John 'McMillan and John Moore,  two of the owners of the Eureka, went  up to that claim'' last week to shovel  out the mouth of the tunnel, in order  to have the property ready for inspection by parties desirous of purchasing  it. On Saturday, having' completed  their work, they started on ; snow  ^shoes', to make -their-way to the wagon  road, near Belleville A slide, ho v-  ever, came along at tlie same time,  and before they could escape they  were overtaken and covered , up.  Moore, whose shpwshoes were-Jightly  fastened, managed to take them oft  and after four hours' .hard work succeeded in extricating liiniseliV. McMillan was not so- fortuiia'te and lost  his life. The body was afterwards  recovered; taken to; Kaslft, and ^interred. There were no bruises or scars  on the body. McMillan, was about 40  years of age and ufintorfoed. lie- was  a native of Glengarry, Ont., and his  relatives there have .been- notiriecl  the accident.  DEAD-IN A SLIDE.    , *  THE WHIZZING SLIDE  Does a   RusMn^- Business Throughout  the Sloeau Country.  A week ago rainy .���weather took  the place of the cold snap that had  tightened up the roads and trails in  the Slocan. A day or two of softening influence from the elements coaxed the snowslides���-,off their perches,  and they came down the mountains  in a vigorous and energetic manner.  Last Saturday witnessed the greatest  activity in the transportation oi slides  that has yet been known in the Slocan. The way they whizzed and  rushed in their macl career from the  lofty peaks of /the numerous mountains to the lower levels was a sight  that could only be calinly appreciated  through a telescope. Many of them  destroyed property, and in more than  one instance blotted out human life.  Miners had to flee for their lives from  many claims and seek refuge beyond  the reach of-the rapid and aggressive  slides. Wagon roads and trails were  blocked, and travel generally suspended in the hills.' .    '' ���v"  AT THE IDAHO.

Several  Italians who had their tents near the  Idaho had their habitations complete'1  iy covered up.  AT THE CUMBERLAND  a short distance from the Idaho, seven  men were in the cabin when the big  slide occurred.; They squeezed themselves into a corner of the building  and were uninjured, although a log  from the Idaho bunkhouse crashed  through the roof and made them  think of home and mother. As soon  as possible they evacuated the premises, leaving the tools in the tunnel  and a two months' supply of provisions in the cabin.  Railway Blocked.  The heavy thaw which took place  during the week, besides demoralizing  the mail and telegraph services; interrupted'-travel in all directions. On  the IS1 akusp '& Slocan Railway a number of snow and mud slides occurred.  Some eight or 10 close to Nakusp  were cleared with but little difficulty,  but those in the canyon above Denver  Siding   required   the   assistance   of  every   available   man on the road,   is the monster that overwhelmed poor  The big mud slide passed over the Flaherty and Switzer two years ago.  ALONG THE ROAD.  Between the Idaho and the concen-  tra tor si Ides were plentiful and three  men are reported lost, but no accurate  information has as yet been obtained  as to the truth of the rumor. One of  them is said to be named McCorkin-  dale, who hailed from the Coeur  d'Alenes. Gen 1;e's stables, close to the  intersection of the Alamo trail, had  one end demolished, but the animals  escaped uninjured.  AT FOUR MILE.  A slide came down over the Alpha,  but did no damage, as the builriihgs  were* put up with a view to avoiding  the pressure from avalanches.  ELSEWHERE.  The famous Freddie Lee slide has  dropped, but; did no damage.   This  railway and almost reached the sled  road. Between here and the Forks  is the hardest part of the rail way *, and  more or less trouble may be expected  there uniil sheds, or other fixtures,  have been erected to preserve the  road bed.  Near Bear lake numerous heavy  whizzers made their presence known  by blocking up the wagon road. The  Kaslo stage became entangled in one  and had to be dug out. It took two  gangs of men, working at either end,  four days to clear away the debris.  George Al yard had a thrilling experience at the Silver Bell Saturday.  He was standing in front of the blacksmith shop and his companions, live  in number, were in the tunnel, when  a snowslide came down.' Alyard  jumped into the ��� shop and the slide  rushed by, tearing down the building  and burying him in the -'ruins. �� His  companions dug him* out in 15 minutes. When rescued he was black in  the face and insensible. ��� He was  slightly cut on the forehead, and his  ribs were sore from being struck oh  the side with a shovel. It was fully  an hour, before he recovered his  senses. While being dug out it was  found that there was 18 inches of  snow ,)ir his face, and packed so ..tight,  chat it was more of the nature of granite than-the fleecy. Part of ihe building hf was'in was carried clown the  mountain, though fortunately for him  the back portion held its ground.  Alyard has no recollection of what  happened after the slide struck him  in the face, as he was' put to sleep instantly. -He was able to reach NeAv  Denver Sunday.  This is the second narrow'-escape  Alyard, who is a relative of J. A.  Mhchy has had: in the Slocan. .Last  summer, in company with Billy Clark,  lie was caught in the fire on the Idaho trail and his face badly burned.  On both occasions he lost his head  covering.

A social hop will be given in the  Shannon hall on Friday evening,  Jan. 18, to which everyone is cordially invited. Good music has been  secured and an enjoyable time will  doubtless be spent.

Coast papers are industriously asserting that a big smelting plant is to  be erected at Nakusp, where it can  command the business of the Slocan,  Trail creek, Lardeau and Illecillewaet  countries. The scheme has the support of the C.P.R. and British capitalists.   The Ledge announced the same  facts a year ago.   .��������>      ���  Painful Accident.  II. McLean, druggist, met with an  exceedingly painful accident Monday  morning-. He was going down Sixth  street towards tlie postofh'ce with J.  Black, and when on the brink of the  slight hill, slipped on the treacherous  ice and fell heavily, with his right  foot bent under him. Tlie wrench  was a severe one, entailing much  pain. He was. conveyed to his store  and Dr. Brunei* telegraphed for to  Three Forks. The Doctor found that  one of the small, bones of the leg was  fractured in two different places.  Mr. McLean will be laid up for many  weeks.  Rawhiding has been interrupted  by the thaw.  Idaho No. 2, owned by K. Shea, has  been leased to R. Alexander. .'.-,  The principal-seasons in" the Slocan  are:���mud, flood, fire and showrslides. ���  The Omaha smelter has purchased  500 tons' of ore from the Noble Five  property.

Moore, McDonald  and, McMill a n a re t h e o wn 6rs.   *  A petition has'been circulated, asking the Government to assist in extending the trail on Wilson creek to  the -Dolly'Vardeh group of mines.  Work has been suspended on the  Dardanelles until heavier machinery  can be procured. This is one of the  mines that the snowslides do not interfere-with.  At the beginning of the month 85  tons of ore were shipped from Kaslo  to Great Fails. The ore came from  the Goodenough, Blue Bird, Surprise  and Dardanelles.  For the week ending January 5,  the War Eagle, on Trail creek, ship-  ed out 160 tons of ore, and tlie Le Roi  141 tons. The'.whole" was valued at  $15,200. Pret��y good for a gold  camp.  Wm. Harrison, of Kaslo, who went  east a month ago, has been giving  the Toronto Globe some information  regarding the mineral wealth of the  Slocan. "William is trying to sell  some of his claims.  Gething, Henderson, Whitely and  Halpin own a claim called the Central, whicli joins the Antoine. They  are. driving a tunnel on it, and were  in 40 fcet when forced out by a snow-  slide last Saturday.  Hi" host on Ileeortl,  Returns have just been received,  by the owners of the Reco, from the  Omaha smelter of the ore recently  shipped thither from that mine. One  carload has returned the astonishing  average figures of 1,000 ounces of silver W the ton, making the 15 tons  worth, at 60 cents per oz., $9,000.  This is the highest total yet reached  by any property in the Slocan, an  evidence of the "richness of the Reco. .   ..''..WJi,,;; ..,."'������ */;a,g|:-   -   ������,  ~ii.i-'-.-Lffi-^*i-iii  Sj-j-VJ-.tj-^aa^^^j���-,.,,.,,.,  . n n  f ���'  Page 2,  THE   LEDGE.

FatherRossbachpreachedthe  sermon for the repose of the soul of  the late Sir John Thompson, at Saint  Patrick's church, Quebee. During  the service Father Rossbach declared  that if Sir John could now speak he  would say taat the only true religion.  was to be found in the Roman Catholic Church, and that all the rest were  shams and frauds.  The audience was composed of  Protestants and. Catholics, who had  gathered there out of respect to the  dead Premier, and they were^ shocked, to think that a priest upon such a  solemn occasion should seize the opportunity to insult those who do not  believe in his special brand of religious superstition and mummery. His  remarks have sent a thrill through  the good Catholics of Canada, and  many of the leading lights of the  Church have severely denounced the  utterances of Rossbach as being unkind, unjust, and totally uncalled for.  Such things will always be, as long  as churches are conducted, in the  manner they are today. When people are educated to the fact that it is  not necessary to employ a broker to  get into heaven, and that all churches  no matter ot what stripe, are run  principally by men as a means of  making on easy living, or to please  their [oratorical ambition, then will  such childish hGnsense as we have  just mentioned be unheard of.  value to the community, his life  should be freed from danger as much  as possible. One way to do this is to  have all buildings at the mines built  in such a manner as to obviate the  danger from slides, and render it unnecessary for men to flee for their  lives, as Jias been done during the  past week.  , Miners may be plentiful and some  capitalists may think that their lives  cut but a small figure, but we think  different. We want every one of  them to have a chance to die in bed,  and we urge upon all owners the necessity of seeing that their employees  are protected from the danger of  slides in every way possible.. .Take  bur advice, boys, or when the slides  come again some of you may have to  push clouds, instead, of holding the  end of a drill.  doctor =^  J.

The miner is the backbone of'every  mining camp. It is upon the money  that he earns that we, who live in tho  towns hard by, get our daily bread  and other luxuries. It is for him  principally that the saloons are fitted  up in gorgeous style. It is for him  that the storekeeper is waiting so  that he may pay his bills. It is through  his hard work that many men of  capital are enabled to ride in carriages and dine with dukes in Europe.  He gets $3.50 a day in the Slocan,  and for this amount he pounds a drill  and lacerates rocks in the darkness  of the tunnel or shaft. Pie occasionally is assisted up the golden stairs  by a premature blast, and sometimes  gets introduced to St. Peter by the  aid of a snowslide.   Being of so much  The ore has been piling into Nakusp during the past week in good  shape, live different mines furnishing  the material. Air ore jblockade has  ensued at that town, because of .the  stoppage of the river, route, and the  glittering metal has been lying, on  .the wharf in huge piles. This has  angered some of the shippers, who  will refrain from sending out their  ore until such times as the blockade  is raised. As the river is reported to  have again been opened, as a result  of the thaw, the ore will be. rushed to  the railway landing at, the Wigwam.  Snow and mud slides have blocked  the N. & S. R. for the past few days,  and that should assist in straightening out affairs at the Arrow lake terminus. Altogether 1951 tons were  received at Nakusp, at a valuation of  119,550. The ore from the Minnesota Silver Co. and the Last Chance  was consigned to Great Falls; while  that from the Alpha, Idaho, and Slocan Star was billed for Omaha.
