 VOL. 6.���������NO. 52.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 13, ��������� 1903.  $2.00 PER YEAR  REPORT OF TUB SMICAN.  Compiled by Commissioner Chip-  mau and Appearing in Government Report for 1902.  The continued low price of1 lead, and  11  the very groat depreciation in the value  of tilver have had a depressing effect on  the mining industry iu thisdistrictdur-  ing the past year.' In consequence of  this, many of the mines are closed down,  or are employing a greatly reduced  forced , Development, however, lias been  fairly well kept up, and nearly all the  . claims have been represented. A larger  number of properties have been crown-  granted than ever before in a single  year in this district, the number reaching 139, while 1(58certificatesof improvements have been issued.  A new feature for encouragement is  found in the opening of a market for  zinc ores. Formerly, zinc in the silver-  lead ores in the Slocan was a detriment,  the atneltern have exacted a penalty for  its presence. Th������ ore is now being  -sought after by the American zinc  smelters, and prices are being paid for  it which will enable the shippers to  realize a profit on' a commodity they  had looked upon as not only worthless  but injurious. A, number . of mines  . notably among them the Payne, Ivan-  hoi, Slocan Star and some others, have  availed themselves of this new market  by shipping a considerable quantity of  the ore to lola, Kansas, where it Is being treate.L Preparations are also being made to remodel some of the mills,  for the better separation of the ores,  and it is reported that a number of  other mills will be built, during the  coming summer, for the proper and  more economical handling of the product.  Yet despite the low state of the markets, considerable amount of development work baa been done, shipping a  good quantity of ore, as shown by the  details of the different properties herewith.  Payne. Upon the Payne Mining  Company's property, since my last report, a large concentrator has been built  and has been running for the last live  months to good advantage, The average number of men employed during  the year waa 60, some 1,700 tons of lead  ore and.a considerable amount of zinc  having been shipped, while 1,054 feet of  tunnelling were run, with 513 feet of  winze and upraise. The mine is managed by A, C. Garde.  The St. Keverine, also managed by  A. 0. Garde, employed on an average  four men during the year, 7 tons of ore  having been shipped and 459 feet of tunnel driven, with 47 feet ef upraise and  v?inze. The operations were suspended  a short time ago.  Slocan Star. This well-known mine  has, during the year, been working  with a reduced force, owing to the unfavorable state of the metal market, the  average number of men employed being  27. The ore shipments amounted to  over 1,300 tons and there were 2,530 feet  of tunnelling driven, including upraises  and winzes.   The property is under the  ployed doing development   work,  and  for the year  at  the   Recording  office:  management of O. V.

The property is  managed by  is situated near Three Forks,, and con  sists of Monitor No. 2, Hustler Fraction,  Portland No, 2, Friday Fraction and  Keewatis. The properties are owned  by an English company operating under the name.of the Monitor and Ajax  Fraction,-Limited ; capital, ������'55,000. It  acquired the Monitor and Hustler Fraction in September  1900,   from   Messrs.  W. S. Drewry.  The Mercury, also managed by W. S.  Drewry, has employed three men during the'year; shipped 21 tons of ore,and  driven 110 feet of tunnel. The work  here has been principally development.  The Hewitt, situated near Silrerton,  has worked a force of 18 men, shipped  784 tons of ore, and run 905 feet of tun-  miners'special, 6; company, 12; company special, 2; certificates of work recorded, 408; locations recorded, 153;  certificates of improvements recorded,  94; cash paid in lieu of work, $500; bills  of stile and other documents recorded,  140; abandonments recorded, 3; water  rights- recorded, 1; traders' license  issued 44.  P������������tty, Harrop and others, for the price ! nel and 335 feet of upraise and   winze.  of .f 125,000; the other properties have  been acquired more recently. Ihe position of this group, traversed as. it is, by  the branch line of'flie C..P' R.J is' per:  haps the most advantageous of any in  thu district for cheap and rapid exploitation. Since the: beginning ef operations by the present, owners, 3,257 feet  of tunnelling and raises have been  driven, with an average crew of 22men,  and 1.620 tons of ore were mined and  shipped to the smelter producing the  following values:���������Gold 504 ozs, value,  $9,610.55; silver, 177,713 ozs., value  $91,856.03; lead, 1,119,903 lbs., value  $15,242.50; total in all-/allies$116,712.80.  The tonnage or ore blocked out and  ready for etoph'g amounts to over 3,000  tons. This ore jb an argentiferous galena, with this-characteristic, that it  carries high values in gold. The ledge  has been explored on the Monitor and  Hustler Fraction only, but it is apparently certain that it traverses the Portland, Friday Fraction-ami Keewatis, as  flout ore has been found on and below  the last named property. The ground  above the Monitor being covered with  heavy timber and wash makes prospecting for the ledge from the surface  inadvisable. The property is unddr  the management of Mr. Maurice Gintz-  burger.  American Boy. This property is  situated near Sandon, and employs 17  men. During the year 1,182 tons of ore  were shipped, and 280 feet of tunnel  driven, with 790 feet of upraise and  winze, and 300 feet of crosscut tunnel.  The property is managed by Thomas  McGuigan.  Reco. During the year 1902, shipped  536 tons of very high grade ore; the  average number of men employed was  15, and 500 feet of tunnel have been  driven, together with 250 feet of upraise  and winze, John M. Harris has managed this mine since 1892.  Queen Bess. Employed eight men  on an average, and has shipped 295 tons  of ore; 305 feet of tunnel and 434 feet of  upraise and winze have been driven.  The property is managed by W. G.  Scott.  Slocan Boy. Is under the management of J. L. Retallack, has, during the  year, employed six men on an average,  and shipped 200 tons of ore; 500 feel of  upraise and winze have been run.  Red Fox. Employed during the year  an average of 10 men and shipped 164  tons of ore of good grade. Some 675  feet of tunnel and 455 of upraise and  winze have been driven, 200 feetof open  cut worn don������ in the way of prospecting, and 300 lineal feet of sloping. This  mine is under the management of Geo.  H. Aylard.  Hartney.   Four men have   been em-  It has now been closed down for the last  two months.  The Last Chance, situated near Sandon, has shipped 249 tons of ore during  the year, and run 350 feet of tunnel,  with 250 of upraise and winze. On an  average 10 men were employed. L.  Pratt is the resident manager.  The Capella. Group, situated near  New Denver, ,011 Goat, mountain, is  managed by W. R. Wills, who is half-  owner of the property. On an average  five men have been employed during  the past year, 50 tons of very high grade  ore shipped, and 154 feet of tunnel,  with 125 feet of winze and upraise run.  The mine has been closed for the last  two months.  The R. E; Lee, with L. Alexander as  manager, employed eight men, shipped  130 tons of ore, and 500 feet of tunnel  and 200 feet of upraise and winze were  run. This property has also beenclosed.  down since the 1st November, 1901.  On the Bosun, near New Denver, W.  H. Sandiford, manager, a considerable  amount of development work has been  done during the year, 679 feetof tunnel  and 162 feet of winze and upraise being  made. About 1300 tons of ore were shipped, 500 ton* of which were zinc. The  average number of men employed waB  27.  The Idaho, W. S. Jenkins, manager,  worked a force of 12 men, and although  no ore was shipped, a large amount of  development, comprising 1,500'feet of  tunnel and shaft work was done.  Marion. ��������� Caldwell, manager. On  this property there have been two men  doing development work, and 150 feetof  tunnel have been run, in order to tap  the ore-body at a greater depth.  The Fisher Maiden, Frank Watson,  manager, situated on Four Mile creek,  has employed on an average six men,  has ahipped 120 tons of ore during the  year and run 400 feet of tunnel.  The Wakefield mines, situated on  Four Mile creek, have been worked for  the past six months of the year, and are  under lease to Mr. F. Lane, of London,  England ; five men were employed, 200  tons of ore shipped and 150 feet of tunnel run.  Tlie Dardanelles has had three men  employed for the last five months doing  development work.  The L. H. Group, situated on Red  mountain, near Silverton, has had two  men doing development work. This is  a gold and copper proposition, giving  high values in the former.  Information from the following properties Was not obtained: Rambler,  Antoine, Ruth and Soho.

U ls.  THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday,-June. 13, 1903.  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JUNE 13,1903. -  lhe political atmospheie at- the coast  is rather calm. Premier McBride is  getting affairs in shape for dissolution  and an appeal to the country. The  elections will not beheld untilaboutNo  veuiber, but many parts of the province  are preparing for the campaign. There  are ruptures in both parties as a sequel  of the late stormy session, but old sores  are healing rapidly. Many of the old  members at the coast declare they have  had enough of provincial politics and  will not seek re-election, f-'ome of them,  from their past career, the provuf'te  will be better off without, ami  their decision to stay out of polities-  paves the way for young aspirants of  progressive ideas, which is what British  Columbia needs. Viewing the two  parties it appears to us that an election  on straight party lines wou'd result-in a  complete Conservative victory. The  latter are uniting under their young  leader, Richard McBride. The Conservatives are rallying under his standard  to meet the wishes of the populace for  the formation of staple government.  Breaches in the ranks are bridged over, |  the old leaders are submitting to the  change of fate and forming into line.  The recent petty squabbles will soon be  forgotten with things of the past, and a  solid front presented when the fight is  on. The Liberals are torn by disselision  and without a leader. Martin has resigned "to preserve harmony," nooneis  appointed to succeed him, to avoid friction, and the party may go leaderless  to the polls and to defeat. Martin  is beyond question the smartest man in  the Liberal camp. There is as little  doubt on that score as in his ability to  carry tlie country. The people do not  want Martin to load and Martin himself will not be led. If another leader is  appointed Joe will start on his own  hook, and scrape up a following if only  to cause trouble, and to avert this the  Liberals hare decided to appoint none.  In any event defeat stares them in the  face.  ment of a branch here. Mr. Scott, t he  present, manager, has been as liberal in  loaning money as in was consistent for  him to be. He is merely under orders of  other officials and had to secure all investments in the interest of. the   bank.  r  Some may have found fault with his  strict business methods', and went else.-  where, but it must'be borne in mind,  that in case of loss thu manager is responsible for the amount. As a manager, Mr. Scott is effluent in every respect, his only fault being probably a  too zealous regard for the bank's welfare  in time of depression. Tne Canadian  Bank of Comiueice will shortly ope.ua  branch at the new town of Morrissoy  Mines, and at the end of the present  month the office fixtures here will be  forwaided to the Crow's Nest town. All  accounts of the. Sandon branch after the  Lstof July will be removed to Nelson.  Some time may elapse before another  is established here, there is li'.tle doubt  the field will be long unoccupied. The  Silver City is too good a point to be  passed by, and with the many rich  mines in operation, another bank will  be sure to start up.  A determined war between capital  and labor is likely before long. Tho  Western Federation of Miners intend  staiting a crusade for an eight-hour day  in   connection   with   every deparmeni  It will be seen by adyertisement in  another column the Bank of Commei'< e  will close its branch here on the 30th of  June next. Considered in whatever  light its removal will give Sandon a  severe blow-to the surrounding country. The depressed condition of mining may have something to do with the.  bank's removal, but even so there is  plenty of other business to keep the in-1  stitution going.

Toronto, Oat      _j  of mining and smelting throughout  Canada and the United States. The  federation recognizes the fact that the  greater number of mine and smelter  men are unorganized in this country  and a general canvass will be made  'shortly. The present unorganized condition of the nion, the leaders fay, wiil  not delay the strife. Already the men  are going out at the smellers in the  Western States and the fight is only  beginning. In view of tho present depressed condition of niinii.g thr< iiyhont  British Columbia, and the small number of men employed, we, are inclined  'o think the sensible members of the  union will look with disfavor on the  ! movement.' In the Slocan there are  only between tin eft and four hundred  men employed altogether, and what  benefit they would derive by. going out  in response to the edict, we fail to see.  The few mines in operation are. meiely  doing development and shipping to meet  expenses only. There is nothing to pro-  vent them closing down altogether and  the men forced to go elsewhere. We  hope to see the threatened danger  averted,'we have had enough strife in  the   province, let   us   have  an  era  of  in dealing with the producers is plainly  apparent.

Mr. Cavanaugh's letter is.the bestcita-  tation yet produced on the smelter controversy and a direct refutation of the  statements of J. L. Parker. The latter  based his standpoint- on the ground of  patriotism and that alone. Patriotism  is all right, we admire it; but when the  smetlermen themselves are not patriotic enough to help in the matter, but  grab all they can, it is time to call a  halt.  i peace.

One to be Built  Shortly in Vancouver by the lola  Company.  Thos. Jones, zinc buyer for th'c Io!a  company was in Vancouver last week in  connection with leasing' sonic properties on the coast and the building of a  zinc refinery in that city. The following from tho Province will be read  with interest, and shows that Mr. Jones  moans business in tho zinc line:  "A smelter   or   rcfinciy. cither term  being applicable in the, present sense,  for the reduction of zinc ores, is almost  certain to be established within thecity  limits of Vancouver within a very few  months.   Current  goasip  has   it that  work on the construction of the refinery  is to be commenced within  sixty days.  At any rate the parties interested are  at pteaent seeking a suitable site for the  building?.  Mr. Thos. Jones ol Sandon, ore buyer  for the Tola Smelting & Reiining Co., of  Iolo, Kansas, is the gentleman credited  with engineering tho -establishment of  the icfinery in Vancouver. At present  the zinc ores of the Slocan district are  shipped .to lola, Kansas, for reduction.  Upon tho transportation cf these ore''  there is a rate of $11.50 per Ion. It is  reported that with the establishment of  a refinery here the C. P. H. will grant a  rate from the Slocan to Vancouver lower than that-above quoted.  During the past few days Mr. Jones,  acting on behalf of his principals, has  examined <i numberof sites which would  be available for a refinery. It is not  known that lie made a selection yet, and  as he is absent from thecity ho could  not be interviewed about.the matter."  Besides arranging for the election of  a zinc refinery, Mr. Jones has completed  a deal whereby it is said he'has secured  working bonds on three promising zinc  properties located on Lynn creek, across  the Inlet from Vancouver. The claims  in question are owned by Messrs. Gideon Bower, Thomas Dunn and Harry  Abbott, the property owned by tho last  being held under a crown grant issued a  number of years ago. -The basis of the  deal is said ' to be that the owner9 be  niven a royalty on all ore mined and refined, and that'the holders of the bonds  have the option of purchase at the expiration of two years'.  The question of the location of a zinc  refinery in this city, which would treat  the ore.s of British Columbia is not a  now one by any means. It lias been  dealt with on several occasions by the  Board of Trade, but the apparent stumbling block to the erection of a refinery  has been- the tarifl'of transportation  charges on ore from the Slocan district.  It would appear that, this problem has  been solved by those interested in the  ���������'projected reduction''works. '���������  While it is the intention to treat tho  ores of the Slocan in Vancouver, the refinery would not be dependent on' that  supply, for with the development of tho  properties on" Lynn creek a reserve of  ore -'would bo-: created which could be  drawn upon in casa labor troubles interfered with the Slocan supply."

JOHN NELSON  Dated at Sandon thisSlh day of June 1903,  Too Qrent a Risk.  Iii almost every neighborhood someone has died from an attack of colic or  cholera morbus, often before medicine  could bo procured or physician summoned. A reliable remedy for these  diseases should be kept at hand. The  risk is too great for anyone to take.  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy has undoubtedly saved  the lives of more people and "relieved  more pain aud suffering than any other  medicine in ubc.
