  A^ar load of ore from the Eureka is  going out via Kaslo.  The receipts at the New Denver record  office for July amounted to over $2,000.  The Ledge reports that Slocan City,is  booming, and that business lots there  are selling at $75 for corners nnd $50 for  iusides.  Dr. Browse is fitting up the Din groan  building on Sixth Street,New Denver, for  a hospital. It will have accommodation  for 20 patients.  Mining operations are being renewed.  S. S. Bailey has started work on the  Payne group. The Surprise and Antoine  will be worked as soon as the water is'out  of the tunrels.  George Hughes obtained an assay from  rock from the Best, a claim on Seaton  Creek, showing 000 ounces of stiver  aud 16 per cent, copper.  > The owners of the mines in the Dardanelles, Great Western and adjoining  basins are petitioning the government for  a road to join the Kaslo-Slocan Railway  at McGuigan Creek. -  ���������Toaccommodatethe"many'visitors ~to  the foot of the lake Sam AVhitaker intends to open, ihe hotel at that point  formerly ruu by Tom Mulvey, and has  applied for a liquor license.  The Jenny Lind, - adjoining the Read &  Kobertson on Four Mile Creek, has been,  bonded to some Spokane parties. Mr.  Wilson, of Three Forks, acting as pur.  chasers' agent, but the bond is not yet  on record and price cannot be'stated  with authority.  Harry Sherar nnd the ownt-rs of the  Kalispell have secured some good ground  and have men at work developing. Nate  Tucker and his partners areulso opening  up the Lilly and a recent location seven  'miles up Springer Creek and which has a  good ledge, carrying very rich ore.  About 75 per cent, of the claims recorded in this district are staked on  Lemon and Springer Creeks and some  exceptionally high assays have beeu obtained from rock coming from these  creeks. Undoubtedly many * of these  claims are staked ou the merest suspicion  of mineral, but several are liable to turn  out valuable properties.  , ��������� AINSWOIlTH.  Mrs. Shaw, the wife of Mr. McVicar's  partner died only a day or two after her  husband's return' to the east and Mr.  Shaw himself is now lying at his house  dtingerously ill with fever.   *'  Shipments from the No. lmine will.be  delayed fDr some little time' in consequence of the damage to the road by  forest fires. Many bridges are burned  and in places where the road was built on  crib work it is entirely destroyed. Altogether about two miles will have to be  rebuilt.      ,  At one" time the concentrator and'  buildings at No. 1 were in danger, but1  the fire was beaten off. The only fear at  present is that the fire -will creep along  up and behind the mine and cut off the  water supplyj  , NEWS OF THE WORLD.  who visit Vancouv '.e������* at this timi .  the year from all pa.

(Continued from last week.)'  '      The best known and most largely developed of all the mines of this district i.  the Slocan Star, situated on Sandon Creek.   High up above th������creJthe1^  outcrops and then dips into the mountain at an antichn al. to the.surface.; Four  tunnels at different elevations tap and out the vein.   The upper tunnel w 70 feet  in length and cuts the vein 70 feet from the outcrop.   It thus forma the baaeoi an  isosceles triangle of which the vein itself and the surface arethe two sides -No.*  tunnel is 45 feet vertically below No. 1, and No. 3 is 135 feet below No. 2, while No.  4 is 425 feet below No. 1.   These tunnels are all connected by winzes and upraises,  and many feet of drifting along the vein has been cut.   The vein at No. 31������ over  50 feet thick, of which the first 10 or 12 feet are first class ore requiring oulj to be  bagged and shipped straight to the smelters.   The assay value of   his ore.,^8 125  ounces of silver and 74 per cent, of lead to the ton.   The amount of ore in sight������  enormous.   For the 12 months ending May 81st last 2,800 tons from this w*���������*  shipped, of.which 2,500 tons went to the Omaha and Grant smelters and 300 tons  to Tacoma.   This ore had to be hauled down on sleighs to the terminus ot the ml-  way at Three Forks, a distance of some 5 or 6 mile..   This ye"^W^"^  the Kaslo Railway will bring the cars close under the mine itself and with such in-  creased facilities the shipments will be much larger.  which actually ship ore are the Alamo, the Idaho and  1  ,    The body  "the Ainsworth  WtfH!'*-  \(V .in,  These are not picked. specimens,,but  samples chosen mostly at hazard by  our special correspondent from the  claims he passed through. The Le Roi  specimen was picked off the dump,  and that of the War. Eagle ore was  taken out of a wagon passed on the  road to Trail.  In our endeavours to advertise the  district we have been much aided by  many mine owners. Some who are  complete strangers to us in giving us  information for our pamphlet, which  will make its appearance in a few  days, have gone out of their way to  thank us for "what we are doing for  -the-country.���������We-may��������� say��������� that-we-  have exceptional opportunities.of getting the facts about the Kootenay  published far and wide. We have ou  our staff journalists connected with  newspapers in different parts .of the  world. Not the least of these is the  British Trade Journal, which is published simultaneously in seven different  languages iu seven different parts of  the world. A recent edition contains  an article on Kootenay. by a member  of our staff which is likely to attract  very considerable attention. . Tlie Imperial Institute Gazette of London has  another by the same .pen and we  know of one or two others likely to  make their appearance before long.  In order to aid us in the work we  would ask everyone connected with or  interested in Kootenay to give us all  the assistance in their power, hy keeping us informed of mining news of  interest such as bonds, new striki-s,  ore shipments, smelter returns anil the  like. We would point, out j too, that  for remuneration we rely almost en-.  tirely on local support. If our scheme  is approved by the public, roll up boys  and support the paper that is working  hard to help you all.  \ Winer .named    _.

They  were quite out of grub and had to find  their way down the river the best way  they could, as they were unable to,,attract the notice of any of the passing  steamers..

No instructions have as yet been received  about Waneta,   Rykerts or Rossland.  A collision occurred on Wednesday  between the steamers Alberta and  Ainsworth by which the engine beam  of the latter was broken. As this necessitates a larger piece of timber to  repair it than there is at present in  Kaslo, a special log has to be cutout,  which -will take some little time.

The Prospector has apparently worked out its claim at Kaslo and h;is gone  with the rest of the world to Rowland.  Mr. Pratt does not think well of the  Kaslo claim and having stbandoned it  Mr. Lowery has ie-staked it. Mr..  Lowery is a man who do-*s not believe  in chalices and so to inaVe certain he  is going to bring his Ledge with him  and work it for all it. is Worth.

The annual picnic under the auspice.;--  of the "Union Sabbath school was  held'  "sis   announced   at   Squires   point    on  Wednesday     last.   . The      somewhat  meagre attendance is explained by the-  fact that illness is just  now  prevalent  to some extent  among the   children,  At three o'clock   the Stiv Nelson  left,  the-town   wharf   and   conveyed    theparty- to the picnic grounds.    Here the-  games- etc were soon in full swing and  everybody was engaged uiit.il the time-  ford e part nre  in  extracting as  much,  pleasure as possible from the occasion.  At-ibout 8 o'clock the return trip  was:  beg-un in row boats, the whole party arriving at home in safety a,n.d all agreeing that the picnic was a  decided success.

" "  - Speaking of the new discoveries at the south end of Slocan Lake, the same  dooimcut says : On Eight Mile and Ten Mile Creeks numerous discoveries were  made this summer (1804). The Kalispell, on Ten Mile Creek, is the most promising  The locators are at work and have 7 tous of oro averaging between 400 and 500  ounces of silver to the ton.  The capital of the Slocan is "New Denver, a little town most picturesquely ���������  situated on the east side of Slocan.Lake at the mouth of Carpenter Creek. Five  miles tip tlie creek where its three branches join is Three Forks, and still further up  the South Fork is Sandon, for the present thc terminus 'of the Kaslo Railway. North  of New Denver on the Lake is Rosebery,- a new village of inconsiderable proportions. At the south end of the Lake (ou the maps) is Slocau City. In consequence  of t*b. remarkable finds in this vicinity the town is apparently materializing and lots  therein have actually been sold for hard cash. From the Slocan Lake an excellent  trail leads down the left bank of tbe river to its junction with the Kootenay. It is  expected that before long the C. P. R. will build up this river from its Nelson and  Robson line. ' -  TRAIL CBEEK.  Many years ago the old Hudson's Bay trail connecting Eastern Kootenay with.  the rest of "British Columbia, crossed the Columbia River about 20 miles north of  i the International boundary and going westwards .led up to the divide by means of-  1 an easv canyon.   The stream at its bottom became known as Trail Creek.   The'old  i trappers anil hunters who. frequented this route could not hear iu the murmur of the  little brook the word irold, aud for years their-mocassins patiently trod ground that  is almost un purchasable to-day.   About seven miles up tbe creek is Red Mountain  ;uud here five or six years ago the  first claims  were staked.   For one reason or au-  ���������other thi _* attracted no notice until the  autumn of 1894.   The ore is of a refractory  ���������natureanil five years"ago its treatment was  a. problem not   quite removed from the  'experimental stage.   While ore of various kinds, including both free milling quartz  ���������and galena, is found iu  the mines of   Trail, its typical product is a pyritic'iron,  ���������carrying gold and copper.    About November,  1894, mining matters in the Western.  ���������States and throughout   British Columbia being flat the wave of public attention  rolled towards Trail Creek.   Its   two" chief   properties, the Le Itoi and ������the War  ���������Easle, were acquired by syndicates composed of keen American mining men, the  owners of the townsite of Rossland put their wares on the market, the journalist  hungering for novelty sent the magic word "gold" from end to end of the States aud  iii U months 2,000 people swarm at Rossland and in its neighborhood.    Hundreds'of  claims are staked in every direction aud mauy" new finds of valuable mineral have  been discovered.   No sooner are   specimens of ore from these exhibited than they  are bonded.   Not long ago a bond of 875,000 on  a group of claims was regarded as  :a high figure.   Recentlv we have heard of a group being held under the unprece-  1 dented figure of 5200,000.  Por the information of our   foreign   readers we may   mention that bonding a  claim consists in undertaking to pay a certain sum for it at a future time or times,  a small amount in cash, rarely exceeding 5 per cent, of the whole, being paid dowu  . *to "bind tfce bargain.        , - *       -  il (To be Continued.) THE MINER NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, AUGUST  I  "    "    INHUMANITY  OF THE  LAW.  An -Englishman Driven to Death bx Harsh  Legal 3IachinciT.  I make no apology for giving prominence above events of so called importance to a simple littlo story, Which I  have no doubt will arouse emotions in  American hearts that it.has.failed to excite in this country.' Its significance indeed lies in tho fact, that it formed the  subject of a small newspaper paragraph  hero without attr-icting any public interest. It is merely a record of tho operation of tho ii.e-.orablo machinery of  tho English law as applied to an obscuro  individual named Henry Grainger, living in Sunderland.  Mr. Grainger had a largo family and  had been ont of work for several mouths.  Privation had  undermined his health,  and tho housoholri.-bad become destitute.  -   Then tho law stopped in and summoned  the unfortunate lather beforo a magistrate for failing  to sond his children to  School. ��������� Ho pleaded that ho was unablo  to clotho  and feed  thorn  so that they  could appoar in public.  Tho wiso judge  ordered tho father to pay a lino of a few  shillings.   The unhappy man explained  that he had not a penny.  Outraged law  committed him . to the county jail for  three days.    Ho was duly convoyed to  ' prison at Durham, and when his term  had expired was turned, penniless and  infirm,   into  tbe   bitter cold,   driving  storm. He tried to walk to his home, 14  miles away, managed to get half the  distance and then crawled at night into  an empty liinokiln  for shelter.   Somebody happened to find him there in the  morning half frozen and almost dead.  The law again supplied him with a con-  ' veyance to the workhouse and probably  '���������would have done more for him but he  ���������was nngrateful enough to die as soon as  he reached  its sheltering doors.   His  death had been rather irregular, so the  law furnished  a jury which  carefully  considered his fate.  If there had been the slightest legal  responsibility for his death on the part  of any  person  or authority the  jury  would not have failed to express its con ���������  denination, for English coroners' juries  are always severe in dealing with* any  illegality.    It is quite plain  that not a  whit of legal blame attached to anybody,  so  the verdict was, "Death  from  ex-  posure."   That is all, save perhaps tbat  next week, if tbe hungry orphans still  fail to attend  school, the law may step  In and deal  precisely in the same way  with Grainger's widow. Thus does England maintain  hor proud position  in  the van  of educated nations.   She still  holds meetings which  denounce  with  self righteous indignation the  lawless  treatment  of murderers by  American  mobs.    No protest has  yet becn'heard  against such tortures and tragedies as I  have described, and  which tho law of  England approves, if it does not prescribe. ���������New York Sun's London Letter.  -895  Tlie Glory of Tree*.  The national pride of America In Its  giant  trees  is  woll   founded.    If   the  giants of our own woods appeal to us as  an embodiment ..of magnificence, what  must bo tho impression created  by this  hall of columns, in which  each  equals  in height  tho spiro 'of a cathedral and  has stood through' ages of whoso duration tho years of  tho oak are an inconsiderable   fraction?    These   California  giants lack one element of impressive-  ness.    They have no associations other  than thoso which their size con jrires up.  Human   fancy  has iiover  played with  their mighty forms.  So far as is known  110 human  eyes  havo watched the ages  of thoir growth.  Thoy havo no placo in  tho story of  nations.     They havo built  no  temples  and  furnished  no navies.  Thoy havo no placo in rtory.  Thoy wors  found  alono  in   tho wilderness, as the  Siberian fur hunter found tho ico cased  mammoth, in a world of thoir own.  To  the  mind  of   tho. oducatod   west   the  groves of the cedars of  Lebanon would  appeal  moro  strongly than   tho groves  of tho Sierra Nevada.    Tho bulk of th.  one could not outweigh the associations  of tho other.  But to tho primitive  notions "of ...eastern peoples the giant troo  makes  a direct appeal  not only for respect, bnt for worship.     Whatever departs from  the  ordinary course of nature strikes them as the immediate work  of God and ono which  necessarily pre  serves something of the divine.���������Lon  don Spectator.

A pathetic story comes, from Eussia  abont the last present received by the  dowager empress from tho   lato  czar.  Last summer tho czar and empress visited a great shop  in St. Petersburg to  buy jewels for their son's future brido.  The empress greatly admired a beautiful bracelet and  told thc czar that she  wished  to possess it.    On their return  one of tho serious attacks to which he  Was subject camo upon, him, and tho  empress forgot the  bracelet.    The czar  diod, and   to  tho empress in.the early  days of her widowhood came Nov. 14,  the first birthday she must pass alone.  On her other birthdays tho czar had  been wont to place. a bonquet  in the  morning room of  the empress.    Inside  the flowers was .always folded some rich  rare gift, chosen months beforehand.  Tho empress had avoided the room as  too full of painful memories, but this^  --moraihg,~tho"~morh"i_ig-".f"'"his^wedding  day, Nicholas" requested his mother to  go there as a favor to him.    Tho first  thing she saw was the  bouquet in the  usual place, and inside tho 'flowers was  a case fastened and sealed by the czar's  own hands.    It contained the. bracelet.  ,He had ordered it 011 tho samo day that  the empress saw it, and on his deathbed  had given instructions for the birthday-  gift, bidding his son to bo near to comfort hor when she received it.

The largely increased revenue from  Kootenay -justifies us in expecting that  the Government will be liberal in tlie  matter of expenditure on roads and  trails in this district. It will be remembered (hat only S.8,000 was voted  for South Kootenav where new  developments with their corresponding  requirements were almost a certainty,  while the iiorihern division of  Kootenay, where'110 particular developments were expected received a  much largei vote. The results have  justified the expectations. In South  Kootenay there are new finds and  more especially active developments  of old finds which have lain dormant  for some time. Numbers of names will  spring to our readers' lips. Springer  Creek, Ten Mile, Twelve Mile, Crawford Creek, White Grouse Mountain,  Sheep Creek, Champion Creek, .and  greatest of all, Rossland. None of  these can be called new finds. They  have all at any rate been known for a  period anterior to last session. But no  one could have foreseen the greatly-  increased activity which is to-day  taking men into nearly all of them.  Under these circumstances and with  the-very largely increased income  which is a direct result of the same  development, the Government will not  only be justified in an increased expenditure on trails and roads leading  to these spots, but will be wanting in  its duty to the people if it does not  help to provide means by which men  may easilv travel ;from place to place  and by which provisions may be  brought into them.  We believe some help is being given  to trails up Ten and Twelve Mile  Creeks, and as the Gold Commissioner  is visiting that .-.(���������������������������lion at present-he.  may see his way to still further aid  the miners in prosecuting their business there.  The old Slocan trail is in a shocking  condition. Fallen trees make it almost  impassable. It certainly is, or might  be, one of the main routes of travel  about Southern Kootenay. It connects the Slocan with Nelson, the  Lower Kootenay and Trail. The  Government should clear ib and put  it in good order.  rate of payment to the arbitrators,  subject to legislative provision.  Clauses 11 to 14 refer to the rilling  up of vacancies on the Board and to  the method of bringing questions before it.  The Court of Arbitration is to sit in  open court and is to be, governed as  far as practicable by the principles of  equity and good conscience. The parties to a,dispute may not employ  counsel or any paid agent save and  except one or more of their own number.  The Arbitrators' Award is to be  made by the President within seven  days of the conclusion of the sitting.  It must be the award, of a majority  (two out of three) and is to bear the  seal of the Board. By the consent of  both parties given beforehand, an  award may be made a rule of the  Supreme Court.  The Act appears to be a little vague  as to where the remuneration ofthe  conciliators or arbitrators is to come  from. Apparently it is to be found by  the parties to the suit. Provision for  this purpose will doubtless be found in  the regulations which the Lieutenant-  Governor has power, to make and  which we believe are not as yet  formulated.  We : understand that similar Acts  have been found to work well in the  other Colonies, and there is no reason  why men should not settle any disputes in this matter rather than by  violence and intimidation.  The latter word introduces a most  difficult and debateable matter into  question. Suppose a number of men  in a certain mine ask for higher pay  and apply under the Act to have the  point settled. At the same time the  mine manager can find any number of  men willing to take up the work of  the discontents at the old rate. How is  the Board to decide? It cannot force  the mine owners to pay A and B three  dollars and a half when C and D are  willing to do the work for three. It  may decide that A and Bare.to have  the three and a half if they work, but  the mine owners naturally will not  give them a chance, but will take on  C and D. It comes down to the old  thing. The question is governed by  the unfailing law of ,supply and demand. If the Act only helps us to  avoid the terrible crimes and horrible  violence that hashithertoaccompanied  trade disputes, it is something, but that  it or anything else will ever take the  place of nature's great law we do not  believe.  7*00  TRUE.  -THE-LABOUR���������CONCIL-ATION-AND  ARBITRATION ACT.  In connection with the recent, strike  at Rossland a good deal is heard about  this act, and it may, therefore, not be  out of place to explain its chief previsions.  It contains 27 clauses, occupying 8  pages of the usual size in which acts  of parliament ar.*--printed. It is, therefore, not bulky and-its meanings are  simple and easily acquired by anyone.  By-way of digression, .we may mention two pecularities ot the British  Columbian acts. .Firstly they are indexed in such a way as almost completely to' hide their existence, and,  secondly, the short title of the act is  evidently an after/thought and comes  in the last clause instead of immediately following the preamble.  The Act is brought into force by the  Lieutenant-Governor appointing the  Provincial Secretary to act as Commissioner of Councils of Conciliation, etc.  He or- his Deputy shall receive and  register, all applications for a reference  to the board. ' This board or council  shall consist of four conciliators, appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor,  on the recommendations or nominations of the disputants (two from each  side). Should these not be able to  arrive at a satisfactoi y conclusion the  . matter, may. be further referred to a  Board of Arbitration. This board consists of two arbitrators appointed by  the Board of Conciliation, one to represent the employer and the other  . the employed, and a third member,  appointed by the other two. This,  third member, who shall be the president of theBoaul, is to be chosen from  among the judges of the Supreme  Court of B. 0. In case of a failure on  the part of the' other two arbitrators'  to appoint the third member of tli-*  board, he shall be appointed by the  Lieutenant-Governor.  The reta'uneration of the members of  the Council of Conciliation is to be  fixed on a scale to be provided by  regulations passed under the Act. The  Lieutenant-Governor shall provide the  In an article on the mining industry  of Kootenay the Province has the following very pertinent remarks:  But let it not be forgotten that indications point strongly in the direction that Americans and not Britishers  are making and are going to make the  big hauls out of British Columbia.  The question may be asked, Why?  The answer lies in a nutshell. They  have greater energy, take greater  chances and are more business like.  When they decide on opening up a  mine they send a man to take charge  whom they can trust with full powers  aud plenty of money. If they don't  trust him they don't send him. ' The  British method, judging from what we  hear, is to send a man whom his company or principals do not trust, with  no powers and no money, and to try  and manage a mine from a London  office 10,000 miles away. If we do  nothing else let ��������� us take a leaf out of  the Yankee book here, otherwise we  shall be badly, left.  always are a l;*zy, idle lot, preferring  to live on any salary they can persuade  their dupes to give them or the pay of  some billet --which they obtain by  threats'.and bull-dosing of some sort,  A president of :t Union has been rv-.u-d  to remark before now : "If 1 don't get  the li.-si billet going in this here camp  I sh<-i:!'l not be surprised if there  might happen to be a strike before  long."  *  The Rossland Miner does us the  honour of printing our article entitled  "A Grave Responsibility" in full. This  is* just what we want. The more it is  read the better. .Our Rossland namesake would no well to print all of our  articles. Its editor would find that it  would save him working that brain of  his, which he could reserve for sleeping  purposes. But after printing our article he goes on to compliment ourselves and then that brain comes out  in all its wrinkles.

There has  lately sprung up an anti-gambling  association, which directs its efforts  specially against betting' on race  courses." It ranked some ten or a  dozen candidates among its members.  The British public hates to be interfered with in its amusements and- so  it took up the cudgells against these  anti-gamblers and kicked every one of  them out neck and crop, by large  majorities. ' ������������������  With tbat love for anything aristocratic which distinguishes republicans,  the press of the United" States is full  ofthe Duke of Argyll's marriage, The  following passage from the San Francisco Bulletin shows how much reliance  can be placed on their account of the  affair: "The bride was for" many  years a leading figure in court circles.  She is not yet 20 years of age.'" We  would like to ask the Bulletin at what  age ladies in England "come out?"  To oui- mind this wedding of a paralytic old man of 71 to a girl just out of  her teens, is positively indecent.  ���������- The figures given in our last issue of  the value of ore shipments from this  country were the customs valuations of  the same. It is well known that these  are below the actual value, which can  only be obtained from seeing the actual  smelter returns. These are not shown  to anyone. So that any estimate of  the exact value of ore shipped is only  guess work. The customs valuations  are always used for statistical purposes. Figures compiled by people  who guess at values are misleading to  the outside world and great harm  cames from publishing them.
