 VOL.' 1.    NO. 29.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JAUNARY 1, 1898.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  SfM  i  The -jPsira p-iss by rapidly, to be sure  It seems but yesterday since the Christmas of-'96 was being   celebrated   with  Christmas gifts and Christmas   carols;  since friends were .taking   friends   by  the hand and   wishing   them ' all   the  compliments    of    the  season;   since  youngsters   were dreaming   el Santa  Claus and all his treasures;   since the  oJd, old story of Bethlehem waa   being  told in every variety of phrase in thousands or*  churches, and in myriads of  homes; since family gatherings   without number, hailed Christmas   as   the  brightest day of all the year, and since  multitudes on the Inst eve of thiB great  Christian festival, raised their song   of  gladness, with which was mingled  the  exalting hope that thus they would all  meet in coming years.   But the weeks  have passed rapidly by. and Christmas  is again at the door before the   echoes  of its last rejoicings have fairly   died  upon the car.   Winter, -with its gloomy  and   rigors   indeed;   spring, with   its  sunshine and showers, its buds and , its  biossoms : summer, with   its   burning  heats; and autumn, with   its   golden  fruitage���������all have come and   gone,   so  that before we could well say  of   1897,  "It is new," it has become old. and in a  "fewuays will nave disappeared  entirely and for ever.  And so Christmas has again come  round ! Christmas ! What memories  aro awakened by the word! How the  distant and the near are., brought into  strange and striking contact! How  men's thoughts wander back over  eighteen hundred years and more,, and  in imagination yet once again stand by  the cattle ci b where was cradled in  lowliness that wondrous One, who has  been for allthese intervening centuries  sueh a power among the sons: of men,  moulding their thoughts, refining their  feelings, elevating their ambitions,  stimulating in every way their varied  energies, and awakening, as well as  retaining among their countless my-  raids, a love which many waters could  never quench, which for multitudes,  has turned prisons into vestibules of  heaven, made tortures welcome, and  death itself, even in its most repulsive  form, a"i humble servant���������nay. an  obedient s'ave, and at tlie same time  a most welcome friend. , ���������  Birthday celebrations all over the  world and in all ages there have been  many, and these varied beyond estimate in character -and concomitants.  But which-of them was ever like this  celebration to which Christmas calls ?  Which of them had ever sueh variety  in its details and yet such enthusiasm  and sameness in its essential facts ? A  few years at most have been sufficient  to make any other birthday celebration  become obsolete and disappear. Who  ean now tell when William the Fourth  was born ? Who cares when our fathers  you may. It stands solitary and alone  amid ali thu birthday festivals that  earth has ever seen. Alexander's,  Cajsar's, Charlemagne's, Napoleon's  birthdays ! What of them all ? Who  cares ? Though the dust of all these  men pent to form the bung of a beer  barrel or to nourish a thistle, who  could mind ? Their names once made  the world grow pale. Even the moral  they now teach is but poor and small.  The human tools thev cast away by  thousands in order to nave their way  to what, at beet, was but a dream, perhaps over them, certainly followed  them, and no doubt died at their command But who cares for them to-day?  Who would shed a drop of blood - for  their honor? Who ������would spend a  cent in order to tell to .others when  their birthdavs came round ?  I.  United States Senator Chandler Arraigns His Party.  Says that   It   Courts   Destruction   if  Persists in Opposing Bimetallism.  It  Mr. E. J. Field Talks.  E. J. Field, late manager ui the Wonderful mine says :   "There is no limit  to the amount of good   to , be   accomplished by intelligent organization   on  the part of mining men such as is eon-  tcrnpl.ited by the   Northwest   Mining:  Association.   There must be complete  and hearty co-operation   between   the  mine owners and   employees,   so   that  each will feel that the benefits resulting to them  arc   commensurate   with  the outlay involved on their part.   To  be effectual such  a plan   should   embrace an efficient and hospital service,  which could   be   maintained   by   the  diversion to the association's  treasury  of the monthly payments of one dollar  which arc now  being   collected   from  the wage earner and   paid   to  outside  hospitals for service which in   many  instances   are   far   from-satisfactory.  Life and accident insurance, to bo furnished at'actunl cost to members of the  association, would follow in clue course  and an endowment fund should be   established for those  who   may   pass   a  certain age limit, and  sucn   employee  ns may be pcrrnan'Jy   disabled   while  engaged in mining.   Such an   organization can readily secure   proper   and  needed legishition for the benefit of its  members.     Legislation   could   be   reduced to a minimum and an   elfectuiil  stop placed   upon   the   absorption   of  mineral lauds by railroads   and   other  corporations."  AROUND THREE FORKS.

'  A Misunderstanding.  There seems to be a misunderstanding in regard lo thc.suit of the shareholders of the Sunset company against  the company.apd R. E. Lemon. There  is no chiirge of fraud made against'Mr.  Lemon and tha suit seems to be wholly  a civil one to determine the rights of  tlie respective parties. It seems that  a one-half interest was forfeited by the  company by its failing to take lip tlie  bond and this was not secured by Mr.  Lemon,, but by other parties, with  whom Lemon had no connection. At  present the secretary of the company  is said to hold u half interest.  YELLOW SKIN AND EYES.    ".  Biliousness causes yellow skin and  eyes, tired, weary, sluggish feeling, etc.  Burdock Blood Bitters cleanses the  blood and regulates the liver, curing  all its diseases: "From a child I. suffered from biliousness and headache,  and all the money I spent for-medicine  brought me no relief.. Four bottles of  B.B; B. cured me completely, however,  and I gladly recommend it."  Mas. W. Colemak,  Toronto,. Ont.  United States Senator W. E. Chanel  ler of New Hampshire, one of the few  leading members of the Republican  party, who persists in taking seriously  the party platform pledges, professing  friendship to bi-metallism, has written  a letter to the Washing (D. C.) Post.  The letter was drawn out by a discussion arising over a hill sought to be  introduced by Secretary of the Treasury Gage, in which Gage threatened  that if a silver congress Bhould be elected in 1898 and puss a free coinnge  measure, President Mckinlej would  veto it. The letter is in part as lol-  lows :  "If the secretary of tjie treasury and  his gold standard associates will   cease  their demand for impossible   currency  legishition, congress will pass the ,ncc-  cessary appropriation   bills,   probably  take care of Hawaii  and  Cuba,   there  will not be a serious party division during the session, and there  will   bo   an  adjournment.   If Secretary  Gage continues to press  upon  congress, a   bill  the object of which he Bays is   first   to  commit the country   more  thoroughly  to the gold standard and the immediate  result of whicn is to throw doubts  upon the sincerity of the Presidents   declarations in favor of continued efforts  to secure bi-metallism, a political turmoil will arise in congress which   will  split the now united republican " party  into fragments while it will unite and  consolidate the now incongruous   opposition.     It is not feasible   to   retire  the greenb tcks,   and   there   is   more  probability that a hill will be sent   to  the president to increase theiramount.  It is not possible to secure the passage  through either house of a bill   making  the greenbacks into gold notes or authorizing bonds payable in gold.   The effort to do either will   probnbly   result  in the passage ofa bill for the redemption of the greenbacks in silver dollars  and for the   payment tof  all   United  States bonds in trold or silver .coin,  in  the discretion  ol  tho.   president, -who  wilf^bc commanded to exercise his option for the advantage of   the   government, and not for the advantage of the  creditors.  "With such an  uproar   in   congress  as these proceedings will create,  with  certain congressmen  embroiled  therein, with presidential vetoes as   threatened by Secretary  Gage  under   angry  discussion, it,\vill happen that otU business enterprises and bonds  and stocks  will be disturbed, priceB will   fall,   insolvencies will increase and the republicans will lose the congressional   elections of 1898 as disastrously   as   they  did in 1890, and beyond the hope  of a  favorable reaction in 1900,   at' which  time, therefore,-a   Bryan' democratic  president and congress will be chosen;  '..."���������Whether we arts to have one of these  results, political safety, or   the   other,  political destruction,- depends ^entirely  Hpon the course to be pursued by   Secretary Gage and those who are pressing  him forward, .namely :   The gold standard league of New York and the self-  constituted monetary conference. How  much Secretary Gage cares for tho   republican party is not known. Whether  President MeKinley. whose professions  of good faith towards bi-metallism  are  coming to a test, will  stop   his   secretary, is not known.   It is to be  hoped  ho will.   But no political situation has  been clearer than the present one is lo-  sound eyes, since the republican party  began its marvelous career of 42  years  ago.   There are times' for   all   things.  There is a time to move and a time   to  keep still, and now  iy   the   time      to  move.   It is simply absurd for the republican party   in   this   congress   to  affirmatively open'discussion'   ot   the  question and bring a yea and  no   vote  on currency legislation.   We ought to  await   the   progress   of  international  bi-inetallism, the, advent' of  business  prosperity and the filling of the treasury  by     the    normal workings,   soon   to  be seen, of the new thrill" law.     Shall  wc'wait for .these things or rush on  to  self-destruction?   President MeKinley  must decide    Will he act for his  people or for his   plutocrats?     Upon, his  answer will depend tho'events of 1898.  WriiJE. Chandler.  Washington,!). C. Dec. 18,1897.

Tlie principle dish was plum duff, but,  while both gentlemen were willing fo  admit that it was good, neither was  ready to assert positively what it was  made of. They were certain that there  were no plums in the camp but knew  thut there were plenty of beans, and it  was the general practice to substitute  the latter for anything of which they  happened to be short. However, it  was good, and they were ready to pronounce their first Christmas dinner in  the Slocan u success.  George Henderson said that he had  a very distinct recollection of, his first  Christmas dinner in the Slocan He  wii6 a member of the Carpenter creek  part*���������, which was joined late in December of'91, by old Joe Montgomery.  Among tlie delicacies in Joe's outfit of  grub which he hud prevented from  freezing was a half sack of potatoes,  and Mr Henderson succeeded in panhandling the old man out of two of  these. He declared that he never  tasteil any thing so delicious in his life  and he would not have swapped them  for the finest pluin pudding that was  ever made-.���������Slocan Pioneer.  1  A Verdict of  Exposure  Borene.  Implicating  The following 'letter and challenge  have been sent to the Kaslo Curling  Club by Secretary Fallows on behalf  of tho Sandon Curling Club. The  challenge has been accepted and a  date will bo arranged as early as possible.  ' Sandon, B. C, Dec. 20th, 1897.  The Secretary, Curling Club, Kaslo,  B.C., Dear Sir:���������Our Patron Mr.TIewitt  Bostock, M. P. h.is presented a handsome silver cup to tho club on the following conditions:  -I.   Th-titis   open   to   all   Curling  Clulis in the Kootenay.  2. That it is to be competed for in  Sandon only.  We have very much pleasure in giving your club a cordial invitation to  visitSandon and compete for the same.  We shall bo glad therefore to have  as early "a reply as possible stating  when it is'convenicut for you to come  so that arrangements may be made for  a match between all clubs  concerned.  We may say.that we have   built   a  new rink this year and for a   fortnight  or more have had splendid   ice   which  is likely to continue for the winter.  Yours truly,  W. Fallows, Secretary.  ������  Wm.  Curliun Notes.  The interest in the  "roaring"   game  continues unabated.   The regular rink  contests have taken place as scheduled  notwithstanding    the   attractions   of  other holiday festivities.

Hall, /who championed a  Sandon rink clear ol many a treacherous rock, resulting in- Waugh, with  that "winning" way of his, leading at  the 12th end by one ��������� point. Score,  Waugh'9 and Hall 8. , Someone present remarked, "Waugh was the mak  ing of a fine player."  ,  In our last issue we made a brief  refen nee to the death of Albert Ash-  toh on the ICth of December on the  K and S. R. and the finding of a jury  at Kaslo implicating Charles Borene  of Whitewater, as an accessory resulting from a scuffle. A post mortem  was made by Dr. Hartin who found  nothing to show that any serious injury had been iuflieted by Borene, and  yet the jury brought in a verdict as  follows :  Wc, the jury, lind that Albert Ash-  ton came to his death through exposure, aggravated by an assault on his  person by Chap Borene, at or near the  Victoria Hotel, Whitewater, in the  County of Kootenay, B. C, on Thursday ever ing, the 10th day of December, 1S9G.  This, *if course, led (o the arrest of  Borene fur manslaughter. We aro  aware that in their day and generation  Coroners' juries are intelligent, but  how ''exposure" could he "aggravated  by an assault" is something beyond  the comprehension of the heathen gods  to say nothing of frail humanity. If  it was exposure that occasioned the  man's death, the deadman could have  averted it by going under shelter somewhere. If they felt death was the rc-  s'Ut of injuries received at the hand of  Borene, though in conlliot with the  Doctor's, finding, they should have  put the matter that way.  As it is, it is "oxpoaure" that should  have been arrested instuad of Borene  for allowing itself to be "'aggravated"  either by an assault or by anything else.  Mr. Grimmett was called down to eon-  duct;the defence;.and doubtless after  the disposal of the charge against  Borene, ho will receive a retainer to  take up the defenee of cither Mr. Exposure or Mr. Aggravated Assault.  BOKENK HONOHAW.Y ACQUITTED.  The preliminary hearing of Charles  Borene of Whitewater, charged with  killing Albert Ash ton on the 16th of  December took place at Kaslo this  week. A large number of witnesses  was called by the crown, including the  physician who made the post mortem  examination. After the case for tho  crown was closed, Mr. M. L. Grimmett,  of Sandon, addressed the court on behalf of the prisoner, contending that  no case had been made out by the  crown and that in no way directly or  indirectly was the prisoner responsible  for Ashton's death but that death was  caused by exposure. The Magistrate  fully concurred in this contention and  without calling on the prisoner for his  defence dismissed tlie case, at the  same time stating that Kelleghan the  chief witness for the crown was apparently prepared to swear to anything.  Kelleghan is tho man who started . fo  walk to Kaslo with Ash ton when the  latter-was'frozen tr������ death and who apparently deserted him. It will be  gratifying'to Borenc's friends to hear  thai, he was honorably acquitted of the  crime with which he was charged.  Whitewater and other paying mines.  Even in 1897 the Slocan shipments will  considerably exceed the output of the  Yukon���������which can not be reckoned at  more than S3,500.000 to date, whilst in  1898 the Sloean's production will again  advance by leaps and bounds. Now,  i oo, it is being found that there is considerable gold as well as silver in certain Slocan districts, notably those on  Lemon creek.���������B. C. Mining Critic.  I  The Union S. S.

The Alberta mineral claim, situated  on Springer creek, near the famous  Howard Fraction property, can no* bt  classed among the shipping mines  tributary to Sloean City, and it now  looks as though the Alberta would  prove to be equally as valuable as the  former named mine.  Mr. Sanford came down from the  Oameronian mine on Saturday, where  he has been working for some time.  He speaks highly of the prospects of  the mine. Rawhiding began last  week, and a car will be shipped to the  Nelson smelter without delay.

On Tue?-lay evening the Methodist  church had, undoubtedly, the largest  crowd ever within its walls, many having to stand, which was very encouraging to the promoters of the entailment. The church was very prettily  decorated with eyergreen arches, mottoes, etc., and with the large platform  erected for ' the children's exercises,  gave the building a holiday appearance ; but the greatest rttraction to, at  least the little people, was the heavily  laden Xmas tree.  Although the children's parts on tha  programme were hurriedly gotten up  they acquitted  themselves creditably,  giving evidence of much latent talent  among our youth.   We have not space  to mention each part in detail, but the  decided hit made by Master Tom and  Miss Elva McMartin, two little tots, in  their song   calls fer special mention.  They were   loudly encored   to which  they responded latter in the evening.  Master Russell Hawke, too.   gave the-  audience much amusement by his coy  manner and mimicry,   though failing  to give his recitation.    Master Clyde  White in his speech   gave promise of  future   oratory.      Another    pleasing  feature was the singing of the   union  choir   under  the able directorship of  Mr. Fallows.

The Reco mine has been unearthing  a specially pleasing find for the last  two weeks at a depth of 1,000 feet in  No. 4 tunnel. It is a lead of ruby silver, about two feet in width. The. ore  is worth,from 75 cents to 51 per pound  at the-present price of silver. Yesterday the company had a specimen o*  some 50 pounds they were sending to  Montreal'with". Mr, Ribblett's collection.  This mine is now shipping twelve  tons'a day which places it fourth on  the list in the Slocan.  The pleasing feature of this mine is  that as depth i������ driven wewlth increases, which is a marked characteristic of all the established iniivs in  thin section.

In addition to; which  there are   the  Kailway bills promise to occupy a  very considerable portion of the time  of the legislature at its next session,  says the Victoria Colonist, about  twenty projected roads having already  published notices of their applications.  As would naturally be expected, the  golden northJand is the scene of operations selected by these companies, to  which severul additions have been  made this week. The Gazette contains'  tlie following four new notices, all applied for by H. E. A. Robertson :  ���������Eor a companv to construct a railway from Rossland to Robson.

We;have no objection to Mr. Bostock  : being'a! minister, and there certainly-is:  more need of a minister of mines 'than  than there is ofa Secretary of State or  a Comptroller of Customs or Inland  revenue ;~ 'but -what "we do object to  and most strenoush/Js an unnecessary  increase of $7,000 a year in ourj.already most grievous'governnientalbur-1  dens.

It is high time  the   body, politic; of .Canada  rose  in  their might  and taught   some of their  political time-servers  a lesson.    They  elect a baker's dozen yclept a cabinet,  and. that cabinet in office   think  they  have nothing   to do   but play   shuttlecock and battle dore with the finances  without sayihg-'to the electors' by your  leave.    The cause-of all   this is   that  curse partizanship that runs so high in  the ,, Canadian-people  as  to   threaten  the   financial   (ruin   of  the   country.  Here we have a net public debt, Federally,, of close on to.$275,000,000 on  5,000,000 people or'$55 per head of  our population,, and the people  never  qusstiori '.any attempt, of the.  political  demigods, to increase it at. will.   -We  repeat' that it is time to call a halt.

SATURDAY. JANUARY 1, 1898.  THE MINING REVIEW.  Remarkable Discoveries Which Point  to" a Mighty - Battle: of Twenty  Thousand Yea;s Ago-One Hundred  - Thousand Men Slain.  "Evidences of a mighty battle between  , barbaric races contending for the possession of the mighty valley of the  Mississippi many thousand years ago,  in which;60,000 and perhaps 100,000  tany-ski'nn'pd warriors gave up their  lives, have been discovered in the Indian Territory���������that w;ijd and almost  unknown portion of the public domain  set apart for the use and benefit of the  nation's wards. The initial discovery  was made by laborers employed in  grading ��������������� roadbed, for the Kansas City,  Pittsburg J'and- Gulf Railway, a few  weeks .ago, near Badlands I. T.,;'in- the  northern part of the Choctaw Indian  reservation. They were surprised to  nnd, at a;d,epth of six or eight feet, a  ���������deposit of human bones, ancient pottery and stone weapons of -^warfare.  The road at this point ran through one  of the't'erraces'of the" Arkansas ��������� river  bottom for a considerable distance,  and as the grading progressed carloads  of human bones, most'of which crumbled when exposed to the air, and great  quantities of rude battle axes, arrow  points, long, dageerlike jnvelin points  " and pieces of pottery were unearthed.  The workmen made no effort to preserve the relics, and the real value and  extent of the prehistoric remains might  never havp heen known had not Profes;  "sor EdwinWaltera.an archaeologist and  geologist in the employ of the road,'  happened along about this time. He  recognized the importance of the find  ' and has recently made extensive excavations. By digging and sounding he  has ascertained that 30 acres, most,of  which is heavily timbered, are under;  laid with human bones. His first  theory was that he had found an'' ancient burying ground in which for  many successive generations the tribes-  ���������meii had been laid to rest, but when he  ���������picked up a skull in which 13 moss  ..agate arrow points were embedded the  ..conclusion was forced upon him, that  rhe had come upon a prehistoric battle  .ground. Further excavations revealed  .other skulls pierced with arrow points  and many skeletons - in portions of  .which arrow^pqintsr-ior, stone, javelin  ���������heads were buried. .One of jUiem. wn's  ,dug-up with a stone javelin head thrust,  -.through the spine and projecting for  several inches through the breastbone.,  Scarcely a skull has been found ��������� that  does not bear the marks of violence.  The great number of stone war implements that are being fnued confirms  Professor Walters' theory that, one,, of  the most sanguinary struggles of prehistoric tjmes occurred there.  The mystery which envelopes that  strange scene of primeval conflct may  neye'r be cleared a wav; but to the mind,  of Professor"Walters the story of that  early struggle is an open book. The  17- years he has spent, in exploring ��������� the  mounds, fortifications and buried cities  of the���������vanished races of Central and  Nor'thi America have developed facts  of surpassing interest to archaeologists. All of the prehistoric inhabi  tants of North America. Professor  Walters believes, came originally from  Central America. Thirty thousand  years ago three millions of people,  brfajking.nwii.y. from the. yast pppula-  tion'tliat'for countless centuries had  occupied central and the northern portion of South America, journeyed  inorthe/j.j5tward along the coast of the  ���������Carrihbcan Sea and Gulf of Mexico and  , -.finally overspread the Mississippi val-  '-" ��������� ley. They belonged to* the race-, of  Jilaya-Toltecs, who, as is shown by  itheir monuments and ruined cities,  'had attained a remarkably high .degree  .of civilisation for that remote period.  As the centuries passed the wanderers  Jost much of their knowledge of architecture, astronomy, chemistry, civil  engineering and sculpture, in which  . the parent race had become proficient.  Instead ot buTicfing temples'arid m'onu-  . merits,, they, became . mound builders,  ."; fitfd' their rude sti uetures are scattered  throughout the Mississippi valley  and  toejregion of   thp/J great, .lakes.     Ten  thousand years passed, during   which  ���������      InVimonnd builders lost all Of the characteristics of the   Maya  Toltec   race,  ansii when, as the- successive   waves   of-  immigration, from'the Yucatan swept  ovjer the Pacific slope'and.eastward toward tne Mississippi valley, the supremacy   of  the   mound   builders     was  threatened, they fortified their frontier  against the : incursions   of : their . new.  eheniy.   The Mayas made periodic at.  . tenlpt's t'o' wrest -the rioh" valley   from  .���������- .-.tJieitgrasp,, and .many were the fierce  ���������.,"   battles'fought^1;;.',-.:- ,7  .':       .: ,  .  . Professor Walters has found a serieg  ^"ffofU'fications" extending" north   and  .south and f.icing each other.   The first  .of the prehistoric chain   of  fortifica-  .  .  :tions that mark this one time   bloody  Rattle line.,is.1found .near Omaha, Neb.  -JTrom that point it followed   down the  /iver bfuffs to' Jpvnsas1 City,  and   from  there has been   traced   southward   almost to Mexico.     The   battle, grpund  j'unt  found in   the   Choctaw   country  ''.'���������   ;form������fl link in tbis;chain , of .fortifications, and goes far towards proving the  .correctness of Professor Walters' theories.   Here, he believes,   the   decisive-  tattle of this great   international   war  .of the primative.race was   fought."   It  is in the midst bfft'rbiigh1 roiling boun-  lis  try. The Arkansas river, broad and  deep, runs east and west at this point,  its channel being against a rocky wall  on the north bank of the river, in the  country of the Cherokecs. To the  south and left of the river are two  broad terraces covered with giant oaks,  and it is the higher of rhe two, through  which the railroad runs, which contains the prehistoric remains. Upon  this terrace can easily be traced the  rudp fortifications which were evidently the objective point of the warlike  .Maya-Toltee--.  Following the topography of- the  country in his calculations, Professor  Walters figures out that the invading  army came across the level plain lying  to the west, drrvc the outposts of the  mound builders back from th'jir settle-,  ments around the great mounds that  may still be seen at some distance west  of tkc recently discovered ha til  ground to the main fortifications oi  earthworks. Here the two great armies, each possibly numbering -250,000  engaged in a struggle that should only  cease when ono or the other had beeu  hopelessly vanquished.  .  What a terrible hand to-hand struggle it must have by en,! Every acre of  thai? "dark 'and bloody ground'1 contains the ghastly remains of from 2,000  to 3,01,0 warriors, and t-liat they died  amid a~perfect rain of arrows, javelins  and stone axes the vast number of  these death-dealing instruments unearthed bear mute' testimony. Less  than 50,000 men weie killed in the  the bloodiest battle of the cival war.  What fearful carnage must there have  heen when-between 00,000 men, armed  only with bows and arrows, javelins  and rude battle axes, went down '? Little wonder thai almost every skull is  crushed_ in with a blow from a battle  axe or pierced with arrows, whose tips  had preyiously been dipped in, poison.  The,work;of mapping the earthworks,  battlegrounds and burial places along  the groat battle line is one of the most  stupendous undertaking yet attempted  by students of American archaeology  anchethnology. Professor Waltero h.is  already given.up'many years to his  self-imposed task, and expects to have  it completed in ten years.  ALMOST UNBEARABLE."'

Silver was quoted at 575 yesterday.  K-islo wants a Lardo-Duncan railway.  Tho Bank of Halifax is opening a  branch in Nelson.  A lot oi new boys' and girls' sleighs  just arrived at Clille's bookstore.  Tin. Tilot Bay smelter has 500 tons  of concentrates ready for shipment.  C. E. Steele is now liquidator of the  Ibex mine. The Ibex is one of Kaslo's  mines.  The Star shipped 120 tons oi* ore over  the C. P. R. the past week; Queen  Bess 20.  W. H Lillv goes on Tuesday, 4th of  Jan., to Slocan City, to hold a small  debts' court.  The Whitewater's late dividend of  S30,0U0 is a handsome Xmas box for  the shareholders.  The Blue Bird slide came down on  Tuesday, but did no damage. It never  is a very bad slide.  Corbin is thinking of building a railway from a point on the Spokane and  Northern to Grand Forks.  "Fighting" Joe Martin was in town  Monday, but on privite business only,  and had nothing to say for publication.  A restaurant   not   100   miles   from  Sandon   had  this very signilicant sign  out  the other day :    " 'A 'foul' dinner  ,  for 25 cents.'"  A rotary snow-plough, and which  makfs the snow fly lively, on the K.  & ?. train thu other day attracted  much attention.  The church services hist Sunday were  appropriate to theday,Christmas music  i nd sermons were given in both. Services as usual to-morrow.  Ihr Sovereign mine must be a promising institution, when the ore now  taken out iu development work alone  more than pnys running expenses.  The K. & S. train on Tuesday encountered the Lu ky Jim snowslide.  In 24 hours, however, all hands and the  cook succeeded in clearing the wav  fulJy.

Balchi ti.is gone to Tacomm  w-iere he will spend a six month's vn-  caticn.  Mr. (J. H. Winter, of tho Bank of P>.  i\. A , spent Xmas in Kaslo nnd is now  on deck again.  Mr. and Airs.  W.  A.  Mcfntyre and  daughter Ellie,  of Kaslo,   who hjient  their holidays  with Airs. W. II.  return home on Monday.  Lil  y.  'Among   ihe   ladies   who gave substantial assistance to Miss Skinner in  getting'up  the dance  were Mrs. Mc  Kinnon,   Mrs.  McDonald  and   others,  who are entitled to public thanks.  The steamer Nakusp that burned to  the waters edge had on three cars of  freight���������hay, feed and merchandise  for the Rossland district. Fortunately  there was no mail matter on board and  ' no lives lost.  Mr. Williaiiis, who kept the Queens  Lodgings here for some time, has  leased the hotel at the concentrator  near .Three Forks, and has gone out to  fit itup. He has a chance to do aL  large business there.  Mr. Riblett has four very line  , samples of ore of about 40 lbs each  from the Ruth, the Star, the Reco and  the Last Chance, respeeti> ely, now in  Mr. Harris's office that he is sending to  an eastern exhibition.  The street gaffers have been making  the welkin ring for the past week with  the one hundred and one tin horns Mr.  Harris presented to them on Xmas  Eve._ It is well lor the ears of the  public that Xmas comes but once a  year.  With the rain and thaw of the past  days, all having occasion to travel the  upper Reco trail and Cody road were  on the alert for the Noble Five slide,  which generally shows up once a year.  So far, huwever. the avalanch of snow  on the top of the peak has held fast to  its moorings.  Mr. Hunter is proving himself a  public benefactor. Every time he  goes to a dance he comes home hatles,  leaving some poor fellow a hat ahead.  To meet the denmnd he is thinking of  organizing a joint st'ick hat manufactory in the place. Nothing less will  meet the demand.  AT THE   HOTELS.  L. Ernest, Alex. Parks, Thos. Faye.  Nelson; Jas. Ryan, John McNeill, Cotlv;  A. R Macdona <!, Fred Still, [Casio; G.
