They were after wet ore  prospects only.  WE WILL CELEBRATE.  AT   THE   CURI-IE.  While digging a trench for water  pipes; ac the Currie on the Galeiri  Farm last week an unknown ledge  was brought,into sight. It is a short  distance from the old shaft and is not  yet defined, although asurface 25x55  feet has been exposed. The ore runs  over 100 ounces in silver and is lip to  the limit in lead. The strike has  caused much excitement and its further development will be watched with  interest. It is intended to run a drift  from the old shaft to tap it further  down and the water is now being  pumped out for that purpose. Twenty  power drills and a duplex compressor  are to be put in action on this property  in the new workings. With the acldi  tion of an electric light and other improvements the Galena Mines Co.  will soon have the best equipped mine  in the Slocan.  Bought the Hot Springs.  New Denverites Preparing:  for a  Good Time Dominion Day.  Dr. Brett, of Banff, has purchased  the 'Halcyon,.- Hot Springs on Arrow lake from Sanderson & Lay for a  price slightly in advance of $20,000.  He will spend $40,000 upon the property, which will make it one of the  greatest health resorts in North America. - -:������ ' ':'��� . /��� ' '-, ��� '.  I_OCAI_   BREVITIES.

Parties interested in the Le Roi at  Rossland, are negotiating to purchase  the Mabau and Ohio for $65,000.  These properties are owned by Kirk-  wood, McKinnon, Grant. Wells and  Tunks,and are situated between the  Enterprise and Bondholder groups.  The Royal Five is the name of a  claim recently staked by T. M. Rae  and his partner. It is about three  miles from New Denver, on the. lake  shore, and about 200 yards below the  railroad track. The ledge is two feet  wide and assays show $18 in gold  and 1G7 ounces in silver.  Dr W. H. Montague, of Ottawa, in  company with Dr." Carroll,   of Van  couver,   were in New Denver this  week, and made atrindown the lake  R. 0. Matheson has opened his drug  store in Silverton.

COMMITTEES ALREADY AT WORK  Saturday evening' a representative meeting of  the citizens.of New Denver was hold in the Williamson, hlofck for the purpose of dicu3sing the advisability of holding'a celchration on July lst,and  mapping out the best plan of going: about it to  make it a success. 1 he meeting was well attended and great interest was manifested,������ it being the  unanimous verdict that New Denver would celebrate, and in the grandest manner possible. Alter  this had been settled and su.gges-ions made regarding the getting up of the affair, the meeting  ���adjourned to Monday evening.  On reconvening Monday evening the attendance was general and renewed interest was shown.  Without further ado committees were appointed  to take the matter in hand and at once push the  thing to a successful termination.  H. 0. Alexander was made permanent chairman or president, and H. M. Walker, secretary.  Committees were named as follows:  General���Messrs. Fihucane, Fauquier, Beers,  Knox, J. Aylwin, Gibbs. D. Walker, Alexander.  VV. Taylor, H. M. Walker, A. Mclnnes, R.  Thompson and McLeod. *?,.*,'  On Transportation���Messrs. Finiicane, Lowery  and Thomlinson.  On Grounds���J.-Avlwin, W. II. Gibbs and D.  Walker.  On Sports���Messrs. Fa urjuier, AV.

These.committees are at work in their various  departments and, although little has. been done  thus far, yet it is promised that this celebration  will lie unsurpassed for sport and pleasure. Sandon, Slocan City, Silverton, Nakusp and all surrounding towns will be asked to participate. It is  probable a lacrosse ar baseball game will be pla> -  ed with Sandon, and a football game,with Slocan  City. The athletic and aquatic sports will be so  arranged so as to be witnessed by everybedy. A  point will be made to have the best contests that  2,-ood purses will bring about; . not too much but  just enough to satisfy all.  Arrangements will be made with the G. P. R.  and lake boats for special excursion rates, and  provisions will be made for an attendance quite as  large as that at Slocan City, May 21.  The finance committee report flattering progress  and funds enough are already pledged to insure a  successful celebration.  KASLO.  Frl-  on  the  AINSWORTH.  A meeting of the Highland people was held  in Nelson last week. E. L. Carter was re-elected to the management.!  The Tarn Q'Shanter. across tlie lake from Ainsworth, is being incorporated.   It was lately bond  ed to Herbert Cuthbert for *l2,()yo, and  six  men  are at work on a c.ros.aut.  The owners of the Madden House, Nelson, have  bought a couple of lots opposite McLellan's new  house, the Anglo-American, and it is said they intend building a three-story hotel on the property  A Jenekes hoist Ifor the Little Mamie was  delivered in   Ainsworth on   Saturday.   It is  now being placed in position.  The owners will  increase   the force considerably in the. near-  future.  The Tariff mine broke into a new ore chute  in the south drift on the LVJ-foot level last  week. Twenty men are now employed on the  property. A new Cameron pump was recently  placed in position. There is some talk of a  tram and concentrator on this property.  Timbers were laid down in Ainsworth last  week to commence the construction of a tramway from the Highlander. A concentrator is  also to be built on the lake shore. The Highlander is the property of Maxwell Stevenson,  of Philadelphia, who is expected to arrive in  Ainsworth shortly.  J. P. Miller of the Black Diamond, owns interests in some properties on Woodbury creek, on  which development work is now being, done.  There are two groups, the Native Silver and Luck  Bill, crosscuts arc being run on both. The first  shows ore almost identical with that of the Arlington, assaying 217 ounces. On the other group  assays go;s.'in,gold,'j:-i ounces of silver and 11;.;.  lead".  Byron N. White was in town Saturday.  C. W. Callahan was1 at the Kaslo Friday.  Neil Gething registered at the Slocan on Saturday.  Dr. Em il Poll! registered from  Portland  day.  Dr. R. W. Begg, of Toronto, was  in   town  Saturday.  >, A tunnel contract for '>X> feet is to be let on  Montezuma.  Con. Fielding was in town on Saturday on  some business regarding interests on the south  fork of Kaslo.  Adams Bros', claims, eight miles "up  the  lake  from here, will make a shipment next week.   A  trail has been cut to  the claims and  some ver*'  nice ore is being taken out. .,...-."  The first-prospecting permit taken out here in  accordance with the amendment was issued to YV.  E. Mann on Saturday. It gives him undisputed  possession for three months, to the Hidden Fraction in the Whitewater basin.  Tho. sale of the Nancy Hanks, Maud S.HazA-l C,  Frenzo and Last Link, Whitewater properties, by  W. A. Ross to R. E. Brown was recorded. Price  ".30,0'JO. 0. G. Labree transferred a 4/5 interest in  an option on the Granite and Little Maud claims  to XV. B.Ives.   .,....-'  Last week's Kaslo records are of only ordinary  interest. There were rather fewer locations than  for the previous few weeks and the usual number  of licences, about 100, taken out. In the transfers  i Eli Carpenter sold,a sixth interest in the Slocan  Chief and Kootenav Queen to Alex. Sproat for  :10C0, half cash.  The Kaslo sampler made a shipment on Tuesday of nine cars of Ruth ore. The Washington  and Whitewater have sent down no ore during  the past week. The An to ihe is now shipping  steadily, The A jax sent down a carload of very  rich ore last week. The Black Diamond sent in  four cars from A ins worth. T he S u i isct is a stca dy  shippei'.  Dr. E.'O. Brett, formerly of Banff Hot Springs,  was in Kaslo over Sunday. Dr. Brett has disposed of a part of his practice and a part of his  interest in the Sanitarium at Banff, and, associated with D. H. McPherson, of Calgary, has purchased for $25,000 the Hale von Hot "Springs Hotel.  It is their intention to add to and extensively improve that institution making it second to none as  a watering place and sanitarium. Dr. Brett is  one of the best known members of the medical  'profession lin Canada; ncl his (o me-tion with this  enterprise equals a guarantee of its success.  Speaking of records, etc.: The'-.publication  of the amendment in the Ledge a few weeks ago  must have come to some parties as timely information. A prospector returned from the Lardeau  Duncan country last week and reported having  found a post, the inscription on which read: 'I,  John Smith, claim 1500 feet in all directions from  this stake." The stake was about as big around  as a telegraph pole and leaned against a stump.  The prospector dropped the remark that the Gold  Hills or some other concern has a crowd of brilliant explorers in the Upper Duncan.  Reports have reached here of a rich strike of  free gold made last week on Goat creek below  Dovie, by a German syndicate who have been  working some galena propositions in that neigh  borhcodfor .the past two years. Parties who  came in from there say that the tadge is five feet  wide and has been shown up with little work  across two claims. The locators have been working in the immediate vicinity and have passed  over the ledge continually for the two years.  Some very high assays have been gotten from  samples brought in and considerable excitement  is evinced regarding the iind.  Prospectors are now going into the hills from  this point in large numbers. A party in from  Crawford bay Tuesday stated that they had met  no less than 22 going up the fcreek. Numbers of  them arc also moving for the Fort Steele and the  St. Mary's countries. Not so many are moving  for the Lardo-Duncan country as lor the past  three weeks though some good locations are rc-  ported from that district. The Argenta townsite  has been purchased and preparations made to  boom it this summer In the White Grouse country it has been impossible to do much work so far  on account of the lieavy snow. A great many of  the prospectors who have goncoutaremen entirely unacquainted with the conditions and im unusual .number, .of forest tires and accidents may be  expected.  New   Denver's   Band.  A    XV  iigon  Road.  Counterfeit Silver Dollars.  Counterfeit silver d illar.s are being, circulated in  Spokane. A auspicious character lias been seen  in town and - is well for Slocan merchants to be  on the watch for spurious coins, The bogus pieces  in S lok.tne weiv d tied iss-,.  Messrs. Finiicane and McDonell are  taking subscriptions for the building  of a wagon road between New Denver and Three Forks. In the neighborhood of $2,0CQ was subscribed in  I New Denver yesterday, and it looks  as if the necessary money would be  raised without much difficulty. The  Government will bear half of the expense.     rl he  road   will   cost   about  -$10,000.-  The Semi-Annual meeting of the New Denver  Band, took place in their band room on Sunday, .-iOtli May. The minutes of previous meeting were read and adopted. A vote of thanks  was tendered to the officers for their services  during the past term, and by unanimous vote  re-elected for another term.  A.

They also intend to give a. seriesjoiOpen  air concerts during the season.  THE   CROW'S   5TEST   KAIL,WAY.  Dan Mann, of Montreal, and Wm.  'McKenzie, of Toronto, have been  given the contract to build the Crow's  Nest Pass Railway from Fort McLeod  to Nelson. The distunce is 330 miles  and the cost will be about $8,000,000.  The road will bo completed as rapidly  as possible.  r^s^^^-m^^^^^M^^ME THE   LEDGE,  Fourth  Year.  A Rossland Theory  -4By our own Correspondent.]  These instances of increased size and richness  of nearly all ore bodies in this camp as depth is  attained tend to confirm my belief that every  mine within a large radius of Rossland will strike t  rich ore, and immense deposits of it, if only the  shaft be sunk deep enough. I have an idea that  at a depth of a few hundred feet the ore body -will  be found underlying the district for miles, and  that, too, of greater richness in gold than is at present dreamed of.     '  Let me explain my theory. iEons ago this old  world of ours was engaged in the task "of settling  down to a compact sphere such as it now. But  the process >vas probably millions of years in operation Naturally the outer crust hardened  lirst, and as ages passed on the rock formations  began to upliit from the molten mass, and the  cooling process went on faster. But the boiling  metals and other component parts of the planets'  make-up were restless at being'.k ribbed, cabined  and confined" in the lower darkness of the interior, especially in the mountainous districts which  seem to be the last portion of tlie earth to settle  down into respectable quietude.  Well, the forces of nature were at work in the  boiling cauldron beneath and in the heart of these  mountains and ever and anon such terrific upheavals took place as to send the very rocks  above, and the molten liquid, spurting up, filled  the fissures thus made, and even overflowed and  tilled other fissures from the surface.    Thes latter  veins may petre out with depth, as they are merelyfissures idled by  the overflow because  they  happened to be open, and handy for such overflow to enter.   They were filled from above.   But  the true fissure, being burst open by forces from  below, will certainly become richer  in  gold as  denth is attained, because when the upheaval sub-;  sided, gold, being and of the heaviest metals,  would  naturally  sink below the other minerals  which were mixed up with it in the upheaval,  while of course, impregnating the whole mass,  even to the very surface.    Then, if the gold sank  to the bottom during the cooling process it is only  reasonable to suppose tha the  deeper  a  shaft is  sunk on a true fissure the greater will be the percentage of gold in the ore body  found,   and also  that the -aid ore bOd.y will become of greater and  greater proportions, till at some depth���maybe too  deep for us mortals to penetrate���The  richest of  minerals will be met with in such immense deposits that no hanging or foot wall could ever le  found.  These mountains, with others in various parts  of the world, appear to liav9 been the last spouting place of Mother Earth in her internal convulsions before settling down to the everyday life of  a Avell-behaved planet, and here we may expect,  to find the richest gold deposits ever opened up in  the world's history. Only it takes money, and a  great deal of it, to open up a gold mine, aiid a  poor man can never attempt to work his claim,as  is the case with galena properties.

Strs International  Mineral In Place.  Colonel Baker has made an amendment to the  mineral act, which defines ther meaning of the  phase mineral .in place.   The minister of mines  accepted the interpretatioii of the full court iu the  Paris Belle case. The section reads: "Rock in  place shall be deemed to mean and include minerals not necessarily in a vein or lode, that is, when  discovered in the same place or position in which  it was originally formed, or deposited, as distinguished from loose, fragmentary or broken  rock or float; which by decomposition is found in  wash gravel or sand. Valuable deposits of mineral shall mean and include mineral in place in appreciable quantity having a present or prospective  value suiFcient to justify exploration."

We handle'  Only the celebrated  ��olcl Six Million Tons.  It is understood that -very heavy sales of iron  ore have been made not less than 0,000,000 tons a*  least, or about half of the earlier expectations of  the full season's output.   This is a good deal more  than may have been inferred by the talk of dull  business and no sales heard for the past few weeks*  It'is evident, too, that more ore will be shipped  from Duluth than from any other lake port,  Escanaba having heretofore led, and also that  Minnesota will send out very considerably more  than any other state, for the first time in its  history.  The Carnegie interest will, of course, lead in  shipment, and are now expected to take not less  than 2,000,000 tons from this city. It has also  bought.400,000 tons of Vermilion range, ore and  some from the Gogebic and Marquette ranges in  t. Michigan. The Illinois Steel company has "nearly 1,000,000 tons of ore coming from Minnesota  and the various steel companies intciested on the  Mesaba will all mine heavily. Ore at the rate^of  700,000 a year is now going from the Mahoning  mine to furnaces in the Mahoning valley and to  the Cambria Iron company of Johnstown, Pa.  The Mountain Iron mine will begin shipping  300 cars at once to the Carnegie furnaces. The  fourth steam shovel has been put in. This means  a total daily shipment of about 7,000 tons. The  Ohio ;mine, recently bought by Rockefeller, has  begun shipments to this city. Vessel tonnage to  move this ore from Duluth to lake ports during  June and July were chartered Saturday at GO  cents. The ore will be shipped from the Carnegie  mines and used by him. The boats, which are all  large steamers, Avere chartered by the Bessemer  Steamship company. Among them .were the  Carnegie, Recs, Yuma, Sitka, Bangor, Pope,  Eddy, Lagonda, Yale and Glasgow. The Bessemer Steamship company, which has the contract to move all Carnegie ore, already has  eighteen 5000 ton ships of its own iu operation, as  well .as four 3000 tonners under charter. With  this wholesale new charters the company will be  a hie to move 3,000,000 tons during the season,  some of which will be Rockefeller ore, but most of  which is for the Carnegie company. These shipments, together with what other vessels may  trade to the Rockefeller docks here, and the ore to  he moved by.the Minnesota Iron company as well  as the Mahoning company's amount, will beat all  previous records for the state and probably put it  in .the lead of all other states and second to no  European nation in the quantity of its ore mined.  ���Minn ".Journal.  Gold and Silver.  Washington, June 1.���Mr. Preston,director of  the mint, has .about completed his figures of the  gold and silver production in the United States  during the calender year 189G. He finds the production of gold to have been about 653,000,000, an  increase of over $0,250,000 as compared with 1.395.  The production of silver is given as 57.700,000 fine  ounces, an increase of 1,900,000 ounces over 1895.  The principal gold producing states, with their  product last year, in ounces, as compared with  Preston's figures for 1895, are given as follows:  California, 721,000, a decrease of 571.

I,  Now, Patrick Maloney, from County Kildare,  Was strongly addicted to ruin. r  So much so, that folks were heard to declare  That Pat was a bibulous bum.  Sometimes he'd brace up for  two months  at a  stretch,  And his friends on.his conduct would brag.  When all of a sudderi.this ill-fated wretch  Would show up with a beautiful jag.  They would dursehim, they'd coax him, they'd  send him to jail,  His name he'd attach to the pledge,  But all of these means to reform him would fail;  He would go off and get as tight as a wedge.  Some said that his weakness was due to disease,  Some said'twas original sin;  And while v,hey were tacking such problems  as,  ..* these,  " " .* ���-,..���������   .' ��� ' ���...

But his breath was deodorised���praised be the  'saints,.  And his nose wore a temperance hue;  So Bridget bore up without making complaint  As she thought it her duty to do.  But through the long hours of that terrible night,  As Pat slept with his face to the wall,  Bitter thoughts of a  rival���some, charmer at  Dwight;  . Kept Bridget from sleeping at all.

At last, in a wild burst of grief, she implored  That he'd tell her what made hini so cold,  Be jabbers, me darling,T am thinking, he raved,  It's that devilish bi-chloride of gold.  For women and wine are so closelj allied  They both have their pleasures and pains,  No antidote, nature can ever provide,  y^ill bar one, while the other remains.
