'  A flock ol sheep pasturing on the  townsite is the unfamiliar sight here  this week.  J. E. W.   Macfarlane,   manager of  the  B.  C. Iron Works,   Vancouver,  arrived in this country on Friday, at  the earnest solicitation  of the firm's  representative,   J. Findley.     Of late  the firm has been doing a lot of work  for this camp,  and in  view of very  probable extensions here,  Mr. Macfarlane came in to personally inspect  the camp and size up the situation.  To this work he has been devoting  his time since,    and   what   he has  beheld has been an eye-opener to him.  This has been his first   visit to the  Slocan, but he has seen sufficient to  keep   him marveling for months to  come.    Mr. Macfarlane realizes that  there    are:  branches  of mining in  British Columbia other than "auriferous deposits, "as the wise coast papers  are continualiy harping upon.    He  sees  that  the   hydraulic   works of  Cariboo are child's play in comparison  with what is going on in Kootenay.  The B. C. Iron  Works have lately  purchased the plant of one of the New  Westminster foundries, and it is to be.  located in West  Kootenay,  and be  devoted to mining machinery..   Mr.  Macfarlane   is   continuing   his trip  through the district and will select a  suitable site for the works.  Twelve Mile creek is looming up  as a possible camp.  Many new strikes are being made  alpng the Kaslo railway grade.  ; Frank Dick is securing  numerous  assays from Cariboo creek and the  returns are invariably satisfactory.  The Alpha people will build a concentrator at Four Mile tills summer.  The B. C. Iron Works have the contract.  G^o. Graham, conductor on the N.  &S.R., has purchased Black & Mc-  Lennan's quarter interest in the  Green leaf.    . ���  Gold, in more or less quantities, is  to be found  on   every   location  on  ..

The stockholders of the Slocan  Milling Co. wiU meet in special meeting, at the concentrator, on July 1, to  elect a board of trustees and dispose  of general business.  Monday, July 1,- a special meeting  of the stockholders of the Minnesota  Silver Co. will be held at t.^e concentrator, to elect a board of trustees, and  transact.other important business.   .  A special meeting of the stockholders of the Alamo Mining Co. is called  for Monday, July 8, at the concentrator, to elect a board of trustees, and  to transact other items of general importance.  The owners of the Noble Five group  have given the B. C. Iron Works, of  Vancouver, an order for a tramway  from that property to Cody. Terminal grounds have been granted by  the townsite owners. A survey of the  line will be ��� made, in a week. .!  J.. Whittier, of the Goddenough  Fraction, was down on Saturday. He  reported that property looking promising, but all work had been suspended for a while, owing to the leakage  of water from the melting snowrS;  Five inches of the beautiful fell there  on Friday night.  Heavily Capitalized.  Articles of incorporation have been  taken out at Spokane tor the O. K.  Mining Company. The capital is  set a t ijl, 000,000 in shares of the par  value of fcl. The incorporators were  Di J. Hughes, John G. Cole, J. R.  Kieley, C. P. Oudin and J. E. McColl.  Spokane is designated as tlie principal place of business. It is the intention of the company to carry on a  general mining business in northern  Washington and British Columbia,  chiefly Trail Creek.  Pays Iiig Dividends.  At a meeting of the owners of the  War Eagle mine, on Trail creek, held  in Spokane last week, a dividend was  declared wherein 150,000 in cash will  be divided among the stockholders.  It is evident that the mine has improved since the last tlividcnd of  6�� cents on the dollar 'was declared.  ������.._������., i    _t^-i ���������   -       -��� i.  Done Up in a Hurry.  The following little Spokane news  item will be read with interest: Mrs.  Anna M. Ivemp, Tuesday afternoon,  brought suit for divorce against her  husband, Randall H. Kemp, on the  ground of non-support. No defense  was offered and Judge Buck allowed  the petition. The entire proceedings  occupied about three minutes of the  court's time, arid is believed to be a  record breaker in the divorce line. Page 2.  THE LEDGE.  Second Tear  CCEUR   D'ALENE NUGGETS.

All people, born in America are  Americans, although the term is generally applied to natives of the United  States. Those who are fortunate  enough to be.from Canada are called  Canadians, to distinguish them from  Uncle Saih's children. The American  on this side of the line is to be found  principally in the mining camps.  They are a class of people who possess a desire to become rich in a day  at their own or somebody else's expense. The American is very numerous in Kootenay, and finds it very  congenial to his pocket., cHe has been  here a long time and has done more  to open our mines than any. other  kind of an individual. They have  been ,located well on this side of the  line, iu fact much better than a band  of Canadians would be in the States.  They are allowed great liberty, even  to celebratitig the Fourth of July.  While we would prefer to see the  riches of .this country handled by residents, still it is much better to have  the mining industry developed and  the ore shipped across the line than  to have nothing done at all. A certain amount of the wealth paid to the  miners will be spent in Canada, and  the balance will enrich the capitalists  of the United States, who are enterprising enough to know a good thing  when they see it.  A CHANCE FOR DENVER.  We understand that it is the inten.  tion of the British Columbia Iron  Works, of Vancouver, to locate a  branch of their establishment in West  Kootenay, for the purpose of -manufacturing: all descriptions of mining  and milling . machinery. The plant  is one that was formerly located in  New Westminster, and will be sufficiently large to warrant any town in  the district in putting forth strenuous  efforts to secure its location. Two  score hands would be employed, and  wherever situated it would prove a  valuable factor in building up that  place. Mr. Macfarlane, manager of  the British Columbia Iron Works, is  now touring through the district, and  will decide upon the site. ���I  One thing certain the works will'  have to be centrally located and  handy- the mines.    Iff the Slocan is to  be the leading camp in the district,  and we believe it is, then the site  must be chosen to command -hat  trade. In such event no place is so  well favored as New Denver. True,  we cannot as readily r offer a bonus  as Kaslo, because we are not incorporated. But we can offer a free  building site, which is, as it were, but  a stone's cast from the leading mines  of the camp. We would respectfully  urge the citizens of the town���and for  enterprise we challenge their equals  ���to move all the forces at their command to get the proposed works established here. They will never regret it.           a -_----__-_-___-��^-_-----_--_-------m---_b  It is a common report that one of  the most prominent smelters in the  United States has a man looking up  a site for a smelter in this country.

Canada has now a canal of, its own  around the insurmountable rapids on'  the Sault Ste. Marie river, and her  shipping is no longer at the mercy of  the fickle policy of the United States  Department of Marine. The canal  has'been two years or more in building and is constructed on the most  scientific principles. It was thrown  open to commerce on Thursday, without any particular ceremony whatsoever. Canadians love to be independent.  Friends of the white metal will find  food for thought and cause for congratulation in the astonishing result  of the telegraphic poll made by the  New York World last week as to the  complexion of the next United States  Congress on the silver question. Out  of 116 members who gave a plain reply to the query put to them, 55 were  in favor of free coinage; 44 favored  bimetallism generally, with the proviso of an international agreement,  and only 17 adhere to the gold standard. Some of the latter even are  not definite as to their platform. The  southern and western States were  unanimous for free silver. This is  truly a remarkable verdict, particularly when compared with the feeling  of two years ago. It demonstrates  forcibly with what tremendous strides  the cause of silver is progressing.  Capt.

Jones, merchant at Fort  Steele, East Kootenay, and also at  Jennings, Montana, besides being  part owner of the steamer Annerley,  which plies between these points on  the Kootenay river, was in Spokane  last week on a business trip.  The Annerley is the only boat plying between the two points mentioned  She is 95 feet long and has a register  tonnage of 75 tons.    She has powerful  machinery,  which   is  necessary   to  force her over the rapids a few miles  above  Jennings,   where   the  river  rushes through a canyon.    In high  water it is necessary to line over the  rapids to prevent the boat from being  dashed to pieces on the big rocks that  obstruct the centre of the channel  At the present stage of the water the  steamer goes through without lining.  These are the obstructions that have  been examined by the American authorities with a view to their removal.  There are also shallow rapids which  make navigation difficult at low wa-  arid it is desired to have these removed.  The distance from Jennings to Fort  Steele is 150 miles. It takes the boat  two days to go up and only eight  hours to conic dewn. Jennings is on  the Great Northern and the Annerley  was built the year the road was completed. She did little business last  year owing to the hard times, but is  now making weekly trips, leaving  Jennings every Monday, carrying  freight and passengers int:> the Fort  Steele mining country and Tobacco  Plains.  She will soon begin carrying ore  from the North Star mine, from a  point five miles above Fort Steele, and  will make,two trips a week so soon  as the ore traffic will justify it. The  North star is regarded as a great  property. It is a silver lead proposition, with a vein nearly 60 feet wide,  assaying 45 ounces in silver and 63  per cent. lead. A wagon road, 16  miles long, has been built from the  landing on the river to the mine, and  ore shipments will commence early  next month.  The Kootenav river is navigable  40 miles above Fort Steele, and' there  is also a steamer on this route. There  is a wagon bridge at Fort Steele that  cost several thousand dollars, which  ha? a draw to permit of the passage  of the steamer.  Mr Jones savs the country is very  a. _, K  rich and all that it lacks is development. Times are getting better in  there, and many new prospectors and  settlers are arriving.  Thos. Berry, sawyer, sustained a  com pound fracture of the leg, Thursday, by being caught in the beltirigj  at the Nelson Sawmill Co.'s works at  Rossland :     ' ���:*"'./���      *  -r���  Certificate of Improvements.  ; NOTICE.
