With this shipment the orehouses at  the Forks are emptied and many  moons will shine ere they be so full  as during the past winter. The only  shipments in vi'ew at-present are the  monthly contract of tlie Slocan Star,  for 200"tons, to the C.P.R., aid the  ore from the Alpha. The first has  not vet begun, because of bad roads,  and'tho. other is delayed for the 443rd  time for reasons not made known to  the public.  From the initial shipment on September 13, 1894, till January i, 1895,  the Slocan mines sent out over the  Nakusp & Slocan Railway:���  Alpha mine 771\ tons, valued at   $ 77,125  KASLO ASSAYED.

It adjoins the Mountain View claim,  and has one of the largest veins in the  camp | running through its entire  length.. It is certain to prove a valuable property.  There was a large influx of visitors  during the week.  -,'��� There is a good ���''���prospect of an hospital being built in'the near future.

Plans are being prepared for a new  fire hall, to include a council chamber,  offices, and police headquarters.  The owners of the steamer Alberta  have oi ened an office in the Dardanelles block, Front street, with D. W.  Moore ia charge.  Sunday's excursion to Pilot Bay  and other lake ports on the steamer  Alberta was well attended, a large  crowd going; from here.  '^George -Pettit,, of Victoria, has-  leased the Potter building, on Front  street, and opens this week a large  stock of gents' furnishings. ���  Bert Campbell,' Si. Simmons and  Henry Covington, who own valuable  claims at the ^cad of Fry creek,have  gone up to do development work. ���   -  The work of grading the Kaslo &  Slocan Railway is going ahead very  fast, almost l,0C0nien being employed. There is no.doubt about the road  being ready at the appointed time.  The prisoner recently sentenced to  30 clays, which time he was to  on the creek, on being taken to the  Idaho for breakfast, went into the  washroom, opened a;;window and  skipped. \'  The council has brought in a bylaw  to exempt the railway lands; plant,  station grounds, and right of way  from taxation for 10 years. It has to  be voted on on Monday,"17th instant,  when "we shall see "what we. shall  see." Feeling is very strong in the  matter.  Several lots and houses changed  hands last week. Among others, J.  D. Moore gets the lot next his building on Fourth street, then sells 33 feet  on Fourth street, 50 feet, deep, to the  Blandy Bros., $_50 being the price in  each case. This sale, with others,  was consummated through J. W.  Sanders.  We met Kettle Belly Brown the  other day. Brown has a ranch a few  miles from Nelson, and is the man  who once flagged the fast express on  the C.& K. Railway to find out the  time of day so that he could set his  alarm clock. We met him in the  baggage car, and recognizing that lie  was a '4(Jer by the manner in which  he chewed tobacco, we wound him up  and he spun the following:        "They, call me Kettle Belly Brown  and I came across the plains in '40,  and I have done nearly everything  since then, except preaching. Talking about preaching, did you ever  hear the story about the blacksmith  who once turned preacher in a new  settlement? He, had noticed that  preachers were pretty well dressed,  and apparently had a better time  thani he, so he quit blowipg the bellows, and, being well educated, he  struck a job of preaching in a Methodist church, his pay to be half cash  and tlie balance in rve. His preach'-,  ing did not suit the Methodists and he  had-to resign.; After trying nearly  all the other denominations and being  fired from each, he called a convention of the elders of the different  churches, and told them .lie would  like to know what,to preach them so  that he could suit, them, ,as it was impossible for him' to get along without  the 'rye.

McDougald, of Nakusp, while  on his way to Salt Lake City, died on  the train at Glenn's Falls, Idaho, last  Friday morning. He had been ill  with consumption for a long time, and  only recently returned from the Sandwich Islands. He was a native of  Ontario, and had lived in California  and British Columbia for the past  eight years. As proprietor of the  Leland' Hotel, in Nakusp, he "was  well-known and popular with all  classes. He was identified with public matters wherever he lived, and  his demise at a comparatively early  age will be regretted by a host of  friends. 1/eceased leaves a wife and,  three children, who have the sympathy'of tlie-whole district in their  f.

Wm, Thomlinson has purchased a  third in the Even ing Star, on Springer'  creek, from Nels Nelson. This claim  adjoins the Morning Star.  McGillivery and Shannon are opening up their property recently, staked  on Ten Mile. They have a beautiful  showing of six feet of dry ore between  walls.  A.

Silverton's Celebration/  The citizens of Silverton are busy  with their preparations for the celebration of Dominion Day. They are  going about it in a systematic "manner, which promises success. They  have an array of liberal prizes oh the  programme, which wrill follow in the  line of the recent Denver affair. The  New Denver Brass Band have decided upon taking part in the fun, and  they will be a drawing card: They  are to be the guests of the Silverton-  ians.

Snake river strawberries and cherries are now among the luxuries offered for sale here.  Judge Albert Hagan still continues  in a precarious condition and his recovery is doubtful. His son George  is still confined to the house, but is  improving.  . D. H. Turner, nephew of Hugh  Turner, died on Thursday night, aged  36." Death was caused by consumption. He had resided in Wardner for  four years.  The Tiger mine at Burke closed  down on Thursday night. Seventy  men.W0re discharged, but a force of  ten has been retained to do prospecting and 'development work.  The petition :sent to the Bunker Hill  and Sullivan people to open their  property has been published. . It contains upward of 200 names.of citizens  pledged to support the company.  Joseph Ehrlich, of Barger & Sears'  meat market, was knocked down on  Saturday morning in front of his place,  "of business. His assailant struck him  a' heavy blow on the back of the  head, but made his escape unnoticed.  The wound inflicted was severe and  caused the blood to flow freely. No  clue has yet been obtained to the  cowardly assailant.  WTALLAOE.  John Cassey is very low in the hospital with pneumonia.  M. A. Muir, the grocer,, has reniov-  ed his store from Cedar street to the  foot of Sixth street.  The little child of John B. LeFever  died Tuesday at Gem. It was taken  to Mullan for burial. A  James Curran, from the Tiger, is  in the hospital, suffering from lead  poisoning in the hands.  Tom Cassidy, who had his leg  broken a few days ago at the Poor-  man, is getting along nicely.  Win. Dooley, of Burke, has been  discharged from hospital, where he  has been nursing a broken leg.  Wm. Cross' farmhouse, near Medi-  mont, was completely destroyed by  fire Morday night. The family is  left destitute.  John McLaughlin, of Gem, had  three fingers of his right hand badly  smashed, Thursday, by a falling rock  at the Frisco.  Thomas McAvoy, who strained his  back by lifting heavy machinery at  the Poorman last week, has recovered and returned home from the hospital.  A letter was received this week bv  MulIan parties from Longmaid Bros.,  stating that they would start up the  Morning mine in due time.    They  will pay full union wages.  Harvey, the two-year-old son of  Mr. and Mrs. Barger, of Burke, died  last Thursday. The child got hold of  a box of sugar coated pills and ate 15  of them, causing his death before  medical assistance could reach him.  The funeral took place to this town on  Saturday.  AROUND  THE  STATE.  John Gehrig and Alexander Stret-  chen attempted to cross Wood river,  near Shoshone, in a wagon, Saturday.  The current carried them down the  stream and both were drowned. The  body of Gehrig was found the next  day.  Ex-Congressman G. W. Dorsey, of  Nebraska, has arrived in Lemhi. He  is president of the Lemhi Gold Mining  Company; is examining the valuable  properties of his company and making preparations for extensive development work.  J. Williams, two or three days ago,  uncovered a rich ledge of quartz 2$  miles above 0. Corder's ranch, on Indian creek, 25 miles east of Boise on  the old stage roadi He had been  sinking prospect holes for some time  before getting the ledge. Assays  show the rock to be very rich, specks  as large as pinheads being freely  scattered through it. He has procured an outfit in Boise to open up -the  property., f  The Secretary of the. Interior has  decided the Boise military reserve  strip case ih favor of the property  owners as against the ^Government.  The land involved is a strip about 80  feet in width, which has been claimed  as a part of: the military reservation.  John, Krall claimed the larger portion  of the strip, while other property  owners claimed the balance. There  has been a great deal of difficulty in  determining the  vexatious question.  The Nabob and Christalite, two adjoining claims on Pine creek, owned  by George Stone, H. M Ross and L.  W. Gay, have been undergoing de-  velopment for some months past. The  property is six miles from the railroad, but a wagon "road will be completed to it within two Weeks. They  have a tunnel in 125 "feet, 75 feet being on the ledge. . The solid ore encountered is heavy galena, assaying  15 ounces of silver per ton. There  are 3�� feet of concentrates."  ; ,*  Pocatello indulged in a smallpox  scare last Sunday which, however,  proved to be a false alarm. A tramp  floated in Saturday night and was  gathered up by the vigilant police  and housed in the bastile of the city,  which stands among the mud pits at  the north end of Front street. Next  morning the fellow had a rash all  over his face, and the police at once  scented smallpox in the air. The  mayor was nouified and all the M.D.s  in town chased up. The investigation  developed nothing but a choice crop  of whiskey pimples.  -vXS^^USSSSIS^*!  Is issued at New Deliver, B. C, on Thursday.

Second Yea-F,  THE LEDGE.  Page3  THEKOOTENAY HOTELS  Some oi' Tlieir Characteristics Slightly  Chirograph ed.  The hotel-keepers'doing business in  the Kootenay country  are tolerably  fair specimens of the human  race.  Most of them speak    English,   and  while, as. a rule they are not  artists  in compounding mysterious morning  beverages that will suit every   taste,  most of them are able to tell rye from  Scotch.   Some of them know   more  about pounding a drill or skinning  mules than thev do about making  life -:.pleasant for   weary travellers,  but,   they are mostl y very good fel-  . lows,; some a little lazy,   but   still,  #ood fellows.    Their houses   are far  superior to what we have seen in  other districts.    It is true that the  rooms are principally telephone,  but  that has its advantages.    When   you  desire anything all you have to do is  to whisper and your wants are supplied, without, having torring   a bell,  and,   after waiting an age   pay the  bell-boy four dollars for   bringing up  John Collins or some of his near re  latives.    The telephone  room   . has  saved many   aJife, by enabling the  bartender; to rush Mr.   Collins to the  bedside of adying guest, ere it is too  late to save a thirsty sbul.    It may  be lieart-breaking to lie awake some  night   listening   to your   neighbor  telling his wife a tale of woe, but  with all its faults the telephone room  never loses its accoustic properties.  The landlords have always been  good friends to the press. The press  has reciprocated the kindness by  never publishing long sermons on the  causes of red noses, or endeavoring to  divert trade from the booze factory  to the gospel mill.  Ainsworth has two of the most intelligent landlords we have evei  known. We drifted into that town  last winter when everything was  stiil and serene, and tarried ovei  night. When leaving we threw a  twenty on the bar to settle our bill,  and to bur surprise he shoved it back  and said. "You do not me anything.  You are anewspaper man, and I recognize the fact that if it, had-not  been for the free advertising the press  lias given the Kootenay country, it  would not occupy the position it does  to-day. I appreciate the value of the  press and my house is always free to  you." We were amazed. It was the  first time a landlord had ever refused  to take our collateral, and We went  away rejoicing" that we had met. the  most'intelligent bonii'ace in the   uni-  V  ���  Headquarters of the  Nakusp & Slocan Railway.

The other day we '.returned  to Ainsworth and stopped at another  hotel To our surprise che landlord  of the second hotel would not take a  cert from us, stating that he never  charged news], a [Or men anything.  We warned him to be careful, or lie  would ha v.e ed i tors from Nelson a nd  o_ her small towns always with him.  This is no josh. We are giving true  facts, and  there will always    be    a  bright spot in our "-memory   for the  landlords of Ainsworth.  How different the treatment we received from , one each of Nelson and  Revelstoke's landlords. Both hotels  had received this paper for nearly a  year before we called for the pay.  The Nelson man said he never ordered it, and that the little local papers  were no good,- and he only wanted  coast papers..' He was not intelligent  enough to know that the most interesting portion of the coast papers  is stolen or credited matter from the  Kootenay press. We made him a  present of the bill, and apologized  rbr having sent him the paper at all.  The fellow at Revelstoke- wanted  proof that he had ordered it, and  commenced a $100' argument for a $2  account, but eventually loosened up  and paid the bill with bad grace and  two American dollars.  The Kootenay hotel man is nearly  always generous, and often feeds a  broken prospector, when many a  more pretentious class would 'turn  him away from their doors.

In a city, not a thousand miles from  Providence, there died the other day  a well known and respected citizen  who had successfully failed in busi  ness three or four times, and ''whose  widow it is believed, was pretty well  ii>:ed In consequence. He was a pillar of the church, in fact, an ostentatious and highly ornamental pillar,  and the church gave him an elaborate funeral, but the devil must have  had a hand in the selection of the  hymns.

THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1895.  MORE NAMES WANTED.  A larger list of names is wanted  for the many new claims. Prospec  tors ought to carry a dictionary and  evolve new names instead of using  the old ones over and over. There  are plenty; of Stars, Eurekas, Surprises, Echoes, Last Chances, etc.  Thousands of names have never yet  been used, and we see no necessity of  any repetition whatever. Prospectors  often apply strange names to their  properties, a prominent mine in Colorado being named the Holy Moses.  A prospector aping that name called  a claim near Creede the Jumping  Jesus, but the recorder considered it-  irreverent and would not allow it to  be used. In order to help out the  boys we suggest that some of the following names be applied to new  claims: Colon ei, Professor, Doctor,  Captain, General, Straight Flush, The  Tragic Queen, Etc., The Flowing  Bowl, The Little Cub, The Ledge,  Sow Belly, Bacon and Beans, Flap  Jack, Old Glory, Johnnie Bull, The  Golden- Stairs, The '"Kitty,. Pass in  Your Cheques, Old Nick���all very  appropriate and suggestive.     .  No agricultural fairs will be held  in the Slocan this year.  Marriage is the only 1 egal ized lottery at present allowed to do business  in.Canada.  The bicycle is a stranger in the  Slocan. Th is is on e bl essing we are  thankful for.  You may have this paper free for  two years if you will send us a copy  of the Nakusp Ledge of June 21,1894  The forest fire is about due. It lias  always done well in the Slocan and  no doubt will be fairly prosperous  this season.  Many springs of sparkling water  are to be found along the mountain  roads, and .in some places thoughtful  persons have left a tin can for those  to drink out of who come after them.
