SLOCAN   MINERAL    FLOAT,  Camping parties are making prepar  ations for a summer's outinsron the lake  shore.  E. B. Fraser, manager at the Currie  last summer, has returned to the Slocan after a trip to Europe and South  Africa.  Special efforts are being made to have  the mineral exhibit the leading feature  of the Spokane annual fair, and Slocan  ores are wanted badly to help swell the  importance of the exhibit.  Dr. Bell-Irving, of Vancouver, went  up Four Mile Friday to inspect the  Comstock mine. This* mine has supplies on hand for a large force, but when  work will be resumed is a question yet  to be decided.  It does not look as if the miners were  suffering to any 'great extent for the  want of work, when it is necessary for  some of the big properties to wait till  men can come in from other towns to  take.tho positions offered.  The local board of school trustees  have considered the wish of the great  majority of the patrons of the school  and have favorably considered the application of J. Irwin, who will take  charge of the school when the fall term  ���opens.  Rosebery strawberries, the finest that  were ever ripened in the open air, have  Hooded the market for ten days past.  Crate after crate of this luscious fruit  are brought over daily on the boat,  fresh from the vines, and are eagerly  bought up.  A. E. Fauquier returned last week  from the scene of the Kettle river gold  excitement. He is not over sanguine  About the placer prospects there, but  thinks if the ground could be systematically worked on a large enough scale  good returns could be had.  Mrs. W. L. Jeffery and daughter arrived from their home in Nanaimo on  Wednesday and joined Mr. Jeffery and  sonir who came here shortly after the sad  The Ruth tram has been completed.  Some work is being done on the Corinth and Silver Bell.  A contract has been given for 100 feet  of tunnel on Ruth No. 2.  Last week the Whitewater shipped  73 tons and the Sapphire 15 tons.  J. Foyle Smith is working a small  force on the Silver Band, Eight Mile.  The force on the Wakefield has been  increased and now numbers about 20  men.  About 20 men are working on the  trail along tho north fork of Carpenter  creek.  F. J. Finucane has transfered his interest in the Fidelity group to Scott  McDonald.  The Dolly Varden group, on the north  fork of Carpenter, is being surveyed  for a crown grant. ,  Work on the Mero claim, across tne  creek from New Denver, is going satisfactorily ahead, with fair showing.  An important strike has been made  on the Dalhousie, on Ten Mile, creek,  a short distance  from  the Enterprise.  The hunk houses at the Payne will  be completed early in August. Lack  of lumber has delayed their completion.  H. W. Forster, president of the K. &  S. Ry., arrived in the Slocan from Eng-  SLOCAX CITY NKWS IN BKIKF.  From our liCKtilar Correspondent  Arrangements are now being made  to ship a car of ore from tbe Fourth of  July group at once.  A car load of ore, 20 tons, from the  Tamarac, on Springer creek was shipped  last Thursday to the Nelson smelter.  R. P. Rithet of Victoria, one of the  new directors of the Arlington Mining  Co., was in town last week and paid a  visit to the mine.  On the Evening Star No. 8, back of  Slocan City, 15 men are employed. The  Black Prince and Two Friends are  each employing six men.  J. W. William is looking at the Duchess  group on Lemon creek with the object  of bonding. This property has very rich  free milling gold ore. The price asked  is supposed to be $20,000.  Mark Manly, who superintended the  work on the Arlington -under the Old  management, has been appointed superintendent at the Black Prince. The  first shipment of ore will be made this  week.  OPENING OF A MINK.  When the shaft of the mine is sunk on  the vein or deposit in the early stages  of the development, the error is of too  common occurrence to find that the ore  on the side of the shaft has been stoped  out, because it was very easy of access  and conveniently mined at small cost,  says   the   Mining    and   Metallurgical  Journal.   This is generally  the prospector's first error, as the desire for ore  is in excess of the means at hand of acquiring it at greater depth, and on that  account prospect shafts are seldom suitable for the main working shaft of the  mine.   When a shaft  cuts  or   passes  through an ore chute on the vein when  the mine has passed the prospect stag*e,  the temptation is presented to extract  the rich ore on the sides of the shaft.   If  there are no mining regulations in the  ZENITH ZING MINE-S  A special correspondent in theToron-!vance on it, while the mine remains to  to Globe says a very important industry, and one that bids fair to play a.  prominent part in the development of  the New Ontario, is the establishment  of the Zenith Zinc Mine, north of Ross-  port, a station on the C. P. R. about 100  miles east of Port Arthur. Rossport is  the centre of an extensive fish trade  and possesses a splendid harbor, and in  the erent of the zinc being shipped by  boat the ore would likely be put on vessels here, but at present the zinc is  transported by rail, and to facilitate  this the C. P. R    has  constructed what  district or no mine inspector to enforce is known as zinc siding, six miles east  The Skylark and Ranger have been  bonded by Dickenson & Felt from W.  Copelan. et'al, on a twelve month's bond  for $18^000 with a cash payment down of  $2,500, with the privilege of purchasing  outright within.00 days for .$11,000.  Work will be started at once.  For some reason the woik of repairing  the Springer creek wagon road has been  stopped while a few more days would  have sufficed to have put the road in  shape for use as far as it goes. There  area number of properties being actively  and last week and inspected the White-! worked here now both on Springer creek  water mine.  Four inches of ore was uncovered last.  week on the Mollie, Ten Mile. The  owners of the property will continue  development work.  The wagon road along Cariboo creek  is being extended to Blue Grouse, and  branch trails are being cut out to many  prospects in that section.  The tunnel on the Queen Fraction, on the government to build these long-  the lake shore, is in 50 feet. The ledge desired roads, the cost of which would  continues strong and rich and is steadi-j in a verv short time,   be more  than re-  and Lemon creek and their tributaries,  and which are showing valuable deposits. All these properties are being  worked and tiie whole district developed  under the. great disadvantage of having  to have everything in the way of supplies packed the whole distance from  Slocan City to the claims, as well as  having to have the  ore  brought out the  them, or to prohibit such   manner of  working, these errors are sure to happen.   The shaft of a mine, whether on  or off the vein, is the entrance to the  workings and should be used for that  purpose alone and not for the object of  stoping ore from its sides, which operation renders it unsafe and more liable  to falls of roof or wall rock, which are  liable at any time to block the entrance.  If it is sunk  on the vein,   a   suitable  amount of ore,  say 19   to 25 feet, depending on the strength of the ground,  should be left on each side of the shaft  before any stoping of ore is permitted.  It is also a wise provision to leave the  first 50 or more feet in depth  from the  surface which  forms the. back   of the  vein as a support to the loose surface  wall rocks and that constitutes the roof  of the mine and protects the workings  from   summer  heat and  winter   rain.  The neglect of making this provision  has made future working more expensive and ruined many mines, by admitting surface water and falls of rock into  the mine.    The amount   of ore  left in  the Iirst 50 or more feet on the back of  a vein and in  the ore reserved   in the  10 to-20 feet on each side of the shaft is  ly increasing in width and promise.

Mrs. Capt. Ks tab rooks and children  will leave this week to join Capt. Esta-  broobs at Okanogan landing. Mrs. Es-  tabrooks has been postmistress here for  four years or more, and her presence in  social and business circles will be greatly  missed. Miss Byrnes will be assistant  postmistress under C. E. Strickland.  R. Popkiss, managing-director of the  L. & B. C. Goldfields, whose contemplated visit to the Whitewater, Enterprise and other Kootenay mines that  his people are interested in, was noted  last week, passed through the Slocan  this week. He war. accompanied by H.  W. Foster, M. P , of London, En  George Alexander of Kaslo.  Grave responsibilities, like great  troubles, never come singly. They are  not sought after, always, but are thrust  upon us. On Saturday, the loth, C. E.  Strickland was made postmaster of New  Denver; on Monday, the 17th, he was  made the daddy of a bright and rosy  bouncing baby boy. He never smiled  so heartily before as he has since.  A farewell social which was participated in by nearly every New Denverite  was given in the Presbyterian church on  Thursday evening last to Mr. and Mrs.  Joe Millwafd on the eve of their departure for Nelson, where they will reside.

The Skylark and Ranger group, situated at the head of the north fork of  Lemon creek, was bonded last week  for the sum of 818,000, with a payment  if $2,500 down.

Work on the Sarah Jane, another New  Denver property, adjoining the Neglected, was resumed this week. A strong  ledge, similar to that, on the Neglected,  is being shown up.  After a brief delay work was resumed  on the Neglected Thursday last. The  tunnel will be pushed in on the lead 50  , and j or ll'u feet farther, and open-cutting and  stripping done on the ledge farther up  the hill.  Wm. C. E. Koch has a large force of  teamsters employed this week hauling  ore from the Queen Bess to the railroad.  There are in the ore sheds probably 4000  sacks of ore which will be shipped this  month, greatly swelling the output from  that property.  It is contended by some people living  j in the Slocan. that miners should not  ask for S3.50 a day but should submit to  a reduction, because, while some of the  mines may be able to pay the higher  scale others are not able to do so. This  sounds well, but it is very noticeable  just now that the properties chat have  paid the greatest dividends and are the  best able to pay decent wages, are the  very ones that are the most stubborn in  tlieir opposition, while developing properties, many of which have never shipped a pound of ore, are working steadily small forces at the standard scale of  wages.  One of the best letters and most intelligible narratives of the war with the  Filipinos has been received by Mrs C.  R. Donohue of  Portland, Ore., written  by her brother, Chas.  R.   Wyland, who  i is a member of Company C,  1st Wash-  j ingt.on Volunteers, and who wrote, from  j Santa Ana.    He says:���"We have had  J numerous battles with the enemy.     At  John Bangs has added a mowing ma-j first we would  march   for   miles after  chine   and cultivator to his   stock  of j them in the blazing sun and fight them,  farming implements. j but there are so few troops here that we  Hay is the principal  product  in this J h;JLfl to stop, because wc have to guard  valley.

The mine is a dozen miles  north of the track, and the ore has to  hauled out by teams, but improved  methods will be provided this summer,  and the properties opened up on a large  scale. The mineral is very rich, running as high as OS per cent, pure zinc  blende.  Somo fifteen years ago an Indian  trapper discovered the mineral and  made known his discovery to a white  man, who in return for the information  gave the red man a suit of clothes. The  consideration "was looked upon as fair  enough, and the Indians now are content with but little more, yet last year  the same property changed hands for a  small fortune. The original purchaser  turned over the property to the Mc-  Kellar brothers ot Fort William, who  did some work on it for a short time,  but for years it lay in idleness. Last-  spring the McKellars sold a large interest in the property, which consists of  eighty acres, to H. J. Beemer of Montreal, the price being reported to be  $30,000, and measures were at once  taken to have it opened up.  The ore occurs in granite and showed  on the surface in rusty-colored streaks.  It was capped over in nearly the whole  extent.   A shaft  was   begun and the  capping was soon  removed, disclosing  rich bodies of ore.    The ore apparently  occures in  lenticular  bodies,  or great  egg-shaped   masses,  and   its presence  can  be traced along   the   surface for  several hundred feet.    Its width varies  from one to twenty feet.      In the shaft,  which was put clown to a depth of forty  feet, the ore  body showed a  width ol  twelve feet.    The. shaft,   which was in  the nature of a prospect, was put down  on the top of a lull  to avoid the additional expenditure that  would arise if  water troubled the workmen, but when  actual mining on a big scale commence.-*  the ore bodies can  be opened up by  means of a tunnel.    At the bottom of  the hill are many great blocks of the  ore, which have become detached from  above.    The   blocks   show   no action,  either from water or other causes, and  are perfectly angular, showing that the  deposit is in  place and likely to be of  extent, but as yet  the property is still  in the initiative stage.      This vear will  give future returns.     It is understood  that a   company has   been   formed in  Ottawa and Montreal to work on a scale  commensurate  with  the deposit,  and  that an extensive plant will be established at the mine. The capitalists comprised in the company will be the same  men who are behind the Calumet company,  which  owns a galena mine on  Calumet Island, in  the Ottawa  River.  Crushers and power drills  will be sent  into the mine and the. force of miners  greatly augmented.   At present there  are only some 15 men at work, but during the winter, when   theviSwere  shipping ore, the work gave employment  to about 35 men.  The cost of getting the ore out to a  point from which it can be conveniently  shipped   is an   item   that   causes   the  greatest consideration at present.    The  construction of an electric tramway has  been mooted, as power can  easily be  generated from  the  numerous waterfalls in the neighborhood.     A series of  aerial trams, however, is the  most advantageous system suggested, and it is  likely that these will be installed.    The  aerial tramway would be more suitable  to the nature of the country and they  could be constructed   at a   much   less  cost.    Expenses   for   operating   would  also be greatly reduced while the snow,  which would prove a great obstruction  to surface cars in  winter time, would  offer no difficulties to the operation of a  cableway.  Zinc blende has been known to occur  in different portions of  the country for  years, but  it  was never thought  that  there was a sufficient quantity to repay  an investment.    So   far   as   is known  these deposits north of Rossport are the  only ones where the mineral is found in  bodies large enough to   be of commercial value, although there are rumors  that Indians have   discovered  indications of the mineral  in   the country to  the north of Jack Fish, and prospectors  are now in the woods  endeavoring  to  locate the ore.    These rumors have not  been confirmed and it  is   probable that  they have no foundation.     Although  the ore can be sent out  without being  treated and an enormous profit realized,  there is no reason why a smelter should  not be established   here and  the metal  refined on the ground .if:sufficient quantities of the ore cam be procured to keep  one in continuous operation.    There is  a possibility of an industry  of  as great  proportions and of quite as much  importance as the nickel industry being  built up.   There is no good reason why  the raw material could not be treated  here, or at least somewhere in Canada.  As it is at present all the ore is exported  to Belgium, and outside of the owners  of the property  only a  comparatively  few  laborers  and ��� miner;-  receive any  benefit.  a  great  freight rates.

Editok Leduk : Sir���The Silvertonian  referred to me in its last issue in this  way: "It was expected that Mr. Sproat  would resign on or before June 30th last,  but as he evinced a desire to work for  nothing, as this is what his retention of  office amounted to, he was notified that  his services were no longer required."  The last communication I received  from the Provincial Secretary on the  matter, stated that, "my position as an  employee would not be affected as my  services would still be retained in the  performance of the duties' attaching to  the representative of the Government at  New Denver."  The member of the district informed  me, when speaking on the same subject  that "he had written on my behalf to  each member of the ministry; he expected some arrangement would shortly  be made."  The Silvertonian should be informed,  there was no Parliamentary provision  for my services as Mining Recorder for  the Slocan for May and June. 1892, yet  my resignation was not accepted, neither  did I evince a desire to work for nothing  and pay $40 a month for board.  this Perkins  I     "Well, things went along, and this j party was.a slick one.

Periling Their Liv��K For Others,  "Heroes Who Fight Fires ' is the tiflo  of an article by Jacob A. Kiis in The Century, in the series of '-Heroes of Peace.''  Mr. Rlis says:  lonco asked Fireman Martin M. Coleman after one of those exhibitions of coolness and courage that thrust him constantly upon the notice of tho newspnpur  man what ho thought of when ho stood  upon the ladder with this tiling boi'oru  him to do thut might mean life or death  the next moment, lie looked at me m  some perplexity.  "Think:-" he said slowly. "Why, I done  think. There ain't any time to. If I'll  6toppod to think, them live people would  a' been burnt. No. I don't think of danger. If it is anything, it is that up there.  Iain boss. Tho rest aro not in it. Only  I wish." he added,.rubbing his arm ruefully at the recollection, "that'she hadn't  faijted. It's bard when they faint. They're  just so much dead weight. We get no help  at all from them heavy women."  And that was all I could get out of him.  I never had much better hick with Chief  Benjamin A. Cicqnol, who is tho ohle-c  wearer of tho Bennett medal, just as Colo-  man is tlie youngest, or the one who received It last. He was willing enough to  talk about the science of putting out fires,  of Department Chief Bonner, tho "man of  few words," who he thinks has mastered  tbe art beyond any man living; of the  back draft, and almost nnytbingeJ.se pertaining to the business, but when I insisted upon his telling me the story of the  rescue of the .Schaofer family of five from  a burning tenement down in Cherry street,  in whi'il) he earned his rank and reward,  be hutched a good humored little -laugh  and said it was "the old man"���meaning  Schaefer���who should have had the ��i_dai.  "It was a grand thing in him to lot tho  little ones come out Iirst." I have sunn-  times wished that firemen were not so  modest. It would be much easier, if not  so satisfactory, to record their gallant  deeds. But I am not sure that it is, after  all, modesty so much as a wholly different  point of view. It is business with them,  the work of their lives. The one feeling  that is allowed to rise beyond this is th��  feeling of exultation in the face, of peril  conquered by courage, which Coleman expressed. On the ladder lie was boss! It  was the fancy of a masterful man. and  none but a masterful man would have yo;  upon the ladder at all.  A Game of Taj.  Two !':���.!<���! heals lay b:;.'--i:iiu: in the sun.

Under the patronage of '* Bloody  i Mary" and of Queen Henrietta Maria  i Spanish methods flourished apace in the  j court cuisine.

MAKING A MINE.  The making* of a mine lies in the judicious, economical,   correct develop  ment of a prospect.     It   is   work  that  costs money; work that cannot be prop- i  erly done by other than an experienced j  person; work that takes a lot of time to j  accomplish.   It is, especially, work that |  is most trying* to the stockholder, and  particularly so if he be not conversant i  with mining*.     The average buyer of f  stocks expects comparatively quick and  certainly larg*e returns, when in fact  nothing- would   warrant any such  assumption.   The payment of dividends  ought to be one of the last things contemplated when opening a mine,  because there are numerous other things  more important���more important  because by their doing this there will be  more reasonable expectancy of continuous dividends.     It   is   not   the mere  matter of reaching the ore in the crosscut; but to be properly developed the  property should have most thorough  and complete exploitation, and so long  as the management of a property is so  conducting operations, the stockholders  may rest assured that their very best  interests are being kept in first place  A mine may be ruined by bad management.    The better way to avoid such  disaster is to employ an expert operator  who, while seemingly spending a lot of  money, will actually be working to ultimate perfect economy.

They  may  conform with such older rocks in strike and  dip or may cut across them.     A granite  dyke may intrude an older granite formation.    A  true fissure   vein   is   a   vein  which has formed  in  a  fracture of the  earth's crust which extends to unknown  but certainly to great depth.    All fissure  veins are true veins.     The   term   "false  fissure vein" indicates nothing.    A gash  vein is the result of the erosion of a lens  of quartz or other   mineral,   the  lower  portion   only   remaining.     They  occur  most commonly in mica sliists and rocks  of similar character.    Most  fissures  are  formed as a result of a  tremendous compressive stress in the rocks, thought by  some to be due to the  cooling of the interior of the earth and a  subsequent attempt of the outer  crust  to  readjust itself to the new  condition.     Under  this  stress rocks along certain   lines are often  wrinkled, as it were,   the incipient stage  of folding which results later if the stress  continues.    Should   the  strain continue  after folding has taken place,  a  point is  eventually reached when   the  rigid rock  masses are no longer able   to  withstand  the strain and   a  fracture  results.    Displacement nearly always follows, but tin;  amount   of    movement    is   sometimes  scarcely noticeable.      In   other  cases it  reaches many thousands of feet.     These  movements are seldom   violent but continue over a long period of time.    Mineral solutions ascend along the planes thus  made and a fissure vein is formed.    This  is the  true  fissure   vein.      A    plane of  weakness having been established, dykes  are also often thrust in  along  the same  plane or near it.    In some instances the  dyke has been   intruded   first,   the vein  forming   subsequently.      In   the   early  stages of tlie formal ion of  the  vein the  i strata are bent   and  twisted  and many  | open spaces and  zones of crushing are  j formed.    Should   the   stress   upon  the  rocks find relief elsewhere  or  cease en-  ��� tirely   no  fissure  would   result,   though  j mineral   solutions   might   pass   upward  ild Goose  Monitor  ���  Whitewater      73  ���liickson -   Bell ,   Wellington   Antoine.
