 XBSSha  VOL. 1.    NO. 41.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 1898.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  IL REPORT.  Annnal Report'  .of  the  Mines.  Minister oi  -Shows a Gratifying Increase in the Mineral Output of British Columbia  for the Year 1897.  The annual report, of tho Minister oJ  Mines for the year ending December  31, 1807 being an account of mining  open lions in tho Province of Bi'itijh  Columbia has been received.' The report was laid bofore thc provincial  legislature lust week, and contains, a  large amount of interesting and valuable information regardingtho development of the mining industries of tlio  province. In the introdurli' n to his  report Mr. \V A. Carlyle, provincial  mineralogist says: *'In compiling tho  statistical statement for ISO?, I have  been great)y aided by tho clauses in  the 'Inspection of Metalliferous _Act>  1897,' that mako it now obligatory for  mine owners.to send in adetailodstate-  niont of the production for the year by  loth of Januiiry, as 1 am now able to  present almost perfect returns for tbo  year ending December 31 "  The smelter returns for ore shipped  in December are often not received until February or later, and as the departmental report lias to be in press by  then the method adopted in compiling  statistics is to take the mill and smelter returns received during thc year.  ' The total production of gold, silver,  lead and copper, coal nnd co\'e for all  years up to 1S98 amounted to -������112,413,  485. Tbo production iS90 was S2,60S,-  S93; in 1897 it amounted to ���������'''10,455^268,  an increase of 40 per cent: over 189G.

The  placer gold output for 1897 shows 11  alight decrease from that of 1896, the  figures for tlie two years 'being $544,020  and :?513,520, respectively. The highest production iron, this houroe was in  1863, when it reached $3,913,563,'in the  time ol the groat, Cariboo   excitement.  .The coal products for the year  -ftniouNting to 82,648,562 and of coke to  g'J6,9S0. The coke all corn's from the  coke ovens at Ooniox, Vancouver Island  and thebulk was shipped to, Kootenay  smelters.  With regard to the progress of mining, Mr. Carly.le says : "Figures speak  for'themselves and the tables given  show very clearly tbe steady and gratifying growth of the mining industry.  The increase in the output of lode  mines from-'Sl.OL-O.OOO in 1S92 to over  $7,000,000 i ��������� 1S97 demands attention.  That 1898 will .see a. .substantial increase is now assured from the amount  of pre now in.-sight in the different  districts:".  It is to be hoped that Air Mcintosh's  purchases in the Rossland section will  paivout well, though some  who speak  willi authority have grave doubts as to  the subeess of somoof them at least.  The English company  for whom  tho  purchases were made, are a very strong  and influential corporation,  and upon  their satisfaction with  Mr. Mcintosh's  'investments will   the  future   of this  country   to a   considerable extent,1 in  English  estimation, at least, depend.  Those old country people, who are not  tnemselvoH miners, nnd who have not  called  in th<   best authorities,  as in  this case,  (0 assist them in their investments,  very seldom  consider circumstance.   They are too apt to conclude that  their purchases, no matter  through what channels made,are, a fair  illustration of the. whole.   As a, consequence  if their invrstmenfs are. not  successful, they' are apt  to  conclude  that "nothing good  can   come out of  Nazareth."     Investors    should   learn  that in this as well as  other countries  lho.re.aro mines  and mines; and it is  not until considerable money  is sunk  on a property,  that an estimate of its  future, even  by experts, can be made.  Although--''this country is rich in min-  orils every piece of earth and rock are  not loaded   with   wealth., As'we said  above, then, for tho sake of t  e future  of the country   in  tbe estimation! of  capitalists," it is to be hoped many  of  Mr. Mcintosh's hap-hazzard purchases  will turn out to tho satisfaction of the  owners.  V;  .SPRING HOUSECLEANING.  While people are particular about  having .their houso cleaned of thc winter's acoumulation of dirt, they're not  always so particular about their sys-  .Item.r ��������� Tt*"~hesds cleansing too, and  there's nothing will do it so thoroughly and effectually as Burdock's Blood  Bitters.

Provincial Revenue is Nearly a   Million  and a Half.-  The "Track Act" Bill.  The Rossl/uider thus sums up Mr  Kellie's "Truck Act" bill:  "In accordance with his promise  made to the Trades and Labor Council  Mr. J. M. Kellie has introduced in the  legislature v . "Truck Act." Among  other things it provides that any con-  , tract made with a workman as to where  he shall lodge, or board or with whom  he shall spent all or part of his wages  shall be null and void. It provides  that wages will be paid in currency,  and in case an employer supplies a  workman with goods from a store or  warehouse he cannot claim this as   an  Victoria, B.C.' March 31.���������It was  nearly midnight yesterday when ^he  House finished .up the debate on  Helniuken's motion, asking the Dominion government to refuse ��������� Corbin a  charter for a railroad in'to tho Boundary creek country. The motion eventually carried by 20 to 10.  'The year's estimates just presented  show'a revsnue of $1,453,000, a gain of  8165,000 over last' year, and an expected expenditure of- $1,992,000, as  against SI 556,000 last year. For roads  the North Riding of West Kootenay  $50,000 and the South Riding $56,000.  East Kootenay gets ���������f24,000.; for the  same purposes. .Among other items  are1 $60,000 ' for the :Rossland' court  house, ������5,000 for a new school at Ross-,  land, while for roads in theviciniiy of  Rossland and Trail there is an appropriation of-$.18,000. ��������� Thero is a general  increase in the salaries of officials.  Quite a number of new schools arc  provided for in Kootenay, including'  buildings at Nelson, Ymir and Pii.vel-  sloke. There is an appropriation , of  $op,000 for a new bridge across the  Thompson, river at Kamloops.  To-day's proceedings were short.  Mnophersi.n's master and servant bill,  which was to prevent, control laborers  being brought 111I0 the province, was  amended mo that it applied only to outside o.uiiiHr'cs and not to Canada. Premier Turner'and thc government1 took  tho stand that it was unpatriotic and  against the .-"pint of eon!odonilion to  discrim-'uate against fellow Canadians  From appearances the present is an  opportune time for the people of West  Kootenay. to'get in good work in adding to our irining population,, and  Vancouver, Skagway, Victoria, Seattle  and other Coast points are the fields in  which they could profitably operate.  No doubt the merchants aud business  men of these coast eitieH,who are filling  their purses by selling merchandise to  Klondykers who willleave their bones  and empty pocket books as the only  relics of eager gold hunters in tho far  north, would object to any attempt  to interfere with their harvest; but  what would be their loss .would be a  gain to the deluded north bound miners. What, we wish to refer to is the  advisability of the Kootenay country  sending a good man to each of these  pointy to interview Klondykers, and  show them the real situation in (.his  district.  The fact of the matter is that this  country has never yet been fully advertised upon its merits, and wc re it, we  are confident, the Klondyke would not  be getting the men and money it is  getting to-day���������many of the former  aiid much of the latter would be diverted this way. The facts speak for  thomselves-and if many of those Klondyke bent had them properly placed  before them by intelligent men, the  tide Uv a sensible extent at least would  turn this way.  The largest estimate we have seen of  (he output of th ��������� Klondyke for the  coming year is from $15,000,000 to  ������18,000,000, and that to be distributed  among well on to 100.000 people, in a  country made up of the worst of natural disadvantages, while the output of  thc Kootenay last year was well up to  the same figure,and distributed among  loss than one-third of the Klondyke  population. That is averaged up each  r< sident of the Kootenay got last year  three times as much as each Klon-  dyker is likely to get. this year, and  with living but a' fraction ofwhat.it is  in tho north country, and 110 comparison in the agroeableness of the climates  and safety of life and pioperty.  It appears (o us (hat if these north  bound men were shown it did not require any extensive capital to get  possession of. promising, undeveloped  claims here; and that the labor of a  few men who had means enough to  carry themselves a year, much les9  then is required iu the north country,  would soon develop such prospects into  good paying properties, many would  be sensible enough to see the force of  tlie arguments, and instead of going  northward locate in some portion of  this mining district.  This country hits very many illustra-  ions of the force of wh at we mean���������-  of well paying mines that were a year  or two ago bought for trifles, and under  ��������� the iaborbf a few months.-brought to  their present condition of profit to  their owners.  It appears to us that if the cities,  towns,-boards of trade, mine owners,  and others interested in the prosperity of this section, were to jointly take  up this matter, and pay the expenses  of five or six good men at these points  operating in this way, the returns  .vpuld show it was a well directed expenditure. '.'''..".  ; The conclusion forced oh any one  who calmnly looks at the facts is, that  at best it can only be one in many  hundreds who can make a strike in  the Klondyke, while there is a certainty of a; reasonable competency to every  one who employs a little means and  reasonable energy in the Kootenay;  and this should turn the tide with  many.  when all was in readiness, . Lo ! And  Behold !! 'I bo Rev. Mr. Cleliand could  not -be found !!���������! Scouts were at once  sent out to different parts of the city,  and after a very energetic hunt he  wan found, and along with Mrs. Cleliand was decoyed into Mr. McMillan's  bouse, where Mrs. McMillan, who had  been chosen spokeswoman, in a very  neat speach, of well chosen words, presented them with the purse and &25 to  S30 worth of goods, wood, etc.  The surprise was great indeed, but  not undeserved. Then Mr. Cleliand on  behalf of himself and wifc was not at  all satisfied, but there and then turned  the "Surprise party*' into a ''Thanksgiving party." Of course he was allowed to have his own way.  Afterwards games of Tarious kinds  wero indulged in for some time, when  refreshments were served in Mrs. McMillan's exceedingly nice style, after  which songs and recitation? were in  order until near' midnight, when the  [airly broke up after a most enjoyable  time by sinning Auld Lang Syne.  G. L.     '  Sandon, March 23lh   189S.  The Ore Sampler's Capacity  Increased.  to; be  Mr. Beat ty of Rosebery was in Sandon on Wednesday and when seen by  a Review 'reported seemed in good  spirits about the prospects and out-  Iook for Kootenay and Rosebery in particular, and said it was his .opinion  from enqmrcs and information' he  could gather that the Yukon rush was  subsiding and had to say if the different Boards of Trades throughout Kootenay would now take time by thc forelock and send agents to the Coast  cities aa well as northern points and  advertise strongly the Kootenay country, it would have a tendency  to turn the tide Kootenay wards this  summer, as wc can clearly prove thc  output of; the Kootenay mines  one hundred fold better than the  Klondyke, considering the population  in tho two places struggling for the  mighty dollar. I think there ��������� is altogether too much lassitude in our not  following them into the camp if necessary and proclaiming our permanency and mining, wealth and output  compared with only a small population as yet; and. I am fully convinced  this matter should be taken'up at once,  and pushed determinedly. How is  your townsite getting oh at Rosebery  was asked ? "Exceedingly bright, Lhe  Ore Sampling company now are hard  at work erecting the mill and office ���������  they have decided to inoreas< the  capacity of the works from 100 tons  daily to 250 tons, and are building accordingly. Rosebery will have the  largest pay roll on the lake this summer without doubt, and together with  the Townsite company, intend to expend considerable money on improvements. I look for quite, a boom at  that point. The C. P.,R. are now preparing to handle tho large freight traffic by putting the first and only track  scales on its Kootenay branches here  which is significant."  The city council met on Monday  evening last in council chamber, and  all were present with the mayor in the  chair.  A petition was presnted frono McDonald Bros., H. McGee, Bennett and  Wamslcy, R. Cunning, J. Buckley,  Switzer & McClusky, Thompson Bros.,  J. S. Richardson, B. O. -Nelson, L. Port-  mann, Wnterlnnd, H. McDonell, R.  Orando, Lowes & Harrington and VV.

She also sang  "Way Down Upon the Swanee River"  in a very characteristic and touching  manner. Miss Leatha Liverpool, the  contralto, also sang in good voice and  was heartily encored. G. W. Walley,  the celebrated basso piofundo, has  been here before. His impersonations  were good, especially so in the eong  "We're Going to say Good-Bye," which  was rendered with genuine feeling.  The songs of G. W. Watkins were likewise gooii, and his feats as a ventriloquist were the hit of the evening. Mr.  A. McKenzie was the fun-maker of the  company, and kept the audience in, a  roar with his jokes and songs. He was  re-called: time after time. Lastly the  male quartette deserves especial .mention. The imitations of. Barnum's calliope and the Chinese choir, as well as  tne other songs, were very entertaining. As a whole, the programme was  dominated by a spirit of entertainment from start to finish, and delighted  the audience.���������Santa'Ann, Cal., Evening Blade.

Swift,  Spokane.  A few of the ladies in connection  with the "Ladies Aid.Society" of the  Presbyterian church in this city, at  their meeting on Thursday last, mooted  the idea of a "found party" by way of  a little help and encouragement . to.  their esteemed minister, tlie Rev. J.  Cleliand and his ��������� unliable and hardworking wife.  Everyone seemed to at once take the  matter up in good earnest. Wood cutters were soon at wook on the adjacent  hillside "His Reverence" amontr them.  Down town the mayor soon had this  noble schema transmographyed into a  "Dollar party" and without delay had  Mr. D McMillan harnessed in. a subscription list which met with a very  hearty and liberal respose.  On Saturday evening the surprise  came oil'at the house of Mr. D. Mc-  Millan, on Society hill, where some  forty ladies and gentlemen had assembled with a great quantity of articles  of a very, useful nature and a purse  lined with   $85 . was   secured.     Then  Although our city is always regarded  as a healthy place, sickness occasionally visits some of our citizens. Mrs.  A. 0. McArthur, who has not been very  strong for years, is under the doctor's  care with some lung trouble. Her condition is critical, but latest reports are  favorable.  Mrs-A. P. Nichols took sick a few  days ago, and, though dangerously low  for a time, is now on a fair waw to recovery.  Mrs. McQueen, wife of druggist McQueen, has been sick for a length of  time, but fortunately not dangerously  so.  Thc manager of the B. C. Bank, Mr.  Myttpn, went to the Harrison Hot  Springs some two weeks ago to recup-  erate,and while there has suffered very  severely fr'sm a rheumatic attack.  A bad accidetit occurred on tlie  C. P. R. at English rivor near Port  Arthur on Friday by a broken rail. A  heavy passenger train became derailed ; but fortunate!} on'levelground  so the ears simply run into heavy  snow banks till they stopped of their  own accord. One man only was rilled  and he stepping from one car to another at the time of the accident, fell  under the train. His name was F,  Mardin, of Detroit.

Ciillil'I'lilli'ljlHHI.  To tho Editor of The Ml nine Ho view:  Dkar Sir,���������I think the paragraph in  the news columns of your lust issue in  reference to the wood thieves is very  misleading, for there is no wood to be  had in, or near, Sandon for "nothing."  There are owners for it all, so it is  stealing just the same. Let those lazy  fellows buy their wood the same as  honest men have to do, starve, or go to  God. Please make the necessary correction before some poor fellow gets  in o trouble.   I am  Yours, etc.  Stop Thief.  Sandon, March 28, '98.  With all due respect to the writer of  the foregoing, we .still think there are  lots of wood and logs in thc creeks  that may be had for nothing, when the  water is low ; and standing timber at  such a low price that it is next to  nothing, certainly cheaper than the  costs of the police court.���������Ed. Review.  The Isis, oh the Lucky Jim lead, has  been sold for $4,000.  It is said a deal is on for the Hoot-  alinkwa claim al Whitewater.  The Antoine mine is shipping five  cars of ore this month, out of which,a  dividend will be p-iid.  The Enterprise mine has 600 tons of  ore at its landing on Slocan lake and  is working a force of 30 men.  A big strike is reported on the Columbia mine, near Slocan City, running  433 oz. silver and $31 in gold.  At length it is announced that Mr.  Eaton has transferred his interest in  the Whitewater mine to the English  company that had an option on it for  some time. The transfer took place  last week. S. S. Fowler is the new  manager. All told ��������� the mine has  earned $104,000 for the late owners.  The reports of rich placer ground on  the Big Salmon are confirmed and  hundred, are hurrying in there. It is  said that in richness and extent, the  Big Salmon diggings fully, equal the  Klondyke. Pans of $40 and even ������50  being recorded, while from $1.50 to S3  is quite common.   ���������un*  ARE   YOU  TO  LIYE   IN  ALASKA.  Some Requifemants that  will be Found  Indispensable.

President  J. R. Cameron presided. Mr. Sanford  the miner in,charge presented an extensive report, which was very favorable. It went to show there was a very  large body of gold-bearing quartz in  sight, that work was progressing well,  and that all that was,'. required was  more capital to purchase the necessary  machinery to develop a well paying  gold mine. From developments inthe  cross-cut recently put in, there was a  large rich vein of quartz ��������� against the  lower wall, and stoping on this to some  extent was being prosecuted.

Aside from  the chorus singing which was.admirable for it's melody, unison and harmony, the individual parts were well  taken.

The universal article of diet in^ that  country, depended upon and indispensable, is bread or biscuit. And to make '  the bread and biscuit, either in the  camp or upon the trail, yeast cannot  be used���������it must bo baking powder ;  and the powder manufactured bj' the  processes of thcRoyal Baking Powder  company, miners and prospectors have  learned, is the only one which will  stand in that peculiar climate of cold  and dampness and raise the bread and  biscuit satisfactorily.  These facts are very important for  every one proposing to go to Alaska  and thc Yukon country to know, for  should he be persuaded.by some outfitter to take one of the cheap brands  of baking powder, it will cost just as  much to transport it, and then when  he opens it for use, after all his labor  in packing it over the long and difficult  route, he will find a solid caked mass  or a lot of spoiled powder, with no  strength and useless.,: Such a mistake  might lead to the most serious results.  Alaska is no place in which to experiment in food, or try to economize with  your stomach. For use in such a climate, and other the trying and fatiguing  conditions of : life, and labor in that  country', everything must be the .  best andmost useful, and above all it  is imperative that all food supplies  shall have perfect keeping qualities.  It is abusrd to convey over such difficult and expensive routes an article  that will deteriorate iu transit, or that  will be. found when required for use to  have lost a great part of its value.  There is no better guide to follow in  in these, matters than the advice : of  those who have gone' through similar  experience. Mr. McQuesten, who is  called "the father of "Alaska," after an  experience of years upon the trail, in  the camp, and in the use of every kind  of supply, says : "We find in Alaska  that the importance of a proper, kind  of bakiixg powder can not be overestimated. A miner with a can of bad  baking powder is almost helpless in  Alaska. We have tried all sorts, and  have been obliged to settle down to use  nothing but the Royal. It is stronger  and carries ' further, but above all  things; it is the only powder that will  endure the sevore climate changes of  the Arctic region."  It is for the same reasons that the  U. S. government in its relief expeditions, and Peary, the famous arctic  traveller, have carried the Royal Baking Powder exclusively.   .  The Royal Baking Powder will not  lose its strength either on board ship  or in damp climates, and is the most  highly concentrated and efficient of  leavening agents. Hence it is indis-  pens iblc to carry Alaskan outfits. Et  can be had of any ������f the trading companies in Alaska., but should the miner  procure his supplies before leaving, ho  should resist every attempt of the outfitter to palm off upon him any of the  other brands of baking powder, for  they will spoil and prove the cause of  great disappointment and trouble.  ; BRIGHT'S DISEASE BEATEN.

SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 1898.  The Mining Review  SANDON, BRITISH COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY APRIL 2, 189*.  Subscription $2.00 Per Year  Strictly in Advnaci:  THE,,   BLIND   LEADING    THE  BLIND.  If British  Columbia   is not,   as   a  mining country, making as much headway as some people think it ought to  be making,   the greatest  impediments  in the   way   of   its progress  are   the  representations abroad of many who  assume to speak of it with the authority of the Book.    According  to   thc  'Mining  Record,  of Victoria,   a   Mi.  Edgar P. Rathhone, whom that paper  'calls  "the well-known   mining  engineer" delivered a lecture in   the Royal  Colonial Institute,   London,   recently  to educate the people on  the progress  of mining in  this country.    The Mining   Record   says   this    "well-known  mining engineer"   was  astonished   at  the lack of knowledge   as to   the   advancement of mining   in this country,  as he found   it   was   not known   over  there   that there were   more than  the  "Hall mines" and  "possibly, perhaps,  the    Le Roi"    dividend    paying    to  the  investing  public.    And   he   took  them into his confidence, that is   this  . "well-known   mining   engineer"   did,  and assured them there were, at least,  twenty dividend payers in   West Kootenay.    As he mentioned of this twenty  but the "Fidelity, near Silverton," this  "well-known  mining   engineer"   must  have regarded that as   the foremost of  the twenty.    We believe,   the Fidelity  is a promising property ;'but it is only  justice   to   the rest of the country   to  say  that  out  of thc   possible twenty  known   to   "this   well-known  mining  engineer," it does not rank higher than  the twentieth.  From the first dawn of intelligence,  the wisdom of selecting the blind to  lead the blind was always open to  question, and it is equally so to the  present day.  Further on Mr. Rathbone  said   "it  was a drawback to mining that engineers were   not  obliged   to qualify   in  some way   in   their profession."    We  presume so, and he might have added  that "apostles of light" should be at  least compelled   to   fortify themselves  with, at the least, a   tallow candle before they set out  to show   the road to  wealth in mining toothers.    Anyone  with   the  slighest smattering of knowledge of mining in this province ought  to know that in rank after the LeRoi,  as dividend payers, come   the Payne,  the Star,    the    Reco.  the   Ruth, the  Whitewater, the Idaho, the Rambler,  the Goodenough.the Last Chance, and  several others  whose names are  familiar to .the public.    It is not to be expected that all men who are following  mining in  the .country   are thoroughly  posted on the .country's output;   but it  ss a fact that  any and all y/ho take it  iupon themselves  to advise capitalists,  where capital   is sought, on   the prospects before them, should, in the country's interest,   have an ordinary know-  Jedge   of the   subject   in hand.    It is  infinitely better that no lectures at all  should be given then   that they should  Ibe given- by unintelligent,.though sensible and interesting lecturers,' as our  confrere .caljs Mr, Rathbone.  opment, and sell good propeiiies at  moderate prices, nor is any owner  justified in asking any capitalist to put  up immense sums of money for undeveloped pioperties. The idea is to  get the owners and the capitalists to  go hand in hand in the risk. If it  turns out badly then neither patty is  badly treated; and if it turns out well,  the owner g������ts a proper price for his  property, and the capitalist is w;ll  enough paid for his investment.  It appears to us   that the eflorts  of  all interested ought to be directed   in  this channel,  to secure  a harmonizing  of both interests.    There are sharks,  and many of   tliem,   lying in wait  to  bleed   capitalists in   the  purchase  of  properties  at  extortionate   prices,   of  which nothing is known,  and   legislation should :.tep in and prevent this a<-  far as possible, >>o that investors would  have greater safety in    making  their  investments.     It may be impossible  to  prevent   fleecin-j   altogether bul    the  force of legislation   ought   to  be   directed   in red ucing  it to a minimum.  If capitalists  knew this was the   case,  they would be more disposed  to take  ordinaty mining risks, and .illinterests  would be much served thereby.  The Provincial government is going  to petition the Federal government for  tlu establishment of a mint in this  p.ovince. This is right. We have  the raw material here, its manufacture  wo-ild yield a revenue to Canada that  is .iow going to the United States, and  wo'ild employ many men besides, and  no one argument can be brought  air iinst it.  THE  CAUSE OF THE DEPRESSION.  A    great   many   are   disposed   to  attribute      the    present    dullness   of  business  in the Slocan   to   lhe   rush  of miners   from   these  parts   to   the  Yukon.    It was felt that early last fall,  miners began   to shut up their purses  and to save every cent they could for  the rush.    This has had its eflect, but  the cause  of the dullness cannot  be  traced to this alone.    This is one depressing cause,   and one that has had  its serious consequences, but there are  others  of great   gravity.    Last year.  1S97, was one of unexampled activity  and prosperity,  one  in which a   large  amount of money was spent locally in  prospecting, development and general  preparation for extensive operations.  This led to a local expenditure that is  not continued after the necessary preparations for more extended  work are  made, and the more extended work is  really begun.      In   a  word, improvements in mining conditions do not improve the spending capabilities of the  wage earners, they simply leave   them  as  they were, while the   mine owners  alone profit by the   altered condition.  If at any time,   par unit of labor,  ihe  profits to the owners  are doubled the  expenditures of the laborer remain the  same.    If, inslead of   $5.00   to   the  owner, the wxgc owner of a day,   unimproved   conditions   raises   that to  $S.00, it in  no way impioves   his expending capability���������it does that of lhe  mine owners, but unfortunately for the  Slocan,most of ihem are non-iesidents.  If all thc owners of Sandon mines, for  instance, were residents  like those of  the Raco,  increased output  would almost  invariably   be   followed   by   in-  ceased prosperity ;   but they arc not,  and- the circumstance   will always be  followed by its drawbacks.    We have,  however, very fortunately many young  properties in our neighborhood owned  largely by residents; and if, when the  foolishness of the Klondyke craze becomes more apparent, as if soon   will  he, these owners are only successful in  securing capital to develop their hold-'  LIFE'S RED STREAM.  When the blood is pure and rich,  1 c .'th and vitality arj carried to all  pa.Is ol the body. When it is impure  o. watery, thc seeds of dise-.se germinate and grow.

The British admiralty and the -war  department are tasting, under various  climatic conditions, the new method for  preserving flonr. Qne objection to the  establishment of national granaries has  been the difficulty of storing grain for 1  any length of time. The grain germinates and is ruined, and to keep large  quantities in sound condition has been  pronounced impracticable. Experiments  ire being made with a system of compression into bricks by hydraulic pressure. The trials show that the Hour so  treated is not affected by damp, even  under unfavorable, conditions, and ie  free from mold. The compression destroys all forms of larval life and the  flour is thus rendered safe from tho attacks of the insects. The saving in storage is euormous, as the cubic space occupied by 100 pounds of loose Hour will  hold more than !'00 pounds of the compressed article.���������Scientific American.  . .

THAT SEDAN CHAIR  Commenting on Mr. Raithbone's  .lecture referred to above, a gentleman  in the audience said, "it would be  ���������well for investors to invest only on  -.those vvefos which they had ascertained  ������0 ofler .-satisfactory.' profits." This  ���������gentleman's idea was that the jackalls,  <ol British Columbia should become  (the providers for the lions of England.  No doubt from his standpoint, his  .contention was a shrewd one, but his;  .standpoint is as untenable as Mr.  JRathbome's lecture was unreliable.  ,In the first place it may be remarked  that the miners of this country are,not  all millionaires, and have not the capital to develop   their properties to the  condition   of safety  desired   by that  English commentator.    If they were,  they would have no need  for English  capital ��������� at all,   and would be  arrant  fools to court  it.      Jf the   miners   of  this country all "had (the pieans to develop, their  prospects  until they-became dividend-paying, like the. Fidel-.  ity (Mr. Rathbone's ideal), they could  "paddle their own canoes"without outride help,   and would be very foolish  ���������to desire assistance   for the.  prosecution of .actual mining only.    What all  CTUSt be advised of is, there is always  more or Jess risk ie rnining operations,  and the idea is jto get all interested in  the operations'to share that risk.     No  capitalist has   the   right--.to   ask   anyj  owner to assume all the risk of deyel-i1 handle pur hidden resources,  ini,s, we will a i.once feel a measure,of  prosperity unprscedented.  Another drxiyback'to this place, up  to the present; lies in the fact that  many of our mines are so far distant  fhe-'miners cannot live . in the'". town,  and as a. result have not brought their  families here to spend their earnings.'  This will be, to .1 considerable.-extent  overcome when the projected wagon!  roads of the coiiiing summer are completed. With good roads to the Reco  group, and the ' Queen ' Bess, and  branches to tbe ^smaller mines tributary, miners will be able to leave their  families in town, and come down from  the mines frequently, riding up in the  empty wagons jn the mornings. This  will have a mist beneficial influence  on the future of the place; and if. with  it, mine owners would only, as far as  possible in employing miners, employ  .inariied men,, residences would once  again be seen going up in every direction and prosperity booming with  them.  None of these conditions, .joy/eyer,  operate against the value pf.our mining;  prospects.1 It matters not whether the  owners of our properties are residents  or Cosigners, whether the local expenditures .sustain a population of  2,000 or 20jC.oo, ;,lheir wealth is un-  aflected thereby*) We believe we have  the richest mineral surroundings ii) the,  world���������those that will bring investors  the handsomest profits for their investments, and tto lily requires the fact to  be properly represented abroad to secure the necessary capital lo properly  "I repeat it," said Jacques d'Ebli-  gnao, 'with an emphasis so curious that  all turned to look at him; "it gave me  the fright of a lifetime."

"This was the state of things, when,  one day, I chanced to find tbe pass l.cy  of 'le pore,' who spent half his time in  the wineshop across the way aud tho  other half gossiping at his door with his  equally idle neighbors.  "Determined to profit by this piece of  hick, I managed to speak a word to Vic-  toire, my littlo sweetheart, and to propose to her a visit to the theater that  evening, if she could elude the vigilance of her mother and join me unseen.

It rests with  every woman to decide for herself which  kind of a mother she  will be.  The woman who  takes the right  care of herself  during the months  preceding- maternity may rest  content in the assurance that her  b:iby will be a  strong, healthy,  h.ippy one. The  woman who suffers from disor-  "]ders of the distinctly feminine  organism during this critical period, and  fails to resort to the ii^ht remedy, is pretty  sure to have a puny, peevi.li, sickly baby,  born into the world with the seeds of weakness and disease already implanted in its  little body. Dr. Pieice's Favorite Prescription is the best of all medicines for  prospective mothers. It imparts health,  strength, vigor, and elasticity to the deli  cate and important oigaus that bear the  brunt of motheihood. It prepares a woman for the time of ti ial and danger. It  strengthens and invigoiLite-, nnd insurestht  perfect well-being and absolute health of  both niolhci and child. It does away with  the squeamishness of the interesting period. It makes sure an ample supply of  nouiishment for the little new-comer. It  transforms weak, sickly, nervous and despondent invalids inlo healthy, happy  wives and motheis. Thousands of homes  to which babie.- once came to stay but for a  brief day aud then die, now bless this wonderful medicine for the gift of happy,  healthful babies.

APRIL 2, 1898.  TEE MINING REVIEW.  3  As Taken Erom the Provincial Mineralogist's Report for the  Past Year.  During the past year this Division  was sub-divided into three recording  divisions, but in this report tlie terri)  '"Slocan" will refer to the territory  ���������within the old boundaries. Unwitting-  Jy, in Bulletin No. 3, several mines as  lhe "Whitewater," '-Washington,"Northern Belle," etc., were spoken of as  being in the Slocan, instead of in the  Ainsworth Division.  The average market values at New  York have been til ken, for silver for  189G, 67 eenls, and for 1897. 5U.8 cents  per ounce. For lead for 1890, ������2.98 per  100 lbs., for 1897, $3.58.  The actual amount paid in dividends |  cannot be stated, as some of the mines  never make profits public, such as the  now famous "Payne," but it is known  that the total amount is at least $1.-  800,000. of which 8900,000 were paid in  1897. The following mines have stated  publicly their dividends,���������"Slocan  Star," >-400.000; "Eeco," $287,500;  "Idaho," $220,000; '���������Rambler-Cariboo."  5H0.000; "Goodenough," $32,500; "Last  Chance," .?37,000.  ~In the autumn of 1S9G and thc winter  of 1897, the silver mines of the Slocan  attracted unusual attention, as the  great money making possibilities of  very high-grade silver-lead veins became apparent. A real boom was in  Augurated. the different towns built  up rapidly as funny people crowded in,  but in July the sudden drop in the  price of silver checked all speculation  and the boom was over.  The increased out-put of the Slocan  for 1897 speaks for itself, while the  record of some of its mines during tho  year attracts much attention. One  significant feature during the year hns  been that despite t).e fact that gold is  the favorite and silver lias fewer  friends, several of the larger and developed properties have passed under  the control of British capital, and  others an being examined with a yiew  to purchase, the fact being realize;!  that this high-grade Slocan silver-lead  ore i������ exceedingly profitable, and yielding J,apdsome dividends.  JSTo new properties attained special  prominence durine, the) year, but several of the older claims forged ahead  and became heavy shippers,such as the  "Payne," "Ruth," "Reco" and "Whitewater," and several, such as the "Quee..  Bess," "Charleston," "Ivanhoe," "Last  pfianpe," etc., are reported to have  good ore chutes now in sight, but no  mines were visited by the writer during the past season. First, but small  shipments were made from quite a  number of new claims, development  work ia progressing in many places,  and remembering how every good  property in the Slocan had very insignificant surface prospects, It is impossible to tell when a good ore-chute  of this high-grade ore may be struck,  and a mine hitherto little known suddenly springs into prominence.  Many prospectors and i.YJners aro  preparing to join the great rush northward to the gold fields", and their unusual economy is br jng felt ip all the  rowns, but thisj heg-jra "will jipt be an  u_nrpi_5.e.l evil' as the prices asked for  prospects are already falling rapidly,  ancl in all probability in gpite of  quieter times, more and better development work will be done, as it will be  done, as will be found that many if not  moro purchasers will/be now in search  of good properties. ;  Since last report the C. P. R.' has  ,built and opened, its brand) line from  Slocan City to Slocan Crossing on the  Nelson and"R6baon line, and a large  new steamer runs tWiCe cLiily irom  SlpcaniCity to "Roseberry, :where it connects with t|}������ I^akusp and Sand op  jiranch. The K. and S. B. is considering the extension of this line northward from Kagfo and the Pnnoan  river, to open up that large section of  country.  Little or no reduction in freight and  treatment charges has been obtained,  ^the charges running from $20.50 o $22  . per ton.' The American smelters aro  eager to get this ore and thos.; to the  .south, as in Colorado, charge $1.50  to S3 per ton smelting charges on the  net.weight (i. e. lege moisture) and $19  a gross ton |:or freight. This is a fiat  rn-te, that ia, no account is taken of  silica or irpii contents, only excess of  ssinc or over 10 per cent., and, in some  contracts 12 per cent., being paid for  at fifty cents per unit. Of course the  smelters of shorter haul, as on Puget  Sound, charge higher smelting rates to  make up the diflurence in lower  freights.  Sflver is pajd for at New York price  at time of se'itl'ejrient for 95 per ' cent,  of assay value, and lead also up to 90  per cept. of assay value.--  The c|qty js J.5 cent's on every pound  of lead in the ore as expected, to 'the  United States, although the smoker  only pays the miner for ninety per  cent. The ore is shipped in bond lo  the smelter, whore the mrii pay the  duty, after sampling, to the United  States Government out of the value of  |;he ore. or else they retain this duty  charge, and ship' refined lead to Europe  when the prices there, always lower  tlipp in the United State?, are such as  toadrpit of a margin of profit by adding the amount of the duty to their  selling price.   Hence the   mine-owner  always pays this duty charge on lead.  The Province levies a tax of 1 per  cent, on the value of the ore after deducting freight and treatment charges.  Hence the average ore for 1897 yield-;  ing 108.5 ozs silver and -15.7 per cent-  lead, nt the average prices for 3887,  would be worth ft'J7.70 per ton, from  which have to be deducted :  Freight and treatment  $22.00  Duty on lead (100 oer cent.)     15.25  Government tax..'  75  ATTENTION TRAVELLING PUBLIC.  $38.00  Besides the cost of mining, sacking  and transport to point of shipment, so  that the net value or profit on average  Slocan ore will be a >out 1,50 to $55 per  ton.  Sampling works are running at  Kaslo, and it is proposed to put such a  plant at Roseberry for ores going out  ���������on the O. P. R. Nearly all the larger  mines ship direct to the smelter, some  .sending alternative lots to different  smelters, lho price of sampling is  ���������31.50 per ton, and tho sampler is prepared to buy the ore outright after  sampler.  Transportation.���������Thc ore is shipped  in sacks to the cars, and at Five Mile  Point, when loading from tlie steamer  to the N. & F. S. R. It., the sacks are  emptied, th������. ore going in bulk, so that  Ihe mine-holder gets far nwre use for  his sacks. Facilities for the shipment  of ore are constantly improving, but  thc r.iilro.ds and boat lines prevent  reduction in charges.

SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 1898.  MOUNTAIN   ECHOES.  Next Friday being a legal holiday  we wili print "Thursday evening.  The price of copper is going up  rapidly in the English markets.  Ymir has a population of 1,000 and a  monthly p.iy roll of over ������20,000.  The Whitewater mine is removing  its hrad office from Kaslo to Kelson.  The Kaslo Board of Trade favors the  Corbin road into the Boundary country.  Win. Perdue, of Kaalo, is back from  the Klondyke, and says he has enough  of it.  "The Rossland people "are t.ying Lu  divert the Crow's Nest railway from  Nelson.  Why is a handfcleigh on she trails  like time and tide? Bccau.se it waits  for no man.  Roman Catholic and Church of England prayers and hymnals in great variety atCliil'e's bookstore.  It is expected that the government  will spend -.100,001) in West Kootenny  during the present year for wagon  roads, trails, public buildings, etc.  - Thc Payne people arc finding l."lti;r  and larger (piantitit-s of ore in their  lower tunnel than in their higherone.-.

The Chief of  Police  man to pay him  doc  says thc fir ���������"I  tax's <w;is Mr.  Melvin/wiitp owns five of the caiiiin.v  Ten dollars up at once for dogs is no  small item.  Bad snow sto.ms in Montana and  other .states, and in the territories n..:u  Moose .law have completely demoralised traffic on the railways for the  past week or more.   ,  Unusual activity is noted now at  both ends of Kootenay lake���������at the  south end from railway building and  at thc upper end from coinmei cmg  the Lardo-Diinvan improvements.  Work lias been stopped on some ul  the smaller mines' including the Ajax  for the past two or three weeks and  may remain suspended a couple ol  weeks more to allow all the snow  slides to roll by.  An editor in Kansas nsks for the lowest tenders to supply him with a sack  of flour, one pair of pants and a hut.  He says that is the way merchants do  business with him when they want a  dollar's worth of job printing.  A fire in one of Mr. Lovatt's houses  culled out the Brigade on Satuday ; but.  as a spectator put it, the Ladies'Aid  Society had it out before the firemen  reached the scene. Tne ladies were  quite an aid to the squire in that emergency.  Charleton's Sunday Observance bill  has been killed at Ottawa, and very  properly so. Charlcton is a crank' and  what right a crank has to force the  whole of Canada to do us he says, even  on Sunday, is what many would li'-e  to know.  A large number of Nova Scotia  miners have come to the city during  the last few days . If they only have  a little money to take up claims of  their owri.and prosecute work on their  own account they cannot miss at least  reasonable success. .  Mr. Harris was up to; the Reco on  Wednesday- and: came down on a  "flyer." He says Fo. 6 tunnel is looking especiallv well, and that the ore in  sight is 100 per cent, better, than any  before'found, in it. which means it is  the best the earth can produce.  Mr. A. M. Beattie, townsite agent.  Roseberv was a caller at The Review  office, Wednesday. He speaks very  hopefully of that town, and says this  spring there will be a great many people locate there. At present the snow  is all off and the ground very dry.  ���������  Charitably disposed people of the  city.subscribed liberally the other day.  on a list presented by Chief Doplan, to  assist a,man named Quinn who lies in  a dangerous condition in a shanty on.  the Three Forks road, When found,  he was very sick and entirely desti-.  tute.      ; '.���������..���������'���������., .'  A miner named Kelly, who had been  working at the Noble Five, died at th.  Balmoral hotel hero of pneumonia on  Tuesday. While at work he contracted  the disease, and was brought down on  a rawhide ; but was past medical skill  when he reached here and died shortly  after. <He at one time belonged to  Kaslo where his body was taken for  interment..  Mr. Harris has engaged Mr. Mac-  donald, of Trail, a hotel man of very  wide experience to manage the. .new  Reco, which will be completely over  hauled and refitted in. a very few days.  The workmen on the refitting' and renovating are. winding-up as rapidly as  possible, and will leave the institution  the best to be had in the country when  . they all moye out.  The Reco people have bought th-  right of way of lower or .No. 8 tunnel  of the'Goodenough mine, which we believe, in mining parlance means a hall'  interest and includes management.  There are now 10 men at work, and w-  may expect to hear of the past record  of this mine, which was always good,  being excelled in'thc future. Everything is looking well for a prosperous  season.  Tho City Council had a special mi et*  ing Wednesday, at which they engaged  Mr. Riblctt���������motion, of Broddy and  Switzer���������to make surveys, etc., of the  projected improvements on Cody and  Carpenter creeks. The Finance com.  reported they had .arranged with a private party for considerable lunch to  meet expenses of repairs on the creeks.  Motion of Hunter and Mighton tho  Com. on Public Works were instructed  to make preliminary arrangements for  the improvement of the creeks.  ; This is ihe gentlemanly language  employed by the Kuskanook Searchlight in announcing marriages: A  gallant knight by the name of Alia.,,  swooped down on our city Isst week  and carried off one of our blushing  young maids. He took her to  Nelson where thev   will   be   married.  The young lady, Miss- , has   been  a resident here for a month. _ She will  be greatly missed at our: social   hops,  . at which she always took a prominent,  part. Several of our local heart  crushers were trreatly surprised when  they heard about it, as they have been  laboring under the delusion that every  heifer on this ranch was corralled.  A line lot of new ingrain  wallpaper  at Cliffe's bookstore.     A new stock, of  the best patterns to choo&e fr'im.  A cut at Hunter Bros, had a peculiar  adventure o: its own the other niuht.  While prowling upstairs he fell down  between the rustic and the inside  sheeting. While there the | ensive  visitor made use of some very appealing petitions until liberated a Jew  hours after liy out ing a hole in inside.  Thoin.'ii. will luir-iJy try that over.ig.iin.  Some of the coast papers are bow1-  ing becnu.se Iho Senate del'eated the  Yukon Railway Bill, and deel-ire it is  detrimental to the trade of the province. .No doubt it dampens the boom  of trade in the -.oast cities but it  would take, a seer to say what other  trade it ha.= injured It would have  been millions iu thc pro incial tre..*-  ury from Kootenay revenues, and millions to the counlry in other respects  if there iifV. r bad been a Yukon, to  say nothing of a Yukon railway Bill.  The speciil service* h.iye been c ir  ried on with good results this week.  Kev Powell, Now Denver, was present  Tuesday and Wednesday evening, gi-  ing two profitable ddrrssit* riervie-.s  next week excepting Saturday even'in;  and pos.sildy Monday, when it is expected that Adjt.
