The boarding house at the site of  the Slocan S'ar concentrator is being  erected. As soon as the lumber can  be procured work on the concentrator  will be commenced. The site is  about half way between Sandon and  the mine.  W. -B. Young and W. K. Richmond  came.into town-on Saturday, from the  Springer creek country. About 14  miles south-east from the head of  Springer creek they found, on the top  of a mountain, a ledge, lying between granite, one hundred feet wide.  They traced it for nearly a mile.  Snow covered several hundred feet of  it. They staked four claims, and  left Green!ey, Franklin, Schmidt and  Gibson hunting for the extensions.  Three assays from the rock taken  from this. big ledge give returns as  follows : $36.65 in. gold and 8 2-5  ounces, in silver; 17.70 in gold, and  14-9 2-5 ounces in silver ; $8.65 in gold  and 5 4-5 ounces in silver.

RICHES IN ALASKA.  Mr. F. E. Howard, one of the best  informed men in Alaska regarding  mines, says that a party of prospectors is fonning to start out this fall in  search of a new Eldorado. The party  will attempt to reach their destination over a route hitherto untraveled,  and they firmly believe that, if they  are successful their reward will be  great. They will proceed to the  headwaters of the Copper I-iveiy  about two hundred miles from the  sea-coast, where dwells a strange  race of Indians.  The Alaska Mining Record says  that in recent years, through traders,  jfchese Indians have got hold of a few  guns, and now, when they come to  the trading' posts of the Kncek River,  at the head of Cook's Inlet; they often  bring bullets moulded out of silyer  and other metals. The Alaska Cbm-  "mercial Company's agent * three  years ago obtained several of these  bullets and sent them to SanFranciso  to be assayed, and the returns indicated that sixty-five per cent, was  silver, the remainder being copper  and lead with a slight trace of gold.  Agents who have seen these Indians  say that they have a great many  primitive weapons and cooking utensils, all of which are rudely though  skilfully made out of pure copper.*  They have frequently informed the  white traders that silver and copper  abound in great quantities at the base  of a peak back of Spirit Mountain.  It is known that the Indians have no  means or knowledge of reducing ore  and it is thought likely that they are  telling a true story about the silver  and copper.  The only reason, apparently, why  some of these typical American prospectors���men who have panned out  gold in every camp of importance  from California to Cariboo���have not  visited the region of the upper Copper  River, is the difficulty of the journey.  The stream is excessively swift and  turbulent, and one might as well try  to climb Niagara Falls as to ascend  it; and the shore line is almost impassable. Only one white man has  ever succeeded in reaching the forks  pf this river, and he was Lieut. Allen,  who, several years ajj&*v after.undergoing severe hardships, ascended the  river about two hundred milos.  tons. The lead markets of the United  States are supplied from four sources.  The first is from domestic mining,  divided between the soft lead ores of  the Mississippi valley and the silver  lead ores of the Rocky mountains.  The second source is Mexico and  British Columbia. The third is the  base bullion sent from Mexico for delivering and refining in bond in this  country, and .the fourth is refined foreign lead. The interlocking  sources have greatly complicated the  compilation of lead statistics and made  knowledge of the domestic production  difficult to obtain. The following  tables show by states the domestic  product smelted :  [Colorado, 50, 600 tons; Idaho, 33,300  tons; Utah, 23,200 tons; Montana,  9,600tons.  j Other producing states are Nevada,  New Mexico, Arizona, California,  Missouria, Kansas, Wiscp^ and  Tennessee.-   ; -:'������;'*;'.'���  The total domestic production is put  at 132,700 tons. The consumption of  lead is placed at 102, jtfl tons. Prices  during the pear ranged from $.0307  to $.0302 per pound.  RS. J. H. WERELEY,  New Denver. B. C.

In discussing the lead mining industry for 1864, the United States  geological survey says that the year  was one of exceptionally low prices.  Mining declined and it was necessary  to draw on foreign sources to supply  $he deficiency. The production of  refined lead in the United States has  grown from 1,500 short tons in 1825,  to219,000in 1894  The product of 1893 was the largest  on record, amounting to 229,000 short  Headquarters     for    Mining  Men.

CANADIANS AJND ENGLISHMEN  Cordova has the following- article  In the Province,, which shows that his  head is level on a subject ol'considerable    importance    to   this   part   of-  Canada : -  - "It would be impossible to reside  fur many months in British Columbia  without becoming cognizant c>f the  fact that no less than four distinct  nationalities form tlie chief portion of  tJic population of'this Province, viz.,  'Canadian-,'    English,     Si wash    and  Chinese.    Of the two latter it is not  my purpose to speak here, they arc  both well-known and separate races,  but only when  you live in the extreme western districts of Canada, do  you gather new and interesting information pertaining to the science of  nations,   namely  that the Britishers  and Canadians are as widely diverse  "(according:'.to their own showing), as  the Si washes and Chinese may be  Here  is a startling revelation,  and  one well, calculated   to puzzle   the  ordinary-minded man !��� ',_*,.  Having spent many years in Eastern Canada I can boldly aver that  such trifling difference, in national  characteristics.as may exist between,  people born'-ln the United Kingdom  and on Canadian soil serves rather to  cement friendship than create dissen  sion between these two branches of  the same grand old stock, and it has  apparently .been served for the inhabitants of this province in the.far.  west to unearth ancl wa've aloft sepaiv  ate banners and distinct mottoes.  Upon one is depicted the British  ' Lion abnormally " rampant " with  the device "It's English you know."  Upon tlie other we find a very large  "'maple leaf'.' and a very small "Un  ion Jack," while underneath is written "This Canada of ours."  By all means let Canadians be  loyal to their own country,; but at the  same time let them ever be courteous  towards those of other countries who  dwell within their land, -remembering that nearh*~ all their forefathers  being British, the same blood flows  in their veins, and that they equally  owe allegiance to their Queen. Is  not Canada one of Great Britain's  proudest possessions���a vast and valuable, country stretching from the  Atlantic to the Pacific? Truly a  country to be proud of ancl to stand  up for in all loyalty and right; but  why lower the standard of Canadian  chivalry by offering gratuitous insults  to British half-brothers? Many Canadians (in this province) regard tlie  wearer of knickerbockers or a particularly noticeable neck-tie as a  being to be despised wherefore they  do not exactly seem to know. Knickerbockers are not necessarily the  accompaniment of imbecility and a:  parti-colored neck-tie may very well  adorn a manly chest.  It is strange but true that British  in this great   Dominion where the  British faction ofthe community pour  out bucketsfull of sarcastic abuse upon  Canadians who by the way are as  line   a   nation   mentally,    morally,  physically as any in the world.    In  none of the  larger cities of Canada  does one encounter any of this rabid  Anglomania as directed by Britishers  against; the  land of their adoption.  In llalifax,   Montreal,-'���"���Quebec,  Toronto,  Winnipeg", etc.,  the  two factions meet and mix on equal terms of  ���good fellowship;'.'then   why-   not   in  British Columbia ?   It is  very bad  form, to say the least of it, for Britishers to come out here and '' run down"  everything   Canadian.    If they   do  not like the country and the people  then let them go home again* but if  they remain on Canadian soil,  take  Canadian employment and Canadian  money, they should, at least refrain  from open abuse of the county which  gives them their bread-and-butter.  No matter what the active motive  of this��� antagonistic feeling may be,  Tw.hich .so constantly bubbles up  throughout fcliis province���whether it  springs 'from jealousy or want of  something' better to talk about, or  or whether some particularly rabid  individual started it, and others like  a silly flock, of sheep have blindly  followed in his lead, why do not all  sensible men and women steadily -set  themselves to stamp it out ? It only  requires a little self control and determination on the part of both parties'  and the tiling would be clone once  and forever, for such despicable,  petty; false national pride should not  live and flourish in kindly liberal  hearts. It is unutterably foolish and  unreasonable. "Union is strength,"  and if people desire to enjoy prosperity they must obliterate all such  ridiculous animosities.  There is no difference between  well-bred people of any nation, and  a gentleman is a gentleman, be he  English or Canadian. Truly there  arc vulgar people in Canada as well  as anywhere else, but so there are in  the U.K. and so there are in every  country; at the same time Canadians  -���'*������  can bear without abuse "the grand  old name of gentleman " just as .well  as can Britishers, and if the two  factions would apply themselves to  noting the good qualities in each other  instead of picking holes in one aiif  othei-fc- national characteristics it  would be much more profitable to all  concerned.''

If David had seen New  Denver he ���'could. have mado the  article on beauty ten times stronger  than he did. This is what the novelist says:  .: Apart from the interest whieh attaches itself' always to the progress  of the giant Prosperity, when he pulls  on his seven-league boots and goes  for a week ina gold-bearing country,  the Kootenay is better worth knowing than any new country in which  I have yet set my feet.   From the  the landscape artist's point of view,  its rivers, lakes and mountain regions  are mere dreams of beauty.    Along  from Nelson to Bonner's Ferry' alone,  down  the  Kootenay  river and   the  Lower 1 akes th ore are pictures enough  to make a painter happy for a lifetime.

The rankest joke of modern times  was perpetrated in New Denver on  Monday la st. -Mr.' David, the tailor,  finding it advisable to make a flying  trip to Sandon left town suddenly on  Monday morning before most of us  were awake. The freshness of.. thfe  town or some unexplainable cause  prevented iris communicating the  news to more than one or two friends.  All day long interested spectators  might be seen peering in th rough the  window at the form of the, lamented  and unfortunate tailor, which they  fondly imagined to be in; the bed.  Several theories were rife, but it was,  generally accepted that he was already dead. At .about 7 p. m. the  little gathering could bear the suspense no longer, and after removing  one of the windows- an increpid  citizen crept cautiously in, while all  eyes were anxiously directed towards  the form in the bed, in expectation of  a ghastty discovery.

The machine is .12  feet long, six feet high and four feet  wide, and is run by a fourteen horsepower engine, the total weight being  d,:->00. The principal is that of a circular saw, 60 drill points attached to  each of two wheels, four feet high  and eight inches in diameter make  'f.00 revolutions per minute; each  point one-half an inch apart, every  revolution feeding one-eighth of an  inch. The inventor says it will cut  30 feet of a 6x8 tunnel in a day in the  hardest rock at a cost of $1 per foot.  The machine' costs ��1, COO and requires three men to run it. The  rock is crushed as fine as wheat grains,  carried to the rear and dumped in a  car.

All her  life long this young Avoman had  yearned'-with, a great yearning to be  a man, but she couldn't be. So one  day she put on her brother's clothing,  ran away from home and began life  as a" make-believe " man, even if  she couldn't be the genuine article.  It wasn't so funny. She looked for  work and couldn't find it. She slept  out of doors. She knew all sorts of  hardships. > Finally she was taken  sick and sent to the hospital, and  they found out that she wasn't much  of a man, after all. She lias gone  home, and with that three months'  experience behind her, she wouldn't  be a horrid man for the universe.  We say that the new woman should  heed this solemn warning.

Alcoholic Statistics.  Statistics are quoted to show that  among Canadians the use of spirits  and wine is decreasing, whereas the  the consumption of beer is increasing.  Canadians drank in 1871 no less than  a gallon and. 2-10 of a gallon per head  of spirits, whereas in 18.)B they con  snmed   .720 of a   galjon.    Of wine  Canadians drank in  1871 per head  .102 of a gallon, and this decreased  to,.0.)7 in 1803..   The use of beer has  nearly   doubled.    Canadian   throats  on an average were moistened in 1871  by one gallon and .-!)79 of a gallon of  beer:  twent\r-three , years later the  average per throat was three gallons  and .598 of a gallon.    To-day British  Columbia  consumes per head  more  beer, wine and spirits than the people  of any other province in the Dominion.  The liquor '���������consumed'' by the whole  Dominion is estimated at 21,676,7-19  gallons per  annum,   costing   about  $15,030,001,    Of this nearly $4,000,-  c000 is imported, so that the consumption of domestic liquors is about $11,-  OOD.OOO per annum.    The cost of the  traffic to the consumer is placed at  139,879,854.     From  the   trade   the  Dominion receives in revenue $7.101,-  557,   the provinces $924,385 anpj. the  'municipalities $429,107.  through  forests,   through snow and  mud, to the east portal of the tunnel,  and 87 miles to the west portal.    Six  ���months passed before the machinery  was on the spot.    Rivers had to be  turned   aside, bridges built,   camps  established and men and horses collected,   fed,   housed   and  cared   for  nearly 100 ..miles' from a locomotive.  The tunnel is  Hjh feet wide and 22  feet  high,   and the entire   distance  (8,950 feet) was  bored: through the  mountain  in 22 months, ��� the rate of  progress with-the power drills being  413 feet a month, and the cost of the  completed tunnel was only $1 18 a  foot,  and the entire work was completed in 28 months from the signing  of the contract in New York city.  COST "OF TUxYNELS- .  In compaiing the lour great tunnels,   it is interesting to note, says  the Chautauquan, that time is an extraordinary element in the cost.    The  oldest tunnel���costf379 a foot;'Mount  Cenis, the next oldest, cost $35(5 a foot;  SfcY Gothard cost $229 afoot, and the  most recent tunnel of the four���the  Aiiberg���cost only  $154 a foot.    All  four   were   in old-settled   countries,  with abundant labor, and the 'very  great difference in cost per foot plainly marks the progress of science, because it was the, invention and improvement  of   tools    that   made   it  possible to reduce the time and thus  the cost.    To observe the difference  between the work on the .three great  European tunnels, built by the government aid in. old-settled countries,  it may be well to observe for a mo  ment the Work done on a comparatively small tunnel   built far   from  civilization   through   the    Cascade  Mountains on the line of the Northern  Pacific   Railroad.      The    mountain  through   which   the   tunnel  runs is  '3,790 feet above the sea,   and   tlie  peak is 1,135 feet above the floor of  tlie tunnel.

A correspondent writing to a  .Spokane paper has the following to  say about the bloomers and the girls  who wear them : ���  The wearing* of bloomers by young-  la dies who claim  to be modest, re-  speccable girls,   has reached such a  point that it lias called forth indignation from   more -than   once source.  ��� There .is.no modest line drawn, it is  simply this, tlie girl with the shapely  limb assumes the tight bloomer, while  her more unfortunate sister of  the  lean shank-:wears of necessity..'the  loose or baggy bluomer.   Some riders  claim they are comfortable and enjoy  wheeling more 'when clad in the limb  displaying   bloomer.     Now,   let   us  suppose that instead of being a good  excuse to show off the limb,  that it  .was very ".'comfortable,  but horridly  unb3Coming.    How   many   bloomer  fiends would his' ''Satanic Majesty "  boast a very very few I think.    The  majority would choose the.suit with;  less   comfjrt   and   more   beauty.    I  .-know from inquiry that it is all nonsense about tlie bloomers being more  comfortable, a short skirt worn over  the tight or English bloomers and a  smoothly buttoned legging adds just  as much to the comfort and more to  .-..-lie" beauty and grace of the rider  than the abominable bloomer.    Don't  think I am a crank and don't believe  in women taking part in all kindsof  legitimate sports, far from it.   I think  all women who care to, should swim,  drive,   ride,   hunt,   fish and ride a  wheel, and. that they should be comfortably aiicl yet decently clad.    The  looseness and immodesty of the rising  generation is nomething  appalling.  If it increases as rapidly as it has for  the past fifteen yearj ic will .noS be a  great whil e un til sue h a  th ing as a  modest young lady will be a rare  bird.    Women will ride the wheel in  tights and bathe in the dress nature  provided.    One of Spokane's supposed  young ladies was seen several Sundays ago .sitting* crosslegged on a log  beside the road, her bloomers drawn  perfectly tight over  her uppermost  limb.    That  .young woman,   I will  not disgrace the sex by calling her a  lady, had a good shape and she was  taking advantage of the opportunity  the bloomer and tlie presence of half  a dozen young men offered to show  it off.  s ���*  One of tlie numerous bloomer fiends  called, on a gentleman avIio was not  afraid to speak his mind, and requested a drink of milk. For, lie replied,  "any woman who would so disgrace  herself as to wear bloomers, can  never get any milk or any thing else  from this house/' She of the bloom-  ers who had walked up to the house  with that rakish and manish air,  turned and walked back with less of  a swagger, mounted her wheel and  road away, while the eyes of the justly indignant old gentleman glared  after her  retreating form.    Let  us  hope that the minister who has the  good of his young congregation at  heart will take up this subject of  Sunday picnics and the disgraceful  bloomer, and point out to the youug  the tendency to lewdness and disgrace  that accompany them.
