A more thoroughly representative  audience has seldom -.gathered:' together in New Denver than that which  presented itself at the first'public entertainment given by the Ladies' Aid  Society in tjie church, Monday evening. Certain it is, too, that fewer  assemblages ha.ye gone away better  pleased with the entertainment provided. A number of persons were  present from Three Forks, -Silvertori,  Rosebery, and other outside points.  The entertainment partookof the nature of a pink ..supper; followed by; &  regular concert programme. The  spread of good things was choice and  varied, while the idea of its nature  was carried Out in the decorations of  the room, --tible, and the costumes of  the fair waitresses.  Immediately following, came ythe  programme, with Rev. A. J. Gaebel  as chairman, and Miss Estabrooks at  the organ: Violin solo, Mr. Reider;  instrumental, Miss Estabrooks; reci  tation, Mrs. Reider; solo, "Thy Sentinel Am I," C. E.

The programme was far above  the average a'nd the participants came  in for a liberal allowance of applause.  Votes of thanks were tendered the  band, for serenading the company;  to the ladies,for getting up the affair;  and to those who contributed to the  ���Prog-rammer ' 'God Save the Queen"  brought the proceeding's to a close.  NAKUSP ASSAYED.  3lurinm,ing,8 of Life in the Smiling- City  by Arrow Lake.  Steamer Arrow Wrecked.  Passengers in from Nakusp by  Tuesday's train, stated that the little  steamer Arrow had been sunk in the  Upper Columbia. She was on her  way to Revelstoke with passengers,  when she struck a sunken snag, tearing a bad hole in her hull. The crew  managed, to keep the boat afloat sufficiently long to' enable all hands to  get ashore. Not much damage was  done and the vessel can be repaired  w h lit le difficulty: The Arrow- was  built two years ago at Revelstoke by  Messrs. Tingling'& Vanderburg, who  operated it. ���'.:'  Settled Without Difficulty.-  Neil Gething, of Gething & Henderson, was at the scene of the Indian  trouble on Kootenay river, last week.  He and his partner have a ranch in  the neighborhood, and Gething went  down to have a look at it.- He says  the difficulty with the Indians was of  short duration and the reclamation  works employees had all returned to  their labors without danger. Capt.  ^Fitzstubbs, with a posse of fire-eaters,  armed with shooting irons, went to  the seat of war, but when they arrived the aborigines had disappeared.  No further trouble is anticipated.  The water in the lake is rising  steadily.  Miss A.: Horton is expected ba ik  from Salt Lake City.  A large number of the old timers  are returning to town.  The steamers are carrying large  cargos of general freight.  '.- - ������'.���,'��� ���   v ���  D. A.McDougald is now at Spence's  Bridge. He expects to return next  month.   ",,..  A big gang of men has been employ ed on the repairs to the steamer  Lytton;  John Hector is having extensive  improvements effected at the Columbia House. , .",->'��� -..-  ��� M. Kellie has sold his residence to  the car repairers of the * Nakusp &  Slocan Railway.  Steamer Arrow will make semi-  weekly trips between Burton City and  Revelstoke, calling at all intermediate points. -  Mr. Millard, of the Dominion Express Company, has .written the directors.in reference to establishing an  office at Burton City. ; :    ;    '  Mrs, Horton has been looking after  the''dining, room of the Madden House-  during the absence Of Mrs. Manuels  and daughter at Revelstoke. -  The Nakusp Land & Improvement  Co. is now advertising Nakusp realty,  and have submitted a new price list  to their local agent. Prices have advanced somewhat owing to the certainty of a -smelter being established  here.  Part of the material for the new  steamer that the C. & K.S.N.Co. purpose building here, has arrived from  New Westminster. Work will commence on it so soon as the Lytton, is  cleared away. Capt. Troup .says the  new boat will be ready to launch in  six weeks from the date of commencing. In the meantime the Kootenai  is handling the business between the  Wierwain and Robson.  C.P.K. FREIGHT RATES.  .Winnipeg'Made a Competitor lor Kootenay Business.  Open to Settlement.  The reservation which was placed  on the lands extending back for a  distance of one mile on either side of  the;line of the Nakusp & Slogan Railway has been cancelled, and the  lands will be thrown open to pre-emption in three months.  To Meet at Victoria.  ���The Christian Endeavor societies of  British Columbia hold their second  annual convention at Victoria, on  May 14 16. An interesting programme  has been prepared, which has as its  chief feature several addresses by  Rev. Dr. Clark, founder of the organization. Special transportation rates  have been secured and delegates will  be billeted free. J. A. Mcintosh,  Victoria, is the secretarv, and will  furnish any information.  A special joint through freight tariff from Winnipeg, Portage la Prairie,  and Brandon, ill connection with the  Columbia. & Kootenay Steam Navigation Co., the -JTakusp & Slocan Rail-  ! way, and the Columbia & Kootenay  '���Railway,', has just been issued by the  C.

S. Johnson has located a gold property near Summit lake.  Several parties.;have outfitted this  week for the lower end of the lake.  Fifty tons per day is the amount  figured out to be shipped from the Le  Roi this sunimer.    .  J. A. Finch is meeting with difficulty m securing complete control of  the Richmond Hill.  Botli Gold and Silver.  GeViing & Henderson, apart from  their numerous mineral holdings in  the Slocan, have g*ot hold: of some  good properties on Salmon river, in  the Nelson district. Four years ago  they located the properties,' but paid  do attention to part of them, as the-  ore was thought to be too low grade  to handle. The N. &'F. S. R. runs  within four miles of the claims and  this has given them some1 value.  Neil Gething went down last week  and re-staked the properties. There  are six claims in all, two showing  silver, and the others comprising a  group of gold /prospects. Develop-  liient work has been done on the former, with excellent results, and the  latter will be handled this summer.  The indications are considered encouraging.  Score Another tor the Band.  Inclement weather prevented the  band boys from marching out on Saturday night, so they performed their  initial evolutions Monday afternoon  instead. They formed at Ay 1 win's  hall and marched to the square fronting the Slocan Hotel, playing a stirring march as they tramped along.  There! a short programme was given,  before the entire-population-of tie  town, the citizens feeling proud of  their budding minstrels. Their tui.-  ers lubricated and a fiver added to  the band funds, the boys next serenaded the Windsor, and Black & McLennan did their part nobly. Then  a header was taken for the church,  where the Ladies' Aid Society was  serenaded and their hospitality partaken of. The boys, though somewhat shaky in their delivery, acquitted themselves with honor, and made  lots of noise an vwav.  : The Alamo is looking better each  week, development work showing up  the ore bodies strongly.  The owners of the Trio,a promising  claim On Cariboo creek, ha ve refused  a bond of 4:5,000 on their property.  "'���; The Le Roi Mining Co. will put in  new'-hoisting machinery on their property The hoist will be capable of  handling 100-tons'per day.  ; Vader & Anderson have started  work on their quartz claim, on Cariboo creek. They- intend to ship as  soonas-theyhave a carload ready.  Col. Peyton, of the Le Roi, has secured a bond for $15,000 on the Lardo  and Duncan,   two  of  the   Wagner"  group of claims in the Lardeau country. . .' ;-:-.:  ���*���*  The Iron Horse, Enterprise, and  Monte Cristo mines, Trail, have be en  sold to Porter Bros, and P. Welch, of  Spokane.      The   amount   paid   was  $66,000.  The Butte &. Boston Smelting Co.,  of Montana, and the Kansas City  Smelting Co.are after the War Eagle,  Trail. The amount to be handled is  placed at $1,000,000. Twice that  much ore is in sig t on the property;  now.  A party, head ed by R. S. Fi tc b,  will work the ground known as the  Wan eta placer claim on Cariboo  creek, the coming season, on ah extensive scale. They arrived in a few  days ago with supplies sufficient to  last six months.  To Build to Sandon.  It is a settled fact now that the C.  P. R. will extend the Nakusp & Slocaii  Railway to Sandon this summer.  C. Osier, Avho was the engineer in  charge during the construction of the  main part of the line, will look aft< r  the extension. He is now visiting his  family in Ontario, but will soon come  out to run the lines of his new work.  Supt. Marpole came in Tuesday to  inspect the N.&S.R. and size up the  situation for the Sandon branch. This  will not be over five miles in length  and will have a good grade. It will  not be so difficult to build, nor cost  more than mountain roads generally.  By the building of this t.he C.-'P. R.  will seriously checkmate the proposed  Kaslo scheme, and be in a position to  tap a majority of the leading mines. Pagre 2.  THE   LEDGE.

An ; intersely warm bye-election  canipaign has been of late carried on  in. ���������|he bounty of Hajdimand, Ont.  One'oJ the foremost participants in  the fray has been Hon. Mr. Sifcon,  Attorney-General of Manitoba, who  has been (d9|ng his level best to upset  Hon. Dr.A*Mpntague's chances for reelection for the House of Commons in  that constituency. In attempting* this  he has used the Manitoba school  question as a leyer. In a speech on  Thursday night, at Hagersville, Mr.  Sifton stated that when the Manitoba  Legislature resumed , its sittings on  May 9tli, it would refuse to carry out  the order of the Dominion Parliament  -anidihe latter would be compelled to  resorfcto coercive legislation upon the  vexed school question. He wound up  his speech by an impassioned appeal  to the Orangemen of Ontario to aid  with their ballots and their influence  the people of Manitoba in their legal  resistance.  ; Thus, despite their protestations to  the contrary, the party1 leaders are  stirring up the, religious enmity that  is only too prone to break out in the  eastern provinces between Protestants and Roman Catholics. These  agitators, who are not one whit better  than their brethren of Land League  fame in Ireland, will fool away at  their sport till they gel hoisted with  their own petard. They seem to lose  sight of the fact that there are yet a  few Protestants remaining in Quebec,  and that,if the Roman Catholics wished they could < ma ke it decidedly uncomfortable for their religious rivals  there. But what is fish in Manitoba  is apparently flesh in Quebec. Truckling to the passions of men is a contemptible proceeding at any time, but  Mr. Sifton does not seem to think so.  Anything to get into power; and he,  like many more of his calling, palliates his offence by the old Jesuitical  adage of "The end justifies the  means."  Canadian politicians, of a certain  class, are the laughing stock of the  universe, with their puerile attempts  at statesmanship, as demonstrated bv  **      '. *���' *���  Mr. Sifton's actions; and the manner  in which they pander to racial and  religious prejudices disgusts sensible  men.    Yet what excuse can be offer  ee. Encored presents his compliments  to Bre'r Pratt, and trusts he mav be  long spared to cater to the literary  tastes of the good people of Kaslo  through the medium of that bright,  spicy, sparkling, and ably conducted  and edited journal, the Prospector!  To further the cause of bimetallism  in Great Britain, the British Bimetallic; League is raising, a campaign  fund of ^I00,00a ,The movement is  backed by a number of the leading  men of the Empire. Bimetallism is a  stern reality, and is araining strength  daily. Not long will. it be till right  triumphs and the currency of the  world is placed on a sure and lasting  .basis. ������-.���������'���  Alarmed at the progress being  made by the bimetallists in Great  Britain, the i adherents of the single  gold standard are marshalling their  forces to protect their interests from  invasion. It takes strong measures,  to arouse British financiers, and no  better indication could be forthcoming than this action of the gold bugs  to show how the cause of bimetallism  is prospering.  The price of; silver is strengthening  steadily, yesterday's figures being  67�� cents per ounce. Many wearisome months have passed since the  disastrous slump, but the confidence  is growing that this upward tendency  in the price of the white metal is permanent^ Other lines of business show  an equally healthy tone. Prosperity  is replacing the paaic and loss of the  past two years.  If the Japs make China pay them,  as a war indemnity, $400,000,000 in  silver, the white metal will be much  higher in price than it is now. As  silver is the principal metal used for  coin in both countries, it is more than  probable that silver will be required  to settle the bill. If Japan should demand gold, it would puzzle China to  dig up the necessary amount of yellow stuff without' upsetting the al  ready much-disturbed financial equilibrium of the universe.  For the information of people on the  coast, some of whom are densely ignorant about the Slocan, we would  say that it is not a wheat raising  country and farmers would do well  to stay away from it. Capitalists will  find it a bonanza, bu0 the man in  search of a place to plant corn and  wheat had better g*o to theOkanagam  Silver, lead and hell are raised in  the Slocan, and unless vou can take  a hand in the production of these articles, your services are not required.

Regular shipments of concentrates are kept up.^  Fred Shear, hailing from Gait,  Ontario, who was adjudged insane  by Judge ���Gregory, has been taken  to the Blackfoot asylum.  Last Monday, at Boise, Judge  Kichards sentenced James Ellington,  the murderer of Charles Briggs, to be  hanged.

Another sale will likely  be made to satisfy a deb0 of $15,000.  Jack Forrest, of Burke, has been  broug'ht into the hospital her,e. He  was caught in a belt at the Poorman  mill and narrowly escaped fatal injuries, his right arm being broken  and one of his ankles sorained.   .  The recent rich strike of ore m the  Frisco mine at' Gerii has put new life  into that camp. The new developments in this property are very encouraging. At the 100 foot level the  company has drifted through 30 feet  of solid ore and the shaft is still in it.  A force of 75 men are now working  on the mine.  The Standard mine continues to  send down daily its six cars of milling ore. This is taken to the Union  mill for concentration. In addition to  this a considerable amount of ore is  sorted in the ore house at the mouth  of the Banner tunnel. About 50 men  find employment at the mine.  A station is being blasted out on  tire second level of the Gem mine.  When this is completed a crosscut  will be run to the lode, which is expected co be reached in 3.5 feet. There  is a nice showing of ore on the first  level. No attempt, however, is being  made to stope any ore at present/the  operations in the mine being confined  entirely to development work.  The owners of the Daddy lode have  completed the bonding of all the properties in and around their own,  which will not only give them cOrtrol  of that portion of the Ophir hill, outside of the1 Mother lode claims, but  will place under one management  extensive and very valuable mining  properties. The sums set vary from  $50,000 and upwards. It is thought  the Coplens will not wait for the expiration of t lie boud, but wi il take it  up as soon as the arrangements can  be completed. When in full operation these works will give employment to a largely increased force of  ���men.', ;    '-.;.���'"-.' ,: ���:."'���  .Friday night J. J.Mills was run out  of the Gem mine by six masked men,  all armed with revolvers. He was  drilling a hole in a raise with one  companion, and the leader of the  gang had him covered with his gun  before he saw them. Three of, the  men arranged themselves in front oi  him and three behind, 'and in that  way was taken out of the mind.  Thence they escorted him down the  railway track to the Granite concentrator, three men dropping out in the  meantime. There they told him to,  get out of the .country as quickly as  he could. He came down to Wallace  but made no complaint. His partner  came down a short time later, and  notified A. B. Campbell, through  whom the information was conveyed  to Sheriff Sage. No arrests Ha ve been  made, as identification would be difficult. Mills is a quiet man and one of  the oioneers of the district.  Dealers  In  GEMEEAL  MEECHAHBISE,  NAKUSP,  B.

The United States treasury department is making* preparations to put  into execution the provision of the  tariff law, ���requiring" silver and lead  ores imported into tliat country to be  assayed at the port of entry. Representatives of the lead producing*  States, headed by Senator Dubois,  made a vigorous fight for this requirement, when"-'the tariff law was before  congress,*contendmg that without this  provision it was possible to bring' in  large quantities of lead without the  requirement of having to pay any  -duty..;   ��� . ' >.'���������������  The original ])rovision of the American tariff bill, providing only for a  ."'duty" on lead ore where the value of  lead in the ore was greater than any  other metal in it, was especially objectionable to those who sought protection against Mexican importations.  The bill was amended  in the Senate,  and becoming law provides for a duty  off- of a cent a, pound on all lead ores,  whether combined  with silver ores,  or ores of other metals.    The amount  of lead is to be ascertained by sampling and assays at the  port of entry.:  The law says the method of sampling  and-assaying is to be that usually  adopted for ' commercial purposes by  public sampling works in the United  States.    The assaying  and sampling  will be let, to the lowest responsible  bidders at the. various'ports at which  silver-lead ore is imported, El Paso,  Texas, on the Mexican frontier, being  the principal one;   -   ^;pi���������' :  .  More Foreign Capital.  The Cariboo Gold Fields Com nanv,  limited (foreign), of England has been  registered to do business in this province, with a capital of -��100,000, in  100,010 shares of -��1 each. It will  carry oh a general mining business  and especially bring into effect an  agreement, .dated. November 21st,  .1894, between the Whittier Gold Concessions Company, limited, on the  one part, and W. W. Ell wood, on behalf of the company, of the other part.  The new; concern will operate in Cariboo.. -  likely to add to the progress and  prosperity of the country, and which  at the same time introduces an element which is foreign and antagonistic to the Canadian people.  The immigration department is arranging with another class of people  who will be welcomed to Canada. A  German settlement in northern Michigan have signified their intention of  settling altogether in the North West  and a delegation will go up this  spring to locate land for them all  Mr. Mclnnes further stated that he  was convinced that, with an intelli-  gent and well-directed effort all along  the line such as the Government proposes, the next year or two will wit-  ness thousands to the hundreds of the  past rise from the south of the line,  and become successful citizens of this  country.' ;; '���'���������"'''.. ���"'.'���'��������� .'.-.-  These farmers, and farmers' sons  from the States are the most desirable  settlers. They have been raised oil  American soil, and, so to speak, are'���  to the manor born. Stimulated as  they are by an ambition to own their  own farms., they will at once take  their place as citizens of the western  provinces, and become colonizers/ as,  doing well themselves, they will naturally desire their friends to follow  them.
