Holdch returned on Friday  from a short visit to the coast cities.  Though brief,   his visit was fraught  with:vital importance to this section  of the district.     He took with him  samples'.of ore from many of the  mines and new discoveries, reports  of the various assayers, and expert  testimony of great length from S. T.  'Walker, and other men equally wel 1  qualified to speak upon the mining  resources of the Slocan.  Wherever he travelled, Capt. Hol-  den discoursed 'upon the marvellous  discoveries made on Slocan lake, and  never failed to attract an enthusiastic  audience. To substantiate his statements he exhibited his maps and  samples of ores. But it was in Vancouver where the greatest success  attended his missionary work.  Cepeiley, Lot wen & Co., the leading mining brokers of the province,  became much interested in the reports shown by Capt. Holden, and  pronounced the samples exhibited as  the richest yet discovered in the  province. This firm has ordered  further expert reports to be forwarded- them regarding the Slocan lake  minerals, in order to induce foreign  capital to take hold and develop the  prospects.  Further than this Captain Holden  was assured that a member of the  final would be in this week to personally inspect the discoveries, and  "with liim would come ���? a representa  tive of British capital.

Holden's to the coast.  Mr. Ce];erley emphatically stated  that a* boom would shortly result upon  Slocan lake, and that as this town  was the operating point, the direct  benefits would prove instrumental in  building it up and attracting population. Capt. Holden's reports have  been sent to San Francisco for publication and dioseniination among the  moneyed men of tivit wealthy State.  R03IANCE   IX   GOLD.  A   Story   That   Reads   Like   a   Fairy's  Dream.  Going to Spokane,  the other, day,  ye travelling editor met Mr. Beair.is  of Three Forks,  and  he told a story  about a claim at Leadvillc that shows  tow uncertain are   the chances in  mining.  About 14 years ago, Dodds, Beamis  and Howard purchased a claim called the Allie  Reed near Leadvilie,  Colorado, for SI, 500.     They worked  it for lead and silver, but the ore was  very low grade,   only averaging 9  ozs. in silver, and 43 per cent. lead.  After spending a few thousand dollars  the   claim   was  patented,   and   the  machinery sold to save taxes,, and  the property  closed down.    Beamis  left Colorado,   and  gave a power of  attorney to Howard to, sell his interest.    After a  time Howard went to  California  and   became a rancher,  Dodds, who was a wealthy man, remained in   Leadvilie,   and   became  interested in the Little Johnny, which  is just 600 feet from, the Allie Reed.  A shaft. was    sunk   on   the Little  Johnny to a depth of 600 feet and a  blanket vein of gold ore struck, 62  feet in thickness.    Dodds then sent,to  Howard  in California,   and  bonded  vthe,Allie R'eed..for |65,00Q.'^.Howard  signed, the papers 'for himself and  Beamis, as he  no doubt thought  it  was a bonanza to get that much for  what was  considered' worthless, property.   Search  was commenced for  Beamis and after , eight months he  was found at  Three Forks,   and he  has gone  to   Leadvilie   to get his  money.    As the Little Johnny is said  to have one hundred' mill ion. dollars  in sight, it is safe  to say te say the  Allie Reed is easily worth tive millions.    Beamis upon his return will  remove his family to Spokane.   His  story,shows what.a chance there is in  mining, and it also shows how some  men get the lion's- share,   while the  partners take what is left.

The mineral claims owned by  Meadows & Winstead, and the preemption owned by James Bell, have  been surveyed.  At present the town  contains but  one hotel, the Jackson House, D. M.  Bougard,. proprietor.     There a first  class meal and a good clean bed can .^6^"^  be had at reasonable rates. r  Thirty-five men are working on  the No. 1 at Ainsworth.  About seven miles of country has  been located on Springer creek.  A foot of clean ore was struck on  the Mountain. Chief on Friday night.  Thirty-two locations were recorded  here last week and 37 the week previous.  Lane Gilliam is in the Lardeau district, where he holds an interest in  several claims.  Ed. Gove, who had the first bond  on the Idaho, is looking at Cariboo  creek properties.  Thos. Abriel, of Nakusp, is doing  assessment work on his many claims  on Cariboo creek.  J. Young has bonded the World  fraction, close to the Commander, at  Trail, for $20,000.  F. (Jr. Fauquier and  have struck $-27 gold  claim on Cariboo creek.  A 2G0 horse power boiler and a 20  machine compressor, are to be put in  at Rossland's War Eagle mine.  Locations are being, made along  Slocan river. Ed.

Contrary to expectation, the rock assayed dose to ��100 in gold.  Though colors have been found on  Springer creek, they are not in sufficient quantities to attract the placer  miner. The river bed is also antagonistic to that kind,of mining.  Messrs. Mills and Mcintosh, of Victoria, attracted by the rich discoveries down tlie lake, arrived on'.Friday.-'  They will endeavor to make their  fortunes in the same locality and  maimer.  Evan Jones has been prospecting on  Slate creek. He says he was too late  iri. reaching Coolgardie, and concluded to return to America, where the  grass is greener and the water is not  so brackish.

The Fourth was celebrated in vari-  ous places throughout the district.  Wardner citizens spent the day at  Junction Pi airie.  The Tiger mine at Burke started  up on Monday morning, with an addition of about 40 men. This mine is  now showing up some fine ore.  St. Peter's church was consecrated  last Saturday evening by the Right  Reverend Bishop Talbot, assisted by  Rev. A. J. Holworthy, of Wallace,  and Rev. P. Murphy, of Moscow.  Jack Regan, of this town, was  drowned in the Clearwater, about 40  miles above Lewiston, on Monday,  while working on a raft of logs. The  body was afterwards recovered.  As was expected, the injunction on  the last Chance Mining Company was  dissolved by Jud^e Beatty last week,  and the resumption of work on this  famous mine will begin at once. At  a meeting of the board of directors  held in Spokane last Wednesday, C.  Happy and F. Lewis Clark were  elected to the board of directors to fill  vacancies caused by resignation. The  ��� ^  board now stands: F. Rockwood  Moore, F. Lewis Clark, Cyrus Happy,  Charles Sweeny, and J.W. Chapman.  Mr. Clark was appointed manager of  the company.  WALLACE.

Dave Cromie, recently from Iron  Mountain, Montana, is in the hospital  suffering from fever.  A. Donaldson, who has suffered  several amputations of the leg, is able  to get around on crutches.  J.

John Low.ry, who has been an inmate of the hospital for the past two  weeks, was discharged cured on  Tuesday.  William Anderson, working at the  Standard mine, was badly crushed  Sunday night between"' a train of  cars and a chute. He was brought  down early next morning on a hand  car to the Sisters'hospital.  James Hanley returned on Sunday  night.from Bridgeport, Conn., where  he went several months ago to have  a surgical operation performed on his  eyes, which were injured by the explosion of a fuse cap at the Poorman  over a year ago  AROUND THE STATE.  On application of Governor McCon-  nell the Union Pacific has granted the  State free transportation for a carload  of artesian well boring machinery, to  be used in sinking an artesian well  at Blackfoot asylum.  The most important discovery yet  made in Willow creek district is a  bank of coal, several feet in thickness. It is said that the mill and  blacksmith shops and the people generally out there have commenced to  use it in preference to wood.  A special from Caldwell reports the  kidnapping of C. R. Eldridge, a detective, who has* been investigating  the murder of Thomas Ronan. He  was lashed in a boat and turned  adrift in the Snake river, a short distance above the rapids. He succeeded in loosing himself and then swam  ashore.  Monday night two toughs, armed  with six-shooters, entered Wah Sing's  store at Loesburg, and compelled him  to deliver up all the money he had on  hand, some $500 in all. After obtaining the money they proceeded to  help themselves to other needed articles among which were seventeen  boxes of opium. ''  P. Foster, who was convicted of  manslaughter for killing William  Cates, has been sentenced. He got  10 years in the penitentiary, which is  the maximum sentence for manslaughter in the State. Foster, is an  inoffensive looking man, but is said  to be dangerous when under the influence of liquor. He is 40 years of  age and a native of Tennessee.  The body of Pete Caddy, drowned  May 3rd while crossing the Lo Lo  with two companions, was found a  few days ago lodged against a large  limb in that river, about half a mile  below where the accident occurred,  by Charles Dickinson and his son.  The strangest part about the finding  of the body is that Mrs. Dickinson  dreamed the night previous to the  discovery, that the body was lodged  where found, and told her husband to  go and get it.  * Geo. Riebold was in Lewiston last  week, bringing - with him for shipment to the mint at San Francisco a  bar of bullion, valued at $4,100, the  product of the Little Giant mine at  Warrens, for the last four months.  Though working continuously, the  Little Giant is run on a light crew of  five men, who are stoping ore all the  time and doing no dead work. The  work is all done in a 200 foot shaft,  but a tunnel has been surveyed and  will soon be run in for 2,800 feet,  which will open up the ledge at a  depth of 260 feet.

A   LAND   OF   WEALTH.
Clarence King's  Opinion  of Kootenay's
Itlineral Resoui'ces.
,    In the Chicago Inter-Ocean appears
a long article from the versatile pen
of Clarence King,   the noted mining
expert,   upon the  mineral resources
of West Kootenay.     Following are a
few extracts:—•
A new and valuable mining field
is in process of. active develppment
in tile mountainous region of British
Columbia. In the latitude of Denver
and San Francisco thc Cordilleras of
North America reach their widest
expansion, a breadth from east to
west of 1,000 miles. From that
region northward thev rapid.lv nar-
row, until at the British boundary
the mountain,belt is only 500 miles.
Here this comnressed irmss of ranges
is highest near its eastern edge, facing the great plains, and declines in
a' broken and rugged slope to the
Pacific;
The section lying along both sides
of-the international boundary line,
extending southward into the United
States 100 miles, and northward into'
British Columbia 150 miles, possesses
many points of structural and economic interest. So far the more important mineral discoveries are within
British territory, but. geological
identity renders it almost certain
that the slower' and more thorough
prospecting that always follows early
discovery will extend the valuable
area  well down   into   the state of
Washington.
Thc points where  profitable mines
are already open lie within ten miles
of the Columbia.
Thus far only a general prospecting
reconnoisance in force has been accomplished for the whole region
■.fq;ith of the Canadian Pacific railway,
resulting in the discovery of many
valuable and some brilliant mines.
But it -is.-already certain that the
whole field described is one , broad
mineralized area. The chief points
of demonstrated value are the district
of Slocan in the West. Kootenay division—where excellent silver-lead
mines are being exploited and where
the two metals . oceur<■=" in unusually
high percentages in veins, with every
evidence of strong extension and
permanency—and Trail creek in
lower West Koctenay, six miles west
of the Columbia and about ten miles
north of the b/u idary. At both of
these points towns are rapidly building and large permanent >vorks of
development are  begun.    It is the
mines of Trail creek, hear-the town
of Rossland, which for .the ' moment
are attracting the widest public interest from the fact tint their veins
carry an extremely rich and unique
type of gold ore.
Kow Gold Fields.
There is considerable excitement
at Florence, Col., over the discovery
of a new gold field in the Greenhorn
range, nine miles south of that place.

and is 40 feet wide and, has had a
mill test running full width. Another tunnel in 30 feet struck a vein
of quartz that seems to be high grade
ore, and prospectors claim an assay
of §55 for the whole vein, some parts
of it running as high as |500.
The excitement increases over the
Willette gold camp, southeast of
Silver Cliff. New strikes are being
made daily, and business men and
hotel keepers are becoming prospectors.

Baker, Minister  of Mines, visited West Kootenay, and  on his return to Victoria, published an  account of his trip in the Government  organ of that city. Since then the  interview has been issued from the  Colonist presses in pamphlet form, and  distributed throughout the district.  This in itself is commendable on the  Colonel's part, but the subject matter  of the pamphlet is so crude that it is  certain to bring ridicule-upon our esteemed warrior. As an interview it  .could pass, but when it is inflicted  upon the district as a pamphlet, purporting to describe our vast mineral  resources, then it stretches the point  too far.  Col. Baker had his lesson well prepared, and his technical terms looked  learned and no doubt deeply mystified  his interviewer. One would judge  from the report that the mining resources of the district consisted of the  Poorman; Blue Bell, Slocan Star,  Eureka. Alamo, Idaho, and War  Eagle mines. , No mention is made of  the camps of Toad Mountain, Ainsworth, north fork of Carpenter,Slocan  lake, Cariboo creek, Lardeau, Duncan,  Illecillewaet, etc. Puerile in the extreme and devoid of much useful  knowledge���beyond������ * the fact that  Col. Baker had a nice holiday jaunt  through West Kootenay���the report  will prove of mighty little use in attracting capital to develop our inexhaustible mineral deposits. :  The New Woman has not yet arrived in the Slocan. When she comes  she must bring her bloomers with  her.        .     '________   '  New York has many attractions,  but with all its money it cannot boast  of a glacier such as we have at New  Denver. .  Spokane is reaping a harvest from  Trail creek, and Vancouver and Victoria will have to hustle if they want  the trade of that district.  will build from Slocan Crossing to tap  the N. & S. R; at New Denver and  get direct connection with the main  line at Revelstoke. This will be  necessary if they wish to compete  successfully with Corbiii's railroad  system.      \    "       '" : _^. . ,'./ ;,'..'  China will require 26(1003,000 Mexican dollars to pay her war indemnity  to Japan. This should ease up the  stringency of the silver question and  stiffen the price of the white metal.

These strikes  are almost entirely on,the east shore,  on Four,Eight, Ten and Twelve Mile  creeks, as also Springer and Lemon.  The formation is with few exceptions  classed as dry ore, and invariably  contains gold, running from a trace  to upwards of $2,000 per ton, *vith  plenty of silver and some copper.  Vancouver,agencies are working for  the introduction of European capital  to work these properties, with ' prospective success.

Mr. lien-  derson volunteered the assertions that  "803 men ������were, working on the  through line from Nakusp to Kaslo,"  and that ������ 'money was plentiful in the  district, but the people were investing  largely in mines." With all due5 respect to Mr. Henderson's veracity, we  wonder where he gained the information about that throng h line. No  such undertaking is under construction; and if he refers to the Kaslo railway then he is 4Q0 men short of the  total. His last assertion is equally  misleading. The one great drawback  to this country is want of money,  rather than there being a sufficiency  of it. . Of course people invest in  mines up. here; that is what Ave are in  the Slocan for.

Thousands of Mea Starving in Johnnes-  bnrg Gold  Fields. ^  blazing forth their  fire and smoke.  The gold reef is 45 miles in length.  The first row of deep .levels is now in  active operation, and before another  five years shall have passed by the  second and third rows of deep level  mines will be in active operation.  The greater the depth the richer the  ore. Some of the mines are nowr  down to a depth of 1,000 feet. The  supply of gold seems to be inexhaustible. It has been estimated by  experts that there is a surety of $12,-  000,000.000 of gold in the Johannesburg mines.  The success of these mines is due  greatly to Americans. The Australian miners first visited the "Rand,"  but they were unsuccessful. After  many attempts they finally left,  stating that no gold could be found in  those fields. English miners from  Cornwall undertook the responsibility. Though they made a better  showing than the Australians, yet  they were far from giving satisfaction.  The Rothschilds became interested  in these fields. They sent out Hamilton Smith, a Californian, to look over  the ground and see if there was  sufficient; gold on the reef to warrant  an expenditure. His report was a  favorable one. From that time experienced American miners made  their appearance at Johannesburg.  4'It's the greatest gold mining region in  the   -world," said John   E.  Owens, a well-known newspaper man  who has just returned to San Francisco  from   his   travels.     He   was  talking about Johannesburg, and he  ought to be an  authority   on that  corner of the world, for his ramblings  in the Transvaal have been extensive.  "Yes," he said, "the greatest gold  mines in   the   world   are   now   at  Johannesburg, which is in the Transvaal, South Africa.    It is situated on j  a high plateau at an altitude of 5,600  feet and 1,014 miles from Capetown.  It's population of about 60,000 (including the African negro) is decidedly  cosmopolitan.   Men from all countries  join in the wild rush for gold."   He  continued:  The mines of Johannesburg (Wit-  watersrandt, or more commonly  known as the * 'Rand") are now yielding more gold each month than all  the other mines of the world combined. The average monthly output at  present is placed at 179,000 ounces.  This is continually increasing, and  it's beyond the conception of any person to estimate the possibilities of  these mines.  To the visitor standing on the small  hill back of Doornfontein, a fashionable suburb of. Johannesburg, the  sight is a grand one. As ftir as the  eye can reach in a direct line east  and west, the huge chimneys of the  gold stamping mills   may be seen  The place began to assume life from  the moment they tc ok charge. The  result is that today, under the management of Americans, mostly Ca" -  fornians, Johannesburg has become  the greatest gold centre of the world  and one may find there the very  latest improved mining machinery.  There is at present over 3,503  stamps at work in the mills. These  mills are run at their fullest capacity,  night and day, from one week's end  to the other. Everything is on a  gigantic scale, so far as mining is  concerned.  From early morning till late iri the  afternoon the stock exchange on Commissioner street is a scene of excite,  ment. If stocks are high then busi  ness is good in the town, but if there  should be a drop in the market money  is scarce. The population seems to  live by gambling.  The hope of South Africa is centred  in Johannesburg. Capetown, Port  Elizabeth, East London and Natal  are all dependent on the Johannesburg trade. The financial houses of  Europe have their representatives at  the "Rand." Notwithstanding the  great wealth of gold, South Africa is  not the place for a, poor man to go for  work. All the labor in the mines is  performed by the negro natives.  There are no factories nor any  opportunity for agricultural work.  Living there is extremely expensive,  N. D. MOORE, Pres.  R.

The influx of population to Johannesburg has been very great. The  result is that at least 5,000 men are  out of work and starving. A large  number are arriving weekly, swelling up the list of unemployed and  adding to the general confusion.  Among the most notable Americans  who have been the means of building  up Joharnesburg may be mentioned:  Charles Butters, the introducer of the  cyanide process there; J. H. Ham-  moncj, who receives the fabulous  salary of $125,000 per annum; Captain Mein of the Robinson mines;  Hamilton Smith, representing the  Rothschilds; Mr. Webber of the  Crown Reef; Mr. Wiltse of the  Grlendenhuis estate, and J. C. Manion  representing American firms.  Johannesburg may be considered  as one cf the wonders of the mining,  world. '-'.Its growth has been phenomenal. Nine years ago the site of  the "Rand" had but one habitation.  Today the town has magnificent  office buildings and palatial residences.  The feeling here between the English and Boers is very bitter. How  long the Transvaal Government  will last, it is very hard to guess.  One thing is certain that the popula  tion of Johannesburg (excepting the  Americans) are ready to revolt whenever an opportunity occurs. The  police force of Johannesburg may be  considered as one of the most .incompetent in existence. Negroes, coolies,  Chinamen, and all who have black  or Asiatic blood in their veins, must  , walk in the middle of the road. The  sidewalks are for the use of the  whites in Boerland. Any of these  above persons caught walking on the  sidewalks are arrested and fined $10  or one month. It is a peculiar country with a peculiar people.  BRUNSWICK    HOUSE  THREE   FORKS,   B.
