Railway broke all previous  records, and sufficient profits were derived . by the company to furnish  tlieni with  axle .grease.-and fuel till  the mill-ennhini appears. The road  has been in good shape and two  trails daily have hauled the ore as  fast as it could be loaded. -The fact  was also demonstrated that; there is  not sufficient rolling stock on the road,  though it is about the best paying*  portion of the 0.P. R. system. Eight  hundred and thirty tons in all were  shipped, the Slocan Star leading.  Two new shippers were added to the  list, the Rath and Sovereign. The  ore went chiefly to Omaha, that from  the Sovereign and Ruth and 103 tons  from the Star going to Tacoma. The  value of the ore was booked at $83,-  000.  From the initial shipment on September 13, 1894, till January 1, 1895,  the Slocan mines sent out over the  Nakusp & Slocan Railway:���  HAVE STRUCK OKE.  The Slocan Star People Tap the Lead in  the Lower Tunnel.  The   ore   vein  in   the'.'.fourths- or  lower,'���-.,tunnel of the Slocan Star was  tapped on Saturday,   and widened  out on Sunday and Monday.   It is  three weeks since the ledge matter  was struck, and the men have been  drifting through it from that time.  The vein is close to 10 feet wide and  of as high grade as in No. 1. This  has' proven the continuity of the lead-  to extreme depth, No/ 4 tunnel being  450 feet down from where the ledge  croppings were first . sliown. The  value of the Slocan Star has been  vastly enhanced by the strike, while  the whole camp has been benefited  by the proof of depth of deposit.    -+z* ��� ���������  Gold Strike Near Kaslo.

McDonald has received a.letter  from J. McDougald, formerly of Nakusp, but who is now running a saloon in .Juneau, Alaska. The latter  says business is brisk and the weather  fine. Miners are crowding each  steamer coming up fromPuget Sound  and San Francisco. An average of  200 men a week are -passing through  Juneau en route to the Yukon gold  fields. ���   : �����g.�� ���;   Still Another Producer.  - Finch & Campbell, controlling* the  Slocan Sovereign, made their first  shipment of ore from that property on  Friday. It consisted of 15 tons and  went to the smelter at Tacoma. The  Sovereign is located not far from the  Reco mine. Two tunnels have been  run, aggregating 600 feet. The ore  runs 114 oz silver and 73 per cent,  lead. There are large bodies of  concentrates on the property.  Rossland Will Thrive oh Her Surrounding Gold Mines.  S. M. "Wharton,.of the Reco mine,  made one of his periodical trips in  from Spokane and T rail creek this  week.   Rossland,   he   says,   though  quiet how, has a good future, arid it  will thrive on; the surrounding mines.  When the snow disappears indre men  will go to work on the various claims  and numerous buildings will be erected in itjie town; -Last^ fail tw'o-iiintihs  in the to wnsite were offered him for  $785, and now he has had to pay almost that for < two lots He is thinking of putting up a first-class three-  story hotel in the town.  Rossland is full of mining men and  mineral sales are frequent. Good  strikes of clean ore have been made  on the Great Western and Columbia  & Kootenayr S. Silverman, Mr.  Wharton says, has bonded about  $400,000 worth of mineral property  for Butte people, who seem determined to make Rossland a counterpart of  their own great city. This summer  will surely witness the erection of a  smelter at Rossland, which will enable the low grade properties to be  worked. Mr. Wharton is interested  in the Cliff and Hqinestake mines,  ���which American parties-Jiave'been  seeking to bond, for $50,000 and  &20,000 respectively. The. former is  a huge low grade proposition.  When he left Rossland, on Friday,  D. C. Corbin had his engineers out,  surveying for the Red Mountain Rail-,  way, actual construction on which  must commence tomorrow, or its  charter will expire. /  MINING NOTES,  Happenings    of   Interest   Among-   the  Treasure Vaults.  It is said the Alpha people have cut  wages down to $3.  The Alpha has 100 tons of ore on  the dump ready for shipment.  The shipment of bullion from the  Pilot Bay smelter is kept up daily.  I    The Le Roi is making small daily  shipments by way of Trail Landing.  Butte people seem to be coming  more and more interested in the Trail  camp.  The Evening Star, Trail, has been  sold to T. Nicholls, of Spokane, for  $2,500.  Two feet of ore has been struck on  the Gold Hill, owned by E. Welsh, on  Trail creek.  Two carloads of ore wagons have  been imported from Chicago by the  War Eagle company, Trail.  The Reco people have another carload of that ��9,000 ore from the Good-  enough lead on the way to the smelter.  months get-  The Nakusp Route.  Tia"  n-  Redskins on the Warpath.  Kews came Monday night that the  Kootenay Indians, near Rykert's, have  repeated their pranks of two years  -ago, and driven the workmen off-the  reclamation works on the Kootenay  river. The Indians assert that the  water was being turned away from  their grounds, hence the trouble.  Under date of the 5th ins'.,  master Lawrence, of the N. & S. R.,  writes The Ledge in this mannei:  On and after this date the steamboat  service on the Columbia river will be  as follows:���The steamer Lytton will  leave the Wigwam on Tuesdays and  Fridays about 8 a. m., reaching Na -  kusp about noon and Robson t-ie  'eame evening. Returning, will leave  Robson on Wednesday and Saturday  evenings, reaching Nakusp and Wigwam next day. Train will leave  Nakusp for Thrc e Forks on Sundays,  Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, on  arrival of boat. Returning, 'eaves  Three Forks, at 13 o'clock, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and  Saturdays, connecting with boat fin-  all points north and south, without  delay.  Split His Head Open.  On Friday J. Mclnnes, chief engineer on the Wm. Hunter, met with a  painful accident at Rosebery. He  was assisting in loading freight on to  the boat, and in packing a case of oil  slipped from the gangplank into the  lake. In his descent his head struck  the corner of the scow, which was  alongside, inflicting a deep and ugly  wound above the left eye. from which  the blood freely flowed; Assistance  was procured and the wound dressed.  He has been off duty ever since.  . -�����;�� :   Has Big Capital.  Jno. M. Burke and his partners  made a good stroke of business when  they secured control of the Great  Western mine on Trail creek. A big  body of first class ore was uncovered  last week, resulting in more men being put on, in eight-hour shifts.  Burke went down to Spokane and organized a company to work the property on a large scale. The concern  is known as the Great Western Mining Company, with a capital of $1,-  000,000. * ��� The company is incorporated for 50 years. The "following: trustees have been elected for the first  six months: John M. Burke, Coeur  d'Alene City; Charles K Barr, Rochester, 111.; D. M. Drum heller, of  Snokane: Charles S.  Warren, Butte,  Mont.;   H.   M.  Jones,   and  L.  of Spokane-  Stephens, James  B.  E.   Bertenneau,   of  J. A. Finch was two  ting his returns from the smelter upon  the   Wonderful   shipment, made   in  February.  Owing to some trouble about their  wages, the men on the Alpha quit  work on Friday. A new staff has  been engaged.  Though the lake shore is clear of  snow, there is plenty of the beautiful  farther back, preventing prospecting  to any distance.  Geo, Long has gone to perform the  assessment work on the Blake, a property owned by him on the north  fork of the Carpenter.  Three eight-hour shifts are sinking  on the Pilgrim, Trail creek. At 20Q  feet they expect to tap the big ore  chute from the War Eagle.  A majority of the men who were  laid off*from the mines during the  past fortnight have scattered, the Hot  Springs and Uncle Sam's domains  claiming them.  S. Silverman, representing Butte  capitalists, has purchased the Annie,  Rockingham and Grizzly claims, on  Trail creek. The claims are situated  close to the Le Roi and Josie mines,  the ledges from which Can be traced  on the former.  Made Its First Shipment.'.  Another Slocan claim has been  added to the list of shippers, and that  is the Ruth. This property belongs  to the Treasure Hill group, being the  principal one of four claims. It is  situated close to Sandon and is owned  by D. C. Clark, E. F, Starkev, J...T.  Kesler, McVay Bros., and F. P. O'Neill. There has been a great deal  of development work performed on  the group, several tunnels having  been run and a shaft sunk over 200  feet. The ore is high grade, both in  silver and lead. Fifteen tons were  shipped last week to Tacoma. Page 2.  THE   LEDGE.  Second Year  .    ��-he  g^&05ev.  Published every Thursday.  R.    T.    LOWERY,    EDITOR    AND  /���' FINANCIER.

The tapping of the ore vein in the  lower tunnel of the Slocan Star this  week has caused great satisfaction to  every mining man in the country,  and no feeling of petty jealousy will  arise to mar it. Many skeptics have  asserted, time and again that the phenomenal deposits of mineral cropping  to the surface throughout the Slocan,  would show no depth. Consequently  much importance was attached to, the  drifting in tunnel No. 4 of the Star.  Almost to the last there were to be  found those who scoffed at the idea of  the vein descending. But it has been  satisfactorily demonstrated that it  does descend.  Unquestionably the failure of the  Slocan Star people to have struck the  ledge would have given a black eye  to. the country that would have taken  years to relieve. All doubt, however,  has been removed, and renewed  confidence lias been awakened in our  great camp. The lower tunnel of the  Star is the farthest down of any of  our mines, being fully 450 feet in the  perpendicul ar. It has shown that not,  only does the lead continue in depth,  but its width and richness are uniform. It is safe to assert that what  has occurred on the Slocan Star will  be repeated on the scores of other  good properties that go to make up  the most remarkable silver camp on  the continent���the Slocan.  Newfoundland has sent adelegation  to Ottawa to arrange terms with  our  Government for the admission of that  colony into the Canadian confedera-  tion. The great objection to the  scheme is: Is Canada to sacrifice her  hold on the financial market in order  to assume control of a bankrupt country.' ���        -' . ������"     ..-...'  Next Thursday the Dominion Parliament will convene for the transaction of business. It will likely be a  short session, to be followed by dissolution and an appeal to the country.  Though brief, the session will be  fraught with intense interest to the  people of Manitoba, because of the  separate school question.  Hon. Mr. Turner, Premier and  Finance Minister^ has gone to England to arrange' for the new provincial loan of 12,000,000.

In  the world there is ^3,900,000,000,  making 9.796 cubic feet of gold in use  for money. This amount, if it could  all be gathered together, would onl y  make a block 22 feet square. We  would like to have it on tiie lawn in  front of our ofrlce, but our past experience teaches us that such a thing'will  never come to pass.  Hon. Col Baker, Minister of Immigration, is arranging for the settlement of a colony of 200 Scandinavian,1!  at Quatsino Sound. The party, which  is fairly well-to-do, purpose removing  from Minnesota, bringing their household belongings with them. They  will no doubt prove good settlers. A  similar set of rules to that of the  Bella Coola colony will govern the  new settlement. Fishing will be the  stable pursuit.  Chief Justice Davie has had another honor bestowed upon him of  late, the Dominion authorities having  appointed him Judge in Admiralty  for British Columbia. Knighthood, of  course, will follow in due order, we  presume. He, appears to have had  unusual luck while at Ottawa, for, in  addition to getting the railway belt  question settled, he also succeeded in  obtaining a promise of a provincial  representative on the Alaska boundary commission. *-. Mr: Davie seems  to have niore influence at Ottawa out  of politics than when he was premier.  But then a general election is not far  oft :,:'; .-���-' ' ���_______''������  The Kootenay district should have  a member at Ottawa to represent  it in a proper and vigorous manner.  We think tiie district represented by  Mr. Mara is too large for one man to  handle properly, and we are strongly  in favor of having it divided and seeing a candidate in the field who is  solid for silver, and who whT introduce measures that will benefit the  mining industry, without respect to  party. This is one of the most important parts of Canada and nothing is  too good for us in the way of politicians. By all means divide the district and give us the best man to be  found for the purpose.

It is interesting to read of the wonders of Alaska and the Yukon country, but they sink into disparafoment  when.one gets a letter written by a  friend in that faraway isolated territory.    A party of Livingston and Salmon river miners  left  Butte, Mont.,  some time ago for that country, under  the -guidance of Bob (friOiths, who has  been, there and knows -he routes and  the   terminus   on   the Yukon river.  ���They..', have   great   expectations   in  view, and . nromise to return in 1897  with from |i0,000 to 120,000 each.  ���      The following letter has been received by the Butte Mining and Market Reporter from a friend at Juneau,  and is tar from being of an encouraging nature regarding the possibilities  of that country..   There is ho doubt  , about the richness of the Yukon . and  the interior, but there are doubts as  to the results of the, miner and prospector ;Who'.'-. . goes : there on  small  means expecting to make a fortune.  The letter is dated Juneau, March 2,  andis as fellows:-- \  Alaska is the Mecca how, but many  will be disappointed, since this extreme border country is in no Condi-1  tion to support a boom. Waires are  low, comparatively speaking, and  only a few mines are "approaching*  development. The .Yukon is far beyond, and lie Avho intends coming  here to go to the Yukon gold fields,  will find that the trip as far as Juneau  is all sunshine, but from 'here to the  'golddiggings���about 1,206 to; 1,500  '.miles'' more���it is all 'hades;- and taking into serious consideration that the  mining season is seldom over 70 days,  yon can easily see that if one does  not strike it the first season, his name  is. "Mud" in big. letters. The gold  diggings are situated in the Arctic  circle, and it costs much money to  live there even in the most frugal  manner. There are a number in  there1 who .'are in debt to the trading  .post from $1,000 to $2,0C0 for grub  and clothing, and some of them will  never be able to get out of debt.  Now, to make the foregoing  statements to an enthusiast, who has  made up his.mind to go there, would  only lead him to believe that we. did  .-.-'not want prospectors to come here,  therefore! never give advice on the  subject, but let them come and see.  We now have three men for every  job to be had, and the immigration to  Alaska, has but barely set in. The  result will be.that within.60 days  from date the country here will be  so overrun with men of limited means  who will cut down all bcales of wa^es;  and it will be the "survival of the  fittest," since the physical conditions  of Alaska are vastly different from  other territories or countries, as all  communication -and travel here is  by water. Therefore, in order to  pack one's blankets out of the country, ho must needs swim, which is  slow traveling, in very cold water,  and most, times against a strong head  wind. Nevertheless, they are com  ing*, but whether to remain or not is  to be seen.  to Government, $25; leaving a clear  profit of $700. Gold varying from the  size of wheat to beans is saved.

I consider:������  1. That a customs tariff, if imposed at ail,  should only be for the purpose of raising- a revenue, liotior the purpose of. protection:.       ,-.     ."  2. That freer trade relations with. Great Britain and the United States would immediately  benefit tins country:  8. That under existing- circumstances and the  peculiar nature of the country mining machinery should be allowed to come in free of duty:'  4. That the natural resources of the country  should be the first to be developed:  5. That in order to accomplish this end the  country should lie opened up, the rivers made  navigable, and increased facilities for communi  catioii and transportation aii'orded:  6. That the mail and other contracts let by  the g'overnment should ��� be put up to public tender: .     .  7.

The English Statesman Scores the Monc ���  ��� ���   r/ietallists. ].  The annual meeting: of the British  Bimetallic League was held last Wednesday at the Mansion house,, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of  London. Sir Joseph Dimsdale presided.   Anions,*   those   present were  Lord,,George Hamilton, the Duke of  Fife, and Sir Donald H. McFarlane  and Charles Vincent, members of the  House of Commons.  Eight Hon. Mr. Balfour, Conservative leader in the House of Commons,  livide a strong speech in favor of the  double standard. He said the belief  in bimetallism was growing* not only  in London and elsewhere in Great  Britain, but -throughout the civilized  world. One great change is, noticeable. It is seldom now asserted that  bimetallism is intrinsicallyImpossible.;  Economists wlio placed value on the  lessons of experience, had before the in  the .irrefutable tact that while the  Latin nations maintained the bimetallic .system, the par of gold and silver was maintained for the whole  vyorlcl, despite wars, industrial revolutions and the discoyerv of precious  metals.  Another argument was that r-he  banking supremacy would be threatened by a currency change, but no  monometallist was ever able to explain how. He contended that London, as the financial centre of -the  world, would gain rather than' lose  anything by placing the currency of  the world on a sound bagis.  The third argument was very absurd: This was that a change would  depreciate gold and therefore persons'  having deposits in banks payable in  gold would withdraw them instantly.  The change threatened thus to cause  such a commercial crisis as the world  had never seen. This argument was  supported by Gladstone and Sir William Vernon Ilarcourt, Though a  panic was .probably unreasonable,  there appeared to hi hi no ground .to-j  suppose that the people would do anything soinordinately silly-as to withdraw their, .-deposits.; because the  world's, currency was going to be  placed oh a stable basis.  The fourth and strongest argument  was "Let well enough alone." But  bimetailists asked was it well enough?  People talked of the excellency of the  British system, but they find, that although the gold system obtained im  Great Britain, that silver is the currency of Hong  Kong and the Straits  T7*-  ��  Headquarters of the  NaJaisp & Slocan Railway.

To consider home interests at all in  framing* a currency, while Great  Britain was connected with foreign  countries by every commercial tie,  was a violation of the common sense  of every practical business man. He  did not believe that the common  sense of nations would long tolerate a  state of such things.
