 'J    ���������?-'  *  vol. i.  no:  3.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 26*,. ]897.  PRICE FIYE CENTS.  II IU JUBILEE.  A Great pay Nor Sandon  Over i,opo Visitors  in, the  City.  Considerable anxiety existed for some  days in the minds of the committee to  whom was entrusted, by our   citizens,  the management of Tuesday, as to  the  kind of weather we were likely to have.  ,   On account of Juno being generally  a wet month, and a'little wetter   than  usual this year, the ' committee would  "willingly hav*-   adjourned  proceedings  to another month,   if the   queen   had  .,-,-���������-��������������������������� only adjourned her coronation 60 years  ago ; but as she did not   consider   Sandon" weather at the time, there was   no  help for it but face   the  elemental, as  jj they might be,and run chances?.  Some  ���������'$ thought erecting^n aerial canopy. from  hill to hill and dispense with even  sun-  shine,if sunshine was willed, but Peter  Annance. Chas. Hunter and others who  have more confidence in   the  weather  king than some   of  frailer   humanity  said, "No, we f-gill take our chances in  tho unroofed' firmament."    They took  them, and won, for though there were a  few slight showers, the day was a favorable one.   The morning   was   ushered  in by the "booming" of cannon,   at   4  o'clock under   the  hands   o''  gunners  Black   and Cunning,   so   the  Review  scribe is advised, as he was not up early  enough to see the early expressions  of  ..loyalty, for  himself,   though   he was  awakened at the first sound of the. signal gun.   Prom the close ofthe cannon  salutations of early day  until the   arrival of the Kaslo train   at   10.30,   the  people generally occupied  themselves  in the erection of evergreens and mis-  ' cellaneous   decorations,    one    citizen  vieing   with another, until Reco Ave.  from end to end  was   one   display   of  Union Jacks, tri colors and other bunting.   Dur/'^ ihe interval CD. Hunter,  Marshal 'fi. the day, and   his   aides-decamp occupied themselves skirmishing  around getting everything   in   perfect  order for the visitors.     Promptly   on  time came the Kaslo train with, nhout  200of the youth  and  beauty   of   that  and intervening  points,   at   11.15   the  O. P. R. express -'Hived with' over   S00  from Slocan City, New Denver,   Three  Porks and other  point.*,   accompanied  by the New Denver brass band of some  14 players.   They .played well together  but would have discoursed much sweeter music with the aid   of reed   instruments.   On the arrival of tlie train the  oand and following of citizens paraded  Reco Ave., marshaled by   Sir. Hunter  ._   md associates   until   tho   noon   hour.

Commenting on the manner in which  the committee handled their part of  the programme, we may state they  gave satisfaction. Wo must also not  withhold the mention of Chief Hamil-  tion,who did excellent work in keepi g  perfect order throughout the day.  In the evening dances were held in  Spencer's hall and the new stable which  were decorated for the occasion.  In the latter place some 140 couples  .congregated where a few happy  hours were spent. The music was furnished by the Denver band, hi Spencers hall some 100 couples gathered,  ancl the music was supplied by an  orchestra.

French Capitalists Here.  L. Chouillon,   of Rouen,   Looking   Over  the Ground.  In quaint, but readable characters,  the name of'L, Chouillon, Rouen,  France," was inscribed on the register  ofthe Arlington hotel last Saturday  afternoon. This fact did not convey  much information lo the average person, but a News man has learned that  it-may turn out to be quite significant  before the summer is gone.  Mr. Chouillon informed a representative of the. News that he was making a  tour of investigation and inspection of  theKootonay country mineral resources  inbehalf of extensive monied interests  in suny Franco. He had already  spent sonic littlo time in the Rossland  and other districts, was now virtually  on his way borne. His limited time  permitted but a short stiy in Slocan  City, but he expressed himself as v���������ry  favorably impressed.

That the impressions made on ..im in  regard to this district were favorable,  even from his limited observation, cannot be doubted, as he, wtntecl   that   he  intended to leturn to Slocan  Citv   bv  > *���������      -  the 1st of August. As he will then  bring a French mining engineer with  him it is evident that he means' business, and will come with that end in  view if properties and prices are satisfactory.���������Slocan News.  An accident bc-fob Mr. Wm. Bennett,  foreman o! the Slocan Star mine, on  Wednesday afternoon last, and no one  can even imagine how it did no result  in instant death It appears he was up  in the cutting Set ween the^rd and the  4th tunnels, looking after ���������'the operations of the mine, and- by some-means  wholly unknown to, him, he slipped  and fell a distance of CO feet on the  rough and broken rocks below,-and yet  escaped from broken bones and internal  injuries, as far as hs3 physician, Dr.  Powers, at present can tell. He appears to have lost consciousness from  the moment'he slipped, expecting no  doubt, nothing but sudden death from  the frightful consequences. Though  consciousness returned soon altar he  was picked up, he appears tb have no  knowledge of what happened during  his descent, nor for some time after.  He is, of course, badly bruised externally and there are evidences of his  having struck something in his descent which broke the force of the fall  that otherwise should have had the  worst results. ' He is at present as  comfortable as his condition will allow, and the doctor thinks ho will be  around again in a reasonable time, but  of course ho cannot tell the exact'  nature of the injuries received by his  patient for some days to come.  Engineers'   Meeting.  A meeting of the British Columbia  Association of Mining.Engineer*' was  held in New Denver last j'hureday,  among others present were: H. West,  A. R. S. M.; A. J. Qolquhoun; M, E.; F.  Monctoh, F. G. S.; A. Dick, Captain  Morrish and A.M. Bucko. It was decided to affiliate with the Canadian  Mining Federation, also to make  arrangements for a grand rally and  banquet in Vancouver next January.  The association which aims to be representative of the mining 'engineers  ancl mine owners of British Columbia,  has upwards of SO members, all of  whom are'in en of standing in the profession.���������Ledge.  The  Exchange Group.  Another deal is on for the Exchange  group, Springer creek," this time the  sale is made to Alexander Dick for Sir  Charles Tupper, ��������� Ottawa,��������� at ������42,500.  These properties were, .originally  bought"from Messrs. Boifs and Isaacson, by tho Bremner syndicate. Later  they were turned over to fhe syndicate,  represented by B. C. Campbell John-  si on, which failed to make (he first  .payment. It no*w leoks as if the property were about tp be placed in the  hands of a Cai.adian company that has  capital, and will work it. An extension of time has been allowed the  Bremner syndicate from Jun . G to July  15.���������Ledge.  Here and There.  T. A. Garland has bought a three-  quarter interest in the townsite of Anaconda for ������10,0ii0.  Kaslo beat Rosslanu on the home  grounds on Saturday last, in a score of  S to 1 at base ball.  The $8,000 opera house at Trail is  rapidly ncaring completion and will be  finished by July M. ,>  It is rumored that IheC. P. R. repair  shops at Vancouver will be removed to  Revelstoke at an early date.  Again on Sunday Kaslo base bnbists  beat Rossland, at Kaslo] in a score of  10 to 9 at the ou.l oi 9 innings. .   ,  Mr. R.

The United States government has  put a revenue' cutter on the upper  Kootenay river The steamer is called  the Wild Horse, and is well adapted for  the service required of her.  The Mineral Cit\r Townsite Company , with a capital of S21,G00, was  registered at Victoria last week. The  company is organized to purchase the  townsite six niles up Cariboo Cr^ek.

Acting Government Agent Gocpel is  .the,authority .lor the statement that  work will be commenced in a few clays  on tho New Denver-Throe Forks wagon  road. The. cost of the road will be met*  chiefly by public subscription.  Harry Taylor, of somewhere, and  Mrs. Kcrciieval, of Spokanc.have been  creating quite a sensation around Ross-  land,Grand Forks and elsewhere as Mr.  and Mrs. Taylor. The result of the  sensation is thu Mrs. has returned to  Spokane and detectives are hunting for  the "Mr". '  J. J. White, the pioneer miner of the  Boundary country, and owner" of the  Boundary Falls hotel was killed on  Friday last week by falling from, a  wagon drawn by arunaway team. In  the early days of Portage la Prairie  "Jim" kept a hotel there.  Galena Has been pretty busy for  some days past. First came the telegraph liners who struck two lines from  Arrowhead going south. Next followed a gang of choppers to clear 40 acres  of Rosenheim townsite which, with the  40 already cleared, will make a good  showing ; this contract has been taken  byll. Cossar,of Hall'sLanding. To-day  Genelle's tug and scows landed a cargo  of horses which, with a large force of  men, will be used in taking out timber  here where thev have limits containing millions of feet.  Communication.  To the Editor of The Mining Review :  DiiAJtSm,���������It will, f think, be generally''admitted that the Diamond  Jubilee- celebration held in Sandon  wis, with one n.-table exception,-a  great success.' On the whole the various committees deserve praise for *he  manner in which tiie affair was carried  out. But I think a m'ost deplorable  mistake was made in allowing the  base ball game to supplant the lacrosse ganfe, and I think i������o for several  reasons.  As 1 understand the matter it was  arranged some weeks ago with the  "joneral committee that the Slocan  City lacrosse club should scud a'team  here to play our club. The team came  and were the guests of the committee  and of the people of Sandon generally.  It was only on the'21st that it was settled that the Kaslo base ball team (a  lot of paid, professional, imported  Americans) should plaj* a scratch  team from Sandon' for a large; purse  (good money carried away) and expenses Without more, then it would  appear tome that the lacrosse teams  should have been given tlie precedence, ns the game was the first arranged and the players were amateurs  and '.uu* own citizens. Further, when  wo consider the nature of the holiday  and that, lacrosse is the national game  of Canada, the action ,of the sports  committee seems incomprehensible,  ft must not be forgotten too that large  numbers of spectators went to see a  lacrosse'match, and instead had to pay  to see a very indifferent garni- of base  ball. I hope next-year when we celebrate it will be borne in mind that  wo arc in Canada, and that lacrosse is  the national gainc, aiid not base ball.  To say the least^the Slocan City lacrosse club is entitled to a humble  apology from tlie' committee for the  way it has been trcrtcd.  c  ' Cakadiax.  Oyer  GHUGIRT FLOODED.  60 Families Driven . Oat  of  Their Homes.  A Cloudburst and   Continued   Rain   the  Trouble.  On June 17th Calgary was visited by  a very disastrous cloud-burst, whic'i  with the heavy rains of the previous  days caused the Bow and Elbow rivers  to overflow their banks. The Elbow  rose six feet in the night. The fiats  ol the city were soon submerged and  had it not been for the prompt action  of the fire brigade and the Mounted  Police, who valiantly worked all night  with teams and wagons removing the  residents, serious losses of life might  have resulted. As it is many of the  citizens are heavy losers by the destruction lo property. The C. P. R. is  a heavy loser as miles of track and  several bridges were washed away.  Trailic was entirely suspended for a  time, but soon the company by making transfer sent tlie detained travellers on their respective ways. In consequence of the washouts mails from  the east have not reached the west for  about a weak.  ���������A m SLOGAN DEAL.  Idaho, Alamo and  Associated   Properties  Sold to a Scotch Syndicat.e.  New Denver, Juue21,���������An important  meeting of three big companies is being .held here lo-c'-v-y, which it is understood will result in thc^transfer of  some of the best known "properties in  the Slocan country. Tlio companies  interested are the Adams Mining company, the Slocan Mill company au.l  the Slocan Tramway company. It is  understood the property of these companies, and the Cumberland Mining  company, as well as the control of the  Idaho mines, will pass over to the Scottish Colonial Gold-Fields Co., Limited,  Edinourg, Scotland, represented by  Mclvcr Campbell, of Vancouver, B. C,  and London, early next month. The  consideration and terms are not made  public,-but it is said to be in the neighborhood of $400,000. Among those representing the companies arc^'W. H.  Yawkey. of Detroit; Frank Con, of Du-  luth; and Captain N. D. Moore,  The properties sold are : The Almo  group, consisting of these claims: The  Almo, Twin Lakes, Ivy Leaf, Clarence,  Hampton, Victory, one half ofthe Continental and the Morning.  The Cumberland Mining company's  holdings: The Cumberland, Daisy,  Eastern, Thistle and one half of High  Ore.  The Idaho Mining company's properties : .Controlof the Idaho and St.  John mineral claims.  The Slocan Mill companies'holdings:  The mill site, a 100 ton concentrator,  ore bins, water rights on Hows on and  Carpenter creeks, lesidenccs, office  buildings, etc,, located on the Canadian  Pacific track, one mile west of Three  Forks.  The Slocan Tramway, company's  property: Seven thousand feet of  gravity tramway and terminal,' with  right of way, and three mineral claims  ���������The Current, Tramway and Cedar. -  Spokane Spokesman Review,  LARGE 60LD STRIKE.  Nelson, June 21.���������The most important gold strike ever made in the Nelson district is reported from the Granite claim, owned by J. P. Sweclbe rg  and adjoining the Poornnan group on  Forty-Nine creek. It appears that Mr.  Sivedberg has done about $1,000 worth  of work on' the cl'aim, principally  ground sluicing, in the hope of finding  tlie ledge, and his efforts ha-c proved  successful. The ledge was sluiced clear  to the boundary line of the White, one  of the Poorman grouo, and it is said  to be a solid five-foot vein of ore, free  milling and very high grade.  The same ledge runs through the  White and the strike of Mr. Swedberg  establishes the fact tnat the ledge is  continuous and an extraordinary large  body "of ore. The White mine has  about 400 or 500 tons of ore on its dump  and it is a much higher grade than any  ever found inYnc Poorman. The latter  mine is being worked steadily ancl the  tunnel is now in 28 feet.    .  A carload of ore from the Howard  Fraction on the Slocan lake will leave  to-morrow for the Nelson smelter.  Castle. One can immediately see the  striking resemblance it bears to the ore  from the Porto Rico, -which is very  rich in both gold and copper.  , The castle ledge shows three feet of  solid quartz, carrying iron pyrites and  copper. The copper is a rich chalco-  pyrite. Two assays made here in Rossland show S42 and S44. ���������, The copper  runs about K> per cent., the remainder  of the value being in gold with a little  silver. The quartz brought in by Mr.  Massam is very rich looking. Mr. Mas-  sam says the ledge appears to be the  same as that from which the very rich  ore is being taken on the Porto Rico.  The owners will immediately sink 30  feet on the ore body.   Rossland Miner.  Condensed   for   Busy  People.  HANSON   NOT   INDICTED.  JAIL, ESCAPE AT NELSON.  Woods and McDonald Succeed in Gaining' Their'Liberty...  Nelson, Jnne 24.���������-James Woods, who  was charged With the murder of Samuel L. Wood, near Nelson; last October,  and James McDonald, accused of the  burglary of a cigar store here, escaped  from jail to-night. ��������� Woods succeeded  in grabbing Constable WiRearl's pistol  from hini when bis back was turned  and then at tho point of the gun forced  him into a'cell. Ho also locked up a  number of trustees. Government  Agent Goep'el saw the men jumping  over the fence and gave the alarm. A  large number of citizens are hunting  them. Chief ol'Pr'ovincialPoliceHussey  offered $250 reward for their capture.  The assize court is in session and true,  bills have been returned to-day against,  both of them.  Alleged Slayer of John  Dyer a Free Man  Once More.  Nelson, June 24.���������The grand jury did  not find a true bill against James Man-  son, charged with the murder of John  Dwyer. Ethel Clayton was acquitted  ofthe charge of enticing girls underage to disreputable resorts.  It will be remembered that James  Manson was committed for trial on December 23 by Justice Townsend for the  murder of John Dwyer on the night of  December 12, at the Club restaurant on  Spokane street. Although the evidence  produced at the coroner's inquest  showed that Dwyer died from laceration  of the spleen, it was as much as proven  that if it had been done by Manson,  who had quarrelled with Dwyer earlier  in the day, the man could not have  lived.as-long as he did.  Manson, who was foreman at the Red  Eagle, has many friends in Rossland  who will be pleased to learn that he has  not been indioad. It is expected that  he will return fo Rossland at once.  Slocan City News.  Steps have been inaugurated by the  editor of one of our papers to establish some form of local government for  the town, and a meeting called to dis  cuss the ways and means to carry out  the project. . 'The proposal is that a  board composed of property holders  and bona fide citizens of the town shall  be elected at a public, mi eting called  for the purpose, and after such election this board shall bcr sub-divided  into committees who will be charged  to watch tho interests of the town as  regards fire, sanitary arrangements,  ancl to look to the general enforcement  of the provincial statutes in the community. The experiment, for experiment it is as far as the Kootenays arc  concerned, will be looked upon with  interest, by all towns that have "ot yet  reached the stage that would warrant  asking for ineorpoiotion.  H. P. Christie, who has been acting  as provincial constable at this point  for the last two months, has received  official notice of his appointment to  the position of mining recorder for the  new division of Slocan City. The  town will be the official center of the  division, and a record office will be  erected office will be erected or purchased almost immediately. Mr.  Christie's appointment is a popular  one with the eiti/.ens and mining  men.  Nearly 60 Companies Organized.  W. C. Archer, who returned from  London last week after an absence of  over four months, said in reference to  the London market : "I believe there  arc nearly GO companies registered in  London for operation in British Columbia, and it seems to bf> quite a general  opinion that there will he a very active  interest taken in London in British  Columbia mining-properties this fall  or tho coining spring.',  A Another Ricli Strike.  the  the  A rich strike has been made on  North Fork of the Salmon river on  Castle, one of a group of six claims  known as the castle group, situated  near the well known Porto Rico group,  which bitter-is unden* bond to W. H.  Corbould.s Canadian Pacific Exploration company. Tho claims belong to  E. F. Massam, P. Quinlan, J.R.Massani  and others, of Rossland. E. F. iMassam  brought, to the Miner office yesterday  a quantity ofthe quartz found  on   the  Lemon Creek News.   ���������  The Cold Blow will commence work  this week. ' It is considered a very  valuable property and a few week's  work will make a big showing. This  group is being handled by a very strong  company.  Tho Black Prince groupe wilt put a  large lorcc of men to work as soon as  the road is completed up Lemon creek.  A great deal of work^has beeu clone on  this property with splendid resubs.  Manager Shaw of the Queen Dido  group has at present a couple of men  on his property. He is anxiously  awaiting the completion of a new road,  like many others. It costs 10 cents to  have stuff paoked up to the group at  present.  Work is be rapidly pushed on the  Black Beis and B. C. D. W. McGregor,  mining engineer, has the work in  charge. He has every reason to believb  that they will come to the front before  before very long.  The White Rose is a claim that is  heard of a great deal at present, It  has, like a great many claims on  Lemon creek, made big progress during  its first assessment.  Election of Officers.  The first annual meeting of the stock  holders of the Selkirk Mining and Milling company was held at the office of  the company here on Thursday. The  following officers were elected : President, J. A. Smith; vice-president,  Thomas Brown; secretary-treasurer,  W. W. Fallows; directors, M. A. Lene,  F. J. Golden, G. H. Wright and M. L.  Grimmett. Next week wc will give a  description of the property of the cora-  pany.  Noble Fiye Directorate.  The directors of the Noble Five Min-'  ing and Milling company met at . the  office of the company in Spokane last  Tuesday and CD. Rand, of Vancouver,  was elected director, vice .1.. F. Cutler,  resigned. F. J. Hoffman of Spokano  was elected secretary, vice J. F. Cutler.  This change in the directorate is due  to tho recent big change in stocks, Mr.  Rand, it will be remembered, having  purchased over 200,000shares of Noble  Five stock within a period of five  weeks. :  Annual School Meeting.  Sandon had its first annual school  meeting this 'morning. Mr. M. L.  Grimmett 'explained the. law  on the election of trustees when .1. A-  Smith was chosen for three years, A.  Crawford for two, and J. H. Lilly for  one. As there was no other Inudness  before the meeting a prompt adjournment followed after a fifteen minute  session.  The Noble Five is shipping a car of  ore daily  W. Benncr has a half interest in ��������� the .  Sophia on Milford creek now.  The Argo is getting ready for a second shipment of ore shortly.  A gang of six men went out the  other day to do development work on  the Silver Plume.  J. L. Peafsoll and H. Williams have  left for the Illicilliwaet country to do  development work.  H. R. Cameron an insurance man  of Nelson, and J. H. Brock in the same  line in Winnipeg aredn town.  It is given out as a ' fact that'the  Pilot Bay smelter and. belongings are  to change hands on the 1st prox.  The Three Forks concentrator began  operations on Monday with several  men employed. They have consider,  able work ahead.  Three Forks is coming to the front  again in mining finds. G. Petty has  fonnd a ledge five feet wide, close to  the surface, that shows 1,100 ozs. of  silver to the ton.  M. J. W. Sutherland, from San Francisco, who is examining the resourc������s  of Kootenay for some Californian investors, was in town on Thursday. He  will visit the Lardeau and Trout Lake  districts.  Dan. McNeil representing a Colorado  syndicate at Cripple , creek is in the  city looking up investments. He says  the English capital invested there is  wending its war t0 the Slocan country  as fast as it can.  ��������� A tunnel 215 feet in length is now  being out in the Selkirk, and seven  men'are working in the shafts. .There  is"a well defined ledge containing car-'  bonate of ore, and the prospects in all  respects arc most promising.  The shipments from the Slocan Star  continue steadily, and the ore is if  anything improving. Of the concen-,  tratcs the results are 80 oz. of silver  and 65 percent, lead. The company  now have 95 men at work in the mines  and 15 at the concentrator. They are  shipping regularly 20 tons per. day of  concentrates and crude ore from time  to time as circumstances call for it.  i  John Thoma3, of Rossland. local  manager.of the British Columbia Exploration companyy of Tacoma, Wash.,  yesterday purchased for $20,000 from  Schultz & White, the Ottawa^ near  Trout Lake, in the Lardeau country.  Joe Young has just returned from an  examination of the property and it is  upon his recomnadation the purchase  ' was made. The B. C. Exploration company was organinized last fall and the -  Ottawa is the first property it has purchased.���������Rossland Miner.  Wm. Karr, of this town, and associates, appear to have made a fortunate strike on Lemon Creek, 2 miles  from the new townsite. They struck  a locality that has six distinct ledges  parallel on the side of a hill of granite  and limestone.   Surface indications in  4 arc g'dena and ruby and gold in the  other two. The ledges vary from 6 to  22 inches iu width. An assay has  been made showing  $48 in gold  and  5 oz, of silver. Tho company have  done the necessary work so far to conform to the law, but are undecided as  to their future course.  Tfre Cameroflian.  \  One of the most valuable properties  on Lemon creek is that of the Cameron-  iau Gold and Silver Mining Company.  As the principal owners and officers of  the company are Sandon men, a brief  description of this property may not  be out of place. The company owns  two claims, the Cameronian and Had-  norian situated about three miles from  the mouth of Lemon creek. On the  Cameronian is a very strong ledge with  a pay streak of from three to five feet  of rich, gold and silyer ore. A large  number of assays of the ore show an  average assay of about $100 in gold and  75 ob. silver per ton. Some $2,500 have  been spent. in development and at  present there are on the dump about  70 tons of ore awaiting shipment. The  company do not intend shipping any  until a trail has been built up Lemon  creek from the C. P. R- crossing; it is  reported that the trail will be built at  once. Development work on the property will bo pushed ahead with rigor.  Those who have examined this property say that itis bound to become.one  ofthe big mines of the Slocan. . From  what we can learn we jndge that an  investment in the stock of this company will prove n profitable one. The  president ofthe comyany is J.R.Cameron and the Secretary-Treasurer, M. L.

year   in. the   United,States   costs but
$25,1003 year,   a building .need not

skilled labor. In fact the mintage of
our entire 'mineral product need cost
but little more, than sve are now paying Great Britain'for the coinage of
silver and copper only.
With smelters and other refining institutions now in operation in British
Columbia, and die march of progress
indicating a largely increased mineral
output and the improvement of machinery to perfect our bullion, the
keener the necessity-for mintage appears oh the. surface.    ���
There are two mints in Australia,
some in India, Calcutta and Bombay;
and in Canada where our constitution
gives us full control over our own
coinage, there is none.
Paper currency is not a currency at
all but merely a promise on the part
of the government and the banks'using
it, to pay the standard currency of the
world when asked to do so. Only
nine countries in the world have less
silver than Canada, and this country
. has'not one-fourth of what, is'required
for actual use, a statement the banks
of this province at least will fully verify if asked for an opinion on the subject. Canada has with all its mining
resources but $t.03 in silver for every
head of its population, and but about
$3.00 in gold, while its total currency
��� is but $9.16 against $24.00 in the
United States, $20.00 in Great Britain, $35 in France, $63 in the straits
. settlements   and   $28     in    Belgium.
Commerce   must be   considerably, re-
'   .   stricted while  this condition of things
"remains.   . ,
The   right to- establish   a   mint   in
Canada (and it should be established
in : British Columbia   where the  minerals are found)   is not denied.    The
profit it would be   to the   country   if
.established   is   readily apparent  from
:   -the figures we have quoted,   the neces-
. -sity for it is found   in all   the commercial   oppositions of .the   day, and   yet
them) give' more of their ',time' to
wrangles over appointments to office
than such inatters.' of;such grave ,im-
porjance to the1 country.   ,
Whether the object   sought by the
Federal  government will    really.:1 be
gained   or-not' in the  recent  Mining
act.   is a   question   future: operations
alone can decide. : - As the result, of
his recent visit to this country,Minister
Blair, said in the House the other day
the   mining; interests   of British Columbia were all right,   and   the bill "to
.enable'-.,the government,   if they see,fit,
to do so, ,:to.Timpose an export duty on
ore is. to fostcr'smelting  in -this" country..' The   presumption' is that  if exporting   is-, weighted'* with, financial
burdens,' smelting will have tq, be done
here.'  ,  Weil,- another   step   towards,
building up the industry i.* the free importation Of smelting  and.concentrating machinery.-    Instead of   forcing a
horse to drink a certain water, a better
plan   would be   to give him  water he
will like to drink,   when, he requires it.
No .doubt B. G. miners, would prefer
smelting in this country, if the smelted
article''cost'them; Jess-than tlie exportation of ore, <to smelling at   American,
institutions.    The   intentions   of/the
government,, in ^'taking 'to   themselves

A Sawmill for Lemon Creek.
McOircgor & Co. have recently closed
a deal for a saw and shingle mill to be
erected at the Lemon Creek townsite,
for which they arc agents, with the.
Lemon Creek Sawmill. Co., Mr. Bas-
com, recently of Michigan, as manager.
The mill will be ready for turning out
lumber within 60 days and will have a
capacity of 15,000 feet per day. A
clause in the articles of agreement
provides for a basic rate of ��12.50 per
thousand for rough lumber. This was
done to protect the ' interests of the
prospective builders. Mr. Balcom recently inspected the mill site and pronounced it one^of the best he had ever
seen. The timber, which is im mediately surrounding the town site, is of
the best possible quality. The trees'
are large and hold their size to the top
branches, the ground being free from

Bostock much praise in connection
with the . construction of the Crow's
Nest Pass railway, and the early construction of smelters in the country.
We believe he has been very active in
these matters, but why should that entitle him to special thanks. The one
great trouble is- too many of our representatives spend much of their time
looking after their own interests and
berthsTor relations, while not an .inconsiderable number are merely chips
in porridge���voting machines only. If
Mr. Bostock has simply been doing
his duty he is entitled to recognition
only, and not to special thanks or

The Home-Payne people w 11 h.iil.! :t  trail from the Broadview down to the  North Fork, about two miles above  Ferguson, to the site of th:* coMC.-titra-  tor that is to be built this summer.  James Black, the well-known hotel  man of New Denver, was in town this  week. He was so strongly impressed  with the future-possibilities of the city  that he invested in six lots, taking an  option on three n*ore ; he will build as  soon as lumber can be had. Hejjsays  Trout Lake has all the ear marks of a  good permanent town. ���������  Robt. Jamieson, M. 13., is in town representing a strong syndicate of Montreal and Scotch capitalists, organized  to devf lop the Queen of the Hills group  1 east of the Silver Cup. They will  build a trail down to the lake, a distance of about four miles. Should the  development justify, a tramway will  will take tho place of the trail. Mr.  Jamieson is accompanied by his wife  and: will make Trout Lake   his   home  " for the summer at least.  The chief points of attraction ' for  prospectors are the south side of the  lake'from tlie Glacier down to Tenderfoot and Canyon Creeks. Some good  finds have been made on" Tenderfoot  running well in gold. On the north  side of the lake John Stauber has located some claims running high in silver  an\������coppcr. Between the Orphan Boy  Summit and the head of the South  Fork, White, who located a claim in  that vicinity, is reported  to have sold  it to  American parties for $15,000,   lu  per cent. cash.  j!M  *s5P*  v/'C- ""     .-V\ \-\. **j~  ^"....'y^%>'^-S'  CHAPTER   IV.  If Sir Rudolph did not like his wife,  ���������amy did he not "eaye her ? If sho had  A Serious Mishap.  Two weeks ago three young men left  New Denver on a prospecting tour in  the neighborhood of the glacier across  the lake. Monday one of them came  to t������wn and reported thai; one of his  companions, Harry Hewer, who, prior  to   the closing  of the   Grand Central,  ���������was employed ns busman for the hotel,  had on Sunday,  the 13th,  cut   his  leg  with an axe and wis in a critical condition as mortification had set iii.    At  once   a party  of six   men   started   to  bring  the  unlortunate lad   out of the  mountains.   Tuesday evening a signal  fire   was   seen   across  'the   lake,  and  two   bo its   were   sent   across.      Tlie  fire was started by one  of   the party  who   had come nut. of   tho mountain  in advance of   t-fflwothers,   who were  yet lost  in the tlnckct.   The launch  Denver was sent over to   be   on   hand  when the party should   appea". '   The  trip down the steep mountain  sido   in  the dense thicket in the dark of night.'  with the injured man on   a   stretcher,  was a very slow one, as a trail   had   to  be cut most of the way, and it was not  until three o'clock   Wednesday   morning that the lalce shurj was reached. ���������-  Tho party had had   nothing   to   eat  since 10 o'clock Tuesdiiy in urn ing  and  they were famished  '  Tho   boat   soon  had the rescuers and- rescued   on   tlie  Denver side.    Hewer was taken to the  hospital and hi& injured limb   di\ssed.  It was found to bo'hot as serious as reported*; a small cut at the ankle  badly  inflamed.   Howcv r, the insignilie.inee  of tho injury does not detract any from  the brave effort of the lvsjuing   p n-ty.  ���������Ledge.  ���������  FIVE MEM KILLED.  A Mud Slide on  Does  the C.

I saw. in a moment that the  sound was caused by the tapping of  a small spray of ivy against the window-glass. Having found this out, I  wont back to rouse and reassure her.  She lay just where I had placed her,  her blue eyes open and full of inexplicable terror.  "Have you sent it away '!" she ask-  -<1,   In   a   horarse   whisper.  "There is nothing to send away,  Lady  Culmore,"  I replied.  "Nothing !" she cried. "Aro you  quite sure ? Nothing at all ?"  "No. "What could tliere be outside  your window ?.",  I ffegan to wonder If her brain was  afiocted. It was tho only possible explanation of her conduct.  The- wind had been silent for some  lew minutes. Then it rose again���������the  same faint sobbing round tho window,  a sound as natural as any could be,  out evidently fun 0f speraatural dread  to her. She sprang to her feet and held  up her hand again.  "Listen!" she cried.  "It is nothing, Lady Culmore," I said,  speaking firmly,. for I thought that  perhaps this was but a severe hysterical  attack. "It is nothing, Lady Culmore,"  i repeated. "Do you understand? It Is  ������()y*t}le wailing of the wind."  -Ah, no!" she said. "That Is what  t sounds like to you. Do you know  ���������vnat ^ is in reality? It is tlie crying  oi a little child, quite a little child,  standing there. Hark! Do you not  hear it now?"  There was certainly some faint resemblance to the cry of a child, the  ���������vail of an infant in great pain. I  should never have thought of it but  tor ��������� her.  "Lady Culmore,"  I  said,  "you  must  listen   to  reason,   you   must   bo   calm.  ���������*��������� his is foolish, hysterical, nervous nonsense!    Come with me to the window.  Look and listen for yourself."  She wrung her hands.  "I dare not!" she cried. '  "You must," 1 said.    "It is the only  way m   which  you can be  convinced.  Come." i  I took the white hands in mine and  compelled her to .cross the room. I  arew aside the blinds and hangings,  opened the window, and made her look  "Y������u see there is nothing," I said.  Look at the moon, the water and the  trees."  She turned away with a deathly shudder.  "I must have dreamt it then," she  said.  "What did you dream?" I, asked  I dreamed that I heard some one  tapping at the window, and I awoke In  a great fright. Then 1 heard the wailing  oi a child, a pitiful tiny voice sobbing with the faintest ^reath, and the  sound came from the window. I went  there and rew aside the curtains aa  you have done now, and I saw���������oh,  UUU Heaven would darken my eyes  for cveimore!-I saw a tiny child stand-  -���������18   ihere,   dressed   in   a   little   white  riv-l'iT' I* a,"d he was raPPins with a  iccwe little hand on the window-pane,  i* or one moment the baby eyes flashed  into mine, and I knew that if he came  in _! should  fall  down dead."

"You need not be frightened, Lady  Culmore," I said. "The wind is alivays  rough in March. You are afraid- of  it.    I   think   it   beautiful."  "It is not the wind that I hear in  my room," she whispered. "Oh, come!"  Without another word ,I took the  taper from her hand and'went with  her. When we reached' the room  where Lady Culmore slept, I' found  that all the lamps were burning. She  laid her hand upon my arm.

The dying wail of the wind was foi?  lowed by a soft tap against the window-glass, so soft, so indistinct, that  I could hardly hear; it.

It was nearly ,tour  months since I came, and there was  the same gloom,; the same constraint,  the same wretchedness in Sir Rudolph's  home! but by this time I had lost all  desire to leave the place. , All my affection and Interest, all my thoughts, were  centered In the baronet aiid his wife.  , There was nothing very mysterious  about Sir Rudolph, except the way in  which he lived.

And ' yet, even  if it were so, that was no solution to  the mystery of Sir Rudolph's conduct.  A man who loved his wife would but  study her the more for any misfortune  of that kind.

I knew this time  that it was Lady Culmore. She was  standing outside, with the same terrible fear on her face.  "I want you, Miss Forster,'" she said.  "Come with me;" and, as a matter of  course, I went; -  She carefully closed the door of her  room',' plaqed the wax taper on the  table, and turned to me.

"Quickly," she said���������"tell me  auickly! what do  you hear?"  "Nothing;" I replied. "There is not,  a sound; even the wind is still."  She struck.her hands together with a  passionate cry.  ���������'You must hear it! You say 'No'  to ,calm me.

pretty good guarantee that they will
be.well up,to the mark and over it.

Some of our sportsmen were not satisfied with the results of the races on
Jubilee day, and had to extend the
glory over the following day i:i a
couple of matches. Lot Willis' sorrel
horse of, Bear Lake, was pitted against
Black's grey, and won after a good
tussle. Next came a match best 2 in 3
between the sorrel and Fletcher's
when the sorrel, ag.i in won, taking two
heats and $25 we believe. It is said
a few hundred. dollars changed hands
over (hese matches.
Post Master Atherton is erecting a
stene and brick warehouse at the rear
of his premises, that when finished
will be lire proof and will to some ex-!
tent compensate, for the difficulty in
getting proper insurance at reasonable
rates in Sandon. When this is completed he will double the capacity of
the present post of lice, and if' hy that,
time we can only get a daily mail and
more help in the office most of the
grounds for present complaints will
have been removed.
Tho Value   of Salt. ��
Common salt ground to a fine powder
will remove the stain of hard-boiled
cssa from silver spoons quicker than
anything- else. Coarse salt, however,
will scratch them. A little salt will
remove Hie stain of tea from cups or
of   \ inejrar  from   table   linen.
&:-,'*. and water will clean willow or
rr.lta.n furniture and wil keep matting
from turning yellow, as it will if wiped
olf with clear water. After sweeping
a carpet which is somewhat fade-d,
scatter coarse, damp table salt over it,
und brush -it "vigorously. A fresh supply of dust may be extracted from the
carpet in this way and the faded coiars
will be perceptibly brightened. A handful of salt, aided to a tu.bfu-1 of water;
in which colored cambric and other
cottons are soaked before they are
washed, will prevent the colors running. Rinse the goods in salted water
and dry them as rapidly'as possible.
Do not use too much salt, .however, .ia
it hardens the water and prevents the
dirt coming out as well as the color.���
