No. 43.  NEW DENVER, B.C, JULY 25, 1S95.  Price |2.00 a Year.  MINING EXCITEMENT.  Caused by tho Extraordinary Discoyerics  on Springer Creek.  Not since the big Finnell strike of  last fall has New Denver been so excited as during- this week. The excitement has been caused by the innumerable rich  discoveries reported  from Springer creek. This stream  empties into the lake at Slocan City,  and into it are running* a number of  smaller creeks,, which have been,  given names of prospectors of the  camp. Along' the banks of all these  ���locations have, been made, the principal ones being within a small radius and not more than seven miles  from the lake.  Springer creek was looked at in  1801, but no attention^ was paid to it  till last fall. This season opened up  with some good assays, the first, being  the Nancy Hanks, with 218 oz. silver  and $8 in gold. This is put out ol"  sight by -subsequent discoveries, till  now the whole country is talking.  All the claims,-and there are close to  100 of them, carry gold besides silver.  As high as $314 has been obtained  and upwards of 3,030 oz. in silver.  Dry and wet Ore have both been discovered on the creek, and the native  and leaf silver on some of the properties is truly astonishing. Lemon,  Twelve, Ten, STid Eight Mile creeks  haye also shown\some splendid ore  from new strikes of late.  On Springer-creek- the most imposing showing is on the Arlington,owned by Fielding and Cooper. This  property was located last fall and it  is developing into a beauty. They  have eight feet of a ledge IU feet from,  the surface. The ore runs in streaks,  while scattered through the rock on  the dump-and in the full breast of the  ledge is fully $1,0JO worth of native  sil ver. Montana men are after the  property. The boys want $50,000 for  the claim and it is worth every cent  bf-it./-'-"'' .'"T--''.,  Adjoining the"-Arlington are the  Silver Leaf and Portland, owned by  Thompson, Tucker; Martin and Long.  These have the same ledge and are  good properties. On the Silver Leaf  a boulder has been found, weighing  fully 1,200 pounds. These boys came  in Monday night to record a new discovery, which is a whale, and knocks  the wr:ole series of finds into a cocked  hat. Long made the strike on ground  adjoining the Portland. It has been  staked and named the Lillie B. It is  a huge body of galena, of unknown  width and was located on Friday.  The vein parallels that of the Arlington and runs southwest and northeast.  A' chun k of ore weighing 25 pounds  was broken .'from the ledge and is now  on exhibition here, thereby adding  much to the general excitement. J.  Fred Hume, M.P.P., j. Gibson, and  a representative of Montana capral  have taken out samples for display.  An assay on the ore Tuesday showed  1,548 oz. of silver. Thelxrys go down  on Monday to thoroughly .work the  property.'  Harry Sheran, on Monday, received  an assay of 1,487 oz. of silver and  $140 in gold from the Meteor, a claim  owned by him on the divide between  Springer and Lemon creeks. Tlie  ledge is 14 inches wide arid carries a  large percentage of native silver.  The I X L on Robinson creek has a  well-defined ledge, traceable for a  long distance. The ore is full of black  crystals, giving an assay of 774 ozvin  silver and $105 in gold. Clark and  Robinson have an adjoining claim on  the same lead.  C. Faas has made a couple of very  promising locations, in one of which  native silver cropped to the surface.  It is in good-sized leaves, hanging to  the ledge matter.  T.Mulvey made another strike two  ���veeks ago'and named it the Ottawa.  It is a bird of-a proposition.  C. Murphy and his partners have  staked out a couple of claims adjoining the Ottawa, and with equally  good showings.. R. M. Marpole and  other C.P.R. officials are seeking interests.  W. Springer has come in from an  inspection of Lemon and Springer  creeks, and he was astonished at the  showings. He has gone to Trail  creek to tell of what he saw and turn  capital this way.  Numerous enquiries about the big  strikes are coming in from the outside  camps.  The mineral showings on the creek  are more extensive than anything  ever seen in the Slocan.  The boys are" petitioning the Government for a' trail, to run up as far  as the-Arlington.  Enterprising outsiders are staking  out a townsite on the creek, close up  to the mines.  The claims mentioned. are but a  few, and there are scores of others  above average richness, but enough  has been said to give an idea of the  great .importance of the Springer  creek discoveries. New Denver feels  batter today than for some time past.  Helps Out Kootenay.  Hon. Mr. Foster's smelting bill,  which affects ���-���British- Columbia, has  been changed, on the motion of Mr.  Mara, to inrlude the silver and copper  ores of Toad mountain/ and/ the gold  of Trail creek. It was read a -third  time Thursday and passed  Attracted by Springer.  0. D. Hoar, Of Denver, Col., who  has had headquarters at Revelstoke  for the past two years as the representative of foreign capital operating  in the Lardeau country, was, among  Sunday's arrivals. He is now operating for C.P.R. capital,and has been  attracted here by the discoveries  down the lake. He will spend two  months prospecting and exploiting  the country between Springer creek  and Nelson. In this he will be assisted by a party of three, among  whom '-will be Eli Carpenter. Mr.  Hoar will spend the winter here if he  can get on to some good properties, #s  development would follow. Outside  attention is being attracted hither, he  says, and it will not be long before  ca'pital finds a lodgment among the  claims down the lake.  Recent assays from Cariboo creek  go as high as $105 in gold.  C. P. R. OFFICIALS  Inspect the Various Camps in the Koote��  , nay. District. ,  Kootenay has just been visicM by  a party of C.P.R. officials, comprising  T. G.  Shaugbnessy, vice president;  H. Abbott,   superintendent of Pacific  division; R.   M.   Marpole,   assistant  superintendent; H. X Cambie, chief  engineer; P. A. Peterson, Montreal,  engineer. The party went first to  Trail creek and spent some time  there looking over the camp. A gang  of surveyors is now in the.field running lines for an extension of the  railway 'from Robson to Rossland.  Thence the party journeyed to  Nelson, Pilot Bay, Ainsworth and  Kaslo, paying marked attention to  everything to be seen and heard.  From Kaslo they kept an eye on the  K. & S. R. grade to Three Forks. A  short visit was then made to Sandon  over the route of the proposed branch  of the N. & S. R. Late Saturday afternoon they journeyed by rail to  Nakusp to catch the up river boat,  and there they were met by George  McL. Brown, ' the district passenger  agent.  Whether or not the Sandon extension will be built, this fall is a doubt-  fulquestion. In order to head off the  Kaslo road, the officials talked over  the advisability of buying out that  undertaking, and this may be done  later on. The link to conr ec't between  here and Slocan Crossing will, however, so they said, be built inside of  two years, as the discoveries down  the lake have made that step necessary. Doubtful also is the finishing  of the Arrow lake road from the Wigwam to the head of the lake. The  fact of the whole matter is that the  company appears to be cramped for  cash.  Discussion ensued among the ra em -  bers of the party as to the probable  site of the smelting works to' be  erected by t h e Kansas City Sin el tin g  Co. Allf agreed that they would  eclipse anything of the kind in Canada, and wherever located there  wjuld the chief town of this end of  the district be. Revelstoke and Nakusp were the points/spoken of as the  probable ,site, with the Odds in favor  of the latter. The visit of the party  cannot be said to have resulted in  much tangible benefit.  Successful Excursion.  The band boys' excursion and picnic Thursday to the foot of the lake  were a success. Fair weather favored the trip until late in the afternoon,  but it cleared up again for the homecoming. There was a goodly company on board, some having come  from Three Forks, and an excellent  time was spent, dancing being indulged in on the scow. At Slocan  City Mayor Whittaker and tlie alder-  manic board welcomed the party and  looked after them in good sty 1 e.  J. Buckley and W, R. Will returned Sunday from Trail creek  it is given out that Sir Wm. Van  Home will visit the Slocan country in  September next.  MINING NOTES,  Happenings    of   Interest   Among:   tlie  Treasure Vaults.  Montana money is beginning to  operate in the Lardeau.  One hundred men are employed in  the Cariboo creek camp.  More than 200 men have joined  the Trail creek miners' union.  Upwards of 1,200 locations have  been recorded at Rossland this season.  A chute of ore has been struck on  thc Columbia, Trail, which shows  ��83:20 iii gold.  Cariboo creek is excited over some  promising galena locations made  during the week.  Several strikes of galena are le-  ported from the neighborhood of Cape  Horn, on Arrow lake.  The Cliff, on Trail creek, is developing a streak of, ore which assays as  high as $121.60 in gold.  Porter Bros, are seeking investments on Ten Mile creek. They admire the Enterprise group.,  An eight-inch streak, close to the  foot Avail on the L H, has given an  assay of 1,(JOS, oz. silver and $6 gold.  Eli Carpenter is prospecting back of  the Arrow lake Hot Springs for a big  ledge, float from which gave 700 oz.  of sil ver. '    ''  Capitalists from Montana have their  eyes on the Arlington, thc Springer  creek bonanza. Cooper and Fielding  ask $50, COO for it.  Montana men have been looking at  some copper-bearing properties on the  north fork of Carpenter creek,"in  which J. WetherelI is interested.  Supt. Marpole and others are obtaining a foothold on Springer creek,  through C. Murphy and his partners,  who made such good strikes last  .week./- ' v - '/��� / ./���/ ',..'/  The Golden Eagle, Ora Granda,  Promestora, and War Eagle, Oil Cariboo creek, are looking away up.  The latter has a ledge fully 19 feet in  width.  Seven men are working on the  placer ground, at Trout lake, owned  by the C.& K. Mining Co.' Their  quartz claims have been leased to a  Vancouver party.  J. D. Graham has been gazetted  gold commissioner for the Revelstoke,  Illecillewaet, Lardeau, and Trout  lake mining divisions. Cape. Fitz-  stubbs gets the remainder of the dis*��.  trict.  A new camp has been started be-  _ rceii Sheep and Lost creeks, close  to Salmon Siding. Many promising  clakxs have been located. The N.  & Ft. S. R. is putting in a good, wagon  road.  Tuesday broke the record at the  Government office for the recording  of mineral claims, 18 in all having  been booked. This is one '"move than  on any day since the office opened.  Seventeen of these were on Springer  creek.  t\v ���Pas&"2.-  THE LEDGE.  Published every Thursday. ���;;  J  R.     T.

THURSDAY", JJLY 25, 1895.  aJ read y good outputtihg �� mines, will  have its share with other sections of  British: Columbia; Our localityv with  its marvelous mineral deposits, cannot but attract British Australian and  American capitalists. We wish to  state that only which is correct, ahtl  purpose that all information furnished  by us shall be reliable and such as  we can verify.   Thanking you for  your   valuable  truly,     V  space, I  am, yours  W.J. HOLDEN.  Use ami Help the Press.  The prospector is very energetic  this summer, and the year promises  to be one of the most famous in thc  history of rich' discoveries of mineral  in more than one section of. British  Columbia-  Money is the-, greatest force in the  world today. It is worshipped more  than anything else, and if .you have  dollars numerous enough you can do  almost anything, from getting a bed  in Rossland to buying an annual interest in this journal.  Business is still good in Rossland,  although before very long many  branches will be overdone, as is always the ca:;e when one town is lively and others dull. About the only-  business that is not flourishing there  at present is that of the gravedigger.  The cemetery has had only cue customer up to date, owing to the fact that  most of the citizens have no time to  pass in their checks.  A miner's union has been formed at  Rossland. It is a $3 camp and young.  Perhaps it would "be as well to wait  until the many prospects look more  like mines before a scale of wages is  set by the miners. If the mines turn  out as is expected, the owners can  well afford to pay ��4 a day. If they  do not ��3 pfar day is plenty to pay,  and is much better than to have the  mines closed down and the'men idle-  Agitators, ea*er for power and money,  are always to be found in every  camp, and the hard-working miner  will do well to. protect himself  against that class, as well as capital.  Editor of Ledge:  ' Sir, ���We all know,or should know,  the value of .the press. It yields a  might influence, calculated to advance the interest .or retard the  growth of any place.' Which is it to  bo ? Let us awaken to the fact that  a bright future is *in store 3fbr New  Denver and the Slocan Take district  and vicinity; that, we may early and  quickly realize it if we faithfully and  honestly advocate and present our  claims. .The mineral resources of the  Slocan, as based upon the, many and  varied discoveries made this spring  and summer and from the high assays obtained, are beyond anything  yet uncovered or reported in the  province..  Let the interested parties get these  discoveries published, and let the  world know of our. mineral wealth.  Wo are,proud of New Denver. It is  beautifully, situated on Slocan lake,  commanding a fine view of the glacier and surrounding mountain seen  ery. It is a most desirable townsite,  the equal of-which is hard to find in  any country,' and undoubtedly will  soon become the metropolis of .West!  Kootenay, situated as it is iii the  heart of a rich mineral belt. . * /  . In assisting, the. press to proclaim  these facts we help ourselves. Life is  too short to befooling it away, and as  capital is coming let us awaken to a  full sense of our duty to one another  and.the town in which we live. Let  us pull' together and do all that we  can to further the interests of New  Denver., By so doing we shall-better  ourselves, and be. carrying out the  golden rule: "Do unto others as you  would have them do by you."

Tlie Londonderry Mine at Cooigardie is  ���    All Rigrlit.  The Londonderry, says a despatch  to the Sydney Telegraph from Cool-  a'ardie has retrieved itself.   During  the past week or so there have boen  several reports of rich strikes in the  mine, but they have proved unfounded. On Monday night, however,- the  warden received word from the manager that a good find had been made.  Yesterday the press were invited to  go down and see the discovery and a  number of reporters immediately letfc  for the scene. They then found- that  on Monday morning rich gold had  been found in the south drive, at, the  100 foot level, first on tile floor of the  drive near tlie hanging wall. This  was 23 feet south from the vertical  line from the old famous chute on the  surface.  The manager followed up the, find  and by yesterday evening had penetrated seven-feet into rich gold-bearing rock, which continued to improve,  until the present face carries gold from  wall to wall, and half way up to the  top of the drive. The pre-bious metal  is studded all over the rock, which is  also permeated with'fine gold, giving  the quartz an amber tint. After inspecting this grand sight in the drive,  to which an iron door has been fixed,  the reporters were taken to the strong  room and shown a candle box full of  specimens, which were . quite. one-  third gold, in dabs and bands. It;is  estimated that the box contains ��1,  000 worth of gold. -In addition there  is lots of stone in bags, arid altogether;,  about two tons of marvelously rich  rock has been taken out. ^  The manager thinks that the finds  arc1, a continuation of the sensational*,  chute lost on the surface, a it hough, he  expects there will be poorer belts at  iiitervals. Work will be continued  in theedrive where, the discovery is  improving -with every inch, and still  looks as if it is making oil the north  side. The main shaft's work has been  pushed'on, and it is expected that the  drives from the main and north  shafts will meet shortly. On this  drive the lode carries good battery  stone, although a fairly rich chute of  gold was met with at 150 feet in from  the main shaft. The poppet-head is  ready for erection, "and the erashing  plant is being prepared for. Lord  Fingall is greatly pleased with the  new development,  An Interesting- Anecdote.  .'.   The   Perthshire   People's  Journal  has the followiug paragraph:   A romantic little story comes from Blairgowrie.    Some 28 or 21) years ago a  little lad appeared  in the town, hungry and ragged.    He had no friend's  and his pitiful story awoke the sympathy of an old soldier named Smith,  and of Mrs. Bissett, Well meadow     It  was found out that he  had run away  from school in  Surrey.    Mrs.   Bisset  housed him for a week or more, ringed him out in some of her own children's clothes, and paid his fare back  to Surrey.     The young lad lias since  developed into the present Chief Justice of British Col vim bia, Mr. Theodore  Davie, who was Premier in 181)2 a *.d  onwards.    That Chief Justice Davie  has not forgotten his early adventuie  in Blair is shown by  a letter which  Mrs.  Bisset's daughter has just received from him,   referring   to   the  ���kindnesswhich.*her mother showed  him. inquiring about all the family  and the old pensioner Smith, anel enclosing a sum of money in repayment  of Mrs. Bisset's ; outlay in his behalf.  He also speaks of _a probable visit to  Blair. ������'..:���" . "���  A miner's union has been organized  at Rossland.  G. P.  1895=7  CURES  HS &  xmUiii  New Denver.
