The forest, fire is rather late in  reaching the Slocan this summer,  and if due -care is exercised this foe  to fine timber will not be permitted  to linger in the mountains.  The Kaslo Claim will be revived  this month: The former prospector  having grown rich since that,sheet  went up the flume, will endeavor to  make its second time on earth pleasant and prosperous.  The roads leading into Rossland  are the dustiest in America. Passengers on the stages can gather up  enough real estate on the journey to  stake a small townsite on. This will  have to be stopped, or the entire wagon road will cease to exist.  Work is being resumed on most of  ���the,Slocan mines, and prospects for,a  good, season are bright. Many ex-  nerienced men think the Slocan'is the  best field for the prospector in British  Columbia, :and the many valuable  .finds at the foot of the lake this summer strengthens their opinion materially.    The Bannocks, a tribe of Indians in  Idaho, have murdered many white  settlers lately. The United States  troops sustained their reputation for  speed and arrived on the scene after  the grief was caused. The Bannocks,  if they do not die of old age in the  meantime, will be wiped out when  the swatties catch up with them.  Many .writers have had their say  about Kootenav, and scarcely anv of  them forget to tell how long ago the  Indians made bullets at the point on  Kootenay lake, now known as the  Blue Bell mine. We cannot vouch  for the truth of the story, as we have  never been able to find any of the  red men. who were there at the time  this is said to have happened.  A bo at half a ton of very ��� strange,  ore has been taken out of the L. H.,  a property on Eight Mile creek.  When put in a frying pan, and heated, it will go up in smoke, leaving a  small button of silver in the pan.  Analysis shows that it contains arsenic, antimony, gold and silver. Mining men who have seen this ore say  that it is a mineralogieal curiosity,  and well worthy of inspection.  Mining excitements ebb and flow.  Four years ago it was Nelson. Three  years ago it was on to the Slocan.  Two years ago it was Kaslo or Bust!  One year ago it was Nowhere. This  year Rosslard holds the age and  thousands of fortune-hunters have  scaled its gold-capped mountains, in  eager search of the metal that is a  god to. so many human creatures-  Next year the scene will change, and  the madding crowd will surge  through the rich < mouatains at the  foot of Slocan lake, and that district  will carry the pennant for 1896.  Chas. Doering, of Vancouver, was  in town this week, and sent two men  into the hills to prospect.  Newmarket Hotel  NEW DENVER, .  Ste?e & Winter, Props.  Headquarters     for    Mining.  Men.

Second Year  s*.  fi  RED MOUNTAIN RAILWAY.  Plans and Maps  of Proposed   Changes  Filed at Spokane.  The topographical plans and maps  for important changes iu the proposed  new Columbia River and Red Mountain Railway, which is to be built by  J). C. Corbin, have been filed with  Registrar Logan in the local land office at Spokane. As originally intended, the new road was to have/been  built from the north bank of the Columbia river, up a small valley in a  northerly direction, a distance of  six miles, to tap the Sheep creek mining country, in which Mr. Corbin is  a large stockholder. The proposed  new route alters the plan by starting  at about the same point on the Columbia river, going up that stream to  Sheep creek, and following that  creek into the mining camp, a total  distance of 7 7-10 miles. This new  route follows the line of the Colville  Indian reservation with scarcely a  break. Sheep creek will be crossed  several times by bridges.  More Butte Money.  The Idaho Gold Mining and Smelting Co. (Foreign) of Butte has been  duly registered under the provincial  laws, to do business in British Columbia.
