Several new buildings are to be  erected at the concentrator, including  houses for the families of the Superintendent, Manager,, and workmen.

Rice is doing assessment work  on his claim up Morning gulch.  Road Overseer Meyer is fixing up  the highway between here and Wal-  ,   lace.  Wise Bros, having leased T. Honey's  two-story building, are moving their  stock thither.  Medimont has a building boom on.  Residences are being erected for R.  Short, C. Evans, W. Cross, S Ramey  and I. Moe.  The Frisco mine at Gem received  four large boilers this week The  "machinery for the air compressor will  be along shortly.  F. J. Edwards and M. T. Wright  have completed their assessment on  the property which they own half way  between here arid Wallace.  WALLACE.  Frank M. Rothrock and Miss M. E.  Snyder, both of Medimont, were married on Wednesday-by Justice A. E.  ���  Angel.  The bicycle craze continues unabated. The number of wheels in  Wallace is close to 50, and more have  been ordered.  Murray and Littlefield are to be  lighted by electricity. Power is being obtained from Sullivan, Prichard  and Cascade creeks.  The assay office at the Union mill  for the second time, was burned down  on Thursday night. The contents  were saved. A defective flue was the  cause of th e bl a ze. Th e office wi 11 be  rebuilt at once.  John Jones, of Walla- Walla, has  been here for several days. He is  one of the principal owners of the  Rosa mine, in Dobson gulch, owned  by the Blarney Stone Mining Co. Development work on the property will  soon begin. There are 400 feet of  tunnels on the mine, which carries  silver-lead of encouraging quantity  and quality.  WARDNER.  AI. Page expects to re-open his saloon in a fewr days.  Dr. Machette is building new quarters next door to the postoffice.  Several stands at the Stemwinder  concentrator fell down this week, owing to inexperience on the part of the  man operating.  Fifteen men are working on the  Stemwinder mine under lease- The  lessees have not averaged $2 per day  for six months.  Foster, who murdered a man by  the name of Cates, at Silver City,  some time ago, with a jackknife, has  been found guilty of manslaughter.  So far the starting up of the Bunker  Is issued at New Denver, B. C, on Thursday.  Wet weather, snow slides, hard times, or the  sheriff never hinders its publication. It  comes out just the same.  Hill has had but little effect on the  general business of Wardner. Most  of the miners who applied are now at  work in the mine, consequently are  seldom seen on the street. A tramway crew has been put on to get  everything into shape. The company's office is flooded with applications for mill and general labor work  but good miners aro still in demand.  MYRTLE.  Work on tlie Sweeney bar is suspended for the present, owing" to lack  of water.  Owen Jackson and four others are  working his ground, which adjoins  the Myrtle.  - Mebsrs. Robinson, Hammetfc and  Spaulding are operating on North  Trail creek with fa ir results.  George Wood and partners are digging on the lower end of the Myrtle  ground,'adjoining Owen Jackson,and  are making money.  Joe Hook has let a lease to Dan  Gillis to open a new drain on bedrock  from the old Myrtle ditch. Old thn-  ers predict that they will strike good  ground.  Jerry Savage is at work on the  Myrtle claim' with a force of four men.  They are drifting on bedrock with  fair results. The lower end of the  Myrtle ground is being worked under  lease.  There is still some profitable placer  mining in progress around Delta and  Myrtle and between the two places.  On Monday four men took out $97,  though that is above the general  average.  F. T. EUerhorst and Louis Nestler li)oes not dream.of.making1 a million out Of it,  are working a claim on Placer gulch,  but he expects to get a luxurious living. In  order to do this it is necessary to have cash-  able material, and the world at large is cordially invited to dig up enough money to pay  for an annual interest. To accommodate the  public we do  'i->  and they are reported to be doing extra well. They have, taken out nuggets recently weighing four and a  half eight and 14 ounces.  R. H. Mills, formerly head carpenter for the Bunker Hill Co., building  the first large mill there, has been  placer mining on his ground in Po-  tosi gulch, but will shortly take  charge of the erection of the Jenkins  .mill. :.  The Ward Brothers have jus* run  100 feet further on t he Wak e Up J im  quartz claim,making a total distance  of 275 feet. They have one of the  most promising properties in the district. They have 14 inches of good  ore in the drift. They have also adjoining claims of considerable value,  which are being prospected and developed as occasion permits.  The Fay Templeton in Pony gulch  shut down on Saturday, discharging  26 men. They had been working  six weeks, using a Huntington mill.  Morris Prager, one of the principal  owners, is confident of the future success of the property, and thinks the  failure in this case was due to the  employment of the mill in question.  There is but little doubt of the ultimate profitable operation of this mine.  At prices that do not discord, with.-, the despondent price of silver. ^^s&sxs^sssssbstz

Total Output   of the   United  States for
tlie Past Year.
The annual government report of
the mineral  resources ot the, United
* -States 'for the , calendar year 1891
has been completed. It was compiled under the supervision of Dr. D. T.
,Daly, chief of .the mineral department of the geological survey, and
is based on the reports of many experts and special agents. The total
product shows a great decline from
tiie output of  1893,   due   the report
,  says, mainly to the  financial condi-
• "tions,* but also "to   special features
which effected the net result. The
most notable of these was the strike
of bituminous coal miners, accounting largely for greatly decreased
production and increase in price for
part of the year. The strike naturally increased the' use of anthracite,
which partly made up for the decrease
in the demand for this substance, due
to,the depression of manufactures.
The low price of silver is responsible
. for the decreased production.
The consumption of petroleum exceeded the production, greatly de:
creasing stocks at wells and increasing
■prices. The total product was valued
at $521,595,131. /'The total value of
non-metallic mineral product? was
£3)5,786,313; metallic, $218,168,788,
and' unspecified^ mineral products
estimated at $11, ODD, 000.
The product of silver for the year
amounted to 49,501,122 troy ounces
valued  at  $64,000,000; gold,  1,190,-
816 troy ounces,  value $39,503,000;
lead, 159,331  short tons.  $9,942,254:
quicksilver,  30,416 flasks,   $934,000;
bituminous   coal,    118,820,405   short
tons,     $107,653,501;     Pennsylvania
anthracite, 46,358,141 long tons, $78,-
488,033; petroleum,49,521,575 barrels,
The pigiron production decreased
from 7,124,502 long tons to 6,657,388,
and the valuation decreased nearly
$20,000,000. Iron ores included
929,050 long tons in production and
£4 687,938 in value.
The gold product for the year is
the largest   since   1878,   increasing
from 1,439,081  troy ounces for 1893,
with a coinage  value of 135,950,000.
The silver production declined over
10,000, C03 ounces.     The petroleum
.■export was the  largest, yet recorded,
over one   hundred  -million'.gallons
more than in 1893. The total value
of the product of stone of all kinds increased, from $33,885,573 to t.37,-

Rainy Kiyer- is still attracting the  prospector and four stamp mills are  already in operation. Like Kootenay,  the element is principall from the  land of the star, spangled banner.   <  The Colonist says that the Provincial Government has closed a contract  with the Hall Mines Co. to erect a  s nelter at Nelson to be ready in six  months. This will spoil that town's  reputation for being the quietest place  in the district.  Open gambling has been suppressed in Montana, and, in future,  bucking the tiger will have to be  done in secret. Faro has never been  allowed in Nelson, but. pools on  crooked horse races are'occasionally  sold upon its most prominent thorough  fares.  This paper is not called the Ledger  as some people persist in calling it.  It is The Ledge and the paystreak  continues to widen almost daily.  Don't be afraid to invest in it. You  can get fifty-two different specimens  for $2, and for a few dollars more  you can have an interest in the vein  of high grade advertising now being  developed.  uThe;Toltec Head" is the title of  the story in the Argonaut of July 1st.  It is from the pen of Edmund Stuart  Roche, and details another of the  famous Calkin's adventure with the  supernatural���an adventure which  bids fair at the beginning to be as  startling as any experienced by  Rider Haggard's heroes, and yet is  narrated with the dry humor Of the  old-time Western mining man.  British Columbia desires to be represented in the Cabinet at Ottawa  Prince Edward Island is represented  and surely a province of greater im*  portance than that should have as  much to say. This province bids  fair in a, few years to get very close  to the front, and when it does the  seat of Parliament will have to be  changed from Ottawa to a more central locality, probably Winnipeg,  Orly two newspapers are issued in  Canada on Sunday, both in British  Columbia. These publications do  not come out. on Monday, and consequently little work is done on Sunday.  Recently an effort was made in the  Federal parliament to prohibit the  issuing and selling of papers on Sunday. The 3. C. members strongly  opposed it. If a law of that kind is  put in force it should be made to  apply to Monday morning papers,  which will work a hardship upon the  puritanical citizens of Toronto and  other eastern cities.  Down go tlie Kates.  The Great Northern Railway has  again made a cut in the rates for  hauling the mineral output of West  Kootenay, From Trail creek the  rate to the smelters at Ta coma, Great  Falls and Everett is reduced fifty  cents per ton below the former rates.  This makes the new rate to Great  Falls $8.00 per ton; to Tacoma and  Everett $7.50.  Band Visits Three Forks  ca Me & lis,  BOSSLAND, B. C.  AUR Stage Line meets all Boats arriving at Trail  Landing.  S.B. "ALBEETA."  An enterprising advertising scheme  was successfully carried out by the  band on Monday. They journeyed  by train to Three Forks, to announce  tlie excursion to the foot of the lake on  the 18th. The Forks was taken by  surprise and they are still wondering  about it. The boys had only three  quarters of an hour to stay, but they  delighted the townsfolk with their  selections. The hotel men vied with  each other in showing courtesy to the  boys. Coming back the band stayed  off at the concentrator and spent the  afternoon. Capt. Moore and his comrades, not forgetting the ladies, treated the band white, paying them every  possible attention. An impromptu  concert was given in the general offices of the company and a most enjoyable time spent. The concentrator  people are the most hospitable in the  district. It was sundown when the  boys got home.  ���Great Northern is Anxious.  An American contemporary remarks : That the Great Northern  is keeping an anxious eye on the output of the Slocan mines, and proposes  to begin competing with the Canadian  Pacific as quickly as possible, is made  evident nearly every day in the  week. The building of the Kaslo &  Siocan railway is being, rushed at a  great rate. '  At the same time the connections  between the railway and steamer at  Bonner's Ferry are being greatly improved. The new spur from the  main track to the river and the new  wharf are nearly completed and will  be ready for use by July 1: A good  warehouse will aiso be constructed,  large enough to store ore or anything  else that comes; and with the completion of the railway to Three Forks,  President Hill's agents will begin a  big fight with the Canadian Pacific  for the possession of that desirable  territory.

Editor of Ledge:  sir,���Perhaps the following notes  upon the recent game of baseball at  Nakusp, between the teams above  mentioned, may be of interest '������o  some of your readers." If not, then  I am certain the poem appended  will be :  New Denver hearing that Nakusp  had little practice together, and expecting to meet a very ordinary  average nine, anticipated a victory  on the 1st. They soon discovered  that to win thev would have to exert  their utmost, as Nakusp had secured  tlie services of an ex-professional  curve-pitcher, besides having three  or four others hard to beat in this  country -at-their position's.  ���Wo had had no practice batting  against curves and everyone was  puzzled by thc ability and control of  the pitcher. Our fielding and knowledge of the game was evidently  superior to theirs. At the commencement of the game T. Henderson was  in the box with Murphy behind"the  bat. Murphy in throwing to , first  base, mistook- the coach standing*  near for the ;baseman, and ,a wild  throw cost us dear.  At this period,   George  Davis took  the pitcher's bos, and in the remain  ins* five   innings   each   side   made  eight runs.  The ground was a very tough one,  the rhj-ht and left field being full of  stumps. The first base ��� was several  feet higher than the home plate, and  tiie third base was right up against  Abricl's store.  N. D; MOOKE, Pres:  R. McFERRAN, Sec'v  m4?

Ro well's Newspaper Directory for  1S95 has been issued, and contains |  an immense amount of useful information and sta tistical lore. The  preface states that in 1894 the directory catalogued 20,169 newspapers.  Of these ,2,133 have since died, leaving' 18,036. '.,-.���. The present directory  contains 20,395 newspapers, 2,359 of  which are new or appear for the first  time.  Taken in comparison with the  directory of 1893-���issued just before  the panic came���the lesson is even  more forcible. Washington has seen*  tough times in the last two years,  for in 1893 253 papers were published  but this year only 225 arc in existence. Idaho fell from 58 papers to  57: Montana rose from 90 to 91.  Oregon came down from 191 to 189.  British Columbia from 29 to 25. Even  in Massachusetts 49 publications  withered, faded and fell away.  When  one turns   to' Spokane the  directory's description seems funny at  first���"supply -point for the mining  districts cf Colvilie and Coeurd'Alene''  has a mealy,   mellow flavor of long  ago, when Trail creek was unheard  of,   Boundary    creek   a wilderness,  the Slocan , a  worthless region, and  the    Metalline,     Newport,     Libby,  Okanogan, White Pine, Salmon Rivery  Cleveland and  other districts  were  not worth counting at all.    But this  is soon forgotten  as one searches for  the killed, captured and  missing for  two eventful years.
