AILaw Case of Peculiar Interest to the  Mining-Fraternity,  A <jase, of peculiar interest to .mining' people, was heard before F. W.  Jordan, J. P., in Na kiisp, last Saturday. Captain Moore, John Vallance,  and Ole Peterson were charged by  M. R. W. Ratlibourne with stealing a  logy valued at one dollar, from the  Premier,, mineral claim. It appears  that they were cutting ������������:f;he right of  way across the claim for the tramway  no\v building Irom the concentrator,  and. were seen to take a los: off of this  EXTRAVAGANT PROSPECTORS  yrt  ground. Charles Rashdall, the new  magistrate in New Denver, refused  to issue summons for the case, hence  the trialat Nakusp. A.-,C. Abbs, of  Three Forks, appeared for the plaintiff and R. B. Kerr for the defendants  Moore, Vallance and Peterson were  each fined $8 and costs. They have  appealed the case to the Couiity  Court, to be held in Kaslo on July 5.  The Silver Bell.  Five men are working- on the Silver Bell. Last week a foot of clean  ore was struck about 280 feet from the  mouth of the tunnel. This is almost  the first luck J. A. Finch has had in  the Slocan.. The,/Be,lh adjoins the  Idaho and will no doubt prove a valuable property.   ,  �����?��-  A Difficult Proposition.  Fifteen hundred feet of tunnels have  been run on the TVbnderful and still  the ledge has not. been found. The  base of operations was changed to the  long tunnel last week, and the men  are now crossCutting to. the right to7  wards Miller creek. They expect to  uncover the ledge in another thirty  days.' /, . . "/  ���'������- ..-..��� .������  ���mtm*^ ��  ���  i -        ..    Why Not New Denver.  Men Who Carry Luxury With Them In-  to the Wildei'nessv  Prospectors seldom take   into the  hills any more luxuries in the way of  edibles than bacon, salt and oatmeal.  But, the same as in everything else,  the rule is occasionally broken.   C.  Brown, a painter from Nelson, went  into the Slocan three years ago, with  an outfit such as has never been seen  since; He had a sheet iron stove, two  tents, canned oysters, mushrooms,  cherries, and several other articles  strictly unknown- to a million prospectors when they are in active ser-  ���vice., Charley and his companions  found the Reco, and sold it with 12  feet of clean ore in sight for the sum  of$2;700. ;,-.���; '     '     ' .���S'-"  Tom Abriel is -weirknown- in Nakusp, and is enthusiastic in regard to  prospecting for the rich minerals that  he thinks are to be found around the  Arrow lakes. He does not pack canned cherries when he goes prospecting a bit, but charters a steamer, and,  like Monte Cristo, he steams across  the lake, a few miles from Nakusp,  and locates two claims in a new field  ''hat may Avhen opened up depreciate  the price of gold. Tom is all right as  a prospector, and will probably charter a train the next time he makes a  hurried-and, mysterious -trip to the  hills. '   '. '  DOMINION DAY.  Silverton Will Have a Big Celebration  on July I. ,  A Foolhardy Exploit.  Silverton is putuing forth a great  effort to attract the outside world to  their celebration on Dominion Day-  July 1. The citizens have subscribed  liberally towards the prizes.    Their  main street is to be graded and cleaned up, and a ground laid off for the  sports. Three beautiful arches.are to  be erected, - one at the wharf, one  fronting Hun ter & McKinnon% and  the third in frort of the Silvertoii  House. A dancing pavilion;will be  provided,���>��� ando everything done up  according to Hoyle. The event win  be the tug of war, Silverton vs. New  Denver, for which a beautiful silver  c.up has been donated; Of course the  Silvertonians desire the presence of  the New Deny er Brass Band and the  citizens generally. Nakusp will be  shut out doubtless for that day unless  they get a move on, for the Silverton  people are rustlers.  MINING NOTES,  Happenings    of    Interest   Among   the  Treasure Vaults.       .  Should, be Attended to.  Another American smelting company is seeking a location in this district. Mr. Suesman, representing the  Kansas City Smelting Co., is at present in the Slocan, getting posted on  the mineral output. He will inspect  &li suitable locations for a smelter and  then report. The company will erect-  the works on the most convenient  site.  Baseball Club Organized.  Saturday evening the office of the  Slocan Hotel was filled with baseball  enthusiasts, who had assembled to or  ganized a club. A. Sproat was voted  to the chair and C. E. Smitheringale  appointed secretary pro tern. In a  short time the preliminaries were arranged and the club organized. J  Moran wras elected captain and Alex.  Sproat secretary-treasurer. A membership list war\ opened up and ��16  subscribed on the spot to purchase the  necessary supplies. The chairman  appointed a strong committee to have  the recreation grounds enlarged and  put in good shape. Challenges will  be sent to all the neighboring towms,  and the boys are confident they can  whip the earth.  Sunday afternoon C. Aylwin and  W. Smith conceived the idea of shoot-  ingdown the creek in a canoe. They  packed their frail bark two or .'three  blocks from the lake and launched it  into the flood. Everything went fine  till they almost reached the mouth of  the creek, when they fouled a snag.  In a moment they were searching for  diamonds in the creek bed, with  enough icy liquid on top of them to  cool off their foolhardy ambition.  Smith, went ..under-the' canoe and had  a close shave. ' They mahaged to s<e  cure their canoe and get ashore,- and  beyond a thorough ducking were noi e  the worse for their exploit.  The trail between New Denver and  Three Forks is not passable for  horses, and for some time past Jim  Sheran, who carries the mail betwern  the two points, has had to pack it in  on his .back: :-A few dollars woiilcl  repair the trail and it should be done  at once.  For a Public School.  Visited by Bankers.  Thursday afternoon Geo. Hughes  arrived in town, having in tow A. H.  Buchanan, manager of the Bank of  Montreal, Nelson; C. Sweeny, dittcy  Vancouver; and A. Macnider, Montreal, Inspector of Banks. These  gentlemen had been touring through  the district and came here from Ross-  land. Their business in town wras a  profound secret, fur banking men as  a rule arc close as clams. The party  visited the Alpha mine at Four Mile,  Friday, and as a, result the ore from  that property will move out to Omaha.  They would give no satisfaction regarding the opening of a bank here,  but hinted that an agencv might possibly be established.    That's all.  The citizens are '-.waking-up to the  necessity of a school, and the residents  of the surrounding camps are abetting  them. A week ago a petition was  drawn up to be forwarded to Victoria,  asking tor the appointment of a  teacher, but it was not sent. Dilatorv  moves do not help out any cause, and  the school question is of live interest  to New Denver. There are sufficient  children here to commence with, and  the concentrator and Three Forks will  send delegations also. There is time  enough to get the preliminaries settled so that the school could be opened  at the commencement of the autumn  session.  ���*��^~  Monthly Band Meatinj  Stewart and his engineer corp have  finished the preliminary survey for  the extension of the N.&S.R. from  Three Forks to Sandon* The grade  is said to be at least 4 per cent.  Last night the regular; monthly  meeting of the New Denver Brass  Band was held in Aylwin's hall, with  President W.Thomlinson in the chair.  The secretary presented his account  sheet for the month, which with all  expenses paid, left the sum of $5.95  to be transferred to the treasurer.  Regarding where the band should  celebrate Dominion day, it was decided to give Nakusp until Saturday  next to put up a guarantee for the  boys to go there, failing which the  offer of the Silvercon people will be  accepted. Everything in connection  with the band is in a flourishing condition, and the improvement in playing quite noticeable. More players  could be added if instruments were  only available.  T. McKenzie has opened a tinshop  next the Avlwin House.  A. Smith, manager of the Surprise,  was in town Friday.  Five hundred dollars will be spent  on the Cai'iboo creek trail.  A three foot ledge of micahas been  located across the lake from Nakusp.  J. Bolander left this week to develop a claim owned by liiin near Sanson.-;.  Development work was commenced  this week on the Lydia, on the Galena  Farm,". ,*��� //::,/. ./: ''���������.���'/'������        -.���:������;���������.,   .:  Several highly encouraging assays.  were obtained fast week on Cariboo  creek rock.  A recent assay on the Nancy Hanks,  Springer creek, showred 218 ounces in  silver and..$8 in gold.    ,_,;,..  F. Richardson and A. Ferguson  went up to the Greenieaf Monday to  do this year's assessment.  'Warner & Strobeck are issuing a  map of the Ainsworth camp. About  250 claims are shown on it.  C. E. Perry, as agent for R. M.  Sherman, is applying for a certificate  of improvements on the Deadman.  W.B. Young returned Sunday from  doing assessment work on a claiin he  is interested in in the neighborhood of  Sandon,  This town and neighborhood is  practically deserted, by reason of the  great rush of prospectors to the foot of  the lake,  Geo. Long and his partners have  finished their year's assessment on  the Blake. They have -mineral "for  ,200 feet..  The Government is building a trail  for about-nine''mile's up the north fork  of the Carpenter. That section will  be an exporter this fall.  J. A, Finch has commenced to develop the Iron Crown. It is on Bear  creek and has some clean galena in  sight. Work will be prosecuted all  summer.  Charles Hillyer is in Nelson. He  and his partner, T. W. Morrow, h ~  tend to develop the Star of the West,  a Toad Mountain claim, this summer.  Development work on pro] erties  down the lake is crippled for want of  trails. This is an excellent opportunity for the Government to display its  generosity.  Heck man and McKinnon keep pegging away at their claims on the  Mountain Chief trail. Both ledges  have converged at a depth of 20 feet  and now show two feet ot* quartz.  The baseball boys and city teamsters have been enlarging and grading1 .the'recreation grounds all week.  As a result they surpass anything in  the district.  A postoffice will be opened at San:  don, with E. R. Atherton at the  wicket, as soon as the red tape necessary for such events is unravelled ly  the'.Government.  ^ Pasre 2.  THE   LEDGE.  .Soeoiatl/Year  he  geirge,  Published every Thursday,  R.

Tiiis  notice is given free, as the Government is short of money and cannot  afford to advertise such matters in  mining journals.
